Carnage (Four Horsemen Book 1) by Sarah Bailey

This is the first book in the Four Horsemen series.

Prescott Ellis – Pestilence.

They call us The Four Horsemen.
Four friends forged in fire and blood.
No one knows where we came from nor how we got our name.
Drake, Francis, West and I rule the financial industry like kings.
Gods in our own right.

We grew up with a fifth. A girl. Scarlett.
She was one of us until she was ripped away from her life. The only trace of her was dust in the wind.

One day she returned to the city and sought us out. Scarlett couldn’t remember who we’d been to her, but we recalled her all too well.

If she knew what was good for her, she would have never come back. The moment she stepped through the doors of Fortuity, it was the beginning of her end. And the start of our reign over the girl who wanted us dead.

I loved reading this book. The characters are brilliant and the storyline is great.

I love Scarlett and I don’t half feel sorry for her. The four men know her but she can’t remember them. She’s a strong character with some bite, given how they treat her. She’s fighting two battles really. The reason her parents have sent her there, and how she truly feels. The connection she has with the men is strong because they know where and yet she doesn’t know that.

I love the four men. Prescott, Francis, Drake and West are all so different and I like them all. They have their plans with the situation and so despite their feelings, they are treating her a little harshly. I’m looking forward to learning more about each of them and watching their characters develop.

Their plans are only mentioned. We don’t know what happened ten years ago, only that she was taken from them and had an accident. I’m desperate to know what their ultimate plan is and what actually happened. They won’t tell her the truth because they know why she’s been sent there. There’s a lot of secrecy going on.

As much as the vagueness is frustrating, it makes for a great book because I’m desperate to read the next now.

I love the scenes between the men and her. They were pretty hot. She feels she doesn’t have a choice, and really she didn’t, but there’s also a natural spark there. I like the glimpses of emotion from them all until they hide them again.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. The storyline is great and the characters are brilliant. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.

My rating: 5/5*

Society of Psychos (Dead Men Walking Book 2) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the second and final book in the Dead Men Walking Duet.

I’m the prince of death.

A son of carnage born of wicked deeds and sin-filled nightmares.

Nobody understood me. Until her.

My Spider.

The wild girl I claimed from a sea of violent men. But others want her too…

The enemies who lurk within my walls seek to steal her from my grasp. They’re my captives, but maybe they’re the answer to my greatest fear too. Because the Grim Reaper shadows every move I make, and he’s always watching her.

Perhaps I need a ring of warriors to surround my little psycho and protect her from death’s claws.

Because now she’s stolen my black heart, I can’t fail her like I’ve failed before.

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline was fantastic, the characters are brilliant and the plot developed well.

Brooklyn is the best. I love her breed of crazy and her views on life. She can be a little exhausting to read, but that’s part of the fun of her.

Niall is amazing and I love him. He started to frustrate me at the beginning when he was resisting Brooklyn and pushing her away, but when he eventually gave it, oh it was brilliant. I absolutely love his relationship with her and I love how both of their crazies just work well together. They saved each other. It was fantastic to see him whisk her away to Vegas.

I love Mateo as well. It was good to see him fight his demons in this book and grow his relationship with Brooklyn. I loved his relationship with Niall as well. Their bickering was brilliant and at the end, after everything they had been through, it was good to see them get along for the sake of Brooklyn.

Angry Jack was a good addition in this book. I loved his relationship with Rook and it was interesting to see inside of his head. I liked how to got on with the other two as well.

I enjoyed seeing the harem come together. The three men are so different, and also not in other ways. Their love for Brooklyn brought them together. It was great to see Niall sharing her, and I love his reasoning for it. The scenes between them were all pretty hot.

There was a good plot amongst the crazy. I continued straight on from the last book and I enjoyed reading the different bits of drama and violence. I loved the crossover of characters with the KoQ guys.

The end epilogues were fantastic. It was brilliant to see them all together in the future. The last chapter in particular made me laugh.

Overall, I absolutely loved reading this book. The characters are fantastic and I loved the story. It crazy ride with crazy character, but it will definitely make you laugh. I would definitely recommend this book.

My rating: 5/5*

mybook.to/Darkempire1

They say curiosity killed the cat. Well curiosity almost killed me. One peek and I was running for my life.
Unfortunately, running didn’t save me.

When I was dragged to Ethan Prezello, I didn’t expect to walk away with my life.
In fact, I didn’t get to walk away at all, but I was lucky to still be breathing.
I was captured by the dark, damaged man, and now he won’t let me go.

The more I get dragged into his dark world, the more I don’t want to leave.
The darkness in him calls to me and I find myself powerless to refuse its call.

He may have captured me, but his damaged soul helped me choose to stay.

This is the first book in a dark, MFM Menage romance series.

