A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. 
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. 
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase. 
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dark, dangerous and raw… absolutely fantastic book! Watch out for what you wish for… as that monster may just come to life and then you’re running for your life! This was totally different from anything else I have read, I was totally captivated and intrigued from the start and was not disappointed at all. The characters were so dark and twisted.. each of them had their demons to fight, but the more time they spent with each other the light started coming into their lives… but there was still a monster lurking and both of them were the bait.

Where do I begin with this book, I will start by saying the book is brilliantly written and the first 30% of this book had me hooked. I couldn’t put it down but then I don’t know what happened it just started fall flat for me. There want enough going on really to hold me captivated. I carried on reading the book and although I liked the story and the characters, there was just something missing for me.

I would still recommend this books as everyone is completely different and although I was left wanting, someone else will absolutely love it, I am sure.

Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact. 

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. 
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. 
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. 

 

She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

He stalked me from the moment he saw me. He watched me day and night.

Butcher is what everyone calls crazy. They see all the tattoos and scars and to be honest, to most people he looks downright scary. He’s dangerous. He is after all the enforcer to the Devil Souls MC.

But to me? He’s just Butcher. I see him. I see who he really is. I see a man who will do anything for the people he cares about. I see the man who will protect and love me above everything else.  

I am just as obsessed with him as he is me. I will die for him and he would kill for me.  

What everyone doesn’t know is I have the same crazy inside of me…

Reviews

Well I can honestly say I really enjoyed this fabulous book! I have read one of this author’s books before but know for certain I will be going back to read them all!

Shay is an MC club princess who has grown up surrounded by males, she knows how to defend herself which is a very good thing. Butcher is the enforcer of a different club and is one massive, scary looking man. Once he sets his sights on Shay nothing sways him from claiming her.

This story has a bit of everything- action and excitement, humour, compassion and understanding, anger and some aggression which is mainly justified I feel.

Shay is one crazy, tough yet sweet twenty-five year old. Her antics really make this story so good. Butcher is scarred from injuries he sustained deriving as a SEAL in the navy and is an extremely tall, well-built man. His softer, gentle side is exposed through his relationship with Shay.

There are quite a few twists and turns in the storyline to make it interesting and they get your heart racing.

Above all, this is a sweet romance, different but sweet.

Reviewed by Robyn

 

This was a thoroughly enjoyable not quite conventional MC book. I absolutely devoured it in just a few hours. This book was a refreshing change and I loved that there was no trouble with club whores or nasty ex’s out for vengeance. But none of this detracts from the story.

The characters were amazing and the instant chemistry/ love was kind of refreshing, to be honest. Shay and Butcher were just heaven send and it was fantastic to read. This well-written story was just great and I really recommend this to everyone that loves a great HEA.

Reviewed by Donna

 

Loved it, another great MC read… My first from LeAnn and it certainly won’t be the last! Butcher and Shay’s story was action-packed and full of passion, possessiveness and family. Butcher was a strong, dominant, kind hearted man who vowed to protect Shay with his life from the very first smile she threw his way! Shay was an MC princess her father was President, she grew up surrounded by men who were possessive and very protective… she was feisty as hell and a kick arse heroine who fiercely defended anyone who threatened her or the ones she loved. I’m seriously loving her take on the MC lifestyle and can’t wait to see what else this series is going to bring!

Our Reviews of Beard Up by Lani Lynn Vale

Wow this book was everything I hoped it would be after reading the blurb! I wasn’t at all disadvantaged not having read the rest of the series maybe knowing more of their background would have been helpful but it didn’t take anything away from this amazing book! Ghost was just that.. ‘a ghost’ living in the shadows watching his past get on with their lives, until one day when another man appeared in his wife’s kitchen… this sparked a turn of events that would change all their lives. I can’t speak highly enough of this story it was dark, dangerous and full of thrills. I am definitely a fan of The Dixie Warden Rejects, I must now go back and devour the rest of the series!

Reviewed by Nat

Wow! This is one sensational story by this fabulous author who never disappoints her readers.

Told from multiple points of view, which is important, this complex story unfolds sharing reactions, feelings, and thoughts that give clarity. The characters are all deep and easy to relate to but the lead characters you can help but feel like they’ve touched your heart.

Tunnel was the husband of Mina and father of Sienna, now after six long years where he was thought to be dead Ghost, as he is called now, comes back into their lives.

I have to comment about Tunnel and Audrey’s parents…they are the lowest of the low and Lani Lynn Vale sure knows how to describe evil clearly. Just the thought of them makes me shudder!

