Standalone in a series
Irish Mobster/Mafia romance
“Family, loyalty, honor, and blood. Tis the only thing that’s true.”

SYNOPSIS
An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.
I had a plan.
Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?
Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.
That’s when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn’t a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn’t buying that either.
Too bad for him, I won’t let anyone get in the way of my mission.
Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He’s the worst kind of wrong- and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.
Because they took her from me, and I’m going to make them pay.

CROW is available to purchase below for only 99c/99p

                


TBB 5 Star Read
Standalone
Epic and beautiful love story.
“Once someone loves you that much, loves you more than you deserve, you can’t go back to being loved the normal way.”

SYNOPSIS
She has nothing to live for in the present, but finds there’s something worth dying for in the past…
Faye Barlow is drowning. After the death of her beloved husband, Will, she cannot escape her grief and most days can barely get out of bed. But when she’s offered a job photographing South Carolina’s storied coast, she accepts. Photography, after all, is the only passion she has left.
In the quaint beach town, Faye falls in love again when she sees the crumbling yet beautiful Bride Island lighthouse and becomes obsessed with the legend surrounding The Lady of the Light—the keeper’s daughter who died in a mysterious drowning in 1921. Like a moth to a flame, Faye is drawn to the lighthouse for reasons she can’t explain. While visiting it one night, she is struck by a rogue wave and a force impossible to resist drags Faye into the past—and into a love story that is not her own.
Fate is changeable. Broken hearts can mend. But can she love two men separated by a lifetime?

THE NIGHT MARK is available to purchase below

                    


Series
4 Part Dark Erotic suspense hitman series – Review to come
‘She’s one of those rare finds that you stumble upon, covered in dirt and grime that, when you scrub away the tarnish, is actually a stunning piece of art.’

SYNOPSIS
Ripley
They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.
Dylan
For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.
*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex.

“Family, loyalty, honor, and blood. Tis the only thing that’s true.”

We were in the mood for an anti-hero mob type read and thought we’d try a new author too while we were at it. So we picked up Crow by A. Zavarelli and got stuck in. Whilst erring on the side of the ridiculous, we could not stop reading, it wasn’t too heavy and it was sexy and addictive. In some respects it was that perfect easy read when you’re in the mood for being entertained with mafia double crossings, thrilling drama and lots of hot nookie. We will definitely be picking up the rest of the Boston Underworld series, as we’re invested in finding out what happens to the rest of the characters!

‘I can’t let her go, but I don’t want her to stay either. She’s confusing me. The way she touches me. How she looks at me. Inside, I see her for the fragile girl she really is, and that’s a weakness.’

Mac was quite the kick arse heroine, in fact she had mad skills but with an air of vulnerability. She was fierce and feisty, silly and naïve. She had a good heart with a penchant for putting her foot in it. We have to say she made us laugh too and her intentions were all good. Mac’s journey begins when she embarks on finding her missing friend, Talia. Neither have had an easy life and for Mac, the people she calls friends are her only family.

“You’ve wrecked me, Mack,” he says. “You’ve fucking wrecked me.”

Lachlan Crow, the next prospective leader of the Boston Irish mafia is all about the brotherhood, loyalty and respect. He is unattached and uninterested in forming any romantic liaison, unless it’s a quick shag in the back room. Lachlan is still on a probation of sorts and is being watched by everyone. He has the loyalty and protection from those around him, or does he?  The last thing he needs is a 22 year old firecracker with a shady past and an obvious hidden agenda joining the fractious and unstable relationships with the other mob families.

“The thing about butterflies, Mr Crow, is that they need to be admired from afar.”

Sometimes the more we resist the more tempted we become. This is clearly the case for Mac and Lachlan. They feel an all-encompassing attraction that have no signs of abating. What transpires is one hell of a crazy arsed ride that just didn’t let up. Whilst we weren’t comfortable at times with the extreme use of the Irish vernacular -in fact it got quite distracting in its excess- we enjoyed this story, especially the latter part.
