SYNOPSIS

A shadow meets the light …

When someone needs to disappear, the Chicago mob calls on Joe Rossi. A man who can move without a sound, and kill without a word, they don’t call him the Shadow for nothing.

This time, it’s a New York crime family in need of his skills, but it takes one glimpse of her to make him agree to the job.

Liliana Marcello is every inch a principessa della mafia. Her life has taught her to be wary of strangers, yet her ballet career contradicts everything by putting her on display.

It’s a man with a dark smile and a constantly changing demeanor that makes her feel safe again, but it’s the unknown that holds her back.

It takes one look …

One dance …

One word …

One smile to captivate a man.

And one second to kill a woman because of it, too.

Not all monsters hide in the shadows.

How are you supposed to see them coming?

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jesus, I loved this book. Captivated brings you a story about two mafia families the Chicago and New York families. Joe Rossi is brought into New York to work for the Marcello Family on a job. He is to get it done quickly and quietly. He is known as the Shadow for a reason. But when he meets Liliana Marcello things go a little haywire.

Liliana is a dancer also the princess of the Marcello family. She is aware of her family but her father lets her live her life. When Joe is brought in for whatever reason all she knows is that she wants him. And it has been a long time since she has had feelings for someone. But when a man shows up and flowers start showing up she knows she needs help. Will Joe be able to help? Or will he make things worse?

This book may be about the mafia, but it goes so much deeper than that. This book is beautifully written and talks about some deep emotional things. I could honestly not put this story down. I am hoping we get more about these families.

A Chicago Syndicate Standalone Novel
Author: Soraya Naomi
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance

Blurb

Brielle

He consumed my mind. I never even crossed his.

From the moment I met Michael, mysteriously brooding and dressed like a dark angel, there was something electric between us. Or so I thought.

What I believed was a seductive and undeniably raw attraction has ended up being something else entirely, something I never foresaw.

Because he’s a skilled liar and a master manipulator, and I downright misread his intentions.

And now I’m afraid that falling for the man in black might become my biggest regret.

 

Michael

An overwhelming remorse haunts me after losing my fiancée, but I’m not a man who can afford to lower my guard.

I’m a ruthless criminal, one of the top members of the merciless mafia, the Chicago Syndicate, and I moved back home to keep to myself and do a job.

But when a curvaceous pastry chef with a beautiful smile and a possible link to my former life catches me in a reckless moment, I’m forced to watch her and strategize a plan.

Because I’m not sure if she’s out to get me or if she’s just an innocent
civilian who doesn’t know that the restaurant she works at is actually a front to launder Syndicate money.

And I intend to find out if she’s playing me while I’m playing her. But then the demons that haunt me force me to make a huge mistake…

Deceit has a price—I just have to make sure I don’t pay with her life.

A standalone novel from the Chicago Syndicate world.

She never knew nightmares.

Until she became mine.

She was a ballerina.

He was a serial killer.

She ran away from him.

He caught her.

She begged for mercy.

He gave her none.

She was an angel.

He was a monster.

She wanted to escape.

He wanted to destroy her.

They were at war.

And only one of them would win.

About the Author:

V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

being charming.
They’ll say this is filthy.
They’ll say this is wrong.
I say she’s mine, and nothing’s going to stop me from claiming my Queen.

One look into those deep green eyes, and I know I’m lost. Addicted. Obsessed. One taste of those sweet lips, and one touch of my rough hands on her tempting curves, and I know I’ll tear my whole kingdom down to make her mine.
The world will try and stop this, and say this is wrong. They’ll say she’s no princess, but then, I’m no f*cking gentleman.
Her wicked stepmother wants to tear us apart, but she and the rest of the world are about to find out how foolish it is to get between me and what’s mine.
This is no fairytale, but the lady Emilia is about to find a very happy ending. And I’ll be giving her every inch of my crown jewels. She’ll be my all. My everything. My Queen.

Series: Trust Fund Duet by Skye Warren 📕Review📕

 

Title: Survival of the Richest
Series: Trust Fund Duet #1
Author: Skye Warren
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 12, 2018

 

Blurb

 

An heiress without a cause.

