Life made him dangerous. Love made him lethal.
 
Killian Marks is a third-generation hitman. After hunting monsters for over twenty years, he lives under no illusions of happily ever afters and fairy tales. Until he meets a man who threatens to disarm him, by giving him hope for a future and showing him there’s more to life than just death.
 
For Nick, living in shadows is second nature. He’s all too familiar with the dark side of humanity and knows how delicate life can be. Each new day is a gift, even though it means doing it alone. But he’ll risk his survival for the one man who awakens something deep within and leaves him yearning for more.
 
Nick wants to solve the mystery behind the dark, brooding man, while Killian craves the life and light emanating from Nick. They soon discover they have more in common than either could have anticipated. With both their lives and hearts at stake, they must confront the ghost from Nick’s past intent on tying up a loose end. Only then will they truly find peace, and discover the shades of life in between.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.

Blog Tour & Review – Anonymous, L.P Dover

May 4, 2018 By

Title: ANONYMOUS
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Release Date: April 23, 2018
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba
Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished.

My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.

I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.

31773

It’s someone from my past, only they won’t to tell me who they are, but that by talking to them, I’ll figure it out. It’s a game I refuse to play. Unfortunately, I’m left with no choice when things begin to take a dangerous turn.

His name is Anonymous and there’s only one thing he wants … ME.

Anonymous is a suspenseful standalone that had kept me on my toes from the very beginning. I have read many of L.P Dover’s book and I must say that this might just be my favorite! It just had a different feel to it. I will try to keep this short so I don’t spoil anything.
Ellie’s life is as close to perfect as it could get. She is married to a romantic alpha who would do anything for her. She owns a bakery in town which makes her passion for baking soar. Her parents are healthy and happy. She has a sister and nieces that she adores. And a best friend who has been with her through thick and thin. Then, one day she receives a text from someone in her past.
She didn’t always have the best of luck when it came to dating. Before Jake, she dated more than one guy who could be sending her these messages. But why now? She has been with Jake for nine years. The good thing is that she has not only one alpha male in her life. She has two. Jake used to be an MMA fighter and would kill anyone who touched his wife. Owen, her best friend is an undercover agent who would gladly hunt down anyone that went after her. And Jake might call her cupcake but she is badass when she has to be. Will the three of them find the fucker before it’s too late?
Like I said, this is one of my favorite books by this kickass author. I crave suspense once in awhile and I always know I will find that in one of her books. I also know that it will be sexy, and smart. I loved that this one had a married couple! We don’t see that much so it made it unique to me.
Overall…it was a crazy, sexy, suspenseful ride!
Quotes:
“I’m ready to eat my dessert now.”
“If you only knew how wrong you are.”
A sexy chuckle escapes his lips. “Oh, I’ll definitely be up for it. The question is . . . can you handle it?”
It’s closing time and Vikki and I are busy cleaning, so we can get home. My phone beeps with an incoming text and I look down at it and growl. “You can’t be serious.” Staring back at me isn’t a text from Jake, but from Anonymous. Even though I deleted and blocked the number ninety days ago, I still recognize it.
Vikki moves closer, her eyes wide. “What’s going on?”
I show her the text.
Anonymous: 31773?
Brows furrowed, she sits back. “What does that mean?” I turn my phone upside down, so she can see that the number spells out my name. Her eyes widen. “Wow, that’s cool you can type your name with numbers.”
“But not so cool when I don’t know who the person is,” I counter. “About three months ago, I got texts from this exact same person. Whoever it is likes to play games. I’m sick of it and I want them to leave me alone.” Taking a deep breath, I type out a reply.
Me: WHO IS THIS?
Anonymous: Why all the yelling?
I roll my eyes. This is just ridiculous.
Me: I like using all caps.
Anonymous: Don’t stop on my account. So, what have you been up to? Been a while since we talked.
Me: Yeah, it’s because I blocked the number.
Anonymous: Why?
Me: BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!
“What is he saying?” Vikki asks. I show her the texts and her eyes widen. “So, you haven’t talked to him since you blocked the number?”
I think back to when I blocked it and if my calculations are correct, the ninety days was up yesterday. “No, but he has perfect timing. My ninety days ran up yesterday. I might need to run to the cell store and see if they can block it permanently.”
My phone beeps again and a sharp pain settles in my gut. I just want whoever it is to leave me alone.
Anonymous: That hurts. You’ve always been friendly toward me.
Me: Obviously not friendly enough, if you can’t tell me who you are. It’s weird and it makes me uncomfortable. You need to leave me the hell alone. Don’t text, call, or try to contact me in any way. I’m happily married, and I want it to stay that way. GOODBYE!
Heart racing, I log into my cell phone account and before I can block the number, another text comes through.
Anonymous: Sorry 31773 but that’s not going to happen.
The blood in my veins runs cold. Hands shaking, I block his number and my phone drops onto the table. Vikki picks it up and reads the final text, her face growing pale.
“I don’t think this person’s going away.”

