๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏

 

A fitting ending or a possible non-ending, since at the end of the Audiobook the Author says she is quite possibly going to write another Deanna Madden book at some point in time.  Of which I will gladly listen to.  Jorjeanna Marie is the voice of Deanna Madden, after 3 books of doing so.  I still wish the series had a male narrator for the male parts of the book, though.

The enigmatic Deanna Madden is someone who is unlike any other character I've ever read about.  Her backstory is so tragic, her present so darkly titillating, yet totally compelling...and her possible future, hopefully, involves a little more healing than we've seen so far from her.

Will havoc continue to determine their lives or is their love strong enough to bring order?
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this is a new author for us and we really enjoyed our second read by them as we really loved how opposites attract and both Alex and Key were perfect for one another and some would say they found their perfect soul mate. 
 
I really enjoyed this story as it revolved around a couple who were highly attracted to one another but, completely different in more ways than one. I however, loved that none of this seem to matter to either of them especially Alec who was currently acting a a DA in there current town.I loved how Alex was willing to make some major life changing sacrifices to keep Alex in his life and his bed.
 
Alec and Key had amazing chemistry some would say explosive even both neither knowing how to come to terms with such attraction or how they were feeling but, something definitely worth exploring.And exploring they did as they were truly meant for one another no matter the differences between them things heated up in their relationship even more this time around.Hot ! Hot ! Hot! and Hotter!
 
Alec is a rich boy,and attorney at law and super sexy and attracted to bad boys.We found him to be,handsome,sexy,hot,compassionate,caring,had a sense of humor, smart and was understanding and patient and had a clever mind.Alec was so adorable and we just loved him and applauded him for all the sacrifices her made for the love of his life.
"He was to cute !"
 
I loved Alec from the onset in the story as Alec was one of those down to earth kind of guys.I loved that even though he was rich and his home and possessions showed that he never flaunted his wealth or acted superior because of that fact and never made Key feel inferior because of his upbringing or blue collar ways.I really loved Alec's sense of humor he made me laugh constantly throughout the story.
 
Key was one sexy hot man! I loved him from the onset of the story too! I loved that bad boy vibe he had going on those sexy muscles,that he was a little socially awkward but, overall just a great guy who needed the right person to bring him out of his shell.Being a gay and a biker and having a non excepting father of your sexuality didn't help his self esteem but, that is something Alec is changing for him by just being with him as Alec see's the good in him and always makes him feel at ease when they are together.Our heart bleed time and time again for Key and all his uncertainty and doubts about his self worth all the time he was amazing it was just a shame he never saw what others saw in him.God he was one hot delectable hottie that made a girls mouth water!
 
This story was hot hot hot! I thought that Alec and Key made a great couple and I love how they were when they were together and their chemistry was off the charts.I loved those super sexy love scenes in and out of bed as they were super hot and I loved how carefree they were with each other when they were together .
 
I loved the story it was sweet and made you laugh had some club drama and suspense and had amazing characters for us to fall in love with.This was one of those romance reads that made you feel good and we were rooting for this couple to fall in love and make it work even with all those outside complications they are going to have to address sooner or later.
 
Overall we loved this continuing tale of Alec and Key.Alec turned out to be my favorite character this time around  because we loved how he never stopped fighting for him and Key and their love & relationship and also their future.I loved all the little changes and gifts and gestures he made on Key's  behalf proving to him that he was in this for the long haul and working toward a future that include marriage and kids and a home etc he just needed to convince Key he deserved to be happy and no obstacle would stand in their way to achieve that.
 
I have to say Alec and Key have moved up on my list of my favorite same sex couples for 2019. I really really loved them together as a couple and will continue rooting for them to find their happily ever after because these two truly belong together.I was engaged and engrossed  in the story from the onset and remained that way to the very end.This one goes into the keeper pile to read time and time again.
 
We are really loving this authors stories and so looking forward too getting caught up on her already published reads as well as her new releases.
 
 
Recommended read to all who love M and M romance reads!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
 
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
 
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
 
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
 
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
 
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Carnal Secrets Box Set by Vonna Harper
Carnal Secrets Box Set - Vonna Harper

This box set comprises the first three stories in the Carnal Secrets series. All of the stories are very #DARK, with non-con sex, kidnap, abuse, to name just three. This is not a box set for the faint-hearted.

