Review: Damaged Locke by Victoria Ashley & Jenika Snow

34352260 
Aston Locke
Whispers of the Locke brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherfuckers believe they know about us.

That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear.

Maybe they’re not wrong about that.

That is, until I set my sights on Kadence King, getting just as drawn to her as I am the darkness. It’s the first time I’ve felt anything in a long time. 

But would she really be scared knowing the depth, the lengths I go with my brothers to make any fucker who crosses us pay? 

I need a woman who can accept me for who I am.

For what I am.

I’m hoping like hell it’s her, because I want nothing more than to claim her as mine…

Kadence King
I know Aston’s dangerous, know people fear him. But I want him. I’m drawn to him, just as he’s drawn to the darkness.

I should be afraid of him, should turn the other way, but I can’t. I’ve gone mad and let him in my room, in my life, allowing him to consume me. 

He possesses me, dominates me. Aston Locke shows me what it means to want to be claimed by him and only him.

And when he tells me I’M HIS, I have no doubt that’s the truth.

Because in the end it’s what I want too.

No matter how dangerous he is…

Hotness alert!! Yes guys this one was damn hot with the dangers lurking around.

The story introduces us to Aston, one of the infamous Locke brothers. He is tall, dark and handsome and all ruthless.

"I’m Aston Locke, a mean motherfucker that you just let all up in your space.”

Everyone fears Locke brothers especially Aston Locke, he is all fucked up. If you want to be safe stay away from him.

"I crave the challenge like I crave the darkness."

Enters Kadence, soft, sweet and a complete opposite of Aston. But she has her own demons and Astons's presence makes her  feel safe. Where he is dark she is all light and she is exactly what he needs.

"I’m flirting with danger, playing with fire right in the palm of my hand."

Kadence is fascinated with the youngest Locke. She even gets more curious when he sees him doing one of his job but she has no idea of what lies ahead.

"Maybe I’ll feed her curiosity and give her a small taste of the youngest Locke.
I’m pretty sure this will be the last time she leaves her bedroom window unlocked and opened for me."

Their first meeting is oh my god....so intense, downright erotic even dark and full of secrets. He is infatuated with her and now he wants her. He needs her like he needs air to breathe.

"I need you, Kadence. I need us. Tell me you want the same.”

His darkness calls to her. She wants him like she has wanted no one else. She craves him and now she has him all of him.

"This is only the fucking beginning. You’re mine. Only mine.”


I loved the plot and characters... The writing style was amazing and full of emotions, I felt Everything. I felt the hate, the love, the dangers.

"I found my way here. So here I am. Here with you under the stars.”

The only thing I didn't like was that the story was rushed. It had a great plot but everything was rushed. I was expecting some action and adventure but that was also too quick. It came and went and I was like what the fuck did happen? So I would have liked it more if it was a bit extended and detailed with not that insta lust/love. But all in all it was a good quick read.

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

REVIEW | BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families.  Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca.  Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power ,  but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile. In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster withi

REVIEW | PRICE OF A KISS (Forbidden Men #1) BY LINDA KAGE

I don’t care what my cousin says;  I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean— Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate...except for one teeny tiny glitch. He's a gigolo. Boy, do I know how to pick them. 5 "I Love You, Mason" Reding Owls I loved, loved, loved this book . This one is definitely worth reading. It's so different th
