#WOTR #NewRelease #Review #MC/Military Numb( King’s Harlots #4) by JM Walker

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

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.

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

For those of you that don’t know Max, short for Maxine, and Dale let me fill you in so you are ready for Numb.
Max is the Vice-President of the Kings Harlots. She’s and Jay have been BFF’s since they were kids. She’s a artist and she’s the good one of the club.
Dale is a member of Vice-One. He’s also a man whore. When they first met, they were totally hot for each other. That is until Max told Dale she loved him and she was preggers. Dale being the coward and man whore that he is kicked her to the curb and proceeded to fill his bed with other women trying to replace her, but there is no one like Max.
When we last left the two of them Max had given birth to a still born baby girl and Dale was in a coma.
Ok, the happy part first. Yay, to our resident sadist doctor being in this book, he always makes me happy.
Now the rest, LOL.
I have to say WOW because Walker does a great job of pulling the feels out of ya. I cried, wanted to smack both Dale and Max, and finally smiled.
These two are the definition of a toxic couple. Max hates Dale for they way her treated her when she told him how she felt, that she was pregnant, that he woke from the coma not remembering how he treated her, that she lost her baby girl, and yet she still loves him. Being with him, even if they don’t talk, is the only that makes her sane.
Dale knows he loves Max, knows he did some really screwed up shit to her, even if he can’t remember what. He just wants her back, wants her to forgive and trust him.
These two push and pull each other like a rag doll. When they’re together they heat up the room, but they just cant seem to get their s**t in order. The will they or wont they drives me to drink!!! Lol!!!
Oh, oh, oh, and we now know who is the head of the human trafficking group, in the middle of this too.
Walker girl you drain me, but I can’t want for the next book ill make sure to stock up on tissues and wine.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Loving Quinn: The Lone Wold Defenders Book 2 by Alicia Montgomery

Happy-go-lucky wolf shifter and hacker Quinn never saw the point of committing to just one person for the rest of his life. After all, with his devilish good looks and charisma, he could have any woman he wants. Any woman, except the sassy almost-witch Selena, who seems resistant to his charms. While he denies his attraction to the curvy redhead, his own animal craves her attention, and Quinn finds it difficult to stay away.

Having no magical talent meant Selena was at the bottom rung of her coven hierarchy. Mocked by her own family and pitied by the rest of her coven, she builds her own life away from them. When an offer comes that could finally give her the respect and standing she’s always wanted, it should have been easy to say yes. But a certain sexy and handsome Lone Wolf shifter has sent her into a tizzy, and she risks the chance of being welcomed back into the fold by giving into her own desires.

When Quinn’s past comes back to haunt him, it puts Selena in the line of fire and he’ll do anything to protect her. However, Selena has problems of her own and she finds herself having to choose between the life she’s always dreamed of or bet her heart on commitment-phobic Quinn. Staying together only means danger and pain, but can they really resist the attraction between them, which could end up imploding both their lives?

If you LOVE reformed playboy/virgin paranormal shifter romances, then READ this book!

Loving Quinn series is a paranormal romance novel with over 60k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan action and no cheating. It takes place in the True Mates Universe but works as a standalone novel.

Quinn is the Techie of Lone Wolf Security, he is also known as a ladies man or in today’s vernacular a man whore. However, there is something about the best friend of the brothers secretary that he’s drawn to he is going to be the one thing he never is with a woman, her friend.
Selena Merlin is a New York librarian and witch, but she’s a witch in name only because she was born without powers much to her dismay. Being a witch without powers means she’s low man on the witches totem pole and can be banished from her coven at anytime, so she is being forced into a arranged marriage by her father. She knows what type of guy Quinn is but believes him when he says they can be friends.
First off let me say arranged marriage?? What is this Victorian England?? I get it, I really do poor Selena is having to do something for the good of her family that she doesn’t want to do, we’ve all been put in that type of situation. She’s so use to doing things for everyone else and being last in the witch world, she finds it hard to put herself first when she’s in it.
Second, friends with Quinn? Uh, yes please!!! Lol!! I love these two finding their way with each other, the LOTR movie nights are really sweet!!! When they do decide to move it into something more it kills me that they hide it from their friends, Quinn’s family, and that she hasn’t told Quinn about the marriage deal or told her father that she’s not going through with it.
Speaking of Quinn’s family, man that is one humdinger of a plot twist. Nope, these lips are zipped you’re gonna have to read it.
Oh, and someone keeps trying to kill them!!
These are the questions that you’re asking yourself as you’re reading: Are Quinn and Selena Fated Mated? Does Quinn find out about the arranged marriage? Will Selena ever put herself first? Who’s are they trying to kill Quinn, Selena, or both?
By the end i was happily wore out, and laughing my tale off at Jolene and the epilogue. I can’t wait to see what Montgomery has in store for us with Connor, i just know it’s gonna be a beast.

