Ravage

As president of the Untamed Sons MC, I'm no stranger to pain, but three years ago Sasha Montgomery broke my heart and put another black mark against my soul. Even the mention of her name is enough to bring my demons out to play. I still don't know what happened, but what I do know is she walked out on me, the club, and the future we were working towards without a backwards glance. I should have known she wouldn't stay gone.

Sasha

Leaving Rav was the hardest decision I've ever had to make, but I didn’t have a choice. Staying and facing my past wasn't an option. I suffered through hell, but I'm stronger than I've ever been, at least I was until my daughter got sick. Now, the only person left who might be able to save her is her father.

Only, I have no idea who it is. Ravage, or his brother, Sin.

*Warning : Contains adult content, reading age 18 +. Graphic violence and dark emotional scenes that may trigger some readers.

 

Gritty, raw and super emotional! With the first book in her brand new Untamed Sins MC series Jessica Ames takes us to the streets of London and to the heart of a powerful MC President as his world explodes around him. The characters are easy to connect with, the emotion is high and the passion is taught. I really enjoyed their story and can’t wait for the next book after the exciting snippet at the end. NOTE: May trigger some readers.

Tyler “Ravage” Jenkins is the epitome of a haunted man. The love of his life took off with no explanation three years ago and the pain of his loss has turned him into a hardened man. Now she’s back, and he can’t even stand to look at her face.

Sasha Montgomery is an injured soul. She had her world ripped out from under her at no fault of her own and had to leave the love of her life behind. She never would have returned to the town of her heartbreak if it wasn’t for the new love of her life … her very ill daughter. She needs to bare her nerves of steal and go to the father for help … only trouble is, she doesn’t know if it’s Ravage or his little brother Sin.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a gritty MC who blatantly take the law into their own hands without a second thought. There’s turmoil in this story line but also a whole lot of love and heart. I’m looking forward to Nox!

EXCERPT
As I push the button for a white coffee with sugar, I hear a
voice behind me.
“Sasha.”
Even after all this time, even after all the hurt, he has the power to make the
apex between my legs throb with anticipation. Slowly, I turn from the machine
and come face to face with Rav. My heart twitches as I take him in. He looks
the same as he did when I saw him at the compound, but he doesn’t look like my
Tyler, not anymore. He’s bigger, brawnier and wears a permanent scowl etched
onto his handsome face. His worn and battered kutte fits him like it’s moulded
to his frame, the ‘President’ patch on the front a stark reminder of the man he
is. Regret surges through me, followed by remorse. I shouldn’t have let things
get this far.
“Ty…” I breathe his name, trying to recapture my equilibrium. No one else can
knock me off target like him. He still has the ability to bring me to my knees.
He can still stir my desire and make me want him, even when he’s snarling at
me.
Today, his long dark hair is loose around his shoulders, which accentuates that
beard he’s wearing. He looks wild. It’s a good look on him.
“Ravage,” he growls. “I earned that name and you’ll use it, like everyone else
does.”
And just like that ice fills my veins and my desire washes away, because his
words cut me to the bone. Once, I was the only person allowed to call him
Tyler. Once, I knew everything there was to know about him. Now, he’s treating
me no better than a club bunny or an outsider, and fuck, does that hurt.

* Review * CUTTER’S CLAIM by Monique MoreauCutter's Claim by Monique Moreau
Series: The Demon Squad MC #3
on September 18, 2020
Buy on Amazon
Goodreads
four-half-stars

Who needs more than bikes and willing women? Not Cutter. Until he meets Greta, a former biker princess who turned her back on club life. She challenges him every step of the way, and Cutter doesn't tolerate disobedience.

Greta lives by one rule: No Bikers. She didn't escape her father's MC and build a new life for herself just to be brought down by a dirty biker. Not even a hot, domineering man like Cutter could change her mind.

Cutter is ready to play dirty. In their battle of wills, he begins to master her deepest desires. Can she find the inner strength to submit to him? Meanwhile, a danger from the past lurks in the shadows—ready to pounce.

