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.

FALLING NORTH: Turner Artist Rocker Novel by ALYSON SANTOS

Review and Exclusive Excerpt!

‘…it’s not just an urge to hug him I’m fighting. No, I want to completely break him open and consume him until his mind, body, and soul are mine. I want every single breath that forms him, so when his gaze suddenly lifts and finds me hovering, my pounding heart detonates in my chest.’

Falling North by Alyson Santos was an emotional and raw story of two brothers who have grown up under horrific circumstances only to find their escape in music. Starting a band and trying to break through is their sole purpose in life and only path. Music is both therapy and the escape they need. Alyson Santos writes with such conviction and an effortless hand when it comes to the tortured rock star. Her rock stars are compelling as they truly come alive in the pages.

This is the second book in this series of standalones (check out Rising West, the first standalone) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Alyson Santos writes a great tortured rock star romance which fills you with every emotion she successfully conveys through her words.

THE GUY IN THE MIDDLE (The Underdogs #3) by KATE STEWART

‘I’m a man standing in the wake of lost love, bitterness in my heart, and singed beyond anything I can control.’

Ahhh, Kate Stewart. The author who had us in a giggling fit one minute, fanning ourselves with our Kindle reading some super-hot sex, ripped out our hearts and stomped on them with some highly emotive scenes, and drove us to frustration with some back and forth, will they won’t they, could they can’t they, heavy-duty angst. If you’ve read The Guy in the Middle you know EXACTLY what we mean if you haven’t and you love a romance that tests you, then grab this book.

RISING WEST (A Turner Artist Rocker Novel #1) by ALYSON SANTOS

Review and Exclusive Excerpt! We LOVED this book!

‘Did I see him first? The way he breathed music and bled poetry from a stag the never saw him coming.’

Alyson Santos mirrors our souls when it comes to capturing the way we feel about music in Rising West, the first book in her new Turner Artist Rocker series. Based around the rock star signings of Turner Artist Management company, we meet their latest find in the reclusive and very sensitive, Mason West. Not only does Alyson Santos capture the heart of the music, but she also captures the emotion, the turmoil, the excitement and the technical side of the music industry and we were transfixed by Masons grasp at fame from the very first page!

This author delivers her music knowledge in a somewhat poetic, almost hypnotic prose. It’s beautiful and renders the heart at one with the sad and lonely Mason. This man truly does have that sensitive artist vibe and his story tore at the very fabric of our hearts.

JUST FRIENDS (Blue Beech #6) by CHARITY FERRELL

‘I love Carolina Adams, and there’s nothing I can do about it because I wouldn’t survive losing her.’

Just Friends is the sixth book in the Blue Beech Series and our first introduction to the people of Blue Beech, Iowa where we meet Carolina Adams , the preachers daughter, and Rex Lane, the mayors son, whose family is the most affluent in their small town. A slow burn friends to lovers.

We really enjoyed our first read by Charity Ferrell and will be lining up to read more from this author. Just Friends was a sweet and sexy friends to lovers story with a twist we didn’t see coming! Talk about a side swipe! You got us good Charity Ferrell! We loved getting to know Rex and Carolina, and like Rex we were dying to see Carolina’s secret unfold. The epilogue was wonderful and made us want to acquaint ourselves with the other characters in Blue Beech from previous books.

BOSS MAN BRIDEGROOM by MEGHAN QUINN

Swoony and hilarious! This book was 5 Star GOLD!

 ‘That man, the considerate thoughtful man, is far too dangerous for my heart.’

Boss Man Bridegroom was everything we were hoping for and more. We have been so intrigued by Rath since meeting him in The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister where we cried tears from laughing at his bromance with Bram Scott. This was followed by Diary of a Bad Boy where we fell even more in love with the enigmatic Rath and once again cried laughing from the hilarious carry-ons of Bram, Rath and Roark. This series is without question our favourite by Meghan Quinn. This series is GOLD!

This series can be read as standalone's, however, once again we urge you to pick all three books up because Meghan Quinn has proved once again that she really is the queen of romantic –HOT- comedy. Why do we love her romcom’s so much? Well, because this Author has no filter, there’s funny and then there’s ‘Meghan Quinn funny’. Meghan Quinn is an author who writes natural flawless humour with no social modesty. Just the way we love it! This is a series we can re-read over and over because we fell in love with every single character and their hilarious shenanigans. This series is a must-read and once you meet these characters you’ll know why!

THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB (Bromance Book Club Series #1) by LYSSA KAY ADAMS

'A lonely marriage is the worst kind of lonely there is.'

The first rule of Bromance book club…you guessed it; you don’t talk about the goings-on in the boys’ Bookclub outside the walls of the inner sanctum. It’s a secret place for men to read romance novels to better ‘understand’ their wives, their wants, their needs and to try and emotionally connect with their other halves when all seems lost. And Gavin Scott is most definitely lost.

THE ONE NIGHT STAND BEFORE CHRISTMAS (Reindeer Falls #3) by JANA ASTON

We hereby petition Jana Aston to write Christmas stories every year, because …swoon…. This series is Christmas crack at its best!

The One Night Stand Before Christmas is Noel’s turn to find love at Christmas in this, the last book in the Reindeer Falls series by Jana Aston. We’ve already had Holly and Ginger’s stories, Noel’s wonderfully eccentric and hysterically adorable sisters. To say this series has got us one hundred percent ready for Christmas is an understatement! Christmas novellas are everything to us at this time of year, and Jana Aston has written three of our favourites. We are gutted that it’s over now and wish she’d write more.

“That’s quite the package you’ve got there, Santa.”
“Did you just make a dirty Santa joke?”
‘We move things to my bedroom after I ask Teddy if I can see his North Pole. Honestly, I’m not sure why he hasn’t run out the door yet either, but you do what you gotta do to get laid, I suppose.’

We LOVED Noel and Teddy!!! What a wonderful series this has been, we enjoyed every single Christmassy minute spent with the gorgeous peeps of Reindeer Falls.
