#Review | #BookReview | HIS TRUE QUEEN by Jodi Ellen Malpas @JODIELLENMALPAS (August 7th 2018) @EverAfterRom

Blurb:

The breathtaking conclusion of The Smoke & Mirrors Duology.

A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.

A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false façade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.

But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.

Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.

Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?

Review:

The second novel in Jodi Ellen Malpas’ Smoke and Mirrors duology is everything we have come to expect from this amazing author. A tale of two lovers, who are fighting against all the odds to be together. 

In true romance style the path to being together for our lead characters isn’t plain sailing, with everything stacked against them it’s hard for the reader to see how things might work out. JEM keeps us guessing, keeps us reading, eager to see what will be become of these two beautiful people. 

Once again you become invested in these characters, eager for Adeline and Josh to figure out their differences, see the damage being inflicted from around them and stand together to face it. Sure, in our minds we believe they can do, that they can face and overcome the adversity but with each turn of the page it becomes harder to see. 

The novel is another foray into the JEM world, another set of characters that you take into your heart and come to cherish. It took me a long time to bring myself to read the second and last book in this duet, but I am glad I picked this back up, thoroughly enjoying the read, I could not put the book down. 

Another JEM treasure has been added to the bookshelves, a shelf that is shaping up to hold some of my all-time favourites novels and one that I cannot wait to add to in the future. 

Here’s hoping Jodi Ellen Malpas never stops writing, we need her work in the world, her characters to devour and cherish.

#Review | LEAVE ME BREATHLESS by Jodi Ellen Malpas @JodiEllenMalpas (November 5th 2019) @jennw23

Thank you very much to Social Butterfly and Jodi Ellen Malpas for providing a copy of the book to *M*

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

Blurb:

Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn’t only surprised, he’s also instantly intrigued.
Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.

Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store…and hiding too many secrets. It’s why she won’t let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn’t even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk

Review:

As you would expect from a Jodi Ellen Malpas novel, this is a rollercoaster of emotions, one that will leave you breathless. 

We meet our characters at a time if personal change, where they’re taking life into their own hands and making the best of it. I read this at a time that for me, on a personal level was also taking my life into my own hands. Preparing to take a huge risk in my career, reading Hannah and Ryan’s story only emphasised the importance of following your own heart. Here are two beautiful characters, both physically and spiritually, who draw you into their own little paradise. 

Whilst they create a haven for each other, JEM has done just that for her readers. Letting us take a nose dive into her vivid and brilliant imagination, so that we can explore these relationships without even leaving the house. It is the love she has as a writer for these characters that draws you, that wraps you up in their bubble and makes it so you never want to leave. 

I laughed, I cried, I swooned and I fell hard for these characters. And not just Ryan and Hannah but the other characters as well. Because one of the things I love about JEM is that she knows how to create the best side characters, the funny roommate and quirky neighbour. No matter what happens in one of her novels, it is the characters that compel me the most. 

I loved getting to know Ryan and Hannah, the dual narrative of the novel working very well at balancing the story out. Hearing both sides of the story, witnessing their descent into the never ending world of JEM was pure selfish indulgence. Because reading this book, at time when your personal world feels in chaos, was the perfect anchor in the storm. An escape from the stresses of everyday and getting lost in the “wonderland” that JEM creates. 

I cannot wait to add the paperback to my JEM shelf on my bookcase, it is the perfect addition.
