Survive a plane crash. Get marooned on a deserted island with a dirty, damaged alpha-hole. What could be worse?


Alyona


They say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
I believe it.
Brash sure lives up to his nickname.
Impetuous and rude, the billionaire hotel developer can’t possibly offer me anything but a much-needed paycheck.
Except, everything changes when our plane crashes.
Not only do we have to face the dangers of this tropical island, we must also endure our growing attraction to each other.

Brash


The spoiled, self-entitled mafia princess isn’t all she appears.
Beautiful and alluring, Alyona also possesses an innocence that calls to something long buried.
That’s risky for a man like me and a woman like her.
I’m a dirty bastard at the best of times, and this isn’t the best of times.
The perils we face are pushing us together.
And keeping things professional is no longer an option once I’m set on making her mine.
We’ve survived a plane crash, but can we survive the island with our hearts intact?





The current was strong and pulling us away from the wreckage. I kept my arm around Aly, lifting her face. I creased my forehead, trying to work out our flight path. Where the fuck were we? 
An ice-cold shard of panic pierced the pit of my stomach. I tried to ignore it. Fucking impossible. For the first time in my life since I was a child, events had overtaken me. Were out of my control. And there wasn’t a damn thing I could do other than try and survive. 
Aly moaned and I whispered, “I’m here. You’re safe.” 
She shivered and I held her close to share my body heat. Not that there was much of that. I was chilled to the bone. 
I looked around again. 
We were surrounded by nothing but rolling waves.  
Stay calm. I repeated the words to myself like a mantra. 
Hours passed, it seemed, although I wasn’t sure. I felt completely disoriented. 
Aly had passed out again; I kept checking her pulse. My eyelids grew heavy and I wanted to doze off, but we’d be separated. 
The sound of splashing.  
A pod of dolphins had arrived, eyes flickering with curiosity.  
“Hey, guys,” I managed to rasp. “Come to rescue us?” I laughed at the absurdity of my question. 
With a wave of their tails, they left in obvious pursuit of some lunch. 
The current took us further and further away from where the plane had gone down.  
More splashing.  
Rhythmical this time.  
I swept my gaze around again and a slow smile of relief spread across my face. I let out a whoop. The sound I’d heard was the noise of waves hitting the barrier reef to an island. I could just see it in my peripheral vision. 
I kicked my feet so frantically my shoes came off. Using the arm not holding Aly, I swam hard, fighting the current that was sweeping us parallel to land. 
Kick, kick, kick. 
I spotted a break in the waves and managed to propel us through it into the calm waters of a lagoon. 
My lungs burning, I kept swimming until my feet touched the sandy bottom.  
With the last vestiges of my energy, I heaved Aly out of the water onto the shore.  
I turned her onto her side and tilted her head backwards. Then, totally wrung-out, I collapsed next to her.

Blog Tour/ ARC Review: Dirty Pool By Bethany-Kris!

DIRTY POOL

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed reading Michel and Gabbie’s story! They just wanted to be together no matter what was going on with their families and I loved it. Gabbie was a spitfire and I just adored her! Michel may not be a made man but he is just as cunning as they are and I was in awe of the chaos he was capable of. I definitely recommend this if you enjoy some forbidden love!

EXCLUSIVE RELEASE EXCERPT

“Here, duckies!”

Michel’s dark chuckles came close to her ear as his nose grazed the back of her neck. Gabbie had all she could do not to shiver from the feeling of his lips pressing to her skin with featherlight kisses.

“I don’t think they recognize being called duckies,” he murmured.

“Shut up.”

“I’m just saying they don’t speak human, Gabbie.”

She didn’t mind his teasing.

Much.

“Says the man who had a small bag of birdseed in his car because bread is bad for the ducks.”

His hands landed on her waist, and she loved the way his fingers dug into her sides. He squeezed, a silent warning for her to stop the teasing. She heard it loud and clear, not that it made much of a difference. If he could dish it, then the man would learn to take it.

That was Gabbie’s way.

“I told you, I jog here.”

“Yes, with birdseed for the duckies, apparently.”

“Because they quack at me when I pass, and I feel bad for them.”

“Mmhmm. Of course, you do.”

Michel let out a laugh. “You’re impossible.”

Gabbie winked at him over her shoulder as she pulled out a handful of birdseed. Michel wasn’t wrong—bread was terrible for ducks. It got stuck to the roof of their mouths, and if it did get in their bellies, it would swell up to make them think they were full when they weren’t. It was harder for them to digest, too.

She adored he had birdseed in his car to toss to the ducks when he jogged at the park. He wasn’t all bad, despite what people in her family liked to say about the Italians. How could someone be bad if they remembered to feed the ducks when they went jogging?

It was sweet, really.

“You must be getting hungry,” he said.

