Sombra by Leslie McAdam is AVAILABLE NOW!

All other Retailers ➤

Everything in moderation. Including virtue.

I step off the plane in Madrid and meet his warm eyes. His crooked smile. His devastating charm. Worse, he’s courteous. Honorable. Sensuous. Impossibly attractive.

Tavo awakens my desires—my body—without even touching it. I don’t want to be attracted to him. I’ve made my promises. My future has already been determined. I'm wearing a ring.

But I can't control this pull to him. He wants to explore my shadows. I want to get out of the light.

I shouldn't feel this way... Problem is, I can't restrain my heart.

Second page in and my heart rate increased. My body coiled with anticipation. I started to imagine all that he could accomplish with my body. Forbidden desires and secret liaisons… TAVO!

Sombra is decadent. It is desire. It is freedom. It is growth. It is a love story that ensnares its own characters. A tale of desire that amps up the readers own bodily responses. The tension, lust, and needs of the characters come alive in the reader. So much so that you (the reader) may carry on the fantasy in your own head- create your own as you get swept away in the hedonistic edge. 

Sombra is all the above and more. Yes it HOT! But it’s more than incredibly tempting, torturously steamy encounters. It’s passion. It’s understanding. It’s self-discovery. It’s swooning at the feet of a man who makes you his all. (Tavo is mine!) Sombra is embracing both the light and the shadows. 
So you have to fan yourself and have a large supply of … chocolate around for the unavoidable “moments” that trigger an incredible need…for chocolate. What were you thinking?! (It is totally what you were thinking! Panties. Tavo will have you making a mess of yourself without even trying.)

I highly encourage you to experience the temptation that is Tavo and to learn to love all your hidden parts.

Stunning this book is simply stunning, the words flow like poetry and draw you into a beautiful story of true love. 

It was easy to be swept along with the story of Kim and Tavo. The author did an amazing job describing the landscape of Spain and Kim’s reaction to being in a new country. 

Kim has been sheltered all her life and has come to Spain to have her first taste of independence, she’s staying with Tavo’s family who are interesting to say the least. 

I fell in love with Tavo and Kim from the start it’s a story that took me away from my dreary home to stunning Spain with a young couple who have become one of my favourite couples.

This is a book that made me smile a lot whilst reading I needed a book pick me up and this fit the bill. 

Delaney is a quirky fun unashamedly nerdy girl who I loved. Don’t make the mistake of thinking she’s some shrinking violet because nothing could be further from the truth. Dares are where her fun spontaneous side comes out, she just can’t refuse a dare. 

Maverick oh be still my mushy heart get ready to swoon ladies he has the moves to melt even the coldest heart. One of the top football players in college your first impression is a typical jock but to those who really know him he’s a totally different guy but he has secrets. 

What I liked most was the interaction between the two main characters, it alternates between fun to sweet to sexy. Poor Maverick he’s literally wooing Delaney and she has no clue what so ever. I gave him a huge 10/10 for persistence other guys may have given up. 

This was a fun book to read that I would definitely recommend.

* * *

I Dare avoid Maverick Monroe's advances.
I Dare look at him and not think dirty thoughts.
I Dare not smile at the Star Wars references.
I Dare not crush on any football players mentioned in these pages.

I Dare eat glitter donuts.
I Dare love Han Solo #2.
I Dare like Muffin. Just kidding, no one does!

I Dare You to read this book!
I Dare You to not beg for more stories about these characters.
I Dare You

#NewRelease #Reviews LYRIC by Molly McAdams @MollySMcAdams

by Molly McAdams

A stand-alone romance novel in the Rebel series – a Redemption series spin-off


Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers the first captivating, stand-alone novel in her REDEMPTION series spin-off—the REBEL series . . . 

I’m not the kind of girl you forget. 

I wish I was. 

I wish I was normal. 

That I could blend into a crowd. Have a future with the man I’ve loved my entire life… 

Maxon James understands me in a way others can’t. 

For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics. 

But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed. 

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future. 

And it’s come to collect on a blood oath. 

My name’s Elizabeth Borello—Libby for short. Don’t worry about forgetting it… He hasn’t. 

So glad to finally learn Libby's story! As a fan of the Redemption series, I have had a hard time saying goodbye or ignoring that I need so much more. Molly McAdams must have felt the same way because...Lyric.

Lyric is a second chance romance in a way. It's a rock star and a mafia romance book all in one. But it freaking works! It's not cliched or corny. It's serious and real in its intensity. Lyric is hopelessly romantic with darkness encroaching the happy. It's the monster under the bed. 

My eager and ridiculously ecstatic self is jumping up and down because Lyric is only the beginning of this series. It means many more chances to catch up with my crew.

So good to be back with these guys and all the drama that follows them around. 

Libby and Maxon are like star-crossed lovers the timing just never seems to be on their side. Libby has loved him since they were teenagers but Maxon is a rock star who’s never in one place long. They hook up when he’s hone but then go their separate ways. 

Although he knows about her family he really has no idea what being part of a Mafia family entails. For her part Libby likes to live life out the spotlight she may think all the dodgy Mafia deals are over but she’s about to find out his wrong she is. 

Although I loved both the characters and story they infuriated me so much. I was internally screaming at them to just talk to each other but hey it wouldn’t be such a good story without some drama. 

Another great read from one of my favourite authors.

#NewRelease #Review FINDING US by K.S. Marshall @EJBookPromos

Title: Finding Us
Series: Lost & Found Duet #2
Author: K.S. Marshall
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Thriller
Release Date: April 27, 2018

This isn't a love story. This is a story about redemption. She was lost and then she was taken. He found her twice. But will she ever be truly free again? How can you ever be whole after your entire world was ripped apart? How will they both survive the nightmare when they realize it's not over? She loved him and he loved her. But it wasn't that simple.

Triggers (for both part 1 and part 2): Rape, Violence, Assault, Mental/Emotional Abuse, Death, PTSD triggers

When I read book the author was new to me and I am so glad I found this duet.

The continuation of Derrick and Alina’s picks up where we left off with the couple reunited but Jason is still on the loose still plotting to get her back. We learn more about Jason but in my opinion he’s still a loathsome slime ball. We see up close how Alina struggles to deal with everything but I loved her determination even when putting herself in danger. 

This was a great follow up book and I hope some of the secondary characters get a book of their own.

K.S. Marshall is West Coast girl with a heart for Texas, who found herself calling Pittsburgh, PA her home. Having grown up with an avid romance reader for mother, the pull toward the genre was automatic. She enjoys writing complex stories with dark elements that keep her readers on the edge of their seats. Life and love are both complicated and messy and, true to reality, her characters are authentically flawed. 

When she's not reading or writing another plot twist, you can find her having impromptu dance parties, eating her weight in tacos, and doing fitness stuff with her friends. She's absolutely crazy over her children and her fur-babies, Luna and Weston. And that Sean guy is pretty cool too.
