BLURB

My wolf hid my fated mates—until the moon goddess forced our mating.

As Alpha of the Central Pack, I know we are the weakest link in the alliance, but I will stop at nothing to prove our worth and rebuild from our shameful and brutal past.

Along the way I fell for Adalyn and Nico, but stayed away, thinking they were fated for each other—and never me.

When a mating bond is forced on us, our worlds collide and now we must survive in this new fated life where rules break and the heat between us boils over.

Only Valac’s revenge over losing his mate in our previous battles take danger to a new level and if I’m not careful, I’ll lose my two mates before I even get a chance to make them fall for me like I have for them.

And if we’re not careful, the darker danger hiding in the shadows might break us all. As Valac’s master is waiting. And he’s closer than we think.

MY REVIEW

Mated in Chaos is the third book in the Aspen Pack series and follows the story of Adalyn, Cole, and Nico. Their story sucks you in from the very first page and isn’t afraid to take you on a wild and sexy ride.

The moon goddess takes things up a notch with this book. Tired of waiting for Adalyn, Cole, and Nico to figure things out, she takes matters into her own hands. This trio is scorching hot and a force to be reckoned with. Not only will these three have to navigate their new dynamic, but are also forced to deal with the danger that threatens to destroy everything.

Mated in Chaos completely suits this story. This story is filled with chaos, heart, sexy good times, and lots of exciting twists and turns. You’ll be kept on the edge of your seat, dying to know what happens next.

All in all, a fantastic read and great addition to this series!

Review: Someone to Love by Kelly Elliott

Posted on

On the Hook

Seasiders,

News on the beach is Braxton Bradley has caught the eye of Seaside’s very own darling, Harlee Tilson. Now, this might come as a shock to many of you, since the eldest Bradley sibling has been rumored to have made a vow to never marry. After all, his fishing charter has always been his number one love.

A little crab might have informed me that Braxton and Harlee were seen in a rather…intimate embrace only two nights ago on the Seaside Pier! The scandal of it all since Harlee is fresh off a breakup with Thomas Minor…who happens to be Braxton’s BFF! Did I mention scandal?

Could it be true? Could Braxton and Harlee be an item? One has to wonder what poor Thomas must think of this new development.

Stay tuned, my fishes…more to come!

Fair winds and following seas!

MY REVIEW

If you’ve been following along with this series as I have then you know how excited I was to finally get my hands on Braxton and Harlee’s story. Braxton and Harlee go together as well as oil and water. And yet somehow, Braxton’s caught the eye of Seaside’s darling, Harlee. Unfortunately, for Braxton, his reputation precedes him and doesn’t give him much of a chance. But there’s more to Braxton than just playboy rumors. He’s a man with a heart of gold on a quest to put some much-needed rumors to rest.

Overall, I thought this book was an enjoyable read. I’ve loved getting swept up in the Seaside Chronicles and trying to discover the identity of Ms. Seaside. Braxton and Harlee’s story doesn’t disappoint. It’s filled with delicious tension, and banter and the chemistry was everything I was hoping it would be. I loved watching Harlee and Braxton try to figure things out and navigate their way to a happily ever after.. My only complaint is that their story is over.

Fans of the Seaside Chronicles won’t want to miss Someone to Love!

My Review

The Path to You is the 3rd book in the Wilder Brothers series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. When we first meet up with Bethany, she’s on top of the world as Hollywood’s sweetheart with a loving boyfriend, or so she thought. When word gets out about her breakup, she’s left with no choice but to escape to Wilder’s Retreat. What she didn’t plan on was running into Everett. Years ago, Evertt and Bethany shared an unforgettable time together, but unbeknownst to both of them, fate would intervene and turn their worlds upside down. And once these two former flames are reunited, all bets are off.

Overall, I thought this book was a really enjoyable read. I found Bethany’s character easy to connect with and felt bad for the way things went down with her ex. I couldn’t imagine being a celebrity and having every part of my life in the spotlight. I loved her chemistry with Everett. I thought they had excellent push and pull. I enjoyed discovering their history together and couldn’t wait to see if they’d get their second chance at love.

