**CURRENTLY READING**

FABLE OF HAPPINESS TRILOGY by PEPPER WINTERS: Complete Trilogy available below:
Ebook  Paperback  Audio

‘He kissed me as if he’d never known kindness. As if pain was the only thing to set him free. I couldn’t stand it. Stop! … I lost. I kissed him back. And. That. Was. It.’

Going into this very dark romance by Pepper Winters, we can’t say we were fully prepared, though we had an inkling it wouldn’t be an easy read. It wasn’t. We’re huge fans of dark romance, it provokes an emotional response, it makes you question yourself and if written as superbly as this series is by Pepper Winters, it makes you fall deeply in love with flawed characters whilst developing an understanding of their inner turmoil and consequent actions. Dark, disturbing, and horrifying – yes absolutely – but it’s also hopeful, cathartic, inspiring, and passionate. It’s quite the brutal yet epic journey and love story for Kassen Sands and Gemma Ashford.


We definitely recommend this trilogy to readers of dark romance who enjoy love stories that push boundaries and romances that take you outside your comfort zone.

NOVEMBER REVIEWS

 

THE ENIGMA (Unlawful Men #2) by JODI ELLEN MALPAS
Available now! Ebook  Hardback  Paperback  

“I’ve fought for power, Beau I’ve fought for freedom. For revenge. For hatred. But I’ve never fought for love.”

Wow….this series is absolutely RIVETING. Hands down our favourite by Jodi Ellen Malpas after the This Man Series. Brilliantly written, with an emphasis on suspense and passion in equal measure. The Enigma was captivating, thrilling, dark, erotic, and completely unputdownable. So well written, with a focus on strong character connection. We highly recommend that if you haven’t read The Brit yet, pick it up and immerse yourself in the dark world of crime, violence, retribution, and fierce love, then move on to The Enigma. This series needs to be read in order. For readers of dark romance, anti-heroes, and strong heroines, this is definitely a series to add to your reading lists!

ST SIMEON PREP DUET – HEAVEN or HELL by TRILINA PUCCI
Available now!  Book #1 Ebook  Paperback  Book #2 Ebook  Paperback

‘Our fathers are enemies. Our lives are predestined – doomed from the start.’
‘You don’t date the son of a crime boss for the Irish mob when you’re the daughter of a senator.’

Well, what can we say after reading Trilina Pucci’s St. Simeon Prep Duet in one hit? It’s a tale as old as time, a gritty, raw, and dark version of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo, and Juliet. Riddled with angst, suffering, and manipulation. Saturated in love, passion, and eroticism. Swathed in heartbreak, vengeance, and violence. This duet was quite the rollercoaster ride and Trilina Pucci had our emotions all over the place till the very last page. A dark anti-hero romance that was fabulously written, all-consuming, and skirted with boundaries, just how we like it!

There are some scenes in this duet that are so bloody hot that turning the pages scorched our fingers.

THE FASTEST WAY TO FALL by DENISE WILLIAMS
Available now!  Ebook  Paperback

“Thank you for coming to my rescue.”
“Thank you for coming to mine.”

The Fastest Way to Fall was our first book by Denise Williams and we loved it! A great mix of humour, sweetness, swoon, with a poignant storyline and wonderfully relatable characters. A slow-burn romance with a wonderful message about body positivity, for anyone who’s struggled to find their place, for those of us who have struggled with their weight, or for those who have not yet learned to love themselves, this is a story for you.

The friendship between Wes and Britta was so sweet, and their love, a wonderful slow burn as both Wes and Britta take an introspective look inside themselves.

BREAK ON THROUGH (Mafia Kingdom #3) by JESSICA RUBEN
Available Now!  Ebook  Paperback  

“I’m not a good man, and I have nothing to give a woman like you. My heart, at this point, is ice. But while you’re with me, I will protect you like my own. And when this is done, you’ll be free.”

Break on Through is the third book in the Mafia Kingdom series, and each book can be read as a standalone. We’ve really been enjoying this series – firstly with Light My Fire, then Love Her Madly, and now Talia and Leo’s enemies to lovers, arranged marriage mafia romance in Book #3.

Break on Through was a somewhat tame addition to Jessica Reuben’s mafia romance series in comparison to the previous books -but nevertheless- we enjoyed it! Low-level angst told in dual POV it was an entertaining -easy to read- enemies to lovers, arranged marriage romance in which the author dealt with the themes beautifully. The growth of both Leo and Talia was apparent throughout the story, and we loved how fierce Talia was!

EMPIRE OF DESIRE (Empire Series #1) by RINA KENT
Available now! Ebook  Paperback Audio

‘I don’t know what exactly she is to me or where we’ll go from here. But I know one thing for sure. Gwyneth is now mine.’

It started with a kiss and exploded from there. We do love a good age gap, forbidden romance, and Empire of Desire was certainly that. An age gap of 18 years to be exact between thirty-eight-year-old Nate Weaver, and his best friend’s daughter, twenty-year-old Gwen Shaw. Talk about passion…. these two ignited once their attraction took hold.

Told mostly in dual POV from Gwen and Nate, we also loved the sporadic POV’s from Kingsley. This book certainly delivered what it said on the tin – Empire of Desire is a sexy, passionate, crazy forbidden age-gap romance.
