Blurb

I knew falling for him was wrong. I
did it anyway, his half smiles and blue eyes pulling me deeper.  Blue eyes that made me soar. He wasn’t mine
to keep, though. And like all good and rare things, it came to an end.

Then he strolls into my life, armed with
dimples and gray eyes. Gray eyes that ground me. He smashes through my
defenses, stealing what is left of my heart.

Now my heart is a war
zone, past and present battling for my forever.

They say lightning
doesn’t strike the same place twice. I call bullshit on that theory.

Review

I think I'm still processing everything that happened in  this book... there were so many emotions. But honestly for me what pervailed beginning to end was pure damn ANGST. My goodness, Autumn about killed me and I have no doubt you'll agree with me when you read it. I had been expecting it, I mean I knew how their story had ended before and I knew it was still going to be angsty as heck but I actually had no idea the kind of angst Autumn had in store for us. My heart was constantly acking for Sol, and Grace too but mostly Sol.

Ok, so I think everyone knows this from the blurb and all the teasers that there's a new guy in Grace's life so yes this book is a love triangle.. and boy this might have been one of the angstiest and hardest ones I had to read because that new guy is kind of hard not love too. And trust me I was trying really hard not to like him and I was on pins and needles hoping for him to do something wrong so neither I or Grace had to like anymore. BECAUSE I'M #TEAMSOL ALL THE WAY FOREVER! He's my baby, and I want him happy and to get his girl back!

But yes he was super cute and he really liked Grace BUT he also has baggage, physically and emotionally and that baggage makes him jealous and when he's jealous he is a jerk, so yeah he ain't perfect. Grace is very conflicted, she's still in love with Sol and trying to move on but what she feels for him is unbreakable, unstoppable, then again she really likes the new guy too. I love Grace but I did not like some of her actions, some of her decisions. I get that she wanted to be 1st in Sol's life but I feel like she only ever thought of how he was struggling too after she did something wrong and I just ugh. I really didn't want her and the new guy to happen or for things to go that far because now everyone is hurt and things are not gonna end well on anyone's end no matter who she ends up with. Because I know that third and final book is gonna be angst filled too, I feel a lot of emotions are coming after that ending, and some drama and a whole lot of hurt.

Disgraceful was angst filled goodness through and through. You will feel conflicted (or not) alongside Grace and you will go through things with her like they are happening to you. Autumn's writing is just as beautiful and powerful as ever, and she managed to love her characters more and more. Sol, I just love him to pieces. Grace, I love her but I hate some of her thoughts/actions and new guy well I've said enough on that. But even there's so much more to this trilogy than just the three main characters... there's a lot of second plot lines that I just want more of! I love all the side characters, Ian and MJ are couple and bff goals!!And Grace's mom, I adore her! + all the new characters, I want most of them to get their own books!!! Need them.

As I said, I am and will always be #TeamSol, they are two pieces of the same soul and they are meant to be together. Sol deserves to get his girl after everything he's been through... he's found himself again, kind of and he's ready to fight for her. And he's gonna have to fight hard because she is currently taken by the new guy and things are quite serious. Autumn about killed me with that ending, for real. I was not expecting something like that... then again that moment showed exactly who she should be with. New guy showed his true colors again and Sol was cool, collected and a freaking hero. I could conjure up a thousand theories for how the 3rd book will start but I know Autumn will end up surprising me anyway with something I won't see coming and you know what... I cannot wait. Make my heart hurt reall good but please don't hurt my baby or I will hurt you (kidding, I love you).

About COLDHEARTED BOSS (available June 6th)

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.
Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.
Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:
I know my boss.
Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.
Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.
He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.
It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.
Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.
A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.
My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.
My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

Allie

When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.

Jess

I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.


.

“Did you hear that?” I ask. 

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips. 

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me. 

I give a slight shake of my head in response. 

“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?” 

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance. 

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding. 

My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys. 

Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless. 

“Was that convincing enough?”

Review

I'm dead! Gah, I had missed my King. 

