The Pledge: Mafia Vows Three: Mafia Vows by S.R. Jones

A Bookworm Review by Ana

The Promise

Mafia Dark Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

You must see behind the facade to be able to trully see someone…

Have a look at the blurb:

In my world, you take what you want, and rules are made to be broken.
In her world, people are good, kind, and honorable.
When our worlds collide, the fallout will burn us both.

Stella – her name means star, and for me she burns brighter than any other woman.
I’ve watched her from afar, telling myself she deserves better than me.
When she gets taken, all bets are off, and I make my move.

Stella wants me, wants this, but she’s scared.
So I make her an offer. A deal.
One month. Me and her, and if at the end of it she doesn’t want this she walks away.
Except, Stella doesn’t know I always play for keeps.
And I always win.
Every. Single. Time.

This is a dark mafia romance.

Part of the Mafia Vows series, this follows on from the Mafia Vows duet, and is better read as part of the series as other characters frequently appear from past books.

You can start the series for FREE with The Contract, a prequel introduction to the Mafia Vows world.

Please be aware, this is a dark romance and therefore trigger warnings do apply.

Praise for the series:

“what a whirlwind!” Amazon Reviewer.
“Profound emotions and intrigue.” Amazon Reviewer.
“SR Jones is the bomb at writing Mafia books ” Bookworms Book Blog.
“Amazingly suspenseful and full of romance.” Amazon Reviewer.

#MyReview:

Oh my lord… Oh my lord… I was super excited to read this book since the first day this beautiful author told me that she was thinking of writing it… Can you imagine how I was when I started reading it?
No, you could not…
SR Jones is the bomb. Her books can put you into tears in a sec. She has the ability to make you shake with fear or sweat with desire… Yep… She can do it…
The Pledge is her latest release and tells the stories of Alesso and Stella.
You need to read The Mafia Vows series first and only then you can read this one. Trust me on this… You’ll love it.
Alesso is used to have things done his way or no way. He knows what he wants and doesn’t take no for an answer. When the beautiful Stella crosses his path…
Stella just wants to be free to be what she wants. She’s tired of having her family demanding for her to become someone she doesn’t want. She’s is loyal to a fault, to the ones she loves and will do everything in order to protect the ones she loves. One day everything changes and now…
Jesus… Oh my lord… This book… This book…
I’m stunned, I’m amazed, I’m speechless.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, dark and intense.
Each chapter was even more intense than the latest and you could feel their pain.
These two are so damaged that you will fall for them. On the outside, they look like normal and bright people but on the inside, they are damaged. But is it beyond repair?
Love, loss, betrayal, trust, crime, punishment, desire and madness are hand in hand and you will feel everything.
Word after word, chapter after chapter will grab your attention and won’t let you go.
Once I started reading this book I didn’t want to stop but life has other ideas and it took me more time than I expected but it was so worth it.
I loved everything and I can’t wait for what’s about to come.
SR… Dayum woman… This book… This series is stealing my heart and I can’t wait to read Markos and Star’s story.
Please make it quick…

Skye Jones

About the Author:

Hi Guys. I’m a UK based author who loves to read and write all things romance.

As Skye Jones I write steamy paranormal romance.

As S.R. Jones I write darker, contemporary romance and romantic suspense.

One thing my books have in common are tortured alpha heroes that are oh-so-redeemable!

I live in Yorkshire, and get lots of inspiration from the windswept moors, the old stone buildings and the Celtic myths of this fair isle.

My dogs are my favorite people, although I tell my husband I’m quite fond of him too 😉

I love chocolate and Starbuck’s Mochas and keep meaning to give them up for a life of yoga and fresh juices, but it never happens!

Bleed For Her (Steele Raiders MC) by R.B. Hilliard

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Bleed For Her

MC Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

When you know…you know.

Have a look at the blurb:

Reynolds Walker has had enough drama and heartache to last a lifetime. Finally back on track, she’s looking forward to the quiet life she’s built for herself. When she comes home to discover her almost-fiancé dead and his killers hunting her, she’s left with no choice but to run. Little does she know that the past she’s fought so hard to escape is about to catch up with her.

Clay Buckson has carved out a new life for himself. As a member of Steele Raiders MC, he has everything he’s ever wanted, except for the one woman he can’t have—Reynolds Walker. When his world threatens to destroy hers, he has no choice but to step in. Can he save her before it’s too late, or will he lose her again forever?

Sometimes you have to fight for love, but sometimes you have to bleed for it.

