Alta Hensley-Sinners & Gin

It’s been a minute since we got to have some top shelf booze from Alta. She’s decided to rectify that with Sinners & Gin. I’m not complaining or anything, I know that Alta had some life happening, and I’m always happy to get any book, whenever it comes out. So, yay! Let’s sit down with some gin and talk about this book.

So, we start back at Spiked Roses in NOLA. Matthew, who deals in a little bit of everything, has just had a big shipment of paintings stolen from him by a mafia boss. He’s not happy about having his paintings stolen, but that’s not the worst of it. Now, the worst of it is that each of those paintings had a metric shitload of diamonds behind them. Now Matthew is out the paintings and the diamonds, and he’s pissed AF. Which, really, can you blame him? I sure don’t. Anyway, he has a plan. He needs to talk to the other owners of Spiked Roses because he needs their help. He really doesn’t need them to do much, other than show up at this kitty party he knows about. The party is right up the guys’ alleys. It’s a kinky kitty party, with pretty subs dressed up as kitties.

Aria is at the party, but she’s trying to hide. You see, it’s her father’s party, and he would blow his top if he knew that she had snuck into his kitty party. So, she’s standing on the sidelines, dressed all sexy, wearing a kitten mask, sipping champagne, and just watching. Just as she’s about to leave, a mysterious man comes up to her and starts talking to her. Then he warns her that her dad is watching, and she had better act like she belongs at the party. Turns out it’s Matthew, who has been watching Aria, because she is the key to his plan to bring down her dad, who stole from Matthew.

Matthew’s plan is to take Aria and then ransom her back to her father for his paintings and diamonds. He sneaks her out through her bedroom window, wearing nothing but a robe, and being shot at by her father’s men.

Matthew is an idiot. I mean, just an outright idiot who needs to be smacked hard AF. He’s a smart idiot who’s sneaky and tricky, but he’s an idiot none the less. I think Tennessee should’ve given Aria a belt so that she could belt his ass, or at the very least, Tennessee should’ve done it. Maybe Matthew would’ve learned then. He doesn’t listen really well all the time either. I think he hears, but if what he hears doesn’t fit into his narrative, then he isn’t quite listening. I know it sounds like I don’t like him, but I kinda do. I think that he has a code that he sticks to. It’s not my code, but it works for him.

I like Aria. I feel sorry for her because she was stuck in that house with her father and she never got to live. Then she had to deal with Matthew being a pain in her ass and kidnapping her. But even as I felt sorry for her being trapped with her father, I decided that I admired her. She survived. That’s always the important thing, I think, surviving. She may have survived by having to hide away, but you know, whatever it takes.

I can’t wait for more of these books. I think that there is at least one more of the owners. I’d have to go check.

I think that Matthew should send Tennessee a lot of roses and money and a whole lot of thank yous.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Lu

Our small group of soldiers for hire are keeping our backyard safe, doing everything in our power to keep the unthinkable from happening.
But SCIDRE? Don’t even get me started. They’ve been good at keeping secrets and covering up some pretty monumental experiments gone wrong.
It’s only a matter of time.

Bird
I envy the mainstream population for their ignorance.
I, on the other hand, tend to obsess over the impending end of the world, the apocalypse the people in charge deny is possible. But I’ve grown up being told it’s inevitable. I’ve been trained to survive it, though, honestly, I’m not certain anyone can.
My odds are better than most.
In theory.

Author’s Note: This book is a standalone as far as the romance story goes, but the zombie theme in the background will carry over into other books in the future series. That being said, this book will leave you with a few unanswered questions, for now.

She now resides in Utah with her husband-her ‘Own Personal Hero’, loving life, scuba diving as often as possible, enjoying her growing family, and writing books that are probably too steamy for Utah, but not steamy enough for the rest of the world.

BLURB:

Smith Sinclair guards the gates to the darkest corners of Charleston, and I need access for a story.

Despite my best efforts, he stonewalls me at every turn, toying with me and making outrageous demands.

He’s arrogant and unapologetic, and refuses to play fair. Yet I find his brazen confidence and scathing honesty irresistible. Staying away from him isn’t an option. Not for me.

But Smith isn’t the only danger lurking in the shadows. And as he distracts me with pleasure, each lead I chase drags me deeper into a sinister plot.

In the end, I’m bound to make a choice that could cost one of us everything.

While Bound can be read as a standalone, it is the third book in The Devil’s Due series and is best enjoyed after reading Depraved and Delivered. Bound has no cliffhanger.

