Ryan never expected to see Felicia Randall again, a woman with whom he shared a dark past and a dangerous secret. The first and only woman he ever truly failed.
Desperate and on the run, Felicia’s come to plead for his help.

“Mostly, I love you, Jamie Archer.”
“Jasmie Archer Hunter,” I correct.
“And thank God for that,” he says.

He pulls me close and kisses me, sweet and tender, as if sealing the vow between s all over again.

-Jamie

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my firs reads along with being a top favorite author. That said, yes I have read all of the Stark books from one to lasts. This is Ryan and Jamie story, well another one hehe. And with that I will say this can not be read as a standalone since this couple is already established. It’s a fun and exciting story about a part of their life. Which by the way I love about all this, we get glimpses of their lives after the fact.

It jumps right in of course. When a past of Ryan’s re-appears it really does shake everything up. After a spontaneous trip that Jamie takes, turns into a un-forgetting adventure filled with sizzling moments, mystery, danger, past and trust. Really intense and after my Bestie Amy talked me down with me threatening to throw things at people at the gym if it was what I though it was, I really really enjoyed it.

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

He’s ruthless. She’s off-limits. But he’s just met his one weakness… Now nothing will stop him from making her his.
Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him. But after a single glance at the pretty preacher’s daughter, he doesn’t care that his past is less than shiny, that he gets paid to end lives…or that she’s his teammate’s woman. He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart.
Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist.
Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?

RELEASE DATE: March 3, 2020

Not my first read by the author and she actually was one of my firsts many years ago. I have always loved her books and writing style. I am always honest and even if that means a favorite author of mine wrote something I did not enjoy reading. I think I was more frustrated/annoyed during this book than anything.
I don’t even know where to start on this, so I think I will start with what I did not find attractive to read:

The heroine is younger 22 and innocent. She is a preachers daughter and has family and friends around. I honestly can’t say that I liked her, maybe part of the story but definitely over-all, I did not like her. Immature, indecisive, a push over, christian which is fine but it was A LOT out there, again not that I mind or care to each it’s own but it was a lot, most the time I wanted to shake her to wake up, she reminds me of a little mouse that gets scared and does what other’s say and can’t make up her mind. I couldn’t get into it with her at all.

Before the Hero I’d like to talk about the most ANNOYING and PIT of this book character. Cutter, he is the heroine’s best friend and has been since they were little. At the beginning it was kind of okay he was playing the big brother and protective but then it became repetitive over and over again him protecting her from the hero, him stating he is her boyfriend. I won’t lie but I feel like he was more with the heroine than the hero. Absolutely after the first 3 times of repetitive, no I do not like Cutter.

Now the hero, there actually isn’t much wrong with him aside from the fact that he is a man what knows what he wants and goes after it. But here is the catch: he is going after someone that supposedly belongs to one of his co workers, Cutter. So that of course rubbed me wrong the whole time, it was sweet until I realized that 80% into the book and he still has yet to find out that Cutter is not the heroine’s boyfriend. So this whole time while he and the heroine show up in the book, to me it feels like cheating. And who’s fault is that? the push-over’s heroine of course. So the hero was a 50/50 .

All in all I honestly can’t say that I was able to fully get into it aside from not understanding that a hero and heroine can fall in love with the hero truly has no idea she didn’t belong to another man but to him he though she did yet he still fell in love with her. It was just a mess for me and I will not be reading the conclusion, the way it ended and the EXCERPT you get at the end, I don’t think I can endure her indecisiveness any more. Sad to say because I honestly have never met a book by Shayla I didn’t like. This was not for me, not to say someone isn’t going to love it. To each it’s own it’s why we review, I am just simply pointing out my opinions. That said, I will be reading more by the author just not finishing this one.

The book does contain exciting scenes, steamy one as well, angsty and the whole words were amazing, because Shayla really knows how to write, so aside from my dislikes and no connection, I might have enjoyed it a little more had the heroine not been the way she is in here. Not my flavor or style.

NEW TO ME AUTHOR & BOOKS! I read that blurb before the cover even came out & I knew I wanted to give this a try. Sounded something that I love to read!

This small town-romance had feeling some kind of way. It was pretty angsty, full of emotion, sizzling, sweet and funny! The hero and heroine are both two broken souls, that are not eager to jump right back in. When one was looking for solitude and quite the other found himself FOUND! It’s the best way I can subscribe it. I really liked both the characters and their story was warm, beautiful and romantic!

What I really loved about this story and book is that it was very real, some of the subjects, issues and so forth, really make me think, this is real. I was caught up in reading this beauty and will be reading more for sure!

