Stalked – Jamie Begley

40251512. sy475
There are some days it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed.

My girlfriend kicked me out. Then, even my dog didn’t want me, so he ran away. My boss fired me when I called to let him know I was going to be late. And to put the cherry on top of the crap sundae, I accidentally doused a woman in water who had more followers than brain cells.

As if becoming one of the most hated men in Queen City wasn’t bad enough, some lunatic was stalking the popular life coach I had soaked. The fucker should be running from Zoey, not watching, especially with me protecting her. Some fuckers must learn the hard way, and I’m going to be the one to teach him. You don’t mess with anyone who belongs to a Predator.

It was a perfect day … until I met Stump.

I found a new friend, reached half a million followers, and was on the brink of putting my past behind me when the crazy biker accused me of stealing his dog. To make matters worse, he then blamed me for people hating on him. He did that with no help from me. I don’t blame the dog for running away. I would, too, if I belonged to him.

My skills as a life coach don’t work on him. I might not be able to change the irritating Predator, but I’m not above using him to catch the one who wants me dead.

This work of fiction is intended for mature audiences only. All sexually active characters portrayed in this ebook are eighteen years of age or older. Please do not buy if strong sexual situations, multiple partners, violence, child abuse, and explicit language offends you.

So I started this by reading Razer’s RideViper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex PistonTeasedTaintedShade’s FallKingCash’s FightFat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. Winter’s Touch, Train’s Clash, Standing His Ground, Crazy Bitch, Rider’s Revenge and now Stalked. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.

This will contain spoilers.

So I think compared to some of the other novel in this series this one is a little different. At least to me it felt a little different. We start the story with Zoey writing letters to her mum and that is a theme all the way through this book and I really liked the added extra of those letters it gave so much about her past and her family and it becomes a big part later on in the book. The letters are heartbreaking and they hit you in the feels that’s for sure.

So when we meet Zoey I knew she was going to be a ride. I felt it straight away I knew that she was going to cause a stir and yes she did. The moment she saw that dog we all knew she was going to fall in love with him and she did.

I couldn’t stop laughing at one point in this novel and it’s at the beginning so Hannibal is a puppy from one of Grace’s dogs and when the puppy goes missing, do they tell Grace? Nope. They hide it and when she finds out boy is she mad. But I love her reaction to it and how mad she is at the men for not telling her about the missing supper.

I love how attached Hannibal gets to Zoey but it’s also hilarious how mad Stump gets about it. Especially as Hannibal gets slightly depressed because he misses Zoey. I just think that’s so cute and dogs are just the purest.

Stump and Max made me laugh so many times through this book they are both hilarious and I love it. Especially after Max accidentally lets Stump go again and he ends up you guessed it straight back with Zoey.

So we have the plot of this book of a stalker who we begin to believe is after Zoey but over the course we learn he’s not after Zoey he’s trying to warn her to stay away from Ginny, which I do believe this will work it’s way into Ginny and Gavin’s story when the trilogy is finally released. In regards to the stalker storyline it is very much left unfinished and you don’t get to know who the stalker is in fact.

I really liked the chemistry between Stump and Zoey especially because Zoey was oblivious to the way Stump felt about her and she barely had any self esteem and my heart broke for her. She truly believed that nobody could love her so when Stump told her he loved her god my heart broke because she still didn’t feel like she could be loved. That all stems from her daddy issues.

So we learn more about Zoey’s family and that her father is in fact a conman who swindled many women out of their money and at times used Zoey as bait for new women. (Sounds like an episode of Criminal Minds. I remember that episode so well.) Zoey has been through a lot when Zoey’s dad’s wife finally clicks on that he’s stealing her money and her families. He decides to run only this time Zoey has a baby sister. Her dad kills the wife and the baby sister and Zoey is that distraught she kills her dad. Like could you imagine going through all that it would wow, you can understand why the girl has issues. Or why she lives with barely any stuff which Stump knocks the reason on the head pretty quick.

Greer appears in this book! I love Greer. Anyway I thought it was hilarious that he tries to set Zoey up with Dustin. We also get to see just how powerful Greer is when he maybe heals Cole (we don’t get to find out if it works or not until Dustin’s book). I think in that scene with The Predators and some of the members of The Last Riders standing around lending help to Greer as he tries to heal Cole. I just think that it’s so powerful. I also love that Zoey figured it out that Greer could heal before she even saw the healing. She nails Greer on the head immediately.

So we have more of a setup for Ginny and I still can’t wait for her books.

So the big bombshell at the end of this book is that Zoey’s dad wasn’t actually her father. No. Zoey was kidnapped as a baby and her parents have been looking for her ever since. Stump manages to find the address and rather going through the authorities, Zoey decides to leave all her letters at their door and tell them if they want to know her to meet at the park. And oh my god that scene I was sobbing like a baby. It hit me in the feels and I was destroyed.

