Nobody's Angel by Kallypso Masters

REVIEWED BY Isa Jones

Masters at Arms & Nobody's Angel by Kallypso Masters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Kallypso's stories she always brings so much depth and emotion into her books and this was evident in Nobody's Angel.

We are introduced to the Masters In Arms men and our first Dom is Marc D'Alessio. However we still get glimpses into the other characters and I can't wait to read all their stories.

As Marc is preparing to make the rounds in the club, he is in charge of monitoring some of the scenes. He stops when he hears crying and someone asking for her Dom to stop. He quickly realises the "wannabe" Dom is going beyond the subs limits and stops the scene immediately. Releasing her from the restraints he soon assesses she's gone into subspace and tries to ease the pain helping her recover.

Angelina wanted to experience BDSM, she's read some novels that have spiked her curiosity and feels ready to try something with her partner Allan; she …

Slaying Isidore's Dragons by C. Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am speechless.

It has taken me a while to write a review for this book and I do extend an apology to the writer, This book was just special, unforgettable, it is one of those books that leaves you with a sense of contentment. That regardless of the poignant storyline it will forever be a part of you.

Isidore has been hurt. In the most indescribable and unbelievable of ways. He has endured physical and verbal abuse in the hands of not one but several people, and what is worse they are his family. As the son of two Ambassadors, Isidore’s life has always been a struggle. The only person who truly loved him has been taken away from him in a horrific car bombing and it is but a miracle that he still manages to have his mind and heart intact.

Declan is the son also of two Ambassadors. His life although different from Isidore’s, has also been marked by the horrific ordeal of having lost his dad in a …

Stripped Bare by Rebecca Moon

REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe

Stripped Bare by Rebecca Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sally Parker is just a shell after changing her life to please someone else. Her self esteem is non exstant. She is now 'hiding' from life. Working from home and rarely going outside it's door. I could really relate to Sally as I saw my own Mother change to try to make a man happy and she also was a living 'shell'.

She has a few really good friends Chelsea, Macy and Jason. They don't know what to do help her get her self esteem back. Through Macy she reconnects with an old school friend, Damien Johnson. He is beyond shocked in the change in Sally from high school and makes it his mission to take small steps in getting Sally to become more like her old self.

Damien focus is on Sally and doesn't mention his own hell. Which comes back to bit him and nearly destroys them both.

Though Sally shows us all how strong a person she really is and picks up the pieces and attempts to move on.

REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe

Stripped Raw by Rebecca Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Erin Stancliffe is one strong young lady. She overcame how she was brought up to raise her young son by herself. Even put herself through college. To get a 'fresh' start on life she moves to a better neighborhood when she starts her nursing career.

Through her job she meets Jason Cunningham, whom we met in Stripped Bare. He is basically a man whore. There is something about Erin that takes a hold of Jason. Through her he becames the man he is supposed to be and through him Erin learns to trust again and realize that they are 'good' men out there.

They are both struggling to overcome their pasts to gain a future together. Which is not easy to do when both their pasts cause havoc in their present.

I liked getting to know the 'real' Jason. I also liked at the end of the book Macy, his cousin, who we also met in Stripped Bare, pops in with some turmoil and you just know there is going to …

Girl Tripping; a sweet, romantic comedy by Gina LaManna

REVIEWED BY Monique Cashmere

Girl Tripping: a sweet, romantic comedy by Gina LaManna
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My favourite type of book is a romantic comedy, and this one fits the bill brilliantly. Gina LaManna is a great young author that is perfecting her craft with every new novel and this one is my favourite to date.

Lena is a New Yorker who is having a bad month. She breaks up with her boyfriend, looses her job because of said boyfriend and he won't relinquish her puppy, Harry. The only good thing going for her at the moment is a competition she entered, and won, regarding a trip she fabricated about her book buddies. So in order to claim the money, they try to replicate the tip with photos only things never seem to go as planned for poor Lena.

