From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.
It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.
From Hot holes to major rock star A hole
This Book! These character! I loved it, loved him, her, the words, everything!
I love a rock star story, I also love an A class cocky geezer with attitude who thinks he's all that and Alex had it in abundance.
"He was made for legends, almighty like an angry god. Too bad he knew it"
Alex is his own worst enemy it's like he has a self destruct button and doesn't care, he's a guy with a huge chip on his shoulder, addicted to drugs and alcohol and spiralling out of control.
Indie is hired to watch his every move to make sure he is never alone and never tempted and to accompany him on a three month tour.
"He was no knight in shining armour, a far cry from a saviour. He was just a broken, sad boy who was given a great gift that put him on display for the world to see and judge".
I loved Indie she was no pushover and gave as good as she got. Indie is a down to earth girl who lost her parents and loves her brother, his wife and kids and wants to help them any way she can and this tour would put food on the table and pay rent. Indie has a big enough motive for sticking with the tour and nothing Alex does or says could make her want to quit, Indie is tough and determined to see it through no matter how hard Alex pushes.
This small woman with blue hair who rides around on a bicycle and travels around with a sewing machine to make her own dresses is the last person you would expect to tame a rock god but she does and the journey is exciting as the layers of Alex start to be revealed and Indie becomes his muse, his inspiration, his new fix.
" I wanted to overdose on her like cocaine, and heroin, and crack, knowing the destruction I was willingly inhaling into my body. Because Indie, like drugs was a temporary fix".
Midnight Blue is brilliant, I think this is my favourite book of L.J Shen's and although I have read all previous books and loved them too this one just sits in a class of it's own. The words are poetic the characters just draw you in and the journey to a hea is a roller-coaster with angst and heartfelt moments.
A cocky rock-star, a sassy and likeable heroine, a moving and addictive plot, twists and turns, brilliant dialogue, hot sex scenes, humour and I loved that Alex was British.

When your world crashes down...
When they all say you’re out...
When your body is broken...
I will rise.
I will return.
And I will be undefeated.
Nick Renshaw is the golden boy of British rugby. When a serious injury threatens his career, he starts to spiral downwards, a broken man.
Feeling abandoned and betrayed by those closest to him, he fights to restart his life. Maybe there’s someone out there who can help him. Maybe he can find his way back toward the light. Maybe … not.
Dr. Anna Scott might be the one person who can help Nick, but she has her own secrets. And when Nick’s past comes back to haunt them both, the enigmatic doctor is more vulnerable than she seems.
Broken and betrayed, the struggle to survive seems intolerable. Who will give in, and who will rise, undefeated?
I will rise... I will return..... An I will be undefeated
Firstly this cover, I love it, brilliant cover choice for this story.
Undefeated is a good story that I found myself completely immersed both with the plot and the characters.
Undefeated is based on the story of a Rugby player Nick Renshaw who on his way up the ladder to bigger and better times in his game gets knocked down through an injury and from there Nicks world Spiral's.
Anna Scott is a sports psychologist who has had her fare share of bad luck and down times and has moved from the U.S to the UK and is hoping for her practice to also take off and get more clients. Molly is approached by Nicks team coach to work with Nick following his injury.
There's instant attraction for both when they first meet but professionalism and the fact Nick has a girlfriend quickly squash any romantic notions. The girlfriend though lets talk about her, I love it when there's a character you just love to hate and this ones called Molly, a stereotypical self absorbed wag. So you could say this book evoked feelings it certainly evoked a dislike or certain characters lol
Anna was there for Nick in crisis and both of them slowly entered into a relationship that was forbidden in there working relationship.
In summary; a good read without heavy angst or drama focusing on the characters and a moral in the story of positive thinking, determination and rising above negativity and going for your goals and dreams, whether this be sport, love life or however its applied.
Undefeated has it's hot moments and is told in third person dual pov.
I loved the northern English twang from Nick, it's so refreshing for a reader like myself who reads so many American romances to read something in her own lingo, loved it!

I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.
Until he shows up.
Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.
His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.
Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here.
What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.
It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would
K Webster never ceases to amaze me with the journeys her brilliant writing has taken me on with some of the most captivating characters and My Torin is no different in that respect.
My Torin is another example of why K Webster is my go to author. Some books give you angst, some give you waves of emotion were you cling on with white knuckles to the very end and some give you all the feels, you just never know what to expect with this author and I love that.
My Torin...... I'm almost speechless.
So many emotions in My Torin, waves and waves of different emotions.
Two of the most abnormal people on earth. Yet right now, we fit in. We belong. Together, we make up something beautiful.
Cocaine Casey. The baby left in the snow because her mother was too cracked out to care for her.
Casey has ADHD she's is in foster care, she's a 17 year old girl with attitude counting down the days to freedom that comes with her 18th birthday.
Only at the 11th hour she is taken into a home and I could never have imagined the way the plot would go, how it went from there and the characters introduced.
I was captivated, hooked, spellbound.
I wouldn't say this is a dark read, it isn't a story that contains sex and violence either.
If I had to compare it to another book I would say Archers voice by Mia Asher but that is a very, very, tiny slight likeness just to give you an idea of the feels this story evokes.
My Torin contains a beautiful relationship, two people who learn to communicate through touch, senses, they find a way and discover love in a way only they can explain it.
A two person team. Yin and Yang. The sun and moon. We work together somehow. Some weird way fate brought us together and she knew exactly what she was doing.
"My Torin is a puzzle. My Torin is one I can solve".
I have so many highlights from this book so many moving and captivating words.
I can't recommend this book enough.
Told in first person and leads to a hea.

