I’ve been sold by my own father to a beast.
 
Gleb Sokolov is the definition of a savage.
He’s an animal in bed and everywhere else.
A notorious Russian mobster, badass personified.
 
And my father just sold me to him, to pay off a debt.
 
But there’s something Gleb doesn’t know… we have a son,
and I’ll do anything to keep him from finding out.
 
Eva Petrenko.
Sassy, secretive, trouble with a capital T.
She drives me fucking insane.
Except, when her father offers her to me, I find I can’t resist.
She belongs with me, even if she refuses to believe it.
Eva hates me, but I’ll go to the ends of the earth to protect her.
Problem is, Eva’s father isn’t the only one with debts…
and mine are the kind I’ll need to pay with my own blood.
 
 
 
This was an enjoyable read.I enjoy this author's stories so always looking forward to her releases.
 
I enjoyed the story plot and enjoyed most of the characters but, I will have to say that Eva's parents not at all and If I was her would have written them off but, she had such a generous heart it was not in her to do so.
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to be Gleb and that is because he was willing to sacrifice so much for those he loved but also give up the only life he has known to protect them as well as love them.I found Gleb to be brass,conceded but underneath all the dark and dangerous he had a heart as well as a conscience.I also loved that he even had limits that he wouldn't cross.I felt  bad and even sad at the fact he was constantly waring with himself and what was best for Eva and his son.
 
Eva what to say other than she was a sweetheart.I loved that she had a bit of feisty-ness to her as well and a backbone too.I loved how protective she was of her son.I loved how patient she was with Gleb as he continued to work through all these new emotions that she stirred up in him.
 
The story flowed nicely and had a bit of suspense and also about a second chance at the life you would have chosen not the one your were dealt but, had the courage to make the change even if it killed her.
 
I enjoyed the romance between this couple and as the story played out they had quite a few sexy scene's but, my only complaint would be I felt that this couple  never connected on a intimate level (meaning I never felt the love between them even knowing they loved one another) maybe it was just the fact that Gleb guarded his heart and emotions fiercely to the very end and just finally realizing really what he had to lose and let us see what was beneath the surface.
 
Overall the story was good from beginning to end.Was I wowed this time around  ? "no" but ,it was a nice enjoyable read to pass the time.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Without warning, my head starts to spin. Shit, I shouldn’t have drunk that cocktail so fast. I can’t see any signs indicating the bathroom. Maybe I can escape for a few minutes behind one of these doors? I’m not that desperate to pee, just need somewhere peaceful to sit and wait for my brain to clear.
I step into an office unlike any I’ve been in before. Ritzy, with an executive desk in the center that’s the size of my bed at home. My eyes are immediately drawn to a stack of banknotes on top of the shiny surface. I tiptoe across the room.
Wow, it’s a pile of one-hundred-dollar bills.
I pick one up to examine it.
Surely these can’t be real?
“What the fuck are you doing in here?” a baritone voice booms.
The air around me compresses, and I spin around.
A man in a tux is standing in the doorway, piercing blue eyes glowering at me. He’s so big his shoulders nearly meet the doorjambs.
And he’s drawn a fucking gun on me!
“I was looking for the bathroom.” I drop the money back onto the table, my heartbeat thudding in my ears.
Blue Eyes paces up to me, holsters his firearm and grabs my wrist. “Who sent you to snoop?” His English is good, but I detect a familiar intonation. “Was it Vadim Rayt?” he adds.
“No one sent me,” I blurt out in Russian. “I’m telling the truth.”
I try to squirm out of Blue Eyes’ hold, but he pulls me against his rock-hard chest, towering above me and invading my senses with his spicy sandalwood cologne.
“Let me go.” I struggle and aim a kick at his shin.
His laugh is scornful. “Not before you give me a better explanation.”
I bite my bottom lip, trying to come up with something. “I just needed some time out.”
“Time out? You’ve got to be kidding. The only women who come in here on their own are hookers. High-class hookers who bribe the doorman.” His gaze roves over my body. “Either you’re a whore or a spy. Which one is it?”
An idea occurs to me. How I can get out of this situation. “I’m a hooker,” my voice purrs.
I can’t believe the words coming out of my mouth. I’ve never been so blatant… like ever. But desperate times call for desperate measures. Once I’ve gotten his pants down around his legs I’ll make a run for it. I reach for his belt buckle with my free hand.
With a groan he lets go my wrist and pushes me to my knees. “You better be good.”
I’ve never given a blow-job in my life. It wasn’t something I felt I could offer my ex, the only boyfriend I’ve ever had.
But I’m not gonna suck Blue Eyes off, am I?
This is only a means to an end.
I pull down his suit pants, and he releases his monster cock himself. Oh. My. God. There’s a ring-style piercing at the tip. Is that what they call a Prince Albert? I stare at it, fascinated.
“Like what you see, Kotenok?”
Somehow, I don’t mind being called kitten by him.
Mistake, Eva.
Big mistake.
Focus on the task at hand… You need to get out of here.
I jump to my feet and prepare to run.
But he grabs me by the hair, yanking me against him. “Oh, yes, you are good, little slut. But not as good as you think you are. Time you learned a lesson.”
He steps out of his pants and drags me over to his executive chair.
“What are you doing?” I yelp.
“Punishing you for attempting a fast one. I’m going to spank your ass.”
“And then you’ll let me go.” It’s more a statement than a question.

“One step at a time, Kitten. First, I will punish you… then we negotiate.”

Read for Free in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

I’m meant to be alone. I haven’t so much as looked at a woman in years. But one minute alone with her and I’m a wild man. I’m a former marine who rules The Untouchables’ MC with an iron fist. I never lose control. But when I see Kelly at the wedding of one of our own, I can’t get my mind off her. I’m no good for a nice girl like her, but that’s not going to stop me from hunting her down. When her brother gets in the way, I don’t ease up. Not until a killer starts targeting my crew. Our women too. That’s when I make the hardest call I’ve ever made in my life. I leave Kelly alone to protect her. It kills me to do it. She’s so close, but just out of reach. So I watch and I wait. I keep her safe and chase off any men who dare to get close. Only now, the killer is growing more brazen. There’s no keeping her safe unless she’s in my bed, for good.





