Ashes To Embers by Claire Marta

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

She’s forbidden.

Temptation personified in a curvy package of sugar and sin.

My one job is to obey the rules.

Keep my dick in my pants and forget the new nanny.

Be a good little soldier as the Devil himself raised me to be. Problem is I can’t.

I care more than I want to admit. I’m not supposed to have a conscience. Blood stains my hands and taints my soul.

There’s no escaping the chains that bind us, when duty threatens to destroy us both.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

This is book 3 in the series. From Ashes and Embers is different though because this one is told from Raziel and Jane’s points of view, not Lucifer and Mavi. We still see Lucifer and Mavi but From Ashes and Embers Focuses on Raziel and Jane.

Jane has been hired by Lucifer and Mavi as a nanny to their baby. When Jane arrives there is an instant spark for Raziel. Lucifer warns Raziel not to do anything with Jane, he is not to touch her. An order which Raziel is finding extremely hard to abide by.

Jane comes across as a sweet, happy part fae girl, but looks can be deceptive. Jane is hiding something from them all, something that could get her killed.

Will raziel keep his hands to himself? Will Jane be able to keep her secret? Just what is Lucifer up to this time?

This book hooked me from the very beginning! It is packed full of action and emotion. From Ashes and Embers is dark and twisted, full of suspense and intrigue. It’s like a carefully woven web that unravels before your very eyes. The chemistry between Raziel and Jane is off the charts, however, these two seem like polar opposites!

Claire’s words are remarkable, they convey every emotion perfectly and make you feel as though they are your own. Her writing style feeds you the details as though you’re following a breadcrumb trail, they make you feel as though you need that next crumb.

The plot is well thought out and flows seamlessly throughout. It takes you on an epic roller coaster ride through emotions, the secrets the twists and turns, it’s the kind of ride you don’t want to get off of.

From Ashes and Embers fits this series so well. It was amazing to finally get an insight into Raziel and his life as the Devil’s second-in-command in Hell.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading From Ashes and Embers. I can’t wait to see what Claire comes up with next in this series.

Fallen Angel, Part 6

 

A continuation of the Fallen Angel Series

 

By Tracie Podger

 

Blurb

 

Italy, the mistress that Brooke can no longer compete with was consuming her husband. He changed when he was there, and she wasn’t sure the Band Aid she’s placed over their fractures was man enough to hold.

****

There was something about Italy that was both loved and hated for very different reasons by Brooke and Robert Stone.

For Robert, Italy was in his blood, she ran through his genes, tantalising, calling to him constantly.

After a month apart, Brooke and Robert are reunited and it isn’t all smooth sailing. Devastation, pain, and more hurt than the couple could ever imagine is to be endured, but can they walk hand-in-hand from it this time?

Does Italy and the change in Robert become too much for Brooke to cope with?

Excerpt

 

A tsunami had washed through my family. A typhoon, tornado, and hurricane all rolled into one had rocked the very fabric that held us together. We survived, of course, we survive everything—Well, some of us did.

I don’t think I’d ever cried so much. I’d sobbed alone into my pillow at night, and I’d wailed onto the shoulders of my friends and family. The one I needed, I wanted, whose absence made my heart and chest physically ache was missing. My body hurt, my throat was permanently sore from the shouts and screams lodged in there. I had to keep my profanities, my anger, inside for the sake of my son. He had lost as well, and I had to remind myself of that on a regular basis. The bitterness that constantly bubbled in my stomach in the form of acid was beginning to rot me from within. I found myself constantly taking medication. I doubted the copious amounts of wine helped the situation.

During the day I smiled, I went about business as normal, or as normal as my life was at that point. I’d spent many a minute lying in the footwell of the car as we exited the house to dodge the fucking paparazzi and the constant flashes against the darkened windows of the Range Rover. Every time I blinked, I saw flashes of white light. I kept my son indoors for the longest period of time for fear of telephoto lenses capturing his tears and sorrow.

