Author: Chantal Fernando

Release Date: 28th June, 2016

 

 

 

 

In New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando’s latest novel in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series, Rake—baddest of the bad boys—gets his own romance at last!

Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.

Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled…and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.

Five Stars

I was over the moon when given the opportunity to review this book. This is the fourth in the series and they just get better and better.

Chantal has written a story where emotions play a big part. I found myself gripping my Kindle at some points and then the tears started to flow. As I got into this read, I had the pleasure of meeting up with great characters from previous books, and meeting a few new ones was when the laughter started. From the beginning, we see a young Rake and Bailey in love and talking about their future which intrigued me. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen between these two and I wasn’t in the slightest bit disappointed.

Growing up, Adam aka Rake had no one except his sister and his girl. But after being broken hearted, he joined the Wind Dragons MC where he changed into our bad boy biker. He loves women; in fact, I would go as far as saying he is the worst one in the whole club. Out having fun with his buddies and sister, he finds her talking to the one woman he hates with a passion, the one he still loves with everything he has. Hmm… indeed a fine line, I thought to myself. Their eyes lock, old feelings overpower him and oh boy, did he make a good fist of telling her what she could do. It’s as if he’s haunted by her since he keeps seeing reminders at every corner. By putting two and two together, his anger is intensified by what looks like even more betrayal.

I really connected to Bailey. This young, single mom who has no other family, has a job she loves and always wanted. Out on the town, she bumps into two besties from her childhood, one being the sister of the man she loved. Seeing Rake again brings back many hurtful memories. He has no idea that Bailey is hiding something from him. Regardless of everything they’ve been through or how they feel, she had to do this to protect Rake from the truth. Finally, when I thought I couldn’t take anymore and was shouting at her to just get on with it and tell him, she does what she did literally shattering my heart. One problem; I thought things couldn’t get worse for them. How very wrong I was!

Secrets are revealed, actions and loyalties are put to the test. Will they be able to move forward? Can the past be buried and all be forgiven? You’ll have to read it to find out. I can assure you that you won’t be let down as this book has everything and more besides. Most definitely a five star read Ms Fernando and anxiously waiting for the next read.

Down and Out is the third novel in the Caroline Springs Charter series and I can only say that I loved it as much as the other two books.

OMG, talk about emotions running high because they most certainly did just that! From the very start, my heart broke but it was slowly put back together again. I was so pleased to see the other characters we all know and love and the fact that the big statement throughout the book was no matter what happens, you’re not alone; that family sticks together in good and bad times and everyone pulls together was for me, an important factor.

Kalen, aka Dive, a biker who certainly knows what he wants, does everything in his power to get it. However, his love life hasn’t worked out exactly how he’d wished and he finds himself alone, in a lot of pain and his hands are full of extra responsibilities he wasn’t counting on. My big-hearted biker; yes, he’s mine but struggling to come to terms with the lies that were kept hidden. He decides to leave town for a while and goes to stay with his mom.

“It hurts Mum. It fucking kills me.”
“I know my baby boy. I know, and that pain will last a long time. But you need to go with it, don’t bottle that up and let it fester. Let it out Kalen.”

Wow, did this quirky woman make me laugh with her fantastic traits and how well she pulls her baby boy out of his head. Anyway, several months later he makes a wise decision. Moving forward under the circumstances he finds himself in wasn’t as easy as he thought it would be since a whole lot of problems arise. One of them being a young woman who enters into his life bringing with her more emotion than he can handle, doesn’t need or even want.

Mena is very alone in the world and due to her past, is living out of her car. She sees a job ad, applies for it and is employed by Dive as he feels she’s capable of doing it well. Happiness, to have a nice home and to be financially comfortable is her only wish. Yet never in a million years did she know what she was letting herself in for. My heart went out for her. Even though she’s being treated appallingly, she can’t leave the job she desperately needs. At one point, I wanted to shout… come on girl, stand up for yourself! The attraction and friendship grows but neither are acting on it. And after over hearing something no woman wants to hear, she realizes she is truly alone and she runs.

“Mr Brooks, please don’t. It’s better this way anyway—”

I cried, I laughed and I got mad. It’s also one of those series you can reread over and over and never get bored. I know I didn’t. Well done Lila. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series. This beautifully written, all encompassing and emotionally charged read fully deserves my five star rating.

