Synopsis

Margaret’s mother split six months ago, leaving her in the clutches of her strip club owner stepfather. Now it’s her eighteenth birthday and he’s informed Margaret that she needs to start earning her keep. And that means giving her first lap dance to a Russian stranger named Lenin. When her mysterious first customer pays thousands above the asking price for her company, then shreds the leather couch with shaking hands to keep from touching her, Margaret begins to wonder if there’s more to the Russian than meets the eye.

And there is. So much more than she could ever imagine. Including the fact that he refuses to let his angel go, now that he’s found her. 

My Thoughts 💭

This insta-love quick read was soooo hot! This has some daddy play so if that offends you beware! Lenin is a hitman but gets distracted when he sees an angel,Margaret. Margaret is innocent but the power Lenin gives her makes her naughty side come out to play and Lenin is all for it. I absolutely loved this book!

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

How much is too much?

Five years—that was the deal. Renzo Zulla gave up five years of his life to repay a debt to an organization that only wanted to break him before they could make him. Their way, their rules. He doesn’t move without their okay, even if his latest job puts him right in front of her. But the five years are almost up, and he knows exactly where he’s going first.

Love doesn’t follow rules …

Heartbroken and alone—that’s how she survives. Lucia Marcello is alive, but a part of her still feels dead without him. She’s spent far too much time running away from her past and the pain she constantly holds tight because it’s easier than hating the people who caused it. But life has a way of bringing you back when your heart never will.

Love doesn’t fade …

But time means nothing, and forever might be only an illusion for them. Because where fate doesn’t step in, reality does. If hate is a game you play with your heart, and contempt is the game you play with your mind … where does that leave love?

Vendettas don’t care about love.

It’s in God’s hands now.

Note: CONTEMPT is the final book in a three-book

Trilogy following the same couple.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This trilogy is a must read for mafia romance lovers! It was everything! Renzo and Lucia’s are finally reunited and all the feels are still there. They both are still upset with everyone but I’m glad they were able to get past their hurt and mend fences to be one happy family that made me cry happy tears! Renzo makes everything seem so simple. They’re still just Renzo and Lucia no matter what. Ride or die! I definitely recommend this wonderfully written story!

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

Lucia couldn’t breathe.

Oh, God.

She couldn’t fucking breathe.

She felt frozen on the side of the road. Standing just beyond the sidewalk, people blew behind her going in all directions. She could see people walking on the other side of the street, too. Going to somewhere, or coming from something. She didn’t know, but they all seemed to be moving in slow motion.

Her world had slowed.

Almost stopped.

Like her heart.

She was sure her manicured fingernails were digging crescent marks into her palms, but fuck, she couldn’t feel anything. Nothing but the beats of her heart. A thump-thump-thumping beat that felt like it was about to pulse its way right out of her chest, if it were possible.

She couldn’t hear anything, either. The city had seemed so loud to her that day. Almost two weeks in New York, and for whatever reason, the city came alive more than ever. And just like that, with a split second, it turned into nothing. No noise; nothing. There was only a rushing in her ears—her blood, she knew.

She had seen him.

Didn’t she?

She saw Renzo.

He was different, sure. Gone was the young man, and in his place was someone else who looked like him and stood like he used to. Gone was that leather jacket that he told her once he had won in a bare-knuckle boxing match. In its place was a new leather jacket full of zippers and opened so she could see the barest hint of ink peeking out at his throat. Strong features dusted with dark facial hair, and eyes so fucking expressive.

Those eyes hadn’t changed.

Even from all the way across the street, it had been his eyes that she noticed first.

Hadn’t it been him?

It had to be him.

Where had he gone?

Lucia felt like she had suddenly walked into the Twilight Zone, and absolutely nothing felt right or made sense. She knew that she probably looked like an idiot standing there on the side of the street staring across as though a ghost had just crossed her line of vision.

But that’s exactly what it felt like, too.

He was the fucking ghost.

A ghost from her past.

Sort of.

Renzo couldn’t be from her past when he had never left her mind, right? He still felt like a constant presence in her life every single day. He was never far from her thoughts. He was always in her heart, even though it felt empty, too.

