Bane of Dragons – Clara Hartley

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Bane of Dragons – Clara Hartley

I'm surrounded by dragons, and they're all afraid of me.

At the age of nine, I mistakenly touched someone else, giving him excruciating pain. Through that awful experience, I found out that a graze of my fingertips could torment any being with dragon blood. Because I was surrounded by them in my kingdom, my ability labelled me as cursed. And with that, my family lost everything.

I promised myself to never be shunned away again. That I had to be someone important for people to look up to. A crucial vote was coming up and I would do anything to win it. Then I met them. Four hidrae princes, dragon-shifters of the most powerful kind, who were immune to my abilities. Being able to touch someone else was intoxicating. Associating with them was killing my chances of winning the vote, but the princes drew me in—Rylan with his regal demeanor, Micah with his mystery, Kael who threw all care to the winds... and Gaius? Gaius should just fall on his face and die.

Don't miss this slow-burn reverse harem romance, set in a world of fantasy, dragons and intrigue!

Wow.

This is the first book I’ve read of Clara Hartley’s. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of her until a few days ago. I discovered her through one of the facebook groups I’m in where she was looking for reviewers for one of her new releases. It sounded good, so I joined her group and signed up to be a part of her ARC team. This book was an available title for review, so I requested to review it. I’m really into dragon shifters recently, so I was all about giving this new (to me) author a shot–and I’m not disappointed in the least.

I love Ms. Hartley’s writing style. She somehow perfectly encapsulated humor as well as angst, while making you feel so indignant on the heroine’s behalf of the treatment she receives. Sera is extremely ambitious and goal-oriented. She has a specific target in mind and she’s worked all her life to get to where she is. She’s gone to great lengths to hide her curse–every time she touches someone, they feel intense and excruciating pain–and attempts to live a normal life. This includes her constant wearing of gloves and robes with long sleeves and collars, taking care not to leave any skin exposed that could come into contact with another person. It’s a lonely and isolating life–she hasn’t even hugged her parents or her sister since before she was nine–but she’s determined to make the most of it.

Enter the [devastatingly handsome] princes. When they touch her, her curse doesn’t affect them. What they do feel, however, is a warm, enthralling, tingling sensation whenever their skin touches.

Each prince has a unique personality, and I have to admit–I wasn’t too impressed with them at first. They’re all spoiled and think far too highly of themselves, though Gaius is the worst of them. I got so frustrated with them when they’re first introduced, though three of them came around pretty easily. Gaius is infuriating and treats Sera like scum. Even though he has a pretty good reason behind his disdain, it doesn’t fully excuse his actions, and quite frankly, I was hoping she would snap and punch him or something–I sure wanted to!

There were a few parts in this book that were somewhat inconsistent and confused me a little bit. For instance, they’re all a little wary of her at first, and then it’s like they instantly fell for her and had zero reservations. The instalove sorta bugs me, but it’s a common occurrence in romance novels–especially paranormal/fantasy–so it’s not enough to turn me off from a book; just annoys me a little bit. But that’s just me [:

Also, speaking of things that bug me … View Spoiler »

Honestly, this book reminded me so much of Trickery, and I love those books. I definitely think most people who like the Curse of the Gods series will probably enjoy this book, as well.

In all, I devoured this book in a day and a half. I couldn’t stop reading. I had to find out what happened next. I loved it. This book had me laughing one minute and crying the next. The emotions are so raw and the guys are so swoon-worthy. And, oh my gosh, the puns. There are so many dumb but hysterical puns in this book, which is right up my alley in the humor department. [;

Also, I just want to point this out–the world building in this book is amazing. I’m constantly amazed by fantasy authors who create these fictitious worlds with all these different races of people. Not to mention the names of said people, the words of the spells, and the names of the places. I was super impressed and it’s clear that she put a lot of work and effort into it. I love reading a story where you can feel the passion of the author behind the words they’ve written.

I highly recommend this book. It was so good, and I’m dying to read the next one!

Rock F*ck Club – Michelle Mankin

This book is suitable for 18+ due to mature content.

10 cities in two weeks 10 famous rockstars. On my knees. Against the wall. On my titsI don't care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it. Why? Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

He told me I was too uptight. Too vanilla. Too boring. So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea. What I didn't know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I've got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.

