Convict (Unfit Hero #1) by Hayley Faiman

Convict, Hayley Faiman

This was my very first read by Hayley Faiman and it will most certainly not be the last. I am actually happy to say I own two more of her books already and can get started on it straight away.

The book was 100% not what I was expecting. I knew little of her writing style or the series going into it besides the cover and the blurb. Both of which, to me, make Convict sounds like a dark romance. That is not what this is at all. It is passionate, suspenseful, and the main characters backgrounds is a little dark. But it is not a dark romance. It is really really sweet. Rylan and Channing are perfect for each other in every way. 

Blurb:

Guilty. ExCon. Felon. Prisoner. Criminal.

Words that now represent me.
Words that keep any decent person away from me.

I never gave much thought to words before now.

Slut. Hussy. Whore. Homewrecker. Jezebel.

Words that now reflect me.
Words that will stay indefinitely.

The evidence of those words grow inside of me.

Those Words make the entire town assume they are vindicated to use them.
I am wrong.
They are right.

I do think that because of the insta love this is not going to be for everyone, and usually I only like insta love in my paranormal romances, but it was ok here. The story would have dragged without it. Rylan and Channing make sense. Their pasts fit, their present fits. 

Both made some very bad choices in their past with terrible consequences. He has paid for his, even tough he does not believe he has. She is paying for hers. Their story is unconventional, different, and so very touching.

All secondary characters were engaging and interesting as well. I am so very glad I have the next book because I think Wyatt's story is going to be just as touching.

Highly recommend this one!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
