Review: Empires and Kings by A.C. Bextor



Publication Date:  1/31/2017
Series: Mafia #1
Rating: 5 STARS!


BLURB:

I was known as the traitor's daughter.
When I was five years old, my father was tortured, branded with the letter 'Z', then beaten and left for dead. The grueling punishment for his crime was a reminder to all others who dared threaten the Russian's reign.

I was the young girl left behind. A living piece of the traitorous puzzle the Russian leader tried so diligently to ignore.

Until I grew up. No longer could he deny how much my existence had always been intertwined with his. And in order to survive the life I was thrown into, I was forced to learn my place inside of it.

Vlad Zalesky was a tyrant to the lost.
I hated him.

He was a terror of mass destruction.
I was afraid of him.

He was a tormentor of the weak.
I only wanted to hide from him.

But not far beneath the venomous man's outward indifference was something else.

Vlad Zalesky carried secrets of unrestrained burden. I wanted to know those secrets.

And because of the decisions I made, someone in our family had to pay.


This book. Just. WOW!

It's been nearly two weeks since I finished Empires and Kings and I am still speechless. Bextor has always had a talent of writing the dark and gritty side of the world with beautiful romance intertwined, but this book is by far her best yet.  I say yet because there's more to this story coming 

*I'm looking at you, A.C.*

Empires and Kings is a much farther fall into the underbelly of modern society, the mafia.  The group of families, men, women, and even children that we see portrayed in movies, but are in fact very much real.  Bextor dives in head first and weaves this spellbinding tale of love, loss, and temptation.  Vlad was menacing and scary to Kiara's blood stained innocence.  It's not your run of the mill romance, and I think that's why I liked it so much. There was nothing sweet except the revenge in this book.  The violence, the domination, and the fear was off the charts, but that only compounded my love more for this story.  

Reading it, I felt swept away into a dark world that eerily felt like I didn't belong in as I sped through the chapters.  There's just something about this story that I can't explain as it still gnaws at me weeks later.  I know one thing for sure. This book is amazing and should be a staple in any dark romance lovers TBR pile.

Cover Reveal: One Final Breath by LK Collins




Title: One Final Breath
Author: LK Collins | @authorlkcollins
Release Date: February 28th 2017
All Graphics Made by: Prezidential Visions 












 One life.
One choice.
One love.

Sometimes it’s all we get and one moment could change it all. 

I hate the number one—it haunts me; my every waking moment is a constant reminder of what I lost. 

One day, I met a guy and I fell in love. 
He asked me one question…I said yes. 

Our life was perfect…until one day everything changed. 

I watched him slowly slip and fade away. 

The one person I loved, my best friend, my partner, my everything, was slowly dying right in front of my eyes. 

The doctors said he had one year left; he only lasted one month. 

As I held on to his hand, he took one final breath and slipped from this world.

Leaving me; one woman, one broken heart, one child to show the world to…all alone. 

This is my story about the power of one ...







One Final Breath

I’m not sure what it is about him, but for some reason since we met, he’s consumed my thoughts. He takes the pain away—he makes me feel sane—he makes me feel like there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel I’ve been living in for so long.















From International Bestselling Author, LK Collins, comes One Final Breath an emotional read about losing the one you love and learning how to go on without them.

LK Collins is the naughty alter ego for the husband-and-wife duo behind multiple bestselling and international bestselling novels. This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories. While LK writes the books, Mr. Collins, the tattooed god himself, is the mastermind behind so much of the page-turning sexiness. 

If you are looking for a scorching read with chemistry so intense it jumps off the pages, then an LK novel is for you. From standalones to series, their stories will have you blushing and panting, ready to reread them the moment you’ve finished. The heroes are alpha, demanding, filthy-talking men that will do anything for their girl…or to get them.

Blurb

“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart."

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.
I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.

That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served on the beach. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.

Right to the heart.

Author Bio

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?



We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it. 

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
