Another fantastic job from Davidson King

From These Ashes
by Davidson King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Davidson King’s romantic suspense style, there’s always enough tension and a real sense that something could go wrong at anytime.

There’s always two vastly different men who somehow manage to be perfect for each other.

One is always uniquely gifted with the ability to bring out the best side of what are normally incredibly dangerous men while still retaining their own strength and independence.

Here I liked how the whole narrative sort of accidentally came to be. Black wasn’t looking for Quill, Quill was just trying to survive. But somehow circumstances conspired to bring them together and make Black be the one to try and put things right.

There’s brief glimpses of Mace and Bill, Teddy and Riordan and series faves Snow and Christopher. We also get given a potential new pairing which I personally think may end up being a three, and there’s another glimpse into the world of the mysterious Pie, who is so totally the Hart heir I’d put money on it.

There is violence, as expected, but I was surprised at just how dirty Black was willing to get his hands dirty once it became clear Quill was a target. The ending is brutal but I felt not a flicker of pity for those involved.

I’m eagerly looking forward to reading the next one in this fascinating series.

Exceptional follow up in this paranormal series from Nicholas & Aimee Nicole

Cirlce of Trust Cover
Circle of Trust
by Nicholas Bella & Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Exceptional follow up to the first book in this paranormal collaboration from the pens of Nicholas Bella and Aimee Nicole Walker.

Christopher was the hard-headed best friend of D’Angelo in book one and a fascinating character with his extreme hatred of vampires – understandable given what happened to his family.

In this, Lorcan, the vampire Regent who helped D defeat a demon in the first book, crosses paths with Christopher and let’s just say the effects are as hot as the fires at Lorcan’s command.

I’m not going into the plot, it’s excellent and well paced with the Genesis gang all playing a part and some new faces being added to the mix.

I’m seriously Jonesing now for book three!

A Lavender Shores Novel by Rosalind Abel

Publication Day May 30th 2018

Cover Artist: AngstyG




Jasper Getty is living his dream as the owner of the charming bookshop, Lavender Pages. For seven years, he’s enjoyed the safety and freedom to be himself, selling books by day and curling up and getting lost in novels by night. But a dark page from the past comes back to haunt Jasper as his ex begins stalking him.

Russell Wallace hit reset on his life in Nashville and became a bodyguard after decades of living according to family expectations. But even years later, he doesn’t believe he deserves happiness. When Russell is asked to travel to the beautiful seaside town of Lavender Shores to protect a friend’s brother, he expects nothing more than a job and a paycheck.

But Lavender Shores reveals a world Russell never imagined, and his immediate attraction to the adorably geeky Jasper complicates an already difficult job. Jolted by the memory of a shared moment and paths that crossed years ago intensifies the sparks into a bonfire of passion and hope.

When danger comes pounding at the door, Jasper is in danger of losing his life… and his heart.

About Rosalind:

Rosalind Abel grew up tending chickens alongside her sweet and faithful Chow, Lord Elgin. While her fantasy of writing novels was born during her teen years, she never would have dreamed she’d one day publish steamy romances about gorgeous men. However, sometimes life turns out better than planned.

In between crafting scorching sex scenes and helping her men find their soul mates, Rosalind enjoys cooking, collecting toys, and making the best damn scrapbooks in the world (this claim hasn’t been proven, but she’s willing to put good money on it).

She adores MM Romance, the power it has to sweep the reader away into worlds filled with passion, steam, and love. Rosalind also enjoys her collection of plot bunnies and welcomes new fuzzy ones into her home all the time, so feel free to send any adorable ones her way.

Action packed adrenalin rush of a romance

EDIT: April 20. Rinda and Jocelynn have issued an apology over the use of the word Shylock in Deadly Dorian. You can read it here: http://drakeandelliott.com/2018/04/sincere-apologies/

Deadly Dorian (Ward Security, #3)Deadly Dorian by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So Royce & Marc came this >< close to taking top spot on my most favourites list of Rinda & Jocelynn couples up until Rowe’s Mrs Peacock moment.

Then he firmly secured his and Noah’s existing place as reining champions in two series’ of books which just tick pretty much every one of my boxes.

The last 25% of this book is the sort of adrenaline rush you usually get from a big screen thriller and the plot races along, paying a lesser lip service to its classical literature influence then the previous two Ward Security stories have, but still calling to mind Oscar Wilde’s story of hedonistic behaviour and double crossing.

Oh, and this one is hot. Like C4 explosive hot, like screw me over a Tuscan balcony hot, like “I can’t keep my hands off you” hot. These two being a whole new definition to sexual tension, it oozes off them whenever they’re in the same space and I just absorbed it all in like the best aphrodisiac.

I’m not going to go into too much plot detail but suffice it to say, your heart will be in your throat at the audacious behaviour these two get up to and you’ll be gasping in surprise and praying as hard as you can as forces array against them.

But be assured, family is at the heart of this story, as with all the romances in these two interlinked stories, and you will cheer and whoop for joy when the big guns come to play 🙂

Oh, and at 5% you’ll be screaming at Rinda & Jocelynn – “Oh no, you didn’t do that”
 – just as loud as I did while also squealing with delight.

The gushing and Fangirling is all my own work and I’m not a bit ashamed about it 😀

Worth every one of those five stars

Guns n' Boys: Box Set - Books 1-3 + Guns n' Boys: Paris + FREE Guns n’ Boys: Box Set – Books 1-3 + Guns n’ Boys: Paris + FREE “Blood&Marriage by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a ride, my God this box set is an explosive mix of murderous Mafiosi and gorgeously dangerous guys. With all sorts of taboos, death, mayhem and illegal dealings, the three novels and two short stories in this collection bring to life Seth and his reluctant bodyguard Domenico almost in beautiful 3D.

Their relationship jumps off the page, brutal and passionate, tortured and calm, forgiving and reckless, emotional and ice-cold, these two Italian men scorch their way through one drama and crisis to another, bringing along a whole host of interesting side kicks and characters.

It’s not all dark though, there are plenty of humorous moments, plenty of heart warming still and quiet moments, plenty of heart breaking moments.

The two short stories brilliantly flesh out the first three novels and while I don’t usually like M/F appearing in the middle of an M/M series, in this case Lucrezia and Santo’s romance worked perfectly as insight into what was happening on the other side of Seth and Dom’s daring escape.

Sex is all ends up epic but the true joy is in the crafting of two wondrous men who are both vicious at times, both a little bit broken, both a little bit trapped into their Family roles but who, together, find the strength to try and break free.
