“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He refuses to fall in love.
He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.
Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.
Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

She is lost.
Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.
King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.
Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

~Review~

4-star

 

I’m stunned, awestruck and high!  How can this author merge two different elements and make it one? And then, for the final result OWN IN IT! Freaking awesome, I must say. I was surprised by so many twists, that I got even scared to laugh or cry. I peeked the page, before actually starting to read; just to be on the safe side, but every precaution went downhill. She got me, every single time. It was an intense read, full of emotions and tough characters.  You get to see two different sides of the main characters (Angel and Jay), which in my perspective made it all unique. How the two of them got their own problems, but had the determination to keep moving on. Even if their love got them scared, they were one another anchor. I will say this is not a sweet, picking flowers story, this is raw and hot. First, with a kick-ass, independent, sassy heroine with the mouth of a sailor. And then with a military, hard abs, tanned skin, dominant, f*cking sexy, sweet hot guy. YUM! It’s a combustible pair! This is what made this story roll, how everything was so different from each other and yet it was what they needed. (Makes sense?) I have to say that this author shows she write with her heart. Since, they were time that Angel, had some f*cking lines like that they were so painfully sweet that got my undies wet.

“It was more than sex. It was more than lust. It was passion. It was raw. It was real. And it was ours.”

F*cking Angel.  Sigh*  

In the end, this is action packed, panic induced, safe, hot read.

Until he meets James Holden, CEO of Holden House.

Just a little fun – that’s what James tells himself. He can’t afford to care for someone who can never reciprocate, not once they find out who he really is. James believes nobody deserves the burden of being attached to him. He’s a complicated man. Damaged. Difficult. Demanding.

Broken.

~Review~

Sometimes when war or changes are coming, drums are heard. The wind carries its sound across the earth and it ripples across the untamable ocean, in a continuous echo. And I heard it. I heard the drums as I read Broken by Nicola Haken.  Change was inevitable. Words where skipping across the pages and my heart felt heavy and free as I lived this story.  There are many books in this vast world of literature, but I must say that this one has a permanent place in my library and heart. I confess that I had to pause this story for a while to compose my mind, heart and life. I was no longer reading; I was listening to the voices of each character, felling to a degree that it was too much, I wanted to scream, punch something, cry and love, I was enthralled.

The author portrayed a unique and heart wrenching story, it was beautiful. I feel so honored to read this, and a piece of my heart will always belong to these couple, but James will always be my baby. I love him so much, and even if he’s a fictional character I want to say this to you, James.

Keep fighting for you, stay strong and chin up, because you also gave me strength. Don’t know why or how you just did. And I thank you for that.-

All’s fair in love and WAR, right?
Not this time.

Breaking Hearts (Full Hearts #4) by MJ Summers

20 Nov
 
Breaking Hearts (Full Hearts #4) by MJ Summers

Book: Breaking Hearts

Author: MJ Summers

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Releases 17th November
Synopsis

Another unforgettable page-turner from MJ Summers . . .
Three years have passed since handsome, devil-may-care Trey Johnson betrayed his cousin, Cole, and left the family ranch in Colorado behind. Guilt-ridden, a reformed Trey has kept his nose to the grindstone and has done his best to distance himself from his reckless past. Now he’s shocked to discover that he is about to become a full-time father to his son, a child he barely knows.
Travelling to Brazil, Trey embarks on the fight of his life in order to bring his little boy home. Broke and very much alone, the last thing he expects is to find himself falling for Alessandra Santos, his son’s nanny. The sparks between them fly, but is there too much at stake?
Alessandra, obedient daughter and top law student, always does what others expect. Whether trying to meet the expectations of her hard-nosed mother or the unreasonable demands of her employer, Alessandra finds it almost impossible to reach for what she really wants. But now that Trey Johnson has sauntered into her life, she will have to find her true voice or lose him forever.
Joined by the fate of a little boy, Alessandra and Trey must decide if they can find a way to open their hearts to each other or turn away from a chance at love.
PRAISE FOR MJ SUMMERS
MJ Summers is slowly killing me. First she wrote a book about a sexy cowboy and now she’s written one about a sexy Frenchman. I loved Breaking Love and it was worth every one of the 5 stars that I gave it.
~ Karen, A Thousand Lives Book Blog
‘”I inhaled this book… Riveting sexual heat… a delicious and definite five star read.”
~Jennifer Sage – Author of The Guardian Archives Series “A fun, often humorous, escapist tale that will have readers blushing, laughing and rooting for its characters.” 

~KIRKUS REVIEW of Breaking Love 

What other authors so often fail, MJ championed in this book: in many books this long process of will they/won’t they is just too long and after some time it loses the whole appeal, but here… it was not flat or boring for a second, it was all the time gripping and had you on the tips of your toes.
Altogether, the book has made a fascinating, steamy… quick read. Why quick? Well, because I couldn’t put it down, so engrossed was I in Megan and Luc’s lives. It is a brilliant love story written with a lot of feeling and understanding…. MJ Summers can really write a hot romance with great characters in it, full of misunderstandings, twist and turns, heartbreaks and hurt but still with a lot of joy and that is a great entertainment. I have really enjoyed this book and will be keeping my eye on MJ Summers in the future.

JACOB (Kings of Guardian Book 1)












SYNOPSIS
Victoria Marshall didn’t cooperate by dying in the Afghani hell-hole like the CIA expected. Defying all probability, a privately-funded black ops group led by a handsome, sexy-as-sin southerner pulled her out of the warlord’s prison cell and brought her home. Even half out of her mind with pain Tori knew this man was special. She made a date with the commander to meet one year later at a restaurant of his choice. Keeping that date was the best thing she ever did.
Jacob King found little physically attractive about the woman he saved from the warlord’s camp, though it was hard to see what lay under the filth and suppurating wounds she suffered from countless beatings. He admired her brave humor in the face of her agonizing injuries. This kind of tough-minded woman was someone he’d like to know as a friend. He never expected the leggy, blond bomb-shell in the red dress who showed up for their date.
But then he never expected she would save his life, either. In a world of shadows, smoke, and dangerous covert missions, where people routinely vanish and living one more day was never a given, Tori and Jacob fight to build their happily ever after.

Sophie’s Voice by Helen Hardt

12 Nov
Book: Sophie’s Voice
Author: Helen Hardt
Genre: Victorian era, erotic, historical
Release Date – 9th February 2016
Synopsis

Lady Sophie MacIntyre has the voice of an angel, but due to her timid nature, no one ever hears it. After losing a bet to her conniving sister, Sophie auditions for the new musicale at the Regal Theatre run by handsome actor Zachary Newland. Though distracted by Zach’s elegant masculinity and her own nerves, she sings well and earns a role in the production.
Zach is a confirmed bachelor, and his taste in women leans toward the glamorous and uninhibited…until he meets the demure Sophie. Her delicate soprano and understated beauty captivate him. She responds to his inappropriate kiss, but quickly dismisses the heat between them. She’s a lady of the peerage, after all, and not one to associate with a rake like him.
Zach, however, is not so easily dissuaded. He gets what he wants, and he intends to help Sophie find her true voice…in more ways than one.

“Thank you, Uncle Dean,” she said sweetly. 

“Did you just say uncle?” I asked menacingly, and I felt her smile on my back. This woman was too much.
