The Brit

By Jodi Ellen Malpas

The Brit

Why this book?

The Brit is an engrossing story of love, hate, and deception, it's an edge of your seat, heart-pounding, and heartbreaking ride of a roller coaster all at the same time. I really loved The Brit. It is dark, suspenseful, and steamy. I really enjoyed this couple. Danny and Rose had amazing chemistry, and I’m always for an anti-hero who will burn the world down for the heroine. The plot is great, the author was able to pop in a few surprise details and characters who did give me some unexpected twists. The HEA left me completely happy. The Brit is a ride from beginning to end. The emotion and turmoil will captivate readers.

Private Property

By Skye Warren

Private Property

Why this book?

I am a sucker for dark, broody, and mysterious heroes. And Private Property is a promise of rough emotions mixed with shattering sensuality that will take the reader to the most unexpected and amazing journey. I was so consumed by the mystery, deeply entangled in this dark story that took over my head and soul. Mr. Rochester is a brooding billionaire consumed by secrets and our plain Jayne is an innocent nanny. Both characters’ souls are broken in a way that only the other can fit the empty spaces of their souls. Enter here a permanent and continuous storm, salty air, and a gothic contemporary mansion. There is something forbidden and hunted about the storyline that woken up goosebumps on my skin.
