Operation: My Fake Girlfriend: A Surprise Pregnancy, Small Town Romantic Comedy

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Operation: My Fake Gilfriend

Romantic Comedy

I give this book 5 stars!

You will find love where you least expect it.

Have a look at the blurb:

Some people think a knickerless walk of shame is as bad as it gets.
Some people are wrong. Very. Wrong.

That awkward moment when you figure out the hot piece of ass in bed beside you, AKA—your drunken hook up—is your boss’ boss, billionaire hottie Sebastian Stone.

Even more awkward? The knowledge that there is no way I can retrieve my knickers from the chandelier above his bed without waking him.

Now he wants me to be his fake girlfriend, and he has an offer I cannot refuse.

I’ve fought my whole life to prove I have what it takes to run the family empire. Unfortunately, these days my Gramps cares more about family values than stock values. And he’s not handing over the company unless I find love. 

Grace Harper is the no-strings hook up I haven’t been able to forget.

Finding out she’s my employee and a hot little rule breaker—Who brings their geriatric cat to work?—I figure she’s perfect for Operation: My Fake Girlfriend.

Will a phony relationship unleash Grace and Sebastian’s deepest desires? Or will faking it make them come undone?

OPERATION MY FAKE GIRLFRIEND is a HOT RomCom with lashings of banter, fun and all the feels. It is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult content.


I’ve discovered this author not a long time ago and let me just say that I’ll be stalking her forever.
This author had given me some hot and funny stories that melted my heart and wet my panties. Lol
Each book was even more funny and hot and I wanted more.
Emily James is freaking amazing. Her writing is spectacular and so freaking awesome.
Just give her a chance and you’ll see.
Operation: My Fake Girlfriend is her latest release and explores the lives of Sebastian and Grace.
Sebastian seeks his grandpa’s approval. He was working alongside him in their company and needed to seek more success. But his pop’s always saw something that wasn’t right. He was getting a bit fed up with it but what could he do?
In order to gain control of the company he had to prove to his grandpa that he was able to care more about someone else than him. That he was capable of giving himself to someone but…
Grace had to move out because she needed a fresh start. She caught her boyfriend cheating on her with her roommate. Now she’s in another town making ends meet with her cat. One night stand was supposed to be just that until it wasn’t.
This was a sweet short story that melted my heart.
I really loved the plot, loved how it was written and I simply adored all the characters.
Like the greedy girl that I am… I always want more.
It was a great story that lifted my mind and heart.
I adored every chapter and I read it in one sitting.
Emily… I feel like I’ve been reading your books for so long. You, my dear are brilliant and this was just another freaking awesome story.
Can’t wait for more.

Light My Heart (Crystal Shores Book 1) by Terra Kelly

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Light My Heart

Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t run from true love. Don’t be afraid…

Have a look at the blurb:

Her shining light will change both our lives.

My life had been on pause since she died.

I was still living in the past.

Then Sarah showed up.

Her gorgeous smile took me back to a time when I felt alive.

Slowly I discover our lives had intertwined for a reason.

But behind her laugh hides darkness.

She’s running from something or someone in her past.

I thought I was ready to help her…

Crystal Shores is a small-town romance series with recipes made by the characters in the back of the book. 



And… Let’s go for another ride… A ride in between pages of another intense book.
Terra Kelly has given me some of the most intense books I’ve ever read and she’s super versatile.
Not only can she write a sweet book, but she can also write some hard and intense stuff.
Just grab her books and see for yourself.
Light My Heart is her latest release and it’s the first book from the Crystal Shores series.
This book explores the lives of Eddie and Sarah.
Eddie is a widower and a single Glenn dad.
He’s struggling to beat his sadness and grief as well as helping his little girl cope with the loss of her mommy. Being a firefighter sometimes doesn’t help…
Sarah moved to a new town to get her new start.
Her goals are to stay for only 6 months, get a place to live and a job to do. But what is she hiding?
It was an amazing news when I saw this book published.
I’ve previously read it and I knew it needed to be out for more fans to read.
Perfect plot, very well written, super engaging, and intense.
It had it all, from perfect characters to a sweet little girl that will melt your hearts.
Of course that not all is a bed of roses and that made this story even more perfect.
Chapter after chapters I felt like I was living the story. I was feeling like the characters were and it was perfect
I know that I’ve repeated this word lots of times but I’m going to say it again. Perfect.
Now I was left wanting more.
Terra… Please don’t take to long.
I need more.