Livin’ on the Edge – Winter Travers

It was just supposed to be one drunken night between Zephyr and Lynn.
One. Night.

Except Zephyr and Lynn can’t seem to stay away from each other. 

With the club moving in a new direction, Zephyr needs to focus on club business.
Club business, that if they aren’t careful, could get more people killed.

Can Zephyr help Lynn balance on the edge of her family drama, and also focus on his own responsibilities to the club? 

Everyone knows you don’t mess with the Kings of Vengenace, but sometimes people need reminding.

I’d like to thank Winter Travers for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So this is book 6 in the Kings of Vengeance it is better read in order: Drop a Gear and Disappear, Lean Into It, Knees in the Breeze, Midnight Wreckage and Thrill Seeker. As I say better read in order due to the fact that each book has a overarching plot throughout each book.

So the book starts off straight from Lynn waking up in the clubhouse from her one night stand with Zephyr. She tries to rush away straight away but unlucky for her Zephyr refuses to leave her alone. Lynn goes through a lot she tries to help everyone and stretches herself so thin that she doesn’t leave much time for herself.

Zephyr instantly sets his sights on Lynn and he wants to do everything he can to try and relieve some of the pressure that Lynn deals with and tries to make her life a bit easier and taking some of the stress.

I loved Lynn and Zephyr together, their whole relationship was so cute I loved the bond that they had together and how supportive Zephyr was. I also loved that he made her set boundaries when it came to her patients and was making her take time for herself. I just loved the connection that both of these characters had. I also loved that when there was an argument or disagreement that they spoke about it like adults rather than letting it spill into something it’s not so I loved that.

This book did a great thing of adding to the overall plot, I’m obviously not going to say what happened because spoilers. But it did a great job at adding to it.

Honourable mentions for scenes as always with this book and no spoilers.

My favourite moment: When the boys scare Core in the basement with the casket oh my god I could have died laughing it was hilarious and so great.

My 2nd favourite honourable scene is of course book club makes me laugh all the time. I love the girls. Just love it.

Let me just say that I cannot wait for Brick’s book because the ending of this book got me so hyped. Like I need to know everything about him and Detective Kaye. So I need it now. Like asap give me the next book please and thank you…

Overall really enjoyed the book and can’t wait to see what Winter Travers does next!

Rider’s Revenge – Jamie Begley

36498884. sy475
Revenge is a seven-letter word that isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a word for those who have been wronged.

Jo Turner has been waiting five, long years to finally turn revenge into vengeance. Using Rider, the pretty-faced manwhore, is simply the price she is willing to pay to satiate her desire for revenge. Little does she know, she makes herself a target from the one thing Rider has sworn to give his life to protect—The Last Riders.
When you wake the soldier, be prepared for the consequences.
Rider is going to teach her a hard lesson: revenge is a double-edged sword … and it always cuts both ways. 

So I started this by reading Razer’s RideViper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex PistonTeasedTaintedShade’s FallKingCash’s FightFat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. Winter’s Touch, Train’s Clash, Standing His Ground, Crazy Bitch and now Rider’s Revenge. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.

This will contain spoilers.

So Rider’s book is one I was looking forward to so much and honestly I felt really let down by it all. I expected more from Rider’s books he’s always been a really big part of all the other novels so I expected his to be amazing and fabulous and it just wasn’t and it really disappointed me. I wish we had discovered the real Rider and not the one that puts on a front for every different person. He deserved better.

I love me some Last Riders revenge and do our boys know how to dish it out good. Rider fighting is extremely hot and damn all the men fighting are hot I just clearly have no self control when it comes to these man. So when Gavin rocked up I was like yesss my baby back home where he belongs. The way he deals with Crash I think says everything about who Gavin is about a person, if someone put you in the circumstances that Gavin was put in and you had the chance to do whatever you want to them and you don’t take that opportunity I think that says a lot. Gavin instead of making Crash suffer just snaps his neck and kills him.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Shade is legit Cupid and he does his job amazingly of playing Cupid. I am also very amused that all the married men are trying to get Rider married so they leave their women alone I find hilarious. The reactions to Rider being able to fool the women is hilarious and it amuses me to no end.

So we found out in another book I believe that Jo was raped in school by Curt Dawkins and when Jo was telling Rider about her ordeal god it broke my heart slightly.

Although these two didn’t have the instant chemistry I really did like how it grew and how their relationship bonded especially when Jo got sick. Rider took care of her and Train plowed the snow for her because she was too poorly. Not only that Rider fixed everything in her house and I loved that he just wanted to take care of her and the issues and it was cute.

I really like that Jo told Rider the truth about what Aly was planning and that Jo was part of it and she didn’t want to be but Aly wouldn’t let her out of it. I was glad when she finally told the truth.

