REVIEW: All He Ever Desired by Shannon Stacey

All He Ever Desired

(The Kowalski Family #5)

by Shannon Stacey

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts
From Goodreads

A second shot at first love

After college, Ryan Kowalski decided to leave Whitford, Maine, rather than watch Lauren Carpenter marry another man. Now his siblings need his help to refurbish the family-owned Northern Star Lodge and he’s forced to face the past sooner rather than later when he collars a vandal—and learns the boy is Lauren’s son…

The last person Lauren needs back in her life is Ryan Kowalski. With a bitter ex-husband and a moody teenage son, she has enough man trouble already. But her son needs to learn a few lessons about right and wrong, even if Lauren has to escort him to Ryan’s door every day to work off his crime.

With all this close contact, Ryan and Lauren can’t deny the chemistry between them is as powerful as ever. But can a few searing kisses erase their past and pave the way for a second chance at true love?

My Review Final

I love Shannon Stacey. It’s been far too long since I’ve read her and the Kowalski Family series. When I opened All He Ever Desired (book #5 of the Kowalski Family) it was like coming home. With that being said, as much as I liked the first 4 books of the series it’s nothing compared to how much I liked this book.

Ryan Kowalski took a leap of faith as a young man and asked the pregnant wife of his best friend to run away with him. He cared for her, but more importantly he knew his friend wasn’t a good husband and probably never would be to Lauren, so he asked and was shot down. He left his small town after that and returned as little as possible. He owned his own business and was pretty successful, so that kept him busy and away, but if he’s being honest he couldn’t face her on regular basis. All has changed. It’s been well over a decade and he’s needed back at the lodge owned by he and his siblings. Northern Star Lodge has some renovations that need done and that’s Ryan’s niche. He just has to get things done as quickly as possible and get out of there.

Lauren Carpenter’s life hasn’t turned out quite as she hoped. Her marriage failed and her son is in his moody teenage phase. He’s a good kid for the most part, but lately he’s been acting out more and more. When he does the unthinkable and vandalizes the Northern Star Lodge she’s appalled and devastated. Not only is it going to be a huge hit to her budget, a budget that’s already way too stretched, but of all things he had to get caught by none other than Ryan Kowalski. The same Ryan Kowalski that she hasn’t been able to get out of her mind after all these years.

I love Ryan and what a stand-up guy he is. He felt bad for what he did to his friend, but he was trying to do the right thing for Lauren and her son. But, when confronted by Lauren’s ex-husband he owned up to what he did. And I loved how he treated Lauren’s son. He made him responsible for the things he did without belittling him. Lauren is all kinds of great! She’s a good mom and a hard worker doing what she could to get through life and raise her son well. I can’t imagine a better fit for either of these characters other than each other.

REVIEW: To Russia With Love by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

To Russia With Love

(Countermeasure #2)

by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

4.5 HEARTS
4-5 hearts

From Goodreads

NSA tech expert Trevor Bauer is on the hunt for his missing parents who disappeared six years ago under suspicious circumstances. When a digital clue leads him and his new wife, Cassandra, a former CIA operative, to St. Petersburg, they must infiltrate the Russian mafia and outsmart a ruthless crime lord to get their hands on the critical information.

Their mission backfires, leaving Trevor a prisoner and forcing Cassandra to go on the run to protect him. Alone and in the middle of a gang showdown, Trevor must decide…will he do whatever it takes to escape the mafia and get to Cassandra before she flees the country? Or will he risk everything…including his life…to secure the clue he so desperately needs?

The suspense driven COUNTERMEASURE SERIES combines full-length novels and Bytes of Life short stories about sexy, technologically inclined men and women. The series is filled with heart-stopping danger and enough twists and turns to make a hair-raising rollercoaster seem tame. In the series, Trevor Bauer, a tough as nails NSA geek, and his even more tenacious love interest, Cassandra James, are on a quest for clues in the mysterious disappearance of Trevor’s parents. Joined by fate, their search drops them into the mysterious and violent world of data espionage, one that tests their love as they sweep the world with romance, sex, and ingenuity to find answers that will have the power to change their lives forever.

My Review Final

To Russia With Love is the second book of the Countermeasure series. I love this series and loved Countermeasure (book #1). I honestly didn’t think it was possible, but I loved To Russia With Love even more. I could not get enough of the amazing characters that make up the cast of this book. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey do things a little differently and I am a huge fan of their methods. First they offer the Bytes of Life companions that give you just a little more insight and bring you that much closer to the characters. Then, they give you two great romances and a mystery within a mystery all in this fantastic second installment.