About the Author:

A confirmed city-girl, EVA CHARLES moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Eva Dresden-Destroyed

Destroyed is the 3rd book in Eva’s Omega Destruction series. The first two books have been pretty damn dark, and when I say dark, you know that I mean dark. But so good. So, so, so good. And the last one is no different. Eva took everything from the other books and built it into something that is just intense and perfect. It has its moments when it’s dark, but as is often the case with a trilogy, it does get a bit lighter as it goes. Just to warn you, there is likely to be spoilers from the other books, just because of the way that they were left.

So, here’s where we are. Quinn and Tobias are living in their house with their 2 beautiful children, as well as their staff. Tobias is still trying to get Quinn pregnant and forcing her to take fertility meds. They aren’t quite taking yet, and they are making her sick. She can’t keep anything down, can’t stay awake, and is just incredibly miserable. She keeps telling Tobias how sick she is, but he doesn’t just quite believe her.

She’s also struggling against the bond that he made her form with him. She’s fighting against having his feelings in her heart and head all the time. She keeps fighting because she feels like she isn’t fighting for her life, she’s fighting for her very self. And it’s hard, so hard on her to do it. Especially since she’s fighting herself almost as much as she’s fighting him.

I think that about 1/2 of the problems that Quinn and Tobias had in this book would have been solved with better communication skills. If they had stopped and talked about some of their issues, I think that they would’ve been happier sooner, and I think that some of the other issues would’ve been figured out sooner or not even able to form.

At one point, Quinn does something that makes Tobias understand some of what she’s been feeling in her life, and I think that gives him an epiphany. He really is a typical Alpha, and I mean, not only is he an Alpha, he’s the Alpha-iest Alpha around. He is so positive that he knows what’s best and he knows everything, and he will really just roll over everyone in his way. He may hear what Quinn is saying, but he isn’t really listening to what she is saying. She needs to get his attention to get him to listen to what she’s saying. She needs to smack him upside the head with a cluex4. Smacking him with the cluex4 makes him slow down, shut up, and actually focus enough for her to get him to listen. Of course, this is all metaphorical, and it had to happen a couple of times, to truly get her point across, but it eventually got there.

I also think that Quinn could’ve backed down a little bit more when it came to her fight. I totally get wanting to have her independence and not wanting to lose her sense of self in Tobias, but I think that if she had loosened up just a little, things would’ve been better.

I’d like to get a novella sometime in the future that is all about the Kahlers in the future. I want to see how everyone presented, and Tobias and Quinn as they age.

I really like the doctor. I thought that she handled everything really well.

OK, that’s all I have to say on this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Renee Rose-Alpha Knight

Alpha Knight is the second book in Renee’s Wolf Ridge High books. These books are a spinoff of the Alpha Badboys books that she and Lee Savino wrote. Instead of taking place in Tucson, they take place in a small town that is primarily wolves, named, interestingly enough, Wolf Ridge.

Here’s our story today. Bo is a senior at Wolf Ridge, he’s a member of the football team, and works in his uncle’s auto shop along with his older brother Winslow. Bo is one of the Alpha-holes at school, but he generally stays on the straight and narrow. Then we have Sloane. She lives in the next town over, the one that is generally a little richer and a lot snobbier. She’s new to AZ. Her father was arrested for embezzlement and sent to jail, and all of the money and possessions are gone now. The one thing that isn’t gone is the debt.

See, her dad was in with some mobsters, and they want the money from her. Of course, she doesn’t have it, but she’s going to do what she can to get it. So, she starts stealing cars. Of course, then she has to figure out how to get rid of the cars. Enter Winslow. Unlike his little brother, he’s not on the straight and narrow. In fact, he’s a right prick and has been up to no good before. But now, he’s going to help Sloane fence the cars. Which doesn’t work the way that she really wants it to. For one thing, Winslow ends up shot and missing and with her money. And for another, it ends up with Bo pretending to be her long-distance boyfriend come to visit. And with both of them pretty much at each other’s throats.

I think that Sloane was very resourceful. She kept trying to do what she could so that she could keep herself and her family, especially her little cousin. I don’t recommend turning to stealing cars and fencing them off, but I applaud her initiative. She could’ve just wallowed around throwing her hands up and giving up, but she used what talents she had and did what she could.

Bo is an asshole, but I don’t think that he was as huge an asshole as he could be. I think that he has a really good heart, and a huge protective streak. As a shifter, he may not necessarily plan on protecting humans, but he does have that streak there. I think that he’s way too charming for words, and he does charm Sloane’s aunt really well.

auto-2205316_1920

I wonder what Sloane’s aunt is going to think of some of the things that happened.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
