BLOG TOUR - SILVER BASTARD by JOANNA WYLDE - SILVER VALLEY # 1 - BERKLEY - MC ROMANCE







By: Joanna Wylde
Published By: Berkley
Released: Available Now
Details: Digital copy for honest review, 448 Pages

RATING: 5 PUCK STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels 

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...
This edition only: A new Silver Valley story







BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

“Thought you weren’t that kind of girl.” 

I tried to breathe. “What kind of girl?”

“My kind.”


I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Silver Bastard the first in the spin off MC series, Silver Valley.

This is Puck Redhouse, former prospect and Becca’s story.

Joanna certainly started this new series off with a bang.

Puck has already done time for his club. He is loyal and he is tough. It’s time to celebrate his release... 

Enter Becca.

Joanna gives us a little shock to our system and then she lets us ride along with Puck as he and Becca sort themselves out.



“You dance like that with a lot of men?” I shook my head quickly. His eyes grew hot, smothering me, and I had the feeling that we were an instant away from something I couldn’t handle.

Love isn’t easy, it can come with baggage and demons and it takes effort to release those demons and to find trust.

Puck is absolutely gorgeous, he got my motor running. Becca is not a push-over, she has had a lot to deal with from those she should have been able to trust in.



“Dragging your ass out of there seems to have given you the wrong impression about me, Becs. Do not think for one minute that I’m the kind of guy who does the right thing. That’s not my style. I’m the guy who does what he wants when he wants, and trust me when I say I didn’t do nearly enough to you that night to get you out of my system.”

There is your normal MC shenanigans going on in the background of Puck and Becca’s story, the danger, grit, violence, betrayal, suspense...the SEX, but what a ride it was.

Joanna knows how to write Alpha men who jump off the page at you.

I look forward to reading more of Joanna’s works.

NOWHERE BUT HERE Synopsis:


An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

EXCERPT REVEAL - THIRD DEBT by PEPPER WINTERS - DEBT INHERITANCE # 4






Sneak Peek Excerpt 

Excerpt from Third Debt by Pepper Winters.


I’D GIVEN MY heart to my enemy.
I’d fallen.
Fallen.
Fallen.
Hard.
There was no bottom to my affection. No limit to what I would do to protect it.
Jethro was mine and it was up to me….
…up to me to end this.
I was no longer trying to save myself.
I was trying to save him.
From his nightmares.
From himself.
From them.

“She healed me. She broke me. I set her free. But we are in this together. We will end this together. The rules of this ancient game can’t be broken.”

Nila Weaver no longer recognises herself. She’s left her lover, her courage, and her promise. Two debts down. Too many to go.

Jethro Hawk no longer recognises himself. He’s embraced what he always ran from, and now faces punishment far greater than he feared.

It’s almost time. It’s demanding to be paid.

The Third Debt will be the ultimate test...

Author: Millicent Nankivell

Genre: Fantasy

Cover Design: Jemina Venter at #BookNerdFanGirl

Release Date: Late 2015




Blurb

Anastasia Avignon has always known she was a witch.

It’s only now that mysterious shadows have begun chasing her that things have started getting weird. Yes, weird even for a witch.

For the sake of her safety, Anastasia has been taken to the Blackthorne Estate, run by Lady Mirabelle Brackens, a friend of her mother’s who she’s never heard of before. There, she meets Warren Brackens and Dara Robbins.

But there's something curious about them. They seem to have access to more power than is normal for any witch...and she’s burning to find out why.

When Anastasia begins displaying unnatural powers of her own, it only fuels her desire to find out more. As a long forgotten curse is revealed, Anastasia finds herself in a tangled web of whispers from the past.

Like many other events in history, fear and shame have concealed the truth behind the fate of the last royal family. So why is it that now, centuries after their defeat, Anastasia is seeing their history everywhere? Why has she suddenly become the target of the one who destroyed them all those years ago?

Anastasia is convinced that Warren and Dara have the answers to her questions, but is the price of their knowledge worth paying?

Now she is being hunted, Anastasia must learn to trust in her own abilities and follow her instincts. But is Anastasia on a path predestined for her, or does she have the power to shape her own?








Author Bio



Most days, Millicent Nankivell believes she is a unicorn. Please don’t ever shatter her illusion.

As far back as she can remember, she has been creating stories that usually involved magic, mythical beasts, and creatures of her own invention. Not much has changed over the years. Well, except for also becoming a hopeless romantic as she got older.

If Millicent isn’t curled up in a dark corner with her laptop, sketch book, or reading a novel, you’ll probably find her out roaming local parks and gardens with her camera. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, and will argue that it is the best Australian city until she’s blue in the face!

BOOK BLITZ - RENDEZVOUS by ARIE LANE - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE








Title: Rendezvous
Author: Arie Lane
Cover Designed by: Christina Badder of CBB Productions
Release Date: April 8th





***WARNING*** This book is intended for 18+ due to strong language, violent scenarios, and sexual content.

This book is the completion to the book Tryst. It is NOT a standalone, and it DOES NOT end in a cliffhanger.

After having the love of his life walk away, Tristan is left with only one option, to find her and bring her home. He finds the help he needs in locating her from a most unexpected source. But no matter how much he wants her by his side, he knows she will never agree, so long as Darla is out there looking to destroy her.

