Liquid & Ash by E.M. Abel REVIEW

Liquid & AshLiquid & Ash by E.M. Abel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars





★★★★4 Figting Stars★★★★


"Perhaps that was all life was-a series of moments and memories. Some of them were good,some of them were bad,but all of them collectively defined who we were."


I have to admit that I was nervous starting this book and even though the blurb is what drew me to this, I was still iffy about it. That being said, I got more than just a story. I got a woman's journey through heartbreak and loss and her eventually finding herself. What started as a downward spiral, ultimately saved her and made her the woman she always knew she could be.

Penny is facing the loss of her marriage. Having met her husband Derek in her Senior year of College, she spent the last ten years giving him everything. She gave up her potential career,and put even more distance between her disapproving mother. Everything that she hoped to have was now a distant memory and her marriage will be going along with it.

"Love is liquid. It never dies. It never goes away. Sometimes it just changes direction. And,sometimes,if it's strong enough...." It can make time stand still."

Deciding that it's time to take back her life and make something out of it,she begins her new found freedom. What she wasn't planning on is meeting the sexy bartender/model name Brandon. Determined to not let their attraction get the best of her, she fights her feelings for him. But with a man like Brandon,you could only stay strong for so long and eventually give in to the hot temptation.And I do mean HOT.

"He possessed me,and I knew it was dangerous,but I just didn't care".

Brandon hasn't had an easy childhood. He has scars just like everyone else but his run so much deeper. He's overcome a lot and but the memories are still there just waiting to pop up and give him nightmares. He has a good life now, women whenever he wants, and a fast track modeling career. Meeting Penny was never part of his plan but he saw something in her that made him question everything about his life.

Can two broken people really mend each other?

The beginning of this story was really rough for me because I didn't now where it was going. My thoughts were preoccupied with how how Penny is going to get through her situation ls she going to give in and just let the darkness takeover? Or is she going to fight. I loved her growth in this story,and her determination to be better. She put herself first for once and she didn't give up on anything.
I wanted the epilogue to be longer. It felt waaay too rush for my liking and I didn't like that at all. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this one and I hope the author gives us a novella because I want more. Brandon was the best and can I just say that those two together was "WOWZA!.

Target on Our Backs by J.M. Darhower REVIEW

Target on Our Backs (Monster in His Eyes, #3)Target on Our Backs by J.M. Darhower
My rating: 4 of 5 stars




★★★★4.5 Naz is a Badass MOFO★★★★



This has been one of my all time favorite book series and I'm sad that it's come to an end. It's been one hell of a ride and even though I don't want to come off, I'm happy with the way everything turned out.

"Some of the most dangerous people are only dangerous because of what they mean to others,not because of who they are".

After taking out one of New York's top crime Lord,Naz has a target on his back(literally). Everywhere he goes,there's a trail of bullets and bodies that are starting to pile up. Taking no chances, he does everything in his power to keep his wife Karrissa safe. But how do you do that when the promise you made was to be a better person? No more killing no more destruction. But you know what Naz always says:He's not a good man.

Who's really after him?

Can he keep his promise not to hurt anyone?


Places to go.

People to see.

Blood to spill.

You know how it is...


Even though this story didn't have as much action than the previous books, I still loved it. The way he cared about Karissa,their everyday life,and trying to balance their new marriage along with being hunted was a great dynamic. Naz was still the same badass and I loved that even though he was trying to be better, that part of him was still there.

My only complaint was that I wanted to see more growth from Karrissa. She still seemed a bit naive and in certain situations but I still loved her. I loved Melody as well and the introduction to new characters who I'm praying get their own stories because the are crazy!

If you haven't read this series yet,I really don't know what you're doing with your life. Its sexy,forbidden,dark with the right amount of action.

This is War Baby FRONT ONLY
Goodreads
77003-synopsis
My life had a plan. Until he invaded it and stole it all away. My captor took me and I became a pawn.
His strategy changed and he sent me away to WAR, because money is everything in this world.
In my WAR, though, I found peace.
I couldn’t help but find love where I least expected it, with a man who lived a battle every day of his life
…all inside his head.
But then my captor came back for me.
Yet, this time, battle lines had been drawn and I was protected.
So we thought.
Even though my WAR was raging,
my captor would fight to the death.
The good guys always win, right?
Not always.
All’s fair in love and WAR, right?
Not this time.
Warning:
This is War, Baby is a dark romance. A really dark one. So dark you’re going to wish you had a flashlight to see yourself to the end and someone to hold your hand. Human trafficking, dubious consent, and strong sexual themes that could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. This story is NOT for everyone.
