I loved her book “Wanderlust,” so I knew what to expect from her. In addition, the blurb was fantastic. It caught my eye the moment I read it. And since I was in the mood for something edgy, I chose this book. To my surprise, this book was not as dark as I had first expected it to be. What […]

Favorite Series – Venom Series by Shanora Williams

I’ve just finished two of the books in this series and I LOVED them. This series is one of my favorite dark romance books. I can’t wait for the final book to be released. I highly recommend this series for those who love unconventional, thought-provoking books and are open to sensitive subjects. Each book cannot be read as a standalone; they need to be read in order. 🙂 About Book 1: Imagine this: Your husband is murdered on your wedding day. Your gown is soiled in his blood. You are taken hostage… Treated like a caged animal. The man behind your […]

This is not a standalone. You need to read the previous book in order to follow this story.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: September 13, 2016 Pages: 188 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon When the author said “this is not for everyone,” I knew right away that this book was for me. I love books that will push my boundaries, drag me out of my comfort zone, and put me in a new level of intense book love. This book really did it to me. However, since it contains taboo and forbidden topics, it is NOT FOR EVERYONE. If you are sensitive to violence, rape, torture, abuse, blood and murder, please, […]

Favorite Series – The Renegades Series by Rebecca Yarros

I have a new favorite series that I highly recommend for those who love college romances.
