Robyn’s Review of Cody by Jessie Cooke

by Jessie Cooke
Genres: MC Romance
Title: Cody
Series: Southside Skulls Motorcycle Club
Author: Jessie Cooke
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 16, 2017


This second book in the series has a lot going on! There is always some dramatic action or hot passion!

Cody Miller is finally being released from prison. Dax picks him up and takes him back to the MC clubhouse on the ranch. He hasn’t seen his girl, Macy, nor his best friend, Jimmy since he was imprisoned. Then along comes a childhood friend, Hannah or Harley, as he calls her. Things definitely become very interesting!

The story is very easy to read and fast-paced. It is mainly from Cody’s point of view but he does try to look at things from both sides. Even though there was quite a bit of action and drama it wasn’t as exciting as book 1.

Cody is a likeable character who definitely starts to grow up throughout the story and tries not to be so impulsive. It’s great meeting new characters as well as old ones especially Dax, who is such a strong and intelligent president.

I can recommend this book as a fun, entertaining read.

Books Laid Bare – “There were so many twists and turns in the story that I found the anticipation almost too much at times, but what I would suggest is that you make yourself comfy and dig in because as far as MC stories go this was pretty enjoyable and the characters certainly had plenty to say for themselves.”


Wendy’s Book Blog – “This is a fast paced, action packed storyline, with drama, secrets, and passion.”

Cody Miller has just been released from serving 8 years in prison for avenging the death of his brother.


His only family are those at the Southside Skulls Outlaw Biker Club, where the girl he loves lives, but he hasn’t heard from her since his incarceration and no one is telling him what he wants to hear… that she still loves him.

Macy Linden awaits anxiously for Cody’s return, and how he will react when he learns of her life now. 

No longer the boy she last saw, Cody is now six foot two and two hundred and thirty pounds of solid muscle, driven by the need to complete some unfinished business.

Macy has something else she has been hiding. A big secret that will threaten to drive them apart.

Can they still find the love they once had after all their secrets are revealed?

This is the second book in the Southside Skulls MC Series.
This is a Standalone Romance Novel but is intended to be read after book one – DAX – where characters in that novel are main players in this story too. HEA and No cliffhangers.
Intended for Mature Readers.

Jessie Cooke is a new author to me but I’m already looking forward to devouring the next book in this MC series.

This author really knows how to write sexy bedroom, bench & bike scenes that can heat you up! As well there is an exciting action packed drama that at times has you sitting on the edge of your seat!

Angel Brady is a young policewoman who would like to be a detective. She is asked to go undercover to infiltrate the Southside Skulls MC and agrees to be a part of this task force. DAX is the president of this club and the two hit it off immediately.

The story is written from both leading character’s point of view. It is a fast-paced, easy to read story right up until the end. The story is told in the present but also goes back months to the start of Angel’s involvement with the taskforce.
Clear descriptions of both inner and outer qualities of the characters make it easy to picture the story in your head.

I thoroughly recommend this book.

Robyn’s Review of An Unlikely Bride by Nadia Lee

Review


This book is the second half of Lucas and Ava’s story!

Ava and Lucas have always had a bumpy relationship but nothing nearly as roller ‘coasterish’ as in this story! At times I felt like sharing them! 😂😂 At other times I wanted to console and comfort them. To be invested in the emotions of a story is a good sign of a worthwhile tale told well.

Ava and Lucas are back in North America but not together. Career pathways mean both will have to learn how to work together.

I think a couple of the secondary characters are worth mentioning. Faye, an old flame and friend of Lucas’, isn’t going to give him up without a fight! Now this woman is an extremely annoying interference in both Lucas and Ava’s life, to put it mildly. Lucas’ mother is only briefly mentioned but the evil she represents is huge and I could have cheerfully push her down a tall staircase! Both incredibly described and used so well by the author.

An extremely enjoyable story and very easy to read.

AVA

The meek shall inherit the earth, they say.

Bullshit. Look at me now. What do I have? Nothing.

I thought I wouldn’t get past a second heartbreak. I was wrong. I never should’ve closed myself off in tears when Lucas told me he loved me. I should’ve had faith he wouldn’t betray me.

Regaining his love will mean throwing away my pride, my armor and laying myself completely bare. I have to trust that he won’t crush me at my most vulnerable.

The attempt will leave me bleeding. It might just kill me. But I definitely won’t survive knowing that I didn’t fight for what I wanted: my future.

