Kristie has finally graduated from college. With a new boyfriend in tow, Gray’s rival, Armand, and moving back into her mother’s house, it feels as if life might finally fall back into place. But Gray, the love of her life and her cousin by marriage, happens to return after hiding out of town. He’s been freed of being suspected of a murder he didn’t commit and is now looking to reclaim glory in his gang, the Devil’s Advocates, once again.

But both Kristie and Gray are in for surprises. People aren’t always what they seem. Kristie struggles to work through her relationship problems with Armand while Gray struggles to fall back into a position of power in the life he left behind. As the two of them are drawn closer together, both must choose the life they want – with each other, or alone. No matter what they end up picking, the risks in their lives can end up costing the two of them everything.

Review –

I can’t believe that Kristie would fall for Armand. He’s a slimy fake and I feel he’s just using her to get back at Gray.

Speaking of Gray, things don’t go so well for him in Book Two. While he was on the run from being falsely accused of a hit and run, Armand is trying to take over the Devil’s Advocates MC club and working for the Infernos. 

The Infernos  beat Gray almost to death and later Armand tries again. Both times it’s close but he able to take the reign of the club again and convince Kristie that he does love her.

He even proposes marriage, she accepts and the wedding goes off without a hitch, but while getting into the cab to head to the airport to start their honeymoon Kristie is shot twice by a masked assailant and is near death when the book ends.

Gray has promised Kristie he is done with the MC gang life but since Armand is still lurking out there I have a feeling that promise will go by the wayside.

Not sure if I’ll read books three and four, but probably will down the road.

Review –

You know I’m a sucker for a motorcycle club/bad biker boy/contemporary romance and when I ran across the blurb for this one AND it was free, I couldn’t resist.

It’s the typical good girl/bad boy contemporary romance BUT with a twist. Kristie and Gray are cousins by marriage and they are hugely attracted to one another. The story deals with Gray’s uncle  trying to get him to change his ways and his dealings with a motorcycle gang and Kristie coming home for a college break , meeting her new step-father and his nephew, Gray. There is also a policeman, John, who becomes attracted to Kristie and uses her to get the goods on Gray so he can be arrested for a hit and run/murder that he did not commit and a motorcycle club member, Armand, whose intentions are anything but honorable, when it comes to Gray.

There is of course a few sex scenes but they are on the mild side(compared to some) and by the end of the book Gray has told Kristie he was just using her, but in reality he doesn’t want to involve her anymore deeply into his chaos  and so he skips town and Kristie starts dating Armand. (I also gagged when I read that because he is so slimy )If anyone is using Kristie, it’s Armand.

All in all, a great read. Looking forward to Book Two.

Good Men (Book Two) by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 18, 2017

Format: E-Book

There was no blurb given for this book. It’s just a repeat of the one used for Book One.  You would think the author would want to let her readers know what to expect in the second book.

Review –

I found this one a bit on the boring side, although there was a lot of action, (bedroom sex, fast get-a-ways on a motorcycle, and confronting Kevin and Liam’s old girlfriend at the Den(motorcycle club))

I felt it was too short and that this whole series should have been written as one book. BUT, then I wouldn’t have to buy books three and four and I’m too invested not to continue the series.

Passable read.

 

Good Men (Book 1) by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 22, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

“Say, yes,” his husky voice coaxed, lips gliding against the column of her throat.  As his lips ghosted over her skin, his hands inched the hem of her skirt higher and higher . . .

They weren’t what they seemed. They weren’t who they claimed to be. They were something so much more. Trapped in a loveless marriage by a man harboring too many dark secrets to count, Aspen discovers her very life is in danger. She tries to walk away, but it’s never that simple. Nothing ever is.

Kevin and Liam are the only two men that can keep her safe. They are the only two men that leave her heart racing and her body charged with an electrical current. They are bad for her, but she can’t get enough. They have a secret life, and she’s been tossed into the middle of it. She thought they were there to save her. Maybe . . . she was wrong.

Review –

Aspen married a man twenty years her senior and at first things were fine, but five years later he’s hitting her, sexually ignoring her, and because she saw something she shouldn’t, he’s threatening her life.

She seeks the help of two handsome tattooed attorneys on getting a divorce but finds it’s not going to be easy. Allan, her husband, is in a “mob” and has many influential friends.

She is as immediately drawn to the strong bodied, caring men as they are  to her. Their lives are much different now from their early years being brought up in a motorcycle club, but it’s that knowledge that will help them now help Aspen.

Great read and the sexual chemistry between the attorneys and Aspen was off the charts.

Looking forward to reading Book Two.

Reaper’s Legacy (Reapers MC #2) by Joanna Wylde

Book Description:

Published: January 28, 2014

Format: Audio/Audible

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.

