This was a great edition to the ongoing series.I really loved Beast in this story because I was having my doubts if I was going to like him at all and then when we saw he was attracted to Janie "well ", I thought this arrogant a** isn't going to stand a chance with her and "boy", was a wrong. lol
I loved Janie even if she was not the typical socialite wife because that is what we loved about her the most as she made the perfect one but, she was so much more.We found Janie to be fun and determined and we really saw her take charge of her life even after mishap after mishap was getting in the way she stood strong and proud and made the best of it but, one thing for sure is that arrogant prick of a husband of hers didn't know his women at all if he thought she was just going to take what he dished out lying down.
Beast was one of those characters that is all alpha all of the time but, he has been learning to dial it back a bit if he wants to catch the girl and keep her because she is not the type any longer who will put up with a man lording over her.I loved his struggles with thinking he was not good enough for Janie when he was just the type of man she did need in and out of bed and "boy", did these two have some awesome chemistry.
Overall we really enjoyed the story and although it was quite different then the other stories in this series and not as suspenseful this story had more of and interaction with the club old ladies and the other members and we really loved that and by the end of the story there was no doubt in my mind the both Janie and Beast were destined to be soulmates as they made a wonderful couple .
We are so loving this series and the wonderful characters that it has .
Humm...Not sure where to start with this one other than the fact that I had a lot of mixed feelings about the story and although I didn't love it I didn't hate it but, for me I just could not connect with the characters as they were like-able but, not love-able.
I thinks the bottom line is that these authors did not give you enough time to bond with these characters if you had already read some of the previous books in this series you might have already known somethings about them but, for us just coming into the series we new very few facts about them other then a few things that were mentioned in passing so this did not give a chance to get to know more about their past of present other that the facts of what clan they worked and belonged to and what they did for a living although we rationed out how this couple was already connected to one another . The other thing that did not work for me is where was the part that engaged the readers emotions because I felt that every move made just felt clinical as well as cut and dry.
For example though my eyes
Isabella is forced to go under for the CIA really being blackmailed and although they tried to give her some tools to protect her they were not enough and Isabella already knew what kind of man she would be dealing with and expected that she would have to make personal sacrifices so she wanted to have a choice in giving something like her virginity away to someone she loved without it being taken from her.The whole scene just played out and it was like no feelings were even involved at all and for me and doing the whole deed was just like they were going through the motions and it was like their was no connection between the characters at all. This should have been down right hot and scorching for this couple as she was secretly in love with Marcellus for years and even though Marcellus never admitted it he lusted after her for years so where was all the passion the fire the build up in their coming together ? Their intimate moments should have been explosive!
After everything that Isabella endured at the hands of a monster she just seems to go on with her life as if nothing tragic/sick/painful just happened to her as their is no breakdown ? no emotional pain?nothing?she showed no emotions what so ever and even after her explaining and Marcellus hearing her story that man should have been a raving lunatic out for blood and revenge and wanting vengeance "yes", he was pissed but, he should have wanted to be the one to take out anyone who hurt her and we understood that others parties involved had a stake in what was happening and not that we expected him to carry out any of these things because of the circumstances but, he sure as hell should have wanted to do these things to avenge a women who belonged to him and in there lies yet another problem when I said I felt no emotional attachment to any of these characters he was a made man in the mafia for christ sakes and then you had the fact that not once did I hear these two main characters say I love you face to face.
I know this book is fictional and sometimes as readers we have to keep reminding ourselves when reading stories like this and that their not real but, the reason we read stories with fictional mafia related characters is for the fact their filled with danger and suspense and a whole lot of hot alpha men then you have the twisted plots and the excitement and plots that engage the readers emotions to the tune you have a personal stake in their outcome an so forth and all these things just fell flat for me in this story because I felt all these things were missing from this ongoing story.
Although this story was not personally for us it was enjoyable enough to pass the time and we did like the fact the we were indeed surprised that the CIA had another fish on their hook as they say to do their dirty work for them and that was a big surprise that we didn't see coming of who that person was "so", we did indeed love that part.
