Will their passion destroy them both?
Kit’s a hardened assassin who’ll do what it takes to protect his boss. But when Will moves on the billionaire at an elite party, things with Will and Kit take an unexpected—sexy—twist.

Born and raised on a slaver’s ship, Amalia is a survivor of a race believed to have been extinguished in a planetary disaster. For three generations, her family has been the prized property of Gruuk. In the next few days, she will be forced to participate in her master’s psi talent breeding program. Escaping and attending the Fastening ceremony on Xelix Prime to find a mate and protector is her only hope.
Like most Xelixian males, cousins Khel and Lhor are Tainted. They are shunned by their own people because of the disease that mars their bodies and ensures a painful early death. It can only be reversed by mating. Xelixian females are rare. Pearls, the females that produce the curative chemical, are even more so. The chances of finding two Pearls, of any species, willing to accept heavily Tainted males, are virtually non-existent. Despite their status and wealth, the cousins are running out of time.
Between Gruuk’s dogged pursuit, deadly rivalries, assassins and corrupt nobles, can they keep Amalia safe or will their respective feelings for her tear them apart?
This MFM novel is a constant toe-curling, action-packed thriller, and the first book in the Veredian Chronicles series. It is a standalone with no cliffhanger.
My Rating: 5 stars
Okay, I am that type of blogger who reads the weirdest books and always read all kinds of books. When I saw Escaping Fate's blurb, I knew I had to read it. It had such an enticing storyline with a weird sci-fi vibe that definitely caught my eye. I only read one sci-fi and no book had surpassed that but I found myself so surprised that I found another sci-fi/alien that delivered the goods. Escaping Fate was such an interesting and explosive sci-fi book that had me so excited to point that I was going crazy.
Escaping Fate was a book that pulled me in. There was just something so special about it that totally made me pay attention. I was reading something very different and unique and it definitely sated my reading taste buds. Riveting. Explosive. Sexy. Drama. Angst. Escaping Fate was a beautiful sci-fi romance that left me begging for more. Escaping Fate was a book packed with enough action that thrilled me. I was transported to another planet while I reading this book. I felt I was in he alien and experiencing their lives. It is because of the writing. The writing was so vivid that I swear I was living the reality of the aliens. I actually thought I was one of them. It reminded me of Star Wars but more edgier,more darker and more sexier that caused a burning hole in my kindle. This book should come with hazard. Warning, this book will make you hot all over. Hahaha. I commend Regine Abel for giving me a book I craved so much for. It was a definite sci-fi beauty that transfixed me.
Meet Amalia, a Veredian woman with such a feisty nature and a survivor and Khel and Lhor, two tainted Xelixian males looking for two Pearls to cure their Taint, together they were such a complicated couple yet had enough drama and angst that brought me to the edge. I was fixated on their relationship. I could not get enough of it. Their relationship was toe curling and enough heat to cause a fire. I loved their struggle as a unit and it was a side that I liked.Not every trio has roses. No there is jealousy and resentment and Regine Abel executed that perfectly. I loved Amalia. She was fierce, strong, loving and caring. Khel was dominant but damn he made me hot. Lhor was different. He was more vulnerable. He cared far more and I absolutely adored him. There are a unit to be reckoned with.
Well, Escaping Fate was amazing. I enjoyed so much that I am going to stalk the author. I have my conspiracy theories and I cannot wait until they are solved. Looking to the next book in the series. It has piqued my curiosity.

When I saw the blurb to Didn't I Warn You, I knew I had to read it. There was just something about the book that I liked. Now I am excited to reveal the cover and it is smoking hot. I totally love it. Check it out below.
From the moment Angelina laid eyes on him, she fell into a fantasy. Mysterious, foreign, gorgeous, Haithem offered her what she needed most—a chance to feel again.
But Haithem is much more than he appears to be. He lives in a world of danger where everything comes at a price.
For Angelina, that price is her future.
He’s ensured the life she’s left behind is in tatters. Made her family believe she’s dead. He talks about protecting her, about keeping her safe, but she can’t distinguish his truth from his lies. She can’t separate her pleasure from his betrayal.
Haithem warned her. He told her he’d make her heart race, her body come alive, and her most primal needs rush to the surface. His for the taking.
He didn’t say she’d come to love the devil who’s destroying her, even as he keeps her prisoner.

