He was a drug I couldn’t kick. I’d overdosed on him before. It didn’t turn out well.
I was stupid enough to let him crack my heart, in hopes we would fall off the same cliff together. 
No matter how much my idiotic heart wanted to love him, my head knew better. 
He didn’t choose me. 
He chose her. 
That’s where the problem started. 
Maybe that’s how it should end.

Robyn’s Review of Distorted Love by T.L. Smith

by T.L. Smith
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Title: Distorted Love
Duet: Dark Intentions #1
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: March 20, 2018
I loved him from the age of sixteen.

Hated him from the age of eighteen.

He disappeared at the age of nineteen.

We started off as enemies, then fast became lovers.

But our story isn’t a happily ever after.

It was a story of a king and a peasant. Can you guess which I was?

I knew we weren’t meant to be.

You see, he fell in love with her first. He loved me last.

I’m not someone’s second choice.

Not even for the boy who stole my heart.

I’m someone’s first.

Now, I just have to remember that.

The thing with TL Smith is that just when you think she can’t create a new insanely incredible story…she does! More brilliance from this amazingly talented author.

Saskia, the poor cousin of Livia, finds Ryken irresistible but so does Livia. Ryken is drawn to Saskia like a magnet but dates Livia. Confused? It is a confusing time for these teenagers but they are all strong-willed and determined to move forward.

You know I just wanted to really hate Ryken but I can’t! He really is a bad boy, however, a loveable one though. Saskia’s inner strength grows and pushes out to help her cope with life and the curveballs that are thrown at her. Livia although is not an easy character to like, she doesn’t exactly have it rosy all of the time but still…no I just plain don’t like her!

I think this author adds more twists and turns in the story than a corkscrew! BUT it works and works exceptionally well.

Great detailed descriptions once again give readers not only vivid imagery but also insight into the characters and what makes them tick. Having both lead characters take turns explains things from their points of view helps too. This is an incredibly fast paced book and although it is darker than your average tale, it’s super easy to read. I am so looking forward to the next book..yep it’s a cliffhanger but you know that from the start.

His lips told me he knew me. 


His hands touched like old lovers. 

His eyes held secrets of a past I’d never known.

I was lost you see. 

Lost as the flowers that grew in the meadow. 

The devil told me he knew me. 

But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn’t want them to. 

The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burnt at every touch, every linger, and I let it burn all the way to my core. 

A devil made you sin. And my devil was the worst. 

But now that devil wanted my last kiss, and it wasn’t one I was willing to give. 

He could take the acid and leave the burn behind.

I was keeping my heart, even if I died trying.

“Mouse…”
I take his moment of silence, and slip myself out from his grasp while putting much-needed distance between us.
“You’ll end up hating me, I’ll end up resenting you…” I shake my head and step back again.
“I wouldn’t.”
“You would! You had to be forced into it. It took me almost dying more than once for you to choose me. That isn’t healthy, none of this is. We aren’t good for each other. We’ll keep on burning until there’s nothing left.” Stepping back again, I’m not clear where my car is, but I know it’s not far from here.
“We need to stop, Mouse. I’m ceasing the ellipses. No more pauses or question marks for me. Now it will just be full stops.”
I want to smile at his editor’s metaphor.
I want to ravish in it.
I know better, though.
“I’m full stopping it, Wolf! Before I fall deeper down a rabbit hole where I cannot escape.”
“I’ll chase you, Mouse, right down that rabbit hole.”
Turning, so I’m walking away, I look back only once.
“I hope you catch me, I really do. But this time you may not.”

He wasn’t meant to be on my radar, he was definitely the off limits guy.
My brother’s best friend, my friend’s ex, but most of all he was my boss.

I was about to dive in head first.

Boom!!! This is what is happens when you get two great writers collaborating and stepping away from their norm. This book had me hooked from the first words and I didn’t put it down until I had devoured every single word.

As I said Cocky Fiancė is a different kind of book, there is no death and destruction and people don’t actually die, although some deserved to and I was expecting just that to happen. But alas it remained without it and I can honestly say it was brilliant.

Britta was a strong character, full of wit, sass and has 4 brothers that stand strong behind her. And the one person that she falls for is just what she needs but is warned against. Hawk her brothers best friend and her boss to boot. Hawk is sexy, strong and powerful in the boardroom and bedroom. He is a no-nonsense, tell it like it is hottie that will leave you with your tongue hanging out from his dirty talking quips.

This story is really good and the writing is great. You can see that these girls work well together. This book is a huge recommendation from me. It takes you one hell of an emotional journey that leaves you wanting more and more. I shed a few tears but I laughed heaps. A book sure to leave you feeling great by the end.

Reviewed by Donna

I love everything both of these Authors write so you can imagine my excitement when I heard they were collaborating! And hell they did not disappoint!!!

I totally devoured this book in one sitting, with its flawless creation and amazing characters I want more. Bring on the brothers stories.

I was about to dive in head first.

As far as weeks went, this one was long and arduous. With Britta gone, the entire atmosphere was different. Dull and boring. But today she returned. Her voice filtered down the hall, warm and cheery as she greeted her colleagues. Moments later, she walked into my office, her smile bright, skin freshly bronzed. Although she was smiling, her beautiful almond eyes meant business. Closing the door, she sat opposite me and crossed her legs.

I raised my brows in amusement when she remained silent and expectant. “Good morning, Britta,” I began. “How was your leave?”

“Morning, Hawk,” she smiled, and I was reminded for the millionth time how much I missed it. “It was… refreshing and…” Her eyes gave me a subtle once over. Not subtle enough that I don’t notice. “New suit?”

“Yes.”

Her lips pursed together before she responded. “It looks great on you.”

