ARC Review: Dragon's Lair

If you are looking for a gritty, grimy MC book, you won't find it here. However, what you will find in Dragon's Lair is a few laughs, some sexy times, and some delicious men that you want to read more about (and hope they get their own stories!)

Faye has had a thing for the five years older Dex since she was five herself. He was the cute older boy next door that she followed around and he doted on for years. Her home life was challenging; her mother was a woman obsessed with outward appearances and her father kowtowed to everything she wanted. When Dex left home, she started dating his younger brother a few years later, and they had been together ever since...until she went to his dorm room and found him having an affair. When she decided to go have a night out on the town, she runs into Dex and has the one night stand of her life. She also finds out a while later that she is pregnant. When Dex finds out, he makes/convinces her to come back and live with him at the Wind Dragons MC clubhouse, and here is where the story takes place.

Faye is an over-inquisitive sass-mouth, so it makes sense that she is getting her law degree. She says whatever she is thinking and luckily for her, the brothers mostly think she is funny. Faye has no idea what the MC lifestyle is like but gets a crash course from Dex who is the Vice President. We know the guys get into shady business and have beef with other MCs but the story told here isn't dark; in fact it's quite light, as if Faye brought the illumination with her. Dex is a gentleman and a rogue, and his chemistry with Faye sizzles. They are great together and this was a good read. I'm definitely on board for the next in this series!

Review: Fracture

Fracture by Callie Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I continued my love affair with Zeth and Sloane in this second entry in the series (and one-clicked my way to the third book!) This time around, Zeth is dedicated to finding Sloane's sister when it comes to his attention that the suspicions he has had about his mobster boss are becoming confirmed. He is playing a dangerous game now, but so is Sloane every time she even talks to Zeth. The sparks fly whether they are in person or over the phone (that was a hot scene!) and somehow with every scary, sexy moment they seem to be getting closer. Love it! They are in a bit of a pickle right now, so I can't wait to see how this turns out!

Review: Deviant

Deviant by Callie Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immediately after finishing this one, I one-clicked the next in the serial. So good!
If you like your stories dark, a little sinister, and a lot hot, then I can't recommend this serial enough.

Sloane is willing to do anything to find her younger sister who is missing. Her sleuthing has led her to a sleazy private detective who asks her to trade sex for information, but not sex with him, sex with a client with very particular tastes. Zeth is a dangerous man, and their first meeting is dark, sexy, and scary, but there is something tender there are well. So addicted!

ARC Review: His Mad Passion by Ella Goode

Fans (like me) of The Motorcycle Clubs books already know Wrecker and Chelsea. Wrecker is the son of the Death Lords MC, Judge, and has been in love with his stepsister Chelsea since they were teens. Chelsea's mother ditched her with Judge left to raise her, and he was the best parental figure she had. After doing some time, Wrecker came out of prison with a mission to win Chelsea over despite their tenuous familial relationship, and they have been together ever since. However, the police chief still has a hard on to catch Wrecker doing any little thing since he is on parole, and not everyone in their small town approves of Chelsea and Wrecker's relationship, not that Wrecker gives a fuck.

It's very cool to check back in on a couple we already have met. Wrecker is committed more than ever to Chelsea, and that in and of itself is so very hot. Chelsea and Wrecker find themselves involved in some bad times when the snobby woman who accosted Chelsea in the grocery store winds up dead the next day. Chelsea and Wrecker know that he didn't do it since they were in bed all night long (well, not technically in the bed for part of that time, but you get the point. Sexy times!) Now they have to prove his innocence so that he doesn't have to go back to prison for violating his parole. A great sexy read, as always, and while their story will continue there isn't a tortuous cliffhanger here.

ARC Review: Hard Ride #1 by Opal Carew

Olivia has found herself in a desperate situation. Despite the fact that she makes a nice living, she needs money, and a lot of it. Her sister is chronically ill, and insurance isn't covering the bulk of  her medical costs, so Liv has put the burden on herself to take care of as much as she can. When she reaches out to an ex on the wrong side of town, she finds herself in a predicament, not once, but twice. Luckily for her, she is saved by Devin, or Shock as he is known now.

These two have an interesting history. Liv knew Shock in college, and they were both different people then. Shock has always wanted her, but Liv held back her attraction for personal reasons. They have some very hot chemistry, and Shock's crew is all about...sharing. When Liv comes to Shock for a loan, he decides he knows how she can repay him. Nothing like a sexy arrangement!

I can't wait to read the last two parts of this story. Liv is nervous about the arrangement but we know how much she is attracted to Shock. Will it be enough to overcome her  trepidation about the arrangement? Meanwhile Shock is all big, tough biker, but when it comes to Liv he also shows a lot of restraint and gentlemanly behavior.

So excited to see how this relationship develops!
