REVIEW BLITZ - Ruthless King (Mount Trilogy #1) by Meghan March

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March. 

New Orleans belongs to me. 
You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. 
My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. 
I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. 
She doesn’t know she caught my attention. 
She should’ve been more careful. 
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. 
It’s time to collect what I’m owed. 
Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. 

*Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy* 


Every time I get ready to read a Meghan March book, I know I'm going to get a fantastic story, whether it be something humorous (Dirty Billionaire Trilogy) or something emotional (Beneath Series). So I was properly excited to finally get my eyeballs on this first book in her new trilogy, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. It's safe to say this book has moved into my top 3 favorites by MM.

I knew from the synopsis I was going to be in for an entertaining read, but this actually surpassed what I was expecting. The story is pretty much straightforward, but there are a couple of twists thrown in. Not a lot of secondary characters, but the ones we meet do contribute to the story in some type of fashion. 

I love Keira's best friend Magnolia, that woman keeps it real, and I liked that Keira and she stayed best friends over the years, despite the differences in their lifestyles. Keira obviously has enough business smarts, but not quite so much in her personal life, hence the situation she finds herself in at the start of the book. I will say that there were a few times I wanted to shake some sense into Keira, her actions drove me bonkers at certain points. As for Mount, we do see how ruthless he can be, and there's a small tidbit thrown out in the story about what his life was like growing up, but other than that, we don't get to know much about him and I'm hoping we'll get more about him in the upcoming books.

With most books the main couple have good chemistry, but what we get with Keira and Mount is hovering somewhere around the nuclear level, it's that hot. The sexy times between them are explosive each time they happen!


That ending tho! The last two chapters took a hard left turn onto WTF Avenue and now I'm seriously marking off the days on a calendar until I can get the next part of this story!

Meghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She's also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she's ever had.

Tracie Delaney is the author of the Winning Ace trilogy. She loves nothing more than immersing herself in a good romance, although she sometimes, rather cheekily, makes her characters wait for their HEA.

When she isn’t writing or sitting around with her head stuck in a book, she can often be found watching The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones or any tennis match involving Roger Federer. Her greatest fear is running out of coffee.

Tracie studied accountancy, gaining her qualification in 2001. Her maths teacher would no doubt be stunned by this revelation considering Tracie could barely add two plus two at high school.

Tracie lives in the North West of England with her amazingly supportive husband. They both share a love of dogs, travel and wine.



About the Book:

Being bad never felt so good...

The office is full of rules. Everything is off-limits. Making a charity calendar of the sexy guys on your floor? Not allowed. Shrinking your boss' underwear when he sends it for dry-cleaning? Can't do that either.

But those things keep the natural balance. See, Avery Banks, our resident rising star, is a shark. The tall, blond, and gorgeous kind with zero patience and even less forgiveness.

Good thing I'm the Mae West of executive assistants. I live to put grown men in their place.

He wasn't supposed to find out...

Now he's made it his personal vendetta to screw me the way I screwed him. I'm at his beck and call, 24/7, for every humiliating, meaningless request.

Until we stumble on a new game. One we both want to play. One we both need to win.

And once we start...I'm not sure Avery wants to replace me.

I'm not sure I want him to.

All I want is more of this. The fire under the ice. What happens behind closed doors.

It's twisted, and so damn hot. But he's my boss. And with the company coming off a scandal even I couldn't engineer? What we're doing is strictly NSFW.

Lucky for me, Avery and I have one thing in common...

We both suck at following the rules.

This book is fun from start to finish! If you read the book PLAY, you already know just a bit about Charlie and Avery. If you haven't read it (and I do recommend it because it's a fun book), it's still easy enough to read this book even though some characters from that book appear here. If you've read PLAY, you already know some of the pranks Charlie has done to Avery.

One thing I liked about this book is that we're not subjected to witnessing the pranks Charlie pulled, but we do get glimpses of some of her stunts, and the repercussions of her actions. Some might say that Charlie seems immature, and that might possibly be true, but that behavior is only reserved for Avery. With everyone else she's a tried and true friend. She didn't have to take Rose (New Girl) under her wing, and she's always there for Payton. And I loved the relationship she has with her grandmother. Charlie is that type of person that people are drawn to; she may be unconventional at times, but she does know how to get stuff done.

I gotta say that Avery comes off as an ass for the first few chapters, but the more you read and get to know him, the more you see that under the hard exterior, is somehow yet another semi-solid exterior, with only an extremely select group of people who know the real him (and by extremely select group, I mean EXTREMELY lol). All Avery's worried about is the big picture, he doesn't take the time to see the details that come together to create the big pic, until Charlie becomes his assistant. The more time they're together, the more his viewpoints begin to change.

I will say that one issue for Charlie has to do with going back to her hometown; that was mentioned a few times in the story, yet we don't get to see how that actually played out until the epilogue, but at that point we just get told she went back home, so I would have liked to have seen that actual visit and how everything went down.

You'd think that now Avery's eyes have been opened it'd be smooth sailing for him and Charlie to be a couple right? Well, you'll just have to read to find out what happens for these two.

Meet the Author:

I love reading and writing stories where the girls aren’t doormats, the guys aren’t asshats, and secondary characters aren’t second-class citizens. A card-carrying millennial, I have two business degrees and zero hope of starting a fashion label (unlike my Travesty characters!). I crave quirk the way some people crave kink, and believe life is too short not to do what—and who—you love.

My home base near Toronto, Canada is shared with my wonderful sig other. He's the perfect man for me because not only is he tall dark & handsome, he will beta read for me under duress. And really, that's what love is. Beta reading under duress.

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Thrill of Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD #6) by Melissa Foster

Fate brings Ty and Aiyla together, but will tragedy tear them apart?

The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD #6
Melissa Foster
Releasing Oct 4, 2017
World Literary Press

Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his—and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn’t imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she’d worked so hard to create.

Months later fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.

If there's one author out there who knows how to bring her A-game with every book she writes, it's definitely Melissa Foster. She's written like what, 843 books so far? Maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but with each book she writes never feels like a repeat of an earlier story. And we certainly get another outstanding tale for Ty and Aiyla.

Without rehashing the synopsis, it's clear from the start of the book that there's something real between Ty and Aiyla, even if it'd been months since they'd seen each other. It would seem that the player had met The One in Aiyla back with they were in Switzerland, but his reputation preceded him enough that Aiyla wasn't looking to be one in a long line of females that had shared some adult time with Ty.

If you've read any Melissa Foster book, you know that while for the most part you get a straightforward love story, there's always something that happens to shake things up between the couple, and that's certainly no different for Aiyla and Ty, although this event certainly makes this an emotional journey, but oh so worth it (just make sure to have a couple of tissues close by). 

It was fate when they met in Switzerland, it was fate that brought them back together in Colorado, will fate be kind a third time for them? I won't say, but I can say with certainty this was one of my favorite Melissa Foster books to date.