Gina is fast becoming a new one click author for me. She never disappoints. She has a knack of creating characters with depth and adds the right amount of humor. Of course with a touch or more of romance and you have won me over.

REVIEWED BY Monique Cashmere


When the Chips are Down by Beth Rinyu
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever wondered what happened to your high school crush? What would you do if you bumped into him again after 20 years? Would he be the same cheeky, smart alec boy, or had he matured?

Melanie Hanson has had a big year. Her marriage of 18 or so years has ended. She has moved her twin girls back to be close to her home town. She is now part owner of a bridal shop with her mother. One thing that has been a constant - her bestie Jodi.

Jodi convinces Mel to take a trip to Mexico and to start to live her life again. And you know the old saying, What happens in Mexico, Stays in Mexico - Or does it?!!!

This story is about a woman in her late 30's having to find her feet after her marriage ends, and hopefully finding love again, even if it is with the boy she loved to hate in high school.

I picked this book up on a lazy Sunday and decided it was so much more better than doing my ironing. I was…

Saving Grace by Kristen Proby

REVIEWED BY Micky Barnard

Saving Grace by Kristen Proby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's always a challenge with a novella to feel completeness and fullness of reading. This novella from a favourite series of mine did both. It's a sweet tale with spark, wit and heat. There are splashings of the previous couples in the series but really just snapshots however, I was more than happy for Grace and Jacob to take centre stage. The bachelorette party for Grace's friends is going to take place in snowy Aspen, on the slopes. Despite living in a ski area for 6 years, Grace has never learnt. Her friends have bought her lessons and an overnight stay at the local ski lodge in preparation. She meets Jacob there.

This read is sweet and funny, with depth. An ideal novella.

A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.

Deliver Me by Faith Gibson

REVIEWED BY Isa Jones

Deliver Me by Faith Gibson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh how I love to discover new Authors and how I love to fall in love with their stories.

Taggart/Lee had it all. The fame, the fortune, the sex, drugs and rock and roll. However after a family tragedy he is brought back to the real world and suddenly he is not so happy. Having been entrusted with a precious gift, he soon realises he is totally out of his depth. Alas one day he runs Into a charming Samaritan and the story takes flight.
Mr "Samaritan" who is actually a Doctor, or Erik, in the eyes of Taggart is a God. Such a beautiful man with a beautiful heart. Fate keeps throwing them together and soon sparks are flying. But, Erik has been hurt by someone who he had given his heart to, so is not easily persuaded into jumping someone's bones regardless of how that someone gets his heart beating and his blood pumping in every single part of his body.

Taggart is used to be chased, by screaming fans f…

Corrupt by Penelope Douglas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One Word,

INTENSE

This is a real crude, cathartic, and extremely chilling story.
If you love straightforward plots and traditional happy endings you are best advised to avoid this book, you have been warned. However if you like twisted, dark, crude, honest and fast paced romantic tales, then you must download this and get ready for a wild ride!

I didn't read any of the reviews before I read this book as I knew by the blurb it was going to be different, so I didn't want anything clouding my judgement or giving me a glimpse into what I was about to read.
I'm not keen on writing spoilers and it would present a very hard test for me to write a detailed review without giving things away.

All I have to say is, You can't escape your fate, misunderstandings can be extremely dangerous, and regardless of what a person throws at you, if you love them with every fibre of your being, nothing will ever chang…

The Boss Serial: Book Two by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

I'm loving the progression of this series although honestly, I just wanted to throw something across the room (and at the authors!) when I got to the end!

I'm really enjoying getting to know Grace and Blake a little better and I just really just need more from them now! I have questions begging for answers and I'm hoping we get to the nitty gritty very soon!

These books must be read in order. As I mentioned, I'm loving the series and definitely recommend it.

