My Review

“I’d loved her for months. Yet it seemed like my entire life. I’d fallen for her as an adult. Yet she’d intrigued me as a child. She’d been born for me. I’d been born for her. We were linked. Joined by fate and history and destiny. Star-crossed, doomed from the start, absolutely forbidden lovers.”

“So much had happened. So much pain and debts and death. But this. A simple kiss in simple coffee shop in a simple world. This made it all worth it. This made it all priceless.”

Final Debt is finally here. The wait is over. As soon as this book hit my kindle, I dropped everything I was doing and dove into this story. I have been waiting on pins and needles to get my hands on this book. To say that I devoured this book is a complete and utter understatement. I was up three hours earlier than I normally would be on a Sunday, just to read this book. I could not put it down. The story and the words just consuming me. And let me tell you, it was worth every moment of lost sleep. As I sit here typing up this review, I am tired. I am exhausted. I am emotionally spent; completely drained. And it was worth every second.

What can I say about Final Debt? Final Debt was everything and more. Final Debt is exciting, intense and utterly captivating. You will be taken for the best ride yet. Your questions will be answered, and secrets will be revealed; some will shock and surprise you. Your jaw will be tired from clenching it with every suspenseful moment. You will be on the edge of your seat waiting, just waiting to see how this will all play out in the end. You will be filled with love, hope and anger; never knowing which emotion will be your next. Your mind will be blown.

I am so sad that this story has come to an end, but what a crazy, wild ride it’s been. Pepper Winters has continuously blown me away with this series; with each book being better than the last one. What she has given me here is an intense, gripping story with a very satisfying ending. Pepper Winters has taken me on the most incredible journey. She has taken me outside my normal little happy box of reading and has made fall in love with characters that I never thought I would. She has made me live and experience a world I never knew existed and one I know I will never forget.

My Review

“What I want is to belong to you. I want the world to know it. I want the ghosts who battled together for so long to hear it. I want us to become one.”

“He made more than just human. He’d made me immortal. Immortal in his love. Immortal in his passion.”

The Indebted Epilogue is truly a little treat. So many times after we finish our favorite stories and get to THE END, we find ourselves wondering just what happens next and did our favorite characters get the ending they deserved? Here’s what I will tell you: This epilogue is for the fans. Any remaining questions that you had, will be answered. You will get to see what happens next and hopefully when it’s all said and done, you will be left with a smile on your face. Pepper Winters, you are an evil genius and all I can say is thank you. Thank you for this story. Thank you for this epilogue. And I certainly can not wait to see what story and characters you will make me fall in love with next!

Excerpt: Final Debt

nila

“READY TO DIE, Nila?”

Cut’s voice physically hurt me as he forced me to my knees. The ballroom splendour mocked me as I bowed unwillingly at the feet of my executioner.

Velvet and hand-stitched crewel on the walls glittered like the diamonds the Hawks smuggled—a direct contrast to the roughly sawn wood and crude craftsmanship of the guillotine dais. No finesse. No pride. Just a raised podium, framework cushioning a large tarnished blade, and a rope dangling to the side.

“Don’t do this. Cut…think about what you’ve become. You can stop this.” My voice mimicked a beg but I’d vowed not to beg. I’d seen things, understood things, and suffered things I never thought I would be able to endure. I refused to cry or grovel. I wouldn’t give him that satisfaction.

“In five minutes, this will all be over, Weaver.” Cut bent to the side and collected a wicker basket.

The wicker basket.

I didn’t want to think about what its contents would be.

He placed it on the other side of the wooden block.

My lungs demanded more oxygen. My brain demanded more time. And my heart…it demanded more hope, more life, more love.

I’m not ready.

Not like this.

“Cut—”

“No. No more talking. Not after everything you’ve done.” Ripping a black hood from his pocket, he didn’t hesitate. No fanfare. No second guesses.

I cried out as the scratchy blackness engulfed my face, tightening by a cord around my throat.

The Weaver Wailer chilled me. The diamond collar that’d seen what I’d seen and whispered with phantoms of my slain family prepared to revoke its claim and detach from around my neck.

