The Darkest Frost Vol 1 (TDF, #1) ~ Tanya Holmes

When the ghost of her best friend begs for her help, psychic detective Denieve Knight goes undercover as a live-in domestic to catch a killer. She sets her sights on the most likely suspect: her friend’s mysterious employer, Doctor Braeden Frost.

Dubbed "Dr. Death" by the press, the notorious hematologist is linked to nineteen other suspicious fatalities—all are former patients. The brooding recluse is a man of many secrets, the darkest of which may be lurking beneath the leather gloves he never removes. 

Dark Murder Mystery gone Paranormal.. 
Unexpected, Engaging and Unputdownable!!
Even Better??? I haven’t read anything like it…. EVER!!

Obviously I can’t go into the story much without spoiling it other than reiterate the Blurb, give you a hint of what to expect and let you in on how much I enjoyed this dark paranormal murder romance read!!
It grabbed me from the beginning and held my attn. to the very end..
Well not exactly the end since we are left hanging with a huge cliffhanger and now I’m not so very patiently anticipating Part 2…. 
Ms. Holmes dangled the element of mystery and I bit..

We have a murder mystery investigation, Denieve Knight – Psychic detective extraordinaire has taken on, she also has a vested interest with the case – a personal one. Braeden Frost has been dubbed “Dr. Death” due to all the unexplained deaths that have occurred with patients under his care.
He’s a recluse, broody and mysterious which doesn’t help his reputation at all.. The story starts off with Denieve going undercover, trying to get to the bottom of the multiple deaths as well as the murder of her best friend.
The paranormal elements make the story fun and intriguing.. And as un~explainable events begin to occur and secrets start to slowly unravel we are left with more questions than answers.
There’s also Angst, Suspense, Humor and a few VERY Steamy Sex scenes all of this with a Gothic dark undertone that kept me turning pages and trying to get a grasp on and figure out the main characters.

I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

Broken Lens (Through the Lens, #2) ~ Shannon Dermott

Although this book is the second in the series, it’s been written to be read as a New Adult Stand Alone novel. You do not have to read book one, which is a young adult novel, to enjoy. 

No one said love is ever easy. And for Jess, he would ride his Harley to heaven and back for an eternity with her arms wrapped around him. That makes leaving her that late summer day to head to separate colleges the hardest thing he has to do. Still, he thinks that they could beat the odds and prove everyone wrong, until one drunken night and one sober confession.

Through the jagged edges of a broken lens, he’s faced with the reality of his choices. And fixing the pieces of Jess’s broken heart may be impossible. Without her, he’s left with only a mother who hates him and marks him as a dead man walking. And that’s not the only truth that has the potential to destroy his life.

The upcoming trial will reveal the defendant’s motivations for the crimes committed against the people he cares about. But that guy’s not the only one who’s guilty of something. With a cloud of mistrust hovering around him, can he keep Jess safe from his past? Can she or anyone forgive him for his secrets? Will he win the one girl he’s ever loved back or will he lose her forever?

*WARNING* This book is rated a New Adult book, which means it can contain foul language and sexual situations. Please be warned in advance.

This was an easy paced story taking place right where Through the Lens ended.
This one can be read as a stand alone but I did enjoy having the back story and knowing 
how Ethan and Jessa came to be.. We get Ethans POV in Broken lens and get flashbacks 
into his past relationships with Carly, Allie, his parents as well as his first thoughts on 
when he met Jessa. 
Ethan is damaged, he has mommy issues since his mom has it out for him and we find 
out why, he's been through so much but somehow manages to keep it together as long as 
he can.. Women just throw themselves at him and he seems to stick his foot in his mouth 
just about every time he's around Jessa which is funny since that was never the case 
before he met her!!

Jessa has always been insecure and it doesn't help that her boyfriend is a chick magnet. 
No matter how much Ethan tries to reassure her.. She's it for him ~ 
Jessa just always seems to jump to conclusions - I guess it's more the age aspect of it 
that accounts for her immaturity,
and is really the only thing that annoyed me a few times.. But One thing she did do 
right was always tell him how much she loved him.. Which is all Ethan ever wanted!!

SO much starts to unravel towards the end, secrets are confessed, questions are 
answered and mysterious events are solved. Some jaw dropping but thankfully all
 providing closure..
A read I recommend but it's definitely more on the YA side..

Shattered by You (Tear Asunder, #3) ~ Nashoda Rose

What started out as a deal quickly became a friendship that conquered monsters.

I killed, but I escaped hell.

Emotionless. Disconnected. Cold. A mannequin. It’s what I’d become in order to survive the years held in captivity. I was able to endure the abuse and devastating loss as long as I remained detached.

But he wouldn't let me.

Crisis, the bass guitarist in my brother’s rock band, Tear Asunder. He’s cocky, rude, a total man-whore. But the rock star has far more beneath the surface of his inked skin, and he’s determined to make me laugh again.

He made me a "deal", but really, it was blackmail.

His terms were simple. Until his playful honesty became the building blocks to something unexpected. Something strong enough to pull me from the eye of the storm.

Because even though I escaped years of abuse, it didn’t mean I was free.

Crisis, Crisis he's our man! If he can't do it no one can!!

Crisis did the impossible and tore down Haven's walls brick by agonizing brick..
This tattooed, rock-star, bad boy with a rep for being a man whore eased his way through Havens defenses.. 
He built a friendship so strong Haven couldn't help but trust, cherish, need and treasure 
every moment of it..

Haven has been trying to be strong for her twin Ream.. They have gone through the unthinkable and 
managed to keep some semblance of sanity.
But Haven has bottled it all in, hasn't given herself an outlet, hasn't allowed herself to heal.
She thought she was able to become numb to the memories, categorize them away 
where they'll never resurface... The real demons in her life have all been dealt with but 
her strong front will soon SHATTER and everything she tried to keep buried will 
find a way OUT..

