Last Breath (Hitman #2) ~ Jessica Clare & Jen Frederick

Last Breath (Hitman, #2)Last Breath by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I never really knew what misery was until the day I was kidnapped and sold for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Two months later, I'm at a brothel in Rio when I meet Daniel Hays. He says he's here to save me, but can I trust him? All I know of him are his sarcastic retorts and his tendency to solve every dispute with his gun. He's also the only safe thing in my world, and I know it's wrong to fall in love with him, but I can't seem to help myself. He says he’ll protect me until his last breath but I don’t know if I should believe him or even if I can.


For the last eighteen months, I’ve had one goal: to find my kidnapped sister. I’ve left the Army, turned paid hit man, and have befriended criminals all across the globe. In every brothel I raid or every human trafficking truck I stop, her face is the one I’m desperate to see. In Rio, I find Regan Porter, bruised but not broken and still sane despite her weeks in hell. I should leave her behind or send her home because the last thing either of us needs is to get involved. But with every passing minute, I find I can’t let her go.

My Review:

This was a Fan~Fucking~Tastic read
From beginning to end non stop action, plot, humor and SIZZLE

Regan was so amazing.. NOTHING broke her she fought back any way she could, not once did she come across as whiney or a victim.. I SOOO was crushing on her especially the way she handled that wooden leg!!!!

Destry (Rough and Hard, #1) ~ Lola Stark

Destry (Rough and Hard)Destry by Lola Stark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Rancher Destry Reeves is your typical country boy; he believes in hard work and the easy life. None of which he recognises in Amelia Highsmith.

When a chance encounter involving a cow, a truck and a dark Texan night puts the two on a collision course, it's not long before the fireworks begin and the simple life is turned upside down.

The last thing Amelia expects is for a brute of a cowboy to get in the way of her new life. She's left behind a world of high class dinners and city lights in an effort to escape a life she never wanted. Amelia finds herself in a world so far removed from home that it becomes impossible to break free without finding herself first.

Drawn together by an inexplicable attraction, Destry and Amelia must decide if such an unlikely pairing can ever survive.

My Review:

4 Cowboy~Licous Stars!!

Number Thirteen ~ Bella Jewel

Number Thirteen

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

We're thirteen girls, captive, slave to our master.
A master we've never seen.
Obedience will become all we know in our shallow existence. It is the only emotion we're permitted to feel.
When we're bad, we're punished. When we're good, we're rewarded.
Our scars run deep. Yet we survive, because we have to...
because HE teaches us to.
All of us are special, we feel it with everything we are.
He has us for a reason, but it's a reason we don't know.
We've never seen his face, but we know that something deeply broken lies beneath the darkness. With every touch, with every punishment, we know it.
Then something changed.
He showed me who he truly is.
Now I want him.
I'll go against everything I know to be with him.

A monster.

My monster.

Loving him is a sin, but a sinner I am. I won't stop until I see every part of him. Even the parts he keeps locked deep down inside.

I am Number Thirteen, and this is my story.

My Review:

3 because of William Stars...

I liked but..... (yes there's a but)
So it started off with soooo much promise the beginning just grasped me and didn't let up till about 38% or so then it just got WEIRD

We got a glimpse of Williams tragic childhood a life altering moment that while reading about you couldn't help but cry...
Then fast forward we're reading about 13 ABDUCTED girls all locked up all tattooed with a number all very, very different!!
 photo b85b58eaba3007749cdbc20e93c69d61_zpse45748c8.jpg

It starts off dark and mysterious and you just can't read fast enough to find out what happens next. You then get introduced to a few of the girls and start piecing things together, possible why's & maybe's?

 photo 8005869_zps581ef4f1.jpg

We get masked balls, daddy issues, cat fight's, seduction, jealousy, family dinner, cops, safe house on and on....

I think we just got a bit TOO much? It went from good to weird over & over again.. and I was still left with some unanswered questions believe it or not!!!

A Husband's Regret (Unwanted, #2) ~ Natasha Anders

A Husband's Regret (Unwanted, #2)A Husband's Regret by Natasha Anders
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Tall and thin, twenty-eight-year-old Bronwyn Palmer has become positively gaunt, a ghost of her former self. That self was—and still is—the wife of a rich, handsome executive with an ocean-view house and his own security staff.

It was in that house, two years ago, that Bryce Palmer learned Bronwyn was pregnant with their first child. But Bryce’s rage over his impending fatherhood touched off a chain reaction of emotional and physical traumas that wounded them both. For Bronwyn, it meant fleeing the perfect marriage to start over with nothing but a precocious daughter named Kayla to care for. For Bryce, it meant a tortuous two years spent blaming his wife for deserting him, and living with the pain of not knowing his child. Now a chance encounter has brought Bronwyn back into Bryce’s life, both bearing scars...and neither knowing the whole truth of that fateful night that drove them apart.

My Review:

What a great Angsty read.. I'm one happy camper
Anyone who read The Unwanted Wife and LOVED this one is a MUST!!!

Bryce & Bronwyn's story was perfect Ms. Anders once again delivered everything I crave in Angst reads.....

 photo 2e14fdda-6105-4c41-8b26-c24bb99faf44_zps19341448.png
Bryce was just full of regret and self loathing and his only outlet was to push away anything that threatened to crumble his walls
 photo images4N2MPREH_zps6cafd480.jpg

Bronwyn was just beautiful inside and out and gave her all in every way.. a series of unfortunate events dealt her an almost devastating blow
 photo imagesJN4NBK9P_zps00379d13.jpg
I loved the dual POV's and saw how much both were hurting, I wanted to slap some sense into Bryce a few times and cry with Bronwyn when hope and reconciliation were no where in sight... I also couldn't seem to wipe the smile off my face when reading about their chatty 18 month old Kayla

I enjoyed every minute of this one and hopefully don't have to wait so long for the next!!

