Firefly (Redemption #2) by Molly McAdams

The next captivating installment in New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Redemption series.

As the Princess of the Irish-American Mob, there’s no shortage of men ready to help guard and protect me. To slowly suffocate me to the point of seeking freedom—a place where I can breathe.

Kieran Hayes has been saving me for as long as I can remember. It’s in his blood, and one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. Until my favorite trait became his biggest flaw, making me resent the man I love. An unwavering warrior, his love for me has been shrouded by those instincts.

Save Lily. Protect Lily. Hide Lily. Cage Lily.

What I wasn’t prepared for was Dare—the man who would set my world on fire with just one touch. He saw straight through to my soul, as though he knew I was desperate for freedom, and silently demanded my heart from the beginning.

And I didn’t expect Dare to be Demitri Borello—the reason for so many deaths in my family. A man who will take my life the moment he finds out who I am.

Despite it all, I’ll love him until that moment comes.

A fire will die if there is no oxygen for it to consume. Ours is rapidly stealing every last breath we can sacrifice to it.

5 Stars

Warning: This isn’t a romance, but instead a tale of love between two despairing people, from two different worlds, both aching for something more.

Debbie Reynolds is a runaway, New York City-bound. Living on the road comes with many challenges—fighting for her next meal, seeking safe places to sleep, and dodging men with less than honorable intentions, all while searching for meaning in a life she finds painful and pointless.

Damon “Preacher” Fox, vice president of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club, has been in prison for club-related crimes. As his release draws near, he begins to reevaluate his choices in life, realizing that if he stays with the club, this won’t be his last stint behind bars. Suddenly Preacher finds himself doubting everything he’s ever known, wishing for a life beyond the club.

When Preacher and Debbie’s paths cross, they find in each other a sense of peace they had been lacking. But life is about to catch up with Preacher, and Debbie, desperate to keep the one person who’s ever shown her any kindness, finds herself caught between forces far deadlier and more powerful than she could have ever imagined.

This is Debbie and Preacher’s story.

At the end, we should all go back to the beginning, if only to remind ourselves that we once lived.

Series: Undeniable #5

5 Crowns

Book 5 in the outstanding MC romance series Undeniable. This is very much an ongoing series and the books must be read in the order in which they were written.

Damon “Preacher” Fox is dying. Having kept his illness secret from the daughter he adores, she now arrives distraught and angry that both he and her husband Deuce waited until his final days to tell her. Preacher himself just needs her by his side, but he has secrets that he has always kept from her. Secrets that had an effect on her life, and he finally needs to confess them so she knows the truth about him, about her mother and about her family. So Preacher goes back to the beginning and tells her the story of how he met her mother Debbie, what she meant to him and things that he has never told her before.

Undeniable was a game changing book for me. Up until that point I had never read MC romance, so it blew me away and showed me that actually I liked my books a little darker, gritty and a love story that is twisted and not so straight forward. Eva’s dad Preacher has been there from the start. A formidable President and probably the only man to give Deuce a run for his money. Having said that when I found out that he would get a book, knowing that he was dying I wondered whether it was needed in the series or whether it was just a series filler until we got to the book that I know every fan of this series is waiting for. So before I go further, let me assure you that this isn’t a filler. This book is important because actually what has happened during the series and particularly within Deuce and Eva’s relationship all comes back to Preacher and decisions he made rightly or wrongly all those years ago.

Preacher and Debbie are an unlikely match. From different sides of the country and tracks they find themselves thrust together. Preacher is already the VP of the Silver Demons, but is out following a 2 year stretch in jail. At this point he doesn’t know whether to continue on the path he is on or cut loose from the restraints of club life. Whilst on the road he meets a runaway by the name of Debbie, and soon finds himself wanting to help this young girl who interests him more than she should. But life has a way of catching up with you and soon not just Preacher, but also Debbie find themselves drawn into the often harsh and political world of an outlaw motorcycle club. As we are warned in the synopsis, this isn’t a romance, but it is love even in the violent and seedy underworld that they live in.

It would be wrong of me not to mention the delay in this book because let’s face 3 years is a long old time. Madeline has got loads of stick for this, some completely harsh and uncalled for in my opinion. So the pressure for her on the release of this book must have been HUGE! This book had to be bloody good or the trolls would have a field day. Well, all I can say is she seriously hasn’t let us down with Preacher’s story. This book was so much more than what I was expecting and I loved stepping back into what is still my favourite MC series. MS seriously hasn’t lost her unique talent of weaving a story that links every book in little ways that you don’t see coming. Eva still kicks arse as does the aging Deuce, but it is Preacher that shines in this book. Who knew how loving, loyal and swoony the old boy was many years ago.

So having now finished a book I have waiting so long for I find myself waiting for the next. ZZ’s book has been a long time coming and I know that I am not alone in my desperation for it. I hope we don’t have to wait another 3 years, but if we do, well I know it will be worth waiting for.

He was the myth and the legend of our small town. But no one knew the truth... except me.

MeMy childhood was stolen by a monster. I’ve forgotten what love feels like. What happiness feels like. What hope feels like. I am numb.

HimHe’s possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. Scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. He doesn’t speak. He doesn’t smile. He hides in the woods like an animal. I should be scared of him. But I’m not. He’s the only one who has ever made me feel. And I want to make him feel, too. Everything...

** Can be read stand-alone.

** This is a slow burn romance. It is not erotica, nor are there lots of sex scenes. This is about two lonely, damaged people learning to trust, love, and find happiness. Their story does not revolve around sex.

** There is no cheating in this book.

** While the heroine was kidnapped and abused mentally and physically as a child, I do not give any graphic details about what happened to her out of respect to survivors who may read this book. This book focuses on hope and moving forward and I felt there was no need to include graphic details to get the point across.

