Interference (Bases series 1) by Hazel Grace–Review

I don’t believe it’s a big surprise when I say I have a huge crush on Hazel Grace leads; Garrett (An Array Series), Wyatt (Deceived Duet) and now Colson Hayes (Bases Series).
She has an infinity for writing strapping men with looks for days! They are everything a girl wants in a guy, tall, dark, handsome, charismatic, smirk-able, lick-able and downright edible. Although, there is one teeny, tiny thing that could be a drawback. They are downright a-holes and God, help me, I don’t care. I still want them. I’m not sure what that says about me, but, man, I love the guys that are assholes.

Colson Hayes is one of those assholes, he’s an alpha and has a penchant to be a big bully. He and his best friend, Gavin are the top dogs at their school in Fremont, OK. Gavin and Colson have had plans for a long time to reach the MLB together to get out of their small town.

Sawyer Boyd is the girl all the bad guys want (thank you Bowling for Soup for getting this stuck in my head). Sawyer is the new girl in town and her only source of comfort is being a member of the softball team. She is smoking hot and every guy wants to date her, the ‘Alpha A-hole’ included, however, he is a true mixed up high schooler keeping his eyes on the prize (MLB) and doesn’t take the time to analyze his feelings.

Colson and Sawyer are undeniably hot together with chemistry and sexual tension that jumps off the pages. Through the eyes of Colson and Sawyer, we get to experience their lives, both past (ten years prior) and currently. These flashback sequences are written beautifully and flawlessly with a natural flow from one scene to the other.

I am so addicted to this series and can’t wait for the next one. I have found only one thing that I don’t like about this book. It is two words that are written together…’The End’. Worst two words an author could put at the end of their book. I’m telling you this hasn’t stopped me from continuously pushing the next button for more. Sadly, I was left longing for more. So, with this being said, I beg you Hazel Grace, can I have some more? I love you, you evil woman and your wicked vile ways! Do you yourself a favor, check out Interference and then some of her other great reads!!Interference

Sloth by Giana Darling–Review

Giana Darling is one of my favorite authors. I have read a few of her books and loved them, but it wasn’t until I read about Daddy Zeus, that I knew this author was a one-click keeper. Giana has joined up with other authors to be a part of ‘The Elite Seven’. Her contribution is Sloth.

Sloth, aka Rush Dempsey, is not what you would expect him to be. In previous books, he was always the one in the shadows and popped up when you needed him and sometimes when you didn’t realize you needed him, he was there. Rush is so much more than what his moniker states. He is not slow moving or lazy in the slightest. What he is, is intelligent, observant, oozes sexiness and is determined in whatever he is pursuing.

Isabelle is the daughter of the Archbishop. She is in college but is the quintessential ‘church mouse’. She is very modest, demure, pure and holy. One would think, that she would not be Sloth’s type, but Rush is intrigued by her pure innocence. Upon meeting, they are immediately attracted to each other. They are the ying to the yang, the good and bad and the peanut butter to the jelly. They are two souls that are destined for each other. Isabelle doesn’t realize this yet, but she is the passionate powerhouse to bring Rush to his knees and Rush goes willingly. Yes, Isabelle’s halo may be slightly tarnished and the devil on Rush’s shoulder is not present all the time, but these two bring out the best in each other.

We are getting towards the end of the series and things need to start falling into place. Ms. Darling did an incredible job of not only bringing these books together, but also writing a dark romance with two unlikely leads. Giana’s dark romance is on point and doesn’t disappoint and Rush and Isabelle are two developed characters that are perfection together. As always, Giana’s storyline, plot and character development are top notch. Since, we are getting towards the end, she sets up nicely the conflict and the resolution, both within Rush’s story and overall for the series.

