Ellis Hughes has loved the girl next door since he was ten-years-old. She was his sun, moon, and every visible star in a clear night sky. She was also his biggest regret.

When a terrible accident rips Ellis and Harlow apart, it shatters both their hearts beyond repair. More than a decade later, Ellis has paid his penance, but his regret still lingers, and the love he once harbored for his childhood sweetheart has never faded.

What Ellis believes has been destroyed forever, slowly comes back to life, only for a cruel twist of fate to intervene. Knowing he cannot live his life without Harlow in it, he faces the ultimate test of selflessness.

He must sacrifice his own heart to mend hers.

GAH!!! Elle… you own my heart and soul… this book… is just… GAH!!! wow!

Elle has woven a tale so intricate, so beautiful, so raw… it couldn’t be less beautiful if she tried!

You meet Harlow and Ellis at the tender age of 11. Their meeting is pretty intense! especially for Ellis. :). This encounter brings them into a tried and true friendship that spans decades…. they experience soooo much together.. the happy and sad.. the pain and love. Most of those emotions seem to go hand in hand.. and it is so true for them.

Ellis and Harlow suffer through their love… Epic and beautiful.. and so very tragic. There is sooooo much I want to say about this amazing story.. but you just have to dive in… guard your heart, and bring the tissues!

Princess Elizabeth Reviews: Fury by Cat Porter

perev-465x365

Holy Hell…. Cat Porter has gutted me!  WOW!

Fury is one hell of a story!

It spans 20 years of the lives of Serena and Finger….

Cat writes very rough and raw MC books… she holds nothing back ever… but in FURY she takes it up to a whole other level!  You need you big girl panties for this one!

This book pushed all of my emotions to the melting point… you will cry, you will scream, you will have to step away for a bit because it is that intense.  You feel like you are right there with Serena and Justin… side by side experiencing the pain and the bliss.  They have been broken, almost to the brink of never returning.  They live in pain and fear, but when they get those moments together, its just beyond beautiful.  The sacrifices they have made in their lives, to survive, to be with each other… are so excruciating, and you just want happiness for them in the worst way!  Life is unfair, we all know this.  But to live it in the raw with them… Absolutely 5+++ crowns.

HOLY HELL! JL Drake has some wicked in her! If you have ever read her other books… you know she likes to shake things up and has a bit of a dark side! Well hang on for this ride because she unleashes it all in Trigger!!

There is no easing you into this story… She starts out strong and dark and wild and only moves it up many levels from there!!

We meet Trigger…President of the Devil’s Reach MC, a trained fighting machine groomed by the devil to kill at the flip of a switch. He can not be touched… its too much as he has never had anyone ever care for him… Oh you know how I love my broken souls… and he is as broken as they come!

In walks Tessa, into his bar, a friend of one of his trusted brothers, Brick. She is running from something.. that he knows. But she is different. Doesn’t even blink at the violence laid out in front of her within her first day. And it doesn’t hurt that she is sassy and hot as hell… but Trigger has no clue what lays beneath that beauty!

MC is my ultimate fave genre… and you all know I love my stories gritty and dark! Well JL Drake wrote this book as if it was wrapped up with a big bloody bow just for me because she hit every mark and surpassed it with the twisty turns and bloody suspense! And there is a Hotness factor here that surpasses all as it is completely entertwined with darkness which makes it all that much hotter.

I want to say sooooo much more about this…but I just can’t spoil it for you! Just know this… big girl panties are not even enough to have when reading this. If you love your MC stories… grittier.. and raw with a shock and awe effect thrown in for fun, then dive into this first book now!!!

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE...
Secrets never stay hidden.
The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.
Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined... with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.
Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the red-head from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.
As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.
Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.
Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

***NOT a standalone. MUST be read as part of The Hades Hangmen Series***

Another amazing book by Tillie Cole!

I breathlessly wait for each installment of the Hades Hangman series.  It is one of the most original MC series I have ever read.  Mixing a religious cult and a hardcore MC is insane!  And Tillie weaves an amazing tale.

In this 5th installment, we get the story of Sister Phoebe.  We have read about her already.  How she was the Head Sister of the Order.  She is carrying an insane amount of guilt on her blinded treatment of her sisters.  Her heart is heavy with a secret that almost breaks her.  Lucky for her, a Hangman caught her eye, and will save her or die trying.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen.  He has seen with his own eyes the devastation heaped on these women.  He has helped bring them to salvation.  There is one more he will save.  He sees his brothers in love with these souls… and he wants the same. Carrying his own heavy heart with a shattered past, at the very least, he will save his Red.

Phoebe and Ak are haunted.  They live in the past, and can not see a future.  They live day by day…but they are not truly alive.  The smiles they rarely smile are just a front.  They are dedicated and find in each other, the same broken soul.

Their journey is like nothing you have ever read!  So please read this asap!

M.N. Forty writes MC like no other. She makes it rough and dirty! Big girl panties for this series!

