Review: The Raven Room by Ana Medeiros via Netgalley

The Raven Room (The Raven Room, #1)The Raven Room by Ana Medeiros
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4,5 -Raven- Stars!

description

Julian Reeve is a Child Psychologist and Associate University Professor. He is good at his job. He has also another life which includes kinks, sex clubs...He is a member of very mysterious The Raven Room.

The Raven Room...Noone knows what's happening in there, noone has any information about it and noone can go there without permission. It's a secret, it is a mystery.

description

Julian Reeve has an interesting love life...mostly a sex life. He doesn't date and when women throw themselves at him...There is always someone in his bed. But his relationship with Meredith is totally different.

Meredith and Julian dont expect anything else from their relationship but sex. They aren't dating but they totally care each other.
Meredith is a journalist and interested in The Raven Room. She wants to write about it. Julian doesn't know about it, ofcourse.

One night they go together to the club.
When Julian saw a woman there, he feels the connection with her. He cannot stop thinking about her. But he doesnt know anything about her.

Till she approaches him...Alana. Mysterious, captivating, sweet, shy, sexy, fascinating Alana...

description

Alana has secrets she doesn't share with Julian. She doesnt tell her personal information to Julian. She is just Alana.

Julian also has his own secrets, his own demons and his own needs he tries to fight or accept.

During these secrets there is also a murder which seems like related with The Raven Room.


The first twenty percent of the book was so slow. There was no story or not enough connection with characters. I've almost quit reading. I couldn't take the book in my hands for awhile. But then...I'm so glad I kept reading...

The Raven Room is the first book of a trilogy. This book left me with questions and tons of theories in my head.

The end was really good and left you curious. I cannot wait for the second book.

The Raven Room gave me more questions than answers. It didnt explain anything, it just made you ask more and more questions every minute.

If you want to read this book -and I recommend it- have some patience with the book. Wait till Alana comes to the picture cause after that book starts to flow.

Review: Thief by Tarryn Fisher via Goodreads

Thief (Love Me with Lies, #3)Thief by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ -Ten Years- Stars

The last book of the Love Me with Lies Series...I really feel sad that there is no more books about Olivia and Caleb. I think I'll miss them.

description

Caleb Drake was a player. Every girl was throwing themselves at him. But one of them was different. Olivia Kaspen...

She was cold like ice. That cold, she was burning like a fire.

“She burned hot enough to keep everyone away. It was a good trick, except I played with fire.”


Caleb Drake was under her spell at that moment he saw her.

And Olivia Kaspen became his obsession. If there was any cure for his obsession, he didnt care one bit to find it. He told himself that he was trying...He was trying to "try" to stay away from her. But it wasn't working.
After years...they kept haunting each others. No matter what is the situation.
They were belong together.

description

Caleb and Olivia were full of chemistry. Like soulmates. They knew each other. Not like they were spending time together and it became familiar.
Their chemistry was something else. They new how the other thinks, how they feel and what they need. They didn't need any words and I love it.

I loved these books so much.
I loved that they made mistakes.
I loved that they fought with each others, with themselves...and then, fought for eachother, for being together....
I loved that how one decision or one mistake changed their lives.

“She will be your destruction. She's not healthy."
"Then let her destroy me.”


Reading/Listening these books were like reading life. I hoped, wanted, got angry and knew nothing about what will happen. Because it is just like that in real life. All we do is hope, want and fight for it. But it happens how it should happen.

“I’ve come to the conclusion that there are no set rules in life. You do what you have to do to survive. If that means running away from the love of your life to preserve your sanity, you do it. If it means breaking someone’s heart so yours doesn’t break; do it. Life is complicated — too much so for there to be absolutes. We are all so broken. Pick up a person, shake them around and you’ll hear the rattling of their broken pieces. Pieces our fathers broke, or our mothers, or our friends, strangers, or our loves. Olivia has stopped rattling quite as much as she used to. Love is a God-given tool, she tells me. It screws things back in place that were loose, and it cleans out all the broken pieces that you don’t need anymore. I believe her. Our love has been fixing each other. I hope to only hear a tiny jingle when I shake her in a few years”


There is nothing much to say about this book. Love Me with Lies series became one of my favorites. If you read the first and second books then you will love it.

Review: Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters via Goodreads

Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark, #1)Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 -Monsters find each other in the dark- Stars

I've just finished the book and I don't know how to review it. I'll just try I think.

