Ashes of Chaos Review

0
COMMENTS



Ashes was dark and it was gritty. I feel like with each book it's only going to get better. With book two we see Aria take the reigns more of her monster as she knows the monster who's hunting her will not stop to give her a chance to catch her breath. This for me showed she was growing into her character. I can't wait to see how she continues to grow. I would like to see in the next book Knox show his monster instead of hearing the rattling all the time. I'm tired of the rattling at this point show me the monster. Let me see what hides behind the mask. Overall 5 stars for the emotions Amelia was able to bring out of me. I was wanting to throw my kindle across the room SEVERAL times. He really is a monster when you just want to smack him upside the head and shake some sense into him. I'm hoping the next book we get to meet her father also this whole not knowing her roots also is nerve wrecking. 

New Release & ARC Review: Crowne Rules by C.D. Reiss

“Dante is a Dominant male hero who steals your breath in all the right ways.” —Joey W. Hill 


Crowne Rules, an all-new deliciously  decadent forced proximity standalone from New York Times bestselling author C.D. Reiss is available now!




What happens when fire and ice are forced into close proximity?


With the paparazzi hot on her heels, Mandy Bettencourt is desperate for somewhere to hide, and her best friend has just the place.


It’s perfect. No Internet. No phone. A deep bathtub she’s soaking in when HE shows up.

Her best friend’s brother, Dante Crowne. Rich as a cardinal sin and handsome enough to piss off the devil. A man with a reputation for unforgettable bedroom games. 


Mandy got an early taste of them in high school--for seven minutes in a closet. She can tell you, the rumors are all true.


Dante knows he’s got a reputation for a lot of things, including a love of solitude.

But there’s a beautiful socialite in his bathtub, and the memory of those seven minutes isn’t inspiring him to kick her out.

So he offers her a deal.

If she wants to stay, she has to work.

If she makes a mistake, she’s corrected with pink hand marks on her backside.

 

That’s the deal. 

Beg for it or leave it.

 

He’s surprised when she gets on her knees, and he’s even more surprised when she likes the punishment.

The most shocking thing, though, is how much he’s starting to like her.

 

They can’t stay in paradise forever. 

Los Angeles awaits.

But an old nemesis sets his sights on tearing them apart, and Dante may be the one left begging.


**Crowne Rules is a complete STANDALONE. You don’t have to read any of the Crowne Brothers books to pick this up, but you might want to once you’re done with Dante.**

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

:MY REVIEW:


Loved crowne rules! The story always kept me guessing as there were secrets along the way to be dished out. Dante’s feelings all throughout the story were a whirlwind it was almost as though I could picture it. I have to give C.D. Reiss mad credit for storyline originality as I’ve never read a storyline plot like this one. Both characters came alive on the page however for myself I felt Dante’s character came alive for me more. Maybe it was the history of how his story began and why he had her stay there but for myself this was why Mandy played as a secondary character even though she told the story most of the time. Really we were all about guessing Dante’s emotions and what his story was. Dante was a conundrum I wanted to figure out. I had all of Mandy figured out but Dante was still a mystery. We were given Mandys full back story from the start but Dante’s I felt like new characters and new developments were made so much so he was the star not Mandy. Though I did get a shocker there at the end with Mandy’s story (I won’t spoil it but wow!) 


I give this five stars for originality and entertainment I was sucked in and once I started I couldn’t stop! A must read for C.D. Reiss fans!







Omens by Suzanne Wright ARC Review

BLURB:
   She's the one thing he can't control...
Keenan is the mistake Khloé knows she shouldn’t make. As an incubus, he’s got an inside track into everything that makes her tick, and even though she’s immune to his supernatural (and frankly unfair) sex appeal, that doesn’t stop her body - and her demon - craving him. If it were any other male, she’d have worked it out of her system ages ago and moved on, but this time she’s scared that if she ever gives in, she won’t escape unscathed.
Since Keenan’s traumatic childhood he’s made sure he’s always in control. Of himself, and of the world around him. But Khloé drives Keenan crazy. She’s an imp, so getting under people’s skin is basically her job description, but Khloé makes him - and his body - respond in ways he’s never known.
After a bet escalates the simmering tension between them it’s finally game on . . . and then the game turns deadly serious. A threat appears that could threaten the whole lair and Keenan’s desperate to protect Khloé any way he can - but will she accept his claim, and can he accept the power she has over him?

