Release + Review - Ruin - Lila Rose



 

Joshua “Ruin” May has been a dick in the past. He’s trying to rectify one such dickish moment by helping out a friend, and he wants to make sure this time he doesn’t let her down. His journey leads him to Melbourne and a whole heap of unexpected trouble, namely an irritating crime boss.
 
Wolf.
 
A man who gets on his nerves and seems to revel in winding him up.
 
The good-looking douche sparks something unexpected in Ruin, leaving him confused.
 
With so much to lose and potentially everything to gain, Ruin has a choice to make. Will he figure himself out and make the ultimate decision that will change his future?
 
NOTE: This is the second book in the Hawks MC (next generation) series and it revolves around Ruin (Stoke's son) finding his love interest more than club life.


Louise's Review

Ruin is book 2 in the Hawks MC: Next Generation, a MM romance that has all the feels.

From the moment that Ruin and Wolf saw each other there was sparks, Ruin may not have known that those were but close quarters and Wolf’s continued flirting their chemistry was explosive and not deniable. Wolf wanted to change the future for his family’s business and Ruin was trying to find his path; they just so happen to lead to each other!

I personally enjoyed this story, one thing I know for sure is when Lila Rose releases a MM story you can guarantee that its going to be great! I cannot wait for book 3 in the series, I have fallen in love with the Hawks MC all over again.

EXCERPT
 
Wolf looked to his watch. “I have to go.”
“Okay.” I nodded.
His gaze dipped down my body. “Are you sure you want me to go?”
My gut twisted. I looked down and saw I was half hard. “It’s called mornin’ wood.” And that was all it was. It had nothing to do with the guy in the room who looked at me like I was dessert.
Christ. It really didn’t.
“You weren’t before.”
“I was, you just didn’t notice, and why the fuck am I explainin’ anythin’ to you?” Turning my back on him, I adjusted myself and begged my dick to quit trying to get attention from just anyone.
Wolf chuckled low behind me. “I think he likes my attention.”
“You’re wrong. I’m goin’ for a shower.” I started for the bathroom.
“See you tonight, Ruin,” he practically purred.
I flicked a hand over my shoulder. “Whatever.”
More laughter followed before my bedroom door closed. I looked down at my dick. “What the fuck, man?” Of course I didn’t get an answer, but I swear to Christ, my dick had a mind of its own.

Release + Review - My Lucky #13 - Piper Rayne

 

Lucky.

The one adjective used to describe my entire hockey career. I prefer to call it hard work, at least I did until my game went to complete crap. I haven’t scored in eight games and my team owner is talking about trading me. 

I’ve never believed in superstitions. Never needed one. I suppose I was “lucky” in that way. But now the best way to refer to me is desperate. I’d wear the same socks for an entire year just to be the high-scoring center I used to be. 

Imagine my surprise when after spending New Year’s Eve with a woman, I score a hat trick in the next game—that’s three goals in one game for you non-hockey lovers. Now, I have to track  her down and bribe her to do it again before every game. Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not talking about it.

I find her and when I get to know her better, I end up spending more time thinking about her than my game, but she’s made it clear she wants no part of me. She’s going to learn that I didn’t become a professional hockey player without having to fight for what I want.


Johnaka's Review 
“Superstitions, 5 stars”

When Aiden met Saige, he wanted her, but she was on a date with someone else. That night though, changed everything for him. Ever since his game has gone downhill, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get it back. Even if it means having his agent's girl throw a drink in his face.

Saige can’t deny that she’s attracted to Aiden, but she made herself a promise long ago that she wouldn’t date another athlete. When he comes to her asking for help though, she can’t say no, she just has to keep him at arm's length.

City to city the bond between these two grows along with the chemistry. Aiden can’t help but wonder, is she really taken or is she putting up a wall to protect herself? Saige can’t help but wonder, is Aiden worth the risk? Only one way to find out.

Plot-5/5 Characters-5/5 Heat-5/5 Writing style-5/5 Overall-5/5


Louise's Review

My Lucky #13 is the 1st book in the fresh new Hockey Hotties series; a different direction for Piper & Rayne and one that I couldn’t put down. 

