Review: Damaged Locke by Victoria Ashley & Jenika Snow

Aston Locke
Whispers of the Locke brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherfuckers believe they know about us.

That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear.

Maybe they’re not wrong about that.

That is, until I set my sights on Kadence King, getting just as drawn to her as I am the darkness. It’s the first time I’ve felt anything in a long time. 

But would she really be scared knowing the depth, the lengths I go with my brothers to make any fucker who crosses us pay? 

I need a woman who can accept me for who I am.

For what I am.

I’m hoping like hell it’s her, because I want nothing more than to claim her as mine…

Kadence King
I know Aston’s dangerous, know people fear him. But I want him. I’m drawn to him, just as he’s drawn to the darkness.

I should be afraid of him, should turn the other way, but I can’t. I’ve gone mad and let him in my room, in my life, allowing him to consume me. 

He possesses me, dominates me. Aston Locke shows me what it means to want to be claimed by him and only him.

And when he tells me I’M HIS, I have no doubt that’s the truth.

Because in the end it’s what I want too.

No matter how dangerous he is…

Hotness alert!! Yes guys this one was damn hot with the dangers lurking around.

The story introduces us to Aston, one of the infamous Locke brothers. He is tall, dark and handsome and all ruthless.

"I’m Aston Locke, a mean motherfucker that you just let all up in your space.”

Everyone fears Locke brothers especially Aston Locke, he is all fucked up. If you want to be safe stay away from him.

"I crave the challenge like I crave the darkness."

Enters Kadence, soft, sweet and a complete opposite of Aston. But she has her own demons and Astons's presence makes her  feel safe. Where he is dark she is all light and she is exactly what he needs.

"I’m flirting with danger, playing with fire right in the palm of my hand."

Kadence is fascinated with the youngest Locke. She even gets more curious when he sees him doing one of his job but she has no idea of what lies ahead.

"Maybe I’ll feed her curiosity and give her a small taste of the youngest Locke.
I’m pretty sure this will be the last time she leaves her bedroom window unlocked and opened for me."

Their first meeting is oh my intense, downright erotic even dark and full of secrets. He is infatuated with her and now he wants her. He needs her like he needs air to breathe.

"I need you, Kadence. I need us. Tell me you want the same.”

His darkness calls to her. She wants him like she has wanted no one else. She craves him and now she has him all of him.

"This is only the fucking beginning. You’re mine. Only mine.”

I loved the plot and characters... The writing style was amazing and full of emotions, I felt Everything. I felt the hate, the love, the dangers.

"I found my way here. So here I am. Here with you under the stars.”

The only thing I didn't like was that the story was rushed. It had a great plot but everything was rushed. I was expecting some action and adventure but that was also too quick. It came and went and I was like what the fuck did happen? So I would have liked it more if it was a bit extended and detailed with not that insta lust/love. But all in all it was a good quick read.

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

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.

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.

REVIEW-- A Dress the Color of the Sky by Jennifer Irwin

For too many years, Prudence Aldrich has been numbing the pain in her life with random sexual encounters. Her marriage to cold, self-centered Nick is, not surprisingly, on the rocks. But after several dangerous experiences with strangers, Prudence finally realizes that she needs therapy to stop her self-destructive behavior, and so she checks into the Serenity Hills rehab center.

Prudence blames herself for her irresponsible behavior and is filled with self-loathing. She’s convinced she’s totally at fault for Nick’s manipulative attitude and that, with therapy, she can return their relationship to its idyllic beginning. However, her therapist and the other members of her rehab group see the person behind the pain. As Prudence learns more about herself and the reasons for her behavior—including startling revelations about her childhood—she begins to understand the basis for her lack of sexual self-respect. She also learns that she’s not entirely to blame for the failure of her marriage.…

Review: Detached by Tanner Lutheran

In this vivid, ever-changing literary fiction, characters come to life as Zachary Byrd runs from a tragic accident and aimlessly sets off across the country. Not long after hitting the road, he gets lost but quickly finds himself in the middle of someone else's tribulations. To Zachary, his journey is an eye for an eye-to save one life and make up for one life and make up for another he may have stolen. He obsesses over tipping the scales until he risks his life to rescue Astrid Mavis from hers. From the trenches of train yards to bus stations, they never stay in one place too long, learning from the rich bonds with others along the way until they finally name a destination as far away from home as they can go. When the smoke clears, all that's left is a note- A note that will change everything.

Review: Every Time It Rains by Nikita Singh

Love is a dangerous thing. It brings with it great joy, and opens you up to pain. But does one really have the courage to say no and look the other way?

Laila is yet to recover from her painful past. Hurt, and untrusting of love, she is fully immersed in work, her only source of cheer. Her bakery franchise is very popular and she just might be able to go national, if she can pull off that big deal.

Just when things are looking up, along comes JD, an impetuous, free-spirited creature to stir up the calm. He's her exact opposite. Laila s self-destructive, he s life-affirming. She s cautious, he s buoyant. But here s the thing: he makes her feel the very things she wanted to forget. Stirring a familiar passion she longed for but had lost the courage to pursue. 
They are irrepressibly drawn to each other but will she ever be able to trust him? Every Time It Rains is the story of every girl who has ever had her heart broken. And fallen in love again.
