Animal (Royal Bastards MC)

Alec “The Animal” Walker
My best friend and I were inseparable as kids. That childhood bond turned to puppy love, and then pure, burning lust.
We were biker brats, teenage misfits who only had eyes and hands for each other.
But all that changed when our club found out her dad was a rat—an FBI informant trying to take down our empire.
He betrayed his club.
He betrayed his brothers.
He betrayed her.
He betrayed us.
To tarnish the brotherhood legacy with such disloyalty and dishonor comes with swift retribution.
Now, I’m forced to make a choice: my girl or my club.
This will destroy her.
Destroy us.
In order to earn my patch, I have to take a traitor’s life—his.

My Review…

Grab your helmets and prepare for the ride of your life!

This is the story of Alec (Animal) and Drew. Childhood friends, best friends that slowly became more over the years until young love turned into true love. To be able to find your soul mate that early in life is amazing. And written beautifully by Ms. Dukey.

Drew is a true child of a biker club, she is tough, she is fierce and she knows how to handle the intricate life of being a child of a club member.  Her saving grace is her friendship with Alec and it was refreshing to see when Alec knew when to come to her “rescue” and when to stand back and watch her take care of herself.  That to me is a true man!

Alec/Animal is club royalty.  He is the prince of this charter of the MC. He knows where his future lies and that is with Drew. When circumstances change and loyalties are tested, Alec truly becomes Animal. He becomes what he feels he needs to, to endure the loss he feels. He becomes the new king and he thrives in it.

As always, Ms. Dukey takes the reader and brings them in the world of her making.  I felt truly immersed in the life of the MC and the dangers and family meaning behind it.

A bit of thriller, mystery and intrigue will keep you guessing until the end and what an ending it is! I can’t wait to see what comes next!

BLURB:

BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped.

Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it’s the reality of my current situation.

It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She got a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I’ve known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have her stay at my place for a while?

Ha! Total disaster.

Now instead of going out every night with my teammates, I’m couch surfing and sketching endless photos of my best friend . . . but that’s the least of my concerns.

The disaster, you ask? I’m rapidly falling head over cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan.

And she has no idea . . .

TheChangeUp_teaser-3

PROLOGUE:

**MADDOX**

Have you ever said something you regret?

Something you haven’t forgotten about an hour later?

Something that sits with you, stews deep in your belly, and then seeps into your bones, burying itself so far into your marrow that all you can think about is the one thing you said . . . and how you wished you could take it back the minute it slipped past your lips?

That’s where I am.

Full of regret.

People always say, “Don’t regret anything. It’s what makes you who you are.” That was said in a whiney, nasally voice. Did you hear it?

Well, those people, the ones trying to spew rainbows and sunshine up your ass about blatant mistakes . . . yeah, they’re only saying that because they fuck up on a daily basis.

Think about it, what REAL person is okay with all their regrets? No one. There is always that one thing you did, that one time, that you will always, always, always think . . . “What if I’d done that differently?”

It keeps you up at night.

You wonder, what transformed, what took over my brain, to utter such words. To alter your life completely and send it down an entirely different course.

Yeah, my life has been fucking altered all right.

Everything was fine.

I was pitching one hell of a fucking season for the Rebels, my ride or die team. I was getting along with my teammates, even the infamous Cory Potter, who made a splash after last season. I’ll hand it to the man, he really is the boss. I was getting laid whenever I wanted, which is always a plus for a guy who has massive amounts of adrenaline pumping through him daily, especially on a pitching day. And there were no strings attached.

None.

Yeah, I might have a rotation of women I call, but any single player in the major leagues does. You need the outlet. Even the prestigious Cory Potter had some booty call numbers before he found Natalie.

I was living a great life, and then it all changed. And it changed fucking fast.

Before I knew it, I was staring into my fridge at dairy products not made from a cow, but rather from oat. What the fuck is that? Oat milk? Explain to me where an oat has a goddamn nipple.

My toothbrush is made from bamboo, which gives off a very woody, splintery taste, and I’ve been using toothpaste tablets instead of paste from a tube . . . because apparently, tubes suck up life in the landfill.

