Release & Review: Hart of Darkness by S.B. Alexander

 

 

 

The road to love is paved in the dark.

Former gang member Dillon Hart abandoned the streets to join the US Merchant Marines. He feels his life is finally on track until he returns home to discover that his sixteen-year-old sister is missing. With his younger brother in jail and his older brother living a life of crime, it’s up to Dillon to find Grace. After four years of searching, a phone call from a morgue gives him a lead that he can’t pass up. Enlisting the help of a cutthroat reporter may be his only hope.

Crime reporter Maggie Marx has just the right mix of grit and sex appeal to get anything she wants, even the darkest stories on the street. Growing up in a gang, she had her fair share of setbacks and obstacles. When Dillon Hart seeks her help, she’s more than ready to take down the street’s biggest enemy. Her actions could help her exact revenge or land her in the belly of the beast.

As Dillon and Maggie team up to search for Dillon’s sister, they aren’t prepared to find what lies ahead. One family is torn apart. Another is brought together. Hearts are shredded, secrets are uncovered, and love takes on a whole new meaning.

This book has everything. Romance, Mystery, Suspense, Adventure and Action. I’m sure i am missing something more, but it was definitely a romantic, steamy, suspenseful, keep you on the edge of your seat, book.

Dillon Hart…yummy! What a beautiful man! He has a heart of Gold, but when it comes to sex he becomes a tiger, and if anyone touches his family…especially his woman he becomes a dragon!!! He’s gorgeous, caring, sensual, sexy as heck, and he’s strong, powerful and knows how to fight. I mean what more could you ask for?!!!

Maggie Marx, reporter, sexy and strong. I really like Maggie. I wasn’t sure i would in the beginning. I get tired of these strong women characters who are so strong that they feel they don’t need a man, and they don’t. But that wasn’t Maggie, she is strong from her history. But she’s not as strong and independent as she thinks she is. We get to see her vulnerability. I love that.

All the characters in this book were written so well. Learning about Dillon’s family life, growing up, the things he, his two brothers and his sister went through. The family is disjointed and Dillon wants so much to find his sister, Grace, not knowing what has happened to her after all these years. Denim is in prison for a murder he did not commit, and Duke is involved is criminal activities. I am really looking forward to their stories!! But i have a hard time imagining falling in love with Denim & Duke the way i did with Dillon!!

 

 

 

I’m Susan Alexander, and you’ll find my books under S.B. Alexander. A little about me. I’ve been writing since 2012 and started with writing all about vampires. After the second vampire book, I began to branch out in New Adult Romance. I love to read mostly all genres, and I’m always game to try something new. So I tested my hand at writing romantic suspense and just loved it. So you’ll find I write in several different sub-genres of romance.

In between writing, I spend time with my soul mate of 20 years who got a bad deal in life. Three years ago he was diagnosed with ALS. It’s a horrible disease, but we both have been making the best of life, laughing, smiling, and doing what we can together.

But writing is a great outlet for me to take my mind to another place. Plus, I have a great network of family, friends, fans, and so much more. I truly have an angel on my shoulder. My mantra is make the best of life because it’s too darn short.

Review: Fractalistic by Gerardo Delgadillo

Title: Fractalistic
Author: Gerardo Delgadillo
Publication Date: July 9, 2019

5A92F551-12C2-4260-8F09-32BFBB542B69

Goodreads Summary:

After moving to Mexico with her parents, Winter Gutan had been hoping the local alternative medicine doctor would cure her mother’s illness. When her mother does not survive his controversial treatments, Winter’s life spirals in despair. Her father, a software engineer, insists his computer program, Fractalistic, will enable them to communicate with her mother’s spirit. But as his sanity begins to slip, Winter confides in her friend Rafa, a computer wizard, who tells her he’s found information about using fractal technology to treat false memories—nothing paranormal about it, leaving Winter confused and without hope. Will she lose her mother forever?

Suspecting her dad is hiding a deep secret, Winter runs Fractalistic behind his back, unveiling a sea of computer-generated imagery swirling on the screen. Her mother appears to her…begging for help! But is this all just Winter’s imagination?

