Review: Duncan’s Pride by Xyla Turner

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!

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.

Synopsis

For as long as anyone could remember, the Drakos family and the Petrakis family have been at war. In recent years, after too much blood has been shed and Theodoros Petrakis’s oldest son, Andreas, loses his wife, both families decide to put an end to their war with an arranged marriage between Giannis Drakos’s oldest son, Aris, and Theodoros’s oldest daughter, Evangelia. With their upcoming engagement, the war between two powerful families will end, and the streets of Athens will finally be clear of blood.

Registered nurse Mia Williams cancels her engagement to her long-time fiancé, leaving her lost and unsure of what to do with her life until one night something happens that changes everything. When Mia comes across a man dying outside of her apartment, she must save this mysterious yet dangerous man who comes into her life unexpected, changing it forever. Mia still isn’t quite sure yet if it’s for the better or worse.

Aris comes to New York from Greece to handle some business on his father’s behalf when he is attacked and left for dead. Fortunately, a young woman finds him and saves his life, and Aris must find a way to repay her back the debt of saving his life. But Aris finds that when it comes down to Mia Williams, a debt doesn’t always have to be paid with blood and money, but sometimes with love and lust.

As Aris becomes more attached to the woman who saved his life, till the point that he doesn’t want to go back to the woman he has to get engaged to, Aris must make a choice. Either he must choose his new-found attraction with Mia or follow the word of his father and get engaged to Evangelia.

My Thoughts 💭

I loved this book! Aris is left for dead and Mia saves him. They grow close while he’s recovering but not close enough for Aris to tell her who he truly is. They fall for each other knowing that Aris has an arranged engagement that he’ll have to commit to when he goes home. When Mia is in danger Aris protects his woman at all costs. This was an interesting mafia romance and I definitely recommend!

Review: Walking The Dawg by Olivia Gaines!

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 115 pages

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Buster Padfoot terrorized the community and his owner Dawg wasn’t much better.

Kieran “Dawg” Dunagan wasn’t about to bring his guard dog to heel no matter how much the new neighbor stirred his blood.

Linda Blaine didn’t care for the high handed tactics of her muscled bound neighbor or his predatory pup. She did like the intense spark between them and she looked forward to teaching some manners to both man and beast.

It’s time to visit the new neighbors next door and watch Linda Walking the Dawg.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a cute and funny novella. Dawg is the neighborhood grump but Linda won’t take his or his dog’s mess. She brings them both to heel. Dawg kind of fights it at first but he knows what he wants and that’s his crazy neighbor and her chocolate cake.

Synopsis

Carter Strong

I yell at the referees because they tend to act like blind bats half of the time. I’m passionate, sure, but this new referee, has the audacity to throw me out of my own damn game. Who the f*ck does she think she is?

I own this league.

I could own her, if I wanted.

Sasha Chapman

My transfer to a new league was the perfect move for my career. Until I met, Coach Strong, the abrasive asshole who yelled at me and accused me of having my ponytail too tight to see. He had it coming. I didn’t mean for the media to go on a rampage about him, but when he accused me of being attracted to him, that was the last straw.

I needed to get away from him.

But he wouldn’t let me.

My Thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! Carter had to grow on me. He was hot tempered and kind of a jerk but he did get better when Sasha checked him! I liked Sasha she didn’t take Carter’s foolishness and she handled it well. I liked how they grew together. They had great chemistry and I loved their banter.