Rockstars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy. Hollywood is calling. I get to choose which rockstars I want. The stakes are high. This sh*t just got real. What could go wrong?

Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin
Series: Rock F*ck Club #1
Genres: Romance, New Adult
three-half-stars

This is a book I’ve been seeing random posts about here and there in the romance community. I’ll be honest: while I’m a huge fan of rock star romance, I was extremely apprehensive about this book as I’m not super into the whole “having sex for sex’s sake” thing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the steaminess, but if there’s no heart to it, I have a bit of a difficult time getting into the story. So the fact that the entire premise of this book was that she created the “Rock F*ck Club” for the sole purpose to f*ck rock stars and “take back control” by treating them the way they treat women … well, I wasn’t super impressed with that thought. So, while I’d been hearing pretty good things, I kept putting it off.

Well, I’d recently gotten the opportunity from the author to read the follow-up novella as well as an ARC for the sequel, so while the first book is available for free on Amazon right now, I decided I’d better pick it up and read it so I would be able to review the next two books to the best of my ability.

And let me just say … while I wouldn’t say I was blown away by this book (no pun intended), I am glad I finally got around to reading it. It was worth it, no matter how frustrated I felt while reading.

In my completely honest opinion, the heroine, Raven, made me a little crazy. There were moments I didn’t much care for her at all–especially when she was so obviously regretting her choices and just flat out refused to communicate with the guy she had fallen for to attempt to come up with another choice. I wanted to scream at her that she didn’t have to go through with it when she was having second thoughts, especially if she felt she was forced into it by circumstance (which she did). Raven has a lot of issues, and while a part of me understood where her fear was coming from, the other part of me was just plain irritated with her. There’s also a part where View Spoiler »

And then there’s our hero of the story … Lucky. Yes, that’s really his name. He’s a beautiful, sarcastic, sensitive, wise, talented musician who falls so hard for Raven that his feelings are nearly palpable while you’re reading. He never gives up on her, even when it seems like he has, and he knows just what to say to her to make her rethink her ideas and actions. I absolutely adored Lucky, and he’s honestly most of the reason why I stuck it out through reading sometimes. If she didn’t have a love interest like him, I don’t think I would have enjoyed the book much at all–that’s how essential his character was for me.

Anyway, the love story at the heart of this book is what makes it worth reading. I wasn’t a fan of the concept of the club, nor was I a big fan of the meaningless sex she had (even though there were definitely some memorable scenes!), but the love story? Ugh, yessss, give it to me (again, no pun intended).

My chest ached while reading as I hoped beyond all hope that they would get the happy ending that I felt they so deserved. There were several times when I just had to set the book aside and do something else for a while so I could give my poor heart a break from the angst-ridden literature. BUT, I was so satisfied with the ending. I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a standalone this full of angst that had an ending I was this happy with. It was so perfect and sweet and everything I could’ve hoped for these characters.

My rating falls somewhere around 3.5/4 stars, but I definitely recommend reading it and deciding for yourself how you liked it 🙂

(ARC) Marks of the Mazza – Blake Blessing

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book is suitable for 18+ due to mature content.

I was just minding my own business, trying to win in life (while in reality just barely passing) when I discovered the existence of a secret race, who think I’m the answer to their prayers.

The Mazza, they called me. Someone who bears the marks of all four houses of this mysterious people, holding untold powers. Every time a Mazza has appeared in their history it has signaled great change. Change they so desperately need when they are on the brink of war.

Their savior. Their Messiah.

More like scale tipper for whatever side holds the Mazza. I just wish I knew what this war is about and who the players are. Everyone is out to get me, manipulate me, own me.

Navigating the minefield I just stumbled into could very well cost me my life. Good thing I stumbled into a mistaken Uber full of men of said race who I can trust to help me navigate my new normal. Or can I?

MARKS OF THE MAZZA is a full-length 70,000 word paranormal, reverse harem romance. Book one in the Mazza Series.

I recently had the pleasure of reading the debut novel of a brand new author.