The Path to You is a captivating read that will pull you in instantly. The characters are fun and engaging. I love how close-knit the Wilder brothers are. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for our main characters. Not only did they have their own bumps and baggage to deal with, but there was also the element of danger that was following Bethany around. This story definitely kept me on my toes and I enjoyed every second of it!

Release Blitz with Review: A Love Like That by Jenna Hartley

A LOVE LIKE THAT

Jenna Hartley

Release Date: December 2

After my wife died, I never expected to fall in love again, let alone with her much younger sister.

Elle’s too young for me, though.

Too vibrant and cheerful to be saddled with a grumpy widower and two little kids.

Besides, she’s only here for a few months before she moves on to follow her dreams.

And there’s no way we could be together even if she were staying.

It doesn’t seem to matter how often I remind myself of all the reasons why we can’t, or shouldn’t be together, my body won’t listen.

Ever since Elle moved in, all I can think about is her. All I want is her.

She restored order to my home. She got my kids to smile and laugh again. Even I’m smiling more.

For the first time since my wife’s death, I feel alive, hopeful.

I already said goodbye to my childhood sweetheart, my wife, and the mother of my children.

And I know I have to let Elle go; I’m just not sure if I can.

MY REVIEW

A Love Like That is my first book by Jenna Hartley and certainly won’t be my last. A Love Like That is an emotional, yet unconventional love story that is sure to pull on the heartstrings of its readers.

Ever since Tristan’s wife died, he found himself floundering. No matter how hard he tries, he feels like he’s disappointing everyone, including his children. When his sister-in-law, Elle, steps in, she’s the answer to his prayers in more ways than one. And so begins a journey of hope, second chances, and learning to live again.

A Love Like That checked off so many of my top trope boxes! I’m a sucker for forced proximity and age-gap romances and this one certainly knocked it out of the park. I also quite enjoyed the forbidden factor of this story. I know it’s not for everyone, but it really worked with this story. From the moment you meet Elle & Tristan, you can’t help but connect and root for them. The chemistry between them is intense and just flows off the pages. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one, there were so many obstacles standing in their way, and I for one couldn’t wait to see how everything came together in the end.

In the end, A Love Like That is a wonderful second-chance romance that will leave you with all the feels. I’m so glad that I’ve discovered this author and look forward to checking out the previous books in this series, asap!

Release Tour and Review for The Broadway Series Relaunch by Allie York

Release Tour and Review for The Broadway Series Relaunch by Allie York

The Broadway Series is relaunching with new titles and gorgeous new covers! Allie York brings you five steamy, suspenseful romance reads with everything from single parents and secret admirers, to surprise babies and more – all in one heartwarming series.

Chance Blurb

Jovie

Between running a successful business and attempting to pen a best-selling novel, I don’t have the time or energy for the kind or romance I love to write about.

So, I let it fall to the wayside.

The thing is, life has a funny way of delivering what you need when you least expect it. And trust me, I was not expecting a poodle to be the one delivering a sexy Brit into my world.

Ewan

A tragic accident left me with time for only one woman in my life – my little sister, Amelia. Raising a teenager is enough work without adding in the hassle that comes with relationships.

But when my disobedient dog, Clark, crashes into a sexy dog trainer and practically bows at her feet, the attraction is immediate.

The chemistry between us is hard to fight and Jovie fits comfortably in my life with Amelia.

It’s all or nothing when someone else decides they want to change the game. Someone deadly, who has their sights set on what’s mine.

My Review of Chance

This is my first book by Allie York and it certainly won’t be my last!

Between running her own business and attempting to write a best-selling novel, Jovie doesn’t have time for love. But when a chance encounter with a disobedient dog has Ewan crashing into her life, Jovie’s left wanting things she never anticipated.