Wilted Orchid (Mafia Wars) by Loxley Savage

This is the forth book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies…

The rivalry between the Italians of the Outfit and the Cosa Nostra has been ongoing for decades. So imagine my terror when I find myself, the daughter of the Cosa Nostra’s boss, at the bitter end of a raw deal with the heirs of the Outfit.

Now I’m a casualty of a so-called ‘peace treaty,’ forced into the calloused, blood-stained hands of the Moretti brothers.

Salvatore, Armani, and Fausto.

The handsome faces of the Outfit bosses don’t hide the monsters that lurk beneath. They claim I’m theirs, that my life was forfeited to them in a pact sealed with my dead father’s blood. But they’re not the only ones who want to own me.

When someone from my past lurks in the dark corners of my new existence, things turn from bad to worse. My cries for help are lost, buried among the chaos of the Moretti’s dark world.

My life was never mine. And now, if I don’t figure a way out of this, I’ll become the next victim of the Mafia Wars.

This book was absolutely fantastic, and this one hit the feels. The characters were brilliant and I loved the storyline.

Valentina was a fantastic character. She was so innocent and was literally clueless about the treaty. She finds out about it on the absolute worst way and I really felt for her. Her father was the worst for arranging it the way he did. I loved her development and how she grew in confidence. She was strong to get through everything after the way she was treated.

The boys were great characters. I loved Armani and Fausto. They didn’t mistreat her and did their best to make her feel good. I loved watching the relationship grow between them.

Salvatore was a complicated character. I absolutely hated him for the majority of the book. His hatred towards her ran so deep because of her family name and her father. His treated her the absolute worst. He did, however, redeem himself eventually. I wanted to see him grovel and by the end when he did confess his love, I liked him. I felt for Val with his treatment towards her, and then when they finally grew close, it hit the feels.

Salvatore and Valentina both deserved their happiness. She was the light that he needed. I loved watching all three men grow close to her and the scenes between them were on fire.

It was a nice change to see the wedding at the end rather than the beginning. It was necessary for the treaty, but I loved how they got married in the end because they wanted to, and not because they had to.

Marco and that drama was a good addition to the storyline and I loved the twist at the end when it was dealt with.

Overall, I absolutely loved this book and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Ruining Dahlia (Mafia Wars) by C. R. Jane

This is the third book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies. And not just my enemies. I was sold to monsters.

I should know all about how to survive monsters though, I come from a family of them.

We aren’t Butchers in name only, and surely the Rossi family can’t be as bad as the devil that’s been destroying me since I was eight years old.

New York City, the powerful head of the Cosa Nostra, is my new home. Where Lucian, Raphael, and Gabriel Rossi now think they own me.

The thing they don’t realize is that I’m more than what I seem.

A dahlia has always bloomed best in the light, and even though everything about this place and these men is shrouded in darkness, I’m determined to thrive…to win.

They play a game for keeps, a game where the only rule is that there are no rules.

They want to ruin me. But what disturbs me most is that I just might like it.

It’s me against them, and only time will tell If I’ll be the winner or be destroyed in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.

This book was brilliant to read. The characters were great and the story was fantastic.

Dahlia was a fantastic main character. She was strong considering what she had been through in the past. I loved seeing her tackle her demons in the end. I also loved watching her grow close to the three boys.

The boys were great and all so different. Gabriel was such a sweetheart towards her and I just loved him. Lucian was a great character, but I think if it wasn’t for his POV chapters, I would have taken a lot longer to come around to him. He had his demons and unfortunately, he took them out on her at times. Raphael was another broken soul. I liked him, and then I hated him, and then I loved him. These boys just needed to communicate. Even though they were brothers, they didn’t really understand each other as well as they thought.

I loved the development of their characters, and their relationship with Dahlia. She seemed to just click with them as the story progressed and I loved watching them accept sharing her. They all saved each other ultimately. They scenes between them were hot as well.

Overall, this book was a fantastic addition to the Mafia Wars series. I loved the characters and the storyline. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Gunmetal Lily (Mafia Wars) by Rebecca Royce

This is the second book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies.

There was a deal made to keep the peace. War wasn’t good for business. But deals were broken all the time. What did these powerful families have as collateral? Their daughters. A decade earlier, they decided that we were expendable, that we could be sold in marriage to keep their dealings honest. I didn’t matter more than the security I could bring to the marketplace. I was twelve when they decided that, in ten years, I’d belong to the Hernandez family. Everyone knew what was coming for me. Everyone…except me.

I have no choices. The daughter of mobsters, I now belong to the Mexican Cartel. But even the terrible images those words evoke are nothing compared to what is coming for me. My new family will discover I am more than just a pawn in their chess game. I’m named after a flower, but I don’t wilt. I am determined to come out ahead in their Mafia Wars.

I loved this book. The characters were fantastic and the storyline was brilliant.

