Boom!!! This book was hard hitting from the prologue and didn’t stop until the last page was turned. And then I feel it could have carried on. I feel this story had everything and more. I was consumed by Smoke. Big, bold, tattooed and brazen. Smoke takes no prisoners when he works and what you get isn’t just work in this book. Its revenge of the highest order and he will stop at nothing to take it.

Smoke is a loner, has been his whole life, never speaks of himself, never gives anything away. But when he meets Frankie, well meets is a funny way of putting it, all of that seems to change. Frankie has balls and no fear, well she does but just doesn’t show it. She is tough, resilient and refuses to give up. She has a fight in her that you could compare to Rages but just not in the blow stuff up and slit a man’s throat way. She is bold brave and fights in her own unique way.

This book is a breath of fresh air in Tm Frazier catalogue. She has gone back to her old self and how I have missed the Tm Frazier of old, she is back to the no-nonsense balls to the wall style of writing that leaves you sated and surprised to hell. The cameos in this story just make this book that bit more special for me. Old scores are settled, circumstances are discussed and forgiven. This book for me has been a long time coming.

This book is a huge recommend for me. I wasn’t ready for just how much I would love this story. I was expecting disappointment, well disappointment didn’t come and I am so glad that I read this book…… Bring on the next one……  I need Nine in my life.

The leader of the group. He is uptight, formal, and cold. Rigid and set in his ways, always following the same path. Until the day, he stumbles upon her.


She brings with her spontaneity and light. The world she lives in is so different from his, yet he cannot control the draw to her. Nor can he explain the way she makes him feel.






Book one in the Vested Interest series and it’s a hit!! The story of uptight business owner Bentley who literally trips and falls for Emmy, a university student who is feisty and real and doesn’t mince words as she bulldozers her way into his life and his heart! A truly beautiful story that Melanie packs full of emotion and fun, with a lot of the hot and steamy romance that she is famous for giving her readers! I cannot wait to see what the rest of this fabulous series is going to bring!!

Our Reviews of The Devils Match by Amo Jones

Title: The Devil’s Match
Author: Amo Jones
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: February 5, 2018


A person suffering from chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social
behaviour.synonyms: madman/madwoman, mad person, deranged person, maniac, lunatic,
psychotic, sociopath

– informal

an unstable and aggressive person.

– informal/2



Since I was a little girl, I have been surrounded by hate, death, murder, and
slavery. I’ve been guarded my whole life by my brother—Raze, the kingpin of the
underworld and the most feared individual in the United States of America. And
then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC
was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection
to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it’s cage. The part
that I’ve tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she’s unleashed, everyone
would see just how much like my brothers I am.

Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was

My secret is mine and my brothers.

Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I
don’t, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown
to know.

But I broke.

And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building
to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.

I was so looking forward to finally read about Frost in this Devils Own MC series, the author has been teasing us with this complex character for a while and I am pleased to say the wait was worth it! From the first page you travel back to Raze, Miles, Millie, Beast, Hella, Meadow and the other characters who literally come alive on the page!

Ella and Frost, Frost and Ella…not an easy relationship but then they don’t do easy. Both very different but similar too in many ways!

Along the way there are some twists that make for even more interesting reading. Changing the dimensions and shaking things up is what this author excels at in her books.

Great descriptions of both characters and their inner thoughts as well as settings makes it easy to visualise this story. Even though they are mainly crazy, tough characters you can’t help but like them.

Bring on the next book please!

I have been waiting for this book for what seems like ages and could not wait to sink in and devour it which is exactly what I did.

Again the characters were complex and appealing and you can’t help but feel like you are right there in the story with them.

