ONLY THROUGH BLOOD CAN THE DEEPEST REDEMPTION BE FOUND…


He was born to ascend.
He was destined to lead.

Prophet Cain lies broken and defeated on the floor of his cell. A cell he has been thrown into by the one person who was supposed to stand by his side until the end. His flesh and blood, his only companion. His beloved twin brother.

Cain has sacrificed everything for his people. He left the safety and security of his life of study to infiltrate the infamous Hades Hangmen. He lived with them, rode with them, and then betrayed them. All in the name of a faith he can now feel slipping away from him. Like everything else he once held dear…

But then his isolation is broken. Another prisoner is brought to the cell next to his. A woman fighting her own demons and fears. A woman who Cain understands needs him, as he needs her.

As the connection between them grows, so does Cain’s resolve. He will right the wrongs he has done. He will atone for the evil acts carried out in his name. He will save the one he loves…

… Even if the battle takes him to the gates of hell itself.

Contemporary Dark Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

Review

I have loved the Hades Hangmen MC series since the very beginning and I was so excited to read Rider’s story! I’ve always had a love hate relationship with him so I was intrigued to read his book. This book is not a standalone so if you haven’t read the previous books go ahead and do that now!

As we know from previous books Rider is actually Prophet Cain, the leader of the religious cult Mae, Lilah and Maddie come from. At the end of the last book his twin brother Judah had swapped places with him and locked him into cell hoping to bring him back into the fold. It is here that we find him at the beginning of Deep Redemption. I don’t want to spoil this amazing book for you so all I will say is the book follows Rider’s journey of redemption; how a certain girl changes his life and how together they fight for their future.

I loved every minute of this book, especially the glimpses we get of all of our favourite MC characters! Having had mixed feelings about Rider previously it was great to get inside of his head and fall for him as much as I did for the other boys! I would definitely recommend this emotional, amazing book!

Blurb
I’ve loved Danny since I was five.
He’s loved me longer.
It seemed destined that we would be together, it seemed like the stars had aligned.
Then we grew up and life got in the way.
He’s stepping up to be president of the Motorcycle club we grew up in.
And I want no part in it.
I want to be free, to travel the world and experience life without violence.
He’s not willing to give up the club.
I’m not willing to be an old lady.
But giving him up is like losing a part of myself.
Love isn’t easy.
Life certainly never is.
The manacles he has wrapped around me will hold me to him.
No matter how hard I try to run.
Review

I have loved each and every book in this series and the ones before about their parents! After all the hints we finally get to hear about Danny & Skye’s  story.

Danny has always been it for Skye, no man has ever lived up to him. The amazing thing is she’s it for him too and yet Skye still isn’t happy. She’s grown up loving the club and their way of life – the club is her family. But their club hasn’t been the safe haven she’s always known it to be of late. Her friends, her family, have been taken, tortured and some have died for their club. And after all that suffering Skye can’t live that life, she needs to be free from the club and try to have a “normal” life. The problem with that? Danny doesn’t want that, the club is still his life and he isn’t leaving it. Even for Skye. Skye has made a new life for herself away from the club but is it really what she wants? Is her life really anything without Danny in it?

I loved every minute of Danny and Skye’s story! There was drama, passion, suspense – Manacle had it all. I devoured this book in a matter of hours and loved every minute of it. Highly Recommended!

They say opposites attract.
In my world that isn’t a good thing.
I did everything I could to escape the motorcycle club I grew up in when I turned twenty-one.
It wasn’t about fear, or betrayal, or even lack of love.
I just needed my own life.
I had to know how it felt to stand on my own two feet without their protection.
Then I met Diesel.
Mysterious, dark, with eyes that screamed to be understood.
From the second I met him, I knew I needed to be in his life.
There’s just one problem – he’s a member of a different motorcycle club.
Two things that should never be combined.
Yet I can’t stay away. No matter how hard he pushes. I can see beyond his mask.
I need to know who he is and I’ll overcome any obstacle to be in his life.
A friendship is born, followed by an epic love.
Our relationship is forbidden.
But I’ll do anything to be in his life.
Anything.

Review
I received a free copy for an honest review

Words cannot describe how much I LOVED this book! To be honest I love everything that Bella Jewel publishes so this didn’t come as much of a surprise! I really don’t want to ruin this fabulous read so I’ll keep my review short.

