// REVIEW \\ Sin & Lightning

Sin & Lightning
(Demigod of San Francisco #5)
by K.F. Breene

This left me on such a high that I can’t wait to start the next book – though I’m equally gutted that it’s the last one in the series. I’m not sure if I’m ready to let Lexi, Kieran, Bria, the Six, Daisy and Mordecai go just yet. I was captivated from the first line to the last, sneaking reads in any spare moment I had and reading late into the night to finish it. Of course I instantly regretted not taking my time to savour each moment, regretted not stretching the reading experience out as long as possible. I could live in this world, would live in this world given half a chance.

“Just wait until you consent to taking those cats around with you.” Harding murmured, finally looking away. “You’ll take strange to a whole new level. Death on a pale horse is for losers – give me a cat lady in her pajamas any day. You can ride next to Poseidon’s Demigod on his goldfish steed.”

The complexities of the plot and the sudden twists held me spellbound, every single reveal was totally plausible but I never found myself guessing them because is a master of misdirection, having me look in totally the wrong direction. Lexi’s realisation regarding the “shadow man” at the end was a real shocker, as was the unexpected pronouncement/promise by Magnus. Every mention of Jack still breaks my heart a little and I’m still holding out for some kind of miracle on that one.


I really felt the love between Kieran and Lexi in this one, it was shown in so many little ways. Subtle hints, small gestures, passing touches all built a picture of utter devotion. My favourite scenes were always those that included Daisy and Mordecai, the latter was a little sidelined and I needed more of him, but this pair light up every scene they are in. We also get to meet some great new characters and some heinous villains, all of whom add depth and richness to the story.

“Stop talking or no more phone,” I said through clenched teeth.
“I’m already on phone restriction.”
“Then no more allowance. No more money. Or nice things.”
“Just tell her you’ll pick out her clothes for a week – that’ll shut her up,” Mordecai said.
Dylan looked slightly bewildered. We could derail anyone.

Fast paced, exciting and jam packed with a tumultuous range of emotions I don’t think this book could have been any better.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

One thing has become incredibly clear to Alexis and Kieran, if they hope to last in the arena of Demigods, they’ll need a more robust defense team.
They must take two incredibly dangerous journeys, seeking the prized talents other Demigods would kill for. Except, there is a reason other Demigods don’t have these magical workers–they are as ruthless as they are dangerous, and the last thing they want is to be on a Demigod’s team.
If that isn’t enough, Alexis has received an invitation from Demigod Lydia, the only Hades Demigod who hasn’t openly declared war. She’s talking like they could be allies, but those of Hades cannot be trusted. A trap is just as likely as a handshake. Still, it’s a chance they must take.

Any one of these trips could be their last, but to back down would be the most dangerous of all.

// REVIEW \\ Sin & Spirit

Sin & Spirit
(Demigod of San Francisco #4)
by K.F. Breene

Sometimes you just don’t know whether you want to hug an author or punch them!


I’ve just re-read this, in preparation for reading books #5 and 6. I have to say that everything I wrote in my last review is totally true still. The only thing I could clearly recall was the “consequences” of Jack’s actions during the big fight scene. And it still gutted me even though I was totally prepared for the heartbreak. An amazing book and an even more amazing series.


Original Review –
Not only does K.F. Breene crow bar a humongous amount of plot, funnies, smexy time, action and adventure into this book, she also throws a huge side serving of heart break into it too. It’s one of those books that you shouldn’t start reading just before bedtime, because there is NO WAY you will be able to put it down after only reading a few chapters. No sir-ee, once started this book will sink it’s claws into you so deeply that you won’t want to put it back down until you have read and savoured every single word.


Kieran, Alexis, Daisy, Mordecai and all the other amazing characters that inhabit this world, both real and spirit based are all absolutely amazing. There are so many different people and each one has their own distinct and unique voice in the book. Some are likeable, others immensely loveable, whilst a handful are vile and despicable beings but they all have depth and personality by the bucket full.


I never know where the story will take me, I never even begin to suspect what surprised are in store and what curve balls will be thrown in my direction. I do know that I will love every moment of it, even when I hate what is happening, even when my emotions are being stomped on, because the writing is so fantastic and the story so amazing that I can’t help myself.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Genre – Urban FAntasy

Kieran has stepped up to take his place as the ruler of magical San Francisco. As his girlfriend, that unfortunately means I’m under the magnifying glass. Everything I do is noticed, from how I act to how I style my hair. Most notably, of course, is how little I know about my magic.
The Hades Demigods want me on their team, and they don’t plan to ask nicely. Kieran and I are both under fire. They will kill him to get to me, and they’ll take me by force if necessary. It is essential I learn more of my magic.
With no other options, I do what scares me the most – I summon the last Spirit Walker to help train me. Except, he’s a loose cannon with looser morals and learning spirit is treacherous. I might evade the Demigods only to be lost in spirit forever.