I was pulled into Jovie and Ewan’s story from the very first page. The sparks between the two of them were instant and I loved the push and pull. Neither one of them was looking for a relationship, but fate had plans of its own. The road to happily ever after certainly wasn’t an easy one for these two. Jovie’s crazed client certainly stirred up trouble, keeping things interesting and leaving me on the edge of my seat as the story played out.

This series is off to one heck of a start and I can’t wait to see what adventure is in store for us next in the Broadway series.

Change Blurb

Lydia

Raising Ollie alone hasn’t been an easy task but there was no other option. Thirteen years ago, I let his father walk away – without knowing the truth.

I always thought it was for the best. Maintaining the secret about Ollie’s true parentage seems like the right thing to do.

But a chance run in with Jacob stirs up all the emotions I thought I’d left in the past and sends my world crashing down around us.

I’m forced to come clean and share my son with a man I never thought I’d see again.

I didn’t think we’d have forever…


Jacob

My life is nothing like I planned.

As if the death of my mother wasn’t enough, I managed to lose my wife and the roof over my head in one fell swoop. But, my ex’s infidelity isn’t the end of the lies. Returning to my hometown brings a whole new set of obstacles, including a son I never knew I had.

While Lydia’s world is tumbling, I’m realizing this could be my chance at the family I never knew I was missing.

Everything threatens to tear us apart.

I’m fighting for my family, while Lydia is battling her heart.

It’s a vicious game of tug-of-war because life and emotions are never simple. But, we could have had forever, can I convince her we could have it again?

My Review of Change

“All the stuff I never knew I wanted was locked away in that house…”

Oh, man! I thought the first book in this series kept me on my toes, but boy was I in for a real treat with the second book in this series.

Book 2 follows the story of Jacob and Lydia. Their relationship starts off with a bit of an unconventional start. It was supposed to be a summer of fun. No promises. No falling in love. But, life had other plans in store for these two. When Jacob leaves for the job of his dreams, Lydia’s world gets turned upside down in the most unexpected way. It will be 12 years before these two former flames are reunited and once Jacob discovers what he’s missed out on, he’s a man on a mission who will do anything to get Lydia back.

I absolutely loved Jacob and Lydia’s story. It was consuming and entertaining at the same time. It checked off some of my favorite tropes: taboo/forbidden elements, second-chance romance, and surprise baby. The characters were relatable and intriguing. The plot was well-paced and kept me sucked in the entire time. I adored Jacob and Lydia as a couple. Sure they had their imperfections and didn’t always communicate best, but I think that’s what made them so real and relatable. Their road to happily ever after was filled with many obstacles for them to overcome and I thoroughly enjoyed their journey.

Another great read from Allie York. I can’t wait to start book 3.

Chase Blurb

Harriet

In less than a week, I’ve found myself homeless and alone.

What else is a girl to do when life keeps kicking me down? The only thing I know how.

Start over.

With a couple of bags and a scrap of paper, I put myself on a bus and set off across the country to the one friend I know I can turn to.

I had no intention of falling in love.

Then I found a notebook.

Briggs

I’ve always been the underdog. Coming into this world four minutes behind my twin brother Beck has never bothered me. Being burned, both literally and figuratively by Beck is a different story though.

With a failed engagement, a sick mother and a party-boy brother, most of my life is a blur.

Until I see her.

But lots of words and a dark cloud from her past threaten to tear it all apart.

Will she be able to see past the secrets to find who truly admirers her?

My Review of Chase

This is the third book in the Broadway Series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. Book 3 follows the story of Harriet and Briggs. Harriet will capture readers’ hearts instantly with her tough life and free spirit. Everything that could go wrong for Harriet does, and just when she thinks life is going to give her a break, it throws more obstacles her way. Briggs’ life has been anything but easy. He always seems to be in competition with his unworthy brother. I couldn’t help but root for Briggs to find some form of happiness.