Ava is the beloved daughter of the Knights Sinners MC president, Jackson. She has spent her life constantly watched by the bikers, and has only just got her father to agree to her living on her own. She has never lied to her parents but when a tragic event makes her life a living hell she can’t let them see how broken she truly is. 

No one noticed, no one understood…until him. He was a stranger, a man she should in no way trust but he was the only one who truly understood her pain. Men like him and her father are never meant to get on, but when Ava’s life is put in danger will they be able to work out there differences?

This book was gripping from start to finish. I absolutely loved Ava and Lucas’ story and I especially loved Lucas! I definitely could have read more about him! I can NOT wait for more!

Souls Unfractured (Hades Hangmen #3) by Tillie Cole

This week the third book in the Hades Hangmen series by Tillie Cole, Souls Unfractured was released! And I could not have been more excited for Flame and Maddie’s story!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00049]

Blurb

“For fractured souls are like magnets.

Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…”

Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.

Just… free…

At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.

Flame.

The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.

But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.

The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame’s days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…

… the only person who has ever been able to touch him.

Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.

His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.

His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.

review

I have been waiting for this book for so long! Much like every other fan I think. Flame’s story has always been such a mystery – what do the flames, the number of 11 and the cutting all mean? And now we finally know!

Flame, like Maddie, was raised in a strict religious household but their beliefs were twisted. He has suffered cruelty and severe pain by the hands of people who should have cared for him and not instilled the self-hatred he has into him instead. Now with the Hangmen, Flame still suffers from the memories of his past and the beliefs he was taught. When Maddie entered his life everything changed. He touched her and she touched him…and the flames didn’t burn her.

When Flame killed the man who had tortured Maddie for all those years, he saved her. Now, when Flame needs help the most, it’s time for her to save him. What follows is a beautiful, heart-wrenching and utterly captivating story where two broken souls learn to heal each other. Both of them fear to be touched but crave the comfort of each other’s embrace. Together they must overcome their pasts and try to find peace.

Each book in this series has left me speechless. I’ve cried and my heart squeezed for each couple and their journey together. But this book? Wow. It’s mesmerizing, heart breaking and just plain beautiful. You will fall hopelessly in love with Flame, and your heart will ache for him from start to finish. As for Maddie, her quiet strength and her undeniable love for Flame will leave you equally as emotional. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard. Each book Tillie writes leaves me reeling and always with that well known Book Hangover we just love to talk about – Souls Unfractured is no exception. In fact I’d say it left me more emotionally messed up than ever before and I definitely had a bad case of happy tears at the end.

A book that’s as beautiful and mesmerising as it’s cover, I won’t be forgetting this brilliant read for a long time to come.

EXCERPT

I sat bolt up right in the chair and stared at the dark line of the forest. My heart slammed against my ribcage when a figure emerged from the heavy foliage.

My breathing paused, fear taking hold, then a familiar pair of leather boots and trousers entered the moonlit lawn. Blades hung at his sides, and his torso was naked under the heavy leather cut.

Flame.

My heart, that was already racing, seemed to beat at an impossible speed. And then Flame lifted his head, and it ceased to beat at all.

The frown that was on his face instantly blanked. His lips mumbling something under his breath, stilling mid-speech.

I clutched the blanket lying over my knees to my chest. I remained frozen, as did Flame. I had not expected him to come tonight, his friend had taken him back to his home. I could see from my window how exhausted he had been. I could see, even in the haze of moonlight, how tired he was still.

Flame’s hands clenched at his sides. His chest heaved with movement that was too quick, then he abruptly turned on his heel, and with a rigid back, he headed back into the forest.

My stomach sank as he turned to leave, and without conscious thought, I slammed my sketchpad shut, shuffled to the edge of the seat and called out, “Wait! Do not go!”

Flame stopped dead.

As did I.

Swallowing back my nerves, my shock at what I had just done, I said, “Please, Flame. Do not go… I… I am glad you are here.”

Flame’s fingers curled and uncurled at his side, then straightening his shoulders, he slowly turned. His large frame was rigid as he faced me once more. Then he just stood. Stood at the end of the forest, his attention fixed forward.

But I wanted him closer.

Still perched on the edge of my seat, I asked, “Would you like to come closer? I… I have been sitting out here alone as I could not sleep. It…” I took a deep breath, fighting my natural instinct to flee, and continued. “It would be nice to have some company.”

