Blog Tour & Review: Survival Of The Richest by Skye Warren

SurvivalOfTheRichest-Facebook (1)
The Cover:  The Survival Of The Richest cover is so gorgeous! I love covers with couples and gorgeous men but there is just something extra special about romance book covers with on them and Survival Of The Richest is definitely one of my favorites. 

Basics:  Survival Of The Richest was on June 12th 2018 and is 354 pages long. Genre wise  Survival Of The Richest belongs to contemporary romance, drama. 

Description: A Park Avenue princess…

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan’s harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy, the son of my mother’s latest husband. Instead he protects me with fierce determination when I need him most.

This tale begins with a fall, but it doesn’t end there.
Because another man wants me.

Sutton wants to consume me with a passion more feral than kind. In the lush emotional wilderness I’m not sure I want Christopher to save me this time…or if there will be anything left if he tries.

SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST is a book about finding your soul’s desire, even if the search leads you places you never expect. A woman torn between two men. An impossible choice. And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.

Overall thoughts: How do I even begin to describe Survival Of The Richest? Wow doesn’t even begin to cover it. Skye Warren pulled me in engrossing storytelling and made get me on an emotional rollercoaster that me crashing at the end. In a good way! My favorite thing about Skye Warren as an author is the way she writes her characters backstories; they are well done, well written and just fit into the narrative of her books. They aren’t confusing at all and add even more depth to her story and characters. And man…does she make a backstory for Harper. 

A torn apart family, a sad and lonely little girl pulled back and forth between parents, more money than you can imagine and a twisted twosome falling for another is what you can expect in Survival Of The Richest. Necessarily not in that order. To make matters even MORE complicated, Harper starts developing feelings for a man close to Christopher and I’m not going to spoil anything but HOLY COW. Things get so complicated, like nail biting complicated. 

 Survival Of The Richest ends on a cliffhanger unfortunately but I can’t wait for more of this crazy, rollercoaster love story! Skye Warren is definitely one of authors that comes out of left field and continues to surprise and awe me! Can’t wait for more of this series!

Review: The Queen Of All That Dies by Laura Thalassa

21422225.jpg
The Cover: I love this cover and I think it embodies Serenity perfectly I just wish the scar on her face was shown. Otherwise it’s perfect and I’m glad the cover showcases such a strong, elegant woman. A+

Basics: The Queen Of All That Dies was released on January 15th 2016, published by Burning Ember Press and is 327 pages long. Genre wise The Queen Of All That Dies belongs to science fiction, new adult, fantasy drama, romance, action,  dystopia and futuristic.

Description: In the future, the world is at war. For the last decade, King Lazuli of the Eastern Empire has systematically taken over the world. No one knows much about him other than a series of impossible facts: he cannot die, he has not aged since the conflict began, and he wants to rule the world.

All Serenity Freeman has known is bloodshed. War has taken away her mother, her home, her safety. As the future emissary of the Western United Nations, the last autonomous region of the globe, she is responsible for forging alliances where she can.

Surrender is on the horizon. The king can taste it; Serenity feels it deep within her bones. There is no other option. Now the two must come face to face. For Serenity, that means confronting the man who’s taken everything from her. For the king, it means meeting the one woman he can’t conquer. But when they meet, something happens. Cruelty finds redemption. Only in war, everything comes with a price. Especially love.
The Queen Of All That Dies.jpgOverall thoughts: The Queen Of All That Dies is everything you would want in a good science fiction/dystopian/romance/action book and more. Based in the future where the world is at war, Serenity Freeman finds herself torn between wanting to serve and protect her country against sacrificing her own life and morals for her country. Bit of a double edged sword right? Raised as a soldier and groomed as emissary by her father, Serenity finds herself going against the devil himself, proclaimed King of the world and reason why the world is in ruin, Montes Lazuli. Her homeland is at the end of their rope and wants to send Serenity to the King to essentially seduce him and keep his focus on her instead of the peace talks. Everything changes when Serenity and Montes meet and nothing goes like Serenity had planned.

