Hooked by Christina Phillips

I not so secretly love all thing MC romance related, and this blurb doesn’t give too much away about the book, just that Zach is in an MC and a classy girl from the right side of the tracks shows up one night and of course they get together. I want to say upfront that this book is not a super hard MC book, if you are looking for dark and gritty MC, this is not your book. While it still is about a guy in an MC and he’s definitely rough around the edges, the book is kinda like a sweet MC, and I kind of really liked that. So most MC books I’ve read the guy is super involved in the Club and the author goes into a lot of storyline about the club and the things the club is involved with, which almost always gives it kind of a dangerous tone to it all. While I would say the author kind of hints at the fact that the MC is involved in maybe some less then lawful activity, there is no real MC storyline here, it’s all Zach and Grace, which was kinda nice for me. Zach is super confident, I almost think too confident. Grace walks into a bar on the seedy side of town, and MC bar, looking for a phone because he car broke down, and Zach is like convinced, I mean convinced, the whole thing is a rouse so she can hook up […]

Devil’s Mark by Megan Crane

A few years ago I went through a massive pile of books about MC’s, I loved them, could not get enough, and then I burnt myself out. I’ve started reading them again, and thankfully I am remembering why I loved them in the first place. Plus I really liked the heroine in this book is basically like the town princess, so the idea of her hooking up with the town bad boy is kind of hot. When we first meet Killian, or “Uptown,” as he is known to the club, he has a big chip on his shoulder. He definitely didn’t grow up easy, and he is finally at the point where he can bring down the hurt on the town mayor. As it turns out Killian and the mayor have a past, the mayor used to provide Killian’s mom with drugs and hook up with her. Totally understandable why he would hate the mayor. So when the mayor’s daughter Holly walks into the club bar looking for a job, Killian sees this as the perfect opportunity to get back at the mayor and maybe even get Holly into his bed. I really liked Holly, she had a lot more backbone then I was expecting out of her. She grew up a princess, always following the rules, doing exactly what he dad wanted her to, basically little miss perfect. And now that it’s come out that her father isn’t the guy she thought he was she is feeling kind of […]

Could’ve Said Yes by Tracy March

I can honestly say I don’t think I have read a book where someone works for the EPA, sure there have been the occasional book where one of the characters is really big on the environment, but never someone who worked for the EPA. So because of that reason I was pretty interested in reading this book. I actually really loved the environmental aspect of the book, it really worked for me. Ellie is back in town after a disastrous break up with her ex, she’s finally doing what she really wants to do now that she is on her own. She opened her own art gallery and does some side photography work for the newspaper, all in all her life is going pretty good. She also has some really good relationships with her brothers, who I really liked. So when the new guy shows up in town, it definitely opens her to the possibility of a relationship, something I don’t think she was expecting. I really liked the way the author was able to describe Ellie’s photography and art, sometimes its hard to visualize in my head what exactly an author is talking about when it comes to art, but this was really easy for me to see, and I loved it. I also really loved the dynamics between Ellie and the town, it’s a small town so everyone knows everyone, and they all really seemed like good people. Now as for our hero, Collin I really liked him.

Charged by Jay Crownover

I remember reading my first Jay Crownover book, it was Rule, and I fell in love. I mean I think I read this book three times in a row because I loved it so much. So I bought all the books in the series and never read them, I figured nothing was going to live up to the amazingness that was Rule (which to this day still occupies a piece of me), so when the option to get this book came my way, I thought you know what I want to see if Rule was a fluke, I wanna see what else Jay Crownover is packing in her creative vault. I am so glad I decided to read this book. I loved it. And I loved it for a lot of the same reasons that I loved Rule, but yet in such different ways. So honestly, one of the reasons why I liked this book is because her characters remind me of me and my friends. Avett is a pink haired girl whose life is spiraling out of control. She is in the middle of her “come to Jesus” moment, she’s in jail and she knows he life has to change. She has to stop disappointing people and doing the wrong things, and figure out what to do with her life. I love how she doesn’t fit the mold though, there are moments in the book where people make comments about her hair or how she is somehow less because […]

Hidden Heat by Carla Swafford

I am a big fan of MC romances, so much so that I went through a phase a couple months ago where it felt like that was all I was reading. But it’s been a while since I’ve had a really good one to really sink my teeth into and I was really happy when this book came my way. Part of the reason why this book appealed to me so much is because it isn’t just an MC book, our hero in the book is a cop, an undercover cop, which just upped the suspense and the fun of reading this book. So this book had a tendency to go from 0 to 60 super quick, and that was probably because of Cassidy, she’s one of those heroines who just goes all out all the time, especially when it comes to things she cares about. The book starts off and we have Cassidy looking for info on her brother, and she is fierce about getting information, sometimes at detriment to herself. I have to say I liked how loyal she was to her family. I also liked how full of personality she was, but I must admit there were more than a few times when I wish she had toned it down a little bit. But overall she was a fun character to read. Now as for Thorn, man that is one hot undercover cop. I liked him, but he also kind of came off as a bit of […]