Flirting with the Single Dad (The Single Dads of Seattle Book 9) by Whitley Cox

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Flirting with the Single Dad

Contamporary Romance 

I give this book 5 stars!

Everything might look lost until it isn’t…

Have a look at the blurb:

When first impressions happen twice.

Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other’s backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again. This is Atlas’s story …

Single Dad of Seattle, Atlas Stark is in over his head. A widower, he’s been left to raise his daughter, and his infant cousin alone, while also trying to make partner at his law firm. If things at work weren’t stressful enough, his home life is getting hairy too. His daughter’s acting out, eager for her father’s attention, and she’s taking it out on the baby. Already stretched too thin, he’s one frayed strand away from snapping. Desperate for help, he takes her to see a therapist. What he doesn’t count on is her being a tall, blonde knock-out with sapphire eyes and penchant for motorcycles. Too bad she annoys the crap out of him.

Tessa Copeland’s life has never been easy. With a chronically ill mother, she was forced to grow up quicker than most. A successful art therapist, she’s determined not to let her baggage set her back. Until her fiancé cheats on her and takes her dog. She’s never brought her personal life to work, but she can’t stop thinking about the father of one of her clients, or the fact that he’s an assuming jerk with a smolder that gets her engine running. But things grow blurry when she finds herself seeking legal counsel from the broody Atlas, and even though the two continue to butt heads, their chemistry is undeniable.

Will flirting with the single dad lead Tessa down a dangerous road riddled with potholes and blind turns? Or will it be exactly what they both needed to finally feel whole again?

**Note: This book can be read as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, and of course as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. If you like single dads who take charge, this book is for you.




You don’t know how long I was waiting for this book… It looked like it was so long but actually, it wasn’t. A couple of months but too long… Lol
This is how I feel every time an author that I really adore has books coming out.
The more I read, the more I want and I can’t get enough.
Each book is even better than the latest and I’m hooked.
Whitley Cox is the author that I’m talking about and her writing is super sweet, intense, and hot. But don’t let the sweet lady fool you because she creates some intense stories with complex characters and problems.
Flirting with the Single Dad is her latest release and it’s the ninth book from the Single Dads Of Seattle seties. A series that you can’t miss and must read all books it’s an order.
Just trust me on this.
This new book explores the lives of Atlas and Tessa.
Atlas is a lawyer and a single parent. He lost his wife and was left to raise his daughter and also his infant cousin alone. He’s a very reserved man because he’s still in pain. When he started to play cards with other single parents he was supposed to open up, but that’s hard for him. Shen his daughter starts to act up and misbehaving he went with her to see a therapist and…
Tessa is an art therapist that loves her job. She needed to grow up fast due to her mother’s illness but that shaped her to became an amazing person and to not let her baggage interfere.
The thing is when her fiancé cheats on her she almost lost it. Until she meets Atlas…
So freaking good. So freaking intense… So everything.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, and beautiful.
Some chapters were hard to read due to the emotional baggage they had, and others were hot… Oh yeah… Some hot stuff in there too.
There were parts of the story that I wanted to get inside the book and slap someone… Jeez… Why can’t you see what’s right in front of you? Stubborn arse.
But then there were others that I was crying and shaking from its intensity.
Let’s talk about emotional…
Once I started this book, I didn’t want it to end or stop, but work got in the way and that delayed my reading.
I was mad… Oh, so freaking mad but then, one night I devoured the rest.
Perfect, intense, passionate… This book was all that and some more.
Can’t wait to read the next in the bunch…
That one will be… Oh boy…
Whitley… Woman… You rock. This book was perfect and you achieved greatness… Perfection.

Day One by Lauren Runow

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Day One

Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Love will hit you when you least expect it…

Have a look at the blurb:

My thoughts of how I’m going to survive this indefinite amount of time alone are interrupted by a notification from my Tinder app.

Yes, we’re on quarantine. Yes, I reactivated my account out of pure boredom. And, yes, Drew’s one profile photo is smoking hot.

I hit Reply.

Day by day, as the world tries to stay healthy, we find creative ways to pass the time together. #alonetogether

We quickly find out that getting to know each other is the easy part; staying away from one another is the challenge.

