#WOTRAttending #NewRelease #Review #MC Greyson by JM Walker


Title: Greyson

Author: JM Walker

Model: Ryan Stacks

Photographer: Michael Anthony Downs

Cover Designer: Just Write Creations

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: July 19

Confusion. Lust. Fear. Passion.
It started the moment she passed out in my arms.
Seduction. Vile. Depraved. Desire.
She couldn’t remember her past but looked to me like I was her future.
My walls were built. My heart was cold. My emotions vacant.
After being alone for five years with only my motorcycle club at my side, she was who I had been searching for. The one I had needed all along to light up the darkness surrounding my life. Just when I thought I had her, just when I thought I could finally allow myself that happiness I didn’t think I deserved. She was ripped from my hands…

Goodreads

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

HOLY COVERS BATMAN!!!!!  Yep, Greyson’s cover is gonna grab you by the throat with how hot it is, but the man inside is what’s gonna make you stay and fall in love.

Now, we’ve met Greyson before he was in Walker’s King’s Harlots series, however you have to read those books to follow what I hope is the start of a all new series!!!

Greyson is, let me see how do I describe him???  HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!!!  ALPHA, ALPHA, ALPHA!!!   Motorcycle ridin’ , leather wearing, DOMINANT, all wrapped up into one ball of a yummy President.

Eve is a girl who doesn’t know who she is literally, not that she’s trying to find herself she has amnesia.  She was running through the woods when she passed out outside of of the Hell’s Harlem clubhouse, Greyson’s MC.

While everyone is trying to figure out who Eve really is there is also the relationship that she and Greyson are kinda but not really fighting against.  Both of them feel this heavy pull toward the other and man is it yummy.  Greyson is a man that knows what he wants, when he wants it, and forget about Eve I wanna give it to him.

Man, Walker can write some intense stuff.  Eve’s background, the holy hotness relationship of Greyson and her, the man himself is even intense.  I really don’t know who she walks around with these people in her head!!! Lol.

OMG!! And Greyson’s club brothers!!! I forgot about them!!! They sooooooooooo, need their stories told, I mean I fear for JM Walker’s sanity with all these intense hot guys in her mind!!! Lol!!

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review – Pieces of Forever by H. D’Agostino


40223998

Does having everything you desire make your life perfect? Does having a perfect life mean you’re happy?

I had a perfect life once upon a time. It was the life I deemed myself deserving of. I had a wife, a child, a successful business. I was happy, but I was also blind.

I didn’t see my faults until it was too late. One moment changed it all. It changed me and cost me everything. Everything I thought I needed to find happiness disappeared, and nothing else mattered.

All that I need is to get a few of the pieces back. Pieces of my perfect forever are the only thing that can make me whole again.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

This is the story of two broken people who are trying to find their way through life.  Jackson is lost without his wife and daughter.  When life takes them from him, he has had several years of misery until Tessa walks in his bar.

Tessa has a life of questions.  She is looking for answers to her life when she lands a job at the bar Jackson owns.  She is drawn to him like a moth to a flame but knows he doesn’t see her this way.  She has her trusty friend Jules there to help push her out of her box and into Jackson’s bed.  Tessa’s fun loving spirit was fun to read, and I loved how she made Jackson get all super alpha. He made my heart squishy.

When Jackson gets drunk and peruses Tessa, they are both in for a up and down roller coaster of a love story.  One that neither expected. Tessa has to confront her past while Jackson is licking his wounds about his wife and daughter.  The two must confront the demons that haunt them all while trying to stay true to the person they have fallen head over heels in love with.

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

How does one deal with having their world taken from them within minutes or overnight? Jackson and Tessa are both dealing with this in different ways.

Jackson owns a bar in town and has been trying to deal with losing his wife and daughter in an accident years ago. He is trying to move on and submerge himself in work. Until the day Tessa walks in the bar looking for a job.

Tessa cannot remember anything of her past.  She is trying to figure out who she is. When she starts working for Jackson she is drawn to him but there is no way she can cross the line with her boss. Even if she did want to pursue him she knows he is not interested in her.

Jackson and Tessa are both overcoming issues and find they can help one another move on. Their stories hurt my heart and then gave me the feel goods.  My favorite scenes were the sandcastle scenes they tugged at my heart. I did enjoy watching these two getting to know each other and falling in love. Sometime life does not go the way you plan it but in the end life takes you were you need to be.