This was it.

The Final Debt.

Cut pushed my shoulders forward.

A heavy yoke settled over the top of my spine.

I closed my eyes.

I said goodbye.

I waited to die.

One Week Earlier

“NO!”

I pushed back, gripping the handrails of the private jet, throwing my weight against Daniel’s incessant pushing. “Stop!”

“Get up the fucking stairs, Weaver.” Daniel jabbed his elbow into my spine.

I stumbled, bashing my knee against the high tread. “You can’t do this!” How had this happened? How had mere hours turned the entire universe against me? Again.

I wanted to smash every clock. Tear out the cog from every watch.

Time had once again stolen my life.

Jethro!

Daniel cackled. “I think you’ll find we can.” He shoved me higher.

My heart hurt—as if every mile between us and Hawksridge was a blade slicing me further from Jethro’s protection—a disharmony in an already discorded symphony.

One moment, I’d been love-bruised and adored, tiptoeing back into the Hall; the next, I was trapped, forced to dress in jeans and a hoodie, and obey Daniel as he lurked in my doorway, barking orders to pack a few meagre belongings.

He hadn’t left me alone.

His eyes followed my every move. I couldn’t grab the gun I’d hidden thanks to Jasmine. I couldn’t text Jethro to tell him I’d been caught. All I could do was run around my room with my lover’s release still damp on my inner thighs and submit to my nemesis.

The only saving grace was beneath Daniel’s hateful stare, I’d managed to pack the clothing I’d altered a few weeks ago. The cuffs full of needles and hems armoured with tools of my seamstress trade. Those garments were my only hope. There was no loophole. No way to refuse.

I had to trust Jasmine would get word to Jethro. That he would come for me…

Before it’s too late.

The desolation I’d suffered when Daniel first caught me faded to indignant anger. I’d been so close to being free. I’d been in Jethro’s arms. I’d been away from his psychotic family. My heart hardened a little toward Jethro for making me go back.

Why? Why did you send me back?

I didn’t know if I’d have the courage to forgive him.

You know why. And you will. Of course, you will.

I couldn’t hate him because I wasn’t selfish. He’d sent me back to protect all of us. Those precious few who’d accepted him and he’d accepted in return. Love was the worst enemy, winding its commitment, ensuring no freedom when it came to clearheaded thinking of adversity.

Jethro loved too much. Felt too much. Suffered too much. And his siblings would be our downfall. Kestrel and Jasmine relied on him—just like I did. The responsibility of settling his family’s wrongs was a terrible burden to bear.

But he’s not alone.

I might’ve been stolen. Jethro’s plans to save me might be ruined. But I was still alive. Still breathing. I wasn’t the naïve girl who’d first arrived at Hawksridge. I was a woman in love with a Hawk. A Weaver who would draw Hawk blood.

It’s not over…

Pain exploded in my spine as Daniel stabbed me with his fist. “Get in the fucking airplane.”

“No!” I threw myself backward, looking frantically at the private hangar. We weren’t at Heathrow, but a small, private airfield called Turweston. “I won’t!”

No strangers I could call for help.

No police or air marshals.

When Daniel had stalked me from my room and shoved me outside, Cut had been waiting. With a victorious smile, he’d stuffed me in the back of a limousine.

With a purring engine, we’d pulled away from Hawksridge, tyres crunching on gravel as we followed the long driveway off the estate.

My eyes had scoured the trees, their silhouettes growing stronger as the sun tinted the sky with pink blushes. Daniel and Cut sat opposite me, toasting each other with a chilled bottle of champagne. However, I hadn’t been alone on my side of the limo—I had a guard.

Marquise, Bonnie’s damn henchman, sat beside me; a mountain of muscle, unyielding and impenetrable.

“Come along.” A strange voice raised my gaze.

A man in a captain’s uniform smiled from the top of the aircraft steps. The private plane’s fuselage glinted in graphite grey. Sparkling diamonds, inlaid in the shape of a windswept ribbon, decorated the tail.

