The Devils Cut J.R. Ward Release day!

Published August 1, 2017 by bookbesties

I am 100 pages from being dine with this baby(life git in the way if my blogger duties) but its still so good!

At first, the death of William Baldwine, the head of the Bradford family, was ruled a suicide. But then his eldest son and sworn enemy, Edward, came forward and confessed to what was, in fact, a murder. Now in police custody, Edward mourns not the disintegration of his family or his loss of freedom . . . but the woman he left behind. His love, Sutton Smythe, is the only person he has ever truly cared about, but as she is the CEO of the Bradford Bourbon Company’s biggest competitor, any relationship between them is impossible. And then there’s the reality of the jail time that Edward is facing. Lane Baldwine was supposed to remain in his role of playboy, forever in his big brother Edward’s shadow. Instead he has become the new head of the family and the company. Convinced that Edward is covering for someone else, Lane and his true love, Lizzie King, go on the trail of a killer—only to discover a secret that is as devastating as it is game-changing. As Lane rushes to discover the truth, and Sutton finds herself irresistibly drawn to Edward in spite of his circumstances, the lives of everyone at Easterly will never be the same again. For some, this is good; for others, it could be a tragedy beyond imagining. Only one thing is for certain: Love survives all things. Even murder.

Beauty Like the Night (The Spymaster Series) Review Post

Séverine de Cabrillac, orphan of the French revolution and sometime British intelligence agent, has tried to leave spying behind her. Now she devotes herself to investigating crimes in London and finding justice for the wrongly accused.
 
Raoul Deverney, an enigmatic half-Spaniard with enough secrets to earn even a spy’s respect, is at her door demanding help. She’s the only one who can find the killer of his long-estranged wife and rescue her missing twelve-year-old daughter.
 
Séverine reluctantly agrees to aid him, even though she knows the growing attraction between them makes it more than unwise. Their desperate search for the girl ​unleashes treason and murder. . . and offers a last chance for two strong, wounded people to find love.

This book took me a while to get into, not by any fault of the Author. You see, I have read so many historical romance books that they all start to have very similar plot lines and characters this book was very different right from the start. It took me a while to stop reading this expecting typical historical romance characters and plots and to start reading it as more of an adventure book. I love that our lead characters are an infamous spy and thief and how their individual skill sets as such play into their relationship. This book as many twists and turns and is quite an adventure to read. I absolutely can not wait to add this to my collection.

the brightest SUNSET (Review Post)

The-Brightest-Sunset-For Web

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Lies.
Words destroyed me.
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
More lies.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
“He’s gone.”
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”

Witty, emotional, heart-warming and gut-wrenching are just a small portion of the rang of emotions in this amazing story

After reading the Darkest SUNRISE, I was afraid to read the conclusion in the brightest SUNSET, but I forged on, because how could I not!?

I still don’t have my emotions in check after reading this book, and honesty I can’t really tell you about it without spoilers, it’s just one of those books you have to experience and not just read.

GrIf I thought that Charlotte killed me in the first book, then Porter Reese SLAYED me! The book picks up right where the cliffhanger of the last one left off and to say it is with a bang is an understatement! I was so mad for a good portion of the book and i guess I could understand, but come on!!

There is a riff, but Aly didn’t make us wait long before that riff was whole and the obstacles that Porter, Charlotte, Brady, Travis, and Hannah have to go through are, just…WOW! I have no idea how Aly does it, but she digs deep in your soul with her words and pulls out this emotions you didn’t even know you had for a subject you would have no idea how to handle in a million and two years, THAT’S how talented and good this book was!

I really can’t imagine thinking my life was one way, then BAM! everything I thought I knew is in question, including the love I have for someone. It was a great emotionally charged ride that I will read over and over!

The Scandal of it All by Sophie Jordan(Review Post)

Published July 25, 2017 by bookbesties

A vibrant, passionate Spanish beauty, Graciela never imagined she’d be a widow at such a young age. But when her husband, the Duke of Autenberry, dies, she finds herself alone—a Dowager Duchess with two grown stepchildren. But she’s determined to live a full, satisfying life… and decides to take a lover for a single night.

Lord Tucker has been best friends with Marcus, the new Duke of Autenberry, since they were children. He could hardly believe his eyes when the elderly duke married a woman as stunning as Graciela, but loyalty to the family that has always welcomed him—and the scandal of wanting his best friend’s stepmother—keep him from voicing his desire for the Dowager Duchess.

That is, until Graciela offers Tucker one wild night in her bed and it’s too tempting to resist. But what was supposed to be a single passionate encounter soon turns into an affair of the heart.

I really enjoyed reading this book!!  This story is full of scandal. From some of the settings to the relationships between the main characters, it is scandal after scandal and any historical romance fan will have a permanent smile as they get drawn in to find out if the scandals are exposed.   It makes me so happy to find an author who isn’t afraid to allow her characters to explore their wild sides to find their happiness.  I can not wait to read more of her books and to add this one to my collection.
