Release & Review //\\ FRAUD

Fraud (Antihero Inferno #2) by Lily White

Frauds of the world unite, together forever.


If you don’t love Ivy then you’re not welcome on my team. If they didn’t have some incredible issues of their own, I could be quite jealous of Ava and Emily for getting to be her besties. Ivy shines like a star, dazzling those around her and casting light into the shadows, where it’s not always welcome. Where Luca was strong in an almost foolhardy and naive way, Ivy’s strength is in her very ability to hide in the spotlight, keep a gameface, and lie as good as, if not better than, Fraud himself.


Talking of Gabe, he was a worth adversary to Ivy but was never going to beat the Queen of Deception. Oh he liked to think he had the upper hand, in fact he was allowed to believe that for such a long time, but then men always mistakenly believe that females are the weaker sex. This pair are so well matched, so absolutely perfect for one another and so amazing together, despite the lightning strikes and storms that occur when they are in close proximity – literally. You can feel the air crackling with tension and static electricity when they are in the same room. When they’re alone together – well just make sure you read this somewhere ‘safe’ because the word ‘hot’ doesn’t even come close to describing the heat and chemistry between Ivy and Gabe. They weren’t the only ones sweating!


Whilst I liked Tanner and loved Luca, their story didn’t draw me in the way Gabe and Ivy’s did. I could, and did, step away from that one. This book I couldn’t put down, well I did at 1 am but only because I had to be up at 7 for work. It felt as though Lily might have taken on board comments made about Treachery, though perhaps she already had those explanations planned. It doesn’t matter the how or why, just the fact that in this book I believed in the circle, their fight and their reasons more. I also really enjoyed seeing Tanner get his ass handed to him, that guy still rubs me wrong at times, though he does help Ivy so he’s forgiven, maybe.


This story felt as though it continually moved forward, little secrets and truths slowly revealed, new mysteries unearthed. Just the right speed to keep the tension humming, to drive the pace onwards, to hold me spellbound. We kept hearing about the ‘event’ that caused Ivy to ask Tanner for a favour. I’ll be honest and say that I almost expected to be disappointed by it. Just what could have been so bad but also ‘fixable’. Too many times other authors have set up the same premise of a secret, have built the anticipation and have fallen flat at the last hurdle by revealing a ridiculous, an unbelievable and/or a secret so pathetic it ruins the book. I should never have doubted Lily White‘s ability to pull this off. She is, after all, the Queen of the Messed Up, F’d up, Plot Twist, surprising us at every turn, pulling the rug out from under out feet and twisting the twist. Just remember this book isn’t called Fraud for Gabe alone. it takes a liar to know a liar and to fool a liar.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It doesn’t seem two minutes have passed since I mentioned that surely we couldn’t be in June already. Now we’re well over half way through. 2020 really is the strangest year most of us will ever live through. It’s hard to believe we have been under restrictions for over three months in the UK, they are slowly being relaxed (though not always as slowly as some of us would like). Sadly too many people are behaving as though the threat were over and covid-19 no longer exists. Quick onto happier thoughts!

Thank you to Kathryn at Book Date for hosting this meme. I love joining in each week, even if I do forget to link up to her blog – Doh! For the first time in a LONG time, I’m talking years here, I have a month that isn’t overloaded with arc reads. Even more amazing is that my calendar for July holds just 3 arc reads in total. For too long I was lucky if that was the number for a week! I do know that there will probably be at least 2 or 3 more books that drop on me during the month, from the arc teams I belong to.

The Books I Read Last Week

Reading was very kind to me last week. I enjoyed all four books that I read, 2 were arcs and 2 were re-reads ready to complete the series this week, hopefully.

Currently Reading

I’m reading the two books concurrently because my mind feels like a flitting butterfly at present and it refuses to settle on one book!

Please Let Me Get These Read This Week

The first two are deadlined arcs, the other two are arcs that I really should have completed by now, but have been struggling to get too or to settle with. That is totally due to me and not the writing, I usually enjoy reading both of the authors.


