Author: Maria Luis

Blurb

I am both a sinner and a saint, but I bleed vengeance.

For years, I’ve lived in the grey… until her.

Avery Washington didn’t belong in the shadows, but I dragged her into the darkness anyway.

One kiss, and I would stop at nothing to possess her.

One caress, and my need to destroy wavered.

Our attraction was poison and pleasure.

They say the devil recognizes his own, but I never saw Avery coming.

She's determined to light the matchsticks, and I can't resist going down in flames...

 Review by Barbara


OMG where do I start with this review. I love Ms. Luis’s pasts works and to say she has hit a homerun with this duet would not be doing it justice. Perhaps saying she has stretched her writing to a new height might be a description. My only problem is I have no idea where to begin without giving away to much. So let me start by simply saying buy the Blood Duet, you will not be sorry.

We left off in book 1 (Sworn) with a complete OMG Cliffe moment (which I won’t spoil here). Things will come to light that will have Jack and Avery fighting for their lives along with their own personal demons. The twists and turns in this thrilling duet will have you guessing and on the edge of your seat at every turn. Who can they trust, can they even trust each other, is anyone who we actually think they are? You will find yourself drawn into life in the shadows and underworld of New Orleans as you experience the shady dealings of the towns politicians and everyone Avery and/or Jack have ever known. Your heart will break and soar and break again as you follow these two broken souls who have fought to survive since they were teens. Two people who would give up everything just to belong and know what it’s like to be loved. 

I can’t recommend reading and following Jack and Avery’s life stories enough. The highs, the lows, the thrills, the chilling, the suspense and even the romantic and humorous moments will keep you turning page after page and contemplating its ending. KUDOS Ms. Luis for an amazing duet. It’s definitely been one of my favorites for 2018. 2 Thumbs Up.

What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime--Maria's favorite topics.

The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.
#thanksbutnothanks
Once bitten.
Twice shy.
Yeah, I wish.
I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.
It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.
As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.
I’m not that na├»ve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.
Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…
He’s my ex-husband.

Review by Barbara


Just when I thought these three ladies couldn’t get into any more trouble. WRONG… The authors once again have written a great storyline that will have you laughing, smiling and wanting to shake our heroine a time or two as you read book two of the Charity Case Series. While this is Chelsea and Dean’s story, all the main characters of the series as well as a few from the last series are all present and the author let us catch up on their lives as well - I absolutely LOVE this touch.

Chelsea and Dean have a past, a short lived married past that is. They married in Vegas and well youth and Vegas don’t always mix and divorce soon followed. Fast forward 5 years. Dean is no longer the hopeful pro jock but is a successful tax attorney. A tax attorney that just happens to be doing pro-bono work for RISE, Chelsea’s place of employment. Coincidence or planned on his part? Needless to say when they bump into each other Sparks fly…. both the good kind and the bad, but one thing is for sure the pull between them is still there. A feeling Dean wants to explore but Chelsea refuses. To Chelsea, old sparks are not enough for a new beginning or 2nd chance, one broken heart is enough for her, not to mention, old tigers don’t lose their stripes, do they?

The authors will take you on a journey of love, heartbreak and mending while you laughing, cry and smile through the pages. 2 Thumbs up for a great read. One that I highly recommend. If you haven’t read book 1, Manic Monday, I highly recommend reading it first. While it’s not a Have to, it will sure make this great read flow a lot easier. Kudo’s to the authors for another amazing job well done and I am soooooo looking forward to Hannah’s story (book 3 in this delightful series).



Review by Kathy


Afternoon Delight is a proper title for this book as it was a total Delight to read. Not only is reading Chelsea and Dean's story a wonderful read, but it was so much fun catching up with the characters from two other series who are intertwined in some way or another, into this story. This story line, as is with all of Piper Rayne's stories, is brilliantly written, giving you so much more than just words to carry you through the story, it brings you through the life of the characters, no matter how stormy, how heartbreaking, how stressful, how angst filled, or how funny it is. The words bring the characters to life, bringing you into their inner circle, making you a part of their lives. Chelsea and Dean's story is no different. You find yourself siding with both of these characters as they try and find their way back to one another, even if at first, Chelsea wanted nothing to do with the beautiful man she was once married to. But sometimes, you can't keep the past buried completely and feelings that were once deeply buried, or have turned into anger, will not stay where you put them and you find them resurfacing and not in a way you would have wanted. First loves die hard, and true love will always find a way. 

These characters are beautifully written and well defined, yet a bit complex. Dean is handsome and has grown into a new man, a wonderful man, who has changed so very much from the young man, a kid really, when he was married to Chelsea. He has changed very much and has to try and prove to Chelsea that he is a much better man today than he was when they were together the first time. Chelsea is beautiful, strong, smart and has never lost the love for her former husband. She's just kept it dormant, until Dean begins pushing his way back into her life and begins to show her just how much he has changed. But there are still some things in their past that needs to be brought out and dealt with before their Happily Ever After can actually happen. Can they move past these things or will on thing in particular be what ends them forever? All we can do is hold their hands and walk the path with them through their story. 