Fractalistic may enable Winter to communicate with her deceased mother, but it might also unleash more mysterious memories buried within Winter’s mind. To figure it all out, Winter must hack into her father’s system to uncover a horrifying truth…or remain in the dark forever.

My Review:

I loved this book! I loved everything about it!! The MC, Winter, is such a well developed character. I found myself so wrapped up in everything she was feeling, and going through. And Winter was dealing with an awful lot for a young girl. Then she met Rafa, who she was attracted to. I loved Rafa, i think everyone will love Rafa!! She also made friends with a girl from school named Julia. Winter really likes Julia, but then at times she’s not so sure she trusts her, or her mother.

I loved the whole concept of the fractals, it intrigued me throughout the story. Delgadillo was masterful the way he weaved together a story that dealt with so many issues, and brought in the fractals and a bit of mystery and even a little freakiness where Winter isn’t sure who to trust and weird things happen that freak her out. It just kept the plot moving at a nice steady pace, where you didn’t want to put the book down.

The beautifully, well-written characters had such a strong impact on the story, all of them. From the very strange to the very endearing, they all had a profound affect on me as i read the story. And the end will stay with me forever!! This is definitely a book i will read more than once, and i will be buying a copy for my library.

Review: The Chosen One (Alinthia 4) by Siobhan Davis

Title: The Chosen One (Alinthia #4)
Author: Siobhan Davis
Date of Publication: June 30, 2019

83F1C646-0465-41C8-9A8F-9131767FC3A4

Goodreads Summary:

Is she strong enough to fulfill her legacy or will the dark side prevail?

After the gruesome battle on Xzanthar, General Arantu is on a mission to seek retribution, and he has Earth in his sights. Alinthia and her protectors ally with the government to shield innocent humans from attack, but that’s not their only concern.

As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Alinthia’s awakening draws closer, and no one knows what to expect.

Working from the secret society’s hidden base in the Valley of the Queens, Alinthia attempts to forge partnerships with alien allies in preparation for the ultimate battle. However, emotions are running high, distrust is rampant, and loyalty is hard-won.

Dane continues to push Alinthia away, causing additional friction and uncertainty when they can’t afford to be divided. Determined to avoid confronting what happened on Xzanthar, he throws himself into his duties, butting heads with everyone as he struggles to deal with the aftermath.

Presenting a united front has never been more important, but will their bond be enough to save Alinthia from the dark, evil forces still lurking in the shadows? Or are they all doomed to fail?

My Review:

If you’ve been following this series, then you know that Alinthia and her 4 protectors (Dane, Maddox, Beckett and Cooper) were brought together as babies and bonded with magic. Then then were ripped apart from each other and grew up the 4 protectors separated from Alinthia. They were taught of the prophecy that centered around Alinthia and her protectors, that their bond was important in helping her be the savior of the universe. But Alinthia grew up on earth with her memory wiped, not knowing of her protectors, their bond, or the prophecy.

Now that Alinthia is reunited with her protectors and the bond growing and her powers getting stronger, they run across some pretty traumatic things that happen to them. Now as a result of that some of the protectors’ bond with Alinthia is growing stronger, but some is growing non existent. My heart cries for suffering that goes on and i worry, because if they don’t repair the bond then Alinthia won’t be able to defeat General Arantu (the threat to the universe).

In this book, The Chosen One, things get really hot & steamy between Alinthia and her protectors. Except for one, where things are pretty cold & distant. Can Alinthia keep her protectors close and strengthen her bond? My heart was aching so much for all the hurting & pain. I had tears sliding down my face. But she has her other protectors who tell her they love and cherish her all the time. They’re so sweet and so loving. When General Arantu‘s men attack earth Alinthia takes them out. But Alinthia has nightmares where some creature is trying to kill her and it’s like what happens in her nightmares really happens, so she becomes afraid to sleep.

This book touches on the science fiction aspect, but i think it focused more on there relationships as the Chosen One and her Protectors. Their bond is important, and we see how the three of them have opened up to it and become so much closer to Alinthia. But we also see that link that is fragile, that is breaking and needs help and isn’t accepting it. This book was so important in bringing us to the final book. I loved it. Those complex characters were written so well, not just their dialogue and their thoughts, but their actions as well. I just love this series and really look forward to the last book!! Very Highly Recommended!!!

