~Calista~
“I am the monster they created. I’m the whore they’re ashamed of.”

When life tried to break me I grabbed that b*tch by the throat and squeezed.

I thought I could overcome anything.
I swore I could handle him, but after being forced to play at the Devil’s playground I ended up craving his touch.

One taste of his poison made my loyalties begin to waiver.

~Romero~
“I’m a living nightmare, I’m everything they fear.”

I’ve been called the Devil, deranged, and a savage.

I lived by a code created by rebel souls. We were sinners and thieves that made no apologies for taking whatever the f*ck we wanted. 

Saving a girl in the woods was never part of my plans, but when I saw the crazy in her eyes I knew it was a match made in hell.

Now secrets are piling up, the bodies are rotting, and time is running out to finish what I started.

Forewarning, our story is more than a little f*cked up. 

Authors Note : 18+
I am not going to put a long ‘warning’ on this book. I will say that Savages is a VERY cautionary tale that has no regard for hard limits. Reader discretion IS highly advised.

*This book contains dystopian elements*

I just happened to be scrolling through Facebook and came across a sponsored ad for Savages. The cover is the first thing that caught my eye. I read the description and decided to give it a try since it’s FREE on Kindle Unlimited! I read this book in one sitting. I’ve never read anything by Natalie Bennett before, but I am a fan now! I can’t wait for Deviants (Badlands Book 2) to come out on Feb 22nd! 

I don’t typically read books like this. I can’t think of a book I’ve read in the past that has had a dystopian element. I love trying new things, so this was exciting for me! I will warn you that this book is extremely disturbing. It’s gruesome, violent, and it will make your stomach churn at times. I’m pretty good at handling things like that, so I survived reading it, but it’s not for the faint of heart. 

img_5053

Cali is the most deranged women I’ve read about, but my inner crazy girl cheered her on throughout the book! She may be small, but she is a kick-ass woman and I wouldn’t want to be on her bad list. When Romero and Cali meet in the woods, the story becomes even more twisted. They are a force to be reckoned with. Romero is a true savage, but has he met his match with Cali?

The ending of the book was literally jaw-dropping. I could not believe it! It had me questioning everything I had thought throughout the book. It’s definitely a major cliffhanger. Thankfully, the 2nd book comes out on Feb 22nd! I am DYING to know what is going to happen!

MackenzieFrom the very first moment I laid eyes on him, I knew my heart was his for the
taking. He was the boy who filled me with butterflies and made my palms turn
clammy at the mere sight of him.There was only one problem… he was my best friend’s older brother.It’s been eight years since I’ve last seen him, and I refuse to live another
day without telling him the truth. So here I stand, taking my last chance to
get him to notice me, my last chance to see if he feels the same way.I need to know if he is just a fantasy, or if he could be my reality…

I never wanted a girlfriend; I was burned by love and vowed to never go down
that road again. But when the beautiful girl I’ve known practically my entire
life snuck her way into my arms there was something that changed in me. I
wanted to be with her, next to her. Just simply kissing her lips made my life
complete.

Now I have one mission.

To make hers complete, too.

4 Stars!

Somebody call 9-1-1 because this book is on fire! 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 

I’m sure Ni

I had so much fun reading Cocksure! When I was browsing through ARCs to read, the cover caught my eye & made my heart skip a beat! The cover alone was enough to make me want to read it. I’ve never read anything from K.I. Lynn, so I was excited to discover a new author. This is actually Olivia Kelley’s first book, so I was also excited about that! They both knocked it out of the park with Cocksure! 

img_4735

 Even though Niko is “cocksure”, I fell for him right away! There is just something about him, besides his body, that attracted me to him. I think deep down inside I knew there was more to him than what meets the eye. 

Niko Callahan is all about his “rules”…that is until he meets Everly Hayes. His match and his best friends little sister. She turns his world upside down.  Skipping forward, Everly has a chance to finally fulfill her fantasy with Niko. She takes full advantage of it, telling herself she will deal with the consequences later. 

Eventually, her lies catch up with her and she is in way over her head! This is when the story becomes more interesting! There were so many twists and turns that kept me wanting to read more. I had a hard time putting the book down!

I would definitely recommend Cocksure to my book friends! 

This is quite possibly the funniest part of the book. You will have to read Cocksure to understand this!

New Release & Review: Wicked Little Games by Dee Palmer.

img_4972

Title: Wicked Little Games
Series: Little Games Duet #1
Author: Dee Palmer

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: January 5, 2018

 

Blurb
“You promised me forever: You lied.”
Tia was five years old when she fell in love with Atticus
Kraus. She didn’t care about the castle he lived in, that he was the heir to a
vast empire, or that she was the daughter of his housekeeper. She cared about
the boy who made her smile, the boy who defied his mother to make her his
friend, and the boy who made her feel less alone.
Atticus made it crystal clear her place was right beside
him—in play, in life, and in love. He promised her forever, and she
promised to wait…
As she turns eighteen Tia is excited with the plans she’s
made with her first love and soul mate. Her studies at a top college will
ensure she finally moves away from Atticus’s judgemental family and her own
toxic mother. With Atticus at her side, she feels the first sense of true
happiness.
When suddenly accused and found guilty of stealing a Kraus
family heirloom, Tia is sentenced to six years in prison, and her world falls apart.
Abandoned and betrayed, this is just the beginning of her nightmare, as once
again she finds herself very much alone. How could this happen?
Prison changes her, but it also gives her time: time to
forge new friendships, time to learn new skills, and time to plan her revenge.
Her life was destroyed by Wicked Little Games, and she knows exactly who’s
going to pay…

These are just a few words that describe Wicked Little Games. Once I read the description of the ARC, I knew I had to get my hands on it! This is the first book I’ve read by Dee Palmer. I was very pleased! I can’t wait to read more of her books! She is now one of my favorite authors!