Banged:Rock Stars, bad Boys & Dirty Deeds by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott

REVIEWED By Melinda Lazar

Banged: Rock Stars, Bad Boys & Dirty Deeds by Madelynne Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Painkiller by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott, part of the Banged Anthology: Rock Stars, Bad Boys, and Dirty Deeds.

This was a great little introduction to the First Hit series and is a cross over between the writing duos Lost in Oblivion series and Cari Quinn's Tapped-Out series.

Without going into much detail, this novella is pretty much the first meeting and encounter between rocker Johnny Cage and MMA Fighter Evie Pierce. And what a meeting it is! Very good, gripping, scorching. Their strong personalities were definitely coming through and I'm looking forward to finding out their secrets and how they'll be dealt with.

Men Of Mayhem by Soraya Naomi

Image
REVIEWED By Melinda Lazar

Men of Mayhem by J.L. Beck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For Cesare by Soraya Naomi, part of the Men of Mayhem (A Mafia Anthology).

This review is for Soraya Naomi's book in the anthology, For Cesare. This was a great short story and can be read independent of one of my favorite mafia series, the Chicago Syndicate.

In this, we get a cross between a friends to lovers romance and a second chance romance. The characters are intriguing and even for a short, I had a bit of a surprise at one point. A great story, fast-paced, and one that left me wanting more. I liked the characters, Cesare and Kinsey, and hope that they'll make an appearance in future Syndicate books.

Denial by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

I was totally drawn into this book, the story, the characters and the writing. It started so strong and didn't let go until the end and in fact, with that ending, I'm keeping hold of my thoughts and suspicions as I wait avidly for the second book.

Ella wakes up in a hospital in Italy with no memory of anything beyond being attacked in a dark alleyway. She has the concussion, blinding headache and amnesia as tangible proof. She awakes to Kayden, a man ready to stay by her side but there's something familiar about him and she cannot immediately trust his seemingly genuine concern. Ella knows one thing, she was on run. From what, she isn't certain. This books winds an interesting, suspenseful path through Ella's patchy memories and there are only so many answers in this book. The chemistry between Ella and Kayden was totally engaging and I liked these two but I felt Ella's trepid…

Thin Love by Eden Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you're in the mood for an angst-driven read, this is the book for you. I've had a few book friends recommend this book and I'd heard it was angsty and felt in the mood. Thin Love delivered on that promise and I enjoyed the push-pull, love-anger ride.

Kiera and Kona come from opposite tracks. Kona is a football giant with a player reputation that has been hard earned. Kiera is a talented musician and songwriter, not the least interested in Kona. These two put together on a class assignment but it's fireworks and aggression everytime they speak. Their relationship also has a different kind of fireworks and it's fantastic reading. I went from wanting them together to thinking they needed to be apart, again and again. Their mothers are another story completely.

This book moved from the present to the past and back to the present. I loved the timeline and the promise of finally finding out wha…

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Loved it! The story line is super unique. I won't go into detail to prevent any spoilers, but it was clever! I enjoyed reading something that was a change of pace compared to the traditional romance.

I liked Alexei's character. I think Helena did a great job of presenting him; especially his accent. I could easily connect with him and easily picture his appearance, actions, etc. Gabriella's character was a little mousy thing that I could easily picture as well. I often enjoy the mafia type books and this one definitely did not disappoint! Definitely would recommend.

Crave by Kiara Delaney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Free Dictionary says:

crave (kreɪv)

v. craved, crav•ing. v.t.
1. to long for; desire eagerly.
2. to require; need: a problem craving your prompt attention.
3. to ask earnestly for.
v.i.
4. to beg or plead (usu. fol. by for).


This is the first book I read from this Author and I was thoroughly surprised.

It is very hard now days to find a story that has all the elements that make it a great read, an engaging and fresh plot, well matched characters,in case of Romance stories, plenty of passion, some twists and something which in my opinion is vital, that is well written. I believe this is the case with Crave. It certainly engaged me from the start and ok the story is not different from many of its kind, but all the other factors were there.

