A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. 

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror. 

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

Master Undone by Lisa Renee Jones

Master Undone by Lisa Renee Jones


 The Master Undone is a part of the Inside Out trilogy, and is told from his POV. ***

I told him goodbye, and I will not call him. I know if I do, it will be my undoing, and I'll once again be caught up in his spell. I will once again be...lost. 

In her private journals, Rebecca laid bare her soul, revealing her obsession for the one man whose erotic demands captivated her imagination--and enslaved her forever. Now, with Rebecca no longer in his life he is lost, questioning everything he thought he knew about himself and about control he holds in such high regard. One women will reach out to heal him and then turn away, leaving him haunted. She is nothing he thought he wanted and somehow everything he needs. He tells himself to forget her but he cannot escape his desire for her. He has to have more...


Master Undone is a novella in the Inside Out Series and should be read between Being Me and Revealing Us to prevent any spoilers.

The story picks up right after the end of Being Me.  Mark has been forced to face the consequences of his actions and accept responsibility for the events that have spiraled out of control.  Was it his control what broke Ava and Rebecca?

While trying to sort out recent events Mark received a call that requires his immediate attention in New York.  But what he finds waiting for him causes more confusion and stirs unfamiliar feelings.  Crystal is the new Sales Manager at Riptide and is just as much a control freak as Mark.  He has sworn off women for the time being but could this woman be what causes the Master to become Undone?

This was a quick read told from Mark’s POV, but no less captivating. I loved getting a bit more inside of Mark’s head.  I saw a different side to him that made feel for him.  I am looking forward to more back story on how he found his way to becoming a Master and the formation of his establishment. With the introduction of Crystal, I am intrigued to see if she will be a character that will stick around. For me, whether a short novella or a full length novel, Lisa Renee Jones does not disappoint.

Beautiful Downfall by Scarlett Jade

Review of Beautiful Downfall by Scarlett Jade


Camille Taylor's life fell apart after the tragic accident that haunts her every waking moment. She became a recluse, only looking forward to each day with the hope of having those dreams... A handsome man with dark hair and wicked eyes visits her at night, keeping her company as she struggles to get past the sudden death of her beloved parents. There is something undeniable about him. She is drawn to the mysterious man like a moth to a flame. This couldn't be insanity, but it can't be real, either...

Casey Philips has his own damaged past that put him in a delicate situation. He is an angel working for redemption, and has been watching over Camille since that horrible day where her mother and father were stolen away. It's all God's plan, they are fine and well now, but the task of helping this lovely human get past her grief to move on in her life is quickly taking a wrong turn. She's stunning and plays the key role in his every thought. Angels aren't suppose to fall in love with their clients. If he continues he could lose everything and fall from God's good graces. But if he stops he will lose the most important person in his life.

With every thing on the line, Casey and Camille set out on a life-altering adventure to discover if love really can overcome anything.


I can honestly tell you that I chose to read this book for the cover.   Well wasn't I surprised to find that this book was a story about an Angel...see I don't usually read books with Angels so I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out for me.  I must tell you I was pleasantly surprised. 

Camille has not dealt with the grief of losing her parents very well and unbenounced to 
her she has been having sexual fantasies involving her grief angel Casey Philipps.   Casey's mission is to help Camille heal so that she can move on with her life but he is torn between his feelings for her and healing her.  He knows that he is overstepping all boundaries when it comes to Cami but he cannot help himself.  The pull between the characters was compelling.  The depth of their love for one another and their sacrifices they made for one another were selfless.  I truly felt for the characters as they chose to make decisions that hurt themselves but set the other free.  

Casey while being an angel must right some wrongs in his own past before being able move on to the next phase of his being.  Forgiveness.....Having experienced abuse, drugs 
and violence while living Casey is unsure if he can  grant the one thing he must.  I liked 
the authors ability to blend the characters between their mortal and spiritual beings. I 
mean who knows there may just be some angels roaming among us. 

As I stated earlier this in not my usual genre of book but I did not find the story to be too religious, which was a plus for me as many people have their own beliefs.  The story for me was all about second chances.

              "Even if it hurts a little, isn’t that what love is? Hurting someone but apologizing
                       profusely in the most beautiful of ways?”  ~


A work in progress...just trying to work out the kinks everyone.  Probably over thinking it but I just want it to be the best that it can be...hang in there.
