Review: Omega Academy by Lily Archer!

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 338 pages

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Release Date: July 31, 2019

Synopsis

Drawing, my online clan, and planning my escape from my mother–these are priorities. Or, at least they were, until three huge alien males came to abduct me and take me to their planet. But it’s not just a simple process of probing and then releasing me back to Earth. All those movies are lies. These three males keep me. And I’m suddenly a cadet at an Omega Academy where I’m supposed to learn how to serve the Gretar Fleet. None of this makes any sense to begin with, nevermind the three males I can’t seem to avoid. But they say we have a connection, that we’re a circle, whatever that means. And my body seems to agree, because anytime they’re near, I can’t seem to think of anything except Kyte’s horns, Jeren’s smirk, and Ceredes’s long, hard … sword. Focusing on class is almost impossible, and the Omega Academy isn’t for the faint of heart. I have to learn who my enemies are, how to make friends, and how I fit with the three males I can’t stop thinking about. All doable, right? No. Not right, especially when I discover the fleet has other plans for me. The bond with my three males may be the only thing that can keep me safe, but that means we need to consummate our circle. Yeah, you read that right, consummate. Deep. Breaths.

Lily’s Note: Omega Academy is a full-length novel and the first book of the Omega Academy trilogy

My Thoughts 💭

This was an amazing story and I can’t wait until the next book. Lana is taken from Earth and she believes it’s a mistake but 3 Alphas are sure it isn’t because she is theirs. They were so cute and I loved the chemistry between them. The drama and secrets started unraveling at the end and I’m left needing to know what happens next.

Synopsis

Elliot Allen has known nothing but loss in her life. Becoming an orphan twice over, she has no one and fills her lonely days living vicariously through the adventurous stories of love in the historical romance novels she adores. Little does she know that a trip to visit the Scandinavian lands once occupied by Vikings would catapult her back nearly one-thousand years in the past like a heroine in one of her favorite books.

Thorin is the newest chieftain of his clan after the unexpected death of his eldest brother. Used to life as the baby brother, he’s done nothing but chase skirts and glory in battle. Is he really ready to lead an entire village? And would anyone try to challenge his seat as the leader of the richest clan on Iceland?

Just as Thorin attempts to find his way as the chieftain, a mysterious woman with skin of bronze and hair as dark as night is dragged before him. Now as his captive, her beauty sets his blood on fire. Her spirit challenges him at every turn. And his weakness for her threatens his precarious place as chieftain.

Ellie’s fear of losing those she loves, jealousy and danger lurking around every corner, and being from two different worlds could rip them apart.

Will Ellie stay? Or will she be forced to return to her own time? 

Find out in the sweeping time travel romance, Bound Through Time: Past.

Warning: This novel contains adult content. 18+ only

My Thoughts 💭

This was a wonderfully written historical romance! I absolutely loved Ellie and Thorin’s story. Ellie is thrown back in time where a hot Viking has her chained to his wall. Their chemistry is amazing. Ellie fears her love is cursed and Thorin doesn’t care if it is he just wants her to feel for him what he feels for her. This book gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings and I loved it. I definitely recommend this!

CORRADO

by Bethany-Kris
Guzzi Duet Legacy, #1
Publication Date: July 8, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

LIVE! LIVE! LIVE!

SYNOPSIS:

The son of a prominent Cosa Nostra Don, Corrado Guzzi’s life should have been all mapped out. He would be what every other Guzzi man was, too—made, mafia. It’s their way. But when given another choice, the chance to be something more, he takes it. Even if it comes with strings.

It’s there that he might find where he belongs, and Alessio Sorrento. The man who could change his whole life.

This love thing? It should have been easy, but they made it hard. Nothing about a relationship like theirs is simple. Dictated by rules, weighed down with things left unsaid, and already hanging by a frayed thread.

This is what love looks like before, and after.
Before she came along.
And after she was there.

It takes one woman to change everything.

Ginevra Calabrese wasn’t ready for this—for them.

