New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil. 

My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.

Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.

I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.

Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.

But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil. 

Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.

Review: 

India has made her living reading people.  What are their tells?  What are their motives? Their moves?  When it comes to Jericho Forge she has no clue what is coming.  The only thing she knows is that she is safe with him.  Not many people can say that.  When she finally decides to try to work things with him he shuts her down.  That was the last time he’ll do that.

Jericho has no clue what he is doing with India.  He’s never felt the way he does when it comes to her.  He has only ever trusted one person in his life.  When he epically screws up with her he must follow the advice of one of his close friends.  Can he earn back her trust and maybe her heart before its too late?

What an epic second book in this trilogy.  Meghan March is queen of these sexy billionaire alpha male romances.  She can also write a kick ass heroine like no one’s business.  This is the second book in her Forge Trilogy.  Luck of the Devil picks up where Deal with the Devil leaves off.  India gets herself into trouble and Forge saves her.  She is no damsel in distress but these men pull no punches and play dirty.  As Indie and Jericho get closer the emotion and feeling between them.  With that come the epic fights that two people who are sexually attracted and stubborn.  I don’t want to give too much away since this is the second book and you need to read the first one but if you are looking for steamy love scenes with a “kraken”  and epic fights look no further.  I would recommend waiting for the whole trilogy to be out…if you can.  When you get to the end of this book you will need the next.  Meghan March is a fantastic weaver of stories.  They draw you in leaving you panting for more.  Her alpha males will give you some sweet dreams to come.

Review: Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart

Today I get to bring to you the magnificent Emma Hart.  If your a fan of hot mess heroine’s then you need to pick up this book.  Emma Hart can write hot mess like no body else.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

42362368Book Blurb:

One hot mess. One hot boss. One too many hot encounters…

It’s not you. It’s me.
No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.

Everything I touch turns to crap. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my sex-mad parents. Yay, me!

Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while.

Ahem.

On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.

Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.

Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.

Or is it?

Review:

Mallory is a walking disaster.  No matter what she does catastrophe follows her.  Her recent mishap with her apartment burning  down and losing her job has landed her living with her parents again.  That alone would have her running but knowing her parents have a very active sex life is making her desperate.  After a job interview she is almost run over by one of the sexiest guys she’s ever seen.  It just figures she also splits her pants.  Mallory thinks her luck is changing when she lands the job.  What she doesn’t expect is the sexy driver to be her new boss.  Can Mallory and Cameron keep their feelings hidden or will they finally crash together like inevitable storm?

I loved this book.  Emma Hard doesn’t disappoint.  Mallory is probably one of the most relatable characters I’ve read.  She really is a walking disaster, but I think every woman has had her days where they aren’t paying attention and almost get run over…or is that just me?  (shrug) Though Mallory is a disaster on two legs it’s her attraction to Cameron and his to her that really make you swoon.  The attraction is palpable with each turn of the page.  Add in Mallory’s bestie, Jade, her aunt and grandpa and I think Mallory gets her disaster tendencies pretty honestly.  No one has a perfect family when you’re a walking catastrophe.  If you are looking for a great light hearted read, look no further than this gem by Emma Hart.

Review: Cruel Money by K.A Linde

Today, I get to bring to you the first book in the newest trilogy by K.A Linde.  She has truly outdone herself with this first book.  If you love sexy billionaire philosophy professors you will love this book.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.

40200480Book Blurb:

She was supposed to be a one night stand.

A way to sate my sexual appetite.

I let her glimpse the man I am. The face that I hide behind my carefully cultivated life. But she ripped open that divide—and there’s no going back.

Now, she’s here. In my city.

I don’t care that I’m Manhattan royalty and she’s the help.

Only that she’s living in my summer home. With me.

And I want more.

Review:

Natalie’s job takes her to different places.  She is a vacation house sitter for the wealthy.  Taking the job in the Hampton’s doesn’t seem to be any different.  That is until she sees the one man she never wanted to see again.  Penn doesn’t recognize Natalie at first.  He does however, appreciate the beautiful naked woman in front of him.  This awkward reunion only gets worse when his wealthy friends are in the house waiting for him.  Natalie finds herself feeling surprisingly comfortable with these people who grew up rich and are still rich.  But, when a bet is made and truth becomes a gray area Penn and Natalie’s relationship will crumble.  Will Natalie and Penn find a way to fight through or will things break irrevocably?

