Decay By Michelle Irwin


**arc received for honest review by Mel from Bloggers From Down Under**

I’m going to keep this review short and sweet as you just have to read it!!

Decay is Declan’s POV of what happen throughout Beastly.

“Every piece of information only led to more questions”.

There are parts in Decay that you don’t read in Beastly as it’s what Dec does when he is by himself his calls with Alyssa, his police visits, what happens when his home how the family function.

“My daughter is missing and I’m placing the blame for anything and everything that has happened to her squarely where it belongs.

Throughout Decay as we know in Beastly Dec and Beau aren’t the best of friends and Dec doesn’t like Beau as he thinks he has something to do with Phoebe’s disappearance, but we see their relationship evolve and Dec start to realise how much Beau actually does love Phoebe and that sometimes in parts he fells Beau’s pain as it was similar to when he was without Alyssa and Phoebe back in the day.

“Not that I can ride it at the moment. I’ve been banned until the ice clears from the roads. It’s here actually. Do you want to see it?”

As always, another 5-star read by this amazing author she always seems to take us with her on the journey with the character’s I feel a part of their world and I sometimes sit here while reading the book talking to them even sometimes screaming at them as well as laughing and crying.

Michelle’s writing grips you from the very 1st book that makes you continue reading her series and keeps you wanting more and never wanting the series to end!

Thank you for another amazing read!!

Our Book Review – Meant For Us – JM Nash


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

Guys….This hurt, like heart splintering into a million pieces hurt….And I absolutely loved every minute of it.

We meet Jason and Lexi. So very happily married with two beautiful boys that they raise together. They have great jobs, a beautiful home, their marriage perfect.
But it hasn’t always been that way. 
They were faced with the ultimate challenge, when Jason was diagnosed with cancer. As a family they fought together, Jason getting the treatment that he needed. The result?
As a family, a wife, a husband they could all breathe again.
Jason was given the all clear.

Move ten years on….It’s back.
The cancer has taken over Jasons body.
But this time there is no hope.
There is no treatment.
There is no recovery.
Jason is dying.
He only has months to live.

As a family they have to brace for the heartbreaking and ultimate ending of Jasons life.
Jasons biggest fear is Lexi.
How will she cope once he’s gone?
How will Lexi live being alone?
What will Lexi do?

So Jason has an idea.
An idea that even had me blown away and I had trouble digesting it.
Jason wants to make sure that Lexi is not on her own through the grieving process.
So he does the unthinkable.
He seeks a man that will replace him.
He seeks a man that will ultimately be his replacement in Lexis life once he’s gone. 

His name….Cole.

Guys this is a first for me. I have read so many novels, but this….this is a unique as they come. 
A love triangle of sorts.
A husband wanting the best for his wife.
A stranger thrown into a family setting.
A wife still coming to terms with the heartache of knowing her soulmate only has months to live.

This is the lives of Jason, Lexi and Cole.

This novel is powerful and so very unique beyond measure. It’s confronting and highly emotional and highlights the struggles faced when dealing with such a sensitive and cruel situation.
It completely broke my heart reading it, but it also made me question…..What would I do faced with the same situation? What would I want as my legacy long after I’m gone?

I cannot recommend Meant For Us highly enough….But please keep the tissues handy, you are going to need them.

A 5 star read.

Our Book Review – Dirty Wife Games (Indecent Games #2) by Clarissa Wild


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

Okay, okay….
I am a HUGE Clarissa Wild fan. I have read just about everything that she has written, so when I started to read Dirty Wife Games I knew that I was in for one hell of a ride.

Now here I am after finishing it and I am speechless people, just speechless.
What the hell did I just read?
I can’t get my head around it.
Twisted, dark, gritty, raw and confronting is what it was.
Sinful, delicious and all things naughty.
It was freaking mind blowing and I loved every single minute of it.

We meet Hyun.
She’s in a loveless, degrading and humiliating marriage to a man who is a monster.
She never loved him to begin with, but Hyun was bought. 
Her parents sold her to him.
Her life is what nightmares are made of.
She can’t stay trapped in this world.
She can’t allow him to take her heart and soul.
So she does the only thing she knows how to do.
She runs as far away from him as she can, in hopes that he will never find her.
Because if he does, it may just mean her death.

