Blurb:

When Sawyer Reed wants something, he gets it.
And I WANT her.
She doesn't know it yet, but she's already mine.
Her resistance is futile because once I start a play, I always follow through. And I ALWAYS win.
Nothing, not even the deep-seated hate I have for my rival, Jacob Byrd, is going to keep me from my end game.
And my end game is Gretchen Cole.
But I have to keep my head in the game. Everyone knows what happens to a quarterback when he loses his focus. He gets SACKED.

My Review:

I have LOVED Tabatha's books ever since I read Little Black Book back in 2014. Sacked did not disappoint. Sacked had my undivided attention with it's first sentence. I'd tell you what it was but what fun would that be. You have to read this gem of a book for yourself. Tabatha is such a phenomenal writer that I must warn you that once you pick up one of her books you will be hooked for life.  One more thing you may or may not want to have a box of tissues handy. Just saying....lol

Sawyer Reed is used to girls falling at his feet to be with him because is suck an amazing quarterback. Let's face it, he has the looks, the charm, and what girl doesn't love a quarterback. Even with those things going for him he doesn't have the one girl he wants falling at his feet and that would be Gretchen Cole. Sawyer has to pull out all the stops to get Gretchen to give him the time of day.

Gretchen Cole is a no nonsense kind of girl. She see's all the girls fawning all over Sawyer and she wants not part of it. Gretchen is on a mission and nothing Sawyer Reed says or does is going to change her course of action. But Gretchen has a secret, that if it got out, would ruin all her well laid plans.

Sawyer pursues Gretchen like it's his life's mission, while Gretchen's well placed wall is starting to crumble where Sawyer is concerned. These two strong willed individuals try to fight their attraction but it doesn't seem to be working but all that glitters is not gold and forces beyond their control factor into their lives.

I really can't say anymore with out spoiling this book for somebody. There is so much more that goes on that will having you saying omg or what the heck. Tabatha knows how to tell a story and she definitely knows how to make that story HOT! If you are looking for a great book with great characters, hidden agenda's, childhood rivalries, or just an all and all great book than Sacked is the one for you. If you are new to Tabatha's work Sacked is a good introduction. Everyone adult 18+ needs to run out and pick up their copy of Sacked and let Sawyer and Gretchen tell their side of the story.

Review Of Demons (A Runes Companion Novel, Eirik Book #1) By Ednah Walters


Demons (A Runes Companion Novel, Eirik Book #1) By Ednah Walters

Blurb:

Eirik Baldurson--son of Baldur, God of Light--failed living as a Mortal. He lost the girl of his dreams and nearly got his friends killed. Now, he's gone to the underworld to meet the mother he's never known. Torn between his duty to her and the man he used to be, Eirik struggles to find himself, until a witch appears in his world. Feisty and stubborn, she is a reminder of everything good he left behind.

Celestia Devereaux proudly attends a charter high school for "gifted" teenagers who embrace magic. Witches. However, she keeps a terrible secret--a prediction that she would one day be responsible for massive destruction and death. Though Celestia uses her clairvoyant abilities to help people, she worries that it is just a matter of time before she goes over to the dark side.

Her world changes when she unexpectedly astral projects to a place she didn't believe existed and meets a tortured man who needs her help. Will helping him cause her fears to come true, or will he sacrifice everything to save her?

My Review:

I was glued to Demons from start to finish. I loved finally being able to get a glimpse into Eirik Baldurson's life. For six books (even though technically this book comes after Grimnirs) I have been dying to know what happened to Eirik after he left Raine and the gang. Demons completely satisfied my curiosity but also left me greedy and wanting more. Just when I think Ednah's writing can't surprise me she goes and proves me wrong. Her attention to detail and ability to transport her reading to every setting she puts before you is beyond amazing.

Eirik's life hasn't turned out quite the way he has wanted it to.  Now, he's decided to meet his  mother in the underworld. Eirik has never really had parents to set boundaries for him so his mother's high handed tactics don't sit well with him. He struggles with having his mother trying to control him and with himself. He want's to be the person he was born to become while pleasing his mother at the same time.

Celestia Devereaux embraces the fact that she is a witch. Although she has been told that she is not only evil but a harbinger of death Celestia knows she can't be any of those things because all she ever wants to do is help people. When Celestia unexpectedly crosses paths with Eirik, she makes it her mission to help him.

