It was suppose to be a debt settled, just a price being repaid.
Instead love was born...
...from unpaid dues it bloomed.
See, that's the funny thing about love, you never expect it.
After losing her mother to cancer a few months prior to graduating, Bree Forbes was finally able to take some time away and enjoy her college days. That all changed in a blink of an eye the moment Bree came home for break. She didn't expect to find her dad strapped to chair, a gun pointed at his head.
Alzerro “Zerro” King wasn't a man to be messed with. Women flocked to him and men ran from him. He ruled the mafia with an iron fist and no one ever crossed him unless they wanted to pay the price. He believed the only way to pay for something, if unable to do so, was to do it in blood. Nothing got him harder than stringing someone up, and putting a bullet in their head.
That is until Bree.
One look is all it took for him to know she could pay for her father’s debt in many other ways… Ways that could get him hard.
Could a big city mafia king fall in love with the small town country girl? Would she be able to handle his dark and demanding ways? When push comes to shove, would Bree end up running only to be killed? Or would she sacrifice herself for love?
WHAT GOODREADERS ARE SAYING:
“ Alzerro “Zerro” King.. my God! That man is just.. don't know how to describe him. Take Q from Monsters in the Dark, take Caleb from Captive, take Fox from Destroyed, take Antonio Spinelli from Spin and Jessie from This Man and you have our Zerro. Mind blowing, right?! “ - Arijana
“ Bree is the epitome of innocence...or is she? Her depth of character, compassion, and comprehension of life's challenges have been hard earned. The love and loss she has endured will serve her well as she offers up her life to 'el ray' in a valiant exchange and effort to save her father from certain death. Never did she expect to lose her heart to a man she finds repulsive and without remorse. But the heart wants what it wants...and one can discover the darker aspects of themselves when placed in certain situations. “ - Jennifer
“ It’s a rough journey and it’s a dark story. There’s no fluff or gentleness. There’s just blood, sweat, and tears. You really need to have an open mind to understand every emotion you will feel. If you’re one of those people who only like reading fluffy HEAs, then this story is not for you. It’s gritty, toxic, violent, but among the violence and killings, love blooms. But it's betrayal and lies that will end those rare moments of happiness for Alzerro & Bree *sniff*. Indebted left me anxious, betrayed, angry, upset, hurt, lost, & empty. I am but a shell, waiting for book 2 after being utterly consumed by book 1 *sigh*. “ - Wendy

If every heart’s a package someone else has tied in knots, how did bondage unravel mine?
I’d sleep with the devil to nail the source of illegal poker machines pouring into my district. It’s personal between me and those one-armed bandits, but when my captain asked me to go undercover as a sexual submissive to catch our suspect, my gut said “Hell, no, even I can’t tell a lie that big.”
Enter Ray Casey, shibari master, who spent two weeks showing me the world of erotic bondage. I fell hard for Ray, but the outcome of our affair was preordained; duty above all.
When the unthinkable happened, where could I turn when I couldn’t trust my brothers in blue? My instincts led me back to Ray, but he wants me to submit to something harder than a little BDS&M….
~Zinnia J. Jackson, Det. 1st Grade, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division
I started this after reading one of my favorite books so I wasn’t really ready to read another book to be fair you could say I had a serious book hangover. After reading the first chapter I wanted to give up I just couldn’t find my mojo but I continued and I must admit the first couple chapters I didn’t really get into the book and no matter how many times I read Zin was black I still pictured her as a red head (think Julia Roberts in pretty woman but much curvier) and I pictured Ray as black (think postman from eastenders)
By the 3rd / 4th chapter I was hooked and wanted to send Hammond down almost as much as Zin. To be honest I would have liked more as I feel it was incomplete but obviously that’s to pave the way for another book.
This book was a lovely read I couldn’t put it down once I got past the beginning I really believed in Ray as a character and I wanted to shake Zin for her self doubt but all in all it was a good story And no spelling mistakes which is a big issue for me, and very well written.