I am so addicted to this series, that I don’t know what to do after it’s over. Sloth sucked me in and opened my eyes to the underground world of secret societies. I am still dazed and replaying everything in my mind. Sloth is the story that is full angst, drama, romance (sometimes dirty) and has the lock down on revelations. Seriously, y’all, every question that may have pricked your mind, while reading about our other favorite Elites is brought to light by Giana Darling. Giana has written a wicked world that will leave you breathless and wanting more. She has shown us the true meaning of those we call ‘family’ and who encompasses that word ‘family’. Sloth is the perfect assist to our Grand Finale, Greed!

Share Me by Ker Dukey and K Webster–Review

Before I say anything about the book, let’s take a look at the authors. Hello, it’s Ker and Kristi!! This is a power duo like never before. When these two amazing ladies put their heads together, you know it’s going to be golden.

Share Me is a reverse harem book, unlike any other. I normally have an aversion to reverse harem/harem books. Unfortunately, I’ve read too many that are focused on the dirty nasty, almost comedic storyline and not so much on quality. I can’t forget that they heroine is usually an innocent and pure virgin. I have absolutely nothing against dirty, nasty sex, hello this duo usually gives us plenty of that, but their story differs. Share Me is more than the nasty, there is a true storyline with emotions, feelings, intrigue and love. Oh my gosh, so much love, it was beautiful to see.

Clove is a politician’s daughter who has hopes of reaching 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Unfortunately, while he has lofty aspirations and is busy trying to achieve them, he is neglecting his daughter more and more. At a vulnerable age, Clove’s mother passes away. To keep her safe while he’s not around, he hires her own bodyguards (who also sometimes protect him). An unforeseeable incident happens, and all go into uber protective bodyguards. Per her father’s request, she is whisked away to a safe house with her men. Things may never be the same.

Clove and the boys hunker down in a small one-bedroom hunting cabin. In this elevated, hyper vigilant, close packed alpha situation lines are crossed. Webster and Dukey increase the hot, dirty and filthy to a new level. Clove is a champ. She is a strong woman, despite her young age, and knows what she wants…her men. If you take the sex out of it for a minute, it was beautiful to watch this fivesome interact with each other like they’ve been doing it forever.

I would happily recommend this book to anyone. It is a solid and well thought out reverse harem storyline without the cheese/over the top factor. Get ready, y’all, you’ll want to keep your fan handy while reading this one!!

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Bad Saint by Monica James–Review

I am shook, rekt and flabbergasted! I am sitting on pins and needles at the edge of my seat crying like I lost my dang-tooting mind!! I am feeling a mess of emotions (disgust, hate, love, relieved, hopeful, uncomfortable, worried and proud among others)! Bad Saint encompassed unfathomable, real emotional situations. I felt as if I was right there with them along for the ride. Bad Saint is deep, tortuous, provocative, sexually frustrating, angsty, dramatic and full of lies and subterfuge.

Growing up, Willow Shaw is the apple of her father’s eye. He is a Baptist minister and dotes on his family until tragedy strikes. Willow’s one source of love and comfort, her father, passes away while she is young. You may ask about her mother, but she is of little help as she is sinking into a world of despair and is non-existent. An incident occurs at home, that enlightens Willow as to what her world has turned into.

“’Your looks are used for evil’…my mom’s words echo loudly within.”

Longing to start a new life and get away from the past, she moves to LA. She eventually lands on her feet and becomes a high in-demand model. It’s while doing a show, she falls for the love of her life, gets married and is off to her dream, idyllic honeymoon. Well, the fates are not in her favor. When thinking of that picturesque location, she never imagined that she would be kidnapped, held captive and tied up.

“I am her captor. And she is my slave.”

Willow doesn’t realize the strength that lies within her. She taps into this strength when she thinks of her father. She is the one of the strongest heroines I have read about. It was immensely satisfying as a reader to see her emerge from her world of captivity into a woman of strength, like a butterfly emerging from their cocoon.

Saint Hennessy…oh dear lord…Saint Hennessy. He is NOT what Willow (nor I) expected. He is the perfect anti-hero.