The Beast had Belle.
Killian Black has me.
How I got here doesn’t matter, even though he says it does. Says it was my choice. He doesn’t get it, though. It wasn’t ever a choice for me.
And now, he’s changing the rules.
The agreement was one month. For thirty days, I’d be his. He’s no longer satisfied with my body alone, though. He wants my soul, too. Wants every part of me. And even though I can pretend I’m safe when I lie beneath him, this man does something to me. Something wicked.
A thing that will break me.
People suck at consequences.
Cilla made the choice. She offered the deal. I just took her up on it. So what if I changed the rules half-way in? I’m not apologizing for it.
See, Cilla and me, we’re the same. She’s dark. As dark as me. Something happened to her. Something bad. It damaged her.
But it’s not a hero she seeks. It’s an avenging angel. A dark knight. That, I can do. I’ll slay her dragons, but it’ll cost her, because in return, I want everything. And I’ll take it.
Author’s note: Captive Beauty is a standalone romance. Think Beauty and the Beast, but twisted and dark in the best, dirtiest ways.
Natasha knight took me to the edge with this dark, captivating and gripping read.
Captive beauty begins with Cilla's brother getting caught trying to get one over on Killian but this dark and dominant man who has mafia ties doesn't let anyone off easily, if at all.
Cilla offers herself to pay for her brothers mistake to save his life. One month with Killian to do as he pleases to save him.
Although Cilla offers herself she isn't without fire and fight, she has backbone and doesent make it easy for Killian once he has her but there's attraction there and something dark and vulnerable they both see in each other.
Cilla and Killian have an understanding, Cilla is there for her brother, Killian just wants her, is drawn to her, there's hate on Cilla's part, shes not there by choice but as the story progresses and walls come down a deeper understanding of each other's pasts, secrets and desires unfold.
Captive beauty is a dark read has rough gritty sex scenes and talks of past abuse but doesn't go into detail with that.
This is a story were the enemy becomes a friend and you could say from Cilla's view the Dragon becomes a dragon slayer and a prince.
"The beasts aren't what we think they are or who we think they are"
If your looking for something dark, on the edge without flowers, fluffyness and definitely not your conventional romance then dive in and enjoy.
Brilliantly written, creative and off the charts hot.
Recommended dark read filled with suspense. Told in first person dual pov and leads to hea.

Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.
I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I'm thinking before I even do.
It's alarming and alluring. It's dark and deadly. It's everything I've ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.
It doesn't take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it's too late. He has secrets, secrets I can't fathom, secrets that make it so I can't walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that's both terrifying and thrilling. He's a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.
I want to hate him.
Sometimes, I do.
But it doesn't stop me from loving him, too.
The rest of the trilogy is on Amazon and available through KU.

Book one of two
Interesting and filled with suspense.
Why would a 36 year old man be interested in an 18 year old student? and why would an 18 year old intelligent woman not realise the man she was falling in love with was high up in the Mafia.
I was intrigued especially when lies started to unfold and the twists and turns started to come.
Naz is a powerful man that doesn't waste words and Karisssa's excuse I suppose for being blind to it all is she is completely captivated and under his spell.
Brilliantly written and so hot. Looking forward to book 2
Listened in audio and the narration was brilliant.
Once a Disciple, forever a Disciple.
After giving up eighteen months of his life for his club,
the Disciples' president is finally tasting freedom again.
Stone knows there's only one thing that might ever be as sweet,
but she's too young, too perfect, too untouchable for a man like him.
A Disciple will fight like a savage to protect what matters.
Evie's life is pretty much blowing up in her face
until Stone finds her broken down on the side of the road.
Now if only she could get him to stop being the martyr
and give them a shot at what she knows they both want.
It's high time this biker got the chance to let go and just cruise.
Amazon : smarturl.it/CruiseDE
Goodreads : http://bit.ly/2z21Tos
My body was an inferno but I never wanted to stop burning.
Great series, I love all these characters. Cruise is the last in the series and contains Evie and Stone's road to love.
An unlikely relationship but it worked.
Stone is the president of the MC, he's in his 40's and just been in prison for 18 months doing time to protect a brother and Evie who is 27 has only just left home after living with controlling religious parents who were forcing her into a marriage she didn't want.
Stone already knew Evie before he was sent to prison, Stone had gone to the diner daily just to be near her. Although Stone wanted Evie he never saw himself as good enough and to old for her and didn't get the chance to make a move before prison.
On the day of his release Stone see's Evie broken down and down on her luck with a lot of things, broken car, evicted from her apartment and no money.
Stone shows up like a knight on a harley at the side if the road and he's not taking no for an answer, he's thought about Evie for 18 months and he's not letting her go.
I liked these two as a couple.
Stone was sweet yet dominant with Evie, and Evie was beginning to experience new things including friends which she never had after being secluded from society growing up.
Evie and Stone had chemistry, it was slow burn until they got there with Stone trying to do the right thing and take it slow with Evie but she turned out to be quit the vixen.
There's club business in Cruise, enemies, threats, action and danger and as always in this series a great family atmosphere among the characters.
No unnecessary violence or sexual acts, the Savage disciples are a family club which makes this one of the more enjoyable MC series to get addicted to with swoon worthy, hot and heart warming moments but also has some drama in the mix.
A recommended MC series.
Each book can be read as a standalone, leads to a hea and each told in first person dual pov.

