ALC Review of Blades of Arris: Sithe by Starla Night!

 



BLURB:

It’s a routine mission. Hunt down the ones who dared – dared – steal our sacred procreation metal from us, the rulers of the empire.

The Arrisans conquered Earth in a day. They smashed into our helpless planet like a wrecking ball, and overnight, everything changed.

That’s what our history books say.

The truth is, I’ve never seen an Arrisan face-to-face. But when my lone medical ship is attacked by ruthless pirates, the nightmare that hunts them down is no hero. Cloaked in assassin’s gray, metal scythes fused to his wrist-bones, he is the grim reaper of the conquerors. The Arrisan elite special forces. A blade.

Luckily for me, he’s in a good mood now that he’s the last man standing in the blood-soaked ruins of my bridge, so he lets me live. After all, I’m just a lesser. Clearly I’m no threat.

Until his body starts reacting to mine…

*** From the author of the Lords of Atlantis and Onyx Dragons comes a dazzling new series full of unique alien shifters, fierce passion, and loyal warriors who find their fated mates in the stars. Each full-length book is a complete romance with an epic happily-ever-after. Claim your conqueror today!

TRIGGER WARNING: coercive situations may disturb readers who enjoy my other enthusiastically consensual series.
 


MY REVIEW:

I admit I do not listen to a ton of audiobooks. Yet I am REALLY glad I was lucky to snag an ALC of Sithe because it really brought the whole story to satisfying life! 

I really liked the narrators for Sithe. I loved that there was more than one; one for Catarine and one for Sithe. Having a dual narration was not only enjoyable but it was easier to get into the story and I found everything going on in the book to be much clearer and sexier and more bold if that is even possible. I honestly loved it and really I am psyched to get the next audiobook! I am thinking I may just have to get this book in both paperback as well as audible too because I loved it so much. 

Just going on the narrators and how the story was read, I give this amazing audiobook a SPECTACULAR FIVE OUT OF THIS WORLD STARS!!

ARC Review - Santa's Subpoena (The Anna Albertini Files #4) by Rebecca Zanetti!

 Santa's Subpoena (The Anna Albertini Files, #4)


BLURB:

So Much for Peace During the Holidays

Anna Albertini has her hands full during the holiday season. Her boyfriend Aiden is back in town after being undercover across the country for the last three months, and his sudden over-protectiveness is a little too much. In addition, Nonna’s latest matchmaking scheme has been so far thwarted by the two most stubborn candidates alive, and Nonna is out of patience and bringing out the big guns. Anna is forced to both protect her sister and run interference, when she’d like to jump in and find a happily ever after for everyone instead.

To add to her already hectic life, her life-long stalker is about to make a move and doesn’t hide that frightening fact, although Anna is more than ready for him. In fact, she’s willing to draw him out to finally bring him down—regardless of the consequences. Finally, Santa has been arrested and charged for murder, needing a good lawyer. Who would arrest Santa? Anna can’t let this stand. It’s a good thing Christmas is a time of magic and miracles, because she’s going to need one.


MY REVIEW:

Its amazing how much one lawyer can get into a ton of trouble during the holidays! Leave it to Anna Albertini to find trouble and to keep things interesting during Christmas time. 

Santa's Subpoena is a fun filled, action packed, swoony romantic suspense that had me feeling 100% happy and craving more Aiden and Anna! Aiden is the perfect hero too. He is the perfect hero to help Anna with all the trouble she seems to find herself in. And what a crazy ride it is too! I really loved the sweet happy ending to Santa's Subpoena that still today, has me feeling all warm and fuzzy as well as knowing that the conclusion to Anna's nightmares finally comes to a close. I can't seem to get enough of these Anna Albertini stories! I love Anna and her personality and her sweet nature and I can't help but to swoon and melt when it comes to Aiden. I also adore Anna's entire family and hope to see some more of them get HEAs too. I can't wait for the next one!