A future with the only man I ever loved…a man more important than the very air I breathe…

LUCAS

You gotta put yourself out there to get what you want.

My ass.

I bared my heart to Ava. I begged for her trust, her love.

Instead she shattered my soul.

She’s circling me, her pretty eyes vulnerable. She won’t fool me this time. I’ll never give her another shot. I’ll break her before she breaks me…

Note: The last book in Lucas and Ava’s epic love story! No cliffhanger.
Nobody can be you. You’re the only woman who’s made me yearn.”
The quiet intensity of his gaze and voice ripples over me. It soothes the wounds of my soul, and I close my eyes to savor the warm, sweet moment.
“When I saw you for the first time at that restaurant, it was like seeing my fate. My future.”
I grin. “You liked my body. I remember you checking me out.” An understatement; he’d stripped me bare with his eyes.
“Nice bodies and pretty faces are dime a dozen. You were different.” He takes a bite of his lunch and lets the silence stretch for a moment.
“Then why did you act like you didn’t want me back? You never wanted to stay the night or take me to meet your family or friends. If they’d seen me before the accident, maybe things would’ve turned out differently.”
He hesitates.
“You don’t want to talk about it,” I say finally.
His fingers twitch. “It’s not that. I’m trying to figure out how to say it so I can avoid looking like an idiot…” He sighs. “Okay, it was my fault. Even as I wanted you, I was fighting it. I felt like I didn’t deserve that kind of love.”
Then I know. “Your mother.”
“What do you mean?”
I shake my head. “Don’t do that. We promised to be honest with each other, and you’re not. It’s not fair.”
“You’re right, it’s not. I’m sorry. No, I don’t want to talk about her.”
“Okay.” He isn’t willing to open up yet, so I’m not going to push it. After all, we can’t continue to have mutual respect and honesty if we refuse to let the other person be. I’m afraid to push too hard and ruin what we have. “Then can you tell me about the deal between you and your father? What the tabloids said… It’s true, isn’t it?”
He nods, his shoulders relaxing a bit. “Basically. What they didn’t publish is that the whole thing came about because Dad was furious we missed his Wedding Number Six.”
“To some woman who isn’t even half his age.” I saw that part too on the Internet.
“I’d be surprised if she finished high school. She’s so young she could’ve been our sister.”
“He must love her, though.”
Lucas snorts a laugh. “He can’t stand his wives. His ego was hurt that we didn’t show. Blake, Ryder and Elizabeth opted to attend their cousin’s wedding—it was his first marriage, after all—and Elliot and I chose not to go because after a while, you don’t want to be part of your parents’ circus. But Dad wanted to make a point, and he knew he could use the portraits to get to us. There were some complications with Grandpa’s will, and the paintings went to my father, who thinks we’re all bunch of worthless losers, and that our grandfather was too soft on us.”
“That’s awful. He’s your father.”
“A reluctant father. I’m sure he regrets he didn’t ask his wives to get abortions.”
I gasp.
“We were just bargaining chips in the divorces, although it didn’t work out the way he wanted with me and Elliot.”
“Why not?”
“Because our mother didn’t try to win custody. She preferred a fatter alimony.”
My image of Lucas as a child, growing up in abundance with everything a person could want, crumbles. Everything online portrayed an enviable life, and I accepted it all without question. “So what’s so special about the portraits?” I ask. “Everyone seemed to be focused on how much they’re worth, but that’s not it, is it?”
“Their monetary value isn’t even a consideration for us.” He jabs the air with his fork. “I’m not denying they’re each worth millions of bucks, but let’s face it. We don’t need the money. If we get them, none of us will ever sell them. The value—to us—is entirely sentimental. Our grandfather painted them when we turned eighteen, and they show the potential and greatness he saw in us.”
“They must be amazing. I wish I could see the one of you.”
Lucas shifts his weight, then reaches for his beer. “It’s pretty romanticized. Grandpa only saw the best in everyone.”
“I don’t see the best in everyone, but I think you’re incredible.” I finish the last of my fries. My mind is made up. “Let’s get married.”
He stares at me as though I’ve asked him to climb Everest in the nude. “Ava…we can’t.”
“What? Why not?”
“I didn’t go after you to get the painting.”
“I know, and that’s fine. I just think that now—”
“I won’t marry you. Now yet.”
Well, this is unexpected. I cast about for the right argument. “But that means your father’s going to win.”
He shrugs.
“Don’t you want to win?”
“Yes.”
I narrow my eyes. “You aren’t marrying anyone else, Lucas Reed!”
“Absolutely not. I told you already, you’re the only one for me. But I’m not marrying you either, not until the six months is up, because I’m not giving you any cause to doubt my love for you again.”
Now it becomes clear. “Lucas… I won’t.”
But he isn’t listening. “My brothers and sister will just have to get over it. I’ll find a way to make it up to them.”
“But you were going to marry Faye…”
“I didn’t love her, Ava. It’s not the same thing.”
“You’re right, it’s not. This way, you get both the painting and the woman you really do love. So what’s the problem?”
“If anything happens between us because of the damned deal…” He inhales roughly. “I can’t go through…everything…again.”