“A little.”

“You want to go—”

“Not yet.”

She was enjoying this.

The park, peaceful at almost midnight, was dark and quiet. There wasn’t a soul around, and the small pond was rarely ever this empty when she came to see it in the daytime.

“I like that you chose here for a date,” she said.

Michel rested his chin on her shoulder, and wrapped an arm tightly around her middle. “Oh, why is that?”

“Most guys would pick a club, or something. Dinner, and a show. The usual. I like this better. It’s just us, and we can talk.”

“I would have taken you for all that other shit, too, but it’s late.”

It was.

Most restaurants were closed, although she was sure they could find a hole-in-the-wall diner to eat at, if they really wanted to. Not that any of the food would be the kind of stuff she was supposed to eat. Michel probably knew that, too, and took it into consideration without telling her he was doing it.

She appreciated it.

Gabbie grinned. “All of that for a date, too?”

“Yeah, probably not. I wanted to be alone with you … can’t exactly do that when there’s other people around, can I?”

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

“What good would it do me to tell you to stay away from the lad, hmm?” her father demanded sharply. “I think I have said more than enough over the last several months since you’ve run around with the prick that it’s clear I don’t approve. But whatever it is, you’re determined to see it through, so I might as well let you get it out of your system now before reality comes to wake you up.”

“What does that even mean?”

Charles scrubbed a hand down his face. “You’ll learn in time. As I intend.”

“I—”

“And as for that Italian fecker,” her father continued, “he needs to pick a side, Gabbie. If he wants to entertain the Italians in the daytime, and then shift with my daughter in the shadows when no one is looking, then the man can’t be trusted, can he? A lad like that … his mind is too sharp, lass. They had to know what he was doing, and then he can decide what he really wants to do. I know where he comes from, and you have to watch him like it, too. I need him to know that I am aware of his choices, and he has others to consider now.”

“Are you giving him the ultimatum, then? Them, or us?”

Charles arched a brow. “It isn’t that complicated, sweetheart. You don’t have to understand when all I want you to do is follow along.”

Wasn’t it that complicated?

She thought so.

“Follow along with what?”

Charles waved a hand at her, and she knew what that meant without him telling her. A dismissal. He was done with their discussion, and she was quite aware how that worked with her father. Once he was done, he was finished. No amount of her prodding or pressing would get more from him.

“I have men to deal with,” he told her. “And you haven’t checked your sugars since this afternoon. Go do that now.”

“My sugars are fine!”

Do it.”

She wasn’t a child.

She still felt like it sometimes.

Charles gestured at the group of lads that had attended the meeting, too, and were now waiting in the hallway just beyond Gabbie. Without waiting for her to really move out of their way, they pressed past her in the tight quarters, not even bothering to excuse themselves or pass her a second glance.

She wasn’t important.

Dismissed.

“Da—”

“Go, but not too far because I expect to speak with you again later,” her father ordered one last time. Then, to the men in the office, he added, “They never intended to settle, lads. That much is clear. We won’t act … yet. We’ll wait and see what they do first, aye, and then we’ll make the hard choices.”

Charles shut the door in Gabbie’s face, essentially leaving her alone in the hallway. It was amazing to her how she could feel so many things all at once. Anger warred with her disbelief and astonishment. Panic swelled in her heart, swirling with anxiety and sadness.

Did it really have to be like this?

What did that mean for her?

For Michel?

For them?

She didn’t know, and she didn’t like it.

The Winter Court By Amelia Hutchins!

Length: 351 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: purchased

Synopsis

Icelyn was given to the Horde to pay a tithe owed to them by her court. She had no plan of letting them claim her or enter her court. One arrow should have ended it, only it didn’t stop anything.

Instead, she’s now prisoner to the broody, cocky, self-absorbed prince that makes her want things she’s never thought possible. Will she be able to resist him and save her court from the horrors that the Horde has planned? Sinjinn had a mission: Get Cailean to the Winter Court to claim his bride.

It should have been simple. Instead, he gets taken down by a wisp of a woman who stares at him through the clearest blue eyes he’s ever seen before. The taste of her lips sends his world teetering on devastation. She’s his prisoner, so why shouldn’t he claim her as his?

Because she’s his brother’s bride.

Because it wasn’t complicated enough, right?

One arrow will change the destiny of three lives forever. Will they be able to escape the blood oath, or will he lose her to a brother who doesn’t even want her? New allies are being forged, new enemies emerge, and no one is safe within the realm of Faery anymore.

Not a reverse harem, or a love triangle.

Can be read as a stand alone

My thoughts 💭

Another amazing story by Amelia! I absolutely loved Icelyn and Sinjinn! The chemistry was amazing! I started off not really liking Sinjinn but his love for Icelyn had me loving him by the end! I can’t wait until the next book!