I give Santa's Subpoena a FIVE FESTIVE STARS! It really is SOOOO VERY GOOD!

ARC Review - Jinx, You're It (Trouble For Hire #3) by Cynthia Eden!

 Jinx, You're It (Trouble For Hire #3)


BLURB:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Eden brings a red-hot tale of second chance romance between two unlikely lovers.

Life is too short not to have one hell of a good time.

Jinx lives for his good times. With a ready smile and quick joke, his charm carries him through most rough situations. And when his grin doesn’t work, he just uses the down and dirty skills he acquired working Special Forces to get the job done. Life is easy, his luck is perfect, and nothing will slow him down. Except maybe…her.

It was a one-night stand she should forget.

Allison “Ali” Carter does not have time for handsome playboys—not even the ones with killer blue eyes and abs that last for days. Sure, she might have given in just one time and let her desire for Jinx take over, but she is not about to repeat that mistake, no matter how great the night was. She’s down on the Gulf Coast for a week of sun and relaxation. Jinx isn’t part of the plan.

Until he is the only plan.

Trouble has followed Ali down to the coast. On her last classified mission, she acquired a most dangerous stalker. The kind of guy that you can’t ditch, no matter how hard you try. The kind of guy who can scare a woman to death. And to help Ali deal with him? A most unlikely hero offers up his services.

He wants his second chance.

When Ali walked away from Jinx, it shouldn’t have hurt. He should have forgotten her and moved on. But since that fateful night, she’s been in his head. Been tormenting his dreams. So when she appears in his PI office and she’s in danger? Jinx immediately leaps into action. He’ll show Ali that he’s more than just a fast grin. This time, it’s not about being lucky. This time, it’s about protecting Ali and maybe, just maybe…winning her heart.

Author’s Note: Jinx is about to get lucky. He’s getting a second chance with the woman who slipped through his fingers, and he isn’t about to let her vanish again. Ali thinks he doesn’t take life seriously, and she may just be right. But, when it comes to Ali’s safety, Jinx will go all in to prove that he’s the man she needs. Danger doesn’t scare him. Behind his grin, he’s ice cold and willing to do whatever it takes to protect the one woman who slipped past his guard. Action, romance, danger, and fun are waiting in JINX, YOU’RE IT. (Stand-alone read, guaranteed happy ending!)


MY REVIEW:

Jinx, You're It was a stupendously fun, sexy, suspenseful good time with one HOT hero who was full of surprises and a heroine who is pretty freaking awesome too! 

I have been waiting for Jinx since he was introduced in this series and I am ecstatic to say, his story did NOT disappoint! Sexy, fun, protective and hiding some jaw dropping secrets, he is definitely one of my favorite book boyfriends in this series. I loved how he could be serious when it was necessary but I absolutely LOVED MORE that he knew how to have fun, even when on dangerous jobs. Ali was really freaking cool too. She has her own secrets and hidden depths that I really liked about her. Her dedication to keeping Jinx safe too was amazing and she was pretty bad ass as well. She was so smart and kind and just had a beautiful soul to go along with her outer beauty. She really fit Jinx and the chemistry between them was definitely off the charts! I was beyond happy with this book and I can't wait for the next one! These Trouble For Hire stories are absolute GOLD!

Jinx, You're It gets a FIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER STARS from me! And just in case you didn't get it, I VERY MUCH LOOOOOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK!

Loner by Jamie Schlosser Release with ARC Review!


Title: Loner
Series: A Good Guys Novel (standalone)
Author: Jamie Schlosser
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 12, 2021




ROSALIE

I’ve been a prisoner in my own home for as long as I can remember. My mother says I’m sick in the head, and that’s why I can’t leave. And maybe she’s right.
But that doesn’t stop me from watching our new groundskeeper from my window and wanting things I shouldn’t. Like his hands on my body. His lips on my skin. Just him and me, running free in the world.
All I want is a normal life, but it’s a fantasy. Insanity.
Because no one would want a crazy girl like me.