Cutter's Claim is a steamy, standalone bad boy biker romance with plenty of heat. Looking to ride in the fast lane? Rev it up with one click.

Warning: This book comes with plenty of heat and a hint of the taboo! Recommended only for mature readers.

 

Her sassy defiance really does it for him! With book two in her Demon Squad MC series Monique Moreau turns up the heat in Cutter and Greta’s story! The connection between the two is powerful and as they wade their way through the drama surrounding them, they just can’t resist each other.

Greta is a rock star of a character. She had Sage’s back in book one and showed herself to be strong and willing to take on the world when it came to someone she cares about. She didn’t work so hard to escape and prosper after the life her father’s MC taught her as a child to now suddenly put her under the thumb of yet another biker man.

Cutter is super fun. He’s loyal to a fault and watching this player fall for one woman is gold. Only she swears up and down she won’t land with a biker … even if his domineering ways push all her sensual buttons just right!

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys watching an MC fall for their old lady one biker at a time. The brotherhood is strong and endearing.

It's her choice to play his game. If she says yes, there will be more on the line than just her pleasure.

Zoey Parker has a three-step plan for revenge. First, gain entrance to the ultra-exclusive, upscale sex club, Phoenix. Second, act out her wildest fantasy in front of powerful old rivals, proving that they didn't break her. Third, disappear and never return. The only kink in her plan? Rhys Harrington, the owner of Phoenix and the one man she needs to stay away from...

Rhys' high-end clients pay extravagant amounts to watch his stars indulge their desires. Rhys' only rule? Watch, don't touch. But one look at Zoey and Rhys decides to participate in the show himself. And when an undeniable passion ignites between them, Rhys knows he wants more. Except Zoey is determined to run... and he is determined to find out why.

When Rhys discovers Zoey's secret, he shocks her by offering his protection... and a no-strings-attached relationship. But Zoey knows there will be more on the line than just her pleasure. Because Rhys' sizzling touch doesn't only capture her body, it also commands her heart.

 

Steamy and delightful! With the first book in her brand new Phoenix series Stacey Kennedy brings on the heat with an emotional story line when a plot for revenge turns into more than was bargained for. I loved this story and look forward to more to come in the series!

Zoey Parker takes matters into her own hands in a vary unorthodox way in order to seek revenge on a wrong done to her that changed her life forever. Her secrets come back to bite her when her subterfuge is uncovered and a powerful man is unhappy that he was used … until he learns her story and then it’s game over.

Rhys Harrington is a powerful and accomplished man, but he doesn’t like secrets. When he learns what propelled Zoey to hide her true intentions, he sets out to help her find comfort in the life and passion she has to give, even if it’s only short term.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an emotional read with dark currents below the surface and lots of passionate give and take. Looking forward to the next in the series!

five-stars

Can the leading man win his costume designer’s heart—or will
their happily ever after crash and burn
like something straight out of a Hollywood tragedy?

Chase Wright
Hollywood’s golden boy.
Way hotter than he has any right to be.
And more cocky than all movie stars-combined.

He was just the impatient ass she was supposed to sew into the superhero costume. Getting to know him was never part of her plan. Starting to like him wasn’t, either. Giving him way too much of herself? Potential disaster. Especially when his next role crashes against her deep-seated vulnerabilities.

Melody Hunte
Daughter of rock royalty.
Assistant costume designer extraordinaire.
Possibly the woman of his dreams … before he ruined everything.

All he wanted was to be taken seriously as an actor—to be seen as more than a pretty-boy “movie star.” The audition was forgotten before it even ended. It didn’t mean anything. But as it turns out, Melody does mean something. She’s everything. She’s golden. Now all he has to do is fix the giant mess he made before he loses her for good.

 

Love when she least expected it! With book 3 in her much loved The Hunte Family series Arell Rivers delights her readers with Melody’s story. She’s Braxton’s daughter and we’ve always known she would be special and getting to know her and her love of creation is so much fun. I really enjoy this family.

