Some Sort of Love by Melanie Harlow

  Check out the today’s hot new release!

Blurb

On the surface, I have it all—a career I adore, a loving family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supports my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie…but I have no one to share it with.Until the day I run into him—my one night stand from college with the cocky smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.

Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big…heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard… um. Sorry. Lost my place.)

But he lives for his son, and he’s keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better—a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough.

But he’s wrong.

He’s everything.

 

 

Review

Oh my goodness the feels! I have so much love for this book!!  When Jillian attends her sister’s wedding she knew it would require a couple of drinks. With every family member there asking her when she’s going to find Mr Right, there was no way she could have survived without one. The last thing she expected was to bump into Levi Brooks. The last time she saw him they were locked in a closet doing a bit more than just talking.

She’s spent years thinking about him and now he’s back in her life she isn’t going to let him go without re-living the amazing night they spent together all those years ago. Soon their feelings become so much more than lust but Levi is still holding himself back. Being a single father he’s used to it just being him and his son. With some wounds that have never healed, he can’t seem to move forward with Jillian no matter how much he loves her. But there’s only so long Jillian can put up with his excuses, will he be able to move on and let her in?

I loved every single second of this book! I really loved Jillian and Levi and their romance, drama and all the emotions they made me feel! This book is a standalone but you do get a glimpse of characters from the previous books so I would definitely recommend reading all of this brilliant series!

Excerpt

“So.” I glanced out the windows to the patio. “You want to go back out there?”“Not really,” she said.

“You want to get out of here?”

She grinned. “Yeah. I do.”

I watched her rush up the stairs to get her things, and as soon as she was out of sight, I adjusted myself in my pants. My dick had jumped to life the second she said yeah, I do, as if the question had been you want to get naked and fuck? rather than something much less suggestive. Not that I didn’t want to get naked and fuck—hopefully I’d last a little longer than I had in the broom closet eleven years ago—but I didn’t want to make her feel like that’s what I expected. She wasn’t a horny nineteen-year-old college student anymore; she was a doctor, for fuck’s sake. She was beautiful and smart and mature and sophisticated, and a woman like her did not want some Neanderthal who probably needed a haircut and a new pair of shoes to throw her up against a wall for a five-minute fuck.

A woman like that deserved attention all night long. She deserved someone who would undress her slowly and delight in each new inch of her skin as it was revealed. Someone who would run his hands all over her body and find out where she liked to be touched, how she liked to be touched, what she wanted to hear whispered to her in the dark. Someone who would wrap those gloriously long legs around his neck and use his tongue until she begged for his cock, then use his cock until she begged for mercy.

Fuck. I could be that guy.

Except I couldn’t be. Not tonight. Because I wasn’t a horny college student anymore either—I was just a horny single dad who didn’t have the luxury of taking a woman home and lavishing all my time and attention on her the way I wanted to.

As soon as I had the thought, I felt guilty. Scotty was the love of my life and always would be, and whenever I felt the slightest bit resentful about something I couldn’t do because of him, that resentment was immediately crushed by shame. He didn’t ask to be born wired differently, into a terrible relationship, to a mother who would decide she couldn’t handle being a parent, to a father who wasn’t prepared for any of it. He was completely innocent, and he needed me to be a better man.

Running a hand through my hair, I exhaled and wondered if I should ask Jillian for a raincheck on a night when Scotty’s usual sitter could be there. If he woke up again and I wasn’t home yet, he might never get back to sleep. We’d be up all night, tomorrow would be miserable, and the whole start to the week would be off.

But she was so beautiful. And I hadn’t been this attracted to someone in so long.

“Fuck,” I muttered, checking my watch. What was the right thing to do? If she were a different sort of woman, if her brother-in-law weren’t my friend and client, if we lived three states apart…if any number of circumstances were changed, I’d grab her hand, drag her out to my car, and spend the next thirty minutes fucking her brains out in the back seat. It would feel so good to take control that way, to lose control that way, to release some of this fucking tension. But was that fair to her?

My phone buzzed in my pocket.

“Hello?”

“He’s up again.” Monica’s voice was strained, and in the background I heard the familiar keening of a nighttime meltdown. My chest hurt, the way it always did when Scotty was upset.

“Shit. OK, I’m on my way. Twenty minutes, OK? Thirty at the most.”

“OK.”

“Tell him he can play on his iPad.”

