Release Blitz: Screams in Symphony by Kelsey Clayton

Screams in Symphony, the highly anticipated conclusion to The Malvagio Mafia Duet filled with all things dark and dangerous from USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton, is available now!

From USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton comes a dark mafia romance filled with pain, betrayal, devastation, revenge, and a mindblowing ending that will have you questioning everything.

There once was a girl,
tarnished and ruined by the actions of others.
Some are born plagued by darkness,
but she was doused in it by those she trusted.

Like Lucifer himself,
she fell from the heavens and landed amongst the flames.
Now she wears her crown black,
with diamonds coated in the blood of her enemies.

This isn’t the story of a girl who saved the villain.
This is the story of a girl who became something much worse,
and the man who loved her for it.

MY REVIEW

“All I ever wanted was acceptance and unity. All I’d ever been was alone and a tool of chaos.”

“That was the problem for people who created monsters, it was only a matter of time before they turned on their creators.”

“This madness I have for you.” “It’s in my blood.”

Beautiful Nightmare is the heart-pounding and thrilling conclusion to the Dark Dream Series.

Beautiful Nightmare picks up right where Dangerous Temptation left off and once again, hits the ground running. With nothing left to lose, Tiernan will stop at nothing until Bianca is back in his arms. No matter the price, no matter what he has to do, Tiernan is a man with a mission. So, buckle up and get prepared for another wild and crazy ride that only Giana Darling can deliver…

Beautiful Nightmare was everything I was hoping it would be. Filled with secrets, lies, and a quest for revenge, this book leaves no stone unturned. You will be kept on the edge of your seat dying to know what will happen next. The stakes for Bianca and Tiernan are higher than ever, but that doesn’t stop these two from steaming up the pages.

Once again, I was captivated and utterly swept up in the pages of Bianca and Tiernan’s story. Wild horses couldn’t stop me from finishing this book, even if that meant I would devour this book quickly. I was hooked and had to see how things would play out. All I can say is that Giana Darling does not disappoint.

MY REVIEW

Dark Mafia Romance✅

 AntiHero✅

 Kidnapping✅

 Intriguing Plot✅

 Hot Hot Hot✅

Suffer in Silence is the exciting first book in The Malvagio Mafia Duet and has all the ingredients for an unforgettable read. This book is filled with action, danger, and an unexpected romance. 

Saxton is tougher than nails and is just what the doctor ordered for Kage. Kage is everything you’d expect from a Mafia boss. Broody. Arrogant. Fearless. Together these two are an explosive match just waiting to catch fire.

Suffer in Silence was a thrilling and entertaining read, easily devoured in a single sitting. The characters are explosive and definitely keep you on your toes. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and see how it will all come together in the end.

Excerpt

The whiskey swirls around in the cup as I sit at my desk. It’s well past three in the morning but my mind is wide awake. The knowledge of the call I have to make sits heavy on my chest, making it hard to breathe. 

I wanted to leave her out of this, not only for me but for Silas. If he knew what I’m about to do, he’d kill me himself— his relationship with my father be damned. He was right when he told me there is no part of her that belongs in this world. 

She’s too innocent.
Too perfect.
Too good to be tainted by all of this.


And yet I have no choice but to drag her into it—kicking and screaming, I’m sure.
There used to be a time when I would imagine another life for myself. One where I wasn’t the leader of one of the most powerful organizations in the world. One where a family was in the cards for me. One where she wasn’t the most forbidden thing in my life. 

I used to close my eyes and live in that false reality for as long as I could. But it was exactly that. 

A daydream.
An imagination.
An impossible outcome for how my life will go.
And after I do this, I’m only sealing that fate. But as much as it pains me to admit, Nico was right. This is our only option at this point. I will not lose everything my father worked so hard to achieve. 

I grab my phone and down the rest of the glass as I dial the number. It rings three times before a voice comes through the other side. Sleep laces Beni’s tone as I pull him out of a peaceful slumber. 

“Boss?” he asks. 

Closing my eyes, I utter the words and kick into action a plan I’d hoped would always be theoretical. “Execute Plan S. Let me know when it’s done.”

Review: Ruined Castles by Amo Jones

Review: Ruined Castles by Amo Jones

Nothing is going to make sense once you flip open this first chapter. You’re going to wonder why the fuck I made the decisions I did. Why he did what he did. I’m not going to make this easy for you. I’m going to guide you through loops that you’re going to wish I had just skipped, but I’m not going to do that either. You’re going to feel my pain, my loss, and my heart breaking in my chest. You’re going to watch me trip and fall, and get back up again. You’re going to wish you could slap the shit out of Bishop and me, but among all… I’m going to take you back to when I left the love of my life, and ran.
This is an open letter to you.
Good luck.

MY REVIEW

I have been waiting on pins and needles to get my hands on this book. And the moment it hit my eReader I was filled with nervous energy. I was excited.  I was scared. I was not ready. I must have waited two full days before I got the courage to read this book. And let me tell you, Ruined Castles was everything I never knew I needed. I finally got the opportunity to get inside Madison’s head and see why she did the things she did. We’re given one more ride with our favorite ride or die couple and believe me when I say this last ride is a must-read. 

If you’ve come this far in the journey of the Elite Kings Club, you know you must trust the process. The process won’t be easy. It will frustrate and anger you. It will make you want to reach into your e-reader and shake both Bishop and Madison. But, I promise you, the journey is worth it. Every moment of pain, heartache, and angst is worth it. 

