"I'm about to rewrite the pages of our fucking history, baby."

I've read a few books by L.J Shen and yet I'm still in awe over how captivating her stories are. From the second I picked up Ruckus I was in full on reading-beast mode and yelling at everyone that tried to interrupt me. L.J's writing is just that good for me and I don't think I'll ever get enough. 

Dean 'Ruckus' Cole has now become one of my most loved Alpha Heroes and I'm pretty sure he'll be featured in my dreams for many nights. His possessive and crazy behavior was completely swoon worthy and I never once doubted his feelings for Rosie. I loved how outgoing he was and that he didn't apologize for the things he wanted or ever try to change to how society wanted him to. He was just this very real and open character that was perfect for Rosie. 

Rosie was a character that broke my heart in two. She tried so hard to live her life to the fullest despite her illness and I loved her for it. It didn't always work and sometimes she let life beat her down a little bit, but she always got back up and dusted herself off. I admired her so much, especially when she let Dean help her look forward to the future instead of dread it. 

Honestly I don't think I stopped swooning once during this read. Dean and Rosie were just so perfect together, both a little damaged but together they carried each other through the hard times. It was a true love story and one that I won't be forgetting anytime soon.

"You're breakable, Dean Cole. I'm going to do my best to keep you whole."

Bottom line, I can't recommend this book hard enough. Dean is not a Hero that you want to miss because you will regret it, trust me on that on.


I ve been dying for Dean Cole's book for forever and I wasnt disappointed at al.Dean is one of the cool headed HotHoles he luvs his women pot and alcohol. But the one woman that he wants more than anything is Rosie LeBlanc and now he's not goin to let her get away. They have been through a lot in the past and now there are things still getting in way. It's not your normal relationship at al. Dean is a great character he is sexy has a dirty mouth what more can u ask for. But this guy as been through so much and is still dealing with things. Rosie is the the only person that can help him to be a better guy and she isn't getting away. 

Rosie God what can I say this girl is just amazing. I was dying to know more about her after reading Vicious so i knew that she was ill. I was heartbroken for Rosie through most of the book she had to deal with not just being ill but with her parents as well. There was so much pressure on her I don't know how she dealt with it al. I actually wanted to shout at parents they were so horrible it made me so angry. Then she had Dean God there relationship is just a whirlwind of emotions for both of them but they made the most cutest couple and we're hot together. If anyone deserves to have a HEA it was these two. 

This author as become one of my al time favourites. I ve read every one of her books and they are amazing so I knew this book was goin to be great. But it wasn't just great it was far more with the twists and turns and the heartbreaking story lines it was amazing. These HotHoles were sexy strong alphas men and I just luv them. 

Overall this book was heartbreaking emotional sexy and had my hooked from page one. I highly recommend it and I m really looking for to more of this series and more of the HotHoles.

The Bad Guy



Title: The Bad Guy
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2017

Blurb

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.

I'm just going to keep this review short because I don't really have much to say about The Bad Guy. I really liked the premise of the bad boy taking what he wants from the good girl but the execution kind of fell through for me. I still enjoyed the story and I'm glad I picked this up to read but I got a little bored with it at times. The entire middle felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again with Camille and Sebastian making deals to get what they wanted. It just seemed to go on a little long with their back and forth so after awhile I was wishing something more would happen.

Overall, I still liked this book and I am a huge fan of this authors work so it definitely won't be my last book from her. I can't say it was a favorite of mine but one I would still recommend for anyone that wants to swoon over a true bad guy.

The Wright Boss



THE WRIGHT BOSS
By K.A. Linde
Release Day: May 16, 2017
Standalone 

A new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

The Wright Boss is one of those books for me that I wouldn't expect myself to like and but I did. It had a lot of things in it that would usually drive me completely bonkers yet in the end I really enjoyed reading about Landon and Heidi. 

Landon Wright is the brother that got out of town as fast as possible and tried to make a life for himself separate from the Wright name. But now he's getting divorced, not sure if he'll be a pro-golfer for much longer, and trying really hard to keep from breaking down. Enter Heidi, who he has an instant attraction to and whom he wants to break all the rules for. Heidi, though, fights him at every turn because she doesn't want to become the "other woman" in the middle of his divorce, and she definitely doesn't want to be the girl that sleeps with her boss. 

I'll get my issues out of the way first before moving on to what I liked. In the end I did very much enjoy this book but it doesn't stop the fact that I was a little annoyed at Landon's marital issues. His wife/ex-wife just showed up a little too much for my liking and I just wanted to see a lot more of Landon and Heidi without that drama. 

Moving on, even with the few issues I had I still loved seeing the attraction that Heidi and Landon had. It was like this magnetic connection that they couldn't fight even though they tried, and seeing them be together despite all the reasons they shouldn't be was amazing. I just really liked them as a couple and that they were so perfect together. 

Overall, I did have my issues but they didn't make me hate the characters at all and I definitely recommend reading this book.

On Sale: May 16, 2017
Publisher: Forever

“4 1/2 stars! Top pick! This is a true thriller that will keep readers frantically flipping the pages as death and danger come at the protagonists from several directions. Zanetti's brilliance at storytelling is on full display...When it comes to high-octane thrillers, they don't get better than Zanetti!” —RT Book Reviews on LETHAL LIES

“Zanetti balances the adventure and menace of Zara and Ryker's lives with a relatable romance. The result is a story that's sexy and emotional, and filled with a rich look at love in all its forms.” —The Washington Post on DEADLY SILENCE

A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars—even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

**Pick up the print edition for exclusive bonus content!**


Lethal Lies is the second book in Rebecca Zanetti's Blood Brothers series and smoothly transitions from the first story. Now following Heath we get to see him help Anya Best as she hunts for a serial killer who's obsessed with her. 

Right from the beginning this book had my pulse racing as Heath and Anya tried to find a crazed killer. I wouldn't describe this book as a thriller, but at times I thought my heart would beat right out of my chest when I was sucked into the mystery. I loved that the story got me so captivated and I was unable to put the book down for a long period of time. 

Heath and Anya had a pretty insta-love relationship but it worked with the story and I found their connection very believable. However, Anya's character just didn't work for me at times. I can't even say exactly what it was but there were times where I was questioning why she was even there since she just didn't seem important to the story sometimes. 

Overall, this is a book I would definitely recommend if you have a few hours to sit down and get sucked into a suspenseful read. Deadly Silence should be read before starting this one so you get the full background of these brothers, but that book is just as good so it's no hardship to have to read that.
