• MY REVIEW •

TVD_Elena_ThumbsUp

Eeep. This is a perfect example as to why I am obsessed with dark mafia romance reads containing broody, excessively intimidating alpha heroes! AVOLAF had all the elements I love from this genre.

The premise was what initially had me wanting to read this story. From the first chapter, the protagonists had me intrigued. As it progressed, the storyline kept me engaged. There’s constant build-up and suspense, a torturous slow-burn between Gio and Emilia, and on top of that, their enemies are practically at their doorstep. Ugh. It’s one savagely edgy dark romance! 😍😍


“A better man would look away. A better man would let her go, but she’d made a fatal error; she’d drawn my attention.”


The Kiss of Death duet was the story that introduced me to Lovell, and the dark, all-out gritty mafia world she had created. This book not only lives up to the high standard that that duet had set, but it was a pleasant surprise to see the characters from said duet crossover into Gio’s and Emilia’s story. It’s honest-to-goodness like going back and visiting one of my favourite bookish worlds and seeing the gang together again. 🙌

If you haven’t read the Kiss Of Death duet, I think AVOLAF is a great introduction to their world, and the tight-knit circle of friends within. Not only will you be invested in Gio’s and Emilia’s developing relationship, but the supporting cast included will have you wanting to know their story too! The strong familial bonds amongst Gio and his friends are just as equal a highlight as the addictive push-and-pull romance.

Despite the slow burn, the storytelling is relatively fast-paced and action-packed. Lovell has created an atmosphere of uneasiness and danger surrounding Emilia and you can’t help but feel the dread right along with her. The desperation Emilia exudes has you sympathising her and the situation she’s inevitably been forced into by the lack of options she’s been presented with.

Please note: This book contains sensitive subject matter that may be triggering for some readers, such as graphic violence, domestic abuse, and sexual assault. Explicit mature content intended for readers 18+ only.

I always yearn for a strong, gutsy heroine in my reads as I find the majority never live up to the “fierce, independent heroine” tag they’re supposedly described to be. But Lovell doesn’t disappoint in providing one in Emilia. In a male dominated world, she may not be as physically powerful in comparison, but she’s not one to back down and take brutality either. It’s what makes her a likable character that earns both awe and respect. Her vulnerability is what makes her relatable and genuine, and quite a contrast to the confident, and overprotective men in her life.

Gio is your typical anti-hero who does some questionable things but within reason. It’s hard to turn your back on him — he’s merciless, calculating, danger personified, yet within their society’s Underbelly there’s also an ulterior motive to his power and reputation. I love grey characters and he’s one of a few within this world that I was instantly hooked on. He’s arrogant with a little bit of a cheeky side to him that’ll have you suppressing a giggle or two, not wanting to admit that his charm has gotten to you. 🙈🤭

A mafia romance with an arranged marriage/ forced proximity trope. It’s dramatic, angsty, and keeps you on your toes the entire time. It’s very character-driven and emotion-based. Told from dual POVs, Emilia and Gio are both fighting the sizzling chemistry between them, and as their relationship builds, the intensity only deepens. For lack of a better word, it’s hot! 🔥🔥🔥

As the plot thickens, you see a gradual shift in their relationship. It might seem small in the grand scheme of things but the scenes where they get snippets of each other’s characters when their defences are down only added more dimension and complements the dark and gritty side of their story.


“He was the key to my shackles, and it occurred to me that while I’d been trying to escape him to find freedom, perhaps he was that freedom.”


True to its genre, it has equal parts mafia to romance elements. The antagonists here are legit villains. Lovell has created a diverse range of characters, all of which evoke strong emotions out of you. The writing is high quality, with such vivid world-building that I couldn’t get enough of.

Read the books from the Underworld Kings, they say.

They’re all standalone dark, mafia romance books, they say.

Um well… 🤔😅

At the rate I was devouring this book, I was completely blindsided by this, and I know plenty who considers it to be a deal breaker, especially if there’s no warning in advance, so I have to mention that this book is NOT a standalone. It ends on a massive cliffhanger that had me 😩😭😭 and needing the sequel baaaadly!

But despite the savage ending that leaves you desperately hanging, I still absolutely, without a doubt recommend this book. Lovell has quickly risen to auto-buy author status and AVOLAF has fast become one of my favourite dark romances. I will read this one over and over again. It’s a must read!   

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐½

Thank you L.P. Lovell, the Underworld Kings team, and Candi Kane PR for the opportunity to read an advanced copy!

• BLURB •

Can a face from my past change my future?