Flame remained still, his rigid body convincing me that he would not come any nearer. Then, to my surprise, he began walking, his powerful legs bringing him closer to where I sat.

In the still and silent night, I could hear him counting his steps one to eleven, then repeating it back to himself under his breath. My head tilted to the side as he approached, a swirl of anticipation and fear mixing in my stomach.

His skin on his arms looked newly cut, and I could not help but feel sad for him. For whatever had happened to make him need to harm himself in such a way. Grasping the blade in his hand, his fingers tightened on the handle. Like he needed the blade as a comfort.

As though he was nervous to be here with me now.

Inhaling a long breath, I asked quietly, “Would you like to sit?” I pointed at the chair to in front of mine. Flame looked at the chair through his long black lashes, and exhaling sharply through his nose, sat beside me. I smelled the oil and leather. I smelled the rich musk and spice scent that only belonged to Flame and warmth filled my bones.

He was sat beside me.

Flame was sitting right beside me.

Dropping my eyes to the frayed edges of the gray blanket wrapped around me, I played with the clustered strands of wool just for something to help with the nerves accosting my body.

But Flame was absolutely still. Absolutely silent.

Then I glanced to the side only to see him watching. As soon as our eyes met, he dropped his. A blush raced to fill my cheeks, and for some unknown reason, a whisper of a smile pulled on the corner of my mouth.

Lifting my head, I stared at the large moon, and found the courage to speak, “I did not think you would be coming to see me tonight.”

After several seconds of silence, I believed Flame would not respond. Until I caught him shift in his seat, and he said roughly, “I couldn’t stay away.”

My pulse raced at his response and I whispered, “Why?”

Flame’s shoulder shrugged, then focusing back on the blade in his hand, he said, “I couldn’t stop thinking about you. And I…” Flame trailed off.

“And what?” I pushed.

“I needed to be near you. I needed to know you were safe.”

Devil’s Blood (Royal Blood #3) by Amity Cross

Not for the faint hearted Devil’s Blood is the third book in the Royal Blood series by Amity Cross. If you like dark romances this is one for you.

Blurb
We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.

Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster. Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.

After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?

Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.

Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.

The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?

Review

The Royal Blood series has been a dark and sometimes difficult read. Full of suspense, intrigue and a gripping storyline, the third book Devil’s Blood is no less captivating than the other books.

With Skyes gone, X and Mercy thought their difficult times may be past but with Royal Blood still on their tail that isn’t an option. X’s conditioning is slowly fading away and his memories are gradually coming back to him. As much as Mercy insists, X doesn’t want to know who he once was – what good would come of it? But his past doesn’t want him to forget and when it catches up to him X must embrace who he once was.

With Royal Blood out for blood they will do anything to keep X in line – even by going after his woman. Mercy is hell bent on getting the answers whether X wants them or not, no matter the cost to herself. When things don’t go as planned, Xavier has no choice but to find out the answer to the question he’s done everything to avoid – who is Xavier Blood?

Devil’s Blood is no less graphic or dark than the rest of the series but what a read! Gripping from start to finish, you never know what’s going to happen next. And of course it’s just as hot and steamy as the other books. All in all a great read – just don’t start this one if you’re in the mood for fairytales and sappy love stories because when the blood starts flying everywhere you’ll be sorely disappointed!

Leather & Lace (Inferno Glory MC #1) by J.A. Fredericks

Today is the release day for Leather & Lace the first part in the Inferno Glory MC serial! If you love a hot, drama packed MC series this is one for you!

Blurb

*This is a serial. The installments are not novel length.*

The day Harley Sonnick is released from a three year prison sentence for a crime she didn’t willingly commit, she returns to the only family she has left—the Inferno Glory MC. But the club’s president isn’t ready to forgive her for past sins and turns her away, forcing her to trust in a new club member who’s arguably the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on.

Colt Sawyer, a young military veteran like the other MC members, is elusive and doesn’t have much to do with the women throwing themselves at him until Harley comes riding into his life on her own motorcycle. Together with his best friend and fellow MC member Ranger, Colt will do everything in his power to remind Harley what it’s like to be pleasured by a man and make her feel at home despite the reluctance of the MC.

