My Review

“My rage controlled me. I wanted to inflict as much pain as I could. Misery and blood fueled me. To cause it and to see it. I wanted to inhale his pain. I wanted to draw it into my soul and breathe through it. All I lived for right then was his torment. It would match my own raging storm.”

“Every part of me fell under his spell as he consumed me. There was no turning back from this.”

Boy oh boy do I love the biker romances that Nina Levine writes. Nina Levine gives us stories that only hit the ground running, but aren’t afraid to be alpha, intense and at times gritty. Yes, she pulls out all the stops and leaves us begging and pleading for more.

Told from dual points of view, Hyde’s Absolution follows the story of Hyde and Monroe. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I have been waiting on pins and needles for Hyde’s story. And his story was worth the wait. Hyde is anything but perfect. He’s done things he’s not proud of and made some big mistakes along the way. Things aren’t always what they seem and Hyde has always been taking care of what is his….Monroe is looking for love in all the wrong places and the moment she decides to give up, Hyde enters her life. He is bossy, possessive, the total bad boy package. He is the total opposite of what she normally goes for, but she can’t stay away. She’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame. It takes a special woman to hang with the men that Nina Levine creates and all I’m gonna is say is that Monroe definitely gives as good as she gets.

Hyde’s Absolution is a fast paced and exciting read. The story sucks you in from the very first page and has you burning quickly through the pages. From the characters to the story-line to the oh so sexy moments, this book has it all. With twists and turns and danger along the way, Hyde’s Absolution is not to be missed!

READ AN EXCERPT FROM HYDE’S ABSOLUTION

I tore my attention from Hyde and gave it back to Tatum when she said, “I’ll call you tomorrow.”

Hyde’s presence had pretty much wiped all coherent thought from my mind, so I simply nodded and murmured, “Okay.”

As she and Nitro walked away from us, Hyde moved closer. His scent almost hypnotised me, if that was even possible. Looking down at me, he said, “What are you drinking?” The husky tone of his voice was like the final nail in my coffin. He could lead me down the path to sin with that voice.

“A cosmo please.”

He turned to the waiting bartender and ordered drinks before shifting his gaze back to me. His body was so damn close it almost pressed against mine. His eyes dropped to my chest. “You weren’t made to be subtle, were you, sugar?”

“Can’t say that word’s in my vocabulary, no.” The way he was devouring my body told me I’d made the best decision when I bought the black dress I wore tonight. Knee length with a plunging neckline and accentuated with a belt around my waist, it clung to every curve I had. My girls were up and proudly out, just the way I liked them. I mean, if you had it, flaunt it, right? And I’d had the red in my hair touched up that afternoon. It hung in lazy vivid red curls to just below my breasts. I wasn’t sure which part of me he thought wasn’t subtle, but I guessed it had something to do with my dress by the way he seemed unable to draw his gaze from my body.

Finally he found his way back up to my face. The heat flashing in his eyes shot a round of lust through my veins. Good God, this man, though. I wondered if he had any idea of the storm he caused within me. “Don’t ever add it.” If what he said didn’t make my legs sway a little, the forceful, gravelly way he said it did.

The bartender placed our drinks on the counter, distracting us from each other. Hyde dropped some cash on the bar, took a mouthful of his whisky and looked back at me while I got down as much of my drink as I could in one mouthful. God knew, I needed it. I could stand my ground with any man, but Hyde had a way of catching me off guard.

“You calm down after that thing about owing me money this morning?” And there he went, flipping my feelings about him on their head.

I fixed him with a look that let him know I wasn’t impressed. “I didn’t have anything to calm down from.”

“You seemed all worked up about it.”

I threw some more of my cocktail down my throat. “I wasn’t.” But I was getting there now, that was for sure.

He drank some more whisky, keeping his eyes steady on mine. “Okay.”

Okay? Oh no he didn’t. He didn’t get to end a conversation with that bullshit. “Okay? Seriously, you’re going to end with that?”

“It seemed pointless to argue.”

I finished my drink and placed the empty glass down with some force. Sliding off my stool, I said, “We weren’t arguing. I was simply telling you like it was.”

“Yeah, I’ve picked that up about you.”

My eyes practically popped out of their sockets. “Picked up what about me?”

“That you like to tell men like it is.”

“I do not! You just have this way of pushing my buttons. I feel like it’s you, not me.”

His lips twitched. “Sugar, if I knew which buttons I was pushing, I’d push them some more. I never said I didn’t like the way you told me how it was.”