When an invitation shows up out of the blue, I’m reminded of a promise I made to a girl twenty years ago and suddenly my heart is pounding.

Do I dare keep it?

She’s the one girl that ever meant a damn to me, and the one girl that got away. She walked out of my life once and it devastated me. Now life is giving me another shot, but if she walks out on me a second time I don’t think I’ll survive it.

Second chances don’t come around very often. Not for a one-percent biker like me. There are no do-overs in the MC life. Not when you’re staring down the barrel of a gun. Not when you’re deciding whether to pull the trigger.

But love? Maybe for once the luck of the Irish will shine down on me and give me a second chance with the one girl I let slip through my fingers.

Living with regret is a hard pill to swallow.

Living with the same regret twice? Impossible.

Sometimes facing your past can be the scariest thing you’ll ever do.

• MY REVIEW •

📎 Note: I originally read Green’s story in the Twisted Steel Anthology and this was my review. After the recent release of Green’s book (with the new content included), I reread it and have revised my review. 😊

Biker_CoupleRide

I’m a huge fan of James’ Evil Dead MC series and this story was a much anticipated one from a very much loved character: Green!

And lemme tell you… it doesn’t disappoint in regards to making me swoon more-so over Green! His story was short and sweet, and shows a completely different side to him that I hadn’t expected (in a good way)! For those who aren’t familiar with this Evil Dead MC brother, Green is considered the guy who doesn’t really take himself or anything too seriously. He’s warm fuzzies and funny to boot but was never into wanting to settle down. Until of course… his story! 😉

He’s older now, most of his fellow MC brothers have settled down and started families of their own, and it’s made him really think about his future. Opportunities to get his life in order come through in the way of moving back into his childhood home, and receiving an invitation to his high school reunion. The possibility of seeing Sara, his old high school girlfriend in this reunion has him reminiscing their time together and how their relationship ended all those years ago. It’s given him the mindset that seeing her in this reunion and catching-up could be their second chance to reconnect romantically.

When I initially read Green’s story in the anthology, I was instantly hooked but felt it was too short and hoped that when the time came for James to release his own book that she would extend his story further. Well… wish granted! 🙏 James included extra scenes with Green and his fellow club brothers, making this MC-lite romance story just a smidge more balanced out with MC elements and romance. The scenes that take place also sets up future stories that I am giddy and raring to read!

It’s addictive and I couldn’t read it fast enough, but I also think there were certain developments between Green and Sara that could’ve been more in-depth. But knowing James’ characters tend to make appearances and crossovers throughout her books, I’m not too phased as there’s a high probability we’ll get to see more of Green and Sara in the future.

I’m not always a fan of flashbacks to the past in storylines as it can get a bit tedious and slow the pacing down but in this case the flashbacks provided in Green’s story elevated the moments and gave his relationship with Sara some complexity. Despite the length of the story being on the shorter side, James managed to get me effortlessly invested in Green’s and Sara’s relationship. I was already a big fan of Green but Sara’s a completely new character. In a short span, I already found myself liking her personality and overall presence.

I do adore the fact that they had history. It makes their relationship believable, especially with how quickly things progressed in the story. Although it’s been twenty years, I love that they were so in-sync with one another like no time had passed.

– MC Romance
– High School Sweethearts
– Second Chance Romance

This was more MC-lite in comparison to the previous books from James’ Evil Dead MC series. I didn’t necessarily mind it because it certainly sets it apart from the other brothers’ stories where theirs had more darker plotlines. Green’s and Sara’s definitely centred more on the romantic side of this MC romance story. I love the reconnecting/ second-chance aspect and that it was Green who ended up having this trope — it provided him with more dimension from his usual light-hearted, jokey side that I constantly saw throughout in the series. He was always the comic relief amongst the brothers in the MC and whenever he made an appearance in any of the books his scenes were instant LOL moments, so his story was much anticipated. Overall, I’m happy to say it lived up to what I hoped it would be. It’s swoon-worthy. We get to learn more about Green outside of the club, and we get to meet the chick who snagged Green’s heart. It held my complete attention from beginning to end! #TeamGreen #TeamIrish 🍀

A sweet and relatively short MC-lite romance story you can easily read in one sitting, and will have you happy sighing by the end. The world James has created and expanded never ceases to amaze me, and this story is a fab addition to her series! It’s a must-read for her fans, and more specifically avid fans of her Evil Dead MC series. It can technically be read as a standalone but your experience with Green and his club would be so much more heighted if you read the series from the beginning.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

— BLURB —

Ezekiel “Carnage Creator” Ford.

