You came like hope by Jyoti Arora


Peehu:
“I heard them mourn my death. I lay in the next room. Motionless, silent, and staring at the ceiling.”

Adih:
“When it comes to a broken person, some of them are expert at blinding you. Spend an entire evening with such a person, but you may still not know how he is crushing inside.”

Uday:
“Who would say no to him? He is smart, intelligent, super handsome, rich, suave and sophisticated. He’s perfect!”

Pooja:
“Pooja gave no explanation. She asked no forgiveness. She just arrived in his home, resenting him for being her husband.”

Arunav:
“He had smiled as if nothing was wrong.
He had behaved as if he still had his dreams and hopes.
He had pretended as if it didn’t hurt.
But it did.”

Does Destiny hold the key to our happiness?
Is it always the feeble that is the victim?
Love can be the embrace of heaven. But what happens when it unleashes hellfire?

Lose yourself in the intense narrative of You Came Like Hope as it unleashes a rollercoaster of emotions, uncovers some bitter truths, challenges widespread prejudices, and forces you to reconsider your beliefs.






REVIEW:
At a glance, You Came Like Hope by Jyoti Arora is the love story between Peehu and Adih. As the protagonists, both their characters are well developed through their past and present stories. The both have some experiences in their pasts that stops them from taking a chance with each other. While the focus remains on how they work through their personal issues, we also learn about a few people in their lives and their struggles.

The book offers much more to the reader once they take a chance with it. In disguise of a love story, the book provides insights to domestic abuse and how even men can fall victim to it. While the truth about crimes against women is horrifying, no one talks about how even men can fall as a prey within the confines of his own home.

The author done an incredible job of telling a wonderful story. But I have to mention here - the blurb of the book did not really work for me. I had almost passed up the chance of reading this book because the blurb felt off putting.

Shane (Damage Control Series #4) by Jo Raven


★Available Now In Audio ★
Title: Shane (Damage Control Series #4)
Author: Jo Raven 
Performed By: Samantha Cook & Todd Howard 
Published By: Podium Publishing 






Once upon a time, my life was good. I had a family, I had a girlfriend, and hopes for the future. That was long ago, but I remember it. A hazy dream of what could have been.That's gone now. I lost it all. Life f--ked me over, and now I'm scared of my own damn shadow.
I'm training to be a tattoo artist, but I bet I'm not good enough. I have a roof over my head, but every morning I'm scared shitless that I'll find myself on the street again - or worse, back in prison.
And every time a pretty girl looks at me, every single f--king time, I know I can't be with her. Not only because she'll find out I'm an ex-con and run the other way, no. It's more than that. I just can't. The thought of anyone touching me, the thought of getting aroused from that touch brings back every damn nightmare from my past to swallow me whole.
Can't f--king do it.Not even if it's the prettiest girl on earth - Cassie. With her long blond hair and her pretty tits, her short skirts and high heels, she's all my fantasies rolled into one. See, the fact she kissed one of my buddies? That's good. The fact she looks at me like I'm a bug under her shoe? Even better .Because it means she's not interested in getting hot and sweaty with me, and that I can keep living that fantasy. The fantasy that she wants to be with me as much as I want to be with her - even though I know it will never happen.
Warning: If you have issues hearing about abuse (physical or mental) then please DO NOT listen to this book. 18+ for sexual content, language, and violence.

Under The Influence by Nikki Belaire



Title: Under The Influence 
Author: Nikki Belaire
Genre: Romance 







I hate him. But, I’m tough. I can handle being dumped. What I can’t handle is him acting like I meant nothing to him 
when he knew he was my everything. I’m over it. I’m over him. I’ve moved on and have everything I’ve ever wanted. I’m finally happy. At least I should be. I want to be. I pretend to be. Now he’s back. With reasons for leaving that I don’t understand or believe. But, I don’t care anymore what he says or does. I can't trust him. No matter how hard he tries to win me back. 
I’ll never forgive him.

She hates me. My girl’s tough. She put up with all my bullshit until I had to let her go and act like she wasn’t the only good thing in my life. I never got over it. I never got over her. But I pretended like I did to keep her safe. Until she tried to move on with some bastard who thought he could have her for himself. Could make her happy again after I almost destroyed her. Now I’m back. I know her secrets, and she knows mine. What kills me is that she doesn’t believe me. Doesn’t care what I say or do. But I’ll prove to her she can trust me. No matter what it takes, I will get her back. She’ll forgive me. And, even if she doesn’t, she’ll still be mine.