At times the plot is very dark and action packed making your heart race while at others the humour leaves you chuckling, a wonderful balance. The love story behind this romantic suspense is uplifting and I can only recommend everyone read this to see for themselves.

5 Star Amazon Review – “Perfection! The definition of true love and sacrifice! ALL THE STARS!!!!”

5 Star Amazon Review – “My best book of 2017”

5 Star Amazon Review – “** Sweet Jesus– Couldn’t put it down ** Absolutely LOVED IT!!!”




Ghost [gohst] noun: the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision. He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing. Her.

She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Our Reviews of Lucky by Lilly Atlas

by Lilly Atlas
Genres: MC Romance
Title: Lucky
Series: No Prisoners MC Romance
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: MC Romance 
Release Date: July 31, 2017

After six painful months caring for her terminally ill mother, Kori learns the identity of her father. Desperate to connect with the only family she has left, Kori sets out to meet the man responsible for half of her DNA. There’s just one problem: he’s the President of the No Prisoners MC, Las Vegas chapter.

Raised as the step-daughter of an MC member, Kori has one rule when it comes to dating: no bikers. But following that rule becomes a real challenge when she meets Lucky, a member of her father’s club. He’s handsome, he’s sexy, and he makes her feel special.

Lucky has his own rule for dating: don’t do it. With a revolving door to his bedroom, he has no interest in a relationship. But what begins as harmless flirting with his Pres’s daughter heats up, until he can’t get Kori out of his mind. She’s enough to make him give up being single. 
But Lucky is holding onto a dark secret. He’s learned the Pres and VP are involved in activities that could bring down their chapter. He was nearly ready to act when Kori arrived. Now he must decide: move swiftly against his club’s leaders, or wait to give his relationship more time to develop? Either way, can he save her from getting caught in the crossfire?

This MC story a bit different in as far as their clubs had a policy of not getting into the drug business. I enjoyed the change up immensely. Lilly Atlas always delivers quality stories and this is no exception.

Kori nurses her dying mother until the end but discovers that her biological father is in an MC in Vegas. Moving from Florida she sets out to meet him however is dead set against forming any relationships with any bikers. Her mother had been married to one and Kori despised his cheating ways.

Lucky is a patched member of the No Prisoners MC where Kori’s father is the president. Things are not going as smoothly as Lucky would like them to go.

The character descriptions are very clear and make it easy to visualise them and the scenes. The chemistry is flaming hot and yet romance is still an almost tangible thing.

This book is packed with action-including some violence, tenderness, raw passion, angst and some fun moments where you do end up chuckling. It is fast paced and very easy to read.

I look forward to the next book in this series.

4.5 stars for me this was a great read… It was my first from Lilly and I was very impressed. I also wasn’t disadvantaged by not reading the first books in the series, I didn’t miss anything. The story flowed, it was gritty, action packed with several panty melting scenes that kept me wanting more! Lucky was a sexy, strong alpha male who doesn’t do relationships… he has a revolving door policy with women, that is until Kori walks into his MC and knocks him on his ass! She is feisty as all hell and ‘doesn’t do bikers’ she resists all his advances and gives back as good as she gets… one dinner, ‘not a date’ is all it takes to weaken her resolve and the two fall head long into a fast, hot and steamy relationship that leaves them both reeling… But evil lurks close to home and when their relationship and Lucky’s life is threatened Kori does the one thing she can think of to save her biker but in the process, she splinters his heart in two. Can love win out or will the evil that is entwined in the MC bring everyone to their knees! I NEED more!!

Las Vegas, November 2015

Three-fifty-seven a.m. Pretty fucking early. Why the hell he was awake, he had no clue. Maybe his female companion had inadvertently woken him when she crawled her sweet ass out of the bed and slunk into the night.

Lucky’s head was a bit groggy, but the intoxication seemed to have worked its way out of his system. A quick cup of the sludge his MC brothers called coffee and he’d be good to ride home where he could actually get some comfortable sleep. This damn bed was like sleeping on a pile of rocks, and sharp nails.

Now where the hell had his cut landed?

He found it dangling from the foot of the bed. Once dressed, he made his way down the dark hallway toward the main area of the clubhouse. The building was a seven thousand square foot single story old shoe factory that had been converted for their needs years ago. The front of the building served as the heart of the clubhouse. The space was wide open, with a massive bar, pool table, dart boards, and a number of plush, albeit questionably sanitary, couches. That’s where they partied, hung out, and generally caused a ruckus.