Twists and turns and craziness galore which is what you expect from this fantastic author. I hope there is more to come…

Title: On Her Guard
Series: Protecting Her #1
Author: Skyla Madi
Publisher: Crave Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Organized Crime
Release Date: December 5, 2017
I don’t know how my life got so twisted.
One day, I’m working as a cash guard, shooting the tires off a stolen
vehicle, and the next I’m a guard for the only daughter of high-profile mob
boss, Marco Ventilli.
The twist?
I’ve already met the five-foot-four, one-hundred-and-ten-pound
bombshell that is Sera Ventilli. 
In fact, I’ve had her every way a man can have a woman, and if her
father ever finds out, he’ll skin me alive and bury me six feet under the hot
sands of Las Vegas. 
knew Sera looked like the worst kind of trouble—my
gut told me she was—but she swore otherwise, and I lapped up every single lie
she fed me, like a Goddamn idiot.
All I had to do was keep the promise I made to my mother on her
deathbed. Leave the Army, find a normal job and a good woman, and get on with
my life.
Yeah. So much for that.

OMG how hot was this story! The chemistry between Sera and Ben was off the charts… Ben meets Sera and they spend one hot night together before Sera disappears into thin air! After a job goes wrong Ben finds himself entangled with the mob and his one job is to guard none other than mob princess Sera…and this is where the fun begins!! A fast paced, action packed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page… a great read one I would highly recommend to anyone who loves romance with a mafia twist!
Reviewed by Nat

This is an amazing hot as hell novella that has you hooked from the off. It’s a fast-paced story, full of action and a sexual chemistry that is off the chart. One that left me wanting more. Who doesn’t like a walk on the wild side and for both characters they sure are doing so.

Sera a mafia princess who loves to defy her daddy and Ben an ex-soldier whom can’t seem to find his place since he left the forces as a promise to his dying mum. Well, that could just be about to change. When their worlds collide for the second time things get intense and the true story begins.

I loved the characters and really want them to have their whole story told in full. But this novella is a must read for someone that loves a great romance with a touch of mafia on the side

Reviewed by Donna

Skyla Madi is such a fabulous storyteller! I love every bit of this book about Ben Campbell and Seraphina Ventilli.

Feisty young female meets experienced older male who has returned from active service after resigning from the military. Unbeknownst to him, Sera carries very heavy baggage that has some memorable results.

The passion between these two is so intense you can almost feel the heat as a physical thing. Their banter brings either a smile to your face or at other times a frown…they are in a very vulnerable situation.

Great descriptions of the characters and scenes help you to easily visualise the story as it unfolds. At times you feel such a part of everything because you can’t help but become absorbed by the storyline.

It’s a fast-paced story that is super easy to read and my only complaint is that it was a novella! I could easily have read more but the author does explain about the size at the beginning.
I enjoyed the full circle concept where the end is similar to the beginning, very cleverly executed.

I totally recommend this to everyone.

This was my first read from the amazing word magician Skyla Madi and definitely will not be my last. She made the character come to life and my girlie bits tingle for the hot bodyguard Ben (swoon)!!! I didn’t want this book to end that is the only bad words I have to say about it!

Don’t we all want to live on the wild side and play with fire! That’s what these two do and they make you want to join the fun. Do yourself a favour and buy this book.

Oh the humour in this is fantastic and had me chuckling out loud.

Dr Cameron Stanton and Dr Ashley Tucker are living the dream, together with their young son. Ashley is nearing the completion of her studies and Cam is a very successful cardiac surgeon. Cameron has his heart set on something else though.

The banter between the lead characters is fantastic, you almost feel like you are there with them. So much fun and more importantly so real! They work long hours and get tired and worn out just like everyone else.

The passion is off the charts and definitely shows how close the bond is between Cameron and Ashley. Her little digs about his not having a romantic bone in his body is not only funny but so much like conversations I’ve had personally!

Just when you think this series couldn’t get any does!

Reviewed by Robyn

And this series just keeps getting better and better. What a fantastic and perfect ending to this part of the story. I can only hope that this series doesn’t end here. This story is continuing the same vein as the rest of the books and you find yourself laughing hysterically.

This is a great novella that sees Cameron wanting to bite the bullet on forever with Ashely. This book is a huge recommendation from me but I really suggest that all previous books including the Stanton serious are read first. You won’t be disappointed the whole Stanton world is amazing.

Our Reviews of Defiant Queen by Meghan March

by Meghan March
Genres: Contemporary Romance




The Mount Trilogy continues with

Defiant Queen…

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .


Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira’s story concludes in Sinful Empire.


Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | iBooks | BN | Kobo




Wow! This second book in the series really packs a punch, just like the first book!

Keira is indebted to Lachlan Mount and although defies him, and shows him her own kind of rebellion, she finds things a little harder to digest with the changes he has made in her life. Mount himself struggles with the way things are going, to some degree, as well.

With baited breath I started reading this book and at once, again, became engrossed in everything Keira Kilgore and Lachlan Mount. The roller coaster of emotions takes you on quite a ride where you chuckle one minute and your heart rate speeds up with worry the next!

Plenty of action and drama as well as passion is woven into the story. A touch of romance enters and really shakes things up. It was educational to learn about running a whiskey distillery, a nice little touch to add to the overall solid storyline.

Another incredible cliffhanger to whet the reader’s thirst for the story continuation and once again completely unexpected, like all of the twists and turns in the story. Great stuff!

Bring on book 3…please!

The more I read about Lachlan Mount the more I fall for his bad boy charm! In this the second book we get to see some of what made the man who he is today, and you can kind of understand the detachment and walls he has up around himself… As the title alludes to Keira is the Defiant Queen to Mounts King! She is a hellion spitfire who fights him at every turn, with her sassy attitude and fiery personality… the chemistry in this one is ramped up as Mount turns up the heat in order to try and claim Keira’s mind, body and soul… Hotness overload I can’t wait to read the conclusion!!

Genre: Dark Romance/Thriller

Some would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had. 
Only I’d dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn’t marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there’s so much I don’t know about myself. That’s all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean. 
I’m the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line. 
So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar 
I’m about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.

Another incredible story by this very talented but somewhat scary author!

Isa is the daughter of the President of the USA and knows she is a round peg trying to fit into a square hole in her world. Brantley is a rich, powerful man in his early thirties who takes an avid interest in her. I can’t say too much more or I’ll give away too much.

Lurid descriptions of both characters and scenes throughout the story give extremely graphic details to enable you to feel like you are there watching everything unfold. It certainly keeps you on your toes with the fast pace of the story. Things become very wild on this Crowned by Hate ride.

This author uses some fantastic expressions like this one…
‘He’s maxed out of ego fuel.’
…when ISA talks about Brantley after meeting him at a fundraiser.

Little snippets of the story puzzle are littered throughout and yet I do believe it will take all three books to really comprehend this story fully. Bring it on sister!

Reviewed by Robyn

Where do I begin to review a book that I neither loved or hated. I just found this story to be very flat and was dark more for the shock factor rather than out of necessity. Now don’t get me wrong. I love Amo Jones and her writing but this book just wasn’t for me. I may be over dark, I really don’t know. The book was well written in saying that as is always the case. I can’t go into detail as it would spoil this for someone else.

I would still recommend this book for the dark lovers out there as we all love different things, I guess this book will be someones book of year. Unfortunately it just isn’t mine.

This book, however, will not stop me from loving this amazing author!  As you can’t LOVE everything they write and I am not going to write a review that is not an honest reflection of my feelings after reading it.

I absolutely loved this book. It contained just enough of everything to make it really enjoyable and kept me wanting more. I read this book in an evening, I just couldn’t put it down. I love the way that you get told just enough to let your imagination do the rest of the work for you, sometimes as in this case, less is more.

At the end of Sapphire, you are left wondering what happens to Grace. You know that they have come for the jewels and that Diamond is too important to let go. And this is where the story really begins. Grace is captured and the whole story explodes from there. I refuse to give anything away at all. The story is well told and leaves you wanting more and more. The characters in this book are brilliant and they chemistry they flies from the pages is just magic. This book is full of danger, sexual chemistry and a romance you won’t believe.

This book is a huge recommendation from me. The writing is just getting better and better with every book that is released. And JA Low is fast becoming a definitely one-click author for me.

I couldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting, which I have to admit, I haven’t been able to do with a book in a long time.

Our Reviews of Gun Shy by Lili St Germain

by Lili St. Germain
Genres: Psychological Thriller






A stand alone psychological thriller.



