Eve (Between The Bookends)

descriptionThis cover is bloody AWFUL. It looks like two dudes on the cover. And although the title font is attractive it is much too large and throws off the composition in my opinion.description

I tried I did, but there is no redeeming this hero for me. I don't give a flying fuck whether he gets an HEA or not. In fact, I think I would prefer he get killed and the heroine who seems to be a genuinely nice person find someone worthy of her because this asshole isn't even in the same realm as worthy.

I tried I really did. I loved the beginning and then somewhere along the way it just went wrong. The plot is good with murder, mayhem, betrayal, lies and secrets coming to light.

I put it on hold @ 44% and after messaging with Eve I decided to pick it up again. Well people I hit the 75 % mark and I just can't do it. For me it was like watching a bad B movie. I don't mind the Heroes being d$cks but he took it to a whole another level. He claims the heroine takes her back to his place and after ma

I absolutely love this book.
Katch is an alpha dirty talking man, who is the absolute best.

Caitlin, how I love her strong will and super snark.

I can't even say how many times I busted out laughing reading this book.

OK now time to be vague, That TWIST!!!! My hell!
my emotions were all over the place. when you get there you will be everywhere!

This book is opposites attract in the very best way. So many lol moments, gasp moments, swwooooon sex times, my hell! It was amazing to me.

This book started out good and had me hooked right away. The chemistry between the couple was great in the beginning and the twists were awesome. I just wish it would have stayed that way. Not a fan of insta-love, so it lost me after the couple's initial meeting.

This was such a good read. Like I wanna just curse and tell you all you gotta read it.

Katch Sterling. Oh Katch. I rarely drool over men in a book. To be honest I wouldn't be able to name my top five. However I'm adding Katch to my very short list. He's hot. He's a killer. He's 100% alpha male and I'm claiming him as mine. Yep I might be a little twisted in wanting him. In fact if I thought he'd stop and give me a ride I'd go and hitchhike now:)

I should really be jealous of Caitlin Winslow but I

First off, this is a romantic suspense that leans towards the darker storylines, so consider this a slight warning (although it is NOT a dark romance). The Hitchhiker's plot is NOT all sweet and soft so yes, there are f-bombs and yes, Katch and Caitlin's relationship is not heart and flowers either. There are things that will most likely make some readers cringe, and I understand why. But I also feel that if readers truly understand WHO Katch is, then they know why he did certain things he did i ...more

I loved this book!!! Gah!!! So good. I was sucked in from chapter 1. It's a perfect mix of funny and angsty and sexy. It's full of intrigue, and holy guacamole that twist. Whoa.

Y'all... I can't even with Katch. He's all the things I look for in a book boyfriend. Sweet and sexy, broody and badass, humorous and hung, fierce and foul-mouthed. I could go on and on.

Caitlin is amazing. Strong and sarcastic and snarky and she's a bit of a bada** herself. She had her own issues and it was good to see he

Reading the title alone for this book had me very intrigued. Learning that it was 2 mysterious people making up the author name had me even more interested. Seems to be the trend going on right now with people writing books and not revealing who it really is. I personally don’t understand why but to each their own….

The Hitchhiker was a good book that certainly had its fair share of twist and turns!

Caitlin Winslow, was a young teen attending a party when she is dealt with devastating news. News

Eek! Holy smokes, that was amazing! So many twists and turns I never saw coming, one hot asshole and a hella strong woman! These two could not be more opposite in so many ways but both, stubborn headstrong explosive characters that ignite these pages with some fiery passion! I flove this book! And Katch Sterling has stolen my heart! I can't wait for more from this dynamic duo!

I tried...I really did.

DNF at Chapter 7.

The writing in this book seems stillted/eratic/characters seem to be having multiple personalities. I just couldn't handle Caitlin. First, in almost every scene she's portrayed as a snob...which I hope she'll change by the end of the book for those reading on, but she came off as majorly an ungrateful little bitch.

Then, the apple shampoo bit. Aiiiiii...No! The way it was put into the book, that that would be her flash back trigger was very flimsy. How do y

Holy motherfucking hell! I had no idea what to expect with the Hitchhiker, but I was blown away by this book. I loved the storyline and definitely didn't see that twist coming.

The characters were amazing. Katch is just so badass but it's his soft side that grabs your heart. And Caitlin, I loved her sassy attitude and smart mouth. I can't emphasize enough how much I respect strong female characters and Charlie Lee knocked that out of the park in this book. All of the women were strong, smart and

This book had me hooked from the start! There were so many twists and turns that just when I thought I had things figured out something new would happen. While I am new to the world of MC it is fast becoming one of my favorite genres and this book did not disappoint. There was danger, excitement, sadness and happiness all wrapped up into an amazing story. Opposites definitely attract when Caitlin and Katch meet. She is a feisty, fancy lawyer from LA and he is about as rough as they come. When he ...more

Wow...this book! All the drama, all the secrets, all the twists, all the SEX!!!!!!!!
Katch...what can I say about this tall, handsome stranger, who forcefully tries to sweep Caitlin off her feet, even while trying to play the big bad wolf.
Katch is not your typical everyday that I mean he does not follow rules, he does not ask permission, he takes what he wants, he does what he wants, when he wants, and how he pretty much you do as he says...or you hit the long dusty road to n

It was the title that drew me into this one and then the blurb sealed it as it sounded right up my street for a fabulous read. Unfortunately it did not live up to my own hype.

