#Review – Hyde’s Absolution (Sydney Storm MC #4) by Nina Levine

24655635

Possessive biker alert

Monroe Lee is a handful.
She fights me, challenges me and tries to resist me.

Where I’m jagged, she’s smooth.
Where I’m dark, she’s pure.
Where I’m broken, she’s whole.

I am not a good man.
I’ve hurt everyone I’ve ever loved.
I should walk away before I ruin her too.

But fuck, we are fire together.
And I’ve been out in the cold too long.

At a time when everything is falling down around me, she might just be my saviour.

This story contains all the panty-melting sexiness and alpha goodness that Nina Levine books are known for.

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

I have been so excited and waiting for Hyde’s story I knew it was going to be one heck of a ride. I mean come on with a road name like Hyde for none other than Jekyll/Hyde.

Hyde has intrigued me as the loner type but very devoted to his brothers. He has a past that he doesn’t talk about. It made him who he is like it or not. He did things he was not proud of and was torn from the ones he loved. However, he always took care of what his no matter what or how distant he seemed.

Monroe is giving up on love and then there is Hyde. Like a moth to a flame it is hard for Monroe to resist him and all his Bad Boy ways.  Monroe and Hyde fit together; they knew how to fight and how to love. When one was having a weak moment the other was there to be strong.

When the past came to the present they were there for each other.  Hyde needed a sassy strong woman and Monroe needed a hot alpha bad boy. There was more to this story than just Hyde and Monroe because WOW the club business is getting dicey.  I need to know what will happen next and I cannot wait for King.

A few of my favorites:

Why God? Why is the only man I want to sleep with a moody asshole?

There was just something about this man—something that drew me to him when all I wanted to do was run the other way. Snapping at him would hopefully keep him at arm’s length.

“Bree, baby, he’s the bad boy your mama will warn you about when you get a little older. Bad boys are okay to fool around with, but you don’t date them.” “So all your life you’ve dated the good guys? Is that working for you?”

#CoverReveal – Misguided (Fallen Aces MC book 5) by Max Henry

Title: Misguided
Series: Fallen Aces MC Book 5
Author: Max Henry
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2017

 

Only by losing my freedom, did I realize I was never free at all.

 


My father, the president of the Fallen Aces MC, sent me away to save me from a cold-blooded fate handed down by a tyrannical drug lord. Now, over a year later, my brother has come to take me home.

Only it doesn’t feel like home anymore.

I’m lost, wandering familiar yet foreign halls as I try to work out what my purpose is in this club. What can I offer the people who sacrificed so much to save me? I need a guiding light, something to get me on the right path. Or someone.

Someone like him.

A cocky, playful ladies man, Dog is nothing like what I thought I’d ever need. But as he strips the colors from his back, and reveals the true brilliance of the ones below, I can’t help but fall in love with the overbearing yet guarded man.

He’s guaranteed to break my heart, yet here I stand with it in my hands, offering him all I have left.

All that I am.

Maybe I’m not supposed to survive after all?

“Thanks, Mel.”
She shrugs, slinging a clean pair of black denim jeans over her arm. “I wouldn’t have achieved anything by lowering myself to your level, would I?”
Ouch. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
“It means,” she says slowly, turning to face me. “I could have gone downstairs, found some random guy to suck off, and tried to hurt you like you hurt me, but the truth is” —she sucks her lips to her teeth with a hiss— “I don’t think you would have cared.”
My nostrils flare, the look I give her so fucking pissed off that she frowns and places a foot to the side, ready to bolt.
“What?” She shrugs again, making me want to grab her by the shoulders and shake her until all the messed up shit in her head gets back to where it should be.
“Those lips of yours go anywhere near another man’s junk, I promise it won’t be pretty.”
I can’t even think straight when I look at her. All I see is the fuck-off eyes she’d be giving that asshole as she dropped to her knees. My fist curls, my forearm aching with the strain.
“My lips,” she snaps with a bit more sass than necessary, “can go wherever the fuck I please.” She frowns hard, doing that little head wiggle thing chicks do when they’re about to go off. “Why should the rules be different for me than they are for you?”
“What fuckin’ rules?” I ram my fist into the mattress to save from getting up and smashing it into the wall.
“You can suck some bitch downstairs, but I’m not allowed to—”
“Don’t fuckin’ say it again.” I hold a finger up, closing my eyes as I wince.
Her feet make soft padding noises as she hustles across the floor. Her breath is hot and minty over my face as she leans right in. I don’t dare open my eyes, don’t dare breathe her in too hard in case I snap.
“Suck. A. Dick,” she murmurs right in my face. “Choke on a cock. Let a man face-fu—”
My hand’s on her throat before I even fully open my eyes. “Don’t.”
She still glares at me; her fucking kissable lips an inch from mine. I screwed up, I get it, but it’s not as though I intended on hammering the fucking bitch after I was done. Shit, I don’t think I could have sported a fucking woody if I tried given how much I’d consumed.
There’s only one woman on my mind right now, and the feel of her pulse beneath my thumb tells me her heart races as hard as mine.

