Review Tour! Bought By The Badman By Hayley Faiman

Giovanna Rossi was born an Italian Mafia princess, by blood only. Raised to be nothing more than a toy used to satisfy men’s pleasures. She was always available for a price. She never dreamed to hope for anything other than physical relationships. 
Aidan O’Neil was once an Irish Prince, next in line to his father’s throne. He grew up to despise what his father stood for. After all, he helped bring the Irish king to his knees. His devotions now lie with the newly formed union between his Irish mob and the Russian Bratva. 
An arrangement meant only to release physical tension, turns into so much more—it turns into everything. When a broken prince meets his match in a broken princess, their bond cannot be denied. 
*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Language, Violence, and Sexual Content.

Russians, Irish and Italians oh my! Bought By The Badman is the latest book in the Russian Bratva series and was originally going to be the final book. I devoured this one. I have loved this entire series since I first read it but I really couldn’t put this one down even when I had to. Now there are some darker moments in this book like throughout the series so be prepared if you have potential triggers.

Giovanna and Aidan consumed my time. These two characters will earn your loyalty rather quickly. Aidan was sexy, he was dangerous, he could be sweet, and he could be a mean son of a bitch at times. I even wanted to take Aidan’s gun out and shoot him a time or ten, but I couldn’t help but still love him. I understood his line of thinking to an extent but at the same time I while wanting to shoot him I wanted to scream for him to open his damn eyes already. Giovanna, I felt for her. She should have been something precious instead she was cast aside so to speak but in the end,  what happened to her brought her to Aidan, even if it was in a very unconventional way so to speak. The chemistry between these two is off the charts but it’s not only sexual, it is emotional as well.

Remember how I stated it was supposed to be the last book? Well Ms. Faiman has one more planned, maybe we can bug her to keep on even after that. Bought By The Badman has me wanting to read the entire series over again because I can’t help but love the badman, pun intended. 

I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard. 
Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.


Release Blitz! Shades By Jaime Reese

Life made him dangerous. Love made him lethal.
Killian Marks is a third-generation hitman. After hunting monsters for over twenty years, he lives under no illusions of happily ever afters and fairy tales. Until he meets a man who threatens to disarm him, by giving him hope for a future and showing him there’s more to life than just death.
For Nick, living in shadows is second nature. He’s all too familiar with the dark side of humanity and knows how delicate life can be. Each new day is a gift, even though it means doing it alone. But he’ll risk his survival for the one man who awakens something deep within and leaves him yearning for more.
Nick wants to solve the mystery behind the dark, brooding man, while Killian craves the life and light emanating from Nick. They soon discover they have more in common than either could have anticipated. With both their lives and hearts at stake, they must confront the ghost from Nick’s past intent on tying up a loose end. Only then will they truly find peace, and discover the shades of life in between.

I have been a fan of Jamie Reese’s books for a while now, the way she writes a m/m romance draws you in because the characters may be a bit flawed or cracked but never broken. Shades in the latest book from her and I really enjoyed Killian and Nick’s story. I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I am going to keep this review short if possible.

There is suspense, secrets, funny moments, sexy moments and moments that seem as if fate had a plan for these two all along. I bet you are wondering what I mean but if I reveal it, then you will miss an important aspect of the story. Now I will admit that I wish it hadn’t dragged on as long as it had, and don’t take that the wrong way because it wasn’t boring by any means but I think some things could have been cut back. Oh and I love Dex, can’t forget to mention that, he had me giggling more than once. Shades by Jamie Reese is another m/m romance that I enjoyed and I cant wait to see what she writes next. 

Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
