Collateral Collage

Collateral: an Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance


Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. He stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck.

I thought he’d strangle me with it.

That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.

I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.

He’s come to make good on his promise.
He’s back to take that something precious.


Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.

Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.

And she is most definitely mine.

Damage: an Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I.

He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan. The only difference is I have a ring the size of a boulder on my finger and a husband I don’t want.

And the hardest part is I thought he was different. I thought I was falling in love.

I guess my father was right. I’m not a very smart girl.

Stefan is a powerful man. He doesn’t play nice, not if you’re his enemy. But I’ve learned one thing about my husband.

He takes care of what’s his.
And I am his.

His enemies have become my enemies, but he’ll never let anyone hurt me. He’s fiercely protective. It’s the predator inside that scares me.

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5-stars

Gabriela Marchese has been kidnapped and is in danger by an unknown captor. Stefan has no idea where she is, or if she’s still alive, but he won’t give up looking for her.

Gabriela is still being used as a pawn and it’s being noticed that she is Stefan’s weakness. His enemies are starting to take notice and are closing ranks on him. There’s chatter in the family that he should not be the leader of the family and there are some in the family who are working with his enemies to remove him.

I absolutely loved the ending of this series. The twist at the end was a shocker but was a good one. I give this book a 5-star review and highly recommend the series to mafia, arranged married, and strong, sassy women lovers. Natasha Knight is a great author of angsty, sassy women, and strong personalities. I love her books and this one did not disappoint in any way.

Title: Venom
Collection Title: Sinister Fairy Tale Collection #1
Author: Dee Garcia
Release: October 15, 2019
Genre: Dark PNR/UF

Venom_SM (1)




From the moment I befriended him, I set a conspiracy in motion.
A revolution.
Kill Peter Pan.
And I was their ultimate weapon.
I was also none the wiser, falling hopelessly and irrevocably in love with him as the years went by.
Just as they hoped I would.
But their plan comes to a screeching halt when Peter vanishes into thin air, something I’ll learn has nothing to do with Rosewood at all.
You see, Peter never truly loved me…because he loved a wench instead.
He lied to me, he used me, he left me, and he broke me.
Forever altering me in ways that incite revenge when Hook sweeps in with revelations and the ultimate truth.
Peter may have turned his back on me, but in the end, he and his precious little Wendy will choke on every last tear I once shed.
And I’ll have Hook to thank for that.


It’s no secret I always despised Peter Pan.
A common threat amongst the factions, I should’ve killed him when I had the chance, long before he sank his claws deep into Tinksley’s heart.
But his death at my hands wasn’t what the plan called for, despite how I felt for her.
I’d always been drawn to the girl, innocently enough at first…until that vile abomination marked her with his stamp, unleashing a sense of propriety I had no rights to.
Didn’t matter—he had her…and I wanted her.
Then like magic, he disappeared.
I thought my time had come, but the road to owning Tinksley’s heart comes with a price.
A price so dark and depraved it strips her of her purity and awakens the beast within.
All because of the truth.
Sometimes, there is honor in revenge, and it will be my utmost pleasure to watch as Peter Pan finally meets his maker.
His maker who will soon be my Queen.

Don’t do it, Tinksley. Turn around, says the angel on my shoulder, a voice I’d forgotten existed amidst the demands of depravity.
Do I listen? Of course not.
I have to know what’s happening. I’m too intrigued not to.
An intrigue that continues amounting as I pass this hand-carved archway with thick spiraled pillars. The pillars themselves aren’t what draws me—it’s the marionette puppets hanging off each one. They’re both female; one blonde, one brunette, both surprisingly quite scantily clad unlike a typical puppet.
I’ve never seen one like this before.
Reaching out to graze the tips of my fingers over one of their wooden bodies, I—
“Boo!” a husky voice ghosts in my ear.
My heart shoots up to my throat as a terrified scream breaks free. Next thing I know, I’m spun around, staring into amused blue eyes.
I literally feel myself deflate in his grip before I can react accordingly.
“What the f*ck!” I shout, wiggling myself free.
Callan chuckles darkly and shakes his head, crossing his arms over his chest. “Look at you. So crass these days.”
I mimic his stance. “What can I say? I learned from the best. You’ve got one helluva sailor’s mouth yourself.”
“I’m not a sailor, love.” He smirks. “A pirate? Yes. The Captain? Obviously. Not a sailor, though.”

Review of Venom (Sinister Fairy Tale Collection #1) by Dee Garcia

Wow! Talk about a different telling of a fairy tale, this story really fits that build.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 🔥 stars out of 5

This is the tale of Tinksley and Hook, and this is not your average fairy tale, nor is it the story you remember from your childhood, but it is a great telling and so well written.

This was my first story by Dee Garcia, but after reading this one, I don’t think it will be my last! This story is a mix of your childhood telling of the fairy tale, paranormal, heat, and characters that are so well written that they come out of the pages and you feel as if you are living their lives at times, or that you’re in the story watching it unfold with the written words.

This story is twisted and dark, but oh so yummy. I will not be able to watch or read Peter Pan again and see it the same fairy tale of my youth. I loved this telling of Tink and Hook, and I am looking forward to more Sinister Fairy Tale stories in the future. I give this story a 5-star review and highly recommend that you one-click it and devour it as I did.



My 4-star Review of Foolish Riot (A Riot MC story) by Karen Renee


Title: Foolish Riot
Series: Riot MC Series
Author: Karen Renee
Genre: MC Romance (can be standalone)
Release Date: September 24, 2019

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5-stars
Patricka “Trixie” has spent ten years trying to get Roll to commit to her. He told her in the beginning that it wouldn’t happen. She’s ready to move on and leave the MC behind and find herself a man that will love her and give her what she thinks she wants. If she could find someone that compares to him but doesn’t have the fear or commitment, she would be all set.

