Genre-MC Romance
Kindle Edition-257 Pages

Every single person at Skulls Renegade MC knows me as Jenna; Jenna Lawrence to be exact. 
They think I’m some club whore because I’ve led them to believe that’s all I am. I’ve done a damn good job at being that girl. Here’s the thing, I’m not who they think I am. 
My real name is Tegan Hill.
I’ve been here at Skulls Renegade’s Gainesville Chapter for nine long years, waiting for my golden opportunity that may never come. Skulls Renegade MC is responsible for my father’s death, or if I’m more specific, his killer Will Michaels is, Reed & Kyle’s father. 
I’ve watched every single thing happen in this club. I’ve seen Reed and Elena get married. I’m watching everyone around me starting to have their own happily-ever-afters. Only, I don’t get one. I won’t ever be able to, until I avenge my father.
I’ve devoted 9 years, 3168 days, and 76,032 hours to my cause. He’s bound to show up sometime and when he does I’ll finally get justice for what happened to me and my father.
I’ve expected a lot of things, but what I never expected, was to fall in love with a Skulls Renegade MC member.
Which will conquer? My love, or my hate?

Release Date-1/1/18

Well, this series just keeps on getting better and better in my opinion.
This third instalment “Revenge” was my hands down favourite so far; with a slightly different vibe to the others this had a much darker flavour overall and I loved every minute of it.
This is Jenna and Dimitri’s story and these two are like a pair of matching bookends.
With Souls that are almost Swirling in a void of darkness and secrets just waiting for the right moment to step out of there vast oblivion and strike hard.
Dimitri Petrov is practically Russian royalty, but one that has been forsaken by his blood and adopted into the MC lifestyle of brotherhood.
Jenna is hiding in plain sight just biding her time; playing at club whore is so far from where she started off in this life, but she’s in for the long game her compulsion for revenge fueling here drive.
This girl has had some serious hard knocks in the school of life which has helped forge a backbone of steel to impound and protect her surprisingly vulnerable heart.
That is until Her Russian starts to discover chinks in her steel armour and slowly over time erodes and chips away until Jenna has no choice but to hand him the key to her heart.
So this was just so good and considering how I struggled with book one I’m amazed at how invested I now am in the whole Skulls Renegade MC Series; these books have snuck up on me in stealth mode almost like a ninja.
I’m so in for the long haul now and I’m loving how these big bad bikers are falling like dominoes around us; The bigger they are the harder they do fall folks.
So as I said earlier this book was much darker than its predecessors and I do so love a bit of twisted torture and mayhem; it’s just my bag.
So almost instantly here I was hooked and frantically turning the pages needing to know what happened next.
There was so much going on that I was really on a rollercoaster of discovery with this one.
I especially adored how loyal these two were to each other; even over the club.
They had each other’s backs completely here and this was one of my very favourite aspects of this whole book, the unspoken fealty these two had for each other; no questions needed or asked.
Was truly astounding and I really did believe the connection these two outwardly portrayed.
I also loved the lack of judgment on either part here; so refreshing to behold
There is still so much more from these two to come I think; secrets have a habit of becoming known at the most inconvenient time and I’m so looking forward to some expected future fallout here; I’m actually counting on it.
Oh, and can I just say loving Jenna’s Dogs like so much; just wanted to get that out there as there almost a replacement family for her so thought her fierce guards deserved a shout out.
So I do feel these need to be read in order as the further into the Skulls you venture the more a connected story seems to emerge.
That’s not a hardship for me this is shaping up to be a great series and I’m looking forward to the next one in line here.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC copy of “Revenge (Skulls Renegade #3)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-25/5/18

“One: Rage Vengeance Murder (A Path of Deception and Betrayal Book 3)” didn’t really do it for me sorry.
Not only did I find it difficult to connect with the characters it also had issues keeping my focus.
I think my main issue here was this was not quite what I was expecting from the initial blurb.
I don’t think I initially anticipated how heavily this leaned towards the thriller genre.
I was kinda expecting; well I’m not really sure but it wasn’t quite this.
I think I imagined that Azar was going to be a bit more kick-ass revenge chick; imagine Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill” and you’d be there and what I actually got was more; complete homicidal terrorist with a damn god complex.
I also struggled to keep up with the technical jargon and information dump and if I’m completely honest felt a bit lost within the narrative at times.
There was just too much going on overall for me to just relax and go with the flow here.
I also wasn’t a great fan of Mary; I know she was meant to be quirky but I just found her bloody irritating.
on the plus side even though I didn’t quite understand where Azar was coming from in regards to her world domination plan; it was hers and Marcello’s participation here that kept this ticking along for me.
Without there inclusion; I’m not sure I would have finished this.
So this wasn’t overall a good fit for me.
But that’s not to say it won’t be for you.
If you’re a thriller fan; this one is well written; with plenty of twists and turns it just wasn’t ultimately one for me.

