RUIN by Samantha Towle

 

ruin.jpg

This is the first time I read a Samantha Towle book. I know I should read The Storm Series first, but I’m just not in the mood to open that one yet. Maybe one of these days…..

So  I started with this one-shot book, RUIN, and I fuckin enjoy it! It just has the right amount of drama, sex and machoness to keep myself on reading til the last page. Plus, Samantha Towle‘s writing style is a 5-star! It’s been a while since I read a fast-pace story. The way she tells the story is direct, concise and still with so much feelings. Also I love how she use both main character’s POV for this.

RUIN actually sells me because of the second chance love story plot with secret baby on the side. I adore little cherubs! It always make the story light and cute. Especially when you imagine how an alpha man is so gentle with a little kid. Gigi girl is so adorable with her imperfect words! Plus Zeus is a total caveman hot and loving and just…. who doesn’t want someone like him tho? And don’t start with Cam! That girl is strong and sassy and she deserves all the love in the world. Love their story really. ❤

So if you want a quick read, cmon and grab a copy of RUIN by Samantha Towle. You may download the EPUB copy below.

The Tairen Soul Series by CL Wilson

This is a loooongggg series. I repeat 5-book series about the Fey King – Tairen Soul and his truemate Ellysetta. It was all about magic, power, politics, war, death and love. If you want to indulge yourself to the world of Feys, Mages and Elves, better start reading “Lord of The Fading Lands”.

The story starts about Rain – The Fey King and Tairen Soul. After thousand years of seclusion when he incinerate thousand of people after raging fit, he leaves Fading Lands to find solution about their dying race. Instead of answers, he found his truemate who is Celerian, a commoner and a human with no powers – as they initially thought. As the story progress, Elysetta develops her power that slowly reveal her true identity as well.

Tairen Soul series is simply about Light vs Dark. How goodness of the Fey fights the evilness of the Mages. And in this long history of war, Elysetta is in the center of everything.

Sooooo I love magic, as in fantasy series are my favorites. CL Wilson did an impeccable job in creating a world that is so rich with history and magic that includes remarkable characters. Since the author writes different characters’ POV, it’s either you love or hate them kind of feeling when I read the stories.

The series was really good storyline wise, but I really felt its too long? For me, there are parts that can be excluded or minimize; such as the Celerian court, Mage POV, and Baristani family. The writing is a bit slow for my taste that sometimes its kinda annoying that I just have to skim it away. The good part tho is you’re kinda more invested to the story and its characters. Because really, I cried when Elysetta’s Mama and the truemates died. So much for the rollercoaster emotion. >.<

Anyways, if you are ready for a long escape from reality, better start reading Tairen Soul Series by downloading EPUB copy below. You may also follow the book sequence listed as your guide.

  1. Lord of The Fading Lands
  2. Lady of Light and Shadows
  3. King of Sword and Sky
  4. Queen of Song and Souls
  5. Crown of Crystal Flame

Tornians Series by M.K. Eidem

Torians

This alien abduction kind of romance are the stories I usually read after I had long intense emotional-wrecking kind of book. Because most of the time alien stories are short, light, funny and have a happy ending. Sooo it was kinda surprising that Tornian series is a little bit longer than I anticipated. As well as story wise, it had rich story plot same as the shifter books I love to read. To say I like Tornians series is an understatement! M.K. Eidem did an amazing job creating story that runs my imagination wild. Because of that, she’s one of my faves now. 🙂

Basically these aliens abducting “unprotected” Earth women was due to their compatibility to provide offspring to Tornian males. Because of the epidemic brought by Goddess’ madness, a female born Tornian became so rare that the ratio of their population is 100 male to 1 female. In short, their species are dying and they need to find compatible women to breed. Since female are so rare, they are very precious wherein laws and policies revolved around them. Its all about their safety, privileged and other outrageous practices that benefit them. So it is really funny when Earth women came to their planet and act freely that made warriors, lords, king and emperor look like a boy into their teenage years. xD

Tornian series have everything. Rich history, evil-conniving bitch, loyal and brave warriors, loving women and loca Goddess. 🙂 It has lots of action moments, sexcapade, and magic. The ‘love-at-first-sight’ kind of romance is very very evident in the story.

