Review: Unfinished Business by Carina Adams

The Bastards of Boston live in a world most don't understand. They follow their own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents they protect, and the people they couldn't save.

As president of the Bastards MC, Robert Doyle is the man behind it all. It’s his responsibility to keep his club safe, to be the smartest man in the room, and be ten steps ahead of everyone. He’d give everything he had, and sell his soul to the devil, to protect the ones he loves.

Until Rocker comes face-to-face with the pain he thought he’d buried. Old wounds are ripped open. Revenge consumes him. Once again he’s the teenager desperate to avenge his daughter’s murder and nothing else matters.

He calls me his angel, but the halo I wear caught fire a long time ago. There is no line I won’t cross, no law I won’t break. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I’ll happily burn.

When past and present collide, we’re in for one hell of a bumpy ride.

 5 'It's when love and hate collide.' Stars

Passionate, gritty, and emotionally gripping! Carina Adams returns to her writing roots and delivers  one hell a phenomenal story! MC baby!!! I knew Rocker's story would rock my world, but what I didn't realize was that it would turn it upside down- over and over again. Holy emotionally crippling baggage, batman! That was one INTENSE ride! And because it's Rocker I'd take that ride over and over again *wink*

'You can run with the lies from your past. But you can't hide from the truth forever.'

Unfinished Business is a book that will stick with you long after you've read the last page. The journey that Rocker and Cris have been on; emotionally, physically, mentally- is definitely one that will stick with you. Abuse, heart-ache, many obstacles to endure and overcome, while they've survived, they're not left without scars and reminders of the battles they've fought and won.

'The need to protect her was pure instinct. One damaged person shielding another. I'd move heaven and hell to make sure she was safe.'

This book is one that I couldn't read fast enough, yet couldn't read slow enough. Absorbed and completely drawn into the story, I breathed and lived every emotional facet of the story line. Carina Adams has outdone herself with his book and has blown my mind! Hands down my top fave work of hers to date!

A must read of 2017! It's powerful and raw! Don't miss out on this Bastards of Boston MC!!

Review: Sapphire by JA Low

An unconventional love is tested to its limits in this completely immersive dark ménage suspense, for fans of JL Perry and Pepper Winters.

Mateo is used to being in the spotlight, he craves it in everything he does . . . except when it comes to his love life - that is firmly in the closet.

Tomas shuns the spotlight, the one he was born into, he wants nothing to do with it or his high-flying family who now reject him for his choices in love.

But Tomas' and Mateo's carefully constructed lives are turned inside out when they discover a beautiful, battered woman on their doorstep. The woman with the sapphire eyes has no memory of who she is or how she got there. Can they help her remember before the men who are after her find her first?

The first standalone book in the BRATVA JEWELS series from the author of the DIRTY TEXAS books, JA Low.

Deliciously addictive and dark, JA Low shines in the darkness of her new Bratva Jewels series while staying true and authentic to her erotic style that her readers have come to expect!

Hot from cover to cover, prepare to have your panties, twisted, lit and wrung over and over again in this suspenseful, unconventional love affair! The first in the Bratva Jewels series offers a little bit of everything for the romance lover. Sizzle, swoon, and fall head over heels in love with Mateo and Tomas as they fall for Zoe. From the highest of highs to the darkest pits of plot hell, its fabulous, addictive, and I could not put the book down. GAH!

There's so much depth and so many layers, and complexities within Sapphire, it's all so astounding and brilliant! Told from multiple alternating points of view, be prepared to swoon and be crushed all in one fell swoop. Bratva, my dear. Bratva. They're there and they're watching you!

Review: Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-that instant chemistry that renders you weak in the knees. That is, until a night out brings her face to face with the dangerously sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her must be dangerous. She has no idea that he belongs to another. That he's forbidden.

Whoa Jodi Ellen Malpas has done it again! I didn’t think she could make me love a character more than Jesse Ward from This Man but she sure as hell has gone and done it. I might even like Jack a tad bit more than Jesse.....maybe!

Now, Jodi starts this book off with a little bit of a warning for those readers who are sensitive on some subject matters but if you’re like me any book that comes with a warning (even a little one) I just have to have. The warning just makes me want to read it So I was rubbing my hands together feeling giddy as I was diving into this one.

Annie & Jack meet by chance one night and their chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS. I mean fog up your kindle and grab yourself a fan off the charts. Their attraction to one another is palpable. They both feel it right away and I as a reader felt it, but neither one is interested in acting on it, in fact it is forbidden for either of them to act upon it. Now, you know anything that is forbidden just makes you want it more right?

“He is just to f**king handsome for his own good. And, Undoubtedly, my good, too.”

This story will have you questioning your morals and asking yourself could this really happen? Is there really that one soulmate out there for everyone? What would you do to be with the one you love? What are you willing to give up to be with the one you love? Those are all valid questions for this story.

Your emotions will be all over the place. (mine certainly were) BUT my heart was always in one place right from the start.

Forbidden has humor, sex, great characters, drama and love. All the things that make a great story. Jodi did not hold anything back writing this one, she brought out all of the feelings and conflict and it was nice to read a story where nothing was sugarcoated.

Phenomenal love story and definitely one of my favorites!