The Queen Of All That Dies is a gritty, fantastical, action packed, science fiction, futuristic dark romance book. Serenity is very young, but she’s been fashioned to be a killer all her life. Montes may be the King of the world but he’s isn’t a good man (he actually says this several times throughout the book,) but he wants Serenity desperately. What happens when two lonely lost souls meet and come together? A whirlwind of a book! The Queen Of All That Dies had so many wonderful components to it. First you have this sort of , intriguing,  passionate, angry and lonely characters pulled together with different dynamics that honestly had me immediately hooked because I wanted to know how they would work together. Secondly throughout the first half of this book, you have Laura Thalassa throwing curveballs left and right about Serenity that literally had me gawking at my kindle because I was so taken aback. No spoilers, but I was so invested from start to finish! 

Couple wise Serenity and Montes are very interesting because it’s not your usual typical romance, its darker. Serenity clearly hates Montes because one, he’s the King who started all this war and devastation and two, unfortunately for him…he’s also the reason why so many bad things have happened to Serenity. Montes may be the wicked King who devastated and ruined the world but because of that role he has taken, he’s incredibly lonely. So when he sees Serenity he’s completely taken with her whereas Serenity hates him but is also interested in him too. Meeting him and seeing him in person is completely different than the monster she put him out to be which makes her conflicted feelings about him even more. Above everything, Montes and Serenity are cut from the same cloth which he immediately states to her upon their first meeting. She may not want to agree and tells him off, but she knows the truth. Two dark, lonely, wandering souls have been brought together and consequences will follow.  

The Queen Of All That Dies is one of my favorite books of 2018 and was such an unexpected surprise. Laura Thalassa is a truly talented writer who is so great in creating complex, deep characters and storylines that just have you hooked from start to finish. For me I like something a little more intense and darker and The Queen Of All That Dies definitely delivered that for me.

Release Blitz & Review: Him & I by Melody Eve

Him&I-FINAL-ebook

The Cover: I really love this cover. It’s eye catching, sweet and super intimate. A+

Basics: Him & I was released on June 3rd 2018 and is part of the Kindle Unlimited program. Genre wise Him & I belong to contemporary romance. 

Description: Love is a risk.
Roman has never been willing to take those odds, until now.
A beautiful stranger, overheard telling the desk clerk she’s on her honeymoon alone, arouses something in him. Something primal. Something protective. He finds himself doing and saying things he swore he never would in an effort to understand the pain in Aria’s sensual eyes.
His scars are so deep, they may never heal.
His need for control is ingrained.
His desire for her is unparalleled.
The challenge of winning her may be the biggest risk of all.
Him&I-AN.jpg
Overall thoughts: Him & I had all the interesting, swoon worthy aspects of a good romance book but it lacked in several areas. I felt the beginning was a great opening and immediately had me hooked/wanting to know what was next but it was super rushed. I’m all for two characters quickly falling in love but the way Aria and Roman started off just didn’t make sense to me and was super unrealistic. To be fair, it is a romance book and there are a lot of romance books were similar things happen like in Him & I but there was just something off and lacking with this one. 

That being said, Him & I is a great story about starting over and falling love. It is well written but there were some gray areas where I wish more there was descriptive writing. Roman is every romance readers dream even with his secrets and rough edges, he’s funny too which I always appreciate in an alpha male. Aria is very likeable and interesting, a great heroine any reader would admire; plus her last name is Savage I mean come on!

Overall Him & I by Melody Eve was a great debut romance read but definitely needed some fine tuning here and there. Eve has a bright future ahead of her and I look forward to watching her grow as a writer.

Release Blitz & Review: Mogul by Katy Evans

Mogul Amazon-2 (1)The Cover: I love this cover! Nothing better than a handsome man staring you down with a fierce, determined expression on his face and he is reminds me of Ian’s intense aura too! The cover of Mogul is perfection! 

Basics:  Mogul was released on May 31st 2018 and is 252 pages long. Genre wise Mogul belongs to standalone and contemporary romance. 

Description: He’s my most delicious secret. 
The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening. 
I didn’t know anything about him, not even his name. 
Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked. 
We met in room 1103. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul. 
The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him. 
I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch. 
I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I’d ever find him. 
Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again. 
He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table.
Because he has a secret. One that’s a deal breaker for me. 
My Suit has a name.  Ian Ford. And this is our story.
*Mogul contains characters from Tycoon, but is written to be read as a standalone.*
Mogul-Teaser3-AN.jpg

Overall thoughts: What a complete and utter whirlwind Ian and Sara’s story was! From start to finish I was blown away by their love story. Mogul had a stark pace that was completely different from Katy Evans usual style of slow burning romance couples in previous books. That being said, I really enjoyed it! There wasn’t any filler or getting to know each other, Ian and Sara met and literally were in each other’s arms hours later. As I stated before, different from Evans usual style of writing but it was such a fresh change! 

