31st August 2014

When Thatch Reston, new, up-and-coming hot shot in the tattoo world, goes to do a private ink job for the rock legend that helped put his name on the map, he never expected to meet the girl of his dreams.

And he didn’t.

Instead, he met California Huntington, who according to the tabloid press is a rich, self-absorbed, over-privileged socialite with a drug and alcohol dependency. In other words, everything Thatch is NOT looking for in a potential soul mate. If he were, hypothetically-speaking, looking for one at all, that is.

California Huntington has a secret she’s ashamed of. She perpetuates the media image of party-girl-gone-wild, only because it covers the real and ugly truth. Yes, she does abuse drugs, and yes, she has a problem with them, but it’s less addiction and more a side effect of what her real issue is.

Cali is bulimic – and has been since she was fifteen.

In her world, drugs and alcohol are glamorous, while an eating disorder is something sordid and dirty and should never be discussed in public. Cali soon realizes she needs to seek help before she falls deeper into that rock bottom she’s hovering on the edge of.

It takes one intense night with Thatch, a stranger who she’s just met, to change her life forever.

If only she could convince him that despite her past, she’s worth taking a chance on.

Wow, this book is good. The beginning of the book starts and we are thrust right into the action, and then from there we are moved to another time and place with no explanation as to why such an event occurred. Was it a nightmare, a figment of a delusional persons imagination? All we know is California (Cali) has issues and as we progress through the book we see where these issues arise from her evil step monster and step sister who are vile. When Cali and Thatch meet it is beautiful and different from so many other novels i have read, also i will never listen to Lana Del Rey the same way. Thatch is a tattooed hunk of a man, and hunk is not even the right word, he has so much going on in his life and to deal with you totally understand as a reader why he says and does certain things.
This is a story about addiction, redemption from your past be it that which you directly played a part in, and your past which you had no influence over and the events that occurred. When Cali and Thatch meet sparks fly, emotions are on overload and it is brilliant. All the supporting characters are so fun and witty, and provide the perfect support and push to Cali and Thatch and their story. This book makes you look at your life and decisions you make based on the people in it, however it also makes you realise you only have so much of a part in the decisions you take in your life, some things are out of your control. But this story makes you realise that you can go back and try and repair situations if you feel you need to or you can tread a new path.
I have since reading this book looked on goodreads and have seen that she has other books, that i will most certainly be looking into 🙂

Prisoner – release day

Prisoner
Annika Martin & Skye Warren
New Adult, Romance
October 23rd 2014

He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I have to teach, and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.
But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.
And you might crave him more than your next breath.

Tamed cover reveal

Tamed Book Cover Tamed
Torn series #5
K.A. Robinson
4th November 2014

Mistakes—my life has been full of them. Time and time again, I’ve tried to change, tried to make the right choices, but it doesn’t matter. I always screw up.

I hoped that Adam would be different, that he wouldn’t be a mistake. Our relationship was supposed to be about sex and nothing more.

Fun, easy, simple—that was what we wanted.

But things are never simple, not for me.

Adam changed me. He made me the person I am today. I hate who I am and what I’ve become. I'm not proud of the things I've done.

I thought my greatest mistake would be falling in love with him.

I was wrong.

My greatest mistake is much, much worse.

I’ve lost control.

I have a secret I can’t hide.

It’s going to destroy everything.

My name is Amber, and this is my story.

Tamed, Torn Series #5, will release on November 4th, 2014. This book focuses on Adam and Amber. Adam is the guitarist with a wild streak in the Torn Series band, Breaking The Hunger. Amber is the best friend of the main character of Torn, Chloe. Both of these characters have a wild streak, something you’re aware of if you’ve read the other Torn Series books.
 
Tamed can be read as a standalone.
 
I hope you like your rockers a whole lot dirty, because with Adam, that’s what you’ll get.

Merciless Ride – Chelsea Camaron

Merciless Ride Book Cover Merciless Ride
The Hellions Ride, #3
Chelsea Camaron
10th October 2014

Mercy is no friend of mine. Karma, she has yet to show kindness to me.
The hits just keep on coming for Tessie Marie Harlow. She has never had an easy life. Her mom disabled, her dad long gone, and a single mom raising a rambunctious little boy, that’s Tessie’s world.
Her childhood aspirations to be a nurse long since disappeared after a college spring fling both blessed and cursed her with a baby boy. Dropping out of school, she returns to her hometown and begins to settle in. Getting the only job she could as a bartender she spends her days caring for her son and nights serving the Hellions Motorcycle Club and their affiliates.
Tired of waiting for Rex to grow up she’s faced with the bane existence of her life until one night changes everything. In the darkest hour of her merciless ride through life, she’s saved by a quiet, laid back Hellion.
Andy ‘Shooter’ Jenkins has always been around. Too wrapped in Rex she’s never really noticed him before. He has never been loud or known to have the girls hanging all over him. He is a mystery. A chance encounter brings him to her rescue not once but twice.
The Desert Ghosts Motorcycle Club are in town and bring their own brand of chaos right to Tessie’s door. Forced into her day to day life, Shooter is doing everything he can to shelter and protect her as lines are crossed and a war between two clubs begins.
Secrets revealed putting two brothers in the Hellions Motorcycle Club at a serious crossroads in their lives.
This is not a ride for pleasure. This is not a ride for safety. This is not a ride for love. This is a ride for survival. Mercy has never once shined her grace down for these two, but in the midst of the danger and lies can they learn to rely on one another and ride it out together?

This book contains strong language, strong sexual situations, violence and is not suitable for readers under the age of 18. Please do not buy if any of this offends you. This is a work of fiction and is not meant to be a true or exact depiction of a motorcycle club but rather a book meant to entertain.

Now i thought i was all up on MC club books, i have been reading them for a bit now, but i had never heard of Chelsea Camaron until i got the chance to review her Hellions Motorcycle Club series. Luckily i got to read all three books, which i will put all the reviews up for on here but right now we need to concentrate on book 3 the most recent.
Yep i am caught hook, line and mc club to Chelsea Camaron and her writing style and the characters she has created.Her mc men are hot and bad ass but oh so loyal and full of heart deep down. Shooter is one of these men. Tessie is a woman who is sweet and smart and working so hard to make a better life for herself, her son and her disabled mother. She may not look like a warrior but to me she is, she has to deal with so much before the mc club and her life collide like a wave onto a rocky shore and she has so much more to survive as the two sides keep colliding. Most mc club books are family stories of a fashion being that the ones i have typically read bar a few are of the families that have been thrown together from all corners of life. But this book specifically number 3 is one that combines that family drama, scorching hotness and heart pounding action and suspense that we all love to read into one hell of a hellion book. Like i said this is book 3 and i will post the reviews for the other two books on here but i have to say this newest book is my favorite so far in the series and i do so want you to read Tessie and Shooter’s story and let me know what you think

About the Author
Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.
Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.
Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.
When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.
She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
