Erotic with amazing BDSM scenes that definitely made my kindle sizzle. It was so damn hot. Wow. Lexi Blake gave me a story that was on another level both emotional and intense.

Why the fuck is Kira at this party?
I have no right to begrudge her this. She should be here, having fun, experiencing college to the fullest.
It just burns that she came here without telling me. That she didn’t even think of inviting me.
That she’s pushing me away while making time to sit on the grass with Austin.
If Dana hadn’t told Ryan to call me, I wouldn’t have known Kira was here.
This party is taking place in one of the student’s homes—a mansion so fucking big, it’s bordering on ridiculous.
I’m never going to find Kira here, and according to what Dana told Ryan, Kira’s shitfaced. Drunk out of her mind.
And Dana lost her.
Growling under my breath, I push past the crowd, ignoring every drunk girl who tries to grope me.
Sometimes I wonder how I ever got high off this kind of attention. How my ego fed on it. It’s annoying as fuck.
I’ve already checked the large ass kitchen. Two of the sitting rooms. The foyer. The pool room. And almost every room upstairs.
I get a text from Dana. Marilyn just spotted her going into the movie theater on the first floor. OMW there now.
Of course this place has a movie theater, too.
Fucking ridiculous, as I said.
I about-face and practically fly down the stairs. I have no idea where the hell the movie theater is, so I grab a few people as I walk and ask them.
All of them are as clueless as I am.
They look at me as if I’m crazy.
To them, I probably look like I am.
Finally, I find one person who knows. Don’t know who he is, don’t care. He points me in the right direction, and I rush away without even thanking him.
The theater is all the way in the back of the house, in an area that’s actually empty. I get there in time to see Dana opening the door and rushing in.
Man, she’s an awesome girl. I could never thank her enough for caring for Kira the way she obviously does.
I go inside and find the small theater empty, except for Dana, Marilyn . . .
My breath whooshes out of me at the sight of her. I’m instantly hard, aching, furious, and possessive.
We haven’t fucked in days and I’d be lying if I said my balls aren’t full to bursting. I need sex right now like I need air and she’s the only person to give it to me.
But she came here, in that tiny, dark purple dress.
I have no right to tell her how to dress--but what the fuck is she doing coming to a party dressed like that without me?
Kira’s leaning against one of the chairs all the way at the front of the theater, refusing to move despite Marilyn urging her.
It’s obvious she really is drunk as a motherfucker.
“I just want to be alone, guys,” she says, almost whining.
I refuse to be amused. Now’s not the time. I’m too pissed at her.
But, fuck me. She’s sexy, adorable, and those lips are begging for my cock.
“I know, sweetie. But it’s not good for you to be alone right now.”
Kira swats Marilyn away. “Stop your shit, woman. You’re not my mother.”
Even Dana laughs at that one.
“She’s not. But I’m your man. And I say you’re not going to be alone.”
They all turn to stare at me as I walk down the short steps toward them.
Kira’s eyes flare with resentment.
She rakes me with a cold stare that still manages to burn my entire body with how hungry it is.
Damn. If any of these girls just happen to look down a bit, they’re going to get an eyeful of how hard my dick is.
“I don’t want you here, either.” She swats me away like an imperious little queen.
“Girls. Leave us.”
Marilyn and Dana hesitate at my tone.
I don’t have time for this shit. “Now.”
Dana snaps to action first and leads Marilyn up the stairs and out of the theater.
Kira’s still looking at me with that rebellious hunger, a lust-filled sneer on her face.
I have no qualms about reaching down and palming my dick in front of her.
Her eyes flare hungrily.
“We’re leaving, Kitty. Now.” I can’t fuck her until she sobers up considering how angry at me she is, but I’m getting her home.
Kira steps toward me and stumbles at bit.
I rush forward and catch her, pulling her up against me.
Contact. Seering, torturous contact. I have my arms wrapped around her, my hands on her ass, before I realize what I’m doing. As always, it’s an instant reaction. Absolutely zero control over my own body.
Kira pushes at my chest and that sexy small growl she gives me turns me on so much. “Don’t touch me.”
My barely leashed temper snaps free. “Like hell. You’re mine.”
She struggles against me, her body sliding along mine. “Excuse me if I don’t want to go back to fucking the dick I’ve seen inside Jennifer two too many times.”
She’s hurting. I get it. Shit, I’d be even more feral in her shoes.
But I’ll be damned if I let her pretend she doesn’t want me anymore.
Fisting her hair, I slide my other hand under her dress and roughly shove her panties to side.
Kira lets out a broken gasp at the feel of my fingers slipping inside her.
I move them around on purpose so she can hear how wet she is. “Lie to me again. Tell me you don’t want me,” I growl in her face.
Her arms wind around my neck and she slams her lips against mine. Growling at me like she hates me and wants to eat me at the same time, she kisses me with everything she has.
Trying to control me.
I want nothing more than to show her who’s fucking in charge here, but she’s licking my tongue like it’s the tip of my dick, and her hips are thrusting up and down, fucking my fingers.
Using me for her pleasure.