This book takes place 6 years after the prequel One Cruel Night.   You don’t have to read this before reading Cruel Money, but I would recommend it.  It is currently free to read. One Cruel Night introduces us to Natalie and Penn.  You get a little insight into why Natalie feels the way she does.  That being said, Cruel Money, launches the complex relationship of Penn, Natalie and his “crew”.  Early on you know what the major sticking point with Penn and Natalie will be.  It truly isn’t a surprise.  That being said the drama and emotional turmoil the reader goes through with them is incredible.  If you have seen the movie Cruel Intentions this will feel familiar.  It has a lot of echos of that movie.  Natalie and Penn are fantastic complex characters.  Penn’s crew adds the drama and the dynamics between the ultra rich and the normal person.  This book will leave you begging for the next in this trilogy.  If you like drama, emotion and dynamic characters then you will love this new trilogy by K.A Linde.

Review: Tequila, Tequila by Emma Hart

Today, I get to bring to you the newest book by the wonderful Emma Hart.  Her newest romcom takes best friends + a lot of tequila = one oopsie.  For my full review on this fun and addictive read keep reading after the book blurb.

39740460.jpgBook Blurb:

TEQUILA + YOUR BEST FRIEND + YOUR BEDROOM = UM. WHOOPSIE?

Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can’t forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

Review:

Too much tequila has never been Aspen’s friend.  When tequila has her making out with her best friend that ends with a very disappointing sexual escapade she doesn’t know how she is going to move on.  When it appears, Luke doesn’t know what happened either she comes to terms with forgetting the tap, tap, squirt ever happened.  As the weeks go by they both come to realize that they both know what happened and that they may actually want more.  Can two life long best friends really become more or will their friendship implode?

This was such a fun read.  Aspen and Luke were fantastic.  It was really entertaining seeing how their first sexual encounter is discussed throughout the first part of the book.  Not to mention as they start to admit they feel more than friendship for each other.  I do think that the best part of this book were the side characters.  Abuelita, Blaire, Tom, Justin and all of Luke’s family. They really added a great insight to the depth of their relationship already.   Luke and Aspen were definitely a meant to be couple but taking that leap to the next level really added the angst that anyone would feel.  If you are looking for a great rom com, look no further.  Emma Hart never disappoints.

Review: Shadow and Ice (Gods of War #1) by Gena Showalter

 

The Queen of Paranormal Romance, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter, stuns with SHADOW AND ICE, the first title in her scorching new paranormal romance Gods of War Series. Check out the tour stop below and get your copy of SHADOW AND ICE today!

 

Gena Showalter, the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld, introduces a scorching new paranormal romance series… Gods of War.

Knox of Iviland has spent his life competing in the All Wars, where vicious warriors with supernatural powers fight to the death to claim new realms. One winner takes everything—and all losers die. Enslaved as a child for his ability to control shadows, the most ruthless champion in history will stop at nothing to kill his king. But first he must win the battle for Earth. When a fearsome weapon imprisons every combatant in ice, centuries pass without progress…until she walks in.

Vale London craves a fun arctic getaway with her foster sister before settling down to open a bakery. Street-tough but vulnerable, she is unprepared to find ancient gods escaping a frozen cave—merciless beings who target her when she inadvertently enters their war.

Though Vale is now his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can prove victorious, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

Review:

Knox’s life has been spent winning All Wars for his king.  He is single minded in his brutality to win the wars at all cost.  When his and the other competitors are stopped from competing for 1400 years.  Vale has had a tough life.  She wants to take her sister on one final adventure before they start their business.  What she doesn’t expect to find are a group of frozen warriors.  When these warriors break free Vale and her sister are thrust into this war for Earth.  Knox is immediately drawn to Vale.  Though all his instincts pull him to destroy everything…but Vale.  Can Vale and Knox get a happily ever after when their lives are on the line every second of every day?