Number 13 is unlucky for a lot of people but for Aiden it was lucky; his career had been exceptional and when his performance takes a dive and his position in the team is questioned, maybe its time to find that superstition. Saige has been burnt before; athletes are her no go they will only leave you with a broken heart; but Aiden has shown her a side of him that she never thought existed. Is it all real or is she just a distraction?

I personally loved this story, Piper & Rayne are one of my all time favourite authors and their writing and story lines have just gotten better and better through the years and I am so excited for this series.

Release + Review - Kitty Kitty - Lani Lynn Vale

 


This is the story of a man falling in love with a woman.

A man that was supposed to be a role model, and a woman that was just barely twenty-one.

A man who should’ve known better, and a woman that didn’t know that she was destroying his career word by word, innocent touch by innocent touch, smile by smile, until it had already imploded.

The world collapses around Absinthe ‘Sin’ Solomon, and the only thing he can do is try not to take her down with him.

The moment the inevitable happens, and the gavel bangs signaling that he will spend the next nine years in prison for attempted murder, Sin tries to let go. But Blaise Mackenzie has never, not ever, been one to give up without a fight. 

Her military career might be over, but her career as a prison guard is just about to get started.

And her favorite prisoner? A pissed-off older man, a drill sergeant dishonorably discharged from the Army that tells himself daily that the new ‘Kitty Kitty’ female prison guard is not for him.

After following him around for years, watching over him from afar in any way she can, Sin is released early. And the first person that he’s going to see? A stubborn little blonde-headed female that should’ve known better than to trust a man like him.


Johnaka's Review
“I love it! 5 stars”

I loved Sin and Blaise. When I read the blurb, I was instantly intrigued. When I read the sneak peek, I wanted more. Then once Kitty Kitty hit my kindle, I devoured it in one sitting. I loved how they met, how even after everything blew up they were loyal to one another, even though they had never crossed a line. Then once they crossed the line, it was fire. I wanted nothing more than for these two to get a HEA.

Everything about Kitty Kitty did it for me. I cannot wait to see what Vale gives us next.

Release + Review - Destined - A.M Madden

 


From USA Today Bestselling Author, A.M. Madden, is a heartwarming, childhood sweethearts stand-alone spin-off novel from The Back-Up Series.

We were destined.
How could we not be?
Our dads were famous rock stars and best friends.
As a kid, I practically lived at his house.
We did everything together.

My first kiss at only nine.
I knew I’d marry him one day.
Took my virginity on prom night.

Wrote songs about me.
Was sweet and kind, loving and caring.
The sun rose and set on him.
I trusted him with my heart.
And he loved me.

With my dad’s help, my love became a talented bass player .
He was destined to find fame.
I wanted that for him.
And then it happened.

The opportunity to tour with one of the hottest rock stars around.
Thirteen weeks wasn’t long to be apart.
Not in the grand scheme of things.
Except I had no idea who I was without him.
He got his wish—and I lost myself.
Maybe we weren’t so destined after all.

 Johnaka's Review 
“The end, 4 stars”

Destined is the end of a Lair world (as far as I know) and it’s crazy to think about. We watched Shane and Alivia’s parents all fall in love. We witnessed their first kiss and then we get Destined. We watch their love really unfold. We watch them struggle as a young couple who want nothing more than to be together but also know they need to spread their wings a little before they can.

Destined will make your heart hurt at times. You will want to punch Shane and slap Alivia but then you will remember they are young. Don’t worry, they don’t do anything to jeporidize their HEA. And through it all you watch their parents guide them and honestly, I was here for it.

If you're looking for a New Adult Rockstar romance, look no further.

“An adrenaline rush of a romance that made my heart race and my soul shake. So HEADY. So HEART-POUNDING. So HEARTFELT. So YES!!!”Karen, Bookalicious Babes Blog

 

Shift 

Dustin Bridges has always had two things he could count on—his fearless instincts behind the wheel and the support of his two best friends, Tommy and Hannah Judge. 

Dustin brought the speed. 

Tommy, the brains. 

And Hannah . . . she was the glue that held everyone together. 

Together, they were unstoppable. 

From the dirt tracks of their youth to the late-night drag races under a desert moon as teens, the Judge siblings pushed and watched in awe as their friend edged closer to his dream. Always racing, always running. That was Dustin’s gift and curse. And while his life at home was unbearable, his world with the Judges always seemed perfect. 

