This month was an okay month for me.
I read 9 books. It was still a pretty slow month for me over all.

I really enjoyed Jenna and Enzo’s story.
In my mind, this book wasn’t as “taboo” as some of the other taboo treats from K. Webster.
I think Enzo was just the person Jenna needed and that he came into her life at the perfect time.
Jenna had a rough childhood but Enzo changed that for her.
I think this story was just and overall good story with some hot scenes.
I really enjoyed this story.
I loved how Zee and Jubilee have a connection like no other. But this connection is not because of something good, it is because of a tragedy.
Zee and Jubliee both lost a sibling one night in a storm.
Zee blames Jubliee for the tragedy.
Jubliee blames herself and Zee.
They fight like cats and dogs. They can’t even be in the same room.
But whether she knows it or not, Zee is there and always has her back.
Then one night changes everything.
But can one night change years of hate and resentment?
Or will that one night make everything worse?
Of course, Lani adds in some creepy people to make the story juicy and she slides on funny stories in that have actually happened to her in real life.
I liked the back and forth between Zee and Jubilee. I like how it wasn’t instant love. I like how they had to work on it and work for it. I think that made it more relatable that they actually had to work on their relationship.
Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.
The Seven Deadly Sins, or in this case The Elite Seven.
Choosing leaders for this society takes intense focus. Only seven are to be selected, and the investment and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years.
Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their reward. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything.
Rhett has always wanted to be in The Elite Seven, since the first time he heard about them. After going through a terrible loss, Rhett felt that The Elite Seven was how his life would change. But he had to get into it first, and he had no clue if he would be picked or not.
When Rhett and his friend God (it’s a nickname) are asked to join The Elite Seven, they are told they have to complete a task before they can enter.
What is Rhett’s task? You’ll have to read to find out. But let’s just say that he is not happy at all about his task. And this task has to do with a girl he has started to bond with, Chastity.
Will this task tear him and Chastity apart? Will he be able to do this task or will he lose his opportunity to be in The Elite Seven?
This was a great start to The Elite Seven series. I cannot wait to see what the next 6 books hold!!!
This is my first alien romance book, and let me tell you something…. I was not disappointed.
This book isn’t for everyone. There are parts that some people might see as a “trigger”.
Braccan is trying to save his race. His planet is lost and dying and he is running out of options.
When 5 women – aliens to him – are found and brought to his planet, he knows what he needs to do. He needs to mate. Him and his men need to mate this these aliens to keep their planet alive.
Aria has no idea where she is when she wakes up from a long sleep. She thinks she is in rehab but quickly realizes that something is wrong. That she is in a place that is far from home.
But one thing Aria knows a lot about is how to survive. And she is determined to survive her current situation.
When Aria realizes what Braccan wants to do – mate- she decides she will do what she need to do to survive. Even if that means mate with an alien.
But as Braccan and Aria spend more time together, things change. Their relationship changes. Their dynamic changes.
But what happens when it’s time to wake the other women to mate? Will the aliens listen to Aria and take her advice on it? or will they do whatever they want to do? Will Aria be about to provide a child for Braccan or will it all be for nothing?
This book was way more than I expected. I am not really a sci-fi fan, so reading this pushed me out of my comfort zone. But I am so glad I did. I’m excited for book two!
This is my first book from Eva Charles and I can say I was not disappointed!
Gabrielle never expected JD (Julian) Wilder to re-enter her life. After years of being apart, and not by her doing, he randomly shows back up the night his father wins the presidency.
Gabrielle has known JD since she was little. Her mom used to work for his family. But she knows he is up to no good when he walks into her hotel. And she was right.
JD Wilder always gets what he wants and he wants Gabrielle back in his life for more than one reason. He gives her a business proposition, one he knows won’t turn down because someone she loves depends on this deal.
Gabrielle agrees to the proposition but things don’t work out the way JD plans.
Gabrielle is not happy about this proposition but does what she needs to do for a person she loves. But Gabrielle doesn’t know the entire story. She doesn’t know the main reason JD showed back up. And he won’t completely tell her.
But what happens when random, weird things start happening around Gabrielle’s hotel? Will JD be able to find out who is messing with Gabrielle or will it be to late?
I really liked the characters in this story. I think they had great character development. JD comes off as an ass but he really does have a good heart. Gabrielle is such a sweetheart but she is also a very strong women.
There are a few parts of the book that could be hard to read if you can’t handle “dark” reads.
I can not wait for the second book to see how this story ends!
Eliana needs revenge. She craves it.
Asher needs her to remember her past to be able to move into the future.
Eliana and Asher are a force when they are together.
This book is raw and gritty. It is defiantly a dark romance mixed with a psychological thriller.
I think the pace of the book is pretty good. I felt the first few chapters went by very fast, but I think the rest was really good.
I love Dani Rene and she knows it but this is not my favorite book by her.
I just could not connect with this book.
But, I can’t wait for the next one!
Tessa and Price have a different type of story. She applies for a job as his assistant but she doesn’t know who he is. He tells her the job isn’t easy. They will be moving to the mountains to work on his book for the next 6 months and that once she is there she can’t leave. Tessa is fine with that because she has nothing and no one that is going to miss her.
Once they are there, Tessa releases that this job was more than she though it was going to be. She loves it in the mountains but her and Price have a lot of sexual tension.
They end up together but they aren’t “really” together. Tessa is confused and Price knows he can’t give her what she needs.
There is some BDSM in this book. Price is an asshole at times.
This book was an okay read for me. I love Alta and her work but this one wasn’t one of my favorites.
This is the 5th book of the Top Shelf series and I have read all of them so far.
In this book you have Cheri and Prince Roman. Cheri and Roman are about to have an arranged marriage, a marriage that was planned when they were kids. Cheri isn’t happy about the marriage. She doesn’t want to be a princess but she has loved Roman for her entire life.
The problem is, in order to marry Roman, she must go through an initiation into a secret, ancient society called the Iron Colt Brotherhood.
This is where the book turns dark. And I mean pretty dark. Roman must do certain things to Cheri to prove that she is worthy to be part of this society.
Will Cheri be able to do what she need to do in order to marry Roman? What happen the initiation is over? Will Cheri ever be the same? Or will everything change?
This isn’t my favorite Top Shelf book. I love Alta and her books but this one was just lacking something for me. I think it was because the book was a bit short. I needed something more.
But overall it was still a good read.
So I love Ker Dukey and she knows it.
But…. I just could not connect to this book.
The writing was good.
The storyline was good. Reminded me a bit of “You”.
But I just could not connect.
