Trustworthy by Astrid Amara

This is the second book in the sci-fi  Policy of Lies series and is a solid follow up. Ivo and Mack were involved when they were younger, but they’re separated after a battle with rebel forces. Years later Ivo, with no memory of his past, ends up taking Mack prisoner and the reunion begins.

It is definitely not all hearts and flowers and our heroes are certainly made to work for their happily ever. They’re on opposing sides of a corporation war and this becomes more apparent with a few surprising admissions from Mack. I enjoyed the world building, which was pretty dark and oppressive. There was plenty of snarky tension between the leads and it was super hot. Ivo has a unique and refreshing voice, despite his memory loss and I just adored Mack.

This was definitely enjoyable, but it felt a little short. If anything,  I wanted a little more from the novel, longer maybe and more depth. Good read and I recommend you check out A Policy of Lies.

Single Malt by Layla Reyne

This was another great action drama from Carina Press. I’ve been enjoying several of their novels over the past few months.

I think the author has created a great set up for future novels and the romance was believable and there was good tension throughout the story between the protagonists. The case work and FBI plot was very like watching a TV drama and I did find it super entertaining. I found parts of this novel a little more angsty that I’d normally be keen on, but it was not overwhelming. I am really looking forward to reading the second book now and cannot wait to see what happens next for Aidan and Jamie. A great rainy day read and an author to watch.

4 stars.

Bad Judgement by Sidney Bell

I absolutely loved this. The snark was strong, along with brilliant chemistry and excellent world building. I think if occasional darker moments are not your thing then this might not be for you, but I adored it. I had a few moments where Embry reminded me a little of Laurent Captive Prince, but just a smidgen though. It was totally its own book.

I really hope this author writes loads more books, and fast, because I’m lined up already for purchasing. Excellent and twisty, dark plot. Long with a slow build of tension (my favourite) and some seriously excellent sex scenes. Loved it.

5 Stars.