The complete If I Break Series Bundle. Includes If I Break, Before I Break, Almost Broken and Beautifully Broken.
This is not your typical happily ever after...
Lauren Brooks wants to do three things: Escape the small town she grew
up in, get accepted to her dream school in Chicago, and graduate
without drowning in debt. Now she’s working her ass off to do just
With a full course load and a waitressing job at one of the hottest night clubs in Chicago, she does not have time for distractions;
ones who only want to get into her pants. She’s been burned before.
Only a fool goes for a second round... With just two semesters left
until graduation, everything’s on track.
Until she meets Cal. Enter distraction.
At six-foot-two, with ebony hair, deep grey eyes, and a smile that
could only hide an agenda, she knows he’s trouble. And for the first
time in her life, a little trouble might be just what she needs.
No. What she wants.
It isn't like she’d ever marry the guy.
Until she does.
What she thinks will be her happily ever after, is only the beginning.
Cal has a secret. One that makes loving him come with a price, and
being his wife cost more than she bargained for.
Wow! I feel drained.
I honestly thought I had read this book, it's been on my kindle that long and realising I hadn't once I started to read, I couldn't put it down, it was like finding a diamond among gems in a treasure chest.
What a story...
So full of angst with a huge twist, the story completely captivated me and I feel like I've been on a roller-coaster ride with Lauren who is one of the main characters.
If I break is full of suspense and uncertainty, you think you've figured it out, then find you were completely wrong.
Brilliant writing from Portia Moore and what a clever and creative plot. I loved it, hated it, my emotions were all over the place. This has to be the most complicated releationship I have read in a while and each book reveals a little more to finding truths and giving you hope for Lauren in this complex relationship.
I had to read book two as soon as I finished book one there was no way I could rest until I got to the end.
In the first book the plot goes from the current then alternate to back in time to when she first met her husband which was brilliantly done and the intimate scenes sizzling. As the books progressed onto book 2 then 3 etc there are alternate povs and you see a bigger picture more perspective to the whole story and more twists. I was in ase of the creativity behind this story.
I went from thinking this was the story of two people who have lost their way since being married to not even being able to summarise this book at all and all I can say is read it and be wowed.
"The bond between us, once so real—so tangible, I believed in it with every ounce of my being—is now in tatters."

Charm is the key to the world.
Charisma, magnetism, sex appeal—that ‘it’ factor that can’t be described.
Nolan Delany has it is spades.
The infamous Mr. Romantic.
And maybe he is out of my league… But I’m going to give it the old college try anyway. Because I didn’t travel two thousand miles for a job interview at his request just to be put out like trash.
Don’t underestimate me, Mr. Delaney.
I’m really not as innocent as I look.
Mr Romantic? Hmm...
Nolan Delaney wasn't romantic at all and I couldn't understand where the name came from even though it was explained I still didn't get it because he was far from it.
I didn't like his character, maybe I wasn't supposed to like his character because of the underlining story that runs through the Mister series but I'll tell you why I didn't like him.
Nolan Delaney is in the process of setting up a resort in the desert or Vegas and is looking for marketing people to get his project off the ground.
Enter Ivy Rockwell.. Ivy has just finished college, she isn't the ideal candidate for the job, hasn't got enough experience for something this big but she receives an invitation to apply for the position, a private jet is waiting and it's all mysterious but why the heck not, she didn't apply but someone passed her details on somehow and what has she got to lose.
Nolan's sister is also overseeing the project and what a bitch she is but I digress, anyway when Nolan see's Ivy Rockwell he wants her and it has nothing to do with the job.
Nolan is a manipulator, a predator and to be honest he gave me the creeps, Ivy is drawn to him like a moth to a flame and as the story progresses he introduces Ivy who is the daughter of a pastor and also a virgin to fantasy rape play and acting out scenes but he doesn't swoon his way to that point with Ivy , he isn't even charming and I haven't a clue how Gullible Ivy got there, that's just in a nut shell.
I didn't like Nolan but there is a but and it's a big BUT
If you have started this series you will know that there is a THAT NIGHT.
A night the five misters at Browns university get arrested for gang rape. All five misters are let off eventually, not enough evidence to convict and we know they are innocent, a little was shared in Mr Perfect but in the eyes of the public they are guilty and from THAT NIGHT life changed for all of them, it's all still a mystery, none of them know they why or how even now but it's all still very real how life changed for all of them but who set them up?
In each of the Misters there is more clues as they come together in each book an event that takes place with Nolan and Ivy brings them all back together again even after more than 10 years someone is still out to get them, but who?
THAT NIGHT effected Mr Romantic aka Nolan Delaney and this story reflects how.
Did Nolan redeem himself at the end in my eyes? A little bit, I understood him more and I did get to the end of this book not wanting to call him an A-hole anymore but I still don't think he is Romantic and Ivy deserves someone more loving.
I want to follow this series through, I am more than curious about the answers and how THAT NIGHT will be revealed through the eyes of each Mister so I will have to see it through to the end to find out.
Brilliantly written by J.A Huss, I can't argue with that and the clever way she is carrying this plot through each book.
I listened on audio and intend to do a separate review re narration.

An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.
I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 - 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)
Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.
Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.
Turns out no isn’t an option.
I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)
When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.
He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.
I’m not supposed to make him look twice.
And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)
Falling for him is definitely a mistake.
Here’s the thing…
Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.
I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
GOODREADS LINK: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31179248-the-thing-about-love
And this is why I read romance.
I just love finishing a book with a happy sigh.
I enjoyed Jake and Jules journey to finding love.
Jules and Jake didn't have the best of first meetings though and it wasn't exactly insta love.
The thing about love begins with Jules also known as Juliette who is a wedding planner anxiously awaiting a client who is coming to view the incredible cake that has been made and to go over her wedding plans in the hope to get the job, money is tight and business is struggling so landing the wedding of the governors son to his fiance would be the turnaround Juliette needs.
When the handsome, hottie Jake walks in the shop and during conversation about the cake starts to flirt and begins to hit on her then a few minutes later a woman who Jules thinks his fiance walks in. Jules without thinking face plants him with cake, disgusted that a soon to be married man would act that way. When another male walks in behind her Jules knows she has made a mistake. Jake Kissinger is the bride to be's brother.
Jules and Jake are great characters. The truth about love, truly is a story of finding real love and not settling for less.
I reached around 50% before anything happened between Jake and Jules and to be honest I was losing interest but when they got it on, they really got it on.
Jake and Jules had so much chemistry between them, it was so hot.
The thing about love has humour, hotness Great characters, it's told in first person dual pov and leads to a heart warming hea.
Did I mention Jake Kissinger was a doctor too? a hot doctor?
Doctor Kiss meet my bbf shelf.
Another entertaining read by Kim Karr.

