Motocross legend. Reckless heartbreaker. And the love of my life.

Too bad he only thought of me as his best friendโ€™s little sister.

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

Unrequited loveโ€ฆ was there anything more painful?

Turns out there wasโ€”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 doesnโ€™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 Iโ€™m falling under his spell. Drowning in his perfect lies. Addicted to his stolen glances and forbidden kisses.

Iโ€™m on a collision course with disaster and only one thing is certainโ€ฆ 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 Masonโ€™s best friend, Jesse was basically a permanent fixture with the Cavanaugh clan. Heโ€™s nine years older and definitely off limits as far as her brothers are concerned. Itโ€™s always been an unrequited love but a kiss on her eighteenth birthday may change all thatโ€ฆQuinn hopes.

โ€œIt 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 friendโ€™s little sister. I had one summer to turn things around.โ€

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-fiancรฉ 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. Jesseโ€™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 sheโ€™s shooting her shotโ€ฆeven 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?

โ€œLove makes you reckless. All logic and reason flew out the window, and you let your emotions take the driverโ€™s seat.โ€

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 donโ€™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 thatโ€™s my opinion. Maybe it wonโ€™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.

โ€œHe was my friend and soul mate. He was everything Iโ€™d always dreamed he would be. Unforgettable. Irreplaceable. The love of my life. If only I could be his too.โ€

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?

โ€œI rip the door open and race inside with my gun raised and ready to kill any motherfucker who might have touched whatโ€™s mine. Whatโ€™s ours.โ€

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 thatโ€™s Dane and Rhett and they have zero problem keeping a careful watch on her and keeping her occupied. While itโ€™s crystal clear right away that Dane has always wanted Sadie, Rhett tries his damn hardest to resist whatโ€™s happening. He isnโ€™t a fan of sharing his favorite toys, at first. I was dying to see where Wes fit into their little mix and wowโ€ฆjust wow. This book has some of the hottest scenes Iโ€™ve read in a long time and I am one hundred percent here for it. So. Damn. Hot.

โ€œShe fucking disarms me , and she has no idea.โ€

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 didnโ€™t take shit from anyone. Sheโ€™s a legit bad ass. I loved all the guys but was still torn. Iโ€™m with Sadie and why choose only one but Iโ€™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 itโ€™s obvious how much they all love Sadie. Even if they all havenโ€™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.

โ€œI 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.โ€

I was thinking this book could not possibly bring anymore angst, drama or craziness than the first book didโ€ฆbut 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 Daneโ€™s backstories killed me. Where does Wesโ€™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? Iโ€™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!

โ€œHe takes a step closer and raises his gun. Fuck this is it. This is where I die.โ€

When an old MC rivalry resurfaces, I find myself with not one, but two surly biker babysitters. Dane Stray, my ex-best friend, and Rhett Savage, my daddyโ€™s favorite member and perpetual thorn in my side.

I donโ€™t need protecting though, not the way Dane and Rhett think I do. But theyโ€™re determined to get all up in my business.

I hate themโ€ฆ except, I also want them. Both of them. Which is kind of awkward because Iโ€™m the club princess and one-hundred percent off-limits.

Thatโ€™s never stopped them taking what they want though.

One of them wants me.

One of them hates to want me.

And me? I just want to survive senior year and finally spread my wings.

Reverse Harem and bully romance are my jam but itโ€™s been a long while since Iโ€™ve read an MC book. They kind of fell of my radar but after reading Savage the first book in an all new trilogy by Caitlyn Dare, I have zero clue why I ever stopped reading them. This book was so damn good! I am obsessed. With sexy alpha tattoo bikers, a strong sassy heroine and some of the hottest scenes burning up the pages. I could not get enough and was completely immersed in the world of the Savage Sinners.

โ€œHeโ€™s sin wrapped up in muscle and a dirty mouthโ€ฆand now heโ€™s my what? Stepbrother?โ€

Sadie Ray is the daughter of the club president making her the club princess. She grew up in this world and knows how things work. When her dear old Dad announces he is taking in his deceased best friend’s kids, Sadie is beyond pissed. No way in hell she wants asshole Rhett Savage as her sort of stepbrother or his innocent sister River around all the time. But when the club Prez makes an order for Rhett and Dane to watch over the girls and enroll in the local high school, things start to get rather interesting.

โ€œIโ€™ve heard stories about Rhett. Savage by name, savage by nature.โ€

Rhett wants nothing more than to keep his distance from little Sadie Ray but hell if he can stick to it. Especially after his best friend Dane starts to make a move on what belongs to him. Rhett is all sorts of sexy alpha, roughness and this intense possessiveness. But the game changes even more when Dane, who was once Sadieโ€™s bestie, starts to mean and want more. Omg some parts of this book were so damn hot. Rhett and Sadieโ€ฆSadie and Dane. Hell, all of them together. I needed it. I wanted it and OMG I canโ€™t handle it! And just when we thought things could not possibly get any hotter or any crazier, Wes enters the game. Sadie has this intense chemistry with all three guys but each in their own unique way and I loved the was the author developed their individual relationships. How they all fit separately but somehow also together.

โ€œHis pace is brutal, his touch cruel, but it undoes me. He undoes me.โ€

Filled with so much angst, drama and craziness, this book is such an amazing start to what promises to be a kick ass series. I am so torn between the three guysโ€ฆas it also seems Sadie is. I thought Dane was it for me. But then Wes came along and Rhettโ€™s alpha asshole personality also started to win me over. But why choose when you can hopefully have all three? Thatโ€™s my vote and that cliffhanger?!? What the hell was that, Caitlyn Dare? I need more and I need it now. I can not wait for more!

Rain by A.L. Woods ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

Rain by A.L. Woods is now live!

