Amie's Review of Torn by Alexis Noelle

Title: Torn
Series: Deathstalkers MC
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2018
Loyalty

That's what it's all about here.

I'd do anything for one of my brothers,
Even go with his old lady to a parent-teacher conference.
But when I see the sweet little number who's the teacher,
Suddenly, school's right up my alley.
She's innocent, naive, and sexy as Hell. 
Damn, I just want in her pants,
And to maybe teach her a thing or two.
And I'm not backing down,
I'll get to her.
But if she ever finds out the truth about our connection,
It'll sever the ties and ruin it all.
I'm just going to keep my mouth shut--
And all over her.


AMIE'S 3.5 STAR REVIEW
This is a 3.5ish read for me - I enjoyed it and have loved the series but this was a quick read and with all the drama that Becca brought to the series I feel it could have been much longer. It was intense , an easy read and a great plot. Storm and Becca have an instant connection yet she is kind of off limits to him being a sweet teacher and all. BUT of course for our enjoyment they do their push pull angsty thing and we get a great story out of it. Becca's brother drove me crazy but knowing about her life and the things she went through and the connection Storm had to that I can understand why he was that way. An MC story isn't complete without violence , suspense , danger and hotness !! We get all that and more.  

The loud crash jolts me out of bed and a few seconds later my mother comes running in the room. “Sweetheart you need to hide, there are people in the house.” Her voice is quiet but I can hear the fear in it. My stomach drops as my body freezes. “Now.” Her voice is a raised whisper. She points to my bedroom closet and I run trying to grab for her hand but she shoo’s me away. I open the door thanking God for once that my closet is such a disaster. I lay on the floor covering myself with any clothes I can. Mom quickly rushes over finishing the job for me. “No matter what, don’t make a sound.” She quietly shuts the door and I can hear my father’s voice downstairs. I can’t make out what he’s saying but he’s yelling at someone. There is a loud bang and my heart stops. That sounded like a gunshot but it couldn’t be, this can’t be happening right now. I lift on if the shirts just a little bit so I can see through the opening in between my door and the floor. I see mom working her way under my bed but I know I shove so much stuff under there, that there is probably no room. Heavy footsteps sound as my whole body goes rigid. The boots stop at the edge of my bed and I hear a stomach churning laugh before his hand appears and pulls my mother’s leg out from under the bed. I can hear her pleading with him to take whatever they want and go. I pray that he listens, and that whatever sound I heard my dad is still okay. He doesn’t say a word though. After a few more seconds another loud bang sounds and my mom falls to the floor. I clamp my hand over my mouth silently sobbing and praying that they don’t find me. My body is stiff from fear, and I’m scared to move because I don’t want him to find me. “Take anything that’s not nailed the fuck down but do it quick.” I hear him shout to whoever else must be in the house. He stands in my room for a minute before heading over to my dresser. “There ain’t much in here.” I hear the sound of my music box being picked up. My dad gave it to me on my last birthday. It crashes to the ground and I flinch from the noise. “All fucking junk.” The sound of the boots fades. I can hear crashing and things being thrown around as the men tear through my family home. My mom’s eyes are closed and I pray to god that she is just passed out. She can’t be gone. It feels like I sit in that closet for days listening to things banging and breaking. When the closet door opens, I scream.

Wendy's Review of In Bed with the Beast (Naughty Princess Club #2) by Tara Sivec





SYNOPSIS

A tale as old as time: she needs a place to stay, he's a grump with a secret and an extra room...can love find a way?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places - the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom?







REVIEWED BY WENDY
4 stars 
I am just loving this series by Tara Sivec. This contemporary fun retelling of the Disney princesses is awesome. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite so I was really really excited for In Bed with the Beast. And I was not disappointed. Belle and Vincent(Beast) were great. Their interactions and banter were fun and cute. I loved seeing their relationship progressed as the story went out. They brought out the best in each other. They were sizzling and delightful. I was captivated by these two. The relationship between Belle and Beast weren’t the only thing that made me love the book. Cindy and Ariel were a riot. They made the book that much more entertaining. They had me cracking up every time they made an appearance especially that Ariel. I love the friendship between the three women. It’s natural and real and fun. This was an awesome story and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It was passionate and engaging. I’m excited for Ariel and Eric’s story. Whenever those two are together, it is explosive. There is so much more than what we’ve gotten a glimpse of so I can’t wait. Overall, In Bed with the Beast is fantastic read!

