Yet, at age fifteen, the head of his brigade deems Erik weak and murders his surrogate mother, fueling him to live for only one thing—revenge. Now closer than ever to the vengeance he seeks, Erik will allow no one to stand in his way.

Nicki Nobles fought her way out of a life where survival was key. Now strong and independent, she refuses to let her past dictate her future.

After Nicki helps him gather information on his nemesis, Erik is forced to work with her again. Fearing for her safety while fighting an attraction to her, Erik would prefer to keep Nicki out of his life.

Seeing so much of herself in the broken man, Nicki agrees to Erik’s plan only to discover she’s falling for someone who will never believe she can be more than her past.

As Erik’s plan unfolds, he must learn to rely on Nicki and realize that families aren’t always bound by blood and that trusting another doesn’t make you weak.

#review – Boiling Point, Feverish Book 1.5 by Jade C. Jamison @JadeCJamison

Boiling Point (Feverish, #1.5)

Pathetic.
Needy.
Untrusting.

Emily Brinkman hears all these descriptions in her head, all the things she knows others are thinking when she joins her boyfriend, Clay “Jet” Smith, on tour with his band. It doesn’t matter that she’s going as his PA as well; she knows she’s being judged…but she also knows that the people watching are half right.

Hot.
Tight.
Fine.

Clay can hear what all the men around him think of his sweet girlfriend and he loves having Emily join him on tour. To this woman, he’s not just a one-dimensional axe-slinging guitar god. She loves him and wants the best for him, and she won’t tell him something just because it’s what he wants to hear. But Clay didn’t stop to realize that all the guys on tour–from the roadies to security and even their frontman–would appreciate that Emily is a nice piece of ass. He will need to learn to trust her if their relationship is going to survive.

Will Clay and Emily survive the bumps on the road or will their time on tour drive them apart?

Feverish #1.5 kicks off the new Feverish series, a spinoff from Jade C. Jamison’s bestselling Bullet series.

Oh Clay…Sigh…but HELLO Jet!!  It’s been a looong time since we hooked up. *wiggles eyebrows and whispers* Don’t tell Melinda or Daddy Brad…M’Kay???

So our party boy/Wild Man has settled down with sweet little PA, Emily.  All is good in their little world but now the REAL World comes crashing down on them. Jet has to go on tour.  Emily is a wreck because she is listening to one of the band members girlfriends spew trash about the life of dating a rocker.  Clay is acting more and more like Jet to Emily’s liking plus the roadies treat her like crap.  Jet can’t handle his own insecurities about Emily’s love.  Is it because he is a rocker with bundles of money or does she really love Clay and his sweet sensitive heart??

This book our couple goes through it all.  They are so excited to be together and keep their little “love cloud” a rolling that they start to let other people’s views and perceptions get in the way of their happiness.

I loved Emily realizing that Jet’s attitude isn’t so bad when you need to get stuff done.  I also loved how Clay felt real pride in his woman when he realized she was much respected in her line of work.  If only the two can talk and not just sweep things under the carpet until the bomb goes off……

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.

You have no idea how excited I was to get more of Jet/Clay. You see I have loved him the most out of all the Bullet series guys since jump. I wasn’t sure how Boiling Point could top Feverish with Clay and Emily but she did it and I fell more in love with Clay/Jet and Emily.

The time has come for the band to go on tour and Emily is going because she is Clay’s P.A. She has her insecurities tested while on the road. Between the treatment from the road crew, being on the bus with all the guys, seeing all the girls come and go, and then there is Debbie that keeps talking about all the horrible tour life things sure doesn’t help with all her insecurities.

Clay has been burned before by a love and now he is caught in his head thinking maybe Emily is like his ex. Both feel the disconnect but because of their pasts are having difficult time overcoming it and talking to each other instead of keeping it bottled up waiting for the top to explode. Jet is able to toss that brick wall up and move on but sweet Clay struggles with what he thinks is going on. Can Clay and Emily survive life on the road or will what they have fizzle out before it really gets started?

