Review: INTENSITY (Chronicles of Nick) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

IMG_9765

INTENSITY (Chronicles of Nick Book 8) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Genre: Sci Fi & Fantasy, Teens & YA

Publication Date: September 5, 2017

IMG_3306

IMG_9760It’s a demon-eat-demon world for Nick Gautier. Just when he thinks he’s finally gotten a handle on how not to take over the world and destroy it, Death returns with an all-star cast that is determined to end the Malachai reign and lineage forever. Worse? Death and War have found the one, true enemy Nick can’t find, and even if he did, it’s one he could never bring himself to banish or kill.

Now framed for murders he hasn’t committed, and surrounded by new friends who might be turncoats, Nick is learning fast how his father went down in flames.

The heat in New Orleans is rising fast, and Nick’s threat-level has gone into a whole new level of intensity. He’s learning fast that when War and Death decide to battle, they don’t take prisoners. They don’t negotiate. And they’re both immune to his biting sarcasm and Cajun charm. To win this, he will have to embrace a new set of powers, but one wrong step, and he will belong to the side of Darkness, forever.

INTENSITY is the perfect conclusion to an epic series. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Chronicles of Nick series is a Young Adult series featuring Nick who is in her Dark-Hunter Series. I don’t usually pick up YA books, but this is a great series for teens as well as adults and there are a lot of characters from the Dark-Hunter series in the Chronicles of Nick series so I highly recommend reading it if you’re a Dark-Hunter  fan. Nick is one of my favorite characters in Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series and the Chronicles of Nick tells his story up to the beginning of his life shown in the Dark-Hunter series. It’s emotional, funny, and packed full of action and suspense. I loved this series and can’t wait for Nick’s adult book in the Dark-Hunter series and the spin-off series, Shadows of Fire, that I think will pick up where INTENSITY ended. Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master storyteller and I’m always get swept up in the worlds she creates when I pick up her books. I love them!

INFORMATION BELOW IS FROM SHERRILYN KENYON’S WEBSITE HERE

Shadows of Fire™

#1 New York Times and international bestselling saga continues…

The world of the Dark-Hunters® is unlike anything you’ve every seen before. It’s dark. It’s gritty. It’s dangerous…

And it’s a whole lot of unexpected action and snarky comebacks.

My name is Cyprian Malachai and I should have never been born. I know it. My mother knows it and most of all, my father, the Ambrose Malachai is more than aware of it. Every creature under the sun is out to end me.

But I don’t go down easy. Anyone who’s ever fought a Malachai knows that fact.

My father thinks that he’s heard the last of me . . .

He hasn’t. Our war is only on an interlude. It’s about to heat up and I have a massive grudge to settle. One that is far from over . . .

~*~*~*~

**Please note that Shadows of Fire is a four book continuation of the Chronicles of Nick®, and is a Young Adult spin-off series from the Dark-Hunter® novels. If you’d like to read the ones with more adult content, they are listed under the Dark-Hunter series section.
The manga listed is for ages 14 and up.

~*~*~*~

**Note to Dark-Hunter fans

The Chronicles of Nick *is* Nick’s real and true past. There is a huge surprise (several actually) in the series that I don’t want to spoil, but when you read them, everything you think is an inconsistency will make perfect sense to you. More than that, you will understand exactly why Nick is the way he is and why he continues to hate Acheron the way he does.

Remember the one promise that I try to keep in every book: Just when you think you know the truth about a character or event, you find out that things are seldom what they seem. Nick is one of those characters. There’s a lot more to our little Cajun than what you’ve seen to date.

There are many, many secrets you’ll learn about a lot of characters, including Cherise and especially Jaden and Jared. Just hold on… you ain’t seen nothing yet 🙂
There are 8 books in the Nick Chronicles.

