Review: Dangerous Alliance (Pure Sin) by Kyra Davis

DANGEROUS ALLIANCE is emotionally intense because of conflicted feelings and uncertainties.

While the first book in the Pure Sin series may have begun a very elaborate scheme, it is the second installment where physical yearnings and long held dreams could be fulfilled or perhaps may not. When more than one person is working on a plan, personal choices could lead to the possibility of something not going as intended for everyone involved. If the participants are as strong-willed as the two main characters in this story, then the opportunity for clashes could arise at any time even though their lusty desires are frequently almost uncontrollable. Kyra Davis makes DANGEROUS ALLIANCE dramatically intriguing throughout each fascinating scenario.

Anger had previously been the only driving force inside Adoncia Jimenez, but then a certain man caused her to begin feeling a multitude of other emotions. Though Lander’s last name might be Gable, he is not like his half-brother and even wants retribution against his own family. Insinuating herself into the banking family that Adoncia blames for sending her innocent mother to prison was the easy part. Now she must use her position as a personal assistant to ruin the lives of several people just like they wrecked her own.

Lander and Adoncia devise a well-planned scheme, and she sets it in motion. Both are collecting any evidence they can that will prove illegal bank dealings were conducted, as they want these individuals to pay for their unethical behavior. Adoncia uses a variety of different methods and tells countless lies in the hope something concrete will be found to use against those she despises. Though some tactics come with a chance of jeopardy, she is not about to give up on her quest for retaliation. But as she keeps pushing to reach her objective, Lander makes her start questioning if their ultimate goal is the same.

There are quite a few people in DANGEROUS ALLIANCE who are determined to not let anyone stop them from continuing their present routine, whether it pertains to their daily lifestyle or is business related. Many of those who Adoncia is trying to bring down are callous in every way imaginable, and I was cheering her on and really wanted her clever form of punishment to be achieved. Hooking up with Lander sounded like an excellent idea, but what happens afterward does not always go as anticipated, just like in real life. He sometimes causes Adoncia to wish for things she had never thought were actually wanted, while also repeatedly bringing confusion into her life. Though the passion they share is always steamy, what feelings are behind their reactions are usually left unspoken. The way in which she responds to more than one occurrence is certainly packed with lots of intensity, as there are moments when she cannot hold back on her honest comments.

The suspense of how everything will play out keeps building from the very start, and the number of events that take the story down unexpected paths just keeps rising. Kyra Davis skillfully constructs one startling situation after another, where the surprises leave you astounded. The huge number of secrets in the story just keeps adding up, and many of them are critical in how the book concludes. DANGEROUS ALLIANCE is all about taking a risk, where often a threat to the heart is the greatest peril of all.

Too gay for werewolves and too aggressive for humans, Lindsay tries to be happy with his successful life in the business world. The someone starts kidnapping members of affluent families. Trying to help, Lindsay meets Seth Zakowsky who represent everything he wants but cannot have.

Seth has never been attracted to someone quite as flamboyant as Lindsay but for some reason he cannot seem to resist him. When Seth discovers Lindsay’s sexually aggressive side, Seth is sure he met the one man who could match his own needs. That is until he learns more than he ever wanted.

You cannot help but fall in love with Lindsey. He is certainly someone whose flashy exterior hides someone completely different inside. He is so much than his visible appearance. Seth senses this but cannot seem to reconcile his eyes to what his heart sees. When everything goes south, Seth has more than one decision to make.

Tara Lain knows how to capture her readers. From the first page to the last we are treated to action and adventure that seems to be unpredictable and, at times, amusing, other times not so. Lindsey is a poor little rich boy who feels he does not fit in either world. He wants to be loved for himself. The ending is perfect and will have you applauding. Tara Lain’s Wolf in Gucci Loafers is perfect for those of us who enjoy a fantastic MM story filled with action, adventure and good measure of heat.

Review: A Walk Through Fire by Felice Stevens

There is something extremely heartbreaking about A Walk Through Fire by Felice Stevens. Perhaps it is the fact that there is immense tragedy in this book or even the suffering of the characters but there is also the fact that sadly the story is not really fiction at its core. Bad things happen every day and people suffer. This book delves into the lives of some of those who have suffered and takes a look at the effects of that suffering. A Walk Through Fire is the perfect title for this novel as that is exactly what these characters end up doing.