Day one cover


It’s been a while since I’ve read a book from this lady.
A solo book, because I’ve read one perfect series that she co-written with another freaking awesome author.
One of those readings was one book that stole my heart, crushed it, and destroyed it.
It was one of the biggest ugly cries of my book life.
She has tried to redeem herself and succeeded but that book…
Lauren Runow has that effect on me. She knows what she’s doing…
Her writing is super appealing, sweet but also very hot and intense.
Day One is her latest release and explores the lives of Sharee and Drew.
Sharee is a six-grade teacher and adores her job. But being on lockdown almost drove her crazy but it was mandatory or she could get very sick.
While scrolling through social media she started changing messages with a guy and…
Sweet, perfect and so much more.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, and beautiful.
It was amazing to see this author grab a problem that we are currently living and then turn it into a story.
And what a story.
Each chapter was even more perfect than the latest, and it was hot.
Some scenes were freaking awesome.
And… Who would have thought that the main character was a fan of Lauren Runow’s books??
This name sounds familiar to me but I can’t figure out why???
This was the story that I was needing to light up my mood.
Thank you, Lauren and bravo. Another sweet book.
Although I have one complaint?
Why did it have to end so fast?

Abrupt by Kathy Coopmans

A Bookworm Review by Ana


Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

True love will find you. No matter the time that had passed…

Abrupt Synopsis

From USA Today Bestselling Author comes a spinoff from The Unbound Trilogy.

Have you ever wondered if regret will imprison you, or does it set us free as the truth does?

Regret was the one thing I had. It owned my charred black soul. That emotion was digging so deep into my bones like a deadly disease.

I hid it well. Let people believe I was a kind man.

I’m far from one. I’m brash, bold, and angry at the curveball life has thrown at me.

My saving grace came in the form of a tiny bundle wrapped in pink. My daughter.

The day I learned I’d raise her on my own, was the day I kept the only vow I didn’t intend to break. I wasn’t letting a woman in my bed or my heart. There wasn’t room for one with my daughter owning one half and a woman I let slip through my fingers holding onto the other without her knowing it.

I kept that vow until now.

She’s back.

The one that owns the other half of my heart.

She’s carrying more pain than she left with, I can see it in her eyes. I should never have let her go, and now my regret is here, facing me head-on.

I made a mistake, one I plan to rectify.

I am a Mitchell, after all. I’ll stop at nothing to get what I want.


I have to prove to her that there will be no more broken promises, show her that my heart, the half I gave to her so long ago, is still hers.

*Although this book can be read as a standalone, I do encourage you to read the Trilogy to get to know the family of brothers better.*

Abrupt Review

How to start the perfect review for a perfect book written by one perfect author?
How can I start it without sounding like a broken record?
Do o care what others think? Sometimes but not always. Lol
Kathy Coopmans is one of my favorite authors and every single Glenn book that I’ve read, and they were so many, made me eager for more.
The more I read, the more I want, and vice versa.
Her writing can be sweet and raw at the same time, and the best way to show you is to make you read them all. Trust me on this.
Abrupt is her latest release and explores the lives of Lane and Sienna.
But I need to tell you something, despite the fact that this book is a standalone, I advise you to read the Unbound series first. By doing so, you’ll see where all starts and it’s the best way to connect the dots that might be missing while reading good Abrupt.
Lane is a single Glenn dad that revolves his life around his daughter. Life is full of bad decisions and regrets but since the moment he held his daughter he vowed to become so better man and to not let any woman get in the way.
All was well until a blast from the past returns…
Sienna saw her heartbroken the day her boyfriend cheated on her. That day, she turns to the man that would become her husband and her savior but life had other ideas. After suffering tremendously she seeks a new life but her past and those things that happened…
I have no words… No words… And that it’s almost impossible since I love to talk.
This book… Oh boy, this book…
Sublime plot, very well written, super engaging and intense, surrounded by a cloud of darkness and drama.
Each chapter made me scream, curse, sometimes cry, and angry sometimes.
It was one problem after the other. It was one fight after the other. And, it was two stubborn people who wanted to stay together.
There were parts of the book that I wanted to get inside the story and slap someone, but then there were others that I just wanted to hold them and promise better days.
But not everything was darkness, we have also some hot and steamy scenes…
It was one bumpy rollercoaster ride that I would take again.
This book leaves us an important message in the end. Just read it and do what it asks when the time comes.
Kathy… What can I say? You rock woman. You rock.
It was the perfect book and I loved the glimpses from the other characters from the previous books.
Can’t wait for what’s about to come.

