4STARS The Hard Way! This book was NOTHING I expected it to be and I still LOVED IT!!
It’s a Hard Knock Life …
Marcos Rivera lives life in the fast lane making cash the fast way. He tried to go pro in fighting like his cousin Chuito did, unfortunately his criminal record stopped that from happening. He quickly found himself wanting to do what came easy. Stealing. The need to make ends meet consumes his mind..as an active gang member in the heart of Miami. All the while knowing his future will abruptly end in one of two places… In a coffin buried six feet under or in prison becoming a caged man for life.
Thug life cares not who you are and has a recurring pattern of taking people out of the game no matter the race, age or creed.
He’s tried to do things the right way. He got a job and worked for hourly wages earned legally. Only it’s not easy to do when the cops are breathing down your employers back looking for crimes not taking place in their work establishment. Due to the cops zeroing in on him Marcos finds himself let go from the blue collar jobs once the employer’s has had enough of being harassed by the Miami PD.
So life the hard way it is, because in his mind it was the only way.
“You know all those things going around in your mind. The stuff you know gangs do, but you’re telling yourself I’m different. That I’ve never done them.” Katie shook her head in disbelief. “I don’t care if you’ve stolen a few cars” “We’re not talking about cars.”
Katie Foster is the EXACT opposite of Marcos. She’s a straight laced history teacher living in Garnet, a small town where everyone knows each other. Garnet is the polar opposite from the fast streets of Miami; kind of like the two main characters themselves…Katie and Marc. Hmmm…is there a hint of symbolism in there Ms.Moon? *Grins*
While visiting his cousin Chuito, in Garnet, Marc and Katie cross paths in a way neither saw coming. That meeting sticks to both of them. You see, all it took was a chance meeting where two people connect for an impression to take root.
Gone is the ‘sweet go by the book and obey what you say Katie.’ Now she’s the ‘don’t tell me what to do or where to go because I run my own life Katie.’ She’s bolder and she likes it. All thanks to that one night where two totally different worlds collide.
I beez in the trap Katie attempts to reach out to Marc after that night. What should be easy instead becomes difficult. She finds herself being hit with opposition. And Marc…well he finds himself in the trap. (NOTE: The trap is street vernacular for someone who hustles to get fast cash)
The Characters My heart ached for Marco. He just cannot seem to catch a break. Trying to steer clear of gang life becomes nearly impossible as much as he may try. His past finds a way to bite him in the a**. He quickly gets sucked back in. What I loved was his feelings toward Katie. He really likes her and he openly admires her strength and beauty. He’s also honest with himself knowing that with his lifestyle a future with her is inconceivable.
Katie in turn is pretty much down for whatever as long as it includes Marcos being part of her life. She wants ALL of him…The good, the bad and the ugly.
My Thoughts I loved it!! Kele Moon pulled me in and held me from beginning to end. I was actually expecting something different but found myself very happy with what I got. Two true to life characters facing everyday adversities pertaining to their lifestyle and what each has lived through. That’s all I can say without spoiling anything.
The Chemistry is explosive between Marcos and Katie. Kele Moon writes some pretty steamy scenes with these two. The writing overall flows well and will definitely have you wanting to know the secondary characters just a bit more.
My Ratings Characters- Sweet, Sexy and Intriguing. I want MORE Chuito Writing Style- Strong and Genuine like it’s characters Plot/Storyline- Good girl changes after meeting a bad boy with a troubled heart who comes off as if the whole world against him. The good girl grows a back bone and then decides she wants her bad boy. Steam Factor- High/Steamy On a scale of 1-10 I say 7.5 Entertainment Level- From Lo-Med-Hi I say Medium Overall- I loved it! My recommendation is READ THE BOOK! Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads! For more reviews got to:www.realitybites-letsgetlost.blogspot...

“I told them to have their guns at the ready.” “Bravo. I’ll see you soon, brother.” “You better, Ricardo, because if you die, I will come down to Hell and kill you again.” Ricardo barked out a laugh. “I’ll be seeing you either way, then, and good luck with keeping our madre from killing Valentino.” Salvatore laughed , his voice going serious a second later. “I love you, brother. Live for me.”
Not just a romance. Brotherhood, family and vengeance are strongly interlaced in to Ricardo as readers get to meet eleven, that’s right ELEVEN BAD A** ALPHA MALES! And some FIERCE FEMALE counterparts!
Ricardo starts off with one brother, Valentino, seeking protection for his two daughters knowing their lives are in danger from a mafia war he did not start yet feels will be the death of him and his daughters. Valentino already lost his wife to this war he now asks this one thing of his older brother Ricardo… Protection. The mafia war now being the catalyst which jump starts everything in the story once the Santini brothers enter it.
I Declare War The Landi family is on a murderous rampage. The Don, Pedro Landi vowing to slaughter men, women and children after two of his daughters are murdered. Although, the Santini’s were not his main target they soon become it after protection is granted to Valentino’s two girls. The Santini family is the largest on the Island where all the players reside; Ricardo’s mother having birthed ten children to her husband, a man now bed ridden from an unknown illness. When the sh*t hits the fan Ricardo decides it’s time for him to take the helm and be the Don. His family agrees…well everyone except for his mother.
‘Seeing the Donatelli coming, Bianca had panicked and ran, only looking back at the sound of yelling…’
On The Run Bianca D’Angelo is the first love of Ricardo Santini. She is also the one he let walk away due to the fact she could not handle who he really was. A killer. Now they find their paths colliding. With her life in danger as well as the lives of his entire family, Ricardo decides that total annihilation is the only way to go.
While the mafia war progresses family secrets come to light, infiltrators surface, hearts are broken and death comes.
My thoughts In true Marita A. Hansen fashion the story is told from multiple pov’s which I LOVED! This may not work for everyone. There are a TON of characters with multiple plot lines, if this a writing style you are NOT use to it can get confusing. Me? I’m use to it.
As previously stated Hansen gives us eleven HOT ALPHA MALES to choose from. I mean what more can a girl ask for right! The brothers are delicious and I am eager to get and know each and every one of them. I won’t lie a couple characters reminded me of a few in another book I’ve read that shall not be named. Never the less they were NOT replica’s they just gave off a feel that I like but it also felt a tad familiar. If that makes sense to any one beside me… *raises both eyebrows*
The Writing: The writing was good. The book starts and ends in high suspense. I was continually kept on my toes for what came next and even when I predicted something would happen and it did I was wrong about the how…I was only right about the who.. Sorry I know that may seem confusing but I don’t want to spoil a plot line.
All in all I enjoyed the book and found myself being entertained with each new chapter. I think the various pov’s made it that much more entertaining and gave us a lot more sub plots that can continue in to a book two, three and so on.
The Characters: The Viper Girls? LOVE!! They are bad a** assassin’s team with an agenda. The Santini brothers? I want! I want! I want! Each offers something different but Brando LOVES HIM! He’s dark, moody and broodingly dangerous, lord help me that man has got me by the panties. Salvatore and Alessandro are a close second and third. I WANT MORE!
Why readers will love Ricardo- Strong ALPHA male, cold hearted but not necessarily by choice, you will have to read the book to understand why. He also does not mince words; he speaks what he knows to be true even if it will make him look bad in the process. We all have a soft spot for an A-hole..Or is that just me? *Wink, wink*
Why readers will love Bianca- She’s straight forward, strong willed and takes no bs from anyone. Not even a mafia Don. I prefer my heroines strong and she was that.
My Rating and Why Why 3.5 STARS? I’ll tell you. The story is very fast paced and at times I felt like it could have slowed allowing certain plot lines to be a bit meatier. Now even though Ricardo and Bianca are the main couple it honestly did not feel that way. The book had so much going that the fast pace became a double edge sword. The only way to work that out in my opinion is if the book would have been longer say an extra twenty five to thirty pages. We do get romance but not as much as I would have liked. In other words this did not feel like it was their story. Things could have been expanded on with them; such as more history info between them, maybe a flashback to know how they met… I don’t know, I just felt like some things were missing within their story. I found myself wanting more between the two.
My Ratings Characters- Sexy, Dangerous, Broken plus a lot more.. Writing Style- Good. The story is told in multiple pov’s and has various plotlines Plot/Storyline- Lovers reunited in the midst of a war. Mafia jumps off and the Santini clan enters after vowing protection to two girls. Steam Factor- High/Very Steamy On a scale of 1-10 I say 8.5 Entertainment Level- Lo-Med-Hi I say High, I was thoroughly entertained Overall- I very much enjoyed it! Now go forth and read.

