Torture to her Soul by JM Darhower

"I'm warning you. I'm not a good man, Karissa, and I never will be. So don't think you can fix me, or that I'll ever change, because I won't. I can't. You have to know, if this goes any further, if you ask me to stay, I'm not going to be able to let you walk away."

Remember those lines from Monster in his Eyes? Well, they still hold true thru Torture to her Soul. Ignazio Vitale is NOT a good man. In his POV, we get to see what makes him do what he does and how he justifies his thinking. Naz is not looking for redemption for how became what he is. He's still seeking his revenge and ultimately he gets it but...

The title of the book is aptly named for Karissa. Naz is her torture. No matter what he says, what he does; she still loves him. What I really like with this series is that Karissa doesn't "heal" Naz. It's not like Naz wakes up one day and thinks, "Oh, I got the love of my life with me, I think I'll try to be a better man for her." Darhower kept it real. She kept Naz true to his character which is he's not a good man.

The pace of the story is slow. Karissa and Naz took their time getting back together even when they were together. There's really no action until closer to the end of the story. I can see where some may not like Naz or Karissa's actions or way of thinking. I happen to love everything about this story. From the prologue to the epilogue to the bonus scene, everything worked.

Full Disclosure by Kindle Alexander

Holy. Moly. Of. All. Hottness.

Full Disclosure is the first book that I have read by Kindle Alexander and oh let me tell ya here and now that it's not going to be the last. Kindle has a way to pull you into a story and keep you there until the very end. I've read just a few m/m books and (IMHO) it takes a certain skill. A special, magical and talented author to pull off a fantastic m/m read, just like Kindle Alexander.

Mitch and Cody are just absolutely fab together. I love how they have very different personalities and that they just seem to fit each other so fucking well.

If you are ever in the mood to pick up something that has suspense, mystery, hot & sexy men in law enforcement uniforms falling in love and doing HOT *fans myslef* things to each other.....this book is for you.

You will not regret it.

Deacon by Kristen Ashley


I don't know how an author can put out x amount of stories a year and make them not less worthy of the previous ones. Some may argue that a writer should take their time with their work and not rush it out to satisfy their fans. I'm here to say that KA has a knack for what she does. She makes her stories believable, enjoyable, laughable, swoonworthyable(it's my word) and Deacon doesn't disappoint.

With KA's men, they each have that something something that sets them apart. With Deacon *whispers* it's the bedroom play. When I got to a certain part, I thought to myself, is KA going there? And then, BOOM, she did. I will say this, that if a man lets you do what Deacon lets get done to him...you keep his ass. End of.

The woman in Deacon's life is Cassidy. She is her own person and with the way she is, Deacon's attraction is unavoidable no matter how many times he drove away. Their story is sweet. Their story is sexual. Their story is putting the past to rest. Their story took time and in the end it was worth the journey.

~Cover Reveal~ Torture to Her Soul by J.M. Darhower

Torture to Her Soul
(Monster in His Eyes #2)
J.M. Darhower

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: 9.29.14


Don't say it unless you mean it…

It's a simple concept, one I've said time and again, but something people don't seem to comprehend. You should choose every syllable carefully, because you never know when somebody will hold you to your word.

Somebody like me.

I'm not a good man. I'm not. I know. I have enough darkness inside of me to rid the world of every stitch of light. But there's one I could never harm, one light I couldn't bring myself to snuff out.


She thinks I'm a monster, and maybe I am. I taunt her with my touch, get a thrill out of torturing her soul. But I'm not the only one. The world is full of monsters, and I'm not the most dangerous one out there.

Not even close…

God help me, I love her.

I do.

And God help anyone who tries to take her from me.


"Guess it's true what they say."
            The sound of Karissa's voice draws my attention. Turning around, I see her standing at the bottom of the steps, eyes trained past me at the front door. Early morning sunshine bathes the area around it in a soft orange glow, making the brand new locks lining the door shine brightly. I spent all night fortifying the house, doing everything in my power to make the place secure.
            "And what, exactly, do they say?"
            Karissa's eyes shift from the door to meet mine. Her hair is a mess, her pajamas disheveled. She clearly just woke up from sleeping hard, lost in tranquility, while I spent the past few hours drowning in paranoia. Every time the house creaked, I damn near clawed my way out of my own skin.
            "History repeats itself," she says, "first as a tragedy, second as a farce."
            Karl Marx. I recognize the quote.
            Daniel Santino must've taught it to her.
            I wave toward the front door. "Something about this is funny to you?"
            "Not really funny," she says, slowly stepping closer. "It's sort of curious, though, that I spent my entire life trapped behind locked doors and here it is, happening to me again. I always knew something was going on when my mother started buying extra locks and nailing down windows. It's just a bit of déjà vu seeing you doing the same thing."
            Hesitating, I reach into my pocket and fish out a set of keys. I toss them to her without warning, and they hit the wooden floor by her feet with a clang. Bending down, she picks them up, eyeing me curiously.
            "You're not trapped here, Karissa."
            Her fist closes around the keys, her gaze burning through me as she arches an eyebrow, silent for a moment before asking, "Aren't I?"
            "No, you're not," I say. "You can leave the house whenever you want."
            "Can I?"
            "Of course," I say. "Doesn't mean I won't follow you, though."

