Legend by Tracy Lorraine

I made one mistake…

And she made one phone call that nearly destroyed my life.

I’ve spent the past year plotting my revenge and imagining all the wicked things I’d do to her when our paths finally crossed again.

I just had no idea it would be so soon.

The last thing I expected when I re-entered the world was to find myself right in the middle of hers.

The girl who betrayed me, the snitch who ruined me—here for the taking.

While she’s been oblivious here in Rosewood, I’ve been trapped in hell.

Better watch your back, Harley Hunter.

You’re about to be owned by a Legend.

Dear Reader,

Legend is the highly anticipated final book in my Rosewood High series. It's a dark bully high school romance with the high levels of angst, steam, and emotions you've come to expect from my boys!

 

ANTIDOTE (Beasts of Prey, #1) by LC Lehesaho

แƒฆโ™ก AVAILABLE NOW โ™กแƒฆ

Falling in love is easy. Surviving from the mess it can make is everything but.

For the past five years, my heart hasn't belonged to me. I've always known it's not very rational, but the day when it said bye-bye to me and moved to a room next to mine—I knew I'd never get it back.
Tiger is a hurricane and the calm after the storm all at once, my best friend and the one I'd die for. But life is not a fucking love song, and people like us don't get happy endings. Especially when you're a daughter of Shangri-la's biggest crime boss, and the one holding your heart is your foster-brother.

You said that we're doomed from the beginning, but you know what, baby girl? We're not doomed. You are.

If Cobra thinks that she can deny me, she's sorely mistaken. When her father dragged me out of Hell, and she enchanted me with her pink hair, bruised face, and heart of gold—she got a stamp on her ass, which reads Tiger Hayes all over it.
She gave me my name, said that I'm a beast like them, so she should know better—never run or the beast will chase.

But somebody's watching us, playing games from the shadows, and now we have to find out who's the biggest predator in the city before it's too late.

The Free (The Wild, #2) by K. Webster

๐Ÿ’— BOOK REVIEW ๐Ÿ’—

This is Atticus Knox's book.
Coming March 6th, 2020!

He took me from the wilderness.
I was all alone and death was near.
His plan was to heal me and then let me go.
A reprieve from my harsh reality.

Food. Warmth. Safety.
Just us.
It’s temporary and one day I’ll be forced to go home.
But I don’t I want to go back.
I want him to keep me. To tame and love me.

Freeing the wild comes with grave consequences.
He thinks they’ll cage him for being with me.

Our love’s not right.
They won’t understand it.
Forbidden. Immoral. Perverse. Vile.

I don’t care what they think.
It should only matter to us.
We are innocent and beautiful and worthy.

Love is wild.
And we’re going to set it free.

 

Dirty Girls by Lily White

แƒฆโ™ก BOOK REVIEW โ™กแƒฆ

They were the boys any good girl knew to avoid.

Rich and privileged.
Gorgeous and cruel.
The poster boys for rebellion…their tongues so sharp they cut to the bone.

We worshipped them despite their dangerous games.
We laughed even as we cried.

It was all fun and games until the first dirty girl died.

Now, as the bodies pile up, I believe I can endure their wicked ways. Only time will tell if I’ll escape.

Because when wealthy boys are accustomed to getting everything they want, not even the lives of those around them are too high an asking price.

Sins of the Father (Ravens Ruin MC, #1) by Marie James

โœฆ #ReleaseBlitz โœฆ #Review โœฆ #BadassBikerAlert โœฆ #Giveaway ($75.00 Amazon Gift Card & Paperback) โœฆ

I’m not misunderstood.

I’m not confused about my position in life.

I’m not looking for answers to explain why I am the way I am.

This is the logic others use to try to make sense of me. According to them, there has to be a reason for my apathy. There has to be some sort of explanation for the calculating way I run my Club. There has to be a root cause for my depravity.

They can’t wrap their heads around the fact that I’m evil, that I’m darkness personified. Doing so would force them to acknowledge that the Devil has left Hell and is living among them.

Most people may think I’m Satan, but I answer to Lynch, President of the Ravens Ruin MC, and the Antichrist doesn’t have sh*t on me.

MANIK by Amo Jones

โœฆ #ReleaseBlitz โœฆ #Review 

I’m Beatrice Kennedy, but everyone calls me Beat. I live a low-key life, fresh out of college and drifting from town to town until I find my home. 

I love music, and how it stirs even the deepest and untouched parts of your soul. Depending on what you choose to listen to, would depend on what it touches. It’s the drug we all damper in, only different strains. My strain is Jazz. The smooth instrumental strums that take over me. The sound of cigar smoke, bourbon and an old dusty fedora hat. My strain wasn’t rap, and it sure wasn’t laced with some A-class shit like murky blue eyes casted down from the Lord and the Devil’s handcrafted smile. I knew who he was—the whole world did. One fateful night set off a chain of events, events that no one was coming back from. You can’t save people who don’t want to be saved. You can’t pull them up from the ocean when they’ve latched themselves to an anchor. Love was my anchor, destruction was the water that was drowning me, and the rope that was so tightly clamped around my ankles, was woven with the lyrics of Aeron Romanov-Reed, also known as, 'Manik. He steals hearts from all around the world, but one night, he stole something that wasn’t his to steal. 

Me.