Kane Archer is a man on a mission.
In Unbeautifully Loved Kane’s character is a bit of a mystery to readers. I have to give kudos to Emma Grayson because she leaves you wanting more of him that’s for sure. So when the chance to read his story popped up in my inbox I jumped on it!
“I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about Kane…almost like he’s hiding something. Something he doesn’t want people to know.” -Lexie
Kane Archer has carried the heavy burden of his fiancée Aimee’s death for two and a half years and he is not the only one. It seems the whole town blames him as the dirty looks and whispers of “murderer” follow him everywhere he goes in Camden. What others think mean nothing to Kane. He is determined to find the man responsible for taking Aimee’s life, as far as he is concerned everyone else can kiss his a**.
Whitney Jareau moved to the small town of Camden to find herself after an unfortunate tragedy strikes her family. Two years past and her family is now looking for her return. She on the other hand does not plan to go back. Still, they want her and make it very clear that she will come back whether she wants to or not. However her presence is not all that is required by them…
‘He was a quarter mystery, half strong and masculine and the rest sexy.’ -Whitney
Whitney is not the first woman Kane has been attracted to since Aimee’s death but she is the first woman to feed more than just his sexual appetite. He knows there is more to her than what meets the eye. That more is something he wants, admittedly or not.
’My mind was made up and there was no changing it. Just as there was no changing the fact that the love of my life was dead, and I would carry the guilt of her death for as long as I lived.’ -Kane
His heart is buried in guilt. Aimee’s death affects Kane in a big way, it’s sad to watch it play out on the pages and is just as devastating to read. In a flashback we find out what happened on that horrid day as you relive it with Kane. All of his memories are not bad though, readers get flashbacks of some sweet moments he had with Aimee too which is a plus. On the flip side what I loved was how Emma Grayson did not allow Aimee to haunt Whitney nor weigh her down in any way. Instead Whit embraced his past love and in a way she helped him move forward.
Kane and Whit organically come together which makes the story that much more lovable. She meets him while she is working at Beans, a local coffee shop. A place he visits every day. They’re both attracted to one another and he finds it adorable how she gets all nervous around him. She takes notice to how the town’s people react to Kane’s presence and recognizes that it is the opposite of her own reaction. Whit has heard the whispers only she doesn’t know the facts so she re-frames from drawing conclusions. Once these two finally get together it’s obvious that there is more to them then either is willing to confess.
The heat level by the way is FIRE! For those wondering **wink,wink**
‘From that first day in Beans, I had wanted to know what she tasted like, what she felt like molded to my body, if her tongue tangling with mine did anything to me, and what her hands smoothing over my skin felt like. And it felt just as I thought it would. Like sweet, beautiful heaven.’ -Kane
Overall, I enjoyed Unbearable Guilt more than book one. I look forward to Kessel’s book and I am very curious to know more about Basil. Her name alone intrigues me.
Book 1 is Unbeautifully Loved:
Unbearable Guilt is for Fans of: Mia Sheridan, Ryan Michele and/or Harper Sloan.
My Ratings Characters- Sexy, Lovable and Haunted Writing Style- Good with great character chemistry Plot/Storyline- Man haunted by the death of his ex finds some solace in a new love. If only he could admit that. Meanwhile their worlds collide in a BIG way. Steam Factor- HIGH/Very Steamy on a scale of 1-10 I say 8 Entertainment Level- Good, the story is engaging as well as its characters. You get a good dose of humor, sexy time and suspense. Overall- I enjoyed it!! My Recommendation : Read it! Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads! For more reviews got to:www.realitybites-letsgetlost.blogspot...

The Mistaken definitely caught me off guard. Though it is not my usual choice in reading material the detour it provided was very much appreciated. The twist and turns right up to the very end had my mind spinning.
Nick and Tyler Karras are brothers yet they’re complete opposites. Were Tyler is the settled down good one, Nick is the one who parties who is always getting in to trouble or maybe trouble just finds him. Either way Tyler constantly has to bail Nick out of a jam and recently this trouble seems to be mafia connected.
In between cleaning up mess after mess his brother makes Tyler and his girlfriend Jillian get married. Now expecting their first child together life may not be perfect but the expectation of their newborn’s arrival has overshadowed all the bad. And thank goodness for that because things were really really bad at one point.
However things can change quickly in life and when Jillian is faced with an injustice and the cops do nothing... Everything starts to take a downward spiral as Jillian seeks to face Erin; the woman who should rightfully be behind bars for a crime committed against her.
All so suddenly tragedy strikes leaving Tyler a widower and desperate; in a place no man wants to be.
An angry alcoholic, with nothing left to lose.
‘There was no hope in my heart, no reason to stop my downward spiral and straighten out my life. The very realization only made me want to drink more. And I did, for the rest of the day and most of the night.’
Tyler’s younger brother Nick knows exactly what it feels like to be in his shoes and he feeds the demons that have a pidgin hold on Tyler. You see, Nick crossed over to the dark side a few years back after a life altering tragedy changed him. Pain filled drunken confessions bring to life an evil plan to hurt Erin. And Nick adds fuel to the flames when he uses his connections with the Russian mafia help him and Tyler do the unthinkable.
The plan is to kidnap Erin and sell her into the world of sex trafficking.
And that is when everything goes super duper wrong. THEY KIDNAP THE WRONG GIRL and it’s too late to turn back now because the deal was made, they must deliver the girl. OR ELSE.
Hannah…Poor Hannah my heart hurt for this woman. I can’t explain why but Hannah is The Mistaken.
Was Hannah at the wrong place at the wrong time? I think not. But what I think does not matter because once she is spotted she officially becomes the target.
Tyler can’t do it. He cannot turn Hannah over to be a sex slave and he vows to protect her. But how good is the word of a drunk, with nothing left to lose?
Running from the mafia brings Tyler and Hannah closer. But how does she know if she can really trust him. Can he correct his mistake and hand over the right girl in enough time? Heck, is that even an option now?
Slowly Hannah begins to fall for her captor, Tyler, who has wounds that are still raw from the death of his wife.
My Thoughts Seriously people READ THIS BOOK! It’s different and as you read and see all the pieces fall in to place as the innocent lives of Tyler and Hannah are woven together. You will be left speechless. The tension between these two brothers is crazy; you can definitely feel the jealousy that one harbors for the other. They love one another yet hate each others actions, this caused for some really tense moments throughout the book.
This Mistaken was high octane. There are moments when it moved fast and then moments when it slowed but the slowdowns only came in the first 30% after that the book takes off. So many lives are affected and so many emotions play out. Readers will get a little bit of everything -Romance Danger -Suspense -Lies -Jealousy -Unfinished business -Kidnapping -Love -Tragedy

