Throne of Truth (Truth and Lies Duet #2) by Pepper Winters

*****5 Stars*****transp


Simply and truly a real MASTERPIECE. That’s what this book was.

Amazing story, amazing characters, amazing writing. Throne of Truth was one of my most anticipated books! It’s the conclusion to this story because Crown of Lies left me wanting for more!  

A roller coaster of epic proportions!

The second book starts right after the first one ended.

With Elle in danger. And with all the danger, she remains strong and fights for her freedom and life, until the end.

It starts explosive and didn’t let down until the end.

I don’t want to enter in so many details of the book because I don’t want to spoil the joy of the next readers, I just want to express my feelings. While reading this book, my feelings were like a tornado.

Penn was such an enigmatic, dirty-talker.

Infinity:

“My lips sought hers. I dragged her forward, our mouths connecting in a vicious kiss.She cried out as I held her close.
My tongue licked her seam, begging for entry but not forcing, even though every cell in my body demanded to shove her back, climb on top, and show her in actions, not words who I was.”

Commanding, kinky, devious and possessive hero. Penn’s story is pain and struggle. Throne of Truth gives us the full story of Penn.


Who he is, what he’s been hiding, and why?

Imagine similară

I’d hunted her down, invaded her life, and befriended her father because of emotion. To deny that would be the worst kind of lie because it would mean I’d have to lie to myself.


Elle’s trust and faith are put to the ultimate test.

“How did I ever believe I could walk away from him? How did one truth delete so many lies and make everything seem inconsequential now he was back in my life?”

When it comes to standing by her man, Elle does everything in her power to protect him.

She is a powerful woman!!

The book is told from dual POVs, is full of suspense, second chance to love, deceit, betrayal, jealousy, conspiracy, greed and… lies.

“Our bodies reacquainted, our hearts patterned to the same rhythm, our minds synced into one frequency.”

I recommend to not read any reviews for this book if you haven’t read the first book.

AMAZING BOOK!

True Colors (True Love #2) by Anyta Sunday

*****4.5 Stars*****

4-5-ghhk


“You remember what my colors mean. I remember everything you tell me, Marco.”

True Colors is a lovely story of friendships, family, forgiveness, and love.

Marco is scared both physically and emotionally.He sees people and the world through colors, some are beautiful, some are not.

Marco and Oskar were best friends growing up together as neighbors.They could see each other’s bedrooms from across the street.They had a special bond until one day Oskar caused Marco pain and humiliation with a terrible betrayal.



When Oskar returns Marco can’t find it in himself to forgive him.However, they are forced to face each other as they are both taking part in a play Marco’s father is producing.The play has a special meaning as it was written by Marco’s late mother.There are two endings, one tragic, one happy….but which one will Marco choose?

Marco keeps his body hidden, terrified of exposing his scars.He’s never been intimate with anyone, keeping his sexuality a secret.

Starting their lives as friends, then becoming enemies this is a slow burn and rightly so.We only get Marco’s pov but you can still feel the deep feelings Oskar has for him as they both try and get their friendship back on track.

This is beautifully written and has a kind of poignancy about it as they both admit to what they feel about each other.The use of the color theme was unique and worked so well.


“Reds, for courage, strength, deterimation.
Purples for pride,dignity,independence,magic.
Greens for growth, hope, safety.
Sunglow Yellow…..”

“What colors am I supposed to be?”
“All of them, Marco….you’re all of them.”

A copy of True Colors was given to me by Anyta Sunday for an honest review.

In The Wreckage (Metahuman Files #1) by Hailey Turner

*****4.5 Stars*****

imageedit_402_9293335776


 What an amazing debut novel!!!

This book pushed all my buttons!!! 


The blurb is conclusive enough so I won’t go into further detail. You will get the idea what is going on when you read it. I will just say something about the great job the author did with this book.

As for the worldbuilding… One word: excellent! 


