Tripp Wilder is more than a friend…

..but Ember Stevens is determined not to make him a boyfriend. After a bad breakup, she prefers the sex without the strings and who better to teach her about NSA relationships than her love ’em and leave ’em neighbor, Tripp?

It’s the best of both worlds. She gets all the fun aspects of a relationship–the sex, the cuddling, the secrets in the dark–without all the obligations and resentment that go along with it.

Ember Stevens is everything he wants…

…but can’t have. Tripp lost his chance at a relationship with Ember years ago and has settled for being her BFF ever since. Now that she’s on the market again, he refuses to let his second chance with her pass him by.

Except she’s not interested in commitment.

Stuck between a rock and a hard-on, Tripp agrees to show Ember how to navigate the world of casual sex, but he’s determined to convince her that nothing can go wrong when a friendship comes with a guaranteed happy ending.

Review:

For readers, especially romance lovers like me, there are certain characters in a particular story that you know from the get-go that they’re meant to be. That’s what it was like for me while I was reading Friends with Benefits. Tripp and Ember were meant to be together. I knew that from the first pages of reading their story.

I love Ember’s grit and enduring sacrifice for her family. Her unconditional love for her little twin sisters is something that’s truly awe-inspiring. Despite her emotional baggage and unavailability, she has found solace with Tripp.

I have been intrigued by this pair ever since I caught a glimpse of them in the first two Friend Zone books. And I must say that the wait was totally worth it! I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.

I loved their easy and effortless friendship. When it shifted into something more, I just couldn’t help but root for their love. Like I said, it’s one of those stories when you just know that these two characters are meant to be.

Being a gypsy means going into an arranged marriage.
My siblings fought against it, but not me.
Having a woman who was raised to be a wife, a mother, and warm body for me to sink into? Sounded good to me.

Unfortunately, my new wife is not what I was expected.
She’s mouthy, bratty, and gets on my last nerve.
But I’m no quitter and I’m not afraid to put in the work.

So, I romanced my wife. I gave her time and space. I had patience.
I realized she was fighting a much bigger battle than I had even known.
She’s spent her life being told she’s evil and cursed.

That’s not who she is.
She’s beautiful, smart, and has big dreams.
She’s more than a bride to be sold off. More than a prize to be won.
Now, more than ever, I’m determined to be her champion.

The only thing she wants is freedom.
And now that she has it, will she choose me?

Review:

After reading this book, I immediately went out to pick out the rest of the series because this one was just so good. I was so intrigued by the other characters from these series that I couldn’t help but read the rest.

Freedom and Essie are one of those old souls that were just destined to be together. The growth of their relationship was just awe-inspiring. Their marriage became a partnership and seeing how it grew into that was really so special to read.

I normally don’t like the modern-day arranged marriage troupe but I take a special exemption on this one because it just works. I loved Essie’s fiery spirit and Freedom’s passion. These are two people who were meant to be together but didn’t realize that they really were in it for the long haul.

Overall, this is one great summer read for the true romantic. I can’t wait to read another story from this series! I hope Misty Walker will come up with more.

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: June 8, 2020
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance, Standalone

Everything comes with a price.

Kolya Boykov isn’t afraid to die—he’s already been dead for a long time.

All it takes is one look at her from across the bar, and Kolya comes to life again. She’s fragile and beautiful and caged. Taking her was the last thing he should have done, but he’s never wanted anything like he wants Maya. As the son of a Bratva boss, no one can stop him from having her.

Maya Kozlov wishes she was invisible—mistreated and unloved, they never let her forget it.

All it takes is a few words from him, and Maya’s life is turned upside down all over again. He’s cold and harsh and terrifying. She should have run the first chance she could, but that’s the thing about Kolya; he makes her want to stay. As the unwanted daughter of a dead man, she just wants to be happy.

There’s only one problem. It’s more than just Kolya who wants to keep Maya forever. Family, legacy, and the mafia … nothing will stand in their way.

The cost of this betrayal is high.
What will be the price?

Review:

Fractured Ties by Bethany-Kris is one action-packed standalone that will leave you wanting for more. Kolya Boykov is the kind of bad guy that you’ll grow to love. It was one intense insta-love when he met Maya and the contrast between the way he treats her versus the world just made me instantly swoon.

This book was intense and gruesome but romantic and passionate at the same time. I liked how Bethany-Kris portrayed a darker side of the Bratva with this one. The story had a complex plot with numerous twists and turns that will definitely leave you wanting for more.

I especially adored the part where Kolya was torn with his inner struggle as he is coming into terms with his feelings for Maya. Another great character that I loved in Fractured Ties is Kolya’s brother, Konstantin. I loved his loyalty and his comedic affable self. The brothers have great banter with each other and both characters complement each other well.

I can’t wait for the next installment of the book from the Seasons of Betrayal universe. It will definitely be another fun and exhilarating read!
