by Bella Jewel

In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau.

Ash is a prison guard, she's tough, she's strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned.

Until the day he is brought into the prison. 

She'll never forget meeting Beau 'Krypt' Dawson for the first time. She'll never forget his haunted eyes and his numb expression. He's a member of the Jokers Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood. 

Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic.
All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason. 

Ash is desperate to know that reason. 

Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. Only Ash ends up right in the middle of it. 
They take her, too.

Now she's stuck with a Motorcycle Club who are tougher than any prisoner she's ever laid eyes on. And they won't let her go. She's too much of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together....alone. 
An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

****I received an arc in exchange for an honest review****

Bella you have seriously outdone yourself this time. This book OMFG, seriously it was hot the sexual chemistry between Ash and Beau it sizzled.

It was good to see that Ash was the kind of woman who took no shit, she know how to defend herself and had a sassy mouth. The way she took on Maverick made me laugh.

The sex scenes in this book were hotter than hot, and don't get me going on how sexy Beau was, the description of him is seriously hot, I can just imagine him.

Bella's writing is just phenomenal, I loved all her books and I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

You really need to get this book, I couldn't put it down until the end.

REVIEW OF MERCILESS LOVE BY NICOLE SNOW. @Nicolesnowbooks. ! #dark #romance #badboys #newadult #suspense


The name's Evan Cole, and I deserve to burn for what I've done.

The girl with the rocking body I saved yesterday believes I'm some kinda hero. You'd think she'd recognize evil after staring it in the face all her life, but with me, Cassie's completely blind.

She doesn't know this house is a prison. She doesn't know the cartel's got my son. She doesn't know I'm a selfish, desperate, pissed off imposter, and I'll do anything to get my boy home.

Dealing in flesh is nothing new. Remorse is a word I never learned. Turning her into a new toy for the savage blackmailing me should be a cakewalk. 

Except it isn't.

There's a deeper, crazier part of me that starts to blaze whenever I see her. I just can't shake these insane fantasies about hauling Cassie to bed and working out the pain, the rage, the insatiable lust, claiming her as mine and nobody else's...

No! I need to forget all that and get on with this sideshow. I can't go soft. If I do, the whole damn world's gonna crash down and bury everything I've ever cared about.

Note: this is a very dark and gritty romance novel about heartache, redemption, and really hot loving. Bad boys and desperate girls do the kinds of things you'd expect. Merciless love holds back nothing!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

***** I received this arc in exchange for an honest review*****

I love Nicole's work so when I received this arc, I thought this is different for her work, but it's got to be good.

I was, this book will take you on a journey, a dark journey. A warning though if you don't like dark reads, where sex is used as a punishment then don't read. But if your like me and do love a dark read then this is for you.

Evan is most definitely a bad boy and but doesn't have a black heart. I can understand why he is doing what he is doing, because who wouldn't for that reason. It's nice that he turns it around though and keeps things that are important to him.

Cassie considering her upbringing, she surprises me on how strong a person she is and never gives up, that's what I love about her.

Another great read by Nicole, the story flowed perfectly. Cannot wait to see if this is a standalone or part of a series

Author Bio
I was just nine years old when I discovered my passion for the paranormal world. That passion led me to a bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts where I had my first taste in writing, conjuring children’s plays and re-writing Shakespearean masterpieces to suit the modern times (Yes, he’s still cringing in his grave).
After years travelling around the world, translating other people’s novels and devouring paranormal romances, I realized the real world wasn’t fun without a touch of magic, and decided to purge my own crazy stories into paper, well, into word doc, to be more precise.
My busy life with a demanding full time job and a very loving husband (I’m so not complaining!) doesn’t allow me much spare time, but somehow every night I find myself in front of the computer, exorcising the millions of stories stored in my sanity-challenged mind.
My novels are tales of love and passion between strong female leads and hot heroes, bathed in paranormal magic, of course.
I live in Sydney, Australia, the land of koalas (that are not bears), kangaroos (that are not boxing champions) and Vegemite (a black spread that should have never been invented. Seriously, don’t try it).