Title: Torn
Series: Deathstalkers MC
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
Loyalty

 

That’s what it’s all about here.

 

I’d do anything for one of my brothers,
Even go with his old lady to a parent-teacher conference.

But when I see the sweet little number who’s the teacher,
Suddenly, school’s right up my alley.
She’s innocent, naive, and sexy as Hell. 

Damn, I just want in her pants,
And to maybe teach her a thing or two.
And I’m not backing down,
I’ll get to her.

But if she ever finds out the truth about our connection,
It’ll sever the ties and ruin it all.
I’m just going to keep my mouth shut–
 
And all over her.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The loud crash jolts me out of bed and a few seconds later my mother comes running in the room. “Sweetheart you need to hide, there are people in the house.” Her voice is quiet but I can hear the fear in it.My stomach drops as my body freezes.

“Now.” Her voice is a raised whisper. She points to my bedroom closet and I run trying to grab for her hand but she shoo’s me away.

I open the door thanking God for once that my closet is such a disaster. I lay on the floor covering myself with any clothes I can.

Mom quickly rushes over finishing the job for me. “No matter what, don’t make a sound.”

She quietly shuts the door and I can hear my father’s voice downstairs. I can’t make out what he’s saying but he’s yelling at someone. There is a loud bang and my heart stops. That sounded like a gunshot but it couldn’t be, this can’t be happening right now.

I lift on if the shirts just a little bit so I can see through the opening in between my door and the floor. I see mom working her way under my bed but I know I shove so much stuff under there, that there is probably no room.

Heavy footsteps sound as my whole body goes rigid. The boots stop at the edge of my bed and I hear a stomach churning laugh before his hand appears and pulls my mother’s leg out from under the bed.

I can hear her pleading with him to take whatever they want and go. I pray that he listens, and that whatever sound I heard my dad is still okay. He doesn’t say a word though. After a few more seconds another loud bang sounds and my mom falls to the floor. I clamp my hand over my mouth silently sobbing and praying that they don’t find me.

My body is stiff from fear, and I’m scared to move because I don’t want him to find me.

“Take anything that’s not nailed the fuck down but do it quick.” I hear him shout to whoever else must be in the house. He stands in my room for a minute before heading over to my dresser. “There ain’t much in here.” I hear the sound of my music box being picked up. My dad gave it to me on my last birthday. It crashes to the ground and I flinch from the noise. “All fucking junk.” The sound of the boots fades.

I can hear crashing and things being thrown around as the men tear through my family home. My mom’s eyes are closed and I pray to god that she is just passed out. She can’t be gone.

It feels like I sit in that closet for days listening to things banging and breaking.

When the closet door opens, I scream.

🔹 NO LIMIT

I read the whole Gloves Off Series and that was when I was introduced to L.P’s novels so when I found out she had a new series, I had to get my hands on it. I loved all the fighters but I was excited this was going a different route. Suspense gets me hooked in so I knew it would be a great ride.

Jason is a cocky undercover agent that likes to work alone. He is the best and is usually in and out of the case within a few weeks but when he goes to Las Vegas it’s anything but easy. There have been women abducted, tortured and left for dead that are from a high end professional escort service.

Jason has been in Sin City for months and all of his leads have been dead ends. He has gone undercover by gambling and trying to get in with the high-rollers. He might be having luck at the tables but not on the case until he gets a partner. One that he doesn’t want but can’t shake.

Aylee is an undercover FBI agent and has been sent to Vegas to help Jason find the murderer of these women before another one is killed. She is willing to do anything she has to do and the first thing is that she has to pretend to be an escort and also belong to Jason at the time. The problem is that Aylee is attracted to the cocky and flirty Jason. She doesn’t want to be but he is relentless. Will mixing business with pleasure cause harm to their task?

