ARC Review of “Vlad: The V Games Series”, by Ker Dukey and K Webster @KerDukeyauthor @KristiWebster @IndieSagePR

Wow!! Talk about a dark mafia man. Vlad is one cool, dark, smooth man. He is controlled most of the time, but when that control is lost, he is one mean, dark, bad mafia man.

This story was very well written and it really drew me in. The fact that Vlad was a man who has multiple sides, and is in control of the dark sides most of the time, make him a dangerous man. He is loyal to those whose trust he has, but if you cross him, you are not going to be a happy person, you may not live to tell about it either.

Vlad Vasiliev, the oldest of three in one of the First Families of the Russian Mafia. His family is actually at the top of the chain. His younger brother, Viktor and sister, Vika, twins, are two very different people. Vlad is close to his brother, but Vika is a conniving, vengeful young lady who will go to any length to get what she wants in life, even have people killed. Viktor is a young man who is sure of who he is and where he belongs in life without being a murderer, or conniving, but is he too confident in his abilities?

Diana Volkov, is the oldest child in the third in line of the First Families. She is smart, strong-willed, and a great business woman. She is to marry Vlad to bring strength to the families and to help the Vasiliev’s gain more land. There is no love between Vlad and Diana, but they are both the oldest in the families and know their duty to the family as well as the Families in general. Diana doesn’t expect for her secret to come out and she definitely doesn’t expect what happens to her when it comes to light. Diana’s younger sister Irena, Shadow, is the one Vlad really wants. She was always in Diana’s shadow growing up, so she earned the nick name.

I really liked this story and can’t wait to read more about the families. The story was well developed and the characters were powerful. Great story, Ker Dukey and K Webster. I look forward to reading more. I give this story a 5 star review.

ARC Review of “Darkest Hour”, by Bella Jewell @givemebooksblog @BellaJewel73

RB Banner

Wow! Bella Jewell has done a great job with this story. I love it. This is the first story I’ve read in the Iron Fury MC Series, but it will not be the last. I now need to go back and and read the first two to find out how Malakai and Mag found their women.

Dakota is such a dark, strong, brooding man, but when he meets Charlie and has to protect her, you see a different Kota. It is so true that our past can shape us, and sometimes it is not for the good. Kota has a lot of darkness in him since his first meeting with Shanks, and he will not be able to change who he has become until he finally sees how Charlie can help him and bring him back to life. Dakota is the VP of the Iron Fury MC and is the MC is now his family, but will his need for revenge and his secrecy destroy the trust they have in Kota?

Charlie, a strong woman who needs to find her own way in life after the tragic life she has lived in her fathers house. Having a father who only strives for power and shows no love or care for his family would make anyone a hard, thoughtless person, but Charlie is not anyone and she has a conscience. She knows she has done some bad things, but she also knows that if she had not done those things she would not have survived. She’s a survivor and a woman who doesn’t take sh*t from anyone.

I look forward to reading more of this series and finding out more about Kota and Charlie’s life as well as how the MC handles the deception from Dakota. I give this a 4.5 star review and strongly suggest this book to anyone who likes to read about strong men and women who will do anything to protect those they love and consider their family, whether through blood or choice.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

ARC Review of “Gods & Monsters”, by Saffron A Kent @givemebooksblog @SaffronAKent

Holy Cow! Such a touching, angsty, and great book. It is probably going to be a memorable book for me for this year. It has such a touching story, and well rounded and developed characters.

Evangeline Elizabeth Hart, (Evie, Pixie) a young girl who sees color in everything she looks at. She is the daughter of a very religious mother and a father who wants to keep the peace with his wife, so he doesn’t argue with her or stick up for Evie when she gets into trouble. Evie’s mother is abusive and judgmental, but Evie doesn’t let it bother her or  lead her to be the same way. She loves chocolate, writing in her journals, sitting in her treehouse, and spending time with her best friend, Skylar, Sky. “Sky is a girl who needs weapons in her life”. According to Evie, “Sky is bloodthirsty and hates everyone”, especially Duke Knight.

