In a world where there’s only one woman for every twelve men, a lottery is the chance for five lucky men to win the prize of a lifetime… her hand in marriage.
 
Nix never put his name in the marriage lottery for a reason.
He doesn’t need a woman.
There aren’t that many to go around anyway, not after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population.
He has his job as the head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he needs. He looks out for the township. He protects the few women who are left.
 
But when his name is called to be one of the five husbands to the woman rescued from the badlands, he doesn’t speak up to correct the error.
 
Because Audrey’s like no one he’s ever met before.
Feisty.
That’s the word for her. She might be just the woman to handle a rough, brutal man like him.
 
Sharing her with four other men is a small price to pay.
In fact, the closer they all grow, the more Nix realizes he might finally have again what he lost so long ago—a real family.
 
But when Audrey’s life is endangered, will Nix be able to save the woman he’s just learned how to love?
For a limited time, enjoy included bonus content. Theirs to Protect is 300 pgs and ends around the 58% mark.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is my first Stasia Black story and from the very first page, I was hooked. I love reverse harem stories but dystopian and apocalypse stories are a hit and miss for me usually. But this story is freaking awesome.

We meet Audrey and her brother trying to get to Nomansland where woman are supposed to be safe from men. In this world, there is barely any women around and the men have gone nuts. When Audrey and her brother are attacked by some men she runs and gets caught by Nix and his men.

Nix brings Audrey to the town he lives in. This is where they are keeping to as many traditions as possible. But one of the new ones they have is the lottery, one woman to every five men. They do this every time a woman is introduced into the town. This is so she is protected, and the human population can continue.

We have Nix, Mateo, Danny, Graham, and Clark each have their own past and each has their own problems. But they all want Audrey and all want to make sure she is loved and taken care of. But Audrey does not make it easy on any of them. And when she finds herself in the middle of something dark and scary in the town she is new to, she doesn’t know if she can trust the men she knows little about.

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent
a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.
 
She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?
Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

“What do you do in your free time?” he asked.


Was this an interview or was he just making small talk? He didn’t strike me as a small talk kind of guy. “Since I moved to Brooklyn, I’ve been checking out the neighborhoods. Taking photos. And visiting art galleries. I run every day. And I draw and paint.” I wasn’t sure why I said that. I used to draw and paint, but it had been six months since I’d picked up a pencil or paintbrush.

“Which artists do you like?” He tilted his head, as if the answer really mattered to him.

I didn’t know what kind of answers he was looking for, or how this had anything to do with bartending. “I like Picasso. Especially his Blue Period. Frida Kahlo. Willem de Kooning. Rodin’s sculptures. And the street art and graffiti in Brooklyn.” 

I stared at the black and grey inked tattoos on his left arm. I’d add them to my list of art I liked. Intricate designs, interwoven with thick swirls and chains. A shield of armor on his upper arm. An anatomical heart and dagger. A Celtic cross. A banner trailing down his forearm, with words written in script. Not English. Latin? I wanted to know what it said and meant to him.

“Why should I take a chance on you?” he asked, reminding me of the reason I came here in the first place.

I dragged my gaze back to his face. God, he was gorgeous. His face was a study in symmetry. My fingers itched to hold a charcoal pencil so I could sketch him.

“I’m looking for a fresh start.” Something like recognition flickered in his eyes, but it was so fleeting, I might have imagined it. “That’s why I moved to Brooklyn.”

“By yourself?” he asked.

I nodded.

“That’s brave.”

I wasn’t sure about the brave part. So far, it was lonely. And a lot harder than I’d expected. “I really need this job. Brooklyn is expensive. And I can’t go home. I just…can’t.”

He studied my face, and I wondered what he saw there.

“These are the rules. Number one: don’t lie to me. Number two: don’t steal from me. You ring up every drink you serve. You don’t give free drinks to your friends. Number three: no drugs. If you break any of my rules, you’re out. Got a problem with anything I said?”

“Are you offering me a job?” I asked, gripping my lower lip between my teeth to keep from smiling. His gaze dropped to my mouth and lingered there before he shook his head and looked away.

“I’m offering you a chance. Not everyone is cut out for bartending. So?”

“I don’t lie, steal, or do drugs.” The two times I’d smoked pot with Trevor didn’t seem worth mentioning.

I held Killian’s gaze until he nodded, satisfied I was telling the truth. My face broke into a smile, but he held up his hand to stop me from getting too excited. “You’ll have guys hassling you. When they get drunk, they say and do stupid shit. I’m not saying it’s right,” he shrugged one shoulder, “but you’re not unattractive, so you’ll need to deal with that.”

“I’m not unattractive? Are you always this charming?”

“If you’re looking for Prince Charming, it ain’t me, sunshine.”

Sunshine? At least he didn’t make any empty promises or pretend to be something he wasn’t. “I don’t believe in fairytales. Or happily ever after. Prince Charming was an evil villain in disguise, and Cinderella was the doormat he wiped his feet on.” His brows went up a notch. “So, don’t worry. I’m not looking for Prince Charming. I’m not looking for a guy to sweep me off my feet either. I’m just looking for a job. And I can handle guys hassling me. My dad and two older brothers taught me how to fend for myself.”

