I didn't know this author and received the recommendation by facebook. I bought the book and have not regretted it.
The story is very good and holds the reader's attention. The characters are all very interesting and we were intrigued by the story of each one.
The series promises to be very good and I'll keep an eye on news of the author. Go to my list of future purchases.

I really enjoyed this story. There is an underlying serious issue in the story - abuse, both physical and sexual. To see both Cadence and Trinity overcome their pasts is awesome. This story is written in such a way you can't help but want this couple to succeed.

My only complaint would be that I struggled with a couple of the timelines.

I can't wait to read Doc and Fern' s story.

This is the second book in the Wheels and Hog series. In this series it picks up were the first book left off. You will get a more in depth with Cadence, Trinity, and get a glimpse of the other characters.

Cadence uses sex as a coping mechanism. He doesn't want to face the past of mental, sexual and physical abuse. Until Trinity comes in the picture. He wants a relationship but when he gets caught he acts like she just one in the million.

Trinity is just trying to stay away from home. She knows o

ok so I love this series! This is a brand new author but gosh the works that are being created are PHENOMENAL! I like the fact the author calls out some AMAZINGLY TALENTED authors in this book just makes me WANT more from this author. The story is savagely exhausting but at the same time exceptionally ferocious yet beautifully brutal. It will have you in tears and then laughing your tail off at the antics of this refined family that this author has created for our pleasure only to build upon the ...more

I was lucky enough to receive an arc, I loved this book! The book took me through every emotion and found myself close to tears at some points...I couldnt wait to see what happened so I couldnt put it down! The book deals with some serious issues but was so well written that it dealt with them perfectly.

I loved the fact that I saw Cadence grow up emotionally from the selfish a-hole he was (although he had good reasons for this), into the stand up guy he was meant to be. love love

Cadence and Trinity’s stories had my heartbreaking and my eyes leaking. These two broken souls find each other and then Cadence breaks Trinity’s heart. I love the way DM Earl weaves all the characters into the story then sets up for the next one. A fantastic read and now to start the third one.

When someone finds him physically and emotionally beaten, he thought he would never be able to get past the brutal experience. However, with the help, love and encouragement from this new found family at Wheels & Hogs Cadence has slowly been able to deal with his past. However, he has not completely come to terms with

I absolutely loved this book!

After reading the first book, which was a great intro to The Horde, I was looking forward to this one. Although, I have to admit, I was a bit afraid that the plot would be focusing solely on Cadence, leaving the rest of The Horde out. Well, that was not the case, however.

What a wonderful & terrible story. As the story began I thought there was no redeeming Cadence, and just when you thought there might be hope for him he reverts to his way of dealing with any stressful situation by backing off and acting like a douche. Trinity has had a terrible home life. Both she and Cadence are broken with secrets they do not want to share with any one. This book touched my heart, it made me think and made me aware that sometimes people act in a terrible fashion because t ...more

My Review of Cadence Reflection By D.M. Earl
My Rating 4.5 Stars

This is nothing that you expect when you pick up a MC read, this story is like reading about real life, and situations that can happen. This book is so full of emotion, it’s heartwarming full of drama suspense and love. This is a gripping story of Cadence one which I could not put down. This story sucked me in and kept me turning the pages.
Beautiful story, and I’m so happy that the author braved the waters of some delicate issues tha

This is the first book I have read by D.M.Earl and I was blown away. The characters pull you into a world of heartbreak and hope. Candence and Trinity are two broken individuals who have endured so much pain. Their strength to trust and try for a future is amazing. This story will rip your heart out and then put you back together. I highly recommend this book. Thank you for an emotional experience.

Absolutely loved this book! Cadence is your hot damaged playboy. Trinity is your innocent, sweet girl. That has some dark secrets of her own. Can two damaged people heal each other or will they destroy each other? You'll have to read to find out and it's so worth it! Love all the supporting characters too! Can't wait for their stories.

