Fort Max!
Star Trek vs. Transformers #5 (of 5) - John Barber,Mike Johnson,Philip Murphy

So, yeah, what happens with Fortress Maximus is just beautiful that I'd love this whole mini-series just for that.   

 

I'll most likely read it, although not immediately.  I also have some beautiful variants from this series so that's fun!

Murphy’s Law- Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
 
As Satan’s Fury’s sergeant-at-arms, it was my job to stay one step ahead. It was up to me to make sure the club was ready when things went awry. I had to anticipate our enemies’ every move and plan accordingly. I couldn’t let Murphy’s Law bite me in the ass, so I created a set of rules to follow.
 
• The club comes first.
• Always have your brother’s back.
• Don’t make promises you can’t keep.

• Don’t buy into other people’s bullshit.

• Never let your emotions rule you.
 
I thought they’d prepare me for anything, but I was wrong. Nothing could’ve prepared me for Riley Nichols—the farmer’s daughter with coal-black eyes and a fiery tongue. She took me by surprise, mesmerizing me with her strength and tempting me with her innocence.
 
I wanted to make her mine, but having her meant breaking my rules—every last one of them.
 
Let's start off by saying we really love this author's series as it has some really amazing character's for us to love and fall in love with.
 
Murphy was a man who had a crappy childhood but, one thing he did have was the love of his high school sweetheart.Murphy joined the military to create a better life and in doing so changed his life forever.We really loved Murphy's character as he always seemed to be the quiet type and a bit of a loner but, we found that there was so much more to him living only as half a man/life but, he just needed the one women to spark something in him at that was a little old country girl named Riley.
 
Riley-We found to be a bit of a firecracker and she definitely had a backbone ,speaks her mind,was open minded along with being loving and caring and pretty down to earth and a bit naive.
 
Murphy-We found him to be a bit broken and a little loss,smart and tech savvy,funny when he let himself go and a man who thought he had nothing to give a women but, he was so wrong he just needed to let himself love again.
 
The story had a engaging plot with great character's.The story had drama and a plot that made us laugh out loud a time or too as well as a sweet romance that made this a really enjoyable read.
 
Riley and Murphy had some major chemistry going on and they really made a cute couple.Their sexual liaisons were super hot and sexy and they seemed to have a lot of fun together.Riley surprised us can you say sex kitten lol. We found her to be a riot thinking of some of her antic's have us laughing out loud just thinking about them.
 
My only complaint would be that I wished that there was more of a development/courtship between Riley and Murphy. We loved seeing Murphy emerge out of his dark whole and how he struggled with his feeling but, even with his struggles with his feelings his club had his back when it came to his girl.For this couple it pretty much love at first sight even if it took Murphy a little bit longer to realize it because his heart was always waring with his head.The author created the perfect ending to a very touching story and we loved it !
 
Recommended read to all and we also recommend the entire series.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Lee,” my father warned. “Go inside. I’ll be there in a minute.”
Being as snarky as possible, I smiled and said, “I’d be happy to show them around for you. I’m sure they’d love to see the stables and check out the horses, or are they here for some other reason?”
I knew I was walking on thin ice. These men were most likely dangerous, but I couldn’t seem to stop myself. It was like I’d been possessed by a crazy person, and she was determined to ruin whatever business they had together. I probably would’ve kept at it if one of the bikers hadn’t taken it upon himself to get involved. As soon as he stepped forward, I realized he was the man from the bar, and it was all I could do to keep my wits about me. With his leather jacket and ass-hugging jeans, he had a rugged look about him, but that didn’t make him any less attractive. In fact, just like the night before, I found it sexy as hell. My interest in him took me by complete surprise. He and his buddies were more than likely criminals, doing God-knows-what to God-knows-who. I knew I had no business finding him or anyone like him appealing, but I couldn’t seem to help myself. I was trying to pull myself together when he removed his sunglasses and his blue eyes locked on mine. Damn, I couldn’t move. I couldn’t think. I was a complete mess. Thankfully, the spell was broken as soon as he opened his mouth. 
“Hey, Lee. Why don’t you do us all a favor and just go inside like your father said?”
I was equally hurt and appalled by his unwarranted suggestion, and while I would’ve loved to tell him where to stick it, I wasn’t stupid. I knew I was up against a grizzly bear of a man. Choosing to play it safe, I replied, “I was just trying to be helpful.”
“I think we both know that isn’t true.” The look on his face left me as breathless as it did enraged. Damn. I had no idea why he got to me the way he did. His voice was low and menacing as he growled, “Now, if you don’t mind … we have business to discuss.”
Again, I had to fight the urge to snap back at him. Trying to play it cool, I took off my baseball cap and ran my fingers through my hair. With sarcasm dripping off of every word, I gave him a forced smile and replied, “Certainly. I wouldn’t want to interrupt.”
When I started for the barn, my father shouted, “Where are you going?”
I removed my sunglasses and turned towards him. “I’m taking Anna Belle for a ride. I’ll be back in a few hours.” 
“Are you going alone?”
“Yep.” I continued forward, and when I strolled by the biker, I gave him a disapproving scowl. “It was a real pleasure.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

Rethinking . . .
Dumplin' - Julie Murphy

I got "Dumplin'" from my local public library recently because people raved about how fun both the book and the TV movie were. And I always read the book first . . .

Yes, the novel was quite fun. But it was also a bit disappointing, because the characters were all (or mostly) just a little bit too good to be true. And I think I'm not in a personal place right now to be much enchanted by a novel that is about not much more than the social problems of American (Texan, even!) teenagers. I've got my own problems and am pretty "over it." 

 

But I saw Murphy's follow-up, "Puddin," in the Target yesterday, and I couldn't resist - I read the flap copy.

It's a sequel.

It's a sequel featuring the relentlessly optimistic, probably clueless, sweet, overprotected, chubby girl and bullying target, Millie. It also features the one character in "Dumplin'" I pretty much loathed, the one-dimensional bitch, Callie (who, apparently, gets a last name in the sequel). 

 

A book for Millie. That, I might have to read.

Mixed Feelings
Murphy's Law - Lori Foster

Nothing is going to go wrong. Ashley Miles has worked too hard for her independence to let some Bentley-driving hunk named Quinton Murphy interfere with her plans—or her freedom. Yes, the chemistry is phenomenal. Kind of scary, actually. But that’s it. NO emotional commitments.

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with Lori Foster’s books. The last one I read I absolutely LOVED. This one, not so much. 14% in, a real conversation between the two main characters and all Quinton can even focus on is the fact that Ashley still has her v-card. Normally not really an issue, but every part of his POV is focused on having sex with Ashley. For some reason, this rubbed me the wrong way. I know this is a re-release, and it’s her re-releases I don’t seem to love so much, but IDK. I did like Ashley though. Her wording of things was pretty funny.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
