Rich. Vicious. Vengeful. Forbidden.
The Boys of Clermont Bay had always been untouchable. 

The Taste of an Enemy, the first angst-filled new adult romance in The Taste of an Enemy Duet from Holly Renee is available now! 

Rich. Vicious. Vengeful. Forbidden. The Boys of Clermont Bay had always been untouchable. 

And Carson Hale was the worst of them all. 

He was pretentious and a player, and he had hated me for so long I forgot that we were ever anything more than enemies. 

Brutally beautiful and savagely heartless, his only plan was to ruin everything I loved. 

But dares were made, and even though I had no business saying yes, I found myself in trouble and forced to work with my rival to get us out of it. 

He had always been cruel, but something changed. 

The lure of him was too much. The way I craved his touch was unbearable. 

Just as I fell for him, he proved himself to be exactly who he had been all along.

We’re back in Clermont Bay with tons of drama, angst and an enemies to lovers second chance romance. I was dying to see where the author would take Carson and Allie’s story after we met them earlier in the series. You could tell right away there was something going on with these two, but I wasn’t sure what it was. Apparently once upon a time….a long time ago they were best friends, they were each other’s everything until one day they weren’t. That was then and this is now and the now comes with a ton of shit to unpack from their past.

“Because we were friends once upon a time, whether he wants to remember it that way or not, and he was the one who decided that what we were was over.”

As much as Allie would love to avoid Carson it’s nearly impossible. They have all the same friends and go the same school. Now she must constantly brace herself for the snide comments and hateful things that her former bestie says to her. It’s like he never misses the opportunity to bully her, and it always hits where it hurts the most. I really like Allie. For as much as Carson pushed and tried to make her feel like shit, she wasn’t afraid to push back. You could just feel right away that she still cared for him. She would try to catch glimpses of the Carson she knew and loved even when he was being the biggest asshole. But when someone else shows interest in her and she starts to move on things quickly change.

“He was like the warmest of memories mixed with the harshest of reality.”

Carson loved to hate Allie and relished the chance to never make her forget that. He was the bully, asshole and former best friend. But he was also the boy who felt broken and tried desperately to hide it behind his popular playboy persona. He may have come off like he hated her, but his eyes tracked her everywhere she went. You knew that his heart belonged to the girl who was part of so many of his good memories. A bet was made, a dare of sorts, and Carson will do whatever it takes to win…but at what cost?

“I had no choice but to make Allie fall for me even though I had been convincing her to hate me for years.”

This book had a ton of angst and a constant push and pull between Allie and Carson. I love a good second chance romance with the whole enemies to lovers twist, and I did really enjoy this book. It just wasn’t my favorite of the series. The pace for me was a little off and went from I hate you to let’s turn these tables quickly. Those parts were a little all over the place for me. I loved that Allie had no problem sticking up for herself. She was a great mix of a good heart with a side of sass and kick ass. I really loved Carson once we got to know him a little more. I get that he was hurt by Allie but hating her all those years was a lot. I was pulling for them to make it but then that ending?! That cliffhanger killed me and I need to know what happens next!

“I’m just not capable of giving you the things that I know you would want, and you’re not capable of only having the things I’m willing to give.”

Excerpt

I walked into Wings and Things and spotted Eli as soon as I made it through the door. He smiled before standing and coming to meet me. I couldn’t tell if anyone else was already at the table, and I tried to remind myself that I shouldn’t care. Tonight was about having fun and getting to know Eli. 

Carson didn’t matter for either of those things. I would just drown him out and pretend he wasn’t there. That was what I was used to doing. That was what the two of us had been doing for years. 

Even though I was already a little but irritated that Eli hadn’t offered to pick me up. My dad was irritated by that fact too. 

“You look beautiful.” Eli grinned before pulling me into a hug. 

“Thank you.” I breathed in the scent of his warm cologne, the smell familiar and calming. “You look nice as well.” 

I looked up at him as he let me go. He was much taller than me, although shorter than Carson, and he had a smile that made me feel comfortable. 

He grabbed my hand in his and led the way back to the table. I fixed my hair while I was still blocked from view, and I planted the best smile I could manage on my face as he pulled out the chair for me that was directly across from Carson.