#DoubleReview #NewRelease – Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4) by Sarah Noffke

Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4)

 

One man will kill to get back what belongs to him, even if he destroys himself in the process.

Mika Lenna, the CEO of Olento Research, won’t be deterred. Yes, the Lucidites have the upper hand, but he has something better. The one thing that can really stop them. The potential to create the rivalry to any werewolf. Mika has crossed the final threshold of humanity to do something that no human would dare do. But if it pays off, then for him, it will all be worth it.

The pack is stronger than ever, but still missing so many members. Still, they find a way to band together to create a cohesion they didn’t know in their past lives, the ones before becoming werewolves.

Meanwhile, the Lucidites are quickly making progress with a solution that might help the men assimilate with the wolf. However, will it come at a cost? The men have become accustomed to the wolf, and losing it may feel like leaving behind a part of themselves.
And finally, Adelaide has realized that her father’s death made her lose a part of herself. She dives deep to find a way to recover it, but will she surface, or much like her father, will she be lost forever?

In the final installment of the Olento Research series, the wolves must defend and those around them must decide if they’re willing to battle along beside them. The final fight won’t be nice or fair, especially when there’s so much at stake. Each wolf is hungry for victory, but will their maker be their death?

 

Goodreads

 

I absolutely love this series! I feel like I know these characters. They are a part of me, my tribe, lol! Adelaide is one of my most favorite characters ever. And combined with Rox (our resident hooker FBI agent), Zephyr’s pack of werewolves, and one of the nastiest supervillains makes for an intense read. All of the characters are trying to find their true self. They are tirelessly working on bringing the rest of the pack in when things take a turn for the worse. People are being tortured and are dying from Mika’s experiments. This has to be stopped and this crew is working on the solution. I feel the story is about overcoming self doubt, taking opportunities, and accepting second chances. Bad Wolf is nothing short of a page turner. There is never a dull moment within these pages. It’s action packed but with the sentimental touches that make this story absolutely special. The Olento Research series takes you on an extraordinary journey. I hope to see more of these characters in the future. Especially a certain couple. This is a must read!

**On a side note, I need to thank Sarah Noffke for giving us just a little more of Ren. Absolutely perfect. Sarah, thank you!**

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

Sarah has once again written a great series.  This is the final book in the Olento Series and I have to say it is my favorite series this far.  Really how could it not be my favorite it has werewolves, lucidities, and a little essence of Ren.

I was on the edge of my seat flipping the pages needing to know if Adelaide and Zephyer were going to get all the wolves back or if Mika was going to end up with them all. As always Sarah comes up with the best evil villains and Mika was like no other. He was killing and torturing people in the name of getting what he wanted at whatever the cost.

To watch the relationships of the wolves, Adelaide and Rox was amazing. To see how the wolves have grown and started working better with one another to see the strengths and weakness of each one, yes even Zephyer has weaknesses. Watching Adelaide gain confidents and learn how to cope with things was heartwarming. I have to say my heart was breaking to watch what Rox had to endure.

I hope we are able to see the wolves, Rox and Adelaide again. As this one comes to a close I am excited to see what Sarah has instore for us next. I have a feeling it will be just as good as the others she has given us.

A few of my favorites:

How does she do that? Pretend so well? Everyone thought she was so hard, but nothing could be further from the truth. This was a girl who just wanted to be loved. To feel deserving of that love. And if anyone ever told her how incredibly brilliant and beautiful she was, inside and out, then she’d feel a lot different about herself.

