Savage Prince (Savage Trilogy, #1) by Meghan March and Dominic (Benedetti Brothers #2) by Natasha Knight

I was in a mood for a dark romance this week, so I raided my shelves and these are the books I came up with. I liked them both :)

Savage Prince by Meghan March- 4 Stars

Blurb: I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.
I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me. 
Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third. 
My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t. 
But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet.
I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness.
Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both. 


After reading all the reviews I confess I went into this book a little worried. Not because I minded that apparently there was 'too much sex' -as if that was ever a thing in erotica- but because the ending wasn't exactly an ending. I am not a fan of cliffhangers and I haven't read a book without owning the very next one in at least a year. I really really don't like cliffies anymore. And well, since Meghan March is new to me I didn't have the next books.

I am glad to say I really liked the story. Yup, it definitely has a cliffhanger. But the story has not developed enough for that to be a big problem.
And I guess that is the only reason I can't give 5 starts and the main reason people didn't like it much. It doesn't feel developed enough. I like the concept, I like the main characters, the plot... but in the end I didn't know much about anyone or anything. I mean... we don't even have the guys name in the end of the book! I don't mind that much, he is meant to e mysterious, but it does take some of the depth a story needs away.

Anyway... I already ordered the next book and I am looking forward to it!

Dominic by Natasha Knight - 5 Stars

Blurb:
Dominic

I was the boy who would never be king. The monster who could never be loved.

Gia was just a job. Just another girl caught in a world of monsters.

It didn’t matter that I liked the look of her.
I didn’t care that she cringed when she saw my soul.
I liked it.
I liked her fear.
And I wanted her.

Monsters didn’t get to live happily ever after, though. I knew one day I’d have to go back. Because time neither forgave nor forgot.

And neither did I.

Old debts needed to be settled. Enemies punished. It was past time I returned to the family business. I’d been gone far too long.

Gia

All my life, I believed in fairy tales. Not the Disney kind. Never those. I always knew life was darker than that.

I was the daughter of a foot soldier. The sister of a snitch. A nobody.

Monsters had been part of my life for as long as I could remember, but none as dark as Dominic Benedetti. None as cruel. None as broken.

I had no illusions about what he was. I had no desire to save his soul. And I couldn’t care about his bleeding heart.

But love isn’t always beautiful. It could be a twisted, ugly bitch.

I’d always known this was the kind I’d find. The only kind that could touch me.

Because some of us, we belonged in the dark.
And Dominic and I belonged in the dark.


Well... this was quite something...
Dominic has ZERO redeeming qualities. He is sadist and he likes it! I mean... his new job is to 'train' girls for auction.
Don't go into this book expecting a guy that has some deep reason that makes perfect sense for what he does.

Dominic and Gia's journey wasn't pretty. Wasn't easy to read. It was full of blood, pain, and deceit. There was also passion of course. Two dark and broken souls that understood each other better than anyone else.


I did not understand or agree with anything Dominic did. Not in the beginning and not in the end. His reasons weren't good enough. But it didn't matter to me. It was the kind of book I wanted this past week. Dark, mysterious, with no redeeming qualities, and super hot and passionate. I got what I asked for!

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else