Marks of the Mazza by Blake Blessing is a paranormal reverse harem romance filled with intrigue, mystery, supernatural politics, a fascinating cast of characters, and plenty of steam. *fans face*

At the beginning of the story, our heroine has no concept of magic or the paranormal. It isn’t until she meets the men she’s destined to be with that she starts questioning her whole life. They tell her she’s a Mazza … and if you want to know more about what that is, well, you’ll have to check out the book when it goes live next month 😉

Ms. Blessing has created a compelling world of the supernatural, along with compelling characters that draw you in and make you want to delve into their minds and learn everything there is to know about them.

I loved the story; once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down, and that’s not always the case when I receive an ARC. As it is, I can’t wait for the next book in the series, and I’ll definitely be recommending this one to anyone who’s looking for a paranormal RH and wants something other than the more popular recommendations.

Be on the lookout for another post from me when this book goes live!

Jo Raven is one of those authors that I’ll one-click without even reading the description. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since I read the first book in the Inked Brotherhood series several years ago (which is amazing–you should go read them!) and since I’ve been in a bit of a reverse harem kick as of late, I flipped out when I discovered she was writing one. I bought the book as soon as I was able to and finished it in two days.

As is her MO, this book is raw. It’s angsty, it’s gritty, it’s explicit, and it breaks your heart into a million pieces before you’re finally–finally!–given the happy ending. I guess that’s part of what makes the happily ever so sweet; you feel like the characters truly deserve all the love and happiness that comes to them after the crappy cards they’re dealt all their lives.

The feels in this book are major, and I definitely wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who dislikes angst or themes of abuse. It goes there and beyond. I don’t know how she does it, but Jo consistently gets me to feel like my heart is being ripped from my chest while dangling that glimmer of hope in front of my face. There were times I honestly had to step away from this book for a bit just to calm my erratic nerves. These breaks didn’t last long, of course, because I had to know what happened next 😉

The book shifts between all four characters’ points of view, which is something I loved. It feels like you get a better understanding of the emotions each character feels and the headspace they’re in when you’re able to read it from their own unique perspective. It also allows you to see how much each person means to them individually, and it was neat to be able to get inside their heads and understand where they’re coming from; why they grow to love the other people in this relationship and what each relationship means to them–individually and as a whole.

Each person in this relationship has some sort of hang up stemming from long-kept secrets and broken hearts. While some have been abused more in the physical sense, each has been abused mentally and emotionally, and a lot of the time, that type of abuse is harder to heal from. Physical scars fade over time, but mental and emotional scars can stay with you for years. This story also touches slightly on mental illness and addiction and you’re taken on a tumultuous ride with each person as they fight his or her demons in an attempt to finally heal.

There’s also a part in the book, around the middle all the way toward the end (and no, I’m not going to share because it’s too spoiler-y), that I honestly felt like I couldn’t breathe. My chest hurt, my nerves were fried, and I kept yelling at the book, asking “how can this be?!” I knew–or at least, I sincerely hoped–that all would work out, as per Ms. Raven’s usual storytelling, but that didn’t help a whole lot in the moment. Once I hit that part, I could. Not. Put. The. Book. Down. If I thought I was glued to the words on my kindle before, it was nothing compared to when I got to the middle of the book. That was it. Nothing else was going to get done until I finished that book. lol.

Of course, like my head continuously tried to reassure my heart would happen, there is a happy ending. It’s flawed. It’s heartwrenching. It takes a long time to get there. But it’s beautiful. This story is beautiful. I absolutely adored it.

If you’re a fan of the reverse harem subgenre and enjoy angst-ridden reads that will bring you to your knees and flawed characters that you can’t help but fall in love with, look no further. I highly recommend this book (and any other Jo Raven book, because let’s face it: her books are like crack for me). And if you do read it, please let me know how you like it!

Insatiable – Sariah Skye

This book is suitable for 18+ due to mature content.

My name is Ava Dawson, and life has really changed for me the past couple of months. I’m no longer alone, and no longer invisible, but that doesn’t mean everything is perfect. My father is unattainable, my magic still has a very distracting presence, and I’m once again a target for nefarious supernaturals. On top of it all, things are a little rocky in our unconventional “relationship”. I must discover secrets, heal broken hearts, discover new powers and quell the pain of jealousy. If that weren’t enough, we must search for a spell in broad daylight that can make the difference between triumph and terror for a lot of people. No pressure or anything, right? Through it all I’m trying not to crack, but it’s hard when the greed, the desire, the need for battle and lust for magic is anything but sedate; it’s positively insatiable.

