Every woman in my life has let me down, hurt me, or abandoned me. Which is why the only female I hold close to my heart is Hallie– my daughter.

But being a single father comes with certain challenges, so I hire a nanny.

Someone who can do her hair, tell her stories, and be the motherly figure she doesn’t have.

When Mia starts, I know she’ll be perfect, but I have to keep her at arm’s length. I tell myself it’s because I don’t know how to fix her broken soul from the past she’s so desperate to hide, but in reality, it’s more.

The way I feel about her scares me. She’s beautiful, feisty, and so incredibly kind.

Although I try to deny it, I can feel myself falling for her. And when our pasts collide with the present, we have no choice but to face our demons together and fight.

Will I be able to finally put my fears aside and find true happiness?

🔥🔥HOT NEW RELEASE🔥🔥 SKIN DEEP by Bella Di Corte is LIVE! Review included @Bella_DiCorte @WildfireMarket1


SKIN DEEP by Bella Di Corte is LIVE!

🔥#1ClickHere →


Life in three steps: Go to college. Get a job. Marry the girl of my dreams.

I went to college, then got a job with one of New York’s most notorious gangsters.

The girl? I lost her to a man who didn’t deserve her.

So, when one of Italy’s most famous women made me a proposition to help me win her back, I couldn’t refuse her offer.

Georgina “Gigi” Dolce wasn’t the shallow Italian principessa I took her for, though—and she was out to wreck my well-laid plans.


Harrison Ryan thought he had me all figured out.

Because the world called me “beautiful,” he assumed I only ran skin deep. But he had no idea who I was beneath the surface.

How I craved to be loved by someone loyal and unwavering like him. How far I would go to claim that love for my own.

And when I wanted something, I considered it mine.

I wanted him.

#newrelease #needtoreaditnow #readyourheartout #wildfiremarketingsolutions

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

He had a list, a plan for his future after his injury. He was determined to follow that list and plan, but his plans are shot to heck with Mari met Mac. Now Harrison’s plans are defunct as well as his list. He may have one more chance, but his life is still up in the air. The beautiful woman that walked up to him and asked him to dance along with proposing a deal with him, will turn his world upside down as well.

Georgina “Gigi’s” life isn’t what everyone believes it is. She is beautiful and in the public eye, but her life is not her own. She sees two faces in the mirror when she looks at herself. She has to fight for her sanity and the darkness surrounding her, but maybe the handsome man that she sees at her cousin’s wedding could be her bright light and bring her from the darkness.

I really liked Harrison and Gigi’s story. It was dark, pain ridden, and eye opening. Harrison sees more than Gigi’s beauty, but it takes a while for him to see it. This story had so many sides to it and brought so much to the surface for the reader. Harrison and his brothers have a lot to overcome just like Harrison and Gigi did for their relationship. I look forward to more of the Ryan brothers and the women that will bring them down. I give this story a 5-star review.

🔥 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗥𝗘𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗘 with Review ➜ Corrupted Pleasure: Age-Gap Mafia Romance by Eva Winners is 𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘 @EvaWinners

Title: Corrupted Pleasure
Author: Eva Winners
Genre: Age Gap Mafia Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2022

★★★★★ Intel Chicky Reads Romance (Kara Merideth) – “I’ve read all of Eva’s mafia books and this one was a bit of a departure from her usual tales, but what a totally fantastic ride!”

★★★★★ Karen_Lee_Reads – “Readers get humor, shenanigans, a couple whose hot and steamy relationship keeps readers happy and a truly nice Irish Mob leader.”

★★★★★ Jess and the Traveling Chair – “I CANT. GET. ENOUGH. Y’all this book is one that you stay up until 2AM to read because its mysterious, SPICY, and the perfect amount of possessive alpha male.”

The first time I saw him, I knew I’d never want another man the way I wanted him.

The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.

And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.

Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.

Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.

He only wanted one thing…

Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.

Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Four college friends that met their first year of college. Two are related, one comes from familiar family, but one is new to the group and fits in perfectly. They are the Ride or Die kind of friends. She has no idea about who her family is because her parents didn’t want to raise her. Now Davina’s part of a mafia family by association. One mistake and the lives of all four girls turns upside down. They’re making some crazy decisions.

He’s the head of the Brennan Mafia family and he is connected to some very powerful people. He’s also the father of Davina’s best friend. He will do anything to protect his family while he and his son work to take down those that killed his best friend and his family. He includes his daughter’s group of friends as part of his family and watches over them and protects them.

I loved this story of forbidden love, age-gap, and crazy young girls doing their best to find their way in a world of power, protection, and overbearing men. They do some crazy things and believe they are getting away with all of it, but there is always someone watching. I love Eva Winners’ books; she writes her characters with so much charisma and character that they feel like friends. Her books have made me cry and laugh, but they always leave me wanting so much more of her characters and their stories. I give this book a 5-star review and I cannot wait to read the Kingpins of the Syndicate Series books.

He’s a grumpy, cold-hearted billionaire.
—A workaholic that demands perfection.
He’s ruthless, harsh, and unforgiving in all aspects of business.

But that’s not the man I fell for.

