Moonlight Rider


Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the famous highwayman known as “the Gypsy,” is about to have his heart stolen by the very woman he intends not to marry.



Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the son of the duke of Arlington, is a nobleman of the highest order, dissolute and a thief. He is a drinker and a lover, and at night he is “the Gypsy,” a highwayman who prowls from the city of Boreas to Chappendale Forest. 

And yet, his heart is true. Impelled by a tragic past, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, offers hope to those who cannot fight their fate. So much was taken from him, which is why he gives. He himself is undeserving of love and happiness, but there are those who are worthy, like Lady Althea Standfield, daughter to the duke of Oxmoor. Independent and kind, beautiful and smart, she must be freed from the obligation of marrying him. His heart might be stolen by a woman of such fine form and finer character...but his heart is all that he has left, and it is perfectly protected. 



She licked her lips—wondering what his would taste like. How the sculpted muscles that undulated beneath the wet shirt would feel against her palms. How tight those brawny arms would hold her.
His smile widened, became knowing and he began to slide his hand slowly up and down the handle of the pitchfork in a suggestive way.
Althea stumbled away from the window, turned then looked wildly about her.
She had to have him.
Declan Farrell.
She must have him whether he was willing or not.
If it was the last thing she ever did, she would claim that man as her own!

“I have such need for you, wench,” he said.
That was more than evident to her. He was close enough for her to feel the tip of his cock pressing against her body.
The laces undone, he pushed her nightdress over her shoulders and it fell from her arms, rippled down her body to pool at her feet. Before she could take another breath, he snaked his arms around her, put his hands to her rump and lifted her. She wrapped her legs around his waist, her arms around his neck and kissed him. He took three steps to her bed, turned and drew her down with him to the narrow mattress.
From their very first night together she had known he would always be a gentle—and thorough—lover. He always put her pleasure before his own and this night was no different. His hard body covered hers, his delicious weight pressing her into the covers, and he smoothly eased her thighs apart with his hips. His lips moved to her chin, her neck, the sensitive sweep of flesh between neck and shoulder and then he was gliding down her. The moment his mouth closed over her straining nipple, she arched toward him. His low chuckle vibrated against that turgid peak to send chills down her sides.

Warning:To be read in the privacy of your own home. Reading Priest can result in extreme horniness, if this occurs please consult with the closest man/woman or your vibrator.

All you need to know about this book is this:
-He's a priest
-He breaks his vow of celibacy 
-On the Alter of his church 

If that doesn't make you want to stop everything to read this book, then you are just coo coo bananas! 

This book was just wow, and I mean that in a good way. It was taboo, sexy and completely enthralling. The second I got this book on my Kindle I couldn't stop myself from starting it. Then I wanted to cry when I did have to stop to go into work :( It had already captured my attention and all day I could only think about getting back to it. When I finally did I was very happy to be in the privacy of my own home and with no distraction.

"But it wasn't the same, getting myself off," she said. "I wanted to be fucked and used. I wanted to be filled with someone's dick, I wanted to have fingers in my mouth and in my cunt. In my ass."

Father Tyler Bell was a really interesting character and I'm really curious where all the hot priests like him were when I was suffering in a catholic school for thirteen years?!? I loved reading about what he thought of the world and especially the world within the church.

This story is definitely unique and keeps your attention. It wasn't just a bunch of smut that led to nothing. It was a crazy story of a priest falling in love and the smexy parts were just a bonus. It was Hot with a capital H, but also really sweet at times. I honestly wasn't expecting much of a romance but was pleasantly surprised with the story of Tyler and Poppy. 

I do wish that we got more of Poppy's story but even without it this was an amazing story to read and I hope that Sierra Simone has more in store for us soon.

Warning may need cold showers (a lot of them) 
This book was the hottest thing I've read in a while an it was amazing
Father Bell as been a priest 4 3yrs an he enjoys what he does he likes everything about his job everything is goin smooth until he is sat in the confession box an a very sexy voice came from the other side of the box this voice stirred something in him that as not been stirred 4 a long time he could get this voice out of his head al nite but then this voice voice came back the next day an he saw who this voice belonged 2 an it was a gorgeous sexy woman her name was poppy an something click between them the sexual chemistry was of the hook with them from first sight she could open up about her past an so could he there relationship got so intense so quick an sexual they were great 2gether Bell luvs it rough an likes 2 dominate in the bedroom an Poppy luvs it that way with him the guilty does get 2 Tyler/Father Bell but he couldn't get Poppy out of his mind an he couldn't stay away from her an she couldn't either 