#WOTR18 #CoverReveal – Unseen Heart, Part 1 by Elena M Reyes

Title: Unseen Heart: Part One
Author: Elena M. Reyes
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2018
Cover Design: Decadent Designs by Dee

 

Love sucks.
 
It’s an emotion that can cripple you—make you weak—something that pisses me the hell off each time I see the object of my desires.
 
It was never my intention to fall in love, but I did, and most of all with her.
 
She takes over my every waking moment and dominates my free will.
 
A woman whose world revolves around a man that will never see her as more than his best friend.
 
We are reliving the same story, yet this time, with a different protagonist.
 
You meet and fall into lust.
 
Play that dangerous game of cat and mouse that makes the spoils of victory worth it. You chase and she, the coquettish viper, enthralls you with her every smile. With the sway of her enticing hips while she stupidly follows the impossible: he will never be hers.
 
I hate her.
 
I love her.
 
F*ck you, Ashley.

#AudioReview – The Brightest Sunset (The Darkest Sunrise Duet Book 2) by Aly Martinez

34374740

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Bullshit.
Words destroyed me.
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Lies.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
“He’s gone.”
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”

Goodreads

Amazon

This was a good duet. I was hanging on at the end of The Darkest Sunrise thinking how is this all gonna play out. How are Porter and Charlotte going to survive all that was thrown at them?

Charlotte lost her son 10 years ago when someone stole him from his stroller in plain daylight. Porter lost his wife and nearly lost his son in an accident. Both were fighting the dark but were able to find some light with each other. But can their love endure what is planned for them next.  What happens when one son is found and one son is taken away? Will they be able to find the light again?

Charlotte and Porter will have to learn how to live in their new life all while trying to deal with family. We see the struggles of both families and how the kids deal with what is going on in their lives. My heart hurt so much for everyone as things unfolded…ok maybe not everyone some could have not been such an ass.

I enjoyed this family not just Charlotte and Porter but the secondary characters also. There were times in this book I just didn’t see how Porter would be able to see the light again as he slipped back in to the darkness. I have to say Porter stole my heart with his distraction games…where are we going to be in 6 minutes, 6 hours, 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 months.

Once again both the narrators were great. I could feel each emotion the characters were going through. It was difficult to put this one down.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.
“You’re pregnant.”
“It’s a boy.”
“Your son needs a heart transplant.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Lies.
Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.
Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.
“He’s gone.”
For ten years, the darkness consumed me.
In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Goodreads

Amazon

This gutted me I was reading my worst nightmare. No one wants to have their children taken from them. Watching all that Charlotte when through was heartbreaking. Really what does one do when your whole world is snatched from you?

Charlotte was helping a child at the park when she left her son unattended and someone took him from his stroller. Filled with regret Charlotte was in a dark place where every child she saw she thought could that be my Lucas? Charlotte became the best pulmonologists but she refused to treat children.

Porter Reese lived his own type of hell. He fell in love not only with his wife but her son, Travis, which he adopted. After a tragic accident Porter was left to raise his children. He only wanted the best for his son when finding out he needed a heart transplant. Porter found Charlotte and he knew he had to get her to see Travis some way somehow. Only thing was she would not treat children. With some help Porter was able to meet Charlotte but after meeting her he saw darkness filled her the way it did him. He realized the more he was around her the more light he saw.

But what happens when a few words changes your life? Can what Porter and Charlotte worked so hard withstand what was going to happen to all of them.

This book had me so torn up. I love Porter from his confessions in the dark to helping Charlotte turn on the lights. He seemed to have a way of pulling Charlotte back from the dark. I was not expecting the ending and as soon as the last words were read I had to download The Brightest Sunset. I have to know what is going to happen to this relationship and all involved.

Then narrators in the book were great. They brought the book alive and I had a hard time pushing pause.

#CoverReveal – Crave by Adriana Locke @authoralocke

 

Who is ready to meet Machlan Gibson?

This STANDALONE novel in the Gibson Boys Series from USA Today Bestseller Adriana Locke will be coming to your Kindle soon. We don’t have a firm release date yet, but we’re hearing it should be the first of August. (Is it the first of August yet?)

What does Adriana have in store for us in Crave? Check this out:

Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson.

Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he’s won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly.

Machlan isn’t over her.