You can check out my review here:
This book!! GAH!! I WANT TO SCREAM IT OUT TO EVERYONE “READ THIS AWESOME BOOK!!”

I was really excited about this book!! I love L.A.’s writing!! I knew it would be awesome!! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!! Then…I…did!!! 😮 I could NOT stop reading!!! This book is sooo good!!! Cameron is such a honey (after he’s done being mean)!!! Jase is such a poop (cruel and hurtful)!!! Asher just goes with the flow, so he can be a honey or he can be a poop (meany). Depends where things are flowing at the time. I don’t want to strangle him, but sometimes I want to slap him.

Speaking of slapping, sometimes I wanted to slap Hailee upside the head. I mean there’s a reason she hates football, but Cam is out there….why aren’t you watching him?? But anyway, I’m not going to tell you all about the story. You have the summary and you should enjoy reading the book without knowing everything that’s about to happen. That’s why I avoid reviews sometimes. But I need to say BE PREPARED TO BE SUCKED INTO THIS BOOK AND NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!!! YOU’RE GONNA LOVE IT!!!!

Review: Third To Tumble by Alexa Whitewolf

TitleThird To Tumble
AuthorAlexa Whitewolf
Date of Publication: June 21st, 2019

46FB3C1E-E27D-4B40-B192-964C4B88A3ED

Goodreads Summary:

Rules are meant to be broken… Unless breaking them tears an entire family apart.

Finn

I’m the cool headed one. The rule-follower. The non-hormonal-raging wolf.

This pack needs someone like me. We’ve fought creatures of the night, psychotic families and dealt with magic and the unbelievable. We’re all thick as thieves, and the worst thing that could happen is getting kicked out of this pack.

Which is why breaking rules is not my thing.

So why does Elle make me want to throw it all away?

And why is it my stupid, idiotic wolf does exactly that…before I’ve even had a taste of her lips?

Now we’ve got more on our hands than a love story with bad timing. Cause the shite about to go down in Rockland Creek has just hit boiling point – and I’m the catalyst.

Elle

He barges in like he owns my destiny, and yeah it’s hot as sin. That Irish accent, those gorgeous eyes, it’d be easy to fall for the whole package.

Only I don’t. I may look as sweet as the baked goods I sell, but there are thorns under this armor Finn has no idea about. Things he cannot know about, or I’ll end up in the looney bin like my mom. And then things get really complicated when Tytus is added to the mix, telling me stories I can’t believe. They’re fable, myths….but before long I’m spiraling into a web so thick I don’t know which way is up. And when the one person I can trust is hunted by a demon from his past, I’m left to rely on myself to figure it out. But what if I make the wrong choice?

My review:

Is my mouth hanging open? Shut my mouth. Is my mouth hanging open? Shut my mouth! I am in total shock and awe from this book!!! I’ve read the first 2 books and the amount i thought i knew about Finn, wasn’t enough, especially when it came to the shy girl at the bakery he always took an interest in, but never seemed to say much to.

I’ve loved the Moonlight Rogues Series so far. As much as to say, I’m a little obsessed!! Four HOT main guys, who are also four DIFFERENT kinds of werewolves!! It’s very interesting how they all come from different areas and their wolves all have different characteristics because of where they come from. It delves into mythology, and it’s so just unlike any werewolf series you’ve ever read. Alexa does a beautiful job explaining this while keeping the story alive and very active. The story moves along and you get sucked in and do not want to put it down!! With Elle coming into this story, things become VERY interesting!! I loved her character, she was truly unique!! And Finn…sigh…blink, blink (dreamy look) he is the sweetest guy!!!!

I love the way Alexa writes. Her dialogue is written so smoothly and you’re just swept right up in the characters and their story. Her characters!!! Good and bad…all her characters are written with so much depth, that you want to know more and more and more!!! Keep writing, Alexa!!! Now as far as her world building. I have been so impressed up till now, but this book is AMAZING with the world building!!! I felt more so, because there was more opportunity for it. But you could visualize yourself there, smell the smells and feel the texture of the wolves’ fur and the dragon’s scales!!!! FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!!!!!!! I’d tell you more you could visualize, but I’m not handing out spoilers.

