My Review: 3.5 Black Belts  

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
  
I give Full Contact 3.5 black belts (stars). I love martial arts and fighting, so naturally, I was excited to pick up this erotic romance novel. I enjoyed it, overall. Sia's character was well developed and I liked the way she grew and overcame her past over the course of the novel, and the way she was a mix of vulnerable and tough. I thought Ray's character should have been a bit more developed. Also, even though I enjoy alpha males, grunting one-and-two-word sentences was a bit too much for me. But in general, I liked Ray and would have enjoyed getting to know more about him.  The erotic part of the novel was well done, it was sexy, hot and fun. The insertion of a few BDSM elements into the sex scenes wasn't overwhelming but added another dimension to them, which to me was a plus.

The secondary characters were also well developed and fun to read, especially Sia's brother Tag (who, I'm assuming, is going to get a story of his own), her best friend Jess and Torment, the owner of the Redemption gym (whose story was already told in one of the previous installments in the series)


Overall, I enjoyed the novel enough to pick up the rest of the books in the series.

The Dreamer by E.J. Mellow - Cover Reveal



BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:

The Dreamer by E.J. Mellow
(The Dreamland Series, #1)
Publication date: May 15th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Fantasy/Sci-fi

Synopsis:
It’s night. Always night. Dreams guard against the evil forged by nightmares. Infinite shooting stars illuminate a moonless sky. A city stands alone, surrounded by a darkened field. On its fringes, a man watches one star separate from the masses and fall. What survives the crash will unveil a secret centuries long hidden.

Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken did look a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.

There, she meets the captivating but frustrating Dev, and together they discover Molly possesses a power coveted by his people—the ability to conjure almost anything she desires into existence. Seduced by the possibilities of this gift, Molly shifts her attention from waking life toward the man, the magic, and the world found in her dreams.

But Molly must ask herself—does something truly exist if you only see it when you close your eyes?

Faced with the threat of losing everything—her job, best friend, boyfriend, and most importantly, that little thing called her sanity—Molly will learn just how far she’ll go to uncover what is real and what is merely a figment of her imagination.

House of Royals Cover Reveal



BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:

House of Royals by Keary Taylor
Publication date: June 21st 2015
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult

Synopsis:
Every town has its history and skeletons, but Silent Bend, Mississippi’s are darker than most. Ruled from the shadows by the House—the immortal Born and their aging, enslaved Bitten—everyone knows not to go out after dark and that the police will never look into crimes involving blood.
Alivia Ryan didn’t know the man who claims to be her father through a will even existed until she inherits the Conrath plantation. Instead of the sleepy house she expects, she finds a mansion and a staff who look at her with fear in their eyes.
Ian Ward tried to kill Alivia the first time they meet, and then insisted he train her to defend herself against the House, who he claims will try to manipulate and take her in for their own political reasons. And the growing attraction between them will threaten their lives—Ian is a sworn enemy of the House.
In Silent Bend, people disappear, the threat of a demented King and the legend of his resurrecting Queen hang over everyone’s heads, and proving loyalty means far more than blood. You’d better watch who you trust in this town…
