HUNTER_FINAL 4.35.30 PM

Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire.

Hunter

I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…

Sailor

I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

The Hunter by LJ Shen–Review

The Hunter, wow. The Hunter was immediately on my radar when I saw the early blurb. A new world called The Boston Belles, which included characters from previous books, such as Hunter Fitzpatrick himself, Troy Brennan, and Sparrow. Sign me up please!

Hunter Fitzpatrick is an enigma, an anomaly. Hunter is known as the ‘Royal Pipelines notorious playboy.’ Unfortunately for most he never downplayed all rumors circulating. It took one feisty redhead to scratch the surface and what she found was more than how he saw himself. Hunter is a dirty talking, flirting alpha a-hole. He is also caring, smart, witty, lacked focus and was lost.

Sailor Brennan could also be described as an enigma and an anomaly, just slightly different. She is a quiet girl, an archer with her sights aimed at the Olympics and a nerd. She lived for those quiet times all to herself but let’s not forget who her father is. Troy Brennan. When pushed, she has that fire, will not back down and can bust your balls in 0.3 seconds flat. I love Sailor. She is/has the potential to be, a kick a** lead. Despite having a solid goal in life, she is also lost and missing something. So, has Hunter found his next prey? I think both find the answer surprising.

I believe LJ Shen has just hit another milestone with her new, ‘Boston Belles’ series. Every character played their part beautifully in expanding our eyes to the world of a ‘reputable businessman’ to the 1% upper crust echelon. Hunter and Sailor together are electric together with fireworks that exuded from the pages.

I am saddened that Hunter and Sailor’s story has come to ‘The End’, although, there is a plethora of other book potentials Cillian, Sam, maybe even the Penrose sisters. I am in love and cannot wait for more, Boston’s Belles.

Blowback by Monica James–Review

The Monsters Within Duet deserves something special to be said about it. Quick refresher, I absolutely loved, adored and salivated for Bullseye. Ms. James wrote something exceptional with book one. So, the question is, ‘How do you follow up with such perfection of Bullseye?’ Simple. You write a kick*ss, soul encompassing, gut twisting, emotionally sucking book two. Welcome to Blowback.

Now, Blowback picks up right where it left off in Bullseye. The intensity, passion and of course, the dark and twisted all remain. Monica did a fantastic job of engulfing you into the dark, seedy, twisted underground of Detroit. It was easy to not only feel as if you were there, but to visualize the story happening around you almost as if you were experiencing everything in Virtual Reality.

Bull and Tiger are an intriguing pair of emotionally stunted individuals who have had to learn hard life lessons and most importantly, a human representation of yin yang. Each have issues, but one thing they do know is that a certain calm flows through them when they are together. They are electric and able to soar when they are together, yet when apart they fall flat and are left to keep the demons at bay the only way they know how. Bull and Tiger not only make an insane coupling, but they are the piece missing to make each other whole (with a little Fluffball thrown in😉).

Bull…Bull is still this fierce mastermind, enigmatic, anti-hero with thoughts of revenge. Lily is caring, kind and sees the best in people. She receives an awakening of sorts and then we get to see Tiger Lily at her fiercest. The things that she would do for the ones she loves made her strong, fierce and a true kick*ss heroine. I loved to see the expansion of her personality and the fierce heart she has inside.

Although, non-conventional, their love, friendship and relationship are what one dreams about. Who needs Prince Charming when you have the Black Knight riding through town to save not only his one true love, but the person who saved him?

I am completely addicted to Monica James and her writing style. Her heroes are broken yet fierce. The heroines seem to evolve and find themselves. Tiger completely fit the bill with her rough and tough tenacity, sweet nature and finally, her ferociousness. Bull and Tiger will be a couple that will not leave my mind very soon. I’ve laughed, cried, screamed, and pulled a tantrum having to step away from my kindle. Yet, overall, though, I loved. I loved fiercely with a consistent storyline, all plot holes and questions answered, characters that were so much more than one-dimensional and most importantly, I loved Bull, Tiger and Jordy. These characters will not leave my psyche for an exceptionally long time!! Congratulations, Ms. James, on a fabulous book!!

IOU by Kristy Marie–Review

IMG_7901

I fell hard for Kristy Marie, her writing and the characters in her Commandeer in Briefs series. I truly did not think I could love main characters more than Theo/Anniston, or the bromance of Theo/Gage. She proved me wrong. I am in serious love with Maverick and Ainsley and their band of side characters.

Ainsley is the girl that you want to be friends with. I think we all could find some aspect of her character that would resonate within ourselves. She is fun, quirky, a ‘button pusher’ unintentionally, plucky and strong willed. Despite all these positive characteristics, she is a hot mess. This will lead to many ‘adventures’ with Ainsley and you will be laughing so hard at her antics your ribs will hurt in the morning.

Maverick. It is hard to say his name without wanting to sigh. Maverick is moody, broody, his name alone makes people quiver (and not in a good way sometimes😏). Despite his rough, stony and cold-hearted outward appearance, he is something else entirely underneath and it only takes one tenacious girl to start poking holes in his façade.

