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: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“No knight in shining armor is coming to rescue me. If I want to get out of this revolting place, I’ll have to save myself. He was supposed to be my escape, but now he has my heart under lock and key.” -Isabella

TREZ-

I’ve climbed my way back from the bottom rungs of the hell I once lived. I’ve treated the symptoms, my drug addiction, but have yet to forgive myself for the cause. I’ve buried it six feet under, but I know it’s there haunting me. I killed my mom, even if it was an accident.

Now it’s time to prove myself to my father and my club, the Royal Bastards MC. He put me in charge of a deal with the Hell’s Bandits MC. Now I must prove I can handle the responsibility. I must convince them I can do it. But can I convince myself that I deserve it?

That won’t matter, if I can’t even manage the deal. A sexy little vixen whispers secrets of betrayal and suddenly the problems keep piling up. She’ll give me the information I need in exchange for her escape. She has me questioning everything and wondering if I’ll be willing to free her from my grasp when the time comes. Is she the thing I so desperately need to finally be rid of my demons?

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Nicole James just keeps on surprising me with how effortless she changes up not only her storylines but her bikers as well. Trez is the epitome of a badass biker who is a true-blue gentleman! Chivalry isn’t dead, folks! What sets him apart from all other bikers from other MC romance stories is how forthcoming and accepting he is of his feelings when the right woman comes along. There’s no game-playing… no ifs, buts, or maybes. He makes it so easy to fall head over heels for him! 😍

SOA_Jax_Fairytale

Although a relatively quick read, the storytelling itself was well-paced and immediately had a sense of danger lurking right from the very start. It set the atmosphere for the entirety of the story. There may have been plenty of lighthearted moments throughout, but the feeling of uneasiness and waiting for the other shoe to drop was always lingering in the background. I loved it— it’s a meaty romance story with an angsty, suspenseful vibe.

I initially had a different perception of Trez in Club Princess (book one) but he has grown so much as person since, and this book is a definite redemption story filled with healing, acceptance, and new beginnings.

There’s a nice balance of romance, friendship, and MC elements that made this story so in-depth. It’s action-packed, never a dull moment, and just like the first book in the series, the story is told through multiple POVs, which is a refreshing change from the usual dual perspectives you see in a lot of romance books.

Both Trez and Isabella are such likable characters who haven’t had it easy in life. I was emotionally invested in their stories and my heart went out to both of them the second their backstories were shared. The slight slow-burn development of their relationship was one of the sweetest things about this book and made their connection all the more genuine.

This story is gritty at times and broaches on subject matters that maybe triggering for some readers. Please note it contains matters such as drug abuse/ addiction, attempted suicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, graphic violence and abuse— all causing physical, emotional, and mental scarring. Intended for readers 18+ only. 

Nicole James is so consistent with her writing— it’s always effortless to follow, she always manages to lure you in by the first chapter with her intriguing characters, and by the end of the book with the little teaser she provides you’re itching to get your hands on the next one. 😱 Climbing The Ranks is an exceptional second book in Nicole’s RBMC Durango, CO Chapter. I enjoyed reading it! The world-building has certainly become more complex as more characters are introduced and we get to see more and more of the club. It can be read as a standalone novel but I highly recommend reading Club Princess first as it show Trez’s history in detail and gives you a better insight of how far Trez’s relationship with his family has progressed since.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐½

By Sin I Rise: Part One by Cora Reilly

• BLURB •

Maddox – Mad Dog – White hates everything the name Vitiello stands for, after he witnessed his father and his men getting butchered by the Capo of the Italian mob in their territory.

Raised by his uncle, the president of the Tartarus MC, Maddox is destined to follow in his footsteps. Now their chapter is on the rise again, but for their ultimate triumph they need to destroy the Vitiello empire. And what better way to do it than to steal the spoilt Vitiello princess and break her piece by piece until her father begs for mercy.

Known as the spoilt princess of New York, Marcella Vitiello grew up in a golden cage. If your father is the most feared man in New York, people gift you with reverence.

Destined to marry the boyfriend approved by her father, Marcella is sick of being treated like an untouchable porcelain doll.

She resents the life forced upon her by her family until everything she took for granted is ripped from her. Where she’s now, her name doesn’t bring awe, only pain and humiliation.

If you’ve grown up in a high castle, the fall is all the deeper.

Sins of the fathers have a way of catching up…who’s going to bleed for them?

** This book is part one of Maddox’s and Marcella’s story. 

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Five chapters in… 

Me: “Growl? Where’s Growl? Someone get me Growl!”

(He would’ve ended it all, right there and then!)

😜 I’m just joshing. But I’ve never been one to mince words or sugarcoat my thoughts in my reviews no matter how much I adore an author or the fictional world they’ve brought to readers, and I’m not about to start now. Please remember this is my honest opinion and experience from reading this book. If you find mine are different from yours, please be respectful and don’t take offence. Not everyone’s opinions are going to be the same. ✌❤

I’m in the minority here by saying Marcella Vitiello was one heroine a was never eager to read about. From her brief appearances in past books when she was a child, utterly spoiled and bratty constantly had me eye-rolling. So when it was announced that the first book in Cora’s next gen series would begin with Marcella’s story, well, you can just imagine my thrill.