4/4/13 Got my ARC!!! Starting this one tonight, once my 4th of July festivities conclude!
The last 10% left me freaking SPEECHLESS. When is the last time a book slap the shit out of you? That is EXACTLY what this book did to me. I love it when an author is not scared to take risks with their characters. Angela Richardson what did you do to me? I don’t think I underestimated her as an author but she certainly surpassed my expectations with the second book in her Pieces of Lies series.
‘What I seek now is the truth. I know that the truth doesn’t always lead to love and that love doesn’t always lead to the truth. I’d like to believe they walk hand in hand, but deep down, I know it simply isn’t true. I must get answers because the darkness in me will never leave, it only sleeps dormant until it’s woken again, and I know lies are its biggest alarm.’ -Norah
Norah is the mc for 98.999% of this book. We get small glimpses from another pov from someone special... *Grins* When I think of Norah I see this
Men swarm to her like bees to honey.
She has three men who want her. THREE. But her heart belongs to one. What is not to love about Norah, she is strong willed, smart, loving, beautiful and once she is committed you have her heart fully but DO NOT LIE. Because if you lie and get caught you WILL lose her.
At the end of Pieces of Lies Norah learns that her boyfriend, Clint, is keeping something from her, a secret that is not revealed to her or the readers. When Pieces of Truth starts Norah and Clint are still in love and living in New York City. The fact that Clint harbors a secret still weighs heavy in the back of her mind. Never the less it’s obvious the once philandering playboy has changed his ways and is committed to Norah but with secrets laying dormant doubt always seems to creep its way in.
Doubt leads her straight to her best friend Josh for help. Which is cool right? Wrong, there is just one small problem with that..
‘As I looked into his eyes, trying to see into the depths of that darkness, it hit me. It was subtle, but it hit me. The rush of attraction. A heat from inside me suddenly appeared from nowhere. Damn. That’s not good.’ –Norah
See. And it does not help that Josh returns the attraction tenfold. As Norah fights to put that aside she relies on Josh for help to find out once and for all what Clint has hidden from her. He agrees to help her and soon everything spirals out of control. A party themed as the game of TRUTH OR DARE brings out secrets. Leaving Norah to fight for control as her heart breaks and she scrambles to pick up the pieces.
Ultimate betrayals occur...
Enemies become Allies...
And New Enemies show their faces...
But you must read closely as all of these Jaw Dropping Shockers unfold in the story with a plethora of twist and turns. Because I have no doubt that you will want to re-read some lines after being left SPEECHLESS.
Fave Lines said and unsaid
‘I was enjoying this dangerous liaison, but I knew I couldn’t let it persist much further. I had to get home, and I much preferred to keep the memory of our meeting as something sweet rather than sour.’ –Norah
“Two households, both alike in dignity,” Samuel quoted. “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.” –Samuel
It’s just sexual tension. Hardcore, animalistic, lick his body all over, sexual tension. That’s all it is. –Norah
'His reaction was enough to show he was lying. Lies. More fucking lies. Arrgghh!' –Norah
My thoughts I LOVED IT! Norah....and paint...and sex O.M.G. NO WORDS. Readers FINALLY get to see Norah and Samuel first meeting play out and it was G O O D!!!! I loved the writing it was fast paced and failed to drag. I thought the author’s ability to leave me speechless was very well done. In fact she did such a good job I have no idea which guy I would like Norah to be with. Although she pics a guy at the end of this book I still feel like there may be some unfinished business with another guy. Regardless I loved her choice! I am anxious to get my hands on book 3 I need MORE Norah, MORE Clint, MORE Josh and MORE Samuel!! And I am curious to know if her final decision will stick. This series has easily become a favorite! I highly Recommend it!!!

“She’s so beautiful, like a fire on a winter night. I can also see her innocence, she’s young to our ways but you are not. Her fire will melt your ice into water and it will run red. Do not love her so openly, it’s in your eyes.” ~Sophie to Nico

Murder, Lust, Corruption and Betrayal
‘In a perfect world without greed or ambitions there exists no anarchy; this is not that world.' ~ Alfonzo
This book left my heart in tatters. I’m talking chest caving in, I can’t breath somebody get me an oxygen tank my pulse just dropped. S.W.Frank is officially an auto-buy author for me. Just when Alfonzo thinks he’s out he gets pulled RIGHT BACK IN.

So dangerous in fact that kids are dropping dead from it. While vacationing in Miami, Jessica, Alfonzo’s cousin is with her friends Beth and Vicky, when all three end up in the hospital and one girl is pronounced dead. Alfonzo with the help of one of his workers, Emilio gets Jessica to a safe location away from prying news reporters and police.
What Alfonzo does not know is that someone seeks to take him out. Someone wants his coveted #1 spot. Rumors of Ledgers resurface…ledgers that hold money, power and respect all rolled in to one.
“What is this good-faith?” “The traitor’s head within 72 hours.” “Or?” “Or, anarchy will not come from a drug. It will be a torturous and sobering reality.”
My Thoughts ACTION PACKED!!! LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! Alfonzo is THE MAN! I love him! We get great secondary characters/stories with Jessica and Emilio these two bring some youthful spice as well as the drama. “My brother Domingo’s actually the crazy one. He’ll shoot you and ask questions later.” Jess to Emilio
What will really catch readers off guard is the betrayal of two characters that Alfonzo trust with his life. I speculated… but when it happened I was CRUSHED.

‘He hadn’t anticipated the impenetrable hold this woman would have on his heart. It defied reason.Their lives and souls were entwined through a tragedy and irrevocably linked by the powerful force of love.’ -Inner monologue of Alfonzo
In book 1 we met Alfonzo a half Puerto Rican half Italian sexy as all hell street hustler. Tragedy strikes his family and he finds himself forever linked to one female Selange a black woman with brains to match her beauty. Book 2 opens with Alfonzo and his family living in Peurto Rico; he and Selange are married with a 2yr old son, Salvatore.
“Then tell me Alfonzo, just how deep are you in your father’s business?” His wife’s intelligence was indisputable. He told her the truth. “Submerged so deep babe I can touch the ocean floor.” There was a sharp intake of breath at this pronouncement followed by her desperately futile plea, “You have to get out, isn’t there some way?”
Alfonzo is stepping up as Capo of the Palazzo family and is officially the head of his Italian mafia family. And everyone is not happy with an outsider coming in to the fold… *cocks an eyebrow* An American outsider at that. Meanwhile the FBI is closing in and there is an undercover agent hovering in plain sight. When his freedom is seized he is arrested and held at MCF Manhattan Correctional Facility and denied bail. While Alfonzo worries for his wife and child’s safety he has no idea that he should be worrying for his own. For an assassin strikes to take his life in jail.
My Thoughts SECRETS. Secret identities, secret lives, secret ledgers. So many DAMN SECRETS. So many twist and turns. And I LOVED IT!!! S.W. Frank keeps me on my toes just when I think I got it all figured out Frank shuts it down and has my mind spinning. This book is sexy, suspenseful and layered! I highly recommend it! Must mention: The grammatical errors which will bother most, however I guess I am use to them because I read a lot of ARC’s.

