In her new contemporary series, the steam is put on the back burner; however, what it is lacking in steam is made up in a humorous, sweet, and sensual story.
The opening scene is one of the best I've read. It hooked me!
I adored Walker Lund! He is such a charismatic and fun hero without seeming too over the top alpha or a beta hero. He falls somewhere in the middle, which is the kind of hero's I like.
Artist heroines are typically my least favorited heroine of all. I just can't connect with them, which is weird because I'm a crafty kind of person. I did like Trinity though. I thought she was super funny and adorable. I just zoned out when there was a lot of talk about art. Nothing wrong with it or the story, just a personal preference.
Once again, Mama Lund stole the show. I freaking love her. She's awesome, I love how she took Trinity in and adored her too. I love her and Walkers relationship. She got him!
I'm looking forward to more stories with the Lund siblings!
The Reapers series by Joanna Wylde is one of my all time favorite series. There is no doubt in my mind that she writes some of the best MC books on thThe Reapers series by Joanna Wylde is one of my all time favorite series. There is no doubt in my mind that she writes some of the best MC books on the market, and if I was reviewing this book solely on the biker part I would give it 5 outstanding stars. With that being said, the romance part was a flop for me. I actually really liked Gage and Tinker and I'm sure I would of loved their story if we got more than 40% of the book with them.
You read that right 60% of the book we watched them lust after each other all the while Gage was boinking a rival MC's leaders sister to keep tabs on the other MC.
I felt like there were several lose ends left and I kept wondering what happened. Maybe it will be said in a another book, but I for one was not completely satisfied. And Talia needs to die!!!
I'm hoping there are more books to this series and hoping to fall back in love with Ms. Wylde's stories. Love stories.
Lucas is the start of a new spin off series of Ms. McLean's More Than series. Featuring the Preston brothers.
I have to start off by saying I did notLucas is the start of a new spin off series of Ms. McLean's More Than series. Featuring the Preston brothers.
I have to start off by saying I did not realize how much I love the craft that this author puts into her stories until a few weeks ago when I went to check out my reviews and ratings for the books I've read of hers.
I've only read the More Than series and this one, but will be adding all of her backlist. She has that special rare feature that just hooks you into her world and I have to say I enjoy being there!
Lucas and Lois "Laney" are what I look for in a romance. Their friendship is what hooked me, it felt real. It was raw, it was flawed, and it was perfect.
I adore the close relationships the brothers have. I love how Lucas' family loved Laney and I loved how Laney adored the boys.
We get to see more of Ms. Preston and while it broke my heart it also healed it some. Her bond with her kids as well as Laney is how all mother/child relationships should be like. I'm lucky enough to have a mom similar to her and I realize that is a rare feat.
Don't get me wrong. This book is not filled with hearts and flowers. There is angst! At one point my kindle almost drowned. Especially around the 30% mark. Seriously guys. I was devastated, but later came to the realization on why it had to happen that way. I definitely have mixed feeling. Lol
I can't wait to read more of this series!
5+ stars, definitely one of my top reads this year! ...more
Elastic Hearts was one of my top anticipated reads this year! When I heard Victor was getting his own story I was ecstatic, when I found out his bookElastic Hearts was one of my top anticipated reads this year! When I heard Victor was getting his own story I was ecstatic, when I found out his book would be the last in the Hearts series, I was sad. I have not so silently been stalking Claire on Facebook this month, getting any and every detail I could of Victor and Nicole.
Victor and Nicole where hot, but together they were combustible. Their story flew of the pages and held my attention from start to finish. There is just something about this author's writing that appeals to me and I feel fortunate to have found such an amazing, talented author.
While Elastic Hearts is definitely a standalone, I highly recommend Kaleidoscope Hearts and Paper Hearts as they are both superb reads! This whole series has done me in and I can't recommend it enough. It is very rare for me to rate a book 5 stars, but to rate all three is almost unheard of for me.
This book was so boring to me. I'm not sure if it was because prior to this book I had several awesome reads or if it truly was a bore.
My reason forThis book was so boring to me. I'm not sure if it was because prior to this book I had several awesome reads or if it truly was a bore.
My reason for not liking this book has nothing to do with the infidelity issue. I happen to like those types of books very much, if done right. I just found it hard to connect with the main characters.
I'm not sure how this book ended up on my kindle. It had to be because it was a free book or on kindle unlimited. These days I do not add free books oI'm not sure how this book ended up on my kindle. It had to be because it was a free book or on kindle unlimited. These days I do not add free books on my kindle unless I intend to read them. I just don't remember doing so.
I'm a little conflicted in how I want to rate this book. In many ways I loved it and some others not so much. I believe the author wanted to tell a story that would last a lifetime. While I believed the characters loved each other, to me it seemed it took a lifetime to get their HEA.
The first half of the book is about young love. It's about how Dylan and Aubrey met and fell in love. It was perfect and I really loved this part. However, the second part there are so many time jumps, broken up in chunks. Overall is was 16 years. If I wasn't so invested in this couple I would of probably put the book down. I don't mind some time gaps but that was ridiculous!
The conclusion saved this book for me. It felt real and I loved it.
It would be hard doing a review without giving away spoilers so I'll just leave off here.
Well as I mentioned in an update that I went into this book totally blind, I've never heard of this author, nor read the books description. I just lovWell as I mentioned in an update that I went into this book totally blind, I've never heard of this author, nor read the books description. I just loved the cover an title.
Having said that, I was truly surprised. This is not your typical MC book, or cop book for that matter. Some parts were sad, others where humorous.
I will read more of this authors work. I like her style. :)

I wasn't ready for my heart toI bought Marley, Carnage Book 3 nearly a year ago when it was first released. I just couldn't bring myself to read it. I wasn't ready for my heart to be split open and old wounds become new ones. I just didn't have it in me.
I finally decided to read it after giving myself a major pep talk. I talked myself into not having any emotions which wasn't that hard because I usually don't, with the exception of this and maybe 3 other books.
I did fairly well. I did tear up at the end, but it wasn't a full on ugly cry like I did with Carnage!!
I didn't really know what to expect with this book. I didn't read the blurb or any reviews so I was surprised to see a grown Marley writing his book, which was basically a rebelling of Carnage, but in is POV. Usually I hate these types of books. I don't typically read what is considered a companion novel. I just don't see the point, but I didn't mind this one too much.
I loved getting to know Ashley. That was kind of weird for me since my daughters name is Ashley, but I overlooked it.
This is probably the only series I will ever knowingly read of this nature and enjoy. I'm not into needing medication because a author wants to kill me with words.
Earlier I mentioned I have no emotions, that wasn't a lie. I just don't. However, every once in a while a book will totally consume my life and plop me in the middle of the books universe and I can't tell the difference between fiction and reality. And I cry.
These are the only books I've ever cried over:
Carnage (1&2) Wild Card Thoughtless Maybe one more, but can't think of it off the top of my head.