Codi Rein is a means to an end. A bloody and vengeful penance for wrong-doing. She was our way to inflict pain and suffering on those who took away what was most important to us. 
She was supposed to be a no one. Insignificant.
She wasn’t supposed to make me smile.
She wasn’t supposed to make me laugh.
She sure wasn’t supposed to make me feel something other than hate. 
She wasn’t supposed to make me love her.
She was a means to an end. Now the bloody and vengeful end looks to be mine. Because it now comes down to love or loyalty and it’s on me to decide what reigns absolute; heart or family

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-13/4/18

Oh, this book it has broken me down to the core then put the shattered pieces of me back together all in the name of fiction.
Tangled love By Haley Jenner is a masterpiece of intensity and feeling.
Leaving me ultimately bereft, so deep did this burrow down into the marrows of my very soul.
The tangled threads of Codi and Parkers love along with the betrayal of everything that Codi imagined mattered to her leaves her a broken shell of a woman.
Parker broke Codi.

 photo tumblr_mjx6s04YtN1s2vhkuo1_500_zps9hmrbbrj.gif

But in doing so he also broke himself hindsight is a total bummer and misery loves company.
In seeking revenge or vengeance in the name of a mother who would have been devastated and ashamed at the men her sons had become.
Her boys evolving into Monsters in her name.

 photo Amazing-Black-And-White-Mamas-Boy-Text-Tattoo-On-Mens-Collarbone_zps1mo31osk.jpg

Parker and Rocco have eventually become everything they once despised and looked down on.
The father’s sins have ultimately become the sons bringing this whole sorry saga full circle in a macabre dance where the innocent is always the loser and blood is the currency.

 photo giphy_zpsjncslg16.gif

So watching the pile of cards come tumbling down around Parker’s ears was a kind of karmic justice.
The struggle he faced pulled between his brother Rocco and his love for a woman he knows does not deserve his hate and wrath was as sweet as it was painful.
And when this whole sorry mess eventually implodes in a dramatic take no prisoners fashion, It was kind of therapeutic to behold the suffering Parker had brought on himself through his own twisted actions.
I was such a proud mama bear watching the way Codi handled herself in the moment and also in the eventual aftermath.
She was strong and courageous such a fighter.
But what was saddest was watching her eyes opened to the cruel world around her.
She had had her naivety and rose coloured specs ripped from her eyes.
And for a while, I wondered how she would fare.
She had gifted her heart away and now was dealing with the fallout of that duplicity.
You expect the person that claims to love you to want to protect that organ with every breath in there body not rob you of you last.

 photo 1c22ed08d4101e6940ddd5ebf2407309_zpsif2k8yo3.gif

Loved the ending especially that the author didn’t gloss over the betrayal suffered here.
It wasn’t rushed and played out exactly how it should.
As she can see from the above ramblings this story had such a profound effect on me.
It was so very well written and such an incredibly emotive tale that I could not give it less than its deserved full five stars.
There was so much going on here and even when I wanted to hate certain individuals I couldn’t help but also relate.
Haley Jenner has done a great job of humanising what should have been unredeemable.
So bravo lady.
This story has imprinted on me and it will be one I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to forget.

ARC-BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-26/2/18

“One Too Many” for me was such an interesting and diverse read.
Whilst not my favourite of Jade’s books I still enjoyed and appreciated this very much.
This was certainly a very different read from the norm and I think that is what I found so intriguing about this.
The emotions explored here were very easy to get lost in and I found that this did manage to convey to me the deep sentiment that comes from knowing your partner inside out.
Perhaps not as much so in the beginning, But certainly later when Bret and Grace started to reconnect within there relationship.
Also, a side effect brought forth unwittingly by Thomas.
So what did I love about “One Too Many”
Well Brett and Grace’s marriage, it was like a warm welcoming hug.
There closeness and acceptance of each other but also that fact that they were flawed normal individuals, Was so refreshing to behold.
There eventual affection and support towards Thomas was also extremely endearing.
I loved that they had the ability to just accept things at face value. But also, the ability to question things when it was actually needed, does that even make sense.
The fact that this book and the story was just so normal, no tricks or gimmicks just folks trying to live there lives the best way they can, I loved that about “One Too Many”.
And OMG can I just say those bedroom antics,
HOT HOT HOT!!!!


