Claiming Grace (Ace Security # 1)

By Susan Stoker

Synopsis

For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it’s not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years.

Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family’s controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved.

Now, united by scars both visible and not, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family. But the Masons won’t let go easily—and they’ll do whatever it takes to keep the couple apart.

Review

CLAIMING GRACE is the first book in the Ace Security series and is also the first book I’ve read from Susan Stoker.  It is a second-chance romance between Logan and Grace, who had feelings for each other in high school, but never acted on them before Logan left for the Army.  Thanks to the actions of others, they both believed the other had led them on and therefore haven’t seen or spoken to each other in ten years.

Ace Security is owned and run by triplet brothers Logan, Blake and Nathan, who created the security firm after their father was killed by their abusive mother, and their primary goal is to provide help and security for abused men.  At the time of writing this review, I read this story over a week ago and I don’t remember much about Logan at all, other than I thought his idea of creating a security company for abused men was brilliant.

Grace stood out more than Logan, but in her case that’s not a good thing.  She’s a nice woman and I was rooting for her to get her HEA with Logan, but I couldn’t relate to her.  I couldn’t understand why she didn’t just tell people what had been going on and then get in her car and go far, far away from her parents.  She’s been mentally and emotionally abused her entire life and yet, at the age of thirty, is still clinging to the hope that some day soon her parents will love her and let her go to live her own life.  As much as I hate to say this, sometimes she was a little too stupid to live.  She would acknowledge that she needed to be careful around her parents, but would then meet them alone in private places.

I have to say that as much as I hated them, her parents are the most memorable characters in this story.  They are so horrible, despicable and cruel that they deserve to be skinned alive for not only how they treated Grace, but how they treated everyone in the community.

CLAIMING GRACE is told in dual POVs and comes with a HEA that I will say was a little cheesy and unrealistic.  The ending also leads us into the second book which will be about Blake and Alexis.

Worth The Wait (St. James # 1)

By Jamie Beck

Synopsis

Thirteen years ago, Vivi LeBrun was sketching a rooster and eating Oreos when she first met—and fell for—her friend’s brother, David St. James. Since then, her love for David has only intensified thanks to years of friendship with his family, who rescued her from a lonely, tumultuous childhood. As she travels to Block Island to vacation with the St. James siblings, Vivi daydreams about reuniting with David, hoping he’ll finally see her as his soul mate.

After his mother’s death, David distanced himself from his siblings, determined to hide a devastating family secret. Now, he’s brought a new girlfriend along to his homecoming—one who’s pushing for a serious commitment. The last thing he needs on his growing list of problems is his budding attraction to Vivi.

With tensions running high, David’s behavior triggers a series of events that might cost him the love he’s always taken for granted and Vivi the only real family she’s ever known.

Review

WORTH THE WAIT is the first book I’ve read from Jamie Beck, and I found it to be an enjoyable read.

I quite liked Vivi, who is fun, friendly and just a really nice person.  She lost her mother and brother when she was just a child and her father became a drunk to escape.  But despite all that, she remains positive and upbeat.  She has been in love with David since she was thirteen and even at that young age, she never hid her feelings from him.  That takes courage and I admired her for it.  But after waiting in vain for half of her life, she decides it’s time to move on from David and, as is her way, she’s not afraid to tell him exactly what she thinks and feels.

“Vivi, your friendship means everything to me.  I don’t want to lose it.”
“Of course you don’t.  Who would willingly let go of someone who gives everything and asks for nothing in return?”

David is a nice guy, but he’s also a little selfish and I spent a large portion of the story not liking him very much.  He’s dealing with his own personal demons which have caused him to recently push away not only his family, but also Vivi.  He’s always been aware of Vivi’s feelings for him but in all honesty, he never led her on…at least up until now.  His character is a cliché though, in that he didn’t realise exactly how he wanted Vivi until her affection wasn’t available to him anymore.

She’d always been an all-or-nothing girl.  He should have guessed she would treat him likewise.  For years she’d given him her all, and now she had nothing left.

