Blurb:

After years of searching for her mother’s killer, Felicia “Lucky” Fascino is finally on the right track. With the help of her family, and on-again off-again boyfriend, Kenji Zinn, Lucky is getting closer to fulfilling the unspoken promise she made to her adoptive father.

As the group continues to dig deep into the assassin’s network, and search for the elusive Quimby, ties to the past come back full circle, endangering everyone Lucky loves and cares for. It’s only a matter of time before their secret is uncovered.

My thoughts:

I have received ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in this amazing series that grabbed my attention from the start of the book 1! I could not wait to write the review for this part as for me this is the best book among all 3 of them.

We have so much going on here. Lucky is finally getting answers after years of searching and hunting the guys that destroyed her family. Lucky is a perfect assassin. Even though she kills for money, she can defer good from bad and is actually able to feel love also. Her lover, Kenji is my new BBF. He is strong and determined to break all the walls that surrounds Lucky. He loves her and he wants to teach her how to love back. Their feelings are growing with every chapter. You can see how Lucky is changing thanks to him. She is no longer a girl, woman obsessed with vengeance. She is able to love him back and care for him.

This book is amazing. The multiple POVs, changing from good to bad guys makes it so much more interesting, as it’s rare to have the insight into the BAD guys way of thinking. I found it…refreshing.

This book is emotional not only because of the love between the main characters, but also because of all the action that it’s packed with. The whole series is.

Amazing 5 stars!

Cover Reveal: Damaged & Dangerous (The Sacred Hearts MC VI) by A.J. Downey

Title: Damaged & Dangerous
Series: The Sacred Hearts MC VI
Author: A.J. Downey
Release Date: September 27, 2015


Synopsis
She’s Damaged…
Dani Broussard never imagined that her life
would turn out like this. She always thought that her grandfather would be
there for her into adulthood and that her high school sweetheart, Jared, would
be the man she would marry. That isn’t what happened though. Instead, her
grandfather got sick and passed away before Dani saw the age of nineteen. It
was just her and Jared until he hooked up with a local MC, The Suicide Kings…
Then it was just her. Pig-Pen claimed her body, rules her life, but he would
never hold her heart. Kept because of her looks and a particular set of skills
unique only to her, Dani has been with The Suicide Kings for the last three
years… three long damaging years. She hates it, all of it, the pain the
humiliation, the fear… and as strong as Dani is, as clever as she can be, she
is quickly finding that death may be the kinder, gentler option rather than
live through any more of this hell.
He’s Dangerous…
Red-XIII is, and always will be, a Sacred
Hearts man. But for now, he’s a Suicide Kings prospect. Tasked with providing
intelligence on the King’s inner workings to his real club, Thirteen has been
slowly, quietly and carefully dismantling the King’s operation from the inside
out. The situation is dangerous, good thing Thirteen is a dangerous guy but
even he can’t be everywhere at once and a couple of missteps have cost the
Sacred Hearts dearly. Doubly determined to finish this with no more wreckage or
damage to the SHMC, Thirteen is blindsided by his heart when he lays eyes on
Dani. A pretty, little thing with long black hair and striking blue eyes. She
slays him with one look from her damaged soul and now Thirteen has tasked
himself with two missions… Take down The Suicide Kings and get both Dani and
himself out alive.
For now those missions run parallel to each
other but what happens if they ever end up at odds? The bigger question is, how
can he get close to the VP’s Ol’ Lady as a Prospect and not get them both
burned?

Excerpt

I finished cleaning the clubhouse all
the while trapped in memory. I didn’t realize that I’d had company as I’d
worked. As usual, he was there, parked on the end of the couch, boots propped
on the old, scarred, garage sale coffee table, only this early in the day he’d
forgone the beer in favor of a bottle of water. Another thing that set him
apart as ‘other’, to the rest of the guys beer was bottled water.

I secreted a small smile in his
direction and he secreted one back but we didn’t speak, we didn’t need to.
Soon, Skid came around and our little private moment was in the wind but that
was okay. I knew that I
could or would never be with Thirteen,
but having him around had become a little ray of light in an otherwise darkened
room. Maybe it was foolish to hope or to dream at this stage but I couldn’t
help but believe that with a guy like Thirteen around the club, maybe, just
maybe things could get better.