“I don’t want to leave England.”

Daniel laughed behind me. “Like you have a choice.”

“I always have a choice, Buzzard.” I glowered over my shoulder. “Just like this choice of yours will not end well for you.”

If I don’t kill you, Jethro will.

As far as Daniel knew, his slain brother was supposedly rotting in some unmarked grave. Jethro was right. The element of surprise trumped any of Cut and Daniel’s grand delusions.

He snarled, “Watch it, bitch. Everything you say to me here will be paid in full when we’re there.”

“Now, now. No need for threats.” The captain climbed down a rung, holding out his hand. “She’ll get on board. Won’t you, my dear? No need to be afraid of flying. I have an exemplary record.” White hair tufted from either side of his pristine flying cap. In his mid-fifties, he looked fit and toned and impatient to take off.

“I can’t leave.”

I can’t be so far from Jethro.

The captain smiled, waving at his vessel. “Of course, you can. Plus, I bet you’ve never travelled in such style.”

“It’s nothing against your mode of transport. It’s the destination I disagree to. I’m staying here.” I dug my heels into the metal grate, fighting against Daniel’s perpetual pushing. “I don’t have my passport, visa… I can’t travel across borders, so you might as well let me return home.”

Home.

Had Hawksridge Hall become my home?

No, don’t be absurd.

But Jethro had. It didn’t matter where we ended up. What we did for work. How our lives panned out. As long as I was alive with Jethro by my side…I would be home.

“Don’t fuss about that.” The captain waved his hand in invitation. “Travel is good for the soul.”

Not my soul.

Travel meant my soul would become untethered from my body, thanks to Cut and the Final Debt.

The sun barely peeked over the horizon, hidden by soupy fog and reluctant night. The world refused to warm, unable to shed the morning frost or dislodge the claws of winter. England didn’t want to say goodbye as much as I did, its reluctant dawn wanting me to stay.

“If you don’t get on the motherfucking plane in two seconds, Weaver, you’ll live to regret it,” Daniel growled.

I glared at the youngest Hawk. “Haven’t you learned by now your threats don’t scare me?”

Forcing myself to stand taller, I hid the quaking in my bones, the quivering in muscles, the rampant terror scurrying in my blood. “I know where you want to take me, and I refuse.”

Daniel pinched the bridge of his nose. A second later, he cuffed me on the back of the head. “Behave!”

I gritted my teeth against the wash of agony.

“Almasi Kipanga is a fucking treat for the likes of you, Weaver. Get on your knees and show some goddamn appreciation. Otherwise, I’ll rip out your fucking tongue and ensure peace for the rest of the trip.”

“Ah, as I said, there’s no need for violence.” The captain took another step, prying my hand off the railing and tugging me upward. “Come along, my dear. Let’s get you inside. And don’t you worry about visas and things. Leave it to me. Airport control won’t be an issue.”

Vertigo cast the world in monochromatic greys as I swayed toward the captain. “But—”

Cut barrelled past Daniel—reaching the end of his patience. Grabbing my arse, he shoved me upward, forcing me like unwilling livestock up the final steps. “I have your passport, Nila. Get on the plane.” His breath skated over the back of my neck. “And don’t think about refusing again. Got it?”

Gripping the fuselage, I looked over my shoulder. “My passport? How did you—”

He waved a black binder in my face. “Everything is in here. You have no more excuses, and I won’t ask again. Get on the fucking plane or I’ll knock you out and you can wake up when we get there.”

One Hot Chef….

Eric Vail has always loved a challenge. After leaving the Navy, he mastered his passion for cooking. As the sous chef at Top, one of Dallas’s hottest restaurants, his skills are pushed to the limit every night. Unfortunately, his ultimate prize still eludes him. Server Deena Holmes is the sweetest thing he’s seen in forever, but she’s as distant as she is beautiful. When they’re put together in the same training class at the infamous club Sanctum, he knows this is his shot. And this former SEAL never misses.