WORTH THE WAIT is told in dual POVs and comes with a very nice HEA.  The story is told in present time but also includes the occasional flashback to events that took place over the past thirteen years.  I found this to be an easy and enjoyable read, and I would read the next book in the series.

St. James Series

Kiss Cam

By Anie Michaels

Synopsis

Life was smooth sailing for Riley Smith. She’d earned a promotion, was living the dream as a singlegal in a big city, and treated herself to one of her favorite things – a professional basketball game. In Riley’s opinion, nothing ruined a good basketball game like the halftime gag, the Kiss Cam. When the camera lands on her and the sexy stranger in the next seat over, peer pressure from the arena forces them to kiss. It was supposed to be quick, meaningless, and comical. Instead the kiss was hot, delectable, and left her reeling.

It hadn’t been a great night for Camden Rogers, son of Portland’s mayor. On a date with a woman he didn’t care for out of obligation to his politician father, meeting the sassy and intelligent Riley was the last thing he expected. Kissing her, however, was the hottest thing he’d ever experienced. Never one to back down from a challenge, convincing his hesitant kissing partner they could be more would be his biggest accomplishment yet.

They came from two different worlds, a divide Riley was sure they couldn’t overcome, but Camden was convinced she was the one. Will Riley be able to let her guard down and let Camden in? Or will the Kiss Cam be their only sexy encounter?

Author’s Note: Kiss Cam was originally published in June of 2016 as a 19,000-word novella in the Passion in Portland anthology. I have added 55,000 new words and expanded the story into a full-length novel. If you read the original novella, you will not want to miss out on the expanded story. 18+ for mature content.

Review

I liked Riley, who is a nice woman and a hard worker, but she was often plagued by bouts of insecurity when it came to the financial gap between her and Cam.  She’s considered the help and he’s considered political royalty, so she was always worried that she was not good enough for him.

Cam was a really nice guy and I liked how open he was with Riley.  He refused to hide his feelings or excitement and he wasn’t interested in playing games with her.  He wanted a relationship with her and he wasn’t afraid for her to know it.

KISS CAM is a stand-alone romantic comedy, which I found to be a very easy, light and fun read, but ultimately a little forgettable.  There’s some humour and some sexy scenes, but there’s no real conflict, nothing that gets the heart racing.  It is told in dual POVs and it comes with a nice HEA.

Steel

By Chiah Wilder

Steel

Synopsis

A fierce and feared warrior. His name is Steel, and he’s President of the Night Rebels MC. Part Navajo, part Irish, Steel is a respected leader of his brotherhood. With his tatted muscular body, ebony hair, and green eyes, he is a magnet to women. Never turning away a sexy body, he indulges in casual sex, but nothing more.

For him, defending his brotherhood and protecting his teenage daughter are foremost. Falling in love and being in a long term relationship don’t even make it on his list. He gave his heart to a woman when he was young and weak, but now he’s strong and has no room in his heart for love.

Then he meets his daughter’s social worker. His attraction to her is intense. Desire flares through him, and he’s drawn to her in a way that angers him. He doesn’t have time for a woman, but he can’t get the feisty, spirited caseworker out of his mind.
He wants to run his callused fingers through her hair.

He wants to crush his mouth to hers

He wants to devour her.

But she resists him. No woman has ever resisted him.

When he looks into her eyes, he sees the depths of sorrow and a spark of passion. She’s touched him. He’s never wanted a woman as much as he wants her.
And he always gets what he wants…no matter what.

From the moment Breanna Quine laid eyes on the rugged biker, her body betrayed her. And when she spotted the outlaw’s MC patch on his leather jacket, her blood turned to ice.

Hating bikers since her father gave up his family for the brotherhood, Breanna swore to never be around them again. Then the captivating Night Rebels President’s blazing, green-eyed gaze catches hers, and she is drawn to him like a moth is to fire.