Review

This is the first story by this author that I have read however it won’t be the last!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fast paced second chance romance. The characters are so easy to relate to and empathise with as you get invested in the story.

Ava and Lucas have a brief relationship two years prior, now Lucas locates Ava and wrangles his way back into his life.

I have to admit there are times when I could have shaken some of the characters to try to wake them up! 😂 However there wouldn’t be much of a story line without the angst.

I look forward to reading part 2.. yes it’s a cliffhanger!

Robyn’s Review of Rough and Ready by Hayley Faiman

by Hayley Faiman
Genres: MC Romance
Title: Rough and Ready
Series: Notorious Devils MC #5
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 16, 2017
Cover Designer: Pink Ink Designs
Cleo Hill is a married woman, in love with a man she’s never really known—her husband, whom she hasn’t seen in eleven years.

Paxton “Torch” Hill is a Notorious Devil, a man who’s been wrestling with his personal demons since before he knew the horrors of war.

When a threat against his club means danger could be lurking around his estranged wife’s door, Paxton is determined to protect her. Yet, one look at the woman he left behind, and he knows his plans are about to change. 

The past is not an easy thing to forget, especially not for a woman scorned. While Cleo isn’t the innocent catch he once knew, there’s something about that rough and ready man she’s not sure she can deny.

After all—they promised each other forever. 

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Language, Sexual Content, and Violence

This is the first book by this author that I have read or devoured! It won’t be the last by a long shot! This might be the fifth book in the Notorious Devils MC but it can be read as a standalone easily.

Cleo and Paxton marry very young, eighteen and twenty respectively, then quickly after marrying Paxton, who is in the airforce, is deployed overseas. Eight months later he is home but in body only! He leaves Cleo and they don’t meet up again for eleven years!

Fabulous character descriptions really get you, the reader, into the heads of the characters more and more as the story goes on. Hayley Faiman certainly takes you through a gambit of emotions but the ride definitely worth it. Lisandro, although a secondary character, is worthy of a special mention. He is absolutely gorgeous and his loyalty and love for Cleo really shines bright and clear.

Plenty of mayhem and action as well as sizzling hot bedroom scenes. This book has it all including a novella at the end which is also a great little story.

Review
This book really started out to be a great story, it was well-written but although the build up was good. It just seemed it was far too rushed for me. I thought there was gonna be a big twist after the whole 10 days thing. It just didn’t have anything really after that and fell really flat for me. I really did really enjoy and liked the chemistry and overall relationship was the saving grace for this book.

Although this didn’t quite meet my complete expectations, it didn’t take anything away from this book. I do recommend this book, as we all have different tastes.

She was everything, yet she was nothing.

I didn’t expect her, never wanted her.
But there she was, everywhere yet nowhere.
She drew me in with her looks. Locked me with her first words, then stole me with her lust.
She was everything I didn’t know I was searching for, yet nothing I needed.
She was a conundrum, difficult and confusing.
One who was impossible of staying away from.
SR Teaser SR Teaser 2
This was a great conclusion to this great duet. As in typical TL Smith style it completely messes with your mind. Although the story was a little how I expected it to be but with a few twist thrown in. This book was a little heartbreaking with the situation Malinka finds herself in and it just doesn’t bare thinking about.

Connick is just everything you need him to be in this book and he is everything to Malinka too.  The other characters in this book make it for me. They pull this book along nicely and make the story just flow. The story ends a little abruptly for my liking but it doesn’t detract from the story at all. Everyone gets what they deserve in the end.

This duet is a great recommend from me and as usually with her writing. TL Smith doesn’t leave you disappointed.

Rosie
They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They’re right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister’s ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
Dean

They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I fucking dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

Talk about your emotional roller coaster! This book had me laughing one minute, teary then angry…and repeated the cycle throughout the story.