Book 2 was just as epic as the first one. Starting off just has Cruel Sanctuary had ended, we get to see Aisleen being the bada$$ she is. This woman proved exactly what I already knew, she is strong and brave and the perfect match for Damon. While we get to see Aisleen strong side come out, we simultaneously get to see Damon's vulnerable side. He feels insane without his Queen and he will do anything to get her back but the girl saves herself in this one (sort of).
There were so many surprising and unexpected things happening while Aisleen was held captive, I really loved that part of the plot because it definitely caught me by surprise.  And later on, when more things were revealed regarding the whole Los Muertos situation... and trust me I conjured up many teories of my own and I picked up clues that actually weren't clues at all xD So kudos to you Tara, you got me!

When it comes to Damon and Aisleen's relationship it was thriving in in the midst of all the chaos and surprises that had them making sudden actions you'll be happy about and also making them suspicious over everything. It was all good between them until there's this thing that happens (sorry for the vagueness) and suddenly things are not okay at all. And I just think that this 'thing' was taken out of proportion and was just for the sake of having a conflict between them, which to me was not necessary at all, specially with everything else already happening around them. BUT it made Damon finally admit to himself his feelings for Aisleen and want to say those three "little" words. Gah, Damon being romantic was both funny and so darn cute.

Then when Aisleen learned all the secrets Damon had been keeping about her past, I honestly thought that that would have been the thing that would have caused the conflict between them but no, Aisleen let Damon be there for her and I was so happy about it. Seeing Aisleen learn about her half sister was so emotional, I loved that that made their bond even stronger and that she had family other than Damon and her ailing mother.

Corrupt Savior was everything I was expecting it to be. Damon and Aisleen were both better than ever and I just loved them both so much! You get so many sides of them both in this book. Damon is just as ruthless but you definitely get to see his softer side that only Aisleen can bring out of him. And she was so fierce, her character growth was just amazing! She was a Queen fit to rule alongside her King, there was no one better or no one who could stand beside him other than her. And if you thought that the last book was HOT, then you are not ready for this one! Prepare to be set to flames!

Corrupt Savior was definitely Tara Leigh's darkest book to date and I loved seeing her venture into a different trope and absolutely rocking it. For someone who just recently started reading dark romances and learning to love them, Tara gave me two delicious books that I loved and devoured and will forever remember. This duet is possibly my favorite ever of her books and yes I have read and loved them all.



Blurb:
I am the monarch of Manhattan’s underworld.
A corrupt king, ruling a sinful empire.
I wasn’t born to the crown.
Nevertheless, I wear it well.
Aislinn Granville is the Crown Jewel of my empire—my queen.
To my enemies, she’s my Achilles heel—a perfect pawn.
Without her, I am a wounded warrior.
A ruthless, relentless beast.
There is nowhere she can be taken that I won’t find her.
No adversary I won’t crush to get her back.
Even if I have to burn this city to the ground.


Excerpt:

My heartbeat is an erratic, distracting pitter-patter against my ribs as I take in the stark beauty of the man standing in front of me. He looks like the same man I ran from. Almost.

