Shades of Sydney Review

Syd1

SHADES OF SYDNEY by Brittney Coon

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Blurb - Coastal

Sydney West enjoys sampling summer boys, but this year, one refuses to be a one-night stand…

Twenty-one-year-old Sydney doesn’t believe in relationships. Her parents’ toxic divorce has taught her love is nothing but a sinister fairytale. So every summer she parties, hooks up, abandons her lover before dawn, and repeats.

That is until she meets gorgeous local surfer Jason King at the beach…

When Jason fails to flirt—or even give her a second glance—she decides something must be wrong with him, and it’s safer to stay away. But when Sydney and Jason’s best friends hook up and become Malibu’s hottest couple, they are forced to spend more time together than either of them cares for.

Armed with a sharp tongue, Sydney works to keep Jason at bay…

In a moment of weakness, Sydney lets her guard down and confides in Jason, realizing he’s more than just a hot guy—he’s also a friend. And when Sydney’s need for a summer boy results in her falling into bed with Jason, despite her better judgment, she runs away from him by morning.

The problem is, he won’t accept being another one-night stand, and will do anything to prove…

‘Nothing interesting happens in the podunk town of Lamison Point

—until a freak show rolls through…’

Mystery Thriller Blurb

When a traveling carnival stops in the sleepy countryside, sixteen-year-old Josie Crowley is psyched to go with her new friend, Freya. But what started out as a fun-filled night of games, candied apples, and ferris wheel rides quickly spirals into a gut-wrenching encounter with one of the carnival attractions.

Once the excitement is over, Lamison is missing one of its residents…

When Freya is nowhere to be found, Josie suspects the carnival has something to do with her disappearance. Her goal to track down the elusive show leads to an alarming revelation—there is no record of it ever existing. And as she digs deeper, Josie is led to a mysterious town with a tainted past—Flocksdale.

Buried in Flocksdale’s sick, twisted history is where Josie may find the truth…

Creepy clowns, disfigured freaks, and a terrifying haunted house are the least of Josie’s problems…now she has to deal with a group of real-life monsters, otherwise known as the evil Garrett family and new, rising generation of hell-bound freaks.

If Josie is pulled into their world, she may become another member of a carnival of dead girls, where she goes in, and never comes out…

Poppy - Author Bio

Besides my family, my greatest love in life is books. Reading them, writing them, holding them, smelling them…well, you get the idea. I’ve always loved to read, and some of my earliest childhood memories are me, tucked away in my room, lost in a good book. I received a five dollar allowance each week, and I always — always — spent it on books. My love affair with writing started early, but it mostly involved journaling and writing silly poems. Several years ago, I didn’t have a book to read so I decided on a whim to write my own story, something I’d like to read. It turned out to be harder than I thought, but from that point on I was hooked. My first and second books were released by Sarah Book Publishing: This Is Not About Love and Grayson’s Ridge. I’m a total genre-hopper. Basically, I like to write what I like to read: a little bit of everything! I reside in Floyds Knobs, Indiana with my husband, three children, and massive collection of books. I have a degree in psychology and worked as a counselor.

The Braille Club Unbound FULL WRAP

Mystery Thriller My Review

‘Unbound’ solves the question left unanswered at the end of ‘The Braille Club’ #1 but nothing is what it seems in this story, or at the Braille club, so be ready for plenty of shocks.
Benedict and Siena traumatic relationship continues, will their love be enough to weather the storm, or does it need a little sensual focus?
‘Unbound’ reveals Guy’s story and it’s so hot and naughty, what did your mother tell about the quiet ones?
The introduction of new Braille club members, complete with their own particular hang-ups and emotional baggage, keep the series fresh and interesting. Niven is perhaps the most damaged and her past life, threatens anyone she trusts with devastating results.
Nick lurks in the background, still menacing, despite his incarceration. The story interweaves new and old characters together in a realistic way and manages to keep the suspense level as hot as the erotic love scenes.
The end tempts you to read book 3, which promises more characters, more about the Braille Club and hopefully Nick’s karma.

Feature Friday: The Braille Club – J.A. Kerr – 5* Review and Spotlight

BC2

THE BRAILLE CLUB by J.A. Kerr
Publisher – LIMITLESS PUBLISHING
Genre – Contemporary Romance
Poppy - Blurb
Welcome to the Braille Club, where blindfolds are mandatory and members play sensual games of pleasurable endurance. Three couples take part in this exclusive, secret club for very different reasons…with very different results.

Benedict Harrison was a master of detachment…

Benedict’s first experience with the Braille Club changed his life forever when a mysterious woman reawakened his emotions and his passion. He encounters the darkly erotic Siena Waters again, and they begin a tumultuous affair and a business partnership, but what will happen if the true nature of their relationship is discovered?

Gabriella Ballantyne’s marriage is in trouble…

Her husband Max has grown cold, and Gabriella seeks out the Braille Club and its decadent delights in an effort to reawaken their hearts and strengthen their marriage. But when she presents him with his own membership card, she sees only revulsion in his eyes. Gabriella must use everything she’s learned from the club in a last-ditch effort to reconnect with Max and resurrect their love.

Abbey Marshall needs an escape from her cheating husband…

Abbey begins sensory lessons at the Braille Club, hoping it will help her regain control of Steve and prevent his straying. When the unthinkable happens, she is consumed with the need to learn the identity of Steve’s latest mistress. Left reeling and with her sanity in jeopardy, a chance visit from her husband’s former teammate might be her last chance to find the answers she needs.