But when it was known that it would be a mafia meets MC (Motorcycle Club) story, it did have me perking up with interest. Mafia romance and MC romance are like my bread and butter as far as romance genres go. Add in the anti-hero biker, who’s also an enemy to the mob? Finally, FINALLY I was intrigued as fuck! 😅

So now that I’ve finished reading part one, what did I think of it??

MeganFox_Hug

With its well-paced storytelling, and multiple points of view, it was gradually winning me over… until it all came to a staggering halt. 🙈 Whilst there were plenty of things I did enjoy about this book, I’m not going to lie, there were also plenty of things that rubbed me the wrong way too.

It can be considered new adult, but make no mistake it’s dark themed romance. Before I get to the nitty gritty of my review, I must mention that this story does contain sensitive subject matter that may be triggering for some readers, such as graphic/ gruesome violence, kidnapping, attempted rape, and animal cruelty. Definitely for mature readers 18+ only. Please keep in mind before you start it.

Before this book, there was very little detail about Maddox, his family, and the Tartarus MC other than what we’ve seen mentioned by Luca Vitiello. There’s a gripping little backstory included that, in my opinion set the atmosphere for the rest of the book and a full understanding of Maddox’s mindset.

It’s character driven and a lot of the situations that transpired were emotion-based. There’s no doubt that there’s a strong attraction between Maddox and Marcella but as the story progressed I felt there wasn’t enough genuine development between them. They’re both put in difficult positions and it constantly tested their relationship. Some big events go down and the actions of these protagonists was ultimately what resulted in my overall conflicted feelings of this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first half. I was completely absorbed and lusting after the little moments between the two. But looking at the bigger picture, their relationship’s choppy. They go through the motions but I didn’t see any real substance out of it. And if I had to make comparisons with other couples from this world, their relationship is lacklustre. The romance was alright but it was hard to believe the depth of their love with the timeframe they had together. It wasn’t insta-love but it wasn’t exactly a gradual romantic development either.

I wish I could say after reading this story that Marcella eventually grew on me. There was a moment or two I sympathized for her, but it was tough to like her as I didn’t agree with a lot of her actions. She’s a difficult character to get to know or connect with because she’s constantly projecting an image and created a standard for herself that I didn’t even think was wholly necessary. Aria and Luca have always been one of my favourite couples but I question how they ended up with a daughter like Marcella? 🤔😌

Maddox is one of the main highlights of this book. I love the complexity of his story and his character, and I was easily invested in seeing how his story would progress. I often wondered what some of the negative effects the Mafia may have had on people outside of their world and Maddox is a perfect example of the blowback. Sigh. I’m just going to say it— he deserves better. 

There’s quite a few secondary characters included that helped elevate the world-building. The different dynamics added dimension and was interesting to see the contrast between Maddox’s and Marcella’s respective worlds. The initial premise was mafia meets MC, and whilst there was strong mafia presence, I had hoped to see more elements from the MC side. There’s not a lot of light-heartedness as it’s a pretty gritty storyline, but appearances from certain characters provided calming moments to break up some of the tension and seriousness of the situation.

All in all, it’s not what I had expected or how I envisioned the story would play out but nevertheless I was still gripped from start to finish. Although this is only part one, and Maddox’s and Marcella’s story is unfinished, this book doesn’t completely end on a cliffhanger (if that makes sense). Let’s just say if the story happened to have ended here, I would’ve been content with the open-ended conclusion.

Buuuuut in saying that… since I have mixed feelings about this first part of the story, I am curious to see how it will all conclude in the second part. I’m hoping to see build-up, some in-depth development, and more maturity out of the characters.

Cora’s writing as always is easy to follow. The intrigue around her characters and their story is instantaneous that it’s hard to put down and By Sin I Rise was no different. It was refreshing to see some new faces introduced and expand from what is already an existing and vivid world-building.

It may not have ended up being one of my favourites from Cora’s mafia books, but I still think it has positive aspects and a lot of potential. It’s an intriguing introduction to the Sins of the Fathers, and it’s cool (and some getting used to) seeing the original characters I fell hard for in the Born In Blood Mafia Chronicles somewhat pass the torch to their children. I am officially ancient. 💀

Fans of Cora’s and of her mafia world will want to read this one. Romance readers who are still relatively new to this world, I recommend you read Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles first before starting this one. I don’t have any triggers but I must admit there were certain scenes from this book that I wasn’t prepared for and totally bawled my eyes over.

You can expect some plot twists, suspense, and if like me, a good hearty cry. If you like dark mafia romances with a forced proximity, captor/captive romance trope, give this one a try.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐¾

• BLURB •

I always felt different.

