Feelings are a luxury I can’t afford. Hidden behind a shield of quiet placidity, I keep my secret safe from those who’d use it against me. Until him—the tatted up, self-centered Scar assassin hired to protect me.

He takes pleasure in tormenting me, chipping away at my defenses as if I’m a toy to be played with. I hate that he con

Take is book one in Nashoda Rose’s new series entitled Scars of the Wraiths. This book also marks my first read by this author. I know what you are thinking. YOUR FIRST BOOK BY NASHODA ROSE? ARE YOU ON CRACK??? After reading this one, the answer to that would be a resounding yes.... I certainly believe I was under the influence to have never picked up one of her books previously. I feel shame. I mean, this book was fantastically amazing! I am officially on the Nashoda Rose cho

...we were all a product of our past; it was just how we lived with what we experienced that shaped us into who we became.


Having read Nashoda's entire back list, it's safe to say that she has this incredible ability to completely suck you into her stories in just one short chapter. And then she'll keep you glued to the pages, at the edge of your seat, with a quick paced plot that's as sexy as it is entertaining. When I found out that she'll be releasing a new PNR book, I jumped at the

First off I really have to say, this has got to be one of my favorite covers by far, there is just something that called to me from the very first time I saw it; leaving me completely captivated. I'm even more excited to say that it isn't just a beautiful cover, but the story was equally captivating from the beginning to the very end.

Because pretty much from page 1, I was like





Grits
Lilac
Long Necks
Maite
Pests
Sublymns
Talde
Taldeburu
Wraiths


I have no idea what's going on...



My puny brain can't handle that much thought. I need simple.

I never really understood the CWO - Center World Order.

I never really felt the connection between Max and Jasper.

INSTA-LUST!

I should just stay away from paranormal....unless they involve cute cuddly male cats!

It sure didn't disappoint. I wasn't sure what to expect but from the beginning I was hooked. The fact that is written on both POV makes this story so much interesting. Jasper had a sad past that made him a cold blooded hitman.
This book opens up with Jasper's past and I tell you I was hurting for him and I instantly loved him.

This was my second read by Nashoda Rose and I gotta say, I really like her writing. I’m so-so on PNR, it depends on my mood, the story and the writer. Well, the stars were aligned because I loved this!

First off, this story had what I love the most, a super hot, sexy, cocky, arrogant Alpha. My panties were soaked over Jasper Kyelin – an assassin Scar – “…threatening and virile. A predator.”

This is one of the book whereby the action and fast pacing of the plot drew me into the story. I just need to know what happen next!

The hero, Jasper is not everyone cuppa. He is an immortal hitman with no moral. He came off really offensive and class A jackass, is not even the lovable kind. Even his POV don't endear his personality to me. If he mentioned one more time how he wanted to sink his cock into the heroine thigh, I will sink a knife into his gut. It really takes time for me to warm up

I'll be honest. This book has a steep learning curve. The first chapter or two read like there was a book that came before this one. I felt like I missed out on the world building part of the novel. I kept having to refer to the glossary the author provided at the beginning. Once it got going, however, I really got caught up in the story.

It was a 3.5 - 4 star read for me up until 75-80%. Then, BAM!
