Untwist (Unbound Trilogy Book 3) by Kathy Coopmans

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Untwist

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Your nightmares might come true, but if you trully believe in yourself, you’ll survive.

Untwist Synopsis

I waited ten years to grasp hold of a woman I knew was too good to be mine.

Back then, I had failed her. But I knew, somehow, someway, unknowingly to her, I’d find a way to make it up to her.

All the years in between, I watched her from afar. Keeping her safe, protecting her from the shadows that crept in the deep, dark of the night.

Then, out of the blue, she unraveled me with one sweep of her innocent little tongue.

The woman drew me straight toward all her light.

Blinding

Intoxicating.

Mine.

It didn’t take long for me to come undone. Fall in love and change the course of my life.

Ellie Wynn had untwisted me from leading a lifestyle that should have never been mine.

Then fate gave us a crash course about how not all good things come to those who wait.

I’d failed her once again.

This time, her life is on the line.
I’m strung up because of it. I’m tumbling down because I should have known, the shadow that lurked in the night would steal her from me, in a blink of an eye.

And, now, I’m left to wonder how much can a person take before they break?

Nervous doesn’t even get to describe the way I was feeling when I started reading this book.
I was shaking all over. Anxious at the same time and a bit afraid.
I didn’t have a doubt about loving this book, no doubt at all, but I was scared of the outcome.
Kathy Coopmans has the ability to put a huge smile on my face in a sec or put me into tears in the next.
She has this power over me… Dayum.
But before I tell you a bit more about this new book, I need to tell you something.
This trilogy is not a standalone, therefore you need to read Unravel, Undone and only then Untwist. Don’t skip books. You can’t.
Like I said, Untwist is her latest release and it’s the third book from The Unbound trilogy. A trilogy you can’t miss.
This new book keeps exploring the lives of Logan and Ellie.
Had you know, these two love each other but the secrets they have is tearing their relationship apart.
In order to be together, those secrets need to be revealed, to be solved but at what cost?
I was… I was… I was… Speechless. That’s the word. Speechless.
This book just stole my heart. Heck, this trilogy stole not only my heart but my soul as well.
It was perfect. It was amazing. It was stunning. It was raw.
It was all of what you can think that makes a great story and more.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense. Each chapter was better than the latest and oh boy.
What can I say? How can I praise this book even more without spoiling? How can I tell you more about it without telling too much?
I can’t. I can’t.
This book will give you pain, suffering, madness, crime, drama, torture as well as unconditional love, friendship, loyalty, and desire.
The hot stuff is through the roof and will melt your panties. Just saying.
It was a joy to read this book. OK, it wasn’t all joy, it was hard to read some stuff, it made me cry and shake, but so worth it.
Kathy, you my dear are indescribable. You are amazing and your books have been a pleasure to read.
I want more. I need more.
So I must ask? Are you going to give Lane and Seth their own books? And how about Norah? Please…
Please say yes… Please…

Desperate to Touch (Hard to Love Book 2) by Willow Winters

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Desperate to Touch

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t turn your back to your heart…Just don’t…

Have a look at the blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

I ran from him, even though my heart knew better.
Love was one thing, but survival another.

He chose a life of crime. I never wanted any of it; I only wanted him. I left when the danger bled into my life, taking more than I was willing to sacrifice.
I should have known he’d come for me. Men like him always get what they want.
The temptation in his eyes, the heat of his touch . . . it’s all still there, but his gaze is harsher now and his grasp unrelenting.
He’s not the boy I fell in love with, although pieces of what we once had are still there. I can feel it.
I know what he wants from me, and I know it comes with a steep price. I’ll pay it though, if for no other reason than to touch him again. Just once more.
I’ll close my eyes and forget about the risks that come with this life and with him. I only hope he doesn’t do the same.

Desperate to Touch is book 2 in a series. Hard to Love must be read first.

