Konstantin Skumin has never wanted to sign on the dotted line for a woman of his choosing. While it is the Bratva way, it’s a tradition he refuses to practice. A badman with desires both dark and relentless, he is the opposite of gentle. Even so, it cannot be denied that he harbors dreams of romantic notions he will not willingly compromise.


Kiska Barysheva has resigned herself to her fate. In three years’ time, what little freedom she has as a Bratva printsessa will be ripped away from her. The ink has long since dried, and she will be wed to the man of her father’s choosing. The only dream she has to cling to will be short lived, but she refuses to take for granted a minute of her dancing career—her small glimmer of happiness.

Yet, when the scheming of their fellow Russian badmen puts Kiska in Konstantin’s care, everything they thought they wanted changes. Their love is forbidden—his touch worthy of death–but neither one of them has the strength to say no. Their hearts have chosen, and they can’t let go. 

*Recommended for Readers 18+ due to, Language, Violence, & Sexual Content.

New Release & My Review- Rough & Real by Hayley Faiman

Title: Rough and Real
Series: Notorious Devils #7
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: January 22, 2018

Ivy Gaines has loved one man in her lifetime. After fifteen years of marriage and three kids, reality hasn’t changed that—but sometimes love isn’t enough.
West “Camo” Gaines has never wanted anyone the way he wants his wife, but the Notorious Devils’ club life has opened his eyes and awakened a desire he knows he can’t explore with the mother of his children.

Lies, misunderstanding, betrayal and silence are the bitter pills they swallow daily as the marriage they thought would last forever begins to unravel. It isn’t until club rivalries threaten to shatter their entire world that they realize how much they have to fight for.
When things get rough and real, they’re forced to remember just how deep their love goes.

 


Tammy Cole – “Hayley weaves a story that will take your emotions on a ride. This is a fantastic end to a great series!”


Bookalicious Book Babes – “ROUSING, Captivating, intense, intriguing, Hayley has done it yet again I cannot believe this is the last book of this amazing, decadent,brilliant, raw, series!”


Cheryl Norris – “This was a fantastic conclusion to the Notorious Devils series.”

Review

This book was just what the title promises.. Rough and REAL. Hayley touches on a theme that many romance writers do not, emotions and events that happen after thirteen years of marriage.
I found that of all the amazing heroines in this series, and there are so many, I identified with Ivy the most. I felt her frustration, her commitment to family, when she was torn, I was torn, when she was angry with West, I hated him right along with her. I was cheering her along the whole way to stay true to herself and to find herself as a woman and not only a mom and West’s old lady.
West, let me tell you, he brought out some real emotions from me as well. Even when I hated him, and I really did there for a while, I felt his internal struggle. I wanted to grab him and yell at him to just tell Ivy, tell her how you feel and what you want.
Hayley turned up the heat factor to scorching in Real.

I will admit, I felt a bit of trepidation going into this book, knowing it was an end to my favorite motorcycle club bad boys. In this final installment of the Notorious Devils series, Hayley wraps things up so perfectly. We see a new era of the club starting, one that leads us to know our favorite Devils are living lives that make them happy. I was afraid there would be more sadness at saying goodbye to this series, but Hayley left me with a huge smile on my face, rather than huge tears in my eyes. Plus the little extra surprise at the end was the ultimate! It made my heart happy!

Memphis by Ginger Scott
A Contemporary New Adult Romance

Release day: February 23

Goodreads

Blurb:

My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved.

The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict.I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney.

At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle until his very last breath.

He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and I’ve lost so much of myself already.

But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and trust stripped away from life.

I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.

Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Contemporary Romance

per·son·al foul

noun:

a rule violation involving illegal contact.

Violated. That’s how Trent makes me feel. But I can’t leave him. I owe him too much.

Illegal contact. That’s what it is the first time Cole touches me. Except, it doesn’t feel wrong.

I shouldn’t break the rules–and yet, I’m afraid that if I don’t, the personal foul will be called against me.

My future. My heart. My life is at stake. I can’t betray myself. I won’t. 

**Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

review
Hayley scored a touchdown with this book.

She made the things that should have been wrong about Jessa and Cole’s relationship seem just so right! The taboos in this story had me hooked. I loved the characters BECAUSE of the struggles and changes they went through to be together. They questioned themselves but ultimately made changes and decisions that brought them together and made them happy.

I loved that Cole saw the damage that Jessa has lived with and fell for her because of it. He showed her that she was worth more than what she was going through. His love gave her the strength to break free and truly find herself.

Hayley evoked all the emotions in this book. Happy, sad, stressed, angry, compete hatred for two certain characters, and absolute elation at the ending.

This will definitely go on my re-read shelf.

1-Click Addict Support Group – “I love it when I am pleasantly surprised by a book. Hayley Faiman is a new to me author so I had no idea what to expect but I really enjoyed this one.”

Crystal, Goodreads – “Hayley scored a touchdown with this book.”

Daphne, Goodreads – “A winner from the first page.”

 

I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.

New Release & My Review- Heartless by R.C. Martin

Title: Heartless
Author: R.C. Martin
Genre: Fiction/Forbidden Romance 
Release Date: December 4, 2017 

 

He was faithful, until he wasn’t.

She was honest, until first touch…

And against all that is pure and noble, they fell in love.

Warning: This is not one of those novels where the characters’ actions are justified. It is merely a story about two people–two flawed humans–who fall in love under forbidden circumstances. It is intended for audiences 18+ years of age due to explicit sexual content.
review

I’ve never hated to love a book as much as this one! RC Martin tackles a taboo many think is too taboo to read. But I LOVED this story!!

