Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2) ~ L.J. Shen


They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple. The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzes into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman.
But my clock is ticking. See, I’m not like the rest. I have an illness.
Sometimes I conquer it.
Sometimes it conquers me.
My white knight has finally arrived.
Hopefully, he isn’t too late.

This was a fantastic read!!!
The story was not what I was expecting.. but everything I wanted.. needed.

Rosie was a danger to herself in my opinion she lived her life as if there weren't going to be any consequences to her decisions - well only to herself really.. she definitely pissed me off more than a few times.. She was trying to be independent when she didn't have a pot to piss in.. did reference to all the sacrifices those around her that loved her made but really truly didn't acknowledge until it was almost too late..
I can see where she meant well but just her stubbornness wouldn't let her see past her diagnosis..

Dean "Ruckus" was a danger to those around him with his self destructive behavior and that naughty mouth of his.
This guy had secrets.. Secrets that kept him hidden behind this perfect disguise.. He had so many different personas and showed everyone the side he knew they needed to see until Rosie!
She was always there in his thoughts and the angst when it came to these two was a gut clincher..

An absolute must read..
It had it all a yummy dirty talking bad boy, engaging plot, dark humor, relate-able situations and an awesome Epilogue..

Damage Control (Dirty Money, #2) ~ Lisa Renee Jones

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.

The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…

Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire?

Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all — one hot touch and kiss at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel has set their sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.

We start off exactly where we were left off in the first book and HOLY CRAP what a ride...

I first need to point out that if you thought Shane and Emily burned up the sheets before? Gahhh- in this installment they were HOTTER, Smoking Hot!! 

There's no way I can go into detail about the plot without giving anything away - Hell I still don't know what will happen next.. how it all will go down! I've been left on the edge of my seat desperate for the next.. Yes another cliffy but that much closer.. 

This series is full of Suspense, Secrets and intense characters who all have a purpose and have been strategically placed.. So many layers!! Layers I want, NEED to unravel..

Playboy Pilot ~ Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

This was a fun, sexy second chances story!
The characters were developed and the secrets were unraveled pretty early on.
Carter was a player and had no issues with his lifestyle until a petite blonde perked up his thoughts on the future..

 Kendall in all honesty was the flighty one.. Even though she didn't come across that way at first.. She was quick to jump to conclusions and had really low self esteem when in my opinion. Luckily Carter put a stop to all of that and once that plane landed it was all good

Loved this quick, Laugh out Load addition

The Debt ~ Karina Halle

Her life changed in an instant. 
And he's the only one who could have prevented it. 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and The Lie comes a new standalone contemporary romance about those McGregor men. 

Jessica Charles shouldn't have even been in London when the unthinkable happened. 
She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, preparing the baby shower for her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always. 
But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever. 
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes. 
That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again. 
Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman. 
Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her. 
And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart. 
He may have been a stranger to her. 
But she’s never been a stranger to him.

What an amazing story.. I FELT the connection between these two broken characters
right from the start..
This one blew it right out of the park!!

The opening to this story was gut wrenching and utterly raw..
we hear about it on the news so much more frequent now..
I for one always wondered about the survivors of these horrendous radical crimes ..
what of the family and friends of the offender.. how it all impacts everyone involved..
How could anyone deal with this not just physically but mentally!

Guilt is a very ugly thing - something that can consume you.. mix that with lies & secrets and you have a concoction you might never be able to run away from!!

I won't get into the story other than to stay I absolutely loved it..
It was so beautiful to see Jessica and Keir slowly fall in love but I was also on the edge of my seat waiting for all hell to break loose and the shit hit the fan!!

It was emotional, real, raw, sexy, inspiring and the feels just kept coming out of everywhere!!
It's a must read for Karina Halle fans she's out done herself again!!
