From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new standalone romantic comedy.
Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, has been at the top of his game for years. He thinks he’s untouchable—until a betrayal brings him spiraling down. Now, everyone pities him, and if there’s one thing Vaughn hates, it’s pity.
After a few months of working his way through every available actress, pop star, model, and waitress in California, Vaughn needs to get his life back on track and focus on what he does best—making hit movies.
Charlotte Michaels is in love. Just not with one person. Louis Vuitton…Christian Dior…Valentino…Gucci…And the list goes on.
Sadly, Charly’s limited bank account doesn’t allow her those luxuries, and the closest she gets are lucky finds in charity shops and working closely with some of those names in her job as a wardrobe assistant.
Now, Charly has landed the mother of all jobs—working on the new Vaughn West movie. Excited doesn’t even cut it.
Only things don’t go as planned, and it turns out that Vaughn is actually a jerk. A hot jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
So, why do their clothes keep falling off whenever they’re around each other? And why can’t Charly keep her mind in the closet and off Vaughn?
Getting mixed up with a smart-mouthed, fashion-obsessed wardrobe assistant is the last thing Vaughn needs.
Getting mixed up with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor who has a lack of respect for fashion is the last thing Charly needs.
Things are about to get hot, dirty, and messy in Hollywood. Very messy. Especially if Charly’s closely guarded secret falls out of her closet.

It all started with a twerk, a precariously misplaced pin and a cock warmer…

And ended with me hugging my kindle in glee because not only is this romantic comedy a jovial, fun and sexy read but it was the perfect lighthearted escapism that I never knew I was craving until now.

I’m a sucker for Hollywood romances and yes, I’ve read a few but Wardrobe Malfunction by far is now one of my absolute favourites.

Vaughn and Charly’s story is a laugh a minute but it has so much heart and honesty that you cannot help but fall in love with them in equal measure. Yes, our hero is gorgeous, witty and highly amusing but it was Charly who I admired as she held her own admirably given her position and I do love a strong heroine who isn’t afraid to take a gamble on Hollywood’s golden boy.

I don’t want to go into a story overview because this is one you have to just delve in and enjoy for yourself as you travel from New York, to Vegas to Oregon and back. Charly and Vaughn’s journey is a pleasureable, fun and lighthearted read that will put a smile on your face and another notch on the romcom favourite list.

Samantha Towle does it again!

5 shiny pins.

WARNING!This book will break your heart!
From the best-selling romance author of THE EDUCATION OF SEBASTIAN comes a sexy, heart-breaking and heart-warming story about one man and his dog. (Standalone)
Alex is lost and alone, with only his dog, Stan for company. He doesn’t expect kindness from anyone anymore, but sometimes hope can be found in the most unlikely places. He has a second chance at happiness, but there’s a dark side to Alex, and a reason that more than one person has called him crazy.
Single mother Dawn is doing just fine. Except that her ex- is a pain in the a**, her sister isn’t speaking to her, and her love life is on the endangered list.
At least her job as a veterinarian is going well. Until a crazy-looking guy arrives at her office accompanied by an aging dog with toothache. Or maybe Alex Winters isn’t so crazy after all, just … different.
Dawn realizes that she’s treated him the same way that all the gossips in town have treated her—people can be very cruel.

Another strong, beautifully executed love story by Jane Harvey-Berrick.

Even though this wasn’t my favourite book of hers, I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamics of Alex and Dawn’s story. It wasn’t rushed or even portrayed as being an easy, all consuming love story but one that teetered precariously with unsurety and caution.

The allure of an outsider hiding within the shadows calls to our heroine as she sees the best in what the gossiping small town locals regard as a strange lost cause.

Dawn is a vet and a single mother who is trying to make the best of a rather difficult situation. Estranged from her sister due to a past indiscretion which resulted in her daughter, Katie, Dawn has been the focus of local gossip more than she can count, so when a stranger enters the town and is shunned by the locals, she can’t help but be intrigued.

Alex is a recluse. Renovating an old log cabin in the woods, with only his best canine friend Stan for company, his severe stutter keeps others at a distance as his level of communication with strangers proves difficult.

When Stan requires a vet, Alex has no choice but to go into town and get him some help which is where our story starts as two guarded characters find a friendship and connection in one another.

There were times when I wanted Dawn to open up a little more and take a chance, but her guarded persona was justified in her circumstances. I did find it a little difficult to connect with her at times, she was all very normal.

I liked Alex, he had a dark air about him and it was fascinating to see him starting to fight that darkness and come out of his shell.

Katie was adorable and her energy gave good balance to the story. Her innocence and honesty was a breath of fresh air.

Stan is the man! I loved that mutt. He was a fundamental part of the story and even had his own voice in a chapter or two. It was fitting to the backdrop of the darker twist towards the end of the book and I commend Jane on touching on a despicable and upsetting subject. It was hard to read but I will never dismiss a raise of awareness. Very brave.

4 Crowns.

"Passion, pleasure, and princely responsibilities make this sexy fairy tale a real page turner." —Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Calendar Girl
Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness,” is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant―hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be. There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately―the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia―Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

Also by this author: Appealed (The Legal Briefs, #3), Appealed (The Legal Briefs, #3), Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs, #3.5), Royally Screwed (Royally, #1)

pp-review-kellyRoyally Screwed is a funny, sexy, lighthearted read that provides the perfect escapism. I am in awe; totally enamored with this story of duty, love and what one is willing to sacrifice in the wake of finding that soul fulfilling happiness, even if it goes against everything you have been taught.

For Nicholas Pembroke being next in line to the throne comes with huge responsibility and a respect for royal tradition. Sowing wild royal oats is a perk that has a lingering sell by date when the Queen demands he soon find a wife born from nobility and from their birth home of Wessco.

Prince Henry, the ‘spare’ has been on a permanent bender since he took leave from the armed forces. Nicholas has been given the task to bring him home, along with attending some charity events on behalf of the Queen in New York.

Olivia is a hardworking coffee shop owner in Manhattan struggling to make ends meet. When a charismatic, good looking, drunk arsehole propositions her to spend the night with him for $10,000 instead of biting his hand off, she throws pie in his face and asks him to leave. Nicholas, upon being sober realises his mistake and goes back to apologise. He is pleasantly surprised that she has no clue who he is.

Olivia can’t help but be attracted to his honest arrogance, and it’s not long before she can keep saying no to his advances, even knowing his stay is only for a short while.

From here the story really heats up with some incredibly hot scenes that are lighthearted and fun, but intimacy paves way to emotions and Olivia knows that no matter how close she gets, their time together is temporary. She cannot keep him, and Nicholas knows she can never truly be his. The heart wants what it wants, but the Crown will always come first.

This story takes our heroine from the hustle and bustle streets of New York to the elaborate Royal Palace of Wessco, but living the fairy-tale is never as it seems when a country that Nicholas was born to rule, could never open their hearts to a foreign commoner.

Love, Loyalty, Heartbreak and Sacrifice are all here, as well as the comical injection of genius that Emma Chase is known for – this book has a little bit of everything and I fell in love with it from epilogue to prologue. Unleash your inner princess and fall in love with a royal or two… trust me, you won’t regret it.

STEPSISTER.
He hated that f*cking word.
When their parents got married, the only thing Caleb Luxan had in common with Wren Brashill was that they both hated their parents. When he was sixteen, Caleb discovered Wren's closely guarded secret and vowed to protect her: from that day forward she became the reason for every decision he made.
Jealousy and long-suppressed desire overpowered Caleb's fierce protectiveness and they spent one forbidden and unforgettable night in each other arms, but the aftermath left Caleb panicked, Wren heartbroken, and their relationship in shambles. In the time since that fateful night, he’d only seen her once and had only managed to make the situation even worse.
The sudden death of his estranged father calls Caleb home and face-to-face with Wren for first time in years. He is presented with a choice that forces him to confront the painful memories of his youth and his many regrets with Wren.Like it or not, his father's last, hard lesson, will demand Caleb deal with his long denied emotions for Wren, or let go of her forever.

‘One Step Closer is a titillating, sexy, addictive read that will leave you begging for more. An absolute knock out!” ~ Kelly, Perusing Princesses Blog

If you love second chance romances then this book is for you! 

Let’s be honest here for a moment… it’s no secret that Step Brother romances have saturated the market in the last year or so, and I’ve read a few. Yes, I’ve enjoyed them, the dynamics and how that kind of relationship can change a family and put strain on the young couple destined for love is an interesting one, and One Step Closer is a truly worthy top runner.

Caleb and Wren’s story is more about protecting that love, even if it means walking away from it. Their union comes as a result of grief, emotional abuse and loneliness wrapped in wealth.

Caleb is in turmoil. His Mother being diagnosed with cancer when he was only 12, he became her rock and carer whilst his Father shunned responsibility and buried his head in work at the later stages of her illness has made Caleb angry and unforgiving of his neglect. That is only made worse by the arrival of a money grabbing new wife and her strange, introverted goth Daughter who hides in the shadows.

As time goes by, Caleb comes to realise that Wren is as lonely and angry as he is, but whereas his grudge comes from a quiet neglect, Wren’s is more sinister and Caleb vows to be her protector.

Playing the big protecting Step Brother comes with complications, the hardest one of all, is falling in love…


And my goodness, what a beautifully written journey this was. Kahlen really knows how to pull at those heartstrings and deliver a love story with substance.

Caleb and Wren’s journey is a long one that comes with complications, heartache and dedication that was a joy to behold and I implore anyone that enjoys this genre to read it!

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.They may be right.
With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.

Q: Are you trying to kill us?
No, but we love Ella so much and her adventures with the Royals that we needed to write this third book. You’ll see when you read it.
Q: Who’s in this book? And don’t say Ella!
Ella, the five Royal brothers, and a few more huge surprises.

5 Star perfection yet again from the dynamite duo! 

These Royals will ruin you, but you will enjoy every second of it!

This third book is almost impossible to review without planting spoilers because it really answers many questions whilst raising new ones in the form of ‘who did it’ that gave this book a high dose of suspense, differing in style from the previous two.

Ella has become a real favourite heroine of mine. She’s a ballsy character who has had to pick up the pieces time and time again – firstly as a young child; with a flighty Mother and little money, resilience has always been key but nothing tested her more than becoming embroiled with the Royals after her Mother lost her battle with cancer. Those precarious times are over in respect of her position within the family as she is now settled and loved by all, but none more so than Reed Royal.

Reed knows his heart, and in order to protect the ones he loves, he is desperately trying to keep Ella out of the brewing shit-storm that had been unleashed at the end of book two. Now a murder suspect, Reed’s innocence is jeopardised due to his love of fighting and reputation of carrying a short fuse, finding that proving his innocence is harder than it seems.

Ella is petrified of the investigation outcome and decides to do some detective work of her own – unfortunately it means getting close to the she-devil and a man she has only ever heard of by name.

With a boyfriend looking at jail time, a newly found over-bearing Father throwing his weight, and Brooke’s killer still very much walking the streets, for Ella and Reed it seems time is running out and only the innocent will suffer.


Princess Kelly
I really enjoyed this third installment and it was a great way to end the epic love story between Ella and Reed, albeit it was no easy ride. Twisted Palace certainly felt different to the other two books – where they focused more on Ella’s new twist of fate and the many issues plaguing the Royal boys in the aftermath of their Mothers death, this book was about coming together and finding answers, which ultimately helped them all grow closer as a family.

The secondary characters are great, and I can’t get enough of Easton, him and ‘filter’ just don’t go hand in hand and I love that about him. I’ve also been told that he will be getting his own book next which makes me a very happy bunny indeed.

But if I could take a vote (or beg…. are you listening, ladies?), I would love to learn more about Gideon. He is still very much a dark horse and closed off from the rest of the family, but after an event that transpired in this book, I’m hoping it will open doors for him and set him free, and I wanna see that man fly, (and get naked).

These Royals will ruin you, but trust me when I say, you will love every damn second of it.

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new sexy, romantic suspense standalone novel...
Daisy Smith has spent eighteen months of her life paying for a crime she didn’t commit. Now out of prison, she has only one focus—to get back custody of her younger brother, Jesse, who is deep in the foster care system. Desperate to rebuild her life and show the system that she is responsible enough to care for Jesse, she takes on the only job available to her—working as a maid at the Matis Estate.
On day one of her new job, Daisy meets Kastor Matis, the only son of the owners and her new boss. An enigmatic, handsome Greek god of a man, Kas is closed off, cold, and…well, kind of a bastard.
The more time Daisy spends around Kas, she starts to see there might be more to him than just his cold, bastard ways. He may actually have a heart beating in that frozen chest of his.
But Kas has secrets, too. Secrets that he’s determined to keep.
Secrets make Daisy curious.
And you know what curiosity can do…

‘Unsuitable is unique, compelling, emotional and packed with tantalising suspense making it one incredible un-put-down-able read. One of my favourite books of 2016!!’ – Kelly, Perusing Princesses Blog.

From that heart in your throat Prologue to the closing sentence this story had me tethered tightly within its clutches and two days later is still refusing to let go.

Daisy Smith is my hero. As far as heroines go she is up there with the best of them. Her strength, determination and loyalty is admirable given the harsh hand she had been dealt in life. I cannot tell you how many times my eyes welled up reading her story, for me she was the ultimate female lead and I loved everything about her.

Kastor Matis on the other hand is a closed book. A dark, brooding, cold, sexy bastard who treated his new ex-con maid with so much unjustified disdain that I wanted to junk punch him so hard in the early chapters. His closed off persona compared to Daisy’s willingness to succeed made an interesting and entertaining combination, albeit an emotional one too.
PK circle 200
Kas isn’t all mean though as gradually those layers start to peel and what you find beneath is truly unimaginable, giving this book a true dramatic and suspenseful theme that had me turning each page in awe.

Samantha Towle has pulled no punches with Unsuitable. It is packed with injustices, heartbreak and loss whilst retaining that glimmer of hope and a promise of second chances. Her characters completely won me over and Kas and Daisy’s story is not one I will forget anytime soon.

Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.
Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.
Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.
Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, Jackson is determined to protect her—at all costs.
Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?
Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

OMFG!!! What an ending. I am in love with this series. My review will come later, I need book 3, right the fuck now!

Two days later:

*And breathes*

This was a fantastic sequel that paved the way to stronger characterisation and a notch up on the danger scale. Jackson’s decision to walk away in the hope to protect Ana was a painful one, and with the added male POV, it really helped getting inside the head of the young man who has so much to lose in loving the broken girl from Florida.

Ana is going through the notions. The man who put her back together has walked away, and the pain from her past rears its ugly head. The need to distract herself from her internal suffering is manifesting into self-harm, reverting back to bad coping mechanisms that got her through last time. Luckily for her, she has friends who notice and just as she is getting her head back in the game, he is suddenly everywhere.

Ana and Jackson can only take so much, and desperation to be with the one you love outweighs the fear of being caught. Consequences be damned, but Braiden is watching, and it’s only a matter of time before the cards fall, and Jackson and Ana make a decision that make or break them for good.

Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 7.59.30 AM
I am really enjoying this series, and the double POV narrative was a welcome addition to this sequel in the Chastity Falls Series, if anything it highlighted Jackson’s position and the dilemma he faces in letting an outsider into the corrupt family fold.

Ana, having a deep interest in investigative journalism is on a quest for answers, and they don’t come easily, but when they do the story goes from dramatic to dangerous which creates a power ending / gripping opener for book three – I just had to dive straight in.

READ IT!

Eighteen-year-old Savanah Parry just moved three thousand miles across state to escape. The memories…the whispers…the pain.
Chastity Falls Academy is supposed to be her fresh start; her salvation. And when Ana meets mysterious Jackson, she begins to think it is. She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again.
Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a college romance and this book, by far has got me back in to full swing with young love and the emotional and dramatic consequences that come with it.

From the offset, I knew our heroine had gone through a pretty tough ordeal. Her closed off persona and reluctance to push forward with new people in one of the most important and life changing moments in a person’s life was a sure tale of buried secrets and irreparable heartbreak that told of a broken girl battling demons at a pivotal time of her life.

Savannah Parry could play her part well but nothing was getting past her new and feisty Latina roommate, Elena. To keep up the pretense Ana has no choice but to attend the college parties and initiate herself as a fully fledged freshman in one of the smaller colleges in rainy Oregon. Leaving behind her life in Florida this new start could only be a good thing, that was until him…

Braiden Donohue is a household name. Captain of the Fallen football team he is not to be messed with, or turned down by a pretty girl he has his eye on for that matter. Terrified of his obnoxious advances, Ana is saved by a man hidden in the shadows, the best friend and right hand man of the one whose family holds power over the town.

Jackson is a sweet English major who befriends Ana, proving that not all college guys are out for one thing. Never has she been made to feel again since the accident that destroyed her world but his love for Shakespeare and poetry calls to her as a very private love story unfurls. 

Braiden doesn’t forgive easily and as underground family business threatens the safety of those close, Ana finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place when her world looks to crash around her for a second time. 

And WOW… what a story this was! Yes, there is a real semblance of a deep and profound love story here but there is also a real underlying threat throughout that gave this book real dramatic impact and I’m still reeling from it.

At one point I wasn’t even sure if that undercurrent of fear was of the paranormal kind which proves that this story did keep you a little on your toes.

Jackson and Ana’s story is very much a modern day Romeo and Juliette, the likes of which I have come to adore but also hate due to hidden circumstances that threaten the very foundation of it. Life doesn’t always have happy endings but you literally hope and pray these characters find it.

L.A Cotton has done a fantastic job in creating a college romance with a twisted dark undertone that appealed even to a mature reader – I’m already halfway through the sequel and it only gets better.

Dear E.K Blair

This is a new concept of book reviewing for me, but I felt the need to do something different, therefore I’ve decided to write you a letter.

I’m going to start off by saying you are one incredibly gifted, gutsy lady and I applaud you for writing such an honest, deep, and at times shocking account of the ultimate betrayal.

Reading this felt like diving into that little black book, a sexual diary with no filter and a total disregard of the consequences.

Did I love our Victoria aka Madilyn Kline? No, I didn’t. Like many readers, her betrayal was a bitter pill to swallow and not one I can condone, but what I will say is as a woman I could understand her need of escapism. Victoria is a writer, a weaver of words and a fantasist, to act upon those fantasies and taste the bite of forbidden fruit is not a crime, but a personal choice. That choice came with consequences, such as excitement, pleasure, guilt, lies and ultimately heartbreak. The way you weaved this story into one of sexual obsession was a real page turner and I take my hat off to you for taking the bull by the horns and putting this story out there. This author, whomever she is, was right to trust you with her story. And you know what, even if this is a marketing ploy which many have accused you of, it’s a genius move. Only you know the truth, and girl, hold onto it as tightly as you can.

As for our male counterpart, I could respect his penchant for honesty but I was never really sure what to make of him. His opening conversation of ‘why so secretive’ was ironic in a sense, because that was how I felt about him, he was pretty much a closed book whilst being a killer in the sheets. I can’t say he didn’t intrigue me, because he really did and stone me dead but I saw the appeal, I got it even though I believe she was more invested emotionally. I say emotionally, she lost herself completely and she will be the first to admit that.

Author Anonymous is that book that get tongues wagging and speculation coming from every corner, but from what I can tell the backlash has been unprecedented and completely unjust. This is a story that you had every right to tell, and even though it states this is a true story, it doesn’t mean that every reader has automatically gained a key to unlocking the mystery because that’s not what this story is about. Yes, I admit it won’t be to everyone’s taste, and for many cheating is a hard limit but that’s life. Life isn’t always sunbeams and rainbows, sometimes it’s challenging and hard. Many of us live each day best we can but that doesn’t mean someone or something is going to come along one day and throw you completely off your axis, turning your world upside down – that is what this book represents to me; it is a story of life’s trials and the concept that acting on ‘more’ may not necessarily be better; in this case it was a sure recipe for disaster and heartbreak.

There are no monsters here, just humans.

With utmost respect.

Yours Sincerely

Kelly – Perusing Princesses

Ravage is a compelling, twisted and addictive dark read and another great instalment in the Scarred Souls series.

‘I had survived the massacre that took my family, but lying here, I realised that the years spent away in hiding I was simply existing. And it took a monster to revive my heart. It took a killer to touch my soul.’ – Zoya

It all started with RAZE; my beautiful broken Bratva, it continued with REAP as we saw two notorious Russian crime families unite in the name of forbidden love, and now Tillie has given us our most tortured character of all in RAVAGE.

At only 12-years-old, Valentin swore to protect his 4-year-old sister from the monsters in the night. Having been subjected to neglect due to a junkie Mother, Valentin and Inessa were two forgotten children living out their days in an orphanage; a place that should have protected them.

They came in the night, the woman in black and the night wraiths that took innocent children away never to be seen again. Valentin head the whispers and for many months managed to thwart the gang by hiding in a secret place with his little sister, until one night his plans where scarpered.

Subjected to severe abuse and slavery and drugged with a manmade cocktail of narcotics that made him obey the most repulsive commands, Valentin became just another number in the underworld of death, that number was #194.

Brutal, scarred and a walking nightmare, #194 also had a secret; he never forgot who he was and what his Mistress has put them through, and one day promises revenge on them all. One last mission, one last hit and the promise of freedom may be in vain but it’s all he can hope for, for his sister’s sake – anything to get her out of the clutches of the Master.

PK circle 200

Zoya Kostava is a Georgian princess. Having watched her family die in a massacred attack and barely getting out alive herself, she has been living in fear and secrecy her entire life. When she hears that her only blood relative and favourite Brother has been found alive and in the company of the enemy, Zoya puts her own safety aside as she seeks out to meet him. Her plans go awry when a fearsome scarred monster captures her spying on his new target.

#194 puts the strange girl through her paces, knowing that one day soon she will break and tell him who she really is, but he never expected her story to resonate so deeply with him.

Two scarred and lost souls find each-other in the most terrifying and darkest of circumstances, as they fight for the freedom they never had and a love believed forever lost to them both.

RAVAGE was another compelling, dark, brutal and twisted read that still managed to capture an innocent and deeply passionate light. Wherever Tillie Cole goes, I am sure to eagerly follow as again, I cannot recommend this series, or her work highly enough.

The Bratva and Georgian fight is on but things are starting to take an exciting and detrimental turn, all in the name of love, brotherhood and ultimately…. Revenge.

I can’t wait for Inessa’s story, coming next!

It has been two days since I finished Deep Redemption and I haven’t picked up another  book since. It is no secret that I adore Tillie Cole; her ability to bleed words onto the page make for an unforgettable reading experience and Deep Redemption did not disappoint, proof that this series just goes from strength to strength.

Rider’s story was the one that I knew would come with a health warning. You cannot betray your MC Brothers and turncoat without going unpunished for your sins. Rider knew it, has accepted there can be no going back and yet as he sits in a dark cell, ashamed, broken and betrayed by his own blood, the prospect of ever finding freedom and being part of a family again turns his destined dream into a living nightmare.

The thought of such abhorrent child abuse acted in gods name within the commune he was destined to lead defies everything he is. Regardless of the Order teachings, Cain could never condone such brutality and in turn has branded him a traitor.

Judas has duped the commune and stolen his twin Brothers identity in order to enact revenge on the Hades Hangmen MC for killing the Elders in the previous book.

Desperate to escape and protect the innocent from his Brothers madness it seems all hope is lost, until her.

PK circle 400

Harmony has arrived from another commune and upon being branded a cursed is thrown in the cell next to Cain. Never revealing his true identity he gives her his road name, Rider as they become acquainted through the wall with quiet whispers.