Tess Snow has a sweet relationship with her boyfriend Brax. Her life is not perfect but it's predictable. It's normal. Sweet and easy.
But this isn't enough for Tess. Tess has a gaping hole inside her soul.

Tess' parents didn't make her feel wanted and loved. Tess Snow doesn't belong with her family.

When she had a relationship with Brax, she wanted to belong with him. She wanted him to claim her, dominate her...Make her feel wanted and loved.
When they decided to go Mexico for holiday, her hope was high. She hoped that this trip will change some things in their relationship.

IT DID...Oh, how it did...

description

In Mexico she was kidnapped by women-trafficker. But this was temporary in her life. Something big was waiting for her in the future. She didnt know what it was...Till she saw him...

Maitre Q. Q Mercer...Her owner.

When Tess saw him, she knew she was in trouble. Not because Q was worse than others but because her own body was betraying her. She should have hate him, not be turned on by him.
She fought. Against Q, against her future...Against her own needs.

Q was a monster. He was playing with her mind. He was owning her, consuming her. He was the worst kind of nightmare what makes her think it was a dream...

But...Was he really someone who she thought he is? Or he was more than she gave credit for?

description

Q was fighting with his own demons. He was at war with himself, with the beast in him. He was afraid of the man he became, the man he hated for so long. He hates himself to became someone he despised.

They say; "You can't run away from becoming the one you're most scared."

Q fought hard with his needs. He tried to do the right thing even it means he acted like a bastard. He was, though.
He was a sick bastard. But after all those years, he found his other half.
He found someone who can take what he can give, who needs what he gives.
They found eack other in darkness where their monsters were hiding.

Two halves of the same fucked-upness


They were each other's monsters.
They were each other's freedom.

Tess was his sparrow, he was her peaceful cage.
Her freedom was bringing her back to her master, her monster.

“I’m offering you my pain. My blood. My pleasure. I’m offering you the right to whip and fuck. To debase and harm. I’m offering to fight your needs with my own. I’m willing to join you in the darkness and find pleasure in excruciating pain. I’m willing to be your monster, Q.”


description

Your touch consumes me, frightens me, beguiles me
You want to capture me
I want to be your victim
You want to ruin me
I want to be broken
You show me your darkness
And I'll give you my light


Tears of Tess was dark, painful, disturbing, twisted. It included violence and rape. It wasn't for you if you can be easily offended by such things. It wasn't a typical romance. It wasn't a dirty fairytale.

Tears of Tess was a nightmare which has some piece of broken romance. It was about expecting your true nature and become free with that.

It was about storms, sparrows and darkness...
And I cannot wait to read second book of Tess and Q.

Review: Raw by Belle Aurora via Goodreads

Raw (RAW Family, #1)Raw by Belle Aurora
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ -I'll do bad things to you- Stars!

I want to start with "thank yous"

First, my special thanks need to go to Hulya who is practically harassing me to read this book. I'm so glad you did that, really. Thank you for your recommendation and to introduce me with this raw man Twitch. Lots of kisses to you, bestie!!

And one more thanks to lovely Christy. Thank you so much for your tips about designing images. The best teacher ever!! xx

-Applause-


"You're hurt."
"I'm always hurt."
...
"You're hurt."
"Noone cares if I'm hurt."


Now, now, now...

As always I didnt know what I should expect from this book. I love to start reading books totally blind. That's why I didnt read any reviews or so. But the cover of this book was enough for me to be excited.

"Don't listen to your heart. Your heart is a moron."


Isn't it so fascinating?
Changing that common sense about listening your heart, I knew at the first second Raw would be different. And it was...

description

Alexa Ballentine has a stalker since she can remember. He is always watching her unedr his hoodie. He doesn't acknowledge her. He is just there, everywhere.

If it's not Lexi, another person would probably report him. But Lexi doesn't. Because something about him makes her feel safe.
Strange? Doesn't cover it.

description

Twitch is a complicated character. He hates labels and I think he is right. Because there is no label to describe him. He has too many layers in his personality.

He is addictive but obsessive at the same time. Everything can become an addiction to him.

"I'm an addiction?"
"The worst one. There's no cure for that addiction."


He is selfish. He gets what he wants and doesn't take no as an answer.

"The thing is, I'm selfish. And I don't give a fuck about what I deserve. All I care about is what I want. And I want you so fuckin' bad that I'd do almost anything to keep you."