He raised a skeptical eyebrow. “Did they?”

“Yes, they did. My dad and brother are state police officers and my other brother is a Marine. I grew up in a testosterone-fueled house with enough badassery to rub off on little old me.”

His lips curved into a smile, showing off his straight white teeth…and—oh God, dimples. He had dimples. But the smile faded all too quickly, as if he’d caught himself doing something he shouldn’t, and the mask slipped firmly into place again.
Emery Rose has been known to indulge in good red wine, strong coffee, and a healthy dose of sarcasm. She loves writing sexy alpha heroes, strong heroines, artists, beautiful souls, and flawed but redeemable characters who need to work for their HEA.
 
When she’s not working on her latest project, you can find her binge-watching Netflix, trotting the globe in search of sunshine, or immersed in a good book. A former New Yorker, she currently resides in London with her two fabulous daughters and one grumpy, but lovable Border Terrier.

Series: Guarding Her by Anna Brooks Includes- Surface 📖Review📖

Title: Surface
Series: Guarding Her #1
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 11, 2018


 

She was off limits. Too young. The boss’s daughter. Forbidden.

 

I knew it all along, but it didn’t change the absolute possession I felt when it came to her… nothing would change how I felt about her.

So I did what I had to; I waited until the time was right to make her mine, only to find out there is one thing that could ruin it all.

 review
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow. Surface is my first Anna Brooks story and I loved it. This is a great start to a new series.

Royce is an over the top alpha man that loves his woman and will do anything for her.

Paisley is a sweet girl that is very well protected girl since her dad owns a security firm. Royce just happens to work for him.

These two have great chemistry and I love this storyline. I liked all the secondary characters also and can’t wait to read their stories.

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.

Series: Royals Undercover by Nina Malone Includes- Cheeky Royal 📖Review📖 & Cheeky King (Pre-Order)

Title: Cheeky Royal
Series: Royals Undercover #1
Author: Nana Malone
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 2, 2018
 Blurb

 

 All they want is everything they can’t have.
Penny…
Yes, yes, I’ve heard the rumors. The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that. The problem is, he’s also my job. When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away. Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.
Sebastian…
I never wanted the throne. When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don’t have to rule the kingdom like my father expects. Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed. Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

 

~My Review for Cheeky Royal~
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this story. Nana Malone is becoming one of my go-to authors!

This story is a refreshing story of the royal meets commoner and finds love. Sebastian is a prince with reasons of not wanting to be the prince anymore. SO when he is told that his father has two other children out there he takes it upon himself to go find them. He is hoping that maybe one of them will want to take the spot of King or Queen when the time is right.

Len is a Royal Guard. It isn’t her dream job, but something that comes with being in her family. So when the King asks for her to follow his son and befriend him to stay close, she is pretty sure she is not the right person for the job. But after having her heart broken she decides to take the job.

These two (Sebastian and Len) do have a history, but Sebastian doesn’t seem to recognize her. But it has been years. Len and Sebastian do have some wonderful chemistry in this story and it is a great story. There is some mystery surrounding Sebastian and the ending is just WOW. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Triple Daddies by Madison Faye 📖Review📖

d50e639c-cc19-4779-90d7-d568249ee938

Title: Triple Daddies
Author: Madison Faye

Genre: Contemporary MFMM Romance

 Release Date: April 2, 2018
Blurb
Some brats like to break the rules,
Boys, fast cars, and skipping school.
But for dirty girls who flirt and tease,
Sometimes big daddies come in threes
 
She’s the forbidden fruit. The apple of temptation. The girl I never saw coming.
Too innocent. Too so-much-younger. Too much my student. Too much our student, actually.
Fate threw her in front of me. The feel of her lips on mine had me taking what In ever should have touched.
…My inability to walk away from trouble had me saving her when I should have let it be.
But now she’s here in my house – me, her college professor. And it’s not just meeither, there are three of us living here. Three big, rough, hardened older men – men twice her age.
…Men who can’t f*cking look away from the tempting little tease sleeping right down the hall.
But saving her or not, there are rules that she’ll follow under this roof. And when Cora Hartley decides she doesn’t need to follow them, she’s going to learn just how wrong she is.
 
Three men like us can only be teased and tested for so long, before she gets a firm hand of discipline.
 …Or three.
 Hang onto your tushies, we’re about to wild.
Don’t show your friends this book, they’ll probably judge you. Luckily, I won’t, and my lips are sealed ;).
 
Alpha af, wildly over-the-top, silly, steamy, and sweetenough to make your teeth hurt. This mfmm romance is all about her –no m/m. Safe, no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.
 Please note: this is a VERY loose sequel to Double Daddies, involving side characters from that book. You absolutely DO NO have to have read that book to fully enjoy this one though!
