WARNING: Although my reviews may not contain adult content, these books are do. Book reviews also contain spoilers, read at your discretion.
I basically live on Kindle during breaks from longer books. Longer books especially fantasy series can really take a toll on you, the mental and emotional investment you put into it until the end. So I like to read shorter books at intervals, easy reads and less complicated. Most of these books fall under the romance/erotica category…don’t judge me. I read everything 🙂
Dark Desires. (Historical Romance) Darcie Finch is a betrayed and unfortunate girl who gets sent to Dr. Damien Cole for help by her prostitute sister. She get’s hired as a maid but eventually is hired for her artistic skills in which she helps Dr. Cole dissect dead bodies. Darcie grows suspicious that Dr. Cole is obtaining the dead bodies illegally yet she desires him to no end, and he her.
Dark Prince. (Historical Romance) Aidan Warrick, a pirate and smuggler goes to collect his due from Jane Heatherington’s father. He winds up taking Jane, a cripple to work for him for free for seven years to pay off her father’s debt. It’s a story of hate and revenge and passion. Jane learns that her father is not the man she always thought he was as he betrays his own daughter. She also learns that he may have some history with Aidan Warrick, and that Aidan Warrick may not be the dark and dangerous man she initially thought him to be.
Priest: A Love Story by Sierra Simone. A very enthralling story about forbidden love. The writing was phenomenal and I loved how it was told from only the Priest’s point of view. Father Bell is a twenty-nine year old priest, taken his vow of celibacy after a tragedy in his family. One day Poppy enters his confessional and one thing led to another. I’m sure you get the idea but this one wasn’t cringe worthy.
After the Storm by Claudy Conn. A well written easy read. Some friendship, some lust, some suspense, some betrayal. The Earl of Danfield proposes a marriage of convenience to Jenny, who accepts as she herself can see it working out for her as well. A little bit of chaos here and there with the people that surround them but the book wraps up well and I loved how the story wasn’t rushed. Both characters had a gradual way of falling in love.
Collison (Portland Street King 1) by Evie Harper. I’ve read this this last September so I barely remember the details but I’m sure it’s a good one. Fourteen year old Slater escapes his abusive foster home with his foster siblings and they survive on the streets. Years later, he runs into Piper a social worker whom he is both intrigued and disgusted by because she works for a system he no longer believes in. The brothers are in a turf war/gang thing but it get wrapped up neatly and prepares for the second installment of the series which I have not read.
I have read a vast number of these short steam stories but I can’t review all in one sitting, unfortunately.
