Lazy Review: Sex, Lies & Nikolai by R.J. Lewis

Title: Sex, Lies & Nikolai
Author: R.J. Lewis
Genre: Mafia Romance/ Dark Romance
Rating: 5 Lazy Books


Poverty is a bitch, and life isn’t a fairy tale.
College was never in my cards.
Jobs will never come easy to find.
There is no Prince Charming itching to rescue me.

I’m completely alone, destitute and destined to struggle until the end of my days.
Destined to be sucked into a world of debt because as much as I’m pushing away the only option that sits in front of me, it’s truly the only one I have:

Nikolai is my only hope.

Problem is, he's a dangerous Russian with a questionable past, and I find out soon enough just how far I must go to **earn** his help.

{ARC REVIEW} Rogue Blood (The Untouchables Book 4) by T.A. Grey

Title: Rogue Blood (The Untouchables Book 4)
Author: T.A. Grey
Genre: Vampire Romance/ Paranormal Romance
Rating: 4.5 Lazy Books


Known for little more than her beauty, socialite heiress Julianna Greenwich harbors secrets of her own. Not only is she a champion swordsman, but she's harbored a longing for the sophisticated, charming Blackmoore brother Vasilius for over twenty-four years.

When her father informs her that she is to mate with Vasilius in a fortnight, her first thought is not of happiness, but dread. The problem is that Vasilius, while once kind to her as a worldly man might be to a child, has treated her with nothing but disdain since the accident that left him scarred on his face.

How can she possibly get this man to love her, when he wants nothing to do with her?
Vasilius Blackmoore used to turn the heads of every woman in the room. When the inclination struck, he'd take one (or more) of these women to his bed and leave them thinking about him for years to come. However, all that changed when an old flame scarred his face forever. Now, women can hardly stand the sight of him. And one of those women is stunning beauty, Julianna Greenwich, the woman he's being forced to mate with.

Unbeknownst to Julianna, Vasilius once heard just what exactly she thought of his new face. And he’d hated her ever since.

But what better way to find retribution than to seduce Julianna and leave her wanting for more? A series of misunderstandings, secrets and one deadly stalker whose madness leads to dead bodies, breaks down the barriers between them. Vasilius begins to think that a family with Julianna might not be so bad, if he can move on from the pain of the past and keep her safe.

Lazy Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Title: Kicked
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: New Adult/College Romance
Rating: 4 Lazy Books


Trent Carrington.
Trent Mr. Perfect-Has-Everyone-Fooled Carrington.

He’s the star quarterback, university scholar, and happens to be the sexiest man I’ve ever seen. He shines at any angle, and especially under the Saturday night stadium lights where I watch him from the sidelines. But I know the real him, the one who broke my heart and pretended I didn’t exist for the past two years.

I’m the third-string kicker, the only woman on the team and nothing better than a mascot. Until I’m not. Until I get my chance to earn a full scholarship and join the team as first-string.

The only way I'll make the cut is to accept help from the one man I swore never to trust again. The problem is, with each stolen glance and lingering touch, I begin to realize that trusting Trent isn’t the problem. It’s that I can’t trust myself when I’m around him.

Blood. Sex. Revenge.
Being king comes at a brutal price.

Drug lord Javier Bernal has sliced and diced his way to the top of the Mexican drug trade, presiding over the country's largest cartel. But his rise to power comes at a brutal price: the death of his sister, Alana. Devastated and wracked with guilt, he turns away from his new wife, Luisa, forcing their marriage into a steady decline. But it isn't until she's pushed into the waiting arms of Esteban Mendoza, his right-hand man, that Javier realizes everything he's lost.

And it isn't until he learns the truth about Alana, that he realizes everything there is to gain.
Blood will spill.
Cities will burn.
Heads will roll.

Because Javier will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants.
And what he wants is raw, ruthless revenge.

Nothing is more dangerous than a man with nothing left to lose.
