Synopsis

Sunshine.

It’s a nickname I haven’t heard since I lived on Woodbury Lane, where the houses were pretty but the secrets? Deadly. It was a pet name known only to the Bullets. Rough, violent, and ruthless, they laid claim to the town — and my heart.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks—especially not four of them. But they were the only ones who understood that sometimes hell hides in plain sight.

I was the girl with all the conveniences a privileged upbringing could provide. The world only saw two loving parents and a pristine home life, but I knew the truth. And it was going to get me killed. So, I disappeared, from everyone and everything I’d ever known. I changed my name and my appearance, but the scars I carry, they’re still the same.

The Bullets are all grown up now, too — a crime boss, a pro fighter, a bounty hunter, and a federal agent. Life took them in different directions, but they once shared the bonds of a brotherhood forged under the harshest conditions. Together they were fearless. Brutal. Unstoppable.

I’m praying they can find that unity again. If I’m going to survive this, it’ll take everything they have. Because that’s the thing about running from the past.

Eventually, it catches up to you.

This box set contains the complete Bullets Trilogy.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! It was entertaining. Sunshine and the Bullets will do anything for each other and Sunshine definitely proves that theory after disappearing and leave the guys scrambling to find her. She runs away for them and they drag her back to them and demand answers. They go on a journey of near death experiences, acknowledging feelings, bringing down those who want them dead and living happily ever after. Their story had me hooked from beginning to end! I’m definitely interested in finding out what happened to Nix!

Synopsis

𝘏𝘈𝘝𝘖𝘊. 𝘋𝘌𝘊𝘌𝘐𝘛. 𝘗𝘙𝘐𝘝𝘐𝘓𝘌𝘎𝘌.

The elite come to play on the campus of Glass Heart Academy.

𝐏𝐚𝐥𝐦𝐞𝐫

My sister was their everything. I’m their nothing.

They waited three hundred and sixty-five days after her disappearance to acknowledge I’m alive.

Their wicked games should scare me.

Except they don’t know I’m not much different than her.

𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐤

Palmer Weston isn’t anything like her sister.

She’s sweet and naive. There are plenty of reasons why I should keep my distance.

Except where’s the fun in that.

I’m a boy who loves his toys and I’ve kept her on the shelf long enough.

It seems someone is determined on giving Palmer the same fate as her sister.

Problem is I’ve never been good at sharing.

{Glass Heart Savage is the first book in the Glass Heart Academy Series.}

My thoughts 💭

This was very suspenseful! Nothing makes sense and I can’t wait to read the next book! The guys bullying Palmer does get extreme but she’s stronger than they think. I enjoyed reading this book.

Synopsis

Captured and forced to marry Henrik, Megara vows never to forget his monstrous behavior… but her hatred for her husband doesn’t weaken her attraction to him.

Henrik chases his legacy with the ferocity and strength worthy of a God. He will not be deterred, and he will not fail. Nothing will stand in his way. Not even a wife.

But Henrik’s strength can not keep Megara’s beautiful soul from seeping into his heart. A choice is coming, between everything he ever wanted and the one thing he didn’t know he needed.

My thoughts 💭

This book started off interesting but fell off to me but I liked the end lol. Henrik wants to prove himself and be named a legitimate heir and sees Megara as his ticket to daddys approval. I was relieved when he finally got over that. I liked Megara, she had some fire… This book was ok but just wasn’t for me.

Review: The Devil In Apartment 13 by Tiana Laveen

Synopsis

Shahzad Haidar has been called many things… evil, horrid, ghastly, incredible, alarming. The latest label was the usage of the word, ‘Devil.’ However, Shahzad is none of those things – he is a Jinn. But not just any Jinn…

Shahzad is a slick urban genie who runs an empire. His company creates magic and grants wishes under the illusion of being merely for entertainment. However, for the right price, he can make true dreams and even ungodly nightmares come true. Having little interest in human lives other than for financial gain and amusement, he is shocked when an incident occurs that challenges his lackadaisical attitude towards hominids…

Vivian Carver believes her name is synonymous with bad luck. She’s a bartender living smack dab in the middle of NYC and has had it up to here with entitled tourists, an annoying roommate and just barely surviving. She’s forced to move into a cheaper apartment, and with it comes a seedy landlord, drippy faucets and a peculiar stranger in apartment 13.

