Book Review | Accidentally Compromising the Duke by Stacy Reid (@st_reid)

28644556

England, 1817.

Miss Adeline Hays is out of options. Determined to escape marriage to a repugnant earl, Adeline plans to deliberately allow herself to be caught in a compromising position at a house party with the much kinder man she’d hoped to marry. Instead, Adeline accidentally enters the wrong chamber and tumbles into the bed of the mad duke.

Edmond Rochester, the duke of Wolverton, is seeking a wife to care for his two daughters. A young lady of sensibilities, accomplishment, and most importantly, one who he is not attracted to—a complete opposite of the bewitching beauty who traps him into marriage. But despite the lust he feels for his new duchess, Edmond is resolved to never allow them intimacy, refusing to ever again suffer the tormenting loss of a loved one.

Book Review | Sugar Daddy by Sawyer Bennett (@bennettbooks)


25573737



Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Times bestselling author of the Cold Fury series—Alex, Garrett, Zack, and Ryker—returns with the first novel in a hot new trilogy.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore,” raves Violet Duke. Now the bestselling author of the Cold Fury series proves that vengeance is sweet—but seduction is to die for.

Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.

The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.

Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!

Am I looking at a book with a man who is thirty years her senior? I was hoping not. But this is Sawyer Bennett, and she doesn’t write anything mediocre. The cover looks sweet, and the title interesting.

Sela Halstead is about to get her revenge. She was sixteen years old when the nightmare happened, and it continues to haunt her even now. She didn’t know the identity of her perpetrator except for the tattoo that is forever etched in her memory. The tattoo belonged to Jonathon Townsend, one of the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with younger women. It was her obsession with revenged that had brought her straight into the vision of tech mastermind of The Sugar Bowl, Beckett North.

Beckett is the brain beneath the successful website. He gets what he wants in business and in bed – but he never mixes the two unlike his partner who has been causing a lot of trouble lately. And then here comes Sela that seemed to spark every fantasy he had. Despite how awesome the sex is, it was more than that for the both of them.  But what if he discovers about her plans for revenge? Would it change everything?


It’s an amazing start to a new series. This was something different and like the rest of her books will hold your interest in no time. Sawyer Bennett knows how to stop your world and keep you glued to her book. Drooling, swooning and mesmerized with each page, and each chapter as the plot uncovers. This book has twists and turns that I never have imagined: some will surprise you, will anger you, or will break you.



Sugar Daddy ends with a powerful and heart-stopping cliffhanger, so you better hold on to your seats, and hope you are patient enough to wait for the next installment in the series.

Book Review | The Debt by Tyler King (@TylerAKing)


27416069





Hadley saved my life . . . and I ruined hers

Hadley's my best friend. We share a house, our friends, a life. She knows all my secrets . . . except one. My desperate need for her is inked on my body, it's the best I can do. But Hadley needs to hear the words . . .

Growing up as foster kids, Hadley made me feel whole-sane. And what did I do? I destroyed our chance to be together. I ran out on Hadley when I should have stayed, and something broke between us. Now I'll do anything to fix it.

I'll never leave her again. I won't ever let her feel afraid again. But the more I try to protect her from my pain, the more I just make things worse. I'm terrified that if I tell her everything, she'll never forgive me. I'm even more terrified that it may be too late to make her mine. I have to try to give her what she needs . . . it's a debt I'm determined to repay.

"I can't promise you a happy ending, but I can offer you a happy beginning."

Get your hearts ready – because you are in for an emotional read!

Hadley and Josh had been best friends since they were young and living in the hellish confines of their foster homes. They made it, but not unscathed. They have scars. Scars have marked their souls and kept on haunting them. Their relationship went on, even if they got adopted by different people, they needed each other.

Then one night, everything changed. What should be the start of their happy ending, had caused their relationship to spiral down. Josh ran out, when Hadley needed him most – and it caused a strain in their relationship. Now, they still live in the same house, they still have the same friends, but everything was never the same again.

Will they ever have their happy ending?

