Title: Find Me Alastar
Author: T L Swan
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 30, 2016



Blurb

Boredom, the root of my evil.

I had it all, dream job, boyfriend, stability.
So I did the unthinkable, I packed up and left everything that was dear to me. Set out of the journey of a lifetime and it was all going to plan until I met him.

Alastar O’Shea.

An enigmatic, artistic Irishman who had more sexual energy in his pinky finger than anything I had ever dreamed of.
I should have stayed away from him.
He was hot, toxic and the most exhilarating experience of my life.

Like a drug he entered my bloodstream.
Like a drug he brought me undone.
Did I meet him by chance or was it a calculated hit?

I did believe in fairy tales but he isn’t who I thought he was.
Will he find me?
Will it cost me my life?




REVIEW
4* read.
When I started this book it wasn't what I was expecting and different to other books I've read before. I'm not going to say anything about the actually story at all because I feel it needs to be read without knowing anything about it so try to read it before someone gives away spoilers. 
So many twits and turns and drama that you won't want to put it down. Its the type of story that you won't want to put down and then it stays with you days after.

Excerpt

He stands back and his eyes drop down my body for a moment. “Do you want to play a game?”

I smile.

He picks up the bottle of liquor and leads me by the hand into the kitchen.

“Shot glasses?” he asks.

“Umm.” I try to think where I have seen them. “Top cupboard.”

He gets out six shot glasses and lines them up on the bench and then opens the tequila and fills them all.

I stand still and watch him, my core throbbing and wet from the feel of his cock only moments ago.

“What’s the game?” I smirk.

He kisses me and his tongue sweeps though my mouth before he lifts me to sit on the kitchen bench. Fuck, he’s hot.

“The game is called unshot.”

I frown. “Unshot?”

His mouth drops to my breast through my shirt and he bites my nipple.

“For every shot that I drink, I get to take a piece of clothing off you.”
I smile. I like this game.

“What do I get when I drink a shot?” I breathe.

His dark eyes hold mine. “You get my tongue on you somewhere.”

My insides start to liquefy and my ovaries are chanting skull, skull, skull.

He picks up his glass and tips his head back, drinking it down. His large tongue comes out to lick his lips and anticipation thrums through my body. He puts his glass down and lifts my shirt over my head. I sit on the bench in my black lace bra and skirt and stockings.

He licks his lips again and his eyes drop to my breasts. Oh, I want that tongue on me.

I pick up my glass and drink my shot and he bends to pull my bra back and takes my nipple in his mouth, quickly biting me with a hard suck. I jump and my legs open that bit farther by themselves.

He stands and drinks another shot, licks the tequila from his lips again, and lets his dark, wanting eyes burn holes in my restraint.

Holy fuck, this game is hot.

“Stand up.” He growls.

What do you do when all your secrets-- and your heart-- are exposed?

Natalie Anderson has spent her life being strong for everyone else, always putting herself last. But that has come with a price because the stress and secrets are affecting every part of her life. Looking and acting the part is one thing, but feeling it is another. She knows she’s at a crossroads and she needs to make a change, starting with loosening up and living a little.

Kai Pierson is done being a grunt. He’s finally worked his way up the ladder and he now finds himself a rep at the hottest label, representing the hottest band in all of rock music. He’s living the life…alone, but he’s okay with that. It’s the way it needs to be.

Though they’ve never met in person, they become friends and spend hours talking about life. When the chance to meet arrives, neither of them are ready for how they feel when they see each other for the first time.

But when Natalie’s secrets are exposed, will she be able to put it all behind her and find her own happiness, or will the lies destroy her once and for all?




Review:
4.5* read.
This is book 4 in this series and can be read as a standalone but I think you really need to read the others first to get a feel for how great this author is and how she puts such emotion into her books that you completely fall in love with the characters and their story. You also see the main characters in this book throughout the other books to and build up a picture of them so In my opinion i would read the others first before this one.
This is Kai and Natalie's story. Natalie is someone who always puts everyone else first but she realizes she needs to change that and loosen up. Kai and Natalie have never met but work together long distance through emails, phone calls, etc, but when they arrange to meet up neither expects the instant chemistry and feelings. Natalie is hiding a secret, what would happen if this secret came out?, and how will Kai and Natalie get through? You need to read it to find out but make sure you have the tissues ready for the tears that this amazing author will get out of you.
A beautifully wrote story with lots of twists and turns I never expected and a great end to this series.

