The second book in the series, but you could read it as a standalone. It features a new cast and setting, but a few characters from the previous book pop up again.

What I loved about this book is that we a great insight in the resistance and how they operated. So many things are happening,

Something i also loved was seeing how the characters develops and grow with each new experience. Marcel starts out as basically a still wet behind the ears student, but really grows in his role so does his confidence. And i have to say I did feel for Blanche. And i was saying please let her be okay for the last part of the book.

I look forward to reading the conclusion of this story

Luke Evans is a confident, commanding man who happens to really like a bossy woman in the bedroom, so it's no surprise when he's immediately drawn to Stronghold's bossiest domme, Olivia Williams. Unfortunately for him, while he's just Olivia's type in a lot of ways, she's not happy that he's in a position of professional power over her, a decision she was not privy to when it was made. But Luke's just as much a go-getter as Olivia, and he's perfectly happy to join the class of new submissives in order to show her just how far he's willing to go.

There aren’t that many F/m books out there or I just haven’t read many of them. I was looking forward to reading Olivia’s story, I liked her from the beginning.

There is a unique dynamic in these relationships. There is a different feel to it, while the main and important part of all relationships like trust, respect and love are the same.

I loved how the books showed their emotions and their struggles. Not just Luke who is struggling with his feelings of submission, but also Olivia about what she want and if things will works out. Yes Dommes have doubts too.

And it was also great to see the love and support of their friends and catching up with the

She’s the one girl this player can’t have. A human. I’m dying to claim the redhead who lights up the club every Saturday night. I want to pull her into the storeroom and make her scream, but it wouldn’t be right. She’s too pure. Too fresh. Too passionate. Too human. When she learns my secret, my alpha orders me to wipe her memories. But I won’t do it. Still, I’m not mate material - I can’t mark her and bring her into the pack. What in the hell am I going to do with her?

Book 6 in the bad Boy Alpha series and his one features Jared.

This book is a bit different then the other books in the series. Less action, but more of a emotional romance story. Jared is taken by Angelina, but doesn’t feel he is good enough for her. Angelina has been the acting like the perfect daughter, doing what her parents want her to do, but she isn’t happy.

Jared and Angelina don’t match on paper, but they connect in real life. Trevor supports Angelina’s dreams and makes sure they come true. While Angelina helps him see that he is not only good enough, but he is worthy and matters. And there is a place for him.

It is actually sweet, but with a healthy dose of sexy.

This is narrated by a duo, so all the male characters are told by Eric and Kylie does all the female. It makes the story feel more natural.

This was actually my first book I read by Ellie Midwood and it blew me away.

I was reading this book on a warm sunny Sunday afternoon with goosebumps all over my body. It is a very intense, realistic and harrowing tale of two young people forever changed by WWII. It easy to forget that most of the soldiers were just kids going to war with hope and dreams until the gruesome reality hit. It is shows the horrors and the toll it takes on the soul, but there is also hope and kindness in the most unexpected places.

An amazing read.

 What is going through the mind of a war criminal, tried by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg? Regret for his atrocious actions? Frantic desire to defend himself to the end? Desperate longing to be forgiven by his former enemies or craving of human kindness, even though he knows that he doesn’t deserve any… And the strongest of all, the fear to never again see the one, who he risked everything for, the only woman that he still continues to live for.

This is a book that what keep you thinking and asking yourself questions. I kept thinking that humanity hasn’t learnt anything from WWII. At one point one of the prisoners tells the prison guards that something like this can also happen in the US. It is an eerie but right speech.

This book tries the answers the question of how a normal guy became a high ranking member of the SS. Is there a specific moment where everything changes or was it just pure luck and what happens when you get in to deep?. The book switches from the Nuremberg trials to Ernst’s his childhood to his climb up the ladder. Does he regret his choices?

It is a fascinated story.

The first book in a new series by Renee Rose and it takes place in Vegas. It is not a very dark book, i would say it is grey in a few scenes at most.

It is the story of Sondra and Nico. Nico moved to Vegas to try and run his business as clean as possible. Sondra is working in the hotel after a string of bad luck.

There is in instant connection between them although Nico and his connection scares Sondra too. Nico is torn between his love and his duties to the family. he is changing because of Sondra.

Sondra also has conflicted emotions about Nico. He can be scary and protective and giving at the same time. She is faced with hard choices.

It is fast paced, well written book with lots of sexy scenes.

The fifth book in the series and it features Sam. We learn more about his past and all the horrible things that happened to him until he got saved by Jackson. Poor Sam, he doesn’t feel he is good enough, but his Wolf feels different when he meets Layne.

I loved it when the Wolf know a lot faster what is right and what he should do before the human part does. Layne was so strong and really believed she was doing the right thing. And she stood up for what she believed, including a stubborn Wolf

Not even one of her own species who says he knows her father - the father she doesn’t remember. No, she isn’t about to trust Tomis, the Zandian warrior who rescues her from the Finn, especially after he sets her body on fire with a series of humiliating punishments. But it’s breeding season on Zandia, and the crystals activate her hormones, making her desperate for satisfaction.

The 6th book in this series. This features the first Zandian female Thalie and Thomis.

Thalia is feisty and not to happy she is being considered a breeder for the race, but Thomis awakings feelings in her that she never knew. Thomis knows Thalia isn’t for him, but his feeling are getting stronger by the day. They have great chemistry together and sparks fly everytime they are together. Their banter made me laugh.

I loved the fact that this story takes place on Zandian, she you get a bit more insight into the homeplanet.
