Sissy's Romance Book Review
Unleashing Hound by Harley Stone is book 8 in the Dead Presidents MC Series. This is the story of Mila and Hound. I thought this could be a standalone book if you wish to do so. Mila is a young women who escaped the Cult she has been living in when she was younger. Now she lives in Canada working as a school teacher but also has a second job that is more dangerous working as an escort. Mila starts to feel threaten when two people are killed related to the escort service and she gets a strange em ...more

UNLEASHING HOUND begins and ends with pain....Physical for Hound...Emotional for Mila...This story really spoke to me, because I deal with physical pain every single day of my life,....Harley Stone did a good job describing everyday pain...Not “fixing” it for a happier story, made the story more real for me...Pain is the third character in a relationship, and she’s written exactly that...♥️🌼🔥

Unleashing Hound by Harley Stone is the 8th book in The Dead President Series.
Love this series and Hound and Mila’s story.
Both Hound and Mila had a heartbreaking life.
Hound is a Navy veteran wounded and ex-addict trying to live in a world filled with pain and self doubt. Poor Hound has gone through so much. I wanted to hug him and take his pain away. He was such a good person.
I’m so happy he got his HEA. He deserved it.
It took some time for me to like Mila. I didn’t know what to make of her. B

I had issues with this one and it was all due to Mila. I sort of liked her at first, but once she ran to Seattle, she turned into a raging bitch. You never knew which Mila you were going to run into. I get that she had issued from her past, but my god, the woman would turn on a dime, giving those around her whiplash. I figured out who was giving Mila trouble the first time his name came up, so obvious.
Hound was a bit better, but his whole woe is me got old fast.

Unleashing Hound is book 8 in the Dead Presidents MC by Harley Stone. It focuses on the charcaters Mila and Hound. Hound is ex-Navy, but has been left broken, is a recovering addict and has very low self esteem and worth. He is just starting off with the Dead Presidents MC, a club which helps former military people get back on the right path, gives them a sense of self and a brotherhood, all of the things which Hound needs. He is just starting to find his place as a prospect when out of the blue ...more

I just love this series - if you haven’t started it, it’s a total Must Read Series (IMHO). The Dead Presidents MC, is made up of former Military Men that came together to help other servicemen who needed a helping hand, in one form or another, once their military careers were over. Their cause is awesome and the work the MC does both in house and in the community is amazing. Don’t get me wrong, the storylines still have action and suspense, it’s just the helping hands of the brothers that grab y ...more

Hound deserved better.
Mila was a selfish self absorbed prostitute,”demimonde”,sane difference . She acted like she knew it all ,when really she didn’t know poo and she was a complete and utter TSTL.
The dumb but know all itch is realizing that her best friend and last client were killed by someone going after her and yet is having a hissy fit at being protected.

Hound and Mila's story was so amazing! While my heart hurts for them both, and what they each have endured, their story is absolutely perfect! There was just enough drama, just enough danger, to make the story exciting, without overshadowing the internal struggle they were both dealing with.

Hound gave his everything to the Military, and was left a broken man, trying to cope, unsuccessfully, on his own. He tried everything, and was spiraling in a world of addiction, and pain. His brothers, his M

Hound is an inspiration.


The brief glimpse we had of Hound in the previous books was of him at his worst. He had been reduced to drug and alcohol addiction to try and cope with pain management. 


This book looks at not long after he gets out of rehab and is trying to do his best prospecting for the club. Its clear he is still struggling and that doesn't really feel he fits in. In that respect I really found it to be  unique as all the others had there quirks but weren't really shown like this.

A True Hero

Hound has just come through a very dark part of his past when he was given a medical discharge from the Navy that he loved so much. It was due to the extreme pain he dealt with from his back injury that led him down that slippery slope of prescription meds and booze. Now he is a prospect for the Undead Presidents MC made up of veterans who are out to help other veterans with Hound being one of them. His only requirement is not to use.

