Review The Gods of love by Nicola Mostyn /Piatkus Books


This book is definitely going to be one of my top reads for 2018, and I will look forward to more from Nicola Mostyn in the future. I love her writing style!

„I press the small button that alerts the guard in charge of patrolling this whole row of offices. As I do so, Dan stands up. Instinctively I jerk backward and, wishing I’d kept the pepper spray to hand, grab the nearest sharp object.
He smiles again. ‘Are you going to write me a sternly worded note?’
I glance down at the fountain pen in my hand. Oh dear. Witty, as well as mad. I better get him out of here before I start dating him.”

The concept of this book is pretty awesome. At first, you think ‘how is the god of love’s descendant going to save the world? But it does somehow make sense with the more you read. I liked the inclusion of Anteros and actually found him to be a fitting villain. It helped that we didn’t meet him until the very end – this gave him an air of danger. Imagine yourself in a dark room with the knowledge that a murderer was in there with you. The knowing and not seeing can sometimes be scarier and have more of an effect.
I liked Frida, she came across strong although her gullibility and naivety were her downfalls. Her capability reminded me a lot of Feyre (ACOTAR) especially throughout those trials. I would have liked to have seen more of her ‘ability’ – the one where she is able to sense things about people and subtly manipulate them but I guess she didn’t really notice/ realize this until much later in the book.
In addition to excellent plot and characters, the writing is smooth and accomplished, and the author’s style is light and witty.
The imaginings of certain settings from mythology were absolutely fantastic, most notably the underworld and the labyrinth. I loved the idea of waning gods latching on to modern day consumerism to try to restore their sway over the world. This translated into a plot that has a definite quest vibe, wrathful gods and scary minions included. I loved it.
This was a fun, fast-paced easy read that kept me entertained with plenty of twists and turns in the plot.

Review Judgment Road by Christine Feehan / Piatkus Books

36465909An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Christine Feehan.

A brutal education in a Russian training facility for assassins has taught this group of men one thing:

It’s a long road to redemption.

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He’s a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can’t afford–until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin . . .

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper’s imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya’s touch is everything Reaper doesn’t want – and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up with her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club–his heart and his soul.

I am addicted to MC Romance so when I saw the latest cover with a biker on it this baby got my attention. So, I gave it a chance and it was the best decision ever! I can’t even put into words how much I enjoyed this book, it was that good.I liked that this group of people escaped, stayed together, supported each other and made it a priority to hunt down and “take care of” pedophiles and save the kids involved.
First, let me say that I did really enjoy most of the book. Feehan + Motorcycle club? What’s not to like? I was a little surprised she started with Reaper simply because from what we saw in Bound Together he seemed like the most messed up member of the club but once I was introduced to Anya and saw how they were together I realized that it had to start with Reaper. The other club members need to see that if he can have hope they could too. Seeing Blythe and Viktor wasn’t enough because they all consider Viktor the best of them so they still don’t believe they could find love too. Despite what I’m going to put in the spoiler tag at the end here, I did really like both Reaper and Anya’s characters. They complemented each other. Anya was especially impressive because of the all the shit that got thrown at her but she stayed strong.
Imagini pentru sons of anarchy gif
“He was desperate for her to see inside, to look past all the layers of darkness and find that part of him she’d touched. The part that needed her to save him.”

Reaper and the others that make up the Torpedo Ink MC are hardened trained assassins and have never been taught the normal, common sense ways of forming relationships and behaving. Reaper found it extremely hard to process these feelings he was having and how to express them to Anya, without making a total mess of it. It was important for this to be conveyed throughout the story because this wasn’t the norm for them and how they had each other’s back and wanted to make changes. Anya was a tough character and didn’t have it easy either with her past and no family for her to count on. These two characters did some major growth and knew they had to take baby steps in order to have a chance at a good life
This action and the emotion-filled story filled all the nooks and crannies it needed to get me out of a lowly book funk. I’ve already re-read this again as I read it so fast the first time around I needed to experience it again.
Things are set up for book 2, and I’m super excited for that to come out. Now that I’ve been introduced to these wildly fascinating characters, I can’t wait to read more.

Review “A Winter’s Tale” by Carrie Elks

36268661Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is determined to make the most of her new job as nanny to major producer Everett Klein’s son, Jonas. It might not be exactly the career she’d hoped for when she moved from London to LA, but thanks to her habit of freezing up in interviews, this is her last chance to impress a key player in Hollywood – if she can get this right, then surely he’ll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn’t allowed for is Everett’s sexy-as-hell brother, Adam – but love at first sight this is not.

Adam Klein may be sexy, but he’s also gruff and rude and in no way ready to make a fool of himself over the nanny – not after the year he’s had. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race . . .

