Elysium by J.J. Harper

Elysium (Reunion, #3)

 

 

 

‘I haven’t met someone and fallen in love,I’ve gotten the only man I ever loved back after 10 damn long years,I’ve got my man back‘ (Nico)

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review,having read the previous two books ,I was interested in seeing how Ryan and Nico’s story would go and if they would get their HEA.

This picks up from where ‘Reunited’ finished,Ryan and Nico have returned to where Nico lived.Troy is as ever the ‘Diva’ and is happy for Nico to have ‘his man’ back in his life. There is drama in the form of Lyle (Nico’s ex-well one night stand really),which leads to slight misunderstanding/insecurities coming to light from Ryan’s perspective-which does get resolved fairly quickly-I did feel that throughout the story,Ryan and Nico were ‘at it like rabbits! this book does have a fair bit of very explicit sex scenes-and yes they were HOT,but for me,perhaps one too many,however,it didn’t put me off reading as the character’s are likeable and you do get the feeling that after all the time apart,its simply making up for those years without each other.

Now there is also the matter of a secret from Ryan’s past which does add to the storyline,and from about 75% onwards this comes to light and Ryan has to deal with the situation-there are other characters introduced which are from another series by this author(and as a result I am interested in reading their stories-yet more to add to my TBR list!)
I don’t want to give all that much more as regards to the past of Ryan,as if I did it would give way too much away.

I did enjoy the Epilogue,as it does end well for both Ryan and Nico,and the series as a whole is one that I would and will read again,and that is all down to the writing.

‘You are my heaven,Nico,my nirvana,my Elysium’(Ryan)

NEW BY J.S.SCOTT

 

Billionaire Undaunted – Book Nine,The Billionaire’s Obsession Series
Synopsis
My name is Ellie Winters, and I’m one of those unfortunate women you
hear about on the news—but you never think my fate will ever happen to
you. Not that I blame you for believing that. Honestly, I thought the
same thing, until I became a statistic, a missing person who was assumed
dead. Wrong place, wrong time.

Except…I’m not dead. Not yet. I was kidnapped, shackled, beaten,
and deprived of the basic necessities, and pretty much left to find a
slow, painful demise. I’m hanging on, but just barely. I’m not even
sure what I’m waiting for since there’s no hope for me, nobody waiting
for me. I had finally given up, resigned myself to my inevitable
death…when the one man who could make me want to live again finds me
more dead than alive. After so many months in captivity, I’m lost,
hopelessly damaged. Is it even possible for me to come out of the
darkness and into the light again?

Zane Colter challenges me to live again, laugh again, live my life
again. But I’m not sure if I’ll ever be the same woman I was before I
was held captive by a madman. Yet, he doesn’t give up, and I couldn’t
ignore the white-hot passion that sizzled between the two of us.

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I’ve always needed.

Tender–but stubborn.

Logical–but understanding.

Sweet–but hot, demanding and possessive.

As we fall into each other, both hungry for a passion we’ve never
known, I wonder if I can be what Zane needs when I’m struggling to find
myself again.

And when I’m finally healed, I’ll have a choice to make: Do I try
to hang onto him forever, or will letting go be my only option?…Disclaimer: This book is not suitable for children and young teens. 18+ only.

Je Suis a Toi by Pepper Winters (5*)

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

Q made me the happiest esclave in the world. He gave me his heart, his empire, his ruthless unforgiving love. And life finally left us in peace.

A man like my maître has special needs though, growing stronger as our lives intertwine. The only way to survive his monster is to agree to all his desires.

Including his latest wish.

I’m his.

And I won’t refuse

je suis a toi live

I kindly received an Arc in exchange for an honest review
*sighs*
Opening up this book was like visiting old friends. Pepper seamlessly picks up these characters as if she has never left them and maybe she hasn’t. Being my first dark read, they certainly have stayed with me and the Monsters in the Dark trilogy is one of my ‘go to’ series when I get some downtime of my own.
I loved Tess and her feistiness in this one and her utter honesty of what she needed from their relationship. Tess had a horrendous few years but at no time has she ever tried to justify her needs and desires or put it down to her past suffering. She is not a victim and she owns her sexuality.
I also loved Q. He was so grumpy at times but you can’t help but smile at his inability to say no to Tess and his futile attempts at a ‘vanilla’ relationship.
I personally think this novella (probably a full length to some but not Pepper 🙂 tied up the series perfectly and once again I am sorry to say goodbye to these two characters. Oh and did I mention it’s hot like super red hot chilly hot 😉 If you love your dark reads and don’t mind a little SM with your B&D then go one click ….

Rockette Rating – 5 stars