A long hallway led to the back of the building where offices and spare rooms were located as well as the giant meeting room, or chapel, where the club conducted its business. Lucky loved his second home, even if sleeping there was a less than restful experience.

He trod as quietly as his booted feet would allow so as not to wake anyone else who’d spent the night. As he neared the bar, loud, angry voices broke the silence of the early morning.

“How did this happen? Tell me how the fuck this happened!” Rebel’s smoke-roughened yell made Lucky wince. Their Vegas chapter president was not someone to piss off. Those who got on his bad side often found themselves missing a tooth or two. Just last year when their club brothers from Crystal Rock, Arizona were in town, Rebel had rearranged some punk’s face for having the nerve to step on his foot and not apologize in a crowded bar.

“I don’t know, Pres. Casper called me just five minutes ago. First thing I did was come to you.” Savage sounded just as agitated as Rebel. Another man you didn’t want to put a target on your ass. Like Lucky, he lived up to his nickname with gusto.

Lucky halted, unsure if he’d be welcome at this moment. If it seemed like they could use his help, he’d be more than happy to jump in, but something felt off about the situation. The small hairs on the back of his neck rose to attention. An issue requiring attention at four a.m. on a Saturday could only mean trouble.

Casper. Why did that name sound so familiar?

“Tell me exactly what Casper said. Word for fuckin’ word. And give me a fuckin’ cigarette. I left mine in my room.”

Silence descended and Lucky pictured Rebel lighting up and sucking in that first soothing drag. In eight years, there had perhaps been three times he’d seen Rebel without a cigarette between his fingers and smoke billowing from his mouth. His leathery face and raspy voice bore the marks of a man who loved his smokes.

“Spit it the fuck out, Savage.” Rebel sounded close to losing his cool. Surprising for a man who ruthlessly commanded respect and never seemed at a loss. Shit must be bad.

“Casper said they’re having ongoing issues with their supply from the cartel. Trust has been a problem since the Crystal Rock chapter ambushed them. Stealing the mil meant for the cartel pissed the Grimm Brothers off, big time. They liked working with Snake but hate Casper’s guts.”

Lucky remembered now. Grimm Brothers MC. Casper was the VP and Snake had been the president for a while. Nasty motherfuckers who caused serious trouble for two of his brothers, Striker and Jester. Snake kidnapped Striker’s woman and blackmailed Jester’s ol’ lady with threats of killing her only brother. The Grimm Brothers were the sworn enemy of the No Prisoners Crystal Rock chapter.

“Shit.” Rebel’s curse was followed by a loud boom that had Lucky jolting. He tiptoed a few steps further into the hallway. He should leave. Spying on the President wasn’t a smart idea, but now he itched to know the rest of the story.

“Did they get this month’s shipment? Thirty percent of that product had our name on it,” Rebel asked.

Wait. What? Lucky’s blood ran cold. His club steered far away from the drug trade.

“Most of it. The cartel held some of it back as punishment for Casper’s bad attitude.” Savage paused and without actually looking at him, Lucky could imagine his cold eyes turn deadly. “Said they have no problem finding new buyers so Casper needs to get his ass in line.”

Rebel let out a harsh laugh followed by a barking cough. “That scrawny asshole knows how much I depend on the cash from our heroin sales. He better get his shit together or the cartel will be the least of his worries.”

Lucky swore his heart stopped beating for a few seconds, just before it kicked up into a fast gallop. Rebel and Savage were selling drugs. Who else knew? Who else was involved? How long had this been going on?

Nausea rolled through his gut like a violent storm. His sister had died of an overdose when she was just seventeen. One of the reasons he’d chosen this specific MC when looking to prospect was the fact that they were fierce in their stance against involvement in the drug trade. Too risky and too much collateral damage. Or so he’d believed.

“Maybe we should consider cutting out the middle man. Deal with the cartel ourselves.” Rebel coughed. The man’s lungs had to be blacker than tar.

“Not a bad idea, Pres. Things ain’t the same since Jester beat Snake near to death. You think Casper finished the job? You know that greedy asshole was just biding his time until he could claw his way to the top and no one’s heard from Snake in the months since.”

“I need a drink. What a fuckin’ mess.” Rebel sighed, then the sound of liquid being poured reached Lucky’s ears.

Well, now he sure as hell couldn’t step out into the bar area. With the stealth of a ninja, Lucky crept back toward the room he’d crashed in. This was far too much information to process at four in the morning after a night of heavy drinking. His thoughts bubbled and swirled like molten lava in a volcano near eruption.