Overall, I thought this book was an enjoyable read. I liked Briggs and Harriet together. I thought they had wonderful chemistry and they definitely had me rooting for them. I loved that their story kept me on my toes not only in the romance department, but it also had its fair share of mystery and intrigue. All in all a great addition to this series.

Choose Blurb

Cori

Single mom, fearless, perpetually loveless.

With an ex-husband in prison and a feisty daughter to raise on my own, there was no time for anything else.

Sure, I may have needed a lot of things, but a man was not one of them. In fact, a man was the reason for every bit of misery in my life.

But, when a new girl joins my daughter Axel’s ballet class, with the company of her tall, tatted, sexy and very single dad, my ideas about men start to shift. Getting to know Griffin and his daughter, Celia, makes it harder to ignore not trying my hand at love again.

If only my head and my heart can see that we are worth it.

Griffin

Single dad, inked, badass.

Believe me when I tell you, no one was more surprised than me to find out that I had a kid – a daughter. Five years old when some social worker dropped her in my lap. My life was literally flipped upside down. Instead of late nights with loose women, I found myself home in time for bedtime stories and a house filled with more pink stuff than I could ever imagine.

With my priorities now firmly shifted from fun to family, falling for Cori is easy. Especially when her own daughter, Axel, breaks through Celia’s hard shell.

Now if I could just convince Griffin that one family together is better than two apart.

I’ve got my work cut out for me since we’re all a little tattered & bruised.

My Review of Choose

Book 4 is by far and away my favorite book in this series so far. From the moment you meet Cori and Griffin, you will be immediately captivated by their story. Cori is a single mom with her own share of baggage, just trying to do the best for her daughter. Finding love was the last thing on her mind until Griffin walked into her life. Griffin is best known for his playboy ways, but when he finds out he’s got a daughter he never knew about, he does a complete 360. He would move heaven and earth for his daughter. This former playboy is in for quite the journey and when he sets his sights on Cori, all bets are off.

I absolutely loved Cori and Griffin’s story. I knew one day, Griffin would meet a girl who would turn his world upside down and I am so happy that day has finally come. Cori and Griffin had some insane chemistry that just oozed off of the pages. Both of them had their own share of baggage and obstacles to overcome, but their journey was so worth it. I loved every second of this story from the plot to the romance to the twist that kept me on my toes. My only complaint is that this story came to an end.

Cherish Blurb

Meredith

Okay, maybe running away from my family and moving cross country with my boyfriend was a bad idea. A really bad idea.

For two years I let a man dull my shine and to leave me beaten and broken until I couldn’t take any more.

With a new life growing inside me, I know it’s time for me to go back home, even if my family never forgives me for the hurt I have caused.

The last thing I’m looking for is for someone to save, especially when I’m trying to save myself.

But something about Beck pulls me in.

Beck

I’m a horrible person. I know it and so does everyone else.

Everyday it gets harder to dull the pain and forget the past.

After waking up in a seedy hotel with a woman I don’t even recognize, I’m sure my life isn’t even worth it any more.

I’m just about to end it all when my salvation stumbles into my lap.

Meredith has every reason to push me away. But, I’m determined to prove to her (and myself) that I am the better man.

My Review of Cherish

I can’t believe I’ve finally reached the end of the Broadway Series! It’s been such a fun and wild ride and book 5 doesn’t disappoint.

Meredith returns home after a long two years away when life has thrown her more than she can handle. The last thing she expected was to fall, literally into the hands of another man. Meredith’s life is more complicated than anyone could imagine and when Beck enters the picture, it’s game over. Will Beck turn out to be the knight in shining armor Meredith never saw coming? There’s only one way to find out…

Now I’ll be honest, getting to know Beck from the previous stories, I wasn’t 100% sure about him or whether or not his character could be redeemed, and boy was I glad to be proven wrong. I loved seeing Beck’s world get knocked off its axis. Not only did meeting Meredith change his ways for the better, but it also opened his eyes to a future he never knew he wanted. Meredith certainly wasn’t without her faults. She had her own past and mistakes to make up for and despite the warnings, she heard about Beck, the moment she met him it was like all the stars aligned and I was excited to see how their story would play out.

