Stream Raiders #2

THESE DIVIDED SHORES

by: Sara Raasch
Publication Date: August 27th, 2019

 

As a child, she committed unforgivable acts to free Grace Loray from King Elazar of Argrid. Now Elazar’s plan to retake the island has surpassed Lu’s darkest fears: he’s holding her and his son, Ben, captive in an endlessly shifting prison, forcing them to make a weapon that will guarantee Elazar’s success. Escape is impossible—unless Lu becomes the ruthless soldier she hoped never to be again.

Vex failed to save Lu and Ben—and that torments him as much as his Shaking Sickness. With the disease worsening, Vex throws himself into the rebellion against Argrid. The remaining free armies are allied with the stream raider syndicates—and getting them to cooperate will take a strength Vex thought burned on a pyre six years ago.

Imprisoned, betrayed, and heartbroken, Ben is determined to end his father’s rampage. Watching Elazar sway the minds of Grace Loray as he did those of Argrid, Ben knows he has to play his father’s game of devotion to win this war. But how can a heretic prince defeat the Pious God?

As armies clash and magic rises, Lu, Vex, and Ben will confront their pasts . . . or lose their futures forever.

Jamieson Valley #6

THE CANDLE PALACE

by: Devney Perry
Publication Date: August 20th, 2019

 

Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.

Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.

The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.

Stormheart #2

RAGE

by: Cora Carmack
Publication Date: August 27th, 2019

 

Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it's that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan.

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent.

This feels like more than rage.

It feels like war.

Dream Man #4.5
1001 Dark Nights #107

QUIET MAN

by: Kristen Ashley
Publication Date: August 13th, 2019

 

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family.

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard.

Enter Mo Morrison.

Enormous. Scary.

Quiet.

Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly.

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it.

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die.

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters.

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man.

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.

THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK

by: Adrienne Young
Publication Date: September 3rd, 3019

 

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.

When she starts receiving mysterious letters that seem to be coming from the past, she suspects someone of pranking her or trying to drive her out of her mind. To solve these riddles and bring the lost home again, Araceli must delve into a truly diabolical conspiracy, but some secrets fight to stay buried...

[Double Review] Confessions #3 & #4, by: Ella Frank

Confessions #3

PRIEST

by: Ella Frank
Genre: Contemporary, MMM Romance, Adult Fiction
Published: August 14th, 2018
Read: August 18th, 2018 (first time)
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 290

 

I am complex.
My love is all-encompassing.
And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule:
Don’t mess with what’s mine.

Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy.
The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear
the very ground he walked on. Including me,
the day I realized that ground ran red with blood.

At age eighteen, I became Priest.
A man without a past.
A man determined to right the wrongs of my father.
A man who never believed anyone could love the son of such a monster.

But then a thief stole my heart.
A sweetheart lit up my world.
And I forgot for a moment you should never turn your back on your enemy.

And thus begins a lesson to those who would seek to harm: Never underestimate what the Priest will do to protect the Princess and the Prick.

Confessions #4

THE PRINCESS, THE PRICK & THE PRIEST

Published: November 10th, 2018
Read: November 12th, 2018 (first time)
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 269

 

Everyone said our love wouldn’t work.
That it was too hard, too complicated, too messy.
Oh how I enjoy proving everyone wrong.

My men are smart, sexy, sophisticated—
and most of all, crazy about me.
The only problem is trying to explain
that to my big, opinionated Italian family.

But after all we’ve been through, we deserve a
happily ever after. And if there’s one
thing I know about my guys, they always
manage to have a few surprises up their sleeves.

my rate overall

I have to admit that I have no idea why I haven't review these two books when I'm pretty sure I have read them more than two times. I loved the whole idea of Robbie having a happily ever after with these two perfect guys called Priest and Prick.

Every book in this series focus on one person of this trio, so I was very excited to read about Priest. I knew shit was going to hit the fan in a bad way after the end of Julien. I couldn't put down the book, okay? And after that, I read it all over again like two times. If the other books were romance packed, this one had action and a whole lot of backstory from when Joel was growing up. Seeing Joel torn because his past finally caught up him and in the most horrible way he can think possible was devastating, really. But having the help of someone that was very unexpected and Robbie made everything perfect. In the end, the Priest was saved thanks to a Princess.

Now, The Princess, the Prick & the Priest is a book of the three of them coming together. No more skeletons in the closet and just making their lives fit together in the most beautiful way possible. Reading this book is like a breath of fresh air. I felt like I was actually reading a whole book of Epilogue, even though the Epilogue in this book is super sweet. I enjoy every romance, hilarious, and deep scene in this book. I ate it all and came out as happy as if someone told me that I won the lottery.

Ella Frank writes well. Good. Perfection. She is and will be an author that will be on my sights for future books just so I can read them. Beware that she loves cliffhangers, so I recommend you to read the whole series instead of just one book. I enjoyed this series and recommend it wholeheartedly.
