By: Julie Ann Walker
Published By: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from library, 321 Pages

RATING: 4.25 JAKE STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

He's the heartbreaker she left behind...

He Never Misses a Target

Jake "the Snake" Sommers earned his SEAL code name by striking quickly and quietly—and with lethal force. That's also how he broke Michelle Carter's heart. It was the only way to keep her safe—from himself. Four long years later, Jake is determined to get a second chance. But to steal back into Michelle's loving arms, Jake is going to have to prove he can take things slow. Real slow...

She Aims to Make Him Beg

Michelle Carter has never forgiven Jake for being so cliché as to "love her and leave her." But when her brother, head of the Black Knights elite ops agency, ticks off the wrong mobster, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in Jake's hands. No matter what they call him, this man is far from cold-blooded. And once he's wrapped around her heart, he'll never let her go...



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


I’m getting quite addicted to this series. The writing is very easy to read and for me this series is turning into a delicious hot-man-fest with a bit of action and love wins over the girl.

Jake ‘the Snake’ Sommers is said hot man, even if he dresses a bit in his down time like Magnum PI in his Hawaiian shirt enjoying a beer with his fellow hot man friends.

UNTIL!!

Assassins are lurking.

Woman and child needs guarding.

Secrets are revealed.

Love conquers all.

I have to say one scene in this book...the Columbian Neck Tie...oh that was not a good visual in my head.

GAH!

I don’t think I am ever gonna forget that scene.

Hell bent on vengeance villains and a bunch of lads you simply have to read more about is what makes up this series and I keep on coming back for more.

BOOK REVIEW - TRACKER'S END by CHANTAL FERNANDO - WIND DRAGONS MC # 3 - GALLERY BOOKS - BIKER ROMANCE

By: Chantal Fernando
Published By: Gallery Books
Released: Available Now
Details: Digital copy via NetGalley for honest review, 352 Pages

RATING: 4.25 TRACKER STARS!!

Blurb: Goodreads

The third in a sexy romance series from the bestselling author of Saxon and Toxic Girl about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

Tracker is everything I’ve ever wanted.

I see him. I’ve watched time change him.

I’ve been patient, but he still hasn’t noticed me. Not the way I want him to. The more time I spend with the MC, the more I understand.

When you want something, you have to take it. You have to fight for it.

And Tracker is more than worth fighting for…


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Suddenly he says, “I don’t think I’ve ever just enjoyed silence with a woman.”

I really enjoyed Tracker’s End, I am rather addicted to this MC series.

Tracker is simply gorgeous. He did have me scratching my head at one stage with his behavior, I was like dude, you need to chill and let the woman speaketh.

Rake...goodness me, we get to see more of his shenanigans and there was a particularly panty dropping scene with Tracker and Lana. I don’t think Rake is gonna let her live that one down.

The MC lads are all gorgeous in this series with their own hang ups and what not which makes a great MC read.

Faye definitely six years down the track has come into her own as the old lady of the Prez. She was so different to when she was in Dragon’s Lair.

I love seeing Talon pop up and there is another biker gang introduced.

I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

BOOK REVIEW - A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU by CLAUDIA GRAY - FIREBIRD # 1 - YA FANTASY - HARPER TEEN

By: Claudia Gray
Published By: Harper Teen
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from library, 357 Pages

RATING: 4 THEO & PAUL STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:
I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.



First of all I want to say, cover art NAILED IT!

Love it!

You can’t help but turn the book upside down and have a good look.

Secondly, fan of Claudia Gray. Love her Evernight series. Simply loved it.

I enjoyed this book and the whole idea of the parallel universes and the Firebird as the means to slip into a new one. I did admittedly get a little confused a few times with some of the theories and explanations of the parallel Pauls etc, especially when it came to the erm, sex scene and the whole which-Paul-and-how-much-the-other-would-know and ...GOOD LAWD!!

I kind of felt bad for Paul # 1 we shall call him, or was that Paul # 2?

Anyhoo, I loved Paul from Russia. I could have read him the whole book.

I like to note when I review, and I did have a bit of a plot chuckle and then more of a mortified plot *GASP* she-did-not-just-inner-monologue-that, moment.

Loyalist solider, you were a good boy running after the two Duchesses, but they are right beside each other and you nab the bratty younger one and leave the other one by herself. Admittedly it did leave the main character ( Duchess Marguerite) to get her nookie on and then inner monologue to my horror...

Endangered? Oh. By danger he means pregnancy. It’s not like it would be great for me to get pregnant right now in any dimension, but for the Grand Duchess Marguerite—intended to be the virgin bride of the Prince of Wales—it would be personally and politically disastrous. Fear quivers in my belly, but I tell myself it was only once.

Gahhhh!

Folkettes you can get pregnant with unprotected sex the first time. Just clarifying.