In five words please describe your writing style:

Scattered brain, daydreamer, passionate and adventurous

Top three favorite titles (books or movies): 

Oh, it's so hard to choose! 
Interview with a vampire (the novel and the movie) 
The Matrix (the first movie) 
Leaving Microsoft to save the world (book by John Woods)

Do your leading characters come from any place in particular?

Yep, my heart. :)

What do you do in your down time?

My mind never stops so it's really hard for me to simply do nothing and just relax. I read novels, I watch movies, I sing and I dance.

Top five snacks while writing: 

Pop corn! 
Does red wine count as a snack?

What's your writing process?

I think about the characters for a few weeks, developing who they are, where they came from, and what cross-roads of life they are in. Then I write the first and maybe the second chapters, and then I eventually stop to draft the rest of the synopsis. I know it's a weird way of doing things but that's how my mind works.

Talk to us about your book, what is your favorite part or character?

I enjoyed writing the very first chapter, when Yara and Rafe meet at the fighting joint, the chapters when Yara and Rafe are in his wolf pack territory, the final battle... Oh, I can't choose!

What is the craziest thing you have ever done? 

Got married! :) My husband was supposed to be a summer fling. That was 10 years ago.

I'd like to say how much I love Sexy Books Blog. You rock!;)


Cover Reveal 


Book Title: Happiness in Jersey 
Author: Jacinta Howard 
Genre: Romance 
Release Date: August 29, 2014 


The only thing in Jersey Kinkaid’s world that she has time for are keeping her grades up so that she doesn’t lose her scholarship to South Texas University, playing the bass in her band, The Prototype, and satisfying her coffee addiction. Oh, and the occasional random hook-up she indulges in to pass the time. Love? Eh, not so much. Save that crap for a Katherine Heigl or Natalie Portman movie. Jersey’s seen enough in life (courtesy of her Pops) to realize that undying romance is nothing more than a myth used to sell books and movie tickets. As she knows too well, the only thing inevitable in life is death— love is definitely not promised. That’s why when Jersey meets Isaiah “Zay” Broussard with his soulful gray eyes, quick wit and easy charm, she’s determined to remain aloof. She doesn't have time to get sidetracked by fleeting fantasies, even if she does feel an unexplainable connection to Zay she’s never experienced before. But when his interest in her only seems to intensify, despite her attempts to brush him off, she gets to see a side of him and herself she didn’t expect… 