Shahzad has pulled all the stops to get to know Ms. Vivian Carver, someone who in no shape, form or fashion understands her full potential… She is one of the most beautiful humans he’s ever seen, and he is determined to make her his mate for life. Shahzad however, doesn’t offer just three wishes — he is determined to give her so much more…

Can a black hearted jinn with the world in his palm truly fall in love?

Can a woman with the world on her shoulders see the beauty in a being that teeters the line of good and evil?

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book. Shahzad was all alpha male kind of a jerk but he loved his Vivian. Vivian’s light drew Shahzad and he decided he’d have her and have her he did. Vivian hasn’t had the best of luck but an enamored Jinn turns her luck around and becomes karma for those that have wronged his love. I thought it was an interesting read.

Synopsis

They think capturing me will help them win the war.

But they just made the biggest mistake of their lives.

As a summer fae princess and chief enforcer for the Mage Police, it’s my job to stop shifters dead in their tracks—emphasis on the dead part. And if one criminal slips through my fingers while I bag another, well, that’s not a good enough reason to demote me—in my opinion.

Determined to prove myself to the mages, I go after the worst criminal out there: The Shadow. But when that mission gets blown all to hell, I find myself a captive of three shifter warlords.

Being their prisoner shows me all about the darker side of the war. But the thing is… I’m not afraid of the dark.

Or them.

My thoughts 💭

I liked this book. Aubry is good at her job as chief enforcer but she’s drawn the attention of the shadow and his crew. She gets captured by them and finds that everything she’s been told may not be truth and these criminals may be her mates. Brodie accepts the mate bond and is determined to make her admit her feeling for him. He was a psychopath but I loved him! Easton and Aubry have a connection but Brodie doesn’t want to share…hopefully he gets over it soon. I don’t really know how to feel about Drake. He started opening up some but then there’s the mess he made by trying to stick to the plan. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Synopsis

I’m the monster who makes you fear the dark. I’m what goes bump in the night. Well, that’s what the legends say of my kind. I’m just a vampire who wants to be normal. To go to school, learn who I am, and fall in love.

Loving five guys who break my dead heart was not part of the plan.

I’m being hunted by a faceless monster and I’m changing into something I don’t recognize.

Returning back to the academy is the last thing I want to do, but it’s the safest place for me.

The guys are heating things up with me, blood is flowing, and class is back in session.

My thoughts 💭

I’m not sure how I feel about this book. All the good stuff started happening at the end. Dru forgave the guys very easily. Matthias’ feelings finally come to light. There’s some lying, scheming and pasts coming back to bite. I need the next book!

Review: Prize by Sara Fields

Synopsis

I was for sale, but he didn’t buy me. He just took me.

Exiled from Earth by a tyrannical government, I was meant to be sold for use on a distant world. But Vane doesn’t buy things. When he wants something, he takes it, and I was no different.

This alien brute didn’t just strip me, punish me, and claim me with his whole crew watching. He broke me, making me beg for mercy and then for far more shameful things. Perhaps he would’ve been gentle if I hadn’t defied him in front of his men, but I doubt it. He’s not the gentle type.

When he carried me aboard his ship naked, blushing, and sore, I thought I would be no more than a trophy to be shown off or a plaything to amuse him until he tired of me, but I was wrong.

He took me as a prize, but he’s keeping me as his mate.

My thoughts 💭

This book just wasn’t for me. I guess Nina and Vane are masochists and I couldn’t get into it with barely any affection. I prefer at least a little affection.