The Bossman ~ Renee Rose

Sophie Palazzo steered clear of the mafia after her father's involvement ended with his murder. Fifteen years later, Joey La Torre, the Don's brother himself, shows up unannounced at her massage studio and wheedles his way into a date. She has no interest in aggressive, macho men like Joey, or so she tries to tell herself, but her body just doesn't get the message. When Joey takes her in hand with a firm bare-bottomed spanking, she ought to be furious, instead, she's aroused. As she explores her physical desires to be dominated, she tries to keep Joey at arm's length emotionally. 

Joey knows he wants Sophie for keeps from the moment he walks into her life. She is hot, classy and full of fire, even though submission turns her on. But his involvement in the mafia is a hard limit for her, bringing to conflict his own dedication to the Family, the code of silence and his relationship with his older brother. Can he reconcile his duty to the organization and his growing need for Sophie to remain in his life permanently?

 photo 9714_zpscd08ed88.gif

Wow!!! I loved Joey.. He was the perfect Male Specimen
He was Possessive but not in creepy way.. he was Dominant in the drench your panties kinda of way and he was Controlling in a you asked for it.. so take IT way!!

Oh Yes Joey knew from pure instinct what Sophie needed and delivered EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Twisted (Tangled #2) ~ Emma Chase

Twisted (Tangled, #2)Twisted by Emma Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice, the most important of my life. Drew already made his –in fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville. Alone. Well, sort of alone....

What I've come to realize is that old habits die hard and sometimes you have to go back to where you began, before you can move ahead.

TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.

My Review:

These 2 are just so lovable and hilarious!!!

 photo Amazing_zps4f1cfc81.png
I first have to mention how Refreshing Emma Chases’ writing is.. It’s fun, witty and a total attention HOG!!

I could not put Twisted down... We start off by getting Kate’s POV set a few weeks after “The Incident” and what a doozy it was. Drew is just such a big (HOT) spoiled Brat.. BUT I LOVE HIM.. He’s such an arrogant little snot you can’t help but read about him with a huge smirk on your face it’s just who he IS, with that being said you can’t not adore Kate for accepting him just as he IS.. I always complain about couples not communicating but in this case it was as if they did but didn’t… Drew jumps to conclusions handles it POORLY and then when it was brought up a few times a bunch of facts were left out that would’ve had the Reponses to the questions meaning something totally different.. SEE WHAT I MEAN?

I laughed out loud A LOT and at the same time wanted to Throttle Drew for his childish ways of handling things.. With every Oh Shit moment I wanted to sob to I couldn’t because right after we get an Oh crap can’t believe he, she, they just did or said that…

I wish we could get a Drew & Kate sitcom along with the rest of the Gang cause that is one show I would definitely TIVO for sure..

On that note I Loved, Loved, Loved and for anyone that’s read Tangled...Twisted is a must!!

 photo blackspscroll_zps535d1289.png

Here are a few of my fave gut busting moments:

Drew pulls the front of his pants away from his waist and looks down. “Nope—still got a dick. Which explains a lot, because your reasoning would only make sense to a woman.”

“Don’t be jealous, Sham—just because you’re too puffed up to enjoy this fine delicacy.” Uh-oh. Did you catch his slipup? Alexandra sure did. “What did you call me?” “What?” “Sham. You called me Sham. What the hell does Sham mean, Matthew?
” Shamu? Oh, that’s Alexandra—new temporary nickname. Matthew and I came up with it a few weeks back when she made the unfortunate choice of wearing a one-piece black-and-white maternity bathing suit to the beach.

“Then I’ll become a chubby chaser. A little extra cushion for the pushin’ isn’t a bad thing.”

This one liner was actually from Holy Frigging Matrimony (a short story) – I just couldn’t resist.. it was just sooo Drew =0)

“Have I told you how cock-stiffeningly gorgeous you look tonight?”

Honor Bound ~ Michelle Howard

Honor BoundHonor Bound by Michelle Howard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


To save her people, Mikayla S'Apul has only two options: Become a prize in the upcoming battle or take control of her fate. When a worn journal falls into her hands revealing the secrets of a legendary group of warriors, Mikayla realizes it holds the answer to her dilemma. A marriage of convenience is the only way to protect the Raasa people.

Overlord Vaan Galip is the commander of the Warlord army tasked with protecting Kabanians and bringing peace to his lands. Betrayed by one of his own, joining with Mikayla S'Apul would provide her people with protection while giving him the opportunity for vengeance. Falling for the Raasa female was never part of his plans.

When a common enemy threatens, Vaan and Mikayla learn the true depth of what it means to be bound not only by marriage but by honor.

My Review:

This was a pleasant surprise especially since I love Paranormal romance so much!!
Not only did I get my PNR fix but I also got some of the angst I crave in reads..
The world building was imaginative and the story had a nice flow that kept me up through the night wanting to see what happened till the end..

Mikayla and Vaan came together for mere convenience and both for their own reason's.. It was sad and heartbreaking to watch how Mikayla struggled with the terms of never having the proper mating she longed for due to duty.
Vaan had me going back and forth with how I felt about his arrogant manners, he was all about vengeance and his Kabanian brother's, a warrior!!

Mikayla - Raasa race sensual and peaceful somewhat snakelike..

Vaan - Kabanian race Overlord to their fierce warriors..

 photo b72a6061-6a49-45ec-8093-ea5a96fbe58b_zpsbb718a9d.jpg

So many times I cringed at Vaan's ignorant insincerity and cheered at Mikayla's subtle ways of getting what she wanted.……… But the ending with its HEA was so much sweeter for it...

Definitely left me with a smile on my face and curious to know if there will be more.......
