Book: Without Shame
Series: Hounds of Babylon
Authors:Victoria L. James and L.J. Stock

***LIVE NOW***

Synopsis


Drew Tucker is gone.

The man Ayda Hanagan loves has disappeared into the darkness once again, his mind buried in the torture of grief, his body cold and hard, and his heart completely switched off. Nothing matters to him anymore. Not his brothers, his club, and definitely not the woman he vowed to spend the rest of his life worshipping. The only thing he craves now is blood.

Stuck in a one-way love affair, Ayda knows she only has so much time left to bring him back, and she’s willing to do anything she can to show Drew just how much he means to her, even if that means hurting him the way he’s hurt her.

The battles have been fought, and now the war is on the horizon.

With fires being started all around them, the heart of Babylon is in trouble. The enemies are circling more than ever, and The Hounds need their leader to return so they can fight together without shame.

Before the whole damn place is burned to the ground.

I basically binged read this series within a week. I have read the 1st book some time ago but then life happened and interrupted my reading time. But now I have restarted and I simply couldn’t stop. Thank God my husband was doing a night shift that week otherwise we would have words as he would tell me off that I am reading till late. Again #sorrynotsorry
This series. Omg. Where to even begin and not give spoilers. This series is one of them that when your friend ask you to recommend a good MC book to them, you simply shove it down their throat to ensure they are reading it.
I love how the characters are simply real. You can totally imagine them being exactly how they were described. And you just have to love them. You love the good. The bad. Because simply there is no other way around it.
The writing is beautiful. With perfect pace and build up. And the feels? Oh man. The feels are everywhere in here. I want my own Drew *sighs deeply*.
Well simply go and read it. Now. Thank me and authors for creating this masterpiece later.
You are welcome.

Authors’ Bios


Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-old’s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.

Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.

Review:

Oh wow! I did not expect so much action in this book. Brilliant read.

This is a gripping story. One that will leave you scared and make you feel like you are being followed. I was so terrified I had problems with going to kitchen during the night. Amazing. Simply amazing. I cannot wait for more from this author. What an astonishing debut novel from Lee Cockburn.

The characters are believable. I think at point too much. Being inside their heads helps you understand them. Amazing.

Total page turner.

  • This story is simply beautifully heart wrenching. It breaks you. And then puts you back again. Just to break you again.
  • Ms Preston has described all the feels perfectly. Her characters were well developed and I connected with them so much that I cried with them. For them. Recently I rarely have books that move me so much. But this? This spoke to my heart. To all the feels I have.
  • Well done Ms Preston. A story that I will revisit. Even though it makes me go through mountains of tissues.
  • Thank you for sharing this story with us.

    REVIEW

    What can I say? I love Hallie and Nate. Mostly Nate. But hey. Who can blame me for loving a perfect guy who is a bit bad too?

    Ms. Love comes back with an amazing story. Story of love. Friendship. Forgiveness. And also a bit of rivalry. And I like it. I like that we don’t have that much drama like in book 1 but there is enough to keep you turning the pages without breaks (yes toilet break was done with my kindle lol). I simply couldn’t stop reading it.

    Hallie and Nate have matured since they last saw each other. They both changed due to events that caused them to break. Hallie knows what she wants and finally I showing her true self. And Nate? Nate is still hot. Still drool worth but he also changed. He is not going through girls just to score. Ha! After Hallie all he does is workout. They both try to convince each other and themselves l, and everyone around them that between them it’s over. But how can it be over when you feel all the feels just on a mere mention of her/his name?

    Amazing read. I love it mostly because we get to know Nate really well. His POV are deep and thoughtful. Show us, the readers, that not everything is as perfect as you might think.

    One of the best reads for 2018.

    Thank you for giving us Hallie and Nate.

    5 amazing stars.

    About the Author

    I’m a little neurotic; I function on a tiny amount of sleep, and a huge amount of caffeine. I love old movies, green skittles, and have a slightly strange, and irrational fear of stormy weather.

     

    When I’m not locked away scribbling down the crazy stories that occupy my mind, I can be found at home in East Yorkshire with my husband and two children.

     

    I’m unashamedly fickle and can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a good book, new shoes, or a bottle of bubbles.

     

    Oh, and did I mention I also love to write?

    REVIEW:

    There is not enough words to describe how I felt reading this book. In any language. It simply took my breath away. Ms Brooks has a way with her words that always leaves me speechless. And this book was no different. No. It was so much more. 


    In here we meet Ellis and Harlow. Best friends. Best couple. Best everything. Nothing could keep them apart. Nothing and no one. 


    Both of them are so hard not to love. You simply can’t hate them. It’s impossible. 


    I knew Elle will not create a normal drama where there is a bad breakup because of misunderstanding or because they are off to college. No. She has to take your heart squish it slowly and then put into a mincer. When your heart is nothing but pieces, she is slowly picking all the pieces and expertly mending them together.  


    There is not enough stars to rate this book. It’s simply a masterpiece that lands as first on my reading list for this year. It will be hard to move it from its spot. 


    5 beautiful stars. 


    Thank you for writing it. Thank you for giving us Harlow and Ellis.

