Keys To My Cuffs (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC, #4) by Lani Lynn Vale Review
Keys To My Cuffs (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC) (Volume 4) - Lani Lynn Vale

You’re the Keys

Loki’s life was a lie. Everything he’d done for the last eight years was under an assumed name for the Benton Police Department. He’d lied, cheated, and stolen all in the name of the law. He wore himself thin, and not even the open road could take away the pain anymore. Then his little next door neighbor moved in, and suddenly he had a reason to get out of bed every morning. Except he was an officer of the law, and a member of a prominent motorcycle club in the area, The Dixie Wardens MC. Neither of which she could deal with.

To My

It wasn’t the scars that covered her new neighbor’s body that scared Channing. It was the badge. The fact that he belonged to The Dixie Wardens MC was only icing on the cake. She should be running away as fast as her legs could carry her. But there’s something about Bryce ‘Loki’ Rector. Something that eased the unreasonable fear she felt every time she came into contact with something that reminded her of her past.

Cuffs

They say love isn’t easy, and it definitely isn’t for the two of them. Loki has to learn to feel again, and Channing has to learn to live. Their road isn’t an easy one by any means, but Loki makes two promises. One, he’ll never let anything hurt Channing again. Two, it’d be over his dead body that he’d ever let her go.

 

 

Review

 

This is the lighter side of the motorcycle club sub genre with the bikers all being civil servants.

 

There is good humor here and the epilogue is particularly funny but I never settled into this book.

 

The hero and heroine are hurting and they hurt each other. I never see the kind of safe place I long for them both so the romance doesn't end up working for me.

Crossroads
Crossroads (Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club... Crossroads (Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club) - Chantal Fernando

I think this is going to be the last book of this series that I read (if it's not already the last book of the series). I started off with high hopes for this book but the more that I read the more disappointed in it I became. 

 

This book very much follows the formula of the previous books in the series. There starts off with some big dangerous thing or event that draws the characters together. Once that gets resolved, fairly too quickly, our couple spends some happy time together until something stupid years then apart again. In the beginning of the series this worked for me but now I kinda hoped for something different.

 

This book is for you if you don't mind instalove. I, however, find it unrealistic and annoying. Both characters experienced instalove but I do have to say that Jo was a little bit less annoying about it than Ranger.

 

I was hoping for more from this and was disappointed to find just the same old story. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Review: Reaper’s Fire (Reapers MC #6) by Joanna Wylde
Reaper's Fire (Reapers Motorcycle Club) - Joanna Wylde

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Reaper's Fire 

 Reapers MC #6  
 Joanna Wylde  
 Contemporary Romance  
 Berkley  
 August 9th 2016  
 eBook/Paperback  
 384  
 Library  
 

 

It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Fall...

 

The club comes first.

 

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.

 

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

 

I’m coming for you, Tinker.

 

Soon.

Reaper’s Fire is book six in the Reapers MC series by Joanna Wylde. 

 

I’m not sure what has drawn me into this series. Maybe it’s the sexy covers or maybe it’s the hard core bicker men or maybe it’s the issues each couple go through or the passion that sets the sheets on fire. It’s probably all of it combined.

 

Falling in love was not on Gage’s agenda; especially when he’s undercover protecting his club, but he just can’t resist falling for his landlady, Tinker.

 

Tinker aww man her husband/ex-husband is an ass. I felt for her and what she went through. No one should have to go through what she did alone. Gage never expected to find a women that would make him think about settling. He loves his club, it’s his life, and he has and will do anything for them. 

 

The sexual tension was strong between Gage and Tinker. When he finally tells her the truth and claims her as his property; well it’s intense. The chemistry was hot and steamy between them. Theirs also some drama in the town and Tinker’s best friend was great. She added the comic relief. 

 

Their where a few things that bothered me: 

 

– We don’t get closer on the bad guy and his sister. 
– We don’t get closer on Tinkers husband/ex-husband.
– I thought that Tinker could have had a kid of her own. We have procreation options available to us. The end was nice, but with how powerful the opening was, I felt sad that she didn’t get to experience the joy of caring her own child.
– I wasn’t fully on board with what Gage felt he had to do for his club. I get it and think of it as undercover work an agent or cop would do, but eww.
– Also from the last book it’s mentioned that Gage got cut up and I was hoping we would get that scene in Reaper’s Fire, but we don’t. It’s the authors book, so they can add or not add stuff, but I was just hoping it would be in here, so I was just a little disappointed we didn’t get that scene. 

 

Reaper’s Fire delivers action, suspense, and club business. It was a fun read. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!

Horse (Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club #6) by Candace Blevins Review
Horse (Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Book 6) - Candace Blevins

Horse is one of the first non-wolf shifters to be patched into the RTMC after the rule change. He’s a Grizzly Bear, and his old pawnshop has become the MC’s new gun store in a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Gabby is a rabbit shifter with a complicated history. Rabbits live in Faerie, but her parents chose to escape to the human realm so they could be together. Tragedy struck twice though, and she was taken to The Summerlands at fourteen to be raised by extended family. She’s grown now and has chosen to come back, even though it means she’s alone in this world.

Bears are loners who are used to getting their way. Rabbits are sexual, social creatures who need a wide variety of partners in their lives if they go outside their own species.

And Gabby’s past is on a trajectory to keep her from the future she wants.

 

Review

 

I really didn't need to discover a new author to read but I did. Bear shift catnip. Also, rabbit shifter. I love me an odd pairing. 

 

In some ways, I want to resist this book because it seems to formulaic and taking advantage of trends rather than be written out of imagination or love of the genre.

We have a motorcycle club. Its erotic. The hero is a bear shifter. He fights.

 

However, even though I think its fair to say there is too much going on in this book and more time could have been spent with the leads, its a great story of crazy sauce that works and is good.

 

The writing is very good and distinct. The characters are will developed with interesting backstories (the heroine more than the hero). The hero is kind and awesome. The heroine comes into her own and we have a wonderful opposites attract trope.

The world and culture building is excellent with a great cast. The plot walks the perfect line of conflict and twists without overstepping.

 

I love the ownership of the rabbit and bear sexuality and the complete comfort with a non monogamous (rooted in DNA and culture) soul mate kind of love.

 

They are wonderful couple and the love story was a super hot and tender delight.
