As far back as I can remember, I pushed away those ugly demons looping their venom around my brain.

Trying to turn me into a man I never wanted to be.

“Do what we say or die.”

Words filled with poison, they slowly dripped in my veins, leaving me a mess of a man, and walking that thin line between right and wrong.

I never wanted to be a killer; now it’s a craving I need to survive.

The man I used to be never wanted to cause anyone an ounce of unbearable pain, because I know first-hand what it feels like.

That choking in your throat, barely able to breathe heartbreak of those who died, left behind.

The men I’m killing, they left me no choice but to walk a line chalked with retaliation.

To leave the woman I love behind.

I didn’t take a life like they claim to cause her pain. I sacrificed a lifetime with her to keep her alive.

But, after fourteen years of her living that lie, I’m crossing another line. One I was warned to never step over. 

“Stay away from her, or she dies.”

My Thoughts:

Nikolai “Nick” Popov shows what someone has to live with and live by in order to survive. Blaire Warren has a kind heart – she tries to help those that need it the most. Our author is very good at keeping everything close to her chest. She takes her time about letting the characters reveal things that helps you understand why she’s good at keeping you on the edge of your seat.

Some scenes are hard to read but it’s understandable as Nick let’s us know about his life. That life affected others and we get to see that as well. What’s good about this series is that secondary characters in this story have books of their own. In no way do you need to read the first two books in the Vindicator series in order to understand what’s going on here - that’s a good thing since I’m two books behind.

Some scenes were hard to read but it’s understandable as Nick let’s us into his world. We see the effect it had on others as the story unfolds. Being so emotional it’s not hard to picture what our main characters had to endure – it’s something that you could picture as being based on reality. In order to get a sense of what Nick had to become he’s very graphic in telling us what he has to do to make his world a better place. – a little warning for the squeamish. There’s also a sadness that follows him throughout.

You could consider this a second chance romance but it’s the action and suspense that takes center stage here. Seeing Blair and Nick find their way back to each other was nice but knowing that good will overtake evil was what had me turning the page all the way to an ending that had mixed emotions.

Winter Nobleman is complicated. To say the least.

It was supposed to be simple. Go to Paris, find a client’s daughter, and close a multi-million-dollar deal. Easy. Then I meet her. Stormy blue eyes, quick wit, and the secrets she keeps on the tip of her tongue make me forget my mission for a moment, or six, and why I’m in Paris in the first place—to bring her home.

Distracted by her beauty, I fail to notice the others lurking with missions of their own.

Bennett Everest is the twist I never saw coming. Talk about perfect timing.

He steals my breath the first time I see him and breathes hope back into my heart. He’s a giant in my eyes, a king among men with patience and love to share in spades. Six foot three. Whiskey-colored eyes. Solid gold on the inside.

Despite the dirty deeds of my past, he sees the person I am meant to be and not the person I have become.

If the lies don’t kill us, will the truth set us free?

My Thoughts:

Bennett Everest has a job to do. But working with family can be challenging at times. Winter Nobleman just wants a little recognition from someone important to her. It’s too bad that they seem to be blind when it comes to her.

This book doesn’t say it is part of a series but as you get to know Bennett’s brothers you’ll wonder what their story could be about. If you read to the end of this book, the author will give you the titles you will need. Good for me, I’ve already read Hutton’s story. Bad for me is that I still need to read Ethan’s. A good issue for me is whether I want to read or listen to it – or maybe even both. Make no mistake; you don’t have to read the brother’s books first, as with the other books, this can be considered a standalone.

Even though the Everest brothers seem central to what’s going on, Winter doesn’t let you forget that she’s also a part of what’s going on. She takes us to Paris and had me wanting to sit in an outdoor café sipping an espresso while rereading her story. Good news for me is that I don’t have to get in an airplane to travel to a café when not too far from me is a place called, oddly enough, Paris Café – I just hope they don’t have a limit as far as how long I can stay. It’s hard to put the book down once I pick it up.

One thing I was certain of, almost from the beginning, is that Bennett was going to be good for Winter. He is a man who is confident but she throws him off just a little bit. I loved their walks and when all they did was talk to each other – loved their easygoing banter. The mystery and suspense was all the incentive I needed to keep turning the page. And a romantic ending left me smiling and looking forward to her next book.

What people are saying:

“Absolutely Best Romantic Suspense of 2019!” - Lulu, FB/GR 

“Bennett is so so sexy and romantic. He’s THE best book boyfriend.” -Barbara, Goodreads

“With stellar writing and the kind of plot that you instantly connect with, Force of Nature was everything I love in a story and more.” -LitlJen, Goodreads

Give Me Books Presents: The Panty Melter by Lili Valente; #ReleaseBoost, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #TBR, #Giveaway

Title: The Panty Melter
Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Enemies-to-Lovers
Release Date: March 26, 2019


I don’t date alpha males.
Especially not alpha males with egos the size of Jupiter, who also happen to be my boss’s big brother.

Deacon Hunter is domineering. Condescending. Infuriating.

And yet I can’t seem to keep my panties on for five minutes when we’re alone together.

He keeps melting them right off. With that sexy voice, those confident hands, the way he brings my body wildly to life, he’s proved my libido hasn’t gone into permanent, post-divorce hibernation after all.

Surely there’s no harm in being enemies with benefits… Right?


When Violet Boden asks me to take her Divorce Virginity, the only thing I can think is—come again?

No, seriously, come again.

And again and again, until both of us are so satisfied we can’t remember the people who did us wrong.

Best if we keep conversation to a minimum, though, considering I drive her crazy. She drives me crazy sometimes, too. But she’s also sweet, loyal, fearless, and so
much fun she’s making it damn hard not to fall for her.

But how to convince a woman who’s put me in the emotional no-fly zone that I deserve a place in her heart?

It’s my job to protect her, my pleasure to possess her.
This little brat needs saving.
What she’ll get is a firm hand and a thick dose of discipline.
What she’ll get is a daddy.

There are three simple rules to the job: protect, keep safe, keep professional. The Marines and then life as a street cop trained me for the first two.

She’s going to make me break the third.

Nina’s the sweet temptation I never saw coming. Innocent, untouched…and in a lot of trouble with some very, very bad men after witnessing a crime she wasn’t supposed to see. Now, they want to hurt her. They want to take what’s mine.

…Like hell is that happening.

Protecting her is my job, but once I get my hands on those sweet, soft, college girl curves, I know I’ll break every rule to keep her. Once I taste those lips as she begs me for more, and once I claim that innocence, there’ll be no going back.

They want her?
They’ll have to go through me.

Nina’s going to be my everything and my undoing. She’ll be my sweet ruin.

She’ll be mine.

And I’ll destroy anyone who tries to take her from me.

This is a standalone story. The books in Blackthorn Mountain Men series can be read in any order.

Please note: this book was previously published as part of the USA Today bestselling “Daddy’s Demands” anthology. This newer version is approximately 40% longer, with additional scenes and a brand new epilogue for the enjoyment of both new and previous readers. I hope you enjoy!
