Prologue

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was in love with her. But almost as fast as that love formed, she was taken from me. Now as I looked down at my daughter, laying in my arms with her eyes closed, I only imagined that she would open her eyes for me. Just give me a breath. Anything. Wake up for me, baby girl.

When my lips touched her forehead, I prayed with everything in me that she would cry. But she didn’t. She couldn’t. It wasn’t fair. None of this was fair. The man I loved wanted nothing to do with me and the daughter I didn’t know, was stolen from my very body.

I begged to anyone who would listen, let her stay with me. Take me instead. She didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve any of it.

With tears rolling down my cheeks, my sobs of anguish ripped through me. They took hold and strangled me, sucking the air from my very lungs.

“I love you, baby girl,” I kissed her softly on her perfect mouth. “I love you and I don’t even know you,” I said through my tears. Brushing my thumb over her full cheek, I kept my lips against her forehead. “Lord, give me strength. Help me move on from this.” My breath hitched. “Help me learn to live without her.”

“Maxine.”

I didn’t look up at the gentle voice, knowing that the person had come to take my baby away.

“It’s time, dear,” the nurse reached a hand out, placing it gently on my baby’s head. “I’m so sorry.”

A sob tore from my throat. “It’s not fair,” I screamed, my soul shattering around me. “It’s not fair. I need more time. Please.”

The older nurse nodded, leaving me alone with my daughter.

Lying down on the bed, I kept her by my side, holding her close.

It never should have been like this. We were supposed to be happy. Just her and I.

When my baby girl was taken from my arms, the last bit of light inside of me went with her. My world would forever be clouded in a sea of darkness.

Because of this, a part of me died.

Because of him, I would never be the same.

#Review #MC Raiden’s Choice (A Ravens MC Novel Book 1) by J.L. Leslie

I was raised in a motorcycle club. I saw things no little girl should ever see. Did things no little girl should ever do. That was my life and I loved it. The Ravens taught me about family. Loyalty. Even loss.

Now I live a different life. I’m no longer part of that family. I’m no longer part of the club. I live a life where I pretend to be the person I am. I put on a show for the world and I’m good at it. I’ve perfected it. At least I thought I had. It didn’t take him long to see right through me.

I have a choice to make. Keep playing pretend or finally be who I have always wanted to be.

“When you’re ready to stop hiding who you really are, come find me.”

**Raiden’s Choice is the first book in the Ravens MC series. It is a standalone, full-length novel and is suitable only for mature readers. It includes adult content, adult language, sexual situations, drug abuse, violence, and talk of rape.**

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

I love finding new authors, especially new authors that I can tell my reader friends about and I have found that in J.L. Leslie.
I was immediately sucked into Raiden’s world. Growing up she knew that the Ravens MC was her family, after all her grandfather started it and was the President and her father would take over the spot when she grew up. Her father helped find her calling in the club after the death of her mother.
Fast forward to grown up Raiden and she is a hidden club asset, one that only her father knows about. To the outside world it looks as if she and her father are estranged, if only the world really knew her, she is working a long term plan for the club that she came up with.
Then we have Luka Varelli a motorcycle riding MMA fighting hottie. He hates MC’s and wants nothing to do with them, but he makes a deal with the ADA to infiltrate the Raven’s to help get he’s brother Lincoln, who is in the Rykers MC the Raven’s enemy, out of jail.
What happens next is Luka and Raiden finding out about each other, more importantly they find something they didn’t know they were looking for in each other.
Leslie shows us that women can be tough as nails and still be desirable to a man and she also shows that the right man will help that woman become who she really is and stop hiding her true self.
I was left with that lovely feeling of wanting more. I wanna know if Luka and Lincoln can be brothers again, I wanna know more of Luka’s life before we met him. I wanna know if Raiden’s choice is gonna bite Ravens MC in the a**. I wanna know if they finally bring down the Rykers MC.

