Blurb
 
From the second you are born, the shaping begins.
Who you are.
Who you’ll become.
Where your life will lead.
What kind of heart you’ll have.
If you’ll be good, or bad.
From your very first breath, those around you influence everything about you.
I was influenced by the worst. By a monster. A cold hearted, soulless man.
But I got away.
I started fresh.
I reshaped myself. 
Only now, my past is catching up with me. 
My demons have returned.
And they’re back with a vengeance.
The only protection I have is a Motorcycle Club. 
I helped them. Now they’re helping me. 
With a large hit on my head, I’m hustled into the mountains with one very broody, very angry, very gorgeous biker.
He has a mission. A secret bigger than even mine. 
And he wants the blood of the monster after me.
He’s been assigned to protect me.
He gets on every nerve I have left.
The tension between us is high. 
And we’re stuck alone.
In the middle of the wilderness.
Things are about to get...interesting.

Another great read for us I have to say we are loving this authors books.I will say that this story is not for the faint of heart as the story contains strong violence,abuse and rape as long as murder and is very graphic with the details of those things making the book more gripping and having you glued to the pages as I wanted revenge for all these misdeeds right along with Koda and Charlie.
 
The story was heart wrenching as both Koda and Charlie have been left broken because of this man's evil deeds they both know him as Shanks who also turned out to be Charlie's father .As I kept reading and learned all that Charlie suffered and had gone through it was enough to leave your heart aching for her.I honestly don't know how she survived such brutally but ,though it all as bad as it was it just made her a survivor.
 
I need to go back to the beginning and read how Charlie actually got hooked up with this MC but , I get the gist that she did a good deed and now she has their protection at her back.Oh man these men are bunch of hot bad-asse's. They all are just so yummy...
 
I always pick a favorite character in the story I am reading and this time around mine is going to be Charlie.I loved Charlie from the onset this women was a bad-ass in her own right.Charlie was a loner with a tortured soul but, she had the capacity to love with one wholes heart whether with the friendships she forged or the man she desired.Charlie surprised me the most as I was amazed that her brutal life did not rob her of the capacity to love her childhood did not break her after all.I loved the camaraderie she had with the women in the MC as it was the only time she let herself go and enjoy life and that we got to see to her laugh and be happy even if they were stolen moments in time.
I loved that she was strong,loving,smart,feisty,had a smart mouth,had a sense of humor and was sexy and a backbone made of steel.I loved the chemistry her and Koda created even though he fought it most of the time. Koda & Charlie had a love hate relationship but, my thought from the onset of their attraction to one another is that they were just to alike and lived in constant pain and regrets. Koda and Charlie definitely had heat and sparks between them and then throw Mason into the mix and things were even hotter.
 
Koda, Omg! loved this bruting broken man from the onset of the story.You felt the pain this man lived in and his constant regrets at not being able to save his twin brother.It hurts even more when that brother is your own twin and your connected to them in ways others can't understand.The more I read about him the only thing I wanted to do is just go up and hug this man and console and inconsolable man.On the other hand I wanted to smack him more than once for his treatment toward Charlie especially knowing somewhat of what she suffered at the hands at that monster they call her father.I just wanted more than once to tell him to wake up before its to late Charlie can heal you and you her.
 
We loved it from cover to cover.The story had you engrossed  from the first few pages as the story was dark with danger lurking at every corner and held a great cast of characters for you to love.I love a story when two broken souls find one another and by loving each other put you on a path of healing and letting go of old ghosts and letting go of all those horrible things that kept you in the dark for so long and giving you a chance for happiness.
 
I am so looking forward to this series as it continues and will be reading the others in this series I missed.
 
5 stars from us
 
Personal note: Be sure to check out this authors other MC series if you liked them dark and dangerous, gritty,with hot men with sexual appetites that are hard and foul mouthed but, hotter then hell!

Another Incredible Meredith Duran romance
Sins of Lord Lockwood (Rules for the Reckless) - Meredith Duran

First and foremost, I'd like to thank the many fans who apparently asked for this book. I can't believe it wasn't all part of the plan. Since I have only been reading Meredith Duran and historical romance for a very short time, I'm so thankful she listened to your pleas!

 

I was absolutely riveted by Lockwood from the first introduction in The Duke of Shadows.  A strange, dark charm...I actually didn't realize till late in the book that her new release was to be about him, and I was so happy to hear it. 

