📝REVIEW📝: Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco ~🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟~ Genre: #YA #Fantasy #Historical ~Available Now!~

Synopsis:

Two sisters.

One brutal murder.

A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…

And an intoxicating romance.

Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to find her sister’s killer and to seek vengeance at any cost-even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.

Then Emilia meets Wrath, one of the Wicked-princes of Hell she has been warned against in tales since she was a child. Wrath claims to be on Emilia’s side, tasked by his master with solving the series of women’s murders on the island. But when it comes to the Wicked, nothing is as it seems…

My Review:

This might just be my favorite book of all time.

Emilia and her sister Vittoria are twin witches living in Palermo, Sicily. Life is all fun and games until Vittoria turns up brutally murdered with her heart cut out. Turns out someone has been killing witches. But why? Emilia intends to find out. She has turned vengeful after the lost of her sister and she will stop at nothing until she finds the killer and makes them pay. So her brilliant plan includes summoning one of the seven princes of Hell, Wrath, and binding him to her so he is forced to help her solve the mystery. They are mortal enemies but Emilia will cross any line for revenge.

The best way to describe this book was deliciously wicked. I love morally gray characters and this book is full of them. First of all there is Wrath who is literally a prince of Hell so his personality should obviously be evil. But surprisingly he is a lot more well mannered and tolerable than one would think. Then there is Emilia who starts off as a really sweet white witch but slowly becomes twisted by grief and vengeance. Emilia is cunning but still tries to keep to her morals…when she remembers them. I loved both of these main characters so much because they have such an interesting dynamic. They really don’t like each other but for some reason they feel some pull to each other. Wrath will do just about anything to get what he wants and Emilia will do just about anything to find her sister’s killer. Truly a match made in Hell.

There really isn’t too much romance in this book which I loved. The description makes it seem like this book is more of a romance but it really isn’t. This is the story about a girl who lost her twin sister and wants nothing more than to make the murderer pay. Romance is the last thing on her mind. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t some stirrings between certain characters. It was the perfect amount of romance. Not that much but just enough to want more of it.

This book leaves you with a lot of questions but this is a series so that shouldn’t be an issue. I’ll get my answers eventually. My only critique is that I wish we were told more information and not as kept in the dark. It makes sense though because we follow Emilia who is very much kept in the dark about everything from everyone.

I adored the atmosphere of this book. As a Sicilian (American) named Emily who’s family hails from Palermo and always wished she could be a witch you can imagine how much I connected to this book. It was very nostalgic of my culture and it was almost like I could live out a life I always wanted. Well maybe minus the whole summoning demons thing. The food descriptions were incredible and this book made me so hungry. I want nothing more than to go to Sicily right now

I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book if you are on the fence about checking it out. It’s definitely worth it.

