They say most people meet the person they will marry while in high school. Balancing one another perfectly, Holly Ryan and Declan James were together through most of college—until their relationship blew up, leaving Declan with more questions than answers.

For the past two years, Declan has tried everything he can think of to earn Holly’s forgiveness, but even if he manages to help her let go of the past and give them another chance at happiness, she still has a secret. Not to mention, she can’t get over the revolving door of women he seems to have coming in and out of his apartment.

Declan is desperate to prove to Holly she’s the one for him and isn’t above using his celebrity status or enlisting the help of their friends to win her back.

All’s fair in love and war, right?

One deserted island.

When decent people do bad things,

Review

I generously received this ARC from Foreword PR & Marketing in exchange for an honest review…

Being the ultimate COVER WH*RE that I am, this cover is what initally drew me in, but it was the synopsis that had me hook, line and sinker! Instantly I knew that I had to get my hands on this story and boy am I glad that I did! This is the kind of story that you don’t know what to expect and those are the books that always end up being my favorites. I like the surprise and adventure that I discover around every corner or in this case every chapter.

Redemption Island is essentially an experiment…it is about life, adventure and of course the chance for redemption, a chance to right your wrongs and a place to accept the consequences of your sentence. The premise of this story is intriguing and will keep readers on their toes from beginning to end. I loved the whole idea behind this duet and I cannot wait to get my hands on part 2 so that I can discover just how beneficial this experiment of redemption will hold for our two convicted souls.

HEATHENS by Amanda Richardson
Series: Heathens Duet #1 – Standalone
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 14, 2017
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

Paris is home to runaways and lost souls, romantics and artists. A lover’s paradise. For Lilith Damewood, Paris is tainted, tarnished, corroded. Trying to claw her way out of her dark memories, she channels her vitriol into her photography.

Salem Tempest is a seminary student entrusted with the souls of Notre Dame de Paris—even the dark ones. When an unlikely friendship forms between the two of them, and a revelation shakes them both to their core, Lily and Salem find themselves connected in powerful and unexpected ways.

Lily risks his ruin—and her own.

After all, even holy men can fall. And salvation may be closer than they realize.

HEATHENS is a dark romance that connects five souls in a web of choice, sin, revenge, and redemption. It may be considered blasphemous to some. It is intended for mature readers.

HEATHENS is book 1 in the HEATHENS duet. BELIEVERS, book 2, will be releasing early 2018. Both books can be read as a standalone.

Review

I generously received this ARC from Foreword PR in exchange for an honest review…

OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS! <— YES I JUST SAID THAT! I have only recently discovered Amanda Richardson during an author takeover a few months ago so HEATHENS happens to be my very first read of hers and what an incredible introduction into her beautifully poetic and captivating writing style. This is hands down one of those kind of stories that will capture your soul and hold on tight until you’re left with your head reeling and your heart beating outta your chest. Trust me. I finished this story a couple of days ago and my heart is still reeling from this dark romance filled with choices, sin, revenge, and the ultimate redemption.

These five lost and twisted souls have some of the best character development I have read in such a long time. Lilith Damewood and Salem Tempest have the kind of chemistry that all romance readers crave and I couldn’t help but fall in love with their story – past, present and future. I devoured their story every free moment I had because once you see the desire between these two you won’t be able to put it down.

I cannot wait until BELIEVERS to see another couple (Evelyn and Benedict) get their HEA (at least I hope that will be the case)!

Review

Where to begin? That is the question I’ve been asking myself for several weeks since I finished reading this phenomenally captivating debut novel from the extraordinarily talented LK Farlow! I absolutely adored every single aspect of this sweet southern romance that gave me all the warm and fuzzies while reading it! I cannot believe that this is the author’s debut novel due to the fact that it is so well written and her character development is on point! You’ve got those characters that you instantly fall in love with and then of course you’ve got those characters that you instantly hate. No two characters are alike and even those with minor roles shine through during their scenes.