  1. Infinity
  2. Invincible
  3. Infamous
  4. Inferno
  5. Illusion
  6. Instinct
  7. Invision
  8. Intensity

There are 4 books in the Shadows of Fire series:

  1. Heart of Venom
  2. Will of Iron
  3. Fist of Fire
  4. Eye of Stone

Then there will have a separate trilogy of adult books to finish off the story arc.

==========================================
**Please note that the books listed under series are in their correct reading order even though they don’t have to be read that way. The ones listed under related are books/anthologies that contain characters from this series, but they exist outside of the series time line.

Review: DRAGONSWORN (Dark-Hunter Novels) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

IMG_0612

DRAGONSWORN (Dark-Hunter Novels) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publication Date: August 1, 2017

IMG_3306

IMG_0606There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . except Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin.

Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to stand by and watch him take everything she loves from her again.

This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.

She is the unstoppable force . . .

When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she’s unleashed total Armageddon. If she can’t find some way to control the dragon before it’s too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is world annihilation?

~*~*~*~

image

Love it! Falcyn is my new favorite dragon in this series! DRAGONSWORN is part of the Dragons Rising Trilogy in the Dark-Hunters Series. If you’re new to the series I would recommend you start at the beginning to fully enjoy it. Each book has a HEA ending for different couples but the series needs to be read in order to fully appreciate the characters and series plot. If you just want the dragons I’d recommend starting with SON OF NO ONE. I would also recommend reading the Lords of Avalon Series that Sherrilyn Kenyon writes as Kinley MacGregor because the dragons and the Avalon world are in DRAGONSWORN. DRAGONSWORN is Medea, Stryker’s daughter and Apollo’s granddaughter and Falcyn’s story. I didn’t like Medea in the previous books and viewed her as one of the villains, but Sherrilyn Kenyon has a way of turning a villain into a favorite character and hero. Falcyn and Medea were perfect for each other! Their story was full of heart wrenching emotions, danger, romance and it revealed a lot of new secrets. I need to make a cheat sheet to reference all the secrets.  Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master storyteller and if I had to choose one author’s books to read for the rest of my life I’d choose her books. I always discover some new information I missed when I re-read her series and they never get old or predictable. She always delivers new twists and turns that keep the series exciting. I highly recommend anything she writes and can’t want for the next release!

Review & Giveaway: WHEN I NEED YOU: The Need You Series by Lorelei James

IMG_0272

WHEN I NEED YOU: The Need You Series, Book 4 by Lorelei James

Publication Date: July 25, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Synopsis

IMG_0264Rules are tossed aside when a pro football player join forces with a spitfire cheerleading coach in New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James’s brand-new romance…

Heir to Lund Industries and ladies’ man Jensen “The Rocket” Lund has three conditions when it comes to dating:
1) No single mothers
2) No cheerleaders
3) No medical personnel

So it makes no sense that he’s wildly attracted to Rowan Michaels, who breaks all three.

Rowan didn’t pass the rigorous requirements to become an athletic trainer and Vikings cheerleader in the hopes of landing a pro athlete. Been there, done that, and she has a young son as proof that football players and fidelity don’t go hand in hand. When Rowan learns her new neighbor is Jensen Lund, the smoking-hot tight end who takes being neighborly to a whole new level, she’s grateful for the team’s strict no fraternization policy because the sexy man defines temptation.

But Jensen is intent on rushing straight to the goal line to prove to Rowan he’s much more than just a player…on and off the field.

~*~*~*~

Cori 4.5 Stars

I loved this book! I had a smile on my face throughout the entire book. WHEN I NEED YOU is the fourth book in Lorelei James’s Need You Series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but it’s a great series if you’d like to start at the beginning. The fourth book is Jensen Lund, the sexy football player and Rowan, a cheerleader and single mom’s book. It’s a friends to lovers romance and I enjoyed the slow build. The romance was steamy and I really enjoyed the interactions and banter between the characters. WHEN I NEED YOU was just a really fun and light romance. I highly recommend this book for readers looking for a fun and sexy romance to relax with this summer.

