Wow! I loved this unrelentingly dark read. 
The story continues for Rafe (yum!) & Alex, 
their passion sizzles and the story is paced 
at a fast, intense speed from the first chapter on.

I was kind of blown away by it! 
It's definitely not for the fainthearted!!

I'm not going to lie, as fantastic as this story is, 
it is hard going in parts because there's 
a lot going on and mixed in with this terrific thrilling 
(but sometimes tragic and awful) story
 is an incredibly passionate (but dark!) love story 
that has my full attention

 I love the way that Gemma writes a story and pulls me straight back into it with each new book in the series - 
it's as if I read the previous one only days before. 

And OMG what an ending!! 

I can feel a really big finish coming in vagrant! Sqeeeeeeeeeee!

His Gift~His Ransom (A Dark Billionaire Romance series 1-6) by Aubrey Dark

“I’m going to take you to the edge of darkness,
my Lacey. My little artist.
You’ll see the colors I can paint with my touch.”

First off, in my honest opinion 
(coming from someone that reads a lot of dark romance!) 
this isn't a dark read at all!

But it is one of those that's two sides of the same coin...
On one side we've got Lacey, the curvy tomboy street artist LACE, who's uncomfortable in anything that isn't street gear! She's struggling to make ends meet and falling for a billionaire was never on the cards for her! 
Besides (like the majority of us) she doesn't believe for a moment that he could possibly love her back anyway. 

And on the other, Jake. 
A lonely billionaire who doesn't believe in love 
because he's lived almost his entire life without it.

Unbeknownst to Lacey, Jake's also KAGE 
a notorious and famously anonymous street artist.

Throughout this serial read I felt a lot of empathy for Lacey, she's somewhat gripped by her jealousy and concern that she's setting herself up for a fall. The social circle that Jake's immersed in are nothing less than the perfect, elegant, wealthy people that you'd expect him to have and he's really no better than that - she sees him as perfect too. 

Being a girl that helps her friend out (not so simple... there's a dress involved! 'Grrr') by delivering a cake from her bakery to his party the last thing she expects is that he will think that she's his 'gift' (read: high class ~BDSM and whatever else one desires~ hooker!) for the week from his good friend! 

And so begins a intriguing, somewhat gripping story that I couldn't put down until all 6 were read! There's a decent back story to the series, secrets are unfolded - it becomes clear that all is not how it seemed - I liked that, because ultimately they were falling for each other!

There's no major cliffy's, it's continues smoothly and gets better each time. 
I admit, I did spend the best part of the series right along with Lacey thinking is this real or is he stringing her along?

If it's too good to be true and all that...

I won't give the story away, it's nicely written, simple, mostly just the two main characters which I think helps it along... 
There's some lovely hot and dirty bits!
(she is of course a virgin for a chapter or two!)

There are moments where my heart broke for Lacey, especially when it felt like the classic 
'being in a room full of people but feeling completely alone' 
It was very real.

Loved that this story does (of course!) have a HEA! 
And it's a beauty! 
It completely settles all of Lacey's concerns...

I'll look forward to more from this author!

ARC REVIEW: ~~ EDEN #3 ~~ by Georgia Le Carre

I rarely do this (and it's for the entire series) 

All the stars for story and all the hearts for heat 
that I can give - because to me, it's 


I've been such a fool. Such a fool. He saw me coming and tied me up in knots. And I let him. After Vegas, 
my heart and mind have been thrown into complete disarray. Is it really possible that what we had— all that blazing, unquenchable passion—was just an illusion?
I know I've lost his trust, but somehow I must find a way to repair the damage I have caused and find my 
way back to his heart.
I have to make it right… whatever it takes.


She is my wife now, but I know she's not mine. 
Not really. Not properly. Not the way I want. You see, 
I want it all. Every last bit of her: heart, mind, body and soul. And I'm prepared to move heaven and earth to make that happen. This is my mission and my promise. Watch me make her mine or die trying...

From the moment I saw these covers and read the blurbs I knew this series was going to be right up my smut filled street! What I didn't expect was that, what appeared on the surface to be a fairly simple ride would turn out to be a complex roller coaster of brilliance...

...It was absolutely outstanding!

‘What do I love more than my wife? 
 -- Jake Eden

You take your aim. You fire. 
And shoot me down. 
Fuck you, Fate. 
-- Lily Strom

I'm really not going to tell you anything about this final part of the story! If you're reading this then you'll be joining me for the journey soon. Or, LOL you've just gotten off the same dirty beautiful roller coaster!!

(choose gif to suit needs)


What we get from Georgia Le Carre (and what erotica badly needs more of) is an author that's 
also a great thinker. 
Her world knowledge (often in minute detail) is astounding. Fuck me! 
Georgia could give Naomi Klein a run for her money!!

Don't get me wrong, I'm often first in line to read baseline fluff erotica and I enjoy it as much as the next smutster, but this author raises the bar so high that it's becoming more and more difficult to find words to express just how much awe I'm actually in!!

I feel somewhat out of my depth her writing is so good.
I hardly read more than a couple of pages and I'm flawed by something she's written, a spot on observation, her description of something from the very simple to some huge conspiracy theory, I honestly stop and think 'Good God, that's exactly right! Why didn't I think or know that'

Everything she writes is new and fresh, there's never a scene where I think I've read similar but I swear even if Georgia did that, she'd do it better. 

Her writing is flawless.
I mean she's seriously got it all going on...!

I'm looking forward with completely baited breath
to her next series -
... like the Georgia Le 'Crack' addict that I am!!


Click the covers for my reviews of the first two books...


Thanks Georgia - you're the best!!!
And that fantastic joke at the end fucking killed me! : )
