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.

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

📚

(Click the Cover below to order a copy of ‘Wild & Sweet’ Now)

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)’:

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! ❤

The Synopsis:

Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘RIOT’:

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

“Riot” is the forth novel in the Scarred Souls Series by the amazing Author Tillie Cole. This novel delivers emotional depth, a riveting story-line, enthralling characters, and everything we love most about this series. Riot is told from three main character’s P.O.V’s (Point of views) which belong to 152, 901, and Luka.

She is only known as 152. Most of her past is a mystery, her present is questionable, and her future is uncertain especially now that she’s become the “Mona” to a ruthless and dangerous man they call Master. Small flashes of memories surface in 152’s mind but still she can’t piece together where she’s from or who she really is. All she can do as try to survive the dark life that she is forced to live. Will her life always be controlled by the hands of the sadistic Master? Will she be able to survive this empty and painful life or is there more to her story?

901 is Master’s winning fighter. He brings violence, pain, and death to everyone who enters The Blood Pit to face off with him. 901 knows he holds a little control as the Master’s prized fighter but he never gives Master what he wants, which is to draw out the fights so they last long enough to be entertaining. Master must give his possession that is obsessed with to his prized money-maker to make sure his evil Kingdom stays strong. The evil Master never expected what comes next. Will 901 be able to resist the threat Master sends his way? Can 901 survive the ultimate fight of his life?

Luka Tolstoi was known as “818” and fought till the death, once upon a time. Now, his life consists of family and the love of his life, his pregnant wife Kisa. He has become a leader and close friend, practically brothers, with Zaal and Valentin who also knew the life in the gulag and the dark underground world they escaped. Between the three, they must come up with the greatest plan to rescue Valentin’s sister from that underground world and destroy that world once and for all. It won’t be easy. It will actually be very dangerous and difficult, but they are family and this family will do anything they can for each other. When faced with the mission ahead, Luka as well as Zaal and Valentin might just have to revive their inner beasts in order to bring down the Master, once and for all. Will Luka be able to turn on the beast inside without losing himself to it completely? Will their plan work or are they destined to fall?

In the final installment of the Scarred Souls Series, we get to know two more beautiful, broken, and scarred souls simply known by the numbers that were given to dehumanize them.  We still get to hear from Luka, Kisa, Talia, Zaal, Zoya, and Valentin from the previous novels of the series. Valentin is determined to rescue his sister from the evil imprisonment that he and the other two former fighters escaped from. In order to rescue his sister they must come up with a plan. On top of that they all want to put an end to that twisted underground world and bring down Master once and for all. I highly recommend this novel and this series! It’s so dark and twisted, but the raw emotional journey these characters take make you crave to see them rise above the life they were forced to live for so long and defeat that darkness. You should definitely read this one asap! It’s so worth it!

**Content Warning**: Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, excessive violence, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

1-cover-1

The Synopsis:

They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me.

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared.

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream.

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it feels…familiar.

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘A BOY LIKE YOU’ by Ginger Scott:

A Boy Like You is the latest novel by the amazing author Ginger Scott. Ginger said that this novel was a little different than her previous work and I have to say she has struck gold with this one. Once I completed reading this, one thought came to mind: Mind blown! This novel is a part of the Young Adult genre and is a Contemporary Romance but honestly, this story goes beyond those general genres with its amazing delivery. A Boy Like You is written from the main character’s P.O.V.(Point of view), Josselyn “Joss” Winters.

Josselyn Winters lived a normal childhood full of fun memories with her best Taryn. It started off as a normal day hosting fun races with her friends Taryn and Kyle, their fellow classmates, and even the weird-quiet kid Christopher. Her world of normal was all shattered one day when she hears her parents arguing in their room. It rips Josselyn’s world apart. When a terrible ordeal puts Josselyn in danger, an unexpected hero rescues her from what could have become a tragedy. But as quickly as he becomes her safety he just as quickly disappears.

Josselyn, now 17, isn’t the same girl she was 8 years ago. She’s a great shortstop softball player and tends to make risky choices from time to time. She has a broken and terrible relationship with her father. She meets some guys at the nearby baseball field with her best friend Taryn and it ends up being a fun meet up. Joss and Taryn’s interests are piqued when they find out that the three guys will be attending their school this year. One boy in particular draws Josselyn’s interest the most. He’s quiet, confident, and Josselyn can’t help her attraction to this new enigma named Wes Stokes.

For Joss, there’s something very intriguing about the new guy Wes. And there is something strangely familiar about him, as she gets to know him better. He reminds her of someone she used to know a long time ago.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘A BOY LIKE YOU’

Josselyn’s thoughts:  When I was younger, I would fall asleep imagining him holding me, tugging my blanket tightly around my body to feel safe -the way I felt in his arms, in the only real hug I’d ever had. I haven’t done that in years…until last night.