Max is the author of dark, and highly emotional romance. Her Butcher Boys series is centered around a group of ex-street kids who have teamed up with an indebted motorcycle club to take down a notorious drug lord. And her new series, the Fallen Aces MC, is a spin-off from this dark and dangerous world. Her writing has been described as ‘gripping’, and ‘addictive’, taking you on an ’emotional roller coaster ride’.

Originally born and bred in New Zealand, Max now resides with her family in beautiful and sunny Queensland, Australia. Life with two young children can be hectic at times, and although she may not write as often as she would like, Max wouldn’t change a thing. When she’s not engrossed in her dark and twisted fictional worlds, she can be found enjoying the outdoors while 4wd-ing with her family.

#CoverReveal – An Impossible World by S.P. Cervantes

An Impossible World
S.P. Cervantes
Published by: Amber Leaf Publishing
Publication date: July 25th 2017
Genres: Adult, Dystopian, Romance

What would happen if terrorism spread and hate took over? What would the world become?

Isabella (Belle) Grey trained her entire adult life to protect those around her––training that would prove invaluable in her quest to make a new life. Forced to live in an impossible world, terror was not only outside the walls of her protected community but also raged behind the walls of her very own home.

No longer willing to put up with her husband’s drunken abuse, Belle made the desperate decision to run away from the safety of her community and escaped alone into the broken world beyond.

Chased by death as bombs exploded in the distance, her next decision could not only save her life but could potentially bring light back into her darkened soul.

When faced with the impossible, Belle found strength in an unsuspecting stranger who set her path in a new direction––one she never considered.

Fear. Love. Revenge. Strength … all come together in this epic tale of fate and survival.

READ AN EXCERPT FROM HYDE’S ABSOLUTION

 

I tore my attention from Hyde and gave it back to Tatum when she said, “I’ll call you tomorrow.”

Hyde’s presence had pretty much wiped all coherent thought from my mind, so I simply nodded and murmured, “Okay.”

As she and Nitro walked away from us, Hyde moved closer. His scent almost hypnotised me, if that was even possible. Looking down at me, he said, “What are you drinking?” The husky tone of his voice was like the final nail in my coffin. He could lead me down the path to sin with that voice.

“A cosmo please.”

He turned to the waiting bartender and ordered drinks before shifting his gaze back to me. His body was so damn close it almost pressed against mine. His eyes dropped to my chest. “You weren’t made to be subtle, were you, sugar?”

“Can’t say that word’s in my vocabulary, no.” The way he was devouring my body told me I’d made the best decision when I bought the black dress I wore tonight. Knee length with a plunging neckline and accentuated with a belt around my waist, it clung to every curve I had. My girls were up and proudly out, just the way I liked them. I mean, if you had it, flaunt it, right? And I’d had the red in my hair touched up that afternoon. It hung in lazy vivid red curls to just below my breasts. I wasn’t sure which part of me he thought wasn’t subtle, but I guessed it had something to do with my dress by the way he seemed unable to draw his gaze from my body.

Finally he found his way back up to my face. The heat flashing in his eyes shot a round of lust through my veins. Good God, this man, though. I wondered if he had any idea of the storm he caused within me. “Don’t ever add it.” If what he said didn’t make my legs sway a little, the forceful, gravelly way he said it did.

The bartender placed our drinks on the counter, distracting us from each other. Hyde dropped some cash on the bar, took a mouthful of his whisky and looked back at me while I got down as much of my drink as I could in one mouthful. God knew, I needed it. I could stand my ground with any man, but Hyde had a way of catching me off guard.

“You calm down after that thing about owing me money this morning?” And there he went, flipping my feelings about him on their head.

I fixed him with a look that let him know I wasn’t impressed. “I didn’t have anything to calm down from.”