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my writing. I can hear a song and it can inspire an entire book for me. I listen to it while I’m driving or before I start writing and it keeps me inspired. I like to put music in my books, even if it’s just one song the characters listen to or hear at some point. Sometimes music has gotten me through the really tough times in my life and that’s why it inspires me.

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other. I am an avid reader. I absolutely love romance books!

#WOTR #COVERREVEAL – Numb (King’s Harlots, #4) by J.M. Walker

Blurb:

He doesn’t remember.

In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.

The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.

Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.

Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.

When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Rude (King’s Harlots #3) by JM Walker

33009433

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

His past haunts him.
Broken and destroyed, keep him silent and withdrawn.
Vice-One is the family he had always needed but it isn’t enough. Shadows of a nightmare threaten to take back the control he craves until Brogan Tapp unknowingly puts him in his rightful place.

She pretends to be happy.
Smile. Laugh. Repeat.
Going through the emotions of everyday life when really, she’s a scared little girl on the inside.
She tries hard to be what society considers as normal when Coby Porter helps her embrace the darkness within. He shows her it’s okay to be different.

Their souls collide, giving them the comfort they need when an unknown source takes pleasure in trying to rip them apart.

Goodreads

Intense. Dark. Dangerous. Delicious. What do you do when you find your match? Coby-effing-Porter and Brogan-little one-Tapp. The most unlikely of pairs. In the past stories we learn that Coby is a man of few words. He only speaks when necessary and is like a ghost. Brogan is a small girl but is one of the toughest of the King’s Harlots. She is extremely outspoken and doesn’t beg for anything or anyone.

As King’s Harlots and Vice-One are dealing with their own personal issues they are still trying to get to the bottom of the trafficking scandal. One night Brogan is “interrogating” someone from the organization and Coby sees a very dark side of Brogan. What most people would find dark, scary, and extremely intimidating, Coby fills with a lustful desire for Brogan. Both have had their fair share of people they have slept with trying to sate their appetite but neither have been able to let go like they do with each other. They are in a complex game of give and take. Both have had terrible childhoods, very different but similar all the same. And here is where they they really start to rely on using each other. Brogan almost dies in an accident and Coby becomes extremely protective of her. Then, Boom! Buckle up for an intense ride!

And this is about all I can tell you of the actual story so there are no spoilers. But there isn’t just one twist that will stop you in your tracks but there are several twists that are going to make you gasp. I mean real, heartfelt, deep in your soul gasps. I thought the other books in this series were intense but this one takes the cake. Once again the bad guy is truly twisted and really puts this story in its place. I find that when I read a series that the first book is usually the best and then they wind down as you go through the series. Truthfully, this is my favorite one yet. It is not your normal damsel in distress. Again, many gasps…promise. There is plenty of hotness that I have come to know from JM Walker with this series but the rollercoaster ride of emotions is the killer. Beware, you won’t be able to put this one down!

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He wants to be alone.
Nightmares from his past keep him guarded and afraid.
Vice-One is his life. They’re his brothers—the only people who helped keep him out of his own head long enough to move on from the childhood he never asked for.

His therapy has been protecting his country, barely taking a break before beginning his next mission. But no amount of training can prepare him for his great challenge yet—convincing Meeka Cline that she will be his.

She wants out.
Her world fell apart when King’s Harlots no longer trusted her, but she continues to fight to gain back their respect.
All she wants is to help those wronged by the evil that has put a shadow on everyone she knows.
Asher Donovan comes to her for help when he needs her most only to have passion flare up between them. One problem: He’s her best friend.

Putting aside their friendship, they use the heat between them to please the depraved minds they now understand…

Goodreads

What did I just read?! Uh, yes! Gimme more! This can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest reading Grit first because you get a feel for Asher and Meeka along with the rest of the supporting characters. Stain is aalllllllll about Asher and Meeka. These two have been best friends since they were kids. But that’s it, just friends. They trust each other implicitly. This is a story of friends turned lovers…sometimes a bit cliche’ but JM Walker hit it out of the park with their story.

