Lost in France (Firebird Trilogy #2)


Lost. The one thing I’ve wanted above everything else was taken from me in one night. My dreams were shattered forever because of one irreversible mistake.

There was nothing I could do about it.

I’d lost everything.

So I did what I always do. I ran.

To another continent.

To France.

To start over.

God knows, I needed a new beginning; a new job, a new life.

To find what I truly wanted…needed…craved.

A man of my own.

My French man found me. He was perfect.

Or…was he. Alain du Bois had a secret. One that could destroy us before we even had a chance to find love.

And why was my new boss, Maxwell Grant, the arrogant and demanding CEO of Grant Global, fixated on me?

Would I find myself in France?

Would I get what I desperately wanted?

Or was I jumping from one hotter than hell fire into another?

NO REGRETS COVERThis is the long awaited second book of The Firebird series and I for one, was very pleased to receive a copy to review one of my favourite author’s work. The story follows on from book one with Rebecca nursing a broken heart. Rebecca is an Australian who works for Maxwell Grant. She was working in France where she had a love affair with Frenchman Alain which ended abruptly. Now Rebecca is working in Germany, and seems to be on a self-destruct mission going from bar to bar drinking herself into oblivion. It is in one of these bars where she befriends barman, Kurt. Studying to become a doctor, there is a connection between them but not a romantic one.

Maxwell is an astute businessman. Even though he wants Rebecca, he has his own set of complications which does not bode well with her. However, she has an attraction towards him. Max summons her to New York for a charity event. She stays at his house where he makes it clear how much he wants to be with her. But Rebecca is in a dilemma! Why she is reluctant is something that I cannot reveal in the review since it would give away what we have learned about Max in Lost In France. Rebecca does what she does best and runs straight backs to Germany. She also hands in her notice as she cannot work for Max with this constant attraction and his baggage. She feels it is an impossible situation and the only way to resist the temptation is to get as far away as possible.

Alain is still in France, still wants to Rebecca, but something of utmost importance has been brought to his attention by his father. If he had known this before, a heart-breaking split-up could have been avoided. So with this in mind, he decides to go to Germany to claim the only woman he has ever really loved. Rebecca is the object of two men wanting her at the same time and makes life very difficult. Max stays away from her so he can resolve his personal issues, and in the meantime, Rebecca is happy to find out that her baby sister, Lily, is coming to Germany to celebrate Rebecca’s impending 30th birthday.

We are introduced to some new characters I’d eventually like to see side stories of. Lily, Rebecca’s baby sister, and her other younger sister, the flighty Chloe who certainly intrigued me. Not forgetting the handsome German Dr Kurt.

There a lot of twists and turns in this brilliant book which obviously I’m not going to spoil for you. It involves love lost, love found, and a tragically violent event that shapes the story. Rebecca’s world is spinning out of control, only making me more than impatient to read the next instalment. I have no idea what will happen, or if this incredible story will end how I would like it to. I do know as a reviewer, I have to be impartial; as a reader I confess that my loyalty lies with Max. Very well done Jani! You have offered your readers a really enjoyable read.

81-bTzP97uL._SL1500_Wow! Let me start by saying I have read all books from this author, and was excited when I was asked to review this book as I adore all her books. When I finish her books, I am always more than satisfied with where her stories have taken me and their endings.

This is the third book in the series. Even though I loved the first two books, this is without a doubt, my favourite one. Anguish is the type of novel that you can re-read and you’ll never get tired of reading it. This novel had me laughing out loud with some of the situations the characters find themselves in, and I have to say that I loved all characters in this book; not just the main ones.

The prologue starts us off with Jaylah in a complicated situation that she can’t get out of, and all because of her ex. Jaylah! Oh my, what a strong, sassy woman and very loving, too. She applies for a job she thinks will get her out of her the state of affairs she’s in, only to find herself worse off than ever. She knows nothing about her looking after a baby, can hardly get her act together, so how can she possibly make this work? And to top the lot, her self-confidence isn’t high up on the scale when she meets her new boss either.

Mack. A brown-eyed, moody bad boy biker who is struggling with life, has the shock of his life when a woman turns up at his door and hands him her sister’s baby and informs him that he is the father. She ups and leaves him with the baby he wants nothing to do with, so he hands over the baby to Jaylah.

Throughout this novel you see family stick together throughout. However, there is more than the baby; event after event occurs. The sexual tension which builds up between boss and his employee, is nothing less than outstanding. You will smile, laugh out loud, and if you are like me, you will say, “Go girl, go!” Jaylah’s inner-strength won’t back down to this bad-humoured and pushy man who you can’t help but fall in love with. You’ll also wish you could take away his pain. Can they overcome everything that life is throwing at them, or is it time for Jaylah to work somewhere else with her heart in pieces?

I can’t wait for the next book in this series and to meet all new and old characters again. I rate this book five stars and look forward to reading more from this author.

The worst part, he’s a biker.

Their sexual tension is huge, but he’s a hard nut to crack. She’ll get in, though. She makes it her mission to break through the wall Mack has built so high around himself.

Her world is about to spiral out of control, and she’s taking Mack along for the ride.

“You stole my fuckin’ drugs.”

The foot at my throat presses me further into the cold, scratchy pavement. I gasp, my fingers clawing at fleshy ankles. His skin doesn’t budge; my nails are too short to break the flesh that I’m so desperately scraping at. It does nothing to move him, or send him on his way. Instead, he pushes harder, cutting off more of my air supply.

“That’s not exactly how it went down,” I croak, struggling.

“You were meant to deliver them; instead you fuckin’ sold them, and ran with the money.”

