I gasped for air and counted my last breaths.

One, pain shot up my stomach.

Two, my throat burned.

I kept looking at the sky, as I lost any will to move.

Before my eyes closed, my last thoughts were for Andrea.

They thought prison would change me, that isolation would make me weak, maybe break me. But I wasn’t alone, I always had the darkness with me.

My name is Alejandro De la Crux and I never let anyone cross me without paying the price, their lives for my honour.

I was left to rot in prison by my ex wife and her lover, The Killer. That Rat.

They thought they could run away from me, that they could live happily ever after. No one can fool the devil, no one can fool Alejandro De la Crux.

“Patience, revenge takes time. But it will come, my time will come.”

~~My Review~~

The beginning of this book almost made me think I was reading something else, it’s not what I was expecting! It does make sense though just keep reading! It’s just another one of Claire’s unexpected plot twists, but it fits, it fits so well!

The Devil’s Plaything draws you straight back into the Intricate paranormal world created by Claire. I had no idea where this book would take me and these characters. The characters have continued to grow and evolve, they showed just how much as they continue to face what Claire throws at them.

Claire’s writing style flows almost effortlessly, she has an incredible talent for writing paranormal with some seriously mind-blowing twists and turns. This book has things that I could never have anticipated happening! Her characters continue to get under my skin and I even found myself liking some of the bad guys; I mean who could resist Lucifer??

I have loved this book; well 2 books; so much. These characters are amazing, Claire is so talented as a writer!
Even though this book is paranormal romance/erotica, I would highly recommend it to anyone, even if erotica isn’t your thing, you might be surprised by this series.

I’m still not sure I’m ready to say goodbye to the characters yet, Claire please write more Mavi and Lucifer.

The Devil You Know; Ceasefire Book #1

~~Blurb~~

My name is Mavi StClair.

I’m a monster with a pretty face. An assassin in trade. Guilt, remorse, it’s never touched me. I’m as cold as they come and just as professional.

Dealing death has always come easily, and I inflict it with ease. It fuels and feeds the twisted darkness inside me.

My downfall begins with a single night of untamed passion leaving me hungering for more of him.

One wicked soul recognizing another.

Now he owns me.

The lines of what I know are blurred.

I’m playing his game.

A pawn, eternally tangled in a web of secrets and lies.

He won’t let me go.

Taking pleasure in my fall from grace.

Question is, can I save myself before I’m damned completely?

~~My Review~~

I’ve been really naughty! I read that book when it first came out and I’m only now writing my review and its July!!

This book was an incredible read, it dark, twisted, emotional and erotic. The Devil You Know pushes the boundaries of your imagination, it reveals all the hidden corners in your mind, the places where your dark desires hide.

This story has created a world and characters that suck you in and keep you there. It also leaves you wanting; no needing; more. I reached the end, but I still didn’t feel ready to leave these characters behind.

This book has been written extremely well. Claire’s characters are so full of emotion and personality, each character shows that they are multi-layered and displays the many different traits depending on the situation they face.

These characters have definitely worked their way under my skin and they will continue to have a place in my heart long after the story ends!

Review: Bermuda by Robert Enright

∼∼Blurb∼∼

Discover how it all began… Franklyn Jones is a devoted husband, a loving father and a middle manager working in London. His only secret is he can see ‘The Otherside’, a world that hides in the shadows of our own. After his claims of these creatures leads to the loss of his family and his commitment to a mental health facility, Franklyn’s life came to a complete stand still.

Eventually, Franklyn is recruited by the BTCO, a secret agency that monitors and maintains the truce between both worlds. Thrust into an advanced training regime based on his ‘gifts’, Franklyn soon finds himself out on his first case, investigating the disappearance of several people in Elvedon Forest in Suffolk.

Closely monitored by his trainer, Denham, Franklyn edges further into this new world, hunting a violent entity that lives within the trees, whilst also being watched by a mysterious warrior. The explosive prequel novella to DOORWAYS and THE ABSENT MAN, BERMUDA takes you back to where it all started.

Are you ready for the answers?