But she can’t let herself fall for him, no matter how much her body buzzes whenever she is near him. As hard as she tries to fight her attraction to the dark, dangerous man, her resistance is weakening. Then when she sees his tenderness toward his daughter, it melts her heart. She has to keep reminding herself that he’s not only a biker, but he’s the worst kind—an outlaw.

Steel has his hands full trying to figure out who is supplying drugs to the teens of Alina, Colorado. Time is running out for him as danger comes knocking at his door threatening to destroy his family and the woman whom he has vowed to make his own.

Can two independent people put their past behind them in order to come together? Will they fight for love against the shadows and the danger that lurks all around them, threatening to destroy them forever?

Review

Steel is a fast paced mystery MC story with some romance but it left me wanting more from these two main characters in the romantic emotional sense.  I actually would have enjoyed this more without the storyline of her brother as I felt both of the two main characters had so much going on in their lives that the romantic journey took second place.

Breanna and Steel’s chemistry I did not feel until around the 30% mark as I felt there were many storylines lines for characters introduced into the book.

The mystery of the Candyman was well done in that for one I did not guess him until the big reveal and that I had thought two other characters were the Candyman so that was well hidden.

I really despised Breanna’s brother and Steel’s daughters storyline was incredibly sad and a tough journey At times.

The angle of the reservation was different but I did feel at times the story did not flow and I admit to reading over some of the mc drama as I wanted to get back to the romance of Steel and Breanna’s.

Two moments that did not flow for me was the altercation between Steel and Breanna’s when he pushed her down through her front door and then also their declaration of love, I did not feel it at that time. When her brother ransacked her house and there was no follow up perhaps with Steel understanding the drama she was dealing with her brother would have perhaps combined their stories of drama and drugs.

To me these two characters had such dramatic personal stories with so much heartache that their love story came in second but the ending does give them a HEA.

Between Heaven and Hell

By Erin Trejo

I

Synopsis

Cordae “Demon” Vitale.
People feared me. They respected me.
I was the Boss of the Vitale family at twenty-two.
One of the youngest in history.
I ran my business exceptionally.
My emotions were never part of this life.
Ava made me realize that there was more to life than what I had.
She pushed me to limits I didn’t think I could go to.
At the end of the day, I was forced between heaven and hell.
Much like the rest of my life, I was teetering on that fine line in between.

Losing something that means a lot to you, can change a person.
It changed me.
I will travel to the ends of the earth to get back that one thing that meant the most to me.
I will destroy everyone in my path to make that happen.

Review

Heaven and Hell, Cord and Ava are light and dark. I really enjoyed the Mafia story however I did find part 1 of this jumped quickly and I did not overly feel their connection, physically yes but not emotionally. Sections of this story were not fully explained, Ava’s parents, Daniel being warned off, why did he do that and then not monitor her if he was interested and then to just happen upon her at the clinic. He then says he knows all about her?

I easily followed Ava and her emotional connection to Amelia but with Cord I did not and then with the ending of part 1, his actions did not make sense because I had not believed he even barely interacted with Amelia for him to feel his loss and heartbreak, I can understand the anger but that was because he was the boss and he was taken by surprise.

Now onto Park 2 – this is where the story just blew it out of the park, I thought the pacing action of the underlying Mafia story was perfect and then it was like a light was switched on and I could understand and feel Cord through the writing, I just wish this had happened in Park 1, although Amelia’s part was sad it did not overly upset me as she was really barely in the story line apart from a few odd paragraphs. It would have been better to see more regular interactions between those two characters to see a build-up of affection and acceptance with each other to then understand the devastation. I know I keep harping on about Amelia but I do believe she was a pivotal  character to Cord’s make up as a man and his emotional wellbeing and it was the start of him unravelling his cold demeanour and perhaps dreaming of having a family and being worthy of love.

I was surprised and excited with the new character in part 2 in Italy, however again would have loved to have seen a more detailed conversation between Cord and Ava on those lost years – I wanted to know more!

