My Review of Bound by Desire (Ravage MC Bound #2)
by Ryan Michele
My Rating 5 Stars!
Oh, Deke be stilled my heart! The very misunderstood man within the Ravage family. Rylie OMG! She is kickass and the perfect fit for Deke! I loved the emotional journey the author took me on with their story. Deke and his strength to get clean and prove himself to those he had walked away from so many years ago. Rylie she has demons of her own and she is the light to Dekes dark. I enjoyed so many elements of this book and the only way to really get an idea of just how perfect this storyline is, You must read it for yourself! Bravo to Ryan Michele for giving us such a incredible story filled with all kinds of sexy, drama, grit…All things we look for in an MC read.
Bound by Family was Amazing!! Can’t wait for more!!!

Wayfarers MC.

When Mica
Scott moved into a quiet Chicago suburb, she wasn’t ready for what she found.
Her new neighbor is bossy, kinda scary, and defines hotness. Sure, he’s a hunky
alpha male, the kind most women secretly long for, but the man oozes danger.
And Mica isn’t most women. After a chance encounter brings a new man to her
door, Mica struggles to find a path between what she wants, and what she needs.


Mica was raised on a ranch in Northeast Texas. Life was hard, but not
impossible…until she met her own personal nightmare one night at a rodeo. She
escaped his abuse by putting things behind her, isolating herself by moving to
Chicago for college and work.


Davis Mason is the hard-living president of the Rebel Wayfarers, a motorcycle
club operating out of Chicago. With just one encounter, he becomes determined
to keep Mica safe…whether she wants him to or not. He will use every asset in
his control to manage Mica, while holding himself aloof from taking the one
thing he really wants…her.


Daniel Rupert is a successful businessman. He owns a trucking company and a
hockey team, for which he is the star forward. Meeting Mica and Mason when he
helped foil an attempt on her life, he began working jointly with Mason to keep
her safe. But unlike Mason, Daniel is not satisfied with a platonic
relationship. He insinuates himself into Mica’s life, and he only


Events escalate and Mica’s very life hangs in the balance as old threats
resurface and the men in her life scramble to keep her alive.

My Review of Mica (Rebel Wayfarers MC #1)
by MariaLisa Demora
My Rating 3.5 Stars
This was a slow burn read for me. I’ve never read this author before and Rebel Wayfarers have been calling to me. There are many elements within this story and some that could be triggers for readers.
Mica’s story is very different for an MC read and not in a bad way. I did enjoy it and struggled with some parts but only because I wanted it to move a little quicker. Mica’s character made me crazy at times and the two men who were vying for her attention was definitely an interesting storyline with a lot of grit. I look forward to the next Rebel Wayfarer MC book because now I must finish this series!

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an
early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library,
devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she
says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and
found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available,
I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she
embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a
publishing company for a couple decades.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any
genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap,
hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing
through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live
music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars
[read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection
of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

Cleo Hill is a married woman, in love with a man she’s never really known—her husband, whom she hasn’t seen in eleven years.

Paxton “Torch” Hill is a Notorious Devil, a man who’s been wrestling with his personal demons since before he knew the horrors of war.

When a threat against his club means danger could be lurking around his estranged wife’s door, Paxton is determined to protect her. Yet, one look at the woman he left behind, and he knows his plans are about to change. 

The past is not an easy thing to forget, especially not for a woman scorned. While Cleo isn’t the innocent catch he once knew, there’s something about that rough and ready man she’s not sure she can deny.

After all—they promised each other forever.

Alpha Book Club – “The author kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Let me tell you, emotional rollercoaster. It was up and down, forward and backward.”

32 years young… born and raised in California, did a stint in Oregon only to return to the Golden State. Lived that life a while until the Lone Star State called to us, Hill Country, Texas is where we call home, where our boots rest and loving that country life.

My Review of Rough and Ready Rough and Ready (Notorious Devils MC #5)
by Hayley Faiman
My Rating 4.5 Stars
What can I say, other than I’ve been waiting for the man’s story and the author gave me Paxton “Torch” Hill in this story of second chances and it was amazing! Torch is off the charts sexy with all kinds of alpha tendencies and has always been a bit of a mystery to me.
But the author delivers one hell of a storyline that goes back eleven years, yet the heart knows what the heart knows it’s just a matter of putting all the anger of those years into a passion that hopefully can’t be denied amongst Torch and Cleo, “But” you’ll have to read it for yourself as this story should be experienced!

I’m Jade and I’m a closeted writer. I’ve been writing short stories and the likes since I was a young girl but kept all of those words for myself. I’ve been told a number of times that I write well and that I should publish. The thing is… you can’t put yourself out there for that level of criticism unless you’re ready. I had a small blog years ago but I failed to keep up with it because I wasn’t as committed to my craft. Those days are long gone and here I am. It’s take a while but I’m finally ready to make that leap.