Oh boy! okay, let's first have the warning if you have read 'Love Plus One' by this Author in the G-Men series wait till you read the whole book before sending out a message because you're cheesed off at how the story is developing. Yep, I had to refrain myself BIG TIME. I was thinking the friendship is out the window LOL!!

This book is Taz's story and what a story it is. He really is a great guy, he's got everything going for him, good looks, fantastic in bed, great career, wonderful husband, awesome father.

Jesse's Diner by Cardeno C.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Lunch anyone? I recommend Jesse's Diner. Tanner who now runs the diner is an amazing cook. He was left the diner when his mentor and very good friend, Jesse passed away, the man was the closest thing he had to a father.

Mike is Tanner's best friend since school and also the son of Jesse. Actually Mike has two dad's the other is Steve. It never bothered Mike being brought up by a gay couple, he is very protective of his family and that includes Tanner.

Mike has a problem and asks Tanner for help, he believes his dad, Steve is missing Jesse terribly and not coping. He tells Tanner that he's been forced to take time off work. He wants Tanner to check in on his father as he's away at college. Now Tanner will do anything to help out but he's so nervous, he's had a crush on Steve ever since he met him. Not that he ever did anything about it, Jesse and Mike meant to much to him.

I was hooked on the prologue, although I also knew I was in for a tense ride. Straight off you are given the vibes of something bad that happened but no details, it really doesn't take a genius to work out what. My mind conjured up all sorts of scenario's.

Taking a deep breath I carried on because I was already into the story, I just had to know. Typical nosy female, maybe LOL! I think it was more the writer was just very creative and knew just how to keep the readers, i.e. ME! turning the pages.

Punching and Kissing by Helena Newbury
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm punching the air with excitement after reading this story.
I just downloaded last night and I couldn't put it down.

A tale of love in the roughest of circumstances.

Sylvie's brother is into underground fighting, it's the only way that allows them to earn money to pay the bills, The Pit is the worst place anyone can find themselves in, normally spectators want to see blood and the stakes are high for the loosing side. Things go terribly wrong when his last fight ends not as expected and looses his handler a lot of money. In an attempt to make things right Sylvie offers herself as an alternative for his brother's next fight, it is the only viable solution to save him. But she has no idea what she's gotten herself into and this leads her to the only man who can help her, the man who once came to her rescue and who since that day has been engrained in her memory.

Topping the Alpha by Samantha Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a M/M BDSM book and is a part of the Trident Security Series. We get to know Jake Donovan more indepth and learn how he became the man he is today and what ghosts he has to lay to rest to allow himself to have a future with Nick.

In this story Nick Sawyer is coming to terms on who he is, what he wants to be and who he wants to be with. His struggle is so realistic in today's world.

It's way too easy to give spoilers on this one. I just love the way Samantha Cole writes. I felt pulled into the book from the beginning. I love revisiting with the characters from the previous books. I also like the indepth look we get into the BDSM life.

I love that there is story within a story. Not only is it a story about Nick and Jake it also is story about Trident Security Team as they are on an operative. The twist of intrigue, some humor and the sex makes this a very good book.

Pretty Bird by Olivia Howe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm going to start out with saying this book is phenomenal!

Wow. This book gripped me from the beginning. Once I started I couldn't put it down. The intrigue, the suspense, the twists just kept me hooked.

I felt I was right there with Kenna through everything she went through. Her anticipation to spending some time alone with her forever, being the only survivor in a plane crash, learning her forever didn't make it, discovering there was a secret side, trying to survive that secret side. I loved the role Detective Nathan Smith played too.

Very well down Olivia. This is a very powerful book!!! I absolutely loved it!

This is the first book in this trilogy and it started with a bang!
Ella has lost her sister in the worst possible way, when she finds her  journal she discovers her sisters inner most feelings,  she vows to break the man who lead to her sisters demise.  She spends 3 years mastering the art of manipulation and how to make men fall at her feet.  This has prepared her to destroy Damon Hunt, however she wasn't prepared to have her own heart destroyed.