Excerpt
I navigate the bumpy gravel drive in my heels and rolling luggage until a
wheel locks up. I rock the bag side to side, searching for the issue. “Where
are you?”
“Let me help you with that.” I look toward the deep voice and I’m met
with a smile. My heart skips a little and I’m stunned.
“Uh… I think it’s a rock.” I say without drooling.
He picks up the sixty-pound bag without issue, moving it to the sidewalk.
I open my mouth to thank him when I see all eyes on us. I nervously chuckle.
“I’ll take it from here. I don’t want you to lose your place in line.”
“I’m already seated. I saw you struggling and thought I’d lend a hand.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“Ma’am?” I laugh and he stammers a little. “I’m much to young to be
addressed as ma’am, don’t you think?”
“It’s how my mother raised me.” He flashes a trillion-dollar smile that’s
derives straight from the steamy depths of hell because it’s downright sinful.
The man is a work of art.
Powerful jaw. Broad shoulders. Beneath that shirt is a chiseled body, I’m
sure. I swallow around the stone in my throat as he hunkers closer and examines
the wheels on my bag.
“Here’s the issue.”
I blink, and his face is close. Super close. I’m finding it hard to
breathe and when I do, I inhale a long drag of temptation.
Can a man smell yummy? Yes.
Better than the scent of homemade southern food lingering in the air?
Absolutely.
God, yes.
“Everything all right?” A crease of concern bunches between his dark
brown eyes.
“Uh…”
My lungs empty as I take a quick inventory of the man in front of me. A
man rendering me speechless in the right way. This moment is going down in the
books. But in my defense, I’m delusional and sleep deprived. That’s what it is.
I lay a hand over my galloping heart, fighting to string together a response.
I inhale and… oh hell, that damn delicious scent tickles my nose, and the
sensation travels through my body, awakening a whisper of attraction. I groan.
Stop breathing, Jayda. Just stop breathing. I chastise myself the moment
I lock eyes with him.
“Yeah, I…” I shake to quiet the voices in my head. “Long morning of
travel.”
I can’t look away, and neither does he. I came to Southern Soul to meet
my best friend, Catrina. I figured staying with her for the week would makeup
for Brett ditching me.
Damn, Texas has some fine ass men. The masterpiece before me has a beard
and full eyebrows. He’s groomed, but all man. His golden peanut butter
complexion reminds me of my Reesie Piecie. And with that thought comes the
thorn in my side, Brett.
“Huh, thanks. I got it. I appreciate your help.” I stand and he moves
with me until he’s towering over me.
And he’s tall. I almost groan again, but I hold it in. It’s time for me
to find Catrina. Unlike my boyfriend, I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a
cheater. The moment I want someone more than what I have, I’m out. At least,
that was before I had Reese. Now, I stay because… staying’s the right thing to
do.
“My pleasure. Name’s Kamal Montgomery. And you are?” He extends a hand.
“Jayda Dallas.” I take his hand and immediately regret it. A trail of
heat flows from him to me in a timeless extension of energy, paralyzing me.
“Huh, someone’s waiting for me. Thanks again.”
I retract my hand, but not before he flips it over. The perfect thick
brow of his arches in an unspoken question. I slip my hand from the warmth of
his. But the heat of his touch lingers.
I rub my hand along my skirt, trying to erase the memory as I reclaim the
handle of my bag and start rolling towards the front of the line.
“Hey, Jayda!” Catrina sings, wrapping me in a sisterfriend hug as we
squeal like kids. When we finally step back, she takes possession of my bag.
Then she stares at the man now standing beside us. “Kamal.”
Kamal nods, “Enjoy your meal, Jayda.” Then he disappears.

Title: Blood Ties
Series: The Abiding Series Book 2
Author: B.C. Morin
Genre: Paranormal Romance Suspense
Release Date: August 21, 2020
Can you ever truly escape your past?
 
B.C. Morin returns to her world of vampires, werewolves, nephilim, and the carefully created hybrids who are now fighting to keep the crumbling peace between the species.
 
“The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.” ~Unknown
 
Especially if the past made you the rare immortal hybrid you are today.
Emeline Huntley is a survivor. A reluctant immortal who has lived through losing her family, being experimented on, wearing a clockwork collar that could behead her at any moment, and being under the control of one of the most ruthless men she has ever had the displeasure to know. Now, she and her lethal and intoxicating husband Alexander, also a hybrid have become peace-keepers. If you consider vigilante mercenaries for hire, peace-keepers, that is.
Emeline and Alexander have been thrust into the center of a surge of murders that threatens the already fragile state of affairs between vampires and werewolves. When a hooded figure targets them at home in the States and they run out of answers here, Emeline and Alexander have to go home to England. Fighting ghosts of the past as much as the enemies of the present, they find that this is far more than a species war. Someone is playing a deadly game and Emeline and Alexander are in their way.
Enemies are gaining ground as danger closes in on the couple and the past they have tried so hard to avoid rushes back. Calling on the very vampire and werewolf they were created from, Alexander and Emeline try to get to the bottom of it all and stop the mysterious figure before more lives are taken. But as the dead ends keep piling up, time is running out…

His princess quote 3 (1)

Synopsis:

“Got a name, my princess?”