 photo mrgrxM_zpsnrj2kdgj.gif

Fanning myself here big style girls.
Joking aside the bedroom scenes here were amazing and compelling, so well written, It wasn’t just sex you could actually feel the tenderness and sentiment and also the playfulness behind the filth and corruption.
There was also perhaps a deeper message to convey here, a moral one, is it actually worth the risk to destroy something so precious as the love and trust in a union over money.
Could one night actually destroy a lifetime of affection and trust.
finally, I really liked how this jumped from each characters POV.
I felt much closer to all three from getting to play in each of their heads for a short time.
What did I have slight issues with, well it’s actually a short list and these are just my own personal observations.
So here you are,
I wasn’t really a mega fan of the ending.

(view spoiler)

So that’s it from me, this is a fabulously unusual read that you really should give a chance too.
I don’t think you’ll regret it.

Chelsea
When I was a child my favourite fairytale was Beauty And The Beast. I dreamed of sacrificing myself for my father, and bravely going to an enchanted castle to live with the Beast. There I gently kissed the beast and transformed him into a handsome Prince.

Now, I’m an adult, and it appears I have somehow wandered into the enchanted mansion of a beast. He is cold and harsh and cannot be transformed with a gentle kiss, but strangely, I don’t want to transform him. 
Every single atom in my body, from the tips of my hair to the soles of my feet vibrates, throbs, and calls for my beast to take me … again and again.

Thorne
Soon the whole world will know my name … but first I have a distraction to deal with. The matter of a manipulative lying little thief.

When I catch up with her, those bright, scheming eyes try their best to work their magic on me. Somebody should have told Chelsea Appleby no one steals from Thorne Blackmore.

She tells me she will pay me back. She is sorry. She wants more time. The problem is I don’t actually need the money back. What I need is to punish her. To possess and own every beautiful inch of her body.

I want to leave my mark on her delicate English skin. Forever.

This is a full length standalone with no cheating and guaranteed HEA. Includes bonus content.

🌟🌟🌟STARS

I have read a lot of Georgia Le Carre and I usually love her work but I have to admit this one wasn’t my favourite.
It wasn’t awful it was just an OK read for me.
First, that synthesis was a real puller only problem was it had little to do with the actual plot here.
Blackmailed by the beast was a bit of a mish-mash that sometimes worked but at other times left me scratching my head in confusion.
A lot of issues I found here were just inserted into the story and then not tied up so overall this felt at times finished and unmessy.
I’m assuming the final words here were to leave a bit of an opening for maybe a second book.
So maybe that’s why there seemed to be holes in the storyline.
I’ll give you an example Chelsea gets warned off by an ex-girlfriend, don’t get to cosy she said.
Well, we never hear from this girl again.
There’s a lot more of the same throughout.
I did like this but didn’t love it.
I think the main reason was that it wasn’t quite what I thought it to be and I found it to be a lot shorter than what I was initially expecting.
It still found this entertaining and I did finish so that’s a plus.

ARC-REVIEW
Release Date-19/2/18

Up in Smoke (King, #8) by T.M. Frazier is my second book by this author.
I have previously read “all the Rage” and though I enjoyed it this is hands down my favourite out of the two.
This is Smoke and Frankie’s story.
And also as an added bonus, I got to reconnect with Rage AKA Bionic Barbie who I absolutely bloody adore, so I was super ecstatic over this little fact.
So the opening chapter here was an absolute heartbreaker.
But It was this insight into Smoke’s past tragedy that helped me reconcile enormously with his actions to follow.
Without this, I think it would have taken me a lot longer to warm to him.
It’s been a while since I read “All the rage” I know he was in that, but my memory of him was kinda fuzzy.
So my main impressions of Smoke as an individual were really all gleaned from here.
That is why as awful as I found that opening scene, it really was needed for me as a sort of barometer for Smoke’s early on overall behaviour.
So Frankie is hiding in plain sight as a Catholic schoolgirl.
Lieing low, but also hiding in fear as she completes what she feels is her calling.
But the thing that she is afraid of is about to catch right up with her.
As the men that are after her father, have got sick of waiting for him to crawl out of the woodwork and have decided to take Frankie as bait.
Either he show’s his face or they are gonna take it out of Frankie’s hide.
Her days are literally numbered.
So when Smoke turns up and kidnaps her right out of school. Frankie posing as schoolgirl Sarah is terrified.
But She’s still going to use every trick in her arsenal to try and escape this situation.
She can’t give him her father and she knows no rescue is on the near horizon for her.
She only has herself and her wits to rely on and with people counting on her, well shes determined to give Smoke the slip.
So this was great reading I really liked both main characters and also the overall dynamic between the two.
Smoke himself was what I would describe as your classic tortured anti-hero, a bad man but with some redeeming qualities.
Though originally here its quite hard to see what these are, you’d need an actual magnifying glass maybe to spot any.
As time goes on he becomes less certain of what he thinks he knows and wants in regards to Frankie.
He can’t help but feel a connection and strong pull towards her and this is the last thing he wants or needs.
Smoke considers himself a bit of a lone wolf but it’s apparent he has more actual link’s than he realises.
Frankie well shes just as bad when it comes to forming connections, she also tries to stave off this inevitable union.
Both running scared in my opinion.
Frankie, well Shes all sorts of feisty, loyal and beautiful and with a moral compass to boot.
What’s not to love.
And When these two eventually give in to there baser needs there definitely going up in smoke.
So this was a total page turner it was action packed, full of intrigue and super scorching when it comes to the temperature.
It would have been a full house for me except for one little detail.
There was a certain incident on Smokes side that I couldn’t overlook and without going into to much detail it pissed me the hell off and I wanted to wallop smoke with my bleeding kindle and then throw every pot, ornament and near handy object at his stupid, thick numbskull head like really really hard, GRRRR!!!!!