Abrupt Lane




“Do I look like a man who gives a shit that’s a two thousand dollar bottle of bourbon? I told you to give me the whole damn bottle.” A breath of disgust passes through my clenched teeth. More of it’s about ready to slip out of my lungs if I don’t get the hell out of this room to breathe some fresh air.

I’m two point five seconds from causing a scene at this farce of a wedding by reaching across the bar and crushing the bartender’s windpipe the minute he turns back around. All the while shouting to everyone that the bride will never love the groom the way she does me.

“Sienna.” Her name leaks out of my aching chest in a barely-there whisper.

“And I told you Mr. Ricci said to cut people off if I thought they had too much. You’ve had enough, pal.” He spins on his feet, daring to stare me down.

I’m not this asshole’s pal. I’m nothing but a miserable man who needs to drink myself into a stupor. He happens to be in my way.

I contemplate jumping over this bar to take my frustration out on his face or scare the shit out of him.

Either way, I will have that bottle.

“I’ll show you, pal, when I ram this down your throat. Do you have a problem with giving me the bourbon now?” I flash my gun, not bothering to thank him when he raises his hands in surrender, grabs my drink of choice, and slides it across the smooth top of the bar.

I hated guns about as much as I hated having to attend this wedding. The problem was, tonight, I wanted to strap it to my side in case I decided to pull the trigger and shoot the groom in the back of the head as he stood at the altar. Now, I wish I had.

Sienna is married, my life, my girl is married.


“Wise choice, asshole.” I snatch hold of it, fingers itching like a bitch to walk up to the groom, dump it over his head and light him on fire.

Yeah, I had a problem with the groom.

I hated his guts. He has my only regret, my life, my everything in his arms.

At twenty years old, I had a list a mile long of regrets, most of them having one thing or another to do with the bride.

Regret number one, she was as much the forbidden fruit as tempting, and I was that much of a dumb ass like Adam was with Eve to take a bite. I knew the commandments and broke them anyway by touching the woman with hair the same color as the apple.

Flaming red.

She’s poisoned me for life.

The woman should be mine instead of some made man’s in her father’s mafia. Bastard jumped at the chance to slide a ring on her finger within two months after I made the biggest mistake of my life.

I might be able to handle it if he wasn’t a piece of scum, I think, to be a traitor. If only I had the proof to back up my instincts. The only thing I have is how my blood boiled every time he shook my hand and smiled with a sinister look in his eyes.

If I find out he’s fucking with my family or trying to destroy what they’ve built, I’ll blow a hole right between those demonic looking eyes.

Taking a swig, I spin around, keeping my eyes on the door, determined to not only look at the bridal table but to take my pity party for one as far away from the glam, glitter, and the celebration as I can get. I need to be drunk and forget about watching the gorgeous woman dressed in white walking down the aisle toward a man I know damn well she doesn’t love.

No. That love will always belong to me.

I need to forget the hurt on her face when she found out what I did at Behind Closed Doors; the sex club me and my brothers own. I need to forget how I should have never fallen for a girl years ago when I knew I couldn’t keep her.

I need to learn how to live my life full of regrets. I need to forget Sienna Ricci ever existed and move on.

If I don’t, I’ll likely get us and a slew of other people I care about killed.

Throne Away by Leddy Harper

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Throne Away

Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Life isn’t a fairytale…

Have a look at the blurb:

I’ve always believed that love was hard, and when you found it, you held onto it with everything you have.

That wasn’t the case with Ryan.

Loving him was easy, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t hold onto him.

Because I wear a crown.
And he’s a single father raising a child…five thousand miles away.




Jesus, it’s been a while since I had a book from this lady to read and I can honestly say that I missed her.
I missed her words and the emotions it evoked in me.
Of course that not every book was a walk in the park, because this author is responsible for one of the ugliest cry stories of my book life.
Leddy Harper knows what she’s doing. One minute she has a hot book and the next she’ll put you into tears… Just wait.
Throne Away is her latest release and explores the lives of Moira and Ryan.
How can you overcome the pain of losing one of your loved ones? How can you cope?
Moira had lost a bit of herself and the need to escape was strong. On a walk to the pier, she met Ryan and something clicked.
Ryan is a photographer that loves his job. On one of his getaways, he was mesmerized by a beautiful woman at the pier.
Sometimes life takes us to a place that we were meant to be but then something gets in the way because he has a daughter and she’s the future Queen…
Another perfect story.
It was a sweet and perfect ride that I enjoyed every turn.
Perfect plot, super sweet, perfect, and engaging.
It was perfect from the beginning until the end.
The interaction between the character and the chemistry they shared was perfect.
It was sweet and I didn’t want it to end. I wanted more, and I needed more but it’s over…
Why? Lol
Leddy this was another book that I loved and it didn’t make me cry…
It was perfect in every way.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Have Mercy

NA Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t deny what your heart trully wants behind hard and bad words…

Have a look at the blurb:

My relationship with Royal Fitzpatrick has always been complicated and messy. At times, it’s even been incredibly painful.

