ARC Review of Kingston (Texas Country Criminals) by Bry Ann @AuthorBryAnn

Sexy Kingston

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

This story ripped my heart out of my chest from the very first page. Luckily, it’s back where it belongs and all better. Bry Ann’s books are emotional for me most of the time, but this story was the most emotional for me so far, but awesome!

Kingston Shelby is being groomed to take over the family business and at twelve years old, he is already well known in Burrows, Texas. He’s tough, hard, secretly a tender-hearted man who loves his family and will always do whatever it takes to keep them safe. When he hears a little girl crying, he can’t just walk away and ignore her, he has to check on her and finds that his protective instincts and care extends to her even though he just met her.

Blythe Davis lives life on her own standards. She is loud, proud, and very vibrant. When she is a little girl, she meets her knight in shining armor and ends up having a love/hate relationship with him for many years. She’s loyal to the Shelby family because they have always accepted her for who she is and she has always been there for Iris Shelby, her best-friend, and Kingston’s little sister.

This story is tragic, beautiful, emotional, and so awesome. The evolution of Kingston Shelby in this story is a beautiful sight to watch. He is still hard and tough, but he has such a soft heart when it comes to the people he loves and considers his family. He shows his vulnerable side when it comes to his family, but not many people see that side of him. Kingston is criminal but he is also a protector.

I give this book a 5-star review. I was so happy with the ending of this story, but I am also anxious for Hunter’s story. They men are heartbreakers and I love getting to see into their lives. This book will be available on February 14, a perfect love story for Valentines Day. Another awesome book by Bry Ann. If you haven’t read her books, you really need to. If you’re a fan of dark, mafia, or suspenseful romance, you will love her books. She is one my favorite authors, and whenever she has a new book, I make sure I have plenty of time to read it as soon as I can get my hands on it.

Once upon a time she became mine.
Mine to keep.

She was a healer.
He was a serial killer.

She helped people.
He destroyed them.

She was a beautiful angel.
He was a vicious monster.

She wanted to run away.
He captured her instead.

She promised to never surrender.
He guaranteed that she would.

Two lives, the hunter and the prey, forever entwined together.
In this battle of wills there would be no winner.

About the Author:
V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

EXCERPT

Allie offered me a warm smile until her gaze moved from mine to someone behind me. Then she beamed as if she’d just had the come of her life. I glanced over my shoulder and saw him. Or did I? I looked again. Shit. I did a double take on a stranger. I covered the side of my face and concentrated on my drink. Honestly, I’d been dealing with man-children all week. I didn’t need this at my oasis too.

In my peripheral vision, long fingers braced the edge of the counter. A voice something like warm honey ordered a bourbon neat. Had I seen that face right? I had a feeling I knew him, but at the same time I was sure he wasn’t from around here. I knew everyone in town. A guy like that stood out. Allie poured his drink, biting her bottom lip, which looked very creepy because she couldn’t stop smiling.

“Thank you.” The guy sat and took a long swig of his drink. He raked a hand through his hair. A few dark tresses rebelled and fell back on his cheek.

“As much as I hate to say this”—Allie leaned on the bar—“it’s last call.”

I’d seen that look on her face many times. She was taking this guy home. A part of me wished I could do the same. But my old life, my freedom, all that was gone. Or it needed to be gone. As Uncle Mickey used to say, love would get you killed. In the end, greed got him killed, but I still thought there was truth in his words. Not that I was planning on falling for this guy who I’d seen a total of two seconds. Thing was, I couldn’t fall for anyone at all, or they’d end up dead, like Mom.

I knew being the lady boss would take some adjusting. Backing down wasn’t an option for me. If that meant I couldn’t take a gorgeous guy home with me, so be it. I could be like Queen Elizabeth I and swear off men. Sipping my drink, I settled in my barstool to watch Allie flirt and work her thing on this guy.

“No problem. I’ll cash out.” He stood and dug into the front pocket of his dark pants. Dark dress shirt, dark hair, dark stubble on a chiseled jaw, and steel blue eyes. Dammit, why did I look?

Don’t smile.

He smiled at me — all straight, white teeth, and full lips. “Would you put her drink on my tab?”

“No, thanks. I can pay for my own alcohol.”

He put up his hands and flashed me a grin. “Okay, no drinks.”

His gaze met mine, and I pulled another newbie mistake. I looked. I tried not to, but my eyes dropped to the pecs showing just above the first button of his shirt.

Allie placed a couple of dirty glasses in the dishwasher behind the bar, then took off her apron. She poured me another cocktail and winked.

His deep voice boomed a barstool away as he leaned toward Allie. “How come she gets another drink and I don’t?”

“She works here, honey.” Allie surveyed his face. After several beats, she shook her head and served him another bourbon. “On the house.”

She stalked around the counter and hugged me. “I’m taking one for the team today. He’s all yours. Don’t ever say I don’t get you shit.”

I barked out a laugh. “I’m good. I was gonna go home anyway.”

“You have the key.” She raised an eyebrow and pressed her lips to my ear. “Lock the door behind you.”

“That wasn’t the point for giving me access,” I called after her.

“It is tonight.” With a quick wave and sigh directed at the stranger, who looked as confused as I was, she went out the front door.

My body jerked when I glanced around the bar. We were alone. How’d that happen? I had to get out of here. The last thing I needed was a new friend. New friends came with a bunch of complications. I had plenty of those. I had a crew to run, and no time for beautiful strangers.

“I have to walk you out.” I gestured for him to leave the bar.

“You’re not even going to ask my name?” He stood, and his tall frame oozed confidence and something else I recognized as danger.

“Nope.”

“What’s your name?”

