He was the Golden Boy until she tarnished him… 

I woke up to my roommate and best friend missing. In her place was a note on my bedside table that read: You can only find me with your eyes closed. 
No one thinks a note like that is meant for them. 
I knew it was meant for me, a clue, a way to seek Justice
Whoever left me that note was hoping I didn’t let my parent’s legacy die when they did. They wanted to see what kind of warfare I was capable of. 

Justice before starting a war with the man who wrote the rule book… 
I woke up every day to the same nonsensical bullshit that was my life. 
They say only bad things only happen after dark but I was the exception to every rule. I was bad and I happened whenever I wanted. 
I wanted someone to challenge me, put me in my place, force me to be better than war strategies and hold the audacity to traipse across enemy lines. 
A pink haired receptionist wasn’t my first choice for shaking my resolve. 
I can still smell her but I wanted to know if she’d taste like Victory.

Death before dishonor meant not losing to her…
EXCERPT

Answering the phone, I held onto my breath, when I heard an older woman’s voice come through. “So, you’re the guy responsible for her bad attitude.”
A nervous laugh erupted from me. I had never dated anyone long enough to give them the idea that I would want to speak to anyone important to them.
Besides her.
“I’m so glad you called me back…” The Clave mask slipped back into place, polishing all my stained edges in the hopes of impressing her.
“Didn’t give me much of a choice, since you’ve been calling me every day. Is there something I can help you with?” Her voice showed her age, but her mouth was a family heirloom passed down to Justice.
“I love Justice very much. I wanted to express this to you and prove that I deserve her hand in marriage.”
Laughter poured in from the other end of the phone. “You don’t take no for an answer, do you? If she wanted to marry you, I don’t think she would have evacuated LA like a natural disaster was headed her way.”
“Respectfully, no. I don’t lose gracefully.”
“Go on. I’m gonna need to hear you express those feelings,” she said, but not with an iron fist. Her voice sounded tired and worried for Justice.
“Okay… I’m not a great person, but I’m a better person because of her. I want to be good enough to deserve her.”
“Oh, honey, she wasn’t always a good person either and don’t you let her forget it. Wicked girls like her can’t forget to be humble…”

COVER 
BLURB 

At one time you were my reason to breathe,

So immersed in our love, I’m forbidden to leave.

What was once so innocent, we infected with lies,

Sucked deep into the darkness, I can no longer rise.

Troubled souls we are, but I cannot break away,

So loyal to you, I choose to stay.

But I’m harbouring a secret that will tear us apart,

My feelings so strong, I keep following my heart.

One day my betrayal will be revealed,

And that day grows closer with each lie concealed.

I know you will kill whoever gets in your way,

And for that reason alone, I should never stay.

My body is yours, but it will never be enough,

Forever trapped I am in our tainted love.

Warning: This book is filled with triggers. However, if that little imp inside you still wants to read it, then 1-click that bitch, put your feet up with a glass of wine (cos you’re going to need at least one), and enjoy this helluva ride!

Vegas is where good people go to sin. Reno is where the bad ones go.

Amidst the drugs, weapons, and trafficking, a murder-for-hire market has emerged. And my motorcycle club is right in the thick of it.

If you can pay, we have a million different ways to solve your problem. You want someone to vanish without a trace? The Great Basin Desert is almost two hundred thousand square miles of “nobody will ever find you.” You want to make a statement? We’ve been known to hang bodies from the Reno Arch.

That is until we’re hired to locate and kill a group threatening biological warfare by exposing our city to a deadly virus they stole. It’s the big payday we need. But in order to take the job, we have to also agree to protect the spoiled brat who saw everything.

Small. Frail. Innocent. Frightened. I made her my little birdie, but she always wants to fly away. Too bad for her I’ve clipped her wings and locked her in my cage.

⁣⁣

Only, it wasn’t supposed to start like this.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

I wasn’t supposed to go to that party.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

He wasn’t supposed to notice me.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

The hot jock with the trust fund and chip on his shoulder.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

My ex-boyfriend’s brother.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Noah Tedesco is so far out of my league he might as well be playing a different game.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Now that I’m on his radar, my life will never be the same.⁣⁣

My thoughts 💭

This book was real dark at times so heed the warnings! But I did really enjoy this book. Noah and Truly were both messed up in the head but Noah being a jerk and keeping secrets pushes them on a journey of letting go of past traumas and becoming better. They were good together even with Noah’s obsessions and all. He was all about Truly even if he had not so great ways of showing it or getting what he wanted. This was a good read o definitely recommend if you’re into dark romance!