I loved the fast pace and flow of the book.  Fair warning there is a cliff hanger as to be expected in a trilogy, but by the end of this book you will be frantic for the next instalment.

Not Negotiable by Samantha Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We had read about these two characters in His Angel, I actually love how Ms Cole drops little hints in her stories as to who we are going to read about next.

I'm glad she gave Parker and Shelby a story as it was a thoroughly entertaining one.

Because Parker isn't part of the elite group of the Trident security sexy six pack boys, the story wasn't as explosive or suspenseful as per the other books, as well as the fact that Shelby is a submissive and established in the lifestyle there were no elements of introducing her into the world of BDSM, however we see sparks of the more passionate kind and the story, as short as it was, gave me the same enjoyment and satisfaction after reading.

Shelby comes across as a firecracker and full of sass personality, but she is holding a secret, one that prevents her from letting herself fall for any of the single Doms in the Covenant club; in particular Master Par…

OMG this book was hilarious and wrong, and brilliant and everything you want to be able to write one day if you have the chance and someone had the guts to do it!

Sophie and Luke are from different ends of any spectrum, social, economical and personal, they couldn't be more wrong for each other even if they tried. But that doesn't stop Sophie from fantasising about Luke, every day as he comes to get his coffee where Sophie works.
It all seems quite innocent, Sophie laughs and has great banter with her best friend every day after Luke's daily visit, and let's face it who wouldn't, he is good looking, he dresses nice, he smells divine and has the most amazing hands, so yes Sophie has her daily fix and then moves on, apart from when she's in bed at night and images of Luke keep replaying in her mind.
It's all fun and games until Sophie has to visit the campus clinic to get contraception. You see…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars.

This read was a breath of fresh as the storyline was unusual and captured a unique immigration situation alongside two very compelling characters. This book engaged my attention completely and I found myself wrapped up in Elisa and Aiden's world.

Elisa is a brilliant scientist in the making, at the end of her degree programme but graduation spells the end of her permission to remain in the US. She has reasons for not wanting to return to the UK. Elisa has found family in some fellow immigrants and this book paints a compassionate picture of their life and desire to remain. Elisa poses for an artist to supplement her living expenses and Aiden Hale buys some of the paintings. Aiden is a wonderful, flawed character, I was drawn to him and wanted to dig deeper to know how he ticked. This book ended in a way that was most unexpected at had me aghast, inwardly screaming and left longing.

True Love by Melissa Pearl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first Melissa Pearl book but I feel sure it won't be my last.

Some great twist in this book and it is not your normal rock star romance, it is so much more.

Ness is the drummer in Chaos and has been in love with Jimmy the lead singer since high school.

Jimmy cares for all the band members but is the normal rock star player.

Several events are set in motion that change everything. True Love is a story of heart break, loss and fighting your way back to yourself. May not be who your thought you would be but maybe its a better you, or just a different you.

Melissa tells us to love ourselves first then you have the ability to love someone else. Music is healing for all the characters and I connect with that as I love music and how it can change my moods.

I love Nessa's stubborness and her weakness.
Jimmy is not perfect but his patience is a wonderful thing.

I was so happy to see a new book by Jillian Dodd. I started it straight off - late one night. I literally had to tell myself to step away from the iPad and get some sleep. I woke the next morning cancelling all other matters to finish it.

I loved all the characters - Ashlyn the young beautiful actress that wants to find not only a true love but the security and kinship that comes with it.
Cash, the cheeky lawyer who is ready to come back into the family fold after experiencing a life in another state. And Cash's brothers and sister (who I have my fingers crossed for books 2, 3, & 4!)

What I also adored about this book is that I have been lucky enough to have travelled to Vegas and LA and it was a treasure reading and reminiscing about these places again.

The two main characters are delightful together. They have instant chemistry and wittiness that are a pleasure to read.
