I am so sad that this series is over but This was an Epic ending to a Series that will forever hold a special place in my heart. The Revenge we all want is so close my eyes were practically glazed over with red.

I don't think there was a single emotion I didn't feel while reading this. we also are introduced to new characters that are in the novella Brutal Revelation and It definitely feels like we may get a spin off series or book within the world, (which I am on board with!!! HECK YEAHHH!)

Ariah is back and bringing a whole new entourage with her and a surprise to shock our guys...well most of our guys. The guys royally fudged up in the last book and have some serious making up to do. I would be lying if I said that I did not enjoy watching them be iced out.

I would also like to toss in a reminder to check the TW's the author keeps a full list of all possible tropes/triggers. (as this book specifically holds a possible trope that most do not enjoy). Take care when reading.

I was not sure what to expect when I picked this up but I knew I loved morning Glory Milking Farm so sweet Berries was a must read.

This was such a sweet romance with little flavor burst's of spice added in like as voyeurism (don't get me wrong they do the dirt often and its described in the best details but its sweet and spicy). Mothman was definitely a Timid feeling monster he was unsure throughout the book as he had never been with a human before and held a bit of...fear? no maybe anxiety when it came to humans due to some past interactions. 

overall though it was a really sweet read and I am really excited to dive into Moon Blooded Breeding Clinic.

 This book will have your sanity unraveling and send your fear-rousal into overdrive.

Be warned there is no HEA in this Book, it's not a dark romance it is an erotic horror. It is pure chaos and psychological terror. Dark and gory, with obsession, lies and extremely questionable and fudged up spice. The deeper you get into the book the more and more unhinged it becomes!

The end completely mind fudged me at the end & had me saying WTF just happened!!

This book was chosen as one of my friends "sisterhood of the traveling book's" books. that made this lively fun book even more fun since I was able to read my friends annotations. 

I will say before I start that this monster rom-com is a non-spicy read so if your someone who needs the smooot, maybe not this one for you.

that being said I loved watching Darla Drake Duchess of Death go through her monster-life crisis. she has a sort of slapstick humor about her and is quick to threaten your live with her scourge.  

I would be lying if I said Jarko did not frustrate me a smidge with his reluctance to open up, but then again, he is running from something in his past.

in the end we see self-growth and a grand gesture moment was what I was waiting for the entire book!

I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did for one reason only. That is because it has a child in the plot line and I don’t normally enjoy that within my romance reads. Oh my gosh was I wrong! I think that’s is might be my all to favorite Tiffany Roberts book to date.

Gabriela is a single mom who is struggling to make ends meet especially during the holiday season. Her daughter is just about the sweetest most understanding child ever.

Mason is the “guy”…(Alien) next door who fled his home planet and all he wants to do is like a peaceful life with meaningful relationships. He’s been incognito looking out for Gabriela and her daughter since he’s lived across the street. Until one day he shoots his shot and invites her to get hot chocolate🥹🥰….andddd he’s brushed off😆.


It has immaculate Hallmark holiday vibes but don’t let that fool you this book had me balling it was so emotional and my heart broke for Gabriela and her daughter just as much as it did for Mason.

Kidnapped by the Krampus is one of the best Krampus monster romance stories I have read. I would definitely label it as a darker holiday romance with non-con elements among other things so take care when going into it and checking the TW's.

it has all of the holiday feels our fmc manages to be filled with so much holiday wonder while also having a traumatic holiday past that prevented her from ever experience the festivities and Oh Holy Night is Krampus the most devastatingly dark and delicious broken soul ever! 

he has a special peen with eggnog flavored you know what, and the things that tongue did!!! this book was just a Wonderful Christmas time read.

This is the last book in the Silver Locket Series, and there could not have been a more perfect way to wrap up this series. 

this one was kind of bittersweet, I struggled to start it because I knew it was the last time we would hear about the tales of Jane Ables a prostitute turned fearsome pirate. I love how this book had you looking back on the many versions of Jane and all of the different trials that happened throughout the entire series. 

there is so much action, trials, and tough decisions in this final book. Jane will do anything to keep the ones she loves safe though even if that means the loss of others and I love her so much for this. after all she's been through seeing her get her HEA was everything but it came with a great cost. 

this series will forever hold a special place in my heart.