SPELLBINDER (Moonshadow Book 2) by Thea Harrison

Publication Date: July 18, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

IMG_0123From author Thea Harrison comes the latest story in the New York Times bestselling Moonshadow trilogy….

Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.

When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.

One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.

Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.

But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge…

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I loved SPELLBINDER! This is the second book in Thea Harrison’s Moonshadow Trilogy that is set in the Elder Races World. You don’t need to read the Elder Races Series before starting this one, but I would recommend reading book one in the Moonshadow Trilogy, MOONSHADOW, before starting book two. Each book features a different couple and can be read as standalone though. SPELLBINDER is a Morgan, a sorcerer/ werewolf and Sidonie, a human musician’s book. Morgan was one of the villains in book one and even faced off with Dragos in the Elder Races Series, but he’s definitely hero material in this book. I love a good villain to hero storyline. SPELLBINDER was full of danger, mystery, magic and smoking hot romance. Thea Harrison is a master world builder and I loved her take on Avalon! I highly recommend this exciting and unique paranormal series. I’m obsessed with this series and I can’t wait for the next book!

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

IMG_0099In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….

Cori 4 Stars

I really enjoyed this one! KISS MY BOOTS is the second book in Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series and each book features a different Davis family member. This one is Quinn’s story. I just loved her! I wanted to put on my boots and go out and dance! If you’re a girl from Texas you might have danced on a bar in you 20s to get free drinks from cowboys. So much fun! Tate was perfect for Quinn! I just loved them together and completely fell for Tate. This was a great second chance love story and it gave me all the feels! I recommend this series for romance lovers looking for hot cowboy romances. I can’t wait for Clay’s book!

Blog Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway: DRAKON’S PLUNDER (Blood of the Drakon) by N.J. Walters

IMG_9260

DRAKON’S PLUNDER (Blood of the Drakon, Book 3) by N.J. Walters

Publication Date: July 3, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

Drakon's Plunder CoverLife is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She’s stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her…

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.

Cori 4.5 Stars

Every time I pick up a book in this series I fall more in love with these drakons! I loved Ezra! DRAKON’S PLUNDER is the third book in N.J. Walters paranormal series, Blood of the Drakon. DRAKON’S PLUNDER is Ezra, a water dragon recluse, and Sam, an archaeologist’s story. Danger, romance and sexy dragons…I loved it! N. J. Walter’s paranormal world of drakons (half dragons/ half men) and knights, set in present day, is unique and exciting. I can’t wait for the next brother’s book and I’m hoping there are more drakons introduced in the series so it can continue. I’m obsessed with these dragons and I highly recommend this series for paranormal fans!

Excerpt

“You have no idea who is looking for me.” She shoved the blanket aside and sat up. It was time to get dressed, if she still had any clothes, and get out of here. “These people are dangerous and will stop at nothing to find me. If they don’t find a body at the wreck—” She broke off before she said too much.

“So you were in a wreck. I wondered why you were alone in the dinghy. And who is after you?” He stood, looming like a large, avenging angel over her. “You can trust me to protect you.”

“You might be willing to risk yourself, but I’m not. I need to leave. Where are my clothes?”

As though she hadn’t spoken, Ezra continued. “You must be thirsty. Hungry, too. I’m starving. How about I make some bacon and eggs? Maybe some pancakes and toast.” He left her standing there and padded barefoot into the kitchen. Why did she find it so sexy that he was barefoot?

She was obviously not thinking straight, otherwise she wouldn’t notice the way his long hair brushed his shoulders or the way the soft denim cupped his behind as he walked away. Her toes curled against the rug.

She snatched up the throw blanket, wrapped it around her, and hurried after him. “Didn’t you hear anything I just told you? It’s not safe for you if I’m here. The people looking for me will kill you.”