Brother of the Royal Bastards MC.

Brutality incarnate.

A lone wolf.

The one they call in from the dark when they need shit done—and there’s no one
better for the job than me.

I have a tainted soul, oil black and hungry for bloodshed.

The world is a cesspit. I give zero fucks about it, and it gives zero fucks about me, so
when some mafia prick with a vendetta toward our club tries to torture me for sport,
the last person I expect to come to my rescue is a small female with a sassy attitude
and a death wish.

She’s a complication, burrowing her claws deep into the layers of my fucked-up
psyche.

Part of me wants to keep her there, drench her in the very essence of who I am until
she’s nothing but a weeping mess, craving the relief only I can give her.

She’s bringing my walls down, showing me maybe there’s some good in the world
after all. Until my brothers find us and it’s not me they’ve come for—it’s her.

She’s not who she’s been pretending to be.

She’s the devil dressed in the tight-ass skin of a bitch I’ve become addicted to.

I don’t care who has to bleed for me to keep feeding the habit:

My brother.

Our enemies.

Her.

If she’s not in my bed and on the back of my bike, she’s not going to be on anyone’s.

GENEVIEVE

I’ve never played by the rules. Women don’t run gangs, yet I’m the leader of the biggest one in Liverpool. No one knows I’ve stepped into my father’s shoes and that I’m making changes. Taking on the Royal Bastards MC is not a good idea, but I want the wealth and power they have. I want my family’s legacy to live on long after I’m gone. Doing that means making difficult decisions. I didn’t expect the Royal Bastards to retaliate so savagely.

Now, I’m prisoner of their President, a man who goes by the name of Mouth. He’s dangerous, vicious and he wants to make my father pay for crimes I’ve committed. Can I survive his wrath?

MOUTH

This prissy woman is a thorn in my side, but she’s the only way to exact my revenge. Crossing the Bastards is an instant death sentence, and when I’m done with Genevieve, her father is going to beg for mercy I won’t deliver. I’m not someone to cross without retribution and mine will be swift. I will destroy The Dockland Gang and every person associated with them, including Desmond’s pretty little daughter. She’s a doll I want play with and I will break her down piece by piece, because now that she’s in my control I’m never letting her go.

*Warning : Contains adult content, reading age 18 +. Graphic violence and dark emotional scenes that may trigger some readers.

• MY REVIEW •

A bittersweet ending to the Turf Wars series. I’ve enjoyed them all, as each one has been such entertaining reads. Clash of the Nannies is a secret/ nanny romance with a bit of a love triangle twist.

What made this book for me was Hugh. Aw swoon! 😍😍 He is probably the sweetest biker/ hero from the entire series, hands down! As the story progresses, you steadily see Hugh’s character growth from a biker with no commitments to becoming a responsible adult needing to take care of another human being.

Supernatural_Dean_HoldingBaby

Maggie is not your conventional nanny. She’s an opinionated heroine and she will put her two cents in for any situation. What made Maggie relatable to me is she’s a heroine of Asian descent—and to be more specific, one of a Filipino background. She represented some cultural diversity not just within this story but within the Turf Wars world, albeit she’s only partly Asian and her mixed heritage doesn’t play a huge part in her character, but it’s still a rarity (at least for me) to find a Filipino character in any of my reads, especially one who plays a main character.

The storyline also broaches on serious subject matters such as social standing, prejudices, and bullying. The experiences Maggie is confronted with are relatable, real-life situations, and although these topics are sensitive, especially for those who can relate, Jewel has written-in determined characters and has tried to keep the overall atmosphere as lighthearted to ensure it doesn’t become too dramatic or deflating.

Overall, another amusing rom-com with minimal MC elements in the background. Just like the previous books in the series, it was told solely from the heroine’s perspective. It’s a relatively short read with fast-paced storytelling, and because of that reason the conclusion ended quite abruptly with relatively quick resolutions (considering it’s the final book in the series). There are plot points that were left unanswered, and unexpected new ones introduced last minute that left me feeling a little taken aback. It was a lot to process in a short amount of time. 😱

I’m not a big fan of the ending, in general. Whilst bonds and friendships were constantly developing and expanding with each new book in the series, with this book it culminated with strong “end of an era” vibes that had me a little taken aback. As I mentioned earlier, it really is bittersweet.