Asher is undercover and trying to find the ringleader of this sex trafficking scandal that we learned about in Grit. He needs help and ends up bringing Meeka into this undercover as well, but not necessarily with her consent. As they are about to meet the person in charge now, Charles Brian, they end up kissing and things heat up extremely quick between the two of them. Now completely submerged into this other society they try to keep up appearances but things slowly unravel. Asher is more invested in the background of this story than you will ever expect. It will pull at your heartstrings! Unexpected people are in the middle and things go to hell in a hand basket very fast. Plenty of twists to keep you on your toes and constantly guessing who and what is going to happen next.

If there is one thing that JM Walker knows how to do, it’s writing a HAWT scene, but one thing I have come to love is the way the bad guy comes to life with her words. Charles Brian is a bad guy that you love to hate. As if Meeka and Asher aren’t intense enough on their own, the setting, the supporting characters and the bad guy will keep your heart pumping. I am not normally a fan of MC books but I cannot put this series down. Bad girls and their bad guys! Perfect combination.

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

Walker drops us once again into the dark and gritty world filled with MC’s, special-ops, and human trafficking with Brogan and Coby.
These two have interested me from the start of the King’s Harlots series and I’m so glad that their stories are finally told.
Brogan Tapp is the smallest of the all female MC’s club, but don’t let that size fool you into thinking she’s weak. Growing up with four brothers made her tenacious, the darkness inside of her made her a woman that you did not wanna mess with. She’s has a crush on Coby since his team came on the scene, but having gotten up the nerve to ask him out only to be shot down she does what he wants and gives him his space.
Coby Potter is a member of Vice-One the special-ops team that is now intwined the King’s Harlots due to love. Being a Navy sniper and a member of the special-ops team he has seen and done some dark s**t. The darkness is all he knows and he deals with it by lots of sex with random skanks. He wants Brogan but, he doesn’t want his darkness to get her, she’s too good. Oh, he knows she isn’t some pure lily white flower and that just turns him on more.
When they finally get together it is dirty and raw, which is perfect for these two characters and they in all their darkness are perfect for each other.
While still trying to find the person in charge of the trafficking ring s**t, goes down and that darkness inside them both ultimately was save them. I love a story with a strong heroine, one that can be soft with her man but tough as nails to the world outside their circle. Brogan is that woman and Coby lets her be what she needs to be and loves her for her even more because of it.
I adore that we see our favorite sadist Dr. Santos at the end. I have no idea who the next book is going to be about but, I do know that there is still a lot that the Harlots and Vice-one have to deal with and its going to be bad.

#WOTR #Review Grim, King’s Harlots 2.5 by JM Walker

 

 

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He never thought he could be happy.

Vice-One had been what he needed most, until he met Genevieve Gold.

She can’t forget her past.

The walls she’d built are hard to break, even after falling in love with Angel Rodriguez.

They have been together for months, have tried to be happy but still can’t find that certain connection—the piece of them that should ignore the evils of life and focus on the love they have for each other.

 

Goodreads

 

What an intense and wild ride. Hot and steamy with all the drama we have come to love. This novella dives you right back in the middle of Jay’s and Angel’s relationship that has been quite the rollercoaster of twists and turns. In Grit these two fell in love quick and hard. They are both broken and have been independent for so long that they don’t know how to put the past in the past and move forward with their future. This is a quick read that gives you all the dirty details. You get a lot of background on Jay and can see how each one is tortured with this past. But most importantly you get to see how they start to come around to overcome this. There is a helluva surpise at the end that could change a lot for everyone. I have fallen in love with the King’s Harlots!

The Protectors: Sloan by WOTR Attending Author Teresa Gabelman

Not only does VC leader, Sloan Murphy, have to keep the peace between the human and vampire race, but he also wrangles VC Warriors in his spare time. It’s a job that could drive a saint insane, and Sloan is no saint, but insane he may be. While his Warriors find mates, he swears he will not follow in their footsteps.