∼∼My Review∼∼

Bermuda takes us back to the beginning, this is our chance to learn about Franklyn ‘Bermuda’ Jones. We are taken back to Franklyn’s life before the BTCO. Bermuda allows us to understand what he went through and what has happened to make him who he is today.

Franklyn is found by the BTCO and he is showing the BTCO headquarters, where he begins his training. Whilst undergoing training a case comes in that the BTCO decide that Franklyn can handle along with Denham.

So story aside… I’d hate to post any spoilers 😉

I think that Rob has written a fantastic prequel to the other books in this series. Bermuda answers the questions that I had after reading Doorways and The Absent Man. Bermuda clarifies the part of Franklyn’s life before the BTCO as well as the beginning of his BTCO career.

Rob’s writing style grabbed my attention from the very beginning and held me captive until the very last word, and even then I still wanted more!

I felt like I was there right alongside Franklyn experiencing everything with him. His thoughts and feelings felt as though they could have been my own.

Having finished reading Bermuda I now feel as though I understand Franklyn a lot more. Franklyn has experienced so much, he has developed, learnt and grown so much since he was just Franklyn Jones, husband and father!

I like the guy and genuinely do feel for him. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every page of Bermuda and I cannot wait to see what Rob has in store for Franklyn in the future.

Honestly, if you haven’t read Bermuda you really need to and if you haven’t read any of the other Bermuda books you really should, I don’t think you’d be disappointed.

Excerpt

 

Robert – Chapter One

It was in a small room in a villa in Tuscany that my life changed forever–again.

Everything I knew, or believed, had been a lie. Just over Forty years of thinking one man was my father, and that he had been killed with my mother, was disproved with a simple DNA test. I barely remembered him; I hardly remembered my mother. Just a week after discovering the letters, I’d found the man who would protect my wife, who was the love of Evelyn’s life, was also my biological father. To say my head had been fucked up was an understatement.

****

“Do you want to talk?” I heard. I had been sitting on the edge of the fountain in the courtyard of the villa.

I looked up to see Brooke walking toward me. I patted the wall.

“Sit with me,” I said.

She picked up my hand and threaded her fingers through mine as she did. I stared at her for a moment. Her blue eyes were ringed, faintly, with dark circles and laugh lines fanned out across her skin. She looked tired and I guessed my overactive brain working day and night had been the cause of that.

“How do you feel today?” she asked gently.

I sighed and closed my eyes; I raised my face to catch the last of the day’s sun before I spoke.

“Better. One minute I have no biological family; the next, I have a father, a half brother and a half sister. It’s been a little difficult to process all that,” I confessed.

“No shit,” she replied, with a chuckle.

I turned to look at her. I shifted my body until I was facing her and traced my fingers down her cheek.

“I’ve been a complete prick this past week, haven’t I?”

She tried to hide the smirk. “I know of Mr. Angry, Mr. Playful, Mr. Sarcastic, and all the other misters that make up Robert Stone, but I’m a little unsure who’s with us right now.”

“Mr. Honest?” I offered.

“Ah, it could be. Therefore the answer would be, yes, you have been a complete prick this week. But with good reason, Robert,” she said.

I laughed quietly.

“Have you spoken to him today?”

Initially, after I’d discovered Rocco was my father, we’d talked, he’d cried, but then sadness settled over me. Forty years of memories were shattered on the opening of an envelope that contained evidence and I struggled with it. I’d endured years of abuse at the hands of my aunt, yet I had a father who could have rescued me from her. It was an unrealistic thought, of course, he didn’t know about me, but it bothered me.

Reviews: Bermuda Jones Case Files #1 & #2 by Robert Enright

Doorways; Bermuda Jones Case Files #1 by Robert Enright

~~Synopsis~~

There is more to the shadows than just darkness

The Otherside is located at the fringes of our world, hiding in plain sight and existing within our shadows. Shielded from humanity, the Otherside is watched over by the BTCO, a highly secret government agency, whose members all possess ‘The Knack’, a genetic anomaly that allows them to see this other world.