The eco-friendly toilet paper in my apartment disintegrates in my hand and is worthless, making bathroom breaks a fucking nightmare.

And there’s a goddamn three-legged dog in a suit and tie sitting on my couch that goes by the name Herman, or Hermy for short.

I don’t have any privacy, I don’t even remember what meat tastes like anymore, and “Hermy” has a goddamn staring problem. And the three-legged motherfucker, yeah, he’s stealthy. I find him waiting for me outside the shower . . . staring.

When I wake up . . . staring.

When I’m trying to make a goddamn tempeh sandwich . . . staring.

Every time I tell him to “get a life” or to “fuck off” or for the love of Christ “get a new hobby”, he doesn’t even bat an eyelash.

He just stares!

I can’t fucking take it anymore.

I’m losing my goddamn mind and I don’t know . . . maybe it’s because I haven’t had sex in what feels like forever, or because my burgers are now made of imposter “meat”, or maybe because I’m forced to do things I don’t want to do. Either way, something needs to give, because I’m pretty sure from all the vegan shit I’ve been eating, my armpits are just about ready to spring their own mung beans.

Christ.

One phone call.

That’s all it took.

One fucking phone call from a person I cannot say no to, a person who will forever and always be . . . my insanely beautiful and free-spirited best friend.

My Review…

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a baseball fan, but I sure am a fan of the Rebels!

Ms. Quinn brings the team back in this story of all-star pitcher Maddox and his life-long best friend Kinsley.

Kinsley has been Maddox’s best friend since they were five! That’s a long time and even when distance and life have separated them, they both are still are each other’s rock and safe place to fall.

Maddox’s image is the bad boy of baseball, but Kinsley knows his true self.

I was so invested in their relationship.  The trepidation of the both of them wanting more, the desperation and feelings of vulnerability on both.  To read Kinsely and Maddox navigate through their feelings was both beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking.

Now don’t be scared, there is also the fantastic humor and laugh out loud moments you come to expect from Ms. Quinn.  You won’t be disappointed!

Now like all her other stories, this can totally be read as a stand-alone, but as a superfan, like I am, I have read them all and it was so much fun to “see” past characters make appearances and love the team family come together to help a fellow out when it’s needed.

Like I said at the beginning, I am not a baseball fan. However, Meghan Quinn has made me a Rebels fan for life!

My Review…

I am always excited to see a new story by Claudia Burgoa!

This story is no exception! I love this story of Persy and Ford!

Persy is absolutely an amazing character.  The life she has lived, the things she has seen and done is just wow. Her upbringing was as unorthodox as can be, but it made her the phenomenal person she is.  Her career is everything to her, but there is a cost and that cost is what she struggles with the most.

Ford, the man with many names, he is all of those names and more.  He is reclusive and a bit of a loner. He is a bit jaded about the world around him and when he meets Persy, well it’s like putting a match to gasoline.  It’s hot, a bit scary but beautiful in it’s own right.

From pod casts, to texts, to face to face interaction, you get all that in this story it was so fun to read! To see the different relationships develop was just swoony and heartmelting.

The humor was fantastic and subtle enough to really make it more believable!  The secondary characters were absolutely fantastic and I hope to see more stories set in this world in the future!

Blurb:
“Everyone deserves a chance to be rescued.”

That’s the mantra I’m repeating when a well-equipped biker pulls over to save me. One glance at the scowl Crawford Doxe is wearing proves he isn’t impressed with the task. My efforts to change his mind deflate faster than the shredded tire at our feet. But disgruntled or not, my so-called hero still agrees to fix my flat.

I don’t expect to see Crawford again, but he’s suddenly very visible in our small town. Avoiding him would be my preference. That’s not how this story goes. For whatever reason, my daughter finds an ally in the broody mechanic. Denying her is something I do my best to avoid. I can only hope Crawford’s shine wears off before he tarnishes what little trust still exists.

As if the odds are ever on my side.

Commitments are a foreign concept to him. He doesn’t make any promises to try. That should’ve been enough for me to steer clear. It most certainly isn’t.

