A sweet, feel good book about mismatched identities and flip-flop lives. Identical sisters who end up swapping lives
I liked the plot and narration and the sexy times.
Wyatt is everything you could want in a man. Sexy, rich, loving and gracious.
Addison And Allison Banks are as different as night and day, despite being totally identical. Even their parents can’t spot the differences(??) That was a little too hard to swallow tbh.
But go pick up this  sweet story.
DNA May be identical but each one is different and only ONE of them could be Wyatt’s  true Angel


[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Reviews]: Boston Underworld: The Collection by A. Zavarelli

Title: Boston Underworld: The Collection

Author: A. Zavarelli

Genre: Contemporary Dark Romance

Release Date: February 28, 2019

Model: Jonny James

Cover Designer: Coverluv Designs

The complete Boston Underworld series box set includes six full-length novels- CROW, REAPER, GHOST, SAINT, THIEF, CONOR.


He’s a killer. A mobster.

The last man on earth I’d ever want to be with. He’s one of the only leads in my best friend’s disappearance, and I don’t trust him.

So I’ve got a few rules in mind when it comes to dealing with Lachlan Crow.

1.Keep a clear head and don’t get distracted. 

2.Do what’s necessary and never forget why you’re there. 

3.Never, and I mean never, fall for him. 


He’s dark and mysterious. Quiet and lethal. 

An Irish mobster. 

Pure sin wrapped up in a beautiful package. 

But there’s also something off about him. 

He hasn’t spoken to me in two years. Not a single word. 

But we share a secret, he and I. 

And if it ever comes out, I have no doubt in my mind…

He won’t have a problem killing me too. 


I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.

Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. 

Nothing scares me anymore. 

Until him.


Revenge is a dish best served in stilettos. I’ve got an eye for it, and nothing’s going to stand in my way. Not even Rory ‘The Saint’ Brodrick.

He’s a fool if he thinks he can change me. By the time I’m through with him, I’ll make his mafia look like child’s play.

Cross me, Mr. Brodrick?

You better cross your heart and hope to die. 


He’s Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.

And what he wanted was me. 


Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended. He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.

So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.

A. Zavarelli is a book junkie, cat lover, and traveler when plagued by intense cases of wanderlust. She likes all things chocolate, books that come with warnings, and putting her characters through hell. 

Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.

She is slightly obsessed with Theo James and funny animal memes. If you don’t mind these things, you should add her on facebook.


This is a wonderful look into the Irish Underworld. A. Zavarelli has done a fantastic job bringing us the stories behind all the men in this mafia series.

This is my first book by A. Zavarelli and it wont be the last!!! Holy Hotness, someone please spray me with some Irish cool me down!!! 
Lachlan, the uber bad ass mafia man…
Mack, the awesome friend, bad ass, take no crap from anyone…

Mack’s best friend Talia has gone missing… What’s a best friend to do? Go undercover as an individual at the bar she last worked at…hoping to talk to some of the other dancers to get the inside scoop. What happens though, after a super HOT audition, she starts to feel, she has desires, she realizes what it is that is missing in her life….

Can these 2 survive when everything seems to be going against them? 

Absolutely a PAGE Turner!!!! Cant wait to dive into book 2. Although this book can be read as a standalone, why would you want to stop.

Ronan aka Reaper is one tough mafia man. This book told us how a killer is created and what a story it is. At just 8 years old, Ronan was being trained to become a killer in a man’s body. This man who now is grown up and trying to survive in the only world he knows…the mafia family that is his only true family. 
This story is one full of angst, dark elements, torture, family, love and last but not least…a freaking CORGI!!! 

Loved this book and definitely look forward to reading more!!!

I remember picking up Crow by a new to me author and saying gosh that was good, then I read Reaper and said this was really good…Now I’ve read Ghost and OMG, it was Outstanding!!! Flowed Perfectly, twist and turns, revenge, raw, gritty and exceptionally written. A. Zavarelli is a author who has made it to my no questions asked, one click her book. 

This is a page turning book about Talia and Alexei. Both with extremely bad childhood stories and both who are still suffering after all these years. Talia from her being trained, sold and treated like a animal. Alexi, hiding behind his secret and a father who never has wanted him as a son… 

This book will have you hooked from the beginning to the end!

The bigger the man, the bigger the ego. Or is it the bigger the bank account, the bigger the ego? 

Scarlett is seeking revenge and will stop at nothing till it is found. She has built a wall around her heart and has no feelings towards anyone. No friend, no boyfriend, nobody…. Why is it then that The Saint, keeps messing up her plans?