It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes.  He’s not over her, but she won’t know that.

But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever.

While we wait for this release, we can “get to know” Machlan through his Spotify playlist here.

AND you know you need to add it to your To Be Read List.

Amazon Alert

There’s a great giveaway associated with this cover reveal too! A signed paperback plus two $10 gift cards. Book money, anyone? LOL!

$10 Gift Card to Winner’s Choice of Store

 

 

As a side note, if you haven’t met the other Gibson Boys, you really (really!) must. They’re small town. Blue collar. And totally, absolutely delicious. Check out Adriana’s Amazon Page and look up Crank, Craft, and / or Cross. All can be read as standalone novels and all are available in Kindle Unlimited.

Hello all!! Summer is here and with it is that lovely heat and humidity we love so much, NOT!!

I am here to let you know my Top 5 of the year so far and man I really haven’t branched out much these last few month, however that just means I know what I like or real life happened and I couldn’t read a lot.  Either way I love these ladies that I’m gonna tell you about and hopefully you will enjoy them too.  So, here they are in no particular order my Top 5.

Happy summer!!

Twinsie Kristi

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

Axel Walker, also known as the Assassin, was a half-breed so his loyalty lay with the highest bidder. Who had the most money to hand him at the end of a job was the side he was on whether human or vampire. His highest pay day was yet to come and all he had to do was kill the one they call the Slayer of Vampires.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

The Bad Girl series is a 2018/2019 collaboration between 13 authors releasing one book a month about kiss-ass women with a penchant for being bad, Teresa Gabelman gives us May’s Bad girl with Karma’s Revenge.

OMG!!! If anyone knows how to write about hot Vampires it’s Teresa Gabelman.

Someone is going around town and killing vampires and now the Slayer of Vampires has a price on her head.

Sophie Deluce is looking for the vampire that killed her sister and left her stuffed next to the toilet in a public bathroom.  In doing so she has made the vampires so nervous that they put a contract out for her and assassin Axel Walker has her number, however once he she’s her and finds out her reasons he returns the money and decides to help her get her man.

I was  excepting some of Gabelman’s VC Warriors to show up, the story was so good!!!!

Sophie is one kick a** woman who needs this to get justice for her sister and no one is going to stop her.  I love how she sticks to what she wants even knowing there is a price on her head, so with the help of a half-breed assassin and her drag queen best friend she continues on her mission.

I swear Gabelman does vampires like no one else and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Axel and Sophie.

 

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he’s not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he’s got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they’re vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?

First let me say, Oh My Good Gravy, I love when these three ladies minds get together!!!

This is the start of the second collection of the Doms of her Life Series.  The first is Raine Falling, you don’t have to read the first to understand the second, but there is some intersecting timelines and the characters from the first do make appearances in the second.  Speaking as someone who has read the first it’s not one to miss because it’s yummy goodness!!

Now onto Beck, Seth, and Heavenly.

Beck is Dr. Kenneth Beckman vascular surgeon and a sadist who is a Master at Shadows.

Seth Cooper is a New York PI in LA to help out his friends Hammer, Liam, and Raine, he is also a Dom, but isn’t a sadist. 

Heavenly Young is a nursing student that volunteers at the hospital that Beck works at.

One look is all it takes for the two men to fall for the innocent Heavenly.  

These ladies do a great job of bringing alpha men that make you want to both smack them and swoon at their feet to life.

Beck begins being in her life as a much needed friend and Seth by taking her out on a couple dates, however, when she tells Seth that she also has feelings for Beck the jealous butthead runs home to New York, where he spends weeks being miserable.

Once Beck thinks that Seth is out of the picture he begins to date her , then Seth comes back to town. 

Heavenly can’t choose between them so the two men agree to each date her until such time as she can.  What happens next is a lot of yelling at your reading device or book as the men in the story can be a**hats!!! Lol!!

Also, Heavenly has some things that she hasn’t told her men and when they finally find out they are not happy with her in the slightest.

There are also some things that Beck hasn’t discussed either that are gonna bite him in the butt when Heavenly does find out.

I was so not happy to see the end of this story and was even more upset to see that I’d have to wait until 2019!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!

Get this book you won’t regret it, better yet get the first collection and this book, you definitely won’t regret it.

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

We are back with Brett and Evie!!  Years of marriage, three kids, and these two are still hot as heck together!!  Oh, and we get top see our very favorite sadist therapist!!!!

