Review: No in Between

No in Between
No in Between by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This may have been the strongest entry into the series for me! Chris and Sara are stronger than ever, it seems like Rebecca's mystery is closer to being solved than ever, and at least one villain has been exposed to stand justice...hopefully.

Ava is in custody, but she is fighting back, and fighting dirty. Mark is not himself, as he is dealing with Ava's confession of killing Rebecca and a possibly terminally ill mother in New York. It seems like Crystal from Riptide in New York may have a deeper connection to Mark than Sara knew. However, though all the media scrutiny, the police interference, and watching their backs, Sara and Chris have resolved to work together to work through their triggers and focus on their future. They have as much chemistry as ever, and their relationship is actually very sweet. Chris continues to assert his Dominance and train Sara in the ways of the submissive, emphasizing trust.

There are still more pieces of the mystery of Rebecca's journals to unravel, and this entry was a juicy one!

ARC Review: Reaper's Stand by Joanna Wylde

 Reaper's Stand by Joanna Wylde

I love reading a book about a grown-ass man, and Reese "Picnic" Hayes is all of that and more. President of the Reapers MC, widower, and father of 2 adult women making their own way, Picnic decided that he could never replace the dearly departed Heather Hayes with anyone else. That is, until he met the new owner of the cleaning service they hired, London Armstrong. London is 38, a small business owner, and single mother to the wild Jess (London's cousin's daughter who suffers from medical issues because of drug use when she was in the womb.)

For six months Picnic has eye-fucked London to distraction, and London has been harboring some kinky secret fantasies. However, she has been dating handsome police officer Nate for a little while and due to their busy schedules they haven't exactly sealed the deal yet. One night, London has to pull Jess out of a Reaper party, and that starts the wild ride of Reaper's Stand.

It's no secret I have been a fan-girl of the series since the first book, and this book goes along way to solidify my Joanna Wylde auto-buy rule. Reese is hot, just turned 43, sexy as hell, and apparently hung like his buddy Horse. (Damn, I need to re-read Horse's book!)  The chemistry between Reese and London is ridiculous and the fact that these characters are a little older is a huge plus for me. The diversity in characters, wealth of knowledge, and the well-researched world building that Joanna Wylde has done make her books richer and realistic than most other books of the genre.

The action and sexy times keep the pages turning and if you are like me, you will devour this quickly.  Another 5 star read that keeps your appetite whetted for the next in the series!

ARC Review: Beyond Addiction by Kit Rocha

When we last left Sector 4, the Rachel/Ace/Cruz triangle turned into a triad and a younger Mia found out how hot an older man can be in Ford. Oh yeah, and my girl Trix was kidnapped. Cliffhanger!

Trix came from Sector 5, and thanks to Dom (an ex-O'Kane) she was kidnapped and brought back. To everyone in  5's surprise, it turns out that Trix was actually Tracy; Tracy was basically next in line to be Mac Fleming's personal toy before everyone assumed she overdosed...including Finn, her boyfriend. Instead, she got clean and escaped to 4, changed her name, and never looked back.

For years Finn has been living a shall of a life. He has a personal vendetta to take Mac Fleming and Sector 5 down. He always felt guilty about Tracy's death; he wasn't strong enough to save her from her addiction, and as Mac's top seller, he had to live with the fact that he was not a good guy. He was a villain, and he wasn't living to make a future for himself, he was living to take down Mac Fleming. That is, until he saw Trix for the first time in years. Alive.

After that, he had a new mission: Get Tracy Trix back home to the O'Kanes. Another awesome entry into the Beyond series by Kit Rocha that shows us even more of the sectors, introduces us to new characters, and even new villains. I can't wait to see how things play out in the new world order created by the events in this book. Finn had a lot to prove to the O'Kanes, and it was actually refreshing to see the O'Kane way of life through his eyes. The overwhelming theme with Finn was that he loved Trix, and he would do whatever he could to prove that to her, and everyone else because it was important to her. Loved it, and I am chomping at the bit already for the next one!

Review: Vipers Run

Vipers Run
Vipers Run by Stephanie Tyler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good motorcycle club read about Calla, an assistant to a private detective, and Cage, a member of the Vipers MC. They meet when Calla answers her boss' cell phone and Cage is on the other end, close to death's door. They connect instantly over the phone, and Cage credits Calla with giving him the strength to battle death. Calla's past comes calling at the same time Cage's present issues did. Calla was a victim of a cruel experience with a teenage boyfriend, and has a complicated relationship with her father and brother. Cage escaped the Heathen's MC when he was 10 and joined the Vipers, but his brothers are still there with his father who has a vendetta against him for leaving the MC.

There were plenty of sexytimes with some great chemistry, and Cage and Calla were your typical hot alpha/sassy heroine couple. I was actually intrigued by the relationship between the pres and tattoo parlor owner, Holly. Good read.

Review: Dair

Dair by R.K. Lilley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This conclusion of the Wild Side trilogy was awesome. Finally,the answers to Iris' past and present are revealed, and Dair grows even more alpha. These two have the hottest sex around with chemistry off the charts. I'm actually very interested in Dair's friends and wonder if we will see a story featuring them at some point. It was really enjoyable to still be in the world of Cavendish's Las Vegas, even if it was from the lay-person's pov, and it was great seeing Frankie and Estella here.

RKL is a master storyteller, and I devoured these novellas no time at all. It was great to read this from Dair's pov, especially as it added to the mystique of Iris. Dair started out as a cuckolded divorcee, and ended up a proper alpha with a (tamed?) wild woman. Great read!