The same rich black hair and inky eyelashes. The same strong, shadowed jawline and high, elegant cheekbones. The same spark of intensity lighting up those dark, dark eyes.
But now there are smudges beneath them. And faint horizontal lines, like the silvery remnants of a shattered spider web, crossing his forehead.
Damon is glaring at me like an adversary he’s torn between spanking or fucking. There is yearning in his gaze, a faint glimmer of tenderness beneath his infuriated expression.
I like it. A lot.
The panic and fear and pure terror that filled my veins just a few hours ago hasn’t yet evaporated. Those intense emotions are still there, like toxins that have yet to be flushed from my system. I don’t want to be treated with kid gloves. Not by Damon King.
I need his intensity now more than ever. I am desperate to revel in the raging storm Damon and I create when we’re together. The kind of storm that deserves a name. Deserves to be written in history books for its power . . . and for the toll of its destruction.
I want the shocking illumination of lightning. The ominous energy of thunder.
I want to give and take.
Clash and break.
Writhe and shake.
“Damon.” I say his name like a warning. I need the savage who claimed me as his own. My savage king.
He presses a firm kiss to my forehead, his fingers lightly pushing into the hair at the base of my scalp. “Tell me this,” he says. “Is there any hurt I can’t kiss better?”
The throaty rumble of Damon’s voice is like a liberal pour of molasses on my frayed nerves. “No.” My nose is flush with his chest and I breath deep that scent I didn’t think I would ever smell again. Wood and whiskey and raw masculinity. So damn intoxicating.
He sweeps his tongue along the rim of my ear. “Is there any hurt I can’t lick better?”
The tension in my shoulders eases as I flatten my palms against his chest. “No.”
Damon lifts my chin, our eyes locking on each other. “Is there any hurt I can’t fuck better?”
My cheeks warm as I draw my lower lip between my teeth. Then I shake my head slowly, “No.”
He smiles that darkly seductive grin and my stomach flips. “Let’s go take a shower.”
I nod my head eagerly. A long hot shower sounds perfect. A long hot shower—with my savage king—sounds downright exquisite. By the time the water is running, my borrowed bathrobe is just a white smudge of bad memory strewn across the tile floor.
Damon begins unbuttoning his shirt and I eagerly reach for his belt. When he is as naked as I am, he cups my chin between his thumb and forefingers and tips it upward. His kiss is hard but not punishing. The perfect amount of pressure.
I moan low in my throat.
He growls in return. And when we pull apart, we are wearing matching lust-drunk grins.
“Do you trust me?” he asks.
“I thought you said I shouldn’t trust anyone who has to ask.”
“I’m asking now.”
The truth falls from my lips. “With my life.”

Review: The Man I Can't Have, Shanore Williams

Photographer: Wong Sim
Model: Mitchell Wick
Cover Design by Cover It Designs
Amazon Universal → http://mybook.to/TMICH

Blurb:

It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…



I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.



The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.



Of course I hired him.



I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.



He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it. Unfortunately, that lucky woman can’t be me.



Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.



So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?




REVIEW

Love forbidden romance? What about age gaps? Shanora writes some of the best ones I ever read and she's got a new one just for you...
Mr. Ward is something else. He's all man, a little broken at that. which just makes him all the more special and lovable to me.

I loved Gabby from the very beginning as well, I love her spirit and how passionate she is. She's a recently married woman who just moved to a new home, in a new state away from everyone she knows. She's brave and sweet and most of all lonely. Knowing no one and having her husband out of town most of time due to work, she spends a lot of time by herself in a big house. So when she hires Mr. Ward to work on her backyard and they share this connection right from the get-go, she tries to develop this friendship with him... only that friendship slowly but surely turns into something more special, more meaninful, something that is just more. And Gabby slowly discovers that Marcel is the right guy for her, in every possible way, if only she wasn't already married... if only she had met Marcel before meeting Kyle.

Kyle seems like a nice man in the beginning until you start to notice little things here and there, first on your own and then when both Gabby or Marcel address them. He is the picture perfect guy but you know he's hiding behind this mask and I am so curious to find out more about him because there is still so much we don't know in this book. I have a lot of questions regarding him and his secrets.
I swear Shanora kept me on my toes, waiting for the pin to drop. I knew it was gonna end in a big cliffhanger so from the beginning I was thinking of crazy theories and I'm usually good at predicting things but not this time, this time Shanora got me good! I was not expecting that ending at all but it made a lot of sense.

The Man I Can't Have is a captivating forbidden romance that will reel you in from the get go. It's a slow burn and it's a beautiful story of a sudden deep friendship that both characters needed that turns into something much more special, love. It is so weet to see these two fall for each other no matter how wrong it is. But there is still much more to come, much more to learn and a little while to wait. I'll be here dreaming of Mr. Ward while I wait for The Man I Need.
Don't miss the conclusion of the Ward Duet in June!
