I tI just got around to reading this last night because I couldn't sleep. It was a really good book that allowed me to purge all my backlogged tears. I think I loved it so much that I'm giving it to my 16-year-old to read and will read it again myself.
5 Star Read: My absolute favorite and will read again and again. I strongly recommend! It has outstanding qualities. The characters are wonderful and surprising and multi-dimensional. The writing is luring, engaging, and well-crafted enough to keep me interested from cover to cover and beyond. The plot is astonishing with twists and turns weaved into a well thought and planned story. There’s no pretense and romance was well balanced and done entirely correctly with properly distributed amounts of hints, behaviors and incredible, undeniable chemistry. Predictability is at an all-time low. With the exception of series based books that follow the same path but are just as good. Overall, Favorite, must read again, recommend!!!

This second installment has had me chasing the horrors out of my mind as it spas 12 years.
We are introduced to Cobra as Jagger and Celeste in the begThis second installment has had me chasing the horrors out of my mind as it spas 12 years.
We are introduced to Cobra as Jagger and Celeste in the beginning, the night they take their friendship to the next level and become a couple at the tender age of 14. Tragically, it coincides with the day Jagger's twin sister is kidnapped.
For 12 years, Jagger has chased leads after lead that all have dead ends and ends up joining a biker club. While living life as a nomads, he runs into Celeste and they share one last night of passion, never to see each other again. Only, a little over two years later they meet again in a hospital E.R. after the Cobra's club house is bombed.
Celeste has moved on, still missing her Stryker but she has more to live for now. She is strong, intelligent, and independent. She is the woman strong enough to admit that standing by her man during the worst possible event of your life is too hard to do.
In the end this family is reunited and when Cobra wakes from his surgery... Celeste has a surprise for him. A surprise that no one will ever be able to top.
However, this surprise comes with a Shit ton of questions that demand answers. Unfortunately, we have to wait until book 3 to see if any will be reviled.
Quickie: ... Are we going to see Wolf and Stryker's mom get together????...more
I don't usually read the notes from the author before starting a book, unless it's one that I have been asked to give an honest review for. However, tI don't usually read the notes from the author before starting a book, unless it's one that I have been asked to give an honest review for. However, this is the first time I have ever read anything from this author and something just tempted me to read. I was glad I did. By the end I was ready to devour the story and meet my current book boyfriend.
Stryker, Stryker... Yes he was a formidable bad boy to the bones. A touch alpha and a whole lot of sexy. Not to mention he could be an ass. But my heaven what a man. He couldn't protect his mom as a boy, so he joined the military to become a man. Yet, his mother rejected his protection. But still, he wouldn't miss her birthday for nothing.
Then he meets Gina. Falls slowly and is head over heels before he knows it. He splits his loyalty between the club and his girl until it all comes crashing together. He is splinter by the devastation and become more than any man would ever wish. He is a guiding light, a comforter, compassionate, loving, and most importantly, a man hell bent on revenge.
Gina is a independent and strong female lead. She is determined that she doesn't need a man to be happy, yet falls equally as hard s Stryker. In the relationship she doesn't loose her self and remains strong. When Gina's broken, surrounded in torment and despair. She find her will to survive and claws her way out of darkness into the light of life.
This story is not over there is more to come. I just hope the author doesn't forgot this couple....more
I nabbed the start of this series that is listed on Amazon for free. I'm not going to lie, I'm usually doubtful when a book is free on Amazon, but I hI nabbed the start of this series that is listed on Amazon for free. I'm not going to lie, I'm usually doubtful when a book is free on Amazon, but I have read this author before. Therefore, I knew I didn't have anything to fear. As a matter of fact, my only complaint is what can't all the books be free or part of the kindle unlimited collection. Now I have more books from this author I need to got into budget.
Warning, this book is not for everyone. If you react badly to an innocent virgin being kidnapped just weeks prior to her 21 birthday and taken to a sex slave experimental workshop. Just to be drugged into the perfect slave for the owner of said skin trade... then stay blissfully away. Because let's face it. These woman are fed a cocktail of drugs that make them not only complacent but turn them into mindless horny human fuck dolls for sick pervert males. Technically, it's rape because the woman are stolen and brainwashed into believing this is what they want.
Let's just hope Travis finds his spine before Jewels is broken. Better yet, daddy comes along side him to rain thunder down on these prices.

Although, I felt like I wanted more... more dimensions from the characters. More time with the brother's as siblings, more time with the mother. With that said I loved the fire that bloomed between these two.
I'm just glad to know that their story is not over yet. After all, Beckett has a ring but has not popped the question yet.
Can't wait to read what's in store for t next installment....more
I read this as title ad Beneath your Beautiful<\b>. Apparently, the author did some edits to the original publication of this book.
As always II read this as title ad Beneath your Beautiful<\b>. Apparently, the author did some edits to the original publication of this book.
As always I have favorites when it come to the types of books I read. Series are one and add alpha males with romance and ding ding, you have a winner. Well usually, that is.
Something just didn't sit right with Elliot to me. He seemed as if in the future he could become an abuser. He was so quick to anger that it disturbed me. Elliott is definitely not my book boyfriend type.
Regardless, I enjoyed the story enough to stick with it so I could meet the other men of Steel Investigation. I plan on continuing with the second installment with edits titled All of Me.
Side Note: I have not read the book that this has been compared to. However, with several reviews boasting similarities and I did enjoy this, Rock Chick, if the title is correct will be a near future read.<\b>....more
