Have You Heard About My Review of Saint by A. Zavarelli?!

Omg!!! I freaking LOVE what the author did with this book! It’s my favorite in the series! A. Zavarelli reached in and dug deep with this one. She opened up a whole new level of excellence in writing and pushed the bar up extremely high. Just, Wow! I love how realistic Scarlett’s character is. Typically, women are not spotlighted as the “hard, horrific, or even demented” characters in a story and I wonder why. Do we not have real women in our real world who do horrendous things? Yes, we do. Look at Sybil’s mother or Andrea Yates, who drowned her five children in the bathtub. Women are just as messed up as men. We’re just (typically) better at hiding it than men. 

A. Zavarelli, totally rocked my world with book four in the BU series!!! Ronan is my favorite male in your series and Scarlett is my favorite bad, tough lady in the series. 

Huge five stars for Saint!!! I can’t imagine A. Zavarelli’s work getting any better than Saint. The Boston Underworld Series is in my top three favorite series’ of all time and the fact that it’s already listed as a Best Seller with Amazon speaks volumes. 

The Boston Underworld Series by Author A. Zavarelli is one not easily put aside once picked up. It’s that kind of series that, once finished, the reader will scroll his or her eReader for a new read and will feel slightly dissatisfied with many books while continuing to search for another “diamond in the rough,” which is exactly what A. Zavarelli’s works of art are-diamonds.

My Review of Deadly Dominance by Adam Reese and Alexia Vice

Revised Review

I struggled all night and all day today about this review I wrote last night. As a blogger, editor, PA, reader, MOM .. you get it .. I try to be a little cautious in the way I write my reviews, which causes me to hold back pertinent information from you, who is reading this review. So, I am going all out because I did not give this story the credit it deserved and if you’re offended, my apologies, but we are supposed to write honest reviews, right? Right.

My jaw is still open!!! This book, Deadly Dominance, took me to a new level of “I need something different to read!” I sometimes scan and scan my Kindle looking for that one story that is different than all the rest. I am lucky every once in a while. I struck gold with this one.

There has been some controversy over this story. I get it. I’m not usually a horror reader, either, unless it’s Patricia Arnette/P Mattern (well, who doesn’t love her work?). I picked up Deadly Dominance with a little trepidation and a lot of curiosity because of the different ways other readers have perceived it. I am one who needs to form my own opinion, so this is what Deadly Dominance did to me.

In an erotic, horrific way, this book caused my panties to drop, just as quickly as my jaw did. Yep! I’m not lying. There’s only one other author who has done that to me and she is the wonderful Jennifer Sage. Yes … Nathan is a twisted man, but he’s calm, collected, witty and downright interesting.

As I read this book, I couldn’t f***ing BELIEVE my body’s response to such an intense, gory, erotic, horror novel!! What. Did. I. Just. Read? Wow! The authors threw me into a tailspin, wondering to myself, “What does it say about me that I was actually sexually excited when reading this story?”  Yes. I wondered that and still wonder that even now. How could a story like this do that to me???

I don’t know if any of you have ever read Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series, but I have and it is fantabulous!! Which is exactly what this story did for me – it made me remember that awesome several books (huge books) series by Terry Goodkind and I can only equate the authors writing to that standard of excellence. Is it for everyone? No.  Was it for me? Hell, yes! I didn’t want to write this review. I didn’t want to come out and admit how much this story affected me, but the more I thought about it, the more wrong I felt inside about not giving the authors the proper credit for this crazy, wonderful story … and I can’t WAIT for book two.

So, give it a try. If you like a dark novel, this is probably, definitely, for you. I give high kudos to the writers who had the courage to come out and write such a story! You can just keep my panties I lost in this book because I don’t imagine I’m going to be needing them when I read book two, Deadly Demons, releasing on Halloween 2016.

First Review

I really connected with a few of the quotes written in this story:

“We talked for hours about the first time we met and the possibilities of living the white picket fence perfect life.” 

Yeah. I get that. I spent my life trying to live the socially approved lifestyle, but I’m finally free of that stifling pettiness and I’m happy to be me, which is the very reason I decided to revise this review and to write what I truly felt, rather than what is socially acceptable. ❤

“When you read words someone else has written, you can’t help but instantly connect to that person. You know through the darkness in their words that they’re just as fucked up as you.”

Oddly, there were some things I could relate to in this story and I felt very connected to the author’s words. When a writer can cause me to stop and think, “They’ve lived this life before; these words are true,” that’s when I know I’ve found a diamond in the rough in the writing artist. I feel I’ve found exactly that with the authors in this story and I encourage you to read it … if you’re not afraid of the dark, the gore, and the details of brutal and fascinating sex or death scenes … go for it! This book was a fantastic read and I recommend it.