The Dead Presidents MC is made up of former military men who help each other, and other veterans once their careers are over. To me, these guys are the best, as they provide so much acceptance to those veterans who need more help than they're given. Hound was wounded in war, which started him on an addiction path, which ultimately ended his military career, so not only is he battling addiction, but also has no self esteem anymore & just when he's at his lowest, he reaches out to this MC, and is ...more

You will want to add this to your TBR list. I really, really hope that you add it to your list and the read it as soon as you get a chance. Both main characters have been through a lot. It was wonderful to see them earn their happiness. They had to go through a lot to find peace. I was happy to be along for the ride.

Hound is a prospect for the Dead Presidents MC. He needs their support to make it day to day. Seriously injured on a ship and to stubborn to speak up, he pays daily for his mistake.

Hound & Mia... Oh goodness, how do I even begin?? Well, I guess with the beginning of this story. For Hound, the things he's going through I completely could empathize with him, as I have horrible chronic pain issues. My heart broke for him, and I just wanted to wrap him up in a (gentle) hug!

For Mia, it starts out w/ one of my hard no's - which had me a little worried about how I would feel about the rest of the story. This is one of my favorite series, with some of my favorite characters, and

I seriously adore all the characters in this series and Hound and Mila are no different.
Two broken people, one physically, one mentally and emotionally, doing whatever they need to, to survive. Both Hound and Mila are filled with self-doubt, they've both overcome things from their past and have learned to keep people at arm's length as a self-preservation tactic. Something happens though, the more they are around one another, the more they want to be. Until....they don't.

The Dead Presidents MC is a group of veterans who have banded together to form a brother hood much like what they all had in the service. Hound had intended to be a lifer in the Air Force, but two brutal accidents left him barley able to walk let alone serve. The excruciating pain he is constantly in left him dependent on pain meds, to the point he is addicted.

Hound and Mila

When I read the first line of the blurb "Pain is a relentless master." I had no idea how much the story would affect me and how true the line would prove to be. Ms. Stone describes the physical pain Hound experiences as well as the emotional pain Mila lives. Can the two broken people find a path to relief and love?

The support of the club is unwavering. There are surprises and a master of evil. The steam and chemistry are strong and real. Hound has gone through so much and deserves

Wow! Can I just simply say how much I loved this book? Hound has had some traumatic injuries to his back. And as a recovering addict, he deals with constant pain. He’s a prospect only at this point with the Dead Presidents MC, still very new to the club. Then you add in Mila, Morse’s cousin, and things get really interesting. The best description of this book has to come from Ms. Stone’s own teaser. It states “He’s broken and she’s a mess, and that’s not even their biggest problem.” That said (o ...more

I almost gave up on this book - I really struggled to get into the story.
I'm so glad I stuck it out.
Hound deserves to be happy even though he doesn't think he deserves it. Mila too deserves to be happy, and thankfully dropped her walls enough to see that Hound was a good guy.
So many of our Soldiers, Sailors and Marines come home irrevocably changed and often in immense pain. I appreciate the care the author has taken with each story to portray these hurt souls who deserve so much than our words

4 1/2 Stars! Book eight in the Dead Presidents MC series. Can be read and enjoyed as stand-alone. Full length told in dual POV with HEA. The Dead Presidents are a motorcycle club where all members are military vets. Each book is about a different member and secondary characters are the same throughout the series. Hound was someone I loved immediately, but Mila was hard to like for a lot of the story. There isn’t a lot of MC drama in this book just two lonely broken adults. Sweet & emotional!

This book was okay, but I just couldn’t connect with the characters. Hound and Mila both suffer daily after a debilitating injury for him, and a very hard childhood for her. They are each just trying to survive as life keeps kicking them down. Will they be able to work through their demons and find their way to each other? The mystery was very predictable, and I had it figured out pretty much from the get go. Some of the inner dialogue when everything came to a crescendo, I found kind of ridicul ...more

This authors writing just keeps getting better and better throughout the series!! I am so in love with Hound and Mila! They are two broken souls coming together. One has emotional damage and the other physical, but can their relationship start to heal them? They have the unwavering support of the club but will it be enough? This is an emotional read and make sure you have your tissues ready. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next!