So that’s my reading week. What are your plans? Are you tackling that TBR mountain? Too busy to read much (boo to whatever is making that true)? Enjoying re-reads, or searching for something new? Whatever your plans, keep safe, be happy and enjoy your books!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Last weeks treasures (and trash)

I beta read several chapters of one book, scenes and chunks from another book and re-read a 2/3rds completed book because the author had added a few more chapters. Honestly you go weeks with no beta requests and then get three all at the same time!

What’s on my ereader at the moment.

This continues Jenny and Mark’s story that began in the 6 book ‘Pony Tales’ series. However you can read this (and the rest of the trilogy) without having read those. You won’t have all the background information at first, but the author does feed in anything you do need to know.

Planned reads for this week.

Velvet Caress is a re-read, but it’s so long ago I can’t remember many details. I never read Velvet Collar, so I’m really looking forward to completing the series. Fraud is an arc and part of a very complex and multi book series. Each story is stand alone but with a subplot that runs throughout the whole series.

Review & Release //\\ Treachery


Treachery (Antihero Inferno #1)

by Lily White


Release: May 27, 2020

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Goodreads: http://bit.ly/TreacheryonGoodreads

Photographer: Michelle Lancaster

Cover Designer: Lori Jackson Designs



Boy was this something else, not perfect, but still an amazing read.


I had already read and reviewed the first quarter of the book, which was originally released as a prequel. This time I skimmed over that part but my thoughts on it can be found here Treachery Prequel.


I’m also going to point you towards this review here Ꮗ€♫◗☿ ❤️ ilikebooksbest.com ❤️’s Review as it perfectly captures how I felt about this book. When I was struggling to connect to Tanner, when his arrogance was almost too much and I was considering DNF’ing Treachery (yep, I went from that point to giving it 4 stars!!!!) I read this review, which not only resonated with me but gave me the impetus to complete the book. Thank you Ꮗ€♫◗☿, not only did it enable me to finish the story but I LOVED this book by the end.


So how does a book go from being an almost DNF to almost 5 stars? Well in the case of this it has the brilliant writing of Lily White. It has characters that, love the or hate them, have personality. It has a twisty plot filled with scorching passion and devious manipulations. The last third of this was, without doubt at least a 5 star read but in all honesty and fairness I couldn’t give it that rating given my initial feelings.


Firstly it took me a long, long time to like Tanner. A very long time. Too long. He was just too much of an arrogant ass, too self-centred, too uncaring. The ‘excuse’ that he has been raised to be manipulative, that he hadn’t had loving parents, didn’t wash with me. Plenty of people use that experience to become a better person, to not repeat the sins of their fathers.


Tanner hated everything about his Dad but I couldn’t see how he was any different, in the long run. He was selfish to an extreme with, at one point, no redeemable qualities. I really wasn’t sure how the author would ever turn my dislike of him around, but my god she did, and then some. That alone indicates just how amazing her writing is.


The story starts with our protagonists at Yale, where they are all completing graduate courses. First of all I suffered from having to suspend my disbelief at how powerful these nine men supposedly were. At how everybody other than Luca succumbed to that power, became ensnared within the web these guys had spun. Nope, just not buying that, not for one minute. There was an over emphasis on how different Luca was in her behaviour, and I get that maybe it was to make her stand out, but it was another thing that was hard for me to believe.


Then there was the number of times Tanner mentally threatened that their fathers’ days were numbered. At Yale they were toeing the line because daddy was paying their way. Yet three years later, and financially independent, they still hadn’t cut those ties. How they built this multi-million (billion?) dollar business so quickly wasn’t explained, nor how it continued to thrive when none of them seemed to spend much time there. Tanner even bragged about letting others do all the work, if only running a business really was that easy!


Finally, whilst a lot of their manipulation, and lies, felt possible, there were instances when far too many stars needed to align in the right order, at the right time, for their plans to work. The thing is these plans relied on people choosing one particular action where that outcome was not guaranteed. Where independent thoughts and actions could have thrown all those careful plans awry. And let’s face it Luca never follows the expected path. The repeated need to suspend disbelief is where my biggest issues occurred, the thing that made me want to close the book and leave it behind. BUT I didn’t do that, and thank goodness because boy did this turn out to be one heck of a ride. I couldn’t read the last third, or so, quickly enough. There were red herrings and twists galore and I don’t think I managed to call even one of them.