Two billionaires determined to claim her.

And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.“What an incredible book! Survival of the Richest has everything —
Skye Warren’s beautiful writing, a sexy, compelling story; intricate
characters, and a provocative love triangle that will captivate you until the
very end.”
 ~ New York Times bestselling author Nina Lane

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan’s harbor.

A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was
supposed to be my enemy. Instead he protects me with fierce determination.

That should have been my happily ever after, but then Sutton appeared–ruthless
and seductive. He doesn’t care that my heart belongs to someone else, because
he’s determined to win. No matter the cost.

It’s an impossible choice, but I can’t have them both.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love Skye Warren. This book well, it is just not what I expected at all. It blew me away. I will say that I had some misguided feelings throughout this book. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Harper in some of this book but I understood her feelings and her actions. The ending threw me away. #TeamIhavenoideayet #TeamHarperforsure

Harper is a strong, independent woman that loves her parents. Too bad they are totally crazy. So she doesn’t believe in love or money. Even though her father is a billionaire, he doesn’t treat her like that. She is to earn everything.

So when her father remarries (which he and her mother do a lot) and she earns a new stepbrother they quickly become friends. Christopher is everything she knows her father would want in a child.

Years later when they get together for Harpers art show, a tragedy happens that will change their relationship forever.

Excerpt
My body heats at the words, at the remembered pleasure of Sutton’s mouth on my sex. Christopher looks down at me, as if he can feel the heat emanating from between my legs. His expression turns stark, as if he’s in pain. That’s only fair,
because I’m in pain too.
“You deserve better than that,” Christopher says, but there’s no way to pretend he’s
talking about Sutton. He’s talking about himself and we both know it.
“He gives me what I want, which is something you might try next time you like a girl.”
“It wasn’t that,” he says, harsh again.
“No?” I step forward and place a hand on his chest, feeling the way his heart beats strong and fast. He may want to be unaffected by me, but he isn’t. I tilt my face up toward him. “You didn’t imagine me naked in the cabin later?”
He sucks in a breath. “You were too young then.”
My words come out as a whisper. “What about now? Will you do what Sutton said—imagine me in this dress when you go home after this?”
“It’s not fucking decent,” he says, even though the silk covers every part of me. It’s a perfectly respectable dress, when it’s not hitched up around my waist.
“You can thank Sutton for this,” I say, because it’s true. He’s the only reason I lean forward and place my lips against Christopher’s, touching them in some terrible attempt to show him what he gave up, to prove to myself that I don’t care about either of them.
Christopher sucks in a breath. For a second I think he’s going to pull away. He stiffens and grasps my hair with his fist. Easy enough for him to stop the kiss. Instead
he dips my head back and deepens it, exploring my mouth with his teeth, his tongue. Opening me wider until I whimper. Pulling me close until I can feel how hard he is beneath his slacks.
His other hand fists in the gauze of my dress, and I realize he’s holding me with both hands clenched—one in my hair and one in my clothes. I don’t know whether he’s doing it so he doesn’t have to touch me or because it’s a way to control me without bruising me. He uses both hands to tug me closer; I’m pressed so tightly I can’t imagine getting away.
Where Sutton had been raw sensuality and playfulness, Christopher is pure determination. He kisses me like he’s a conquering army, like I’m made of gold he has to grasp—or lose forever.

Series: Queen of the Seven Stars by Kallista Dane 📕Reviewed📕

Fire Born: Queen of the Seven Stars Book 1

A brand new series from Kallista Dane.

A Reverse Harem romance set in a faraway fantasy world.

Available Now!

Buy Link – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DW8W6TC/

 REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So Fire Born is a really interesting start of a new series by Kallista Dane. It is was a slow go for me.

Melisandre is the newest queen over the land is now has to take over the curse that is now been activated since her father has passed. The first step is to find out what the curse is and who will help her.

There are five men that will help her get through this. But not only will they help her but she is to help them get through certain tasks also.

This story is strictly between Melisandre and the dragon Drayke, the others are mentioned and Melisandre is told what they will bring to the fight but we do not meet them yet.

I am excited to see where this series goes and how Kallista brings everyone together.