Jo and Rider bonding over the bikes and cars, I love that we finally see a woman in these novels that have interests in the car and bikes. Jo and Jewell fighting was absolutely hilarious. I also loved how Jo and Gavin talked like they did I thought it was a nice touch especially how frustrated Rider is because Gavin isn’t really talking to him.

So we get to see Rider watching the security cameras and it is hilarious when Jo is with him when they are watching them. I also thought it was very amusing that the men are still provoking Lucky and Shade had to explain to Jo why when Shade called in his favour for Rider to take the beating this month. True friendship right there.

So it all got very serious very fast. Aly attacking everyone. What I loved in this was Rider yelling at Gavin to save his woman it wasn’t something I was expecting and I love that it’s the way that Rider finally gets through to Gavin and it’s for him to save her woman. I just loved it in that moment because they all knew that Gavin would come through for them.

So one of my favourite things in The Last Riders is how much all the members love to watch the men taking shit from the women but hate when it happens to them it is hilarious.

Rider’s jealousy is very surprising, considering he shares so much in the other books and doesn’t want to share Jo I found very surprising also kind of out of character for the man that we knew in all of the other books.

Again some of those epilogues we didn’t need, we didn’t need to know that Rider dies like I would have been happy without that! Like your girl here didn’t need to know that. It happens quite a bit that I just forget that the last epilogues exist because it’s just too much!

So again my main feeling about this was very disappointed but it was okay I still enjoyed it I just wish he had better.

Crazy Bitch – Jamie Begley

36119169. sy475
My mother used to have a saying for everything.

“You can’t be pretty and lucky.”

She wasn’t pretty or lucky.

“You have to kiss a lot of toads before you find your Prince Charming.”

I kissed too many of those. Sorry, but Prince Charming isn’t in Hicktown, Kentucky.

“The good ones go to Heaven; the bad ones go to Hell.”

Guess I’m going to Hell.

“Hell is paved with good intentions.”

Surprisingly, that one is true. Why? Because …

I intended to stay away from Calder Riggs.

I intended not to fall in love with him.

I intended to find a man who wasn’t a loser or a joker.

Oh well, I’ve never been afraid of Hell, anyway.

That’s why I’m Crazy Bitch! 

So I started this by reading Razer’s RideViper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex PistonTeasedTaintedShade’s FallKingCash’s FightFat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. Winter’s Touch, Train’s Clash, Standing His Ground and now Crazy Bitch. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.

This will contain Spoilers.

So this one is Crazy Bitch and Calder’s story and man was this a ride. I loved Calder and I thought it was very interesting that we had an aspect of how he felt with his drugs and the process of recovering from all that I thought having that in the novel was very interesting and I really enjoyed that. We had hints about Calder and Crazy bitch from the other novels so I was intrigued about how it would turn out in this and damn I was not disappointed.

I love how protective Shade is of Lily, it was hilarious that he knocked Calder out after Lily went after Crazy Bitch, so she doesn’t see that side and she doesn’t scold him or get annoyed him. Shade just makes me laugh when it comes to Lily.

We see some of Greer in this book and oh my god he creases me “I wasn’t about to let her go to that movie. I don’t want her getting any ideas. You dumbasses should take a lesson from me.” I love that number one Greer is brave enough to say that to The Last Riders and The Blue Horseman and The Destructors (I think that was the name I may have forgotten it). I really like that they asked Greer to hide the jackets for them because you just know the man was going to do a good job with that and he wouldn’t tell any of them anything. So I really liked that. The three clubs instead of fighting with each other decide to bet each of their jackets and a bike and whoever finds them gets to keep them, so that’s where Greer comes into help hide them. They pair off and Crazy Bitch gets stuck with Calder.

So we see more of Gavin in this book and this is one of the main reasons of this book and I love that we get to see Gavin and Calder building a relationship whilst Gavin is in rehab and I think it’s extra special because we see Calder helping him through it and not lying to him about it that it will get better. I just loved that Calder was pure honest with Gavin through the process and it was definitely one of my favourite things about this book.

Crazy Bitch and Calder doing the quests was so cute and I loved the moments that they had with each other and I liked that this is where they begin to rebuild their relationship and begin to be honest with each other.

The reaction to the cat. I feel sorry for this cat because all throughout the biker bitches books everyone hates the poor cat. I mean I don’t blame them it sounds like a bit of pain but the way they all react to the cat is hilarious even more so because Calder is afraid of it. Also the fact everyone tries as much as possible to get rid of the cat Cade for one it’s like a conspiracy to try and getting rid of the cat.

I liked that Calder finally told Crazy Bitch why it took so long for him to approach her and talk about the past and that he didn’t want to approach it because he was ashamed about what he did. I really like that they cleared the air about that.

