This one is smoking hot and a great send off for this series

48725770._SY475_Lust Hate Love by Ella FrankBrooke Blaine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Full review tomorrow but that was a hell of a send off for Fallen Angel.


I’ve always been fascinated by Killian, the cool as a cucumber, sexy as all out bass player (and just what IS it about bass players, they’re usually ultra sexy imho) and now Ella and Brooke give the reader his happy ending.

And what an ending, a fight from start to finish to prove to manager Levi that there was more to them than just insane chemistry.

I loved every bit of this spicy book with surprisingly loads of feels, although Halo and Viper right got on my wick in this one with their arsey ways 😁

Devil’s Hour doesn’t disappoint

Devils Hour CoverDevil’s Hour by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my lordy don’t read this one in public or listen to the audio with your headphones off because Aimee Nicole kicks it off with explosively hot chemistry-filled sex!

In Devil’s Hour we get inside Royce’s head and I’ve been looking forward to it and wasn’t disappointed at all.

He really is a complex character, filled with internal doubts, guilts and probably some kind of trauma-related anxiety over Marcus’ suicide.

Speaking of, Royce’s former partner and best friend’s death is still playing a part in the narrative, and with this novel, we see more and more how all the various threads are being gently woven together into a tight plot which keeps the tensions rolling throughout.

I did guess the bad guy as soon as he arrived on the scene but, for me anyways, I don’t think it actually was obvious, I think I was just looking hard for the odd little clue and something just tipped me off.

The relationship development is delicious. Having been shot in the last book, Royce is now fully on board with Sawyer and there’s some serious sparks flying throughout, as well as some awwww moments.

Chuck in a mad cult, arson attacks and the mayor’s behaviour being exposed, and you have another wonderful Locke and Key adventure.

Given what happens at the end of this one, I’m really hoping there isn’t a long way for book three!

Another delicious walk on the dark side from Kat and Agnes

43908251._SY475_.jpgStraight as a Wheel: Smoke Valley MC by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Only Kat and Agnes Merikan could give their readers a romance between two men who you should be be rooting to end up in jail but who you’re desperate to see get their HEA.

The Sex and Mayhem series is among my favourite walk on the darker side of life. With this book, we’re back with the Smoke Valley MC and it’s Rain’s older brother Leo who gets the focus.

There’s so much I want to say about this book, but like any Merikan narrative, I think they all work better when you go in blind.

Let’s just say, if watching lost boys who don’t know they’re lost fall for guys who don’t realise they’re bisexual until they get hit over the head with a visceral attraction, is your thing, this book’s totally for you.

I loved every twisted, bad boy biker bit of it.

Exceptional romance from Eden Finley – this hit all of my favourite elements

Hat Trick (Fake Boyfriend, #5)Hat Trick by Eden Finley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Exceptional. This one might have just sneaked ahead of Miller and Talon to be my favourite in what has been a truly outstanding series from Eden Finley.

Jet and Soren were just such a compelling pair. The use of flashbacks worked brilliantly to give the reader insight into the single previous encounter they’d had before each knew who the other was and the chemistry and connection between them was palpable.

From the moment they meet again on Fiji to the absolutely brilliant Epilogue, Jet and Soren were just a joy to read. There are sparks and sarcasm, there is love and there is ultimately a pair who just bring out the best in the other.

Sex is steamy and sensual and also sometimes funny and I love how these two can bring the other out of a funk. The tensions in the book are all created by external forces and I liked that Eden didn’t dwell too long with any sort of will they, won’t they over Jet’s ex-boyfriend and with Soren’s professional ice hockey career.

The rest of the gang are also on hand to bring the laughs and, if this is to be the final full-length book, I think Eden has brought the curtain down in some style.

This was just fab

All for Wesley (Pineapple Grove #2)All for Wesley by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just fab.

This is the second in the Pineapple Grove series set in a small Florida community and the pace and feel is quite different than the usual action-heavy romantic suspense these two write together.

I love the ease with which they give the reader a lighter narrative, but without it ever just turning into a typical bland romance.

Here it’s an enemies to lovers study where the central focus is on two men both trying to live their dreams but with the other standing in the way.

I loved the organic way these two started to thaw as the insane chemistry and attraction they had gave way to mutual understanding and affection – as well as scorching hot smexy times.

The resolution to their dilemma felt earned and not just plot points and I love the friendship group that anchors this series.

Hopefully Lincoln and Jamison’s best friends to lovers will be next!
