Unruly Defender Blurb:
A vow of justice.
A breach of silence.
A heart fueled by vengeance.
It all consumes the life of one Unruly Defender.


The first thing Eddie swore when he walked out of prison was that justice would prevail. He didn’t throw the first punch that landed him in prison, but he will make sure this time, he will be the last one to strike.


The twists and turns of Gracelynn’s life ended when she found new friends along with the perfect job. That is until the owner shows up and tips the balance of her life in a frustrating, and eventually dangerous way.


With every heartbeat Eddie gets closer to unraveling a secret that took lives, and in the end will risk the woman who touched his heart. Life is full of surprises and unknowingly crossed paths, but emotions and vengeance are bound to collide into a deadly explosion. Will Eddie be the one coming out on the losing side again or is he willing to give up the one thing he wants more than his next breath? Vengeance or love? Justice or death? In the end, the choice might not be his.

#cliffsidebay #treyandautumn #scarred

For Autumn Hickman, online dating has been an exercise in nothing more than coffee and failure. There simply isn’t a man on the planet who can compare to her best friend, Trey Wattson. And while Trey is everything Autumn has ever wanted in a partner, she knows the man who loves life’s most beautiful things could never cherish anything as scarred and mangled as her.

Trey Wattson is in love with his best friend, but he can’t seem to reach her. She’s guarded, and for good reason, but Trey doesn’t care. He knows Autumn’s soul, and it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Desperate to claim Autumn’s heart for his own, Trey conspires with The Wolves to create a fake profile on the dating site Autumn frequents. But the more Autumn trusts Trey’s online persona, the more it becomes clear that Trey is gambling with the very thing he wants most of all.

Return to Tess Thompson’s beloved Cliffside Bay and discover for yourself why true love is built on honesty and trust, and why best friends often make the very best life partners, in this anonymous online romance set in your favorite charming small town.

#PTurnersBookClub | #BookReview | GUILTY PLEASURES by Laurell K Hamilton @LKHamilton (October 1993)

Blurb:

Anita Blake is small, dark, and dangerous. Her turf is the city of St. Louis. Her job: re-animating the dead and killing the undead who take things too far. But when the city’s most powerful vampire asks her to solve a series of vicious slayings, Anita must confront her greatest fear—her undeniable attraction to master vampire Jean-Claude, one of the creatures she is sworn to destroy…

*L* review

A fellow P Turner talks about these books a lot so it didn’t come as a huge surprise when she picked it as her blog book club read for the year. As an added bonus she gave me my copy as a gift so I had no excuse not to take part.

I haven’t read a huge amount of supernatural books. The Twilight series and the first few on the Vampire Diaries is pretty much where my supernatural repertoire ends so I was intrigued to see what Anita Blake had in store.

I really really enjoyed this book. I found myself eager to read and discover what would happen between these pages. Although it is mainly about hunting vampires, there are lots of killing and deaths in Guilty Pleasures (don’t read if your squeamish), I found Anita’s sarcasm added just the right amount of humour to make it less dark than it otherwise would be. Anita is likeable and probably even relatable if you take out the whole animator/vampire killer thing, and I am sure we will get to know her a lot more and why she is who she is in future books. I definitely enjoyed her wit and sarcasm both as a narrator and a character. 

There did seem to be a huge amount of characters introduced throughout the book. I did struggle at times to keep track of who was who as you would just get your head around someone and then someone else was thrown into the mix. That being said I did get used to the names and it didn’t affect the story. I also imagine that some of the people will make appearances in future books which may make it easier to keep track as we get to know them better.

Guilty Pleasures it turns out is a club that is run by vampires. As Anita is taken there by her friend’s friend for a hen night it leads to a whole load of trouble for Anita as she tries to protect her friends, do her job as an animator and find a vampire killer whilst also trying to stay alive. I did really enjoy the killer storyline and couldn’t guess where it was leading. It’s not really a whodunnit story though so don’t pick it up expecting lots of clues but do expect a whole heap of twists and turns because it sure has that. 

This story is very different to what I would most probably pick for myself but overall I thoroughly enjoyed Guilty Pleasures and will definitely be looking for more in the series in the very near future. Can’t wait to see what other trouble Anita can find herself in.


[K] review

This book was read as part of The P Turners Book Club

As I have previously read this story of Anita Blake I knew roughly
what to expect. Despite this I still found the novel as enjoyable as
the first time I read it. In a world where vampires are real and live
amongst us Anita is a take no nonsense Animator who is also a part
time vampire slayer. In the first of this series Anita is coerced into
investigating a series of vampire murderers, which draws her
unwillingly further into the vampire world.