This is a wonderful story! One that will reunite you with the characters you loved from previous series and will not only give you these two character's story, but will update you on Victoria and Reed's life and bring a bit more of Hannah's story that is to come next. I adored this story and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I hope that you will read the Bedroom Games and the Modern Love series before this one, if only to know who the other characters are that will join in on this story. It's not necessary, but it will make you enjoy this series that much more. Go ahead, click that button and get them!

Review by Kathy 


An exceptional read that will have you picking your jaw up from the ground! In one brief moment, everything comes to a full heart-pounding stop as Matthias' monster comes unleashed and it appears that no one can reach they young man that everyone loves, especially the man who is like a brother to him. An extremely well written story that will bring out more of Matthias' past, but not all of his secrets, as Gemma (Gigi), has become a little more entwined into his life. He still feels like something isn't right, but the attraction between the two is what he focuses on most, until something catches his eye and turns his world upside down and flips the switch that has helped him control the monster inside of him. 

These characters, the lead characters, are so very well written and so very complex, especially Matthias, who is so broken that the glue that has been holding him together, in a blink of an eye, disappears and he unleashes his anger, betrayal and pain not only on the one who caused it, but also on the people he don't deserve it. He is lost to his demon and who knows if he will ever come back. Gemma is caught between her feelings for him and her promise to save her friend, who will die if she isn't able to complete her mission. She has been trained, just as Noah, Ryan and Matthias have been trained, and she is working undercover at the very place that Matthias had tried to save them from so many year ago. The place that changed him forever, the place that had him believing that they had killed her. Not all ghosts stay away and not all secrets stay buried. Sometimes they come back with a vengeance!

I believe that this duet will be the best one out of the series of duet's regarding Blake Security and I can only hope that everyone will give these books a try because you will not be disappointed. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK (DUET).

M. Malone


NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she's using her expensive education.

Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent," her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

She's now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.




Nana Malone


USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.

Release Blitz with Review - Chevelle by Sapphire Knight



Title: Chevelle
An Oath Keepers MC Standalone
Author: Sapphire Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 29, 2018



Blurb

Mercenary
She was just a job.
I needed to get in and uncover the Iron Fists’ next move. They’d hit the Oath Keepers enough in the past, and being the newest member, it was up to me to get close. Had I known I’d be getting close to Chevelle, maybe I could’ve prepared myself. I went in seeking revenge and came out wanting to protect one thing—her. 

Chevelle 
Running The Pit was my life. 
I needed nothing and no one except my cars and a heart-thumping race. Gear head, Pit Master, alpha bitch, take your pick on what you’d rather call me. However, make note of one thing: I take shit from no one. Not even a broody, bossy, gorgeous biker aiming for my race spot and heart.

*Warning- this book is panty melting hottttttt!*

Review by Barbara


Truth: Every woman out there need a little Mercenary in their lives. Well that is if the Mercenary is like the guy that has infiltrated Chevelle’s life (Much to her displeasure). The author has written an excellent storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat, your toes curling and a smile on your face from Chevelle and Mercenary’s antics. Not to mention all the excitement from the Oath Keepers we’ve come to know and love and their ole ladies. 

Chevelle is one tough lady. Having grown up on the streets since she was a teen, she has fought and scraped to make a place in the world. She is also under the protection of the Oath Keepers MC (not that she really feel like she needs their protection or any ones for that matter). Chevelle runs the local Race Pit, where she works on her cars and races every Saturday night. When word gets to the Viking, the Prez on the Oath Keepers, that their rival MC is looking to cause her trouble, he sends in Mercenary to get the low down. Mercenary has recently transferred to the Oath Keepers MC in Texas. He’s the swing first ask questions later type and after a few run ins at his old club in Chicago, he was forced to make the move. When his new prez, Viking, sends him to The Pit, he quickly learns “Chevelle” is a sexy blonde bombshell with mad driving and mechanical skills and his inner beast wants her from the first glance. Sadly, Chevelle doesn’t need or want want what he has to offer. 

Chevelle and Mercenary both have a stubborn streak a mile long. They clash at every turn and the banter between them is humorous and sexy as all get out as they strut their dominance. But what happens when trouble finally comes to call? Can they put their personal clash aside? I LOVE this series and the guys of the Oath Keepers MC. They are rough around the edges and as tough as they come but the protect what’s theirs and their old ladies with a fierceness that will grab you by the heartstrings. If I could give this series more stars, I totally would. But for now I can just say 2 Thumbs up for a phenomenal 5 star series and 5 stars for an awesome addition to the series in Chevelle. I highly recommend this MUST READ; you won’t regret it.
