Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.

Review: A Court Of Frost & Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

168119631x.jpgThe Cover: I love ALL the covers that are part of the A Court Of Thorns & Roses series but the cover of A Court Of Frost & Starlight is so BEAUTIFUL. It’s probably my favorite to be honest! Feyre looks AMAZING and all the little details on the cover just makes me want to hug it! So pretty! A+

Basics: A Court Of Frost & Starlight was released on May 1st 2018, published by Bloomsbury YA and is 272 pages. A Court Of Frost & Starlight is a novella focusing on the events that occurred after A Court Of Wings & Ruin (book #3 in the series.) Genre wise A Court Of Frost & Starlight belong to Fantasy, Mature Young Adult, Standalone/novella and Romance.

Description: 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.
A Court Of Frost & Starlight.jpgOverall thoughts: I loved A Court Of Frost & Starlight so much! I wish it had been a full length book to be honest, but it was perfect as novella. It wrapped up some questions that were left behind in A Court Of Wings and Ruin and also got me curious for the next book! Feyre and Rhysand are everything and I could probably read ten or five million more books based on them alone. Besides the growing tensions in other courts and the aftermath of the war with Hybern, it was refreshing to just read about the lives of the Night Court. Feyre and Rhys could just be together and it was a nice change of pace. 

I also liked the fact that several chapters were based on other character’s points of view. Although when it came to reading other character’s POV it brought more questions which was a bit annoying, but it set things up for the next book. Which brings me up to the next part of this review: Nesta and Cassian. Man…these two are probably the most angsty couple I have ever read about and they really aren’t a couple yet! No spoilers, but the majority of this book focused on how every character was dealing with the aftermath of the war and all the changes that occurred. It was very hard to read Nesta’s POV, my heart goes out to her and also to Cassian. They are both broken people that I just wished would come together so they could finally heal and be happy, maybe in the next set of books? Which brings up another big question, Sarah J. Maas said that it would be pretty clear what characters the next set of books would focus on when it came A Court Of Frost & Starlight; but she had several characters point of views in A Court Of Frost & Starlight. minus Feyre and Rhysand it seemed to me that the next set of books would focus on the Inner circle which could mean: Nesta, Cassian, Elain, Lucien, Mor and Amren. Question is, will the next book focus on one POV or two? Or even more than two? I’m excited for the future but I wished we didn’t have to wait so long!

A Court Of Frost & Starlight was a light, happy read showcasing the aftermath events of A Court Of Frost & Starlight. Clearly not everyone was happy but if all the characters weren’t happy, more books wouldn’t be published. I really liked the back and forth of POV’s between Feyre and Rhysand, I actually wish we could get the whole entire series from Rhy’s point of view. I also really enjoyed how their was more of a romance element in A Court Of Frost & Starlight too, after everything Feyre and Rhys have been through they NEEDED some happy in the lives desperately. 

I am so looking forward to the future of this series and the expansion beyond the Night Court. A Court Of Frost & Starlight will definitely be high on my list of best 2018 books at the end of the year. Till next time Court lovers: to the stars who listen and to the dreams that are answered!

Teaser: Mogul by Katy Evans

Mogul-Teaser1.jpgBlurb: 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.

Blog Tour: Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

Birthday-Girl-EBOOKDescription:  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+.

Teaser: This Time Around by Stacey Lynn

Blurb: Cooper Hawke was everything I didn’t need. Rich and famous, and a high-profile actor, he lived a life of luxury while my life had always been much more simple.

Yet when he showed up at my cattle ranch in Kansas, he gave me everything I didn’t think I wanted again.

His marriage was over and he was lost.
I was still barely surviving in my grief after my husband’s sudden death.

As hard as I tried to keep him out, he slipped past my defenses, and slowly, a connection grew between us I could no longer deny.

But this time around, we were on borrowed time. Because Cooper still had his real life waiting for him back in Hollywood.

Blog Tour & Excerpt: Escort by Skye Warren

Escort, a sexy new contemporary romance standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren is now LIVE!
breakfast in bed. cup of coffee and  Lily of the valley
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.

Excerpt: The word seems to take her aback. “Pleasure?”

“That’s the nature of my business, yes.” My body tightens, because it would be pleasure indeed to touch this woman. To kiss her. To make her moan for me.

Although I might have to rethink that plan, because the word pleasure might as well have been medieval torture based on the way Bea looks at me. “I thought we were going to have sex.”

She sounds so forlorn it could break my heart.

Instead I laugh, a small huff of breath, because I can’t afford to have a heart.

“Sex,” I say, standing to full height, circling the scuffed oriental coffee table, standing behind her chair. “And pleasure. Pleasure and sex. They’re interchangeable.”

I brush my knuckles over the side of her neck, a demonstration. Her wild curls tickle my skin.

