Review! Rogue (Sons of Sangue #4) Patricia A. Rasey!

 

 

Readers! I am going to make this Friday even hotter, I am sharing a sexy biker vampire - Rogue - the 4th book in the Sons of Sangue series by Patricia A. Rasey! Enjoy and don't forget to add Rogue to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Vampire MC member Anton “Rogue” Balan, aka Blondy, has turned his back on the powerful Sons of Sangue, betraying the brotherhood he once considered his family. Or so his vampire brethren think. Changing his appearance, his persona, and signing up with rival gang, the Devils, Rogue has gone deep undercover to catch the La Paz Cartel’s kingpin. Having lost a woman he once thought he would spend eternity with, Rogue now feels he has nothing left to lose . . . that is until a temptation named Kimber James invades his dangerous world.

 

Strait-laced Kimber has a problem and his name is Anton Balan. After an impulsive night of passion with him more than a year ago, the small-town librarian still has the hots for the sexy biker next door. She can’t deny her desire for Anton, even though she suspects he’s hiding a secret even darker than his affiliation with an outlaw MC. As for Rogue, no matter how much he tries to refuse the scorching need he has for Kimber—as much as his duty depends on it—he’s powerless to deny his rising feelings for her. And when a blindside by an enemy he once trusted puts Kimber’s life at risk, Rogue’s tarnished honor is put to the ultimate test.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This biker vampire romance is one hot pulse pounding story that rocks readers to their foundations. Rogue and Kimber are strong, bold characters that grab readers by their imaginations and demands they take part in their story. The chemistry between the two is intense and sizzles with lots of heat but the relationship is anything but smooth since Rogue has been labeled a traitor and doesn’t want to drag Kimber into his dangerous world. This keeps the relationship on a bit of a roller coaster with lots of passionate and scorching intimate scenes among the emotionally gripping upheaval that takes place throughout the romance.

 

Thrilling and adrenaline pumping suspense keeps readers glued to the pages as Rogue tries to balance his true loyalties with his current situation. There is never a dull moment to be found among the Sons of Sangue as an enemy hides in the background waiting for the perfect moment to strike and Rogue tries to gather evidence against the Devils all while resisting temptation. An unexpected twist forces Rouge into a deadly encounter that threatens Kimber and puts his tarnished honor to the ultimate test. There is nothing hotter than bad a** vampires on motorcycles and readers can’t get enough of their deadly, tempting and sensational world that holds them enthralled with each encounter.

Mixed Feelings
Evie Undercover - Liz Harris

Evie wants to be an investigative reporter but the any job she could get reporting anything right now was a gossip magazine called Pure Dirt. this magazines on stories on the dirt dug up about different people.  Her job is to go undercover and try to get some dirt on a libel lawyer named Tom Hadleigh. There's a rumor he is having an affair with a married client. Tom has a perfect holiday home that needs restoring but he doesn't speak Italian. Tome needs Evie to speak with his workers so Tom can get exactly what he wants for the house. Evie is to be a girl the agency sent in to be Tom’s interpreter and assistant for a month. If Evie doesn’t right an article the magazine is happy with she will no longer have a job with the magazine and she needs the job. Evie finds she just isn’t the type of person the magazine wants to be. There are so ,many lies she is now involved with. She didn’t want to wreck Tom’s career.

I enjoyed this book. I didn’t like the lies involved but that was what Evie had to do for her job. I understood the why of the lies. I did laugh while reading this. I like the plot and the pace. I liked Evie and tom together. I also liked there was no sex involved. It was a refreshing change. This was a sweet, easy. Romantic read. I liked the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime by Ron Stallworth
Black Klansman - Ron Stallworth

In this memoir, Ron Stallworth writes about becoming the first black detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department and doing a bit of undercover work investigating the Black Panthers before eventually becoming deeply involved in an investigation into local KKK activities. And by "deeply involved," I mean that he accidentally ended up in an undercover investigation as the voice of a white man named Ron Stallworth who was supposedly interested in joining the Klan. He communicated with KKK members over the phone, while a narcotics officer named Chuck acted as the face of white Ron Stallworth when face-to-face meetings were necessary.

I bought this, even though I almost never read memoirs, because this case sounded bonkers and because it was set in Colorado Springs, one of the primary places I grew up. I had seen previews for the movie but didn't immediately realize it was based on a book, and I somehow missed that it was set in Colorado Springs. Since it didn't seem likely that the movie would be shown in my area (it wasn't), I figured I'd give the book a shot.

