Review: Demon Ensnared - Jenn Stark

Demon Ensnared Demon Ensnared by Jenn Stark
My rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐ stars

Another great book from the world of Jenn Stark. This is the fourth book in the Demon Enforcers series where we hear Gregori of the Syx’s story. Gregori is an empath and has tried to avoid all human emotions since becoming a demon, which seems easier said then done when you have lived for thousands of years. In this story, he must work with Angela Stanton, a worker for the government who holds her own secrets and pain but must trust Gregori to keep her safe.

There is a lot going on in this book, demons aren’t acting like they should, secrets are being kept and past baggage keeps rearing its ugly head. Like most of Jenn’s books there is a lot of emotions going on between he characters both independently and together which just keep you gripped from start to finish.

This is an action-packed book with lots of tests being thrown at all of the characters. The characters of Gregori and Angela are great, showing strong characters with deep emotions really does work and that vulnerability is okay. As always, the Archangel Michael pops up and love him or hate him, he’s always got something to say.

As a long time, fan of Jenn Stark all of her series are worth reading so you need to get started right now!

ARC received for a fair and honest review.

Review: Cathedral - Addison Cain

Cathedral Cathedral by Addison Cain
My rating: ⭐⭐⭐ stars

Cathedral by Addison Cane is a dark read which shows the story of Jade and Malcolm and what people or rather vampires will do to survive in a world set against them. The book starts out hot and heavy with Jade and her group of men that she must bed to produce the next heir, whilst fending off her sadistic father Darius. In the background is Malcolm trying to keep her safe (at least you think he is). This book has a lot of interesting twists and turns, characters that all have their own agenda and some very dark, raunchy scenes between jade and the various people that she must bed.

We also see into Jade’s memories on why she is the way she is and what she must do to survive, especially since she is seen as weak in the vampire work. It is hard to imagine her being so strong, sweet and fiercely independent when you read what has been done/what is being done to her. Malcolm is sort of an anti-hero as for me I never quite knew what side he was on and whether he had some ulterior motives.

This book was a good read for me and I feel that I should have read catacombs beforehand so that I understood what is going on. I definitely think that this book isn’t for everyone mainly die to its dark content which not everyone will appreciate. But if you like dark, twisted novels with no reprieve, then this is certainly the one for you.

Review: Darling - Gabrielle G.

Darling Darling by Gabrielle G.
My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ stars

OMG, this book! It is full of so many feels, angst, issues and love. It is a definite page-turner and so beautifully written. Darling is the first book in the Darling Devils Series by Gabrielle. G. It is written about Dan Darling, the lead singer of the band the Darling Devils. Here we see Dan help Anna one night when she is stood up by her girlfriends and runs into her ex and his new wife. We find out a lot about Anna’s past and what has led her to be somewhat bitter about men and relationships in general but this all changes when she meets Dan. Although she doesn’t end up with him straight away and she is a bit shy about allowing him into her heart, there is definitely a connection between the two characters and this book follows that connections, mis-communication and building of the relationship throughout this book. The book also deals heavily with mental health issues relating to both of the characters and how they come to understand each other and themselves better through time and acceptance.

This was a wonderfully written book. It had enough of a story-line to keep you involved and some really sexy moments. There were also moments of genuine heart-break where you felt for both of the characters immensely, both due to outside forces in their relationship as well as their own baggage.

Dan Darling is a really good character and to say that he is flawed is an understatement, but it doesn’t deter from how much you really like him and are routing for him to get his act together. The fact that he has some amazing friend also help and it will be interesting to read their stories in the series.

This is a great story, with great characters. A must read for any romance fans.

Blurb:

Tennyson
In a family filled with picturesque butterflies, I’m a moth. Camouflaged. The invisible, nerdy scientist who would rather study water and save the planet than don a dress and mingle in southern society. Unfortunately, having my nose in a book and eating goals for breakfast doesn’t bode well for a social life or my cobweb covered dating sector.

Then I met Grange. He’s a tormenter—an epic bully, but he’s promised to help me in my lackluster areas. He’s been ordered to fulfill service hours at my Aquatic Lab in Cape Cod, if I allow it.

He is bad, the worst. I’m talking wearing prison garb when I met him kind of awful. We all have our demons, but Corrick Granger’s seep into everything and everyone around him. Sure, I’d love his expertise on how to land a guy, but I’m not sure any man is worth dealing with an outcast Navy SEAL who has more issues than a magazine subscription.

Grange
One hazy mistake was all it took to ruin my life. Well, one mistake coupled with a chain of bad decisions, and a side of my hot temper. The court doled out an easy community service sentence. Never anything too harsh for a “hero.” I’ll be back at the Teams in six months, easy. I need to keep my cool, put my head down, and follow the rules.

A fiery redhead with something to prove is all that stands between me and my freedom. Tennyson is a maddening combination of know-it-all and knows-nothing. The type of woman who would cut off her own nose to spite her face, and yet when my one mistake snowballs into a life altering, soul-damning error, she’s undeniably there for me.

Even though I don’t deserve it.

Even though I’ve kept secrets.

And despite the fact I have become the monster she knew I would be.


About the Author:

Rachel grew up in a small, quiet town full of loud talkers. Her words were always only loud on paper. She has been writing stories and creating characters for as long as she can remember.

He was the most gorgeous man I’d ever seen in real life.
Little did I know he was also the cruelest.
I went from starstruck to stunned the moment his cynical eyes cut through me.
I can’t tell you what it was that made him want to punish me. But from that day forward the brooding recluse of a man made it his goal to torment me.
I want to loathe him, and some days, I do.
But good or bad, nobody’s attention has ever tasted so sweet.
What do you do when you have a hate crush on your bully?
Worse yet, what do you do when he’s also your teacher?
