Last Hope (Hitman, #4) ~ Jessica Clare & Jen Frederick

Mendoza: I grew up in the slums and lost everything I loved to poverty, illness, and death. I had only one skill to leverage myself out of my circumstances—violence. Being hired out as a mercenary hitman brought me money and built an empire. But all that I've fought for is in jeopardy. My next job: Steal secret information that could bring down world governments. Find my target. Destroy it. But then, I meet her.
 Ava: Karma hates me. When my best friend Rose is kidnapped, I have no choice but to take a job as a mule for a pair of criminals intent on selling top-secret information to the highest bidder. I should have known that bad luck tends to cling, because the plane I'm on goes down. That I survived a crash-landing was a miracle. And so was being rescued by Rafe Mendoza—hot, sexy, dangerous. The thing is, he wants the information that I need to free Rose. I can't let him have it, but I need his help. And I need to fight this crazy attraction for this mercenary with hungry eyes. Rose is depending on me, and I won't let her down, no matter how appealing Rafe is.

Okay lets point out the Godzilla in the "Book" Hahaha
RAFE MENDOZA has a ......

Annnnddd Yes.... no way to Avoid the ....

This was such a fun action packed read..
We have a Hand Model and a Mercenary need I say more??
Rafe has gone and fallen hard for Ava and not even the mission he's on can put a damper on that..
He really just wants to admire her from afar and maybe have a taste but that's as far as he will go..
Ava has found her self in the middle of a shit storm trying to save her BFF 
but she is no quitter and will do what ever necessary no matter the dangers..

I loved Ava she was kickass and even though her self esteem was lacking she was a fighter through and through.. Funny, Witty, Strong and Loyal..
Rafe & Ava end up stranded in the Amazon and that's where the fun begins..
there were so many Laugh out Loud moments the death and danger actually took a back seat..
Great Plot, Scorching Hot Scenes, Suspenseful with a HEA!!
A Definite Must read.. and it definitely can be read as a Stand Alone...

FYI- there were so many dick jokes I had to jot some down... hahahaha
When Ava got nervous or needed to distract herself she was a talker a funny one at that!!

Sins of Sevin ~ Penelope Ward

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have? 

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin. 

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since "the one" wasn’t Elle. 

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Talk about Angst!! Wow this one tipped the scales..
I am such a glutton for punishment because the deeper the story got the quicker I turned those pages. 

Sevin underestimated his worth..
But he always stood true to what he wanted and what he would do and give up to get !!!
I felt like such a hypocrite because I was rooting for Sevin and Evangeline from the very start and pretty much all the way until....
 I didn't like Evangeline anymore

I understood why she felt so guilty, I understood why she tried to keep her distance but I just couldn't understand and stomach what she did to Sevin.. 
I just had to tell myself she had good intentions, she ultimately wasn't being selfish, she paid for her sins.. And was able too breathe and finally got to cry happy tears when we got somewhat of a happy ending..

This was such an emotional read, about fate, beliefs, guilt, betrayal as well as trust and forgiveness..

A must read for Angst Lovers!!
It's all about
Forbidden Desires & Unconditional Love

Stay, A Dark Romance ~ Chelsea Camaron

Fair Warning … 
This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. 
This is a story to leave you feeling dirty.

Nothing about us is normal.
Nothing about us is natural.

Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly? This is our story.

He is a hitman. The very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me.

At ten he captured me, at fifteen he consumed me, and at eighteen he owned me.

Outsiders think he’s my father … that is so far from the truth.

Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed. He takes me as I am.

Wow oh Wow..

BUT NO HEA here.. 
There is child abuse - mental and physical and there is death - 
so if these are triggers for you I'm letting you know this is what the story is based on..
Heed the warning people there is no sappiness or sweetness NADA..
But a great story none the less another plus is that you get your pick of 2 Epilogues and 
NO it doesn't change the actual ending!! (which is what I was hoping for)
You're either an eye for eye type or a you deal and move on type..
Definitely a quenching Dark Romance Readers fix!!!

This was a story of stolen innocence and a twisted need at redemption
It was about new beginnings and dark desires and ultimately an obsession that 
lead to blood shed.
How can you not fall in Love with your captor when everything that you lacked, 

were deprived of  was provided by him?
Every nightmare comforted, every wish granted?
You'll have to read to see if you yourself wouldn't fall for this stranger!!

I DID!!!

Burning Ember (Harbingers of Chaos, #1) ~ Darby Briar

The last thing she needs after running from one monster is to land in the lair of the Devil.

Twenty-one year old Ember flees her past with soot on her face, ash in her hair, and a promise. She’ll never let another man take away her freedom and treat her like she means nothing.

