Review: Weak For Him by Lyra Parish

"Have you heard the saying, 'sex sells'? Well, I'm the supplier."

Finnley Felton sells sex.
Jennifer Downs is a virgin.
With the help of lady luck, the two meet.

Money. Bright lights. Sex.

Jennifer is made an offer: sell her virginity to the highest bidder and transform into one of Finnley's girls. But she finds herself weak for him, and doesn't fully realize what she's agreed to until it's too late.

Will she rise to the challenge and play by the rules in a land where money is king and love is prohibited? Or will she lose herself and values in the attempt?

Weak for him is a New Adult Contemporary Romance with sexual content.


Holy fucking crap y'all!!!!!!!!! 


(I promise no spoilers because this book isn't out yet.)
I hardly have words to explain all of my feels for this book right now. I received an ARC from the author (thanks Lyra!!). I knew I would like it just by checking out the description. I knew it. Sex. Alpha male. Money. Dude, it was written for me. 
Finnley Felton is a total fucking asshole. (I'm pretty sure he's my soul mate). The way he treats Jennifer is emotionally confusing and sexually frustrating. In a good way. Their relationship is complicated and full of angst. I seriously LOVED every second of it. 
There were moments when I was so damn frustrated I couldn't handle it. I wanted to shout at my kindle. There were moments when I cheered. There was one moment where I wanted to cut Finnley's ball sack off. 
You'll know what I'm talking about when you get there. I'm still a little pissed off about it, LOL. 
Overall, I read this book in one sitting. I seriously couldn't put it down. There was one point where I had to pee and literally held it because my kindle needed to be on the charger and couldn't go with me. (LOL, that's when you know a book is awesome!) I really just loved every minute of this book and I can't wait to read the sequel. I know it is going to rock! 
If I could I would give this book like thirty more stars, y'all! <3 Seriously buy it when it comes out on January 15th!!!

Review: Revenge in Rio by Samantha Darling


Calculated revenge, unexpected passion…
Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancĂ©e, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.
Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.
Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?




Image and video hosting by TinyPicFavorite quote: "He sat up straight, replaced his designer shades, and smiled to himself. If she wanted to play dirty, he was ready. Hardball was his strong point. It would make the revenge all that much sweeter, and he couldn't wait to taste it."

This is how I felt the entire time reading this novel. I seriously could not get over how amazing the writing was and how troubled both Luca and Daniella were. I love characters who have a past together, especially one as tricky as these two have. Daniella literally left Luca for Luca's brother and it killed him. It ripped him apart inside. 


But he still kept tabs on Daniella, even after she married his baby brother. He couldn't stay away from her. He loved her and hated her all at once. Once his brother died he went back for her. He wanted to break her heart. To rip her to shreds just like she hurt him. 

I LOVED IT. LOVED LOVED LOVED. I don't even have any other words for it. I loved how Luca struggled with his hate and love for Daniella, the entire book. And Daniella, wow. I loved her too. She was a fantastic character that I couldn't help but connect with. She has had things so incredibly tough, not mention she is pregnant with her asshole, deceased husband's baby. 
The entire book was just amazing. That's the only way I can put it. There was so much tension, so much hatred and love. 
When everything finally comes to a head between the two, I cried. That's right, I actually sat on the couch sniffling like a damned baby.




Darling delivered it perfectly though and I couldn't have been happier when the book ended with a HEA. 
This book was so amazing. You should go and buy it now. Seriously GO!
