Confessions: The Princess, The Prick, and The Priest, a fun, flirty story in the Confessions Series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is coming November 13th!

Everyone said our love wouldn’t work.
That it was too hard, too complicated, too messy.
Oh how I enjoy proving everyone wrong.

My men are smart, sexy, sophisticated—
and most of all, crazy about me.
The only problem is trying to explain
that to my big, opinionated Italian family.

But after all we’ve been through, we deserve a
happily ever after. And if there’s one
thing I know about my guys, they always
manage to have a few surprises up their sleeves.

ARC REVIEW : Nova Praetorian by N.R. Walker


Quintus Furius Varus is one of the best lanistas in Rome. Tall and strong in build, fearsome in manner, and sharp of wit, he trains the best gladiators bound for the arenas of Rome. When Senator Servius Augendus seeks personal guards, he attends the Ludus Varus for purchase of the very best. He puts to Quintus an offer he cannot refuse, and Quintus finds himself in Neapolis, contracted as a trainer of guards instead of gladiators.

Kaeso Agorix was taken from his homelands of Iberia and delivered to Rome as a slave. Bought by a senator to be trained as a guard, his fate is handed to the man who would train him. Absent free will, Kaeso knows his life is no longer his own, though he soon realises the gods have favoured him when he learns his new master has a kind heart.

Quintus and Kaeso forge a bond that far exceeds the collar at Kaeso’s neck, and together they discover the senator’s move for promotion has an ulterior motive. Thrown into a world of politics and conspiracy, of keeping enemies close, they move against time to save Rome before traitors and the gods themselves see to their end.

And in doing so, see the dawn of the nova praetorian—the new guard—rise

Nova Praetorian by N.R. Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

...This book has a movie material I'll be happy to watch! I even clapped my hands when things got better after the crazy chaos!

Setting in Roman era, where people thirst of blood and power (something like 'today's world'), Quintus and Kaeso sealed their fate together.
It was painful how Quintus must obeyed everything Servius demand, especially when it actually against his will and his moral.
But then, things got bearable after the Iberian slave, Kaeso came into his life. Then the story was actually NR Walker at the sweetest.

" We stand in a room of politicians, Kaeso. The answer is easy. Trust none of them"

Kaeso was a slave, but Quintus was a slave to his desire for Kaeso, and Kaeso only.
Everything went well with the two of them for a while, until it's not. I dropped the book, debating myself to continue to read about the politics chaos or pause, and read it again in the morning. But then, I cannot sleep, and kept thinking about Quintus and Kaeso, and worried about what happened to them while I'm sleeping.

"...I just ask to see these days through to their end and still have you by my side"

You know the feeling, right? So I gathered my courage to finish the reading with worry in my face.
Things got ugly and when everything put back into pieces again, I found that I really wanted to clap my hands and cry! I saw this as a movie in my head, and I wish someday, some people out there, read this book and I'm sure Quintus and Kaeso's story will be one of the best.
Will Quintus and Kaeso got their HEA? This quotes answers ->

"...It matters not on which lands I stand when I stand beside you"

Nova Praetorian is a heartbreaking, breathtaking and beautiful love story between a soldier and a slave. Build of courage to fight for their love in one of the most difficult era in the world.
This story is another winner from N.R. Walker, and will stay with me for a very long time. Highly recommended!

Book Synopsis:
A new town, a new neighbor, and a new chance to build a forever.

Charlie King is doing fine. Sure, he’s a widower raising a teenage daughter who just got her first boyfriend, his book series isn’t writing itself, and he has a crush on his new neighbor — the guy next door. But everything’s just fine.

Simon Lynley is doing better. He moved to Bethlehem to fall out of love and rebuild his career. An affair with his neighbor isn’t part of the plan, but the attraction between them is too hard to ignore.
But when Simon’s ex follows him to Pennsylvania seeking reconciliation, and Charlie’s life starts to feel like a video on repeat, everything comes apart. Charlie worries that he’s failing as a father, and Simon is a distraction he can’t afford. Meanwhile Simon doesn’t know if he could survive being left again, and he hasn’t come all this way to make the same mistakes. But despite their fears, it’s only together that they’ll find the strength to slay old foes and build the forever they’ve been waiting for.

Kelly is the author of a number of novels, novellas and short stories, including the Chaos Station series, co-written with Jenn Burke.

Sometimes finding a happy ever after is all the adventure we need.

Building Forever (This Time Forever, #1)Building Forever by Kelly Jensen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm usually love this kind of story. A single dad with a teenage kid, a brokenhearted guy trying to build his life again after a hard break up. But there's something in the story that didn't fit with my mood at the time. I felt a little bored. I was thinking, there's too much telling.
I liked the sweetness of their relationship. But then, I didn't see a strong chemistry between the two main characters. And that's important.
This was an okay read, I think, but not really my cup of tea this time.
I can see that I'm a minority, so you'll probably enjoying this book like many others.