He is possesive, cruel and so sure of himself.

"Noone touches you. You got that? As long as I want you, noone else gets you and after I'm done with you....You'll be forever unsatisfied. Noone will ever take care of you the way I can. The way I know you want it."


He is also so insecure. He has doubts. He doesn't know if he is worty of love.

If you promise to never leave me, I will love you. And be good to you. I'll treat you like a queen."


And he is also dangerous.

"You wanna know why I keep my door locked at night?
To protect people outside of it from me."


I was talking with my friend about RAW. She told me what I already knew. She said that I fell in love with troubled and dangerous characters all the time. It is right. Because I love to see them struggle, see them change.
Raw gave me all those things.

Raw was dark and twisted. But also romantic in a wicked way.

And this book was hot. Lexi and Twitch together was like a bomb. It is disturbingly hot. It may not be for everyone but this book was totally for me.
Who knows belt can be so erotic? I'm sure I'll never look belts the way I used to.

description

"He thinks of everybody as nobody. If you don't give up on him, he'll make you somebody."
"You're nobody till somebody loves you"


Finally I can say that I love this book so much. And cannot wait to read second book: Dirty.
If you didnt read it yet...READ IT!

Review: Claimed by Stacey Kennedy via Goodreads

Claimed (Club Sin, #1)Claimed by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3,5 -Yes, Master- Stars

I felt like I was in the mood for BDSM. Since I have read almost every book of Cherise Sinclair I looked for something new. Stacey Kennedy is a new author for me.

Claimed is the first book of Club Sin Series.

description

Presley Flynn is the good girl who always does what expected from her. She wants to please everyone around her, she wants their approval. But under all this fa├žade, she has a secret. She has dark fantasy about BDSM. She reads tons of BDSM novels and that turns her on. After a break-up she moves in with her friend Cora. And Cora introduce Presley with a new lifestyle.

When she steps into the Club Sin, an exclusive BDSM club, her life changes the way it should.

description

Dmitri Pratt is the CEO of a casino in Las Vegas, also an owner of Club Sin. He is a Master, a dominant and a businessman. He separates his personal and business life. When his experiences with vanilla women didnt work well, he gives up trying to date. But when Presley comes into his office...Heat increases...

description

Claimed was a hot BDSM romance. Though it wasn't so detailed about the lifestyle, it was still a good read. But while I was reading that I fought the urge to scream in frustration. Presley was lucky cause Dmitri was a real gentleman. He gives pleasure and return...Okay, to be honest I was scared for him about having blue balls.

Why? Cause as a spoiler I can say that: It was no intercourse between them till the end. It was a little frustrating.

"Together, we're better, aren't we?"


Presley and Dmitri were so good together. I love the way of Dmitri supports Presley to stand up for herself. I also love the way Presley cares about Dmitri. And it was so good that Dmitri knows how Presley feels or what she needs even she doesnt know it. They were cute, romantic and hot together.

"Doll, I fell in love with you the moment you walked into my office. I claimed you as my submissive the moment you called me Master"


If you looking for a good hot-BDSM romance with good characters and character development, you can pick this book up!

Review: Everything I Left Unsaid by Molly O'Keefe via Netgalley

Everything I Left Unsaid (Everything I Left Unsaid, #1)Everything I Left Unsaid by Molly O'Keefe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4,5 -Tell me No- Stars

Molly O'Keefe is a new author for me so I was nervous and excited at the same time before I read the book, as always. I can happily say that this book didn't disappoint me. I loved it.

Everything I lfet Unsaid is the kind of book you should dive into totally blind. The less you know, the more you will like this book!!

This book is so hard to review. Because whatever I wanna write will be spoiler and I seriously don't want to give any spoilers about this book. I feel like I'm playing Taboo Game right now.

description

What is Everything I Left Unsaid about?

Annie McKay is running...from her life, from her box, from her prison...She is finally free or atleast she tries to be.

"When we were pushed to the edge we were capable of anything. Surviving was the only thing that mattered."


Annie doesn't like cities or people. She wants to be forgettable. She want to be safe. She finds a trailer park after days on the road. That place is just like what she needs.

"Everyone minds their own here. They all keep to themselves. It's safe and it's quiet and we don't truck with no nonsense."


