Review of Betrayed Honor (Ivanov Crime Family, Book #3) by Zoe Blake @zoeblakebooks and @GiveMeBooksPR

⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ 4 out of 5

She’s the little sister of his boss’ and five years younger than him. She’s off limits in so many ways, but his heart can’t see any of those reasons. Mikhail is the head of security for the Ivanov’s and although he is trusted by them to keep the family safe and works with them on some of their business deals, he doesn’t have the pedigree to marry Nadia Ivanov, or to have her be his.

He’s the dark, quiet, handsome shadow that follows her wherever she goes, even if it’s only with his eyes. Nadia has had a crush on Mikhail Volkov since he started working for her family. As she got older and he rejected her more than once, she figured it was time to move on and find someone that would love her and care about her. The only problem was that when she put herself in danger and Mikhail barely made it to her in time, it changed their relationship completely.

I loved this story of the forbidden fruit finally being able to find the love of the person that they have wanted for so long. Nadia and Mikhail are perfect together and even though the whole family treated Nadia as an innocent, naïve young girl, she proved to all of them that she was fine with the family business and could find her path in life with the one man that would do anything to keep her safe and protected. Mikhail may be a big, tough, quiet Russian enforcer and security for the family, but his heart becomes soft mush when Nadia’s life is in jeopardy and he rescues her. I loved the Ivanov brother’s stories and Nadia’s story was just as action packed, entertaining, and enjoyable to read. I give this book a 4-star review and look forward to more books by Zoe Blake. She’s always a favorite author of mine.