Like I never quite fit.

The moment I found the club, it felt like home, even though it was 1600 miles from Jersey.

As the joint SAA for the Houston Defiance MC, my job is to be protective. Keep my brothers at the club safe—be the first line of defense against those who seek to do us harm.

But what happens when those who defend suddenly need protection?

She upholds the law—the club lives by their own.

Never a good mix.

The pull to her is volcanic, seismic, earth shattering.

But there’s darkness surrounding her.

An evil lurking in the shadows.

With an already high enemy count, more mount up every day.

But maybe we can’t see the danger rumbling just below the surface.

When it erupts, all hope might be lost.

When all else fails, will Defiance rise through the ash?

From USA Today Bestselling Author K E Osborn comes the highly anticipated fifth book in the Houston Defiance MC Series.

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Osborn has created another couple in the Houston Defiance MC who sizzles with chemistry. Their romance was angsty with a whole lot of slow-burn build-up that I was instantly anxious to see play out!

Biker_CoupleRide_Plaid

This is the fifth book in the series and I am just as hooked in the Houston Defiance MC as I was when I read the first book. Texas’ and Fin’s relationship was a gradual build-up long before their story was told in Protective.

It’s a sweet, somewhat of a friends-to-lovers story with Texas surprisingly being the biggest sweetheart from all the guys from the MC. I loved that he had the image of an all out brawny alpha, yet had the biggest heart. 😍 It was refreshing to see an alpha type hero who wasn’t pushy. And Fin stayed true to how she’s been portrayed in the previous books—determined, independent, with a fierce attitude!

The first half of the book was well-paced as Texas’ and Fin’s budding relationship gradually heated up, but the story quickly takes on a faster pace in the second half as situations start to amp up around them. Whilst I felt like there was an organic progression in Texas’ and Fin’s relationship, there was an overload of events that transpired in the book that, in my opinion, made the overall story busy. A lot of things happen in this book, some of which flowed naturally with the current situation that Texas, Fin and the MC found themselves in, but others just seemed like they came out of nowhere.

The first half of the book totally hooked me in and I was loving the little banters and moments between Texas and Fin. But putting aside their romance, I felt like the storyline split into different directions along the way leaving the second half of the book underwhelming. Situation after situation popped up only for it to be just as quickly resolved that I was having difficulty connecting with all. It lost the flow along with some of the swooniness from Texas’ and Fin’s relationship as it felt like they were put on the back burner whilst the MC dealt with said issues.

This story however, broaches on one particular topic, that in all honestly I never realized existed, and I admire Osborn for putting some light to a matter that may not be familiar to other readers either. The characters in this series all have their demons, tragic pasts, and issues they deal with on the daily. With Texas, you see the struggles he’s been dealing with for most of his life and how it affects him as a person.

What I like about Texas and Fin as a couple is there’s a sweet balance in their dynamic. They’re complete opposites, yet they connected with each other effortlessly and it didn’t come off stilted. The support, love, care, and admiration they have for one another is evident, long before anything romantic happened. So, when the time came when they decided to take a chance on their relationship, it felt believable.

Besides the romance in the forefront, like the previous books in this series, the addition of the secondary characters heightened the world-building and overall experience of the story. The comradery, family-like dynamic within the MC is one of my highlights. There’s a genuine brotherhood amongst these fictional characters that truly made me feel emotionally invested in them all.

(One secondary character in particular stood out and if it wasn’t for his added comic relief and all around cheery personality, I don’t think this story would be the same). 🙌

Whilst you can technically read each book as standalone, there are lingering storylines in the background that interconnect these books. I would recommend you start from the beginning of the series to really grasp the entirety of their world, although Osborn does a thorough job of giving you the gist of each couple so you’re up to scratch with everyone’s stories so far without having reading any of the previous books beforehand.

There’s equal parts romance to the MC elements. If you enjoy the angst of slow burn romances, then you’re in for a treat with Texas and Fin as they keep you on tenterhooks. If you haven’t read any of Osborn’s MC books, I should point out there can be some dark elements. Her stories (at least within this series) contain matters that may be triggering for some readers. Please note, Protective includes triggers such as graphic violence, displays of intimidation resulting in death threats and stalking, and domestic abuse (displaying the emotional and mental affects it has to those who’ve experienced it). It contains strong mature themes and sexual content intended for readers 18+ only.

Protective is a rollercoaster ride with a lot of twists and turns. It’s unpredictable and at times can be eccentric. Some plotlines I found realistic, whilst at other times a little out there. What I did find consistent and comforting where the relationships (and what I always look forward to seeing from each book in this series). For the most part, the atmosphere of the story was grim and edgy, but Osborn included some well placed light-hearted moments to break up some of the tension. You’re on the edge of your seat from the get-go, and whilst the second half wasn’t what I had expected in terms of plot lines, I still found the overall experience of reading this book enjoyable.

