Excerpt
Nate stands
near the edge of the bathroom, facing the window, head down between his
shoulders, hands firmly planted on the windowsill, fingers sprawled but
crooked, as if he’s trying to crack his nails against the stone. A picture I
could paint in a heartbeat.
“I know
you’re there,” he says, his voice gravelly, painful. As though he’s wounded and
ready to lash out.
I should
run and hide. Take my pride and stride while I still own it. He could strip me
bare of everything I am and throw me to the masses to be ridiculed. He’s Falcon
Elite’s star athlete; a guy with a promise of a bright future. A person with so
much baggage you don’t dare touch them.
But I do.

My hand has
already reached for him and grazed his shoulder.
He
immediately turns around.
I take a
few steps back.
“Are you
stalking
me now?” he growls,
snorting. “Pathetic.”
He
breathes, walks, and talks like a monster. A man obsessed with one thing and
one thing only. Me.
“I’m not.
You started it,” I reply, still stepping back until I’m backed into a corner of
the toilets with no escape. He’s already blocked the door with his huge frame.
The only way out is by passing him. Shit.
He leans in
and traps me between him and the wall. “Why did you follow me?”
My heart
beats in my throat and I swallow away the lump in my throat.
“I … wanted
to know.”
“What? How
a guy like me can stoop to that level? Why I even try? If I’ll give up?” He
looks into my eyes like he’s trying to search for the truth but I don’t have it
for him.
“Tell me,”
he says.
“Why you
said you thought my painting was beautiful.” It sputters out of my mouth before
I realize it.
I don’t
mean to be so forthcoming, but when he looks at me like that with those
penetrating eyes it just happens. And something about the way he clenches his
jaw and then bites his lip undoes me.
“Because
it’s the truth,” he says with such a serious face that I find it hard not to
believe him.
He snorts.
“But you’ll obviously think that’s a lie.”
“No,” I
respond.
His eyes
narrow. He brings one hand to his face and rubs his jaw. “Liar.”
The silence
is overpowering. Seconds feel like minutes as his breath slows, but I can feel
every one of them prickling on my skin.
“Is this
really all about the pictures?” I ask.
He cocks
his head, and leans in even further until his breath is against the side of my
cheek and my whole body is covered in goose bumps. “That’s for me to know and
for you to find out.”
A gasp
escapes my mouth when his lips briefly brush past my ear.
“Tell me …
are you scared of me?” he whispers.
I want to
answer, but my throat feels numb and my head dizzy.
When our
eyes connect, the tension is like lightning electrifying me from the inside
out. This can’t be happening, it
can’t
be that … I can’t
want this.
A devious,
sexy smirk appears on his face. “Thought so.”
Then he turns
around and walks out, leaving me out of breath … and with my heart lost to a
boy I shouldn’t ever crave.

Review: The Devil Who Would Be King by Betty Banks

Length:187 pages

Published: August 7,2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Scar:

I’m known as the Prince with the scar.

The bad boy royal.

You know, the one serving life for murder.

Until my parents, the King and Queen of Genvora, are killed.

And now they have no choice but to set me free.

I’m the devil who’s about to become King.

But before I take the throne, I have some business to attend to.

And I feel like taking my hot PR manager along for the ride.

Although— there’s something not quite right about her.

She doesn’t flinch when I kidnap her.

She doesn’t blink when my bullet skims her cheek.

No, I don’t trust her at all.

And I’m obsessed with finding out why.

Warning:

You might not want to fall in love with Scar, but he won’t give you a choice.

The Devil Who Would Be King is a (very, very) dark interracial romance. First in the series. Be prepared for a jaw-dropping cliffhanger!

My Thoughts 💭

This was a good read. Angel is trying to show her family she’s one of them and ready for more serious work. It kind of backfires when Scar is totally aware of her plans and they are falling for each other. They had some good chemistry. I enjoyed the book and wouldn’t mind reading what comes next for Angel and Scar.

Genre: Dark Romance

Warnings come with everything forbidden. Consequences follow every sordid action.


An illicit affair results in me becoming captive to the one man I dared to trust.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was an intriguing and dark read. Pierce and Willow were perfect for each other. Their crazy played very well together. This was an enjoyable read. The suspense, secrets and hot scenes had me hooked! I definitely recommend reading this thriller!

Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.

When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

You can find Natalie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Review: Untouchable by Sam Mariano

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length:541 pages

Synopsis

The bully isn’t supposed to win.

