DISTORTED (Alabaster Penitentiary #1) by NYLA K.

5 Dark MM Romance stars!

‘That’s what they want…They want you dead, that’s why you’re here. Everyone thinks you’re dead, and now you are. You’re as good as dead.’

What did we just read? Oh wow…. Distorted by Nyla K. – we are speechless! We have never read this Author before and we went into this book completely blind. We’ll be honest with you; we did read the synopsis after a reader recommended it to us, but that’s it, we stayed away from all reviews and wow are we glad we did! 

Warped, twisted, violent, tragic, horrific yet sweet and tender, Distorted drew us in and swallowed us whole. At no point could we look away, yet we had to take the odd break to process what we just read. Clever, agonisingly fragile yet hard-hitting, it evoked every single one of our senses and the characters stole our hearts along the way. which surprised us- until it didn’t. What a powerful read. Unique, exhilarating, and magnificent storytelling. We have no words. Other than we bloody loved it!

THE MADDEST OBSESSION (Made #2) by DANIELLE LORI

5 fantastic stars! A definite for the Top Reads of 2021 lists!

‘He wanted me, and he hated it. I was his own little game. If he touched me, he’d lose. I suddenly knew, this was a game I wanted to play with everything in me.’

The Maddest Obsession by Danielle Lori has without question become one of our most loved dark mafia/antihero romances we’ve read to date. It was outstanding, ticked all our book love boxes and is a favourite for 2021. Why?

You’ll be reading late into the night, just as we did! Just have a fan or a glass of ice cubes at hand……just saying!

CANDY COLORED SKY by GINGER SCOTT

‘I don’t know exactly who I’m supposed to be around her, or rather, what version of me she needs the most. I don’t think I actually have versions.’

Candy Colored Sky by Ginger Scott was a beauty of a book, so much so, we couldn’t put it down and upon finishing had to sit and process the words for a while. Whilst agonisingly heartbreaking, this story is inspiring, hopeful, sweet and uplifting. It is real life, and Candy Colored Sky had an authenticity we do not often come across in our fiction, which we loved. Told purely in eighteen year old, Jonah Wydner’s pov it offers a perspective we are not often privy to, either. A young man who despite his own self-deprecating thoughts knows exactly who he is and what his heart wants. Steadfast and loyal, his character stole our hearts and we saw him as nothing short of wonderful.

Brilliantly written and compelling, Ginger Scott ensures you connect with every single character and whilst the storyline moves along slowly, time truly ceases to exist on your journey alongside, Jonah. We don’t often read YA these days as the essence of this genre can oftentimes lose its ‘age’ and realism, whilst still staying in its fictional lane, however, when we do and are treated to such a wonderful book as Candy Colored Sky we feel invigorated and in awe. No hesitation in our recommendation, that this is a book that needs to be read. Everyone should meet Jonah!

A LONG WAY BACK (Unfinished Business #2) by BARBARA ELSBORG

5 resounding stars!!!

‘Happiness was being in each other’s arms. Happiness was a hand held, a kiss given, a smile shared, a joke told.’

Barbara Elsborg is without question our -go-to Author- when we are in the mood for an MM romance, not only is she a magnificent and unique storyteller, her passion, vivid imagery, and the way she makes us truly feel every emotion, is second to none. A Long Way Back is a testament to this and once again she wowed us! To be able to weave humour into a devastating storyline and create characters with such depth that we feel a part of them, is utterly astounding.

We can sit here for hours and wax lyrical on why and how much we love Barbara Elsborg’s writing. She makes us laugh, she makes us cry and she has us completely compelled every single time we pick up a new book by her. When we say that there really isn’t many Authors like her for making us feel so emotionally invested in mm romance, it’s because of how much we love and stand by her work.

SEA OF RUIN by PAM GODWIN

5 EPIC STARS! A book that will definitely be on our top reads for 2021!

‘He was the sea. Rough. Dangerous. Dependable. No matter how far he travelled or how long he stayed away, he always returned to me.’

An outstanding and epic tale, Sea of Ruin was stunning yet dark, passionate yet disturbing. A story we will think about in the days, even years to come and without question pick up again and again. Dipping into the backlist on our kindles has -without question- unearthed a jewel which consumed all our senses. It’s one of those books we bought on release day yet saved until the mood caught us, and we can without question say that this is why we are mood readers! It makes the reading experience that much more powerful and exciting! Captured from the first word until the last, we lived and breathed the sea, pirate life, love, heartbreak, and misfortune.

We cannot express the utter love we have for Sea of Ruin; it was incredible, it was more than we ever imagined. The vivid and emotive led depiction from Pam Godwin enthralled our senses as we fell in love with a historical pirate romance. We fell in love with the characters, we cried, we swooned, and it made us want to pick up a cutlass and board The Jade and sail into the deep waters. Searing chemistry, intense relationships, dramatic and dark we cannot recommend Sea of Ruin highly enough! You will go through hell and high waters, you will experience a poignant love affair so intense and soulful, you will feel despair and mortification, yet you will feel joy, hope, and magic too!

We cannot stress enough how much fun this book was to read! The way in which Kayley Loring executed this story was spot on. Heart-warming and perfectly spot on! A Very Bossy Christmas had all the ingredients to make our hearts laugh and sing – unbelievably sizzling chemistry, hilarious banter between ALL the characters! Declan Cannivale’s Irish/American/Italian family and Maddie Cooper’s Staten Island crew had us in stitches. We couldn’t get enough and can’t remember laughing this hard at certain scenes in quite a while.

WHEN THE STARS FALL (Lost Stars #1) by EMERY ROSE

5 heartfelt, angsty and emotional stars. WHAT A BOOK!!! You really MUST 1Click this one!!

“What happens when the stars fall, Jude?”
“I’ll put them back in the sky for you…”

Honestly, we cannot express how much we loved When the Stars Fall by Emery Rose. It felt tremendously complete if that makes any sense. A love so pure from childhood, a soul mate love that withstands everything life can possibly throw at it. It’s a sign of a magnificent Author when you openly grieve over such a fierce love lost and feel emotionally exhausted as she takes you on a journey of healing. Emery Rose is this Author and we cannot recommend this wonderful story highly enough to all our fellow romance readers who love having their hearts broken and lovingly stitched back together again!

Emery Rose is a wonderful storyteller, the writing was flawless and the vivid imagery intense and passionate. The feelings we got from reading When the Stars Fall reminded us of the books we read and fell in love with back in the day which spurred us on to start blogging just so we could shout from the rooftops: READ THIS BOOK!

LORD OF LONDON TOWN by TILLIE COLE

LIVE EARLY - GRAB A COPY NOW! 5 incredible stars!!! A book that is, without a doubt, one of Top Reads of 2020!

“My biggest fear, my only fucking fear in this whole shitshow of a world, is you being taken away from me.”

Wicked and seductively dark, violent emotional and passionate. This is Tillie Cole at her very best.

Lord of London Town read like a movie; we saw it play out before our eyes as we inhaled the words unable to stop…unwilling to stop. It was wickedly brilliant. All the characters were compelling in their own unique way; the story like nothing we’ve read before. Unique and addictive. Violent and erotic. We couldn’t look away and we didn’t want to. Standing ovation once again for the Queen of Dark Romance. There truly is no more accolades we can throw at her, Tillie Cole has left us speechless once again! We now dare her to write a paranormal because we just know she’ll nail that too!
