FB Banner
 
Title: The Uprising
Series: GRIT (Sector 1): Book 2
Genre: Dark Romance
 
~Synopsis~
I thought he was mine.
I LIVED WITH TOO MANY DEMONS.
He belonged to the underground.
AND THE UNDERGROUND WERE COMING FOR HER.
I wanted to know every secret.
I THOUGHT I KNEW EVERY SECRET.
I thought we were safe.
WE WOULD NEVER BE SAFE.
I thought we had won the fight.
BUT THE WAR WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN...
 
Trixie Ashford-Blackwood is now a part of a world she had no idea existed a mere few months ago. Married to a vigilante, heir to the throne of the organisation governing London, and chasing her own tail as she tries to uncover more clues about her purpose within GRIT, Trixie is battling against time as much as she is her husband. She has no idea what lies ahead, no idea who the man is who lays with her at night, and no idea of the traitors hiding in plain sight, waiting to spill her priceless blood. Elias Blackwood continues to fight his urges. He controls his desires, keeps the beast contained and refuses to acknowledge the risk that he may let loose on his wife. GRIT is slipping through his fingers, his control wavering with every minute that passes, while betrayal runs rife within the ranks of his army. He fights against time, and the people who are trying to bring the king of the empire to his knees; to not only keep them alive, but save a city that is drowning in evil and debauchery. But GRIT aren’t the only people working the Capital. Someone else is watching them. Analysing them. Preparing to strike. Someone else is preparing to step up and threaten their place on the throne. Someone is about to declare war on GRIT. An uprising is upon them. No one could have foreseen the betrayal. No one could have anticipated the devastation they would soon have to face.
*Warning: GRIT is a dark romance series. There are no rainbows and butterflies.

Review: Ready For Flynn Part 3 by KL Shandwick

 
Ready For Flynn, Part 3
Author: K L Shandwick
 
*~*~*The concluding part of this 5* series is now live!*~*~*

***Contemporary Rockstar Romance for readers over the age of 18***
 
~Blurb~
 
Life had never been easy for Rock God, Flynn Docherty. At a tender age, he'd locked down past personal tragedy, hurt, and pain to make his life bearable when most would have crumbled from what he witnessed. When Valerie Darsin entered into his life their instant attraction later grew into the kind of love that most of us can only dream about, after she'd survived her own traumatic event. 

In many ways, they were two hearts that beat as one sharing a love so profound and rare they were destined to be together. Can two damaged people with tragic pasts really be what each other needs? 

Unlucky in love, Valerie's trust issues are never far from the surface and with her past full of hurt, and a man like Flynn, can Valerie ever truly accept how he feels? Driven in business Valerie is a ball-breaker but less confident in affairs of the heart. Do values like trust, honesty, love, and commitment really survive in a world where a rock star has millions of followers who are willing to do literally anything for their idol?

~My Review~
 
Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ***This series must be read in order!***
 
I have been (im)patiently waiting for this book since I finished Part 2. Naturally when I was given the opportunity to read and ARC of Part 3 I said no... yeah right, like that's happen!!!
 
On to the book...
 
Ready For Flynn Part 3(RFFP3) launches us straight back into Flynn and Valerie's hectic lives and we pick up where book 2 left them.
 
Valerie and Flynn are clearly still deeply in love with each other even after everything that KL threw at them through books 1 & 2. And believe me RFFP3 is no different. I had trouble believing what KL did this time. For a while I had fallen out with KL big style; and yes I did message her and tell her too!!!
 
Valerie and Flynn have grown and developed so much with each obstacle they have faced and overcome. As with many people and couples they have their demons too, they have their own fears and insecurities which they have to deal with, which to me makes them feel more real, and easier to relate to. Both Flynn and Valerie are very emotional people and that emotion is palpable throughout the entire book and the entire series.
 
KL's writing style is amazing as always. She conveys the emotion that is needed at the right time. She changes POV effortlessly and seamlessly throughout and makes it perfectly clear who's POV we're seeing things from. The twists and turns that KL throws at these two are so unexpected and also thought provoking too.
 
Ready For Flynn Part 3 is an amazingly emotional book, an emotional rollercoaster ride of lust, love, fame and family from the very beginning. But for me RFFP3 is also bittersweet, why? Because I have loved this series and these characters to bits and now my time with Valerie, Flynn and their friends and family has come to end, and I'm going to miss reading about them.
 
Seriously...
 
Ready For Flynn Part 3 is an all consuming emotional 5* read. I just don't want this to be the end of Flynn and Valerie *Stares evil eyes at KL*
 
If you haven't entered into Flynn and Valerie's rollercoaster ride what are you waiting for...
 
 
 
~Excerpt~
 
As I sat on the bed with her in front of me, I turned her to face me, my eyes feasting on her body. I leaned forward and pulling her closer I sucked a pebbled nipple into my mouth through the thin lace of her bra. My hungry mouth trailed down and kissed from her abdomen to her mound.
 
Appreciating the garters, I lifted them between my fingers at each thigh and stretched them before letting go. Valerie’s breath hitched in her throat with the sudden sharp slap as they snapped back against her skin and my dick was instantly solid, “Sexy girl,” I groaned, as she bit her bottom lip between her teeth.
 