Rory he just can’t get her out of his head…Satan herself has gone and left an impression with him that he can’t let go… He will stop at nothing to help this messed up girl. His ‘family’ has warned him but there is no stopping the way he feels for Satan. 

Absolutely love the way that Ashleigh Zavarelli has brought this family to us in The Boston Underworld Series. Each book is about the same ‘family’ but totally different. Showing us that each member deserves to have his story told! This one is no different, page turner from the get go. 
The finale of the Boston Underworld Series, a series that A. Zavarelli nailed! This is the story of Nikolai and Tanaka, the Russian Mafia man and the Ballerina. 

Once the Ballerina is in his possession, the tables turn. 

While Nikolai a Russian, it’s in the Vory beliefs he must marry a Russian. But this Italian Mafia princess is making Nikolai question his beliefs.

There are reasons behind Nikolai obtaining Tanaka and building a relationship with her is not in the books. This is not a typical romance story. 

As the story unfolds and we find out who is behind the ballerina’s fall, we see that those who supposedly love us the most, are the ones creating the most damage. The ones who make mothers disappear from their young children are the ones who we’ve trusted our entire life. 

Full of twists and turns, this story was a good ending to a great series!

The Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli is my favorite by this author. When I saw that Conor was getting his own book, I was super stoked!!! 

Conor has proven himself time and time again within the family. But when he finally gets asked to do a job by himself…he couldn’t believe it! Finally a chance to really prove my loyalty to the family that took me in.

Ivy is hoping this last chance job at the strip club will allow herself to start making money and finally get out of Boston. For her, the time she has been there have been anything but happy. One good thing has come out of the bad. But will she be able to make enough to save the one good thing in time?

It was great reading about the men in the previous books! I really enjoyed this story. The perfect ending to a great series.


Zavarelli spins the tale like an old folklore , who started what gang, who begets who and I’m just standing and staring wide eyed as the events unfold right in front of me. Brutally Raw story of Underground world where Italians , Russia and the Irish divide Boston like a pie , dividing territories, trading traitors, inter marrying for alliances and planting Trolls.
The book gripped me from the word go and it’s kept me engrossed throughout . I couldn’t look away , even for a second. after a long time , a true Gritty , Bloody , action packed Mafia story to sink my teeth in has come in my hands.
It’s a perfectly written story from start to end, with just the right dosage of drama, angst, steam and danger to make it a churning pot-boiler. Ash has perfected the Irish Crew with one damaged character after another who are sadistic and ruthless when punishing and tender and protective when loving.
These men know how to belong and own with the same ferocity and loyalty
“Welcome to the club Slainté. Ye best get used to it.”

–Ginger Scott, Amazon bestselling author

The love of a lifetime deserves a million chances.

Remington Wilde had heartbreak written all over him.

He was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen.

When I looked into his midnight eyes,

I saw a happy ending I’d never dared to dream of.

I was seventeen the first time he asked for my heart,

I didn’t hesitate to hand it over.

In exchange, he gave me the best summer of my life.

He was my first everything.

Falling in love felt written in the stars…

But our legend, it turns out, was all a lie.

And when our story ended, all I had was a broken heart.

Now, he wants a second chance.

But this time, I’ve got more to lose than just my heart.

When the lies that pulled us apart, threaten again, it will take more than sweet words from his sinful mouth to convince me.

He says the love of a lifetime deserves a million chances,

But am I strong enough to fall again?

The Legend is book 2 of the Rivers Wilde series of standalones. Keep in mind with standalone books within a series, you will always get a better picture if you read them in order. However, not mandatory. 

Remington “Remi” Wilde is all that and more! I mean he’s The Legend, how can you not fall in love with this character? It takes a strong person to stop the bad cycles that have been carried on for generations. Remi is the person to make the change in the Wilde family.

Kalilah “Kal” Greer is used to being let down. Being raised by a single mom in a town that is thriving on money, she is used to being from the other side of the tracks. She vows to be better and make a name for herself. 

The journey for these two is not an easy path. Spanning over many years, there is one road block after another. Even with the roadblocks, you can feel the love these two have for each other. I found myself reading the pages, turning them slowly as I secretly cheered these two on. Wishing a slow agonizing death to a certain person. 

Absolutely enjoyed reading this one. Cant wait for The Jezebel (Rivers Wilde #3) coming late 2019!!!


“The Legend is a love story. But it’s also a cautionary tale. It tells you to love deeply, believe in happily ever after, but don’t try to live anyone’s life but your own.
That will be your undoing.
All legends are lies.
Make your own truth.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself!!
It’s an inspirational story. Drives home the point again and again that you don’t have to accept the situation handed to you by life and circumstances. Do everything to change your destiny. Drive hard, chart your own course and make a difference in this world.
Love yourself enough to accept love and give back the love tenfold.