// REVIEW \\ Sugar Princess

Sugar Princess
by Nicolina Martin

Sugar Princess is a very quick read, originally released in the Dirty Daddies 2020 anthology. It’s had a tiny polish up but isn’t really changed from that original story. Despite first appearances this is quite a gentle read, consensual rather than dark. It’s pretty steamy but also has quite a lightness, a sweetness to it.


Whilst Misha isn’t a good man, he is good to and for Carrie. He absolutely put her first, showering her with adoration but also holding her to account and spanking Carrie when she breaks the rules. Because it’s a quick read, there are some timeline jumps, with the emphasis on developing character and building the connection between Misha and Carrie.


Something that stood out very much as a positive to me was that, despite a strong attraction AND Misha moving in with Carrie, they didn’t jump immediately into a sexual relationship. This pair just felt very special and I would absolutely love to see more of them.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Genre – Romance/ Mafia Romance

Tiaras, books, and sweet spankings.
When a scary-looking Russian shows up to threaten me for protection money, then smacks my bottom until it’s pink, and calls me his printsessa, demanding I obey Daddy – what’s a girl to do?
I hide.
But he not only finds me, he takes over my whole damn life, and I find I welcome it every step of the way. With my insides set ablaze by Daddy’s touch, I’m not sure what I want anymore. Misha Mikhailov won’t stay in the US forever, and I’m not leaving my home and my heritage.
‘Dorogaya’, he told me, ‘lies carry consequences.’
And I’m a liar.
I lied about not needing Daddy.
I’m Carrie Ellerbrock – tiara-wearing, self-professed booknerd, proud owner of the Sugar Princess Bookstore – and I’m ready for my punishment.

// REVIEW \\ Used by Cari Silverwood

USED by Cari Silverwood

His palm pressed, his thumb made soft rhythmic indentations on my mons. I hung, caught in a moment of no time, mouth open, unable to stop him, unwilling to, and there was the puzzle.
There was why i had to kill this man – he made me crave what I should not want.

I originally read this prior to reading any of the other Mesmer books, and that definitely impacted my enjoyment of this book. My second read I picked up lots of nuances, breadcrumbs and feels that I had simply missed due to my unfamiliarity with this world.


Isak is still a vile, depraved and evil being, or should I say the monster inside him is. There are very much undertones of Jekyll and Hyde in his character, though he doesn’t seem to bothered by his dark side. Red was either incredibly foolish or very brave in her attempt to rid herself of the Mesmer effects. I can only assume her actions were born out of utter desperation and I found myself very much sympathising with her.


Used was written as an erotic horror and was never meant to have a HEA, but reader pressure and author whim means we shall soon have a follow up book, Isak & Red. This book really does dive into the depths of perversion, degeneracy and corruption and Red is dragged unwillingly into it, doesn’t agree to anything that she is subjected to and yet, in general, enjoys and even welcomes her degradation. Those moments when her body disobeys her mind are equally horrifying, heartbreaking and hot. Oh you bad woman, Ms Silverwood, for making me enjoy the terrible actions enacted on our poor heroine.


I’m very much looking forward to seeing more of Isak & Red, and hoping she gets a little of her own back!

Past the paved driveway and the parked and polished cars, the white wall of his compound cut off the sky. Palms planted at the base of the wall waved in a breeze. I could run and climb the wall.
“No you can’t,” Isak whispered, kissing my neck then pulling me to the blanket, to sit between his outstretched legs. He wrapped his arms around around me.
Kisses were for lovers, not for enemies. How could he simply 
kiss me?
Waves roared and sucked the sand into its embrace. The sun baked my legs. Wearing a bikini, sitting on a beach in a beautiful place, and all I wanted was to be gone from here.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37862157-used
Genre – Erotic Horror


It was a mistake to seek him out. Now she’s caught, again.
“Tell me why I should let you go? Give me reasons,”
he says, as he writes upon her naked skin with his calligraphy pen.
While she struggles to remember why she should be free, he will use her and use her, and twist her around his fingers.
He will make her forget her name, her sanity, and how to be a good girl.
Once upon a time, he was nice.
This is not a romance. This is carnal with graphic sex, dark and depraved, and this is a man to fear.

