Mafia King (Royal Mafia Book 3) by Bella J.

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Mafia King

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t deny what you trully want. Fight for what your soul need and wants…

Have a look at the blurb:

Born and bred to rule, I embraced my place in our family with pride.

I was the leader. The boss. The king.

Fueled by my family’s need for revenge, I was on a bloody path toward vengeance. That’s when I found her—a filthy, weak, broken girl.

The mystery that surrounded her seduced me. Her secrets pulled me down to the deepest pits of hell, the demons of her past threatening to burn the empire I swore to protect.

Now the devil himself is knocking at my door, wanting his beautiful, broken girl back.

But she’s mine now. I claimed her. And anyone who dares to take her away from me will be completely, utterly, royally…

Fucked.

#MyReview:

Books, books, and more books… My life has been surrounded by books these past couple of years and the more I read… The more I want… Insane right?
What’s even more insane is that I used to hate reading…
If found out a few genres and like everyone, there are the ones that I love and some that I don’t like. But there are two genres that I can’t wait to devour… MC and Mafia… And oh boy… This author knows what she’s doing.
Bella J. has introduced me to this mafia series a couple of months ago and I was a goner from the first page. Not only the plots are amazing but the covers she chooses are stunning and hot…
Her writing is raw, dark, dangerous and hot at the same time.
Mafia King is her latest release and it’s the third book from the Royal Mafia Series and you really should read all books in order.
This new book explores the lifes of Antonio and Alessia.
Antonio is the king, an evil and twisted king that takes no prisoners, despite fighting the darkness sometimes it’s impossible to achieve… Used to rule and seek what he wants in order to protect his family it’s his goal. Don’t cross his path because if you’re on his bad side you’ll end up dead or worse…
Nessuno aka Alessia was taken against her will to be tortured and abused. She had suffered tremendously and was left to die. One day someone found her but will he be her savior or her executioner?
What the hell?? It’s over… The book is over… Why??? Why???
Seriously… I’m mad… I’m happy… I’m sad… Jesus…
The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and surrounded with the unknown…
The interaction between the characters was raw and intense. Each scene left me with the need to want more and more each time.
Once I started to read this book I couldn’t put it down. Things were happening in a way that made me devour this book in no time.
Now I’m mad… Mad because it’s over and I want the rest of it. The rest of it…
This book, resembling the other books from this series presented us with darkness, drama, violence, betrayal, as well as love, loyalty and second chances…
I’m stunned… Overwhelmed… Amazed… Dayum…
Seriously Bella….. Will we wait to long? Please say no…

Evan’s Encore: Meltdown: The Conclusion (Meltdown book 4) by RB Hilliard

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Shattered Rhythm

Romantic Suspence/Rock

I give this book 5 stars!

Your past is just that, your past so you can’t live your life thinking about what happened. Life is to short and true love is only one breath away.

Have a look at the blurb:

Evan Walker is living the dream. As Meltdown’s new keyboardist, he has finally found where he belongs. Unfortunately, his wife doesn’t share the same dream. When the band decides to take a break, Evan goes home, only to discover his reality is not as it seems. Unthinkable secrets are revealed, flipping his world upside down.

Quinn Kinley has lived a charmed life, but after suffering a terrible loss and her mother’s sudden move to Florida, she finds herself left with a bar to run and more house than she knows what to do with. She comes up with a plan: get a housemate.

He’s a rock star. She’s a country girl.

She’s looking for a housemate. He needs a place to live.

Love isn’t a consideration… but sometimes love happens when you least expect it.

#MyReview:

Oh sweet mother of mine… What can I do?? How can I slow down my readings when my favorite authors have new books coming out? I can’t and I won’t.
RB Hilliard is the bomb. She’s amazing and her books are to die for. Each book has a message that will melt your hearts.
Have you read any of her books? If you have, you know why I’m saying this but if you haven’t, I advise you to do so. In this particular case you should read Meltdown series first. Read Fractured Beat, Broken Lyric, Shattered Rhythm and then this new one.
Evan’s Encore is her latest release and tells the stories of Evan and Quinn.
Evan is the new keyboardist for Meltdown and a very good at doing his job. He had it all, fame, friends, family and a wife… Or so he thought. When the band decided to take a break…
Quinn had a beautiful life until she lost a part of herself and her mother decided to move to another town. Now she’s alone and needs help. She needs to be able to run her bar and to pay her bills so…
So good. So so good.
Perfect plot, superb writing, super engaging and intense. Each scene were meticulously described and made me feel like I was inside the story.
Once I started to read it I couldn’t put it down because things were happening and I needed to know more.
This book presented us with love, loyalty, friendship, dreams as well as heartache, betrayal, deceive and drama.
Sometimes we must see past the nightmares to find the blue sky and true happiness. Things always happen for a reason, the challenge is to fight the odds and conquer all battles.
Believe in you, believe in live and all pieces of the puzzle will fit.
RB… You rock woman. This book is perfect and made this series even more amazing. It was fantastic to have news from the other characters from the previous books but I’m sad. Sad because it’s over… But knowing you, I can be sure that another masterpiece is being created. Can’t wait.

Perception: A Bittersweet Romantic Suspense Novel by Kendra Leigh

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Perception

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

You can’t change the events of your past life, but you can change the way you feel about them. You can change your perception.

Have a look at the blurb:

Jackson Dean is a changed man—at least he thinks he is—but when a brush with the past leads him back into territory he’s long since left behind, he finds himself at war with his conscience. Snatching Savannah Harper from a Brooklyn street may have been okay with the wild and reckless guy he used to be, but what about now?

Savannah is used to a life of brutality at the hands of her husband, but being stuffed into the trunk of a car by a brown-eyed stranger injects a fresh wave of terror into her heart.

What transpires between Jackson and Savannah surprises both of them. Despite the unconventional way they’re thrown together, they form a bond that begins to challenge everything they know.

His Past. Her present. Their future.

Surrendering to the feelings they’ve unearthed will be a minefield, but it’s going up against the unknown that tests them to their limits.

As the lines between perception and reality blur, it appears that nothing is as it seems.

Perception is not reality… and reality can be soul-destroying.

Perception is a standalone romance suspense novel featuring a favorite character from The Bound Trilogy. If you enjoy reading stories about strong women and their journeys from victim to survivor, and the men who will go to any lengths to fight for the women they fall for, then you will love this #MeToo inspired heart-wrenching romance.

Discover Perception and the mysteries of love with this inspirational journey of empowerment today!

Due to the nature of the story, it contains subject matter which deals with domestic violence, including physical and emotional abuse, and may be triggering for some people.

You do not need to have read The Bound Trilogy to enjoy Perception.

#MyReview:

Stop everything… Don’t breathe, don’t sleep and listen to me. One of my favorite authors, that has been away from the book world for a while now, is back and I couldn’t be happier. She has been away and my heart was a mess because I missed her and I really missed her writing. The first books that I’ve read from her just stollen my heart and there was a secondary character there that I really wanted to hear more about and that book has finally it has arrived….
Kendra Leigh is the author that I’m talking about. She will stole your heart and you will let her…
Her writing is intense, dark with sparks of a bright light, with all the things that will make her stories the best.
Have you read the Bound Trilogy? If you have you know what I’m saying but if you haven’t I totally advise you to read them all because this new book will have bits and pieces of these main characters.
Perception is her latest release and tells the stories of Jackson and Savannah.
Jackson is the Chief of securities for his best friend Ethan for a few years. He’s a reserved man that had a past that keeps hunting him. Hoe can you move forward when there is things that keeps pulling you back? When he’s offered a side job…
Savannah is a shell of the person she used to be. When you live a sad life you can’t find happiness because when you do something will happen. Being in an abusive relationship can kill you slowly…
Dayum… Just Dayum… What was this? How can I say what was on my mind after reading this masterpiece? How can I say what is on my mind without spoiling?
This book just nailed it. The intensity portraited in each page left me anxious, speechless and overwhelmed.
The plot is superb, very well written, super engaging and intense. The darkness that surrounded it was overcome with a super bright light that warmed my heart.
The struggles each character endured might have killed someone but they overcome it and I can’t say more.
Hoe can you be yourself again when you think you had lost everything? How can you find the light when you’re surrounded by darkness?
The message passed to us was tHt in the darkness you can fight your straight so you must Fifi and never give up.
Kendra I’ve missed you so much. Your words are stuck in my mind, body and soul and I want more. I need more from you, more books to make me dream again.

