MADE TO LOVE by SM West: Review

Made to LoveMade to Love by S.M. West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Mon trésor."

If you know me, then you certainly know that I love dark reads. Sometimes, though, it's good to change, if only the for the time of one book. That's why when I've been asked if I was interested in reading and reviewing (thank you, guys!) Made to love, I didnt hesitate.

Made to Love is a second chance romance, a sweet love story, the feel-good kind of books. It's refreshing, will plaster a big smile on your face, maybe will make shed a tear (again that's what happens when the strory feels real, so don't worry ;) .)

I was so glad when I read that Olivia is 42 ! (Finally an « older » heroine, lol !) After her divorce with a husband who used to neglect her, she decided to start to really live : Raising her two teenage kids, she creates a interior design business, trains daily to stay in shape. Her life is back on track.... until she meets Sam, a sexy famous chef, determined to make her his. Olivia could be you or your friend or sister, her doubts, insecurities, expectations, concerns are real ; in her situation, who wouldn't be frightened to lose what they built by themselves?
I loved that they took their time to build their relationship, although their attraction was immediate and undeniedable. Sam is a gentle soul, very patient, but make no mistake, he doesn't hesitate to make his intentions pretty clear and pretty fast, in a pretty sexy way !!!
« He kisses me until I'm breathless, demolishing all kisses before. Virgin lips. Taken. His lips mark me. Consume me. »

SM West did a fantastic job at capturing the ties and the dynamics between her characters, they all are well developped and endearing. Made to love isn't just about love, it's about friendship and family ; a life story. Always in an optimistic tone. Well done !!!

"We. Are. Us. Livvie."

MAKE ME by LP Lovell: Review

Make Me (Kiss of Death, #0.5)Make Me by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My friends kept recommending that series and I'm now so curious to dive into it!

Make me is the prequel of the Kiss if death series, which introduces your to Una's life. In this novella, you'll find out how she became the deadly killer she is in the series.

It's intense, brutal, dark, lethal, straight to the point, with at times sweetness that felt really good, like a reprieve from her suffering.
I'm not going to sum it up, it's short, fast paced, read it you won't be disappointed. I'm so ready for more!
"To watch her fight is like poetry, to see her kill is art, a dancer spinning her craft on the great stage."

KISS ME by LP Lovell: Review

Kiss Me (Kiss of Death #2)Kiss Me by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Love is not a weakness, Morte. It is strength."

Una's and Nero's story continued in that second installment of the Kiss Of Death series, with the same intensity and craziness. The characters are as driven as in Kill me, although their motivations are different, with Una struggling between her past and her future and Nero trying to keep her safe despite their lifestyle. Now allies, partners, lovers, Una and Nero fight for what could have been, could be. They are more combative ans desperate than ever, almost unstoppable, really, I. their attempt at keeping their enemies at bay. I particularly loved the touch of vulnerability they showed, it takes their personnalities to a whole new level, more human, but never weaker.
"I want all of her. Every beautifully fucked up part. She is perfectly ruined. My vicious little butterfly, my savage queen, my love."

The plot is really well tied, rich, suspenseful and fast - paced. I felt the distress, the conflicts the characters felt. I was hooked from the beginning of that series to the end, that was just perfect. Una and Nero stayed true to themselves, their dynamics was respected, even in their (view spoiler), thank you for that, lol!

KILL ME by LP Lovell : Review

Kill Me (Kiss of Death, #1)Kill Me by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Welcome to a world of power games, where loyalties will be tested, boil will be shed and lines will be crossed.
Kill me is the story of Una, the Bratva most feared assassin. She is young, beautiful, innocent - looking, yet ruthless, immune to feelings and emotions, the best weapon the Russian mafia created: "The kiss of death."
Hired by the Italian mafia, she meets Nero, Capo of New - York. As lethal as she is, he knows no boundaries when it comes to violence, and plays by no rules.
"The Italians value family and honour above all else. Turns out Nero values neither. He is a ruthless fuck."

Then starts a dark dance between the, a formidable a deadly attraction . "What will it be, Nero? Kill me or Kiss me?"

They use each other in order to get what they want, the problem is, who do you trust? Alliances are made and unmade, the unter becomes hunted, the bigger pictures appears little by little until you are left breathless and dying for book #2 ( which I hope will reveal the little parts I was missing in Kill me ;) )
