Synopsis

My indentured servitude is almost over and freedom is a heartbeat away!

Until some alien guy buys me because he needs a nanny, quick. What the actual f@ck? I’m not even good with kids. I’ve never changed a diaper in my life. But the beings at the employment agency won’t listen. “Hew-mans are hot right now. Everyone wants a hew-man nanny.” Great. And since there isn’t another human available… I’m hired on the spot.

Yay, me.

And on day one of my new job I’m having a panic attack because I finally meet my new boss and he looks like Satan himself. No lie. Black horns, red eyes and glinting silver-tipped claws. He even has a barbed tail, a forked tongue, and he breathes fire. This guy is terrifying, and his children look exactly like him.

*heart palpitations* *hyperventilating*

And yet, as I’m caring for these strangely adorable infants and gazing longingly at my crazy-rich boss as he cradles his twin babies in his huge, muscular arms… my traitorous heart goes pitter-patter and my body heats up like lava.

Oh no.

And I begin to wonder — have I sold my soul to the devil?

My thoughts 💭

I loved this book. Riley takes one last job being a nanny to the devil like alien Aegir. They have amazing chemistry but they have to fight it until Aegir is able to claim her. Riley continues to care and love his children while getting impatient for her husband to claim her. This was an enjoyable read. I definitely recommend! I can’t wait to read Bergelmir and Chloe’s book!

Jesse Rockford moved to Nashville with a guitar and dream. He was looking for a record deal. Instead, he found was a girl worth writing songs about. The only problem – Celia is the only girl in town who’s off limits.

The more their relationship heats up, the higher the stakes should their secret come out. They’ll need to figure out fast if their chemistry between the sheets is something that’s worth risking everything for.

Deep in the Tennessee mountains Celia must take a walk down memory lane to find out if history will repeat itself or if her and Jesse have what it takes to find their way back to each other.

Review: Abducted by K.I. Lynn

Length: 259 pages

Published: May 5, 2020

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: purchased but it’s available with kindle unlimited

Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection!

The mafia never lets you go.

I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.

I’m in his territory. His prison.

The beast.

A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.

The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.

Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.

Not even me.

My thoughts 💭

This was an interesting read. Domenico and Ella/Ari were cute. He’s the beast and she’s the beauty. She doesn’t mind being in a cage as long as it’s with him. They complimented each other perfectly. They also had a lot of secrets and some stuff could’ve been avoided had they given each other all the facts instead of half. I liked the book.

New Release! Essence Of Fear by Bethany-Kris

ESSENCE OF FEAR

by Bethany-KrisA Boykov Bratva NovelPublication Date: June 22, 2020Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

The allure of fear is learning to love it.

Viktoria Boykov has heard it all—cold they call her. The spoiled bratva princess. She knows very well what people say when her back is turned. She doesn’t mind; let them talk. It’s better for people to assume what they want about her than for them to know the truth … until him.

Pavel Kotov knows what people say—death they call him. The Boykov dog. He’s heard all the whispers locked away in the cells of the Compound. As the reaper for the bratva, his life owned by someone else, he knows what they say doesn’t matter. His life has never mattered … until her.

He’s terrifying.

She’s terrified.

Viktoria only wants to keep running from her past. Pavel doesn’t have a life to run from. Freedom is the one thing they both crave—for entirely different reasons. But this life is vicious, and scars like the ones they wear will never fade.

Together, they could have everything.

Or are they just pawns to a bigger game?

*

Note: Essence of Fear is a Boykov Bratva standalone.

“What is the card for?” she asked.

Pav hummed under his breath and eyed her from the side. “A party to celebrate something beautiful.”

“So, you really do need a generic card?”

“I suppose.”

It took her all of three seconds to find a generic card with the usual congratulations stamped on the front, and the usual platitudes on the inside. She grabbed the matching envelop, and handed it over to Pav, too. He took them with the same smile as before.

“There you are.”

She turned to walk away, but it was his hand quickly curving around her wrist that stopped her. She froze all over, and a small tremor worked its way through her sinew. Air sucked fast and sharp into her lungs.

At the same time, she enjoyed the warmth of his palm against his skin. She liked the way his fingers tightened against her skin, and the pressure of his fingertips pressing into her racing pulse point. There was no way to hide the way his touch both terrified her and confused her.

Excited her.

Viktoria looked back at Pav but said nothing.

He quirked a brow. “I was going to say thank you.”

She nodded. “You don’t have to.”

Now, let me go.

The words came out in her mind, but not out of her mouth. She wanted to say them, and she didn’t want to say them at the same time.

How strange …

Da. I was going to say it, but now I want to say something else.”

Viktoria wet her bottom lip, muttering, “So, say whatever it is, then.”

“You’re still scared of me?”

She blinked.

Her mouth worked, though.

“Yes,” she whispered.

Review: Quarantine & Chill by Kenya Wright

Length: 403 pages

Published: June 13, 2020

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Bestselling author Kenya Wright returns with a standalone multicultural forced proximity romance that’s a beautiful escape with a huge happy ending.

News of the coronavirus hit New York City, and LA-native Jade is stuck dog sitting in her best friend’s Brooklyn apartment. Her bestie Zora is on her honeymoon in the Maldives, but may now be stuck there too. The island has canceled all flights. Only God knows when Zora will return, and Jade can fly back to LA.

Then, Zora’s brother Kamal shows up with his bags and proclaims that he is temporarily moving in. Which is odd because he has his own luxury condo in Manhattan. Something clearly happened with him and his girlfriend.

As the global pandemic ravages the world, Kamal and Jade become corona roommates in Zora’s one-bedroom apartment. Each day brings unique challenges for the pair while they navigate the new normal. Although dealing with bumps in the road, they quickly figure out that as long as they have one another, they can handle anything. Plus, there’s many steamy ways to pass the time.

No cheating. Lots of sex and funny moments. Some drama. Plenty of erotic illustrations.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this quarantine romance! It was amazing. I loved Jade and Kamal. They end up quarantining together and trying to resist the pull between them but once Kamal turns on the charm Jade didn’t stand a chance. I definitely recommend reading this!
