Book Review for Devious Savior (Vicious Vipers MC Book 6) Lynn Burke
Devious Savior (Vicious Vipers MC Book 6) - Lynn Burke

 

 

What an enjoyable story this was after the whopping ending with Virgil's story and with his brother's continued attempts to self-sabotage and continuing down the rabbit  hole we were more intrigued than ever what his story was.

The answers to Ricky's past are revealed and he finally comes face to face with his demons that have been haunting him for over 20 years and with a little help from a blonde tiny dancer he even may overcome them once and for all.

I have to say that I really enjoyed Ricky's character because I found him to be real, vulnerable, protective, heartsick, guilt stiffened while having a lot of insecurities all probably stemming from his life choices and past deeds but, not so gone that he wasn't the type of man who wouldn't be redeemable.

I loved Casey from the moment that women graced the pages because that woman was a spitfire also sexy, independent, bold, beautiful, forward, and not the kind of woman to give up what she wants. Casey had me smiling and laughing out loud at her antics and forwardness and she kept that  smile plastered to my face the entire book. Casey may have been all those things but, like all women, she had her own insecurities which made her even more of a love-able character.

Lust and love, at first sight, we're pretty much what drew Ricky and Casey together in the first place baring her amazing resemblance to Ricky's past lover who haunts his dreams but, in the reality, they are complete opposite's. The chemistry and pull between the two was scorching hot  and sexy but, as always the road to getting want you to want is never an easy one and for this couple will love to be able to conquer all and lay those demons to rest once and for all?

We loved the story from beginning to end and we loved that it was heartfelt and emotional and complicated and had awesome characters that felt real so much so you felt their pain and suffering. A touching story about addiction, and healing, love, and forgiveness all wrapped up in one but, along that path and through all that chaos it leads you to the one woman destined to be your soulmate. A tale that kept you glued to the pages the entire time.

Book Review for Twisted Devil by Lynn Burke
 Twisted Devil (Vicious Vipers MC #4) by Lynn Burke - Lynn Burke

 

 

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!

Book Review for Callous by Lunn Burke
Callous Criminal (Vicious Vipers MC #3) by Lynn Burke - Lynn Burke

 

Let's start off by saying that we are really enjoying this series as we just love the characters that it has. Callous aka Ryder is no joke a cold heart-ed a killer who makes no bones about who he is and we loved that about him. The broken man was capable of being loving, caring, protective sweet, and kind, and even with his affliction of no touching that he battles with daily was making slow strides with his little problem even if he wasn't even realizing it.

Pia aka Little Lamb as Ryder/Callous calls her was the bomb we just loved her. We found her to be loving and caring and protective of her charges so much so she took her job seriously as a social worker above and beyond the job to see to the safety of them the best she could. We loved her with Callous/Ryder even though she wasn't sure what lead to him being the way he was and that she took a chance on him hoping that little by little she could figure him out and help him in only the way she could. All those little accidental touches were working there little miracle.

Talk about chemistry this couple had that in spades. We loved them together even though we first thought that Pia was crazy to put up with the man's bullsh** ways. I have to say that we loved them together as they were complete opposites but, perfect for one another. One thing we loved most about this couple's relationship is that Callous from the onset of meeting Pia he never hid who he really was.

Overall this was a touching story that tugged on one heartstring's of what Dasia and Ryder/Callous endured. I loved seeing a whole different side of Callous and Pia embrace her wild side that she kept locked up tight inside of her and how she took a chance on a bad boy. Together they were a force to be reckoned with!

Review: Court of Miracles
The Court of Miracles - Kester Grant

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

I was really excited when I got the approval for this one. One of the rare books I knew right away was going to be an epic once I started reading. Seeing “Six of Crows” comparisons tend to make me roll my eyes as it usually involves a break in to some impossible place of some sort. It was really the “Les Mis” comparison that drew me in for this one.

 

Though it took a while for me to spot anything resembling Les Miserable. I thought the world building was absolutely fascinating. I didn’t really get much of a sense of 1800s Paris though, it was more about the Courts and the characters, but the sense of place, the gloom and grittiness came through as the story progressed.

 

There was a dark sense of foreboding and dread throughout the whole thing, and something morbidly fascinating about it as well. Beautifully written and evocative, the novel was impossible to put down. I’m really looking forward to more from this series.

 

Thank you to HarperCollins UK, Harper Fiction for approving my request to view the title.

Review: Nocturna
Nocturna - Maya Motayne

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Short review because I read this one some time ago and can’t remember much about it. I’d forgotten I requested this one, and it was book of the month in one of my book subscription boxes so I got a pretty signed hardback with sprayed edges and an exclusive cover.

 

It took a while to get into the plot, I liked the world building, I found the setting quite unique and interesting with its Spanishy feel to the language of the magic and descriptions of the country. I did get quite annoyed with the use of the world “maldito” which I personally felt was overused. Other than that, the use of language added nice dimension to the flavour of the novel.

 

It was quite some time into the novel before the two main characters even met. It was like two separate stories and where was this going to go? The plot was interesting enough, two very different people from very different lives find themselves thrown together and having to work together to solve a problem with an outcome that would be mutually beneficial.  But it did include as part of the plot a break someone out of impossible to break into or out of prison. Which is something I’ve seen recurring in a few fantasy books. That type of plot is getting a tad bit eye rolling. It did add some nice action to the novel and seemed to also add some dimensions to the characters.

 

One thing I really did like was there was little to no focus on romance until just hinted at right at the end. The relationships focused on were more friendship style. The two main characters just seemed to annoy the hell out of each other. Though as the novel progresses they seem to empathize and start to trust each other more building to a solid foundation of a decent friendship. There may be something more to that in the follow up.

 

Not one of the best fantasies I have read but definitely an interesting one with a different take on magic building. I am looking forward to more from this series.

 

Thank you to Hodder and Stoughton for approving my request to view the title.