I’m working on my first series that will include multiple books of a BDSM series. I write Erotica, Romance, Fantasy, Fantasy Romance, and other forms of Fiction. I also love to write Shorts. They can be as short as a bio of a person that I’ve seen or imagined to as long as a few chapters. I take creative inspiration from everything around me but I never use the source directly. For instance, if I see a blue bird singing in a tree by the time that my mind has come up with a story it be a black cat purring the same tune.

As for the fun stuff! I also read by the dozen, use my culinary skills to bake and cook, entertain a swarm of nieces, nephews, and any other adoptive children that I can. I love to host parties, entertain, and talk to my two dogs who happily keep my feet warm.

I was born and raised in good old Cincinnati, OH but I love to travel and see new places. I have yet to travel outside of the US but I’m working on it. I don’t have any biological children but you can’t tell all my previously mentioned children that. Feel free to stick around to find out more about me because I’m sure there’s a lot more.

My Review of Ryder (Knights Corruption MC #5)
by S. Nelson
My Rating 4.5 Stars!
I’ve really enjoyed this series, and it’s sad to see it come to an end, But the author ended the series with the story of Ryder which she couldn’t have planned better as he was the perfect character to close out the Knights Corruption MC series.
Ryder’s story has every element I look for in an MC read, Torment, angst, drama filled grit and sexy as hell scenes. Ryder had it all! Ryder and Braylen’s journey was full of many twists and turns and many secrets revealed, and I was very excited to delve in and find out all of them!
Ryder’s character has always been a very intense when we have been given small doses of him throughout the series and his story is one that must be read! I highly recommend this series and Ryder’s story is a MUST READ as we get closure for all our favorite men from the KC.

I’m Only Here For The Beard by Lani Lynn Vale Release Blitz w/Review

Title: I’m Only Here For The Beard
Series: The Dixie Warden Rejects #4
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: May 31, 2017
Photographer: Furious Fotog
Model: Hankins Fitness

Sean is a man with needs—needs that a lot of women were ready and willing to fulfill. Yet, the only woman that he wants to fulfill them dumped him for another man. A man who’s a member of his MC and is someone he has to see every single day and twice on Sundays.
He’s bitter and angry. He’s definitely not in the right frame of mind when it comes to dealing with women. Which is unfortunate for his new partner, Naomi, a fresh-out-of-school and totally green paramedic. 
Naomi’s got enough problems on her plate. A brother who’s self-destructive and doesn’t care who he takes down with him. A man who she’s in love with but who doesn’t love her. A job that she hates because it is a constant reminder of what she can’t have.
Desperate to distance herself from her problems, she runs, taking the first job in her field that she finds willing to take on someone with so little experience.
The last thing she needs is a perpetually pissed off partner, especially when he sets her blood on fire.
But life doesn’t ask how much you can handle when it dishes out challenges. It just keeps piling them on until you’ve bested them or you’ve buckled under them.
Sean really doesn’t want to like his new partner, Naomi. He just wants to be left alone to live his life however he damn well pleases and without complications.
Naomi doesn’t care what he wants, she can’t be anything but herself. It isn’t long before she’s breaking down his walls and making him feel again. She’s trying to pull him closer and he’s pushing her away.
It’s not long before Sean sees the error of his ways.
It’s too bad, though, that by the time he realizes she’s the one, Naomi’s already gone.

My Review of I’m Only Here for the Beard (The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC #4) by Lani Lynn Vale
My Rating 4.5 Stars
I loved the co-worker/friends to lover style romance with this one. Sean and Naomi each having similar luck with relationships. Each starting fresh, yet again and Naomi being good at what she does, and Sean being the same become friends and their journey is one vulnerability and learning to trust all over again. A beautiful story unfolds within the pages and captures you and takes you with it.
As always I love Lani’s style of writing and how she pulls you in and you become one with the pages. Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series is amazing! I highly recommend!

“It’s unpredictable, raw, emotional, and edgy- pure chaos contained in a beautiful package.”TJ Loves Books

“LJ Shen just wrote her best love story ever!” DD’s Boom Room

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They’re right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister’s ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.

They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I fucking dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

My Review of Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2)
by L.J. Shen
My Rating 4 Stars
Let’s hear it for “Dean Ruckus Cole”!!
Dean’s story is one with many plot twists, emotion and sexy as h*ll drama! Dean turned out to be more than I expected, he had true depth and more secrets than we could have possibly known.
Rosie, she is unexpected she has many sides to her, and those that know he try to protect her instead of letting this girl live her life on her terms.
I enjoyed this heated chemistry written book, that had me wondering at times just where these two would end up.
The ride of Dean and Rosie is one you must experience as there are pieces of their story that you must feel for yourself. The Ruckus journey was one I have anticipated, and wasn’t disappointed once I finished the book, and you surely won’t be either. LJ Shen delivers!

by Shelley Springfield & Emily Minton
My Rating 4.5 Stars

I love the writing style of these two authors and when they write together it’s incredible.
This is one of those stories that captures your heart from page one and holds it until the last.
Gypsy’s character is one that has her own demons that haunt her, her life has been a hard road with many ruts to pull herself through. Gypsy is one tough and feisty, yet inspiring heroine. Gypsy’s journey was one I fell in love with.
Gypsy and Chance what a story theirs is! Their chemistry is hot off the charts. I loved that this story had grit, drama and heartfelt moments that had me always wanting more! This book is so worth reading, and I highly recommend it!

