REQUIEM OF THE SOUL: A Sovereign Soul Novel (The Society Trilogy #1) by A ZAVARELLI & NATASHA KNIGHT

Dark Mafia

‘Every last Moreno will pay in blood and misery so acute, they will know suffering more intimately than I ever could.’

Requiem of the Soul by A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight is book one in a trilogy with a bitch of a cliff-hanger. The neighbours probably heard us shout noooooooo when we realised there were no more pages left to read! We are in a dark romance kind of mood at the moment, and this is definitely everything we crave, though we will say the romance is a slow build, in the sense it’s more ‘hate-mance’ so far. Can we coin that phrase, or has it already been used?

323 TENDER WAY (Cherry Falls Book #12) by ARIA COLE & MILA CRAWFORD

‘I was recovered. She was worth it. I Was worth it.’
Life and love were both equal doses of pleasure and pain.’

323 Tender Way by Mila Crawford and Aria Cole was such a sweet, fun, saucy and easy to read romance. We whizzed through this standalone in one sitting and it was just the perfect Sunday afternoon read on the sofa. This is the second book we have read by this author duo, and they really do write flawlessly together as one. We really have no idea where one begins and the other ends. 323 Tender Way packs a lot into a short amount of time with witty banter, sombre emotional moments, and flirty fun. Both Duke and Madison are lovable characters in their own respective ways. Both having overcome personal struggles which have led to their personal paths crossing across the counter in a busy coffee shop.

BAD BOY BILLIONAIRE by AMIE KNIGHT

‘This sweet man was turning my heart inside out each and every day. And his words, they pushed me over the edge. Their sweetness. Their realness. They felt like a douse of sunshine in the middle of a rainstorm and I wanted to soak up all their light.’

Bad Boy Billionaire by Amie Knight was a lovely single dad age-gap romance, which we fell in love with right from the start. It was a quick -easy to read- swoon fest with great characters and a sexy and flirty storyline. We loved the friends to lover’s aspect as well as the building heat and ‘will they won’t they’ aspect. The chemistry was fabulous and the character utterly charming and lovable. A wonderful read from Amie Knight!

WHEN THE STORM BREAKS (Lost Stars #2) by EMERY ROSE

‘That night I fell a little bit harder for the man who fixed broken horses and for the boy who had been forced to see the ugly side of life too young.’

We were intrigued by Brody in When the Stars Fall (Lost Stars #1) and couldn't wait to dig a little deeper into his past, and of course, spend some time with Brody and his sweet little boy Noah. What a wonderful relationship these two had. We knew it would take a tenacious woman to snag this gorgeous gruff cowboy and gain his hard-earned trust, and once again, this author didn't let us down.

We’re officially addicted and hope more characters get to tell their story! We know we’ll be there for every single one of them! Who will be next we wonder? We want to hear them all! If you love angst, heat, passion, rock stars, cowboys and romance, a small-town vibe, and a loveable little boy, be sure to add this book to your TBR’s!

DEFYING GRAVITY (Shattered Cove Series #3) by A.M. KUSI

‘Maybe they were both broken. But just maybe their shattered pieces could come together and make something whole.’

A.M. Kusi managed to tell a sensitive and difficult story without demonising or generalising, instead, relying on our bonds with the characters to make their point, which they did beautifully. This is a story that will make you ache; it will break your heart and heal your heart and hopefully, it will make you think and more importantly, make you care.

This love story was a slow burn, emotional and complicated, but it was also relevant and thought-provoking. Beautiful, ugly, honest, and raw, which can be read as a standalone.

BEYOND THE SEA by L.H. COSWAY

Check out our Review and Exclusive Excerpt - We LOVED this story!

“I don’t mean you any harm, Estella. You’re safe with me.”
“Why me?”
“Because I planned for everything, but I didn’t plan for you.”

Beyond The Sea by LH Cosway was a dark, eerie and haunting journey. It had an overwhelmingly sombre undertone with depictions of tragic and horrific pasts, sins of the father, invisible chains of superstitions and grief. It reflected on religion and the ghostly supernatural. But above all it was a story of love and forgiveness. So well written and enticingly slow in its pacing, it kept us captivated. Mystery aplenty and a retribution of family sins, this is the love story of Estella and Noah; who have both been through a cataclysmic series of events.

We were obsessed with Noah and his secrets and we felt an overwhelming need to protect Estella and help her escape a fate she didn’t deserve. All whilst dying to unravel the thrilling mystery of what actually happened in the house by the sea, Ard Na Mara. LH Cosway wowed us with the scenery, the atmosphere, the characters and the storyline. She wowed us with her writing. We could not put this book down!

MATING THEORY: A Trust Fund Standalone Novel by SKYE WARREN

Mating Theory by Skye Warren was a quick dark and edgy passionate read. This Author writes in such a manner that the raw emotion spills from the pages in an almost lyrical and poetic way. We were gripped from page one and immediately fell in love with Sutton and Ashleigh. There really was something quite mesmerising about their story and the passion literally ignited the pages.

‘I was born with too much dirt to ever wash away, but as always, it can’t actually be seen; I can only feel, and God, I feel it.’

As a standalone Mating Theory is intense, sharp and filled with heat. A story of personal survival, broken hearts that heal, and overcoming fragilities through love, compassion, hope and helping hands. We really enjoyed Mating Theory, it was an emotional ride as well as super-hot.