God.

She couldn’t date because this man had ruined everything for her. Sex, men … love. All of it. She didn’t even try.

Her mind screamed move.

Her body didn’t.

She closed her eyes, and opened them again, looking away from the passing cab to stare across the street, only to find it was empty. Coming to visit Rose had been a last-minute decision—she kept in contact with Renzo’s younger sister just because she felt like it was the right thing to do. Sometimes, she didn’t call as often as she wanted to, and she certainly didn’t get to visit as much as she should, but Rose had never said anything one way or another.

And Diego …

That kid couldn’t wait to get on the phone with her. He could chat for hours about the most mundane things, but Lucia didn’t care. She would sit there and listen to him go on and on as long as he wanted her to listen.

She figured that since she was in the city, the least she could do was stop by. Especially as she still wasn’t sure when she was going back to Cali.

But she had not been expecting to see …

Well, had she even seen him?

It felt like her mind and heart had played a trick on her. It was as though she stepped out of that car, and saw what she wanted to see, and maybe … not what was there. Was that even possible?

Lucia didn’t know.

It felt like it.

Jesus.

But in her heart?

Her gut?

Her lungs?

That lost soul of hers?

It all said the same thing … she’d seen him.

She knew.

The parts of her that mattered—they knew.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Zoe, Taras and sweet Emma! I loved them. Zoe comes to the states to be Emma’s nanny. She becomes close with her charge and lists for her mafia boss employer. Taras tried to keep things casual but their true feelings come out and it’s so cute. Taras still has scars from his first failed marriage. Zoe helps him see he’s not as much of a devil as he thinks he is but only a little bit and she loves him anyway. I enjoyed this mafia romance and I definitely recommend it!

Excerpt
Tonight,
Zoe wasn’t wearing the halter-neck dress. She appeared in figure-hugging jeans
and a blue cotton blouse that set off the topaz in her beautiful irises. After
declining a glass of wine, she sat next to me, shooting me a look from under
her dark lashes.

Mrs K
arrived with our starter course, a fresh vegetable salad made with cucumbers,
tomatoes and onions. She served us and returned to the kitchen.

I swirled
the wine in my glass. “I’m sorry if I was a little abrupt when we said
goodnight yesterday.”

“Abrupt?
You were more than abrupt.” Her eyes flashed. “You were downright rude.”

“I’m not a
nice man. I don’t do ‘nice’
. I
can’t.”

“Why?”

Ever forthright.

“If I show
any weakness, I’ll be finished.” I lifted my fork and speared a tomato.

She took a
sip of water. “Being nice isn’t the same as being weak, I don’t think.”

“You are
right,
rybka. It isn’t.” I shook my
head. “I guess I’ve just gotten out of the habit.”

She chewed
some salad and swallowed. “Were you horrible to your wife? Is that why you got
divorced?”

“None of
your concern,” I snapped, slamming my hand down on the table. Dishes rattled
and the water in Zoe’s glass sloshed over the edge.

She shot me
a withering look. “There you go again, being a prick. I’m only trying to
understand you, Taras.”

Publication Date: February 4, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

Lucia Marcello is the good girl—or she used to be. The youngest mafia principessa of her family, she’s not the one who falls for the man from the wrong side of the tracks, and she certainly shouldn’t have run across the country with him.

She’ll leave everything behind for him …

Renzo Zulla is the bad guy—society and life labeled him that way. The only person left to take care of his siblings, he couldn’t afford the distraction of falling in love with a rich girl far beyond his league, and he definitely shouldn’t have her riding shotgun as he runs for his life.

He doesn’t want her anywhere else …

Love keeps them together.
Fear keeps them running.
Chaos follows them everywhere they go.

How long can they keep moving before someone finally catches up?

The cost of love is always high.
Never harbor it blindly.

