I am so f**king in love with you, Charlie, that I can’t see straight.

Ex-Commando Deck Johnston has a busy life. He is the boss of a successful construction company, the co-founder and sergeant at arms of the Wounded Souls MC, and a single father to a three-year-old, blue-eyed, raven-haired princess, who has a liking for swearing, toy guns, camo, and pink tutus.

Everything is a mess. Fucking mess. DNF. Totally DNF. I won’t read the next books, because although all members of MC already met their true love they are still sleeping around and in front of them!!!!! They won’t stop hurting them.

This book is seriously hard for me to rate. There were things I absolutely loved about it and things that made me a bit ragey. So I’m settling on 3.5-4 Stars.

I loved Deck most of the time. His devotion to his daughter and then his love for Charlie were beautiful but man could he fuck up at times. Realistic, yes. But it still pissed me off. I think the part that was the worst and almost had me hating him was the scene at the park when Charlie and Shiloh were in danger. I just couldn’t believe th
2.5 stars

This was just an okay read for me. It had somethings I liked and some I really didn't. Not sure yet if I would read the next one in the series.

Dreadful! I give up.

In what world is it okay for a 3 year old to curse and behave like this? It was so overdone it went beyond ridiculous!

MC with FORMER ARMY COMMANDOS and precocious Shiloh

"His Sweetness" by Leah Sharelle was a fun, heartwarming and romantic MC story with all the feels necessary... There was a strong alpha male hero, Deck Johnston and a sweet daycare teacher and ballet instructor, Charlotte aka Charlie aka Sweetness who also happens to be Deck's precocious daughter, Shiloh. This little three year old was precious too everyone in her everyday pink tutu and combat boots or !!! What made this book such an enjoyable r

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK, or decent reads.
He's a wonderful father, we can not deny it.
Our hero always ends up relegating the heroine to the background and putting his daughter as a priority. He even forgets her after the villain attacks them. He leaves her injured and only remembers her existence an hour later.
She spends most of her time apologizing and seeking acceptance.
The secondary characters are interesting and the villain keeps things interesting.

====>Highlights Contains Spoilers
His Sweetness is the first book of a new MC series. It was a lighter MC book, not nearly as gritty as I have come to expect from books of this nature. It was refreshing, but a bit confusing at times. It was made clear these men are on the right side of the law, but then reference things you'd expect from the other side.

His Sweetness is the story of Deck and Charlie. Charlie is Deck's daughter's teacher. The meet for the first time and sparks fly between them. Shiloh is the sweetest little girl,

Deck you know is just entertained by his woman's cuteness, “I’m so jealous of Julie’s curves and the confidence she has in herself. I mean, her breasts are spectacular while mine are still in the teenage girl stages.” Okay now she was babbling, and it was kind of cute..." Deck has a jealousy problem, "my head whipped around to the door of the compound. “Charlie is in there dancing with a guy?” I loved this book, I cannot wait for the other men to get stories because their women are going to make ...more

Deck has two things that are important to him. His daughter, Shiloh, and his MC. When he meets Charlotte at Shilohs school, his world stops. She is breathtakingly beautiful. He doesn’t give her much of a chance before he claims her. Charlotte is in awe. This Alpha male has taken over and she doesn’t know if her heart can take it. He vows to keep her safe and for once she believes. When an enemy threatens to take what is his, the war begins.

WOW! I am so immensely impressed that this is Leah Sharelle’s first book because it was DA BOMB!!! Holy hades did she blow it out of the park. The characters were amazingly likable, the world she built was enthralling, and she pulled me into her story and wouldn’t let me go until it was finished.

Deck is so delicious it is redonkulous! He is a complete badass with a sweet side and vulnerability that made me fall in love. He loves his daughter more than anything and it shows constantly through the

Deck is mine. Back off bitches.

I fell in love with this book from the first chapter. Not for Charlie or Deck, but for Shiloh. Gah, that potty mouthed gorgeous little girl had me wrapped around her finger! I loved this book so damn hard. It has everything a five star book needs. Hot men, motorcycles, fierce women, and a potty mouthed three year old. I couldn't put this book down if I tried, I was so lost in it. Deck. Sigh. Deck. Uber caveman, protector, sexy as sin, I can go on and on about how m
I loved this! I stayed up way too late because I couldn't put it down.
There was in interesting progression in the suspense element to this story that really kept me hooked. Every one of these characters are super interesting and I can't wait to learn more about them all in future books. Deck and Charlie had such a sweet story, and little Shiloh was hilarious. I enjoyed the "good-guys MC" angle, and although these ex-military men stayed on the straight and narrow (as opposed to being a 1% MC) I f

The THREE YEAR OLD says goddamn. I skipped ahead and read the park scene, the h is a doormat and the H is an asshole
This is the first book by this author, but I'd not know it if I hadn't looked it up before reading. This story was so amazing, I read it in one sitting! It is reminiscent of some of my favorite MC stories, but has its own spin.