So I removed half a star because I was super annoyed, it would have been one, but I waited a while to write this review and I’ve calmed down a tad now, as long as I don’t think about it to much.
I wouldn’t have been in such a huff had this happened earlier in time, but Feelings were actually occurring so super no no no.
But despite that one instant all else is good in the world.
So give this excellently written book a try it’s a cracker of a read.

Oh, My Bloody God!!!
My heart is still pounding like a jack-hammer this series is turning my hair white through sheer fright.
It Just keeps getting better and better the more I read and Just when I think I might have turned a corner and worked it out, it changes directions on me and leaves my scratching my head in confusion.
So yeh I think its safe to say I haven’t got the bloody foggiest.
I’m not usually into these serial type novella’s but I’ve got to admit this one has me totally hooked.
And when I finish one instalment I’m gagging for the next.
And Three Breaths is certainly action-packed.
And Morgan is definitely not going down without a fight, I was cheering her on near the end of this.
Practically shouting you go, girl, stick him where it hurts.
Three Breaths again switches between Morgan, Reid and the Wolf’s viewpoint so you actually feel fully immersed in the whole story.
Poor Reid’s imaging’s of Morgan’s fate was so visual in their descriptions it sent actual chills down my spine.
The Wolf’s hate and Venom, for whatever reason practically froze my veins with its chilling intensity and poor Morgan’s battle for her existence echoed through every turn of the page.
Though this is short the emotion and feeling packed in this is so immense, I was nervously wringing my hands throughout.
So Four Hearts here I come, this tale is just so addictive I feel like I’m on some awful journey that I need to see through to the bitter end.
I just need poor Red/Morgan to catch a break and outwit the Wolf.
Really can’t wait for the next frightful episode.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
RELEASE DATE-29/1/18
So Deeper is the second part of The riveting “Deep duet” by M. Malone and Nana Malone.
And after where we left this I have been gagging to get stuck right back into this enthralling story and I just have to say Deeper certainly didn’t disappoint, it just keeps getting better and better.
So we start back off here exactly where Deep left us with Diana on the move along with that ever so revealing flash-drive and with Rafe not far behind in hot pursuit.
and Instead of being in self-preservation mode after realising Dianna has lied to and used him all he can think about is her safety.
Which is just so heart-stirringly hot.
Rafe just comes across as such an absolute keeper, I actually loved him even more here, there’s just something so very sexy about a man who is willing to lay his feeling so bare, leaving himself completely vulnerable and open.
I must admit though, I am bloody glad he has finally woken up and smelt the coffee and realised Dianna is not quite what she actually appears maybe now they can start to move forward in regards to trusting each other.
I hope also that Diana realises just how lucky she is that Rafe was prepared to give her a second chance.
So I would love to say that the evasions of truth are so over, but this is Dianna that we are talking about and although Rafe seems more than willing to lay all his cards on the table now, Dianna herself doesn’t seem quite able yet to break the habits of a lifetime and still seems to be dragging her feet slightly in regards to full disclosure.
So right from the start here, We are thrust back into the action and this time around we also get to spend a lot more time with Rafe’s extended family, which was fabulous.
We also get to see a much softer side to Dianna, which really helped warm me up to her.
I think I got a bit more of an insight here into what actually makes her tick and why she can come across as a bit cold at times.