Safe in the ivory tower...
Gabriel Miller swears he'll keep me safe. Enemies lurk outside, waiting to strike. An army held back by these walls.
Except some animal instinct warns me the danger is much closer. It's already here. Is Gabriel my protector or my enemy? Is this house a castle or a cage?
There's nowhere for me to go, no one left for me to trust.
No escape from a past determined to capture its prize.
My Rating: 5 stars
This is it. The finale. The final conclusion to such an explosive and thrilling series that had me on pins and needles. The Endgame was an endless cat and mouse game that brought out a lot thrills, emotions and suspense that was a huge rollercoaster trip. It has become my favourite series and made me fall in love with Skye Warren even more. It was definitely a wild journey that I will always remember. Skye Warren keeps getting better and better. The Castle is a testament to that. The Castle proved to be the final catalyst to the Endgame series that definitely the closure I needed.
The Castle was an amazing read. It still had the same storyline that I fell hard in love with. The Castle still caused me shivers down my spine like The Pawn. It still pulled me in. To me, The Castle was my favourite because it tied everything together like a thread. In The Pawn gave me the chills. The Knight gave me so many thrills. However The Castle was the glue for the whole Endgame series. Forbidden. Beguiling. Tense. Vigorous. The Castle shook me up and caused an avalanche deep in my soul. The storyline was still able to grip me and I found myself drunk on it. Full of twists and turns, The Castle told a story of sex, seduction, secrets and the biggest chess game in the art of life. Skye Warren definitely always gives something special in her books. Her writing to me is simply exquisite and her words always excite me beyond measure.
The Castle ends one of the most gripping and dynamic relationship every. One of the most prolific relationship that reminded me of prey and predator. Avery and Gabriel will forever be one of my favourite couples. They were one of the consistent couple I have ever read. They were still the same and I liked it. They were one of the most memorable couple with that special and dark chemistry that pulled me in. I am actually going to miss them because I lived their journey as a couple throughout three books. They filled an empty void within my heart.
Avery really developed in the whole series. In The Pawn, she started all naive and innocent but she rose to be strong and powerful. She rose up to be a Queen. She still had a darkness inside her but she was the headstrong woman I know she would be. Wow, she had a side to her that also made my jaw drop. But she was still the same Avery but with an edge. Gabriel. Oh Gabriel. My dark King in a chess game. He was still dominant. He was still the villain. He was still dangerous. But I still fell hard for him more and more. He had and cold exterior but I know in his heart that he was protective over Avery.
The Castle will remain the pivotal book in the Endgame series. I am going to miss this series because like I said it gave me a journey that I will forever remember. The Castle definitely gave the perfect ending to such an exciting phenomenal. I simply looking forward to what Skye Warren writes next.

The power of pleasure…
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.
He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.

I am excited to reveal the cover This Isn't Fair, Baby by K. Webster. This series is ultimately one of my favourite series of this planet. They are mind blowing dark and suspenseful. Each of the book in the series has enough twists and turns to make you go crazy. The cover is absolutely gorgeous. I can't even wait to read it. Check out the cover below.
***This is the sixth book in the series. First five books must be read in order to fully understand this story line.***
The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place.
He wasn’t just.
He wasn’t FAIR.
He was cruel and hateful and twisted.
But I had this black king figured out.
Or so I thought.
The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments.
That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play.
The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own.
I am not a pawn.
I am not theirs to use and abuse.
I belong to nobody.
There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay.
All’s FAIR in love and war, right?
Definitely not this time.
This Isn’t Fair, Baby is a dark romance. Extreme sexual themes 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.

