Synopsis:

Filthy Gods (American Gods 0.5), an all-new Sexy New Adult Romance by R. Scarlett.

Prelude in the American Gods series.



Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them.



And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.



As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.



The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.



Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.

I'd sworn I'd never give him the upper hand, until...



The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?



He just discovered it…and now he has all the power.

Review:

R. Scarlett is still a new author to me. A few months ago a I read When Sinners Kneel and it left me wanting more! I was excited to learn that she was writing a New Adult Contemporary Romance. This is the genre I read the most so I was looking for something new to catch my attention. Filthy Gods was an excellent introduction to the American Gods Series and I can't wait to follow all of these American Gods and the ladies who will make them fall hard.

Juliette Monroe is about to make a deal with the enemy. Nathaniel Radcliffe is her most fierce competition at Yale.  They both will stop at nothing to achieve their personal goals. They are rivals, but one deal is about to make them become something more. Nathaniel is on a mission to conquer Juliette and his captivating ways are about to create a havoc in her life. Will she get burned by the enemy?

I really enjoyed Juliette and Nathaniel's journey. Even if their story was fast-paced, I really connected with them as characters. Sometimes it's really difficult for me to connect with the main characters in a novella, but it was not the case with Filthy Gods. R. Scarlett's writing style is captivating and her characters grab your attention from the moment you meet them! 

Juliette was a fierce and confident heroine that I loved to cheer for. Nathaniel is a dirty-talking, sexy and intense hero that will make you melt! Their chemistry was super hot and the steamy stolen moments that they shared left me fanning myself more than once! 

The supporting cast of characters was intriguing and I can't wait to read their story. We got a little glimpse of James, Gabe and Arsen. OMG!! I'm so intrigued by Arsen!!! I'm really excited to read what will happen next! Excellent debut to the American Gods Series!

Rating:

I give, Filthy Gods, by R. Scarlett, 4.5 intriguing, sexy, tempting, falling for the enemy stars!

Synopsis:

He’s a reckless cowboy. 
She’s a heartbroken ballerina. 
Is their love strong enough to break free from their painful pasts? 

College student Jack McAllister drowns his guilt with booze and bar fights. But no amount of hard drinking will ever change the fact that his parents are dead and his older brother sacrificed everything to give him a better future. When he sees a beautiful dance student getting shoved around, he finally finds something worth fighting for. 

Giselle Stratford is tired of living in the shadow of her dead brother. Nothing she does is ever good enough for her demanding mother, including her decision to attend a small Texas college. So when a handsome country boy stands up to her abusive dance partner, she knows she’s found someone who loves her exactly the way she is.  

But after a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity opens up back home, Giselle's mother will stop at nothing to sabotage their relationship—even if it means bankrupting her new boyfriend’s tight-knit, cash-strapped family. When the world threatens to rip them apart, Giselle and Jack must find the courage to confront their past traumas to create a bright new future together. 

Stillwater Dusk is the first standalone novel in a heartwarming romance series. If you like boundary-breaking love stories, contemporary cowboys, and journeys of self-healing, then you’ll love L.G. Castillo’s romantic family saga.

Review:

A new book from author L.G. Castillo always brings a smile to my face. I love her writing style and how easily I can relate to her characters. Every single reading escape from this author has left me with a heart bursting with love. I was over the moon excited to meet these new characters in Stillwater Dusk.

Get ready to meet the McAllister Brothers!! In this book, we follow Giselle Stratford and Jack McAllister. One tragic night changed the entire destiny of the McAllister Brothers. Giselle Stratford enters Jack McAllister's life in the most unexpected moment. The sweet ballerina he meets is like a soothing balm to his soul. As days go by, they get to know each other and their bond grows. Their journey has many ups and downs, but their love story is stronger than any obstacle coming their way.

I really loved Giselle and Jack's sweet love story. It gave me all the feels. I have read many stories about rich girl/poor boy falling in love and no matter how many times authors will write about it, I always find a way to connect with each story. I loved how they each opened up about their life and how together they found their happy place.

Stillwater Dusk was a captivating reading escape filled with many fascinating characters. The McAllister Brothers and all the supporting cast in this book stole a piece of my heart. I love how strong this family is.  G-Daddy always brought a smile to my face and I love him to pieces!! This was an amazing reading escape and I can't wait for more!

