Twice As Twisted by Savvy Rose – New Release

Twice As Twisted by Savvy Rose is now available!

~Synopsis~

The tide pulled us under, she swept us away.

Alyssa

I never wanted to get married again.

I belonged in exotic locations, making a life out of my photography. Lazy days under a high sun in a wine haze, maybe joined by a sexy pool boy. But here I am, engaged and back in Newport Beach where I grew up. I only needed a few weeks, and everything would fall perfectly into place. If I could pull it all off unscathed.

What I didn’t expect was for my fiancé to bring his twin sons along for the ride. Three Greek Gods and one dreamy beach house. What could go wrong?

Judas

I’m the ‘bad’ twin. There’s always one, right? I’m okay with that though, cuz I’m also the one who always gets invited to the party. This move is a fresh start. My chance to explore the taboo part of me that wanted more than friendship with my best friend, Leo.

I’ll admit, I loved attention from both men and women. My Greek bloodline puffing out my chest, a beacon on the beach. I could handle beach life easily.

Then I met Dad’s fiancée. A total stunner.

But damn if it wasn’t a nightmare trying to keep my hands off her.

Jeno

Dad already met someone, just a year after mom left. One brief, elated moment when I received my acceptance letter from UCLA. The next day we packed up for Southern California. A summer job was the only way I could tolerate this obnoxious town. I preferred dusty bookstores and quiet coffee shops.

The day I met Alyssa, that all changed. Left spluttering and speechless. One problem: she was engaged to my father.

How was I supposed to sleep in the same house with a woman I barely knew but couldn’t stop thinking about?

 


Dark Roulette (Games we Play Book 3) by Lindsey Powell – My Review

Title: Dark Roulette (Games we Play Book 3)

Author: Lindsey Powell

Release Date: August 10th 2021

Genre: Erotic Suspense

The games I play, they’re cruel.

The punishments I dole out, they cause maximum impact.

The words I speak, they’re soul-destroying.

But my place on this earth is not to make everyone think that rainbows and fairies exist.

The world turns and most people just want to turn a blind eye to the bad that surrounds them daily. But those of us that keep our eyes open, we know where the bad lurks and where the enemies live.

I grew up living in the underworld.

I am a natural born leader.

And now it’s my time to rule.

Becoming someone else’s prey isn’t an option.

And neither is love.

I pushed away the only woman I have ever felt anything for because love makes you weak.

Love makes you blind.

And I’ve barricaded my dark heart behind walls made of steel.

The only problem is, the woman in question is a part of my world too, and she’s about to make me question every thing I have tried to do to keep her away from me.

Will she be the one to own my dark soul?

Or will I end up destroying everything she thinks she knows about love?

I’m Marshall Turner, and this is my story.

*Please note that Marshall’s story is a dark romance containing violence which may be a trigger for some*
**Each title in the Games we Play series can be read as a stand-alone novel and is intended for readers 18 years and over.
There are cameos from each of the characters throughout the series. You don’t have to read every book to enjoy, but it may enhance your reading experience if you do.***

You like bad boys? Marshall is the baddest of them all.

The story of Marshall and Sophia is one that will have you feeling a range of emotions. A wild rollercoaster ride! Not to mention the heat and seduction happening between the pages. Enough to heat up your night. Marshall has that effect. Dominating and possessive. Yes please!
From beginning to end, this story will have you engaged and on the edge of your seat. Waiting to see what danger is coming next. I finished this in one sitting. I couldn’t nor did I want to put it down. I had to know how it all would end!!

As a whole, this book is highly entertaining. The pacing is great as well as the characters. I was completely captivated. The author has a unique style of writing and I am a huge fan of it. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next! I highly recommend this book!! I give this 5 stars.

Betraying the Beast (Once Upon a Heartbreak) by Cam Johns – My Review

Title: Betraying the Beast (Once Upon a Heartbreak)

Author: Cam Johns

Release Date: June 15th 2021

Genre: Romance Anthologies 

Vengeance becomes my solace…absolution is earned through love.

