QUARTER MILES (Runaway #3) by DEVNEY PERRY

‘Why was letting him go so hard? Why couldn’t he love me back?’

Quarter Miles is the third book in the Runaway Series by Devney Perry and whilst you could read them as standalones, your experience of each main character’s story is better enjoyed by reading them in order. In each book you garner a little insight into the lives and hardships each of these women have gone through and how spectacularly they turned their lives around and how they eventually discover themselves, and in the process, love.

Quarter Miles was a nice easy friends to lovers, unrequited love romance with moments of angst, drama, sweetness and passion and when we say easy, that’s no disrespect to the author as it takes a lot of creative spark to make something appear so effortless. The aspect of each main character throughout the series being responsible for heading off on a road trip to return the prized Cadillac to its rightful owner is a beautiful metaphor for the stories.

THAT SWOONY FEELING (Getting Lucky #4) by MEGHAN QUINN

“I was made to woo, and damn it, I’m going to fucking woo.”

That Swoony Feeling had us laughing, cringing, swooning and surprisingly we shed a tear as well. The banter between the Knightly siblings is hilarious. The Knightly family bond and the small town loyalty and warmth is enviable. We really want to live there!!! This series is definitely for all the romance readers out there who need an escape which brings laughter and love. A place that feels like a warm hug, a place that feels like love!

NOBLE PRINCE (Tin Gypsy #4) by DEVNEY PERRY

5 fabulous stars! WE LOVED THIS BOOK and we LOVED Luke Rosen!

‘Luke was like a mirror. When I looked into his blue eyes, I was reflected there. I saw the way he saw me. It was a glorious image.’

In Noble Prince, Devney Perry has brewed a perfect blend of drama, slow-build romance, a shot of angst and some nail-biting suspense that got our hearts pumping. Along with some beautifully moving serene moments that made us melt, there was a swoon and romance factor that made our romantic hearts flutter. Luke Rosen delivered the romance and swoon and then some.

KINGDOM of the WICKED (Kingdom of the Wicked #1) by KERRI MANISCALCO

'One day you might beg me to kiss you. You might hate it. Or love it. But temptation will surge through those magical veins of yours, obliterating all common sense. You’ll want me to save you from the endless torment by giving you everything you love to loathe. And when I do, you’ll thirst for more.”

Well, wasn't this a fabulous read! Angels, demons and witches are our catnip and Kerri Maniscalco dishes up a huge helping of them all in this fabulously addictive paranormal fantasy that saw us falling in love with a belligerent, beautiful, sexy, cantankerous demon Prince with a sweet tooth and wickedly dry wit. Prince Wrath captivated us, had our heads spinning from his moods and we’re desperate to find out his end game. We were hooked from beginning to end, all the while keeping our hearts spellbound and racing throughout!

We absolutely loved Kingdom of the Wicked, finding ourselves completely gripped by every aspect. The twists, turns, folklore, the foreboding sense of danger, the crackling electricity of the Princes of Hell’s agenda, the menacing and capriciousness of Wrath together with the tenacity of Emilia ensured we were transfixed.

THE BLOOD KING (Inferno Rising #2) by ABIGAIL OWEN

‘With Ladon was where she was supposed to be, where she was her strongest, her most powerful, even though it also put her at her most vulnerable.’

The Blood King by Abigail Owen is the second book in the dragon shifter romance series, Inferno Rising. Whilst this series can be read as standalone's we urge you to read this series in order as whilst each book is about a different couple, the crux of the storyline is one that continues. We love a good shifter romance and this series is why. Fabulously written with action, drama, mystery and heat, it feels like pure fantasy indulgence. The world-building throughout the books has been brilliant!

Just what is it about these shifter romances that have our hearts beating out of our chests? We bloody love them!

VIOLENCE (Antihero Inferno #3) by LILY WHITE

5 intense and fantastic stars!

'I guess that's what happens when you hold a person so deep in our heart. You consume them and make them part of you. You share their pain. You experience their trauma. You choke on their truth because it's impossible to swallow.'

Lily White is a master manipulator, a temptress and creative storyteller. Each book consistently sends us in a tailspin of emotions time and again with her little morsels of information, uncovering just enough secrets in an appetizing yet torturous fashion. Oh, we do love it as we're torn between rushing to the end and savouring every wonderfully seductively mouth-watering word. Her visual prose had our imaginations going into overdrive - there were times we could visualise these men standing as a force - we felt them, all around us. Their strength, their power and their potency. We could see them, standing there looking gorgeous and menacing, all thanks to Lily White's words.

RIVEN KNIGHT (Tin Gypsy #2) by DEVNEY PERRY

‘After everything that had happened on that mountain, in that cabin, Genevieve and I had to lie.’
‘Day by day, I was falling in love with the lie.’

Riven Knight is the second book in the Tin Gypsy series by Devney Perry. We really enjoyed the first instalment; Gypsy King, but we loved Riven Knight! The storyline from book one continues here with the after effects of the drama that played out on the mountain. A kidnapping, a death and a fire. Just what actually happened? And why do Genevieve and Isaiah need to get married to protect themselves? Well we were absolutely dying to find out and Devney Perry had us on tenterhooks throughout. The way in which it played out was so compelling and full of twists, we loved it. The writing is superb and the intensity and intrigue gripping. Not only that, but we also loved the sibling connection with Kaine from Tragic; Devney Perry’s Lark Cove series, which was a 5 star read for us!

This series is just getting better and better with Riven Knight proving to be one heck of a heart-breaking and emotional rollercoaster ride. It had everything that excites us; romance, heat and a brilliantly written story. Not only that, it was high on suspense, drama and passion.

MY MADDIE (Hades Hangmen #8) by TILLIE COLE

“I…I’m tired Maddie. I can’t do it anymore. I can’t breathe anymore. I can’t keep feeling the flames anymore…”

My Maddie by Tillie Cole made our hearts hurt so much. We weren’t expecting a full length emotional crying fest when we began reading. Maddie and Flame are one of our favourite Hangmen couples, and we have loved the tortured Flame right from the get go. His journey has broken our heart continuously, but this time…it annihilated it. A broken man who found calm and love with the sweet Maddie, who herself needs Flame to soothe the deep scars from her horrific cult life.

Being back with the Hangmen is always a wonderful treat, one which we will never tire of. Catching up with everyone, finding out what’s been happening and just spending time with them. Well, it’s like donning our cuts and being back with our biker family.
