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.

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 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

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.

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!!

I’m loving

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: 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 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

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. Not to mention he had some issues going on with some ...more

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

The Baum Squad is back and better than ever.

I honestly thought there was no possible way that any couple in this series would be able to top Kire and Ky from Slashes in the Snow. Holy wow, I was wrong!

Damon and Liv are seriously amazing. Their connection is passionate, angst-filled and deep-rooted ina lifelong friendship.

Damon is the pretty boy, MC member, alpha hero you would expect from this series. He uses his looks to get by in life. Well, in the areas he can. Howeve

This is Book #2 in the Baum Squad series but can be read as a standalone. We are introduced to a new couple, Damon and Liv. If you want to know the characters in order, it is best to start with Book #1, Slashes In The Snow but it is not necessary.

This is the story of Damon La Rue, a.k.a. Breaker, and Liv. Liv grew up around the Baum Squad MC. Her father, The Bowman, was the club’s bookie. Therefore Liv was raised with Damon and Ky (who is now the club pre

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.

This is part of the Baum Squad but it can be read as a standalone as it focuses on a new couple although if you want to meet the characters in order and not have their stories spoiled it is best to read in order.

This is the story of Damon/Breaker and Liv. Liv actually grew up with the MC as her father was the club’s bookie and was raised with Damon and Ky. We actually start the story when Damon is escorting her to prom at her father’s request. It’s ten years later and she is back hom

**Please note, I was given an ARC for each of these books for an honest review of them. These reviews are my own thoughts and feelings and I have had no financial compensation to provide these reviews to you**

So this book went in a direction I didn’t fully expect it to go. I knew that Damon (Aka Breaker) would need to get some money fast, I also knew that he was in an MC. I know that most MCs are there for each other when the stuff hits the fan, so for him to try to go it alone

Aces High is the second book in the Baum Squad series but the first one I'm reading.

Damon "Breaker" La Rue and Liv Ward have a history, some good, some bad. But that history will hold them together even when they can't. Damon is a manwhore, womazing, asshole who doesn't think twice about leaving a wake of crying women in his past. Liv Ward is the take no shit daughter of The Bowman. But when it comes to Damon she has a soft spot she just can't seem to help.

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.