Ezra pulled a carton of eggs, butter, and a package of bacon out of the refrigerator and set them on the counter. He added a box of pancake mix and a bowl to his collection before getting several large skillets out of the cupboard.

“Did you hear me?” she demanded. “They’ll kill you.”

Ezra propped his hands on his hips and faced her. “Not if I kill them first.”

Review: WICKED KISS (Realm Enforcers Book 4) by Rebecca Zanetti

IMG_9190

WICKED KISS (Realm Enforcers Book 4) by Rebecca Zanetti

Publication Date: July 4, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

SynopsisIMG_9177Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far…

Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . . .

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I love this series and was so excited to get my hands in Adam’s book. Adam is my favorite Dunne brother! I just love him! WICKED KISS is the fourth book in Rebecca Zanetti’s Realm Enforcers series. The series is a paranormal series with witches, shifters, vampires and demons and focuses on the Dunne family of witches. The Realm Enforcers series is a spinoff series from the Dark Protectors series that focused on the vampires in the same paranormal world. You don’t need to read the Dark Protectors series before picking up this series, but I highly recommend both series. I love them and the Dark Protectors series would make a great binge read. I recommend reading each series in order, but each book can be read as a standalone. WICKED KISS was action packed, full of danger and smoking hot romance. It kept me riveted and I couldn’t put it down. I was already in love with Adam before picking up this book and fell even more in love with him while reading his story. Victoria was just perfect for him! Their banter was fun and the romance was hot. Rebecca Zanetti is one of my favorite authors because she’s a great storyteller that always delivers an exciting love story. I highly recommend anything she writes and I loved WICKED KISS!

Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: SAVAGED DREAMS by Jennifer Lyon

IMG_8945

SAVAGED DREAMS (Savaged Illusions Trilogy) by Jennifer Lyon

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

savaged dreamsGoing away to college gives LIZA GLASNER a chance to escape her painful and dangerous past…or so she thinks. At fourteen years old, she survived an attack by a famous musician. After that, the media, groupies and crazies hounded her with a merciless cruelty that ruined her life. But now she’s thriving—until an internship brings her face to face with the sizzling hot lead singer of a rock band, and she finds herself drawn to the very thing that once destroyed her. Justice is a temptation she can’t resist…and one that could get her killed.

Sexy rock star JUSTICE CADE is determined to take his band, Savaged Illusions, to the top by winning the Court of Rock T.V. show. Tortured by guilt for failing his family, he believes fame is his only path to redemption. But when the fiery college-intern hiding her beauty beneath baggy sweaters and a snarky attitude bursts into his life, Justice is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the stardom he craves. The wrong choice will cost him more than he can bear.

**This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. However the next two books are being released in July and September so readers won’t be stranded on the cliff for long!

~*~*~*~

Excerpt

For a few seconds they stood there watching before she became aware of Justice’s gaze on her. “What?”

“You look beautiful tonight. All damned night, I’ve watched you. Every time you laughed, it jolted straight to my cock. I wanted to yank you against me and kiss the hell out of you, show the entire ship that you’re mine.” He clenched his jaw, his eyes glinting. “I’ve never had this possessiveness over a woman.”

Energy crackled between them, a connection so magnetic she leaned into him. For years, Liza had felt like a burden forced on her aunt and uncle. The outside world judged her without even knowing her. But Justice did know her, and he wanted her. That sensation poured into the loneliest part of Liza, making her feel sexy, worthy and a little bit wary. She wanted to feel this, but not lose her head.

“Lust. This is just lust, right?” She needed something to tell herself, to hold on to. She wasn’t going to throw her life away or become her mom. “It’ll burn itself out.” Not destroy her.

His gaze scorched into hers. “That what it feels like to you? Like a couple orgasms will cure this attraction?” He fingered a lock of her hair. “Or will it whet your appetite for more?”

