*Thank you to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.

Jackson Dean is a changed man—at least he thinks he is—but when a brush with the past leads him back into territory he’s long since left behind, he finds himself at war with his conscience. Snatching Savannah Harper from a Brooklyn street may have been okay with the wild and reckless guy he used to be, but what about now? 

Savannah is used to a life of brutality at the hands of her husband, but being stuffed into the trunk of a car by a brown-eyed stranger injects a fresh wave of terror into her heart. 

What transpires between Jackson and Savannah surprises both of them. Despite the unconventional way they’re thrown together, they form a bond that begins to challenge everything they know.

His Past. Her present. Their future.

Surrendering to the feelings they’ve unearthed will be a minefield, but it’s going up against the unknown that tests them to their limits. 

As the lines between perception and reality blur, it appears that nothing is as it seems.

Perception is not reality… and reality can be soul-destroying.

Perception. What an apt name for one of the most enthralling novels I have ever read!

I can’t quite put my fingers to it, but something about Kendra Leigh’s writing just pulls me in and before I know it, it feels as if I was right beside the characters, experiencing what they are feeling. The pain that eats them up inside, the intense emotions of love but having to walk away, and even to the point where hope starts to blossom within Savannah!

Perception is a novel that that would capture your full attention to the very end!

I can promise this – reading Perception would definitely give you an out-of-the-world experience!

As a reader, I don’t feel as if I am just reading the words written by the amazing Kendra Leigh. No, it feels more like I am experiencing the whole thing. The different emotions running high in the characters, the decisions they made, the consequences they face… It is truly an extraordinary feeling!

I believe the author has a flair for making the first meeting between the characters an unexpected one. Nothing is as it seems. That, and also her endings are often extremely satisfying, if not more. Her novels are not just the usual hot-brooding-stranger-with-a-past meeting a terror-stricken woman who’s suffering, and rescuing her from the hellhole she’s in.

It’s not just about the connection between two people, how they helped each other to survive their nightmares, It’s also about how they find a new purpose in life, how they break free from their prison and, how they rise from the ashes, burning brightly as the idea of life taking on a new meaning blossoms in heart and mind.

What I really love about Perception, is the lesson it teaches. Not just to those who were, or who still are suffering from Savannah went through, but also those who resign to their fate, even after they have a taste of what it feels like to be free from their cages. Not every Sparrow has their Bear, but however small hope may seem, however far, grab onto it and don’t give up.

Not to give too much away, but the bond between the Sparrow and her Bear is truly my favourite! Without her Bear, she might not have been able to fly freely in the sky. When it comes to Savannah and Jackson, the intensity of their emotions is literally of the charts, and I don’t even mean the physical contact between them!

Alright, before I start going on and on, and into way too many details, there is one particular scene that I love very much. It has something to do with fire! That is just one classic scene and honestly, I could picture it in my head. The image of Savannah becoming a phoenix and rising from the ashes burns brightly in my imagination!

Enough from me! I would definitely highly recommend this novel for readers who love a little action, revenge and love in their reads!

New Month, New Blog, New Book Releases! ^_^ :D

A huge hello to everyone who has been with me since 2014 and if you’re new, welcome to my blog!

It has been nearly a year since I’ve last posted anything here. To make it worse, it has also been the same period of time since I last read a book and review it!

Gah! The horror! 😭😭😭

So now, I feel that I am ready to ease myself back into this wonderful world of reading and reviewing!

Probably looking at a new look, new logo (😂😂😂), new banner, etc. If I ever get around to designing one, that is! 😌😌😌

To kickstart, lets start with a few new releases!

 

First up! The third novel in the Ridden Hard series by Allyson Lindt!

 

Amazon

When the past and present collide, is the risk of falling in love worth the reward?

The entire network for Spencer’s theme park crashes on Christmas Eve, and it’s the rotten cherry on top of an already sucky night. Fortunately, the on-call tech is the perfect distraction. Sexy, smart… and his best friend’s much younger sister. Talk about off-limits.

Trina’s ready to give the asshole on the other end of the support line a piece of her mind—how dare he take out his frustrations on her because his night is going bad? When she comes face-to-face with the gorgeous owner of her company’s biggest client, drooling replaces anger. She’s always had a thing for Spencer, but her memory lied about just how hot he is.

Trina has a hard enough time proving she’s as good, or better, at her job than the guys she works with, without adding in another rumor about her sleeping her way into the position. And Spencer’s ex-wife is looking for a way to prove he can’t keep it in his pants when it comes to the women he works with.

Is riding the wave of lust worth the risk, or will it bring everything they’ve worked for crashing down around them?

Check out the teaser below! Beware, its HOT!

For the anthology lovers, check out Scars to your Beautiful!