For the most part, I enjoyed this, and I'd recommend that anyone with a connection to Colorado Springs read it. It was a fascinating piece of the city's history, and although I'm too young to have been in the city at the time it took place, I still enjoyed seeing places mentioned that I knew and/or had been to before.

There was a lot of stuff here that I didn't know. For example, I hadn't known about the grip that the KKK had on Colorado politics in the 1920s and 1930s, or that they had such a huge presence in Denver in particular. I went to both middle school and high school in Colorado and don't remember any of this coming up. I suppose this information could have been covered and I just missed it (history didn't generally interest me), but I'd have thought this kind of thing would have stuck with me.

I enjoyed the times when Stallworth poked fun at the KKK, and there were a few moments in the investigation that made me outright gasp. I wonder how much of it made it into the movie (I still need to watch it). There was a bit involving a KKK application that I imagine would have looked overdone onscreen - I still can't believe that Chuck and the other officer got out of there without any of the KKK members figuring anything out or growing suspicious.

The book's organization was a little confusing, to the point that it was sometimes difficult to follow the case's timeline. I had thought that Stallworth was writing about events relatively chronologically, but this didn't turn out to be the case. For example, on page 84 of my copy of the book, Stallworth was asked by those who knew about his investigation to show off his KKK membership card (which struck me as risky - was it a good idea for so many people to know about the investigation and for Stallworth to show off the card? what if any of those people were secretly KKK members?). Four pages later, Stallworth was calling David Duke to ask about the status of his membership card. There were a few other moments like this, but this one was the most glaring. I also found his occasional "Officer Ed" rants to be overly sudden and a little off-putting.

There were many things Stallworth wrote about that were still applicable today. At one point, for example, there was an anti-KKK protest, and 20 or so KKK members showed up as counter-protesters. They were initially ignored and didn't even bother to put on their robes until one of them asked a member of the media if they'd like a story and the person said yes. After that, it became a media feeding frenzy. As Stallworth wrote:

"The media all too often unwittingly creates the very news it reports because of its zeal to get a story. This only benefits the person or subject being covered and gives them or it a power neither deserves." (126)

 It's the kind of thing you can still see in play today, as the media gives screen- and air-time to white supremacists who wouldn't otherwise have that significant of a platform. That said, there were times when I very much disagreed with Stallworth's interpretations, particularly his thoughts on "Antifa" (his decision to capitalize it, not mine).

I wonder whether the movie faithfully stuck to the book's ending, or whether it embellished things a bit? If this had been fiction, the ending would have been deeply disappointing -

instead of coming to some sort of satisfying conclusion, complete with arrests and whatever else, Stallworth was ordered to close the investigation. (I wondered at the legality of what he did to get the documents he eventually used in order to write this book. I assume he wouldn't have gone ahead with the memoir if possessing and using those documents could still have gotten him in trouble, but I honestly don't know.)

(spoiler show)


All in all, I'm glad I read this, despite my issues with some of it.

Extras:

Several pages of black-and-white photos of documents, items, and photographs relating to the KKK investigation and the beginning of Stallworth's career as a police officer.