Title: When the Storm Ends
Author: Jillian Anselmi
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2016



Blurb

When the storm ends, there’s a calm in the air that shows you everything is going to be all right.

But nothing may ever be right again.

Delani Delvecchio has weathered storm after storm throughout her life, but this one may have the potential to break her. After what is supposed to be an anniversary celebration with her friends and boyfriend, Delani gets pulled into her own personal hell.

Taken. Beaten. Tormented.

Delani fights and makes it out, only to realize she’s not safe at home—she’s no longer safe in New York at all. With an untraceable phone, clothes that aren’t her own, and enough money to get her by, she gets on a train and heads to the last place she felt she would be looked for.

What she didn’t expect to find when she got there was him.

Cocky. Charismatic. Safe.

Brody Russell, small town cop, quickly becomes the calm during Delani’s storm.

His presence makes her forget and his southern charm works its way into her heart.

Brody promises to protect her, to be right by her side when the storm ends.

But what if this storm is only the beginning?





REVIEW
4* read.
This is my first time reading anything by this author. I always commend a author who takes a really hard subject and takes you on their emotional journey through everything which is what this author did.
Delani endures so much but yet is such a strong character and when she meets Brody (though i wont tell you how as I don't want to give the story away) i was really rooting for them. Brody lightened up this read and once you get his personality hes a easy character to fall in love with.
I look forward to more from this author.

REVIEW:
 
3* read.
Before I start my review I want to say that I do love this authors work and have read a few books of hers in the past, but out of all her books that I've read I did struggle with this one, mainly because I couldn't get a connection with Fiona or Connor so that really bumped the marks down for me. At some points they really got on my nerves so that I had to skip parts. That been said I do think that other people will love this book if they can find that connection that I couldn't get. I'm not going to say to much more about it as there was nothing wrong with the writing style at all, as usual this author delivers great work just for me personally it wasn't the book for me.

DEFYING HER MAFIOSO by Terri Anne Browning is now LIVE!



BLURB:
Ciro Donati was many things:
My father’s most valued and trusted soldier.
My brother’s best friend and second in command.
And the only man I would give up everything for.

I fell hard for the Mafioso at the tender age of eleven. This beast of a man who I knew made people disappear—and probably enjoyed every second of it—was also the sixteen-year-old boy who had picked me up after I’d fallen flat on my face during my dance recital and told me I was the best ballerina he’d ever seen. He’s watched over me, protected me like I was the most precious thing in the world to him.

And then he sent me away.

Scarlett Vitucci was many things:
The daughter of the biggest Cosa Nostra boss from New York to Chicago.
The sister of the man I would gladly take a bullet for.
And the only woman I would ever love.

Sending her away was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I didn’t deserve her or her love. For three years I stayed away, ignoring the gnawing ache that her absence left in my chest. Now, she was back and fighting what I felt for her was impossible. Letting her go had been a huge mistake.

One I would never repeat.

------
 
REVIEW: 
5* read.
One of my favourite authors has made me fall in love with another story. I could not put this book down from the first chapter, to the very last page. 
This is Ciro and Scarlett's story and boy do they go on a journey. Ciro works for Scarlett's father Vito and has been in her life since they were little. Scarlett's always had a crush on Ciro but doesn't believe he'll ever feel the same. 
Scarlett is a twin and I loved her relationship with Victoria and a I really hope we get her story next. Victoria and Scarlett are twins yet the complete opposite, Ciro's always seen Scarlett as more whereas he sees Victoria as more of a sister.
There is a dark side of this story, although not as dark as some of Terri's past books, and I fell in love with not only the main characters but the supporting characters too and Cristiano (Scarlett and Victoria's brother) is another character whose story I hope to read at some point.
Another great read by a brilliant author who never disappoints with her gripping characters and stories that entrap me and take me along for the ride.

BLURB:
I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.
The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop. Killian Shepard. Shep. We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into a woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life. He’d be back. He was always meant to be mine. He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me. So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do. I got my revenge. I married his brother, Kael. Now we’re one big happy fucking family.

