Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

This was an MC romance loosely based on the fairytale Snow White and the seven dwarves.
This is still a contemporary, not a fantasy this just incorporates some of the fairytale with vague parallels.
Neve is left for dead by her drug-dealer boyfriend in the woods.
Found by the Scarred Savages MC who she nicknames sleepy, grumpy etc they take her back to there clubhouse and to Charm their President.
Neve is a coke addict so even though Charm doesn't want her there mainly because of his past they detox
 Leo (Queen of the Rants)
I can only give 2 stars to this book and thats only because it was safe. The heroine was a drug addict who left college for drugs and her addicted loser of a boyfriend being someone so "smart" she sure didn't think that through and I didn't even felt sorry for her when he stabbed her.. When She offered herself as club whore in payment for them to help her and they didn't want her skinny drug addict ass (hero's words, not mine). I was shaking my head, really this woman doesn't learn anything?
Wow, just wow. Beautiful writing, an amazing story with lovable characters. An MC book with faithful men who are definitely not man-whores. None of them. They didn't even have club-bunnies. None. There was no OW drama at all. Totally safe. Just the best. And an HEA.

I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. I'm hooked.
Jazmyne- Ramblings of a Bookworm
“I crushed her up against my chest, deciding then and there that I wasn’t going to fight it anymore. I wasn’t going to force myself to stay away. Her demons and mine were the same; perhaps they were even close friends in another realm.”

There are a lot of books I say I love, many books I read multiple times, but not many books can I say truly challenge my thinking and force me to consider another angle of life. This book did just that. Oh, and, head’s up — this review is going to be crazy long.

5 magical stars!

I started this book late last night thinking it was a good idea even though I had work in the morning- it was not a good idea because I was sucked in. I am tired, running on a few hours of sleep but this book was so worth it. I was captivated from start to finish by this modern day story of Little Snow White. I should’ve known better because Shannon is one of my favorite authors and everything she writes is magic. I loved Neve and Charming; they were flawed, but perfect for each

Through the Woods by Shannon Myers a five star-read that you will take you to a fairy-tale far away. I have taken a couple of days to do this review as I didn’t know what to say, I couldn’t do the story justice, I made a very loud squeal (scaring my husband half to death) when I saw a message to check my kindle and saw this pop up and despite a message making sure I knew it wasn’t another Renegade series book (Amazing series by the author in case you haven’t read it yet, please do its proper ...more

5 Stars!!!

This is a new author for me, I’m not even sure how I came across this book but Shannon Myers has a new fan.

I was addicted and could not put it down from start to finish. The writing style just grabbed me and didn’t let go. I’m not a fan of flashbacks but the way they were done in this story kept me interested. Most of the flashbacks came from reading a journal.

We start with Neve who is in college and way in over her head. She gives herself one night of fun and a break from studying and

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

I thought I knew what I was getting into when I started Through The Woods, but honestly, this book threw me a hell of a curveball! Intense, full of angst, bad-ass bikers with surprising amount of caring and compassion and a slightly more twisted version of Snow White the fairy tale, I was utterly floored by this read. I am not sure if this is a bit of a dark romance or a harder core version of romantic suspense. I mean WOW! This was so intense! We have bikers
April Symes
This story was one that I was not expecting. I was thinking it would be a modern day twist on a fairy tale……well it is but then it isn’t. It is a warped modern day fairy tale of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs . It has drug use, angst, dirty sex, alpha bikers, twisted villains, drug addiction, flawed hero and broken heroine, intense passion and good vs evil.
The author paints a really good picture of who Neve White is. She is a 22 yr old who had a promising future ahead of her. Until she got hooked

Neve White has a bright future ahead of her but when she meets Clint her world turns upside down when he gets her hooked on cocaine as a way of coping with her school schedule. But at 22 she is completely addicted and Clint attempts to kill her but luckily she escapes.

Neve is rescued by 7 bikers and their leader, Charm, is not happy she is there. Gradually Neve finds her place among the men and finds a journal written by Charm explaining the past of the men and Neve puts together the pieces of

A Top Read of 2018!

I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this book is! The writing, the story, the characters, the climax... that HEA! All of it amazing! This is one of my favorite re-tellings of the Snow White/Little Snow fairytale I have ever read!

I won't give a lot of story details, because spoilers super suck! What I will tell you is that it has all the elements of the Grimm fairy tale with a little Disney thrown in and Myers has thrown the perfect contemporary twist on it,

Oh my!!! A new author for me and totally new take on the MC scene that blew me away. The intensity in the beginning kept me reading, wondering where this was leading too, then the “woods” truly entered the story and I was hooked, I then devoured each page, loving each character, the dialogue and plot.
In short, the story follows Neve, a young woman on the run from her druggie boyfriend. She meets Charm, a biker who wasn’t named for his character and his band of biker friends.
He finds her in the

This is my first read by Ms. Myers. I was totally invested in all of these characters. Neve got addicted to cocaine her freshman year of college. Now she is on the run from her drug dealing ex-boyfriend who attempted to kill her. He leaves her body in the wilderness of Colorado, only to have her body stumbled upon by bikers. She is in and out of consciousness and dubs her rescuers by the little dwarfs names in Snow White. The president is a real hard a** when it comes to Neve. Charm has his own ...more

5+ Star Review

So I finished this book a short time ago, but I’ve been debating how to write this review. I don’t often give 5+ reviews, but this book warrants that review and more. I loved this story. It beautifully written and kept me wanting more with each page. I’m absolutely not going to give you any spoilers, because I want you to read this book. I will give you a little run down.