“I am not your knight in shining armor. Stop trying to see something that isn’t there!”

Here is what I will say about Saint. He’s a tortured, damaged and a pissed off soul who will do what he needs to do to get what he wants. As a character, he is exquisite. His aura just jumps off the pages and will make you fall in love with him. Beware, I warned you! 🖤 I, absolutely, adore Saint. To see his own struggle and evolution will make you think that this captor isn’t so bad.

“She isn’t what I was expecting. She is strong-willed and stubborn. I have no other choice but to break her.”

I will freely admit, that I was that quintessential reader who was desperately hitting my kindle for the next page. I wanted more and there wasn’t anymore. Bad Saint ends with a cliffhanger (of sorts). Does it answer all your questions? No. Does it tie up Bad Saint with a tidy, red bow? No, but it does round it off nicely. I am sitting here a couple days later and I’m still in ‘book hangover’ territory. I’m chomping at the bit to get more from these two. Ms. James is a new to me author and now a lifelong reader. Her words are exquisite, and the storytelling is awe-inspiring, despite its dark nature. Monica James, thank you for writing such a book that despite its content, it is thought-provoking and full of emotional overload!!

Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills–Review

Wow!! OMG!! I’m flabbergasted!! I just hope I can convey all that I’m feeling with this book. Ilsa Madden Mills not only has the magic touch with her books, but she is a true storyteller. I was saddened to hit ‘The End’. I wanted more with this enduring, hilarious and loving cast of characters. Not to mention, imagining Zack as the cover model!IMG_0874

On paper, Boyfriend Bargain is a New Adult College Sports Romance, however, once you turn the page, you soon realize that BB is more than that. We have two seniors in college, Zack Morgan and Sugar Rae Ryan, both destined for greatness, neither working any less than the other, but one from the affluent side and the other from the trailer park. (Think you might have it figured out? I bet you don’t!)

Zack Morgan, larger than life, real -life Thor. Take that phrase, ‘Big Man on Campus/BMOC’ and throw it out the window. Zack not only has the campus, he has the city and the surrounding general area worshiping at his feet. Pressure, much? Hawthorne University is in Sparrow Lake, MN where the state is a big-time hockey state. Zack is on his way to the NHL but has elected to finish his degree and accomplish a few other items on his personal ‘to-do’ list before graduation.

Sugar (gosh I love that name for a girl from the south), is an introverted, quirky, awkward and funny character. She has ended up on the losing end of the privileged stick. For the longest time, it has been her and her mother, but then tragedy strikes, and she finds herself moving to Minnesota to live with Mara. Mara is the closest thing to family now. She finds herself at Hawthorne University and through misguided notions finds herself a pre-law student.

Ilsa has written a band of characters that are so relatable and down to earth, despite everything going on in their lives. Zack, oh man, Zack is such a lovable character. There is so much depth to him, that I felt like I was on a treasure hunt with each layer removed.

Sugar is a breath of fresh of air. She is down to earth, humble, yet feisty. Wow! I LOVED the banter between her and Z. I was witnessing two souls who had found their perfect match, yet, wouldn’t fess up and say, ‘yep, were perfect for each other’. Independently and together, they had a mound of stuff to get through to even think about them as a couple, but let’s not forget that this started as a fake relationship. Sugar thought she needed Zack for a certain reason. Despite having written up a very legal and binding contract 😉, all things must evolve and fake soon turns into what?

While reading, I never felt as though I was an outsider reading a book. I felt as if I was part of the inner circle and was witnessing these events first hand. The emotions were real and roller coaster in feeling. The ‘intimate’ moments were HOT, SIZZLING and STEAMY. The writing, character development and plot were exquisite. It’s true that Boyfriend Bargain is based around a sports romance, but I urge you to try it, because it is so much more!! I, without hesitation, highly recommend you to read about Zack and Sugar!!IMG_0872

Pretty Reckless by LJ Shen

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM.jpg

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.
