Hayden was created by a man named after the devil himself. She is a survivor. A girl who has seen more of hell than any one person ever should.
 
A new life was handed to her, when the Notorious Devils saved her.
 
Crooner had a family of blood once. Orphaned, his life seemed to fall apart, until he met the Notorious Devils.
 
He had all the family he thought he needed. That is, until a teenage single mother in need of protecting is thrown into his path.
 
He knows he’s no good for her. She’s too tempting to resist. Their road will be rough—their journey is not for the weak.
 
*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Violence, Language and Sexual Content 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that Hayley is one of my favorite author's as she always creates wonderful character's for us to love and cry over each and every-time.
 
Crooner & Hayden made one hot super couple.the sparks and chemistry and the love they had for one another made it so easy to love and read about them and their amazing love story.
 
Hayden and Crooner have had past history albeit not a intimate one as Crooner took part in saving her from a hellish life that was filled with abuse and sexual slavery but, from the moment they meet each other they forged a bond with one another that would last a lifetime. The connection and trust between them was so strong that it was easy for Hayden to start trusting someone again and begin the healing process and Crooner was a big part of that.We fell in love with Crooner for the patience and kindness he showed her and her child.From the very beginning of their meeting each other Crooner started falling in love even though he fought it every step of the way. 
Omg ! his constant push and pull antic's became priceless'''
lol
 
I loved how they deeply cared for one another even when they were apart and that their intense friendship developed into so much more.
 
" I loved how it all unfolded once Crooner decided to take what had always been his!"
 
I always pick a favorite character and my choice this time around is going to be Crooner as I just loved him from the start.I loved that he was trying to be selfless along with being protective,caring,kind, and dangerous to those who tried to hurt the ones he loved.I found his personality to be larger than life even along with having that dark and dangerous side to him to that we love as well.What I loved most about him was the way he was with baby Easton and how he stepped right into father mode without even realizing it it was something that just came so naturally to him.
 
I love the lit bit of a cat and mouse game this couple had going on as Crooner was obsessing over Hayden and protecting her from himself  and yet fighting the inevitable .He reminded me of a caged tiger more than once.
 
"It was like whiplash sometimes lol."I understood Crooners reasonings but, I even saw from the beginning it was a doomed cause as he lost his heart to Easton and Hayden from the very beginning of their acquaintance.I think it was love at first sight for him for them both of them.
 
I have to mention that it amazed me at the strength and determination Hayden had. I loved the way she loved Easton with her whole heart considering that he came into this world because something was taken from her that was not freely given just makes her more amazing to me.Selfless love......
 
I have to say that I really loved the story from beginning to end as the story line dabbled into subject content that is a growing concern for women today and that if you are strong enough you can rise above the ashes.I loved  how something positive came out of a very bad situation and that meeting someone and other someones gave a beautiful soul a second chance at a new life.The story became very emotional at times as both Crooner and Hayden's demons kept creeping up and interfering in their new found relationship but, I loved how they just had to find their way together to overcome those obstacles.
 
Just made their love stronger....
 
I will say that as much as I loved see this couple happy and the love grow between them I knew that their happily ever after was going to be a rocky one and it broke my heart for the trials that they would have to incur but, knew one filled  with patience ,kindness and understanding would help them to achieve their kind of happiness they both deserved.
 
Another amazing hot and scorching read that was filled with a great cast of characters that made you laugh as well a want to cry.
 
Hot ! Hot! Hot!
 
I loved when you connect with the characters you read about and I was able to do that as both the main characters Hayden and Crooner and Easton were just so easy to love from the onset of the story.
 
Recommended read to all! Be sure to check out the first book in the Cash Bar series as that story was just as amazing!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard. Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

Reading progress update: I've read 32%.
City of Fallen Angels (Chroniken der Unterwelt, #4) - Cassandra Clare,Heinrich Koop,Franca Fritz

Irgendwie geht mir Clary auf den Geist mit ihrem Getue ala „ich muss tapfer sein“ und dann wiederum denke ich mir nur so „komm, nimm das jetzt nicht zu ernst“. Auch mal irgendwie schön so beim lesen zu denken. Einfach nur lesen, um der Unterhaltung wegen und nicht alles so ernst nehmen zu müssen. Hab mich da wohl immer selbst zu sehr unter Druck gesetzt.Es gibt einfach nicht DAS perfekte Buch. Einerseits ist es schön, dass ich ENDLICH diese Einsicht erhalten habe, andererseits ist es sehr schade, dass ich das erst nach 2 Jahren Lesepause bekam.

Guardian Angels and Other Monsters by Daniel H. Wilson
Guardian Angels and Other Monsters - Daniel H. Wilson

From the blurb:

"From the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse comes a fascinating and fantastic collection that explores complex emotional and intellectual landscapes at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human life. A VINTAGE BOOKS ORIGINAL.

In "All Kinds of Proof," a down-and-out drunk makes the unlikeliest of friends when he is hired to train a mail-carrying robot; in "Blood Memory," a mother confronts the dangerous reality that her daughter will never assimilate in this world after she was the first child born through a teleportation device; in "The Blue Afternoon That Lasted Forever," a physicist rushes home to be with his daughter after he hears reports of an atmospheric anomaly which he knows to be a sign of the end of the earth; in "Miss Gloria," a robot comes back to life in many different forms in a quest to save a young girl. Guardian Angels and Other Monsters displays the depth and breadth of Daniel H. Wilson's vision and examines how artificial intelligence both saves and destroys humanity.
"

 

This is a compilation of 14 short science-fiction stories.  I found this collection to make for enjoyable reading, though some stories I enjoyed more than others.  This collection deals mostly with the human side, rather than the science side, of whatever subject the author was writing about at the time.  Some stories were thought provoking, others rather creepy.  The writing was beautiful. 

 

NOTE:  I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.  This review is my honest opinion of the book.
