Bitter Heat by Mia Knight review!

Length: 326 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Purchased

Synopsis

She was the wood. He was the flame. After this, they would be ash.

A cruel twist of fate leaves Jasmine Hennessy stranded in a remote cabin with her worst nightmare—her ex-husband, James Roth, who she hasn’t seen in five years. He isn’t acting like the man she married, but did she ever really know him?

One night together kicks off a series of events that threatens her freedom as Roth seeks vengeance on those who ruined him seven years ago. He’s determined to bring her back into the world she left behind where money is king, reputation is everything, and people will kill to keep their secrets.

Author’s Note: This is a dark romance novel with triggers and mature themes that may make some readers uncomfortable.

My Thoughts 💭

This book literally sucks you in and refuses to release you until you get to the end and cry because you have to wait for the second book. I kind of hate Roth and want to know why he keeps hurting Jasmine! It’s like he has an obsession and must have her no matter what. I need more of this story!

Blurb
It was supposed to be a game.

I Dare You.

We brought her in ’cause I wanted to play with her. 

Destroy her.

But plans change and she got caught in the cross fire. 

Then I did something far worse. I fell in love with her, but
she doesn’t know I still have secrets.
Ones that could rip us all apart. 

We’re sharks.

Raised to hunt and kill.

We take what we want without asking.

We’ve never needed permission, so I’m not about to start
now.
You think you know everything, but we’re about to do what we
do best and prove you wrong-I Promise You!

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I liked this book. I still absolutely love Cole and Austin! You get some of the sharks point of view in this one which has me very interested in getting Deke’s story! This book also answers the questions you were left with at the end of I Dare You. The secrets, lies and revenge are still intense as ever. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

My Thoughts 💭

I feel like I should’ve waited until all the books were out before starting since I’m sad I have to wait for the next book!😂 This book picks up where the first left off. Still very interesting! I want to know who this king beyond the mountains guy is! Taylor is starting to get used to Leander. She still wants to go home but the longer she’s with Leander the more unsure she becomes. After the group gets out of danger they walk right into more. Hopefully there’s some claiming in the next book!

For Nasir, former Special Ops military man and bodyguard, his new job seems like an easy-money gig: trail a Russian mobster’s runaway wife in Mexico, enjoy the sun, observe, and report.

Evalina escaped to the island getaway to live an untraceable life—as far away from the past as she can get. But Eva can’t ignore the dark, muscled stud who rescues her from a drug gang. He says he’s an ex-cop on vacation. When providence throws them together time and again, Eva thinks it’s all a beautiful coincidence. Now she’s giving in to a strange new sensation: trust.

But Naz has a mission to accomplish and a secret to keep. Eva has her share of secrets, too. And as the heat flares between them, Naz knows that trust could become the most dangerous impulse of all.

DB - Teaser 2 AN.jpg

Excerpt:

I turn to look at her. She’s framed in the doorway with the light bright behind her and her face in shadow, her hair a golden corona around her head. A band of tightness settles around my chest.

I take a step toward her. She takes a step back. I don’t know what she sees on my face, but her eyes are huge and her pulse is throbbing in the side of her neck.

When I take another step and she retreats again, I stop. “Are you afraid of me?”

She laughs shakily. “No.”

“Then why are you backing up?”

“I was hoping I’d be at the wall by now. I need it to hold me up. I’m so excited I think I might faint.”

The band around my chest grows tighter.

“Stay where you are,” I say, holding her gaze. The eye contact feels like a touch, like an electrical current running on a loop between us. It’s probably close to ninety degrees, but the skin on my arms raises in gooseflesh. As I take another step toward her, she flexes her hands open and draws a breath.

She says with quiet wonder, “I can feel my heartbeat in my fingertips.”

“I know. Me too.”

I advance another step. She’s an arm’s length away. I see it when she begins to tremble.

“This must be what a stroke feels like,” she whispers as I reach out and touch her face.

“Probably not this good.” I slide my hand into her hair, and she bites her lip.

When I move closer, she raises her hands and flattens them on my chest. I know she can feel how hard my heart is pounding. Her breathing is as erratic as mine.

“Oh God,” she says faintly. “I really hope this kiss you’re about to give me is as amazing as the pre-kiss. I think my panties just went up in flames.”

“Not a good idea to talk to me about your panties right now, sweetheart,” I murmur, brushing my lips over her jaw. “I’m barely in control as it is.”

I nuzzle my nose into the soft, sweet spot under her earlobe and drag in a breath scented of her skin. She shudders. I cradle her head in my hands as her fingers dig into my chest. I open my mouth over the pulse in her throat and she moans, low and soft, arching into me.

That little moan sets my entire body on fire.

With one hand cupped around the back of her head and the other around her jaw, I tilt her head back and fit my mouth to hers.