What follows can only be described as a disastrous clash of epic proportions.

But one indisputable fact remains. That lone soul has no plans of opening his heart.

My Review…

#BitterSweetHeat

This is a fantastic story, point-blank.  This is a story that is going to grab you from the beginning and wrap you up in it until the very end. I couldn’t put this story down until the very end and now I want more!

This is Crawford and Keegan story, with a heaping helping of Millie.

Keegan is a single mom to Millie.  Keegan is strong and after some bumps in her road, she loads up her life and Millie to make a fresh start.  Her friends are her family and the love she shows towards her daughter is total #momgoals!

Crawford is a loner, a recluse. It was sad to read how he came to be this way.  But when he helps out Keegan and Millie like a knight in dark armor, well whoo wee, grab a fan and a cool drink because the heat that fires up between them it’s gonna make you melt! His alpha tendencies go into overdrive and it’s gonna make you swoon!

I absolutely loved the interaction between Crawford and Millie.  They were kindred souls and their relationship was so sweet.

I loved the dialogue, I felt like I could actually hear the characters whispering in my ear as I was reading.  The secondary characters are absolutely amazing and I am so looking forward to a couple stories about them! (Please, please, please!)

Finally, the Healing Hugs!  I absolutely loved all the definitions throughout the story.  It made my heart feel like Ms. Rae was hugging it!

My Review…

Hot Jocks 7

It’s a bit bittersweet writing this review for the final book in the Hot Jocks series.

This is the story of the Ice Hawks rookie Jordie and the daughter of the head coach Harper.

Harper has grown up around the world of hockey. She has a very hard set of rules for herself about her interactions with hockey players. I had a bit of admiration for that. She tries hard to stick to her rules, even after she meets the winner of an auction that she was recruited to be a part of.

Jordie, the ultimate player.  He has some unresolved issues that have made him the man he is. When he bids and wins a date with Harper, well he starts feeling things that he hasn’t felt before.  He wants more and the fight that Harper puts up just makes him want her more.

This was a lovely conclusion to the series. It was fun to see all the past characters make appearances and to be able to read what has been going on with them.

Such a fun, swoony and smexy series! Well done Ms. Ryan!

Happy Release Day & Review! The Heart Thief by Ker Dukey

See My Review Below!!!

Title: Heart Thief
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: June 8, 2020

 

Monsters come in many forms.
Some want shiny new toys to play with—others want blood.
Mona Walters dreams of adventure, of a world beyond the shoreline she’s confined to. She yearns for vibrancy in her dull, mundane existence, but succumbs to the bleakness.
Until the necklace her sister wore the night she was brutally murdered shows up on her door wrapped in a neat bow, fueling her to run away and seek out the person responsible for stealing her sister’s life.
Mona wished for more—for color in her gray world.
What she didn’t realize was just how much more she would get.
And that the world outside her own was soaked in red—blood red.
The world she dreamed of is made of nightmares.
A rich, influential world of two brothers—and once they have her in their sights, they plan to keep her there.
Her father kept her secluded for a reason.
Be careful what you wish for.
There’s a thief out there, and he’s coming for Mona’s heart.

 

 

Cold burrows into my marrow. My self-preservation to seek out warmth has my feet inching toward a roaring fire in a grand room lavished with furniture and rugs. This place is huge, like nothing I’ve ever seen before. We live a minimal life with only the true essentials. Everything else is considered an indulgence, and that’s sinful. Apparently. 

A graze scorching with pain to my knee makes me wince, the torn material of my dress rubbing against the broken skin. “Hello?” I call out, inching closer and closer to the roaring orange glow of the fire. Shadows dance down the walls as footfalls sound just outside the room I was deposited inside by the man who said he was security. 

“Look what the tide washed in,” a deep rumble booms across the room. 

My hand wraps around my waist to ease the nerves. 

“This is private property. Do you want to tell me what it is you’re doing docking here?” The voice steps into the light, stealing my breath. 