So many youthful mistakes that throw wrenches in the budding innocent love of Remington Wilde and Kalilah. They hide from their mothers in an alcove behind the curtain and therein starts the fateful connection that will drive them Wild over the years. A climb on the trellis, an electrifying kiss and hushed breathless sentiments paint their love rosy
A beautiful summer together strengthens that tie and they’re in love.
I know the magic of happy endings only exist in books and sometimes in my mind. So, when it’s over, I’ll remember this summer as the one that brought me close enough to touch mine.


But alas! The matriarchs- “Snakehead” Wilde and “Fly Queen” Morgan are vixens with sharp talons which they use to tear apart their love nest
Years pass and the couple meets off and on…..their paths colliding & bouncing away.
The mystery, intrigue, and secrecy that lies in their pasts comes and stands right in front of their faces again and again.
“We’re not getting our happy ending.
I fucked-up.
She’s moved on.
Somewhere between those two facts is our full story.”


Dylan creates tenacious and spirited heroines. They are daughters of Earth, holding on to familial values even at the cost of personal happiness, protective of their young’uns. In fact even the vixens are ultimatley driven to devise nefarious plans to protect their children. Sounds twisted but the idea behind their evil is still love for their offspring. A mother would go to any length to shield her kids,This sentiment particularly resonates with me.
There’s no stopping this train. We’ll all leave here different people than we were when we arrived.


Her writing style is poignant and stirring. The disquiet and turmoil fills the story yet she manages to create pockets of serenity for the couple for their love to bloom. This invokes in readers sympathy and protectiveness for these characters and THAT is the strength of Dylan. I was immediately attached to Will & Carlton. Their love became precious to me.
That’s Dylan’s forte. She not only gives us a simple story, she gives life lessons. And all this while there’s teary eyed smile on my face.

And what can I say about Remi- *sigh*. A very sensible, sorted alpha. He’s very clear headed, decisive and staunch loyalist. His love is unshakeable and undeniable. HE’S already THERE, just waiting for Kal to catch up and I’m like swoooooooooooooooonthump!😍😍 (pushes Kal aside and jump his bones myself )!!


I Loved  him soooooooo much. Where can you get a handsome, sexy AF alpha who not only loves you wholeheartedly, he supports and encourages your career & life choices even while it rips him to shreds? ….well in THIS book!
“Giddyup, stud. Take me home.”
Powerful writing with soft personal feels and I was occupied and engaged in this story from first page to the last. I HIGHLY recommend the story, you MUST READ and go reside in RIVERS WILDE even if it’s all imaginary [it’s NOT!]
Cannot wait for Jezebel now!!!
5 stars for Remi-Person

[Release Blitz & Book Reviews]:What He Never Knew by Kandi Steiner

WHNK - RB banner.jpg

What He Never Knew, a standalone teacher/student romance in the What He Doesn’t Know series by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is live!

WHNK Cover.png

I never learn my lesson.

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

I knew going into Reese and Sarah’s story it wouldn’t be an easy one to digest. Reese has had his fair share of bad luck in his life. From relationships to friendships to family, everyone he comes in contact with bad things happen.
While he chooses to punish himself daily with teaching at the same school that the woman he lost, he is trying to get over the heartbreak. Teaching, playing the piano part time at the restaurant and now taking on the new student, Reese should be moving on in life. 
2 years have past since that horrible day that Charlie went back to her husband….
Sarah is a breath of fresh air! She is going to graduate this semester, her dreams of playing Carnegie one day seems to be coming into play. Finals are upon her and then she can head home for the break and come back to finish her final semester. But just like that, her world has fallen apart. In the blink of an eye, she won’t be returning to college to finish. 
Packing up and moving to live with her aunt and uncle to regroup, her uncle puts her in-touch with the great Reese to tutor her and get her back to playing and dreaming of moving to New York.

cooltext315233639757503 RELEASE DAY | February 19 Talen Teaser Shay Savage RELEASE DAY | February 26 Talen Teaser Shay Savage


A Dystopian romance with a very Robin Hood like feel. I rarely venture in this genre, preferring to mortals who roam the good ‘ol  Earth with human flaws and rippling bodies. But I trust Shay’s  storytelling skills and so I dared to venture in blind.

The setting is post apocalyptic Plastictown, which is across from the Thaves community, separated by the river. Might as well be the Grand Canyon, seeing the difference of lifestyle, money, luxuries and education between the Naughts & the Thaves.