I’m afraid of nothing and everything.
When that car accident changed my life twelve years agoโ€”I thought it was over.
Dom saved me.
I used to think that I could save him, too.

He was the only one who could see me.
But then Nate came along and saw me, too.
One is my past.
Only one will be my future.

I want them bothโ€”only one of them can keep me.
Eventually, I’ll have to choose.
Even if it burns me alive.

A car accident nearly killed her.
So the monster became what she needed: a hero.
But little girls grow up to whisper I love you’s and forever’s.
I should have never touched my best friend’s little sister.
When my actions threatened her safety, I did the only thing I could think of: I married her behind her older brother’s back.
A fire and a five-year prison sentence changed everything.
She threw away our vows, so I plotted my revenge.
There was only one thing I didn’t factor in upon my release.

I’ve spent the last eleven years on the run from my past.
I bed unsuspecting women and rob them in their sleep.
My mistake was underestimating Allegra.
She beats me at my own game.
When circumstances find me at her mercy, I’m determined to erase the tattoo of her pretty hazel eyes and her body under mine from my memory.
But Allegra’s fire isn’t easily forgettable.
And I’m not the only one who feels that way.
We both want her.
Only one of us can keep her.
May the best man win.

I was really torn on how to rate this story. I am honestly still conflicted but the writing alone deserves more than five stars. This book was definitely not an easy read and not just because itโ€™s one of the longest Iโ€™ve read in a while. There was just so much tucked between the pages of this story. I was completely overwhelmed and at times maybe a bit thrown off and confused. I loved the promise of a dark romance with an intense love triangle and believe me we do get that and a lot more. While it was not necessarily as dark as I hoped, there was still a heavy and intense sadness that lingered throughout most of the book.

โ€œIโ€™m not a hero. Iโ€™m not even the villain – Iโ€™m the lesson. The final one she had to learn.โ€

The author gives quite a few trigger warnings for this book, and I think those were definitely needed. This book is dark, gritty and so raw. These characters have layers of emotional trauma and a lot of mental health issues. The author didnโ€™t sugarcoat anything. It is as real as it gets and some parts of this story are painful.

โ€œHow much love have I expended on a man who would never love me back the way I wanted because he didnโ€™t know how.โ€

Allegra grew up with her brother raising her after some really shitty things happened in their past. Dom is her brotherโ€™s best friend. He’s ten years older than her and she knows he could easily break what little is left of her. Iโ€™d like to say Dom’s the good guy but the fact is heโ€™s not. Not at first or shit, maybe ever, but itโ€™s not his fault. I thought some fucked up shit happened to Allegra in her past but after learning about Dom, it all just spiraled. When I thought things could not get any crazier or more of a fucked up roller coaster ride, the author introduces Nate. One hell of an intense love triangle here. There was just so much going on that sometimes it was too much. All three have such darkness and trauma from their past almost suffocating them. But somehow between all the loss and chaos, there is also this beautiful love. I donโ€™t really want to go any further into detail because itโ€™s a story you need to just dive into. I hope youโ€™re a little bit prepared for how it flows. I loved it. I hated it. I am really not sure. It was intense, emotional, confusing and sad and maybe a tad too long. The writing was absolutely brilliant. Although it didnโ€™t end the way I hoped, itโ€™s a story that will stick with me for a while and the author’s note at the end is a must read for this one.

This second chance love story was one hell of an emotionally intense roller coaster. It had so many ups and downs, twists and turns that my head felt like it would never stop spinning. Itโ€™s a story that held the promise of that sweet and special forever kind of love. The kind some people wait their whole life for and still may never find. But for Raya and Nolan, it always lived next door. That is until a lie took the lives they knew and their plans and destroyed it all.

โ€œMy future was all planned out, one I thought I wanted. One I know I will regret walking away from in years to come.โ€

Raya and Nolan grew up next door to each other. Their families shared an amazing bond. Once the two became more than friends, it was clear to them and everyone around them that they were forever. They planned to go to college together with this bright and beautiful future but Nolan made a choice. He kept a secret from Raya and right before they were to go away to school, he took her heart, held it in his hands and shattered it. His lie and betrayal irrevocably destroyed all they were.

โ€œWhat Iโ€™m about to do will alter my life forever. I will hurt the one person I promised I never would. Iโ€™m a fucking coward. If Iโ€™d only been honest with her, things would be different.โ€

I loved Raya. She was fierce, determined and didnโ€™t let what happened harden her. Yes, it may have broken and changed her. But in time she rebuilt herself into a stronger more confident Raya and discovered she had so many other beautiful things to live for and love. I struggled big time with Nolan. I didnโ€™t understand the need for his secret. Or why he chose to do what he did to Raya. Why do things that way? Why be a coward? I will be honestโ€ฆI despised him most of the book.

โ€œOur futures were meant to be together. But his love is now my enemy.โ€

I really enjoyed this story. I was a mess for a while with a pile of tear soaked tissues and a half drunk bottle of wine by my side to keep me company as the author broke our hearts over and over again. But then she slowly and carefully put the pieces back together. This is not an easy story and as much as I loved Raya, I hated Nolan. Most of the book but Nolan did grow on me. There were parts of the story where I was rooting for a few other key players to make their moves. I found myself thinking they would have been better choicesโ€ฆeasier choices but love isnโ€™t always easy. I think the only reasons this wasnโ€™t a five star read for me is because at first I struggled with how part of the story started outโ€ฆwhen Raya was at college and went back home but it all came together as it should have. The other reason was Nolan and his choiceโ€ฆhis secret. I had a hard time getting past that. But overall, I really did love this book and the author is such a fantastic storyteller. I canโ€™t wait to see what lies ahead for the Callahan family and friends.

โ€œLet me love you. Let me fix what I broke.โ€