Kindle Friends Forever 5 ★ review by Claire Rose

(This novel does come with a warning about some of the issues that are covered so please take note.)

I’ve read all this author works, but this one was an absolute joy to read. I loved it! If you are looking for a story that has emotions running high, has you laughing from start to finish and makes you fall in love with the characters, then this is the book for you.

Hetch is the first book in the Men of Swat Series and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The cover alone had me more than intrigued. From about chapter two, I was laughing out loud so vigorously that it got to the point tears of joy were running down my face. But then those tears turned into heart-breaking soul wrenching ones. To say our leading man has a past is an understatement. His issue is what no person should go through, and to see a strong alpha man struggle with his emotions while trying to carry on with life was very eye opening for me. This made me realise there are people out there who are suffering from these events and need support and just love. I wanted to wrap my arms around my Kindle and hold on tight. My emotions took a big hit with to such an extreme that I wasn’t even sure I was going to survive to the end.

Hetch has a very strong character and I couldn’t help but adore him to pieces! He’s existing in life and saving lives is what he does; hence why he wears the badge. With a promotion up for grabs he goes all out to get it. Only there is a slight issue, he has to go through a psych evaluation to see how he is coping with everything.

“I use sex, beer, and my job.”

Thinking he’s failed, he goes home where he meets a woman who brings out everything in him. In turn making him confused, he tries to it keep his feelings together.

Liberty is a woman full of sass who also knows what she wants. When she meets her neighbour, she stays well away from him for reasons to be divulged. However, an indisputable connection there is. After an event that has Liberty in danger, she gives up and decides to give a relationship a go with him.

“I missed you.”
“You did?”
“Specially missed this. Missed seeing you come to life.”

Only while Hetch is on a job, things start to deteriorate as she tries to hold on with everything she has got.

I could write so much more but since I don’t want to give too much away, I’ll leave it here and let you make up your own minds about this incredibly well-developed read. What I will say is the story in itself shows loyalty, compassion and a true sense of family. This gave me exactly what I needed, too. All the characters who have big roles to play are beautifully described adding a profound depth. I have no doubt whatsoever that I’ll be rereading time and time again. Not one minute did I ever get bored; therefore my rating is five stars. Well done, Ms Savage. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

 

Excerpt

They say moments of clarity hit you hard. Like suddenly a deep understanding smacks you in the face. Your vision becomes unclouded, and a truth that’s been out of your reach rushes at you. It’s in that second your perception of reality becomes so clear you can’t begin to describe it.

Some call it beautiful, some say it can be saddening, some even compare it to the moment your drug of choice washes over you, offering a moment of escape.

I wish I could I say my moment of clarity is an epiphany or some kind of life-defining moment that showed me where my messed-up life is going.

No, my moment hits me as the first wave of the orgasm I’ve been chasing the last few minutes washes over me.

“Fuck, woman, wait for me this time.” His voice pulls me from my haze first, reminding me how messed up I am.

Heat covers my body, not from the life-altering orgasm, but from embarrassment.

Without thinking rationally, I throw my vibrator to the floor and freeze, afraid to move, as a low moan pauses on my lips. The thump of my beating heart, almost syncing in perfect rhythm to the throb drumming between my legs.

Jesus, please tell me he didn’t hear me.

“Don’t go shy on me now, babe.” He half chuckles, half growls, and even though there is a wall between us, the words wash over me; Goose bumps prickle my skin as if his warm breath whispered over me.

Shit.

Shit.

Shit.

Slowly, as if by some freak of nature, apartment nine can see me through the wall, I roll off the bed and find myself on all fours.

Really, Liberty?

Fully committed to my actions, I slowly army crawl my way to the nearest exit.

A strong tap on the wall halts my escape followed by, “You still there?” Another wave of humiliation crashes over me when I take stock of my predicament.

If I don’t get out of here fast, I’ll be drowning in so much embarrassment, nothing will resuscitate me.

Unable to form a coherent thought, and not willing to engage with the pervert, I continue to low crawl my way out of my bedroom and into my bathroom. Closing the door, I stand, and quickly walk to the shower. After turning the faucet on, I strip the rest of my clothes off, then step under the spray of the water.

Jesus, that was close.

I have no idea what I was thinking. In fact, I know I wasn’t. Which scares me even more.

I, Liberty Jenson, would never take risks like this. If asked what prompted this change in me, I’d answer with two things.

