REV by J.C Emery – Review, Links and cover reveal for CRUSH!

 photo REV_zpsc6b71bfa.jpg


With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club’s Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities– especially now. He’s already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.

For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown’s resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.

When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso’s radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club’s help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.

Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.




I really enjoyed this book.

However it was not what I thought it would be.

I really really  freaking really love the whole Mafia Vs. Biker theme.

It just keeps the missing the mark slightly in my point of view.

Yes the mafia is mentioned and does play a bigger part in this book than in the last. But it kinda goes away.

One standoff.. and then a few mentions here and there. That’s it. (I really want to know what’s going to happen to “Junior”)

This was based more on the MC as a whole. As Grady is the Sgt at Arms. He is dealing with the loss of his best friend and not mourning as he needs to.

This is also affecting his daughter, Cheyenne. He just doesn’t realize it.


Well the school secretary Holly does.

She decides to confront Grady about it as he avoids her at all costs.

There is awesome chemistry, but its hate at first sight. They both think the other is really really ridiculously good looking but they are too different. And besides, Grady is an asshole, and Holly has heard all about the types of guys that are in a Motorcycle Club. After all she grew up in this town, She knows how they all are.So she thinks!

Some things happen and Holly is targeted by the Mafia and used to get to Grady. (It is actually Alex’s ex that makes an appearance.) 

This starts their relationship.

Together they made me laugh and swoon. They bicker and it is hilarious! They make sweet sweet love. Ok so they fuck each other crazy! We get the story told from both POV’s and a kick-ass epilogue which leads us into Crush! (I not so secretly can’t wait for Chey and Jeremy’s story!)

Oh I do need to point out, that something HORRIBLE happens in this book to Holly’s cousin. We are there through the whole thing. People who CANNOT read about rape. Please don’t read that part. Or this book. It is violent. It is graphic. It does actually add to the story so I completely understand why the story went there, but as I said I know some people can’t handle that.

So yep.. all in all I liked it. I’m just REALLLLLLY hoping the Mafia storyline is going to kick in a bit more soon.

J.C Emery has knack for writing a great story that is dark but light.

You giggle, swoon, clench your jaw, mouth vomit, and sigh the whole way through.

“You ever play Street’Opoly?” Grady leans in and asks me.

“What?” I ask. I’ve heard of a lot of different versions of the game before, even one that could be totally customized, but never Street’Opoly.

“Well, you’re about to be schooled,” he says. He takes a pull of his beer and gives me a sly smile. The attention makes me blush, but after last night, it probably shouldn’t. Clearing my throat and tucking my hair behind my ears, I smile wide up at him. He smiles back broadly, the lines around his mouth and eyes deepening. He truly is gorgeous in a way that is all man and muscle and arrogance.

“You think you can teach me a thing or two?” I say in a low and breathy voice. My heart rate spikes, and I flush all over.

“Baby, I’ll teach you things that are illegal in nine states,” he whispers. Cheyenne makes a gagging noise from my other side. I glance at his lips then up at his eyes and back to his lips. My nerves have disappeared and in their place is pure, unadulterated lust. He dives in for a quick kiss and then pulls away like nothing happened.

“Well,” I say lowly while trying to clear my throat, “you can try, but you’re going to have to do it as something aside from the ship. I already called that piece.”

“My house, my rules, my ship,” he says. I feel his arm move behind me. The adult, mature Holly wants to think he’s making a move and wrapping me in his strong embrace, but the kid in me recognizes this move. It’s the same one my older brother, Theo, used when we were kids and he wanted to get his hands on something I had. Back then, Theo, Mindy, and I were inseparable. I may have fallen for this trick a few times when I was little, but Mindy and I soon learned the art of the hand-off. In my experience, every girl who’s had to deal with an overbearing male in her life knows about the hand-off.

I take a chance, lean in toward Grady, and blow out a shaky breath. His arm pauses for a brief second, and I pounce, grabbing the ship from the table and handing it off to Cheyenne. Like a pro, she grabs the ship, hops out of her chair, and runs around the table to Lisa, who is dumping wings out of the plastic bags and into a glass bowl.

“That’s fucked,” Grady says and leans against the back of his chair. He takes a pull of his beer and shakes his head. “You’re supposed to be on my team, Chey!”

“Ha! You grounded me last month for being like ten minutes late for curfew. You’re on your own, dude,” she says. He grumbles something about an hour and fickle memories, but doesn’t make a stink out of it.

