Reign: A Royal Military Romance
Roxie Noir (Author)
Hazel is the daughter of the American Ambassador to Sveloria. She is on her way to spend time with her mother. Hazel's mother gave her a folder with information that she expected to study. It contains the local customs and traditions, as well as the pictures of the royal family. This folder caused Hazel problems when she could find her passport. Fortunately, Hazel is able to stay calm and talk her way out of trouble. As she departs the train, Hazel discovers that she is meeting the royal family at any moment.
Kostya is the Prince of Sveloria. He spent 4 years in the Royal Guard. Kostya has trouble dealing with the things he did and things he saw while in the elite military unit. His father, the King, is pushing Kostya to find a good Svelorian girl, get married, and produce an heir. He has no desire to do that. Kostya and his father are always butting heads. When he see Hazel, Kostya is instantly attracted and interesting in her. Both Hazel and Kostya know that they need to stay away from each other, but the two are drawn to each other.
Kostya is a different kind of sexy, bad boy. Hazel is a spunky girl, who is having a run of bad luck. These two seem to have nothing in common. They are from different countries & classes. This story has lots of actions, drama, romance, and humor. There are well developed characters and a great plot. I was given this story in exchange for an unbiased review.
4 1/2 stars!

Taken By Chance: A Bad Boy Ex-Con Dark Romance
Ravenna Russo (Author)
5 "Power Outage" Star Rating!!!
Cassie is working hard to put herself through school and pay her rent. She is a feisty, independent woman. She has tattoos and likes to wear animal print. Cassie doesn't live in a very good part of town. When there is a power outage, it doesn't phase Cassie. At night she leaves the window open, Cassie believes that she can take care of herself. She carries around pepper spray.
Chance is hiding from the FBI and the mafia and crime boss. He testified against the people that he used to work for. He is trying to blend in and look harmless. Chance is a dangerous man, who has certain tastes. He is an alpha male with a dirty mouth, who likes to dominate.
Chance and Cassie have been watching each other, but don't think that the other person knows or realizes that the other one is there. They image / fantasize what they would like to do / experience with the other person. Both Cassie and Chance have "scars" or things that they are not proud of in their past. As the night progresses, the heat in the apartment and the story-line become red hot and steamy. You will have to read this book to see how it ends.
I have a weakness for bad boys, so I jumped right into this book. This book does end in a cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see what happens next for Chance and Cassie. I adore both characters. Cassie with her spunky spirit, and Chance with that filthy mouth and mind. Taken By Chance is a quick and sizzling read. After reading this book, I have discovered a new author. I am definitely going to look into Ravenna Russo's other books.
Overall Story = 5 Stars!
Hotness / Sexy Level = 5 Stars!
Cliffhanger = Yes
POV = Alternating (Each Chapter)
Recommend to Others = Hell Yes
Bad Boy / Alpha Male = Yes
