One
accident changed my life.
One single
second changed everything for me.
In one
terrifying moment, everything I knew was gone.
Music is
the only thing that keeps me holding on.
When the
opportunity arises for me to tour with country music star, Scarlett Belle, I
take it.
An escape.
A
chance. 
Only it
isn’t enough to lift the shadows of my past.
And when I
meet him, dangerous and different, I can’t turn away.
He is
forbidden to me.
The
President of a Motorcycle Club.
A man who
could bring noise back into my soundless world.
But the
shadows of my past haunt me.
They linger
like a dark nightmare, reminding me that we can never be.
Because my
sins are far too heavy.
And my mind
far too broken.
Music is
the only escape I can allow into my life.
The only
one that I will let seep through my hungry veins.
But he’s
always there.
And he’s
persistent.
But if he
knew what I kept behind closed doors…no.
I must
continue my life just the way it is.
Without
him.
Breathing
in my nightmare.

Living in
my Hushed Torment.

Another Great Book from a go-to Author for a great read!!!

A great follow-on to book 2 in the series with a seamless flow into this book you will not be disappointed if you enjoyed the first book or in fact, if like me you love the writing style of the awesome Bella Jewel. I love the way she can transport me into her stories with ease and I am yet to find a book from her that I haven’t enjoyed.

Bring on Book 3! These Bikers are as HOT as all her Leading ALPHAS and trust me YOU want to get your hands on them!!!

I’ve been so looking forward to this second book in the Iron Fury MC series. I couldn’t put this down it is so good.

Amalie once had no hearing issues but a car accident robbed her of this sense and a lot more. Meeting Scarlett Belle and supporting her on the piano has helped in many ways. Malakai is the president of the Iron Fury MC and brother to Maverick, Scarlett’s boyfriend. Being around Amalie brings feelings Malakai isn’t used to experiencing.

Once again there is plenty of action and drama with a few twists and turns to keep you on your toes. The chemistry between Amalie and Malakai is strong and the Flames of passion are high. Where he is a tough, no-nonsense biker she is a softly spoken wears her heart on her sleeve musician. They balance each other perfectly.

The story is told from both lead characters points of view which enables readers to become more acquainted with them as well as go back in time to unlock Amalie’s demons. You definitely go through all of the highs and lows, with each character and the feelings they experience.

Can’t wait for Book 3!

SYNOPSIS:

James “Mac” Maccari’s career in the mafia is at a standstill. As the best solider in his Capo’s crew, all he wants is to be noticed enough to get Made in the Pivetti Crime Family. But instead, his Capo’s interests seem more focused on keeping his solider hidden from the boss, and every other Made man he can. Seemingly stuck right where he is with no chance of going up, Mac doesn’t know what will finally get him the attention he needs to earn his button.

Until she shows up and all eyes are on them …

Melina Morgan survives—that’s just what she does. She’s never been able to depend on anyone but herself to keep her safe and get things done. When a chance encounter puts her in a bad situation with the cops and the mafia, Melina has no choice but to put her faith in the hands of a man that not only infuriates her with his cocky arrogance, but catches her interest, too. Playing pretend in a fake relationship with Mac doesn’t seem all that terrible, until pretend turns real and bullets start to fly.

A man is nothing without his woman …

When the attention on Mac and Melina turns from bad to worse, and someone in the Pivetti Crime Family decides the couple needs to go, they know they’re fighting an uphill battle alone. But making it to the end alive means Mac could get what he’s always wanted, and Melina might find what she didn’t even know she needed.

Together, they’ll make waves the mafia has no choice but to notice …

This tight end is at the top of his game.
He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His, ahem, stats are perfect.
But I can’t fall for him.
He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?
This guy is their star player.

Review
A change up from this author but it works and is one entertaining story. This story centres around rivalry so it is aptly named.

Kayla and Jay meet at their friend’s wedding, both are in the bridal party of twelve attendants!
They feel the chemistry between them very quickly however unbeknownst to each other they go to rival colleges and both are involved with football. Jay plays offense, tight end, for Michigan and Kayla is the captain of the Ohio cheerleading squad. How do you become involved with a rival and make it out alive?

Some great one liners like this…
“Never thought I’d say this, but for the love of God, don’t swallow!”
Jay says it but it might not be what you could be thinking about. The overall humour works like a treat and you find yourself chuckling out loud in quite a few places throughout the book.
Sizzling hot passion between Kayla and Jay that really steams things up. Their love story is definitely not traditional but very sweet all the same.

Great descriptions of both characters and scenes that take you into the book, like a fly on the wall! I also learnt a bit about American football and cheerleading. I have to admit to being anxious and a bit on edge during the big game, this part of the story is so exciting and I don’t even follow football!

I totally recommend this book if you enjoy a laugh or two and a nail biting final!

Donna’s Review of Doggie Style by Piper Rayne

by Piper Rayne
Genres: Romantic Comedy
Title: Doggie Style
Series: Dirty Truths #2
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 20, 2017

 


Rumors never bothered me. If people want to guess at my sexuality because I design dog clothes for a living—let them. I know the truth.