The last figure disappeared, gradually drifting away into formless mist. But the Dragon Lord, the Fire Born, took on substance. Came down the steps of the dais in his human form, naked once again. I ran my eyes over him, stopping at his cock, thick and hard and heavy.

I glanced at the oracle, but she was no longer visible. The smoke from the braziers hid her from our view – and us from her.

He came closer. Smiled wickedly.

I couldn’t help myself. I reached out, stroked the silky-smooth flesh of his manhood. Oh, Goddess! My handmaidens were right. It did have a steel core.

Wordlessly, he put out his hand and touched my gown. It disappeared. Faded away, as though it was as unsubstantial as the mist around us.

I stood before him. Naked.

Though I’d never been unclothed in front of a man before, I felt no shame. No embarrassment. He ran his hand up my arm, caressed my breast. My nipple puckered, hardening into a dark red peak. He ran a thumb over it, then cupped my breast in his palm and brought his fingers together, squeezing and rolling my nipple between them.

I gasped as a jolt of raw lust shot straight to my core. The tiny bud between my legs began throbbing and I felt a gush between my thighs. He brought his other hand to the back of my head and drew me in. Ran his lips down my throat, stopping at the hollow of my neck to nip at it gently. I shivered and he pulled me closer. Wrapped his arms around me, skin to skin, our bodies pressed together. His erection rubbed against my mound, hot and demanding. Awakening a strange, fierce hunger deep in my core.

I ran my hand down his back. Felt the smooth skin, the layers of hard muscle underneath. He felt so real, so warm and alive. How could this be?

He drew me to the floor, laid me on a pile of soft cushions that had somehow appeared, blurring once again the line between reality and illusion. When he laid down beside me, I reached for him again. I caressed his cheek, ran a finger over his full lips.

Up close, he was even more beautiful, with dark hair in soft waves almost to his shoulders. A stray lock fell across his forehead. I brushed it aside and stared into his eyes. Warm brown eyes, looking back at me steadily.

I caressed his cheek, my fingers brushing against the faint dark stubble along his jawline. Masculine bodies had such striking contrasts. Soft hair, smooth skin, then rough stubble – hinting at the steel that lay below.

I moved my hand lower, exploring. Traced a path down his chest until I reached the head of his cock. So hot, like the flames that consumed him and gave birth to his dragon form. I ran my fingers up and down the thick shaft, watching his face the whole time. He drew in a breath and I saw sparks of fire flicker in his eyes.

Still without speaking, the nameless Dragon Lord parted my thighs with his knees and slid over me. I put my arms around his back and closed my eyes, desperate to have that hot hard cock slide into me. Take my virginity, and set me free to revel in this wild wicked passion he’d awakened in me.

I felt the warmth of him, the weight of him, the smooth hard head of his cock pressing against my slick core…

Five Alpha males

One headstrong queen

An enemy old as the Universe…

I learned my fate on my eighteenth birthday, the day my father died and I became the virgin Queen.

The day my life changed forever.

The Lord of Darkness has risen. He means to conquer my kingdom and take me as his bride. But to succeed, he needs the power of the five Sacred Sources.

I must find the Fire Born. The one who shifts into a fearsome dragon. He’s come to me in dreams in his human form, stirring shameful, dark desires inside me. The prophecy says he will take me as his mate – and join with me to battle the Lord of Darkness, who has awakened from the spell cast on him a thousand years ago.

Then I must seek out the others. Five in all, each with his own special skill.

The Warrior. The Wizard. The Mystic. And last, the Rogue.

I must secure their protection, their allegiance, using whatever means necessary, whether it be to offer them riches or a title… or my body. A place in my bed as well as on the throne.

The Oracle says only by uniting with these five powerful men will I accomplish my mission. Avenge my father’s death – and save the World of the Seven Stars from an enemy as old as the Universe.

But she never warned me I’d fall in love.

Fire Born is the first book in the World of the Seven Stars, a hot, steamy fantasy series featuring five dominant heroes and one strong-willed heroine. It’s full of magic and mystery, shifters and sorcerers, action and adventure – but above all, it’s a love story.
