Review: Playing Royal

Playing Royal Playing Royal by Misti Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can't express how much I loved this book and how different it is from what I have been reading of late.

This is the second book from the Vice Agency series that Misti has written and in it we meet Kaiser, a male escort. Kaiser specialises in making your fantasies a reality........ You want to be Cinderella for a night........ then the Vice Agency can make it happen. Kaiser plays the game, makes your every fantasy come true and then at midnight.... leaves.

But Kaiser is hiding a secret, one that he will have to stop running from......... soon.

Allie is a girl working nights behind a bar so that she never has to resort to asking her evil Stepmother for money or help. Every night, always at the same time a stranger comes into her bar, requesting the same drink, saying not a word.

The thing I love about Misti's books is they are not always way you presume them to be. There is always a twist, something to make it stand out just that little bit more than the rest. This novel is no different.

What starts out as a game slowly becomes real and as a reader you become drawn into Allie and Kaiser's world, their story. You become addicted to the words, wanting to ignore the world so that you can find out how their story will end.

A fantastic read and one I am going to enjoy recommending.

Review: Man of Honor

Man of Honor Man of Honor by Diana Gardin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of Saved by the Seal from Diana and when the opportunity came along to read Man of Honor I jumped at it.

In this instalment we meet Drake Sullivan an ex army ranger who now owns his own mechanics shop. To start, we learn that his mother, who was an alcoholic for most of his life has died and he is attending her funeral. After he returns home he himself drowns himself in alcohol to forget.

We also meet Mea Jones, a girl with a dark, disturbing past who lives her life by a set of rules. Her rules are simple she has one night with a guy and that's it. She doesn't do dating. Her rules allow her control over her life, something taken away from her when she was a child.

These two connected during a very hot and steamy night many years prior, but once it was over Mea upped and walked out of Drake's room and subsequently his life.

When Drake's mother dies, Mea re enters his life attempting to help him from making the same mistake as his mother. When they reconnect, all the hidden feelings and chemistry between them resurfaces making this one hell of a story.

There are lots of secrets and twists that are slowly uncovered during the course of this book which makes it extremely hard to put down. It's a wonderfully written story of two people who allow themselves to believe that they are truly deserving of love and the opportunity to heal from the scars of their pasts.

You really need to grab a copy as you wont be sorry.
