This book hurt... a lot

5 Sizzling Stars!!!

"...You need to be my everything." 

This is a "love" story of Ellie(Eden) and Javier.

So I should say that after this book, I'm not even sure on who's team I am.

At the beginning we got a glimpse at a very young and, in my opinion, very naive Ellie Watt. Of course she has this big bad plan for revenge. That should have made her into a bad-ass girl.
Well let me say that it haven't worked out all that well.
She got soft.
Ah, I forgot to mention, - she fell in love too.
And not just to anybody...
But to a very charming, very possessive and very, very cruel man Javier...
and oh my.. he's definitely a charmer! A real ladies man. He knows what he's doing, and he is doing it well.

I would really like Javier's book, with his POV. He's a real puzzle to me.
It looks like he's possessed with Ellie (Eden) and yet he's so distant sometimes. I would love to take a glance in his mind.

"So why did you come here?"
He smiled lazily. "I told you. I'm persistent. I don't like being told no." 

Reading the ending of this book really really hurt. I was so disappointed ... although.. I actually knew how this would all end.
I was still hoping .. for some kind of HE I guess. I'm a romantic to the core. I believe even those bad, ugly people with rotten hearts deserve to love and be loved. Sad.. I know :)

"Revenge has been my lover for too long," he said, breath hot on my neck. He began sliding down my body, toward the floor, arms around me.
"Power, my savior. I need to learn how to put you first, above those things. I need you to help me. I don't want to love anything more than you, Eden, so please, I'm begging you, show me how. You need to be my everything."

So anyway, I think I'll play safe for now and choose Team Ellie
for now!
I need more info about our 'boyz'. :)

Cut & Run by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban

Cut & Run series #1


A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.

Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he's paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it's hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop-bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.

Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again – this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer's knife.

5 Stars!

Yet again another unexpectedly great book!
OK, I'm obviously lying, with all the great reviews for this book..
I was expecting something good, but I most certainly never expected this to be so great!

I had this book in my TBR list for months now.
I also wanted to try something from M/M, but you know how it is.
With all the books that I want to read, I feel like a kid in a candy store. I want it all and I want it now!

And honestly I was dreading a bit to read it. I didn't knew what to expect. I was so scared it would some cheesy and mushy mushy love story.
But it isn't!
It has a great suspense mystery thing going on! Which I love!
I had little time to read this past week, but I was drawn to this book, so every time I had a minute I would read, at least a few lines!
And I think that speaks for itself.

Thinking about this book now, words of a song come to mind.. and it fits perfectly to describe the 'romantic' part of this book.

..All along it was a fever..
...A cold sweat hot-headed believer...
..I threw my hands in the air I said show me something..
...He said, if you dare come a little closer..

..Round and around and around and around we go...
....Now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know..

..Not really sure how to feel about it..
....Something in the way you move....
..Makes me feel like I can't live without you..
...It takes me all the way..
..I want you to stay..

I think that's enough. This book needs to be read. It can't be explained!


Confessions of a Kinky Wife by Justine Elyot

A secret World of Domestic Discipline 


It's difficult, as a modern woman, to admit that you want your lover to punish you. Not just a fun spanking in the bedroom – real punishment. Is it possible to be a confident twenty-first century woman and submit to your lover? Philippa knows what she wants. She wants her police officer husband to take her in hand. But how do you ask your lover to hurt you? And, if they're willing, how do you make sure that being taken in hand doesn't get out of hand?
Philippa and Dan explore the secret world of Domestic Discipline. Perhaps it will suit them, perhaps it won't. But they mean to find out, one way or the other.


*ARC received from NetGalley.

This was unexpectedly very enjoyable read!

It deserves 4 Strong Stars! 

I don't even know what I was expecting from this book.
But every time I see kinky now, I tend to think about some dark BDSM.
But in this case it wasn't that. It didn't have that dark feeling you usually get when reading kinky unspeakable stories.

It was light with great humor tossed in for a good measure!
I was devouring it, and it was fun for me to see how other people tend to deal with problems in their marriage. And unexpected was the outcome!
I rarely read books that includes already married couples, I find it somewhat boring. I love the chase and the anticipation of what to come when people meet and feel the attraction towards each other. The sex and other stuff are usually just a bonus for me. Especially if it's well written. 
I like the fighting and arguing, that feel of uncertainty. That kind of book definitely for me.
But start a book with already married couple.. where you almost guess that the main thing in it will be someone cheating ... Thanks, but no thanks..

So this book was a big surprise for me! They're married and You can still feel the heat, but also some uncertainty!
Absolutely loved it!

Although I'm not sure how would have I reacted to some actions that occurred throughout this book, but I guess we're all different and need different 'treatment' when we do a bad bad thing LOL

But I liked the way author described every important move and action, seriously! I almost could imagine feeling it myself!

So If you like light kinky stories this is a definite TO READ book for You!