Franklyn ‘Bermuda’ Jones is the BTCO’s finest agent, the only human to have passed to the Otherside and returned. Gifted with the ability to physically interact with both worlds, Bermuda reluctantly stands between both worlds, pining for the life he had to leave behind and the daughter he can no longer see. Teamed with Argyle, an enigmatic Otherside warrior, Bermuda is assigned the case of a missing woman who has vanished under mysterious circumstances.

As Bermuda delves further into the disappearance, he uncovers a threat that could destroy the truce between two worlds…and finds himself in a race against time to safeguard humanity’s very existence.

Discover a new world in this fast-paced urban fantasy packed with thrills, action and the odd one liner.

~~My Review~~

I’ve been really lucky, and I’ve met Rob. He was a signing in Peterborough last October, this was the first time I had ever heard about him. He’s a lovely bloke, my only regret was not purchasing a signed copy of his books, maybe next time though.

This is the first of Rob’s books that I’ve read, and it will not be the last one!

Bermuda Jones is different he has the ‘knack’; the ability to see what other people can’t. It is because of this that Bermuda works for a government agency that is so secret almost no one knows it exists. When people start going missing Bermuda and his partner Argyle are sent to investigate the disappearances and put them to put an end to them. Will they be able to get one step ahead and stop the next one from happening?

This book had me utterly hooked from the start. Doorways to me is a mixture of supernatural/ fantasy and crime thriller with some mystery and I think it works really well. I have loved how Doorways brings together the fantasy/supernatural world as well as the real world. The book is set in the real world but with creatures from the ‘otherside’ in it too. Doorways explains these ‘others’ as creatures from the ‘otherside’ that exist in the real world but can’t be seen by everyone. The ‘neithers’ are creatures from the ‘otherside’ who work and fight for the real world like Argyle and Vincent.

Even though the ‘others’ and the ‘otherside’ are thought to be fantasy and made up, I found myself more than once thinking what if they are real? what if they do exist but we just can’t see them? Rob has given these ‘other’ characters a life which is very believable, Bermuda is portrayed in a very realistic way, I really do feel for the guy, because of his gift (or curse as he calls it) he’s been through and lost so much, and that is something he’s still struggling to deal/cope with. I love how this guy despite hating that he has the ‘knack’ still continues to fight and tries save everyone, all whilst flaunting his lack of respect for his superiors at the BTCO. 

I found Rob’s writing to be very informative and descriptive, which makes envisioning the story really easy, it’s almost like watching a movie in your own mind! It’s clear that Rob has invested a lot of energy, time, love and care into writing Doorways.

Doorways is packed full of mystery action and humour too; the humour does break-up the more serious tense moments incredibly well.

I feel that Doorways is a great start to the Bermuda Case Files Series and I’m itching to see just what happens next.

On to The Absent Man!

Yeah, I have that ready and waiting on my Kindle 🙂 

The Absent Man; Bermuda Jones Case Files #2 by Robert Enright

~~Synopsis~~

Something is killing…

A woman is found dead in her flat on a freezing night in Glasgow, her heart ripped from her chest. With no signs of a weapon or forced entry. Hours later, her heart is delivered to the Necropolis on the outskirts of town.

Six months after stopping the terrifying Barnaby atop Big Ben, Bermuda finds himself on the hunt for a killer in a city he doesn’t know with a police force that doesn’t want him. With no links between the victims and the death toll rising, Bermuda has to face a sceptical detective, a seemingly distracted Argyle and an unknown horror that stalks from the shadows.

All in the name of answering one question…

Who is The Absent Man?

~~Book Links~~

Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon US

~~My Review~~

It’s been 6 months since Bermuda and Argyle saved the world from Barnaby. Now Bermuda & Argyle are being sent to Glasgow to the track another killer. This one is ripping the heart clean out of its victims.

As Bermuda and Argyle hunt down this murderer they seem to be unaware of the horror that lurks in the shadows, stalking them too! Can Bermuda and Argyle stop this murderer, or will they become the hunted?

Once again, I was thoroughly hooked from the very beginning. What’s not to love about this book. It is jampacked from cover to cover with action, creatures from another world, emotion and twists.