Sara and Ian were meant to be together, oh my goodness these two make me melt and smile! I completely adore them! Their love story might not be conventional but it is definitely epic. One of my favorite aspects of Katy Evans’ books is how she creates these characters with backgrounds and stories that you can relate to and you can see yourself in their shoes. Her characters may be fictional, but the way she writes them I feel as if I know them personally. 

Ian is very, very hot; the man knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to say so either. He’s facing his own personal issues and seems to only want a casual thing with Sara but Ian shows this vulnerable side too. Sara isn’t the only one who is afraid of getting hurt and it was nice to see that side of a male character because I don’t think it’s written or shown enough. Men may not like to show all different sides of emotions but they have to them and do deal with them. 

Mogul will probably be my favorite standalone of the year. It’s definitely not a slow burning book and it’s very fast paced but I loved it from start to finish. Sara and Ian have an epic kind of love that I won’t forget about for a very long time.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. In January of 2018 we decided it was time to close our doors. Top Ten Tuesday now lives with Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.divider 3

For this Top Ten Tuesday I’m focusing on my top picks for the best books I’ve read so far this year! 

10. Escort by Skye Warren
escort.jpg
Blurb: There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.
I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that . . . she’s a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction. But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

My thoughts: This was my first Skye Warren book and I was truly blown away by how talented she is. I loved the story and Escort took a hold of my heart and ran away with it! Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#9 Sinner by Sierra Simone
29197206_2069527846660541_4480355144105459712_o
Blurb: I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be.  I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.

What do I believe in?  Money. Sex. Macallan 18.
They have words for men like me—playboy.  Womanizer. Skirt chaser.

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.
Sinner.

My thoughts: Sierra Simone is one of the best writers in the romance genre book world period, so it’s no surprise that Sinner makes the list! A mix of enthralling, sexual energy with emotional ties Sinner is definitely one Sierra Simone’s best. Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#8 Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas
Teaser-1 (2)
Blurb: JORDAN: He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.
He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.
He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.
I have to stop this. It can’t happen.
My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.
Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. I am.

PIKE: I took her in, because I thought I was helping.
She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.
As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.
The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.
But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.
And her boyfriend’s father.  
Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.
*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.

My thoughts: Maybe it’s because there’s an age difference in my marriage but I am complete sucker for age gap romances. Especially forbidden ones too. The plot was super interesting with a touch of drama and of course lots and lots sexual tension. Douglas’ sense of humor is great too. Definitely one of my favorite age gap difference romances ever.  Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#7 The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle 
s1
Blurb:  I never believed in fairy-tales. Never held out for Prince Charming.
Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my dusty doorstep.At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade. Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.
Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.
I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.
I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.
When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?
Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?
The Swedish Prince is a standalone romance inspired by Roman Holiday.

My thoughts: Besides the horrible cover, I really loved The Swedish Prince. I’ve been trying to expand my reading with authors and this was my first Karina Halle book! She’s funny and has a different sense of writing style than what I’m used to that I really liked. Her characters have this crazy, magnetic chemistry that made me fall head over heels for them! Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#6 Blood Oath by Raye Wagner & Kelly St. Clare
blood oath
Blurb: Everything I know is a lie.
I’m an ordinary mortal girl. Lord Irrik is a depraved dragon shifter. King Irdelron is an immortal tyrant. In the disease ridden land of Verald, life is mapped out much like the established rings of our kingdom. Everyone has a role…
Me? I’ll be uselessly serving potato stew for the rest of my life because I can’t make anything grow. But starvation brews rebellion.
When the king strikes, I’m captured by Lord Irrik. Instantly, I’m embroiled in a deadly game. One where I’m desperate to understand the rules. Because nothing makes sense anymore. Now, I’m not only fighting for my life . . . but a love that could be the key to my freedom. What if the truth means you’re not who — or what — you thought you were?

My thoughts: I’ve been really getting back in YA/Mature YA and thanks to Kindle Unlimited I found Blood Oath and was just blown away! I love romance books so much, but there is nothing better than a good YA/Mature YA, fantasy, romance read! Definitely one of my favorite reads of the two and I loved the second book, Shadow Wings too! Check out the buy links below and links to both of my reviews!

