Book Review – Savage Reckoning (A Savage Love Duet #2) by T.L. Smith


** Provided on behalf of the author for an honest review **
** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **

Every time you pick up a novel by T.L. Smith you know one thing is for sure….You are always guaranteed twisted.

And that is exactly what she delivered.

We are reunited with the dark and dangerous Connick, the delusion Derrick, and the fragile and broken Malinka.
A love triangle of sorts, both Connick and Derrick will fight to have the one woman that they are both obsessed with. The one woman that has completely captivated them. The one woman that they are willing to do anything for.

But Malinka is broken, damaged. The scars from her past haunt her each and every single day. Can she ever have a normal life, or will she be destined to be surrounded by the evil that lurks?  

We are also introduced to someone new. Someone who isn’t afraid to speak the truth. Someone who isn’t afraid to make their presence felt. Someone who isn’t afraid to take a life. 

What an absolute brilliant read. A love story, yes that’s right a love story but in a twisted, dark and dangerous kind of way that I couldn’t put down.
T.L just completely blows my mind every time I sit down to read her. Savage Reckoning was dark, sinful, edgy, confronting, heartbreaking, breathtaking and deadly. It had everything that I could’ve asked for. Sheer brilliance.

An absolute perfect way to end the Savage Love Duet.

Release Blitz – Caveman – Author: Jo Raven 

Title: Caveman 

Author: Jo Raven 

Genre: Romance

Photographer: Eric Battershell

Model: Nick Bennett

Cover Design: RBA Designs 

Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.

Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.

Sweet, right?

Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.

Sounds like the perfect deal.

Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.

But oh so sexy.

And I need the job. I can do this.

One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.

That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.

Book Review – Backseat With The Billionaire (A Bad Boy Dark Romance) by Lilah May


** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **

A debut novel by Lilah May, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to get reading this novel, and I was excited to dig in.

What I did get was a hot, raunchy, heartwarming, fun loving read that I couldn’t put down.

We meet Lisa. 
Married with a teenage daughter.
Life is good with Lisa, or so she thought.
Until she discovers that her husband is cheating on her.
Not just cheating on her, but cheating on her with a younger woman, a MUCH younger woman.
And she has the pictures to prove it.
So Lisa does what any woman would do.
Kicks his butt to the kerb. (But how she does it is absolutely hilarious)

We meet Bobby.
Young, dark and dangerous, all things sinful. 
A college student who is not only a MMA fighter, but a billionaire in his own right.
He has worked hard for his success.
But there was a reason behind it.
Bobby made sure he could go to her and give her everything.
Booby made sure he could go to her and provide her with everything her heart desired.
Because Bobby has been in love with her all of his short life.

Yes that’s right folks, Bobby is in love with Lisa, she just doesn’t know it yet.
But she will.
And when she does, questions will be asked.
What will Bobby’s parents think?
What will Lisa’s daughter think?
Can they overcome the age difference?
Can Lisa overcome the betrayal?
Will Lisa let Bobby in?
Can Bobby break down all of Lisa’s walls and finally have her?
What secrets will be revealed that could destroy everything?

Again I have to say guys I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. From the very first chapter I was hooked. It was all things naughty and delicious with a touch of humour that had me laughing my butt off. I loved both Bobby and Lisa’s character, the banter between them was playful, the chemistry between them was explosive. A great read from Lilah May.

Release Boost – The Bad Guy – Author: Celia Aaron


Title: The Bad Guy

Author: Celia Aaron

Genre: Dark Romance

Release Date: May 21, 2017


My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this

I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once
in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will
get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of
my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.

Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek
forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company.
Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I
lost her.

She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But
every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all
down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he
wants. That’s me.

I’m the bad guy.

Book Review – Repeating History (Book #1) by Hanleigh Bradley


** Review by Kylie from Bloggers From Down Under **

“He was the ruler by which I measured my growth. He was the stick by which I measured my tears. He was the tape by which I measured my success and he was the string by which I measured the size of my heart”

Set your mind back to your high school years, and imagine there is a boy who you were secretly, desperately in love with. Imagine if you never told him how you felt. Imagine being on the receiving end of taunts and teasing by said boy.

Now imagine if years later, you had the chance to set things right. Would you finally tell the man standing in front of you, your new work colleague, the boy of your dreams, how you felt all those years ago?

For you, it’s him, it’s always been him.

But what if you were everything to him too?

And what if just as you were getting your life together, one thing from your past is about to potentially ruin everything?

Another exciting series from Hanleigh Bradley, who brought us the entertaining 5 star Rules Series.

This book will seriously have you wanting more from this talented writer.