Michael is not your typical hero, but try as you might to not like him for the choice he makes, you will love him for what is truly inside.
Blaine is not a weak woman who falls for Michael’s money and power. She is just a woman who opens her heart to a man.

Love or hate the theme of the story, you will FEEL so much while reading this book. Sometimes it will be uncomfortable, sometimes it will give you the warm fuzzies, and sometimes you will be hot and bothered, in typical RC Martin fashion.

 


Author Hayley Faiman – “Intense. Emotional. Sexy. Highly Addictive.”


Crystal, Goodreads – “I’ve never hated to love a book as much as this one! RC Martin tackles a taboo many think is too taboo to read. But I LOVED this story!!”


Konny, Goodreads – “Heartless is gritty and raw, you can feel the characters emotions in every word. Heartless is beautifully thought out, beautifully written and beautifully told.”

 

I’m a born and bred Coloradan. While I now reside in Virginia, the land of the Rocky Mountains is where I’ve left a piece of my heart and where my characters come to life. I started writing love stories when I was seventeen, and I haven’t been able to stop! With me, you’ll find that I dabble in a few different romance genres, but my voice is one that’s all about the heart. Writing is my dream; and as a dreamer, you can rest assured that there are many more novels in my head that I can hardly wait to share.

My Review

Misadventures on the Night Shift was one hot, erotic romance with a bit of healing and heart thrown in. This book had a high steam factor, but it was so much more than just the steamy scenes. There was hopefulness, healing, and finding strength.

Night Shift hotel clerk Abby finally came face to face with her long time celebrity crush. But an indecent proposal he made to her threatened to bring back a past that she worked hard to put behind her.

Rock star Lucas F*ing Ford needed some inspiration. When a spitfire night shift hotel clerk was not afraid to tell him like it is, he found his muse.

I love that this book was about more than just the heat. There was a level of intimacy that I definitely didn’t see coming from the way these two started out. I loved that Lucas became so much more than the wild rock star he started out to be.

Misadventures on the Night Shift was a fun, steamy read. It was the second book I’ve read in the Misadventures series, and the first book I’ve read from Lauren Rowe. I will definitely be looking for more books from this new-to-me author, and from the Misadventures series.

“I was sure my heart had withered away years ago, but then you smiled at me and I felt it beat again.” ~Gage

Years ago, I fell in love with my best friend’s little brother. Then, he took his own life, leaving me shattered and unable to piece my heart back together. I’ve been a zombie for nine long years. Until a crazy, gorgeous man walked into Heathens Ink and injected color back into my world of gray. No matter how hard I try to resist Beck he just won’t give up on me. I would need steel willpower to withstand his gorgeous long legs in his high heels, and his drawer full of lacy lingerie. But is this just a kinky hook up or does it have the possibility for more?

“We’re both broken, but our jagged edges fit together well” ~ Beck

When you’re half of a whole you never contemplate what life would be like without your matching piece. Since my twin sister, Brianna, died last year, nothing I do seems to quiet my soul. I know there has to be some way for me to feel happy and whole again. And, when I look into the pained eyes of the tattoo artist at Heathens Ink I feel like I have a purpose. I can’t explain it, but I feel like I have to find a way to put him back together.

Shattered Pieces is book 4 in The Heathens Ink Series and can be read as a standalone.

EXCERPT

“Dance with me.” Beck holds his hand out to me. His eyes spark with amusement at what I’m sure is the obvious horror in my expression.

“I don’t dance.”

“Come on, you’re supposed to be trying fun, new things. I’m not expecting Fred Astaire, just stand in my general vicinity and nod your head to the beat.”

I sigh in resignation and take Beck’s hand, refusing to notice how soft his skin is or how good it feels to touch someone, however casually.

Still clutching my hand, Beck starts to dance. He starts out tame, simply swaying to the music. But, before long he’s spinning and shimmying like a ballerina on crack. Even being goofy and over the top he’s utterly graceful. And the joy in his expression is heartbreaking in its beauty.

When he spins out and then into my arms like a tango dancer, a laugh escapes from my chest, too full of a warmth to contain it.

“You have a really nice laugh,” Beck says, smiling up at me.

My heart thuds violently against my ribcage. Some long-forgotten place in my brain wakes up from its long slumber and starts to make irrational demands like kiss him and make Beck mine.

I pull my arms back, forcing a smile as blood rushes in my ears. Beck isn’t mine. He can never be mine. I had someone who was mine and I broke him beyond repair.

“I’m afraid I’m a bit rusty,” I admit with chagrin.

“Never too late to pick it back up again,” Beck reasons, stepping close again but not so close to warrant another retreat on my part.

His lips are rosy pink and so soft, slightly parted and unbelievably tempting. I can’t remember if we were discussing laughing or kissing and I don’t really care.

“For the first time in a long time I’m starting to wonder if that’s true.” The hope my statement sparks in Beck’s eyes forces me to backpedal as guilt washes over me. “It feels wrong to imagine happiness is possible, even in some vague, future way.”

“I’m not going to give you any trite bullshit like saying Johnny would’ve wanted you to be happy. I didn’t know Johnny and even if I had there’s no way to know what he would’ve wanted because he’s gone. But you’re still here. You still have a life, a heart, and the right to be happy whether now or in a vague future.” The way Beck holds my gaze is like a cobra ensnaring a mouse. “You don’t need Johnny’s permission to move on and be happy. You only need to give yourself permission.”