I was gifted this book in return for an honest review and it was a great read.
***CONTENT WARNING*** New Adult Romance for ages 18+ due to sex scenes and adult situations.
BEAUTIFUL SERIES, BOOK FIVE – MAY BE READ ON ITS OWN OR AS A PART OF THE SERIES.
When Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn’t expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rock star in love with his ex
When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn’t expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn’t expecting to spend the night with one of Australia’s hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. She also wasn’t expecting to save his life.
And that’s just the beginning.
From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future – no matter what the personal cost.
I’m a sucker for a good easy feel good romance and a beautiful star is just that. I hadn’t heard of the author nor the books until I was gifted this. I must say when I get time I would like to catch up with books 1-4 however I didn’t know it was part of a series until the end so can be read as a stand alone novel.
The book starts two years ago in a club, Sandra and her friend Lisa running into two men from Lisa’s past but more confusion is the fact they don’t call her Lisa. One of the men is Jonathon Masters who by all accounts is a famous actor who has a bad rep with the ladies. There is an obvious spark between Jonathon and Sandra but she doesn’t date “famous” men after a bad experience when she was younger. Lisa disappears with Sandra’s help which gets her in the papers as Jonathon’s latest lady when in fact she is trying to start a relationship with the hot Brad, unfortunately there is no spark there. The rest of the story is how true love fights its way through the obstacles that life throws in its path for Sandra and Jonathon and sadly one of the obstacles is Sandra’s dad’s death.
Again I loved this story and finished it in a day as I couldn’t put it down. Do yourselves a favor ladies and get your one click finger ready.

Jennifer Locklear gave me this book in return for honest review and I can honestly say I adored it. I love the fact that husband and wife wrote this, I hope they had fun whilst writing.
So what's a publicist to do? Publicist Shaunna Noble is no stranger to the ego-filled dysfunction of Hollywood's elite, but is she ready for her two biggest clients to turn into her worst nightmare? Kyle Petersen and Michelle Cooper are Hollywood royalty, everyone's favorite celebrity couple, but while on location filming their new summer blockbuster, Kyle ambushes his wife with divorce papers and orders Shaunna to destroy Michelle in the media. Unwilling to comply, Shaunna spectacularly and publicly quits her job, humiliating Kyle in the process. David Quinn, a struggling actor cast alongside the A-listers, is caught in the crossfire. When pictures surface of David and Michelle out on the town, media and fans rush to crown them Hollywood's new hot couple. Kyle explodes, tensions boil over, and everyone's lives and careers are thrown into jeopardy. So what's a publicist to do? Especially when Shaunna finds herself falling in love with the sexy and talented David. Can she put out fires on the set while keeping the flames burning in the bedroom? Love, lies and passion. What happens when the naked truth is exposed?
The story starts with Michelle reflecting on her unhappy marriage after an unexpected afternoon rendezvous with her husband Kyle. Michelle comes across as lovely and genuine throughout the whole book and Kyle is just vile and rude the whole way through. Shaunna quickly became my favorite character and her romance with David grabbed me instantly. The book is well-written and fun to read. The main characters are Hollywood actors / film production / publicists so gives you an idea of cut throat Hollywood games. During the course of the book they are filming a movie based in space and this is where Kyle shows his true colours. Also Gus Shaunna’s dad plays a great role and he became my crush in this book.
The book has a nice mix of drama / humor /sex to make it fun to read. Its what I call a nice easy read makes you feel good to read it.

What if the enticing man who has just seized your every sense enlightens you to realms beyond our dimension? Can that spark of love withstand a war to protect mankind? Kairos: An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley is the spellbinding novel that reveals that the deepest love need not be confined to the trappings of one world.
The first in a series of adult paranormal romances, Kairos swirls in mankind, magic, and mythology as it chronicles the first blush of yearning between Sulwen Macgregor, a shy and sheltered college senior, and Logan Thatcher, a mesmerizing former playboy with arresting good looks, an offbeat sense of humor, and an ironclad moral code. When the two meet, Sulwen has no inkling that she soon will embark on an odyssey that not only exposes Logan as other than mortal, but uncovers astonishing aspects of her own being as well.
As Logan saves Sulwen from fast-approaching peril, the two must discover if their love is truly without bounds and strong enough to fend off adversaries far more craven than they ever could fathom. With wild imagination, otherworldly passion, and heart-pumping action, Kairos goes where no human being has dared, all in the name of love.
I was given this book to review from the author in return for an honest review. I adored the description and thought it would be my kind of book. I enjoyed the beginning that was quite good and promising. The book as a whole was so slow I found myself struggling to keep my concentration. The supernatural/ paranormal /fantasy didn’t really start until over 50% of the book and some explanations were over detailed some weren’t described at all making you wonder if you had missed something. Sulwen was a great character but instant love and rushing off to Scotland with a guy you just met who could be a serial killer was a bit of a put off to me, Logan just seemed unreal which I suppose was meant to be but just didn’t hit me as great. I have a crush on Duncan what can I say suave classy older guys just do it for me.
The book has oodles of promise and I think the writer will improve greatly the more she writes.