Review –

This is the  seconding the Reaper’s Motorcycle Club series and  mixes a super-hot bad guy, a struggling young single mother, and sex that blisters the imagination, resulting in a thrill ride as raw as it is well written. When Sophie was a teen, she lost her virginity to Zach Barrett, the boy she thought she loved. She also suffered the mortification of having his hot stepbrother, Ruger, catch them in the act. She got pregnant, and Zach turned out to be a deadbeat dad. Eight years later, Ruger swoops in to rescue Sophie and her son from poverty, with the caveat that she must accept the rules of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, who will be her new family. Stubborn Sophie resists the club and lady-killer Ruger at every turn, but their mutual attraction is beyond her control. Filled with rough language, no-holds-barred sex, the rumblings of a biker war, and threats from the past, this fast-paced novel entertains while setting up the next book in the series, Devil’s Game, which deals with Hunter and Emily.

Excellent read.

Vexed (Iron Bulls #4) by Phoenyx Slaughter

Book Description:

Published: April 4, 2016

Format: E-Book

Falling in love will only leave you vexed.

Recent high school graduate, Athena Vale might seem bubbly and uncomplicated, but she has big plans and even bigger dreams, she’s only ever shared with her best friend, Karina. Athena’s strict upbringing has left her curious about taking a walk on the wild side—just once. And she knows exactly who she wants to go wild with.

President of the Iron Bulls MC, Reed “Romeo” Crownover has no shortage of women willing to entertain him. But these days, there’s only one girl on his mind —Athena. When she shows up at his clubhouse on the night of her eighteenth birthday, he decides it’s time to work her out of his system.

But one night turns into two, two turns into three, and soon the no-strings fun turns into something more passionate than either of them expected. An intense romance neither of them have ever experienced or knew they wanted.

She’s half his age.

He doesn’t fit in her world.

She’s leaving for Los Angeles to start a new life in a few days.

Their connection was vexed from the start.

Vexed is the fourth novella in the Iron Bulls MC series. Although Romeo and Athena make brief appearances in the first three books, Vexed can be read as a stand-alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger.

Review –

I am loving the Iron Bulls MC books with their hot ass bikers, dirty mouths and off the charts sexy scenes and Vexed did not disappoint!

This is Athena and Romeo’s story and if you like a bit of taboo in your story with the whole older guy / younger girl theme then you’ll love this book! Romeo just happens to be the President of the Iron Bulls MC and is a total bad ass and Athena is a spitfire who just graduated high school and together you get a crazy love story that runs hot and heavy.

In the previous books in this series come  to the conclusion that Romeo is a rude disgusting pig well let’s just say that the author definitely throws you for a loop on that one . ROMEO IS STILL THE BADASS, SEXY AS SIN GUY WE MET IN THE PREVIOUS STORIES….BUT UNDERNEATH HE IS SO MUCH MORE….THERE BEHIND THE SEXY BODY LIES A HEART. HE TRIES TO KEEP IT HIDDEN, UNTIL HE FINALLY GETS HIS HANDS ON ATHENA!!! PURE INNOCENT YOUNGER THAN HIM ATHENA.

Athena! I loved her! She’s so smart, sassy, sweet, and clueless! I love how she’s determined to reach her goals and won’t let a man stand in her way. When she realizes she’s not prepared for the career she wants, she takes a step back and regroups.
The way the two of them come together with mutual love and respect, was beautiful! I liked that when both characters made a mistake, they owned up to it and tried to fix it. Very refreshing!

I also liked that this story was so much different than the previous stories (Karina and Dante’s). I often find that series books have a theme when it comes to their couples and often become predictable but with Athena and Romeo’s story (other than the age thing), I found their relationship totally different and fresh and was nothing like that of Dante and Karina’s. 

Great read.

Entwined (Iron Bulls MC #3) by Phoenyx Slaughter

Book Description:

Published: February 2, 2016

Format: E-Book

In Entwined, the third book in the Iron Bulls MC series, shocking secrets and desires are revealed. Can Dante and Karina’s passionate bond survive or will they be torn apart?

Review –

Not much of a blurb on this one and it’s a bit misleading.

Karina and Dante’s relationship keeps getting stronger and he’s trying to get her half sister’s info from Tucker, Karina’s father. He says the half sister doesn’t know anything about Karina and that’s she’s “wild child” and could be a bad influence of her. Dante doesn’t seem too concerned which alerts me to BIG TROUBLE ahead.

Dante wants to push Karina’s boundaries so enlisted Luck to introduce her to bondage. She likes it but they don’t get far because she enters subspace so fast that she couldn’t vocalize her safe word if she needed to.

Tucker missed Karin’s high school graduation and it affects her more than she thought. Also, Athena turns eighteen that day so Romeo is chomping at the bit to get his hands on her.

No cliffhanger this time. Just an anticipated meeting with Kadence, the half-sister. But Dante remembers Tucker’s warning about her wildness and her mother’s involvement with a rival MC and decides that when the meeting happens it will be on his turf so he can keep Karina safe.

Great read.

Disconnect (Iron Bulls MC #2) by Phoenyx Slaughter

Book Description:

Published: August, 2015

Format: E-Book

Karina
Love and hate aren’t that far apart. Once I loved Logan.
Now he’s kidnapped me, and he’s determined to tell me secrets I don’t want to know.

Dante
Once I get my baby girl back, Logan’s going to ground. I just have to find the disloyal bastard first.Then it’s time to admit that what Karina and I have is more than sex.