Now he got to choose between two shitty options.

Turn a blind eye and keep his trap closed.

Or run with what he overheard to someone who could help. Take it to the Crystal Rock chapter. Tell them his president and vice president were in direct violation of the club’s strict no drugs bylaw. Be a rat.

And in the MC world, there was nothing dirtier than a rat.

Wow another stunner of a book by JA! Completely captivated from the start, this was a dark, sexy suspense filled read… Two men, one woman and a love that is all consuming.. they needed each other as much as they needed to breathe! OMG the chemistry was explosive and the sex scenes so hot I required many a cold shower after and while reading this book! I can’t recommend this book enough and I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the next installment especially after that fantastic cliff hanger ending…

Wow! What a great book. I really don’t know what to say about this hot, dark and heartbreakingly twisted book. The story was different to what I have read before. I can honestly say that I love this authors style of writing, the way she tells a story is just really a breath of fresh air. This was probably her best book to date.

Without going too much into the story or the other characters as I feel it will ruin so much, that needs to be discovered by the reader. I will say be prepared to get hot, bothered and to cry your eyes out. Matteo, Tomas, and Zoe are just Wow and I will leave it at that. This book has so much to it. I read it in 4hrs as I didn’t want to put it down.  It is a complete page turner, with shocks and surprises aplenty.

This book is a huge recommend for me and one that will probably stay with me for a while. The next book can’t come fast enough. I need more of this crazy world that I am sure will surprise me at every turn of the page.

I’m an animal, a member of the Sin City Outlaws motorcycle club that isn’t capable of human compassion. So I’ve been told anyway.

Raven is my club’s prisoner. I’ve been ordered to break her. It should be easy given my violent history. But being this close to a woman—this woman—for the first time in a long time, is like sharing company with the demon Lilith herself.

She’s my perfect toy. Filled with a dark rage. Blessed with perfected beauty. Sinfully sweet and wickedly divine. Everything about her solicits the demons inside me

I want to hear her screams. I want those big, dark eyes looking up at me—silently begging me for mercy. I want to be her heaven…and her hell.

My desire for her is forbidden. My infatuation is illicit. I’m betraying my club.

And if the wage of my sin is death, then this woman is going to get me killed.

EXCERPT

“Kill me?” she whispers, her fingertips caressing my cheek. I want to push my body onto her, and feel her warmth against my skin one more time before I take her life and her body cools. I’m going to enjoy her. She’s dark and twisted.
I smile and bend down to get closer to her. Running my hand through her soft black hair I pet her, brushing her loose hairs away from her face. Fuck, I’m excited to play with her, hear her scream and watch her fear me. To quickly kill someone as pretty and smart as her would be a goddamn waste. Like breaking a toy before you got a chance to play with it, this needs to be done slowly.

“Oh no sweetheart, the fun is just about to start,” I threaten in a low whisper.

Something dark passes over her face, but she doesn’t break eye contact. It’s almost as if she sobers completely.

Suddenly a foot strikes me in the chest and I sail into the side of the van.

Reviews

Wow, just wow! After finishing this incredible story I needed to sit back and think about everything that happens in it! MN Forgy is a brilliant author and this is one is an example of her fantastic but scary mind!

Machete is given the job of trying to break Raven and discover the whereabouts of Cross, Zeek’s biological father and enemy of the club, easier said than done!

This is a dark and twisted love story with a sprinkling of suspense thrown in as well. The combination is a winner! Two screwed up people who see something special in the other person.

Vivid descriptions help readers to get a clear image and feel for each character. For much of the story I found myself wanting to know what comes next, thankfully this is a fast paced story which flows effortlessly.

This is a sensational series!

Our Reviews of Lotus by T.L. Smith

by T.L. Smith
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Title: Lotus
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Published: July 25, 2017
To break a heart is easy. 

All you have to do is reach in, wrap your blood covered hands around it, and pull. 

This happened to me. 

Two hands, both red as my hair, did this exact thing. 

Tore it away like it wasn’t made for me. 

Maybe it was his to take?

Because years on, with those same blood red hands, he still has it. 

In his hands. 

And he won’t give it back. 

But the real question is, do I want it back. 

He is dangerous, uncontrollable, and downright sexy. 

I fell for it all, but in the end, he didn’t catch me he let me fall.

TL Smith is a magician with words, she casts a spell and once you are under it you are escorted on a new adventure where anything could happen.

