Review: Ace of Hearts (The Cursed Ravens MC #1) by Chantal Fernando

Posted on

The New York Times bestselling author of the “swoonworthy and addicting” (Kim Karr, New York Times bestselling author) Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series is back with more bad boy bikers in this first novel in the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series.

Erin Dawson had the perfect life growing up in a perfect home with a perfect family. Her parents gave her and her sister everything a child could want. But after learning that the man she’s called “dad” her whole life isn’t actually her biological father, Erin is determined to find the man who is.

Armed with her original birth certificate, she finds her father, but begins questioning if her mom had been right all along to keep this information buried. It turns out he is the president of a motorcycle club, which could not be further from the life Erin leads. But, she’s determined to get to know the man who she gets her striking blue eyes from. Despite getting what she wants and finding her biological father, it’s the slightly older, much rougher but incredibly sexy biker Ace that catches Erin’s eye.

As the new “princess” of the Cursed Ravens, Erin is learning a whole new world, but her father has made it clear she is off limits. Will Ace follow his President’s orders or will he put his heart ahead of his duty? A sizzling tale of family and passion, Ace of Hearts features Fernando’s signature “snark and sass” (Booklist) and is perfect for fans of Kristin Ashley.

My Review

“People spend their whole lives looking to connect with someone. To feel that pull, that tether, and to be understood. To be loved. He might be a big tough biker, but he can’t pretend that he’s different from the rest of us.”

When I first heard about Ace of Hearts, I was over the moon. I was ridiculously excited. I’m a huge fan of Chantal Fernando’s Wind Dragon MC Series, so I couldn’t wait to dive into this one. Ace of Hearts hits the ground running and had me totally captivated. My first impressions of Erin was she was one badass, ballsy chick. She had no fear when it came to confronting the father she never knew about. Suddenly Erin finds herself immersed in a world that she never knew existed and has the caught the eye of Ace. Ace is rugged, sexy and everything Erin should stay away from. But, the pull between these two is instant and wild horses couldn’t keep these two away from one another. Will Ace and Erin pursue their connection despite her father’s warnings? Will Erin be tough enough to handle the biker world?? There’s only one way to find out…

Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. It’s kind of hard for me to review because there were so many wonderful parts that I just loved and wanted more of.  And then there were parts that were just rough. Let’s start with the good: I loved the characters. They were everything I wanted and then some. They were bikers with a heart of gold. You could tell they were badass when they needed to be, but also had really big hearts. I loved Ace. He was real with Erin and didn’t play games. He was sexy and swoon worthy; the total package. And Erin, I really loved her fearlessness. She had balls and was tough. I could definitely see her fitting in well with the MC world. Together, I thought Ace and Erin made a good match. Their chemistry was instant and smokin hot. The tension between the two of them was definitely palpable and made you want to see more of their story.

What didn’t work: At times the story felt a little rough, like it needed to be developed a little more. I felt like the the intensity of the MC world was dumbed down at times for Erin and I would have liked to see it be a little more real. There were definitely some moments that felt a little cheesy to me. Also, I wish there had been a little more consistency with Erin. For most of the story, she is portrayed as this strong, badass daughter of the MC president. However, there were moments where she appeared bratty, weak even. I wanted to roll my eyes at some of her behavior.

So, while this book isn’t a 100% slam dunk for me, I do think that this series has a lot of potential. For me, there were some elements that worked and others that didn’t. And while I didn’t love it, I still had a good time reading this book. Like I said there is a ton of potential here and in the end, the characters won me over and had me wanting to know more. I’m curious to see where this series will go next and would be open to reading more from it in the future.

Cover Reveal: THE UPSIDE OF FALLING AND THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE – July 5th

Blurb to come after the release of THE UPSIDE OF FALLING

GOODREADS: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40193307-the-downside-of-love

 

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Release Day Blitz: Blood Type by K.A. Linde

Posted on

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.

Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.

“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.

“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”

She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.

“You left,” he growled.

“I . . .”

“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”

The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.

“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”

“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.

“Good.”

Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson return in the exhilarating follow-up to the provocative paranormal romance Blood Type.

Review: Constant: A Confidence Men Novel by Rachel Higginson

Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.

Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.

Five days ago I thought I saw him.

I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.

He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.

Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about.

Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.

Five minutes ago, I saw him again.

Five seconds ago, I was too late.


My Review

“We were a family. Not a conventional one or even one made by blood, but we looked out for each other, we supported each other and we protected each other.”