If you’ve read the previous books in the series, then this one is not to be missed, especially since Texas and Fin seemed like a long time coming. It’s suspenseful, action-packed, and like the others, will keep you reading until the end!

And speaking on the ending…. *eep!* 🙊

Osborn’s writing is so favourable! From the books I’ve read so far of hers, not a single one has failed in keeping me intrigued. I’m down for her characters, the stories she comes up with, and the developments. They’re complex and yes, they can be gritty at times, but she has striking characters who are relatable, and her stories are hearty romantic suspense that keeps you guessing. I love that whilst their great swoon-worthy escapism, there’s always substance in her romance stories.

All the books in the Houston Defiance are must reads, and Protective is a great addition to this ever-expanding MC. I’m looking forward to reading the next one!

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Seeking Shadows by K.E. Osborn

Original post from my IG @booksofthemuggleborn

• BLURB •

What if the woman I fell for was in love with someone else? The man who claimed her heart is my VP, the same man I need to respect and follow his orders. But now that I’m no longer a prospect, it’s difficult to find my place. What if I don’t want to play by the club rules anymore?

But then again, what if while I’m seeking shadows, I find something I wasn’t prepared for? And the darkness leaves me fighting for everything I thought I’d never have…

Seeking Shadows is a part of The Royal Bastards MC Author Collaboration and is book three in the Tampa, FL Series.

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Well. This was one a hell of an introduction to Osborn’s RMBC, Tampa FL Chapter! 🔥😍 I’ve read a few books from another one of her MC romance series but Seeking Shadows was my introduction to this RBMC one. It’s the third book in the series but it was honest to goodness written with such detail that I didn’t feel like I was missing any vital information by not having read books 1 and 2 beforehand. You’re given the gist of the characters and/ or couples from the previous books so you’re relatively up to scratch with their relationships and overall group dynamic.

So, if any readers out there interested in reading this book but concerned that it’s already the third one… don’t be. I can without a doubt tell you, you can read Seeking Shadows without having read the first two.

SebStan_DrinkInBar

Now. Let’s get onto the man of the hour — Dash! *phew* Ok… when I first started this story and quickly realized Dash was pining for another MC brother’s ol’ lady… I was immediately questioning how this story would play out. I’ve read countless MC romances to know that club members don’t mess around with their brothers girlfriends, wives, or ol’ ladies. I seriously thought, “Geez! Please don’t tell me Dash ends up having an affair with this chick!” 😱🙈🙈

Needless to say… the story quickly turned a corner and not only was I breathing easier, but I couldn’t sit still from the unexpected turn of events. *waggles eyebrows*

This was steady-paced storytelling that I was all in for. I was loving the gradual build-up and story development. With dual points of view from both protagonists, it wasn’t difficult to get invested in both their personal stories. One thing that stood out to me about Dash in particular was that his story began with him as a prospect for the RBMC. Seeing him still at the stage of doing the club’s grunt work, steadily working his way up to be a full-fledged member— it showed plenty of character growth, that, along with a level of maturity. Right from the beginning he was already such a likable character (and with the awkward love triangle situation, you easily feel for him), but as the story progresses and he slowly realizes what he wants, you see the gradual change in him as he starts considering things in his life differently.

Besides the likable hero/heroine in this story, I was sucked into their slow-burn romance. I couldn’t get enough of their quirky, lighthearted friendship before anything romantic came about. The constant banter and comical ribbing added the necessary lightness to what was an overall dark, suspenseful romance. Their relationship organically developed and seemed so genuine to witness. They went through some relatable and realistic emotional hurdles that not only made their relationship stronger in the long run, but made me back them more as a couple!

Not going to lie, whilst most of the secondary characters in this book were likable enough, there were a couple of them that I just wasn’t a fan of at all, and never grew to like in the end either. They certainly played roles in providing another layer to this already action-packed story, but in my opinion, they were just as irritating (if not more) than the actual antagonists! Ugh. And to be honest, I was expecting better from them. I’m just glad Dash wasn’t having any of it! ✊😅

Halfway through the storyline took a surprising twist that I admit was a little out there. Whilst all the plot points interconnected in the end, I wasn’t completely sold on this particular part of the storyline, and in all honesty the book lost some of its appeal on me.

But in saying that, I thought both protagonists were brilliant characters, and I was completely gripped by their angsty relationship. I’m fist pumping air that the heroine is no pushover and that she’s a firecracker of a character! I liked that Dash is a flawed character with insecurities, but he’s also one full of heart and understanding. I respect his willingness to not only make adjustments, but once he sets his mind to something, he’s committed.

There were a lot of things happening in this story but it wasn’t overwhelming in the slightest. I liked the fact that there were a variety of settings within the story which only made the world-building all the more appealing.

Seeing the different group dynamics within, especially where Dash, his heroine, and their families were concerned was some of my favourite scenes to read (besides all the banter between the protagonists). 😜😄

As I mentioned earlier, this is a dark, suspenseful MC romance. It contains certain subject matters that may be triggering for some readers. Not only does it contain mature sexual content, it has strong, graphic violence, domestic abuse, kidnapping, and it also broaches the topic of suicide. Audiences 18+ only.

