Over the last month or so I have been in both a reading and blog slump but that doesn't mean I stopped buying books. Here is all the books I have brought or received in the last month!

*London Mob Trilogy by Michelle St James - Already released - Brought Trilogy box set on Amazon kindle.

*Mob Boss Trilogy by Michelle St James- Already released -Brought Trilogy box set on Amazon Kindle

I am loving mafia style romance stories lately they have really got me out of my slump but it's all I want to read. I found Michelle St James in a Facebook group am part of and have really been loving her books. I read the London Mob Trilogy and give it 4 stars and I am currently reading the first book in the Mob Boss Trilogy. I will say each trilogy is a story on its own and can be read on its own however characters and story ArCs from other trilogy's are mentioned a little though out other trilogy's so I reccommend you start with the books in publication order.