Luca kept me in this for quite a while, her strength, her fight, her determination not to be manipulated, her ability to throw a spanner in the works and to ruffle Tanner’s feathers. She learns from her mistakes and whilst she plays a dangerous game, she doesn’t have many options. If Tanner wanted her help, her support and ultimately her love then he needed to earn it. Not by manipulating her, not by backing her into a corner and demanding it, forcing it, but by opening up, showing her the truth and letting her choose.


It takes a long time, and Gabriel’s intervention, for Tanner to realise his lies, his tricks and his manouverings would not work on Luca. To give her the FULL respect she deserved and to allow her the freedom of deciding her own fate and future. And my oh my, when Tanner decides to do something he puts everything into it. He 100% earned her trust and loyalty. He worked for and deserved her forgiveness. He laboured for her love and there was nothing else to do but forgive him and accept him. Best of all was that in many ways he didn’t change, he was still the same arrogant, full of himself, manipulative bastard, but not with Luca. In fact I’m fairly certain he would kill for her, literally.

So in summary TL;DR after suspending some of your disbelief and ignoring what an annoying arse Tanner is, this is a cracking read with a fantastic heroine and a hero who does eventually earn her forgiveness.

Excerpt:
Some monsters are frightening because they kill and maim without remorse. Some are scary because they get in your head and make you doubt everything you believe you know about the world around you. 
Tanner is terrifying because it takes nothing at all for him to set his sights on you, to ignite his anger and draw his attention. And instead of simply destroying you physically or mentally, he is the type of monster who will alter your entire world and leave you struggling to breathe while watching it all come tumbling down. 
He leaves you alive to witness the chaos. He leaves you drowning while he storms off, satisfied that there isn’t so much as a shred of what you once had left for you to cling onto.
Maybe monster is the wrong word. 
It’s too simple. 
Too ordinary. 
Other men are monsters. 
Lesser men are monsters. 
Not Tanner.
Tanner is a maelstrom
He frightens me now even more than he had at Yale. I try to lie to myself and swear the fear has everything to do with the money I will lose. 
But there’s something else, something deeper, something shadowed and burning with fierce carnal desire that lingers like a fog within my core. 
Memories collide with the present, the aching I feel every time Tanner is nearby. 
Because it hadn’t been easy to avoid him so many years ago. 
It had been a fight, a war, a bloody battle occurring inside me.

Six For Sunday


Six Book Series you can’t wait to get into
or Series you’re dying to read


Six For Sunday is a meme hosted each week by A Little But A Lot. May’s theme is series, with the prompt this week being a series you are looking forward to reading or want to get into.


There are so many I could choose for this. I have The Fellowship of the RingThe Two Towers and The Return of the King, by J.R.R. Tokien sat unread on my bookshelves, along with Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay Trilogy. However as a HUGE advocate of indie authors, I’m going to feature some of the back lists that I have on my radar but haven’t yet succeeded in reading.


The shameful truth about my list is that I actually own many of the books mentioned, and have done for some considerable time. On a positive note I HAVE started making headway through clearing books from my “bought-it-so-read-it” list. So at least things are now moving in the right direction!


Due to their obsession with censorship, Amazon banned the individual books of Marissa Honeycut’s Life of Anna series it does, however, still sell the ‘box set’ book. They also refuse to sell the first book of Lily White’s Masters series, that book is available on Smashwords and the author’s website.

Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.
Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck.

The Warrior Chronicles by KF Breene

Genre – Fantasy Romance

It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom which has been stolen.
Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she’s been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn’t believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.
It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey.

But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.
War is coming. The only choice becomes: Which side do you choose?

Masters Series by Lily White

Genre – Dark Romance/ Dark Erotica

I am a Master.
You must know this fact to understand my story.
I capture women.

I break them down.
And I rebuild them.
If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.
I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.
Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.
I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.
And I am – in no way – a good man.
I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.
She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.
She was wrong.