“I’m a natural born killer. I was created by a killer, I became a killer, and I’m going to die a killer! If anybody in this fuckin’ world threatens mine, I will handle it. Death is death, I don’t give a fuck about your age, or how you get there. I dare anybody to test me. I have no problem ending a life if it saves mine.” ~Jay
Not sure why… but Jay raising up talking about how he will end anyone who dares to threaten him had my panties in a twist. And lust on the brain. I’m not saying its right but whatever, it is what it is. Plus this is only fiction, but damn if I didn’t want to scream
“…If I were you, I wouldn’t take my kindness for weakness.” ~Jay to Carmen
After Paying his debt to society with 17 years of lock down Jay Santiago has been putting in work. The Santiago Cartel is thriving just as hard as his legal businesses. A new venture has him seeking to get out of his illegal dealings. Jay wants to be fully legit and he wants to do it with Carmen by his side. To bad she’s married to another man. This fact seems to bother Jay none. He still pursues her much to the dismay of her husband. Detective Michael Kane.
‘She and Kane had been fine until Jay’s lawsuit, which sent them spiraling back into a place that neither one of them wanted to be. Carmen wanted to come up with an answer to fix everything, but she couldn’t. Softly crying, she did the only thing she knew how; she prayed to God for guidance and strength.’ Inner monologue of Carmen
Carmen is a wealthy fashion designer caught between two men who both want her heart. Her first love, Jay and her husband,Kane. Jay is the father of her eldest son, King and her baby girl, Nyla. The paternity of her son Rakim is now in question. It’s just another reason for Kane and Jay to be at each others throats, a conflict she can no longer stomach. She knows her heart can only belong to one man. And hearts will break when all is said and done.
“You don’t represent any kind of struggle. Everything you have has been handed to you. You make your money by stripping people of their pride and dignity. They lose everything while you gain the world. Like they say, no one man should have all that power. When you get to the top, you have no choice, but to come back down. Sometimes you need someone to pull you. It might as well have been me.” ~Kane to Jay
Kane is on a mission to take down Jay Santiago. He did it before and is more than confident he can do it again. In his mind it’s clear that Jay belongs behind bars. He also sees his imprisonment as way to secure his wife at his side. Kane is not stupid he knows his marriage is in jeopardy. He will get this done. He will keep his wife this time around.
“You’re his father, not his boss.” ~Carmen to Jay
King is free from his incarceration, and freedom has come with responsibility. The Cartel. King did not have the chance to really get to know his dad because for the first 17 years of his young life his dad was in prison. The only father figure he ever had was Kane. His father wants him to take over the cartel. At 20 years old, King has no doubt this will happen but he also seeks his father’s love. A love he is not feeling and it starts to eat away at his soul.
Kristian just wants her mother(Carmen) and Father(Kane) to be happy. TOGETHER. But after witnessing something she knows were not meant for eyes she becomes disheartened. She knows her parents are in a rough patch. Eventually she is off to college and is no longer in control of the bitterness towards her mother. She blames her for the marital problems that not only plague her parents but the entire family.
When a down south hustler comes to New York and expresses more than just an avid interest in the Santiago Cartel. On top of that, Jay has cops hot on his trail seeking his down fall, and a weakness. Lives are at risk. Friends become enemies and enemies become allies. Vengeance is being sought. And the death toll keeps rising.
My Thoughts Surprisingly… I LOVED THIS BOOK! It is a far stretch from my usual reads. I am a romance junkie at heart. And yes this book offers romance but is layered with characters and multiple plot lines. Each twist grabbed me by the collar and refused to let me go. I had to know the outcome. But it looks like I will be waiting for some of the outcomes because the book ends with a F#CKING CLIFFHANGER. This is the third book in the Diamond collection series. I have not read books one and two. These are well seasoned established characters. All are at places in their lives due to a past I was not acquainted with. None of it mattered though. Once I started reading I had no idea I would become so engrossed with the characters but I did. The different stories held my attention and I will now be playing catch up by reading books 1 and 2, which is a must in order to understand some of the character dynamics.
SIDENOTE:For those wondering sex was not a heavy component in this book. I think the first sex scene was at close to 70% in to the book and it was not overly descriptive yet held a nice touch of spice to it. Those who know me know that I am in to raw primal sex and while this did not deliver it I was cool with it the plot had me by the collar as I mentioned above! *Grins*
Characters King-The character that snuck up on me is King, I AM IN LOVE! I want more. I need more. My heart ached for the young man seeking his fathers love. Jay- I love Jay! He does not play GAMES. With no one. And he will not hesitate to eliminate a threat. However his ass needs to wake up and smell the coffee. He needs to show his son some love. I like his relationship with Carmen. She is the mother of his kids and he seeks reconciliation. You can’t blame a man for trying now can we?!? *smirks* Carmen- I have a love hate thing going on with her. I felt the neglect he son Malachi was experiencing and as a young man he really needs guidance the strain on his parents’ marriage had him mostly on the back burner and I found that unfair. Kristian- Hmmm. I don’t like when characters keep important info to themselves… But, I’ll just blame this mistake on her age and call it a day. Other then this flaw I like Kristian and I am interested in what her Nicholas and what can be.
My Ratings Characters- Lovable Writing Style- Good Plot/Storyline- Suspenseful with multiple plots Steam Factor- Low -Steam was on a nice simmer Overall- I LOVED IT!!! Now go forth and read.

Okay, so before...moreSPOILER FREE REVIEW -mature content reader discretion is advised. 3.5 STARS out of 5 Genre: Contemporary Romance Review Posted on 4/17/13
Okay, so before you throw tomatos at me in protest just hear me out.
Remington RIPTIDE Tate is #1 in the underground fighting circuit girls wanna scew him and guys want to be him. Brooke allowed her best friend, Melanie, to talk her in to going to the underground matches. As Melanie screeches her love for RIPTIDE, Brooke can’t help but be pulled into his magnetic force field of high electric energy. And she also can’t stop the fact that after one look from Remy she now desires him just like every other woman in the building. Of course she chooses that moment to flee.
After making quick work of his opponent Remy goes after Brooke. Melanie overhears the introductions and gives Remy Brooke’s number. Much to Brooke’s dismay. Dismayed no more, Brooke is unemployed at the moment and Remy not only offers her tickets for his next match he also follows it up with a job offer. She accepts.
She wants him and he wants her but before he has her, he must tell her the truth.
Can Brooke accept the REAL man who is Remington RIPTIDE Tate?
First let me be clear I did like this book, I will not sit here and act like Katy Evans did not get my panties all in a twist over Remy because she did. Had my ass wanting to hump something like a damn dog in heat.. No lie.LOL!! Remy put out some good swoon worthy vibes. I mean HELLO how can you not when she writes things like
'My legs wobble, and I’m left with the distinct impression this man wants to pound me next. With his cock.' ~Brooke
'He suckles, sucks, turns, twists. I fall in love with his kiss so fast, that soon I don’t know where my hands are, where I’m lying. My entire body is consumed by the way he fucks my mouth until my lips are raw and swollen and it hurts to kiss him back even though my frenzied body demands more.' ~Brooke
And then words like mind-blowing pleasure bolts
My arms clench around his strong neck as he teases the very tip of his finger inside, and a mind-blowing pleasure bolts through me. ~Brooke
I mean COME ON we all want to be sucked-fucked-plucked-twisted- bound-gagged and pounded into, right?!! Oh..wait may be that last bit is just me*shrugs shoulders* WHATEVER you get my drift! *wink,wink*
I’ll start with what I did like The anticipation and build up to Brooke and Remy having sex had me horny as shit. I'm talking jump your man as soon as he walks in the door, HORNY. Now not everyone is a fan of the clenching uterus… Well it bothered me none. I was in deep deep anticipation and was pretty much panting until they sealed the deal. I think Evans did a good job of building up that climax and hit it out the park once the deed was done. – I also enjoyed Remy and his alpha glory – I adored the scenes where they swapped iPod's and played each other music that was so damn cute!!! – I agreed with his decision to wait until after Brooke knew about his…condition for sex (view spoiler)[ He is Bipolar (hide spoiler)] - My fave scene was the one with the roses. No denying that was pretty H O T and there was nothing sexual about it.
What I did not like so much was - Brooke and all her damn muscle terminology - Brooke and her stupid brain fart moment with (view spoiler)[ Scorpio. (hide spoiler)] – Brooke's lusting became a bit repetitive along with her internal monologues. I am BIG on character interaction and this chick was in her head a bit much for my taste buds. It just made me want more Remy. - Remy going from 0 to 60 in a millisecond was crazy and may be accurate.. but what’s the deal with him not remembering things… Is that accurate?? I need to look that up(thinks to self..) - The entire plot with Brooke’s sister Nora fell flat for me. If anything I wanted to see Remy KICK DAT ASS. The whole Scorpio setup was to predictable. I don’t mind predictable but like I said it just fell flat for me.
OVERALL -I’m clearly in a very small minority here…so here is the deal, while I may have enjoyed REAL and all that is Remington RIPTIDE the fact of the matter is the story did not move me. And that is why I gave it 3 STARS. Believe me I love an alpha male just as much as the next girl,however I just found that the story itself did not take me to that place of being forever etched in to my brain. But whatever, it seemed to do that for mostly everyone else. Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, I loved Remy yet did not connect with Brooke. Go figure.

