Review of Mirage (Sinister Fairy Tales Collection) by C. M. Radcliff

Mirage_CMRadcliff_Banner

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

A tale of a dark, twisted, and dangerous man who meets his match when he becomes too greedy.

Jasper Lafar only wants possessions and money. He can’t see anything past the money he is determined to get his hands on, or the woman that he deems to be his possession. Too bad for him that the new toy he has acquired doesn’t want to play his games and has a mind of his own.

Jaslyn Astor is living in hell and she believes that she deserves everything that she receives. After losing her father, she was in a dark place and Jasper seemed to be a kind companion that was there for her and helped to bring her out of the darkness, but she soon found out that he only drug her into a deeper and darker hole that she believes she has no way of climbing out of.

Axel is a man who lives his life on his own terms and his way of life is dangerous and one fight at a time. His injury caused him to lose everything and now he has to find a way back to the top. He only has one person that has his back and he knows that he can count on him no matter what. His roommate and best-friend, Rush may have his issues, but Axel knows that he will always be there for him.

Whew, this book was dark, twisted, and hard to put down. I give it a 5-star review and need more now! Jaslyn and Axel are playing with fire in this story and I need to know what’s going to happen now. Jasper is the character that you instantly will hate in this story. If you like fairy tales, dark, twisted stories, or forbidden love, then you will love this story. The Prologue was so dark, but in a way, it was also beautiful. I particularly loved the line, “Only in the moments of our death are we flawless.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Wow…such a great story!

Smith Sinclair has better things to do than to try to run off a nosy reporter. He’s head of security for the Wilder’s and his job is to protect them, their family and most importantly, their secrets. He has no idea that this nosy little reporter will turn his world upside down and sideways in such a short time. She’s a challenge he’s not sure he can handle.

Kate McKenna is trying to liver her mother’s life that was taken from her. She enjoys being a journalist, but she wants to do a story that will make the headlines and get her a Pulitzer, not necessarily for herself, but for her mother who sacrificed her life for Kate. Kate has not had an easy life. It seems that trouble follows her and holds on to her no matter what she does.

I loved this story. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting so much more. The song and dance between Smith and Kate is great to read, add in the crazies and the story was beyond awesome. I give this story a 5-star review and whole heartedly recommend it to readers that love suspense, sexy, strong, Alpha men who are taken to their knees by a strong sassy woman, or stories that have twist and turns so crazy that you are looking at the book saying, “What the HECK?!” I loved Kate and wanted to step in and throat punch her family for her. My hat off to Ms. Charles for her writing, each of her books that I read just makes me want more.

Review: Striking Distance by LK Shaw @LKShaw_Author @LWoodsPR #LoveUndercoverSeries #InTooDeep #StrikingDistance #VictorAndEstelle

SD_FBbanner_AvailableNow

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

Is love real or is it just as Estelle has always thought it was, just a joke? Estelle’s parents did a real job on her while she was growing up and they still have the power to hurt her and make her feel as though she has no one on her side. She’s always been able to count on her best-friend, Ines’ family. When she gets into trouble and Ines isn’t around to help her out, the next best person to help her is Ines’ brother Victor, the one man that makes Estelle have butterflies in her stomach.

Victor is a police office. He followed in his family’s footsteps and serves his city the same as his father, older brothers and his younger sister. He’s had a thing for Estelle since she was sixteen years old. He’s been avoiding it for years, but with having her living in the same house with him and only one room away, he can’t deny his feelings any longer. Now he just has to convince her that they should be together.

This story is full of suspense, heat, danger, and the loyalty of family that have each other’s backs all the time, no matter whether they are angry with them or not. This story was fast paced, easy to read and left me wanting more of the characters in this series. I give this story a 4.5-star review and I look forward to the next book. If you like stories about cartels, hot police officers, and family loyalty, you need to one-click Striking Distance.

Excerpt

“How good are you at keeping secrets, Lenora Astalis?” His voice wrapped around my neck like a noose.

I wanted to cough. I needed to cough. He terrified me. I hated him with the heat and passion of a thousand blazing suns. He made me feel like a scaredy cat and a snitch.

“Oh, yes. If you’re coward enough to pretend you’re asleep, you’re good enough to keep a secret. That’s the thing about you, Astalis. I can smash you into dust and watch your grains dance at my feet. My little circus monkey.”

I might’ve hated Vaughn, but I hated myself more for not standing up to him. For not opening my eyes and spitting in his face. Clawing his unnaturally blue eyes out. Taunting him back for all the times he’d taunted all of us at Carlisle Prep.

“By the way, your eyelids are moving,” he said drily, chuckling.

He straightened up, his finger making a brief stop at the base of my spine. He snapped his fingers, making a breaking sound, and I nearly jumped out of my skin, letting out a gasp. I squeezed my eyes tighter, still pretending to sleep.

He laughed.

The bastard laughed.

Was he sparing me for the time being? Was he going to check in on me from now on? Retaliate if I opened my mouth? He was so unpredictable. I wasn’t sure what my life would look like in the morning.