When We Kiss by Darcy Burke

The premise for this book just seemed so heartbreaking, and frankly I like a book that tugs at my heartstrings. So this book is pretty far into the series, book five, and while you don’t need to have read the other books to read this one, I think I would recommend it (even though I didn’t) just because I feel like there is a lot of backstory going on, and the family in this book is HUGE, so there are a lot of characters to get to know and names to remember, and it might be easier if you had all the backstory from the beginning. So what I knew going into this book was that Liam had an identical twin, one who killed himself, his name was Alex. And he prepared for his death with his lawyer, Aubrey, (who he kind of duped into preparing for the worst case, she had no idea he was going to kill himself). Aubrey and Liam have one of those very passionate relationship, frankly because they are both dealing with the loss, and it’s almost like they are taking their grief and emotions out on each other. But when the book starts, it’s like a year since the two of them started secretly being each other’s convenient hookup, and Aubrey is fed up, she wants to be something more, not just someone Liam calls when he is in town to get laid. I liked Aubrey, she is really just a sweet girl, who […]

His Fantasy Girl by Nina Croft

So I know I have mentioned before how I have mixed feelings about the whole hidden child thing, but in some cases, where the child isn’t kept from the other parent because of vindictive reasons, I tend to like the storyline. So in this story, Logan meets a girl at the club owned by his father, her name is Abby, and its her 18th birthday, they spend an incredibly hot night together, and then go their separate ways. Now I’m not really a fan of women hiding kids from their fathers, but in this case, she’s a super young girl, and when she goes to find this guy who she had the hot one night stand with, well she’s told he is in jail, so it a pretty good reason since she doesn’t know anything about him other than that his new address is in the slammer. So I do have to admit I really liked Abby as a character. She’s a single mom, but she works her bum off to provide a good life for her daughter. It’s clear how much she cares about her daughter and only wants the best for her. Also, she has worked hard for herself too, she’s a police officer, and she is working hard to move up the chain. I like a woman who has ambition and works hard to get where she wants to be. But really, the thing I respected the most about her is that when Logan shows up on […]

Hold Me Until Morning by Christina Phillips

So I am a sucker for romances that involve a guy falling for his best friends younger sister. I love the whole inherently forbidden aspect of it, because nine times out of ten the couple in questions hides the relationship from everyone and it just makes it all the more exciting. The characters in this book definitely kept their relationship under wraps, but that had more to do with the fact that Paris is a Hollywood actress and she’s trying to escape from that world for a while. Sounded like to me that this book had all the right elements for me to enjoy it. Paris, our heroine, has been working on the same prime time soap since she was a young teenager, and at this point she has had enough. You can’t blame her for wanting a life outside of the glitz and glammer of it all, especially since there have been some real after effects from this way of life. I felt kind of sorry for Paris while reading this book, she has no idea who she can trust, she’s very isolated (even though she is surrounded by people all the time), and her mother has created an environment for her that is based on only letting people around her that can do something for her. Paris just wants to be normal, she just wants to have people in her life she can talk to. She was in no way expecting to be attracted to the guy her […]

Fire Me Up by Rachael Johns

I adore a good MC romance, especially when the characters are well developed. I was intrigued by this book because it seems like the whole premise of the series is that it is about an MC who broke apart in the aftermath of Katrina and then are brought back together after the death of their old leader. I thought this was an interesting take because these aren’t people who are active in the MC lifestyle, so I thought it would make for an interesting dynamic. So first things first, I thought the book started a bit abruptly, I’m not sure if it’s because I had missed the events of the first book in the story, but I felt like things moved super fast right from the start. So Travis is back in town because he inherited a but of buildings (along with the three other guys) and Travis basically wants to sell and get the heck out of New Orleans as soon as possible. I think he felt like the disbanding of the MC was kind of like a family abandoning him. While he is there some of the others kind of rope him into figured out if their old Pres. had been murdered or not. So right off the bat Travis just struck me as a jerk and a bully. I don’t know about you but if my landlord showed up at my apartment and announced he was going to move into my spare room I would have called […]

Black Dawn by Cristin Harber

I love books with hackers, I am sorry it’s just my thing, give me a computer nerd everyday of the week and I’m happy, especially if they are built and can carry a gun (just saying). I love a good romance under fire, I mean who doesn’t love some added suspense in their romance? So we start off with Lexi meeting a guy at a bar, and talk about a bad decision, I mean seriously. This guy, Matt, well he turns out to be bad news. Two years later, she engaged to the guy who is beyond abusive and threatens to hurt her dog. Honestly that part killed me. I know what it is like to love an animal so much, to feel like they are the only friend you have and then to have that animal threatened. I mean seriously there is a special place in hell for people who threaten and hurt animals just because they can. From the beginning I just wanted Lexi to get the heck out of dodge. And it’s so hard to read sometimes because she is such a smart girl, clearly has the resources to leave, she has just been broken down slowly over time and her desire to belong and be loved is being completely used against her. Seriously my heart just broke for her. And then we have Parker. Oh sweet Parker. Who doesn’t love a hacker who works for the good guys, is built like a rock, and can protect […]