“What you smiling about?” Skid asked me
as he bellied up to the bar. I startled, had I been smiling? I glanced at the
older biker and he raised an eyebrow under his faded black do-rag.

“I don’t know…” I frowned and flailed
helplessly inside my head for a convincing lie, “I was just thinking about a
piece I was going to try and create. I think I have all the pieces now.”

Skid chuckled, “It’s good to see you
smile Rac. How ‘bout you get me a beer? One of them ones with the orange dude
on the label.” He turned on his stool and started talking to Thirteen who had
been grinning like an idiot behind his back but who quickly schooled his
features into neutrality before Skid turned.

I rolled my eyes at Thirteen behind
Skid’s back and got Skid the bottle he asked for, popping the top. I set it on
the bar by his hand and he picked it up and drank, never breaking his stride as
the two of them spoke bike. I was simply nothing more than furniture again
which I didn’t like but at the same time was definitely the lesser of two
evils.

Pretty soon Gordy, Pipes and Cooter
came in from the front of the club and I was serving them up drinks when
Pig-Pen and Griz made their arrival. The rest of the guys started to trickle in
from the front or the back lot and girls started coming intermixed with the
guy’s arrival. The party was in full swing the sky dark outside when Gordy
swore and pounded his fist on the bar.

“God damn fucking son of a bitch!” he
bellowed, looking at the lighted screen on his phone. Griz shoved down on the
head of the strung out broad sucking him off and she choked, struggling.

“What is it now?” he demanded and let
her up. She stood up disgusted and stumbled towards the bathrooms.

“Trouble!” Gordy declared, “But if we
all go now we might make it, Ace and Deuce are holed up at the North West safe
house, says Sacred Hearts have ‘em pinned down, four of ‘em.” Griz stood up and
tucked himself back in his pants doing up his jeans.

“Boys! We’re goin’ huntin’!” he yelled.
A cheer went up and I swallowed hard, Thirteen stood.

“Not you!” Gordy stabbed a finger at
him.

“Take Coon to your place and keep her locked
down. She’s our last bet on making any god damned money.”

Thirteen raised an eyebrow, “I live in
a cabin with no electricity!” he declared.

“So fucking what!?” Pig-Pen called,
“Don’t care if she’s comfortable, so long as she can produce. Don’t be god
damned pussy over her pussy!”

Thirteen gave a shrug and I gathered my
purse. The guys were all going out the back door to the parking lot where they
kept their bikes I could already hear some of them firing up. Dredd and Flyer
were chasing out the club sluts, which truthfully there weren’t many left
hanging around since the club’s drug supply started drying up. I came around
the bar and Pig grabbed me by the elbow, hard.

“You’re my bitch, so don’t be getting
any ideas about spreading those whore legs of yers for Pretty boy over there,”
he muttered savagely in my ear, his breath washing over me, a fetid mixture of
whiskey and cigarettes with an overlay of just plain rot.

“I wouldn’t dream of it.” I plastered
on a fake as hell sincere smile, “I know who takes care of me,” I said.

“Damn right.” And as if to prove his
point he shoved his mouth against mine and his tongue in my mouth all the while
looking daggers at Thirteen. I gave little resistance. I didn’t want or need
any bruises except the ones that were likely imprinted on my arm from where he
gripped me, besides that, I’d learned a long, long time ago that resistance was
futile and only hurt more in the end. Pig-Pen finally broke the kiss and thrust
me in Thirteen’s direction before going out the door.

“You good to ride?” he asked. I nodded
grimly. I just wanted outside so I could spit. Thirteen grabbed my coat off the
hook in the wall behind the bar and handed it to me and I shrugged into it.

“C’mon.” he put a hand on my shoulder
and made like he was shoving me in front of him out the door, though his grip
on my shoulder was light, not painful. He put on his helmet and glasses sitting
astride his bike. I put on the spare and with one final brave smile at Pig who
was glaring at me and standing with Griz and Gordy I got on behind Thirteen.

ARC review: Quarter Mile Hearts: An American Muscle Novel by Jenny Siegel

Title: Quarter Mile Hearts: An American Muscle Novel

Author: Jenny Siegel

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Release Date: July 7, 2015
 

Following an accident injuring her dad, twenty-four
year old Leigh Storm returns home to the town she was once so desperate to
escape.
 
