Tough and Tamed by Em Petrova Blitz and #Giveaway


Tough and Tamed
Em Petrova
(Moon Ranch #1)
Publication date: February 24th 2020
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
Revenge sex and a healthy dose of a bad boy making all the wrong decisions equals one hell of a wild ride. The horse is optional.
Zayden Moon and his brothers are back home for the old man’s funeral, but too bad none of them give a damn what happens to the failing ranch they’ve inherited or all the bad memories that come with it. Now Zayden has more than his murky past and the ranch to contend with. As usual, trouble comes searching for him when he’s asked to rescue a woman lost on the mountain, stranded on Valentines’ Day of all things, and he’s the only man who knows where to look. And whoooeee, there’s a lot to look at when it comes to this curvaceous beauty.
Esme thought she was going to the mountain getaway to receive a diamond ring, and instead she’s abandoned by her boyfriend and left to make her own way down the jagged terrain. When a sexy cowboy rides in on a white steed, she thinks she’s seeing things, but soon his warm, rough hands show her otherwise. A hot and heavy dose of revenge sex seems to be in order too, right?
If Zayden had a heart, he’d be falling for the woman with spunk to match her wild curls, but he knows better than to attempt a relationship. And Lordy, Esme sure gravitates to the worst men… except there’s something more to Zayden than he allows anyone to see. If she ever figures out what, she might give Zayden a chance, because the man’s kisses sure can knot a woman up.
EXCERPT:
“You go out with these jackasses and then call me when it all goes wrong. Are you seeing a pattern?”
She didn’t realize she had been doing that, but she couldn’t deny she’d used Zayden.
“You pick all the wrong guys,” he stated.
She shivered as he ran the pad of his thumb across her lips.
His voice sounded rough. “Let me show you how it’s done.” His low words smeared across her soul, and she felt herself leaning toward him.
He lowered his head in increments, his gaze latched to her lips. She wet them, and he growled.
“You don’t want to get mixed up with me,” he said.
“It’s just for sex.”
When his crooked grin hit his handsome face, she laughed, low.
“It’s not the worst decision I’ve made tonight to take you home with me.” She tipped her face up to his, almost begging for his hard lips on hers.
“Am I sensing some revenge sex here? If that’s the case, I’m your guy. I can show these assholes what they’ve lost.” Zayden moved in, a breath away from nuzzling her just like she wanted.
Her heart slammed against her chest, and she could barely drag in a full breath, especially with him filling the car with his masculine scent.
She nodded, rubbing her nose against his. “Maybe.”
“Then let’s do it right, sweetheart.” Suddenly, he released her, and she slumped in her seat, panting with want. “Drive.”

Lock You Down by Jessica Gadziala (Rivers Brothers, #2)

Lock You Down
by Jessica Gadziala

My rating: 5 stars

Series: River Brothers - Book 2
Publication Date: February 23, 2020
Publisher: Jessica Gadziala
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Suspense
Print Length: 228 pages
Available from: Amazon

Nixon -

I used to think stalkers came in one of two categories-
Creepy guys who won’t take no for an answer, and
Women scorned.
That was until I met Reagan.
A woman with secrets.
Secrets I planned to get out of her one way or another.
Among other things.



Reagan -
No sane person decides to be a stalker.
And no smart woman gets the hots for the very man who was supposed to thwart her mission.
I guess that made me both less-than-sane and stupid.
Somehow, I was okay with that.
I knew why it was important to do what I did.
And, maybe, in Nixon, I would find someone who would understand, who would help me.
Even if he grumbled the entire time.

Lock You Down by Jessica Gadziala (Rivers Brothers, #2)

Lock You DownI liked it! A little less action and a lot more sweet, budding romance! No, no, no, Jessica Gadziala isn’t going all fluffy on us, she is, once again showing what a gifted author she is. LOCK YOU DOWN has its share of turmoil, a lot of humorous moments and two completely fabulous characters who each own a boatload of “past” that holds them back, especially Reagan. That gives Nixon the opportunity to finally own his inner knight-in-tarnished-armor and it is fabulous. Who doesn’t love a guy who can be supportive and strong and vulnerable all at once?