I picked up one of the useless pieces of decor he had about the place to make it look like a normal home and not like the security surveillance headquarters it really was.
He raised his arm. Pointing a finger at me, he warned, “Don’t you dare!”
I threw it.
He ducked in time for it to smash against the wall behind him.
“Liar!” I cried as I launched another missile, a glass cylinder holding an unlit candle.
He lunged for me. I feigned right then left and bolted to the other side of the room, placing the sofa between us.
“You’re a fucking liar! You’ve been fucking lying to me this whole time!”
“Language!” he roared as he circled around. I kept out of arm’s reach, always keeping the length of the sofa between us.
I fired back, purely out of spite, the one phrase I knew would piss him off. “Poshol nahuj!”
Reaching down, he used both hands to shove the sofa. It easily slid across the polished dark bamboo floor, removing the barricade between us. He rose to his full, unbelievably intimidating height. A vein pulsed in his temple as his chest rose and fell with each agitated breath. I had angered the beast. Without the sofa between us, I was vulnerable and unprotected.
“Apparently,” Mikhail snarled, “my bad girl needs another lesson from me.”
There was only one option left for me. I turned and bolted for the front door.
He was right behind me.
Snatching my arm, he swung me around and used the force of his body to press me against the wall of windows. Behind me was a panorama of stars and the flickering lights from the boats out on the Potomac, a peaceful scene that belied the war brewing between us.
He pressed his fingertips into my upper arms. “Listen to me.”
Not wanting to listen to his excuses and lies, I clawed at his grasp, trying to wriggle away.
He shifted his hold to my waist and swooped down to capture my lips in an attempt to subdue me; I shifted my head to the side, avoiding him. It didn’t work.
Tightening his hold on my waist, he lifted me high off my feet. I was anchored against the glass with his hips, his hard cock pushed against my stomach. He released his hold and wrapped his hands around my jaw, forcing my head forward. He then took possession of my mouth. When I tried to keep my lips closed, he pressed his thumbs into the soft flesh of my cheeks, forcing my jaw open. At first, I returned his kiss, then I returned to my senses and fought back and bit his lip.
His head reared back. He swept his tongue across his lower lip, lapping up a tiny bead of blood.
He wasn’t deterred.
He captured my mouth again. I could taste the metallic tang of his blood. His fingers slipped into my wild strawberry curls, holding my head steady for his continued assault. He pressed his body tighter against my soft curves, refusing to give quarter till I accepted him and accepted his dominance over me.
He broke the kiss and breathed against my mouth. “You’re mine. Fucking mine.”
I knew the moment the fight left me when I felt the brush of the back of his knuckles down my cheek. Swallowing my capitulating moan, he deepened the kiss. He interlaced his fingers with mine and pressed my hands against the glass on either side of my head. The cold, hard surface brought reality crashing back. I desperately wanted to return to the warmth and ignore all else but knew that was not possible.
Using every ounce of strength I possessed, I pulled back. He ran a thumb over my cheekbone, feeling the soft warmth of my flush. I never wore makeup, but at this moment, I was certain my swollen lips looked as if they were bright with a kiss-smeared crimson lipstick.
“Why?” I whispered, the sting of betrayal bright in my eyes.
He took a deep breath and told me the jaggedly raw truth. “All I can say is, from the moment I met you, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that you were meant to be mine and mine alone. Part of that meant you were mine to protect.”
“So you snuck a security camera into my shop?”
His eyes hardened as he shifted his gaze away from mine.
Fuck. It was so much worse than just a single security camera. He and my brothers had probably been watching and monitoring every step I ever made from the moment I left Gregor’s house, seeking my so-called independence.
He took a step back and let me slide back onto my feet. From this position, he towered over my slight frame. “Baby, you are just going to have to trust me.”
“Trust you? I feel like I don’t even know you anymore, if I ever did.”
“I never had any cameras in your apartment. Just the entrances and exits and your shop.”
I threw my arms into the air. “Oh, well, that makes things all better.”
“I will not apologize or feel guilty for doing my fucking job, for wanting to keep the woman I love safe.”
I shook my head. “No! No. You can’t do that to me. You don’t get to say that. You don’t get to give me the cold shoulder for three years and then one day announce that we’re together and you love me because you’ve finally decided you want me. That’s not how this works.”
He slammed his fist against the window. The glass vibrated from the impact, and the starburst crack a few feet away lengthened. “Damn it, Nadia. You know why we couldn’t be together. It was for your own good.”
I shifted away from the window and backed up a few paces, needing space from him. I couldn’t think straight when he was that close to me. “For my own good. For my own protection. You’re no better than my brothers. Deciding what is best for me without even bothering to ask me!”
He started toward me. “I am what is best for you. I’ve always been what is best for you. Me and me alone.”
Picking up the nearest object I could lay my hands on — a blue glass bowl — and I shouted back, “Then you should have put a ring on it instead of just standing on the sidelines all these years.” I threw the bowl straight at his head and once again bolted for the door.
I didn’t make it two steps before he caught up with me. Grasping me from behind, he wrenched my body close to his own. He leaned down to whisper in my ear. “You’re not going anywhere.”
My hands balled into fists as I stomped my foot, trying to step on his toes and force him to release me. “Let go!”
Mikhail moved so quickly I didn’t even have time to protect myself. He spun me around in his embrace. His right hand struck out, wrapping his fist into a shock of my messy curls, then he wrenched my head back. His other hand went to my lower back, pushing me forward and against him. My hands rose to press back against his chest. He didn’t budge.
He stormed back. “You need to understand that as of tonight, things have changed. We’re together now, and I’m not letting you go.”
I twisted my head to the side. “We’re not together. All I’ve ever been to you is a security job.”
“You’ve been a whole lot fucking more to me than some stupid job, Nadia.”
His mouth swept down to capture my own.

𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐍𝐄𝐗𝐓 𝐁𝐈𝐍𝐆𝐄 𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐃 𝐈𝐒 𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐄 – My Review of Break, B.A.D. Inc., Book #5

𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐦𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐁.𝐀.𝐃. 𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5

Oliver Ward broke. The only woman that he had seen as his future had chosen someone else and she also found out how twisted Oliver’s mind was. He’s spent four months in an institution getting better and realizing that his life is not over and that he can move on without Jack. If everyone would just let him be and let him live his life, he’d be much happier. One “accidental” meeting could change everything for him and make his life even better, but is there a catch to it? Maybe the real Oliver can come and live his life.

Scarlett is having some issues with her career and is forced to take a break. With that forced break, she is thinking that maybe it’s time to make a change in her life and career. One patient and his father could ruin everything for Scarlett. Good thing she has a lifeline in Jack, but could their plan backfire or cause more harm than good?

