SYNOPSIS

They say heavy is the head that wears the crown …

Andino Marcello’s world is turned upside down when he becomes the next heir apparent to the Marcello empire. He was comfortable in his place as a Capo, but comfort is for the weak in the world of mafioso. The boss’s seat is waiting. It takes meeting a tattooed beauty who has no idea who Andino is or the criminal legacy he now carries beneath his three-piece suits, and charming smile for him to finally bend the rules set out for him. That doesn’t mean he can keep her.

They say things that never challenge you won’t change you …

Haven Murphy is doing her own thing, and she does it well. The owner of a successful Brooklyn strip club, she makes it her only goal to never fail. She’s just trying to live her life when a morning jog puts her face to face with a man that will change the direction of her life with a single conversation. She knows there’s a dark side to him beyond his good looks, and three-piece suits, but it’s hard for her to care when she wants him. That doesn’t mean he can be hers.

He’s going to break her heart; she’s going to keep his.

Because duty waits on no one.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT: DUTY

“Bad things happen to people who aren’t paying attention,” the woman said.

Andino nodded. “That’s true.”

She gave him another look, adding, “I guess the bad guys probably don’t wear three-piece suits, or walk their dogs in the middle of broad daylight.”

Funny.

Hadn’t he just killed a man a couple of days ago? Didn’t he have a gun hidden at his back? Wasn’t he just told he would be the heir to a criminal empire?

That all spelled bad guy to him.

Just in different ways.

“Life is busy,” Andino said, whistling after for Snaps to come back. Unquestioningly, the dog left the woman’s side, and came back to his master to sit patiently at Andino’s leather loafers. “Too busy for me, maybe. I don’t like change, but someone decided something recently that changed everything for me. Walking Snaps clears my head.”

The woman crossed her arms over her chest, and it drew Andino’s attention to the colorful artwork tattooed up her arms. Full sleeves on both arms, ink covering her throat, and traveling down to where the baggy tank top dipped low on her chest.

Damn.

He wondered what kind of stories her ink told.

Something amazing, probably.

“You should take a break, then, stranger who wears a three-piece suit to walk his dog.” Her tone was half-amused, and half-teasing. “You looked happy right before I interrupted—I bet Snaps would like you to take a break, too.”

“I—”

Andino’s phone buzzed with a call—he cursed as he shoved his hand into his pocket, and pulled the offensive device out to check the call.

Dante.

The boss.

No shunning a boss.

It was a rule.

He turned slightly to make his shoulder face the woman as he picked up the call. “Yeah, boss, what can I do for you?”

“Nothing you can’t handle, I am sure.”

The last thing Andino wanted to do was handle business. Any kind of business. He thought of the woman, and her words. Maybe she had a fucking point. 

“Actually, I need a couple of weeks,” Andino said.

“Excuse me?” Dante asked.

“Yeah, I need a break.”

“For …?”

“At this point, whatever the hell I want. And anything that is not in this city.”

He needed to get away, and just … relax. Maybe then he wouldn’t get so snappy when his mother asked about women in his life, or whatever. Maybe then he might start to feel better about this whole fucking boss thing.

“Is this about the business, and la famiglia again, Andi?”

“Do you really need me to answer that?”

“You’re the right choice,” Dante said quietly. “The best choice. And you know it.”

“Fact remains. You’ve upended what I thought was my life. I need time to adjust.”

Dante sighed harshly, and Andino knew then he was going to get what he wanted. After all, Dante would want to keep him happy.

This was a two-way street.

A give and take.

“Fine, but—”

“No buts,” Andino interjected. “A break is a fucking break.”

“Has your father ever told you that you’re a demanding little shit?”

“Yes, and also that it suits me.”

Dante grumbled under his breath, but Andino was pretty sure his uncle said, “He’s not wrong.”

“Yeah, well—”

“Take your break.”

Dante hung up the phone without a goodbye. Andino wished he could say he was surprised. Turning on his heel to apologize and say goodbye to the woman who had been at the mouth of the connecting trail, he found the spot empty.

And the woman gone.

Fuck.

He hadn’t even gotten her name.

Snaps looked up at Andino with his big, dark eyes—ready and willing to find yet another stick to be thrown for him, probably.