Annie's life is about to change, not because she is running but because she finds a phone in her trailer. That phone changes her days and mostly her nights. That phone changes her. It makes her bolder, braver...free.

description

Annie is inexperienced. She is twenty-four years old but she lived in a prison for her whole life. She didn't want anything for her.

Until now.
Now, she wants to be someone else. And a phone gives her this opportunity. To be someone else...
Annie wants dark and Dylan is all darkness. So...the story is inevitable.

Dylan is a mystery. He is good and bad news at the same time. He isn't a liar but he has things he left unsaid. He is dark, troubled and alone in the crowd. He has his own universe.

"We could all be so many things.
Victims and criminals.
Sinners and saints.
Devious and virtuous."


Annie and Dylan both have some problems they want to forget. When they don't know anything about each other, the thing between them becomes addictive, refreshing.

description

"They could burn down this whole mountain with the fire between them"


Everything I Left Unsaid was full of foreplay. I wasn't expecting this book to be that hot. But it was...
The anonimity, trust, the way Annie was trying to know herself, her desires...It was hot, dirty and pure at the same time. And I loved it!

I also loved characters, the change in them. It was good to witness and Molly's writing was so good. I can make so many quotation from the book. Words were strong, story was strong and characters were strong.
There was good messages about woman violence, as well.

As a warning I need to say: This book finishes with an cliffhanger so I cannot wait to read second book.

"...that hope-like thing crystallized into happiness-like thing.

Review: Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher via Goodreads

Dirty Red (Love Me with Lies, #2)Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 -I'll share my husband with another woman, again- Stars

I really dont like myself not to read these books before. They are messing with my head, emotions and words...In the most delicious-perfect way.

This book...I was so ready to not like this book, really. I tried so hard not to like it. Yet, here I am...in love with the book.
I still dont understand how I can love a book about someone I dont like even a bit. But I did even sympathized her! Can you believe that?

Tarryn Fisher knows how to write real characters with real problems, real reasons and that makes her books real, a part of life...The most imprtant a part of your heart and soul...

Generally, books have some villains and they stay that way in the books. Till the very end. You won't sympathize them or like them. You want them dead or in jail or something. You dont say: "Yes, I still don't like you but I understand you"

Well, Dirty Red is an exception.

Tarryn Fisher shows you that noone is total villain. Everyone has reasons and motives to do bad things. And she even says noone is total goodness. Even the perfect person has issues and does something bad or stupid.

Sounds familiar? Sounds real? Yep, it is.

description

Leah gives birth her child but she doesnt like her, she cannot even hold her or feed her naturally. Her lack of interest in the baby causes her problems with her husband, Caleb.

Leah and Caleb's relationship is at the edge of the cliff. It always has been.

"The absolute worst thing about love; no matter how hard you tried you could never forget the person who had your heart"


Now, Caleb has someone who loves...his baby.
He has someone who he doesn't love the way he should...his wife.
And he has someone who he can never forget, who has his whole heart...Olivia.

With a husband like that, Leah's heartless behavior for her daughter makes everything worse and makes their realtionship jump off from that cliff.

Johanna Leah Smith doesn't know love, doesn't feel love or doesn't feel loved. Until him. Until Caleb. Now, she loves obsessively and she fights dirty.

"My name is Leah and I will do anything to keep my husband"


I still dont like Leah, I still dont want her to have Happily Ever After. But if you love someone the way she does and that person loves someone else...Well, it must be hard. But she creates her own hurt by herself.

This book reveals some secrets..Both from Caleb and Leah. The bomb Leah blew at the end was totally perfect twist. It shows just how dirty she fights. How manipulative she is...

Now I just cant wait to listen Thief...with that British accent of Caleb. And I really want a HEA for Olivia and Caleb.

I loved listening this book. These books are addicting. I can say Tarryn Fisher is one of my favorite author. So from now on she is an auto-buy-author for me. No matter what she writes, I will read it.



Review: The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown via Netgalley

The Lessons (Off-Limits, #1)The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4- Teach me how, Doc- Stars!

When I saw this book was about Sex Surrogates...Well, I needed to read it. Cause I knew it would be fun and hot. I wasn't wrong.

description

Natalie Reese likes everything in order. She wants her life like she'd planned. But life is a tricky bitch who likes to play with people's plans.

Natalie is far behind her plan. Because eventhough she is thirty, she is still virgin. And she decided to take control of her life.

