Forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest.

It had been years since I had seen her.
Years since I last saw those eyes with pure, raw innocence.
So much time had passed since I lusted after what I knew I should resist.

But she was so right.
And I was so wrong.

To claim her as mine was breaking the rules. Boundaries should not be broken. But temptation weakens my resolve.
With the pull of my dark desires…
I know that I can’t hide from my sinful thoughts—and actions—forever.

*Devils & Rye is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a splash of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a sip of this TOP SHELF cocktail.

Review: Cinderella: The Brothers Grimm Story Told as a Novella

Cinderella: The Brothers Grimm Story Told as a Novella by Mike Klaassen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Gentler than Brothers Grimm yet darker than Disney, Author Mike Klaassen freshes up a beloved fairy tale for a longer bedtime story. In the original Brothers Grimm, the story is a bit shorter and much bloodier. As a fan of the original Brothers Grimm, this tale is not what I expected. Quite frankly, I thought it was going to be an erotically charged adult fantasy. I was dead wrong.

Instead, this is a lengthier telling of Cinderella with a bit of witchy twist. The characters are not fully developed. The stepmother and step-sisters are still as shallow as ever and a bit one dimensional. A nice historical element added gives this story a little bit more realistic flavour. Although the magic part does relegate it back to fairy tale status.

I liked Ella in this story. She does the best she can with what little she knows of herself. She is sweet and brave even after being beaten down. She could …

Review: War of Hearts

War of Hearts by Julia Sykes
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Two sexy dangerous men and one very young innocent woman . . . how will they corrupt her? In this new series, it features mafia men and the woman they love. Mafia genre and new adult are usually ones I avoid. This one, I gave it a try and the tale pleasantly surprised me with the daddy kink.

The characters, Marco, Joseph and Ashlyn are straightforward and uncomplicated. Ashlyn is a rather sheltered latchkey kid. When she unknowingly gets involved with a handsome bartender, Joseph, she is taken into a criminal world without consent. Full disclosure, I avoid reading new adult books because for the most part, the characters act their age and I'm way past this kind of bratty immaturity. Ashlyn throws some temper tantrums which showcase her age and need of a good spanking. Luckily for her, Marco is happy to step up and give her the much needed spankings.

To enjoy this book, forget about the mafia angle, the over-privileged brats a…

Review: Not So Human

Not So Human by Jeannette Dilouie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When men in black come after you and you are not an alien, it may be time to run. Sabrina is living the life of a drone. Bored to death of her dead end job which makes little to no use of her degree, she is wishing for a bit more to life. There is a reason why the phrase, "be careful of what you wish for" exists. Before Sabrina knows it, her entire life history is rewritten. Specifically, she is not human.

Ms. Dilouie creates a familiar world where a select group of humans are irrationally trying to kill off anything that is not human. In this world, non-humans are covert and the humans who do know about the non-humans are haters. It is rather disgusting and typical of covert human hate groups, bent on heinous acts of torture and experimentation. Sabrina is a fae princess who is thrown into an unbelievable world of magic and sexy good looking men.

This first book gives a tiny glimpse into the fae world. Ms. Dilouie sk…

Review: Defining Human

Defining Human by Candace Blevins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ready to be thrown for a loop? Buy this book now. Read this book in the order written. Defining Human will make no sense if the first three books are not read. A few of the novellas in this world would help too, specifically Indentured Freedom. The excitement I felt waiting for this book is indescribable. When I finally received the much coveted arc, I devoured the book and proceeded to curse whilst being aroused. It is recommended to read this book in the privacy of your own home or anywhere non-public. The sex and BDSM is out of this world.

I had a hard time with this book. I guess I was expecting for more answers and for the series to hit the peak and start winding down. I was completely wrong. This book continues to build to a much anticipated explosive confrontational climax between good and evil. At this point,…

Review: Unraveled

Unraveled by Lauren Dane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read this book now! Ms. Dane starts another emotionally packed series that hits me hard in the heart. I devoured this erotic romance in one sitting. It is a page turning and a must read. Be forewarned, it is angsty and will most likely cause a book hangover.

Always a fan of Ms. Dane, her most powerful romances come from ones where broken families create their own families. This formula works well for Ms. Dane and she does it so exquisitely. In this one, Maybe Dolan's life has been tumultuous as the hated younger child. The cuts Maybe suffers from her parents are so sharp, she bleeds out with no one noticing.

I loved Maybe. She is a character who is strong and a survivor. What she experienced in her family is a disgrace. How her parents could have treated her the way she was treated is unfathomable to me. It is only due to the love of her aunt and uncle she survives her childhood somewhat intact. The scenes between Maybe and her fat…

Review: Mine to Save

Mine to Save by Diana Gardin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Betraying a man whilst he is in a war zoning fighting for our country is pretty low. This is exactly what Bennett's wife, Valarie does to him. She also acts as if it is no big deal; as if he was the one who is wrong. Taking a person off a war zone does not mean their fighting tendencies are immediate turned off. For Bennett, one heated moment causes a regret that can not be easily overcome. Like most ex-cons, it is difficult to get a job after he's done his time. Luckily for Bennett, he is taken under another's wing and runs a bar. When an old friend asks him to help save his fiance, Bennett does what he did best... blow shit up.

Bennett considered that a one time favour. Now, his buddy's company is looking to hire him. Accepting a job in the Rescue Ops team at Night Eagle Security would fill a missing piece for Bennett. He isn't made for inaction. But how can he trust them just as how can they trust a felon? Thi…

Review: The Lucky Ones

The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When it comes to having my mind blown, I can trust in Ms. Reisz. Full disclosure, she is an auto read author. I do not even look at the book blurb. I see her name and grab the book. Going in blind is sometimes the best experience. I had no expectations and figured it would be a kinky romance or perhaps a bit different perspective of contemporary romance. If you are expecting erotica, kink or happy contemporary romance, walk away. This book is an intense roller-coaster ride of viewing the past from a different perspective. What one thinks happened may not be what really happened.

Allison is all alone in the world. One who lost all her family except a distant relative who pulls her away from her foster family. She was adopted by Dr. Vincent Capello who is a renown brain surgeon. Allison thought she found her forever home but when she experiences and "accident" as a kid, she is forced to leave this happy home. Since they n…

Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?