These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can’t imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories– and everything has at least a splash of romance.

Young love is always perfect. Until it’s not.

Cheyenne Grady is a total daddy’s girl to her bad-ass father, the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club. She’s funny, and kind, and she just wants that deep, earth-shattering love like her dad has with her school secretary, Holly. But Cheyenne’s been looking in the wrong direction, because the only good that can come from the way she looks at Jeremy Whelan is a lesson in heartbreak.

Jeremy always wanted to prospect for the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and wear the same patch as his father. When a life-long dream becomes reality, Jeremy realizes that the outlaw lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it easy on relationships. He wants to be a good man, but temptation is everywhere.
Cheyenne is beautiful, and strong, and exactly what Jeremy could have forever. As long as he doesn’t screw it up.

Love is never more powerful than the first time.

Title: Before He Was Famous

Author: Beck Wicks

Release Date: May 29, 2014

Goodreads Link:

Before He Was Famous Blurb

Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton – the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine – she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?

The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other?

A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social media gone very, very wrong.




3.5-4 stars

We are all guilty of watching ONE episode of either The Voice, X Factor, Australia/America/UK/Timbuktu’s got Talent etc.

Well imagine if your best friend won it?

That’s exactly what happens in this book. Chloe and Noah have been BFF’s all their lives.

When Noah enters into the TV singing competition Chloe is is his number one fan.

When he wins she can’t be happier for him! It’s everything he has ever wanted.

She ends up moving to New York with him and his girlfriend to pursue her career as a photographer. Her boss however is using her for her close ties to Noah. It ends up being a win win though as Chloe makes Noah normal. Keeps him calm. and she agrees to be his personal blogger for the magazine.

She gets to go on tour with him. Show the world the Noah. The Noah she grew up with.

The Noah that she is love with but can never act on.

This way she gets to stay close to him, stay out of the lime light just like she wants.

However someone else is watching her.

Very closely.

Although she has not done anything to anyone, someone is stalking Chloe and wants to hurt her.
Is the ex-girlfriend? a pyscho fan? The wannabe pop star that is hanging around Noah?

Who is it and why? Well it’s not for the reason your thinking! You will have to read it and find out.


Ok so My thoughts? I really liked it. I’m a huge fan of reality TV but sadly no-one I know has ever been on it. I’m also not friend with anyone famous so I don’t know what it would be like to all of a sudden have my friend become this huge overnight success.

I really liked Becky’s writing style. The incorporation of today’s social media… mainly the tweets were hilarious! oh the Cat? LOVE IT! I giggled a lot in this book. Seriously guys.. it’s name was “THE GREAT CATSBY” AND it has it’s own twitter handle! LOL

It intrigued and gripped me from the first page. Alternate POV’s told the story of these two knuckleheads. How they were madly in love with each other but couldn’t tell each other.

I loved the stalker storyline, as mentioned before you think of yeah a crazy fan. BOOM! WRONG! Just wait and see…

So yes this was a bit light and fluffy and cutesy here and there. I would still tell you to read it! I can’t wait to see what comes next.

As this is book 1? is Chloe and Noah next? or someone else?

 Excerpt – Noah.

‘Noah!’ she yells again. ‘You have to spin for aunt Madeline, remember?’

It feels like so long since I saw Chloe laughing and something lifts from my shoulders almost instantly. Aunt Mads told us she and her boyfriend danced and span in the rain on the deck of a ship once, just because she’d seen it in a movie and always wanted to do it. Then, when it rained, she dragged us to her yard in The Bronx and we all span around till we were soaked and hysterical, doing stupid high kicks on the grass.

I can’t take my eyes off her as she spins and spins and spins. And I feel it hit me. It smacks me hard; the thought that Chloe is the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen, right here, right now, spinning like a figurine in a silver snow-globe.

She bounds up to me, giddy and still laughing. Raindrops are careening down her cheeks and her eyes are huge now. ‘Come fly with me, Peter,’ she breathes, reaching for the hand that isn’t clasped around the umbrella. ‘Or are you too grown up for that now?’

The wind picks up and clutches at her dress. I reach out instinctively to her face, run a thumb along her cheek, swiping at raindrops. ‘You’re drunk,’ I whisper, but even as she frowns and rolls her eyes at me I have to smile because I see her; the kid who held my hand when my dog died, who gave names to the snails in her yard, who made me jump about her bedroom carpet like it was an ocean full of islands.