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

Loved! SAVAGED DREAMS is the first book in Jennifer Lyon’s Savaged Illusions Trilogy, a rock star romance series. There is a prequel novella, SAVAGED SURRENDER, you can grab before this one, but you don’t need to read it before picking up SAVAGED DREAMS. I always enjoy any book I pick up written by Jennifer Lyon, whether she’s writing contemporary romance or paranormal romance she always delivers a great love story. SAVAGED DREAMS is a great love story! I completely fell in love with Justice, the sexy, dirty talking rock star and I was rooting for Liza. Jennifer Lyon brought the heat! The romance was smoking hot and the love story gave me all the feels. There is a bit of a cliffhanger, but not the kind of cliffhanger that makes me want to throw my kindle. The first part of the Trilogy still felt complete. I can’t wait for the next release though. I want more of Justice! I highly recommend this new trilogy for romance lovers looking for a new rock series. I couldn’t put this one down.

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: REVENGE (A Lawless Novel) by Lexi Blake

IMG_8912

REVENGE (A Lawless Novel) by Lexi Blake

Publication Date: June 20, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

9780425283592Passion and danger collide in the latest contemporary romance featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

When Drew Lawless discovers a fatal flaw in his plan to avenge his parents’ deaths, he turns to the one woman he’d promised he wouldn’t touch. He offers her a deal, one that will bring her into his investigation, his life, and his bed.

Investigative reporter Shelby Gates never dreamed how twisted the case would become—or how fascinated she would be with Drew. Every day they spend together binds them. And every night brings her closer to realizing he might be the man for her.

As Drew’s feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

~*~*~*~

Excerpt

“I suppose we’re going to be seeing Carly and Bran while we’re in Dallas next week.”

She had one week to get comfortable around Drew. One week to figure out if she could actually sell this cover to his family.

“It would seem odd if I didn’t pay them a visit. Bran knows I have a meeting with Taggart scheduled. We’ll be in Dallas for two days. Dinner with Bran and Carly and Mia and Case has already been planned.”

“Exactly. And you don’t want to raise a bunch of questions. So I was thinking it might be smarter for me to get my own hotel room. I can lay low and they don’t have to know I’m in town.” She’d sat up for a good portion of the night doing two things: thinking about how much she’d wanted to kiss Drew Lawless and then freaking out about it because that was a bad idea. Beware of billionaires with six-pack abs. It was her new mantra. Yes, she’d signed the contract last night, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t reason with her new . . . boss . . . partner . . . whatever he was.

“I told Bran you’re coming with me.”

This was exactly what she’d worried about. “You told him? I thought I would have more time. How am I going to explain this to Carly? I think she’ll wonder why one of her closest friends didn’t mention she was dating her future brother-in-law.”

“I’ve already explained it. We wanted to make sure it was real before we went public. It’s that simple. We met in Los Angeles. I contacted you. We went on a few dates and we’ve been talking a lot. You’ve come out to Austin because we’re contemplating moving in together. This is a trial run,” he said calmly, as though he hadn’t upended her entire life. “Also, I asked Bran not to mention it to Carly because you would rather tell her yourself. It was a safe bet Bran wouldn’t ask too many questions, but Carly will want to know everything. It’s why we need to get our stories straight.”

She focused on the words that messed with her life. “Moving in together? You told them we’re thinking of moving in together?”

“How else was I supposed to explain it when all your belongings arrive here?”

“What?” She winced because the words had come out in a screech. “I’m having your things packed up as we speak. They’ll be here in a few days.”

“Why the hell would you do that?” How was she going to get everything back to LA?

Drew relaxed again as though he’d already gone over this argument in his mind and knew he would win. “I wanted you to be comfortable. This is going to be a full-time job, and not a quick one. I suspect we’ll have to keep up our ruse for at least six months. Potentially a year. Also, that apartment you were living in was incredibly dangerous. Did you know it was recently condemned? The movers told me about it when they explained they were charging me extra for how fast they had to move. It’s scheduled to be demolished in two weeks.”

