REVIEW - Illusive (Storm MC #6) by Nina Levine

Title - Illusive (Storm MC #6)
Author - Nina Levine








Synopsis



He’s been burnt by love.

Griff Hawkins keeps his pain locked away and the ghosts of his past buried even deeper. Three years ago, he chose the Storm MC as his family and accepted the ways of their violent world. These days, he lives his life with one rule – don’t get attached to anyone but his club.

She longs to be loved.

Sophia Barnes aches to know real love, and lives her life with arms wide open, ready to embrace the possibilities that come her way.

When Griff’s past is exposed and his place in the club is jeopardised, he fights for his family the only way he knows how, regardless of the consequences. That is, until he meets the woman who brings him to his knees, giving him something to lose.

Can they teach each other to leave the sins of the past behind or will Griff's demons dictate their future?
 







What I thought

We're back at the Storm MC's clubhouse, and all is not well. There have been a lot of changes since our last big visit in 'Slay' (Although there is 'Sassy Christmas' which is a free catch up in between).

Marcus is out the way, but Scott is still having to deal with fall out within the Storm guys. Their is discontent and failure in the ranks and it needs to fixed. When Scott discovers one his most trusted Brother Griff has deceived him, he needs the truth, but Griff telling the truth is not easy for him.
"Let's go fuck shit up, Cole. I've had enough of pussyfooting around; it's time to get down to business."
Griff has had a hard life to put it mildly, but he has found a level of content with the Storm boys, until things start unravelling around him. He is forced to reveal his background and just hope he gets the the support of his boys after fours years of lying to them. 
"I walked the distance between my bike to the meeting point, surprised to see Blade with Scott for me, but I should have realised this was the meeting point we set up when the three of us plotted to take down Marcus, so it was only natural for Scott to choose it if he was bringing Blade into something now. But what the fuck did Blade have to do with anything going on between Scott and me?"
In the midst of all the drama surrounding him, he meets Sophia, his aunts neighbour. She's unlike the women he knows, but he cant seem to shake her from his mind.

Sophia's life has been turbulent, but she's comfortable now. She has a nice home, good neighbours and has a teenage sister she never knew she had but her life's about to get a shake up in the form of the mother who abandoned her as a child.


These two emotionally fraught people are drawn together by a hot chemistry and find they cannot be drawn apart, only they can help heal each other?

REVIEW - Divine Vices - Melissa Parkin



TITLE - Divine Vices


AUTHOR - Melissa Parkin



Release Date - September 29th 2015


Synopsis:


The last thing sixteen-year-old Cassie Foster needs is trouble, but that doesn’t stop him from finding her. 

Nine months after the tragic accident that killed her mother and sister, this high school junior just wants a fresh start. Settling down in the quiet town of New Haven, Maine, she’s found peace at last…until the new resident bad boy, Jackson Matthews, comes into the picture. Arrogant, sarcastic, and devastatingly sexy, he’s the very last thing Cassie wants to entertain. Romance was never part of the plan. But when terrifying circumstances drive these two together, she finds herself further in over her head than thought possible. As local girls begin disappearing, Cassie can’t help but wonder if it’s just a coincidence that everything started when this blue-eyed Casanova strolled into town. Will falling into Jackson’s arms mean she’ll be falling victim to a real lady-killer…or worse?

The answer will open the door to a world she never thought possible.



My Review:


Divine Vices is a paranormal romance that I would put in a YA category. 
This book has a real mystery feel to it, which I personally love. There is plenty of action and paranormal activity along with some definite twists. This is Book 1 in a series so be prepared to be left wanting more.

Divine Vices is about a 16 year old who is struggling in life after the devastating loss of her mother and twin sister. She is dealing with issues related to coping with grief. She has two best friends who love her and are trying their best to support her. I love her best friends because they stick by her no matter what. I think the author did a great job by having these two characters in the book by Cassie’s side.

