Synopsis

I have blood on my hands.

Blood that isn’t mine.

I had thought I had escaped my past. I had thought I had finally freed myself.

But can you really escape your monsters?

With a gang war looming on the horizon, bodies piling up, and a strange new student claiming ties to the Shadow Man, I find myself looking into my past.

Will I be able to uncover the mysteries surrounding my upbringing and the Shadow Man?

And what if the monster that needs to be stopped is me?

This is a reverse harem slow-burn horror novel. It is the second in a series. This book WILL END IN A CLIFFHANGER. If that bothers you, please wait until all books are released. With this style of series, not all questions will be answered every book, and more might pop up along the way. At the end of the series, there will be a HEA for Cami and her guys.

WARNING: This book contains language, violence, horror themes, and sexual situations that may not be appropriate for people of all ages.

My thoughts 💭

The creepy goodness continues in book 2. That cliffhanger had on the edge of my seat! The guys have accepted they are apart of Cami’s harem and are all in with her and finding answers to why she’s haunted by the shadow man. I enjoyed this book.

I feel like I should say I DNF book 3 of the series. It got uninteresting for me.

Can the man with no future save the woman without a past?

At seventeen, a tragic accident left Mila Evans, orphaned, with no memory… of either her life before her accident or her true self. Moving forward with life, Mila chose to ignore anything and everything before the accident. Never attempting to even try to remember her past life. That is until she met Tariq and simply living no longer suited her. Tariq made her feel, but more than that he pushed her out of her comfort zone, pushed her to want to remember…

There was no need to dwell on the stupid things he did when he was young; Tariq is now saving lives… Making a difference.

A threat to Mila will force them to either confront their pasts or sacrifice their future together…


Excerpt

He pulled her into his arms. “Good night, Mila.”
She looked up at him, frowning. “What? All that build up. I thought we’d—”
“Screw each other’s brains out?” He didn’t let go of her. “I told you, I want to enjoy you. I want to savour you.” 
Mila pulled her bottom lip between her teeth. “So, this is a marathon, not a sprint.” Which was fine, except she was horny as hell.
He tilted his head. “More or less.” He lowered his head to hers, his lips millimetres from hers. “There will be sex. If I have my way, lots of it. But you’re tired.” 
She nodded and lifted her face to him. He lowered his face to her. His lips brushed hers before pressing against her mouth. The kiss deepened and ignited her entire body. She had to restrain herself from mounting him. He threaded his hands through her hair, and she let out a gasp, opening her mouth to him. Their tongues danced; the world disappeared. He pushed her against the door, holding her up as she melted into him. His erection was hard and large against her belly. Too soon, he pulled away. They were both panting as he held on to her while she found her footing. 
Yeah, they were going to have to take things slow if they were going to enjoy each other. Because , wow, that kiss was explosive. It was more than she imagined, and it still left her wanting more.
He let go of her. “Sweet dreams, Mila.”

Mass Market Paperback: https://amzn.to/3dJkl7Y

SYNOPSIS

When a shy woman inherits a ranch, she’ll have to find an inner strength to succeed—and open herself up to love—in this heartwarming novel from New York Times bestselling author Victoria James.

Sarah Turner has led a very sheltered life. So when her parents pass away tragically, suddenly she’s left in charge of the family ranch with little know-how but plenty of will to keep it afloat. Determined not to lose her parents’ legacy or her newfound independence, she needs a hero fast—not to save her, but to show her how to save herself. But she’s unprepared for the ruggedly handsome cowboy who answers her ad.

“Cowboy for Hire,” the ad said, and Cade Walker is quick to respond. Betrayed as ranch manager by his former boss, he’s looking for a new place to put down roots—without the pressure to prove himself again. Except when he meets his new boss, it’s clear he’s not only there to run a ranch but to also teach Miss Independent how to run it. But as they struggle to make the ranch flourish, they’ll both need courage if they hope to find a family…together.

