 SYNOPSIS

Tor

Jude Pearson could just as well kill me as kiss me most days. He was my captor, my living hell, and yet, he became my saviour, my heart. Stupid. Hes heartless, conditioned to feel nothing, and so I ran… straight into the clutches of his enemy. Joe Campbell wants Jude to suffer, and I just became a pawn in a very dangerous game.

Joe has broken me in every way, everything that I once was stripped away, and in its place is festering hatred and a rage so cold I feel nothing else. I have one purpose. Revenge. 

Jude

Love makes you weak, it makes you irrational. She was collateral, completely innocent when she was unwillingly dragged into my corrupt world. With the damage Id already caused her, I couldnt let her love me, so I let her go, and now…he has her. 

No matter where she is, she will always be mine. This man has taken every-fucking-thing from me, and he has the last thing that matters to me. I will kill him. Slowly. Joe Campbell better run because the devil is fucking coming for him. 

Sometimes two wrongs can make a right.

Rage.

Hate.

Revenge. 

Our Wrath binds us, but it may also break us.

***Warning. This book contains extreme violence, and scenes that may upset some readers. ***

WRONG – WRATH BOOK ONE
by J P LOVELL & STEVIE J COLE

Our 5 Star Review

‘She does things to me no woman has ever done, and I almost hate her for it.’

wrong

SYNOPSIS

Tor 
My life was mapped out and planned to perfection. I knew exactly what I wanted and where I was going, until I was thrust into his world and ripped from mine. In the blink of an eye everything shattered, proving to be nothing more than a cheap illusion. Now I’m living in this twisted form of hell, where enemies and friends are one and the same. I thought I wanted perfection. Now I don’t know what I want – perhaps not even my own freedom. 

Jude 
I’m the definition of wrong. I’m violent, I’m greedy, and I stop at nothing to win. I’m a notorious bookie and in my game paying with your life is not just a figure of speech. You lose, I collect. I take whatever you have. She’s collateral for a debt, and if that debt’s not paid someone will die. This should be just business, so why can’t I kill her? 
Everything is not always as it seems. 

Lust. Blood. Lies.

Nothing this wrong should feel so right.

KICK PUSH by JAY McLEAN

kick push cover

SYNOPSIS

There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you’re good.
Three if you’re really good.
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It’s the feeling of being airborne.

The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.

Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.

You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug…
And you become her poison.

Kick Push

 

Reviewed by Gitte & Jenny

✯✯✯✯ 1/2 Stars

“I see you.”

Wow; what a truly beautiful journey we’ve just been on. Kick Push felt unique, refreshing and had a hero that literally stole our hearts. We started reading and were quite simply unable to put this story down with huge lumps in our throats and aching hearts. Yet in amongst the devastating sadness was rays of hope, love and perseverance. This book had such a huge heart.

“Kick. Push. Coast….Time to coast, son.”

Joshua Warden – be still our hearts – is without question one of our favourite book heroes. This man truly is a hero in every sense of the word. Faced – at such a young age – with one of the most daunting responsibilities there is, this boy had to grow up real fast and missed out on being a teenager and a young adult.  We have to say every moment with Joshua and Tommy melted us into a puddle on the floor and we felt it to our very core. Joshua stepped up and fought with every fibre of his being to be there for his son no matter the cost to him. And believe us, he lost pretty much everything by showing maturity, selflessness and love beyond his years.

‘…how many times can a person break before the only things left are shattered fragments too small to piece together?’

A prospective pro skater star he has to give up life as he knows it to embark upon a new life with his son Tommy being the main lead. Throughout Kick Push we were in awe of this boy; so many heart melting as well as tearful moments – so much beauty.

‘There’s nothing sadder, nothing harder in the world than watching the person you love fall apart right before your eyes – and you can’t say or do anything to change it.’

There’s a scene where it seems as if life becomes so intensely overwhelming it broke our hearts and if we could, we would’ve reached into the story and pulled out Joshua and Tommy. However, we didn’t need to as the beautiful Lady Chaz stepped in and gave our boys a ray of hope and shelter. Through a surprising kindness and a helping hand our Joshua begins to set his path straight once more and whilst still fighting to give his son, as well as himself, a better life you feel and sense the change. This change begins when the broken and haunted Becca – with the emerald eyes – becomes as vital as breathing for Joshua.

‘…everything stops. Everything. My breath….My heart…My world…Everything. Stops.’