All in all, I think book 5 is an excellent addition to this series. This story was well-written and entertaining. I thought Meredith and Beck made the perfect match and loved their instant chemistry. Their story was filled with its share of ups and downs, but the journey was worth it in the end. I’m so glad that this author decided to write Beck’s story.

Excerpt from Chance, book one in The Broadway Series

Copyright 2022 Allie York

We hadn’t even made it to the mailbox before the leash was pulled from my hand and the hard plastic was bouncing behind him as he bolted down the street. I growled a series of curses worthy of making a sailor blush and took off in a run after him, screaming his name. Once I caught him, his slow painful death was inevitable. I would kill him and relish every second of it. I lost sight of him as I rounded a corner and skidded to a halt, nearly tripping over a crack in the sidewalk. I spotted him as he ran full-force into someone walking their dog and panicked. It wouldn’t be the first person my idiot dog leveled on a walk.

I took off as fast as I could, yelling at him, only to find the woman holding his leash with a very pissed off expression. I let her place the leash in my hand, doubling over to catch my breath and being assaulted by my own stupid animal. Her sheepdog stood still by her side in statuesque annoyance. I apologized, asking if he had knocked her over, to which she responded with a curt, “No.” The woman held out a card. Fantastic. My horrid beast had run into a dog trainer. A very lovely dog trainer.

Release Blitz with Review: Tempt by Piper Lawson

Tempt by Piper Lawson is now live!

He’s a single dad and my new boss. He’s scorching hot, with gorgeous dark eyes and a smile that makes me burn up every time he looks at me. Too bad he’s ten years older, with trust issues and more layers than my psych degree could ever unwrap.

I shouldn’t fall into bed with him, not to mention let my heart get involved. But he makes me feel things I never expected to feel.

She’s my son’s nanny, and a student at the university where I’m a professor. Seeing her play with my kid, hearing her laugh from the bedroom across the hall, watching her walk by with those legs that would look amazing over my shoulders… it’s the best kind of torment.

I should know better than to pursue this attraction, no matter how intense. I haven’t wanted a woman since my wife died. But she makes me want things I never thought I’d want again.

I need to stay professional, but she’s too tempting.

Tempt is a steamy, swoony forbidden romance in the addictive Off-Limits series. It can be read as a complete standalone!

MY REVIEW

“You’re a game I can’t stop playing. A puzzle I won’t quit solving. I’m obsessed with you and it’s not going away.”

Tempt is a steamy, addictive romance that hits all the marks and leaves readers thirsting for more.

Tempt is the fourth book in the Off-Limits series, but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. When we first meet up with our lead, Kat she’s at a bit of a turning point in her life. Her roommates are all finding love and moving on with their lives. Meanwhile, Kat is just going with the flow, taking one day at a time and trying to figure out what to do next with her life. So, when Daniel asks Kat to consider being his son’s nanny, she’d be foolish to turn him down. This unexpected offer may provide the answers Kat never knew she needed.

From the moment I met Kat and Daniel, I knew I was in for a special treat. Kat was such a special character. She had her share of faults and issues, but there was so much more to this girl than meets the eye and I couldn’t wait to see just her character flourish. And Daniel…Daniel is the swoon-worthy single dad who just wanted to give his son the world. Sadly, he was just going through the paces and didn’t realize how much he was missing out on until Kat entered his life. Together these two steamed up the pages and left me wanting more in the best possible way.

Checking off a lot of my favorite tropes, Tempt was everything I wanted and hoped for. This story was smartly written with entertaining banter. The characters were fun and relatable. The plot was fast-moving and kept me engaged the entire time. I laughed. I swooned. I fell head over heels. If you’re a fan of sexy, single-dad stories with a forbidden romance flare, you won’t want to miss Tempt.

It’s only natural Mr. Handsome presents Rai with a big, shiny rock to make it picture perfect.

