Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty.
Even so, she’s inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet’s soul. Which means she’s still searching for something. Searching for peace. Searching for the less…that’s more.

Deke Hightower lost everything at the age of two. He lost it again at fifteen. His life has not been about bounty. It’s been about learning to live with less, because there’s no way to get more.
Deke’s also watched all his friends go down to the women who gave them what they needed. He wants that for himself. But he knows that search isn’t going to be easy because he’s a rider. His home is the road. That’s the only place he can breathe. And the woman who takes her place at his side has to do it sitting on the back of his bike.
When Deke meets Justice, he knows she’s not that woman. She’s cute. She’s sweet. And she’s into him, but she’s got it all and Deke knows he won’t fit into that. So he holds her at arm’s length. Establishes boundaries. And Justice will take it because she wants Deke any way he’ll let her have him.
But when Justice finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game, Deke makes a decision.
When he does, he has no idea he’s just opened himself up to bounty.

She was off limits, But he couldn't resist.
There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years...
On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible.
Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.

Series: Dare to Love #6

So this book can be read as a stand alone, but it is part of a series.  I did enjoy reading it, but I think I would probably enjoyed it much more if I had read the other books first.

This book is about Tyler and Ella.  Ella is Tyler’s sister BFF.  They have known each other since they were little.  She has crushed on him for years!! One drunken night while she is staying over at Tyler’s parents home, she gets it in her inebriated head to show Tyler just how much she wants him.  Tyler being a horny young adult, on leave from the army, does not refuse a beautiful girl who crawls in his bed.  Especially because it’s Ella…  Morning after awkwardness scales into epic mistakes that separates them for years with lots of hurt and pain to fill their hearts!

PE circle 200

Tyler has had to deal with his very dysfunctional family and carry’s a dirty secret from his father that has caused him great harm.  He doesn’t believe he is any good for anyone, especially Ella.  So when his sister calls him and sends him on a search and rescue mission that places Ella smack dab in the middle of his life, he struggles with leaving her alone and making sure he repairs the damage he has caused her.

This book definitely takes you through a lot of emotions and drama, including Tyler’s family.  There are many characters included that are from the other books.  I think I would have been more invested in the story had I read them as some of their struggles are mentioned in this book.  You can definitely read it as a stand alone, I just think it would have been much better for me if I knew all of the stories behind this one.

She has been friends with Tahoe for while now.  She is pretty much the only one near him that has not had him.  They constantly seek each other out.  As if their souls know better than they do that they need each other.

This is not a story of “Instalove”.  This is not a story that makes your heart flutter throughout… it damn near drove me to drink!! lol  So many times the frustration of these bleeding hearts not mending was intense.  So just hang on to this beautiful ride and see the broken mend.

The entire Inferno Glory MC series in paperback (Leather & Lace, Pleasure & Pain, Torture & Agony, Death & Rage, Revenge & Love).
The day Harley Sonnick is released from a three year prison sentence for a crime she didn’t willingly commit, she returns to the only family she has left—the Inferno Glory MC. But the club’s president isn’t ready to forgive her for past sins and turns her away, forcing her to trust in a new club member who’s arguably the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on.
Colt Sawyer, a young military veteran like the other MC members, is elusive and doesn’t have much to do with the women throwing themselves at him until Harley comes riding into his life on her own motorcycle. Together with his best friend and fellow MC member Ranger, Colt will do everything in his power to remind Harley what it’s like to be pleasured by a man and make her feel at home despite the reluctance of the MC.
Things take an unexpected turn when Harley’s worldly possessions are ripped away, forcing her to rethink her future. But she isn’t a pathetic princess in need of saving and is reluctant to accept help. Prison made her hard, forcing her to guard her feelings at all costs. So when dark, blue eyed Colt does inexplicable things to both her body and heart, she’s forced down a dark path of passion and desire that threatens all the safeguards she’s set in place.

Love MC Books… this MC book is like a biker book in a blender!!

Sweet lord it is fast paced! Sort of SOA on a tilt-a-whirl! lol  Freaking love that it is about a tough biker chicky and in her POV.

So we have Harley who was the daughter of the founding member of they Inferno Glory MC.  She was framed and spent 3 years in jail.  She is now free, and out to get her life back and some revenge as well.  She is a HOT MESS!  She is emotionally broken and has no clue what to do and how to behave.  She gets herself in so many situations in less than a week that you honestly feel like she will probably be dead a day or two later.

PE circle 200

Thank God for Colt.  He is the hot alpha male that lays eyes on Harley the second she arrives at the compound.  She sees her and can’t see another.  He is perfect.. too perfect for her dysfunction. But is he?  Nothing is ever as good as it seems and Colt is hiding a trunkful of secrets that can destroy him and everyone around him.