From my experiences with Osborn’s other books, I’ve always found her writing style to be consistently effortless to follow, with stories and characters I can easily get into— Seeking Shadows is no different. This book was unputdownable and an addictive MC romance that I would recommend to fellow dark romance readers. There’s a nice balance of romance and MC elements throughout. The character growth, the romance, and seeing the family dynamics were the absolute highlights in my opinion. You’ll find unpredictability and some gripping, hold-your-breath type scenes in this book that I always hoped to see in my MC romance books.

Although this is part of a series, the ending concluded in way where you’re not left with unanswered questions (at least not where Dash and his heroine are concerned). I know I was left feeling quite content with the way things ended in this book. It’s a swoony, taking-chances romance story weaved through a twisted, gritty underworld.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Soul Sisters: Charlotte by Nicole James

booksofthemuggleborn_charlotte
Original post from my IG @booksofthemuggleborn

•••

• BLURB •

Rocker Charlotte Justice longs to escape her hectic life. Her estranged twin sister, Scarlett, owns Badlands, a biker bar outside Vegas, and has always wanted a chance at the limelight she feels was stolen from her.

On a whim, they decide to switch places like they did when they were kids.

What harm could it do?

Charlotte had no idea that the escape she planned would leave her on the receiving end of creepy texts, phone calls and “gifts” left at her door. Flying blind in her new role, pretending to be someone she’s not, Charlotte learns more about her secretive sister than she ever imagined.

On top of all of that, she’s doing everything she can to escape the sexy-as-sin MC President demanding she pay back the debt she owes him–that or sell him the bar.

Could the person stalking her also be the President of the Evil Dead MC’s Las Vegas Chapter? An alpha male who’s come-on to her in a won’t-take-no-for-an-answer kind of way that has her wondering just how badly she wants to say no.

Does he want Badlands badly enough to scare her into selling out?

Or is he the only one who can save her from a madman?

Charlotte will have to solve the mystery if she’s going to save the bar, and possibly her very life.

• MY REVIEW •


“For a girl like you, I’m willin’ to put in the effort.”


I’m flailing my arms in excitement and in desperation of the next book! Eeeep! Nicole James has smashed it again! See, this is why she is an auto-buy author of mine. She never fails at keeping her readers engaged with her stories and invested in her characters— and this little reader right here was hooked from the second Charlotte and her twin sister Scarlett started swapping clothes and spontaneously decided to temporarily trade lives!

KateUpton_Fans

Nicole has plenty of books under her belt and all the ones I’ve read so far have had some pretty amazing storylines. This one stood out with its intriguing premise. It’s a trading places storyline weaved into a light MC romance. It has a more contemporary romance feel in comparison to Nicole’s other MC romance books. With its small town setting, the world-building heavily revolves around the protagonists, Charlotte and Daytona. There was an immediate connection between the two that automatically had me sitting up in attention. Despite some serious tension and danger in the air, the story still had an overall light atmosphere to it.

Similarly to Nicole’s other books, this one had plenty of heated banter between its hero and heroine, alongside some lighthearted comic-relief ribbing courtesy of the secondary characters— who so happens to be the brothers from the bright and shiny new Evil Dead MC Las Vegas Chapter! 😍😍

If you’ve read her Evil Dead MC series, then the introduction of a brand, spankin’ new Chapter would make your eyes pop-out-of-its-socket giddy! It practically means new blood, and I for one, am all for it!

Daytona is the President of this chapter but right off the bat I discovered he’s different from the other Evil Dead MC Chapter Presidents. He may be a badass alpha biker, but he’s openly affectionate, straightforward, and doesn’t play games. He knows what he wants, and it’s evident when he first lays eyes on Charlotte.

Charlotte is rightfully skeptical of Daytona and his motives, especially considering she’s currently living life as her sister. I would’ve loved to have seen more character development from both (especially Charlotte) but with how the story played out and especially how this book concluded, I’m hoping there’s a lot more to reveal in the next book.

The story is told from first person, dual points of view, and progressed in a relatively fast-pacing. There’s a lot of things happening that’ll keep you on your toes. It’s insta-romance with a layer of crime thriller added. There’s lots of suspense and second-guessing that it was hard to predict where the story would lead.

Please note, there are certain sensitive subject matters within the story that may be triggering for some readers. Besides the mature sexual content, it also contains violence, stalking, and kidnapping. This book is for mature audiences 18+ only.