You’re an extension of Ren. You say his lines as if they were your own. You follow his practices, since they are exemplary. And you’ve inherited his snarky nature. However, isn’t the real concern you have with the group the fact you don’t want them thinking you’re an imposter? Now that they know about him, they’ll know you’re impersonating. The power you pretend to wield is his. Isn’t the issue that you can’t let him go as long as you refuse to be yourself rather than him? Who is Adelaide Lewis? She is the daughter of Ren, but she isn’t him. Have you asked yourself how you’d act if you weren’t trying to keep him alive inside yourself?”

he respected these two women, whom he’d been reluctantly thrown to. They were stronger than most people he knew, but had a flippant style that he’d come to appreciate.

he’s found a way to communicate from wherever he is, so I don’t think you’ve seen the last of your father yet. If I know him, he’ll be watching over you for the rest of his existence.”

Summary:
That bloody bitch thinks she’s the biggest villain here . . .
And I’m going to let her keep thinking that.
She thinks she knows how far I’ll go to save Ivy.
In reality, she has no fucking clue. I’d kill for her.
My humanity recedes while a demon is born. I want their blood on my hands.
The stakes are beyond high, trapped in this sex dungeon with no way out. Our loved ones are being threatened while we’re being forced to endure.
But none of that matters to me as much as the endgame.
I’ll be leaving here once I take the two things that matter most:
I’ll be claiming my woman.
And once I find our way out, I’ll be taking our captor’s life too.
She thought she could threaten my girl.
I’m about to show her just how wrong she is.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

SAW meets Sex. Holy crap.

Noah and Ivy are back again, trying to survive this situation they’ve been put in for the mere pleasure of others. They need to make choices, they need to behave, they also need to fight.

The woman, the voice making all of the demands, is outright evil and vile. She forces them to the point of breaking. And man do they ever break.

That last scene…the tension, the finality that makes them explode, wow. One of the hottest and most intense scenes I have read in a very long time.

These books may be short but they are written very well. And these ladies are the Masters of chemistry.

I’m already anxiously waiting the next part.

 

 

 

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Chance Encounter (The Lamberts of Pacific Knoll Book 1) by Kate Vale

When Alexis McCord’s abusive boyfriend is arrested, she seizes the opportunity to escape with her young son. Now she and 5-year-old Chance are building a life in the tiny, remote beach town of Sandy Reach, Washington. Lexi is even acting on her dream of becoming a baker with her own shop—if only Hugh never finds her.

For Fletcher Lambert, distraught after the death of his wife and baby daughter, Sandy Reach is a handy place to escape his memories, away from his law office and his large, well-intentioned but intrusive family, who are watching and waiting for him to move on. He’s not sure that will ever happen.

Then Fletcher meets Chance. When he learned that the waitress serving him at Omar’s pub is the boy’s mother, sparks fly in in spite of his intentions never to get close to a woman again. Lexi feels them, too, but her mistrust of men forces her to ignore Chance when he declares that Fletcher would make the perfect dad. After all, who listens to a five-year-old in the midst of all this grown-up angst?

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

Lexi McCord is trying to raise her young son right and that means getting away from his abusive and theft of a father. They run while he is in prison after he was arrested for robbing a jewelry store. Their car breaks down outside of Sandy Reach, so that where she tries to change their life around. It’s taken two years, but life is finally looking up for them.
It’s been a year since the death of his wife and baby daughter and Fletcher Lambert is still not over it. He has a hard time being around his niece and nephew, almost has a panic attack when he is called to go to the ER for his little brother, and is losing clients at his office where he practices law.
His law partner has put his foot down and told him he needs to get away and finally deal with it and maybe get some closure so he decides to go to Sandy Reach for some winter fishing and so he doesn’t have to be around his family for the holidays he decides to go for a couple of months.
Fletcher meets a child alone of the beach the first day he is there. He can’t believe that a 5 year old would be allowed to be alone on the beach, let alone be allowed on the beach in the winter without the proper clothing, he learns shortly that he got away from his babysitter. It isn’t until he starts talking to the child that he realizes that he recognizes the child as the one that almost ran out in front of his car when he drove into town and that his mom his the waitress at the pub he just left. The woman that has him thinking thought that were nothing about his wife.
Lexi tries hard to stay way from Fletcher after he tries to pay for fixing her son’s coat he found on the beach after that faithful day, but she can’t. There is something in him that calls to her.
What happens next is a story of a man falling in love again, a woman learning that all men aren’t bad and it’s ok to have feeling for one, and a child that knows what he wants and how to protect his mom.
Vale does a wonderful job showing the emotional storm of a man dealing with the loss of his whole world. She also does a great job showing how hard it is to be a single parent and how hard it is to trust again after leaving a abusive relationship.
When two people learn to love again it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see more of the Lambert family.

