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!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