I love Aleatha Romig and her books. She is known for her darker books but she is going to be releasing a new book in a different genre. I am so excited. Check out what the book is about and also preorder it.
A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.
But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.
And I don't date men like him.
Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.
For one weekend, he's my plus-one.
Beautiful and unobtainable.
From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.
Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?
It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.
You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.
In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.
Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.
Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.
*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.
My Rating: 4 stars
OMG. i absolutely adored reading Bossed. It was a book that certainly tickled my bones in a huge way. When I started reading Bossed, it hooked me in from the first page and I got such a rush and a sublime feeling that I could not help but smile. It made me so darn happy. It reminded me of those romantic comedies that gives yo butterflies and sweetest feelings ever. Bossed gave me butterflies. I do not normally read rom com but if it is written by Sloane Howell, I will definitely read because he gives something totally unique and you just cannot help but just fall in love with his books.
Bossed totally made me feel good. It is a pleasant read that totally gives you a soothing feeling and you only wanted to just sit down and fully let the book take you on a ride. Bossed really brought out a lot of emotions in me. It made me laugh. It made me smile. It made me angry. It made swoon. It was such a delightful and charming story that made me melt and just brought a slight giddiness in me. It was definitely a goldmine in my eyes. Humorous, sarcastic and witty. Bossed combined both Sloane Howell's signature style of witty banter that made the story so infectious. It certainly touched me a whole lot more. I always love Sloane Howell's books because they are books that feed the soul. Sometimes that is all you need. In Bossed, I would have wanted more for the story. I felt certain parts of the story were too rushed and I think some parts needed more development. It did deliver on heat and I did feel it but I would have wanted more on the plot.
Bossed introduced us to Jenny, an accountant and Ethan, a sports agent who both had so much chemistry between. They had such witty banter that totally made me laugh but also have a connection to them that I really liked a lot. I would have wanted Sloane Howell to develop their relationship a bit more but I totally loved Jenny and Ethan together. They seemed to bring the best in each other. Jenny was snarky, sarcastic, funny and feisty. I loved that she held no bras a t all and could go toe to toe with Ethan. He had so much fierceness I certainly enjoyed. I loved her loyalty to her dad and her love for him showed she had a vulnerability that gave an edge to her character. I love assholes and Ethan was asshole. A big douche but I fell in love with him. I know he wanted control in all aspects of his life but it was so funny to see him fumble a lot. Downright hilarious. He did have some flaws but come on he was one hot male perfection I wanted to take a sweet ride on. Just saying lol.
Bossed certainly an awesome read and it made me love Sloane Howell's writing even more.