I snatched my bag off the bar. I needed a moment to get my thoughts under control. In the space of seconds I’d switched from wanting him to wanting to smack him to wanting him again. My mind needed a break from the whiplash. I took a step away from the bar and said, “I’ll have another cosmo.”

Without waiting for his response, I headed in the direction of the ladies room. I’d almost made it there when a hand slid around my waist and I was pushed up against the wall in the dark hallway. A hard body pushed against mine as the hand around my waist slid down to settle on my ass and warm breath whispered across my cheek. “My cock likes that attitude of yours. Surprised the fuck outta me, but I can’t deny I want more of it.”

The proof of his statement ground against me, sparking need all over me. Every inch of my skin blazed with desire. I gripped his shirt with both hands and found his eyes. “You and I weren’t made for each other, Hyde.”

“I’m not saying we were.”

My body went to war with my mind. It fought me kicking and screaming, desperate for what he was offering, but I didn’t want to surrender. “So what’s the point of starting something?”

He pushed his cock harder against me. “I came here against better judgement tonight. Nitro told me you’d be here and I came because I couldn’t, for the fucking life of me, get you out of my head. I want my hands on those curves of yours and my dick as far inside you as you can take it.”

Release Blitz with Review: One Taste of Angel (Iron Norsemen MC, #1) by Violetta Rand

Posted on

ONE TASTE OF ANGEL by Violetta Rand

SMP Swerve

Publication Date: May 30, 2017

eBook ISBN: 9781250147813; Price: $3.99

“Riveting, gritty cast of characters! I was captivated by this intimate glimpse into the volatile MC world. Violetta Rand’s ability to portray the essence of true love is enjoyable. Great read!” -USA Today Bestselling Author D.L. Roan

Their love was the stuff of Shakespeare – two star-crossed lovers from rival MC’s, divided by their families’ bloody history, but fate has given Eagle and Serafina a second chance. Can the biker and the stripper find their redemption in Violetta Rand’s sexy standalone romance, One Taste of Angel?

Eagle
I’ve bled for my club. Taken four bullets. Buried eight brothers in six years. Screwed a hundred women. And only loved one. The one I lost. But there’s something about Serafina that reminds me of just exactly what was taken from me. Not just because I can’t resist a damsel in distress.

Serafina
To Eagle, I’m dead. Murdered and cremated, my ashes interred at the local cemetery. Part of a past I left long ago to save his life. Seeing him now, touching him again makes me weak, even if he doesn’t recognize the woman I’ve become. Since my escape from Holly Beach five years ago, I’ve lived by my own rules. And no matter how much I love Eagle, he’s not going to break those rules.

My Review

“Few reach a moment in life when they seriously consider whether this world is worth taking another breath for. That place  where pleasure and pain meet. Where you realize love and hate are the same thing. Where your life plays out in slow motion inside your head and you wonder: if you could change one thing, would it make a difference?”

Violetta Rand is a brand new author to me, and when I read the synopsis of One Taste of Angel, I just knew I had to check this book out. Told from dual points of view, One Taste of Angel follows the story of Eagle and Serafina. Eagle is a devoted member to his MC club. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his brothers. The last few years have found Eagle just going through the motions. The loss of his only love forever plaguing him….that is until he meets Serafina. The connection to Serafina is intense and doesn’t make any sense to him. He doesn’t understand the pull that feels, but finds it hard to stay away….Serafina had her reasons for escaping her past. As far as Eagle is considered Angel is dead and buried. Serafina went to great lengths to protect Eagle and never thought that she would see him again. However, fate had other plans in mind. Fate has made these two lovers cross paths once again. What will happen when Eagle learns the truth about Serafina??? You’ll just have to pick this book up and see for yourself.

Overall, I found this book to be a pretty enjoyable read. I’m always, always, always on the lookout for a good MC read and love checking out new authors. One Taste of Angel hit all the marks for a good MC read. It had action and some suspense. That being said, I do like for my MC books to be a bit more intense. For me, the darker, more dangerous and grittier, the better.

I thought this story had an intriguing plot with a god twist. I thought the characters were interesting and I enjoyed learning about Serafina and her motivations for her actions. I liked Eagle’s devotion not only to his woman, but to his club. Together, I thought that Serafina and Eagle had a great connection and I enjoyed seeing them together.

One Taste of Angel is a quick and easy read. I think this series has a lot of good potential and I’m definitely interested in seeing where it will go next.

