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!

BLACK TANGLED HEART (Play On #3) by SAMANTHA YOUNG

5 emotional - unputdownable and unforgettable stars! (This is a standalone read)

'I didn't understand what pulled us together. I didn't know what made Jane Doe the only woman who satisfied my heart, body, and soul. I didn't need to know. I just had to do what I could to not lose her.'

Black Tangled Hearts has catapulted itself to the top of our list as one of our favourite Samantha Young books!  What a story! We devoured every word in a book we found impossible to put down. Black Tangled Hearts is first and foremost a standalone story of true and intense soulmate love, yet Samantha Young somehow wrapped it in a cloak of forbidden love, passion, suspense, deceit, revenge and utter heartbreak. But, towering above it all is a beautifully potent and epic romance we followed, hearts fully invested, from young love to tortured and painful adulthood.

Samantha Young delivered a beautifully crafted story that swung from sweet to torturous and everything in between. We challenge you not to take these characters and their stories into your hearts as you swoon, cry and feel every word in this painfully beautiful love story. As we closed the last page we reflected on a story that will stay with us for a long, long time to come. What a tremendous 5 star read!

UNEXPECTEDLY YOURS by REBECCA SHEA

Review & Exclusive Excerpt

‘I used to roll my eyes at the cheesy insta-love romances that I enjoy reading, never believing that love could happen so easily…..love can happen instantaneously. I truly believe that now.’

Sometimes we just need an entertaining story to escape into and Rebecca Shea delivered just that. In Andrew (Drew) McPherson, she gave us a domineering yet vulnerable and yummy CEO of AM Advertising, one of the country’s foremost powerhouse advertising firms. Drew is not without issues – sibling rivalry and betrayal to name a couple, and Gracie entering his life knocks him for six.

Unexpectedly You was an easy, low drama read. A bit of flirty fun, intense insta-love and lots of hot passionate sex. Lots of sex! Drew and Gracie certainly had fervent sexual chemistry and one very fiery sex life!

A FAERIE STORY by BARBARA ELSBORG

5 Wonderful stars! (M/M/M)

“Is that what you’re searching for? Happiness? Peace?”
“Aren’t we all?” I want to be needed, loved. That would make me happy, give me peace.

A Faerie Story by Barbara Elsborg is like three stories in one, we say that because the three male characters; Keagan, Aiden and Pascal had such immense stories to tell that it felt so comprehensive it was not just about one man’s journey. It was three journeys which culminated into one epic story. As per usual Barbara Elsborg throws down the gauntlet on how many agonising rounds of pounding your heart can take before it shatters. There is not one single character who doesn’t bring an emotional story to the mix. Rather, each character carries internal or external scars as well as burdens from their past, with one or two more horrific than the other. We cried so many tears.

Combining a story of paranormal and mystical settings with an intense love affair between three men is quite the feat. It felt so real and tangible, it was as if we were there. And oh how we wanted to be. We wanted to gather these three lads up and bring them home.

KISS AN ANGEL by SUSAN ELIZABETH PHILLIPS

5 'I'm absolutely in love with this book' Stars!

"You're such a damned romantic. Sometimes when I see you looking at me, I have the feeling you're not seeing me at all. Instead, you're seeing the way you want me to be."

One of my reading pleasures is revisiting SEP's stories I've read and loved. Imagine when I discovered one I hadn't read before! It was like winning the book lottery. Seriously, these books are like a nice warm hug, they're like coming home and I loved this book so, so much! I loved Daisy, Alex, the circus setting and the circus animals…oh little Tater completely stole my heart!

If you haven't yet experienced the incredible work of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, you really are missing out. I could sit and read an SEP book every day. They're emotional, passionate, sweet, humorous, swoony - well, everything you could want in a romance book! Another winner from one of my all-time fave authors.

SEP has a knack of writing a really good hero. One who makes us work for his affection, for his love, they're as tough as they are soft, as prickly as they are loving…once you scratch beneath the surface, that is. And Alex Markov struck quite the wounded hero who was certainly a bit of an arse, but to see him crack….oh just take my heart and shred it right now!

Daisy Devreaux, what a doll! Sure she could be a bit whimsical, and she had the tendency to lead with her heart - but scatty Daisy was an absolute sweetheart. There was a time I was reading with choked up emotion clutching my heart because Daisy’s hurt was so palpable and I felt it.....I mean I really felt it. So absorbed was I in the moment I didn't even realise the tears were streaming down my cheeks.

BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE (A League of Extraordinary Women #1) by EVIE DUNMORE

"This is not a game to be won."
"Well, it certainly seems like a tremendous defeat to let you go."
'Don't let me go.'

What a wonderfully rich, swoony and interesting debut from Evie Dunmore. We’ve been on a bit of a historical renaissance lately and couldn’t wait to start Bringing Down the Duke. The era and the theme particularly sparked our interest, and the passion we experienced was palpable. 

Ladies, just wait until you experience the passion and chemistry between Sebastian and Annabelle! It's tangible and felt like a living breathing being of its own!
