Ruthless Knight by A. Jade–Review

Reading Cruel Prince, I thought I was done for. I fell hardcore for the Royal Hearts family, including Cole Covington. The tortured, black hearted twin with nothing but malice in him. I couldn’t wait to dig into his book to see what made him tick.

Ruthless Knight did not disappoint. Within her 100 chapters, A. Jade wrote a web of feelings, emotions, storylines, and flashbacks to make a grown woman cry. I couldn’t help but feel my own heart breaking while reading about Cole and Sawyer.

Sawyer Church, the Bible thumper at RHA. Despite trying to be a nobody and blend into the walls, you couldn’t help but notice her. She also is tortured, unloved, unwanted, and compared to her ‘perfect’ sister. For some reason, she can see through Cole to the good that is hidden deep down. This, of course, unsettles Cole, so he does what most teenagers would, he picks on her.

When all is said and done and the book is completed, this was a beautiful story of acceptance, love, and forgiveness. However, to get to ‘The End’, Ms. Jade took us through some tough topics and situations that will leave you tearing up for days. It’s hard not to love all characters written within this book. They are family. One of these family members that I am anxious to read about is Bianca. I want to know her story and what makes Baby Covington the spoiled, bitchy, and devious princess that she is!!

Siren by Hazel Grace–Review

“You might want to keep your distance, Blood,”…’It’s not a smart idea for you to get too close to me.”

Siren is a fantastic, enchanting and dark re-telling of The Little Mermaid. Take everything you know about Ariel and chuck it out the window. Davina, she is the star of this book, along with her sisters, Dagen, and Tobias. I am addicted and want more!!!

There were so many incredible moments in this book. The relationship and banter between Davina and the other Princesses of Lacuna is so funny and a completely sister thing to do. The other characters are written so well, they pop off the screen and it’s easy to visualize what is happening as you read it.

Hazel Grace continues to surprise me with her books. She makes me long for more and I don’t know how she does it, but she does. She has made me laugh, cry, flat out swoon, and had complete emotional annihilation. Yet, I still come back for more.

Pick up Siren and continue with the rest of the ‘Sinister Fairytale Collections’ series. You won’t be disappointed!!

Gabriel’s Promise by Sylvain Reynard–review

Professor Gabriel Emerson is akin to coming home. Imagine your favorite slippers, leggings or blanket, that feeling of contentment is one that washed over me as I started reading. I was enthralled and completely sucked into Gabriel and Julia’s previous books, specifically, books one and two.
Professor Emerson is my OG professor to kick off my love of Professor-Student genres. I loved seeing a different side of Gabriel, especially after the birth of their daughter, Clare. So attentive, loving and protective. Just what his girls need.
Now that Clare is in the picture, one would hope that Gabriel and Julia have an easy breezy future. Unfortunately, they are tested and must face challenges that will test them both. Ms. Reynard packed a full storyline with issues, enemies, and confrontations between beginning and end. Some may have been true storyline issues, while others felt like ‘fluff’ and didn’t really need to be there.
Despite all this, Sylvain’s writing is wonderful. If you have read the previous books, pick this up on January 7th and see what the Emerson’s are up too!

As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.

 

 

 

I was a good girl.
Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion.
When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.
The Darkland is mine.
And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

Madness by Kailee Reese Samuels–Review

Madness is one thing that you will feel while reading this book. I have never read a book of Kailee’s before and this was one heck of an initiation. I finished a couple days ago and I’m still trying to make sense of my feelings, this book, and this author. Kailee is either a genius at writing about madness so you can’t follow along or a MASTER at evoking more than feelings while reading a book and making you think you are mad as well.

Most people know the story of Alice in Wonderland and the curious, daydreaming girl who is often giving herself advice. Well, I hate to say that Madness is more than an adult version of this. Kailee’s version is a psychological trip that has themes of fantasy, dystopia, and dark, dark romance. This is NOT you’re everyday tale of Alice in Wonderland. Going back to Kailee’s writing, I sat for a few days, seriously wondering if I was going mad. To me, it didn’t make sense. It was only while reading the ending that the lightbulbs seemed to go on. Now, is that scattered writing or phenomenal storytelling? Honesty here, I think it was genius writing by Kailee Reese Samuels. I am not a dystopian reader, so this part of the story hung me up a bit, so along with confusion, I felt that I was feeling what Lys was going through.

The only knock I have on Madness is that it was a little hard to follow along. Due to her writing style, it felt a little disconnected and I had to go back and re-read sections which affected the flow of the overall book.

If you like dark (and I mean super dark) romance reads, Madness is one that you should take a chance on. Kailee Reese Samuels wrote one heck of a head scratcher to which she ties it up in a nice little bow at the end.

Insolent by Cynthia A. Rodriguez–Review

So, there are a few things you should know going into this book. It’s supposed to be a dark re-telling of Merida, but the heroine here is Moira and it’s actually placed in present time. Now, knowing these two things, let’s begin.

Cynthia is a new to me author. Her writing is fantastic, despite not really getting any Moira vibes (which is ok with me). She can suck you into this mystical present time world that is full of darkness and mysteries and give you a dark mythical feeling story.

Moira is a heroine that has not been raised in a loving home. Her horrible family has done some unspeakable things to her. She is practicing her archery, when she comes across a dark and mysterious man. Sol and Moira despite the atrocities that life has thrown them, find comfort in each other. I loved that as the story progressed, Moira became stronger individual.

Insolent is full of twists and turns. It is best to go into Insolent with no pre-determined thoughts or ideas and just let Cynthia take you on this incredible, ethereal-like journey.