Between Joshua and Becca there’s enough baggage to take you on a round the world trip and the journey is without question one of the most morose and heart breaking we’ve been on in a while.

‘I don’t control my actions – fear does.’

Yet all along we had this feeling that the direction we were going in was one of people entering your life to move you in the right direction by playing a huge part; having a life changing impact albeit it brief or fleeting.

‘It feels good just to be able to breathe. Just breathe. Because the simple act of breathing is a constant struggle when you live your life in fear.’

So why not 5 stars; well for us – we can’t help but wish Kick Push had remained unique in the sense that it had ended at a ‘certain’ point and the future would have turned out different because of what was. We obviously can’t say too much but we were quite surprised with where the direction went in the last few pages. And in a way we want to pretend it ended at that ‘certain’ point as that would have been brilliantly poignant and even more –  incredibly special. Well for us anyway.

“I have to let you go because you’re my drug, and I’m your poison.”

It would also have made this Author a master of writing something wholeheartedly original and unique from the first page to the last.

We highly recommend this emotional tale to every single reader out there; but beware…..it may not lead where you expect it to!

**Reviewed from an ARC copy provided by the author, with thanks**
We’ll keep you posted when we have news of the next book :)

HAPPY READING! 

 ♦ HEARTS OF FIRE – HEARTS #3
by L H COSWAY
amazon us || amazon uk

“Do you ever wish, Alexis, that your heart was just that little bit smaller, so that you didn’t have to care quite so much?”
“Never. The bigger our hearts, the more beautiful our souls.”

King of Hearts

We had a feeling his story was going to slay us and leave our hearts bleeding from the moment we met him in Hearts of Fire as the drunkard plagued by demons from his past whilst clutching a crumpled Polaroid of the woman he loves.

We were right. King of Hearts had our undivided and devoted attention from the moment we began reading till we’d turned that last page. LH Cosway went above and beyond and gave us a story that exceeded every bit of our excited anticipation. There’s book love and in this case there’s BOOK LOVE.

See more of our 5++ Star Review here

*****TB NOTE:  We implore you to please read Hearts of Fire (Hearts #2)  BEFORE starting this book.  Whilst you will follow this story, what you will miss out on  is witnessing Oliver King at his lowest ebb and the special bond between him and Jack McCabe in Hearts. This is something that is NOT TO BE MISSED and will allow you to connect on another level emotionally with Oliver’s journey in King of Hearts. Besides…they’re both amazing books!

THE BOURBON KINGS – THE BOURBON KINGS #1
by J R WARD

amazon us || amazon uk

“What exactly do you want from me.”
“Anything you’ll give me.”

the bourbone kings colalge 1

The Bourbon Kings x2

The Bourbon Kings was reminiscent of a sweeping, indulgent Southern aristocratic soap opera with all the drama, lies, deceit and doublecrossing on hand…and oh the grandeur of it all!

She brought all the opulence, wealth, secrets and scandal to life in this rich and delicious tale of treachery, love, loss and deceit and we’ll be back to see how it all unfolds when we catch up with the Bradford in the next fabulous installment!

TRUTH OR BEARD – THE WINSTON BROTHERS #1
by PENNY REID

amazon us || amazon uk

“I look at you and I see my future, and it is something great. But I can’t do anything about the fact that our dreams don’t align.”

truth or beard collage

We LOVED Truth or Beard and those Winston Boys!! They most certainly could ‘charm snakes’ and you can bet we’ll be back for each and every one of their stories! We’re eager for more!!

There is something so special about Penny Reid’s storytelling! Her humour flows, her characters are normal everyday folk, her heroines always give the guys a run for their money and the wit, romance, passion and chemistry of her characters leaves us breathless and grinning like a pair of loons.

HIM
by SARINA BOWN and ELLE KENNEDY

amazon us || amazon uk

“Want you,” I whisper. Lately, those two words define me.
“Have me,” he says.

HIM Collage

We were not disappointed in this book!  We read Him in one sitting front to back with mostly smiles on our faces.

Who doesn’t love friends to lover stories?! Well we certainly do and this was a sweet, romantic and easy read about friends who meet as early teens and strike up a beautiful friendship; only to later find romance.

EASY SILENCE
by BETH RINYU
amazon us || amazon uk

‘It was mature. It was undying, and it was the kind of love that most people don’t ever even get to experience once in their life. How fortunate was I to have gotten to experience it twice.’