“Thank you.” I settled into my seat and tried to avoid making eye contact with Carson.

“Allie, this is Kimberly. Kimberly, Allie. I think you all might know each other.” 

I looked across the table at Kimberly, and of course I knew her. We had gone to school together since grade school, and I had hated her almost as long. She was popular, conceited, and a perfect fit for Carson. 

“Of course.” I nodded and pulled out my menu. “How are you, Kim?”

“I’m perfect.” She giggled and looked over at Carson. His hand disappeared under the table, and even though I couldn’t see it, I knew that his hand probably rested on her thigh. 

I wanted to rip it off. 

“Awesome,” I mumbled and tried to focus on the menu. 

Carson laughed under his breath, but I ignored him. 

“What are you getting?” I looked to my right where Eli sat. “Do you want to share some wings?”

“Oh.” He looked up from his menu. “I was thinking about getting the burger.” 

“A burger at a wing place.” Carson scoffed and tossed his menu down on the table. “I’ll share an order with you, Allie. Kim’s getting a salad.” 

He didn’t give me time to answer. As soon as the waitress came to our table, Carson opened his mouth. “My girl Allie and I are going to share a large order of wings, extra ranch for both of us. No carrots. She hates those.” 

I looked at him like he had lost his mind because I was pretty sure that he had. 

“What can I get you to drink?” The waitress was now looking at me. 

“Um, just a Coke, please.” 

Everyone else ordered their food, and I fidgeted with my hands under the table. 

“So, Allie, how is school going for you?” I looked up at Eli. I had almost forgotten he was there. 

“It’s all right. I’m so ready for fall break, though.” 

“Me too.” He nodded. “Are you going anywhere? My family is taking a trip to Europe.” 

“No.” I almost choked on the word. Sometimes I forgot just how far apart my family was from those who went to Prep. They were made of money, old money to be exact, and guys like Eli had never had to think about working or how he’d pay for college. “We typically stay home and do a Thanksgiving meal at our house. It’s real low-key.” 

And my dad would still be working every day except for Thanksgiving, and my small house would be busting with people. My grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. We were always together on holidays, and I loved it. 

It may not have been Europe, but it was ours. 

“That’s cool.” He nodded and turned his chair to where he faced me better. “We’ve been going to Europe for years now. My parents love it, and they take us about every other year. Have you ever been?” 

“To Europe?” I shook my head, and suddenly I felt ridiculous. “No. The farthest I’ve been is Disney World.” I didn’t mention that had been almost ten years ago. 

I could hear Carson and Kimberly talking across from us, and I hoped he was too enthralled with her and her perfect face to even consider listening to our conversation. 

Eli laughed like I had just told a joke, but I hadn’t. “That’s too bad. I bet you would really like Europe.” 

“What makes you think that, Eli?” Carson was leaned back in his chair with his arm resting on the back of Kimberly’s. 

Eli laughed nervously and looked between me and Carson. “It’s Europe.” He shrugged his shoulders. 

“But you don’t know anything about Allie specifically that would make her love Europe, correct?” 

Eli opened his mouth, but Carson continued. 

“Like you have no clue that she’s been dreaming of going to Paris forever, and she has this little Eiffel Tower key chain that she’s had on her set of keys since she’s had them. Or that she thinks she’s part Irish because she has a little bit of green in her eyes.” 

“I didn’t realize you knew so much about her.” Eli was no longer aloof. He was sizing Carson up, and I wasn’t here for a pissing contest. 

“Well, now you do.” Carson stared back at him with the same unrelenting gaze, and I felt like I was going insane. 

Carson hadn’t given a shit about me since that night he needed me and I wasn’t there. If he wasn’t ignoring me altogether, he was making me wish he was, and now all of the sudden, he wanted to share wings and spew facts about me like he was my best friend. 

“Stop,” I hissed. “You’re being an ass. Aren’t you supposed to be on your own date?” I looked over at Kimberly, and she looked uncomfortable. I couldn’t blame her. I felt uncomfortable too. 

The waitress arrived back at our table with food in hand, and we were spared from whatever Carson was going to say next. He looked down at the food, and his bright eyes looked so hollow. He scrunched his brow, something he always did when he was upset, and his jaw stiffened. I didn’t know if he was angry with me or with himself. 