“That’ll just rile him up more. He’s tired. He needs to go to sleep.”

I clenched my fist. “Just do it, OK? It will help calm him until I get there.”

As I ended the call, I heard footsteps above, and then Jillian appeared at the top of the stairs carrying a small suitcase. I watched her descend, the tightness in my chest growing. Also the tightness in my pants. “Hey.”

“Hey,” she said, her face concerned as she reached the ground and saw my expression. She set down the suitcase. “What’s up?”

Sighing, I put my phone back in my pocket. “I have to get home. Scotty woke up and he’s upset.”

“Oh.” She tried to hide it, but I saw the disappointment in her eyes.

“I’m really sorry. I’ll make it up to you, I promise.”

“That’s OK. I understand.”

“Can I call you?”

“Of course.” She smiled, and her lips looked so soft and inviting, I took a step closer.

If you kiss her, it will be that much harder to leave.

I knew it was the truth, but I couldn’t help myself. One kiss. Just one. And then I’ll go. I moved even closer and took her head in my hands.

The curve of her smile deepened. “What are you doing?”

“I’m thinking about kissing you.”

“Stop thinking.”

I lowered my lips to hers and let them rest there, fully intending the kiss to be short and sweet, just a goodnight.

But I couldn’t break it off. I wanted more—I wanted to taste her. Slanting my head, I changed the angle of the kiss, teasing her mouth open with mine, slipping my tongue between her lips. A little sigh escaped her, and my dick jumped to life again.

You have to go, you have to go, you have to go.

But her hands were moving up my chest and my fingers were sliding into her soft brown hair and I could smell something sweet and citrusy on her skin and it mingled with the taste of whiskey on my tongue and oh God, I wanted my tongue everywhere on her body. I wanted make her come with it just so I could hear that little sigh again and again and again. And I wanted to feel my hands in her hair just like this while she got on her knees and took my cock between her lips, looking up at me with those big blue eyes…

Groaning, I forced myself to take my lips off her before I completely lost my senses. “God, I wish I could stay,” I said, resting my forehead against hers. “I wish a lot of things.”

“I know.” She played with my tie again. “I wish I was taking this tie off you, not straightening it.”

“What a coincidence, that’s one of my wishes too.”

She laughed and kissed me quickly. “Another time, maybe. You better go.”

Now years later that moment still haunts her and though she can’t take back what happened she can try to do something good from it.

Recipe For:A Roll In The Hay Hot Crossed Buns Love

Ingredients:

1 Chef (equal parts sexy and carefree)

1 Pianist (equal parts uptight and endearing)
1/8 inch of drywall between their apartments
2 opinions on everything

Combine all ingredients, mix vigorously, and be prepared for an explosion of heat.

Pianist Ella Thomas is training for the competition of her life. Finally in an apartment of her own, she can practice from dawn till dusk.

But she didn’t bet on the sexy and frustrating neighbor keeping her up all night – even if he does cook like a maestro and kiss like it’s his job.

Jake Matson is living his dream as Head Chef at one of the most popular restaurants in San Francisco. He’s easy going, flirtatious and not looking for love. He didn’t expect to be completely distracted by the girl next door, whose buttoned-up appearance hides the seductive firecracker underneath.

What happens when opposites attract? As their tension fires up, can they create a new kind of music together or will everything boil over?

Review

I received a free copy for an honest review.

Ella has lived and breathed classical music her whole life. With a family who don’t believe in her classical career and an ex boyfriend telling her she isn’t good enough to succeed, she’s determined to prove them wrong. How? By winning the most prestigious competition for classical pianists. Moving into a place of her own she had thought she could spend her days and nights focussing purely on her music, even if it meant she lived off canned soup for the next few weeks.

What she didn’t count on was her neighbour coming home in the early hours of the morning every night and demanding she not play her piano in the mornings so he can sleep. What starts out as a battle of wills soon becomes something a whole lot more. Her teacher keeps telling her not be distracted, to focus solely on her music, but what if Jake is just the distraction she needs?

I loved every moment of this book! It was had drama, romance, heat and some pretty funny moments too. Jake can bake me chocolate brownies any day 😉 Definitely not one to be missed!!

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!

Thrust (Fastlane #2) by Sloan Storm

 It’s finally here! Thrust is book 2 in the Fastlane Series by Sloan Storm and is completely UNMISSABLE! Check it out NOW!