Asher escaped his abusive foster family and has become a successful lawyer. He is considered to be a ruthless individual who takes what he wants and who he wants. On the inside however he struggles with loneliness and guilt from having abandoned his foster brothers. Drew is surgeon going through a divorce and dealing with his own feelings of guilt associated with the deaths of his parents. Drew has decided to set up a clinic to help abused young women and men and ends up working with Asher as part of setting up the clinic. Drew is not gay but there is something about Asher that draws him in. Asher has never known love and the feelings that Drew rouses in him and the innate goodness of Drew seem to scare him more than anything else ever has. When his work with the clinic brings a troubled young man into Asher’s life, it sets off a series of events that puts Drew, his family and his friends in danger and will cause Asher to realize that he is more than willing to fight for a man he has come to need.

Felice Stevens knows how to craft a story that is inescapable. The characters are so damaged in their own way that they just work. As a reader, these characters elicit empathy and compassion that follows long after the story is over. One can only hope that the author plans to follow this book up with a sequel or at least revisits these characters later on because it is imperative to know what happens. The ending is one that will both tear a reader apart emotionally and yet leave them with a sense of hope as well.

Review: Brokedown Hearts by Cameron Dane

Brokedown Hearts by Cameron Dane is technically the third book in the Foster Siblings series. That does not mean this can not be read as a stand alone, instead it just adds to the overall story line as past characters do make an appearance in this book. Whether read as a stand alone or as part of the overall series, the book is well written with a strong plot and two characters that are without a doubt perfect for each other. There is a lot of backstory that is crucial to the storyline and the author covers this beautifully and in such a way that even with the one character’s past, the reader has a chance to truly empathize with the character because of his struggles and desires to be a better man.

David is an ex-con trying to atone for his past and figure out who he is now. He works at an animal shelter and tries to keep his head down and stay out of trouble while also trying to earn the forgiveness of people he has wronged in the past. He wants to prove to everyone that he is a new man. Then he sees Ben, a man staying at the same motel he is and the attraction is terrifying to him as he feels that anything he loves, he eventually destroys. Ben is a PI on a forced vacation. He has been asked to tail David to make sure he doesn’t start any trouble. Unfortunately, there is something about David that Ben empathizes with and there is also an attraction there that he never saw coming. As the two men continue to see each other and interact their attraction continues to grow and as secrets come to light, both men must fight their own demons in order to have a chance together. Sadly they also have to contend with an outside force. Someone is stalking David but he is too afraid that no one will believe him if he tells. When David’s stalker suddenly escalates everything, it is up to Ben to make sure that David is saved.

Cameron Dane is an exceptional author. The characters are always empathetic and there is something especially compelling about David. Even though he made a terrible mistake, there are so many reasons behind his actions that as a reader it almost seems like everything was inevitable. This book leaves the readers wanting more, more of these characters and more of this amazing series. This is definitely an amazing book with characters that will stay with a reader long after the book has been finished.

It would be tough for anyone. Armand was powerful, but even he had no clue what was coming. Twists and turns, danger and excitement, His Omega by A.C. Katt has it all. The start of new series, The Werewolves of Manhattan, A.C. Katt’s newest promises to be refreshing and action-packed. It is also filled with some delicious heat.

Review: Dirty Deeds by Rhys Ford

Cole is determined to keep Jae-Min safe. Even if it means he may need to resort to Dirty Deeds.

Cole McGinnis never thought he would want to murder someone. But six months ago when Sheila Parnell almost killed Jae-Min, Cole knew he that it was a possibility. He and Jae are now living happily together, having survived Jae being disowned by his Korean family.

Jae and Cole are living together and are happy with the exception of the Sheila could hanging over their heads. It is interesting to note that both men look at that cloud differently. Excitement, action and danger all combine to make Dirty Deeds by Rhys Ford an amazing not to be missed story. Make sure this one is added to your list.

It is fun reading different stories written by different authors. Each one was amazing and the conclusion was worth it all. R.J. Scott penned a fitting ending for an amazing series. We can only hope that these authors will collaborate again on another amazing series of book. Thanks so much!
