Life is full of variables.

My eyes fly open and I glance at the door, meeting his stormy blue eyes. 
“What the fuck are you doing, Hadley?” Ander barks as his entire body consumes the doorway. Everyone in the room freezes, glancing between the two of us.
Narrowing my eyes, I hold his gaze, challenging him as I slide the rolled-up bill across the surface of the dresser, deeply inhaling the bright white powder. My eyes never leave Ander’s as I drop the bill onto the dresser and stand upright, sniffing harder. Ander steps into the room, his entire presence consumes every inch of the space. The two guys in the room instinctively step back, knowing better than to get in his way right now.
Ander’s eyes are honed in on mine and they burn with the deepest shades of blue. A complete contradiction to the storm that brews within his expression. He stops in front of me, reaching out and grabs my chin. Tilting my head to look back at him, he leans in, his lips just barely touching mine.
“You wanna play like that, little girl?” He breathes against my lips as a sinister smile pulls on the corners of his lips. “Game on.”
Quickly releasing me, Ander nudges me to the side and plucks the rolled-up bill from the wood surface. Crossing my arms over my chest, I watch him, slightly amused as he leans over the dresser. Within a matter of seconds, he inhales the remaining lines left and stands back to look at me.
His pupils are already constricted, but I watch as they transform into just small dots, with his blue irises consuming them. Ander looks down at me with a sly grin playing on his lips, waiting for me to make the next move.
Abruptly grabbing me by the throat, he pulls me flush against him. My breath catches in my throat. His touch burns against my skin and the blazing fire settles throughout my body, mixing with the euphoria from the Oxy and everything else in my system.
Heat spreads from my stomach and a warmth creeps between my legs as he leans closer, his warm breath skating across my face. Just as his lips are about to capture mine, he ducks his head to the side, pressing his lips against my ear.
“Ball’s in your court, babe,” he breathes, his words only meant for me to hear and lightly squeezes my throat. “Your move.”

★★Jeanette’s Review★★

Opium SkiesOpium Skies by C.M. Radcliff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Such a powerful story about drug addiction. Ander and Hadley’s story is a raw, emotional story that brought out all the feels. I wasn’t prepared for their story to draw me in the way it did and gosh that cliffhanger left me needing the next book ASAP!! I have to know how their story is going to end. I am so hoping that these two get a HEA. This is my first read by this author and now I can’t wait to read more of her work. Her writing was everything that I look for in an authors work that keeps me coming back for more. If you are like me and haven’t read her work before I highly suggest this book.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

I was labelled a rebel, a party girl, a nuisance, even a… never mind, you don’t need to know that. That all changed when he gave me a label. I submitted to the nickname. I am a Deviant. I revel in the dark, alongside him. Forbidden. Against the rules. A bad idea. We can’t stop ourselves from breaking the moral compass. But the stranger is watching me. Every move, every breath, and every dream. He’s there, waiting, biding his time. In the end, he will get me. And when the secrets are spilled… Who will be the deviant then?  .

Deviant (Black Mountain Academy)Deviant by Dani René
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is scorching HOT and guaranteed to set your kindle on FIRE. This is a dark, forbidden, taboo romance that took me on a wild, dark ride that I didn’t want to end. I loved Elian and Arabella’s story from beginning to end. From the jaw dropping moments to every twist, turn, and secret of their story had me turning those pages fast. Elian being Arabella’s teacher made their story so much hotter. Gosh…Dani Rene gave me everything that I could have asked for in this story as she is my go to author when I need a book that will captivate me from beginning to end. I knew that I would love this book, but I wasn’t prepared for just how much it would captivate me. I highly recommend this book along with any other book by this author.

    Blurb:

Some love stories are a slow burn. Others are quick to ignite, scorching and branding your very soul before you’ve taken that first breath. You’re never given a chance to run from it. That’s how I’d describe what happened to us. Everything around me blurred and all that existed were his lips, his touch… The chase and the heat between us became addictive. Our nights together were a distraction, one we craved to the point of letting the world crumble around us. We should have paid more attention; we should have known that it would come to this. We both knew it couldn’t last, but that didn’t change what we desired most. All we wanted was each other… This is the second book in the This Love Hurts trilogy and This Love Hurts, book one, must be read first.    

      About the Author:

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Best Selling Author! Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two. In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

But I Need YouBut I Need You by W. Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow…where do you even start with this one?? The last book left so many questions and yet this book gives us enough answers only to give us new ones. Geez…The twist and turns just keep coming. So many secrets, suspense, and mystery in this love triangle between Marcus, Delilah, and Cody. This book gives us more of who Marcus is and I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough to devour more of who this mystery man is. This book has left me with my mind all over the place and I can’t wait for the next book. I need the conclusion ASAP.

    Blurb:

He was the reprobate king of Dayton high. I was the bitter princess cast out of my kingdom. And we were at war. It started off with a lie, and a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. Although I knew nothing good would come from my encounter with Bellamy West, the small town’s gorgeous bad boy, I didn’t expect him to throw jet fuel onto the already flaming wreckage of my life. Then step back with a sexy smirk on his face to watch me burn. And burn I did… He got me fired. I got him arrested. We were enemies until we weren’t. Until one touch went too far, and I found myself craving each dirty word. Every filthy promise. Bellamy West was no good, and I wanted to be bad. Screw falling for Prince Charming, I wrote my love story with the villain. And for that, I paid…

 

    About Stevie J. Cole:

Stevie J. Cole likes to write realistic stories with raw, gritty characters you should hate but can’t help but to love. She’s obsessed with rock music, loves sloths, and has an unnatural obsession with British accents. Her books are not recommended for the faint of heart.

