Amo Jones-Wicked

We’re back with a new Amo Jones book. Amo’s books are all dark, and very twisty. Seriously twisty. I mean, think about the twistiest thing ever, and double it. Wicked is no different. This book is sometimes so twisty that it ends up going straight. This book does take place in the same world as Antichrist, which I reviewed here, and Sicko, which I did not.

Wicked is the story of Wicked (yes, that’s his name) and Ruby. She is a Mafia princess, he is a guy from the wrong side of the tracks who just killed his father after the man killed his mother. Wicked just wanted to make sure his beloved younger sister, Poppy, is safe.

Shortly after Wicked pulls the trigger on his father, an unknown man in a suit shows up with cops. He tells Wicked and Poppy to pack a bag and come with him. He ended up taking them to his house, where he introduces Ruby to Wicked and Poppy. Ruby and wicked are both 17, Poppy is 14. Papa leaves, after warning Wicked away from Ruby, which, how well do you think that’s going to work?

So, Papa takes Wicked away for a little while, so that he can get into La Famiglia. When Wicked comes back, Ruby notices that he is different. They had had an explosive interlude before he left, but he’s not the same guy now. And he’s put in charge of her security. Instead of a gala, Ruby ditches him and runs off to the family’s lake house for a party, where Poppy is too. But then, something happens, and Poppy disappears. Wicked shows up, and he takes Ruby with him to try to find Poppy.

I like Ruby. She has a lot going on. She might look and act like the perfect Mafia Princess, but she is a lot smarter than people give her credit for, I think. She’s also a bit more ruthless than other people think she is. She is strong and she owns herself and her power. She will also do whatever she needs to do to protect her family, and frankly, I wouldn’t want to get in her way.

Wicked. Hmmmm. Sometimes I hated him, sometimes I didn’t. He is a very interesting character, no matter how I feel about him. He is very cagy. He would be a great chess player, I think. He would probably know all the moves from all the games you might play with him at any point.

There was a lot happening in this book, and yeah, it was good and it did keep me interested, so that’s all good. Go check it out. Happy reading!

K Webster-Teacher of Nothing

K is back and she has brought us one of her delightfully filthy age gap, teacher/student stories. Teacher of Nothing introduces us to a new family, and I expect that we’ll be seeing more of this family in the future, but for right now, it’s all Callum and Willa.

Callum is a high school teacher. A big part of why he is a teacher is to spite his dad. Callum’s family basically owns the town that they live in, and all of his siblings have done what Daddy Dearest wanted with their lives. But there are a lot of reasons why Callum wants to spite his dad. The biggest one being that Dear Old Dad fucked Callum’s HS girlfriend, got her pregnant, and married her. In fact, Callum’s twin half-sibs are now students at his school. He seems to get along with them well enough. His nephew is also a student at the school, and the kids are all good friends.

Then there is Willa. She is a student in Callum’s stats class. She is really smart, but nearly invisible, except to her asshole step-brother who is a huge fucking creep, and I mean, huge. He bullies her at school, he bullies her at home. But Willa only has eyes for her teacher. And he only has eyes for her.

Callum can’t get Willa off his mind. He stares at her during class, he does what he can to make her life easier. The problem is that he doesn’t want to be like his dad, and screw an 18 year old like his dad did. But he is just drawn to Willa and nothing seems to distract him from her.

I get Callum being mad at his dad, but I kinda feel like it’s been nearly 20 years, maybe it’s time to just let it go. I mean, there are a lot of other reasons he’s angry with his dad, and I totally get those, but the whole fucking Callum’s girlfriend deal shouldn’t really be one of them. At least in my opinion.

I think Willa is doing the absolute best that she can. Until Callum came along, she really had no one on her side. Her step-father is a monster, her mother is a druggie, and her step-brother is weirdly fascinated with her. She’s been on her own for too long. Callum’s younger relatives take her under their wings, which helps her just as much as Callum being into her did. It was good for her to have people her age around her, and they helped in many ways.

Small update

Yeah, I know I’ve been terrible at blogging for a while, but life, you know? Anyway, I have a small ask. It’s not something that I would normally do, but this is not normal.