When I finally decide to stand up to him our senior year, unable to take another second of his bullying, Royal does the last thing I expected – he promises to change his evil ways.

But I’ve been hurt by him for too long. He’s a lost cause.

We are a lost cause.

At least that’s what I tell myself for months until I see him actually become the good, kind man I knew he could be.

Unfortunately, Royal still has secrets, ones he’s intentionally kept from me and his best friends.

So while I was stupidly planning our future together, Royal was just trying to make amends before he says a final goodbye.




Let’s go… Let’s go get ready for another book…
Another book from an amazing author that I really adore.
L.A. Hart aka Lane Hart has created this series that will make you not only blush but to see life with other eyes.
Have Mercy is the third book from the Mercy Academy and you must read the first to book.
Each book portrait the lives of one of the three friends and so much happens…
Just grab your copy and dig in.
This new book explores the lives of Royal and Hannah.
Royal is the typical bad boy. He doesn’t take shi*** from anyone and doesn’t have mercy.
One night stands are his motto but…
Hannah is fed up with being treated badly by Royal and decides to stand up for herself and forget about him but sometimes what our head wants our heart doesn’t.
My heart is so full I’m afraid it might burst… Oh boy.
This book was perfect in every imperfect way.
Each chapter had so much going on that I was mesmerized by it.
Superb plot, very well written, super intense and special.
It was the perfect rollercoaster.
It was the perfect way to see a damaged guy with no hopes or dreams. He only had pain and a facade that hides him from others.
She was perfect too, and despite the pain, she never lost herself.
These two shared great chemistry and it was perfect to see them together.
Of course that bot everything was a bed of roses because we were hit by a few thorns…
Overall it was perfect and I didn’t want it to end.
Perfect L.A. Hart. Simply perfect.

Stealing Cinderella bt A. Zavarelli

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Stealing Cinderella

Dark Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Fairytale…or not…

Have a look at the blurb:

Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me.

It should have been simple.

Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity.

But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected.

He was dark and intense and eerily quiet.

When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin.

He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again.

Then he came for me.

And he took me.

And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived.

He’s the crown prince.

And, now, I’m his captive.

This is a full length standalone with dark themes.




Oh lord… Lord have mercy… Mercy on me…
Wanna guess? Guess why I’m saying this?
Another amazing book, yes amazing, is about to be devoured by me.
I can say amazing without even reading the entire book. I can shout Freaking awesome, just by reading the blurb. And you want to know why?
Because this book is written by A. Zavarelli.
You heard me right.
This stunning author has a new book and I couldn’t start it soon enough.
Her writing is hot, wild, dark and stunning.
Stealing Cinderella is her latest release and it’s not your average fairytale.
Oh no… It’s quite the opposite.
This new book explores the lives of Thorsen and Ella.
Thorsen is the prince of Norway. He’s a reserved man that knows what he wants. He doesn’t want attachments or a relationship. He’s in a dark place. One look at Cinderella and…
Ella, like her namesake Cinderella lost her dad and was left living with her step-mom and stepsisters. Life is not easy for her but she has the biggest heart.
Her goal is to gather enough money to save the Animal sanctuary and…
Oh my God… What was this?
Jesus… What a book…What a ride…
Sublime plot, very well written, super engaging, super intense and surrounded by darkness…
It was perfect to witness this story. It was perfect to see this fairytale in another way.
We ate used to all the hearts and flowers and unicorns but in this case, we had thorns, darkness evilness, and despair.
It was scary to read a few parts but there was hot stuff in there too.
Dayum… It was hot as hell to read a few scenes.
These two were made for each other and it was perfect to see the beauty and the beast again.
It was a hard reading filled with love, compassion and so much more.
A. Zavarelli… You really are a genius… Dayum… What a book.