Becky Spencer, his new secretary who he reluctantly employs, is set to threaten every stoic promise he’s made. With an instant attraction that is hard to deny, she fits into his world with confident ease.

Even though Becky has sworn off men after her nasty divorce, she can’t help the desire the sexy and serious Sloan Murphy stirs in her. It isn’t until she sees how devoted he is to his job and the Warriors under his command, that her lusty feelings turn into more. Working in close quarters, they both fight the pull that grows with each passing minute.

Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

Roar by Kallypso Masters

Haunted by a tragic accident that yanked his beloved wife from his side, Kristoffer Roar Larson has been going through the motions in life. But when he meets the dedicated surgeon and humanitarian, Pamela Jeffrey, he feels an undeniable connection to her, stirring feelings he’d buried long ago. After encountering her in a compromising position on a tour of a BDSM academy, he realizes there’s more to her than meets the eye. Fascinated by her assertive alpha personality, coupled with her desire to submit and serve, Pamela intrigues him.

As Pamela shines light once more into the dark corners of his life, Kristoffer finds himself struggling between remaining in his safe and lonely world or emotionally opening himself up to a vibrant woman, who asks for nothing more than he’s able to give. Guiding her in mind-training exercises to prepare her for some future Dom, Kristoffer finds his body awakening as well. Will Kristoffer be able to close the door to his past and open his heart to the ginger-haired sprite who makes him question everything he once believed?

ROAR is a standalone novel that has some familiar secondary characters from Rescue Me Saga, but the main characters are new. You don’t have to read the series to fully enjoy this book.

Year of the Scorpio: Part One by Stacy Gail

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a DARK mafia romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***
They call me Dash.

Sixteen years ago my brother and I were kidnapped. The Scorpeones believed our father, boss of the Vitaliev Bratva, could be pressured into relinquishing his hold on Chicago’s underworld.

They were dead wrong.

Ultimately the Scorpeones made the youngest of their family pay for their sins. I tried not to care. Marco Polo Scorpeone, the hostage whose life was forfeit if his family moved on the Vitalievs, was the enemy. Why should I care if he was tortured worse than a prisoner of war?

Except I did care.

For sixteen years I’ve cared, more than I can say.
They call me Scorpio.

There was no light in my world. Then I saw Dash smile.

No voice could pierce my darkness. Then I heard Dash speak.

I’ve killed to survive. Killed to please my handler. Hell, I’ve killed to please myself. Killing is what I do.

I know I’m not good enough for Dash, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that she’s mine, from now until the end of time. But that time might be nearer than I think, because someone deadlier than me is closing in…

Author’s Note: This is the first half of a two-part story arc. YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART ONE ends on a cliffhanger, which will be concluded in YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART TWO. You have been warned.

Review on Goodreads

Love Restored: A Gallagher Brothers Novel by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Black Swan Affair – KL Kreig – WOTR Attending Author

So to start off my list I have to say this first book kicked my butt n the very best of ways……..