My mother said I wrote my first book when I was five–after I carefully copied the words in one of my favorite stories. A favorite children’s book I still have is a first edition, signed by the author, of MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, perhaps one reason I included reference to it in my indie-novel, PACKAGE DEAL.

Counting my current work as a novelist, I think I’ve experienced at least five different careers, the first four providing lots of grist for the mill of what my characters do or would like to do. One example? Olivia Brown in GRANDDAD’S HOUSE is a realtor. I was one, too! And realtors show up again in CHOICES and in a new book not yet ready for publication.

I hope you enjoy my stories. I love to hear from readers.

#NewRelease – Murray’s Law: (Urban Post-Apocalyptic Thriller) (The Night Blind Saga Book 2) by Christina L Rozelle

Murray's Law: (Urban Post-Apocalyptic Thriller) (The Night Blind Saga Book 2)

 

“You ever heard of Murphy’s Law?”
“Uh, yes. I think so. Everything that—”
“Can go wrong, will,” he finishes for me. “Yessir. But let me tell you a little something about Murray’s Law. When you’ve lost it all and you have nothing left to lose, when you’re stripped of all choices but to live or die, that’s when you get to choose whether to rise above or fall, defeated. That’s what you get to do now. It’s time to go back and make it right, Grace.”

I was broken before I was reborn, rebuilt from the ground up.
I was a devastated plane with no hope for life.
A toxic wasteland with no human survivors.
But I made it out, miraculously.
And I know who I am, now.
I’m Grace Anne Vincent, daughter of Eileen and Henry Vincent, sister to Corbin Michael Vincent, and best friend to Lucy Eve Davisson. I’m in love with a mystery named Gideon, and I have a will to live, lit by a fire deep in my soul.
The fire comes from loss.
It comes from longing and pain and thirst for vengeance.
It comes from agony and passion and loneliness.
I’ll survive.
I know I will, because I have, and I’ve even been given a second life. A life where I know who I am and what’s right.
I see the light of truth,
even in the darkness
of mental
collapse.

“It’s what we’ve all become now: hidden lights in the dark.”

If you don’t ingest your literature occasionally (or often) on the edge, gritty, in the dark, and/or possibly in a random stairwell, this series may not be right for you.
*Recommended for mature readers 18+

OMFG! I can’t begin to tell you how incredible this story is! This is all about having your quality of life leveling up on a permanent f’ing opposite day with some giggly trips down memory lane. 🙂 Just like the first story, Murray’s Law stays INTENSE! No matter what obstacle Grace is up against she remembers Murray’s Law. She has a choice. Not always an easy choice but a choice nonetheless. Grace is an amazingly flawed character that is continually growing emotionally and mentally. Gideon saved her and they have fallen in love. This author knows how to make the apocalypse romantic and STEAMY! As a matter of fact, all the characters that are introduced into this story are all fighting some sort of demon, their own apocalypse. I absolutely could not put this down. So many plot twists! I can’t really go into what happens because I will end up writing a book report and I am sure you want to know what happens without being told. With that being said, this story compliments Dysphoria and Grace perfectly. Even though Murray’s Law is the second in this series it is just as great, if not better, than the first. This series has made it to my top favorite, ever. If you like beautifully flawed characters with intense, action packed, and HAWT plots then you will love this just like I do. Well done, Christina Rozelle!!!! I’m hooked!!!!

 

 

 

Christina L. Rozelle

Ever since I can remember I’ve observed life, people, and things with a sense of awe and wonder. The stories I write are a conglomeration of my life’s observations, experiences, heartbreaks, and triumphs, bits and pieces of the beauty and devastation inherent all around us, and inside each of us. But for many years I thought I was broken. My “overactive” imagination was seen as a defect by me and those around me. Through my struggles with PTSD, BPD, suicidal depression, and debilitating addictions, I clawed at the earth in my hole, gazing toward the sun high above me. Would I ever make it out alive? Would I one day be able to walk beneath that blue sky a free woman, and share that gift with others? For a long time I doubted that would ever happen for me . . .