What an awesome read!The story was hotter the he**!I have to say that I loved the characters from the very beginning Cain and Alpha and Kelly was sweet and charming with a dash of sass just loved them.

The story was infused with suspense, humor and a cast of great characters that kept us clued to the pages from beginning to end.


I always pick a favorite character and although it was hard I am picking Cain.Cain from the beginning had me half in love with him wright from that searing kiss he gave Kelly without even knowing her yet.The spark and the sizzle between these two was amazing and their chemistry off the charts.Cain was a character that screamed "Danger Beware" but, underneath it all he had a romantic side to him that I loved.This was a man who took what he wanted and OMG! when he did things heated up mighty quickly but, Kelly wasn't going down without a fight and she was super cute and funny with her antic's until she did.


I love a story like this when its a instant attraction been both parties but, with a killer on the loose one needs to do what they need to do to protect what is their's and Kelly was Cain's from the moment they met even if she didn't know it!


Kelly was a character that surprised me the most as she was so sweet and kind and had a sense of humor but underneath it all she was a she-cat with claws and had a naughty kinky side to her as well that lurked between all that sweetness. Laughing out loud....


The sex scene's just kept getting hotter as the story unfolded but,from the very beginning these opposites were destined to be together even if the journey was delayed a bit.The love between them clearly visible to all and just what Cain needed to soften that intense and dangerous part of his personality.


I loved the story from beginning to end.I will say that although the story doesn't leave on a cliff hanger the story within the story is a continuing one.


This is only my second book by this author but, I am looking forward to catching up on this series and reading her other works as I enjoyed this current story immensely.


Recommended read to all!

Book Review for Army by Chiah Wilder

 
 
 
 
 
Title: Army
Series: Night Rebels Motorcycle Club
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2018
Reviewed by: Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A member of the Night Rebels MC, Army is an arrogant, tough, SOB, and he makes no bones about it. His idea of having a good time is riding his Harley, boozing with his brothers, and having rowdy sex whenever the mood strikes him—which is often. Hook ups are on his terms, and if a woman doesn’t like it, there’s always another one waiting to take her place.

Then he sees her fighting in the rink, moving in ways that give him a whole bunch of nasty ideas about what he wants to do to her. And the way she looks at him? Well … there’s no denying the intense, mutual attraction. Chemistry sparks between them like the Fourth of July.

The only problem? She says she’s not interested. What the …?
Stiletto’s attraction to the rugged biker is like a storm electrifying the air, but with his swagger and perpetual smirk, he’s a poster boy for shattering hearts. If only her body would understand that.
Then she finds out he’s a member of the Night Rebels Motorcycle Club and is a deadly rival of her brother’s MC—The Satan’s Pistons.
But one night with him wouldn’t hurt anyone.
It’d just be a hook up, and probably the best sex she’d ever had.
Besides, who would ever know?
Then a series of tragic events lead the star-crossed lovers down a dangerous and dark path, forcing Stiletto and Army to make the hardest choices of their lives.
The Night Rebels MC series are standalone romance novels. This is Army’s story. This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.
 
 
 
 
I am really enjoying this series by this author.I have to say this was a really enjoyable read and that I laughed out loud through the entire story.
 
I loved the character's right of the bat and Mia and Army were fated from the onset of the story.The story had a great cast of character's as they all had great personalities.I loved Mia for not only surviving the bad stuff she had gone through in life but, how she turned the bad into something good and into a career she loved.Mia was just the perfect person for Army to fall for she was perfect for him in every way.
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to be Army.Why?The biggest reason is he had me laughing out loud practically from page one..I found him to conceited and brass ,had swag, and had total sex appeal even though he was one cocky bastard. lol I also liked the fact that already knowing that Army was the love and leave them type he finally realized that Mia was the one women to take a chance on even though we new she was not going to make it easy for him.I loved the change we saw in Army as the story progressed it was almost like seeing him finally grow up even though he was already and adult.I loved what an amazing couple he and Mia were .
 
Mia she was another character that made me laugh out loud.I found her to be confident, funny, a survivor,had sass beautiful on the outside as well within.Mia and Army's chemistry was apparent for the start and it was a bit comical on how Mia tried to avoid it.
 
The story was filled with a lot of sexy heated scenes for us to enjoy.The story had a bit of suspense and on going club issues to deal with but, what they never expected was when one of their brothers finally fell it would be for one of the rivals MC's sister.
 
I love a story like this when a conceited cocky bastard like Army falls that he falls hard.I loved the fact that his love interest was even a big complication for him as nothing worth having is easy to acquire and worth keeping.
 
I have to say Mia is definitely one of my favorite old ladies so far......
 
A recommend read to all !
And be sure to check out other stories in this series as they were enjoyable as well.
 
 




 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Aren’t you cold?”
Mia jumped at the sound of the deep voice—she didn’t hear anyone come out. She pushed away from the wall and let her gaze fall on Army. The yellow glow of the streetlights made his features soft against the darkness of the night. She ran her hands up and down her pebbled skin. “I am. I was just going to head back inside.”
He stood in front of her, blocking her. “Stay for a few minutes.” He shrugged off his leather jacket and draped it around her shoulders before she could protest. The heat from his body felt absurdly intimate, and she was extremely aware of his fingers brushing the back of her neck. He smelled of leather and caramelized dark coffee beans with a tang of salty herbs to it, and it was the most sensual aroma she’d ever come across. It wrapped around her, and much to her chagrin, desire rippled through her. 
“Thanks,” she croaked, her throat dry with tension.
“We never really met each other. I’m Army.”
“Mia,” she said softly. He still stood close behind her.
“That’s a pretty name,” his breath whispered over the curve of her neck, threatening to ensnare her.
Without thinking, she leaned back into him, and he ran a thumb along her jaw as his calloused skin scratched her lightly. “I couldn’t keep my eyes off of you during the fight. You were amazing.” His breath was warm on her cheek and her inner thighs clenched in reaction.
Army cupped Mia’s chin and tilted her head back so she gazed into his desire-filled eyes. Her lips parted when he dipped his head down as his grip tightened on her chin.
Her brain screamed at her to stop, but her traitorous body relaxed in his powerful arms. Danger radiated from him, but it only heightened her excitement.
“Mia,” he said, his low voice a mixture of sensual and gruff masculinity.
Her stomach fluttered as she closed her eyes in anticipation of his kiss.

