Blurb:  How long can you keep a secret from the one you love? How can you possibly say the words that will rip both your worlds apart?
Finally able to face her fears of abandonment, Olivia Adler begins to prepare for the next phase of her life. But Alexander Burnham is still holding on to all the secrets about Olivia’s past, trying to protect her. As days go by, Olivia is slowly starting to remember her past and Alexander realizes it’s only a matter of time until she puts all the pieces together and figures out who he is…
And who she is...
But if she remembers, her life could be in even more danger than it already is, and Alexander cannot have that happen. When shadows of Olivia’s past threaten not only her life, but also those around her, will Alexander finally put Olivia’s needs ahead of his? Will she be able to put all the pieces of her past together in order to save her own life and those that she’s close to? Can she figure out who she can trust and who is threatening her very existence? Gorgeous Chaos is the explosive conclusion to T.K. Leigh’s Beautiful Mess series.

Review:  In this thrilling conclusion to the Beautiful Mess series, all will be revealed.  I thoroughly enjoyed this series, although this particular installment dealt with darker themes than the previous two.  Some of the things we find out in this book are long overdue for the series, while other events are shocking, thrilling, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. 
Will Olivia run when she finds out the truth?  What will it do to her when/if she remembers?  Who is on their side?  Will it be too late to save everyone?
While I did enjoy this book, there were some events that were hard to read.  Three quarters of the way through this book, I wasn’t sure she was going to be able to pull it off, but she did!  I was thoroughly surprised with TK Leigh’s writing.  She was a new to me author and I definitely will be checking out her other works.

Blurb: How can you continue living when you’re living a lie? How can you convince your body to stop feeling, your soul to stop caring, and your heart to stop beating?

Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain?

Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart?

Relentlessly Enthralling and Mind Blowing.

Review: In book one we met Olivia and Alexander *see review here*. When push comes to shove, we see what Olivia and Alexander are made of.  Growing up, all that Olivia knows is what others have taught her.  And it’s a tough lesson to learn. 

The natural progression of Olivia and Alexander’s relationship is on the rocks.  Without either of them changing their contribution to the relationship, they are doomed to fail.  Alexander’s need to protect Olivia may hinder their progress.  With the threat looming in the not so distant background, will Alexander finally come clean about what he knows?  Olivia’s lack of experience with relationships may be the wedge that drives these two apart.  Can they find their middle ground?

I will break every single rule to make her mine.

My life has always been defined by the extreme. I don’t balance - I’m an all or nothing kind of man.

Doesn’t sound healthy? It sure as hell isn’t.

Giving in to my cravings has almost ruined my life before and I’m not going to let it happen again.
That’s why I need rules. A strict regulation to keep my head in place.

Once a year. A different girl each time. No exclusivity – no addiction.

Laura is fueling my hunger like no girl ever has before.

But she’s not on the menu.

Taking her is against the rules.

Keeping her could ruin me.

…Or finally appease the monster within me.

Wickedly Delicious and Perfectly Imperfect 

I loved this book! It was hard to put it down, I stayed up all night reading!!! This book was freaking addictive, hot, deliciously wicked, hot and hell did I mention hot? This review will probably just end up a big fangirling mess on how much I loved the raw, dirty, explosive fucking that went on in this book. Pardon my brashness. But yes. There was no love making. Well, maybe there was. But it didn't start out that way. Ryan Hawkins doesn't do love. He fucks, he gives into his dark cravings once a year. (Again. Sorry!!!) And he fucks hard. And good. And Laura can't get enough!! (Really who could blame her though One Indecent Proposal Turns Out To Be OH So Much More)Because I think I would’ve succumbed to the ways of Ryan myself. No shame. He is all alpha. Dominating. Powerful. Controlling. Possessive. And I know these have been done before. BUT! I just can't explain it. There's just something about him that just COMPLETELY did it for me!!! Cause when he says (“Yes, doll. I will fuck you until you don’t know your own name, and the fact that I’m the first one to ever do it won’t change my plans whatsoever,” he whispers, his piercing eyes blazing dark with lust. “You agreed to this. You wanted this. But don’t expect me to be gentle with you.”) Good lord!!!!! I don't think I've ever used the term "ovaries exploded" but yeah. That's pretty much what happened. He is very vulgar and blunt. And the dirty talkin. Ok. Now that I probably sound like a complete sex-crazed hornball.

Let's get to the story. Cause there's a really great story too!!! Double win!!!! 

Ryan has a dark past and urges. He controls them by using an agency (Violent Delights) to send him a new woman each year to spend one night with him. He has rules set for himself and this annual retreat allows Ryan to explore his sexual dominant side without any major complications. That time of year is quickly approaching and this time Ryan wants to pick the leggy brunette beauty, Laura at his own Charity Event. He sees something special in her and has to have her. He doesn't expect Laura to unintentionally throw a wrench into his well laid plans.

Laura two years ago dropped out of college to take care of her dying mother. Now, she's waitressing to pay off her debts and to save enough money to move away for a fresh start with her best friend Layla. What Laura doesn't count on is meeting Ryan, and how the mysterious dominant billionaire is about to change her life. 