Harmony may be a cursed but coming from a different commune their ways differed vastly from this new one in Texas. Living in a dark cell may not have been the welcome party she hoped for but Harmony didn’t come alone, she has friends, and those may be their only chance.

But escaping a cell is one thing, bringing down the commune and helping the innocent is another entirely. There may be a way… One way, but for Rider it will be like opening the gates to hell itself.

And OMG I have to say, out of all the Hangmen MC books, Rider is the character who is the most fearless and compassionate. His connection with Harmony is based on trust, hope and a determination to survive the unjust horrors thrown upon them since birth. To escape a world within a world knowing the outside could still prove just as damning.

This book is a non stop fight for freedom and survival whilst nurturing a love story that becomes so vivid and beautifully passionate I just couldn’t put this book down. The depth of emotion, pain and guilt makes way for strength and unrivalled determination as we see this series give birth to our strongest heroine yet. This woman isn’t no pushover, her love for Rider literally turns her into a force to be reckoned with and I absolutely loved her. Compared to the quiet Maddie, tortured Lilah and voice of reason, Mae, Harmony is the spine, the crutch that holds it all together and as a huge fan of this series  it was much welcomed.

Rider,  I can’t tell you what this guy goes through but I can tell you he’s my hero. I cried for him, I learned to respect him, he certainly redeemed himself in my eyes and pushed a brilliant series to a whole new level. I didn’t think much would rival Flame and Maddie’s story but this is up there as one of the best. Tillie Cole does it again!

These Royals will ruin you…
From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.
Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.
What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.
Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.
She might be right.
Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.

The Royals are back and their high-school hierarchy is about to be tested, loyalty and the bond between Brothers is questioned and love is balancing on a precariously fine edge.

Broken Prince starts where Paper Princess ended, and those of you who have read it know how that one fared on the cliffy Richter-scale. I have been waiting ever so impatiently for this book and trust me when I say, the wait was worth it!

Ella is gone; after finding the man she loves with his own Fathers ex-girlfriend in a very compromising position, the hurt and betrayal is too much for the girl who fell desperately in love with her tormentor as she flees with a view of never returning.

PK circle 400

Reed Royal is furious at how those final moments unfolded and he has a lot of explaining to do, and he will, once he finds the girl who changed his life for the better. With Ella’s disappearance and the knowledge that it was his fault, for the first time the cracks are starting to show, at home and school as the Brothers go at each others throats like never before. Gideon is the only one who believes Ella is better off out of it, whilst Easton feels betrayed by the girl he considered his best friend. Reed is pissed and heartbroken and the twins are becoming more distant by the day.

Callum Reed is concerned for Ella and hires his best P.A to find his ward before she disappears forever, or worse, ends up dead.

Ella has vowed to never return, but when Callum catches up with her and blackmails her into coming back, she makes a decision to return knowing she only needs to make it two-years before college and legal access to her large inheritance. Easy… Until she sets foot into chaos, and realises that her leaving has put an incredible strain on not only the family, but on her own reputation.

Blackmail, betrayal, lust, hate, and love all play a riveting and fundamental part in this stunning sequel that will have you routing for your favourite couple and hoping like hell the enemies and new number one tormentor get their karma in the most unpleasant of ways.

Reed Royal is a great character whose fierce need to protect his family and the girl he loves knows no boundaries – even succumbing to the possibility that things will never be the same again, he steps up to the plate and promises to fight until the very end and I found his actions commendable. He’s an absolute hotty and after reading this sequel I love him more than ever.

Ella Harper is back and she’s not taking any prisoners. Even when the number one high school bitch takes things too far, her retorts are cutting and witty, all the while with a smile on her face and her head held high. I love a strong heroine and by the end of this book, I’m pretty sure you will have a whole new respect for her too.

For me though, Easton is my broken prince in this story, he is the most destructive and hurting in more ways than you can possibly imagine. Deep down he is that lost boy who misses his Mother and secretly craves his Father’s respect, and I hope he gets his own story on what is fast becoming one of my favourite YA contemporary series’ ever!

 

If you loved Paper Princess, you will love Broken Prince and that ending… OMG! Another hit on that Richter-scale peeps, but what a great opening and a thickened plot for book 3. I. CAN’T. WAIT! READ IT!

4.5 Stars

Take one last ride with Keiran and Lake and the rest of the Broken Love gang in this fifth and final installment as they face stronger enemies and bigger obstacles while fighting to hold tight to the tattered existence of their love.
When faced with broken love…
Have you ever had the feeling you were a stranger? Out of reach, I watched and mourned me. Nothing moved. Breathed. Nothing lived. I was in an alternate universe. No longer an innocent. I had blood on my hands, and I wasn’t even sorry for it. I was only afraid for Keiran. Of his reaction when the shock wore off. It would be an explosion. Of hurt, anger, and mistrust. He’d know I lied. And to him… The betrayal born of my good intentions is worse than the act of murder.
…will you succumb to fear…
She was supposed to be my light. The one who saved me from the monster. But when I looked in her eyes that day, I didn’t see her. I only saw my father’s killer.
Her love saved me from the monster. Mine turned her into one.
…or will you be fearless?

