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*

Voyeur by Candace Wondrak

Welcome to the Dollhouse, where devils rule.I used to be a good girl.

I did everything right. But then I came home and found my boyfriend in bed with my sister, so I left, eventually finding myself at the Dollhouse—a strip club. No good girl would be caught dead at the Dollhouse, but like I said, that was the old me. The new me? The new me likes it dirty. Likes it rough. I like being put on display and watched… and he likes watching. He will do anything to take me as his own and make me his in every sick way possible. He wants to own me. To control me.

Roman is a devil in a suit, the kind of dangerous man who can bend anyone to his will. Together, with his partner in crime, Carter, he dominates me the moment we meet. But I still have a mind of my own, my own wants and desires that include a sweet, kind, and dangerously cute neighbor of mine.

If Roman wants to keep me, he’ll either have to cage me or bow to me once in a while.

Even devils can break.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were great and the storyline was good.

Zoey was a great character. I loved how she had a backbone and put up a fight against Roman’s possessive needs. I loved the relationship between them both.

Roman was brilliant. I love his dark nature and his desire to watch her made him interesting. I loved it when he gave in and took her for himself. I enjoyed his development, because he is undoubtedly possessive and controlling. He knew what he needed to do to keep Zoey. I liked the fact that he developed genuine feelings towards her.

Carter was brilliant as well. I loved the development in him and his feelings towards Zoey. I have to admire his loyalty to Roman. No matter what his thoughts and desires were, he followed Romans orders. They were definitely a package together.

Lake was alright. He definitely filled the gaps which Roman and Carter couldn’t fill, but I clearly prefer the darker men personally. He was an all round nice guy, and seeing him accept her situation with Roman was interesting to read.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was pretty hot between Zoey and the guys, and I loved the character developments.

I would definitely recommend this book.
