ARC Review: Ruthless King by Meghan March

I am a huge fan of Meghan March and I was beyond excited when I saw this series coming out from her. I have loved everything I have read from her, but this one really intrigued me and I knew it was going to be special. It really felt unlike anything I have read before, and I think this just might be her best work yet! 

I am not going to go into much detail on this story because this really just needs to be experienced. This is the story of Keira Kilgore and Lachlan Mount. Lachlan Mount is powerful, and runs New Orleans. He always gets what he wants, and what he wants is Keira. After loaning money to her family's failing distillery, he knows that he has her. 

Lachlan is all alpha and super sexy. He is also almost a complete mystery! For every little clue we get as to who he is, we have so many more questions. The one thing I can tell you for sure though is that he is absolutely fascinating, and I can't wait to see more of him in the rest of this series! I am so looking forward to watching as his layers get peeled back and revealed as Meghan March continues this series. Keira was equally interesting for me. I liked her and felt connected to her, and I honestly just really enjoyed these two. Things were steamy and there was clear chemistry between Keira and Mount, and I just know that this is the tip of the iceberg and things will only get better from here. 

Overall, this book was fantastic and I was captivated from start to finish! I devoured this story from the first word to the last, like I said I really do believe that this is Meghan's best work yet. This world is a bit darker and grittier than some of her past books and it is a world that I can't get enough of. After the ending here I am anxious for more! I really don't have the words to describe how much I loved this one, so the only thing I will say is that this is a must read! Ruthless King was such a great start to the Mount trilogy and I think readers are going to love this one! Trust me when I say to go into this one blind, you won't want anything to be spoiled ahead of time.

ARC Review: The Vault: A Sinfully Sexy Collection

The Vault is a collection of sexy short stories by 22 different authors. Some of these stories have cliffhangers and lead to more, and some are just meant to be quick and hot reads that can stand alone. While anthologies are usually pretty hit or miss for me, the great thing about them is that they give you a chance to read something when you are limited on time and that they also are a way to experience the work of authors that you might not be familiar with. I love getting to take a chance on new authors without feeling like if I don't like them that I am out a bunch of money and more often than not I end up discovering authors that I wouldn't have otherwise and end up loving their books.

The Vault contains the following stories:

A.D. Justice Warning
A.M. Hargrove For The Love of My Sexy Geek 
Aleatha Romig Unconventional
C.A. Harms Raw 
Gina Whitney Stilettos and Broken Bottles 
Hilary Storm Ridin’ Dirty 
Katherine Rhodes Innuendo 
Kate Benson Redemption 
Kathy Coopmans Parole 
Katie Ashley The Plan 
Liv Morris Sweet Seconds 
M.C. Cerny Declan's Demand 
M. Stratton In His Arms 
Michelle Dare Uncuffed 
MJ Fields Terzetto 
Nina Levine Risk 
S. Moose Author Adjusting the Deal 
S.D. Hildreth Mister Prick 
T.K. Leigh Inferno 
Terri E. Laine Honey 
Tia Louise Sundown 
Toni Aleo Not The One 

While I didn't love every single one of these, I am glad that I was able to take a chance on some new stories and it helped me to read some authors that I definitely will check out more from. My favorites of this were C.A. Harms, Katie Ashley, A.M. Hargrove and Tia Louise. Each of these were so good, and are by some of my favorite authors. None of them have disappointed me yet, and they definitely didn't here. While these were my favorites though, I enjoyed many of the stories and it is hard to really go into the details when there are so many stories included in the Vault. I will say that while I loved some of these, I did have some issues with a few of the stories. Some were a part of an established series and that can be tough if you are unfamiliar with it. This was especially true for me with Katherine Rhode's Innuendo. I wanted to get into it but I felt like I just didn't know the world and things were confusing for me. 

I am really glad that I read this anthology though, and this is one I recommend to readers. Not only is there a lot of content here by several authors, but this is one of the better anthologies I have read before. There are several authors that I was new to here but will be checking out in the future. The Vault is definitely worth the read and I think readers are going to love this sexy collection.

Feature and Giveaway: Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt


Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping. Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos. When one of the masked-and-nude!-Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him…only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.

Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans. But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.


Much to Raphael’s irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involes herself in his life—and bed. Soon he’s drawn to both to her quick wit and her fiery passion. But when Iris discovers that Raphael’s past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters. Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael’s own demons?

ARC Review: Holding Onto Forever by Heidi McLaughlin

I feel like I have been waiting for this book since I first read the Beaumont Series by Heidi McLaughlin. I was always curious about the kids and wanted their stories, but Noah and Peyton were always my favorites. You could just tell there was something there, and I couldn't have been more excited when I found out they were getting their story written. 