Apartment nine.

And a self-appointed sex sabbatical.

It all started when I moved into my new apartment. At first, I was excited, ready for a fresh start. After a messy break-up, which included dealing with a douche ex who didn’t know how to keep his dick in his pants, I needed a new place. Somewhere closer to town this time, secure, and most importantly, affordable. However, finding a place close to the city, which was secure enough to make me feel safe and would still leave me enough money left over from my program director’s wage, proved to be a feat. After searching for five weeks, I was about to give up, accept defeat and move in with my mom and dad again. I mean it wasn’t the worst thing that could happen to a single thirty-year-old woman.

Right?

Luckily for me, I didn’t have to resort to such desperate measures when this place came up two weeks ago. After a quick walk through, I fell in love with the two bedrooms, one bath, and open kitchen living area. I filled out the paperwork, paid my deposit, a month’s rent in advance, and moved in five days later.

Everything seemed perfect.

That was until I realized how paper-thin the walls were between apartments.

It started out subtle, a sneeze in the early evening on my first night here as I settled into bed. A soft murmur of a man’s voice the third night.

But then came the sex.

The hot, wild, filthy sex.

The fourth night in my new apartment, I was woken to the low moans of what I assumed to be a needy woman.

My face heats up remembering the screams, the grunts. The deep baritone of apartment nine’s voice as he told the ‘bitch’ to keep it quiet.

Unsure what to do, I laid silent, listening to my new neighbor fuck some lucky woman into submission.

I’m not going to lie; I wasn’t turned on by it. I was set alight.

I never thought I would be that kind of person, the kind who got off from listening in on someone get off, but something in the way he spoke to her, something in the way he spoke to all the other women since, stirred a new want in me. Soon I found myself seeking out my room for a chance to hear him.

It was wrong.

So wrong.

But it didn’t stop me from wanting it.

The screams.

The deep grunts of pleasure.

I wanted it all.

I wanted it to be me.

“I’m officially going to hell.” I groan under the water, trying to wash the stupidity off me. Stupid would be the nice way of calling me a fucking idiot. And an idiot is what I am. Especially after tonight.

Meet Havoc…

I was happy doing my own thing.

No connections.

No demands.

No problems.

Just me, my club and a whole lot of dirty work to take care of.

She never wanted a biker.

She wanted stability and I gave up on that years ago.

We tried to fight it.

Neither of us wanted it.

But she calms my fury and I show her a man who accepts every part of her.

Now we’re trying to figure out how to be together.

Because when the need for each other is this strong, to deny it will only cause complete havoc.

Rated Five Loving Stars

 

There is not one I thing I don’t love about Nina’s books. All pure alpha biker men, this one is no exception and became my favourite biker read. Even though this novel is a standalone, the events take place after book four in this series.

I have to say while reading this that I did think that it would be another dark and dangerous man who meets another woman with her walls up…with a past. Well, I was totally wrong! Both have baggage but it’s mainly to do with our sexy biker. There were times my heart was breaking for this poor man, then I wanted to slap a certain person for doing what they did. I can certainly understand why he chose to lead the life he now does. I’d be lying if I said my emotions weren’t involved in this novel because there were. I laughed, I got angry, my eyes had tears, my heart was pounding. I even found myself saying, oh no, please don’t go back there. However, I sighed with relief at the end.

Havoc is a dirty mouthed, closed off biker who has a dark and violent side to him. He has become a nomad for his MC club after events tore him apart. He now lives for the open road and won’t open his heart up or let anyone get close to him. He still helps out at the club and does the stuff no-one else can and believe me, he’s more than capable of doing it. So my man meets a young woman at a bar. Despite the fact that she’s like no other, he still refuses to open up believing one night will be enough. Yet we all know one night is never enough for our bikers! Family problems and his club wanting him to stay doesn’t distract him from getting her out of his head.

I loved Carla’s strong-will and the way she says it as she sees it; nevertheless, I worried about her approach to solving a personal problem. Dulling the pain, she starts knocking back the shots. She’s also the sister of a club brother which is only going to complicate matters more. After one night with Havoc, she can’t seem to get him out of her head, either. Carla sees that there is a dangerous side to him and agrees to a relationship of sorts without feelings and emotions being involved. But as we all well know, it never works out that way. Carla’s brother finds out about the two and isn’t happy about it. He warns her, no… he tells her to end it as Havoc is a no good man. Her life is taking a downfall and she doesn’t know what she’s doing. So when Havoc asks her to go with him, she excepts on a few conditions which he has no option but to conform to.

