The Life You Stole by Jewel E. Ann

The Life You Stole by Jewel E. Ann

Wow!  The Life You Stole is a great conclusion to Evelyn and Ronin’s story. A page turner that provided all the answers I was looking for. With over 40 highlights and notes, my aim in this review is to avoid talking about what happened and focus on the feels! Wish me luck… This is a… Read more »

Redemption by Susan Fanetti

Redemption by Susan Fanetti

A fabulous start to the Brazen Bulls Birthright series! I was instantly drawn to Eight Ball and his world. While the story started off slow, it eased you into this slow burn romance. The pace steadily ramped up and before I knew it I had a page-turner in my hands. I got to the point… Read more »

Damaged by Layla Frost

Damaged by Layla Frost

  I just read a review that said this book should come with a warning. And I’d like to first and foremost point out that Damaged does, indeed, come with a warning. It’s right there at the end of the blurb: “this romance deals with seriously heavy topics, such as depression, anxiety, violence and self-harm.”… Read more »

Losing It All by Kati Wilde

Losing It All by Kati Wilde

We Hellfire Riders fans waited a long time for Stone’s book. Was it worth the wait?… Oh yeah. But OMG, pay attention to the trigger warnings at the beginning of the book because this has it all. Seriously, I was warned, but I wasn’t prepared.  The real world was dark enough when this came out… Read more »

Desolation Road by Christine Feehan

Desolation Road by Christine Feehan

I’ve always loved a story about people who rise above their pasts. Who become strong and face their demons and end up kicking ass and taking names, which is why I’ve continued on with this series, despite the violent flashback scenes where almost every trigger I can imagine is described.  All that to say, this… Read more »

The Hunted by Bethany-Kris

The Hunted by Bethany-Kris

My memory of watching the sweet cartoon version of the Little Mermaid didn’t prepare me for The Hunted. Catchy tunes filled my head along with images of a fun red-headed mermaid and a handsome prince. Well, there was a mermaid and a handsome prince but the soundtrack in my head that accompanied them was far… Read more »

Irish Crown by Nashoda Rose

Irish Crown by Nashoda Rose

  I’ve been a Nashoda Rose fan for years. She’s given me some unbelievably dark and angsty tales of woe that I can’t get enough of. I’m not a huge fan of angst, but these books have these barely perceptible glimmers of hope woven throughout the story that keep me not only turning the pages… Read more »

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Wow, what a page turner! Gone Girl is packed with twists and turns. It’s not your average romance story. The relationship is secondary to the mystery of Amy’s inexplicable disappearance and her husband Nick being a suspect.  Nick won me over right from the start. I’ll grant he was a self-centred jerk and far from… Read more »

Edgy Top 10 Dark Reads

  Welcome to the dark side! Nothing gets my heart pumping faster than turning the pages of a suspenseful, dark read. For me at least, these are the kind of books that lead me to staying up way past my bedtime. Keep in mind, with a dark read, it is a given the books will… Read more »

Counsellor by Celia Aaron

Counsellor by Celia Aaron

Not my idea of a hot date! A dark romance is a term that sometimes makes me shudder even though it is my preferred genre. It’s combining romance with darkness in this story that made me twitchy. If I was to be wooed by courtship, my door would be slammed shut at the first mention… Read more »