A Woman Who Lost Her Taste for Love…

Deena thinks Eric is the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but her heart has been burned too many times before. She’s sworn off relationships for good and she can’t trust herself with a man that easy to fall in love with. She takes a spot as a trainee at Sanctum in the hopes of finding a safe place to explore and experiment. When she discovers her partner is the same chef she dreams about every night, Deena knows she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

A Perfect Recipe for Passion

While exploring the world of Sanctum, Eric and Deena find themselves learning about each other and finding an intimacy neither expected. But when the ghosts of her past resurface, old wounds are reopened. Can their newfound love survive when it’s put to the test?

My Review

“He was the deep end of the pool and she wasn’t ready to jump in.”

Just One Taste was my first book by Lexi Blake, so I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into. I was intrigued by the synopsis and just had to check it out. What I got was a really fun, sexy and entertaining read. This is one of those books that I would consider a guilty pleasure. The story-line was entertaining and pulled you in from the very beginning. The characters were fun and had excellent chemistry. They had me wanting to know what was going to happen next.

Just One Taste was a quick sexy read. I enjoyed every second of it from start to finish. I loved Lexi Blake’s take on BDSM. Eric and Deena were scorching together. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. Overall, I really enjoyed this read and would definitely be open to checking out more books from this author in the future!

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review*


Excerpt:

“Why? Why would you want me?” All her arrogance was gone.

“Because we’re friends and I like you and you’re gorgeous. I’ve wanted to sleep with you from the moment I saw you. That might not be what you want to hear, but it’s the truth. I think we could be good for each other. Neither one of us has had a lover in a long time. Am I right?”

“You’re right,” she replied. “I haven’t even dated anyone since my divorce.”

“Then why not try? If it doesn’t work, we’ll go back to being friends.”

Her head shook. “That never happens.”

“I don’t know what kind of douchebags you’ve been dating, but I’m still friends with almost every woman I’ve ever dated. It doesn’t have to end in either happily ever after or hate. Especially if we’re both honest. The contract is for six weeks. I can promise you right now that I’m still going to like you after six weeks. You be honest with me. Were you planning on experimenting with your training Dom if you’d had chemistry with him? Before you knew I was the Dom. Would you have given that Dom a chance?”

She nodded silently.

“Well, then I suppose we’ll have a very abstinent training period and then we’ll go our separate ways when it comes to the club. I guess Big Tag and the shrink aren’t as smart as they think they are.” He wasn’t about to give up. This was only the beginning of a very long battle, but it was time to retreat. “We’ll talk about the contract later tonight and set up all the rules. I’ll still have to touch you during the scenes, but I’ll make it as impersonal as possible.”

“We don’t know that we have chemistry,” she said quietly, making no move to grab the bags.

He shrugged. “I guess we won’t know.”

He turned to begin helping her. He would take the bags out to her car and then let Grace know she was on her way. Someone would meet her in the parking garage to help her bring everything up. He would spend the afternoon planning menus with Chef and heading to the farmer’s market to find fresh vegetables for dinner.

A hand on his arm gently pulled and he turned.

Deena was standing right there, her face turned up to him, her eyes wide. “Shouldn’t we know?”

She went on her toes and pressed her mouth to his. He went still, unwilling to frighten her away. Soft lips moved over his as her hands found his waist. She was tentative, but he could sense the fire in her. Those hands told the real tale. They moved restlessly, as though she had them on a leash. He wanted that leash taken off.

When she ended the kiss and stared up at him, he decided to go for broke. She wanted to see if they had chemistry? He could show her how volatile they could be.

“My turn,” he whispered before he took control. His hands slid up her neck, fingers sinking into the soft, silky strands of her hair.

He kissed her, moving his lips over hers, commanding her. The minute he took control those hands of hers started to move, sliding up the muscles of his back, her body pressing in. He felt her relax as though happy to not be the one in charge. Deena could take control of a room of diners and work that floor with an iron will, but she was shy about this. She needed him to take charge of the physical part.