Do they encounter troubles and problems? Yes! Does he realise he is not on his own, that he does have family? Can Havoc open his heart? Many unanswered questions that will only be revealed by reading this fabulous book which I highly recommend.

“Why won’t you let me in?”
“Why the fuck do you want in?”

I rate this book five loving stars. Well done Nina, I can’t wait for more from you.

 


Havoc Teaser 2


Excerpt

As I stepped through the bathroom doorway however, I found her. She was in the bath, plugged into her music with her eyes closed and her head resting on the edge of the bath.

I stopped and leaned against the wall with my arms folded across my chest. Watching her, my gaze travelled the length of her body. In the short time I’d known her, my appreciation of her body had grown. Where small tits hadn’t turned me on a month ago, I couldn’t get enough of hers.

Never letting me down, my dick grew hard while I took in her beauty.

“Fuck,” I muttered under my breath as I contemplated the wisdom of fucking her again.

I wanted to.

Hell, I fucking needed to.

She’s a brother’s sister for fuck’s sake.

I’d spent the last few hours going over and over that fact in my mind. My decision had been to head back to the motel, sleep on the couch and never taste her pussy again.

I hadn’t factored in having her naked body on display the minute I returned.

Shit.

“How long are you going to stand there staring at me?” she asked as she cracked an eye open to look at me.

“Until you get out and let me fuck you.” Both her eyes had opened and I pinned my gaze to hers, not letting her go.

Her eyebrows lifted. “I thought you were done with me.”

“Turns out I’m not.”

She stood and reached for her towel before stepping out. Continuing to hold my gaze, she slowly dried herself off.

Teasing the fuck out of my dick.

I fought the desire to reach out and rip the towel from her hands. My carefully constructed self-control was being tested and I knew it wouldn’t be long until I caved and took what I wanted.

Finally – finally – she finished drying off and closed the distance between us. “What if I’m done with you?” I knew she was full of shit by the breathless tone she used and the way her body leaned just that little bit too close to mine. It was like she was trying to hold herself back, but her body had a mind of its own and couldn’t stay away.

I lifted a brow. “Are you?”

“I should be. After the way you’ve been treating me, I really should be.” Still all breathy.

Still in this with me.

I unfolded my arms so I could curl my hand around her neck. Gripping her there, I said, “Yeah, you should be, but you’re not.”

I feel the same way.

With our faces so close that her breaths whispered across my skin, we stared at each other for a long time. The still air in the tiny bathroom consumed our apprehension piece by piece until all that was left was an unrelenting need to satisfy our hunger.

At the first sign of her softening, I tightened my hold on her neck and pulled her mouth to mine. She didn’t hesitate and a second later our bodies pressed together as hard as our mouths did.

The smell of her arousal overwhelmed me and I let her neck go so I could slide my hands around her ass and lift her. Turning, I held her up against the wall and groaned as she wrapped her legs around me. The urge to drive my cock as hard and fast as I could into her sweet cunt threatened to take over as the only thought in my mind, and I took a moment to work through that and get myself under control.

Resting my forehead against hers, I focused on my breathing while I gave myself a talking to.

Focus.

You’ve got this.

You’ve fucking done this enough times to know how to control yourself.

But I hadn’t.

I’d never fucked a woman like Carla.

Had never been with a woman who stole my control the way she did.

She invaded every fucking sense of mine until I didn’t know right from wrong, up from down, red from fucking blue.

“Havoc.”

My head snapped up and I found her staring at me.

Unsure.

“Are you okay?” she asked, lines creasing her forehead as she tilted her head, frowning at me.

I stepped back and let her go. “I need to slow this shit down.”

She stood naked in front of me with an expression on her face that seemed to be half confusion and half frustration. “What does that mean?”

I wasn’t sure I even knew.

“It means I want you sitting cross legged in the middle of the bed waiting for me while I take a minute,” I bit out. My head was so damn full I thought it might actually explode.

Too many thoughts.

Too many fucking feelings.

I jerked my chin at her and snapped, “Go.”

Her eyes widened a fraction and I pushed my breaths out while waiting for her to submit. When she didn’t, I growled, “Carla, I need you to go and sit on the bed. Now.”