 

Now onto the review of this book....

 

It's almost not fair. What kind of brilliance does it take for an author to understand the human condition, make us understand and empathize with both characters nearly in equal measure, hurt and hope with them, and fall in love with them? A Meredith Duran level of brilliance. I know I haven't been reading romance long, but having read #1, #5,#6 from this series I unreservedly say that she is the one of the best that romance has to offer. Her books are instant classics with their meaty plots, incredible but not miraculous character development, and beautiful words. (Which I'll share upon a second reading).

 

 

I am realizing my reviews of her books are far less than adequate. I intend to reread and more heavily review this rich examples of romance. I can tell you in so many ways this book pushes you to the edges of your capacity to understand and creates a little fissure that eventually becomes something you can identify with. Though I still favor Duke of Shadows, this is equally poignant. She's taken flawed characters and made us love them more for it. 

 

I shall stop with the gushing...well through writing, I still have a lot going on my up in my brain over this stunner of a book.

 

Thanks to Netgalley/publisher for the advanced copy of this book.

Twice Shy (Shelter #3)
Twice Shy: Book Three in the Shelter Series - Kate Sherwood

Since Micah has spent most of the previous two books in a constant drug haze, it was nice to get to know him once he's free of the drugs. He's smart and philosophical, and he's realistic about his situation and the people he hurt with his drug habit. He knows he's got to keep working the program, even the parts that seem silly to him, and he doesn't get defensive when he's called out for veering off the rules. He knows he's got a lot of bridges to rebuild and relationships to mention, especially with his found family who he betrayed in the previous book. So getting know the real him was great.

 

I also liked that he was just miraculously clean after a stint in rehab. He's still tempted, and he's aware of his triggers and his pitfalls. Being idle is bad for him, so when his fellow rehab friend Austin gets his brother to offer Micah a job, he jumps at it.

 

Jake, Austin's brother, is a down-to-earth guy trying to grow his landscaping business, but he also has to take care of his younger brother, whose recovery is not going as well as Micah's. And with all his issues with Austin, I really couldn't buy it that he'd jump so quickly into a relationship with Micah. Yes, he questions the wisdom of it several times, and this is one of the few times the mid-book breakup actually makes sense. And even though this relationship develops over a few weeks, as opposed to the first two books which were both over a handful of days, this felt more rushed somehow. Maybe because I didn't really feel the connection, because I kept wondering why Jake, or even Micah, would risk a relationship at this point in their lives, and Austin's just another complication.

Really, this is a massive spoiler. You've been warned.

(spoiler show)

And I kind of felt that killing Austin off was just a little too "easy" for getting rid of that complication. Obviously, not easy emotionally for the characters, but easy narratively for the author.

(spoiler show)

 

I'm not sure what to make of the gentrification plot that's introduced here and which will be resolved somehow in the next book, which makes this kind of a cliffhanger. I guess I'll wait and see that resolution before deciding on it - though reading the blurb for the next book, I can already guess where that's going to go.

 

The three little snippets or interludes at the end were more like teasers for the next book than anything else, fun to read but not necessary.

 

Oh, and no way is that African violet surviving. They're way too picky and finicky to grow under the best of circumstances.

"Anything is Possible" Reading progress update: I've read 6%. - wonderful stuff
Anything Is Possible - Elizabeth Strout

I'm barely thirty minutes into the eight and a half hour audiobook and the standard of the writing is outstanding. Elizabeth Strout's prose is effortlessly accessible while still engaging me in the nuances of an old man's perceptions and opinions, building his worldview with such deft strokes that I can't even see how's she doing it,

Book Tour: Megan's Munchkins
Megan's Munchkins (Megan's World Book 1) - Pamela Foland

Megan’s Munchkins was adorable. Though it did something some books rarely do. That is the fact we get to learn about kitten care though not like we are getting bogged down with information all the time like a kitten book.

It as if Megan want to prove to her parents that can take care of a pet. Though she makes mistakes along the way. We see she how she changes and that of her parents. She afraid to tell her parents that she found them.

Will Megan's fear over rule and or will she tell her parents. We see her determination and struggle to want to tell her parents. She doe take on the responsibility of the kittens. She know she want them to live and not die.

Her family does not know other then her brother. Though will she face and accept the mistakes and learn from them. You will need to find out by reading. Her parents see the changes but they get a little upset when they find out what she been hiding.