Lotus and Orion meet when they are teenagers and their chemistry is combustible. Bad boy meets good girl and second chances are the tropes but it is so much more.

Time moves from the past to the present and vice versa to give us an idea of the lead characters relationship and personal characteristics. Likewise the story is told in both Orion and Lotus’ points of view which helps us to understand each character in a deeper way. They are both simple people but deep at the same time!

The secondary characters are fabulous too and really help to make the story. That old emotional roller coaster ride is on the fast speed so as you are concerned about one thing very soon you are chuckling or sitting up straight with fear! You can’t help but like all of the characters, even Kama and Roan a bit.

I can not impress how entertaining and enjoyable all of this author’s books are but if you are new to her then here is a great place to start.

Dark, deep and totally mesmerising… TL has done it again with a book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go! Its full of gritty, unrelenting action and a love so powerful that has the two main characters drowning in each other all the while destroying who they are… So different than all her other books I’ve read but there is just something about this one that pulls you in and puts you under a spell.. I was totally invested from the first words until the last.

Reviewed by Nat

Omg, this book has to be one of the best books that I have read by this author and to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement. I have been back and forth with this review and I didn’t really know what I was going to write. Again we are taken on a very twisted yet beautiful story that is well written and leaves you wondering what the hell you just read. Which is the complete norm with TL Smith.

The Characters are great and their chemistry is completely evident from the first words. I although found that a little was missing from the back story but that’s just a personal opinion for me. Orion and Lotus are definitely one of the most passionate couples. I have ever read and you just knew that when she saw him again. That she would never be fulfilled in the life that she has created without him.

This story is one of heartache, lost love, wanting to fit in to what you believe you aren’t  good enough for and that’s what I loved most about it. If you are expecting a hearts and flowers love story, well I guess you have never read a book by the queen of twisted love before.

I can honestly say this book is a huge recommend for me and I again often wonder how such a story develops in the head of a normal person. But again it has and it will definitely not disappoint. A great story, that will take you in hell of a journey.

Reviews

What a story, series and set of characters. I am at a loss for words and it has taken me days to write this review. I was swept away with the emotion that I felt from this book. Although at times it felt to full of angst and I read it as hate. I stepped back and I saw this book through a different set of eyes.

This book was told brilliantly, told mostly through Elias Bricmans eyes and he was like a split personality that I equally love and hated. He was hurting through alot of this book and made some huge mistakes in my opinion but I think he realised that. Nadia was a funny character as were all the women that run through this series. Nadia was a strong women but sometimes she was a bitch for the sake of it and that ground on me a little but I guess when you come from her world you would be like that too.

The way the game played out this time was totally unexpected and genius for me. Jordan was the game changer in all of this as he was the player of players and he won for me. But being a winner isn’t always the best result as this book shows on more than one occasion.

The Turning Series has to be one of the best I have read for a long time and one I am sure I will go back to. This book and series made me a complete emotional wreck and this one imparticular had me crying so so much. A huge recommend from me. Without a doubt.

Wow dark intense and sizzling this third instalment of Turning had it all… Bric was down and out after losing once again when Quinn and Rochelle quit. That is until Nadia and Jordan came along, this was his chance to play and win. The chemistry between them all was electric they fit together and they burned up the pages… but there was also an under current of mistrust and everyone out for themselves. We find out more about how and what makes Bric the man he is and the ending… well let me just say its a doozy!