As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam come to realise that the course of true love never does run smooth – and just maybe, it’s more interesting that way…

A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters Christmas romance from the bestselling author of Fix You.

Hello once more dear readers. Since the holidays are coming next month, we, the people behind your favorite book blog have a great recommendation slash review for you to read during the holidays.

With some hot spiced wine (warm chocolate if you’re under 18, of course).

A winter’s tale is the second book in the awesome “Shakespeare Sisters” series and the best possible read if you’re in a festive mood.

Simply put, it had everything a good book needs. You have angsty romance, you have Adam a documentary maker, you have love, you have Adam a documentary maker, you have family drama, you have Adam a documentary maker and obviously the required and mandatory smexy times for the very likeable – trust me, you’re gonna love Kitty and Adam, but especially Adam – couple.

Cough. OK, i loved Adam.

*whispering*As if that wasn’t obvious*whispering*

Now, as you all well know (kinda hard not to since i’ve been shoving this information down your throats at every review of a book with this kind of male lead) I have a very soft spot for the grumpy type of MC.

Now, the sadistic hidden romantic in me I valiantly ignore each time and staunchly pretend it does’t exist was kinda happy with the plot and the Christmas feels.

Kitty Shakespeare, our very gentle, warm and nice heroine started working as a nanny for a young boy who just happens to be (hey, it’s fiction, right? And coincidences happen at every step) the son of the guy who’s the boss at the company where she wants to intern.

And no, the boss with the kiddo is not the main guy in this story.

Instead it’s the brother.

Now, talking about yummy brooding male leads.

It also helps that the action takes place in Virginia and i’ve read the entire book with the song “Take me Home, Country Roads” (People who saw Kingsman: The Golden circle know what i’m talking about) put on repeat.

It fits. No, seriously, it really does.

Well, Christmas carols would also be appropriate, I guess.

The characters are complex and very well developed and in case you were hesitating because of my angsty comment above, have no worries; the book isn’t heavy on angst and the plot is fun, detailed and catchy.

And Adam, despite his occasional rudeness, gruff demeanor and brooding attitude is a

sweet guy through and through.  What i particularly loved between Kitty and Adam was the transition from slight antipathy to friends and then lovers. But no worries, even with the initial less than promising start between the two, you can still practically see the sparks flying.

While you can read this book as a standalone, I strongly advise you to also indulge in the first book of the series ”Summer’s Lease”. I mean, Christmas love stories are awesome, but steamy Italian summers are not too bad either.

And yes, we do have a lot of Shakespeare references in “A Winter’s Tale”, so grab your mug, put some logs in the fireplace and sit back in your favorite armchair near the Christmas tree and enjoy this great read to your heart’s content, fellow bookaholics.

Happy publication day, A winter’s tale !

Thank you Piatkus Books for this lovely book.

Blog Tour : Wilde in Love by Eloisa James

blog tour poster

‘Eloisa James is extraordinary’ People Magazine

‘Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than Eloisa James’ Julia Quinn

9780349409030WILDE in Love

Eloisa James

Published 31st October 2017

Paperback Original | £8.99


The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm-and introduces a large, eccentric family. Things are about to get Wilde . . .


Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks.


Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.


Willa presents the façade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.


Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle. But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy . . .


A New York Times bestseller many times over, Eloisa James lives in New York City, where she is a Shakespeare professor (with an M.Phil. from Oxford). She is also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.


Spoiler Free Review.

Ladies, grab a cup of tea, lit a candle and ask Mother Nature for some rain, because this is the perfect book for a rainy weekend .

Wilde in Love was for me, one of those books that I just needed to read. Sweet, well written and great dialogue  are the ingredients of Wilde in love. One of the things I loved the most about this book was the fact that Alaric and Willa were so different and you could see it in the chemistry between them that  was absolutely  sizzling, even if Willa declared she was unimpressed by him. I liked the secondary characters , especially Alaric’s family , which were a big part in the story and I hope we will get a book with them too, soon.

Imagini pentru white queen gif

Willa and Alaric are one of those pair that they just don’t want to follow the rules of society, they are both sassy and smart and they love to push their buttons .And I loved it!I think that was the best part in the book.

Another thing that I enjoyed while reading Wilde in love was Willa, which was in my opinion , a very strong character. She had a voice, an opinion , a rebellious heart . She made me wish   I had a friend like her!

Imagini pentru my sassy girl 2017 gif

And let’s not forget Alaric and his pursuit of  Willa. He didn’t give up, even if Willa wasn’t impressed by him . She intrigued him at first because she couldn’t care less about his famous status between the ladies , but after he gets to know more about her, her intelligence and wit are a key factor  of his attraction to her.