I see the seventeen-year-old who clung to me when her dad died. The secrets we left in the branches; the way our desperate lips searched frantically for some modicum of sense as we let our minds go out the window and fucked with more passion, more heart than I’ve ever experienced with anyone else in my life; even if she was drunk, even if we were grieving. It doesn’t change what it meant to me.

Fuck. She’s amazing. I love her. Why the hell did I let her go back to Cooper? Why the hell did I not just tell her sooner? Would it even have made a difference?

She’s tugging on my arm and I realize I haven’t spoken yet. ‘Chloe…’ I start. But the flash strikes us like lightning. I’d know it anywhere and it has nothing to do with the weather.

‘Paparazzi,’ we say in sync, and I grab her hand, pull her with me as we both break into a run.

Sweet Destruction

by Paige Weaver

add to Goodreads


There’s a fine line between love and hate and they were about to cross it.

My name is Samantha Ross and this is my life.

I existed in a world that few know. Rundown trailers and crime-ridden streets were my home. Drugs and alcohol were the norm and happiness was the exception. I lived from day to day never knowing if I would have a roof over my head or food in my stomach. My life sucked. It took from me and gave nothing back.

But there was one certainty in my life. A black smudge on my window of hell.

Cole Walker.

He was a criminal. A thief. He brought hell and damnation with him wherever he went. He hurt and destroyed. He took and gave nothing in return. He was heartache and despair wrapped up in a perfect gorgeous package. Fast cars and fast women were his hobbies. His vices. But he had many.

I was one of them.

I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more.



Kellie’s Review

I REALLY like this book.
I loved that it was so real.

I mean yes we all love our bikers and billionaires and ex-army men etc.

But you know what? not everyone is rich, and not every girl that is dirt poor is going to find a rich guy to make it all better.

This book was about 2 poor people, trying to do the best they could in the world they lived in.

Sam is a hmm I wouldn’t say emo or goth. More a pin up style type of chick.
She works in a diner and looks after her junkie Mom.

Walker works in construction.
and Drinks.. a lot…

They live 2 trailers down from each other most of their lives.
That was when Cole Walker wasn’t boosting cars or serving time in Juvie.

They used to be close. As Cole was Sam’s brothers, Bentley’s best friend.
But something happened years ago.
Something that turned that friendship to hate.
there was no coming back from that.

Until Bentley gets in trouble.
Trouble that threatens Sam and he asks Cole to look out for her.


I’m gunna leave it there so you get the gist of it and want to find out what/how/who/when of the book yourself.

As started before I love how real it was. I have never read a Paige Weaver book before. Her writing style had me hooked and feeling from the first page. I love when a book is written in joint POV.
I just love knowing that they are both thinking at an event of time.
Cole tried to be badass… but he just wasn’t. I mean yes he had a temper.
However when you saw things from his POV you were like aaawww that was sweet!

The reason that there is 4 stars instead of 5.. for me it was the “climax” I still have questions about what went down and didn’t really get the answers I wanted. Maybe she left it open for a book 2. Or maybe that’s just the way it was and I’m being a fussy bitch.

Either way I saw yes, do give this a book when you want. Real. Raw and Romance! Ok so I lied.. there isn’t REALLY any romance. Just a super hot and bossy ex con who doesn’t really have a romantic bone in his body, but has great intentions!

Title: Four Score (Gypsy Brothers,#4)

Author: Lili St. Germain

Release Date: May 26, 2014



Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he knows what I’ve done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave this life and run away with him.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA.

And that’ll be when Dornan and the rest of his sons are dead and buried.

Jase might forgive me for what I’ve done.

But will he forgive me for the crimes I’m yet to commit?

Kellie’s Review 

Fuck! Lili writes one hell of a novella… and the cliffhanger.. always saves the best for the last page!

Ok so no spoilers. I’ll try.
We all know Jason knows now.
Without giving too much away this part of the story is painful to read.
So much hurt and anger and sadness.

These two getting closer and catching up with each others lives (which now I REALLY want to know more about! BTW)

There is some serious tension in this book. and then we get some very serious Sex scenes. Off the charts HAWT!

But at the end of the day Sammi/Julz has one thing in mind.


She has to follow through with her plans.

and there is more still to go. As well as Dornan.