I give, Stillwater Dusk, by L.G. Castillo, 4.5 sweet, captivating, love will conquer all stars!

Synopsis:

TANTILISING, SEXY….TABOO 

I’m allowed to crush, but blurring the lines is strictly forbidden. 

At one time, I had truly believed that I’d experienced enough drama in my life. 

Clearly, I’d been wrong. 

It all began the night before I was due to start my final year of school—the night of my eighteenth birthday. Since I had been considered “missing” for three years, I had failed to finish off the last year of my education. This was why I needed to let loose a little. I was turning eighteen and was finally legal to drink, so, why not? The next morning, I would be going to school with a bunch of ladies three years younger than I was. Even if it was for no other reason, I felt this entitled me to have a little fun. 

The night started off well enough: 
Girl meets boy. Girl gets dared to buy boy drink and kiss him within fifteen minutes of receiving said drink. 

It sounds like it would have been plain and simple, right? 

Wrong. 

I had no idea that his kiss would be the kiss to end all kisses. One taste of him, and I was lost for the first time in all my eighteen years. 

But I wasn’t meant to feel anything… Three years of living in Hell had taught me that. But, this man … just … awakened me. 

I went home that night feeling both alive and scared shitless at the same time. 

However, that wasn’t the worst of it. 

The very next day at assembly in school, we were all introduced to our new headmaster… 

None other than the very same man who had—just the night before—locked lips with me in the most hypnotic, take-your-breath-away kiss I had ever had. 

Yeah, I am seriously screwed. 

He’s a forbidden fruit that I long to taste again. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get that kiss out of my head. So badly, I want to escape him, his presence, his ... everything. 

It seems, however, that the universe has other ideas.

Synopsis:

Bane 

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud. 

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. 

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled. 

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently. 

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies. 

Jesse Carter 

Hot as hell, cold as ice. 

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap. 

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. 

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad. 

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack. 

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

Excerpt:


Bane 

Then. 

A liar. 

A con. 

A godless thief. 

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine. 

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win. 

Move the rooks around. 

Change the queen when necessary. 

Guard the king at all fucking times. 

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous. 

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once. 

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath. 

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall. 

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking. 

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery. 

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief. 

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar. 

I had all the ingredients to pull her in. 

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel. 

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her. 

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow. 

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin. 

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under. 

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me. “What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us. 

“Doesn’t matter, bro.” 

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw. 

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.” 

“I will not repeat myself a third time.” 

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on. 

“Jesse Carter.” 

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me. 

Before I even knew her. 

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood. 

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before. 

Before she became business. 

Before the truth caged her in. 

Before the secrets gushed out. 

I never did get to surf that day. 

My surfboard broke. 

Should have known it was an omen. 

My heart was going to be next in line. 

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

Review:


The new addition in L.J. Shen's Sinners of Saint Series is here and it was such an incredible reading escape! You can absolutely read Bane as a standalone, but I highly suggest you go back to book one of this series and meet all the incredible characters and fall in love with their stories.

Jessy and Bane's journey was extremely captivating. These two characters connected so well together. Bane was exactly the kind of person that Jessy needed in her life after everything that happened to her. It was beautiful to see their love grow. Bane is not the kind of person who gives his heart away. Until Jessy came along. He was completely captivated from the moment he laid eyes on her. I don't want to give too much away because everybody needs to fall in love with them just like I did.

Jessy and Bane's chemistry was intense, hot and passionate! They shared many special moments that made my heart beat faster. What happened to Jessy broke my heart and I loved how Bane slowly stole her heart by making her break out of her comfort zone. I really loved how Jessy took matters into her own hands and battled the demons from her past. She's a true warrior.

L.J. Shen always delivers an unputdownable reading escape! Her writing style is addictive and her characters unforgettable!  I highly recommend her books and I am positive that you will love her characters just as much as I do. Bane was a fantastic addition to the Sinners of Saint Series. 


Rating:


I give, Bane, by L.J. Shen, 4.5 sexy, passionate, intense, page-turning stars!
