~~ Cut & Run
by Abigail Roux & Madeleine Urban
(Cut & Run series book #1)
This series will hook you from the beginning! This is the seventh and unfortunately the final book in the series but it can definitely be read as a standalone.
Lexi is well aware of her looks and doesn’t need to be reminded of them every five seconds. At this point in her life she’s more concerned about making a butt-kicking documentary about the metal band Vicious and fulfilling her dream of making a feature horror film. She just needs to stop worrying about (and staring at) the grouch in the band in order to meet her deadline.
Brand, the bassist of the band, is that grouch. He’s had a tough childhood and doesn’t let anyone get close. Letting people into his life means giving them a chance to hurt him and he’s tired of that. Not even the model-look-alike disrupting his life is going to change that.
Lexi and Brand were a super cute couple. They both tried to deny their attraction from the beginning and so drama and plenty of laughs ensued when they pretended there was no chemistry between them. Brand might have acted all gruff and indifferent at times but he had some deeps scars that made him act that way. Luckily Lexi saw past that dark exterior and focused more on the man that worried about and cared for her. He made some huge mistakes along the way but he learned his lessons and proved he was capable of love.
I don’t want this series to end because I need more from all of the bands! I loved the way each character was not only depicted as skilled at what they did but also as imperfect, vulnerable, normal human beings. I also appreciate how they went through some ordinary, real life situations because that made them even more real. Like when Lexi was having some bad cramping and everyone kept commenting on her looks instead of how she was feeling… yeah, that right there made me want to hug the author! Situations like that happened in all of the books and man, I loved those little bits in each of the books. You can also tell the author loves the metal rock world by the way she describes it and lets us readers be a part of it. I didn’t think I was a fan but after going behind the scenes of the music I know I will give it a try. This was a fabulous read, with well-developed characters and a fascinating setting. I definitely recommend it.
*I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher**
Once Upon a Time in Texas #1, A good Autumn read that takes place just before Halloween and ends with a Christmas epilogue. I adored this book! Maggie and Travis meet at a Halloween costume party, Maggie dressed as slutty Red Riding Hood and Travis as a Wolf. Instant sexual chemistry sparked between them they snuck off together not knowing each others real names and for Maggie not knowing what her Big Bad Wolf actually looked like only to part quickly after but not before Maggie's best friend slipped Maggies's number on to his phone. Travis is fresh out of the military and stuck in his hometown taking care of his nephew, Henry, whose mother just died of cancer and Travis' worthless brother is in jail, again. He's trying to earn money the best way he knows how, especially since the property taxes on his Dad's, now his, ranch are overdue. Maggie is the owner and operator of her own business, Petal Pushers, with her landscaping degree she made a name for herself, now she views Travis as competition, and really annoying, and too sexy for his own good. They wind up getting hired for the same job but for different reasons and the more time Maggie spends with Travis she realises how wrong she was about him.
Travis recognizes Maggie as Red Riding Hood right away but because he was the one wearing the mask Maggie doesn't recognize him. With her number in his phone he makes contact. Through text messages they flirt and sext and Travis falls in love. Maggie is torn between the her Big Bad Wolf and Travis, and what will she do when she realizes they are one in the same. Between the adorable Henry, the loveable Mrs. Garza (I want one of her) and Maggie's two best friends Claire and JD the secondary cast of characters is just as entertaining as Maggie and Travis. I really did like everything about his book. Overall, it ends up being such a heartwarming story with an endearing cast of characters.

Forgive me Father for I have Sinned.
Oh, how I've sinned and sinned. Even my brother's pious meddling can't undo the damage I've done. As VP of the Broken Bows MC I'm content to be the devious, dark and dangerous twin.
I love to cause mayhem.
I enjoy destruction.
Truth though? I wish he was by my side. I'd do almost anything to pull him away from his flock and back to the darkness that I know resides within him.
I will do it anything.
I see their evil, their malice.
I see myself in them.
My brother and the MC want me to return to the club, though it's not my home. It never was. The church has nurtured me, settling my demons. When an attack occurs on the club their request becomes my undoing.

I've fought their pull like the taught string of the bow.

What are some of your pet peeves?
Manners. People have lost touch with the simple please, thank you, your mouth shut as you eat, not sneezing on each other.
Where were you born/grew up at?
North of Toronto Canada. I’ve never left, but my heart has had pieces left in travels.
If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
With those I love. If I couldn’t be with them, my phone would run out of power as I talked to as many as I could.
What kind of world ruler would you be?
I’d love to say fair and just, but I can be persuaded like anyone. Not by shiny things, not about power, but about trusting and feeling it’s the best way. Finding out that you can be tricked is awful.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
A long drive. A hot tub. A tea. A book. Dumb movies.
How to find time to write as a parent?
My boys are old enough to give me my own space. Hubby has odd hours at work, so I stay up late to write.
Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
Quirky, dirty minded, optimistic, naive. Most important loving.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I knew to trust in the words. Letting the characters lead me. When the next story, then next rolled through. Their lives were more than a fleeting idea. That’s when I became a writer.
Do you have a favorite movie?
Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Broken Bows MC I’d love done! But….I think Crashed would be a great TV mini series. Just like all authors, we’d love to be seen and loved everywhere. LOL
What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
That sounds creepy. I expect women in long robes, walking through the woods with candles and chanting. Just kidding. None.
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Pitbull. I love hard, care deeply, need lots of love in return and would ask for devotion.
A signed paperback set of King, Rook and Pawn. (international)

Mother of two insanely (well trained) sarcastic men, wife to a dangerously smolder inducing grumble bunny (fireman), and friend to some amazing ladies (you know who you are). Thanks for reading, thanks for being a friend, and I look forward to meeting you in the future for drinks, danger and laughs.
Living in Northern Ontario, Canada, Kerri loves to read, travel and find new reasons to write you fantastic love stories. Remember, not all love is clean. Dark, light, angsty, sexually charged and twisted—that’s her genre.
It’s heart wrenching stories where the muse directs her. As the instrument of their lives, their stories are told piece by piece. You can hope for the good guy to win, but it won’t always happen. There's no guarantee of an HEA (happily ever after) or HFN (happy for now), because life doesn't always have those.
Enjoy the OMG's and tears. Tear your hair out, toss a book or two, because Kerri Ann wants for you to feel their pain too. As they live it, you absorb it on the pages.