The sex scenes between Cord and Ava were very enjoyable. Ava was just a lovely character, I also would have liked to have known more about her family in part 1 as it was just fast forwarded over her and also perhaps a couple of chapters on her relationship with Gambino would have tied things together. I would have liked to have seen Daniel and Cord early on having that conversation where Cord told him to never see Ava again instead of just hearing it second hand from Cord in a conversation with one of his men. Was Daniel with Ava because her father was the Mayor? Was there a gentleman’s agreement to date his daughter? Her mother too, never saw her then she was another storyline?

I am wondering whether this would have flowed better with perhaps Ava having some POV chapters at critical moments in their relationship – particularly in Italy, with Amelia, her own family and also Daniel.

An enjoyable Mafia story, I really did love these two main characters and Cord definitely had moments of pure darkness then Ava would show him the light and give him hope.

Favourite Quote:  “It means my beautiful girl.” Ava smiles and the rest of the world ceases  to exist. In this moment, she is the girl that brought light into my soul.

A Harmless Little Plan (Harmless # 3)

By Meli Raine

Synopsis

Turns out there was a second video from that awful night four years ago. Mine wasn’t the only tape.

Too bad mine wasn’t the worst.

Drew can’t protect me no matter how hard he tries, but the roles are flipped now. I have to help him, but I’m not wired that way. Not anymore. That one night changed me more than anyone knows.

More than anyone could predict.

Three men think they’re above the law. They’re right.

But I’m willing to go beneath the law to make sure they never harm anyone else. Their threats don’t scare me. 

When you have nothing left to lose because someone took it all away, you create the most dangerous creature imaginable.

Me.

Game over.

Review

After loving and quickly devouring the first two books in the Harmless trilogy, I’m sad to say that I found A HARMLESS LITTLE PLAN to be a little disappointing.  Why?  Because despite the happy-for-now ending, I felt there was no real closure in this story.  There are a lot of loose threads and unanswered questions, and I am not a fan of either of those things.

After finding out in the first book that Lindsay’s three friends lied to the police and media about her rape, we never heard about them again or found out why they turned against her.  What did they get out of it?  We never found out why Drew’s friends turned against him either.  Yes, they got money and fame, but what they did to Lindsay and Drew was so hateful and violent that there had to be more to it than just getting paid.  We do find out that people within the NSA, CIA and FBI all have their fingers in this scandalous pie, but we never heard about them being arrested.  Then I have to wonder, if the man pulling the strings was so well connected, why did he feel so threatened and why did he need to have Lindsay raped in the first place?  But then I guess if there’s no rape, there’s no story.  It was also mentioned that this same man may have been involved in the killing of Drew’s parents, and that someone high up (we don’t know where) targeted Drew because they think he’s a threat.  Both of these claims were never investigated and we didn’t find out if these claims were true.  These are just a handful of questions I was left with at the end of this book.  Will they be answered in another book or series, or will we be left hanging?

The first 50% of the book is where all the excitement lies.  After that, the book slows down a lot as we watch Lindsay and Drew heal from their ordeal.  I liked both Drew and Lindsay and was very glad to see them get their revenge and happy ending.  I was hoping to find just one redeeming quality in Lindsay’s mother, but by the end of this book I hated her as much as I did in the beginning of the series.  Throughout the series, I’ve alternated between liking and hating her father, and in the end I found him gutless.  He does love his daughter, but I think he loves his career more and will put it before her.

A HARMLESS LITTLE PLAN is told in dual POVs and is the final book in the Harmless trilogy, which cannot be read as stand-alones.  There is no epilogue, but it comes with a HFN ending.  Honestly, if all the loose threads had been taken care of, if nothing was left unresolved, this would have been a 5❤️ read for sure.

Please Note:  This book contains scenes that may be triggers for some people.

Shaken, Not Stirred (Last Call # 5)

By Sawyer Bennett

br-0202-shaken-not-stirred

Synopsis

She swore she would never fall to any man.
He took one look at her and vowed to bring her down.

Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she’s beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She’s wondering if it’s finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.

Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can’t get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he’s determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.

It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.

Review

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is the fifth and final book in the Last Call series and is about Casey (Hunter and Brody’s little sister) and Tenn (a new arrival in town).

After having her heart broken at the tender age of eighteen, Casey has sworn of relationships.  She avoids good, kind and honest men because those types have the potential to thaw the ice around her heart.  Instead, she sleeps with men exactly like her first boyfriend, because when she disposes of them and makes them feel worthless, she doesn’t feel worthless herself.  I liked her enough, but at times I found her a little immature and I didn’t like it when she played games, especially with Tenn.

I really liked Tenn.  He seemed like a cool and easygoing guy and I loved how much he loved his daughter, willing to move across the country to be closer to her.  However, for a man who hates his ex-wife because of the mind games she plays, I was surprised that he didn’t seem to have a problem with Casey’s games and that he would play them himself at times.

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  I thought I recognised Tenn’s name, but it wasn’t until he talked about being a cowboy that I realised he’s Woolf’s brother from The Wicked Horse series, which is a spin-off of this series.  Yes, I read the series out of order.  It also took me a while to realise that Kyle (Andrea’s brother) is the same Kyle from WICKED BOND, the undercover ATF agent that was killed.  Spoiler alert:  He wasn’t really killed, because his own book, FINDING KYLE, came out last month.

Sugar On The Edge (Last Call # 3)

By Sawyer Bennett

br-0118-sugar-on-the-edge

Synopsis

He’s utterly alone…

Tortured and existing in a dark spiral of despair, bestselling British author, Gavin Cooke, has come to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to escape the seedy lifestyle he had been living in London and in a desperate attempt to regain his writing focus. He’s twisted, bitter and angry at the world. He’s a loner… needing not a single thing other than his Scotch and a laptop upon which he can bang out his next erotic, dark thriller.

She’s running in place and getting nowhere…

Savannah Shepherd’s life is falling apart. Her dream of being a wildlife photographer seems a distant memory and she’s barely able to make ends meet. Driving herself forward with no clear goals apparent, she’s about ready to pack up her bags and head home with her tail between her legs.

Two unlikely lovers…

He’s raw, forceful and a dirty talker. She’s a flowers and romance type of girl. Yet within each other, they find a mutual craving that can only be satisfied by giving in to their desires for one another.

Lust turns into something more… something they were not looking for but tentatively accept. Will it be enough to push them past the obstacles of Gavin’s bitter past?

Review

SUGAR ON THE EDGE is the third book in the Last Call series and is about Savannah (Gabby’s old roommate) and Gavin (a new arrival in town).

Savannah is a nice, caring and honest woman, all traits that Gavin believes make her weak and a doormat and ultimately not worthy of his time.  When you learn more about her, you realise she can also be strong and determined, she just picks her battles.

Gavin has arrived in town for three reasons: to get away from his past; to clean up his act; and to finish his current novel.  He suffered an tragic loss years ago and since then he’s become bitter and hateful.  Honestly, he was impossible to like in the beginning because he was very rude and crude, deliberately pushing Savannah for no other reason than he liked to upset and embarrass her.  His personality changes drastically when he starts a relationship with her, but it takes just one mistake for him to return to his bitter and hateful existence, and that was disappointing.

To be honest, I can’t understand how Gavin and Savannah came together⎯he treated her like crap and the main reason she slept with him was to prove to him that his impression of her was wrong.  When they hit a little bump in their relationship, he was absolutely horrible to her and left her alone for months without any contact.  I liked Savannah, but I hated that she forgave him so quickly after what he said and did to her.  Don’t get me wrong, his apology was beautiful, but I just can’t see anyone who spent the past few months heartbroken being able to forgive someone after a two minute declaration.

SUGAR ON THE EDGE is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.

Wolf Prey (Wolf Cove #3)

By Nina West

Synopsis

Forced to leave Alaska to run the family farm while her father recovers from a tragic accident, Abbi heads home knowing she has the one thing she wants most again –Henry’s affections. She’s determined to not let anyone get in the way of that again.