Security was so tight, I couldn’t breathe. I wanted it and I loathed it in equal measure. I switched from anger to sadness to resentment, and then to understanding like a swing in a strong wind.

I spoke to him, regularly. At first, all I could do was curse and shout. Then it was tears and explanations. I was still angry, I was still sad, but I understood, and there was a part of me that actually didn’t like myself for understanding. I was a ball of confusion. I craved normality, knowing that was never going to happen.

Fallen Angel Parts 1 to 4 & Robert by Tracie Podger

Firstly, I haven’t read the entire series yet!

I’ve only read Parts 1 to 4 and Robert as these are the only ones I have in signed paperback. This series for me deserves to be read in paperback, which is why it’s taking me so long to actually read them! Now though I’m waiting for Tracie to bill me for the remaining books and then to sign and post them to me!

If you haven’t read these books yet and you may find as my reviews progress, there might be spoilers for the previous book.

You have been warned!!

✫.•° Fallen Angel Part 1 °•.✫

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

On the first day of her holiday to Washington, DC, Brooke Stiles meets Robert Stone.

Dark eyed, damaged and dangerous – Stone has never had a normal relationship for fear of his past being exposed. Not knowing how to respect nor love, he struggles with his feelings for a woman who makes him question everything that he is.

Brooke falls in love with him and as their relationship grows she learns who he really is. Her future is set. She is to heal her man and mend his broken soul. But can she do the one thing that he asks?

This is a story of an ordinary woman who falls in love with an extraordinary man and has to discover whether she is strong enough to forgive him his past.

Contemporary Romance for readers over 18 – this is the first book in the Fallen Angel series, a Mafia Romance containing graphic scenes of sex.

So what is the Fallen Angel series…

This is a mafia ‘romance’, with the emphasis on the romance. The four books are narrated by Brooke, a British woman who travels to Washington, DC, and falls in love. This is her story, her journey into a world she has only ever seen in a movie. As is traditional, Brooke will be shielded from any ‘mafia’ activity, she won’t know what’s going on, what she finds out will be a surprise. Please don’t go into this book expecting a gun-slinging mafia moll from the 1950’s 🙂 This is a modern take on what the mafia are now, in the twenty-first century. There is a reason for the title, you’ll discover this throughout the books. There are four books in this story so, no, you won’t know it all in book one.

I wanted to explore what it would be like for me, or you, to fall into a world we have no knowledge of. It’s my belief that perhaps, as British women, we wouldn’t take it seriously, perhaps we’d find it exciting. Our major reference into that world is a movie made a lot of years ago 🙂

I hope you enjoy the read.

This book is not paranormal, has nothing to do with angels, fallen or otherwise.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I’ve heard so many good things about The Fallen Angel Series by Tracie Podger, I was glad to have finally gotten around to starting this series.

Brooke has gone to America to visit her best friend Sam. She’s just come out of a long-term relationship and isn’t looking for another man, she just wants to spend some quality time with her best friend.

She arrives in America and heads to Sam’s work to wait for him to finish. She heads into the office kitchen to make a coffee, whilst she’s waiting when she suddenly has the feeling she’s being watched.  Brooke soon finds out that she just encountered Robert Stone; Sam’s elusive boss. The events that follow successfully turn Brooke’s life upside down. There is more to Robert than meets the eye.

Brooke comes across as a nice down to earth kind of girl. She works hard and doesn’t want to let people down, she also knows that something is missing. She loves Sam and his partner Scott, she feels guilty when circumstances prevent her from spending as much time with them as she’d originally wanted to.

Robert is a hard man to work out. He has so many secrets and has built some seriously high protective walls around him and his family. He likes to be in control. When Brooke comes into his world his control is tested. Robert is also very protective of those he cares about.

These two make a good team and balance each other out. The other characters are also really good and they complete the overall group dynamic well. I loved how none of the characters were flat or one-dimensional, they all have they’re own layers and secrets to be discovered.

