Makiing Choices Sign up form teaser

The second installment in the Black Shamrocks MC series, Making Choices was just as good, if not better.

A much lighter read compared to bk1, what I liked about this sequel was the contrast between both main characters. They are as different as night and day, and yet, they connect on a level that no one dare break or impede on.

Lucas “Timer” Blake is a no nonsense, no holds barred type of man who’s loyal to the t

This is book two in the Black Shamrocks MC Series. Make sure you read book one first as this continues where Seizing Control ends.

Juliette Patrice is on her way to having the career she has worked so hard for- a surgeon. She also craves for her parents love and approval. She wants them to be proud of her.

Timber is a member of the Black Shamrocks MC. He has fallen for Juliette. He doesn't want to be a secret anymore so tells Juliette she needs to tell her parents that they are together.

Making Choices (Black Shamrocks MC #2)
By: Kylie Hillman
5/5 stars

Lucas, club name Timber, is now the Sargent at Arms for the Black Shamrocks MC since his best friend Mik moved up to be the Vice President. Timber is more level headed than Mik, but just as much if not more lethal than Mik. Timber is also gun-shy when it comes to relationships. He had a horrific experience, which does get explained, and therefor he’s unwilling to put himself out there and always says the unattainable Madeline is his

Book 2 in the Black Shamrock MC series focuses on JJ and Lucas' relationship. JJ is a doctor, working to become a surgeon like her father. She is one of the surgeons that was on duty that operated on Maddi's brother when he was brought in. When she is doing her rounds, Oliver stops her and once again tries to get her to go out for drink with him. After she says no, he keeps coming up with reasons why she should. When Oliver steps over the line with regards to what he says to JJ, what does Lucas ...more

I'm officially dubbing Kylie the Queen of twisted. I can't count the amount of times she broke my heart in this book and her ability to do it so well that I willingly want more. She has this subtle way of making you fall in love with her writing; this isn't the typical couple meets, couple falls in love, couple hits a rough patch, and then everything is perfect. No. These are multifaceted characters- so complex that the harder you dig to find out who they are you don't get layers that crumble, n ...more

INCREDIBLE! Another 5 star read in the amazing Black Shamrocks MC series. This is Timber and JJ's story. They meet at the hospital when one of Lainey's brothers is shot and tortured. Juliette 'JJ' Patrice is the surgeon on call when Joel is brought in. Her father is the head of the hospital and expects Juliette to keep up appearances or else. Lucas 'Timber' Black is the Sergeant-At-Arms for the Black Shamrocks MC. It is his job to protect his club and to punish anyone who crosses them. He is a f ...more

After reading Kylie Hillman's first book in this series, Seizing Control, I waited patiently for her followup. I can't believe I missed it when I came out, but I've read it now, and it was worth the wait.

This book picks up right where Seizing Control left off. Lucas "Timber" Blake has always had a crush on Maddie, his best friends old lady. But when he meets Juliette, his feelings begin to change. Juliette has fallen for Lucas, but she has a hard choice to make. After six months, she still refu

I'm being very honest here. This book is way better than book 1. A ringside view in the true volatile word of MC .
Timber finds a soulmate , Juliette. She's everything he's not. She's elegant , skinny, petite redhead Doctor.
He's burly, huge, rough edged Sargent At Arms of his MC chapter, with a violent temper and sadistic tendencies. He enjoys inflicting pain on his victims before killing them. She administers pain killers before saving them.
Their worlds are as far apart as the poles.
But love
Jackie - Fire & Ice Book Reviews
A much lighter read than book one, but still intense.

I loved every moment. So much suspense going on. I was on edge the entire time. A lot of twist and turns that had me shocked.

Timber and Juliette are very different, but they worked well together. I was rooting for there HEA.

I love it when a book hooks me to the point where I can't stop reading. I devoured this book within a day.

The author has written one amazing book. I highly highly recommend. But make sure to read book one (Seizing Control)

Read this right after finishing the first book, Seizing Control, which was good, but really puts you through the ringer; was a little too much for me at times. I enjoyed Making Choices more, though still had a few issues with it. Can't decide between 3.5 and 4 stars.

There was some angst, but probably the biggest annoyance for me was that Lucas/Timber was in love with Maddi (the heroine of Seizing Control); we know nothing is going to happen there, because Mic/Mad Dog is her guy, but I don't like

I received a ARC of Making Choices by Kylie Hillman for a honest review!

This review Is for Making Choices but before I began let me first start out by saying that the author has been hiding from us for to long.  I mean after reading her first two books I’m looking foward to her books in the future. I can not get over how amazing her first two books are. It’s like you are right there in the mix of everything. So much adventure, you literally get the adrenaline rush. And you get to watch two very

First, I just want to say that although this book can be read as a standalone, if you haven’t yet read Seizing Control (Black Shamrocks MC Book #1), you may find yourself a little lost, since our previous main characters have a lot of interaction on this book, but believe me when I say, " with both books you're in for a wild ride".

