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.

 

 

Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Book Description:

Published: January 19, 2014

He was my boss, my brother’s friend, a Widower, an ex-felon, and a man I’d seen casually with a handful of women. But he was everything that gripped me, both the good and the bad. Worst case scenario if things turned awkward between us, I could go somewhere else. I’d gotten over epic heartbreak before, one more wouldn’t kill me.

After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly… even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she’s ever met. He’s rude, impatient and doesn’t know how to tell time.

And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

But it was either the strip club or the tattoo shop.

… she should have chosen the strip club.

offers-headphones-jpgmaxheight138maxwidth207

This is a contemporary sexual,erotic, motorcycle club  romance with humor thrown in, and I usually don’t care for that combination but this book is a treasure. 

You have Iris, a twenty-four year old virgin who is as good as good gets. Her father, a motorcycle club member from way back left her and her mom and brother when she was fourteen. She had cancer at the time  and her Mom later died of cancer. She’s moved to Austin and is living with her stepbrother and he has gotten her a job with Dex at Pins and Needles, a tattoo shop. Dex, on the other hand, is crude, rude, violent,short-tempered and told to keep his hands off Iris.

The sexual chemistry between Iris, whom Dex calls “ritz”, and Dex is HOT and although Iris calls him all sorts of names in her head, she can’t stop thinking about him. Some of the names she calls him ar “dick”, “dickhead”, “your highness” and Charlie (because his first name is Charles).

She hates him from the start and he just can’t be bothered, but as time goes by and events happen to put Iris in severe jeopardy, Dex finds himself wanting her for his own and will do anything to protect her.

There is a happy ending after a lot of lies and misunderstandings and being threatened by a Croatian mob and the epilogue is wonderful. The author really tied up everything perfectly.

I had the audio version  and the narrator, Callie Dalton, did a fantastic job portraying the dry sense of humor of Iris which made the book a gem to listen to. If you like motorcycle club and romance – you need to give this one a try.

Ride Me Hard (Devil’s Host MC #1) by Shari Slade

Book Description:

Published: May 1, 2015

When a big scary biker shows up at Jimmy’s Diner fifteen minutes before the end of my shift, covered in tattoos and looking at me like I’m on the menu, I should flip the open sign to closed. But I don’t, because I’m too used to doing what I’ve been told. Too used to working and struggling and surviving to do anything different. A closed sign wouldn’t stop him anyway. He’s here to collect a debt. And I’m the only one left to pay.

Ride (Bayonet Scars #1) by J.C. Emery

Book Description:

Published: October 25, 2013

Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can’t take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.

Review –

I’m a sucker for a good motorcycle club erotic romance so when this one was offered free I couldn’t resist!

This story is basically Motorcycle Club meets the  Mafia.  It’s dark and edgy and I totally loved it.

Alex is the mafia princess with a twin brother and she trusted the wrong person and ends up being rescued from the clutches of the Mafia boys that wants her dead. She is taken away by a motorcycle gang cross-country to California to be kept safe by them and her Aunt, who is the wife of the President of the club. In reality, the Aunt is really  her mother. (long story)

Ryan, the man she becomes attracted to could sometimes  be a decent guy or a real a**hole and since he was trying to get Alex to hate him he treated her horribly, physically and mentally, and needed an a** kicking.

Their relationship finally becomes as important to Ryan as it is to Alex and  when Alex’s father sends henchman to California to kill her and those who stole her away, Ryan finally acts like a man and helps his club brothers take care of business.

The story ends with a lot left to the imagination but I’m sure it will be covered in the second book in the series, Thrash. Although it also is a standalone book about another couple, I’m fairly certain it will tie up the ends from the first book..

I loved the book because for an erotic romance it had it all. Sex, dirty talk, more sex, romance and of course handsome sexy guys on motorcycles.

Hawk’s Property (Insurgents MC #1) by Chiah Wilder

Book Description:

Published: October 26, 2015

From the first time Hawk saw her, he knew he wanted to do dirty things to her in his bed.

Hawk, the muscled, tatted, badass Vice President of the Insurgents Motorcycle Club, sees women as bed warmers, nothing more. He never stays with the same woman, and although there are plenty of women who want to be his old lady, he wants none of that.

He doesn’t date.
He doesn’t let chicks ride on the back of his bike.
He doesn’t fall in love.

And that suits him just fine until he meets her whose eyes light a fire in him. Problem is she’s not so easy to get into his bed. Hawk wants her. And when Hawk wants something he takes it.

Cara Minelli doesn’t want to go to the biker bar, but her friend talks her into it. Swearing off men since she caught her fiancé cheating on her right before her wedding, she has buried herself in her career not wanting a man in her life. Until she sees him. He is sexy, rough, crude, and oh so very wrong for her. So why can’t she stop thinking of all the nasty things he’ll do to her if she relents and lets him in her bed?

Then a vicious killer who has been strangling women in the area focuses on Cara. Police think bikers are involved. Can Cara set aside her trust issues and let Hawk into her life?

Hawk sees it as his job to protect what is his…and Cara is very much his even if she doesn’t know it yet. Cara keeps her heart guarded, but when danger comes calling, their lives collide. Hawk will stop at nothing to keep Cara safe and make her “Property of Hawk”.

The Insurgents MC series are standalone romance novels. Hawk’s Property is Book One in the series. This book contains violence, strong language, and steamy sexual scenes. HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

Review –

I’ve become a big fan of erotic romances involving motorcycle clubs and this is one of the best I’ve read. It is a bit predictable at times but that can be overlooked  because of the steamy sexual tension between Hawk and Cara. They come from difference worlds and she is a lawyer but love conquers all and in the end they have their HEA.

Great read.  Adult with explicit sex