The plot is good, it has a good steady pace, it’s full of twists and unexpected turns. Tracie has created a wonderfully realistic world for these fantastic characters. She feeds you all the pieces of an intricately woven web of secrets, and leaves you wanting more!

I’m glad I’ve finally popped my Fallen Angel cherry and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

Great starting point Tracie!

✫.•° Fallen Angel Part 2 °•.✫

✫.•°Blurb °•.✫

When Brooke Stiles had said, “It was in a small room in an office block in Washington, DC, that my life changed, forever,” she had no idea of the enormity of that statement.

Just a few short months ago, Brooke, had lived a quiet suburban life in the UK. She now owns a closet of clothes she could only dream about and has been swept off her feet by trouble with a capital T.

Once Robert Stone came to terms with the fact that he was in love with Brooke, he knew he could never let her go. Not letting her go means introducing her to his life, past and present.

However, when Robert’s past and present collide, Brooke does the one thing that Robert begs her not to. Does it change her? Has that light that he sees in her eyes been extinguished?

This is a story of an ordinary girl who finds the strength to become the extraordinary woman, and keeps her promise to the man she owes her existence to.

Fallen Angel, Part 2 – A Mafia romance – contemporary romance for readers over the age of 18. Contains graphic scenes of sex.

This is the continuation of Robert and Brookes lives

Now that Brooke has made a decision about their relationship, she gets to see Robert for who he truly is. As Brooke becomes more involved in her new life, she is constantly learning how things are done now. Not everything is plain sailing though.

When Robert’s business plans in New York are having issues, Robert decides to take a family trip to sort it out, and by family, I mean Robert, Brooke, Travis and some of the Stone House residents. Events in New York take a turn and rapidly become nail-biting!!!

In this book, we also start learning a little bit more about Travis too. We find out snippets of how his past is affecting his present and about Robert and Travis became friends.

Tracie’s writing style feels as though it’s effortless, it’s so easy to read and the more I read the further into the story I was pulled. The emotion and love that Tracie has put into her writing are also clear to see and feel as I was reading.

I have enjoyed every single page and I’m glad I have part 3 to read straight after.

✫.•° Fallen Angel Part 3 °•.✫

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Being married to the dark and dangerous Robert Stone doesn’t come without its problems – trust being one of them.

Trusting your average husband means you believe he won’t cheat on you. Trusting a man like Robert is accepting that he will kill to protect his family.

Brooke loves her husband – mind, body, and soul – she will do whatever is necessary to protect that love.

But what happens when Robert discovers he wants something Brooke can’t give him?

This is a story of an extraordinary couple who find the strength to become the people they want to be.

But can they have it all?

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

As the story of Robert and Brookes lives and love unfold the more we see just how people change and adapt both together and individually.

Robert is a dark and dangerous man, but he is fiercely loving, he would do anything to protect those he loves. When tragedy strikes relationships become strained, the question is can those relationships be repaired or rebuilt.

Fallen Angel Part 3 shows us just how far Robert has come, just how much he has changed and grown. He still has the dark and dangerous air to him, but I saw a more humorous, almost softer side to him with regards to his family, it’s really quite endearing.

Travis has a bigger more central role in this book too, which has left me wanting to know more about him, I guess I’ll just have to wait until I can get my hands on a signed copy of his own book!

This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I was sucked right into the story alongside everyone with ease. Tracie’s writing flows from scene to scene incredibly well, she has a real knack for knowing how much detail to give him when to give it. The emotion held in this book is off the charts. I’m pretty sure I was taken through every emotion I know of!

Once again, I’m glad to have Fallen Angel Part 4 sat on my shelf waiting for me!

✫.•° Fallen Angel Part 4 °•.✫

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

It was in a small room in a hotel in Washington, DC, that Brooke Stone’s life changed forever—again.

Life had been peaceful, as peaceful as being a member of one of the most powerful crime families in America could be.

But life has a habit of throwing a curve ball, a curve ball so fast and so wide it knocks everyone from their feet.