This book deserves 10 howling stars, but i can only give 5. Just know if i could, I’d double that!!!

I’m looking forward to book 4, with Lucas, the one wolf my heart has been crying to read about…THE LEADER OF THE PACK!!! If you haven’t started this series I highly recommend you give it a try, I guarantee you’ll be hooked!!!

Some see it… Some don’t…
People in the town of Deer Park, Texas are vanishing. There is a strange museum, known as Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, that appears overnight.

Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with the disappearances?
Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is the start of a thrilling duology full of magic, danger, and romance.

My Review
“You die here, you stay here.”

This book was such a wonderful surprise! It went straight into my favorites folder when I was done. It’s a YA, Urban Fantasy, Retelling and what a fantastic story it is!!

Candace Robinson has a very imaginative and creative mind!! I’m always eager to see what she will come up with next! This was very unique! It is a bit creepy, dark, suspenseful, adventurous and there’s a tad bit of romance in there. There are portals in this story, but not time travel. They are stuck in Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, which is a Glass museum of fairytales. Not your average fairytales, but twisted fairytales. Anyway, they become stuck in the displays and these portals suck them from one display to the next.

The characters are very well written and you really grow to care about them. As they travel through the museum, from one display to the next (Sleepy Hollow, Jack the Ripper, etc), they hope the next portal will lead them home. Each display is vividly written and easy to picture and you can imagine you are there, which makes it all very intense and exciting!!

I highly recommend the Quinsey Wolfe Duet, both books are so awesome, cleverly imagined and written. Grab Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault while it’s on sale!

Goodreads Summary:

Smart-mouthed Nicole Fontane has a way of getting herself into trouble. She’s been fired from every job she’s had but still refuses to work in her father’s apothecary shop because of his practice of Earth Magick. On Tulare Island where Nicole grew up, Magick has always been a way of life—one she’s determined to avoid at all costs.

With less than two hundred dollars in the bank and rent due, Nicole is forced to take a job at Tribec Insurance as a last resort. Little does she realize, the moment she sets foot inside the building, she becomes a pawn. A sinister force has set its sights on her and will stop at nothing to use her in a sadistic game.

Tribec’s proprietors, the Stewart family, are curiously preoccupied with the Naqada, the mysterious pre-dynastic Egyptian society. Nicole finds it creepy, but on the bright side, the job reconnects her with her estranged friend, Marta. Yet the eerie atmosphere, disappearing Magick wards, and the smell of blood inside Tribec bring Nicole to a startling conclusion—the Stewarts are practicing Blood Magick, the deadliest of the Five Principles. By the time Nicole uncovers the truth, Marta and her four children have gone missing, and all signs implicate the Stewarts and an archaic blood ritual to an Old One, a Naqada god imprisoned on Tulare Island.

Battling the evil of Blood Magick will demand Nicole to confront a hidden past and unlock the Magick buried within. But can she set aside her deep-rooted fears to work with a team of vigilante Mages? Or will the clock run out on Marta and her children—and on Nicole?

My Review:

THIS WAS THE COOLEST, MOST UNIQUE BOOK THAT I’VE EVER READ!!!!!!! IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

To think that this is the author’s debut book, it just blows me away!! It is labeled as Fantasy, but it is so much more than that! It has a little bit of everything. The world building – she writes a world so vividly that i could see it in my mind as if I’d been there. The characters, oh my goodness the characters!! I loved them!! Even the bad ones!! They were just sooo real, so believable!!! The growth we see in especially Nicole’s character is so effective, so moving!! The writing was very impressive, plot flowed smoothly, seamlessly & at a nice pace!! The more i read, the more I could not put the book down!! THE ROMANCE, WOW!!!!! I’d say Nicole has found the one! There was A LOT of hot, sexy guys and some hot, steamy scenes.😍 Nicole must wear some nice perfume, because she was getting all the hot men. Her friend Kara wanted one and couldn’t get him. Anyway this is book one in a series, but no big cliff hanger or anything. Thankfully!! BUT I STILL CAN’T WAIT FOR THE SECOND BOOK!!!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!!!!!