The past has come back in a big way to possibly screw up the life that they have built and let me just say that I felt just about all the feels with this one.

With all they went through in the previous stories to get and stay together I really thought that Walker was going to end this couple, I   mean how much more can two people take, and the ending?? Omg, please make sure you have tissues handy for that because you will need them and a strong drink when your done.

Walker has done a freaking mind f*** with this one so hold onto your hats  ladies and gents its going to be a bumpy ride.

Oh, and afterwards there is the story of Brett and Evie meeting for the first time, but told from his POV.  It’s awesome!!

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

My favorite family of Inked and bearded men are back, this time though it’s a different branch of the Montgomery family tree, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs!!!!

Ryan us blessed the world with the Montgomery cousins and I am one happy camper!!!

On this branch of the family tree we have Adrienne, Shephard, Thea, and Roxie.   Shep has already had his story told in Ink Inspired which was the start of the whole obsession that is Montgomery Ink.  Now it’s Adrienne’s turn and the start of Colorado Springs.

Maya and Austin, from the Denver Montgomery’s, are spreading their tattooed wings and opening a second tattoo studio called Montgomery Ink Too or MIT.  Adrienne and Shep are part owners of it with their family as well as the managers.

Adrienne is a tattoo artist and along with her bestie Mace, her brother, and friends they have MIT’s grand opening but it’s interrupted by some stranger saying that they aren’t welcome and that they wouldn’t be there long.

Mace Knight is Adrienne’s best friend, a tattoo artist, and a weekend dad to his daughter.  He is also a hot bearded silver fox!!!!!

Out of the blue his ex leaves the country and leaving him a full time father to the daughter he loves, so having to learn to become a full time father as well as starting a new job is hard on him.

Not only does Mace have a hard time with his new life, Adrienne is having a hard time also dealing with the new business and the threats to it.  Adrienne and Mace lean more on each other than they already do and start something new along the way.

I adore when best friends fall in love!!  They already know everything about each other but also learn so much more.

Adrienne and Mace are so good together I can’t believe that they haven’t moved beyond friends before now!!! 

The steam coming off these two can be seen for miles, but there is also tenderness.  The tenderness between Mace and his daughter, between Adrienne and his daughter, and the way that he realizes that they make a perfect family.

Between  Adrienne and Mace falling in love and the threat to the business  we learn about the other Montgomery girls and get to see how Shep and his family are doing now that he has moved back home to Colorado Springs.

I can not wait to read more about this branch of the family.

Luke Lennox knows he doesn’t deserve happiness. After tearing his family apart, he’s been punishing himself by living a solitary life. But when he sees Georgina Mills, the animal inside him knows: she’s his mate. His lonely heart yearns for her, but he knows that it could only end up badly for them both.

After being rescued from the clutches of an evil anti-shifter organization, Georgina Mills has finally settled in Blackstone with her young bear shifter son. She’s got a job, a home, and Grayson is finally around people like him. Now, if only the handsome, golden-eyed lion shifter who rescued them would notice her … but she’s knows she’s not exactly a catch. Besides, keeping Grayson safe is her priority for now, so her heart will have to take a backseat.

As their enemies advance on Blackstone, Luke must do everything he can to protect his home. He must also deny his growing attraction to Georgina, though he can only fight for so long before he must give in to his desires.

But Georgina is keeping a secret – one that’s so terrible and unforgivable and she doesn’t know if she can keep it under wraps for long.

When the truth is finally revealed, can Luke and Georgina’s love keep them together? Or will it destroy them, along with Blackstone?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Yay!! We finally get to my favorite mysterious shifter in the Lennox family, Luke.  Adopted into the family when he was found as a cub he is a lion shifter in a family of dragon shifters.  As a adult he is estranged from his family for the most part and lives a solitary life coming to the Lennox’s only when needed.

Georgia Mills and her shifter son Grayson were saved, from a group of people that were kidnapping and experimenting on shifters, by Luke in previous book Blackstone Wolf.

Luke and Georgia find themselves attracted to each other, but Luke doesn’t want to be around anyone not even a beautiful woman who could be his mate and her young son who needs help controlling his shifting.

Georgia knows if Luke finds out her dark secret he and everyone in Blackstone will be after her and possibly her son.

