Book Spotlight: Where Death Meets the Devil by L.J. Hayward

Where Death Meets the Devil by L.J. Hayward Date Released: February 26, 2018 Riptide Publishing
About Where Death Meets the Devil Jack Reardon, former SAS soldier and current Australian Meta-State asset, has seen some messy battles. But “messy” takes on a whole new meaning when he finds himself tied to a chair in a torture shack, his cover blown wide open, all thanks to notorious killer-for-hire Ethan Blade.
Blade is everything Jack doesn’t believe in: remorseless, detached, lawless. Yet, Jack’s only chance to survive is to strike a bargain with the devil and join forces with Blade. As they trek across a hostile desert, Jack learns that Blade is much more than a dead-eyed killer—and harder to resist than he should be.
A year later, Jack is home and finally getting his life on track. Then Ethan Blade reappears and throws it all into chaos once more. It’s impossible to trust the assassin, especially when his presence casts doubts on Jack’s loyalty to his country, but Jack cannot ignore what…

Review: Waterfall Effect by K.K. Allen

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Waterfall Effect is my first read from author K.K. Allen, and it's her newest standalone release. At face value, it's a second chance romance, but this was so much more than that. Yes, the main characters were young and in love at seventeen and twenty-one, respectively, and Aurora June and Jaxon Mills meet again five years after she walked away from him and their hometown at eighteen. However, this is also a romantic suspense story, one that's fraught with tension brought about by the what-ifs and the unanswered questions of the life-altering event that changed both Aurora's and Jaxon's lives, resulting in them going in different directions. Aurora returns, and in order for their story to truly come full circle and for them to start over again, they'll have to face the demons of their joint pasts.

I love it when an author is able to keep me on my toes, and th…

Release Blitz: Regret by Max Henry

Regret (Twisted Hearts #2) by Max Henry Release Date: February 28, 2018
About Regret Four simple rules when you’re a woman in denial:

1. Don’t stalk your father’s best friend online.
2. Don’t talk to him via Messenger.
3. Definitely don’t go to his house.
4. And whatever you do, don’t tell him you’re still in love.

I’ve never been one for doing what I’m told.

Read my 4.5-starred review of Regret.

About Max Henry For as long as she can remember, Max has always had a love of the macabre and thought provoking side to life. Which probably stands to reason why each of her books takes the reader on an emotional journey that not only promises twists, turns, and suspense, but a heart-wrenching journey where her motto holds true:
Love never comes easy.
When she's not lost in an alternate world—fuelled by coffee and the odd sneaky bowl of chocolate (preferably M&Ms…

Review: Desire & Regret by Max Henry (Twisted Hearts #1-#2)

Note: Regret is an ARC provided by the author via Foreword PR & Marketing in exchange for an honest review. Desire is a personally owned copy.
This is a joint review for author Max Henry's Twisted Hearts duet which is composed of two full-length novels, Desire and Regret. This forbidden, May-December romance needs to be read in order, with the first book ending in a cliffhanger of sorts, and while the second one picks up three years after the events in the series starter, it does continue the very same love story. Have no fear, cliffhanger haters, both books are already available, so there isn't any sort of waiting period. And trust me, this duet proved to be an entertaining double first read for me.

Desire introduces us to eighteen-year-old Belle, a girl whose heart belongs to two men--her father and her father's best friend. It was her father that raised her, the one who stayed when the woman who gave birth to her upped and left without a care in the world. It was Zeu…