Dean, Ruckus, Cole was not my favourite character in Vicious, by a long shot but now?? Well let’s just say the revelations changed my opinion!

Rosie has Cystic Fibrosis or CF and knows her lifespan will be shorter than most so has decided to never marry! Dean is an extremely wealthy, successful businessman who flirts shamelessly with Rosie. This is their story!

The camaraderie between the four lead males is still very strong. The fun and sarcastic banter between the HotHoles is quick and helps to shape the characters. The bond is one that has lasted over time.

I found it hard to put this story down, it really is every bit as good as Vicious, book 1!
This fast pace, easy to read story is one I didn’t want to finish!

Well done LJ Shen on another fantastic book!

Awww how could you not fall in love with Dean Ruckus Cole after this book!! He has been one of my favourites since I picked up this series, the preppy, cocky, devastatingly handsome alpha hiding cruel family secrets behind his perfectly practised panty melting smile… His and Rosie’s story made me laugh at times, the outrageous one liners and banter between not only Rosie and Dean but all the other Hotholes were perfectly placed to give much needed comic relief in this emotionally charged story. I can’t get enough of Leigh’s books and this one was an emotional roller coaster that I didn’t want to ever get off…
Reviewed by Nat
Let me start by saying that I absolutely detested Dean Ruckus Cole with a passion before I started this book and nothing much really changed through the first few chapters. But let me just say this, my opinion changed so much that I didn’t even believe myself when I wrote this opening to my review.

This book was everything it said on the tin and so much more. Dean was an arsehole of the highest order but before this book, I just believed he was so because he was a self-entitled prick but that so isn’t so. He was like it for reasons I can not mention and will not but let me tell you, he was so much more than the idiot addict he portrayed himself to be.

This book focuses on Dean and Rosie. Rosie is sick, not just a little bit sick, she is dying and her time is running out. This is a battle of hearts and wills. It’s also a book of secrets and heartache. Of which I was left realing from. I can see why people chose the path they are on in life. But I can also see that they are each worth the fight.

I really laughed at parts in this book especially the epilogue but I cried and cried reading this book. Sometimes you just have to open your heart and let the right one in and they can fix you. Rosie was right she did love him first, people just didn’t see it or chose to ignore it

This book is a huge recommend from me, as is the whole series. You just cant help falling in love worth those Hotholes. LJ Shen has fast become my favourite go to author and I can honestly say I wait with baited breath for each book’s release.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Mateo

Emerson’s a sexy mom of three.

And if you call her a MILF, I’ll kick your a**.

She’s got a sex “to do” list, and I’m just the man to help her check some things off.

But this isn’t my story. It’s hers.

Unfortunately for me, her story involves an ex-husband, a kid that hates me, and a pretty nice shot to my nuts. She’s a woman who thinks too much, always with a plan, a list, but I’ve got a list of my own.

Emerson

Mateo likes to tease me that I have lists for my lists. But I didn’t hear him complaining when he stumbled upon my Sex Bucket List.

This is the story of how I brushed the cobwebs off my sex life, put myself back onto my list and not only fell in love with a younger man, but with myself, as well.

Grab a pen and make your own Sex Bucket List!

Review

WOW!! What a read this book turned out to be. I just love it when a book contains everything. When you go from laughing so hard you cry and then sob on the next breath, you know that this book is completely worth the ride and what a ride it was.  I am so glad this book was exactly what it said on the tin.

The chemistry that run through this book was off the chart. Mateo and Emerson were amazing, the game of cat and mouse was a dangerous game to play with a list like Emerson’s. This book contained so many great characters that I loved reading about. The children were great, the Ex (Gah, don’t get me started) Her friends and family made this story completely what it is. The way you can relate to the character is brilliant. It is very rare to read a book with characters in my age demographic and it was refreshing to say the least.

I so recommend reading this book and Prescott Lane has fast become a favourite author of mine. I can’t wait for more of this great story.

Excerpt

Our kiss is hard and rough, and it has my legs clenching together. His hands go to my ass, pulling my dress up slightly, lifting me up onto the edge of my desk, grinding against me. Wearing a wrap dress today was a good call. I usually wear wrap dresses because they are no fuss, add a nice cinch to my waist, and feel like pajamas. Easy access wasn’t one of the reasons, but I’m thankful for it now.

Wrestling with his shirt, I yank it out of his pants, desperate to feel his skin under my fingertips. His tongue finds my neck, and he kisses a path along my collarbone. I thrust against every hard inch of him. He pulls on the tie of my dress, and I wrap my legs around his waist. Picking me up, he pushes me up against the floor-to-ceiling window.