He could do that. It wouldn’t be sexy if she weren’t so together in the rest of her life. He kissed her again and again, his tongue finally moving over her full bottom lip. She groaned and her mouth opened, welcoming him inside.

The kiss turned wild, their tongues playing against each other as their bodies came together. He could feel her rubbing against him. He would bet her body was soft, her pussy already getting slick and ready for him.

He was so ready for her.

And if he took her right here on the prep table, she would likely run away forever. She wasn’t ready. Not even close.

He broke off the kiss, brushing his lips lightly against hers one last time. He’d promised her control. It was damn iron will that got him to take his hands off her. She was so sweet looking with her hair mussed and her lips puffy from kissing. This was how he wanted to see her all the time. Sweet and willing and ultimately satisfied.

Satisfaction would have to wait.

“We have plenty of chemistry, sweetheart.”

The Last Book in the New York TImes Bestselling Dark Romance Series. Where love tries to triumph and darkness continues to reign….
“I’m in love with her, but it might not be enough to stop her from becoming the latest victim of the Debt Inheritance. I know who I am now. I know what I must do. We will be together—I just hope it’s on Earth rather than in heaven.”

It all comes down to this.

Love versus life.

Debts versus death.

FINAL DEBT – TEASER!

NILA WEAVER

“NO!”

I pushed back, gripping the handrails of the private jet, throwing my weight against Daniel’s incessant pushing. “Stop!”

“Get up the fucking stairs, Weaver.” Daniel jabbed his elbow into my spine.
I stumbled, bashing my knee against the high tread. “You can’t do this!”

Daniel cackled. “I think you’ll find we can.” He shoved me higher.

My heart hurt—as if every mile between us and Hawksridge was a blade slicing me further from Jethro’s protection.

Time once again stole my life.

One moment, I’d been love-bruised and adored, tiptoeing back into the Hall; the next I was trapped, forced to dress in jeans and a hoody, and obey Daniel as he lurked in my doorway, barking orders to pack a few meagre belongings.

My pussy ached from having Jethro inside me. The dampness of his release still decorated my inner thighs. My mind raced, doing my best to see a loophole, figure out a way to stay.

I hadn’t had time to shoot him with the gun Jasmine gave me. I couldn’t scream and shout and hope to God Jasmine heard me so at least she could warn Jethro.

I couldn’t even text Kite with Daniel lurking over my every move.
The only hope I’d had was packing the altered clothing where I’d sewn knitting needles and scalpels into the hem and cuffs, hiding weapons in case I was taken by surprise.

I wanted to cry for my forward thinking.

The few hopeless weapons would be my only ally.

Two days.

I would’ve been free in two days.

Now…I was a true Debt Inheritance Victim, walking her final steps…

to the guillotine.

Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.

Full length book. Six in series. Fourth Debt is 85,000 words.

My Review

“Minute by minute, my anger solidified. The Hawks had been untouchable for long enough. They believed no amount of treason or rebellion could dethrone them. They were wrong. Their reign was over. It was time for a new ruler. One who stood for justice rather than debt. One who would avenge those she’d lost. They’ve underestimated me. And they would die because of it.”

Fourth Debt picks up right where Third Debt left off. Living in a world without Jethro and Kes is almost unbearable for Nila. Her will to survive is gone. She doesn’t want to be in this life without her love. “The further apart we became, the less human I felt. It was as if the tether binding us would snap at any moment, leaving me smarting, empty, and alone.” She comes so very close to breaking, and almost does until she realizes that she must end what the Hawks have started. She not only needs to free her family from the debt inheritance, but also get avenge Jethro and Kes…..

I absolutely loved Nila in this book. Her strength and determination was so inspiring. She fought like hell to live; to take back her life and end the rule of the Hawks. Nila faced so many ups and downs in Fourth Debt. Everything she endured in the first four books are like a cake walk for what lies ahead for Nila. My mind can not even fathom having the strength and willpower to endure what she did. “TIME WAS MY worst enemy. Nothing good ever came from time. It passed too quickly–good moments and happy memories gone in a blink. Or it passed to slowly–bad experiences and unhappy circumstances dragging for an eternity.”