Everything is described with a passion for detail and you just feel the excitement and the dedication of the author to introduce us to the world she created. So, if you are looking for a fantastic, action-packed sci-fi story with lots of emphasis on paranormal elements, burning-the-sheets hot sex, and great characters, don’t look any further. You will get it all in this book.

From the very beginning, you will be thrown right into the action and it felt like being part of the team. Admittedly, I had to write down the names, functions, special abilities and code names of the team members, because they were introduced in quick succession and my old brain could not memorize them, not for the life of me. A few glances at my notepad helped, though and after a short while I had a feeling I would know each member for ages. The story is a well-made combination of thrilling, hot and personal moments and I think it is safe to say that this book will satisfy the needs of everyone.


What was just meant to be a random hook-up for Jamie Callahan

No kidding:

and Kyle Brannigan

:

…in search of some stress-relief on both sides,…

…turns into something both men feel instantly, but are intent on not pursuing any further. Don’t get me wrong, I am not talking about insta-love here (and believe me, I was thanking all my lucky stars for that!), but a connection Jamie and Kyle cannot deny for long when they – albeit involuntarily – meet again as part of the same team. Despite their own principles and the non-fraternization policy of their employer, both men cannot take their hands off each other and what follows is some hot sex and a slow but steady development of deeper feelings.


Jamie has a very complex personality.

I loved his caring-at-the-job, but bossy-in-bed attitude. Kyle found in him the Alpha to his Omega, so to speak, with him being more on the submissive side in bed, but a bad-ass in his job, nonetheless.

Speaking of bed… Boy, can this author write sex scenes!!!

Long, kinky and hot as hell.

Did I mention they were long? As in thirty pages long?

Yes, umm, I counted the pages. And that was just the first one. Thirty pages of hot and kinky sex… I was in book heaven! I said to a friend that this was one of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read and I stick by my word. And that was just one of them…

16290205.gif (400×187)


The story itself was exceptionally well written

…but the editing could have been a tad better. Umm, I am really not an expert in regards to English grammar and everyone who reads my reviews probably recognizes that in an instant, but I had to read some sentences twice because they just seem to be strung together without the use of any commas, so it was hard for me to understand them immediately. Some words were missing too, but overall, that did not keep me from enjoying this book immensely.

I cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel! Highly recommended!

Until You (At First Sight #3) by T.J. Klune

*****4.5 Stars*****

I am a huge TJ Klune fan!

I have absolutely loved every single book I have read by this author and when I found out we were getting a novella about Paul and Vince, I did a little happy dance !!

happy-dance-animated-gif-image-1-2.gif (282×400)


This little gem did not disappoint.

I laughed my ass off, but I also had to blink away some tears. This book opens with the best scene ever and I will never be able to look at Robocop the same way.

“Sexy Paul” was the bomb !! I can really understand why Vince loves him so freaking much.

“Whatever,” I said, fighting the urge to flip my hair sexily. “It ain’t no thang. I don’t got no ish, a’ight?”

But there was also a beautiful wedding with wonderful vows, that made even me and my black heart tear up….sorry Paul.  😛

I am so glad these guys married the shit out of each other !!!

I loved catching up with everyone and I can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen with Corey/Kori and the sexy professor.

 Thank you TJ for another amazing hit !!

William Harris is a reserved man, private and guarded. He has no one to go home to. He’s never found a man worth sticking around for. He’s never been in love. And he’s convinced he’s happy with his lone-wolf life.

Nate Kelly is William’s opposite, social and easy going. He comes into William’s life as the elegant geisha Momo. When William realizes Momo is a man in drag, he’s captivated.

From their first date, William’s world changes. Nate is nothing like his usual type. And William soon finds out being with this carefree man means always being on display and attracting attention, which makes him want to retreat. He tries to keep Nate at arm’s length, but it’s no use. Nate’s transformed his life in a matter of months and keeps drawing him back in.