Book Review for Collared by the Badman by Hayley Faiman

 
 
 
 
Title: Collared by the Badman
Series: Russian Bratva Series 
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 24, 2018 Cover Design: Cassy Roop @ Pink Ink Designs
Reviewed by: Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
 

Sergei Orlov has lived a life of dark corruption. Denying himself any bit of normalcy and happiness as a way to protect his family—of blood or Bratva. He’s seen as a savior to his men, living in darkness behind closed doors.
 
Raisa was a girl sold into a life of sexual servitude. Memories of her life before—forgotten. She aspires to be cherished by a man who will forever keep her as his own, never to be sold, abused, or traded again.
 
A favor asked, turns into something else, something unquestionably beautiful. Sergei cannot deny that Raisa stirs something inside of him. Something that he has never felt before.
 
One fractured savior. One shattered soul. When the two collide, their lives take on new meaning.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
I am to start me review off a little bit differently than I normally do but, after reading this story I was so emotional hyped up and my emotions all over the place that I posted in Hayley's fb group just to tell her how much I loved the story before writing this review here it is ....


  Hayley Faiman its no secret how much I love your books but,I have to say Collared by the Badman floored me.I am still reeling from it.I have so many emotions going on inside of me that I can't even put them into words but, out of all the books I have read this story affected me emotionally more than any others that you have written and I think its your best yet.No other book other than my favorite book of all time Outlander by Diana Gabaldon has effected me this way so and that is saying something just what an awesome writer you are.Awesome Awesome Job.I loved it as it was tragic,dark,terrifying, emotional,heart wrenching and so much more....Glued to the pages to the very end! We love you!
 
After digressing this story several hours later I just read and so many hours later I am still reeling from this story.I have to say that if a author is still able to capture your intention and has you still thinking of the story hours later it truly was beautifully written.

I really don't no where to start and tell you how much I loved the story from beginning to end.I was captivated from the onset of Sergi taking Raisa home.I am going to be honest and say that I was having doubts that I was going to make it to the end of the story as the story had me edgy and a bit shaky because the content was so dark and heart wrenching but, when Sergi took it upon himself to avenge a women who he new so little about I was all in.
 
After talking to Hayley after my response she told me that she never really planned ever to write this story and that would have been an absolute shame and we are so glad she did as it was Fantastic!!!!!

    I always pick a favorite character in a story but, this time around its impossible to do as Sergi's small circle of close friends and family made me love them all the more as their loyalty to him was so touching.I loved how from the beginning of Raisa entering all their lives they new she would be his one and only not only that but, how all of them became so protective of her . "It was so touching, It made me tear up more than once."

Raisa was just an unbelievably strong women and I myself would have never been able to survive the horrors she experience in her life.My heart broke for her and remained broken the entire story.
 
Sergi OMG !
"He was hotter that hot in this story!"I experienced his pain as well what a lonely life for him never being able to love anyone with putting them in danger and never being able to show even a hint of emotion at all always having to play the role of a monster just to survive. Sergi was no saint that is for sure but, It was really nice to see that he had a heart and that he was able to feel something even if he has have to mask those feelings and keep those feelings to himself.I loved his struggle as he worked his way through what he was feeling for Raisa and what she really meant to him.

  As the story progressed the story got hotter and hotter. Omg ! the sex scenes super hot.This story is not for the faint of heart as it is very dark and unless you are enmeshed in a lifestyle such Sergi and Raisa you would truly never really understand it but,the depth of emotions it causes the person reading it to feel and that those feelings are all over place and sometimes overwhelming even. I personally could never imagine anyone freely living a lifestyle of and owner/slave relationship but,after reading Raisa's story there would be no other way for her to function without this kind of a relationship and without it she would never truly survive any other way.I am happy though through all the darkness,heartbreak,horror's she endured that she was able for once in her life experience some sort of happiness and once she had a glimpse of it not wanting to take it to heart as she was constantly waiting for it to be riped a way at and minute.Just heartbreaking you just want the tears to fall with her as she sits there and sheds them to rid the pain in of all that's in her heart....

Tissues ! Tissues ! Tissues! 


A Compelling story not to be missed!

Ash, an enforcer for the Westside Skulls, returns home to New York for his father's funeral. He hadn't seen him in five years thanks to a combination of events that sent him out to California and a whole new life. Ash...or Asher Bennett IV, as he was known in New York, hailed from an uber-rich family and for a few years after graduating for college, worked on Wall Street...before ending up in California, in a leather kutte on the back of a Harley. Ash just wanted his father's funeral to be over so he could escape his gold-digging stepmother, his snobby teenaged sister and the plastic, fake people of his childhood once more. 
The past hurts, and it only gets more painful at the graveside when he comes face to face with his past…Mackenzie, or Mack as he always called her. 
Mack was the girl he'd loved since he was thirteen years old, and the woman who had stood him up at the altar five years ago.
Ash's father's death leaves him juggling his life as a Skull, his past with Mack, and the possibility of a future with his teenaged sister who wants nothing more than to escape...the same way he did, and a stepmother who will do anything she can to make his life hell. 
Of course, when it rains, it pours and in the course of dealing with club business...tragedy strikes, and Ash has to either learn to reign in his notorious temper...or risk losing everything.
Climb on the Harley with Ash and Mack and take a wild ride that will leave you wondering what's around the next bend in the road...and gasping for breath when you get there.

Book 4 in the Westside Skulls MC Series. 
This is a Standalone Romance Novel but characters from the previous stories in this series appear in this and future books in the series. 
HEA and No cliffhanger. 
Intended for Mature Readers.
 
* * *
 
The Westside Skulls MC Series is about members of the MC club, their friends and associates. 
Each story, while focused around one main character, is not necessarily about a Westside Skulls club member, but the story is related to Skulls members and the club.
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying I am loving this series. I loved the characters they were totally awesome.
 
My favorite character would be Charlie even though she was not a main character.I think what I loved most about her as she surprised us at every turn.
 