 

Blurb
From the instant I met mysterious, hard-bodied Formula One driver Marco Rhys, he took charge – leading me on a red-lined, wild ride into his world.

But I’d vowed to never give a man control of my life. Ever. It was my unbreakable rule, a principle I promised to never compromise – no matter what.

So despite his rock hard abs, devilish good looks and charm to match, I felt sure I’d rise to the challenge. After all, I’d handled my fair share of billionaire playboys in my short career and never failed to deliver. I had too much at stake, and too much to lose if I failed.

If I couldn’t sign Marco to the investment firm I worked for, I could wave my dreams goodbye. Everyone who said I would never amount to anything would be right.

But I didn’t count on the unstoppable force of Marco Rhys.

Everything depended on our battle of wills. One of us would have to conquer the other in the boardroom or the bedroom.

Which one of us would surrender first?

Why did I feel like it might be me?

 

Review

I received a free copy for an honest review

After loving the first book in the Fastlane series, Surge, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Thrust! Especially after the small taste we got of Marco from Surge.

Dani is a successful investment banker but in a world dominated by men, she’s still trying to make her mark. When she’s given the opportunity to make partner she jumps at the chance. Now there is only one thing standing in her way….or rather someone. Marco Rhys is a man who knows exactly what he wants and from the moment he meets Dani there is nothing he wants more.

All she wants is his signature, but he wants a lot more than that. Together their chemistry will start fires, but will they both come out unscathed?

I absolutely LOVED every second of this book! The twists and turns kept me on edge the whole time and Dani & Marco’s relationship was HOT AS HELL! Yet another unmissable book by Ms Storm! I seriously can not wait until book 3!

REVIEW

Kendall has been in her own personal hell for a long time now. A tragic accident ripped her world apart and now having had time to grieve, she wants to get back to work and move on. The first step to doing this? Spend the night with renown playboy Dr Anson Allaway.

When she arrives at the club it doesn’t take long to get him to agree. They both expected a great night together and then everything to go back to normal at work. But they didn’t expect that night to change everything.

She’s scared of her past, her future and to move on – for so long she’s been going through the motions but not truly living. Will Anson be the man to love her back to life?

I absolutely adored this book! Such a beautiful storyline mixed in with brilliant characters and some HOT HOT HOT scenes! I want my own Dr Allaway 😉 …pretty please?


 

Excerpt

 

“Hey,” Kendall said, pulling at Dr. Allaway before letting go of his hand. He turned to face her. “Just to reassure you: I’m not looking for a way into your heart.”

Relieved to hear this, and somewhat embarrassed he was so easy to read, Dr. Allaway relaxed and confessed, “Matthews, or Kendall rather, it’s… it’s not that getting to know you outside of work would be bad. In fact, we’d probably get along great. It’s just that… I just don’t want you to be expecting that. The last thing I want to do is cause any further hurt for you. You know what I mean?”

“Doctor… uh, Anson? Double A? See?! I don’t even know what the hell to call you!”

Kendall said, laughing through her embarrassment, lightening the entire mood on the doorstep.

“Anson,” he clarified with a smile that reached his eyes. “I’ve heard about the Double A nickname.”

“Anson it is then,” she stated matter-of-factly. “The problem is my late husband. I know! He’s everywhere I go right now! And yes, I’m grieving. But tonight – if not just for tonight – I’ve left it all behind. I. Just. Want. To have. Some fucking. Sex.” She drew in a breath and apologetically cringed. “And, no offense, but I figured you’d be a safe bet and probably a wiser choice than someone random. At this point, I was willing to see what Bryan could do for me, but turns out he’s in a committed relationship.” Kendall rolled her eyes in jest, Bryan being a flamboyantly gay respiratory therapist.

Anson’s smile broadened again. “No offense taken. And just for the record, I’m not usually this predictable, but I hear what you’re saying. And honestly…” He paused, his expression softening. “I’m so sorry for your loss and I apologize for not saying that earlier.” A doleful look spread across his face as he reflected on his behavior. “I guess I am more of an ass than I’d like to admit. But with regard to tonight, rest assured, I do get tested regularly. Which begs the question: Are you on the pill?”

“I’ve got condoms. A nurse always comes prepared,” she said with a wink. “And you’re not an ass, just a player. No need to apologize.”

“I’m not a player,” Anson contested.