Aylee is one tough f* cookie! She has some trust issues but once he walls comes down around Jason she knows he would do anything to protect her. Jason might be cocky but he is also funny, sweet, sexy and very protective. Aylee and Jason live in different states so after the case is closed they don’t know if or how together. Will they just go their separate ways and go with the Vegas motto…What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?

Overall…this book is suspenseful and sexy and kept me on the edge of my seat to find out who the murder was. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Quotes:

“What’s your name?” I asked, staring at her tight black dress. She took a seat beside me, grinning wide. “Ariel, and yours?” By the look in her seductive blue eyes I knew she was lying. I held out my hand. “I’m Eric. Want to board my ship?”

“She’s a female. Of course she’s smarter than you.”

“Don’t try to play a player, firecracker. Besides, if I was really trying . . . you’d be so caught up, you wouldn’t even know it was happening.”

🔹 ROPED IN 

I read the first novel in the series, No Limit and loved it and it was also where I met Blake Evans. With that being said, Roped In can be read as a standalone but I recommend also reading No Limit because it was just awesome…

Blake Evans is one of the best undercover cops in the Country but was now laying low on his family’s ranch in Wyoming. He is enjoying the cowboy life and one day he gets a call for a job, it’s one that he doesn’t want. He isn’t a babysitter and definitely doesn’t want to be one for a famous country star princess. But, when all the cards are laid out on the table, he takes the job and once he sees Hadley, he knows he is in trouble.

Hadley has a stalker. One that just won’t quit and has stepped it up a notch and now she needs to go into hiding. When she sees who she is staying with, she doesn’t think it’s going to work, he isn’t exactly welcoming.

Blake and Hadley start off rocky. Blake thinks she is nothing but a fake and spoiled rich girl that can’t cut it on the ranch. When she is determined to show him she is not what he expects, he is shocked and then that is when the trouble begins. She wants him. He wants her but he needs to protect her, not fall in love with her. And what if they did have a relationship, only to be separated when she is she ready to go home? Will the stalker even be found before it’s too late?

I loved this story and the characters! Blake is delicious even when being an ass. He is protective, sexy and funny. Hadley is not to be messed with, she is not a quitter and dishes out as much as he does. Together their banter is awesome and their chemistry is hot.

Overall…it was suspenseful, sexy, funny and emotional. I can’t wait for the next book!!

Quotes:

“I don’t want to hear a single thing you have to say. It’s obvious you don’t want me here. You treat your horses better than you treat me.”

His lips pulled back in a smirk. “You’re not writing it about me are you?” “Please.” I snorted. “I don’t see you changing your ways. Besides, players don’t fall in love. It would ruin their game.”

“I didn’t think it was possible, but you made me lose control,” he murmured.

🔹 HIGH-SIDED 

Hide-Sided is the third book in the Armed & Dangerous series. Each book can be read as a standalone since they are all different couples. They do have a connections however. I met Logan Chandler in Roped In and was so excited that he was getting his own book. I knew it was going to be a wild ride and I was so right! This is Logan and Kassidy’s story…

Eight years. It’s been eight years since Logan broke Kassidy’s heart, and now he was back to try to piece it back together again after the loss of one of their best friends. He knew there was something odd going on when Levi asked him to come home to figure out who is targeting Bennett Pro Racing Team. The team that he was a part when he had his accident and it also happens to be Kassidy’s family’s team. He wasn’t going to come home but now that Levi was dead, there wasn’t anything that would keep him away. Even his past regrets. He knew Kassidy wouldn’t be happy to see him but luckily he could still read her like nobody can. Will he be able to get her forgiveness so they can work together to solve Levi’s murder and bring the bastard down? 

Kassidy couldn’t believe Logan is back. He left her and everybody else behind eight years ago and never looked back. That was what she believed anyway. He had his side of the story. She wants to believe him. To trust him again. After Logan tells her that his dream of becoming an FBI agent came true and he is there to help her family, she knows she has to get over their past and work together. It would be so much easier if she hated him but she doesn’t. She wants him more now than ever. Damn him. His career takes him undercover for months at a time and is very dangerous. Does he even want her back or will he leave the minute the case is solved? 

Logan isn’t alone when it comes to the case. He has his partner Micah working undercover with a rival race team. He also has Kassidy and her father on his side. This case is anything but easy. Kassidy’s father had a secret life that has added possible suspects. And this isn’t just about Levi’s murder. Past situations are questioned. But the biggest question is can they solve it before somebody else is hurt or even killed? 