Senior year was off to a rough start: lube in my locker, panties on my front porch, unimaginative name-calling. See, I got a player suspended from the football team for harassing me, and in my small Texas town, you don’t mess with the football players—even if they mess with you first.

I didn’t care if it was an unpopular thing to do; I stood up for myself… and in doing so, opened Pandora’s Box.

I never dreamed I would attract the attention of locally worshipped star quarterback, Carter Mahoney. Never imagined his coveted attention would turn out to be such a nightmare. Beneath his carefully constructed façade lurks a monster, a predator looking for the perfect prey to play with. Now, since I’m the girl no one likes or believes, I guess I’m the perfect target for his dark games and twisted desires.

After surviving my first encounter with his casual depravity, all I really want is for Carter to leave me alone.

But all he seems to want is me.

Warning: This book is provocative. It is categorized as DARK ROMANCE for a reason. It will not be for everyone. If you are a reader with certain triggers or sensitivities common to the dark romance genre, please heed the author’s note at the beginning of this book.

My Thoughts 💭

This book was dark but I liked it. Carter and Zoey started out extremely rough but I was glad to see them get their happy ending. This was an interesting bully romance.

Review: Rage by K.A. Knight

Length:406 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

My husband killed me.

Then he screwed his way through the city, the only problem? I didn’t stay dead. It seems killing me woke something deep inside, something so dark and buried so deep I never knew it was there.

I don’t know what I am, I don’t really care. All I can think about is revenge, even as the monsters in the dark start to surround me. Their horns and black eyes, mouths filled with fangs claiming I am theirs.

My monsters will have to wait, he will regret the day he crossed me.

Are you scared of the dark? You should be.

*18+ Reverse Harem Romance. Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence. This is a dark book*

My Thoughts 💭

This book was interesting. I liked the storyline but some the crazy things Dawn says and does threw me off. Dawn was killed by her husband and comes back changed and ready for revenge. She has mates who heard her cry and is ready to help her with her plans. This was an interesting book and I’ll definitely be reading the next one.

Review: Red And The Wolves by Zoe Blake & Alta Hensley

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 198 pages

Synopsis

A Dark Reverse Harem Romance from USAT Bestselling Authors Zoe Blake & Alta Hensley 

This is no fairytale… 
As the Blood Moon rises, I’ve been chosen. 
Chosen to serve, to obey…to die…for no one survives their time with the Wolves. 
As I am dressed in the ceremonial Red Hood, all I can think of is escape. 
But there is no escape. 
The lives of my village depend on my submission to the accursed Wolves. 
There are five of them. 
Five men cursed to live as Wolves. 
Cursed for generations, forced to protect my village from the dark forces. 
But they demand a heavy price for their protection. Me. 
Five against one…against me alone. 
My only hope for survival is to tame the wolves…but submission is not in my nature. 

Warning: In our Fairytales, there is danger in the shadows, the beasts bite and no Heroine is truly safe. If dark tales of danger, forced attraction and multiple partners offend you then please do not purchase.

My Thoughts 💭

A dark paranormal fantasy. Red is the blood moon sacrifice and she’s terrified of being eaten by the wolves. The defiantly eat her just not in the way she’s been led to believe. Grimm, Helm, Rood, Canis and Beo have been cursed and betrayed by the elders. They’ve accepted their fate but Red comes along and she doesn’t accept how they’ve been treated. They are stern and mean but soften towards her a little. This was an ok dark fantasy.

Review: Mate by Trent Evans

Length: 197 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

She was offered as a sacrifice. He took her as his mate.

The moment her ship crash-landed, Selena Marks knew she was in way over her head, and that was before the natives of this planet took her captive, stripped her bare, and brought her deep into a sacred cave to be given as a sexual sacrifice to the godlike brute whose whims they serve.

Though Selena has an idea of what is in store for her, when her captor claims her it is far more intense than anything she could have imagined. Every attempt at defiance or escape ends with her pleading for mercy as her quivering body is punished and ravaged in the most shameful ways possible, but with each helpless, screaming climax, the truth becomes harder and harder to deny.

She is his mate, and soon she will beg for him to breed her.

Publisher’s Note: Mate includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book

My thoughts 💭

I liked this book. It was a hot dark sci-fi romance. I didn’t care for the name calling but getting over that I thought it was a pretty good read.