#5 A Court Of Frost & Starlight by Sarah J. Maas 
A Court Of Frost &amp; Starlight
Blurb: A companion tale to Sarah J. Maas’s #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series that takes place several months after the explosive events of A Court of Wings and Ruin Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this story bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series. Feyre, Rhys and their companions are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated – scars that will have a far-reaching impact on the future of their court.

My thoughts: There was A LOT of thoughts (both good and bad but mainly bad to be honest) on A Court Of Frost & Starlight but I really loved it. I thought it answered a lot of lingering questions from A Court Of Wings & Ruin, wrapped up things nicely for Rhys and Feyre and set things up for the future books. Also, it was a NOVELLA and just some of the reviews I read were just ridiculous to me, you are going put out that much negativity for a novella? Really? Craziness. Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#4 Pestilence The Four Horsemen by Laura Thalassa
pestilience
Blurb: They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all. 

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed. Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed. 

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him. 
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she’ll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.

My thoughts: Pestilence was another book I found on Kindle Unlimited and OH MY GOODNESS. Again, I was completely blown away! Apparently 2018 is the year of getting back into science fiction/fantasy books again because Pestilence was EVERYTHING. I seriously need the second book War RIGHT MEOW. In all seriousness though, if you love science fiction, fantasy, post apocalyptic books with romance mixed in, Pestilence is for you. Check out the buy links below & the link for my review!

#3 Filthy Gods by R. ScarlettFilthy Gods
Blurb: Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them. And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.

As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.

The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.

Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.
I’d sworn I’d never give him the upper hand, until…
The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?
He just discovered it…and now he has all the power.

My thoughts: Filthy Gods is a novella and the prequel for the Filthy Gods series. This was my first R. Scarlett book and before I heard nothing but good things and dang, she did NOT disappoint. Scarlett is an amazing writer that completely transported me into the world of the Filthy Gods and I am honestly so hyped for the rest of the series!

#2 The Fallen World series by Laura Thalassa
Untitled
Blurb: In the future, the world is at war. For the last decade, King Lazuli of the Eastern Empire has systematically taken over the world. No one knows much about him other than a series of impossible facts: he cannot die, he has not aged since the conflict began, and he wants to rule the world.

All Serenity Freeman has known is bloodshed. War has taken away her mother, her home, her safety. As the future emissary of the Western United Nations, the last autonomous region of the globe, she is responsible for forging alliances where she can. 

Surrender is on the horizon. The king can taste it; Serenity feels it deep within her bones. There is no other option. Now the two must come face to face. For Serenity, that means confronting the man who’s taken everything from her. For the king, it means meeting the one woman he can’t conquer. But when they meet, something happens. Cruelty finds redemption. Only in war, everything comes with a price. Especially love.

My thoughts: Once I finished Pestilence by Laura Thalassa I needed more of her magical books so I borrowed The entire The Fallen World series through Kindle Unlimited. I was not prepared for how fast and hard I fell for these books. Serenity and Montes are one of the best couples I have ever read about and honestly I don’t think three books were enough to do them justice! Again if you love science fiction, fantasy, post apocalyptic books with romance mixed in, this book series is for you! I haven’t written an official review yet (I want to read them again!) but definitely check them out with the buy links below!

#1 Mogul by Katy Evans 
mogulBlurb: He’s my most delicious secret. 
The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening. 
I didn’t know anything about him, not even his name. 
Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked. 
We met in room 1103. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul. 
The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him. 
I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch. 
I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I’d ever find him. 
Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again. 
He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table.
Because he has a secret. One that’s a deal breaker for me. 
My Suit has a name.  Ian Ford. And this is our story.
*Mogul contains characters from Tycoon, but is written to be read as a standalone.*

My thoughts: It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that follows this blog that my #1 pick for the Top Ten Books of the year so far is Mogul by Katy Evans. Mogul was just so different from her other books and I really, really loved the change! It was still Katy but just different. Definitely one of my favorite standalones and a book you need to put on your TBR!