**REVIEW**



I absolutely loved Suzanne Wright’s newest release Omens! Khloé was everything I expected and more. After finishing the burn series I definitely needed more Khloé. Omens gave me that fix! Khloé and Keenan’s story was hot! Khloé (Harper’s cousin from Burn) had me roaring laughing at times I never knew what what was going to come out of her mouth as she was so random and spunky! Khloé spirit is fierce I’ll do it myself before I’ll ask for your help kind of girl and I truly admired that. It was a different spin than Burn. In Burn we had Knox, where the male was dominating and alpha like, it was over powering and swoon worthy With Kennan it’s hilarious how he still expects Khloé to listen (of course she doesn’t), but he admires that she doesn’t, and he protects her instead of lectures her to listen to him. He’s the opposite of Knox that way he’s not the dominating prime though either. He’s a man protecting a woman he’s showing interest in. Khloé’s story is a laugh out loud, stay up all night kind of read. I give this story five stars as I fell in love with the characters (all over again after Dark In You series)

Snow's Soldiers Review

Snow's Soldiers by L.C. Hibbett


Rating



Blurb

Fairy Tales aren't just for children anymore...

When I was a little girl, my mother told me I was a princess, and that one day, I'd be surrounded by princes. Together, she said, my princes and I would do great things.

But that was before I knew about death, torture, or wicked stepmothers. That was before my entire world became a living hell.

Now, I'm not a child anymore, and I don't believe in bullshit like fairy tales and happy ever afters. By day, I attend the University of Freiburg. By night, I stalk the forest, searching for the monsters that stole my mother from me and ruined my life. After all these years, I didn't really expect to find them. It's not as if there are witches and charmed cottages and hot-as-hell warriors just hiding the Black Forest, am I right?

Yeah, you guessed it. I'm wrong. There's far more hiding in the shadows than I could have imagined, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Review


Snow’s Soldiers is a paranormal reverse harem novel by L.C. Hibbett. The setting is in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany during 1981. The novel is about Aria Snow, who is a feisty, tough, no-filter woman who dislikes being told what to do. Aria has been through a lot and it has soured her view of trust and has caused fear of abandonment. She might be a strong female character, but she has a reckless streak and an attitude. I will say now if you don’t like characters like that and don’t like crude language with sexual content, this isn’t the book for you. Still, if you don’t mind that or like that then keep reading this review.

A strength of this book is its characterization of Aria and her love interests. That being said, only one secondary character you get to know well is Janet. The interpersonal interactions move relevantly fast. I am not talking about the fast burn aspects of romance. The novel’s timeline takes place about a month, but some interactions seem quick. Possibly because of the lack of character development with secondary characters. An example is toward the end, this is a non-spoiler, is an interaction between Aria and Caroline. They mention they hope they get to talk more later, but it seems like how they talked to each other appeared they already knew each other. This is just a minor thing that isn’t a big deal to me, but for some people it is.

Overall, the novel’s story was enjoyable. I say this is a read that should be given a chance even if the above mentions bother you, only if plots are more important to you. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I got annoyed with Aria sometimes, but mostly I didn’t get agitated. I give this story a rating of 4.5, though it is a 4 as a rated because since there are no half ratings I can give it.

Shadows by Suzanne Wright

BLURB:
A match made in hell?
Devon and Tanner fight like... well, cats and dogs. Which makes sense since hellcats and hellhounds aren't exactly a match made in heaven. Unfortunately, their demons' antipathy towards each other is matched only by the red-hot sexual tension between Tanner and Devon. It's driving them - and their long-suffering friends Harper and Knox - mad.
When Devon is nearly kidnapped, Tanner's protective instincts kick into overdrive - he's sticking by her side, day and night. But staying so close means their hunger can no longer be denied . . . They know their demons won't accept the match, but after one red-hot night they'll fight to stay together as long as they can, even though shadows are gathering around them. Devon's would-be kidnapper is still on the loose, a serial killer carrying rage from a twisted past threatens the lair and, most of all, Tanner and Devon are losing themselves to the heat between them. When this relationship goes up in flames, it could be a blaze that neither of them can walk away from. . . SHADOWS

Blurb

The stage is set for the ultimate battle between good and evil.



When Elizabeth Summers jams on the brakes to avoid knocking into a man standing in the middle of the road, she is thrown into a world of angels, demons, and gods. A world where a shadow organization, the Elect, will stop at nothing to get her.



There’s no one she can turn to but Ian Knight. He has saved her once, and he promises to protect her.



There’s no one she can turn to but Ian Knight. He has saved her once, and he promises to protect her.



But Ian is part of the Elect, one of their very best.

Will he give up all he has ever known and all that he’s been taught for Elizabeth? And with enemies in two separate realms, will Elizabeth and Ian ever be safe?



Review

Elizabeth thinks she is going crazy. She has nightmares that cause her to worry about them coming true. A nightmare becomes a reality and she almost dies, but someone saves her. That person happens to be Ian Knight. Elizabeth is now is hunted, and Ian is determined to protect and help keep her safe.



So, this is an interesting story. There were some points where I felt it was a little too slow which almost caused me to lose interest, but it is worth it to keep reading. Aurora Grace did a decent job at being able to draw a reader back in after those spots. I like the idea of who is hunting Elizabeth and how they connect to The Chosen.



I did enjoy this book and I am curious of what happens next. This is a book that I recommend this book. If you like YA/Teen, this is a book that is worth checking out even and reading through.