Amy's Review of Darkest Hour by Bella Jewel




Title: Darkest Hour
Series: Iron Fury MC #3
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Romance
Release Date: February 14, 2018



Blurb

From the second you are born, the shaping begins.
Who you are.
Who you’ll become.
Where your life will lead.
What kind of heart you’ll have.
If you’ll be good, or bad.
From your very first breath, those around you influence everything about you.
I was influenced by the worst. By a monster. A cold hearted, soulless man.
But I got away.
I started fresh.
I reshaped myself. 
Only now, my past is catching up with me. 
My demons have returned.
And they’re back with a vengeance.
The only protection I have is a Motorcycle Club. 
I helped them. Now they’re helping me. 
With a large hit on my head, I’m hustled into the mountains with one very broody, very angry, very gorgeous biker.
He has a mission. A secret bigger than even mine. 
And he wants the blood of the monster after me.
He’s been assigned to protect me.
He gets on every nerve I have left.
The tension between us is high. 
And we’re stuck alone.
In the middle of the wilderness.
Things are about to get...interesting.

Darkest Hour by Bella Jewel
5 stars
Reviewed by Amy W.

When it comes to the Iron Fury MC, author Bella Jewel doesn’t hold back. In Darkest Hour, there’s plenty of drama along with some panty-melting hotness.

I enjoyed the way the story shifted between past and present in order to provide the foundation for Charlie’s character. It wouldn’t have been enough to say her father was awful; the flashbacks definitely conveyed his unique sense of nastiness.

With Charlie poised to seek revenge, she finds herself under the protection of the Iron Fury Motorcycle Club. It’s the only thing that stands between her and a huge bounty on her head. Tapped for protector duty is Koda, who is not all that thrilled to be stuck with a mouthy woman.

That dynamic, though, is what makes this such an incredible story. They might fuss and argue, but there is no way they can ignore the incredible attraction. As the storyline develops, Charlie and Koda will be pushed to the limits.

Some areas of the story are very dark, but they truly enhance the impact and enforce Charlie’s efforts to defeat her father. I am looking forward to reading more about the Iron Fury MC.

Amie's Review of The Sinister Silhouette by Alex Grayson ~ BOOK TOUR ~

Title: The Sinister Silhouette
Author: Alex Grayson
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: May 25, 2018
“Luca….”
She whispers my name at night, filling my dreams with her haunting beauty. Her tormented amber eyes
beg me for something I don’t understand, and her agonizing pain becomes my own.
For years, she’s come to me, calling my name.
For years, I’ve never known who she was.
Until now….

AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW
This story was chilling !! I was hooked by the synop and not at all disappointed. It was definitely a longer read than I expected but I really didn't mind a slower pace because there are a lot of clues to pick up on and many pieces to a twisted puzzle !! I normally sign on to read this author because she has a darker chilling side and I enjoy that a ton. This cover is amazing.

Luca and his twin Theo couldn't be more different. they may have the same look but if you really look at them you can see the difference. When it comes to their personalities you would never even know they were related !! Luca seems to be in control and on his way to success while Theo is a bit crazed and although he is a dad his lifestyle is anything but routine. For months Luca has been dreaming of this haunting silhouette and chilling voice of a woman. He honestly cannot figure out who she is and why she is coming to him. Without giving anything away this starts the whole story as to what happened to Luca and the story of Theo's wife and what she has to do with Luca's story. it is twisted and crazy. Many theories came and went as did my hopes and dreams of simple !! There are far too many pieces to put together and although some are apparent others may blow your mind !!