Melody is a strong and independent character. She doesn’t want to use her father’s stardom to get a leg up in anything, so she’s happy to turn her back on things she doesn’t earn all on her own. Meeting Chase and discovering he’s more than just the boy next door turned super star is life changing.

Chase is fun to get to know. He’s lived his jetsetting lifestyle perfectly happily for awhile but when Melody comes onto his radar and makes him enjoy slowing down and appreciating the little things again it’s awe inspiring.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves the background of a famous family and seeing each offspring go forth and find their forever love.

Getting served divorce papers was not how I planned spending New Year’s Day.

I probably shouldn’t have gone to my favorite bar and gotten wasted trying to drown my sorrows.
I definitely shouldn’t have spent the night passed out in the bed of the bartender’s daughter, Gigi.

And the absolute last thing I should have done was let my guard down and start having fun. Now I’m thinking of her all the time… fantasizing about the things I want to do to Gigi.

I’m in the middle of the best hockey season of my life. I need my head in the game and my focus on the playoffs – not playing house with the gorgeous bartender who makes me feel more alive than I have in years.

Finding someone new so soon after a failed marriage isn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done.

But it just might be too late. I’ve been checked hard into the boards, right off my skates, and I’m not only spinning out of control…

I might just be falling in love all over again.

  Heartache turns into all he ever wanted! With book four in her always enjoyable Ice Kings hockey series Stacey Lynn brings us Sebastian’s story as the playoffs are heating up just as his marriage is crumbling around him. The characters are easy to like and the emotional depth to their story is spot on. Really enjoyed and am looking forward to more in the series!

Sebastian has our heart the moment things start to fall down around him. He’s been trying to be strong and supportive for so long, and when it’s no longer enough he’s down for the count. Who can blame him for hitting the bottle a bit? He doesn’t know it’s going to change his world forever though.

Georgia AKA Gigi is adorable. She’s all sass and heart and when she sees the guy she’s been crushing on ever since she laid eyes on him over a year ago is hurting, she reaches out to try to help. He might not want to talk about his problems, but she’s a soft landing spot when he falls.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with lots of humor and heart mixed in. The players are close friends and their significant others add a fun dimension.

rpt:

Another set of drinks arrive at our table, served by a pair of small hands, with a tiny little broken heart tattoo on a ring finger and dark purple nail polish.

“Thanks, Gigi,” I say, lifting my head and grinning at her.

She smirks at me. “No problem, hotshot. Dad wanted me to give you these but says it’s last call.”

“Damn,” Jason groans. “I didn’t realize it was so late.”

“You can take off. I’m good.”

“You sure?”

“Yeah.”

He turns to Gigi who’s taken our empties and is starting to walk away.

I try. I try really hard to not let my gaze drop to her short, cut-off sweat shorts, to the length of her legs beneath them. The shape of her calves or to notice the dark red polish on her toenails.

I fail.

Miserably.

There’s something so damn attractive about her petite size.

I grip my new beer bottle harder and take a healthy swig.

“Hey Gigi,” Jason calls out. “Keep this loser company for me so he doesn’t get shit-faced before practice tomorrow?”

“Me?” She’s turned, gaze bouncing from me to Jason and she frowns. “You need my help?”

“No—”

“Yes—” Jason says at the exact time I disagree.

She smirks at Jason. “Seems to me he doesn’t need it.”

“Sometimes this asshole doesn’t know what he needs.” He slaps the table and slides out, holding out his arm in a gesture for Gigi to take his spot.

“Jason—”

He shrugs and holds out his fist. “I’ll pay the tab. You get home safely, yeah?”

“Yeah,” I grumble and return his fist pump.

“And you’ll thank me for this someday, too.”

I watch him go, frowning.

What the fuck does that mean?

“I can pretend to sit here until he leaves if you want to be alone.”

Her voice does something to me. Like a bug is happily leaping in my gut when she looks down at me, all that teal hair and new nose ring and tattoo peeking out from the wide collar of her sweatshirt.