But I didn’t want to find out. I quickly grabbed a wing from our plate and took a huge bite. Sauce dripped down my chin, but I didn’t stop. The food was a distraction. If we were eating, then we weren’t talking, and I couldn’t stand to hear anything more from Carson right now. 

Not after everything he just said. Not with the way he had brought up memories of me like it wouldn’t mess with my head. 

“This is good.” I wiped at my mouth with the back of my hand. “Do you want a bite?” I looked over to Eli, and he shook his head as he looked at my half-bitten wing. 

“Nah. I’m good.” 

“Suit yourself.” I shrugged as I looked down at his measly-looking burger. 

“I’ll take one.” Carson reached forward, his fingers wrapping around my wrist, and he stood in his seat enough to bring my hand to his lips. I stared at him, shocked by what he was doing, but there wasn’t an ounce of shame in his gaze. 

He didn’t look away from me for a second as he bit down into the wing I was still holding, and I couldn’t stop myself from holding my breath as his lips met my fingers. Carson Hale wasn’t just taking a bite of my chicken. He was causing a scene, and part of me wondered how he had gotten so damn good at it. 

He ran his tongue over the edge of my thumb, licking up the sauce that had dripped there, and I felt like he had just used his tongue on parts of my body that no one else ever had. I pressed my thighs together as I watched his mouth, and I couldn’t bring myself to care that Eli was watching me as Carson finally let go of my hand and settled back into his seat. 

“You’re right, Allie. That’s absolutely delicious.” He licked his lip before picking up a wing of his own, then began eating like that display hadn’t just happened. 

I picked up my napkin, quickly dropping my gaze to my lap as I wiped my hands, but I couldn’t get the feel of him off. And I didn’t know if I wanted to.

I don’t know how the hell Caitlyn Dare is does it, but this series just keeps getting better and better! With two jaw dropping cliffhangers in a row, I had no idea how this book would play out. But OMG I am 100% invested in all the chaos the Savage Falls Sinners MC world brings.

“Death is part of being in an MC. But it’s not meant to be like this.”

That bombshell at the end of book two had my jaw hitting the floor and this book picks up right where the last one left off. Sadie is safe for now but where the hell is our main man Dane? The clubhouse is on full lockdown after that bloodbath with a million unanswered questions. With Nolan Creed on his deathbed and Darren on the loose what will happen between the Reapers and Sinners? Once Dane is back how will he handle the secret that could change everything?

“But I’m not a fucking Reaper. I’m a Sinner.”

There is so much filling the pages of this story. More angst, drama, bloodshed, insanity and steam. The steam in this one…OMFG. The pages were on fire with one hot scene after another. The chemistry between Sadie and her men is off the charts and thank you Caitlyn Dare for that! This book is so damn hot. In this book we get to see a different side of all of favorite four. Sadie has always been a badass, but we see her in a little different light. Her boys have her heart and she is willing do whatever it takes to show them that. She’s still the Sadie we know and love but a little softer and more emotional in this one. Rhett isn’t always the best at sharing, but he seems to be learning that sharing is caring. Big scary baddie does have a bit of a soft side but don’t worry he is still all hot alpha. Wes is amazing as always and proves his loyalty again and again. He shows that he is here to stay and Sadie is his everything. Dane goes through so much in this book. At times it’s heartbreaking but he is surrounded by people who love him. If only he can let them all fully into his darkness so they can help him fight to see the light. I absolutely love Dane, and I’m so glad he has Sadie by his side.

“And now I get to keep you. I get to be yours…I can’t lose you, princess. I can’t ever fucking lose you.”

In what we have come to expect from this series, this book ends with another huge ass cliffhanger that had my head spinning. Gahh…that one killed me. This book. This series is amazing! I honestly can’t get enough. The characters, storyline, steam and phenomenal writing. They are all tied up in the fantastic chaos that is the Sinners MC. I need the next book, now!

BOOK BLURB

Fear. Desire. Redemption.

When I was taken…it changed me.

Once, I was the life of the party.

Not anymore.

I told myself that I was okay. I almost believed it, until the day I was forced to face my past and my nightmare came to life.

