The Synopsis:

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

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

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

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

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

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #5):

*May contain Character Spoilers(Not story Spoilers) if you haven’t read the previous novels of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

The completely dark and gritty Hades Hangmen MC Series continues with the fifth installment titled “Damnable Grace” by the always amazing and talented author Tillie Cole. This series continues to deliver such depth, raw-emotional dialogue, and a captivating story-line that can break your heart one moment, then revive it fully the next. As always, I will do my best not to ruin any of the plot twists or spoil any of the big moments for you readers. It’s best and more fulfilling to experience it all on your own. This novel follows one of the wild Hangmen trio known as “AK” to his MC brothers and it also follows the cult sister Phebe. The story is written from the three character’s P.O.V.’s (point of views) of Phebe, Xavier “AK” Deyes, and some from Flame.

The Hades Hangmen MC Brothers are out to rescue the sister of one of their old ladies and to bring down the the twisted group who has imprisoned them. The MC must face off against the ruthless Aryan Brotherhood clan that has descended to their part of Texas. AK can’t seem to get the beautiful cult female with the red hair out of his mind. As he and the other Hades Hangmen MC brothers dig deeper into finding out where Phebe is, they discover the very dark place they’ll have to go to in order to bring them down and rescue her. How can they do this dangerous mission without suffering too many risks to the MC? As they plan, it seems  likely that they’ll have to infiltrate in order to bring their sick enemies down.

Phebe had one duty for the commune which was to lure and entice new men to join the cult by seducing them. That was until the cult gave Phebe to their business associate by the name of Meister. The evil and violent commander Meister now owns her in his controlling and terrorizing ways. All Phebe can do is hope that those that she loves are far away from this hell. Will Phebe ever escape her current hell or will she die under the pain she lives daily? How will her past touch her present life and will the truth of that past be destroyed along side of her?

Flame is still Flame. The only person that has been able to break through his dark exterior is Maddie. His newfound little brother Asher means a lot to him since he was found but Flame isn’t familiar with normal feelings and expressions of those feelings. He continues to struggle to get closer to his brother, his only family outside of his biker brothers. With the troubles the Hangmen find themselves facing, he may face that moment. Will he be able to?

The Hades Hangmen MC are violent and vengeful when the situation requires it but now they must face off with something worse. A clan of cruel and brutal racist abusers who see the MC as an enemy. This dark Contemporary Romance will leave you holding on tight to your feelings and take you on a gripping ride! 😉 There is a special little bonus at the end, so definitely be on the look out after Damnable Grace ends. I highly recommend this novel and series. These characters and the story-line constantly grip the readers attention and never lets go until the end. “Damnable Grace” is very dark, heartbreaking and touches on twisted situations but the emotional depth intertwined keeps you wanting to continue their journey. Reader Warning: It touches on sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault and some brutal violence. This is such an enthralling series! It’s definitely a Must read! ❤

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, abuse, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics.
Recommended for age 18 years and over.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM DAMNABLE GRACE’:

Devin (Deyes brothers):  “You got no idea what it’s like out there, X. You got no fucking idea.”
“I wanna fight, Dev. I… I wanna fight for our country, like you. I.. I fucking wanna be like you, Dev. Always have.”
He’d saved us. Pulled us outta the damn gutter.
He was my motherfucking hero.
“I wanted better for you, kid.”
“Fighting alongside you, for our country and freedom? That’s as good as it goddamn gets.”

Phebe to AK:  “You,” she said again, a new lightness in her voice. Her fingers ran over my lips, then up, stopping at my eyes.
“The one with the kind eyes,” she murmured. Her head tilted to the side like an innocent child.
“You would not kill me. I deserved to die, but you would not kill me… because you had kind eyes.
A devil’s man with angel eyes.”

AK and Phebe:  “It ain’t gonna be easy, Red, but you gotta eat something.” He pointed to me. “Right now you’re a bag of bones.”
I gasped as I stared at the girl in the mirror. Her skin was dull and gray.
Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection. AK had called me “Red“.
The color of my hair.
I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips.
Not Phebe. Not “whore”… but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.

Phebe and AK:  “My freckles. My millions of freckles stand out against my pale skin like neon lights in the fire’s glow. I always disliked them.”
“Look up. Look up at the sky.” I said again. She did.
“There are so many stars,” she whispered.
“Imagine the sky without them.”
“Why would I do that? They make the sky so pretty. They are the reason people stargaze. To see their beauty.”
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

AK’s thoughts:  And with every mile made, I let me hatred of Meister build inside me- fuel to this fucking mission. Or massacre, I thought to myself. I’d make him pay, strip his flesh and slice through his guts. And as I looked to my left and right, Flame and Viking by my side, I knew they’d be with me too.

