ARC review of INTO THE FIRE by EL Todd

Wow! Into the Fire is a flirtatious, passionate, at times angst driven story filled with great flow. I loved the characters and the way they meet and how they end up by the end. I loved the dual POV which helped me understand where the characters’ thoughts and feelings were.

Ash is a very cocky man who can be arrogant one moment and in another so sweet and alpha toward his woman. He says things without thinking but that’s part of his charm. He has a heart that wants to do for his woman; at times he gets too full of himself yet never too full to think of others. Ash was a war veteran  and he has come home and all he wants is to run a business yet his parents refused to repay a loan because they do not approve of his business that he wants to run—doing tattoos. Which in order to get the loan he gave them paid back, he has to show he has met a nice girl and is “settling down”..this is how he meets Alessandra…

Alessandra- she is cautious. She has been burned too many times and now she is just trying to make it thru her days doing things right- she loves but loves with caution. She definitely can have an acid tongue when the situation calls for it. When she meets Ash, he has come to her with a business proposition- “act” like his  girlfriend for a while, he will pay her and then when he  gets his money paid back, they are done. But that’s isn’t what happened. They start to get involved, hearts get involved and they really start dating. There is the usual ups and downs when in a relationship but the ending was fantastic. I loved the story and the premise –the flow was fantastic. I found the MC to be believable and the ending awesome.

My Rating: 4.5 stars ****

AP - Synopsis.jpg

I am going to die.

I can’t change or fix it.

It is just something that is bound to happen.

I have fought for so long that all I want to do is give up, but I can’t because I have a sweet, devoted husband.

I have a sister, who I am deathly afraid to leave behind because I am all the family she has left.

And then there’s Maximilian Grant—the ex that I can’t seem to shake or get rid of.

I want to remain a warrior, but when what’s left of my life is tested, and my love becomes a jumbled up mess, all I can think is one heart shattering thing.

How can I leave this world peacefully knowing not only is there one man that would die for me, but two?

AP- Excerpt.jpg

“I will give you one night. But only one, Max,” I said, holding up a single finger. “And we have to go to a place that I really want to go to.”

“Alright,” he sighed, running a hand over the top of his head. His hair was wavy, like dark ocean waves. “You name the time and place.”

“Tomorrow night. Eight o’clock at Craves on West 5th.” I stepped back, tucking my hair behind my ear. “And please,” I said over my shoulder as I turned away, “don’t be late.” I gave him a faint smile. To me, this was a game of cat and mouse and he’d finally caught me but he hadn’t tried to eat me just yet. I had to tamper with his ego. Get under his skin just a little bit.

Only… it didn’t work.

The legs of his stool screeched across the floor, creating an obnoxious noise. Max hopped off the stool, catching me before I could make a break for it out the back door. I spun around, landing between his warm, bulky arms, breath catching, my lips parted as I met his warm brown eyes.

His olive skin, up close like this, looked like it was made of satin. I wanted to touch his face, trace my fingertips down his firm, chiseled jawline. But I held back.

“You think you’re fucking with my head, don’t you?” Max asked quietly, his voice a murmur beneath the music.

“Not at all,” I challenged.

“What made you give in?”

“Nothing. I just think I owe you this much…”

He frowned. “You don’t owe me shit.”

“I kinda do…”

“You don’t owe me anything, Little Shakes. You don’t have to do this. I’m not forcing you.”

“Whatever,” I said, deliberately maneuvering out of his arms and pulling my satchel on top of my shoulder, “it’s just one night. Can’t do too much harm, right?”

Max scoffed, which made me frown. “Shakes, when I’m done with you, you’ll be begging for more than just one night.” He stepped forward, holding onto my wrist and reeling me into him. I clashed softly with his rock-solid body, my head tipped up, our eyes bolting. “I don’t fuck around,” he said, leaning forward to place his lips near the shell of my ear. “I want you. Bad. And now that you’ve given me this chance, I’m going to make it the best night of your fucking life. I am going to make sure this one night turns into infinity.”

