REVIEW: Ties That Bind By L. Wilder

SYNOPSIS

Trust. 
Loyalty.
Family.
 

These are the ties that bind. As a Ruthless Sinner, I live by those words—all the brothers do. We’re family, our bonds stronger than blood, and as their sergeant at arms, my loyalty has never wavered—until the night they brought her to the clubhouse. 

The red-headed beauty didn’t belong there.
It was her brother who’d betrayed us, but there she was, atoning for his sins. 

I didn’t want to hurt her.

I wanted to protect her, claim her as my own, but as secrets started to unfold, I was left with an impossible choice.

The ties that bind often come at a price—some more costly than others. 

This is Hawk’s story, book one of L Wilder’s new Ruthless Sinnerscrossover series. Ties That Bind is a standalone MC romance with a group of bikers who will take you on a hell of a ride. They’re foul-mouthed, possessive alphas who will stop at nothing to protect their women. No cheating and a HEA.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * * 

This was am amazing read!! 

I love the way L. Wilder creates these MC worlds and how each club has a different set of alpha males that make you fall for them all. 

Hawk never knew he could fall in love until a chance meeting with a girl who was on the wrong side of Club business comes into his life. Then he sees himself wanting the more needing the more. He wantsntonprooce that him and his brothers are not all bad they way she has seen. 

Delilah has a sever case of wrong place wrong time that puts her in the eyesight and big lonely room of the local Ruthless Sinners MC club house. It’s there she gets a crash course that what she thinks is Lust at first sight (that comes at the world’s worst possible time) is actually so much more. 

And first impressions are not always the best, there is more to a book than its cover. Watcher this larger than life biker try and prove his worth, and erase his less than Steller first impression has her weak in the knees. 

But changing her opinion of his brothers and what his club stands for is easier said than done for Hawk and watching this whole story and romance unfold just gave me tingles all over. I Binge read this book in 4.5 hours. I just could not put it down. I am so excited to see which of the brothers is next and how this club compares to the other worlds she has created!!

RELEASE BLITZ: Back In The Saddle By Peyton Banks

Not everyone gets a second chance. 

Parker Brooks was a legendary bull rider. He had become a household name until he suffered a career-ending knee injury. Now he’s back home working his family’s ranch alongside his brothers. 

A night out for a celebration flipped his world upside down. A certain young woman who had walked away from him without a word, or an explanation, was working the bar. 

Maddison King was the only woman he’d been ready to give his heart to. 

She’d been his everything, and then she’d up and vanished.  

Now she was back. 

He’d thought he’d gotten over her, but one look at her luscious curves and killer smile had him realizing otherwise. She’s older, more mature, and too damn sexy for her own good. 

There was no denying the attraction between them. It was just like old times. 

He deserved to know why she’d packed up and left. She couldn’t run from him forever. 

When secrets are revealed, Parker and Maddison’s world explodes. Will they be able to survive the past to build a future?

Author Bio:

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.

Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

RELEASE BLITZ: Highland Conquest By Heather McCollum

Cain Sinclair has a plan. In order to finally bring peace to his clan, he will wed the young female chief of their greatest enemy. Only problem: capturing her and forcing her back to Sinclair castle doesn’t exactly make her want to say yes. Ella Sutherland may be clever, passionate, and shockingly beautiful, but what she isn’t is willing.

Every attempt Cain makes to woo her seems to backfire on him. A gift? The kitten practically claws his eyes out. A competitive game of chess? Even when he wins, he loses. It seems the only time the two ever see eye to eye is when they’re heating up Cain’s bed. Still, the only thing Ella truly wants is the one thing he cannot offer her: freedom.

But when Cain discovers she’s been harboring a secret—one that could threaten both clans’ very existence—he’ll have to decide between peace for the Sinclairs or the woman who’s captured his heart.

REVIEW: Road To Fire By Maria Luis

SYNOPSIS

From the author of the Blood Duet, comes a gripping, dark royal romance series. 

“I’m not scared of you.”
I meet her gaze. “You should be.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.

Spy.
Defender of the Crown.

To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.

And then she appears.

Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to bus tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.

“Hire me,” she begs.

We’re on opposite sides of this war. Enemies from the start.

Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.

Savage.
Ruthless.
A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.

And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “I could use you.”

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * * 

I am just Raw from the pure emotion that has driven this read. I have been on pins and needles for this book and was not in the slightest disappointed. I don’t even know where to begin as a lotto the parts that made me want to just crawl inside this book will give away too much.

If you are an avid reader of my reviews you will know I have special place in my heart for the dark and brooding man who self identifies as a “Broken” man. And Boy Howdy does Saxon fit that to a T. There is just so much about him and how he conducts himself and hold himself that makes you feel for him on many different levels. 