RELEASE DATE: March 5, 2020

Not my first read by author and I have read enough books by her to know the writing style. This one captivated me because of the whole ‘hero and heroine’ were left behind to take care of a siblings baby. That said, I was rather taken back for the first few chapters. You really have to pay attention, and of course I had to remind myself a lot of the previous book(s) because it really jumps in and takes you back 2/3 year span but like a sling shot. Once i Reached about 25% it started to make more sense to me. There truly was a lot happening and Like I said, I’ve read the other books and I was lost for a little there. So here is my take on it, with me being confused because it was a lot at the beginning then you have the hero and heroine meet and interact first time after that, to it turning into “later time” and now I’m at the part where the heroine is in an actual relationship with another ma . I’m sorry but lately I have been reading this type of story and came to find out that I do not enjoy it. It takes the sweet romance out for me, reminds me that cheating is very close by and breaking it off with a person then right away being “attracted” to the hero and vise versa, doesn’t do it for me. again, maybe its just me but I really just, it rubs me the wrong way. And I am kind of off put by the whole ‘I have a boyfriend but think about the hero, or say things like: i don’t care about him’ when clearly she has it for him. I just could not connect with the heroine Sage, here. Sadly so far I have not had them interact (hero & heroine) aside from Sage hating Tucker all while still thinking about him and that’s that, Tucker being a funny, sexy and sweet but to be honest I am close to 60% and she is still dating another man, so sorry to say I got fully turned off and will leave it at that.

The bok does have a lot of heart, really shows a bond people can have and not be related by blood. The hero does get swoonie but towards the end. Really wish it was like that through out, therefore that is the reason I am giving this a 4 star and not a 3.5star.

RELEASE DATE: March 5, 2020

“I’m no savior. You can be sure of that. But I’ll gladly stand in the flames if it means keeping you from the fire.”

-Leif

His kiss was like candy. Crystallized brown sugar. Shark as a knife.

-Mia

Not my first read by author, she is one of my favorites & I have read all her books! I love LOVE her stand alone’s as much as her series! So I was super excited for this one, the blurb blew me away!! And the beginning…honestly, top favorite meets of hero and heroine!

Mia the heroine is a interesting woman, she is shy, a little thing, beautiful beyond words, a mom and strong. After a failed relationship (by failed i mena crashed and burned, been there done that a few times and had the t-shirt to prove it)I have a love/hate relationship with her and her ex that’s all I am saying. Well while Mia is Lyrik’s little sister (he is the famous ever so singer or I should say rock-star) which bu the way YOU WILL ALSO LOVE. When danger comes knocking on her door, there isn’t anything more she can do then be close to the one person that has always been there for her and always protected her, her big brother. Moving her kids to Georgia, she can’t believe that she stumbles upon the mystery man she met at a LA party she attended at her brother’s. It was a dark meet, two strangers found themselves in the same room, same time, lost but looking for something. One with big daemons daunting him and the other likewise but in a different sense. It was really ‘dark romance’ type of meet I have to say, sensual, sexy, dangerous…she was running away from danger while running towards it’s all in the same.

Leif the hero actually is someone that Mia’s older brother has known for a while but he plays for and with another band. When Lyrik is in a bind, he reaches out to him for an offer Leif can’t refuse. He moves out to Georgia at Lyrik’s property to be close, only to come face to face with his illusion. Illusion because up until know, Leif though he had made her up, made up the scenario that occurred that night, the sizzle, the feelings. What hit him the most is, that she was a mom on top of being off-limits but then that. And you will get more in the story to why I said it like that.

Motherfucking Karma.
She’d moved into my room and taken a seat at the bar, holding her glass in the air in a silent cheer.
She truly was a bitch.

-Leif

They both just wanted to…to…FEEL something. Aside from theri pasts and the danger, and everything swirling around them…both Lief and Mia can’t deny the connection they have, how the air is more crisp around one another. This truly is magical to read, the feelings and words between the hero and heroine, will give you shivers. But everything beautiful has it’s dark side and this comes in the form of both their past, secrets, little of mystery, suspense and twists. Which ALL are in here, I was so caught up with the book that nothing else around me seemed to exists. Truly an amazing book because Amy the author, is magic with her words. Really don’t want to spoil any more, will say that it contains the right amount of angst, passion and udderly beautiful romance.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2020

NEW TO ME AUTHOR & BOOKS, I have been wanting to read a book by this author but have not had the chance yet. I received the sweetest and most amazing package that not only contained a signed paperback of this beautiful cover but also personalized gifts. After reading the blurb and getting a little info from my #bookbestie Amy, I can’t wait to dive in.