“They may have rigged the train with explosives. You must run to the forest.”

Cool, so Katya and Marguerite run. They flee to the forest.

But then shenanigans happen with a baddie and ...

His knife finds the traitor’s gut, and the loyalist grabs Katya in his arms as the dead man falls. He begins running with her back toward the train.

Loyalist soldier dude, what about that possible bomb? Oh and didn’t you forget Marguerite she is big sis and also royalty.

Hehehe.

I did work out something but then I got a big BAM did-not-work-that-out moment and I was so excited to get that twist.

I did enjoy this adventure of jumping into parallel universes and I am looking forward to more Theos and Pauls. The lads are so different but both so endearing.

Bring on Ten Thousand Skies Above You, and another brilliant piece of cover art.



Michelle


FLOVE the cover art!

BLOG TOUR - CRYSTAL KINGDOM by AMANDA HOCKING - KANIN CHRONICLES # 3 - YA FANTASY - PAN MACMILLAN








By: Amanda Hocking
Published By: Pan Macmillan
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from publisher for honest review, 422 Pages

RATING: 4.5 BRYN STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads
Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope.

Bryn Aven - unjustly charged with murder and treason - is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light… and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she’s ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holmes and the Trylle kingdom? One thing is certain: an epic battle is underway—and when it’s complete, nothing will ever be the same…

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

Things got hopping in this final installment. I really enjoyed the action side and the lurrvvve side was a slow burn but I was endeared to it and knew it was inevitable, just some emotional bridges to cross along the way.

Bryn and Konstantin get paired up for a fair bit of this book and I enjoyed having them partnered up, not by choice but by circumstance.

I really like Konstantin. Sure he did some shady, erm bad things in his past and I am not sure if I was that invested in why he did them, but he did, so here stands our bad boy in more ways than one.

But bad boy isn’t altogether bad, and I knew that, I could feel it early into the trilogy.

Ridley and Bryn spend a fair bit of this book apart, but when they get their mojo on the same page...

There are twists, a couple I could see coming, but for the most part I loved that I got little shocks and surprises. I enjoy getting those in a book.

There are villains and allies must be made and swords come out and Omte are about and Ogres and all good fantasy stuff is going on.

There are moments that will squeeze your heart tight and moments where you are cheering on Bryn who is being kickass and well... a cool chick.

Crystal Kingdom was a satisfying ending to the Kanin Chronicles. I am now looking forward to what Amanda will bring us next.

About BUILT:

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series, Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.


And don’t miss this sneak peek of BUILT! Check out the prologue here!