In this book, Cassandra and Trevor are married and moved from the US to Ireland, so that they can better investigate the real reason behind the disappearance of Trevor’s parents a few years before. The authorities have closed the case and ruled his parents dead even though no bodies have been recovered. Being able to listen into one’s private conversations tend to come in handy. Trevor overhears a conversation stating that they have a paper written by his father. In an attempt to buy this paper Trevor is given a different task. If he can recover the highly sensitive information that was stolen from this man’s company he will turn over the papers.

This missing information, if decrypted by the wrong people, could be really bad for the entire world. As luck would have it the Russian mafia has the information and they just need the right geek to figure it out for them. I loved that this storyline completely took our characters out of their comfort zones. Trevor was the one on the front lines just trying to survive, so he can get back to the woman he loves and poor Cassie was relocated to the role of behind the scenes support running data and praying for Trevor’s safety. She still had her moments where she got to show off her super badass ex-CIA self, though.

Meanwhile, back in Ireland Jessica is settling in as much as she can. When Cassie offered her a position working for them Jessica jumped on it. She missed her friend terribly, but if she is being completely honest Stephan played a big part in her decision to move, as well. They had one hot kiss the night of Trevor and Cassie’s wedding, yet Jessica hasn’t been able to think of anything else.

Stephan has no intentions of ever settling down or even staying in a relationship too long. This rule is set in stone even if Jessica is now living in Ireland and he can’t quit thinking about the way she made him feel after just one kiss. The attraction is there, but Stephan knows she is too young and deserves things that he can never give her.

I love Stephan! The pain he has tried to bury has dictated the way he looks at life and relationships. Yet, it’s never made him bitter or unkind to women even if it has made him hold a huge part of himself back. I love how Jessica knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it. I can’t think of any couple that deserve a happily ever after more than these two.

I highly recommend To Russia With Love and all of the books in this series to anyone that enjoys romance and intrigue. I can not wait to read more and to get that much closer to finding out what happened to Trevor’s parents.

REVIEW/ GIVEAWAY: Guardian’s Patience by Jacqueline Rhoades

Guardian’s Patience

(Guardian of the Race #5)

By Jacqueline Rhoades

4 HEARTS

4 Hearts

The Blurb:

Short and round, she dresses like a gypsy in vibrant and sometimes clashing colors. She’s been known to dye her hair to match her mood. She does a Good Deed every day and smiles at everyone she meets. But underneath her happy-go-lucky exterior, Patience Delecourt is lonely and afraid. She’s the mouse in a demon’s Cat-and-Mouse game that’s been going on for fifteen years. Her ideal hero would come straight out of the old movies she watches night after night alone in her tiny apartment.

Stuffy and socially awkward, Broadbent ad Sebastian, Guardian of the Race, has his vision of the ideal woman, too; tall, elegant, cultured, and well-read. But every time he meets someone who might fill the bill, his advances are met with laughter and derision. As hard as he tries to emulate his fellow Guardians; their prowess with women, their clothes, their interests; he just can’t get it right.

He doesn’t see himself as handsome or a hero. She doesn’t see herself as beautiful or brave. Yet what they find together opens new worlds of wonder for them both. It also opens the doors to old enemies and sets off a series of events that threaten the House of Guardians and the people within it. With the credits ready to roll on their mismatched love story, Patience and Broadbent will have to find the bravery and heroism they see in each other, and decide how much they will sacrifice for love.

My Review Final

I was delighted when this book debuted because I was waiting to see how everyone was doing now that most of them were settled. My favorite character in the book (aside from Otto and Manon) is Broadbent. He’s dry and funny in his own straight forward way and I get most of his quotes. I love the way he came into the fold later in life than most because it was something he felt a call or duty despite the burden that came along with it.

Jaqueline’s layers of story and the way her world works started some really great friction between the coven and reinforced their bond. Throughout the book we really get a better handle on just what drives Broadbent. Pinkie and her past provided some gray area and made the House sit down and determine just where they drew the line in their war on the demons. I had trouble putting this one away at night because every page had something interesting going on.