Out of the three, I thought Naked Nights was the strongest, with Taking Her Down as the weakest. All of the stories had mixed elements to them, some which I thought were well done, others, not so much. Taking Her Down though was too confusing from the start. There was no clear clarification about the whole story/role-play - with hints given about a possible supernatural element to the island and how it affects the characters, but nothing ever being said out loud or being made clear. Other characters definitely need more to them as they seem to play a big role, but then fade into the distance.

A box set to pass the time if you fancy something dark, but that won't make you think too deeply.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

I love JLB's Naturals Series so much, she can really pull off a story that has both teens and mystery unlike anyone else I've read before.  Her writing is not only engaging and smart but feels completely conceivable...she writes in a way that just feels, believable.
 
While I liked the first book in the Fixer series, it just didn't have the pull that the Naturals Series did for me, but this second book was chocked full of non-stop action, plus intensely gripping political intrigue, I flew through this Audio in no time at all.  The narrators sound is a tad on the annoying side, but overall not too bad.  At least she didn't ruin the book for me...although I'm not sure that could happen...it was just too badass.

Former military specialist and recluse Reece Hunt takes his job of protecting the Savage Kings MC very seriously. When one of their regular girls go missing, he won't rest until he tracks her down and makes sure she's safe.
 


While Cynthia Collins has loved every second she has spent with the Savage Kings, the problem is that none of the men have ever really cared for her. The guys are all starting to settle down and she's not getting any younger. Whatever hope Cynthia had of becoming one of the Kings' old ladies is quickly dwindling as she gets ready to turn thirty; that's why she decides that it's time to give up the club life in search of more.

 


After Reece shows up on Cynthia's doorstep, her plan of leaving the MC may unknowingly become more difficult than she expected.

 


For reasons Reece can't even understand, he begins sabotaging Cynthia's plan of dating men who don't ride Harleys or wear leather to try and lure her back to the club.

 


When Cynthia finds out what Reece has been up to, he'll have to either put up or shut up. It's been more than a decade since he let himself fall for a woman, and he's not sure if he's ready to go down that bumpy road again. Besides, he doesn't have time for any distractions from monitoring the club's security.

 


Reece has apparently forgotten that sometimes love has a way of knocking even the most stubborn men off their feet, whether they're ready for it or not.

 


This is the seventh book in the Savage Kings MC series but it can be read as a standalone. The preferred reading order is:


King's Road
Chase


Abe

Torin

War

Maddox
Dalton

Reece
Miles (Coming Soon)
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this was our third read by these authors and we really enjoyed it.I am a big MC gene reader junkie so whenever I get a chance to snag a new MC author to feed my addition I do and I am so glad I came across this series as it is so much fun.
 
I loved the main character's from the onset of the story. Omg ! I fell head over heels myself for Reece with all that cockiness and those sexy good looks.I have to say I have read a lot of MC romances but, this was one of those romance reads that was super sweet because we loved that whole 10 date rule before I will sleep with you deal.I have to say that I loved  the courtship that went on between Cynthia and Reece as he really did go all out to make them special and whether they were in person or on video chat let's just say those ones were a little more interesting lol.
 
 
We loved getting to know Reece a lot better as we already loved him from the previous books so we were glad to get to know his story.Reece's story explains a lot about him and why he chooses to be alone so much.Although Reece's didn't have the ideal home life he made some major life changes to see to the happiness of himself and his women and future family. Lost and betrayed and broken is how he  came to the Savage Kings.
 
We loved Reece with his sense of humor( who need he had one to begin with lol) his sexy good looks, loved his possessiveness and protectiveness for those he cared for and loved but, most of all we loved the lengths and the sneakiness he went to in order to win the girl who from the moment he met her wanted her.We loved the smart hot sexy computer nerd that made us laugh out loud time and time again throughout this engaging tale.
 
Cynthia we found to be feisty,sexy, full of fire had a sense of humor and was comfortable with owning up to her own sexual needs and wants and the choices she's made past and present and has no trouble at all speaking her mind.Cynthia has been running from her past but, while carving out a new life for herself she been healing and looking to he future in the meantime.
 
The chemistry between Reece and Cynthia was off the charts and we are sorry it took so long for them to find their way to one another because clearly they were meant to be together.There sexual encounters were super hot as well as playful.These two just needed to be in the same room together and we felt the heat and sparks all around them.
 
Overall we loved the story from cover to cover as it was engaging,funny,heart felt,fill with some drama and made us laugh out loud time and time again as well as shedding more than a few tears and had a sweet love story that was really touching and turned out to be one heck of an enjoyable read.
 
Recommended read to all!