Kendra Leigh

About the Author:

Kendra Leigh fell in love with words and reading as a young child. She was at her happiest when Enid Blyton whisked her away up into the magical lands at the top of the Faraway Tree with Moon-face and the rest of the gang.

Now, of course, she has more of a fondness for chocolate, cheese and hot men in suits – not necessarily in that order.

Kendra devotes her life to her devilishly handsome partner, scandalously beautiful daughter and cute as hell Shih-Tzu. She believes in love at first sight, and as well as writing and reading, Kendra has a passion for great movies and brilliantly written TV.

She enjoys writing emotional romantic suspense stories with strong female leads and men that will go to any lengths to fight for the women they fall for. Her books have a perfect blend of darkness and light.

Mafia Prince (Royal Mafia Book 2) by Bella J.

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Mafia Prince

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Can betrayal change who you really are?

Have a look at the blurb:

Being a Valenti can be a godsend…or a curse.

For me, it’s both.

There was a time when I thought I wanted a different life. A life with her. But that changed the day she left—the day she ripped my heart out.

Now I’m a heartless bastard with the tendency to not give a shit.

I live my life like a man with nothing to lose. Reckless, ruthless, callous, and consumed by darkness.

But she’s back, the woman who destroyed me. Only this time she’s one of them—the enemy.

She thinks she can play me, torture me by walking around in our world like she belongs here. But on these streets, I’m a fucking prince. I’ll ruin. I’ll rule. And I’ll start a goddamn war in this city.

Because Layla Moore belongs to no one…but me.

#MyReview:

Oh sweet mother of God…. This book is here and I couldn’t be happier…. I was expecting it since May when I ended book 1. Let me just say that I was almost, almost insane. Lol
Everyone knows that I love Mafia books and Bella J. knows what she’s doing.
Her writing is dark, wild, intense, forbidden and so much in between.
Mafia Prince is her latest release and it’s the second book from the Royal Mafia series.
But let me tell you that you need to read book 1 first because despite they are standalones you need to know this family from the beginning. Go for it and read Mafia Princess and prepare to be amazed.
If I told you, on my previous review, that the cover for book 1 was stunning, dayum the cover for book 2 is drop dead gorgeous.
This second book explores the lifes of Dante and Layla.
Dante was once the true gentleman that wanted to let everything behind, his money all of it for the love of his life but she had other ideas. After that, that sweet guy vanished and in its place born the ruthless guy we all know. He’s feared by many because being the mafia prince you exude power. After 5 years he can’t forget her and he just want to do so and to be able to destroy her as well but things…
Layla left the man she loved 5 years ago because secrets can be a pain in the arse. She was forced to do so but why?
Dayum if I thought that book one was intense hell… This one is way more.
The plot is superb, very well written super engaging and powerful. Each chapter graves my attention and I couldn’t put the book down. I needed to know more, see more, feel more and each page brought it.
The interation between the characters is raw and intense, full of secrets and suspense but the chemistry is there.
Therw were parts of the book that I wanted to get into in and slap someone. Dayum I needed answers.
This book presented us with love and hate, revenge and evilness, deceive and the hot factor is there. Oh boy…
Can secrets damage a relationship beyond repair? Can true love be erased like that?
Oh Bella… You nailed it girl. This series is freaking awesome and I can’t wait for more. Will we have more? Please say yes…

Unsteady by Elizabeth York

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Unsteady

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Can one lie break one bond so strong as true love?

Have a look at the blurb:

He was the only one for me.

When I close my eyes I still see the way he looked at me all those years ago. The way it felt to have someone so amazing in my life especially after my parents abandoned me. The bond that only a childhood friend could understand. He was my balance and never let me fall But I lied to him…

She was my better half.

I remember the fear she hid under her smile when I met her. There were so many adventures that we lived a hundred lifetimes in our minds. She was the reason I got up in the morning. She was my gravity and kept me grounded. But then she lied…

He kept my heart when I broke his.

I was never going to see him again. He would always hate me, even if he knew the truth. It would be better this way. If only he hadn’t kept my heart.

She threw my heart away when I wanted her to have it the most.

She ruined every memory that we made with a simple sentence. My life would be better without her. If only she hadn’t kept my heart.

