New Release ~ 4 Stars for Tap Left by A. Zavarelli

Title: Tap Left
Author: A. Zavarelli 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: November 2, 2017
Former hot mess seeking dysfunctional relationship single, well-together male. Sanity preferable.

From now on, I’m going to do everything right. I’m going to make good choices. Say goodbye to the bad boys, narcissists, and emotionally unavailable men. Because starting today, I’m a girl on a mission. 

Find a man to walk me down that aisle. 

It’s a good solid plan, but there’s only one tiny hiccup. 

Adrian Daire. 

I’ve asked for his help because if anyone can make me marketable, it’s him. 

Only problem? 

He’s also one of the aforementioned emotionally unavailable bad boys/ narcissists. Oh, yeah and he slightly crushed my soul once before. But no biggie. I’ve got three whole weeks to exorcise him from my head and my heart… for good.

My Review

4 Stars!

Tap Left is an sizzling, erotic story of love and hate.

A. Zavarelli excels at writing dark romances. Tap Left isn’t really dark, more like shadowed. There is a lot of heavniess to Daire and Lola’s story. They have history and it isn’t pleasant. Daire is dark and broody, while Lola is his complete opposite with an eclectic style and flightiness. However, their pasts are intertwined. They have to do a lot of work in their relationship and it makes for quite the interesting story. Their back story is hinted at, but things aren’t revealed until much later in the book, allowing us to get well acquainted to the characters. I will admit, I did not like Daire until nearly 3/4 of the way through the book. He has a definite pivotal moment. Lola, was a different story. She was likable and her vulnerability was endearing, but it is when she finally finds her voice that you will love her.

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.

But then he took me.

And he taught me that life isn’t a fairytale.

He is scarred. Broken.

A dark and wild thing.

His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.

His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.

He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

He’s destroyed my life.

Tortured me.

And worse…

He’s trained me to beg for his affection.

This prison is a place where sunlight doesn’t reach.

He taught me that hate is born in darkness.

And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

**This is a DARK mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.**

My Review:

4/5 Stars!!!

Deliciously dark, this story of two very broken people who find what they need in each other. Ghost is a dark tale of love and trust in a most unconventional way.

Talia has been sold into slavery and she is clinging to her last bit of hope when she is unexpectedly “rescued” by Alexei, a high-ranking member of the Russian mafia. His rescue is not as it seems and life is only minimally better for Talia.

Talia and Alexei are very complex characters with miserable pasts. Alexei is powerful, but is bound by a secret that could destroy him. He is dark and angry and controlling, but he is gentle with Talia. He does not trust, though. Talia is broken both mentally and physically. She also cannot trust. They push and fight and goad each other, but under the surface, this palpable current of emotion slowly meanders along like a quiet hum.

A. Zavarelli has woven a dark tale that will keep you in suspense, pull at your emotions and have you rooting for these two to find the love they so deserve with each other. A page turner and a must read!
