COZEN by Bethany-KrisCozen by Bethany-Kris
Published by Self Published Genres: Contemporary, Erotic


 

coz-en (kuz-uhn)
verb
1. trick or deceive.
• obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?

 

 

Who can you trust is one of the major themes in Bethany-Kris’ latest release, Cozen. Who can you trust with your heart and most importantly your life?

Cozen Taylor is the most famous thief in America. She’s looking to retire when she gets roped into one final job which turns out to be the largest and most dangerous of her career.

Sargon Makri is a hardened killer with no allegiances.  He is a lethal bodyguard who recently found himself protecting one of the deadliest criminals in the U.S. His life is monotonous until a sexy waitress upends his life.  He wants her…he wants her bad…it’s just too bad his boss wants her as well.

Cozen is a highly entertaining read.  I found it a fast, fun exciting romance.  I particularly enjoyed the thrilling intrigue.  The sparks between Cozen and Sargon are swift and scintillating.  I loved that Cozen is such a badass in her field of expertise. It was great that she never shrunk under the daunting circumstances of the heist. She was determined to never rely on Sargon to save her.  If you are looking for sinfully erotic sex, steamy romance and excellent storytelling plus one heck of a twist then Cozen is for you.

LETHAL LIES by Rebecca ZanettiLethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti
Series: Blood Brothers #2
Published by Jove Genres: Suspense

Heath Jones is on the hunt for The Copper Killer; a serial killer who tortures and murders red heads.  Heath and his brothers are also running from a dark past.  Once he finds the Copper Killer he plans to take on the evils from his past.  The last thing he needs is a woman interfering.

Anya Best is a criminal psychologist out for revenge.  The Copper Killer kidnapped her sister and Anya feels like it’s her fault.  She is the one that involved her sister after the Copper Killer began leaving her notes and photos of his victims.  Anya decides it’s time to be the bait and draw out the killer and she’s going to use Heath to do it.

Author Rebecca Zanetti continues the Blood Brothers series in style with Lethal LiesLethal Lies tells Heath’s story.  Zanetti has created a dark and twisty tale with the Copper Killer case.  I had no clue who the killer was!  All my guesses were wrong and I love when that happens.

Heath and Anya have an immediate connection; one that goes beyond passion.  I enjoyed these characters both are intense and determined to get justice for the people they love.  Lethal Lies is packed with emotion it really tugs at the heartstrings.  Heath and Anya share a very fierce action filled story.  Lethal Lies is a fun electrifying ride.

I’ve really fallen in love with Ryker, Heath, Denver and their thrilling story.  These men and the women they fall for are characters you can root for and stand behind.  I cannot wait to find out what happens in Denver’s book Twisted Truths!

Lethal Lies is the second book in Author Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series.  It’s not necessary to read Deadly Silence first but it definitely makes the story more entertaining.

DARK PURSUIT by Jessica Jarman, Bronwyn Green, Kris Norris, & Paige PrinceDark Pursuit by Bronwyn Green, Jessica Jarman, Kris Norris, Paige Prince
Published by Self Published Genres: Paranormal


 

Rising Blood by Bronwyn Green

 

The hunt is on…

 

Newly reluctant partnered Vampire Hunters, Harper Yovanoff and Elliot Zielin are in hot pursuit of a very powerful, dangerous vampire who has maliciously been targeting and turning hunters into the very thing they hunt.  And, to complicate matters, a strong attraction is rapidly brewing between Harper and Elliot.  With many lives on the line, will they be able to put their conflicts aside and work together to put a stop to the evilness at hand.

 

If you are looking for a vampire storyline filled with a kick-ass heroine and an overly confident hero, then Rising Blood is just what the doctor ordered.  I will admit there were times where I wanted to smack Elliot upside the head because of his self-assured attitude.  I really enjoyed watching Elliot win Harper’s heart even before she consciously admits her true feelings.  My only request is I wish the plot could have been longer, lengthwise, for more character development.

 

 

Tempted To Death Jessica Jarman

 

Secrets come to light…

 

Tara Wilcox is hiding a secret and because of it she runs away from the two men she loves – Paranormal Hunters, Luca Castell and Oliver Gordon.  Now Tara is back and reveals her secret to her lovers.  Will Luca and Oliver welcome Tara back with open arms or will they destroy her because of the monster that hides within?

 

Overall, I liked Tempted To Death; however, I did not feel the sincere connection between Tara, Luca, and Oliver.  Whereas, the love is believable between Luca and Oliver; Tara almost feels like a third wheel in their threesome relationship. I can tell that each man loves her for who she is and that she loves them; however something was missing for me.  Nevertheless, the plot is fascinating, the sexual encounters are super-hot and the characters are amiable.  Note: this is a MMF and it contains MM love scenes.

 

 

Grave Measures by Kris Norris

 

Not all souls go peacefully …

 

Supernatural Hunters, Arrynn Baker and Daniel Cartwright now have first-hand knowledge of what it feels like to be a victim of an obnoxious supernatural being.  Daniel is being hunted by the ghost of his dead girlfriend.  Dealing with this issue brings Daniel and Arrynn closer together awakening their secret desire to cross the professional line and become lovers.  Will Daniel and Arryan be able to banish his dead girlfriend’s spirit once and for all before she succeeds in completing her mission of bringing Daniel with her into afterlife?

 

This novel gives me food for thought.  Grave Measures is edgy and interesting with some chilling tidbits thrown into the mix.  The plot is not like a horror movie type of scary per say, but it does have a things that go bump in the night type of flair.  Arrynn is my kind of heroine.  She is no shrinking violet and refuses to allow anyone, whether living or not, to take her man.  Likewise, Daniel is a strong, yet honest type of guy who is unwillingly drawn into a severe situation.  Together they are a force to be reckoned with both in and out of bed.  All in all, a very good read.

 

 

Next Lifetime by Paige Prince

 

Another chance at everlasting love…

 

Sarah, now known as Caitlin, is a witch/vampire hybrid.  In order to save her then lover, William, from the evil clutches of Bastian, a malicious vampire sire, Sarah casts a spell for him to be return to her in the future.  Fast forward a hundred years later, William is reborn as Lucas, a very powerful vampire hunter who is determined to rid the world of all vampires.  And, to make matters worse, Bastian is back with a vengeance determined to finish what he started over a century ago.  Will there be a happily-ever-after for Caitlin and Lucas when he discovers she vampire?  And more importantly, will they be able to get rid of Bastian once and for all?

 

The concept of this novel is good versus evil along with the desire to never give up.  Next Lifetime is a profound story that will pull at your heart.  I cannot imagine what it would be like to have eternal life with the one you love by your side.  Paige Prince does a great job of expressing it.  I sincerely sense the turmoil that Sarah/Caitlin feels at the loss of her beloved, not once but twice, before he is reborn a third time in the form of a very powerful Lucas.  The road to the rediscovery of love and trust is a difficult one, especially for Lucas.  Since she has fought the battle for so long, Caitlin never once gives up on Lucas – even when he is trying to terminate her because she is not human.  This is one tale not to be missed.  Enjoy!