'Love can either destroy you, or bring you back to life.
Dom, Casa & Harlow
Casa only cares for two things in this life: his club—the Devil’s Highwaymen—and sex. That is until he meets Harlow. She’s feisty, passionate, and doesn’t fall for his usual charms. She’s perfect for him…but she belongs to someone else.
Harlow is broken; she has been for a long time. With nowhere to go, and worse, no one to go to, she’s become a clubslut for the West Side Bangers. That is until a chance meeting with her old friend and former lover, Dom, brings their worlds colliding together once more.
Dom is on a one-way train to hell; the guilt of losing his soulmate is killing him—but he can’t tell anyone about it. That is until he finds a brief respite from his suffering in the form of Harlow, the woman whose heart he once broke.
With all three set on their own self-destructive paths, they’ve only got one chance to make things right—but only if they can learn to forgive, and then to love again.
The funny thing about love is, it’s both painless and painful, and not even death can end the suffering.
I struggled with this one.
It's definitely a series you have to start from the beginning and even though I had read book one previously I was still trying to piece things together.
Main Characters are Dom, Harlow and Casa.
Ride or Die 2 begins with Dom rescuing Harlow from another club.
Harlow and Dom had grown up together and been together in a relationship but Dom even though he loved her had to let her go because he wasn't in love with her, Dom was in love with his best friend Butch. Harlow was a safe option and kept any suspicion away from him being gay.
Following Butch's death when Dom saw Harlow again he couldn't leave her or could stand that she was now just a club slut for another club and felt guilty for the life she now had.
Harlow was from an affluent family and because of her relationship with Dom they disowned her. Harlow has only had Dom for a long time until he let her go.
Unrequited love tore them apart but loyalty brought them back together.
Harlow, although she came across as a strong character she was also a doormat at times and it annoyed me how she caved easily and also how she accepted how both men treated her.
Now Casa, what a cocky character, also known as Casanova, he's a man slut, his view of women is for one use, sex, putting it bluntly he's single minded and a pig.
Once Casa meets sassy Harlow though it's game over for Casa and he falls hard.
Ride or Die 2 is about letting go, moving on, finding and accepting love and new beginnings all wrapped up in this gritty MC world.
Amongst club business, danger and enemies, Casa finds love something you never would think possible from his introduction, Dom starts to move on from Butch's death and gets his friend Harlow back and Harlow gets the love she deserves. A hea all round and no doubt Doms journey is to be continued.
I didn't bond with the characters, I nearly gave up a few times due to the characters behaviour, things said and the way the plot was but I stuck with it.
I read it, but can't say I enjoyed it
Music in my head, dance in my body, the rhythm of my heart.
How far can you fall in just one month? How quickly can the human spirit be broken? Where does evil hide in plain sight?
Ash wants to dance. Needs it. To leave behind a life of expectation and duty, to set his soul free.
But life is never that simple. Every step is a journey on a new road.
For every action, there is a reaction.
Every choice has a consequence.
And when you meet the wrong person, all bets are off.
Laney tolerates her limitations, pushing quietly at boundaries. But when Ash crashes into her world through rage and violence, it sets off a chain reaction that neither of them expected.
♫♪ ♫♪ ♫♪ ♫ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪♫♪
Wow! I was not expecting that.
5 my sunshine stars.
" With you I am reborn..."
What a journey.
Ash went from being a dancer with hopes and dreams, leaving his country of Slovenia and going to Las Vegas too.. in only a matter of weeks becoming a victim, helpless, tricked, and threatened by members of the Russian Bratva.
Slave to the Rhyhm is a gritty journey with dark and real life struggles and sutuations in the undertones that eventually finds the sunshine.
The sunshine is Laney.
Laney is on vacation for a girls weekend and stumbles on and witnesses something that changes events for both her and Ash.
Laney is wheelchair bound some days and suffers from Rheumatiod Arthritis and lives with a boyfriend that acts more of a carer than a lover. A weekend away and a weekend to show she is more dependant than her boyfriend gives her credit for turns into both a nightmare and a blessing.
I can't even sum up this beautiful but bitter sweet love story, Jane Harvey-Berrick is so creative, each book I read by this author I am taken on a journey with the characters and this has so many twists and turns that I never did end up where I predicted to be and that was from the first chapters.
Slave to the Rhythm is a dark and gritty read yet also a powerful love story.
Two people who save each other in two completely different situations and two people who unexpectedly become one.
Contains disturbing scenes, talks of rape and abuse but doesent go into descriptive detail, there's mafia involvement, danger and enough drama to make your breath hitch.
Not forgetting beautiful intimate scenes and amazing strong characters.

Each band member has a story of their own and this is Nik and Jenny's.
Jenny and Nik were teenage sweethearts, first loves, with hopes and dreams involving each other.
When Nik goes on his first tour and Jenny stays behind to continue her education she supports him and awaits his return but a one night stand caught by the press ends it all.
Jenny leaves and Nik never finds her.
Eight years later and the girl who herself was once in a foster home is now a worker for children in care.
The story starts with Jenny getting a new job in the town she once called home and the past is disclosed as the story progresses.
Nik and the band still support the group home they grew up in and are active with the boys on a regular basis whenever they are home from tour with the band, this is when Nik finds Jenny again.
The new worker who joins the group home he discovers is Jenny.
Eight years of wandering where Jenny went with no chance to apologize or explain is suddenly at Niks feet and it's time to grovel to get her back.
Nik and Jenny's reunion is awkward. Jenny is still full of hurt while Nik is full of regrets for his immature decisions all those years ago.
Nik is determined to get his Jenny back now he has found her and Jenny needs to let go and forgive.
Nikan Rebuilt is a heart warming journey with great characters, no angst or drama which is sometimes needed to keep you turning the pages, it felt like a middle book the bit inbetween, a character that needed to be covered but he wasn't as interesting as the others but the journey was sweet, Nik and Jenny's story needed to be told and it did lead to an overdue hea for Jenny and Nik.
A story of second chances, finding ones self, trust, healing and hope.
Told in third person dual pov. Third book in the series.