I am also very pleased to say that the disconnect I was feeling in “Deep” is no more, I can now feel Dianna and Rafe’s connection, so all’s good on that front too.
what else, well we also get to experience a lot much action in this instalment.
and also whereas in “Deep” I would say there was more sex, less talk, in “Deeper it was, in my opinion, the opposite which really helped me to get more of a feel for our pair’s dynamics.
So I think that about wraps this one up. I found Deeper a great read that kept my interest right till its satisfying conclusion and I would be happy to recommend this well-written duet.

I received an arc of Deeper of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

But who is the Wolf?
And why has he chosen me?
He whistles a tune that’s haunting. He glares at me through eyes that are vacant. I feel his heart beating, yet I know he has no soul. He moves like the wind…I can’t hear his footsteps. I want this to end. He’s playing with my mind. He branded me with ink. He wants to destroy me.
“I, Reid, take thee, Morgan, to be my wife. To have and to hold, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do us part…”
I have a reason to keep running.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 STARS.
So this is the second part of the Game of life series and it is just as nerve-shredding as part one.
Morgan is still stuck in her living nightmare and Reid is still desperately trying to hold things together at his end of things.
All this while also fielding the police officers that are breathing down his neck with there endless questions and suspicions regarding his guilt.
secrets and lies folks, secrets and lies.
Whats hidden beneath the surface is bound to be discovered and as small tidbits are drip fed to the reader we slowly discover what lies abound.
This, In turn, heightening suspicion, all round and begging the question who do you actually trust and how well do you know you’re nearest and dearest.
I’m not going to go into great detail here as this is one of those tales that you just need to experience blind, but its safe to say that the action is ramped up here from the get-go.
And I can guarantee you that your brain is going to go into overdrive trying to decipher this vexing puzzle.
Prepare to again be stumped, terrified and enthralled all while praying to whatever god will help you.
“Two footsteps” is compelling reading and I am still no nearer a solution regarding The Wolf’s identity and I’m also suitably shocked with Megan’s first guess when the wolf finally asks
Who am I?, Really Megan I’m disappointed in you.
So I need book three like NOW!!!!
I don’t know how I’m going to last, till I get my mitts on it, the anticipation is like killing me.
I cant get this bloody story out of my head.
cant recommend this enough people, you all need to pick this up seriously.
I was gifted a copy of “Two Footsteps” by Belle Brooks of which I have reviewed voluntary.

🎈BOOK REVIEW🎈

Release Date-July 7th 2017
Genre-Psychological Thriller
Publisher-Obie Books
Kindle Edition-91 Pages

“My one fear is now my reality.”

He didn’t offer his name when he fulfilled his need to include me as a player in his game.
I’m number thirteen. Just a number given to the bitches who wronged him.
I was blindsided. Stolen from my life. In his devilled eyes, I have a debt to pay…he wants my final breath to see us even.

“I know who you are Morgan Banks, the question is, who am I? Five games will set you free when you can tell me who I’d be.”- The Wolf.

Am I strong enough to take on the Wolf?

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟STARS.
So “One Fear” is the first novella in The Game Of Life Series by Belle Brooks.
And this is also the first thing I have ever read by this author.
I also would like to add that the front cover here is breathtaking and exactly how I pictured Morgan in my mind after Reid’s heartfelt description of her.
So what the bloody hell did I just experience, and I say experience instead of read as my heart is still pounding loudly in utter shock and fright after just putting this down.
What an earth has poor Morgan done that merits such an intense level of hatred directed at her and how can she not no why.
but I digress I’m gonna give you a very brief glimpse into “One Fear”
Someone wants to play a game.
And if you win they will let you go home.
Home to your lovely life, handsome husband Reid and adoring children.
To win, it’s easy, answer a question, who am I?
Twelve have come before you and failed.
They paid for there sins
Your number thirteen
And there’s only one rule here Red run!
Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf
Morgan Banks is.
Elsewhere, Reid Morgan’s husband is slowly unravelling as the police don’t seem to be taking him seriously and he’s going out of his mind with worry.
Where is his wife?
Now wow, this was a truly terrifying tale,
Set in Australia and told from two points of view Reid and Morgan herself, we get to experience everything as if in real time.
I was gripped throughout and though short, of novella length, every word was made to count here.
I still have absolutely no clue to what is going on here, not the foggiest, absolutely stumped.
So as “No fear” closes with me scratching my head in confusion I am already salivating for part two of this addictive tale.
I can not recommend this fucked up story enough.
I felt like I was in an episode of criminal minds.
I need to read part two immediately.
This is heart-poundingly psychological mindfuckery at its best enjoy.
I know I did.
