SYNOPSIS

Jagger rules everything. The cities from the elite districts, to the slums, and everything in between are his domain in one of three sovereigns on the planet Jaru. The only law is Jagger Law which can change at any moment. One wrong look or word can get a body part chopped off or have you killed.

Since the beginning of the war, which was almost over three decades ago, the air has had been stale and musty, still smelling of burnt metal. All resources needed to survive are severely limited, causing many Jaruians to pillage one another just to get a single meal for the day.

There are some who wish to end Jagger’s power and they’ve started to infiltrate his organization. Money, amongst other things, are just a farce that Jagger uses to dangle in front of his subjects to keep the population in line and distracted. Those who want to see the end of Jagger’s reign want to take control over the depleting natural resources in order to save the planet and the Jaruian species.

Natalie gets caught up in Jagger’s twisted game of power and control when she’s taken from her sovereign. Against her will, like all women who are caught, Natalie is thrown into the Jaruian sex trade. With her new, unwanted job responsibilities, Natalie takes a stand, willing to die fighting for her life rather than be used. When an opportunity presents itself, is Natalie willing to do whatever it takes to free herself or remain only a pawn?

REVIEW

I was sent an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I completely devoured this book. I wasn’t sure anything could top the feeling I felt after Vein of Love… until I finished Body of the Crime.

Paranormal romance is probably my absolute favourite genre. Add some wicked secondary characters, non-stop sexual tension, and of course, Tensley Knight, and it’s pretty much as close to perfection as it can get.

Ah, Tensley. He’s the character I love to hate and hate to love. He really struggles in this book (not that he didn’t in the previous, but this was much more severe), which made him incredibly irritable and sometimes even downright mean. This is the Tensley I don’t like, but hey, we all have our issues. It just so happens he has a beast inside of him who wants him to claim the woman he’s starting to love even though he is terrified to. Damn.

As much as he wants her, he wants a normal life for her even more. It wasn’t her fault or even his that they were initially forced together, so he is constantly in this mindset that he isn’t enough for her, which of course isn’t true and something she doesn’t believe for a second.

Molly really stepped up in this book. She fought back and spoke her mind, and I really admired that about her…once she did it. Especially when it came to Tensley, she was very accepting about the way he was treating her so poorly (in my eyes) in the beginning. It wasn’t until she had finally had enough of his bullshit and called him out that I found the story started moving forward.

A lot happened in this book. An overwhelming amount for a reader who sat down and took it all in…in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down if I wanted to, I had to know what happened. Especially as we approached the end of the book and every bad thing possible that could happen did.

With everything that exploded at the end of this book, I am eager and impatient to get my hands on the next book to see what happens. I can only imagine how Tensley will react to certain…things. My heart hurt at the end of Body of the Crime. I need the next book ASAP, even though I have a feeling my heart will hurt a hell of a lot more before it mends.

I gave Body of the Crime 5/5 stars. You can add it on Goodreads here.

EXCERPT

Tensley’s dark eyes turned to her. Eyes a dark, vivid night and he marched towards her, grasping her face into his large, powerful hands.

“Are you hurt?” Tensley asked when they were by themselves, his thumb skimming along her jaw down to her neckline.

“I’m fine, Tensley,” she whispered, squinting in the muted light. She caught his wrist and stroked it while he held her face still. She watched his vivid eyes, terrified, but fascinated by their darkness. “Are you okay? Your eyes are pitch-black. What’s wrong?” she asked, anxious.

He caught her eyes, that lethal stare making her stomach flip. “When we feel threatened, angry or…aroused…our eyes tend to turn black.

Her cheeks grew hot and she knew he could feel the warmth on his palms. Those dark, vivid eyes continued to watch her closely.

“All I can smell is my scent on you, and seeing how he just had his hands on you, how you weren’t protected—” Tensley hissed, a snarl escaping him. “I want you so bad I can’t think straight. I want to bite your ivory neck—deep, deep enough to mark. Deep enough to protect you and make you unconditionally mine. Do you want me to do that, Molly?” he asked, his voice breathless with need. His eyes turned feral, he was a predator. A beast. And he could no longer resist his prey. “Would you bare my mark, Molly? Are you ready to be mine?” he finished, his voice low and raw.

