Books That Didn't Make the Cut Pt.27

June 25, 2024

Hello hello! I'm back with some more books that didn't really work for me, but might be winners for you.

Let me know if you've read any of these or plan to. I'd love to know your thoughts :)

Alpha's Moon by Renee Rose & Lee Savino

dual POV, Paranormal Romance

My alpha ordered me to keep away from humans.

My wolf is highly unstable. Nearly feral. I can’t be trusted around civilians.

Certainly not with the lovely kindergarten teacher whose scent drives me wild.

But she needs a fake boyfriend for a weekend wedding trip. A big guy to intimidate her ex.

How can I refuse?

I won’t be directly disobeying an order, because it won’t be a real date.

It will be a nice, clean mission. We’ll have separate rooms.

I’ll keep my wolf on a tight leash.

And no matter how much I want to, I will not mark and claim the sweet human as mine…

My Rating -

First Chapter: everything I'm looking for. I like the idea of shifters on a special forces team, getting rid of bad guys and rescuing the good ones.

Second Chapter: I don't care. Why oh why oh why did Sadie ruin it for me?

The End

The Beast of Moscow by Bethany-Kris

dual POV, contemporary mafia romance

Tucked away deep in the hills of Dubna lives a man hiding from a past that’s as grisly as the scar on his face. Reclusive. Paranoid. Violent. His trek to the top has been a bloody game—with a deadly end for anyone who loses.

And it’s not over yet.

Vera Avdonin stumbled into the life of Vaslav Pashkov entirely by accident, and it should have stopped there, too. Just a broken ballerina who helped a beautifully tortured stranger.

But she’ll soon learn that like the mafiya he controls, once he brings you in, there is no way out.

They don’t call him The Beast of Moscow for nothing.

My Rating -

I can't believe I'm saying this because BK is one of my absolute favorite authors, but...

This book just wasn't working for me. I couldn't get into it. Which sucks because about 99% of her books get 5 stars from me so this is obviously not normal.

Breaks my heart :(

Dark Side of the Cloth by Brooklyn Cross

dual POV, Contemporary vigilante romance

He didn't believe in flowers, but he would hunt down everyone that ever hurt her.

Groomed from birth to take over the Cartel, darkness was all Dean knew. Except he had no interest in running a gang, and even less in being the next El Chapo like his abusive father.

So, he ran.

That’s when the Army found him. He was highly sought after for his unique skill set, and quickly became a valued member. Finally, he found a place where he belonged. Until The Righteous came knocking with an opportunity for a new life. So, he put on the priest collar and settled into the small town, happy with his new beginning.

Then he saw Yasmine Jacobs.

Wracked with survivors guilt, Yasmine struggled to put that dreadful night behind her. She tried to move on and take over the family business. She thought her life was fine the way it was. That is, until the new priest, Dean O’Sullivan came into town. Confession was supposed to cleanse her soul, not damn her for the thoughts running through her mind.

How long would she be able to deny her basic primal instincts, when circumstance kept pushing them together?

But who exactly was the forbidden fruit?

My Rating -

What's more delicious than a priest who isn't really a priest and looking scrumptious while doing it? Oh and he kills bad guys in his own thrilling ways.

Too bad this book just wasn't doing it for me :(

Once again, the heroine made me quit.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