What a series finale! I swear to all that is sexy and sinfully unholy I have a severe case of whiplash after this final instalment. Lake Monroe is my hero’ine’! From kidnap to prison, to mending the shattered pieces of a past that still haunts, Keiran and Lake still have some precarious bridges to cross, only this time there is no going back…

The gang are back together one final time for what is the closing chapter of an epic series. This series incorporated everything I long for… hate to lust, the need to possess, protect, love… and ultimately, kill. What started in Fear Me as a toxic love story hell bent on revenge, turned into an all – consuming, passionate love story that will stand up against any obstacle, even the threat of death.

Angst-ridden, sexy, addictive and totally alpha – The Broken Love series is an unmissable treat. Read this series, now!

Another incredible instalment in the Broken Love series. It was great to finally understand Dash and Willow’s relationship, one that started with cruel intentions turned into the unfathomable… Love, obsession, hurt, betrayal and understanding. Willow may have been the ‘best friend’ and wild card but she is tough and I loved her endurance when faced with life – threatening situations.

Dash has certainly grown into his own. Gone is the high-school pillar of strength, now a CEO of a multi – national conglomerate he has wealth, power and an insatiable need to finally take what is his, but nobody said it was going to be easy.

The plot thickens in this book, and with more bodies on the pile it is still abundantly clear that nobody is safe… but nothing prepared me for that ending!! OMFG!

KEENAN
It’s been four years since I ran away—from home, my brother, and my maybe father. I created a life free of expectations while pretending I wasn’t being hunted by all of the above. I managed to stay under the radar all this time… or so I thought. When big brother shows up and saves my ass, I’m forced to face everything I left behind, including her.
SHELDON
It’s been four years since I became another statistic. I made a lot of mistakes when it came to Keenan Masters. The first was loving him at all. He took something from me the night he left, and when I told him I still loved him, he told me he’d always hate me. After that, I learned how to be okay… until he came back. Gone was the boy who always knew how to make me laugh, and in his place was a cold, arrogant monster.

Where has my sweet Keenan gone?

I had mixed emotions with this book, I did enjoy it and read it within a day but I was concerned at first that it was another Keiran and Lake do-over. I felt Keenan was trying too hard to be like his now estranged and dangerous sibling, although my concerns changed later on in the book when those glimpses of the real Keenan started to shine.

Sheldon is now a woman with huge responsibilities. A failure to her high social standing parents, her only saving grace is the support from her twin Brother Dash, and her highly dysfunctional close friends.

Secretly pining for the man she walked away from to protect her heart is a regret she has everyday, so when he comes plummeting back into her life, secrets are revealed and with it a turmoil of hurt and betrayal.

PK circle 400

When Keenan’s thirst for revenge takes over, Sheldon is planted firmly in the firing line. She doesn’t recognise the boy she loved in high school, all she sees is the cold, calculating monster as he keeps her prisoner in his home in LA. There is only one thing that can unite them, they just have to hope that it isn’t too late.

I can’t give that clue away for fear of spoilers but I can tell you how much this story threw me for a loop. Keenan’s bitterness aside, what Sheldon also goes through is every woman’s nightmare but it didn’t stop me from being riveted from the start.

Another twisty, gripping, lust-filled read from the amazing BB Reid.

I really am in love with this series. Onto book 4!

I love a book that pushes boundaries, makes you question your own morals and the authors sanity. Keiran is a very disturbed and complex character and yet I was so intrigued by him. Lake, the victimised innocent girl whose life was ruled by a boy whose hatred shone so bright, her only way to survive was live each day in fear, but with age comes new obstacles and the boy who hated and the girl who feared becomes a battle of frenzied and confusing well of lust and obsession. 

I can’t say I loved every minute of this book, it truly made me uncomfortable at times but I knew there was more to the desperately angry young man but I didn’t quite expect that backstory! You wish you can hate him but in the end you just find yourself becoming obsessed with his benevolence because you wanted Lake to either break through or break out and teetering on that edge of the unknown is what made this book for me. Lake was always on a mission of fight or flight, but you just didn’t know what way it was going to go and that ending had me reaching for book two in an instant.

We have had the pleasure of sexy, intimidating alphas in King and Bear, now it’s time for them to take a back seat as we bow down to this ultimate kick-ass heroine, Rage. I loved this germophobe, OCD, ball-busting character in Soulless and I was thrilled when I heard she was getting her own book, and by all that is explosive, murderous and very ungodly, All the Rage did not disappoint.