It’s the collar I’m noticing. And the tattoo.

Not the thin, white strap of her bra.

Shit.

“You can sit. Please. You want Jason’s last beer?”

“Nah.” Her nose crinkles and the soft light above the bar flints on her nose ring. I quickly look away as she slides in. “I’ve never acquired the taste for beer. No matter what kind it is, it always tastes like wet cardboard.”

“You know what cardboard tastes like?”

“Yeah. Like beer.” She grins.

I grin back.

This girl is funny. Well-traveled.

Divorced. Cute. And fun.

The exact kind of temptation I do not need in my life right now. Yet as I sit across from her, taking in every little nuance about her like the freckle on the back of her hand, that broken heart tattoo… I can’t for the life of me think of an excuse to leave.

About the Book

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.

But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.

One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.

Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.

The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.

***

The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.

First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.

Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.

Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.

At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!

Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

A slow burn, second-chance rom com!

She broke his heart ten years ago.

Now he's back -- and her new boss.

And she might still be semi in love with him.

But that’s no problem, right? They can keep it professional.

Until her grandmother gets involved.

She’s thrilled to think that Whitney and Cam are still in love. And invites him to move in with her…and Whitney.

Of course, Whitney can handle that too. Yeah, everything is fine. Just fine.

Until Cam makes it clear that he’s all in.

Having him back is very sweet, but can she really have it all? Or will it all crumble around her?

  A reunion of first loves, a cast of close friends/family and sweets galore … what more could you ask for in a romance? With the fourth book in her always scintillating Hot Cakes series Erin Nicholas brings together two power players for the reunion we’ve all been waiting for in SEMI-SWEET ON YOU. It was definitely a slow burn reunion, but the connections between friends and family throughout held a reader’s attention easily. Looking forward to more in the series!

Camden McCaffery is a really down-to-earth character in this book. He was more arrogant and sure of himself in previous stories, but being humbled by the opportunity to possible reunite with his only love is good for him. He shows us a softer side … and I loved it!

Whitney Lancaster is one of those characters that makes you want to reach into the pages and shake her once in awhile because she hesitates when all she’s ever dreamed of is right in front of her for the taking. It was heartwarming to watch her start to understand the dynamic of what true love can look like.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a steamy romance mixed with a sweet cast of friends, families and happily ever afters.

Excerpt:

He leaned in, close enough that she could feel his breath on her lips when he said, “Let me kiss you.”

Oh damn. She wanted that. She wanted it so much. She was weak.

“I—” she started.

“The tea is getting cold!” Didi bellowed from the kitchen.

Whitney and Cam stilled. Then she felt him sigh. But he didn’t pull back. “You going to let me do this or not?”

He was already practically kissing her. When his lips moved as he spoke, they brushed hers ever so lightly. His body heat surrounded her. She swore she could feel his heartbeat pounding. Or maybe that was hers.

They both clearly wanted this. She certainly wasn’t pushing him away or stepping back. But the only actual connection was his hand on her face. And their mingling breaths.

Clearly he was going to insist that she make this decision. He wasn’t going to just sweep her up and kiss the hell out of her before she could protest and then let the chemistry take over.

“Whit,” he said, his voice low and rough. “Push me back or pull me closer.”

She slid her hands up to his chest, not sure until the last moment if she was going to fist his shirt and pull him in or push him away.

Cam, however, didn’t look surprised when she pushed.

He let go and stepped back though. He didn’t seem angry or even frustrated. It seemed that he’d been expecting her reaction actually.

“Okay,” he finally said.

She wet her lips. “Thanks,” she said, hoarsely. And she meant it. She appreciated that he was giving her these choices. Kind of.

It would be a lot easier to just climb him like a tree and give in to everything zipping between them if he’d just back her up against the wall, seal his mouth over hers, and start running his big hands over her body. Then she could pretend she was just caught up in the moment and enjoy the hell out of it without actually admitting she wanted any of that.