Doc Steel by DL Gallie

A Bookworm Review by Ana


Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

True love is forever…and ever…and ever.

Have a look at the blurb:

Returning to civilian life isn’t easy for Griffin Steel, that is, until he runs into Autumn White.
She’s stunning, vivacious, and has that same spark he fell for twenty years ago. Until he ripped her heart out and took it with him when he enlisted.
Picking up the remains of her shattered soul, Autumn found love again, and life was great for a while.
Until it wasn’t.
Now she’s a single mom, finally getting her life together, and the last thing she expects is to run into the man who still holds a major piece of her heart.
The temptation is too strong as all those feelings Autumn had for Griffin, flare back to life.

It’s inevitable.


Everything they have been missing for the past twenty years, and more.

It’s perfect.

Until the father of her child returns. 
He will stop at nothing to reclaim Autumn and his son as his own.


Doc Steel full wrap


I’ve been reading her for a while now and each book has been my doom.
One thing good that leads me to read it is the blur. If it’s from an author that I adore o skip it and dig in, but if it’s one author that I hadn’t had the pleasure of reading before, I say the blurb can hook me up or not.
In this case, the blurb was my hook and I only had one though. I needed this book so I did what any sane person would do, I started it and oh boy…
DL Gallie is a new author to me and let me just say that I’ll be following her. Her author page has some interesting books that I must read.
Doc Steel is her latest release and explores the lives of Griffin and Autumn.
20 years ago, Griffin left the love of his life behind the minute he enlisted in the navy. When he made that decision he took Autumn’s heart with him and they had suffered tremendously.
But life continued and she found herself again but now, 20 years later he’s back and they are not the same kids they were.
This game had happened to both of them that changed them but can the spark that united than before lightening up again?
Sweet and intense. Those are the words that will describe this book perfectly.
It was a fantastic plot, engaging and sweet. It had a touch of suspense and lots of hot stuff.
It was a short and fast reading and I confess that I wanted more.
Each chapter made it impossible to stop reading and I wanted more.
The main characters shared and intense chemistry.
Overall it was a great story that I really needed to brighten my spirit.
Sweet and intense DL Gallie and I want more… More…

His (Ties That Bind Book 2) by Natasha Knight & A. Zavarelli

A Bookworm Review by Ana


Dark Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Darkness might surround you but the best way to escape it is to face your feelings…

Have a look at the blurb:

I’ve been in hiding for four years. On the run from the man in whose bed I once slept.

I saw something I shouldn’t have seen.
Took something I shouldn’t have taken.

And he’s just found me.

But it’s not just my safety I have to worry about. I have a little boy. His little boy. The secret baby of a Russian mobster.

He told me in no uncertain terms that I’m his. That we would be a family.

But his uncle still wants me dead and I know the man who’s been hunting me is the only one who can keep us safe.



Yes, yes, yes… It’s here… It’s here…
This book is here… Hell yeah…
Yeah, yeah, I know that I sound like I’ve lost all of my marbles, but do I care? Absolutely not… Lol
Since the moment the words The End appeared on my kindle in the last book that I’ve been painfully waiting…
How can you wait for the second book from a duet written by not 1 but 2 of your favorite authors?? You can’t… I mean you will wait but sad and anxious…
Natasha Knight and A. Zavarelli are the fantastic duo that I’m talking about…
Guys just get ready because their writing is hard, hot, wild, and freaking dangerous.
His is their latest release and it’s the second book from the Ties That Blind duet and it continues to explore the lives of Kat and Lev.
Kat and Lev let themselves get lost in each other. She knows that he’s not a saint but she hadn’t realized that the devil was near them. When she sees a brutal murder she ran away but after 4 years…
Stunned doesn’t even cover the way I was feeling when this book ended.
I was happy and sad at the same time.
Happy because it was an amazing adventure, but sad because it’s over… Why? I need more…
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, super dark and super intense.
And let’s not forget to hot stuff in there too. Oh boy… Let’s talk about chemistry…
Darkness surrounded the majority of the story but then we were presented with the best rainbow.
Darkness, crime, punishment, torture are very present in this book as well as love, loyalty, friendship, and complicity.
Some of the chapters put me into tears but then some scenes came up to out a smile on my face again.
I’m in love with this duet and everyone should read it.
Natasha Knight and A. Zavarelli created the best duet that you can’t miss.
It has all the things that can turn a book into something masterpiece.
