#BookPromo #Freebie Control Us (Next Generation, #1) by J.M. Walker

-Zach-

She was innocent.
Passionate.
Fierce.
After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself?
I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart.
I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter.
I pushed.
She pulled.
And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her…
Myself.

-Luna-

He was quiet.
Withdrawn.
Intense.
Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now.
But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off.
He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to.
He shoved.
I grabbed hold and never let go.
If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up.
On us.

What if the bad boy really was the right guy?

Four years ago, Sierra and Mickey had a hot encounter neither could forget. But Sierra’s family would never approve of a match with the guy from the wrong side of the tracks—so she runs from his bed, trying to forget it ever happened.

Nine months later, her little bundle of joy ensures that she will always remember.

Mickey left town long before Sierra’s belly grew big, so her secret is safe.

Or so she thought.

Three years later, Mickey, now a famous rock star, returns for a wedding in their hometown. And when Sierra runs into him, she discovers she still has all those feelings.

He’s in town for just a little while. What would one more passionate encounter with the hot bad boy hurt?

It should be fine…so long as she can keep her secret…

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

The tangled webs we weave and oh boy did Sierra weave a web.  She had a one-night stand with her friend and then left in the middle of the night.  She held on to a secret for 3 years but when she came face to face with Mickey at a wedding things began to change. Sierra only wanted to be accepted by her mother but always fell short. She made up her mind she was going to get her degree and leave town.

Mickey is the sweetest Rock Star I have ever read.  He was determined to change his life course and not end up like his parents. Mickey had a plan and he stuck with it didn’t matter what anyone thought.  He was so great with Mia and the way he treated Sierra, swoon.  I loved when we got to see Mia and Mickey interact, they were so cute together. I also like seeing Sierra interact with the band members and their women.

Absolutely loved the entire scene of Sierra and Lance, her brother, at the truck stop. To see they had a lot in common and to have Sierra hear what Lance was saying to her was a turning point.  Sierra has 2 choices to follow her heart and do what will make her happy or follow what her parents want and be complacent the rest of her life. Although I was rooting for Mickey and Sierra to get together, I did like seeing Sierra and Austin together. Who does she choose Mickey or Austin? Does she listen to her heart or go with what her Mom wants? Both are great guys but Sierra will have to make a decision.

Michel Prince is the attending author.

Turbo Book 11 of The Steel MC Montana Charter by [Michel Prince, Wren McCabe]

In book eleven of The Steel MC Montana Charter: Porsche ‘Turbo’ DeGrassa isn’t one to sit still. While she’s always up for a challenge or a new project, she tends to take them on without ever completing anything. Never in her life has she had a place become more than a pass through to the next adventure, and yet, she’s now five years into living with the Steels in Montana and itching to find something or someone to finally keep her from spinning like a top through life.

For months now, Michael ‘Bugs’ Hanover, has been wondering why his daughter had become distant. The ordinarily bubbly eight-year-old now is reserved and quiet. When he discovers the unthinkable at pick up, he snaps, sending his daughter and him on a cross-country trek to hide out with former SEAL Thomas ‘Hack’ Creek and regroup. His daughter’s safety and future are his only concern. While justified by all rights to the wrong he committed, the law may see it differently. The last thing he needs is a stunning woman connecting with his daughter and him when the stop was supposed to be a harbor in a storm.

A wild woman, much like his ex that didn’t keep his daughter safe, was now the one the little girl ran to for comfort. For Porsche, stepping in with a broken child cannot be a temporary project abandoned for the next fun opportunity. While Michael needs to move on, Turnabout Creek offers him a life after service if he can find a way to stay out of prison. Will he strive to stay one step ahead of the law? Or will he fight for what is right and the chance to be with the Turbo charged woman dancing her way into his life?

Trigger Warning : Child Sex Abuse Discussed

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

GAH!!  This book!!  We have seen Porsche in several of the books as a back up character or a dancer at the Roadside.  In Dreamers book we got to KNOW her and her back story.  I was super excited to see her get a book and knowing it would be with one of Hack’s buddies, I knew it would be good!!

Mike, Bugs, finds out the worst news ever by accident when he is picking up his daughter.  He runs to his friend’s town knowing SEALS help SEALS.  Little does he know this group also helps abused women and children.

