Dirty Beautiful Rich (Part Three) by Eva Devon (Review)

When we start Part Three of Eva Devon's Dirty Beautiful Rich, we have arrived in Ireland. I adore Julie's enthusiasm for being in the land of her ancestors. It's quite refreshing. Anyway, we get a little more of the story. Damien's secrets start to slowly reveal themselves. Kind like the onion, and we are slowly peeling away the layers. However, there are a lot of layers to this onion.

What we find in this part of the story is things viewed in Julie's eyes and meeting Damien's family. I must say they are an interesting bunch. So far we've had Damien working on Julie's self-cofindence. However, by the end of Part Three I wonder if what he did might set him back a couple steps. I felt crush for Julie, but she kind of presses forward. What will Part Four bring us? Oh the agony of the wait.

His heart may be the last thing she ever steals...

Marlowe is a pickpocket, a housebreaker-and a better actress than any professional on the stage. She runs with the Covent Garden Cubs, a gang of thieves living in the slums of London's Seven Dials. It's a fierce life, and Marlowe has a hard outer shell. But when she's alone, she allows herself to think of a time before-a dimly remembered life when she was called Elizabeth.

Maxwell, Lord Dane, is intrigued when his brother, a hired investigator, ropes him into his investigation of the fiercely beautiful hellion. He teaches her to navigate the social morass of the ton, but Marlowe will not escape so easily. Instead, Dane is drawn into her dangerous world, where the student becomes the teacher and love is the greatest risk of all.

ChasingMe_Final

CHASING ME by Jennifer Probst

BOOK SUMMARY:

Quinn and James' Story Continues in Chasing Me...

It was supposed to be a love story....

I knew she was out of my league but I didn’t care. Looking back, I wonder if I hadn’t pursued her, would things have turned out differently? Is it Fate that determines our choices in life? God? Free will? Or just plain old innate selfishness?

I got her, of course. There hadn’t been a girl I wasn’t able to seduce. Problem was she seduced me right back, body, mind, and soul. She possessed me, tormented me, and showed me a world that was so bright and pure I was almost blinded.

Didn’t she know after such a drug I could never settle for less? Didn’t she realize no matter how many times I screwed up, or broke her heart, or bent her to my will, I’d never be able to let her go? If I hadn’t known such intensity existed, would it have been better for both of us?

True love, the real kind, isn’t nice and sweet and pure. No, it’s dirty, and sinful, and messy. It’s like ripping a chunk of flesh from your body and watching yourself bleed out in slow, helpless intervals until you thankfully pass out.

 This isn’t a love story. But it’s the only story I got.

Her Highland Fling by Jennifer McQuiston (Review)

I had a fit of the giggles when I started Her Highland Fling by Jennifer McQuiston, and it all stems from the meeting between William MacKenzie and Penelope Tolbertson.

So, William wants to save Moraig before it goes into financial ruin. He hears about a London reporter coming to write about Moraig, and he wants to present Moraig in it's best light. However, he gets shocked by the fact she's a woman and doesn't know what to do. He becomes a hot mess. Basically, he gets painted as a bumbling fool in  Penelope's eyes. Of course, Penelope is thinking where did they get this guy. However, that all changes as she gets to know him and finds out more about him.

I thought this story was a cute quick read. I just adore how William gets all tripped up when he's around Penelope. It's adorable. There are two directions on how a guy will act when he's around a girl he likes: 1) he becomes adorkable or 2) obnoxious and mean. Fortunately, we got adorkable William. Penelope is sitting on the self, because she believes no one would want to be with a girl who stumble over her words (stutters, but her stutter wasn't too bad). So yeah, Highland Fling is a cute read quick read.

InkSlinger PR Release Launch + Giveaway: Her Fallen Protector by Nichole Severn

HFP RDL Banner

It's release day for Her Fallen Protector by Nichole Severn!! I am so excited to share this new paranormal romance with you!! Nichole is sharing new teases with us and giveaways, so be sure to check out all of the info!

Her-Fallen-Protector-500 (1)


Her Fallen Protector Synopsis:

When a trio of demons kidnap Vdarra Jansen, her normal life is ripped away. Her abductors claim she is the “lost heiress” of the Underworld, and the commander of the mighty Army of Duemos. They don't seem to care that she knows nothing about the Underworld, or that she only remembers the last ten years of her life...    

Former archangel Jacob will do anything to bring back his lost love’s memories. But if he succeeds, it could mean the end of the world. Torn between love and duty, Jacob will do whatever it takes to save her.   

Jacob and Vdarra must learn to trust each other, and push aside old hurts to find their way. They are in a race to find the one thing that will decide Vdarra’s, and the world’s, fate – the lost Seal of Solomon. It will mean choosing between innocent lives ...and their hearts.

Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken (Review)

Whoa! It's been a while since, I decided finishing a book was more important than sleep. Granted I have done that these past few months, but this was a choice I had to finished the book. I don't know why it took me so long to read Rachel Van Dyken's Elicit, because I have loved the series since book Elite. I just decided I needed to read Elicit.

