Review of King of Beasts Duet, Book 2 by Diana A. Hicks #TuesdayBookBlog
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Rex Valentino is on a clock if he’s going to save his seat as the head of The Society, the combination of five mafia families that work together to keep peace and protect their own, and to save his life. There are hidden factors against him, and he has to figure out who is betraying him and who is working to try to protect him and save him. Will he figure it out in time? Will his obsession finally become a reality and will the woman that he has fallen for figure out her actual feelings in time for both of them to survive?
Caterina Alfera’s life is not what she has always thought it was and her father is not the man she thought he was. At twenty-four her whole life has been turned upside down and she has to find a way to balance the love of her father and the man that she has always avoided at all costs, only to figure out that she really does not hate the man.
I loved the conclusion to the King of Beasts Duet. The story is full of deception, families that will do their best to protect everyone they consider family, and the danger of the mafia and their battle with law enforcement. I loved the characters and the story. Catrina is a bit naïve, but she’s also a woman that has lost already and can’t think of losing anyone else that she loves, and this can put her life in danger as well as put others in danger. Her naivety is a dangerous thing for her in the life that she finds herself. I loved the book and give it a 5-star review. I want to pick up Massimo’s story, Lost Raven, and read it as well.

Review of Pride: Deadly Sins Syndicate by K. L. Ramsey @KLRamsey5
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Damion Pride and Finn Envy are best friends that started their own business after college. They both come from families that were part of the Deadly Sins Syndicate but want their business to be on the up and up. When Damion’s uncle wants to join forces with them their lives take on more than they were expecting.
Nixon Ryder works for Damion Pride’s uncle and is trying to bring them together to work as a team. However, Nixon is hiding a huge secret and when it comes to light the danger is amped up.
I enjoyed this story, it is a bit twisted, but it is good. The characters are likeable and entertaining, but a bit on the arrogant side. Of course, if you are part of the Deadly Sins Syndicate, you have the right to be arrogant. There were a few things that I still have questions about after finishing the book, but perhaps they will be answered in the next one. I give the book a 4-star review and am waiting for Finn’s story to see if I get the answers I have. K. L. Ramsey has a knack for writing stories that draw you in right away and Pride was no different. It was hard to put down to go to bed because I wanted to know what was going to happen. There’s danger, Alpha males, twisted family connections and a very sassy woman in this story.
Review of Blind Deception by Sandy Alvarez and Crystal Daniels @CrystalandSandy and @GiveMeBooksPR
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
She’s a woman that has felt as if she’s a burden on her family for a long time. Her disability has put her at a disadvantage for some things in her life. Lelani Mancini is the niece of Arturo Mancini, the man that now leads the Mancini Family Mafia. She’s also a pawn and is to be used to unite two families. Each family has their reasons for wanting the union, but she is not happy with not having the choice or with having to marry a man that she doesn’t know.
Austin is a member of the Kings of Retribution MC, Montana Chapter. He has his own ghosts that he keeps hidden from most. He doesn’t like to talk about his childhood or how his life changed one tragic night. He found the Kings of Retribution MC and has had a good life since he’s been a member. They are his family by choice.
I really enjoyed this story of two unlikely people meeting by chance and each finding the person that could heal their hearts. Lelani has a lot to overcome since she hasn’t felt as if she is wanted or cared about for a long time. It will take some convincing and a lot of looking inside herself to find the woman that she is meant to be and the life that she deserves. The secret she is keeping hidden could be lethal to the Kings, but she will soon learn that they will back her and keep her safe. I love Austin, he’s a tough guy with a soft heart and loyal man. His grandfather is a great character too. I loved the characters in this story as well as the story line. I give it a 5-star review and look forward to more in the series to read.

Review of Lucian’s Reign by V.F. Mason @Author_VFMason
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Rebecca Esmeralda Hugh is an artist and is from an elite family in New York City. She was taken in by her grandmother, a very rich and well-known member of the elite in New York when tragedy struck her family. She has also become the obsession of two monsters. The only questions are, which one is worse, and which one will win the battle to claim her?
Lucian Cortez had a rough start in life, but when he finally found his family and was able to get out of the terrible world he was in, he became a man with a name and an empire to back him. He has dark secrets but when he finds out that Esmeralda is in the crosshairs of a monster, he will make her his wife and keep her safe, but will she agree to the marriage?
This is a dark, twisted story of two people that have had to survive without the comfort of love for a lot of their lives and need to find a way to show love. Esmeralda grew up in a loving household until tragedy struck and then her life was a battle to survive and make her grandmother happy. Lucian started out in a dark world and overcame the streets as a teen and lived with his father and grandfather, but not all families show love to each other and with all of the secrets in Lucian’s family surrounding his mother, Lucian has little respect for his father or grandfather, until he learns the truth. I really love dark stories and V. F. Mason knows how to write dark and twisted. I loved Lucian’s Reign and it helped to see some of the background of the Cortez family and the boys that will grow up to be the Four Dark Horsemen. I can’t wait for more in this series. I loved reading about the families of the Four Dark Horsemen and some of the background of their lives. I give this book a 5-star review and look forward to more books by V.F. Mason, she’s a favorite author of mine and I love reading anything by her.

Power. Money. Status.
All the riches this world has to offer belong to me.
Whatever I want, I get.
And those who stand in my way?
They don’t live long enough to tell their tale.
I’m a villain thriving in darkness, who seeks no redemption.
A hunter who sets his sight on an irresistible prey.
There is a monster reigning inside me who covets to stake his claim and drag her to his cave.
A beautiful siren who ends up captured by a possessive beast and locked in his castle.
She will be my wife.
No matter what I have to do in order to achieve it.

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.
