I enjoy reading gritty, emotional and angsty romance novel

Beyond Eden - Kele Moon

This book is available as a READ NOW in Netgalley

 

This is a story of love, friendship and trust. Danny, Eve and Paul have been friends since childhood. Paul and Eve were childhood sweethearts. After finishing high school Eve goes off to New York to pursue her dreams in Art. Fast-forward to ten years later. After a failed relationship and career Eve moves back into her hometown and comes in contact with Danny and Paul.

 

A lot has happened during the ten years. Paul and Danny they are in secret BDSM relationship. Paul is a submissive with pain fetish. Danny is a dominant. Eve has voyeuristic fantasies. Hidden desires, longing, jealousy and secrets come out. This was an intoxicating tale of three complex individuals in love and lust.

 

Even thought this was a ménage relationship I was more invested in reading about Paul and Danny relationship. It was intense and erotic. The steam level was good there were some aspects of it which was difficult for me to read and digest.



Some quotes I Liked:

“I want to fucking drown myself in you,”



“I’m your Master. Everything you have belongs to me because you are mine.”



“Love me or not, I’m going to make you mine.”

Chase in Shadow  - Amy Lane

Intensely emotional and hauntingly beautiful story.



Both of the main characters were flawed.But Chase, He was the most broken of them both.Reading the inner monologues he had was both sad and terrifying.The way he treated Mercy was not acceptable despite the situation he was in.But the love story was still beautiful.



Sixty Five Hours - N.R. Walker

Lucas and Cameron works at a marketing agency which Cameron’s dad owns. Lucas is an out and proud guy. He knows what he wants and he doesn’t mince words. The agency gets a chance to work on a high end marketing Campaign. Both Lucas and Cameron are assigned to work together on the project and they get only 65 hours to develop it.



Lucas always thought that Cameron didn’t like him for various reason, mainly him being gay. Working on the project helps Lucas to understand and realize why Cameron is the way he is and it also bring them close together.



So as you can see, I absolutely loved

reading this book. I loved the narratives, the MCs, the socks, and the ending. The coming out scene was perfect and emotional. If you are in need of a funny, cute and romantic story. You should definitely read this. And let’s not forget its FREE!!!


Against the Ropes - Sarah Castille I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Have to admit that the cover is hot. After reading the synopsis when I requested for this book I was expecting it to be awesome. But I found it lacking. I assume the author had a read a lot of the books based on the new adult genre. Because this book has all the elements of the hyped up famous books. Such as a hero who is a millionaire/billionaire (I’m not really sure), MMA fighter,and is also into BDSM. (Basically he’s the dude with tattoos, money and strength that melts everyone’s panties).



So, I really don’t have anything else to say about this book. But I hope others would enjoy it. This one just was not for me.


Deep in the Count - Madison  Parker
This was such an extremely delightful read for me. Jock/Geek story with a twist. We have Corey (Cute, adorable & confident Geek), has his life planned out. He doesn’t have time to date. And he definitely doesn’t want to date a jock. And we have Brandon (Shy, awkward & endearing Jock). He wants to date Corey. But is not that confident in going about asking him out. There were so many things that were working out for me in this book. The Cryptic messages, the banter between the MC’s and their friends. The tutoring sessions. I just loved this ❤
Guarded Heart - C.A. Harms “I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review”

After finding her fiancé cheating on her with her cousin, Samantha breaks off her engagement and kicks him out of her life. Devastated and heartbroken Sam finds comfort with her friends Allison and Mitchell. Months later, Sam meets Wes at a nightclub while out with her friends. They have an intense attraction to each other. Flirting, drinking, dancing leads to a one night stand. Wes wants to have a relationship with Sam, but Sam is afraid to let him in.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. It was fast paced, realistic and had dealt with issues that occur day to day. Lies, infidelity, trust, friendship and family. I love reading about strong female leads who don’t take shit from others when it matters without being condescending. And male leads that are strong and have alpha like qualities that treat women fairly and with respect. The MC’s of this book can be described as such.

Definitely recommended for contemporary romance readers.
Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) -  Becca Ritchie, Krista Ritchie I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lily and Loren have been best friend since childhood. Both come from families of prestige and wealth. They have been pretending to be in relationship to keep their families in the dark about their addictions. Lily is a sex addict and Loren is an alcoholic.

I enjoyed reading this book very much. This book touches a topic that is difficult to be understood and accepted. The book started out very interesting with lily trying to escape from a frat house after a hookup and loren coming to her rescue. As the story progressed feeling, came out, jealousy, truth, betrayals. The ending was brutal but kind of needed. Definitely a must read

Favorite Quotes:

“I want to love you more than I love this”—he waves his bottle- “and I don’t know how else to do it unless there’s something to lose.”

“Three years later and drowning in lies, we’re suddenly prepared to lose everything for the chance at something real.”

“I love you, but I want to love you enough that I never choose alcohol over you. Not even for a moment. I want to be someone you deserve. Who helps you rather than enables you, and I can’t begin to do that until I get help for myself.”
Stripped - C.A. Harms
A perfectly wonderful love story

Kylie works as a stripper to support herself and her baby after her husband abandons them without a reason. While stripping she meets successful business man Evan. Both Evan and Kylie are attracted to each other and tentatively start a relationship. There were a lot of things they had to endure to find happiness. I loved the fact that the author wrote the story in a very realistic way that people can usually relate to.