“Troublemakers all of them,” John said. He heard the water drain from the tub, shut down the files on his comp. “This is going to be interesting,” he muttered. Taking the com, he knocked on the Princess' door and waited. Princess Margarita kept him waiting. He was giving her another ten seconds. The door opened. She stood there in t-shirt with no bra and shorts. “What,” she said. John swallowed as lust slammed into him. “Your com,” he said keeping his eyes on her face and gray eyes. “Great,” Mel said. “I told you to keep it.” “Do you want them going through the station,” John asked. “Bubble killer,” she grumbled and took it from him. He stepped back from her. She followed him out. “So who did you piss off to get this assignment?” “I beg your pardon,” John said. “When I lived in the monstrosity, the security people begged not to be on my detail,” Mel said. Her com chimed multiple times, but she continued to ignore it. “Are you going to answer your com,” he asked. “Not until I have to,” Mel said. “Can we get some food?” “While we can order from any of the restaurants on this level, I’d prefer to wait,” John asked. “Great,” Mel said sounding like it was anything but. “Do any of them have a good burger?” “The menus are on the comp,” John said. “I’d prefer to wait until my team is here. It restricts those who have access…” Ignoring him, Mel walked over to the comp, brought up the menus and started shifting through. “How the hell does this count as a burger. Shit, what is all this crap,” she complained as she moved through the list. “Oh, here we go. You want one?” John ran a hand through his hair. “Did you hear what I said about security,” he asked. “I heard,” Mel said. “The thing is, I don’t care. No one has bothered with me for the last three years. You get a juicy assignment of babysitting me. I get to eat real meat instead of the more affordable substitutes while I’m annoyed with all this crap.” John smiled at her description but the information he was given belied her assessment. “There are some serious threats,” he said. She turned from the menu, paused in ordering momentarily. “Like from who?” “There were briefings sent to you,” John said. “Oh, those,” Mel said. “I don’t agree with the assessments.” She turned back to the menu. “You want anything?” “Princess Margarita,” John said. “Perhaps you might return to your room. It’s inappropriate for you to be dressed so casually in my presence. Security is my top concern and if you could wait for a meal, it will assist in ensuring you are safe and secure.” Mel went very still, too still. She took a deep breath, seemed to argue with herself. John waited for her reaction. Shaking her head, she turned, “There are a few things I’m going to tell you about me. First, don’t call me Princess. I’m Mel. If you can’t manage that, get a replacement. Second, my own mother can’t get me to dress like a princess. If you don’t like what I’m wearing, don’t look. Third, I’ll get a damn meal when I want a damn meal. If you don’t want me ordering, then I’ll be happy to go back to my place alone and get food.” “Pri.. Ma’am,” John modified how he addressed her. “In order for this to work, there has to be cooperation.” “I’m here, aren’t I,” she said her temper starting to break through. “I’ve let you drag me to this hideous suite. I’ve let you pull me out of my job which I’m probably going to lose now thank you very much.” “Why do you need a job,” John asked seeing her worry at the job loss. “Because I pay my own damn way,” Mel said. She threw up her hands, stalked back into the bedroom and slammed the door. John wasn’t sure what to think. He heard her moving around in the room. She came out again, wearing pants, a bra and a long sleeve top which covered her. “I’m going out,” she growled stalking around him. “No,” he said stepping in front of her. “Princess Margarita, your safety is my highest priority.” “Get out of my way,” Mel said. “You can take that damn com and shove it. You can take this assignment and shove it. I don’t care one bit what threats there are, I’m out.” “Your disregard for threats is what got your friend killed,” John said digging deep into what he knew about her. “Are you sure you want to continue your reckless behavior?” “You have no clue,” Mel said hurt flashed across her face. “It wasn’t my disregard for threats which caused her death.” “The two of you snuck out,” John said regretting the hurt he saw the topic caused her. “She died and you didn’t.” Princess Margarita you have a call waiting, please take the call in your suite “Fuck,” Mel said. She stalked over to the com, pressed the button to see her sister. “It’s about time, Margarita,” Sabrina said. “You’ve upset mother. Why do you have to be difficult?” “What do you want, Sabrina,” Margarita said. “Mother needs you to do some diplomatic schmoozing at three events,” Sabrina said. “No,” Margarita said. “I’m not … I walked away.” “You can’t walk away from your family,” Sabrina said. “Now I’ve sent the times of the three events. Do you have anything decent to wear? What am I thinking, of course you don’t. I’ll see to it some suitable clothing is sent to you. Margarita, don’t mess around with this.” “I’m not doing this,” Margarita said. “Mommy and daddy are really stressed out, do you want to cause more problems,” Sabrina said. “Be a good girl for once in your life and do as you’re told.” “And if I don’t,” Margarita said. “I’ll send Michael down to you,” Sabrina said her eyes narrowing as she watched her sister take in the threat. “Bitch,” Margarita said. “Fine, but I’m not wearing anything stupid. You can send someone here but I’ll pick the outfit, unless you want me going in my comfortable clothes.” “Fine, but read the briefs and do what you're supposed to at these receptions,” Sabrina said. “Tell the rest of them to leave me alone,” Margarita said. She closed the connection, hung her head. “Fuck.” Without a word, she returned to her bedroom. John stared after her and wondered if he could contact Michael.

It Was OK
Dragon Undercover - Kerry Adrienne,Lia Davis

After Owen’s sister is murdered, he goes undercover to find and the rogue dragon from killing again. What he doesn’t expect is to find his mate next door. When her sister goes missing, he’s determined to find her safe and bring her back to his mate.

This was a pretty quick read. Things moved pretty fast, not leaving a whole lot of room for character development. While I got Owen’s character and feelings pretty well, I didn’t really get into Nadia’s character. I would probably read from this author again.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