What did I loved most about this book? The plot twists. This book is far from predictable, which surprised me thoroughly. I was totally expecting a different ending, but I am not disappointed. The way the author uncovers more of the story at a slow pace is delectable. It is like watching a flower in slow bloom. You want to see more, but you also know if it is rushed it will end too soon and you won't truly be able to enjoy its beauty. Oh and the major plot line was on point. I never saw the ending coming and when I got to it, I had to reread it a couple of times before I could truly believe what I read. The author went there and I loved every minute of it.

The character development was crazy in this book, but in a very good way. Jackson is the new boy in school who takes an instant liking to Cassie. Jackson is mysterious on his own, so when we get to see him interact with Cassie, it has readers on the edge of their seats. Part of me wondered if Cassie was involving an innocent teen boy in her crazy life. Then there is Ian, her best friend. For a while, I wasn’t sure what was going on with him, but by the end of the book, I liked him.
The only thing I didn’t like about the book is that we didn’t really see her father as much as I thought we would. Cassie is going through a devastating time, and I thought that maybe her father would check in a bit more with her since she is all he has left. With that being said, the author did show that he cared in other ways and this was just a minor issues that was personal for me, and might not effect others.

Overall, Divine Vices was a great book. When I agreed to read it, I didn’t read the blurb and opted to be surprised by the book. I do this sometimes to truly get a feel for the authors writing. I was not disappointed. At first, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised as events unfolded. I would recommend this book to others who like YA Paranormal Romance.

Favorite Quotes:

“As Franklin P. Jones would have said, ‘The trouble with being punctual is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.’”

“I love it when you talk like that.” 

– Cassie and Ian, Divine Vices

“Because, guys like you make women feel inferior. An that standard is complete horse pucky! If a man has countless partners, he’s honored with the distinguished label of ‘Casanova,’ but if a woman has even a quarter of those encounters, she’s immediately deemed as an ‘Untouchable.”

– Gwen, Divine Vices

“.. And secondly I can think of plenty of other things I would rather do to occupy my time than wasting it with you.”

“Like what?” he smirked.

“Gee, I don’t know. Sticking a paperclip into an electrical outlet. Playing in traffic. Laying out on the railroad tracks, perhaps. All would be better choices than you.”

– Cassie and Jackson, Divine Vices.

REVIEW - Capture by Rachel Van Dyken

Title - Capture
Author - Rachel Van Dyken






Synopsis

Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.
But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.

Dani lives anything but a normal life.
Her sister is married to one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Her best friends are rockstar duo AD2.
And she has more love around her than most people experience in a lifetime.
But that doesn't change the fact their parents are dead.
Or that it's her fault.

It seems her new normal is being a mute, living on the inside, unable to actually communicate on the outside.
That is until Hollywood’s newest heartthrob Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant for the summer.
He's gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.
But that doesn't stop her from wondering...if things were different...would he want her?
If she was whole, would he be the other half?
 







What I thought

This is my very first Rachel Van Dyken book, I'v heard the hype, and I thought I want in.

After reading this I just feel a bit in limbo. It wasn't bad, by and stretch but it wasn't great for me either. Firstly it was a spin off to another series, which I didn't know before I read it, so there were all these characters and all this back story that went right over my head. Secondly, the whole story seemed to be paced good until the last 20% then there just felt like a mad rush to get it all in. But that's just mu opinion and quality of writing wise it excelled, so I imagine to someone who has followed the previous stories, this would be belter!