“You just fuck a lot?”

He laughed, impressed with her wit, raising his eyebrows suggestively as a wolfish grin returned to his face.

Surprised she would just address the elephant in the room like that, Anson respected

Kendall’s approach. Strangely, he imagined what Dan would look like: a respectable firefighter, surely a good guy who must have played a role in shaping his wife to be so secure and confident in her ways. And now, seeing this whole other side of Kendall, he oddly admired Dan as well.

Anson could tell they must have had one of those rare marriages exemplifying love. She was definitely not on a mission to replace him tonight.

No one would compare.

Reeling his thoughts back in once again, Anson snapped his fingers and pointed at

Kendall. “Okay, great. Now that we’ve gotten all that out in the open.” He turned back to the door to unlock it.

“So, do you have kids?” he asked. “Nevermind. Ignore that. I don’t know why the hell I just asked that. We’re clearly spending way too much time talking out here.”

“Nope, no kids. And I agree, less talk.”

Before he had a chance to fully turn the key in the keyhole, Kendall grabbed his hand, bringing it to her lower back, and pulled his head down toward hers, taking control once again. And Anson was right there with her. He pressed his hips close against hers, rapaciously sucking her waiting lips, the abandoned keys dangling from the lock.

They both inhaled sharply as he repositioned her up against the solid wood door, driving his tongue deep into her mouth, then softly gliding it along the edge of her top lip. With his hands firmly grasping the inside of her back pockets, squeezing and grabbing her, Anson rocked his pelvis into hers, effectively pinning her to the wood.

At first, his drive was purely primal in nature – his goal, like always, to check out mentally and fulfill that selfish gratification often accompanying meaningless sex. But the more deeply he kissed her, inhaling the pheromones radiating from her pores mixing with the sultry air, the more his focus shifted to Kendall.

And Kendall noticed.

The intensity of their exchange was far more exhilarating than she’d anticipated. Considering she’d been kissing only one man for the last decade, she’d expected an awkward vibe to override this new sexually charged contact.

But with Anson? It felt familiar, safe, and right, so very right – yet wildly exotic and intoxicating all in the same breath. The alluring dichotomy seduced her, exceeding even the expectations of her active imagination.

Anson tugged gently at her hair before letting his hand glide along her neck and over her covered breast, where he paused to fondle her. Carefully, he lifted the hem of her loosely designed chiffon top, still feeding off her fiery kisses, and slid his hand on to her bare skin, up her back, and to her bra clasp. Her skin submissively hummed under his commanding touch. From her panting mouth, he moved to taste her earlobe and the salty skin of her sleek neckline.

With one snap of his fingers, he undid the clasp, freeing her. His left hand danced lightly along the side of her ribcage to her breast, eliciting an airy giggle from Kendall. He returned to her mouth, relishing in her response, and sealed his grin against hers. His fingertips salaciously outlined the supple bottom curve of her breast, teasing her in hope of that same delightful response, then seductively caressing and squeezing her entire breast.

Powerless against his skilled hand, Kendall moaned into his mouth, arching her back, pressing her breast into his palm, and hardening him with excitement. He massaged her nipple between his thumb and forefinger while sucking at her bottom lip, leaving her breathless. Their tongues met again, the cool saliva coating her swollen lips – lips that burned lasciviously from the rough friction of his stubbly facial hair.

Just as he began to lift her blouse, exposing her breasts to the humid South Florida night, Kendall pushed his chest away, taking Anson aback. He searched her eyes for assurance, respectfully bringing both hands to rest on her hips. A cooling sensation rushed down both of them as he created a gap between his bulging jeans and her pelvis.

“Everything okay?” Concerned, he instinctively stroked her hip bones with his thumbs in a soothing manner.

Noticing the wistful look in his eyes, Kendall smiled reassuringly, enunciating her somewhat erratic breathing with the softest giggle.

“More than okay,” she exhaled. “I just thought we might want to pause for a second, so we can remember how to unlock a door and enter a house. Otherwise, I see us unzipping and finding a place amongst your sea grapes.”

Anson laughed. “Nah, no need to roll around in the dirt. I’ll just hold you up against the door. Then, if you can handle more, I’ll take you inside for round two.”