Her body locks up, her plump pussy swelling around my fingers. A throb, a rush of liquid, and she’s squirting into my hand, her sexy moans echoing between our lips.
I manhandle her, my mind cracking under the pressure of so much need. Spinning, I fall to my knees on the short steps and place her beneath me.
The steps are short but they’re huge. Enough to accommodate her lower body on one.
Kira leans back with her elbows on the step above her. Head thrown back, gorgeous throat exposed, she struggles to pull in air.
I lean back on my haunches and yank my belt open.
The sound makes her raise her head. By the time her eyes are on my crotch, I already have my glistening cock out in my hand.
She whispers my name like a prayer.
This is what I need. No more distance. No more pain. Just her and her nearly demonic need to have me.
And I need this even more.
I grab her thighs and tug her toward me. Kira says my name again. Her hands land on my shoulders, fisting my shirt.
I spread her legs wide, wider than I probably should, and slide that juicy cunt right onto my dick.
Her body arches off the stairs like she’s being possessed.
If I haven’t left enough of me inside her for her to understand—for her to accept—that I own her and always will . . .
I’m going to remedy that.
And there’s nothing she can do about it.
I pull my hips back, slow, hissing at the slick feel of her pussy walls tightening. Trying to keep me in.
Kira whimpers, clenching me even harder.
Wanting to let me go and powerless to do anything but keep me.
Using all my strength, I slam back into her.
One hard, vicious thrust.
She cries out and comes all over me.
Just like that.
I crack my neck, a growl purring through my chest, and lay into her. No mercy. No thought.
I’m close. Just a few more pumps into that slick cunt.
Kira fists my hair, her moans bouncing off the walls around us. I lower myself down and brace my elbows on either side of her head.
She tries to tug me down and kiss me.
I slide one hand beneath her head, fisting that beautiful hair, and drag her up to me. “Who told you that you could come here dressed like that?”
She bites my lip hard enough to make my vision snap white. I think I taste blood. “Fuck you. You don’t own m—” She chokes on her words with my next thrust.
I can’t stop groaning, yet somehow I’m laughing in her face at the ridiculousness of her statement. “You want to keep fucking lying to yourself, Kitty?”
She hisses like the wild cat she is and leans up to lick across my bottom lip. When she pulls back, I see it.
Her lips are stained with the blood she drew from me.
I press my lips to her, our tongues dueling. We’re nothing but a mindless mass of sex, and I can feel the come rising up my shaft.
In the back of my head, it registers that I hear people speaking.
On the other side of the door.
“That bitch ruined my life!”
“First off, don’t ever call her a bitch in front of me. Got it? Secondly, you have no proof it was her that sent your parents that video. Third, back the fuck off, or I’m going to forget we were ever—”
The door opens.
I raise my head enough to look up. For a split second, the fact that we’ve been caught freezes me.
Then I see two pairs of familiar blue eyes locked on us.
My Rating : 5 stars
Damn, what a book. Never in my wildest dreams would I have a book that would make me a bit mad. I felt like I was high on some weird shit I tell after reading Own. After reading Need and Take, I had to read Own because these books really made me lose my damn mind. I was so blown away with the storyline. Wow, Own was a perfect conclusion to Brayden and Kira's story. It was such a beautiful story told with so much conviction and poise that my eyes were so glued to the story. I was definitely owned by Own.
Own is the third book in the Need Series. You must read Need and Take first to be able to understand the story. I was pulled into the story like the first two. The story itself was so beautifully written and so immaculate. Everything in the book was woven together. I found myself in a trance reading Own. I loved that most things are resolved. I had so may questions and I am glad that they were answered. Own was a steamy book full of angst, heart and emotions. It was such an emotionally charged book that had my heart pounding with excitement. I was at my edge of my seat. There was a good balance of plot vs sex scenes. And man oh man, those sex scenes were on fire just like the previous books in the series. I thought that my kindle would combust with the heat and also the sexual tension. Wow, they were red hot. K.I. Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco know how write a sex scenes and give a good quality balance. I was in awe. Definitely was the perfect conclusion.
At first Kira annoyed me sometimes but I loved that she was such a strong character. She had moments that made her so lovable. She got to be really badass and I loved that. Brayden, oh Brayden, such an amazing and dirty mouth he has. Lol. He made me tingle in the right place. Wow. I wish he was real. I could give him a ride of his life lol. Anyway he was an asshole at first but I loved that he got to prove himself. I was really happy about that.
Brayden and Kira have that chemistry that rocked my socks off. I loved their banter that just made me feel so happy and swoon. They were the perfect couple. They were so comfortable together. What a journey they both had together as a couplr.
Own was a perfect story that was flawless. It definitely gets a slot on my favourite books of 2016. It certainly deserves it. Judging by the teaer in the book, can't wait for the next book