Now, take their individual characteristics and combine them. What do you have? Maverick and Ainsley’s relationship, which will never be boring, always hilarious and my new favorite couple of Kristy Marie’s. IOU is written so entirely well that it will have you feeling the feels. Personally, I cannot help but not looking at the cover and breaking out in a smile. It is fun, refreshing, hilarious, powerful and enduring. I loved every little thing about IOU and am so happy to see Kristy Marie spread her wings and try something new. Well done, Kristy, well done!!

PS…One side character I must mention is Lawrence!! He is downright lovable!!

The Secrets We Hide–Review

I read, ‘The Lies We Tell’ and was INSTANTLY hooked. I could not WAIT to get The Secrets We Hide in my hot little hands. Needless to say, when I did, I was instantly sucked into my own little vortex where the real world no longer seemed to exist.
star wars space GIF

You may or may not remember at the end of TLWT, but Becca left us on a cliffy that had me steaming in frustration while desperately pushing for another page. Needless to say, there was no other page, but some serious questions as to what was going to happen next. No spoilers will be given, but I will say I was happy that the momentum from the end of TLWT was carried over to TSWH.

For me as a reader, Ms. Steele put her mark firmly in the author world with a unique storyline, perspective, character development, plot line and solid writing. Remember the vortex from earlier, this was due to her phenomenal writing and ability to create those visuals in your mind. I truly felt like I was the sixth IV (Winter is the fifth).

The boys are still as you may remember them but are ever evolving. Changing their personalities towards certain people/situations. Have no fear the boys you feel in love with, in book 1, are still very much present.

Caiden, the mysterious, broody, head alpha who is the bad boy with locked up emotions and more baggage than a 747. Let me just say that that baggage starts to lessen as the book goes on and it is heartwarming to see him morph from the 100% broody a-hole to this all-out broody a-hole with a softer side.

Cassius is the comedian of the group. He is the cocky, comedic, playboy that has all the women swooning. I love him for his personality, heart and humor.

Zayde (insert sigh). Zayde is the be all end all of scary AF characters, but there is something about him that makes him so enduring. He is bad-tempered, mean, dark and methodical. Yet, for some reason, I LOVE ZAYDE!

Weston, at least for me, I cannot seem to think his name without getting a little grin on my face. He is the techie of the group who I consider to be silent yet deadly type.

Besides being, the best of friends, what do these four all have in common? A woman named Winter. She has been through so much in her life making her appear broken, but she is strong and has a good heart. With the backing of the IV, Winter is able to figure out the mysteries that fly around them. Winter was able to bring them all together and to another level of friendship.

Now you are all wondering, what about Caiden and Winter? Let’s just say, that their relationship also continued to grow and change. How familiar are you with cross stitch? Caiden and Winter are the threads within the canvas. Keeping strong and fulfilling the picture as well as they could. The brilliant thing about this is that in order to complete your cross-stitch canvas you need more differing threads to fully comprehend the scene. This is what happens between the boys and Winter. They complete her, although her tie is stronger to Caiden, she still fills in with the other three for a solid cohesive unit.

Becca Steele is a master magician with taking all these different plot points and bring them together. You never see what is coming next or where she takes you. She is also a genius when it comes to cliffhangers.

Falcon’s Prey by C. Lymari–Review

Miss Lymari is a new to me author and what a way to Initiate me into her world. I have heard that Falcon’s Prey is her first foray into a dark romance. If this is the case, hello, sign me up for more.

Falcon’s Prey is unlike anything I have read before. It is everything you would want in a dark read. It is wicked, delicious, mysterious, and filled with heart stopping drama and thrills. The overall storyline is incredibly addicting. I completely lost track of time and space and if it was not for my hubs/dogs, I probably would have just kept reading. The plotline that she has mapped out was brilliant!

C. Lymari had a perfect blend of characters. Ren😍, oh Ren, he is a jerk and Ember is truly a bitch, but this is what works for them (besides exterior beauty/hotness) is the combustible nature that they exude. They are both hiding secrets and mix this in with their personalities and you get an explosive couple. Their storyline is somewhat relatable. Am I a spoiled, misunderstood, and selfish diamond princess? No, I am not, but it is the situational and emotional aspects of this book that make it relatable to people (the same goes for Mr. Ren Falcon).

“Ren Falcon wasn’t a great guy–h*ll he wasn’t even a good guy. He was an a**hole, but he was worried about me.”

Now if you are into the ‘sweet, make you feel good romances’, this may not be the book for you, but is you’ve been dying to step into the dark pool, Falcon’s Prey, may be right for you. Overall, I loved every aspect of this book. I was peeved and wanted to throw my kindle, I also wanted to be their personal cheerleader and of course, I thought I was their personal six, but that was only in my mind. Falcon’s Prey is worth every star!!

“Ember Remington was beauty wrapped in sadness and sealed with hatred.”