If you want something to smile about, start reading Tornian Series by MK Eidem. You may check the book sequence below and download the EPUB copy as well.

TORNIAN SERIES

1. GRIM – Lisa and Grim
1.5 A GRIM HOLIDAY – Lisa and Grim and Family

Crime Lord Series by Mia Knight

las vegas3

INTENSE!!!!!!! THIS. SERIES. IS. FUCKING. INTENSE.

I think I have a new fave author. ❤

I have read a lot of anti-heroes series and this had the feels of A. Zeverelli’s Bleeding Heart’s Series. Especially in the 2nd book where we read the male character’s POV. But since the authors way of of writing are not the same , you can definitely differentiate the two series. What I love more about Mia Knight is that she focused more on emotions and traits of each characters. It’s not like over the top too much thinking from heroine when it feels like redundant everytime she talks about her feelings. I really really like the way the author portray the characters and how she attacks the storyline. She knows when to take it up a notch and when will feel like everything is mild.

This is the story of Layla Dalton who fell in love with a Las Vegas Crime Lord -Gavin Pyre and was crushed and burned when she caught him cheating on her. On top of that, she saw him killing someone in their basement with his own hands that led to her decision to fled and leave him. But after three long years, Gavin found her and blackmailed her to return in exchange for her good-for-nothing father’s life. Thus, the start of Layla-Gavin emotional roller coaster ride just to get through their relationship. I swear I am a mess while reading just Book 1! And don’t start me with that ending cliffhanger! Thank God Book 2 is already available when I read this. And Recaptured by the Crime Lord was all about new life together as husband and wife. Since we have Gavin’s POV, we also learned how darkness and danger are still around the corner since they haven’t found the killers of Manny and Vinny. Even though it is a little lighter than the first book, it still as emotional and desperate as any book. I just love Gavin Pyre in 2nd book. He is more human in a sense that he is don’t shy to admit his weakness when it comes to Layla. So much death in this series and I cry along with the characters since I super duper adore the supporting casts. Manny, Vinny, and Carmen are totally the bomb. And in some way, I understand why Gavin reacts the way he did when they died. Totally love this series and I cant damn wait for Book 3!!!! Give me Book 3!!!!!

KC Lynn: Men of Honor & Acts of Honor Series

honor-is-simply-the-morality-of-superior-men-quote-1If you love military men who are oozing with confidence, machoness and alpha tendencies, this series is for you. Men of Honor started of with three Navy seals who are honorably discharged after surviving torture and captivity in Iraq. Then Acts of Honor series are men whose honors were questioned due to some circumstances. All of these guys will prove how they are considered heroes in the eyes of their respective  loved ones.

Sooo if you are familiar with KA, ARR and the likes, you ‘ll probably know how the story goes for these sexy bad-ass men. Though with KC Lynn, the men are the stupid ones I swear. Maybe because they are emotionally damage in some way, they are kinda hard-to-get type of guy. It would take really some dumb decisions and life-threatening moments to get their grip together and grab that woman’s love in front of them. Seriously, there are moments I just have to sigh due to these men’s stupidity. HAHA. 😀

Though its kinda  a ‘rescue-the-damsel-in-distress’ story, I still love it. It got me with the humor, action, and that one-woman man kind of principle. The heroines are good enough. Yes, they are not perfect coz they are such crybabies! Tho they got spunk sometimes and of course put their men in line. I think my fave girl character is the BFF of all BFF, Kayla. She’s funny as hell but watch out she’ll kill for her friends 🙂

Take note, you have to read Men of Honor Series coz they are the father of all alphas in these family built in brotherhood. I really love how protective and honorable they are. Oh totally heroes in a bad-ass way. 🙂 The Acts of Honor Series are like the continuation of the 1st series. These men are like the second honorable men, but I swear they are alpha in their own way! Smexiness and all that. Just read the damn books to understand what Im saying. xD

Over all, I totally recommend these books for readers who love happy endings. The epilogues are the best as well so you’ll feel really satisfied after. 🙂 To start over, kindly check the book sequence below.

