synopsis

Merc:
His name is Merc.

He has no past.

No future.

Only a thirst for revenge against the traitor who betrayed his team and his country – Agent Jack Mankel.

When he’s handed a mission to rescue a sitting US senator’s daughter from the traitor’s clutches, Merc jumps at his chance for vengeance, never dreaming the girl he rescued could be his downfall…

Nightshade:
She walks in the night.

She is a shadow.

An operative so elite even the president doesn’t know of her existence.

Her whole life, she’s lived to serve, raised in the black-ops team her father, Jack Mankel, created. Then her whole world is turned upside down when she learns the sister she once thought dead is really alive; and to save her, Nightshade will have to take on the hardest mission of her life…

Merc knows he doesn’t deserve her. Nightshade knows she can’t have him. But a connection so powerful neither of them can resist draws them closer, even as a betrayal so deep threatens to destroy their very existence.

kristis review

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

This book picks up a month after the events in the previous book. The TF-S team is rescuing Caroline Cotter who Mr. J kidnaped, but little do they know that it isnt really Caroline.
Ok so many things!! First, this is Merc’s book and we don’t know much about him other than Mr.J really screwed him over, more so than the rest of the team I think. Second, you don’t really wanna feel for the enemy but God I can’t help it!! Nightshade is Mr. J’s daughter, well she think she and Caroline are really his because that is the lie that she has been told all her life. That Caroline’s father kidnapped her and killed their mother when they were babies, when in fact it was the other way around but she doesn’t know that.
Nightshade and Merc fall for each other, but she hates herself for it because she is just pretending to be her sister and knows that once everyone finds out who and what she really is they will hate her for it, but she is there to do a job and get out.
There’s just so many levels of hair pulling in this book!! Lol!! You tug a little bit because you see these two falling, you really pull hard and wanna throw the book because you know she’s the enemy’s daughter but you see that she isn’t as bad as him, and finally you just rip it out because you just wanna slap them both; him for not realizing she’s the enemy and her for not realizing the lie she’s been living.
I love that we finally learn more about Merc, that we get to see the rest of the team again, and that things in the end turn out better than predicted. I can’t wait to see the team get Caroline back, the real one, and Mr. J get his comeuppance.

#Review – Grit, King’s Harlots 1, by J.M. Walker

26244050

 

synopsis

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

 

He refuses to fall in love.

He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.

Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.

Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

 

She is lost.

Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.

King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.

Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

 

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

kellys review

Female MC’s and Alpha Military? Yes, please!!! O.M. Wow! Absolutely instense! The perfect set up for an incredible series. Alpha female and alpha male….who dominates?

Jay has grown up in the MC world and ends up starting her own female MC club. She has has so many things happen to her in the past that she closes people out but is fiercely loyal to the ones she loves. Angel is a Seal and is constantly being sent out on missions. He had a difficult childhood and with work he generally closes people out, except the ones he loves. On Angel’s downtime, him and his team do construction work. While working on Jay’s club there is an explosion, literally. The brief time that Angel and Jay met he has felt sort of protective of her. The explosion amplifies it. There are girls missing in the area and both are trying to get it sorted out. Both of their pasts creep up on them and things go chaotic. There are so many underlying secrets coming to light that will keep you glued to this story. There is no way you will put this down. From the HOT physical intensity to the chaotic story line to all the feels…….My only issue with the book is that it ended! Noooooo! This is the perfect storm for a crazy good, hot as hell story!

 

“A small smile crept on my face. He was adamant I would fall for him. Maybe he was right. But two could play that game. I was the creator of my own story, and no man was going to change that.”

 

“Angel Rodriguez was the epitome of every sinful desire I had. Every dark secret. Every fetish and fantasy. He dominated my body and took control, giving me the greatest pleasure in return.”

 

If you are still reading this you need to stop and one click this. One helluva ride! Woohoo!

Stain (King's Harlots MC, #2)

synopsis

“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…

angies review

 

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

WHAT!!  Asher…and…..Meeka!  OMG this book was so good…like way better then book Jay and Angel and that was a great book too!!!

OMG SO Asher and Meeka totally had me wiggling my eye brows at the two of them.  They had this chemistry but hid behind the “best friend” lines.  When Asher needs his best friend to go undercover he gets Meeka involved.   She doesn’t want to but the argument leads to a scorching kiss and has both of them shaking their heads. Meeka is like “What the heck?  Why am I reacting to my BEST FRIEND this way?”  However, Asher finally admits to his true lifelong feelings to himself about how he feels about Meeka.  I loved the friends to lovers story line.  They are both a mess and wanting it but so scared of ruining the best friend status they have had for years.  They both want what the other has to offer but are so scared to want it. The story of them falling in love is an amazing journey.  AMAZING!!!

