BLURB

KHAOS 
I’m not living under any kind of false pretenses here. I know I’m basically a rapper’s attitude with R&B feelings and a pop star’s bank account. 
There were a lot of ways to describe my unconventional lifestyle of part time cult member and full time showman. 
Risk taker. 
Exuberant. 
And my personal favorite adjective: undomesticated. 
I surrounded myself with people who liked a good time but left after they served their purpose of making sure I felt nothing but top shelf feelings. 
I wasn’t about to be like my brothers who let the darkness eat away at their vindication. The only crime I had ever committed was waving the glory of being invited, of saying I came and conquered around like a badge of honor. 
Spoiler alert: None of that earned me respect. 
There’s only one girl who managed to rob me of my fake smile...and my watch. 

GRACE 
I was a throw away, street trash, a child abandoned and scooped up by the bad people you only hear about after they get caught. 
I was hard in a way people found uncomfortable and determined too much work to rehabilitate into society again. I was found guilty over and over enough to let the bad things become who I am, blurring the lines between freedom and a jail sentence. 
Fraud. 
Thief. 
And my least favorite: fake girlfriend to a scary ass kingpin. 
Forced out of a childhood I was surrounded by darkness, evil, and the kind of cutthroat loyalty that landed your body so mutilated they wouldn’t be able to tell who you were if you fell out of obedience. 
They accepted me like family and there’s no quitting your family. 
I had the respect to match my rap sheet. 
There’s only one guy who managed to exonerate me… and my invisible wings.






EXCERPT

I was too consumed to keep my hand going when I exhaled right along with her while I watched her features melt into a kind of bliss I chase daily.
Wasting no time Birdy got up from the bed, holding all of my attention, crawling on her hands and knees straight for me. That same burning sensation from not breathing took up the space in my chest when she kneeled down between my legs.
The same stare wasn’t breaking between us, it was like she was willing me to now come on demand. My hand moved painfully slowly, still too determined to split my focus between her and getting off.
I would choose her every time.
Her still labored voice whispered, “I wanna taste you so I know if you taste like sin or secrets.”
Swallowing the lump in my throat I held up my hand and snapped my fingers before I decided to completely fuck the rules. She was sitting there staring up at me in her post-orgasm bliss asking to taste my sins and secrets - and I’m supposed to obey my own rules? Nah, please tell me how I could have that much strength to resist.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuckkk me.

EXCERPT

“I’m sick of you pushing me away. Get out of the way of our happiness, Hope. We need each other.” His fingers find their way inside of me, and I suck in a breath as he plays and brings me to the brink of having an orgasm. Right here in a fucking vegan restaurant. 
Wait, is it really hot in here? Has someone turned the heat on? 
His mouth takes mine, muffling my sighs and moans as I concentrate on increasing this ecstatic explosion quickly rising. 
“Oh shit.” I grab on to him, and try to grind against his hand. Shit, shit, shit. “I’m nearly there.” I keep moving my hips, wanting him to bring me undone. Suddenly, he pulls away and slowly brings his fingers up to his mouth. “What are you doing?” I nearly leap on him to finish what he started. 
He sucks on his fingers, and winks. “You want me to finish?” I’m nodding furiously. “Then come to my house tonight.” He opens the door, and walks out. 
What the actual fuckity fuck, fuck, just happened?



AUTHOR BIO

STRONG, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS CHARACTERS. 

**Write something worth reading**

I'm Margaret and I'm a self-published author.

Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book - Ugly, and my YA book - Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I'm completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the 'perfect' woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren't just about the romance. They're about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

Series: Krasnov Brothers
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Mafia/Dark Romance
Release Date: December 7, 2020
 

I am her bodyguard.
I’m her only hope. 
I’m going to break her, teach her, train her.

I cannot stand this prissy brat who practically throws herself at every guy she meets. Yet I’m tasked with babysitting her. The pakhan’s daughter tests my patience, makes me want to break out in uncontrolled violence, or maybe just throw her down to show her what all her teasing does to a real man.

She’s untouchable. Until a Russian rival mafia comes seeking revenge. I’m about to teach the printsessa a lesson she’ll never forget, and I guarantee she’s the one who will be taking my orders from now on. 

The Russian Bodyguard is book 3 in the Krasnov Brothers series. No cliffhangers. No cheating. Includes vivid, steamy scenes. Can be read as a standalone.