I loved Ash as well as he is another character that surprised you as he was such a hothead and quick trigger that you would never knew how he would react to a situation.He never acted the way me thought be would.I loved how protective he was his club family as well as Mack and Charlie.Charlie is not going to like dating with a brother like him or this MC at he back as the brothers are going to be just as protective and threating....
 
The story was packed with action ,drama,and all about second chances for Ash,Mack,Charlie and Sledge we loved how they were able to put the pieces back together that had broken them apart in the first place.
 
Sledge needs a shout-out here I loved seeing his protective side come to the forefront!
 
The romance was steamy and passionate and Mack and Ash were super hot together in and out of bed.
 
I really loved how Mack & Ash were able to make things work between them even though in the beginning it was a love/hate relationship and the bottom line is they never stopped loving one another.
 
The plot took on some twists and turns and through some surprises popped up it was a nice easy read that kept you glued to the pages the entire time all the way to the end.
 
 
What I loved about this series is that it has so many amazing characters for us to laugh with ,love,cry and fall in love with and this story was the perfect mix of it all!
 
Recommended read to all and it series!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The early morning light streamed in through the beautiful stained glass of the cathedral windows and the sun’s rays bounced off the white and gold coffin, making it look almost ethereal. Ash sat stoically, hating the tie that was choking him, the suit he hadn’t worn in over five years, the shoes that were pinching his toes...but most of all, hating the fact that his father was inside of the coffin. It was a beautiful coffin, made to impress...not the dead guy of course, but everyone else. That was what his stepmother Allison did best...impress. She’d impressed his father when she was just a twenty-five-year-old barista and he was a forty-year-old multi-millionaire, recently widowed and left alone to raise a twelve-year-old boy. Asher Michael Bennett III had been a hard man to impress, so Ash supposed he should give her credit for that at least.
He wondered what his father was wearing inside that fancy coffin. He’d be willing to bet the old man was the best-dressed man in the room. Allison would know that everyone who was anyone in Manhattan would be at the funeral, and it would never do for the guest of honor to be wearing anything less than Armani’s finest.
Ash could hear the whispering and shuffling as the cathedral filled up behind him. He didn’t need to turn around to know that the guest list would read like the who’s who of Manhattan Island, and he didn’t care to see any of those faces. It was why he lived in California, in the Central Valley...in a motorcycle club. He’d had his fill of these people for the first twenty-three years of his life, and the only person he still had any respect for after all those years was the man who was lying in the casket up at the altar. That respect was the only thing that brought him back...that, and Sledge. He smiled when he thought about his oversized friend. Sledge had ridden hard with him for three days so they could get there on time. He’d set his alarm and woke Ash up that morning. He’d ordered Ash a beer from room service with his breakfast because even though Ash wasn’t much of a drinker...he was going to need at least one to get through the day. And then, he’d gone back to his own room to spend the day sleeping, watching television, and smoking. Sledge wasn’t about to show up in a church full of what he still referred to as his “mortal enemies.” They were a clique of rich kids that they had both gone to private school with their entire lives. They were the bitches and bastards that had terrorized Sledge almost to the point of causing his suicide. Sledge told people that Ash saved his life in high school, but in Asher Michael Bennett IV’s mind, it was the other way around.
Ash’s blue eyes left the coffin and moved to the flowers...thousands of them that would all be carried out to the gravesite and left to die alongside the man being buried today. Tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of flowers. He wondered if anyone there found it the ridiculous and practically obscene waste of money that it was. His father wasn’t impressed with things like that...but this party wasn’t really about him. This party was about Allison...and of course, Charlie. Charlie might be the only person there that Ash was interested in seeing. He wasn’t sure. He hadn’t seen her in five years and then she’d been a cute little ten-year-old with pigtails. She was fifteen now and sadly, according to the emails and phone calls from his father, Charlotte Joanne Bennett was rapidly becoming as superficial as her mother Allison. Ash supposed he was partly to blame for that. The day he’d left New York, his little sister had begged him to take her with him. She’d cried and held onto him until his father had to peel her off. Ash tried to maintain a relationship with her after that, but she refused to talk to him on the phone and she hadn’t answered a single one of his text messages or emails.
Ash reached up and tugged at the Windsor knot that felt like it was choking the life out of him. But in truth, it wasn’t the knot or the tie...it was this place and the people, and the thought of the best man he ever knew being closed inside of a box and put into the ground. He hated that, and he just wanted it to be over. He wished that he’d stayed behind at the hotel with Sledge. His big friend had always been the smarter of the two of them.
Somehow, he made it through the church service. It was long and drawn out, and there were way too many speeches. These people loved to hear themselves talk and they loved showing off their new designer funeral clothes even more. He managed to sneak out of the church and into the family limousine without having to come face to face with anyone. He knew his time was coming, though. He’d have to stand in a line at the graveyard to receive condolences and then he’d have to suffer through the reception afterward at the mansion, but then it would be over, and he could go back to California and his real life and his real family.
The door to the limousine was pulled open and a teenage girl with long, straight blonde hair and crystal blue eyes slid in. She was dressed to kill in a navy-blue Burberry suit and she was on her phone. She didn’t even look across the seat at her brother and Ash had no idea if she even knew he was in the car. Seconds after Charlie, Allison entered, riding high on a wave of Gucci perfume...and on her phone as well. Allison, unlike Charlie, did make eye contact with Ash, and her dark green eyes, which used to be brown before the contacts, said everything he needed to know about how happy she was that he showed up.
The door was closed, the limo started up, and Ash sat in silence on his side of the huge car, practically melting into the soft leather. Finally tiring of the sight of the two women chatting on their phones like they were on their way to a party, he closed his eyes and leaned his head back into the seat. He tried to draw up images of things that made him happy. His Harley, his brothers, the club, and the gym where Wolf had begun letting him take boxing lessons from one of Jacob Wright’s teammates, a guy named Jagger who played a guitar and sang like his namesake Mick Jagger and fought like a champ in the cage. The guy was fun as hell to be around and since things had been quiet around the club for a few months, Ash was enjoying the larger-than-life stories Jagger had to tell.
He felt the limousine slowing down and he opened his eyes. His sister’s large blue ones were locked into his as soon as he did. He managed to find a smile and he said, “Hey, Charlie.”
With no expression at all on her beautiful face she said, “It’s Charlotte.”