The romance elements are swoony and had just the perfect amount of sweetness. It might have been on the insta-love side as far as romantic relationships go but it wasn’t at all unconvincing. They may have gotten together relatively quickly but there’s genuine interest in getting to know each other in more depth. You get Daytona’s backstory and an understanding of his mentality and how he lives his life. And with the arrival of this new Evil Dead MC Chapter, I was instantly curious about all the new club members who were introduced right alongside Daytona in this book. They may have only had minor roles in this story but they definitely made quite an impression! 😊

It’s a relatively shorter full-length novel but it was jam-packed full of detail and dimension, and the story didn’t stray away from its initial narrative. Nicole created a vivid world that I was effortlessly transported to. These characters go through a whirlwind of emotions and a rollercoaster of drama that you can’t help but sympathize. Even though this is fictional and some of the plots are dramatized, the situations that Charlotte and Daytona find themselves in are real-life, relatable experiences. Their lives are complex and their feelings are understandable and seem realistic.

Overall, I found it to be a hearty story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. There was constant buzz and build-up throughout that it was hard not to be gripped by it all. I was truly bummed to see it end and knowing I’d have to wait a little while for the release of book two. It ends on a cliffhanger but I’m relieved to see it concluded in a way where this particular part of Charlotte’s and Daytona’s story was somewhat settled…? Their relationship may be up in the air for the time being but the cat’s outta the bag and now we’ll just have to see how it all plays out from there. *dun dun duuuuun* Eeep.

If you enjoy reading about alpha heroes who have a gentlemanly side to them, and fiery heroines with backbone, then I recommend you give this one a try.

Definitely a must read for any Nicole James fan. I think this story is a great introduction for romance readers wanting to try MC romance books— whilst it certainly contains MC romance elements, it’s not completely MC heavy. It’s also technically an age-gap romance but it’s hardly noticeable, in my opinion.

• BLURB •

The authors of the Twisted Steel anthology have decided to come back with a second edition. They heard how much you loved it and listened to the readers. But, that’s not all. A few new faces have been added as well.

These USA Today and International Bestsellers have collaborated once again to bring you brand new biker stories that’ve never been published before. A combination of full-length novels and novellas are within the pages of this edition.

A couple of these authors have written about characters in their clubs you already adore, while others are launching a brand new series.

Each story takes place in a separate club, but you can always count on copious amounts of danger, suspense, angst but most of all – chemistry.

We ask you again: will these men and women put everything on the line for their brotherhood, or will they risk it all for love?

This collection includes stories from Dani René, April Canavan, Elizabeth Knox, Addison Jane, Claire Marta & Nia Farrell, E.C. Land, Erin Osborne, Amy Davies, Kristine Allen, Chelle C. Craze & Eli Abbott, Claire Shaw, Rae. B Lake, & Scarlett Black.

• MY REVIEW •

Bikers_SunsetRide

Please note this review is NOT for the entire anthology. It’s ONLY for The Biker’s Second Chance!

I’m a huge fan of James’ Evil Dead MC series and this story is a much anticipated one from a 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.        

I’m hoping when James releases his book later in the year that it’s extended a little more. I love Green but his story was way too short! It was addictive and I couldn’t read it fast enough, but I also think there were a lot of things that could’ve been more in-depth.

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 the flashbacks provided in Green’s story elevated the moments and gave their relationship layers. Despite the length of the story being on the shorter side, James managed to get me invested in Green’s and Sara’s relationship. I was already a big fan of Green but Sara was a completely new character. In a short span, I already found myself liking her personality and overall presence.      

I do adore the fact that Green had history with Sara. It makes their relationship believable especially with how quickly things progressed in the story. I love that they were so in sync with one another like no time has passed. 

– MC Romance
– High School Sweethearts
– Second Chance Romance

This was more MC-lite in comparison to the previous books from James’ series. I didn’t necessarily mind it because it certainly sets it apart from the other brothers’ stories where theirs had some dark elements. Green’s and Sara’s definitely centred more on the romance side of this MC romance story. I love the second chance aspect and that it was Green who ended having this trope — it provided Green with more dimension from his usual lighthearted, jokey side that we constantly saw 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. I’m happy to say it lived up to what I hoped it would be. It was swoon-worthy. We get to learn more about Green outside of the club. We get to meet the chick who snagged Green’s heart. And overall, it completely hooked my attention from start to finish. I’m looking forward to his official book release later in the year! #TeamGreen #TeamIrish 🍀

A nice, quick 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 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: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

FYI: Nicole James will re-release this story as an Evil Dead MC series standalone with a bonus epilogue, and re-titled as GREEN. Release date is November 18!

Impulsive by K.E. Osborn

booksofthemuggleborn_impulsive
Original post from my IG @booksofthemuggleborn

• BLURB •

Oakley captured my attention.

From the very first second.

The moment she sassed me, even though I was wearing my club cut, I knew she had fire in her soul.

As the tech man for the Houston Defiance MC, it’s my job to know everything. To always be ahead of the game. To outwit, outmatch, and outmaneuver our enemies at every turn. They may be smart, but I’m smarter.

Finding out this firecracker has ties to a rival MC catches me off guard.

And my first instinct is to protect her.   Damn the consequences.

Taking her under my wing is impulsive, reckless, electrifying.

And I’m more than aware of the repercussions.