I can’t remember the last time a guy banged me up against a wall, or a window, for that matter. This is a perk of being with a younger man. Am I really going to do this? In my office? In the middle of the day? He must feel my hesitation because he lowers my legs to the ground, flipping me towards the window, his hard dick pushing up against my ass, his warm breath tickling my neck.

He whispers in my ear, “Number 19. Orgasm in a public place. I’m saying this counts.” I look down the few stories to the busy Atlanta street, the neighboring building. Roughly, he forces my legs apart with his foot then reaches his hand between my legs and pushes my panties to the side. “Your list belongs to me,” he says, his voice hard.

A new standalone romance from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills…

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,

But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.

Our second kiss…that one was REAL.

He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.

He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.

Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,

He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,

And he’d never get another piece.

A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist…

And I was lost.

I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.

I forgot we weren’t REAL.

Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist…

Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Get ready for breathtaking kisses and dreamy football players…


Review

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Another first for me… this story was sweet, it was funny and the chemistry between Max and Sunny was electric. Right place, right time and they both saved each other years earlier… they meet again in College and this is where the fun begins. A fake relationship, a football career and a kiss that starts it all… Can Max and Sunny fake it or will their hearts control the game. I totally recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a College romance with a twist.

EXCERPT

 

Max stalked over to the barrier that divided the stands from the football field and jumped it. The fans went nuts as he brushed past them, some not even realizing it until he was down the aisle. The Jumbotron followed him.

“Good Lordy, what’s he doing?” Mimi asked, clutching at her chest.

“I don’t know,” I said rather weakly, taking the chance to study him the closer he came. He was beautiful, his shoulders impossibly broad. To add to the distraction, his helmet was in his hand and all that dark brown hair was flowing around his chiseled features as if he had a fan in his face. My Viking.

“He’s coming over here,” Mimi commented.

He was. But why?

I stopped breathing . . .right when he came to a halt in front of me and knelt down on one knee.

Eyes the color of a wild ocean gazed at me.

He took my left hand in his right one.

“Max,” I breathed, my heart fluttering.

He gazed up at me. “Sunny Blaine, will you marry me?”

The stadium went wild. In a daze, I looked up at the Jumbotron and felt like I was watching this happen to someone else. Camera phones flashed all around us.

My first clear thought was I’ll kill him.

Aloud, nothing came out but a faint wheeze. Clearly someone had stuffed a giant wad of cotton in my mouth. Clearly I needed something a lot stiffer to drink than this Diet Coke. Clearly my fake boyfriend was a freaking raving lunatic.

He sat his helmet on the ground next to my feet, reached inside it and pulled out a small black box.

No, no, no!

The box opened, and my stomach churned at the sight of the large round solitaire diamond ring that was nestled on the black silk. I blinked repeatedly to clear my vision.

With deft fingers, Max eased it out of the lining and slipped it on my left hand.

I stared down at it. Then back at him.

I was going to murder the hottest quarterback in the country.

Kiss her, Kiss her, the crowd chanted.

We were the focal point of the entire world.

Max stood and tugged me up with him until we were standing. He slid his hand around my neck and pulled his face to mine. The sky was blotted out as he kissed me.

But I hadn’t said yes!

I wouldn’t say yes.

Not to a fake engagement.

The applause of the stadium was deafening. And his kiss—it was deadly. Despite my rage, my body craved him. His lips were hot, so hot, and my tongue met his with a vengeance. We kissed hard, and I nipped at him, my teeth scraping across his lips. But the only one who’d end up bleeding in this scenario was me.

He eased back to take me in, and with a final look at my face he gave a thumbs-up sign to the entire stadium. They went nuts, chanting his name.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered in my ear, letting his hand trail down my arm as he stepped back from me. He walked away backward, eyes on me the entire time. The announcers for the game told everyone who might have missed it that Max Kent had just asked his girlfriend to marry him, and she’d said yes. More cheers came as they replayed him on his knee in front of me with a giant YES written across the top.

I plopped back down in my seat. Frozen.

“. . . did you see her face? Shocked . . .”

“. . . most romantic thing in football . . .”

“. . . luckiest girl in the world . . .”

My face went hot. Even my ears burned. I wanted to crawl under a seat.

God.

What a lie.