Her lips part. Our tongues touching is an electrical shock. She makes a soft, feminine noise in the back of her throat that makes me feel savage, like an animal.

We stand in the gloom and kiss, deep and slow, until the urge to push her against the wall, lift her skirt, and thrust deep inside her is a hot, heady pulse in my veins. She slides her arms up around my shoulders so her breasts press against my chest. I feel her nipples, two hard points in a lush expanse of skin, and groan into her mouth.

My dick is so hard it’s throbbing.

“I want you to kiss me everywhere,” she whispers, breaking away from my mouth but staying in my arms. She’s panting. Her eyes look glazed. “I want you to take off my clothes and kiss me everywhere like that. Promise me you will.”

I huff out a breath that’s part laugh and part groan. “So it measured up to the pre-kiss, huh?”

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book kind of broke my heart and put it back together then ripped it out with that cliffhanger! I need the next book ASAP! Eva and Naz’s banter was kind of hilarious. I loved their chemistry! I thought this was an enjoyable read with awesome characters! I definitely recommend this if you don’t mind cliffhangers. It left me totally wanting more!

Fae’s Captive by Lily Archer!

Length: 100 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

My college roommate is the worst. Cecile steals my food, brings guys over at all hours, and parties instead of studying. But those quirks pale in comparison to what she does next. She drugs me, and I wake up imprisoned in an alternate universe full of terrifying creatures. Now, the biggest and scariest creature of all–a fae king–believes I’m his mate. He’s freed me from the dungeon but keeps me close. So close, in fact, that I’m beginning to like his wintery gaze and ice-chiseled body. But secrets and villains lurk throughout this new world, and I don’t know if I’ll survive long enough to figure out how to get back home.

Author’s Note: Fae’s Captive is the first book in a series that will set your imagination–and other parts of you–on fire. Mind the cliff, but book 2 is already out.

My Thoughts 💭

Taylor’s horrible roommate drugs her and she ends up in the Fae world with knowledge of the Fae. Taylor meets Lenetia in the dungeons who gives her a brief rundown but Taylor isn’t accepting that she’s now a changeling and she now has a master. That master gives her a wake up call but she soon meets King Leander. Leander knows Taylor is his mate and they have a bit of trouble communicating since he’s forgotten her language and I thought that was cute! He wisks her away since there’s danger and tension between courts but she ends up in even more danger traveling to his court. This short but awesome novella has me totally hooked on Leander and Taylor’s story!

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Imagine searching your whole life for answers, and then finally finding them. A part of you is excited to know the truth. Another part of you is damaged, because you realize why it was so hard to learn answers.

Secrets aren’t usually very pretty.

In the midst of all of it, the four monsters I’ve gotten too attached to are about to be reunited with the one woman they all once loved so deeply that they sacrificed everything to have an eternity with her.

They said they hated Arion, but I never see hatred when they’re around him. I see frustration, resentment, anger, and pain, but never hatred.

They say they hate Idun, but until she returns, I won’t know how true that really is. All the pretty monsters don’t have simple emotions, because everyone has lived so long that it’s gotten entirely too complicated to feel anything too much.

The only way to figure out what happens next is to stop stalling and start doing, while silently hoping it doesn’t cost me everything I never knew I wanted…until it landed in my lap.

My life sucks so hard sometimes.

My Thoughts 💭

I’m really enjoying this series! I need the next book now! You get some questions answered and by the end you have more questions lol. Arion finally gets his turn! Arion is talking about remaining neutral which is frustrating. It makes you wonder what is going to happen when he’ll have to pick a side. How are we supposed to believe he’s falling for Violet when he says things like that? That just makes him look like he’s still in love with Idun.

I don’t like Marta…at all. She just seems manipulative and shady.

Ghost by Lyla Oweds review!

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

My abilities are growing every day. But thanks to my new friends, I know that I’m not insane.

Even so, there’s a darkness inside me. It’s been getting stronger. A reality that I’ve been trying to avoid.

Being near the boys draw it out. Being close to them also make me unafraid for the first time in my life.

I’ve never felt like this before, but at the same time, my mind has latched onto the feelings they evoke. Julian encourages me, Miles comforts me, Titus protects me, and Damen…

Damen gives me something to believe in.

We have days to solve this haunting, but my personal issues threaten to overwhelm me. With each passing day, it becomes more difficult to pretend to be normal.

And if I falter, for even a moment, then I could lose everything forever.

This is the second book in a multi-book slow burn reverse harem series. Be forewarned.

My Thoughts 💭

I’m enjoying this weird series! The further you get the more questions you have! Is Bianca their mate? Who started Bianca on the bogus pills and why? What is Julian’s mother hiding? Where is Finn? I need answers! Bianca is soooo naive and the guys are so cute with her. They don’t know what to do with themselves. This book is just as interesting as the first but the mysteries are killing me! Lol I need answers!