NIKAN REBUILT Excerpt
Copyright © 2017 Scarlett Cole
Nik took the towels out of her hands and placed them on the dryer. “Hey, come here,” he said as he reached for her hands. “Talk to me.”
She wasn’t ready to, not least because she didn’t understand the swirl of feelings sweeping through her. To put into words for Nik exactly how that felt was impossible. “I’m fine, I’m good. I just have a lot to do here now.”
Nik placed his finger under her chin and raised her eyes so she was forced to look at him. “I think we can safely say that lies have no place between us. So, I’ll tell you what I’m thinking, and then you can tell me what you’re thinking. Okay?”
Jenny sighed and nodded. “Okay.”
“I didn’t come here tonight expecting to kiss you like this. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about it, but I know I have a lot of work to do to prove myself to you. But seeing you laugh, and seeing you look at me, just for a moment, without the pain I caused you in your eyes . . . Well, I don’t even know how to begin to explain what that felt like to me—except that I didn’t want to be away from you for another moment, and that it felt like a new beginning of sorts. If there’s any doubt in your mind about what that kiss did to me, I’d encourage you to touch me and check, but I think that might be a step too far, given where we are. Now it’s your turn.”
His words made her stomach flip, and despite her best efforts she was filled with a warm and fuzzy feeling. She looked over to the staircase again to check that nobody was within earshot. “We’re coming at this new friendship . . . relationship . . . from two completely different places. I’m mad at myself for letting you get this close to me again. It’s reckless to fall for you all over again and I know it. But when you stand so close to me, I can . . .” Crap. How could she explain that the way the smell of him, and the heat of him, and the proximity of him, and the touch of him took her straight back to that time and place where she wholeheartedly loved him?
“You can what?” Nik asked, moving his hands to her hips.
“I can remember us. Before.”
Once a Disciple, forever a Disciple.
After the death of her father, Ash learned an important lesson: being a Disciple is dangerous. The club her father had loved, the club that had been their family, took him from her. She couldn’t stay and wait for the day it would take the man she loved from her, too. So, she left. Now, she’s the one in danger, and the Disciples are the only ones that can keep her safe. She has no choice but to return to the club and the man she left behind.
A Disciple will fight like a savage for what is his.
Sketch has what he needs: his tattooing, the club, and his bike. Anything else would require a heart, and his was ripped out of his chest a long time ago. It wasn’t coming back. At least, not until she did.
His heart isn’t the only thing Ash brings with her, though. She has a daughter. A daughter old enough to be his. A daughter Ash claims might not be. But in his heart, Sketch knows the truth. That little girl is his… just like her mom.
This biker knows one thing: a Disciple’s daughter’s return is about to make his whole world shift.
Sketch, Ash, and the whole Savage Disciples MC are now free on #KindleUnlimited!
A Disciple’s daughter’s return is about to make his whole world shift.
I loved this one and I m also loving this series, bossy bikers and women with backnbone.
A secret baby, a childhood to adult love story and a second chance romance, all my favourite things wrapped up in an MC read.
A bit about the plot;
When the club receives threats and the safety for one of their own is in jeopardy they all rally together and although Ash left four years ago the threats involve her and revolve around her fathers death too. following her fathers death and putting blame on the club and the life they live Ash left with no intention of ever returning.
Ash had been in love with Gabe who later became Sketch, they had both been childhood friends within the club and in their teenage years became more. Ash struggled in the days following her fathers death and wanted Gabe to run away with her, Gabe thought he had convinced her to stay until he woke up to find her gone.
That was four years ago.
When Ash returned after being brought back by one of the MC members not only did she have a frosty reception by Sketch but she wasn't alone. Ash had a beautiful little girl called Emmy.
“You don’t own me.” “Maybe not, but I own your heart. I know, because I gave you mine when I took it. You took off with it once and it hurt like hell, there’s no fucking way I’ll go through that again.”
I loved this story, Ash's possessiveness and determination to get Ash back. I enjoyed the ride and looking forward to the next book in the series.
Told in first persons dual pov and leads to a heartwarming hea.
Once a Disciple, forever a Disciple.
Cami was born into the Savage Disciples MC, but she ventured out to build a life of her own away from the club. She’s engaged now, living a new life despite missing the bikers that raised her. Overall, she’s… fine.
Sure, fine. She’s fine with the fiancé who is more interested in position and image than the woman in his life. She’s fine with the fake people around and the suffocating passive aggression. She’s fine with the fact that she is turning to drugs to self-medicate.
A Disciple will fight like a savage for what he wants.
When Gauge tags along to visit his club brother’s daughter, he can’t believe the two women he meets: the fiery daughter of a biker and the puppet with the blank affect. And yet, they’re both Cami.
He sees the fire beneath surface, and he wants to watch it burn. He wants to rip away the man smothering her like a wet blanket. He wants to see the flames consume that cookie-cutter future-wife facade to the ground and dance with her in the flames.
When this biker clutches onto a Disciple’s daughter, there is no letting go.
Who needs a gentleman? #GiveMeABiker
Clutch is out now!
"He unleashed something wild in me; something I hadn't even known was there".
This is the first book in the series but I have read another book previously. Each book can be read as a standalone. I love the family feel of the club and the characters in this series.
If your looking for a bossy alpha biker and lots of angst then you've found it.
I liked all the characters from the club and the plot had a perfect balance of hotness, club business and angst.
There's no unnecessary violence or sexual acts in this book, I'm mentioning this because sometimes that's what you get in an MC read but the Savage disciples are a family club and have legit businesses, yes there's angst, yes there's drama and dirty mouthed bikers which I love and Cami and Clutch have a lot going on to keep you entertained.
Being a bikers daughter Cami is more than capable of holding her own, I liked her sass and she is a good match for Gauge.
A bit about the plot..
When Cami first meets Gauge he's accompanying Cami's father on a visit with his daughter where she lives with her stuck up fiance who tells her what to wear and expects her to go meet with other women in the country club playing the dutiful fiance. Cami went from college girlfriend to being arm candy and controlled.
Cami soon realised after her father and Gauge's visit that she's living a lie, not only does she feel an immediate connection with Gauge but something Gauge says awakens something in her, that she is trying to be someone she isn't.
Cami eventually leaves her fake life and cheating fiance and returns home, immediately the bossy alpha biker claims her and the bumpy road for Cami and Gauge begins.
I enjoyed the angst, some things had me annoyed mainly the actions of the characters or little things like the direction the plot went but all in all a good MC read that I couldn't put down and read in one sitting.