If they stand a chance, William has to be comfortable standing next to someone so at home in the limelight. Their future together and William’s happiness depend on it. Is Nate the man finally worth giving up William’s solitary existence? Is he worth sticking around for?

*Extensively reworked from the short story, The Measure of a Man.*

Momo: My Everything by Posy Roberts

****3.5 Stars****35sdr


“Does anyone ever really get another person?” Nate asked. “Everything they get is still filtered through their own lenses.”

I’ll second that! And it is not always the first impression that counts… Sometimes you have to take a closer – not to say a very close – look at somebody to see what makes him tick, to see through his facade. Regardless of the fact whether he is wearing an actual disguise or not.


William Harris and Nate Kelly meet during a company event at a Japanese teahouse…

…where Nate works dressed up as a Geisha named Momo.

ۣ•ᎧƦᎥᏋƝᎢƛ꒒•ᗪƦᏋƛᗰς•~✿ڿڰۣ:

William is the first of his colleagues who recognizes the man behind the drag …

…and although Nate normally is so not his type, both men feel an instant attraction for each other, which they pursue over several dates until it turns into something deeper despite their differences.


How is the saying? Opposites attract and this also proves to be true in this nice short story.

 :

William leads some kind of double life.

During the day at work, he is an uptight, reserved man who cherishes his privacy and who rather keeps to himself.At night he is someone who likes clubbing, doing hook-ups in back rooms or taking them home. No relationship, nothing permanent, no strings attached. He himself is completely amazed when he feels attracted to Nate/Momo and even more surprised at himself when he makes a spur-of-the-moment decision and takes him up on his offer for a date.


Nate is out and proud. Flamboyant, comfortable in his own skin and his surroundings.

,:

He has no problem with being in the center of attention…

…and that is exactly the crux of the matter… Wherever Nate shows up, there will be attention and William, accustomed to hiding his true self, has to come to terms with accepting himself, with being in the limelight as well, if there ever will be a real chance for both of them.


I don’t know the – much shorter – previous version of this book The Measured Man, so I cannot assess to which extent the story has been altered or extended. Momo: My Everything is nicely done, even if a bit clichéd regarding William’s sexist, unlikeable boss, acting like a jerk. I have to admit that it was maybe a bit too sweet for me, though, and I would have liked there to be more drama. It is told solely from William’s POV and for me, it would have been more enjoyable to get to know more about Nate’s thoughts and feelings. 


What I loved about it, though, was the fact that despite there was – for a short story seemingly mandatory – insta-love or in this case ~attraction, both men did not jump into bed with each other on their first date, not even on their second. There was a lot of getting to know each other, before they act on their attraction more thoroughly, so to speak ;-), and that was really refreshing for a change.


I will leave it to the author herself to have the final word, to describe this book perfectly.

This is a story about falling head over heals in love. It’s a story about transformation. It’s a story about shattering boxes people try to place us in. But more than that, it’s a story about learning to love yourself.

Dirty Wife Games (Indecent Games #2) by Clarissa Wild

****3.5 Stars****

35hhh


This was my first reading from this author. What attracted me to read this book was the blurb. I didn’t read the first book to know exactly what to expect. The book is written in dual perspectives between Hyun and Drake.The book is written in many plans. In the past when Hyun meets her future husband, in her marriage whether monster husband and in the present.


 The book is about a woman, who is forced by her parents to marry a co-worker of her father’s.

Greg Warren, a monster of a man.


But what I loved about her was her strength and her determination to escape that painful life. The action of the book is mainly based on the present, when she’s gone from her husband for a few months. She lives, or try to live her life like a free woman.
“I can survive, knowing he is there, wherever I go. I never know when or where I’m going to see him again. I just know I will.”

..:


 She is watched. Every move or action of her’s is followed and never out of sight. She is stalked by a stranger. So instead of feeling scared, she feels safe.
How the story goes is up to you to discover.