Growing up with people makes for a special bond. But sometimes life has a way of testing just how strong a relationship is. And falling in love with one of your best friends, not to mention your other best friend’s sister? Well, that can be the toughest test of all. 

Heartbreak doesn’t know what it’s up against, though, because when there is a prize to be won, nobody bets against Dustin Bridges. 

 Jenn's Review 

Whew what a hot book! Shift is the first in the fuel trilogy. This book has many twists and turns that will leave you wondering how the heck we got to the end! It does end on a cliffy, but it's well worth it. I loved the racing aspect added in with the forbidden love. It made for an interesting adventure.

The plot of this book is great. The dynamics between Dustin, Tommy, and Hannah is written perfectly. I truly felt the anticipation and angst bleeding from the pages. The way the characters were feeling hit me in the gut and made me want to cry or get angry for them.

Needless to say, I cannot wait for book 2 to come out. I am in desperate need to see what happens next. 

Wreck and Burn

(Books 2 and 3)

Wreck continues Dustin and Hannah’s story four years later, and book 3, Burn, completes their love story in their mid 20s.

Release + Review - Killian - Cala Riley

 



Greer

My life isn’t a fairytale. I might be locked up like a princess, but I’m more rebellious than I let on. While my brother might be the Don of the Catalini family, he does not know the secrets I’ve been keeping.

That’s how I meet him.

Killian O’Reilly.

This might be the most dangerous thing I’ve ever done.

Killian

This life isn’t for everyone. Being the boss of the Westie’s comes with a load of responsibilities. One’s I’ve never rebelled against.

Until her.

Greer Catalini.

Pursuing her might start a war, but anything thing worth having is worth the risk.


Louise's Review 
Killian is book 2 in ‘The Syndicates Series’, this story has all the feels and I have been hanging for a while to get my hands on both their stories as they have featured in other Cala Riley books. 

Greer has been living in Italy, shipped off by her brother – before that she had a connection one that she never told her family about. Killian is getting what he wants even if that means risking it all by making a deal. Will everything work out or will the result ruin everything?

I personally enjoyed this story, Cala Riley have delivered yet another amazing story and continue to have me reading their stories in 1 sitting. 

I cannot wait for more from this duo!!!

Release + Review - Camden Walker Apartment 8c - Aly Stiles

 



Damaged.

Drifter.

Genius.

After surviving severe trauma, Camden Walker has spent his life being trapped by labels. Now, at age twenty-seven, he’s fine being the gifted artist not wired for a world that’s left him scarred. All he wants is to break free and find the beauty that’s been stolen from him.

Smart.

Successful.

Painfully ordinary.

Olivia Price is used to being invisible and living in the shadow of her younger sibling. The fact that Olivia is secretly in love with her sister’s boyfriend is just another example of craving what Claire takes for granted.

But when Claire dumps Camden without a thought, Olivia can’t let go of the haunted green eyes she’s loved for so long—especially when they finally see her too.

Because maybe it takes the one not wired for this world to appreciate the one who’s been ignored by it.

 And maybe it takes the only person who’s ever understood the wounded artist to show him he’s as radiant as his art.

 

Louise's Review 

Camden Walker: Apartment 8c is book 2 in the Wreck Me series, a story that is emotional and will have you wanting to fix everything. 

Dumped and living in a horrible apartment, a job that is just getting him by, Camden only wants to create his art and put his past behind him. 

Olivia has had a crush, one that she has kept hidden for years and now she has a chance to spill her true feelings and put her feelings first. 

I personally enjoyed this story, it took my emotions for a ride that is for sure. I have loved every story that I have read of Aly’s and I cam looking forward to what comes next.

Release + Review - Forever After All - Kaylee Ryan

 


McKenna
 
I’ve always had a thing for my best friend’s older brother. In fact, I’ve been planning our wedding since elementary school. Then I grew up, moved away, and studying, and law school became my only focus.
 
Now that I’m back, the sexy cowboy is everywhere I turn. I shouldn’t mind so much as Rip Callahan is all levels of fine. My problem? His presence… his attention is sending me in a spin. And our reconnection? It’s fast and intense and everything I’ve ever dreamed of.
 
So why am I getting in my own way?
 