Black Swan Affair

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.
He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.
I married his brother, Kael.
Now we’re one big happy f*cking family.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
*Big breath in and out. Wipes my teary eyes and looks at my lappy trying to figure out how in the heck I am going to write a review for this book of amazingness without just blabbing and telling you the whole sorted story.*
Maverick…she has loved and I mean whole heart loved Killian her entire life. She has grown up knowing he will be her forever. Promises made and kisses stolen but yet he comes home to destroy her by marrying her sister.
Kael is Killian’s younger brother who has loved Mav his entire life. He has been by her side for everything. He has helped her when she fell and celebrated with her for every victory. He has also loved her for as long as he can remember. When he married her he really and truly married the woman of his dreams. Too bad she didn’t return that love.
Killian was doing the right thing by Mav. He was waiting for her to grow up but he was plotting to have a forever with her but then everything changed in the blink of an eye.
The story killed me. The very first chapter you can see a whole lotta emotion…… We can feel Mav and Killian’s chemistry but at the same time I am rooting for Kael. We can see how much he loves and had loved Mav. He was there to heal her heart after Killian betrayed her. He was slowly becoming her everything and my heart was so happy for our couple….and then…BOOM…the closet flies open. Everything changed in the blink of an eye. The book made me a mess. Who do I want Mav with? Kael or Killian? Her present or her past? Her best friend or her forever love??? Is she destined to be a Swan or a Small Fry??? I loved and hated each man at different times in the book for different reasons but then when we find out why they did things………..omg my heart would just bust wide open for them.
I am a huge fan on KL’s writings and she is an auto buy for me because her writing is flawless and has so much emotional depth in it. If you haven’t read her stuff, you are missing out and need to one click the rest of her library. If you already are a fan this book will make your heart skip a few beats like every other book you have read.

Afterglow- Maria Monroe

The tag line says it all…sexy 5 star apocalypse reading

Afterglow

Who knew the apocalypse could be so sexy?

Nina can shoot a gun, start a fire, and kick some serious ass. So when a killer virus and solar storm decimate the country, she’s as prepared as possible to survive. She just needs a motorcycle to navigate the cluttered roads and meet up with her family.

Creed, former Marine, is tattooed and tough. He’s scarred inside and out. Loss is no stranger to him, and he avoids getting close to anyone at all costs.

When Nina tries to steal his motorcycle they have a vicious fight, but necessity and attraction force them into an uneasy alliance. They travel together through the dangerous landscape, where trouble lurks around every corner and they need each other to survive.

But the biggest danger just might be falling in love.

Equally as exciting as it is sexy, Afterglow contains graphic sex and some violence, so please read at your own risk. 18+ recommended.

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

OMG I am in love with this book and I totally would love to read more from this cast of characters. I mean Logan needs some love too right????

SO this book starts out with Nina looking to make it to her grandmother’s house to ride out this killer virus. She meets our hottie Creed when she is trying to steal from him..ooopsie Nina. Creed is stunned stupid to find out that the punk that is trying to steal his motorcycle is a kick a$$ female. The two run in to some not nice guys and Creed decides he needs to leave so he will see Nina safely to her grandma’s house and then take off for parts unknown. I loved Nina’s sass and the fact she isn’t a helpless female character. She has spunk and fire and she WAS going to see her family again. I loved that Creed also loved her tenacity and welcomed her fire during their travels.

Along the way, the couple banter and it fuels the chemistry that is just burning underneath the story. OMG I was like “SOMEONE MAKE A MOVE ALREADY!!” It was super hawt. When the two get to “getting to know each other a bit better” we can see them both forming an attachment but both don’t want to get attached because attachment means heartache.

Along the way, Nina and Creed meet some good people but mainly run in to the evil that is taking full advantage of this ruined society. They two end up helping another person who also has lost it all due to the virus and that character tugged at my heart just like they did Creed and Nina.

The end of the book had me a mess. I was reading as fast as I could because I needed to know if they would make it safely to Nina’s grandma’s house PLUS what will become of Creed and Nina.

Man of Honor – Sarah O’Rourke – WOTR Attending Author

All the Feels 5 star reading

Man of Honor (Passion in Paradise, #4)

Sheriff Zeke Monroe loves one woman…Honor McKinnon. He is willing to stake his entire future on protecting her…no matter what the cost.

Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one…not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff…can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down Honor’s walls…and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer.

He’s already killed for her once…and is willing to do it again if it means she’ll know safety and happiness.

What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save Honor when her life is in danger once again?