As mentioned above in typical Lili fashion, she sucks you right in from page one of this dark and gritty, amazingly different story and you will not put it down! I smashed it one 3 hour sitting!  The perfect amount of everything. Clues and hints are thrown around. we still need a lot of answers and have more questions.

and then


Bomb drops. Last page.

Lili’s laughing and it’s see you in July suckers!

But honestly? it’s a perfect fucking thing to do as I know I will be there on release day waiting to get my fix.

The Gypsy Brothers series have become my addiction.

oh and….

Book 1 info Cup of Sugar:





Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along.

Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.

Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job.

One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.

But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up




It’d been a year and a half since fate—or more specifically, car trouble and bad weather—had brought Conn and Nia together. In that time, there’d been several occasions where the Lawler and Chambers families had mixed. Sara hadn’t attended. Not even Christmas dinner at her sister’s house. Sara’s family didn’t make excuses on her behalf, nor did they seem upset. Instead they affectionately tossed around terms such as “free-spirited”and “nonconformist.”

Well, the free-spirited nonconformist better walk through the church doors, stat.  Anybody who got in the way of his brother’s happiness, especially this weekend, would be answering to Curtis. Badge and handcuffs not required for that job.

“You didn’t bring a date for the wedding,”Conn said, interrupting Curtis’internal threats toward a woman he’d never met.

“Nah. With the wedding all the way up here, that would’ve meant spending an entire weekend together at the various family-bonding events. An invitation like that tends to send the ‘this is serious’message.”

Conn stretched his arms along the top of the church pew while nodding. “Gotcha.”

“Yeah.”Not that Curtis had anything against commitment. The right woman just hadn’t come along. Because he purposely kept busy with the wrong ones.

“Since you’re flying solo this weekend, I need a favor.”

“Spending tomorrow in a monkey suit isn’t favor enough? Especially after that overly friendly tailor at the tuxedo-rental place got a little too much enjoyment out of measuring my inseam?”

One of Conn’s patented grins took over his face. “Did you check the pockets yet? He might’ve slipped you his number.”

“Whatever, man.”He gave Conn a friendly shot to the ribs. “How you, the totally unavailable groom-to-be, got the hot Asian chick to measure you while I got stuck with the grabby-hands guy, I have no fucking idea.”

“Was she hot? I didn’t notice.”

Oh man, he was serious.  Love had put blinders on his brother. Big time.

“Ten out of ten,”Curtis said, shaking his head. “So, what’s the favor?”

Conn’s smile thinned. “Keep an eye on Sara. Make sure she doesn’t cause any trouble.”

“Babysitting detail.”


“Is she that bad?”

“I hope not,”Conn said as the church’s front door slammed and all heads turned toward the entryway.

Call him fucked-up, but one look at the dark-haired beauty who’d just strutted into the building, and Curtis kinda hoped Sara lived up to her troublemaker reputation.

From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Olivia Cunning

One Starry Night…

In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek who’d had a crush on her, but when he’d found the courage to ask her to Prom, she’d turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isn’t high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any way—every way—they can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?


New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.


New York Times bestselling authorCherrie Lynn gets it hot in here with SHAMELESS. It’s a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can’t get the man’s sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is…

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend’s little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam’s put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?


New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby brings you PLAYING WITH FIRE, a ménage novella. Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were “different”, but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?


From USA Today bestselling author, Lainey Reese comes Guarding Nadia.

When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards. It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.

Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service. They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard anyone, including the gorgeous erotic author.

Author: Ryan Michele

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: June 9, 2014





Casey Alexander grew up part of the Ravage Motorcycle family since the day she was abandoned by her mother and thrown into her father’s lap. Always seeing herself as an outsider, she spent her whole life trying to fit in, but never really succeeding. When she loses her beloved father, the utter aloneness engulfs her, leaving her searching for solace in the one man she’s always craved. Confessing her love for him only results in devastation when he pushes her away. Convinced she needs a fresh start, she leaves everything behind in order to mend her broken heart and begin building a future without him.

Gage Thomas (G.T.) Gavelson fell in love with his Angel when he was just a pint sized kid. Both beautiful and smart, he always felt she deserved so much better than him. Growing up beside her in the club only continued to test his will power, until one night, he gave into temptation. Realizing he couldn’t allow himself to hold her back from the life she deserved, he pushed her away, allowing her to believe she would never be enough for him. Letting her go had been the hardest thing he’d ever done. Even though he’d thought it’d been the right thing to do, not a day goes by that misery doesn’t consume him for it.

