Darkest Temptation, an all-new standalone in The Dark Ones Saga from New York Times Bestseller Rachel Van Dyken


Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publishing Date: October 31st, 2017

I’m a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.

For centuries I’ve been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.

I deserve to be punished.

I crave things I have no business craving.

And it is manifesting itself in a way I’m terrified I won’t be able to control any longer.

Especially since she arrived.

Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.

My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.

I’m a wolf.

She’s a vampire.

The two don’t mate.

They barely tolerate one another.

All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.

And I doom us all.

Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.

Release Day blitz.jpg


In this series of standalones from The Dark Ones Saga, we meet Mason King of The Wolves, and Serenity a vampire. I really enjoyed this book I was pulled into the action straight away and had to read this in one go. At one time I only read paranormal romance, but I’ve given it a break for a few years except for select authors.
So I was really pleased to see this series from Rachel because I enjoy her contemporaries. I am so glad I decided to read this series. As it so easy to read everything flows effortlessly that it becomes joy to read.
Without giving anything away we have two broken people who begin to heal through their bond of love. It was an enthralling journey Serenity and Mason go on to become who they are meant to be.
I can’t recommend this enough, if you love paranormal you’ll love this. If you enjoy romance give it a go.

I wish someone would’ve warned me about the dangers of falling in love with your best friend.
I was no stranger to covering up my problems with meaningless sex and alcohol.
When Brea asked me for one night to help her forget, I craved being the man she needed.
Just sex.
No commitment.
Then she begged me to promise her nothing would change between us. I couldn’t bring myself to lie to her.
One night.
One broken promise.
I will never forget the night I fell in love with my best friend, and now nothing will ever be the same.

ARC REVIEW: # 1 PLAYER By USA Today Bestselling Author T.GEPHART



Lila Callan had an unconventional upbringing—unavoidable when your mother owns a brothel. But while she’d inherited some of her parents’ ‘wacky and offbeat’, she was also strong, independent and incredibly intelligent. The fact she was tall, beautiful and blond was a bonus she never really cared to exploit. She wasn’t uptight; it’s just that long term was more her thing, with zero interest in one-night stands.

Until she met Ryan York and then she isn’t so sure.

Blindingly good looking.
Insane body.
Infectious sense of humor.
And charm for days.
Ryan York was movie star material.
Except that he wasn’t.

He’d turned his back on the idea of hitting the big time, more content with being Eric Larsson’s—his best friend who was a movie star—right-hand man. Despite his laid-back persona, he was a guy who could get stuff done. And women lined up to be done by Ryan. He did not have a problem with that. Not. At. All.

Except his magical panty dropping powers didn’t seem to extend to the lovely Lila. And she wasn’t sure if she was going to teach the #1 player a new game, or find one herself.

One way or another, they were both getting naked.

My Review

This is a really fun enjoyable read, and I thought Ryan and Lila were cute together. Even though we met the pair in #1 Crush and the couple Eric and Tia from #1 Crush do appear in this book, but it can read as a standalone.
We they first met was instant attraction both deciding to enjoy a sexual relationship while Lila stays in LA for work and while living with Tia and Eric.
This is very hot sexy read, with the chemistry between the two off the charts. They grew close very quickly, and you could feel the love blossom between them.
If you enjoy a great romance where you can see love growing between the couple. I fell for Ryan myself so was very jealous of all the attention Lila received from him.
This is a funny enjoyable read from T. Gephart.

About T. Gephart


T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.
T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!
Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

A Little Too Late by Staci Hart

Publishing Date: October 24th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the nanny.

When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I’ve been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.

For nine long months, I’ve been failing.

When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.

She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.

The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.

What a delightful book this is, I really enjoyed reading about Hannah and Charlie. Charlie feels unhappy and lost since he has separated from his wife, after she cheated on him with his best friend.
All that changes when he hires Hannah to be his Au pair to look after the children.
He is mesmerised by her personality and the way she takes care of his children. Before long they are friends, and she starts bringing light back to his life after years of darkness. Eventually they fall in love, but life and love can never be that easy.
This is sweet and delightful contemporary romance, Hannah and Charlie were perfect together. Hannah comes from Holland, and the description of her baking had me drooling.
This is straight forward romance that flowed from the pages making very easy to read in one sitting. This is a feel good read, and I finished with smile on my face. Sometimes that is just what need when you have reading a lot of darker books.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

REVIEW: WEB OF LIES ( The Lies Trilogy #1) By Bestselling Author J.G. SUMNER




Genre: Romantic Suspense
Date Published: August 8, 2017
Publisher: Limitless Publishing



My perfect life is falling apart. My wife is leaving me, and I’m fighting for our marriage, our kids—for her. Then she walks through the door, and everything changes. Beautiful, sweet Beth. She’s much too young, but I can’t stay away. Despite our secrecy, someone knows. They’re using the information to destroy me. It’s not a matter of if my marriage will survive, or if I’ll be able to find happiness with my new love…it’s a matter surviving at all. I have to unravel this web of lies before it’s too late.




