This is the first in the Dark Kings series.
And wow, what a way to start the series!
Titan is hot. He’s unapologetically who is he and that doesn’t change. Emilee is caught between and a rock and a hard place and he isn’t making it much easier lol
Their history and chemistry is off the charts and when you mix in the boisterous combination of their friends it’s no surprise there are fireworks. Loved it.
I devoured this story in a matter of hours and am heading into book two. I wish it was Bones next but I’m ready to see what Grave has to offer.

This is the first in the Brinton Manor boys books and you don’t have to have read the Rebels of Sandland beforehand, but I have.
I don’t even know where to start with this review. Adam was everything I knew he would be and Liv, Liv was the girl I know we’ve all been.
Everyone has questioned their place. In their families, in their friendship groups, in everything. It’s part of growing up, part of really learning who you are and what you stand for.
So, we’ve all been there and we all get it and the fact that she’s so relateable allows you to fall in love with him. Because who could love the man that put Finn through everything that went on in Fractured Minds?
I don’t know, but somehow, you do.
It’s not just that he doesn’t conform to societal norms, or that he’s a little off the rails. The logic behind his actions are plausible, understandable, when you know where he’s coming from.
But no-one would have given him a chance without Livs insight. This is a great story, written beautifully. Completely recommended!

This is the second in the Rosewood High Series.
I flew straight into this one on the back of Thorne and I’m sure I’ll be heading into Savage next. These are interconnected standalones so you don’t necessarily have to read them in order, I just like to.
Loved Mason, floppy hair and all. What a sweet arsehole he is LOL I’m pretty sure he goes to hell and back in this story but irs worth every second of it.
Cami is great. She’s flawed and human in all the right places without being a complete doormat. They’re a great couple and I can’t wait to see what comes next!

This is the first book in the Rosewood High Series.
I love Tracy’s stories and when I went searching through my ereader looking for… something, I knew I could count on her for an intriguing story.
I didn’t realise this vaguely ties in with Maddison Kings and it was cool to get a little sneaky peek of Leon and Luca!
Jake is… complicated. And broken. And fantastic.
I loved the push and pull between him and Amalie and with enemies to lovers being one of my favourites I’m not disappointed.
Looking forward to delving into book two 💞
Title: Sancte Diabole
Author: Amo Jones
This is part of The Elite Kings Club series and they need to be read in order.
Well, she’s done it again. Left me with more questions than we started with and dying for book two!
Brantley is The Dark King and he more than fills that role!
Saint is his opposite, but not. She’s very knowledgeable for someone supposedly so sheltered.
Looking forward to finishing this crazy ass ride and getting Maddy and Bishop back on track!
Title: The Deception You Weave
Author: Tracy Lorraine
This is the second of a trilogy and you do need to read The first book before this one.
I am loving this set of stories! I love the way Tracy writes and draws you through from one section to the next, it’s done so seemingly effortless.
Kane is HOT! If you’re looking for a hero you’re going to hate, hate to love, and eventually love then this guy is your man! Seriously, he takes heat to the next level and he loves HARD.
Letty is still bouncing around from one thing to the next with only half a clue about what’s going on which is definitely understandable but frustrating.
I’m really excited to see where the fibale of this story takes us! Just another week to wait!
Title: Truths That Saints Believe
Author: Anne Malcolm
This is the second in the Klutch duet and you need to read The Lies That Sinners Tell first.
I feel like I’ve written and re written this review so many times!
I really enjoyed this story. Even though I wouldn’t and haven’t made the same decisions as the heroine. I struggled with her choices is in this and how she approached them but I can appreciate the emotion behind it.
So whilst those decisions aren’t part of who I am and how I think its written in a way that still allowed me to fall in love with the characters and their story.
Like I said in my review for book one; it’s different. Not your typical romance. But it’s beautifully written and an amazing world to fall into. I’m hoping there is more to come with these characters, I’d love to see Wrens story x
Title: The Muse
Author: Hart de Lune
This is the first in series.
It left a lot of questions open and it didn’t feel like their story really got a resolution but I guess we’ll see how that transpires in the next book.
I really liked the dynamic between Seffi and Scott and despite all the noble things he could have, should have, done he couldn’t help but be drawn to her.
I think I was expecting more of a darker, Mafia style story but again that might come out more as we go through the series. There are definitely hints in there about more going on with Landon and I’m really excited to see where that goes.
Overall, good story, hot connection, I liked it and am looking forward to seeing what comes in future instalments!
Title: The Lies that Sinners Tell
Author: Anne Malcolm
This is the first in a duet.
Despite my hatred for cliffhangers I know I could trust Anne with a duet and I wasn’t disappointed.
I struggled a bit with the POV on this one. The story is told mostly from Stella’s point of view; first person, but there are some sections third person from Jay which took a bit to get my head around.
Stella is light, easy, fluffy, a little bit of a shopaholic and with some of those shoes I can see why. But there’s an underlying fear, a darkeness, one that is only drawn into the light when she enters an arrangement with Jay.
Jay is a little bit of an enigma as we don’t see a lot from his point of view. He’s obviously involved in some dark business, something he doesn’t want Stella exposed to. But there’s a terrified, broken, little boy underneath the hard exterior.
I love her friends. I love how their thoughts and feelings change over the course of the book, that they’re not tied to their initial expectations for her.
I’m interested to see where this one is going, to see what comes in the second half of their story.
This isn’t a typical Anne Malcolm story. This isn’t a typical romance. This is something different, something else, and I’m intrigued to see how she pulls it all together!