When a tragic shootout occurs, everything changes as once again their lives are intermingled. When you find your way back to the one person you are meant to be with, forgiveness should be easy. But sometimes, we hurt each other too much to ever be able to forgive.

Is their love strong enough to heal their pain?

About the Author


I’m a mom and a wife who works full time. I have a huge obsession with collecting paperbacks and reading. Becoming an author, wasn’t exactly what I set out to do, it just happened. I needed something to help me get rid of the feeling of being ‘just a mom’ or ‘just a wife’ that was consuming me and writing became that outlet. My book(s) cover some tough issues which are hard for some readers to digest. I am grateful for every single one of you who read my books.

Three Nights With a Rockstar

by Amber Lin & Shari Slade

Release Date: June 2, 2014

Click Here to add to Goodreads 



When Hailey crashes a Half-Life after party, she expects to find the bastard who knocked up her little sister. Instead she meets the sexy front-man who agrees to give her access to his crew if she gives him access to her body.


All Lock demands in return is three days of complete control over the Sunday School teacher. With a contract, because he’s been burned before. One misstep could send the band—and his tenuous sobriety—up in flames.


Hailey and Lock push each other’s limits… Against the penthouse window. Backstage. In the limo and on the elevator. But as the contract counts down, neither are ready for the party to end.

Shari Slade

Shari Slade is a snarky optimist. A would-be academic with big dreams and very little means. When she isn’t toiling away in the non-profit sector, she’s writing gritty stories about identity and people who make terrible choices in the name of love (or lust). Somehow, it all works out in the end. If she had a patronus it would be a platypus.

Hailey forced herself to stand still for his leisurely perusal. Even when he stood and stalked toward her, she managed to hold on to her dignity—whatever dregs she had left after donning these clothes and almost falling on her face. But his smile hit her like a blast of heat, blinding her, scalding her. He looked far too pleased with himself, like a man about to get everything he wanted. And her shaky insides warned she might just give it to him.

“What do you mean?” she asked, proud her voice didn’t quaver too much.

“You want to stay here while we’re in Chicago,” he said. “To stay here for three days, to blend in so that no one questions why you’re here. To ask questions, poke around.”

Yes, that was exactly what she wanted. So why did her nod feel like surrender? As if she’d agreed to his terms before she even knew them. But then maybe she did know what his terms would be. His eyes spoke the words his lips had yet to say. There were volumes of gold-flecked pages filled with all that sensual knowledge. They promised delight and, even better, a hard bite to the exchange. Where the men she had been with were a fresh spring breeze, he stood before her like the calm before the storm, his eyes darkening clouds.

“Can you…” She licked her lips. His gaze tracked the movement, making her feel hunted. “Can you help me?”

His expression softened. Just the slightest degree, but it was enough to slow the hammering of her heart. This was the same kind man she’d met in the lobby. Desire had given him a rough edge, turning his loping gait into a prowl, making his nostrils flare—scenting her. But he was still kind inside.

When he didn’t answer, she searched for whatever strength she might have found. You want… he’d said, listing her terms. Only his terms were left to be stated. A negotiation, then. But even as she thought the words, an image flashed through her mind, a gazelle caught from behind, the vicious beauty of her captor feasting in a National Geographic special.

“What do you want?” she whispered, and somehow the wall was at her back. He was at her front…crowding her…embracing her?

“You,” he snarled. “Under me. Over me. On your knees in front of me. I get full artistic license to your body for three days.”

His words pounded her like hail, leaving dents and then pooling in the hollows left behind. They drowned out the rest of the world and shook the floor. She began to shake too—but her gaze remained locked with his. The shaking was on the inside, fear and a strange longing warring inside her, a battle to the death. She stood frozen, caught in his sights and too terrified to run. Too curious to walk away.

He stepped back, sending a wash of crisp hotel air over her body. She sucked in a breath and immediately missed the earthy scent of him.

“And you,” he continued conversationally, “will have total access to play Nancy Drew in the hotel. That is, whenever I’m not using you.”

Her body lit up when he said the word using. It imploded on you, spoken with such self-assured possession. What was wrong with her that she wanted to be used? Maybe because she wanted to be free to enjoy sex, to really explore it, for the first time in her tame little life. Maybe because he would be the one using her, and he seemed like he would know just what to do with her.