It’s provocative, this. If she had agreed to dinner I would have started with small touches, a glance of my palm against the small of her back as I pulled out her chair, holding her hand while we talked over a glass of wine. Perhaps being so bold as to run a finger along the inside of hers, where it’s more sensitive. She would shiver; her gaze would meet mine.

There’s an order to these things. You can move fast or slow, but there’s still an order.

“We can skip the pleasure part,” she says, her voice high, her breathing faster. Her chest rises and falls in the black dress, made all the more alluring by how much it covers. She’s a mystery. The black sky in the city. I have to work to see her secrets.

“No,” I chide gently. “We focus on the pleasure. That’s the point.”

“What if—” Her breath catches as I drop the back of my hand over her collarbone, a reverse caress. That’s what one does for a skittish creature like her. “What if I have a different point?”

“And what point would that be, my sweet Bea?”

“I want to lose my virginity,” she says, so fast it comes out as a single word.

IWANTTOLOSEMYVIRGINITY. It takes my lust-warmed brain a full minute to comprehend. She’s not only nervous, this woman. She’s a virgin.

My hand freezes. I yank it away. “Pardon me?”

I can’t have heard her correctly. There is no chance in hell that this beautiful young woman, as strange and interesting as she is, is a virgin. No chance in hell that I was the one tasked to be her first. I could not possibly spread her legs and thrust inside her, knowing that no one’s ever been there. It would be a physical impossibility. Never. No possible way.

“It doesn’t have to take long,” she says, suddenly earnest. Almost begging me. “I don’t need…you know…whatever you do for other women. I only want the sex.”

My God. “You are insane.”

A scrunch of her nose. “Well, you don’t have to sound too surprised. It is what I requested when I called. The woman said that’s what you do.”

“I’m not taking your virginity.” On some level I might have guessed this about her. If I had considered it even possible, I might have. Virgins don’t hire me. They stammer and giggle and turn away from me, their protective instincts strong enough to send them in the opposite direction. So perhaps I can be forgiven for not recognizing this one, so forthright.

Bea frowns. “Is that a different department or something?”

She’s mocking me. She’s mocking me for being, well, prudish, and I feel strangely buoyant. I could float away with the absurdity of it. “Yes, it’s a different department. The department of a frat boy who fumbles around in the dark.”

“Are you seriously not going to do it?”

The irony is enough to flatten me, that this is a woman I might have pursued outside this job. She would have been too young for me, even if I weren’t an escort and she wasn’t my client. That wouldn’t have stopped me from wanting her.

But in another incarnation, if I had been one of those fumbling frat boys, I would have followed this woman to the ends of the earth. That’s a hypothetical scenario on multiple levels, but I’m good at hypotheticals, which is another reason I’m good at my job.

So good that I please every single client I’ve ever had.

ARC Review & Excerpt: Sinner by Sierra Simone

The Cover: This is cover is amazing, it’s intimate, beyond sexual and so forbidden. Like we shouldn’t be looking at the model, right? Pardon the pun but looking at the cover makes me feel like I’m sinning. 

Basics: Sinner was released on March 15th 2018 and is 366 pages long. Genre wise Sinner belongs to contemporary romance, age gap romance and forbidden romance. 

Description: 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.
Excerpt:  “Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up.  Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.

Fuck, I want to see it.  I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.

“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.

“My…cunt?”  She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.

“Yeah.”  My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before.  Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.

She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar.  I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.

Her forbidden body.  That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear.  Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad.  Bad even for Sean Bell.

Bad, bad, bad.
Overall thoughts: Sinner is another gift that Sierra Simone has given us! This book was much lighter in comparison to Simone’s other works (I’m still reeling from The New Camelot trilogy to be honest!) but I really loved it. Sean is the classical older bad boy that every romance reader wants and dreams about but I really enjoyed him because one he is absolutely hilarious and two, very relatable. Faith is a very tricky thing and I think everyone tends to struggle with their own faith at some point in their lives. So what would happen if you brought someone who didn’t believe in a God with someone who does believe in God and wants to devote their life to that God? The Nun and the Sinner. 

Zenny is a college study who is solely focused on her goals: becoming a nun and helping others, whereas Sean is an older playboy billionaire dealing with his mother dying of cancer and this insane attraction for someone much, MUCH younger than him. But of course there are complications: Sean shares a small past with her, Zenny is his best friend’s little sister, the age difference and most of all…Zenny is about to become a nun. 

The story of the Nun and the Sinner just got a bit more complicated. Zenny and Sean are a wonderful couple and their intimacy and chemistry leaps off the pages as you read. Simone has a such a way of words that I’m either blushing scarlet or re-reading the sentence several times because it was that beautiful and powerful. Sinner is a standalone (part of The Priest series) but I honestly wish there were several more books about Sean and Zenny. One of my favorite reads of 2018 so far!

Favorite Quotes: “Oh my God, I’m going to hell. I don’t even believe in hell and I’m going there.” -Sean