In the middle of a fierce snowstorm in Gun Creek, Nevada, seventeen-year-old Jennifer Thomas disappears without a trace.

The second girl in nine years.

Identical cases. Identical conditions. Only last time, the girl was found. Dead, stuffed in a well beside the creek that feeds the town’s water supply.

The killer was never found.

As the small town mobilizes and searches for newly vanished Jennifer Thomas, one suspect comes to the fore. But did he do it? Or is there something else at play? Something nobody could have anticipated?

For Jennifer’s friend Cassie Carlino, the worst is yet to come. As she pins MISSING posters to store windows and joins the search, she begins to suspect that Jennifer’s disappearance might be much closer to her than she could have ever imagined.

Reviewed by Nat




I visit Jennifer every evening at the diner; she seems to like the attention, and I could use the distraction. I make sure to turn up just before her shift ends, and she gives me a ride home every night. The first night she came over we ended up talking for hours. My mouth hurt by the end, every sense on high alert. I was a gentleman. I didn’t lay a hand on her again, not after she started to talk. She’s in trouble. A lot of trouble. I think it eased her mind to be able to confess to somebody who pretty much wrote the book on trouble in this town.
I mean, there’s not a thing I can do to help the girl. Not unless she tells me who got her into this mess in the first place. “That’s the problem with men,” she said to me when I urged her to give me the name of the guy blackmailing her. “They always jump straight to problem-solving. Men always want to fix everybody.”
“You don’t want to be fixed?” I’d asked her.
“I can fix myself,” she’d replied. “I just need somebody to understand.”
I don’t understand. Her predicament is something I’ve never experienced. But I can listen. I listen to her talk as she drives me home in her shiny new car every night, and it makes me feel less of a fuck-up. I mean, she hasn’t killed anyone. But she’s planning to. And that’s why we’ve found each other. I am a killer and she is ready to spill blood. She is a welcome distraction from my sins, and I am a makeshift altar for her to lay her own sins upon. Because when I’m with Jennifer, I don’t think about Cassie Carlino. I don’t think of Karen Brainard. And, most especially, I don’t think of Teresa King and the way she burned beside me in that car.