Now the Four are the only ones I can turn to, and Cassius Drummond has made it his personal mission to help me out.

No matter how much I tell myself that he’s off-limits, the more time we spend together, the more I want him.

Bound by my past, I know I’m no good for him, and I’m nothing more than a convenient distraction while we’re stuck with each other.

It’s going to end in heartbreak.

But every time he smiles at me, I find myself falling a little bit more.

The Bonds We Break is a standalone mature new adult romance, but is best enjoyed after the previous four books in the series.

Our favorite Four are back and this time it’s all about Cassius and Jessa. Thankfully we still get plenty of all our other favs in this book. I love Cass and have been waiting for his story. I knew there was something special about the ladies man and his signature sexy smirk. And we all remember Jessa DeWitt…the girl you couldn’t help but love to hate. I will admit I was a bit skeptical when I found out Jessa would be the heroine. But somehow the author made it all work.

“I thought I was untouchable, but I was wrong. How easily it all came crashing down.”

Jessa used to be the queen bee of Alstone college. The token mean girl who’d stab you in the front just so she could see the look on your face. We all remember how much of a super bitch she was to Winter when Caiden chose her. I mean, in all fairness, he did use Jessa too. But the Jessa we knew before, the one I loathed, was not the same Jessa we see in this book. Severe trauma reshapes a person and getting kidnapped did that to Jessa. She is just a shell of the person she once was. All of the popularity and everything that came along with it doesn’t matter to her now. She sees things differently and is trying her best to tell herself she is okay. That all changes when the monster from her nightmares becomes an unwelcome reality. She’s scared and automatically turns to the one person she knows can help her, Cassius Drummond.

“Life was good, and I was happy. I was the master of my own fucking destiny. Everything was as it should be. Until it wasn’t.”

Cass and Jessa have a history…a hot and steamy one. One that goes back before Jessa set her sites on Caiden. The reason Jessa was taken is woven around and intertwined with the four so it makes sense she would turn to them. Cass is right there for her. In a way, he feels responsible for her, and I love how protective he is. We see a different side of him in this book too. Always the joker and player…he’s different with Jessa. You could tell something was there between them right away even if there are no strings attached. I also love how even though Jessa was scared, she was still strong. She didn’t let what happened completely break her. The broken parts she willingly let Cass help heal. I really liked how their relationship developed and although the others weren’t too keen on her being there in the beginning, she slowly became part of the group. The friendships and bonds in this series are one of my favorite things about it.

“I wanted more of her. To consume her. Like I said. Completely and utterly fucked.”

This book didn’t have as much drama and suspense as the previous books. It was more centered around Jessa and Cass and how they really saw each other and grew together. There were a lot of super steamy parts and just random quick spots of suspense and drama tossed in the mix. Two people who I never thought would end up together, but it just worked. I love Cass. I wouldn’t say I love Jessa…but I do like her. I really enjoyed this book, but it’s not my favorite of the series so far. It was a little slower paced than the others. I am really, REALLY looking forward to Zayde’s book.

“What did I say? All the best love stories start with an epic blowjob. Mine did.”

Too bad he only thought of me as his best friend’s little sister.

Naïve and innocent. Only eighteen. Completely off-limits.

Unrequited love… was there anything more painful?

Turns out there was—when he kisses you but has no memory of it.

When he tells you his heart was broken, and he doesn’t believe in love.

When he doesn’t want you kissing anyone else, but you’re stuck in the friend zone.

Despite the odds stacked against us, my foolish heart refused to stop loving him.

Now I’m falling under his spell. Drowning in his perfect lies. Addicted to his stolen glances and forbidden kisses.

I’m on a collision course with disaster and only one thing is certain… Jesse McCallister is going to ruin me.

Eighteen-year-old Quinn has been in love with Jesse McCallister for as long as she can remember. Her older brother Mason’s best friend, Jesse was basically a permanent fixture with the Cavanaugh clan. He’s nine years older and definitely off limits as far as her brothers are concerned. It’s always been an unrequited love but a kiss on her eighteenth birthday may change all that…Quinn hopes.