Sharp teeth nip at my bottom lip. Shutting me up. Halting my sincere expression. She doesn’t want me to speak? Fine. I’ll prove myself to her with my actions if not my words. My hand slides under her left thigh, lifting her leg to have her angled as close as possible, and plunge into her. Twisting side to side, putting my full weight on her clit the way she loves.

A smug jackass smile covers my face from her breathless gasp. She rotates with me. Getting the friction she needs. Getting off on the pressure. Getting there quick because of me. Because I fucking know what she likes. I fucking know what she needs. Not that son of a bitch.

“Gio.”

Fucking glorious to hear her cry my name while she convulses. Wracking her petite body with an enormous orgasm. I nuzzle her neck, sucking in the delicate skin, because the next one is going to be just as huge. “Hook up, angel.”

The sick bastard in me loves the flicker of fear in her wide eyes when they pop open. She knows exactly what’s going to happen with my growl in her ear. She’s going to get all the fucking proof she fucking needs. Obeying my command, her legs wrap around my hips while her arms coil around my torso. Bringing out the animal in me from her absolute submission. Rewarding her with what she wants for her deference.

I don't hold back.

I fuck her hard.

Caging her head between my forearm and chest while I palm her ass cheeks with my huge hand. Thrusting again and again, I'm half on my knees and deep in her pussy while she clings to me. Grasping my drenched body with all her strength. Slippery from the exertion of working to make her explode underneath me. Saturating us with the addictive scent of her arousal mingling with my own salty release.

Unable to touch her stunning face, I kiss the top of her head. Silky, damp hair tickles my lips. The flowery essence so wholesome and innocent. A reminder of how easily and often I fuck things up between us. Sex doesn't equal love. I fucking know this, but I must reach her. Own her. Consume her. Pounding into her over and over until her heaving breaths burst into a cry of pleasure, pushing me beyond the edge with her. My balls tighten up into my body, and I let loose. Erupting with every ounce of come my cock holds barring down in her. “God fucking damn.”

Incapable of withstanding the force, she untangles from me and drops back to the soaked sheets. I follow, wrapping my arm around the back of her neck and pinning her immobile against me while I collapse onto my hip. Probably scaring the fuck out of her from the side of my fist wedged against her temple. From the ferocity of my hold. The veracity of my tone. But I don't give a damn. “Don’t – for even one fucking second – ever think I don’t love you.”








Nikki writes contemporary romantic thrillers and admits to a weakness for alpha males and bad boys, especially ones who can't live without the strong women they love. She spends more time in her characters' lives than her own. But, when she's in the real world, her passions include reading, wine appreciating, running, and spending time with her husband and daughter.

Rook ( Sex and Bullets, #3) by Jo Raven




Title: Rook ( Sex and Bullets, #3) 
Author: Jo Raven 
Genre: Romance 
Photographer: Eric Battershell 
Model:  Zeke Samples 
Cover Art: Jo Raven








Pain turns me on
Danger lights me up
But she sets me on fire

It’s my turn to fight the shady Organization that’s dug its goddamn claws into every business in my town. Setting up my trap while keeping my friends safe is a challenge—and my private life shouldn’t interfere with my mission.
Except it does. Because the only way to reach the center of the web is to crawl right into the spider’s lair—and that turns out to be the Cronin Scarlet Hotel. Luxury hotel with a kink, and my regular haunt.
The perfect way in. Nobody will bat an eye if I ask for my usual relief from stress in one of their stylish pain rooms with some random girl who likes to dom. It will only take a phone call.
But there’s one complication: Mia.
A very s*xy complication.
She works at the hotel as a maid, and she’s prim and proper and damn pretty. So buttoned up, her gaze so icy when she looks at me, she pushes all my buttons. I want to tie her up, I want her to tie me up, I want to try every filthy kink possible with her.
But she doesn’t want anything to do with me ever since I kissed her. One searing hot kiss and I was lost, but she pushed me away.
Why do I want a girl who’s nothing like the women I usually go for? A girl who doesn’t want me. And how the hell am I going to keep my mind on taking down the corrupt Organization when she’s around?

*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.*

ROOK is the third book in the bestselling Sex and Bulllets series. It is a full-length standalone New Adult Romantic Suspense novel by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jo Raven.