My Review of Ghost by A. Zavarelli


First off, I’d like to say this story (and the other two books in The Boston Underworld Series) can be read as a standalone, but it’s MUCH better if you read from the beginning.

A dear friend of mine introduced me to A. Zavarelli and her work, but being a blogger, my list of TBRs and ARCs is astronomical. So, these books went unread by me until it was a required read in a group I’m part of. So, I started with Crow, then Reaper, and now Ghost. When an author can cause me to feel as though he or she is writing stories from their actual lives, and he or she can cause me to feel as though I’m inside the book and actually feel every single thing each character is feeling, I consider that ART .. A True Masterpiece .. And A. Zavarelli only set the bar even higher with my favorite book in the Boston Underworld series, Ghost.

The author wove a tale of betrayal, trauma, heartbreak, love, second chances, and the dialogue is incredible in this entire series. It was so difficult for me to think she could get any better after I read Crow. But, I read Reaper next and was completely blown away and shocked by how well Ms. Zavarelli was able to bring her characters from books one and two together so very smoothly. I truly felt it couldn’t possibly get any better after Crow and Reaper … ahh, but then she wrote Ghost. And, she just ripped right through me with intensity and just WOW!!! …. How in the hell did you manage to make book three even better than books one and two, Ms. Zavarelli?? I am now completely hooked on this author’s work. I don’t care what she writes, I’m buying it and reading it.

Alexei and Talia share similar personalities and backgrounds. They’re thrown together in a rescue situation (I don’t do spoilers, so I’ll keep this part short) and neither of them are able to trust another … at all. Oh, but watch this author wrap you around her little fingers as she pulls you along in a riveting tale of true love and a wonderful HEA.

I highly recommend this book and this entire series to everyone. I never thought I’d be interested in reading any mafia romances, but Ashleigh Zavarelli has proven me so wrong. I may not be able to read another author’s mafia romances now since Ashleigh Zavarelli set the bar so high – how can it get any better than this? I’m not so sure it can.

Kudos to you, Author A. Zavarelli. Your work is truly a masterpiece of words. I am highly impressed.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I also purchased it because I believe that’s the proper thing to do and because it’s so damn good! I am not affiliated with this author in any way with the exception of being a huge fan of her work. I couldn’t put it down. Give this author a try … you won’t be sorry.

Cutting Through the Darkness by Ivy Love, My Review

banner for CTD by Ivy Love

Wow! Ivy love blew me away with this very, very sensitive subject and a somewhat taboo subject of things only talked about in hushed tones in the corner of the room while everyone else is having fun.

Five stars to the author just for tackling such a difficult and sensitive subject.


This book may trigger those of you who have had experience with cutting, molestation, rape and more. I do not suggest this book be read by anyone who is under the age of 18, nor by anyone who is a cutter, as this sometimes can cause a cutter to start cutting again once they’ve tried stopping; thus, a trigger effect.

Ivy introduces two young ladies who have had similar painful childhoods and they learn to lean on each other and support each other through the rigors of daily life.  While one of the girls moves on to try a new way of feeling pain, rather than cutting, the other is curious about how her best friend could have possibly found happiness in her life without cutting. She wants it. She wants to try to find the same happiness her best friend has found through a different method. So, they both venture into a world of BDSM and I won’t tell you more because I don’t do spoilers, but this book touched me on so many levels, pulling out all of my emotions at once and I simply could not put the book down.

Serious, humor, pain (in many ways), love, laughter and a little bit of romance. This story is rich and I highly recommend you traverse down this path of Cutting Through the Darkness with Ivy Love and her ability to create characters so real you’ll feel their pain as your own.

As I’ve said all along regarding this book, bring tissues and tequila because you’ll need both!!!

Great work, Ivy Love!!!!! Oh yeah, five stars on the incredible book cover you selected, Ivy Love! Just gorgeous! Introducing cover model: Tanna Lane.

My Review of Denial, Careless Whispers #1, by Lisa Renee Jones


Wow! I’m so happy to FINALLY be able to read Ella’s story!! Since the first book in Lisa Renee Jones’ Inside Out Series, If I Were You (perfect title for the story!!), Ella has been this missing mystery and I eagerly devoured every tiny clue about Ella’s whereabouts throughout the entire Inside Out Series. Was Ella alive? Dead? A victim of human trafficking? Or did she just choose to leave her life behind her and start fresh? Major kudos to the author for creating an entire (very large) series that led me perfectly into the next, Careless Whispers Series, that began to tell Ella’s story.

