Title: Insolent
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Cynthia A. Rodriguez
Genre: Dark Romance Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: December 9, 2019
There’s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,

 

Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.


There’s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
She’s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

Sol is a man whose past has created the man he has become. He is lethal, dark, and deadly. He will find his light while he is on a job that will get him vengeance for the loss he suffered as a young boy. He has a group of men around him that will stand beside him and kill for him, but are they all who they seem to be?

Moira is a young woman who has not seen kindness in her young life. Her mother abuses her and her father and brothers do nothing to help her or protect her. She is the oldest child, but she is also the black sheep of the family in their eyes. She is strong, deadly, ruthless and she is the light to Sol’s dark.

I liked this story and found the twists and suspense to pull me into the story. The story flowed so well, and it was action packed. The characters were all different and surprising in some ways. The darkness and the kindness of some of the characters were what made the story interesting. I have been enjoying the retelling of the tales in a dark and sinister way in The Sinister Fairy Tales collection. If you like stories with strong women, dark men, and deadly characters, you will love these books. I give this story a 4.5-star review and suggest you one-click it as soon as possible. It’s a fairly quick read and once you start reading it you may not want to put it down until the end.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
Ex-Assistant DA Brody Harcourt is a man living on borrowed time. He is being hunted and targeted, but he is also playing a dangerous game of deceit with is boss, a dangerous man in his own right. His boss is Valetin Carrera the head of the Carrera Cartel. Brody is a Lieutenant in the Cartel running the business in Houston, Texas. The only thing is that he’s working behind his boss’ back and it may get him killed. He doesn’t have anything to live for though, so what does it matter.

Adriana Carrera has had her world tipped upside down and is trying to find her way in the world now. Brody is the reason for her world being tipped and she is determined to make him pay for that. First, she has to keep herself alive and find the man who has threatened her new life and her long-lost brother. It is twisted world she has been living in and the truth could destroy her and her family that she lost when she was a baby.

I really enjoyed this story. There were so many twists and so much deception going on, but it kept the pages turning. I had not read the first two books in the series, but I was not lost in this story as it covers the past enough to let you know what is going on. I did purchase the other two books prior to this one though so that I can understand the whole story. I’ve only read Blurred Red Lines so far, but I loved it as much as I did this one. I give this story a 4.5-star review and suggest that you buy this book and read it if you are a fan of Cartel, suspense, or stories with strong women who can hold their own with the deadly men they align themselves with.

 

ARC Review of : I Like the Way You Hurt by Lorrain Allen @SDSXXTours @AuthorLAllen #TuesdayBookBlog

teaser 1

⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 3.5 out of 5

Cocoa is a senior in high school living in Los Angeles. She’s biracial and living with her mother who has been dating Matthew, from West Virginia. Cocoa’s world will be turned upside down when her mother accepts the proposal from Matthew, and they move to West Virginia before Cocoa starts her senior year of high school.

Maverick is a senior who rules the high school that Cocoa will attend for her senior year. His father is a well-respected judge in their small town. Little do the towns people know his real father. The man is pure evil and has made Maverick’s life a living hell. He doesn’t know the meaning of love or kindness. His two best friends are the only people who know what Maverick’s life has been like and the real father that has raised him.

The first few chapters were hard for me to get through. I’m not a fan of bullies but as I got through the chapters the story got better for me. I am a fan of dark romance books though and this book has that as well. Once I got into the book it was easier to read and I liked it. I found the change in Maverick to be refreshing and the fact that he got away from his hometown to find the better man that he could be was good. If you like young adult romance, bully, or dark romance, you should pick up this book. I give it a 3.5-star review.

You can lie down and give up or you can rise and keep going…

Guts & Glory: Walker by Jeanne St. James releases on December 7th!

Universal — mybook.to/Shadows-Walker
FREE with Kindle Unlimited
Walker’s been living life by this motto since the age of twenty when the girl he planned his future with shattered his heart and left a hole in his soul. His time in the military, and current job at In the Shadows Security, have kept him moving but he’s always felt the ache of that loss.

From the outside Ellie McMaster has led a seemingly perfect life, big house, rich adoring husband, fancy cars. But it’s all been a huge lie, one that started nineteen years ago when she walked away from her first love and the boy who stole her heart. Now time has run out for her and with nowhere to go and nothing left to lose she’ll have to face down the pain of the past in hopes of saving her future.

But Trace Walker isn’t the young carefree teenager she remembers, he’s now a muscle-bound titan with nothing but hurt and anger shining in his blue eyes. His time in the Army as a Night Stalker wasn’t easy, and he didn’t return home whole. Will he open himself up again and face the risks that come with having Ellie back in his life, back in his heart? Can this be their shot at a happily ever after, or their final goodbye?

Note: Walker is the fourth book of the Guts & Glory series, a six-book spin-off from my Dirty Angels MC series. While it’s recommended to read both series in order, each book can be read as a stand-alone. As with all my books, this has an HEA, no cliffhanger or cheating.

BLURB:

One way or another, all men pay for their crimes. Some do their time locked in a cage, while others meet their due karma without a judge or a jury. My debt to society is almost paid, and soon I’ll be free to get my son the justice he deserves. Justice he wouldn’t be due if only I had done my job as his father and protected him.

There’s just one hitch, and her name is Charlotte.

The gorgeous and completely inexperienced paralegal’s mission seems to be making me a law-abiding citizen and not a vengeful son of a bitch. But underneath her prim and proper facade, there is a woman begging to be unleashed. If I wasn’t so hellbent on breaking the chains of pain bound to my boy, I’d be tempted to unravel Charlotte and show her what it’s like to ditch the law and walk on the wild side. And there’s no time for me to succumb to her efforts to make me a decent man. I’ve agreed to prospect for the Satan’s Knights MC, and my pretty little paralegal is about to learn there ain’t nothing noble about a man who sells his soul to the Devil in the name of revenge.