 

Amazon

Seven authors bring you stories inspired by “Scars to your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara.

Stories from eating disorders, weight issues, physical scarring and bullying; all problems we’ve had to bear in our life some way or another.

These stories will show you how your scars don’t define who you are, they simply tell a story of where you’ve been.

YOU ARE ENOUGH, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE AMAZING. BE YOU, AND BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR SKIN.

Build your foundation from the bricks thrown at you, rather than live under them because your imperfections make you beautiful.

Stories by Jaye Cox, Becca L’Amour, Riann C. Miller , Candace Candy Dowds Author, Kam Newton, Stacey Broadbent Author, and Aria Peyton  

All proceeds are going to charity.

Next up! For those who love mythology and mysterious sexiness with their romance, check out Secret Husband by Normandie Alleman!

 

Amazon

Psyche’s new husband only appears to her at night, and she’s not allowed to see him.

At first she finds this strange, but before long she falls so deeply in love with him, she forgets all about the unusual conditions of her arranged marriage.

But once she hears the rumor that her husband is actually a monster, she becomes obsessed with discovering the truth. Determined not to be deceived, she finally unmasks the man she loves, and risks destroying the one relationship that has brought her happiness.

Secret Husband is a re-telling of the love story between Cupid and Psyche. It was inspired by the original tale from mythology, spiced up a bit, and was previously published in the Legends & Lore boxed set. 

 

Last but not least, the author who introduced me to the world of MC Romance! Sapphire Knight is back with Chevelle!

 

Amazon

Release Date: May 22nd, 2018

Mercenary
She was just a job.
I needed to get in and uncover the Iron Fists’ next move. They’d hit the Oath Keepers enough in the past, and being the newest member, it was up to me to get close. Had I known I’d be getting close to Chevelle, maybe I could’ve prepared myself. I went in seeking revenge and came out wanting to protect one thing—her.

Chevelle
Running The Pit was my life.
I needed nothing and no one except my cars and a heart-thumping race. Gear head, Pit Master, alpha bitch, take your pick on what you’d rather call me. However, make note of one thing: I take shit from no one. Not even a broody, bossy, gorgeous biker aiming for my race spot and heart.

EXCERPT (Peter’s POV)

“Are you going to kill me?”

She’s trying—and failing—to keep her voice steady. Still, I admire her attempt at composure. I approached her in public to make her feel safer, but she’s too smart to fall for that. If they’ve told her anything about my background, she must realize I can snap her neck faster than she can scream for help.

“No,” I answer, leaning closer as a louder song comes on. “I’m not going to kill you.”

“Then what do you want from me?”

She’s shaking in my hold, and something about that both intrigues and disturbs me. I don’t want her to be afraid of me, but at the same time, I like having her at my mercy. Her fear calls to the predator within me, turning my desire for her into something darker.

She’s captured prey, soft and sweet and mine to devour.

Bending my head, I bury my nose in her fragrant hair and murmur into her ear, “Meet me at the Starbucks near your house at noon tomorrow, and we’ll talk there. I’ll tell you whatever you want to know.”

I pull back, and she stares at me, her eyes huge in her pale face. I know what she’s thinking, so I lean in again, dipping my head so my mouth is next to her ear.

“If you contact the FBI, they’ll try to hide you from me. Just like they tried to hide your husband and the others on my list. They’ll uproot you, take you away from your parents and your career, and it will all be for nothing. I’ll find you, no matter where you go, Sara… no matter what they do to keep you from me.” My lips brush against the rim of her ear, and I feel her breath hitch. “Alternatively, they might want to use you as bait. If that’s the case—if they set a trap for me—I’ll know, and our next meeting won’t be over coffee.”

She shudders, and I drag in a deep breath, inhaling her delicate scent one last time before releasing her.

Stepping back, I melt into the crowd and message Anton to get the crew into positions.

I have to make sure she gets home safe and sound, unmolested by anyone but me.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

1) True is your first novel in The Story of Us series and also your first novel. How did you feel when you publish it?
I cried when I pulled up Amazon and Barns & Noble to my book listed. I was a hysterical mess after I received my first impartial 5 star review from someone who didn’t know me. It was surreal.

2) How many books would there in The Story of Us and the Drive Me Wild series?
That’s hard to say. I plan for there to only be 4 books in The Story of Us series. True (1), Forever True, (1.5) Time (2), and Untitled (2.5).

3) I have read at least two of your novels and they are amazing! Where did you get your inspiration to write your stories?
True came to me after hearing a real life story that a friend of mine had gone through. It was how I came up with Alex and Courtney’s story, though the friend’s situation didn’t end so well. Carolina Hurricane came to me after watching the music video for Take You Higher by Goodwill & Hook N Sling.