❝ I have to do what needs to be done to keep the Naughts in Plastictown safe. They count on me to provide them with what they need and to protect them.❞

Enter TALEN who appoints himself as the Leader of Lost & Found. He’s the self appointed leveller of the disparity, evening out the field by his small efforts every day. Thief with a heart of Gold.

❝ I’m just the head of lost and found. I find things and return them to their owners. Sometimes the owners are grateful and provide me with thing I’ve lost in return.❞

On one such nightly forays in the dark, he meets Aerin, his counterpart and she is his equal in everyway. Yet she knows more about him than he knows about her!!. Is she one of those spies who come to gauge the Naughts? Cause she seems educated enough…..

The sexual chemistry is very hot between TALEN and Aaron and the danger threatens them at every turn. They don’t have a moment of peace as every day brings new struggles and fresh challenges

I enjoyed reading it, but would rather stick to present day romances.

4 stars

SERIES: Masters

RELEASE DATE: February 19, 2019


I was a Courtesan.


It was in an art gallery where I first met the man who would steal me away.


Ours was not a healthy relationship.

People would claim to be a Courtesan makes me weak.

I would tell them that to be Aiden’s Courtesan, you must be strong.


That is what it means to live my life.

That is what it means to submit fully.

That is what it means to be a Courtesan.


Aiden believed I wasn’t strong enough to overpower him.

He believed I wasn’t smart enough to play his game.


It’s finally my turn to take control.

It’s my chance to prove to Aiden that all his beliefs are…

Lily enjoys stretching her writing muscles by continuing to challenge herself with each book she publishes.


In addition to writing, Lily is an avid reader, gummy bear slayer, and a gold medalist in puppy naps.







I’ve said it from the day I read Her Master’s Courtesan…The Society is a messed up, head game society! One that I love reading about. This book Her Master’s Reckoning was just what we needed. Filled with the mind games that Aiden is known for tossing out to us, the readers.

It’s been 5 years since the day Aiden acquired his pet, Rebecca. She has been the perfect courtesan for Aiden. Boy has Rebecca grown since the day she became a courtesan!

Now she has everything in place to play the game that Master Aiden is so good at playing… But will she succeed in earning the title that Master Aiden has always bragged about. That his pet is so well trained that she can be the perfect submissive AND she is also so well trained that she is ready to take on her own courtesan earning her the title of Master.

While this is a page turner of a book, there is also a fantastic love story here. Five years of being with someone, feelings develop. More than once Rebecca has told Aiden that she loves him. Yet after all these years, he has not said it once to her. 

The cards are all shuffled, and the game is ready to be played. Will the Master eat his words or will a new Master be crowned and finally be freed? This book was everything! What a ride Lily White has taken us on with all the books in this series. A perfect ending to a perfect story! 


As all the “Dark” authors write books that push boundaries, shock readers and carefully stretch limits, all this while the REAL QUEEN just smirks, perched on the top of the mountain.
THEN she releases her book and BAM …… Bookworld learns a lesson !!
THAT’S how a dark book is written
THAT’S how an evil alpha MASTER is created
THAT’S  how you a real Dom/Sub relationship is balanced.
I’m in AWE!!
Her Raven black heart is full of variegated complex stories,Twisted mindfuck is her trope and deranged characters with all the shades of black her trademark. I could never in a million years imagine my self falling in love with Aiden…..but I embarrassingly, shameful
What a fabulously complex story about a submissive who stumbles upon Real Love and a Dom who can’t even spell the word.


It takes strength to love a Master such as Aiden. Not just strength of mind. Not just strength of will. Not just strength of body. But mostly strength of heart.
The relationship or if it can even be called that, is at an impasse. Ennui, boredom has crept like vines and choked them. I think it’s ran it’s course. Brilliant masterstroke by Aiden to challenge Rebecca and she rises majestically to the occasion.


A true Queen is born. She learns and follows, notices and records, devises and enacts all the markings and makings of a Dom Master. It’s a fantastic game of Dodge & Parry that they play.
We were playing a slow game of chess, my rook sliding left, his queen moving just out of range. I’d align his king before too long.
Certain scenes just had me agape. The scenes between Aiden & Rebecca especially when he’s teaching her were unbelievable. Hell sure hath frozen over, pigs certainly learnt to fly cause Lily made such blindsiding moves, I couldn’t believe what I was reading.
Lily is ALWAYS in control over her actors. The authors who generally tout that the characters made them do certain things, or they have their own mind, or they chart their own course…. not Lily.