Note: Harbor is book two in a three-book trilogy following the same couple.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lucia and Renzo’s story continues! They’re on the run and trying to find somewhere to settle but run into big problems! This book was filled with action, suspense, love and heartbreak! Lucia and Renzo just want to be together and her family didn’t care. Her dad still felt like he was right about Renzo but he’s finally proven wrong it’s at the cost of his daughter hating them! I am loving Lucia and Renzo’s story and I cant wait to read the next book! I definitely recommend this trilogy!

•Cover Reveal• Bennett Mafia by Tijan

SUMMARY:

There were always whispers about my roommate at Hillcrest Academy. 

 

The wealthiest of the wealthy sent their kids to our boarding school, and Brooke Bennett had been at the top, though I never quite knew why. She was fun and outgoing, but she kept quiet about her family. The only things she showed me were photographs of her brothers. 

 

I became fascinated with her second-oldest brother. Kai Bennett. 

 

He was the most of them all. Smoldering. Hypnotic. Alluring. 

Kai had eyes that pulled me in and a face that haunted my dreams. 

 

Then I met him. 

 

He came to our school with their father, and that’s when I learned what kind of family Brooke came from. They were mafia, and Brooke’s oldest brother was dead. Her father said accident, but Brooke said murder. 

 

Three months later, her father died, and Kai became the head of the Bennett Family. Brooke left Hillcrest for good, and that was the last time I saw her. 

 

Fourteen years later, I’m staring at her face on the television. Brooke is missing. 

 

Two days later, Kai Bennett kidnaps me.

TEASER: Excerpt From: Tijan. BENNETT MAFIA 

 

 

“I felt his pulse too. It was as fast as mine.

“You may hate me. You may loathe me.” His hand slid back from my neck and moved down agonizingly slowly, between my breasts to my stomach.

I gasped, and he slid his hand under my pajama shorts until they rested over my clit. I surged upward at his touch, my head falling back, everything in me starting to tremble.

One of his fingers dipped inside of me. “But you goddamn want me.” And with that, a second finger joined his first and he took hold of my tank, his mouth slamming down on mine.”

 

 

Book Review: Dirty Kisses by Kenya Wright!

Synopsis

I knew one thing. He was the boss.

He walked like one, like he owned the ground his feet stepped on. Like he owned the air that we all breathed in. Like he could eat up the universe, if he wanted to.

**

Someone killed Rumi, the Russian Mafia’s top washer in New York.

Kazimir, the head of the Bratva, has come to NY to find the murderer. They call him The Russian Lion, known for having over two hundred kills. By the age of twenty, the FBI placed him ten steps away from Usama Bin Laden on the Most Wanted List. To kill his washer begins a dark and deadly war.

Unfortunately, Emily falls on Kazimir’s radar. Her brother is suspected of being involved in the murder. To save her brother, she is forced to launder Kazimir’s money; but she’s a perfect fit for the job. Known as a con to others, called a hustler by many, she’s the best washer in Harlem, keeping low-key gangsters on their toes.

At first, Kazimir and Emily have a tricky arrangement based on fear and danger. Her working for him is like balancing on a tight rope. He’s a monster wrapped in a gorgeous package. Still, there’s an air of sensuality around him that makes her forget sometimes how terrifying he can be.

Sexual tension heats up between the two, but one violent night changes everything, pitting everyone against each other—Russians, Jamaicans…anyone in Harlem with a gun. Kazimir and Emily must somehow learn to trust each other before they end up being one of the dozens of dead bodies left on the streets of New York.

But there are hidden secrets and twists intertwined with Rumi’s murders. When the truth comes to light, Kazimir’s money won’t be the only thing that’s dirty. And, unfortunately, their rising attraction may not survive.

From the Erotica Bestselling Author of No Ordinary Love, Filthy Lies, and Power.

Steamy sex and mind-blowing suspense collide in this BWWM Romance of a Russian mafia boss and the one street smart woman he can’t control.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book! The drama, bratva, betrayal and darkness! I absolutely loved Kazimir and Emily’s chemistry! I was kinda freaked out about Emily’s darker side but I mean it’s nothing compared to Kaz being the Lion! Soon as I was done with his one I had to download the next one to find out how they’ll deal with the betrayal!