Porsche, Turbo, is loving her live dancing but maybe is wondering about more.  It seems more and more people are shacking up and getting knocked up so she fears drinking the water.  But Porsche loves her live.  She does have some trauma she doesn’t want to deal with annnnd she really hates to take her medication for her mental health, but she loves her.

She gets a hair brain scheme to help the town and Chief raise funds for a town firetruck which causes a lot of funny moments and scenes between the men and their women to count.

When Porsche meets Mike the chemistry is sizzling off the charts but when Mike’s daughter, Syd, begins to open up and trust this woman, Mike begins to want ot know more about her.

Guys the story about Syd is crushing but the story of her recovery, loyalty, trust, and Love is what makes this book.  The last 2 chapters…one had me in tears with laughter but the last has me in tears for heartbreak!!  I absolutely oved this story.  Porsche was one hell of a woman and I will enjoy rereading this story a lot.  If I wasn’t 110% team Baldy, Mike might have stolen my heart with what he did to claim his woman!!

#NewRelease #MM #2ndChance #SingleParent – Two Tribes by Fearne Hill

Two Tribes by [Fearne Hill]

It’s 1995, and troubled seventeen-year-old Matt Leeson harbours three passions: indie music, wartime history, and the posh boy he sits next to in maths class. Not in that order. One of those passions is closely guarded, along with a few other secrets Matt tucks away. Such as his abusive father, the cramped run-down flat he calls home, and the futility of his dreams to escape both.

Twenty-five years later, and plodding Dr Alex Valentine, recently divorced, is looking back on a life less lived. On his failed marriage and the dull bore he’s become, on the empty, lonely weekends stretching ahead. And, in a corner of his mind, wondering what could have been, if only a slender, raven-haired young man hadn’t so abruptly vanished all those years ago.

First love. Teenage love. It should be nothing more than an opening chapter, right? A short prologue even, before the real test of adulthood begins.

But what if that chapter never closes?

Not much has gone according to plan for mechanic, Pippa Freling, recently. With lots of bridges burned behind her, she decides to stick close to her sister and give Montana a try.
Things are looking up when she joins a local group of animal activists, buys an auto shop for a steal, and even tries her luck with the opposite sex. But it doesn’t take long before her hopeful new future is derailed once again.
This time permanently.

Maintaining tight control is the stronghold in Sully Eckhart’s life. It served him well during his years in special forces and has kept him out of trouble since. But his self-restraint stretches only so far whenever he finds himself faced with the one woman who has the ability to shake his determination. A woman he’s tried to avoid for months—since the first time she shook his resolve—but who now finds herself in the middle of a serial murder case.

However, when she not only ends up a person of interest to the FBI, but firmly in the crosshairs of a killer, he has no other option but to stick close.
And give up all control.

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

OMG this book CHANGES so much about the VC Warrior World and I loved it!!!

I have been a huge fan since I started reading the series way back when book 2 was released.  SO to see small changes in the world happen, I thought it was cool.  But this book punches a huge hole in the world, and I am stoked!!!

Viktor is pretty new to the series, so we don’t really have much of an idea about him except he is a witch hunter.  Well this book we get to know him and his brother Bishop a lot more.  We also see this heart broken vampire fall in love with a sassy human.  I mean, Lacey is hella awesome!!  She is a straight shooter and that kinda intimidates the guys at times but impresses the hell out of Jill…just say Cock right Jill??!!!

Viktor is doing everything he can to refuse these feelings he has for Lacey and she is so confused by the hot and cold but when things come together, and a miscommunication happens, he has to shut up and put up to claim his woman.

Lacey is the perfect addition to the crew.  She is a hacker by day and a caring as hell women by night.  She will give herself to help all she loves.  She loves fierce like all the other mates do.

This book we get more of the bad witch AKA Bonnie’s daddy but also some demon chick annnnnnd Dark Guardians….WHAT???  Charger has me saying HEEEEY *wink wink*.  I mean if Jared is going to keep being a jackass to me….errr….Tessa maybe I need….errrrr…she needs to walk away??  LOL

Friends this storyline is just getting better and better with each book.  I mean I am so excited and how the world has opened up because the possibilities are endless at this point!!!
