He may be a gigantic pain in my ass — since birth — but he’s still damn cute. Too bad he has the reputation of a porn star.

“Leaving so soon?” I look over at the beautiful woman with the wild mane of dark curls. “Unfortunately, yes.”

“Bring it on, Anita.”

“Lisa!” She punches me.

I catch sight of the half-dozen used condoms littered all over the floor as I shrug on my jeans.

That’s one thing about living in LA — there’s no shortage of sunshine or sexual relations.

I tried, god how I tried but the H’s manwhorish way were a major turn off and I ended up DNF ing this novel. His playboy ways are not only off the page but also on the page. There’s an entire scene where he screws his regular, ( bar tender Vanessa ) which disgust me. Why do we have to go through the torture of reading , in detail how he fucks when we already know there is some one else there and he is hung up on her. They are unwanted details and ruin the novel for me.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Aces High by M. Never is book Two in the Baum Squad Series. This is the story of Damon 'Breaker' La Rue and Liv Ward. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Liv and Damon both grew up in the Baum Squad biker gang. Although Liv left when she was around 17 and did not return. But now her father there has passed and she has returned after about 10 years. Liv isn't letting her heart get broken by Damon again so she has her shields up around i ...more

Aces High is the second book in the Baum Squad series written by author M. Never. Each book in this series tells the story of a different couple and can be read as a standalone MC romance. Although, if you are like me and enjoy knowing the backstories, I suggest reading the series in order.  Just know that it’s optional.

Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
This may be one of my favorite couples by M Never. Damon and Liv have known wach other their whole lives. But after shattering her heart, Liv has been away for 10 years. When her father dies, Damon is back to console Liv. Broken or not, their hearts have never forgotten each pther.

Great second chance romance. Damon works hard to earn Liv's trust again. Most of this takes place away from the MC but still has lots of action and suspense. Loved seeing all the MC come to a brother's defense.

Aces High features a rather clunky exposition with a heavy dose of insta-love/drama.

Wow! What a story! This book had me hooked and on the edge of my seat from the moment I started reading! I loved the characters and though that their chemistry was out of this world. There was drama, suspense and some hot steamy moments that made this book a must read for sure!

Aces High by M.Never was the perfect mix of dirty, sexy, dangerous and intense ! The MC Romance captured the very essence of the trope so amazingly. Adrenaline was running high and passion was burning hot.

Livey and Damon were childhood friends as her father took Damon under his wing. They belong to the Baum Squad MC Club family. They had this crush since very beginning but on prom night Damon broke her heart and so they never explored their chemistry. Now years later they meet again at the funer

In this installment of the Baum Squad, we get up close and personal with Breaker, aka Damon.

He is a heartbreaker, hence his name but that is only because he hasn't snagged the one he has wanted and maybe he wasn't ready. When a long-time friend and father figure, Bowman, passes away his time might just be up. Not only does his death signify trouble, but it brings Liv back to his life.

Ten long years ago Damon broke her heart, now satisfied with her life, Liv can't resist his pull again. Wh

Damon “Breaker” La Rue and Liv Ward grew up together in the Baum Squad MC. Their friendship grew into a more adult attraction, but a misunderstanding caused them to go their separate ways. Now years later, both their fathers have passed, and Liv is home for her father's funeral. This is the chance that Breaker needs to show Liv he is a better man, and that they are meant to be together. But Liv doesn't trust easily, no matter what her heart tells her to do.

(audiobook+ebook) It was the first MC romance I really enjoyed. Maybe because it didn’t focus on the MC exactly–quite the opposite actually, as Damon refused to involve his friends in his troubles. Maybe because it wasn’t badly written. Maybe because it was scorching hot–lava level. Maybe because, as an audiobook, the narration gave it a little something that I liked. Maybe all of the above.

I quite liked that the characters are all badass, and definitely not proper. Sure, they can be kind and ge

It's no secret that I am a huge M. Never fan and this 3rd instalment in the Baum Squad series did not disappoint.