When Joelle Fielding attends a function for Chicago’s society elites, she’s stunned to find herself swept off her feet by a man who believes that not only is she a princess, but that she’s HIS princess. Falling in love at first sight isn’t a part of her career-oriented life goals, but with the sexy Gus Bloch insisting she’s meant for him, those life goals might be changing.

By fourteen, Gus had been on his own on the Southside’s mean streets. When life had been at its bleakest, he’d dreamed of his future and the kind of woman he would someday share his life with. One look at Joelle, and he knows he’s finally found her. Nothing will stop him from convincing her that he’s the man for her—not even Joelle herself.

Joelle has never wanted anyone like she wants Gus, but all too soon insta-love and the demands of reality find themselves on a collision course. Is Gus really the man for her when he’s forced to see she’s no one’s princess?

A slow smile curled his mouth, and to Joelle’s surprise she found she couldn’t look away from the two perfect dimples that appeared in his lean, clean-shaven cheeks. Had there ever been a more perfectly symmetrical face, with sculpted cheekbones, squared-off jaw and, heaven above, dimples? The more she saw of him, the more she realized that perfection could exist. “The moment I saw you, everything about you became my business.”
“Oh, really?” Wildly her heart bounced around in her chest like one of those bouncy balls she’d loved as a child. “How do you figure that?”
“It’s pretty simple.” He shifted a shoulder, like freaking Atlas shrugging. “I saw you standing there, and something inside me clicked into place. I’m not fighting that, and neither should you. It won’t do you any good.”
“My goodness.” It took all her strength not to pearl-clutch, but damn, it was hard. This man came on like a freight train, and for a wayward moment she could only wonder what he was like in bed… “I think there’s a song like that.”
“I guess this could be called an enchanted evening, now that I think about it. It’s not every day you meet the one that stops you in your tracks and makes you think of things like forever.”
Okay, pearl-clutching was a necessity when a man said things like that. “Anyone ever tell you that you have a tendency to overwhelm?”
“Not my fault. I’ve lost one helluva lot of time with you, so I need to catch up.”
“Catch up? We just met.”
“Yeah, but I’ve been looking for you my whole damn life. Got a shit-ton of catching up to do.”

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

His Princess (A novella from the world of House of Payne)His Princess by Stacy Gail

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First thing I need to say…..If you don’t like instalove/lust, and an alpha hero who can be a huge a**hole, then this book isn’t for you. When I accepted this book for review, the author warned me there would be a moment where I would want to strangle Gus and she was so right, lol. He is intense and takes cocky and arrogant to the extreme. Joelle, on the other hand, was perfect. She is independent and will always fight for what is right. There were moments I was so proud of her. That said, after Gus realized his mistake, he was all in trying to fix it. I love a groveling hero.

I won’t go into details as this book is short. I did enjoy it; the author writes well and kept me engaged. I will also say, this is only the first for me; I will definitely read more from this author. Stacy Gail was a first time read and I am happy to say I look forward to more of her titles. I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole on Goodreads while stalking her House of Payne series. There are so many books, I’ll just have to start from the beginning.

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

#NewRelease ~ “Unexpected Expectations” (425 Madison Series) Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rags To RIches Romance, by Author Lauren Helms is Available Now! ~ @LaurenEHelms

What started as a $10 raffle ticket, turned into a vacation in Vegas and a whole lot of expectations that neither of them saw coming. For Kevin and Lucy, it was just supposed to be a little fun but when they are served with a large dose of luck, everything suddenly becomes unexpected. Readers will fall in love with this rags to riches romance from Lauren Helms. The 425 Madison series is back with season three and Unexpected Expectations is now live!

Kevin

With everyone around me settling down, I’m happy to continue living my life single and carefree.

That is unless I can convince the concierge, Lucy Wilson at 425 Madison to finally take me up on that offer to go out on a date.

She’s beautiful, friendly, and her compassion for each and every one of the residents is admirable. Something tells me that she doesn’t see herself that way at all though.

This is why I’ve made it my mission to break her out of her overly cautious shell starting with a lucky penny and a $10 raffle ticket.

