Road To Fire Release Blitz with ARC Review!

Release Date: April 30

It’s dark, it’s gritty, and there’s a pretty good chance it’s the royal romance you never even realized that you wanted. Your new anti-hero obsession is almost here—do you think you can handle Saxon Priest?

“I’m not scared of you.”
I meet her gaze. “You should be.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.

Defender of the Crown.

To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.

And then she appears.
Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to buss tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.

“Hire me,” she begs.

We’re on opposite sides of this war. Enemies from the start.

Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.

A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.

And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “I could use you.”


Road To Fire was absolutely, without a freaking doubt, IMPOSSIBLE to put down! No, really, I was IN-FREAKING-CAPABLE of putting this book down. This has been the first time in at least a year, maybe two, where I finished a book in less than 24 hrs. Road To Fire was a MASTERPIECE of lies, deception, grit, and hard core passion that set my heart to flames!

Isla and Saxon are incredible, scarred and strong characters. Complete fire the other ice but they had a undeniable bond that immediately claims you from the very moment they meet. There was so many unbelievable, mind blowing, adrenaline inducing twists and heart-wrenching betrayals that blew me away and kept me tied to the story from start to finish. And the heat, passion and sexual tension is something to be remembered and savored for a long time to come. I tuned out EVERYTHING as I read this and i can't begin to tell you how long its been since I did that with a book. I was yanked HARD into this book and I got lost in this dark, gritty world and I loved it immensely. The sex is HOT AS F**K and I devoured those scenes and they left me feeling hot, bothered and itching for more of that delicious, dark temptation! When I hit the end (and oh boy, what an EXPLOSIVE one at that!) I slowly came out of this book, shattered, ruined and still utterly transfixed by this twisting and dark world that I am now truly obsessed and HOOKED on. I am now BEGGING for the next one ASAP!! FREAKING AMAAAAAAAZING READ!

Netgalley ARC Review - Rage And Ruin (The Harbinger #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout!


Dangerous secrets and forbidden desires lead to shocking consequences… Don’t miss book two of the fantastical Harbinger trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.

“Jennifer L. Armentrout’s intoxicating new fantasy is her best yet!” —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter on Storm and Fury

Half-angel Trinity and her bonded gargoyle protector, Zayne, have been working with demons to stop the apocalypse while avoiding falling in love. The Harbinger is coming…but who or what is it? All of humankind may fall if Trinity and Zayne can’t win the race against time as dark forces gather.

As tensions rise, they must stay close together and patrol the DC streets at night, seeking signs of the Harbinger, an entity that is killing Wardens and demons with no seeming rhyme or reason. Forbidden to be with each other, Zayne and Trinity fight their feelings and turn to unusual sources for help—the demon Roth and his cohorts. But as deaths pile up and they uncover a sinister plot involving the local high school and endangering someone dear to Zayne, Trin realizes she is being led…herded…played for some unknown end. As anger builds and feelings spiral out of control, it becomes clear that rage may be the ruin of them all.


Diving back into Zayne's and Trinity's story was as EPICALLY thrilling, simmering with passion, and as stupendously witty as I ever could of imagined!

Rage and Ruin was stunning and unpredictable and at the end, a true heartbreaking tear jerker. This book captivated me and twisted me up inside in the best way. Add in more fantastically interesting times with old favorites like Roth, Layla and Cayman, made this even more fantastic! I could not in a million years, predicted the ending and let me just say, it was a MIND BLOWER and RIPPED ME TO ABSOLUTE SHREDS! I now have to know what happens next with a desperation that is leaving me feeling anxious and eager and like I'm standing on the edge of a cliff. Bring on more Trin and Zayne PLEASE!

Rage and Ruin gets a WHOLE SKY FULL OF STARS! Five is definitely not a big enough number of stars for this well deserving story. Utterly heart wrenching and completely addicting! 

ARC Review - Counting On Cole (Wilde Ways #8) by Cynthia Eden!


She was the one who got away. The one who ripped out his heart and took it with her when she left.

Cole Vincent never expected to see Evangeline Lake again. Back in the dark and bloody day, he’d been hired by her brother to save her in a mission that went straight to hell. Evangeline had been kidnapped and held for ransom, but he’d been sent in with a covert team to get her out. Thrown together in the dark, a stunning attraction burned through them. But she wasn’t meant to be with an ex-soldier who had a past that was littered with secrets and death. She went back to her fancy world. He went back to hunting. Tried to forget her. Case closed.

There are some people you can never forget.

Evangeline “Evie” Lake fell hard and fast for her tall, dark, and dangerous rescuer. Then he flew her back to her home, kissed her goodbye on the doorstep, and walked his sexy self away with looking back. He broke her heart into a million little pieces, and she swore off the “bad boys”—they were just trouble she didn’t want. Case closed.

She needs help. The kind that only someone like Cole can give to her.

The past is coming back to attack. Evie’s kidnapper was never caught, and when she’s nearly abducted in New York, her brother calls in the one man that he knows he can count on…the one man who has proven he can protect Evie from the worst threats out there. The one man that Evie absolutely, positively does not want to see again…

The only man she’s ever loved.

Cole takes the case. Becomes her bodyguard. Gets far too close to her and stirs memories that should have been dead and buried in a six foot hole. The white-hot attraction burns ever brighter between them, but Evie will not fall for him again. Will not. Except…

She is. He is. They are…falling.

Cole wants Evie more than anything, and this time, he won’t walk away. This time, there is nothing that can keep them apart. He’ll fight like hell for the woman he’s always loved. He finally has a second chance with Evie. He won’t screw this up. And he will not let her go again…he will prove to Evie that she can always count on him to keep her safe.

She is the only one he wants. The one who owns his heart. Anyone who wants to hurt her? They have to go through him. Case closed.


A second chance romantic suspense I won't soon forget is RIGHT HERE with Counting On Cole, the magnificent and well written, 8th Wilde Ways novel! I have been waiting a long while for Cole's story and its finally HERE and it was EVERYTHING! Cole had to work hard for his second chance and the sparks and chemistry between him and Evie was astounding and life changing and 100% endearing!

I never get disappointed when I read a book by Cynthia Eden. Especially one of her fabulous romantic suspense stories. And Counting On Cole was especially good. The heartache, the heart pounding suspense, and weak-in-the-knees romance and passion made this story impossible to want to put down. Cole sometimes said the wrong thing, but oh mama, he knew how to make it up to Evie in THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY! And the fact that Evie knows how to take care of herself was inspiring. How she handled herself after she almost gets kidnapped again right after Cole comes back, actually makes me consider taking some martial arts and self defense classes myself. This was awesome and I LOVED Cole and Evie so much! The story was packed full with heat, danger, sweetness, and wit that made this extra special. I so am ready for what's next!