He’s right about that. I did take the drugs and sell them. I had good reason—my boyfriend was in trouble, and I was doing anything I could to get him out of trouble. I didn’t think ahead. I didn’t realize that I’d then owe a very unhappy drug dealer money. Not my finest moment, that’s for damned sure.

“I had no choice . . . I was helping someone I care about.”

He presses his boot down further into my throat, and my air supply narrows down to a dangerous level. My head pounds as the blood and oxygen are cut from my brain.

“I bet that person ain’t here helpin’ you tonight, now, are they?”

No, he’s right about that. Samuel is probably sleeping with someone else. The moment his debt was cleared, he left me. The dirty, cheap fucker left me. Now I’m dealing with the backlash. A furious drug dealer who wants his money.

Money I don’t have.

“Don’t I get,” I gasp, “one chance to get your money?”

He glares down at me through angry grey eyes. I squirm again as my vision starts flittering in and out. Shit, I’m going to pass out and he’s probably going to kill me, or worse, drag my helpless body away to do God knows what with.

“I have m-m-m-money,” I croak.

“If you had money, you wouldn’t have stolen my drugs.”

“I . . .” God, I’m on the edge. “I can get it. I s-s-s-swear.”

He stares at me, and for each second he does, my vision swims. Then, much to my relief, he lifts his boot off and reaches down, hurling my weak body up. He pulls me close, so close that our noses touch. My knees wobble and I have to push all my focus into not falling flat on my face and giving him another chance to take me.

“Listen, and listen fuckin’ good. You’ve got two weeks, and trust me, that’s me bein’ fuckin’ generous. Get my money, or I come for you.”


I nod.

“Don’t try and run. You do, I’ll fuckin’ find you.”

I close my eyes, take a deep, burning breath and nod again.

“Two weeks.”

Then he’s gone.

And I know . . . I just know . . . I’m in deep, deep shit.

MADE: A Sempre Novel by J.M. Darhower



Corrado Moretti.
The world knows the notorious Kevlar Killer, but few have ever seen what lies beneath his armor. The abused child. The neglected teenager. The broken man. He always did whatever he had to do in order to survive.

It’s kill or be killed.

Throughout his life, he has been there in the shadows, a witness to everything from beginning to end. Bound by loyalty and honor, there’s only one thing he would sacrifice it all for: family.

Never get close. Never get attached. It’s a lesson that has been brutally pounded into him since childhood, but they’re words the DeMarcos make it difficult for him to follow. Through them he finds love and grieves loss, realizing the world isn’t quite as black and white as it’s made out to be.


Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.


MADE COVERoMADE! This word takes on a new meaning in this angst-ridden story overflowing with hate and revenge. And above all, total obedience to the boss, Antonio DeMarco who runs La Cosa Nostra in Chicago, is never questioned. However, this is not his story; it is Corrado Moretti’s. Saying that, every minute detail regarding the author’s extremely well-developed characters has a justification in a strong storyline interwoven with fear. I felt this fear from the first chapter of a read which is so well structured and fast flowing, only to leave me utterly spent right up until the last word.

Corrado never had a chance to have a normal childhood. Circumstances mould his personality, make him grow up quickly. His father, Vito, is far too busy making a name for himself in the hierarchy of the Mafia. His mother, Erika, not only abuses him, she deliberately takes away the only anchor he had. Katrina, his twin sister, feeding on her mother’s hate, does everything in her power to make her brother’s life more intolerable.

“The more she hates you, the more she likes me!”

Corrado learns quickly. To be seen but not heard, to obey and to honour his father, and more importantly, never to question becomes his motto. When problems arise in the ‘business’, these two young siblings are sent away for the summer. Reprieve from the chaos at home show Corrado how the other half live. He meets Celia and Vincent. Two normal kids who are loved unconditionally.

“I like you, Corrado.” Those words surprised him. “I thought I was weird.” “You are,” she said. “But I still like you.”

Vito has ideas for his son. It’s irrelevant whether he is still of school age, he wants him by his side; show him the ropes in Las Vegas—slowly. Corrado is eager to demonstrate to Vito that he is a Moretti. Being sucked up into the world of violence and blackmail makes him grow older and wiser beyond his years. More than aware that once he’s in, means there’s no turning back. He does what is expected of him and does it well. Furthermore, he has no inkling that someone had been keeping an eye on his progress. That person will have a huge influence on his life.

“We all got someone we answer to.” “Who does he answer to?” “I don’t know, kid. God, maybe?”

Against all odds, the father of the woman he has loved since his capability of comprehension, gives him his blessing. His unconditional love for Celia is so strong, so utterly innocent in his world of corruption, helps him to keep sane. I fell in love with her with her generosity. She tries hard not to pressurize him, has the patience of a saint; gives him a reason to live.

“I didn’t want her to soften you. I didn’t want her to tame that beast. Because that beast? I need him a hell of a lot more than she needs the rest of you.”

I am a huge fan of the God Father by Mario Puzo. Even though MADE is about the Mafia, this book is on completely different lines. At not one instance did I doubt the comparable quality. The word epic is an understatement and certainly worthy of a movie. Such explicitly descriptive scenes come alive, and to say that they distressed me is putting it mildly. This book’s characters overwhelmed, drew me into their lives, and the man I should have hated, I adored, suffered and literally sobbed my heart out for. Calculatingly cold and seemly distant from everything that revolves around him, made me ask myself over and over again whether this man would able to he conquer his nemesis. My heart went out for his wife, her brother, for all his loved ones.

I am writing this review with tears streaming down my face. Corrado’s story didn’t weevil its way under my skin. It touched my medulla. Ms. Darhower, you are a storyteller par excellence. Bravo!
