Menace by Laramie Briscoe–Review

Ms. Briscoe, Thank you for writing Menace/Mason’s book. I have been swooning over him in previous books and was so excited when he finally got his own story.

Officer Mason ‘Menace’ Harrison is with the Laurel Springs Police Department, where he specifically works with the Moonshine Task Force. Mason is a thirty-four-year-old man, who has sacrificed everything in his life for the past eighteen years. Why? Because this man had a child when he was only sixteen-years-old and was left alone to raise his son, Caleb. That’s right, Mr. Hottie in a uniform is a single dad who has devoted all his time for his son.

“I knew without a doubt, at sixteen-years-old I would do whatever it took to make this boy of mine a success. It’s been a hard eighteen years.”

Caleb is now a senior in high school and has taken it upon himself to set his dad up on an internet dating website. It’s through this dating app that he meets Karina. They go on their date and have a great time, sparks fly, the whole shebang. Afterword, Karina (Rina), ghosted him. Through a career experience day at the local high school, they realize Rina is Caleb’s teacher when Menace goes in to talk to the class.

Here’s the thing. Karina and Menace have a wonderful and loving relationship. They are enjoying the get to know you stage and figuring out the dynamic with Rina dating Caleb’s dad, Menace, while still being Caleb’s teacher. It works and I loved reading about them, but what I really have to gush over is the father/son relationship between Mason and Caleb. Mason is just plain sworthy (swoon + worthy; a hottie worthy of praise) with the way he loves his son (beware of exploding ovaries). Caleb, I freaking loved Caleb. He was very wise and beyond his eighteen years. Of course, he did have to grow up quickly when his dad wasn’t around a lot for work, but he absolutely adores his dad. There was so much love, trust and friendship between these two, it was great to read about a positive father-son relationship.

“If it weren’t for you loving me enough to stick around, I wouldn’t be here. I’ll never know all the sacrifices you made, and I’ll never understand what you went through in order to be the amazing dad you’ve been to me my whole life, but know I love you for every single one of them…I just thought it was important that you know that.”

Karina was almost like a breath of fresh air. Once she got over her hang-up (regarding something that happened on the first date), she was all in with this ready-made family. She took everything in stride and quickly immersed herself with Mason and Caleb like she’s been there the whole time. It was refreshing to read about the growth and development of the characters (father-son, father-Karina, Karina-Caleb and most importantly, Menace, Rina and Caleb as a family). It was beautiful!

“Karina Holland has fuckin turned my life upside down, sideways, and destroyed my careful existence.”

There continues to be a moonshine issue within the high school. This allows the appearance of the MTF to be read about, although a good chunk of the book was dedicated to the new, emerging family and what develops along the way.
I absolutely loved this book and wholeheartedly recommend it to you. MTF is a series, but you could read it as a standalone, as any important factors are explained well (characters and couplings). Even more exciting is that Caleb is going to get his own book!! I can’t wait to read about him.

 

“The teenage fuckup, the single dad, and the loner of the crew -none of those labels apply any more. The one that does? Mason Harrison; happy man.”

Crux Untamed (Hades Hangman #6) by Tillie Cole–Review

Crux Untamed was one of my most anticipated reads! I knew when I read the blurb that I just had to read it. I was curious from the beginning of the dynamic duo of Cowboy and Hush. Cowboy’s outgoing personality and Hush’s calm and quiet demeanor pulled at me making me wonder what was going on underneath. As soon as I heard that Sia was Ky’s sister, I knew I had to have more.

This book…(smh)…man, this book was everything. It destroyed me in the best way possible. It was dark, gritty, uncomfortable, emotional (totally cried here), passionate and the underlying storyline was magnificent.

“Kärleken ser inte färger. Bara rena hjärter.” 

(“Love doesn’t see colors. Just pure hearts.”)

Our three leads are Sia (Elysia), Cowboy and Hush and I LOVED them. They stole my heart and had no concerns with giving it back. Prior to reading, Cowboy and Hush had me intrigued equally. While reading though, Hush, massacred my existence and slowly became my #1 go to guy of the series. Don’t get me wrong, I have other favorites, but Hush will always have an extra piece of my heart.

Tillie Cole mentioned that Jesse Williams, Kellan Lutz and Amber Heard were her inspiration for the characters. She did a pretty spot on job with description and transferring that into reader visualization.

“Three sets of blue eyes, all different. All who have walked different paths…All who have seen the full spectrum of life-the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Sia is the sister to Ky, VP Hades Hangman. When she was seventeen years old, she got into some trouble and drew the attention of Juan Garcia (Mexican cartel). Ky and Styx (Pres of Hades Hangmen) had to go in and kidnap her back. Since this time, she has been hidden on a farm where she happily works with horses, as her own form of equine therapy. Unfortunately, she is indirectly found by Garcia.

“You’re mine, rosa negra. And I’m never letting you go.”

The underlying story and bond between Cowboy and Hush is beautiful, shocking and outright emotional. These twenty-six-year-old Cajun twosomes hale from an incredibly small town in Louisiana. Through much bad blood and incredibly hard to imagine horrific circumstances, they meet and have created a bond so strong, that nothing will destroy it!