After finishing this book, I have a better understanding of both sides of the story. The things that the Weaver women had to endure in the past were eye opening. The fact that it was able to go on year after year, decade after decade was just mind blowing. That something like this could happen, that lawyers could be brought in and make these contracts and dealings “legal”. That people who were supposed to uphold the law and fight for the innocent, allowed these terrible things to continually take place. It’s impossible to wrap your mind around it.

There’s not much I can say as I really want to keep this review spoiler free. Here’s what I can tell you: This book will take you on one crazy ride. Whatever you think you know, wipe that from your mind right now. This story has so many twists and turns. It will leaving you holding your breath and clenching your jaw. This story will captivate and consume you. It will demand that every word be devoured, refusing to loosen it’s grips on you until you get to the very last page. And boy, let me tell you, in true Pepper Winters fashion, that last page is a doozy!

It’s all come down to this. Everything has been leading to this point. I am desperate to find out what happens next. Has time finally caught up with Nila? Will Nila finally be able to free her family from the Debt Inheritance? I can not wait to see how everything will come together in the end. Once again, Pepper Winters has blown my mind and left me begging for more!

Excerpt

vaughn

FUNNY HOW LIFE plays practical jokes.

The past few days—that had to be a fucking joke, right?

No logical answer would make sense of what I’d seen, heard, and lived the past seventy-two hours.

My sister.

My best friend and twin.

This was what she’d been living with? This was how she’d been treated?

This was what she wanted to return to?

Motherfucking why? Why would she ever want to return to this insanity?

We’d been raised in a broken home, chained to an empire that absorbed us right from birth. But we were kept safe, warm, and loved. We grew up together. We shared everything.

But now…I had no fucking clue who my sister was.

But then she came to me.

A woman I never knew existed.

The most stunning creature I’d ever seen.

Only she didn’t come to me on feet or wings of an angel. She rolled into my life and demanded my help.

And for better or for worse…

I helped her.nila

“LET ME GO!”

Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.

I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.

“Take me back!”

He can’t be dead!

Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.

That’s exactly what it means.

I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.

I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.

It’s always been that way.

My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?

He’s not dead!

I swallowed a sob.

Please don’t be dead…

I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”

Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”

He’s not dead!

I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”

Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…

Please let my twin stay alive…

Let all of this be a nightmare!

I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.

“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”

Cut will die.

He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.

I refuse to believe they’re dead.

“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.

It can’t end like this!

“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”

Blog Tour and Review: Wicked Fall (The Wicked Horse #1) by Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Fall (The Wicked Horse Series Book #1)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: July 28, 2015

Synopsis:

Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.

He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.

Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

My Review

Hold on to your hats ladies, this book will take you on one very HOT ride!! Sawyer Bennett has really knocked it out of the park with this one. Wicked Fall is HOT, sexy, naughty and down right entertaining. If you’ve read Shaken, Not Stirred, then you will remember that we briefly met Wolfe Jennings. He is the brother of Tenn and this is his story….

Wolfe is a rancher by day and at night, he makes your wildest dreams and fantasies come true. See, Wolfe is one of the owners of The Wicked Horse. The Wicked Horse is a dream that both Wolfe and his college buddy had and Wolfe has made their dream come true. Their company isn’t for everyone and only the ones who can pay the hefty price can know what goes on at the silo at The Wicked Horse. Wolfe thought he had everything under control and that he was living the dream until Callie blew back into town. Callie was the one who got away. Wolfe has been in love with Callie for as long as he can remember, but never thought he was good enough for her. And now that Callie is back, she’s got him thinking of things that he thought he’d never want….Callie has come back home looking for a fresh start. She is recently broken up with her cheating fiancee and is looking for a change. The last thing she was anticipating was running into Wolfe again. What will happen when these two reunite? Will Wolfe take a chance on Callie or will he be dumb enough to let her get away again?