I’ll never forget the smooth talker who shared my cab that day—so carefree and full of life.
Stuck in a loveless, arranged marriage, I was out of options.
Until he came along and flipped my world upside down.

But that was then, and this is now.

The man I knew is gone, and all that’s left is a shell where his heart used to be, and lumps of coal in place of the warm eyes that used to watch my every move.
Instead of the romantic, sweet man I came to know, he now wears an impenetrable mask of indifference.
I’m just not sure I can fight for a man I no longer recognize.

Praise for the novel:
‘I never saw this coming! This story has all the twists and turns that you come to expect reading a Lagomarsino book! Rose and James have amazing chemistry!! I loved this story!’ ~★★★★★ Goodreads Review

“James,” my father barked, causing me to grit my teeth. I never once knew him to speak to me in a kind voice. Everything about him was abrasive and set me on edge.
Knowing I had to acknowledge him at some point, I turned and took off my wool coat, handing it to my father’s butler, Thomas. Composing myself, I followed the sound of his voice to his study where he already had a cigar lit as he looked through some documents.
“John Wallace will be here soon. I need you to look after him for me.”
I gritted my teeth, knowing what was coming. “Sure.”
His eyes met mine in a hostile way that would have scared any board member, but I was used to him. “Not sure. Before Michael’s death, Wallace and I were on the verge of merging our companies. We would be the largest corporation on the east coast!” he said, slapping his hand down on his desk.
“You can still have that.”
“You know the stipulations of merging our companies.”
I did, and my brother had readily agreed. It was a gentleman’s game, one in which the merging of companies was sealed with a marriage. It didn’t make sense. Those old fashioned values, the days where a handshake was as good as your word were long over. Any deal could be made now under the right conditions without having to sacrifice your happiness.
“I’m not marrying his daughter.”
“Kimberley is a very nice woman.”
I rolled my eyes at his description. The last time I had seen her, she was meek and boring. Not to mention, her looks left a lot to be desired. Her dirty blonde hair was always a frizzy mess, and the freckles sprinkled over her nose made me think of Orphan Annie. I wasn’t the type of man to judge a woman solely on looks, but I did think there had to be an element of attraction. But above all that, I wanted to like being in the company of my wife. An arranged marriage wasn’t at all a guarantee of happiness.
“She may be nice, but I will not be forced into marriage. I’m not Michael.”
He scoffed at that, his disappointment in me obvious. “I’m well aware that you are not your brother. You prove it to me every day you defy me.”
“And you thought the day of his funeral was the perfect time to bring this up? You can’t even let us mourn him before you shove me off on his fiancé?”
“Business never sleeps. If we don’t move on this now, he’ll make a deal with the Connelly Group. That family is ruthless. If he makes a deal with them, we’ll never expand the way we need to. Is that what you want, for our company to limp along?”
I found it funny that he thought the Connellys were ruthless, when he was planning my marriage on the day of my brother’s funeral. My father was one of the most hated businessmen in the city. People despised working with him because of how unforgiving he could be in a business deal. For that reason alone, I wanted nothing to do with the company.
“I will not marry her,” I said forcefully, my fists clenching hard as I stared him down.
He stood from his desk, buttoning his suit jacket as he walked around to confront me. “It’s a requirement for you to take your place as CEO.”
I huffed out a laugh at that. “We both know I won’t be CEO. You will run the company until you’re dead.”
“But the board needs a fresh face, which is why I was voted out in place of your brother. But make no mistake, the company is run by me.”
“I’m aware of that.”
“Then you know you need my approval to take over.”
“I’m not looking for your approval. This isn’t the life I want. I will never run this company,” I said, turning for the door.
“Then they’ll vote in Jerry Wright.”

Author Bio:
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

James was the second in line for the family business and he wanted nothing to do with running it or taking on the responsibilities of being in charge. Even if he were to be in charge, he knew that his father would be pulling his strings, even if he did say he was retired. When tragedy struck the family, James had to step up whether he wanted to not, if he didn’t the family would lose everything his father had worked for all his life. While he didn’t want the responsibilities of running the family business, he also did want to see his parents lose everything. He will have to take over the top spot in the family as well as marry to secure that spot.

Rose has always knows that she would be a pawn in her family. Her father would marry her off to someone to gain more power, more money, more everything, but she didn’t want to be a pawn. She wanted to live her life on her own terms. Her future has been decided and planned. She was to marry a boring man that didn’t care for her and wanted to live his own life. A get away by herself to a beautiful beach could ruin her future or make it more bearable.

Another great story by Giulia Lagomarsino. I can’t seem to get enough of her books. I love her characters and her stories. There is always a great story with humor, serious situations, and crazy characters that leave you wanting so much more to be shared. The Shifting Sands Beneath Us was no different and it did not disappoint as a book by Ms. Lagomarsino either. The story was a Billionaire Beach story that has some steamy scenes, some sad scenes, and some funny situations where I was laughing so much. The secondary characters were just as entertaining as the main characters, and I would love for their story to be shared as well. Shane and Clarissa are great, and I would love to read their story as well. I give this story 5-star review.
