As the lead songwriter for Jacob’s Ladder, the last thing Gabe Renard needs is a debilitating case of writer’s block. After years of meaningless one night stands, he's finding it hard to pen the love-filled ballads the label is requesting. In an effort to clear his mind, Gabe takes his jeep off-roading in the North Georgia Mountains. When a wrong-turn leads to him getting stuck more than just creatively, he’s forced to call for help. To his surprise, the “Ray” who has been sent by Hart Wreckers to his aid is actually “Rae”—a sexy-as-hell spitfire in a pair of tight-as-hell jeans. The combination of Rae’s sassy mouth and rocking body might be the inspiration Gabe needs. But for the first time since becoming a rock star, his advances have been shot down.

Reagan Hart has never been a fan of musicians. In fact, just the mention of one might cause her to throw a tire tool. Her disgust for them started when she was just eight and her mother ran off with a traveling country singer, and it only worsened when at seventeen, her rocker boyfriend knocked her up before blowing out of town. As a single mother taking care of her family's collision business, Rae doesn't have time for hook ups, much less a relationship. And if she did make time, a musician would be last on her list, even one as good-looking as Gabe Renard.

Can Gabe find the words to prove not only to Rae, but himself, that she’s the only one for him?

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!

Katie Ashley, the New York Times bestselling author of Redemption Road and Vicious Cycle, returns to the dangerous and seductive world of the Hells Raiders motorcycle club…
After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.
Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.
Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.

4 Crowns

Books 3 in the Vicious Cycle series. You do not need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, however it does contain spoilers for both the previous books.

Benjamin ‘Bishop’ Malloy is the youngest of 3 brothers and is an officer in the Hells Raiders MC. Happy with the new direction the club is heading in and now starting to think about his future and what he wants to achieve, he soon makes friends with a hang-around Marley. But along with Marley comes his girlfriend Sam, and Sam makes him feel things he shouldn’t for a friend’s woman. Little does he know how much Sam will change his life in more ways than one.

ATF agent Samantha Vargas has a hate for bikers. They bring back horrible memories of her childhood. So when her partner goes undercover to infiltrate them she is happy to play his girlfriend and help bring down yet another lawless club who deal in drugs and guns. But as Sam digs a little deeper and get more attached to the man she should be investigating, she soon finds things aren’t always what they seem.

PEm circle 400

Will Sam bring the club down or will she lose her heart to a man that should be the opposite of everything she thinks she wants?

Book 3 in this series and as with its predecessors it was a really enjoyable read. If you are a hardened MC romance fan, then this maybe on the lighter side of the genre, but it is still a good read about family, values and above all loyalty.

I have liked Bishop throughout the series. A ladies man, he rarely goes back for seconds. Enter Sam and he is blown away. The turmoil he faces because of her relationship with his friend was a great way to show of a softer, emotional and loyal side to him. As for Sam, she has a lots of demons that still haunt her and taint her views on bikers. She however, cannot hide from the instant attraction she has to the biker she is specifically trying to investigate. He makes her question everything she has always believed and she soon learns that you should judge a book by its cover. Will she sacrifice her career for the love of a biker? I will leave you to read it and find that out yourself.

So if I was being overly picky I would say that the final 20% of the book felt rather rushed. I won’t going into it too much as I don’t want this review to contain spoilers, however I just wanted more reaction and more drama and it felt like Katie just ran out of pages. What it doesn’t mean though is that the first half of the book was slow; it most certainly wasn’t. I just would have liked her to explore the drama in the latter part of the book a little more that’s all.

 

So I believe this is the end of this series and I can honestly say I have enjoyed reading it and getting to know the Malloy brothers. If you are new to this genre, this series is a great and slightly gentler place to start. I now look forward to read what comes next from Katie Ashley.

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!
