This is the first short book in the Delightful series and it was free,  but that still didn’t keep it from boring me to sleep. ‘Nuff said!

Torture To Her Soul (Monster In His Eyes #2) by J.M. Darhower

Book Description:

Published: September 29, 2014

Don’t say it unless you mean it…

It’s a simple concept, one I’ve said time and again, but something people don’t seem to comprehend. You should choose every syllable carefully, because you never know when somebody will hold you to your word.

Somebody like me.

I’m not a good man. I’m not. I know. I have enough darkness inside of me to rid the world of every stitch of light. But there’s one I could never harm, one light I couldn’t bring myself to snuff out.

Karissa.

She thinks I’m a monster, and maybe I am. I taunt her with my touch, get a thrill out of torturing her soul. But I’m not the only one. The world is full of monsters, and I’m not the most dangerous one out there.

Not even close…

God help me, I love her.

I do.

And God help anyone who tries to take her from me.

Review –

I forgot to mention that in the previous book, Monster In His Eyes, Naz asks Karissa to marry him and she says yes, that is, of course, before she finds out how he has used her.

In Naz’s life it makes no sense for him to want her, even though he swore to wipe out the Rita family and Ray (a man who has been a father to him) demands her death, Naz can’t let her go. With that Karissa doesn’t make things easy for him. She’s angry, resentful of all the lies and secrets, and desperate to save her mother from Naz’s vengeance. But Karissa can’t deny that she wants to save Naz too. They love each other, it’s undeniable, but can that love ever be enough to overcome the darkness and hurt?. Naz has been full of rage and seeking revenge for so long, and his only solace from that ugliness comes from the least likely source, Karissa. So, he tries for her, and even though Naz knows Karissa would be better off without him, he’ll try his damndest to keep her.

 Karissa doesn’t give into Naz right away. She doesn’t hide her fury or bitterness. It’s an intense combination of rage and lust that eventually explodes in a wickedly HOT way:

“I’m going to f**k it all out of you, every bit of it.”
I pull out and thrust right back in, eliciting another cry.
“I’m going to f**k you until you beg me to stop.”
Another thrust. Another cry.
“And then I’m still not going to stop, not until you say the word to make me.”
I pull back to look at her as I thrust again, deeper than before. Her breath hitches.
“I’m not going to stop until you say it…until you mean it.”
She stares at me, stubbornly, defiantly…silently. It’s a battle of wills, one she’ll never win. I’ll f**k  her until my heart gives out.”

There is so my angst between Naz and Karissa in this book that at times I had to just put it down and walk away for a while. The writing is done so well that I could feel the sexual tension between them when she truly hated him(he kills her father and later her mother) and is in the same house but ignores him, not even speaking to him.

Finally she decided to leave him and he tell her that if she goes she CAN NOT EVER come back so to be sure leaving is wants she wants and she goes.

Very near the end Ray discovers that Naz has killed Brandy and he comes to kill him and but finds Karissa at home (she came back because she loved Naz and couldn’t stand being away from him) and he shots her and she almost dies.

After she recovers Naz proposes again with his mother’s ring and they get married in Vegas with strangers as their witnesses. Nah tells her he is out of the family and will need to find a job.   END.

I haven’t started the next book yet but I’m sure the family will be coming after them, because NO ONE LEAVES  THE FAMILY.

Thrash (Bayonet Scars #2) by J.C. Emery

Book Description:

Published: January 9, 2014

Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.

As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn’t have, and then almost lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.

The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

Love is never more precious than when it’s new.

Review –

Each one of the books in the Bayonet Scars series could be considered a stand alone but they also finish off the previous one, if that makes sense.

In Thrash Ryan and Alex from Ride  get their HEA but the book primarily deals with Nicole (Nic) and Duke.

Nic and Duke have a past together and he hurt her badly so that’s why she has kept her distance but now she can’t and she gives in to her need and desire for him.  Likewise, Duke knows he has hurt Nic and knows he probably will again but that doesn’t stop him from claiming her as his own, no matter the cost.

A great steamy read with sizzling sex scenes.

Dead Ice (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #24) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Book Description:

Published: June 9, 2015

Anita Blake has the highest kill count of any vampire executioner in the country. She’s a U.S. Marshal who can raise zombies with the best of them. But ever since she and master vampire Jean-Claude went public with their engagement, all she is to anyone and everyone is Jean-Claude’s fiancée.

It’s wreaking havoc with her reputation as a hard ass—to some extent. Luckily, in professional circles, she’s still the go-to expert for zombie issues. And right now, the FBI is having one hell of a zombie issue.

Someone is producing zombie porn. Anita has seen her share of freaky undead fetishes, so this shouldn’t bother her. But the women being victimized aren’t just mindless, rotting corpses. Their souls are trapped behind their eyes, signaling voodoo of the blackest kind.

It’s the sort of case that can leave a mark on a person. And Anita’s own soul may not survive unscathed . . .

Review –

From what I  can tell, some readers are fed up with the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series because the plots are weak and it’s all about the sex. Well, of course it is, that is what makes  a good easy-reading, no thinking necessary story involving the famous US Marshal, vampire hunter and necromancer. 

As with most of the books, this one had multiple story lines going but only one main plot and YES there was sex but not much and it was well within the context of the story. 

I really like the character of tiny but feisty Anita Blake and now that she’s engaged to Jean-Claude, the centuries old vampire and  the King of the City of St. Louis,  the next book should get really interesting .

I can’t wait!

With You (Tear Asunder #0.5) by Nashoda Rose

Book Description:

Published: January 11, 2014

Sculpt is an illegal fighter.

He’s also the lead singer of a local rock band.

No one knows his real name.

And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine.

In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule—no complaining or he’d walk. I didn’t think it would be a problem. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn’t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him.

I tried to ignore it.

I failed of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting completely immune to what he was doing to my body—it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule—I complained.

Then he kissed me.

Author’s Note: This novella is Sculpt and Emily’s beginning and how they met. It is an extra and not required to be read before “Torn from You”. Their story and what happens to them is the novel “Torn from You”. 

Review –

I don’t normally read erotic literature (okay, I did read the Fifty Shades of Gray series, but didn’t) but this one was free and sounded promising.

It was everything anyone could want in this type book, sexual tension, chemistry between characters,a real plot,and explicit sex and violence. It is not for the faint of heart. I knew when I reached the end that I would HAVE to read the next installment. I was hooked.