Monthly Series Mention: The Stage Dive Series by Kylie Scott

Sometimes I like to pick out competed series because let’s be honest, no one likes waiting around for books! So I thought why not review a completed series? I used to do this all the time when my blog was on blogger instead of wordpress but I’m bringing it back! For May   I am choosing the Stage Dive series by the fabulous Kylie Scott! I am so excited to share this series with you guys! It is one of my absolute favorite series with characters and stories that I adore. Kylie is incredibly funny, the kind of funny that makes you laugh out loud days later after finishing one of her books. Something else that I really admire about Kylie’s writing is the fact that she has diverse female heroines, especially with their looks. Newsflash, not every woman in this world is size two and that is something that is evident in the Stage Dive series which I really appreciate. I love all of the stories, characters in this series and speaking of characters, the chemistry between these characters in this series,!! Oh my goodness you guys! I can guarantee you are going to fall head over heels just like I did! So let’s dive in!
Stage.dive-series-1024x370.png
The CoverThe Stage Dive series has some of my favorite covers EVER. I tend to either love or hate a cover, there is no in between and I’m very picky when it comes to book covers. Frankly, sometimes people only buy books based on covers so I think it’s important for authors nowadays to have kick ass covers that relate to their story and characters. The Stage Dive series does this perfectly; each book represents different members of the band Stage Dive, Lick represents David (the guitarist), Play represents Mal(the drummer), Lead  represents Jimmy(the singer) and Deep represents Ben(the bassiest). My favorite cover is Play because I love Mal and the story within Play very much. A+ covers guys!

Basics: The Stage Dive series is a total of four books, usually between 300 and 200 pages long. Lick is the first book, followed by Play, then Lead and ending with Deep. The books were published between November 2013 and March 2015. They were published by St. Martin’s Griffin. Genre wise The Stage Dive series belongs to contemporary romance. 

Description:  LicK: Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened. One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

***Note: I’m only going to post the description of Lick, all of the characters in each other (but especially in Lick) are all intertwined so I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers! ***
lick-teaser.jpg
Overall thoughts: The Stage Dive series is such a fun series full of bad situations with bad pasts and history, but it’s lovely and interesting to read about how hot rocker male’s fall in love fighting falling in love or just falling in love and overcoming their demons and hardships. Kylie Scott writes beautifully, her writing is laugh out loud funny and the romance is perfect and steamy. I think everyone can relate to several situations and characters in this series which is one of the reasons why I love it so much, I felt connected to the books. These books will have a piece of my heart forever and I hope the Stage Dive series touches you the way it has touched me.

Favorite Quotes:
  “Love isn’t always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful … Doesn’t mean it isn’t still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you.” -Lick

“We’ve broken my bed,” I said, stating the obvious.
“In battle, sacrifices must be made, pumpkin.” -Play

“The truth is, I’m all about you, Lena. You’re my best friend. You’re my girl.” -Lead

“Dicks don’t have brains. It’s why men get into trouble”  -Deep

Review: Dirty by Kylie Scott

*Originally posted 10/7/16 on blogger before I moved to wordpress**
I am currently in the path of Hurricane Matthew and since it hasn’t hit yet I thought it would be the perfect time to get some reading done and write up some reviews! The first book I chose to read for Hurricane Matthew was Dirty by Kylie Scott. I am a big, big fan of Kylie Scott, I fell in love with both her Stage Dive series and her Flesh series. So I had big expectations for her new series and first book, Dirty. The great thing about her Dive Bar series is that it’s based in the same world as the Stage Dive series but with different characters and different scenarios. You can read the Dive Bar series as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the Stage Dive series as well. But without further ago, let’s dive in this review!

dirty.jpg
Cover: I really find myself drawn to Scott’s covers because she has a certain theme with them, usually a handsome gentleman with only half of his face showing. I really like this concept for a a book cover because the guy doesn’t have a face, so it’s easier for you as the reader to visualize what the guy on the cover looks like and you can make it your own! Which is especially great because when it comes to reading everyone has different ideas of what certain characters in books look like in their own heads. I also like the fact that a martini glass is also featured because it fits in with the story.  A+ for the cover.

Basics: Dirty was released on April 19th, 2016, is 289 pages long and is published by St. Martin’s Griffin. Genre wise Dirty belongs to contemporary romance.

Description: Love—on the rocks. The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that come with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to scream or cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together. Just when this runaway bride has nowhere left to turn, a handsome stranger offers her a broad, muscular shoulder to cry on. Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessmen she’s normally drawn to.

