Ruthless. 
Arrogant. 
Dangerous. 
Sexy as sin. 



Deacon King is the devil and I’m unknowingly about to be his latest dance partner.

We are connected in a way I never could have imagined and he’s set on making me pay for a life I had no control over. 



Everyone thinks I’m a Park Lane Princess, but there’s much more to me than meets the eye, and I will not cower down to Mr. King no matter how hard he tries to break me.

Book Review- Blossom In Winter By Melanie Martins.

Book Review – Blossom In Winter by Melanie Martins.

I thought this was a fantastic dark, romance read… in the beginning. However, I felt it inconsistent and slow. The characters needed more development and so did the story, in my opinion. It’s classed as a romantic thriller so I was waiting for something to happen with maybe her best friend Emma, seeing as she liked to torture a boy or 2, but no. Or maybe there’d be some stand-off between her and Alex (the love interest) for Petra’s affections as it’s later revealed Emma seems to have feelings for her, but no. Instead, apart from at the beginning, Emma’s scenes are fleeting. I don’t even understand why Petra was best friends with her as she was a horrible person!

I couldn’t quite believe the relationship between Petra and Alex Van Dieren or that her dad came around to the idea of Petra dating and ultimately getting engaged to his best friend. The relationship just progressed too quickly!

It surprised me to find out quite late on in the book that Alex was a dom. Although it was hinted at that he had a dark sexual side and had a fetish/kink quite early on in the book, the author didn’t go into any detail until he mentioned about the girls that he had dom/sub relationships with. And this was only mentioned in passing in his narrative, it wasn’t a big revelation.

“If I recall properly, only my former subs used to beg me to f*ck their asses. Wow. I tremble at the thought that Petra might actually want to become one.” Page 388

That is well over half way through the story. There IS a contract drawn up but this is in relation to their relationship and the media (he’s a wall street businessman in his 40s, she’s just turned 18). Hmm I do wonder what a person living the sub/dom lifestyle would think to this book…
He never actually discusses this dom/sub lifestyle with her so he just comes across as controlling. Especially with him giving her rules such as not leaving the table without his permission and having to change into a nightgown when she does so. But also when he forces her to have sex with no warning at all just so he can selfishly get his rocks off! She had absolutely no idea what’s going on and is so confused and upset by it. Later, out of nowhere, Petra’s personality then changes and she goes on to be the dominatrix when she next sees him. I mean, I get her thought process, she wants to beat him at his own game and prove she’s not gonna be walked over BUT this isn’t explained. It’s just as though she’s turned into someone else. She’s also portrayed as naive yet mature but they don’t really go hand in hand and it was shocking to see her go from virgin to wanting to explore everything sexual within weeks of losing her virginity! Now, I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t wanna try anal so soon after having sex for the first time!

In the end I just really struggled with this book. The dialogue was cringey at time’s, especially during the sex scenes when Petra would say, “Ahhh…” instead of the author simply stating that she groaned/moaned. I was expecting more thriller alongside the romance but it left a lot to be desired and a lot of unanswered scenes and questions! Scenes which could have lead the book into a thriller but didn’t really take off. The sub genre is more taboo (age-gap plus he’s her godfather who brought her up like she was his own) than anything else.

this book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review

Book Review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May,

Book review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May.

Blurb:

1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!

Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.

But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?

My review:

What a book this is! It is so much more than a book about two cake making cousins running their own cake shop in the sixties, who may or may not find love! Sooo much more! For one, there’s time travel!! Which I thought was an awesome part of the book. What really spoke to me, though, was that it tackles the issues of how modern tech, like our phones, affects us today and how most of us just seem glued to our phones instead of engaging with the people and taking in the environment around us. In come Polly and Annabelle with their cake making skills who are sent forward in time to hopefully make people see how important it is to take a step back from their phones and really pay attention to those around them. It really hit home for me because I often think we should spend less time on phones, tablets, PCs etc. and more time with the ones we love! It’s a fabulous read and one I’ll cherish for a long time!

BLURB

I’ve gotten into my fair share of awkward situations…although, asking a random stranger to be my fake boyfriend is by far the worst. 

In my defense, it was an act of desperation. An act I hope will keep away the men in town who see me as their ticket to becoming the mayor’s son-in-law. 

But I have a plan.

1. Date my fake boyfriend long enough for the news to spread across town.
2. Have a very public breakup that leaves me too heartbroken to move on.
3. Continue living my happily single life. 

There’s only one problem…Harris wasn’t supposed to be the kind of man I’ve always wanted. 

There’s no denying the sparks that fly between us. Just when I’m about to give him my heart, he does the one thing I can’t forgive. 


Our breakup is public all right, and the heartbreak is real.

Meadowsweet Chronicles

Amazon Vs Hatchette

Ok, so I’ve been seeing a fair few blog posts about the whole Amazon Vs Hatchette debate. My 2 pennies worth? If Hatchette want to be greedy enough to charge those prices then let them, it’s their business after all. If people want to pay those prices then more fool them. Time will tell if it has hurt Hatchette’s pockets. What Amazon have to realise is that asking readers to boycott Hatchatte is also hurting the authors and that’s not fair.

Personally, I won’t be paying Hatchette’s prices. It’s a frigging ebook for crying out loud! It doesn’t cost anything to produce. All they have to do once it’s submitted is sit back and reap the rewards! At a push I’ll pay £3 for an ebook. At. A. Push. Usually the max I’ll pay is. £2. Because, like I say, it’s an ebook! It’s digital! It’s not physical! You can not hold it in your hands and feel the pages between your fingers, so I don’t feel it’s worth paying nearly the amount you’d pay for a paperback.

Anyhoo, that’s my 2 pennies worth.