Prologue
 I met her at a bar.
She had a beer bottle in her hand even though she looked like she should be sipping champagne out of an expensive flute, and that inexplicably turned me on. She was pretty and looked completely out of place in the no-name bar sitting across from one of my longtime friends who also happened to be her long-lost brother. He was the reason she was here. In that split second that I laid my eyes on her I wanted to be the reason she stayed.
I knew it was rude and that the two of them needed some time together, some time to figure out what they were to each other now that she had blasted into his life unannounced. If I was a better friend I would have left them alone. As it was, I made my way over to the tiny table and sat down. I was covered in sawdust and had drywall mud caked in the hair on my head and on my face, but she didn’t flinch or bat an eyelash when I purposely broke up their party of two and placed myself as close to her as I could without actually touching her.
My buddy Rowdy St. James lifted his eyebrows at me as I stared at her while he introduced us. Sayer Cole. Even her name was elegant and sophisticated sounding. She was an enigma, this pretty woman that seemed like she should be in any place but this bar with the two of us. She’d showed up out of the blue a couple of months ago claiming to be Rowdy’s half sister, claiming that they shared a father, claiming that all she wanted was to be in his life and have some kind of family of her own. She looked too delicate to be that brave. Came across as way too proper to have said “fuck it all” and picked up her life to move it someplace unknown without being sure of her welcome. She looked like silk, but if my guess was right about her, it was silk wrapped around steel.
Luckily Rowdy was a good guy. After the shock of discovering he wasn’t alone in the world, and once he realized he had someone tied to him by blood forever and ever, he had warmed up to the idea of having a sister and appreciated that the sister was Sayer.
I liked Rowdy a lot. He was a stand-up guy and a good friend, but I had a feeling I was going to like his newly found big sister even more. In my usual tactless way I asked him without looking directly at the knockout blonde, “So you have a sister? A hot, classy sister?” A sister that was also a lawyer, so beautiful and smart.
I expected a giggle from her or an eye roll at the outlandish compliment, but what I got was a wide-eyed stare of disbelief as eyes bluer than anything I had ever seen on earth danced between me and her brother like she wasn’t sure what to do with herself or with my overt interest in her.
I thought that I had gone too far, pushed the beautiful stranger too far out of her comfort zone. I was a big guy and knew I looked far wilder and rougher than I actually was. I figured it might be too much for a woman already obviously out of her element and depth to take.
Instead, Sayer surprised me and I could see by the way he stiffened that she surprised Rowdy, too. While she wasn’t exactly overflowing with welcome and warmth, she did ask me about the current project I was working on after Rowdy explained I was a general contractor and had rebuilt the new tattoo shop he worked in. She seemed genuinely interested, and when I told her that my specialty was rehabbing old houses and giving them new life, her eyes practically glowed at me. I wanted to touch her to see if she felt as smooth and polished as she looked. I wanted to leave streaks of dirt on her perfect face to mark the fact that I had touched her, that she had let me touch her. It was a primal and visceral reaction that I couldn’t explain and I liked the way it felt. Liked the weight and heft of it in my blood even if I knew the feeling wasn’t likely to be returned.
She told me all about a fantastic but crumbling Victorian she had purchased that was falling down around her. She asked me for a business card and I saw Rowdy stiffen across the table. I sighed and rubbed a hand over my already messy hair. I watched her eyes follow the light cloud of dust that escaped the strands. I was great at my job, loved what I did, but I couldn’t do anything with her or for her without laying everything on the line. Especially not with Rowdy giving me the death glare from just a few feet away.
I dug the card out of my wallet, and when I handed it over our fingers touched. I saw her eyes widen and her lips part, just barely. She looked a little dazed when I grinned at her.
“You take that card, but understand that the man giving it to you has a past.”
She blinked at me and cleared her throat. “What kind of past?”
It wasn’t something I liked to tell a beautiful woman when I first met her. It was something I liked to work up to, liked to prove it was behind me, but with this one it seemed like I wouldn’t get that chance.
“I tell everyone that I do any kind of work for or that considers hiring me on for a project that I have a criminal history. I spent time locked up for a few years, and while I’m not proud of it I can’t deny it happened. I was a hotheaded kid and it got me in trouble, but I’m the best at what I do, so I hope that doesn’t discourage you from giving me a call.” Hopefully for more than some construction.
Usually I got a concerned frown followed by a hundred questions about what had led me to serving time. I got none of that from the stunning blonde. She tilted her head to the side and considered me silently for a long moment before reaching down and slipping my card in her purse. If anything, I could have sworn she was wearing a look of sympathy when she told me softly, “I see it every day from the inside. Sometimes the system simply gets it wrong.” A slight grin turned her mouth up at the corners, and I wanted to lean over and kiss it. “People make mistakes. Hopefully they learn from them.”
I don’t know that “wrong” was accurate in my case so much as misguided, but the complete lack of judgment or censure coming from her made me want to pull her into my arms and hold on to her even more. I had made a mistake, a huge one, one that I was forever going to have to carry around with me, but I had learned from it, was still learning from it. That kind of understanding from a total stranger was so rare, especially coming from someone in the legal field. I wasn’t accustomed to someone looking at me and seeing me, just me, not an ex-con loser after I explained where I had been. It was wildly refreshing and attractive. I couldn’t quite get a handle on what made the woman tick, but I would welcome any opportunity she gave me to figure it out. I found her outwardly flawless and pristine demeanor tempting to taint with my dirty hands and ways, and there was something about the way she watched me, the way she turned toward me like she was drawn to me, that made me think maybe I wasn’t alone in the inexplicable pull department.
Rowdy left and she stayed.
We had a couple more beers and talked some more about her house and what she wanted done with it. She already hired one contractor but felt like the guy was ripping her off. It happened a lot in the industry, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy was taking her for a ride. Spending time with her was easy. She was fun to talk to and really fun to look at. I really wanted to get my hands on her house and of course on her, and I felt like she was maybe, kind of, slightly leaning in the same direction when I made the mistake of asking her about her past.
I asked about where she had been before she found out about Rowdy and decided to move to Denver so that she could get to know him. I was curious what kind of life she had where she could leave everything behind and not be missed. Really I wanted to know if she had a boyfriend or husband stashed somewhere, but the simple inquiry must have touched a nerve. The next thing I knew she had paid out the tab for both of us and disappeared into the night. She went from glowing and bright to frigid and untouchable in the span of a heartbeat.
I figured I blew my shot by being too blunt, as always. I assumed she probably did have someone else in the picture and had been friendly and polite only because I was good friends with her brother. I thought I would never hear from her again and was baffled why the thought of that made my chest ache and my heart feel like it weighed two tons.
Imagine my surprise when she called me and hired me to renovate her house a week later without a bid, without a contract, without even knowing if I was half as good as I claimed to be.
Of course I accepted, but I knew once I was inside I would need to knock down and rearrange more than just the walls of the house, in order to get at something beautiful and lasting.