Caitlin is a kick ass lawyer and has built her way to the top. Her relationship with her father is none existent although it is partly down to him of who she is today. After the loss of her mother some sixteen years previously, she lost the side of her with hope and love. Fast forward six months and her father has been mur

What can I say other then I LOVED these two together! I have never rooted for two people in a book like this before. I loved that you never knew what was going to happen next. The twists & turns made it impossible to want to put this book down. I read i
Sarah - Musings of the Modern Belle


The Hitchhiker is a fantastic debut for the newest secret author duo, Charlie Lee. There is enough suspense and plot revelations to keep readers engrossed in the story, and enough steam and romance to appease romance lovers.

This story starts out with a bang, and has the heroine of the story, Caitlin, fleeing for her life. On her way to her cousins, she is picked up by Katch. He is literally her complete opposite in every possible way, but you kn

He was my employer and I’m just the nanny.

But my heart told otherwise…..

Unplugged is the first book in a duet. What this story appears to be, the typical forbidden, angst and against the odds new adult story. However it is far from just that, it a heartwarming sweet book as well. Ivi Kert, is a girl with simple dreams to change the world . Now aged 22 she is still eager as ever though

"I'm not afraid of you."
"You should be."


I loved this book soooooo much!!
Charlie Lee hit it out of the park with this debut!

Caitlin and Katch were sizzling right from the start! The love/hate relationship was on point!

These two people are so different, but so much the same without even knowing. I loved seeing everything unfold.

"Are you afraid of anyone?"

The title is what got me interested in reading this book. Then I scanned the description and it sounds amazing. I love the idea be being picked up by a killer (with out knowing) and not having any idea what's going to happen.

Caitlin was ruthless. Not in the killer sense but in the sense that she didn't seem to ever backdown and kept her back bone intact even when things were looking so bleak.

Katch may be this bada$$ killer but deep down, the is amazing! His words flow right off the page and tu

I wanted to love this book, i really did! I'm sad that I did not. 3.5 stars

Yes there were some twists and turns in there but the overall writing on the story I couldn't get past. I get annoyed when writers use the same phrases and words throughout books. So maybe I am the only one that noticed but God, goddamn, lord, Christ, and Jesus was used wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much. I don't care if these authors are religious or not. THESE WORDS WERE OVER USED!

An intense read with action, suspense and heat pulsating off the pages!
Katch Sterling is rude, crude and has an attitude; he's an enforcer whose temper flares at the strike of a match.
Caitlin Winslow is a strong, independent lawyer who enjoys the finer things in life. Events unfold throughout her life that have her on the run, seeking safety. But when she's left stranded and Katch crosses her path, neither of their lives will ever be the same again. Will they survive one a

I was so excited to read this book. I'd been impatiently waiting for this bad boy, and I was FINALLY able to get my grubby hands on an ARC. This book was definitely worth the wait, these two authors definitely delivered one great story.
Caitlin was a strong, no nonsense woman that did not let anyone push her around. I love that she didn't cave to what Katch wanted when she first met him. She definitely had a strong attraction to this man, but she didn't swoon and cave to his *$$holery. She rea

As soon as I saw this book and read the blurb, I knew I NEEDED to read it! And holy smokes am I glad I did!

Caitlin is the posh, rich girl. A shark in the courtroom and cut throat, only she's been made that way, lied to her entire life.

Katch is the rough, hot, bad guy. A full on cave man with a beard that you just want to run your hands through!

From the first couple of pages I was hooked and when I first meet Katch, I actually fist bumped! Holy smokes he's H O T!

Hitch Hikers usually end up on Dateline, Caitlin Winslow hit the jackpot, when her car broke down, after yelling obscenity to the cars not stopping for help she finally got the attention of Katch, who gave her a ride to her cousin's place. Her cousin is an MC leader who Katch knows, and since the sassy mouth Caitlin is running scared, he gets invested.
Katch is a bad bad man, but oh so good, he has a dirty unforgiving mouth and doesn't care who he offends but there something about Caitlin he can'

Devoured it!

That prologue.... I was like What did I just read & I need to find out more.

Caitlin sucked me into her world full of angst, drama, suspense and sexy times that had my cherries exploding into oblivion!

And Katch.... The man is a book boyfriend legend!
He is everything you should not want to love in a bad boy but can't resist.

He is ruthless, he is sexy, he is dangerous, he is so mysterious until you find out that under all that hard image, he has secrets that you wouldn't imagine.

I loved this book. I don't know who the two secret authors are who teamed up to write this but I really liked their style and it read like some of my favorite biker romances.
It started off a bit rough but as the story unfolded, I forgave the lapses in judgement by Katch and Caitlin and just went along for the bumpy and thrilling ride.
The storyline was twisted and full of surprises and the romance was steamy and satisfying. If you like a good biker story with a lot of family drama and crazy adven

Am I the only one that has been anxiously awaiting the release of Charlie Lee's debut? No? Well, the wait is over.

The Hitchhiker was an exciting read full of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Full of heart pounding moments that left me begging for more, the book is full of heat, and, believe it or not, heart.