Easy Silence Collage

If ever there was a story that split our book hearts in two then this is one of those. As we read the love story that was Sam and Jaxson we stumbled and dragged our feet through the first half,  being told to feel – told to experience rather than actually being in the story ourselves.

Then suddenly about 40% from the end it was as if the story truly awakened – it began to demand our attention, our emotion and our undeniable riveted attention. We felt, we experienced – we truly and finally became a part of Easy Silence and it hurt. It hurt so much just the way we love it to.

RICOCHET
by KERI LAKE

amazon us || amazon uk 

‘..the man was like a finely crafted blade – lean, beautiful and dangerous enough to cut me to the bone…’

Ricochet collage

The story of corruption, double crossings, murder and disloyalty has devastating effects as people succumb like dominoes. Nick Ryder is a man who’s experienced hell whilst living and breathing with no way out. He’s seen it with his very own eyes. Eyes that can never un-see the realities of what life has become and won’t rest until the last perpetrator is left standing. Eye for an eye.

Nick’s story broke us…literally broke us. But that is all we will say because this story needs to be read unspoiled as the paths twists and turns and you are left gasping for breath feeling like you’ve just finished running a marathon of heart stopping emotions.

RUIN & RULE – BOOK ONE
by PEPPER WINTERS

amazon us || amazon uk  

‘She made me want things I’d sworn never to want. She made me weak. She made me hate.’

Ruin and Rule

To say this lady is a phenomenal writer is an understatement. Pepper Winters awakened every one of our senses with the evocativeness of her words. We could see, hear, taste and touch every single stunning line she wrote, all the while making us the willing captives of her gripping and poetic prose.

Ruin & Rule was a cat and mouse story that had us trying to unravel conspiracy theories left, right and centre. This is set in a biker world where nothing is as it seems and where avaricious manipulative men vie for power. It’s a world where lies and treachery, secrecy and deceit reign supreme.

GAME OF SCONES
by  SAMANTHA TONGE

amazon us || amazon uk 

‘So I just had less than two weeks to save Taxos and decide my romantic future once and for all. No pressure then.’

Game of Scones

This story is set in the beautiful sunny Taxos, Greece and the Author captured everything you associate with this gorgeous part of the world. The sunny skies, the idyllic unspoilt village life and the turquoise sea. You can feel, smell and see it as you read and its heaven. You wish you were there in not only mind but body.

 THE ACES SONS: CRAVING TRIX
by NICOLE JACQUELYN
amazon us || amazon uk

‘She was mine. She’d always been mine.”

Craving Trix

Nicole Jacquelyn writes some of THE best MC books we’ve read, she never shies away from delivering the hard blows invariably making her fictional MC world a gripping, raw and addictive place to be. Her stories present the rough with the smooth, the ugly with the beautiful and we can’t help but devour her books time and time again.  We especially love her heroines. They’re feisty, loveable and admirable and together with her menacing biker men who live hard and love harder we’ve been won over by her Biker books time and again.

THE LIST
by ANNE CALHOUN

amazon us || amazon uk

“There is a difference between I’ve made a mistake and I am a mistake, or I’ve done a bad thing and I am a bad thing. There is a difference between guilt and shame.”

The List

The beauty she instills through details producing vivid imagery and the intensity you feel in one single touch or look. Her writing is mesmerising; it’s sensual and calls upon every emotion and feeling. The flow and development is flawless and once again I was hooked in the unravelment of a puzzle which began at the end. The List was unique and felt powerful insofar as it centres almost entirely on our two main characters spanning a year in its entirety. Erotic blended with classic elegance – sexy mixed with geeky. It all fit and worked so well it felt like an indulgence for the senses.

KILLER – STALKER PREQUEL NOVELLA
by CLARISSA WILD

amazon us || amazon uk

‘Love is just a word thrown around to make us look good, but underneath the surface, it rots.’

killer collage

Killer was definitely compulsive reading where one minute I was loving the intriguing dramatic thrill of it only to suddenly feel confused as if I was missing what this story was trying to be and achieve. You know that feeling when something is so twisted full of double crossing but everything just ends up feeling a bit of a muddled tangle with a sudden information overload?!

STALKER – BOOK ONE
by CLARISSA WILD

amazon us || amazon uk

‘The spotlight is where I come to life; in the darkness is where my secrets lie.’

