Gino and Rosa are survivors. When a threat from Rosa’s own family comes to light, Gino has a choice to make. One that’s life or death, love or loss.
Dark, dirty and heart wrenching. That pretty much explains this book. The pain this author put these characters through is just cruel and it really makes me cheer for them. In terms of the action, there’s a ton. The growing love between Gino and Rosa is beautiful then some seriously hot romance. I love this dark romance vibe that’s been so popular lately. A Sense of Guilt is a must read for those readers who like their heart pulled out of there chest and then sewed back up by an amazing story. Intense action. Stunning romance. I can’t wait to read more in this series!
Leona had a rough childhood that’s led to a rough adulthood. She now being taken care of by a crime family but when they need help, she does unthinkable things. Now missing, only one man will stop at nothing to find her, Tony. The man that nearly broke through her tough exterior but also in a rival crime family. He has to find her before he can even attempt to have a happy ever after.
This is a phenomenal story! It starts with Tony getting word that Leona is missing. I can really feel his panic and the urge to find her. It gave them a good connection before the reader actually got to meet Leona. Poor Leona, the stuff she’s been through in life has broken her down. This is an edge of your seat read and being that’s it short I devoured the story! Sexy, entertaining, heartbreaking, sweet, His Kind of Beautiful is a must read!
Dark, dirty, dangerous ... lawless.
This is a twelve story anthology about all the sexy lawless couples you could possibly dream of. The one thing they all have in common is a lot danger and a lot of sexiness. These would be great to read before some alone time with your other half or with them!

Eli Logan's Return by Lila Shaw
Trust by Kait Gamble
The Last DiLuca by Beth D. Carter
I can only say I had hard time picking just one story as my favorite. They each are perfect for romantic suspense readers such as myself. If I had to pick just one…damn I can’t! It’d be a three-way tie between Angel Mine by Maia Dylan, Kiss of Death by Sandra Bunino and Hitman’s Angel by Elyzabeth VaLey. They had the best stories that really packed a punch in such a short span. I wasn’t so crazy about the MC stories. Maybe because lately they all seem to have the same plot? One thing all the stories did deliver on was the sexy factor! Yummy!
If you’re looking to get a glimpse into some sexy stories but not commit to anything too long, Lawless should already be on your tbr list!
April had a hard childhood but it got better once she is adopted by a lovely family who just happen to introduce her to shifters. She meets Jason when he rescues her from a sleazy guy in a bar and then she meets Donovan, the sparks fly. But with mates, comes enemies.
This is a good shifter story. I like April, Jason and Donovan but their romance is so quick. They meet and suddenly she’s asking Jason out. Really? That quickly? No exchanging numbers or anything? He could be a serial killer shifter or something equally as terrifying. Yes, she knows about wolf shifters from her adopted family but accepting that she’s mate to two guys that swiftly is completely unbelievable. I didn’t feel that connection between then through most of the story. The plot took a cool turn with Fae’s and Trolls. The action is really entertaining and the ending beautiful!
Deciding Her Faete is a good read about sexy shifters.

Owned by the Alpha Manlove Edition is, as you probably guessed, the m/m version of the anthology from Evernight Publishing. If you read m/f then you have to check out that version! As for the man on man, alpha shifter stories ... I really loved some of them.

Last Alpha Standing by James Cox
Mooncrest by Jules Dixon
His Guardian Panther by Elena Kincaid
The Scarf by L.J. Longo
A Matter of Trust by Pelaam
Conflict of Interest by L.D. Blakeley
Let’s start with the good, and when I say good, I mean amazing! Conflict of Interest by LD Blakeley and Last Alpha Standing by James Cox are, hands down, my favorites. They are edgy and wild. I totally fell in love with the characters! Eamonn in Conflict of Interest is freaking adorable and funny. Gah, love him so much! Their romance is entertaining and sexy. Marcus from Last Alpha standing is so damn hot. I want him. I want him now! He is sweet when he talks about his brother but also sarcastic and a serious badass. When he meets the beta prince, Christopher I definitely felt myself swoon. These stories really grabbed me. I know I’m going to read them again and again ... and again.
The others stories range from really good to okay. I think they’re a combination of interesting and promising. Although I got this book for an honest review, I still would have purchased it. For those two phenomenal stories alone, hell yeah, I would have bought it. I found some new authors to add to my tbr pile.
Owned by the Alpha: manlove Edition is highly recommended!

It’s like a buffet of hot men, sex and engaging plots! I’m totally in love with this anthology. I think Finders Keepers by Stacey Espino may have inched out in the amazing department. I’ve read it twice and still enjoy every second of the story. But don’t discount the other stories! What an amazing bunch of sexy shifter tales.
Love anthologies? Read this! Love shifters? Read this! Love romance or drama or action....Basically, read Owned by the Alpha!
Riley is a former sniper and he has his scope on the sexy Marcel but secrets may just cost them their lives.
Talk about starting a book off with a bang, in this case it’s the bang of an rpg. Riley and Marcel have great chemistry. I love that they don’t start off all gooey eyed at each other but literally yelling. Their romance is really spread out over the book and extremely satisfying. The mystery plot is just as good. I like the action and the balance is great. Romantic suspense is a tough genre to get right and I think this author did a fabulous job.
No Impact is an intense read and I look forward to more in this series!
Erica is a Fae princess on the run from the evil king when she’s found by her two, yes that’s right two, shifter mates.
Okay, so this book has a lot of great things about it. Shifters. Awesome! Fae. Fabulous! Action? Yes, yes, fantastic action. And Romance? Oh, that would be a solid and sexy yes. The only reason it didn’t get 5 shiny stars is that Erica accepted the mate thing and fell for her shifters way too quickly. Other than that, this was the great start to a series.
I look forward to more books by this talented trio!