What secrets is Logan hiding? Why does he risk his life to abduct an old girlfriend from Dante, the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Iron Bulls MC? Who’s telling the truth? Who’s lying?
Who can Karina Trust?

In Disconnect, the second book in the thrilling Iron Bulls Motorcycle Club series, shocking secrets are exposed. Lives are forever changed.

Can the passionate bond of two fucked-up people survive the whirlwind trying to tear them apart?

Review –

We are thrown into the Iron Bulls MC lifestyle and the story pickups with Dante searching for Karina who was kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend, Logan/Hemi. He tells her that her father is the one who made him break up with her and but doesn’t know whether to believe him.  Dante manages to rescue her and Logan gets away.
Dante and Karina’s relationship progresses and stronger feelings are developed. Even with the age difference they work. What began as revenge on her ex-boyfriend changed Karina’s life. Dante is the enforcer for the MC and allowing someone to matter doesn’t factor into his lifestyle, but Karina gets under his skin and all he can think about is his “little girl.” Growing up by herself, Karina depended on her intelligence to survive and graduating high school to attend college is important to her, but so is Dante.
Karina finds out that she has a half-sister due to an affair her Dad had with her mother while on one of his long haul jobs. Her half-sister is part of his “real’ family.

I really enjoyed the secondary characters and learning more about them. They play an important role and you begin to picture the various storylines the author is weaving. Hopefully, we will learn more about Romeo and Luck in books to come.

Asunder (Iron Bulls MC #1) by Phoenyx Slaughter

Book Description:

Published: 2015

Format: Free Digital Book

Karina:
For most of my life I thought Logan and I were meant to be together. We grew up next door to each other. Neither of us had happy homes, but together we found a sort of peace. He was only three years older than me, but when you’re a child, that’s a lot. I looked up to him. Loved him with everything I had.

He kept me safe. Protected me. Eventually I gave him everything. My heart, my love, my virginity. He disappeared without a word. When I finally found him, he said I couldn’t be part of his life anymore.
He broke my heart.

Then I met Dante, and the perfect plan to get even with Logan began to form in my mind. Dante is older, dark, dangerous, and the Sargent-at-Arms of the Iron Bulls MC. The same MC Logan joined when he left me.

Dante:
Karina Rivers was supposed to be a one-time afternoon distraction. I’m way too old and twisted for someone as innocent as her.
I want her anyway. She doesn’t realize she has the power to tear this MC apart.

Review –

I love a good MC contemporary romance and the author, Phoenyx Slaughter, really delivers in this book.

Karina is more than a little upset with Logan for breaking up with her the way he did so she has a scheme to make him jealous. She plans to hook up with Dante, a much older and rougher man in the same motorcycle club as Logan.

She doesn’t have long to wait because Logan walks in on her and Dante in a very compromising situation that has to deal with a pool table in the MC clubhouse. Logan doesn’t give her the huge jealous reaction she was looking for, instead, he just seemed concerned that she was there, period!

What started out as a scheme to make Logan jealous has become secondary once she gets to know thirty-four year old Dante and soon he feels more for Karina than just a casual lay. Soon she’s living with Dante.

They have a very unique but strange (she calls him “Daddy”, which makes me cringe ever time she does) relationship and he’s very protective of her and wants what’s best for her.

All this time Logan is seething and finally kidnaps Karina but she calls Dante but it goes straight to  voicemail. Will he be able to get to her in time?  END   Talk about a cliffhanger, so naturally I had to buy the next in the series and will report on it later.

 

 

Rough to Ride by Justine Elvira

Book Description:

Published: 2014

Format: Free Digital Short Story

This isn’t a full-length biker novel. You aren’t going to get a love story, or an MC story with a beginning, middle, and end. This is a short story. 10,000+ words of a hot, sexy biker, and the woman he meets stranded on the road. It’s sexy, lustful, and HOT. It’s the fifteen-minute quickie every woman needs. So get on the back of Maverick’s bike, and join him and Trixie on their sexy encounter.

*Recommended for 17+ for mature themes and content.

Review –

Melanie is a girl who likes to change things up or else she gets bored. She’s been with Johnny for eight years and she thinks he is losing interest because he isn’t touching her as he usually does and she has to do something about it.

She goes for a ride in a an area where there is nothing in sight for miles. Her car breaks down and her cell phone is dead. She gets out of the car and sits on the hood to cool off. She can’t help it if the white sun dress she’s wearing is low-cut and that the hem rides up.

After a while she hears the rumble of a motorcycle and Maverick rides up (she doesn’t know his name at this point) and after very little talking and telling him her name is Trixie, he has sex with her (not intercourse, use your imagination). He tells her he wants to take her back to his clubhouse and have actual sex with her and that’s what they do, numerous times. Then all hell breaks loose and there are gun shots and Maverick has to go attend to business, as he is President of the MC club. That’s when we find out that Melanie AND Johnny (who was Maverick ) were role-playing and it worked. Their togetherness is saved and they are not bored with each other any longer.

I loved it. Very hot and has a MC rider, what else could you want?