Another incredible tale filled with great dialogue, high energy tension, and, oh yes, love, lust and more love. The support of old favorite characters is like extra frosting on the cake. Definitely heading to my re-read pile!

I received a complimentary ARC edition from Jessica Gadziala! This is my honest and voluntary review.

The Return by Rachel Harrison

The Return
by Rachel Harrison

My rating: 4 stars

Publisher: Berkley (March 24, 2020)
Publication Date: March 24, 2020
Genre: Dark Fiction
Print Length: 304 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

An edgy and haunting debut novel about a group of friends who reunite after one of them has returned from a mysterious two-year disappearance.

Julie is missing, and the missing don't often return. But Elise knows Julie better than anyone, and she feels in her bones that her best friend is out there, and that one day she'll come back. She's right. Two years to the day that Julie went missing, she reappears with no memory of where she's been or what happened to her.
The Return by Rachel Harrison

The ReturnThe four of them had been lifelong best friends, so when Julie mysteriously disappeared for two years, Mae and Molly painfully let go, believing she was dead. Only Elise feels deep in her very soul that Julie is out there, somewhere, perhaps unable to get back to them, but she was alive. And then her belief proved right, Julie returned, the past two years an empty chalkboard. Julie had no idea where she had been or what happened.

Believing a best friends getaway was in order, the four women took off to get reacquainted and hopefully help Julie remember what happened, but something wasn’t right… and their getaway became a tense and often painful time with more questions raised than answered.

THE RETURN by Rachel Harrison is a haunting tale of loss, relationships, and the inn they had chosen wasn’t helping. Was it haunted? Were the unusual events because of Julie? The truth may be stranger than fiction and it waits in the shadows, perhaps of the mind, the heart and even the inn.

Dark, stark and eerily written, prepare yourself to have your own questions, but do not expect to be far from the edge of your seat one moment, only to find yourself waiting for something to actually happen the next! A true rollercoaster of words, relationship confusions and, wondering, is Julie really back? The answers are out there…a good read, twisted, dark and unsettling.

If I could wish for one thing, it would be to have never met my ex. He took my money, cheated on me, and saddled me with an impossible mortgage.

Now, just as I’m fighting to put my life back together, I find an unusual bottle with a note inside: “You get one wish. Make it count.” Har har. Someone’s idea of a joke?

But nothing could prepare me for what comes next or for the screamin’ hot man with piercing blue eyes who shows up at my door, making demands.

I should slam the door in his sex-god face, because this guy has trouble written all over him. But I can’t. Suddenly I do have a wish…
Wish by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

WishIf you had one wish, what would it be for? Might just depend on the day and the circumstances, right? Would it be a selfish wish or something magical? Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s standalone romance, WISH is pure Mimi, sassy, fun, endearing, sexy and trust me, there will be times when you aren’t quite sure about what is going to happen next or who these characters truly are! One thing for certain, you will fall in love with this tale of love, loss, discovery, and yes, a bit of special magic!

Ginnie is an artist, burned by love and betrayal, but re-building her life slowly. Then HE walked into her life, promising to grant her one wish, anything her heart desired. Was he a little crazy, was he for real? One thing for sure, he jumbled her heart and her thoughts…was Fate playing a cruel joke on her or was it putting her right where she needed to be?

Absolutely loved this tale as Mimi Jean Pamfiloff adds her signature voice, blending sweet, bitter and slightly quirky aspects to perfection! My only complaint, it ended before I was ready to let go, no matter how hard I hit the next button on my Kindle!

