Leona was raised by two dysfunctional parents one addicted to drugs the other addicted to gambling a bad combination, a loveless upbringing. 

They met by chance..On a rainy day she's new to the city and he's the man that picks her up, she knows nothing about the man she sat beside as he drove her to a rough part of Las Vegas where she's currently living with her estranged father because her mother is back in rehab. 

All she saw was a young guy in his twenties wearing a nice suit and driving a flash car, all he saw was a poor girl in shabby clothes and a backpack. But she'd caught his attention as soon as his eyes landed on her. 

There's something about her that has Fabinano wanting to protect her, he can't stay away from her, but will she run in the other direction when she finds out what he is? Who he is? 

A cage fighter that hones his skill, death matches that keeps the fear in people's eyes, they owned the town, they controlled the nightclubs, bars, restaurants and casinos, from cage fighting to street racing they had their hands in everything. 


but not in begging for mercy there was honor in death

What happens when your loyalty is questioned as Fabiano finds out in this book, when a female has him all twisted up and divided who does he remain the most loyal to? The girl that crawled under his skin or his brothers? The poor little waitress and he, the big deal mobster. 

I have been on such a good run of 5 star after 5 star reading new to me authors and this one is no exception. I loved this one, add in it's surrounded in the mafia world I was not going to say no to reading it, straight away the author pulled me into the story, it flowed ceaselessly, I connected to the characters, and absolutely fell in love with them, she was sweet and innocent and he was a ruthless killer with many kills under his belt, they should never have worked but they did perfectly. I devoured this, just enough blood and gore, which ticked my box, and the slow burn of their romance had me not wanting their journey to end. I am so glad I took the chance to read this book. Highly recommend.

DECEPTION AND CHAOS: 
Is the first full length novel within the (Chaos #1 ) series by new to me author S.M. Soto. 

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious content, strong language, and graphic violence. May contain triggers for abuse victims. 

This is one of the most hardest reviews I'm going to have to write up, so much happens in this book, but one thing that stands above it all is the darkness you get thrown into, go into this being aware of that aspect because this author does not hold back..I'll try and keep this as spoiler free as I can. 


So here goes..Straight away we’re thrown into the dark and gritty situation Sophia finds herself in, captured and held in a dingy basement, brutalised beyond anything she could’ve imagined, flayed, scared beyond belief. Repeated words racing through her mind, “why me?” It's like I'm stuck in a bad dream, and no matter how hard I try, I can't wake up.

Twenty-four year old Sophia has lived relatively like a hermit, she keeps to herself, she’s never in trouble, works two jobs, and is a full time student. But she's always cloaked in sadness after losing both her parents at the age of thirteen tragically in a plane crash, leaving her brother Garrett, to raise her. He's her one constant in life, the only person she can rely on, the only person she loves beyond belief. 

The night she's to be brought onto a stage to be sold is when all chaos breaks loose, murder and mayhem everywhere, she's barely hanging on by a thread, and it's beyond her wildest dreams that she's been saved. 


This point right here is where lies become uncovered, a love like no other is found, soul mates clinging to each other in secrecy and all the feels in the world will come rushing at you. 



So here's how the story goes, straight away your thrown into the point where she's been captured, it's dark, it's gritty, it's not glossed over, it's right there in your face with no escape unless you stop reading, but who in their right mind would do that?! Hello!! Not me!!
Then your lulled into a false sense of security, all loved up, all the feels, never wanting it to end.
BUT end it does BOOM!! A twist that had even me in shock and then I'm faced with one of the most biggest cliffys I've fallen over in a long time.. GAH why oh why do I do this to myself!!
Bugger me so the countdown and stalking begins for the next release!!

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five- time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world. T.M. enjoys writing what she calls sexy‘wrongside of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines. Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay. She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please don’t pinch her because she's not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.

There are angels and demons at war inside my head.

I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation was her. 

Grace Miller. 

The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my breath with just a look. 

Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly, my ruin.