Dani is a 17 year old girl who after a tragic accident has developed selective mutism, Linc is a hollywood heartthrob, friend of the family and her new boss. Not at all awkward! 
"My dad always said nerves mean you're alive. So... today, prove you're living. Don't think of anything else other than getting that across. Movies should be reflections of real feelings, real life. Show life."
The communicate via text message and develop a sorta good working relationship after getting off to a rocky start, feelings start growing on both parts, but its not acted upon until Linc unwittingly breaks down Dani's barriers. In doesn't end happily after there though. there are more hurdles for these two and we are introduced to Zane, a Unique and interesting character who I wish was my best buddy.
"Just because I don't eat when you're around doesn't mean I don't eat. How else could I look this good? Marshmallow diets don't produce muscle, high school. Don't schools teach you anything anymore"

REVIEW - Edge, Episode One by Jamie Magee

Title - Edge, Episode One
Author - Jamie Magee




Synopsis



Death came first...

When Reveca first crossed King she knew her heart was stolen. She'd never get over the likes of him. Not a warrior who understood the power within her and flamed it into life--a man who could read her soul with one gaze.

She was right.

He was ripped from her side, and she was imprisoned. The world around her died.

In a new life, in a new world, the pain was still as rich as the day it first tore her in two.

The dead call her the Queen of Darkness. To the living she's the Pentacle Daughter, the only female member of the Pentacle Sons MC. Both were well aware that she was a witch better left uncrossed.

The balance between the wars her and the Sons fought with both the mortals and immortals fueled the adrenaline they all craved--needed, but it never tested them...that is until King returned days after the Club was shaken to its core by a sickening betrayal.

As the past and present collide, the stakes have never been higher for Reveca, or the Sons.




What I thought


When an email landed with the opportunity to read and review a book that was a mix of Biker and Paranormal. I was like "What, Really???" I mean, these are two genres I adore, so having them both together.... SIGN ME UP!!!
"One thought. One focused thought enhanced with the raw power of her soul bolted forward, making contact with the flames. The explosion was instantaneous. The grief would be everlasting."
And I wasn't disappointed! I was confused tho, there is so much going on, so much information It was all a bit much for a part one, that said, I know that part one is just opening the door to a long series so the busy does make sense.

So, Reveca is all witch and had powers, she is also the princess of the Pentacle Sons MC. She is a woman scorned, not to be messed with and neither are the MC. Together they're a real force to be reckoned with to the living and the dead. The two words collide in spectacular fashion when a blast from the past renters her life and shakes everything around her to the core. When faced with her past, how will this queen of darkness react.

Err, not well :) She has to make a deal for a soul in order to save her fellow dark friend Grandee,  but this soul is not just any soul. This soul changes everything!
"She lifted her eyes to his, saw the dark pools reverently searching hers."
Steady pace, action, mystery, drama and intrigue from the get go, this is a series, I may have to follow!

"That was an easy out, that Reveca didn't want to give him. Going to jail would be a paradise compared to what she wanted him to endure."

REVIEW - Tyrant (King #2) - T.M. Frazier



TITLE - Tyrant (King #2)


AUTHOR - T.M. Frazier





Synopsis:



I. Remember. Everything.

Only now I wish I didn't.

When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.

But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed.

Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.

I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.

I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

He's already saved me in more ways than one. Now it's my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.

Even if that means marrying someone else...



Tyrant is a full length novel at 80,000 words.
 



My Review:


*Deep Breath* WOW!!!!!

That was one hell of a wild story. I received it yesterday morning, and was dying to get stuck in. So stupidly picked it up at 9:30pm last night, knowing full well I wouldn't be able to stop. And yup 1:00am and I was finished and my brain was fried.

I seriously am floored by just how good this book (and series) has been. I was late to read King, but once I read that I was literally hanging out for this book, I needed the conclusion of King and Pup's story. So many things had started to unravel at the end of King, and by the time Tyrant started, there was crazy amounts happening, all at once.

It felt like Tyrant was concluding so many parts of the story, but also opening up so many more new ones. The twists and turns, and reveals were like lightning in this book. Coming thick and fast at one point, that my mouth was constantly gaping like a fish. So incredibly clever, the way things all worked out, and I hadn't guessed any of the big twists. It was that well written and disguised.
I love how the characters that you find yourself suspicious of, turn out to be the good ones, and the ones you should be suspicious of but aren't, show their true colours in spectacular fashion! In an epic showdown, to beat showdowns.