STALKER

Well…wow….jumping straight from Killer into Stalker turned out to be one violent, eye-opening and gritty ride. I’m surprised anyone was left standing at the end. Where I felt slightly detached and only in like with the story and characters in Killer it felt like Stalker literally hit me across the head demanding I pay attention whilst Vanessa and Phoenix made me feel slightly sick, disturbed, morose and uncomfortable.

FAIR PLAY - WORD PLAY PREQUEL NOVELLA
by AMALIE SILVER

amazon us || amazon uk

‘When a woman so fair touches any part of you, the devastation you feel when she pulls herself away is agony…’

Fair Play Collage (1)

 

 This is a fabulous companion novella to a book we adored from an author who really does ‘get’ our Community and doesn’t take herself to seriously…much to the benefit of us readers. The memories  and glimpses of ‘book life‘ back then….’could a book about a vampire and a human really sell?’ had us in fits, not to mention….the discussion about the item that would become our lifeline of the future….

THE TROUBLE WITH PAPER PLANES
by AMANDA DICK

amazon us || amazon uk

‘They say falling in love takes time, but I call bullshit on that. It takes guts. It can happen in a moment – a single heartbeat, even – but to hand someone the key to your happiness is the most courageous move you’ll every make. ‘

The Trouble with Paper Planes

 

This did have an otherworldly feel to it so if you go into The Trouble With Paper Planes with an open mind and an open heart you’ll be rewarded with a beautifully written, deeply moving and unforgettable story that will seize your heart. We can’t stop thinking about this one and find ourselves constantly reliving the significant moments that will stay with us for a long time to come. Word of advice though: have some man-size tissues on hand because you’ll need them!

QUIRKS & KINKS
by LAUREL ULEN CURTIS

amazon us || amazon uk

‘Two people lived inside me, begging for different things and making me feel like I was coming apart at the seams.’

Quirks & Kinks

 

We love this Author; her sense of humour is effortless and transparent through her words in Quirks and Kinks. This story starts out absolutely riveting; making us smile, laugh and swoon as we follow the beautiful, funny and likeable characters – Anderson and Easie.

We were completely entranced in this seemingly unique and oddball storyline wanting more of the quirky and hilarious concept.

HEAVY SECRETS – COMPANION NOVELLA TO HEAVY ISSUES
by ELLE AYCART

Amazon us || Amazon uk

‘He used to hate intimacy. Used to feel suffocated. Now? Now he didn’t seem to be able to breathe without Christy nearby.’

Heavy Secrets

Short, sweet and hot – Elle Aycart comes back with a companion novella featuring Cole and Christy our beloved couple from Heavy Issues. I absolutely loved this couple and remember how touching Christy’s story was and how the dominant and controlling Cole made me cry with his childhood memories and struggles which made him come across almost arrogant and rude.

I welcomed them back into my life and read with a smile on my face as we also get to catch up with the other Bowen brothers and their pregnant wives.

THE GIRL ON A TRAIN
by PAULA  HAWKINS
 amazon us || amazon uk

‘I am not the girl I used to be. I am no longer desirable; I’m off-putting in some way. It’s not just that I’ve put on weight, or that my face is puffy from the drinking and the lack of sleep; it’s as if people can see the damage written all over me, can see it in my face, the way I hold myself, the way I move.’

the girl on the train

 This is an intense read, full of twists and turns. A book full of secrets waiting to be uncovered.  I thought half way through the story I knew where it was heading but I was so far from the truth, I didn’t see the end coming it was a shocker.

This book was well written and took me on an uncomfortable ride. I felt strange for days after I had finished, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. This book could be the next big book to movie; it would be amazing to see this on the big screen.

Paper Swan

Reviewed by Jenny & Gitte

✯✯✯✯ 1/2 Stars

“And what are we?”
“We are a question that hasn’t been answered yet, a hiding place that hasn’t been found yet, a battle that hasn’t been fought yet.”

The STUNNING cover for The Paper Swan was the lure which initially guided us to this book, the synopsis providing a heart pounding tease that appealed to our inquisitive natures and an overpowering need to devour this story.

Once we ventured into the pages, it was Leylah Attar’s stirring and expressive prose that seduced into her world with the power and beauty of her words eventually holding us captive.