“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”

I don’t think I can put it any  better than Sir Walter Scott as this saying was popping about in my head while reading this book.
Web of Lies is a book where nothing is how it seems. At first we have a happily married couple with three children. Until a conspiracy is planned against the husband who naively trusts his wife and her brother as they conspire against him.
This is a great read I really enjoyed it as the machinations going on. I really felt sorry for Trent, as he is manipulated by all around him. This being the first book of a trilogy we think we know who is behind all the problems. Towards the end everyone seems to put all the surprises behind then and  carry on as normal.
We end on a cliffhanger, which I knew would happen, but I was enjoying the book so much I didn’t want it to end. Now I have to wait for Book Two Cage of Deceit.

ARC REVIEW: DIRTY RICH ONE NIGHT STAND By New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones

Lisa Renee Jones is back with a sexy, stunning STANDALONE: DIRTY RICH ONE NIGHT STAND!

Dirty Rich[107560].jpg BC

TITLE: Dirty, Rich One Night Stand
GENRE: Contemporary Steamy Romance
RELEASE DATE: October 18, 2017



That’s all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He’s a stranger. And yet, he’s not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.
He’s the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I’m one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.
I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn’t hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth.
I know his type. I’ve dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say “yes” to Reese Summer.
I know he’ll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.
I know he’ll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.
I know he’ll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.
I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated.
And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.
And so, I do.
And so, he follows.
And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?

What a pleasure it was to read this book. I devoured it in one sitting.

When we meet Reese he is a hot shot Defense Attorney who is defending a man accused of Murder and Cat is reporting the case from the courtroom.
When Cat first meets Reese in the Coffee shop, and he pushes in front of her, Cat tells him off and calls him an Arrogant Asshole to his face. The fact that he was hot, and she recognised him from the courtroom did not deter her. From that point onwards Reece begins to notice her.
The only thing Cat wants from him for is A One and Done or a One Night Stand. As always there more going on than a straightforward love story. What starts out as just sex, becomes love and mutual respect for each other?
What I love about the female leads in Lisa’s books is that they are intelligent and able to stand on their own feet. Reese is not the Asshole we think he is at the beginning, and they fall hard for each other. They also have a murder to solve. All the ingredients for great story we have come to expect from Lisa Renee Jones. If you have never read Lisa Renee Jones this is a Standalone, so it’s a good one to start with. If you are a fan this is a must read. I happily give this enjoyable read with Murder, love, and hot sex all the ingredients mixed by a master chief adds up to 5 stars

R.S. Broadhead
(The Urban Legends Series)
Publication date: October 24th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Supernatural, Thriller

Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness.

Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing…things.

Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense.

As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening.

After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason.

A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner things become darker and scarier.

Can she escape what is coming for her?

Goodreads / Amazon





WOW my hearts still pounding after reading this Supernatural horror feast. The heroine of the tale is Piper, who had a terrible beginning in life with a violent and abusing father. When her father disappears she goes to live with her grandfather. Piper is a reporter who lives in New York Her life seems fine until she receives a call informing her that her grandfather’s dead and she has to head back to Alabama.
I am not going to spoil this story for you, if you enjoy a good dose of fear and something suited to read at Halloween, or just enjoyed a burst of fear and enjoy something of the supernatural. Most of story takes place in a small town called Hell.
Then this is the book for you. This is the first time I’ve read this author, and it certainly won’t be the last. I like a good dose of fear at times and this fits the bill. I am so happy to have discovered this gem. I want say big thank to Xpresso for giving this opportunity.

This is definitely a 5 pumpkin read for an Urban Legend

ARC REVIEW: SOL ( Love in Translation Series #1 ) By Bestselling Author LESLIE McAdam

“Sol by Leslie McAdam is a gorgeous story full of poetry, sex, and love.”
— USA Today Bestselling Author, Alexis Alvarez


Cover Model: Taylor Lotre
Cover Designer: Michele Catalano Creative
Cover Photographer: Cory Stierley





The army taught me discipline. Order. Control.

None of that matters the day I walk into her classroom.

Or her bedroom.

What’s more important than my grade?

Not failing her.




WOW what a beautiful story this is, most of the book takes place in Spain. Leslie conjures the spirit of Spanish locations so well I could imagine myself walking beside them. I fallen in love with Trent who has loved Dani he best friend’s older sister, who has forever has been out of his reach.
This first half of the book seemed slow until you realise its building the emotion between Dani and Trent. There is a lot of emotion anger, guilt and love. Leslie has truly a heartfelt wonderful story, when the only thing that heal both Dani and Trent is their love for each other
“Welcome home soldier,” “This is our base and now we can both fly”
I not saying more because I want you to enjoy the story the way I did.

About the Author

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

I met him in a snow storm…
We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.
We fought.
We touched.
We fell.

She literally crashed into my life…
The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.
And I had to have her.
All of her.


Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.

I have been looking forward to Loving Storm as soon as it was announced. The first book Storm has been one of my favourites since it was released. So before reading this I listened to the Audiobook to refresh my memory. This almost carries on from the first one, and it was wonderful edition to the series. Evie is very highly strung and it was cute to see how Storm could calm with his presence.


I loved it, it was the after that intense time when you first get together. This was learning about each other and tackling the logistics of making a relationship work. I loved the wider family and their get togethers and Storm’s Gran was lovely. I’m not going to wax lyrical about this book. If you enjoyed Storm, you are going to love this. If you haven’t read Storm why not? Some of Ashes and Ember have been some of my all-time favourites, and I hope we are going to get the Audio edition so I can listen to it as well. This was the icing on the top of a chocolate cake for me as it really finishes Storm and Evie’s story