Things take an unexpected turn when Harley’s worldly possessions are ripped away, forcing her to rethink her future. But she isn’t a pathetic princess in need of saving and is reluctant to accept help. Prison made her hard, forcing her to guard her feelings at all costs. So when dark, blue eyed Colt does inexplicable things to both her body and heart, she’s forced down a dark path of passion and desire that threatens all the safeguards she’s set in place.

 

Review

Harley has just been released from prison after serving for 3 years. Only having her Dad for most of her childhood she spent a great deal of time at his MC club house – the brothers there becoming her family. After her father dying during her sentence she no longer has anywhere to call home. Returning to the MC seems to be her only option left but after everything she isn’t sure whether she’ll be welcomed home with open arms or turned away.

When she arrives she meets the elusive, panty-melting Colt Sawyer who brings her to the club President. When she’s turned away she has no choice but to put her trust in Colt and accept his kindness. As her life continues to disintegrate she finds herself putting more and more of her life in Colt’s hand but having lived in a prison where you learn to never put your trust in anyone and to look after yourself, she finds trusting him a difficult task.

When things take a turn for the worst, she has a choice to make. Flee her old life and start anew somewhere new but completely on her own or take a risk and stay with the MC and potentially give both her trust and her heart to a man she has only just met.

This is the first part in a brand new MC romance serial and what a start! I really enjoyed this story with it’s strong, feisty heroine Harley, the alpha bad mouthed Colt and the thrilling fast paced storyline which will grip you until the brilliant cliffhanger! Can’t wait to read more from this series!

Review

 As the third book in the series we know a little bit about Gabe. We know he has a troubled past, one which has caused bad blood between him and the Kings. Healing Gabe tells the tale of how Gabe joined the Hangmen and what really happened all those years ago.

After a horrific accident when Gabe was younger he became the sole carer to his little sister. Looking after her became his life, that was until he stepped in on something he shouldn’t have and changed the course of their lives forever. Having joined the Hangmen with no other choice, he gets mixed up in club drama. Two girls changed his life – made him who he was today and gave him the heavy burden of guilt and the emotional scars he lives with every day, and night. He thought that part of his life was over, that was until she walked back in.

Vivian is tired of running. After 12 years she can’t take the lonely life she’s led and decides to head home to the only people she has left. She knew she would see him again, knew it was inevitable but nothing could have prepared her for the way she felt when they were reunited again. She knows her attraction to him is wrong, knows that they can never be together but having felt like this for so long, the attraction is hard to resist.

Gabe and Viv, together, start to heal one another but nothing is ever that easy. Secrets, lies and betrayals are uncovered, ones which can never be forgiven. With their lives at risk, as well as the rest of the club will they finally be able to put this war and the past behind them and move forward, together?

Having read all three books in this series I can safely say this was the best one yet! Full of drama, secrets and incredible twists Healing Gabe will have you hooked from start to finish. I really loved Viv and Gabe as a couple and their story was utterly heart-breaking. An emotional rollercoaster with shocking turns of events, this is definitely one to add to your TBRs!

Heart Recaptured by Tillie Cole

This week is the release week for Tillie Cole’s latest book Heart Recaptured, Book 2 in the Hades Hangmen series and Ky and Lilah’s story – finally! Tillie very generously provided me with an ARC a few weeks back so I’m afraid I did get to read it first…but at last I’m now able to share my review with you!

Title: Heart Recaptured

Series: Hades Hangmen #2

Author: Tillie Cole

Age group: Mature new adult

Genre: MC dark contemporary romance

Release date: 14th December 2014

Synopsis

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00049]Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve,’ Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a ‘protection’ she strongly resents.

Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch… a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore… Delilah increas-ingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the ‘outside’ may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.

Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.

When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go…

Review

At the end of the first book in the Hades Hangmen series, It Ain’t Me, Babe, Styx and the other Hangmen stormed the Order to rescue Mae and her sisters. We re-join them at that moment seeing it from Lilah’s perspective; how she didn’t want to leave the only place she’s ever known. A month passes and Mae’s sisters, Lilah and Maddie are still hiding in the apartment upstairs, never stepping downstairs. Lilah seems to struggle a lot more than Mae did with the outside world – letting go of her old life. She firmly believes she is cursed and descended from the Devil – something which is so heart-breaking to read.

