Review -- Never Trust A Saint by Melissa Jane

Never Trust a Saint (Los Santos Cartel #1)Never Trust a Saint by Melissa Jane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Say WHAT??? Why did I wait so long to read this one???

This one started out a little slow but picked up and didnt stop. I loved the mystery surrounding the story. I had my suspicions about who done it, but in the end it played out a little different than I was thinking. I love when I can't figure it out.

The story behind the mystery was fantastic. I loved the high speed chases and twists and turns. It kept me on my toes. And the ending??? Im glad I waited to read it when the 2nd book was available. I am most definitely on to book 2!!

Hunter was dark and broody. A total jerk just the way I like them. And yet he had a soft spot for the heroine that he didnt have for anyone else. And that is my favorite kind of leading man.

Was Hunter the good guy? Was he the bad guy?? I spent the entire book trying to figure out which side he was on and as I veture into book 2 Im still not exactly sure what side of the fence he is on.

Nina was my favorite kind of leading lady. Strong, fierce, independent and yet not over the top. I think she could of stood up for herself a little bit more, expecially when it comes to Hunter, but over all she was fierce.

I can't wait to see how this plays out. Now, where is the next book??

Review -- Blame it on the Shame Pt 2 by Ashley Jade

Blame It on the Shame- (part 2)Blame It on the Shame- by Ashley Jade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


*Bangs head on desk* *Continues to bang head on desk*

OMG... O.M.G.....OH Em Gee!!! It did not end like that!! What?? I didnt see that ending coming -- AWESOME!!! I LOVE when that happens. Although I now have grabby hands and need the next book like I need air right now.

What a ride this one was. Ricardo is back. And I. Am. IN. LOVE!!! *Swoon* He is the perfect blend of asshole and soft. He has a dirty mouth and is even dirtier between the sheets. He loves hard and OMG the ending and what he did to prove his love for Lou Lou. Im at a loss for words. How can I get across the pure awesomeness of Ricardo and not give anything away??? You have got to experience Ricardo for yourself. Because that is what he is -- an experience.

And Lou Lou. My heart breaks and aches for her. I swear if anyone needs a break in life it is her. This beautiful flower that is 1/2 open and keeps getting taken out of the sun and left unwatered so she cant fully open. And that ending -- just.... she... but.... wth just happened?? Even knowing what happens before it happened I still found myself shocked. What are you talking about KC??

This book runs parallel with Blame it on the Pain. Meaning you know alot of what will happen because we read it from Jackson and Alyssa's POV. Blame it on the Shame is Ricardo and Lou Lou's POV. Now, I know what some of you are thinking. Great, it's the same damn book just in a different POV. But, you'd be wrong. The author did an amazing job at making it feel fresh and new. Not one time did I ever feel like I was reading the same book over. How she pulled this off I have no idea. But even experiencing some of the same scenes from a different POV never felt redundant. I loved how the author was able to make the alternating POV's fresh and new. You have to read it to fully appreciate what Iam saying.

This series has been a grand slam for me. There is just enough angst, perfect amount of mystery, hot sex and killer drama that is not over the top making you want to keep your nose in the book and turning pages. In fact I binge read this one. I started and didn't put it down. I made a frozen pizza for dinner and almost burned it because I was at a really good part and lost track of time. I saved the pizza in the nic of time *whew*

If you are looking for a good Romantic Suspense that flows well, keeps you guessing and on your toes, has some really hot sex and is an easy read then this series is for you. It has some dark themes and is what I call grey. It deals with dark elements but isn't a dark book. If that doesnt make sense then all I can say is you have got to read this book!!!

**This is not a stand alone. You must read Blame It On The Pain and Blame It On The Shame Pt 1 before you read Blame It On The Shame Pt 2**

Review - Blame It On The Shame pt 1 by Ashley Jade

Blame It on the Shame  (part 1)Blame It on the Shame by Ashley Jade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Amazing!! This was a great continuation of Blame it on the Pain, I loved how this one runs parallel and gives the back story of Ricardo and Lou Lou. You are left wondering alot about these two as you finish Blame it on the Pain and this answers those questions.