Neve started out going to college with good intentions, but even the best of intentions don’t always work out.

This book has just rocketed to the top of my Shannon Myers hit list.

Stepping into the world of a re-imagined Snow White, I discovered a dark fairytale of drugs and motorcycle clubs - closer to the Grimms version than Disney, but also a tale of love and redemption.

Neve is a beautifully broken woman. Intelligent, sassy and oddly relatable, she showed strength and determination and has easily become one of my favourite heroines. Devastatingly, heartbreakingly and lovingly, I think there’s a little

I have an affinity for biker romance novels. The good ones.

Myers manages to combine the biker lifestyle with the fairy tale undertones of Sleeping Beauty. The story of Neve (clever pun), a young, tragic heroine who literally claws her way back from a very unhealthy slope she’s found herself on becomes an inspiring and beautiful story of personal strength and survival. Charm, the president, is actually a beautiful soul with an exterior made of stone and a heart made for love. Each character

These are the kind of dwarfs Snow White really wanted!

Wow! What an awesome surprise this book turned out to be . Neve was left in the woods for dead when found by a group of Bikers. The story resembles the fairytale of Snow white and the seven dwarfs only in that sense . Charm was the prez of the MC and he and Neve were drawn together . This whole group of guys was lovable teddy bears with Neve. They didn’t have club whores or call women bitches which is refreshing for an MC book. Those are the

This was not what I was expecting. When I started reading the story and turned into a warped or debased fairy tale. I really liked the story. It has: alternating pov, twists, manipulation, angst, dirty sex, broken H/h and HEA.
Neve was in college struggling to get through her first year when all she did was study. Her grades were a mess. She made the mistake of signing up for double major in Psychology and Neurosciences.
Her friend convinced her to take a break from studying and go to a party with

Through the Woods is an adaptation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and I absolutely loved it!
I’m not normally one to like the warm fuzzy romances, so I was a little nervous beginning this fairy tale variation. I reminded myself that this was an MC romance and it should have the grit and naughtiness often associated with motorcycle club books. I am so happy I took that chance as this was an amazing book!

Have you ever read a book that took you there, there where you truly feel all the feels your hero/heroine is feeling? Felt that you could feel the happy the sad the pain as the characters you're reading about? Shannon Myers will take you there with this one! You have Charm and Neve, but you also have all the other characters in the book and Yes you feel all of the feels with them too. Truly brilliant writing!!! This is one book I will recommend to all I talk to, it's truly that good!

Wow, just wow! This book was amazing, this is a new to me author so I didn’t know what to expect when I dove into this book, I was totally blown away! I was hooked from the first page and spat out at the end, I totally devoured this book in one sitting and was sad when it ended. The reader is sucked down a rabbit hole that is full of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages and on the edge of your seat right till the end.

I cannot even begin to describe how devastatingly incredible this book is! Through the Woods was a pure hit of overwhelming, chaotic emotions and unimaginable situations that leaves you craving for more!

To be completely honest, what really attracted me to this book was the sucker-punch to the ovaries, smoking-hot cover. I one-clicked this book so fast I gave myself whiplash. Then come to find out the true contents of the storyline, and I was addicted. I haven’t read a good MC romance for awhile
Neve and Charm's story.....WOW, this book was so much more then what I expected.

Neve was a young college student with and extremely bright future when she met her drug dealing boyfriend, fast forward a couple of years and yeah that bright future is no more.....

Charm's MC brothers found a half dead coke addict in the woods, his worst nightmare.....

Charm and Neve's story is one of growth, self-healing, badass alpha men, and family.

This is definitely an author to watch and see what comes next....

This is an oddly twisted retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Charm is no prince and Neve is no princess and yet they are each others salvation, though Neve needs more saving than Charm.

One night changed Neve's life for the worse. Carefully laid plans were forgotten in the wake of her addiction. The boyfriend she thought loved her ends up being enemy number one. Beaten and left for dead, she's rescued by Charm who just wants her gone once she's detoxed and well enough to leave. But the

I absolutely loved this book! Started one evening and stayed up until I finished. The emotions this story puts you through is off the charts. I laughed, cried, screamed!! It’s a beautiful story of family and finding oneself. The romance has so much angst and so many feels, I found myself holding my breath! It is an MC book and a romance, but it’s just so much more! Everyone had demons but it’s facing them and the support from others that makes you strong. I don’t do spoilers, just pick this book ...more
