Running Wild held just a bit to much chaos for me...
Running Wild (Havoc, #1) - S.E. Jakes,Dorian Bane

'Running Wild' is the first book in the series Havoc by S.E. Jakes.  Sean Rush is a bad boy adrenaline junkie who steals and races cars...preferably classic muscle cars and is drawn to Ryker a lieutenant in the Havoc Motorcycle Club who coincidentally enough can't seem to stay away from Sean. 

 

I have to admit this is a bit of a bizarre MC they make they money producing legit porn and aren't involved in drugs, arms running or prostitution. They help get vets re-integrated to civilian life after they've served and keep the town they live in as drug and crime free as possible...but don't cross them because they know how to get rid of the bodies. 

 

I have to say I definitely found this to be a bit of a fantasy world. But what the hell it's fiction and if vampires can sparkle than bikers can be good bad boys...right? It could happen. I have to admit I found it damned lucky for Sean that Ryker was so into him because seriously he saved Sean's backside on more than one occasion.

 

When all was said and done I definitely liked Ryker more than Sean and even Sean didn't frustrate me as much as his friend Noah...seriously with friends like Noah one would do well to skip the enemies.

 

Sean's actually trying to stay on the right side of the law but eventually thanks to a friend he gets dragged back into his past and thankfully Ryker's on hand to guard his six because things aren't adding up in Sean's favor and if not for Ryker there's a good chance that Sean wouldn't survive events long enough to find out who and why someone wants him dead.

 

All this made for enough action and interest to keep me listening...well this and Dorian Bane's narration giving the MCs each their own unique and voice that...and forgive me if I'm stereo-typing here but I liked that each of these men had voices that I as easily able to attach to someone of their character and image. Their voices were gravelly and husky at times giving a hint of danger and other times they held the promise of sex. For me Mr. Bane definitely nailed it with his vocals for these men.

 

In spite of all this there were times that it just felt like these wild boys were just a bit too tame. While I enjoyed listening to this on audio I can't honestly say that it would have been as enjoyable to sit and read the story. For me this one definitely benefited from the narration.

Emotional, second chance/reunion.
Holler and Howl - Susanna Rogers

This story was a surprise for me. It is the first I have read by Susanna Rogers. I loved both Lily and Nick as well as the secondary characters. This is a reunion/second chance story, and I enjoyed their journey to the realization they belong together no matter what obstacles there are. I loved when Nick took ownership of his feelings toward his father and how he felt more confident. Lily was a strong woman, doing everything she could to survive. Family was important, blood and otherwise, in this story. I highly recommend this story, and I look forward to the next book in the series.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

TOUCH OF SMOKE BY: KARISSA LAUREL
Touch of Smoke - Karissa Laurel

"A girl doesn't fall in love with the devil and come away unscarred... "

 

Well I'm officially a goner, Karissa Laurel has done it again. I'm over the moon for Owen and Rikki. TEAM OWKI 4 LIFE.

 

Owen definitely brought the heat, but he was actually very sweet too. I appreciated how endlessly patient he was with Rikki. He was a take charge kinda guy but he always let Rikki set the pace and call the shots. It was refreshing. I feel like so often you see that Alpha male type be overbearing and constantly pushing against the emotional walls that the women construct. Not Owen. He was clear about his feelings and desires but totally content to prop a smouldering elbow against the wall with a smirk and let Rikki decide when she was going to let him in. Owen had his secrets though and they were searing.

 

 

 

 

Rikki was pretty awesome too. I respected her drive. She had goals and determination and when she set her sights to something she was going to make it happen. I think Rikki and Owen together is one hell of a force!

 

 

 

 

I absolutely LOVED the preternatural element in this novel. It's something I truly haven't read much about before and it had me totally captivated. That ending was equally awesome and torturous. Laurel turned up the heat to scorching and I need more. SO. MUCH. MORE. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Book Tour: Trials and Trails
Trials and Trails: Adventures and Unexpected Discoveries of Life - Jim Halverson

We follow a young man that joins up with another after a cattle drive in Nebraska that came from Texas. His name is Leroy. The man that helps him and join him is named Johnny B. We follow them as they had North and somewhat West.

We learn about the lives a bit and nature though out the book. We go on trails and adventures with them both. It fun to see where they go and what they experience. They even meet up with a lady named Alice. They seem to want to help folks and find there their own way in the world.

We learn about Leroy past and a little bit of Johnny B's. You will surprised at the end as to who Leroy's father is? I can not tell you as it would be a bummer and spoiler. What would do if you are treated as a slave but find out something socking about your parents? I wondered why Leroy was able to get a education along with the master's son? Did he know that he had a brother or not?

The author does so well with story that you want to go along for the ride. I enjoyed it and would like read more by this author. He talented. He put me in the era that his story was telling. It was nice going across the west by horseback and being able to visualize the USA West as I was reading.