Excerpt

“Why are
you so nervous?” I ask Jordan. We’re sitting in Smith’s bar. The table is
elaborately set for a nice dinner, our glasses are full of expensive alcohol,
and our cocks are happy. Why does he look like shit is about to hit the fan?
“She had a good time,” I say, sipping my brandy.
“Yeah,”
Jordan says. His eyes are glued to the elevator doors, just waiting for her to
come downstairs. “But it was sneaky, ya know?”
“What was
sneaky about it?”
He shoots
me a look that says, Come on.
“She gave
in, Jordan. We didn’t make her do anything.”
“Right.” He
sighs. “But you’re what, just pretending we didn’t have that conversation this
morning? You know, the one where you said, ‘I’m gonna fuck with her head so
bad, she’ll spin like The Exorcist?’”
“It was a
joke.” I laugh. “All we did was make her feel good tonight. She loved every
fucking minute of it. Even when I choked her with my cock. She couldn’t get
enough.”
“That’s
because she was drunk on your dick at the time, Bric. But that feeling is gonna
wear off and she’s gonna run the entire night through her head, and then—”
“Then she’s
gonna realize we know what the fuck we’re doing. That’s all.”
“No,” he
says. “She’s gonna realize you’re just playing with her emotions. Like you do
with every fucking woman you’ve ever been with.”
“So?”
“So then
she’s gonna up her game, Bric. And this is gonna turn into a mind-fuck
shit-fest. I like her,” he says. “Maybe more than like her, OK? I don’t want
her thinking I’m like you.”
“You are
like me,” I say, getting pissed off. Why the fuck is he sharing her with me if
he likes her so much?
But I don’t
ask that question.
Because I
like her too. Just not in the same way.
“See,”
Jordan says.
“See what?”
I ask
“That
fucking evil grin you’ve got on your face. I know you well enough, Bricman.
Well enough to see the Machiavellian wheels turning inside your head. Do not
play with her emotions.”
“Why?” I
ask, my temper rising. “Is she some kind of fragile flower?”
But then I
realize this intrigues me.
“Stop it,”
Jordan says. “She’s not a puzzle, OK?”
“Then why
are we even playing?”
He huffs
out some air. Runs his fingers through his still-wet hair. “Because she’s not…”
He trails off.
“She’s not
what?” I ask. What the fuck is wrong with him tonight?
“She’s not
my type.”
“OK,” I
say, not really understanding.
“I mean I’m
not really her type.”
“Hmm,” I
say. “Do you love her?”
“No,” he
says. “Definitely not. But I like her. I could see myself playing with her for
a long time. And if you fuck it up, that won’t happen. You, of all people,
understand how fucking hard it is to get a girl you can trust in this game. One
who just gets you, ya know? We get each other, Bric. I realize it’s only been a
few weeks, but we know each other. I just like her. And we have an
understanding. I get to boss her around and be a dick, but she knows I’m not a
dick, right? She knows I’ll show up the next day and treat her nice and give
her a gift. She knows I’m just playing. We’re playing.”
“It’s a
game. Same as this,” I say.
“Dude, come
on,” he says, almost fully exasperated now. “You are a sick motherfucker, OK?
You know this, right?”
“Then why
am I even here?”
“Because
we’re good together, ya know. Not great. Yet,” he adds. “Not what you had with
Smith and Quin, obviously. But we understand each other. We work well as a
team. She liked that up there.”
“So what’s
the problem?”
“The
problem is you’re in a weird place right now and I’m afraid you’re gonna take
it out on Nadia. Don’t do that, OK?” He stares at me. “Just be…”
“Just be
your back-up?” I ask, huffing out a laugh.
He shrugs.
But that’s it. That’s what he wants. Don’t overpower him. Don’t take her away
from him. Don’t make her rethink her strategy. Just help him keep her.
It takes me
a minute to decide if I’m angry or not.
I decide
I’m not. I don’t give two fucks about this Nadia girl. And my goal really was
to break her. So I shrug. “Fine,” I say. “You want a wingman. Fine. I’ll help
you out, Jordan. But when I need a favor, I’ll expect the same in return.”

Review

Jag
3 stars

I enjoyed this book as a while but wasn’t very impressed with Jag. He was just a total arrogant pig and had no respect at all for Roxy. When they did get it together it felt completely rushed to me and a bit too far fetched.

I would recommend this book as everyone see different things in every story.

Rush
3 stars

This book is much the same as the first book. Manwhore who uses women to cope with his demons. He then falls head over heels quickly for his manager who has been in front of him the whole time. After alot of craziness they sort things out. Which kind of mad me crazy  as I don’t think, I would have been as forgiving as Jules. But everyone of us is different.

Again I would say you have a read and judge this for yourself.

Roxy
4 stars

This book is the book of the series for me and I am so glad that I carried in reading this series and not giving up. This book is real and heartbreakingly brilliant, there are no punches pulled with this book and that’s what I think is great about it. The tension and drama is so real that you just get sucked right in to it.

This series although its a hard slog it completely worth the read.

JAG

 

 Jag Steele.
Rock star. Womanizer. Addict. With endless nights of
parties and screaming fans, Jag can have anything he wants. And he wants
Roxy Slade, but Jag is the epitome of everything Roxy hates. His sexy
smiles and determined advances do little to shake her. And then she sees
a crack in his rock star armor, a broken past that she can’t help but
identify with. Is it enough to make her fall for this tortured rock
star?
An addict and his high.
A girl and her shattered knight.
Could you fall for the bad boy you know will ultimately break you?

