Purchase: Amazon | Kobo | iBooks

Her time is over. Things are looking up.
She’s dirty and ugly. He’s wicked but handsome. Six months to toy with her. Six months of vacation and a ton of money. I’ll hurt her beyond repair. I’ve been through much worse. She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey. I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life. I should hate her. I should hate him. The game has changed. I will win. Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

I HEART BOOKS REVIEW


Dirty Ugly Toy by K Webster
Review by Wennie Connedy
Stars: 5

Recently, I found myself reading quite a few books that didn't quite catch my attention; I was prepared to be disappointed with this one. I was ready to find a book full of mindless and pointless plot or story details. I was indeed prepared to be disappointed to find two-dimensional characters. I was not ready to have my mind blown by how good this book is. 

This book had me under its spell from the get-go. K. Webster certainly knows how to get the attention of her reader, and keep it! She grabs you immediately from the first sentence and doesn't let go until the very end. 

First, I thought it was a book about a sadistic man who takes advantage of weak and needy women. As you get comfortable with that premise, K. Webster takes you down a path that you didn't see coming. Suddenly, it becomes more. And as you ready yourself into a story about relationships, boom! It takes another turn to the dark side of relationships. 

K. Webster certainly knows how to build momentum. She drops hints here and there, and when I thought I had it all figured out, she flips the premise and left me flabbergasted. 

Her characters are flawed. They show their dark side. They show their soft side. They hide secrets, and they fight to keep their secrets hidden. They are human. And in spite of the desire to hate these characters, you cannot help but feel for them, pity them, understand them, and root for them. 

This book is dark. This book is intense. This book is hard to put down. This book is one that you should grab. Now. 

Note: A copy of the book was provided in exchange for an honest review.

“I made you a promise, Charlie.” Mark’s already deep voice is layered with desire.
Once again, my control begins to slip. “What’s that?”
His hands drop a little lower beside my head. His lower body shifts so his knee is between my legs. I feel his arousal against my thigh.
My traitorous body shows its own awakening. My nipples hardening through the silk material don’t go unnoticed. Heat pools in my core and my breath hitches. I want him. There’s no use denying it.
“I told you I’d kiss you again. If you don’t stop me now, there’s no getting away.”
I should stop him. I need to stop him. There’s no way in hell it’s going to happen, though. I’m craving his lips again.
He gives me one second before he crushes his mouth against mine. His entire body shifts forward, and now I’m trapped. There’s nowhere to go. Nowhere to move that’s not Mark. He takes every part of my mind and body. Our hands roam each other as his tongue slides against mine. Passion ignites between us; it sets the room on fire. His fingers cup my neck and then glide down the front of my dress. His hand brands my skin as he takes his time exploring the open skin between us.
My fingers grip the lapels of his tux, holding him, molding him to me. I can’t get close enough. Our mouths stay fused as we both lose control.
Then my mind snaps.
I push back and my hands fly to my lips. They’re swollen, bruised from the force of the kiss. His hands brace against the wall. I keep my eyes downcast. I can’t believe I just did that, against the damn wall, at a ball commemorating my father.
I shift my dress, rake my fingers through my hair, and pull myself together.
“Charlie . . .” Mark finally speaks. It sounds like shouting even though it’s only loud enough for us to hear.
“That was the last time that will ever happen,” I say with no tremor to my voice. “Tonight we become partners. It’s not about whatever this is.” I shift my hands between us. “It’s about finding the information we’re both searching for.”
“And what if we find something else?”
“We shut it down. There’s no room for feelings in this world.”
Mark pushes back, giving me space. I instantly feel cold. “Okay, then. Have it your way.”
This is what I wanted, what we both need, but suddenly I wish it wasn’t. I wish I could pull him close, kiss him, fuck him, and just feel.
But wishes are for little girls.

I HEART BOOKS REVIEW


Defenseless by Corinne Michaels
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5


Terrific Military Romance

Tumultuous and terrifying all at the same time.  The main characters play well off each other and are bossy and tough, but with a heart of gold.  Sometimes you know exactly what will happen next and then all of a sudden you are going in a different direction.  This story will keep you on your toes to the end!  And now a bit about the story...

The story starts deep in the middle of a rescue mission.  An insider has contacted them about their missing teammate.  From the minute Mark sees Charlie he wants her.  They both have secrets, heck secrets are their world.  Can Mark win her over? Will her secrets and fears destroy them or protect them or leave them defenseless??

Favorite passages:
 - “Oh, come on. Sharks are just misunderstood. They want to be friends, cuddle a little, or maybe it just wants a hug .” Mark is enjoying this a little too much.
 - “I want that too, but this won’t be easy.”“Nothing worth anything is ever easy.”

 - But my life has consisted of choices, and those choices have consequences.

DIRTY by Kimberly Blalock



My name is Oliva Basari. I escaped one hell only to be trapped into another. Darkness and fear seething through my thoughts. I fell in love, I fell in lust… Hell, I just fell. A new city, new job, new persona… In the darkness Tess became real… MY alter ego. The jab of someone or something else building in my gut until she's all I wanted to become. Never fearing what could happen when remorse knocked on my door. Never fearing the lustful way I stalked them… The ones that couldn't have me, that couldn't taste me. Until I met one very, tall, dark, and forbiddingly handsome Mr. Black. He hated me, watched me with darkness in his tormented eyes. He scared me, intimidated me, left me questioning my own sanity. He was the one thing I wouldn't let myself submit too. The way he touched me. Slid his knuckles across my flesh. But I wasn't a single woman, I had someone that loved me for who I was or rather had feigned to be. 
In the end, we are all captured souls waiting for release or the claw scrapping escape of our own maniacal thoughts. In the end, we are all prisoners of the flesh.

 REPENTANCE by Cassia Brightmore




Obsession is a passionate emotion. A dark blend of desire and longing; it distorts reality into twisted fantasies. How far would you go to ensure the object of your infatuation is forever in your possession? Former Deputy Sam Ridley is a man plagued by past sins. In his eyes, being sentenced to ten years in prison isn’t punishment enough for his crimes. An unwanted early parole forces him to re-join a society that looks down on him with scorn. Exiling himself to a new town is the only hope he has to escape the ghosts haunting him. Emma Danvers is a woman looking for change. Living a life of privilege has offered her opportunities without challenges. Breaking free of the constraints of family obligation, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Never did she expect to be catapulted into the arms of a man searching for his own new beginning. Two people thrown together in a twist of fate. One running from his past; the other chasing a brighter future. Can they be each other’s salvation? Or will any happiness they find be ripped to shreds by the deadly obsession of another? Redemption comes at a high-staked price no one is willing to pay as the Darkness Series returns for one last mind-blowing trip into the depths of despair. 

Warning: This is a dark romance novel not suited for readers under the age of eighteen due to graphic violence and situations.

 INSURMOUNTABLE by Skye Callahan



When a slave with no future meets a man with no boundaries, will their heated encounter ignite their lonely hearts or send them down in flames?

They took my life and freedom at the age of sixteen.
my prison
I live in their walks by their rules with the false and deluded hope that one day things will be different. That one day I'll no longer be merely an object of their perverse fantasies. But deep in my heart I know there is only one end to my nightmare--death.
Until him...
my Master

Some call my home paradise, others know it as hell but it's the only life I've ever known.
My legacy
At the age of ten, I saw my mother's dead body carried out if our room. The organization became my family, molding and shaking me in their image, but I never forgot the lesson my mother taught me. I only live by their rules to get what I want in return... Her.
My Little Dove
