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!
Nevin meets Marco in the most unlikely of places, the basement of a serial killer…
And that starts the blurb! You're damn right I picked this book up and devoured the story. Nevin just lost his mother and he's moved upstate for a new job. The job as a stripper is a bust and the date afterward ... knocks him out. When Nevin wakes up he's in a cage in some dark basement. Marco has been here a while. He's angry, exhausted and hopeless thoughts are in his mind. But then Nevin arrives and together, they have to face the serial killer.
Holy crap! So many emotions! Shocked. Scared. Sad. Upset. Stunned. Aww. Excitement. Romantic. Omg! Oh, sexy. Okay. Okay. You need sentences. Gotcha. So, Nevin is adorable. Poor guy just lost his mother and then is kidnapped. That's not the worse part. There is a glossed over rape scene that broke my heart. It was very brief and there were no details. Marco is also in bad shape. He's been beaten and humiliated. My heart was breaking for them! I can't give away too many details but their romance was an amazing roller coaster. They're both damaged, some issues obvious, but others not. I'm actually really blown away by this series. This is the third book and they've all been fabulous. Beauty Has Balls is my favorite book so far. If you've read the previous books you will probably know who the killer is but the ending is so damn satisfying. I literally was on the edge of my seat and shouting, "Yes! Damn right!" I cannot wait to read more in The Cox Club.
Beauty Has Balls is a must read. Period. You have to read this romantic thriller!

Emmi is the mob boss’ youngest daughter and Digger is a hitman that’s been in love with her since they were kids. She’s refused his advances every time, uncomfortable with his job. When her twelve year relationship ends and she kisses Digger under the mistletoe it opens her eyes …
Oh my God, Emmi, yes! I love her attitude, I love her spunk, I love her personality. She is an instant like for me. She’s heartbroken about being dumped by her long-time boyfriend but that didn’t get rid of her steel spine. Digger, ah, Digger. Seriously. Sexy, over the moon for Emmi and refuses to give her up. He’s a contract killer and I am totally on the same page as Emmi with that. Unhappy but damn it, Digger was hard to dislike except the hard-on for killing people. That is creepy. The heat is intense but scene after scene after scene of sex is a bit overkill. By the third or is it fourth sex scene in a row I started skimming them. It is just too much sex after sex after sex. Space those out, pretty please!
The story is really fantastic, I wish the author cut some of the repetitive sex scenes out but other than that this is a brilliant start to a new series! The family dynamic is seriously complicated and it feels so real that it completely sucked me in.

Monsters by James Cox
Sunshine and Snakes by L.J. Longo
Live or Die by Kai Tyler
$250,000 Love by Jessie Pinkham
Silent Devotion by Angelique Voisen
This is a mixed bag for me. There are stories in this anthology that amazed me and other that just didn’t work. So, I’m going to talk about the one’s I did like.
The first story is monsters by James Cox. A simple, average guy is going out with a new man. But then the boyfriend blows up his lover’s whole family! I had no idea how the hell that was going to work in a romance?! I am pleasantly surprised and then I was turned on. Seriously hot! Let me just say, a dom that’s a bottom and holy hell, so freaking hot! I’m excited that this is part of a series too.
The second story is Sunshine and Snacks about a hitman that always gets his guy, even when he’s in prison. However, when he finds out who his next victim will be, he hesitates. This is a great story! Plenty of action, lots of the feels and a beautiful if dark and dirty romance. I really, really, really like this couple!
The third story I like is Live or Die by Kai Tyler. This has to do with an undercover agent, a cartel and old romances that haven’t been doused. The action and twists are done beautifully! I love pace that kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters are okay. I’m not totally in love with one of the main characters personality. This does have a great ending though.
I know what you’re thinking. If I only love a few stories why should you buy this book? Because those stories are not just great, they’re fabulous and sexy and totally worth it!

The love of June’s life walks out on her pregnant and heartbroken. She learned a harsh lesson and when that asshole returns she refuses to be anything but angry. Killian is on the job when he falls in love with June. His past a lie but sometime later he finds her and his child. This Irish assassin had no idea he had a kid, let alone one with the woman he fell for completely. Can he change her mind? Will he get a second chance?
I went into this book immediately hating Killian. Judging? Yes. I hate the fact that he left her and yes, I know it was to protect her. Let me just say, by the end of the book, I love Killian. I understood why he did what he did. He’s an assassin but it’s always the criminals and creeps. Now, I’m feeling a bit bad about judging him so harshly in the beginning. This is a fabulous, sweet, sexy, dark story about Killian finding his happy ending. June is naive when she thought Killian would be hers forever, that quickly changes when he walks out on her. My heart broke for her. Raising her child, dejected, trying to move on (hugging my kindle). The story plays out beautifully. From hate to tolerating to like to love and then the danger kicks in. Romance, suspense and talented authors makes this a five-star combination!
Charming Asshole is completely charming and a total must read!
A horrible home invasion led to Celina’s husband being shot and killed. However, an alluring demon gives Celina a choice for revenge. It seems like Celina may just get the bloody justice she seeks but not all is what it seems in this paranormal world...
Wow! Big, huge, amazing wow! I love this book. Let’s start off with the plot. A wife bent on revenge, a demon, lies and deception. Sounds good, doesn’t it? The blurb sure grabbed me. Then we get fabulous characters with plot twists and sexy scenes. The story is so rich with details. It’s about finding the truth in a sea of lies and all the while she’s fighting her feelings for this sexy demon. Once again, wow! I cannot wait to read more!
My Soul to Give is a paranormal gem and should be at the top of your tbr list!
Bain’s had a rough life, made rougher by his decision to work for Killer Of Kings but things went awry. Now he’s got a curvy little temptation tied up in the basement…...
Scarlett is simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. She’s desperate in her career but when an assassination attempt happens, she’s kidnapped by the hitman Bain. They are a seriously complicated couple but their romance worked deliciously. I like the push and pull between them that ultimately leads to a ‘happy ending’.
Is you like dark, twisted romance then you’re going to love this series! Broken Bastard is a must read!
Prepare yourself ...…this book is intense!
Viper is hired to kill Pepper but he’s attracted to the curvy lady who in turn hires him to protect her. He’s happy to oblige even if he’s risking his life for this beautiful stranger.
Wow! Hello! This book is crazy good! Viper is pure sex on legs. He’s gorgeous but he’s got that dark side that makes him extremely dangerous. Pepper is an insecure (really, really insecure) woman that is dealing with a family that wants her dead. I love the plot, it’s a romantic suspense burst. It’s splattered with sex scenes that had me very nearly drooling over my ereader. Seriously. Fans self.
If you like dark romance, then Taking Her Innocence should be at the top of your TBR pile!
Dark and Dirty is a 4 story anthology that’s all about the dark romance. Does it deliver? Yes! Sexy? You’re going to need a cold shower or your significant other available. How about a plot? Nothing is worse than hot sex without a story to go with it. Guess what, this anthology has it all!
NOT ONE NIGHT by D.C. Stone

Each story has its own unique contemporary plot and sexy characters. I enjoyed them all. If you’re looking for sweet romance then run right along. If you like things on the edgy side then definitely give this book a try.
Dark and Dirty is exactly as the name implies, a highly recommend read!
