Brutal Empire by C Lymari–Review

I have been longing for Bastian’s book and it’s FINALLY HERE! I needed to see what made this secretive guy tick.
Brutal Empire is the next book in the Sekten series featuring Bas and Cam. This book is twisted, dark, angsty, and full of precarious situations. Despite having triggers from a lifetime of hell, Cam is refreshing. Her motto and mindset are based on revenge. This is something that she and Bas have in common, however, no matter how charming he is, Bas is full of secrets.
Claudia has written two fantastic characters destined for each other, yet there is this ending where it will blow your mind. I MUST HAVE MORE!!

“She was an angel craving chaos, He was a demon seeking peace.”

The Sculptor by Kristy Marie–Review

I just knew I was going to love The Sculptor, given it was about a Potter brother who also happened to be written by a unicorn author of mine. What I didn’t expect was how much this whole family would steal my heart. Duke and Ramsey not only tore my heart apart, but Kristy Marie eviscerated it one keystroke at a time.

Duke and Ramsey were a little more than childhood sweethearts, they were soulmates, even at the tender age of 18. They had that once-in-a-lifetime, never going to find another, epically strong first love—the kind of love a person could only wish for. Unfortunately, circumstances tore them apart, only to be reunited years later.

What comes next is the whole gamut of emotions. This emotional roller coaster had me fully invested from laughter, tears, immense tears, anger, a couple of snorts, hope, and more. Kristy Marie has some amazing books, but with this series, she has elevated her game, yet again. I am so excited and ready for the last book of this series!

Blurb:

My name is Rev.

I like long walks on the beach.

A neat scotch.

And I like stealing from rich losers who have no idea the town’s Big Bad Wolf screwed their wives six ways to Sunday.

Such a scandal, indeed.

I have one end goal—to get out of this town.

I’m a loner. And that’s by choice.

People aren’t really my thing. That is…until I meet her. The little firecracker who sets more than my soul on fire.

No one has ever stuck around.

But Darcie is different. She seems to be as broken as me, and when our worlds collide, nothing but trouble looms.

Watch out, baby…down the rabbit hole we go.

Darling Dmitri by Rose Croft–Review

My Darling Dmitri,

You have snuck in under my radar and confiscated my heart, soul, and being. Your filthy words, unwanted touch, and overall aggressive and protective nature are almost too much (Hint: almost, but not entirely. I will not be throwing out my safe word!)

I wholeheartedly approve of grey sweatpants, no shirts (yours, not mine), working out, hot saunas and having your guy friends over. But this is getting ahead of myself. Do you remember the days when Daddy Arty told you to, ‘Make her feel welcome. Safe. Protected. You are now like her older brother.’ Yep, me neither. Good, now that that is settled, let’s get back to us!

Talk soon, my grumpy, grouchy, alpha Russian!
Checkmate,
Sue (the original zaychik)
—————————————-
Rose Croft has elevated her writing to a whole other level with Darling Dmitri. This is the third book in the Boys on the Hill series. Let me just say, I fell for Roman and his growly nature, while Nicholas sucked me in with all the feels, but it is Dmitri who has put me under a spell.

This book introduces us to Dmitri and Sorina. It is full of angst, it is forbidden, taboo, and has an alpha who will put ALL OTHER ALPHAS to shame. Sorina is a strong and feisty character who can give as good as she gets. Dmitri is Dmitri. A completely unapologetic, grumpy, Russian male, who excels in football.

The interaction between the two of them is explosive, electric, and spicy. There is witty banter, needling between friends, immense angst, and emotions on overload. It is safe to say that Dmitri and Sorina are my new favorite couple and Rose’s best book yet. I am so excited to read about Axel and his troubles. I have a feeling it is going to be good!!

Beautiful Graves by LJ Shen–Review

One woman with two different kinds of love. Which would you choose if you had to choose? Your soulmate or the love of your life? Enter Everlynne, Joe, and Dom.

LJ has written a two-part love triangle evolving around these three with Ever being the primary catalyst. Beautiful Graves is exquisitely written, excruciatingly gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, and full of angst, Angst, and ANGST!

“I loved you, Ever Lawson. But I want you to know, you’re the worst thing that’s ever f*g happened to me.”

There was so much heaviness and feelings of sorrow that was prevalent throughout, mainly from Ever herself. She is the girl with unique dreams and loves that doesn’t quite fit in. To counterbalance her morose being are a couple great secondary characters that fill the book and situations with moments of levity.

What have we learned? Love is messy and life isn’t perfect. Yet, through these three we find the normalcy of insecurities and growing pains of teenagers through their mid-twenties. It was raw, passion-filled, mistake driven, and yet through it all imperfectly perfect.