My Rating: 5 stars
Ever had a book that rips your heart to tiny little pieces until you left with nothing? Ever had a book that completely annihilates you beyond repair?

It is one of the books that will forever be etched in my heart, mind, body and soul. It is a book I will forever remember because it was such a special story from the heart and I fell in love with everything about it.
Spiralling Skywards #2: Fading is not just a story but it is beautiful piece of literature that was honest, emotional, heartwarming and so real. Yes it is fiction but it screamed realism through out because you are able to relate with the story so much. I am in awe. I devoured this book but the beautiful thing is that it affected me at a large scale. And that is what you want in a book. You want a book that still lingers in your mind. You want a book that affects you on greater scale. Spiralling Skywards #2 delivered that and more. I know Lesley Jones took a risk with the story but I loved that she did because it showed that she wanted honesty and a story that could impact you as a human being. I commend her for going with her gut because she produced a phenomenal book. She definitely took it to another level. I cried when I read Spiralling Skywards #2.

Lesley Jones really is a phenomenal writer. She putts her all in her stories and that makes her so talented. Yeah, this book might make people angry but she showed sometimes life is not of sunshine, roses and rainbows but there is something inside of us that plagues our souls each day. We each have that darkness that we battle each day. Spiralling Skywards #2 really touched me on a personal level and brought out a few things that I could relate.
Liam and Sarah are a couple that are real, honest and relatable. Yes you may feel their chemistry and get that they are an amazing couple but I loved it showed their struggles together. Sometimes you need to see that in a book. I loved that even though it is fiction. Sarah really touched my heart. She was going through what we go through as a woman. The insecurity, the doubt in your spouse, pressures of life and family struggles and it made me relate to her a lot. We all feel that in life. Liam as ever he was loving but here I felt a shift in him. He was busy more. Neglected Sarah sometimes but I loved he fought for her. I was disappointed in him a lot but I loved how he cared and provided for his family.
Spiralling Skywards #2: Fading was a beautiful, heartfelt and captivating story that touch me to the depths of my soul. It carried a beautiful message in the story. I cannot wait for Sasha's story.