In the beginning of Wicked Little Games, the author takes us back in time to Atticus and Tia’s childhood… where this wicked little story begins. Atticus and Tia are from two different worlds. He is the heir to his families empire and she is the daughter of their housekeeper. Even with the world against them, they became best friends. 

Skipping forward, Tia is accused of a crime that she didn’t commit, and now she is out for revenge. The story gives us little insight of what Tia’s plan actually is, but the author gives us enough information to keep us in suspense without it becoming boring. I think some books rush through too fast. I enjoyed savoring this story.

The end of Wicked Little Games left me stunned and speechless. I have no clue what will happen in the next book. The cliffhanger left me questioning everything I thought. I’m not sure who to trust at this point.  All I know is I can’t wait to get my hands on Twisted Little Games! 

I give Wicked Little Games 5 Stars!

NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Stud in the Stacks by Pippa Grant. 1/5/18!

 

Title: Stud in the Stacks
Author: Pippa Grant

Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy

 Release Date: January 5, 2018

Blurb
When it comes to women, I know what they want. And all day long, I give
it to them. Dark, broody, and sexy? You got it. Need to laugh? I’m your guy.
Desperate for something to put you in the mood? You’ve come to the right place,
kitten.
Every morning when my library opens, there’s a line around the block,
the ladies flocking to me in need of their next book boyfriend. I’m that dude.
The one who knows his way around the romance section. And if you think that
hasn’t gotten me plenty of action over the years, you’d be wrong.
But I’ve made a few miscalculations, and now my reputation has my job
in danger. If I can’t prove to my boss that I’m more than a playboy who
recommends romance in the hopes of getting some hanky panky in the stacks, I
can kiss my job goodbye.
Stud in the Stacks is a sexy, hilarious, sometimes
embarrassing romantic comedy told in both points of view, complete with tacos,
romance novel love, and unicorn parties with no cheating or cliffhangers.

Excerpt
Even though it’s been six years since I stripped for a
roomful of women, I’m pleased to report my loincloth still fits in all the
right places. Tad more snug in front than I remember, but if I had to grow,
might as well be in the junk.
I give the elastic one last test as the producer signals
that I’m up. Spider-Man gives me a fist bump. Thor smacks my ass. They’re the
last two bachelors going up on the block after me in tonight’s superhero-themed
auction.
There are some who might say Tarzan isn’t a superhero, but
Jane would beg to differ.
And I fucking own this costume.
Plus, if no one else bids on me, my Nana’s right up front,
ready to throw down the hundred bucks I slipped her before the show.
I’m hoping for a little higher than that though. Batman just
went for a cool five grand.
Batman was a dick, which I assume my Nana didn’t know when
she started the bidding on him. A grade-A, condescending asshat who thought
just because he had a few million bucks in the bank, he could call people gay
like that’s an insult and take a metaphorical shit on my favorite books.
I fucking want to beat Batman.

I read the description of the ARC for Stud in the Stacks and knew I had to read & review it! This is my first book by Pippa Grant and it won’t be my last! I had so much fun reading this book. I laughed to the point of tears at times!

If I could imagine the perfect boyfriend, it would be Knox a.k.a. Mr. Romance. He is smart, compassionate, sexy and best of all, he is a librarian who loves romance novels. Seriously, who could ask for more!

Parker Elliot was also a fun character. She kinda reminds me of myself lol! I love her sense of humor and I enjoyed reading about her journey to becoming a more confident woman. Knox and Parker will definitely have you laughing throughout the book!

The book is very sexual & detailed, so if that’s not your thing, then you may want to read something else. If it is your thing, like me, then you are in for a treat!

Without giving too much away, I really enjoyed the ending of the book. This is the first romantic comedy I’ve read in a while and I hope to be able to read more of her books soon!

4.5 stars for this book! 4 on Goodreads and Amazon since they won’t do 1/2’s!

New Release! Millions by Pepper Winters

 

51HoGDgZr5L

I’m a little late on this post! Whoops!

Millions by Pepper Winters went LIVE on Nov 28th! This is the 5th and final book in the Dollar Series. You can purchase Millions on Amazon.com by clicking here! 

I started Millions last night. I’m only 18% in, but I am already loving it! If you haven’t read any of the Dollar books, you need to go download Pennies by clicking here.  Pennies is currently FREE on Amazon!

If you are new to this series, I would recommend reading Monsters in the Dark first, but you don’t have to. You will find out why at the end of Thousands.

I will warn you ahead of time that the Dollar Series & Monsters in the Dark are VERY Dark Romances. Not for the faint of heart!

I hope you enjoy!


Synopsis:

“Love had been given and taken and now…it had been stolen. No one steals from a thief—especially from me—and I will defend what’s mine until my dying breath. It’s not a question of what I’m willing to sacrifice but who to deserve her…”

Once upon a time, I stupidly believed if I could make Elder fall for me, everything would be perfect. 
Now, I’m missing, and he’s hunting, and everything is far from our happily ever after. 
He gave me his heart, and I gave him my promise, but true love isn’t sacred to others. 
War is coming, disaster is brewing, and I’m not going down without a fight.
Elder is mine.
I am his. 
And no one can keep us apart.
