Review: Honey Cut by Sierra Simone

Honey Cut by Sierra Simone by Sierra Simone is LIVE! Check out my spoiler-free review below. This MMF review is HOT!

Honey Cut by Sierra Simone book cover

Blurb: 

I have one job in this arranged marriage, and that’s to seduce my husband.

It should be easy; I’m the heiress to a transatlantic fortune, bred and raised to make a good match.  I’ve spent a lifetime building up my endurance, my discipline, my dedication to my god and my church. The danger lies in falling for the devil who put his ring on my finger—a mistake I made years ago, and can’t afford to make again.

There is one more danger: handsome and green-eyed, emotionally wounded.  Tristan Thomas, former soldier and my new husband’s bodyguard.  A hero who stole my heart with salt-soaked kisses on the sea.

But Lyonesse is not like other places, and this isn’t like other marriages. Soon Tristan, Mark, and I are tangled in a knot of vicious jealousy and gorgeous wickedness, where suspicion is an aphrodisiac and secrets and vows are one and the same.

And there is something far darker at play than my real purpose, than the machinations of the Church I serve.  Darker even than the twisted longings of my own heart. Because my husband has secrets of his own, and the reason he’ll stop at nothing to possess me could slice my soul deeper than the honeysuckle-hilted knife he gave me once upon a time.

Because when it comes to Mark Trevena and his games, the first cut is more than the deepest—it’s the sweetest

And he always leaves you begging for more…



Spoiler-free review of Honey Cut


Honey Cut (Lyonesse, #2)Honey Cut by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Honey Cut (Lyonesse Book 2) by Sierra Simone is a must-read. This book transcends the four "s's" of romance—smutty, sexy, spicy, and steamy. Honey Cut is much more than just a spicy book. It's a masterpiece where Sierra weaves an intricate web of secret societies, unrequited love, and kink in this MMF romance. This book is lyrical sex dust, tugging at your heart while heating up your Kindle screen. Honey Cut's cliffhanger ending left me begging for more. I highly recommend reading the Lyonesse trilogy in order. You don't want to miss Mark, Tristan, and Isolde's debaucherous backstory in Salt Kiss (Lyonesse Book 1). Read this book in public if you dare. Chef's kiss!

Forbidden King by Laura Pavlov Kindle Romance



Synopsis:
From USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestselling Author Laura Pavlov, comes an all-new Small Town, Brother’s Best Friend, Found Family Standalone Romance.


Saylor Woodson is the one girl I can’t have, and the only girl I want.
She’s my best friend’s little sister, and completely off limits.
We have a history, a connection―one that no one else knows about. One that I’ve tried hard to forget.

I've kept my distance for years, which was easy because she’d been away at school.
Now she’s home, and she’s everywhere I turn.
And the way that I want her is unexplainable.
She’s sunshine on a cloudy day.

I do everything in my power to keep my distance, because her brother is my best friend. My family. But the pull is too strong.
I want to claim her and keep her and make her mine.
So, we cross that line in the sand―slowly at first.
Until I’m drowning in this girl and can’t find my way up for air.

Betrayal runs deep, and guilt hangs over me like a dark cloud.
Except I can’t seem to walk away, no matter how hard I try.
Because now that I’ve had a taste of forever, I’m willing to risk everything to keep it.

Can we weather the storm that’s coming for us?

Only time will tell.

Spoiler-free review:

Forbidden King (Magnolia Falls #3)Forbidden King by Laura Pavlov
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I laughed. I cried! I loved this book so much. Forbidden King by Laura Pavlov is small-town romance solid gold! Forbidden King is the third book in the Magnolia Falls series of interconnected standalones. Kingston, a notorious player, has always been attracted to Saylor, his best friend's sister, but he would never dream of acting on his feelings.  Saylor has always harbored feelings for Kingston and finally decides to push him to explore the possibility of more. Their attraction is undeniable, and Saylor finds herself falling for her own Forbidden King. The two navigate their nuclear chemistry while dealing with their emotional baggage.

This book checked off all my romance-loving boxes with the perfect blend of sweet and heat, funny banter, and lovable characters. I'm ready to pack my bags and move to Magnolia Falls. This book and the entire series feel like a warm book hug.

I can't wait to see Nash get a much-deserved HEA in Beating Heart when it releases on August 15th.
