Forbidden attraction, heartbreaking betrayal and dangerous love seems to be a theme when your last name is Sokolov. For Viktor and Kostya their is no written in the stars, they carry a message tattooed on their hearts and it's as ugly as the bruises they carry on their bodies. Revenge stalks them like a shadow. Love is an emotion they can't afford, but are hopeless to live without. Saving the Enforcer begins with a mission and ends with a choice. Kostya and Maya are brought together by empathy and destined to be torn apart by hate. He's lost his memory, she's lost her heart. What happens when his memory returns? The most beautiful love stories come from life's ugliest moments. Leslie North tempts with danger, taunts with attraction and heals with love.
Saving Jasmine is the first book in the Satan's Bears series, and we are quickly thrown into the story. Maisy is twenty-four years old, responsible for her younger sister, Jasmine. Maisy is the one on the straight and narrow, Jasmine, the wild child. However, Maisy will work in a biker bar to get information on where her sister is. Stud in the leader of the bikers, and quickly claims Maisy for his own.
This was a very rough and ready story, almost raw in its execution. Although you get some information about the various groups, you don't get a lot, and that did leave me feeling like I had missed out. I found the characters to be rather weak and one dimensional, especially Stud. However, Maisy seemed happy with him, so I guess that's something.
This was a fast-paced story, so be prepared. If you are looking for a 'down and dirty' read, then this book may be just what you are looking for.

I loved this story. Sarah was afraid to live but she was a very caring person. In her job, she helped others with no thought to herself. Her past led to her quiet personality. She needed to meet someone like Finch and deserved a good man. Finch did not truly live either. He hid from his past. Together, Sarah and Finch realized what was important in their lives and became the people they were meant to be.
I received an ARC of this story through Litring, and this is my unsolicited review.
Faith is a side-kick for a powerful lobbyist Danny that was in some serious deals.
Faith tried to make a deal with the FBI only to have the FBI threaten jail time and wants her to give up Danny.
When all this is going on, the bad guy is trying to kill Faith and framed Danny.
All this is going well for the bad guy until the private investigator Lee Adams stepped in. Lee was paid by Danny to tail Faith. Lee thought it was a case of catching some unfaithful spouse only to find a sniper fired and klled the FBI Ken when he and Faith walked toward the safe house.
Now Faith and Lee were on the run. Faith didn't trust Lee and she wanted to get away from him. While doing that, alerted the bad guys and almost got them killed.
This is when the story starting to pick up. The first part is a bit standard. How these two person being thrown together going to interact with each other always make pretty good story. Now, this is not the typical romance stuff. There is something more, an almost sexual assault. And called it as that. I like character who was that wrong knew about it without much sugar coating it.
The story moved fast and it is pretty good from then on.