This is a great quick read and continuation of Feverish being able to see into life on the road and to see the tribulations they go through. I enjoyed Emily and her way of dealing with what is going on during the tour. I loved seeing Clay’s sweet insecure side and then seeing Clay’s alter ego side Jet come out to play. I’m so excited for this series to get to know the other band members and of course to see more of my Clay/Jet. *swoon* Clay/Jet I still love them equally from the sweet caring Clay to the down and dirty Jet I cannot get enough of them.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2017
Blurb
I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the
world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.
I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.
What was I supposed to do when he walked
into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.
But, he doesn’t recognize me.
How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for
a one-night stand.
At least it sounded like a good idea at the time.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
WOW Just WOW this story is one I will remember for a while to come. Mari was the “music geek” in school and Cole was the “jock” need I say more. Throughout this book we see how Mari was treated and picked on in high school. However, Mari is strong and with the help of her best friend she is able to be herself despite her insecurities.
Mari had things going her way she was the lead singer of a band and they were rising fast. But one night her past was sitting next to her at the bar. How does one deal with the past especially one that caused you so much pain?
Cole was on his way to the NFL when an injury changed his path. Now he is a coach and a very good one at the high school in town. Now having to face his past mistakes and dealing with the high school kids issues he can see things in a new light.
I admire Mari not everyone could forgive but over time she was able to and dropped her walls. Mari learns quick that dropping walls will expose your heart. Can Mari and Cole get over the past and make things work or will the past end them?
I loved the relationship that Mari and the band members have. Their protective nature over her was heart warming especially her BFF Sawyer. Cole was so sweet with the way he tried to win Mari over. This series has me hooked and I cannot wait for more.
A few of my favorites from the book:
I bent my head and devoured her lips like I needed her to survive.
I peeked over my shoulder at the man who’d captured my heart with a guitar and a sweet smile.
For a brief period in my life, I’d thought losing my change in the NFL was the end of the world.  How wrong was I? I’d had no idea that losing the woman in front of me would hurt a hundred times more. There would never be another Mari.

Release Date: September 14, 2017

 

Vengeance: punishment inflicted or retribution exacted for an injury or wrong.

Austyn Cruz’s life has been turned on its axis. She’s done with sitting on the sidelines while those around her deal with her problems. 

Growing up in the Ravage MC, there’s always been someone at her back. Now it’s time for her to deal with her problems on her own. That is, until the guy she’s lusted over and loved for more years than she can count decides to claim her.

Only, it’s too late. He’s too late. Everything has changed.

Ryker James lives by one rule: live free. His past does not define him, but it does decide to give him a wakeup call after years of lying dormant. It’s time to face his demon and make sure, once and for all, it never comes back into his life. All the while protecting the one and only he’s loved for longer than he should. 

Two people tied together by their pasts. Two people searching for vengeance. Will the retribution they seek tear them apart, or bring them together? In the end, justice will be served … the Ravage MC way. 


** Bound by Vengeance (Ravage MC Bound Series Book Three) is a standalone full-length novel. You do not have to read the Ravage MC series nor Bound Series to follow this book, but if you’d like to see where it all started, you really should. **

I received a copy from the author for an honest review.

Sweet Baby Jesus this book!!  I have been dying to read this story and when I got it I was mad as a hornet that I had to wait a day to actually open it.

Austyn and Ryker, man their story was something.  I knew Ryan would do it justice but I was so blown away by everything.  The backstory for Ryker was so crazy.  I hate to say it but all that happened to him made him the man he is today.  The man who finally manned up to go after the woman he loves.

Austyn has loved Ryker since forever.  But being who her mom and dad are, she was totally not even to be looked at that way.  Dude Princess is her mom and we all know she is crazy…good crazy but crazy still!!