Excerpt

She stole a glance behind her, seeking out the figure of one man among all those cowboys. She spotted Cade immediately, not going in the direction of the bunkhouse or his house, insteadstriding toward her. His hat was pulled down low,but he moved with the same grace and strength as always. You would never think they’d just been onthe same cattle drive. She tried not to hate him for it.

“Hi,” he said as soon as he was within earshot.

“Hi,” she said.

“I, uh, I just wanted to say that you did good out there; you should be proud of yourself. Get a
good night’s sleep. Tomorrow you’re going to hurt like hell, but that satisfaction of what you accom-plished will help you get through it—along withsome ibuprofen. It’s a pleasure to work alongside you.”

That praise pierced her in the heart. This man she barely knew had offered her more praise
in two weeks’ time than her parents ever had. She had accomplished so little the last ten years
and now, here she was, pursuing her dreams, not failing, not scared. “You too. Thank you for never patronizing me or holding me back. This was verypersonal for me,” she said, holding his gaze.

“I get that. So...I’ll pick you up tomorrow around seven?”

“Tomorrow?”

“The welcome-back party,” he said.

Right. That was tomorrow. She wasn’t sure she’d even be able to walk tomorrow, let alone go
to a party. “Yes, uh, of course. Looking forward to it,” she said, alarmed that her voice sounded
breathy. It wasn’t a date.

“Me too.” He reached forward and gently grasped her wrists, and her breath caught in her
throat as he slowly turned them over, looking at her hands. Her palms were blistered and dirty.
He held her hands gently in his larger ones and winced. “Take a long, hot shower and clean these
out, then put some kind of balm on them. Drink a lot of water, have dinner and ibuprofen. You’ll
wake up feeling like a new person.”

Her breath was caught somewhere between here and the reality of how easy it would be to fall
for this man. He didn’t coddle her like everyone else. He hadn’t dismissed her—he’d helped build her up into the beginnings of the person she wanted to be. He hadn’t judged her, hadn’t madeher feel inferior—he’d encouraged her and he’d helped her. No, he’d given her everything she’d ever wanted since he’d come to work here, so many dreams come true.

With that, he gave a small tip of his hat, and her throat constricted painfully as she stared into his
eyes, shadowed under the hat’s brim. He turned and strode back toward his house, broad shoul
ders, lean form, walking as though there wasn’t an ache in his entire body…and he became the star of every single fantasy she’d ever had about the kind of man she wanted. She placed her hand over her racing heart. Wow.

Review: Gangs And Ghosts by Katie May

Length: 280 pages

Published: November 10, 2018

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

When I was three-years-old, I was found homeless in the woods, alone and feral.

When asked how I survived all of those years by myself, I had one answer: the Shadow Man.

I have no memory of that time. No memory of anything, really, before the accident. I rely on stories from my fathers about this supposed imaginary friend.

Got into a fight at school? The Shadow Man made me. Stole from a store? He forced me to. Snuck out of the house? He came with me.

I had almost completely forgotten about him.

Until I move into the horror house – the house rumored to be a gateway to hell. Strange things keep happening, and I am helpless to prevent them.

More importantly, people keep dying.

Particularly, people that harm me.

It’s already a struggle to survive a new high school and town (including the attention of a dangerous gang), but now I have to survive ghosts too?

One thing becomes painstakingly clear:

The Shadow Man wants me to come home.

This is a young adult, slow-burn, horror reverse harem romance. It is the first in a series and WILL end in a cliff-hanger!

My thoughts 💭

This book was creepy and good! I was hooked from beginning to end and I can’t wait to find out what’s next for Cami!

Womanizer. Player.
We all know them. And sometimes, we’ve loved one.

My first mistake was to trust the rocker with a charming smile. My second, believing he’d never hurt me.

My final mistake will not be to repeat steps one and two.

People change as they mature. They live, and they learn. Emery? He’s not one of those people.
He tells me that he needs me, and I wish I could say I didn’t feel the same.
Problem is, I’m also one of those people who never change. But I do learn …

And I know that the worst mistake I could make wouldn’t be to repeat the past.
It would be to let him go.