I’m a red-blooded heterosexual male and just because I don’t have my tongue hanging out of my mouth around every female like my dog Cooper, doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the female form.

Now with Teegan Lowery in my life I’m suddenly panting right next to Cooper, hoping for a taste.

I hired her for her stellar PR skills, but she’s slowly weaseling her way into a spot I’ve kept a NO VACANCY sign on for years. Everything about Teegan screams unavailable. The last thing I need is another dramatic, high maintenance woman in my life. Believe me, been there and done that.

But the sexual tension between us is like a game of tug-of-war and neither of us wants to lose.

I love dogs.
She hates them.
Turns out, we both love doggie style.


This book was brilliant and I found myself unable to put it down. The story just flowed from the pages and kept me gripped and wanting to know the out come. I read this book in a day. Shopping and a trip to Belgium were involved but it didn’t stop me picking this book up at every opportunity.

Leo is a brilliant character. He is amazing a doesn’t care what people think and is so solid in his sexuality that’s doesn’t care to correct people, when they presume that he isn’t an alpha heterosexual male that’s dominant and commanding in the bedroom.

Teegan is one of the people who mistakes this about Leo but she finds his pull hard to ignore. Even though she works for him, she is drawn to the forbidden and completely want her “gay” boss.  Well I will leave the rest of the story telling to Piper Rayne as I am sure you’d prefer that.

Piper and Rayne are fast becoming a must read, straight up without thinking one-click authors for me and I highly recommend this book, series and other series. As they are light, sexy and funny as hell. You won’t be disappoint as I can honestly say I never am. Get clicking folks.

Reviewed by Donna

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.

Oh the humour in this is fantastic and had me chuckling out loud.

Dr Cameron Stanton and Dr Ashley Tucker are living the dream, together with their young son. Ashley is nearing the completion of her studies and Cam is a very successful cardiac surgeon. Cameron has his heart set on something else though.

The banter between the lead characters is fantastic, you almost feel like you are there with them. So much fun and more importantly so real! They work long hours and get tired and worn out just like everyone else.

The passion is off the charts and definitely shows how close the bond is between Cameron and Ashley. Her little digs about his not having a romantic bone in his body is not only funny but so much like conversations I’ve had personally!

Just when you think this series couldn’t get any better..it does!

Reviewed by Robyn


And this series just keeps getting better and better. What a fantastic and perfect ending to this part of the story. I can only hope that this series doesn’t end here. This story is continuing the same vein as the rest of the books and you find yourself laughing hysterically.

This is a great novella that sees Cameron wanting to bite the bullet on forever with Ashely. This book is a huge recommendation from me but I really suggest that all previous books including the Stanton serious are read first. You won’t be disappointed the whole Stanton world is amazing.

REVIEW

Mr Raphael North a multibillionaire recluse locks himself away from the world in his tall tower overlooking New York city after a tragic accident five years earlier… Beth a struggling law student is coerced by her best friend; into playing chess with the reclusive man, and this is where the fun begins. I liked the premise of the story and I can’t say I was disappointed; especially in the last 30% of the story when things really started to heat up and all the secrets that had been kept hidden for years came out. A good book and Callie is one author I will definitely automatically one-click.

SYNOPSIS

Law student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast. When she learns of an exciting opportunity—playing chess with New York’s most elusive billionaire—the offer sounds too good to be true. Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out…

 

Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.

 

Captor.

Curator.

Lover.

Enigma.

 

Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

Raphael North stands on the other side of the abnormally thick glass. He’s dressed in a plain dark blue t-shirt, and a pair of washed out blue jeans. His feet are completely bare. His hair is even darker than it was in his picture, if that’s at all possible. Almost curly, too. It’s then that I realize it’s wet—he must have just gotten out of the shower. There are small dark patches on his t-shirt where water has obviously soaked through the material.
He turns those startling vivid green eyes on me and I’m breathless all over again. It feels like I’m tumbling over some steep cliff face, a weightless sensation turning my stomach over as I fall. Inside, I’m back to wanting to flee the building. Externally, I’m praying to deities of faiths and religions all over the world that I don’t look like I’m about to slump in an unconscious mess on the floor right in front of him. My top lip begins to twitch—something that only happens when I’m really, really anxious. Without thinking, I press my fingertips to my mouth, as if I can put a halt to the twitching by touch alone. A strange look passes over Raphael’s face. A slight movement at the corner of his mouth. I can’t decide if it’s displeasure or amusement. Either way, the reaction is fleeting, barely noticeable at all, and then his face is a blank mask again. He places his hand on a curved silver handle on the other side of the door, and then pulls it toward him, opening it. There are no barriers now. Nothing standing between myself and a man whispered and gossiped about by an entire city. Screw that, an entire nation. I’m in an enviable position right now, but I’d gladly thank the universe if the ground opened up and swallowed me whole.
The first words Raphael North speaks to me will haunt me until the day I die. He angles his head ever so slightly to one side, then says, “Your toenail polish is chipped, Ms. Dreymon.”
Lord have mercy. His voice is deep but soft. It has no hard edges, but at the same time his tone is overflowing with self-confidence and command.
“I’m sorry, I…wasn’t aware of your no-shoe policy.”