 

 

 RUSH

 

 Sex is all I need. I don’t need love.
I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of
Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I
want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry
that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and
through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild
parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind.
Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all
Nook:

 

 ROXY

 

 When you don’t want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best
defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.
I
thought Jag Steele was arrogant and entitled, the standard dick of a
rock star. Funny thing is, people aren’t always who you expect them to
be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag
would hold any significance, but it did.
I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.Some
people may say our story was too screwed up to be a romance, but for
two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly.

He’s
sworn to uphold the law
His reckless behavior as a child caused the deaths of his entire
family. On the lonely Sydney streets, the orphan found friends. Found
“brothers.” Never again will Seattle Homicide Detective Heath Justice break the
rules and risk his new family. Order and discipline govern his life…until he
meets a curvaceous redhead. With two ugly murder cases to solve, the last thing
he needs is this disconcertingly lovely, whirlwind of chaos, yet…charmed by her
wit and intelligence, Heath can’t resist.
She
believes rules are meant to be broken
Deep into writing a murder mystery, author London Shaw is shocked when
she herself is implicated in a homicide. She can’t believe the
ever-so-authoritarian Detective Heath Justice expects her to simply ignore the
crime and go on about her business. Not happening.  Although the man’s whiskey rough voice,
cuffs, and masterful touch could melt any woman’s resistance—and does—she has a
craving to do a little investigating herself.
When all
or nothing is your only play
When Heath’s murder investigation threatens a far-reaching conspiracy,
everyone he cares for becomes their target—including the woman he’s come to
love.

OMG how hot are the Justice brothers! All hot, sexy alpha males, and Heath is no different… He is the confident, cool Detective who falls for his partners younger sister London. The red head author who quickly captures his attention with her feisty, fun loving nature. Life is never dull for these two.. Murder, intrigue and suspense fill their days. Who can they trust when even the good guys are not above suspicion. This was another great read in this fabulous series, one I would recommend to anyone with a love of fiercely protective alpha males and witty, fun loving, confident females. I’m really looking forward to what comes next.

Fiona Archer has done it again!

The second book in this series is every bit as good as the first one, Craving Justice! These hot, sexy alpha males curl your toes! The bond between the brothers is strong and yet fun too.

London Shaw is an ex-teacher who writes full time, YA stories were her genre but she is branching into mystery which certainly brings mystery to her door. Heath Justice meets his detective partner’s sister, London, in very unusual circumstances that are extremely humourous.

The chemistry between the two is immediate and quite explosive but also real, with opposing natures things get interesting. All of the characters are likeable..well the good ones anyway..Angelique I could give the brush very easily! 😂 I really enjoyed the cross over of secondary characters from the first book into the next, like Cleo the bookstore manager and Jinx the stylist. It is also great to meet new characters especially London’s grandmother. What a pip she is!

More intrigue and mayhem abounds in this east paced story, the ongoing mystery of an elite group tantalises us future, which A) answers some questions but B) brings about new queries.

I look forward to book 3 and the Shaw Brothers series.

Excerpt
Heath had grabbed the flask from the SUV’s back seat when he glimpsed a figure through the rear window. A woman, wearing a blue hoodie and black sweatpants walked to the edge of Derek’s driveway and gazed at the house’s front door. A few seconds later, she began walking swiftly down the driveway, constantly checking the front door.Was she worried about being seen? A possible intruder?

Since he’d parked closer to the house further on from Derek’s parents’ property, the woman hadn’t spotted him. Heath replaced the flask on the backseat and gently pushed the back passenger door nearly closed. He waited until she had disappeared behind the side of the house before following.

Careful not to make noise, he followed the woman down the driveway and watched as she stopped in front of a side door to the garage, which was separate from the house. With her back to Heath, she pulled something from her pocket and tried to jimmy the door’s lock.

The woman glanced toward the back of the house, likely checking to see if she’d been spotted, then continued her efforts with the lock. A soft hiss and a “dammit” indicated her efforts were unsuccessful.

Heath also couldn’t miss the curvy shape of her figure outlined so well by the soft black material hugging her gorgeous arse. One shown off to perfection as she bent to look closer at the lock.

A tiny squeak of joy, followed by her opening the door, signaled the possible intruder had crossed a line. It seemed such a shame to stop his fun. Nevertheless, duty called…

Heath pulled out his 9mm from his shoulder holster and held it out in front of him as he moved forward. “Police! Put your hands on your head and step away from the door.”

The woman let out a high squeak, dropped the lock pick, and spun around, eyes wide. Her mouth formed an “O” at the sight of his weapon. “Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness.” She covered her mouth with both hands before waving them in front of her, palms facing Heath. “It’s not what you think. Honestly.” Her gaze snapped to her left in the direction of the back of the house as if she expected someone to come out any moment.