“I’m giving you five minutes to get your head back in this. I’m all for bossy and shit, but I draw a line at whatever the fuck you call what you’ve got going on at the moment. Barking orders at me is a whole lot fucking different than dominating me.” With that, she stalked out of the bathroom.

Thank fuck.

IRON & BONE SYNOPSIS

 

A knife that cut too deep,

a slash that still burns,

failures piled high and flammable.

I held my losses at bay with knives, with guns, my hands,

my bike, my brothers,

my iron will.

But not my heart.

No, my heart was the flame

that would light the match,

ignite the blaze.

I am the enforcer

The killer when called upon,

the ruthless hound on demand,

the one who cleans the mess left behind.

The protector.

I can make you bleed,

Smash you to pieces.

But she smashed all my excuses,

and I shattered hers.

For a split second she was mine,

but I will always be hers.

Some things,

really beautiful things,

you can’t hold onto forever.

Kindle Friends Forever 5 ★ Review

by Claire Rose

Warning! I’m not saying too much about this novel as I feel it’s one you need to experience yourself. There is so much happening and many crucial details I don’t want you to miss out on, so why not just one click because I’m absolutely sure you won’t be disappointed! I most certainly wasn’t.

I was asked by a good friend of mine who I love dearly if I would like to review this book as she has read this author’s work before and highly recommend it. I agreed without blinking an eyelid as I adore MC / romance novels. And wow, this read was beyond my expectations! What I will say is even though this can be read as standalone, my personal opinion would be to read the first two books in this series before as they give more of a background on some of the secondary characters.

I fell for Jill. She’s a thirty-two year old single parent starting out anew in a town where she’s been hired to look after her ex’s mom who has MS. She also decided to help a friend out as past events made her feel guilty and it was her way of making things right. While helping out Grace and Lock and doing her job; very well at that, we see her slowly fall for Lock’s best friend Boner. Boy oh boy… it starts to get hot and steamy between these two but he keeps pushing her away. Until one evening her ex rolls back into town and he’s not happy about this at all.

I truly adored Boner. He comes across as hard, cold and a man of few words. Underneath there is a man do be discovered and I enjoyed every minute getting to know him. Not to mention he’s so damn hot! He is one of the older bikers and is the Jack’s muscle man, the enforcer for the club. He realises that he failed his friend, Grace, and he’s going to protect her friend, Jill, come hell or high water. In spite of the fact that strong feelings are forming, he still can’t let himself be truly happy since past events are holding him back. Now here is where the fun begins! When he receives new information and someone from the past comes back to haunt him, he refuses to give the one good light in his life Jill, more heartache. And things are about to take a turn for the worse. Can he escape from a disastrous situation he’s in? Will to they be able to get their happy ending? You’ll only find out by reading it.

The writing style of this author is something else! In my opinion, it takes a very skilful author to write a male POV, especially an alpha MC one. Ms Porter manages to bring Boner’s caring and sensitive side alive onto the pages of this book without him coming over as soft which we all no is not part of an MC members character.

After reading this book, I realised that my friend was right. I could not find fault in this read which is edited to perfection and flows faster than fast with moments of true angst. Nevertheless, I also laughed, cried and even shouted a few times in parts. Nooooo… totally untrue! To show you how affected I was, my knuckles turned white while holding tightly onto my kindle. I loved it from the very first page right up to the very last one. Even the secondary characters were beautifully developed. It has to be one of my ten top best books for 2015. For this reason, I award Iron & Bone five fantastic stars. Going to one click the first two books in this series now. Well done to the author; you should be proud.

SYNOPSIS

Betrayal. Destruction. Loss.


The Storm MC is a club in crisis and their new President, Scott Cole, has declared war on their enemy. As Scott takes command, the MC is thrust into the biggest battle in their history – a battle to not only save the club, but the lives of its members.

Harlow James stands behind her man as he takes charge. She’s determined to prove she can be the woman he needs. However, somewhere along the way, she’s lost a piece of herself, and she fights to be strong for him when she feels anything but strong.

As the club descends into chaos, Scott and Harlow are pulled in opposite directions while they try to protect everything that is important to them. Their relationship is tested in ways it never has been, but they cling to the faith they have in each other.

Is faith enough to get you through when all appears to be lost? For Scott and Harlow, it may be the only thing that, in the end, will save them and the club.