⬇️ MY REVIEW ⬇️

This was a fun book that I was able to breeze through. I always love Carly’s characters. She writes great characters. The dialogue probably helps, but also she gives them pasts and emotional scars, they have layers. It’s enjoyable to watch them work through that as they fall in love and help each other heal. In this book both Parker and Emily had layers and it was beautiful watching them heal each other, sometimes without even realizing it. I loved them as a couple. Parker was hot, and there were some nice steamy scenes between them. I definitely recommend this as an easy, fun and enjoyable read.

My Review: Cruel Intentions by Siobhan Davis

F64B7E82-0BB4-41CC-8571-DEA07D46292CTitle: Cruel Intentions
Series: Rydeville High Elite
Author: Siobhan Davis
Publication Date: June 10, 2019
Genre: Dark, High School Bully Romance
Goodreads

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world.

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé.

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.

MY REVIEW

Siobhan Davis really knocked one out of the park with Cruel Intentions! Let me tell you, it’s NOT just a pretty cover. Although that cover is enough to leave your panties wet. Her Rydeville High Elite Series starts off with a bang where we see our MC, Abby, is very unhappy. She is dealing with a lot as an Elite and has no control of her own life. As we flip the pages we learn that Abby is not the push over that everyone thinks she is. She is smart, cunning and capable.

Then, after the Elite boys leave for some camp, a new group of guys move into Rydeville High and start causing a lot of trouble.They bully Abby and cause her all kinds of trouble. Jackson Lauder, Sawyer Hunt and Camden Marshall.They’re from Rydeville New Money Elite. Whereas Abby’s Family and their associates are from Rydeville Old Money Elite.

The things Abby goes through!! Yet she has so much strength. You can’t help but admire her for that. The romance parts are so romantic, I was swooning. He was so sweet to her, taking care of her when she gets hurt. So don’t worry, you will get VERY caught up in the romance.

There are so many twists and turns, I swear I have whiplash from reading this book!! But you’ll love it, if you’re like me you won’t want to put your kindle (or book) down. This is a great beginning to what looks to be a Fabulous series. A powerful and emotional story that has left me obsessed and begging for more!!

QUINN THOMPSON

I’m head over heels in love with Maiken Maxwell. Everything about him is so perfect from his sandy-blond hair to his kissable lips. Not to mention, he writes me poems. My stomach is constantly filled with butterflies from his sweet words to how special and pretty he makes me feel. Until one girl, one funeral, and one disastrous moment shatters everything.

MAIKEN MAXWELL

My life has been a series of the good, the bad, and the ugly. My junior year is starting off with a bang. My brother Marcus, now a freshman in high school, is out of control, fighting and mouthing off to teachers. I shouldn’t care so much. After all, he’s a teenager who is trying to find his way, trying to fit in. But I do care. I’m his big brother. But when a new girl waltzes into our lives, the three things that matter the most to me, family, Quinn Thompson, and basketball, slowly become a distant memory.

🏀MY REVIEW🏀

As we are getting to know not only Quinn Thompson and Maiken Maxwell, we are also getting to know more and more of Maiken’s family. Not just their personality, but what they are dealing with at such a young age and how they’re dealing with it. Which each one is very different.

They came to Massachusetts to stay with their Uncle, Aunt and cousins because of their father’s death. Since then they’ve been dealing with the grief of losing a father, a home, and friends back from their old school. They were dealing pretty well until their mother’s sister, their Aunt, got sick and she had to leave. The family became divided, although Kade took them in and treated them well. He took an interest in what they did, helped where he could. But when one of the boys started acting out, drinking and acting reckless, then things got difficult. Maiken took on the stress of being the oldest and feeling responsible to keep everyone under control, and he started to worry that Kade would make them leave.

I don’t want to say too much, and ruin the story for you! But I will say that this is the most ansgty, stressful book out of the series so far. You DON’T want to miss it!!! If you haven’t started the series so far, I highly recommend it!!! It’s a YA Contemporary Romance and there’s ALWAYS something going on!!! You will love it!!!
