All I wanted to do was love her.
 
I couldn’t break her when she’d finally been put back together . . . when she was finally mine.
 
I was a coward, a bigger a**hole than her ex-husband, a more selfish pr*ck than her brother.
 
But London didn’t know that.
 
She only saw me as the man who would give her the world, the man who owned her heart.
 
And even though the confession burned the tip of my tongue and begged to be spit out and set free, I couldn’t do it.
 
Not yet . . . I needed to hold on to this lie for just a little while longer to keep her safe.

My Review:
4 Stars
Take My Breath Away by Faith Andrews is book Two in the Every Breath series.  This counties the story of London and Sam, so you should read the first book ‘Every Breath You Take’ to fully enjoy this one.  This book does pick up where the last one left off.  London is dealing with finding out secrets, along with her ex husband and brother putting pressure on her so they can basically get what they want.  Sam is dealing with the surgery and the fallout form actions that have been taken.
We see them dealing with their issue and working to get through the pain to find their happy ending.

Tainted by Amanda Cowen

Review:


Tainted
Amanda Cowen
(Wyatt #1)
Publication date: June 22nd 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Rhys Wyatt is as arrogant as he is beautiful, and Ivy Bishop has been infatuated with him forever. The night Ivy makes her move, it ends horribly, leaving her utterly heartbroken.
Three years later, Ivy is dating Blaine Wyatt; Rhys’s loving and tender younger brother. With Rhys and their past somewhat out of her mind, everything about her relationship with Blaine seems perfect. But when Blaine leaves Ivy alone all summer; neither of them anticipated Rhys to return, or him and Ivy to be stuck living under the same roof…
Rhys never believed Ivy would be all grown up and everything he’s ever wanted – gorgeous, perfectly alluring, and an infuriatingly tempting beauty he has to keep his hands off of. But the more they try to resist each other, the more intense their urges become, until one night changes everything, and Wyatt brothers will never be the same.

My Review:
4 Stars
Tainted by Amanda Cowen is book One in the Wyatt Series.  This is the story of Rhys Wyatt and Ivy Bishop.
Ivy has always had a crush on Rhys but the one time she attempts to make a move it doesn’t take him long to turn her away.  That was a few years ago but now she is dating his younger brother Blaine who always seem to like her.  When Blaine goes away for the summer it seems Rhys comes back into the picture for her. 
This was a good love triangle story.

Once Upon a Scandal by Madison Faye

Review:

 
 
 
Title: Once Upon a Scandal
Series: Royally Screwed #6
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
Release Date: October 1, 2018
Blurb
 
Once upon a time, a nobody met a prince.
Then she met his best friend, a second prince.
Then she learned they like to share, and that’s when things got interesting.
That’s when things got downright scandalous.
 
My life has never been a fairytale. Absent parents, a grandmother gone too soon, and a job working the kitchens for the most heinous bitch in the Kingdom of Bandiff.
 
But that’s before I sneak into the hottest royal ball on the planet. That’s before I waltz right into them.
 
The McDermott Princes. Princes, plural. There’s two of them – both gorgeous beyond belief, alpha as hell, and more tempting than sin. Both with their eyes on me and both with that look that says that I’m theirs.
 
Two princes, one baker. This might sound like too many cooks in the kitchen, but they say they like to share. They say they’ll tear their whole kingdom down to make me theirs. They say they want to make me their Queen.
 
Pretty soon, breaking into a royal ball is the least of my problems.
 
This is a disaster waiting to happen. It’s filthy, and oh-so-wrong. It’s a royal scandal of epic proportions, and I’m right in the middle of it.
 
…I’m right in the middle of them.
 
Maybe this is a fairytale after all. Ever heard of the cook who found a crown? How about two crowns? Two big, dominant, mouthwatering, pulse-quickening crowns.
 
I’ve never found a happy ever after. Now, I think I’m about to find two of them.

My Review:
4 Stars
Once Upon a Scandal by Madison Faye is book 6 in the Royally Screwed series.  This is the story of Vi, Adam and Shane.  I have read the previous book, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.  Vi, Adam and Shane were all immediately attracted to one another.  Adam and Shane are royalty but they know that they want Vi and she to them. 
This was true to Ms. Faye’s writing of hot encounters where instant love happens with some hot alpha males….my favorite fantasy romance.  Her writing is my quick escape from life when I need a quick break.