Isla is one of my top female characters, easily in the top 3 because she stays true to her cause but knows when to let her heart do the real talking and walking. She is a true definition of a strong female lead and I love the growth and change that came with her and the development that was gradual, you were rooting for her from the very start.

The ground work that was laid for the next instalments of this series just made this book hangover even worse, because I got an ARC which means my wait for book 2 is longer than those getting to it on release day. It means that the book hangover with this one is real and I need something soft and fluffy to get me through the next 24 hours.

This is my high recommendation for 2020! If you love Spies, and mystery and a good old fashion dirty good time, please check this one out, you will not be disappointed!!

REVIEW: Nixon by Samantha Whiskey

SYNOPSIS

NIXON 

I’m the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL because I know how to read the field.

I control the plays—and my life—with absolute precision.

Until Liberty Jones delivers the ultimate hit to my blind side with a story about two pink lines.

The beautiful, free-spirited brunette has starred in my dreams since she disappeared after our wild weekend in Vegas, but I’ve been burned before. No way in hell am I falling for that line again.

But Liberty is the complete opposite of my ex—she’s smart, compassionate, sexy as hell, and couldn’t care less about my money or status.

In fact, she’s leaving as soon as she finishes her doctorate.
And the baby she’s planning to raise alone? It’s mine—and I want them both.

She certainly doesn’t need me, but she can’t deny our sizzling chemistry.

I can’t deny that I’m losing my infamous control and falling for her.

For the first time in my life, I’m not the only one calling the plays, and one snap decision could crush our happily ever after.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * * 

As soon as this trailer was leaked I knew I was going to love it, then to see it was a character we have already met and gotten love in 1 (kinda of 2) books, it made this read even more amazing and I was so glad I got one of the first peeks at it.

I love Nixon that while he is twin to Nathan Noble who I have come to love in the Sharks and Reapers series, he is his own person with his own dreams and love of a special sport. He is also shown to want to memorialize their lost brother in his own way. You get to see a bit more about what happened to that brother and how is really did effect Nixon and how he has approached his professional career, as well as how he feels his family views him.

I love Liberty for Nixon because while they have something in their lives that will tie them together for minimum 18 years, she does not want to lose that independence she has created and was not looking for love. She was no looking and it just happened with a mixture of the love of Football, and a lot of alcohol that created the perfect storm for this strong woman to see that independence doesn’t mean having to go it alone.

In true Samantha Whiskey fashion the female lead is just that a lead, she is not a wishy washy person, she is strong and amazing and a character that you love from the start to the end and watching their story grow and change.

I love the ground work in this book for the future books in the series, you know who is coming, for the most part, and you can guess who is getting a book, whose you want to see and see their story. But it does not take away from Nixon and Liberty in the slightest. Actually is grown their story and solidifies the bonds they have with their friends. (PS I want to read Romans Story like yesterday!)

As much as I love Samanthas books, the story lines, the characters and the families she builds in them I have never given her a 5 star (I don’t think, if I did it would be Axel), but I am giving her a 5 Star on this book because she is building a great series and a great new family here… And I don’t even like football, I am Canadian and a Hockey Girl through and through (RIP Colby Cave)

I recommend this book to any one and everyone! You don’t even have to know Nathan Noble and his story to understand what is going on with Nixon, he really is a one of a kind character.

ROAD TO FIRE

By Maria Luis

Release Date: April 30

It’s dark, it’s gritty, and there’s a pretty good chance it’s the royal romance you never even realized that you wanted. Your new anti-hero obsession is almost here—do you think you can handle Saxon Priest?

“I’m not scared of you.”

I meet her gaze. “You should be.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.

Spy.

Defender of the Crown.

To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.

And then she appears.

Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to buss tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.

RELEASE BLITZ: Making The Call By Amanda Shelley

MAKING THE CALL
By Amanda Shelley
Release Date: April 14

Dani

As a bestselling romance author, most assume my life’s glamorous, filled with combustible chemistry, and most of all, romance. Ha! I can only wish. With a deadline looming, I’ve escaped to my family’s cabin on Anderson Island to free myself from distractions. My plan’s great, until a man, who could pass as a cover model on one of my books, comes to my rescue. Is there chemistry? Sure. Is he everything I’d look for in a guy? Absolutely. But will my career be at risk if I give into my desire?

Luke

For a player, women line up outside the locker room. For coaches, we’re lucky to get in the game. As the youngest NFL coach in the league, I live, eat, breathe, and even sleep football. To gear up for this season, I return to my home on Anderson Island for a much-needed break. When Dani literally crashes into my life, my mind’s suddenly on the sexy brunette with a sailors mouth, rather than my team’s next play. She has me dusting off another playbook entirely, making me wonder, did I make the right call?