Together they are sheer chaos, and there just seems to be no off switch on her crazy and his stubbornness.   They will either be perfect for each other or end up getting each other killed.  The twists and shockers in this book are fast and hit you like a sledgehammer… Not sure of it originally being a plethora of novelas, but is seems like every chapter is crazier than the one before it.  By about 70%, there seems to be a rhythm that starts flowing, and you get to breathe a little.  But it’s only to hold your breath because with this story, you are not exactly sure which direction it will take…

If you want a crazy ride and your brain blended with a super twisted story.. then read on!!

Gideon Cross is my fave broken character.  I know I know.. choosing Grey or Cross is like choosing Batman or Superman.  For me… Cross wins hands down!

In this final chapter of the Crossfire series, you get the culmination of a very complicated love story.  Gideon and Eva, to broken souls that together find strength and make each other better, heal each other and find the deepest form of love that exists.  Epic Love Story!

With that said, this book divided me.  The story of Gideon and Eva.. I absolutely loved!! Omg 5+++++ crowns.  It is the perfect ending to that love story.  We have witnessed Gideon grow up before our eyes and this story is very satisfying to me on how they are left at the end.

0%-75% in and I was a happy, cozy reader….  There was an amazing story line for them, and some other great story lines that had been developing that had me completely hooked to the book!  I was just amazed at where these stories were going!

Bam! The last 25%… just a complete rushed and felt like the author was on a schedule and did not follow through on the amazing twists these story lines were taking.  Like they needed to be wrapped up asap without fully giving the reader what could have been her best book of the series.  In all honesty, I feel that had this book been split into 2 instead of one, Book #6 would have been the best in the series.  Instead of fully going into more depth in the supporting storylines, they ended abruptly and then tied in a neat little bow.  This left me feeling a little sad.

Gideon and Eva’s story –  5++++++++++ Crowns

The rest of the book – 3 Crowns

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Also by this author: RoomHate

My name is ROSE NEWTON, and I sell my body on the streets of San Francisco. I’m what you call society's dirty little secret. On the outside, I'm in control, the woman who makes her own rules and gives nothing away for free. Inside, I’m broken and numb. Torn and shattered by my past, my life is nothing more than the lost fragments of what's left of me.
SHANE WEST represents everything that’s foreign to me. He’s brave, kind, funny, gorgeous and persistent. When fate brings us face to face, an undeniable attraction blazes between us. He becomes the constant I've never had and the only man I'll ever trust.
There is nothing simple about falling in love when you're keeping a secret like mine.
*Reader's discretion advised. Certain content might not be suitable for some readers.

This story is about Rose.  With a name representing beauty, you would think her life would be filled with it.  Sadly no, Rose’s life is fragile and full of thorns that have pricked her heart and soul.  She is so broken, that if she wasn’t as strong as she is, she would have been swallowed up by the darkness.  She is a prostitute.  She lives in the dregs of hell that most of us will never know.  She is a survivor! She has a broken support system who are all just trying to survive.

She guards her heart because once, although she lives in a very cruel and real world, she opens a little window and felt hope, fell in love.  She fell for the fantasy that someone would save her just like in a fairytale…  instead, she was broken even more.

So she goes about in meeting him as her, just a girl, not a prostitute.  They strike up a sort of friendship, he is relentless, but the secret between them is just too much.  She knows he would be disgusted by the fact that she sells her body to survive.  Who would ever look past that shameful existence and see the actual soul within that same girl.  Absolutely inconceivable right?

I loved this book, it is original, raw and beautiful.  The journey that Mrs. de la O takes you on is filled with pain, anguish, and heartache.  It is also full of hope and love.

Do yourself a favor and read it!

“This generation’s Cruel Intentions.” Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.
These Royals will ruin you…
Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone. 
Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.
Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.
He might be right.
Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

OMG what a hell of a read!!!  This book sucked me in and did not let go of me until it was completely devoured in a couple of hours and left me reeling with emotions!!

Ella is a high school girl who is struggling to survive in real life.  She is alone and trying to complete school and work at the same time.  She has recently lost her mother, and never met her father.  She is just trying to get school finished and make something of herself one day.

PE circle 200

Out of the blue, her dad’s best friend appears and claims her as her guardian.  This is not something that Ella can even fathom, so she runs.   Well the Royals will have none of that and finds her and whisks her away to a very privileged existence that she never knew existed.  Not only has she been thrust into a realm of wealth and power, she now has to contend with some very extremely hot, and dominating Royal sons.

They of course loathe her… believe she is a gold digger and will just use their father.  Ella will have none of it and makes sure she holds her own against them, but not without receiving a few scars of her own.