“Aren’t you the confident one? Last I checked, I had some pretty outstanding skills myself. And I’m guaranteeing you’ll be plain worn out when I’m through with you. Don’t get too attached. I’ll be gone before you know what hit you.” With that, Kendall turned, twisted the forgotten key in the lock and pushed down on the handle of the door.

As he held open the door, she looked back at him suggestively and playfully bit her bottom lip. Without warning, Kendall lecherously cupped his confined erection, then skipped over the threshold into his home.

Her playful teasing in this arena was so unexpected, so alluring, so fucking cute. Anson was far from the besotted type. Yet here he was, rapt. Kendall was someone he knew for her keen nursing intelligence and professional skills within the hospital walls. And now she was captivating him with a whole new area of expertise, one with which he was far more interested in becoming familiar. He shook his head in amusement and followed her inside.

About the Author

 

Elle G. Mraz has several not-so-secret love affairs: peanut butter M&Ms, sweet champagne, and writing run-on sentences. She merged all three one day in 2014, continuing off and on until completing her first romance novel, Love Me Back to Life.

Elle met her Canadian husband in Guatemala and got hitched in Las Vegas. Together they laugh, dream big, and ponder life’s great mysteries (“When did our junk drawer become a junk room?”) while raising their two children, a couple odd rescue cats, and two even-odder rescue greyhounds. While she’s done her fair share of traveling and has lived abroad, Elle was raised along the briny Atlantic coast of South Florida, which she’ll always call home.

Writing spicy dramas for others to enjoy is a welcome distraction from Elle’s on-the-job drama as a full-time registered nurse. When she’s not working, spending time with her kids, or paying a bit of attention to her main man, she tries to squeeze in some writing and reading time – preferably on the beach with a mimosa.

A portion of her book’s proceeds will go directly to the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization. To learn more about this wonderful nonprofit that supports families who have children with Down syndrome in Palm Beach County, Florida, please visit: www.goldcoastdownsyndrome.org

Slipperless (Book 3) by Sloan Storm

The wait is over book 3 is here! Gabe and Fiona’s story just gets better and better! Can NOT wait to read the rest of their story!

Blurb

Dominated. Humiliated… And desperate for more.

But satisfying him comes at a price.

As the time draws closer for me to do the presentation, I’m finding I may not have the ability to pay the cost. Debilitating physical ailments threaten to derail my progress and put an end to my chance to get ahead.

Determined to keep me on track and focused, Gabe takes me away for personal supervision and instruction in a tropical paradise. But, what happens when we get there may mean losing him, and my career…

Forever.

This is the third book in a Billionaire Romance series presented in serial format. It is not a standalone. All individual entries are currently free with Kindle Unlimited.

 

 

Review

This series just keeps on getting better but this book has to be the best so far! After a smoking hot cliffhanger at the end of book 2 I couldn’t wait to read what happened next…

After a dressing down (quite literally) in Gabe’s office, Fiona knows she can neither stay away from Gabe nor ignore his demands any longer. Gabe says she needs to do this presentation and learn how to manage her team and if she doesn’t then she’s out of a job.

Excerpt

 

Fiona 

Just as he finished speaking, Gabe leaned in and kissed me, sliding his hand behind my head as he did. Although I probably should have expected it and resisted, the simple fact was he’d caught me by surprise and I didn’t.

It was such a beautiful place and the truth was that I was tired. In reality, nothing would have felt better than the satin-like feel of his lips against mine just then. I relented and leaned into Gabe, giving in to his strength and my need for it. Without a word, he separated his lips from mine.

“Give me your hand,” he said.

Still in a daze from our kiss, I did as he asked. “Why?”

“Well, Fiona, we have to shower,” he began, as he tugged at me, pulling me off the stool. “You can’t get in the ocean dirty. That just wouldn’t be polite.”

“Oh, I see.”

Within minutes, Gabe stripped away what resistance I pretended to still have, and, after starting the shower, he reached down and grabbed hold of the door handle, tugging it open. Trailing Gabe’s chiseled backside into the heated mist, I watched as he walked under one of two large showerheads.

I closed on him just as the rain from overhead slid down his magnificent torso. Rivulets of wet heat rippled along his hard frame as I drew near, rubbing my body against his like a forlorn kitten.

I looked up into Gabe’s eyes, and as I did he leaned down and kissed me with a single, soft press against my cheek. Chills raced along my spine as he moved closer and trailed his slick lips down the side of my neck.

