LIAR, LIAR by T.L. MARTIN

‘She watched me before she caught onto me watching her. She listened before she knew I played for her. She was mine before I showed her she was mine. She consumed me before I even touched her.’

Liar Liar by T. L. Martin is a dark standalone high school romance which is not for the fainthearted. Whilst high on drama and angst, the story of Easton and Eva is actually quite beautiful. What begins as something tragic and harrowing is followed by the realisation of a deep connection between them. From incredibly heart-breaking and violent beginnings to a wildly passionate love story of survival. Liar Liar is intensely emotional and upsetting, yet it has a beating heart filled with love against the odds.

In many ways, this dark ‘forbidden’ romance reminded us of the books we read and loved back in the day and it had a familiar aspect which we’ve definitely missed. We couldn’t put this books down; compelled by the writing and the characters. Without question, if you’re a fan of those provoking dark romances that at times are uncomfortable to read you will love Liar Liar by T. L. Martin.

JUST LIKE THE MOVIES by NATASHA PRESTON

‘I would love nothing more than to be with him again. To be his officially. I want him so badly but there is no way to have him and not have everything that comes with dating a movie star.’

Just Like The movies is a new Hollywood friends to lovers romance from Natasha Preston which we couldn’t wait to dive in to. The friends to lovers’ aspect was brilliantly written, especially from Spencer’s pov. This man loved hard and there was literally no drama or angst from his voice. He was such a wonderful character and a rising Hollywood star whose career is just beginning but whose fame is already widespread. How can two friends, one being a movie star and the other an emotionally damaged Uni student possibly have a romantic relationship without the world interfering?

THE WILD HIGHWAY (Runaway #2) by DEVNEY PERRY

“What do you want from me, Easton?”
“For you to get the hell out of my head.”

Wild Highway by Devney Perry is another small-town romance in the Runaway series, a series we’ve fallen utterly in love with. We say it time and time again, Devney Perry writes the sweetest emotional romance. This series is every hopeless romantic's dream. Low on angst and high on character chemistry, having that addictive second chance romance aspect we love so much. Whilst each book can be read as a standalone we’d highly recommend reading in order as the thread of the storyline continues in every instalment.

Reading Wild Highway had us feeling like we were reading with a permanent smile on our face. Yes, it was emotional too, however, the sweet romance was the most prevalent and what a gorgeous and swoon worthy romance it was. An easy and fairly quick light-hearted read, Wild Highway is a wonderful addition to the Runaway series.

FRAUD (Antihero Inferno #2) by LILY WHITE

5 STARS!!!

‘That’s what Gabriel and I are and have always been. A natural disaster. A destructive calamity. A storm so devastating that any person caught in its wake is left confused and stumbling.’

The Inferno men are devious and cocky arseholes, all sacrificial pawns and products of cruel and criminal fathers, brought up in a hate fuelled environment, leaving parts of them broken. These men are tethered by a brotherly love and fervent loyalty to each other in their passion to break the cycle of cruelty by their families. Violence begets violence. Games are a consequence of wicked behaviour, hurt and terror. Pranks have dire consequences. In Fraud we learn more of what sparked a series of events in the lives of the Inferno and secrets are revealed. However, we are still very much in the dark as to who holds what vital information, which will mean the Inferno can finally reap the vengeance they so desperately seek on their fathers.

Fraud had intense chemistry, buckets full of drama, hilarious banter and thrilling suspense. Lily White is absolutely WOWING us with this series, we have those fluttering butterflies in our stomachs knowing we’ve hit the motherlode of anti-heroes and knowing we have so many yet to read, yet wanting them all like right now! No question, the Inferno guys with their arrogant, game-playing ways have stolen our hearts in this rollercoaster ride of a series with all its twists and turns. We are OBSESSED!

TREACHURY (Antihero Inferno #1) by LILY WHITE

‘You see, that’s what happens when you make a deal with evil. Everything goes fine until the day comes when he calls in his debt.’

We devoured this book, it was everything we love in the dark antihero romance trope. Treachery was evocative in its twisted intrigue and was written so passionately that we fell in love with every single character. The thin line between love and hate almost undetectable. The intricate web of the Inferno was chaotic and a tad confusing at times, so we can’t wait to learn more of why these nine men are the way they are, why they do the things they do and how far they are willing to go.

Lily White really doesn’t hold back. Her characters have no shame in their arrogance and no scruples in the ruthless hunt where these broken souls leave scattered bodies and broken minds in the dust of their inferno. Wickedly delicious!

THE DARE (Briar U #4) by ELLE KENNEDY

“I only see you.” He takes my hand, rubbing his thumb over the inside of my wrist. “Just as you are.”

Picking up a new book in this series (and the ones before them) is like catching up with old friends. We’ve felt so connected to all the characters we’ve met and fallen in love with throughout the Briar U journey, and now we can add Conor and Taylor to that our friendship list.

The banter, the passion, the emotion and relationship struggles all part and parcel of finding yourself and growing up were once again apparent in this latest instalment, together with some topical subjects.

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!