“Can I ask you something? It’s totally fine to say no.” She adds the last part quickly. She smiles and looks at the spot over my shoulder, her fingers tapping a quick beat on the table. She looks vulnerable, her eyes wide, allowing me to see how nervous she is. I mean, how can I say no to her?
“Sure.” I settle back on the seat and stretch my arms along the back of it.
“Can I . . . can I kiss you?” Her eyes snap back to mine, and she hurriedly adds, “I know you’re heading to Boston in a few weeks and—” She sucks in a deep breath. “I really want to kiss you. I promise I won’t try to do anything else. Just kiss you.”
Holy. Shit.
I take a deep breath, letting her words sink in, and realize I’m breathing faster than normal. My gaze falls on her mouth, and I literally stop breathing because that mouth, God help me. It’s like a gateway to a whole new galaxy where secrets and wishes are waiting to be unveiled.
I need to kiss her. I want to discover the universe beyond those full lips. I’ve been fighting the need to kiss her since I walked inside the diner and saw her wiping down the counter. But my brain is telling me it’s a bad idea and kissing her will irrevocably change me. Change my life. I know I won’t be able to come back from that. But the other part of me, the part that has a hopeless, desperate crush on this girl, just wants to drag her onto my lap and let her do whatever she wants.
“It’s getting late. We should probably lock up and leave,” she says in a small voice when I take too long to reply. She pushes her hair back before standing up and starting to stack our plates together. Her gaze meets mine briefly. “Look, I’m sorry I made this awkward. It’s not fair to you—”
I reach out, curling a finger through the belt loops on her jean shorts, and tug. But she doesn’t move toward me. Instead, her grip around the plates grows tighter, and she turns to leave.
“Gracie.” I tighten my hold, forcing her to set everything back on the table and look at me. “Come here.”
I pull her close while placing my other hand on her hip. Then, I slide both hands in the back pockets of her shorts, pulling her closer until all I can see is her face and her lips—so close to mine.
Her chest rises and falls quicker than before, and I realize mine’s doing the same. We stare at each other. I wonder if she regrets asking to kiss me. That thought makes my chest ache. Right now, in this moment, with my face inches away from her boobs, I’d do anything for a chance to know what she tastes like. My fingers skim along her arm and bury themselves in her hair. She trembles against me, so I know she wants this as much as I do.
Earlier today after leaving work, I drove home. My mind was preoccupied, and I was restless, so after taking a shower, I got into my car. And somehow, I found myself parking the truck outside the diner. Maybe this is why I came here; I don’t know. But I really want to find out.
“Do it.” My voice is a whisper. I’m almost breathless with want. I want to yank her down and kiss her myself, but she looks like she’s about to flee. So I let her come to me. “Kiss me.”
She sinks her teeth in her bottom lip as she comes closer. I’m glad I’m sitting down because my knees are shaking with anticipation. Then her lips touch mine, her eyes on me the whole time. Need has my fingers tightening in her hair as she presses her lips more firmly to mine. Her tongue peeks out, running along the seam of my lips. I groan and shift on the seat to ease the discomfort in my pants. My mouth opens, and the second her tongue touches mine, my body rattles with a shiver. This moment feels sacred. Like a blessing. It feels blasphemous and holy all at once. It scares me.
Tugging her into my lap, I fist her hair in my hands as I incline her hear further, fusing our lips together more firmly. But our noses are in the way, and we have to find the right angle to stop bumping into each other. It’s frustrating at first because I want her lips on mine and her breath mingling with my breath. Our heads finally slant in the right positions, and our lips fit perfectly. We both exhale in relief and groan at the contact.
Something in me breaks loose. Suddenly I’m pulling at her hair frantically, and my kisses become hungry and aggressive. I’m trembling and desperate and all I can think is I’ve never felt anything like this before, and I don’t ever want to stop or let her go. I don’t need to wonder if she’s enjoying this kiss too. Her hands fisted in my hair, yanking me closer and closer are all the answers I need. She’s pressing her chest into mine, and I swear I can feel her heart hammering. Neither one of us wants it to end.
We break apart and gulp for air, and my hands leave her hair, greedy to explore other parts of her, but they end up on her hips, pulling her further into me.
“More,” I beg, because right now, that’s all I can do.
Beg like my life depends on it. At this point, I feel like I’m about to go up in flames.



Autumn Grey writes sexy, angsty contemporary romance that always ends with a happy ever after. She loves reading stories with flawed and quirky characters, broody alphas and sassy heroines.

CONFESS: 
Is the first full length novel within the (Sin City Salvation #1) series by A. Zavarelli. In this we meet Gypsy & Lucian 

TITLE: Confess
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: September 25th, 2018

Twenty-three year old Gypsy is living life on the edge, a professional con artist that takes what she needs off unsuspecting victims, men that never see her coming, until it’s too late, everybody has a secret. And I was very good at exploiting them… and just like that she’d swindled them out of their money but all in the name of making sure her nineteen year old sister Birdie is taken care of… It was dangerous. In reality, it was the most dangerous job I could possibly pull off, and every time I went into a con, I never knew if I’d really come out alive. But I did it for us.

Lucian was a high profile criminal attorney and had gathered damaging evidence on Birdie and if Gypsy wants to save her she has to agree to the terms Lucian presents to her. He's blackmailing her for two years she will be his wife, if she doesn't agree to his terms she'll be seeing four walls of a prison cell. He was blackmailing me, and I was his captive. 

Gypsy’s description of Lucian: A real prince of darkness whose features matched his lightless soul. He had all the trappings of an aristocrat. Broad shoulders, and an angular jaw.
Eyes the colour of hot coffee, and jet black hair with only a hint of silver streaked through the side. In short, he was ridiculously handsome if you were into the devil. 


I didn’t know how to love men. I only knew how to leave them, with everything I wanted. 

Lucian’s description of Gypsy: Gypsy was tall and curvy in all the right places, flaunting a body not even an airbrush could replicate. She was the woman who brought men to heel, her siren’s song luring them toward an unknown hell.

If I were a sexually motivated man, I might have considered her a nice trophy, but to me she was just another tragedy. 

I don’t know how this author does it, but straight away she had woven her magic spell over me and I was hooked, I devoured this, I loved this, I swooned like no other, I cried like there was no tomorrow, I raged at the author for doing what she did, did I forgive her?? Hmmmmm you'll have to read this to find out..Minutes, seconds, hours had no impact whilst I was reading this, outside influences ceased to exist, this author, this book made my top 2018 reads of the year..I loved these characters, I couldn't get enough of them, I didn't want their story to end.