✯✯5 Maksim Filled Stars!!!✯✯


Omg I’ve wanted this story since I read The Russian Thug!! I knew once Sasha and Maksim gave into their feelings for each other they were going to be explosive. 


We start off right after we left off. Arkady and Lucia are getting married and everybody’s that’s everybody is there. 


Maksim would like to just be able to enjoy his older brother’s wedding but unfortunately for him he’s on the clock 24/7. His job is to be a full time babysitter to Sasha, who’s the only daughter to Yuri Zolotov. Maksim is tasked with keeping her safe and alive no matter the costs. 


Maksim and the his brothers don’t get to enjoy the wedding long bc they’re ambushed and Sasha is kidnapped. Luckily, Maksim has gps on her and gets to her quick. 


The last thing Sasha thought she’d been doing that day was being taken by somebody and then having to get dirty in the process. That wasn’t the worst part. 


The Zolotov Bratva is under attack over something that happened years ago with Yuri and another Bratva and now they’re coming for payback. 


Yuri knows what to do to keep his only daughter safe. Sasha will marry Maksim. Sasha is instantly against it but Maksim agrees immediately. 


Maksim lets Sasha know once they’re married she’ll do what he say’s no question’s asked or he’ll bend her over until she understands him. Sasha is both furious hot and bothered. 


If you read Arkady’s book you were prob hot like I was reading it. But, man Maksim was hotter!!  Sasha has always been a pain in his backside but lately she’s gotten under his skin for different reasons and he wasn’t sure how he felt about them. 


Safe and Maksim are usually at each other’s throat’s fighting for everything that you can imagine. Now, they’re married, living alone in a small place and they’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop with their enemies. They’ve also given into their desires. 


OMG I read this book in a day!! I was wondering what was going to get Sasha and Maksim together after them hating each other for so long. It was so much better then I could’ve ever thought up myself. 


After reading all about the Krasnov brothers and the Russian mafia life. These brother’s are equally dangerous and hot and they’re all on my favorite list. 


I’m equally attracted to another set of mafia brothers we met in The Russian Thug. Jo’s brothers who are now allied to the Krasnov and the Zolotov Bratva. I’m all for the O’ Sullivan brothers.  






Maksim’s chest heaved as he read me the riot act. “You are fucking impossible.”

“And you are the worst man I could ever have been shackled to!” 

His hand snapping out, he squeezed my cheeks hard. 

I tried not to flinch, but his grip was vise-like. 

Maksim lowered his face to mine, his gunmetal irises just this side of demonic. “I really will beat your ass if you ever attempt to go out on your own again.”

“Do it!”

Releasing my face, he yanked me into his unyielding embrace. His mouth crashed over mine with a fury I’d never tasted before. 

I struggled, kicking at anything I could reach. 

He speared his tongue into my mouth, wildly claiming what he thought was rightfully his. Holding me caged against him, he drove a hand into my hair, angling my neck, trying to conquer me. 

I let out a strangled growl then let the rage and arousal explode out of me. 

Wrath, lust . . . I despised him. 

Desire, rage . . . I wanted some part of him. 

Maksim grunted when I licked between his lips, drawing me up his body so we collided in all the right ways—for once. 

We kissed so ferociously, clawing at each other, practically tearing into one another to get some kind of upper hand out of this pure madness. 

And still the heat roared. 

We broke apart just as forcibly as we’d clashed together, both of us breathing hard. 

“I hate you with every single fiber of my being,” I scathed.

“That makes two of us.” A hard sneer crossed his lips that had just been slanted across mine. 

Then, Maksim struck. 

He grabbed both sides of my blazer and ripped it open. Buttons popped off, pinging across the room. I looked down at my ruined leather jacket just as he tore if off my back. 

Breasts thrust against the corset that remained, I saw him through a haze of red when he slung the jacket aside like it was no more than a piece of rubbish. 

I launched back to smack him right across his face, but he captured my wrist in an iron grip. 

He towed me inexorably against him again, and all my feral instincts went into meeting his wild kiss. 

A loud groan thundered from his chest when I rolled my tongue over his then nipped at his bottom lip. His hands roved from my arms to my ass, and he cranked me right against his undeniable erection, which threw me back into that heady spiral of hate and lust. 