Author: LeAnn Ashers
Genre: MC Romance/Suspense
Release Date: November 16, 2017 

Amelia

I’m fucked.

I’m fucked, plain and simple. How am I fucked, you ask? This tattooed, bearded alpha popped into my life and took it over, driving me insane.

Am I complaining? Hell no.

Do I love him? Yes, more than anything—and his daughter too.

Lane is everything to me. He came into my life when I needed him the most. I just didn’t know it at the time. He completes me. He is someone I have waited for my whole life.

Lane

I am so fucking fucked. This five-foot-two, feistier-than-shit woman came into my life and knocked me on my ass.

She brings out every protective instinct I have, and I’m ready to go nuclear if someone even looks at her.

I love two people in this world more than life itself: Amelia and my daughter, Tiffany.

Someone made the biggest fucking mistake of their life by trying to take them both away.

Game on.



Lane what can you say, he’s a badass biker… President of the Grim Sinners MC and loving dad to his 8-year-old daughter Tiffany! I loved the sweet connection between father and daughter it melted your heart that this tattooed hard arsed biker could be taking someone’s life one minute then be braiding his daughter’s hair the next! When Amelia fell into his life literally… they connected instantly. Their chemistry was electric and the fact that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other was so hot!! Amelia was a totally feisty, kick arse chick who took on anyone who wronged people she cared about; she had a heart of gold and just wanted to be loved. I adored LeAnn’s other series especially Butcher but Lane’s story fell a bit flat for me; I’m not sure what it was as I can’t put my finger on anything specific… I would still totally recommend LeAnn’s MC books as they are full of action, angst and hot, hot, hot tattooed possessive alpha bikers and who doesn’t like or want one of those!!

I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.

 

I was also in love.

My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.

To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.

For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.

It’s time to get my girl back.

When I show up to reclaim what’s mine, I discover she’s not ready to forgive me quite yet… but that’s okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.

What I do have a problem with is the guy who’s been trying to take my place. Because here’s the thing, I’ve waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way… and I’m done following the rules.
Wow what did I just read… Livvie and Jay have been through more in their relationship than most people will in their whole lives! From dangerous criminals, to witness protection, and to finally finding their way back to each other this book had it all… Another new author to me I will definitely now be looking out for more Anna Brooks stories as she writes hot as hell hero’s and kick arse, feisty heroines!!

Clay calls to me, and I scurry over to him behind the bar. “What happened?”
“Alcohol and testosterone.” He shakes his head. “Cops are on their way.”
My heart jumps.
My stomach flips.
My palms sweat.
And I wait. A few minutes pass and a cop walks in. Then another. Followed by a third. None of them the man whose face is burned into the cerebral cortex of my brain. I try to shake the thought of the hot cop away, but my mind refuses to comply, and my hormones go directly against the order.
I step out of the way as Clay exits the bar to talk to them, and I turn to head back to the hall, but then it happens. In slow motion, the front door opens, and he walks in. Commanding. Dominating the space he consumes.
He whips his head up, and our eyes lock. I stumble, my back slamming into the cash register.
Without taking his concentration off me, he strides in my direction. The intensity of his attention is suffocating. I sharply draw in a gulp of air because he’s going to be in front of me in a second. Close enough to touch. To smell again.
He ignores another officer calling him and comes at me, stopping even closer than earlier. His arms raise, and the rough callouses on his fingers abrade my cheeks when he holds my face in his hands. “Are you okay?”
My lips part. Words form on my tongue but won’t roll off.
“Livvie.” He leans down so he’s eye level with me. “You okay?”
My heart hammers.
Thud.
Thud.
Thud.
“Yes.” I practically moan, and we sway closer together. His thighs rub against mine, and he’s close enough that if I took a deep breath, my hardened nipples could seek relief from brushing against his chest.
A moment is all it takes. Time suspends and the air around us is without gravity as I float from a single touch. I don’t know exactly what it is, but something is happening between us. Something big.
“Ah! Motherfucker!”
A man yells, and I jump as Jay reacts before I can blink. He turns around, blocking me from seeing anything except his tense and muscular back. Grabbing me with one hand behind his back, he reaches for his gun with the other.
Shielding me.
A moment of panic surges through me, but when his shoulders relax and he lowers his hand from the gun on his belt, my head falls forward to land on the center of his back. His fingers flex on my hip, assuring me everything is okay—or at least he’ll make sure of it—and a state of lust immediately replaces my fear. So powerful it makes me whimper.
He turns around but remains close and lifts my chin, causing my head to tilt up so I lock eyes with his. “I need to see you later.”
“Okay.” I need him to see me. I want to see him, too.
“I’m off in two hours. Will you be home then?”
One hundred and twenty minutes. “Yes,” I whisper.
“Jesus.” He steps back and takes no shame in devouring me with his eyes. “Christ. Be ready for me, Livvie.”
Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.