One day, my eleven-year-old came home from school, excited that they had just started reading “The Hunger Games” in her fifth grade class (teacher skipped the kissing parts—GASP!). Having been newly sober, and looking for ways to rebuild my relationship with my daughter who’d been through so much during my sickness, I brought up the idea of writing a YA novel of my own, and she’d help with the plotting and characters. I’d been writing poetry and prose forever, and never pictured myself as a fiction writer, but if it meant strengthening my bond with my child, I was willing to give it a try. What happened as I began this story about orphaned angel-humans, reptilian antagonists, and shadow-animal people, was . . . well, I scrapped that and started something else. Haha

My first full-length novel, “The Butterfly Prophecy,” was unpublishable, riddled with plot holes and a plethora of other errors, and ultimately ended up in a box. As a high school dropout with little college under my belt, I took to the local library and Google to learn how to (really) write a novel, and I was soon on my way to creating a work of art I’d be proud to share with the world. Though The Butterfly Prophecy wasn’t published, many elements, themes, settings, and a few characters from that story were used in the Treemakers Trilogy, which was really cool! Micah Greenleigh, Ms. Ruby, Emerson, Ty, and Aura (Joy’s mom) were so real to me that I couldn’t help but transplant them into their forever story home.

During the nine months it took to write that first book, I realized that writing was medication for me. When I wrote, my life made sense, I had purpose, I could breathe, and think clearly. I could use my tattered past to create a beautiful work of art, and that alone turned my life around completely. Two novels later I gave birth to “The Treemakers” during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month in November)2013. I scrapped that and rewrote the whole thing, publishing The Treemakers a year later. During its creation, I realized this was what I was put on this planet to do. Creating these characters for you to experience and feel, to love and hate, to laugh and cry and escape from reality into remarkable worlds with, brings me immense joy and fulfillment. So, thank you for your part in my journey, for being the receivers of this gift that was so freely given to me. You complete me. (Cheesy, but true! 😉 I’m continually amazed at the outpouring of love and support for me and my work, and I promise to do my best to continue creating quality stories for you to get swept away into.

I’m an eclectic writer with books and works-in-progress in many genres. My goal as an author is to make each series distinctly different from the last, so if one of my series’ isn’t for you I’d encourage you to give the others a try! Thanks again for all you do, and I wish you the very best in all of your endeavors.

Happy reading!
Xoxo Christina

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Hope Restored (The Gallagher Brothers Book 3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

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

AHHHHHHH! The end of another of my favorite series by Carrie Ann Ryan!!!! The Gallagher’s started as a spin off of the Montgomery’s and became a phenomenon all their own and that phenomenon has come to a end with the youngest of the brothers, Murphy.
Murphy stole my heart when he first came on the scene in the first book of the series Passion Restored. He is the lead architect for the family business, he’s the Gallagher with the shortest beards but has the longest hair ( Hello!!!!! Who cares how short his beard is, it’s still a beard and that makes him yummy!!!!), and he has dealt with his own mortality as a child, more than anyone should. F**king cancer!!
Tessa is apart of the family being that she is his brother’s fiancée’s BFF. She knows how hot the youngest Gallagher is, he’s her flirting buddy when the group is together. She’s attracted to him but she’s determined to be his friend and just stay the aforementioned flirt buddy.
First let me say; Damn you Carrie Ann, I knew that that Murphy’s story was going to be a rough one I was expecting that. I was not however, expecting that surprise blast from the past!!!!!!
Secondly, she’s makes me ugly cry over bearded men waaaaaay to often!!! Lol!!!
I seriously do not want to say anything other than that because you have to read Murphy to appreciate him and Tessa and all the crazy feels that Ryan produces with this book. He will make you cry, together they will make you laugh, as a family The Gallagher’s will show you how strong a family is.
Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for bringing another family to life with the Gallagher’s, Thank you for letting Murphy have his perfect story, and thank you for saying we’ll still see glimpses of them again in the Montgomery series.