There was no slow or down parts in this book, like when you feel you can put down the book, and take a break. There was none of that. It was full on action from page 1, hence how I ended up reading the whole lot in one go. It was thoroughly addictive.

As you may have guessed already, I'm not going to mention any of the story in this review. Literally any comments on content would be a spoiler. Tyrant is book 2 in a 2 book series, you HAVE to have read King, and Tyrant is a conclusion and unravelling of all that has gone for all the characters involved. Memories returning, guilty parties unveiled, shocks thrown out left, right, and center. Don't expect to catch your breath, it's crazy full on in the very best ways possible.

One thing I did learn, a character is brought in for a small part in Tyrant, that I now know is from T.M. Frazier's first series, and just from that small part, I HAVE to go and purchase that book and read more about the characters that left such an impression on me.

I literally don't think I can recommend this book any more that I already have, you seriously need to go and buy this book and read it ASAP. It's a whirlwind of all things bad, mixed up and coming out as everything awesome. That makes no sense I know, but just know it's addictive, and the very best conclusion and ending to an incredible first book.  It will leave me completely frazzled for days, and nothing will match up to the sheer awesomeness of this book in a hurry. You need to experience the rest of King and Pup's story as soon as possible. It's incredible.



I never expected to fall in love with King. My captor, my tormentor, my lover, my friend, my world. But I did.

REVIEW - The Same Deep Water - Lisa Swallow



TITLE - The Same Deep Water


AUTHOR - Lisa Swallow






*RELEASED ON AUGUST 26TH*


Synopsis:


Once, I wanted to die. That was the night I met Guy.

The strange man with flowers stepped from the shadows and saved my life.


Guy. Dimpled smile. Body of a surf god. Smart and funny.Running out of time.


We became travelling companions through life, ticking off items on our bucket lists. I’d hidden from happiness for years and kept my life under strict control. Guy showed me how to step into the world and experience more. He brought light into the shadows and helped me through the darkness.


I became Phe again. I lived.


There’s just one problem.


We fell in love and this wasn’t part of our plans.


I thought I could cope with our uncertain future until Guy revealed a secret. His betrayal changed everything.


Sometimes, believing the lies we tell ourselves is easier than dealing with the truth.
The Same Deep Water is a new adult romance set in Australia. This is the story of two people living in the present and accidentally creating a future neither of them can see, and learning ten things on a bucket list are just the edge of the world they could have.



*The book partly deals with mental health issues which may include triggers for some readers*






My Review:




Every so often, you come across a book that leaves a mark. Not necessarily because it's the sexiest, dirtiest, darkest, or even most romantic. But because it touches you in a way other books haven't. Perhaps it hits at something you recognise, or something you don't want to recognise, or maybe it just makes you realise that there are others out there who have struggles too, even if they are fictional. It still leaves it's mark, and sticks in your mind far longer, than the same books you read day in and day out.

"How incredibly sad that something so beautiful shines the brightest just before it dies" he says
"Some of the stars are long gone, with the light from their death just reaching us."

The Same Deep Water, is one of those books. It wasn't a conventional love story, a light and breezy easy beach read, or even a hairy gorgeous man tearing off on a huge bike, throwing his torn clothes at ladies sighing at the side lines. Nope, it was so much more.

Right from the first chapter, this book touched me, where other books had left me kinda bored and numb. It's hard to explain how a book can leave such a powerful impression, but upon reading this book you would see it straight away.