WOW, this one really caught me by surprise and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it!
"You can, Shelly," he said fiercely. "I know you can do this. I believe in you." ~Luke
'He was the goal here; he was the prize. All I had to do here was the impossible. Walk through fire. And I would win a chance with him. Be a normal girl with a normal job, and I would be worthy of it.' ~Inner monologue of Shelly
In Selling Out Shelly is a prostitute trying to break out of the life of prostitution after promising a friend she would stop. Of course stopping a life that has been ingrained into her being for so long is easier said then done. After running in to an obstacle while applying for a job at a book store, Shelly realizes getting out is a dead end. She accepts an upcoming job from her pimp Henri. Henri who is ruthless, knowing there was no way he would let her go so easily anyway.
'This is my life. I could apologize for it, but I couldn't change it anymore than a ship could change the tides' ~ Inner monologue of Shelly
Feeling like all hope is loss Shelly goes to the hotel where a party is to take place knowing she is a part of the entertainment. A crazy turn of events at the party has Shelly saving a young girl(Ella) plus herself from the life no girl wants to live. Now on the run she seeks the help of two men. Each man lives life on the opposing side of the law, a cop and an ex-dirty-cop. One man should hate her but still seems to desire her and the another man wants her but never makes a move.
'He lived and breathed his work. His crusade against the pimps of Chicago was his mission, the rules and regulations of the Chicago police department his scripture. How could I ask a man to sacrifice his religion?' ~Shelly
'We both knew he wanted my body, and we both knew he wouldn't fuck me.' ~Shelly referring to Luke
The Cop (Luke) Shelly has no options so she goes to Luke for help. She knows him well enough and... well... she use to be his informant. Shelly and Luke never had a fling however there attraction for one another is very strong.
Things don't go so good at Luke's. Shelly and Ella discover via the news that they are now considered fugitives for murder. After leaving that party without actually killing someone they find themselves really on the run from the law now. And from Luke.
The ex-cop (Phillip) Now out of options she must turn to the one man who should hate her for what she did to him. Phillip. Phillip, takes her and Ella allowing them time to map out a strategy. A strategy Shelly realizes that must include Luke.
Luke agrees to help Shelly and both of them put their lives on the line and eventually their hearts too.
“Don’t you see? I want it all. Your pleasure, your pain. Anything you can give me, I crave it.” ~Luke
He pulled my hand away, groaning. “We can’t. You can’t be caught. I couldn’t protect you here.” I let my head fall back against the wall, clearing my head, finding my footing. “No? Well, we can make our last stand here. The star-crossed lovers have to die together, you know. That’s how the story goes.” “Is that what we are?” he murmured. “The hooker and the cop,” I said. “We’re from opposing families. Fated to tragedy.” ~Luke and Shelly
My Thoughts Call me surprised but I can proudly say I very much enjoyed this book I had my moments. I think it may have took time for me to adjust to the plot and the characters, and I did around 30% to 35% in to the book. I love how when Luke's past came in to play Shelly continued to love him. Ummmm, I can't say much I don't wanna give anything away. But I will say that I also loved the twist at the end even tough I saw it coming it was still very sweet.
Dear readers, I recommend this to romance lovers. The story has sexy moments, witty moments and a small dose of action. This book deals with some interesting topics that the review did not touch on, and that topic is incest. Reader beware.

She's Fun, Fierce and HELLO she is Female! What a deadly combination! Just the way I like my heroines!
There is nothing better then when a book exceeds you expectations. This book did just that for me! It’s been a while since I had a kickass heroine who is not afraid to bring a man down to his knees. Ayden is that chick and then some!
"..The fruit that feeds the soul is vengeance.” ~Ayden
Ayden was brutally attacked by a pack of Lycans. After almost dying she joins the Alexi where she is trained to become a non-stop killing machine against Lycans. The mission of the Alexi is to eradicate ALL Lycans. Lycans are monsters living amongst humans. They kill entire families men, women, children even unborn fetuses.
When the book starts Ayden is no longer a member of the Alexi but she is still killing Lycans. A chance encounter with a halfling(human going through the change to full Lycan) has her taking him with her instead of killing him on the spot as she usually does when on the hunt. Ayden has discovered that this halfling(Kane) holds information to the past. Well, at least she suspects that he holds the info after getting a flashback/vision when she touched him.
He has 7 days before his transformation to full Lycan is complete. At the end of those 7 days Ayden will kill him. Because killing Lycans is ingrained in her. Of course her plans for keeping him alive are unknown to Kane. The only thing she does make clear to Kane is the fact that she will kill him.
“We work on the motive of vengeance..." ~Gavin
The sons of Wrath Once you meet them you will want more. More more more!!! Led by the oldest brother, Gavin, the sons of wrath are vengeance Warrior Demons who work with Ayden to kill Lycans. They are selective with each case they take. Ayden is their most recent client. There are seven brothers total. In this book you meet Gavin, Calix, Zayne, Zeke and Logan. And let me tell you each and everyone of them are panty-dropping-H O T!!!
As each day passes the intensity of sexual chemistry between Kane and Ayden goes to new levels. If Ayden decides not to kill him she would have to get whats known as “the antidote”. The problem is..getting “the antidote” comes with a price. A high price called sacrifice. Is Kane worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Truths start to surface as Ayden gets closer to her past. And the Alexi start to close in on their only other target besides the Lycans. Ayden.
My Thoughts LOVED IT! A lot of different characters and more then one story line built to one helluva showdown! Not gonna lie it took I had to get a little more than 30% in to finally feel comfortable with the flow but once I was there... I. WAS. SOLD. I think it took me so long because I struggled to understand Ayden. She was so cruel to Kane, when the poor guy had just been bitten by a wolf. It was literally out of his control. Yet she treated him as a killer from the start, before he fully turned Lycan. The more I got to know her the more things became clearer. All was revealed in a plot that I cannot speak to much on for fear of spoiling the story.
I am super excited for Logan's book! I am also curious how the story will play out between Gavin and Sabelle. What will she require from(view spoiler)[ Gavin, now that he is indebted to her? Also, who is her baby daddy? (hide spoiler)]
If you enjoy PNR's that have multiple plot lines and sexy-alpha-male-brothers that are to die for with a good suspenseful arc! This book is for you!! READ IT!