She moves from New York to San Francisco. She is in new city with a new job and determined to succeed on her Plan. But first she needs to fix "the problem", her virginity. She cannot even date anyone because of this "problem". Even with the hot guy from library: Ryan Andrews.

To fix her situation she decides to have a sex surrogate and that sex surrogate of her happens to be the hot Ryan Andrews...

"Good or bad?"

description

Ryan and Natalie are so good together. They are funny and hot. Their chemistry is palpable. But they need to be professional together. They need to keep everything clinical. It is not that easy, though.

Ryan Andrews has troubled past and fucked-up family. He is good at keeping his emotions under control and keeping it all professional. But with Natalie...It is easier said than done.

"I'd never wanted something, someone, so much in my life. I'm not ever going to make that mistake again. You make me so happy; you make me laugh."


Natalie is smart, successful in business but alone even she is good-looking. She is inexperienced but eager at the same time. She cuss a lot one minute the other she doesn't like to hear word "breast".

description

Ryan and Natalie have so much in common. From their taste in the music to their taste in the pizza. They also familiar to the family drama or lack of it.

They were hilarious together. When I read them, I couldnt erase the smile on my face. Especially, Natalie's inner voice. Her mind works really...umm, fun. Do you need some examples?

"Hi, just me. Just thinking about that thing you did. You know, your lips on my v"
"Hey Andrews, thanks for the O."
"Glad to know you're a Leo. Wanna roar in my vagina?"


Got the picture? No? Okay, here you go, then...

Dear God, please don't let me pass out.
I started to imagine the set of headlines:
UnSexed Virgin Dies En Route To Her Deflowering
"We were so close" says surrogate


Is it enough? Good...Now, where were we?

Oh, right...I also love their relationship changes from professional to friend and than more. To be honest, I am not sure if they were ever professional but atleast they were trying to be.

description

Beside from Ryan and Natalie...I like friends of Ryan even they were came to the story a few times.
While I was reading book, I didnt like Lisa or Paulina from the first moment of the book. And I wasnt so sure about Brad, either. I still cannot decide whether I like him. But there is one person I like except Ryan and Natalie and it is Josh. He was so cute. I really like him.

The Lessons gives you what it promised: Hot scenes with humor, a little drama and a good read. It was a hot snack for fun and a light read.
If you want to read something light and something make you smile dont hesitate to choose this book.

Final Note: I can totally have a Ryan "Doc" Andrews. He is a total babe!!

Review: Ecstasy Unbound by Setta Jay via Goodreads

Ecstasy Unbound (The Guardians of the Realms, #1)Ecstasy Unbound by Setta Jay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3,5- Paranormally-Hot Stars

Well, well...To be honest I wasnt in the mood for Paranormal/Fantasy book but with that cover I couldnt resist the urge to read it.

Ecstasy Unbound is an highly erotic-paranormal-romance. And I can say that this book is satisfying.

Alexandra is a Goddess and she is one of those kick-ass heroins. But she is lonely at the same time. She has two brothers but she desires more than some familial closeness. I love Alex a lot. She is sweet, strong and a little dangerous. Another thing I love about her is she has some hot-dirty fantasies.

Uri is the Guardian hot-alpha-male who needs relief for his strenght. Uri and Gregorie go to some clubs for it. Uri has another motivation to go those clubs, though. He wants his Goddess to watch him. It is their game for a long time...

But one day, Alex comes to Uri for help. When they are close to each other there is a big pull between them. And good thing is they dont fight with this need. They surrender to it. As result...This book is pretty hot.

description

Ecstasy Bound is mixture of fantasy, romance, mythology, action, fun, a lot of hot sex and dirty talk.

Eventhough I wasnt in the mood for paranormal, Setta Jay made everything hot and tasty. Story sucks you in it and I like this. There was a few things made me confused about this book, a few small awkwardness but other than that Ecstasy Unbound satisfies your needs with a steamy-fantasy-romance story.

Welcome to the Guardians Hot World!

Review: Falling Hard by Tina Wainscott via Netgalley

Falling Hard (Falling Fast, #2)Falling Hard by Tina Wainscott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4,5 A-dorable Stars!

Another ARC...Falling Hard is a standalone novel of Falling Fast series and will be published in December.

description

Loving a girl is easy. Sometimes...
Loving your brother's girl is...Complicated.
But loving the girl who accuse your brother as rapist?