"Why are you always so serious in the dark?" I whisper and touch his cheek.
"Because you can't see me properly."
"I think I see more of you than you realise"

It's the story of two people with heavy hearts, heavy minds, and painful pasts. They both have secrets and struggles they need to battle through daily. It's not a dance on the rainbows, whilst sniffing the flowers type of love story. It's a love story that is real, because it deals with the harsh and ugly stuff, that happens to so many people, but usually is hidden away. In this book we see how these two people deal with all their own obstacles and demons, to be able to enjoy life and love. Neither of them has had it easy, and their pasts are full of pain and sadness. But through all the heartbreaking parts, there is also a developing friendship and later love, that makes this story so beautiful and heartwarming.

We say so much to each other yet so little, on the edge of each other's lives. He tells me I'm his, but I don't think he's mine.

I'm not going to go in to details and summaries on this story, as it's perfect without prior knowledge. But I highly recommend it, if you love to read stories that step out from the conventional or the normal. Ones that show all aspects of life, even the uglier and painful hidden parts, the sides of us we hide and don't like to talk about. But what I loved was how reading this book, makes you realise you're not alone. I know that sounds strange, but it's almost like there is something in this story, that could help readers, make them realise they aren't the only ones who suffer, and show how others who suffer, eventually get through rough patches, and find happiness.

But anyway, that's enough of that sappy stuff, at the end of the day this book is incredibly well written, it's honest, beautiful and captivating. Not to mention the stunning scenery and background to all the places Guy and Phe travel to, whilst on their journey through their bucket lists together. Makes you want to go find some gorgeous beaches, and attempt to surf, badly if you are me. I'm also thinking maybe I should write a bucket list, never really thought of it before. This book is most definitely inspirational.

**Just to be clear, this book is not a ugly cry, break-your-heart ending. Yes, there are some really sad elements, and depending on how they affect you, you will probably well up quite a lot. BUT, above all it is a love story and has a happy ending that is beautiful. Plus the story deals with some mental health issues, in case that is a trigger for you in books.**

REVIEW - Deeper by Allyn Lesley

Title - Deeper

Author - Allyn Lesley





Synopsis

Everything Avianna Linton thought she knew was shattered in one traffic stop. With her life turned upside down, she flees to the bright lights of New York City hoping for anonymity and a new life. 

Rising from nothing, Noah Adams holds onto his power and control with a bone-crushing grip. No one dared challenge his authority until her...

Avi’s disdain for Noah is barely contained, and Noah does everything he can to restrain himself—a concept he has little experience with.

There’s more between the two than either of them realize. A force looms near, hovering with deadly precision and motivated solely by revenge.

Avi wonders who her new friends truly are and if she’s already in too deep. Noah, accustomed to getting what he wants, will do whatever it takes to draw Avi in deeper.




What I Thought

Two hard headed people are forced to face off. Noah the "Long of New York and Avi, a school teacher meet. There is an attraction for Noah but Avi is having none of it, her protective armour is strong and she wears it whenever she is in proximity to him.
"I'm a paradox, like that flower. Very pretty flower, but also deadly."
Underneath the "i'm just a plain teacher" facade, Avi actually has had a scary life, she hides it well. Noah as also had a tough life, that all turned around when he was getting in trouble as a teenager and a police officer offered him an olive branch. No he's wealthy and reputable and he wants Avi.
"A woman with her arms up and eyes closed distracted Noah. Her body moved sensuously against a man he knew of as a poindexter. His quick scan revealed he wasn't the only one caught in the woman's web of seduction."
Avi stays strong and holds off as long as she can and along their way these two seem to build this chemistry. The back and forth banter is fun and kinda compelling to read. Turns out that even at the opposite ends of the spectrum they have quite a bit in common.

There is a lot going on in this book, but don't worry, no whiplash. It's well paced, well thought out and a good balance of romance, drama, suspense and calm. 
"That was her choice, choices are made every day. The consequences weren't always favourable, but one had to be man or woman enough to deal with whatever the outcome was."

REVIEW - Broken by Annie Jocoby

Title - Broken
Author - Annie Jocoby







Synopsis

Nick O'Hara is, for lack of a better word, a man-wh***. Look in the Urban Dictionary under that word, and his name will no doubt be mentioned. The only qualifications that he looks for in a bed-mate is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him. 