It is only a matter of hours before she runs into
Max ‘Manwhore‘ Morgan. Dark eyed and
dangerous to her heart, he is the very last person she wants to see. It might
have been four years since she saw him last, but there’s no denying the
chemistry between them is as potent as ever. Max makes it clear he isn’t about
to let her run again, even if he is the one thing Leigh vowed to herself she
would never date: a street racer.
 
After racing tore apart her own family and left a
path of destruction in its wake, Leigh decided long ago that it is not the life
she wants for herself. But when a wager gone wrong threatens her dad’s
livelihood, Leigh must go against everything she believes in.
 
This time there’s more at stake on the quarter mile
that just the family business-She’s risking her heart as well.


 
ReviewI have received ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

WOW! That’s all I’m going to say…. This book just hit the right spots for me. Amazing guys with tattoos, tall and with fast cars… and a good story!

This book is not only about a cheap romance about a girl who falls for a racer. It’s so much more!

Leigh, after hearing about her dad’s accidents, rushes to her home town to be by his side and also to make sure the family Garage will not lose their customers. The coming home is not easy for her. Not only because she will see the only guy that makes her feel so many things. Lust, passion, annoyance and so much more. But also because of the famous Quarter Mile. The place where everyone is racing. Where she had her first race and where she had her first heart break. It has so much meaning to her. But it also holds so many painful memories. Leigh is a really complex character. Strong, stubborn and caring. She is not a simple girl that likes the guy because he has a nice car. No. She decided to be different and not fall in the pattern of her home town. That’s why she left. But coming back made her feel like coming home. She felt warm and simply wanted there.

Max…. *swoon*. GOD! That guy hits all the right places. Tall, dark, snarky and stubborn. He knows what he wants. And he wants Leigh, even though she said NO to him. She is determined to make her see that they are perfect for each other.

The book has so much passion. The sex is so HOT and steamy. But it’s not only about that. There is drama and danger also, which made me feeling on edge almost the entire book.

Amazing! Well deserved 5 stars!

This is a Stand Alone Book with an HEA ending!

The Savior

Emma Snow has spent her life fighting to live. The product of a broken home, she clawed her way to independence, but at a cost. Now, in her junior year at a top tier college, she has everything within her grasp. Until she meets him.

Aidan is wild and reckless. Everything she isn’t and everything she should avoid. Her attraction to him is undeniable.

Emma escaped darkness before. Will surrendering to him only trap her again?

The Sinner

Wounded Army Specialist, Aidan Crowne never thought living at home could be this hard. A year into his new life, and he is already spinning out of control. No job, no prospects.

Fire and Steel MC offers him a place at their side. Joining the club means he’ll have to sacrifice everything that makes him human and give into his true nature.

Like a God

His Wrath.

Is it worth the cost?

Can Emma deny Aidan when she’s the only one who might lead him to safety?

My Thoughts:

Copy gifted by the Author in exchange for an honest review.

This book is so much better than the first part. The writing is more believable and the story just pulls you in.

In this part we meet Emma and Aiden. Aiden is an injured army veteran and it’s hard for him to go back to a normal life. He finds his new home in the wall of MC. After meeting Rage in Kat’s bar he is slowly coming back to life. And then he meets Emma.

Emma always struggled in her life. It never was full of roses and petals. She is a fierce girl that knows what she wants. Safe enough money to go to college and avoid the life her mother had: being dependent. She never wanted to associate with the MCs members. She wanted to be far away from them. Until she met Aiden. Wraith. And she finds herself falling faster than ever before.

This story is simply beautiful. Emotional. You could see how they both healed each other.

Amazing 5 stars!

Until a tall dark and sexy-as-sin player reawakens something inside of her.

Kade Ford knows what some people will do in the name of love, and it isn’t all hearts and flowers. It’s the reason he isn’t looking to settle down. Ever. Instead, he plays the field and never gets too close.

Until a tiny blonde firecracker barrels her way into his life and leaves him wanting more.

What starts as a one-night stand turned friends-with-benefits arrangement begins to blur into something neither of them saw coming—or wanted. And when secrets from their pasts catch up with them, the very thing that they are both running from might just be the thing that they need the most. Will Staci and Kade turn to each other or will they let their pasts define their future?

Sometimes two people don’t just come together…they collide.

Copy gifted by the Author in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in the series, that just brought so many emotions to me. Faith, disappointment, pain, sadness, happiness, friendship, love, happiness. So many of them that it’s hard to list them all.