4) Any particular cast in mind for both series?
For the men, I think a mid-thirties Eddie Cibrian would be a good Alex from True with those signature deep dimples. Fox from Carolina Hurricane would be Stephen Amell. Mack from Carolina Hurricane would Steven R. McQueen, Jr- the most grown up version he can be. I’m took pick about the women so it’s harder to pick especially if I can’t be the female lead. Lol

5) Have you thought of venturing into writing Young Adult or Dark Erotica stories?
My mind is not twisted enough for Dark Erotica but I may dabble a little bit in that direction in the future. No YA, I need hot and steamy. I can’t imagine writing a story without it.

6) What are the things you will always need to write your books?
My spotify playlist, a few hours of uninterrupted quiet time, a cozy blanket over my legs, my internet connection to be working properly, and a picture of my ideal male lead for inspiration.

7) Final question! Guilty pleasures? 🙂 (It’s definitely binge reading erotic novels and watching Korean dramas for me!)
I love Game of Thrones and anything to do with vampires. Also, I binge read erotic novels, the dirtier the better. Throw in a little M/M action and I’m quite happy.

I was standing in the middle of nowhere with no real destination in mind. There was only the dire need to disappear from Charleston. With my head tilted up to the gray sky and my eyes closed, I let the light droplets of rain fall onto my face. I’d reached a crossroads in my life and was trying to find a reason to keep going. I had no idea a hurricane was coming and fate would choose that moment for our paths to cross.

“Hey! You okay?” A voice called out to me in a deep southern drawl, pulling me out of my fog. “Can I give you a ride somewhere?”

I opened my eyes and found a pair of intense blue eyes staring back at me. His name was Fox. He had an irresistibly sexy grin, and judging by his fast car, a need for speed. His timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I was looking to start a little trouble, since it was what I did best and he seemed like a good target. After sharing an incredible night together, I quickly learned that Fox was more than he appeared and full of delicious surprises. He gifted my body with unbelievable pleasures and unlocked emotions that I’d wanted to keep hidden. When I pushed him away, he left claiming a piece of my soul.

I never imagined that getting into his car that day would start a transformation within me and forever change the course of my life. Fox challenged every rule I’d ever made by tearing down the carefully constructed barriers around my heart. I never intended to fall in love with him but how could I resist a man who was so different than I’d expected and more than I ever deserved? The grayness in my life caused by loss and betrayal was waging a storm within me; Fox was the anchor I needed to stop the inner turmoil and bring me back into the light.

Jonna Fox has made it her business to know everything about Mack King and it didn’t matter that he was her brother’s rival. For the last four years, he has dominated the sport of illegal street racing and was the undisputed Carolina King. Racers respected him, emulators hated him and women couldn’t resist him. There was a dangerous edge to Mack which only fueled Jonna’s attraction, but the problem was he had no idea she even existed.

No longer able to ignore her full-blown obsession, Jonna decides to make herself known to Mack. As soon as he spots her boldly moving through the crowd wearing a short skirt, and sexy high heels he wastes no time taking the bait. Except one incredibly hot and passion filled night would never be enough—for either of them.

Jonna learns that underneath the heavy weight of his crown there is so much more to Mack and the life he leads. Racing is everything to him, but in order to stay on top he succumbs to activities that have serious consequences. When a myriad of poor choices result in a situation which threatens to strip Mack King of much more than just his title, he must decide either to give up the life that has defined him or the girl who brings light to his darkness. Which will Mack choose and will it be easy as he thinks to walk away?

Ever since Alexis Newman was young, she knew her path in life, but to get to the top you have to start from the bottom. With no man in her life, she sets out with her best friend to dance her frustrations away.

Catching the eye of the crusaders MC resident assassin, was definitely not in her life plans.

Cobra is not the type of alpha you read about, he’s not romantic, he doesn’t date, he doesn’t care. His life is all about protecting his brothers, doing whatever necessary. That all changes when he spots her across the club. She sparks something in him. Ice cold Cobra starts wondering whether he can have a happily ever after but at what cost?

Setting his sight on love was not his life plan.

With war brewing between the crusaders and their rivals the hell riders, there is danger lurking around every corner. Will Cobra bring Alexis to the dark side? Or walk away forever?

Will Alexis give up her perfect life plan for an unknown future?

Decision time. Head or heart? Life, love or death?

EXCERPT

Cobra’s hands work their way up my legs, making sensuous strokes on their travels. Goose bumps rise on my skin, sending shivers down my spine.

Before I know it, he cups between my legs, roughly, and moving his body closer, almost completely covering me. His plump pink lips crash to mine, forcing my head back into the recliner. Opening my mouth to let him in, he forcefully removed his sweats down my jelly like legs throwing them somewhere behind him. Not breaking from the mind blowing kiss, he rips my panties and tosses them toward the pants.