DESPERATE

#MyReview:

I’m not even sure how to start this review. I mean, I love this author but I was so mad… In a good way of course. The way she ended the last book made me see red. I wanted to keep reading but no… I had to wait and then this book arrived.
Willow Winters is freaking amazing. Her books are to die for and this new series… Oh boy… This new series is awesome.
But I need to tell you something. This new book is not a standalone therefore you must read Hard To Love first.
This new book keeps exploring the lives of Laura and Seth.
Has you know, Seth is a powerful man. He had it all until the woman he loved runed away from him. Now she has crossed his path again and…
Laura got away, even though she loves Seth but what happened made her runaway. Now he’s back in her life and…
And… I’m mad… Once again this lady left me like this… Why? Why?
Seriously Willow?? You’re trying to make me even crazier than I already am right?
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and dark. Reach scene was meticulously written in a way that will make you feel whatever is happening… Jesus… It’s one hit after the other.
The web of betrayal and crime is so thick, that it left me shaking with rage.
Once I started to read this book I simply couldn’t put it down. The need to know more was so intense that made me keep reading and reading.
Jeez… The goosebumps… The shakes… The madness…
Let’s talk about two super stubborn characters… Dayum. Why can’t they see and accept what’s happening?
It was the continuation of an amazing story and I can’t wait for the final book.
Willow, please don’t take to long… I need to know how this ended.
I have so many questions that need answers…

Willow Winters

About the Author:

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!
Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

Undone (Unbound Trilogy Book 2) by Kathy Coopmans

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Undone

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t runaway. Don’t deny what your heart trully desires.

Undone Synopsis.jpg

Is it possible to make up for the way we have hurt others?
I wonder if it truly is.

Can we undo what has already been done?
No. We can’t.

I know for a fact, we cannot un-say words that have been bitterly spoken by a deliberate slip of a tongue.
Words hurt.
They sting.
They burn.

The truth is, I didn’t want to hurt Ellie Wynn, but I knew I would.

She was a temptation I couldn’t resist. An addiction that lived in my blood, and I wasn’t about to go in search of a cure.

Not when I needed her.
Wanted her.
Craved her.

There are no quick fixes to what I’ve done.
No pill to take away her pain.

All I have is the cold truth.

It’s brittle.
It’s brutal.
I’ll be damned if because of it, I let her slip away.

Undone Review.jpg

If you could have seen the way I was when the previous book ended you would see that I was a so freaking mad… Mad I tell y’all.
But don’t think that I was mad because the story wasn’t good… On the contrary, the book was superb but the way it ended… Let’s just say that this amazing author received a text…
So you can imagine the way I was feeling when I started to read this new book.
Kathy Coopmans is amazing and each book written by her will hook you up in a sec.
Undone is her latest release and it’s the second book from this trilogy. But I must tell you something. This book is not a standalone therefore you must read Unravel first and then Undone.
This new book keeps exploring the lives of Logan and Ellie.
Logan is used to having things fone his way and doesn’t take no or beg for nothing well that was before Ellie and now…
Ellie had suffered so much that she wasn’t ready to trust no-one until Logan approached her. After giving him a chance he betrayed her and now…
I was so mad… So mad that I wanted to scream bloody murder… Jeez…
Let’s torture me a bit more… Right? Right?
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense. It was insane the level of suspense…
This book just took my breath away. It made me dizzy with what went down.
Chapter after chapter, I saw myself wanting to keep reading and wanting to hurt someone.
I was caught up in this web of drama that it was hard to stop reading.
This book gives us betrayal, crime, torture, drama, madness as well as love, desire, friendship, family and so much more.
The hot stuff was sublime and will make you melt.
I’m still shaking.
Seriously Kathy? Why? Why?
I can’t wait too long for the final book. I need it now. I need to know more… Why did you end it like that?

Heart of the Mountain by Frankie Love and C.M. Seabrook

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Heart of the Mountain

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Nothing is what it seems…

Have a look at the blurb:

An angel.
It’s the worst rainstorm in history when I find her unconscious in the woods.
Sent from heaven.
She’s lost and alone, a newborn baby in her arms.
I will protect them.
My cabin is their shelter from the storm. Under my care, no one can hurt them.
Whatever the cost.
But I’m not who she thinks I am.
And if she finds out, she’ll keep on running.
My home is her home, my heart her heart.
And I sure as hell don’t want to break it.