I am just going to keep my review short and sweet. Wicked Fall is one scorching hot read. Sawyer Bennett really kicked up the sexy and steam factor with this one and I loved it. Wicked Fall was fun and entertaining. You know the phrase what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Well, in Wicked Fall, it should be What Happens at the Silo, stays at the Silo.

I was hooked on the characters and the story from the very first page. I found the story-line to be so intriguing, I had to know more. And the more I read, the more I couldn’t put it down. Sawyer Bennett does not disappoint in this one. This book is dirty, sexy, naughty and a whole lot of fun! Wicked Fall is the first book in The Wicked Horse Series and let me tell you, this series is off one heck of a scorching start. I can not wait to see where Sawyer Bennett will take us next!

Review: With Visions of Red, Book 2 by Trisha Wolfe

Title: WITH VISIONS OF RED (Broken Bonds #2)

Author: Trisha Wolfe

Release Date: July 16, 2105

Genre: Erotic Thriller / BDSM

goodreads

Blurb

The UNSUB has made contact.

After a rapid string of grisly murders shakes the usually peaceful city of Arlington, Virginia, the sadistic killings of young women lull into a deceptive calm. Agent Sadie Bonds knows the terror isn’t over; serial killers don’t stop until caught.

And this sadist has targeted the profiler, revealing pieces of her dark past and weaving her secrets into each gruesome crime scene. Is the killer someone from Sadie’s past, her present? Or is he part of a fated future she brought on herself? The answer lies within the riddle of the copycat killings, ones mimicked after the infamous Blood Countess.

As tension brews in the department awaiting the UNSUB’s next move, Sadie’s more than on edge—her deviant cravings for the possible perpetrator have ratcheted out of control. She needs the feel of Colton’s ropes binding her, sheltering her from stark reality.

Only Colton Reed has his own twisted secrets that threaten to unravel not only Sadie as they come to light, but the UNSUB’s carefully constructed web now entangling both the profiler and her sexy bondage rigger.

Is Sadie too close to this case to be objective, or is the UNSUB closer to her than she ever imagined…


My Review

“Chaos is such an unruly fiend. Some want to believe their actions-no matter how inconsequential-have not influence on a catastrophe. Blame chaos. She’s the merciless mother, the creator of such heartache. It’s all out of our control.

You always worry when there is more than one book in a series. Will it be as good? Will it live up to my expectations? Well, I have to tell you, With Visions of Red Book 2, exceeded my expectations.

When we last left Sadie, she was filled with strength and determination to face her fears. In Book 2, Sadie is working harder than ever to discover who the UNSUB is. With more murders happening, Sadie finds herself on edge more than ever, trying to escape the bonds her fear has over her. Only Colton can bring her a sense of calm. But, Colton has some serious secrets of his own. When all is revealed will Sadie still be by Colton’s side?

With Visions of Red, Book 2 picks up right where book 1 leaves off. I am again, sucked into the story. I am desperate for the truth. I need to know who the UNSUB is. Why is he seeking out Sadie? Is there a connection to the two of them?  It seems for every answer we get, there is always more questions. “The rabbit hole I’ve tumbled down becomes darker, deeper, pulling me into the hollowness. I can’t find purchase along the dirty walls as I reach and claw. There is only down.” The journey that Trisha Wolfe takes you on is mind-blowing. It feels so real. It is like you are looking through a window, watching the story happen, instead of sitting in your home reading it.

There is so much tension between Colton and Sadie in Book 2. Colton is hiding a very damaging secret. A secret that threatens to ruin everything. He needs to tell Sadie the truth. But his fear has him holding back. Sadie still hasn’t clued Colton in on her disturbing past. She knows she has to, but once again, fear is playing a major part in both of their lives. “But there’s a deep, dark fear that levels them all. Fear of loss. The climbing panic that clutches you whole and won’t let you drag in a breath the higher it escalates. That all-consuming fear.”