I was invested in Damon and Liv’s friends-to-lovers story from the beginning. As the story opens, Damon is screwing his way through life and working dead-end side jobs. While polar opposite Liv is a confident, driven woman on the verge of opening her own art gallery. When the childhood friends reconnected after the death of The Bowman, I found myself excited and hopeful their sexual c

I only discovered this author recently, so I haven’t read a whole lot of her backlist books, but these books I’ve read recently have been phenomenal in plot, characterization and just overall appeal!

I loved the story of Liv and Damon. It had just enough spark to keep my girlie parts singing and enough drama/suspense to keep me reading in one sitting. You won’t be able to help yourself. It’s a race against time so it will just suck you in, or at least it did me!!

It’s been a while since I read the first book in the series so I had forgotten some of the character’s backstory but I was still able to enjoy this book and follow along with what was going on.
This series isn’t as dark as some other books that this author has written so don’t be afraid to pick it up.

Two stubborn people that are perfect yet imperfect. This couple of misfits have exactly what it take to drive the other apart. Dangerous bikers and past heart aches make for one heck of a read.
Damon has two weeks to not only save his life but the life of the woman he fell for and broke. Surviving and making her see who he is on the inside apart form the playboy he has been for the last decade or so.
Liv has always held a torch for Damon, but falling for him again isn't only dangerous it is a rec

I wanted to love this one as much as I loved Snowfall and Slashes in the Snow but unfortunately it was just okay for me. I found myself more interested in Ky and Kira and Gerard in the book than the two main characters.

I think what bothered me the most was Damon pushed his MC brothers away not wanting to get them involved in the problems he inherited from his father, but when they show up to help him anyway, he abandons what they are trying to accomplish to save him for a second chance

Aces High: A Baum Squad novel is a tumultuous tale of mayhem, madness, and insatiable passionate love. M. Never has continued to wow and mesmirise me with her powerful words and dramatic characters. It truly was a mindblowing, body bending drama that left me angry, turned on and mighty frustrated. And let me tell you, it was worth all the stress I felt because I was sneakily reading when I was supposed to be doing…… other things 😉

I'm struggling SO hard with this review, I'm a fan of this author but this story just didn't do it for me. I feel so guilty saying that but the truth is Snowfall was the story that really hit the mark, even though it was a prequel, that novella was packed with feels. I just haven't connected as well with the first two books in this series and I really hoped this book would bring that connection. While I like the characters and somewhat enjoy the storyline, it all just feels repe

This was much better than the first book. However, it still was missing something that drew me to this author in the first place. It might just be this series, but for some reason the writing style seems different. I'm not connecting to the story the way that I usually do.

That being said, even though this isn't my favorite by this author, I still enjoyed the book.

OH MY HELL! M. Never penned another amazing story in the Baum Squad series, and I will NEVER EVER get enough! It all starts out with Liv's father, The Bowman, making Damon take her to her senior prom when she wanted to go stag with all of her friends. Something happened that night, which destroyed their friendship, but before it was revealed, Ms. Never fast forwarded many years, where Damon, aka Breaker, was just simply put, a total man whore.

Breaker and Liv are seriously hot!! M. Never kicks it up a notch in this second installment of the Baum Squad series!!

With suspense, steam, and tons of feels, this was a great read and had me instantly sucked in. I absolutely love this crew and the loyalty they have to one another. Each character plays a special part in making this story what it is.

And all these alpha men together in one room was completely awesome. These guys will have you laughing out loud with their crazy banter and hilariou

Aces High was a great 5 star read and book two in the Baum Squad series.
This is Damon and LIv’s story.

Liv has a connection to the MC, her father was the bookie. She grew up around the MC along with Damon. When she returns 10 years later for her father’s funeral she comes face-to-face with Damon again.

Damon has only given his heart to one woman and when she returns to town, he can’t help but hope that they can finally connect.With the death of Liv’s father