“Sorry. Hi, Charlotte.” She stared at him, like she was studying his face and then turned to her mother, who was still on her phone and said:
“Is this dolt going to open the door and let us out of here or what?”
Ash felt a pang in his chest. He blamed himself for Charlie, at least a little bit. He reached across the table in front of him and using the handle that was within her reach, he opened the door and pushed it open. His little sister looked at him like he was a circus freak with two heads and then looked at her mother, who sighed and rolled her eyes. The driver appeared in the doorway then, but not soon enough to escape the wrath of the spoiled teenager.
“Jeez, thanks for showing up,” she said, to the man that was old enough to be her grandfather. Ash’s dad insisted on manners from the time that Ash was old enough to remember. When he was four years old he was taught to say please and thank you to the staff. He knew that Charlie had been taught the same. Somewhere along the way she’d decided that she was above all of that, and Ash was sad for her because of it.
The driver helped her out of the car and Allison finally ended the call that she was on by saying, “Gotta go, I’ll call you later. Of course we can do lunch tomorrow. Mwah!” As she slid toward the door she looked at Ash and said, “Your tie is crooked.” The Gucci perfume that had wafted in with her didn’t leave when she did, and Ash felt like he might gag on it before he hit the fresh, cold air and sucked in a lungful. The limousine was the first in line of many and the rest of the guests seemed to be holding back until the “family” made their way to the huge canopy and took their seats in the front row. Ash sat next to Charlie, but she looked straight ahead, not just ignoring him, but going out of her way to do so.
The graveside services were as long and boring as the church service had been. His father would have hated it. He would have thrown a joke or two into one of his speeches and he would have jazzed up the music. He would have made people feel like no matter how sad they were that their loved one was gone, there was hope left for the future. That was what his father did, he lifted people up. The one mistake that he’d made in his life was sitting two seats away, and although she was a bad one, Ash couldn’t hold it against him. He’d made a bad choice in women a time or two himself.
The priest finally stopped talking, the boring music quit playing, the boring people stopped giving their fake speeches, and it was at last time to stand in line and accept their fake regrets. It was the first real look that Ash had gotten of the guests. Up front and moving through the reception line like royalty were the “society people.” There wasn’t a wet eye in the bunch as they offered their stiff handshakes and stiffer condolences. A little further back were the executives that worked for his father in his textile company. The Bennett money went back for centuries and the company was almost as old as that. Those gentlemen, and one lady at least, seemed genuine in their grief and condolences. The next wave of people was extended family members, cousins and aunts and uncles that Ash hadn’t seen in years if at all. They weren’t much looser than the first wave of rich people had been...at least not with him. He did notice a few of them being overly friendly with Allison. That probably meant his father had left her in charge of the fortune and they were hoping to get what they likely thought of as their fair share.
The last wave was a mixture of loyal staff and old friends that didn’t fit in the society set. As Ash was accepting the condolences from the first one, a man who had served as his father’s mechanic for as long as Ash could remember, he suddenly realized that Charlie and Allison were no longer standing next to him. He glanced to his right and saw them being escorted back to the limousine by the driver. Words couldn’t describe the sheer disgust he felt for them both at that moment. He swallowed the bitter taste in his mouth and continued accepting condolences until the line was gone and so was the limousine. Chuckling to himself at the stupidity of it all, he walked over to where his father’s white casket now sat, waiting to be lowered into the ground. He put his hand on top of the blanket of flowers that covered it and finally let the tears that he’d been holding back all day, fill his eyes.
“I’m pissed at you, old man. You were too fucking young to die. Who has a fucking stroke and dies at fifty-six years old? You were Asher Michael Bennett the fucking Third, man! You were supposed to live forever. You were at least supposed to live until I found the right woman and had you a couple of grandkids...until I finally did something worth all that pride you always had in me.” He reached up and wiped a tear off his face. “I love you, old man. You won’t be forgotten, I promise you that. I know you’re in heaven so I’m not sure if we’ll be meeting up again someday...but if I don’t make it up there, I’ll be drinking a toast to you where I’m at.”
“And where might that be?” Ash froze at the sound of the voice. It was soft, sultry and the last voice he ever wanted to hear again in his life. Even Allison’s was preferable, and that was saying a lot. He ground his jaw and turned slowly around with his eyes still on the ground. As he moved them up past a pair of black-and-white heels, delicate white ankles with a blue rose tattooed on the outside of the right one, sculpted calves, sexy knees, and three inches of muscular thigh before the bottom of her black skirt interrupted them, he realized that even now she still set his blood on fire. Her hips were still wide and her waist small. Her breasts were perfect. He couldn’t see that in the coat she wore over her suit now, but he knew what they looked like...and they were perfect. The skin on her neck and face was still flawless. Her golden-brown hair lay in waves all over her head and down her back and her hazel eyes were still the prettiest thing on the east coast. But when Ash looked at her now, it was like staring into the eyes of a snake.
“Hello, Asher.”
“Mack.” Mackenzie Foster had at one time been the love of Asher’s life. She was the basket that he’d put all of his eggs in...and then that basket had fallen to the cement and it was all over. He’d found himself sifting through the slimy shells, and trying to find the pieces of his life. Like Humpty Dumpty, he’d never been able to put them back together again...so he’d done the next best thing, he’d left.
“I’m sorry about your dad.”
“Thanks, but not to be rude...why are you here?”
She flinched, almost like he’d hit her in the face. “I cared a lot about your dad.”
“Oh...I didn’t know that caring about people meant showing up to you.” He hadn’t meant to do this. Hell, he just hadn’t expected her to show up. The one time he’d staked his whole future on her showing up, she’d bailed. His rudeness wasn’t driving her away, though; instead she nodded, like she understood, and said:
“I’ve missed you, Ash. I tried to call you after you left...”
“Changed my number.”
“Yeah, anyways. It’s good to see you, I’m just sorry it’s under these circumstances.”
“Yeah, I’m sorry too. Look, I better get to the reception...” He realized as he was talking that all of the cars had left. Allison...the bitch...had left him stranded in a graveyard.
“I can give you a ride,” Mackenzie said, as if reading his mind. He used to think she could do that since she always seemed to know what he was thinking, or how he was feeling. It used to give him a warm, comforting feeling, like they were soulmates. Now, it just felt intrusive and it annoyed him.
“I’ll call an Uber.”
She looked hurt again. Too fucking bad. “Ash, it’s been a long time...are you ever going to forgive me?”
“No. I’m not.” He took out his phone and as he headed toward the road where his ride should still be parked he texted Sledge. “At the cemetery. Heading to Last Call in the Village. Meet me there?”
The text he got back in return was swift and to the point. “OMW.”