Despite the seriousness and emotionally heaviness of this book, Viking and Ky brought forth some much needed instances of laughter. Despite being distraught and tormented, Ky mentioned something that just had me laughing with tears.

“It’s the thought of those fuckers double-teaming you that makes me see red…You’re my baby fucking sister. Now you’re in bed with not one but two brothers, who quite honestly could be fucking each other too. All I see in my head whenever you three are mentioned is a conga line of pussy, cocks and assholes. It’s fucking with my head!”

Truthfully, in all out honesty, Crux Untamed, is one heck of a book. You have Sia, Cowboy and Hush each with their own individual issues/storylines, but then you bring together three different people and meld those storylines into an incredibly heart-wrenching, yet tragically beautiful story, you simply end up with perfection. Everyone has their own very specific role within this threesome, it was exquisite to read. Sia is a broken woman, Hush is a damaged and lonely man, while Cowboy is the free-spirited glue that holds them all together. It was striking to read of them evolving and changing and finding peace within themselves and their souls. A truly impactful story with much greater depth than two men and a woman in a relationship.

“I couldn’t have been prouder to wear the Hangmen patch. Because they were my family…After fighting my demons for so long, I let myself accept the truth. I belonged.”

Bravo to Tillie Cole for another well done Hades Hangman!!

Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

Enterrador by Ambere Sabo–Review

Entebook1023[18283]This was such a unique book.  I find it’s uncommon to read about the anti-hero and get their background story.  I loved this perspective, knowing the end before reading about the past. It allowed us to see how the ‘Enterrador’ persona was born, because there was a man, Adan, before there was an Enterrador.

The Silent Sons series, is listed as standalone novels. However, Enterrador has been brought up in the earlier books. This book gives a nice, concise explanation of who Adan/Enterrador is, where he came from and a small glimpse into where he is going. Who truly is/was the man behind the monster.

My head is so confused though. It’s telling me, ‘he’s the villain and shouldn’t be liked’, however, my heart is a bitch and has a different mind of its own. She’s telling me, ‘how can you really hate him after reading what he’s been through’. The thing is, I don’t know if I can ‘hate’ him after this. I felt so many emotions for him, that I fear when it comes to the next Silent Sons book (book 3, Lilly, Gunner and Enterrador), I may actually like him. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m still rooting for Lilly and Gunner, but it will be interesting to read book 3 with this newfound (semi) appreciation for the villain.

As usual with Ambere Sabo’s books, this was well written with wonderfully in-depth and complex characters. The story of Adan and Alex was so full of emotions and ups and downs. Happiness, sorrow, pain, love, absolute joy, along with a multitude of bad decisions and darkness all encompass this Silent Sons novella.

Ambere’s books continue to get better and I can’t wait for more!!

 

Havoc by Ambere Sabo–Review

havoc_ambere sabo_banner

Havoc is the second book in the Silent Sons MC series by Ambere Sabo. This story is focused on Havoc and is a continuation of book 1 (Cessy).

It’s hard to review too much without giving away the plot but here’s what I can tell you. Havoc is a fast paced, hard hitting MC/cartel life story with raw, gritty emotions. It’s quite the page turner as one would rush to get to the end. There is a happily for now as each story builds on the previous book. I will warn you that she doesn’t hold back on situations, so there may be some trigger scenes (more graphic and violent than anything).

Havoc and Angel are an interesting couple. They have a common goal in mind, however, neither knows their true intentions when thrown together by Cessy and The Silent Sons. They fight for their next day while maintaining ahead of the demons that chase them from the past. It was satisfying to read about Venom & Cessy from the first book and how all their lives entwine with each other.

Considering Cessy was Ms. Sabo’s premiere book, she did an exceedingly wonderful job on her follow up. I look forward to where this series heads next.

Baz by KB Winters–Review

Baz (CAOS MC Book 5)Baz by KB Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Due to conflicting futures in mind, Trina left Baz eleven years earlier. Little did Baz know (or Trina officially), when she left she was pregnant.
Fast forward to present day. Trina wasn’t actually planning on returning home, but it was the place she felt the safest (which will come into play when you read the book). Trina and Jack (their son) accidentally meet each other at the local diner. Baz knew without a doubt Jack was his son. The problem is convincing Trina that he is worthy to be in their lives and the man she originally fell in love with.
I, unfortunately, didn’t get to read the previous books in the series before this one, but that didn’t interfere with the flow of the story. I have since rectified this and bought the past ones simply because I want to read the stories that got these couples to where they are now. Do yourself a favor and one-click this book. You won’t be disappointed.

Whiskey Burning – Bella Jewel

❤️Love the concept of Maverick and Scarlett together❤️

I am a sucker for a MC book, especially a good one. Bella Jewel is just one of those authors that you know is going to be a good read.

Scarlett is a famous country music singer who meets Maverick in a rather innocent way. They maintain this sweet relationship until eventually things turn towards romance.

Maverick is H-O-T. No other words for it. He’s a member of Iron Fury MC who is taking a semi-sabbatical from the club after something major goes on in his life.

I devoured this book. I absolutely loved it. The connection between these two, the highs and lows of an innocent crush to relationship, as well as, drama and mystery are beautifully written.

The only knock against this book is that it ends with a continuation/cliffy. The redeeming part is book two comes out in October 2017. (🤞🏻October comes quickly 🤞🏻)