Josselyn’s thoughts on Wes:  His eyes stay on me for a few more seconds, and I dive into them, finding the familiar. I don’t even care if it’s make believe at this point. I’m overcome with his strength and the feel of his embrace, and I do something that I regret the moment it starts.
I cry.

Wes and Joss:  “I love the way you see me. I do,” he says, his breath held until the last second when he painfully exhales, and his shoulders fall along with his hand from my face. “You make me want to live up to your expectations. I’m afraid I’ll disappoint them, thought.”
“I don’t have any expectations. Wes. I learned about disappointment a long time ago. I just wanted you to know I appreciate what you did. that’s all,” I say.

Synopsis for COLE’:

I shouldn’t have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…
Cole Mauricio

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘COLE’:

“Cole” is the latest novel from author TIJAN. If you’re familiar with the amazing Carter Reed Series, you’ll absolutely want to read this. This novel falls into the genres of new adult and dark contemporary romance. It definitely offers a satisfying amount of suspense as well. Cole is written in the main character P.O.V’s(Point of views) of Addison Bowman and Cole Mauricio.

Addison moved to Chicago two years earlier with her husband Liam and their dog Frankie. When her world was hit by a heartbreaking incident, she had to do her best not to fall apart. Her best friend Sia finds a place for Addison, she considers the move. The place Sia found is an exclusive, beautiful building simply called “The Mauricio.” To escape the ghosts and the loneliness, Addison decides to make the move. She has no idea how much her life would change from this point on. Will Addison be able to regain her life? How will this move change her world?

Cole Mauricio is the leader of a very powerful and dangerous Mafia Family. He lived and survived during a war between the Mauricio family and the Bertal family, barely. He tries to keep some small portion of normalcy in his life with the well-protected and private apartment building that he owns. When he meets his newest tenant, his attraction to her is alluring but also dangerous in a completely different way. Will the peace between the families continue or will something break that rocky peace apart?

“Cole” is a compelling novel that definitely can be read as a stand-alone but is more pleasurable if you read The Carter Reed novels prior. It’s fascinating to see familiar characters from Tijan’s “Carter Reed” story intertwine in this latest novel. This story-line truly delivers on a blossoming romance, with seductive characters, and the fast-paced action and suspense. I recommend this alluring read for those who can enjoy a lot of sexy romance tied into the Mafia world. And for fans of The Carter Reed and Cole novels, you’ll be excited to hear that a Carter Reed 3 novel is coming soon! So be ready. As for “Cole,” you should for sure not pass this one up! 🙂

The Synopsis:

A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore’s hidden wild side and knows she’s his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.

Vivienne’s determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she’s built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv’s plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club’s clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society’s walk and talk society’s talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He’s proud of who he is and where he came from, and he’ll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

This book is approximately 105,000 words

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading Rough & Tumble (Haven Brotherhood Series book #1)’:

Rough & Tumble is the a part of the brand new series called Haven Brotherhood Series by author Rhenna Morgan. It has dangerously-exciting and entertaining factors that extend throughout the entire story-line. There is a great blend of romance, suspense, and sexiness that will please readers who can enjoy and appreciate these aspects in a good story. Rough & Tumble is written in the P.O.V’s (Point of views) of the main characters Vivienne and Jace.

Vivienne “Viv” Moore is trying to build her business while constantly having to rescue her wild younger sister Callie from her bad choices. Their childhood wasn’t perfect but Vivienne tries hard to make sure that she doesn’t let that shape her life now. On one of the nights where she has to rescue Callie, she comes across a very dark and dangerously-attractive man named Jace. Just the eye contact alone makes her feel things she never has before.

Jace Kennedy is a part of a group called The Brotherhood. Aside from that, he’s very rich and runs multiple successful businesses with his Brotherhood family. He finds himself living on the edge at times because of the occasional dangerous people he comes in contact with. There is just something about Vivienne that seems to draw him toward her. Jace wants to know more about her but as he gets closer to her, they find that threats to him run the risk of touching her life, too.

Is someone on a mission to destroy everything Jace has worked hard to build? Will Vivienne find her own success in her life or will she be drug down by disastrous choices that her sister Callie puts herself in? Will Vivienne learn about what the Brotherhood is? Rough & Tumble is an enthralling and incredible novel with stunning characters like Vivienne and Jace, as well as characters that are sure to make bigger appearances in this fresh new series. I recommend this for readers who can appreciate an entertaining read, with a great sexy-romantic story-line, and for those who enjoy some suspense intertwined. Check this one out and add to your reading list for sure! 😉