I’d never seen any of the Harry Potter movies or read one Harry Potter book and sometimes that made me feel a little weird, like I missed out on a vital part of my childhood or something. There was this girl that I sometimes used to hang out with back in middle school, Chloe, who used to keep at least one of the books with her at all times, like the bible. She always complained that her mom thought it was sorcery and believed that her love for the books would somehow cause her to grow up and eventually become a weirdo magician like David Blaine—either that or one of those tarot card readers that are always at arts festivals. I didn’t exactly agree with her mom because she was a super religious and condemned everything outside of the Fourth Street Baptist New Beacon of the Everlasting Tabernacle of Life Church as unholy, but I sort of get where she was coming from. Chloe thought the meaning of life was in the Harry Potter series. I leaned against the counter at work, bored stiff, watching one of the neighborhood high school kids engrossed in one of the Harry Potter books. I think the kid’s name was Jeremy but I couldn’t be sure because my memory was crap. I just knew the kid is a little strange. What fourteen year-old is purposely awake at eight-thirty every Saturday morning, sitting in a coffee shop reading Harry Potter? You’d think it had just been released the way this kid’s eyes were getting bigger and bigger with each sentence he read. How he managed to not know the ending was beyond me. Even I knew how the thing ended. Clearly he wasn’t a Wikipedia user. I frowned because then again, little weird ass, non-Wikipedia-using Jeremy will probably end up being the next Mark Zuckerberg or something since in this world, that’s kind of how shit happens. I sighed and picked at my now purple nail polish as I flipped through my Macro notes while I still had some downtime. It was Saturday so in a couple of hours when the campus kids finally woke up from their hangover slumbers I’d have the overwhelming joy of pouring coffee for them. In the year that I’d been working at Aroma, I’d found that there’s nothing more stimulating than serving college kids who ideally should have better things to do with their Saturdays than sip lattes and discuss meaningless pop culture happenings disguised as socio-political awareness (“What is it with Kanye West and his outbursts? I actually think he’s making a statement about post-Obama race relations and corporate dominance.”). College kids believe themselves to be very deep. “Kitten.” I jerked my head up, my eyes colliding directly with gray pupils. Dammit. How he managed to sneak up on me every time was beyond me. “Must you always sneak up on me?” I asked aloud, furrowing my brow, although it was difficult because he was so damn handsome, it was nearly impossible to frown and look at him at the same time. He had on another white form-fitting v-neck with a pair of worn black jeans today. He grinned disarmingly and shook his head. “If you call walking up to a counter in a relatively busy coffee shop that’s located around the corner from a popular campus in broad daylight ‘sneaking up on you’ then yes, I guess I must.” I rolled my eyes. “I feel like you really are stalking me now,” I said when he just stood there, looking at me. “I’m actually waiting for you to take my order.” I stared at him for a second longer then grabbed a mug and poured him a cup of plain coffee. “You remembered,” he said, sounding a combination of happy and impressed. I rolled my eyes again. “Yes, that was so very difficult.” “You said you had a bad memory yesterday… or wait, did you forget?” He laughed like he’d actually said something funny. “Aw, come on, Kitten,” he joked in his raspy baritone, his smirk back in place. “That was a little funny.” He studied me as he leaned his hip against the counter, making himself totally at home. “I think your button is lying,” he said after a few seconds of silence. “Huh?” “Your button,” he said again in his slow drawl, nodding toward my right breast. “It’s lying.” I glanced down at the button that said “COFFEE MAKES ME HAPPY” and rolled my eyes again, unable to stop myself from grinning. “So, how’d you learn to play the bass?” he asked casually, interest lighting his smoky eyes. I shrugged, caught a little off-guard by his sudden change of subject. “I just… could play.” “So, you taught yourself?” he asked. Again, he looked impressed. I found myself kind of liking his impressed look. “Yeah. I was having a bad day, found my Pop’s bass in the closet and started messing around with it. I sucked at first, obviously. But it didn’t take too long for me to get the hang of it.” He nodded and smiled. I was happy to see his impressed look again so quickly. He glanced over his shoulder at the table we’d sat at the day before. “I feel kind of weird talking to you with a counter between us.” I shrugged again. “You know it’s against company policy for me to fraternize with customers while I'm on the clock.” He leaned forward a little, his eyes on mine. “But I'm really enjoying fraternizing with you.” His eyes skipped down my face to my breasts, causing heat to spread everywhere his eyes touched. “Besides, you’re already breaking company policy with all the eye rolling you’ve done this morning.” He nodded toward my HAPPY button. “Eye rolling is pretty much the exact opposite of ‘happy’.” I stared at him blankly. “Please?” he said, tilting his head a little when I didn’t move, flashing the half-dimple in his right cheek. Damn he was cute. “Okay,” I huffed dramatically. I grabbed my own coffee, nodding for him to lead the way.

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


Entrepreneur Zachary Wilkins doesn’t see himself as a brother to his younger cousins, like they have considered him to be. He feels indebted to his aunt and uncle for adopting him and officially making him a member of their family. When he encounters Shaina Hayes, he wants her just as much as she wants him. Seeing her, for a second time, at his cousin, Aaron’s wedding, stirs emotions in him that he can’t shake and further fuels his desire for her. Shaina Hayes has had two rules since moving into Bloomfield Township, Ohio; work hard and keep to herself. One night, however, she goes out to celebrate her new job. A tall, handsome man catches her eye and the attraction between them unravels into an explosive night of passion. A night that she relives in her mind and vows to herself to never repeat again.