At forty thousand feet the Earth shifted, and planets aligned. My world came into focus and for once I was no longer unsteady and ready to fall. As the wings of the plane drifted over the icy cold ocean my heart warmed when I saw him. Once I saw his eyes and the way he was looking at me I knew…

He was the balance I always needed

…And she was mine.

#MyReview:

I’ve been reading so many books this year that it’s almost impossible to keep up but I try so hard and I can’t give up. There are days that I say I’m gonna slow down but who am I kidding? I don’t really want to.
I’ve only read one book from this author but let me tell you that it was enough to make me a greedy girl. Elizabeth York’s writing is that intense and addicting. Her words can wake up feelings and turn you into a mess. Give her a chance and find out for yourself.
Unsteady is her latest release and tells the stories of Logan and London.
These two found each other when no-one was around. When you don’t have a family it’s normal to seek love and comfort in true friends and these two are it for each other until one lie tear everything apart. Years had passed and now they are near each other again but will it be the same? Can they pick up where they left off? Will it be the same?
Let me just say that I’m a mess, but don’t see it as a bad thing because it’s not.
The plot is beautiful, super engaging and intense, full of emotions.
It’s was amazing the way the story progressed because you didn’t know what would happen next. The secrets were killing me and that was super addictive.
This story presented us with love, second chances, mystery as well as lies, deceive and so much more. The chemistry between these two were hot as hell. Dayum… Let’s talk about some stubborn people…
Overall I loved it so much and I can’t wait for what will come next. Because there will be more right Elizabeth?
Gosh I hope so.

Mafia Princess (Royal Mafia Book 1) by Bella J.

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Mafia Princess

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Why follow the rules if being a rebel is so much fun??? But is your life worth the danger?

Have a look at the blurb:

Rules. I’m starting to think I have the natural talent for breaking them.

I hate rules. Always have. Especially since I had them shoved in my face my entire life.

I didn’t ask to be a Valenti. And I sure as hell didn’t agree to follow all their goddamn rules.

Yet it’s been years since I broke one of my family’s most cardinal laws. It was a mistake—I know that now. But that’s the thing about mistakes. You never know you’re about to make one until it’s too late.

Unfortunately, every transgression, every wrong decision has a way to demand atonement. No matter if it’s hours, days, or years after.

I’m still waiting for my past mistakes to exact payment. It’ll come. I know it will.

But now, while I’m sitting in the interrogation room staring at the sinfully gorgeous Detective Lorik Stone, I can’t help but think about all my family’s rules…

…and how I’m about to break another one.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

#MyReview:

It’s no news to anyone that I freaking love Mafia books. It’s a new genre that I found not to long ago but it was love at first sight. The darker the books are, the more I love them…
I’m new to this author but let me just say that starting like this I’ll be stalking her forever…
Bella J, like I said, is a new author to me and her writing just nailed it. It’s dark, it’s wild, it’s intense and forbidden. Oh boy… The cover is stunning and the blurb just caught my interest so I needed to read it and fast.
Mafia Princess is her latest release and tells the stories of Karina and Lorik.
Katina was born into the Mafia world. She’s feisty and a rebel always looking to break any rules she can. She’s fed up with this live but things are about to change… But for the better or for the worse?
Lorik is a detective following the Valentis family for years. He’s trying for years to dismantle this family but he wasn’t expecting Karina…
When these two meet sparks fly but they can’t be together… But will they listen?
Jesus… What the hell just happened? What a book… What a story…
The plot is amazing, super engaging and intense. Each scene left me breathless and nervous at the same time. Things were happening in a way that I couldn’t maintain calm… I wanted to keep reading and reading but I was always interrupted… Seriously…
The chemistry these two share is so strong and so wrong at the same time. But you know what they say right? The forbidden fruit is always the most desirable…
This book presented us with love, passion, desire as well as crime, darkness, drama. Just get ready to get into a crazy world.
Oh Bella… This book is amazing and I want more… Can we please have more?

Down and Dirty #2: A Bad Boy Romantic Suspense (Shameless Southern Nights) by J.H. Croix and Ali Parker

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Down and Dirty #2

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

You might think that everything is lost but you can’t give up. Fight for what you believe…

Have a look at the blurb:

Dive into a whole new world of deception, love and family with Shameless Southern Nights, a new contemporary romance series from USA Today Bestselling Authors J.H. Croix & Ali Parker

Losing the only woman who’d ever jacked my defenses hurt.