Reaper Academy by Allison West Blitz and #Givewaway


Reaper Academy
Allison West
Publication date: February 20th 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
The professor should be off-limits. But he’s hot. And I’m a bad girl. Lucky for me, he doesn’t play by the rules. Neither do I.
I used to be a princess; that was before I was murdered.
The reaper who took my soul. He’s my professor. And, well, the experience of taking a soul is quite… pleasurable. He wants me. I crave him. It’s against the rules, but do either of us care?
Publisher’s Note: This paranormal thriller contains graphic scenes.
EXCERPT:
“I’m not going anywhere.” Was he really going to spank her? Spankings were for children. Leila was an adult. Hell, she was dead and was a grim reaper. Is this how they kept each other in line and from breaking the rules?
She hadn’t budged an inch.
“If I have to put you over my knee, it will double your allotment of spankings.”
Her cheeks burned with embarrassment and the room sweltered. Was it hot in here or was it just her? “Please, Wynter. I promise I won’t do it again.”
“You’re right, you won’t. I’m going to teach you right from wrong, my little Leila. Good girls listen and do as they’re told. Bad girls face a wrath of punishments. Spankings, my little Leila, are just the beginning.”
“Wynter, what if Emblyn or Violetta come out from their room?” She did not wish to see her grim reaper friends pay witness to her punishment. Leila didn’t dare ask whether Wynter or Jasper dished out such discipline to the other girls on occasion.
He merely shrugged and reached for Leila as she had yet to come closer. His strong grip pulled her down over and across his knee, lifting her dress to reveal her panties underneath.
“These are of no use right now,” he said, using one hand to slide the undergarments down her thighs and to her feet.
She felt humiliated being bent over his lap. He could see her bottom and possibly even her cunny as it began to throb with a ferocious intensity. How was being in this position, exposed and vulnerable, arousing her? Perhaps it had to do more with it being Wynter, taking control, disciplining her.
Without warning, his hand came down, spanking her plush bottom, forcing her to jump and her cheeks to clench with a hiss. The pain stung right through to her lips down below, forcing a further ache and wetness to seep out uncontrollably. With her face bent down to the ground, she was grateful she didn’t have to look at him.

The Resistance by T.H. Hernandez Blitz and #Giveaway


The Resistance
T.H. Hernandez
(The Union Series, #5)
Publication date: February 25th 2020
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult
After the Union is invaded by the Uprising, life for Evan and her friends becomes even more dire. If they have any hopes of saving the world they know, they’re going to need help. And it looks like there may be someone already out there trying to accomplish the same thing.
Now living in an encampment in the Ruins, life is hard for most Unis in the Resistance. For Cyrus and the other Ruins survivors, it’s just more of the same.
While they train for their ultimate mission, tragedy strikes, upending everything once again. Complicating their plans, someone in their midst is working against them. Evan, Cyrus, and the rest of the Resistance need to locate reinforcements to help them bring down the Uprising while rooting out the traitor. With trust at an all-time low, no one is above suspicion as danger walks among them.
EXCERPT:
Draya stands in the middle of the holding tent that’s served as her residence the past couple of weeks. Her long wavy hair is piled high on her head in messy disarray as she directs her unblinking stare in my direction. Not for the first time this morning, I regret agreeing to participate. But since Draya and I are the only people in camp who were present during my interrogations, I let the others talk me into it. After all, I’m the one she tortured, the one who admitted to blowing up their camps—which we did do—along with a number of things we didn’t do. And if we didn’t do them, she either she made it up to throw me, or someone else out there is working against the Uprising, meaning we may have allies.
“So…what’s going on?” Draya asks, tilting her head to the side as if we’re inviting her to a picnic.
Mateo’s dark curly hair brushes the ceiling of the squat tent that’s barely tall enough for him to stand upright. A breeze from behind flutters the hem of my shirt, alerting me that the last member of our leadership council has arrived.
“Bring me up to speed,” Jack says.
“We waited for you,” Rainey says, her normally raspy voice even more so at this early hour.
Jack trains his attention on Draya for a few beats, assessing the situation as only a cop can.
Draya crosses her arms as her mouth twists into an arrogant grin. “Anyone care to enlighten me to the purpose of this party?”
“We need information,” I say. “When I was in your…custody, you asked me about attacks on the Uprising.”
Her bright blue eyes hold a defiance, sharp enough to slice through bone.
“I thought you said she was willing to cooperate,” I say to Cyrus, never taking my attention from the enemy before me.
Her head tilts in the other direction. “You haven’t asked me a question yet.”
Rainey moves her five-foot-nothing self forward until she’s in Draya’s personal space. Even without the scar cutting across her cheek to her jaw, she exudes power and authority.
Draya blinks and takes a step back then rolls her eyes. “I doubt I can tell you anything you don’t already know.”
“Let’s start with details of the attacks on the Uprising,” I say.
Her brows nosedive. “You’d have more information on that than me.”
“Just…” I let out a frustrated sigh. “Just tell us what happened from your perspective.”
She snorts and her gaze sweeps the rest of the leadership. “You don’t know, do you? Well, now, isn’t this interesting?”
“Draya,” Cyrus’s warns.
“I said I’d help, and I will, but I want something in exchange.”
Mateo crosses his arms with a relaxed posture that says he’s bored. The way he can project anything he wants is just one of the things that makes him such an important part of our leadership team. After spending years as a mercenary, we were able to recruit him to our cause. “You’re in no position to negotiate.”
Draya taps her finger against her chin. “Oh, I think I am. I have something you want, and I want out of this tent. I’ve been stuck in here for two weeks.”
My body trembles as if the ground beneath my feet is quaking. “Oh really?” The words fly from my mouth coated in the venom of my rage. “Your conditions are rough? How are you managing to get by without all the torture? That must really suck.” Cyrus puts a hand on my shoulder, but I shake him off. “And sleeping on a cot instead of a concrete floor in your own vomit and shit? Wow, that must be nearly intolerable.”
Some of the storm clouds brewing in Draya’s eyes dissipate before her shoulders slump, almost imperceptibly. “Fine. It was little things at first, like supply trucks missing inventory. We thought the drivers were making money on the side. But after investigating…we determined it wasn’t them.”
Investigating my ass. They probably tortured them to the brink of death only to find out they were innocent. Well, innocent of the crimes they were accused of anyway.
“Then a high-ranking Uprising leader disappeared.” Her gaze drifts to Rainey then Cyrus. “But after we’d lost a couple of commanders, it wasn’t completely unexpected. There was talk about the disappearances being connected.” Pressing her lips together, she glances at me. “That’s why I had to push you so hard about Cy’s location. A few days after the camp attacks, the leader’s body was found, throat slit, a hundred miles from where he was last seen.”
I glance up at Cyrus wondering if he knows about this. He gives me a quick shake of his head. “Go on,” he says to Draya.
“We were only days away from striking the Union when the camps were attacked. It was a huge setback, but they’d already placed so many people in the Union that they quickly came up with a backup plan.” She flicks something off her pant leg. “And you know the rest.”
“That’s a lot of superficial information,” Mateo says. “We need dates, locations, a list of everything that was taken from the supply trucks, where the leader was last seen, where he was found…”
Draya’s chin tilts up as a smirk tugs at the corners of her mouth. “I take it you don’t need details on the camp attacks.”
Mateo’s chest expands with each terse breath.
“Didn’t think so,” she mumbles but spends the next couple of hours answering questions. Unfortunately, she doesn’t provide much in the way of concrete details, something we desperately need. If we have any hope of taking down the Uprising, we’re going to need help.

