Cover & Synopsis Reveal ~ Kane (Slater Brothers #3) by L.A. Casey

Cover Design: Mayhem Cover Creations 
Releasing: May 5th
Aideen Collins is a free spirit. She is outspoken and tough as nails, but she has to be after growing up in a house full of men. Family means everything to Aideen. Her family consists of her four brothers, her father, and her group of wild friends. Aideen is protective of her family, there is not a lot she wouldn’t do to keep them safe. 

 Kane Slater is a tortured soul. Literally. He is misunderstood by people, even feared by them thanks to the scars that mar his face and body. He relishes in their fear because people who fear you, won’t want to know you. He likes his circle limited to his brothers and their girlfriends, but a thorn from an Irish rose is dug deep into Kane’s side, and her name is Aideen Collins. 

 Aideen and Kane don’t get along… at all. Aideen is the only woman who stands up to Kane and throws his bullshit back at him without fear of hurting him. Kane is the only man who can see right through Aideen's tough exterior. He knows her deepest, and darkest secrets. They can’t stand each other, but they want each other. Badly. They hide their need behind arguments, and banter, but when Kane drops his guard for all to see, and succumbs to an illness within his body, it’s Aideen who steps up to the plate to take care of him. 

 An illness is the least of their worries when a devil from Kane’s past comes back to play with him. Everybody in Kane’s life is threatened, and with his body fighting against him, he doesn’t know if the luck of the Irish is enough to keep his family safe and his demons at bay. Kane needs Aideen, and what Kane needs, Kane takes.
“I broke a nail!” I screamed as pain shot up my finger. 

“No!” Kane cried. 

Multiple footsteps pounded down the hallway and then bodies burst into Kane’s bedroom. “What?” All his brothers hollered as they piled through the doorway. Kane pointed a trembling hand at me. “Her nail! She broke her nail!” 
With a perplexed look I looked at Kane then to the brothers who all gasped and flung their hands over their mouths. They all gripped onto furniture, or onto one another to stay upright. 

I was so confused. I had no fucking idea what was going on. 


“Your nail?” Alec screeched. 

Nico placed his hands on the side of his head and shook it from side to side. “Anything but your nail!” 

Ryder rushed over to me and grabbed the hand I was cradling and thoroughly examined it, and when he saw confirmation that my nail was gone, he whimpered. “It’s gone. Gone forever!” 

“No!” Kane wailed, fell back onto his bed, and flung his arms over his face. “Why did it have to her nail? Why, God? WHY?” 

I glared at Kane, then his brothers. The bastards were taking the piss out of me, and my broken nail. 

“I hate you all.” I said then turned and walked out of the room. 

I made it half way down the stairs before I heard the eruption of belly rumbling male laughter, and even though it pleased me greatly that they were smiling again, I hated that it was at my expense. “Bloody brothers,” I grumbled. Slater Brothers Series Slater Bros Series

Review ~ By Any Other Name (Forbidden #1) by J.M. Darhower

A deadly rivalry.
Two families at war.
Nobody is safe, not even the innocent.
Especially the innocent.
Blood will be spilled.

Genevieve "Genna" Galante knows a thing or two about causing trouble. After all, it's engrained in her DNA. As the only daughter of Primo Galante, notorious boss of the Galante crime family, her life is dictated by a certain set of rules… rules Genna was never very good at following.

Matteo "Matty" Barsanti never wanted anything to do with the family business, but as the first-born Barsanti son, certain things are expected of him. It's his duty, according to his father, to help take down the enemy... even if that enemy means something to him.

A chance encounter on an elevator changes the course of lives, causing the biggest trouble of Genna's young life. The only good Barsanti is a dead Barsanti. She's heard it said time and time again. So what happens when she falls in love with one of them?

The story of star-crossed lovers caught in the middle of the biggest rivalry New York has ever seen, determined to make it… if only they can survive their parents' feud.
Five Stars

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.” Romeo & Juliet, Act 2 Scene 2

I almost didn’t pick up this book. Almost. The synopsis and the title screamed Romeo & Juliet and we all know how that ended right? However, I couldn’t say no to reading a mafia-themed book by J.M. Darhower. That would just be asinine! And HOLY FUCK…what a ride!

"The Prodigal Son and the Ice Princess, huh? Sounds like a terrible fairy tale."

This is the story of Genna Galante & Matty Barsanti. The Galante & Barsanti families are war which dates back to when Genna was very young and watched her older brother, Joey, die in a car explosion ordered by the Barsanti family. Since then, the animosity between the two families has only worsened. To say they hate each other is understatement.

“That’s because I prefer it that way,” he responded. “Strong and rough, enough to leave a lingering ache. I like it to hurt just a bit.”

Of course when Genna and Matty first met, they didn’t know who each other were. Their chemistry was instantaneous and explosive and their one night of anonymity definitely left an impression on each other -- with both wanting more. When all is revealed, no amount of family animosity could keep them apart, but how long can they keep their relationship secret?

“The after. Every moment is just the aftermath of whatever came before it.”

So I jumped in thinking I was going to get some type of Shakespearian type of story: tragic love that will end in utter heartbreak. But when the smoke cleared, I wanted more -- I fucking ached for more. Ms. Darhower, if you’re reading this, please please PLEASE let you-know-who be ok. I will be devastated if anything were to happen to him. I cannot wait for more!!!

Cover Reveal ~ Toy Boy Chronicles (Volume One) by Jay McLean

Genre: New Adult Romantic Humor
Release Date: March 3rd
Cover Design: Cover It Designs
Warning: This book contains slightly inappropriate everything.

"So…I came up with a plan.
I sat the brothers down and gave them my speech; we’d become male escorts.

The house was split.
The single dudes thought it was great. The guys with the steady girlfriends told the single dudes they were insane.
I promised them all we could make it work without hurting anybody. But we had to be smart about it. We had to keep it off campus. We had to keep it a secret. And in order to do so, we had to target those who wanted it kept a secret as much as we did.
Our target: Filthy rich, unsatisfied, horny housewives.
Keep it high class, so to speak.
And thus began BTC, or Boy Toy Corporation.
Crazy, right?
Crazy genius.”

-Tyler West.