    ARC review: Gravity by A. B. Bloom

    ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. 
    This story is so refreshing. So beautiful so different. It left me speechless and content at the end. I was like: yes. That was IT. 
    The story is about love, stars and not knowing how long you have left to live. The main character, Bronte, was always fragile and no one could figure out what is wrong with her. Until she met Nick. Caring, handsome and so not for her. She learnt what she was and because of that they tried, fought even to stay apart from each other. But as fate is a tricky thing – it always pushed them back together. 
    The buildup of their relationship and connection was beautifully done by Ms Bloom. I loved it. 
    The book totally deserves 5 heavenly stars.

    Title: Evo
    Series: Divine Hunter World #1 / Divine Hunter #2.5
    Author: L.J. Sealey
    Genre: Paranormal Romance
    Released: October 6th 2015
    * Can be read as a complete standalone
    Blurb
    The hunter just became the hunted. . .
    Evan O’Reilly was used to fighting demons. A bounty hunter for the underworld, he was always precise. Efficient. Ruthless. But that was before he had to battle with his own.
    Being a powerful deity had its advantages, and Alethia, goddess of wind and shadows, was thankful she could watch over her friend completely undetected. That was, until his carelessness began to garner the wrong kind of attention, leaving her no choice but to step in.
    Now, Evo is being hunted by his own kind, closely followed by a revenge-hungry demon. He is on the run, and Alethia is running with him. While passion ignites, and tension threatens to tear them apart, they discover that there is something far more sinister after Evo’s soul. As Alethia fights for him, she is forced to face an agonizing truth: to save him, she may have to lose him forever.

    A story about new love and sacrifice, Evo is the first book in the Divine Hunter World series of books that focus on the much loved characters from the Divine Hunter series.

    *Contains adult situations. Recommended for readers 17+*

     My thoughts:

    I have received an ARC of this amazing book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I started reading the book but then I realised that I have missed some story from the previous 2 books I have stopped and read the first 2 books, which by the way were also AMAZING. Even though you can easily follow the story without reading the first books, I think that you get a better insight into Evo and his personality. And besides they are awesome, so why not read them also?

    I like Evo. I like him a lot. He is cocky, snarky and have that bad boy vibe but at the same time he is kind and loyal. During book 1 he was involved in Micheal fight and during this fight he is being imprisoned, and then rescued by Michael. But after his return he was different. Dark. Full of something that was growing inside of him.

    L.J. did an amazing job with creating the story, the emotions and descriptions of the world. The characters are really well developed and I enjoyed them all.

    5 heavenly stars from me ❤

    About The Author

    L.J. Sealey was born and raised in a little Welsh town by the sea. It rains a lot, so she often has a great excuse to sit at her writing desk and while away the hours at her laptop.
    She still lives in N.Wales and when she’s not travelling around the country working with her husband – who is a professional singer – or singing backup vocals herself, she likes to read and watch her favourite TV shows which normally includes plenty of CSI, The Vampire Diaries and endless amounts of sitcoms.
    Being addicted to reading about vampires, demons, shifters and angels, she has always had a thing for all things paranormal and is a big sucker for impossible love stories. So it was inevitable that when she started writing herself she would mix the two together.
    L.J. Sealey is the author of the paranormal romance series Divine Hunter.

    ARC Review: Blue Horizons by Kathryn Andrews

    Title: Blue Horizons

    Author: Kathryn Andrews

    Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

    Published: October 19, 2015

    Will Ashton

    Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.

    At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.

    As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.

    Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.

    Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.

    Ava Layne

    They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.

    Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.

    OVER TEN YEARS ago my husband and I were driving from Chicago to Tampa and somewhere in Kentucky I remember seeing a billboard that was all black with five white words, “I do, therefore I am!” I’m certain that it was a Nike ad, but for me I found this to be completely profound.

    Take running for example. Most will say that a runner is someone who runs five days a week and runs under a ten minute mile pace. Well, I can tell you that I never run five days a week and on my best days my pace is an eleven minute mile. I have run quite a few half marathons and one full marathon. No matter what anyone says . . . I run, therefore I am a runner.

    I’ve taken this same thought and applied it to so many areas of my life: cooking, gardening, quilting, and yes . . . writing.

    I may not be culinary trained, but I love to cook and my family and friends loves to eat my food. I cook, therefore I am a chef!

    My thumb is not black. I love to grow herbs, tomatoes, roses, and lavender. I garden, therefore I am a gardener!

    I love beautiful fabrics and I can follow a pattern. My triangles may not line up perfectly . . . but who cares, my quilts are still beautiful when they are finished. I quilt, therefore I am a quilter.

    I have been writing my entire life. It is my husband who finally said, “Who cares if people like your books or not? If you enjoy writing them and you love your stories…then write them.” He has always been my biggest fan and he was right. Being a writer has always been my dream and what I said I wanted to be when I grew up.

    So, I’ve told you who I am and what I love to do . . . now I’m going to tell you the why.

    I have two boys that are three years a part. My husband and I want to instill in them adventure, courage, and passion. We don’t expect them to be perfect at things, we just want them to try and do. It’s not about winning the race; it’s about showing up in the first place. We don’t want them to be discouraged by society stereotypes, we want them to embrace who they are and what they love. After all, we only get one life.