He looks like a man from the stories Clara used to tell me at night when I couldn’t sleep. Dark probing eyes seek me out, making a quiver of excitement and fear ripple through my body. Powerful arms fold across a broad chest covered in clothes I’m not used to: formal wear, a suit. 

He has a confidence about him that commands the space he’s dominating with his size. He’s taller than me by a comfortable foot and a half. As he edges closer, the urge to run away sends a rush of energy to my legs. “Do you speak?” He narrows his dark orbs on me, bringing a hand up to loosen a tie around his neck. 

Moving toward a table set out with bottles full of liquids, he asks, “Drink?”

The dryness of my throat aches. A longing to quench a thirst I hadn’t realized I had has me nodding and pushing a meek, “Yes, please,” past my lips. 

The quirk of his lips doesn’t go unnoticed as he pours amber liquid into two glasses and hands me one. His fingers brush mine as I accept the offering, sending a spark over my skin. My eyes fixate on the contents of the glass. There are two mouthfuls at most. Maybe he can’t spare more. I smile a thank you and lift the glass, taking a sip. 

A harsh burn explodes over my tongue, making me gag. “Oh God, what is that?” I choke out, holding the glass out to give it back to him. A harsh laugh barks from his lips, making my stomach dip. 

“You’re one of them, aren’t you?” He steps toward me, closing in around me like a predator would prey. I shuffle back, bumping my hip against a couch. 

“One of who?” I frown. 

“Cult Island.” He scoffs, snatching the glass from me and throwing the contents into the fire. It hisses and snaps, flames jumping out in retaliation. “I should have guessed by what you’re wearing.” He smirks, his eyes lazily roaming down my body, making a blush bloom on my cheeks.

A Sinister Fairytales Novel

Mona is fighting to be free of the chains of her family’s skewed devotion and fights hard against the indoctrination of her upbringing. When tragedies strike, the urge to leave the island becomes overwhelming.

The Ward brothers….oh my me! Twins, tattoos, and piercings, oh my! These two embrace everything alpha, and they do it so well.  The way they embrace and protect Mona is just whew…

The mystery in this story kept me guessing until the very end. Just when I thought I had it figured out, Ms. Dukey shocked me! There are twists and turns throughout the whole story and I couldn’t put it down until the end!

My Review…

The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge

My oh my, how I am in flove with the Harrington family! Each sibling’s story just brings more and more happiness and swoons to my heart!

The queen of over 40 romance is at it again with Silver Mayor! It gives us vintage gals such a proverbial hug and fist bump (are those still cool?)!

This is the story of Blue Ridge mayor Charlie Harrington and Janessa Cruz.  From their initial meeting to the very page, their chemistry and relationship is full of sparks, heat and swoons!  I was grabbing my fan and a cool beverage while reading their story.

Charlie is a single dad, trying to be both dad and mom to his daughter.  He is worried about his image and the fight it was to keep him in the mayoral seat. When he realizes the specialness and love he feels for Janessa, he stumbles a bit on how to make things go his way and realizes sometimes it doesn’t.

Janessa is a single mom also. She wants a fresh, new start.  She is tired of just being the arm candy spouse, seen and not heard.  Her Latina heritage won’t let her back down for fighting what she wants.  She is a fiery habanero and  I admired how she navigates her relationship with Charlie, her daughter and her ex-husband.

You are going to get all the feels when you read this story! You get heart, heat and the swoons!

