Ruby Rose declared me the enemy before I had a chance to defend myself.

I may be an attorney, but this girl had appointed herself judge and jury.   

And I’d never minded a good verbal sparring.

There was a comfort in going to battle against the evil queen.

Maybe it was just the recognition of one damaged soul to another.

But the more we fought—the more I craved her.

Until our arguing turned into a bit of a wager.

One I was determined to win.

One time. Sixty seconds. A secret only we would share.

I’d work my magic and she’d declare me the winner.

I’d gloat, she’d sulk—that was my plan.

She was determined to prove me wrong.

But from the minute we crossed the line, there was no turning back.

She was so far under my skin I couldn’t think straight.

Feeling things that I’d never felt before was one thing.

But knowing the clock was ticking was another.

Ruby Rose may have given me more than sixty seconds, but she wasn’t offering forever.

And now my world doesn’t work without her in it.

But how do I convince her to stay, when she already has one foot out the door?

Spoiler-free Review of Wild River:

Wild River (Magnolia Falls #2)Wild River by Laura Pavlov
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild River by Laura Pavlov is the second book in the Magnolia Falls series. Laura cranked up the heat and the feels in the second installment of this small-town romance series of interconnected standalones. We meet Ruby Rose, who returns home to Magnolia Falls to care for her dad and run his bar. She meets River and immediately dislikes her dad’s handsome lawyer. Sparks fly between the two, and Ruby and River develop this love-hate attraction that leads to a no-strings-attached relationship. They promise not to catch feelings for each other until they do.

I loved being back in Magnolia Falls and hanging with the Ride or Die crew. This addictive, spicy, and sweet romance did not disappoint. Laura’s small-town romances are my cat nip, and I can’t get enough of them. I can’t wait to read Kingston and Saylor’s story in Forbidden King on June 6th. 

Meet Laura:

Laura Pavlov writes sweet and sexy contemporary romance that will make you both laugh and cry. She is happily married to her college sweetheart, mom to two awesome almost-grown kids, and dog-whisperer to one temperamental yorkie and one wild bernedoodle. Laura resides in Las Vegas where she is living her own happily ever after. Be sure to sign up for updates on new releases. Laura loves to hear from readers!

Good Half Gone by Tarryn Fisher Kindle Crack


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wives

Iris Walsh saw her twin sister, Piper, get kidnapped—so why does no one believe her?

Iris narrowly escaped her pretty, popular twin sister’s fate as a teen: kidnapped, trafficked and long gone before the cops agreed to investigate. With no evidence to go on but a few scattered memories, the case quickly goes cold.

Now an adult, Iris wants one thing—proof. And if the police still won’t help, she’ll just have to find it her own way; by interning at the isolated Shoal Island Hospital for the criminally insane, where secrets lurk in the shadows and are kept under lock and key. But Iris soon realizes that something even more sinister is simmering beneath the surface of the Shoal, and that the patients aren’t the only ones being observed…

Good Half GoneGood Half Gone by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reached the ending of Good Half Gone by Tarryn Fisher, and all I could picture was Tarryn laughing, knowing that she 'got us' with that clever ending. The story unravels slowly as we get to know Iris, her kidnapped twin sister Piper, and their grandmother. Iris is desperate for answers about her sister and will stop at nothing to get the answers and proof she needs about her missing half. This suspense thriller is going to suck you in and spit you out. When I hit the last page, I found myself thinking WTH and reread the ending twice. Then I went back to look for little breadcrumbs that Tarryn artfully sprinkled throughout this twisted and dark story. I told you she's clever. Nothing is what it seems. Go in blind and wait for the story to unfold.  Bravo Tarryn!

Ruby Tears ebook Kindle Crack

“Ten thousand dollars.

That pitiful sum changed my entire life.

It bought my entire life.

A measly ten thousand dollars, given to my boyfriend by a monster to fuck me.

He took it.

The monster took me.

And I never saw freedom again.”

I’m the bastard son of a monster.

My other half-blooded siblings have their own demons…but me?

I truly have the devil inside.

I try to be good.

To do my best to ignore the deep, dark, despicable urges.

But every day it gets harder.

I thought family could help.

I reached out to my infamous half-brother, Q begging for his secrets to stay tamed.

Instead, he gave me an ultimatum to prove I’m not like our father.

Infiltrate The Jewelry Box: a trafficking ring of poor unfortunate souls, kill the Master Jeweler, free the Jewels, and don’t lose my rotten soul while trying.

Only problem is…my initiation into this exclusive club is earning a Jewel all of my own.

She sparkles like diamonds, bleeds like rubies, and bruises as deep as emeralds.

She’s mine to break.

I can’t refuse.

If I want to prove to my half-brother that I’m not like our sire, I have to sink into urges I’ve always fought, plunge into madness, and lose myself so deeply into sin that the only one who will be breaking is me.

Spoiler-free review: 

Ruby Tears (The Jewelry Box, #1)Ruby Tears by Pepper Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pepper Winters is back with one of her darkest books to date. If you read Tears of Tess or any of Pepper's books in the Monsters in the Dark series, you will devour Ruby Tears (The Jewelry Box Book 1). Ruby Tears is unputdownable and utterly addictive. I couldn't put this book down if I tried. This dark and twisted captive suspense laid the foundation for a dysfunctional romance between Henri (Q's half-brother from Monsters in the Dark) and Ily, his captive. Will Henri save her, or will she become collateral damage in Henri's depraved mission of mercy? You never know what will happen in Pepper's books, and I love that unpredictability.

I knew going into this book that it would end with a cliffhanger. Pepper left us with a jaw-dropping banger of an ending. I understand that some readers like to wait until all the books are out to start a new series. Don't wait to start this one. You'll need some recovery time after reading this book. I can't wait to read Emerald Bruises (The Jewelry Box Book 2) when it releases.

Ruby Tears is not for everyone. I highly suggest you check out Peppers's author notes if you have triggers.
