The Bad Guy

The Bad Guy by Celia Aaron My rating: 4 of 5 stars An easy and enjoyable read This was my first read by this author. Often I struggle with standalone books after getting so used to the character/story development afforded by a series, but this book did it well. There wasn’t an exorbitant amount of […]

Spark (Stronger Series #3)

Spark by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars Excellent series As with the other books in this series, don’t go looking here for romance-you won’t find it. This is not a dark romance. I’ve seen it described as an erotic thriller, and I have to agree that is a better description. There are […]

Survival (Stronger Series #2)

Survival by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars Horrifying and disturbing, but good Disclaimer: I do not consider this a romance, not even a dark romance, so if that is what you are looking for you might want to skip this one. (EDIT: the author describes this series as a “dark erotic thriller,” […]

Stolen (Stronger Series #1)

Stolen by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars I don’t even know what to say about this book. I really don’t. I’m not sure it’s fair to refer to it as a dark romance… the dark part is accurate, but… there is no romance to be seen. I have read some pretty dark […]

The Hit: Bratva Vows Book Two

The Hit: Bratva Vows Book Two by SR Jones My rating: 4 of 5 stars Great series I felt less urgency to finish this book than I did with the first two of this series, but it was still a really good read.I loved the miscommunication, and that they loved each other but both were […]

The Trap: Bratva Vows Prequel

The Trap: Bratva Vows Prequel by SR Jones My rating: 5 of 5 stars Oooh- my interest is piqued! This short novella is an excellent prequel leading to the next book, which I can’t wait to start! This book was a great length to set the scene for the coming books. It introduced the main […]

Conor (Boston Underworld #6)

CONOR by A. Zavarelli My rating: 5 of 5 stars All the feels I love this whole series. Just love it. I was skeptical when I saw the length of this book as I usually find books under 200 pages to feel rushed and underdeveloped, but somehow this one didn’t suffer that fate. Maybe it […]

Thief (Boston Underworld #5)

Thief by A. Zavarelli My rating: 5 of 5 stars This series ❤ I just love this series. Not sure what else to say. And this book in particular drove me crazy. I spent the majority of the book feeling like Nikolai could just go to hell, and he didn’t deserve Tanaka. I wanted her […]

Saint (Boston Underworld #4)

Saint by A. Zavarelli My rating: 5 of 5 stars Love this series! What can I say? Another winner from this author!I’ve been tearing through this series. I thought this book started a little slower than the others, and it took me a few chapters to get into it. Luckily it isn’t the first in […]