This fantasy world that the author created just digs its nails into your skin and will not let go until you read every letter in every word on every page! This type of book is not my usual.  I stay away of high school romance, but my co-princesses, Emma and Kelly insisted that I read it, that I would love it… and I am sooooooo glad I listened!!! This book is amazing!! Days later and I am still feeling it!  The cliffy at the end of this book is HUGE!!! MAMMOTH!! Please don’t let that stop you from reading it.. it is so worth it!!

Every girl needs a guardian angel—even if he wears black leather. In the first novel of her scintillating True Brothers MC series, Gillian Archer introduces readers to a sexy-as-sin biker . . . and the woman wild enough to tame him.  After dinner with the most arrogant man in the world, Jessica Miller is shocked when her blind date tries to maul her in the parking lot. Enter “Zag”: the brooding, bruising alpha male who jumps off his motorcycle and teaches the jerk a lesson he won’t forget. After getting one taste of a bad boy who lives on the edge, Jessica’s hooked. Zag’s willing to give her the ride of her life. But she needs to wrap her arms around his powerful chest and hold on—tight.   Zag knows firsthand that the True Brothers MC isn’t for the faint of heart. He only intends to show beautiful, innocent Jessica a few cheap thrills to satisfy her curiosity. But the more he lets her in, the more Zag comes to depend on her gentle touch to help heal the wounds that he’s been denying for so long. Now, a rival gang has set its sights on Jessica, and Zag must step up once again. He just hopes he can go the distance to protect the woman he loves.  Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

3.5 Crowns

This is the first book I read from Author Gillian Archer.

She has given us a good beginning for the True Brothers MC.  You all know how much I love my MC Books!!  This book was definitely a great foray for a new MC reader.  It is not as violent and insane as some of these books can be.  It has its definite drama and spice, but is a much less intense read than usual.

We have the story of good girl Jess who is on another mindless blind date her mother has set her up with… He’s a lawyer, handsome… and a total DUD!  And to make it worse, he is a macho can’t take “no” as no idiot who thinks Jess is playing hard to get.  Entrance stage right we get super hot alpha male bad ass Zag, who sweeps into the rescue of the damsel.  They are of very different leagues, yet this still does not stop them from getting to know each other… and I do mean in the biblical sense!

Enter MC drama that Jess steps in and it is all about protecting her, failing, and dealing with the after math of not only the drama but their to fast to furious relationship.

I am looking forward to reading more from this new to me author.

For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.
Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom.
After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind.
When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from back woods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

OMG I freaking loved this book!!! I have not laughed so hard reading a book in a long time!  I need to just devour everything Katie writes!

Romantic comedy just rocks! And the story of Olivia and Holden is one of the best I have ever read!

Olivia is not your common independent woman.  She is the co-owner of a funeral home and the town mortician and coroner.  A very accomplished woman, except in the love department.  There she is absolutely challenged, and as far as sex goes… she has a major curse on her!!  Because of this curse she has pretty much closed up the va-jay-jay shop, and to make matters worse, her mother is getting married.  BEFORE HER…lol  omg… seriously not the way to go when your mother is constantly on you to find a man.  So, in order to endure her mother’s lingerie and toy party and pre wedding festivities a couple of towns over, she promises her best friend to go out and finally get a booty call!

Princess-Elizabeth-300x252Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, a state detective equivalent to the FBI.  He is a hot and good looking and did I mention HOT alpha male.  He is not all caveman, as he is very bright, intelligent, and charismatic as well.  Guess where he is at just the right time?? Yup!! at the one run down bar in the same town that Olivia is going booty call hunting!

Possibly being the only non-inbred patron of this bar, Holden has a great shot at opening Olivia’s shop and many different ways…  but first, Olivia has to swallow her fear and step into the wild side. And what a fantastic wild night it is!!!  Olivia’s dry spell is drenched and she does the walk of shame and escapes into the morning light.

Well, of course that can’t just be it right??? No!  Turns out Tourmaline has its first murder in decades, and of course with a murder you need the coroner, and with an investigation you need a detective… BAM!  They meet again!

I don’t want to spill the beans with any deets on this story… I would just love to see Ms. Katie’s browser history in researching this crazy story, because, OMG!! She went where no one has gone before! lol Just a captivating, shocking and tears roll down your cheeks funny twist to a great love story!

You can’t miss reading this, that would be a damn crime!