This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and is facing his own crossroads.  But Lydia’s already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong–maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance. After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?
Dirty is the first book in the Dive Bar series from bestselling author Kylie Scott.

dirty-teaser-330.jpgOverall thoughts: I really enjoyed this book! Kylie Scott just has this way of drawing you in with her humor and also using certain relatable issues to tug on your heartstrings. In every book I have read of Scott’s, I find myself empathetic to at least one or more of her characters. When you can see yourself going through the same issue a character is going through in a book, you feel yourself fusing to the story and characters so much. There’s nothing better than falling in love with a book, one that you can especially relate to. The connection between Vaughn and Lydia was very refreshing; the way they met was funny and I really enjoyed how both of them were in difficult situations but leaned on each other to get through those difficult situations, The plot was really well done too; I think it’s very hard to keep readers interesting when it comes a nonfiction romance and Scott did a really fantastic job of keeping me intrigued. Everyone comes from somewhere, whether growing up in a small town or big city, there’s that feeling of home and being surrounded by the ones you love. In most cases when people think about going home that means seeing family and old friends, a theme that plays a big party in Dirty. Both good and drama filled, but that’s what makes it interesting right? I think my only complaint of this book would be the length, I loved it so much that I wish it was just a little bit longer! But don’t we all feel that way when we really enjoy a book? I’m looking forward to learning more about the crew of Coeur d’Alene and seeing how each of their stories pans out.  Bring on more of the Dive Bar series!

Favorite Quotes: “I looked down. Yes, something was definitely hardening in the front of his pants. Huh. We hadn’t even used tongue. And they said romance was dead.”

“I can’t say I know exactly what it feels like to be nailed to a door. But the way Vaughn did it made for one hell of an experience.” 
“Trust me, never mock a romance book, You have no idea the amount of good they can do for you between the sheets and on the streets. If you love your girl? Buy her books.”

ARC Review: Filthy Gods by R. Scarlett

FG-FINAL-High
The Cover: This cover is EVERYTHING.  It is seriously one of the best covers I have ever seen; it’s pleasing to the eye, the black and gold font is gorgeous and honestly I just love it.

Basics: Filthy Gods was released on May 15th, 2018 and is 168 pages long. Genre wise Filthy Gods belongs to novella, contemporary romance and standalone.

Description: Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them. And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.

As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.

The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.

Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.
I’d sworn I’d never give him the upper hand, until…
The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?
He just discovered it…and now he has all the power.
Filthy Gods.jpgOverall thoughts: Filthy Gods was my first R. Scarlett experience and oh my GOSH. I was completely blown away and R. Scarlett has one of the best romance books of 2018. Yes, I went there, I was THAT impressed. One of my favorite tropes when it comes to reading and especially in the romance world is the whole enemy to lovers to something more and Filthy Gods is basically centered around that trope, but delivers and then some.

Filthy Gods is actually a prequel novella and is a teaser for what the rest of the Filthy Gods series so it was really interesting to read. It talks about these four men who are basically Gods that rule this society. Juliette is just trying to keep her life together and her college career in tact. She may attending one of the best colleges in the world and holds one of the top GPAs but she’s not what she seems. Much to Juliette’s chagrin, Nathaniel (one of the members of the Gods) is pretty much hellbent on ruining her life. First it was in class, now in her social and work life. They strike up a deal between them for the summer and although they may seem like they absolutely hate one another, the chemistry they create is off the freaking charts.

Filthy Gods was sexy, well written, with heartfelt characters and intriguing plot that just made me gobble it down. I didn’t want to stop reading and when I finished I was very, very sad because I didn’t want it to end! R. Scarlett is an author to be on the lookout for because this book and the rest of this series has the possibility of burning down the whole romance genre book world. Look out world, here come the Filthy Gods.

About R. Scarlett: Scarlett lives in a small quaint town in Southern Ontario, Canada and has an unhealthy obsession with mythology and romance.  From studying English literature and minoring in History, she loves losing herself in a good book and snuggling up to her Brittany Spaniel.

When she’s not writing or plotting a delicious novel, she can be found hanging out with friends and family, going on long car rides, exploring small towns, or watching reruns of Sex and the City.

Review: Pestilence The Four Horsemen by Laura Thalassa

pestilience.jpgThe Cover: I was skimming through kindle unlimited when I saw this cover and it immediately caught my eye. This cover is beautiful and I absolutely LOVE how it shows Pestilence and Sara; not a lot of books do that or their covers don’t match their books and I am so happy that the cover of Pestilence does this. It will probably be one of my favorite covers of 2018, A+. 