THIS IS CATEGORISED AS HORROR.
Used is set in the Dark Hearts series world but is a standalone story. The Dark Hearts Trilogy boxset: Wicked Ways, Wicked Weapon, Wicked Hunt. There is also a spin-off novel, Wolfe.

// REVIEW \\ The Dom With A Safeword

The Dom with a Safeword
(Badass Brats #1)
by Cari Silverwood, Sorcha Black and Leia Shaw

Oh my, I’m not crying it’s just a bit of dust in my eye.

She bit her lip hard all the way there, trying not to cry before she was somewhere safe. With a gasp, she rushed into the room. It was empty. A flood of tears erupted, her hands unable to hold them back. Her heart fractured, grinding down into dust. She locked a stall door behind her. The sobs were too loud and she tried to quiet herself – she didn’t want to be the girl that made scenes in public restrooms. It’s okay, it’s okay, she kept telling herself, frantic to calm down before they came looking for her.

The very title hints to the quirky humour in this wonderful, BDSM-themed romance. The book focused more on the emotional and mental aspects of kink, with fairly “gentle” play in most of the sex scenes. Personally I would have liked a few more scenes of them just “being” in one another’s presence, a chance to see the relationship build and their emotions develop. Some of this was done “off page”, and it very occasionally left me playing catch-up on being convinced of the depth of their feelings. However I can’t complain about how the characters were shaped and developed through the story. I’d rather have that personal growth, which is why this still hit 5 stars.


For me, the biggest strength of this book was the realistic feel to the relationship, regardless of it being an MFf one. Something that often leaves me dissatisfied with BDSM romances is how the D/s relationship seems to be the only connection the couple have, or at least the feel that it is more important than the romantic one. The dynamic between Jude, Q and Sabrina always felt natural, always felt real and always felt believable. Each character was distinct, strong, consistent and I loved them all, imperfections included.

She’d always adored the hint of humor in his eyes, and his mouth that turned into a grin at unexpected moments. It made him a man and not just her Dom.

I really appreciated how Jude allowed the girls to be themselves, how these three were a romantic triad as much as a kink one. That being together was the priority, not protocol and calling Jude “Sir”. It felt much more like a sustainable relationship than those found in books by more popular and well-known “BDSM authors”. This was a relationship where there was no attempt to change or alter the sub to fit the Dom(me)’s desires, where the Dom didn’t claim to know the sub(s) better than they knew themselves. (I HATE that trope!!!!!!!) This ticked boxes for me I didn’t even know I had. I have to admit to having previously steered away from ff, but the scenes in this one were incredibly hot.

Q put her hands around Sabrina’s shoulders and tugged her closer. “Thank you for trying to distract Nico.” She lowered her head and kissed Sabrina. Not hard and sexual, just the kiss of a woman appreciating the one who held her heart. As quietly as the sun rising at dawn, he felt peace drift down on them. Magic.

One thing I really do have to mention is how seamlessly the author’s writing and voices blended together. I discovered partway through reading this that each wrote one character, though I still swear blind Cari Silverwood encouraged all the brattiness! I’m pretty certain Q and Sabrina personalities are very much based on the three authors themselves. The story is unlike the majority of books you could read by Ms’ Silverwood and Black. It’s very consensual and contemporary, with quite a gentle feel. That said, it’s full of the snarky humour and great writing that I’ve come to expect from this pair.


We got to see the individual dynamics of the pairs within this triad, and I loved how it never felt as though the third person were being left out. Their presence was felt emotionally and mentally even when they physically could not be present. I bought the box set, so I shall soon be jumping into the follow-up book, and will be interested in seeing how the authors deal with issue of prejudice and family expectations.

When they went out to eat, she could predict what the others would order, they picked off of each other’s plates, and there were so many inside jokes it was like they had their own language. It made her feel important, valued, loved.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Genre – Erotic Menage Romance

Goodreadshttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16054193-the-dom-with-a-safeword

Jude is a Dom on his last summer of freedom before starting the prison sentence that is med school. Q is a bad-ass bi switch who knows what she wants, and for years it’s been her cute, doe-eyed straight friend Sabrina. But the only way into Sabrina’s heart and panties may be with Jude’s fist wrapped in her hair.

Domming the bratty Q and mischievous Sabrina isn’t going to be easy but Jude relishes the challenge. At the end of the summer, will they find a way to stay together when everything is tearing them apart? 