I could hardly breathe. I heard every word and believe me when I say my panties were beyond wet. I was drenched for him and he’d hardly touched me. His voice, so orgasmic and deep. His body, so hard and smooth and warm. So near. So motherfucking perfect. Max knew what he was doing. And I shouldn’t have tested his ego considering I hadn’t been laid up in five months.

I admit I was a little desperate for him. I mean, he was the finest man I’d been around in months, I saw him almost every night, and he was into me. Really, really into me.

The way he held me, his hand on the small of my back and purposely near my ass, exhibited more than enough proof of how much he desired me. He was silently teasing me and slowly but surely unraveling every fiber in my body.

I wondered why, however. I was the dullest girl working at Capri. And I admit I wasn’t the cutest of them all. What was it about me that made him want the chase?

I straightened up, smiling softly as I pulled away from him and walked to the door. I felt him watching me walk away, and when I looked back a hint of a smile was tugging at the corners of those perfectly sculpted lips. As I pushed the door open I casually said, “We’ll see about that infinity thing.”

ARC Review of The Choices Trilogy: Plus New Novella 1.5 Box Set by Dee Palmer

I LOVED this trilogy and was sad when the story came to an end. There is so much passion , intrigue and suspense –and did I say passion? What I mean is balls to the wall , intense, earthy delights that the MC put forth that I couldn’t get enough of.

Never a Choice: Book 1—In this book, we meet Bethany who is has had a loss in the past and is trying to move past it. She is going to college, trying to get her degree so she can make a better life for herself and take care of her mother.  She is an older student and while at college she meets the guest speaker named Daniel. There is a spark, this chemistry. Meanwhile Bethany is trying to make extra money so she takes a 2nd job. During this time, Bethany and Daniel slip into a relationship where Daniel is this sexy, dominant alpha; while Bethany is hiding some secrets. Oh and there is Bethany’s psycho sister and a cast of awesome supporting characters. Bethany  is a perfect sub to Daniel’s Dom.. I loved the energy they had together. And then the book ends in a cliffhanger due to her psycho sister..
Always a Choice: Book 2—Bethany is trying to come back from the pain and hurt her sister left her in. In this book, secrets from Bethany’s past that she didn’t know about are then told to her and she is devastated. Daniel is left trying to help her recover. Bethany and Daniel grow closer in the beginning and OMG ladies and lads, the sex is sooo HAWT! Bethany ends up meeting someone she didn’t think she would ever meet. Then just as everything is great fantastic, someone from Daniel’s past come back into his life now- Angel-his ex. Now things between Daniel and Bethany are strange and the dynamics are not as perfect as they were before . As I read this, I could feel the pain and confusion. Also I could sense there was some sort of plan at work involving Angel-not sure what but was hoping Daniel woke up to see it. This ended on a heartbreaking cliffhanger AND a secret.
The Only Choice: Book 3-- Bethany and Daniel are in a bad way. This is one of the most heartbreaking books in this trilogy. I WAS SOOO Mad at Daniel for him pushing Bethany away, even when she begged him to please listen when she was trying to protect him from Angel and her mechanisms. Daniel broke her heart and pushed her away. Bethany broke my heart as she stumbled along holding her secret well because she wasn’t going to told Daniel since he “made his choice”.  But there is danger unfolding- Bethany’s psycho sister is back and she has her eyes set and there is new alliances made. Bethany is in HUGE danger. Will Daniel wake up and get to her in time? Will they get back together? This is what made this one of my favorites is due to the emotional tone and the suspense along with the ending in this story.
Never a Choice 1.5 Novella:--This is just a story set sometime in between Never a Choice and Always a Choice from what I could determine. Also, this story is told in Daniel's POV. Oh and are the scenes HOT- Daniel’s hot alpha DOM makes a show and he doesn’t play around. Bethany is his and he proves it.

I loved these books and this will always be my favorites books of all time. I am sad that Bethany and Daniel  stories are over but maybe we will get a peak into their world again. I think the author wrote something so good, that I cannot wait to see what she has next.

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
