By Piper Davenport

18+ for language and sexual situations…

He must move heaven and earth, not to mention circumvent the Russian mob and a deadly MC, in order to keep her safe. But his goal isn’t just to save her life. It’s also to win her back.

Review

Full disclosure here I have read NINE of Piper Davenport’s books and her Dogs of Fire is one of my favourite MC series and A Nun Walks into a Bar (Nun-Fiction Book #1) was one of my favourite reads for 2016.   So when I was offered book 2, I was like “SCORE” for Lulu as all my reviews for this author are either four or five stars as I love her characters and how she tells her stories.

So I have to be honest and admit that A Nun Goes to Jail just did not connect with me, the story left me feeling a bit un-fulfilled – it felt rushed and pushed aside for too many sex scenes.  Perhaps it is me because I really loved the characters and the humour and we also get to see more of Sadie and Ryder who I love so I am really trying to figure out where I went wrong? 

I enjoyed the characters and loved seeing  my favourites from the Dogs of Fire however I did feel that the overall Russian/Mob/MC suspense got really lost and I for one really enjoy a good dose of that in my romance.  Loved mentioning the “Roses for Anna” concert in the story as the “Broken Road” series is going to rock “pun intended”!!

Towards the middle all I seemed to be reading about was Alexa and Reese having sex and this is where the base story got lost.  I did find myself thinking stop having sex I want to know what is happening with the trial, where are the Russians and the ending felt rushed and what about the other girls at the convent and also her friend and brother?  I wanted Reese to be more alpha male protective with her instead of wanting to have sex if that makes sense, there were pockets of moments I went yes now I can see the emotional connection, when he sneaks in and holds her after her breakdown, these were moments of romance that I savoured.

Finally I did like how the author fast forwarded three years to see how their lives had changed.

One Taste of Angel: A Dark Virgin Romance (Iron Norseman MC)

By Violetta Rand

Synopsis

Their love was the stuff of Shakespeare – two star-crossed lovers from rival MC’s, divided by their families’ bloody history, but fate has given Eagle and Serafina a second chance. Can the biker and the stripper find their redemption in Violetta Rand’s sexy standalone romance, One Taste of Angel?

Eagle  
I’ve bled for my club. Taken four bullets. Buried eight brothers in six years. Screwed a hundred women. And only loved one. The one I lost. But there’s something about Serafina that reminds me of just exactly what was taken from me. Not just because I can’t resist a damsel in distress.

Serafina
To Eagle, I’m dead. Murdered and cremated, my ashes interred at the local cemetery. Part of a past I left long ago to save his life. Seeing him now, touching him again makes me weak, even if he doesn’t recognize the woman I’ve become. Since my escape from Holly Beach five years ago, I’ve lived by my own rules. And no matter how much I love Eagle, he’s not going to break those rules.

Review

Eagle and Angel, two lovers reunited and what an explosive story which I totally devoured.

It really is a MC Romeo and Juliet with the tales of two families entwined in a dark, dangerous but in the end romantic tale of new beginnings and second chances at love.

Whilst reading this story you are basically taken on a roller coaster ride waiting for all the secrets to be revealed and how the both MC clubs are going to react to the revelations – the author does not disappoint at all.

The family dynamics of Angel are brutal and barbaric and had me fearing the worst for her.  Eagle’s club family were great characters with heart and soul and supported this story and gave it hope and light when it became intense.

My favourite chapters were when he realised who Seraphina really was and how they both reacted and the emotional turmoil I felt for Angel upon those pages was heartbreaking.  I also loved the scenes around the cabin – loved those parts.

I loved the epilogue, it gives you closure and also the fact we are given thoughts from both characters so you can really connect to them and this suspense element at the end was perfect for a MC romance.

The Backup Boyfriend (The Boyfriend Chronicles # 1)

By River Jaymes

Synopsis

Professionally, Dr. Alec Johnson has almost reached his goals. As this year’s recipient of a humanitarian award with his ex, Dr. Tyler Hall, Alec’s work with the homeless is about to be recognized. Unfortunately, his personal life sucks because now he has to attend several events alongside Tyler—with his ex’s new boyfriend in tow. In an attempt to lift his mood and break out of his rut, Alec purchases a motorcycle he has no idea how to start.

Dylan Booth doesn’t have time for Dr. Clueless and his fickle 1964 Harley, but the cocky mechanic can’t say no to the request for help. Having spent his teen years on the streets, and losing his best friend to HIV, Dylan decides teaching the do-gooder how to ride is the least he can do. But watching Alec flounder in his ex’s company throws Dylan into protector mode, and the confirmed hetero introduces himself as Alec’s new boyfriend.