Finally, not that I was complaining, his lips leave mine. He kisses and nips his way down my body, leaving me writhing around in frustration. Fuck. Shit. Crap. Holy motherfucking cow. I think I’ve just died and gone to heaven. He’s sucking hard on my clit, baring his teeth every now and then. The warmth of my juices flowing freely, causing another shiver to race through me.

I moan shamelessly, gripping hard to the armrests. “More, Cobra. More, please,” I say in breath of air.

My heart feels like it’s bleeding wrong, pumping blood in the wrong direction. Cracked and shattered, it would take a lifetime to repair.

I may have known Lauren just a few months but she flew in, wreaking havoc with her bubbly persona, latching onto me like I was her Goddamn lifeline.

It was all fucking crap. It was just a bit of fun for her, she told everyone, wasn’t ready to settle down with the white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Did I ask for that shit? Hell to the fucking no. Never once did I mention I wanted all that. I just wanted her, as she was, but mine; only mine.

She broke me. Big bad biker dude and she fucking broke me.

EXCERPT

Releasing my hands, he pulls my dress over my head and runs his hands across my black bra and gives my breasts a quick squeeze. When he reaches my panties, he slides his hand inside and cups my pussy, sliding one, then a second finger inside of me. My eyes close momentarily while I absorb the exquisite feeling of him inside me. It’s been too long.

“That’s my vixen. Wet as fuck and just aching for me to make you scream. My fingers are the only ones that ever belong in your pussy, Cassidy.” Chuckling, he corrects himself, “Well, mine and yours. You know how much I love watching you finger yourself until you come.”

“Zack.” His name falls easily from my mouth as he continues to finger me. There’s no way anyone could ever make me feel as amazing as he does. He’s right—he’s the only one for me, the only one I could ever love. I know that more and more with every passing second we spend here, but I still have a secret to tell him.

 One that will change everything.

 As he slowly pulls his fingers out of me, he brings them to his mouth one by one, tasting each one slowly, savoring the taste of me on his tongue. It’s as if he’s enjoying his favorite dessert, the eroticism of the moment is heady. 

“Fuck, I’ve missed tasting you on my lips, and I’ve really missed running my tongue along your sweet, tight pussy as you come all over my face.”

Suddenly, he flips me around, holding both wrists in a single hand above my head with my face against the wall. His teeth bite down onto my shoulder but he soothes the pain with a swipe of his tongue and with the touch of his kiss against it.

“Perhaps I should punish you for running. What do you think? What should the punishment be for delayed sexual gratification?” Zack’s punishments are filled with pleasure and just the thought of it makes me want him even more. With my history, there’s no spanking, but the exquisite pleasure he brings me while he has me tied up is incredible.

Review: Unshakable by J.C. Valentine

Unshakable CoverTitle: Unshakable (Wayward Fighters #4)
Author: J.C. Valentine
Release Date: July 28th 2015
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Source: Author
Format: eARC
Rating: 4½ stars

Plans are made to be broken. 

Once upon a time, the championship was all that mattered to Donald Freyer, until cancer took it all away—his wife, his career—turning him into a bitter old man. Then Jami came along, showed him what it meant to care again. Gave him a reason to smile.

Blood isn’t always thicker. 

With Jami and Ally preparing to bring a new life into the world, Don sees an opportunity to give them something they never had growing up: stability. This new lease on life is just the thing they need to ensure their family will thrive, but before he has the chance to follow through, that nasty thing called life rears its ugly head again. Now, Don is forced to fight for something greater than a championship belt. He’s fighting for his life.

Unshakable was an amazing short read!

I have only ever read unDefeated in the Wayward Fighters series but that itself was enough to make fall in love with all the characters and this author’s novels!

Unshakable gives closure to the readers’ favourite characters such as Jami and Ally, Parker and Olivia! However, the main focus will be on Donald Freyer!

(Okay, he was a somewhat new character to me.)

I absolutely love how they treat each other as family, even though they are not blood-related to each other. That also means, that they care deeply for one another and especially when Don was fighting for his life, Jami was the one hurting most.

I WANT TO CRY AND HUG JAMI but there’s Ally so I’ll hug myself!

One of my favourite scenes was definitely the part when Jami realise his hands did not give up on him and do the one thing he fears most when it comes to his child…

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TOUCHING THAT WAS?

(Oh my god! Oh my god! *wails*)

I will most definitely go check out the first two novels in the Wayward Fighters series and keep an eye out for J.C. Valentine!

Highly recommended for fans of the Wayward Fighters series!

*Thank you to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.