So, here goes. Sometime Friday 10/14 into Saturday 10/15, my brother-in-law passed away. It was in his sleep, so hopefully it was peaceful. His health hadn’t been great, but no one knew it was that bad, including himself. Looking at the bright side, he’s in a place where he is happy, healthy, and with his beloved mother.

On the less bright side, we are now trying to figure out how to pay his final expenses. To that end, I have set up a GoFundMe. I’m not expecting anyone to help, I know that life is tough on everyone right now. But, if you do donate to it, I will be eternally grateful. If you can’t donate, then please hold my family in your thoughts right now, and I will be eternally grateful for that.

Alta Hensley-Ace of Diamonds

So, Alta has brought us the third book in her Wonderland series with Ace of Diamonds. We get the big finale of Lyriope and Nick’s story, and it is a doozy.

As a warning, there are likely to be spoilers from the previous one because the books take place one right after the other. As always, I will try to keep them down, but there are times it will be really hard to do, so continue at your own risk.

So, Lyriope has just left Nick in the company of her father. He won the auction, and now he’s taking her home so that she can be a real Morelli, or at least that’s what she thinks. What he’s really doing is taking her to his house so that he can sell her off as a bride to another family. Lyriope really has big hopes for this. She really just wants for her father to accept her, and she thinks that this is what happening right now, which, yeah, what do you really think? When they get to his house, he basically locks her in a room, and then proceeds to ignore her, unless he wants a command performance.

Nick, meanwhile, is basically breaking down, at least in his very Nick way. He might not be sitting in his room crying, but he is plotting. One night he sneaks into Lyriope’s room and, oh yeah, torches Old Man Morelli’s garage full of beautiful and expensive collector cars. Then, he decides that he’s going to have a Wonderland, and it’s going to be an orgyriffic time, and he wants an opinion invite to all the Morellis, just to show that they haven’t beat him. And of course, Lyriope shows up. And show up she does!

Lyriope really went through a lot in this book. Her dad is a right prick, and frankly, that’s being nice to him. He really is just ugh. I think that Lyriope really needed this time with her “father” because she really needed to see what he was like and to get past her fantasy about being a happy family. I mean, he could’ve gotten to know her at any time in her life, or hell, even give her family some support. Which really should’ve given her an idea, I think.

Nick is Nick, he has plans upon plans upon plans. I think that there are times that Lyriope surprises him, which had to be shocking to him. He definitely helped her grow into the queen she is, and he was there for her.

This was a great story and I really enjoyed watching their journey.

EXCERPT
I hate that I have to share. I’ve never been good at sharing
anything in my life. I want us back in Italy. Just us, under the Tuscan sun, never to be apart. No

eyes on her. Not a single soul deciding if they have a chance getting in her panties. No one
looking at her but me. Me.
Selfish?
No.
Possessive?
Yes.
If I’d have my way, I’d keep Lyriope locked in a cage with the
only key belonging to me. She is the pure definition of perfection, and for some unknown
reason, I was the lucky bastard who got the privilege of calling her mine. Even if temporarily.
Even if she was mine in a fucked-up way. Even if I had to take it. And yes, I most certainly took
it.

I had purposely kept an open invite to every single Morelli to
Wonderland. No hard feelings… at least on the surface. Come and play with me in Wonderland,
motherfuckers. Come play. It’s my way of keeping my enemies close at all times, and it’s in my
domain. Had I expected any to attend so closely to the Italy incident? No. So, to see her
unexpected visit with Sasha doesn’t exactly have me surprised, just amused that this girl does
exactly what she wants and how she wants to do it. Her balls are bigger than any thug at this
party. I’m sure Sasha being the devil on her shoulder didn’t hurt in having her return to
Wonderland. I’m not sure if I should thank Sasha or—

I notice my security—led by Harrison—are close behind them
trying to be subtle, knowing damn well I didn’t plan for her to be here, but are going to do
whatever they can to keep her safe. They know me well. I can see that Harrison isn’t pleased,
but he wasn’t going to argue with me when I told Martha to let them through the door. After all, I
did say all Morellis are on the guest list.

