Ruin by CD Reiss - REVIEW

Ruin...I am more in love with Capo than before. That man can ruin me any time he wants. Holy f**k balls! Raw, dirty and surprisingly touching in a murderous way. I was so on edge with this one. The plot will grip you in its claws up to the very end. Who will live, who will was torture!  

Theresa and Antonio are in the fight of their lives...Antonio wants to make a break from the business but it doesn't come without risk. He doesn't know of any other way to protect Theresa...who doesn't want his protection and doesn't realize the gravity of their situation until the bullets are zinging past her. She has been the prim and proper lady for so long, this new sensual side of her that craves the animal in the Capo makes her resent him. But she can't deny her feelings for him are real or genuine any more than his. They are caught in each other's trap.

“I’m already going to hell. Grazie.” I pushed him away, and he grabbed my jaw, holding me still while he put his nose next to mine and spoke into my mouth. “You’re a loaded gun. Do you see that? You’re from a different world, but you smell like home to me. I haven’t been to Napoli in ten years, but whenever you’re near me, I smell olive flowers. My heart gets sick with thirst, but the water is poison.”


“I’m drowning, Contessa.”

CD throws a few curves into the story, forcing Antonio and Theresa to make a desperate last ditch choice to live the rest of their days together...but more walls are put in their path...death doesn't come easy.

Ruin was a fast paced, hot read. A definite hit on my list!

The Salvation of Daniel

After Mae, I was devastated, my heart a torn bloody mess.  That book didn't leave one part of my soul untouched.  I'll admit, I was terrified to read The Salvation of Daniel but I just couldn't stop myself.  I had to know where the story was going to lead...I knew with DH, it would be down some dark, twisted path but I was going to take that journey no matter the cost.  

Daniel's Salvation is about the cost of choices and how high a price we are willing to pay.  There are some curves thrown in here, so be ready to catch.  I don't want to give anything away.  This is another where the unknown is part of the draw and you don't want to read the spoilers.  What I can tell you is you will see a completely different Daniel...his demons will make brief appearances but he is working towards his salvation for his dark past.  But he isn't working alone.  There is another power-player with high stakes in the game.  

Connie's roll in this book totally threw me, actually the whole plot did.  I had no idea how deep the business actually went.  Who is against who, who is good, who is don't really know because so many lines are crossed and the shades are truly grey.  I will tell you it's a nail-biter.  I thought I would be guts would remain intact unlike The Decimation of Mae...but don't let your guard down.  

"I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to do this again. History had the nasty habit of biting you on the arse. Well for me, I had a feeling history would more than bite; it would slaughter."

Taint ~ Cover Has A Facelift...

Right now, you're probably asking yourself two things: Who am I? And, what the hell are you doing here? Let's start with the most obvious question, shall we?
You're here, ladies, because you can't f*ck.
Oh, stop it. Don't cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls. You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you're going to hear that word a lot. And you're going to say it a lot. Go ahead, try it out on your tongue. F*ck. F***ck. Ok, good. Now where were we? If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you're a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle. For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You've been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I'm done with you.
And who am I? Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I'm the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.
I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores. Now...who's first?