‘…..when we love, we carry it on the inside, and we can turn on its light even in our darkest moments. The deeper we love, the brighter it shines. ‘

The synopsis for The Paper Swan gave nothing away and for that we were grateful as the direction in which the story veered surprised us. What we thought was going to be one thing, became something entirely different and was an aspect we loved. So our advice…go in blind and prepare to be swept along with the characters and their story. It is the shocks, surprises and special moments along the way that are truly best experienced first-hand.

“You lie, that’s not vengeance I taste on your tongue. It’s fear. You’re afraid of me.”

Despite being rich, pampered and having her every whim catered for, Skye was a pragmatic and very likeable character. She maintained a strong composure after being kidnapped by a man whose overwhelming desire for revenge blinds him and drives him. As secrets and truths are revealed, Skye had to face the possibility that her well-constructed life could have been a lie. Skye’s strength, considering her predicament was commendable. This lady had heart and plenty of it!

‘The truth doesn’t always set you free. The truth can kill you, slice open your innards and turn everything inside out.’

Our heroes were multifaceted characters and peeling away the layers intrigued us. How life, choices and circumstances came to play in the roads that were eventually chosen came into play, there were moments that broke our hearts.  With vengeance becoming a driving force, the outward strength belied the vulnerability of the person inside. We feared, loved and ached for these characters at once.

“There are no good guys or bad guys. Everyone has a reason.”

The story is told from present and past flashbacks which are seamless in their execution. An at times dark and haunting story providing some intense moments and some unforeseen developments. There were some positively heartbreaking moments mixed with heart pounding romance and sizzling seductive passion.

‘When he hated, he hated with every cell in his body, and when he loved…God, when he loved, he said your name like that…..like a sigh from his soul, wrapped around his tongue.’

We always love the moment when the title becomes relevant to the story and in The Paper Swan we were clutching our hearts at this moment – it was so poignant and so utterly moving.

We will admit that whilst we were intrigued by the story from the outset, we found we didn’t completely connect immediately with the characters however this soon changed once we became lost in this authors storytelling.

‘You can either choose love or you can choose hate, because where one lives, the other will die.’

This is our first taste of Leylah Attar’s work and has made us want to explore her talent further. We were transfixed by the evocative and descriptive way she created her story providing us with an expressive and picturesque view of what was transpiring before our eyes. Her words quite literally leapt off the pages and into our hearts. The paper Swan is a definite standalone recommend from us.

‘….once you’ve been branded and molded in the fires of that possession, you will never be moved by tepid, impostor kisses.’

STALKER

 Reviewed by Gitte

✯✯✯✯Stars

‘The spotlight is where I come to life; in the darkness is where my secrets lie.’

Well…wow….jumping straight from Killer into Stalker turned out to be one violent, eye-opening and gritty ride. I’m surprised anyone was left standing at the end. Where I felt slightly detached and only in like with the story and characters in Killer it felt like Stalker literally hit me across the head demanding I pay attention whilst Vanessa and Phoenix made me feel slightly sick, disturbed, morose and uncomfortable.

‘There’s nothing redeemable about us. Nothing that makes us good. Nothing that makes us worthy of love. Not me or her.’

I have to admit to having this macabre fascination with everything as I read. You know that feeling where you look around – thank the stars for the anonymity of kindle – as you’re reading thinking bloody hell I hope no one realises and think there’s something wrong with me. Yeah, it’s that kind of book!

‘For his love, I could die. For my love, he would kill.’

What was missing for me in Killer came to light in Stalker and I understood. This story was written with intense emotion and we get the background needed to shed a light on the why’s. The why’s interrupting a continual harrowing and intense circumstance that you want to look away from but can’t. I’m so incredibly wary of spoiling anything so I won’t even go there.

‘That woman…she’s mine for the taking now, and I’m coming for her. The hunt is on.’

‘She consumed me. She ruined my life. And I will destroy her in return.’

You guys all know those books that you shouldn’t enjoy, you’re ashamed to enjoy, and you’re embarrassed of your feelings for the ‘bad’ guy…the ‘bad’ woman. Well, this is one of those stories, if you read this review and think yes, I know what you mean then pick up this story! Now, it can be read as a standalone yet Killer is the prequel. The only thing I can’t decide on is whether I would have preferred to read Stalker before Killer. In some respects I think I would have enjoyed Killer more. But that’s probably just me, an individual preference. Kudos Clarissa Wild; this was one hell of a dark and fucked up ride!

‘…he still wants to kill me. Who wouldn’t, after what I’ve done. He just can’t. Whatever is left of his heart won’t let him.’