Bentley has made some hard decisions in her life, but none harder than walking away from the one person she's come to love more than life itself. She knows Darla will never stop until one of them is dead. Having Tristan by her side just leaves him at risk, and gives Darla an extra piece of leverage to torment her with.

'If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.'
                                              Richard Bach


What happens when you just can't let go? When you know without a doubt they belong with you, but will never come back?

***WARNING*** This book is intended for 18+ due to strong language, violent scenarios, and sexual content.

Bentley Celeste is a witty, foul mouthed, reclusive, dark romance writer. She lives her life in solitude, hiding from her painful past and the one person hell bent on destroying her future. She doesn't have time for relationships and has no interest in allowing anyone but her best friend into her private little sanctuary.

Tristan Reece is sultry, sexy, and jaded. He also happens to be the cover model for Bentley's long time acquaintance, Electra. He believes everyone who he loves is going to betray him, and then walk away. Though he carries the reputation of a ladies man, Tristan prefers to keep his heart and his bed empty.

A chance meeting blind sides Bentley as she's nearly trampled by the giant wall of muscle that is Tristan. Tempers aren't the only thing to fly. Bentley may not have any interest in Tristan, but after getting his ass handed to him through a verbal assault, he can't forget the tiny Spitfire that sparks more than just his fury.

Both are stubborn, with the will to fight against each other until the very end. Will Tristan's determination be enough to fight the demons lingering in Bentley's shadow? Or is Bentley's fear strong enough to tear them apart.




Arie Lane is an avid reader and stay at home mom to two beautiful little boys. When not writing or chasing them around she is usually catching up with other Indie authors and constantly keeping up with new blogs. 

She loves to connect with people and is proud that she finally had the courage to put some of her crazy thoughts into written words. From the time she started reading her nose was always stuck in a book and she's couldn't be happier that now she's encouraging others to get their noses stuck also. Even if her readers are of the +18 variety.

GIVEAWAY & BLOG TOUR - REVIEW - COLLISON by EVIE HARPER - PORTLAND STREET KINGS # 1 - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE







Title: Collision (Portland Street Kings #1)

Author: Evie Harper

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 24, 2015




Synopsis

By: Evie Harper
Published By: Evie Harper
Released : Available Now
Details: Digital copy for honest review, 387 Pages

RATING: 4 STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

When I was fourteen years old, I killed for the first time. That day I learned cruelty wasn’t only within the walls we had just escaped.

It hasn’t been easy growing up in the middle of a war. A struggle to find shelter. Fighting to protect our bodies against the corruption of the streets. Nobody cared about the street kids who had to beg and steal to eat.

We are the Portland Street Kings – A family forged through loyalty not blood. To get through this life of broken dreams alive, we’ve become hard, uncaring and merciless. We do what must be done to keep our family safe, we will harm those who stand against us.

We have it all, feared and respected by those on the streets. Then she collided into my world, and with her came demons from my past, back to haunt us all.




Excerpt

“What if I already have, brotha? What if she’s already dead?” Rex’s grin is devilish, one I know all too well. He got to her.

I push off him, hard, causing Rex to slump to the ground roughly. My chest explodes and my whole world falls apart. I look around me at the people staring, at the dust in the air, at the cars in the distance.

Piper.

I grab for my chest at the exact moment I know my heart plummets to my stomach, as if I thought I could catch it first.

My mind is screaming at me to get to Piper to try to save her, but my panic is holding me back. Laughing at me, taunting me, reminding me that I actually thought I could let her go when really I can’t even bear the thought of living in a world where she doesn’t exist.

In a blur, I hear Pace yelling that the home phone isn’t connecting. I look to see Rex on the ground, laughing, almost cackling.

In a split second, the harsh world comes back into focus and I see everything for what it is: a world where I never win, where I’ll always be the underdog.

I look to Rex and growl, "I told you why I did it! Why your father had to die. He was a rapist, and he deserved to die. Now you've gone after my girl? I can't let you walk away from this." I look down to him with what I'm sure are black eyes, murder running through my veins. I feel it pumping through my blood like worms sucking me dry. "If you’ve gone after her, if she’s hurt, you better run," I growl. "You better run fucking fast, because I'm coming for you. I'm coming for you and your whole fucking crew. By the end of the day, I'm gonna to be washing your blood from my body and laughing. Laughing because your daddy still controls you even after his death. You won't take off your fucking rose-colored glasses and see him for what he was, a fucking sadistic asshole!" I end on a roar.





BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


What do the Portland Kings live for? Family. What else would someone kill for, do illegal activities and risk their freedom for? To protect our family we need respect, money and power, and I’ll go to any lengths to make sure they are fed, clothed and kept safe.

I thought this was a great start to Evie’s new series. I love the series title and I have been so drawn in by her marketing banners.

I enjoyed this first installment.

Slater is thirty one and Piper is twenty seven, they meet at a bar one night and they get to know each other better *waggles eyebrows* via the toilet cubicle.

Slater is the leader of the Portland Street Kings ( I kinda just like saying that) and he has a kind of insta infatuation with Piper after something happens and she has the same in return.

Toilet sex is their thing and when it comes time to move outside the cubicle...things get a little darker, a little grittier and we get introduced to Rex and the Parkland Poison Boys.

I did like all the guys names and I really like Della's character.

I will be honest and say I did have some questions, but that is me as a reader, I need to know things.

I love a twist and I sure got one which I LOVED and didn’t see coming. I look forward to seeing what Evie does in the future. 


Well done Evie!