The half ended and our offense came out to the field, snapped the ball, and Max threw it straight to Tate who ran it in for another touchdown. My chest constricted and anger churned in my gut.

I didn’t care who won.

I hated football right now.

Most of all, I hated Max Kent, and I was going to make him pay.

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Love Rehab by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 7th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Love Rehab.Ebook (1).jpg

Synopsis:

Ever wanted to fast forward to your happily ever after?

My name is Mackenzie Locke and I’m a loveaholic. I haven’t got a handle on men. Not even a little bit.

So I staged an intervention and booked me and my two best friends into Love Rehab, complete with a love shaman, horse therapy and a bunch of stones that promise to change my life. I’m not leaving until I’m cured.

Lesson #1: the first night of your stay, don’t have a one night stand with the hottest guy you’ve ever seen in your life.

Fail.

Lesson #2: make sure your one night stand isn’t planning on sticking around, teasing you, tempting you right back into his Levis.

Big Fail.

Lesson #3: Whoops. I forgot this one. I was too busy daydreaming about Blake McKenna’s mouth on mine and the way his five o’clock shadow feels on my thighs.

Epic Fail.

So maybe I’m not the best student. Maybe I wasted my time and money on Love Rehab. But I can’t help that I want to spend every minute with Blake, naked under the stars. Perhaps he can teach me every lesson I ever needed to learn.

Review:

5star

WOW!!! This was book gold and I loved every single word that this story had to offer. The heartache, pain, love and most of all the laughter. This book is a spelling binding romance that sweeps you off your feet. Louise out did herself with this beautiful tale of learning from one’s mistakes and never being too scared to be who you are and what you want.

Blake and Mackenzie were brilliant together from the off and although they thought that they were hiding there feeling from the world the only people they were fooling was themselves. This book is almost I would say a coming of age story. Of getting out from under what people want and expect from you and finally being yourselves.

I loved all the characters involved in this book and I really hope they will be getting there own story. Whilst reading this story I went on a journey with the character yes but it made me take a look at my life and I am sure it will do the same for every reader.

Louise Bay is a strong contender for being one of my all-time favourite authors. I just enjoy the easy flow her books have and the warmth that her words bring book after book. A huge recommend from me for a truly well-written book.

About the Author:


USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series, What the Lightning Sees and Calling Me. The novels and together the series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.

Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!

Free Falling by GL Chapple – Review

by GL Chapple
Genres: Romance

 

Title: Free Falling 
Author: GL Chapple 
Genre: Romance 
 


 
 
 
 
 





 
Maddie
Love shouldn’t hurt. 
Love should make your heart soar – not break it apart 
Love should make you feel safe – not broken and vulnerable. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Marcus
Anger shouldn’t be all-consuming. 
Anger at her for leaving me 
Anger at her for showing for me that life could be more – and making me crave it. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Two damaged people, free-falling through life. 
Two friends. Two choices. Two questions. 
If you’re unable to save yourself, can you really help anyone else? 
Can happy-ever-afters exist if you no longer believe in fairy tales?
 
 
 
 
Friends told me how sorry they were – but it wasn’t their fault. They told meI needed to move on – as if it were that fucking easy, and I could just

pick up and carry on. They apologised for my loss – as if I’d

misplaced an item of value, instead of the person that had helped

hold me together, all the broken, messed-up pieces of me…It

devalued her and everything that we had, and I hated that they could

make such stupid, thoughtless and ridiculous statements. I knew

they cared and I knew they were concerned, but it took all my

willpower not to punch them and tell them to fuck off and leave me

alone. I couldn’t give them what they wanted from me. I didn’t want

to talk. I didn’t want to feel…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
4-star
OMG! This book was brilliant and powerful and I loved it.  This book is a bit darker than the first two books. It’s about fighting your demons and problems, it’s about trying not to break completely and hope you survive to obtain your happy.

I can’t really say much about this book without spoiling it. Just know I loved Maddie and Marcus and I loved their story and how they cope whilst they fight their problems. GL Chapple is awesome and I recommend this series so much.

GL Chapple is a welsh author that strongly believes she was born in the wrong country. She lives for hot, sunny days (of which there are never enough in her country of birth and residence!) Despite this, she can often be found at the beach with her husband and two young children. She has always loved to read and write and promised herself, one day, she would have a book bearing her name on her shelf. She will read almost any genre and despite her belief that the kindle ranks in the top ten of inventions, she still loves cuddling up with a paperback. She writes what she loves to read about: stories with heart, humour and heat.