Lily was a brilliant character. She found out about the arranged marriage, like, a day before. Considering who some of the families were, it could have been a horrible situation, but I think she actually got lucky. She’s a strong character throughout and I loved her relationship with the three brothers.

Alejandro was a fantastic character. I loved him. Considering who he was, he was kind. He did everything to make Lily happy. I felt for him and his past, and I loved Lily’s reaction to it. It was brilliant watching their relationship develop. Watching him fall for her was probably the best part of this book for me.

Francisco and Javier were fantastic as well. I loved their loyalty to their brother. They were kind to Lily as well. I loved watching them fall for her and I loved the relationship develop between them.

The plot was good. Someone was betraying the family and ultimately, Lily paid the price. I loved the devotion her three men had and the lengths they went to for her. The ending was good and it was nice to see everyone happy. They ultimately did everything to make her the happiest she could be.

Overall, this book was a brilliant continuation the the Mafia Wars series. I loved the characters and the story.

I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5

Binding Rose (Mafia Wars) by Ivy Fox

This is the first book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies.

You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.

But not for me.

A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love.
Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.

Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.

They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.

Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.

As if that was even an option.

All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.

Which leaves me to question…

Can a rose blossom in the dark?
Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?

Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline was brilliant, the characters were great and the plot developed well.

The book sets the world and situation up well. We’re introduced to the Mafia Wars and the different families involved.

I absolutely loved Rosa. She was sold to the Kelly family as part of the treaty where she’s forced to marry Tiernen. She’s an incredibly strong character to put up with him. He was a right dick at the beginning, blaming her for something which wasn’t her fault. She was such a kind hearted person, but she knew what was like and what her role was.

Tiernen was a frustrating character, but I grew to love him. He despised her because of her family. He was forced into the marriage as much as she was. Just when they started to connect, he withdraws. From there on he was a right dick, especially when he brought Shay and Colin into the situation.

I loved Shay and Colin. They cared and looked out for Rosa and I loved the connection between them from the start. They were always going to fall for each other after the situation Tiernen put them in.

I loved how the plot developed. Tiernen had a fantastic development and seeing his POV only made you love him more by the end. He had to change and he did. The three of them were brilliant with Rosa by the end and there were definitely some hot moments at times. The ending was brilliant.

This book was a fantastic start and introduction to this shared world. The characters were fantastic and I’m intrigued to read the others. Even though they are all standalones, we met Tiernen’s sister before her own wedding as well as Rosa’s brother before his.

Overall, I loved this book and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Make Me Lie (Rich Demons of Darkwood Book 1) by C.R. Jane and May Dawson

This is the first book in the Rich Demons of Darkwood series.

The world knows me as the Demon’s Daughter.
He’s a famous serial killer. And I may have been his accomplice.

But no one knows for sure except for me.

The dangerous, cruel men of the Sphinx secret society intend to uncover my secrets…and break me.

Stellan, my childhood crush who lost his sister to the Demon.

Cain, the boy with the face of an angel to who manipulation comes as easy as breathing;

Remington, the playboy soccer star full of secrets.

Pax, the dark psycho who hides behind his fists.

I hoped for a second chance at Darkwood University, only to have my dream ripped away the first time I kissed one of the handsome bastards.

They know who I am.

And they’re determined to make me pay.

They should have thought twice about who they were playing with.

Because I am the demon’s daughter. And just because they have the power, the connections, the faces and bodies of gods… do they really think they’ll win?

I wanted a new life, not a war.

But if they insist, we’ll see who ends up playing.

This book was brilliant. The storyline was great and the characters were fantastic.

I love Aurora. She is such a fantastic character. Strong, determined, and yet vulnerable, and you can’t help to feel sorry for her. She’s the victim of her fathers actions, and yet she’s being prosecuted for it.

The boys are great characters, although they are right arseholes. They’re hypocrites. They have their demons just as much as she does, and yet most of their actions are of their own doing. Aurora didn’t exactly have a choice when her father made her do the things he did. They treat her like a murderer, and yet they aren’t much better, especially Cain.

And yet I liked parts of them. There was moments when they treated her better and more like an equal. I think Pax and Remington were my favourites. They seemed far more understanding towards her at times. Stellan was just harsh. He’s struggling with the past and with who she is now Cain seemed to connect with her darkness because he has his own, but he was also a dick.

None of them seem to be able to accept that she didn’t do the things she was made to do willingly. They just see and believe the worst in her.

I enjoyed watching the interactions and development between them all. They all have a spark towards her no matter how much they want to hate each other. There were some pretty hot moments.

The ending was just brutal. It was uncalled for and I seriously hope that she gets her own back and makes them pay.

Overall, this book was brilliant and I would definitely recommend it. I’m looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

My rating: 5/5*

Carnival Hill (The Harlequin Crew Book 3) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the third book in the Harlequin series.

