Speak Easy (Speak Easy, #1) by Melanie Harlow

Speak Easy (Speak Easy, #1)Speak Easy by Melanie Harlow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Tiny wants more out of life, she works for her father bootlegging whiskey from Canada, and has to take care of her younger sisters. Something she's been doing ever since her mother passed away. She wants more, she wants to be a nurse and is saving up all her money for school. She's strong willed and isn't afraid to butt heads. She's the kind of leading lady that I enjoy.

Enzo is sexy as they come and just as dangerous. He's a gangster and the son of a powerful mob boss. The same gang that is messing with Tiny's father. She knows that she shouldn't feel the attraction to him but sometimes you want what you can't have or what you know you shouldn't have.

Joey has been a friend of the O'Mara family since childhood, he's grown up a lot since Tiny had seen him last and never did she think she would catch herself thinking about him in ways that she has. He wants the best life has to offer and he's not afraid to go after what he wants.

Speak Easy is set during prohibition era, it's labeled as "New Adult Historical fiction". It is a sexy read, thrilling and suspenseful with a "love" story tossed into the mix. I guess you could call it a potential love triangle. We have gangsters,kidnapping, murder, steamy love/hate relationships, backstabbing, cheating and lies.

This book was fantastic. The writing was suburb, the story line and characters were both equally amazing and interesting. Can't wait to read the next book, which the author,Melanie Harlow has so graciously provided for me.

Arc:Three Broken Promises (Drew + Fable, #3) by Monica Murphy

Three Broken Promises (Drew + Fable, #3)Three Broken Promises by Monica  Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Arc copy given for review!

Book 3 of the Drew + Fable series, but unlike the previous 2 this book focus is on Fables best friend and co-worker Jen and their boss Colin. But have no fear Fable and Drew are still around.

Jen has been in love with Colin for as long as she can remember. He's been there for her looking out for her and protecting her. She's fallen on some pretty hard times in the past and it's been him who's picked her back up, rescued her. Moved her into his home, given her a job at his restaurant. But even still there are things that he doesn't know about, things that she doesn't want him or anyone to know about. So that's why she needs to go. She needs to walk away and not look back because her past is catching up and she's not ready to face it, she doesn't want to ever face it. But can she walk away from Colin and her feelings for him? Can she walk away without him ever knowing those feelings?

Colin needs Jen in his life, more then she even realizes. To her she's just an obligation, because he was best friends with her brother Danny, but Danny has been dead for a few years now. He doesn't just look out for her because of him and her family, he does it because she he's in love with her. She's the one thing he wants so badly but doesn't try to have because he's to afraid. He doesn't want to let her down more then he thinks he has already. He doesn't want to let her down like he feels he did Danny and her parents. And now she's leaving, can he just let her walk away and out of his life with out him ever confessing how he really feels?

I enjoyed these two, the chemistry between the them is obvious. The love story is frustrating but that's just because you want to shake them and tell them to speak up and tell the other the truth about so many things. Frustrating but great.

Another smash hit from Monica Murphy. I can not wait to read the next book. And well anything else by this wonderful lady!!

Expected publication: December 31st 2013

Hunter by Jax, Jacquelyn Frank

HunterHunter by Jax
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*ARC provided by Kensington Books via NetGalley for an honest review*

Hunter has came back to his coven after being away for 10 years. And stepping back into his role of the sentinel of Willow coven was a lot easier then he thought would be. He never thought he would be back, never thought he's be given the call to come back but there's a dark coven trying to get in a destroy his, a coven that is lead by someone Hunter is way to familiar with and after certain events things get more then personal.

Tatyana is the baby of the family, a family of 13 her closest sibling is her brother a witch who at the time she knows nothing of this. This world of witches and magic comes crashing to her the night her car breaks down and she has to walk in the freezing cold. Little did she know at the time that her whole life as she knew it was going to change.

This book was alright, I was kind of hoping for more, the chemistry was good between the characters but they kind of annoyed me at the same time. But having saying that if this book turns into a series, I would be interested in checking out the next book.
