February just flew by, and I am so ready for Spring! While it’s not here just yet, these binge-worthy romances were great to snuggle up with and might be just what you’re looking for!
~ All the King’s Men Duet by Kennedy Ryan ~
Release Date ~ October 25, 2019
I’m a wolf in wolf’s clothing, and I’ll consume her if she lets me.
Ambition. Passion. Betrayal.
Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.
In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.
I’ve only heard wonderful things about Kennedy Ryan’s writing, and I’m so glad I finally gave her a go – the All the King’s Men Duet did not disappoint!
Maxim and Lennix’s characters had so much depth and strength, and their romance throughout the years really tugged at my heartstrings. I loved the corporate business and political storyline, and it was clear that Ryan did extensive research with these as well as Lennix’s Native American history. This duet was a totally unique and emotional read with twists that I couldn’t see coming, and I’m really looking forward to more reads by this truly talented author!
~ Brayshaw Series #1 – #3 by Meagan Brandy ~
Release Date ~ January 15, 2019
“Girls like you aren’t exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way.”
Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for “troubled teens”.
I didn’t listen, and now I’m on their radar.
They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they’ve deemed me fit.
Too bad for them, I don’t follow rules.
Too bad for me, they’re determined to make sure I do.
Inconceivably attractive and treated like kings…these are the boys of Brayshaw High.
And I’m the girl who got in their way.
I completely devoured the whole Brayshaw High Series by Meagan Brandy! Since these are my first reads by her, I can’t say enough at how I’m impressed with her writing in this complex story with its well-developed and intriguing characters. These were completely unputdownable reads and a rollercoaster of a ride – I actually can’t recall the last time I’ve finished a series and felt this exhausted… lol!
~ The Regret Duet by Aly Martinez ~
Release Date ~ May 23, 2019
Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.
By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.
When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.
But that was where my fairytale ended.
Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.
At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.
I owed Caven my life.
However, I owed that innocent child more.
And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.
Written with Regret and Written with You are my first samplings of Aly Martinez’s writing, and I totally flew through this duet!
Written with Regret was fantastic with so many layers to both the characters and the story. Caven and Hadley’s passion combined with the mystery with Hadley’s sister Willow really pulled me in, and I especially loved Caven’s adorable relationship with his little Rosie Posie. AND then there was the ending!!! What??? I needed answers!
So here’s why The Regret Duet totally won me over… Have you ever read a book by a new author and were quite wowed with the first book, so you immediately jumped into the next? Then about halfway through it, you’re just good thinking la-ti-da and that you know what’s going to happen… Well, all I can say is that Written with You proved me totally wrong. Geez, I didn’t even see it coming!
I’ll end my review right here because I don’t want to give anything else away, but I absolutely loved this suspenseful and romantic duet and can’t wait to dive into more reads by Aly Martinez!
~ White Monarch Series 1-3 by Jessica Hawkins ~
Release Date ~ March 18, 2019
In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s between brothers. And I’m the prize.
I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves. Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I’m prepared to trade for my freedom. I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants. Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother’s arms.
“She is mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, future, and love I don’t get to choose.
I’ve found yet another new author to enjoy! The White Monarch Series by Jessica Hawkins was such a suspenseful romance ride, and she did a fantastic job of pulling me into the gritty world of the Mexican cartels. The whole series was the slowest of the slow burns (maybe a bit too much?) but oh-so-passionate, and the cliffhangers left me scrambling to grab the next. I’m so glad that I waited until the whole series was released and am looking forward to reading more by Hawkins!

I’m such a series girl so thanks for this, DG💜 There’s nothing like a good series binge read!
Me too, and I hope you try out a few. Duets and stand-alone series are really my favorites- that way I can’t take little breaks in between. Otherwise, I wouldn’t ever get anything done haha! 😆
I don’t even know where to start! One, you HAVE to go back and read the entire Grip series by Ryan. If you liked this duet, you will love that one. I know you will! Two, I read that Brandy series. That last book kind of ruined things for me, but it was pretty good otherwise. I did LOVE her newest book Fake It Til You Break It. I thought it was better than the series. Three, I haven’t read the other two authors yet. I should give them a try! Great reviews!
Thank you! I do want to read the Grip Series, and I still need to read the Long Shot (Hoops?) Series too! Yes, the third book in the Brandy series was a kind of over the top I felt, but I’ll check out her new one then. I hope you’ll check out Aly Martinez for sure – that duet totally surprised me and it was SO good!
You have read all these Daisy??? WOW!
I did, but not all in February. It’s more of my catching up – I am such a binge reader when I get in a duet or series and then fall behind on getting my reviews out. I know… bad, bad book blogger lol! 😂