I loved this story because it has love, suspense, and passion all wrapped up in one awesome package. Logan and Kassidy’s loveis felt even during the times of hatred on her part. The passion is never questioned between these two. Everyone sees it even when they didn’t want to. Then there is the suspense. I love reading a book and piecing together a mystery. It hooks me in! I couldn’t read it fast enough. 

Overall…it’s a sexy, suspenseful, and fun read. I can’t wait for the next book. I have a feeling I know who is next up but not goin’ tell. 

Quotes: 

“I see you’re still the overprotective ass you were before.” The sound of his chuckle made my chest ache. I used to love hearing it, long ago.

“We can’t get them back, but we can always make up for what we lost.”

“Laugh it up, asshole,” Micah grumbled.

They met when they were kids.

 

They were friends, lovers, and then husband and wife.

 

They were supposed to be together forever.
He was her Superman.
She was his happiness.

And then he went pro.
And she doubted something that was supposed to be forever.
Mistakes were made in exchange for dreams, and hearts were shattered.
Their forever crumbled right before their eyes.

He went on to play for the Washington Warriors. He ate, breathed, and slept professional hockey. All he had left after her was the ice. He was in magazines, he won a Stanley Cup, and he had a crowd of people screaming his name. He had everything. Didn’t he?

It’s hard to move on from an addiction, and she was addicted. Drunk on love too early on, she never truly moved on from her first love. She faded in and out of life, trying to ignore her need. But bad habits have a way of coming back when you least expect them too.

For years they went separate ways, until her Superman falls from the sky.

He was on a helicopter after a big win when the engine cut out. He knows he’s not making it out alive. Even with the screams of his teammates shouting in the background as they crash toward earth, all he can think of is her. He’ll never get to see her again…

Love is unforgiving dragging her back to heartache. She only wants to help him get better from the accident and move on with her life. She never planned on falling back in love with him. She never planned on falling so hard a second time.

Lovesick and broken, they crash right back into each other.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

Crash Into Us is an epic second chance standalone novel by one of my favorite authors ever, Shana Vanterpool. I have been following her writing career since the very beginning and have loved every word. I just know when I open one of her books that I will be addicted. Thrown into a different world. A poetic, broken, and beautiful world. The synopsis for this book is perfection so I am going to make this fast. Maybe. Probably not.
They fell in like as children. They fell in love as teenagers. They were married at twenty. Divorced at twenty-two. At twenty-six they were reunited after four years of silence, loneliness, and living half lives. He went on to live his dream as an NHL player. She went to living her life as a workaholic, reality tv and wine lover. Two completely different directions but one common factor. They were unhappy. Fours years felt like forever without their happiness.
They were once each other’s everything. While Gavin was falling to his impending death, he saw her. Only her. His Jasmeen. And when he woke up in the hospital, he needed her. She was the only one to bring him back to life. He knew it. He couldn’t go on without his happiness any longer. He got his second chance at life and now not only wants but needs his second chance with her. The only girl he ever loved. The only woman he would ever want. His Jasmeen.
She was addicted. She always has been. Since the day she saw him standing on the porch next door. She was scared to go to him. He broke her heart once. She lived but would she after he was healed and he didn’t need her anymore? She wasn’t sure but her addiction was a strong one. She needed her fix. Even if it killed her.
I absolutely loved this story! Gavin and Jasmeen’s love is strong, consuming, beautiful, and seductive. It was wonderful to watch them grow. To watch their journey during the healing process. Emotionally and physically. Individually and together. The writing is once again so poetic and beautiful. The way Shana explains their emotions just makes me want to cry. Happy and sad tears. Simply amazing. Really.
Overall…it’s one of my favorite books written by Shana. It might actually be my favorite. I can’t say. I can’t pick. It’s too hard. Anyway…if you haven’t read one her books, read it. It’s addicting, heartbreaking, heartwarming, sexy, and fun. It’s everything.
P.S. Ok…I lied. It wasn’t short. If you follow my reviews…you totally knew that was not going to happen. Lol
Quotes:
I was torn three different ways, between common sense, desire, and heartache.
I was an addict with the needle in my vein, and I was so high, the clouds gazed up at me in wonder. 
“I’d kill to feel your love again.”
