❤🔥❤🔥Review By TashaM ❤🔥❤🔥

Please don’t read this review if you haven’t read the other books before this….


Firstly I have binged read this whole series and utterly loved it. Meeting the Gallo family was an outstanding adventure.  They are the most together family I have read about in a long time. Each one of the Different yet their bond and love can withstand even the worst of storms.


This book is ten years later. It’s more Izzy and James book but it has some angsty heated twists that involves others…. A major scare that even had me praying. 


I don’t wanna say to much cos really all Marked Men lovers will just Devour this story. You will love seeing how the older couples are doing. How thier lives are moving forward and how still incredible they all are. 


Even with age they still hot as hell and will die for each other. They still loved the better halves with the same firecness.


I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to see what we get next… 

🌼🌼 Enjoy 🌼🌼

Cat Teaser Never Loose-1

🔥🔥🔥Synopsis🔥🔥🔥
Beau LaForte felt an internal pull to the beautiful, innocent Alexa Davidson. Oh, this was not the typical boy-meets-girl story. This was anything but typical. You see, Beau was a shifter – a panther – and the alpha of the pack. What his panther wanted, his panther got. And together, they wanted Alexa.
But when Alexa finds the pretty kitty lolling on her bed, she is determined to get him out — before he sheds more on her brand new sheets! Can Beau convince Alexa that she is his mate for life?

Cat Teaser No Other-2

⚡⚡⚡Excerpt⚡⚡⚡
Taking a deep breath, Alexa drew herself up to her full height and steeled herself for a battle. Although, since she stood just an inch over five feet, she knew her intimidation factor was virtually non-existent, but she had to start somewhere. It was time for her to quit stewing over decisions she could no longer change and instead concentrate on the concrete facts regarding her current situation.
And the fact was there was a flipping cat in her bed! A gigantic feline fiend apparently intent on wrecking what was left of her birthday. Because, yes, there was a cat in her bed, and it was stinkin’ immense. Since when did ordinary cats – even if they were frickin’ panthers – get that big?
The simple answer was they didn’t. EVER.
And an even better question was – Why wasn’t she scared of it?
God knew, it had fangs that promised grim death to anyone that provoked it. Oddly enough, though, she felt not a single ounce of fear or distress standing in front of it. It was like she instinctively knew this animal would never cause her a single second of harm. In fact, the longer she looked into its eyes that glowed in the darkened room, the more convinced she was that the purring beast would do whatever was necessary to protect her. It was like she and the animal had some kind of weird, unspoken connection. It was a bond that she didn’t want and had never asked to share, but one that she couldn’t deny and wouldn’t change even if she could.
How fucked up was that? Maybe this was some kind of voodoo curse one of her disgruntled customers had wished on her when she hadn’t served their coffee quickly enough. Personally, she thought that might be a bit of overkill, but caffeine addicts were serious in Louisiana, and one did not play around when it came to providing quality coffee in the bayou.
“Why couldn’t you be a dog? I could have handled this if you were a dog,” she muttered as she rolled her eyes toward the ceiling and hugged herself. “Especially since I’ve always been a puppy person,” she continued to babble as she shut her eyes and continued chafing her hands up and down her arms as a bizarre electrical charge seemed to ripple through the air inside the tiny bedroom.
“Well, I think it’s safe to say that you are now very much a cat person. Or, at least this cat’s person,” a deep, sexy voice rumbled from the bed. “More specifically, you’re this panther’s person.”
Alexa’s eyes popped open as that rich, deep voice seemed to vibrate through her being. Screaming as she spotted an extremely real — and from what she could tell (even in the darkness) was an oh, so very naked man in her bed — she quickly lunged for the nearest makeshift weapon she could find. Sadly for her, the closest missile she could find was only her television remote, and that merely bounced off her interloper’s sculpted chest.
“Ouch!” her prowler growled, batting away the remote as she continued to screech, blindly searching for another weapon in the mostly dark bedroom. “Alexa, chère, settle down!”
Wait a second? Why did her trespasser know her name? And why did that southern drawl sound so familiar? Making a half-turn on her not-so-steady feet, Alexa fumbled for the light switch on the wall, relieved when her searching fingers found what they were looking for. Flicking the switch, she squinted as her unfocused eyes tried to adjust when the room was suddenly flooded with bright, artificial light. Finally able to see a few seconds later, she couldn’t help emitting a small squawk as she saw the nude man lounging in the center of her bed.

