The darkest part of it. 
A part I never show anyone.
From the moment we met, I wanted to show her all my scars, the need I hide inside.
Joanna. 
The woman who wears long sleeve shirts on a hundred-degree day.

AUTHOR BIO
K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind
of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and
as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women
they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

In a time of war even love can change sides.
 
A young Civil Engineer student travels to Italy to complete her studies at a prestigious university. Instead, she crosses paths with Tristan Moretti, a man whose business dealings dwell deep within the underworld—a world she never thought she’d be a part of.
 
But Tristan becomes a force Kennedy can’t ignore. A man whose touch she can’t get enough of. She knows it’s dangerous. She knows falling for Tristan will lead to a lifetime of consequences. Still, she can’t stay away.
 
Tristan has taken his father’s place as head of the Moretti Family—a role he’s been preparing for his whole life. He knows the kind of darkness that lurks within the shadows of his world, how it corrupts innocence, and ruins lives.
 
But once he realizes Kennedy is the only woman he’ll ever want, nothing can stop him from having her. He’s determined to rule with her at his side and vows to protect her no matter the cost.
 
As a lethal power slithers its way into their world and shakes the very foundation of the Moretti family, Tristan and Kennedy find themselves at the edge of survival where a decision must be made.
 
Do they stand together and fight…or will they be torn apart and fight each other?

Author’s Note: The Sekten Series is a dark romance series that needs to be read in order. It is intended for mature audiences since there is a lot of graphic content, and it might not be suitable for you if you are easily triggered. Some books will be darker than others, but all are triggering none the less. This is a dark world, so read at your own discretion.
Claudia lives in the Chicagoland suburbs, and when she’s not busy chasing after her adorable little spawn, she’s fighting with the characters in her head. After not being able to keep up with them, she decided enough was enough and wrote her first novel. C. Lymari writes both sweet and dark romances that will give you all the feels. Her other talents include binge watching shows on Netflix and eating all kinds of chips.

A sweet and sassy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson!

Captain Ava Capp has been flying from her past for a decade. She’d much rather leave it, and her home state, behind forever. But when she finds herself back in Minnesota, against her better judgment, everything goes sideways in a way she never expected it to.

M.E. Dr. Tom Baker has never forgotten Ava and the cold case she ran away from. When she shows up unexpectedly in town, in spite of himself, sparks fly. Which is terrible because he can’t stop his growing attraction to her. Can these two Type-A’s let their guards down and work together to put Ava’s tragic past behind her for good? And keep their hands off each other at the same time?

My Review:  3.5 Stars

Truth, Lies, and Second DatesTruth, Lies, and Second Dates by MaryJanice Davidson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars…
I was actually torn between 3 & 3.5 stars for this rating. I ended up generously awarding the latter. Truth, Lies and Second Dates had the potential to be a five star read for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it, didn’t connect nor did I feel the writing was smooth. The pace was slow in my opinion. At least the first half of the book felt that way. This book is 320 pages but it felt like much more.

From the synopsis, I inferred the story to be different from what it was. The premise was explained well enough but the execution didn’t work for me. To be honest, I expected a darker tone. Ava, one of the main characters, was too sarcastic for me to take seriously; and her humor made me cringe during certain conversations. There is a time and a place for everything. This author didn’t feel that way. As a result, I wasn’t laughing all the time. The dialogue between characters was okay, but at times I had to re-read paragraphs because I could not follow along. Several times, I wondered if I missed some vital information because too many aspects didn’t make sense. Another aspect that interrupted my reading flow was the inserts of definitions at the end of each chapter and way too many parenthesis throughout the text. Also, the sudden switches in POV were another issue I had with flow. This book was very busy.

At some point after 30%, I ignored the monotony and decided if I wanted to like this book at all, I would view this story as a murder mystery and not a romantic comedy, as well as ignore the numerous onslaught of tropes. While the romance aspect ended up being cute, I didn’t feel this book was romance. That’s ok, though because I knew going in that the author was integrating many tropes; unfortunately that just didn’t work for me. But thankfully, one stood out so I focused on that. The “who done it” aspect. And to my delight and surprise, I didn’t see the end coming. Nor was I able to guess the murderer until that moment of resolution. I warn you now, there is no foreshadowing in this book. Situations just spontaneously arise. That said, regarding the climax, or my view on it, it was rushed. I had to re-read part of that final scene a few times.