Calder being jealous is everything and honestly it’s very cute.

So we found out back in Sex Piston’s book that little Star is not actually Stud’s and Calder is the dad to little Star. Calder knows this too. I love the relationship that Calder has with Star but also that he doesn’t think he’s worthy to be known as her father because Stud did such a good job when he couldn’t. He also doesn’t want to approach the subject of Star at least until Crazy Bitch tells him to talk to Stud because Star deserves to know and honestly the relationship that Star and Calder had was so cute and it made my heart melt. It didn’t take much for Crazy Bitch to figure out that Star is Calder’s daughter.

So there is a scene in this book that absolutely killed me and we discover that The Last Riders are creating a sex toy. Crazy Bitch decides to try it on Calder it’s a vibrator kind of thing. Only she didn’t read the instructions. And oh my god just this scene I was laughing so much. As you can imagine their was some injury and it was so funny.

Calder and Crazy Bitch their lines are so cute to each other!

What I did think was very romantic was Calder willing to ride bitch for Crazy Bitch which if you’ve read many MC books you know the men have a real issue about riding bitch but it was so cute and sweet.

Wow Crazy Bitch getting arrested. Now I knew that was something more to the situation on top of her being arrested and boy was I right because hey Lucky. So we discover that Crazy Bitch is an informant wasn’t expecting that and in the process of all this Calder has been kidnapped and Lucky is nearly killed. So we have all three clubs working together to find Calder and figure out who tried to kill Lucky. I do love that all the clubs came together to help each other like they are fabulous that is for sure. I also love the interaction between Shade and Crazy Bitch during this. We see Crazy Bitch going through hell when they’re trying to find Calder and god it hit in the feels.

I hate Candi not only for what she did to Star back in Stud’s book but for her still begging and we find out that Candi had him kidnapped and pumped him full of drugs making him relapse. I felt so bad for Calder being forced to the drugs again and when he’s being wheeled out he still wants Crazy Bitch and honestly my heart.

Crazy Bitch and Stud decide that it’s best for Calder to go back to rehab, he ends up at the same Rehab as Gavin and this is where my heart really did destroy. Whilst Gavin is going through what he is going through he’s still there to support Calder and hold his hand and it really hit. Like right there in that moment is what brotherhood stands for and it was perfect. I love that they were just there for each other they knew what each other was going through in that moment and wanted to help each other.

So after a few months Calder is allowed to go home from Rehab but before he does go home him and Crazy Bitch discover that Gavin has the package and instead of Crazy Bitch and Calder taking it they decide that it’s for Gavin that he has Viper, Stud and Calder’s jackets as well as the bikes and that they have his back and it’s time for him to come home. Honestly that scene hit in the feels. So much. Like the bond between Gavin and Calder is the one thing that lasts in my memory for this book.

It was a really beautiful ending throughout this book Star has been doing a dance for Stud’s birthday and when she performs she dedicates it to both her dads and it’s just so cute that she includes Calder as her dad too and it was a beautiful ending.

Thrill Seeker – Winter Travers

56023085. sy475
Three years ago my thrill seeking woman walked out of my life and didn’t even bother to give me a glance goodbye.

The Kings of Vengeance became my family at a time when I had nothing but a bottle of whiskey and fading memories of a woman I thought I would spend the rest of my life with.

Deedra was always looking for the next lead, the next exciting story to catapult her into news anchor stardom. No matter the sacrifice.

She never thought her ambitious ways would land her smack dab in the middle of the headlines.

Now the Kings of Vengeance and I have to save her before her thrill seeking ways land her six feet under. 

I’d like to thank Enticing Journey for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I love Winter Travers when it comes to MC she is one of my favourite authors. I loved her Fallen Lords series and when that ended I was sad but then I started this one and got over it. I loved all the other books and have reviews for them. They are: Drop a Gear and DisappearLean Into ItKnees in the Breeze and Midnight Wreckage and I loved them all. So when it comes to Winter Travers my expectations are high and she does not disappoint.

Thrill Seeker follows Point and his estranged wife Deedra as for the first time in three years they are thrown together and can’t stop bumping into each other since Midnight Wreckage when she was reporting on Gunner’s story. I think I only have one complaint and that is that this actually wasn’t angsty enough for me. I wanted more angst but it was still good nevertheless.

Deedra is described many times through this as cold and a bitch but I think as soon as Point starts pushing his way back into her life wanting to know why she left she begins to open up to him and honestly I loved the moment she was finally honest with him and why she didn’t stay. It was a shit reason on her part but I’m glad that she told him the truth.

Point I loved him in the other novels and let me tell you he didn’t disappoint. I loved him in this book and learning more about his past and how he and Deedra got together but also broke up. Although our boy instead of dealing with his issues for the first few chapter just drank his problems away which you know sometimes mood. He soon got his butt into gear to go and get his woman.