Roll knows that Trixie is his and she is what he wants, but he’s afraid that he won’t be able to give her what she wants out of life. The trouble is that he can’t let her go either. He’s selfish and wants her all to himself. The Devil Lancers may take care of the problem for him.

I couldn’t put it down. It’s full of heat, Alpha males, and sassy, take no crap women. I love Trixie, but these two were giving me anxiety with their non-communication. Big bad bikers who are private and keep crap to themselves and women who take no crap from anyone or as Trixie was known, the Venom Vixen, who is not afraid to be very blunt, make for a lot of drama and anxiety.

I loved this story and hated for it to end. Although, I did love the ending and the way that Roll finally let things roll off his back and accept that Trixie was it for him and he was it for her. I give this story a 4-star review and highly recommend it to readers who like MC, sassy women, and Alpha men who protect what is theirs.

Blog Tour, Giveaway and ARC Review of Sound by Catherine Fearns @rararesources @metalmamawrites #TuesdayBookBlog


Can you hear it?

A professor of psychoacoustics is found dead in his office. It appears to be a heart attack, until a second acoustician dies a few days later in similar circumstances.

Meanwhile, there’s an outbreak of mysterious illnesses on a council estate, and outbursts of unexplained violence in a city centre nightclub. Not to mention strange noises coming from the tunnels underneath Liverpool. Can it really be a coincidence that death metal band Total Depravity are back in the city, waging their own form of sonic warfare?

Detective Inspector Darren Swift is convinced there are connections. Still grieving his fiancé’s death and sworn to revenge, he is thrown back into action on the trail of a murderer with a terrifying and undetectable weapon.

But this case cannot be solved using conventional detective work, and D.I. Swift will need to put the rulebook aside and seek the occult expertise of Dr. Helen Hope and her unlikely sidekick, guitarist Mikko Kristensen.

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5-stars

I devoured this book. It pulled me in from the first page and wouldn’t let me go until the end.

I love Ms. Fearns books and find that they make me think and ponder on the subjects and the content of her books. While they are centered around religion they are not books about religion, but about the world around us and how most people ignore what is around them. I found the quote below to be true and eye opening.

“Nowadays we are afraid of silence. We need the constant buzz of television, music, chatter. But I say to you today, do not be afraid of silence, for it is only when we are silent that we can be close to God. Is it any wonder that deaf children were once thought of as angels? For their ears are unsullied by the corrupt sounds of this Earth?”

A story of a detective searching for something to make him feel alive again, a retired nun who teaches theology at a local college, and her love for metal music, and a Swedish metal band that all seem to somehow come together to solve such terrible crimes. They are each from such different worlds, yet they all work so well together.

I really enjoyed reading this book and give it a 5-star review. I highly recommend it to readers who are looking for a story that’s a bit different, but enjoy police procedural, crime, and psychological thrillers. If you are interested in any of these genres, then you really should pick up Sound by Catherine Fearns, but you need to read Reprobation and Consuming Fire first.

Review of Christine: Heaven Hill Short, book #2 by Laramie Briscoe


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5-stars!

Wow! Thank you for writing Christine’s story. It is heartbreaking, healing, and beautiful. I loved it.

Christine is still feeling guilty for Travis’s betrayal of Heaven Hill. She is cutting herself off from the club and her friends believing that she doesn’t have the right to be friends with them any longer, and that she betrayed the club and her friends. The club does not feel that way, they still feel that Travis betrayed them, but if she comes clean with them, I am sure that they will understand a lot better.

I give this short story a 5-star review, and highly recommend it as well as any Heaven Hill book.

Review of Kill Switch (Devil’s Night, Book #3) by Penelope Douglas

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 out of 5-stars

Another great story in the Devil’s Night series. I have loved all of the books so far and this book does not disappoint. With Damon being the most feared member of the group, this book was awesome and showed how Damon became who he is. This story is full of twists, turns, and mayhem.

Damon has come back for the one woman who ever understood him but also destroyed him when they were younger. He was revenge for serving time for something that was not a crime. He is also playing a part in his father’s little scheme to rule the little town they live in. He has his father believing that he is following his dictates, but he has his own agenda and finds that his heart is not as black and broken as he thinks it is.

Winter’s mind has blocked a lot out about what happened to her when she was eight. With the help of her father’s brainwashing due to his hatred of the Torrance family, she believes what she has been told all these years and when Damon comes back for retribution for what happened when they were teens, she has a hard time keeping all of the facts straight. She remembers the good parts of Damon from when they were teens, but the accident from when she was younger keeps her a prisoner in her mind about Damon.

I love this book and give it a 5-star review. Penelope Douglas knows how to write a story about hate, revenge, twisted minds, and the line between love and hate. The characters in this story as well as the other books in the series are characters that you want to hate but can’t help but love. They are destructive, wild, and just looking for acceptance in life, something they never had as children growing up in wealthy families with parents who only cared about money and power. I can’t wait to read Will’s story.

Review of Owning Madison by Elisa Leigh

Madison is running from a past that left her embarrassed, feeling alone, and unlovable. She has fled to a small town and is trying to move on and live her life. She keeps to herself and tries not to draw too much attention to herself. She’s had enough of that to fill a lifetime and now she wants to be unnoticed and left alone.

Joe is retired from the military and owns his own garage in the small town he was raised in. He’s forty years old and tired of hook ups and one-night stands. He wants a woman to spend his life with and take care of. He knows that Madison is young, but he can see himself living a good life with her. He doesn’t know about her past, but he really doesn’t care either. He wants her and he will go for what he wants.

This was a quick read and it was easy to read. I give this story a 3.5-star review. I recommend it to readers who like older man younger woman romance.