“I said, hands on your head.” Heath commanded, satisfied when the woman immediately obeyed. “Come forward, turn around, and face the garage door.” He saw her close her eyes in defeat before she obeyed. Heath grabbed his cuffs and shoved his weapon back in the holster. With efficient moves, he had her wrists secured behind her.

“Officer, I can explain.” She sighed. “I mean, I know everyone says that, but really, nothing illegal’s happening here.”

“Good to know.” He pulled her jacket’s hood from her head. Red hair. No, the description didn’t do the color justice, but he only knew guyspeak, which would have to suffice to explain the bursts of deeper red in amongst the lighter strands, all held in a ponytail.

Heath patted down his suspect. No weapons. And he’d have to be dead not to notice the way his hands fit over her hips, the roundness of her arse. He wasn’t a sleaze, not by any means, but he appreciated a woman’s body like any man.

Taking her arm in a firm grip, he turned his suspect around.

Green eyes framed with long, thick lashes blinked up at him. “When I say nothing illegal, I mean it depends on your point of view.”

“My point of view is as a cop, which doesn’t leave a lot of leeway on a range of subjects.”

She frowned at him, as if he was being unreasonable. “That’s a rather rigid stance. Not everything is black and white.”

Heath wasn’t prepared to debate the point. “Your disappointment is noted. Now—”

“Hey, I’m sure you’re a busy guy. And, uh,”—she licked her lips—“you need to go protect the community. That’s an important role. Absolutely. So, you know—” She broke off. “Shoo. Anyway, we can put a line under this and start the day over.”

Despite her opinion of his so-called inflexible outlook on life, he couldn’t help answering. “We can, huh?”

“Totally.” She nodded, sending her ponytail bobbing.

Keeping hold of her arm, Heath looked down at her black canvas tennis shoes to hide his mouth twitching.

It was a safe bet the young woman wasn’t a hardened criminal. But whatever the hell she was up to, he aimed to find out. First he needed to phone Derek.

“Do you know the owners of this house?”

Her mouth dropped open, and her eyes grew huge in her face. “You don’t have to get them,” she rushed out.

“Oh, but I do.” He went to pull out his phone from his back pocket, and the woman jerked against his grip. She would have toppled over if not for him keeping his hold.

Oh, no, sweetheart.

He tightened his grip, reinforcing her captivity and moved closer, towering over her. “Lady, you could have hurt yourself.” The safety of suspects was important, and the thought of the little redhead causing herself harm propelled his alpha instincts center stage. “Resist once more, and I’ll use my belt to hogtie you.”

She drew in a sharp breath. What he didn’t see was fear. Not in her eyes or the way a blush stained the cool-toned white skin of her face. And swear to God, he felt her body soften against him.

An image of her hogtied flashed through his mind. Only she wouldn’t be in this driveway, but in his bed. Lying on his sheets. Her glorious long red hair spread over his pillow.

“What the hell’s going on?”

Heath looked over his shoulder. Derek stood at the side of the house, his hands jammed on his hips.

Dammit,” came from his suspect.

A look best described as misery—from the closed eyes and turned down mouth—covered her face.

“I caught a suspect attempting to break into your parents’ garage.”

Derek gave a dry laugh. “I’ve no doubt she’s up to something, but that’s no suspect.” He strode up the driveway, his frown reserved for the woman at Heath’s side. “Meet London, my baby sister.”

Heath swung his gaze to…Derek’s sister?

Those eyes, so wide and shocked before, were now narrowed with the promise of rebellion, even as she stood there—in his cuffs.

Ah. So bravado was her chosen defense.

Heath remembered the sweet color of her blush at his earlier threat of hogtying her.

Lightning might strike him down any second, but the woman intrigued him, even knowing she was Derek’s sister. The knowledge he didn’t have to call for a cruiser to take her to booking added a new dimension to the proceedings. Anticipation flowed through Heath. He was going to enjoy this visit, and for way more than pancakes.

Time for his prisoner to confess all.

What a great start to a series! This book was everything I was hoping for, it had hot, sexy, possessive alpha males and a funny, quirky leading lady! Once I started it was so hard to put down, I was captivated and intrigued and a little bit afraid to find out who was targeting Seth and his brothers. I cannot wait to read more about these Aussie brothers in the books to come… Awesome series can’t wait to see what Tempting Justice has to offer!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
