Excerpt

Twenty minutes late and running out of patience I reached in quickly undid her belt and picked her up, ignoring her squeal of surprise I pulled her purposefully flush against me one hand full of lush ass the other on her hip.
Lowering my head to her neck I took a deep breath in, catching the soft vanilla scent of her blonde hair taking as much as I could get I gently bit her earlobe then ran my lips over the same spot.
“Don’t push me, Princess. I’m clear out of give a fucks and my dick's so hard it could hammer nails. Move that sweet ass before I bend it over and fuck it into oblivion” I growled in her ear driving the point home with a quick swat to her ass.
Making sure her feet were on the ground I let go and stalked for the house adjusting my now very tight in the crotch jeans. I also didn’t miss the soft moan from Teeny before she cleared her throat and mumbled something about assholes and penis trucks then stomped up the sidewalk.

Excerpt

I threw my leg over my bike and started for her. The streetlight out front was busted, causing the place to be darker than normal. There was just enough light that as I walked behind her, I could see her sexy little ass encased in those prissy jeans she always wore. I caught up to her at the bottom of the stairs and reached out to grab her arm before she made it any further. Next thing I knew, Teen spun, her fist flying right into my nose; at the same time, she drove her knee up into my groin, dropping me like a sack of shit to the ground.

“F*ckkkkkkkk” I moaned, cupping my junk, rolling up onto my knees, and trying to get my breath back. Pain shot up into my stomach with each attempt.
“Oh, it’s just you.” Teeny breathed hard. I looked up at her through narrowed eyes.
“Oh, it’s just…F*ck, Princess. What the hell’d you do that for?” I wheezed.
“Well, you deserved it. You don’t sneak up behind a chick and expect not to get hit. Now, get up, dipshit. You’re making a scene,” she hissed, looking around the complex.

DARK AND HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL....IT WILL LEAVE YOU BREATHLESS!!!!  ~Lorie, Goodreads

Words CAN.NOT describe what a beautiful, emotional, gut-wrenching, soul-searching kind of read Tears of Tess was for me. ~ Jacqueline's Reads

Synopsis

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. 

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror. 

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

Wrenching,emotional,terrifying and triumphant...a dark and suspenseful page turner! ~Jona, Goodreads

I have simply fallen in love with these characters, and their beautifully tragic story. ~Lauren, Goodreads

Synopsis

“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs make a right."

Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.

He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster

Synopsis
“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.”

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside.

~ Review ~

*** I received an ARC for an honest review ***


Ms Lola Stark surpassed herself with this one... From page one I was immersed into Teeny and Trip's lives.. Trip is a cocky bastard but he can be sweet and sensitive too. He totally stole my heart, sorry to break it to you Mace but you no longer hold the #1 spot?

This story gave me everything I wanted, I laughed out loud numerous times and cried a couple of times too. A brilliant sequel to Tattered Love. I look forward to read more of Needles Kiss Series. 


It's due to go live 27th December, keep your eyes open for the an updated post with purchase links.

Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run #4) by Madeleine Urban & Abigail Roux

Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run, #4)Divide & Conquer by Madeleine Urban
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Genre: Gay Romance, Crime/Thriller

"Baltimore, Maryland, is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners.

Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end."


~Review~

Wow, this series just gets better and better. Divide & Conquer was so full of angst compared to the earlier ones.. I still loved it. It made me sad, happy, anxious  and I even yelled "hallelujah" more than once too.

“Marines either know how to use an iron or they get married [...]. The iron is less dangerous.” 

This series needs reading.

Fish & Chips (Cut & Run #3) by Madeleine Urban & Abigail Roux

Fish & Chips (Cut & Run, #3)Fish & Chips by Madeleine Urban
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Genre: Gay Romance, Crime/Thriller

"Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job, settled into a personal and professional relationship built on fierce protectiveness and blistering passion. Now they're assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring-an out-and-proud married couple-on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they'd rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is. Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game of their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, Ty and Zane realize there's more to being partners than watching each other's backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty's life, Ty and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own."

~Review~

I just Adore Ty and Zane.
In this adventure the two partners are sent on a Caribbean Cruise, undercover taking the place of two crooks hoping to bring down more of the ring.

  "Corbin and Del Porter aren't brothers, gentlemen. They're lovers. Legally married in fact." He reached out and place two silver rings on the desk in front of them. "Go ahead, put those on." He instructed.

Getting to watch Ty and Zane as an out the closet couple was so heart warming. I really hope they come out to the Bureau in the next book. I don't want them to hide now I have seen them like we did in this book.

Finally those three words actually got said in this book. I have never wanted to hear the words "I love you" more in my life then I did between these two. Because we all know they both love each other. I won't tell you who said it though. ;)

Obviously shit hits the fan somewhere along the line. It wouldn't be a Grady and Garrett case if it was all smooth sailing...

I can't wait to start their next adventure, Divide & Conquer.