But what if she is not who she says she is?

Those close to me loathe the idea of us, and they’re becoming more of an issue.

But things are not always as they seem.

With new threats comes chaos and danger at every turn.

But perhaps the war lies closer to home than even we realize.

From International Bestselling Author K E Osborn comes the highly anticipated fourth book in the Houston Defiance MC Series.

• MY REVIEW •

BikerChick_Helmet

Ooh-wee!! 👏👏👏👏 It’s official… Neon has stolen my heart! Move over alpha-holes… *singsong voice* hot nerd alert! Whoever said nerds aren’t cool have clearly not met Neon. And they need to!

This is the fourth book in the Houston Defiance MC but I gotta say it now, I truly recommend you read the previous books first before delving into this one. Not only will you get the entire world-building experience, you’ll see the different dynamics and relationships between not only the previous couples but with the brothers of the MC. There’s a ton of history especially between Neon and his President/ childhood best friend Zero and some of the issues that occur in this storyline is connected to their past. You won’t get the intensity and the magnitude of the problems they’ve gone (and still currently going through) just by reading this book alone. But for readers who haven’t read the previous books or not willing to read them first prior to this one, Osborn does do a good job at making sure you’re caught up with everyone’s situations.

I’m an avid MC romance reader and I’ve read heaps of them throughout the years, but I find that unless the Motorcycle Club as a whole is POC, then the majority of these book series’ lacked diversity in characters. I’m excited to see Osborn has incorporated more diverse characters into the Houston Defiance MC by having both her leading characters have mixed heritage.

For a reader who is also a POC (person of colour), I truly gravitate towards any character who may have similarities to my appearance, even the smallest physical trait such as a heroine having dark hair and tanned skin instantly gets my attention, and that’s what Osborn has done when she introduced Oakley into this series. It didn’t hurt that she had a lot of the same interests as me. Oakley is a biker chick who not only has a love of bikes but fast cars too. She’s sassy and stubborn but is also somewhat of guys gal as well.

Neon is the club’s tech whiz. He is brains, brawn and all heart. I’ve loved both Zero and Kevlar (with Wraith a close third) after reading their stories, but the more books I read in this series the more I was interested in reading about Neon because he always seemed like a sweet person with a tortured soul. He goes through a lot in his story constantly being relied on by others, and although his a biker in 1%er motorcycle club, in comparison to his brothers, he oozes gentlemanly vibes (most of the time). Impulsive soothe my craving for him! Neon is exactly how I pictured him to be and I was hooked from start to finish!

Biker_CoupleRide

Neon and Oakley are likable characters and there’s plenty of swoon-worthy moments between them. But like the previous couples in this series, they go through a rollercoaster of emotions and a handful of roadblocks throughout. I may not have liked their attitudes or agreed with their actions in every situation that they faced but I could sympathize with their reasonings. But also, just like the previous books in this series, you can still count on a great amount of romance (HEA included), a steady storyline, and MC elements!

But please note this story in particular contains sensitive subject matter that may be triggering for some readers such as violence, kidnapping, attempted rape, and mental and psychological disorders. Some scenes are detailed and graphic— please take into consideration before starting this book.

There’s an amazing cast of secondary characters included, albeit most of them are MC brothers but they never fail at providing some lighthearted comic relief when needed.

Since Oakley is a professional racer, I was hoping to see more of what she can do on the track, but I’m glad her talents weren’t completely wasted with Osborn including some entertaining moments here and there. And despite the seriousness of Oakley’s, Neon’s and the club’s current position, the story isn’t overly dark or gritty as other MC romances out there. It still however includes adult themes, so readers 18+ only!

You can’t really have an MC story without having some drama thrown in, and this one was a constant drama-filled story where one thing after another happened. Its storytelling has great pacing and told from first person dual points of view. I loved seeing Neon finally have his story told and for him to land the perfect girl for him. Putting aside the romance, this story opened doors for a few possible plotlines in upcoming books and I’m eager to see where the series is heading in the future.

Bikers_FastRide

Was the storyline predictable? Did it have any plot twists? To that I have to say yes and no. Yes, there were some things I had inklings about that did end up occurring… but it also had plot twists mixed in, if you get my drift. Osborn teases you with potentials and when the time’s right, not only does she drop it but she adds another layer that you didn’t see coming on top of it. Just when you think you know which direction it’s headed, something else happens that keeps you on your toes.

Overall, another superb addition to the Houston Defiance MC family! Not only do I recommend this book, I recommend the entire series. Every story and couple is different, dealing with their own issues, but throughout it all the brothers all have each other’s backs. Each one has a swoon-worthy hero, a heroine that catches their attention, and a story that’s dripping with suspense! As an MC romance reader I can tell you now, this feeds one’s craving!

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you K.E. Osborn, The Next Step PR, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy! 💚

Wicked by Nicole James

booksofthemuggleborn_wicked
Original post from my IG @booksofthemuggleborn

•••

• BLURB •

A woman lost in grief and pain. A bossy biker determined to bring her back to life.