Their Ruthless Sadist (Office Intrigue, #5) by Nicole Edwards

โœฆ #BlogTour โœฆ #Excerpt โœฆ #Review โœฆ MMM BDSM Romance

By definition, a Sadist is one who receives sexual gratification from causing pain and degradation to another. 

That’s me to a T. 

I only play with those who understand what it means, those who are willing to indulge my devious desires. 

Any masochist who seeks me out knows that if they trespass, I will gladly shatter them and walk away, leaving them for someone else to put back together. 

Yet the cowboy and the pretty boy have given themselves to me. They have agreed to play by my rules and there is only one: THERE ARE NO RULES. 

I have warned them. I’m not looking for companionship or love. I don’t want to be their friend, their confidante, or their lover. I’m in it for pleasure only. In the form of pain. 

I am ruthless. 

I am a Sadist. 

And I make no excuses for it.

Beauty Found (Hades Hangmen, #6.5) by Tillie Cole

โœฆ #NewRelease โœฆ #Review โœฆ #BadassBikerAlert

EVEN IN HELL, THERE IS BEAUTY TO BE FOUND.

There is life before the Hangmen. There is life before your soulmate is found.

There is life even when all seems lost.

Shane ‘Tank’ Rutherford is just seventeen when, escaping his father’s lethal fists, he ends up on the streets. Fighting for survival, he finds himself suddenly saved. Saved by a group that takes him under their wing.

A group that everyone knows . . . the Texas Ku Klux Klan.

Years later, Tank is disillusioned from the Klan and what they stand for. Recently released from prison, he is lost in a world he no longer knows. He is on his own. Until he picks up a woman hitchhiking on the side of a road. A beauty queen dressed in pink.

Susan-Lee Stewart is done with the crowns. She’s done with the glitz and glamor of pageant life. And she’s done with the bruises . . . the bruises gifted by the one person who should love her unconditionally—her mother.

Seconds after taking yet another pageant title, Susan-Lee makes a split decision and flees the stage. Flees the glossy life of a pageant queen, flees her violent mother . . . and jumps straight on the back of a tattooed muscled god’s motorcycle . . .

And never looks back.

As Susan-Lee holds tightly to Tank’s waist, neither of them know it’s a chance meeting that will change both their lives, and their hearts, forever.

There are stories of how you find your other half. There are stories of how someone can save your soul when all hope is lost.

Before they were Tank and Beauty, they were Shane and Susan-Lee. Two lost hearts who, together, were finally found.

Contemporary dark romance. Contains scenes of violence, offensive language, mature topics and sexual situations.

Vacationing with a splash of blood…

Rennie Laval was about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. A virgin cruiser, what better way to pop her cherry than onboard the luxurious Norwegian. Set to sail to the sunny Caribbean on a week long vacation, her only expectation was to soak up the warm sun, and spectacular sights, all while consuming frothy umbrella drinks.

Travelling solo didn’t faze her, not when she would be a part of a group of cruisers, known fondly as “Book Splashers.” A unique author signing event at sea, getting the chance to attend was a dream come true for an avid reader like Rennie. The large group of more than three hundred authors, readers, photographers, models had welcomed her with open arms. The hosts, Harper Sloan and Felicia Lynn, reassuring her she’d never be left on her own. 

Duke Kincaid was fed up with life. After catching his fiancee in bed with his best friend, he spontaneously booked himself on a cruise, needing to get away from their betrayal. A Caribbean vacation was just the escape he needed. Colliding with another solo traveller while boarding, a beautiful brunette, seemed like fate. A little fling on the open waters would definitely go a long way to wiping out unwanted memories.

While he and Rennie grow closer on and off board the ship, they’re both flung headfirst into a nightmare when members of the Book Splash start showing up dead. The first tragic death seemed like an accident, but when the body count rises higher than imaginable, and the deaths become more gruesome, it’s clear that a sinister force is stalking the ship, focused on the members of their group.

Trapped in the middle of the ocean. 
Ensnared in a deadly game of kill or be killed.
What would you do in order to ensure your own survival?

For Rennie, Duke and the Book Splashers, their dream vacation may be their last.

Unless, of course, you’re part of HIS films. 

Ethan Cole was one of the best directors in the business until the day he disappeared. He was charismatic, gorgeous, intriguing and so brilliant that no other person could compare. People believed he’d simply quit. In truth, he’d gone underground.

I found him after being stolen from the streets. I was thrown into his new world, his fantasies, his decadent chaos, and I found myself fighting just to stay alive.

He seduced me while tormenting me.
Made me a star while keeping me hidden from the public’s eye.
He asked me one simple question before shoving me in front of the glittering lights and dark lens of his camera.

One question, requiring only one response:

Fuck or Die?

After a party gone wrong and in desperate need of money for the fall semester of college, twenty-year-old Nora Robertson needs to escape her hometown. 

She accepts a summer long live-in tutoring job for a handsome man and his little sister at a secluded home deep in the mountains.

There is no running water.

No electricity.

No internet or cell service.

When her tutoring job ends she's hit with a brutal turn of events ... she's not permitted to leave. After months in captivity, she makes a harrowing escape with her student that ends in a car accident on a desolate road. When Nora comes to, her student is missing. In a desperate attempt to find the girl, Nora will have to recount her time held captive. 

The good and the bad. 

Can Nora and the authorities work together to find the man who took her? Will they rescue the girl Nora tried to save?

Author’s Note: This is a dark romantic suspense. 
Trigger warning: all of them. This will not elicit warm fuzzy feelings