I really liked them they were cute together and they definitely knew how to push each other’s buttons which also sometimes resulted in some grown up adult time. Which Winter Travers really does know how to write her sex scenes.

I also loved seeing all the other characters they are just a big family and I love it, like they just it’s like being at home and you could just imagine being there with them and know its true and I love it. Honestly it’s one of the reasons why I still read her books because all the characters play and important part

As always with her books I have a few honourable scenes in this that deserved to be mentioned these aren’t spoiling anything either so you don’t have to worry about that.

The first mention is the scene where they go to the shelter and it’s the lead up to the way the girls act and then Point’s attitude it had me creasing I couldn’t stop chuckling.

The second one and by far the best where I had to put the book down because I was laughing way too much and when I reread the scene I was still laughing. I could just imagine how it would be in real life and I think that’s what I loved. The girls are all drunk and there is some terrible jokes and honestly I was in a fit of giggles if you’ve read this book you know exactly what I mean.

So in terms of the plot we have a set up in this book which I believe will continue in the next book and honestly it’s going to be so good! Also Brick comes out of prison soon and if we don’t get his book with detective Kaye I will be sad about that.

Corrupted – Scarlett Holloway

In the Outlaw Underworld, Loyalty is everything.

When Colt Younger started as a prospect for the Devil’s SixGuns motorcycle club, he never expected to be put in his place by Amethyst James or be stunned by her beauty. Colt’s past in the military and special training catches the eye of the president, who just happens to be her father, quickly climbs the ranks to see things some prospects never get to.

Amethyst had a strict code that she follows: Don’t Date Club. That rule got thrown out the window the moment she met the club’s newest prospect, Colt. He was the embodiment of perfection, yet still rough around the edges. Everything her father did not want her dating.

Just as their relationship starts heating up and club business begins reaching new heights, loyalties are put to the test─sometimes even the best of people can be CORRUPTED.

WARNING: There are some spots in this book that may be troublesome to some readers. If you find yourself disturbed by its content please put it down until you can pick it back up. Some of this book contains graphic violence and texts pertaining to graphic violence. Read at your own risk.

From the start of this book I knew it was going to end in heartbreak and damn this book sent me in a spin only at the end really. I struggled to get into the start of this book I think it was possibly due to the fact that I couldn’t connect with the characters. I liked the characters though, just not connect with them.

I love the connection between Amy and Colt. Amy was an interesting character she was the president’s daughter, and was well aquatinted with club life. She was sassy and strong yet she was also willing to trust Colt and fall in love with him easier enough.

Colt he was interesting, being that he was undercover cop and was pretending to be part of the club life, it was interesting watching him prove himself whilst trying to keep his hands clean. I loved the connection he felt with Amy.

I loved Stone and Xavier (Romeo), it made me chuckle so much that they were protective over Amy, they could do some stuff but Amy was not allowed. I also love the friendship that Romeo and Colt developed throughout the novel.

I really did not like Diablo what an asshole, Colt should have punched him sooner than waiting until the middle of this book every time he appeared I just wanted to punch him.

The plot was interesting, and it kept me reading, the end was what changed my view of this book being a 1 star to higher. The ending was amazing and intense. I did not expect the twist that happened, it was mind blowing. I didn’t expect the person who went to the police about the club to be who it was. (Me trying to tell you spoilers.) So the ending was the thing that changed this book for me.

The writing was really good and I can’t wait to read the next one!

Kingdom’s Reign – Monique Moreau

54782005. sy475
A grieving biker. A brokenhearted woman. Can love heal their wounds?

Since the death of his patch brother, Kingdom has felt nothing but rage and loss. Until, he meets Sage on a trip to a tattoo shop to get fresh ink for his fallen brother. She’s sexy. Brilliant. And exactly the kind of challenge that makes him ache. If asked whether he deserved her love, Kingdom’s straight-up answer would be hell no. But, nothing will stop him from taking what’s his. Not even her.

Being a no-nonsense defense attorney, the second Sage caught her fiancé cheating she’d swore off men. While breaking that rule for a tatted up member of an MC seems like a monumentally bad idea, she can’t fight her attraction to Kingdom. When he invites her on a ride, she finds herself wanting so much more. Sage yearns to indulge in one of the sexiest and most dangerous men she’s met but fears risking her battered heart.

Can the unlikely pair help each other move on from the wounds of the past? Or will club tensions with a rival MC find a way to use their weaknesses against them?

I’d like to thank L Woods Pr for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So this is a debut book for this author and I love my MC books so when I saw the sign up, I signed up because we know I love my MC books. And I’m always excited to find new books to read. So I am not going to lie I did have mixed feelings in this book like some of the stuff that happened I was like that’s not okay. And I’ll go into that.