“You seemed all worked up about it.”

I threw some more of my cocktail down my throat. “I wasn’t.” But I was getting there now, that was for sure.

He drank some more whisky, keeping his eyes steady on mine. “Okay.”

Okay? Oh no he didn’t. He didn’t get to end a conversation with that bullshit. “Okay? Seriously, you’re going to end with that?”

“It seemed pointless to argue.”

I finished my drink and placed the empty glass down with some force. Sliding off my stool, I said, “We weren’t arguing. I was simply telling you like it was.”

“Yeah, I’ve picked that up about you.”

My eyes practically popped out of their sockets. “Picked up what about me?”

“That you like to tell men like it is.”

“I do not! You just have this way of pushing my buttons. I feel like it’s you, not me.”

His lips twitched. “Sugar, if I knew which buttons I was pushing, I’d push them some more. I never said I didn’t like the way you told me how it was.”

I snatched my bag off the bar. I needed a moment to get my thoughts under control. In the space of seconds I’d switched from wanting him to wanting to smack him to wanting him again. My mind needed a break from the whiplash. I took a step away from the bar and said, “I’ll have another cosmo.”

Without waiting for his response, I headed in the direction of the ladies room. I’d almost made it there when a hand slid around my waist and I was pushed up against the wall in the dark hallway. A hard body pushed against mine as the hand around my waist slid down to settle on my ass and warm breath whispered across my cheek. “My cock likes that attitude of yours. Surprised the fuck outta me, but I can’t deny I want more of it.”

The proof of his statement ground against me, sparking need all over me. Every inch of my skin blazed with desire. I gripped his shirt with both hands and found his eyes. “You and I weren’t made for each other, Hyde.”

“I’m not saying we were.”

My body went to war with my mind. It fought me kicking and screaming, desperate for what he was offering, but I didn’t want to surrender. “So what’s the point of starting something?”

He pushed his cock harder against me. “I came here against better judgement tonight. Nitro told me you’d be here and I came because I couldn’t, for the fucking life of me, get you out of my head. I want my hands on those curves of yours and my dick as far inside you as you can take it.”

#Review – Lone Wolf (Olento Research Series #2) – Sarah Noffke

Lone Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research Book 2)

When one man can’t reconcile with the wolf inside of him, he knows all he can do is run. Take thewolf with him and run away from those he doesn’t want to hurt. But will that be his greatest mistake?

The pack is coming together, but one wolf would rather be alone with his demons than united as a team. In the second installment in the Olento Research series, Connor runs from the Lucidite Institute and his pack, fearful of what the wolf will make him do. All of the men describe feeling the impulses, thedesires that are unquenchable, coursing through them. But Connor knows he has a lesser chance of resisting those impulses due to his background. And after what he almost did to Adelaide, he can’t risks it happening again.

However, Mika hasn’t given up and he’s more driven to retrieve the werewolves he knows belong to him. He plants a mole in the Institute and thengoes to work creating a werewolf meant to catch other werewolves. One that is stronger, faster and bigger than those in the original pack.

Meanwhile Zephyr is quickly following leads and tracking down members of the pack, but will he be one step behind Olento Research? Can he rescue his team and stop Olento Research before they capture their would-be assassins?

Lone Wolf is darker and more grueling than its predecessor. However, it’s also a story about characters who are so beautiful with all their many flaws. It’s a story about how the very best intentions can still lead to the worst scenarios. When one intends not to hurt another, they may find that’s exactly what they’ve done.

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

This is the second book in the Olento Research series.  Adelaide is trying to round up all the werewolves before they cause anymore havoc. She was able to locate and bring a few of them to the Lucidites. However, Conner feels guilty after attacking Adelaide and runs as far as he can from her and the Lucidites finding himself falling into his old habits. Mika is not giving up he has added his own element of surprise for the wolves and Lucidites with another experiment and an unseen undercover spy.

The twist and turns mixed with the suspense and humor kept me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next. The dynamic between Adelaide “Freckles” and Rox’s “Hooker FBI Agent” had me in stitches. I see more and more of Ren coming out in Adelaide.  I enjoyed learning more about all the warewolves and watching how some are learning to accept the wolf inside them and how others just are not coexisting with theirs at all.  Absolutly love when you get a glimpse of characters from Sarah’s other series, like Dr. Dave Raydon from the Vagabond Circus Series. Oh and we get to see a little of Lucien’s powers at work too.

