Synopsis

Angel

He was the boss from hell. Overbearing, egotistical and rude. He ridiculed everything about me from how I dress, to my hair and even my plus size figure. I hate him. The only thing nice about that man was his outside appearance and damn was it nice to look at, everything else especially his personality was a throw away. Ready to hand in my two weeks notice, there’s a significant shift in his personality. That’s when I see that everything is not as it seems.

Channing

She was the employee from hell. Big ass, big legs and big breasts. She was downright sexy and I did everything I could too keep my attraction from showing. It was excruciatingly difficult, but I did it. It was all going so well, until one day she tried to leave me. I couldn’t have that. I needed her there. She was the bright spot in my life. My Angel. My everything. If she thought she could leave me then she had another thing coming, because she has no idea just how vital her presence is. I think it’s time I show her just how important she is to my sanity.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! Channing’s obsessed with Angel but hasn’t been the nicest to her. Angel is fed up and tries to resign but Channing won’t let her. He confesses his feeling but Angel is wary and rightfully so. They are cute together but Channing’s secrets come to light and Angel struggles with the deception. Their story had me hooked from beginning to end! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Synopsis

He’s a hero who needs saving…

Royal King is the motorcycle-riding rocker chick of the Curvy Girls Club, who stopped caring about what other people think long ago.

McKennon ‘The Mack’ Carter is a firefighter and fitness model, whose life revolves around trying to be perfect for everyone.

One night on a dark freeway, their lives collide. Left broken and near death, Mack only holds on because of the angel who stays by his side.

He built the perfect life for himself. The life everyone expected him to have. Now, with the loss of his leg, he has to figure out how to piece back together that life when he’s no longer perfect.

The friendship formed during tragedy begins to grow into something more. But Mack has a secret that could push Royal away for good.

Royal and McKennon are up against more odds than most would be willing to deal with. But can the bond they made that night on a lonely stretch of highway be enough to hold them together? Or will it all come burning down?

The Bravest Hero… The highly anticipated follow-up to The Red Scot and 2nd book in the Curvy Girls Club series!

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed Royal and Mack’s story. Royal was able to break free of her family who wanted her to be anything other than herself. She ends up saving Mack’s life and finds he has a similar situation. They end up falling in love and it was adorable. I loved their chemistry. I also loved their friends!

Synopsis

Crayson and Nikita experience a traumatic event as a police officer and a black woman. It was not good, it went viral and seven years later they deal with the aftermath.

He was looking for atonement and he thought he found it, until seven years later. Nikita lands right in his lap, but she wants NOTHING to do with him. Neither of them believes in coincidences, but will they explore how the event has shaped them or pursue more of who they could be as a unit?

If you’re a Xyla Turner reader, you know that she pushes the envelope with the unlikeliest characters to press their way to love. Give it a try. You might be surprised.

BONUS: Read the first chapter of the upcoming novel, James: Across the Aisle Series.

My thoughts 💭

This was an interesting book. Crayson and Nikita were cute. Crayson didn’t care about how they first met just how they were going to go further. He knew what he wanted and was willing to go for it. Nikita wasn’t expecting their spark to be so strong and even though she was nervous she was all in. I enjoyed their story and definitely recommend!

Review: Duncan’s Pride by Xyla Turner

Length:136 pages

Published: October 5, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Portia:

I can handle it, I said.

Duncan can handle it, I said.

We can handle it, I said.

Shit, we can’t handle it. We said…

Duncan:

Portia had this undeniable belief that the two of us having a child would be a good thing. She had no evidence to confirm these suspicions, but I had first-hand experience. Therefore, I charted what having children would mean for my mental sanity. The percentage was low. It was especially low for my wife.

Also, I did not factor twins into the calculations.

Author’s Note: This is a novella and readers should read Book 1, Trent and must read Book 2: Duncan as those characters are heavily intertwined into Duncan’s Pride. Cameos by Mr. Vega and Faith, Trent and Bernie. Also, this book, specifically the Hero, is a bit different than a typical Xyla Turner book. It is IR, BWWM, and HEA, but Duncan is a different kind of perfect. I hope you give him another chance.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a sweet read! Duncan and Portia have twins and both of them have their own meltdowns. I still love Portia and Duncan! This was a really good addition to their story! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Synopsis

Giorgio Pozza is known by many names—beast, monster, grim reaper. Born in secret and hidden within the forests of Russia, he was trained to kill. Raised to kill. Death and destruction are virtually the only things he has ever known or cared for…until he meets Mo.

Mo is warm and affectionate. She’s also a contract killer. Disguised as an exotic dancer, she infiltrates a clandestine, underground Russian strip club in search of the target of her newest kill order—billionaire heir and prodigal son, Mischa Ivanovich.

While onstage, Mo scopes out the club and notices only three other bounty hunters present, and it’s three she knows she can easily overpower. At least, if they are foolish enough to get in her way. But when she gets close enough to Mischa to stick her blade into his neck, she realizes her mistake. There was one more, lurking in the shadows, and it’s the man whose name reverberates fear.

However, in those dark, secret tunnels beneath the city of Moscow, a fighter’s intensity turns into lust. A killer’s rage becomes raw passion. Mo’s solo mission turns into an unexpected, erotic weekend in a luxury hotel suite. And it is there, after her one-night stand with a killer, she begins to realize how much more there is to her dark knight, and how quickly she has gone from being his adversary…to being the target of his desire.

Hot, steamy romance, suspense and action all come together in this highly anticipated series standalone. Note: The Dark Knight can be read without first completing the other novels in the series. After this book, however, look for Gage: The Wolf. You’ll want to.

My Thoughts 💭

I absolutely loved Gio and Mo! Two assassins fall in love and it’s soooo adorable! I enjoyed this books twists and turns and action! I definitely recommend!

Review: Destined For The Lycan King by Marcelle Sixx

Synopsis

Quisha has always been an inner city kind of girl. All she wanted was her mother’s approval and to finish college so that she could go off and enjoy her life. That is of course before running into a salt and pepper-haired middle-aged man with eyes like warm honey, a demeanor of a king, and money that could make anyone else she thought was wealthy tuck their wallets in shame.

Josiah lost his wife nearly twenty years before meeting this chocolate enchantress, and something happens to him. Something that makes him quiver inside and want to do more than call out to her. However, with his responsibilities as King of Lycanthropes, trying to get close to a young woman that’s beneath him won’t be easy. His erotic dreams and valet deem it possible for Quisha to be his. With a sporadic son, deceit within the empire, and his own guilty conscience getting the better of him, obtaining Quisha to make her his queen seems impossible.

My Thoughts 💭

This was an okay read for me. The main characters chemistry was odd for me. The drama unfolding before the cliffhanger was interesting.

I’m not too sure I would read the next book…I don’t want to say the story didn’t flow well but it had its moments where I wasn’t sure I’d finish the book.