This book gives an intriguing insight into what the world could be if
vampires were real (or are they already real but just in hiding?) True
folklore descendants of Vlad the Impaler and Dracula, these are not
your cute and sparkly Twilight vampires, these despite appearances and
civility are the vampires of nightmares and horror stories. If book
one is a good example of the series, holding a number of characters,
human and immortal, I cannot wait to see where Anita’s story takes us
next.

#breakingthechains #coverreveal #comingsoon #mcromance #bikerbookboyfriends #satansknights #prospecttrilogy #bishop

One way or another, all men pay for their crimes. Some do their time locked in a cage, while others meet their overdue karma without a judge or jury. My debt to society is almost paid and soon I’ll finally be free to get my son the justice he deserves.

The justice he wouldn’t be due if only I had done my job as his father and protected him.

There’s just one hitch and her name is Charlotte.

The gorgeous and completely inexperienced paralegal whose mission in life is to make me a law-abiding citizen and not a vengeful son of a bitch.

I’m sure walking a straight line wasn’t what my cellmate had in mind when he retained a lawyer for me. In fact, I’d be willing to bet every dollar in my commissary, he hired the hot shot attorney to get me out of this hell hole and back on the streets where I can bring my son’s assaulter to his knees.

But the lawyer quickly pawned me off on the leggy brunette and instead of getting me out, she’s driving me mad. Underneath that prim and proper façade of hers, there is a woman begging to be unleashed.

If I wasn’t so hellbent on breaking the chains of pain bound to my boy, I might be inclined to unravel her and show Charlotte what it’s like to ditch the rules and walk on the wild side. Instead, I’m dodging her efforts at making me a decent man.

Willing to do whatever it takes to ensure my son is safe, I’ve agreed to prospect for the Satan’s Knights MC and my pretty little paralegal is about to learn there ain’t nothing noble about a man who is willing to sell his soul to the Devil in the name of revenge.

Excerpt:

“Keep it. A little something to remember me.” “So…are we, like, going to be like…boyfriend and girlfriend?” Her eyes are expectant and suddenly, breathing feels a little harder. Those words make me think of things like explanations and disappointment. I’m not sure that I can be intimate with anyone. And what happens when she finds out about everything? She’ll be horrified. Or when I start back on the show and that whole world crowds in on us… she’ll get tired of it and walk away. Or I’ll be weak and break even more of my own rules and end up hurting her. “Let’s not put any labels on it.” Her eyes lose some of their sparkle, but she smiles gamely. “Well, no matter what we call it, the last few days have been awesome. I know a side of myself that I didn’t before.” “How do you mean?” “I mean, now I know, that given the chance, I can sit down with people I don’t know and have a great conversation. I’ve never been anywhere, but here. And now I’m going to get to travel with you—even though I’ll be seeing it through your phone’s camera. Meeting you was really good luck.”Oh yeah…The cheesecake. I’m ruined. I brush my lips very lightly across hers and smile when she whimpers. God, I’m going to miss her. “I promise, I’ll call.” It doesn’t make my heart race to say it. “Don’t promise, Carter. Those are bound to be broken. Just do it.”Her eyes turn solemn and I see that she and disappointment are intimate friends. I want to break them up.

#BookReview | NORTH: A TALE OF YORE PER THE BURDEN OF THE DWARVES by Lucas Ehrenhaus @EhrenhausL (October 1st 2019 @Authoright )

Thank you very much to Faye @ Authoright and Lucas Ehrenhaus for providing a copy of the book to [K]

The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.

Blurb:

After one of the most decisive warring campaigns in European history between Barbarians and Rome, the sheer possibility of a full-scale Roman invasion into Barbarian lands launches a lifelong recruitment process, which drives to the re-discovery of old mighty forces in the long forgotten North. 

The most apolocalyptic pan-tribal conflict amongst central and northern European natives will ensue.

Review:

This was a well researched book that gave a plausible explanation of the origins of the Scandinavian mythology. I love all history and mythology so this was a must read for me.

The characters relation to each other was clear, despite there being alot of people in this book.

The book itself was well set out and had some lovely colour illustrations of the symbols that were used at the time which were a joy to discover.

Reading this book gave me a better understanding of the mythology and its possible origins. I felt there was enough information given without it being overwhelming. I will definitely be looking out for more of Lucas’ books in the future.
