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.

********Warning: Teaser's are intended for Adults 18+********


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.
“Your….your….” 
“My fuckin’ cock is on your stomach, if you keep misbehaving I’ll find a better place for it.”

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.

Review Of Fallen (Blood & Roses Series Book #4) By Callie Hart

Fallen is the fourth book in the Blood & Roses series. Make sure you check out Deviant, Fracture and Burn prior to reading this instalment.

Sloane

For over two years, Sloane Romera has pinned everything on finding Alexis. Life was going to get better. Easier. Happier. The nightmare of having a missing sister was supposed to end, and everything was supposed to go back to normal.

However, now that she’s found her sister, Sloane is discovering that life has a way of ridiculing what we expect of it.


Nothing is easier. And ‘normal’ is falling for a man who might never be able to feel the same way. 


***


Zeth

A lengthy history of breaking things with his fists has given Zeth Mayfair a fairly good idea of how to get his own way. But when his goal, the one, single woman on the face of the planet that he’s truly ever wanted, can only be obtained by fixing things instead of destroying them, how can he adjust a lifetime of violence in order to make her his once and for all? And how can he make sure that she is safe?

The first part is going to take time. But the second part…


The second part is easy.


He must kill Charlie Holsan.

My Review:

All hail Queen Callie and her fantastic Blood & Roses Series. Only Callie could take an unredeemable character and turn him into every woman's Dark Avenging Angel. Callie Hart is one author you are going to want to remember. Her books make you want things you never knew you wanted, as well as, make you feel things that you would never reveal to anyone especially your closest friend....lol.

Sloane Romera's world has been turned upside down when she finds out just what happened to her sister after she disappeared. Once Sloane found Lex she thought her world would be whole again but with each passing moment she knows nothing could be further from the truth. She has also fallen for a bag guy whom she feels may never be able to feel the same about her.

Zeth Mayfair is having trouble reconciling his need for violence with his need to be Sloane's Prince Charming (so to speak). Zeth is having trouble coming to grips with his growing feelings for Sloane. He is not the usual type of guy girls should bring home to their parents but for the first time Zeth wants to be. With his former Boss Charlie still in the mix Zeth knows none of that can happen, at least not yet.

I am a fan for life of author Callie Hart. I know that what ever she writes is going to be worth reading.  I have no idea what I am going to do with myself while I wait impatiently for Twisted (Book #5) to come out. This series has given me such a book hangover. On a scale from 1-5 I give Fallen ROARING 10. If you have to ask me why then you obviously have not read this fantastical series. If you want to dig further into Zeth and Sloane's relationship, if you are looking for a series that will keep you coming back for more, a Dark Romance, or if just want to read about the the kind of people you have always feared than Fallen is the book for you. I implore EVERYONE adult 18+ to pick up a copy of Fallen. If for some unknown reason you do not have copies of Deviant (Book #1), Fracture (Book #2), or Burn (Book #3) (review of all three are below) than you need to run (don't walk) and pick up Callie Hart's Blood & Roses Series books 1-4 and find out exactly why Callie Hart is a writing force to be reckoned with. Let Zeth and Sloane tell you precisely what happens when you mess with people they care about.

Blurb:

Book 3 in the Blood & Roses series.

Please be aware that this is a Dark Romance novel and deals with serious themes, including violence and murder.


This story is the third part in a series, each approx. 30-40k words in length.


Please note * this is the re-edited version of the book. The novel sold on release day contained minor errors, all of which have now been resolved.


Sloane

I’m not safe.

I haven’t been safe for a while now.


I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is in danger himself. With Julio on one side, and the leader of the Widow Makers MC on the other, the smartest thing to do would be to run. I’ve been running long enough, though.


This is the closest I’ve come to finding my sister in two years.


I can’t back down now.


Zeth

My right hand man’s being tortured in the basement.

The guy who tried to buy Sloane’s virginity is burning rubber in our direction.


My psychotic boss is on a mission to find me, and the girl I’m supposed to be keeping safe has landed herself right in the middle of all of this.


Just another breezy weekend in the Californian desert.


What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours?


My Review:

This series gets better and more intense with each book I read. Just when I think I have things figured out Callie throws a monkey wrench at me and I am left shaking my head all over again (in a good way). I love the fact that Callie keeps me on my toes and always guessing what is actually going to be coming or happening next.

Sloane Romera finds herself in enemy territory. Being a "guest" of Julio Perez isn't as easy as she hoped. Just knowing that her sister could be near by keeps Sloane on high alert. The longer Sloane stays in Julio's compound with Zeth the harder it is for her to not get sucked into his world and not want to leave because she is too attached to him.


Zeth Mayfair not only has to deal with Julio but also the Widow Makers MC biker crew while trying to save Michael. On top of that, Zeth has to try and keep Sloane safe while she searches for her sister and he deals with Michael's relationship to the Widow Makers MC President.


If you have read Deviant (Book #1) and Fracture (Book #2) then you know at this point I can't say anymore for fear of ruining some, if not all, of the story yet to come. On a scale from 1-5 I give Burn a phenomenal 10. Like the first two books, Burn is also off my scale because Callie really knows how to keep her readers on the edge and begging for more. If you are looking for a great dark and dangerous read with forbidden attraction and more twists and turns than you can throw a stick at then Burn is the book for you. I think EVERYONE adult 18+ NEEDS to go and pick up a copy of Burn. If you haven't read Deviant (Book #1) or Fracture (Book #2) (reviews below) first then you have to pick those books up, as well as, Burn. Come discover how Zeth and Sloane deal with Julio and the MC bikers.

******STRONG LANGUAGE & EXPLICIT SEXUAL SCENES******18+

The only man Haven Wells ever loved left her broken, feeling emotionally battered and imperfect. Seven years later she's found solace in the bookstore she owns, finding love between the pages of the books she reads. Haven has adapted to a life without love or men, living vicariously through her best friend and roommate.

He's Perfect. Just ask him. Latch McKay is gorgeous, rich and successful. A famous graphic designer, he's well known for the video games he creates. However, he's also known for the trail of women he leaves behind. Latch is the walking, talking definition of wanton sex.

When Latch sees Haven at a party it's lust at first sight. A night of intoxicated passion leaves him wanting her so much he's almost willing to give up his man-whore crown. Haven has no idea why this gorgeous and much younger man wants her. After two weeks of Latch stalking her...his version of wooing — Haven has tried everything to make him go away.

But, Latch doesn't give up, and Haven finally agrees to one date. If Latch can break through Haven's walls, he just might have a chance to keep her. Unfortunately Latch has a secret of his own. As Haven's walls begin to crumble, Latch's dark secret begins to emerge.