I am truly lost for words the moment I finished the book. The characters were totally complex and have been through hell and back. I admire their courage in facing their demons and finally trying to get through life despite everything that they experienced. Yes, they made bad choices, and suffer the consequences of their actions but they are also trying to make up for it.

The people that surround them were truly amazing as well. They are one heck of a support system. One doesn’t need to be related to be called family.

I wanted to add more, but I will be spilling out spoilers if I don’t stop typing!!!


The Debt was a spectacular read. A totally unexpected emotional roller-coaster ride that had my heart ached so badly, I thought I was never going to recover.  Just as when I thought they were in for a happy ending, another thing drops, and I’d once again cross my fingers, hoping for the best. Then finally, it was with great relief that it ended beautifully. Such a heartwarming ending that will sooth the aching of your heart and soul. You should give this one a try!

Book Review | Spinning Out by Lexi Ryan (@writerlexiryan)



29547264

Once, the only thing that mattered to me was football—training, playing, and earning my place on the best team at every level. I had it all, and I threw it away with a semester of drugs, alcohol, and pissing off anyone who tried to stop me. Now I’m suspended from the team, on house arrest, and forced to spend a semester at home to get my shit together. The cherry on my fuckup sundae? Sleeping in the room next to mine is my best friend’s girl, Mia Mendez—the only woman I’ve ever loved and a reminder of everything I regret.

I’m not sure if having Mia so close will be heaven or hell. She’s off-limits—and not just because she’s working for my dad. Her heart belongs to someone else. But since the accident that killed her brother and changed everything, she walks around like a zombie, shutting out her friends and ignoring her dreams. We’re both broken, numb, and stuck in limbo.

Until I break my own rules and touch her.
Until she saves me from my nightmares by climbing into my bed.
Until the only thing I want more than having Mia for myself is to protect her from the truth.

I can’t rewrite the past, but I refuse to leave her heart in the hands of fate. For this girl, I’d climb into the sky and rearrange the stars.

SPINNING OUT is a sexy, emotional novel of 100,000 words. It is first in the Blackhawk Boys, a series of standalone novels.

After six long years the talented, hot, handsome and Hollywood star Liam Quinn is back in her life, and in her stage once again. He once broke her heart and it was never the same again for Elissa. She only hoped she’s strong enough not to cross the professional boundaries between them. It was supposed to be easy. After all, he was engage to Hollywood’s It girl. It would have been easy, except six years wasn’t long enough to squash the feelings that they have for each other.

It was fate that had allowed them to cross-path six years ago, is it fate that once again lead them together? Is this their second chance? Or will their hearts get broken for the second time?

I love both characters, they have their quirks and imperfections – but they’re pretty much amazing. Liam has his own reasons why he needed to do what he did, it breaking him apart to. And as for Liss, she’s trying her best to stay away from temptation, to stay professional. But heck, it’s love, and it’s been six years, and he’s so hot, so I really couldn’t blame her. Angel and Josh are equally loveable too. Oh, you’d try to hate Angel because she’s getting in the way: but trust me – YOU CAN’T. And Josh – he’s the life of the book. I do love him!

We are brought behind the scene of the glitz, glamour and dirt of Hollywood and the busy backstage of the theater. Some might found the plot familiar, and might thought it would be predictable, but no – Leisa Rayven made sure you won’t forget this book. She’ll give those surprising twists and turns when you least expect it. And give you an ending you’d never forget. Just as when you thought their happy-ever-after was out of reach, she gives you that moment that will make you believe in fate and in happy endings.


Leisa Rayven have completely blown me away with this funny, sweet, complicated and sexy page-turner novel that gave me one heck of a roller coaster ride which left me breathless and in awe even days after I have read it. So, I’ll leave you with a warning that this book will cause you one major book hang-over.

But Becca’s not ready to forgive and forget. In fact, she seems determined to stoke his fire every chance she gets. She wants to avoid sexy distractions like him? Fine. Because what she doesn’t know—yet—is that Jax isn’t the kind of man to give up when he wants something. And he always gets what he wants.