Ash ordered an Uber on his app and then stuck the phone into his suit jacket. He was almost to the pavement when curiosity got the better of him and he looked back over his shoulder. Mackenzie was still under the canopy, standing next to the coffin with her face buried in her hands. There was still a piece of his heart that beat for her; it pissed him off, but he’d learned to live with it. What he couldn’t learn to live with was the woman who abandoned him at the altar on the very day their life together was supposed to begin.

I escaped hell. I was free.
I thought I could go back to normal.
I can’t.
Right now normal hurts.
I’ve seen things—done things—I’m not the same girl I was.
It changed me—he changed me.
The bar is locked up. The Horsemen clubhouse is no place for me, and I don’t belong anywhere that feels familiar.
I’m alone. I’m broken.
The only thing that feels right is my pain.
 
Our club is in ruins. It's left me at the helm.
Twists and turns took me down this path that lead to further destruction, and I know King had orchestrated it all.
Thing is, I’m no one’s pawn.
The club is all I have, and King won’t take us down. We'll play this out our way.
One way or another, he’ll pay for the damage to us, to them, to her…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's starts off by saying this is a new author for us and I am not sure if she is to my liking or not but , we will see...
 
I am not sure if I am having issues with the author herself or the series itself.I will say that  the author has at-least enticed me enough to continue reading the series.
 
Still not liking Busta as a character he is now romantically involved with Obi."
I am not feeling it !"
 
My mind at this point is clinging to the fact that in the last book Busta imprisoned her treated her poorly and he was going to sell you as a sex worker as well as let his brother rape her and now your involved with this same man that did all these things? Did Busta redeem himself by intervening in her and Jazzy's fate ?, we will have to wait and see...
 
At this point Obi and Busta becoming involved she doesn't know that he had a hand in changing her fate and this is where my issues start.The being drawn to the dark and dangerous I understand and even the feeling the chemistry toward one another that is not always of your choosing I understand that to but, did you really just swept everything that happened up to this point under a rug?
 
Moving on I have to keep telling myself this is a book of fiction...
 
Obi is still my favorite character regardless of her choice in men and but, in reality they were perfect for one another and seem to be perfectly matched for one another.
 
Who am I to stand in the way of love....
 
 
Getting past my issues and  now getting to know more about the characters themselves and I am now feeling better that they are willing to make big changes in the club once that take care of one last piece of business.The book starts to get interesting and intense with secrets coming to life things start heating up and then they start to unravel the good and the bad I am totally glued to the page to the very end to see how it all play's out.
 
I will say as the story progressed we saw that there was a whole lot more to Busta then meets the eye.His own secrets are coming out and tons of drama occurring all around him and he methodically address each hit with ease.He is smarter than he looks and he is slowly redeeming himself....
 
 
I will say the plot this time around kept my interest and that is always a plus in my book and I like how the entire plot unfolded and played out and I thoroughly enjoyed these surprises we didn't see coming.
 
4 stars from us
as  the story deserved it despite my personal issues with it.
 
 
My  final thoughts...
 
I am having a hard time connecting with the characters in this series and this has been hard for me.The only character's that I liked at all where Obi and Jazzy.After this story things might change.I have  know problem with a main character that you have a love/hate relationship with but , at some point I want to be able to like a character at-least.I love reading books that emotionally engage you and I am not feeling any of that.Jazzy and Obi make me laugh that's true.Even the romance between Obi and Busta relationship was just about sex in the beginning but , when things changed between them I never felt they were really connected on an emotional level.I really missed that as I love rooting for character's when opposites attract but, wonder how they will make it work...
 
 
 
Let's just say that this book was not for me at all.I had so many personal issues with the story itself  for me to enjoy it. 
 
We can't love them all but ,I will post my thoughts in a another post as my issues can't be explained without spoilers..
 
 
Rook aka previously published as Envy
 
I will say that after reading this story about True & Kyden's story I was emotionally involved to the very end.This was such a heart wrenching tale to touch one's heart.
 
True was another MC member that I despised from the very beginning of meeting him so his actions and misdeeds in this story were no big surprise to me.
 
All ready despising True's character I didn't think he could sink any lower ."He did!" Tormenting your brother who is a priest! Your a very sick man indeed....
 
Kydem was a character that your heart bleed for from the very beginning of the story,You understood the demons that he carried within.Before entering the Priesthood he was not a good man but, he choose to redeem himself and save his soul and along the way tried the best he could to save others that were just like him.
 
Poor Kyden was never able to out run his demons whether personally ones or family ones because his brother would never let him escape his past and my heart broke even more for him.
 
The story really gripped your emotions ! I enjoyed getting the 411 on these characters.Although True was not a character I liked we gained a lot of insight to why he was the way he was.He was beyond redeemable in my eyes.
 
The story was pack with a ton of emotion and drama as well as heartbreak that kept you glued to the pages to the very end.We really enjoyed it!

Whitley’s main goal in survival is to stay unnoticed. A shadow against a wall, and nothing else. 
 
Taken by a Notorious Devil in the midst of chaos, she’s no longer unseen. 
 
Free, Vice President of the Devils has lived a lifetime of guilt. It consumes him, threatens to control him with every breath he takes. 
 
He was resigned to a lifetime of paying his penance for the past. At least, until he sees her. 
 
Scared, threatened, and young. She is his chance to lessen his guilty conscious—to protect an innocent.
 
BONUS SHORT STORY—DOUBLED WITH REGRET. 
 
 
 
*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Violence, Language, and Sexual Content.
 