Bermuda had just started trying to repair some parts of his personal life when he was sent to Glasgow, this sets back his progress when he misses his daughter’s birthday and fails to phone her first thing due to being unconscious.

Bermuda is an amazing character he constantly puts the needs of the BTCO and the world before himself and his personal life. As well as having to hunt for killer Bermuda must deal with the Glaswegian police and the wrath of the BTCO seniors and his own guilt and emotions.

Rob has such an amazing way with his words. He has created another world right alongside his real world, both worlds are incredibly realistic and believable. The characters are fitting and have a real ability to get under your skin, they had begun to feel like friends in the first book and now that friendship is reaffirmed.

The writing style of Rob is clear and has a seamless flow to it. He can swap from action scenes to more personal scenes/moments with ease. Each scene leads effortlessly to the next. Rob packs so much detail into his writing, the time emotion and energy that Rob has put into his writing is clear to see.

I have loved every page in The Absent Man and I’m really looking forward to seeing what Robert has in store for Bermuda and Argyle in book 3!

Rob, is it done yet? *Stares hopefully at Rob*

Review: Free To Breathe by KL Shandwick

~~Synopsis~~

The price of fame – One life – FOREVER.
The price of love – Heartbreak.
The price of one regrettable mistake + fame = Hopelessness

Be careful what you wish for.

Noah Haxby learned that lesson a little too late.

Young and impressionable, he followed the orders from the kingmakers of rock, gathered a massive following, and gained notoriety for his hellraising behavior.

Years later he was buried in hurt and regret; living a shell of a life that was almost in ruins – that is until tragedy struck and his life took an upward turn, bringing second chances in more ways than one.

However, Noah is still unable to shake his past, and the rock star’s life wasn’t truly his own until in a moment of clarity he risked it all.

~~Buy Links~~

Books2ReadAmazonGoodreads Link

~~My Review~~

Noah Haxby is the frontman of Fr8Load, so he’s a rock star. His life is all over the media, for all to see and judge. Noah started his career at a young age & he was being told what to do and how to act by his management team. That has left Noah with a reputation that precedes him, and a life that isn’t what he wants. Noah doesn’t feel like he’s living, he feels like he’s surviving. That is until after the performance in Australia.

Maggie is a school teacher, she’s seen the media and knows of Noah, not just because of the media, her sister Shona has been kinda obsessed by Noah for years. Shona also works as part of Fr8Load’s image team. Maggie is the one looking after Shona’s daughter Molly whilst Shona is off doing her job. Maggie’s life is turned upside down after tragedy strikes and she has to travel to Australia.

Maggie and Noah are drawn together through a tragic circumstance that no one could have foreseen or really controlled. Maggie has understandably been hostile to Noah and doesn’t want to even be in the same place as him. Noah cannot understand why she’s like this towards him and wants to find out why.

This is when we start to see the real Noah Haxby. We discover the man behind the media portrayed bad boy.

Ok, that’s enough about the storyline, I wouldn’t want to give too much away!!

The characters are fantastic, they are realistic, loveable and sometimes hateable too 😉 

Maggie is level-headed and thinks things through before making decisions. It’s the way she’s always had to be and has to be now too. That said Maggie has chosen to believe the things she’s read and seen about Noah. After speaking to him she realises that she has no idea who he truly is and that she shouldn’t have believed everything in the media. Maggie has a lot to deal with right now, but she’s a strong woman.

Noah has been through a lot, he’s always in the limelight; whether he wants to be or not. He’s done some stupid things in his past that he’s not proud of and he’s paying for them now. Noah wants nothing more than to be able to live life without everyone believing the that he’s a bad person because of those mistakes. He’s a good, kind and loving man.

There is so much emotion in this book, all of it is real, the only way to describe it is it’s like being on an emotional rollercoaster ride that you can’t get off, and more importantly, don’t want to get off.

KL’s writing is as good as ever. I did find it to be fairly similar to other books by KL but that doesn’t take anything away from this particular book.