Im now ready to dive into part 2 so that I can see how these two play out.

Ricardo was delicious. I absolutely loved him. He had that perfect blend of alpha male jerk and soft for his girl blend that I love so much.

Lou Lou was a great female lead. The author did an amazing job of making Lou Lou unlikeable yet loveable at the same time. I didnt ever think she was too whiney or over the top. And I know this probably makes no sense but once you read the story you will totally get what Iam saying.

Now this one is hard to review because not only do I not want to give out spoilers, Iam at risk of giving out spoilers for Blame it on the Pain as well. Doesnt make sense??? You have to read the story.

Although these books are outside of my normal, I am so glad I jumped in and read them. Fantastic reads. They are paced well, full of just the right amount of angst and has a good mystery surrounding the story. Very very well done. This author has officially made it to my auto 1 click list!!

Now.... where is that next book??????

Review -- Blame it on the Pain by Ashley Jade

Blame It on the PainBlame It on the Pain by Ashley Jade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Wow -- Where is my very own Jackson??

This is my 1st book by this author and I will defiantly read more. This one was fast paced and didnt have any slow spots. Awesome

Full of surprises that make you go hmm, I was left with my jaw on the floor more than once. And Im super stoked that I didnt see it playing out like it did. I was thinking one thing and the author shook it up and turned everything on its head leaving me excited that I wasnt able to figure it out. The characters were well written, likeable and relateable. And the supporting cast left you wanting to know their stories.

Jackson was a good leading man. I wanted him to be a bit more of an asshole. But that is my opinion. I like a leading man that is hard around the edges and hard towards everyone but his girl. And this is the sole reason I was unable to give this one a 5 star rating.

If you havent read anything by this author, jump on it. Im jumping into book 2 now.....

Review: Pretty Stolen Dolls

Pretty Stolen Dolls Pretty Stolen Dolls by Ker Dukey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No No No NO!!! Omg.... where is book 2??? It did not end like that!!!

What an awesome read..... I had been in a book rut and this one catapulted me out of it. Ker Dukey is one of my favorite authors and Pretty Stolen Dolls did not disappoint me. Twists and turns and that edge of darkness that Ker is so good at kept me turning pages with sleepless nights. And just when you think you know what is going to happen you are thrown a curve ball that totally derails you.

Dolls are like clowns -- creepy. Anyone remember Chucky?? And the creepy doll factor makes this one so unique. I have not read anything else like it. And if you are looking for something unique and creepy, then this one is for you. Kidnapping. Getting away. Murder. Mayhem. This book has a bit of everything but it all goes together and flows. So even tho there is so much going on, it doesnt have that just thrown in for shock feel.

And lets talk about the hero.... I didnt see that one coming. Nope...not going to tell you who it is... but I will tell you that he shows up right on time and his ability to help our heroine and believe in her when no one else does makes him swoon worthy. He has the perfect blend of Alpha and Caring. He was delicious.

The heroine has strength that is admirable. She has suffered so much in her life and her demons run deep. Not many people would be able to overcome and conquer the things that she has endured. But what I loved the most about her was that she was real. This character was so well developed. She had strength, perseverance, and the will to overcome, yet at the same time I loved that she was battling her demons. She was relateable and I love that in a character.

Side note -- If you dont like a darker read then this book is not for you. If you dont like a good psychological mind twist, then this book is not for you. If you dont like a bit of gore, then this book is not for you.
But, if you love a good dark, crazy read then jump on this one. The only recommendation I have is that you may want to wait until book 2 comes out so that you can dive right into it after you have finished this one. Im pulling my hair out and doing the hurry up and publish book 2 dance. Iam dying to know how this one plays out!!!

Blogging and keeping up with the Jones'

I love to blog. So why has my page been idle?? Because I have allowed myself to get away from the love of blogging and caught up in the pressure of posting what is dictated by others.