~Review & Giveaway~ Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh

by Nalini Singh

Fox hadn’t become the lead singer of one of the best-selling rock bands in history by being a shrinking violet. No, he went after what he wanted, no holds barred. And the raw promise he could feel between him and Molly? He had to know where it would lead, the need so strong he hadn’t felt anything like it since the day he’d figured out that music was his escape, the air in his lungs.

Which was why he was leaning against the wall beside Molly’s apartment at five that afternoon, a guitar by his side.

The elevator doors opened at a quarter after the hour, Molly going motionless two steps outside of it, the doors closing silently at her back. Yeah, she hadn’t expected him, but Fox was ready to work with that. Waiting patiently as she took a deep breath and completed the trek down the corridor, he drew in the scent of her, his gaze lingering on the fluttering pulse in her neck.

 “How did you get past security?”

Fox smiled slowly at the blurted-out question, wondering if Molly knew how bad she was at hiding her emotions. He liked it, liked that he saw the real Molly, not an illusion she’d created to tempt him—not that she had to do anything but smile to tempt him. “I told you the security sucks.”

Unable to resist, he reached out to run his finger down one creamy cheek flushed with a mix of surprise, passion, and, he was certain, sweet, hot feminine anger. His guess was borne out when Molly unlocked her door with jittery hands and put down her handbag on one corner of the bench, her fingers trembling before she curled them into her palms. “You’re breaking the rules.”

“What rules?” Closing the door, he leaned back on it and willed her to face him. Much as he loved the shape of her from the back, he liked watching those expressive eyes whisper her mood to him.

Shoulders tight, she turned. “This was supposed to be a one-night stand.”

“Ah.” Folding his arms over the plain black of his T-shirt, he said, “How about a one-month stand instead?” He knew he had to play this exactly right. Molly was wary of him, and yeah, he could understand why. To have her in his life beyond a fleeting instant, he’d have to win her trust.

She jerked up her head. “What?”

“Why not? I like you. You like me.” He smiled—because the reason Molly had needed to jerk up her head was that she’d been staring at his chest. “Admit it.”

Sitting down on the bench, she began to unzip her boots, very obviously not looking at him. “You’re okay for a rock star.”

He wanted to bite her, then pet her until she was limp and languid in his arms. “We burn up together.” Deliberately modulating his voice—his instrument—for maximum effect, low and bedroom rough, he saw her fingers stutter on the zipper. “I’m here for a month. It’s an easy equation.”

When the words “Let me think about it” fell from her mouth, he thought she might’ve been as startled as he was, her lips parting on a slight gasp—as if to call back the declaration.

Nalini is known for her outstanding and sensual PNR series Psy/Changeling and Guild Hunter. If you've not read these, I HIGHLY recommend that you do. With this being said her take on contemporary romance is a good start to a promising series. You have a rock-n-roll man whore Zach who is instantly besotted with an insecure timid girl Molly. They both have a troubled past and it's shaped them into what they are. With help with each other, they overcome and slay their demons. 

There is insta-love and there is insta-lust. There are sweet moments and some angst.

What I really love about Nalini's writing, is her sensuality in her stories. And there's a whole bunch of it in this story. As we read about Zach and Molly, we also get to know about the people in their lives and Nalini does a good job in setting up the future stories on them. While this story is not my favorite of Nalini's, it won't deter me from reading more of this series.



            What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

The Sheik's Dangerous Lover by Elizabeth Lennox

This book is a freebie on Amazon. 

The book cover plus the title caught my eye so I decided to give it a shot.

I shouldn't have. Even though the story was semi sweet, there was no danger in it. I was expecting some due to the title and blurb but it was all lies. *throws tantrum* There was nothing to make me go, "Oh no! Watch out!" or "Oh dayum. Things are about to get serious!" I would have taken even one small page or paragraph of some semi danger. 

There wasn't a spot in the story in which the characters fell in love with each other (in my eyes) even though they both proclaim it at the end. Yes, there is attraction between them but to fall in love  in what....2 days.....tops? Nah. That's lust.

While reading this very short read I kept thinking to myself, "What made Shanelle such  a dangerous lover?" 

This wasn't my cup of tea but hey it could be yours.