Dear Reader,
Were you missing the mountains as much as we were?!
James is the virgin burly bearded baby daddy you’ve been waiting for.
Can you say that three times fast?
Try it.
A little louder now. Harder. Harder.
Yes. Yes.
Wait for it.
Ohhh, yessss.
Just. Like. That.
He likes it when you scream his name.
We like it when you come back for more. 🙂
Xo, Frankie & Chantel

#MyReview:

Jesus… These two are unstoppable… It’s one book after the other and I’m loving every page.
Frankie Love and CM Seabrook are the bombs. Their writing completes each other and I’m always left wanting more… More…
Heart Of The Mountain is their latest release and tells the stories of James and Marcie.
James loves his piece of heaven in the mountains. He wants to be left alone and seeks refuge there. One day, after a huge storm he finds a woman unconscious with a small baby in her arms. What will he do?
Marcie saw herself fighting and running to keep her niece safe. The need to survive put her in danger in the mountains…
Another perfect book, that’s for sure.
Sweet plot, very engaging and intense. It was sweet and hot.
You might think that everyone is against you but sometimes life sends you an angel.
It was short but with all the ingredients for a perfect story.
We had love, loyalty, desire as well as betrayal, crime, punishments, and darkness.
Sweet and oh so good.
Thank you, Frankie and CM. This book nailed it.

Always speak the truth because if you don’t…

Unravel Synopsis.jpg

I’m Logan Mitchell, and I hold many secrets in my greedy hands.

Women?

They bow at my feet. Do what I ask and come back for more.

But Ellie Wynn, I don’t want her bowing, I want her to kneel.

She thought our time together was one night, a twist of fate.

How wrong she was.

Ellie has been mine since the day I saw her.

Little does she know, it wasn’t that night. It was years ago.

Well before I even understood she was mine.

One taste, one touch, one kiss, and it wasn’t enough.

Not for me.

I’m prepared to fight dirty, and I plan to succeed.

Lies, deceit, and betrayal.

Intrigued?

You should be.

Unravel Review

If you could imagine the way I was smiling when I was about to read this book… You would think that I was crazy…
I was smiling so freaking hard because I simply adore this author.
She has been a constant in my reading life and her books are to die for.
Not only is she an amazing writer but also an amazing person. She’s that awesome.
Kathy Coopmans has a writing that will hook you up and will captivate your attention in a sec. Just trust me. Her books are raw, intense, amazing and with a few hot stuff into the mix.
Unravel is her latest release and it’s the first book from the Unbound trilogy.
This new book explores the lives of Elie and Logan.
Elie is used to grief. She had lost her parents at an early age and that left a huge hole in her heart. First her mother due to her illness and then her father in an accident. She had a night that she can’t forget but needs to forget. The mystery man will never see her again or so she thought…
Logan is what every woman wants and every man wants to be. He’s a walking sin. Rich and powerful that has the ability to take you to the other side. When the beautiful Elie enters his life…
OMG… I was so freaking mad when I ended this book… Mad…
Mad because it was over…
Mad because it ended the way it did…
Mad because I wanted to keep reading…
Why… Why???
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense…
Jesus… Once I started to read it I simply couldn’t put it down.
Secretes were being poured between the pages and the need to know more overpowered my ability to stop reading.
Scene after scene of intense feeling, of intense chemistry and lots of hot stuff. But not everything was a bed of roses because I saw myself being pinched by the thorns.
This book was the perfect beginning to a trilogy. It had suspended, crime, punishment, deceive as well as love, loyalty, and family.
Kathy… Why? Why did you do this to me? I need more… I want more… Please… Soon.
I can’t wait to grab the second book.

Hard to Love by Willow Winters

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Hard to Love

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t runaway…

Have a look at the blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

She was too good for this world. I was too far gone to push her away.

I grew up in this life, and now I run these streets. Blood and violence taint everything I touch.
Everything but her. She was my constant through it all.

Just a touch would singe and soothe.
Just a look would tempt and torment.
She became my escape and my addiction.
I only survived because she was by my side.

I should’ve known better than to indulge.
I should’ve known better than to let her fall for me.
It was only a matter of time before the danger bled into what we had.
I was Laura’s downfall. Problem was, she was mine too.

