New Release & Review – Hacked, Lucy Lennox and May Archer

July 31, 2022 | Posted in Cover Reveal | By

Well-known computer security infiltration specialist Jasper Huxley has never met a system he can’t hack. Whether his assignment is accessing a highly-classified Pentagon server or modifying his little brother’s high school report card, he’s always got a botnet, an exploit, or a little bit of social engineering he can call up to get the job done.

But there are certain things he can’t finesse, no matter how hard he tries.

•Beating the infuriatingly adorable and maddeningly handsome Kevin Rogers in the ice mammoth expedition during Horn of Glory’s first annual Horn Master Championship week. (Robbery.)

•Accessing stolen cartel data on a device that’s never connected to a network. Pretty sure it’s the fault of a certain busybody gamer who will not be named. (Kev.)

•Sharing a house and–worse–a network with Kev. (Gah.)

•Being forced to allow a non-trained, non-serious, and non-resistable civilian to take part in a critical intel operation. (•side-eyes Kev)

•Navigating social situations with grace when he continues to run into Kev–and his new gamer “boyfriend”–at society events during the course of a critical mission. (Like any serious relationship starts during a game.)

•Keeping Champion Security’s system safe from increasingly sophisticated black hat threats. (Not Kev, but still… annoying.)

In short, when Kevin Rogers is in the picture, the safe and peaceful life Hux has managed to construct for himself gets suddenly and irrevocably… hacked.

(And it’s all Kev’s fault.)

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hacked is the third book in the Licking Thicket: Horn of Glory series by Lucy Lennox and May Archer. I love this series so much! This is Hux and Kev’s story! I have loved both of them since Hijacked and I’m so glad we finally get their story. Hux is part of Champion security and Kev is Carter’s cousin. They have been working together for a while and they have been more enemies than anything! Or so everyone though. Now that they are forced to work side-by-side for the team, the animosity is definitely attraction now. Hux doesn’t think a man like Kev, smart, rich, good and handsome would ever like someone like him. Kev thinks Hux is too experienced, too sexy and too grumpy to like him. Once they let down their guards and work and play together, they realize there’s more than just snarky banter. There’s sexual tension, long looks and casual touches. And then there’s more. Oh boy is there more! I couldn’t love Jasper Huxley and Kevin Rogers more if I tried! They are so funny together, I was laughing out loud. They are also freaking hot together! I feel like the last two books was just foreplay for these two and I was here for it! I love Hux and his sexy tattoos and sweet words. Kevin and his sexy glasses and his brain. I was dying over the game, Horn of Glory, my favorite Champ quote, “I changed my mind. I love this game. The puns are delightful.” The never ending innuendos, the team of hilarious men and women. I just loved all of it!

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Condemned to Love is Siobhan Davis’s newest addictive novel. I have loved every one of her books and when she announced she was writing a mafia story…I was screaming inside. I love mafia and with Siobhan’s additive storylines I knew I was going to fall hard and want more before I even started. I was right. 

Sierra fell in love when she was thirteen. Her love was twenty-one and dating her devil of a sister. She knew she was too young for him but her heart knew he was it. He was the only one who saw her and didn’t treat her like an outsider. She didn’t understand why he was with her sister. She wasn’t too surprised when it didn’t work out but didn’t understand how he could just disappear. She didn’t think she would ever see Bennett again. That was until her twenty first birthday. In Vegas. And he was definitely not the man she fell in love. He was a cold-blooded killer. A sexy AF one who gave her a night she would never forget and one he says wasn’t memorable at all. 

Six years ago he threw her out like the trash and now he wants to protect her. It’s a complicated story. One I can’t get into without spoiling all the fun twists and oh, fuck moments. I will say I loved it. I love them. It was rollercoaster of emotions from anger to swooning. From laughing to crying. I know it states it’s a standalone but I am so hoping it turns into a series! 

Quotes: 

“Don’t pretend you weren’t doing some fantasizing of your own, Firefly.”

“You’re still just a little girl trying to fit into a world you don’t belong in.”

“Bennett! What have you done to this girl?” 
“Nothing she hasn’t enjoyed.”

*FORBIDDEN TO LOVE 

Forbidden to Love is Siobhan Davis’s latest standalone. You do not need to read Condemned to Love to fall in love with this book and it’s characters. If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely will want to afterwards. I have read all of Siobhan’s books and each one is unique and addictive in their own ways. This one is no different. I don’t want to spoil the plot so I will try to make this quick. The synopsis is perfection, really. 