A wickedly wild ride. Paige knows the meaning of pain and loss.

Two years ago she left town to nurse her grief over the death of her husband in a tragic bike wreck. Now she’s back— returning to the one family that understands the depth of her loss— her MC family.

WICKED—

My brother’s ol’ lady.

I’ve carried unspoken feelings for her since the night we met.

Ransack and I were as close as two MC brothers could be. I was with him the night he died. I held Paige in my arms in the trauma bay as she collapsed, her wailing sobs tearing my heart out. And the month after the funeral, I helped her load up Ransack’s old truck and head off for Macon— taking my heart with her.

I wish I could take that pain away from her.

More than once I’ve wished I’d died in my brother’s place.

Ransack’s death had been a huge loss for me, but watching Paige drive out of my life as well, ripped my heart out. Now she’s back.

When I see her standing across the clubhouse, instantly my lust for her flares back to life like it’s been days, not years.

She drove out of my life once, but I’ll be damned if I’ll waste this second shot with her.

All I have to do is win her heart from a dead man. I’ll do anything to keep my woman safe. Only problem is— Paige is stubborn and willful. And she never does anything she’s told.

PAIGE—

Wicked. He’s the one man I could always count on.

When I see him across the clubhouse for the first time in years, my heart begins beating again.

I need him, more than he can possibly know.

But in order to have a chance together, I have to let go of the past.

That’s easier said than done.

When information comes to light, I begin to question if my husband’s death was the tragic accident it appeared.

Determined to find out the truth… I won’t let anything stop me.

But the evidence I dig up could put everything I hold dear in jeopardy— Wicked, our future, and my very life.

•••

• MY REVIEW •

Ok. Before I delve into my review, in case you didn’t know, Wicked was originally published as a novella called My Ol’ Lady. It’s part of the Evil Dead MC series, James expanded the story, renamed it (obviously 🙄😜), and it’s here in all its glory! Wooo! 🙌

I’m gonna cut to the chase— Wicked is another amazing addition to the series! This was a second chance romance with a twist as Paige was originally an ol’ lady of another MC brother who died in an accident. His best friend Wicked has always had an attraction to Paige but never acted on it. She moved away shortly after to try and get a fresh start but a couple years later she moves back home and reunites with the club. All romantic feelings come flooding back for Wicked once he sees her again and it’s like no time has passed. The kicker is… Paige has the same feelings for Wicked too!

Scarlett_Shrugs

This was a relatively quick read (still on the shorter side of a full-length novel) with fast-paced storytelling. It’s told from both points of view and the majority of the story focuses on Paige being able to move on from her deceased hubby.

There’s a nice amount of MC elements still going on on the sidelines whilst Paige and Wicked figure out their budding relationship. I would’ve loved if it was a little longer to really give their story and their relationship a deeper development. I thought it could’ve been more in-depth. Paige and Wicked have known each other quite a long time but their past wasn’t something that was delved into in detail other than a couple of flashback memories. It gives you some insight into Wicked, Paige, and her husband Ransack’s friendship/relationship but I couldn’t fully connect with it because there wasn’t enough past interactions to make me see the close brotherhood they supposedly had.

I don’t know if that was purposely done so readers wouldn’t get attached to Ransack (because he’s dead and this is Paige’s and Wicked’s story) but in my opinion it lacked some form of bond, resulting in my lack of connection and emotion in really loving this couple as much as previous couples in this series.

Scarlett_Kisses

Putting those minor issues aside, I did overall enjoy reading this book. It still has great world-building in place with the brotherhood dynamics present. I was excited to see some of the past MC brothers make appearances in this book to give the story some dimension. There’s more than meets the eye with Paige’s story and the accident the killed Ransack, so I was kept on my toes as the truth slowly revealed itself.

Paige’s and Wicked’s rollercoaster of emotions and uncertainty within their relationship felt fairly relatable. I sympathized with Paige’s struggle to fully commit to a new relationship, and with Wicked’s frustration with having to somewhat compete with a ghost for Paige’s love.

James has added her usual trademark swoon-worthy heroes who are just the right amount of sweetness and protective alpha. The usual brotherly banter is there which is one of the reasons I first fell in love with this series, and even though this is an MC romance, there’s no doubt that “love conquers all” and a “happily ever after” is present.

I always love the balance of light and dark within the storylines of each book in this series. There may be some suspense and serious subject matters on occasion, but there’s also amazing friendships, swoon-worthy coupling, and tons of entertaining banter as well! Wicked is no different!

Bikers_Ride

A must read for fans of Nicole James and her Evil Dead MC series and perfect for any romance reader looking for MC romance books. 👌😉 The world-building is oh-so vivid and ever-expanding with each new book. Although this book can be read as a standalone, to get the full experience of their MC brotherhood and all the relationships, I highly recommend you start from the beginning with Outlaw and work your way from there (reading order below).
