Twisted Review

Title: Twisted

Author: Callie Hart

This is the fifth book in the Blood and Roses series, they do need reading in order.

I’m so glad I can read these all in one go, anyone reading as she published must have been pulling their hair out lol

Another cliffhanger but this is the last one because there is only one more book to go! I’m normally not a big fan of cliffhangers but I’m finding this is okay because I already have the next one, I like that each book breaks at a good point. Theres plenty wrapped up already in this story but once again when you think everything is falling in to place it all goes back out the window.

I still love Zeth, he’s still possessive and demanding and grumpy and all of the amazing things that I loved about him from the start. But there’s a little softness creeping in there, there is something happening, changing, he is changing. Its really great to see!

I’m heading in for the end because I really can’t wait!

Fallen Review

Title: Fallen

Author: Callie Hart

This is the fourth of the Blood and Roses series and they do need reading in order.

Well Fallen is certainly the right title for this one, what a crazy novella! This is really the central part of the story, all sorts of crazy things are going on.

I liked the way we were able to watch what went on at the gas station and then come back to it again at a later point from another angle. That all really fell in to place beautifully. I want to know more about what’s going on with Alexis and this Lowell character.

There are so many things still up in the air and a long way to go yet. I’m loving how its working out with Zeth and Sloane and I’m hiking Lacey steps up soon because if Zeth finds out from someone else its not gonna be pretty!

Heading back in!

Burn Review

Title: Burn

Author: Callie Hart

This is the third in the blood and roses series, they do need reading in order.

Wow, what a crazy episode of this series! So much has happened I don’t even know where to start. I’m loving Michael. I know, I know, hes been a bit not right keeping things from Zeth but hes humbug and quiet and he knows how to wind him up and when to relax back. Hes great!

I am in no way surprised that things havent exactly gone to plan, I’m not sure there even was a plan in the first place. It seems no matter what happens, theres a hiccup.

The romance side of things is coming on nicely though. They’re both starting to see this for something deeper and they are absolutely beginning to fall. Zeth is possessive and lethal, a combination you definitely want on your side and not against you. And Sloane is starting to get confidence in herself and how he feels about her. They say actions speak louder than words and Zee is definitely a man of few words.

I cant wait to see what happens with the sisters so I’m going in to the next one!

Fracture Review

Title: Fracture

Author: Callie Hart

This is the second in the hr Blood and Roses series.

I didnt realise this was a series of novellas but this was another hot little instalment. I bought these as the set at some point a while ago and they’ve been sat on my kindle waiting for a rainy day. Well, that day has arrived and I’m so glad!

The story is starting to get complicated and I’m losing where I am with what’s going on with Charlie and Zeth a little bit. Because there are so many other factors going on here with Lacey and Pippa and with going for Alexis. There are lots of gang names that I’m losing hold of lol

But I’m really enjoying it. I like the dynamic between Lacey and Sloan, I love that they’re on this mission together now. When Lacey needed a person Sloan was able to stand up and be there for her and now in her own way Lacey is returning the favour. I really like the strong women in this book, no wilting wallflower over here.

And Zeth, oh the hot masculine alpha male is going all crazy over himself and I love it. In to the next book I go!

Deviant Review

Title: Deviant

Author: Callie Hart

This is the first book in the Blood and Roses series.

Okay so how have I managed to go on for so long without reading this series? Zeth has popped up in a couple of other stories I’ve read by Callie and hes always been a pretty intense and intriguing character and that holds through in this book too!

This book is HOT, like hot hot hot, really really hot. Zeth is powerful and commanding and he takes no prisoners. The chemistry between him and Sloane is practically jumping off the pages at you. We learn some in this story, about him and his history but not much and I can’t wait to dive in and see what else is in the rest of the series.

Sloane, I mean, wow, what a way to start a book. Not only is it sexy as hell, but theres depth and past to her, something is eating her up inside and we still need more of the details.

This book is a fantastic taster, it literally just whets your appetite for the next book. I’m so glad the series is complete and I can head straight in!

Old Fashioned Review

Title: Old Fashioned

Author: Kandi Steiner

This is the fourth book in the Becker Boys series, they should be read in order starting with On The Rocks.

I think I’ve got a new favourite. Logan has been my favourite brother so far, but Jordan is up there with him too.