  • Men Of Honor Series
    • Fighting Temptation – Jaxson & Julia
    • Sweet Temptation – Sawyer & Grace
    • Resisting Temptation – Cade & Faith
    • Final Temptation -Cooper & Kayla

Colorado Mountain Series by Kristen Ashley

giphy (1).gif

I love me some KA books! I think she is the first one to introduce me these ALPHA-BADASS men that would totally swoon you. I adore her style of writing. It’s like you are really so into the story and each character’s POV were written really well. I had some of my faves, especially the first books she published. The hand down series are Rock Chicks, Fantastical, The Three and Mystery Man.

This series started with Nina who leave England for a needed break with her boyfriend that ends up her being in bed with Max. For a week they stay in same house, ofcourse a lot, i mean super duper lot had happened. First, there comes sex. Second, the raped young lady with jerk boyfriend that ends up brusing Nina in a fight that end up by Max kicking his butt. Third, a dead wife and dead half-brother. Fourth, a seriously asshole soon to be ex-boyfriend. Fifth, a dead old-friend who cheated on his paralyzed wife with the town whore. Sixth, a cluster-fuck murder case. Lastly, a happy ever epilogue 🙂

Think about that plot and tell me its not as entertaining at it should be! Sooooo love love KA so much ❤ For the next books, almost same kind of storyline with guns, serial killers, racist police officers, crazy ex-wife, kiddo, and lots of sex. Totally love the people of Gnaw Bone and Chantelle. Never a dull moment in Colorado xD

So for Colorado Series, don’t get me wrong I sooo love it. Especially the first parts, maybe until Book 4. After that, I think it just got me a little off guard. Maybe it is not the usual kidnapping-serial killer kind of theme with damsel-in-distress into the picture. 1-4 is absolutely hands down KA, but the last books…. hmmm she kinda change the way she writes. Maybe she tried to be unpredictable, coz really if you are a fan its the same MO. But still, I love the action and mystery in her stories. It add up to the excitement of every love story. And I think it showcase a lot how hot and alpha macho these heroes are. ❤

Anyways, overall its still a thumbs up for me. This is a perfect read while devouring chocolates or drinking beer. Gotta enjoy the mysteries, heartbreaks, kilig moments and sexcapades. The stories are a little mature, maybe because of the age bracket is like 30-40s. Sometimes it is hard to relate when you’re around 20s or young adult, but since we have great imagination no worries 😀

For book sequence, kindly check below.

  1. The Gamble – Nina and Max
  2. Sweet Dreams – Lauren and Tate
  3. Lady Luck – Lexie and Ty
  4. Breathe – Faye and Chase
  5. Jagged – Zara and Ham
  6. Kaleidoscope – Emme and Deck

McTierney Series by Michele Sinclair

Oh highlanders! How I love stubborn, alpha men with their pretty, feisty and incredible women. Out of all historical books, these Scottish men are my favorites. Never failed to provide mystery, action and humor. Ofcourse drama is there as well, but the lightness and character’s innocence give readers such happy feeling 😀

First, To Wed a Highlander was totally a hoot! How many times did I laugh and cry while reading the book? Conor and  Laurel battle of wits was super entertaining. The strong, stubborn and prideful characteristic of a highlander warrior was the embodiment of Conor while Laurel is the epitome of an angel with a feisty streak and strong will character. I super love the storyline, how the supporting casts was introduced and how every character complement the McTierneys and all. Its like a very big family with esp with the addition of Lauerl’s original roots.

For the succeeding books, it depicts the story of each McTierney brothers. From Conor, to Cole, Colin, and the twins. Every books has different stories telling how each brothers found their soulmate. And all their wives are stubborn, feisty and independent women. I guess that is what makes the story fun. Though they fall in love easily, it doesn’t mean these girls give in easily. If I think about it, its more these warriors are the one being chased. Yeah these men can think of too many complications. xD
