Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle Review by Sarah

Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle Review by Sarah

Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle Buy on Amazon Goodreads Genres: Fiction, Horror ***A Standalone Horror Romance coming February 2014*** A note about this book: Donners of the Dead is set in 1851 – couples were often thrust into marriage together with short courtships, racism was widespread and not overly frowned upon, and women had little to no rights. What wouldn’t fly in today’s day and age was unfortunately the norm back then – it is worth keeping that in mind when reading this book. Jake McGraw was unlike anyone I’d ever known. He was brash, rude, unapologetic and arrogant; chauvinistic, close-minded, and terribly stubborn. He was built like a tree, tall with a hard chest and wide shoulders and hands that looked like they could wrestle a bear. He was a cigar-chomping, scruffy-faced, beast of a man. I was pretty sure I hated him. And I know he […]

Hero by Leighton Del Mia Review by Kathy

Hero by Leighton Del Mia Review by Kathy

Hero Buy on Amazon Goodreads Calvin Parish They call me Hero. I defend. I protect. I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good. Doesn’t it? That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession. Cataline Ford I work hard. I play by the rules. I’m content. My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden. Doesn’t it? One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once. And just because you’re reading this […]

Review for Slide

Review for Slide

Slide Series: , Slide by Garrett Leigh I must first say that the writing in this book blew me away! There was something so gentle and absorbing and real about the way it was written and I was hooked from the very beginning. That’s not to say this isn’t an angsty and emotional book because it very much is! It pulled on my heartstrings, made me laugh, made me angry, and had me falling in love. “I wanted to wrap my bones around him and never let go.” The main characters in this book, Ash and Pete, are just wonderful!! Pete is a paramedic for the CFD. He is a no-nonsense kind a guy with an abundance of patience. He’s a protector, he’s caring and he finds something in Ash that he’s drawn to. “His eyes blazed at me, but it was the best kind of heat. He smiled, and […]

Review for Her Master’s Courtesan by Lily White

Review for Her Master’s Courtesan by Lily White

Buy on Amazon Her Master’s Courtesan by Lily White My rating: 5 of 5 stars This story DID NOT leave me disappointed and is most definitely how a dark tale should be told. It was also written very well! Let me just say though…it is DARK!!!! I would classify it as dark erotica and a psychological thriller rolled into one. It is disturbing, violent, chilling and all consuming. A story of being stripped of your identity and being “re-born” as someone or something else. Aiden is not a nice man. He trains slaves/Courtesans for a secret society of wealthy men who want sub’s. Aiden is the anti-hero and is cruel, manipulative, calculated, sexy, and super intense. He makes absolutely no apologies for who he is. Money and power is his main goal and nothing, not even emotions, will get in his way. “I didn’t want emotion – I wanted to […]

Review of ‘All of You’ by Christina Lee

Review of ‘All of You’ by Christina Lee

3.5 stars! All of You’s book blurb had me immediately at virgin, tattooed neighbor!  Who doesn’t love the sound of that?! Avery and Bennett come from very similar backgrounds; they both grew up in a house with very absentee, single mothers who had continuously horrible relationships with men.  Their mothers’ relationship drama made a serious impact on each of them, but in completely different ways.  Avery is very much against commitment.  She just wants a man for the pleasure, and for a one time only arrangement.  Bennett is the exact opposite.  He’s waiting for ‘the one.’ After Avery and Bennett have a chance meeting at a college frat party, they discover the next day that they will also be neighbors.  Their relationship slowly progresses from neighbors, to friends, and then to something more.  Their views on commitment and relationships make them hit many roadblocks, but neither one can resist their […]
