⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Natalia has finally come to terms with her feelings for Cristiano. When she’s afraid that she’s going to lose him for good after an attack, they finally consummate their marriage and find their days filled with happiness, strategizing, and working together for people of the Badlands to be successful and safe. The only trouble is that they are still in danger and their HEA is not guaranteed. Natalia has metamorphosed from a protected and sheltered princess to a strong, deadly Queen ruling beside her King

I love this series and the conclusion was full of danger, twists, angst, and heartbreak. My need to know the ending of Natalia and Cristiano’s story kept me reading this book until I finished it shortly after midnight. The love between these two is beautiful, I love Cristiano’s statement to Natalia about love, “Love is, I’d die for you.”; “Not, Will you die for me?”. The love between these two is steamy, intense, and unbreakable.

I give this book a 5-star review and enthusiastically encourage you to read this series. Ms. Hawkins did a great job concluding the love story of Natalia and Cristiano de la Rosa. A tragic, beautiful ending to a twisted love story. Full of angst, enemies-to-lovers, slow-burn, coming-of-age, dark, cartel and more.

Review of Guts & Glory: Hunter (In The Shadows Security Book #3) @JeanneStJames #TuesdayBookBlog


⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5-stars

When Hunter is tasked to find the half-brother of a friend, he didn’t expect that he would find his other half. The man he’s been tasked with finding is bad news all around and he is dangerous. Hunter may not be in time to save Frankie and Leo.

Frankie is not a trusting woman and she has too much to lose if anyone finds her. She’s tough, tiny, and a momma bear who will do anything to protect her home and her family. Hunter will discover this very quickly and he won’t forget it.

I love this story and the way that Frankie protects her family is exactly how I feel about mine. I love the Guts & Glory Series and Hunter is just as great as the other two, Mercy and Ryder. These men are loyal, lethal and very sexy. I give this story a 4.5-star review and cannot wait for the next book in the series, Walker. These books are definitely one-clickable.

Sacrifice by ➜ N Isabelle Blanco is #LIVE #OneClick #KindleUnlimited #TuesdayBookBlog ⚡️ #NewRelease #Giveaway ⚡️

Title: Sacrifice
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: N. Isabelle Blanco
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019

Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection and part of the Dark Paranormal Ryze Series, but can be read as a Standalone!
We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
Eventually, mutated.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.

I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.

An interesting twist to the mythology that I am used to. “He chose to become a God; I was forced to become a nightmare. Now it’s time for us to meet again”.

The story of how Herakles lived after becoming a God, and the bad choice he made to sentence the love of his life to an eternity of Hell and torture. Can he show her that he regrets his choice and really does love her, or is it too late?

Megara is sentenced to a life of torture and Hell. She made a bad deal with the sister who despises Herakles, and it is Megara’s destruction as well. She will never forgive him for this betrayal. She wants him dead at her hands and she has been promised her redemption by Hades himself.

This story is tragic, twisted, and hard to put down. I give it a 4-star review. This is my first novel in the Ryze Series, but I will be reading more. I need to find out what happens in the leg of their quest. If you like fantasy and mythology, you really should read this book. Besides it’s another great read in the Sinister Fairy Tales.

ARC Review of Nashvegas Nights (Dirty South Book 2) by Kat Addams @GiveMeBooksPR and @KatAddamsAuthor

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

This story is a story of second chance romance with a new romantic interest, a sexy, sassy redhead, and a sexy Nashville singer who is stuck in his past.

Dorothy “Liz” Elizabeth Prudence is a sexy, funny, sassy redheaded nurse who is afraid of commitment. She has her best friend from birth who is always there to help her out of the bad decisions she makes. They are late 20-year old’s who still enjoy going out on the town and having fun and finding trouble to cause. Luckily for them, Liz’s best friend, Jess’ husband is always close by to keep them from too much trouble, listen to their crazy antics, and be the sound of reason for both of them. These two are crazy, funny, and very close.