“What?” She stared at him. He expected her to live with him for six months to a year? Somewhere in the back of her head she’d been thinking a week or two tops, and then she’d go back to LA and work from there. Her apartment building was shitty and she was fairly certain someone cooked meth in part of it, but it was all she could afford. And it was solidly built. There had been no hint that anyone was planning on building in her part of LA. Gentrification had not reared its upscale, hipster head yet, so that left her with one very manipulative bastard. “Tell me you did not buy my apartment building and schedule it for demolition in an attempt to leave me with nowhere to go.”

He managed to look almost angelic in the soft light of morning. “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

I thought Bran was my favorite Lawless brother, but Drew won me over and nudged his brother out of the way. I completely fell in love with him. I can’t resist a nerdy alpha hero. In the previous books I thought Drew was cold and unfeeling, but this book revealed things in his past that contributed to it. He’s the oldest Lawless sibling and when their parents were murdered he took care of and protected his family and still feels the need to protect and take care of everyone he loves. Shelby was perfect for Drew and I just loved them together. Their chemistry was fan your face hot! REVENGE had plenty of hot romance, suspense with some twists and some humor. I couldn’t put it down and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Lawless series is a spinoff of Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. The series has a book for each of the brothers in the Lawless family, but their sister Mia has a book in the Masters and Mercenaries series, Dominance Never Dies. You don’t have to read it before picking up the Lawless Seriesbut if you want to follow the complete storyline I’d read it first. REVENGE is the third book in the series and I’d recommend reading the series in order and starting with the first book, RUTHLESS.

I loved the Lawless series and highly recommend it for romance lovers looking for a great mystery/ romantic suspense series to binge read. It’s going on my list of favorites.

Review: THE DARKEST PROMISE (Lords of the Underworld) by Gena Showalter

IMG_8847

THE DARKEST PROMISE (Lords of the Underworld) by Gena Showalter

Publication Date: June 13, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

Cover_The Darkest Promise_Gena ShowalterNew York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Lords of the Underworld story about an iron-willed sovereign and the somber beauty who melts him with a glance…

Possessed by the demon of Misery, Cameo isn’t allowed to experience joy. If she dares, her memory is wiped clean. With no other recourse, she sneaks into a land more fantastical than any fairy tale, determined to find the one man with the key to her redemption.

Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual rules his kingdom with a single unwavering focus: to build his army and annihilate his enemies. Nothing distracts him—until Cameo. He is relentless in his quest to make her smile…and seduce her into his bed.

As dark forces conspire against them, threatening to destroy the fragile bond they’ve forged, the once-calm Lazarus grows crazed. Every heart-stopping kiss and wicked touch causes Cameo to teeter on the brink of happiness. But if she falls, she risks forgetting him forever…

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I absolutely loved everything about this book! THE DARKEST PROMISE is the thirteenth book in Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series and features Cameo, the keeper of Misery and Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual. I recommend reading the series in order to fully enjoy the series storyline.

I wasn’t super excited for Cameo’s book because I really didn’t know much about her from the previous books other than she was the only female LORD. I absolutely LOVED her though! She’s everything you want a heroine to be because she’s strong, passionate, emotional, and she fights for her man. Lazarus was just perfect for her! I loved their banter and I loved that he was the one to make her smile and laugh. Their chemistry and the romance burned up the pages. Viola, Rathorne and the twins, Ever and Urban added fun to the book and I want more of them! This was definitely a girl power book with all the strong female characters. Viola was there as Cameo’s friend and the villains were powerful women as well. This would be a fun book to read with your girlfriends and discuss with some wine one night.

THE DARKEST PROMISE is one of my favorite books in the Lords of the Underworld series! I couldn’t put it down and I just loved everything about it!  I highly recommend this series for paranormal romance lovers. Gena Showalter is one of the Queens of paranormal romance and she always delivers a great love story.