However, this story is about Lucas known in the MC world as Timber, and of course Juliette, his Doll. One is killer, pain inflector, while the oth

I read the first book to this series and enjoyed it and was looking forward to the continuing saga to this series. I do believe you need to read the first as not to get lost during this book.

I was not disappointed, this story is an elevated step up to the first.
Timber is your typical biker loyal to his club and Juliette the complete opposite prim and proper and loyal to her stuck up family.

I started to hate Juliette her stuck up attitude thinking she's better than Timber's family of bikers. She

She’s a pretty little doctor who wants to be a surgeon. She has worked her butt off to get to where she is. Her parents have high expectations of her and she refuses to let them down. JJ hasn’t had the easiest childhood after being adopted by her parents at the age of 3, well actually she wasn’t adopted they bought her from drug addicts. They have always held high expectations of her but things were a lot worse when her twin sisters were born.

Juliette Jane "JJ" Patrice is the doctor whose plan is to become a surgeon at the hospital where the father she is continually trying--and failing--to please is chief of medicine. Lucas "Timber" Blake is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Black Shamrocks Motorcycle Club, and the man JJ is attracted to against her better judgement. JJ has plenty of reservations about the MC lifestyle and is desperate to keep her father from finding out about the biker she isn't ready to give up, while Tim

This is the second book in the Black Shamrocks MC series, and it did not disappoint. I have read the first book, and would recommend reading them as a series, but if you chose to just read this book, you wouldn't struggle to pick up the story as this book focuses on Lucas "Timber Blake and JJ (Juliette) Patrice aka doll's story.

Lucas is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Black Shamrocks MC and at 6'9" tall a beast of a man. He is a true alpha male in every sense of the word, although he is a violent m

This is my first opportunity to read something written by Kylie. I had to hurry and buy the first in the series so that I could get my head all the way around her Black Shamrocks MC. I would definitely recommend reading them in order. They are so worth that. I was knee deep in their world from the very first page of the first book and jumped right back in with this one. Kylie writes in a way that you are invested in the lives of these people she has written so well.

Once again another great read from Kylie, I love her style of writing. You really do need to read Seizing Control first.

This book follows on with Timber and Juliette 'JJ's' story and continues to entwine with the previous character's that I've grown to love, Princess aka Lainey and Mad Dog. This is another completely addictive read which kept me on my toes throughout, I didn't want to put this one down I loved every minute. However I was sec

Making Choices by Kylie Hillman is the second book in the Black Shamrocks MC series and characters from Seizing Control are part of the story. However, this story revolves around Lucas and JJ. They meet when the President of the club’s son is brought into the hospital in critical condition and JJ is the intern/surgeon who is responsible for him and Lucas’s job to provide protection.
They each bring baggage with them to this relationship and a lot of obstacles to overcome. How does a harden biker

This series is at the top of my biker romance list right now.
It's not just romanticized in hearts and flowers but has all the gritty realistic problems that comes with the reality of living an outlaw lifestyle. There's no predictability, stupid far fetched plots or ridiculous outcomes. It's real.
Kylie has a way of pulling you in from the beginning an keeping you riveted.

Wow! What an incredibly good book. I was one of those that did not read book 1.However, let me tell you Making Choices is so well written that it didn't make any difference in thoroughly enjoying and understanding this intense read.(I will quickly read book1).
Making Choices is an intense, sexy, and gripping love story between MC Outlaw Lucas and surgical resident JJ. Their love is threatened by the choices they make, and the outcome of those choices. Both are bound by strong family ties, but wh

I was hesitant to start this book, I usually don't read side character books unless I really like them.. This is Timber and JJ's book... We hear his and her back story, and we still get info on Mad Dog and Princess, we see all the shamrocks in this book..

I really struggled with how many stars this book deserved from me. In some ways, I felt it only deserved 3, but for other reasons I wanted to give it five. So I guess 4 is a fair number.

I had a very hard time connecting with JJ through a majority of the book. I understood where she was coming from, mostly, but she really made me furious. I absolutely adored Lucas "Timber" Blake & because of that, the attitude that Juliette Patrice has towards him & the club really messed with my enjoyment of the

Black Shamrocks MC is going through some major stuff at the time. Will relationships survive? Will friendships survive? Will Brotherhood survive? Most important...Will Black Shamrocks survive?

This is the second book in the Black Shamrock MC Series, as a lover of MC reads, this read is a riveting read.

We follow Timber and JJ in this book, and previous characters join us as well. There is turmoil, emotional scenes, sexy scenes and violence, all that you need in a biker read.

Kylie has a way of pulling you into a book and making you want to read more and more, and never put it down.

This style of writing is one that can compete with the rest of biker reads and I look forward to seeing wha
