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.

Trevor Raines lives on the edge of legal. A good guy doing bad things to save lives, the only rules he follows are the Brotherhood’s, and there’s nothing in the world that will change that. Until Natalie Jordan walks into his life…

Natalie’s only interest is in making a fresh start. She’s a woman with a plan, and the plan doesn’t include a man with secrets, no matter how kind—or intoxicating—he is. But this cowboy is determined to break down her walls, keep her safe and make her his.

Trevor had no interest in settling down, but there’s something entirely too appealing about the woman he can’t stay away from. There’s only one thing to do—change his plans…and hers. When Natalie’s ex resurfaces to threaten her new life, Trevor will move heaven and earth to make sure the bastard can’t hurt her again. Except saving Natalie means outing his own secrets—and it could mean losing her forever…

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading Claim & Protect (Haven Brotherhood Series book #3)’:

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

The third installment of the riveting Haven Brotherhood Series is titled Claim & Protect by author Rhenna Morgan. In this amazing novel readers are given a full-blend of contemporary romance, suspense, and an emotionally-enthralling storyline. The Haven Brotherhood is full of intense, protective, and very attractive men who are willing to break the rules for those they love, this story doesn’t fall short with that expectation at all. This novel is written from the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are Natalie and Trevor.

Natalie Jordan is determined to start a new life with her son Levi and her mother after leaving her husband. Her husband’s controlling and sometimes abusive behavior became too much so she grabbed what she could and left. Her jerk of a husband Wyatt Jordan is a successful plastic surgeon doctor who has his mind set on keeping tabs on Natalie anyway he can. Will Natalie ever truly get away from his control? Natalie’s new boss Trevor at the bar she works at is attractive, protective, and everything else that Wyatt is not. Can she protect herself and her son from her abusive husband? And can she protect her heart from falling hard in the process?

Trevor Raines lives his life on the edge of legal and really has no interest in settling down with any one woman. Most would assume it’s because he’s such an attractive man and can have any woman he wants but it goes deeper than that with Trevor. He was adopted at a young age after the the deaths of his parents. The broken home of abuse from his childhood scarred him as far as relationships go. Unexpectedly, in walks Natalie with her girl-next-door sweetness and naturally beautiful looks, he can’t help but feel curious about her. When he learns about Natalie’s life and the past that won’t let go, will he run the other way or will he stand by to help her when she needs it most?

Claim & Protect absolutely delivers and earns every part of it’s name. The strength and heart that Trevor has is attractive and makes him such an irresistible character. Natalie could be weak because of what she has to deal with but it’s impressive to see her grow into a strong woman who fights to overcome her past. The emotions run high and the dialogue does not disappoint. I recommend this remarkable series and this entertaining novel! Check this one out for sure! ❤

Synopsis for ASHER BLACK’:

He was supposed to kill me. I had done the unthinkable. I called the cops on him, on his family, but he let me live. We became friends, and then… we fell in love.

Lucy Ives is a foster kid, running from her turbulent past. On her first night in New York City, she accidentally calls the cops on the mafia. When their fixer comes to kill her, he spares her life in exchange for a favor–be his fake fiance or die.

Note: This is a full-length, 90K word novel with sexually mature situations unsuitable for underage audiences. It has an HEA an no cliff-hangers. Please, proceed with caution.

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘ASHER BLACK’:

“Asher Black” is the debut novel from new author Parker S. Huntington. I will begin my review by stating that, for a debut novel, this was gripping and enthralling from start to finish. This fast-paced novel is filled with high-volume sexual tension, witty banter, and unknown danger that just keeps this story flowing smoothly. The characters are an enticing blend of: Alluring successful man who potentially has strong ties to the mafia who meets a tough and beautiful college student who uses her guile when necessary. Asher Black is written in the main female character’s P.O.V.(Point of view), Lucy Ives.

Lucy is new to New York. As a new student attending the prestigious and respected Wilton University, her life seems headed in the right direction. She quickly starts up a friendship with her new roommate Aimee. Before long, a night out dancing turns into an unexpected night of twists and turns for Lucy. After experiencing a steamy moment, witnessing an altercation that snowballed, and trying to forget what she witnessed and did, will Lucy be able to move past that night?

Asher Black is known as a dangerous man and someone you do not want to mess with. On top of that, he’s disgustingly rich, successful, and attractive beyond words. His rumored ties to the Romano mafia family, just add to the reasons why you don’t want to cross him. When Lucy unknowingly crosses paths with him, her life gets thrown into a surprising and dangerous tale-spin. Will Asher bring danger to Lucy’s life or will the explosions come from their growing sexual tension?

“Asher Black” is an exciting and enticing story about Lucy and Asher who both grew up with rough childhoods. Now as adults, their paths intersect, leading to a roller-coaster ride in more than one. What is the deal these two will make with each other? Is someone out to get one of them or both? This dangerously entertaining novel delivers on everything you’d hope for from a story-line with a very fierce, at times ruthless, and always sexy man like Asher Black. And, you can’t forget the strong-willed, kindhearted, and beautiful Lucy Ives who is a survivor and not easily breakable despite the rough terrain she’s had to withstand in her past. I recommend this great novel for readers looking to read something with action, romance, and an entertaining story. I definitely am interested in seeing what comes next in The Five Syndicates Series! 😉 Check this one out next! ❤

____________________________________________

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘ASHER BLACK’

Lucy’s thoughts: He’s breathtaking. My eyes trace the defined edges of his jaw, entranced. He has a face that belongs on the big screen, but my intuition tells me he’ll never agree to such exposure. It’s his eyes that convey this to me. They’re intelligent but also guarded.

Lucy’ thoughts: The shallow, senseless part of me tells me to forget who Asher is. To acknowledge and accept that my life will soon be over. That part of me is encouraging me to just take a moment to enjoy the touch of a gorgeous man before it happens. Even if that gorgeous man may eventually be my killer.

Lucy’s thoughts on Asher’s words:  There is nothing I won’t do for the ones I love.
I’ll remember his warning for as long as I live. I was wrong. His love isn’t his weakness.
It’s his greatest strength.

Lucy’s thoughts: I look good. It’s almost weird. Last time I saw Aimee, I was wearing my own raggedy clothes. Now, I’ wearing handmade, one of a kind creations. Is this how Julia Roberts’ character feels like in Pretty Woman? Two parts princess, one part whore?

Lucy and Asher Black:  I’m emotional because he defended me. I can’t tell him this, though. It makes me too vulnerable.
His eyes look earnest and void of judgement when he says, “It’s okay to cry at kindness. This is the first time someone has stood up for you, but it won’t be the last. I’ll always look after you, okay?”
Of course, he figured it out.
This is Asher Black.
“You’re different than I thought you’d be.”
Back then, I thought he was cruel, calculated, and perceptive. A lethal weapon. I was right. But I was also wrong. He’s so much more than that.

Lucy and Asher Black:  “I just… I can’t help but feel like I should be doing this…”
“Don’t.” The harshness in his voice is shocking. “Don’t even think about it, Lucy. Between your life and hers, yours is the one that matters. Every. Single. Time.
Because you’re mine.”

💕

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!”

(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)’:

***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

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.