“Our relationship operates on a different level of rules and trust. We’re not blind in the dark; we seek it out. We crave it.” Colton and Sadie’s relationship will be tested in many ways in this book. They say the truth will set you free, but in Colton and Sadie’s case, it’s trust. If they can both learn to trust each other, than they can both be free. There is a scene towards the end with Sadie and Colton, that completely blows my mind. I’m not going to go in to the details, but it’s something you need to experience for yourself. However, I will say this, this scene: It’s dark, it is erotic, it is intense. It is beautiful in it’s own way. It has to happen for you to see, for you to understand the depth of the love and connection between the two of them. “Break these bonds with me. Break them and bind me to you.” It really shows you just how intense their bond is. Days later, I am still thinking about it.

The ending…Does it end with a cliffhanger? It does and it doesn’t. I had a feeling something bad was going to happen and the way the end was delivered….Let’s just say, it had me begging  and screaming for more. I can not wait to see how it all comes together.

With Visions of Red, Book 2 is an amazing follow up to Book 1. I love this story because I never know what’s going to happen next. I could guess, but I won’t even try. I am really enjoying watching how this story will unravel. I still don’t have a clear answer as to who the UNSUB is. I have my suspects narrowed down, one sticks out more than the others and man do I want to be right. The UNSUB, does not disappoint. He is twisted. He is creepy. He scares me, but at the same time, he intrigues me. And the fact that he could be anyone…..

With Visions of Red takes you on one exciting ride. The writing is smart. The story fascinating. The characters have amazing chemistry and are completely intriguing. This book has left me spellbound, desperate for answers and anxious for the truth. I can not wait to see how this story will wrap up and to finally find out who the UNSUB is.

Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers’ heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way—because it’s safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that’s how she’s coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.

She will never be a victim again.

Now, she’s honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie’s head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.

When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.

Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who’s really pulling the strings.

My Review

“Obsession. It starts with a spark. A flicker. At the strike of a match. Lying dormant in most of us, obsession feasts on the fumes, breathes int he smoky scent, curing around and in on itself. Building. We pet it, nurse it into existence. It is ours. All ours. A coveted perfection. And when it refuses to be ignored, it rages. It roars to life. A building inferno. Consuming. We are but pawns to its deceptive power. Though we attempt to guide it, caress it tenderly int a loving beauty, it can not be controlled. It’s a haunted, vengeful lover. Like a wildfire devouring life within it’s path, we can only follow it’s carnal trail.”

When I first heard about this idea, I was beyond stoked. I love books that challenge me. That take me out of my comfort zone. With Visions of Red is a dark and intense read. This is something so different from what Trisha Wolfe usually gives us, and I could not wait to dive in.

With Visions of Red starts off with a bang. I was pulled in and on the edge of my seat from the very first page. The prologue: so intense. I couldn’t pull my eyes away from the pages. I had to read what was happening. I was completely captivated by what Sadie was going through. I knew when I got through that prologue that this book was going to be amazing and let me tell you, Trisha Wolfe did not disappoint.

As I already stated, this book is so different than anything Trisha Wolfe has given us before. She took a huge risk and in my opinion, it paid off. I was so impressed with the way Trisha got inside the Unsub’s head. I felt like I was right along side him, living his thoughts, feeling what he’s feeling. I was so captivated by the story-line. At times, it felt like I was watching an episode of Law and Order: SVU. It was that good!

With Visions of Red is well written and captivating. It is dark, it is sexy, it is intense. The characters have amazing chemistry. They are so easy to connect with, so easy to get lost in. You will find yourself asking questions, and believe me, I have a lot of them. You will try your hardest to figure out what is going on and you will be waiting in anticipation to see what will happen next.

The ending….let’s talk about that for a minute. I think things wrapped up pretty nicely. There is no huge cliffhanger, but more like a stay tuned. My curiosity is definitely peaked. I’m left wanting more. I need to know more. I need to know who the unsub is. And Sadie, I felt such a strong strength and determination from her. She’s got to finally face the past and her fears.

With Visions of Red is an exciting, heart-pounding new series from Trisha Wolfe. I’m excited to see where the next book will take us. I can’t wait to find out what lies ahead for Sadie. I just can’t wait to read more.