Until Scotty James. 

Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and homelessness. She has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she. 

When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him. 

Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust?




What I thought

Nick and Scotty are two opposite ends of the spectrum. Nick is one of life's winners, he's sleeping his way through half of New York, rolling in money and attitude that matches his lifestyle. Scotty is one of life's losers, a childhood victim who does not engage with men and lives hand to mouth. What happens when they meet?
"This continued as more and more people rushed in. In the back of my mind, I was really looking forward to seeing professor O'Hara again, and then shook my head. How for the teacher? Aren't you just a bit old for that? Actually I never liked that particular song, a better song would be 'Don't stand so close to me' I started singing the lyrics to this song softly to myself while I poured another drink, and then smiled."
Well thats frustrating, I like my alphas to be cool and heroic, dark and dirty, sexy without even trying, but this Nick is just a bit of a Dick. He did not appeal to me at all. His attitude stank. I could put aside his man whorish ways, but still. MEH! His reaction to Scotty's background is just the biggest turn off and me personally I'd have never spoken to him again if I was her. Plus He's her professional senior. Rules dude. Rules!

Scotty has had a rubbish life, a victim of childhood abuse she has continued being a victim all her life, fear holding her back from doing anything or being anyone. She just goes to college and exists. I found her selfish and annoying and she garnered no sympathy. I just wanted to yell at her, GROW UP AND GROW A PAIR!
"We always recognize each other. It has become part of my DNA, so I can almost always spot it in others"
This is, just my opinion and these two might be right up someone else's street and I hope they are because I didn't mind how it was written and I like the way the author thinks. This one just fell short for me. And there were one too many spelling and grammatical mistake to not say anything. Sorry.

Love is Louder


My Review:



This is the first book I read by Antoinette Candela and it won’t be the last. By looking at the cover you think it’s going to be about a love triangle. However it’s not. It’s more than that.  

Antoinette wrote a book to me that felt like real life characters. What she wrote about could happen in real life.  That’s why I liked it so much. I like reading a book that you can relate to, that it could happen in real life. Maybe not to you but to someone.    

I liked how each chapter was narrated by the different characters. It was different but it worked in this story.

The characters that you'll meet are:

Mason, a gorgeous caring man (who is one of my favorite characters in this story). 
Micah who is Mason’s brother. 
Dana is a friend of Mason’s.  
Meadow is Micah and Mason’s sister. 
Lily (another favorite character of mine) who is Micah and Mason’s niece.   
Brie (another favorite character of mine) who is married to James. James I would just like to hit. (He is not a favorite character but he is a main one in the story)  
Ava is a friend of Brie’s.  
Lisa works with James.

All the characters that I mentioned above work very well in this story. They all belong. I don't like to go into detail because I don't want to spoil it. If the blurb and what I'm typing out interests you to read it then go for it! 

To me Love is Louder ends in a cliffhanger so I can’t wait to find out what happens!
While reading Love is Louder, I smiled, wanted to reach inside my kindle to hit a few characters, and I also had a frown.  
To me all the emotions in this book made it realistic and there was never a dull, boring moment.

Some quotes/parts of the story I liked:

“I miss you every day, Do Re Mi,” I whisper with a smile on my face.

“You were a very stunning bride,” he says, his eyes softening as he gazes at me. “And your husband is one lucky man.”

“I just want to point out that I don't usually take service calls. My brother, Micah, who was supposed to take this call, got sick this morning from a rough weekend, so I had to make this run. I hope you're not disappointed.”

My favorite part of the story: 

“It was a birthday gift. A solid gold band engraved with a quote she made up. Love is Louder. That’s what she thought of the music we all played together and what she thought of her relationship with Micah and me. When Lily got older, I had planned to pass the ring down to her.”