    In the end, they won’t care how many books I actually sell . . . all that matters to them is that I said I was going to do it, I did it, and I have loved every minute of it.

    Find something that you love and tell yourself, “I do, therefore I am.”

    My Thoughts:

    Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    It was my first book by Kathryn. And I’m ashamed to admit that. I own all of her books but there is always something that is more important. But after reading this book, I couldn’t wait any longer and started to read her previous books. I want to kick myself that I have always pushed them away. But anyway… let’s concentrate on Blue Horizons.

    In here we meet Will Ashton. A successful musician who appears to have everything. Money, fame and life he has chosen 10 years ago. But standing on the scene during he concert his thoughts are not full of pride and achievement. There is no adrenaline. No rush he used to feel while performing. There is only feeling of being lost. The only thing he can think of is to run away from there. Far away. Somewhere where no one will be able to find him and somewhere where he will be able to think. To find his path again. After he walks away after the concert we meet him again few months later in the only place he is able to find piece. Among the mountains, on the lake where he used to spend his time with his grandfather. What he did not expect was to find something that was missing. Or rather someone. He did not expect to meet Ava and simply fell for her. It was not in his plans, but once he met her and got to know her, he realized that she was the missing piece to make him happy.

    Avery Layne is a troubled young woman. She has lived through something that no one should have. And this traumatic day has damaged and scarred her beyond anyone imaginations. Now she a timid, closed and afraid of simple touch. When I read her memory flashes, I cried, even though it’s not an ugly crier. Not at all. But I felt her pain, fear and her drive to be free from this haunting memories. And she found her hope in Ash. A mysterious guy who she met during her weekend at her friend’s parents house.

    Kathryn has touched a really difficult topic here and what I liked the most is the fact that she didn’t concentrate only on this. On ho Ava was damaged. Hurt. Scared. But on how Will wanted to help her even though he didn’t know what has happened to her and what to do. He simply took his own personal experience and tried to help her as once he was helped by his foster parents.

    Kathryn’s writing is flawless. She has amazing style that pulls you straight away. I have fallen in love with Will instantly. And I have fallen in love with Clay. His quiet best friend. Even though he is not appearing in the book as often as I would like, I loved him for his kindness and understanding he gave to Will, when he needed it.

    Beautiful story that will make you laugh, cry and sigh every so often.

    Killshot by author Aria Michaels

    When 17 year old Liv Larson and her brother are sent to separate foster homes, she dedicates her every breath to getting him back. After months of solitude and anti-social behavior, her best friend Riley ropes her into a Rooftop Solar Flare Party. Despite the fascinating lights in the sky, Liv finds herself drawn, instead, to Zander- the boy with the crooked smile.

    For a few hours, Liv’s troubles finally feel a bit less overwhelming—that is until what should have been a small flare erupts into a massive solar storm forcing them all to seek shelter in the school’s basement. Cut off from the rest of the world and with no signs of rescue, fear and paranoia set in and battle lines are drawn, dividing their ranks. What is left the group must embark on a perilous journey to save one of their own and find their families…but, something sinister awaits them in the shadows and it’s undeniably connected to Liv.

    Can Liv keep her promise to reunite with her brother? What are she and her friends willing to do to survive? Will their bravery and determination be enough to save them all from a rogue government, a terrifying virus, and the things that go bump in the night…Or was Icarus, indeed, The Killshot?

    My review:

    Once I started the book I wasn’t able to put it down. I was actually really mad at myself that I have not just started it earlier during the day but before the bed time. And I was mad at myself cause I had to stop and go to sleep. But next day I woke up and read it on my way to work, on my lunch, short breaks, on my way home, during cooking and before bed. At 45% I was really mad at myself that I haven’t read it earlier. But anyway…the book…

    The first scene broke my heart. I hate when siblings are separated and I cried. Hard. I had to stop reading and make myself cup of tea. After the story got more and more interesting. I’m not saying that it was less emotional. Far from it. Liv is trying her hardest to keep her promise she gave to her little brother. And she is not aware that her final words: even if the sky is falling will come true.

    The adventures she will face with her friends are amazing and makes you have so many adrenaline rushes that you will think you are part of them and you are facing the same danger they do.

    I really enjoyed this story and I will read the next parts as I cannot wait to see what will happen next!

    5 heavenly kickass stars!

    My thoughts:

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    I have enjoyed most of the stories. They are sexy and steamy. All and each one of them is written perfectly and pull the reader straight away into the story line. Sensual, seductive and extremely descriptive. I have enjoyed most of them, even though some are not my normal books I would pick by myself.

    I’m not going to review all of the stories separately. I don’t want to pull the full anthology apart and I prefer treating it as a one hot book with different POVs.

    Before I have received this compilation I have not read any books by the authors here. And to be honest I have not even heard of them, but since I have read it I have picked up some of the authors and downloaded their books to see what they are capable off with a full length story.

    The anthology is good if you are looking for few different sexy stories.

    4 stars from me as some of the stories were simply not for me.