“It was no exaggeration to say that I have been in love with Jesse my entire life. Too bad he only thought of me as his best friend’s little sister. I had one summer to turn things around.”

Jesse McCallister is a motocross god. He rides a bike like he was born to be on the track but some serious shit goes down with his now ex-fiancé and team. He heads home to Texas for the summer to lie low, work at the bar he partly owns and spend some time with those closest to him. Being home also means seeing more of Quinn Cavanaugh, a lot more than he knows her brothers would be happy with. Jesse’s not looking for another relationship after the way his last one ended. Quinn will be heading to sunny California to attend school at the end of summer so she’s shooting her shot…even if it may break her heart. Will Jesse ever see her as more than the little girl he pretended to marry when she was five or will they crash and burn before they even get a chance?

“Love makes you reckless. All logic and reason flew out the window, and you let your emotions take the driver’s seat.”

This book was intense with a ton of angst. I loved that it was a slow burn and the author brought so much of their past and strong connections into this story. It was a little hard for me to get into the story at the beginning but the second half really picked up. I loved Jesse from the start but I honestly had a hard time with Quinn at some points. I don’t know if it was her age or what but I was annoyed at how much she pushed and obsessed over Jesse. It was clear there was a connection there. It felt redundant but that’s my opinion. Maybe it won’t bother others but it drove me a tad crazy. This is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone and I did not read the others. I think it might have been better if I did because I felt like I was missing out on some key factors and character history that left me a little lost and a whole lot curious. I did however love the way the author wrapped it all up. The last few chapters were my favorite. Overall it was a decent story and I found it entertaining.

“He was my friend and soul mate. He was everything I’d always dreamed he would be. Unforgettable. Irreplaceable. The love of my life. If only I could be his too.”

With a monster of a cliffhanger at the end of book one, Sadie has been taken and her boys and the rest of the club are hell bent on finding her. And who the hell just signed their own death certificate when they decided to mess with the Sinners’ princess and why? Could it be a rival MC or does it hit closer to home?

“I rip the door open and race inside with my gun raised and ready to kill any motherfucker who might have touched what’s mine. What’s ours.”

Since Sadie is an obvious target her Dad, the MC President, makes sure she always has a least two guys with her at all times. Luckily for her that’s Dane and Rhett and they have zero problem keeping a careful watch on her and keeping her occupied. While it’s crystal clear right away that Dane has always wanted Sadie, Rhett tries his damn hardest to resist what’s happening. He isn’t a fan of sharing his favorite toys, at first. I was dying to see where Wes fit into their little mix and wow…just wow. This book has some of the hottest scenes I’ve read in a long time and I am one hundred percent here for it. So. Damn. Hot.

“She fucking disarms me , and she has no idea.”

I loved Sadie in this book. I loved her in the first but I feel like her personality came out a bit more. She fought for what she wanted. She fought hard and didn’t take shit from anyone. She’s a legit bad ass. I loved all the guys but was still torn. I’m with Sadie and why choose only one but I’ll admit I lean towards Dane and Wes a tad more. Especially after we learn more of both their backstories in this book. All of them bring something different into the relationship and it’s obvious how much they all love Sadie. Even if they all haven’t admitted it to themselves yet. They put their princess first and the chemistry on every single page is just off the charts. Seriously this book is so fucking hot. Sadie needs and wants them all. She loves them and is all in with their relationship.

“I already care about them – each of them. And I know they care for me, in their own ways. But can it truly work, the four of us together? I guess only time will tell.”

I was thinking this book could not possibly bring anymore angst, drama or craziness than the first book did…but holy shit was I wrong. This book was non-stop chaos from start to finish and I loved every single second of it! With every answer we got in this book, one more question popped up. Wes and Dane’s backstories killed me. Where does Wes’s Dad fit into all this? Is Sadie really the only one with a target on her head? Or is one of her boys right there with her? Will Rhett let down his guard and take what he wants? I’ve got to say that bombshell of a cliffhanger at the end really got me. I kept trying to piece it all together but no way in hell was that ending even on my mind. Like what the actual fuck was that? I need answers and I need them now. If you like a dark and depraved and oh so juicy MC reverse harem you have to read this series!

“He takes a step closer and raises his gun. Fuck this is it. This is where I die.”