Imagini pentru white queen gif

And did I mention he writes books? About him and his travels.And now he is a celebrity with the ladies. And now I want to read his books too! I wonder if I write a book about my boring life …will that land me Johnny Deep or Brad Pitt? They’re both single now. Just saying.

If you like a  slow burn romance, with strong characters and lots of funny moments, this is the perfect book for you.

So please give Eloisa James the crown because she got me hooked on her new  series with a lovely story and great characters  and Wilde in love was a book I couldn’t put down ,except to make another cup of tea.

I really enjoyed reading it!

“Dragonsworn” Review

Sherrilyn Kenyon returns with the next addictive novel in her globally bestselling Dark-Hunter series . . .


There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . and in particular, Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he lies in seclusion, away from the world and 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 standby 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 Greek Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.

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 total destruction?

Hello once more, dear book fans. We’re back on familiar ground now with one of my (and i’m sure yours as well) favourite genres. Yep, you got it, the (in)famous  PNR. And this review concerns an equally well known book an author. It’s no surprise to some of you that Sherrilyn Kenyon is an old beloved of mine.  Same goes for the New Work bestseller “Dark Hunters” series, which has reached an impressive number of books (28 so far, with the 29th expected to appear on the shelves in summer 2018)

Right now, i’ll start raving about the last book in the series, a.k.a. “Dragonsworn”. *stares in adoration at the cover*. Since we’re talking about so many epic books, i’ll try my best not to spoil it for you, eager fans, who have no yet managed to read all 28 bundles of goodness.

The couple this time is made out of a very sexy and grumpy dragon and the very tough cookie who happens to be a granddaughter of Apollo.

Yes, that Apollo.

Ladies and gentlemen, i give you *drum noises* Falcyn and Medea.

Let me start by saying that i have a very huge, very weak spot for dragons. And we just happen to have a red dragon right here, with a grumpy, sullen attitude and a heart of gold.

The book starts pretty slow if you happen to be the impatient type of reader, but catches up pretty fast in the second half where i was bouncing like an overeager kid on the edge of my chair in my haste to find out what was bound to happen in the next page (i think i also fried my kindle this time, but God, was it worth it).

We have everything you might want in a story. We have a kickass heroine i utterly approve of (most of you probably caught up pretty fast that i have an inborn distaste for weak-willed females as MCs), we have snark, we have funny moments and excitement as far as the plot line is concerned and of course, in the usual Sherrilyn Kenyon fashion, we get some long-awaited questions answered and some brand new questions to BE answered in the next books to the delight and impatience of all concerned

Mainly me, obsessed (#veryproud) fan that i am; cue in the above gif.

To be blunt, these two characters rocked. They didn’t accept any crap from anybody, they gave as good as they got and there were some pretty fiery sparks going on in this book, if you catch my meaning *hint, hint below*


OK, that was pretty obvious and kind of impossible not to catch my meaning, So, if you don’t have this book quite yet, well then, pounce on the internet and make sure to hit that Buy button to the delight of everyone concerned because And if you haven’t yet reached the 28th book, then shame on you, fellow book reader. How else would you know what will happen with this awesome couple, adorable grumpy dragon included?

Or even the very interesting hints about Urian, Apollymi and others? We even get to see our favorite villain again, well, certainly mine, because Morgen le Fey does the job very well.

So make sure to put your paws on the latest book in the Dark Hunters series. That is, if you like your men scorching hot and with emotional wounds that only a tough and kickass heroine can heal.

And i have a hunch you kinda do.

A big THANK YOU to Piatkus Books for providing me this book for review.

“Devil’s Cut” Review

In #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s thrilling finale of the Bourbon Kings series, the Bradford family dynasty teeters on the edge of collapse after the murder of their patriarch—and a shocking arrest.


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’s for certain: Love survives all things. Even murder.

AAAANNNDD we’re back!


This time with a well-known personal favourite I’ve been pestering you guys with for quite some time, a.k.a. the all-time epic J.R. Ward. Today’s book review is “Devil’s Cut” the 3rd book (and the last one, unfortunately) in the Bourbon Kings series.

I’m a bit of a sucker for romantic suspense and southern tales, and since i get both of them in this book, imagine my joy and enthusiasm. “Devil’s Cut” was just as well-written and epic as the first 2 books in the series (here is me admitting that i absolutely adore anything that this awesome woman writes)

I got all my long-awaited questions answered and i got to see front row how  everything worked out for everyone.