Join Sarah O’Rourke in this epic culmination of the Men of the McKinnon Sisters stories…and find out how the Passion in Paradise series is always scorching hot! Standalone, romantica suspense.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
*blow out a breath* WOW This book…..its not just a story…it’s an epic journey for our characters. We all know what happened to Honor and we all can see how the sheriff feels for her but to finally see the story and see their journey…….Without a doubt this is my favorite book in the series. Zeke and Honor battle against so many different issue to be together. Honor has gone through kidnapping, rape, torture, attempted murder and even stalking. This would probably kill most people but with her sheriff by her side pushing her and not letting her succumb to the darkness that is after her.
Folks this is a LONG A$$ Book but none of it is fluff or filler. It is total story but you gotta be ready and prepared for everything that they will face together. I absolutely loved Zeke and loved how he was so confident for his love for Honor that he claimed her 6 years ago. She was in no frame of mind to deal with this unconditional love. Throughout the book we can see Honor realizing her feelings for Zeke and also being completely terrified by them.
Some of my favorite scenes are with Honor and her cray family. They are so solid but don’t know how to help their baby sister thought her dark times. Other favorites are hearing our innocent Honor talking openly with her therapist. SO funny!! But what I really loved was the 4th of July chapter. So much happens and so many realizations are made…my heart was thumping happily.
I am an epilogue whore so the epilogue made a tear come to my eye. I love the set up for the next book and who will be falling into love. This couple is going to be alot of fun to read about that is for sure…..

Burning Resolution – TM Cromer – WOTR Attending Author

5 epic Lemon Donut Laughing your butt off stars

Burning Resolution (Stonebrooke Book 1)

Armed with a New Year’s resolution and a surly attitude toward physical fitness, Erica Sutton hires a personal trainer to whip her pudgy self into shape. What she hadn’t bargained for was Zack Sharp – the owner of Workout World – assigning himself to be her workout nazi.

An obsessed ex-lover of Zack’s notices the attention he is paying Erica and sets out to remove the competition by any means possible.

Now, Erica and Zack are holed up, debating the merits of donuts, sex, and love while their crazy stalker sets out to light their world, quite literally, on fire. It’s a race against time to find their assailant before the relationship they’ve started to build is burnt to the ground.

I received this book for an honest review.
*Snort* Yes I am still laughing at this book. I mean if you like funny and insane then this my friends is a book for you. I mean the first chapter had me LAUGHING so hard and out loud. It’s an over the top yet so much fun read. I think that if you enjoyed Tara Sivec’s writing then you will need to read these as well!
Erica, the main character is soo me….packing on a few pounds and hating the way she looks she decided to go to the gym. Holy Mother of God who is the work out sadist…errr…coach?? Why yes hottie from high school Zach that’s who! The banter had me cracking up at parts and laughing so hard. When the two are flirting and thinking about the good old high school days there is a bit of drama which causes Erica and Zach to spend more and more time together which makes them become more and more attracted to each other. The chemistry was hot and their relationship was a wild ride. The suspense storyline was good but you can kiiiiiiinda figure it out but the twist we get was something I wasn’t expecting!!
Yes there were times I was gonna vagina punch Erica for letting her insecurities push Zach away and same to him with a solid nut punch because he would compare Erica to women from his past but generally I loved the two. I laughed so hard and was thrilled when the book 2’s story line started to take shape…man Mason and Shondra are gonna be so much fun to read because he opened his mouth and inserts his foot A LOT around her!! LOL
 

Pretty Ugly by Mary Martel – WOTR Attending Author

Holy MC Mother Of Goodness 5 star reads

Pretty Ugly (Mercy Mc, #1)