“Yes,” she answered, her breathing uneven. She was ready for the beast. She was ready for it all.

His mouth found hers and it was vicious, impatient. Molly dug her fingers into his shoulder blades, before sliding them up to tug on his thick mane of hair. That only stirred the beast within him, and he grasped her hips, pulling her flush against his muscular, powerful frame.

His hands palmed her rear and with a sudden growl, he lifted her up. She gasped, breathless in his strong hold, but he caught her mouth again and swallowed her breaths, leading them to a desk.

He paused, his chest warring against hers and she stared down at him, stroking his heated cheeks, those demon eyes penetrating hers.

“Not here, not like this,” he breathed out. “We’re leaving.” He placed her down, her legs heavy and weak, and he grasped her hand, taking them out of the room.

Molly stayed close, feeling the heat roll off Tensley’s skin from the beast inside him. When she kissed his forearm before they left the empty hallway, he threw her a lethal, dangerous look, one that warmed her belly with desire and the knowledge of what was about to happen.

He’s going to mark me.

Tensley weaved through the crowd, shouldering some to make sure Molly moved through untouched. One man looked at her and Tensley snarled at him; his beast had taken over, the demon side controlling him to defend her, to warn others off.

As they approached the front doors, Molly’s heart raced. So close to freedom, to being outside of his culture and being ininto his arms.

“Tensley,” a voice called when they were nearly out.

Tensley stalled, and Molly followed his gaze to see his father approaching. Mr. Knight turned his focus on Molly and raised his chin, sniffing once.

He followed that with a curt nod of approval, and Tensley kept his route out of the party, rushing them down the front steps.

His arm snaked around Molly’s waist as he waved down a car.

“You want the beast?” he whispered into her ear.

“Yes.”

“Good. Because he needs you.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN

I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada.
I never expected to be an author. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.

Mad love,

Anne Jolin

 

ARC Review: The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan

room mate_amazon.jpgSYNOPSIS

The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot- something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

REVIEW

I was provided an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Room Mate was my first book by Kendall Ryan and I really enjoyed it. I think it was a great mix of funny, sexy, and emotional which made for an entertaining and quick read.

The characters were easy to like and to understand, and while I don’t think I really connected to Paige as much as I could have because of her age compared to mine, I did enjoy her story and most definitely shared her attraction to Cannon. A med student? A future doctor? Sign me the hell up. He was confident yet kind and incredibly respectful and I was so there for it. We need more male characters like this.

When I read the synopsis I was worried the age difference between Paige and Cannon would bother me, but I found it didn’t even matter while I was reading. He is mature and professional when it is necessary, which says a lot about his character. Definite book boyfriend material.

I did find the conflict of the story to be fairly juvenile for a new adult romance, and when it came to the make it or break it point in the story and Paige chose to let him go, I wanted to rage. For someone her age, I would have expected her to act differently.

While I might not have enjoyed every stop along the way to the happy ending, I did like how the story ended. I think it was realistic enough while still keeping with the romance, which is sometimes hard to find.

I gave The Room Mate 3/5 stars. You can add it on Goodreads here.

SYNOPSIS

Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.”

Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.

As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.

Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.

EXCERPT

Before Molly sat down, she rolled off her trench coat, and he groaned when he saw her dress. The black satin hugged her curves, flaring mid-thigh, and the sweetheart neckline plunged dangerously low, exposing her supple breasts; she was a walking threat to his every fucking cell.

He painfully cleared his throat, begging himself for composure, and angrily sat down, fingers restlessly tapping against his thigh. He readjusted himself beneath his pants.

Keep your distance. You’re dangerous to me.

All he had to do was remember his brother’s vicious face and heavy fist from years ago, all caused by that human seductress, and he collected any softness, any kindness in him and replaced it with an icy detachment.