Keeping up with the Jones'. It never works. Chasing the success of others and feeling less than what Iam because I am judging myself based on others. Frustrating --- and it leaves me not wanting to do the things I love to do because I dont feel "good enough". But what defines "good"? What or who gets to decide what makes me successful? Why am I concentrating on all the things around me and not on my true love??I havent even written an actual book review in the last couple of months. And why that is I have yet to actually figure out. And I just keep coming back to the fact that I dont feel good enough.

New Authors complain because the bigger blogs wont post for them or because the bigger blogs wont read their books. They often seem uninterested in us little guys. So the little guys get to the point that we begin to wonder why we bother. I mean, if authors dont feel we are good enough why bother? Right?? No wait --- WRONG! I am good enough. I may not have 10,000 plus likes, but I do have an audience. So why is it that my little blog isnt good enough in the eyes of some of the authors. And why do I allow this mind set to discourage me from doing what I love?? Am I blogging for me or am I blogging to Keep up with the Jones'?

Iam tired of feeling hurt, not good enough or like I dont matter. But ultimately I am allowing these feelings to control me. If an author has 100 plus smaller blogs sign up for a release blitz or a cover reveal and each of those blogs have an audience, versus a couple of bigger blogs with larger numbers, then people are still being reached. And thats the goal -- reaching people.

Every blog had to start at the bottom. Every blog had only a few thousand likes at one time. The people that run the bigger blogs put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the people that run the smaller blogs do. So why is it that we get caught up in this big blog vs small blog??? We stress ourselves out and make ourselves feel unworthy. Then we get to the point that we get away from our love and why we began blogging to begin with.

So, Im tired now. Tired of trying to keep up with the Jones'. Enough is Enough. I refuse to let another person make me feel like Iam not worthy, or good enough. And Iam going to get back to my 1st love. My true love. I refuse to be a victim any longer. If an author doesnt feel like Iam good enough, then I wont help that author. And then that is 3000 plus less people that said author wont reach. And that doesnt hurt me, it hurts them. I am worth more than being put down and looked down upon.

I am in control of my life. I have likes and dislikes. I have ideas and wants and dreams..... And Iam going to allow my dreams to come true. Because in the end its not about how many likes I get, or how many people want to react to my posts. Its about what I LOVE...... and I love blogging.

The first book in a seductive new series from Scott Hildreth, the #1 Amazon bestselling author of BRAWLER and HARD CORPS. 

Tripp


Once, I took down terrorists on the front lines as a marine.
Now I'm in the business of bad.
I've sold guns to people others might not approve of.
I've eliminated the criminals, the lowlifes and the thugs who've tread on my turf.
And I looked the Sicilian Mafia boss in the eye and told him to f*** off.
No one tells me no, unless it's their last word.
I didn't just act the part of bad—I lived it. Then she stumbled into my life.
I tried to stay away from her. Tried focusing on moving my merchandise. But one smile from Terra was like a shot to the heart.
She's mine now. And no one threatens what's mine.

Terra 

I've seen a lot of terrible things in my life.
I grew up around lies and deception, and I ran away from all of them.
Until I met him.
I knew he was corrupt. I knew he was dangerous.
I should have stayed away, but my attraction to him, my needfor him, overrode my logic.
Now I love him.
If he finds out who I am, we're done and I'll be nothing.
I never wanted to be the Mafia princess they tried to make me, but mia familia had other plans. And what mia familia wants…it gets.
Only Michael Tripp can save me.

Review: Sociopath's Revenge

Sociopath's Revenge Sociopath's Revenge by V.F. Mason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

NEXT!! I must have the next one......

Revenge picks up right where Sociopath ended. And from beginning to end it was action packed and full of surprises. I cant tell you these bc I dont want to give away the book. Just when you think you have it figured out, you discover real quick you didnt. So much of this book came out of left field. Which is what made it so good. You never know what to expect. And I LOVED this about the book. I love an unpredictable non traditional HEA, and this book delivered.