Sage is someone you don’t expect her to be she’s a lawyer and sometimes moonlights in the tattoo shop when they need staff. She is very feisty and will try to always fight back and argue and stand up for herself and I love it. She was also feeling very broken after being cheated on by her ex and he wouldn’t touch her and it honestly broke my heart when I was reading those moments.

Kingdom he was a feisty argumentative asshole. I think that’s the best way to describe him. He’s very Alpha, it’s my way or no way and we see him change through this book to become a little more accepting of what other people want. We see a very real and sensitive side to him when it comes to his feeling with his friends, at his very core he is a loyal, protective man.

From the beginning of this book it is very interesting and the meeting between Sage and Kingdom, I love that we see instantly that they both have an effect on each other. I love the idea that Sage gave Kingdom for his tattoo to honour Chopper. I loved the connection that these two had with each other especially when they were lets say getting to know each other at first. I could definitely tell the chemistry between them. I have to admit I was not a fan of the bossing around so much before they got together like I get it bikers. But I prefer them when they are actually in the relationship before getting hella bossy.

I really like the friendships in this book especially between Sage and Camilla like they got each other’s back and I love it. I especially love Greta (who I believe the next book is about) and I cannot wait. I just love how they all supported each other and it was no bitchiness like just proper good friendships and I love it.

So one thing I really did not like in this book is Kingdom makes an impression of Sage’s keys. Now I don’t care about anything but that is a different level of violation, if he held off I’m pretty sure she would have gave him a key. But nope I’m sorry I can’t get with him making an impression of her key that’s just all sorts of wrong and if I’m honest this lost a whole star for me. Just not okay. I don’t really know why someone would think that’s okay, I don’t care if worst things have happened in the book (and I’ve read much worse) but the key thing is just different level that I cannot get with. It’s just no.

Other than that I really loved reading this book and the relationship between Kingdom and Sage and I will definitely be reading the sequel (hopefully no dodgy shit like that).

Midnight Wreckage – Winter Travers

54561405. sy475
Don’t mess with the Kings of Vengeance…I may not have been raised on the right side of the tracks, but there are two things in life you never mess with: women and children.With the world of the Kings going crazy, the overwhelming urge to keep Queenie safe is just as strong as the need to find Gunner.Anyone who threatens the Kings or what I’ve claimed as my own better pray I never find them.Vengeance is coming

I’d like to thank Enticing Journey for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I love Winter Travers when it comes to MC she is one of my favourite authors. I loved her Fallen Lords series and when that ended I was sad but then I started this one and got over it. I loved all the other books and have reviews for them. They are: Drop a Gear and Disappear, Lean Into It and Knees in the Breeze and loved them so I had high expectations for this one especially as I had come to love Queenie and Sledge in the previous books.

This book continued right where Knees in the Breeze ends, Queenie has been shot and Gunner has been kidnapped. Right from the beginning of this novel the stakes are high and it really is all the way throughout this novel. I love how information is discovered in the novel, we don’t know anything until the characters know it and I love it. So many times during reading this I was shocked like I did not expect the twist and turns that were thrown at me.

Winter Travers knows how to write her series wanting to keep you reading on. I love how she writes the characters and wants you to just be involved with the family and be in that world. I love it. She does write fantastic characters and world and plot.

I loved getting more information about Queenie and how she came to have baby Gunner but also about her relationship with Duchess, her sister and Gunner’s mother, Queenie was a special kind of person to deal with the shit Duchess put her through everytime she relapsed. Then when she thought she was finally clean but only to find her dead and having to look after a baby that she was not prepared for. She was dealing with so much shit and we see her dealing with some of it when she’s trying to find information on whose Gunner’s dad is.

I loved the relationship between Sledge and Queenie we saw it growing in the other books but we saw a firm foundation with them. From the moment Queenie is at the hospital and comes home Sledge is by her side. I loved their relationship it was so cute and I just loved the chemistry between them the sexual tension throughout this book when they finally make their move is on point.

One of my favourite scenes in this book is when Queenie is helping Sledge with his washing and they are in the laundry room. They begin to get steamy and they almost start to get freaky that is until Kimber walks in on them! And then screams which gets Fancy running in and it is hilarious scene, definitely one of my favourite scenes.

As always when the women are involved church becomes a shit show, it’s hilarious to watch Quinn get so frustrated with the girls when it comes to church or them not being able to be quiet when they need to. It’s so funny.

So we have a few new additions to this lovely cast of characters and that is Lynn and Robyn. I’m really hoping we get books with them two in it because man they are interesting. Speaking of books we have a detective Kaye helping them find Gunner and it is revealed she has history with Brick an MC member that is in prison and she put him there, like I’m going to need that book please and thank you because I need to know the details. I need their book.

I am also really looking forward to the next book which is Point. It leaves on a great cliffhanger and I need the next one.

