This book starts off with a BANG and ends with a BANG. JLA isn’t holding any punches when it comes to this series and I am here for it. This book is 625 pages long and it didn’t feel like it. I couldn’t stop flipping the pages. I needed to see what would happen next. […]

This island alone boasts more ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined.
And I’m one of them.
In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.
With a stranger’s help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals.
Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long-awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn’t looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.
Or so I thought.
Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He’s a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse.
I should resist him, but I can’t.
And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.
A bed posed on a stage under a dazzling spotlight. An audience of hungry eyes. And him, the other half of my soul, our supple bodies moving as one . . .
Sundara: the lush and forbidden oasis in the desert where men travel to watch acts of sexual deviancy, and the only existence seventeen-year-old Karys has ever known. But despite a life where secrets and sin are in high supply, and freedom remains far beyond their reach, Karys and her partner Zakai find safety in each other, their passionate love the light that helps them both survive the darkness.
Very suddenly, Karys and Zakai find themselves in the bright and confusing world of New York City, navigating separation, school, and relatives who are all but strangers. If they’ve been found, why do they still feel so lost? As their new lives threaten to drive them apart, and Zakai spins out of her grasp, Karys must figure out who and what can be trusted in this strange city, seemingly filled with more venom than the desert they once called home.
Prey is the second book in Hannah’s Blackwater Pack Series, and once again, she managed to enthrall me completely. I read this book chapter by chapter as Hannah was writing it, and it was the sweetest kind of torture you can imagine. Reading Hannah’s books is like falling down the rabbit hole. And you absolutely […]
This is my favorite book of 2020. I know I have raved about Claire Contreras before, and I am here to do it again. This time, in her newest novel, she went for a new-to-her genre: Gothic Romance. Which I happen to be OBSESSED with, so my excitement was through the roof. And let me […]
MY HEART. It always feels so full after a KA Tucker book, but especially after being in Calla and Jonah’s world, and this little novella was no different. It had me overflowing with so much emotion that it came out of my eyes. (But like, tears of happiness, I promise!) Small spoiler ahead, but fairly […]
First things first, this review contains minor spoilers for the first book in the series. If you haven’t read that one, abort mission. You definitely need to read that one first. If you’re like me and felt like Pirate of the Caribbeans’ Captain Barbossa yelling, “JUST KISS!” throughout Sanctum, this one will be the answer […]