Ahhhh, but Ella has lost her memory and has no idea who to trust or where to go. Enter Alpha, sexy, determined, stubborn and hot as hell stranger who Ella doesn’t trust from the beginning. Oh, but let me not ruin this delicious story for you. Read it for yourself. The Inside Out Series does not have to be read in order to enjoy the new Careless Whispers Series but it sure will help you understand some of the things, events and characters in this very intriguing piece of art via Ella’s world that Lisa Renee Jones has written with excellence, as is highly expected from her now. Lisa set the bar high with her Inside Out Series and now she’s set it even higher with this one.

Definitely a 5-star review!!!

Great job, Lisa!

Je Suis a Toi by Pepper Winters – Cover Reveal


“You obeyed me.”

Her head bowed, her legs spreading wider, revealing the gift I worshiped daily between her legs. “I did. I look forward to my reward.”

My lips curled; the darkness enveloped me. The beast inside stretched, unsheathing its claws, lengthening its spine in preparation.

I stalked toward her and fisted her hair. I fell more in love than I already was.

This woman made me come alive. This woman would end up killing me. But my life was already hers, and I would die gratefully on the pyre of her affection.

“Tu connaiss les règles, esclave.” You know the rules.

“What rules, maître?”

“You don’t get your reward until you’ve been punished.”

Her gaze glittered with rebellion and retaliation but not one ounce of fear—the perfect cocktail for a bastard like me. “Go ahead. You’ll never break me.”

“Ah, my sweet, sweet Tess. That might be the case…” I nipped at her bottom lip. “Mais ça ne m’empêchera pas d’essayer.” But it won’t stop me from trying.

Dropping the black bag by her spread legs, I tugged on her right plait. “Up.”

Unfolding immediately, she stood quivering before me. Her chest rose and fell, imprisoned in the dark red bra I’d handpicked for her. Her flat stomach shadowed with faint bruises from previous nights, and I traced the bite mark I’d left on her hipbone after our parlour games.

I wanted to do what I’d planned now. To get it over with before she could have second thoughts. But I restrained myself. Anticipation would make it that much sweeter.

Gripping her jaw, I kissed her with a wet-as-fuck dominating kiss before pushing her backward to the bed.

She obeyed every prompt. Falling onto the bedspread, she watched me with desire-glittering eyes.

This room was very much like our assigned accommodation, only smaller. The fireplace roared with heat and the four-poster bed hung with midnight blue drapery rather than forest green.

My jeans and t-shirt became too tight as my body prepared to tease and torture.

Tess squirmed on the mattress as I moved toward her and yanked her up the bed by her arms. The moment she was in the middle, I uncoiled a piece of Japanese silk rope from my pocket and looped it around her wrist.

With a sharp smile, I secured her to one of the four bedposts.

It was a risk tying her down like this. After all, she’d done the same to me when I’d given her my nightmares to hopefully break hers. However, no memory of that day hovered in her gaze. Her skin already flushed with lust as I fastened her other wrist and moved toward her ankles.

She didn’t speak—she was too well trained—but her eyes never left my ministrations.

She gasped as my fingers ran around her ankle, cupping her heel protectively before wrenching her legs apart and securing them as tight as her wrists.

Once finished, she lay spread-eagled with no hope of escape.

I stood and surveyed my fucking delicious woman. The lingerie barely hid her bare pussy, shadowing it in red lace while her bra couldn’t hide the pinpricks of nipples begging me to bite.

Running a fingertip from her instep to her clit, I murmured, “So pretty and no chance of running. What shall I do with you?”

Her hands fisted, her lips parting with breath. “Anything…do anything you want.”

“Anything?” My fingers pinched her pussy, indenting her soft flesh with the lace protecting her.

She gasped, white cheeks flushing so prettily. The scrap of material couldn’t hide how wet and hot she was, drenching the delicate underwear. Her desire matched mine. I was rock-fucking-hard for her.

“I’ll give you a choice, Tess.” Rubbing her pussy, I pressed hard and swift. “Pain or pleasure first? You make the call.”

Her back bowed as I stabbed at her entrance, prevented from entering her by the lacy garment. Soon, that bastard chastity belt would have to be sliced away. But for now, it kept me focused. Gave me a barrier I wasn’t permitted to break.

Her eyes switched from dove-grey to dark blizzard. “Pain…I pick pain first.”

I shook my head, stealing my hand from her core and bending to unzip my black bag. “Wrong choice.”

je suis a toi teaser 2

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

Q made me the happiest esclave in the world. He gave me his heart, his empire, his ruthless unforgiving love. And life finally left us in peace.

A man like my maître has special needs though, growing stronger as our lives intertwine. The only way to survive his monster is to agree to all his desires.

Including his latest wish.

I’m his.

And I won’t refuse.
