“911. What is your emergency?”

Every night, Zara Llewelyn picks up the phone and assists people in distress. House fires. Assault. Motor vehicle accidents. Home invasions...

Between the hours of six and two, she is the answer to a thousand cries for help. But when the payphone outside Zara’s apartment building mysteriously begins ringing night after night, the very last thing she wants to do is pick it up. And yet, she can’t seem to help herself...

Pasha Rivin’s trying to outrun fate. He’s been running from it for years now, but escape isn’t in his cards. As the oldest son of the oldest Roma family in the country, he’s not just a member of a proud and fiercely traditional clan. He is their reluctant king...and now he’s expected to find a wife.

The fiery redhead that shows up on his doorstep, following a trail of breadcrumbs, hunting for a missing little boy, is the last person Pasha’s mother has in mind, however. 
She’s an outsider, an intruder, and as far as his family are concerned, she’s not welcome on their land, let alone in their king’s bed.

Pasha has never allowed his destiny to stand in the way of what he wants, however. And he’s never wanted anything more than he wants the girl with the burning green eyes.

ROMA KING: 
Is the first full length romance novel in Callie Hart’s series. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives. 

Zara is a twenty six year old emergency dispatcher so it’s only right that we're thrown into a mystery surrounding a 911 call “911. What is your emergency?” that was put through to her as she tries to calm down a wee boy going through a terrifying ordeal. 

To a consistently ringing phone outside of her apartmentOver and over again, the phone rings, and it rings, and rings, the sound like a drum pounding in my bloodstream, a hammer coming down on top of my head, the impact jarring me down to my bones.upon further debate when she's reached breaking point she picks up that payphone, a voice on the other end has her seeking out answers at a midnight fair. All interconnected to the mystery surrounding that 911 emergency call. 

It's at the midnight fair in a disused subway station is where Zara has gone to get answers when she claps eyes on the hot stud that is Pasha The guy was more than hot. He was f#cking beautiful. Not in a feminine way. Beautiful in a savage, rough, raw masculine way. whose a cage fighter by night, a man who was banished from his tribe for a crime he committed three years ago and now owns a thriving tattoo shop he built from the ground up leaving his legacy behind. 

These two have never clapped eyes on the other before but there is a familiarity between them, you see these two have been connected to each other subconsciously for years in their dreams. 

So here I sit after reading this, trying to comprehend what I'd just read, nothing made sense, so many unanswered questions, so much mystery and suspense with so many loose ends wondering how the author is going to pull it all together in the next instalment has me begging like many others for that next book. This was completely unique, confusing at times but kept me racing through the pages seeking my answers, this does end on a cliffy which just adds to the thrill of this story.

PERMISSION: 
Is the stunning conclusion in the ‘Perversion Trilogy’ series by T.M. Frazier. I picks up right where the previous book left off.

So this review isn't going to be written up how I normally would because I don't want to wreck it for you guys, just go into this blind it's the best way to enjoy this. I devoured it, literally inhaled it, couldn't put it down. 

We finally find out who survived the bloodbath that occurred in the previous book and who died in a battle of bullets. 

RAGE, REVENGE, REDEMPTION ➻ My death..My honor..My loyalty..For Bedlam..For brotherhood..For Always. 

Yet again twists and turns that blindsided me, a guessing game of epic proportions that had me clueless until we’re given more pieces of a puzzle to complete, page by page sitting with bated breath wondering how this would all end, who would be left standing at the end of it all. Or who would be buried six feet under.

This trilogy was utterly gripping, raw, dark, addictive series that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. I'm excited to see what this author brings us in the future.
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 ‘wrong side 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.

Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of what really happened the day her daughter died.

VERITY: 
Is a full-length standalone romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.

This is so completely left field from the types of books Colleen Hoover typically writes, the very first chapter had me sitting up straight devouring her words, loving this different side to her she’s set loose. 

OMGODDDD!! I don’t even know what to say or where to really begin, this for me was like a slow burn, like a creeper it snuck up on me and I found myself devouring this, the feels came at me full force like an electric shock, shocking my body back to life, the outside world ceased to exist. 
Going into this I didn’t know what to expect, didn’t look at reviews, and honestly I barely glanced at the blurb, but one constant nagging in the background was my need to sign up for this, my need to read this knew no bounds, I needed to get my hands on this and I’m so glad I did..This is so left field to what this author normally releases and personally I think she nailed it!! 
I can’t wait to see what she brings us next!!

This book won't appeal to a lot of you if your hard limit is cheating. But if you can overlook that aspect then you'll love this one as much as I did..

Such a unique f#cked up story, this had my heart racing more times than I can count, I couldn't put it down, I didn't want to put it down.

And then I reached the ending and I was sitting there flabbergasted, like literally no words described what I was feeling, I couldn't wrap my head around it, was it all lies? Or a coverup? Such a Profound train crash type of read, A mindf#ckery of epic proportions, twists and turns I never saw coming but loved all the whiplash they gave me.

Highly recommend!!

❀ ARC REVIEW ❀ TRIPPING ON A HALO BY ALESSANDRA TORRE

TITLE: Tripping on a Halo
AUTHOR: Alessandra Torre
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: December 7th, 2018
It’s really hard to save a guy’s life when he keeps running from you.

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.

Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs.

Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Goodbye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.

TRIPPING ON A HALO: 
Is a standalone romance novel by author Alessandra Torre. In this we meet unsuspecting Declan & looney tunes Autumn.

The very first chapter had me in giggles, what a unique, pull you in as soon as you start reading way to start off ‘Tripping on a halo’ Autumn puts my stalking skills to shame, her stalking is so on point and poor Declan has nowhere to hide. She doesn't even fear the fact that he could put a restraining order on her, because surely he wouldn't if she's never uttered a word to him?

From where he lives, to where he works, to where he buys his lunch, to the gym he frequents, his soft ball games, to yes she stooped to even going through his trash, Autumn has no limits!!

“ You're going to think I'm crazy. ”
“ I hate to break it to you, but that boat sailed a long time ago. ”
“ It's okay. My sister thinks I'm crazy too. ”

But what Declan doesn’t know is that she’s trying to save him, not harm him..But what happens when the tables are turned and he finds out her name, her address. 

“ She was perfect.
Soft and beautiful.
Delicate yet strong.
Feminine. Irresistible.
And...Crazy, he reminded himself.
Batshit crazy. ”

What wasn't there to love about this book, god where to even start, I read this in one sitting, couldn't put it down, didn't want to put it down, there is nothing I would change about this book, I loved every single minute of it, the giggles, the swooning, the feels, definitely a book which I highly recommend.
