Review: Twisted End by Tara Thomas

Twisted End (Sons of Broad, #0.7)Twisted End by Tara Thomas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Janie and Brent's story concludes in this final thrilling prequel novella for the Sons Of Broad series.

Fast-paced, the loose ends from the previous novellas are tied up. Future protagonists are introduced, setting the scene for the remaining full-length novels in this series. So far, I'm totally hooked as I crave to know who the Gentleman is, securing my interest until the revealing of his identity. Numerous clues are revealed and as I've mentioned previously, I have a hunch who he may be...time will tell. Until then, I'll remain invested in the narrative and characters until the investigation into this enigmatic villain is solved.

If you love romantic suspense, I highly recommend this series by Tara Thomas. The intriguing narrative is a well-balanced mix of suspense and a sexy romance. I'm not usually a fan of novellas, but in this case, it worked for me, reading them back to back. The positive aspect of this style of introduction to a new series? Spreading much content to allow readers like me to absorb and understand who all the players are without feeling overwhelmed. I can't wait to dive into the next full-length instalment.

New Release Spotlight: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

A Princess In Theory by Alyssa Cole
Series Reluctant Royals
Genre Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher Avon Books
Publication Date February 27, 2018

From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .

Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise.

Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of his crown.

The chemistry between them is instant and irresistible, and flirty friendship quickly evolves into passionate nights. But when the truth is revealed, can a princess in theory become a princess ever after?

I need to tell you,” Prince Thabiso said between kisses, “who I am.”
Who I really am, he added silently.
I know who you are,” Ledi said. She pulled off her t- shirt, revealing a soft, worn-looking gray bra cupping her silky brown breasts. “You’re the guy who learned to cook for me. The guy who’s made me laugh harder than I have in a long time. The guy who— ” She whispered the rest in his ear.
He chuckled and ran a fingertip over the lace that edged her bra. “I love that you speak so freely.”
Only with you. I feel like my entire life has been me trying to keep everything to-gether, but right now I want to fall apart.”
He could see the want in her eyes. “I must tell you something, Ledi.”
But how could he?