But that is exactly what Maverick Gunn, leader of the notorious Harbinger’s of Chaos Motorcycle Club seeks to do from the moment his lethal gaze locks on her. He burns her with every look. Every touch. Every word. 

Ember’s only hope is to convince him she’s nothing like the woman who blackened his soul before he drags her down into the darkness with him.

What an amazing Debut..
Kickass Heroine, Yummy Bad Boys Galore, Angst, Action packed, Drama
Twist & Turns.. 

Wow I loved it.. I got pulled into Embers' world and didn't want to look back 
even with the shitty hand she was dealt over and over again I couldn't help but admire her and want to be her.. She was a fighter through and through and still manage to stay sweet and love unconditionally!!

Mav AKA Luce was so wrapped up in his past he couldn't see past anything else..
He became jaded and bitter.. and only had his club to live for..
He didn't know what hit him when Pumpkin/Doll came in blazing.. He couldn't help but doubt motives and harshly lash out..

I was gutted a few times with how Ember was treated, also flip flopped back and forth with Mavericks behavior and actions.. 
But in the end we got our HEA and I couldn't help but fall for all the characters..
I'm so looking forward to read about each and everyone of them, see what skeletons they each hold in their closets.. 

Ember and Mav's story had it's fair share of dark moments, blood shed and both sad & happy tears.. I didn't want their book to end!!

Next Up?
I'll gladly read anything on Dozer, Edge, Rigor, Taz hell even Griz..
with a side of Ivy
Keep them coming pretty please Darby Briar
You Nailed this Debut!!

Charlie Fox Trot (Code -11 KPD SWAT, #5) ~ Lani Lynn Vale

Foster made a promise in his hospital bed when his leg was taken from him that he’d get back to one hundred percent. Leg or no leg, he’d get back on the SWAT team if it killed him.
And he does get back. But he has a problem.
He can’t let go of the past.
The anger burns deep, making his emotions volatile at the best of times.
Then he meets Blake with her haughty attitude and inability to distinguish the difference between a pocket knife and a sword.
Little by little, she makes him whole again, one bad joke at a time.
She doesn’t see the revenge in his eyes, though. Doesn’t see the rage burning deep.
Rage so pure and all encompassing, that he knows it’ll explode.
It’s just a matter of time.
What Foster doesn’t realize, though, is that the love that Blake has for him is enough to fight his demons, one kiss at a time.
Foster never stood a chance.

These Spurlock men have been absolutely divine!!
Foster was one of my fave's
He didn't let the cards he was dealt hold him down.. No W'oh is me from Foster!!
He got back into the game and came back better and stronger!!
A teeny bit jaded but nothing that deterred Blake..

Blake was what Foster needed in his life she was spunky, motivated, optimistic 
had tons of Love.. She didn't let her previous marriage affect her in anyway and 
had a great rock to lean on with her father, uncle & gramps..

Lani Lynn Vale definitely nailed it for me with this one..
Every single little thing I have raved about in her books was front and center..
I balled my freaking eyes out and then laughed through out!!
You know it's a good read when all these feels are brought out..

Looking forward to Bennett's story.. 
He's been around for quiet some time and I know for sure 
I can't wait to see what his perfect other half will be like..
Keep them coming Ms. Vale

Like a Lover (Housemates, #2) ~ Jay Northcort

Josh has a plan: get through uni with a good degree and no debt. Focused on his goals, he pays his way by working as an escort. He enjoys the no-strings sex because he doesn’t have time for a relationship. Falling in love definitely isn’t part of the deal—especially not with a client.

When Rupert meets Josh in a bar, he’s smitten on sight. He’s never paid for sex, but when Josh propositions him, he can’t resist. He should’ve known one night would never be enough. Luckily for him he has an inheritance to fund his addiction to Josh, because his job in IT support wouldn’t cover the cost.

With each encounter the lines get blurred, creating something that feels more like a relationship than a business transaction. But they come from different worlds, and to go from client-and-escort to lovers seems impossible. If they want a future together, Josh and Rupert have a lot to overcome.

I 'm hooked and now always look forward to Jay Northcort's reads..
This one was a treat.. It was based on Josh's story, we met him in Helping Hand
He was an openly gay roommate that provided some much needed advise..

Advise he didn't seem to follow when it came to his own issues..
Josh was on a mission and had his blinders on when it came to relationships..
Even though he technically wasn't adverse to them.. Just didn't think he'll ever find his Mr. Right..

Rupert was just plain adorable and Hot!!
He was basically cornered into the situation he found himself in with Josh and couldn't find a way around it where they could both come out the Victorious. He was just going with the flow, didn't want to mess up a good thing but definitely wanted more..

Communication is SO important and there seemed to be a lack of that here...
Luckily it didn't drag for too long and we got our happily ever after..
With some Smokin' Scenes and a Few Laughs!!

Josh & Rupert