Basics: Pestilence was released on March 20th 2018 and is 383 pages long. Genre wise Pestilence belongs to fantasy, romance, new adult, science fiction and fantasy.

Description: They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all. 

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed. Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed. 

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him. 
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she’ll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.
Pestilence.jpgOverall thoughts: So when I found this book I was scrolling through the Kindle Unlimited section and I saw the cover and it immediately caught my eye. I am one of those people who are drawn to books by their cover, cliche and wrong I know but it’s how I’ve found some of the most wonderful books. I borrowed Pestilence from the Kindle Unlimited program and started to read. Honestly I had my doubts, it’s a fantasy book based on a woman falling in love with one of the four horsemen that are supposed to help end our world for crying out loud. But man…I was SO WRONG. Pestilence is one of the best romance, Mature YA, fantasy, new adult, science fiction and fantasy books of all year, if not of all time. Yes, I went there.

The world is ending and everyone is trying to find a way to stop it, which unfortunately means killing the being responsible for spreading the plague around the world. Sara Burns is a firefighter and just wants to help people in any way she can which leads her to staying behind to try and kill the Horseman as he travels into town. However when she tries to kill Pestilence, not everything goes to plan and Sara finds her a prisoner of one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse instead. But is there more to this harbinger than meets the eye? Sara is hell bent on finding out, willinging to do whatever it takes to save mankind and her family. 

Pestilence and Sara start off as a bit irritating to read about because of their situation but as the book continues you just can’t help but swoon and root for them and their slow burning relationship. Sara is smart, is definitely not a damsel and has a sass that could knock the socks off anyone who tries to cut her down. Pestilence is frustratingly gorgeous and otherworldly, but I really loved watching transform from this conqueror and bringer of plague/hater of humans into this person growing into something wonderful but questioning everything around him. In a sense being a human being because lord knows our emotions make us question everything. As a couple I love Pestilence and Sara together and their attraction sizzles off the page. 

Laura Thalassa is an amazing writer, she is funny and just has this beautiful way of transporting you into her book so effortlessly. Pestilence was enthralling from start to finish and I am super excited for the future books in this series! 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: “I’m riding with one of the horsemen of the apocalypse. Holy shit. I’ve now got front row seats to the end of the world.” -Sara

“Anyone who tries to get close to us is doomed. You are safe Sara.” 
“But I’m not. Not from him, and not from my own heart.” -Pestilence and Sara

“When you ignore me, I burn with restlessness; it feels as though  the sun has turned its back on the world. And when you smile at me–when you gaze at me like you can see my soul—I feel–I feel like I am lit on fire, like you have been called by God to raze my world.” -Pestilence.

ARC Review: Bane by LJ Shen

BANE_AVAILABLE NOWThe Cover: I really do not like this cover, at all. I don’t know why I don’t like it and honestly I’m disappointed that I don’t like it. The font and color are nice though, it’s not just my taste.

Basics: Bane was released on May 6th 2018 and is part of the Sinners of Saints series but can be read as a standalone. Genre wise Bane belongs to contemporary romance and standalone romance. 

Description: Bane: Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter: Hot as hell, cold as ice.
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.
Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.
1I'm not afraidOverall thoughts: Bane was an emotional, heart-wrenching, up and down, curvy rollercoaster. It was downright hard to read sometimes and throughout most of the book, I’m a very empathic person and my heart just went out to Jesse for everything she went through. LJ Shen certainly loves to lure her readers in and rip our hearts out suddenly with her books. Bane was the worst and best one yet in that sense because the curveballs Shen kept throwing had my eyes bugging out of my head in confusion and shock.

Jesse has had some of the most traumatic things done to her and she’s just trying to heal from her past, she has her way of doing things and doesn’t want to change any of that. Bane ever the businessman and scoundrel (I call him scoundrel lovingly by the way) is the perfect man to shake up Jesse’s world. When he is given an opportunity to further his business and a young woman, he doesn’t think twice. Besides Jesse and Bane have more in common than you think, in several different ways. Again, Shen loves torturing her readers. 

I enjoyed Bane, I didn’t think it would be such the angsty, roller coaster ride that it was but I liked it. It wasn’t my favorite read mainly the fact that A LOT of traumatic things are discussed in the book and I would of appreciated a warning at the beginning of the book to prepare me for what I was about to read, but besides that Bane is without a doubt LJ Shen’s best book yet. If you can handle some dramatic and angsty romance, Bane is the pick for you.