Life rolled the dice, and we lost. For now. I’ll do whatever is necessary to get her back.

Marie left to protect me, and I had no choice but to revisit my past, to try and set things right.

She and her son had become the ray of light in my life. I’d be damned if I let someone snuff out that light.

The more time I spent with her, the more I knew she held my heart in her hands. There were never enough nights with her, not when she owned me heart, body, and soul, and I intended to do the same with her.

A ghost from her past was playing games with her life, with her safety. I stared it down, determined to protect her, to make her safe once and for all.

*This is Book 2 of the Down & Dirty trilogy. You will have to purchase book 3 to continue the saga. The next trilogy, Slow and Steady will tell the story of Sonny, one of the other brothers.

#MyReview:

It’s here… It’s here… Book 2 it’s here and I can’t wait to read it…
If you are following my reviews you know that I love these two ladies and having the chance to read another book from them is like having an ice cream on a hot day…
Their writing is intense and beautiful with a touch of suspense and mystery… And don’t forget the hot part…
Down and Dirty book 2 out and continues to tell the stories of Jeremy and Marie. But I need to tell you something. This book is not a standalone therefor you should read book 1 first…
If you had read book one, you know that Jeremy and Marie had developed feelings for each other but Marie’s ex-husband is making their lifes a living hell.
How can you be truly happy when danger is just around the corner? How can you give yourself completely when you live in constant fear?
I can’t talk more without spoiling so I’m going to shut it.
This story was even more intense then the first book. The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and sometimes scary.
When I thought that things were going to be okay I was hit with a new development that made my head spin. Madness, craziness were lurking in each page and I must say that I couldn’t stop. I wanted to hurt someone but at the same time I wanted to hold them…
I want book 3 asap…. I need answers… I need closure… Seriously…

Down and Dirty #1: A Bad Boy Romantic Suspense (Shameless Southern Nights) by J.H. Croix and Ali Parker

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Down and Dirty #1

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t give up. You need to believe that better days will come.

Have a look at the blurb:

Dive into a whole new world of deception, love and family with Shameless Southern Nights, a new contemporary romance series from USA Today Bestselling Authors J.H. Croix & Ali Parker

A small town can hide many secrets. It can also expose every secret you have.

I’ve spent almost my entire life in Cypress Creek. My family was once a pillar of the community, but times have changed – for the worse.

One look at Marie Nix, and I’m determined to have her. She’s everything I want and then some. She may be too pure for me, but I can’t help myself.

Unfortunately, like me and our small town, she has skeletons in her closet. Her past isn’t staying in the shadows.

Regardless of the things she’s done, once I have a taste of life with her, all I want is more.

Even if it puts me face to face with the threats surrounding her, I’ll do whatever I have to in order to make her mine.

This is Book 1 of the Down & Dirty trilogy. You will have to purchase book 2 and 3 to continue the saga. The next trilogy, Slow and Steady will tell the story of Sonny, one of the other brothers.

#MyReview:

When I saw that an author, that I’ve been following for a while now, as a new series the only thought that crossed my mind was that I had to read it. No matter what, I had to read it so here I am.
I’ve been reading J. H. Croix books for a while and seeing that she was cowriting with another well known author was an amazing surprise. But I didn’t knew any work from Ali Parker but I had heard wonders about her so I needed to see for myself.
Their writing complete each other, the feelings behing each scene are so intense that I felt suck into it and couldn’t get away. You must take a chance with these two to see for yourself.
Down and Dirty #1 is the first book from this series and if this is just the beginning I can’t even imagine what’s about to happen…
This book explores the lifes of Jeremy and Marie.
Jeremy loved football and was very good at it back in highschool but an injury ended his dreams. Now he works in a contractor company, and just wants to be left alone. He’s into one night stands without attachments. Just plain desire and sex…
Marie returned to Cypress Creek with her son to escape her abusive husband. She’s tired of being abused and she just wants to raise her son in peace. One invite to dinner made her think…
And I’m done. I can’t say more… I want to but I can’t.
Do you know that feeling of wanting to read but the book was over??? I’m so freaking mad… I want more…
The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and intense. The story is surrounded by a cloud of madness, abuse that scared me but the love was so strong that pushed the cloud away… But it’s still lurking…
I’m overwhelmed with curiosity to know what’s about to happen…
J. H. and Ali… Oh girls… You nailed it… This series started perfectly and I’m dying to get the next book…
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