“I felt turned inside out, strung from the ceiling by my toes so all my secrets could shake out of me and land on the floor below. I felt exposed and transparent and broken in half.”

Wow! What a way to start a new series!! Constant kicks off not only a new series, but a new genre for author Rachel Higginson, and all I can say is that she totally knocked it out of the park! Constant is sexy and thrilling. The writing is intoxicating and the story-line is gripping. I easily finished this book in just one sitting and could not stop myself from devouring it. My eyes were glued to the pages and my breath was held in anticipation. I was on the edge of my seat, dying to know what would happen next.

Constant will grab you from the very first page and will leave you totally riveted. The past and present blending in the most perfect way. The puzzles pieces all laid out and just kept you guessing. I loved the mystery and suspense that followed the story. I loved trying to guess the motives and figure out what it all meant; how this story was going to play out.

Constant is refreshing and an exciting start to The Confidence Game Series. This book hit all my marks and definitely kept me on my toes. It had just the right amount of romance, intrigue, mystery and sexy good times. And the ending…the ending will just leave you begging for more! I can not wait to see what this author will have in store for us next!

Review Tour: Show Me the Way (Fight for Me #1) by A.L. Jackson

Posted on

☆☆☆Show Me the Way is Live☆☆☆

Show Me the Way ,The first stand-alone novel in A.L. Jackson’s brand-new Fight for Me series…

“This book is absolutely perfect.” – Corinne Michaels, New York Times Bestselling Author

READ FOR FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED

Amazon: http://smarturl.it/SMTHAmzn2

Audible: http://smarturl.it/SMTWAudible

Signed Paperback: http://www.aljacksonauthor.com/signed-copies

The first sexy, captivating, stand-alone novel in the brand-new FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .

Rex Gunner. As bitter as he is beautiful.

The owner of the largest construction company in Gingham Lakes has been burned one too many times. His wife leaving him to raise their daughter was the last blow this single dad could take. The only woman he’ll let into his heart is his little girl.

Rynna Dayne. As vulnerable as she is tempting.

She ran from Gingham Lakes when she was seventeen. She swore to herself she would never return. Then her grandmother passed away and left her the deed to the diner that she once loved.

When Rex meets his new neighbor, he knows he’s in trouble.

She’s gorgeous and sweet and everything he can’t trust.

Until she becomes the one thing he can’t resist.

One kiss sends them tumbling toward ecstasy.

But in a town this size, pasts are bound to collide. Caught in a web of lies, betrayal, and disloyalty, Rex must make a choice.

Will he hide behind his walls or will he take the chance . . .


My Review

“She was the kind of woman who could make a grown man stumble on his feet. Stunning. Gorgeous. Too sexy for her own damned good. Or maybe mine”

“All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed.”

“In my experience, joy is a choice. Life is rough. Don’t expect it not to be. But if aren’t laughin’, we’re crying. Choose to laugh. Choose what brings you joy. And when you choose you path, it may not always be the easiest one, but it’ll always be the right one.”

Show Me the Way is breathtaking and all consuming. It is the kind of story that you will just want to get lost in; live in. You will want to breathe in all the words, let them be buried deep into your soul until your mind is consumed with nothing else but these words and this book. You will find it impossible to put this down and if you’re like me, wild horses won’t be able to take you away…

Told from dual points of view, Show Me the Way is the first book in an all new series from author AL Jackson. From the moment I first encountered Rynna, I was sucked into her story. I was desperate for more information and could not wait to see how her story was going to play out. In no way was I prepared for the journey I was about to experience. It’s books like this that remind me why I love AL Jackson’s writing so much. It’s not just words written on a page, but is a story that embeds itself into your soul. From lyrical writing to a breathtaking story-line to broken characters, Show Me the Way is a story that will grip onto your heart and will hold on to it with everything it has.

Show Me the Way is powerful, emotional. A story of the truest love. A story of pain and heartache. Of betrayal and devastation. A story of taking chances, letting go of the past and fighting for the love that you deserve.

Show Me the Way is so much more than I ever saw coming.There are so many moments, passages and quotes that I’ve highlighted; I don’t want to forget a single thing. This story touched my heart in ways that I can’t possibly put into words. AL Jackson’s writing has once again slayed my heart, taking me on another unexpected journey. The writing captivating me, making me feel as though I am a part of the story and pulling such strong emotions from me. This series is off to an unforgettable start and can not wait to see what this author has in store for my heart next.