True Confessions of a Male Stripper by Jake Butler

In the most transparent way, his revelations shed light on what really goes on at his parties - the women, his services and more.

Author Bio



I was born in London and moved to Sydney about 11 years ago. I’m a corporate professional by day, dealing with some hugely high profile clients. I have been moonlighting as a male stripper/naked waiter for around 12 years. In terms of my writing, I’m very new indeed, having been encouraged to start by one of the very few people who know both sides of ‘Jake’. She told me that my stories needed to be shared, and pushed me until I started to blog. None of this would have happened without her support and sometimes not so subtle art of persuasion.


I literally started writing about two or three months ago, blogging initially and now writing. Things have gone insanely crazy in the last three or four weeks. I’m astounded by the level of interest that there appears to be in my stories and am working very hard on my first book right now.


My book will naturally be titled ‘True Confessions of a Male Stripper’. My aim is to be totally honest and as transparent as I can be about my life as a male stripper. I want to be entertaining whilst strictly charting a course of validity, honesty and openness. I’m delighted to say that at this stage of the process, I have not strayed from those initial, founding principles (and have no intentions of doing so down the track).

BOOK REVIEW - IN RIDES TROUBLE by JULIE ANN WALKER - BLACK KNIGHT INCS. # 2 - SOURCEBOOKS CASABLANCA - ADULT SUSPENSE ROMANCE

By: Julie Ann Walker
Published By: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from library , 311 Pages

RATING: 4.5 FRANK & ANGEL STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

Rebel with a Cause

Becky "Rebel" Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys-she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them.

Man with a Mission

Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank's way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within fifty feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it's just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back-whether she says she needs him or not.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I am gonna say it, this was soooo much better for me than Hell on Wheels. I enjoyed Hell on Wheels but In Rides Trouble was such a turn-around in the writing and plot.

I knew I was going to like Becky and Frank together.

Frank is so rawrrrr and Becky is a strong female lead. I loved where this story went and Julie still kept that easy read feel about it.

You have a bunch of Special Ops lads and the situations they get themselves into or out of, who are all so endearing .

I love a read like this as it is such an easy read and you want to escape into their lives.

I want to be Becky. She is a great female character. I can hear the music pumping loud inside the workshop as Becky works on the bikes.

I still love Ozzie.

Angel came more into the foreground in this instalment and I really enjoyed reading him.

Becky is one lucky girl living with these lads.

I am so looking forward to reading more in this series.

RATING: 5 DARK STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


Good golly Miss Molly, the shiz that went down in this installment.




Pepper is always going to thrill the reader with her mind.

She is gonna Google all that stuff that is going to horrify us and put it in her story and we are gonna read and go ...they-were-sick-son-of-a-bitches-back-in-the-day.

Another amazing installment in the Indebted series with true grit and sexiness woven through.

This is a series you read with a bowl of popcorn and your eyes wide open as you stuff it in your mouth and turn the pages knowing you are safe in your reading nook.

My mind is already thinking, what the hell is she gonna put me through in the last installment?

Pepper earns her stripes for dark romance.

What a bloody awesome Australian talent.

Buy it.

Read it.

I can’t spoil it.

I will leave you with this awesome quote.

“You can’t scare me anymore.” I held up my palm, shoving it in her face. “Blood doesn’t scare me. Threats don’t scare me. I know what you are and you’re just a weak, old woman who hides behind insanity like it’s some mystical power.”

Hell. Yeah. She be scary.



Michelle






FUNNY HOW LIFE plays practical jokes.
The past few days—that had to be a fucking joke, right?
No logical answer would make sense of what I’d seen, heard, and lived the past seventy-two hours.
My sister.
My best friend and twin.
This was what she’d been living with? This was how she’d been treated?
This was what she wanted to return to?
Motherfucking why? Why would she ever want to return to this insanity?
We’d been raised in a broken home, chained to an empire that absorbed us right from birth. But we were kept safe, warm, and loved. We grew up together. We shared everything.
But now…I had no fucking clue who my sister was.
But then she came to me.
A woman I never knew existed.
The most stunning creature I’d ever seen.
Only she didn’t come to me on feet or wings of an angel. She rolled into my life and demanded my help.
And for better or for worse…
I helped her.

“LET ME GO!”

Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.
I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.
“Take me back!”
He can’t be dead!
Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.
That’s exactly what it means.
I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.
I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.
It’s always been that way.
My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?
He’s not dead!
I swallowed a sob.
Please don’t be dead…
I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”
Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”
He’s not dead!
I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”
Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…
Please let my twin stay alive…
Let all of this be a nightmare!
I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.
“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”
Cut will die.
He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.
I refuse to believe they’re dead.
“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.
It can’t end like this!
“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”