Hard to Love is book 1 of the Hard to Love, romantic suspense, series.

#MyReview:

I can tell anyone that wants to listen that I will read every single book from this lady and think it’s not enough. She knows what she’s doing. She knows how to capture our attention as well as our heart.
Willow Winters is the best. Her books are to die for and it’s Hard not To Love.
Her writing is raw and wild, intense and emotional with a touch of hotness and darkness. Just saying.
Hard To Love is her latest release and tells the stories of Seth and Laura.
I’ve been wanting to go to know more about Seth since the first book from the Merciless series. He’s that enigmatic. This book will let us know more about him.
Seth is always surrounded by a dark cloud. Being inside the drugs and crime business will make that to any person. He doesn’t think that he’s capable of loving someone let alone be loved by anyone until Laura.
Laura is struggling. From a young age, she was used to fighting for what she wants and to help the ones she loves. Her grandma was her everything and after her death, her world crumbled. She thought that the love of her life was going to be there with her but sometimes…
I was so freaking mad when this book ended… Mad I tell you… Why Willow? Why? Why?
This book was perfect until it wasn’t… Dayum… Why is it over? Why?
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense. Darkness surrounded every page and it was nearly impossible to stop reading…
It was page after page of suspense, desire, and darkness. Jesus… I’m stunned…
I said that I was mad, but not in a bad way. This author can’t write a story that I don’t love. She can’t.
Now I’m going to be insane waiting for the next one…
Willow… Oh, Willow… Why? Why woman? You’re lucky that I love you… Just saying…

Excerpt:

Prologue
Seth

On the west coast and several years before meeting the Cross brothers.

