A LONG WAY BACK (Unfinished Business #2) by BARBARA ELSBORG

5 resounding stars!!!

‘Happiness was being in each other’s arms. Happiness was a hand held, a kiss given, a smile shared, a joke told.’

Barbara Elsborg is without question our -go-to Author- when we are in the mood for an MM romance, not only is she a magnificent and unique storyteller, her passion, vivid imagery, and the way she makes us truly feel every emotion, is second to none. A Long Way Back is a testament to this and once again she wowed us! To be able to weave humour into a devastating storyline and create characters with such depth that we feel a part of them, is utterly astounding.

We can sit here for hours and wax lyrical on why and how much we love Barbara Elsborg’s writing. She makes us laugh, she makes us cry and she has us completely compelled every single time we pick up a new book by her. When we say that there really isn’t many Authors like her for making us feel so emotionally invested in mm romance, it’s because of how much we love and stand by her work.

STILL STANDING (Wild West Series MC #1) by KRISTEN ASHLEY

“Let me deal with the cloud. You need to know, I’ll tell you. Until then, darlin’, my meaning in life is, you live in the sunshine.”

This wild ride was packed with drama and heat. It had us chuckling out loud and Buck had us swooning all over the pages. Kristen Ashley has a knack for writing those yummy-licious and manly, but unapologetic heroes, the men with a capital M in every way that counts. West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC certainly makes no excuses for who he is and how he goes about taking what he wants. As always the brotherhood and loyalty shone brightly as did the protection and the fierce way these bikers love. This series is EXCITING and we can’t wait for more, and to all of you who re-read KA of old as much as we do. you will fall in luuuurveeeee!!!

WRECKED PALACE (Wrecked #3) by CATHERINE COWLES

‘We barely knew each other; had only kissed. Yet somehow, it felt as if I’d known Griffin for a lifetime. That he could see inside every nook and cranny of my soul. And with that knowledge and vision came the potential for devastating hurt….’

Wrecked Palace is a story of betrayal, loss, love and family. With  Griffin Lockwood, Caelyn O’Connor and the ‘tiny terrors’ completely stealing our hearts. This really was a story of sacrifice and immeasurable love. The children Will, Mia and Ava entertained us and seized our heart - Griffin and Caelyn captivated us with their selflessness and giving souls and their moving love story.

Watching the trust, friendship and relationship develop between Griffin, who had lost everything when his family died under tragic circumstances when he was very young develop was written with so much care and devotion to the characters, we couldn’t help but fall in love and become invested in their story. At times on the edge of our seat, other times with tears in our eyes and an ache in our hearts, we were equally swooning and smiling.

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.

OUT OF LOVE by JEWEL E ANN

5 - 'One of our FAVOURITE READS THIS YEAR' - Stars!! How do we move on from this book? Be sure to 1Click this one! What a read!

“Feel it?”
“What, Liv?”
“Wanting something so much it hurts.”

Jewel E. Ann wrote one of our favourite series in Jack and Jill, so we cannot tell you how excited we were to read this standalone spin-off, which features Jackson’s daughter, Livy.  This Author is a magnificent writer and this series is perfect proof of that. Jewel E. Ann manages to thread angst, heat, love and suspense into one hell of a fantastic story that has that underlying fierceness and sarcasm we love so much. Jack and Jill was an epic love story with Out of Love being the icing on top of an extremely emotionally layered cake of outstanding tastiness. We were gripped completely and emotionally invested from the first page 'till the last. Shedding so many tears, needing copious freezer time, and laughing out loud.

We wanted -no needed- this story to never end. Never. We finished Out of Love and wanted to start from the beginning again. We fell in love, deep deep love with Livy and with Wylder. Their story is compelling, dark, funny, sweet, hot! and so addictive. We felt like we were coming home amongst friends with Jackson and Jessica, needing more, wanting to catch up and spend time with them. We could never be done with this series. We love when our emotions are pulled through the wringer, we love when we have no idea where a story is going, we love uncovering a character; layer by layer. And we love when we laugh out loud and cry big fat ugly tears in the same breath.

HEART BONES by COLLEEN HOOVER

“You can fill your life with nice things, but nice things don’t fill the holes in your soul.”
“What fills the holes in a soul?”
Samson’s eyes scroll over my face for a few seconds. “Pieces of someone else’s soul.”

We can’t envisage a time when we’re not overcome with excited anticipation at the release of a Colleen Hoover book. We’ve been overwhelmed with emotion so many times by her phenomenal writing, been enveloped in love with her beautiful characters, had our hearts soaring and crushed by her stories, oh and yes, we’ve even shocked to the core by her suspenseful thrillers! What an incredibly gifted storyteller this lady is.

Colleen has a way of delving into real emotions. You become so acquainted with her characters, their pain becomes your pain. And in Heart Bones, she has once again wormed her way into our…well… our heart bones, brilliantly manipulating our emotions, and we love it!

THE DUTY BOUND DUET by SYDNEY JAMESSON

5 heartstopping stars!

‘The man across the hall had become my confidante and my saviour; he had given me the strength to overserve the darkest aspects of human nature, to come face to face with evil.’

If you love a dark and twisty read….GRAB THIS DUET! Thought-provoking and brilliant! 5 heart-pounding stars! Sydney Jamesson started her Duty Bound Duet with a bang and never let up – not from the first page of Duty of Care Book #1 to the very last page of The Caretakers Book #2. From start to finish this was an at times difficult, dark, twisty, utterly gripping and rewarding read. The writing was exquisite, no other word for it. We ate up everything about this duet. It was heartbreaking and at times horrific, but it was also a story about the triumph of love and unbreakable bonds. A story of good vs evil and so much more!

The Duty Bound Duet was an intense read we couldn’t put down! From the gobsmacking end of the first book to the seamless way Sydney Jamesson took us deeper into an ugly world where human life is regarded as a commodity and where evil lurks in the second book – we couldn’t look away. This is a duet we’ll be thinking about and discussing for a long time to come.

THE MINDERS by JOHN MARRS

5 incredibly gripping stars!! A MUST READ!!!

“It’s a brand new world we are living in and these are difficult times. Would it really do us that much damage if the worst parts of our history were erased?”

The Minders by John Marrs is gripping! It’s so incredibly intense; a twisted roller coaster so fast-paced you literally cannot move or attempt to do anything else. Once again John Marrs teases with a chapter from each main character, which in its very own way ends in an ‘OMG what?!’ before moving on to the next character’s chapter. You feel like you’re racing a gauntlet of cliff-hangers, waiting to make a thrilling discovery for each character, but really you’re racing to know their ultimate fate in the race against cyber-terrorism.

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!