Genres: Adult, Mafia Romance, Interracial Romance, Erotic Romance
As a newly Made Capo in the Pivetti Crime Family, all eyes are on James “Mac” Maccari, and not for a particularly good reason. The way to his new position in the family was paved with blood, and that left some all too suspicious of where—or who—he might be going after next. Mac isn’t interested in playing to the politics of other Made men or Cosa Nostra. His only goal is to keep his promise and be waiting for his gun moll when she’s finally released from prison.
Until all hell breaks loose … again.
Fresh off her six month sentence, Melina Morgan is all too ready to get back to life, and Mac. The mafia life has been one learning curve after another, but with Mac at her side, there’s nothing that they can throw at her that she can’t handle. Even with a ring on her finger, and a new last name to go with it, Melina won’t be domesticated. But with a man like Mac, he wasn’t exactly looking for that kind of a woman, anyway.
Sometimes, wedding bells bring bloodstains …
When directed attacks start to happen, taking the lives of some of the highest Made men in the Pivetti family, distrust and unrest begins to breed throughout the ranks. Someone is making a move on the boss’s seat, and it seems far too easy to put the blame at Mac’s feet when every single attack is somehow connected to him. All over again, Mac and Melina find they’re fighting an uphill battle to keep each other safe and survive.
But this time, they might not be fighting alone …

My Rating: 5 stars
Wow, what a ride. Gangster Moll was totally an epic story. I mean this book had everything you could want in a mob story. Abundance of roller coaster drama and high action that had your head spinning. My head was definitely spinning but in a good way. Gangster Moll definitely exceeded my expectation and I was so blown away by it. Wow. Gangster Moll told a fast pacing story of love, survival, action and loyalty, not only as a couple but also as part of the mob.
Gangster Moll is the continuation of Gun Moll, the first book in the Gun Moll series. It follows the story of Melina and Mac as they navigate their lives in Cosa Nostra. I loved reading Gangster Moll. Damn, It was like I was watching my favourite drama movie. I was so pulled to the story that the story itself etched itself to my heart and soul. There was so much dream that had me reeling and causing a ripple effect. It was so exhilarating. I love a book with a huge dose of action that had my heart pounding and Gangster Moll brought out the action. The whole book was like a Telemundo story but an amazing one. Huge amounts drama, huge amounts of sensuality and passion that you are practically swimming in it and a back story that had mystery and suspense to give an edge without confusing me. I love that the authors each up the ante with the story. They definitely outdid themselves.
Melina and Mac are like the perfect couple. Their chemistry so believable but also it has trust and loyalty in it. I just love reading about them. Their POVs just give a unique dynamic and lets you get to know more about them. I love Melina. She is so strong, fierce, feisty and just so badass. I love that I always see a vulnerable side to her. She is a survivor and that is why she is one of those heroines that will happily change my sexuality for lol. Mac is so controlled. I love how he stands by for Melina giving her protection even though sometimes she used to taking care of herself. he is possessive and loyal to a T.
Gangster Moll was a phenomenal read. Omg, I loved it so much that I cannot wait for the third book. I know it is going to be one wild ride.

An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series.
It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.
I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn’t.
And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?
My Rating: 5 stars
I am a huge fan of K. Bromberg, She wrote the Driven series, a phenomenal series that I absolutely adore. When I heard that she was going in a new route and doing something different, I was so excited. Sometimes it takes one different book from an author you love to really make you love her more. I irrevocably loved Sweet Cheeks so much. Sweet Cheeks is a swoon worthy, panty melting and heartwarming story about second chances, redemption and love. I simply fell in love with it.
Sweet Cheeks is a story that reminds you of warm summer nights, brightly lit moon, sugar sweet candies and cool breeze that gives you amazing tingles on your skin. It was simply perfection. I loved the storyline that I was so smiling through out the book. It was sweet. It was swoony. It was full of angst. It was an addictive read that pulled me in from the first page to the last page. I fell in love so deeply with it. K. Bromberg gave us an amazing and captivating story that moved and touched my soul. The amount of sexual tension in the book was so hot. I loved that there was a balance of plot vs sex scenes and I got to really understand the story better. She wrote a flawless story of love and pain that made my heart tingle in the right place. Sweet Cheeks was simply a magnificent that makes you believe in love. It was so beautiful.
Sweet Cheeks introduced us to Saylor and Hayes, Two characters I felt were so perfect together had amazing chemistry through out the book that you just could not help but fall in love. I was smiling at their banter, at their goofiness but they had heart which exploded and made me love them more and more.
Saylor Rodgers was a heroine who I loved. She was independent, strong and sassy. There were times that I actually felt so sorry for her and I wanted to give her big hug. In a way I could relate to her a lot. She is someone you would love to be friends with.
Move over Colton Donavan, there is a new alpha in town and his name is Hayes Whitley. Wow. I was swooning. Hayes is that hero that I wish could exist in reality because I will snag him and have babies with him. He was that alpha that made toe curl and my heart tingle lol. I want a guy like him. He was so loving and caring to Saylor. He was cocky without being a douche. Aaaa, I want him lol.