However, putting the ending aside along with the quick resolutions, I did enjoy the growing friends-to-lovers relationship between Hugh and Maggie. It’s a nice change of pace from the enemies-to-lovers/ hate-to-love storylines from the previous books. It centres around Maggie’s day-to-day duties as a nanny in a high society environment. It has great balance of romance, family, and friendship within the storyline that I thought were real winning elements.

I recommend the entire series. Although it’s MC-lite, I honestly didn’t mind that the club was the background as it gave way to each of the hero’s personal life almost outside of it. You still get hot bikers without the dark MC elements. It’s a great series for readers who want to slowly transition into MC romance reads without having delve into the grittiness just yet.

Pop Goes The Biker by Bella Jewel

Original post from my IG @booksofthemuggleborn

• BLURB •

I’m trouble with a capital P

I know what I want in life, and I go for it.

Nobody stands in my way, not even the big group of bikers who caught me red-handed stealing from them.

I’ll do as they ask.

I’ll be their good little slave.

I’ll make their money and pay off my debt.

I’ll also make them think twice.

Think twice about holding me.

Think twice about isolating me.

Think twice about the moment they decided keeping me was worth more than the trouble I bring.

And oh, do I bring some trouble.

Their little club won’t know what hit them.

My name is Poppy, and I’m a bad, bad girl.

Hell follows me, and the devil himself won’t mess with me.

They’ll wish they left me alone.

Oh, indeed…

Pop goes the biker.

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Oh. Em. Geeeeee! 😍😍😍 With each new addition, this series just keeps getting better and better. Pop Goes The Biker was such a fun, entertaining-as-hell romance story! I read it in one sitting and it left such an impression on me that I kept going back hoping if I reread it enough times it’d eventually get out of my system. FYI: It took a little while. 

ChrisHemsworth_Smile

Each book so far has some level of hate-to-love/ enemies-to-lovers storyline between its protagonists, but this one just had an extra level of zing! The banter between Poppy and Beckett were off-the-charts amusing! 😂

This series as a whole is easy on the MC aspect but from all the books, this one features it the most as a big part of the storyline centres around Beckett’s club. I thought it was an amazing contemporary rom-com with hot bikers and occasional “club business” present.

It’s another relatively quick read that I wish had a few more chapters just so it didn’t feel like it concluded abruptly in the end. But other than that, I was completely hooked and giggling my ass off the entire time! Poppy and Beckett were locked in a fiercely heated, yet entertaining battle of wits that only made their chemistry all the more authentic. It can get angsty at times and it was verging on a slow burn romance, but the build-up only served to increase the intensity between the two as the story progressed.

There are a couple of twists and turns, and the entire story is told solely from Poppy’s point of view. It’s a bit of shame we don’t get Beckett’s as well but honestly, once I settled into the story I got over the fact fairly quickly.

If you like sunshine x grumpy/ hate-to-love romance tropes, my gosh this book will satisfy that craving! The cast of characters are all so likable— Poppy is spunky, with a strong independent personality. Beckett is a bit of serious sourpuss but it’s adorable seeing him get all riled up (and it doesn’t hurt that he’s described looking fairly similar to Thor; the God of Thunder himself)! *waggles brows* 😍🤤

There’s already a sweet little world-building in place that expands with each book, so I recommend you read all the books in the series in publishing order to get the full Turf Wars experience. They can technically be standalone stories, but trust me when I say if you read them from the beginning, by the time you get onto this book, you’ll be itching to know Poppy’s and Beckett’s story!

You can expect to see solid comraderies in this world that added extra oomph and amusement to the storyline— one with the club members, and the other with the women who’ve formed their own girl gang of sorts. It’s total comfort read, with an overall easy-going storyline. It does contain adult themes and minor darkish content, but in my opinion, nothing triggering. However, if cheating and/or love triangles are a big no-no for you, then maybe give this one a miss.

There are certain plots within the story that can be a sensitive subject for some readers as it concerns making one’s own personal choices in life and the protagonists debate about it. There’s a good chance you won’t agree with a lot of their actions. They can be reckless and it shows. They go through emotional turmoil and life-altering situations, and in my opinion it could’ve been a little more in-depth, and at times major groveling was needed yet it was otherwise lacking. Sigh. But this particular topic, although constantly up for debate in our society, has also made this story relatable. It added a sense of realness in an otherwise fluff-adjacent romance story.

Overall, effortless to follow and most certainly a mood-boosting read. It’s another great addition to the series. I’ve read a handful of Jewel’s books, and so far I’ve found her writing style favourable, so I’d recommend giving this one a try. It’s a series where the fun, playful, and vibrant covers match the stories within.