(as with the rest of the series, this is a slower-to-medium burn paranormal reverse harem romance, and the heat hits a fever pitch in book three... as such, this series is recommended for adults only)

Sigh. These guys. I just love them. Sariah Skye has quickly become one of my favorite authors since the first book of this series (I still have to read her other books, but no worrries…it’ll happen!).

Ava quickly turned into one of my favorite heroines of any book I’ve ever read–partly because of her snark and quick wit, but also because she has a relatable body type (for me, anyway) and is on this new journey of self-discovery and learning to love her unique abilities (that frankly, she didn’t realize she had!).

Trystan is hilarious. “Och, shite!” has become a common phrase in my household since reading the previous book and I’m always excited to see what he has to say (Another favorite: “yer bum’s oot da windae!”). Xander makes me swoon like crazy. I can’t decide if I like him or Trystan more, so #whychoose, am I right? 😉 Bash is the coolest nerd ever–and sexy to boot! And Mathias…he’s a beast of a man with the kindest, gentlest heart and you can’t help but love him.

Now, I’ve heard there were several complaints about the previous book (maybe even the first as well) regarding the “steam” factor. Apparently, there wasn’t enough “action” in the second book and several people were very unhappy, to the point of tearing the author’s hard work in two and attempting to discredit how good the actual story is.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m all for some steam in my romance. I enjoy reading about how much the characters love each other and their bodies, but if you don’t have a decent storyline attached to it, then I’m going to lose interest fast. That’s what I find so wonderful about these books. The first book has a ton of build up and sexual tension, while the second continues on the same path but it overflows to a nice sexy scene between her and one of her suitors. It’s mentioned that she has further relations with the others, but they aren’t “on screen.” I thought it was very well done and I was happy with the outcome. *insert shrugging emoji*

HOWEVER.

If you want to up the ante and get a whole hell of a lot of steam, then you’re not going to be disappointed with Insatiable. Holy freaking crap, it was good. I loved getting to see more of Rhys, too. He’s an annoying little turd, but he cracks me up. He certainly keeps the boys on their toes! There were also a few reveals that brought new light to the story and Ava’s gifts. There’s obviously more to the story, considering we have a new book coming in the fall, and it’s interesting trying to piece everything together as you encounter this journey with her.

I realize this probably isn’t the best review I could write, but there was so much that went on in the book–some of it things I don’t want to reveal as possible spoilers–and it’s been a few books ago, so I’m a little fuzzy and all the details. To summarize: I love this series and so far this book is my favorite. I can’t wait to see how Sariah finished out the series in the fall. I’m a devoted fan and will definitely be following her work from now on. I highly recommend this series 🙂

Gas or Ass by Eden Connor

BLURB

Not every relationship is about love.

The odometer on my sex life was stuck at zero the day my mother dragged home a husband I’d never met. Dale brought his two grown sons to help pack and move us into their house. Both were hard-bodied and handsome, but Caine didn’t speak to me. Colt, on the other hand, said crude stuff like, “Wanna ride with me? Then I’m gonna need gas or ass,” but I couldn’t take my eyes off his rippling muscles and challenging blue eyes.

Some are about speed, sex, and defiance.

When Colt offered me a ride to school, I thought the ‘gas or ass’ thing was a joke, but he wasn’t kidding. Though he barely touched me, he shattered the innocence I couldn’t wait to shed. Even then, I sensed I’d never be the same. He and Caine soon upped the stakes, putting me behind the wheel of cars that could reach insane speeds. They kept challenging me to find my inner wild child, pairing illegal drag races with high-octane sex games, games like ‘winner gets head’.

And some are about trying to break you.