Poppy as alway been a very sexual person her family r very wealthy an wanted her 2 b this pretty lil thing she had been in a relationship with an ass an he made her feel wanted but then hurt her bad using her so she moved away from everything 2 start a fresh she did anything her family would of hated an she didn't care an moved 2 where Father Bell was an she couldn't of got a nicer sexier guy who would help her with what she needed an she was good 4 him I did find Poppy's character cute an I just knew she suited him an would b good 4 him

Father Bell/Tyler an his family as been through his own fair share of shit the reason Tyler turned 2 the church in the first place was cause of what happen 2 his sister he wanted 2 make everything better he was great with everything he did an helped everyone an he wanted 2 make the church better holding meeting an fundraiser I do LUV him he is so sexy an the way he is in the bedroom is smoking hot I would next turn him away I just think he is gorgeous I want 2 b his lil lamb ;) 

I looked at the cover of this book an luvd it then I read the blurb an wanted 2 it straight away when I got It i was so excited the story was great what they both went through was hard  I found i couldn't get enough of it the sexy time was sizzlin hot the places they did it way they did it the way he would dominated her an talk dirty 2 her it was al so HOT I just wanted more i liked the way SS wrote this book it was really good in parts it's could of gone really bad but it wasn't it was done so well this is my first book I ve read I can't wait 2 read more of her stuff now 1 thing I would of luvd was Poppy's pov I wanted 2 get into her head just as much as Tyler's

If u haven't read this book or not planning on read it your mad READ IT ITS AMAZIN xxx 

I can easily say that Priest is one of the most anticipated books of the year for many readers. Who can resist a forbidden romance with a priest as the main male protagonist? 

For the past 3 years, Father Bell has been nothing than a faithful, dedicated priest for his community. 

Poppy Danforth is the person that you would call lucky, because she could have in her life everything she wants. Except she doesn't feel lucky. She feels lost. Unhappy.

She's not Catholic, but she decides to go into confession. Father Bell is immediately attracted by her, there's something about Poppy that make it impossible to stay away from her..

At first, I was really enjoying the book, I was fanning myself and I was in a blissful state of mind.

Unfortunately, after a while, I had an itchy feeling because something was missing. Page by page, I sadly noticed that in my opinion, the plot was under developed and that sex scenes overshadowed the actual story behind.

I found the forbidden aspect of this book really weak. I don't know why, but I never thought of Father Bell as a priest.

I never connected with the two main protagonists and I wish we had more chapters from Poppy's pov, this way perhaps I could have understood her actions better.

With that being same, I enjoyed some scenes and the steamy level of this one was really high.

I liked the author's writing style and it was my favorite aspect in the story, so I will definitely check out more books by her.

This is the type of book that will provoke different types of emotions and opinions in readers. This is why I recommend to still give it a try if you were interested in it, no matter my review. 

One of my dear bookfriends loved it and she saw everything from a different light, so you may end up loving it too!

Finding Audrey

Title: Finding Audrey
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Publication Date: June 9, 2015
Add to Goodreads

An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.


I'm a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella and I always wait impatiently for her new releases. No need to say that I'll read anything she writes.

Audrey is a 14 year old girl who suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder, General Anxiety Disorder and Depressive Episodes. She finds hard every sort of communication with people and that's why she goes around wearing black sunglasses so that she can avoid eye contact.
Audrey has two brothers: Frank, who is obsessed with video games, and Felix, her little brother and the only one she feel at ease with.

But where is Audrey? Will she ever be able to find the way back to her life?

This was the author's first try with the YA genre and it obviously was different from her contemporary books.

The portrait the author draws of this family was a bit over the edge, but I guess it was her purpose, in order to highlight some aspects of the story.

Audrey's mom is a stressed mom, sometimes she may appear a bit insane, but she also the one who has the reins of the family. She obviously worries all day about Audrey and take care of her-and at the same time she has to look after a four year old boy and a 15 year old teenager who spends all day playing videogames.

Her dad, on the other hand, lets his wife handle every situation and behind her back, tells the children that he is not to blame for mom's insane decisions.

This story dealt with some serious issues, as you can see from the plot.
It's Audrey's journey to a better life, where she can go out with panicking or talk to the guy she likes without running away.

If you still haven't read anything by her, you absolutely have to give her a try. Her books are the funniest books I've ever read! My favorite by her is: Can You Keep a Secret? 

Overall, it was an enjoyable story, but I know that Sophie Kinsella is a guarantee for me.

Title: King
Series: King Book 1
Author: T.M Frazier
Publication Date: June 15, 2015

Homeless, hungry and desperate enough to steal, Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, pu$$y or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, consensual and nonconsensual sex, drug use, abuse, and other taboo subjects and adult subject matter.