Review: Skeleton King by Charity B.

Length: 366 pages

Published: June 8, 2020

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

In this town, I’m free from shame

A place where everyone knows my name

Glamorizing corpses to feed a need

That’s why they call me Skeleton King

They all worship me, but they don’t know the real me

All they see is my painted face

Truth is, I’m terrified, all the hope inside me died

Death and cold will forever be my morbid fate

Then she showed me something more

Somehow stealing deaths allure

Trigger Warning: This book contains many triggers and this warning should be taken seriously. The sexual and graphically depicted scenes in this novel are not for the squeamish and will be disturbing for some readers.

My thoughts 💭

This was a dark but addictive retelling of The Night Before Christmas. I just had to know how it ended lol! Heed the trigger warnings! Sarah and the Skeleton King(John) have both been through hell. John with his abusive mother and Sarah with her abusive kidnapper. They both are interested in each other and finally end up together after a little bloodshed. I enjoyed their story.

Release Blitz: Counts Of Eight by Brynn Ford


Title: Counts of Eight 
Author: Brynn Ford 
Series: The Four Families #1
Genre: Dark Romance





All of my choices had been stripped from me except for one. Dance or die.

Three years ago, I was taken, stolen away, far from the world I knew, far from civilization. I became a slave, forced to serve one of the four families with my talent.

I’d been abused, battered, tortured in isolation. My master brought me men, partners for performance, but they failed to live up to the high standard of dance my master required.

Until one day, he brought me a new man. A blond-haired, green-eyed, dreamy new man who had no idea what was coming.

The men before him had disappeared. I presumed they were dead. I couldn’t afford myself the luxury of hoping they’d made it out alive because that would give me hope that I might someday do the same.

Hope was a dangerous thing and this new man’s spirit still thrummed with that electric spark of lightness. I would be the woman to strip that hope from him piece by tiny piece until he had none left. Only then could I control him, use him. Only then could I even consider the possibility of a predictable, complacent survival in this nightmare life.

And until that time came, I would make the only choice I was given the liberty of making.

Dance or die.

CONTENT WARNING: This book contains explicit sexual content, violence, and mature themes including scenes where consent is not sought or given. The author in no way condones such heinous acts, but rather seeks to immerse the reader in the true horror of the characters’ experiences. This is your trigger warning – reader discretion is advised.

SERIES NOTE: “Counts of Eight” is book one of three in the Four Families trilogy. It is not a standalone and the books must be read in order. The author plans to release books one and two in 2020 and book three by early 2021. The cliffhanger ending may provoke you to fling this book at the wall. Best of luck to you, daring readers.








Brynn Ford is an author of romance in all of its beautiful and sensually taboo forms. She is a lover of the dark, twisted, and playful and strives to bring the unmentionable aspects of passionate romance into her stories.

Brynn resides in the Midwest with her husband and sons, whom she expects will someday be embarrassed by their mom’s books. When she isn’t obsessively writing, you may find her binge watching favorite shows while eating far too much junk food or fanatically reading, always seeking to lose herself in the emotional roller coaster of a damn good story.

She is quite the idealist, despite her fascination with the wicked and warped aspects of humanity. Some of her stories may run out of words before a happily ever after, but she’s a firm believer that her characters continue to live on outside the pages in the minds of her readers. Stories don’t end just because there aren’t anymore pages to turn.

Review: Angry God by L.J. Shen

Length: 384 pages

Published: February 15, 2020

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

From #1 Amazon Bestseller L.J. Shen comes a new, emotional standalone about first love, second chances, and overcoming breathtaking losses at a young age.

Vaughn Spencer.

They call him an angry god.

To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.

His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.

All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.

Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.

I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.

But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.

A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.

They say this place is haunted, and it is.

Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

Angry God is a stand-alone, DARK High School Romance. It deals with sensitive subjects some may find triggering.

My thoughts 💭

This book was absolutely amazing and gave me all the feels! It’s dark but it’s sooo good. Lenora and Vaughn are both crazy but they are perfect for each other! I definitely recommend reading this!