The Queen of paranormal romance is back.  Gena Showalter’s newest series is incredibly exciting.  She is one of the most talented world builders around.  Knox and Vale are incredibly complex and exciting.  Not only are their characters multi-faceted and relatable but they are steeped in the paranormal world.  Knox and Vale aren’t the only great characters.  The rest of the warriors and their powers and worlds are incredibly detailed and interesting.  Gena Showalter has really done a good job of creating this new series.  It was a little slow at start but once the story really got going it was hard to put the book down to go to work.  If you are looking for a new exciting paranormal romance then pick up this new series by Gena Showalter.

Review: Royally Yours by Emma Chase

Today I get to bring to you a great novel by the phenomenal Emma Chase.  This is the fourth book in her Royally series.  Every dynasty has a beginning and this is Lenora and Edwards story.  This was a really great book.  It has a lot of emotion that will definitely bring tears to your eyes.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  Happy Book Birthday to Royally Yours!

39801783Book Blurb:

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal.

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.

What she isn’t… is married.

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

Even Queens. Especially them.

**

Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there.

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.

**

Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.

This is theirs.

Review:

Princess Lenora has been raised to be the first Queen of Wessco.  But, when it is her turn to take the reigns all her advisors and parliament want is her to get married.  Edward gave up on court life.  He has no drive to be anything but an adventurer.  That is until his brother asks him to come home to take back over.  His brother also has another request…marry the queen.  Lenora and Edward are like oil and water.  Until they finally give each other a chance.  Can a true love story come from an arranged marriage or will Edward flee the life that he desperately hates?

I loved this book.  This is the first in the series that I have read and now I really want to go back and read all the previous books.  This is technically the prequel that starts the family.  Lenora and Edwards love story, though non-traditional, becomes quite epic.  Emma Chase was able to bring all of the heart-wrenching emotions into this book.  You will laugh, cry and swoon before you finish the last chapter.  this is a story that sucks you in and won’t let you go.  I still have a book hang over from this epic love story.  If you are like me and haven’t picked up this series yet, then run out and pick up this fantastically written series that will leave you swooning.

 

Review: The Society (Ascension #4) by K.A Linde

Today, I get the immense pleasure to bring to you the fourth installment of K.A Linde’s Ascension series.  The Society picks up exactly where The Consort left off.  Cyrene and her gang are desperate to find a way to save their world.  What they don’t realize is they will go to places they never knew existed.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.

28577888Book Blurb:

The fourth book in the fantasy Ascension series that NYT bestselling author Susan Dennard called “perfect for fans of Sarah J Maas.”

War is on the horizon.

All while a new power grows strong, threatening the very balance of good and evil.

Desperate to save her homeland, Cyrene goes in search of the dragons that may be the key to ending this battle—and heal her dying friend.

Can Cyrene master her magic to save the world?

Review:

Cyrene finds herself desperate to find help for her bound-sister, Avoca.  While their travels send them in search of mystics and healers she must also learn to control the power within her.  As she is desperate to find answers, Kael has fully taken control of Byern and yearns for even more power.  The network of spies that lie beneath Byern are growing stronger and yearn for a leader to help them take their world from the dark force that is taking it over.  Cyrene knows to win this war she must travel to find the lost dragons.  Will Cyrene be able to do all that is needed and save her friends and the world before the growing power destroys all she holds dear?

OMG!  I can’t even with this book.  I didn’t think this world could get any better than it already was but this book blew my expectations out of the water.  Cyrene’s journey is so enthralling.  Her quest for the dragons, control of her magic and saving Avoca propels this book to a whole new level.  You really sink further into this world and get to see all of the characters grow.  Dean and Cyrene really start to grow back together too.  After the previous book and his betrayal I wasn’t sure if they would be able to salvage anything that happened between them, but their relationship has redeveloped and made their characters more dynamic.  Ahlvie and Avoca are another story that has truly come together finally.  What I truly loved about this book is when the characters that contain the light are present you can almost feel the light radiating off of the page.  In the same token, when the characters that contain the dark are present you feel them drag you into that feeling.  It truly was a fantastic book that will definitely leave you going WTF? in some parts and begging for October 2019 to hurry up and get here.  This book is part 4 in a series that is ongoing.  You will need to read it in order.
