COVER REVEAL and GIVEAWAY ....EL SANTO by M. Robinson


COVER REVEAL
EL SANTO
BY: USA TODAY Bestselling Author M. Robinson
Genre: Contemporary/New Adult Romance
Standalone
Cover Model Enrico Ravenna
Cover Designer: TheFinal Wrap
Release Date: November 16th, 2017






I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed.
I tortured.
I loved…
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
For them.
For anyone.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.

Until it was too late.

Except, I didn’t choose this life. It. Chose. Me.





He was there. He was really there with me. I wasn’t imagining it. His arm wrapped around my shoulders, hugging me back and I squeezed him tighter. Sobbing harder. “Shhh…Muñeca. I’m here. Shhh… It’s okay, I’m here.” In that moment with him, something told me that for the first time in his life… He didn’t feel so alone anymore either.

Royal Pain by Tracy Wolff....... review by Dawn

35212286He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.

Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.

Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.

But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince










I wanted to just love this book, I honestly did...but I was almost annoyed from the get go. He is a prince, a PRINCE, with that we all know comes money and status. I did  not need the bombardment of label dropping, everything from his tie to his socks. I GET IT, he can afford to dress like royalty. I do not need all that information. 

I was also a bit lost by the fact that the Royal Prince has been kidnapped and it takes 3 months to locate him. Not saying that things like this do not take time. I had issue with Kian's twin brother is kidnapped and he is out there scoring or trying to score chicks. What?
I could not get into Kian and Savvy's "relationship." Insta love rarely works for me. She was off putting towards Kian and he loved it, or something like that. He was absolutely drawn to Savvy and had to have her. 
Once Savvy's "secret" is revealed , I was not interested any more, honestly. It did nothing for me. I am suppose to believe that his royal highness to the throne was in a secret relationship for not a year or even two, BUT 5, nope I don't buy it. Royals have no privacy! 
The story was sexy and I really liked the banter of Savvy and Kian, but that was it. This story was just too much of a lot of things.

Malachi and I by JJ McAvoy........ review by Dawn










35988553


A Contemporary Mystical Romance 

What if I told you the greatest love stories ever told—Cleopatra and Mark Antony, Salim and Anarkali, Romeo and Juliet and so many more—are far greater tragedies than anyone has ever realized? 

What if I told you that you haven’t been reading a new story… just a new chapter in one epic saga? 

If I told you…all of those lovers…were actually the same two souls seeking their happily ever after over and over again, would you believe me? 

Would you believe them? 
Born again, 
Love again, 
Part again, 
Was their curse. 

In this modern era, will they find eternal love or will they be doomed to repeat the cycle forever? 




 I  often use the word "smart" when I am referring to Ms. McAvoy 's writing, and so is the case with Malachi and I .
What a wonderful trip through time, visiting the original love stories that have spanned time. There are certain bullet points that I like to be checked off when I am reading and reviewing a book . This one meets,and exceeds most of them.
We get just enough angst to keep going, wondering how it is going to pan out.
The vivid picture Ms.McAvoy painted with her spot on storytelling and her natural ability to paint a clear picture.
Esther is so captivated by Malachi's stories, not knowing that they are a retelling of lives he has lived. She is so funny in the first half of the book, I laughed so much. Oh, but Malachi, he broke my heart! The retelling of his past lives, although BRILLIANT writing... My heart was so heavy and hurting for poor Malachi. The flashbacks were the high point of this story, so wonderfully written. I wish there had been more.
Esther's character grows throughout the book and that NEEDED to happen. She was a bit aloof at times and that didn't sit well with me. I loved that she became more, serious throughout the second half of the story. The heartbreaking stories that Malachi retold her were like torture. I was deeply moved by the way it played out.
The midway point in this story was a bit lagging, but it is brought back to life in the second portion of the book.I did miss the "hot factor" in this book, but really was this the book for that kind of thing?
I did enjoy this but I do honestly believe there is a definite audience for this book. I would say the 16-25 age range, with a vivid imagination, a lover of fairy tales, with a splash of angst!