 

 
 
 
 
I am really enjoying this series as it has a great cast of characters and the fact that the MC primary focus is freeing people in need,The cult that they are fighting against are mighty powerful but, so is this MC and their goal is to Free as many women and children from sexual slavery.
 
This story is of a serious matter and is graphic violent so reader beware....
 
I have to say that this was Free's story and I am going to be honest and say I was not liking his a** throughout half the story as we had a love hate relationship going on with him.I am glad he redeemed himself later on as I loved him in the other stories.
 
Favorite character is definitely Whitley as she was such a sweetheart.After everything she endured and after Free setting her free she set to the task to becoming herself once again.
 
Whitley was a survivor and given time she was learning she had a voice and opinions and Free was learning that she was a doormat know more...LOL
 
Free is making me mad as he is acting like a Cult member and that's not cool in my book.Free's conduct more than once left me wanting to kick his butt more than once but, I soon realized he was acting out of fear and guilt and all those jumbled up emotions he was carrying around and he was taking them out on Whitley instead of dealing with them head on.I loved that Whitley was patient with him and let him work things through at his own pace.What pissed me off as he should have realized she had her own issues to come to terms with too.She surprised me most of all as she carried the weight for both of them.
 
I loved being on Whitley's journey of finding herself again and how while healing she brought Free on is own journey as well .Free was finally living and being happy and able to finally lay the guilt he carried from his past once and for all.Whitley was Free's match hands down! The couple just clicked! The chemistry between them were super hot and their sexual interaction even hotter.Most of all Free's heart recognized Whitley as his from the onset of meeting her for the first time.
 
The story was very emotional and on top of all the drama happing around the club the story took some twists and turns and a few surprises that kept you turning each and every page to the very end.The story made me laugh,cry and emotional engaged my heart.I really loved the story and its characters as they were all engaging and a interesting lot!
 
We loved it and can't wait for the next installment.
 
Recommended read to all !
Be sure to check out the series as well we are loving it!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 







Omg ! What a great story.I am really loving this series and Snake and Peaches story was so heartfelt.
 
This story had so much going on that I was glued to the pages the entire time from beginning to end.The story was filled with drama, suspense,surprises and so much more.We loved it!
 
I have say that my heart went out to Peaches as what should have been the happiest time in her life was more like a nightmare but, she was a trooper though it all.So much suspense and intrigue....
 
Omg ! And Pres made my heart melt every time he was with is daughter especially during their hospital stay.Heart melting yet again!
 
Snake and Peaches are just super hot together! The sexual content was highly erotic and just kept getting hotter and hotter and this couple were definitely making up for lost time.Holy friggin Fanning !
 
 Haley is one of my favorite story tellers and for me and has become and author on my auto buy list and she never disappoints.
 
We also loved seeing a few of the other brothers hook up and find women of the own who will be needing a strong sexy biker to protect them and we will enjoy seeing what will become of them.
 
Another amazing tale from cover to cover!
 
Looking forward to the next tale this summer !


 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that Hayley is one of my favorite author's as she always creates wonderful character's for us to love and cry over each and every-time.
 
Crooner & Hayden made one hot super couple.the sparks and chemistry and the love they had for one another made it so easy to love and read about them and their amazing love story.
 
Hayden and Crooner have had past history albeit not a intimate one as Crooner took part in saving her from a hellish life that was filled with abuse and sexual slavery but, from the moment they meet each other they forged a bond with one another that would last a lifetime. The connection and trust between them was so strong that it was easy for Hayden to start trusting someone again and begin the healing process and Crooner was a big part of that.We fell in love with Crooner for the patience and kindness he showed her and her child.From the very beginning of their meeting each other Crooner started falling in love even though he fought it every step of the way. 
Omg ! his constant push and pull antic's became priceless'''
lol
 
I loved how they deeply cared for one another even when they were apart and that their intense friendship developed into so much more.
 
" I loved how it all unfolded once Crooner decided to take what had always been his!"
 
I always pick a favorite character and my choice this time around is going to be Crooner as I just loved him from the start.I loved that he was trying to be selfless along with being protective,caring,kind, and dangerous to those who tried to hurt the ones he loved.I found his personality to be larger than life even along with having that dark and dangerous side to him to that we love as well.What I loved most about him was the way he was with baby Easton and how he stepped right into father mode without even realizing it it was something that just came so naturally to him.
 
I love the lit bit of a cat and mouse game this couple had going on as Crooner was obsessing over Hayden and protecting her from himself  and yet fighting the inevitable .He reminded me of a caged tiger more than once.
 
"It was like whiplash sometimes lol."I understood Crooners reasonings but, I even saw from the beginning it was a doomed cause as he lost his heart to Easton and Hayden from the very beginning of their acquaintance.I think it was love at first sight for him for them both of them.
 
I have to mention that it amazed me at the strength and determination Hayden had. I loved the way she loved Easton with her whole heart considering that he came into this world because something was taken from her that was not freely given just makes her more amazing to me.Selfless love......
 
I have to say that I really loved the story from beginning to end as the story line dabbled into subject content that is a growing concern for women today and that if you are strong enough you can rise above the ashes.I loved  how something positive came out of a very bad situation and that meeting someone and other someones gave a beautiful soul a second chance at a new life.The story became very emotional at times as both Crooner and Hayden's demons kept creeping up and interfering in their new found relationship but, I loved how they just had to find their way together to overcome those obstacles.
 
Just made their love stronger....
 
I will say that as much as I loved see this couple happy and the love grow between them I knew that their happily ever after was going to be a rocky one and it broke my heart for the trials that they would have to incur but, knew one filled  with patience ,kindness and understanding would help them to achieve their kind of happiness they both deserved.
 
Another amazing hot and scorching read that was filled with a great cast of characters that made you laugh as well a want to cry.
 
Hot ! Hot! Hot!
 
I loved when you connect with the characters you read about and I was able to do that as both the main characters Hayden and Crooner and Easton were just so easy to love from the onset of the story.
 
Recommended read to all! Be sure to check out the first book in the Cash Bar series as that story was just as amazing!