So, what happens now?

*

NOTE: Corrado (book one) and Alessio (book two) are a duet within The Guzzi Legacy series, and should be read in order. All other titles in the series are standalone. This is NOT a love triangle.

EXCLUSIVE RELEASE EXCERPT

CORRADO by Bethany-Kris

Ginevra wiped away the one tear that escaped the corner of her eye as the elevator came to a stop on the highest floor. It opened to the hallway leading to the penthouse. She took another quick, deep breath; she had her weak moment in private, and now it was done.

Right?

Yep.

She decided.

Soon—surely—she would be back home in New York with her sisters. Back where she belonged, and far away from a complicated man, and whatever mess he had dragged her into here. That’s what would happen.

Ginevra unlocked the penthouse and opened the door to the dark entry. She couldn’t remember if Corrado had turned off the lights when they left, or not. Probably, though. Kicking off the heels and pulling down the wet straps of the dress around her arms, she tried to remember where the light switch was for the damn entry.

Then, the lights came on.

All at once.

She spun around fast, letting go of the straps of her dress as she froze in place at the sight of a stranger leaning against the wall at the very end of the hallway. A man, actually. His shaggy, dark hair hung over his eyes, and yet even through the dark strands, she could still see the stormy blue eyeing her from the side.

His lips, the lower fuller than the top, stayed affixed in a grim line as he chewed on something in his mouth—gum, maybe? Her gaze traveled over the golden hoops in his nose, his steel cut jaw line, and the few days’ worth of facial hair covering his cheeks and throat. Even under the leather jacket he wore, and the black jeans that molded to his thighs and ass, she could plainly see he was fit by the way the material of his white T-shirt stretched across the bands of muscle that made up his chest.

He leaned against the wall like he didn’t have a care in the world, his black, scuffed combat boots hooked one over the other, despite the fact she could clearly see the tension wrapping his body. Like he was forcing himself to stay right there, and not come any closer.

My God.

He was devastating.

That was the first and only word to come to her mind.

Devastating.

A lot like Corrado, really. That first look at him had made her silent, and took away her breath, too. This was no different.

Except she didn’t know this man, and why in the hell was he here?

“Who are you?” she asked, her voice faint.

The man smiled.

Just a ghost of one, though.

He lifted his head a bit, giving her a better view of the planes that made up his handsome face, and the war that raged in his stare. “Alessio Sorrento—I like Les, though.”

Les.

That text …

“But it ain’t about me, is it?” Alessio asked, his voice a deep bass that came off both edgy and dark. “Lately, it’s been all about you, Ginevra.”

How did he know her name?

She wondered …

No one had said either way—man or woman, they didn’t say who the other person was for Corrado. She hadn’t assumed, but a part of her just figured it was a woman because that was the default. Not that she cared either way who someone loved or fucked behind closed doors. That was their business, and as long as people were happy, what did it matter?

But now, staring at this man, and the way he looked at her like he was both curious, but he wished she would drop dead on the fucking spot, too, made her think …

This was him.

This man was Corrado’s … person. They were a them before Ginevra ever came into the picture, clearly. Those shoes with different sizes on the rack when she first arrived at the penthouse; the different style jackets, like they belonged to entirely different personalities; the offhanded remarks Corrado made without realizing it—and we use it, he’d said—and then ignored when she questioned him; or even his hesitations when he nearly slipped up like telling her the master bedroom was his, but he’d almost said something different.

She knew now.

It meant these two men had been a thing for a while. She was in the middle. He came before her. She understood what she had missed.

It hurt worse because of it.

“Yeah, it’s been all about you, huh?” Alessio smirked, adding lower, “And I’m here to find out why that is.”

Coming soon: Guarding Her Heart by Adore Ian

TITLE: Guarding Her Heart (Braxton Arcade Book Two)

AUTHOR: Adore Ian

BLURB: She moved into his house… then into his heart.