This hour of night, the floor-to-ceiling windows reveal nothing but black outside. Pitch black.  Inside, though, the lights shine brightly and keep everyone in this place invigorated.  The bass of the music thrums in my veins just as it lightly vibrates the hardwood floors beneath my polished oxfords.
Wrapping my hand around the steel rail that runs along the second-floor loft, with my office behind me, I watch the bright blue lights fade to nearly black in time with the beat.  Bodies sway, drinks are poured, and life moves on.
My bar is the hottest spot in all of Tremont.  The women, the money, all the shit that goes down in the back rooms—it’s all mine.  Everyone wants in those black glass double doors.  Thank fuck for that.  It took nearly a year to get my name back, to get the money, both dirty and clean, flowing easily without someone wanting me dead along the way.
A year of recovering from the damage that was done.
A year without her.
A year cleaning up the mess and taking care of shit that nearly broke me.  Between all the fights and all the drugs, none of it compares to what happened last year.  Two days until the date.
A gruff exhale leaves me as I force away the memories and focus on what’s in front of me.  The perfect location, the perfect setup.  The perfect fucking life I’ve been building.
The name of the bar mirrors every inch of what’s inside.  Allure.  It’s designed to lure in customers and to keep the drinks flowing, the hips moving, and the money streaming in.  The bar is seductive with polished black marble waterfall counters that gleam, their shine visible from all the way up here.  The deep cobalt velvet sofas on opposite sides of the seating area are just as enticing as the women who perch themselves there with crystal glasses containing pink cocktails in their manicured hands as they let out peals of feminine laughter.  Black crystal chandeliers drip from the ceilings.
Club Allure is about escaping from reality via luxury and illusions of grandeur.
The basement though… and the back rooms… those are the real moneymakers, all of it under the table, and how I earned the fear and respect that comes with my name.
It’s also what led to enemies.  You haven’t made it in this world until someone tries to take what’s yours. Until someone wants to challenge you. Until someone wants you dead.
I learned that hard lesson a year ago.  And the ones who came for me?  Their deaths didn’t go unnoticed by anyone else who thought they could take from me.
An eerie prick travels down my spine as my mind wanders to places in the past.  Back to when I was a different man.  Things change when the ones you love the most leave you.  Just as I think about everything that happened before this, just as the memories invade the present, I swear I hear her voice.
It’s only a memory.  She’s only a memory.  I remind myself like I’ve done so many silent nights, only to have my gaze drawn to the sound again.
The crowd doesn’t part for her; she blends into it, which is what she always wanted.
I see her though, and everyone else blurs as I focus on her alone.
My grip tightens on the rail and everything pauses around me.  My blood runs scorching hot.  Her dark brunette hair cascades down to her lower back.  In distressed dark denim shorts and a silk cream tank top that hangs low on her back, she makes her way straight to the bar. I watch as the corners of her lips turn up at recognizing the two men behind the bar.  They’ve been my crew since the first day… she was there too.
She was always there, always a part of us.
Connor sees her first, dropping the empty glass he’s holding on the counter to reach across the bar.  When he calls out, “Babygirl,” Roman looks up from the set of four shots he’s pouring and grins at her.
It’s too loud on this floor to make out everything they’re saying.  It’s all smiles and hugs, though.  Warm, friendly greetings.  It steals any heat I had and leaves a chill to settle over my shoulders, slowly wrapping its way around me as the time ticks away.
The two of them barely let her get a word in as they talk, but she laughs—fuck, I can hear that sweet mirth all the way up here.  Just like I can see the rosy flush in her cheeks when she agrees to take a shot with them.  Just like I can see the dip in her throat that I used to lick when she throws back the shot of clear liquid.
It’s been a year, but I swear I remember the way she tastes.
It takes a minute before she asks them something.  She rocks on her heels as she waits for an answer and both of the guys look around the first floor.
It’s when they point to Derrick that the hate creeps in.  That chill on my skin turns to ice and I decide I’m sick of waiting.
She asked for Derrick.  Not me.
My eyes are trained on her as I make my way down the stairs.  My jaw is set as it is, and I can’t change that fact for the world right now.  Past the masses dancing on the floor, I make my way easily to where Derrick’s seated in a leather wingback chair on the far edge of the wall where security is located.
A woman turns around, tall and slim, when I brush past her.  I barely notice anything about her except the short red dress that clings to her curves.  She smiles when she sees it’s me, her eyes hopeful but she quickly lowers her gaze and backs away.
Maybe it’s the hate in my glare that told her I’m not in the mood for these games tonight.
I’m barely contained, hardly capable of a single rational thought as that last moment I had with Laura runs through my mind.  The past and the present swirl in front of me, hitting me harder and more forcefully than the strongest cocktail I could drown myself in.
Laura plants a kiss on Derrick’s cheek… It’s short lived and her smile is sorrowful.
The anger that carved itself into a glower relents and dims.  Even a year isn’t enough time.  There will never be enough time passed to make it better.
Regret is my enemy.  Guilt its friend.
I’m standing there like a lion stalking his prey when Laura turns around, not looking where she’s going, brushing stray strands of hair from her face as she bumps right into me.
“Sorry,” she quickly breathes, and then she looks at me.  Her blue eyes have flecks of gold in them, and like a concoction of emotion they swirl as she stares at me.  Her lips are slightly parted, and they stay like that.  Open and waiting with disbelief.
“Laura.”  I say her name and feel the thrill of doing just that simmer in my blood.
“Seth,” she whispers.  Her shoulders drop slightly and then she covers herself, as if instantly cold.
“I um, I had something to give Derrick,” she tells me, but her eyes don’t stay on me.  They stray, unable to keep my gaze.  I watch the cords in her neck tighten as she swallows; I can’t help but notice how her hands keep nervously playing with the hem of her shirt.
“You afraid to see me, Babygirl?” I ask her lowly and that gets her attention. Those beautiful blues find mine and for a moment, I feel everything all over again.
The undeniable lust, the tormented love, and finally, the loss.  It all echoes in her doe eyes.
“Should I be?” she asks me, her cadence caressing.  Her teeth sink into her bottom lip as she holds her breath waiting for my response.  That lip I used to nibble as she moaned my name.  Lips that used to kiss me and only me.
“You should leave.”  I push out the words, feeling a wash of cold run over my flesh.  It comes back in waves, but the loss takes so much with it.
She swallows thickly with a nod and turns to leave without another word.  Her thick hips sway and my gaze stays pinned to her until she disappears behind the double doors.  She doesn’t look back.
She never did.
“You fucked up.”  Derrick’s deep voice carries over the beat of the music.  His eyes stay glued to the television that displays over eight feet of the white and blue bars of an equalizer, changing with the rhythm.
It mocks me.  The fact that everything in this place keeps moving, mocks me.
He takes a swig from his beer bottle, not bothering to look at me.
I have to close my eyes and breathe.  Without her here, all that’s left is anger.
I already know I fucked up.  I take in a steadying breath as my teeth grind together.
The music keeps going.  The women keep laughing.
My muscles twitch, consumed with a feeling of restlessness, the need to move, to do something.
“We both fucked up.”  Derrick’s remark makes me open my eyes.  Slowly and with a loathing for all of this, for everything I’ve built since she’s been gone.
“Boss,” Connor calls out, sliding a tumbler of whiskey over to me.  I stare down at the glass, remembering everything.  Watching it play out like a movie across the surface of the amber liquor.
Rowan calls out, “Boss,” at the same time as someone else, but all I can picture is the night she left.  The memory goes backward in time until I’m with her that morning, kissing her lips, feeling the dip of her waist.  The voices around me lower in volume until I hear “Seth” instead.
There’s never a minute.  Never a quiet moment.
If there was, none of that shit would have happened.
I hear her tell me she loves me.  I can practically feel her lips against the shell of my ear and the warmth that traveled down my shoulder that morning.
I didn’t know I’d never feel that warmth again.  I didn’t know.  But I should have.
It was all my fault.
With the single bellow of a roar torn from deep in my chest, I throw the glass in my hand recklessly at the flat-screen TV.  The glass shatters, falling like rain, crashing into the liquor bottles lining the bar.
Connor and Rowan have to duck and cover their heads as I seethe, drawing in a breath and then another.  I’d feel more remorse if she hadn’t spoken to them, laughed with them.  I’d feel guilty if she hadn’t given her smiles to them so easily, when she didn’t have a damn thing to give me.
I’m a bastard; I’ve always been a bastard.
“Get out,” I say and my command ricochets in the large open space. Stunned faces stare back at me, the bar silent save for the occasional tinkling of glass shards.  No one moves and that’s their mistake too.
“Get the fuck out.  We’re closed.”  The low threat isn’t hidden and a sea of women in short dresses suddenly start moving. No one looks at me for more than a split second as the patrons grab their shit and head for the door.
My crew stays where they are, their eyes on me.  All but Derrick.  He doesn’t look at me.  He takes a swig and stares at the broken TV as if it’s still a visual for the nonexistent music.  Even as Connor and Roman ask me if I’m all right, I watch him staring blankly at the broken glass.
“If you want to help me,” I begin as I finally look Roman in the eyes to answer him, feeling the rage subside but something else still lingers as I continue, “clean up this fucking mess.”
The two men who are some of my best friends look at me with sympathy.  I see it staring back at me in their eyes and it makes me grit my teeth.  With the sound of my blood rushing through my ears, I grip the collar of Connor’s shirt and bring the steadily spoken, low threat to his attention as I say, “Don’t ever let her in here again.”