Doe has no memory of her past life. All she knows is that she was found in the trash, bloody and bruised. The cops never tried hard to find out who she really was, thinking that she was just another hooker roughed up by her pimp. Homeless and scared she hooks up with an actual hooker, Nikki. Nikki tells her that her only option of survival is to go to the party Nikki is going to, hook up with one of the bikers there, become their whore, and then she'll be taken care of.

Brantley King just got out of prison after serving years for murder. He's a tattoo artist, a drug dealer, and a thief in order to survive. Ever since he was twelve years old it was him and his best friend Preppy. They didn't rely on other people to get what they needed, they made their own way and took what they wanted. Asking no one for help. King hasn't had an easy life and he's a changed man now that he's out of prison. When he first see's Doe at his welcome home party, he doesn't understand the possessiveness he feels, but he wants her, and takes what he wants.

I. Loved. King! He was possessive and so intense and sexy as fuck. I literally just want to rant about this story and the characters and how much I liked them but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. This story consumed me and once I had started it I did not once get up from my couch until I was finished. WHICH I was so mad about! That stupid cliffhanger :( It killed me and then I just still laid on my couch not knowing what to do because I just wanted more!

Okay, I'm getting off topic here. Anyway, this was such a fucked up story that makes you question why you like this character so much. King was angry, and mean, and he scared Doe at times, so it makes you think you are a little insane to like such a man. But underneath all of that, King cares about people so deeply that you almost can't comprehend it. He doesn't fuck around with the fake smiles, and the small conversations with people he doesn't like. He has those close to him, and everyone else can fuck off, which I actually really liked. It made him more real in a way.

I don't actually know how to describe how this story effected my emotions. I was angry, and sad, and happy, all through the course of this book. There were dark times that scared me, and made me sad. They were just so deep and emotional that it was captivating. And then you have a character like Preppy who is completely different from King and made me laugh so much and I just sat there with a smile on my face from other times. He was seriously the best secondary character ever. Preppy and King balanced each other and they were fucked up in their own way, and because of that they always had each others back.

It kills me to say this, but I actually didn't like Doe that much. She had a lot of problems, obviously, but it annoyed me some with how she was about her memory. Always saying that she didn't want to do something and ruin her life. As in, the other her, the one in her past who had her memory. At first I got it, but it was just a little annoying that she wouldn't make any decisions that could effect the past her. This is the reason for my 4 star rating, instead of 5.

Overall, this was still a fantastic story that I am dying to get the rest of. Seriously guys, be prepared for this cliffhanger because I was screaming for more at the end. Literally yelled at my Kindle because I didn't want it to be over.

I think I fell a little bit in love with T.M Frazier after I read The Dark Light of Day and this book just proved my love. I really don't know how someone can create such amazing books that are so deep, and passionate and just so beautiful it makes you weep. I love this author, I love these books, I just love it all.
ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a honest review.

This was a new author to me, so I went in totally blind. Let me just tell you 
that I can't wait for Tyrant and I can't wait to get my hands on The Dark Light of Day!

Doe has lost her memory. She doesn't remember who she is or where she comes from. She lives in the streets with a so-called friend and every day she fights for survival.

She's so desperate that she's willing to sell her body to a biker, just to have something under her teeth and be protected.

King is a criminal. He just came out of prison after three years and now he is ready to do whatever it takes to get back what belongs to him. He doesn't need distractions. He is a man on a mission. But he can't help but be intrigued by Doe.

Both King and Doe were great characters; my heart broke for Doe during so many scenes and I couldn't help but fall for King.

There were many other great characters in this story, but the one I preferred the most was Preppy- obviously. Such a great, interesting and funny man! He made me laugh a lot..

This story warmed my heart, kept me on the edge of my seat, but also made me shed a few tears.

The writing was wonderful and it sucked me in. I was so engrossed in the story that I tried to read as soon as I had a free minute. I couldn't stop thinking about the story and when I had to stop, I was so looking forward to going back to it.

There's an aspect of this book that intrigued me so much: Doe's memory loss. I don't think I've ever read a similar book, but I loved this side of the story so much!

I definitely recommend this read. Go get this book..NOW!

Can it be August now, please?

Flawed Heart

Title: Flawed Heart
Series: House of Obsidian Book 1
Author: Bella Jewel
Publication Date: June 22, 2015
Add to Goodreads

Max & Belle's story

This isn't the man I married.
The man I married was strong, beautiful and pure.
The man I married cherished our lives together.
The man I married loved me.

This...This isn't that man.

One night. One accident. It changes everything.

I wish I could tell you the exact moment he fell out of love with me. I wish I could tell you there was hope. That I hung on. That I fought. I wish I could tell you that we fixed it. That happily every after was just out of our grips.