TAKE MY DARE
By: J. Kenner
Release Date: November 8, 2016
I’ve never been happier than I am with Jackson Steele. But I should know better than anyone that happiness always comes at a price ...
My life with Jackson is nothing short of perfection. He is my love, my husband, the one man in all the world who makes me feel alive and whole. Our careers are on track. Our family is growing. And the ghosts of our past have been vanquished – or so I believed.
When a wonderful night of sensuality and passion following a masquerade ball turns dark with the news that haunting, horrible photographs of me have surfaced, my old fears and insecurities threaten to knock me down, and it is only within Jackson’s arms that I find the strength to endure.
But even Jackson’s protection may not be able to save us, because I know my husband well. And he will do whatever it takes—even if it means risking himself—in order to protect our family…
Contains a bonus Steele Short Story, Steal My Heart!

Take my Dare is a continuation of Jackson and Sylvia. I was so excited that I was getting to read more on Jackson and Sylvia. They happen to be my favourite couple and I was so stoked to see what has been happening. I love J. Kenner. She is a talented writer and she always write books that I cannot help but fall in love with.
Take my Dare was such a hot novella packed with action, angst and drama. It was one of those novella that was a seductive guilty pleasure that I could not get enough. For a short novella, it definitely packed a punch. I was so captivated by the story that I devoured within minutes. The writing in this story as always was so impeccable. I was truly compelled by it.
I love Jackson and Sylvia together. Take my Dare really showcased Jackson's loyalty and protectiveness over Sylvia. I could not help but swoon. Jackson is that alpha that make toes curl and my body tingle. LOL. Sylvia truly was so strong and I loved that she did not let her past affect. I commend her for that. This couple will forever be the couple I just adore immensely. They have that special chemistry that is totally believable and addictive.
Take my Dare is definitely one of my favourite books of 2016.

I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they've read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty.
All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me.
After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction. They’re only fiction...

BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, Purple Heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist.
At an early age, he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination.
Upon graduation from high school, his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four-team members badly wounded.
After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state.
Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities.
After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he had always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel 'A Lover's Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, 'Into the Nothing' and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.

He's won the hearts of millions. But is he willing to lose his?
I met the president’s son when we were both young. Matthew Hamilton was handsome, polished, and intelligent. I’d never met a guy like him.
He promised me that he’d never run for president. I promised that if he did, I’d be by his side.
Three terms later, an invitation to join Matthew Hamilton’s campaign is the most exhilarating opportunity I’ve ever experienced. I'm determined to make a difference; he is determined to win.
Focused on his goal, Matt is steadfast, ruthless, and disarming. All eyes are on him and his popularity is surging. But soon, the next possible president of the United States is possessing me in more ways than one—and despite the risks, I'm helpless to resist.
We're stealing touches, stealing moments, and stealing away at night. But our chemical connection is quickly becoming dangerously combustive, putting not only my heart, but Matt's chance at the presidency on the line.
Winning will take everything. Walking away will be the hardest thing of all.