This was a bad idea. For reasons that weren’t quite coming to her at the moment. But she knew it was bad. If she’d said it once, she’d said it a thousand times to her preschoolers: don’t make decisions when you’re angry. Though she wasn’t angry. She was concerned. And frustrated. And…

God, Chloe, why? After I worked so freaking hard so you could start college, why couldn’t you be more careful?

Okay, she might be angry.

She swallowed. So maybe this weekend could be for her too. She would find the baby’s father, but she’d also find something for herself.

With a deep breath, she struggled for levity. A lopsided tilt of her lips was all she could manage. “Where do I sign?” she joked.

His grin widened, revealing an even row of white teeth. The Cheshire cat had just such a smile. “I’m so glad you asked. I have blank copies of my contract in the side table. Right next to the lube.”

★★IRON SINNERS★★Happy Release Day – HJ BELLUS

Griff, aka Grizz, the ideal Iron Sinner, rides hard and dedicates his all to the club. 

A job needs done…he does it. 

Men idolize him. 

Women love him. 

Never shy and always up for a good time, Grizz finds himself jumping from mattress to mattress and digging grave after grave. You want to take a bullet? Cross the club. 

One night, rival MC, Devil’s Idol, do just that. Grizz and Animal are sent to straighten shit out while leaving no witnesses. What Grizz faces that night changes his life forever… 

Piper Jones is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The ruthless business woman, finds herself captive by the MC club. But she’s not one to go down without a fight. 

She slowly destroys Grizz, from his bad boy persona, to his ride or die motto. He should want nothing more than to do away with her with a single bullet. Instead, he finds himself giving his all just to be with her. 

Will Grizz be able to walk away from the one thing he swore he never wanted?



“What the fuck,” I growl. “Is this a prank?”
She just fucking ruined a whole stack of pancakes.
“It is one of my dirty, dark secrets, biker boy.”
“Call me boy one more time and I’ll beat your ass, Piper.”
“Just eat it. Please, just try it for me. Eat it.” 
“You do realize that you are begging me to ‘eat it’ while you sit in my boxers on my
counter covered in batter. I’ve never wanted to taste anything so fucking
“Then taste it. Go ahead.”
Piper grabs a fork and cuts off a huge chunk of pancakes covered in batter and syrup 
and raises it to my lips.
Closing my eyes, I can feel the pancakes push on my lips. “Baby, I wasn’t talking about
the pancakes.”
“Grizz,” she warns.
“Piper, just give me a taste and then I’ll eat any concoctions of yours.”
“Taste of this?” she asks, as she slides her hand down the front of my boxers into her.
Piper moves her hand up and down, throwing her head back and fucking herself with her
“Taste it,” she growls.
Opening my mouth, Piper places the warm gooey pancakes in my mouth. My cock threatens
to spring from my jeans as she continues to fuck herself right in front of me. Piper
stretches out a foot, brushes it against my cock, and lets out an evil giggle.
“Take another bite, Grizzy.”I scoop up another chunk of pancake and shovel it in my mouth, ignoring the fact
she just called me Grizzy. If my cock wasn’t so fucking hard, I would slap her
across the fucking face. I despise that fucking name.
“I’m hungry,” Piper whimpers as she continues banging her sweet pussy.I
lean forward, grab the back of her ass, and scoot her closer. I’m very careful
not to disturb the motion of her arm because Piper fucking herself is the
hottest thing I have ever seen. And trust me, I have seen and done it all. I take
another chunk of pancake with my fingers and feed her while she gets closer to
orgasm. She grabs the back of my head and slams it into her mouth. Fuck! We haven’t kissed like this since
our one and only fuck over a week ago. I taste every inch of her delicate
mouth. My tongue memorizes the feel of each and every one of her teeth, the top
of her mouth, and the insides of her lips. This time I cherish every fucking
second, knowing any day Mayor could call and give us the orders to cut her

I am just a simple country girl getting one story 

out of my head at a time. I was raised in small town, 

USA and still reside there with my husband and 

children. I am a huge country music fan and am 

inspired by it everyday. I live and love country life, 
and you will find those elements in my books. I also
adore strong and brave lead female characters, and
strive to be a courageous and independent woman in
everyday life. In my opinion, life is no fun without a
good sense of humor, sprinkles, cheese whiz, and
candy. It is the simple things that warm my heart.