REVIEW

5* read. 

This was a book that took my by surprise and I never thought I'd love it as much as I do.  I was on the edge of my seat throughout wondering what was going on and I loved the excitement of it. Your constantly guessing throughout the story but for me that's what made this such a great and addictive read. 

I'm not going to give anything at all in my review about this story or characters as its a story you need to read without knowing anything first like I did. Its not my normal type of read, infact i usually stay away from one major factor in this book, but I'm so glad i gave it ago.

A gripping story full of ups and downs and an emotional journey that will have you crying along at points.  

PRAISE FOR BLACK SWAN AFFAIR
"OMG what did I just read? This book... WOW!! It's been years since I read a book straight through. Yes, seven hours I was glued to the pages of this book. A yo-yo of emotions that left me breathless with every scene. Black Swan Affair is a must read!!" - NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Nashoda Rose "Black Swan Affair is intense, mesmerizing, a gripping page-turner that had me guessing until the very end! A top 2016 read!" - Anne Mercier, Bestselling Author "Simply Amazing. KL had me from page one and I had to pry my fingers off my Kindle when it was over." - Winter Travers, Amazon Bestselling Author of The Devil's Knights Series and The Skid Row Kings Series

About A HARMLESS LITTLE GAME

Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television. Too bad I wasn’t awake for it. The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did. Share. They shared me. But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing? Not one single thing. That was my boyfriend, Drew. And that was the last time I saw him. Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control. You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed. Never faced consequences. Until today. Game on. * * * A Harmless Little Game is the first in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

REVIEW:
4* read.
Reading the blurb I wasn't at all sure if I'd enjoy this book at all or whether I'd be even comfortable reading it. That been said I'm always willing to give any book a try and I'm really glad I did as I did enjoy it it was just slightly lacking in places for me. The one main problem I had was Lindsay's feelings towards Drew and how quickly their relationship developed after everything that happened, I just feel like it could have been better as more of a slow burn but that's just my own personal preference. That been said this was such an emotional rollercoaster of a read that will stay with you days after and I'm looking forward to the next part and to see where else their story goes.
A pact book full of mystery thriller drama and romance it was a book I couldn't put down. It was different to what I normally read and it does end on a cliffhanger but I still enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone.

BOOKS IN THE SERIES:

Sentenced (Jaded Regret, #1)

THE BAD BOY: I’m Johnny. An ex-con with a bad attitude and a controlling demeanor that somehow made the women flock to my bed but never my heart. It was unavailable for possession.
THE TEMPTATION: She was just supposed to be a two day hookup. But one taste of her and I knew I was in danger of never getting enough. She had her own demons to contend with, and dealing with my own was hard enough. I won't allow temptation to take control of me.

THE SENTENCE: I'd given myself a life sentence a long time ago, and she made me want things I wouldn't allow myself to have. Giving into it just might destroy us both.

♫  Snared (Jaded Regret, #2)
BEAU has never known a good life, only the torment that lives inside his head every day. The only way to block out the darkness that shrouds him is through the rhythmic beat of his drums. Knowing what happens when he opens up to anyone, Beau buries his pain deep inside, keeping it all to himself.
APRIL has lived a life of wealth and privilege, full of love and support. Her only insight into what it's like to have a rough life is through her work with foster children.

TOGETHER, they are mismatched, ill-fated, and COMBUSTIBLE. But when their connection is challenged by the collision of past, present, and future,
will they be snared by love... or circumstances?

♫  Hartstrings (Jaded Regret, #3) 
Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto— play women’s bodies like he does the strings of his guitar— hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.
He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there's so much more to him than anyone really knows…

Now that he’s successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who’s ever held his heart. The only thing is…will he really want to know the truth?

She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn’t expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.

When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music... with his heart?

REVIEW
4.5* read for the series.
This is a series that I fell in love with from book one and couldn't wait to read the rest of the series. I love this authors writing style, you get completely captivated with the story and characters and I find that I can't put them down till I get to the very last page.
I don't want to say to much about the series except that although they can be read as standalones, in my opinion you should read them all so you can fall in love with every character like I did. At lot of different issues are faced in each book and this author writes it in such a brilliant and sensitive way that you can't help going on the journey with them.
A surprising series that I never expected to love as much as I did.
