The Bourbon Kings by J. R. Ward

While reading The Bourbon Kings, I pictured the book as a season one of a dysfunctional family drama filled with lies, deceit, death, love, hope and redemption. There are many pov's through out the story that could be a little distracting but it gives us a feel on how the characters are portrayed and what they could bring with the following stories in this series. The Bourbon Kings are about the Bradford family which includes three sons, one daughter, father and mother who have their own demons they are battling. The heart of the family is not who you would think would hold the family together. It's endearing to see this. How the family interacts with each other is discerning cause you get to see the root of the problem that starts it all. I wouldn't call this story a HEA, more like a HFN; at least for one couple. Curious to see what will happen in season two.

REVIVED by Samantha Towle Blog Tour

We met the sexy Brazilian Formula One driver, Leandro Silva briefly in Revved. We knew he was in a horrible race car accident but we didn't get to see was how that affected him. He's unable to compete in future races due to his fear of driving, which is totally understandable so it's brought to his attention for him to see a therapist Dr. India Harris. There's instant attraction for both but while Leandro would like to start a relationship with India, India is unable to reciprocate(publicly, emotionally, etc.) due to doctor/patient clause. After a brief tryst and after a shot down from India, Leandro leaves even as both are heartbroken. Several months later, they reunite and pick up where they left off. The sexual attraction is a given between them and their sexy time is deliciously hot. While their relationship moves forward there are some obstacles that try to hinder them but as both of them are completely honest with each other; they push pass this. Family also plays a key role in Revived. We meet Kit, India's twin brother and Jett, India's son. As the story comes to an end, there is one couple that got together that I would love to read on how they got to where they are. Hopefully a novella will come soon and I see where a potential story may come out of Revived.

Review of Gold by K. A. Linde

And so Gold concludes the story of Bryna and her antics on finding what she thought was missing all along....LOVE. Who she finds it with was the best choice she could make. The person that was there for her, the person who put up with her silliness, the person who saw past the person she tried to portray. Bryna's calculating ways is immature and that put me off of her character but then I realized she is only eighteen so I give some leeway for that and hopefully with her choice in love, it can mature her along the way.

Other characters from Diamonds make appearances. Some that are good for Bryna and some that you just want to junk punch them. I'm a fan of Linde's work. She knows how to give us the angst and, at least for me, she knows how to write characters that I dislike. Ha! We kinda get a feel on what Platinum(book 3) will start off, so be prepared for that ride.

Cover Reveal ~ The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit.
They lie.
For 21 days she held on.
But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death.
Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.

A haunting tale of passion, loss, and redemption, The Paper Swan is a darkly intense yet heartwarming love story, textured with grit, intrigue, and suspense. Please note: This is NOT a love triangle.

A full-length, standalone novel, intended for mature audiences due to violence, sex and language. Subject matter may be disturbing for some readers.