Natalia always knew she was going to marry a made man. Not for love. For business. And at a young age she was promised to a monster. She hated him and loved another. A man she would not be permitted to marry. Leo was her everything and she was his but they both knew it could never be. They had one night of happiness and years of torture. It was the only way. They had to put walls up and keep their hearts guarded. Their love never wavered but they had to keep their distance. Years of heartbreak, longing, and tension was all they had. It was better than death, right? Maybe…

Omg!! I love Natalia! She is a complete the badass I knew she would be. Leo is swoon-worthy and so f*cking romantic. I just love them so much. I had a feeling about this two and damn…more than expected and that is the norm when it comes to one of my favorite authors ever. I can’t wait for what she has up next for this family. The writing is addictive along with the story. The couple is beautiful in every way. ♥️ 

**I voluntarily reviewed an advance complimentary copy of this book. 


*SCARED TO LOVE 

Scared to Love is the third and final book in the Mazzone Mafia series by Siobhan Davis. Each book can be read as standalone but I HIGHLY recommend reading them in order since they all tie together. I love mafia and I love Siobhan so I am crazy about this series. It’s never boring with this family…

Serena’s life has been hell over the last twelve years. The only light in her life is her children. Her bastard of a husband tried to break her down daily and when he is killed she is relieved. It doesn’t mean she is safe, she is mafia after-all but she feels safer with her sister Sierra and her husband Ben. And him. Alessandro. A man who saved her once. A man who she trusts with her life. A man she could fall for if she wasn’t so broken. She believed he deserved a woman who wasn’t damaged and has a houseful of baggage. It really didn’t matter either way, she wasn’t ready and may never be for a man like him. What she doesn’t see is what he sees, a badass woman who could bring him to his knees and he wouldn’t even fight it…

But before he can prove it they first need to survive the unexpected. 

Holy twists, Batman! I absolutely love the way Siobhan’s mind works. The darkness. The twists. The angst. The chemistry. The connection. And the characters are truly badass in all the ways. I loved watching Serena’s journey and Alesso’s too. They both have scars inside and out. Together, I could feel their deep connection and I loved that Alesso is so swoony and doesn’t care who knows it. It was awesome to catch up with the rest of the family #FamilyGoals. I can’t wait for what Siobhan has planned for us next. 

Quotes: 

“You are so beautiful, Serena. Your legs are the stuff of dreams. Your body the ammunition for all my fantasies.”

“If you’re not my ally, you’re my enemy.”

“Fuck, he’s got it bad.” Leo jokes with Ben. 
“Fuck you. You are both every bit as whipped as I am.”
“Truth,” they say at the same time.

**I voluntarily reviewed this book after received an advanced copy.

Condemned to Love

Her teen crush is now a ruthless killer and powerful mafia heir. Will one life-altering night unite or destroy them?

Bennett Mazzone grew up ignorant of the truth: he is the illegitimate son of the most powerful mafia boss in New York. Until it suited his father to drag him into a world where power, wealth, violence, and cruelty are the only currency.

Celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Sin City should be fun for Sierra Lawson, but events take a deadly turn when she ends up in a private club, surrounded by dangerous men who always get what they want.

And they want her.

Ben can’t believe his ex’s little sister is all grown up, stunningly beautiful, and close to being devoured by some of the most ruthless men he has ever known. The Vegas trip is about strengthening ties, but he won’t allow his associates to ruin her perfection. Although it comes at a high price, saving Sierra is his only choice.

For readers who enjoy age-gap, sister’s ex, second chance, dark mafia romance.

Forbidden to Love

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

For readers who enjoy brother’s best friend, second chance, dark mafia, forbidden romance.

Scared to Love

Serena has felt trapped her entire life, living a lie because it was demanded of her. Years of torture at the hands of her sadistic husband have left her battered and bruised, but not defeated. She needs to stay strong for her children, and she’s determined to reset her future.

The future she has all thanks to Alessandro.

He saved her that fateful night when her husband died, and he continues to save her as she struggles to piece her life back together. Yet the closer they get, the more it terrifies her because no man has ever made her feel like this.

It can’t work.

She’s too broken.

He’s too young.

And she’ll never trust a made man again.

For readers who enjoy friends-to-lovers, second chance, reverse age-gap, forbidden, dark mafia romance.