He kisses me gently the first second, and then without apology, deeply, like the revving of a rocket engine, followed by the launch into space, and then I’m in a galaxy of pure bright stars and endless night, lost and weightless, warmed by a sun I cannot see, his mouth a hungry vortex, a delicious black hole, sucking me in.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!I have no words for Mr. President right now but simply be in awe of it. Wow, that was literally one of the best politically based books I have ever read. I was up until 3am reading Mr. President and I was left with so much emotion and basically flipping all the pages frantically saying, 'That's it'. I even yelled a bit because I was moved by the story. A few books do that to me and this book was one of them. I was amazed. I was even speechless. Mr. President was perfect politically charged story filled with scandal, romance and sexiness. I fell in love with it.
I have been a massive fan of Katy Evans. She is one of those authors I one click instantly with no hesitation. When I got Mr. President, I was so excited because I simply love her and the story grabbed my attention just like that. I was not disappointed at all. From the first page, I was hooked. I simply could not take my eyes of it. Everything about Mr. President was truly perfection. The story, the romance, the characters, the politics and the sex scenes were so phenomenal that it all just clicked. I found myself just simply getting lost in the book. It is so magical when a book does that to you. Mr. President was a powerful and emotionally charged book that simply dripping with drama, sex and politics. I found myself so captivated and mesmerized with the American politics portrayed in Mr. President. It was hot as hell. Mr. President was seeping with so much light that I found myself smiling throughout the book.
Katy Evans is a wordsmith. I freaking loved her describing scenes in her books. I found myself being transported into the world of Matt and Charlotte and I loved every moment of it. I was swooning. I was laughing. I was sad. I almost cried. Mr. President gave me so much damn emotions. I thought I was going insane. That's what so awesome because Katy Evans gave us powerful writing that I feel like it deserved to be given a massive shoutout.
I loved the characters. They were so dynamic and prolific. Oh Charlotte was a heroine I simply adored. She was sassy, spunky, fun, caring, loving and loyal. She was a hard worker. I just loved her. She was one of those heroines I felt so comfortable. There was a balance to her strong side vs her vulnerable side. Katy Evans definitely nailed that. Max Hamiliton. My Max. I freaking loved him that he has joined my book boyfriend club. I was swooning. He was sexy, swoon worthy(oh I swooned hard for him), cocky without being a douche, alpha (le sigh), and just pretty much so amazing. Max and Charlotte had the perfect chemistry that I just could not help but fall in lovw with. It was real, quirky and their banter was off the charts amazing.
Mr. President was an amzing read. I cannot wait what happens next.

I was a pawn.
Weak and someone easily manipulated.
To be played with as he saw fit.
YOU shone light in my now dark world.
It was YOU who made me smile.
For the first time in this game, I had hope.
All because of YOU.
The more powerful pieces on the board, however, were a threat to YOU and me.
They would win at any cost.
Two kings ruling with an iron fist.
Allies or opponents, it was hard to tell.
YOU promised to save me.
Told me we would win.
But then I was on the wrong side of the board.
This isn't YOU, baby.
And I don't know what to do.
The game is almost over and I'm counting on YOU.
This Isn’t You, Baby is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes, excessive drug use, and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for YOU.
This story will make YOU smile.
This story will make YOU angry.
This story will make YOU crazy.
I hope YOU love it, baby.
Rating: 5+ stars
Warning: This Isn't You, Baby is a dark book. It contains scenes that will trigger. This is not a romance. If you are looking for a book with fairytales or unicorns or hearts and rainbows, then this is not your book. But if you like me, who loves the twisted and fucked up shit then this is your book. Read it if you dare.
OMG. OH MY BLOODY GOSH!!!!!!!!This Isn't You, Baby was just freaking mind blowing. Wow!!!!That was the most intense book ever on earth. Actually, the most fucked up book in this universe. I certainly did not expect my reaction over this book. I was rendered speechless. I was in awe. This Isn't You, Baby was not just a book but it was the book of books. A dark, twisted and beautiful masterpiece of a book.
I was up until 2am reading this book. I know I was going to get something epic. I got a piece of beautiful literature that was more than epic. My gosh, there are just not enough words that can do justice. I probably will go wow throughout this review. Plus, I don't want to say a lot because I do not want to risk spoiling it by mistake. Trust me, you are getting nothing from me. You just have to wait until October 25 to read it and found out. I am being mysterious. I know. But I want you as the reader to explore the emotions I felt reading This Isn't You, Baby. YOU ARE GOING TO FEEL ALL MKINDS OF EMOTIONS. I was an emotional mess to point I was punching a pillow with frustration. I was rolling on the floor crying my heart out. I was shouting and screaming like a banshee. True story. I was a mess. It was riveting. I could feel all of the chills all over my body and I knew that this book is just perfect. The amount of twist and turns will have reeling and threaten to cause you to get up on your seat. It was just pure magnificent. Wow.
I love K. Webster even though I hated her with how she ended this book. Its like she was collecting all my tears and laughing while doing that. But I love her more for it. Probably will be one of those weirdos who will camp outside her house. Hahaha, I am a stalker. Her writing is genius. She always brings something totally different and unique into her book. She always brings the spice and that is why I always fall in love with her books no matter how they make me feel.
All I can say, read This Isn't You, Baby. One click it and read read read and prepare.
PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY.
PREPARE TO GET DRUGS AND ALCOHOL NEARBY
PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR THERAPIST ON SPEED DIAL
PREPARE TO BE MINDFUCKED AND TWISTED.
PREPARE YOURSELF BECAUSE IT IS GOING TO BE AN EPIC RIDE.