Loving a boy is easy. Generally...
Loving a boy while you were dating his brother...Complicated.
Loving your rapist's brother?


"Fate. She might be a tricky bitch sometimes but she knows what she's doing."


Gemma Thornton comes a small town from New York to live with her dad. For her new life all she wants is to feel belonged. She promises herself to make right decisions this time.
To fit in, she goes a race with her new friend Emily. But when she saw Pax, she feels something. She feels the pull she has never felt before. Eventhough she feels like that she reminds herself her promise about right decisions and at that time Pax seems like totally bad decision.

description

Seven years later Gemma needs to turn back the town. The town that everyone in it thinks of her a liar, the town that changes her life...

When she saw Paxton, she knows she cannot be friend with him. She knows she shouldnt even like him. But Pax make it hard to not like him. She should avoid from him but since Paxton and her father are business partners...Well, that doesnt sound like an option for her.

Paxton Sullivan is the black sheep of the family. He is the one who is rebellious. He does whatever he thinks is right. And after all those years...He doubts himself, his family and mostly his brother...

They say love is blind...But what if love makes you see more? What if love opens your eyes to the fact that your heart knows?

When this happens, Pax is ready to fight what he wants. Even if it means trouble...

"How do I keep you here?"
"How do I stay?"


description

This book has a lot of character developments a good story line and strong characters. Also this book touches a few important things about life.

There is two things I love the most about this book...

One of them is Down Syndrome. There was a character in the book I love so much who has Down Syndrome. This book let people know that Down Syndrome doesnt mean the person must be limited. People who has Down can live their life however they want, just like everyone else. Down doesnt take person's freedom, people do that.

Another thing about this book is...Rape. Falling Hard shows how a victim can doubt herself and how others can judge them. How people can be so cruel.
Rape is rape(I am not talking about consensual kink). No matter what the victim wears, no matter how drunk she is...No means NO.

People will make excuses, they will judge the victim. But that means nothing. Everyone has freedom to wear what they want. That doesnt mean she is looking for sex. If she says NO...Well, this is NO. Back off!

I wasnt expecting to like Falling Hard that much but I did. It wasnt just a romance novel, it wasnt just about second chances. It was so much more than that.

The chemistry between Gemma and Pax is so good. They are so sweet and fun together. But also they are so hot. The deep understanding between them is like a bonfire. Pax is one of those heroes who is sweet, charming, understanding, hot and dirty at the same time. But aside from all of that he is wise. In a gorgeous way ;)

"You're going to make mistakes, sweetheart. You're going to hurt again. If you're alive, it's guaranteed."


I love second chance romances and when it mixes with a good storyline and some good messages...Well, I love this book.

Review: Suit by Jettie Woodruff via Goodreads

Suit (The Twin Duo, #1)Suit by Jettie Woodruff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ -I own you- Stars!

First of all let me tell you this: This is my very first read by Jettie Woodruff and as you can see I loved every second of it.

I wanted to start this book two weeks ago but unfortunately could start only two days ago. I was so curious about this book, I dont know why. Because I dived into this book totally blind. But I was curious, beyond curious.

description

What is the Suit about?

Well...Here you go

Gabriella Pierce lives with a domineering husband and two little cute girls.
Her life is all planned by her husband, Paxton Pierce.

But one day...Everything changes.
One day...Plans "accidently" changed.
For better? For worse?
Is it a disaster or a miracle?

I think a little bit of both.


description

This book has everything I liked in a book. It was dark, erotic, twisted, mysterious, romantic, disturbing and well-written with good characters.

When Gabriella was sleeping it was like an another book. I was so sorry about what she'd been through. It was like another book inside the book. I love reading those parts. And when she was awake, her relationship with her daughters was so cute. With Paxton...They always made me feel like a hurricane was coming. Do you know that tense air you can feel it like somebody is watching you? That paranoid, tense air? Yeah...They always reminded me that.

I also love how Gabriella was trying...and I dont know if this makes me weird but I also love Paxton, I think he was cute like a grumpy bear. If only a grumpy bear could be that sexy. Jettie Woodruff created perfectly imperfect characters. This is my opinion ofcourse.

"I was blessed with nice everything.
A nice home.
A nice car.
Beautiful children.
A pool right outside my room.
The ocean, just a couple-hundred-feet from there.
And one fucked up marriage.
I was a kept woman.
I was a glorified whore."