It wasn't. I ran, in the dead of the night, I packed my things and I left him.

Now I'm back. He's still the same man. A deadly underground fighter for the House of Obsidian. He's still dangerous. He's still broken. I still love him.

This is the part where I'm supposed to turn around and run... But I don't.


I don't really know where to start with this review. I've been looking forward to Max and Belle's story every since I read Desolation and was first introduced to the characters. But now that I've finally read their story I was a little disappointed. 

Five years ago Belle left her husband, Max, with the secret of their unborn child. Now she's back in town to take care of her dying mother and when she see's Max again she realizes she doesn't want to keep running. Their past isn't as black and white as she believes, though, and getting her husband back will not be easy.

Max interested me from when I first met his character, and I was excited to get his story. Especially after hearing about how is wife was Belle, Pippa's roommate. But then I read this and felt nothing for him. I didn't like him, but I also didn't hate him. He was supposed to be a main character and yet we barely got any of his story and most of his POV was from the then parts and told about how he first met Belle in college.

Speaking of, the flashbacks to how they met seemed completely pointless to me and didn't go with the story at all. Yes, it was giving us a glimpse into how their marriage started but it didn't flow with the story and the characters were different in the then parts than they were in the now parts. It was like two different stories trying to be pushed together. I just didn't enjoy the flashbacks at all. 

Overall, the story was only okay. The story seemed rushed and not put together very well but I did enjoy reading the last half of it. If it wasn't for the way it ended than I would have kept my 4 star rating that I was originally going to go with. It's just that, we finally found out what happened with the marriage and with Max and then it was never brought up again, even though Max still didn't seem to be okay with what his issue was. I think that the author was too worried about trying to give us details of the next books and their characters that she lost the actual story.

I still love Bella Jewel's books and am looking forward to the upcoming ones, especially Raide's, but this one just wasn't my favorite.

Shattered by You

Title: Shattered by You
Series: Tear Asunder Book 3
Author: Nashoda Rose
Publication Date: June 22, 2015

What started out as a deal quickly became a friendship that conquered monsters.

I killed, but I escaped hell.
Emotionless. Disconnected. Cold. A mannequin. It’s what I’d become in order to survive the years held in captivity. I was able to endure the abuse and devastating loss as long as I remained detached.

But he wouldn't let me.
Crisis, the bass guitarist in my brother’s rock band, Tear Asunder. He’s cocky, rude, a total man-whore. But the rock star has far more beneath the surface of his inked skin, and he’s determined to make me laugh again.
He made me a "deal", but really, it was blackmail.
His terms were simple. Until his playful honesty became the building blocks to something unexpected. Something strong enough to pull me from the eye of the storm.

Because even though I escaped years of abuse, it didn’t mean I was free.

For mature audiences only.

Shattered by You is written as a standalone, however, it is recommended you read the Tear Asunder books in order.
*Contains spoilers for "Overwhelmed by You"

I. Loved. This! The story was so sweet and dealt with serious issues but in a way that those issues didn't take control of the book, and we still saw the love between all of the characters. I can't even think of what words to use to express how much I liked Crisis aka Vincent, so you will all just have to read this story.

Haven is the twin sister of Ream, lead guitarist for Tear Asunder. Her story isn't pretty and she survived a hell that many people won't understand but she doesn't let that stop her from living. She pushes herself to have a normal life and to let go of the numbness that she has felt for too many years. She was losing the battle until Crisis, her brothers bandmate, came along and decided to become her protector. 

“You will break. One day that cool exterior you’re hiding behind will shatter. It has to. It has nowhere to go. And when it does happen, I intend to be there to help you pick up the pieces.”

This story was different than the first books in the series because, even though it still had dark elements, it didn't focus on that darkness. I couldn't get enough of Crisis and even now I just want more of this book because I never want to leave Crisis. He was so amazingly sweet in a hidden way. Yes, he had a history of being a player and using girls, but when he committed to Haven he went all in and left the girls and the playboy ways behind him.

It was really interesting to read the issues Haven had and then to see how Crisis was planning on helping her overcome them. I loved the fact that the story didn't only focus on Haven's past but actually mostly focused on Crisis and how it was for him to deal with loving someone and trying to help them when they don't always want it. That's what made me love this story so much, honestly. 

This was yet another story that I've read this month where the main characters didn't get together until late into the book. The weird part is that it didn't bother me. Haven and Crisis weren't together, officially, but there was still so much love and romance in the story and that's what made it so great! It usually really annoys me when it takes so long for the characters to get together but with Crisis and Haven it didn't stop their story from being a five star read for me and I am already looking forward to re reading this story.