From the streets of DC to the hills of Tuscany, from death to the utmost joy – Join Brooke for the final chapter in the Fallen Angel series and witness the birth of a new dynasty.

This is a story of discovery, of finding a past, of heartache and the greatest of love.

‘I’ve seen death and I’ve faced my worst fears – I survived.’

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

The stone family have been having a fairly normal life; well as normal as a mafia family can have; for a few years. Now it’s time to shake it up a bit, time for events to test the family’s strength. Will they be strong enough to survive a final time?

Fallen Angel Part 4 is jam-packed with emotion, an emotion that is palpable and raw, it’s like nothing I’ve felt in a long time! Fallen Angel Part 4 isn’t focused as much just on Robert and Brooke, this time it’s the whole Stone family even the ones we didn’t know were around.

This book is full of twists and turns, but it now begins to answer the questions that I have been left with from the previous books.

Robert and Brooke have endured so much and they have both changed an incredible amount over the course of these books. Having Gerry has changed them again, it’s clear just how much they love him and that he is their main priority.

This family are epic. They are always there for one another; the support and loyalty are like nothing I’ve seen or experienced before. I’m so glad to have been a part of their journey.

This book is once more jam-packed with emotion, the heartache and passion are raw and real. It was as though it was my own heartache I was feeling and yes, I cried, more than once!

Fallen Angel Part 4 is written as the final part of this family’s story and it really does work extremely well, it has answered all my previous questions, but I know that there’s a Fallen Angel Part 5 out now!

Overall, I have loved every page of Fallen Angel Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4. I cannot wait to get my hands on a signed copy of Fallen Angel Part 5 to see just what Tracie has in store for this family next! But for now, I’ll be catching up on the novellas that accompany this series.

First up… Robert…

✫.•° Robert; Fallen Angel Series 0.5 °•.✫

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Robert Stone was six years old when his parents were killed and he was left to live a life of abuse at the hands of a mad, religious aunt in America. At the age of eleven, alone and rejected, he cracked – with terrible consequences. But he survived.

He enjoys his very private life and he answers to no one. Until one day he meets a woman – a woman that will challenge everything he is and everything he has been.

This is the story of a remarkable man, a dangerous man. His life in his words. This is the story of Robert Stone.

Contemporary romance for readers over 18.

Part of the Amazon best selling Fallen Angel series, Robert is a supplemental novel, best read as a standalone or following Fallen Angel, Parts 1 and 2.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

After reading Fallen Angel Parts 1-4 and seeing how Robert the man has changed and grown; it’s now time to learn about Robert the child and how he grew into such a man.

Robert hasn’t had a conventional childhood, he was robbed of it when his parents were killed when he was six years old. He spent the next 5 years living in America with his Aunt.

Robert’s Aunt was a crazy religious lady who had rules, if her rules weren’t followed then there were punishments; cruel and harsh punishments. When Robert turned 11 he snapped, he decided it was time. Decision made Robert ended up on the streets, but he adapted and learnt how to survive. Robert’s teenage years were spent working for a respected businessman, he saved what he was paid and only spent what he needed to and swore he’d make something of himself(and Travis).

Now…

Now he is Robert Stone.

Jeez, has Robert been through some shit in his life! He had such a rough start in life he has basically taught himself everything he now knows. So many years when all he could rely on was himself. I am amazed he learnt to love and trust anyone but boy when he does he does it fiercely.

Once again Tracie has put a lot of time, effort, love and emotion into this book and it shows. As I was reading I could feel the emotions that Robert was experiencing, the heartbreak felt like my own. Even as a teenager Robert must have had some serious drive and determination to become a better person; as lesser people would have given up!

This book also gives a little more of an insight into Travis when he was younger as they were both friends and worked together, I think that Robert took on the role of the older more protective of the two, as it was him who was saving the money and making plans so that they can have a better future.

I really do need to get a hold of the novella for Travis so that I can find out more about him!

This story is heart-breaking and heart-warming at the same time. I loved every page, I just wish that I had all the other books in this series to keep reading!