EXCERPT
“Here, you need to stay hydrated,” I instructed gently as I held out the beverage. She took it with a roll of her eyes but tipped it to her lips. With her head back, the long column of her throat was exposed and it was sexy as hell. My girl was more fucking gorgeous every day. When she’d drunk the last of her water, I sat down on the plush, emerald green couch and lifted her into my lap.
“Baby—” I started.
“I haven’t even had a second to process this, Quinn,” she interrupted. She buried her face in her hands and groaned. “How the fuck did this even happen?”
“Well, when a man and a woman—” I broke off with a laugh when Jenna smacked my bicep.
“That’s not what I mean and you know it, smartass. We’ve been careful. . .haven’t we?”
Clearly, Jenna hadn’t realized how many times we’d fucked without a condom since I’d been home. If she had asked me to put one on, I would have. I would give her anything. But she’d been too caught up in our passion to notice, and I had no problem taking full responsibility for that.
I’d been determined to knock her up as soon as the ink was dry on our marriage license anyway. The only thing that would’ve made me happier than knowing she was carrying our child would’ve been to have a wedding band on her finger. I lifted her hand to my mouth and kissed the solitary engagement ring.
“I hate knowing the mother of my child isn’t bound to me completely. I’m ecstatic to be a husband and dad.” I couldn’t help grinning like a lunatic.
Jenna laughed when she clocked my expression. “You’re too damn adorable, Quinn. How am I supposed to resist you?”
My grin widened even further. “You’re not.” My mouth crashed down over hers, and I kissed her deeply until we were both panting with need. “Why even try?”

As leader of an elite mercenary team, Angel Johnston’s life is a constant battle. Not only is she fighting for the innocent people she is hired to rescue, but she is also in the middle of a war against a madman who would do anything to destroy her and the people she loves.
Chase Montgomery is Alpha to the White River Wolves, father of two precious little girls, and Angel’s mate. Or he would be, if she would ever allow him to claim her. He understands her need to know her children are safe from the General first, but the past year without her has been hell, and he’s tired of waiting.
When the General makes his move, and Angel’s world comes crashing down around her, will she be able to put the pieces of her heart back together in time to save the ones who mean the most to her? Can Chase find the strength and will to fight for his future, and that of his family? Or will it be too late?

Wow Just wow. Finally we got the Magnificent HEA for Angel and Chase. This book was packed with everything I love about Dawn’s Shifter books. They pack and Amazing Punch.

❤❤❤❤ BLURB ❤❤❤❤

It’s just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said.

It won’t interrupt your life during or after filming, they said.

It is a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said.

Well, they—the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties—lied.

Now I’m stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them.

Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m now being called Dr. Obscene.   

 What I’d hoped to earn in respect, I’ve instead received in patients flashing me seductive smiles and flirtatious winks during their exams.

How’s a guy supposed to convince the most perfect woman he’s ever met that he’s not as much of an idiot in real life as he appears to be on camera?

With all of the show’s shenanigans following me around like a parasite, it’s going to take a lot to persuade Melody Marco to be anything more than my new nurse, but I can’t get her out of my head.

I want her.

 Good thing I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge…

   Get ready, Melody.

 The Doctor is in.

💣💥💣 Review By TashaM 💣💥💣

Max Monroe have fucking did it again. They went above all expectations. This book was Phenomenal. I loved and Thoroughly enjoyed every second of this amazing story.

Dr William Cummings is Goergia’s Brother. Will is a doctor that has made a wrong decision and that decision bites him the arse. But for us right through the book this blunder and other aspects will have you in a fit of laughter.

Melody who really you can’t help but feel crap for her but all that changes when she meets our Doc. Melody is such an amazing strong Heroine​. I love how she wasn’t Childish and didn’t play that damn Cat and mouse game with Will. She was always open and upfront…. They both were so mature handling every aspect of their lives.

When these two wasn’t in a serious conversation or weren’t having Hot panty melting sex, their banter and Dialogue was of the charts Hilarious. The situations they find themselves in will have you Laughing like a loon, spitting out your coffee or choking on it from laughter. Their chemistry is So Hot but their Banter their Banter was My Highlight.

Watching how they interacted with others and each other had me want to PMSL. Having the characters from the Billionaire books here with their parents was so amazing. Gosh I loved every minute of it.

Grab this book ladies it’s magnificent and 100% Max Monroe best work yet…

Enjoy!!!!

 

 

#DamnableGrace #TillieCole #5Stars #DarkandTwisted

IMG_2644damanable grace release day

“I was his ultimate obsession.”

This was amazing. With each book in this series getting better and better Tillie has fed me yet another dark book for my twisted collection. When I say twisted I really mean TWISTED in all capital letters. But somehow Tillie still finds a way to add so much beauty to her dark story. 

“Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection.  AK had called me “Red”.  The color of my hair.  I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips. I was not sure why, but I enjoyed that name for me. Not Phebe.  Not “whore” … but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.”

“Someone searching for grace.” Phebe laughed a laugh that held not one bit of humor. “Strangers to our kind of pain, people who have yet to be thrown onto the same rocky road, will not recognize you as a fellow traveler desperately seeking what lies at the end of the path.” She took a deep breath. “Forgiveness. But those of us who have already been walking the road for miles will see you. We will see you within you a kindred spirit” She didn’t push me. She didn’t ask what I might be hiding. No, she just ripped open my fucking chest, bared my soul, then left it out on display for her ocean-blue eyes to see.”

This book is not for the person who only reads light and fluffy. This is for the reader who loves taboo subjects, non consensual sex, drugs, murders, sharing of partners, and so much more. Even with these subjects this story is pure beauty. It captured my heart and refuses to let it go. If you have not read books 1-4 seriously what are you waiting for? This series doesn’t just stay with you. 

IT OWNS YOU. 

IMG_2644

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

#SuspensefulRomance Bullet To The Heart (No Mercy Series #1) by Lea Griffith

Action-packed and suspenseful!

I loved this book! The story was so well written. I went in expecting a bit of suspense and got fast-paced and thrilling tale that made my adrenaline spike!

“She was a broken person. Strong on the outside, but a million pieces inside.”

Bullet is an assassin, raised by and trained to kill for The Collective. They tried to tortured her humanity out of her. Rand has to realize that as alpha as he is and as much as he craves being protective, Bullet is an awesome kick*ss heroine!

“This woman, with her killer instincts and blood on her hands, had wrapped her bruised heart around his, and now they were entwined.”

Bullet to the heart is action-packed and suspenseful. Woven into the excitement was a beautiful story of two hearts & souls that recognized their match and would do anything and everything to find a way to each other.

“Your pain breaks my heart, and that’s frightening. I didn’t think I had one anymore,” he said against her lips.”

It had my heart racing from the opening scene till the last page flip! This was my first book by Lea Griffith but I can’t wait to read more! I definitely need to start right into the next book in this series.    – Diane –

 

She was born to love then taught to kill. She has become everything but is no one.

Known only as Bullet she was long ago forced to shed the name her parents gave her. Changed, molded and trained to kill with sharp-shooting efficiency she is one of The Collective’s most valuable assets. In a cadre of killers, Bullet is death waiting but her time for vengeance has come.

He was loved and then he lost. He has become a hunter in search of revenge.

Everything was taken from Rand the day a bullet ended the lives of his beloved wife and daughter. He has searched for their killer seven long years and may have her in his hands. Rand has suffered but now the time has come to make The Collective pay or die trying.

Joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin. Vengeance draws them together but before all is said and done they will learn love can either break you or make you stronger.

 

 

#NewRelease Just Like That by Nicola Rendell #RomCom #GuppyTheDog

 

IMG_1207

Our Review:
I dove into Just Like That hoping for a fun and cute romance and I got that plus so much more!!

“It started with an accidental theft, moved to an accidental poisoning, and ended with him sleeping on my porch. And yet, it was absolutely perfect from strange start to even stranger finish. I had a Cosmo-debunking orgasm, and I haven’t laughed so hard on a date…ever. “Hashtag sorry-not-sorry.”

Penny Darling is a bit of a tangled mess when she bumps into Russ at baggage claim. A luggage mix up later and Russ finds himself knocking on her door tangled up in his own lies and secrets.

“You know, you look familiar. Have you posed for any Regency romance covers? I swear to God, I’ve seen you bare chested in a kilt. Seducing the Rake maybe?”
Before I can answer—it was one time, for fuck’s sake. I know guys who had STDs that didn’t haunt them like Seducing the Rake has stayed with me—”

I laughed out loud, swooned over Russ, fell in love with quirky Maisie all while Guppy the dog stole the show!

“When the dog walks into the room, the only thing I can think is, Holy sh*t, that’s a polar bear. She gives him a couple big pats on the back. The way people do with, you know, horses. “This is Guppy.”

The romance is off the charts Hot, Hot, Hot! Russ and Penny have Chemistry with a capital C!! The entire city of Flamingo, Florida is populated with peculiar and unconventional characters including a very dastardly Dick Dickerson! I was kept entertained from start to finish! This was only my second book by this author, but I think I’ve become quite a fan!

SYNOPSIS

“I bet I can untangle you.”

At an airport baggage claim, Penny Darling looks up from her knotted mess of ear buds to find the sexiest hunk of man she’s ever seen. He’s got a military haircut, a scar through his eyebrow, and he’s rocking a pastel pink dress shirt like only a real man can. But Penny is on a man-free diet so she leaves the airport without succumbing to his delicious double-entendres…or his dreamy dimples.

PI Russ Macklin can’t take his eyes off Penny. As she sashays out of the airport with hips swaying and curls bouncing, he suspects they may share more than just sweltering chemistry. That suitcase she’s rolling along behind her? It looks a lot like his.

Because it is.

When he tracks her down, he holds her bag hostage in exchange for a date. Their night begins with margaritas and ends in urgent care, and Russ proves that Cosmo’s theory about a very particular type of orgasm was oh-so-wrong.

In Penny, Russ finds a small-town sweetheart with a very naughty side. For the first time ever, he’s thinking about picket fences. Penny finds in Russ a loving, caring man who understands the power of massaging showerheads.

But Russ is only in Port Flamingo for a week. They agree it’ll be a fling and nothing more. Because really, they can’t fall ass-over-teakettle in love just like that…

Can they?

EXCERPT

Russ

In my shopping cart, I’ve got assorted gifts: a box of wine, like I saw in her fridge; every kind of salt-and-vinegar potato chips they sell; a box of Dots; some Kama Sutra warming massage oil because I couldn’t fucking resist.
And that just leaves one more thing.
I put my basket down by a display of cupcakes and clear my throat. “I need to get something written on a cake.”
The baker turns around. She pulls her hairnet off her head and says, “I’m leaving for the night, sir. I can take your order, but it’ll have to be for tomorrow.”
This part can’t wait. Penny needs to know I’m not sleeping on this. She needs to know I listened to every single thing she said—every last detail, every last word.
I lean forward, putting my hands on the curved glass case. I glance at the baker’s nametag and then look her in the tired, baggy eyes. “Jacquie. It’s urgent. I fucked up, and I need to apologize.”
“The bait shop has some nice carnations. Usually.”
“Already tried that. Didn’t take.”
She gives me a stern stare, like if the blue carnations didn’t do it, I must really be in the shit.
“Jacquie. Please.”
She inhales long and hard, pursing her lips tight. “I’ve got my bowling group in twenty minutes.” She points backward toward the freezers, and I see a turquoise bowling shirt hanging on the back of a door. “I’m sorry, sir. I don’t have time.” She starts undoing her apron, which is a smudgy, colorful explosion of frostings. “Like I said, come back tomorrow. I’ll be glad to do whatever you’d like then.”
I pull out my wallet and open the billfold. “I’ll pay your overtime. I’ll pay your lane fees. I’ll buy you a new goddamned pair of bowling shoes. Whatever you want.” I put a fifty on the counter, next to the crumbly remains of some free cookies. “I just need a cake, tonight, with a message written on it.”
She looks at the money and then back at me.
“Jacquie. We’re talking about…” What the hell are we talking about? Chemistry? Sparks? That feeling in my gut that I’ve never felt before? Happiness? No, it’s more than that, and there’s only one word for it. “Love, Jacquie. We’re talking about love.”
Holy fuck. As soon as I say it, I know it’s true. Just a few days with Penny and I’m saying the word I’ve never said before—the one I never thought I’d ever say at all.
She lowers her nose, crumpling her chin into her throat. “Love?”
“Love. Like love-at-first-sight, different-planet, just-like-that love.”
She sighs hard, considering the cash. And then finally she untangles her hairnet from her palm, slipping it over her crunchy curls. “Five minutes. Pick out your cake. I’ve only got time for writing, though. No extra flowers. No balloons. No decoration. No sprinkles. We’re clear?”
“Jacquie, you’re a life saver,” I say, and pull a small round cake, decorated with pink roses, from the display shelf below. I slide it across the bakery case as she reties her apron. Then she takes a pad of paper and hands me a pen.
“Print what you want. Nice and clear. No cursive. I’m not letting one of my cakes become a hashtag bakery fail, all right?” She puts on a pair of plastic food service gloves and pops the lid off the cake. She sets it on a pedestal to the left of the register.
I pick up the pen and look at the blank pad, thinking about what I want to say and how.
It isn’t Shakespeare. It’s the truth. Six words does the job. When I’m finished, I put the pad on the other side of the case. “There.”
Her gloves crinkle as she reads it, and then she recoils a little. She gives me a shame on you shake of her head. “Sir, this is a family establishment. I can’t write that on a cake.”
I pull another fifty out of my wallet. “How about now?”