***Warning ~ This dark romance gives a glimpse at the Master/Slave relationship in the S&M part of the BDSM world. The storyline is intense with the elements of obsession and captivity.***

She agreed to play. She agreed to be mine. 
I won't let her change the rules of the game.

Violence has always been part of my life. I was angry as a child, underchallenged and neglected, with no outlet for my dangerous rage.

Years have passed, and I’m no longer a victim of my own aggression.

I’m in control now.

A control that many seek to surrender.
Just like her.
My Pet.
The beautiful blonde who agreed to submit to my will.

She agreed to be kidnapped and locked away until our contract is over.

She’s here to play a role.

But her defiance seems too real, her terror too honest. Watching her struggle is bone-chilling.

She’s getting to me like no one ever has before, seizing a heart that cannot love.

Or so I thought...

**VIOLENT DELIGHTS is a Dark Romance with themes of kidnapping, captivity & steamy BDSM scenes. Intended for audiences 18+ & not for the faint-hearted. Contains situations some readers might find objectionable.
NO cheating, NO cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. **


A Little Dark, A Little Twisted, Completely Enthralling

Violent Delights, a story that will test your limits. This book focuses on darker elements that will have you second guessing your sanity. It's absolutely crazy how amazing this book is. Just when you think it'll go one way, it goes the other. Just how much can you trust the hottie who just took you off the street? Someone who drives you crazy with need. But when that someone turns out to be someone else, who are you if you end up falling for them? To me Violent Delights was perfectly written and unique. I loved the storyline and the sexual tension between our two main characters is off the charts.
The best thing about Violent Delights is that the motivations of each character are different and unexpected. The only person without any valid motivations or anything else is our heroine (besides down on her luck) she just happened to be at the wrong place (but maybe at the right time rather than wrong time). Joseph with his shadowy secrets, sinister kidnapping (even if it was the wrong female) of our heroine, and dominant disciplining of her. He became my overall focus without having to have any physical descriptions or details (that was the bonus), just actions, and dialogue alone kept him intriguing.
There's a creative plot twist that made me feel as if I were watching a thriller with a few kinky sex scenes, and those were pretty steamy without being overdone. If I had any issue with this novel, I would say… Oh wait I had NO Issues with this book. Linnea May PLEASE Bring on the Next Dark Billionaire Romance. You Have a NEW Fan
Definitely a must read!

Review The Dom Vs. The Virgin by Alice Ward

Title: The Dom Vs. The Virgin
Author: Alice Ward
Series: The Beasts of Baseball (Book 5)
Genre: Sports Romance, Humor
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: May 12 2017
Source: Hidden Gems ARC Service
Rating: 4.5 Stars
I'm a Dom. She's a Virgin. But not for long.

Living life as a recluse, I’ve quietly built my wealth under the radar of public attention. Then I followed my dream and created the New York Beasts, a bunch of MLB misfits who just won the f’ing World Series. I’m not under the radar now. In fact, everyone wants a piece of me.

How the hell I allowed myself to be part of a reality show, I’ll never know. But here I am, facing nine single women who see only two things — fresh man meat and big dollar signs.

Except her.

Beautiful, young, innocent Emery Rose didn’t plan on being here either. She’s flown under the radar too. But that won’t stop me from hunting her. Or from her hunting me.

She doesn’t know what she’s in for. Yeah, I might be the Beasts' Daddy, but the real beast is me.


Dirty, Delicious, and just the right amount of Sass

This was my first read by Alice Ward and I guarantee it will not be my last. The heart melting sweet and panty dissolving hotness were on point and with a good dose of sass added into the mix I couldn’t put this one down! The characters were all on point even downF to the snobby and vindictiveness from some of the secondary characters.  
"Rhett Hamilton, swoon, that man is sex on a stick!"
"Rhett and Emery’s Story kept me burning from page to page. The chemistry between the two of them was undeniable and hot"
I loved this story plot as well it was fresh and fun. So many books lately all revolve around the same thing and this one just stood out amongst the sea of so many titles and books that are so alike. It was fresh reading a title that was not similar to so many others.
I enjoyed this title so much I went back and purchased all other titles in The Beasts of Baseball Series.

Review Surrender by Kitty Thomas

Title: Surrender

Series: Interconnected Standalone with Guilty Pleasures & Broken Dolls
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance with BDSM Elements
Publisher: Burlesque Press
Release Date: March 27 2017
Formats: eBook/Print

Rating: 5 Stars

Julie wants Gabe Griffin like fish want water, but what she wants is sweet domestic bliss and a white picket fence. What Gabe wants is to put a collar around Julie’s throat and train her in the finer points of being his slave.

At first too innocent, then too broken, can Julie ever surrender to the man intent on claiming her?



Wow, what a fantastic book!  Loved, Loved it! Emotional, heartbreaking, pull you into the story writing. That is just some of the words that come to mind when trying to write this review. Surrender is achingly beautiful in its intensity but at the same time also very steamy and arousing. If you are on the lookout for a read that provides a great, intense story combined with enticing as well as fierce sex scenes then look no further. You have found it. This book had me so high on my emotions that I had to take a few days to write the review.