So the only thing I wish I saw more of in this book was Sledge and Queenie and Gunner being a family and a couple we get a little bit at the end but not enough for me. I just want more.

Train’s Clash – Jamie Begley

28821417. sy475
Beware of what you wish for; it might just come true.

Train swore never to let a woman get under his skin unless it meant forever, and forever only meant belonging to The Last Riders. He had believed his one brief sexual encounter with Killyama was a hit it and quit it. Instead, her green eyes haunted his memories. Then when he tried to convince the woman he was serious as his “more the merrier” lifestyle became a painful reminder of the life he lived, Killyama used his own club against him to keep him from what he wanted.

Killyama was holding out for a man who could offer her forever, and Train wasn’t the forever kind of man. He was a Mr. Here and Now; the wicked warrior in her dreams. He might be a walking, talking sex machine, but she needed more than that. So, until he proved she was the only one sharing his bed, the only part of her body he was going to see was her ass walking away.

So I started this by reading Razer’s RideViper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex PistonTeasedTaintedShade’s FallKingCash’s FightFat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. Winter’s Touch and now Train’s Clash. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.

This will contain spoilers.

So this book focus on Killyama and Train, we saw them hook up once and since then we’ve had Killyama slagging Train off at every chance yet being one heck of a bitch when she gets jealous over them. So even before they’re book began it was highly anticipated at least for me it was and damn did this book deliver.

So Killyama is a hard ass and we learn that her nickname came from her own mother which I think is also hilarious I really love her name Rae. So Killyama works as a bounty hunter with Hammer and Jonas and I loved that dynamic that was a different one all together.

Train is of course one of the women’s favourites and he knew it and used it to his advantage quite a lot. I love that despite Killyama and the biker bitches having the reputation they do among the men he still wanted to date her and boy was this sucker a ride. Train has one rule though, he doesn’t like liars.

So we get to see the first time they are together and damn it was good. Train really does put his foot into it though after they finish having sex for the first time and like any sane women Killyama kicks off which is hilarious. Oh my god though Train and Killyama’s first ride was much better than it was ever let off in the other books. Legit chills when Killyama and Train have sex though, it’s written so well. Jamie knows how to write her sex scenes. The chemistry between her and Train is mother fucking hot, like it just comes off the page between them.

I felt bad for Killyama because she loves Train and even knowing she loves him she agrees to keep it casual which almost kills her because she just wants him anyway she can have him.

I was surprised as hell when Killyama collected in on her marker and it was to take Sasha back to Ohio and turn her in and damn did that kick up one hell of an argument between them all. It’s surprising we learnt that Killyama did it to protect Sex Piston and Diamond because she overheard them talking about Sasha’s issue with the police. We also learn that whilst Killyama takes her back she also helps her but she doesn’t want any of The Last Riders to know and works with Shade in secret. Damn that was one dangerous mission because Killyama ends up in hospital. Of course Shade knows better and follows her to the hospital and then of course calls Train although they all pretend to not know that Killyama actually helped Sasha. Of course Train forgives Killyama.

Killyama with kids is really cute and adorable.

I love Killyama’s mum, Peyton was a great addition and she even pops up in another book and I love that we get much more look at Killyama and her family. I also love that Train is willing to suck up and do whatever Killyama wants and helps at her mum’s house.

The story of Train’s family wow I understand now how much he hates liars, his father beating them and being drunk. And then when they finally left and started to be normal he went into the military and is second year he found out from his sister that his mother was seeing there father and then a week later he was staring at his mother and sister’s grave and man it hits in the feels. Of course he killed his father not that anyone could prove it.

Oh my god Killyama’s reaction to Rachel and the girls sharing with the men hilarious I love it one of my favourite scenes. Wow what a fucking scene when all the women find out. Damn son. Like everything kicks off and it’s brilliant, the women are mad and the men aren’t even sure what to do. Hilarious one of the many scenes that stand out for me in this book.

We discover that Train’s replacement for her is Rider and we get a nice little scene with Rider, Train and Killyama and damn it is hot. Although Rider doesn’t join them this time and just watches the whole scene it’s amazing.

So Killyama works at the factory for a day, she has an ulterior motive and she is then caught breaking in to something at the factory and she refuses to tell them why. All the way through this I was screaming at her to tell Train the truth.

Train ends it with her but knows it’s out of character for her and goes to see her mum Peyton and they have a nice little chat and oh my god I could not cope with it. The way Rae was shunned by her father and why she sends gifts secretly breaks my heart. I’m glad Train went to discover why rather than just brushing it over.

The truth we were hit with and damn it was bad. Train and Shade are called to the warehouse near The Destructors clubhouse and we discover why Killyama did what she did. When bounty hunting they found a laptop with a video on and it was Gavin. The same Gavin they thought was dead after Memphis killed him. We discover that in fact Gavin is alive and has been kept by the Road Demons and has been forced drugs and been forced to do anything imaginable. The pain that Shade and Train go through when they discover that he’s alive is a lot and damn it broke my heart.

