About Breaking Grace:

Two years ago, I murdered the love of Grace Garrett’s life.

I had it all – a thriving company, money, women at my beck and call. Then I shot and killed James Winthrop. And got away with it.

His beautiful fiancé is ruined, so damaged she’s destroying herself. And I’m the reason why.

Nothing and nobody can save her. Except me. Only I know how to help her start again. By wiping the slate clean. Breaking her down until she’s brand new. And rewarding her obedience with the one thing she truly needs. Vengeance against me.

Exclusive Excerpt:

She walks into the courtroom and everyone stops breathing.

Except for me. I breathe harder.

Blood surges through my body like a dam just broke, flooding every distant vein. I flex my fists. The instinct to fuck on sight is so strong I can barely stay in my chair.

It isn’t because she’s beautiful, though she is. Or dressed to kill, ditto. She’s wearing a cream silk blouse tucked into a skinny, ass-skimming skirt and high-heeled sandals that tie like a little suede rope around her ankles. If they’re supposed to make me think of all the things I could do to her, mission accomplished.

Chin high, she strides past the first row of seats. Heads swivel. The chatter stops.

Here she comes, the lovely grieving widow. Not exactly widow. Fiancé. And she’s practically a child, only twenty-three.

When Dolly Parton wrote Jolene, she was imagining a girl like Grace Garrett. With flaming locks of auburn hair, with ivory skin, and eyes of emerald green. The lyrics are like Grace’s own personal Missing poster. Along with a list of the things I jerk off to every night.

There are a few descriptives Dolly didn’t think of, like a click-bait body and a stern, craggy-faced minister for a father. This chick was born for social media. The press loves her. She’s got a good-girl pedigree, and she looks amazing no matter what she’s doing. Sitting, walking, crying, or wishing me stone-cold dead.

That’s the part everyone is here to see. The silent explosion when our eyes meet. The epic, David and Goliath battle between her and me. Evil on one side, good on the other.

That’s what makes me hard. What can I say? I’ve always liked contrast.

Grace doesn’t care if I’m taller, richer, stronger, smarter, and better-looking than anyone she’s ever met. She knows the world loves an underdog, and she’s going to take me down. She’s here to show everyone what a bastard I am.

As if they don’t already know.

My proclivities have been the stuff of gossip for years. I run with a crowd so wealthy and twisted, there are no limits.

When the jury looks at me, they think they know me. They put rumor and wishful thinking together, and create the perfect monster. And they love it. Something makes a brutal sort of sense in their world, and that something is me.

If only they knew what Grace knows, and I know. They’d discover that they’ve got the story backwards.

I’m not the villain in this tragic drama.

She is.

My Review:

First off, this is my first Rose Devereux book. I love dark romance stories and wanted to see how Rose brought her story to life. I was not disappointed. This book starts with the loss of Grace’s fiance when she is suing the man she feels murdered him. We then move to eighteen months later. Grace is still suffering from her loss and pretty much hates her life. Bram is getting on with his life finally. But Grace is always there in the back of his mind. Just when he thinks life is going his way, someone drops a little present off at his house.
This is a story of discovery, secrets, lies, family, and discovery of one’s self. Sometimes you have to be broken to be fixed. But finding the right person to do that, that can be the hard part.
This is a great book and a must read! Love it.

I was in love with the boy. I’m obsessed with the man.

The Vampire Covenant Series by Betty Shreffler 📖 Reviewed 📖

Series: The Vampire Covenant Series 
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 13, 2017 

The Vampire Covenant Series:

If you like paranormal romance books with hot vampires, powerful witches and sexy werewolves in them, then get a taste of my Vampire Covenant Series. This series is steamy, action packed, full of twists, with hot alphas and a kick@ss heroine. 

In the Covenant Series you meet Kayci Pierce, who struggles with choices between love, loyalty, secrecy, betrayal, the life she’s always known and the life she was born for. 

In book two of the Covenant Series, Kayci is pushed into a darker side of herself and is torn between two men. A soldier vampire named, Adrian or an alpha werewolf named, Cass. 

In book three, Kayci must make her choice between them. 

She’s the leader of the Vampire Covenant. Untouchable. Already claimed by another. 

Cass is an alpha who wants more than she can give. He wants her…to be his. 

Her excruciating attraction to him could cost her everything. One man will fight to keep her love while the other will do whatever it takes to win it.
Betty Shreffler is a self-proclaimed nerd and nature enthusiast obsessed with folklore, photography, writing, reading, movies, board games, hiking, gardening and spending time with her husband and five fur babies. Not necessarily in that exact order though. During her outdoor adventures she’s been face to face with an alligator, a bear and a coyote, making for some of the most memorable experiences of her life. She loves to capture and share the world’s beauty through the lens of her beloved Nikon camera. Her work experience has been diverse from working as a Ranger for the National Park Service to management positions in Fortune 500 companies. She’s lived in four different states and moved homes twelve times. She received a BA in organizational management and minor in sociology, although her heart has always belonged to writing and photography. Growing up, she read romance or supernatural novels and jotted down poems and short stories to express her emotions and alleviate the characters’ voices in her head. Not much has changed, only now her stories are lengthier and her characters more interesting.
 Wow. This is my first Betty Shreffler and I really enjoyed it. Kayci always knew she was a little different from everyone else. But it isn’t until after she is attacked by a vampire, that somethings start coming together. That night she also meets Adrian, a very old vampire. I loved how that this is a “real” story. It is not just full of sex and biting. I liked how Kayci takes everything in stride and doesn’t freak out about all the changes she is going through. Adrian has lived a long time and has never found someone to make a life with, let alone a “human” but he can’t stay away from her. Especially now that she is who she is. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review. One-click this wonderful series!

