✿WHAT WE’RE CURRENTLY READING✿

THE DARK KING (Deviant Kings #1) by GINA L. MAXWELL
Standalone in a series.
We absolutely love Fae romance – it’s our kryptonite and we are LOVING THIS BOOK! Sexy, swoony, sneaky hot Fae! Yes, please!

‘I thought a weekend away would be the perfect escape. Until I woke up married and trapped…by the king of the Dark Fae.’
Available to Pre Order (Releasing 27 September) Ebook   Paperback 

SYNOPSIS

For Bryn Meara, a free trip to the exclusive and ultra-luxe Nightfall hotel and casino in Vegas should’ve been the perfect way to escape the debris of her crumbling career. But waking up from a martini-and-lust-fueled night to find herself married to Caiden Verran, the reclusive billionaire who owns the hotel and most of the city, isn’t the jackpot one would think. It seems her dark and sexy new husband is actual royalty―the fae king of the Night Court―and there’s an entire world beneath the veil of Vegas.

Whether light or shadow, the fae are a far cry from fairy tales, and now they’ve made Bryn a pawn in their dark games for power. And Caiden is the most dangerous of all―an intoxicating cocktail of sin and raw, insatiable hunger. She should run. But every night of passion pulls Bryn deeper into his strange and sinister world, until she’s no longer certain she wants to leave…even if she could.

THE KEY TO MY HEART by LIA LOUIS – Standalone beautiful, emotional, and sweet romance
Available to purchase – Ebook  Paperback  Audio 

‘Happiness is something you wear, you know. Lights up every part of you. Inside and out.’

What a book! We absolutely loved it! Lia Louis has quickly become one of our favourite authors. Her ability to deal with the most painful of human experiences, with warmth, humour, sweetness, and love that never fails to leave us emotionally invested in her wonderful stories and characters. We find ourselves smiling one minute, and in tears the next. We adore everything about her stories. If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover you will LOVE this author, so be sure to add her to your TBR’s.

The ending of this story was perfection! Talk about leaving you on a high! Lia Louis has once again delivered a winner. In a story about loss, grief, and self-discovery, she brought us hope and love, reminding us to never take a day, a minute, or a moment for granted. Life is too short. Live it and love freely!

LONDON, WITH LOVE by SARRA MANNING – Standalone – nostalgic best friends to lovers spanning many years
Available to purchase  Ebook  Hardcover  Audio 

‘He’d seen the best of her, the absolute worst of her. She’d loved him. She’d hated him…’

We absolutely love Sarra Manning, her books are always something incredibly special with real and flawed characters that feel like people you know, in a setting you can relate to. London, With Love, is an epic story about growing up, friendships, family, love, and life. It’s a story of missed chances and following your dreams. Written in the third person, which is not our favourite, we struggled for a moment or two in the beginning, but we knew this book was going to be something incredibly special, so we persevered, and we’re glad we did. This Author in many ways created something that felt so close to our hearts, with a trip down memory lane set in a city we’re so familiar with. It felt sentimental, it brought our own memories to the forefront of our minds, and we felt as if we knew Jen and Nick as we wholeheartedly felt as if we were entwined in their story. What a magnificent talent it is to write a book that speaks to a reader’s heart in this immeasurable way.

 

SOME OF IT WAS REAL by NAN FISCHER – Standalone emotional romance with passion and twists
Available to purchase  Ebook  Paperback  Audio

‘The worst blows, even when they’re not intended to harm, are the ones we don’t expect.’

Some of it was Real by Nan Fischer is nothing at all like we expected. We thought more along the lines of a rom-com and we couldn’t have been more wrong if we tried. This story is a real heartbreaker of a story. A woman lost in life seeking answers and peace through her psychic abilities and a broken man self-enforced to live in his brother’s shoes whilst needing to prove that clairvoyants are con artists. This is the story of Sylvie and Thomas, brought together at a point on their timeline where one needs the other no matter how much they’d argue against that notion. It was fraught with passion, emotion, and mystery. It was weighted by tears, heartbreak, and guilt. It was shrouded in deception, lies, and manipulations. This Author wrote a powerful book with complex and intriguing characters in Sylvie and Thomas, both of whom have had traumatic pasts, both suffering from some type of identity issue; a compelling page-turner from start till finish. We couldn’t put it down.