The ex suspects Dylan is lying.

Alec claims Dylan’s plan is insane.

And Dylan’s not sure he can fake being gay.

But Dylan’s a master bullshitter, and the phony PDA soon turns ultra-hot. Alec can’t afford to get attached, and Dylan’s learned everyone eventually leaves. Unfortunately, playing the backup boyfriend is starting to feel way too real…

Review

I read THE BACKUP BOYFRIEND a few years ago and it was one of those stories that would pop into my head from time to time, even though I couldn’t remember the title or the author.  I was finally able to find it and re-read it to see if it was as good as I remembered.  It was.  I didn’t take a lot of notes, and it is slow moving with not a lot of action, but it was an enjoyable read.

Alec and Dylan are both very nice guys who have mutual friends, yet have never met.  Alec is the sweet one who has known he was gay since he was a teen and loves being in a relationship.  He comes across as the more sensitive and insecure of the two, but at the same time he loves topping Dylan.  Dylan is the complete opposite of Alec.  He’s straight, avoids commitment and is more rough around the edges than what Alec is used to.  He’s surprised by his feelings for Alec, but I liked how he wasn’t afraid to embrace them—for the most part.  I liked watching him grow and learn to accept the things he always thought he didn’t want.

THE BACKUP BOYFRIEND is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, each book can be read as a stand-alone.  It comes with a sweet epilogue and a HFN ending for Dylan and Alec.

The Boyfriend Chronicles Series

Hook (No Prisoners MC #4)

By Lilly Atlas

Synopsis

After ten years away, Marcie finally ventures back to where she grew up. She isn’t in town for twenty-four hours when she crosses paths with Hook and Striker, the two boys who kept her safe and happy as a young girl. Only they aren’t boys anymore. They are fully grown, muscular, alpha men. Members of the No Prisoners Motorcycle Club. All through her teenage years, Marcie’s heart belonged to Hook. Not that he ever seemed to notice. And it appears that as an adult, not much has changed with regard to her feelings toward the sexy biker. But a bossy, alpha man is not what independent Marcie is looking for.

The moment Hook lays eyes on Marcie, it’s as though the last ten years apart never existed. Back when she was off limits, he wanted her, and it doesn’t take long before he realizes he still wants her. Marcie’s changed, though. She’s no longer a frightened teenager in need of a haven. Now she’s a beautiful, confident woman, and a bit too independent. Will Hook be able to convince Marcie a life with him wouldn’t stifle her freedom? Their relationship is tested when Marcie clings to her hard-won life and when an aspect of that life threatens not only their future together, but their safety as well.

Review

Hook is the third book of this series I have read, I have still not read book 1, in saying that this is a Novella, so this story is quick and there is immediate connection with the two main characters Marcie and Hook.

Hook centres around a few days where Marcie returns to bury her mother and we are given  quick glimpses back into her growing up and how her friendship with Hook and Striker form.  It is endearing the way these two guys looked after the young neighbour in their trailer park and it does help the reader to connect after their reunion and cements the affection between all three as friends.

Hook and Marcie’s sex scenes are passionate and steamy and do not disappoint and it was interesting to follow Marcie’s struggle with allowing her friends to help her and also to lean on the man who loves her.

Marcie’s ex boyfriend provides drama and suspense and ultimately entwines these two characters together in the end.

I read this Novella in a day, could not put it down and I could have honestly read a full novel on these two characters, they had great chemistry and friendship.

Techy (Devils Souls MC #2)

By LeAnn Ashers

Synopsis

Alisha

My story isn’t a very conventional one. I met my man online, which isn’t a shocking thing nowadays.

I sure didn’t know that he would rescue me from hell.

I had been stuck in hell with no way out. Then Techy swooped in with guns blazing and took me out of there. A knight in shining leather.

I didn’t expect to feel what I feel; that I would fall in love, that I would feel safe and protected.

I had never felt that before.

Until Techy.

Techy is a member of the Devil’s Souls MC, the most notorious MC in Texas. They love hard and fight harder. You mess with their family, hell is something you’d beg for.

Shit hits the fan when someone from my past comes to get what my dead father never gave back to him.

My name is Alisha and this is my story.

Techy

A man is after my woman.

He won’t be a man much longer.

He dares to try and take her from me?

Hell is something he’ll beg for. Because nobody, and I mean nobody, looks in Alisha’s direction in a way I don’t like. If they do? They’ll be eating their teeth.

If you threaten her? Death is an easy way out.

I will do whatever it takes to protect her.

This book has a HEA, with no cheating and a obsessed alpha. If you don’t like instalove this book isn’t for you.

Review

Firstly I love the cover of Techy!