When I started writing this review I was really conflicted because this is such a good book, it hits everything you could want in a paranormal romance. But anything I seem to come up with didn’t seem to hit the mark. So here is what I came up with after an hour of debate.
Incubus is the start of what is shaping up to be the start of a wonderful series. Roth and Lilah are an unexpected couple which to say it takes a long time for them to get there. This wonderful story takes you from Mount Olympus to our world, to Hell. Lilah and Roth are complicated beautifully written characters that bring the paranormal world to life. This is a must read!

I was sitting on the sofa, drinking my rum. It tasted mercifully strong, so I went for it. Anything to numb my senses. I was wishing I’d never come out of my crazy haze. Reality was scary as hell, and I was low on courage.
Rip was next to me, his arm around my shoulders. “I’m going to enjoy having you around,” he’d said.
I wanted to down the rum in one. With no tolerance, I’d be drunk. Maybe I’d be out completely. Looking down, I could see his cock bulge in his jeans. The thought of being at the mercy of this man terrified me.
As I sipped at the iced rum, that awful beating came rushing back.
Mitch snarling, “Don Valentine says she’s to disappear.”
“She won’t come back from where I’m taking her.”
A boot in my ribs. “Make sure you fuck her up the ass from me.”
They had planned to have me tortured as a sex slave for the rest of my life. I’d escaped them, only to land in exactly the same kind of trouble. It made me sick to my stomach. Was a rape worse than a beating? Soon I’d find out for myself.


My Reviews:

Book 1: The Bonus:
I am a huge fan of mafia and dark romance books, and this being my first AJ Adams book I always go in with a very open mind. So with that in mind, I gave this story a go and jumped right in having no idea where this story was going to take me. There is no backstory or really any names to go with, this is not your normal story. There is, however, a woman on an ice block hanging from a tree with a bunch of men around her hoping that either she will hang herself or the ice will melt so it does it for her. While two other men talk about other things.
This woman happens to become “the bonus” and so the story starts. This is a darker story with some BDSM involved. But does have a happy ending. I did enjoy this book and all that it entails and was so happy to go to the next book.

Book 2: Songbird:

This book drops you right in the middle of a new story with the big boss Arturo Vazquez whom we met in the first story The Bonus. While Arturo is doing what he does best killing people he meets Solitaire, a woman so much like him it is scary. These two are wonderful characters and I devoured this story. Just to know you don’t have to read these stories in order and always make sure you read the warnings from the author!

Book 3: Dirty Dealings:

This is another story that I LOVED. Quique is a lower man on the totem pole and his wife is a real skank. He has done everything he can to keep her happy but she just loves men. So we see all of this unfold. After he asks for a divorce from the family he is asked to go overseas to work out some issues for the family. There he meets Natalie. These two get on each other’s nerves and yet the chemistry is off the hook. What a great book to bring everyone together again.

Book 4: Dark Hunter:

I love this “family”, and by that, I mean everyone involved in the Zeta Cartel. Yes, these are darker romance and somewhat erotic but there are romance and intrigue involved also. And this 4th book brings that out. There is also something else to say about how this author writes, I have read all of these books in order but by means do you have to which is something you can rarely say.
This story is wonderful and a must read if you enjoy anything that I have mentioned in any of my reviews for these books! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

So I am having a hard time forming this review. First off this is my first Kailee Reese Samuels story so I had no idea what exactly I was getting into.
This is a story of a young woman (Iris) finding the love of her life and after a very short time loosing him.
Iris is given a box when her husband’s will is read. With this box she in bark’s on an adventure that will take her to a whole different world.
That is the easy part to write, what happens at Juliet is a weird and messed up and well what probably happens all the time in places. So yes, I find some of the things that happen in this book messed up, but the core of the story is wonderfully told. The characters are complexed, wicked, and sexy. I couldn’t put the story down and this is not a story you can skim. You have to read every word.

Salt Kissed Love:
So after reading Juliet ( and you have to read Juliet before reading this one) and meeting all the unique characters from this town and BDSM school/club. With this story, we get Sal learning more about himself with Iris as his main event. Iris is also growing up and learning to embrace herself when it comes to this life. This book is so much more than just about BDSM although it is the main event. We again see the characters from Juliet and the wonders that came from that story. The emotions fly off the pages of this book, so much so that you can not put it down.There is a lot of layers going on in this book but it is so worth reading it. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