#MyReview:

Do you know that feeling of wanting to read a book for God knows how long and you keep texting the author begging for it? Well, that was me for a couple of weeks now. I’ve been impatient for this book and you can imagine the way I was feeling when it popped up in my kindle… Excited doesn’t even cover it… I was ecstatic, insane, curious, anxious… You name it… And all at once.
This way you can see the impact this author have in me…
Marci Belle is guilty of all this… She’s amazing with a pen and you will see that in each book she writes. Her writing is sweet and beautiful, raw and intense with a few hot stuff into the mix.
Bully is her latest release and it’s the first book from the Devils of Eden series. This book tells the stories of Ziggy and Wren.
Ziggy saw herself in Vegas, alone and with a blurry vision. She doesn’t know where she is or what had happened… She can only see glimpses of a hunk of a man willing to help her out…
Wren is the lead security guard to a mogul. He’s flawless doing his job and doesn’t take shi*** from anyone. One night on the job and he sees this beautiful drunk girl on the floor. But he knows something that she doesn’t remember…
Oh boy… This was perfect.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense surrounded by a cloud of mystery and danger.
These two were made for each other, they were each other Kismet and it was beautiful to read about.
There were parts of the book that left me so freaking scared that I was fearing to keep reading but at the same time there were others that I wanted to get into the story and hold them or smack them if they kept that up…
Love, loyalty, second chances, and desire are very present as well as loss, betrayal, crime, and violence.
The hot scenes were hot as hell but the scary scenes were way too scary.
I loved every single chapter of it and I can’t wait to read the next one.
Marci, will it take to long? I want more… I need more from not only them but also from the new characters you presented us with.