4.5 Crowns

Book 2 in the Devils Wolves series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading Torn anyway because it is such a brilliant book.

Holly was taken when she was just 8 years old. Kidnapped and presumed dead, 10 years later she is found with her dog Poppy and the backpack that hold the fairytales that have kept her sane. Damaged and scared of the world last seen through an innocent 8 year olds eyes, it is the prince that saved her that becomes an obsession in finding her happily ever after. But life isn’t a fairytale and her prince is just as damaged as her.

Tyler has hidden in the woods with little contact from the outside world to punish his mistakes and keep a distance from his family that he can no longer face because of his selfishness. Damaged on both the inside and out, the scares he wears with disgust only remind him of the mistakes that led to tragedy and changed the path of his life forever. When he finds a young girl in a hole in the woods, little does he know the impact she will have on his future.

Pursuing a future means accepting and facing the past. Will Holly and Tyler learn to live with their ghosts? Or will they only ruin the happiness that they find in each other?

It all started with Torn (#1) for me. This is Tyler’s older brother’s story and I have to say it blew me away. We first met Tyler in that book and straight away I knew his story would rip my heart out, and man it sure did. We have had to wait a while for this book, but it is well worth it. This is a slow burn romance, a story of two seriously damaged people finding solace in each other. They are both tackling issues, but somehow together they find their safe place.

Tyler lives up to the town’s image of him. The local nutter/psycho with his death masks and sad existence, and that is what it is. He exists without a future, living with the regrets of the past. Holly sees right through him, she sees the real Tyler hidden deep inside, he is her prince. Fighting her own struggles to get past the horrors of the 10 years she was kept in captivity, Tyler makes her feel a person and not a victim. He is the kindness she craves and the safe place she needs.

So if you go expecting a hearts and flowers sex fest, you will be sorely disappointed in this book. No, this book is a beautiful story of love, redemption and absolution. It will break your heart whilst giving you hope as you follow 2 fabulous characters story. A truly heart-wrenching love story.

Carian Cole is a definite one click author for me. Her stories have a real depth and quality to them and she is one very talented storyteller. I look forward to reading Tanner’s story and of course more from her other brilliant series, Ashes and Embers.

 

 A must read book, series and author.

Sexy Motherpucker: A Sexy Flirty Standalone Romantic Comedy by Lili Valente

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.

WRONG.

Let’s back this up a sec…

Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.

A.K.A, not me, apparently.

The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.

***

Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.

I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?

I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.

But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

Almost Never by Amy Lamont

Son of an aging rock star, Declan Cooper is considered royalty on the Warren College campus. When he meets petite freshman Harper Warden, he dismisses her as just another groupie. He realizes his mistake pretty quickly, but despite his near-obsession with the premed student, he keeps his distance. The last thing she needs is the notoriety that comes along with being connected to his infamous family.

 

Getting blown off by the sexy and popular King of Campus is the kiss of death for the new life Harper hoped to make for herself at college. Her only goal now is to get into medical school so she can leave her past, and Declan Cooper, far behind. But when the plans Harper made are threatened, Declan might be the only person who can help. All she has to do is trust him with a few small things—like her heart and her future.

Bad boy MC meets educated girl, and what they mutually agree on as a one night stand, turns into scratching an itch, to friends with benefits and to their surprise… a whole lot more!

Tank is your broody, rough and single badass… he loves his life, and does not want to complicate things with a relationship.  He absolutely does not want an old lady.

Nicole is a college educated and beautiful woman.  She is good in the forever department.. and really only wants to have some fun with a bad boy.

Little do they know that their “arrangement” means so much and destiny has a surprise for them.

Gillian Archer’s MC series are definitely good for any reader.  They are not raw and violent like so many, instead you get a good story and great characters, and some drama.  truly lovely!

Mine?
I smile a devious, deviant, I’m gonna make you sorry you ever started playing this game with me smile.
And then I take her hand.
I lead her to the elevator.
We go up to my apartment.
I tie her wrists together with rope.
Raise her arms above her head.
And chain her to the ceiling.

Night Games by Alexis Anne

Baseball’s biggest player is about to be played.

I love women and women love me.

It’s not my fault I’m irresistible. Okay, I may be a little cocky too.

All I have to do is post a picture of myself shirtless with my cat, Snickers, and the women flock to me.

It probably helps that I’m good with my bat and balls.

 

A selfie, a smile, and I have them in bed—but never in a relationship.

Until Carrie entered the game.

She may not know it, but she owns me. And I’m not letting her go.

 

CARRIE

 

I’m a professional. No, not THAT kind of professional.

I’m an orthopedic physician for the St. Pete Mantas and my job is everything.

I love the game and I love my players … but I never fall in love with any of them.

Especially not players like Wes. Especially Wes.

 

He thinks life is one big game.

One sexy, romantic, and sometimes sweet, game that’s left me confused and little bit worried…

I may have actually fallen for the ultimate player.

 

I’ll have to beat him at his own game if I have any shot at walking away with my heart intact.

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!

Another amazing and beautifully written story by Elle… can’t wait for where she takes us next….

Prison.

The place where dreams fade and hope dies.

That’s what it’s meant for the five years that Garrett has been behind bars. But now hope is on the horizon and he’s daring to dream again: small dreams, small hopes.

Getting his GED would be a start. If only his prison-appointed teacher Miss Ella Newsome wasn’t so damn sexy.

As Garrett and Ella start to play a dangerous game, the price could be higher than either of them have guessed.

If you love a touch of the forbidden, then dive into this baby, you won’t regret it!

Behind The Wall is a teacher and student romance with a touch of danger and a hell of a lot of desire. Ella and Garrett are both likable characters trying to find the missing piece, they just never expected to find it in a prison classroom.

Another great read from Jane Harvey-Berrick!