“Where did she go?” Andino asked his dog.

Snaps simply wagged his stubby tail.

Thanks for the help, buddy.

SYNOPSIS

For ten summers Claire and her mother had been guests at the Prescott’s beach house at Kelly’s Cove. And for ten years she played with Mallory and her twin brother, Colin. But it wasn’t until she returned after college graduation for her last summer there, that she realized Colin had grown into a guy who made her knees knock just by smiling at her. Being from different worlds, she knew nothing would come from her attraction to him.

Having returned to the states from studying abroad for four years, the last person Colin thought he’d find staying in his bedroom was Claire Ashton. Lanky and awkward during her adolescent years, he had to look twice to make sure this was the same girl. After a week together it was obvious he’d overlooked something before, because he felt things for her he’d never experienced before. There was only one problem—his last name and all that came with it would never permit him to be with her.

In the end, it’s either love or prestige that will win in the game of love.

Review:

Rewrite the Stars is reminiscent of the classic tales of love that we have seen from star-crossed lovers like Romeo and Juliet or Tristan and Isolde. It has been so long since I found a good love story that reminds me why I love the “you and me against the world” plot line so much.

Colin and Claire were meant to be together but circumstances has kept them apart that it seems like bridging their gap from each other will only keep them apart. I got swept into their love story almost immediately! It made me so engrossed with their story, the intrigue, the secrets, and the lies surrounding that world.

This book is definitely recommended for those who are hopeless romantics at heart. It is so touching and heartwarming to see these characters get the happy ending they deserve.

Sex is his weapon. 
Power is her drug. 

Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it—so be it. 

The problem is … she just wasn’t prepared for all of him. 

Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen’s plans in her effort to gain power, but he’s a better player than she knows. 

The thing is … women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.

They’re broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there’s a monster at his back who made him that way. 

And monsters like those hide in plain sight.

Review:

Bethany-Kris is on a roll this 2018! I literally love all her releases this year and I’m also highly anticipating EVERY SINGLE BOOK that she is set to release this year. I’ve been waiting for Dishonored for a year now and it absolutely blew me away! It defied all my expectations of what a standalone novel should be and believe me, my expectations were really high as I’ve been a fan of the Seasons of Betrayal universe since it came out.

I was skeptical at first by the spin-off from the Seasons series since the expectations vs reality thing will always be present in this kind of novel. But, wow. Dishonored’s character plot line is so intricately written that you find yourself so invested with each character’s trials and tribulations. Believe me, the first chapter will really get you so hooked that you’ll find yourself loving and hating how the story unfolds as you read it.

What stands out the most in this book is that both the hero and heroine are nothing like you’ve ever seen before. They are both irreverent, unapologetic, and cunning in their own way. Aria De Rose has her own personal agenda and a power struggle within the Camorra organization that she is trying to win at all cost no matter what the consequences.

I love Aria because she is the epitome of what a strong independent female character should be. She has channeled all her pain and hardship into a relentless driving force that will make her come out on top and be the last woman standing.

And of course, we have Ceasar Accardo on the other end of the spectrum. His “I-don’t-give-a-fuck” attitude instantly endeared me from the get-go. Some may find his character hard to like at first but what lies beneath his asshole attitude is a person who was forced to grow up too soon from the abuse and neglect of his household.

These two didn’t lead perfect lives. They are scarred and flawed. They struggled and fought to get what they want. But despite all the odds against their favor, they still found a way to choose to be with each other. They didn’t get to live “normal” lives and finally get to live happily ever after in the end. They have managed to find a compromise that works for them because of their mutual love and respect for each other. And that is something what I think is the most enthralling part of this book.

Review:

Bone by Dee Palmer is one steamy and sexy romance that you surely wouldn’t want to miss. The witty comebacks, snarky lines and overall humorous banter and chemistry between two protagonists, Regan and Joel, made me so invested that I literally couldn’t put the book down up until the very end.

The way the plotline unfolded was totally spectacular! I never would have guessed how it would all come together in the end. I liked how the book kept me on my toes with all the drama and the sexual tension surrounding the characters.

What I love most about their story is how it showed you to give love a second chance. It is unmistakable that Regan and Joel still had feelings for each other but they were just too stubborn to admit it. Amidst the tragedy that struck Regan’s family, she finally found someone she could lean on with Joel.