Synopsis

Kirian and I were just twelve years old when I pulled him from the icy waters of the creek behind my house. As he looked in my direction with unseeing lavender eyes, I quickly realized our age was just about the only thing we had in common. He spoke with an accent, he had pointy ears, and he was so beautiful it made my heart ache. Oh, and he claimed to be a fae prince cursed by witches who stole his sight.

I thought he was crazy from hypothermia. Turns out, he wasn’t, and for some reason he keeps coming back. But a day in my world is a year in his. Every time I see him, he’s older. Wiser. Hotter.

Over the past six years, I’ve tried not to fall in love with him because the terms of the curse are clear: If he doesn’t wait for his fated mate in all ways, including an innocent (or not-so-innocent) kiss, he’ll be blind forever.

So when Kirian kisses me and pulls me through the portal to his realm, I make it my mission to do some damage control. It’d be a whole lot easier if he wasn’t determined to marry me… And if someone wasn’t trying to murder me every step of the way.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! Kirian and Quinn were adorable. They’ve had feelings for each other since they were 12 and when the thought of not seeing each other anymore comes up they both get a little crazy. I loved how they loved each other! This was an interesting read with the love, betrayal, new friends and happy ever after. I can’t wait to read the next book!

She thinks she can hump and dump me. No damn way.

Griffin Phillips

I spent eighteen years in the Army, and nothing hit me as hard as this woman. The first time I saw her picture, I wanted to drop to my knees and worship at her feet. Fiona Cooper is thick and curvy the way I like my women. I don’t care that we’ve only talked online. She wants to be friends with benefits, but she’s already mine.

Fiona Cooper

After the year I’ve had, I’m ready for some fun. My friend is getting married in the same city where my online boy toy lives. Griffin Phillips is big all over and cut to perfection. I have plans to satisfy my craving for him, but this attraction between us will forever be strictly physical.

THICK CUT is an interracial erotic romance (BWWM) with a HEA. It is a part of the Lunchtime Chronicles series which can be read as standalone novels.

WARNING: This book is different from ALL previous Siera London books. THICK CUT contains explicit sex and graphic language.

My thoughts 💭

This was an enjoyable quick read. Fiona is in denial about what’s between her and Griffin. Griffin is sure he’s not letting his woman get away from him.

Review: Reaper’s Pack by Rhea Watson

Synopsis

One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows…

Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance—and it’s time for a promotion.

My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before. High death rates mean one busy reaper, and the only way to keep up is with a pack of hellhounds. Faithful. Strong. Merciless. Hellhound shifters are a reaper’s right hand in the field, shepherding and guarding souls until they can be reaped.

We get our pick of the litter from the best breeders in Hell, but for some reason, I’m drawn to the pack no one wants.

An alpha who refuses to yield.

A beta who doesn’t take me seriously.

A runt who flinches at every command.

I want them—even if they don’t want me.

Because the hunger in their eyes tells a different story. But the fact that they can’t decide whether to love me or hate me, fight me or screw me, is making our situation way too complicated.

Still, I refuse to give up. If this infuriatingly handsome trio can’t be trained, if we don’t pass the trials, they go back to a cage and a cruel demon master.

Yeah. Not happening.

Reapers and hellhounds are natural allies, and the sooner we secure our bond, the better, because as it turns out…

All our lives depend on it.

Reaper’s Pack is a standalone why-choose paranormal romance and is part of the ALL THE QUEEN’S MEN series. Each book in the series is a full-length standalone featuring layered heroes and a headstrong heroine who never has to settle for just one happily-ever-after. The books can be read in any order and are part of the same supernatural universe.

My thoughts 💭

This was an enjoyable read. Hazel has been promoted and she gets to pick her pack to help her reap. She connects with one of the “worse” packs that’s being offered. Knox, Gunnar and Declan have plans to escape service. But one by one they fall for the sweet reaper. Declan knows of Hazel’s importance to the pack almost immediately and it takes the other 2 a bit to catch up. There’s danger lurking, stubborn fated mates and a happy ending. I definitely recommend!