We really are loving the characters in this series and we loved that we finally got to read about the mysterious Beaumont as he had us already intrigued from the first time meeting him and we loved him even more so this time around but, Hutton on the other hand took a little bit of warming up to not that she wasn't beautiful and kind and caring it was just that she seemed so fragile and had us wondering if she would be capable or even up to the task of loving a man such as Beau who was always in the limelight and so famous and all the baggage that comes with loving a man with said status.
I loved the fierceness and the protectiveness of Beaumont's friends they were truly his family and always had his back even the women of the men he called family.
I love a story when its about second chances because for Hutton she was only living a half a life without the man she gave her heart away to all those years ago and then you have Beau even though he broke her heart all those years ago has never forgotten her and was always in his thoughts.
This was such a sweet and endearing read and we loved that Beau stuck to his guns and made changes to his health and sobriety and they were the most important things to keeping him on track other than winning back the love of his life.
"He made us so proud as he was such a good man at heart but, got a little bit lost for a bit."
Although the story started out sad we think that Beaumont made the right choice at the time as he would have never been able to give Hutton all of himself and I think he needed to go through all that he did to become the man that Hutton deserved and the man that he to wanted to be all along.
We loved the chemistry between Hutton and Beau it was sweet and hot and all so romantic.
"This was such a beautiful story and we loved it from beginning to end!"
Let's start off by saying that this is a first time author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them.
The story drew you right in from the very first moment and kept you turning the pages right to the very end as it was intriguing and suspenseful and a heart felt emotional read.
Evander/Doc/Patch was one of my favorite characters right from the onset of the story.Patch is a real-time doctor and also a patch member who has suffered unbelievable loss in his life which has affected his life daily as he carries around unbelievable guilt that ways him down but, he was also about healing and justice most of all has a great big hug heart .
Alaska was a amazing mom mother to Grace and was a women who was strong and determined had a bit of sass but, she was also a survivor who did what was necessary and the best she could to take care of her little girl even through dire circumstances she did her best.We loved Alaska from the onset of meeting her she never let life beat her down .
Grace was another character you could not help but, fall in love with.Being deaf from birth the girl melted hearts whoever she came in contact with and after years of heartbreak she did the impossible she made Patch feel something again and is melting that ice around his heart and he was not only falling in love with the mother he was also falling in love with the daughter as well.
We really enjoyed the story from beginning to end.One of the things we loved the most about the story was it was its characters as they were awesome and funny and specially Willow Priest their Presidents old lady these badass bikers were afraid of her sass .lol
The story had suspense and intrigue and love but, it was also about healing and moving on and showed us the lengths one would go to protect those they love and now call family.The road to love for both Patch and Alaska was not and easy one but, for Patch it will be worth it in end the as he tries to put his past behind him and who new that fate would put Alaska in his path once again to right a wrongs done to her so many years ago.
For us overall it was a well written tale that we loved beginning to end and can't wait to read Bullet's read next as it is going to be and interesting one.
This was another great read in this ongoing series.I love a story that has strong female characters and this story had just that.Roxanne has grown up in a military household and her father and brothers made sure she was able to protect herself so its not surprising that she takes it upon herself to solve the murders of her parents and a foreign military dignitary in their mitts.
I loved Roxanne from the onset of the story as she was a strong character also smart and clever as well as sassy and a women who grew up in a home with tons of love.
Hawk Delaney was a character who is all about getting the job done and a man who is definitely haunted with his past after 10 years of guarding his heart one slip of a girl has shaken the man to his core.
I loved the story from beginning to end and everything in between and I have to say I think Roxanne rocked throughout the whole story with her working with the team of GHOST members she was finally getting the answers she had been wanting and was a big part of solving her own mystery and we just loved that.The story drew you in right from the very beginning as it was action packed and intriguing to the very end .One thing we also loved is that the story has a really great cast of characters that make you laugh and they all have a wicked sense of humor and even the slightly broken ones start healing when they meet the one meant for them.
We can't wait to see what happens next !
This was such as an amazing read as it was heartfelt and emotional and makes you realize we should live our life to the fullness each and everyday.
I have to say I felt the pain that Amanda was living with the author made it feel real and you were right along side her experiencing the loss and heartache she was.
Amanda was a character easy to love and it was apparent from the onset of the story deeply in love with her husband and her heartbreak and loss overwhelming at times.