#NewRelease Tortured by Nicole Williams #AllTheFeels #SecondChance #MustRead

Our Review:

Tortured lived up to its name! I felt tortured with heartache right from the start of the book. On the surface it began as a sweet story of first love being tested by time and distance. Brecken goes off to war leaving Camryn worrying about his safety, while he worries about leaving her with no one to protect her from an alcoholic and abusive parent.

“Worry as I unloaded the groceries. Relief as I started the laundry. Anxiety as I ironed shirts. Excitement as I checked the mail. Hopefulness as I started dinner. Hopelessness as I set the table. Emotions were a strange thing. How they could propel you forward one moment, only to bury you in an unmarked grave the next.”

When the worst happens, Camryn is forced to find her own way to get by and continue on with what she has left of her life. To me, she proves her strength in every move and choice she makes and she is faced with lots of very difficult choices at such a young age.

“Our scars prove we’re strong. They testify to what we can endure. It’s not weakness carved into them—it’s strength.”

Both Brecken and Camryn are kept prisoner in a way and to deal with this they keep their own secrets. It’s only when they are able to shine light on their own chains and scar that they can move towards any freedom.

“I’m a man. Staring at a woman I’ve loved, trying not to break down in front of her broken body.” His voice broke, matching the look on his face. “Trying to be strong when I’ve never in my life felt weaker. Trying to look like I can handle seeing her like this when I can’t f*ing handle seeing her like this.”

I absolutely loved this beautiful and beautifully written heartbreaking and honest story. There are definitely some tough to read parts but handled so honestly. I fall more and more in love with this author with every book of hers that I pick up. I look forward to discovering more of her books and handing my heart over to her to destroy (and hopefully heal again). I’ve just added this author to my ‘must-buy’, ‘one-click’, ‘don’t-even-read-the-blurb’ list!

“You know where you’re going?”
His head nodded beside mine. “I’ve always known.”
My hands went behind his neck. His skin was warm and familiar. “And where’s that?” He exhaled against my skin as he closed the bedroom door. “Toward you.”

SYNOPSIS:

When he left for a twelve-month deployment, she knew it would feel like forever before they saw each other again. She didn’t realize how right she was.

When Lance Corporal Brecken Connolly gets taken as a POW, Camryn hopes for the best but steels herself for the worst. In the end, steel was what she needed to survive when he didn’t. She moves on the only way she knows how—gilding herself in more steel.

Years go by.
She builds a new life.
She leaves the old one behind.

Until one day, she sees the face of a ghost on the news. Brecken seems to have risen from the dead, but she knows she can’t perform the same miracle for herself. While Brecken was held in a torture camp for the past five years, she’s been trapped in her own kind of prison. One she can’t be saved from.

The man she mourned comes back to join the living, but the girl he wanted to spend his life with isn’t the same woman he comes back for. Brecken isn’t the same person either. The past five years have changed them both. While he’s determined to put the pieces back together, she’s resolved to let hers rot where they shattered.

Broken or not, Brecken wants her back. He’ll do anything to achieve that. Even if it means going against the warden of Camryn’s personal prison—her husband.