“You’ve chosen to walk into the lion’s den tonight, sub. There’s no hiding here. Especially not from me.” ~Lucas
Shay Green has decided to give in to temptation and try out her secret erotic fantasies at a Fetish club called Tempest. But when a scene goes wrong she starts to wonder if this might be more then she can handle. Her plea's for her Dom to stop inflicting pain go unanswered. The whip goes to crack through the air again.... When a voice suddenly breaks through, interrupting the scene...
“I’m not usually one to interrupt a scene, but I believe the lady wants you to stop.” Shay nearly sobbed in relief, the sound almost drowning out Bobby’s reply: “Well, you are interrupting,” he snapped. “No! Please,” she interjected quickly. “I want to stop.” She tried to crane her head back to look at her tormentor and her savior, but her restraints prevented her from seeing them. Please, she thought desperately. Please listen to me. She forced her tone to harden. “I may be a submissive, but I do have rights.” “We’re not finished-” Began Bobby’s cruel voice. “Do you want to use your safe word, sub?” The stranger cut across him.“Safe word?” Shay asked. She had heard of those, but Bobby hadn’t discussed them with her.
Shay is released from her restraints and quickly whisked away. When She finally gets an up close and personal look at her rescuer she is genuinely pleased not only by what she sees but what she hears too.
'God, his voice was sexy: a deep rumble that sent tingles up her spine. And that accent! Yummy. He was definitely English. What American woman didn’t love a guy with an English accent? She was suddenly acutely aware of the fact that she was almost naked and in the arms of a complete stranger. A sexy stranger whose gorgeous eyes were roving up and down her body appreciatively.'
Lucas is captivated by the gorgeous curvacious red head in his lap. After she willingly submits to him, he decides that he wants more time with her. He offers up the chance for Shay to be his sub for a weekend. And she accepts.
The meeting Billionaire Lucas Cross is currently in Charlotte, N.C. to look at designs for his new state side headquarters. Even though he should be focused on work he can't seem to get his mind off the sub he met at Tempest. Shay will be the first woman he has had in over three years, for more than one night.
Busy trying to gather her nerves and her paper work for her meeting, Shay starts to prep for her new client. Only to be thrown off by said clients identity. Lucas Cross aka the sexy guy she recently met at Tempest.
It doesn't take long for the awkwardness to subside before the sexual tension sets in. Thankfully Shay's boss interrupts and the meeting carries on in a professional manner.
The weekend Lucas is excited to show Shay the wonderful world of BDSM. However he is not excited when they run in to his business partner Jonathan at a sex club. Jonathan is also a Dom.
'Shay realized that her mouth was hanging open slightly as she stared at Jonathan. She snapped it closed quickly as Lucas said her name, calling her back to reality.' “Jonathan, this is Shay.”
Shay immediately picks up on a change in Lucas after Jonathan's arrival. It's subtle but a change none the less. Lucas is jealous. She quietly tucks that info away. Since he is not looking for a sub Lucas decides that after this weekend he will no longer see Shay. This decision leaves an opening for his business partner, Jonathan. His rival.
Jonathan is an American, he has a charming southern accent and is drop dead gorgeous. Once back state side he does not hesitate to invite Shay out. She says yes! Shay soon realizes that Jonathan is not only in to BDSM but is a Dom too, just like Lucas.
While Jonathan may be fun and sexually spontaneous. Lucas is seductive and has already managed to ensnare Shay's heart.
They both want her. But only one can have her...
All this sexual fun is about to come to a head as jealousy and rivalry carry deadly effects.
My Thoughts I enjoyed this read. I do think this is more so for smut lovers. The tone was more on the fantasy side, it had some unrealistic aspects. For instance I do not recall any mention of condoms or protection what so ever. To me that is more fantasy erotic style story telling. You know what I'm referring to right? When the characters have wild sex but never worry about the consequences. Yeah, that. Don't get it twisted, it's nothing wrong with this style of writing. I just felt it necessary to mention in the review. The story also took a very unexpected turn plot wise. It had a little suspense thrown in which was fun.

Quick read but a goodread! The captor of our hearts Caleb, takes us on a journey of how he and Livvie learn to move forward after going through hell and back. Caleb finds himself asking "Who am I" at the age of 27, an age when most have figured such a thing out. Yet in a sense he is just beginning.
If you have read The Dark Duet series then you are familiar with his back story as a child prostitute, as a killer, as an abductor. You are painfully aware that this is not easy for him to move on from that life to live a normal one... A life with out killing abducting and training women to be sex slaves. On top of that the woman he loves was once his captive. And she is still trying to move on from the traumatic experience that forever changed her life.
So now here he stands wanting her, loving her and hoping in his heart that she returns his sentiments. And she does in equal measure. But the pain is still raw and she let's him know it.
“Did you realize you loved me while I was alone in the hospital and weeping over you? When did you shout your love from the rooftops, Caleb? I couldn’t hear you. I was too busy trying to fucking breathe without you. I was busy convincing everyone around me I wasn’t crazy for defending my kidnapper. So, remind me. When did you say the words? I’ll be sure to go back in time and comfort the broken girl you left in your wake. Your love can comfort her, because I’m not the same person anymore..." ~Livvie
At times this book was a hard pill to swallow. Two emotionally damaged people the inflicter and his tormented prisoner what a pair. Some how they make it work he comes to accept the new Livvie, her new life and her new friends. However in between the emotionally charged fights and the incredibly delicious sex scenes I feel like the book ended and Caleb is still trying to find himself now as James. Or maybe a better way to say it is, he is accepting himself as James. I don't know. I did not feel....closure. Am I alone on this???
On top of that the ending had a "for now" sign on it. THE END(for now) Is it possible we'll hear from these two again? I hope so!
C A P T I V E This is not a romance. Romances are filled with valiant men and simpering damsels in distress. Romances have heroes worthy of the title. They slay dragons and climb towers to rescue beautiful princesses they immediately marry and impregnate. Romances end with a happily ever after. This is not a romance. This is a love story. The characters are flawed to the point of being broken. The hero is beautiful, but ugly in ways that defy the ordinary imagination. The heroine isn’t trapped in a tower, but a dark and lonely room. There is no prince coming to save her. While love blooms and thrives, there is no happily ever after. Love does not always begin or end the way we wish it would. A love story can happen to anyone. This one happened to me. ~Livvie

Mission Location: P A R I S
Most American's go to Paris, France to vacay. They enjoy the sights, the cuisine, the art and much more. Jessica Booker however is here on a mission... A Top Secret mission for the CIA.
When the book starts Jessica, under the cover name of Lori is at a meet spot to connect with her handler. The handler will be providing the info needed for her mission. Color her surprised when she realizes her handler is Agent Sims. Sims was her CIA training instructor, not to mention the man is sexy as all hell. Regardless this attraction she feels for him is something she does not need right now.
“Hi, Lori,” a man says, using my new cover name as he approaches the bar. My heart quickens when I recognize the low raspy voice. “Sims.” His real name jumps out of my mouth before I can stop it.
She screws up right out of the batting cage by calling him by his real name. That is a BIG no no while out in the field..it could lead to disaster. After a few failed attempts to capture his attention on a more intimate level the meeting is wrapped up and he's gone. First she takes a small detour to the room of an obviously inebriated hottie from the bar. Her already horny mood from the run in with agent Sims is sky rocketing.
She quickly reasons that the needs agent Sims failed to meet can be fulfilled by the hottie instead. Yet knowing she needs to focus on the mission at hand leads her to regretfully stop the magic before it happens. The drunken hottie doesn't seem to mind though as he is now passed out on bed.
Arriving at her room, Jessica boots up her computer, accesses her email and punches in the codes that reveal her job. Once she has her missions target she is off to meet the man who holds the key to said mission. Geoffry Pinot, a french businessman.
Quick thinking has her in his apartment and sitting on his couch in no time. THAT'S when things begin to really heat up. Jessica uses her femininity and wanton ways to get Geoffrey relaxed. Well maybe relaxed is the wrong word.. She actually gets him all wound up.
I inch closer to him. “Thank you so much for your help, Mr. Pinot. Geoffrey.” I put my hand on his thigh and gently squeeze. His thigh is rock hard. He works out. I’m going to enjoy this. “I guess you might say, I owe you.” He’s still halfway hard, and when I bite my lower lip, his mouth opens and he takes in a breath. I sit up, arching my back to expose my chest for him to get a better look at the goods. The lump in his pants jumps.
Some small connection passes between the two. The chemistry is intense... Jessica can see the hope for more in his eyes. But she can't give him more. Not with her job.
No harm no foul... She was there to do one thing, so she walked away and denied the connection. Never the less the job is done plus she managed to get in some satisfaction courteous of the sexy french businessman.
When her second mission brings her face to face with Geoffrey and the front end of his gun.. The tension escalates as things go from bad to extremely bad.
'Geoffrey is on the other side of the office in a small seating area with a couch and some plush leather chairs. His laptop is open on the coffee table in front of him, and he is aiming a gun right at me. Every muscle in my body goes rigid. This is the first time I’ve looked down the barrel of a gun. It won’t be the last. I realize I’m holding my breath, and force myself to breathe. Remain calm. Panic gets people killed. I push myself through the shock, and back to the present. When he recognizes me, he becomes confused.' “Why are you here, Lori?” he asks, keeping the gun trained on me.
He no longer trusts her. But he should. Because his life is now in her hands. He no longer has a choice and neither does she. She must protect him and he must allow it. There is NO other option.
“Geoffrey?” “Yes, Lori.” “Can you think of any reason that someone would want to kidnap you?” “You mean you don’t know why these people are after me? I assumed it was because of what’s in those boxes NATO hired me to make.” “Yes, but they’re not going after the boxes anymore—they’re only targeting you. Do you know why that would be?” Silence fills the room, and I wait patiently for him to answer. “Who did you say you worked for again?” Geoffrey asks. “I didn’t,” I say, hoping he will leave it. “Is Lori even your real name?”
When Jessica realizes how deep the greed runs with rouge agents... Betrayal takes on new heights...
Can she save herself and Geoffrey along with the secrets he hold that could inexplicably change the world.