Deck is a single father, former military, construction worker, as well as Sergeant at Arms for the Wounded Souls MC (so many tropes, all of them favorites!). Charlotte is his daughter's preschool dance teacher, but also a former ballerina, with secrets! The instant attrac

Deck Johnston is an ex-commando, the boss of a successful construction company, and the co-founder and Sergeant At Arms of the Wounded Souls MC. He's also father to the sassy little three year old who loves her pink boots, her cuss words, and making the big strong men around her weak. Deck raises Shiloh as a single parent with the help of the whole MC. They all love the little cutie like she was their own. When he sets his eyes on her dance teacher for the first time, he finds that he wants some

Deck Johnston life revolved around his little three year old Shiloh, she says some surprising things but you gotta love her. The second love of his life is his brothers and family in the Wounded Souls MC. Never did he know that meeting a beautiful Ballerina named Charlotte "Charlie" Jackson was going to change his life. Charlie is so sweet and she fell in love with Shiloh before even meeting Deck but when she met Deck she knew he

This is the first book in the Wounded Souls MC Series by Leah Sharelle. For me kids in books are either a hit or miss and what some think is funny I find completely annoying. Shiloh was supposed to be three years old could say motherfucker with no problem yet she said things like —“I’s , me’s, and brekkie”. It’s one thing to have a kid curse once in a while but most of them have no clue how to use the word. Shiloh however knew exactly how to use each curse word in a sentence perfectly every time ...more

As a massive fangirl of all thing MC I’m always excited to discover a new author who delivers my favorite addiction, and deliver is exactly what Leah Sharelle did with His Sweetness. Full of MC grit, blazing heat, and so. much. sweet. I devoured this book. Unable to put it down I read it all in just a couple hours! It was just that freaking good.

Deck, sweet, sexy, Deck. God, I couldn’t get enough of him. The epitome of biker bada#$, his sweet side with his daughter and Charlie is enough to melt

For a debut novel I was quite impressed by this new to everyone author. The characters were strong and although there is loads of sex the story/plot was good as well. There is loads of excitement and for a clean MC group they do tend to have some other issues going as well. The little girl is adorable and definitely one I would love to have around and with strong female characters I am happy. Great story with strong men and the women who love them I will most definitely be reading the next book ...more

I really need to figure out how to use gifs
This book needs a dumpster fire gif
Dumpster fire aside, I can see reading more in this series if I'm feeling a little petty and in the mood for a skim and laugh

Note to authors:
It's all kinds of fun when local, regional, cultural slang is used. Really. Consider *please* that readers that aren't Australian probably have no idea what many of these charming colloquialisms mean.

First off lets say this is a new series and author for us and we have to say that we loved the first book in this new amazing series and each and every book that came after.

I loved what this club stood for and the members who were part of the MC club.We often take for granted the sacrifices our soldiers make for us to keep us safe and the he** they go

Deck lost the mother of his now three-year-old daughter at her birth. She wasn't his wife but she left him with a gift like none other. Shilo is the darling of the MC. Amazing how six former special forces men and a number of ladies can fit around one tiny finger. She was enough for him. No more losses. That is until he meets her dance teacher, Charlotte. This former dancer, innocent, sweet, loved by his daughter manages to wrap him as tight as Shilo does.

Their connection is instant. Doesn't st

Omg, what a mess. A trainwreck of messdom. I'm sorry, but seriously.
I crack the book open to read a three year old kid talking like she's a 40 year old broad. WHY DO AUTHORS DO THAT?! it's unrealistic and absolutely idiotic.
So, there's that. I'm actually going to copy and paste my tweets I did as I read. I couldn't have wrote a better review.

I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but I eat with my eyes first, and this supposed badass biker alpha is all of four feet tall in the

I love romance. I read constantly. Seriously it’s an obsession. I started reading romance at 12 years of age and haven’t stopped since. My mind is always thinking of new story lines, new alpha’s that will capture their woman’s hearts. I’m in love with love.