About the Author:

A Southern California native living in England for just over a decade. I love to write about strong, inspiring females who aren’t afraid to show their weaknesses. If those strong sexy Alphas can’t grow to love them for who they are, then they don’t belong in my stories.

Some of the many hats I’ve worn have included writing about culture, fashion & beauty, promoting live music, owning

clothing boutiques, moving a lot and raising two stunning little ladies.

I love meeting people from other cultures and soaking up their goodness. I’m also freakishly obsessive about my creative projects. Also, I’ve become messier as I’ve grown older. Please don’t tell my mother.

A Single Touch (Irresistible Attraction Book 3) by Willow Winters

A Bookworm Review by Ana

A Single Touch

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Don’t fight it. Just embrace whta love has to give.

Have a look at the blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes the conclusion to the heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense trilogy, Irresistible Attraction.

Sometimes you meet someone, maybe meet isn’t the right word. You don’t even have say hello for this to happen. You simply pass by them and everything in your world changes forever. Chills flow all the way from the crook in your neck where you imagine he’d kiss you, all the way down, with only a single glance.
I know you know what I’m referring to. The moment when something inside of you ignites to life, recognizing their other half that’s been gone for far too long.
It burns hot, destroying any hope that it’s only a coincidence, and that life will go back to what it was. These moments are never forgotten.
That’s only with a single glance.
I can tell you what a single touch will do. It will destroy you and everything you thought you knew.
I felt all of this with Jase Cross, every flick of the flames that roared inside of me.
I knew he’d be my downfall, and I was determined to be his just the same.

A Single Touch is the third and final book of the Irresistible Attraction trilogy.
A Single Glance must be read first.

#MyReview:

OMG. OMG. OMG. I’m so freaking happy right now that I’ve texted the author the second this book entered my kindle…
Imagine this picture… Me working, at a private hospital I might had, and on my lunch break, I opened my kindle… Guess what happened? I screamed. Lol
Nuts right?
I am so freaking happy right now that I know if I start this book at midnight I’ll not be able to sleep. But guess if I care? I do not… Lol
Willow Winters has given me some of my favorite books of all times and this series has stolen my heart. Well, not just my heart but my mind to… Because the waiting time for this new book almost made me insane… Almost… I still have a few neurons working…
A Single Touch is her latest release and it’s the third and final book from the Irresistible Attraction series… Oh boy… What a series…
This new book keeps exploring the lives of Bethany and Jase…
But I need to tell you something, this book is not a standalone therefore you must read A Single Glance, A Single Kiss and only then A Single Touch…
If you’ve already read the previous books you know how book 2 ended… It was…
Amazing… Simply amazing… Dayum… I’m stunned and speechless.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense.
This series was amazing and this last book just culminated the entire series. Of course, that made me want more… More books about the remaining characters. I’m so curious.
This book has given us love, loyalty, family bonds as well as drama, betrayal, crime, addiction. It’s scary to see the things people are able to see in order to seek revenge… How can you be so cruel?
I saw myself reading chapter after chapter, seeking answers. One chapter I thought that everything would be alright and then bam it wasn’t… Dayum…
Willow you my dear are a genius and this series has stolen my heart as well. But I need to ask… Will you give Jenny her own book? How about Seth?
Please say yes…
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

A Single Kiss (Irresistible Attraction Book 2) by Willow Winters

A Bookworm Review by Ana

A Single Kiss

Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

Your mind can play tricks on you so you better trust your heart. No matter what…

Have a look at the blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

I should feel shame for not wanting this to end, but he doesn’t want it to end either.
When the darkness sets in, the flames all flickered out, and the loud click of the locks signal it’s over, that’s when reality comes back.
The war. The drugs. All of the lies that leave a tangled web for me to get lost in.
I don’t want any of it.
I only want him. Jase Cross. My enemy. And yet, the only person I trust.
With broad shoulders and a smoldering look in his dark eyes, Jase is a man born to be powerful.
I shouldn’t give him more power than he already has.
Jase Cross will be my downfall.