*Editorial note: Breaking The Chains is the second book in the Satan’s Knights Prospect Trilogy. Fan’s of Janine’s Blackout Duet will immediately recognize Bishop, but all readers can enjoy this novel as a steamy, suspenseful standalone.*

ENJOY PEACHES

Hearts are big but they’re also made of glass.

“Why are you doing this?”

“What do you mean?”

“I answered your question, now answer mine. Why are you here, Peaches?”

“Why do you call me that?” she fires back.

“I’ll tell you why when you answer me. You’re not dressed in your lawyer duds, so I’m going to assume Schwartz didn’t send you. In fact, I know he didn’t because he told me to call the office for an update—something I forgot to do because I was….” I let my words trail as my eyes wander back to her tits. “…preoccupied with other thoughts.”

Those cheeks of hers go pink and my dick stirs.

Just one fucking second.

One motherfucking second is all I need to imagine all the ways I can get her to blush.

“You’re right, I came on my own free will,” she whispers.

“Good girl,” I praise as her nipples pebble against the thin cotton t-shirt.

One fucking second.

“Now, tell me why,” I demand, reluctantly tearing my eyes away from her glorious rack. The view is just as fucking daunting up top and sends the blood rushing to my dick just as fucking fast. Her lips part and a breath escapes them. It takes everything in me to refrain from demanding she opens them wider. “Tell me,” I say instead.

She swallows hard.

That neck.

I want to taste it.

Fucking brand it is what I want to do.

“I didn’t come here for this…” she says, clearly flustered and moves to push back her chair. Reaching across the table, I close a hand around her wrist.

Fuck it.

Let them send me to the hole.

I’ll take the punishment for one second of Charlotte.

“My father was in prison,” she blurts and as soon as she does, she presses her free hand over her mouth. I snatch my own hand away from hers and lean back against the chair absorbing the revelation. My mind flashes back to the first visit and the way she spewed those facts about touching visitors to the guard. At the time I figured it was some shit she studied.

“He died there,” she continues, dropping her hand away from her mouth as she lifts her gaze to me. The flush covering her cheeks deepens but it’s anger that puts it there this time. “So, yes, I came here on my day off to see you and I’m very well aware that I’ve probably thrown myself into this case for all the wrong reasons. Helping you won’t bring back my dad, but Connor deserves his even if he’s a incorrigible asshole.”

“Smaller words, Peaches, all I got out of that is you think I’m an asshole.”

“How’s this? Fuck you. Do you need me to translate those two words?”

“Now, you’re speaking my language,” I reply, cocking my head to the side as she rises from her chair. Huffing out a breath, she mutters something as she roughly gathers her belongings from the table. “Why are you leaving?”

Her eyes snap to mine and she stares at me as if I’ve lost my mind.

“You’re kidding me, right?”

I shrug my shoulders in response.

“Schwartz is going to get you out of here,” she says, bracing her hands on the edge of the table as she leans over it. God, she’s fucking adorable when she’s pissed.

Adorable and completely fuckable.

I bet she likes it rough.

I also bet she doesn’t know she likes it rough.

The girls probably never been properly fucked.

“It’d be wise of you to pull your shit together, Bishop. Everyone is setting the stage for you to reunite with that sweet boy because we believe every child deserves to know they’re loved. You may be a jerk, but you love your kid. I can see that in those cold eyes of yours and he needs to feel that love. He needs to know he counts. Don’t let him down—”

Her sermon sobers me, and I quickly cut her off.

“I won’t,” I interject. “Don’t think for one second I’m not grateful—”

“Well, you sure as hell have a funny way of showing it.”

I shrug again.

“It’s the asshole in me.”

“Yeah, well maybe that’s something you should work on.”

Nodding, I swipe the photos from the table.

“Thank you for these.”

“You’re welcome,” she mutters, pushing in her chair.

“Can I still call you next Saturday?”

Shoving the envelope under her arm, she rolls her eyes and sighs.

“Yes, but I’m doing this for Connor, Bishop, not you. If Schwartz finds out—”

“He won’t,” I interrupt. “And thank you for putting Connor first.”

“Try it some time,” she says. I can tell she regrets the harsh reply because she closes her eyes as soon as she says it. “I’m sorry, that was mean.”

“You’re just being honest,” I tell her.

“He’s a great kid,” she continues. “And for what it’s worth, the family who has taken him in are very nice. They’re trying their best to make him feel at home.”

I don’t know how I feel about that. I’m glad he’s safe and out of Pete’s hands, but home isn’t there. I don’t know where it is, but I know it’s not there.

“I’ve got to go,” Charlotte says as she steps around the table. I probably should apologize, maybe even thank her again. I do neither and instead, I let her walk away, but not without indulging myself with another glance at her ass.

“Peaches,” I call and she pauses. Turning around, she struts back to the table and props her hand on her hip.

“Unless you’re going to tell me why you call me that, we have nothing else to say to one another.”

“Perfect as a peach.”

“What?”

“Your ass, Charlotte, it reminds me of a peach. Perfectly ripe and oh so fucking round. There ain’t ever been a peach I didn’t want to sink my teeth into,” I say pointedly as I lean closer. “The first bite is always a little tough but once you get closer to the core…mmmm so fucking sweet. The juice drips from your lips and you fiend for more.”

She gasps and I grin, rising from my chair. With my photos tucked safely against my chest, I nod for the guard to escort me back to my cell. As he starts for me, I look back at Charlotte.

One more second.

Just one more fucking second.