But love for Abbi has never been easy.

With an overbearing mother who believes she has the right to approve who her daughter loves, a childhood ex-boyfriend who will do anything to win her back, and a wealthy, handsome boyfriend who always gets what he wants, Abbi soon realizes she may have to make some impossible choices.

WOLF PREY is the third book in the sexy, addictive Wolf Cove Series, and should be read after WOLF BAIT and WOLF BITE.

Review

Firstly, I loved book 1 and 2, the setting in Alaska, the constant sexual chemistry and fantastic characters around Wolf Cove. So I am devastated that Wolf Prey I have not enjoyed, the main reason is that Abbi and Henry’s relationship did not feature in my view as much, I did not feel it developing.  I felt so sorry for Abbi, she was alone and being ambushed at every turn and I felt that Henry left her to the wolves.  He just came in threw money around and then left her to all the judgements.

We were given too much interference by other characters and all their drama, back stabbing, and gossiping – it drove me mad.  I got to the point when Abbi’s mother starting ranting that I began skimming her paragraphs as I was over listening to that woman and her meddling and condescending tone and don’t get me started on Jed’s parents and her school friends.

I lost the passionate connection between Abbi and Henry and when I got to the 80% mark I just knew that there was a book 4 and nothing was going to be resolved in this book – I was frustrated.  Yes there was a declaration at the end but the whole trip to France to me was just an excuse for one particular erotic scene and by this point I was really disappointed with the whole progress of the Wolf Cove story.  I felt the addition of that woman from France just did not make sense to cementing their relationship when at the start of Wolf Prey they discussed and argued over their past dalliances with third parties.  So why bring in a new woman to just torment and give Abbi more to worry over and feel like a useless farm girl?

I did not want to be stuck on a farm for 75% of this book listening to Jed, Abbi’s mother and all the church congregation gossiping.

Where was the “Prey” in this story, I did not feel this, I am so disappointed as this series was one of my highlights from 2016.

Will I read Book 4? Honestly not sure, I think it could be highly explosive considering Henry’s brother is coming back into the story and he provides drama so I will have to wait and see.

Perhaps with time I will want to see just what is in store for Abbi and Henry – so long as they don’t go back to that dam farm.

I really wanted more for Abbi in Wolf Prey.

Treachery, deceit, and danger threaten them. 

When an unknown enemy holds all the cards, how can they survive the wicked games?

Review

WICKED GAMES is the first book in the Steele Security series and the first book I’ve read from A.D. Justice.  It is told in the past and present day, with a good portion of the story taking place between three to five years ago.  I can’t say much about the main characters because I felt the arms trafficking side of the story overshadowed them.  Or maybe that was the part of the story I was most interested in and enjoyed the most.  I will say that the person behind the arms trafficking was obvious and I hope it was supposed to be.

I could be wrong, but I believe this may be the author’s debut novel, which would explain the few technical issues I had problems with.  The story is told in multiple POVs, with the POV changing without notice, often several times within the same chapter.  There were occasional gaps in time that also came without notice.  One chapter, told in Brianna’s POV, takes place over several months, then the very next chapter, told in Noah’s POV, starts all the way back from where the previous chapter started.  These things disrupted the flow of the story, and overall I struggled with this style of writing.  Moving on, I thought it was odd that when Brianna was thinking about her parents, she would refer to them by their first names instead of Mom and Dad.  She would do the same with Noah, one minute calling him Noah and then switching to Reaper.  Lastly, Reaper’s team was called out several days before Brianna was to go home, but later on she says his team was called out just hours before she left.  While this is not a huge mistake, it is a sloppy one.

Despite what I’ve said above, overall I thought WICKED GAMES was an okay read, one that came with a HEA for Noah and Brianna.  I bought the first four books in this series as a box-set, and I will give the second book a try before deciding whether or not I will continue with the series.