#MyReview:

Oh my God… It’s been so long since I had a book from this lady that I couldn’t stop smiling…
I simply adore this author and she knows it.
R. B. Hilliard is not only an amazing author but a spectacular person. She’s kind and sweet and her writing will take you to places… Just saying…
She has the most fantastic books I’ve ever read and now she is writing MC… MC… Guys, you know what this means don’t you?
MC… My absolute favorite genre… She’s writing it… Oh boy…
Bleed for Her is her latest release and tells the stories of Reynolds and Clay.
Reynolds just wants to forget her past and live her future to the fullest. She’s happy with what she has and just wants to keep living a simple and quiet life.
Until the day she finds her fiance dead and his killers on the hunt to kill her too.
Clay has it all. He has the life he always wanted with his MC family. His life hadn’t been easy but he just kept living.
He can have anything he wants but not everything he desires… And when he sees himself protecting Reynolds…
Oh my God. I was speechless when this book ended.
Wanna know why? Because this was brilliant. Like I knew it would be, coming from this author and all that jazz.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, dark and with so much drama in between.
It was chapter after chapter of suspense, forbidden things and desire… Yep… You’ll find some pretty hot stuff in between. Dayum…
There were two things he that made me read this book. The most important one was the fact that it was written by one of my favorite authors and the second one was that it’s an MC… MC the genre I freaking love… I can’t get enough…
These two are stubborn as a rock and you’ll fall in love with them, cry with their tears, laugh with their jokes but most importantly you’ll fall in love with them.
RB. Woman… You rock. This book… Jesus this book spiked my curiosity and now I want the entire team. I need to know more about them.
Will Ax be the next? Please say yes…

Just Ten Seconds by Jeannine Colette

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Just Ten Seconds

Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

No-one is to damaged to fall in love again…

Have a look at the blurb:

“Top 2019 Reads List!” -Guide To Romance Novels

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for my life to change forever.
I left my posh life in Manhattan and escaped to the Hudson Valley in hopes of a fresh start. It wasn’t until I happened upon a bereavement group when I finally found a place I felt understood. I told them my husband was dead when, really, I was the one who had died inside. It was also where I saw the smoldering gaze of Dean Delgado, the single father whom I’d helped just days before.

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all he wishes he had with his late wife.
Despite Dean’s widowed status, he has a robust thirst for life. He’s a protector and a giver. A man who fixes things with his hands, is devoted to his child, and wants to spend his days with me. I try to avoid him, knowing a woman with my past has no business being in this man’s life. With every run-in, he makes me laugh. With every touch, he ignites me. And with every second, he makes me feel like myself again.

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for me to fall in love with Dean Delgado.
I’m in too deep and my secrets are about to be exposed. I only hope he can forgive me for the lies I never meant to tell.

This is a second-chance-at-love romantic standalone

#MyReview:

And here we go again. Another book devoured…
It’s always amazing to have new books to read. It’s amazing to feel that rush. The rush of a new story, new characters, new plots. It’s intense and amazing at the same time.
Jeannine Colette has been on my heart for a while now. Her books cemented that love and when I got the chance to meet her in person… Oh boy… That day was amazing and I have a picture to prove it. Lol
Her writing goes is hot, wild, sexy and intense. Just give her a chance and you’ll see for yourself.
Just Ten Seconds is her latest release and explores the lives of Dean and Mara.
Dean had had his fair share of sadness, of grief, of loneliness. No one deserves to suffer like that but that can’t define you. He has a kid to take care of.
Mara is used to having all the luxury that money can provide. With this, you would think that she was happy, but you’re wrong. Money only brings up the worse in people. People that should help and protect are the ones that will steal and hurt you the most. So she had only one option. To move away from that life and settle in a new city and built her fresh start.
What she wasn’t counting were her neighbors…
Oh, meu Deus… Yep… I needed to say that in Portuguese… That means “Oh my God”. This book was everything and more.
Perfect plot, very well written, super engaging and intense.
Each chapter was even more perfect than the latest and I loved every word from it.
It was spectacular to witness their growth. It was hard to witness their struggles and the battles they were fighting against, but it was even better to see how the overcame every single one.
These two shared great chemistry and it was surreal to see their connection growing.
There were parts of the story that I wanted to scream so loud and then there were others that I saw myself crying because their pain was so real that I couldn’t stay indifferent.
This book will give us love, loyalty, desire, kindness but it also gave us betrayal, crime, deceive, madness and envy.
It was the perfect book to take my mind off and I know, without a doubt that you guys will love it.
I must say that I have a special love for this book because Jeannine made her male character Portuguese and it was amazing to see my language there.
Jeannine Colette you rock woman. This book was so freaking amazing and I didn’t want it to end.
And I need to ask… What’s next?
And now, a little treat to you…
A cada livro teu, cada palavra tua tem a capacidade de me fazer sonhar, sentir e isso é algo inexplicável.