Now the story that is going along with them two falling in love is with the traffickers again.  Asher is undercover trying to bring own this area of the ring.  Asher and Meeks meet with the leader and CREEPY doesn’t even do that man justice.  Plus the little spark he has for our Meeka…yeah Alpha Asher is not cool with it at allllllll.

The twist in the book was great and totally something I didn’t think would happen…..I loved the story and felt the ending scenes were a little bit rushed BUT that gave way to the feel of what was happening all around at the end of the story!  It was ANARCHY!!!!  As always with me, I wanted a longer epilogue but that is because I am an epilogue girl!  I am also excited for Colby and Brogan because that man is locked up tighter then Fort Asher!!

#Review #Military Irresistible Seal Box Set by Amanda Heartly

synopsis

Smokin’ Hot Military Romance!
Get the Complete Series of Irresistible SEAL in this Exclusive Box Set!
After an unhappy childhood, Luke Carter joined the US Navy and has dedicated the last twelve years of his life to the SEALs. But the relentless overseas tours have taken their toll on his mind and body and now he dreams of what life might be like outside the military. Love, romance, his own space—maybe even a family he can call his own.

Juliet Morgan works in the fast-paced world of finance. Beautiful, headstrong and smart, she chooses her career over love and puts all of her energy into her new job—a job she was ‘persuaded’ to take far away from her beloved Manhattan by her rich, overbearing father. She’s not looking for romance, but feels lonely and lost in her new environment so she turns to online retail therapy to lift her spirits and accidentally stumbles across a dating site where she’s awestruck by Luke Carter.

The sparks flicker to a roaring flame with each sizzling message between them—then the battlefield nearly claims Luke’s life and he’s rushed home to the States. Although he’s only an hour away from Juliet, in his mind everything’s changed and his pride gets in the way of the love, passion, and happiness they both so desperately crave.

Can Juliet break down the walls of this irresistible SEAL, or are they both destined to a life of loneliness?

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

This box set has all three books of the series so you don’t miss one bit.
Juliet is a woman who has been up rooted from a life she loves in Manhattan, by her father, to a life she hates in L.A. She has decided to prove to her father that he hasn’t totally screwed up her life by learning to love her new city and job.
Luke is a Navy Seal deployed overseas, who has signed up for a military dating website to try and find himself some back home, whether it be a Ms. Right or a Ms. Right Now. Juliet finds the dating site purely by accident but signs up anyways, and when she finds Luke’s profile she’s drawn to him.
First off let me say HELLO HUNKY SAILOR!!! Juliet and Luke really start getting to know each other and to like what they learn.
I love how when Luke comes home hurt she goes to him, no they’ve never actually met until then but they’ve gotten to know each other so well she can’t help but go to him.
Heartly writes about how a wounded solider feels and what they go through mentally so very well, you can’t help but be there and feel it too.
Juliet and Luke go through and over come a lot to make it, but make it they do.
The only thing I do wish is that Heartly showed Juliet’s father just how great her life became, but since they didn’t get along I understand the reason behind him not being in the book other then the first introduction of him.

Twinsie Deb’s Review

Grit by J.M. Walker
Angel & Jay
MC & MILITARY – PERFECT
4.5 STARS

This is a story full of emotion, angst, and of course tons of grit. There are multiple stories going on with one common denominator, find out who’s taking the girls! It has a plethora of suspense, a surplus of humor, and ample sex appeal.

Angel is a Vice-One team leader and if he’s not on an assignment with his “brothers”, you can find him with his construction company helping to repair the King’s Harlot’s MC building. He’s all alpha, he’s dark and domineering, and he’s after Jay. Lucky girl! I found him easy to love right away. He’s a good guy with a huge heart. It’s just took the right girl to open it up.

Jay (Genevieve) is the president of King’s Harlots all woman Motorcycle Club. Wow, incredibly impressive. I liked her, but thought she could have been a smidge more solid. Don’t get me wrong, I think she was perfect in most everything, I just wish she would have swore more, or punched someone or something. I guess I’m a dork, but I just love those crazy fighter types! She’s dealing with a mountain a shit. Her missing sister, disappearing girls, and attacks on her MC. Now, add a holy hotness Military man and her sanity just went out the window.

The supporting characters cast isn’t too big. Those that bare mentioning would be Max and Dale. I found Max to be a pretty excellent friend. She seems to be dealing with some shit of her own (*cough, Dale) and could use her own book (eh em, JM). Dale on the other hand, he’s kind of a dick, but a dick you want to know more about… I suppose he could make a cameo in Max’s book….lol!

So to wrap this up. The storyline is excellent… MC and Military… great combo! The pacing is good, the dialogue flows, and the tension leading up to the climax was just right. Can’t wait to see the detonation that will be Max vs. Dale.
