Review: Amore Part 1 by Bella Jewel

Amore Part 1 CoverTitle: Amore Part 1 (Amore #1)
Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: September 19th 2016
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: Adult/Contemporary Romance
Source: Author
Format: eARC
Rating: 5 stars

“It is not love that defines us, Julietta. It is love that destroys us.”

I’m just a normal girl.
Or so you would think.
I’ve never thought of myself as anything different.
Until I met him.

He doesn’t think I’m normal.
He thinks I’m special.
Special enough to be in his life.
Special enough to enter his world.
Special enough for his bed.

Rafael Lencioni. Dangerous. Beautiful. Terrifying.
My story is the one that’s never told.
I’m not the daughter.
I’m not the wife.
I’m not the forbidden lover.
I’m not a sister or a mother.
I’m not who you think I am.

So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.
Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.

I have to change who I am.
I have to shut down my heart.
I have to accept my place.
My body belongs to him.
My heart isn’t permitted to.
Those are his rules.
But rules were made to be broken…right?

Amore has got to be one of the best mafia romance novel I have ever read!

First, let’s talk about the characters! Oh my god, I am literally just fangirling over them right now!

Meet Julietta. She is not your average badass and strong headed female protagonist in a mafia romance…actually, make that any other novel for that matter! She is one of the sassiest character I have ever read about, and I truly wish I could actually sit down and drink some tea with her!

To me, she is a very interesting character. Someone who literally does not care about what others think of her, do what she wants without caring too much about the consequences. Some might say she is impulsive, but this is what intrigues me! I mean, can you imagine making funny faces at a club owned by the mafia just for the sake of fun?!

Told you guys, Julietta is one amazing woman!

Rafael Lencioni. Hot. Sexy. Dangerous. Leader of the mafia.

You haven’t meet a dominant and powerful, hot-as-hell alpha who radiates power just from his presence till Rafael Lencioni. He can be the ultimate boss of all mafia if he wants to!

Rafael is an interesting man. Besides his obvious sexual prowess, his emotions are something else entirely. A man who marries to keep his position, like an arranged marriage, but he doesn’t treat his wife like an invisible person even if he had no romantic feelings towards her. In fact, he cherished her.

Weird right? One would expect a man such as Rafael to be completely cold towards his arranged wife, and be completely smitten with the true love of his like.

Which is true, he is completely intrigued and smitten with Julietta.

Then again, Amore is a very different mafia romance novel!

There is almost nothing that I don’t like about Amore. I love this novel so much and I do highly recommend lovers of mafia romance, and any other romance novel readers to read this!

Coincidentally, London is where Liam Frost, the charming Welshman lives, her no strings attached irresistible best friend with benefits.

Title: Protector
Author: Michelle Horst
Genre: Suspense Romance
Release Date: November 2nd 2016

I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person. I wanted to save the world, or at least leave my stamp behind. In my own naïve way I thought I could bribe karma but life has a way of teaching us lessons.

I never knew how selfish I was until my life was ripped away from me.

Taken.

I’m forced to watch as they torture and kill my family … and I know I’m next.

I hear their screams.

I watch them die.

It’s the worst kind of torture

Then he comes. He made a promise to my brother. It’s the only thing keeping him bound to me.

A promise to protect me.

I should set him free of the promise … but I don’t. He’s my shield against karma. He’s my protector.

Riley~

I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person. I wanted to save the world, or at least leave my stamp behind.

I’ve spent the last three years leaving my footprints wherever I felt my help was needed.

In my own naïve way I thought I could bribe karma. You know … if I do good then good will come my way. It’s worked so far, so why would I have any reason to doubt it.

At the age of twenty six I’m happy, that contented kind of happiness not many people ever find in their lives.

I have parents who love me. I have two brothers who I idolize, especially my oldest brother, Josh. No one can hold a candle to him.

I’m returning from Australia, after taking part in the annual Gouldian finch count. It was an amazing experience, counting all those colorful birds. Before that I traveled Africa for three years, lending a helping hand wherever I could. It made me feel good.

That’s the problem though, isn’t it?

I did it because it made me feel good. I didn’t do any of it for those people I was helping. I didn’t do it for the animals. No, I did it all for me – so karma would have to pay me back in kind.

That’s how it works. Right?

I always keep my slate clean. I’m always polite and hardworking. I always smile. I’m the funny one, the shoulder everyone can lean on.

That has to count for something, right?

Josh started this thing where he calls me his shooting star. Riley-Star. It caught on in the family. They always joke around and pretend to make wishes on me. I shine so bright. I’m the heart of the family … their little girl.

But every star has to burn out some time.

Life has a way of teaching us lessons. Karma, now there’s a peculiar thing. I never knew how selfish I was until my life was ripped away from me.

Me. Me. Me.

It was all about me.

Review: Bella Vol. 6 by Kimberly Blalock

Bella Vol. 6Title: Bella Vol. 6 (Sagatori Family Saga #6)
Author: Kimberly Blalock
Release Date: July 25th 2016
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: Adult/Contemporary/Mafia Romance
Source: Author
Format: eARC
Pages: 78
Rating: 4 stars

One by one the pieces to the puzzle fall into place, this epic tale of lies and deceit become clear and yet so blurred. The lines I cross are without the protection I know I’ll need or the strength to survive the destruction my past will leave me in the center of.

There is one thing that I am positively sure after reading six volumes of the Bella serial.

That is…if the pace of this serial gets any faster, and filled with more plot twists that it already has (oh and let’s not forget the cliffhangers!), I am going to need some serious braces to support my neck and some mental support please!