Sarah Noffke did a wonderful job blending her Dream travelers, warewolves, evil villain, suspense and tons of Ren like snarkiness in this book. I cannot wait for more of this series and get to know these wolves, Adelaide, and Rox better.

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

Oh sister wife!!  Another great read from your nomads.  Plus seeing Rex and Shooter….yup I loved it!!

Judge has done what he thought was the right thing for his woman his whole life.  He stayed away so she could live and not be worried. He has missed her his entire life but thought this was for the best.  He has been miserable but he wanted her happy.

Tamalyn AKA Mandee has hidden.  She was delivers by Judge to a safe place but after some spidey senses alerted she took off.  She misses her family and her cousin but she knows she should keep moving to keep everyone, including herself, safe.  She misses and curses Judge for leaving her and not loving her enough to stay.

When Judge faces their past and finds out what all haunted Tamalyn, he was not a happy man and it makes him even more driven to fine his woman.  After a realization from her cousin, he needs to claim her and keep her by his side forever.

When the guys stroll into Tamalyn’s bar she is beyond excited, relieved and scared.  But seeing Judge sends her heart into over dive.  Does she love him?  Can she trust him?  Who the heck is this Trapper guy??  LOL  I mean Trapper…I love him so much!!

I am super excited for Rowdy but Trapper…yeah his book is going to be something else!!

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

I so love Chelsea’s men and their women.  I tell you I feel like I am right there in the mix of things with them.  I never want to set her books down I just want to devour them and still need more.

What happens when the people you are supposed to trust the most to take care of you and protect you are the evil of all evils?  You lean on and trust your best friend but what happens when they get you away from the evil and leave you even if they believe this is the best thing for you. This is what happened to Tamalyn Andrews. She did not let is slow her down she had gut instincts that when she knew the past was on to her she ran to keep safe. That is until the one that left her behind finds her.

Bladen Jones (aka Judge) always keep an eye out for his Tamalyn. When the time was right he was able to get her to safety. When the time came he went looking for her again and was determined to never let her go or leave her behind no matter what the cost.

These two are such a complement to one another. This is one of my favorite second chance friend to lover story. The friendship that Tamalyn was able to have with her cousin was amazing knowing the trust issues she has. The twist and turns in this book had me gasping and saying NO WAY! Talk about keeping me on edge while taking me on a hairpin kind of ride. I cannot wait to see what Chelsea has in store for us next.

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

 

#3Review- Taking a Gamble by Britni Hill

Title: Taking a Gamble
Author: Britni Hill
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 6, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Taking a Gamble is a flirty and funny romantic comedy about what happens when your life takes a turn and your best friend’s twin starts hitting on you.

Who knew a weekend in Vegas could change everything about your life?

Not me. I went to there to get married.

Kind of.

That was the plan. Until it wasn’t anymore.

I had the perfect dress, an awesome venue, and my closest friends with me.

What was missing?

My groom. That’s right. He bailed.

It’s all going to be okay. Some things are just meant to be. What better city than Vegas to leave it to chance?

Maybe that’s how I woke up as Gabby Thomas and went to bed Mrs. Brennan …

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

Shut up already! I loved this sweet and sexy read!!  I loved Luke and Gabby’s fun and untraditional romance.

Gabby is going to Vegas with her friends and family to marry her long-term boyfriend Trevor buuuut wakes up not married to Trevor!!  OH SNAP!!!  We don’t know the person she is married too until a few chapters later buuuut come on you totally can see the chemistry between Luke and Gabby as do their friends.

Luke has loved Gabby from afar for so long and now that he has a chance with her, he will not blow it.  Luke gets and understands Gabby because they have grown up together and are good friends.  Best friends even you might say.  So when he asks her to take a chance…..YES YES YES!!!

I totally hope we get more books from the side characters.  Ian and Brock plus Lila and the other girls are fun characters and I want to know more especially with the morning after scene we were witness too…..LOL Ian is a scream!!!

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

What is a girl to do when everyone has plans to go to your wedding in Vegas but you know there will be no groom? Well you have everyone come and try to make it a party. That is exactly what Gabby did.

Gabby was determined to have fun in Vegas what she didn’t plan on was leaving Married. You see her best friends twin brother, Luke, has had feelings for her for a while but Gabby was unavailable. So what is a guy to do when they find out the girl is not getting married and they are in Vegas? That’s right he went out on a limb and hoped she would meet him.