Techy is definitely instalove with plenty of MC drama and action and for me it was too fast and I struggled at times with the flow of the story.  I wanted to stop and savour some moments and we just jumped ahead at times too frequently.

One story that did intrigue me is Vinney, Trey and Lani, now that had me wanting to know more about those three.

I admit have read an obscene amount of MC romance and there were just some situations in this story that just were a little out there.  Some of the scenes with the women and fighting other women and the over the top reactions just wore me down and I became annoyed with them.  Also they are apparently under threat and there is no lock downs, they go out to dinner without protection and I kept wondering at some point it is all going to come undone and then when it does the location is just bizarre when all through the book I hear of all the gadgets protecting the mc club and the tight security.

However I do want to say I loved the beginning when Techy rescues and helps in the recovery of Alisha, he definitely cares and loves her back from an awful physical encounter.  Alisha is a very naive character after being locked away by her father but I did enjoy watching their connection grow in the emotional and physical sense.

This is my second book by this author.

Fear the Beard (The Dixie Warden Rejects MC #2)

By Lani Lynn Vale

Synopsis

Tally is a twenty-year-old single mother struggling to finish nursing school. Has she made mistakes in life? Sure, but her daughter isn’t one of them. She works hard, she studies even harder, and she’s only a few weeks away from graduating.
She’s living her life the best she knows how when she witnesses a near miss motorcycle accident between a car and a biker. A biker that happens to be the most talked about teacher at her college.

The moment she meets those startling blue, narrowly-escaped-death eyes, she realizes quickly that life as she knows it has changed. No longer will she be content to let life pass her by, even if it puts everything she’s worked so hard for in jeopardy.

***

Tommy is a highly skilled doctor. A teacher. A veteran. A fully-patched member of The Dixie Wardens MC. He’s lonely, but also set in his ways. What will it take for this man to accept that he needs to make some changes in his life? Apparently, it’ll take a guy in a truck, who’s preoccupied with his phone rather than focused on the road, nearly plowing into him on his bike at seventy miles per hour. Oh, and a twenty-something year old nursing student witnessing the entire thing from only a few feet away.

It only takes a second, a single heartbeat in time, as he looks into her worry-filled eyes to realize that he’d give anything for a single night with her. He may lose his job in the process, but after that one incredible night turns into an amazing weekend, he knows it’s worth the risk for the promise of her forever

Review

Firstly I love the cover of Fear the Beard and also I love the Dedication.  I recommend you read it as the story will make so much more sense and it is just beautiful between Tally and Tallulah, the love this mother has for her daughter.  As soon as I realised Tally get’s Hangry I knew she was my kind of girl!

Another beautiful part of this story is the way Tommy is with Tallulah, it fits perfectly with him being a doctor, brought tears to my eyes with the way he cared for her and also Tally for that matter.  There was great humour and banter between the characters and the age difference between Tommy and Tally made sense as he provided the calm and mature comfort for her and Tally also was very mature for her age considering she had her daughter so young, it all just made sense.

Fear the Beard is paced perfectly and dual POV help connect all the stories and Hadley provided an interesting surprise and I also enjoyed Ghost.

Tommy and Tally’s sex scenes were passionate and full of fire and I really enjoyed watching their story grow including Tally’s family involvement and of course the MC and this story was ended perfectly.

Shutter speed: A Snapshot Novella

By Freya Barker

Synopsis

She likes picking up her camera because it allows her to see things through a different lens. Like when she lost her job recently and instead of focusing on what she’s forced to leave behind, she zooms in on the new options opening up in front of her. Or when a dangerous looking silver fox comes rolling up her path on a FatBoy, and her digital output shows a deep loneliness, matching her own, in his ice-blue eyes.
But when she’s working on making her dreams come true, she inadvertently captures something in her viewfinder she can’t un-see.

He wasn’t supposed to be here, but he can’t seem to escape his old life. Stuck in an old trailer in the mountains, he walks a fine line between ruse and reality. With the arrival of a young-looking pixie—who turns out to be a full grown, hot-blooded woman—his balance is thrown.
He tries to avoid her, but with the little pixel peeper snapping everything in sight, she unintentionally risks his exposure.

And his focus needs to be sharp to keep her from danger.

Review

Shutter speed is a novella that has a lot of suspense to it.  Definitely set the story up between Ben and Isla.

Isla is taking over the campground for her Uncle who is going to take care of her ailing Aunt. She has a passion for photography which just might get her into trouble.

Ben is trying to move onto the next chapter in his life but he keeps getting dragged back.  The first time he sees Isla he knows there is something special about her but in his current line of work the best thing to do is push her away.  But Isla is very good at being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Ben must work hard at achieving his goals and keeping her safe.

