Betrayal

by Aleatha Romig

Five stars

HOLY CLIFFHANGER

This is the start of my second series by this author (the first being Consequences), and man… it appears she did it again. I truthfully didn’t think she could put out another series as good as Consequences, and yet here we are.
I was not a huge fan of the back and forth between the past and present in the beginning of the book, to be honest. I think the effect would have been the same if it had been a linear story line. That said, it was still excellent! Nox and Charli sizzle- his commanding way coupled with her inexperience is so satisfying. 
I also really bought into the drama with her family in Georgia- the dynamic, what they expected of her, what they were willing to take from her to gain her compliance. It truly presented a hopeless situation. 
I am so very glad the whole series is out so I don’t have to wait to find out what happens next. How does Alex react? Have we heard the last of Bryce? How is this whole thing going to work? I need answers!

One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox “Nox” Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive–he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one: 

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

“Is it really cheating if you’re doing it to yourself?”

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic contemporary romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha’d? 

BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.

This series isn’t about cheating.

Heart of the Devil

by Meghan March

Five stars

Man, what a ride! A great end to another great trilogy from Meghan March. As usual I ripped through all three books like a woman obsessed, dying to know what happened next.
This author crafted some really heartbreaking and frustrating scenes in this one that made me want to tear my hair out. BUT, since we always get our happily-ever-afters with Megan March you know she brought it back around and fixed it. Sour, then sweet. Like Sour Patch Kids. 
I so thoroughly enjoy her stories. I admit that Lachlan Mount from the Mount Trilogy is still my #1 man out of all of her books, but Jericho Forge really put in the work trying to dethrone him. And evidently Forge DID dethrone Mount for many fans if her Runaway Readers group is any indicator.
Another highly recommended trilogy from Megan March, one of only a small handful of authors to whom I grant my automatic and unquestioning one-click.
TIP: go ahead and buy all three. You WILL need them. And don’t start them unless you have time to FINISH THEM ALL in one go. You’ll be sorry if you do. 
Happy reading!

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes the stunning conclusion to the Forge Trilogy. In this final volume, ruthless billionaire Jericho Forge faces his toughest challenge. To emerge victorious, he’ll have to give up the one thing he’s never offered a woman—his heart.


It started as a game. She was nothing but my pawn.

But I was quick to see the error in my ways, and now she is everything I never knew I needed. 

The value of a woman like India Baptiste is beyond measure. 

But the problem with being a man like me? I’ve already screwed this up, and there’s no guarantee India will take me on for one last bet.

I’ll do whatever I have to do. Drop to my knees and offer her the only thing I have left. The one thing that’s only ever been hers—the heart of the devil.

The Forge Trilogy is now complete! Heart of the Devil is the third book of the Forge Trilogy and should be read after Deal with the Devil (book 1) and Luck of the Devil(book 2).

Luck of the Devil

by Meghan March

Five stars

Thank god I waited for the third book to come out before I read the second- that cliffhanger is brutal! 
As usual Megan March has gifted us with a steamy book full of both suspense and romance, heavy on both. Jericho Forge, forever bachelor, really comes around to wanting to find a way to keep India despite their unusual beginning. She is feeling the same way, but it takes a long time for either to admit it. Both are stubborn and independent, so it is a broken road they travel on the way to their feelings, but is oh-so-satisfying.
Recommended, as always.
I’m off to read the final book!

Deal with the Devil

Deal with the Devil (Forge Trilogy, #1)

Deal with the Devil by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Have mercy- where to begin! I’ve never anticipated a book release like I did this one. Ever. And it didn’t disappoint.
Jericho is… he’s…. (fanning myself)… oh, my. He’s arrogant. Bossy. Sexy. In control. All in the best way. I found my own breath catching as the story unfolded, and he and Indy discovered one another. As he awoke something in her that had been dormant for quite some time.
SO hot. Fire. I can’t even handle it that I have to wait a month for the next book.
Those of you that are waiting to read this until the third book is released: I salute your steely resolve. You are better women (or men!) than me.
Highly recommended!

“You can put that man in a suit, but he’ll never be tame.” 
One look at Jericho Forge and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me.
I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose.
I was wrong. 
Now I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil.

King

by T.M. Frazier

Five stars

This book hooked me in right from the start. Oh, the deliciousness of King and Doe. He was possessive of her from nearly the first moment he laid eyes on her… just how I like it! I swooned when he swooped in and rescued her in the beginning of the book. And I thoroughly enjoy an alpha who admits that he knows better, but makes the “bad decisions” anyway. Sign me up, please! 
I loved the solid supporting characters around King and Doe as well. Preppy weaseled his scary ass right into my heart immediately. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to hug him, or pepper spray him. I imagine it would depend on the day. Bear was quite a tasty little appetizer himself. I’m glad we got the chance to experience his story later in the series. Because… yum. Generally I’m not into the biker characters or stories, but somehow it really worked for Bear. Extra bonus? King is included in Kindle Unlimited (KU).

Mafia and CEOs and jerks, oh my!

After reading and reviewing nearly 300 books in the past six months, I finally did it- I made me a blog. Am I more official now? It seems to be so. And so it must be.

Profile: Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes.

If these genres blow your skirt up, as they do mine, check out my reviews. If you are like me, you are forever chasing that next elusive five-star read. Make it easy on yourself, and just cheat off of mine. I won’t tell.

I’m just out here doing my part for humanity. These books won’t read themselves.