First of I’d like to say that I though I might be okay without tissues, but fair warning, have tissues handy! This book broke me, then put me together and then romanced me!! I felt so part of the story, when I stopped reading I had to blink once or twice to bring myself back. I was blown away by her writing, the hero and heroine are unconventional, therefore a slow-burn but what a burn…the reasons of why, who and when took me back, I was right there with every memory from the characters. Truly amazed.

Now I know this writers words and will definitely be reading more, even if this one slowly dissected me before it put me back as a whole. MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Surrendering To Him by Hope Jones



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

She’s an investigative journalist with a heartbreaking past. He’s the badass PI who has her in his sights.
When Phoebe Danvers’s job lands her in danger, local badass and ex-FBI agent turned PI Huxley Carson steps in to save her. The only problem with that is she doesn’t want to be saved. She wants to be left alone to focus on work. Unfortunately, Huxley is determined to help, so she settles on keeping him at arm’s length—something he’s determined not to let her do.
What Phoebe doesn’t know is Huxley has been interested in her for years but never had a way in until now. With the push and pull of their new relationship and danger drawing closer, Phoebe begins to wonder if it’s time to surrender to the man consuming her soul.
Or is it already too late?

RELEASE DATE: March 5, 2020

NEW TO ME AUTHOR and I fell in love with the blurb and the sweet cover, I was not ready for this since it is a new author, do I don’t know their writing style very well. So this is how I felt:

The hero Hux is a big, handsome, alpha, sexy and sweet man…he works a dangerous job but is his own boss and knows how to handle himself. The heroine Phoebe is a sweet, sassy, active (don’t want to use the word hyper) beautiful woman that is a investigative journalist, so it can somewhat be dangerous. After two years of being around one another, Hux and Phoebe essentially first made contact if that makes sense. He pulls her out of a dangerous situation and she is livid pissed at him. This is where they start..and I’ll stop here because I want to explain my feelings towards the heroine…the hero seems calm, alpha, love the way he talks to her or in general and is towards the heroine, she on the other hand kind of grew on me the wrong way: She seems very ping-pong hyper at times and I am left with not knowing that I jumped from one rock to another. There were times I just, it felt off…like one where she was pissed at him for something that I don’t know didn’t seem right to be THAT overly-pissed off about since the hero explained to her from the beginning regarding the item and what he did…so that kind of rubbed me the wrong way. But in the end you do understand that she is a girl that lost everything, and it isn’t easy for her to open up to be hurt again. Aside from that I enjoyed their banter, Hux really is the sweetest and swooniest man especially towards our heroine who is a spit-fire and he tames her. There is quiet angst in here, but the sexy scenes definitely do not disappoint. To me, this was a great potential and enough for me to read more by this new author I discovered, for sure!!

R E V I E W ➠ Biker Brit by Audrey Carlan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

The tragedy that controlled my past led me to move as far away from my home in England as I could get. With a degree in library sciences and a will to live life on my own terms, I crossed the pond and headed for the West Coast. I ended up in Grant’s Pass Oregon as the county’s much needed librarian.
I was amazing at two things in this life. Books and blowjobs.
Men were a fun past time, nothing but scratching a physical itch when needed. Until I attended a Hero’s Pride MC party and met Tank. The man was massive, and I wanted nothing more than to climb him like a tree. Turns out he was into fiery redheads with one thing on their minds.
We swore no strings attached.
Until we met up again and he decided he wanted another taste. The man had serious ability in the bedroom so I gave it to him. Again. And again. The lines between our no strings started getting knotted up with every new day.
Then someone started threatening the old ladies and Tank became more than my shag buddy, he became my protector. When the world around us got truly scary Tank decided things between us were going to change. Forever.
I wasn’t ready to be a man’s girlfriend or anyone’s old lady. My Romeo in jeans and leather had other plans for his silk and stiletto wearing Juliet.
In the end, I feared star-crossed lovers weren’t meant to be.
He believed otherwise.
The Biker Beauties is a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat, but don’t forget the sweet.

RELEASE DATE: February 2, 2020

Not my first read by the author and yes I have read the other 2 books in the series! I absolutely fell in love with this biker series from her! At first I was nervous because it indicated that the heroine is kind of a man-woman-whore haha so those really make me nervous because there tends to be over baring strong heroine’s and some sort of another man. Thankfully this was not haha it was still angsty but not in that sense.

It was actually quiet a beautiful story! I absolutely loved all the characters but especially the hero OH MY GOD the swoon, the alpha, the MAN in him…he seriously is a top bookboyfriend now!!!! He sees what he wants, goes after it and nothing will stop him. The chemistry alone will have you pulled in. It is on the shorter side, so hard and fast type of love. I absolutely love it, all of them and hope she will continue and give a full length or longer biker romances.