Elle Lee is on the run—hiding from her ex and his family. After secretly moving to the other side of the country, she wants nothing more than to stay shielded behind the carefully constructed armor that’s kept her, and her secrets, safe all these years.

But when she befriends Conor—the strong, quiet guard who works security for the mysterious Alice Braxton—she finds herself wanting to step out from behind her armor and experience life again.

Conor Kahele is a protector—always has been, always will be. So when timid Elle gets a job at the Braxton Arcade, he can’t help but watch out for her. They become fast friends and when Elle finds herself with little money and no place to live, Conor is unable to stop himself from asking her to move in.

Platonically, of course.

But friendship goes out the window the more they learn about one another, and soon Conor finds himself agreeing to take Elle’s virginity. What neither agreed to was giving the other their heart.

While people from Elle’s past hunt her, demons from Conor’s past haunt him. If he can guard her heart, Conor just might save them both. But if he fails, if he goes too far, he might become the very thing that stalks them.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Adore Ian grew up in a mixed race family in Hawaii and has loved steamy romance novels ever since finding a Harper paperback discarded on the sidewalk when she was a kid. She’s a proud dyslexic, an intersectional feminist-in-progress, and a lover of standard poodles. She lives with her manfriend on the east coast where she spends too much time bunny watching and not enough time writing. She believes the ingredients to good romance are too much smut, quality fluff and angst, and a dash of guerrilla sex ed. Her novels are best enjoyed with a slice of pizza and an ice cold beer.

Release Blitz/ARC Review: Wreck My World By Victoria Ashley!!

Title: Wreck My World
Author: Victoria Ashley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2019
Blurb
“The feeling I
have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me
forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”
For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been
off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.
After his little disappearing act three years ago, then
suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I
shouldn’t want anything to do with
him.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we
once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need
whenever he gets close.
He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as
a goodbye.
However, just like the first day he walked into our home,
I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe,
and I can’t stand it.
I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But
hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.
I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in
him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always
loved, even when he belonged to someone else.
Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come
to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of
me, more irresistible than ever.
The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person
capable of completely wrecking my world.
“I’m not leaving
until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every
dirty look. Every nasty word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding
from me.”
My Thoughts 💭
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book! This book kinda did wreck my world with all the feels! Dakota and Easton were meant to be and nothing was going to stop it! Their chemistry was amazing. This was a wonderfully written book and I definitely recommend!

Excerpt
She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching
in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is
almost enough to freeze my damn heart. “Don’t you dare follow me, Easton.
Turn back around and go inside.” With pained eyes, she points at the building
and screams. “GO!”
After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and
starts walking again to get away from me.
Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm
around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.
“You’re not driving home,” I say, while squeezing her waist
and pulling her against me. “I get that you want fast right now. That you need
a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. I’m the one that got you
addicted, but you’ve had too much to drink.”
“You don’t need to worry about what I do,” she growls out in
anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. “Dammit! Let
me go. I need to leave. I can’t be here.”
She’s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to
the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine.
“Give me your keys,” I growl, an inch away from her lips. “Don’t make me force
them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have
to, Kota.”
“Yeah, I don’t think my brother would like that much.” She
attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.
I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her
body. “Fight me all you want. I’ll win.”
“Fuck you, Easton!” Breathing heavily, she lays still and
fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes
meet mine, and she grins. “Fetch.” She tosses her keys across the parking lot
and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. “Now. Get. Off.”
I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her
face. It feels like forever since I’ve seen it.
Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty,
freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.
Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me
and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. “Just
leave me be. I don’t want to be anywhere near you. I’ll have Hope take me
home.”
“You really mean that?” I question with a tight jaw. “You
still hate me after three damn years?”
“How can I not?” she bites out, before jumping to her feet,
ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. “You tore my heart out. Now get
out of my way.”
I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and
disappears inside.
I’m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when
she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up
truck.
My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and
drive away.
You tore my heart out.

Those five words hurt like hell. She’s always been good at
making me feel.
