REVIEW: THE RAKEHELL'S SEDUCTION BY LAUREN SMITH

HE’S MADE A DANGEROUS WAGER
Ambrose Worthing is no gentleman. He’s a proud cold-hearted rake who’s determined to stay a bachelor forever. He enjoys bedding a different woman every night without the risk of falling in love. When he hears about a wager over the seduction and ruination of the daughter of his father’s best friend, he knows he must intervene. Committing himself to the bet, he agrees to seduce Lady Alexandra Rockford—for her own good. He never expected the lady in question to be a beautiful, fiery creature who has passions of her own that call to his guarded heart.

SHE’S VOWED NEVER TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
Alexandra Rockford has sworn off men, her heart still broken from the false promises of a childhood sweetheart who left her to marry an heiress. When she stumbles into Ambrose outside of a country ball, she knows the rake his trouble. His smile, his touch, his forbidden kiss are all too tempting but being with him would ruin her Determined to enjoy herself without falling in love, Alex can’t help but let her defenses down with the too charming rake. But when she discovers Ambrose is seducing her to win a bet, it will take everything Ambrose has to prove to her that he is worthy to love her.




I love the concepts of wagers and bets so this book was definitely for me. It was a quick amazing read. "The Rakehell's Seduction" is a perfect blend of humor, wit, and hotness. The author delivered a fresh story with a confident and feisty female lead and a charming notorious male lead.

Ambrose Worthing is a cold-hearted notorious rake who has sworn to stay a bachelor forever. He feels that one woman for a lifetime is not a good deal and knows that he can't stay loyal. He is charming rogue and women are always chasing him. So all in all he has everything yet there is something missing in his life.

Alexandra Rockford is a beautiful fierce girl with an intense passion. She has sworn off love after experiencing a heartbreak at the hands of her childhood sweetheart. She is determined to become a spinster rather than committing herself to a loveless marriage. 

This is the story of a wager gone wonderfully wrong.

Ambrose has accepted the wager according to which he has to take lady Alexandra's virginity publicly *harsh*. In a hope to find Alexandra, he makes his appearance in one of those balls where everyone is supposed to find their soulmate, fall in love and get married. There she meets a feisty lady to whom he is insanely attracted. Later he comes to know that she is the same girl whose virginity he is supposed to take. 

"I am destined to ruin her and break her heart in order to save her"

Alexandra (Alex)  and Ambrose are strongly attracted to each but Alex kind of hates him because of his hellish attitude and cheeky charm, yet, she can't resist him. Ambrose continues his efforts to seduce Alex but in vain. Alex's continuous attempts to trouble him is hilarious. Their regular banter is actually the soul of the story. 

As the story picks up the pace, the develop a strong friendship. With Alex, Ambrose didn't feel empty anymore. He realized that her light was overtaking his darkness. Their relationship nurtured with time. But what's a novel without twist and turns? The secrets unfold and the truth is revealed. 


What will happen when Alex will come to know about Ambrose's intentions? Will Ambrose be able to become the type of man that Alex deserves? Will Alex be able to forget her past and move on?

I really admired Ambrose's determination to win Alex's heart and make her fall in love with him. I loved how he tried to become a better man by correcting his mistakes. 

"You came into my life like a shooting star. That night we met… it changed me. I wasn’t whole, not until I met you."

Readers, if you want a good quick read, just read this book, it's really good and worth the time.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 

The plan …