And I love the story line even it was predictable.
To be honest, I sensed from the beginning what was the mysterious part of Suit. I knew what was coming. But no matter what I kept reading like my life was depended on it. Seriously, I even couldnt sleep properly, this book was always in my mind.

I wasnt expecting I would like this book that much. Cause you know, when you sense the mystery in the book what is the point, right? But Jettie Woodruff sucked me in with this story.

There was still a lot of question in my mind. And as a person who feels every damn feelings in the books like they are her own, I overwhelmed with the ending. I just cannot stop thinking about second book of the Twin Duo.
I am so glad Ms. Woodruff didnt disappoint me with her fist book I have read.

Review: The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher via Goodreads

The Opportunist (Love Me with Lies, #1)The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ I am such a mess Stars!

description

Since I am not feeling ready to write a review about this book which left me such an emotional mess, I will start with the very beginning of my journey about The Opportunist.

One day, Ebru aka Abby was looking for a new book...Something new, something different. Then, Ebru saw a book named The Opportunist. At first she didnt pay much attention but when she saw the name of the series "Love me with Lies" Abby made up her mind. She was intrigued. So she's got the ebook version of the book and put it aside till the right day comes. But when she saw there was audiobook version of the book she couldnt resist the temptation any longer. She decided to just give it a shot and to listen one chapter.

It was 2 am and everything started with that chapter. When she couldnt deny the comfortable arms of the sleep anymore it was 7.30 am in the morning. She fell asleep but Ebru was different. Because she was under the sway of the most consuming, overwhelming and real book: The Opportunist.


-End of the bed-time story-


“I fell in love underneath a tree.”


The Opportunist is one of the best book I have ever read this year, maybe ever. It is hard to describe. But I can easily say one thing: This book is real. This book is not heart and flowers...This book is not rainbows and unicorns...This book is REAL.

description

Olivia Kaspen...She is so different from the other heroins. She is not the good girl. She makes herself hard to love. She is insecure but tough. She is sweet but bitter. She is troubled but the trouble herself. She loves but does hateful things. She is strong but vulnerable. She is the most right and the most wrong girl for Caleb.

She fights dirty because she's hurt too much but also she hurts people too much. She makes wrong and hard decisions. She may be the most intense character I have ever read. Her story suffocates me by heart.
The Opportunist is suffocating, addicting, consuming, overwhelming, depressing, beautiful, real and a story that stays with you forever.

“I think that after the first time you give your heart away, you never get it back. The rest of your life is just you pretending that you still have a heart.”


When Olivia and Caleb are together...They are so good and bad at the same time. So perfect and imperfect...
Their story says that sometimes love may not be enough. Sometimes...It is better to let go, no matter how hard it is.

“You can only give your heart away once, after that, everything else will chase your first love”


I love everything about this book even though it overwhelmed me time to time. I listened just one book, The Opportunist, but it was like a few books already. Not in a bad way. When the book ended, I wanted more but I still had some confusion whether it was just the first book I have read. Because it makes you feel like you lived/suffered enough for a lifetime. That is how this book consumes and overwhelmes you.

Reading/Listening this book was painful pleasure and I loved every seconds of it.

PS: This book should come with a warning or an antidepressant. Because it will make your heart shred to million pieces and then will give it back to you bleeding. If you are ready for it, dont waste one more second to read it. Go for it!



Review: Reflected in You by Sylvia Day via Goodreads

Reflected in You (Crossfire #2)Reflected in You by Sylvia Day
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4- I'd do anything for you- Stars!

description

I'm just finished with this book and...Wow. I wasnt expecting that.

Okay...Now I will tell you how I felt while reading this book.

Since I liked Bared To You but felt something was missing in the first book, I was waiting big changes in the second book of Crossfire Series. My expectations were high at first.

In Reflected in You the biggest problem was jealousy. Gideon wasnt opening up about his thoughts and when this fact mixed with Eva's insecurity the jealousy was inevitable.
At first I thought this book would just be about jealousy and make-up sex. Because till the half of this book it was what it is.

“I'd rather argue with you, angel, then laugh with anyone else.”


They were fighting over someone and then BAM! Hot-make-up-sex! I am not complaining, it was hot. But I was waiting more from this book. Thats why I was almost disappointed. But it was hot enough to erase my disappointment.

description

The second half of the book was something else. I was angry at Gideon because he wasnt explaining anything and just expected Eva to trust him. But at the same time I loved him a lot. Because I trusted him.