Ruined Castles and Madship do not disappoint. As I said, this book was everything I didn’t know I needed and demanded to be devoured in just a few short hours. As sad as I am to see this story come full circle and reach its end, there’s one thing I know, this is not the end. While this chapter may be coming to a close, this won’t be the last of the EKC and I can’t wait to see what Amo Jones has in store for us next!

Excerpt

“What?” I asked after I’d taken a sip from my drink. 

“None of my other bodyguards would ever drink on the job.”

“I’m not really your bodyguard,” I said quietly. The meeting with Giovanni made me resent this charade even more. I wanted to claim Marcella as mine in front of everyone. 

“What are you then?” She stepped closer, an almost challenging gleam in her eyes. I could feel the eyes of half the people in the room settling on us, even the few that hadn’t paid us any attention before. 

“Your noble servant, Snow White,” I said with a wry smile and took another nip from my drink. I had only eyes for the woman in front me now and the way she looked at me, like she considered me hers as much as I considered her mine. 

She shook her head, taking another step closer. “More.”

“I’m more, or you want more?” I asked. 

“Both,” she said quietly, stopping right in front of me. Now we had the attention of pretty much the entire room. 

“Kiss me,” she said, taking me by surprise. Not that I hadn’t been thinking about doing it.

“You sure? Some of these old ladies look as if that’s more action than they got in years. They’ll talk shit about you.”

“I don’t care what they say. You are my man and we’ve hidden it for too long. I’m sick of bowing to their whims, of being a slave to their rules, of hiding. If my family can accept us, then they better do.”

“Snow White, if we do this, I won’t ever let you go. I’ll be yours till I die. You can have my heart, my soul, my life, and everything else you want from me.”

“I’ll take them all,” she said haughtily before her face softened and those luscious lips pulled into a smile. 

I set the glass down, wrapped one arm around Marcella’s slim waist and kissed her, and not a chaste kiss either. I laid my claim on the princess of New York before all of their judgmental eyes, hoping they’d choke on their shock. 

The kiss lasted only for a couple of heartbeats, a fleeting moment in time, but with consequences for the rest of our lives.

Not even the holidays can make a bastard like me feel better.
The guys are all gone for Christmas, but I decide to stay.
I’m hunting a horrific serial killer and I can’t afford to lose him.

I’m regretting that decision when I find her:
Beaten, bloodied, and left out in the snow to die.
Who is she?
That’s the problem. Not even she knows.

And when I discover that she might be the killer’s accomplice, only one thought runs through my mind:
Run.

But there’s nowhere to go. The storm is too heavy.
How can I trust her when she doesn’t even know her own name?
The two of us are trapped here, trying to find out who she really is.

Is she here to kill me? Or have I just saved her life?
The only thing I do know is this:
Baby, it’s fucking cold outside.

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

EXCERPT

Blood stained the hem of my ivory dress, and three small, ruby red dots winked amongst the crystals that encrusted the bodice. No one seemed fazed by the gore on my wedding dress. Not one of the hundreds of people filling the pews so much as murmured about the violence that’d exploded outside the church only minutes ago.

No one cared that my soon-to-be husband was a cold-blooded killer who’d committed murder to claim me for himself.

I didn’t want to marry Sebastián Castillo, the brutal older man who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle. His black eyes flashed when they met mine, his ruggedly handsome features sharpening with something hungry and possessive.

My slow steps toward him faltered, and my ruthless escort’s grip on my arm firmed, the head of my fiancé’s cartel dragging me along to face my fate. My punishment.

I’d betrayed his cartel, and now I was paying for it. I faced a life sentence, forever captive to Sebastián. He would keep me in line, ensure that I never jeopardized their organization again.

Once, I’d thought of him as my savior. He’d protected me when no one else would. No one else ever had.

Now, my fierce protector would be my jailor.

Dread pooled in my belly as I reached the altar. Sebastián’s huge hands engulfed mine. His knuckles were still raw and red from the violence on the church steps, when he’d murdered a rival with his bare hands. All for me. To claim me forever.

The organ music quieted, and the priest began to speak. The words were a meaningless rumble on the edges of my consciousness. All I could focus on was breathing and remaining upright. I kept my gaze downcast, too frightened to look into Sebastián’s dark eyes. I was afraid of what I would find burning in their fierce depths. I was afraid of what it would make me feel.

I hated him. I hated that he was taking my freedom, my fortune. He would take possession of all that was mine, including my body. My virginity.

Even now, my fingers tingled in his gentle grip, electricity dancing between us.

One hand released mine to curl two fingers beneath my chin. The priest had stopped speaking. There was a ring on my finger. It was done, the ceremony that sealed my fate was over.

My eyes lifted to Sebastián’s. White-hot flames flickered in the depths of his dark gaze, and the weathered lines that marked his tanned face were drawn with possessive hunger. The golden light that filled the church gleamed over the silver at his temples and in his close-cropped beard. In my strangely detached state, he seemed to shine with an almost ethereal light. Once, I’d thought of him as my avenging angel.

His face dipped to mine, and his warm lips caressed my mouth. A spark ignited between us, and the tingle in my fingers raced through my entire body, making me dizzy with the visceral rush of desire. I gasped, and a low growl escaped him as he took the invitation to plunder my mouth. His big hand cupped my nape, tipping my head back to claim me more deeply, branding me with his tongue in fierce, domineering strokes. He touched me as though he had every right, as though he owned me. And now, he did.

My husband.

My captor.

My eternity.