Excerpt

Eagle

“You owe me,” I say as I close the distance between us. “I’ll take a kiss as payment.” Serafina looks lost, but she doesn’t resist when I reach her and cup her face between my hands, pulling her closer, lowering my mouth over hers.

I pause for a brief moment, looking her deep in the eyes, waiting for that spark to ignite into the inferno I know is already burning strong between us.

“D-don’t,” she half pleads.

But I do. Her lips part and my tongue strokes against hers. The fire is immediate and all-consuming. I tangle my fingers in the length of her hair, angling her head for better penetration, my tongue embedded so deep I can feel the back of her throat. The way she tastes only inspires me to want to kiss and lick that hot wet pussy I saw earlier. There’s nothing ordinary about her. I swallow her moans, running my hand up and down her arm.

Kissing her long and deep only reinforces the attraction—makes my cock throb and ache like I haven’t had a piece of ass in months.

“No.” She pushes me away, wide-eyed and frazzled.

“Serafina,” I chant her name like a holy vow. “You can’t deny what we’re feeling.”

“I can. And will.”

“Listen, baby . . .”

“Don’t call me that! There’s no way in hell you’ve earned that right.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“I don’t want you to touch me again.”

Why? Chemistry like this doesn’t happen too often. Almost never. And I’m not prepared to let it slip through my fingers without a fight, or at least a plausible explanation. “Are you married?”

I never thought to ask before.

“No.”

“In a committed relationship?”

“You’re way off, Eagle.” She hugs her center, laying more bricks in that defensive wall.

“Enlighten me, then. I have all night.”

“I don’t.” She fakes a yawn. “Some of us work for a living.”

I smirk at her judgmental tone. “Do you think I sit around on my ass all day?”

“That prez patch says you don’t have to work hard to get what you want.”

“For a girl who claims not to know me, you’re pretty free with your opinions.”

“Yeah, well, I’ve been around enough to understand the inner workings of an MC. Not much difference between your rules and a regular company, now is there?”

I rub my chin, liking the hotness of her smartass mouth. The more she talks the more intrigued I get. “Maybe not, pretty girl, but I guarantee my ideas are a lot more innovative than something some asshole in a suit will think up in his corner office.”

She laughs. “I doubt it. We’re standing in a bedroom inside the home of one of the most notorious cartel lords in the United States. I’ll bet on the guy in the suit.”

“Come here.” I grip her shoulders and yank her close again. Our lips meet for a more desperate and demanding kiss. This time, her tongue wrestles mine for control. Bad. And for a girl who didn’t want anything to do with me ten minutes ago, she sure changed her mind.

I break the kiss and tip her chin upward. “I want to fuck you, Serafina.”

“No.” She gives me a defiant pout, but I can see through her denial. Her eyes are filled with hunger. “I need a drink.”

I need a goddamned bottle of tequila—and a cold shower. “What do you want?”

“Whiskey and coke.”

Unable to deny that beautiful face anything, I’ll get it for her. But first . . . I move quickly, gathering her clothes and shoes, and stuff them in the suitcase she opened earlier. Then I zip it up and carry it to the door.

“Hey!”

“What?” I ask.

“You can’t leave me here with nothing to wear.

Release Day Blitz: Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole

Posted on
Amazon
EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

Review: Crossroads (Wind Dragons MC #6) by Chantal Fernando

Posted on

crossroads

Ranger is at a crossroads: he has a chance to leave the motorcycle club and do something else with his life—but he keeps getting dragged back. When the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club asks for his help, Ranger agrees, not only because it is hard to say no to them, but also because he has a vested interest.

A woman is missing.

And Ranger knows her.

The Wind Dragons aren’t the only ones hoping this girl can be found—on the hunt is Johanna Chase, a stubborn detective who won’t give up until the missing woman is found safe. She needs Ranger to navigate the underground world of motorcycle clubs, and immediately, sparks fly. Ranger fights the attraction. He has no plans on going there, no matter how beautiful and badass she is. A biker and a cop? Ridiculous.

But the two of them soon realize that they’re in way over their heads, and now they have to trust each other in order to save her. With the WDMC and the police force at their back, it should be no problem, right?


My Review

A delicious and exciting addition to the Wind Dragons MC Series!