I smiled knowing her palms would be sweaty and her heart would be pounding. That was Britta.

“I’m happy you approve.”

She wiped her palms on her skirt and looked around the room. “Is the AC not working? I’m heating up here.”

I smiled to myself at how predictable she was. Using the controller, I lowered the temperature for her.

“So, what’s on your mind?”

“Game plan,” she said instantly.

“Game plan?”

She nodded. “Tomorrow… we need a game plan.”

I tapped my pen on my desk and watched her, curious. She watched me unfazed, waiting patiently for me to respond.

“Hawk, I need you to be serious right now.”

“I’m deadly serious.”

“Then why are you looking at me like that?”

“Like what?”

“Like you’re looking into my soul.”

I didn’t know about her soul, but I would’ve liked a look under the blouse she was wearing.

“I assure you,” I said, dropping my pen on the desk and leaning forward. “I’m being serious. What do you have in mind?”

“I may be over Roman, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want revenge.”

I cocked a brow. “Revenge?”

She nodded, a smile slowly playing on her lips.

“Britta Valentino, what do you have in that mind of yours?”

“I want him to remember what he lost. I want to drive him crazy.”

This time, I nodded slowly, understanding the angle she was coming from.

She paused and waited on the edge of her seat for my response.

“Did Roman ever make you scream, Britta?”

She frowns. “Scream? Yeah, we only fought toward the end, though.”

I bite the corner of my mouth to stop the smile from taking over. “That’s not the type of screaming I mean.”

This time as realization dawned, her eyes grew wide. “That’s… that’s a bizarre question to—”

“I’ll take that as a no then,” I interrupted.

“I didn’t say that.”

“It’s written all over your face. A shame. I bet you’re a great screamer.”

Our Reviews of Lotus by T.L. Smith

by T.L. Smith
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Title: Lotus
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Published: July 25, 2017
To break a heart is easy. 

All you have to do is reach in, wrap your blood covered hands around it, and pull. 

This happened to me. 

Two hands, both red as my hair, did this exact thing. 

Tore it away like it wasn’t made for me. 

Maybe it was his to take?

Because years on, with those same blood red hands, he still has it. 

In his hands. 

And he won’t give it back. 

But the real question is, do I want it back. 

He is dangerous, uncontrollable, and downright sexy. 

I fell for it all, but in the end, he didn’t catch me he let me fall.

TL Smith is a magician with words, she casts a spell and once you are under it you are escorted on a new adventure where anything could happen.

Lotus and Orion meet when they are teenagers and their chemistry is combustible. Bad boy meets good girl and second chances are the tropes but it is so much more.

Time moves from the past to the present and vice versa to give us an idea of the lead characters relationship and personal characteristics. Likewise the story is told in both Orion and Lotus’ points of view which helps us to understand each character in a deeper way. They are both simple people but deep at the same time!

The secondary characters are fabulous too and really help to make the story. That old emotional roller coaster ride is on the fast speed so as you are concerned about one thing very soon you are chuckling or sitting up straight with fear! You can’t help but like all of the characters, even Kama and Roan a bit.

I can not impress how entertaining and enjoyable all of this author’s books are but if you are new to her then here is a great place to start.

Reviewed by Robyn

Again another must read from the fabulous dark and deceptive author T.L. Smith. I just can’t get enough of her writing and this book is no different.

Bravo!!!

Reviewed by Cherie

Dark, deep and totally mesmerising… TL has done it again with a book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go! Its full of gritty, unrelenting action and a love so powerful that has the two main characters drowning in each other all the while destroying who they are… So different than all her other books I’ve read but there is just something about this one that pulls you in and puts you under a spell.. I was totally invested from the first words until the last.

Reviewed by Nat

Omg, this book has to be one of the best books that I have read by this author and to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement. I have been back and forth with this review and I didn’t really know what I was going to write. Again we are taken on a very twisted yet beautiful story that is well written and leaves you wondering what the hell you just read. Which is the complete norm with TL Smith.

The Characters are great and their chemistry is completely evident from the first words. I although found that a little was missing from the back story but that’s just a personal opinion for me. Orion and Lotus are definitely one of the most passionate couples. I have ever read and you just knew that when she saw him again. That she would never be fulfilled in the life that she has created without him.

This story is one of heartache, lost love, wanting to fit in to what you believe you aren’t  good enough for and that’s what I loved most about it. If you are expecting a hearts and flowers love story, well I guess you have never read a book by the queen of twisted love before.

I can honestly say this book is a huge recommend for me and I again often wonder how such a story develops in the head of a normal person. But again it has and it will definitely not disappoint. A great story, that will take you in hell of a journey.

Synopsis
She was everything, yet she was nothing.
She was there, then she wasn’t.
I didn’t expect her, never wanted her.
But there she was, everywhere yet nowhere.
She drew me in with her looks. Locked me with her first words, then stole me with her lust.
She was everything I didn’t know I was searching for, yet nothing I needed.
She was a conundrum, difficult and confusing.
One who was impossible of staying away from.
SR Teaser SR Teaser 2
This was a great conclusion to this great duet. As in typical TL Smith style it completely messes with your mind. Although the story was a little how I expected it to be but with a few twist thrown in. This book was a little heartbreaking with the situation Malinka finds herself in and it just doesn’t bare thinking about.

Connick is just everything you need him to be in this book and he is everything to Malinka too.  The other characters in this book make it for me. They pull this book along nicely and make the story just flow. The story ends a little abruptly for my liking but it doesn’t detract from the story at all. Everyone gets what they deserve in the end.

This duet is a great recommend from me and as usually with her writing. TL Smith doesn’t leave you disappointed.