 KINDLE FRIENDS FOREVER  5    REVIEW by CLAIRE ROSE

 

Let me start by saying Nina has written a outstandingly emotional and troubled story for Scott and Harlow. Even though this is the seventh book in the Storm Series, it’s Harlow and Scott’s second book and I do suggest you read the series from the beginning.

I must admit this review has been a hard one to write. From personal experience, I know exactly what Harlow was going through. Reading this story had me in tears, my emotions were all over the place and brought back memories that had my stomach twisted in knots. But like every woman and man that go through it with the love of family and friends around them, I got through it, too.

After the devastation of losing a baby, our leading lady is in a dark place and has pushed everyone away including our man Scott. She just can’t seem to find the person she once was. Nevertheless, Scott hasn’t given up on her and at Christmas, manages to get her to see the light and get some professional help. Now then… she might be getting what she needs but why, I asked myself, did she not fully include our man and still struggle from one day to the next. Going back to her artwork seemed to be her therapy and slowly we see the fun loving Harlow come back. Only there is problem that no one senses and as I’m not one to let on, you’ll just have to read the book to find out how events complicate everyone’s lives.

What can I say about our strong alpha male Scott, prez of the MC? I want one! He loves Harlow something fierce and stands by her one hundred percent. He has a lot on his shoulders; Harlow, the club and his family is making his temper wear thin. Things are getting out of hand in the club and trouble is knocking on his door. With the light slowly coming back in his woman’s eyes, can he keep her safe as danger arises? Not everyone is out of harm’s way either. Can they get to their HEA or is this the end for Scott and his club? Here is one of my favourite quotes in this book and it’s from Scott to Harlow.

Quoting with tongue in cheek! “I know I’m a hard-ass, and I probably don’t say shit very well, but I need you to know that the only thing I want is for you to get back to being you. I don’t want you to worry about me or looking after me by cooking and shit; that’s not important at the moment. Let me do all the worrying for the moment; let me help get you through this.”

Not only did this novel have me sobbing my heart out, but it also had me laughing out loud at the new characters I meet. Most of all, the author for me nailed this story with how she wrote the storyline for this novel. Therefore I award it five outstanding stars and congratulate Nina with a job well done. Keep up the good work Nina.

Sexy Snippet

I ran my hand over her ass and up her back. When I found her hair, I took hold and pulled her head back so I could dip my mouth to her neck. Fuck she smells good. I kissed her and as she moaned again, I added my teeth to the kiss, and fuck if she didn’t arch her back and press her front to me harder.

Pulling away, I rasped, “Jesus, woman, I need to get you out of here, otherwise your ass is gonna be planted on that couch and my dick is gonna be buried so far deep in you before you can stop me.”

Her mouth turned up in a grin, but she didn’t say anything.

“What?” I demanded.

“There is no way Scott Cole is going to fuck his woman in front of his club, but I love your enthusiasm. Personally, I think these guys are so involved in their drinking that we could probably have sex on that couch and none of them would even notice.”

I raised my brows. “You wanna see just where Scott Cole would fuck his woman? ‘Cause I’m happy to show you.”

Her grin grew. “I dare you, baby.”

Fuck.She knows me too fucking well and she’s fucking playing me.

I kept my gaze trained on her while I pulled out my phone and called Griff. When he answered, I said, “You guys right if I head home for the night?”

“Yeah, brother. We’ve got it under control. Church is scheduled for ten in the morning and then we’ve got the re-opening of Trilogy tomorrow night.”

My gaze dropped to Harlow’s lips as she licked them, and my dick begged for that tongue. I raised my finger to her lips and closed her mouth, holding my finger there as I replied, “See you in the morning.”

Shoving my phone in my pocket, I growled, “I want you outside. Now.”

Her grin disappeared and gave way to a sexy curl of her lips. Without another word, she turned and began walking outside. My eyes dropped to her ass. The way it swayed under the tight fit of her short, black dress almost made me come in my pants.

That dress is fucking perfect.

I followed her outside and as we walked past the corner of the building, I snagged her around the waist, lifted her to rest against my body and carried her around the corner. I then deposited her on the ground and pushed her up against the building. My hands went to the hem of her dress and I pulled it up to reveal her panties to me. I slid one hand inside to find her pussy while my other hand moved to take hold of her chin.