Former police psychologist Ronni Alexander had it all before a poison attacked her heart and gave her a death sentence. Now, on her last leg, she has an opportunity to live if she mates a vampire.

Jared Reese, who has no intention of ever mating for anything other than convenience, agrees to help out his new sister-in-law by saving her friend’s life with a quick tussle in bed. The plan seems so simple. They’d mate, and he move on with his life and take risks as a modern pirate should.

Good thing he’s up for a good battle.

Tricked is my first book by Rebecca Zanetti. Wow, it was a different take on vampires and I loved it. I love paranormal romance and it is one of the genres that gives me a beautiful escape from the real world. I was blown away by the story. Rebecca Zanetti definitely gave me a beautiful escape into a very memorable and fantastic vampire story.
Tricked is about Veronica, a woman who is about to die from a poison. She asks Jared a vampire to help her by making her an immortal. Sparks fly between them but there is also danger that will come after them. I was in awe with this story. It was edgy and different. I am one of those people who read a lot of vampire stories. I liked that Tricked had a story that was fresh and unique. I completely fell in love with it. I was so captivated with the scenes that I devoured it so fast. I wanted more and more.
I loved the characters. Veronica was spunky, sassy and strong. I loved that he would not let Jared boss her around. It made her very likable character indeed. Jared was so bossy and alpha. I found myself swooning for him. He had a dominant side that was a bit cocky and fun. As a vampire, I loved his protective side for Veronica. Veronica and Jared had chemistry that was so lovable and believable. Their banter lightened up the story.
Tricked was a truly amazing book to read. I will definitely be reading more books from Rebecca Zanetti.
For now, he had to figure this out. “Why did you become a shrink?”
“I wanted to help people.” She wiped snow off her jeans. “My dad was a cop, and he said I didn’t have what it took.” She hunched her shoulders inward. “I guess I kind of wanted to prove him wrong. Plus, I have a knack for figuring people out.”
She had a knack because she was empathic. So she was driving herself so hard just to prove herself? That wouldn’t do. However, he liked that she wanted to help people. Smart, spirited, and sweet. That was her. He glanced at her, his hands easy on the steering wheel.
“What?” she asked.
“You’re very likable,” he said, taking a corner.
She blinked. Color tinged her cheeks. Her lips pursed. “Thank you.”
Yeah. The woman knew how to take a compliment. He liked that, too. Her scent of spices and berries wrapped around him, providing comfort with a jolt of energy. The idea that somebody wanted to harm her tightened his muscles. He’d never been a nice guy, and a battle was a battle, but he’d make the asshole who’d poisoned her bleed before dying.
He pulled into the back lot of the tiny restaurant. “You ever been here?”
She craned her neck to check out the innocuous brick building. “No.”
“Best pizza in the world.” He jumped out of the car and crossed to assist her. “Careful. The lot is icy.”
She nodded and allowed him to lead her through the back door. The smells of garlic, cheese, and pretty much heaven hit them both. She breathed in. “Wow.”
“Yeah.” He grinned. “You’ll love it.” Taking her hand, he led her through the hallways to a small private dining area and gave a nod to Theo before surveying the room. Ah, shit. Theo had brought Ginny.
