The Bonus

Wow this book was really good. I’d already read Dirty Dealings so being able to go back and see the way Kyle and Chloe’s relationship began was a lot of fun. Poor Chloe she had such a hard life but she’s a tough cookie and she was lucky to meet Kyle. Even though Kyle is not going to win person of the year award he truly loves Chloe and will do anything to keep her safe. The connection between them is there from the start and I liked that. Chloe manages to become a part of Kyle’s world by staying loyal to him and Arturo. I’m happy they got their happy ending.

Wow this book was crazy! Loved it! Solitaire is badass and Arturo well he’s was really creepy in The Bonus but now we get to see him in a whole new light. I was not expecting what happened to Solitaire and the bad guy, I figured out who it was two or three chapters before the reveal but there was still a twist I didn’t see coming. The ending was intense. A really great book.

 

Dirty Dealings

This was a really interesting story. Quique is part of the Mexican mafia sent to London to take care of a project while there he runs into Natalia a normal everyday British chick except she’s not normal. She’s done some things to protect her family and she would do it again. So Quique and Natalia have this love/hate relationship until about half way through the book and that’s where most of the action happens. I found the second half of the book more interesting because it was one thing after another after another. The first half of the book is more the set up and description of both characters and their lives. I’m not used to reading mafia type stories so this was a really cool read.

ExcerptAs revenge tales go, mine was rapidly turning sour. A day earlier I’d been on track, discovering the bastard Ranulf’s name, getting a general location and finding a thrall who’d get me right into his lair. Now I was stuck with a contract, working cheap, for Apollo’s sake, and committed to a second job so demeaning that it would get me into endless arguments with even my own Guild.Also, being stuck in Caern was going to be dangerous. I would have plenty of people after me, looking for revenge, and working for the constable meant they would all know where to find me.To top it all, my thrall was prone to erupting into a foul-mouthed rant at the slightest provocation, determined to run away, and I couldn’t turn my back on her, seeing she was more than capable of taking me out.
BlurbWare Fletcher returns to find his home destroyed. Determined to avenge his family, he buys Lind, a thrall whose skills will secure his revenge. However, Ware quickly discovers that Lind is extremely difficult. Worse, she’s determined to run away - and if it’s over his dead body, that’s fine with her!
Fletcher is set in Prydain, an imaginary place that combines Anglo-Saxon England with Medieval England, the Teutonic Kingdom and the Viking Age. This story contains slavery, dubious consent and graphic violence, however, it is a love story rather than a dark romance. It is a standalone novel; no cliff-hangers.

This book was great! I loved being in the world of Prydain again! Ware and Lind are a very unlikely couple but they have a great connection and as the story progresses they both get to learn what it’s like to live in each others world. Ware is on a quest and he’s determined to do anything to achieve his goal but it’s not easy. There are so many people who are against him he has to fight hard. Lind is just living her life the way she wants to and fighting back the only way she knows how regardless of the consequences. Both of them together are a force to be reckoned with. Can’t wait to see what else comes from the Prydain world.

I could’ve fucking strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. “Touch me and I’ll have you!” she snarled.“Bruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think you’re playing at! You can’t push me around!”“Sure I can.” Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. “I need help, and you’re going to give it.” “What the hell are you talking about?”“I’ve got a situation. I need someone who isn’t afraid of murder and mayhem.”I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. “Help you? Over my dead fucking body!”She shrugged. “We can do it that way, too.” She took out her phone. “I’ll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.” The eyes were hard. “I’d rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.”I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if you’re careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop.
Quique is having a bad time. Back in Mexico his marriage has fallen apart and his wife has made him a laughing stock by cheating on him. Now he’s in London and finding himself out of his depth with a complex commercial deal. To make things worse, Natalia Truelove, a chef and pub manager, is blackmailing him. Quique is ready to commit murder and he’s pretty sure who his first victim will be.
Warning: Dirty Dealings contains strong adult language and themes as well as graphic violence and fully depicted love scenes.

This was a really interesting story. Quique is part of the Mexican mafia sent to London to take care of a project while there he runs into Natalia a normal everyday British chick except she’s not normal.

I opened the boot, and at the sight of the girl, Crush began grinning. “Hey, is that for me, too?”“You can go fuck yourself!” The little tart blew up instantly. “You evil bastard, let me go!”“Whoo! I like her!”Crush is a man who enjoys performing to the stereotypical outlaw biker image. This time I could see he meant it, and so did the girl. She opened her mouth, spotted Crush’s cut and went very quiet.“You can’t have her. She’s my collateral.” I pulled her towards me, snapped through her ankle ties with the box cutter and threw her over my shoulder. She muttered furiously, but she’d stopped fighting. I could feel her raise her head and look over the crowd of gathering Disciples. She shivered and went limp. I guess she didn’t like the look of the party.Crush was still curious. “Collateral for what?”“Alistair’s man took my Busa.”“You’re shitting me!”
Fracas Macintyre has been in and out of trouble all her life but this time it’s worse than ever. In debt to a loan shark, she’s caught up in a war between the Alistairs, nicknamed The Irish Mob, and Belial’s Disciples, England’s nastiest MC. Kidnapped and at the mercy of Caden Winslow, Fracas is convinced that life is going to get very nasty indeed.
Caden Winslow is an ex soldier used to taking care of business. When an Alistair henchman steals his beloved Busa, he simply takes one of theirs hostage and expects a simple trade will solve the problem. However, Caden is about to be pulled into a war.
Warning: This book is a dark romance. It contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It is for adults only.

Once you get used to the book going from one characterspoint of view to another this book really goes very fast, there is some Russian Mob action and Motor Cycle club action. The rwo main characters are quite a duo, they don’t trust each other or believe in each other but once they start this really picks up speed. I was gifted this book for a fair and honest review.