A chance meeting between Alex and Amanda puts both of them on the path of healing and letting go of ones past and moving forward.The courtship of you could call it between this couple was quite endearing and heartfelt and a little bit scary for both of them.
Alex was a character that you could not help but fall in love immediately and him beginning an ex military soldier himself understood her feelings and what she was experiencing with the loss of her husband but, also admired her for her the strength and determination that it takes to love a military man.
A beautiful story and and even more beautiful ending of a story that definitely tugged at the heartstrings of this reader.
Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us and we really enjoyed out first read by them and I have to say it is going to take a bit of getting used to the authors writing style but, I have to say that this story was heartfelt and endearing and emotional with flawed characters that feel undeserving.
We loved both the main characters Blade and Jenn from the onset of the story.This couple just clicked for one another right from the onset of their first meeting.
As the story progressed the couple grew closer in a short of amount of time and things starting happening for them at warp speed but, it just worked for them sometime you just know there the one and the chemistry was explosive.
Jenn's character surprised me the most as she was one tough cookie who had this huge heart and was beautiful on the inside as she was out.
Blade was a man struggling with some personal issues where he felt vulnerable and unworthy but, the love of a good women is about to change all that.
The story revolves around a bunch of ex military solider's who found a place in a MC and once again part of a brotherhood.Some of these members struggle more that others but, their feelings and fears are real and when they start to spiral their brothers are to take each others backs.
Overall I have to say we loved it from beginning to end and we are also so loving these characters the are all worming they way into my heart already.
"So loving this series so far !"
"We really loved this latest installment !"
I have to say that this is one of my favorite installments in this series. I absolutely loved these main characters Roll and Trixie.
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to me Trixie. Trixie was a firecracker and she was also funny and was a tell in like it is kind of gal and she was also bright and funny and a freak in the sheets. "We loved her instantly !" We loved that although Trixie had a rough start in life she did not let it destroyed her it just made her into a strong and independent women and one who doesn't give a crap what others think of her she lives her life just they way she wants to.
Roll was another character easy to love.We found him to be dark and brute -y and sexy as sin and he is a man who has many layers and has many moods but, he is also a man who enjoys no commitments but, there has been only one women to capture his heart and the only one to penetrate some of those layers but ,not enough to give up his freedom.
Trixie and Roll had amazing chemistry and were the perfect fit for one another until they weren't.
Overall we really enjoyed the story as it was funny and engaging and when things heated up and Roll realized he could have lost what he loved most in this world in a blink of an eye it changes a man and makes him realize his fears were no longer and issue it was about winning the girl he always considered his. It reminds me of phase
"Bring it on !"
This story was also filled with tons of great characters that were engaging and funny and it was also filled with a ton of hot alpha men that we couldn't get enough of.We loved Trixie she made us laugh out loud this entire story and that just made us love this story even more.
"This story was totally hot !"
Recommended read to all
Wow ! Just Wow! Where to start ? I was on pins and needles the entire time reading this story. Omg ! was this story really good it kept me on edge the entire time I was reading it.The subject matter was dark and intense and the plot engaging and suspenseful and full of twists and turns and emotional pain and was this story and emotional one.I don't know what to say other than that this story drew you right in from the very beginning and kept you there to the very bitter end.This story definitely one that touched on the readers emotions as you felt the pain of these two main characters and their struggles.
Cosima was a character who was beautiful and loving and strong and determined and lost and trying to find her a path in a new life that she created for herself but, one thing she has never been able to conquer is her feelings for her master/husband Alexander and it is only something he can provide for her and her happiness depends on it.
Alexander was one dark and dangerous man but, he was also smart and cunning and Cosmia is the only person who has ever made him feel anything close to being human and he will do everything and anything to protect her and own her body and soul to the bitter end. If I am being honest this man scared that crap out of me.
Overall we loved the story from being to end.The story had amazing characters and there was never a dull moment.The story was very dark and intense and not one for the faint of heart and one for only the open minded because it is very dark and the bdsm to the extreme that is full of pleasure and pain and only one a master and slave will ever understand the depths of emotions and pleasures this kind of relationship brings but, it is one that both parties need to embrace the dark in order to be happy. Cosmia life will be always be controlled by Alexander and his dominate nature and as she is carving out a new life for herself through sheer work determination she needs to make a choice to place herself fully in the hands of the dark and dangerous lord because once she does she will be forever owned and nothing but death with ever separate them again.....