“I’ve stripped you of your armor and I’ve stripped you of your sword. You’re vulnerable, you’re unable to fight, what do I do with you now?”
She places them where she wants, they move and act at her discretion and permission. Her characters are true to their form till the very end. No sudden changes of heart, no u-turns of behaviour and no changing trajectories. This is a mark of a bona fide Master, cause I believe an Aiden resides inside of Lily. Unending, stubborn, unmoving.
So many layers created this mess of a situation, so many intricate knots tied the rope binding my hands while also binding hers.


Back to the story. The see-saw of situations, push & pull of emotions keep you guessing till the last moment. The end comes out of the extreme left and whacks you in the face…i was like W.T.F!!! Couldn’t believe what happened, who was playing who and how was the story gonna move from this dead end. You have to read it to see the masterful plotting that hides nuanced sentiments and bold moves all in the same chapter. Aiden surprised me, Rebecca stunned me and you will not believe who emerged as the real Master!!!
I think this is the BEST of the series!.

[Release Blitz & Book Reviews]: ROMA QUEEN by CALLIE HART











“The stunning conclusion to the Roma Royals Duet Series. The very best of Callie Hart. Hold on tight, because this is one hell of a ride!”



I’ve been many things to many people over the course of my life, but that title – King – has always been a tough pill to swallow. If I want to help Zara save her friend, then I must find a way to shoulder the pressure, though. I must unravel this complicated tangle of clues and hunt down a madman I thought I’d already killed three years ago in order to bring Sarah home in one piece.

My people are depending on me to protect them.
Zara is trusting me to keep her alive.
There isn’t a sacrifice I won’t make for her.
My Firefly.
My Queen.
I’ll raze this world to the ground to keep her safe…

After the ending of Roma King (Roma Royals Duet #1), I was constantly refreshing my kindle waiting for this one to land. In my head spinning the possibilities of the many ways this Duet could end. Alas, my life is now complete having it land on the kindle and just finished reading this highly anticipated conclusion!

Picking up right where we left off, this book was non-stop with the twist and turns! One reveal after another. Questions that we were left unanswered were tackled and what we were left with was a jaw dropping story!

Pasha and Zara might have met through their dreams, but it was their loyalty to each other that uncovered years and years of lies, deceit, back-stabbing and both of them questioning where the trust remains in the Roma Klan.

The off the chart chemistry between Pasha and Zara is definitely Sham-Wow bloomer worthy! Holy cow, bring me a ice pack to cool off!!!

Can the Roma King and the Gadje woman survive together or will the past continue to haunt them every time the phone in the phone booth rings?



Action packed & thrilling ride- Full speed ahead with captivating narration. It’s a unexampled plot treated with seduction and burning passion
I’m so in love with this story, if it was possible to have literary orgasms, I’d be comatose by now! Heat factor is breaking the thermometer and feels factor is pummeling the heart!
Pasha Rivin! A beast of a man….Lionine! Destined for greatness and chosen to be the KING!
he has my heart submitted to His Majesty’s soulful words.
“You feel like a constant. You’re a song I’ve always known. I can hum you, the sound and the tone and the melody of you filling every single fiber of my being. I can’t seem to remember the lyrics of you, but every second I spend with you, I’m seeming to figure out where they fit.” 


First off the name itself is so sexy, thrums my heart as I utter it. It has a majestic ring to it. Coupled with his sexy lush green eyes, drool worthy physique and protective streak…I’m a goner ! Come home to mama shabby *sigh*😍
I’ve been lost and directionless for a long time now. 
Now that I’ve found him, Pasha feels like coming home. 
The story provides an apt framework for Pasha. He comes barrelling into Zara Llewellyn’s life an turns it upside down. She is smitten by him, much to her dismay, cause he’s dangerous and mysterious and her priorities are Corey and Sarah and that dang mysterious pay phone booth outside her  apartment building. She just doesn’t have time or the inclination, but LOVE surprises her when life is busy making plans.


“He is a physical need that flows in my blood. He is a burning ache that thrums in my chest. He is a warning, and a plea, and a gunshot in the dark, and I have only one way of responding to him: desperately, fiercely, and with every part of my soul.” 
Callie wrote Roma King and i had to (reluctantly) evacuate Zeth Mayfair from permanent residency of my heart. What can I say, a sexier alpha just strolled right in and camped with his varda. !
I’ve always been fascinated with gypsies as my home country-India has many gypsy tribes and of course watching The Gypsy Camp Vanishes Into The Blue. There’s an aura of otherworldiness, mystique, and danger  surrounding these people so my excitement was doubled with this duet. 
It’s written incredibly well, very taut storyline with emphasis on love connection between Zara and pasha, but at no time does the focus from the impending threats and nearing deadlines wanes. All beating on a drumbeat of war that’s looming just on the horizon.
The sex scenes are scorching and the chemistry just electrifying. It’s like whenever Pasha & Zara are together they form their own gravity field with sparks and magnetism. You cannot help but be pulled into their love orbit!!


