Malum: Part 1 by Amo Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yep, Amo Jones did just what I thought she would do – gave me one of the biggest book hangovers of my life…and a regular hangover because of the copious amounts of alcohol that were needed to get through this book! She will blow your mind – she will take you down all the dark and dirty trails of The Elite Kings all while dangling the charming yet vengeful Nate Malum in front of you. He is every one of my fantasies come true and no matter how broken or bold he is – I still want him!

You may think you know Nate from the first three books in this series….but you don’t. And as much as I love his fun-loving playboy side, there is something much darker lurking in him and when you see it come out, be prepared. I didn’t think I could fall for him any harder than I already had – but I did. I love his possessiveness, his cocky and arrogant attitude, and the confidence in which he runs in his circle of Elite Kings. There were times in this book I wanted to scream at him – I cried, I wanted to throw my Kindle, and punch him in the face. But I have to believe deep down this is how he is meant to be. A Jones is pure evil genius with how she creates and writes her characters, and Nate’s transformation from the playboy to the doting father to the malicious King is absolutely mesmerizing.

Tillie Stuprum… this girl is one of the reasons I have not been able to stop thinking about this book in the past 48 hours. This girl is my queen and I want to be her BFF and rule the Kings and Perdita with her!! She is the perfect match for Nate with her sassy and confident attitude. I love that she doesn’t back down to him. She doesn’t cower. She is bold, fearless, beautiful, and fits right into the mysterious and devious world of the Kings. The past that haunts her has actually become one of her best weapons…she is resilient and her rough edges make her all the more appealing to the King’s world. Her love-hate relationship with Nate is a roller-coaster ride that I am not ready to get off of just yet. Their chemistry is explosive and I love every second they are together – loving or hating each other.

Malum was everything I expected and nothing I expected – in true Elite Kings fashion. A Jones writes this book brilliantly. Each sentence, paragraph and chapter hold significance and you’d better pay attention because SHIT GETS CRAZY! Amo creates this “dream world” where it’s so easy to fall for every character despite their flaws and demons. She makes the darkest and ugliest of traits in them somehow beautiful and alluring, and she pulls in her readers with tempting fantasy-like scenarios that I just can’t get enough of!

Although at times you want to question these young adults’ behavior – this is the world of Amo Jones and every single reason why I fell in love with her writing and stories. This book is a Must-Read, and it will consume your mind long after you’ve finished it…the fantasies, the questions, and the possibilities of what is to come! The world of the Elite Kings is like a drug and I am addicted. Well done once again A Jones! I can’t wait for Part II!!!

New Release: Flip Trick by Amo Jones

 

Flip Trick, an all-new standalone bad-boy romance by Amo Jones is NOW AVAILABLE!!

 

I did something I had never done before.

I had a one-night stand.

Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape.

I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend’s phone…

Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as shit, but your lips looked better wrapped around my…

I did NOT text him back.

I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again…

I’m Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I’d managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I’m what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I’m skating, flipping ollie’s over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom’s new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother.

*this is a standalone novel*

About Amo Jones

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Review: Father Figures by Dee Ellis

Father Figures (A Crystal Cove Holiday #8)Father Figures by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book/novella I have read by Dee Ellis, and I really did not know what to expect. When I realized this story is the 8th in a series I was a bit worried I would be missing out on some characters or storyline; but you can definitely read it as a stand-alone.

This story is about a widowed father, Austin, of three girls who is moving back to his wife’s hometown to be/feel closer to her. Even after several years, he has not allowed himself to truly move on and be happy. Enter Shelby – the younger native bartender in town who catches his eye. I loved her immediately – her spunk, feisty and flirty attitude, and especially how she was with his daughters. Even though Austin could be quite intimidating, she always stood her ground and I loved her confidence and passion.

Austin was so torn between staying loyal to his wife and his vows of the past, and moving forward for both himself and his daughters. At times he made me frustrated; but I can’t begin to imagine what it would be like to move on from your first spouse and true love. The author did a fantastic job of portraying what must be a raging internal war that must go on in a widower’s mind when they meet ‘that person’ after losing the one they thought was theirs forever.

Although I typically find that novellas can be rushed in their story-telling, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It is passionate, has great secondary characters, and the descriptive scenes make you feel like you are right there on the ranch with Austin, Shelby, and three adorable daughters. Well done Dee Ellis! I’m looking forward to the next in this series.