Jason Jones is a Nashville singer who is stuck in his past. He works as a barista during the day and sings at bars during the nights. He is working as a barista to get experience for his own business. His best friend, Deuce, his ugly dog, live in a nice house outside of town. Deuce is Jason’s only consistency in his life. Jason is compassionate, sexy, and working very hard to find a new normal and move on with his life, but he needs some closure before that can happen, but one night with a sexy redhead may be his chance to move on.

I really liked this story. I laughed at the antics of Liz and Jess and how Jason described his past experience with a redhead. I loved chapter 8 and was glad I was home alone reading this section because it had me laughing so hard out loud that I had tears in my eyes. I also love the Spotify playlist for this story. I’m a redhead and some of the antics and comments about redheads were pretty spot on. My husband has made the comment about crazy redheads to me as well. I give this book a 5-star review and recommend it to readers who are looking for a laugh out loud read with some angst and crazy women. This was my first read by Kat Addams, but it will not be my last, I’m going to one-click Grit and Grind to read as well.

ARC Review of: Consumed (Dare to Risk Book #4) by Danielle Pays @GiveMeBooksPR and @DaniellePays



⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

Josh Morgan is returning to the one place he always felt at home, until he left the one person that meant everything to him. Josh Morgan has just found out that the man he thought was his father wasn’t. Now he has a lot of changes to get used to because what he thought was his life has now changed.

Shawnee Seymour has had a rough time in the past year that she has to overcome, but nothing compared to what she will have to overcome in the near future, her past. A history that she really thought she wouldn’t have to face again. Will things turn out differently this time?

I really enjoyed reading this story. The suspense, danger, and intensity of this story kept the pages turning and my hope for a reconciliation kept my interest until the end. I give this story a 4.5-star review and recommend it to readers who enjoy reading second chance romance, stories with surprises, suspense and heat.

My 5-Star ARC Review of Master of Secrets (Gods of Vegas Book 4) by Sienna Snow @GiveMeBooksPR and @sienna_snow


Master of Secrets Teaser 2

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Wow, I have to say this was my favorite book so far in this series. This story was full of secrets, suspense, intrigue, and Alpha males who try to control the strong, sassy independent women in their lives.

Anaya is keeping a huge secret from her family. When the only man she ever loved dejects her, she decides to leave Vegas and live her life in shadows.

Adrian is an exceptionally gifted hacker and agent for the CIA, he is undercover working on a very dangerous case and has to make contact with an agent from a private group that is trying to get into the scene he’s working on to bring them down. Only this agent could get Adrian made and get them both killed because he will do anything to protect this person.

I loved the secrets, intensity and heat in this story. Everything unfolded perfectly and had me on the edge of my seat. I wanted to know what was going to happen and how things would end. I was in no way disappointed. While all of the Lykaios brothers are hot and very Alpha, their little sister Anaya can’t bring the heat as well.  I give this story a 5-star review and recommend you read the entire Gods of Vegas Series as soon as possible.

ARC Review of Cold Queen by K Webster The second book in The Sinister Fairy Tales @KristiWebster #TuesdayBookBlog

Now Available (1)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

This book was reminiscent of Frozen to an extent, but it definitely isn’t my granddaughters Frozen.

Two young sisters are left home alone while their parents travel. They’re the daughters of the King of the Norta Icelands, King Whitestone. Elzira is the oldest and next in line for the throne. Yanna is the youngest Elzira’s half-sister, but she’ll protect her with her life. King Whitestone’s army, the Eyes of the White will protect them both from the Easta, Westa,and the Souta, as well as the damned. Queen Whitestone can control the weather, but her powers are weakening.

King Ryke Bloodsun of the Souta has headed Norta to meet with Queen Whitestone to join their lands and marry the Princess to accomplish that. However, he’s not prepared for what he finds when he arrives. King Bloodsun can control fire and is known as a Volc because he comes from the land of the Volcanos.

I really enjoyed this story. It is dark but it was a quick paced story with a lot packed into it. This story is full of deceit, tragedy, heat, and redemption. I love how it covered so much of the lives of the King and Queen as well as the strength and power of the Queen once she was shown how she was being deceived by those she cared about and trusted. These two are much more powerful together and kick some serious bad guys keesters. I give this story a 4.5-star review and recommend it to readers who like PNR, dark stories, with some seriously strong women.