MY REVIEW

Where Love Lies is an intriguing thriller that will keep you guessing right until the very end…

When we first meet up with Rain and her daughter Paige, Rain is looking forward to a fresh start in a new town. But when Heston literally crashes into her life, he turns her entire world upside down and gives her way more than what she bargained for.

Where Love Lies is a book best to go in blind with. It starts off as your typical second-chance romance but is filled heavily with mystery and intrigue. The author did an amazing job setting the stage and pulling her readers into the story. I for one couldn’t put this book down and found myself completely immersed in the story. I had to know what would happen next and really enjoyed trying to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together.

If I had to make one complaint, it would be that I thought the ending was a bit rushed. It felt like certain things escalated too quickly and I think if there had been a few more chapters, it would have made the ending feel and flow better.

All in all, this book was an enjoyable thriller that certainly kept this reader on their toes. Even though I had an issue with the overall ending of the story, it’s still a solid read and I’m glad to have checked it out.

Release Blitz with Review: Bittersweet Promises by Carrie Ann Ryan

Release Blitz with Review: Bittersweet Promises by Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan returns with the next generation of Montgomerys and a second chance romance bound in memory and heat.

Leif Montgomery fell hard for Brooke Alder in Paris when they were young, and he thought their fling was just an early taste of what life had in store for him.

But life had other plans, and he didn’t find that kind of love—or see Brooke’s face—for years. 

Until he visits his cousin’s house and sees who’s moved in next door.

They’ve both changed: she’s a struggling single mom, he’s running from a past he’s trying to hide while opening up a new tattoo shop. Yet the moment he sees her again, he knows she’s the one for him.

And with one look, Brooke knows that she can’t fight the desire that pulled them together before, despite the skeletons in both their closets.

MY REVIEW

Bittersweet Promises is the first book in the Montgomery Ink Legacy series and is a second-chance romance that is sure to capture readers’ hearts as they embark on Leif and Brooke’s unforgettable journey.

When we first meet up with Brooke, she’s returned home to Colorado, ready for a fresh start for herself and her son. The last thing she expected was to be reunited with a former flame. You see, Leif and Brooke fell hard and fast for one another when they were in Paris many years ago. But for reasons neither one of them could understand, they ended up parting ways. Fast forward to six years later and fate has once again intervened with this pair. A chance encounter between Brooke and Leif not only stirs up old feelings but also brings some long-awaited questions to the table. Will Leif and Brooke get a second chance at love? There’s only one way to find out….

Bittersweet Promises is a fabulous read from beginning to end. I was sucked into Leif and Brooke’s story from the very first page. I loved what a strong character Brooke was. She was a dedicated mother and had an exciting career. She loved big and loved hard. She wasn’t used to depending on anyone and when Leif stormed back into her world, he certainly gave her a run for her money. And lets talk about Leif. Talk about being a total catch. He was a complete family man and valued everything that he worked for. His life was anything but easy, but he wasn’t afraid of the hard work. And when fate brought Brooke back into his life, he couldn’t help but jump at a second chance. Together, these two were quite a force. I loved their chemistry and the ease of the two of them being together. Sure, they weren’t always perfect and had their share of issues to contend with, but in the end, these two totally grabbed onto my heart and ran away with it.

Bittersweet Promises is a second-chance romance filled with swoon-worthy moments and just enough drama to keep readers on their toes. The Montgomery Ink Legacy series is off to one heck of a start and I am super excited to see where this series will take us next.

Review: A Cosmic Kind of Love by Samantha Young

Review: A Cosmic Kind of Love by Samantha Young

Space is the last thing an event planner and an astronaut need in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.

When event planner Hallie Goodman receives party-inspiration material from the bride of her latest wedding project, the last thing she expects to find in the files are digital videos from Darcy’s ex-boyfriend. Hallie knows it’s wrong to keep watching these personal videos, but this guy is cute, funny, and an astronaut on the International Space Station to boot. She’s only human. And it’s not long until she starts sending e-mails and video diaries to his discontinued NASA address. Since they’re bouncing back, there’s no way anyone will ever be able to see them…right?