The mission was really cool. It was written amazing. I liked that Killyama made a bond with Gavin and the state he was in broke my heart.

But what broke my heart even more was The Last Riders’ reactions when they hear Gavin is alive and when they see the condition he is in and my god it was soul destroying. As they arrive Train and Shade begin to tell of Memphis and Crash’s deception and it all kicks off a lot of fighting.

The moment Viper and Ton see Gavin again and even Winter I sobbed along with this book.

So Train works on winning Killyama back and he manages it and on Rider’s birthday party we learn it’s also a celebration for Killyama bringing Gavin home and oh my god. It’s emotional The Last Riders give her a dozen roses like Gavin wanted along with some other things and we learn that Killyama got a vote from every single member from The Last Riders. Stud and Viper agreed that she’s just too much for one club to handle and becomes a part of both of them. It’s so emotional.

This story was a ride. I loved Killyama and Train’s story it was amazing and beautiful and it was so them. I love it so much. This is definetley one book that stands out to me when I think of Jamie Begley.

Winter’s Touch – Jamie Begley

30622123. sy475
As president of The Last Riders, Viper’s only fear was losing his wife. After all, he had almost lost her once before.

As wife to the president, Winter lived in fear every day: fear that a club enemy would take Viper from her, fear that one of the club women would tempt him to stray, fear that she wasn’t enough of a woman for him. One thing Winter didn’t fear was risking everything to carry her husband’s child, even her health, yet Viper refused to take the chance.

Losing hope, Winter made one last ditch effort, determined to make Viper realize that some things were worth fighting for besides the club.

So I started this by reading Razer’s RideViper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex PistonTeasedTaintedShade’s FallKingCash’s FightFat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. And now Winter’s Touch I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way!

There will be spoilers.

So we are back with Winter and Viper I loved their story in Viper’s book and was so happy to be back with them and it starts with a bang. Literally. A bang. Winter and Viper having sex with Train licking Winter out and having Moon and Sasha watching whilst those two fucked. You know so whatever you want about Jamie’s story but damn the woman knows how to write sex scenes and she is bloody fantastic at it.

So through this book we see Winter struggling with the fact that Viper won’t get her pregnant because of the injuries she sustained when she was attacked. And god Winter broke my heart so much through this and her wanting a baby was a major issue that effected her and Viper’s relationship. It was hard for her especially as she was seeing all the other women pregnant.

I also liked how it showed the other side how Viper felt not being able to give Winter the baby she wants because he’s too afraid of loosing her and it was nice to see that side of it too.

Half of Winter and Viper’s problems could have been solved by talking and having an honest conversation especially over Winter’s jealousy with Sasha. But also Sasha should have not made Winter try and hate her because through all of that I was just rolling my eyes because Sasha did not set a good start with anyone.

So one thing that did make me smile was this idea of the replacements that all of the men have chosen one of the other men to be their replacement if anything would happen to them. This becomes a big thing in the next book which is hilarious. I love how Viper chose Train for her and I love that.

So we get a surprise that Winter is pregnant I was so happy for her until you know she realised that Viper would be mad about her being pregnant. When Viper tells her it is not the reaction that I expected, he flips out and walks out she soon finds him at Gavin’s grave where Winter finally gets through Viper. Once he’s over it initially he’s overjoyed with Winter being pregnant and I do love how happy he is eventually although the worry is still there.

So if you’ve read Fat Louise’s story and remember way back when Raul who was Bailey’s husband, there was a stint where the Mexico cartel was brought down and we see in Predator that Jackal goes after him after he blows up the Predators clubhouse, we get a scene in this book where we see Raul come after Winter and Viper and terrifyingly Winter begins to go into labour. We see Killyama kicking some bloody ass during this and I love for Killyama I love her. Sex Piston is by her side as she is bleeding out. Raul is killed and Winter is rushed to hospital.

We discover that Winter gave birth to a little girl who Viper falls in love with the moment he sees her and oh my god it was so bloody cute. Viper names her Aisha. My heart melted when it came to a certain scene in this book so for context. We know that Rachel can heal people as she did Cash and Mag, and then in Tate’s book we learn that he hears death bells. In this book we get a hint of Greer’s gift and damn it’s magnificent, he also heals with the help of the spirits and he did enough to help save little Aisha when she was struggling to breathe due to being premature. It was such an amazing scene and it is definitely up there as one of my favourite.

Viper being a daddy is so bloody cute and honestly I live for it.

I really like the epilogue at the end with a teenage Aisha and I find it so cute that she has a crush on John, Shade and Lily’s son, and honestly I bloody live for it!
