Wild Man by Kristen Ashley

I read the books in this series completely out of order, lol. I started off reading Mystery Man, then Motorcycle Man, and lastly Law Man, back to back a few months ago. I can’t believe it took me this long to pick up Wild Man, although after I finished Mystery Man, I didn’t care for Brock, I was all for Hawk beating him to a pulp, but then I read Law Man, and I saw him in a different light. The new light that was shed on his character in Mitch’s book got me curious, but not enough to pick this book up immediately. The title was what really made me cave and finally read this book. I wanted to know what made Brock Lucas a wild man when pretty much every man in this series was leaning towards the crazy side. I wanted to know what made him different. […]

Lights to My Siren by Lani Lynn Vale

I had read some of the reviews for Lights to My Siren before I read it, and while I understood where a lot of the reviewers with 3 stars and less were coming from I still felt like we were reading two different books because this book was so good! From beginning to end I was hooked. I loved the fact that Sebastian was a triple sexy (a Marine, firefighter, and VP of an MC) alpha-male that was a great father to the sweetest little boy. He was in all ways perfect to me. Not that Sebastian was looking, but he found his greatest partner in Baylee. While Baylee thought that her ADHD was a disease and something burdensome I saw it as something that made her extra unique. Her struggle with ADHD really educated me on the true meaning of the disorder. Yes, I could’ve googled it, but that would’ve […]

Tracker’s End by Chantal Fernando

It’s such a blessing to be writing this book review and to have been able to read it in advance because Tracker’s End was phenomenal! My goodness, I thought that Arrow’s Hell would’ve been my favorite out of this series, but I seriously think that this book right here has knocked it out the freaking park! We first meet Lana in Arrow’s Hell seeing as she’s the best friend of Anna, Arrow’s old lady, and in that introduction we also get to se the fireworks go off between Lana and Tracker. Why didn’t they get together then, you might ask? Well, during that time Tracker had an attachment to a very unpleasant leech that had hopes and dreams of becoming more than she was destined for and she was also being a complete witch to Lana whenever she felt the urge, at the time. Lol, get the picture?! Tracker was always […]

What is Reader Ruination?

Here’s what Reader Ruination means to me: You recently find out that one or more of your favorite go-to authors is coming out with a continuation to one or more of your favorite series, and/or is starting a new series that you know will be amazing because the author is amazing. So now, all you can think about is this book(s), and you finally realize that you have a good amount of time before the book hits amazon or whatever book outlet you use. With that realization, you try your hardest to either do a reread of the previous books of the series, or read books that are of the same caliber to this author’s work in hopes that time will fly and this new release will get to your hands quicker. Alas, that doesn’t work so now you’re stuck with picking up book after book, some of them sound […]

Dirty by A.C. Bextor

Oh my freaking goodness! Dirty cannot end like this!! But the fact that it did is an injustice to all of the reading society! Ugh!! Deep breath, woman! Before I start voicing my thoughts on Dirty by A.C. Bextor, lets talk about this cover. Um, Um, Um! Tommy you are one fine male specimen, goodness gracious I can just stare at this cover for hours, or I can just go to your profile on Facebook and perv on you there, but that’s a discussion for another time. It’s book review time… I was scared to read Dirty, and sadly, this reaction is not foreign to me. I get this way every time I pick up, or am blessed with the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy, of any of A.C. Bextor’s work. Her stories are always so raw and gut-wrenching that I’m scared of what emotions I will be put […]

Play Nice by L.P. Maxa

I’ve already said this before, but I have no problem saying it again, “Rock-n-Roll stories are not my thing!” But, now this is the new information, I have officially found the second author that has become the exception. I loved Play Nice from beginning to end, I seriously didn’t want it to end. To be completely honest I didn’t have high expectations, but I knew that it would be entertaining considering that this author was recommended to me by one of my favorite authors, Sasha Marshall author of the Guitar Face series. The story flowed extremely well, and the characters were really strong, you won’t find any weak links in this story. L.P. Maxa is definitely on my watch list. Everything I look for in a five-star read this book had it. The heroine was strong and had common sense, the hero was attentive and strong, the supporting characters did an amazing job […]

Sinful Intent by Chelle Bliss

Based off this rating, I would like to make it known that I didn’t hate nor did I love this book. My thoughts veer towards the fact that Sinful Intent, was an enjoyable read, it wasn’t really my cup of tea, so it was hard for me to connect to it. Sinful Intent is the second Chelle Bliss book that I’ve read, and I really hoped that my dislike of certain qualities of her writing was isolated to that first book, sadly it wasn’t. In no way am I slamming on the authors’ ability to story tell because this author can definitely tell a story, it’s just not done in a way that I enjoy reading. Morgan’s character was so bland to me. To be honest most of the characters, with the exception of the mothers, were bland to me, nothing unique stood out to me about them except that […]

Hayden’s Verse by A.C. Bextor

When I finished Ace’s Redemption I had no idea of what Hayden’s story could’ve been about. I have never been more shocked and surprised by a storyline like I have with Hayden’s Verse. I love the characters in this series, each book might be about a particular couple but I feel that each character in the group gets their fair share of the spotlight. Hayden’s character is so freaking complex. I admit, I thought that I knew what he was about based off what I’d read of him in Ace’s Redemption, but goodness was I wrong. I seriously felt ashamed of myself for judging him without ever wondering why he was the way he was. Even though I love Ace, I think that Hayden has taken that number one spot (although, when Travis’ story comes out my affections might change). Lacey’s character couldn’t have been more perfect! She was everything that […]

The Gamble by Kristen Ashley

The Gamble by Kristen Ashley can now officially be scratched off my TBR list, and I have to say this is one of the most raw and most annoying Kristen Ashley story that I have read to date. Matter of fact, scratch that, this is probably in the same league as Motorcycle Man in annoyance level. I hate to say this but I’ve been thinking this since the middle of the book. First off, I was in love with The Gamble as I began reading it, but it dwindled to a like when it got to the point where our heroine, Nina, got it in her head to leave our hero, Max. I guess that I was on board with this decision because I felt that something needed to happen and I didn’t care if this ended up being the action that needed to happen. But, sadly that feeling of like […]

Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

Finally, I was able to read Fighting Destiny! I loved Synthia’s character. Her stubbornness never got anyone hurt (which is always a plus in my opinion), and her type of stubborn (firm in her beliefs but willing to change for the benefit of others) was well suited with the world that this story took place in. Fighting Destiny started off perfectly! Everything about this book was perfect. I honestly couldn’t get enough of Syn and Ryder, they fit each other so perfectly (I’m going to see how many times I can use the word perfect…lol). As I was reading I was able to catch the authors inspiration behind certain characters, which was really cool for me. Ryder sort of reminded me of Jericho Barrons in Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series in the sense of their mysterious identity/background. Ryder portrayed himself one way but as you continue to read you start […]