& Crisis will be there to help her through it all..

I absolutely love this series... It's dark, fast paced, suspenseful, gritty, super hot - 
even has a bit of humor & I always enjoy that bit of mysterious undertone every book has had.

These guys have shown us time and again they're much more than just a Rock band ...
 Banded together it's about Family, Loyalty, Survival and Love!

P.S. Kite needs closure too..... soon.....

King (King, #1) ~ T.M. Frazier

Homeless, hungry and desperate enough to steal, Doe has no memories of who she is 
or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless 
you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, pu$$y or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, 
they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go. 

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, consensual and non-consensual sex, drug use, abuse, 
and other taboo subjects and adult subject matter. Although originally slated to be a standalone, KING 
is now a two part series.

I'm at a loss for words!!! I need Tyrant NOW!!!!!!!
I'll be 100% honest and say it was a rough start for me up to like 10% 
but holy hell after that I was so consumed by the book I couldn't eat or sleep until the end.. 
And What An End!!!  (Clutching Heart)

Goodness Gracious.. The Feels.. I've heard people mention it before.. Now I Know!!!
The entire story was just an up and down, twist and turn, emotional mind FUCK!!!
Every main character won me over and I couldn't help but laugh when they did, feel offended when they were and cry when it just couldn't be held back!

Even though the story's about King and Doe 
Preppy was front and center along with Bear and Grace.. You will fall for each and everyone of them guaranteed..  

Doe woke up with no memory of her past and found her self alone and on the streets.. She's thrust into a world were her only focus is Survival... find shelter and food by ANY means necessary!!
This is where the story really takes off and Doe finds herself  undoubtedly screwed. 

We reacquaint ourselves with King in all his hotness and Preppy in all his lovable, psycho craziness years later. 
Doe comes into the picture and gets in too deep, way way, way over her head..
The story takes us on a wild super intense ride where Doe eventually finds herself as King's property!

"You're not my prisoner. You're mine." ~King

Along the road you just can't help falling for King & Preppy..
Preppy and his quirky dangerous, loyal self and King with his total Alpha demeanor and twisted asshole persona...  

"King got off the bike and stalked toward me. He snatched the helmet out of my hands and roughly shoved it onto my head. My hair was trapped over my eyes and I was momentarily disoriented" ~Doe  (did I mention King was an asshole?)

There were so many Holy Shit and You've Got To Be Shitting Me moments..
So many Laugh Out Loud and a few HELL FUCK NO ones!! 
where you have to bust the tissues out  and sob ugly tears while still smiling...

"Preppy settled for PREP on his knuckles."
" I'm so gangsta." Preppy said, admiring his newly tatted up knuckles. "You're about as gangsta as my ninety year old grandma," ~Bear
I thought I was done for with that ending but boy was I wrong 
when I got a taste of Tyrants teaser..

A Definite Must Read!!

Ride Steady (Chaos, #3) by Kristen Ashley

The ride of her life . . . 

Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

Climb on and hold tight . . . 

In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .

To be honest I couldn't remember who Joker was and might need to do a reread of the last few books to refresh my memory. But WHO CARES!!! 
It's a Kristen Ashley Choas Novel and we got to know anything and everything we needed to know about JOKER along the way and he's been bumped up to my "Tack standards...
Yessery Joker was AWESOME

It broke my heart to read about everything Joker had to endure but it was a true testament to everything he overcame.. Carissa AKA Butterfly was in serious need for some floats at the very least,  she was thrown into the deepest end of the ocean with nothing to grasp onto and still managed to stay positive and be an amazing mom to her son.
Once Carissa let Joker help and by accepting everything he was...
That was all Joker needed to have a purpose and want that Life, that Family not just what his his brothers could offer..

Another amazing addition to the Chaos series, sexy & sweet...
Ride Free!!!

Beat (Life on Stage, #2) ~ Vi Keeland

Dimpled smile of a boy

Hard body of a man

Sings like an angel

Fucks like the devil

I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place.

At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall. At twenty-five his body hovered over mine. 
Every girl’s fantasy became my reality. I was dating a rockstar. 
Yet I was slowly falling for another man. The problem was—the two men—they shared a tour bus. 

Flynn Beckham was the opening act.

Dylan Ryder was the headliner.

What happens when the opening act begins to shine so bright, it seems to dim everything else in its wake?

I’ll tell you what happens. Things get ugly. 

I absolutely LOVED IT..
No doubt FLYNN has landed a spot on my book boyfriend list...
And has stolen a piece of my heart... He's not your average Rock-Star! Hell he's not even your average guy!

In THROB I got just a taste of who Flynn was and really liked what I saw.. In BEAT we finally see him in all his yummy glory. I knew going in what I was getting myself into, I knew there would be possible cheating - I don't condone it but to be honest I don't really mind reading about it especially when we get a HEA... But it wasn't as pronounced here, I found myself rooting for it, cause I got to meet Ryder and well... You'll just have to read it ;)

As I got more engrossed with the story and lost myself with all the sexual tension I Wanted them to finally let go, I Needed Lucky to just say FUCK IT !! and succumb to the obvious Chemistry and get clenching Lust.
The story also had me bust out a tissue.. Lucky was definitely talented and we got to see just how much as her story slowly unfolded, we found out about her past and we got answers to the whys and it was oh so bitter sweet!!! 

Along with amazing Sexual Tension, Tons of Dirty Talk, Scorching HOT Sex scenes, Humor & Sarcasm...
I enjoyed watching Flynn take care of the most important women in his life,  all while still being 
Sexy.. I didn't want it to end..... I couldn't get enough....
He can definitely melt anyone's FROZEN heart!!