Finding Fulfillment by Lynn Burke-

Finding Fulfillment
Found by Fate 3
Erotic Romance
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: May 22, 2017
Keywords: Erotic, Romance, BDSM, Novella, Series, Bondage
Jade Matthews may be young, but she knows what she wants in a man–someone mature and kinky, a man who shares her deepest desires to have her pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen and submissively compliant in the bedroom.
Archer Brennan aches to unleash his dark side on the too-young grocery bagger, with her pert pony tail and glossy lips that makes him yearn for a taste. With an ex-wife and a messy divorce threatening to destroy his pursuit of happiness, he binds himself to one rule — hands-off Jade’s tight body until his divorce settlement is final.
A submissive must obey her Dom, but some rules were meant to be broken, and when one misstep threatens the dominant lawyer’s life, will Jade defy Archer’s hands-off decree or lose the only man capable of fulfilling all of her dreams?

I jerked off after my late lunch, thinking I’d be more relaxed and in control once Jade arrived for my…little test. No such damn luck. Nancy rang to let me know Jade had arrived and I instantly went hard. I wanted to tell Nancy to just send her on in, but the gentleman in me wouldn’t allow such an action, hard-on or not.

Standing, I buttoned my suit coat to hide the bulge in my pants and headed for the office door. When I pulled it open, our gazes collided and my attention slid down her neck to where her pulse thrummed. Satisfaction coursed through me.


“Jade,” I smiled, knowing the lust simmering inside of me shone in my eyes. “Come on in.” I stepped back, gesturing her past me and breathing in the scent of snickerdoodles. My hand moved without thought to rest on her lower back as she walked into my office. Her breath caught, and a quick glance up into my face had me jerking my hand away.

Fuck. Can’t touch.

I cleared my throat and shut the door behind her. “You look amazing.”

Pink tinged her cheeks. “Thank you.”

“Why don’t you have a seat on the couch today?” I motioned toward the loveseat beneath my office’s lone window with its upward slanting blinds for privacy.

I sat in my office chair but swiveled to my right to face her.

Jade perched on the couch’s edge, knees together and hands folded on her lap.

I took my time drinking in the sight of her—barely there makeup, hair caressing her shoulders, naked lips, and that dress.

Goddamn, she’d never looked better. The color of her name, the dress wrapped snug around her, the cleavage of her pert breasts barely concealed by the deep V-neck. Stiff nipples, bare legs, and strappy tan heels…and if she followed my thoughts for our meeting, no panties.

My cock strained, hands shook.

Get a grip, man. You’re thirty-five years old, for Christ’s sake, not some teenage jerkoff who can’t control his shit.

“How am I supposed to keep my hands off you?” I murmured, tearing my attention from the darkness between her legs.

Her blush deepened as she shrugged.

I forced myself to settle in my chair. “Sit back, darling. Relax.”

She eased backward into the couch, but tension hitched her shoulders high.

I wanted the test I had in mind to reveal what I hoped it would, but being strung tight would hinder her response to me. “How was your week?”

“Long and boring, same as last week.” She sucked in her lower lip and released it, sending another jolt of lust straight to my cock. “I’ll admit, my nervousness over today probably made it worse.”

“What are you nervous about?”

“The meaning of your note. Your plan.” Her voice escaped as a whisper, and she swallowed. “Wondering if you’ll finally touch me beyond a mere brush of fingers.”

My hand flexed at the thought as my heart picked up pace. “More than anything, I want that exact thing.”

We stared at each other for a few long seconds, the sexual tension thick between us.

I needed to wait until Nancy left. “All in good time,” I finally said, needing to clear my throat. “For now, talk to me. Tell me about your hobbies. What you like to do for fun.”

Jade heaved a deep breath, her breasts rising and drawing my focus downward. Pebbled and begging for my teeth, her nipples pressed tight against the green material covering them.

“Talk to me, Jade,” I encouraged, returning my gaze to her face with a slight smirk which she returned.
A half hour flew by as we chatted, and the inner office ring of my phone startled me. I picked up. “Yes, Nancy?”

“If you don’t mind, I’m going to head out early for the day.”

“That’s fine. I’ll finish up with Miss Matthews here in a few minutes. Would you mind locking the front door on your way out?” I asked as always whenever she left before me.

She agreed and I hung up, turning back to Jade. Her brow furrowed, she played with the ties of her wrap dress.

“Jade.” She glanced up. “Close your eyes for me.”

She obeyed without hesitation, her brow smoothing, and my chest swelled with the trust she showed me.

“I’m going to tell you a story, and I want you to imagine it in your mind. Can you do that for me?”

Her plump lower lip disappeared inside her mouth again as she nodded.

The sound of the front door closing filtered through the blood rushing between my ears.

Time to play.
