Relentless: Dark Billionaire Mafia Romance (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 4) by Via Mari – Review by Jenni Bishop

RelentlessRelentless by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the fourth book – Relentless: Dark Billionaire Mafia Romance in the Billionaire Bodyguards series by one of my fav authors Via Mari. This is a contemporary romance with an edge that is intense and full of suspense and mystery. Via’s stories are always unpredictable and very well written with fantastic characters. She always keeps you on the edge and reveals things that you never see coming. There is sizzling chemistry that is hot sexy with a touch of dominance and submission from these elite security team of alpha men. Add in lots of danger, attitude and sass, a sex trafficking ring and you will be riveted, and engrossed and will keep the pages turning to see what happens.

Layla will do whatever it takes to get her sister back with her and make sure she is safe. Dereck tries to keep the spitfire out of trouble but even this could be too much for him.

Love by Design (The Meraki Series Book 2) by Effie Kammenou – Review by Jenni Bishop

Love by Design (The Meraki Series Book 2)Love by Design by Effie Kammenou
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love by Design (The Meraki Series Book 2) by Effie Kammenou is an enemy to lovers romance. With her rich and vivid descriptions, you are transported to picturesque Greece and Italy. I enjoyed the banter between the MC’s which made the story more fun. This book isn’t just a love story, it is also about family and the mystery they uncover.

Our MC’s are both broken & have traumas from their pasts that elicits trust issues. If they can get past that they may just have something good.

Effie once again slips in recipes which make your mouth water in anticipation.

The Earl and the Peahen (The Scarlet Salon Book 5) by Jean Wilde – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Earl and the PeahenThe Earl and the Peahen by Jean Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Earl and the Peahen is Jean Wilde’s fifth book in the The Scarlet Salon series. It is a historical romance set in Regency times. I enjoyed the banter between the main characters which made it fun to read. The storyline is refreshing and original and had me laughing.

Jane is not like the rest of her family. She is not a beauty but rather plain. All she wants is a marriage of love. The Earl of Norwich wants a wife. Easy huh! Well you would have thought so.

THE HUSBAND (21ST Century Courtesan #4) by Pamela DuMond writing as P. S. DuMond – Review by Jenni Bishop

HUSBAND (21st Century Courtesan Book 4)HUSBAND by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

The Husband (21st Century Courtesan Book 4) by Pamela DuMond is darker than the other books and is full of deceit, and revenge… Pamela as tightened the threads, added more layers and complexities, and it is all coming to a tumultuous head. I love that you never know where she will take you. It is a multi-layered story line and there are lots of emotions. It is dangerous and mysterious, as it is sexy and suspenseful, as it is dramatic, and it is definitely captivating in its uniqueness. It is also hot and full of lust and love, and loyalty.

Evie had quite a harrowing childhood and one tragic event shattered her young life and affects her past and presence. She is an empath who uses it to help others and is much sought after for her specific talents. Unfortunately, it is not just the past that is catching up with her.

I am waiting with bated breath for the arrival of the final book from this wonderful storyteller.

Seductive Prey (Relentless #1) by Vivian Fiano – Review by Jenni Bishop

Seductive Prey (Relentless #1)Seductive Prey by Vivian Fiano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Seductive Prey is book one in The Relentless Trilogy by Vivian Fiano. This gripping story is full of action and suspense and is page turner. Vivian’s writing transports you into the story and the journey of the characters. But it is not all sunshine and roses she certainly puts the characters through many twists and turns and has you on the edge of your seat.

Jordan finds herself with unwanted attention and Grant a devoted police officer is determined to be the one to keep her safe and protect her with his life. The chemistry between these two is so palpable you can feel it. I am waiting with bated breath for the second book for more of Vivian’s writing and her wonderful characters.

Try Right (Aloha Series book 3) by Jill Brashear – Review by Jenni Bishop

Try RightTry Right by Jill Brashear
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Try Right: A Friends to Lovers Romance is a quick read and is set in the stunning background of Hawaii in the 1960s. It is the story of Claudia, an actress, and Henry, a stuntman and is fun to watch their romance unfold.

This is Jill Brashear’s third installment in the Aloha series and is a fun and easy read. It is a sweet romance story where the characters from the previous books intertwine. You don’t have to read the other books in this series, but it does help to have the back story of the characters in this story.

The Luminara Series: Box Set – Volume 1 (Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust) by SJ Molloy – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria - L'amore -Lucca's LustThe Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria – L’amore -Lucca’s Lust by S.J. Molloy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust by SJ Molloy is delightfully dark and erotic. There are three books in this box set which is one of the reasons I love box sets is because you don’t have to wait for the next book. There are some stark themes in these stories with abuse, kidnapping and imprisonment which some readers may need to be aware of and be careful with. The first book starts out as little fluffy but as it goes on the writing gets stronger and more fulfilling. SJ’s descriptive writing gives us something that is gut wrenching, heart pumping and edge of the seat intense.

Together can they put the dark and harmful past behind and forge ahead into the light and sunshine of love and life?

In Plain Sight ( The Broken Bow Book 3) by Ashley A Quinn – Review by Jenni Bishop

In Plain Sight (The Broken Bow Book 3)In Plain Sight by Ashley A. Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ashley A. Quinn’s In Plain Sights is the third book in The Broken Bow series and is a suspenseful contemporary second chance romance. This engaging and emotional read gives us lots of intrigue and danger, drama, and angst that you soon find yourself immersed in and page after page turning. Ashley writes strong characters, vivid and descriptive gripping, and deadly tales.

I won’t give anything away as Ashley’s writing should be experienced firsthand.