***FULL LENGTH STANDALONE READ WITH HEA***
Warning - Contains coarse language and sexual content. This book is recommended for 18 years and over.
My name is Carter Reynolds. I was born a bastard and I'll die a bastard. I learnt it at a young age, and nothing and nobody can change that. I'm on a one-way path of destruction, and God help anyone who gets in my way. I hate my life. Actually, I hate pretty much everything.
That's until I meet the kid next door. Indi-freakin'-ana. My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me. She makes me feel things I thought I was incapable of feeling. I don't like it, not one bit. When she looks at me with her big, beautiful, haunting green eyes, it's like she can see into the depths of my soul. It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I hate sunshine and rainbows.
I'm Indiana Montgomery. My friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life and great friends. My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent. I'm his little girl, the centre of his world. I adore him.
When Carter Reynolds moves in next door, my life takes a turn for the worse. He's gorgeous, sinfully hot, but that's where my compliments end. He seems hell-bent on making my life miserable. He acts tough, but when I look into his eyes I don't see it. I see hurt and pain. To me, he seems lost.
I should hate him for the way he treats me, but surprisingly I don't. If anything, I feel sorry for him. I want to help him find peace. Help him find the light that I know is buried somewhere within his darkness, but he won't have a bar of it.
He's warned me time and time again to stay away, but I can't. I'm drawn to him for some reason. He's always referring to himself as a bastard. That may be true, but to me, he's more like a beautifully misunderstood bastard. Whether he likes it or not, I refuse to give up on him.
Carter and Indiana's story is told in dual POV, and in two parts, spanning over 8 years.

Not what I expected at all.
Carter is a teenager with a mountain of anger inside him and a huge chip on his shoulder.
Indi is the sweet new next door neighbour.
I couldn't understand why such a heartfelt story had a title such as Bastard giving the impression of a book that is the complete opposite of what I read but it all stems from when Carters mom takes him to see his Grandparents, his mothers parents who she herself hasn't seen from the time they threw her out when she was pregnant. The 5 year old Carter excited to see his Grandparents for the first time is shooed away and called a bastard child.
Words hurt and words can change a person's view of life or path in life and that's exactly what it did for Carter, well until he met Indi.
Carter and Indi first meet when Carters mum moves home to move in with her new boyfriend, a boyfriend Carter hates. Carter is rude and insulting to Indi when they first meet and it doesn't stop there his new mission is to get a rise out of his Princess next door.
A love hate relationship develops between them.
Carter, I can't say he is adorable in his teenage years, he's cocky and he definitely has a big chip on his shoulder and living with someone who treats him like scum when his mother isn't around you can't help but feel for him when he already see's little value in himself.
Carter is on count down for his eighteenth birthday when he can leave.
Indi however is sweet she is the daughter of a Police officer and after her mom died of a brain tumour she had only her dad left and they have a beautiful father daughter relationship.
Bastard is a story in two parts, the teen years and then years later when Indi and Carter are reunited. This is an eight year journey of two people who were meant to be together and you get all their ups and downs, the sad times and happy times, the heartfelt and heartbreaking moments.
"I find myself wishing for a lifetime of moments with her. My heart burns for her. It always has, and it always will".
"She’s my addiction, my air".
Bastard is hot in all the right places with lovable main and extended characters. I laughed shed a tear, swooned and got annoyed, Bastard really is a roller-coaster of emotions.
Bastard is many things in one perfect package, A fr-enemies to lovers romance, A second chance romance, teenage to adulthood love story, A tear jerker and heart-warmer.
I enjoyed Indi and Carters journey that does eventually lead to a hea that makes you smile.

When I read that this was an ugly cry read which would normally bother me, I jumped in anyway because I am loving this authors work, each book I read is another Journey.
Playing in the Rain is indeed another journey with the lives of two people but it wasn't just a tearjerker, I was actually left with snot and tears and felt the whole experience including the heartbreak.
Did I enjoy it though even though I feel heartbroken?
Definitely, YES!. I've found books like this that draw out all the emotions stick with you, and Playing in the rain will definitely stay with me and not just be another book on my shelf.
It's very rare I give a five star to a short read but this wasn't lacking in anything and did actually feel too long or too short, it was perfect.
A bit about the plot;
When Ava Lawton walks out of her job and is stuck in a long line if traffic, it's just another kick to an already horrible day, it's pouring with rain and things cant get any worse but this is when she first sees Cody standing near the park with a dog, the rain isn't bothering him and there's something about him that draws Ava to him.
There eyes meet and Cody runs over to give her a note that reads YOUR BEAUTIFUL.
Ava goes to find her mystery man the next day at the park and from there I was taken on an amazing adventure with Ava and Cody, it was heart warming and then heart breaking.
"Tell me about Cody Richard's what's he really like"?.
"He's just a regular guy"
" You glow, your all glowy"
"I think that's the loco weed talking"
“No, it’s you. That’s what you’re like. You glow and you’re all light. Everyone sees it. You’re like sunshine—with a great ass.”
Such a beautiful love story.