Eyes scanning the interior of the bar, Shaina couldn’t find a corner or a table she could occupy. As she pivoted around, she saw a very handsome man with facial hair that looked like it’d taken a week or two to grow in. As the older waitress picked up all of the bottles and empty baskets, the man told her something and slipped what looked like a stack of bills into the tiny pocket of her apron. The waitress looked stunned and he gave her a smile that made the women look like she was going to melt. Five minutes later, the man Shaina had her eyes on hadn’t moved from the table. Was he waiting for someone? His girlfriend? Based on the man’s manners and seemingly agreeable demeanor, Shaina could easily picture him having the company of a woman tonight. Or a man. Looking directing at her target, Shaina marched over to him. The man’s eyes settled on her before she stood across from him. He had a beautiful shade of azure eyes. Usually, she didn’t feel like she needed to take a cold shower when she saw a good-looking man. Not even a drop dead gorgeous one. Perhaps it was because his eyes seemed familiar to her, as odd as that sounded. It became apparent that he was here by himself. She wouldn’t leave him sitting at a table in a bar by himself for more than five minutes if she was out with him tonight. “Is this seat taken?” Shaina’s tone was blasé. He shook his head “no” and she sinuously slid down on the hard wooden chair. “What can I get you to drink?” she asked. He flashed a grin that conjured up an image in her mind of his head disappearing between her legs, the texture of his stubble on her hot core. How could this man be so devastatingly seductive without having spoken? He held up his finger and the waitress was at their table immediately. “Get this lady here anything she wants. I’ll have a Stout and salty soft pretzels.” The waitress jerked her eyes to Shaina, a barely perceptible grin on her face. The power that this man held in his deep voice was at odds with his laid-back appearance. She’d noted that he was wearing sandals. “A Stout for me too,” Shaina replied. They were alone a split second later. “I am Shaina.” She dipped her head a little, the same boldness floating in her tone was reflected in her hazel eyes. “I am Zachary.” “Zachary, for a couple of minutes it looked like you were here with someone.” His lips curved into a smile. “You were watching me?” Shaina nodded. “Would you not have asked to get me a drink if someone else was with me?” “If I thought you were with a random person like me who was talking to you, then I would’ve came over here regardless.” She slightly lifted her shoulders. “I wanted to know if you’re as handsome as you looked four feet away up close.” Shaina couldn’t tell what Zachary was thinking. He studied her as the waitress brought their food and drinks to the table. He knew that he was more than just pleasant to look at. Zachary told the waitress “thank you” and he resumed his appraisal of Shaina. As Shaina swigged her ice-cold Stout, she felt warm all over; her body flushed. “You’re easy on the eyes, as you well know.” He lifted his glass of Stout to his lips and she peered at the slow movements along the column of his lean neck and the breadth of his shoulders. Heat began to build between her legs. “I’ve seen you in town but never here.” “I haven’t been in Joey’s in a while but I’ve passed by you once or twice that I can remember. I think you were clean shaven, though and bundled up.” Zachary bobbed his head and Shaina bit into the salted pretzel. “You had to be all covered up yourself. I favor you in what you have on—exposing just enough of your skin.” He raked his gaze over her face and down to her cleavage. “I like what you’ve put to the imagination.” A flash of desire swept over Shaina and her mouth went dry. She reached to take another sip of the beer when she heard him ask, “Why’d you end your hiatus from here tonight?” Shaina’s cheeks lifted into a slow, wistful smile. “I have a new job.” Zachary’s eyebrows furrowed. “There’s something more to it. Kind of like you’d go back to the position you previously had if you could.” Shaina didn’t think she’d given any hint that her new position was bittersweet for her. “Sort of, but my boss knew that I wanted the job I now have when I’d applied. What do you do for a living?” She gulped her drink down and ate some more of her salty pretzel. “I work with relatives of mine.” “We don’t have to discuss our professions. That’s not why we’re doing this little dance around what my purpose in conversing with you is,” Shaina said as her expression changed, the ferocity of her gaze betrayed that she wouldn’t continue to pursue him under any circumstance. “Are you married?” “No,” Zachary said, “and I am not dating other women at the moment.” Shaina turned the knob on her tiny purse, tore a sheet of paper from her note pad and took a pen. She wrote something down and then slid the small piece of paper over to him. With an indecipherable expression, Zachary glanced at it and then peered at her once more, his eyes more penetrating and intense than hers had been when she’d asked about his marital status. “You wouldn’t even need to drive to my apartment. I live six blocks down from this place. The building after Lou’s diner,” Shaina told him, not sounding the least bit discouraged. He gave her an “I know my way around Bloomfield Township” look as she surged to her feet, and grabbed another salty pretzel, chewing on it as she strutted away from him.