The Benoit Family has become synonymous with death. Losing three members in three years has taken its toll, imbedding the root of anger with the first, my grandfather. I could never get his cold, dead eyes out of my head. His death stare has been so prominently burned into my subconscious that I can barely get through a night’s sleep. The loss of someone so close to me bore an anger that only worsened when not only my mother dies the following year, but also the death, well murder, of my father soon after. The accident. The angst of the unknown propelled me into a darkness of solitude and retaliation.

Until opportunity knocked.

Isabella Ricci, the woman I let get away years before can soon be mine whether she likes it or not. I’m tired of being alone. Being surrounded by death and immoralities of a crime family. Being a mafia prince may have its perks, but the only incentive I need is the girl my grandfather executed a deal for me to marry before his death. I plan to uphold his wishes by any means necessary. Turns out following through can lead me to more truths than I care to find. I just hope she’ll remain by my side as I do what needs to be done.

Betraying the Beast is a twist on one of my favorites! Miss Johns unravels a story of sinful attraction and suspense that will have your pulse racing and will leave you wanting more.

If you’re looking for a thrilling quick and racing hot read, look no further! This book has it all! I give it 5 stars.

I’ve been running for far too long, but running is easy when you’re eighteen years old and you let fear consume your soul.
Running is easy when the enemy is someone powerful, respected and loved.
Running was the answer for me years ago, but now I’m ready to face my fears and put the past behind me. I’m ready to come face to face with my demons, and with the man who was the love of my life.
Love is the thing that broke me and turned me into the coward that I became.
I’m done with being that coward, and now I’m here to fight back.
I’ve spent years building myself up to this moment… The moment when I walk back into my old life.
They say don’t look back, but I’ve done nothing but look back every single day. The memories haunt me. The feelings rooted deep within me.
You’re only an easy target if you let them make you one, and my enemy won’t see me coming.
My enemy no longer scares me, but the man I used to love does.
Will he forgive me for running?
Or will putting my heart on the line a second time leave me heartbroken once again?

You ever read a book that gets you in your feels and then you’re ugly crying because of the gut wrenching stuff the character has gone through? This book was it for me. Lindsey Powell’s books always have me feeling my feels. Her writing invoke all the emotions. You hurt and cry and laugh right along with the characters. I was surprised at the ending and it had me shouting OMG! I highly recommend this book. Make sure you have some tissues near by. I give this 5 stars.

My Valentine: Siren #2 by Jaimie Roberts – My Review

Title: My Valentine: Siren #2

Author: Jaimie Roberts

Release Date: February 1st 2018

Genre: Erotic Suspense

Roses are red, violets are blue.
You’ve sent me to Hell.
Now you must join me, too.

Obsession is a word that’s followed me since the day I met her. I’m not too ashamed to admit it flows through my veins. I, of all people, realise how dangerous that can be.

I may have escaped, but no matter how much I run, she’s there, reminding me of what I did…what I miss. Even in death, she haunts me. If losing her wasn’t enough, I constantly have to live with her inside my head during the day, in my dreams at night.

She’s punishing me. It’s what she does best. Even gone, her claws sink deep into my skin.

I thought it was over.
I was wrong.
It seems Scarlet’s not quite done with me yet.

Warning: There are scenes – as in the previous book, Siren – which may trigger those sensitive to sexual abuse.

Please note: Book Two in the Siren series is not a standalone. Reading Siren beforehand will definitely enhance your reading experience of My Valentine.

Unputdownable! Dark and devious!

A sequel to Siren? YES PLEASE! From the start I was pulled into the story. I was intrigued and couldn’t read fast enough. The pacing is good. The author slowly builds suspense and will have you on the edge of your seat. Let’s talk about those hot scenes. Like forbidden fruit. You’re not supposed to like it but you do anyway. Not sorry! As the plot unfolds, my suspicions are proven right and that ending…..WOW!! I am not disappointed. 

This book isn’t for everyone because of the content. I truly enjoyed it. I am a huge fan of the author’s writing and storytelling. I know I’m in for a great read when I grab a Jaimie Roberts book. If you like dark and taboo, this book and Siren is for YOU! Add this to you TBR. I give this 5 stars.