Shutter speed sets this up to be a thrilling series.  I look forward to the next chapter in Ben and Isla’s story.

Undiscovered (Amoveo Rising #1)

By Sara Humphreys

Synopsis

He’s the man of her dreams
A long time ago, Zander Lorens was cursed to walk the earth stripped of his Dragon Clan powers. Every night, trapped in a recurring nightmare, Zander relives his darkest moment. He can hardly believe it when the dream changes and a beautiful young woman appears. Zander believes she’s the key to ending his torment. Finding her in the real world is one thing, but how will he convince her of who-and what-she really is?

She’s the end to his nightmare
Rena McHale uses her unique sensitivity as a private investigator, touting herself as a “human divining rod” and finder of the lost. By day she struggles with sensory overload, and by night her sleep is haunted by a fiery dragon shifter. Nothing in her life makes sense, until the man from her dreams shows up at her door with a proposition…

Review

Undiscovered is a story of guilt, family and love.  It also explores relationships on many levels. Brothers, girlfriends, adoptive parents and lovers.  Plus finding out that dragons still exist.

Zander and Zed are twins that are dragon shifters.  They are cursed.  Zander stuck in human form and Zed trapped in hibernation as a dragon.  This curse happened all over a girl that the brothers were fighting over.  Zander will do anything to free Zed, even sacrifice his own happiness. He believes that if he can get Rena, Zed’s mate, to him that the curse will be broken. The only problem is Rena doesn’t know anything of his world and definitely doesn’t subscribe to being anyone’s mate.

Rena is an independent soul.  She was on the streets when she was found by Vito, who would become a kind of adoptive parent to her.  Rena knew she was special because she could sense things through touch.  Even though she knew that Zander was different and was pushing her away for reasons she couldn’t understand, she couldn’t help but want him.

As they made their way across the country to help his brother, their bonds deepen.  Zander must make a decision between the love that he feels for Rena and for his brother.

Fans of the Amoveo series will love Undiscovered.  It has all the elements that makes that series so good.  We get to revisit the characters of that series in this book which is a nice treat. This novel sets this new journey for the dragon shifters up.  They aren’t necessarily part of the Amoveo but they have the same qualities that made the Amoveo special.

Sentinel’s Kiss (Sentinels of Babylon #2)

By Jamie K Schmidt

Synopsis

A fiercely protective bad boy. An innocent reporter in serious trouble. They shouldn’t work, but after he throws her onto his bike, there’s no going back.

If Josh Lehman learned one thing as a Green Beret, it’s patience. Josh founded the Sentinels of Babylon because he was sick and tired of watching scumbags cheat the system—scumbags like the man who murdered his sister. Of course, if Josh’s sniper rifle was linked to the death of his ex-brother-in-law, that might be a problem. The bigger problem is the nosy reporter who’s this close to exposing the club. Josh has to find a way to keep her hot mouth from talking . . . but he’ll be damned if he lets someone take her from him. Not on his watch.

Ashley Carver thought she’d do anything for a scoop. That was before her latest story leads to multiple attempts on her life. Ashley’s been investigating a homicide that has gone unsolved for five years when she uncovers evidence tying the vigilantes of the Sentinels of Babylon to a revenge killing. Now she’s in their crosshairs. But after Josh defies all notions of club loyalty to come to Ashley’s aid, soon they’re burning up the sheets—and taking on the world.

Review

Sentinel’s of Babylon or SOBs are a vigilante group that right wrongs that were dismissed by the legal system.   In Sentinel’s Kiss they are righting the murder of Sentinel’s sister, Sarah.  They know who killed her and are ready to act but they find out a reporter has come across new information. They decide there is more to this act of violence than mets the eye and must follow the clues.

Sentinel, or Josh, is a military man who is about to end his brother-in-laws life.  Josh knows that he killed his sister and her unborn child.  The SOB’s have done all their research and they are ready to complete this mission.  But right as they were ready to take the shot, Josh notices that Ashley was there to get an interview.  Josh knew that there was more to this story that he would have to track down.

Ashley Carver is a reporter always after to a good story no matter if her life is in danger or not. She is a daredevil with a solid heart.  Ashley is on the side of the facts. She isn’t looking for a long term relationship with Josh but they have instant chemistry.  There is something about Josh that helps calm her life.  She hasn’t had an easy go of it and deserves to start the next chapter of her life.

Sentinel’s Kiss has a good mystery to it.  Sarah’s murder leads to something deeper and ends up with a twist at the end.  Things aren’t always what they seem.  I loved all of the SOB’s.  I think that they all have an interesting story to tell.

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.
