ARC REVIEW ~ Invincible by Alana Albertson



What a difference a re-write made for this one!

The book has a much better flow. Both Annie and Patrick’s POV’s,
some great new sub plots and a mostly slower pace making big 
necessary changes. PHEW!
For me, it could still have been a little more intense 
and a little slower at times. 

The brothel scene at the beginning is a critical one; I’d have happily read another dozen pages on that alone. Taking that whole scene slowly and giving it a more all consuming intensity was (I felt) essential. This was the blowjob that was going to save her life, it would have been an incredibly desperate scene but I thought that it just missed the mark on that. 

Toward the end I think it could have been comfortably 
given some more pages too. 

Overall though, it’s a winner! 
Moving up from 3.5 to 4 stars.

Thanks very much Alana for giving me the opportunity to re-read.

From the beautiful cover to the incredible synopsis 
I was positive that this would be a winner! 
I'd have given anything for it to have been a 6 star read.
I've never known such potential in a story, 
it screamed 'movie'.

Sadly though, for me it was paced at such breakneck speed toward the end that it felt out of sorts. 
Why the sudden need to change everything 
that was said throughout the story? 

It could have been amazing. 
But from a strong start it unfortunately finished weak. 
I'm truly gutted.


Alana is rewriting Invincible!! 
 I want her wish her the best of luck 
and assure her that we're right here for the reread.

ARC REVIEW: The Seduction ~ Roxy Sloane

All women look the same on their knees 
with their lips wrapped around my cock.

You like to think you’re different, special somehow. 
But trust me, I’ll have you wet and begging for it before 
you can think of all those bullshit, 
good girl reasons why not.

I'm your darkest secret. Your dirtiest fantasy.

Who am I?

The Seducer

And I've never lost a case.

Until her. 
Keely Fawes. My mysterious new target.
Someone wants to destroy her
 and I’m their weapon of choice.
Her secrets could be my undoing. Her innocence will ruin me.

But I don’t care.

I’m going to show her how fucking good it feels to be bad. 
She’ll come screaming my name if it’s the last thing I do.

***Part 1 of a filthy, seductive new serial***

Oh. My. God! I'm blown away by how completely 
fucking dirty and delicious this first part was.
They haven't even made it to the bedroom yet!


Ladies, books like this ensure we're 
on our best game with our partners. 
Who wouldn't want their man to feel 
the way Vaughn does for Keely
 in this steamy as hell read?  
His POV was PURE filth!!

I gasp for air, reaching up to cling onto the edge of the bookcase. 
I should say something...

It wasn't just the phenomenal spanking scene, this whole book screams multiple... panty change!!

You came. Is that a problem?” 
She blinks, slowly opening her mouth again. 
I wait for a whine, but instead, 
her lips curl in a delighted grin. 
“I've never orgasmed with a man before. 
With someone else, I mean.” 

I yank my jeans back up and rinse my hands. 
“If you’re still standing, and able to string two words together, that wasn't an orgasm.” 

She frowns. “What was it then?” 

“A rehearsal.”

Wow, really??! 
Seriously, I can't wait to get into part 2

"Warning: this book is full of mind blowing sex, spanking, and dirty words. 
Proceed at your own risk -- spare panties required."