Myla Rose McGraw is just twenty years old and yet she has already been through so much pain and loss, yet she is one of the strongest characters I’ve met in sometime. Even when she finds out that she is pregnant and her jerk of an ex-boyfriend refuses to have anything to do with the child, she is strong and learns that not everyone is as they seem. Enter in Cash Carson, a man in his mid-to-late 20’s who has just discovered that his happy relationship of years was all a sham. How can two broken souls come together when they’ve both been hurt time after time? To find out what happens pick up your copy of Coming Up Roses, the first standalone book in LK Farlow’s debut series – Southern Roots!

Traditions are important. Especially in the South.

It doesn’t matter how much hazing she has to endure from Laird Bronson, with his narrowed green eyes and arrogant smirk. She wants that damn spot, and she’s more than good enough to earn it.

She expects there to be tension. Even friction.

But not sparks hot enough to burn the entire campus down.

Review

I generously received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review…

Holy FREAKING moly! I cannot believe that this was my first Stacy Kestwick read, but I can confidently tell you all that it most certainly will not be my last. Right from the first chapter I was hooked and couldn’t wait to dive into this completely original story. Of course this had to be one of the busiest weeks of my life so I had to very patiently (okay not so patiently) wait to finish this story, but let me just tell you that this is hands down one of those stories completely worth the wait.

You cannot help but instantly fall in love with both our hero, Laird Bronson, and our heroine, Reese Holland. These two are one of my all-time favorite book couples (I know I say that a lot, but they have definitely reached my top 5) because they have that perfect amount of chemistry that leaves you all hot and bothered! I couldn’t help but cheer for them every step of the way and it is amazing just how intertwined their lives really are. At times this story had me laughing my a** off and then suddenly I had tears streaming down my face. This is one of those reads that will leave you with an abundance of feelings – both happy and sad.

If you are on the search for a story action packed with an amazing drumline, a whole lot of hazing and a ton of excited moments then pick up your copy of Drumline by Stacy Kestwick today!

Excerpt 

He devoured me.

Being eaten alive had never felt so good. His lips.

His hands. His heat. My entire being was overwhelmed by him finally, finally touching me.

The kiss started hard, desperate, the inevitable conclusion to the tension that had been building between us for two weeks. With my eyes closed and my breasts flattened against the wall of his chest, I gave into it, surrendered to the moment. My mouth clung to his as he tilted my head to the side, changing the angle to deepen the contact.

His hands moved over me restlessly, hungrily, skimming down my back on the way to my ass, then back up my sides to frame my face, his fingers leaving a trail of heat behind on every inch of skin he claimed for himself. I pulled at his shirt while he pushed me against the solidness of the door. My heart tripped over itself in its race to keep up. Muffled sounds came from both of us, vibrating in our throats but not escaping our lips because we hadn’t even parted for a breath yet.

Who needed fucking air when Laird Bronson was kissing them? Not me.

His lips were somehow firm and soft at the same time as he slanted them over me again and again. It was like being called up to the major league from the minors. Nothing in my past compared. I shivered from the intensity of it, from the innate authority of his mouth as he consumed me. Like I was made to bend to him, as inevitable as the moon ceding to the sun.

I lifted on my tiptoes to get closer, one of my hands snaking up to tangle in his dark hair. The strands were barely long enough at the top to grip, and when I gave them a tug, he rolled his hips against me, showing me just how much he liked it. I moaned and felt an answering wetness gather at the juncture of my thighs.

Dear sweet rosy-cheeked baby Jesus and all the saints in heaven.

His mouth needed to come with a warning label. Danger. Highly flammable.

But it was too late. I’d had a taste and I liked the burn.

Synopsis

From New York Times Bestselling author Nelle L’Amour, a new sizzling   STANDALONE that’s guaranteed to make your panties melt!

The first time Owen King sets eyes on her, she’s in a focus group, biting into a cream-filled donut and having the most orgasmic reaction he’s ever seen. “Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!” she cries out. He’s instantly obsessed.

Aspiring actress, Olive Cumming, has just lost her waitressing job and can’t pay her rent. But when the CEO of Donut King steps out from behind the one-way mirror and hires the curvy respondent to be his assistant, things are about to change. Big time.