I trembled as Gabe’s tongue and lips suckled my wet flesh. Just then, he reached up and pulled my hair out of his way. With a tender slap, it clung to my back as Gabe’s mouth moved around behind me to the center of my neck, just above my shoulder blades.

My head listed and rocked like a wayward sea vessel in the midst of a storm. As the shower rained heat upon me, I leaned my curves against him. Gabe’s hands raced towards my hips, where he grabbed them and squeezed firmly. My lips parted, and as they did, a few droplets made their way inside. I tasted the water, laced with Gabe’s essence. A heady mix of musk and sweat rolled across my tongue like a subtle wave laps against a dock.

I may have won the competition, but I’m far from winning with Gabe. His demands are pushing me to the limit, and I’m beginning to wonder if I can handle them much longer.

But my grandmother’s condition is worsening, and keeping this job has become critical. I may have no choice but to submit to Gabe’s schedule…and his appetite.

Worse yet, now that I’ve confirmed the rumors of his prowess, I find myself less interested in keeping things professional and more focused on satisfying the needs he’s awakened within me.

Can I resist my charming bastard of a boss? And more importantly, will he let me?

Review

This series just keeps on getting better! When Fiona landed her dream job she wasn’t expecting the demanding boss nor the jealous co-workers. Try as she may her resistance to Gabe is slowly crumbling and his persistence is wearing her down.

With her Grandma ill and money tight she needs this job and the promotion more than ever, meaning resisting Gabe is now essential. Struggling to find her feet at the office, she now faces leading a group of people who doubt her and the sly jealous female colleagues who are trying to undermine her every move.

Backstabbing and drama ensues and to overcome it, Fiona must learn to stand on her own two feet and defend herself. What’s more Gabe’s demands are getting more frequent and a lot harder to ignore.

Gabe isn’t used to hearing the word no and will always get what he wants – through any means. Even if that means he needs to remind Fiona whose boss….

Full of drama and spice Slipperless #2 is a great continuation of the series and man is the ending HOT – you may need a fan and some new underwear for this one ladies! This book is all about Fiona’s progression and her blossoming relationship with Gabe, I for one can’t wait to see what happens next! Can NOT wait for book #3!

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!

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb

Anniversaries are usually occasions worth celebrating, but when your fourth wedding anniversary is also the first anniversary of your husband’s death, you’ll only want to drink your sorrows away. And that’s exactly what Phoenix Nightingale does.

In the small town of Breckshire Wyoming, everybody knows everybody, so when Evan Tyler walks into the same bar she’s drowning her grief in, Phoenix knows that he’s new in town. What she doesn’t know is that he’s just moved in a few houses down from her and is about to try his hardest to break through the wall she’s had up for a year. 

Phoenix has experienced a tragedy that nobody ever wants to experience. In the year following her husband’s death, she’s had what her parent’s considered embarrassing public meltdowns, and lost some friends along with her career. Just as she feels she’s at her very lowest, Evan barges into her life, forcing her to get out of the house and look at life a little differently. 

 

He vows to help her, encouraging her to rise from the ashes and live once again. Evan doesn’t know that just by being in her life, he’s bound to send her into a tailspin, because both of them are keeping things from each other, and Phoenix may not be strong enough to handle what she finds out. 

 

Will she pull him into the dark with her, or will he be able to resurrect Phoenix, freeing her from the depths of her depression, and showing her that surviving isn’t the same as living

Excerpt

“Let me take your picture. There should definitely be documentation of this.” 

 

      “Of what?” 

 

      “You, looking like you do.” 

 

      He uses his finger to touch the camera photo in the corner of the screen and pushes up to open the app. Turning the phone horizontally, he starts taking photos. 

 

      “How do I look?” I ask, feeling self-conscious.

 

      “Carefree, happy, and beyond beautiful. You’re really a vision, Phoenix.” 

 

      My smile appears, the one that seems to always be present when I’m with Evan. I tuck a piece of hair behind my ear as I look up and into Evan’s eyes. He snaps a few more photos. 

 

      “Okay, come take one with me now,” I say, not wanting to be the sole focus of all the photos. 

 

      He comes to me at once and stands behind me, stretching his arm out in front of us and takes a few pictures. His free hand is on my hip, finding a place between the material of my shirt and the top of my jeans. I begin to laugh as the soft touch of his hand on my skin tickles, and then I feel his lips on my cheek.