“This kiss is an armed robbery. Like a thief, Pasha takes everything from me as he grinds himself against me, pinning me to the wall of the vardo. 
My breath: gone. 
My hearing: gone. 
All cognitive abilities: gone. 
My vision: gone. 
My hearing: gone.”
The characters are so crystal clear, I had no trouble imagining them. Pasha and Zara are so adorably  in love, they don’t know it yet. Shelta, Sarah, Patrin, Cleo, Archie, Garrett, Lazlo, they’re all very easily imaginable due to fantastic detailed description and fabulous character sketching. I could feel all the emotions and almost hear their dialects. Shelta fascinated me the most and I hope she and Sarah get their own books sometime. I can’t stop at this duet, I need more of the Rivins. I need tarots, magical coin, crystal ball, Vardas, vistas and witness the beheading of Prikoza!!
5 stars for The RomBaro and his Empress 

[Release Blitz & Book Reviews]: The Son and His Hope by Pepper Winters

TS&HH - RB banner.jpgThe Son and His Hope, a sweeping standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Pepper Winters is live!


“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:

I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.

I am happy being alone.

And that is all I ever want to be.”


The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.

It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.

That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.

And nothing and no one could change his mind.


I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.

He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.

I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.

I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.

We shared similarities.

I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.

But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.

He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

5+++++ Stars!!!

Sigh…. This book…. These 3 books… Before reading The Son and His Hope, PLEASE make sure you’ve read the first 2 books of the Duet before diving into this one. 

As with any Pepper Winters book, you must allow plenty of time for reading her beautifully penned stories. Her books not only give you a story that stays with you, they take you on a journey. 

Jacob and Hope, their story gutted me. 

The farm is such a beautiful place. The love of the land and the love of the horses shows through out this story. But there is something missing… Jacob is a lost person. Throwing himself into the beauty of the farm. Keeping everyone who loves him at a safe distance. For fear of losing the next person he allows to get close.

Death is everywhere on the farm. 

Hope met Jacob at the screening of the movie. A witty, strong willed young gal with a backbone stronger than anyone I’ve ever met! From that first meeting, she never backed down. She stood tall and gave Jacob every push he needed. But what she never expected would be, Jacob never accepting her and her strong-willed personality. 

This book mentally exhausted me! I didn’t think that after reading the Duet, that this book would do the story justice. Boy was I wrong. After reading this book though, I will totally stand behind my fear of horses. They are beautiful to look at from a distance….but never will you find me standing next to one! 



Live Wild. Love Freely. Be Blessed. 
The saga of hopeless, forbidden love which started in Ren & Della duet, seems to climax in this book. Pepper has gone further in portrayal of Agony of Unrequited Affections by detailing a story between Jacob Ren Wild and Hope Jacinta Murphy in all the colours of anger, angst, grief, rejection and desolation. 


Despite being penned with a backdrop of lush, fertile Cherry Hills farm, there’s penury in the hearts of all the characters. The void left by Ren is a gaping hole in the farm, it’s swallowing all involved and getting wider and deeper by the day. Sorrow so profound and thick like a blanket, it’s almost suffocating, but for the presence of Hope, literally and figuratively.
“You’re ruining everything.”
“Maybe.” She sucked in a breath with a blood-heating hitch. 
“Or maybe I’m fixing everything.” 


Pepper is a master of evoking emotions so indelible and inerasable, the remorse just rubbed off on my heart like ink from the paper transfers on the hands of the reader. Despondency and latent frustration is the mood of the story. Pepper skillfully delves into grief of left behind relatives who are struggling with Death of a loved one. This subject matter would have gone completely dark black in the hands of any less accomplished author, but I guess Pepper balances the darkness of loneliness and lightness of being, expertly. She being an introvert feels more and that transfers in her stories a lot in the form of ponderings and monologues. She lives close to nature, so her sentiments are magnified and vivid. She colours sadness inky black, the smile and vivaciousness of Hope is evident in striped pink pajamas and sunshine yellow. Della’s acceptance is calm and placid like the endless blue skies and rolling green hills.