The silent brooding type, we havent seen a great deal of Jordan through the other books. He’s been about, of course, quietly available in the background but now it’s his time to shine. And he sure is swoon worthy and shining away!

The eldest brother, the one who pulled everyone together when their lives fell apart 10 years ago, the stoic rock of the family. What a beautiful story he has!

And how perfect is Sydney for him, shes sweet and kind but sassy and strong. Shes lived through so much and yet is still forging forward with her life. I really liked that we didnt go in to the nitty gritty of her past, there was enough infomation to inform the story without us dragging through the history. There is more than enough emotion throughout the story, it didnt need that in too.

The sassy new girl with well hidden low self esteem, with fear for herself and her daughter. She’s brought out of her shell by a man who challenges her and fascinates her in equal measure. She draws him out of his comfortable life and infuriates him as much as she brings him to life. They are a fantastic match up and the dynamic between them is great.

There is so much to get through story wise in this book but that doesn’t mean that it is low on the Romance. Jordan and Sydney are front and foremost and their tale is beautiful and tragic all at the same time, such highs tempered by the lows. Add in all the extra stuff with bkth their pasts and the work dynamic and things get a little crazy in there for a hot minute.

This story resonated with me on so many levels, her becoming a mum, being the eldest sibling, surviving through trauma. I felt her fear and her connection and yet I couldn’t bare to put it down, page after page I needed to see them through.

This was a really fantastic ending to the series, amazingly tied up and put together. Definitely a series to read and love!

Elijah Review

Title: Elijah

Author: Nikki Ashton

This is the first book in this series so you can head straight in without having to read anything else!

I love this cover, it’s so intense and broody, just like the guy it represents. Eli was great. He was a proper fella, down to earth, making stupid mistakes and not listening to his friends and family. You know, all the usual stuff that guys do when they’re being dumb.

Amy is pretty cool too and she got there in the end. I like the way their first love story is intertwined with their current love story. The build up to the finale is fantastic, I was worrying about what kind of an end we were gonna have but I needn’t have worried 🙂

I kind if had an inkling there was gonna be a tricky one thrown in there for me and there was. It was raw and it was real, it wasnt my experience but it was handled well and with tact.

A great read and I’ll be heading in for Sam’s book shortly!

In Fury Lies Mischief Review

Title: In Fury Lies Mischief

Author: Amo Jones

This is the second in the Midnight Mayhem series and they do need reading in order.

This is crazy, f*cked up, confusing dark romance written in the way only Amo Jones can. I have been a follower from the beginning and it is absolutely amazing to have been able to see the progression in this author to this point. She has found her style and her voice, and let me tell you, its bloody beautiful.

I’m a bit strange with series’. I find that I often like the second book more than the first. I dunno, maybe they have time to build more through the first book or theres less scene setting because so much has already been laid down. I dunno, anyway, I often find the second book is better than the first. But I knew, that Kill wasnt it for me.

Now, dont get me wrong, I love the writing and the story telling, this is one absolutely amazing ride that you will not want to get off! The Trickster is hot, like really really hot, and the chemistry is palpable. You can practically feel the sexual tension pouring from the pages as you read the story.

I don’t want to give away anything for those who haven’t read yet but there felt to be similarities with other stories and towards the end it got too wrapped up in itself. There were some tricky subjects handled with the usual Amo Jones flair and some beautiful still moments within the chaos.

All in all, a brilliantly done story that I iist didnt gel with completely.

Do You Do Extras Review

Title: Do You Do Extras

Author: Nikki Ashton

I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki at a book signing last year and came away with a couple of books that had caught my eye, despite having not read them. Well, I finally got round to reading this one and I can’t believe I waited so long!

There are some absolutely hilarious, completely laugh out loud and frighten the dog moments in this book. Interspersed beautifully throughout some quite heavy moments.

There are some amazing side characters in this book! Marcia; the over the top manager. She reminds me of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. And Barnaby, Beth and Poppy, the guiding hands throughout. All played amazing roles!

I love that Phoebe just doesn’t give a toss, she’s the typical northern bird in some ways. Shes only half bothered that he’s the star, she’s still not gonna take any rubbish off him. She speaks first and then thinks after, the d!ck moment haha and has absolutely no filter. Shes great!

D!ck, as he is affectionately known, was also fab. Despite being a bit of a grumpuss at first I quickly warmed to his quirky way and with Barnaby there to temper him it was a match made in heaven.

What a great story!
