*This is a dark erotic romance with a psychological twist*
Prick is a prequel in preparation for the upcoming first full-length book, Puppet by author Londyn Quinn. This novelette is the back story of the characters Xander and Charlotte.
It’s challenging to review a snapshot story which this is — I estimate that the prequel might cover all of three or so hours of story events and it is easy to find issues when the characters have no time to develop. I was WTFing Xander and then talked myself off the ledge because I was judging him after reading no more than maybe twenty pages of his pre-story.
Safe to say that this is something that fans of Amo Jones’ Elite Kings, Tijan’s Carter Reed, or Shantel Tessier’s Dare series might want to check out. Prick is short, don’t expect more than a nibble–the meal will be the next book, Puppet.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.

These are just fun questions, don’t think too hard on them; there are no wrong answers!
Ali: You can only read one book for the rest of your life, what is it? Patty: Letters to the Lost.
Ali: Would you rather have a house made out of books, or have a book in which you could crawl inside and live? Patty: House of books. Endless adventures.
Ali: Would you rather buy books from a brick and mortar bookstores, or online stores? Patty: Brick and mortar. I like to feel, and smell, and have the experience.
Ali: What book is something you think you probably should have read already but haven’t? Patty: The Diviners.
Ali: Name a book have you read that was not worthy of the hype? Patty: Caravel. What rubbish!
Ali: Is there any book you feel was far worse as a book than it was as a movie or tv show. Patty: Hmm…far worse? Miss Peregrine’s. The movie was great but the book was slow and boring.
Ali: Favorite book quote? Patty: Don’t have one really..
Ali: You can give a shout out to any person, real or fictional, who is it, and what do you want them to know. Patty: To the person who decided not to film the conclusion of the Divergent movies…talk about heartbreak! How could you devastate me like that? At least finish what you started.
Title: Beautifully Broken Author: Bailey B. Genre: NA Contemporary My rating:3 of 5 stars
Piper Lovelace is a hot mess. Life is bad enough, the rumors are vicious, and the bullies are far worse. When you can’t beat them, the only thing you can do is join them.
Of course, I wouldn’t do that, and I don’t think it’s advisable to slap a scarlet letter on one’s chest and claim harlot-dom, but I’m not Piper.
Bailey B.’s first book deals with a lot of trigger topics, the least of which is rape–and that is saying something. Piper’s dealing with a lot of psychological trauma, and what complicates it further is she resists help. It’s common for traumatized people to twist what happens to them and who they are into one mess in their heads. Beautifully Broken frames this psychology honestly.
Title: Destroyed (Omega’s Destruction #3) Author: Eva Dresden Genre: Dark Romance, Omegaverse Release Date: February 13, 2020
Broken and damaged, Quinn refuses to be destroyed.
She rages against the bond Tobias Kahler forced her to complete between them, denying the pull of her claim set into his soul that fateful day. Struggling against the power of his will, she won’t become the smiling, placid thing he attempts to mold her to be.
An unseen foe seeks to take matters into their own hands, threatening Quinn and everything she holds dear. Forced to cling to Tobias for support and strength with the constant threat, he’s thrown into a whole new light. One where Quinn faces seeing him for more than the monster she’s feared and hated.
Amidst their violent past and ever turbulent future, they must learn to accept one another as they are or in this final battle, much more than bodies will lay broken.
Destroyed is the third and final book in the Omega’s Destruction Trilogy, a raw and thrilling Omegaverse tale. It is not a traditional romance, containing dark themes and complete power exchange. Scenes are not glossed over, which may be distressing for some readers.
