4 stars!


In this anthology, I read Claiming Chaos by Kim Bailey. I love Kim’s writing and her romance novels, but this book, it was totally different than what she normally writes. This was darker, more of a romantic suspense and I was pulled in from the very start. I loved Kira and Bodhi’s story and I can’t wait for more!
“I like you when you’re feisty.”
“Do you now?”
“You’re stunning when you’re ferocious and wild. Deadly,”

Kira and Bodhi meet in an unconventional way. It’s wild, crazy,

Father Damon Russo has done his best to serve God and the church and forget about the life he left behind. When Ivy Mercier stumbles into his confessional, his life is turned upside down. Ivy is involved with some dangerous people and she is desperate to get away. When she discovers Damon has a secr

You know that feeling you get when you watch an older movie with the bad guy, the beautiful woman and they both can't get enough of each other. The setting could be like an old Bogart movie with Lauren Bacall...all smoldering and sensual...she, the victim who was in danger or done wrong...and he, the detective or criminal who was there for her, whether she wanted him to be there or not.

☆☆☆Review of Absolution by Keri Lake☆☆☆
“I absolve you of your sins.”

Oh, my!!!! How it is possible to write such an intricate story, to built up the anticipation, to gave life to multidimensional characters and stir strong emotions in a novella is completely beyond me. But Keri Lake did it, mastered it, another proof of her incredible talent.

I found myself captivated from the first pages by the dark and gritty atmosphere of Absolution. The mystery and chilling revelation surrounding the first

My review is a based on one book in this anthology: CLAIMING CHAOS by Kim Bailey.

”Run or fight. Live or die. Claim chaos or lose her forever.”

Bodhi is a for hire killer. He tries to keep his life as uncomplicated as possible by living simply and not having attachments.

Kira is a complicated woman. Her sister is missing and left behind a little girl. Kira is on a mission to find her sister and keep her niece safe.

Their worlds get tangled and Bodhi’s mission becomes helping Kira. There are
Wow! What an experience. I'm not even sure how to review this because there are so many great stories from so many authors. Each one unique, each one intriguing. The best part of anthologies for me is getting to find new authors and I've definitely done that with 'Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology'.

If reading about bad boys and finding new authors is not enough to get you to buy this, then do what I did and pre-order this anthology because 100% of the proceeds from this set will be donated to St. Jude

Absolution by Keri Lake

Rated 4.5 Stars

Absolution is a dark, depraved, hot and taboo tale with a bit of actipn. I loved it especially the dual nature of Damon, he's unlike any priest I've ever met. I also loved that even though it's short there's complexity to the characters. I highly recommend to those who love dark, taboo stories.

This author, short or long story, never disappoints to introduce us to multi-dimensional characters, twisted story lines and justice, meted out in a most unconventional way. This one is definitely not for the faint of heart, full of unexpected and cringe-worthy moments, Father Damon and Ivy still have plenty of story and I'm looking forward to every single w

Review of Absolution by Keri Lake

Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I know that seems so cliché to write, but it is so fitting for this story.

If you not had the pleasure of reading anything by Keri Lake before, this small novella/short story is the perfect look into what you will get when you read her stories. Keri is one of my go-to authors for anything she writes.

In Absolution we find two people - a man who chose to become a priest when he could no longer fight the demons tearing away insid

Good lord, have mercy. This collection of reads definitely has something for everyone...or everything for one person...whichever the case may be there is nothing better than the bad boys who are sssoooo good at the things that they do. When they are bad..they are very bad, but sometimes being bad can feel sooo good. And it does in these stories, well for the person on the receiving end of their red hot passion that will no doubt set your pages on fire and have you reaching for a fan (or cold sho ...more

Review of Absolution by Keri Lake:

Gah!! Keri Lake did it again with this amazing new story. Absolution was everything!! Dark, disturbing, taboo, forbidden and so erotic. I could not stop reading as I was hooked on every word of Damon and Ivy's story. 

If you've read this author before you know to expect the unexpected. That is one of the reasons why she is an autoclick purchase for me. Her writing is flawless and the subject matter of her stories is unapologetically gritty and intense. Lake does

SOOOOO many stories!

I started at the beginning with this one and read Dalton by Lane Hart.

This is the first time I have read something by this author and won't be the last. Dalton is clearly not the first the book in the series but it can be read alone. You know there is more to the things that ATF agent, Peyton, has dug up but you get just enough information not to feel lost but to want to go back and get the full-scoop.

Dalton is the MC's treasurer, the money man with a pretty face. He uses t

5 Pecheresse stars!

descriptionC’mon, pécheresse, let me hear you scream.” Head kicked to the side, her moans heighten, become intense, bouncing off the walls with every slam of my dick. “Oh, God!”“There is no God here, Ivy. Only me.”“Damon! Please, Damon!”

I don't know where to begin or what to say about this book other that it was hands down the best I read

"I need to feel what it’s like to be ravished, overwhelmed in all the wrong ways when a man can’t help himself. The stuff romance novels are made of."

Amazing! Just absolutely amazing! You get an array of everything from hardcore MC to dark, funny, romantic, sweet, thrilling, edge of your seat, you pick it and it will be there. A superb group of authors to bring together for an anthology, I look forward to more from each of them. I even found a couple new to me authors and that always makes me happy.

Cellar Door by Trisha Wolfe:
The Cellar Door hides many secrets. Some will be exposed to the light, others will be sealed in darkness forever.

Vengeance and Revenge meet up in this stellar story of two souls seeking to right the horrors of their past, only to find that not everything is as it seems. And neither is this story. In true Trisha Wolfe fashion, she delivers a thrilling story with complex characters that

4.5 stars. Absolution by Keri Lake
If you’re a fan of Keri Lake’s Vigilantes series, then this follows that same vein with dark elements and a forbidden relationship. Definitely a page turner, super hot and entertaining with enough punch packed in a shorter length novel. There's also the fine line of straddling moral ethics where things aren't always so black and white and people aren't who they always appear. I was completely engrossed in this story because I knew where I wanted it to go but he

The Savage Kings MC series has quickly become a MUST READ series for me and each book pulls me further in. Dalton's story was no exception and definitely had me captivated and enraptured by this opposites attract romance. Dalton is the "pretty boy modelesque" member that handles the books and by looks would never guess is in the MC.

Absolution by Keri Lake

4.5 stars

So what can I say Keri just works for me, her stories suck me in and don't let go till the end. Absolution is Keri's contribution to the Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology so it's definitely a lot shorter than her usual work. Damon is a priest with a tragic past and Ivy is a young woman who made a deal with the devil that changed the course of her life. The chemistry between these two was explosive and I loved every minute but I'm desperate for more especially after tha
For Keri Lake's Absolution

5 Darkly Sinful Stars!

I don't want to jinx it, but my 2019 has started out with a major bang in the reading department. I've had to honor of landing on three solid 5-star reads in a row. I don't think that has ever happened. Absolution, by Keri Lake, was the third, and let me tell you, I finished it almost 18 hours ago and still haven't stopped thinking about it!

Now this is what I call an outstanding anthology. I mean these bad boys will melt your heart and melt a few other things (wink wink) as you read along. I must admit that I picked up this anthology because it has several authors that I love and follow and I wanted to keep up with what they had going on. And trust me when I say those stories didn’t disappoint.

Another exciting thing for me about the “Wanted and Outlaw Anthology was the stories from the new authors that I’d never read. There was no