From a lost young girl with no Hope of ever feeling normal, to a woman who finally embraced her dangerous side to become one of the most feared assassins in the Floridian State. Dubbed the Angel of Death by many, Rage is known for her calculating, cold professional demeanour. She no more batters an eyelash at pulling the trigger than she does changing her scooter headlight. No remorse. No Prisoners. No regrets. Making her one of the most respected in the business.

Leaving her home and her only friend, Cody, at sixteen, Rage was taught everything she knows by her mentor and friend, Smoke; a nomad contractor whose loyalties lie with no-one. And he has taught her well.

When a new job comes in to grill a young ice hockey player for information on his parents, Smoke knows just the person for the job. Rage hates babysitting duty but she owes Smoke everything, and reluctantly agrees to the new position at hand.

Nolan is cursing the fates that be. In one moment he is destined for a scholarship and career in the NHL, the next bound to a wheelchair with a leg cast after a calculated knife attack. His career seems over before it has even began.

Still recovering from the loss of his grandparents, Nolan finds refuge and solace staying in their beach side home with his little French bulldog, Murray.

After a near fatal drowning incident, Nolan is thankful to the beautiful blond girl who pulled him from the depths, only to have his thanks thrown back at him with contempt. Rage (Short for Regina), never wanted to play the hero but if it means getting answers then it is what the job requires.

She never expected him to be open to her quirks, find her amusing, beautiful or sexy. Her secret is what keeps him alive, but what Rage isn’t counting on is Nolan having secrets of his own, and ones that don’t seem too dissimilar from the world in which she resides…

All the Rage is a gripping, pure adrenaline rush of a read that flays open a disturbed and complex character shedding light on how she became to be. She may be one crazy, unconventional bitch, but it takes a strong and possibly crazier man to reign in the ‘rage’ and Nolan will have you running rings; he really is something else and what a wonderful surprise he was too. He is anything but ordinary.

An amazing standalone read that compliments the King series perfectly.

Damon Atwood was Hollywood’s golden boy. Having won an Oscar at the tender age of thirteen, he had the life many could only dream about. But his success came at a price, and after a short but fruitful film career, he chose to live a life of obscurity on a remote Scottish island. Almost a decade later he’s finally ready to make his return, starting with a lead role in a musical on London’s West End.
As a choreographer’s assistant, Rose Taylor has always faded into the background. She watches shows come to life from the side lines, but has never craved the attention of stardom. When rumours begin circulating of Damon’s involvement in her latest gig, she doesn’t predict how she will be thrust into the limelight, nor how the mysterious and strangely introverted man will need her to teach him how to be a star again.
Rose knows that show crushes don’t last. Actors fall for each other during the intensity of a production, often losing themselves in their roles. These kinds of affairs burn bright and then they fade. The question is, should Rose let herself shine with Damon, or guard her heart from being broken after the final curtain call?

Showmance is a stunning portrayal of love and friendship written in a provocative, sexy and sympathetic prose that delivers in every way.

L.H Cosway is a story nurturer, her characters grow, finding themselves and strength in each other and as a reader we get to connect so vividly, so ardently to the pressures, fears and undeniable attractions that we are literally swept up in a whirlwind of the very best kind.

Rose and Damon’s story is very much founded on friendship, understanding, trust and loyalty whilst battling inner hardships and past demons that continue to plague even the most talented and kind-hearted.

Damon Atwood seemed to have it all from a very young age. A respected and much loved childhood actor, winning an Oscar set his career soaring, that is until he disappeared from the limelight to live a life of recluse in the Isle of Skye with his beloved Grandmother.

Her passing has left a gaping hole, and ten years later it is time to find himself again, but not in the bright lights of Hollywood, but on a live stage in the London West-End.

Rose hasn’t had the most conventional upbringing. Her roommate Julian understands that all too well as they both find affection and solace within the arms of others. Rose loves too easily, whereas Julian struggles to find love at all. They are the perfect Yin and Yang and their friendship, although forged as children is the only safe haven they know. Despite all this she is a highly accomplished dancer and choreographer about to embark on a new project; Moulin Rouge.

She never wanted to see her actor ex again, certainly not on this new production after the way he cast her aside, and she certainly never expected to be completely enamored by the dark,  brooding reclusive main lead. Her heart is bruised and her head is telling her to not get involved again, yet she sees the vulnerability in his eyes and his awkwardness that mirrors her own and that alluring pull is a calling siren as two remarkably talented people learn what it means to truly connect for the first time at a pivotal time in their lives.

This book was a wondrous joy to read. A slow build love story with enough sexual tension to raise the theatre roof. You root for them from the start and the way the author nurtured their journey to one another whilst highlighting the stage production of Moulin Rouge and their character connection was an awakening and truly enjoyable experience. To say Damon Atwood dazzled me would be an understatement, I actually love him.

L.H Cosway has firmly planted herself in my favourite contemporary indie author list and I cannot wait for Julian’s story in the sequel coming in 2017.