I enjoyed Gabby and Luke’s chemistry you could tell from the get go they shared a special something. This was a fun, sexy, light read with a great bunch of friends.  I hope there will be more I enjoyed all the characters and would love to know more about all of them.

Witty, sexy, and all around hilarious. I was pulled in immediately and could not put this book down. I could see this story playing out like I was watching a movie screen. The characters came to life and are full of personality. The only downside is that I wanted more.
What was meant to be a wedding weekend turned into something that no one could have predicted. I was instantly drawn in and left wanting more. You won’t be sorry you picked up this book!

#Review #ReleaseTour – The Demon Who Loved Me – by: Jessie Lane

 

Title: The Demon Who Loved Me
Series: Big Bad Bite Series #4
Author: Jessie Lane
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release: May 28, 2017


He’s a gambling man…

One brunette bombshell with a devious mind and a potty mouth has thrust Kent smack dab in the middle of where he never wanted to be—his family. He’s spent most of his life avoiding his familial responsibilities, especially the one that required him to join the Ninth Circle Council—the demon society’s equivalent of judge, jury, and executioner. Then one lost bet with a little Amazon flips his entire life upside down. With worries about retaliation from the remnants of a rogue pack of wolves in Germany, he doesn’t have time to deal with his family, or his obsession with Chloe Demos.

And she’s the biggest risk he’ll ever take…

After her mother’s death, Chloe’s world crashes down around her. A secret Amazonian heritage. Aunts and a long lost brother she never knew about. Supernatural beings. With all of the sudden changes, she’s decided it’s time to step out from behind her façade of an air-headed, materialistic bimbo and show her sisters she truly does love them—she only hates their wardrobes. What better way to show she cares about her family than to help prove someone close to one of them is innocent of the bogus murder charges from some ridiculous council? Chloe has no scruples about calling in the marker the demon Kent owes her in order to do just that. It’s only too bad she’s underestimated Kent’s intelligence, and his playboy charm.

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

I have wanted to know Kent’s back story for a while.  The way he looked after his partner and the dedication to his job I knew there was good in the Demon.

Kent was the playboy that never hung around long enough to fall for a woman. He was also dodging his duty as a Demon. That is until a certain Amazon walked in taught him a lesson and could turn the world as he knew it upside down.

Chloe was the fashion diva and portrayed the roll of the airhead. But when secrets come out about her family and one is in trouble she knows it’s time to let the real Chloe out. She uses her whit to get Kent to help her not realizing what it will cost Kent in the end.

The chemistry between Kent and Chloe is great with Chloe pushing to protect her heart and Kent pulling trying to show Chloe his isn’t what she and everyone else thinks they know. Can I say I can relate to Chloe’s sister Elena I find myself acting similar to her when spiders come around only I which I had a flamethrower lol.  I did have tears when Chloe, Elena and Gage went to see the psychic and learned what was coming their way. I loved how Jessie incorporated all the past characters of the Big Bad Bite Series.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via netgalley for an honest review.

Holly crap…this was a great page turner for me.  First of all I don’t usually read anything that is scary but when it’s Bella Jewel I have to read it. If I thought 72 hours was dark and suspenseful wow did Bella crank it up a notch for The Watcher.

Marlie Jacobson was kidnapped and tortured several years ago. She was able to get away from her kidnapper.  Her mother capitalized on her nightmare and published a book tossing Marlie into the spotlight everywhere she went. Now her sister is missing only no one believes her when she says there is foul play involved.

Marlie hires Kenai Michelson a private investigator to help her find her sister. Even though he believes her sister is a runaway agrees to help find her.  To see Marlie and Kenai go on this cat vs mouse type of chase and see how they get to know each other was a great story.  Both have their past they are trying hard not to let the other in on. Marlie holds her past in and never truly told anyone what all she endured with The Watcher.

I loved Marlie she was a strong never give up type of woman. She was able to outsmart The Watcher overcome what she endured and was a stronger smarter woman for it. Kenai was so frustrating to me in the beginning I wasn’t sure if I was going to like him but in the end he won me over.  To see Kenai transform from the cold standoffish brooding man to one that was understanding and protective was amazing to see. This story took me on so may twist and turns just as you thought they were on to something there was something else that would be exposed that blew that thought out of the water. I have to say some of the scenes tested my gag reflexes and Marlie was a strong woman to be able to overcome all she endured.  All in all I have to say I cannot wait for another dark suspenseful mystery from Bella Jewel.