Love at first sight has never been a reality for jaded, overworked Owen. And for sweet overweight Olive, love has never been within her reach. But when fate steps in, the king finds his unexpected princess, not knowing that someone is waiting in the shadows to keep them apart.

WARNING: Be prepared for over-the-top insta-love, a bit of kinky fun, and some yummy food play. This sugar-coated full-length novel is just waiting for you to take a bite.

Excerpt

I couldn’t focus behind my closed door. Thanks to the focus group, I had a shitload of emails to answer and problems to solve, ranging from what we should name our new caramel custard donut to deciding whether we should shut down our New Haven store.

All I could think about was her. My beautiful princess, Olive Cumming.

“Olive…Olive…Olive.” Oh, how I loved saying her name out loud. It took my breath away and made my cock stand at full attention.

I’d never met a woman like her before. Most of them were wafer-thin models and starlets who viewed my donuts like vermin. I was a big man with an even bigger appetite, but somehow these women, no matter how gorgeous or glamorous they were, never sated it. They wanted my money more than they wanted me.

But, Olive…she was different. She reminded me of my late mother—a big, beautiful woman, who had an insatiable appetite for life. And she was so wholesome, pure, and sweet. An innocent virgin. I was still shocked by her confession. Rather than turning me off, it turned me on. She was mine. Only mine. I’d heard about falling in love at first sight, but thought it was some bullshit myth. But it had happened to me. Untrusting, jaded Owen King, The Donut King. I was the first man to deflower her and now I owned her. And was going to protect her to the day I died. My princess just didn’t know it yet.

As I stared blankly at my computer screen, I thought about summoning her to my office and fucking her over my desk. My cock strained against my pants at the thought of her delicious ass in the air. But she had her work cut out for her and I vowed to keep the door that separated us closed. Instead, I began to fantasize what she looked like with her clothes off. Mentally, I undressed her, piece by piece, and began to imagine her butt-naked in my mind’s eye. Her luscious curves, those big fucking tits, her shapely legs all tied together by her creamy alabaster skin. Closing my eyes, I imagined licking her everywhere, the sound of her sweet moans filling my ears. I thought more about her ample breasts, envisioning them as two mounds of soft dough I could knead in my hands. And at the thought of her nipples, my balls tightened with want. There was no doubt in my mind they were pink donut-shaped buds puckered with sprinkles that would harden beneath my touch and make me lust after her. I yearned to twirl them, tweak them, suck them, and lick them. Imagining this scenario, I cupped my hand over my hard, hungry cock, buried under my trousers, and began to jerk off. Stroking myself, I leaned back in my desk chair and reveled in the sensation.

“Sir…”

Snapping my eyes open, I immediately straightened up. Olive! I thought my cock would have a heart attack.

“Yes?” My beauty. My princess. My love.

“I put together a file with the information you need.”

My eyes darted to the thick folder in her hand.

“If you don’t mind me saying, I think ZAP! is the perfect advertising agency.”

“And why is that, Olive?”

“Because the founder and CEO, Jaime Zander, is on the cutting edge. He totally transformed his wife’s company, Gloria’s Secret, into a global force.”

“The lingerie company?”

“Yes. I love that store. I wish I could shop there, but I can’t afford it.”

“And why else do you think ZAP! would be right for us?”

“Because based on what I read, Mr. Zander works quickly and efficiently and always stays on budget.”

Fuck. Not only was she sexy as hell, but she could also think. Digest information, something none of my previous assistants could do as the only thing they wanted to digest was my cum.

“Thank you, Olive. Just put the folder on my desk.”

My eyes stayed on her as she did as I asked. Holy shit. Those delectable tits, so alive with their bounce, as she strutted my way. Her days of not affording Gloria’s Secret were over. I was going to order sexy lace bras in every color—along with matching panties—and make them part of her job uniform.

“Anything else, sir?” she asked as she set the folder down.

Bend over and spread your legs. And let me fuck you over my desk.

What the hell was wrong with me? My hormones burned through me.

Fucking love.
