Book Cover: Depraved by AJ Merlin

Depraved by AJ Merlin

I’ll admit that this book didn’t captivate me in the first few chapters. It’s a slow build with lots of scene setting, and I just wanted to jump straight into AJ Merlin‘s brand of action. You know, the sexy, dirty and downright lascivious action. It’s definitely worth persevering with this read because in chapter 6 the story explodes in the most delectable way. Depraved is …

Book Cover: The Meetup by Mila Sin and Manuela Rouget

The Meetup by Mila Sin and Manuela Rouget

I absolutely loved The Cleanup, so it was only natural that I’d want to get my hands (or should that be eyes?) on another book about the same characters. The Meetup features Olivia, of course, and Zach, the group’s resident psycho. It’s set shortly after the gang has left school and, aside from a small bit part for Max, none of the other characters appears …

Book Cover: Penance by K. L. Taylor-Lane

Penance by K. L. Taylor-Lane

The prologue of Penance starts with sorrow and brings in a new point of view. This time it’s from Max, the guy who left Kyla-Rose on the day her mother died, triggering the events that sent her to juvie. I really wasn’t a fan of Max’s after reading the first book, Purgatory. Max may have been Kyla-Rose’s best friend but he also treated her like …

Book cover: Averie and the Grizzly Skulls by Sullyn Shaw

Averie and the Grizzly Skulls by Sullyn Shaw

For some reason, the name Averie and the Grizzly Skulls sounds cute and fluffy to me. It’s not, and this book is about as far from cute and fluffy as it gets. We’re talking closer to UndeadTed than Winnie the Pooh. Even after reading devouring the story the name still brings me to sweetness and light. I probably need help. So, a little bird walks …

Book Cover: Envy by Eva Charles

Envy by Eva Charles

I’ve been feeling pretty shitty of late. In fact, until I picked up this book it had been weeks since I’d read a book and longer still since I’d finished one. Nobody tells you how depression isn’t just feeling sad. Feeling sad is something I could deal with. It’s all the other symptoms that manifest that make it so hard to live through. I wanted …

Book Cover: Vengeance Mine by Michaella Dieter

Vengeance Mine by Michaella Dieter

I remember reading Upon Blooded Lips back when it was Michaella Dieter’s only novel and it was offered as a BookFunnel freebie. I was initially apprehensive that a freebie debut could be worth a read but I was quickly blown away by Dieter’s darkness and bloodlust. I didn’t think she could improve much when it came to Retribution, but once again I was surprised and …

Book Cover: We Keep Secrets by AJ Merlin

We Keep Secrets by AJ Merlin

When I read We Tell Lies I said that the book was an epic tease. AJ Merlin continues that theme in the first chapter of We Keep Secrets when Kayn appears in Parker’s bathroom. You think Parker’s about to get some, then Kayn backs off. He moves forward and then retreats again. The tension got so high that I was practically ready to re-write the …

Book Cover: Death Wish by K Webster

Death Wish by K Webster

Book two of the Deception Duet picks up right where book one left off. Landry and Della have finally escaped their father, but instead of running to the safety of Ty Constantine, have landed in the clutches of Scout. Naturally, Landry is pissed that Ford Mann doesn’t exist and is actually a creation of the Mannford triplets but, after a little protestation, the romance gets …