I loved it! The story line is so emotional with the horrific childhoods that both Cadence and Trinity had to endure caused my heart to hurt. I fell in love with the characters (all of them) that once brought together not only made caring, dependable and nurturing friends also form a beautiful extended family with unconditional love.

It is clear that Cadence has been to hell and back already in his short life. He is so thankful to Des, Fern and Doc for all that they have done for him. A fresh start with a good job, a secondary family that means everything to him. But it is not enough to take the past away, the nightmares still plague him, the complete loss of control till haunts him. He has used his piercings and tattoos to take the pain, sex to bring exhaustion but nothing seems to wo

Cadence Reflection is my second D.M. Earl book as well as the second book in the Wheels and Hogs Series. This story follows Cadence Power and Trinity Vickers. Cadence is haunted by his past. With nightmares him from sleep, he's become addicted to sex and pills to get through the nights and completely pulls away from any and all help offered to him. His family is the other one-percenters at Wheels & Hogs which includes Trinity Vickers. Trinity is also damaged and haunted by her secrets. Caden ...more

Carla's Four Star Review

This is the second book in the Wheels & Hogs series, and it mainly focuses on the relationship between Cadence and Trinity.

Cadence has been through hell and lived to tell the tale. However, instead of dealing with his past trauma, he uses sex and pills to numb his pain and keep his demons at bay. When Trinity comes into his life, we see Cadence grow from a selfish man whore into the man he was always mean

Cadence and Trinity have each been through so much, yet they don't realize how perfect they are for each other. Cadence is still pretty immature at the beginning of the story, and he makes some seriously poor choices in his treatment of Trinity. The horde from Wheels & Hogs helps them to work out their issues, while also planning for a big event to help Fern and Doc with their mounting medical bills.
Some of the secrets that come out are a little hard to believe, but I remained entertained a

Cadence Reflection is book two in D.M. Earl’s Wheels & Hogs series. Throughout Cadence’s story we see just how abuse can shape a person and how it takes support from friend, family or your chosen family to overcome and learn how to cope in healthy methods.

Trinity and Cadence’s story both broke my heart and left me hopeful and excited for them. I liked the fact that some of the other character’s POVs got included, so we see that this entire series is about the Wheels & Hogs family. They’

My heart broke and cried for Cadence and Trinity and all they have been through. As they opened up to each other and their family they found strength not only in each other, but from their family as well. I'm so happy they found their happily ever after together. This book took me on one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I was happy and then brought to tears again.

This is the story of Cadence and Trinity who become friends then lovers then fall apart. There’s a lot that goes on in this book and other characters too. Fern, Doc, Wolf and Des are among these. Since the series has many but you don’t have to read them in order it’s great to get some background information. Cadence and Trinity have to learn to open up and trust one another. When things got bad and trinity almost leaves without a trace, someone finds her and she isn’t good. The MC’s take her out ...more

I started with the second book in the series and I was not disappointed. The story is intriguing and heartbreaking all at the same time. It will draw you in and you can only hope that at the end there is retribution for these two lost souls. Cadence is a bit of man whore and his story is so sad that you will find yourself in tears. Trinity's story is no better. Do not start this at work! I can not wait to read the rest of the stories as there are many characters that you will want to see get the ...more

I could not put this book down. It made me laugh and cry. It tore at my heart strings. Cadence is a broken man. He has so many issues he deals with from his past. To get through things he has one night stands to erase the pain. He meets Trinity and loves her humor. Trinity has her owe problems and wants to forget them when she's out. She's different than any other person Cadence hooks up with. I love how this story has great flow. You get wrapped up in the characters.  Love this book. Make sure ...more

I am voluntarily reviewing this arc of this book. Cadence has been thru a lot thru his childhood to present he is a man whore. He and trinity are friends but he wants her for more. She puts him in his place several times. Trinity has been abused by her father. She and cadence hooks up and there is an accident. She isn't seen for a while. When she is found she looks bad. Cadence and his friends help her. Everyone in this book helps them in several ways. You may need tissues towards the end. Her a ...more