A black dress that shows off every single curve of her body has
me paralyzed and unable to take my eyes off her. Not only does she come to my Wonderland
unannounced, but she also has to wear a dress that tempts everyone to set eyes on her. Her
shapely legs in those black and red-soled heels go on forever. Straight to that pussy I haven’t
been able to get my mind off.

Her taste is like heroin to a hopeless junkie, and I shake for
another fix.

She’s wearing pearls that hang to her lower belly. Pearls that
symbolize the new life she’s living now. She’s no longer the poor hustler her mother raised her
to be. No, she’s now the daughter of Bryant Morelli and though I see she’s not truly comfortable

in that skin, my fingers twitch to take hold of those pearls and rub them over every inch of her
body.
Rich looks good on her.
God, I want her. I want her again, and again, and
again.

I’m tempted to repeat history and kidnap her, tie her up in my
wine cellar, and parade her naked ass for all my staff to see that my queen has returned to the
palace.

I want everyone to know this woman is mine, and only mine.
Even if I have to take her again.

And fuck me… she is hot as hell.
When did her eyes sparkle so much? Even in the shadowed
room of the warehouse and from this distance, I can see them. I can feel them. Those damn
eyes. To an unsuspecting spectator she’d appear so pure and innocent, when I know she is
anything but. My perfect girl, I liked to dirty up. She liked it fucking filthy, which makes me crave
her more than anything in the world. She is the greatest possession that I don’t have. She’s an
antique I need. She’s a priceless heirloom that should be on a mantel. My mantel.

 
 

 
 
Blurb:
The winner takes all…
I had her. She was mine. They took her away.

Lyriope Morelli is the dream I’ve been chasing. My obsession
isn’t gone, my hunger’s not satiated. I won’t rest until I find her and claim her again. I won’t rest

Skye Warren-Two for the Show

Skye has given us the second book in Eva and Finn’s series with Two for the Show. This is part of the larger Morelli/Constantine series. There is also a connection to the book I reviewed last week by Skye and Amelia Wilde because Carter, the MMC in that book, is Eva’s brother. It’s a small world in this universe.

As a quick refresher, Eva is a Morelli, and she keeps her family running well. Her mother wants to worry her off, Eva doesn’t want it. Finn comes to a party where Eva is and is being badgered by her mom. Finn talks Eva into running away with him. Eventually, they end up faking an engagement to get people off her back. Finn isn’t worried because he’s never getting married due to the family curse.

OK, from here is stuff about this one. There will probably be some spoilers, but as usual, I will try to keep the spoilers down. I make no guarantees though, so if you are interested in this but you haven’t read the first one yet, then be careful. You have been warned.

So, Finn has just basically eviscerated Eva, and she feels like her heart has been ripped out of her chest. She’s holding it together, but not well. Plus, she found out some really interesting news right after Finn told her to sling her hooks. There’s just so much going on, and she isn’t sure how to deal with it, so she’s focusing on her sister’s wedding, which of course, Eva planned. It’s going well when all of a sudden, Finn walks in, and the world basically crashes down.

Finn is dealing with his own reactions to his actions. He keeps trying to tell himself that he did the right thing, and every time he sees his dad, he’s just more and more convinced that he did the right thing. No matter how horrible he feels about it. Then he walks into a wedding reception and everything changes.

I feel like Eva has so much on her shoulders. She takes on so much, and she really does hold all the Morelli offspring together, I think. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but other people in her family should step up too. Although Leo is always there for her, threatening to kill any men who upset her. I like that she really isn’t a damsel in distress. While having Finn rush in to rescue her from her mother isn’t a bad thing, it isn’t a necessary thing. She really can hold her own. At least in public, most of the time. I also like that she calls Finn on his bullshit. Which is good, because he needs someone to do that.

I mostly like Finn. I think that he is a good man. He really does have the weight of the world on his shoulders, and while his little brother does try to help, Finn is hiding the secret so hard that it is just impossible to do much else. I do feel sorry for him that he has to deal with this so much. I am angry at him about some things though. I think he’s just so fatalistic about what is coming that he sees it as a foregone conclusion and isn’t willing to fight it for himself. I think that he should get all the testing, evaluations, imaging, whatever he can have done. He’s superrich, and he can afford to have it all done.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Skye Warren-Two For the Show Available Now!

Two for the Show by Skye Warren is now live!