 
Rip
 
I didn’t know the first kiss I ever had would still play on my mind over ten years later. But with beauty and brains, McKenna Dawson is under my skin and very much off-limits.
 
Crushing on my sister’s best friend isn’t the worst part. That connection? I can’t ignore it. Should I fight it? Probably. Do I want to? Absolutely not.
 
A challenge among friends is all it takes for me to know she’s what I’ve been missing. That and one incredible trip with those same friends means there’s no going back. Not for me.
 
 
It was only supposed to be a weekend, but maybe we were meant to be forever after all.

Louise's Review

Forever After All is a fantastic standalone story that takes you on a journey from the moment you read page 1.

Rip and McKenna have been friends for a long time, playing together in the back of their houses, there has always been something there for them and when McKenna comes home after getting her degree Rip knows this is his chance.

I personally enjoyed this story, Ryan creates amazing romances that have you hooked from the beginning.

Release + Review - Falling For The Villain - M. Robinson & Rachel Van Dyken

 


From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.

“Play for me, Juliet…”

Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear.
Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.

I was his.

He made me need him, just as much as he needed me.
I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.  

During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world.
His subjects and me.

During the night—he bowed before my feet.  

Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?
You’ll soon find out.

It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.
And it all ended with me…

Calling him master.    

*This story is not for the faint of heart and may be uncomfortable for some readers. But, then again, stepping outside of your comfort zone may be exactly the thing you need…

Care to play with us, readers?


Johnaka's Review
“Kidnapping and training, 4 stars”


He’s wanted her since the moment he saw her and has waited, and now he has her. He just needs to break her to put her back together. Show her what she can be.

She thought she was happy and then she was kidnapped. Now her captor has her questioning everything. She shouldn’t want the man who ripped her away from her life, right?

I highly enjoyed Falling for the Villain. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. You couldn’t help but cheer for them to come out on top, no matter how messed up it was. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but with all the hype about how it took a twist and was darker than they expected, I wanted it to be darker. That’s the only reason it’s a 4. I don’t know what that says about me, but that’s just what it is.

If you have any sort of triggers though, I would think twice before reading this story.

Release - Control Artist - Carrie Aarons

 




Dahlia Akana has no idea where she’s going in life.

All she’s ever wanted to do is travel, and her inner circle pressuring her to figure out her purpose only makes her wanderlust grow stronger. But she’s comfortable being a nanny to her nieces in the small Pennsylvania town where her sister lives. Though she’s far overstayed her desired timeline, it’s a place filled with friends and familiarity while she plots her next move.

Until she meets the devastatingly gorgeous, obnoxious rookie who is slated to be the next superstar on the town’s top tier baseball team. He’s everything she doesn’t want, but can’t seem to stay away from. As they spend more time together, she discovers that he might just be the anchor she’s always looked for.

When secrets, lies, and a humiliating public scandal rock their world, will she be able to stay with him? Fight for him? Or will her age-old tactic of fleeing erase any shot at a happily ever after?

Garrett Chester has always known exactly what he wants.

To be the best pitcher in the history of the major leagues. And luckily, with more talent in his pinky than other people have in their entire body, he’s well on his way. It’s his attitude that leaves something to be desired. Cocky, reckless and soaking up his newfound fame, the rookie attracts the attention of the tabloid press.

When he meets the feisty woman just as beautiful as the flower she’s named after, she gives him a refreshing reality check. With each passing day, not only does he fall harder, but she makes him want to be a better man.

Except the past that haunts him inevitably catches up, and ends up taking her down with him. Alone, exposed and cast out, it’s a reminder of the childhood trauma that has always plagued him. Can he put the rumors to rest, piece together a career in shambles, and be the hero she needs?

 



Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter, son and Great Dane/Lab rescue.

Release + Review - The Wicked Aftermath - Melissa Foster

 



When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain…

Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive.

Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won’t have to face it alone.

THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after. Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.


Johnaka's Review
“emotional read, 4 stars”

I hated The Wicked Aftermath in the best kind of way. This book broke me. I cried. The Wicked Aftermath is probably the most emotional read I have ever read from Foster. She broke our heroine, Leah, and then put her back together. Tank was the best kind of hero. He was patient and steady.

The only thing I will say is if you're in public, do not read. If you don’t want to cry, don’t read. This is coming from a woman who never cries while she reads.