And after he told what happened to him...I just loved him more. I have a sweet spot for troubled-men. I cannot help it *sigh*

“You’re the greatest risk I’ve ever taken.” His pressed his lips gently to mine. “And the greatest reward.”


But why I gave this book 4 stars even I didnt love the first half that much? Here is the answer: That end of the book!

End of the book my suspicions became true. I knew it but listening it was better. Because that part was written cleverly.

I admired Gideon, his intelligence and his power. It may not right thing to do but still...I felt relief like Eva. End of the Reflected in You was so much better that I expected. And I loved this book more than Bared to You.
I will keep listening this series with Entwined with You.

And as a note: Audiobook version of this book is so good. I loved Narrator so much. Her voice and the way her reading were just great!




Review: Drawn Through You by Sarina Rhoads via Netgalley

Drawn Through YouDrawn Through You by Sarina Rhoads
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4- Lets turn the tables- Stars

description

What if the brooding billionaire wore pencil skirts and Louboutins? What if the impressionable intern was a small-town furniture maker with boyish charm?


This description demands my attention when I first saw this book.

description

This book reminds me "dont stop believin'" song. I think just because the small town and city theme.

Cole Jacobson is the small town boy who is happy being one. He doesnt feel the need to go to the big city. But after his father died, family business falters. So he has to accept his Uncle's offer and works for his company: Jacobson and Wright.

But for the record: His uncle Robert is the total A-hole.

He threates Cole and tries to use him for get rid of his job partner: Shaun Wright.

Shaun Wright is brilliant, talented, beautiful woman. She dates with both genre. But when she first saw Cole Jacobson she feels the attraction.

Cole and Shaun are so good together. I like their chemistry, their understanding for each other. They are both forced to do something they didnt truly want.

Shaun loves control but when she is with Cole she is willing to give up control to him.

description

Drawn Through You makes a different from usual billionaire books. In this book woman has the power, money and name. In this book woman is the player who dates so many people, male and female.
Drawn Through You is fun, hot and quick read. There isnt so much drama. It is light and more like a movie.

Eventhough there is some things I wanted to be different, I still like reading this book.

Review: Exhibition by Nicolette Hugo provided via Netgalley

Exhibition: Unchained ViceExhibition: Unchained Vice by Nicolette Hugo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4- Safe-out or Say My Name- Stars!

This is my first ARC so I am excited and a little nervous. Okay..Lets do this.

When I saw this book I was hooked by the cover. And when I read the description I was sold...

It's not what you show, it's what you hide.


Grace is a counselor who knows difficulty of dealing with problems. Because she has her own problems.
One day Grace went to a party and was put on display because of the "play to stay" rule. She stayed as a guestbook on St. Andrew's Cross, blinfolded and naked.

That was her undoing. That was her temptation which was hard to resist. Because Grace was an exhibitionist who tries to steer clear of BDSM world. She was doing good to stay away till Jason came and use her as his canvas.
He's waken something inside her, something deep and made her feel like being the way you are can be accepted. He gave her hope after a long time.

When Grace had a hard time at work, she accepted to take a break...For three weeks...She needed to do that to find herself again. And she found herself in front of the Jason's studio.

description

An exhibitionist and a photographer...Consensual non-content for three weeks...No limits, no boundaries...Only safe word: Ghost.

"Safe-out or say my name..."


Exhibition was darker than I assumed. Everyone was troubled and everyone wanted to be accepted for being who they are.

Exhibition was the mixture of darkness, kink, art, vulnerability and acceptance.

Jason and Grace's relationship wasn't about just love. It was about trust, finding yourself, accepting yourself and feeling free.

Exhibition was written artistically. It was intelligent, sensual and dark. It has some nuances of Greek myths and that was also a win for me.

"-Why Perseids?
-Because...You see it in the Perseus constellation.
-Perceus?
-Yeah, the-
-Horse with wings?
-No, that's Pegasus. Perseus rode Pegasus.
-So I was close?
-Baby, if you can't tell the difference between a man and a horse, I'll take that as a compliment."


As a person who loves sensual art, I loved Jason's job. It was hot and it gave him deep and mysterious persona. He was intense and that made this book more captivating and hot.

"You'll never be an object to me Grace, but your body will always be my canvas."
