The Billionaire Beast, Another Damaged Billionaire Harasses a Good Girl Until She Falls In Love…

The Billionaire Beast is the first book by Jackie Ashenden that I’ve read, even though it’s 2nd in the series. It can be read as a stand-alone though, so I didn’t have issues following along. I feel like every romance that is getting tucked into my inbox is a Billionaire novel – and each one is getting more outlandish than the next. This one isn’t your typical billionaire in the setting, but it’s stereotypical in the composition. Ashenden set out to create more of a “bastard” billionaire than all the rest and she succeeded and then wrapped him in a mental illness so you’ll pity him. While I did enjoy the novel, when it ended I felt a bit let down, because it is a fairy tale novel – the happily-ever-after was too contrived.

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

Royally Screwed was one of those guilty pleasure romance that I so enjoy. Sure, it's a romance involving a royal and a commoner, something that's been done a few times, but Emma Chase made it funny, sexy, and added a few twists and turns that made it fresh. The narration by Andi Arndt and Shane East was a pleasure to listen to, making this a MUST LISTEN audiobook.

Dead Souls by J. Lincoln Fenn

DEAD SOULS by J. Lincoln Fenn is a novel that took me by surprise. It’s one of those novels where you can’t stand the heroine, but you like the book anyway. Fenn’s complex plot and abject ability to capture logic in evil makes this story great and also horrifying. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more intense, things got crazy. I enjoyed listening to this book. If it wouldn’t have been a gore fest at the end, I might have enjoyed it more, giving it a 5-star - but really it was worth the listen and I’m sure you’ll find it quite entertaining.

Review: Exiled by Jasina Wilder

Madame X was a surprise hit for me last year, and the second book, Exposed, left me waiting excitedly for the final book in the trilogy, Exiled. I want to say it was everything I expected, and while parts of it did have what I'd been hoping for in a conclusion, overall it was predictable and I'm embarrassed to say I skimmed over quite a bit. I guess you could say that I have mixed feelings about Exiled, and as a result, the trilogy as a whole.

Advertiser Spotlight: Desiring Red by Kristin Miller

She’s one hell of a distraction—the most beautiful woman who has ever stepped foot in my castle. Even though I know I shouldn’t, I have to get one last look at her before she meets my cousin, before he has the chance to claim her.