It wasn’t long before I was hooked, but I always planned to walk away. Then everything spun out of control and walking wasn’t an option. 
I had to run.
_____

**Disclaimer: This is a tale of a young girl’s crush that turns to hatred and back to love. Gas and Ass is the crush-to-hate part of the story. There’s no HEA inside these pages, so if that’s a must, this isn’t the story for you. If you can delay gratification, however, the hatred-to-love part is the basis of the sequel, Turn and Burn.
(Description provided by the GoodReads page)

Whew boy. I’d been seeing this series recommended in several book groups I’m in, but never gave them a shot before. I’ve always thought they sounded interesting, but I just kept putting it on my TBR pile and read something else.

Well.

I was in the mood for a dark romance, so I thought, sure, why not? and downloaded this bad boy. I’m brand new to the author and aside from the blurb and a few hints here and there, I had no idea what to expect, so I was going in blind.

Holy. Freaking. Crap.

To say this is dark is being polite. To say it’s taboo is putting it mildly. This is the first book I’ve read in a while that was truly difficult for me to read. That isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy it–I sure as heck did–but it was definitely not an easy read.

Shelby is blindsided when her mom comes home one day announcing the fact that not only did she get married without telling her daughter (to a man she’d been dating for just a few weeks at that), but the man she married comes with two adult sons–both of whom catch Shelby’s eye immediately. Colt and Caine Hannah are undeniably sexy, frustratingly self-assured, and completely off limits.

What follows their meeting is a relationship that awakens Shelby’s sexuality and forces her to grow up quick. She knows it’s wrong to have the kind of relationship she, Caine and Colt have, but she can’t bring herself to stay away from them–even when multiple “red flags” tell her she should.

Shelby is insecure–sometimes frustratingly so. But you have to keep in mind that she’s still a teenager, not to mention that she never knew her father and has watched her mother have a revolving door of boyfriends growing up. At the beginning of the book, Shelby doesn’t really know who she is, but you really see her progression as you read–not all of it good, but compelling, nonetheless.

You really go through the ringer with Shelby in this book. There are so many conflicting emotions on top of being a young adult and learning who you are in the world. I went from raging at the pages to fanning myself to wanting to strangle the brothers to wanting to shake Shelby and her best friend to wanting to high five her throughout the story. There are so many things you feel while reading this book. There are also plenty of moments that heated my cheeks and made it difficult to read. There’s a level of promiscuity in this book that I had never read before, short of those that deal with sex trafficking (and that’s another issue entirely) and while I did find it somewhat tasteless at times and just plain hard to read, it fit the story and I think the author was going for something raw and brutally honest, which I can appreciate. Also, despite the fact that it was different from my usual read, I still managed to devour it in one day…so it obviously didn’t bother me enough to set it aside 😉

The story is also heavily influenced by NASCAR as the stepfather works for the company. This is so completely out of my interest range, but the great thing is that Shelby isn’t too interested in NASCAR either, so I wasn’t being bombarded with a sport I don’t particularly understand or care for. I’m not knocking anyone who has this interest, I would just rather spend my time reading or playing video games (read: being a nerd) than follow sports. I do think the author does the sport justice for those who are interested, though. She obviously has some level of comprehension just to be able to write about it, and if that’s your thing, then that’s one more plus in your direction 🙂

While reading this book, I was pretty certain it was going to end a certain way–the author herself even says this book doesn’t have a happily ever after (you have to keep reading the series to get the full story)–but I didn’t see the ending coming. If you think you got angry with the brothers before, it’s nothing compared to the bomb that’s dropped on you at the end of this book and it sent me reeling.

So, if you enjoy very out of the norm stories with taboo and/or dark subject matters–or if you’re just willing to read with a bit of an open mind–check this book out. Seriously. I honestly loved it. There were a few times where I had to take a break and step back from the book for a bit, but in all honesty, it was only for a few minutes because I had to get back to it to find out what happened next, lol.

4 stars 🙂

Let me be honest with you: I am not a big sci-fi fan. When this book was given to me to review, I had major doubts. As a rule, I tend to stay away from sci-fi. There’s no real explanation for why I dislike the genre, I just typically don’t care for it for whatever reason.
And then there’s this book. THIS. BOOK. It truly shocked me. Once I started reading, I found that I couldn’t stop. The story was incredibly unique and fascinating, and in my mind, I could see the world this author had so eloquently described.
There were some grammatical and slight editing errors that were a bit distracting, but not bad enough to keep me from reading. Altogether, I enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading the second installment!