As a reader you can feel the emotions KL has put into her work and you can feel the emotions the characters feel as well as your own feelings and emotions that the events and characters invoke as your reading.

Free To Breathe is written from both Maggie and Noah’s POV, this makes it easier to understand them both and their feelings surrounding the events they face. 

I really have enjoyed reading Free To Breathe and I think that anyone who loves romance books will find themselves hooked on this book very quickly.

~~K.L. Shandwick Bio~~

Writing came relatively later in life for K.L. Shandwick after a challenge by a friend led to The Everything Trilogy and now she loves creating new storylines.

Her characters have flaws and she hopes this helps the connection between them and her readers. K.L. enjoys the journeys they take her on during the creation process and each character has his or her own voice. She also doesn’t use prepared outlines for her stories preferring the characters to take their own direction as the story progresses. These days K.L. lives in the Yorkshire countryside and writes full-time.

Synopsis:

Ryder Laurent has lived an unapologetic life, not caring how others viewed him or how questionable his actions were. Covered in an abundance of ink, and sporting a ‘devil may care’ attitude, he’s every bit the bad boy he appears to be.

When Taylor Hamilton resurfaces, someone he’d thought was dead years before, his life flips. He falls back in love with the woman he’d met eight years earlier.

A year into their almost perfect relationship, Ryder wakes one morning to cold sheets, and Taylor running all over again, leaving him no answers.

Except this time, he knows where she is, and vows to bring her back home. With mistakes from his past hell bent on making sure Ryder is in for the fight of his life, he finally learns the true meaning of love and family.

Can he track down his demons and put them to bed before they destroy any chance he has at being the man he craves to be?

Or will Taylor disappear from his life a third and final time?

*Full of surprises and revelations, heartache and joy, Ryder is the conclusion you’ve all been waiting for.

Life can change in a split second, a minute moment, an infinite hour.
For Laura Hamilton, her split second lasted 2,880 minutes. 48 hours to be exact. She barely escaped with her life. With a body full of scars and a heart full of hurt, the twenty-nine-year old clothes designer spent the following eight years clouded with grief, believing herself to be too broken to ever see the beauty in her surroundings again.
After a last-ditch attempt to scrape some semblance of her pieces together goes disastrously wrong, Laura’s pushed pin guides her to the sleepy village of Beaufort. No longer content to hide behind her sister, or languish in the depths of her sorrow, she finds a measure of peace among paranoia and fear, carving out an existence she is almost comfortable with.
Laura inadvertently catches the eye of the enigmatic hotelier and newcomer, Lucca Rinaldi. For the first time, her heart begins the slow trip towards letting another man into her life. Passion and pain go hand in hand when the couple finally meet.
Little does she know that Lucca’s history is not so far in the past as he thinks. His troubled affairs follow hot on his heels, bringing scorn and hate back into her fold. When their pasts collide with explosive consequences, Laura’s bitter memories threaten to pull her under when a walking nightmare crashes back into her life, bringing terror along for the ride.
The seconds are counting down – but who gets to call time?

*Please note – suitable for 18+ only due to adult/graphic themes and possible trigger content.

Meet K A

K A Sands is an exciting new author who has a passion for reading and more often than not, can be found with her nose stuck in a book. She loves angsty, dark reads but is not averse to the fun, light hearted side either. Typically, a romance reader, of most genres/sub genres, she loves reading a debut herself. Her passion for the written words goes back to her childhood and she has always dreamed of writing and telling the world her stories.

Not quite a stay at home mum, K A Sands has a busy life which she shares with her husband of twenty-two years and her little monkey boy. Her adult children have flown the coop already, but still manage to come home for ‘mama’s lasagne.’

Avid eater of mayonnaise and chips, anti-get-fitter, lover of cheesy music and a fierce advocate of things close to her heart. She enjoys doing photoshop manipulations and would love to be a whiz using it… maybe one day. She has a bucket list as long as her arm, which includes skydiving and visiting Cambodia. And wants to travel the world.

Great believer in second chances, insta-love (because her love is a product of that), fairy tales and monsters… K A Sands just wants to write all the words for you.