At the Braille Club, the elite membership walks in the dark in order to find the light…they need to be blind before they can see. They’re ready—are you?

Flowers - My Review
Exclusivity, exploitation of sensory deprivation, to heighten sexual pleasure and non- negotiable rules define ‘The Braille Club’ but sensually written erotic romance is only one facet of this complex story.
The club’s owner is an enigma. Benedict Harrison has many of the personality traits of the modern day Sherlock Homes. He is frighteningly intelligent but emotionally cut off from the people and world around him because of a traumatic childhood.
The club’s creation mirrors Benedict and Siena’s relationship and psychological suspense merges with the erotic romance.
The stories of the newest club members add another dimension to this interesting book. I loved Abbey and Gabriella, strong women who have a unique, personal battle to reassert their identity.
The characters are complex and reflect the celebrity culture that dominates the 21st century.
Erotic romance meets psychological suspense with page turning results. I’m looking forward to book 2.

The Parks Series – Lilly James – Feature Friday- 5* Reviews

Adult Read
The Parks Series Books 1&2 by Lilly James

 DENYING MR. PARKS 

Amazon 

Amazon UK

Poppy - Blurb

Evelyn Banks is her own worst enemy…

A recovering alcoholic, the key to Evelyn’s continuing sobriety is to remain focused and controlled. She finally has her life on track with a new job at a law firm, but her world is shaken when she meets the firm’s gorgeous, charming, dominant CEO.

 Wade Parks asks for only one thing—to be obeyed…

Wade’s perfect world is one of discipline and obedience. When he encounters his firm’s new employee, he begins a cat-and-mouse game in his pursuit of the feisty and independent Evelyn, determined to break through her cold demeanor and give her the discipline he’s sure she craves.

Evelyn is willing to submit to his dominance, but her emotions are another matter…

 Both of Evelyn’s parents were addicts, incapable of giving her the slightest bit of affection, and she’s not equipped to deal with the rush of powerful emotions her relationship with Mr. Parks unleashes. So she turns to the only solace she knows—numbing her feelings with alcohol.

He sees past Evelyn’s flaws, but some secrets hit too close to home…

 Just as Evelyn’s heart begins to thaw, Mr. Parks is reminded of his own troubled upbringing and he pulls away, leaving her feeling abandoned.

 But another very real danger is lurking, and Evelyn might be very wrong about the source of the threat…

Can she be saved by denying Mr. Parks?

Or is submitting to him the only way to save them both?

Flowers - My Review

This is a well written erotic romance with complex characters and vivid imagery. The dominant- subservient relationship that builds between Wade and Evey is a common theme in erotic romance but theirs has many subtle twists that keep the reader guessing.
Brilliantly created sexual tension created between the two main characters leads to heated erotic encounters, which are graphic but underscored with emotion.
Evey hides her damage and vulnerability behind a tough facade. She’s foul-mouthed, totally without a filter and avoids human interaction whenever possible. Yet I liked her. Her motto is attack first and when you discover some her past secrets it’s easy to understand why.
Wade is undeniably attractive physically, but his treatment of Evey made me cringe at times. He takes advantage of her introverted nature and low self-esteem.
The ending is sad and makes you glad there’s another book in the series because Evey deserves so much more.

ADDICTED TO MR. PARKS

Amazon

Amazon UK

Poppy - Blurb
Evelyn Banks is alone, and she has only herself to blame. 

Overwhelmed by her feelings for the enigmatic, dominant Wade Parks, she pushed him—and everybody else—away and drowned her torment in alcohol. Now at rock bottom, she needs help…and the only help she’ll accept is from Mr. Parks.

Mr. Parks has done the unthinkable…he’s fallen in love. 

Beneath his completely controlled surface, his heart is in turmoil. Despite his inner conflict, he’s committed to helping Evelyn regain her emotional equilibrium and giving her the life she deserves.

Evelyn has more secrets, and one could be a deal-breaker. 

One dark chapter from Evelyn’s past is uncomfortably similar to Mr. Parks’ own, leaving him at a loss as to how to connect with her in the only way he knows. He structures his life around dominance and submission, but how can he use discipline on someone who has been so broken?

 If Mr. Parks can eliminate a looming danger, maybe he can save them both. 

 He’s determined to find the culprit threatening Evelyn, but when his own dark past is revealed, his illusion of a perfect life is shattered.

Their love has become an addiction, but when the fantasy is stripped away to reveal their hidden truths, will love be enough to hold them together?

Flowers - My Review

The second book in the series starts at an all time low in Evey’s life, as she constantly battles with her addictive personality and lack of self worth. Wade redeems himself as this story progresses. Seen through Evey’s eyes he is her salvation but his many hidden secrets make you doubt whether this true. More secrets from Evey’s past are menacing and make this story suspenseful.
Erotic love scenes define this story and they become increasingly darker as Evey’s dependency on Wades grows.
Particularly noteworthy is Evey meeting Wade’s family and associates. Deep secrets revealed, illuminate Wade’s actions but do they excuse his behaviour? He shares more with Evey than expected but as his walls tumble down his emotional instability threatens their future. Another poignant ending makes reading the final book in this series a must.