Aisling Elizabeth Tanner is now the leader of the Faerie rebellion. Facing the end of the world, she will have to find the strength to lead the Fae to victory against the threat they face, or risk losing everything, including Finn, whom she’s come to love more than life.

Warrior Finn O’Connell wants nothing more than to fight by Elizabeth’s side. But an ancient Celtic goddess threatens to take charge of his soul, and he will have to wage a war within himself to save the rebellion from disintegrating into chaos.

Betrayal leads them into the Fae Underworld, where Finn discovers his greatest sacrifice might be letting Elizabeth go—forever.


Echoes from the Veil by Colleen Halverson
(Aisling Chronicles, #3)

Echoes from the VeilShe is facing the end of the world and to save it from destruction, Aisling Elizabeth Tanner, new leader of the Faerie Rebellion is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice and losing the love of her life, Finn.

Betrayal runs deep, the threats are real and the past will come back to haunt Finn, but to keep Elizabeth safe, he must choose, is it better to have loved and lost to save his world?

ECHOES FROM THE VEIL by Colleen Halverson, although not the first in the series, gives enough brief background interspersed throughout to give the essence of how things have come to the point they are at now. A wonderful romance, threats from all around and the desire to do what is best for their people, these two lovers are forced into battles of the mind, heart and body.

Well written, with wonderful descriptions and characters that are flawed, but realistic, I enjoyed every page of this escape into another world. I would suggest that reading the previous books in the series will raise the enjoyment level another notch!

I was invited to receive an ARC edition from Entangled: Amara! This is my honest and voluntary review.