I'm afraid to say much more because I don't want to reveal too much and ruin the book for anybody. The back and forth between Eirik and Celestia gave their chemistry that much more meaning. You could feel how much they where drawn to each other but also how hard it was for them to admit how they felt to each other. Some books start out slow and ease you into the story but not with Ednah's books. Her books need to come with a seat belt because you are usually handing at the edge of your seat or twisted in knots hanging on for dear life like you're on a roller coaster. On a scale of 1 to 5 I have to give Demons a 10. Anything less just seemed wrong to me. This book had everything I've come to love about Ednah's books and so much more. If you are looking for a book with wonderful characters, a story with amazing attention to detail, conflict, or a book that is just too good to put down then Demons is the book for you. If you are a fan of the Runes Series or the Grimnirs books then you must run out and pick up your copy of Demons. If you are new to these books then you need to pick up Runes, Immortals, Grimnirs, Demons, Seeress, Souls, and Witches. Let Eirik show you what it is like in the underworld while Celestia shows you, you are more than what people say you are.

Runes series continues with Eirik's books.

Review Of Souls (Grimnirs Book #2, Runes Series Book #5) By Ednah Walters



SOULS




WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.


Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?

Review

Souls is a roller coaster ride that grips you and doesn't let go, not even with a mind blowing twist that has you reeling until the very end. Just when Cora thought it was safe to walk the halls of her school... BAM, Ednah Walters let's you know that not everything that dies necessarily stays dead. Ednah knows how to build the suspense in her books until it is a powder keg about to explode.

Cora Jemison takes her new "job" very seriously. She feels she has a sense of purpose when she is helping souls get closure before they are reaped by Echo. What she isn't prepared for is a dark soul with a mysterious link to Echo to visit her in the dead of night. Cora feels she has to help this dark soul in order to bring peace to Echo and the rest of the Grimnirs and Valkyries.What Cora failed to see was how much of a strain this would put on her and Echo's relationship.

Echo has gone along with Cora's efforts to help souls move on. That all changes when he finds out she has encountered a dark soul whom he knows very well. Echo is determined to stop Cora from helping anymore souls including this dark soul. Echo only wants to protect Cora but his stubbornness only ends up pushing Cora further away. 

I wish I could say more but I might anger the Norns for revealing too much and they might erase my existence....lol. This book starts out intense and only gets more so the longer you read it until the very last page. On a scale from 1-5 I give Souls a 10. Giving this book a 5 would not do it justice because Ednah packed so much action into this book and such a mind blowing twist a 5 felt like a slap in her face....lol. If you are looking for an author who knows how to tell a story that keeps you hook from beginning to end then look no further than Ednah Walters. She is a sensational author whom is an automatic buy for me. If you are a fan of Runes Series and the Grimnirs than you need to run out and grab your copy of Souls. If you are new to this series than you really need to pick up Runes, Immortals, Grimnirs, and Seeress, as well as, Souls. Let Cora and Echo show you what it is like to live in their world one soul at a time.

Review Of Twisted (Blood & Roses Series Book #5) By Callie Hart

Twisted (Blood & Roses Series Book #5) By Callie Hart

File Size: 2513 KB
Print Length: 171 pages
Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Language: English
ASIN: B00MUXSBBA
Source & Purchase: Amazon.com
Age: Adult 18+*

Blurb:

Twisted is book 5 in the Blood & Roses series. Make sure to check out Deviant, Fracture, Burn, and Fallen before reading this installment!

Sloane

How many times can a person fall down and still get back up? How many times can things go wrong before you just give up?

I've lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn't exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn't change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn't have Lacey. I wouldn't have Michael.

But most importantly, I wouldn't have him.

I've realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains:

Is he capable of feeling the same way?

Zeth

Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be.

I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn't run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me.

If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her.

My Review:

When this went live on Amazon I snatched it up and put down the book I was already reading so I could spend some much need time with Zeth. My jaw continually hit the floor all throughout this book. There was also one ore two people that I severely wanted to slap across the face. I was excited to know more about Michael and Rebel's history together. Callie actually gave Michael a little bit of a voice in this book which was cool.

Sloane Romera knows her confession on the phone may just send Zeth away for good. Between dodging Charlie, Julio, and the D.E.A. Sloane is starting to figure out what is truly important to her. This whole situation lets her know just who her friends are and who she needs to actually watch out for.

Zeth Mayfair is thrown for a loop my an admission that Sloane makes on the phone. Zeth doesn't know how to feel the way Sloane needs him to. Zeth knows if he wants Sloane to stick around he is going to have to stop and chance how he handles his "job" from here on in. Zeth wants to show Sloane how he feels, but for so long, he has considered those type of feelings a weakness which he is now having a hard time reconciling with.

Oh my gosh I am already fiending for the next book. I NEED to know what happens next. I LOVE how Callie constantly keeps Zeth and Sloane evolving so that they don't become a stagnant couple. She keeps throwing things at them that keeps me coming back to each new book wondering what form of hell they are going to be facing this time. I really can't say anymore or I will ruin this book for someone. On a scale from 1-5 I give Twisted a nail-biting 10. It is hard to keep to my scale when each of Callie's books blows the previous one out of the water. If you are looking for a Dark Romance with characters you actually want to root for, sinister villains, twisted family ties, or if you just like a story that has more than one type of criminal and an anti-hero worth drooling over than you NEED to pick up a copy of Twisted. Everyone Adult 18+ NEEDS to pick up a copy of Twisted. If you haven't read the first four books in this series Deviant (Book #1), Fractured (Book #2), Burn (Book #3), or Fallen (Book #4) (links to all four reviews below) then you need to pick them up as well and catch up with the rest of us, Zeth's angry girls....^_^. Trust me you don't want to miss out on reading Callie's Blood & Roses Series. Come find out how Zeth and his angry girl Sloane evade hostile threats while their sanctuary falls down around them.

Review Of High Stakes (Vittorio Crime Family #1) By Vanessa Waltz

Blurb:

There are a million reasons why I should stay away from Vincent Cesare.

This was supposed to be temporary. I was supposed to deal for his illegal card games and get some quick cash. That was it. I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.

Little by little, I see the monster grinning at me through the cracks in his pretty suit. He won't tell me what he does, and I'm not sure I want to know. The darkness in his eyes terrifies me. He's seduced me into his web of lies with his charm, and now I'm trapped in his life. He's taken control over me without me even realizing...or resisting.

I'm in way over my head.

He promised that nothing would ever happen to me. The Vittorio family wants me dead and there's only one person I can turn to. But what scares me is what I'll have to do.

I'll need to become his.

Author's Note: This is a standalone dark romance novel with no cliffhangers, it contains themes of violence and mature situations that could make readers uncomfortable. Part two coming out soon! 

My Review:

Vanessa knocks it out of the park with her dark and gritty romance High Stakes. Unlike her last book Ruthless which dealt with an MC her latest book deals with an Italian Mob Family. This book sucked me in from page one. I was up all night reading it because I just couldn't put it down. The way Vanessa writes about The Vittorio Family makes you feel like you are really a part of Vince's lifestyle. In my opinion, there was never a dull moment in this book. it was action packed from beginning to end.

Adriana "Ade" Baldino loves to play poker and she's a great dealer. One night out with her bff Maria and Maria's cousin Jackie ends up changing the course of Adriana's life forever. From the moment Ade lays eyes on Vincent she feels this undeniable attraction to him. Even after Adriana discovers what Vince does for a living she just can't stay away from him. One fateful night of dealing cards opens up Adriana's eyes to a whole new world; a world in which there is no turning back from.

Vincent "Vince" Cesare is not the type of guy that good girls should ever get involved with. for one thing he runs illegal card games and secondly his real job has a Boss you just DON'T want to mess with. Vincent never expected someone like Adriana to fall into his lap quite like she does. Vincent knows he should stay away from Ade but even he knows it is way too late for that.

I can't say anymore or else I will ruin it for everyone and could possibly end up sleeping with the fishes....lol. I CAN'T wait until book #2 is published. On a scale from 1-5 I give High Stakes at 10. How could I not go off the scales with a book like this. Vanessa has quickly grown to be my go to author when it comes to dark and gritty romance novels. If you looking for a book that takes you out of your comfort zone, that's dark and gritty, keeps you at the edge of your seat from start to finish, or if you just want an AWESOME story than High Stakes is the book for you. I urge EVERYONE Adult 18+ to run out and pick up a copy of High Stakes. Don't judge Vincent and Adriana to harshly until you hear their side of the story.

He growls once more and then ends the call, spinning to me. “Get in that room, now.” 
“Not sure that’s a good idea,” I say, taking a step back.
He lunges for me, catching hold of my wrist and hurling me so hard against his body he loses his towel. I squeal, but he keeps his arm pinned around me, pressing my thighs against his very naked body. His cock is resting on my belly, even though I can’t feel the skin, I can feel it’s presence there.

Synopsis
In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau.

Ash is a prison guard, she's tough, she's strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned.

Until the day he is brought into the prison.

She'll never forget meeting Beau 'Krypt' Dawson for the first time. She'll never forget his haunted eyes and his numb expression. He's a member of the Jokers Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood.

Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic.
All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason.

Ash is desperate to know that reason.

Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. Only Ash ends up right in the middle of it.
They take her, too.

Now she's stuck with a Motorcycle Club who are tougher than any prisoner she's ever laid eyes on. And they won't let her go. She's too much of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together....alone.

An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.
