Author: Elle Thorpe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Kassi Jean Formatting and Design
 Release Date: September 20, 2018

I made a mistake that might have ruined
someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from
the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain
that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual
sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with
my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate
him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain
and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
All she wanted was one night. That, I could
do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me.
With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too
impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar.
Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t
think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell
her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I
also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m
falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

Elle Thorpe lives on the sunny east coast of Australia,
about an hour out of Sydney. When she’s not writing stories full of kissing and
chemistry, she’s a wife, and mummy to three tiny humans. She’s also official ball
thrower to one slobbery dog named Rollo. Yes, she named a female dog after a
male character on Vikings. Don’t judge her. Elle is a complete and utter
fangirl at heart, obsessing over The Walking Dead and Outlander to an unhealthy
degree. But she wouldn’t change a thing.

M. Malone

M. Malone

NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master’s degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she’s using her expensive education.

Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella “Teasing Trent,” her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

She’s now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.


Nana Malone

Nana Malone

USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she “borrowed” from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.

My Review:

The Malone’s did a great job again in this story. I loved the way that the characters are so real, down to earth, and likable. Nana and Minx do a great job with their characters. I always like them and feel as if they are so real.

Talia and Cage are both ready for a new life and to move on from their pasts. The only difference is that they have a past together and their future is not supposed to entail them being together. Cage is Talia’s older brothers best friend and she should be off limits to him. Talia can’t get over the kiss Cage and her shared when she was 15 years old. Cage has always wanted Talia, but he knew that Travis, Talia’s older brother and Cage’s best friend would not like it. Travis has always been over protective of Talia and has asked Cage to keep an eye on her while she is at college where Cage attends.

Cage has no idea that Talia returns his feelings or that she has always harbored a crush on him. He wants Talia and he will not give up until she is his. He shouldn’t want another relationship since he just got out of a three year relationship with someone who always got what she wanted, no matter how she went about it. She’s spoiled and crazy, two very bad things to be combined in one person.

I liked this story and enjoyed the fact that the guy was the one who pursued the girl. Talia was determined that she was not going to go down that road again, but one kiss from Cage and that was thrown out the window.

I give this story a 4 star review. I wished that the story would have continued on with the story of Travis finding out about his little sister and his best friend. Perhaps it will be in the next book, Wanton.  I always enjoy reading stories by the Malone’s and look forward to more in the future. This was a quick read, but it was packed with a story.

“Are you looking for the cheerleading tryouts, sweetheart?”

Zeke Kingston is the arrogant, tattooed, and sinful coach of Boston University’s women’s football team. And I’m their new quarterback.

From the moment the dark and broody hunk mistook me for a cheerleader we’ve clashed. His smirking lips make my blood boil and his god-like muscles turn my knees weak.

Everything about us is off limits, but lines are blurring and temptations have become too hard to resist.

Being together breaks all the rules, but what happens when the rules no longer matter?

Caesar and Aria are a time bomb waiting to go off. They both have issues that they carry with them at all times and they both generally get what they want, even if they have to be deceitful to get it. I love these two together, they are perfect together and bring out the best in each other. They can be a powerful team if they can get past their hurt and betrayal from the ones that should have loved them.

There are so many parts in this story that had me cheering these two on. I loved how they didn’t shy away from anything when they were after what they wanted. Their destructive ways and confidence is what really made these two characters for me. They each had their loyal friends and their confidants, but they were also loners. The fact that they were both survivors and fought so hard for their place in life made them special. There are some touchy subjects in this story, but the way they were written was great. The unspoken hurt from their past and the betrayal of those they thought should protect them and keep them safe made these two who they are and they are perfect.

I loved this story and really hope there is more to Caesar and Aria in the future. I would also like to read more about Cain and Nico. I think their loyalty and friendship to these characters really added to the story. I give this story a 4.5 star review and look forward to more stories from Bethany-Kris