"I am broken and damaged in all kind of ways. I’m not perfect, and I feel like you see me as a perfect when I’m not, far from it." ~Norah
Needing to escape New York and the pain from her past. Norah Ross decides to move and finish her last semester at McLaren University in Morewell. Now reunited with her best friend Josh who attends the same school. Josh wants in to the "Lappell" a secret society with "prestige." And he is now in the process of making that happen.
Things start to slowly move from the friend to.. more then friends zone.
'This was it, our first kiss, the moment had arrived. I watched as his lips moved towards my lips, and I began to close my eyes as we were about to take the next step, crossing the line over from friendship to something more. So much more. I was ready and I wanted it. My heart was bracing for an explosion of fireworks that I believed were imminent when…' ~Norah
However one night at a party changes that. In fact Norah has no idea what or who awaits her. At this "exclusive Lappell" party Norah meets Clint Weston.
“You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, OK Norah,” Josh whispered into my ear...
'...and suddenly alarm bells went off in my head. I opened my mouth, ready to fire a million questions at him about what he meant by that comment, when a very tall, handsome blond guy in an impeccably fitted tuxedo stepped in front of us, stopping us in our tracks. My heart fluttered for a brief moment at the sight of his gorgeous appearance. Holy fuck!
Mr. Gorgeous then introduces himself..
“Clint Weston. This is my house. I’m also Josh’s group leader.”
Clint is tall, blonde, rich and gorgeous. The attraction is so palpable they can feel it in the air. So when Clint tries to get her to not only leave the party early but to leave solo minus Josh. It sends Norah on high alert.
She goes looking for Josh and what she discovers leaves her UTTERLY SPEECHLESS
* It does not take long before Clint asks Norah out. Once they begin to date she quickly realizes that Clint is more so living the life set before him. Opposed to living the life he would have chosen for himself. When the Lappell take an interest in Norah she becomes very vocal about the fact that she does not return that interest. This causes a small rift between her and Clint.
Lies, deceit and old skeletons from the past begin to put Norah in a dangerous position.
Norah has secrets and she begins to wonder if she can trust Clint with them.
Would he still love her after she tells him the truth?
"Nothing you can say will change how I feel about you.." ~Clint
And that may be true. The problem is Clint has secrets too and when they come to light Norah faces the betrayal head on. Josh, her ever present back bone takes the opportunity to let her know that he will always be there for her. Making it crystal clear that he loves and still wants her.
Suddenly everything becomes eclipsed by a face from her past. Samuel. A face she thought she would never see again.
My Thoughts I really enjoyed this book. I loved Norah. I loved her style she was fashionable, artistic, intelligent and knew how to use a gun. She adapted to her surroundings easily and was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Needless to say she was my kind of girl. I thought the writing was good as well. The book kept a good pace and held a mystery within the story lines up to the last page. Also lot's of twist and turns. Some I saw coming and some I did not.
Dear Readers I gave this book 4 stars because it constantly kept me guessing. You start the book thinking it's going in one direction up until the rode splits. Then you find yourself going in multiple directions. It also included a very HOT sex scene involving a naked Norah, a naked Clint, paint and a canvas.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS -none will hinder your reading experience and are alluded to in the synopsis 3 STARS out of 5 Genre: Romantic Thriller/Suspense
Her final memory of Carter floated around her, replaying like a syndicated sitcom. “Please stay with me, Carter.” Anne stood in the threshold of Carter’s bedroom while he continued to pack his navy blue camping sack. “It’s only for three nights. You worry too much.” “I have a bad feeling about this.”
It's been three years since the death of her boyfriend Carter Leeds and Anne still struggles with it. Now engaged to wed a very well respected attorney, Adam Whitney, Anne wants nothing more than to be free of her demons. And in order to be free Anne has to fight for it. Literally.
Anne Jamison is a neuropsychologist working and sharing a Minneapolis office with her best friend Casey. And it is while she is at her office when an envelope addressed to her is left containing pictures taken of Carter on the day he died. Frozen in place it takes Anne a minute to get herself together and ask her assistant who delivered the envelope. Of course the assistant has no clue as to who did...
Carters death had always been surrounded by so many unanswered questions. And now Anne has more questions.. Like, who is the mystery guy in the photo? Who wanted her to have the photos?
And more importantly
'Why now? Three years have passed so why would anyone want me to have these photos?' -Inner monologue of Anne
As questions are answered Anne is stunned by the information she learns.
“I just couldn’t stay away from you any longer. There’s so much I want to say, so much I want to tell you. Once I heard you were engaged to Adam I couldn’t…” -Carter
Carter being alive is just the tip of the iceberg. Anne begins to question everything.
“You can’t marry him, Anneliese. You don’t know him like I do,”Carter begged. “What does that mean? How do you even know Adam?”
According to Carter Adam cannot be trusted and her life is in danger.
But how honest is Carter can she trust him after his own death proved to be false? Anne decides to search for answers from Adam.
“You quickly forget that I’m the psychologist. I take pleasure in the mind games.” He stood up, loosening his navy tie and rolling the sleeves of his crisp snowy shirt. He crossed the room to the rustic bar. “How quickly you forget, I’m the lawyer. I take pleasure in arguing my way out of tight situations.”
Who is Adam Whitney? -Is he the sexy well accomplished attorney she plans to marry. -Is it possible he could be a killer? -What was Adam's role in Carter's disappearance?
And who is telling the truth Carter or Adam?
Twist after twist lead to a shocking conclusion when Deceit, lust and lies leave a web of Deadly Deception.
Thoughts Honestly I thought the author had a great concept; I just failed to connect with the main character. I did not get to know Anne well enough to feel empathy for her. Nor the love and connection she Carter or Adam was supposed to have. The connection for the two leading men never really came across on the pages for me; personally I wanted more. In my humble opinion I think if the book had a good 50 more pages I would have been able to connect better. Even if it was with a few more flashbacks to before Carter died to gauge the depth of love the two shared. I don't know... I just felt like I needed more...
Dear readers I gave this book 3 stars simply because I failed to connect with the main character. Plus I felt all of the characters lacked the depth and intensity I look for in (throws hands up and makes air quotes)Thrillers. I thought Anne's patient, the ten year old girl... Yeah, the girl, she made for a more intriguing storyline. Heck at one point I wanted to know more about the girl/patient and her mother.
Bottom line -If you have a half crazy character with a whole personality they've never displayed before I would like to know why. Or at least where it stemmed from...give me something.
My Ratings Characters- likeable Writing Style- Fair Plot/Storyline- I felt like something was missing I wanted more Steam Factor- Low/Light on a simmer Overall- Not my cup of tea Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads!