Excerpt
 
“Hello, this is Ashley.”
“Am I supposed to find your antics clever?” A growly yet refined voice barks in my ear. Colton.
“Actually, you’re supposed to say ‘thank you.’ Or are you one of those men who feels emasculated by receiving flowers?”
“No, I’m the kind of man who isn’t swayed by paltry attempts at bribery.”
Why would fate assign me such a monumental jackass as my soulmate? Clearly the universe has a sick sense of humor. “Good thing I’m not trying to bribe you, then,” I say, lying through my teeth.
“Aren’t you, though? Muffins, flowers, what’s next? Maybe a box of chocolates? Half of your peanut butter sandwich? I’m not your grade school crush. I’m a professional, Miss Murphy, and only work with other professionals, which you have demonstrated time and time again, you are not.”
I tap the speaker button on my phone and toss it down on my desk. This man makes me insane. “You are truly the most condescending man I’ve ever met. You don’t know me well enough to have formed these kinds of opinions about me.”
In all honesty, his extreme dislike of me hurts. A lot. Especially with how my heart and soul long for his. He means for his words to dissuade me—to break me—but every single insult and rebuff only makes me want to prove him wrong that much more.
“They say the truth hurts, Miss Murphy. It’s not my fault you’re ill-equipped to handle the pain.”
I clench my fists so tightly my nails dig into my palms, leaving behind little crescent-shaped marks. This man makes me want to commit felonies—you know, like murder. I wonder, since he’s my soulmate, could it be classed as a crime of passion? “I can handle everything you dish out and more.”
Colton makes a noise low in his throat, and I can nearly picture the sneer on his face. “Is that a threat?”
“It’s a promise, Mr. Banks. Do your worst; I’ll not only take it—I’ll return it back tenfold.”
“You don’t have it in you.” He laughs cruelly, the dark tenor of it winding around my heart in inky swirls.
“I’m far stronger than you give credit for.” Not to mention, my plan of attack is to repay his barbs with kindness. Something tells me that will knock him off guard far more than volleying back with harsh words or petty.
“You mistake strength for stupidity.”
“And you underestimate me.” I end the call before he can reply, crumpling down to my desk chair with my heart thundering and my pulse racing.
I’ll show that sexy, arrogant jackass exactly who he’s up against. I may be quirky and kind, but those two qualities are exactly what give me an edge. Colton Banks is used to sharks and snakes, but he’s about to be brought to his knees by a creature far more deadly—a woman scorned.

My Review…

Another fantastic, fast-paced story by Ms. Farlow.

This is the story of Colton and Ashley, a true opposites attract novel!

Colton is a straight-laced and unbending as they come. He is ruthlessly honest and unapologetic. When he first runs into Ashley he is put off immediately.

Ashley is an artist, a dreamer and she is in tune with love. Between the couples that she works with and when she finds her soulmate. Even when said soulmate is against everything that she is.

It was entertaining to read the push and pull between Colton and Ashley. I loved Ashley’s tenacity, and I also applauded her for standing up for herself and not letting Colton walk all over her.

When a surprise rocks Colton to his core, it is when you see Ashley truly shine and Colton see her for what she is worth. He realizes the depth of character she has and wants to know more.

Get your hands on this entertaining, full of heart and heat story by LK Farlow!

Happy Release Day & Review!! Asher by Carian Cole

See My Review Below…

Title: Asher
Series: Ashes & Embers #6
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 3, 2020
Blurb
I should have died.
I should have been forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.
A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.
I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

My Review…

Ashes & Embers Book 6

I have been waiting for this story since I first read about Asher, way back in the day! Now this can totally be read as a standalone and please don’t be discouraged by the series number of this! I am telling you right now….READ THIS!

Asher is Asher and Ember’s story, their long history, their love that encompasses and brings them strength, through the good times and the bad.

This novel is going to put your heart in a blender set on frappe.  I felt all the emotions in this book.  In fact I had to put down my kindle because I was afraid my tears (a full-fledged ugly cry) was going to short it out. I would catch myself laughing out loud, and I fell in love hard with both Asher and Ember.

This story is about learning to love again and the magic that happens when two soul mates go through tragedy. To look to a new future, to try to let the past go and be in the now.

Ms. Cole has an absolute magical writing style, she brings the reader into the world she creates and makes you feel like your part of the story.  You become invested in the outcome of her characters, you will laugh, cry, and cheer them on like they were your own family and friends.

This is definitely in the running for my “Best Reads of 2020”. Well done!

Ninth Circle.
Treachery.

A man with a seductive smirk and a body built for pure sin. 
The linchpin of a group of wealthy bad boys known as the Inferno.
 
A dark presence that repels as much as he attracts, Tanner is the poisoned apple I want to bite even when I know it will destroy me.