SINGLE_KISS2

#MyReview:

I’ve been counting down the days to read this book. Wanna know why? Because the way the last book ended… So many questions… So many fears… So manu doubts…
Willow Winters is a genius. Not only can she make you blush with some hot scenes but she can also put you into tears… Just dayum… She’s that good.
A Single Kiss is her latest release and it’s the second book from the Irresistible Attraction series… And what a series this has been.
But I need to tell you something. This series is not a standalone therefore you need to read A Single Glance first and then grab this one.
As you know, the first book tell us the stories of Jase and Bethany.
Bethany has only one goal to make the ones responsible for her sister’s death pay but at what cost?
So as I earlier said, this new book pick up right were the other left off…
OK… Seriously… Seriously… Why? Why?
It’s over… This book is over… And I’m mad… Oh boy… So so mad…
Superb plot, very well written, super intense, dark and so much more.
Each chapter made me even more nervous. But being curious as I am, I couldn’t stop reading. I needed to know… I needed to read more… And then bamm… The end appeared and I was mad… Oh boy…
This book continues to give us crime, secrets, darkness drama, envy as well as love and desire.
Your mind can play tricks on you so you better trust your heart. No matter what…
Willow… You’re lucky that I love you because the way you ended this…. Jesus… You’re trying to kill me right?
I need more… Please…

Kane (Cooper Construction Book 2) by Jen Davis

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Kane

Dark MC Romantic Suspense

I give this book 5 stars!

True love will beat all the odds…

Have a look at the blurb:

I know how it feels to lose everything—to watch my world crash down around me, unable to do shit about it.

I was a broken man when the Skulls took me in. They helped me pick up the pieces, became my family, earned my loyalty.

Then my past storms back into my life with spiky heels and an attitude to match, and my loyalty is tested. Amanda doesn’t just own the company I work for, she owns my heart. She’ll always own it, even though her betrayal sent me into hell in the first place

But being together now is not as simple as it was back then. We’ve both changed. After thirteen years, we’re worlds apart. I don’t belong in her world, and she wants nothing to do with mine.

Problem is, I don’t think I can let her walk away from me…not again.

#MyReview:

Oh my dear lord… I’m so happy right now… Wanna know why? Because I have a new book.
And guess the genre???  It’s an MC book… Hell yeah…
Has you could already realize I’m addicted to MC books. I’ve read my share fare of them and I can’t get enough.
Jen Davis has started a series that had the ability to grab my attention and after that I only want more.
Her writing is raw and intense, wild and dark with so much between each chapter.
Kane is her latest release and it’s the second book from the Cooper Construction Series.
I totally advise you to read Brick first. You’ll see why…
This new book explores the lifes of Kane and Amanda.
Kane might look the powerful man he his now but his past almost destroyed him. Thanks to his brothers, the Skulls MC, his life became better and he could heal. But you know that the past might come back to bite you in the arse…
Amanda works with her brother at Cooper Constructions. On the outside she looks like a bit*** but that’s just for show. She had lost some part of her heart thirteen years ago and now it’s hard to show her true colors. One blast from the past appears and…
OMG I’m so happy.. This book just made me so happy…
Perfect plot, super engaging, intense and surrounded with a cloud of danger and darkness. I’m so glad for the chance to read this book.
The chemistry the main characters share is do strong and beautiful that it doesn’t matter the danger lurking behind the shadows.
There were danger alright but there was also love and desire…
Crime, punishment, betrayal were very present as well as love, family bonds and loyalty.
It was amazing to testify the growth of the characters as well the chance to see them before and after. I wouldn’t change a thing but I sure as hell would write more about them.
What can I say… I’m a greedy girl.
Jen this series is getting great so much better and I can’t wait for the next book.
There will be a next one right?