'It was so motherfucking good; she looked like a goddamn sex angel, face flushed and breathing hard, whimpering and crying as he took her hard and fast and she felt like heaven, tight and soft and smooth. He felt the walls of his world start to shake and the bricks began to fall… ONE BY ONE until it was a free-for-all and suddenly he could breathe again when he hadn’t even realized he’d been holding his breath.
Breath he’d been holding for the last five years.' ~Ripper
'Yeah, he wanted to lay claim to Danielle West, ink his name on her body and slap an old lady patch on her ass. And worse, he wanted the world to know it. It was at that precise moment that Ripper knew his world had shattered for a third time, had crumbled and turned to dust at his feet. Nothing from here on out would ever again be the same.' ~Ripper
FAVE scenes and/or lines said and unsaid
'She’d fucked him, both literally and figuratively. He’d been done for the moment she’d called him beautiful. Jesus, he was only human.' Inner monologue of Ripper
'If I wanted this man, I already knew what would be expected of me. Was I prepared for all that came with it? No. But I was a fast learner and everything about Ripper had my body screaming he’s worth it, he’s worth it.' ~Inner monologue of Danny
“Ready?” the minister asked. “Fuck, yeah,” he said gruffly. “This bitch is mine.” ~Deuce
“He’s big,” I admitted. “But I don’t have much to compare him to.” “I want inches and circumference,” she said, her tone matter-of-fact. “Oh my god, Anabeth, seriously?” “Seriously.”
…And he kissed her. And kissed her. Fucking kissed her. Kissed the fucking shit out of her. Kissed her the way he’d been wanting to kiss her since he’d left her. “Fuck,” he muttered in between kisses. Suffocating, nearly violent kisses that were growing harder, even more demanding. ~Inner monologue of Ripper
'Jesus. Why couldn’t he have had boys? All boys. Little fucking shits like Cage. A whole slew of ’em he could throw condoms at and be done with it.' ~Inner monologue of Deuce

This is not your average love story..... Eva met the love of her life at the age of five. He was twenty-three. She is the daughter of a MC President. He is the son of a MC president. She is a Silver Demon. He is a Hell's Horseman. No, this is not a paranormal book . MC stands for motorcycle club. Silver Demon and Hell's Horseman are the names of two rival gangs of criminals who go by their on set of rules. You and me kid, we were fuckin’ born in the life, reared by the road and the wheel; it’s what we know and where we belong but that don’t mean it won’t take its toll. So you promise me, no matter what you see, no matter what sort of fucked up shit happens to you. Don’t let this life turn you bitter.” ~Deuce to Eva
Deuce and Eva Eva meets the love of her life in a common yet unexpected place on the right day at the right time. FATE. They both have a connection it is in no way, shape or form sexual. It was more like kindred spirits connecting. Through out her life the years pass and they have run in's with one another. When she is sixteen he no longer sees the skinny little girl she once was. He sees a girl becoming a woman. When Eva is eighteen he desires the woman he sees, he wants the woman he sees, he takes the woman that he sees. 'He saw the change in me, noticed it instantly. His nostrils flared and his eyes darkened with hunger. I knew this look. Deuce was hungry. I was food. I loved that look. It made me feel beautiful, powerful and utterly feminine. I sucked in air through my nose willing myself to stay put when I wanted nothing more than to run to him, strip him naked and fuck him blind. ~Eva's Inner Monologue
Nothing about their journey is easy, it is filled with pain, pleasure, lust betrayal, death, and unforeseen consequences. Some good, some bad. In the end all they have is LOVE. He filled with primal male satisfaction. She wanted him. Her, a fucking angel in a mess of demons, wanted him, one of the biggest fucking demons he knew. ~Deuce Thoughts I loved this book! It was ALPHA MALE HEAVEN! The author kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was everything I needed and wanted in a book. It was raw, intense, edgy and emotional. I could tell the author was unafraid to take risk with her characters and push their limits. As a reader I LOVED that. I found the characters to be very well developed, we felt their emotions and understood their actions. Whether we liked them or not. I fell in love with a lot of the secondary characters too especially Cox and Kami.
CHARACTERS Eva- I loved Eva even though I did not always agree with her decisions. She was fun fearless and played a dominant role in the life of plenty of ALPHA MALES. I loved her. Flaws and all. Period. Kami- Was another character I absolutely loved she is Eva's best friend and was a hilarious ball of fire. Check her out in the scene I posted below “Boys?” Kami swept her long blonde hair over her shoulder and cocked her hip. “This is my last summer of freedom. My dad is a rich asshole who is making me marry another rich asshole. I have three months left before I become a proper little Jackie O and have to start fucking my staff just so I can get off. That being said, if you guys don’t mind sharing, I’ve got a whole lot to give.” “I don’t,” Cox said quickly. “Nope, me either,” Ripper said. The Men Deuce- RAW. All masculine all alpha no in between. If you are with him, what he says goes. Period. He was DELICIOUS I fell head over heels in love with his character. He messed up and I forgave him every damn time. Frankie- UNTOUCHABLE. I coined him untouchable because the guy reminded me of a lion roaming the jungle like he owned it, knowing that no one would dare touch him. Eva could though.... He loved Eva and he was obsessive and possessive with her. She was like his anchor, she could tame his beast. Or could she??? Chase- CUNNING. The guy was manipulative. He was patient and knew when to strike to get what he wanted. He was also an asshole. BIG TIME. I hated and empathized for both him and Frankie. Bravo to the author for bringing out those feelings in me.
Fave Lines said and unsaid My mouth loved Deuce, my hands loved Deuce, my body loved Deuce. Loved, loved, loved, loved… I loved Deuce. Loved. ~Eva's Inner monologue "Know I don't deserve nothin' as sweet as you," He whispered darkly as his hand dipped in between my legs. "Anything a man's gotta steal to have he don't deserve." “You didn't steal this,” I breathed, writhing against his hand. "I gave it." ~Deuce and Eva "My cash is legally earned," Chase stated. "Not a drop of blood on it." I glared at him. "You're a lawyer Chase. There's blood all over you." ~Chase and Eva "There you fuckin' are Eva. Gotta keep fuckin' you to remind you where you belong, I got no problem with it." ~Deuce “Son, you are a fuckin’ moron. You wanna know what I see? I see a girl who isn’t just a girl but a fuckin’ prize and why the fuck she chose an asshole like you to give that fuckin’ prize to I haven’t a fuckin’ clue. Stupid if you ask me. ~Blue to Deuce, referring to Eva

HO. LEE. SHIT. HOT. This book was FIRE!
First off... Olivia needs to back up because Cash Davenport is mine Bitch.
Now look, I do not want to have to get violent.. But best believe I will cut a BITCH!
Fictional? **shrugs shoulders** Who cares.
Ok, now that I've let you all know how I really feel we can move on. *Smirks*
'What in the world have I done? Not only did I do exactly what I knew I shouldn’t—get involved with another bad boy—but I went and picked one that actually has a dangerous past. He’s not just dangerous to my heart; he’s dangerous period! ~Olivia
Layers of DECEIT... Danger becomes an all to real part of Olivia's life when the Russian mob closes in on Cash. And now with Marissa being kidnapped and held in exchange for the information Cash holds... Info which by the way could give the Russian's serious prison time; Cash is forced to make some very hard decisions.
He reaches out to his father for help and what he gets leaves him SHOCKED causing his trust to falter.
With so much on the line can anyone be trusted?I think NOT.
His father sends someone to help him, but Cash decides to take matters in to his own hands when it concerns Olivia's life. He calls Gavin. Someone he's known for years who also helps him manage Duel. Gavin has a background as a mercenary, he is smart and has the experience Cash needs in order to keep Olivia safe.
Of course things don't go as always planned.
I won't go to far in to the plot because I don't want to spill spoilers. I will say this.. The book is filled with sexy moments that will leave you salivating and squirming in your seat horny as HELL.
Damn just thinking about it causes me to sweat!
Fave sexy Lines
“All I could think about was what you look like naked and the little noises you make when I stick my tongue inside you.” ~Cash
“Tell me you trust me.” “I trust you.” He exhales, his warm breath fanning my face. “Now tell me you want me to touch you.” ~Cash
“Do you like the thought of someone watching you ride me? Watching you slide up and down on me? Watching your face when you come for me? Watching your mouth move as you say my name, over and over again?” ~Cash
Fave new term
'But wouldn’t it be a freakin’ miracle if this whole ordeal unbitchified her? ~Cash referring to Marissa
Fave LOL moment
"I’m just happy to see your hen house being taken care of by such a fabulous cock.” She leans in and whispers to me, “And it is a fabulous cock, am I right?” ~Ginger
My Thoughts In all honesty plot wise I thought the book was okay, I predicted one of the twist early on and was not shocked as I read it play out. I was kinda pissed at Olivia and her doubts with Cash. I guess in her position I could understand it but she let Taryn get in her head a little and that just made me mad.
Dear readers this book gets a 3.5 star rating because the plot was not as attention grabbing as it was the first time around for me. Plus I figured out a twist. HOWEVER Cash was so HOT that I gave it 4 stars on the Goodreads star rating system.
