I know it has been a while since I posted my monthly round-up ,but I really needed a break.
I started reviewing and promoting books and author for fun and because I love reading and sharing my love with others out there. But started getting out of hand and taking a good chunk out of my day to post everything or get stuff ready. It started to not be fun anymore. So since it was just time for summer I decided to take a break and decide and maybe decide if I want to continue this site and BookLikes . But as you can tell I’m back .
I might not post as much as I used to before( staring this month) but I still will be around. I just don’t want to get overwhelmed again like before and lose my love for books and reading.
While I might have not been online as much I still was reading and reviewing. I even stuck to my 5 books a month limit 😀
Anyways, over the next few days I will try to catch up and post the missing monthly round-ups. I will just post them and leave them there for you without much of anything 🙂
August was a good month , I got a couple ARCs read and finally got to read Torn by JLA , which by the way rocked . One of the ARCs was Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews and of course it was such a great read, I couldn’t get enough of.
I hope all of you are doing great and had a great summer and lots of good books ……. And thank you again for all you support it means the world to me 🙂
Anywho, now to the books, as always you can find the buy links in the reviews, which you get to by clicking the “review” tab in the post .
Royal Obsession by Megan Maldonado
FIRE KINGDOM—CARMELLA & DEREK
Everything comes with a price…
For Carmella Woods, daughter of the prestigious and highly favored Lord Woods, feeling caged is no novelty. Her entire life has been designed in the hopes to make her fit, to adapt to what her parents perceive as respectable, honorable. Not doing so has high, unthinkable consequences. Consequences she has faced in the past, and has lost the fight against in the present.
Doing her best to be an obedient daughter and keep her essence—her spark—has proven quite difficult, especially since the favored her father praises are nothing more than a group of superficial bigots.
Until Derek Warren reenters her life.
Gorgeous, egocentric Derek Warren. Womanizing, dangerous Derek Warren.
After being fiercely rejected by Prince Derek, Carmella can hardly glance at him without feeling enraged. Though that quickly changes as her life is swooped into a whirlwind, with the prince at the center of the chaos—of the blaze. A link to who she truly is.
In a battle between past and present, truth and lies, Carmella must decide whether to fight the licks of flame that threaten to consume her, or embrace them.
Torn by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.
Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.
Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?
But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.
Sex Hell by Joe Canzano
When Debbie de La Fontaine tries to spice up her love life by supernaturally tampering with her sex life, she is cursed to spend every future encounter in a magical place called “Sex Hell,” where the sex is ludicrous and amazing–but the romance is scarce.
Her only chance for escape is through the stingy clues supplied by a laughing demon, and the only way to obtain the clues is by returning to Sex Hell again and again to have outrageous sexcapades with the man she most wants to avoid–or does she?
Sex Hell is an absurd comic fantasy about the confusion of relationships. How is love related to sex, and how is sex related to love–and do love and sex need to be related at all?
*This book contains profanity and adult situations.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…