At the end of Entice, a lot of things went down. Let's just get it out there the drama just explodes. So, we have Tex and he has become the head honcho, so there will be many out to get him. After all Campisi, and sometimes blood will be thicker than water. Mo finds out that Tex is in danger, so a plan was created to save him. Basically it boils down on how Tex and Mo handle the situation.

Oh my goodness, I don't know where to beginning with my thoughts, because it was awesome. Seriously, there is drama galore. Not only that we have a lot of POV of views going on in this story that feed into the drama. At certain times I wasn't sure how Mo and Tex were ever going to be together, because so much subterfuge going on that it got me going "What the hell?" However, the Elicit grabbed me and wouldn't let go with me. I tried to put the damn book down, but I had to know how the chaos that was beginning was going to end. There is so much, I want to say, but at the same time I can't.

Basically, a gripping story. I'm going to say this again this is a series thats needs to be started from the beginning, because the story builds off each book. You could start Elicit without reading the others, but it's not advise. Now I need to get to Ember, so I could talk about one particular character.

Cover Reveal + Giveaway: Roses are Red... Violet is Dead by Monica -Marie Vincent


Violet Sumner has a stalker.

Between her largely dysfunctional family of two and the friends she doesn’t feel particularly close to, Violet thinks he’s the least of her problems. What she fails to understand is that the guy is no prankster and soon people turn up dead or missing. Because of her.

Things change when Violet’s best friend disappears and realization sinks in that the stalker means business. Denial put aside, Violet has no other option but to accept the help of police Sergeant Willard Kelley and his rather sweet protégé, to come to terms with the seriousness of the situation.
Yet nothing could’ve prepared her for her close up with the psycho.

Who will survive in this tale of obsession and misplaced devotion?


Monica-Marie Vincent writes Young Adult novels about troubled teens and even more troubled parents. She currently lives in Sacramento, CA although she would rather be in her home town of San Francisco. Thanks to her very put upon husband Monica-Marie is always well stocked with coffee, Diet Coke, and Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetos, so she wouldn't have to move away from her writerly lair to do mundane things like shopping.

Sweet Surprise by Candis Terry (Review)

Today's read was Candis Terry's Sweet Surprise. Let me just say that this story was super sweet that it could give you a cavity. It was sweet and mushy in all the right places. However, don't let that fool you, because there are moments where it was getting a little hot. One scene had me thinking of Nelly's Hot In Herre, I completely lost it with the giggles. Trust me that scene was hot and loved every moment. Anyway, I better get on with the rest of my thoughts.

Fiona is just too adorable. Seriously, she's like the cupcakes she makes, but there is more to her. Well, she's still friends with her ex-husband and his new fiancee, which would normally awkward for most. Yet, she knows that they are suppose to be together. She puts her daughter first. With her being super sweet and caring she tends to put others before herself. Her best friend had to point out that she deserve more:
"I know. But you my friend, deserve a man who looks at you with such love he can't stand to blink. I just don't understand why you keep yourself wrapped up so tight you won't give anyone a chance."
Here fear was she was going turn back to Naughty Fiona. Naughty Fiona does make a quick appearance in the story, but for the most part the good Fiona stays most of the book. *Snort*

Now Mike has the hots for Fiona, but there's the Bro-Code in place. You know the one that states you don't touch another Bro's ex.  Boy he sticks to that sucker like there is no tomorrow, but he's no match for Jana Wilder. Now that woman can make sure she gets her way no matter what. She would be Match Maker Extraordinaire. However, he kind of lets his divorce almost taint what he could have with Fiona. Good thing he comes to his sense. Silly man.

I adore these two, because take things super slow. Both of them feel that they should rush things, because they are both divorcees. Plus, Fiona has a daughter she has to look after. Overall, Sweet Surprise is definitely a sweet read with a little dash of heat. It's a dash, but enough to spice things up. I would compare it to a chocolate truffle with a coating of cayenne pepper. Basically, if you are looking for that sweetness with a dash of heat, you might give Sweet Surprise a taste.

Favorite Sappy moment when Jana says the sweetest thing to Fiona:
She reached out and cradled Fiona's cheek in her palm. "Sugarplum, I may have given birth to five boys, but you are a daughter of my heart. Divorce from my son doesn't sever the love I have for you. Nothing ever will." She gave Fiona's cheek a gentle pat. "You remember that."
It's okay to grab your tissue.

FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MADELINE HUNTER

She was a sensible woman.
He was a man who could drive a woman senseless with desire. 


Gareth Fitzallen is celebrated for four things: his handsome face, his notable charm, his aristocratic connections, and an ability to give the kind of pleasure that has women begging for more. Normally he bestows his talents on experienced, worldly women. But when he heads to Langdon’s End to restore a property he inherited—and to investigate a massive art theft—he lays plans to seduce a most unlikely lady.

Eva Russell lives a spinster’s life of precarious finances and limited dreams while clinging to her family’s old gentry status. She supports herself by copying paintings while she plots to marry her lovely sister to a well-established man. Everyone warns her of Gareth’s reputation, and advises her to lock her sister away. Only it is not her sister Gareth desires. One look, and she knows he is trouble. One kiss, however, proves she is no match for this master of seduction.