My favorite part of any book is a solid world where conflict crops up organically and this installment delivered. It was great watching two characters make conscious decisions to be in love and build a relationship instead of relying on instant chemistry to get them going. I’m not sure if this is the end of them but I’ll be watching out for more.

REVIEW: Caressed By Moonlight by Amanda J. Greene

 

Caressed By Moonlight

(Rulers of Darkness #1)

by Amanda J. Greene

3.5 HEARTS

3-5 Hearts

From Goodreads

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.

Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.

After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.

My Review Final

Some people really have it hard, and whenever they come out on top it always brings a smile to my face. Imagine having your parents torn from you, and in order to pay off their debts and keep your younger sister, you sold everything you owned and moved in with a relative that clearly did not want you and treated you like dirt. That’s what Victoria had to do, and I loved that she never gave up.

Victoria was a strong woman. Hell, with the life she was living she had to be. She did everything possible to take care of her little sister and make sure that they were always together. She took punishments with her head high. She took the verbal lashes silently. She put up with so much. And when her life with her sister was threatened, she stepped up to the challenge and finally broke free of the chains that have held her back for so long. She was willing to sacrifice anything she had to in order to keep her sister, and with the help of a very attractive and famous stranger, she was able to do so. When it came to Dorian, she knew it was not what she had planned, but he was everything she ever needed. The more time she spent with him, the more she came to realize the depth of her feelings for him. She was hopeful and innocent. But in that innocence, she had a strength that had always lived within her. When things in her life got turned upside down, she fell back on that strength to be the woman she truly was. She stood by Dorian and did everything in her power to save him. She trusted him. She believed in him. And most of all, she loved him.

Dorian is a man with a lot on his plate. The last thing he needs is to come to the rescue of a beautiful woman he can’t seem to get out of his head. But that’s exactly what he does, and it’s unexplainable. She was a complication he had to have. He did everything he could for her and her sister. He took care of them. He provided for them. He even loved them. He did everything in his power to help them, and even more of his power to get Victoria to open up to him. He truly loved her, and didn’t realize it until things had severely hit the fan. He fought for her. He did everything in his ability to be there for her through the upturn of her life. He was a true gentleman, and a devoted lover. He protected her and her sister. He used his status to serve him and keep everyone he cared for safe. He cherished everything around it and wanted to take care of it. He was a very giving man, but he could be selfish when it came to the woman he loved.

Although there were a few grammatical errors, it was a good start to a debut novel. The characters were decent. I did feel like she took a little too long to get to the reality of Dorian’s life, but after that it picked up. The love was a mild simmer, and even though I wish it could have been a bit steamier, overall their relationship was very good. I look forward to the next book. Never thought to mix Regency with a little paranormal. Nice.

REVIEW: Merciless Ride by Chelsea Camaron

Merciless Ride

(Hellions Ride #3)

by Chelsea Camaron

4.5 HEARTS
4-5 hearts (1)

From Goodreads

Mercy is no friend of mine. Karma, she has yet to show kindness to me.

The hits just keep on coming for Tessie Marie Harlow. She has never had an easy life. Her mom disabled, her dad long gone, and a single mom raising a rambunctious little boy, that’s Tessie’s world.

Her childhood aspirations to be a nurse long since disappeared after a college spring fling both blessed and burdened her with a baby boy. Dropping out of school, she returns to her hometown and begins to settle in. Getting the only job she could as a bartender she spends her days caring for her son and nights serving the Hellions Motorcycle Club and their affiliates.

Tired of waiting for Rex to grow up, she’s faced with the bane existence of her life until one night changes everything. In the darkest hour of her merciless ride through life, she’s saved by a quiet, laid back Hellion.

Andy ‘Shooter’ Jenkins has always been around. Too wrapped in Rex she has never really noticed him before. He has never been loud or known to have the girls hanging all over him. He is a mystery. A chance encounter brings him to her rescue not once but twice.

The Desert Ghosts Motorcycle Club are in town and bring their own brand of chaos right to Tessie’s door. Forced into her day to day life, Shooter is doing everything he can to shelter and protect her as lines are crossed and a war between two clubs begins.

Secrets revealed putting two brothers in the Hellions Motorcycle Club at a serious crossroads in their lives.

This is not a ride for pleasure. This is not a ride for safety. This is not a ride for love. This is a ride for endurance. Mercy has never once shined her grace down for these two, but in the midst of the danger and lies can they learn to rely on one another and ride it out together?