I like Oliver and Scarlett’s story. They are both broken from their childhoods, but they actually understand each other and complete each other. A happenstance meeting could be what both of them need to move on in their lives and find that Happily Ever After, but they will have some issues to overcome first. I love the characters in this series. They are not always who you think they are. These guys have fought to get to the top, where they are, and they will continue to fight to stay there and to make sure that the people they love and consider family are safe and protected at all costs. The struggles that Oliver has to endure to get his life in order and find peace and happiness are heartbreaking, yet the outcome is beautiful and worth the fight that he has to go through. I give this story a 4-star review and suggest it to readers that are looking for a dark, heartbreaking story with a feel-good ending.

I thought my heart beat for Jackie Chambers, but it was just a placebo effect.

As I return to B.A.D. Inc, I’m a changed man. Ready to face the future on my own, to find out who Oliver Ward really is and stand on my own two feet for the first time in a long, long time.

Yet I’ve only been at work one day when Zoey comes crashing into my life.

The chemistry between us is undeniable and as I reveal my true self—my dark side—Zoey only seems to light the way.

Could I really have found the woman for me, or is it just another dangerous obsession?

Then I find out she’s not who I thought she was.

And now I will test her

Greed. Power. Sin.
It all comes with the gavel.
Blurs the lines between church and state.
But the Knightdale Charter of the Satan’s Knights MC is my life.
And I’d do anything for this club.
Like letting the best woman I ever had slip through my fingertips.
A sinfully beautiful spitfire, she’s my better half in every way.
My twin flame. My everything.
My biggest regret.
But there’s no making things right between us.
Because I’m the reason she’s alone yet again.
And if our past wasn’t enough to put out the fire in her soul, my crimes certainly will be.

★ ★ ★ COMING SOON! ★ ★ ★ @jennw23 @sienna_snow

Dangerous King, an all new dark and sexy standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Sienna Snow is coming in two weeks and we have your first look!

Fall into Nikhil and Danila’s world March 31st!


I’d watched the gorgeous brunette socializing with New York City’s elite as if she were born into it for the better part of the evening.

But I knew the truth.

She was a very good actress, a chameleon, a woman who’d learned the hard way to navigate this new path and use it to her advantage. She played the game better than those born into it. All the while hiding the cunning intelligence underneath. A genius that had come to her naturally, something that wasn’t cultivated in her new life but cast in the poverty-stricken neighborhood where we’d met.

She’d shed the taint of the dark streets and created a new life, whereas I used it to my advantage and wore it like a well-worn-in suit.

The one thing that had never changed in all the years was the way she looked at me.

It wouldn’t matter if I was wearing a tux or a beat-up hoodie, heat would fill her hazel eyes for a few seconds before she schooled it away. It was a pattern we repeated over and over for too many years to count.

There was no doubt Shah had warned her away from anything and everything associated with the old neighborhood, especially me.

I’m the one she should have stayed away from.

The thief, the hustler, the boy without a past or a future. A kid forged by the rules of the streets.

She sees into my darkest depths and doesn’t blink an eye. She’s my dream, my peace from a place I can never escape.

Then one day, she’s gone, whisked into a world I refuse to taint with my touch.

Fifteen years later, she’s back in my life, needing a favor only I can provide.

I’m no longer the street rat she once knew.  Now I’m king of an empire, where my favors come at a price.

A price, she says she is more than willing to pay, but the cost is all of her…body, mind, and soul.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Caterina Alfera is the princess, she’s the daughter of the once sitting “King” of the Society, but he stepped down when he met and married Caterina’s mother. The only problem is that you can never really leave the mafia and while Caterina and her mother believed that her father was no longer in the mafia or in the Society, he and his sons were still in that world. Caterina will do anything for her father, and he knows it, so when he finds himself in a situation, he makes a deal with the devil and puts her in the crosshairs.

Rex Valentino is the sitting “King” of the Society, he took over after his father was gunned down. He made a promise to his father that he would bring the family back together and protect everyone. However, he needs the once sitting King, Michael Alfera to help him bring the family together and since he has always wanted Caterina, he will use Michael’s situation to get her into his house. He will use the fact that someone is out to destroy and kill off all of the members of the Society, which should have been a secret, to get her to agree to his terms.