One Enthralling read and Miss Darling is a master storyteller for sure and we have thoroughly enjoyed everything we and read from her so far and this story yet, again an was and amazing read for us !
Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us and we really enjoyed out first read by them.
We really enjoyed the story it had a cute plot and it was loaded with humor and the entire story had a great bunch of characters.
Riley we loved instantly from being introduced to him as he was sexy and funny and I love how close he was to his family and how protective he was of his sister but, most of all we loved that he had know problem putting his feeling out their and being a little bit vulnerable.
Zoey was one of those characters you had to warm up to its not that she wasn't personable because she was funny and could be out going but, she had a problem standing up for herself and we new she had it in her to be strong and take what she whats but, when push comes to shove will she cave or find the happiness she deserves."Because of this we kept seeing a trail of broken hearts and heartache in this couple future."
We loved the chemistry these two had it was clear they were meant for one another but, it was going to take more than one of them to fight for the future they could have.
Overall we found the story to be cute and entertaining had a great cast of characters and we loved the usual courtship where one tries to woo the women they are already married to as it made us smile throughout the entire story as some of the scenes were cute and endearing. A great light read and we are so looking forward to Rowan and Diesel's story.
Wow ! Ms. Cooke does it again what a fantastic read.We loved Hawk's story from beginning to end.I am so glad we got to hear Hawk's story as he was one of the most elusive members of the series who kept himself and his life outside private.
We loved Hawk in this story and you could say even that he was a bit of a hero for all the sacrifices that he made for his club and for all those he loved.I loved the fact that we saw a totally different side of Hawk this time around we saw him and a protector and provider and deep down a man capable of loving with his whole heart even if it was broken a time or too.
There was know doubt that Hawk could be dark and dangerous but, he was capable of so much more and we are just wondering if just one of the women he loved suck around his life might have been so much different.
We found Hawk to be smart and cunning as well and if Doc Marshall was not in charge he would have no problem seeing to that club of his in his own right.I got to say we never realized the extent Hawk went to too protect Doc Marshall and his club making great sacrifices to himself while pretty boy Marshall just skated through life while everybody else paid the price for all of his bad choices.
Overall we just loved the story from cover it was intriguing and heartfelt and we loved seeing that Hawk although down right dangerous was capable of compassion and forgiveness and we just loved his protectiveness of those he loved.Despite the life he lead he did have people he loved and loved him back.Hawk's story was not all hearts and flowers and it was a bit dark but, one thing was sure the darkness that he carried within him never consumed him or it.
I think we have not heard the last of Hawk as I am waiting to see what impact he has on Lion's life and that of the mysterious daughter of his...
5 amazing stars from us
First off let us start off my saying that we love the cover and we really loved this current story.
This story was fun and intriguing and had a cast of amazing characters that we could not help but love them all.Once we started reading we were engrossed in the story to the very end and we could not put it down.
Wyatt we loved her from the onset of the story with her quick whit and vibrant personality which was a tell it like it is kind of girl and she was also a sexy and strong character even though she likes to play things safe but, that all changed the minute an arrogant biker decided to woo her.
Sundance Hum....that man was a whole lot of alpha and crude,arrogant and bit of and a-hole but, we have to say falling for a strong independent women had him toning things down and bit and we could help but love the sexy beast of the man ourselves.
The chemistry between these two was totally hot and sexy and the sex scenes definitely fan worthy."Smokin Hot"
I loved the plot and Wyatt and the way she cared for and love her brother aka Teddy Bear who had disabilities and we love how he captured hearts where ever he went.
Overall a really loved this story as it made us laugh out loud the entire story and had a bit of suspense and betrayals and lets not forget it had a awesome cast of characters and that love was found in the most usual of places and it was a love story that was paved with a lot of bumps in the road and a whole lot of groveling .... lol
We have so say that this story had one of my favorite endings.This story was also one that you were still thinking about days later and when it is still on your mind days later that for me just makes this one fantastic read for us !