Excerpt from Sara's POV
I meet his gaze, and everything inside me jolts. It feels like I got shocked with a defibrillator. For the first time, I see him in the light of day without alcohol or drugs in my system.
For the first time, I fully comprehend how dangerous he is.
He’s leaning back in his chair, his long, jean-clad legs stretched out and crossed at the ankles under the small round table. It’s a casual pose, but there’s nothing casual about the dark power that rolls off him in waves. He’s not just dangerous; he’s lethal. I see it in the metallic ice of his gaze and the coiled readiness of his large body, in the arrogant set of his jaw and the cruel curve of his lips.
This is a man who lives and breathes violence, an apex predator for whom rules of society don’t exist.
A monster who’s tortured and killed countless people.
The surge of anger and hatred that comes with the thought cuts through my fear, and I take a step forward, then another and another until I’m walking toward him on almost steady legs. If he wanted to kill me, he could’ve already done it in a million different ways, so whatever he wants today must be something different.
Something even more evil.
“Hello, Sara,” he says, rising to his feet as I approach. “It’s good to see you again.”
His deep voice wraps around me, his soft Russian accent caressing my ears. It should sound ugly, that voice from my nightmares, but like everything else about him, it’s deceptively appealing.
“What do you want?” I’m being rude, but I don’t care. We’re long past politeness and good manners. There’s no use pretending this is a normal get-together.
The only reason I’m here is because not showing up could endanger my parents.
“Please, sit.” He motions to the chair across from him and sits down. “I took the liberty of ordering a cup of coffee for you. Black, no sugar… and decaf, since you’re not working today.”
I glance at the second cup—prepared exactly the way I would’ve ordered it—then meet his gaze again. My heart drums in my throat, but my voice is even as I say, “You have been watching me.”
“Yes, of course. But you figured that out last night, didn’t you?”
I flinch. I can’t help it. If he saw me try to make that call, then he saw me stagger drunkenly into the bathroom and come out naked.
If he’s been watching me for a while, he’s seen me in all sorts of private moments.
“Sit, Sara.” He gestures at the chair again, and this time, I obey—if only to give myself a chance to calm down. Rage and fear are a tangle of live wires in my chest, and I feel like I’m one deep breath away from exploding.
I’ve never been a violent person, but if I had a gun on me, I’d shoot him. I’d blow his brains all over the trendy Starbucks wall.
“You hate me.” He says it calmly, as a statement of fact rather than a question, and I stare at him, caught off-guard.
Does he read minds, or am I that transparent?
“It’s okay,” he says, and I catch a glimmer of amusement in his eyes. “You can admit it. I promise not to hurt you today.”
Today? What about tomorrow and the day after? My hands form into fists under the table, my nails digging into my skin. “Of course I hate you,” I say as steadily as I can manage. “Is that a surprise?”
“No, of course not.” He smiles, and my lungs tighten, preventing me from breathing. It’s not a perfect smile—his teeth are white, but one is slightly crooked on the bottom, and his lower lip has a tiny scar that wasn’t visible until now—but it’s magnetic nonetheless.
It’s a smile nature designed for one purpose only: to lure in unwary women and make them forget the monster underneath.
My Rating: 5 stars
OH MY BLOODY GOSH. WHAT A BOOK. Like seriously, I did not expect this book at all. I was hit so hard by this book. Hit hard, Wham bam, thank you ma'am. Geez, I am still reeling from such an explosive book. Wow, I am completely floored. Utterly spent. I love Anna Zaires. Maybe it is because she introduced me to sci-fi romance and I was hooked to her words. Or maybe she comes up with interesting and addictive stories that make you crave them to the point of insanity. Nevertheless I am now a big fan. Tormentor Mine was a story of all stories. It was a story that was out of this world that it shook me out my system.
Tormentor Mine was a dark relic that sparked so much energy inside me. It was a book that literally made my mind shift on so many different directions that I swear that I was so confused. But it was a good confusion. Dark, Foreboding, Psychotic. Poetic. Thrilling. Enticing. Tormentor Mine was a book that gave me so much suspense which was dripped in honey and sex. It was an erotic journey I wanted to be a part of. Tormentor Mine that had a compelling story with an edge that totally blew my mind. Tormentor Mine gave me so much thrills and chills that I felt my whole body overcome with them. Anna Zaires gave me such a great book that spiraled. Her words are so freaking amazing that I was completely stunned. They held so much beauty and eloquent darkness that threatened to burst inside my heart. They touched me on another level that I felt that darkness. I felt that rush and adrenaline of suspense. She has a way with her writing that brings so much imagination. She is certainly a very talented author. I bow down to her greatness.And of course, lets not forget her dangerous and pulsing hot scenes that brought so much heat and passion to the story itself. To me, this book held a special meaning to me. It was a story loving beyond hatred. Loving beyond the monster inside you. I loved that.
In Tormentor Mine, I was introduced to Peter and Sara, a very different couple with so much epic proportions. They reminded me of a discovery channel program about a lion attacking antelope. They were like predator and prey. It was certainly thrilling to watch their interaction as a couple. It certainly had me on the edge of my seat. They had that psychotic chemistry that had me scratching my head. They were totally an insane couple and I totally was pulled into their drama. Sara to me was so naive. I know. She had a great job but she had a certain darkness that was a bit interesting to see. I think in a way she was a helper although she thrust in a world so dangerous that I felt sorry for her. Peter is a enigmatic. He is domineering, dangerous, psycho and a tad bit hot. Hahaha He made me my knees most times. But damn, he was male specimen of perfection. I wanted a bite of him.
Tormentor Mine was a bold read that pulled me in from the first page to the last. I was stuck in a vortex threatening to sink me in. It is definitely the book to read. But trust me you will be needing a drink lol.