Story Quote: “Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

Title: WILD & SWEET

Series: Haven Brotherhood Series (book #2)
Publishing date: April 10th, 2017 (Review based on an ARC copy)

The Synopsis:

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs.

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn’t always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.

Zeke doesn’t play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he’s exactly what she needs in her life. He’ll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.

When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading Wild & Sweet (Haven Brotherhood Series book #2)’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Haven Brotherhood Series.***

Wild & Sweet is the 2nd installment in the exciting Haven Brotherhood Series by the fantastic author Rhenna Morgan. This dangerously provocative novel offers a perfect blend of romance, alluring dialogue, and suspenseful drama to keep you entertained from beginning to the end. It nestles itself comfortably in the Contemporary Romance genre. Wild & Sweet is written from the P.O.V.’s (point of views) of the 2 main characters of this novel, Gabrielle “Gabe” and Zeke.

Gabrielle “Gabe” Parker was raised by her father and brother, Danny. Where most young women in there 20’s are busy dating and going out with friends, Gabe spends most of her time working on cars at the garage she works at. Ever since she was younger, she’s had to deal with abandonment issues because of her mother and anxiety that she had from her experiences at school growing up. The last things on her mind are dating or changing the comforts of the sheltered life she’d been living. So when her brother’s friend comes around, her thoughts and feelings surprise her. On top of that, someone is stirring trouble in her quite neighborhood, who can help to put an end to it?

Zeke Dugan is always on the go. He rarely allows himself a chance to sit still by choice. Being a trauma doctor, it fits right into his lifestyle. Being a brother in The Haven Brotherhood, he’s pretty satisfied with life with that family and has never felt like he needed anything more. That was true up until he met Danny’s sister Gabrielle. There’s just something about her innocence, the mystery in her eyes, and her natural beauty. Even with her resistance of the idea, he decides that he won’t give up on trying to show her that he’s someone that she can trust.

Wild & Sweet is an entertaining ride with a fantastic blend of romance, emotional moments, and suspense that comes with the Haven brotherhood. The men of the Haven Brotherhood are irresistible, protective of those they care about, and irresistibly-enticing! I recommend this novel and series! You won’t be disappointed. Check this one out soon! ❤

The Synopsis:

Tyler (TY)

Football is life.
Growing up, my family loved to cheer me on, and after my parents accident, I vowed to be the best I could be to honor their memory. After a while, life starts to pile up though, college, football, and helping out my brothers. I just need a small reprieve, especially if she’s five foot five, brunette and has legs that go on for miles.
Fun is fun… Not like anyone’s going to fall in love.

Kadence

Star football player….. Check.
Spoiled brat….. Check.
Just when I think I have Tyler Owen’s all figured out; he knocks me on my ass, literally.
I wasn’t expecting him to help me up, or the little shock that I felt when we touched, but then I didn’t think I’d fall in love either.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘1st TIME LOVE’ by Sapphire Knight:

This is the first novel in the new Dirty Down South Series by Author Sapphire Knight. It’s titled “1st Time Love” and falls into the genres of Contemporary Sports Romance and is a New Adult novel. This novel is written from the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are Kadence and Tyler.

Kadence Winters is a naturally beautiful college girl who chooses to focus on getting to class more than getting to the weekend’s big party spot. Her best friend Brianne is her polar opposite but that has never put a dent in their friendship. Kadence, being the somewhat clumsy girl that she is, runs into another student in the hall. When she realizes that it’s Tyler Owens, the very attractive, flirty classmate who probably never knew she existed, who also happens to be a very valuable player on the football team, she can’t help but be shocked to find out he’s actually a gentleman and not everything that she assumed he was.

Tyler “Freight Train” Owens is lucky #12 on the team at Alabama, and his southern charm has never failed him when it comes to the ladies. On the field he’s earned his name “Freight Train” because of his amazing football defensive skills. His family consists of just him and his two older brothers who look out for each other, even more so ever since their parents passed away. His future looks bright and promising. He had no idea that his life would change after a simple run-in down the hall with a girl named Kadence Winters. He, literally and figuratively, never saw her coming his way.

“1st Time Love” is a delightful and entertaining story about finding your first love in a person that is different than what you would’ve expected. They are more than what you could’ve never imagined. The main characters, Kadence and Tyler, are well written and draw you into their story in an enjoyable and beautiful way. There are characters in here that you know are meant to cause issues but the author does well with not making this become a typical drama. That was a great thing! Since this is a series, I’m hoping to see what happens with the other Owens brothers and even the one character that was the definite villain in this story-line. I recommend this if you’re searching for a fantastic romance novel to read. Give this one a read! ❤