// Review \\ Deadly Dreams, K.J. Sutton

Deadly Dreams
(Fortuna Sworn #3)
by K.J. Sutton

After having stalled two-thirds of the way through, because it felt as though we really weren’t making any headway on the story, I eventually picked this back up and finished reading it. Virtually from the very page I’d left this the plot picked up and I was recaptured by this great series. So much so that I read into the early hours to finish this! Had the entire book been at this level it would have surpassed 5 stars, if more of the book had been at this level I would never have come close to DNF’ing it. I do need to thank Julie of One Book More blog, as she encouraged me to finish this and was 100% correct about that ending!


This is a long book a fair amount of which could (and maybe should) have been edited out, with no real impact on the story. There was a whole sub-plot involving Gwen and the Wild Hunt that was far too long winded for very little forward movement. Given the amount of words devoted to this, it should have driven the plot forward much more significantly. It does leave me wondering if the series should have been planned for 4 or 5 books rather than 6.


On a positive, we saw Fortuna undergo a great deal of personal growth. There were still some rash decisions, but we saw a lot more forethought, more questioning rather than simply believing, more self-awareness. Despite it being heartbreaking to read, I loved how the author handled the trauma that both Fortuna and Collith had endured. There were some beautiful moments between various characters, some incredibly tender scenes, some moving scenes, some terrifying scenes and some confuzzling ones that will no doubt become clear in future books.


I was awestruck by how a throwaway sentence in book #1, by a nameless character, suddenly held great significance. This is a complex story, one where you start unravelling a thread and suddenly have a whole layer seemingly revealed, only for another thread to add a different spin to the story. Relationships and allegiances, that in hindsight had been obvious, were revealed like a slap to the face. Hints, clues, breadcrumbs and red herrings are scattered throughout and you could drive yourself insane trying to follow and unpick them all.


The book spent far to long drifting in aimless circles with little advancement of the plot. So whilst this was not quite as good as the previous two based on the last third I WILL continue the series. I’m fairly certain, at some point, that we will discover that “Laurie” at the end isn’t Laurie, but rather is his more evil and conniving brother. I could be wrong though.


Sadly this also suffered from that very annoying trope of “let’s avoid that simple conversation that would avoid lots of angst, suffering and misconceptions”. There were too many interrupted conversations that remained unfinished, despite the opportunity to complete them. And despite the information being really important. In addition I felt there was too much needless keeping of secrets, which smacks of lazy/lacklustre writing.


This review here https://www.goodreads.com/review/show… by Miriam perfectly sums up my exact thoughts and feelings around this book. Perhaps I’d been too eager for this book, had built up such great expectations that I was bound to be somewhat disappointed. However this series here, The Messenger Chronicles by Pippa DaCosta, is an example of where each book has it’s own story arc, but also drives the overarching storyline too.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Genre – Urban Fantasy

Goodreadshttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/49419243-deadly-dreams

I pushed myself up and stumbled away. But the memory followed me like a bad feeling. It found its way through the shabby mental wall I’d erected. Within seconds, it filled my skull again.
Fortuna has made one too many sacrifices to protect the ones she loves. She no longer knows how to go about her day-to-day life like she’s normal. Like she’s not utterly destroyed. Just a glimpse of Ian O’Connell’s face causes panic attacks, and Collith isn’t much help, considering he’s fighting demons of his own.
Amongst so much inner turmoil, Fortuna’s abilities are still changing. However weak she feels, she knows she’s getting stronger. Fortuna does her best to hide it from other Fallen, because in the world of monsters, strength will get you killed. Well, that and unpredictable panic attacks. Unfortunately for Fortuna, it’s when you’re most vulnerable that enemies—new and old—like to come out of the woodwork…

TRIGGER WARNING: This novel contains scenes or themes of PTSD, rape, sex, violence, and gore.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a wonderful place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be, reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! Everyone is welcome. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn over at The Book Date.

These are some shots from our sunday walk. The last two are very deceptive as their is a busy road that runs just behind the trees that you can see. However with your back to that you have magnificent views across rolling countryside and geodesic fields, though the M1 motorway cuts through it all about 2 miles away.

Last Weeks Books

I started the first full week of 2021 by reading a book off my TBR list. Go me! Only another 300 or so to go, and we all know I’ll have added quite a few more before the end of year but the aim is to read more than I add. I also completed two re-reads, both as preparation for reading follow up books. Used is a novella, so was fairly quick to complete.

Currently Reading

My time is currently split between an arc by a new author and a beta read (which is a follow up to Used.)

Upcoming Reads

This is the final book in K.F. Breene’s Demigod’s of San Francisco urban fantasy series. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them and it’s made me want to do a re-read of her Darkness Series. That will have to wait though as my priority is clearing some of that TBR mountain, before I become buried under the weight of it!


So that’s my reading week, what are your plans?