Peyton Powell-James and Noah Westbury both had clear paths for their futures since they were kids. They both knew that football would be a part of their lives, and they each worked hard to make that a reality. Noah is now the starting quarterback for the Portland Pioneers and has a beautiful girlfriend, while Peyton has just been given an important assignment to cover a professional game from the sidelines. But when an accident changes everything, both Peyton and Noah are forced to rethink where their lives are headed and both know it might finally be time to discuss what has always been between them. 

I loved these two. It was so clear that they belonged together and that they just needed to let each other know how they really felt. Their feelings were never their problem, it really was just a matter of talking to one another and communicating things. I do feel like they were absolutely meant to be though, and I loved the strong connection that they always had. Peyton and Noah both meant so much to one another, and even if they weren't together you could tell just what the other one was to them. They had great chemistry and an undeniable bond. 

Overall, it was a great story and I really loved seeing this next generation grow up and come into their own. If you have read the Beaumont series, you will love getting to see favorite characters again and how things have progressed for each of them. This book can be read as a complete standalone though, so if you haven't read those books you don't need to in order to understand this one. I will say though that for full enjoyment I would recommend reading the Beaumont series. Not only is it great, but you really get to see how everyone got to where they are and just how deep the connections between them are. I can't wait for more from Heidi McLaughlin and this is one I definitely recommend.

ARC Review: Bad Reputation by Nicole Edwards

Bad Reputation is the first book in the new Bad Boys of Sports series by Nicole Edwards. I am a huge sports romance fan, so this one sounded like it was going to be one I loved. While it had a lot of promise, unfortunately for me this one ended up just being okay. 

Chase is known as the bad boy of hockey, used to playing hard both on and off the ice. No one knows that better than his best friend Cassie. He doesn't do commitment and he likes it that way. As much as he has tried not to notice his best friend Cassie though, he can't help but see her and want more. When they head to Vegas for a week, they both find themselves drawn to each other in a way they hadn't been before. 

I have to admit that my main issue here was the characters. I honestly wasn't really feeling anything between these two. They lacked chemistry and I just wasn't seeing a connection beyond friendship and curiosity here. I wanted to believe that there was something more there, but I just wasn't able to. I also struggled to like Cassie. There just wasn't anything I could really relate to with her and I just didn't really feel any connection to her. I did like Chase though. He was sexy and I loved his dirty talk. I just wish I had felt something more here with these two. 

My other problem here was the pacing of this story. The first half or so seemed to move slow and often times it felt like it was dragging. The second half on the other hand seemed to accelerate and felt rushed to me. It just never felt like it had a good flow to me and that made it hard to get into the story for me. I do think that Nicole Edwards is worth giving another shot though, but unfortunately this wasn't one of my favorites.

ARC Review: Rule by Jay Crownover

I have read books in the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover before, but I will admit that I read them completely out of order. I hadn't started with the first book in the series, so while I knew how things ended up for Rule I was looking forward to actually seeing how he got to where he did. While I did like Rule and Shaw, I will say that there were times in this book that I seriously wanted to shake them both.  

Shaw has loved Rule since she first met him, but everyone seems to know it except Rule himself. While at first they look like complete opposites, Shaw has always seen and loved Rule for exactly who he is. But even if he was the type to commit to one girl, Shaw belonged to his dead twin brother and he refuses to go there. But when a drunken birthday leads to an unforgettable night together, both Rule and Shaw must figure out what it means for each of them and if there is possibly a future together. 

I liked both Rule and Shaw, and I thought that they were good together. These two had a lot more in common than you would first think, and I enjoyed seeing them get to know one another better. There was so much more beneath the surface to each of them, and seeing them explore that was really interesting to me. Shaw was kind and she understood that Rule had issues. For the most part she was patient and seemed to know what he needed. Rule on the other hand struggled to embrace change in his life, even when he wanted it. The back and forth with these two drove me nuts, and I really thought that they just needed to talk to one another a lot of the time. I hated that they would run away from each other when they should have been running towards each other.  

The other thing that bothered me here was the fact that both of them let their parents treat them horribly. Besides avoiding them at times, they really didn't do much about it and that drove me absolutely nuts. These people did and said horrible things, and there really wasn't much resolution until the end and at that point it was a bit too little too late for me. There was also an incident that happened that I wasn't a fan of at all. I felt like it was forgiven a bit too easily and even though it wasn't as bad as it could have been, I was never able to really forget that it had happened even if the characters were able to move beyond it. Overall, this wasn't my favorite of the series though I did enjoy it. I like Rule and Shaw, and I do believe they belong together. I love that Jay Crownover gives us unique and different characters than the norm, and the Marked Men all have such strong personalities. The camaraderie between them keeps the read invested and anxious for more, and I look forward to reading more of this series that I haven't so far.