Meet Author Ker Dukey
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Review:

That cliffhanger at the end of the Four Fathers series made it quite obvious that there SHOULD be another set of books that will tie up the whole story together. And Nixon totally did not disappoint in doing just that. Nixon dealt with the aftermath of the events that happened in Wheeler from the Four Fathers series. I really liked those series and believe me when I say that this one totally lived up to my expectations. This one picked up where the previous series left off, so it’s advisable to read the Four Fathers series first before diving into Nixon.

I loved how Nixon struggled with his sense of self and identity. The question of whether he’s a psychopath or not was always at the back of his mind. In the end, he was able to finally deal with the questions plagued him and resolve his own issues in order to protect his family.

While a number of people may find the story unconventional, I loved how it showed a unique take on how a “family” ought to be together in order to protect one of their own. It’s about allowing yourself to give love a second chance amidst all the betrayal and heartache of the past. Plus, I was just so happy that Rowan finally had her much-deserved happily ever after.

A shadow meets the light …

When someone needs to disappear, the Chicago mob calls on Joe Rossi. A man who can move without a sound, and kill without a word, they don’t call him the Shadow for nothing.

This time, it’s a New York crime family in need of his skills, but it takes one glimpse of her to make him agree to the job.

Liliana Marcello is every inch a principessa della mafia. Her life has taught her to be wary of strangers, yet her ballet career contradicts everything by putting her on display.

It’s a man with a dark smile and a constantly changing demeanor that makes her feel safe again, but it’s the unknown that holds her back.

It takes one look …
One dance …
One word …
One smile to captivate a man.

And one second to kill a woman because of it, too.

Not all monsters hide in the shadows.
How are you supposed to see them coming?

Review:

Whether it’s a series or standalone, you can always guarantee that Bethany-Kris will NEVER disappoint you when it comes to delivering a mafia romance that we all want to read and swoon over. And Joe Rossi and Liliana Marcello’s love story is definitely one of them. Although they met under unusual circumstances, it is obvious that their magnetic attraction to each other is there from the get-go.

I love that despite how different their lives are, they still found a way to be with each other. The ballerina and the hitman. Who would have thought right? Liliana’s passion for her art is definitely something that any strong and independent woman can relate to. Amidst all the devastating setbacks that she encountered, she has managed to overcome those and still find the strength to aim high and reach for her dreams. And as a woman, I really find that encouraging and empowering.

Then there’s Joe, the unassuming hitman who preferred to remain in the shadows. Until Liliana came into his life and just made his job a tad bit more complicated. If you’ve read the Chicago Wars series, you will definitely see the parallelisms between Joe and his dad, Damian. The torch has definitely been passed on to the next generation of assassins in the family. HAHA.

What captivated me the most about this story is that both the characters had their own lives to lead but they have chosen to be with each other and fight for each other. I especially love how Joe remained so supportive in terms of Liliana’s career as a ballerina. He never once discouraged her from her passions but instead, he remained as her number one supporter who cheered her on every step of the way. He’s definitely one of the Top 10 Book Boyfriends that’s is just certified swoon-worthy.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review:

With the obvious cliffhanger that was in the first book, I was really excited to find out how the story will unfold in the culmination of the Blue Line Duet. But at the same time, I was also dreading its outcome. Since I became so invested in the characters right away, I didn’t want their story arc to end up in a tragedy.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Meghan Quinn’s work, but this one far exceeded my expectations. I was floored by the cliffhanger in the first book, but I should have expected that there will be more pleasant surprises after reading the second one. The Downside of Love is nothing like how I expected it would be and that I think is one of the main reasons why I was so obsessed with reading it from the get-go. I was thoroughly amazed and even more surprised at how the story all came together in the end.

Meghan Quinn delivered an absolutely emotional romance that I have never read from her works before this duet. The plight of each character was so wonderfully woven together that you get to sympathize with every one of them as they all tried to figure out their lives. I must admit that the plot totally threw a curveball that may have defied my expectation, but that I think, is one of the main highlights of the story. It teaches us that a semblance of happily ever afters can be found in even the most unlikely circumstances.