Austyn and Ryker are thrown together since he is her bodyguard to figure out what is going on after everything that happened to her.  Austyn is totally not going to let her emotions get in the way and she channels her mom for some strength and grit.  However, it’s too late because Ryker is there to claim his woman once and form damn all!!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh baby!!  This book did not let me down.  Micah our sweet, nerdy, virgin shifter finds his mate in the druggie stripper turned prostitute after a night out with his brothers!!  So yeah not really the girl to bring home to mom especially when you’re the momma’s boy!!

Micah and Eve are a great combo.  Both have never felt the love of a significant other. Eve only knows heart ache by people where Micah only knows the love of his family…granted overbearing family but still family.

When the couple are thrown together and Micah agrees to step foot into the ring to save her, the couple have A LOT to learn a about each other.  I felt a little bad for Eve because no one liked her buuut can you blame them when they see her track marks????  Yeah exactly.  I did like that Meg put her in her place and informed her that she is family whether she wants to be or not so get over it.  The brothers all pitch in to help Micah get ready for his fight and start to show Eve what family is all about.  I think I loved Caleb a little bit more for his encouragement with Eve.

There is a lot of stuff happening in this book…new bag guys and maybe even more bad guys on top of the first group.  Dealing with Eve’s ex “employer”, Momma’s special necklace and a brother with a secret mate/lover perhaps????

I am super excited for the next book ad have my fingers crossed for the secret lover storyline that was touched on a couple times in the book!!!

#Review – Feverish, Feverish Series Book 1 & Bullet Series Book 3 by Jade C. Jamison @JadeCJamison

Clayton “Jet” Smith has enjoyed acting the part of rock star god bad boy since his breakup with rock goddess Valerie Quinn. He’s racking up quite a score playing the field, and he has no plans to settle down anytime soon. His biggest problem these days is meeting his obligations, because he’s so busy having fun, he forgets the important things.To help him out, he hires recent graduate Emily Brinkman to be his personal assistant, and he quickly finds a fire burning in his belly for her. There are two problems, however. The first is that Emily is engaged to be married, a fact that leaves Jet unfazed. The second problem isn’t so easy to surmount, though. Emily is disgusted and unimpressed by both sides of the man.

Will Clay find a way to persuade Emily to try him out, not just for one night, but for all time?

Feverish moves the Bullet story forward. You don’t want to miss this one!

 

 

I received this book by the author for an honest review.
First off I have to say I fell in love with Clay/Jet from the first time we were introduced to him in Bullet. There was something about him that just stole my heart.  I have been waiting for his story ever since.  My fellow TT blogger girls have their own favorites but I’m not too happy to hear them tell me if their guy messes up they are running to Clay/Jet….NOT COOL ladies NOT COOL.  
Clay is the kind hearted wants to help you if he can kind of guy.  In order to protect his heart, that has been torn to shreds on occasion, has Jet who is his bad ass don’t care what you think kind of guy.  Emily was just graduating with her masters in business and wanted to find a job little did she know it was going to be getting a rock star organized.  I loved seeing how Clay and Mary, his housekeeper, interacted one of my favorite quotes from her was when he decided he needed to hire a PA and he assumed she would be doing the interviews and hiring her response:
                “NO, tonto. You’ll do the interviews.”
I could just see the look on his face, the look of really she isn’t
going to do this for me I’m going to have to.
Emily was engaged to one of the biggest DB around.  You will see for yourself the hotel scene had me fighting mad right along with Emily.
If I could have jumped into a book and took someone out it would have been him.  After it all went down this is what Clay had to say:
                “That guy has no idea how to treat a lady.”
How can you not love a guy like that? I love that Clay can be all
heartfelt and loving one second and then unleash Jet and be well JET the next.  Just read and you will see.  From there Wow did things heat up!  Jet did not disappoint that is for sure.
Can I say I knew he was in love with Val in Bullet but I had no idea he
was that in love with her.  I wanted to crawl in to the book and curl up next to Clay when he laid his heart on the line and told Emily his story about his past loves. Here is one of my favorite realizations that Emily came to:
“her blood hadn’t boiled with him (Bryce). The hair on her arms hadn’t  even stood on end, hoping to feel
his touch.  Hell, she hadn’t dampened
many panties with the guy even; Clay, on the other hand, had infected her with
deep desire, and she couldn’t deny it.”
I loved the fact that Clay tried to bring Jet forward to protect
himself but somehow Clay always came thru.  He couldn’t fool Emily, her dad, or Mary for that matter they always seem to see what was going on.  Just proves my initial thought of Clay/Jet was right on.  Y’all can have your Daddy Brad, Ethan, and whoever else but I will stick with my Clay/Jet no matter what.  He is a kind loving sole with the a little bad boy in him, I get the best of both worlds.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This book is Austyn Cruz and Ryker’s story. We get a glimpse of Austyn’s back story in Bound by Desire but wow we get so much more in this one. I did enjoy watching Ryker hold back his wants and desires to help Austyn once he made his mind up with what he wanted.