Blind Date by Belle Jewel...Review by Dawn


31450628I have read most of everything that Miss Jewel has published , but was not aware of this suspense romance she has been writing. I am a FAN!  
I finished this book in one sitting, I could not put it down.  I like an amature, started reading this late at night. I was so creeped out. It's not frightening  or a blood bath. It is just so creepy, for lack of a better word. 
I was immediately taken with Hartley, she is an amazing leading lady. Her spunk and strong will nature has me in , from the first few paragraphs. She has suffered a loss that would leave anyone absolutely devestated and it did. When she decides, not fully on board to get back out there and try her hand at dating again. Let's just say that things do not go so well front he very first date. Not wanting to fulfill her promise to her friend Taylor but even more so not wanting to let Taylor down, Hart agrees to go one one more date. 
To say that this story line was not predictable would be a lie. That is the only thing that I was really let down by. This was so easy to figure out . You knew from their first meeting that Jacob was going to be the bad guy. Well at least I did.
The introduction of Ace was hilarious. With Hartley's need to make her neighbor say "Hello" and his need to stay silent and not interact, made for a funny subplot. Ace, he is just everything I want in my leading man. Strong, brooding, sexy and protective...typical Alpha male, and I LOVE it. He was the perfect match for Hartley, even if he would never admit it. 
This story has a clear message for women, do not sit by and become another victim! Take action and do not let anyone take away your control. Be smart, be vigilant and know what when something feels off, don't dismiss it. I truly loved Hartley and Taylor's instinct to survive. Neither one of them ever gave up and I found that so awesome. They did not wait to be rescued, they rescued themselves! 
I am looking forward to more of this writing from Ms. Jewel
Bravo.

Raw Heat book 3 in the Larson Brothers series ...Review by Dawn

35265849

The third book in the Larson Brothers series from New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn is the sexiest installment yet!
Youngest Larson brother Damien has the luck of the devil. Fast talking and faster thinking, he owns a successful nightclub in Houston and runs an illegal poker room upstairs. After a troubled childhood, now nothing is out of Damien’s reach—except his accountant, Emma Haskell.
Emma has always been drawn to Damien’s dark intensity and the gleam in his eyes that promises more than she can possibly handle. But when her brother’s gambling threatens to destroy her family, Damien makes her an offer she’d be crazy to accept—but can’t refuse: her brother’s debts will be forgiven, and Emma belongs to him for thirty days.
In Damien’s world, he shows his angelic bookkeeper what it’s like to live with the devil. But Emma brings out a side in Damien he thought didn’t exist. Will the flames of lust scorch them both, or will this beauty tame the beast and give him something to fight for?
Raw Heat scorches with emotional intensity and smoldering passion that will leave readers spellbound!
Dawn's Review
It's funny to me or rather appropriately so, that I am in LOVE with Damien Larson. See Cherie Lynn wrote my one and only true book boyfriend, Brian Ross, in Rock Me. There is just something about the way she writes these brooding leading men. Anyway, Raw Heat is the third and final book in the Larson Brother's stories, and I believe the BEST! Where the other two were good, there is just something different about this one, and I believe that is Emma. She is a breath of fresh air. Rowan was a hard leading lady for me to get past in the first two books. So having a completely new and unknown leading lady worked wonderfully. The story behind Damien's brooding and reputation has been often talked about through out the series, but nothing definitive. He is darker and harder to read than Michael and Zane. Emma, WOW, I really enjoyed her. She was a quiet church mouse, the unnoticed, until she had to deliver bad news to her boss Damien. Little did she knew, she was on his radar. I loved that she was a force when pushed. The chemistry between Emma and Damien was off the charts. WOW, this is a sexy hot story. This is the book that I wish the rest of the series were. I could have read an entire series that revolved around Emma and Damien alone, that is how much I enjoyed this story. Also, the fact that Emma's family played a role in this story was intriguing. Her relationship with her brother, in turn her relationship with her parents, played out very well. I highly recommend this story.

Dawn's Review

With the perfect muse of Brock O' Hurun  as Luke Dawson., Miss Adventures of a City Girl  is wonderful!  It is a fun read, I finished in one setting , that is how much I enjoyed it.  
The combination of these two fantastic authors works so well in telling Madison and Luke's sexy, HOT, intense story.  Ms. Wild and Miss Bliss tell a story that is not only the aforementioned, but also poignant. Issues such as PTSD , social anxiety, divorce and loss. This is much more than a romance story, this is a story about learning to live again.  I ONLY wished they had a child, just because I am selfish and wanted more of their story.
I am not a big fan of insta love, so much that I took a break and asked my husband when he knew he loved me. I love a book that makes you think. He explained it so spot on that I went back in the story with a new set of eyes, and it worked! 
I loved it so much! Thanks Ladies for an amazing read.
