Thirteen
years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson
she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all
the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.
And then I
disappeared.
But it
wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what
that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you
what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.
My point
is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did
hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met
Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.
It’s been
thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.
But it’s
kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.
*****
Bossy
Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who
botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars,
private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after
that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

 

Excerpt
EMMA
“What are you doing?” I ask.
“What’s it look like?”
“It looks like you’re parking at a Tastee-Freez.”
“Nothing gets by you, does it, Emma?”
“Why are you taking me to a Tastee-Freez?”
“Usually people come here for ice cream.”
I just blink at him.
“You don’t like ice cream?”
“Everyone likes ice cream.”
“Exactly,” he says, grinning like a foolish, charming bastard. Which
makes no sense at all, but wow. I’d forgotten about that smile and how
disarming it is. He looks at me. “Come on,” he says. “It’s a date, right? You
paid ten million dollars for this date and now you’re going to complain when I
do something date-y?”
This wasn’t part of the plan. The plan was:
Buy him.
Drive up to his lake house.
Drug him.
Wait for the girls to show up.
Take him over to our lake house.
Tie him up.
Make him regret all his asshole decisions thirteen years ago.
Probably gloat too. Little bit of, “Look at me, so rich and powerful now.
And you dumped me, you dumbass. But oh, hey. I’m too good for you now. You
could’ve had all this and now you’ve got nothing. Sucks to be you.”
Which is all pretty childish because he’s Jesse Boston. He could get any
girl he wants. Just look at how they fell all over him tonight at the auction.
Ten. Million. Fucking. Dollars.
I feel sick. Literally, I feel sick. It’s not that we can’t afford the
ten mil. It’s just… that was not the plan. This asshole isn’t worth ten
million. What the hell were all those women thinking?
And us. What the hell were we thinking? This is all Hannah’s fault. I’m
gonna kill her later.
No revenge plan is worth ten million dollars.
And now he wants to have ice cream with me.
Uggggh.
“So?” Jesse says.
“Hmm?”
“Are we gonna get out of the car? Or are we going to sit here all night?”
“I’m not really in the mood for ice cream,” I say.
He grins at me again. Oh. God. Why is he so damn hot? It’s not fair.
“See, that’s the best part about ice cream. You don’t have to be in the mood
for it. In fact, eating it when you’re not in the mood is the best part. Because
it puts you in the mood.”
And then he does one of those little eyebrow waggles.
I squint at him. “Are you coming on to me?”
“What?”
“Was that innuendo?”
He frowns. “What the fuck are you talking about?”
I point to his forehead. “You waggled at me when you said ice cream puts
you in the mood.”
“I didn’t waggle at you.”
I huff. “Dude, you totally did.”
“OK, whatever. If you say I did, then I did. But no. It wasn’t innuendo.
Ice cream is like… that’s just what people eat when they’re stressed, ya know?”
I just stare at him.
“God, for a woman who paid ten million dollars for me, you sure are a
tough crowd.”
“I know how much I paid for you,” I snap. “Stop reminding me.”
“OK,” he says, holding up a hand. “Would you like me to take you home?
Should we just… end this?”
I huff. “I paid ten million dollars for you. I’m getting my date.”
He stares at me. No. He glares at me. “Then get your fucking ass
out of my car and order a motherfucking ice cream.”
And then he gets out, not even waiting for me. Just gets out, slams the
door, and walks up to the Tastee-Freez and gets in line.
“Rude,” I mumble.

Blurb
GwenLately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the
job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things
started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I
found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage.
To the only man, I’ve ever loved.

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that
our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I
know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.
Harrison

Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already
made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s
what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me.
She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized, that I would do anything to change the past. I
have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We
never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to
give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that, it’s not
over.

Title: Inexorable
Series: Cavalieri Della Morte Series
Author: Jo-Anne Joseph
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 20, 2019
They call me a God, Demon, Monster,
Depends on which side of me they’ve faced.
I’m cold, with an insatiable thirst for blood, lust, and money.
If you’ve got my attention,
You’re either next on my list, or about to slip into my sheets.
I’m Arthur Calthorpe, leader of the Tabella Della Morte.
I don’t trust, I own.
I don’t love, I desire.
I don’t ask, I take.
And I want Gaia.
The silver haired tyrant is a ruthless criminal,
The first time I saw him was in my mother’s bed,
But the monster has set his sights on me.
He’s relentless, and he’s found my Achilles heel.
When he offers me a bargain, I’m hard-pressed to refuse.
What lengths am I willing to go to be free of him, and how far will he go to stop me?
The trouble is those eyes and the fact that I want to know the story behind them.

“…This is a perfect end to this series, it has twists and turns, harrowing scenes that they have endured throughout their lives and moments of reflection and regret that humanised the monsters. Happiness is fleeting unless you work at it and pursue it and Arthur finds his happy in others pain. He is sinister and brutal and yet beautifully controlled and precise with each movement he makes against his enemies. …” – Obsessed by Books

About the Author:
A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.
After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.
The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Devilry (King University #2)Devilry by Marley Valentine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I immensely loved this story. Everything about it touched my heart. Devilry was very well written and you can tell the author put her heart and soul into every word. While there are plenty of scorching moments, I found the relationship developing between Elijah and Cole most prominent in the story. do read quite a bit of MM romance. That said having different authors perspectives on this genre I know what I like, I know what I enjoy reading. And this book had all the feels I look for in that perfect read. In addition I want to say that this story was very believable. Some of the emotional aspects broke my heart, but there were so many moments that made me smile and swoon. Cole was the older in the relationship however Elijah was very mature. There were times where if I didn’t know better I would say Elijah was the older in the relationship.

Another great enjoyment of this book for me was all the secondary characters. They really all were an integral part of the book. In fact, the author has me curious if there will be any spin-off novels coming.

This is not the first book I have read by this author. I’ve enjoyed most every book I read by her. She is a talented storyteller. I also want to say that whether or not you are a fan of this genre, You’ll enjoy it regardless. It’s deep, angsty, emotional and the happily-ever-after was perfect. Don’t let me forget to mention the epilogue was incredible too. This was the second book in the King’s University series. I can’t wait to read the third! I recommend this as a must read especially if you love a book that will pull at your heartstrings.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it 🙂