THE CONCLUDING STORY of Aimee and Kestrel, begun in THE TRAVELING MAN
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
How many times do you gamble on love? When love has knocked you down, should you give it another chance? When does optimism become stupidity?
And what happens when the man you’re in love with is never still, always moving, always traveling? Do you say goodbye, or do you leave behind everything that you’ve worked for, everything that you’ve ever known? Can a traveling carnival be my home?
Oh. You thought I had the answers. No, sorry. No answers, just a lot of questions—and a heart that wants to rule my head.
Can one person be my home?
START THIS MAGICAL DUET TODAY
Aimee is eight years old when she meets carnie kid Kestrel. Over the years, friendship grows to something more.
"When I was near him I burned."
Please note this is part two in The travelling series duet and The Travelling man is to be read first. And what a journey it was.
Book one finished with the Aimee's uncertainty of fitting into Kestrel's world and being a part of his life, no more secrets or anything withheld, Aimee wanted all or nothing and Kes is such a stubborn character.
Kestrel was aptly named, he lived to fly, to soar in the spotlight and book two deals with how both Aimee and Kes fight to make it work with his life in the carnival.
"I was ordinary, and he was extraordinary"
Two worlds colliding.
"Our lives were thousands of miles apart, and our dreams didn't seem to be any closer together either. Something would have to give or rather one if us would have to give"
The Travelling woman was so much more than just two people trying to figure how to make love work, it was a beautiful but also a treacherous journey against the odds.
Once again I laughed, shed a tear, gripped on through the angst and felt my heart melt over and over.
Kes is a fiery character, he's many things, he's Moody, talented, hot, sometimes a jerk, insatiable, an alpha domineering male and you can't help but fall in love with him, and Aimee, it was like she was put on the earth to love him.
I had similar feelings throughout this book similar to those I felt when I read Real by Katy Evans, Thoughtless by S.C Stephens and Crash by Nicole Williams, all great books and this Duet has joined them on my recommended shelf.
This duet is a roller-coaster ride of emotions that I can't recommend enough. You need to meet Kes, I haven't read a character like him in a while, I'm even willing to share ;-)
I loved him and I hope you will to.
Although I'm sad to let Kes and Aimee go I would definitely read more in this series I also loved the other carnival characters.
Told in Aimee's pov. Leads to a hea. Available in KU.
""With me always?"
"Until the world's stops turning."
I was ordinary. Nice. He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice.
Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t.
Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path.
Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life.
As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough.

Wow! I fell in love with these characters from the beginning and I felt every part of their journey.
Brilliant writing and story from Jane Harvey-Berrick.
Kes and Aimee first meet when they are 10 years old. Kes is a part of the circus that has come into town and Aimee is visiting with her parents.
A friendship blossomed from their first moments together and from there spans on for years.
Aimee lived for the two weeks a year she got to spend with Kes. From the times the posters went up around town about the circus coming to town each year I actually got excited for her.
From childhood to teenage years, Aimee battles against her stuck up narrow minded parent's and distance but they make it work until they become two helpless kids fighting a losing battle.
Eight years later now both adults Kes and Aimee are reunited.
A story in two parts, I loved the innocence of the characters in the first part, the sexual experiments and experiences being each other's firsts, two people's journey to falling in love.
The second part I was gripped by the angst, indesision and uncertainty of where the plot would go.
I do love a childhood to adult romance and although that's exactly what Kes and Aimee had it's so much more.
It's a love against all odds, two worlds either colliding or blending, a love that is destined to be but will heart or head rule?.
It was a rollercoaster of emotions for me, I laughed, felt sad, felt the angst and felt the chemistry.
I wasn't sure if I would like the topic being around travellers and circus, it didn't really appeal to me but having read this book I can tell you it's an epic love story, a journey with two people destined to be together, underlining messages, heartache and heart warming moments.
Told in Aimee's pov and leads you to an ending that makes you want to jump into book two immediately.
Available in KU.
I've already downloaded book two and can't wait to see where Aimee and Kes's journey ends, im both scared and excited.
Emily Michaels lives a life of privilege and prestige. She’s been afforded luxuries that most girls dream about but it’s only attributed to her lonely existence. Due to her disability, Emily doesn’t feel like she belongs in the elusive world she’s grown up in.
That all changes her senior year when she meets Ryder Jameson, the tattooed bad boy who takes her breath away with a simple touch. A boy her parents would never approve of due to his lack of wealth and social status, but that doesn’t stop her from being with him.
Ryder makes her feel beautiful in a way no one else ever has. For the first time in her life, Emily finally feels like she belongs. Until the day her world comes crashing down, destroying the one chance she had at being happy.
FBI agent Ryder Jameson has been given the opportunity to run one of the largest undercover operations of his career. The case that gets tossed in his lap will take him back to the town he swore he would never return to and to the only girl who has ever mattered to him.
Ryder plans to not only bring down the corruption that has poisoned his hometown but he will also take back the one girl who was stolen from him when he was just seventeen years old.
Ryder and Emily come from a world where politics separates them and wealth defines them, but they will not let it divide them.
This is their story.
“You see me, Em, far better than anyone else ever has.
This is one of those books I have had on my kindle a long time so when I found it and read it, it was like discovering hidden treasure. I loved this book, Beautifully Insightful contained everything I love in a book.
Beautiful Insightful started off as a beautiful love story with Ryder Jameson the boy from the other side of the track and Emily Michael's, a blind girl and daughter of the Senators both falling for each other against the odds.
When Emily's disproving father threatens to ruin Ryder's friends business, a guy who had taken him under his wing because of his dead beat parents and threats of Emily's well being Ryder had no choice but to leave for college and let Em go.
Emily was devastated that she never heard from Ryder again when he was supposed to meet her and was fed lies by her father.
6 years later Ryder has made something of himself, an FIB agent working on a human trafficking case that takes him back to his home town to the man that threatened him as a teenage boy and to the beautiful blind girl he loved and left behind.
"I never saw you as trash, Ryder. I saw you as a boy who fought against the world because the odds were stacked against him".
A brilliant story that had me enraptured from the first pages and as the story progressed I was even more entranced with the danger and twists and turns.
Fan me down hot in all the right places, has a swoon worthy dominant Alpha male, told in first persons dual pov, leads to a heartwarming hea.

