Review: Stray by River Ramsey

Synopsis

Lions, tigers and jaguars are just the beginning of Ella’s problems…

As an unremarkable stray left out on the streets, Ella thought she’d finally found a family in the Hill pride. Instead, she found herself living as a glorified maid, serving the future King of the colony himself.

Axel is rude and careless at best. At worst? He’s downright cruel, and he seems to take personal delight in reminding Ella that she’ll never belong. Too bad her heart never got the memo.

Axel and his perfect girlfriend are all but destined to rule the colony, but when the Unveiling comes around, it’s Ella who’s chosen as the next Empress by the moon itself.

And the claws are out.

Now every tom in the colony is vying for Ella’s attention, including bad boy Axel, the current Empress’ gorgeous son Bishop, and a mysterious Academy professor named Sterling whose ice blue eyes are every bit as dangerous as his caustic wit.

Choosing between the three of them is hard enough, but an inconvenient heat has other ideas. Ella’s sure she’s living her own Cinderella story. She’s just not sure if she’s the princess or the mouse.

My thoughts 💭

This was a good start to the series. I just wish a little more would’ve happened before the cliffhanger. Ella is a stray who isn’t treated very well and she’s chosen to be the next Empress to the shock of most people. Ella is a sweetheart who’s just trying to make it through academy but jealous and scared folks are being kind of ridiculous. Ella is the next chosen Empress and everyone is going to treat her like a pariah…Axel is a selfish jerk but I liked Bishop and Sterling and wanted her to choose them but maybe next book.

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster, comes a dark, paranormal prison romance reverse harem standalone novel!

I’ve been wrongfully accused.
Sure, everyone sent to prison says that.
It’s true, though.
I’m not who they say I am.
Dark. Evil. An abomination. The worst of the worst.

They sent me to the deepest, most awful catacombs of Nightmare Penitentiary. It’s where they put all their secrets they don’t want anyone in the world—both human and paranormal—to know about. I’m left to be forgotten and waste away until the day I die.

And I’m not alone.

I’m there with others. Others who are worse than me.
Terrifying. Horrible. Monsters.
Four demons in particular who seem to wake from their evil slumber the moment I enter their presence.

They want me.
All four of them.

I’m not sure what they plan on doing once they get their hands on me.
But one thing’s for sure…

It won’t be good.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book! I adored Charis! She was thrown into unfortunate circumstances with no explanation but didn’t let that stop her from forming a harem. Rapa, Vole, Crim and Ulen were crazy about their woman and I loved it! This was a well written book and I definitely recommend!

Synopsis

He says I’m his fated mate.

I say I’m his fated enemy.

I was stripped of my royal title because of him. I was banished to a deserted island and left to die because of him.

The witch claims this is our destiny written in the magic of the flames and the waves of the sea. I choose my own destiny though. And I’ll drown in those cold waters than ever be bound to him.

Because he doesn’t need a fated fae mate. He needs a savior.

And I’d rather die than be either of those things for the Cruel King.

NOTE: The Cruel Fae King is a fiery, panty melting enemies to lovers tale intended for readers 18 and over. Fans of Holly Black, Sarah J Maas, and all things sexy fae will fall in lusty hate with the Cursed Kingdoms Series.

My thoughts 💭

Review: Rebels (Assassin’s Academy #1) by Everly Frost

Length:322 pages

Published: October 11, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Rebel or die. My choices are simple. I’ve been sent to Bloodwing Academy because I’m one of the magically repressed. I should have magical powers, but I don’t. Not yet. One day I’ll wake up and my powers will be out of my control. I’ll be a threat to everyone around me, but that doesn’t mean they should lock me up.

Especially with someone like Striker Draven. As heir to the Draven fortune, he thinks he can have whatever he wants. He wants to pull me apart, rip out my power, and take my heart with it.

That’s if I don’t rip his out first.

My name is Peyton Price. My freedom is going to come at a cost. Body and mind, I have to decide if I’m willing to pay it.

This is a full length, 100,000 word dark academy romance, the first in the Assassin’s Academy series. An enemies to lovers romance for fans of action and intrigue. Set in the Assassin’s Magic world.

**Recommended reading age is 17+ due to language and heat level.

My thoughts 💭

That ending definitely left me wanting more!! Peyton is fierce and I absolutely loved her! The magically repressed are treated horribly at the academy to try to force their magic out of them and then force them to become part of an army. Some students were able to help each other hide to keep each other safe. Then they all were able to rebel with Peyton and Draven leading the way! I wasn’t sure what to expect next and I can’t wait to read the next book!

Review: Ensnared by Sofia Daniel

Length: 366 pages

Published: November 14, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

“I have two weeks to protect myself from three horny, blackmailing vampires and their fangs.”

If I don’t obey them, the Stryx brothers will unleash my terrible secret.

A secret that will get me executed. Or worse.

Nero, Dante, and Raphael have trapped me right where they want:

Kneeling at their gorgeous feet, their unwilling slave.

They have my body, my obedience, and now they want my blood.

How long before I stop resisting their seductive games?

I must awaken my magic and fend them off before their kisses turn deadly.

Ensnared is book two of a reverse harem PNR academy bully romance series. It contains cursing, dark themes, and sexual situations.

My thoughts 💭

The Stryx brothers are still jerks for most of the book but they eventually get better. I actually started to like them. Alicia is strong and I adore her but she makes poor choices when feeling sympathy for people who didn’t care about her feelings at all! Helping Zariah out always comes back to bite Alicia on the a-&! I can’t wait to read the next book.

Blog Tour/ ARC Review: The Hunted by Bethany-Kris

THE HUNTED, a dark fairy tale retelling

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: January 6, 2020
Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal Elements, Fairy Tale, The Little Mermaid

SYNOPSIS

Let the hunt begin …

After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.

Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.

He should kill her.
Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.

Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.

And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.

*

In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed Arelle and Eryx story! Their chemistry was hot and I loved how they were together. This book grabbed my attention from beginning to end! The lies, betrayal, and secrets both on land and in the sea makes me need more! This was an interesting read and I definitely recommend it!