“This couple may very well be one of my favorites by this author.” -Rose Reads
 
“I have read everything from L. Wilder and I can confidently say that her writing gets better and better.” -Donna Parrott
 
“Awesome storyline with phenomenal twist. This one is a definite must read.” -Julie Jackson/Goodreads Reviewer
 
 
Even as a kid, I knew the kind of hell the world could dish out. I grew to expect the worst and learned to face it head on. When I became Satan’s Fury’s new enforcer, I knew I could handle whatever came my way—until Alex Carpenter, the gorgeous book store owner who brought color into my world of gray.
 
The club was at war, fighting an unknown enemy, and she was a distraction I didn’t need nor want. My focus should’ve been on my brothers and our latest adversary, but I felt an unexplainable pull towards her. Her beauty and innocence captivated me, and just being near her made the shadows of my past seem less daunting. Without even realizing it, I let her in, but as we grew closer, I quickly realized that her walls were even more guarded than my own. 
 
Like me, Alex had a past filled with secrets. Could our broken souls find a way to mend together, or would we remain imprisoned by our past?
 
 
 
 
 
I loved this story and I am loving this series as well and all the characters in it !
 
This was just a really cute and super sweet romance read with a little bit of drama and a tale filled with a whole lot of secrets.
 
Alex was a favorite of mine as she was just super sweet ,caring loving, and witty and made me laugh time and time again.
 
I loved Shadow as well and I loved seeing him open himself up and taking a chance on loving someone and being loved in return.Shadow was a little big broken so this was a big step for him.
 
Alex and Shadow were super sweet together.I loved that their romance was a little bit of a whirlwind.This couple had amazing chemistry and I love seeing them together and they we also amazing in and out of bed as we had some super sexy scenes.
 
I loved the plot and how it all played out.I enjoyed the fact that Alex as Shadow's Old Lady played and important part in the outcome of the story.There's a first time for everything...I found Alex to be unbelievable strong to leave it all behind to save the ones she loves.What I loved most about her was not only did she fall in love with Shadow hard and fast she did so with his MC family as well.
 
This story was where opposites attract and end up being just what the other needs making them perfect for one another.We loved the story from beginning to end and everything in between!
 
Recommended read to all!
Be sure to check out the series to as it totally awesome !
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I heard the loud rumble of several motorcycles approaching, and as they got closer, I noticed something familiar about one of the men. Even in the pitch black of night, I knew it was him—the hot biker from the bookstore. I stood frozen in place as he and his friend whipped past me.
A black SUV pulled in right behind them and they all parked near the front door of Newman’s. I watched in awe as he got off his motorcycle and removed his helmet. He turned to look in my direction, and as those penetrating blue eyes locked on mine, all my sense of reason seemed to just wash away. I couldn’t move. My pulse was racing, my palms were sweating, and my hormones were raging. He looked so damn good with his dark hair tousled, and it was impossible not to notice how his jeans clung to him in all the right places. I was a complete mess. No man had ever had such an effect on me. I didn’t like it. I wanted to get into my car and shake it off, but when I realized that he was leaving his two friends to walk in my direction, my mind and body just wouldn’t cooperate. I simply stood there like a total idiot.
After he finally made his way over to me, I was surprised by his furrowed brow and intense expression. He just stood there staring at me for several seconds, and having no idea what else to do, I mumbled, “It’s you.”
“Yeah. It’s me.”
“I’m sorry … I don’t actually know your name.”
“It’s Shadow.” Before I could respond, he took a quick glance around the parking lot and asked, “You out here alone?”
“Yeah … I was just about to head home.”
“You shouldn’t be out here by yourself. It’s not safe,” he growled.
Surprised by his fierce tone, I became even more nervous and started to ramble. “I’m okay. My friends are inside. We were watching the band. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of them … the Smoking Guns. They’re pretty good. Not exactly my thing. A little loud for my taste. Not the loudest one I’ve ever been to, but close. At least I had an excuse to leave early … I have a shipment coming in tomorrow morning, so I need to be at the store early. What about you? Are you here to see the band, too?”
“Not exactly.” Without giving further explanation, he asked, “Where’s your car?”
“Um … it’s right over there,” I answered as I pointed in its direction.
He leaned to the side as he looked around me and grimaced, clearly not impressed by the state of my vehicle. “That’s your car?”
“Yeah. I know it’s not much, but it gets me to where I’m going.”
Just when I thought the moment couldn’t get any more uncomfortable, Jason stepped out of the bar, and as he glared at the burly biker standing next to me, he shouted, “Hey, Alex? You okay?”
“Yeah. I’m good. I was just about to leave.” When he didn’t move, I said, “You’re going to miss the closer if you don’t go back inside.”
“You’re sure you’re okay?”
“Yes, Jason. I’m fine.”
“Okay. Don’t forget to text me when you get home.”
“I will. Don’t worry.”
Once he was gone, I turned my attention back to my biker. He studied me for a moment, his eyes lingering on my mouth for only a fleeting moment; then, without saying a word, he started walking towards my car. Having no idea what he was doing, I just stood there trying to wrap my head around exactly what was happening. He turned around and looked over at me then said, “I thought you were leaving.”
“I am.” He cocked his eyebrow as he motioned his hand towards the driver’s side door. Feeling like a complete idiot, I rushed over to him and quickly unlocked my door.
He watched me get inside and asked, “You okay to drive?”
“Yes, I’m fine.” He again stared at me for a moment like he was trying to decide if I really was okay. “Seriously. I had one beer two hours ago. I’m fine.”
“Good.”
I expected him to step back, but he just stood there looking down at me. I felt warm all over, my heart was pounding so loudly that I was certain he could hear it. I felt my face turning red, and not wanting him to see my body’s reaction to him, I said, “Your motorcycle is really something. I bet it’s awesome to ride on a night like this.”
“It is.”
“Okay, well … I guess I better get going.” With a bit of hesitation, I put my hand on the door handle and as I started to close it, I said, “Thanks for walking me to my car.”
His expression softened as he moved out of the way and said, “Be careful.”
“I will. Thanks.”
After I closed the door, I gave him a smile and a quick wave goodbye, then started my engine. As I pulled out of the parking lot, I glanced up at my rearview mirror, and a chill ran down my spine when I noticed he was still standing in the same spot, watching intently as I drove out onto the main road.

“Damn,” I muttered to myself.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