It was all supposed to be a little fun but when a large dose of lucky graces us, everything suddenly becomes unexpected.

Lucy

He thinks I don’t see him, but I do. Oh yes, I’ve been aware of the all too good looking Kevin Harper for quite some time now.

The thing is, I’m not sure that we have enough in common and I sure don’t have the free time for a social life between my job and school. Dating? That’s pretty far down on the list of things I’d like to check off – not by choice.

That is until Kevin convinces me that a little fun is good for the soul.

What started as a $10 raffle ticket turned into a vacation in Vegas and a whole lot of expectations that neither of us saw coming.

I always believed in fairy tales, but I wonder if what we have is too good to be true. I can only hope that it’s true what they say…

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

Excerpt

Copyright @ Lauren Helms 2020

My fingers brush the smooth copper coin reminding me that I have a second mission to complete. I pinch the coin between my fingers and walk toward the concierge desk. Just like I hoped she would, there stands one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. Standing around 5’4, the golden-haired beauty has curves in all the right places. She’s soft around the edges, but I can tell by the way her uniform fits her body that she’s got a sexy as fuck body underneath. Today, her thick locks are pulled low in the back, but her waves fall over her shoulder. I’d love to give that hair a yank in the throes of passion. Shit, I’d love to do a lot of things to this girl.

I’ve flirted with Lucy for a while now, and she’s one of my favorite parts of visiting the building. I’m not a shy man, and I enjoy a good romp between the sheets, but Lucy, I could tell right off the bat is the kinda girl you don’t have meaningless romps with. Nah. She’s a take-home-to-your-momma kind of girl.

My mom would love her.

Maybe, one of these days I’ll ask her out. Heck, I don’t even know if she has a boyfriend or not. It’s never stopped me from flirting, but flirting is harmless. The lady seems damn good at her job, maybe she is just that good at dealing with flirts like me every day.

I come to a stop in front of her, leaning my arm on the desk.

“Heya, Lucy. Seen any tangerine trees or marmalade skies lately?” The Beatles reference earns me a stunning smile.

“Hi Kevin, how are you today?”

I give her my sexiest smirk. “I’m better now that I’m seeing your gorgeous face.” My words hit their mark, and Lucy’s cheeks turn a sexy shade of pink.

“Okay, Mr. Charmer.” She giggles a bit. I always feel like an accomplished mother fucker when I get a girl to giggle. Especially a girl like Lucy, she’s not a giggler. Which is something I dig about her. Besides her looks, she seems to be whip-smart and down to Earth. Most likely, she doesn’t come from money, or why would she be working this gig? She has to deal with the rich and spoiled day in and day out, and she doesn’t lose her cool. I’ve seen her in action, and I’ve seen the way some of the residents treat her. I’ve had to bite my tongue a few times. As Jake has reminded me, this place is private property, I can be banned from the building.

I snap my finger, pretending to recall something important. “I actually have a gift for you.”

Two dainty eyebrows arch in surprise as I lift the penny between my thumb and forefinger.

“A penny?” Her tone is full of amusement.

“Yup. I found a penny outside the building. You know what they say, “If you find a penny, pick it up, if it’s heads, you’ll have good luck.” I smirk as I finish the saying. Pleased with the soft smile that plays at her kissable lips.

“You know, I’ve never told anyone this before…” She leans toward me and lowers her voice as if she doesn’t want anyone to hear. “When I see a penny on the ground, if I notice its tails up, I lean down and flip it over. Hopefully, I can help someone else find a little good luck.”

My heart slams against my chest. Her words nearly cause me to stumble. Who is this woman? She takes the time to flip over a penny just in case the next person who comes along can find a lucky penny? Why does hearing this nearly shatter my charming, nothing gets to me-exterior?

Why?

Because I do the exact same thing.

I clear my throat.

“Don’t worry, Lucy girl, your secret is safe with me.” I extend my hand toward her, and she holds out her hand. I carefully place the penny in her open palm and slowly drag my fingers across her bare hand. I’m expecting the sizzle from our touch, but I don’t miss Lucy’s reaction to our chemistry when I hear her tiny intake of breath.