His sculpted features came slowly into focus when he drew back. 

A filthy grin the likes of which I’d never seen played across his lips that—goddamn him—had felt perfectly voracious against mine. “Shall I tell you what I’ve been thinking about?”

“What?” All the breath caught in my chest, my voice emerging raspingly. 

His smirk widened. He paced backward a couple of steps. Without taking his eyes off mine, he removed his tie. With a shift of his strong hands, he unbuttoned his shirt from top to bottom. A shrug of ropey shoulders, and he eased the material from his muscular tattooed torso. 

Then his fingers—the ones that had bit into the fleshiness of my ass—dropped to his trousers. 

The belt slithered and hissed like a snake when he removed it. He stepped out of his shoes, toed off his socks, went for the closure of his pants. 

His voice the same gruff timbre as always, he unzipped, saying, “I have been thinking about my cock in your mouth, Sashenka.”

✯Release Review✯ Far from Lost (Far Series #3) by Kate L. Mary

 

Title: Far from Lost
Author: Kate L Mary
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic
Publisher: Twisted Press
Publication Date: December 7th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

How far would you go to save what you thought you’d lost during the apocalypse?

 

After learning her father is alive, going with Heath had seemed like a no-brainer to Rowan. Her dad was all she had left, after all. The only remaining piece of the life she’d loved so much. But their reunion doesn’t go quite the way she expected it to, and Rowan finds herself alone and uncertain, making her wish she’d taken the time to think things through before making a decision that might cost her so much.

 

Kiaya has always been logical and resourceful, and she’s confident if she and Devon work together, they’ll be able to figure out a way to get Rowan back. But there’s trouble brewing in the group, making Kiaya question who she can trust. Even worse, she can’t help wondering if staying at the school is the right decision at all.

 

Between the zombies walking the earth, the wildfire that shows no signs of stopping, and dangerous survivors lurking both in town and in their very own halls, it feels like the whole world is out to get them. Still, Kiaya is determined to not only save Rowan, but to also figure out a way to keep everyone she cares about safe.


✯✯5 Rowan & Kiaya Filled Stars!✯✯


Wow finally!!! 
Far from Safe ended with a cliffhanger that had me cursing at the author. That’s not new bc she likes to end things with you on the edge of your seat and looking for the next book to release. 


We legit pick up in the same place that we left off but..... I love the author gives you the last book two recap from Kiaya’s POV!!! I’d been wanting inside her and Devon’s mind since the very beginning.  


Rowan has been taken by Heath and his goons and they’re headed back to the hospital when Rowan’s dad is. Kiaya, Devon and Gabe are headed back to the school. Both Rowan and Kiaya are wondering wtf is next. 


Rowan is known for acting on her emotions and not thinking ahead and getting her and her friends into situations that end with them fighting for their lives and this is no different. But, this time Rowan realizes she needs to stop doing that and she needs to start thinking things thru more carefully and logically like Kiaya. 


Getting to the hospital Rowan sees their setup is amazing but Heath is running it like it’s his way or the highway. Instead of being allowed to see her father she’s getting a shock collar put on her neck and put into a room for probation. 


Rowan won’t tell Heath where Gabe and her friends are staying. She sees death and revenge in his eyes and she won’t be a part of it. Regardless of the world they’re living in. 


Kiaya and Devon must think of a way to get Rowan back. Kiaya knows it won’t be easy since Gabe doesn’t listen very well to what she has to say. 


When Lane gets hurt Kiaya knows she’s gotta take her to the hospital. Gabe doesn’t think it’s a good idea since Lane’s ex is Heath and he wants both Lane and Gabe dead. 


But, if they could get Lane help and get closer to getting Rowan back with them that’s a chance everyone is willing to take.  


This book was mind blowing!! Kiaya, Rowan, Devon and the rest of their group didn’t have to fight as many zombies as the first two books but don’t be mistaken. In this new world where they’re surrounded by zombies and there’s no cops people are acting out and there’s nobody to stop them. 


These friends will do everything to get back together but what happens when they realize they’ve been traveling with a monster this entire time. Plus they know they’ve made enemies that aren’t going to just disappear. ESP in this new world. 


This is one storyline and characters I’m loving and that I not only want more but I need more of so Kate L Mary I need you to hurry up asks write the next part of their story.