She was shy beneath strength. Quiet beneath conversation. And when she’d hugged me? God, she’d shown me pain had multiple levels. A hug from family could sear and sting. But a hug from her? It drew blood. 
The story is so vast, the growth of characters gets ample space and time. Hope and Jacob meet when they are kids, on the sets of Ren and his Ribbon movie and then the premiere. Ren’s instant dislike doesn’t deter the effervescent and persistent Hope. Much like her name, she’s a glimmer and living, breathing flame that scatters the mourning shadows from Jacobs life.
Jacob seems like a lost cause almost throughout the story. Carrying a chip on his shoulders the size of Everest, hes snarky, stubborn, depressed and volatile.
Wild as his surname baptised him. Savage as the loneliness in his heart. 


Grief had swollen up like a balloon and filled his heart in all the nooks and crannies so much so that there was not a shred of space for love and he is very comfortable in the grief and self-pity. 
It’s an uphill task requiring endless patience, steadfast loyalty and unshakeable belief in the power of love. All this is in the makeup of Hope. Hats off to this chit of a girl who falls for Jacob at first sight and never gives up or walks away. Literally going to the ends of the earth to salvage his broken shipwrecked soul. Such a strong girl-woman, she amazed me with her tenacity and rocklike steadfastness


“Wake up and apologise. Wake up and be brave. Wake up and accept life in all its gifts and glories, all its sadness and suffering.” 
Pepper has stretched the beauty and soulfulness of Ren & Della series to this book too. Very well written, poetical and philosophical. Very intense, at times therapeutic, at times full of sick intentions, it’s bound to effect you strongly, that’s for sure. Pepper highlights the strength of human spirit to survive and heal. Very beautifully etched characters, melodramatic dialogues, witty banter, all this makes it an unforgettable read.
5 stars for Little Lace and the wild One

Gentleman Sinner, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas, is live!

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane’s notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he’s tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.

As Theo’s demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

About Jodi:

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of romance.

She was soon signed by Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, and the third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time. With so much love and enthusiasm for her words, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore and has since let it run riot. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion—a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her real-life man, her boys, and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for alpha males.  Her work is now published in more than twenty-five languages across the world.

Momma always said…Stay out of dark alleyways…You never know what might be lurking in the dark. Never take shortcuts home. Take the well lighten path where others are around. 
Isn’t that what you were always told growing up? 
For Izzy, just getting home after a long shift at the hospital, is worth the risk. Even after her roommate/best friend kept getting after her for using the shortcut home. Izzy’s life changed that one night. 
Theo was a Godsend! Where did he appear from? How in the world did he know what was going on? Talk about being in the right place at the right time. 
It’s a journey of the nurse who stops to help the victim and the super-hot hunky tattooed man who comes to their rescue. Instantly attracted to each other. Yet both hiding dark secrets from each other. 
Totally enjoyed reading this story. As always, Jodi Ellen Malpas brings to us a most memorable over the top hot alpha! Ranking right up there with her other Alphas. To me though, the ending was rushed. We go back and forth through almost 70% of the book before we get any answers. I understand a build-up…but with the build-up that was in this book, I expected more of a reveal/explanation. Even with this being said, it was an enjoyable read for me. 



A man should protect a woman. Not hurt her. And a woman should feel safe with a man, not afraid. 
Thank you Jodi. This is a strong message which is a requirement in today’s world.
A  story of scarred Beauty and tightly leashed Beast who takes it upon himself to protect his Beauty from all the monsters and if need be…. himself. This Beast is larger than life personality with the softest of heart in his chest, beating only for his Izzy.


His life is violent, chaotic and deadly. Not an ideal fertile place for love to sprout and flourish. His temper and temperament keeping all his family, friends and employees feet away for him. 
Yet a demure and gentle little nurse breaks his impenetrable cage and frees his heart, stealing it for herself!
“How he lives, what he does, the way he handles things. No one can live by the sword and never get cut.” 
JEM creates consuming love in its finest form, novel after novel. Be it Jesse, Miller, Jake, Jack, Josh and now Theo. There’s nothing more endearing than a hulk of a man, lionine who protects his girl with ferocity and holds her gently. Jodi combines vulnerability and power in the same persona, making me want to admire them and cuddle them at the same time. 


“I’m man enough to admit that I’m nothing without you. I’m man enough to admit that I’m so frightened that I’ll hurt you again.” 
See what I mean, I want to hug him like a tree and hide him in my arms, saving him from the world, as he saved Izzy😍
I have to mention something here -everytime Theo opened his arms for Izzy to walk into his safe enclave, my heart just melted into a puddle. I swear I wanted to run faster than Izzy and just hide in his big chest Hugs and cuddles are grossly underestimated IMO!!!