Oh my goodness, Montgomery has got writing a story about reluctant mates down pat and does a awesome job at it.

I have so been waiting for Luke’s story since book one, wanting to know what makes him tick and where he came from.  This story was so worth the wait.  

Luke and Georgia have both been through so much in their lives they are like two halves that form a whole, 

Seeing them find themselves and seeing Luke interact with Grayson is totally awesome.  A love story at it’s finest.

Plus, no Blackstone Mountain story is complete without the antishifter group making a appearance and boy do they make one in this one.

I can’t wait to see who is next to find love on Blackstone Mountain.

Enrapture by Rachel Van Dyken

Trace is everything.
My freaking world.
And I would do anything to keep her safe.
But, I can’t protect her from every kind of evil..and I can no longer keep the past a secret…
We were left folders.
Each one filled with the sins of our pasts.
And Traces grandfather just asked us to read his.
There was no preparation.
And now I’m wondering if I should have let the love of my life read it at all, because some things can’t be unsaid, some words stay with us forever.
I know, from this day forward, nothing will ever be the same.

Goodreads

Amazon

I so enjoyed this story because we get the back story on Joyce, Luca and Frank. I also enjoyed seeing all the family again.

What happens when Trace gets a hold of THE black folder? Nixon gets a tad wound up ok maybe more than a tad and well the others are bringing in chips and dip for the show. I was a bit upset at how Frank just left things out and ran leaving Trace to deal with what she was learning about without him around. I did like hearing Frank and Joyce’s story. The love that Joyce had for both Luca and Frank was amazing and heartbreaking at the same time. I can now understand how someone can hold your heart and another consume your sole.

These diary entries had me in tears. Oh land what Frank does for Joyce and his brother. Truly shows the love he had for Joyce. Luca seemed to be a cold and heartless man but now I see why. Man Luca can love and he does it with his whole being. This just shows his heart was not cold as stone there is warmth in there.

This was a great addition to the Eagle Elite series it filled in some gaps and answered questions. Those letters really got me I had tears at times. I cannot wait for more of this series I’m telling you I cannot get enough of these families.

#AudioReview – Elude (Eagle Elite #6) by Rachel Van Dyken

25712676

This book is the sixth book in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series. It’s an interconnected stand alone novel with no cliffhanger.

Twenty-Four hours before we were to be married–I offered to shoot her.
Ten hours before our wedding–I made a mockery of her dying wish.
Five hours before we were going to say our vows–I promised I’d never love her.
One hour before I said I do–I vowed I’d never shed a tear over her death.
But the minute we were pronounced man and wife–I knew.

I’d only use my gun to protect her.
I’d give my life for hers.
I’d cry.
And I would, most definitely, lose myself, to a dying girl—a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place.

I always believed the mafia would be my end game–poisoning my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption.

Or the beginning of something beautiful.

The beginning of her.

The end of us.

This is the 6th book in the Eagle Elite series and it is all about Sergio and Andi.  First of all if you are going to read this made sure you have some tissues ready because yeah I did the UGLY cry. Seriously there was blubbering snot sobbing sleeve wiping snot was happening here. There were happy tears and some tears shed in laughter too. I had to wait a bit before I wrote this review to let it all really sink in. Ember was my favorite of the series but Elude is right up there with Ember.

I love Andi she is so full of life and has a great since of humor for all she is going through. She is one tough cookie and loved that she could land Sergio on his ass. Oh and holds her own with the guys too. Andi and Sergio’s banter to the end is hilarious and heartwarming.  I so loved her ‘Italy’ and his ‘Russia’. Andi was cracking me up with the pot and bat…awesome going Andi.

Sergio the mysterious he doesn’t let anyone in or truly see him. He never saw Andi coming nor did he expect her to be the one to make him feel something, feel alive. Sergio stole my heart with Andi’s 2 to 3 twirl dresses and with Andi’s Honeymoon list…I was swooning and there were tears.

I’m telling you this gutted me. This is a story of family, love, best friends, life and death. Absolutely love this love story and even though I thought I was prepared for the ending NOPE not at all. Andi’s letter to Sergio seriously I have no words she is amazing I could see her love for him and even her funny side coming out in it.

Raising my glass of Vodka…Cheers to Andi and Sergio’s love until their end and longer.

“I love you, Italy,”
“I love you, Russia.”
“For as long as we both live…”