Emily walks Cece to the door. “Thanks for…” She trails off as it opens. “Richard,” she greets in surprise to someone who’s standing on the other side of the door.
Richard? Who the fuck is Richard?
“Emily, are you all right?” I hear a second before some motherfucker walks in and wraps Emily in his arms.
What. The. Fuck!
I shoot up off the couch, my blood boiling hot, wondering who the fuck this asshole is that’s holding my woman.
Cece is the only one who notices my sudden change and smirks. “Actually, I may not have to rush out after all,” she mumbles, amused.
Emily steps back from the prick and shoots a nervous glance my way. “Yes, of course I’m okay. What are you doing here?”
“Joanne just told me what happened. She said you wouldn’t be at work for a little while and I had to see for myself that you were all right,” he replies while intimately running his knuckles down the side of her soft cheek.
My motherfuckin’ cheek!
“Oh, well yes, I…” I cut her off when I yank her back and stand in front of her.
The prick’s head cranes back and his eyes widen in surprise, clearly only now registering that I’m in the room. His gaze narrows as he takes in my possessive stance. “Excuse me, and who are you?”
“I’m the guy that’s going to lay you out if you put your fucking hands on her again.”
Emily gasps. “Ryder, stop it!”
“Bring on the popcorn.” Cece chuckles, finding something fucking amusing.
I watch the asshole’s gaze roam over my tattoos in distaste. “Emily, how do you know this criminal?”
“Criminal? I’ll show you criminal, motherfucker.”
Emily jumps in front of me as I start at him. “Ryder, I mean it, back off! And, Richard, stop the insults. He is not a criminal, he is a friend of mine.”
Friend? Oh I don’t think so. She is not going to play the fucking friend card!
Just as I’m about to explode and lose all control, Cece jumps in and pats the dick on the back. “All right, I’m going to do you a favor here, Richard, and save your life. Come on now, let’s go.” She tries leading him out but he throws her hand off in annoyance.
“I’ll see you at work, Emily. Call me if you need anything,” he grinds out before storming off.
Cece clears her throat. “Well, it’s been entertaining to say the least. I’ll check ya guys later.” She quickly closes the door, leaving me with a really pissed off Emily. Good, because I’m pissed off too.
“What the hell is the matter with you?” she snaps, stomping past me.
I ignore her question and ask one of my own. “I want to know, right fucking now, who that asshole was!”
“He’s a doctor at the rehabilitation clinic I work at.”
“He sure seemed a lot friendlier than a co-worker by the way he was touching you!”
“Not that it’s any of your business, Ryder, but he’s also my ex. We dated for awhile and remained friends.”
That has my rage jacking to a whole new level. It shouldn’t surprise me she has dated, it has been six years, but I don’t like it. Not one fucking bit! Before I can think better of it I let my anger get the best of me, and point my finger at her. “You are not going back to that fucking job when this is over. Got it?”
She gapes at me, aghast. “Excuse me?”
“You heard me. My woman is not working with her ex, Mr. McFucking Touchy!”
“You listen here, Ryder Jameson!” She snaps my full name. “First of all, I am not your woman!”
What? Did she really just fucking say that?
“And secondly, no one, and I mean no one, tells me what I can and can not do! So put your dick back in your pants, and quit trying to piss on me and mark territory that doesn’t belong to you!”
That’s fucking it! She turns to storm out of the room but I’m quicker. Grabbing her around the waist, I spin her around, pick her up and slam her against the wall. Then I stake my fucking claim.
Wanting the perfect man doesn’t make me crazy. I just know what I like.
A powerful billionaire in a suit wasn’t even my first choice. McAllister Stonewall was never on my radar, I didn’t even know he existed.
But I do now.
His hands are all over me at work. The heat of his chest pressing against my bare back as he bends me over the desk is the only thing on my mind.
He is my most forbidden desires unleashed. He is my new secret obsession. He is my Mr. Perfect.
Until the moment I realize… There’s no such thing as perfect.

A hot, sexy and fun read.
I loved the characters, Ellie is likeable and often hilarious, I loved a scene where she escapes the board room through embarrassment and dives down a slide from the seventh floor, her skirt rides up and her legs start sticking and she has to crawl the rest of the way, I was in stitches with that scene.
Mr Perfect is not what I expected at all and Mac is not your typical CEO boss, hot and sexy yes but definitely not typical.
A fun read, I loved it and it was sooo hot!
JA Huss talks about all the other Mr books at the end and how each one will reveal more of the past of each that links them all together so in each you find out more, then the last book a full reveal or redemption finish, im not sure but It sounds intriguing and addictive.
Each Mr Perfect can be read as a standalone and each romance leads to a hea. Told in first person dual pov.
I listened this in audio and it was brilliantly narrated.
