Dear Heart, You Screwed Me, by Ashlee Rose | Book Review

Hello and welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:

Dear Heart, You Screwed Me, by Ashlee Rose.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Death of a loved one (partner), mention of Car Accident resulting in death, Grief, Sex Scenes, (Accidental) Pregnancy.

Dear Heart,

I can’t believe I am even writing this.
I wanted a fresh start, to follow a new dream that I had to find after I lost Elijah.

Moving to New York was the best thing for me.
I had it all planned out.
New Friends, New Job and a New Adventure.

And a new adventure I had.

My best friend’s dad.
It was supposed to be a taboo fling… but it was so much more.

We were tied together by more than a mutual connection.
It ran deeper than blood.

The thought of starting over again petrified me, but here I am, ready for a new beginning and the new adventure I craved, it just wasn’t the one I had planned.

Dear Heart, you screwed me.

Dear Heart, You Screwed Me is such an emotionally charged story.

The Tycoon, by Molly O’Keefe | Book Review

Welcome to Adele Is Reading!
Today on the blog I have my book review of:

The Tycoon, by Molly O’Keefe.

The Tycoon is the first book in the King Family series.
The King Family series is a companion series.

Triggers / Content Warnings: Sex scenes, Emotionally Abusive Father, Abusive Step-Mother (unspecified), mentions of Theft, mentions of Parents Death, Death of a Parent.

C12FE185-DCE2-4056-9D6F-40C17C5FA330The cruel and beautiful man who ruined my life has everything he wants—everything except me.

Five years ago, Clayton Rorick loved me. Or so I thought. Turned out he only wanted to get his hands on my daddy’s company. Heartbroken, I ran away with nothing but the clothes on my back. Like a twisted Cinderella. When my father dies, leaving my sisters in a desperate situation, it’s up to me to help them.

I’ll have to beg the man who broke my heart to save us.

But Clayton hasn’t forgotten me and what he wants in exchange for his help is…my body, my heart and my soul.

Being as honest as I can possibly be, I found The Tycoon was…an alright story. The Tycoon definitely has ups and downs. One thing that the story as a whole, is, that it’s an emotional rollercoaster.

Feral, by Skye Cavanagh | Book Review

Hello, and welcome back to Adele Is Reading!
Today I have my book review of:

Feral, by Skye Cavanagh.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Torture, Torture mention, Stabbing, Blood, Poisoning, Fighting, Fighting to the death, Beheading, Beheading mention, mentions of Child Abuse, (rough/’normal’) sex scenes, detailed sex scenes.

7C07A322-E488-49AA-92AA-9662108A408CThey lied to me. All of them.

I was raised to believe that I was a warrior witch, someone who made the world a little safer. On my sixteenth birthday, I found out that I’m nothing more than a monster myself – a fae abomination created to protect the queen of the Fallen.

For eight long years I ran from the fae who’d have me take up my place at the queen’s side. Then I found him, my light in the darkness. Someone I could trust. Sean was my chance at a normal life. At freedom.

He was the worst of them. He gave me everything I thought I wanted. I gave him my heart, and in turn he sold me to the queen.

The court is a cold and cruel place. There is no kindness for a creature like me. They tried to break me, to make me into one of them. I endured far more darkness and punishment than I’d ever have thought possible. I was lost, broken.

One day they threw me to the wolves. Little did they know that those beautiful creatures were my fated life bonds. Three incredible predators who would take on the world to keep me safe. To see me smile.

The court wanted me to be a monster, a creature forged of blood and shadow. Now, with my life bonds at my side, I will show them just how monstrous I really am.

Fallen is a darkish paranormal reverse harem romance not suitable for sensitive readers. It features a strong heroine, and three devoted men who’d take on the world for their lifebond.

This book was previously called Fallen. The content is exactly the same. Only the cover and title changed.

From GoodReads [x]:


First opening the book and diving into Feral, I had high hopes for the story. Not gonna lie.