I thought that I was broken before, but my damage never tasted as bitter as this.

The Harlequin boys are more than just a memory now. More than a daydream of our youth and an idea to cling onto.

They’re my greatest weakness and my biggest regret, but I’ve started to realise that coming back to Sunset Cove was always my fate.

My heart beats to the turn of the tide here. My skin only warms beneath this sun. And my soul will only ever be home on these streets and with the men who grew out of my memories.

But nothing is the same as I remember and the time for childish games is coming to an end.

I may want to pretend that the last ten years never happened, but the nightmare I lost myself in has followed me home and I can’t keep ignoring the things I once did to survive.

The question is, will my mistakes be the end of me and my boys? Will the choices I made then change everything now?
And will the life I never wanted steal away my only chance at the life I’m afraid to wish for?

Firstly, sometimes I really hate our celetrial authors.

I also love them because their ability to draw you into a story and connect you to characters is a darn gift.

I loved reading this book. The characters are brilliant, if not frustrating, and the story is great.

Rogue is brilliant, but her decision at the end was just pure stupid. She’s strong willed and determined, but I love how broken she really is inside.

The boys are great. I love JJ and Maverick. Seeing them together was brilliant in this book and I absolutely love the connection they have with Rogue.

Chase redeemed himself in this book. He definitely suffered enough and got way more than he deserved, but his experience has turned him into a better character. I loved seeing him and Rogue grow closer.

Fox is frustrating. I like him, and I love how possessive he is, but he is also unreasonable. You can’t control Rogue and he needs to realise that. He made stupid decisions, especially at the end and ultimately, it’s knd of his fault that Rogue did what she did.

Luther actually grew on me in this book which I never expected to happen. I enjoyed seeing a more humane side of him and seeing him face the mistakes he made.

Fucking Shawn.

Just fucking Shawn.

Jesus christ that man. I hate him. He is a psycho and I seriously hope he meets his end at some point.

The ending is painful and you two are seriously mean sometimes. I hope the boys realise the truth and save her from her stupid decision.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend this series. I’m looking forward to the next book.

Feral Wolf (Darkmore Penitentiary Book 3) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the third book in the Darkmore Penitentiary series.

Books 1 and 2 have been renamed to Caged Wolf (Darkmore Penitentiary Book 1) and Alpha Wolf (Darkmore Penitentiary Book 2).

A morte e ritorno.

My family’s motto circles in my mind as I look this problem dead on and try to figure it out.

I’ve faced worse than this. Survived worse odds than this. I won’t let this failure break me.

We have 72 hours to turn this around.

72 hours to make a new plan out of the dregs of the old.

72 hours until all hope is lost.

This task is impossible, but I still like my chances. I have an ace in my pocket and his name is Mason Cain. He might not want to help me, but I don’t plan on giving him a choice in the matter.

My name is Rosalie Oscura. And I refuse to let anything beat me

I absolutely love this series. The characters are fantastic and the storyline is brilliant. I just love Solaria.

Rosalie is fantastic. She’s a true Alpha. She’s strong and determined, and I absolutely love how she always makes the best of each situation and finds a way to make a plan.

I absolutely love Mason Cain. I love how his relationship with Rosalie has developed. He’s hurt and angey after the end of book 2, and I loved seeing him come to terms with the truth. Seeing him willing to help her eventually has been great and watching him accept his feelings had been brilliant. I love seeing them both together. He’s by far my favourite of the boys.

Ethan and Roary are both great too. I’ve enjoyed watching the relationship between them and Rosalie develop. The relationship between the three of them has been great as well. I’m happy with what happened between Rosalie and Roary, but it also made the ending so much worst.

Sin is brilliant. He’s a whole new breed of crazy and I loved it. I think Roaslie was right to get angry at him after he keeps messing up though, but ultimately, that led to his plan which did work. I loved his never-ending supply of lemons. I felt sorry for him at times when he’s thinking that he’s the outsider. It was nice to see Rosalie assuring him that he isn’t.

I think Rosalie’s relationship with all four boys are brilliant and I loved seeing them gradually getting to know each other. They are all dominant, alpha men and sharing Rosalie isn’t exactly natural for them, yet they are making it work.

Plunger. Jesus. He’s just…wow. I absolutely loved the odd Hastings chapters and what he witnessed was hilarious. Potatoes. That’s all.

I laughed a lot. Although what the hell do you have against innocent food?

The small easter eggs mentioning what happened 5 years are painful. It’s making me anxious about Zodiac Academy.

The ending. Our Celestial authors are a little evil sometimes. I shouted at my kindle. Holy shit, it wasn’t something I saw coming. How the hell is that going to be fixed?

I can’t wait for the next book. Overall, this series is brilliant and I loved this book. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
