The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan - ARC Review & Blog Tour

TRK - BT banner

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

REBEL_KING_FINAL

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.
Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

Iron Crowne by CD Reiss - ARC Review & Blog Tour

IC - BT banner


“Fans are going to go completely nuts over the irresistible Bryon Crowne and his intelligent, fiery counterpart Olivia.” 

-—Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times bestseller

Iron-Crowne-cover

Byron Crowne is a charming liar and a gorgeous monster.
I detest him.
I can't resist him.
He’s awakened desires I didn’t know I had.
When he touches me, I need to fight him . . . and I need him to win.
Our one night stand bruises my skin and leaves dents in the walls, but the sheets aren't the only thing we shred that night.
And suddenly, the stakes are higher than ever.
***
Olivia Monroe lights a fire in me that died a long time ago.
I’m a different man when I’m with her. I need to own her, take her, mark her as mine.
Everything changes when she might be pregnant and for the first time in my life . . . I’m powerless against this stubborn, untamable woman.
She’s the one in control and I have an impossible job:
Prove I’m worthy to be a father.


I think the thing I enjoy most about books by CD Reiss is the lottle bit of an edge they all have. Her characters aren't all good, they aren't all bad. Situations are messy, just like life. And Byron and Olivia are human, with faults and failings as well as strengths and things about them that were perfect.

I also really enjoyed the plot of this one. Maybe because it's what I do in real life, but I am always fascinated by the things that make people react and change. It's interesting to me to watch, to see the things that barely register and the things that cause them to be someone else, to see things in a new way.

That's what this is about, for both of them and it was so interesting to watch it happen.

Add in that it's hot and their chemistry is amazing, and you have another great read that feels honest and real.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

“Why should I sleep with you?” I cross-examined the witness. It was the only way to manage Byron. He considered his cup as if committing to his goal, then studied the way my finger tapped the counter as if choosing a strategy, then pondered my face as he decided on his tactic. “Because you’re wet already,” he said with a deep knowledge of what aroused women looked like. “Because you want what I can give you. Your head hasn’t even acknowledged it, but your body knows.” “That’s—” I was going to end in a denial, but my nipples were hard. “—not relevant. You and I don’t make sense.” “That’s correct.” He gulped tea. I left my cup on the counter, refusing the challenge. “We are a disaster. You despise me too much to want a relationship and just enough to turn you on. And from what I can tell, you don’t want to get involved enough to force an ethical quandary. So, if you agree in principal, I have a proposal.” Agreeing in principle meant revealing how badly my body ached for him. Disagreeing meant never satisfying that ache. “I agree in principal.” “My proposal is one night. One full night…” I could commit to that, and I was about to when he continued. “…where I own your body.” “Wait.” “You let me own you when we fuck. You come when I say. You obey me without hesitating. That’s what you want and you know it.” My cheeks prickled, radiating the heat of my shame. “No, then.” I pushed my cup away. “It’s never been like that. I’ve had three long relationships and a couple of flings but never—” “—really enjoyed it.” It was all lies… even when he spoke the truth, he lied.

About MORE THAN PLEASURE YOU

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series… 

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever? I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. Though he insisted I get over his transgressions, I can’t. So I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take. When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancĂ©. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

Violent Triumphs by Jessica Hawkins-ARC Reviews



Title: Violent Triumphs
Series: White Monarch #3
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb

The highly anticipated conclusion to the “emotional, steamy, and dangerous” USA Today bestselling White Monarch series.

I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.

I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel.

This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

Man Cuffed by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby - ARC Review




A new comedy from the USA Today bestselling duo!

Mac

A good cop can always spot trouble. That’s why my senses started pinging the moment I met the hottie next door. The neighborhood may never be the same. First she confuses me for a male stripper and tries to remove my uniform. (The guys on the force will never let me live that down.) And then there’s the breaking and entering.

I don’t know what to do with her. My libido has a few ideas of its own, though. Bad, bad ideas.

Meg

Hey, it’s not my fault that Hot Cop’s nightstick gets excited every time we see each other. And I can’t help that someone broke into his apartment.

Fine—that last thing was totally my fault. And I intend to make amends. So when he needs a date for his sister’s wedding, I’m there. This is right up my alley. I’m an actor. By the time it’s over, his entire family will believe we’re a couple.

Even him.

Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero.