I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to the conclusion of the duet. Rex is very Alpha and manipulative, but he’s also very sexy and powerful. He made a promise to his father and wants to make sure that he can go through with it, but there are a lot of factors against him and the Society. He will have to fight hard to get what he wants, but at least Caterina has discovered that she doesn’t hate Rex. These two families have had some bad blood in the past, but they’ve also had a closeness like a family at one time too, and even if Michael does not sit on the board of the Society any longer, he is still part of it and a target is on his back as well as his three grown children’s. I give this story a 5-star review and I look forward to the conclusion of the duet. Caterina has to come to her senses and realize that her and Rex are meant to be This is a book full of danger, strong characters, manipulative men, and some sexy Kinbaku scenes. These two have such a strong reaction to each other and they will be so intense when they finally figure out their issues and find a relationship. They just need to get everyone else out of their way so that they can be alone and figure it out on their own and COMMUNICATE.

Cover Reveal: Kansas (Ruthless Kings MC, Atlantic City, Book 2) by K. L. Savage @klsavage_author @GiveMeBooksPR #TuesdayBookBlog

Title: Kansas
Series: Ruthless Kings MC: Atlantic City #2

Release Date: April 6, 2021


Instincts are all we have to rely on.
And mine were spot on.
There are a few things I don’t like to talk about in life.
My father.
And Kansas.
I hate him, and I hate that godforsaken state.
To this day, I haven’t loved because there’s a fear.
An inkling.
An instinct that I will be just like him.
I convinced myself our blood was rotten, tainted, and sour.
I believe I didn’t have the ability to be faithful or loyal.
But then after a blizzard, a sailboat washed to shore.
And she was there.
She’s here at the clubhouse now.
Violet Winston.
A name that matches the fields of lavender of her eyes.
I have no right to want her.
I can’t love her.
I’ll ruin her.
The more I get to know her, the harder I fall.
Usually, there’s a calm after the storm.
But not this time.
Between her father being a drug dealer.
The drugs hidden in the boat.
And the man that wants his drugs.
We are about to feel the havoc of a hurricane.
Truths hit us out of nowhere and they hurt worse than a lie ever did.
Love tests us and rips us open. Friendships are lost. Loyalty is damned.
I’m not in Kansas anymore.
But Jersey hurts just the same.




I wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of whimpering. For a second, I don’t know where I am, but then I hear a soft beep of a monitor and realize I’m with Springs. I glance down, and my nose gets buried in the bush of her unruly, wild, curly hair. I’ve never seen hair like this before. It’s how I came up with the name Springs. Each strand of hair looks like a tightly wound coil or spring.
Since I don’t know her name, I’ve been calling her Springs.
She quiets down and settles against me again, and I do something weird, something I’ve never done before, and I’m glad she’s asleep for it.
I inhale the scent of her hair, and my eyes roll to the back of my head when I smell peaches. I have to hold back a groan and many, many other things that are not appropriate right now.
I’m such an ass.
She rolls away from me, and blood rushes through my arm. Static tingles my fingers, and I slide my arm out from under her and then fix the sheet as it slides down her shoulders. She has a small tattoo right under her collarbone, simple, delicate, and sophisticated. It’s a simple flower, a rose. The line work is thin, which gives it a feminine, elegant appearance. I want to lean down and kiss it so badly, but it’s selfish thinking, considering everything she’s been through. I shouldn’t want her like I do. I have no right.
There are a few things I tell myself to stay away from.
And hate.
I like to be balanced. Being right in the middle means nothing can go wrong. There are no expectations to be met. No promises can be broken. No disappointment can be felt. No love can be lost.
I live life in the middle for the most part. Personally, I think it’s worked out pretty well, minus being whipped and strung up like a pig for standing up for what I believe in.
Keeping my desires close to my heart saves me, even if what I want suffocates me every day.
Even though I want love, even though I want more, and I don’t want to slide between the legs of a club whore, I’m scared.
What if I’m just like my father? What if what I have isn’t enough, and I’ll want another life, another family? What if his bad blood runs through my veins, and I’m just this piece of shit human being? Maybe I try too hard to be a decent man because inside I know just how rotten I am.
My stomach growls, yanking me out of my pity party. I rub my hands over my face and look at the time. It’s four in the morning. No wonder I’m hungry. I missed dinner, and that means she did too.
I sit up and swing my legs over the bed as I stretch my neck left, then right, getting the cricks out. My boots hit the floor with a soft thud, and I look over my shoulder to make sure I didn’t wake her. Her curly hair looks like a huge cotton ball on the pillow. Her body is covered by the sheet and all I see are those curly coils. I chuckle to myself and fight the urge to reach up and run my fingers through her hair.

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.

If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.


Release and Review of Risk of Temptation (Behind Closed Doors, Book 6) by Maggie Cole @GiveMeBooksPR

Title: Risks of Temptation
Series: Behind Closed Doors #6
Author: Maggie Cole
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 16, 2021


Innocent and quiet is how everyone sees her. I did too. But the world has underestimated her.

She can’t stand any man’s touch—except mine. Once she has it, there isn’t anything else she craves. And I’m unable to resist any of her wishes.
But powerful men see her innocence. They will do anything to have her. And there’s nowhere to run except straight into the pit of the fire.
We’ll both have to do things we despise. No amount of training can prepare for the evil in front of us.
And I have to break her. She knows it. She agreed to it. She convinced me it’s the only way out.
Somehow, we have to survive, escape, and put each other back together. Hopefully, all the pieces fit again.

(Risks of Temptation is the sixth jaw dropping installment in the Behind Closed Doors series. Each novel is a stand-alone regarding the HEA of the couple, but the plot develops with each story. This steamy series is for mature readers only and is best if read in order. This series may contain situations that may be sensitive for some readers. Trigger Warning: This book may trigger sexual abuse survivors (no descriptive rape scenes.))

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

A great ending to a great series. Malin and Emilia’s story brings everything together in the Behind Closed Doors series and it’s done very well.

Malin is a member of the Interpol rescue team that went into rescue six women being held by Santiago Gomez, the Columbian Drug lord. He’s known these men for years and has been in a lot of dangerous situations with them, but do the really know the real Malin? He’s keeping secrets and it’s about time for them to come to light. One rescued woman will be the key to helping him bring everything to light and getting into position to blow the whole Behind Closed Doors planning.

Emilia is the younger sister of Naomi Salazar, an investigative reporter that has also been taken by Santiago Gomez, but Emilia is a game changer and is not expected as being a hostage. She’s a woman that hides away in her home, teaches remotely, and keeps to herself. Her sister is really the only person has a lot of contact with her, but when she climbs out of the hole in the jungle and the man standing there waiting to rescue her brings out a whole different woman.

I loved this conclusion to this series. It tied everything up and ended with six couples that found their other halves and found a way to take down the corruption in so many countries and make peace with who they are and find a way to have a life that they can live with someone that makes the happy and helps them heal from so much in their pasts. I love the series, the characters, and the strength that Emilia finds when she climbs up out of that hole in the jungle. She may have had a rough childhood that made her hide herself away, but now that Malin has found her she’s grown so much and found her strength and the power within to help him do what needed to be done. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to more books by Maggie Cole.

Mateo Moretti can’t remember most of his life since he was blown up by his stepson, but his heart knows that Natalia is his daughter, and he will protect her and make sure that she is taken care of no matter what. It’s funny what the mind forgets, but the heart doesn’t. Mateo knows some things, but he’s not sure how when he can’t remember most things in his past. He has a bond with the Ruthless Kings MC. They are now like family to him since they took him and nursed him back to life after the explosion that caused his amnesia.

Nora Thompson has not had an easy life. What she has and where she has is, that’s all her. She hasn’t had any help. She’s a double major and a double minor in college, smart beyond measure, and works very hard to stay under the radar. On her twenty-first birthday, her best friend and roommate convinces her to go out on the town to celebrate, something that Nora really doesn’t want to do. When she’s all dolled up and catches the eye of none other than Mateo Moretti, her whole life will change.

I loved this story Mateo and Nora. It’s dark, sexy and unexpected. Mateo is old enough to be Nora’s father, yet they work very well together. Mateo is such a great character and I loved reading his story. He’s dominant, powerful, sexy and very dangerous. His life hasn’t been easy, but hopefully his life will be back on track and he can take back what he lost after he was targeted by his stepson. I loved the scene of him escaping the compound with Maximo. It was a great scene, in the prologue. Mateo is another great book written by K. L. Savage. Their characters and stories are always a favorite to read for me. I give this story a 5-star review and I am so looking forward to more of the Moretti Syndicate in the future as well as any other books by K. L. Savage. Always a one-click favorite author of mine.