She closes her hand around the lucky penny and pulls her fist in toward her chest, holding it to her heart.

My life has sucked for as far back as I can remember. My folks didn’t want me so I was thrown into foster care. Let me just say lots of fun. NOT. 
 
Then one day, my life took a dramatic change. My circumstances improved greatly. I met The Grimm Wolves MC and they took me under their wing. I became not only a prospect but also part of their brotherhood. 
 
Now I’ve let my brothers down not once, but twice, in less than a month. What if I don’t belong with the club? Feeling the weight of life, how can I prove to the only family I have ever had that I’m worth the trouble? Or maybe the truth is I’m not reliable and useful after all? It all depends on how much of my failure The Grimm Wolves MC are willing to put up with by one of their newest prospects.

#NewRelease ~ “My Perfect Girl” by Author: Meghana Sarathy, Genre: Contemporary Romance, Release Date: August 18, 2020, is Available Now! ~ #MeghanaSarathyAuthor @EJBookPromos


Title: My Perfect Girl
Author: Meghana Sarathy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2020
My Perfect Girl,

 

 
I need you by my side, now more than ever. I’m growing weak with every passing day, and my control is slipping. If I were as stubborn as before, no matter how badly I wanted to, I wouldn’t allow you to come to me as a reprieve I desperately sought. I would be content with just hearing stories of your success and watching you on TV. Remember what I had told you the first time we met? I would give you flight and watch you soar high. I would never become the wings that would one fine day become the dead weights to bring you down. I did live up to my words.
 
You’ve always wished to hear these words from me but I never gave them to you, afraid that you would never leave me. It’s time you learn the truth about my feelings. We’ve known each other for twenty years now but have spent more time apart than together. Staying away from you, meeting time and again only to walk away on different paths? It hurt more than I could ever put in words. My feelings for you can’t be encompassed in the mere four letter word. It transcends time and space. I could never let my feelings for you die, so I chose to set you free to build your life without me in it. Though I couldn’t always be with you, I’m glad that I was there to save you when you needed me the most. Despite us not being together, remember that our lives will always be intertwined, bonded by our unique love. You’ll forever be my perfect girl.
 
I think it’s time for us to meet again. Yet, I’m hesitating to send you this letter. It’ll just cause you more heartbreak, when all I want is to see you happy. 
 
For the first and last time, I’ll leave this decision to fate. Even without this letter, I know you’ll come for me.
 
Yours truly,
Ayden
 
My Perfect Girl is a standalone contemporary romance. It’s an emotional and angst filled story of two star crossed lovers. It also deals with heavy subject matters and sexual content. Recommended for readers who are 18+.

“I owe you an explanation,” he started and the bird of hope started flapping its wings rapidly. “And yet, testing your responses is fun. So, maybe I’ll make you wait a little more for it.” I wasn’t particularly pleased hearing that. I was enticing enough for him to put me through his ‘tests,’ but I was unsure of whether my heart could take it. And yet, I met his challenge head-on. 

“What do these tests entail?” I asked unsurely. Without saying another word, he took a step closer. In such proximity, his magnificent aura diminished my presence. Despite being just an inch away, he felt out of my grasp. He was at a level that would probably take me years to reach. He would have surely left by then. Why would he wait?

“Pursuit of answers is what spoils the fun,” he whispered. “The secret of enjoying life is simple. Don’t go searching for answers, the kind of choice you make when reacting to situations forges into answers. It’s not right or wrong. They are simply yours and that’s more than enough. Get it?” This is what I meant. He was on another plane altogether. But even as I wrapped my head around his words, my thoughts aligning with his thinking, I caught a glimpse of a bridge that would take me to his plane or horizon. The excited and love-struck part of me was all ready to jump on that bridge unsure of what it was even made of. Even if it turned out to be a hanging bridge, I wouldn’t hesitate. But the logical part of me won out and I just stood gazing up at him, realizing that the wait to crossover would be a very long one indeed.