Lust, love, and second chances.
Growing up in the fast-paced and rough life of a motorcycle club wasn’t easy. Cleaning up the mess his father had made of Vipers Creed meant sacrifice. Cade ‘Spook’ Baker had given up everything to bring the club life back to what it was supposed to be: a family.
The choices he made were not what he wanted, but they were necessary for the club as a whole. Second chances rarely came to Spook, so when his Trixie walked boldly into his clubhouse, the decision was made. Trixie would once again be his, this time for good.
Trix Lamasters was raised by a master—a master con. All grown up, she made her life solid by making it about her club, Sirens. But one bad business decision brought her to her knees, forcing her to call on the one person she had sworn she would never trust again.
Pasts have a way of not staying there. Things that were buried deep have a way of finding themselves in the light of a new day. Could something that had once crashed and burned for Spook and Trixie find a way out of the wreckage? With the odds against them, can they find a way to overcome the challenges, or will it all blow up in their faces?
**Due to content, mature audiences only.**

ahhhhh…. second chance stories are awesome!  But second chance stories in the MC genre are freaking awesome!!!

Cade and Trixie were in love in high school.  The happiest couple!  Trixie’s dad was an overprotective tyrant, and was not thrilled with their relationship.  But it didn’t matter, they had each other.  Well, until it didn’t.  Cade completely obliterated Trixie in the most dickhead move ever!

Tribe survived but never healed from Cade’s loss… she made sure to make her dad proud and became very independent.  15 years after not seeing him again, one of her employees does the one thing she has been avoiding.  Makes Trixie have to contact Cade and ask for his help.Princess-Elizabeth-300x252

Cade and his MC know the story behind his abandonment of Trixie.  It was something he had no choice in doing, but 15 years later he absolutely doesn’t give a damn.  She walked back into his life and he is not letting her go!

Ryan Michele does a fantastic job in this new series.  You will really get to know a lot of the characters and you just know the rest of the series will just get better!

One man.
One woman.
A past full of lies.

***

That girl, that special girl. The clichéd ‘One Who Got Away’ except she didn’t get away. She was stolen from me.
We started off as neighbours but quickly turned into something more. In what felt like a blink of an eye, I found myself in love and then boom. She was gone.
After that, my life went down a dark and lonely trail. I joined the club my parents ran from and kept my heart shut off from everyone, never entertaining the thought of a relationship. If I couldn’t have her, I didn’t want anyone.

***

I’ve been in love and have been loved but all too soon it was stolen from me. More accurately, I was stolen from it and my life hasn’t been the same since.
To an outsider, I had it all: money, nice house, friends, anything a seventeen year old could want, but inside I was dying. I hated my life with my parents until him and I hate the life I’m forced to live now but I just can’t bring myself to end it. Not if there is a possibility that he is out there and that one day I might have the chance to see him again.

***

What happens when Nancy and Bennett are reunited once again?
Will Nancy’s past ruin the still present chemistry between them or is it already too late?
Will Bennett be able to see past her secret and find a way to forgive Nancy?

This is a bittersweet story of a high school love gone wrong.  Of a future that was stolen from an up and coming biker boy and a young and beautiful girl.

Nancy and Bennett had a beautiful forbidden beginning.  Bennett moved next door to her, and as much as her parents forbade it, they fell in love.  They were happy and made plans.  Those plans changed one night when Nancy just disappeared without a trace.  Bennett being young, was pulled in another direction and although he looked for her, his resources were limited and instead she became the one that got away.

Nancy was living in hell.  Retribution and revenge hell for crimes she never committed.  Years and years went by and the only thing that kept her from taking her life was the memory of Bennett.  He never escaped her heart.Princess-Elizabeth-300x252

Fate takes its turn again and literally shoves Nancy straight into Bennett’s arms.  A nightmare gone awry, can they overcome their pasts?  Can Nancy heal?  Will Bennett grow up and live?  Her parents are not who they seem, and life has a weird way of shocking you and making things worse until they get better.

I am completely hooked on the Last Hangman MC series, and can’t wait for the next one!

This is the Wedding of the Century!!!

Rock wild child, Kat Saunders is marrying hot alpha MC Prez, Dane Reynolds!  Finally, after all they have been through, they will be married and happily ever after….. Right??

We get Jonas, the VP of the Savage Angels.  He is Dane’s right hand and best friend.  He has been alone for a long time and is now setting his sights (again) on Adelynn.  He loves her.  He had her.  He totally messed it up and has let years pass by.  Now the sheriff has his eyes set on Adelynn too!  You just know that a Sheriff and any MC do not get along, and throw a woman in the mix and it gets messy!!

Princess-Elizabeth-300x252Add in some crazy stalker from Kat’s recent past that Dane just saved her from.  Throw in a club whore who gets manipulated by said stalker.  Add into the mix an unknown enemy that is going to make sure Dane suffers every ounce of pain he serves, and you get all hell breaking loose in this book!!

I love how Kathleen Kelly can easily weave so many stories into one.  Its like reading a couple of books in one crazy ride of a book.  Thank God that book 4 is out and I can keep reading this incredible journey!
