Another enjoyable read from this author. We really enjoyed the characters and the story itself as it was fun and flirty and it also had a serious theme to it with issues such as struggling with guilt and battling alcohol & substance abuse.
We loved Hayley from the moment we met her she was kind and funny and independent and she was the type of person that everyone just loves she also is dealing with some personal issues of her own that have her shying away from any kind of a personal relationship until that dirty rocker bad boy Pierce Fox has her wishing things were different.
We loved that cocky bad boy rocker Pierce Fox to even though he initially was a bit of a douche he redeemed himself and then some throughout the book. We loved the fact that although Pierce's past was a troubling one he never made excuses for the choices he made and the things he had done in the past he just owned up to them and moved forward creating a better life for himself. We loved how talented he was and through his process of recovery, he was discovering he had some hidden talents as well.
We loved Pierce and Hayley as a couple they had tons of chemistry and they had developed an amazing friendship before becoming lovers which really was quite endearing. As the story unfolds both slowly start to heal and as they start dealing with the secrets of their past things really started heating up and even discovered things that would yet again change their lives once again.
Overall we really loved the story which surprised me as I am not much of a Rock Star romance kind of girl I ended up loving it. The story was heartfelt and emotional and had you laughing out loud at times and smirking at others. This was a really sweet romance full of lots of messy bits some good and others not so good but, through all the trials two people found their soul mate and they're happily ever after.
Twisted and Dasia's story was touching and heartfelt. I have to say Twisted's character surprised me as he was so much more than a hacker and not your typical computer nerd that is obsessed with his craft he is outgoing, outspoken and likes kinky sex and is obsessed with a girl almost half his age. The age difference had a bit of an ick factor for me but, Dasia's age is nothing compared to all this young girl as already endured and she is already wiser beyond her years as she had to grow up rather quickly to overcome all that she has already suffered just to survive.
Twisted has been drawn and obsessed with Dasia since she showed up at their gate broken and battered but, she is lost and broken and the last thing she needs is a man who needs dominance and obedience in and out of bed even if the age difference isn't really a factor.
Our heart broke for Dasia and time again as that girl was dealt nothing but, hard breaks her entire life but, Pia and Ryder aka Callous are there to pick up the pieces and for the first time in her life has made her feel safe and loved. We loved how Callous was Dasia as it was quite out of the norm for him but, one thing for sure she quickly wormed his way in that dark heart of his. We also loved how quickly she also wormed her way into the hearts of the other club members so much so they considered her one of their own and would give their lives to protect her.
Dasia story just broke our heart time and time again and its a miracle that life didn't completely break her.Dasia had some sort of bond with Twisted from the moment she meets the gorgeous biker and is obsessed with the man just as much as he is with her but, she felt no man would ever want her so this just adds to her torment.
Dasia and Twisted had some off the chart chemistry and perhaps his kink is just what she needs to feel cherished and safe.
Overall the story had enjoyable characters a suspenseful plot and one that broke one's heart. We really are enjoying this series as well as this story as it had us engrossed in the pages to the very end. The series and this current read also had so many loveable characters that you can't help but love each and everyone one of them and we just love that!
No pictures in this update, and also no attempts to include any of Booklikes' links or linking images, because I don't think I could stand the frustration. Plus, I don't want to tempt the site to just time out. Booklikes is still working incredibly slowly for me.
Anyway, I finished How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, Vol. 1 (374 pages), so that gets me another $3.
1st roll: 1 + 3 = 4 (Ascendance of a Bookworm, Part 1, Vol. 3, 428 pages, $5)
2nd roll: 4 + 3 = 7 (The Gamekeeper's Lady, 283 pages, $3
3rd roll: 5 + 6 = 11 (The Accidental Demon Slayer, 292 pages, $3)
4th roll: 1 + 4 = 5 (The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 1, 329 pages, $3)

6th roll: 5 + 1 = 6 (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, Vol. 1, 374 pages, $3)
7th roll: 3 + 1 = 4
I was on spot 36. This gets me past GO (earn $5 automatically) and onto to Spot 3, School's Out for Summer. Requirements:
Read a book set in a school or a college, or that is considered a "classic" (any criteria you want), or that is frequently banned.
As much as I like Murderbot, I don't think the series has made its way onto any "classics" lists yet, so once again I can't choose Artificial Condition. I'm honestly not sure what books I own that would both work for this and fit my current mood. Most of the YA I own isn't contemporary-set and might not take place in a school. I could maybe reread M.C.A. Hogarth's Mindtouch, but I'm kind of in the mood for something new. I don't know, I'll have to think about it.