Which he knew.

She could see it.

He knew that she wanted him, but that she didn’t want to admit it.

So, of course, he was going to make her confess before he did anything more.

“In case you’ve forgotten, I’m very stubborn,” he said.

Whitney gave him a nod. “I remember.”

“And something you should know about me and the past ten years,” he said, holding her gaze steadily, “I’ve also gotten very used to winning. “

That actually made her heart trip and her inner muscles clench.

See, she should really feel trepidation at that implied promise from him. But she didn’t.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” she said, trying desperately not to act excited about the idea of him trying again and again to get close to her.

He looked at her for a long moment and a thought flickered through her mind—he knows.

* Release Blast * KANE by Sawyer Bennett

 

Kane (Arizona Vengeance, Book #8)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 15, 2020

 

Synopsis:
Are you ready for Kane Bellan’s story?

I have a problem.

Potential problem?

I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how it always starts?—and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue—she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers which keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.

It feels like the game just went into overtime and I’m on the verge of either the biggest win or most disappointing loss of my life. And losing is never an option.

Are you ready for Kane Bellan’s story?

I have a problem.

Potential problem?

I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how it always starts?—and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue—she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers which keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.

An exhilarating friends-to-lovers match up! With book eight in her always endearing Arizona Vengeance series Sawyer Bennett brings the awe factor with KANE’s story. He’s a professional hockey player on the rise, she’s a highly anticipated travel blogger … they’ve been best friends for years, but a life-altering mishap calls the future into place and makes them have to face up to the more than friendly love they each have been hiding.

Kane Bellan is adorable! He’s focused and intent on the ice, but sweet and comforting with Mollie. I really loved watching this side of him come to life.

Mollie Callister brings the wow factor of having someone you can truly be vulnerable with to the forefront in this book. She’s strong and able on her own, but when the occasion calls for it she knows she has open arms waiting for her to fall into.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves hockey romance with a whole lot of heart. A close-knit group of teammates and friends make for a great back drop as player after player finds their one true love.

Two Broadway actresses, one starring role, and a kiss that might turn rivals…into lovers.

Sophie Rindell has dreamed of performing on Broadway since she was a little girl. But after more than ten years of auditioning, she’s still waiting tables and sleeping on a friend’s couch while she waits for her big break. When she lands an audition for a new musical called It’s in Her Kiss, she’s sure this is the one. Not only is she auditioning for the lead, but it’s a queer role, the role of a lifetime for Sophie.

Julia Vega has been working on Broadway for years now, but she hasn’t landed a starring role…yet. When she meets Sophie at the audition for It’s in Her Kiss, she senses a kindred spirit. They’re both talented and driven, but unlike Sophie, who’s been out since high school, Jules is still coming to terms with her sexuality. This role—if she lands it—could help define more than her career.

As their rivalry heats up, Jules and Sophie fight an attraction that blazes hotter than the spotlight. When the curtain rises on opening night, love might take center stage.

 

Sweet temptation holds all the cards! With book two in her Midnight in Manhattan series Rachel Lacey brings a familiar face to life as Jules takes center stage. Fans of the first book in the series will recognize Jules who adopted kittens from Josie in that book. This book will be a particular draw to fans of Broadway because the story line delves deeply into the production lifestyle. It wasn’t my favorite book from this author, but it was steadily paced and entertaining.

Jules Vega drove me nuts. She’s trying to reach her dreams on stage at the same time that she’s on the verge of accepting her newly realized bisexual lifestyle, but she’s burying her head in the sand so hard that she’s about to let life pass her by. I could sympathize with her fear and anxiety … it just felt like she was being unfair to Sophie too much for my liking.

Sophie Rindell is confident in her self, her talent and her attraction to Jules. She has been living openly as a lesbian for more years than she can count, and has been burned in the past by indecisive partners.

I recommend this book to fans of Broadway and lesbian romance who enjoy an emotional roller coaster on the way towards that HEA.
