Donnie by Jennifer Marcia

    Donnie Lowe never stopped loving the first woman to own his heart. She was his secret lover ten years ago. At the time, he wanted to protect her. She was young and innocent with her whole life ahead of her. He was the President of a gun-running MC. He didn’t have a right to corrupt her, but he’d done it anyway. Aurora Dewitt isn’t the same woman she’d been a decade ago when she asked her lover to kill the man who had murdered her little sister. Having left the only man who had ever really owned her heart because he didn’t want her in his world, she clawed her way to the top of her own criminal enterprise. Aurora didn’t need a man to do her dirty work now. They had every intention of leaving the past where it belonged. They didn’t know working together to stop the Cartel would bring back so many memories. It was only supposed to be a way to release stress; neither of them wanted to relive the rejection of their past together. How could they know they’d never stopped loving each other? If you like:– motorcycle clubs-criminal enterprises-second chance romance-age gap-spice-bad assery then Donnie is the book for you!

    The Rose by PD Alleva

      A dystopian science fiction thriller of telepathic evil greys, mysterious rebellion, martial arts, and Alien Vampires. Sandy Cox believed WWIII was over. But for those Alien Vampires, War Has Just Begun. Forty-eight hours after a World War III treaty is signed, Sandy Cox awakens in an underground compound unable to move. Tied to machines she screams for help but no one answers. At least no one human. And they’ve taken her unborn child. Phil is a rebel freedom fighter who has had more than his share of Alien Vampires. Armed with THE BLADES, a sacred alien martial art, he enters the compound on a mission to find Sandy. But as he battles through the compound, Phil discovers Sandy has her own agenda. Finding her stolen child is all that matters. But the vampires have their own plan and Sandy’s baby is at the heart of their diabolical plot. Joined by a crew of rogue soldiers, they must navigate the underground compound, battling genetically mutated humans, aliens and monsters. When battling Alien Vampires, one thing is certain… Get Ready To Bleed! My Review: This book! This book is just absolutely brilliant! Incredibly written, a story that is gripping and quite literally left me stunned at several places throughout. We’ve got a world war 3, land devastated by war, people in refugee camps taken to underground laboratoriums, mass murders and to top it all of ALIEN VAMPIRES! The way this whole scenario comes together is so incredibly brilliant you’ll have to read… Read More »The Rose by PD Alleva

      In Darkness: Vampire by L. Diane Wolfe

        Souls shrouded in darkness… Stuck working as a barmaid for her demanding father, Anna dreams of adventure. When mysterious strangers enter the bar, she overhears they seek Zancrela, an ancient fortress filled with treasure and a magical library. Taking her chance, she offers to guide them. The conditions: deliver Zancrela or die. As they journey through the wilderness, she discovers their secret: they are vampires. And most view her as food. One takes interest in her and her heart dares to hope, but it might not be enough to change her fate. Will Anna find Zancrela or become a vampire morsel? I must say I had no idea I would love this book as much as I did. I also didn’t expect to devour it in two days, but I did! Everything from the plot to the characters to the world it takes place works to reel in the reader. I was enthralled. Anna comes across as a sweet, innocent girl, working hard to follow her dreams. Her craving for knowledge and a life out from under her father’s reign drives her motivations. She is also the key to finding Zancrela, a location Victor and his clan have been searching for for months now. Not knowing what she’ll get herself into, she offers to guide the group if they’ll allow her access to Zancrela’s library upon their arrival. During their journey, she shows more strength and bravery than any of her companions would expect of a mere human. She may… Read More »In Darkness: Vampire by L. Diane Wolfe

        Ghosts of East Baltimore by David Simmons

          Save the Eastside, save the world. In Baltimore, Worm has just returned from a two year stretch in prison. When he finds out that his hometown is being brutally destroyed by a dangerous new chemical, Worm is reluctantly catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with chaos and destruction. Can one man save the city before his 9:00 p.m. curfew at the halfway house? The book started out great.Worm’s character is well written and the whole scene of him getting out and thinking about a new beginning, no matter how hard it would be to achieve was all great. Then he starts talking to Simone and I get lost a bit. All those big fancy, or maybe not fancy but definitely very specific, words he uses in the conversation made me wish I had a dictionary. But then again, needing a dictionary to decipher what is supposed to be a normal conversation seems like an overkill.For quite a long time Worm just wonders the streets of Baltimore and you’ll get the whole history of the city. I believe I might be a bit too young to have enjoyed the recount.I’m sure Worm’s childhood flashbacks were important in shedding the light into his past. The way it connected to his current situation was rather well done. But the whole flashback itself included a whole lot of words I did not understand, again.I expected Worm to get in trouble a lot sooner than he did, and meanwhile I was already stumbling through conversations… Read More »Ghosts of East Baltimore by David Simmons

            A terrifying mix of drugs, fear and pure need forced my hand. I didn’t necessarily want to mind control the Magical Authorities auditing the Charbon Institute’s broken system.

Operation DUMP has to free me from my magic’s lust-filled need so I can remove my dark stain from the people trapped in my spell before I drag the men I love down with me.

Class Studies is a fast burn, reverse harem, dark bully romance with M/M/F and M/F themes. The trilogy is a college-age academy setting, 18+. All three books are written and complete the story.
