~Synopsis~

Oz: Escaping the international modeling scene to design my own fashion collection is the first step to shucking my bobble-headed supermodel reputation and proving to the world I’m more than just a pretty face. But the minute I have to accept roadside help from the sexy man next door, I feel like the airhead people think I am. And what’s worse, the man clearly doesn’t think I’m worth the time of day. 
But despite trying to ignore my attraction to the mysterious doctor, I can’t help but be drawn to him. With every moment spent together, I begin to realize he’s hiding more than just some details of his past. He has one foot out the door. 
As soon as I start to feel like everything might be coming together for me, I realize the man I’m falling in love with isn’t who I thought he was. 
Jake: After three years on the run for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I’ve finally found a seemingly safe place to settle in Haven, Colorado. With friends, a job, and a cabin in the woods, I have everything I need to live a simple life without drawing attention to myself. Everything’s fine. Fine. 
Until I meet my new neighbor. The gorgeous man is anything but subtle and brings color to my life that I didn’t know was missing. But I learned years ago that falling in love with someone wasn’t an option anymore when simply being seen with me could have dire consequences. It’s time for me to run again, but I wonder if it’s safe to stick around just long enough for a taste… 
Just when I begin to realize Oz is the missing piece to bring me back to life after years of hiding, my past catches up to me and throws everyone around me into danger. I know I should run, but what if it’s time to finally stop running and make a stand, once and for all? 
While Body and Soul is the third book in the Twist of Fate series, each novel can easily be read as a standalone.

This is the third book in this series and I was very much looking forward to this one because it’s Jake’s story and I have wanted to know more about him since book 1.

~Synopsis~

I was my own worst enemy. For as much as I depended on order and a structured life to easier manage my bipolar disorder, fire was irresistible and indisputably my favorite toy to play with. On the ice, it turned me into a hotheaded hockey player. In the bedroom, my attitude was my last defense, a front I wanted to see tumbling down. But lately, all I got was burned.
Love sucked. Correction: it sucked when you were in love with your parents’ closest friend and he didn’t feel the same. I admitted my feelings for Madigan Monroe over a year ago, and I was still waiting for a response. Now my balance was gone. My anxiety was all over the place, my fits of rage had just earned me a suspension from the team, I questioned myself at every turn, and being home for two weeks was gonna make it impossible to avoid Madigan.
I used to be his Abel, his sweetheart, his trouble. It’d been the two of us against the world since I was a kid. I’d even discovered we had kink in common! On paper, I was seemingly perfect for him. Maybe that was why his nonverbal rejection hurt so much. Or maybe it was because, recently, he seemed hell-bent on us “being friends” again.
Whatever. I was a loser, and I couldn’t resist him for crap.

Well, Daddy likes it filthy…damn this was hot and pushed all my buttons…Who would have thought this book would be a total hit for me? I didn’t read the blurb, all I saw was that Cara Dee had a new book out. BDSM and DD/lb isn’t normally my thing at all.I’ve read a few books about Daddy Kink and it’s never really got me going…in fact I’ve found them quite cringing…WELL, my opinion definitely changed here.I absolutely loved this.I’m definitely not an expert on BDSM but I would say this isn’t hardcore at all.It’s more about the kink and it was just delicious.

I absolutely loved the previous book… ❤ 

So I could not wait to get my grabby hands on this one! I finished it in one go…I don’t even think I took a pee break, that’s how much I enjoyed this one. 😀

Now for those of you haven’t read Rule Breaker, no worries, this one can be read as a stand-alone. 😉 I don’t know why you would want to do this…but it’s possible.

Jude was introduced in the previous book as Dylan’s best friend. He’s a model, but other than that we didn’t get to know a lot about it. Well, beauty is only skin deep, but there is much more to Jude than meets the eye!!

Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Simon had always expected love to feel different than this. Whether it was his Catholic upbringing or the poetry he’d read—Simon had thought that true love would be uplifting, fulfilling, that it would give a meaning to his loitering, and add joy to his leisure. But not this kind of love. This love was a flesh-eating monster, sharp-clawed and evil-eyed, ravishing his mind with medieval cruelty. 
Dr. Simon Mráz is a respected specialist and lecturer at the Charles University in Prague. He is a serious man, responsible. His students call him The Cruel Doctor Frost not because he’s unkind, but because of his unwavering, ice-cold composure. As a psychiatrist, he values sanity. And sanity can be found in work, restraint, and self-control. 
Not many know of that one time in the past when The Cruel Doctor Frost lost his cool. His ill-advised, secret affair with a student left Simon deeply wounded. Since that day, every minute of Simon’s life has been a struggle to remain sane, functioning. He’s managed so far—as long as he is needed, as long as his work makes a difference, Simon can scrape together enough strength to get up in the morning and run off the nightmares. But when his friends begin drifting away, his beloved protégé becomes independent, and the man who bereaved Simon of his precious sanity might return… Simon’s mind and body stop responding to his impressive willpower.

I’ve got to say Roe Horvat can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned.

A lot more angsty than previous books but totally up my street. As usual, the writing and storytelling are superb…You get a brief introduction to Matej and his thoughts at the beginning of the story. A beautiful, enigmatic student who seems to have set his sights on a certain Lecturer, Dr. Simon Mraz.
Fast forward a few years and the story continues from Simon’s pov and for about half the book Matej remains someone only in Simon’s thoughts.

~Synopsis~

He wants to forget 
West is an archangel’s assassin delivering justice to supernatural creatures who break the law. Not a straightforward job because he also has to absorb the memories of those he kills. Even worse, West is breaking the law himself in an attempt to free his brother from hell. If he doesn’t succeed before his archangel boss finds out, West will be joining his sibling. 
He wants to remember 
A young guy wakes in a London park with his memories gone. He has no idea who he is, or where he comes from. A bracelet engraved with the single word Tao is the only clue to his identity. With no sign of his memory returning, he drifts into a life on the streets. Begging is his only way to survive. 
Two worlds collide 
When Tao returns West’s stolen wallet, West offers to buy him a coffee. Tao delights in the chance to sit down with a good-looking guy until his instincts tell him to run away. Fast. West is surprised when Tao flees, considering how much he’d been mentally urging him to stay. Is he losing his touch or is Tao more than a scruffy young man down on his luck? 
Only one way to find out.

No one does Angels, Demons, Vampires and Faeries like Barbara Elsborg does!

I am a huge fan of her PNR books and “Bloodline” and “Dirty Angel” are definitely two of my all time favorites. So, of course, I was jumping for joy, when I found out she was publishing another PNR.jumping_for_joy_by_piggybank12-d4jo8ma.gif (500×500)

A couple of pages into this book and I was no longer jumping for joy, but crying big fat tears.

I should have known, because even though this author has the ability to make me laugh my ass off….she also always makes me cry my eyes out !! One minute your laughing and thinking how much fun the characters are, and the next you are overwhelmed with emotions!

I love how she does that, which is one of the reasons I am such a big fan. 😉

I don’t read that many PNR stories but Barbara Elsborg is one of my favorite Authors in this Genre.

I love how she mixes it up with stories set in the present day combined with Mystical elements.

Tao (who I adored), wakes up in London with no memory of how he got there or who he is.The only indication of anything from his life is the bracelet he’s wearing with ‘Tao’ written on it.
-He doesn’t want to beg…but he has to in order to survive…
-He’s confused and frightened but still has a sense of what’s right and what’s wrong.
-When he sees a man’s wallet being stolen, he steps in…was the encounter just the right thing to do or fate?

Hints are given from the beginning that Tao might not be all he appears to be.

Last month, Alex Barrow’s whole life imploded—partner, home, job, all gone in forty-eight hours. But sometimes when everything falls apart, better things appear almost like magic. Now, he’s back in his Michigan hometown, finally opening the bakery he’s always dreamed of. But the pleasure of opening day is nothing compared to the lonely and beautiful man who bewitches Alex before he even orders.
Corbin Wale is a weirdo. At least, that’s what he’s heard his whole life. He knows he’s often in a fantasy world, but the things he feels are very real. And so is the reason why he can never, ever be with Alex Barrow. Even if Alex is everything he’s always fantasized about. Even if maybe, just maybe, Corbin is Alex’s fantasy too.
When Corbin begins working at the bakery, he and Alex can’t deny their connection any longer. As the holiday season works its magic, Alex yearns for the man who seems out of reach. But to be with Alex, Corbin will have to challenge every truth he’s ever known. If his holiday risk pays off, two men from different worlds will get the love they’ve always longed for.