TEN YEARS by PERNILLE HUGHES – Standalone angsty and emotional 3nemies to lovers spanning years
Available to purchase Ebook  Paperback  Audio

‘They’d been enemies, then mates, then lovers, then enemies again, then apparently mates again, so perhaps…’

Ten Years read as incredibly real, and we felt as if we knew these characters and were a part of their story. It had bucketloads of angst and tension as well as extreme emotions and passion, with scattered laughter to break up the darker moments. It was a life and love story through ten years of hurt, anger, grief, laughter, sadness, and love. A slow-building love story is written with a sensitivity that perhaps caused it to feel a tad long, although we never felt it to be repetitive. Rather, we needed to know if Becca and Charlie were going to be okay and that they found themselves in a place where they could be happy and settled after such personal tragedy. Find themselves as well as love. What an immense journey, we cannot wait to pick up more books from this Author!

PEN PAL by J.T. GEISSINGER – Standalone supernatural, dark, erotic love story
Available to purchase – Ebook  Paperback

‘Memories are the stories we tell ourselves about the important events in our lives. In the telling, some of the details get lost, others embellished until truth is closer to fiction.’

We were intrigued by this book – and drawn to that cover! Wow! With the synopsis hinting at an epistolary romance, that was another plus, however, the final result was so much more than this! Pen Pal included a mixture of themes, and it worked well. A dark, erotic, romantic suspense with kink and supernatural elements, a thriller, and plenty of mystery, and we loved it. Then again, we do thrive on a story with an element of surprise, and Pen Pal delivered on all counts.

We can’t really say a lot more, because the mystery and surprise elements are something that must be experienced by the reader. There are plenty of triggers in this story, so please heed the author’s warning before diving in. It’s noted this story has a ‘non-traditional HEA ‘– well, there is no other way you could describe it. Is it a HEA? Yes, we believe it is. Is it a HEA in the ‘traditional’ sense of the word, well, probably not, but it does have a HEA.

ONE NIGHT WITH A DUKE (Belmore Square #1) by JODI ELLAN MALPAS – Standalone  historical romance
Available to purchase – Ebook  Paperback  Audio

‘If I am to be imprisoned forever and die a death of unfulfillment, boredom, and unhappiness, I should like some memories to take with me.’

One Night With the Duke is the first historical romance from Jodi Ellen Malpas and we absolutely loved this genre change from this much-loved Author. This is the twentieth book we’ve read by JEM, and we’ve always been huge supporters of this Author encouraging her through our reviews to push the boundaries and not staying in her lane. We loved that she did just that and it was a wonderful move because she aced it as we knew she would, marrying historical with a ‘modern’ twist undertone insofar as it didn’t feel unnecessarily heavy with regency anecdotes. Jodi Ellen Malpas has the writing skills to pen just about anything. S

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote an enticing slow-burn romance that takes you out of today into yesteryear of 1816. The world-building was fabulous and the ethos and important historical nuances, spot on. We felt as though, we too, were promenading alongside Eliza, shaking our heads at the injustice to women, wagging our pointy fingers at the audacity of men, whilst blushing at the glimpse of uncovered skin by our main rogue, the Duke, Johnny Winters *swoon*.

MOODY by PENELOPE WARD – Standalone forbidden, slow-burn romance
Available to Purchase – Ebook  Paperback  Hardback  Audio

“My happiness…and my greatest pain.” Every second spent with her always made me want her more.

A forbidden, slow burn, age gap, single parent, sexy romance from Penelope Ward is the offering in her latest novel, Moody. Moody by name, moody by nature describes the hot Dax Moody, the man at the centre of the book title, and what a man he is! A widower, a wealthy owner of a capitalist investment company, and a man plagued with second guessings and vulnerabilities.

There’s no denying the chemistry between Dax and Wren, as we hear both sides of their story in a dual POV telling. It’s electric but forbidden, for reasons that come to light as we dig further into the story. We must admit, there were a couple of surprises.

Another winner from Penelope Ward. This lady sure knows how to tell a saucy, romantic, fun, and deeply entertaining story, with characters we couldn’t help but fall in love with.