My eyes found hers and I demanded, “You good if I fuck my woman now?”

SYNOPSIS

 

Chelsea spent most of her life running.

She was young when her parents were killed, and she was thrown into the system as just another statistic. One foster home after another, hell after hell. When things got too hard, her first instinct was to get out and fast.

She didn’t mind being a club girl. Who wouldn’t want a group of possessive alpha males on your side and in your bed? The freedom and the lifestyle allowed her to spread her wings while the rules and bylaws kept everyone in line. It was comfortable – safe.

But while her head told her she was happy, her heart reminded her constantly of what she really wanted – Brothers by Blood President, Optimus. He was a brooding asshole who was sexy, loyal and pushed the boundaries of both her body and her mind. He never let her all the way in, but she still couldn’t stay away from him – he was addictive.

Optimus had only one rule – family comes first.

He knew that sometimes sacrifices needed to be made in order to keep the ones he loved safe. He’d done it before and he would do it again.

Being President of the Brothers by Blood MC meant he couldn’t show any weakness. His feelings for Chelsea were off the charts, but so far he’d managed to hide them and keep her at an arm’s length thinking he was protecting her. Beautiful, athletic and sassy, she wasn’t just another club girl, she was HIS girl.

Danger is fast approaching and Chelsea is in its direct sight. Will it be too late for Optimus to show Chelsea how he really feels? And when secrets are revealed will Chelsea stay and stand beside the man she wants or will the urge to run just be too strong?

 

Review by Claire Rose on behalf of KFF

Claire has award this read  5 sublime stars 

 

First and foremost, you need to one click this absolutely fantastic book. Twists, turns and secrets brought tears to my eyes rooting for the alpha men and a very special heroine. I do hope my review does this novel justice as I was literally blown away by this story told in present tense with the protagonists’ points of view. Even though this can be read as a standalone, I really do suggest reading book one first as you will get more of an idea of the story and its characters.

Wow — just wow! I LOVED IT. I have reviewed quite a few MC books, but this is on a whole new level. Looking at the gals’ we love to hate perspective for messing with our bikers has in fact, made me understand why they become club girls. Not everyone of them expects to become an ol’ lady or have their HEA.

Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea! What a strong and beautiful character. After her mother and father were murdered, she was thrown into the foster care system and had a rough time growing up. Then she found her way into the MC life as a club girl with no expectations. All the club wanted to do was protect her, put her through college and give her the family she had never had. Chelsea is the one for the prez. Everyone inside the club knows how they feel about each other, yet he won’t claim her. He is trying to protect her as her life is in danger in a big way. She has a flashback in time. She knows what she must do. Run!

Optimus is the club’s president and just how I like my MC men! Strong and one-hundred percent alpha; however, he’s riddled with guilt from his past which will soon to be revealed. He has strong feelings for one of the club girls, Chelsea. In spite of the fact that he keeps pushing her away, he won’t let anyone else near her. He’s also hiding a secret from her and only time will tell before she finds out. The club’s trying to figure out why and by whom her life has been put in peril, and therefore he reaches a harsh decision. I quite agreed with the club’s stance regarding Optimus’ wrongdoing and I got so damn mad with him. Screaming out loud at my Kindle didn’t help matters, either. I found all the pulling and pushing, him blowing hot and cold, totally exhausting. So much so that I could have jumped into the book and slapped the f***er!

Quote: Chelsea ~ “I can’t do it, Op. I can’t sit around and pretend like every thing’s fine. I can’t pretend that I’m okay seeing you every day and knowing I can’t touch you. It hurts, Op. It hurts so bad.”
Optimus ~ “I can’t …”
Chelsea ~ “Let me go”
Optimus ~ “I can’t …”

Living outside the club’s protection, Chelsea tries to patch her broken heart. But her life takes a nasty turn making Optimus realise his ginormous mistake and only hopes its not too late. Secrets are out, betrayals abound from all sides and even worse, the baddies— they are on her heels. Optimus goes crazy. I went dooallay and with heart pounding nineteen to the dozen, I swore my head off. Is this the end for them or do they get their HEA? Read it and find out.

Now the ending. Miss Jane, how could you do this to me? I need the next book like now! Regardless of the slip ups in the editing which were few and far between, this read had my full attention from page one. I became part of the story which I have rated this five stars. I have already recommended this author to friends. Well done you.
