Reckless Devotion: Book Two

Jennifer Domenico

BDSM, Erotica

Cover Designer: Wicked by Design

Blurb:
Gabriel and Mia’s story continues…

Intense. Passionate. Consuming. It was everything they both wanted—until it wasn’t.
When trust is shattered and doubt creeps in, Gabriel and Mia must decide if fighting for what they have is worth the compromise or if their devotion will only end in devastation.



MY REVIEW


Jennifer Domenico is my new heroine and I am her humble devotee. This review is very vague in terms of what happens as I can't say much without spoiling your read.

I love me a good BDSM or Dom/sub book, but only when the control is part of sex/playtime (be that in a club or at home). I hate it when (and often despite all agreement to keep it to the bedroom) suddenly the Dom/man decides it is o.k. to punish the sub/woman about things she says/does in her everyday life or at work. For me that is a HUGE turn off and a big NO - it's crossing the line from a consensual relationship to a domineering/controlling, and therefore abusive, one. 

Well Mia (the heroine of this book) feels the same and after reading Book 1 I couldn't see how the story would develop. To me the ending of the first book was what I wanted to happen, I didn't want Mia to loose any of her strength or independence. I was almost scared to read this as I was certain that it would be the usual case of "her will and decision making being subsumed by his" c**p. At this point I have to add that the first book is amazing and DOES need to be read before this one. 

I'm pleased to say that my fears were unfounded and this story developed in a way I could never have foreseen at the end of Book 1. I LOVED this story, and whilst the book was not as 'steamy hot' as the first one, this was more than made up for by the depth of emotion and the development of Mia and Gabriel as characters. They are so alive and believable that they felt real. 

I had half expected to either not finish the story or to end up throwing my kindle across the room in anger and frustration. But no, it remained gripped in my hand as I ferociously consumed every word of this book as quickly and thoroughly as I could. I didn't want to, and at times COULDN'T , put this down. In my wildest imaginings I wouldn't have dreamed up the plot line for this and yet it was perfect and exactly what I wanted to read.

The author is now high on my list of favourites and I am off to add all her books to my TBR list. If you are wondering about buying/reading this book all I can say is do so - but only after reading book 1 of course.



One day, many months ago, Jennifer Domenico went to sleep and a beautiful love story played out in her dreams.
When she awoke, she felt compelled to write it down. So she did. The result was her first novel, Turn Towards the Sun and a writing career was born.
Ms. Domenico lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her very Italian husband, a dog that adores her, two cats that tolerate her, and a wicked sweet tooth.

BLURB

A tortured soul meets a damaged family…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt of the past keep them apart?

Her whispered prayers break her...
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart-wrenching pleas. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. 

Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Cat’s Valley was to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.

Scars mar his body. Pain has left him in pieces…
Four years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and murmured rumors. 

Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, and I don’t deserve them, but now that they’ve stepped into my life, I’m not sure I can let them go.

*This book is intended for mature audiences, ages 18+. It may be enjoyed as a standalone!

My Review

500 stars isn't enough for this book.

Oh my (insert swear word) goodness. This was one difficult, emotional, dark and absolutely goddam amazing 

read. This book blew me away .... I've just finished reading it (in one long but single sitting) and am in a daze.

Holly and Tyler are both incredibly broken individuals and were written with such brutal honesty it made my heart hurt, but I loved it. Whilst their external scars will never heal can they help repair the internal scars that life has given them?

This isn't your typical romance story, but in its own twisted way it has its beautifully tender moments, its romantic scenes and one of the most wonderful connections I've read between the hero and heroine.

This isn't all about sexual chemistry. It doesn't follow the usual cliches. It takes everything you thought was necessary to make a good romance story, chews them up, spits them out and challenges you to find the right in everything that is wrong, to find the good through all the bad.

And it does it well, it does it MORE than well. It will draw you in, twist you up, tear you apart and yet make you feel wonder and amazement at the same time.

I need more Tyler and Holly, I need more light shining through the darkness. An awe inspiring, soul touching, heart rendering and unforgettable read.

My new spin-off series, Devils Wolves, launched in 2016 with the best-selling novel, Torn. There are several books planned for this series as well.

 Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.

Bound for Life by Alexis Abbott

Full Cover of Bound for Life
Bound for Life Ebook Cover

Blurb:

Bruno:

I gave up everything for her, and she never even knew it. When I saved her from the mafia, I traded my freedom for hers. I’ve never regretted it. Never looked back. I cut her out of my life to keep her safe. I did everything I could to protect her from the retribution of the Italian Mafia, but it wasn’t enough. They’re after her again, and all that’s standing between her and the darkest fate imaginable is me.

Serena:

It’s scary the things you can close your eyes to. Even after I was rescued from men who wanted to do the worst things to me, I went on with my life. I forgot all about the threats of the mafia, about what they forced me to do, and even the man who saved me from them. But now, my hero has returned, and just in a nick of time. Because the mafia is coming for me, and this time, I don’t know if we’re going to get out of this alive.

Excerpt:

The orange afternoon sun is on my back when I bring my car to a stop about a block away from the well-to-do little store on the corner of the street. When I turn my ignition off, I lean back and just stare at it, letting out a deep breath. How long has it been? The light playing off the glass window panes make it impossible to see inside the shop, but the sign outside is clear as ever: Bathing Beauty. I feel a smile on my face. As many mixed memories as it stirs up in me, there’s something comforting about knowing it’s still there, unchanged as ever. Maybe even a little nicer. All thanks to her. I catch a glimpse of myself in the car mirror. I’ve changed so much over the years. It feels like a lifetime ago that I was just a teenager, freshly landed in America. I kept my hair cut short back then, and my face was clean-shaven. I run a hand through the long locks that hang nearly to my shoulders now. It’s grown out thick and wavy. Even I have to admit it’s unkempt, and the short, coarse black beard on my face matches. My voice sounds different, too. I think back to the thick accent I had in those years that I was still learning English, fresh from the old country. I’m so used to it now that English almost sounds as natural as my native Italian on my tongue. I might as well be a different person. Better that way, I think. When I look into that mirror, I’m not sure I even see myself anymore. What I do see is the face of a man who’s done terrible things. A “made man,” they call us in this country. Mafioso. What are you really doing here, Bruno? My mind flashes back to her face, that gorgeous face that’s kept me going all this time. A bright candle in the darkness. That face doesn’t need to know fear ever again. It doesn’t need to know me. So why am I here, coming to risk dragging the past back? I don’t dare turn the ignition and drive off. I’ve made my decision, and I’m a man of my word. After all, I tell myself, I’m not here just to see her, to remind myself that she’s alive and living happily, that what I did for her was all worth it. I’m here to make sure she’s safe.

My Review

It's ages since I've read a good Sci-Fi Romance, and this is an excellent example of one.  I loved this story, it was full of action and adventure, deadly peril and intrigue.  

The hero, Seb, is super sexy but also sweet and vulnerable, whilst the heroine, Jenna, is strong, feisty and a definite go-getter.  The chemistry between them was not only hot and intense but you could feel it.  
The plot was excellent, with plenty of twists and turns that kept me gripped.  The writing is very good, I found the book so easy to read and could follow the plot with no effort.  The pace kept me engaged and I just couldn't wait to find out how the story would end.
This is the first book I've read by Jess Anastasi but it won't be the last - I will definitely be adding this author's work to my TBR list.

SYNOPSIS:

If the assignment is crazy, dangerous, or a little of both, Sub-Lieutenant Sebastian Rayne can’t help but take on the challenge. So when Command Intelligence tags him to fly one of their agents behind enemy lines, it seems like just another routine death-defying mission. Crash landing on the planet was a piece of cake, but the gorgeous agent he delivered safely to her meeting is now believed dead and he must return to retrieve her body.
After Agent Jenna Branson realizes her own people attempted to have her killed, she enlists the hot stick jockey’s help. His new mission? Sneak her back onto his ship to ferret out who wanted to get rid of her and why. But she fears her growing feelings for Seb have blinded her to his reckless insistence on helping her stay alive, and his rash behavior will cause them both to lose their lives.

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast. Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles. As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