Austyn has had a hard crush on Ryker since the day he came to the club. Only problem she was a child and he was 18. Therefore, Austyn was firmly placed in the kid friend zone. Ryker never saw her the way she saw him even when she made it clear to everyone. There is a turning point when a girl realizes it will never be and Austyn has hit that point.

I was stunned to find out Ryker’s past and let’s say it was a whole lot of wacked out craziness. However, Ryker’s loyalty to family really shines through. Ryker is loyal, determined and protective. Once he realizes what Austyn means to him he is determined to help her get past her demons. Although Austyn wants things to get back to normal she finds she has a live in body guard. Ryker is assigned to stay at her and Emery new apartment and be by her side 24/7.

Austyn shows she is Cruz and Princess daughter with her strength, determination and perseverance. She is a fighter she will keep getting up and swinging no matter what is thrown her way. Ryker was able to give Austyn space and then push her when she needed it. His patients and determination to help her and make her see what she meant to him was a delicate balance that he pulled off in a grand way.

I loved seeing the Ravage MC kids all growing up and starting their own lives. I cannot wait for Emery’s book to find out who she will choose.

A few of my favorites:

Life decided to throw me curveballs. It decided to kick me in the teeth while I was down. It decided to do it again, repeatedly, not letting up, holding me down.

This is far from over, my beautiful woman. No, Austyn Cruz, this is just the beginning.

I wish I could just disappear sometimes and not be an adult. Forget having to make decisions and thinking. Just be free again to think the world is perfect and the bad stuff will never touch me. That’ll never happen again. Adulating sucks.

YOWZERS!! Mark!! I mean who knew you had this hot, brooding side to ya? Not me that is for sure. When we meet Mark in the series you can see he is “content” with Amber buuuuut let just say things at home weren’t always happy. This couple has been through a lot but they are just at a standstill. Both Mark and Amber know things are not right soooo let’s get married to fix it….epic fail of an idea right.
Toni had always felt she needed to prove herself because she is a good cop but a woman…the dang boys club can be tough at times. She is partnered with Mark and they have this SPARK but because Mark is taken PLUS you can’t date your partner at work, he is off limits.
When Amber and Mark’s circumstances change, there is nothing to stop Mark and Toni from this insane chemistry between the two of them. They both had issues and insecurities from their past life experiences. Mark doesn’t want to change for anyone and neither does Toni. They both love their job on the force but dating means someone had to make changes in their career. Is the relationship they are just starting worth it?? The past does cause some trouble for the couple and stubborn people are made to open their eyes before they lose the one person who truly gets them.
I am shocked to say that Mark MAY have kicked Jase to 3rd place for my affections. Sorry but Mason is firmly secure at the top of list for this series but Mark…..you naught dawg!! Toni is such a strong and sassy female. I loved how she would push Mark and make sure he knew that she was just as much in control as he was.
The epilogue sets us up for Mason’s sister Jenni to have a book. I am excited to read it but can already tell it will be an emotional one with the subject matter of her story!!