Christopher Ortiz is readjusting to life on earth and being constantly in the shadow of his deceased older brother. When a friend from NASA’s IT department forwards him the e-mails and video messages Hallie has sent, he can’t help but notice how much her sense of humor and pink hair make his heart race.

Separated by screens, Hallie and Chris are falling in love with each other, one transmission at a time. But can they make their star-crossed romance work when they each learn the other’s baggage?

MY REVIEW

A Cosmic Kind of Love is a fun and entertaining romantic comedy by author Samantha Young.

A Cosmic Kind of Love follows the story of Hallie and Chris. When event planner, Hallie receives an inspiration file from one of her clients, the last thing she expected were videos of her client’s ex, Chris. Hallie knows it’s wrong, but can’t help but watch the videos and before long, Hallie finds herself making and sending video diaries of her own to Chris. Even when Hallie’s emails bounce back, it doesn’t deter her from putting herself out there. Hallie and Chris’s connection starts out rather unconventional, but somehow these two start to fall for one another one transmission at a time.

Overall, I thought this book was such a cute and unique read. I loved the way that Hallie and Chris’s story started out. It was refreshing and unconventional. I loved getting to know Chris and Hallie. They were perfectly imperfect, with flaws and real insecurities. Their family lives were far from perfect and they were both no strangers to life’s disappointments. I think both of these characters experienced a lot of growth and I loved following their journey to happily ever after.

If I had one complaint about this book it would be that it had a bit of a slow start to it. It seemed to take a bit to really get the flow going, but once it did, I couldn’t put it down.

In the end, Samantha Young delivered a sweet and fun romantic comedy that kept me entertained and unable to walk away.

Review: The Dark King by Gina Maxwell

Review: The Dark King by Gina Maxwell

I thought a weekend away would be the perfect escape. Until I woke up married and trapped… by the king of the Dark Fae.

For Bryn Meara, a free trip to the exclusive and ultra-luxe Nightfall hotel and casino in Vegas should’ve been the perfect way to escape the debris of her crumbling career. But waking up from a martini-and-lust-fueled night to find herself married to Caiden Verran, the reclusive billionaire who owns the hotel and most of the city, isn’t the jackpot one would think. It seems her dark and sexy new husband is actual royalty—the fae king of the Night Court—and there’s an entire world beneath the veil of Vegas.

Whether light or shadow, the fae are a far cry from fairy tales, and now they’ve made Bryn a pawn in their dark games for power. And Caiden is the most dangerous of all—an intoxicating cocktail of sin and raw, insatiable hunger. She should run. But every night of passion pulls Bryn deeper into his strange and sinister world, until she’s no longer certain she wants to leave…even if she could.

MY REVIEW

The Dark King is a sexy and entertaining read that will captivate readers and leave them dying for more!

From the moment I picked up this book, I was hooked. When we first meet up with Bryn, she’s lost her job and has been offered a dream vacation. When she arrives in Vegas, it’s like all the stars are aligned and luck is finally on her side. But when she wakes up the next morning, Bryn gets more than she bargained for…

I was pulled into Bryn and Caiden’s story from the very first page. I loved their meet-cute and spellbinding chemistry. This story was filled with lots of great fantasy elements as well as humor and a take-no-prisoners female lead character. Bryn totally gave Caiden a run for his money and certainly brought out that dominant alpha male side. Together these two not only steamed up the pages but kept me on my toes as their story unraveled.

The Dark King is sexy, fun, and entertaining. I loved the plot and the easy flow of the story. The characters were equally flawed, intriguing, and frustrating all at the same time, and I mean this in the best possible way. I loved the world this author has created. It not only delivered on the steam but also gave me lots of good twists to keep me to glued to the pages. I can’t wait to discover more of this world that this author has created.
