Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely…
Moon Mark (A Mark Novella)
By Scarlett Dawn
Subject Name: Madeline Faire
When natural disaster strikes Joyal, Madeline is tossed from her planet into the hands of the Kireg. Madeline has always feared the Kireg, an alien who can bend—or snap—a mind with only a thought. What she found on their home planet is even more frightening. Civil unrest has exploded and enemies are everywhere. But the one thing she never expected to find was her mate, the rebellion leader who started the war.
*THIS IS A STANDALONE NOVELLA WITHIN THE MARK SERIES*
I think the thing I love the most about SD’s writing is how week she keeps her characters consistent. Moon Mark is no different. While Madeline and Geo grow, they never lose their core being. When things are awkward or uncomfortable, the author owns it. When their vocabulary didn’t match, it’s funny. When they try to flirt, it’s hilarious.
Madeline is super duper smart. I mean, I gotta respect a chick that knows how to blow stuff up. I just do. I also appreciated her selflessness, even in what starts as a horrifying experience.
“Circumstances make you do what you must.”
Geo is stellar. Even though the book is entirely in Madeline’s POV, you still feel very connected to him. No matter how he felt about Madeline, he still took care of her.
The entire book is exciting (some scenes in a rawr wink drunk kinda way) and yet there is subtle romance and an honest relationship building in the midst of war.
House of Judges by Keary Taylor
Alivia once led a House full of immortal vampires, but now everything has been stripped away. Her friends have turned their backs on her, convinced she betrayed them and their Born kind. Taken prisoner to the King’s Court, she awaits her trial. But the sins of her father threaten to blacken her chances of clearing her name.
Alivia toyed with King Cyrus’ heart—and now, he’s going to make her pay. Perhaps with her life.
Hidden in the belly of the castle, truths will come to light, and the surface of the King’s brutality and the horrors of the castle have barely been scratched.
Prepare to be judged…
Everything in life eventually spirals out of control. And then, we find ourselves, here, at the bottom of everything.
House of Judges is so deep, so sad, that I couldn’t help but want to curl into a ball and rock for all of the turmoil Alivia was going through. This book was actually difficult to read in some places, taking the reader deep into the heart of revenge and retribution. Don’t worry, there are enough bright spots, well some of them are bright-ish but still effective, that you can make it through.
And you’re going to want to. Because that cliffy…whoa.
It’s tough for me to review without spoiling the previous books, and so I’m going to err on the side of caution in case you haven’t read them. BTW, read them 🙂

Wicked Ride by Sawyer Bennett
Add to your Goodreads TBR
I think this woman may be the death of me. A dire prediction, but probably true.
Probably true because she’s not mine to have and I’ll probably take her, even at the risk to my own safety. So many men slobbering to get a taste of her and only one, sweet, virginal girl to go around.

Treachery. Destiny. Forgiveness.
She’s the one woman he could never shake or forget. Nora Cantres was buried so fucking far inside Connelly he didn’t have breath left for anyone else. She’d managed to avoid him for more than a decade, but now the running stops. He’s made damn sure of it. Yet just when he’s got her in his bed, in his life, the secret she’s been hiding is unexpectedly revealed, blowing his entire world sky high.
Connelly Colloway was every man’s man. Confident. A little cocky. A whole lot of sexy. Once upon a time Nora thought he was hers, but then he betrayed her in the worst possible way, setting them on paths that didn’t include the other. Now he’s wormed his way back into her life and while she’s never loved anyone but him, she can’t let him back inside. She has too much to hide, too much to lose.
But when Karma finally catches up to them the only question is: can he forgive her monumental deceit or will she lose everything she holds dear, including Connelly?

I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