In this part we meet Staci, who we have met in first book: Fate’s Love. Staci is independent, honest and is avoiding relationships. She was heartbroken once and for her it was enough. She prefers her one nights stands. No strings attached arrangements. Until she meets Kade. Typical player, who also didn’t want anything else. But what is more a shocker, he is the first one to admit he want more from Staci. Much more. And she is not ready to give him more. So their arrangement of being friends with benefits starts.

Kade is relentless and pushes her for more, to the point where she is doing one thing that she is good at: she runs. To avoid him, to escape the feelings he has awoken in her.

I loved this book so freaking much! I think this was the best part among all of them! You have here passion, lust, feelings, anger and so much hot sex <3. I was heartbroken mostly with Kade. I could understand why he wanted to have more. Staci is an amazing person. But what was the most beautiful part? The time when he understood that she needs time.

I loved that we got to see the characters from previous books.

L.A. has an amazing writing style and I have to admit she is getting so much better with pulling the reader in her world. I read all of her books that were published and I cannot wait for the next one.

Amazing 5 Stars! ❤

Fate’s Love (Fate’s Love Book 1)

Synopsis

“When you meet that one person in the world meant for you… you should hold onto them.”

Olivia Bannon walked away.

Twice.

When 17-year-old Livy meets Ethan, she can’t deny their inexplicable connection. Lost in his dark, intense eyes and smile-to-die-for, Livy never thought she would feel like this. It almost makes her want to break her childhood vow, but Livy knows happily ever after is just an illusion, and despite her heart wanting Ethan, her head is telling her to stick with the plan. The one that doesn’t include falling in love. Period.

Eight years later, Livy finds herself back in her hometown. After the way she left things, the last time they were together, Livy is anxious about seeing Ethan again. It shouldn’t come as a shock to discover he has finally moved on—but it hurts. A lot. Accepting that she will never get the chance to put things right isn’t easy, but it’s not until life comes crashing down around her that Livy realizes what she could’ve had. Left broken, alone, and depressed, only one person can pull her out—the guy she thought she’d pushed away one too many times.

Livy has finally realized that you can’t fight fate… Some things are just meant to be. Is this finally her time to get it right, or has Livy missed her last chance with Ethan?

Love’s Spark (Fate’s Love Book 2)

Synopsis

Twenty-four year old Sharn Macer has spent the last six years looking for love….for that spark. She’s failing miserably. After a life changing break up forces her back to her broken home, and into a string of dating disasters, Sharn decides it’s time to hang up her heels and take a break from guys.

She didn’t expect to find the spark… with the quiet guy from her past.

Keefer Smith likes to keep to himself, always has and probably always will. He doesn’t have time to date, not when he’s constantly worrying about what state he’ll find his father in. Lucky for him, he does have one thing going for him; baseball.

He didn’t expect to want more… with the girl he once watched from afar.

Back in high school, Sharn would never have looked twice at someone like him, and Keefer would’ve never stood a chance with someone like her. But six years is a long time, and when they find themselves placed in charge of seventeen ninth graders they soon realize they might not be as different as they think. The chemistry is right, even if the timing is all wrong.

Sparks will fly, but will they spark love?

Arriving at the new government bunker, things quickly go from bad to worse. I am separated from Finn and my family because of my ability to connect with Arvies through telepathy. Housed with three other Readers—and kept away from the general population—we are given serum injections in effort to enhance our thought transference. The end goal? Thought manipulation.

We are considered humanity’s only hope in the war against the Arvy race.

With the ever growing threat of an invasion, the government demands results from the Reader program by doling out ultimatums, and using our loved ones against us.

But they will not break me.

My name is Abigail Park. I am intransigent.

My Thoughts:

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

What can I say? WOW! Cameo just gets better and better with her story. Her writing improved so much that it’s even harder to put the book down! I had trouble to stay awake today at work, because I pulled almost a full nighter! But it was SO worth it! The book is simply amazing!

The story is so much more than what I thought at the beginning! With Abi’s new abilities, the new government want to use her to control the Arvies. After Abi is starting to get the newly found injections, things are getting so interested and there is so much more action! It kept me on my toes all the time!

