Counts of Eight by Brynn Ford blitz with Xpresso Book Tours.

Counts of Eight Brynn Ford (The Four Families, #1) Publication date: May 31st 2020 Genres: Adult, Dark Romance, Romance All of my choices had been stripped from me except for one. Dance or die. Three years ago, I was taken, stolen away, far from the world I knew, far from civilization. I became a slave, forced to serve one of the four families with my talent. I’d been abused, battered, tortured in isolation. My Master brought me men, partners for performance, but they failed to live up to the high standard of dance my Master required. Until one day, he brought me a new man. A blonde-haired, green-eyed, dreamy new man who had no idea what was coming. The men before him had disappeared. I presumed they were dead. I couldn’t afford myself the luxury of hoping they’d made it out alive because that would give me hope that I might someday do the same. Hope was a dangerous thing and this new man’s spirit still thrummed with that electric spark of lightness. I would be the woman

Review: Beautiful Imperfection - Kathryn J. Blain

Review: Beautiful Imperfection - Kathryn J. Blain - September 2013 It wasn't until I started reading that I realized that this book was a Christian fiction novel as due to the content it was quite an edgy read. The book starts with our main character Teddy going out on a blind date with her friends as she has finally been cleared and in remission from her breast cancer after she had a mastectomy. Her friends believe this is what she needs to make herself feel beautiful again. Unfortunately, the night will end in disaster and tragedy as the club they picked ends up being the scene of a mass shooting. Her friend Linda's husband ends up being among the casualties. Teddy and a fellow Marine have been hailed as heroes as they managed to stop the shooter Jack Sprague. It is here that Teddy will meet a blast from her past - Detective Sloan Michaels who was Teddy's first love and the guy whom she never got over after he dumped her without explanation. Sloan has

Review: Power Play - Alley Ciz

Review: Power Play - Book #1 BTU Alumni Series - Alley Ciz - June 2019 This book I have the whole series sitting on my Kindle to read and was excited to start as I love anything normally with a college/university attached to the story. However, even though this book series is called BTU Alumni and features the boys playing college hockey and we have their games and all the characters are studying at BTU. This series didn't feature the schooling side of things which means that I had to push myself to finish this book as I struggled with it a bit as it turned out to be another slow-burn romance for myself and some of the characters annoyed me. The ones that made me love the book and that stole the show in this particular book were two 5-year-olds - Jake's little sister and Jordan's little brother Sean. The book starts with Jake meeting his friend's and next-door neighbors sister JD aka Jordan. Immediately you can see the sparks fly and the chemist

Review: Hindsight - Iris and Roy Johansen

Review: Hindsight - Book #7 Kendra Michaels Series - Iris and Roy Johansen - January 2020 The Kendra Michaels series by Iris and Roy Johansen has been one of my favorites as I love the character Kendra Michaels - well normally. You know-how in a TV series when the main characters finally get together "officially" or at least end up sleeping with one another and then you see a lull in the series as that hidden chemistry disappears and the whole environment feels like it has changed and normally at that point in the series - the TV series you know will be coming to an end. That's how I felt with Hindsight as Kendra still did her amazing deductions and detective skills which I love and I still want to know how she knew the general had red underwear - the question was never answered in the book. Her relationship though with Lynch annoyed me as they had this whole back and forth going on and it was love/hate and lots of angst on Kendra's side. The mur