No GoodNo Good by Stevie J. Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 So Good Stars!!!

No Good was sooo good. Bad boy meets rich girl. Bellamy and Drucella start out as enemies. He’s a bad boy on so many levels and she’s just trying to get through her senior year at a new school. The chemistry between these two explodes instantly on the pages and he brings out the bad girl in her. Their story is not your usual enemies to lovers/bully romance…no….they take things to a whole new level. Their love/hate relationship is over the top with a game of revenge. I was blown away with the extent that these two went to. Their story had all the feels and it was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. I loved these two and they both stole my heart. This is a bully romance that you do not want to miss. These two amazing authors brought their A game with this one. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us readers in the next book.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

BLURB
Blackstone is at it again. We’re chasing down the cartel, but this time, the tables have been flipped on us. 
Members of Team North Rock are being plucked off one by one. The race to understand what is happening can be the difference between life and death.
My position at Blackstone requires a clear head, and yet the stress and guilt I carry are affecting my concentration. But after what happened to my sister and the situation I’ve put my family in, I don’t deserve any sort of peace. My team doesn’t even know, and I choose to bear this burden alone.
Despite my constant internal struggle, I can’t help but notice her – Sloane Harlow. Falling for the lawyer who’s supposed to help us figure things out was never something I planned or expected.
With danger at every turn, things seem to only get worse. Missions fail, lives are in danger, and somehow, the cartel always seems to know our next move.
I can’t help but wonder…could there be a mole in the team?

“John,” Daniel spoke up, “she’s only here for a bit, and for now she’s confined to here and town. We’ll get Davie or Dell to drive her around when she needs to come and go. Frank just wants her out of Washington for a while until the dust settles on the trial.” 
“Why do I have the feeling there is more to this story than I’m being told?”
Frank smirked and hit my arm playfully. “Because there’s always more, son.”
I rolled my eyes, and Daniel chuckled.
“Be nice, John.” Savannah poked her head around the corner.
“I’m always nice.”
“You can be, but you also can be a bit cold too.”
I pointed at her, and Daniel shrugged like he agreed.
I wasn’t cold, I was quiet. People misunderstood that about me.
“Would you mind meeting with her tonight?” Frank jumped in. “She’s down at Tin House getting settled.”
“Yeah, okay. But I would be kinder,” I glared at Savi, “if you gave me something on her.” Frank closed his eyes before he spent the next three minutes giving a tiny rundown of who she was to him.
I headed outside and started to jog down the pathway. The cold wind made me hunch my shoulders. Winter was quickly taking over the crisp nights of autumn. We were warned this winter was going to be harsh, and nights like this proved it.
Once I got to the steps, I swallowed back the urge to turn and head back up to my peak and ignore the rest of the world. It was my little oasis and one no one could touch or take away from me.
The last twenty-four hours had been shit, and the idea of discussing it with some citified- privileged lawyer didn’t sound like a good time.
With a deep breath that felt cold in the lungs, I knocked on the door.
“Come in,” a muffled voice called.
I stepped inside to see a woman bent over a box. I closed the door, and when I turned back around, she was balancing a stack of files.
Wait? 
I looked around, confused at who I was seeing.
“I’m here to see Sloane Harlow.” I jolted forward to grab the papers just as they began to slip off the top stack. Slipping my arms under hers, I took the stack and put them on the table.
“Thank you.” She pushed her hair off her face, and I couldn’t help but stare. Her indigo blue eyes latched on to mine. She was shorter than I was, and if she removed her heels, she’d probably only come up to my shoulder.
“Agent Black?”
“Yes, and you are?
“Sloane Harlow.”
“Son of a bitch,” flew from my lips. Fucking Mark. 
“Are you calling my mother a bitch?”
“No.” My eyes popped out of my head at the realization that it sounded like I had insulted her.
She smirked playfully. “Good.”
“It’s just, Mark said you were…” I stopped myself again. Why was I talking out loud about this?
“I was what?”
“Just, ah,” I stumbled and felt like an ass. “Nothing. Sorry. He’s just a—”
“A son of a bitch,” she finished for me with a chuckle.
“Yeah,” I chuckled.
“Now that we have that cleared up, why don’t you take a seat?”
“Sounds good.”
Oh, yeah, that was a great first impression. Savi will have a field day with this.

Courage (Blackstone, #4)Courage by J.L. Drake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great military romance from this amazing author!!! Wow…where to start. There is so much going on with so many characters in this book. I did find myself trying to keep up with them all and got a little lost, but not too lost. I enjoyed this book as much as the last three. This is John and Sloane’s story and gosh…I’ve waited for John’s story since the first book. Something about him drew me into wanting to know more of his story and I can say I was not disappointed. What a ride this book took me on. J.L. Drake saved the best for last. All the emotions and layers to this book was what I’ve come to expect from her writing. She draws you into the story and holds your attention until the very end. If you like military romances, you will absolutely love this trilogy!!!

Happy Reading Everyone!!!