Theo is almighty in strength, all encompassing in love and enormous in forgiveness. 
Izzy is petite yet large hearted and utterly devoted. Daring and brave enough to venture close to him, her gentle demeanour calming the beast and taming him. She surrenders herself completely to his overpowering love
The only scary thing in this book is the FEELINGS!. What scares Izzy and Theo more than anything is not the ghosts of their pasts or the confining boundaries but what’s brewing in their hearts and how apart their worlds are.
“I realize there’s a lot to know about you, And I know beyond doubt that I might not like some of it, but none of that wondering or worry is making me like you less. That’s what scares me.” 
Very intense and passionate in narration, the book will hold you spellbound. I’ve always wanted to be able to jump in JEM’s books because she creates heroes that love completely like every woman deserves to be loved. All her heroes carry their own cloud for us to land and float on, they have their own thing and they fight hard for their women. **sigh** all the heart eyes 😍


They make me swoon, make me dream and make me blush. So thank you Jodi for keeping the dream alive and pulse throbbing. Another immortal alpha lover joins the ranks of BBFs that make your hearts melt and panties moist😁
Hope you get to Callum & Jess book next

About L.B. Dunbar

I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.

I absolutely LOVE the Sexy Silver Foxes! L.B. Dunbar has sure mastered the writing of romance books for the over 40. I enjoy reading about characters who have real life expectations, real life problems and how these issues are resolved with experiences that come naturally to me.

Growing up, Mati, Chris and Denton were inseparable. Best Friends always having each other’s back. When graduation comes, and Denton leaves town, Mati and Chris grow closer. Eventually marrying and starting a family. 

While Denton took off and became a successful musician, he has never been back to town. 

Now 27 years later…is it time to reveal the secrets…


Are secrets meant to be kept silent forever?



A standing ovation for LB to continuously break the romantic couple preset mold and write meaningful, real love stories about people over 40. It’s a courageous achievement which in itself deserves acknowledgement and accolades. 
Fantastic job LB and keep going, we need more authentic stories like this, with real day problems in real situations. It’s so refreshing to see mature characters behaving in a sensible way.
If this story had a relationship status, it’d be – IT’S COMPLICATED!!!


“Seems complicated has come a-knocking, Mati. Time to jump at the net,” 
This entire series has been fantastic but This One is outstanding amongst it all. 
It’s a Double second chance romance, in the sense that its a second chance for BOTH Mati Harrington-Rathstone as much as it is for Denton Chance. The trio of Chris, Mati’s husband, Denton & Mati were thick as thieves since childhood. They grew up together, experienced teenage pangs together and fell in love together. 




Fate separates their ways abruptly and as it happens when hearts aren’t cleanly cut apart, but pulled away. strings get stretched, jagged edges take shape and lingering hostilities occupy empty space. Chris marries Mati and they live happily ever after and Denton…..well he becomes a rockstar and a photog model. 
Three souls separated, strive to live but emptiness comes claiming them back
God, I’m tired, I think as I consider the journey my life has taken. Rockstar. Photographer. Model. It isn’t that I don’t have a good life, but I’m tired all the same. 
The Prodigal Son returns home.


I’ll be barreling backward in time—a ride in reverse—and I’m curious how much of the past remains. 
Things have changed a lot, people have moved on, houses have become dilapidated, land has been overrun by weeds and friends are struggling to survive. But as is in small towns, gossip is still alive and flourishing.
He followed his heart from the start, but my journey has been twists and turns on a different path leading to this point. The road well-traveled. 


It’s a beautiful story, THE BEST of the entire series in my opinion. The yearning and pining adds to the thrill of pulsating passions. Denton is at the center of the maelstrom that hits Blue Ridge in Georgia. And he brings his buddies back too who we met in earlier books.


I loved the sensitivity of the sentiments, the authority of Mati’s character. She’s no shrinking violet and carries herself beautifully, putting her sons in place and the entire town for that matter. The ending just blew me away. It’s a subtle power shift and the understated turn of events strengthen the placing of women in the story. LB has made the heroine strong TILL THE VERY END and for that alone this book deserves an extra mark.
“My whole life, I’ve given up things. My volleyball scholarship,My college education when I got pregnant. Then my body to my boys. Motherhood. Working for the pub. I’m not begrudging any of those decisions or circumstances. I wouldn’t trade most of them, but it’s also my time.” 


Strong characters, precise storyline, right amount of intrigue, passion and sensuality. One thing I want to mention, after a long time I’ve read some great kissing scenes. Generally it’s sex taht the focus of romance but LB uses kisses to convey sentiments at different points of the story. I loved it.
Great enjoyable read
5 stars for Mati & the Minivan