PRESTON

I broke the cardinal rule of the private investigator business—I fell for my client’s daughter. When I agreed to go undercover to get Rosalie out of her house, I had every intention of bringing her to her father. After all, it’s what he hired me to do.
But Rosalie’s life is a tangled web of mystery, tragedy, and lies. Her loneliness calls to mine, tempting me with a chance at redemption I never thought I’d have. I refuse to deliver her from one hell to another.
Even if it means risking my life.

MY REVIEW:

Loner is a fairy tale retelling dream come true for me in full good guy series fashion!

Loner was a sweet, amusing, sexy and sincerely heart stopping irresistible romance that makes this final book in one of my all time favorite series one of the best endings ever! I am sad that this series is ending but exceedingly satisfied with this final book. Preston and Rosalie made me smile so much and I enjoyed this version of Rapunzel more than I ever imagined I would. This story really did give me the warm and fuzzies and I didn't for a moment want to stop reading it. Yet, I forced myself to take my time. And really, I think that was the best thing because I really savored this. I made it last as long as I could and now that I read it, I am looking VERY MUCH forward to doing a re-read of the whole Good Guy series. But before I do that, let me tell you all that you will SWOON, fall head over heels HARD for Preston. And Rosalie will make you laugh and smile and dream big dreams. These two have a sweet connection that I adored very much and there were moments of pure bliss, excitement and sweet and sexy romance that made this book the best thing I have read all year. I really can't say enough great things about Loner, I honestly can't!

PROLOGUE

She was just supposed to be a job I turned down.

I’ve been picky about my clients before, and when I was approached by a man with ties to the mafia in search of his daughter, my immediate answer was no. His personal private investigator had recently died under mysterious circumstances, and I didn’t want to meet the same fate.

Then I saw Rosalie’s picture.

I should’ve walked away.

I didn’t.




Jamie Schlosser writes steamy new adult romance and romantic comedy. When she isn't creating perfect book boyfriends, she's a stay-at-home mom to her two wonderful kids. She believes reading is a great escape, otters are the best animal, and nothing is more satisfying than a happily-ever-after ending.

BLURB:
I thought I made a deal with the devil. Turns out he’s a fallen angel. Very fallen.

Not only is Dominick Vicario tall, dark, and wickedly attractive, he’s also the head of the world’s most powerful underworld family. And the leader of the Fallen—former heavenly Watchers banished to earth who’ve become wealthy playboys.

When I meet him, my life is circling the drain. My job is going nowhere, my boyfriend is a jerk, and I’m in debt up to my eyeballs.

So, when the dangerously seductive mafia don offers me a deal that will solve all my problems, I take it. All I have to do is spend the rest of the summer with the mysterious billionaire. A couple of months jet-setting on private planes and yachts isn’t too high a price to pay, right?

But Dominick believes I’m destined to be his mate—and the key to all the fallen angels being restored to their rightful place in the celestial order.

And it doesn’t matter if I think he’s crazy. He’s convinced I’m his for eternity. And so are the demons chasing us.

Can I escape from his immortal curse? Or will his dark past come back to haunt us both?

MY REVIEW:

A devastatingly addictive, sizzling PNR that I devoured in just a couple short days because nothing could slow me down on reading this!

Mark Of The Fallen was SO GOOD! When I seen this pop up on my news feed a few weeks ago, I KNEW this was going to be an excellent read and wow, was I ever right. Sexy, intriguing, edge-of-your-seat-and-bite-your-lip-till-it-bleeds exciting, this PNR was everything I had imagined....maybe even more so. The characters and storyline drew me in and kept me fascinated and entertained right from the very start. I loved the action, suspense and the hot and steamy scenes. There were moments I didn't think I was even breathing because it was overwhelmingly good. I can't wait to see what else this author has next!