We meet Drake.
He has watched her from a distance, in the shadows away from prying eyes.
He yearns to touch her, to feel her, to be with her.
But he can’t.
It’s not the right time.
But he will, he just has to be patient.
Time is the key.
Hyun will be his.
He will own her.

Welcome to Hyun and Drakes world, where nothing is what it seems.
Where secrets will be revealed.
Where death will surround them.
Where revenge will be bittersweet.

Guys I am begging you, you need to read this. Dirty Wife Games. It’s so twisted, it’s like a jig saw puzzle trying to piece everything together, but believe me you will not see what’s coming. It will blow your mind.

A HUGE wtf 5 star read

My breathing is shallow, ragged, as I silently watch her look up at me with those doe-like eyes. She’s magnificent, so innocent … so ripe for the taking.

I don’t know if she’s ready for me … but I can’t return to where we were before.

Her eyes are skidding across the room, and then they zoom in on me. Her lips part but no sound comes out … yet.

I place a finger on my lips and shush her softly, a devious smile lingering. I whisper seductively, “Don’t make a sound. We don’t want the neighbors to hear.”

I prowl closer, approaching the foot of her bed without taking my eyes off her. I feel like an animal, raging with hormones that beg me to fuck her. But I have to take it slowly, so I don’t scare her.

But as my knees touch her toes, she pulls them back, drawing the blanket back too. I can see her sucking in a breath when I lean over and place my hands on the bed.

She watches my every move as I hover over her legs, my mouth salivating from the mere anticipation of tasting her. Her bare feet are in front of me, and I bend over to kiss the top, my fingers softly sliding up her leg. Her skin erupts into goose bumps.

I bite my lip and kiss her ankle, gazing up at her to see if she’s still looking. I want her to see everything I do… everything she makes me do.

Just as I watched her, I want her to be a spectator now.

Beastly By Michelle Irwin


 **arc received for honest review**

As always Michelle Irwin nails it!!

I have been following Michelle since Declan Reede’s series started and this is one author I can not get enough of!

Continuation from book 2 we all know Phoebe was taken by the psyco Xavier, Xavier didn’t take there break up to well and his very possessive with what he thinks is his and that’s Phoebe.

This book was told in Beau’s POV which is awesome cause that damn accent and sweet charm he has gets me every time maybe its just a me thing or maybe an Aussie thing but Michelle nails that accent.

So after Beau received the call from Phoebe telling him that she needs to get away and that they were done poor Beau is heart broken he loses it and hits the alcohol, who wouldn’t!

Beau convinces himself that it will be ok and he will see Phoebe at the race they have coming up, he doesn’t think for a minute Phoebe would miss her race and let down the team or her family and more so when she has practiced so much for this race. She has a lot riding on this race.

Will she let her team down?

Will she let her family down?

Will Xavier let her go long enough to race?

And the answer is a big fat NO!!

Phoebe is a no show at the race and Cash has to step up and race Phoebe’s car so it at least hits the track.

After a tragic weekend racing Beau heads back to Richards racing just as he hits his office all hell breaks loose and Mr hot as hell Declan Reede is in town.

Dec as we know when his on a mission for answers he isn’t going to stop until he finds them, he wants his little girl found and found now!

Beau and Dec don’t have the best relationship as Beau becomes a suspect with Phoebes disappearance but with Angle sticking her nose in and mashing the two together in the end they become a team and a force to be beckoned with.

Once there two brains are mashed together and a mysterious phone call from Phoebe can these two find her before its two late?

Will he medical condition fail her before she is found?

Will they be to late?

As we said Michelle nailed another amazing book that just leaves us wanting more we are taken on a beautiful journey that’s not always rainbow and unicorns but it makes them feel real this whole series makes me feel like these are real people make me feel like there friends and we are just watching there lives unfold before us.

We love watching the characters grow into there own person and there personalities shine through.
