Savage Prince by Alison Aimes

4.5 STARS

Release Date: June 22, 2021

SYNOPSIS: He’s a notorious crime lord—and he’s on the hunt for her. Maxheim Skolov is mafia royalty. Worlds above her. Ice-cold and merciless. Driven by duty and dark secrets. Tess is property. Expected to submit. Imprisoned by ruthless criminals determined to break her for information she can’t afford to give. Because she’s got a secret that could change everything–and the last thing she wants is to put it in the hands of her enemies. Except there’s something different about the heir to the Skolvo crime family that awakens long buried instincts within Tess and draws her toward the man inside the beast. A force more dangerous than anything she’s faced to date. So, she runs. But she won’t get far. For mafia prince Maxheim Skolov, hunting down the rebellious, spirited female is a certainty. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her secret. The real question is what he’ll do with her—and to her—when he catches her.


Savage PrinceA Dark Mafia Omegaverse Fated-Mates Romance is the second book in the Ruthless Warlords series. It is a scorching HOT standalone, though it is recommenced to read the series in order for greatest enjoyment.


REVIEW: I haven’t read a fated mates book in way too long. I love them so much, and this one was really good! There was so much to like about this story. I like the world building and the alpha/beta/omega interactions. The dual points of view bring a lot to the story. Tess has been through the wringer and I loved seeing Maxheim prove how amazing he can be to her throughout the story. Also, the way Tess’ gift is so deadly and impacted by Maxheim’s appearance in her life pulled me right into the plot from the start. Then there are the Slokov brothers as whole, yum. I am here for each one meeting their mates and the chaos that ensues. I’m excited for the rest of this series, and I’d definitely recommend this one to my PNR/SCIFI steamy romance readers!

Rachel, Out of Office by Christina Hovland

4 STARS

Release Date: January 25, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Out of reach, out of touch, out of her mind. Single mom, Rachel Gibson seriously needs a break. Between an absent ex-husband, rowdy twin boys, managing the PTA, and running her own business, her candle isn’t burning at both ends, it’s a full-blown puddle of wax. She’s the go-to girl for other entrepreneurs, handling all the tasks they dread. Social media posts? She’s got it. Website updates? She’s on it. Light bookkeeping? Oh, yes. Thank goodness she’s about to get a reprieve when her in-laws plan to whisk her boys away for a summer of fun at the family lake house. But when her ex backs out of the family retreat, and her former inlaws insist she attend their yearly vacation summit with her munchkins, she finds herself in a pickle. Even though she’s drowning in to-dos, she’s horrible at saying no — especially when it comes to her kids Once Rachel arrives at the lake house, she struggles to keep up with work and balance the demands of family all the while fending off pesky new feelings about her ex-brother-in-law. Which makes her start to wonder… Is falling for her ex-husband’s brother just one more messy complication added to the dumpster fire?  Or is anything possible when she’s out of office…


An adorable romantic momedy!


REVIEW: This was super cute! The characters were very realistic, which made all the different relationship dynamics so relatable. It was great to see the characters interact in all the situations that came up. I’m a huge fan of forbidden romances like these, where some people don’t think they should be together, but they would really make each other happy. Travis is so much more than Rachel knows of him (which consists mostly of what her ex Gavin, Travis’ brother, told her). I really felt Travis proved himself again and again. Rachel kind of drove me crazy, because she’s trying to be the strong independent woman that does it all. I can totally respect that, but everyone needs help! I just liked seeing these characters grow and find the way they fit together. The angst and chemistry definitely made this an entertaining read!

Playing with Trouble by Amy Andrews

4 Stars

Release Date: November 30, 2020

SYNOPSIS: From pro rugby player to…Manny? Australian rugby pro Cole Hauser has had enough of speculations about his future post-injury. So when a football buddy puts his house in America at Cole’s disposal, he jumps at the chance for some peace and anonymity. The plan is perfect–until he discovers he’s roomies with a woman who knows how to wield a nail gun and her kid. Awesome. Not. Single mom Jane Spencer is supposed to be spending four weeks alone in the wilds of Colorado rehabbing a house that’ll put her business on the map. Instead, her time is overrun by her four-year-old and a grumpy, too-sexy rugby dude whose only goals are to watch ESPN and brood.

Awesome. Not.

When, surprisingly, McHottie offers to get his ass off the couch and help Jane out with Finn, she’s hesitant. But before she knows it, Cole is knee-deep in kid activities during the day and they’re both fighting their simmering attraction at night. Anything between them can only be temporary – their time together is short and Cole lives on the other side of the planet. It should be easy to say goodbye, right? Wrong. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they’ve borrowed a whole lot of trouble. But trouble never felt this good. 


REVIEW: I knew I was going to really like this one! The way Cole interacts with Finn, despite his brooding is just so heart warming. I also love the small town side characters in this one–Arlo specifically, and how he includes Cole. I appreciate Jane as a strong, female character who has to work to prove herself in a mostly male driven career. It adds some spunk to her that has her overreacting, but it makes for some good banter. And when Cole meet each of her challenges, I just liked him even more. I would definitely recommend this one!