For Carmine life is messy and at times it can get downright ugly.
Bounced from one foster home to the next she’s never really had a real home or a real family. Bitter, spiteful and angry, at the young age of thirteen she finally lands in a place that sticks. And it is in no way a good place… except for him.
One look is all it takes for her to find a home and it’s not in a place but a person.
Lucien Oliver found himself orphaned and in the system after both his parents were murdered in front of him by a rival outlaw motorcycle club. Knowing he’d grow into the man his father groomed him to be, and that being not a very good one, he keeps everyone at a distance and only speaks when necessary. That is, until she shows up.
One look is all it takes for Carmine to steal a piece of Lucien’s heart. A heart he has no desire to give away.
For two years, they live under the same roof and become the best of friends and the only family they have to speak of. Then, one night just days after Carmine turned fifteen, the unthinkable happens and they find themselves ripped away from one another in the most tragic of ways.
It won’t be until years later when they meet again. After Lucien is no longer Lucien but rather the enforcer to the Mercy Motorcycle Club and a man known as King. And after Carmine gets out of jail, doing time for a crime she didn’t commit. Now adults and practically strangers they learn that life for them is always going to be messy and if it can get any uglier it will.
Lucien pushes Carmine too far and she finds herself in the arms of another. But will she stay there, or will she find her way home?
This is the start to a series and a spinoff of The Dollhouse Series. Due to adult content, it is not recommended for readers under the age of 18. Contains m/f/m scenes. The following books will contain m/m and m/m/f scenes.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Mary!! What are you doing to me! OMG this book….I sat down to get a few chapters in before I got around to doing some Christmas stuff annnnnd 60% in I decided I needed to take a shower!!! King and Carmine…..I am speechless!! I wanna kick you butt at the ending but speechless. Hawt and bothered because DAYUM was that a hot scene but utterly confused by who I love more!!!
I was super excited for this spin off. Do you need to read the Dollhouse series? No but will you get a better appreciation of the craziness that you will be reading? ABSOLUTEY!!
King and Carmine have this “connection” in the Dollhouse series. We know that they watched out for each other in foster care and we know that she is in love with him and he her but the secrets that we learn about in this book….oy-freaking-vey.
Carmine and King have been through A LOT. He has loved her from afar and he blames himself for letting her down during a big moment in her life. She feels like she was betrayed by him and through this “issue” they are separated. King vows to spend the rest of his life to find her. When he does, shocked doesn’t even begin to tell you how he feels regarding her current situation. He will take care of his woman and he will do it right the eff now! And FYI she is not to thrilled to see him again ya’ll.
Carmine is so confused by King and what he does to give her some justice for her past. She is also confused by what she is feeling for him and his two brothers, Stephan and Hash. The couple need to stop yelling and hiding and start talking. Everyone can SEE the chemistry and the sparks but they both are ignorant to how the other feels.
Carmine goes through a huge journey and finds an ally in her quest to capture King’s heart all the while also hoping that this love will heal the ally as well….dreamy sigh at my hopes for the next book……
The book stops COLD and leaves ya hanging but it also leaves me with hope because we can SEE the plan starting to unfold!! Plus for you non-Dollouse readers it gives you time to read that series to prep you for book 2 of King and Carmine!!

Shamed by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

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

AHHH!!  These two!!!  I flipping love their worlds and to read them again joining up….happy day for me!

Kenie and Dixon.  Young love that will conquer all their past and they will have a great life.  However, plans made and dreams dreamed can certainly be changed.

Kenderly’s father dies and the love of her life leaves her.  She is then stuck in a rut for 8 years caring for her uber depressed mother with the help of her Aunt Ruth.  Kenie can’t forget Dixon who is now called DJ even though he can’t remember her name anymore. Dixon/DJ left the girl he loved to earn his place with his club.  He can’t forget her but she has pushed him and everyone else who loved her away to care for her momma.

When trouble finds Kenie, DJ is all there white knighting it to claim and save him woman buuut that sassy mouth of hers is not having it.  Kenie will not be an afterthought and will not be disrespected.  The spark has been relit in her soul after some devastating things happen due to her kind heart and knowing DJ, she will find her way back.

I flipping love Kenie.  She is lost but she finds her way back.  I effing LOVED DJ.  He loves hard and once his claim is laid, his woman will be by his side even if he has to cave man style carry her with him….LOL

I am super excited for the other books and looks like Shamus and Drea will be a good spark filled book too!!