In this 3rd installment of the Sin City Outlaws Series, we get the story of the gritty tale of VP Felix and Alessandra, the cop who’s heart is in the right place, even if it isn’t always on the right side of the law.

These two souls are very very dark! Therein lies the attraction. Alessandra has some shocking truths slowly revealed to her that steals her breath away on how dark they are. There are no hearts and flowers for her story… she just doesn’t know it yet.

Felix… he is dark personified. He recognizes the dark in Alessandra and he is the master in her growth into who she really is… its a beautiful twisted blossoming.

M.N. Forgy truly gives us one of her grittiest and entangled stories… You must read this series!!!

Barrett
The name’s Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan—the one the press dubbed “Bare” after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At twenty-five, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father’s Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values. My “makeover” comes in the form of a fake fiancée who I don't even get to choose--one who is an uptight, choirgirl acting priss but also sexy-as-hell.
Addison
My latest relationship had gone down in flames, and I was drowning in a sea of student loans when in true Godfather status, James Callahan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Seven figures for seven months on the campaign trail pretending to be the adoring fiancée of his son, Barrett. As soon as he won the election, our engagement would be dissolved amicably for the press, I was free to ride off into the sunset a million dollars richer, and because of the NDA, no one would be the wiser. Sure, I’d never met the guy, but I’d been a theater nerd in high school. I could pull off any role from Lady Macbeth to Maria Von Trapp. But that was before I met my fake fiancé—the infuriating, self-absorbed, egotistical, drop-dead-sexy King of the Manwhores.
The race will be a fight to the death finish, and that’s not even the actual campaign.

I effen’ love Katie Ashley!!! from her MC books, her HEA’s, and now this political story!

In Running Mate, we get the delicious Barrett Callahan… he is the naughty son of the primary candidate for President of the United States.  He has an amazing heart.. just a bad boy reputation being the son of a very wealthy and powerful man.  Well dear old dad has a plan that will make sure that his little junior will not hinder the campaign!

Enter stage left Addison, the beautiful and intelligent campaign employee.  She has all the right qualifications for the part… oh! what part you ask?  Well that of fake fiancé to junior!  What could go wrong, right??  play the part.. get paid 7 figures, and in just a few months… disappear!  perfect, and super easy!  sort of! lol

Oh my was this a fun read!!! Katie always writes fun and very intelligent stories.  This had all the drama and twists you would expect.. and the hotness factor was through the roof!

Definitely read this!

Riddle me this...“I am neither dead, nor alive, and I’m not something little Madison can hide.But you will be dead, by the time this is done...the timer starts now, and the games have just begun…”
Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life. When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start. What she wasn't hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn't think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down. Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?
About this book: I need to admit something right now. The Silver Swan is f*cked. It might be the most insane story I've ever written with equally insane characters. Who knew? You know, when I started this book, it was supposed to be YA. I wanted to write a book that my sisters could read. A book that won't have people look at my mum like "damn... what sort of messed up shit happened to your kid?". The angst, the assholeness, the games, the f**kery, the WHAT THE F**KING F**K ARE YOU DOING???!!!... I cannot even.... anyway, this is a warning (and the only one I'll give you). It's crazy. I don't compare my work to my others, but this book is f**ked. It will most likely stomp all the f**k over people's hard limits (and not give a sh*t while it's doing it) and will make you second guess all the morals you thought you had.This most definitely is not looking like a love story right now... more like a..... I don't even....*shakes head* anyway, I apologise now. You asked for it..........

Also by this author: Razing Grace: Razing Grace Part 1, Razing Grace: Part 2

To quote Amo Jones and best describe this story perfectly:

The angst, the assholeness, the games, the f**kery, the WHAT THE F**KING F**K ARE YOU DOING???!!!…

ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY describes this awesome book!!!!

I have to admit.. I am a new Amo Jones stalker… I am devouring all the books!  And this one.. when I read the synopsis…. holy moly!!! Needed it like the air I breathe!

perev-465x365

In this story we have Madison Montgomery… she is not a stranger to tragedy.  Her name is tainted with a very violent crime of passion… No matter the amount of money that daddy has!  She is an outcast at school because of it.  Her father is recently remarried, and has moved them to another city.  All is as good as it can be in Madison’s world, except that daddy forgot to mention that she has a new step brother.

As she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, an elite private school in the Hamptons, she is immediately made aware that there is a very elite group of boys that run the school… they are part of the The Elite Kings Club and of course her new step brother belongs to it.  And of course, she catches the eye of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, and get me a cold shower asap, because this guy is HOT!

Now this story is dark, twisted and has an amazing storyline… well basically its like 2 storylines, because as you are reading about this twisted tail that feels like your brain is in the blender with all the mind f**kery, Madison is reading a strange book, about the past…. and BAM! if Amo Jones ties it all together in a fantastic cliffy!

I can not wait for book 2, Broken Puppet!!