*This book contains violence, rape, adult content and language and is not suitable for readers under the age of 18*

My Review Final

Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow! You have to read this book! Merciless Ride is the third book of The Hellions series by the master of MC hotties Chelsea Camaron and the best by far!

Tessie Harlow has been Rex’s booty call for far too long. Rex was her girl crush, then college hook-up and now a convenient piece whenever he’s at the bar that Tessie bartends at. She is so over that and has made it clear that she is no longer one of his many, many chicks that are just waiting for him to crook his finger. Life is hard enough for her right now. She’s a single mom just trying to make ends meet and caring for a disabled mom. Not to mention the safety that she always felt bartending at the popular MC hangout has now been shattered.

Andy “Shooter” Jenkins is a member of the Hellions Motorcycle Club. He’s definitely badass, but has a laid back way about him that stole my heart from the very beginning. When he walks into the bar to find Tessie being assaulted by a member of the Desert Ghosts Motorcycle Club he loses his mind. Not only does he stop the assault with brutal efficiency, but he cares for Tessie in every way that she needs.

“I’ve been there, Tessie,” Shooter’s voice whispers in my ear, “where the silence is deafening. Where everything is so dark on the inside, the light of day won’t break through as you go through the motions. When the darkness falls and your mind takes your body back to the place where it falls apart.”

I love Shooter in all his laid back hotness. And I love Tessie! She’s a self-sufficient, hard working mother that will do anything for her kid which makes her all kinds of badass in her right. She hid some really important things, but never maliciously or selfishly. She felt she was doing the right thing. Shooter was perfect in every way. He is strong enough to make a girl feel safe, yet he’s intuitive, thoughtful, loyal, honorable and gentle when needed to be.

Chelsea Camaron, you sure can write hot badass biker books. I definitely put you up there as one of the greats!

REVIEW: Forever Ride by Chelsea Camaron

 

Forever Ride

(Hellions Ride #2)

by Chelsea Camaron

4.5 HEARTS
4-5 hearts (1)

From Goodreads

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

My Review Final

Forever Ride is the second book of the Hellions Ride series by Chelsea Camaron. I loved the first book in this series and raved over it – Forever Ride blows One Ride away! I can not tell you how much I loved this book! It was very different from the first one and from most of the MC books out there. Forever Ride shows a different view of club life from one of the sweethearts of the club and the fight of a hot, badass biker who is working his way back to being the man that he once was.

Savannah “Sass” Perchton wants out of the club life. As the daughter of a club member she’s always been protected and cherished, but the life of a biker’s chick is not one for her. She knows firsthand of how the constant buffet of women and the club always coming first destroys a woman – just look at her parents. If all the years watching her mom cry didn’t convince her Tank did. He was her best friend, aside from Doll, yet he had no problem kicking her out of his bed the morning after. She thought they were on their way to something more, but she’s learned her lesson. Enter Nick, a guy that couldn’t be further away from the biker life, and Sass is starting a new life. Tank needs her, so she’s willing to be the friend they once were and sit by his side while he’s in the hospital. But, she is committed to Nick and will do anything to prove to him how much even if it means completely isolating herself from everything she’s ever known.

Frank “Tank” Oleander was shot when trying to save his uncle’s life during a showdown with a psycho that was trying to hurt the club’s families. He’s been in a coma for far too long. He hears the voices of his beloved club family, but the voice that keeps him holding on is that of Sass. He’s trying to get back to Sass and to make her understand that he screwed up. It may have taken getting shot to make him see that he loves her and deserves happiness himself, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Waking up from a coma isn’t the only obstacle. He’s hurt Sass so much that she’s left the club and is living a life that isn’t her at all. He just has to convince her and prove to her that she belongs with him and her biker family.

I am in love with Tank Oleander. I can’t tell you all of the reasons because of the whole “I don’t believe in sharing spoilers” rule, but let me tell you this man is more than just a sexy as sin, badass biker who will do anything for his club. He’s what every man should be. I loved that we learned so much about his life and what made him who he is and why the club is so much a part of him. Sass is heartbreaking and sad to read. I can’t imagine being in a life that feels like such a bad fit, yet just right at the same time. She tries so hard to get control over her life and ends up almost losing everything. She’s one lucky chick, though. No matter what she’s done or the things she has said her family and friends never gave up on her. I love this couple and this club!!!!!