If i were a weaker soul, i would admit that i cried like a babe at this last

instalment  of the trilogy and at how everything worked out in the end for my beloved characters. The saga has been for me something like a glorious journey, full of soul and even poetic sometimes (which i simply loved, despite not being the type to go all teary-eyed at soul-wrenching drama)

If some of you, beloved readers, remember “The Angel’s Share” review from a while back, then you’ll no doubt recall my comparison to that delicious old-school soap opera “Dynasty”. You will be happy to hear that “Devil’s Share” maintained the same air and writing style we all came to love and worship.

This series has followed the Bradford family through lots of good and bad experiences (well, mostly bad to be honest). We finally find out who killed Lane’s father, we get to see wayyy more of Gin’s and Samuel, who had quite the chemistry going on as lovers and we witness how everything comes together in the end.

Now, if only that pesky pride would stop getting in both their ornery ways, we’ll be all set, as far as Samuel T. and Gin are concerned.

I’m very sure it’s not just me who has been valiantly rooting for Gin and not so secretly hoping that she finally gets to have her much deserved happy ending. She did grow up and became more mature as far as decision making goes, and we have to admit that we all love some serious character development in a good book.

To sum it all up, my eyes looked like this at the end:

Add to all this goodness a compelling Kentucky setting and the usual scandalous moments we have come to expect from the Bradford family and I foresee some very generous rereads in the future for this one.

2lmtmah, signing off.

A big THANK YOU to Piatkus Books for providing me with a copy of Devil’s Cut for review.

“Black Sheep” by Zara Cox

In a family of cold-hearted black sheep,
I, Axel Rutherford, am the blackest.
My father has hated me since the day I was born. The feeling was mutual. In the shady underworld that was my legacy, Cleo McCarthy became my light. She was beautiful, passionate, and my whole world. So naturally my father had to destroy us. First he sent me away. Next he claimed Cleo as his own. But now I’ve returned, and nothing will stop me from taking back everything that is rightfully mine.

He was the love of my life – when my life was still my own.
We were young enough to believe we would last forever, Axel and I. But neither of us realized how cruel life – and our families – could be. Now I’m trapped in a gilded cage: desired by Axel, who must never know the full truth, and controlled by his father, who would sooner see me dead than free. And I wouldn’t even care, except that it’s no longer only my life at stake

29453362Surprise, surprise! This week’s review is a bit of an unconventional read. Shortly put, if you’re under 18 or feeling particularly adventurous, well, either pounce on this awesomeness or look the other way.

This month’s dark read is ” Black Sheep”, the second book in the “Dark Desires” series by Zara Cox and let me tell you, we have Hot written all over it, with a capital “H”.

So if you happen to be a contemporary romance fan,  and you like your heroes dark and roguish , this is the perfect read for you.

Now, ladies and gentleman (but mostly ladies at this point), i will simply start by posting this:

I need my boyfriend right now and i’m not joking after this steamy read.

*cough, cough* Now back to the review.

But before starting one must always gently warn the blog’s devoted followers

The book is not for the fainthearted or for folks who are not into some serious also very steamy- dark romance. And by steamy, i mean steamy and by dark i DO mean dark.

So, if this is not your cup of tea, kindly run away.

Now, then.

Insufferable villain? Check.

Hot male lead? Check.

Beautiful chick? Check.

Captivating, dark plot? Check.

Despite being part of a series, the book itself is a standalone and pretty fast paced, the characters are flawed, human and real just like i like’em and if my inner fangirl didn’t have enough, we’re talking here about 2 rival mafia families. So, double the pleasure.

Black Sheep is a definite must read if this fits your kink. You basically have everything: darkness, suspense, romance and danger. Think more along the lines of dark and dirty but at the same time sweet and sexy.

Yes, yes this awesome author managed to incorporate all of the before mentioned and made it work wonderfully.

So if you happen to like your male leads to be alphas, tough guys no one dares to mess with AND part of the mob, then you most definitely won’t be disappointed with Axel. It helps a lot that the mister mentioned above is a complete master of dirty talking, sexy brooding style and… well, panty-melting sex personified god (no, i’m not joking here).

The only thing i did NOT like was the heroine’s personality. Gurl, for landing such a great guy like Axel and having the poor guy love you so desperately,  you sure lack in the brain department.

Make no mistake this book is still a 5 stars out of 5 stars, but it would have transcended the rating if dear, ol’ Cleo would have had more… well, brains.  Axel, if you ever get bored of her and decide you want better, i am single and available.

And this is why dear reader, communication is the key. It is something i have learned from my younger British literature days. Meaning I have read Romeo and Juliet and deduced that indeed communication is important in any relationship.

P.S. *SPOILER *this book happily does not have Juliet and Romeo’s ending, despite the similarities in the couples’ relationships. To my personal joy.

A big THANK YOU to Piatkus Books for providing me with a copy of Black Sheep for review.