It’s all right in front of me. In my grips. I can see it, taste it, feel it.
No chance in hell I’ll lose.
Until I fall at the mercy of another man’s hands.
I’m torn apart and forced to make difficult decisions while staring malicious hatred in the eyes.
Doors open and others close—ones I’m not ready to see go.
My course changes. My dreams begin evading me.
You think I fought hard to get where I’m at now?
You haven’t seen the depth of my perseverance yet.
This isn’t the end of me.
I AM NOT DONE.

Whitney
He has everything in his hands—his career, me, our future.
One costly mistake, a defiant decision, and everything vanishes.
As he holds my hand through the darkness, he loses it all.
I watch with anguish as he struggles to put the torn pieces back together.
It’s not as easy as he had hoped.
But his strength proves powerful. His determination unbreakable.
Together we’ll conquer.
Together we don’t accept defeat.
WE ARE NOT DONE.

“Dreaming in Reality…You dream in reality when you pick up a book and get lost in it. In my writing, I strive to take you to a place where reality and fantasy become a blurry line. Everything should be relatable. It could happen…couldn’t it?” ~ TC Matson

TC Matson loves to let her character’s voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily. With an understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers—her writing mirrors it.

She’s a romance junkie at heart and an avid reader. Add those two together and she will devour books within hours, getting lost in the world the author creates.

Matson resides in the peaceful Piedmont area of NC with her husband and three boys, where staying hopped up on caffeine is the key to her sanity. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is an absolute must.

#Review #Rockers Fatal Temptations (Fatal Cross Live! Book 2) by Theresa Hissong

My life has meaning again. I’m clean and sober, no longer relying on the poison to keep me going night after night as I perform for thousands. I have everything that I’d dreamed about for years; an amazing band, number one songs, money, and great friends. But there was one thing missing…a woman to call my own.

Presley Pittman is the lead singer for Witch’s Spawn and the opening band on our current tour. I find myself intrigued by the beautiful woman and whatever it is that haunts her. There is something mysterious about her that I can’t put my finger on. It isn’t until I notice a scar on her lip that I ask her about her past. I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for the pain of her confessions.

She has to grow to be able to live and I’m thankful that she lets me be the man to walk beside her on the road to finding herself. When a possible setback in my own life threatens to restore my demons, I have to make the decision to stay strong so that I can be the man that Presley needs, because her own demons aren’t too far behind…threatening to destroy everything she’s ever known about her past.

 

What can I say about Ace and Presley? They are AWESOME! Presley has dealt with a lot of crap in her life and Ace has himself where he wants to be, clean and sober. Seeing his band Mate Taylor find love shows that that it can happen. Ace has been drawn to Presley since she and her band started the tour with them.
Presley has major trust issues outside of her band mates, which is totally understandable, but there is something about Ace that makes her want to add him to her trust circle and be with him.
The way these two connect is awesome, she has become the only addiction that he needs and he has become her rock, her safe port in the storm.
I love when Hissong writes any of her rocker books, she has a way of making you feel like you are there on the road with them.
I can’t wait to read more of the band!!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

Cora Maddox is tour manager and roadie extraordinaire for her cousin’s band Glory Days and has been since she was a kid.
She is tiny but mighty and no one knows how to get shit done for a band better than her. Her only problem now is Taylor Vaughn, guitarist for Fatal Cross Live. The little island fling they had while she was on vacation showed her how much she really liked him, but when she tried to contact him for months afterwards he wouldn’t take or return her calls and that showed her that he really was just looking for someone to warm his bed.
Taylor Vaughn, didn’t have a rough childhood his problems started when he and his band fell face first into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll life style. Yes, he was a man whore but something about little Coraline Maddox set him on fire. He knows he screwed the pooch when he never returned her calls but he had to get clean, be better so that when he next came to her he could beg his forgiveness and he could be the man she needed.
Now that they have to be together, because he’s filling in for Glory Day’s guitarist, she doesn’t know how she is going to face him but she knows that she isn’t going to let him know how bad he hurt her.
Man, Hissong is great at writing a rock story she really makes you feel like you are there. How she wrote about Taylor’s addiction problems and how he struggled to get clean and stay clean was awesome.
You can tell that Cora and Taylor feel for each other, even after the shit that they’ve been through. When they need each other the most though will they be able to stand strong or will they crash and burn? I’ll never tell!!!! Lol!!!
Check out Taylor, Cora, and the rest of the Fatal Desire crew to find out.