To sum this review up, I didn’t hate the book. While there were parts of the writing I didn’t connect with, there were a few that I delighted in. This author took the dark undertone from the main focus and wrote characters with intellect, witticism, flaws, outrageousness and created an original story. Truth, Lies, and Second Dates, was most definitely something I have never read before. Nor have I read this author before. You cannot take this book seriously.

I want to close this review with one thought. If you are researching this book, deciding if you will read it, don’t look too deeply into the reviews. There are many mixed feelings about this book. Some loved it, some hated it and like me, some thought is was okay. We all have different preferences when we chose a book and while this book didn’t resonate with me in a fully posiitve light, you may love it.

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

About the series:
It all started with a note, just a simple note hand written by a woman I didn’t know, never even met. But in that note is perhaps every answer to every question I’ve ever had in my life. And because of that note, I look for her, but find him. I’m drawn to his passion, his talent, a darkness in him that somehow becomes my light, my life. Kace August is rich, powerful, a rockstar of violins, a man who is all tattoos, leather, good looks and talent. He has a wickedly sweet ability to play the violin, seducing audiences worldwide. Now, he’s seducing me. I know he has secrets. I don’t care. Because you see, I have secrets, too.

I’m not Aria Alard, as he believes. I’m Aria Stradivari, daughter to Alessandro Stradivari, a musician born from the same blood as the man who created the famous Stradivarius violin. I am as rare as the mere 650 instruments my ancestors created. Instruments worth millions. 650 masterpieces, the brilliance unmatched. 650 reasons to kill. 650 reasons to hide. One reason not to: him.

Dr. Neil
Walker, M.D., M.F.T, Ph. D.
I’m not
your average therapist. As the founder of Imperium Security—the cover for my
mercenary team—I’ve dedicated my entire life to helping heal those who’ve had
their power unwillingly taken from them and avenging the ones who didn’t
survive.
A decade after
creating the perfect team, I’ve now watched as every one of my brothers-in-arms
has met and married their perfect match, the special women who were meant for
them—because not just any woman is cut out to be the wife of a mercenary. And
it was through one of these matches I finally met The One, the woman of
my dreams, the one I’ve sworn to help heal and protect above all others.

Quill, Makeup Artist
It was only
supposed to be for the weekend, but then all hell broke loose, and I went from
just staying with Doc so my sister could have a worry-free romantic getaway
with her honey, to living with him for an entire year.
Oh,
boo-hoo, poor me, trapped in this amazing, state-of-the-art mansion with a dog
who loves the hell out of me. And not trapped because Neil won’t let me go.
Heavens, no. Neil is dreamy and a real-life hero, and he tries everything to
help me step foot back into the world. It’s a self-imposed prison, because
nothing good ever came of me being out in the wild.
I made a
promise nearly a decade ago that I’d never let myself fall in love again. Love
brought pain, both emotional and physical, and the last time I was in love, I
barely escaped with my life. But I’m finding it harder to resist this magnetism
between us, especially when he makes it perfectly clear he wants me and only
me.
No, Doc
isn’t your average therapist.
So is he
the one man who can not only save me from my past, but also heal my heart?

Excerpt
“Wanna play a game, Doc?” I ask in a creepy voice, mimicking
the scary little fucker on the trike in the Saw movies.
“I never realized how much like Seth you are until today,”
he replies instead, and a lazy smile pulls at my lips.
“My sister said since the day she met him that he’s like me
but with a penis. I chose to ignore the fact that she then proceeded to have
sex with that penis. I have enough psychologic damage to wonder why my sister
fell in love with a man who reminds her of me,” I joke, and he shakes his head
at that.
“Then I’ll choose to ignore the fact that I fell in love
with a woman who reminds me of him with a vagina,” he replies, and I wrinkle my
nose.
“Ew.”
“Right?”
“No, I mean the vagina part. Don’t call it that.” I stick
out my tongue.
“Are you twelve, goddess? I’m a medical professional,” he
points out.
“You’re a head doctor. Not a vagina doctor,” I argue,
sneering the word.
He lifts a brow. “You’d be amazed how much the mind is
affected by what’s between one’s legs, Ms. Quill.”
Author Bio
KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she
picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went
to college to become a writer, but then married her very own alpha and had
babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom
who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family
and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth,
her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a full-time
editor. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many
author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series,
The Blogger Diaries, her own real-life romance. She’s now published more than
fifteen stories in many different genres of romance.