I shook my head. On a normal day, I’d give him my name, flirt, or maybe I’d check to see if that chest was as muscled as it looked. But my life was on south of normal these days. Think Queen Elizabeth I.

“Okay. No names.” He glared at the front door, then turned his attention to me. “I had a rough day, week, if I’m being honest. Would you mind if I finished my bourbon?”

I glanced back at the bar. We both had fresh drinks. “I suppose that’s harmless enough.”

“Thanks.”

We sat in silence, sipping from our glasses. My gaze darted over to him every time he moved, when his finger tapped on the counter, when he licked his lips, when his legs slid down the stool until his feet were fully planted on the wooden floor.

“What happened to you? Female problems or work stuff?”

He shifted toward me, and I did the same. “So talking about work problems is safe, but not names.”

“Something like that.” I should have left ten minutes ago.

“Work stuff. I got passed over for a job I wanted.” He shrugged as if it didn’t sting anymore, though the gloom that lingered in his blue eyes said otherwise. That was something I could relate to. Someone literally had to die for me to get the job I wanted.

“And you?” he asked.

“What about me?”

“The way you’re clinging to that drink suggests you also had a hell of a day. Week?”

I raised my hand. “Week.”

He offered me a kind smile. “Want to talk about it?”

I did my best not to melt off my seat. “I got the job I wanted last week. But my subordinates seem to be on a mission to see me fail.” I attempted a smirk, but it quickly turned into a frown. That was the crux of it. My own people, my family, wanted to see me fail. Or rather, they wanted to see me not try at all.

“I’m sorry to hear that. People can be assholes sometimes.”

“I say cheers to that.” I tapped his glass with mine, and we both drank.

My gut told me this was a bad idea. Not listening to my gut was also a bad idea. I braced my hands on the bar and pushed myself off the stool. He watched me with expectant eyes, as if he wanted me to leave.

I went for honesty. “Bad timing.”

He nodded, sucking air through his teeth. “Same. Otherwise, I would beg you to stay.”

The electric shock his words infused through my body set me right. I walked backward several steps, and he advanced a single one. Technically, I was walking him out, but his slow gait felt more as if he were chasing me out the door.

It’s not how we make mistakes, but how we correct them that defines us…

Karsyn Fallaway

Tucker didn’t stop my car as it drove away from his house that summer night, and the sting of rejection hasn’t gone away.

Over a year has gone by, and I find myself looking for him in all the places he’d been before. It doesn’t help, he’s still an enigma I have yet to figure out.

My friends are the only thing holding me together. Work is the one thing keeping my mind busy. Until my life threatens to tear completely apart.

ARC Review of Enigma by Laramie Briscoe @GiveMeBooksPR and @LaramieBriscoe

Enigma Full Wrap

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

Tucker comes from a military family and background. He’s the K-9 trainer and officer for LSERT. A man who has a hard time showing his emotions and opening himself up to others. This becomes a problem when he turns Karsyn away and figures out that he made a mistake. Of course, it took a while for him to realize his mistake, but now he’s ready to open up to Karsyn, if she would just give him the chance.

Karsyn has her own secrets that she has not shared with Tucker and those secrets have defined who she is now. She knows that Tucker is following her home at night and sitting outside her place to make sure she is safe, but she hasn’t spoken to him in almost a year. She’s about to get the opportunity to talk to him and maybe rekindle their romance.

When these two are pushed together to work on a project for LSERT, they may get a second chance to find out if they belong together. They both have grown up in the past year and have realized that they want more in life than what they’ve both had for the past year. When your past comes back to haunt you and only one person can help you through the despair you know you’ve found your other half and life will be good.

I loved this story as much as I have loved the other books in the LSERT and MTF series. They are steamy, suspenseful, and full of Alpha men who serve and protect the women that complete them. The women are strong, independent, and sassy and they keep their men on their toes all the time. They aren’t afraid to tell their men when they need them to step up and take care of them and their families, but for the most part, they take care of their men. I give this story a 4.5-star review and whole heartedly recommend this book as well as the others in Laramie’s LSERT and MTF series.

Father Creighton and Smith Sinclair.
Two dangerous men inexplicably drawn to me.
One bound by a holy vow, the other by duty and honor.

One emphatically covets my soul.
The other, despite his regrets, desires my heart.
Each demands I surrender my body to his control.

A priest and a soldier.
A demon and a knight.
An eternity in darkness, or a lifetime of love and light.

In the end, I have only seconds to decide.

About the Author:

A confirmed city-girl, EVA CHARLES moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Cover Reveal: Walking the Line by Janine Infante Bosco @JanineBosco @LWoodsPR

WalkingTheLine_SQUARE
I broke the number one rule as a Satan’s Knights prospect.
I’m in love with the former vice president’s wife.
If anyone deserved a happy ending it was Carrie.
What she got instead was a damn tragedy.

Walking the Line by Janine Infante Bosco releases on February 11th!

Walking the Line - ebook cover

will be FREE with Kindle Unlimited subscription

Walking the line, exercising self-control, and respecting boundaries was never my thing.
Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife—it’s one of the ten commandments and the number one rule you don’t break when you’re a prospect for the Satan’s Knights. I fell in love with the former vice president’s wife. A lethal mistake on my behalf, that only left me bitter and standing on the edge of an overpass.

I would’ve jumped if it hadn’t been for the terrified girl, crying on the other side of the fence. She was seventeen and the district attorney’s daughter. She was also pregnant with my little brother’s baby. Desperate to avoid the wrath of her powerful father, she hid her pregnancy and protected us all in the process.

If anyone deserved a happy ending it was Carrie.

What she got instead was a damn tragedy. The kind of unimaginable horror that crushes your soul and breaks your heart. Now, we’re both standing on the edge of the overpass, walking a different kind of line, ready to jump.