One by one, I unhooked each suspender and slowly slipped each stocking down her legs to cascade at her ankles. Holding her ass, I stood up so close she pressed firmly against me.
 
“You’re so beautiful,” I whispered before turning with her in my arms as I bent down and laid her out on the floor.
 
~Early Reviews~
 
This was the most amazing and perfect ending to the series. – Passionate Book Blog
 
Wow, wow.wow!
Ready for Flynn pt 3 is by far my favourite book from KL Shandwick, 5 stars are just not enough for how good this book was. Now I will say I cried my way through most of it, it's beautifully written and a bittersweet ending to Flynn and Valerie's story I was up until 4am to finish it. – Crazy Cajun Book Addicts
 
If you love a true romance and a sexy rock n roll one then this is the book for you...this 3rd one is also HOT AS HELL very sexy! – Rockstar Book Muse Blog

~About KL Shandwick~
 
Writing came relatively late in life for KL after a challenge by a friend led to The Everything Trilogy. She loves creating new characters and story lines. KL has worked in the health and social care sector for most of her adult life, so to have the opportunity to step out of serious roles and create colourful characters is very rewarding. She enjoys where they take her and each character has his or her own voice. KL doesn't use prepared outlines for her stories, preferring the characters to take their own direction as the story progresses.

~Synopsis~
 
I once was Erin, fierce and strong,
But now she's gone, I don't belong.
He wants my heart, but it's not mine.
I've hidden it, and now can't find
The soul it once took solace in.
All that's left is pain and sin.
But still, my dark knight keeps me here.
To live in hate and dread and fear.
So what will happen once he knows,
The more he hurts me, the more I grow?
The faster I flourish in the dark,
The harder I fight to leave my mark.
When his mind swallows me whole,
When he finds my heart as black as coal,
Will he save me from his hell,
Or remind me just how hard I fell?
I once was Erin, fierce and strong.
Now this pitch black world is where I belong.
I've waved the girl I was goodbye.
Now I am his Butterfly...

About the authors



International Bestselling Author Ker Dukey 
 
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that I tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Review: Binary Code by Rebecca Sherwin and Dawn Sidebottom



~Book Details~

TITLE: Binary Code

AUTHOR: D H Sidebottom & Rebecca Sherwin

RELEASE DATE: 31st August 2016

#CrackTheCode #MindFck
#RebeccaSherwin #DHSidebottom


~Synopsis~

Binary: Relating to, composed of, or involving two things.

Code: A system of words, letters, figures or symbols used to represent others, especially for the purposes of secrecy.

Everything comes in twos. His and hers. Mine and yours. Love and hate. Life and death. The world is made up of pairs.

So what happens when the line is blurred, when the rules we use to define our lives become…skewed?

What happens when the rules are broken? His and hers becomes his, hers and…theirs. Mine and yours becomes mine, yours and ours. Love and hate become love, hate and conflict. Life and death become a battle, an infinite number of risks swinging on a pendulum.

Carter cracked my code. He dug deep into the genetics of who I was and he rewrote every moment of my life. He forced his way in, reshaping every thought in my head, manipulating every instinct that kept me alive.

Yet, in doing so he altered the structure of his own code and broke every single rule he lived by. He was the encryption I couldn’t decipher, and I was the mystery that finally forced him to reveal exactly who he was.

This book contains adult themes, including M/F/M

~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for nothing than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.


I don't feel like I can do this book justice in a review...

Firstly let me say WHAT IN THE NAME OF HOLY HELL!!! :)

Sorry... but seriously. It has taken me a week to be able to make sense out of my notes and my thoughts about this book. How to write a spoiler free review... Here goes...

OK...

Binary Code...

Wow... I think this has to be one of THE BEST books I've read this year so far.

Honestly I was left completely speechless. Which is fantastic when it comes to the book but a complete pain in the ass when I have to write a review.

After finishing the book I messaged both authors and a friend asking "How on earth are these two authors allowed to be walking around without proper supervision?" I asked this because I think they are seriously disturbed and it makes for some seriously talented and amazing writing. (I hope there's more from these two together). ;) <3

The plot is extremely well thought out and very cleverly written, the flow is seamless and enhances the overall depth. The twists in Binary Code are so unexpected and unimaginable, that I found myself more than once saying What The...

The characters are extremely well developed and exude so much emotion and feeling, they easily get under your skin and into your mind and heart. They interact seamlessly together and make you feel as though you are there involved and witnessing each and every act.

The authors... I've read everything that Rebecca has published so far and Binary Code for me was one of the best! Rebecca's work never ceases to amaze and astound me, as well as disturb me some more ;) I must confess this is the first time I've read anything by Dawn *hangs head in shame and promises to rectify this really soon* I most certainly wasn't disappointed.

Together these two authors have worked extremely well, I think that Rebecca and Dawn have created an extremely dark, twisted, raw, gritty, disturbing and intense story which will cause a mind-blowing mind-fuck of epic proportions.

My rating is a HUGE:
