Caroline Lewis never thought she would get hurt again, but letting biker Mason Butler into her place did just that. On the run with her loyal dog, CarCaroline Lewis never thought she would get hurt again, but letting biker Mason Butler into her place did just that. On the run with her loyal dog, Caroline finds her hunkered down in a place that is surrounded with women in similar situations. But when Mason comes back into her life vowing to protect her, she knows he has won her heart and soul.
A continuation from Long Way Down. I thought this was an intense follow up. It does have a swinger type thing that just doesn't appeal to me. I find that if you are so in love why do you need outside sex. Otherwise story good, just could have lived without the field play....more
Newly appointed treasurer for the Fallen Angels MC, Mason Butler knows in his gut that something is not on the up and up with the books. Knowing he caNewly appointed treasurer for the Fallen Angels MC, Mason Butler knows in his gut that something is not on the up and up with the books. Knowing he can trust few, he seeks out accountant Caroline Lewis who was recommended from a trusted source.
Caroline is instantly attracted to the hardened biker, she makes a pass which he willingly accepts. Trying to get to the bottom of the missing money, Mason tells her he will handle it on his own to keep her out of danger. However it is as if he left a footprint to her door and now Mason can't protect her.
So it is a 3.5 for me, this was not a story I was expecting. There really is not much banter and I thought Caroline was normal not as loosely tongued as expecting. Had some really good elements to the story but was a bit too much wham, bam, thank you mam for me. Plus it is a cliffhanger, I tend to prefer one and done....more

Haunting story, I thought this was an emotional rollercoaster. I loved all the characters, Raya is a survivor and I definitely shed a few tears during her journey. Completely unexpected, a bit dark but a stunning read.

Vince is not sure what to think of Julianna, she is a contradiction of the woman he knew and the woman she is now. Vince knows she is still the woman for him, now he needs to convince the gunshy woman that he is worth the trouble.
This was a pretty good story, I think I would have liked a bit more of the past between Vince and Julianna it seemed like it was just brushed upon. Vince once he figured he wanted Julianna back in his life, he goes after her swiftly, quite the alpha male once a decision is made. Will check out the other books in series....more

As James gets her to agree to see where the chemistry between them is going, he can't help the feeling in his gut that he needs to keep her close.
This was pretty good. A bit rushed in some places and Shay is a hot mess. I think I would have liked more delved into her past, you get answers but it felt like it could have been explored a bit more. James is a rock and for Shay that is important, she has lived a life of let downs. I would check out more in this series....more

Gabriel wants the stunning Eva Jacobs, he knows it crosses a line but he feels something he has never felt before and can't seem to stay away. As his scornful brother looks to seek revenge, Eva is in danger and Gabriel has to do whatever he can to keep her safe.
Explosive and dynamic. Loved every moment of this story because you are not sure how it will end. Eva and Gabriel sizzle as a couple, but she has no idea of his background or of the father she has never met. High praise for Nancy Haviland.

If your looking for a book that makes you smile and laugh this is it, with it's naughty humor and unconventional storyline it is so worth reading....more

This is the type of story you are hooked immediately and invested in the characters. Carrie is a delightful heroine who has had a tough time of it, she doesn't let it devastate her though, I so appreciated that she toughened it out quickly. I liked Brad, he oozes masculinity and was eager to see where the story would go. Great read....more