The night Jennifer Thomas disappears is like all the rest. I go to the diner. Order nachos and a Coke. I’m surprised Jennifer is working. It’s Thanksgiving, and the place is deserted. Even Amanda is nowhere to be seen.
“Working on Thanksgiving?” I ask Jennifer, as she slides my food in front of me. She shrugs, that glitter lipgloss catching the light as she moves. “It’s just another day, isn’t it?”
I nod.
“Besides,” she says, “It pisses my dad off. I asked for this shift.”
At ten, I help her to turn out all the lights. I wait beside her as she locks the front doors of the diner, feeling vaguely worried about the fact that somebody left a sixteen year old cheerleader alone to lock up this late at night. I note the lack of video surveillance, the remote location, the fact that everyone is tucked safely inside their houses while Jennifer is alone with a convicted criminal in the dead of night.
Jennifer offers me a ride home, which I accept. Except, instead of driving me straight home like she has done for the past six nights in a row, Jennifer pulls her Range Rover off the road into an uncleared section of pine trees that tower over us. The track is narrow and winding and she doesn’t answer me when I ask her where she’s taking us.
She stops in a small clearing and cuts the lights. The engine is still running. Bits of snow fall outside, slow and bloated in their trajectory toward the ground. Jennifer’s hands are small as they grip the steering wheel; her eyes lit up by the red illumination of the dashboard, making her look almost demonic.
“What are we doing here?” I ask her again.
“I don’t want to go home,” she says staring straight ahead.
“Fair enough,” I reply. I watch her as she struggles to find words. She squirms in her heated leather seat, her nails shiny and perfect, her shoulders sagging under the weight of something I cannot see.
“Do you think I’m pretty?” she asks me in a tiny voice, and she sounds so mouse-like and weak that I almost laugh.
“Do I think you’re pretty?” I echo, feeling a smirk cut its way across my face. “Jennifer, you’re so pretty I could die just from looking at you.”
She rolls her eyes. “You think I’m stupid. You’re just here because you feel sorry for me, Leo.”
I shake my head. “I don’t think you’re stupid. And I’m not here because I feel sorry for you.”
She swallows thickly; I can see the pulse beat nervously in her throat. “Then why are you here?”
“Well, I guess I’m here right now because you just drove us off the road and into the woods.”
“You know what I mean.”
Do, I, though? I sigh. “Because you’re the only person in this town worth talking to who will even look at me.”
She bites her lip and I have the sudden, piercing urge inside my skull to wrap my hands around her throat and drag her onto my lap. That’s some messed up shit. She’s sixteen. Six. TEEN. I’m repeating the number in my head over and over, willing my dick to settle down. I can feel the throb of wanting her in my cock, in the thunderous rush of blood that makes my heart hit my ribcage like the firing of a gun, bang, bang, bang. My need eclipses my rationality. So what if she’s sixteen? She drove into this fucking clearing and licked her lips and asked me if I thought she was pretty.
“Why have you been back to the diner every single night, just as I’m about to get off shift?”
“Umm,” I try. “It’s the only decent place in town?”
She narrows her eyes at me and there’s a fire inside her pupils; it might be below freezing outside, but it’s a billion degrees in here. We’re already fogging up the windows with our breath, and I haven’t even laid a finger on her.
“Liar,” she says. “I want the real reason.”
You’re about to get the real reason, sweetheart. I grip the armrest. I grip it so hard my fingernails ache.
“I’m here because I’m a bad guy, Jennifer.”
“Because you’re so pretty I can’t think about anybody else. Because I want to do things to you… that would probably frighten you. Things that might hurt you.”
Her cheeks are flush; her breathing quickens. I haven’t even touched her, and she’s already excited. Or scared. Or both. I want to reach between her thighs and see if it’s lust I’m reading on her face.
“What kinds of things?” she asks.
I cover my face with my hands.  
“What kinds of things?” she repeats, a hand on my shoulder. I let my hands fall into my lap and fix my stare on this girl who should be home with her family, not out here in the dark in the woods and snow with a criminal. I watch in awe as she slides her seat back and reaches her hands up underneath her skirt, tugging a pair of panties down her legs and unhooking them from her heels. She can’t look at me as she hands me a pair of baby blue silk panties with a bow on the front. I grip the underwear in my fist so tight I could tear it to shreds with a single pull, but I don’t rip it. I find the damp spot of arousal in the center of the material and bring it up to my face. I close my eyes. I breathe Jennifer in.
I shouldn’t be here. Not with her. Not like this. I will get out of the car, I decide. I will walk home. I will not touch this girl.
But then, “I promise I won’t tell anyone,” she whispers.
I grab her. I drown her shock out with my mouth. I squeeze her slender neck with my prison-rough palms. I keep my promise and I hurt Jennifer Thomas until I’m sated.
It’s only after when I’m looking at the blank expression on her face, the odd tilt of her neck, the bruises blossoming on her spread thighs, that I understand what I have done.
By then, it’s too late.
The night Jennifer Thomas disappears is like all the rest.
Apart from the way it ends.

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. 
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. 
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase. 
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

Dark, dangerous and raw… absolutely fantastic book! Watch out for what you wish for… as that monster may just come to life and then you’re running for your life! This was totally different from anything else I have read, I was totally captivated and intrigued from the start and was not disappointed at all. The characters were so dark and twisted.. each of them had their demons to fight, but the more time they spent with each other the light started coming into their lives… but there was still a monster lurking and both of them were the bait.

Where do I begin with this book, I will start by saying the book is brilliantly written and the first 30% of this book had me hooked. I couldn’t put it down but then I don’t know what happened it just started fall flat for me. There want enough going on really to hold me captivated. I carried on reading the book and although I liked the story and the characters, there was just something missing for me.

I would still recommend this books as everyone is completely different and although I was left wanting, someone else will absolutely love it, I am sure.

Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact. 

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. 
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. 
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. 


She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.