Crossroads is the 6th book in the Wind Dragons MC Series, but can be read as a stand alone novel. Crossroads is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Ranger and Johanna. Ranger and Johanna are the complete and total unlikely pair. Ranger is a biker and lives his life to the biker code. Johanna is a police detective. These two couldn’t be more different if they tried, but when a special case comes up, this unlikely pair will have to find a way to work side by side. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? Wrong. From the moment Ranger and Johanna meet, sparks fly and quickly turn into a raging inferno. They both try their hardest to fight the pull they feel towards one another. But, a connection like this, is one that will refuse to be smothered. The stakes are high and the obstacles are even bigger. Will this unlikely pair take the leap? There is only one way to find out….

Crossroads is an exciting and fast paced story. From the moment you pick up this book, you are sucked into Ranger and Johanna’s tale. One of the things I enjoyed about their story was just how unlikely of a pair these two were. I mean, they were as opposite as opposite can get. But, despite their differences, they made a really great team. They worked hard at building a trust between them. I appreciated the alpha male in Ranger. Not only was he a determined man, but he didn’t let arguments go. He believed in working through issues and finding resolutions. He was also very protective of those he cared about and refused to give up, even in the most dire of situations. And Johanna was tough as nails. She was also fierce and determined. She would stop at nothing to solve her cases, especially the one that she was currently working on. The road to HEA was not an easy one. It was filled with obstacles and drama. These two had a lot to work through to get to the ending they wanted…

Overall, I thought this was a really great read. This story was well written and fast paced. Definitely a book you could finish in one sitting. I enjoyed the characters and found them easy to follow and connect with. This story had just the right amount of drama, action, suspense and of course, sexy good times. Overall, a great read and wonderful addition to this series.

Review: Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty #2) by Jackie Ashenden

makeithurt

The Texas Bounty series heats up as a female bounty hunter goes toe-to-toe with the tantalizing biker who never stopped loving her.

Nora Sutcliffe enjoys having tough guys at her mercy—preferably in handcuffs. The best fugitive recovery agent in the business, Nora always gets her man. But when her latest pursuit leads her to a notorious biker hangout, she’s reunited with “Smith”: the one man who was too hot for Nora to handle. Once upon a time, she was a rich girl and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now she needs his help, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

Eight years ago, Smith let a pretty little Texas debutante break his heart. He picked up the pieces, went to hell and back with the army, then rode out of the darkness with a gang of outlaws at his back. The last thing he needs is a blast from the past like Nora, who has reinvented herself as a gun-toting badass with the stones to challenge him in front of the whole club. But if she thinks Smith will give up one of his brothers for a single night of pleasure, she’s in for a rude awakening.


My Review

Overall, I found this book to be quite enjoyable. This is my first read by this author and I have to say,  Make It Hurt was a quick and easy read for me. I loved the concept and story-line. I found Nora and Smith to a very interesting couple and was excited to see how things would play out with them. You see, Nora is a bounty hunter and Smith is a biker. The two of them couldn’t be more opposites, but share a complicated history. I thought that Smith and Nora had some really good chemistry and they definitely shared some scorching times together.

Make It Hurt isn’t 100% perfect and does have some areas which could have been improved upon such as overall character development. That being said, I did find the book entertaining and was able to finish it one sitting. I think this series has a lot of good potential and I look forward to seeing where the author will take it next.

Review: Last Ride (Wind Dragons MC #5.5) by Chantal Fernando

lastride

The Wind Dragons MC couple who started it all is back! We met the stars of Chantal Fernando’s bestselling series in Dragon’s Lair, and now Sin and Faye are ready for more—and with these two, that means more passion, more action, and more of the best kind of trouble.

Sin, president of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club, doesn’t mind that things have quieted down since he got married—with Faye at his side, he’ll never be bored. Plus, they’ve got their little girl Clover to keep them on their toes. But when new MC brother Talon needs help rooting out a traitor in his old club, Faye’s the first to volunteer. She’s more determined than ever to get involved and put her law degree to good use, but Sin soon finds himself riding to the rescue. Because he’ll kill anybody who touches a hair on Faye’s head—if she doesn’t get to them first. One way or another, tonight’s going to be someone’s last ride….


My Review

You know, when you’re reading a novella, there truly isn’t much you can say because you don’t want to spoil things or give anything away. Last Ride brings us back to the MC couple that started it all. And their novella does not disappoint. It’s got all the elements that I have come to know and love in a Chantal Fernando novel. You’ve got bad ass bikers and lots of action. There’s danger and exciting twists and turns. You’ll be left on the edge of your seat, waiting breathlessly to see how it will all play out….

Yes, Last Ride might just be a quick read, but it certainly packs a punch. This book entertained me and kept me engaged the entire time. This story took me on one thrilling ride and I enjoyed every single second of it.