Dishonored Teaser 4

Caesar wasn’t sitting in his spot for more than two minutes before a girl in a tight, black bodycon dress and sky-high red heels came to deliver his drink. She flashed him a sensual smile as her hand came to rest on her hip. His gaze drifted over her to take her in—she was sexy enough, as far as that went, but nothing stirred him to act.
“Anything else I can help you with?” she asked. “Maverick said to make sure you were pleased.”
Caesar offered the woman a charming smile. “For now, I am. Grazie, bella.”
Her brow lifted at his Italian, and she grinned a bit. Women always did like it when the foreign language came out to play—Caesar never really understood the appeal. He could make a woman come just as well in English as he could in Italian. Who fucking cared what he was actually saying while they were riding his dick?
“Just let me know,” the woman all but purred.
He might.
Not tonight.
All it took was a flick of his hand, and the girl was gone. Maverick had trained his staff well, and the girls were used to being either the center of attention when it came to a patron, or dismissed altogether. Caesar usually fell into the latter category here because there was always something a little more interesting that came along to catch his eye.
Like that right there—damn.
The woman sitting on a couch just across from his had entirely passed his view as he scanned the club, and right then, she seemed entirely oblivious to him as well. Caesar liked that because if nothing else, it gave him the time to peruse her.
And damn, was she a sight to see.
The body-hugging gold dress draped over her shoulders dipped low enough in the front to give him a peek at ample, perky tits, and collarbones that made his dick hard. Yeah, he had a thing for those—liked to bite them, really.
A slit in the skirt of the short dress came up to her thigh, and when she crossed her legs, he swore he saw a flash of bright red lace hiding beneath. God save me. He would have groaned out loud if he were a lesser man, honestly. Anything red or lace was his weakness, and he wasn’t even ashamed to admit it.
Her black fuck-me heels helped to give her long, smooth legs the kind of promise that whispered they would look even better wrapped around his waist or head. Shit, he wasn’t fucking picky—she could even have it both ways, if she wanted.
The woman’s painted red lips and brown-copper curls framed delicate features, soft lips, and wide green eyes. Her gaze was darkened by smoky makeup he suddenly had every dark urge to smudge and ruin, and he wondered what that shade of lipstick she wore might look like when it was a ring at the base of his dick.
Wow, yeah.
He needed to get laid.
By that female right there.
As though she could feel his eyes on her, the woman turned her head from whatever had caught her attention, and her gaze landed directly on Caesar. Those small lips of hers curved in the most wicked way as her green orbs took him in from head to toe. He knew what she was seeing—women usually liked what they looked at when it came to Caesar, and he did aim to fucking please.
Black Armani.
Italian leather loafers.
Gold rings on every finger.
A let-me-fuck-you smile.
Sometimes, he could get them with just that smile of his alone.
Unashamed, the woman kept staring. Caesar lifted a single brow, and then pointed a single finger to the drink in her hand. Something red, by the looks of the little bit left in the glass. Probably sweet, but still enough bite to get her buzzed enough not to taste it. Her stiletto red—the same shade as her lips—fingernails tapped a beat against the glass.
“You want another one of those?” he asked.
Even over the thrumming bass from the music, and the noise of the club, he could tell she had heard him just fine by the way her nose crinkled a bit.
“No, thank you.”
Caesar stiffened at her voice.
Soft, sure.
But silken.
Like the words stroked her lips with each one she spoke, and they probably tasted like sex coming out.
But it wasn’t even that which made him pause. No, it was the hint of the accent in the background of her words—Italian.
“Care to join me?” he asked.
The woman gave him a second look, and then nodded. It wasn’t a blink and a breath in time before she was gracefully standing from her own couch, and crossing to join him on his. He couldn’t help but take in the way her trim waist melted into shapely thighs. All that golden skin of hers looked good enough to fucking eat.
“You looked lonely,” he said to her after she had rested back on his couch. “Couldn’t have a beautiful woman being sad on my watch.”
The woman shrugged. “My husband flaked.”
Oh, Christ.
God was good to him.
He was the worst kind of sinner.
And God still loved him.
At least, for tonight.

Dishonored Teaser 1SYNOPSIS
Sex is his weapon.
Power is her drug.

Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it—so be it.

The problem is … she just wasn’t prepared for all of him.

Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen’s plans in her effort to gain power, but he’s a better player than she knows.

The thing is … women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.

Philadelphia isn’t ready for game these two are playing—the sacrifices they make might not be worth it in the end, and someone will always lose in a war.

They’re broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there’s a monster at his back who made him that way.

And monsters like those hide in plain sight.

Note: This is a standalone romance with content that some might find triggering. Be warned, and read with caution.

Review of “Beast”, by Alana Albertson @AlanaAlbertson

A man who was wounded in war by saving his friends and team members from death finds the one woman who looks beyond the scars and temper to find the real man beneath it all and falls in love with him. She’s a woman who has had her share of being seen as only what is on the outside.

Grady “Beast” Williams is a marine who is trying to find himself now that he may be medically discharged from the Marine Corps due to his injuries. He can’t see his life beyond the Corps and the only position he has ever wanted in the Marine Corps is no longer a possibility. Where is his life going? His heroism has opened other doors, but he doesn’t want to go through those doors because of his injuries.

Isabella Cuesta a woman who has a secret and left her public life to be a normal person. She needs money to finish her final college semester because her father decided to dip into her college fund. Isabella is a woman who doesn’t let too many people into her life and she keeps a lot close to her. She will learn that sometimes the people that we least expect to be good for us are the people we need in our lives.

This is a story of Beauty and the Beast in more than one way. Not only from the outside but also from the inside. It’s a true likeness to the story of Beauty and the Beast because Beast not only looks like a monster, he acts like one too most of the time because he’s too afraid to be hurt by people. The only people he lets into his life are the men served with and saved. I loved this story as I do all of Alana’s stories that I’ve read. The men are Alpha males, strong, sexy and sweet, although you wouldn’t know that until you got to know them. I give this story a 5 star review and look forward to more of Alana’s books in her Trident Series, Heroes Ever After and the others.
