I’ve been living on borrowed time since I was born.
My dreams were big. But my reality cut them down to size.
The life I’ve settled for is small.

He’s my forbidden fruit. My guilty pleasure. My greatest danger.

Tpagirl Loves Romance
Iron Heart was the second book in the Ironwood Lords of Carnage MC series by Daphne Loveling.

Dante D’Agostino was the Enforcer for the Lords of Carnage Ironwood MC. He was gorgeous, rugged and gruff. Not one to be messed with.

Tory Lowe was a reporter for the local Ironwood newspaper. She had aspirations as a journalist that covered all of the difficult stories across the world, but something in her past shattered her dreams. Now she was stuck covering fluffy stories that to her, weren’t newswort

"Your heart is made of iron. You just might not know it yet."

Holy Dante and Tori, what a beautiful love story!

An unexpected encounter leads to a beautiful love story between two very different people. There are some twists and turns with MC drama of course but it flows nicely with book 1 as far as the storyline is concerned. I like how this author makes her characters very relatable to the readers. It's like you could feel the love between the two just reading a few sentences. I highly recommen

I am a huge fan of superbly crafted MC romance and Ms. Loveling and her latest installment to The Lords of Carnage MC is quite the book! Whew. This is an unbelievably crafted publication that is sure to steal your breath with the impeccable storyline inside.

ARC Reviewer - This was one of my favorite books that the author has written. It was about Dante, Enforcer of Ironwood Lords of Carnage MC and club, his younger brother Dominic and a journalist Tori who works for Ironwood Post Gazette. Tori first meets Dante while covering a story at his next door neighbor's, then she needs an electrician in home and Dante turns out to be that electrician. They end up being attracted to each other.

Another great book by Daphne Loveling!! Love her MC romance books.
Tori is a journalist who works for a small town newspaper. She always wanted to be the one who traveled and wrote world news for big newspapers but while in college she found out she has a bad heart so there goes her dreams. No man who has found out about her heart has stuck around making her feel defective.
Dante is the enforcer for the MC and not interested in women outside the club and definitely not interested in a relationshi

The Lords of Carnage MC is my favorite MC Series and that alone speaks volume seeing how I try to read every MC book out there, but the others just don't compare to Ms. Daphne ingenious way of writing. Dante and Tori's chemistry started as a slow flame going back to when they were young and just kept building each time they were together until it exploded all l over the pages. Their story will delivered to you a gut wrenching tightness throughout the book never knowing what you'll discover on th ...more

Wow, just wow!!

Five massive stars for Iron Heart! Honest to God, if I could give more, I would!! This story swept me away, Tori, despite what she sees as a weakness, is one of the strongest people I know. This woman stole my heart! Dante.......Lord this man! He is the enforcer for Ironwood Lords of Carnage and as such doesn't want his life to touch that of a 'civilian' but when he meets Tori, will that change?

Dante and Tori share a slow simmering, intense, powerful, sizzling passion. Their romance is filled with deep emotions, drama, action and suspense. These two share an angst ridden road to a HEA that is complicated by secrets, betrayal and lies. I loved these two and thought that they were blistering hot but also incredible sweet together. I found the story very entertaining. It held my attention and kept me eager to keep reading right until the very end. Wickedly wonderful and delightfully delic ...more

Daphne Loveling is absolutely, hands down, one of the best storytellers in the business! She can write a book that catches your attention right away and keep you on the edge of your seat throughout and Iron Heart is one of those amazing books! Dante and Tori are an amazing couple with so much chemistry that you can't help but be drawn to them. This book has Ms. Loveling's signature style...exciting, super sexy with some humor thrown in for good measure. Loved the book and can't wait to see what ...more

I loved the latest from Daphne Loveling and her Lords of Carnage MC world! Tori has lived her life playing it safe and cautious feeling like she is on borrowed time, but all that changes when she has a chance encounter with the enigma that is Dante. Dante is the opposite of everything that is Tori, he's part of an MC, lives life in the fast lane and the last thing he thinks he wants is a woman at his side. Yet that one meeting changes everything more than they realize. I loved going on the ride ...more

Daphne Loveling has blessed us with another book from the "Lords of Carnage Ironwood MC" series and I have to say that this author knows how to keep a reader totally invested in the words she puts to paper and I am no exception! The plot was so well written and planned and the characters were written with such great detail and depth that as I turned each and every page I felt like Tori and Dante kept me totally engaged as their story effortlessly unfolded!

Omg. It gets better and better. Each book in the series are stand alone, but I do recommend reading from the beginning. Dante and Tori’s book is beautifully written. You feel all the emotions throughout the book. Absolutely fall in love with them as a couple. Fast pace and full of entertainment. On opposite sides of the law they find their happy ever ending.

This book brought tears to my eyes and broke my heart and put it back together again slowly. Amazing read that won't leave you feeling empty. Can't wait to read more from her.

I was surprised at the number of typos. I haven't seen this many since her early books. This book was a bit predictable. Then there was the ending. It just didn't flow, very choppy as if the author was in a hurry to get the book finished (which would also explain all the errors/typos).
Just ok

I wanted to like this more. I didn't really feel the love connection between Dante and Tori. Most of the book they weren't even together. They met once, then he is the electrician who fixed her house and they hook up....some things happen and he tells her that he won't be around anymore. Like I said, most of the book they aren't together.

en together.

Well I made it through...

I really debated back and forth between a 3 star rating or a 4. Ultimately I gave it a 4 (duh) because it was really well written and, it was the first one by this author I was able to finish. That being said I feel like there were really some gaping holes in this book. The H/h had all of 3 interactions that we were privy to and then they’re suddenly in love. I know sometimes you have to make allowances for the time we didn’t see, but the author even put in her writing t

Level of steam🔥: in the first story, you do have sex, but not too much. Something I learned about this author is that she writes stories for 5hr stories and not for the sex in it.

I really struggled to believe Dante and Tori's relationship. I don't if it was the pace at the relationship progressed or if I didn't like the two together. Maybe the latter, because I don't like Tori that much. She kept saying she wouldn't let her condition define her, but she did that daily. Constantly being on the defensive and not being happy and grateful for what she has kept her from truly living. D and T didn't give me the feels I got from the other couples in the previous books. Oh well, ...more

Love this series

Read this series in less than two days and I'll be anxiously awaiting the other men to find their women and to see where these other couples to in the future. Loved it and hoping to find another story I haven't read yet.