From the moment he saw her Ky’s thoughts have only been of Lilah, the blonde haired beauty and religious nut with the most stunning figure and lips he’d like to get better acquainted with. His crude language and no shame behaviour scare her off and he’s promptly ordered by Styx to stay away. But when the need arises Ky is forced to become Lilah’s keeper, introducing her to the outside world and trying to bring her out of her shell, something which proves difficult as the Order’s impression is still firmly influencing Lilah’s thoughts.

As Ky spends more and more time with Lil his feelings start to become more than just carnal and Lilah learns that there’s much more to him than just his crude behaviour. But Lilah’s attitude still remains firmly with the Order’s lies and each day she suffers with the way she looks and her perception of the way men treat her.

As Ky and Lilah become closer, The Order meanwhile are assembling, travelling from all around the world for one person – Prophet Cain aka Rider. And whilst he settles into his new role and rallies his new people in some truly disturbing ways, the Hangmen remain in the dark.

But when the truth comes out where will Lilah’s loyalty lie? With the people who she’s known her whole life, those who abused her, belittled her and told her she was pure evil, something which she still believes? Or will it lie with her new family, those that have taught her to be herself and tell her she is of no less worth than any other man or women in the compound, but they’re unknown to her, their actions seemingly unholy and barbaric? Will she stay with her sisters and the men she’s been avoiding for months now or will she return to the people she has grown up trusting despite their endless torture?

Much like so many of us I’ve been anticipating the arrival of this book for so long now and when my ARC arrived on my Kindle I did let out a little squeal! Ok it wasn’t a little one it was a full blown scream – it was an exciting moment okay?! This book is quite different to the first as Mae wanted to escape her life, she left willingly and was more open to forgetting the Order’s lies and embracing her new life with the Hangmen but Lilah is taken against her will and still firmly believes everything they told her which makes for a very different read.

I’m not going to lie some of the content about what the Order do to Lilah is truly horrific and if extreme violence and abuse isn’t something you like to read then I’d tread carefully when reading Heart Recaptured. Having said that I’m so glad that Tillie did put it in, not only is it exquisitely written, bringing the story to a whole knew level but knowing that everything is based on true tales Tillie was told whilst at university made the whole story so much more poignant. I loved Lilah and her pain felt so real I did shed the odd tear, especially at the end – oh god THE END, I’m pretty sure my heart broke. And Ky? Sometimes he really was a bit of a loveable idiot but gosh love him you will. And then there’s the rest of the Hangmen…..can I have all of them?

This series has to be one of my all time favourites – its definitely got it all, romance, drama, angst, buckets of emotion…You will live their lives with them, their pain, happiness and heartbreak will become your own and once you start you’ll never be able to stop until you’ve reached the last page. If you thought Styx and Mae’s story was something special you haven’t seen anything yet…

A story that’s both heart-breaking and panty-melting this is definitely one unmissable, 5 star read – if you don’t one-click this RIGHT NOW then there’s obviously something wrong with you.

And if that didn’t convince, then here’s a cheeky excerpt….

Excerpt

Ky stalked toward me, his white shirt tight over his taut torso, his blue denim pants loose on his legs. As he approached, he ran his hand through his messy long hair, chewing slowly on a small, thin wooden stick gripped between his teeth.

I could not speak, could not think, could not breathe. My free hand reached behind me, resting on a shelf to keep me upright. The smoky smell of Ky washed over me. My heart was frantic and my blood rushed through my veins.

Ky’s nostrils flared as he approached, his blue gaze drinking in the sight of my modestly covered frame. He did not stop three steps in front of me as the brothers were required to do in the commune. He did not keep an appropriate distance, as a man should with a woman in public. Oh no, instead, he closed in until his impressive height towered over my head, his chest pressing flush against my breasts.

I could feel his intense gaze. I squeezed my eyes shut, too afraid to face this devilish man. I lost all composure when he was near. He was crude, grossly promiscuous, and although my mind warned me of his evil and seductive nature, my heart betrayed my virtue and strived to have him close. His beautiful face and body tempted me to take him into my body. He was my very own forbidden fruit, one of which I had to keep far far away.

 More about Tillie

Amazon & USA Today Best Selling Author, Tillie Cole, is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother — a farmer’s daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.

Tillie Cole Author Pic

Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the ‘Toon’, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and gradu-ated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards New-castle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven ‘proper mint’ and ‘lush’ years.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, “D’you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book.” Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and “just bloody do it!” For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagina-tion.

Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glit-tery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed – they’re her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that en-able her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing — yep, there’s more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl… Ye-haw!

This Week’s Hot Reads

So Today I’ve decided to share what I’ve read throughout my week and my mini review of it. Enjoy!!

1. Opposition (A Lux Novel ) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This is the last book in the Lux Series 😦 In the final epic battle between Luxen, Arum and Mankind, we finally get to know whether Katy and Daemon will have their happy ending – will they ever be free of Daedalus or the Luxen? And after the major cliffhanger at the end of the previous book where Katy is left with 2 Origins and a pregnant, slightly crazy, Hybrid after her Luxen family are pulled away by their invading kind – I was dying to know what happens. And I wasn’t disappointed – I mean how could you when Daemon Black is concerned?! One of my all time favourite series and a finale well worth the wait – 5 Stars ∗

2. Precarious (Jokers Wrath MC #1) by Bella Jewel

As a die-hard Bella Jewel fan I couldn’t wait to read this! At first set in a prison, Ash is working as a prison guard and is one of the best. When she hears a biker is coming in for shooting a family she’s intrigued to see what he’s like as she hasn’t really encountered one before. At first he won’t talk but she senses that there’s more to Krypt than meets the eye. But after being caught in the crossfire of his daring escape, Ash is taken by Krypt to his MC and hidden away. He’s a criminal, albeit a very hot one, and a murderer too, but he’s the only thing keeping her alive – the question is, will she be able to resist temptation when it’s just the two of them locked away in the mountains? I’m a big fan of MC books and this one didn’t disappoint me, it was gritty and HOT – and the storyline was awesome. Yet another 5 stars

3. Breathe With Me (With Me In Seattle #7) by Kristen Proby

The With Me In Seattle series has been going on for a while now, usually after 7 books I’d start to get a bit fed up but with each book focusing on a different couple as well as the gorgeous Williams and Montgomery men this series has had me coming back for more. In book 7, it’s Mark Williams’ turn after he’s reunited with his childhood sweetheart Meredith Summers. We know from previous books that Mark is a bit of a player, but we never really understood why. It turns out that whilst in high school he gave his heart away to Meredith, a hopeful dancer, but when it’s time for her to go off to dance school she ends things to focus on her career. After a painful event brings them together, can they forgive and forget and start a new life together? I love the characters in this series – they’re funny, relatable and so damn hot! I loved the book, but as it’s not my favourite story in the stories it has to be 4 stars

4. Sweet Fall (Sweet Home Series #3) by Tillie Cole     (ARC for Book Blog Tour)

This book I can’t talk too much about as I was given a review copy for my special review post next week as part of the official release book blog tour! This is Lexi and Austin’s story – we know from the previous books that Lexi is the gothic cheerleader and Cass’s best friend, and Austin is the tattooed bad boy of the Crimson Tide. Both of them have secrets – secrets that could kill them both. Lexi’s story is heart-breaking and I felt honoured to be reading something so personal to author Tillie Cole, who I think is nothing short of AMAZING by the way! With their problems trying to tear both of them apart and destroy their lives, can they finally find peace and save one another? This book is just something else, I think my heart broke at least a dozen times and I definitely cried a few times too! If I could fall in love with a book, this would definitely be the one!! I can’t wait for you all to read it when it’s released next week and stay tuned for my special review on Friday 29th. 5+ stars it’s so bloody good I had to add the + on – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 

5. Loving Cara (Love Under The Big Sky #1) by Kristen Proby

As you can see from my reading list this week, my love for Kristen Proby had me coming back for more! Loving Cara is the story of small town teacher Cara and ranch hand Josh. Josh’s twin brother Zach is away with the army when his soon-to-be-ex-wife comes to the ranch to dump their teenage son Seth who she no longer wants. Seth is difficult and moody so Cara is hired to tutor him over the summer. Having gone to school together Cara and Josh waste no time getting to know one another again. After a series of events Cara and Josh find themselves stuck together and growing closer by the day, but is it really going to be that easy? A really sweet enjoyable read, perfect for the summer holidays but not particularly fast paced nor heart racing so 4 ½ stars +

So those were the books on my kindle this week – all of them are great reads and I’d definitely recommend you go and check them out! Stay tuned for the end of the week where I’ll tell you what I’ve been reading this week!