#MyReview:

Let me just say that waiting for this book almost drove me crazy. I mean it. The way the previous book ended left me wanting more and some answers but this author had other projects so the wait was loooonnng.
Terra Kelly has a place in my heart. Her writing is simple yet pretty detailed, super engaging and powerful with a touch of hotness into the mix.
Rescue This Aching Heart is her latest release and it’s the last book from the Falling Deep Into You Trilogy. And let me tell you that you have to read all books in order to understand this series better. Go for it.
This book explores the lifes of Vikki and Ricky.
Vikki is a nurse that lives and loves her job. She’s a feisty woman with a sassy attitude. She’s a firecracker.
Ricky is a retired cop that spends some nights playing with his band. He’s not a relationship kind of guy but something in Vikki calls after him. Because of her he get out of retirement to help solve a case.
This book started right where the second one ended, right after Vikki was found.
Omg how I missed these characters. I’ve had to read the first two books again because I wanted to remember every single detail and it was amazing. This new book just came to reinforce my love for this series. So many answers were given but new ones emerged.
The plot is superb and super intense, full of suspense and unknown. The interation between the characters is raw and amazing and you will fall in love with them. Each chapter made me feel nervous, or happy, or mad… Things were happening and I couldn’t stop.
This book presented us with crime, punishment, deceive, madness as well as love, friendship, desire and sexiness.
Get ready for this because you can’t imagine the turmoil you’re about to enter…
Terra you are amazing… This series is freaking awesome and I want more… And seriously…. We have to wait till next year to get more?? I don’t think I can handle it…

Worshipped (The Worshipped Series Book 1) by Brie Paisley

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Worshipped

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

You might wanna give up but you really can’t. Give love a chance and you’ll be surprised.

Have a look at the blurb:

Trying to move forward with my life, I’m putting the past behind me. Surrounding myself with my best friend and work, I focus on living life the way I want. That’s until fate steps in and shows me something that I never knew I needed.
The encounter with Isaac was purely by chance.
The date with Conner was very much planned.
Both men give me more than I ever thought possible, and I’m beginning to realize that I could never live without them. Our relationship is unconventional, but nothing else matters now that they’re mine.
The only problem is our pasts refuse to stay where they belong.
Mine threatens to rip apart everything I’ve fought so hard to overcome.
Isaac and Conner’s threaten to take away the life we’re slowly building together.
Even with all the obstacles and doubts around us, nothing will stop me from protecting the ones I love.

#MyReview:

Oh my sweet lot I had this book on my Kindle for so so long but other books kept coming and coming and end result! I left this one hanging. Shame on me …
I’ve only read one book from this author and because of that I knew that I would love this one even without starting it.
Brie Paisley has a simple, appealing, detailed and very naughty writing, it’s just how I like it…
“Worshipped” is the first of a trilogy and if the other books are like this one, oh boy, they are so good. This book is told by Riley’s perspective.
Riley is determined to get pregnant but life has been unfair because she’s trying for more than 4 years and no such luck. After disappointment after disappointment she can’t fight anymore and would rather give up than try again and fail. When she meets a mysterious man she can’t resist his charm but when she finds herself drawn by two men at the same time, her world is turned upside down. Will it be possible to hold our heads high and move on? Can a broken heart recover and find love again? Will it be possible to trust someone again?
My god I wasn’t expecting this, the story took place in a way so intense I almost couldn’t take it.
The plot is superb, Very well written, super engaging and intense.
My god the suspense, crime, evil are present as well as love, loyalty, complicity and eroticism. My Blessed Mother the scenes are so hot and so good that I almost exploded. I loved what I’ve read and I can’t wait to read the next book.
I’ve reread this book and my thoughts hadn’t change, I mean I got even more in love with these three that I can’t wait to reread the other two books.
Brie you know that I love your books, because I’m always nagging you with messages but I just need to shout to everyone that they have to read all your books. You rock.
Now let’s see what changes you’re about to do to book two.