Abel Adams, an orphan who is brought to the little town that Evie lives in to live with his uncle that he has never met. Abel’s parents died, and he has to move to this little town. He is angry and feels lost. He is the son of a couple who should have never fallen in love and had children. He is considered to be a monster child, even before he moved here, he had this hanging over him. Everyone in town looks at him and treats him as if he is a monster, except Mr. B and Evie. Although, Evie should stay away from him because her mother will never let them near each other. He is a loner, artist, and photographer, and Evie is his muse.

This was my first book to read by Saffron A. Kent, and I look forward to reading more. Especially God Amongst Men. I was hoping that she would write Sky and Duke’s story, and it looks like my hopes will be fulfilled in fall 2018. I give this book a 5 star review and would recommend it to anyone.

I loved this book and I loved the story. It has great characters, dialog, and a beautiful story. It shows how people are human and is a great story to read in this day and time with the hate that is going on in the world. It shows how hate can be destructive and hurtful. I loved one specific quote towards the end of the book, “It’s not the judgement of other we should be worried about. It’s the judgement we place on ourselves. It’s the fact that it’s you sitting in the dark, inside a small box, all alone. It’s you who’s gotta bear the shame of your sins while the world is moving”. It is such a powerful and honest statement.

ARC Review of “Heart Stronger” by Rachel Blaufeld @rachelblaufeld ‏

This was a great story. I loved how the characters were written and how their meeting seemed to be fate,  and their lives ended up being so intertwined.

Aiken Fordham, a man who is looking for answers and his mother. Moves into a quint little place in Pennsylvania, where his mother grew up and returned to after leaving him and his father when Aiken was very young. He is now thirty years old, but he needs to know where his mom went, and why she left. Meeting the beautiful college professor next door, is just a bonus.

Claire Richards, a college professor, divorcee, woman who is still reeling from the death of her little girl three years ago. She just can’t seem to move on from the tragic day she lost her little girl. She needs closure and she never got it. Who was behind the terrible tragedy that took her little girl from her? She needs to be teaching this summer to keep her busy and her mind on other things. Her dog Smitty is friendlier than she is when she meets her new neighbor for the first time. She’s not ready to share anything about her life, especially with a stranger, and someone who makes her heart beat so quickly.

Aiken and Claire have a lot to work through if they want to share their lives and have their happily ever after. Claire’s best friend and boss, Mary, has Claire’s best interests in mind when she doesn’t schedule her to teach for the summer, and she will work behind Claire’s back to help Aiken win her heart. Can Aiken and Claire put their pasts behind them and live for the future? There are a few twists through this story and a bit of hotness as well. I give this book a 5 star review. It is well written and the characters are well formed and very likable.

What happens when an outlaw biker’s obsession puts him between a beautiful nurse and her vicious stalker?



When a brutal attack sent him rolling on a gurney into a beautiful nurse’s life, the chance encounter seemed like a dream come true. She patched him up and gave him a reason to believe in love again, shining light into his dark and dangerous world.

There’s only one problem… She’s on the run from a violent past that’s about to catch up with her in the form of an ex-husband who’s used to getting what he wants—no matter what stands in his way. It might get him killed, but Ryder’s never backed down from a fight, and this is one he’s determined to win.

Starting over isn’t easy. Years of learning new towns, new people, and new jobs have left Tiffany tired, lonely, and ready to give up. Until a hot, sexy, bad-boy biker barreled into her life and she fell…hard. Latching onto the over-protective biker seemed like a good way to escape her daunting past, but life is never that simple.

Club life isn’t what Tiffany imagined it to be, and she soon realizes that her hot new man has a long and wild history that may be more than she bargained for. Between the women and rumors of violence, she finds herself caught between a psychotic ex bent on her destruction and the man who isn’t what she thought him to be. When things quickly begin to unravel, Tiffany doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn.

Gods _ Monsters Ebook Cover


He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil’s spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family’s warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn’t.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.

NOTE: This is NOT a paranormal or a priest romance.

Writer of bad romances. Aspiring Lana Del Rey of the Book World.

Saffron is a big believer in love (obviously). She believes in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But she also believes in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. She believes in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love she writes about is flawed just like her characters. And she hopes by the end of it, you’ll come to root for them just as much as she does. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