If you think it’s impossible for a serial, and one that is being broken down into twelve parts at that, to have plot twist in each volume, then you are in for the biggest surprise of your reader’s life!

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF KIMBERLY BLALOCK!

Where the pace of her stories will leave you feeling as if you have just run a marathon, and one that you are not able to stop until you reach the end!

Where her stories and plot twists will bring joy and pain to you, and leave you wanting more!

I guess this means life as an avid fan of Miss Kimberly’s stories isn’t easy!

In the sixth volume of Bella, Bella and Jax have a strained relationship but it still made them love each other even more. What I think they need, is marriage counselling. Sounds funny, yes? Unfortunately, it’s either that or Jax really have to work on their communicating skills!

Yeah, yeah, I know. Jax was trying to protect her, but what I do think is that, if Bella doesn’t know the truth, not only would she be unable to protect herself, the relationship would never move forward.

Of course, this story doesn’t just focus on that, but vol. 6 is a volume where the truth about Isabella Sagatori will be revealed and all the questions one has in the previous will have an answer.

By now, most of you must have realise the author loves to end each of her volume with another plot twist so heads up, this volume ends the same way!

Although in the end, I do have even more questions and I am currently trying my best to wait p-a-t-i-e-n-t-l-y for the next volume!

I am definitely grabbing the next part in this serial when it’s released!

Recommended for all mafia romance readers!

Review: Bella Vol. 5 by Kimberly Blalock

Bella Vol. 5 CoverTitle: Bella Vol. 5 (Sagatori Family Saga #5)
Author: Kimberly Blalock
Release Date: June 17th 2016
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: Adult/Contemporary/Mafia Romance
Source: Author
Format: eARC
Pages: 80
Rating: 5 stars

I know Bella in every way you could possibly imagine, but she doesn’t know me, not as well as I want her to. I have a secret I couldn’t bare her finding out. This secret is hiding in the darkness of my past and it’s fueling a war with the Bratva. 

This is it. I am officially naming Miss Kimberly Blalock as the Queen of Plot Twists and Cliffhangers!

I am a huge fan of both Miss Kimberly’s stories and characters. Something about this author and her love for torturing both her characters and readers makes her story stands out! Sounds sadistic, I know, but it is the truth!

In this volume, what Bella and Jax needs, is to sit their butts down and communicate. Seriously, the way they flip their faces on each other, it’s faster than a person flipping the pages of a book!

Vol. 5 may very well be my favourite after the third volume because it shows more of Bella and Jax, especially Jax, and their feelings!

Bella Sagatori and Jax Moretti are one of the few characters in a novel that has such an emotional depth. Usually, a novel will most slightly have one that has a dark past, or feels strongly about certain things, but this feeling is always amplified in Kimberly’s stories.

One thing’s for sure, she loves leaving her readers wanting for more with each Bella serial!

Perhaps, some might lose interest in a particular series after each part takes too long, or maybe because there are too many parts to it, to be released. That is not the case for the Sagatori Family Saga series!

No, it leaves you wanting and begging for more!

What I can tell you is this, Bella vol. 5 ends with a cliffhanger but this time, it’s bomb-worthy cliffy!

What I will not tell you, IS THE CONTENT OF THE BOMB!

Dear readers, this may be the fifth volume in the serial, but the story between Bella, Jax, the Sagatoris and the Famiglia is just starting!

Mary Jane, a struggling comedienne, stumbled into the wrong club at the wrong time. She didn’t notice the gangster gripping the gun and the two scary men on his sides. She just jumped on the stage, tested the microphone, and went into her routine.

And that’s where things got interesting.

Noah was the gangster that gripped the gun. The Beast of Din City. The Boss of the Streets. The one who ruled them all from the North to the South. Not liking to murder women, he’d now been thrown into an uncomfortable situation. She’d accidentally become a witness to something she shouldn’t have seen.

She’d now become a problem.

Yet, their gazes met and hearts faltered, thump, thumping in their chest like a tune beat out from bullets slicing through the air and bodies crashing to the ground.

Their gazes met and things would never be the same for him or her, nor the Streets. Their gazes met and he decided not to kill her, instead he took her on a journey where sex meets the rhythm of the streets, high to low, smooth to rough, growing inside of them both until they’re not sure, if any of them will survive—him, her, or those bloody streets.

***Warning: This book contains adult language, graphic violence, and explicit sex that may be disturbing for some readers. This book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.***

Noah’s POV

If I could, I would’ve written it all down. The taste of her sex. The softness of her flesh. The richness of her moans. The squeaking of the bed.

She had that good pussy. The sort a man wanted to lock down and trap to him. Never let out, unless the chick was strapped to him. That good pussy. I’d heard legends of women with gold between their thighs, but thought it was bullshit. Now, I was a believer. She had that good pussy. Gushing and dripping. Her sex wet for me. It was a perfect opening to pleasure. Folds like satin, a liquid symphony. Good pussy. Warm flesh hugging my cock. Drawing me inside of her. Luring. Singing to never stop.

“Oh, Noah,” Mary Jane moaned. “It feels so good.” 

That’s a goddamn understatement.

 

About the author:

Kenya Wright wrote her first novel during her third year at UM Law school. She dropped out a month after the release and never looked back.Words are power, and Kenya wants to be the greatest wizard that ever lived.

It’s an audacity to inspire and teach the healing of love through arousal.

It’s this crazy idea that love can not only help a reader escape, but the story can also teach the person about being human, while making them laugh, cry, and hot for more sex.
