The highest stakes…

My father gambles every night, falling deeper and deeper into debt. When he hits the bottom, he places a new bet: his daughter. I’m his entry bet to the biggest underground poker game.

Every kind of danger circles the velvet-covered table, but only one man makes me tremble.

A trailer park princess.

The son of a criminal king.

We don’t belong together, but I’m caught in a twisted game.

His eyes meet mine with dark promise. And when he puts down his cards, I know I’m going to lose more than my body. I’m going to lose everything.

* * * * *

THE KING is the first book in the new Masterpiece duet about risking your heart and finding yourself. It’s a spin-off from the USA Today bestselling trilogy but can be read separately.

REVIEW:

I love that this book ends up back where The Castle took place, it gives us that other perspective.  Damon and Penny are both so haunted, and Damon knows he shouldn’t want Penny, but he can’t help it.  It is and will always be her for him.  Penny has had a hard life, and Damon tried to help her when she was little, but some things in life are really just set out for you.

You can really see Damon fighting things and you can see the good and the bad within him, but you can always see that soft spot for Penny.  And while she may want to fight it, she is just as attracted to Damon.  Penny is only 15 in this book, so while we don’t get sexual intimacy, I feel like there is intimacy in a different form, you can see the connection between them through Skye’s writing.

Skye has such a way with words that you just feel so drawn in to the story.  The only thing I would change would be to add more about Damon as I really did feel a majority of this was focused on Penny’s past, etc  but I have a feeling that The Queen will cover this.  A dark read that you won’t be able to put down and you will feel for both Damon and Penny throughout this story.

Unforgiven by Willow Winters

 

Title: Unforgiven
Series: Sins and Secrets #2
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 19, 2017
Blurb
The sins of his past can’t be forgiven.
Mason Thatcher gave me chills when I first laid eyes on
him.  The good kind. The kind that makes your body ache and your heart
hammer.  
What’s better is that he looked at me the same way.
There was a hunger in his eyes that wouldn’t be sated, and a
confidence in his stride that told me I could never run from him. Back then, I
didn’t want to.
It’s not fair that his touch eased my pain.  
That his lips on mine made my worries vanish.  
That his love gave me a reason to breathe again.
With him, I felt complete, as if fate had given me a second
chance.
Then I learned the truth: the sins and secrets of what really
brought us together.  
I knew it was too good to be true, but I could never have
imagined he’d be capable of something so cold and cruel.
There’s no way we can go back to what we once were and it’s
not as easy as walking away.  He won’t let me.  He can’t risk me
telling his secrets.
I don’t know what choices I have or how I’ll survive this.
What he’s done is unforgivable, but that doesn’t mean he’s
going to let me go.

Review

This is book 2 and you HAVE to read book 1 (Imperfect) first since you will miss a lot and be lost. With that said, this book overall is much darker then book 1, but so much emotion is in it.

Mason doesn’t want to lose Julia so he in a way kidnaps her…that is where we start, but nowhere near where this story ends. Jules is lost and confused and hurt and pissed and yet she loves Mason but she knows she can’t stay there, she can’t forgive him.

One of the best things of this duet is the poems that Willow adds to the beginning of each chapter. There is so much emotion in them without even reading the rest.

But this is a book you can not put now as you have to know what happens. Lies, betrayal, hurt, kidnapping, running away, despair, losing everything, and mostly love…where does that all lead us. Are there things are that really are UNFORGIVABLE or can we in the end get past the hurt and “events” and let our love through.

Willow has a way with words that can show us how much in love two people can be and yet can also show the hurt that is there, 2 different emotions at the same time really come through the pages of this book.

Review of book 1:

 

 

Wow, Wow, Wow! This book is amazing and yet it does end on a HUGE cliffhanger. (But it is a duet so I wouldn’t expect any less).

Mason and Jules have amazing chemistry and you can’t help but love the two of them together. Mason is this good guy right from the start and Jules is *scared*, she hasn’t done any dating since losing her husband about 8 months prior, and it was her looking for Mason, but she found him and was intrigued and couldn’t help the connection and chemistry.

This is a book you will have trouble putting down.

Battle Scars by Emily Goodwin Cover Reveal

Title: Battle Scars
Series: Love is Messy Duet Book #2
Author: Emily Goodwin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 29
They say time heals all wounds, but sometimes it does just the opposite. The pain festers, seeping deep into your heart. By the time you’ve realized what happened, it’s too late and you’re left with a scar that will never go away.
I’ve spent the last year hiding my scars, running from the man who gave them to me. What I thought was love turned out to be a nightmare that won’t end, even though I forced myself awake. Love isn’t real. Love only leads to heartache.
And then I met him, the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. Throw in some sexy confidence and a panty-melting grin, and you have the recipe for a broken heart. Only, my heart is becoming full again, being put back together piece by piece the more time we spend together.
I’ve been down this road before and know it’ll end in two ways: we’ll ride off in the sunset together and live happily ever after, or we’ll crash and burn so hard neither will survive the wreckage. I want to be hopeful, but history is damned to repeat itself. And I have the scars to prove it.

LOSTINBETWEEN_TEASER7

We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

FOUNDUNDERNEATH_TEASER4

BLURB

It began as a ruse.

Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on.

Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell.

I found her.

My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy.

I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things.

Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us.

In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless.

I may very well lose the only woman I’ve ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming.

*warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.

AUTHOR BIO

As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

REVIEW

I think my heart is still somewhere in that book with Shaw and Willow, holy heck this book. I cried more then once, they heartache these characters face will melt even the toughest statue. K.L. has such a way with words in her writing especially for Shaw that I think every woman can’t help but be captivated by him, he is your ideal book boyfriend.

After the end of book one you were waiting to see when the other shoe would drop, and it was NOTHING like what you would expect. It was so raw and emotional and I won’t give anything away, but it was amazingly done. K.L. Kreig can manage to break your heart and blow you away at the exact same time.

Shaw and Willow really have an amazing love story. I also love Noah and Sierra and the rest of his family. They all bring a nice balance to the story and can often times help you get inside either Noah or Willow’s head. (And without spoilers, the ending made me bawl like a baby and was absolute perfection) I don’t think Ms. Kreig will ever cease to amaze me with her writing.