The feelings between Abi and Finn is even stronger than what it was before, even though they were separated. I love that about them. They know that they are perfect for each other and are fighting to be together, but at the same time they don’t forget their responsibilities, so it doesn’t feel like a teenager crush, but a full blown love. Simply as that.

But the best thing here? The best thing in this part is the description of how Abi is growing, maturing and becoming a strong, responsible young woman.

The new characters, the twins are also a vital part of the book and a part of the programme “Reader”, Abi befriends them. After all the conspiracy, secrets and everything that is ugly is revealed Abi finds the strength in her to lead her lead her loved one to safety and to finally find a place for them to be happy.

I can’t wait for the next part(s) of the series and how everything will play out.

Another 5 stars!

I wanted to kick myself in a bum that I have not started this book much earlier. I’m asking myself WHY? The book is amazing. I love dystopian books and the concept in Cameo’s book is just perfect.

The beginning of the story starts with a preface that the government knew about the apocalypse, but decided to ignore it? Save only the worthy ones? And because of it it’s even more terrifying that it actually can be true. That THIS can happen.

The main character, Abi, is telling us the story from her POV. It all begun for her, when her dad took them and their neighbours to a safe place, that he created with other people who where survivalist. She was 4 then. After that over a decade passed and they are now ready to return to surface and rebuild the world. But….there is always a but! The injection that were supposed to help people turned them into mutants and now they are simply craving human meat. They are aggressive, mad and simply not human.

When the journey starts and fight for survival begins, the book turns into a fast paced, conspiracy/survivalist book with a bit of a romance.

The characters are amazingly well developed. They are not perfect in everything but every single one of them is good in something. And that’s what makes them a perfect team.

What I love about the world Cameo created? That the mutants are not Zombies, undead. They are very much alive. The book keeps you on the edge of the book, even though the romance part takes you a bit away from the whole action, but I think it was needed. Why? Because it shows that even when everything is destroyed around us, there is a chance to have other feelings. To think only about fighting and surviving.

Amazing, 5 star read!

The story picks up where the previous part left. It’s so packed with so much more action and feelings. Abi is still being held captive by the new bunkers representatives and she is being questioned regarding some mysterious cases that were happening in here. But what is the worst? She is being threatened by the fellow survivalist. There is no team work here between the other bunkers and it’s disappointing, that even after a huge apocalypse people are still fighting for the power. They are still greedy and don’t tolerate people who are way too curious.

In here we are falling in love with Finn again *sigh*. I love that boy. And what I love more? That the author is not rushing things. The pacing between Abi and Finn is just perfect. Their feeling are blooming naturally, so there is no feeling: because we survived we have to be together. No. It feels like they were destined to be together.

Cameo’s writing is just perfect. The way the story is told, compels you and pulls you in. And believe me. Few times I believed in her world.

Another amazing, perfect book. 5 Stars!

As a corporate stooge and single mother, she spends all of her free time reading, writing and drinking too much coffee (wine). Annie has a strong passion for the literary world and before writing her book, spent all of her time reviewing others.

My Thoughts:
I was blessed by the author to let me BETA read this amazing book.

What can I say? I fell in love with Anne’s writing from the first sentence in Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura. I fell in love with the story, characters and simply Annie. She is an amazingly talented person and she cares about her readers ❤ But Anyway, the BOOK.

OMG. That’s about sums everything up. And some: WOWs, Holy Awesomeness also… I could come up with few more…

The story pick up, where the first one ended. It’s after the trial, Anna is back home, safe with her new family and friends. The only difference now is: she has a boyfriend. Jake. Her big brother best friend and also her friend. Everything seems perfect. She is moving on. He is accepting her past and helped her move on. But…there is always a but. She is never herself when with him. She is nervous. She is not able to be that carefree girl that was starting to bloom when he was her friend. She is nervous and is not sure how to behave. What is more Chloe, her BFF is not happy that Anna is agreeing to everything what Jake says. And also Logan feels pushed away from both of them. Anna has to chose what is best for her, her family and friends.

Even though this book doesn’t have so much drama and tragedy that makes you cry on every single chapter, it makes you feel so much better at the end of the book. You can see that Anna grew up. She can finally move on. She has her new love, her friends, family and even when her past is catching up with her, she is still able to fly.

I loved this book. I cannot wait for the next book from Annie. Either in this series, if she plans to write any, or a totally different one. I am simply hooked on her writing style. ❤
