Hard Proof (Notus Motorcycle Club #1) by Debra Kayn

Hard Proof (Notus Motorcycle Club #1) by Debra Kayn

Book Description:

Identical twin sisters move to St. John's, Oregon, buy Vavoom's Bar, and purposely put themselves into the path of Notus Motorcycle Club. 

Burdened by a deep, dark secret, Clara has to be careful because one wrong step, one wrong word, could land her and Gracie in prison. Her need to stay close to the motorcycle club members backfire when Wayne Shaw throws her heart into a tailspin. There is more to the possessive biker than she originally thought. Cornered and out of options, she can only go forward and hope Wayne protects her.

Wayne Shaw splits his time between working at Port Loaders, searching for missing persons in partnership with the local police department, and keeping Notus Motorcycle Club together in hopes a brother will come home. Skilled at finding clues normal people miss, he has no trouble telling the new owners of Vavoom's apart. He only wants Clara. 

When a little girl goes missing, followed by a teenager disappearing, Wayne's need to keep Clara safe while searching for a serial killer gets tested…until he's no longer sure who is the hunted and who is the hunter.

My Review:

Hard Proof by Debra Kayn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hard Proof (Notus Motorcycle Club #1) by Debra Kayn

This is the first time I've read a book written by Debra Kayn, her writing is really good, loved the story line, and the character development for future books has me intrigued to want to read the next book in this series.

First I will say it’s a bit different from the other Motorcycle Club books I've read, but only because their club consists of 5 close friends who grew up together and formed the Notus Motorcycle Club. The other big difference is this Club works on missing person case's and are called in by police if they need help.

The story line was exciting, kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next, I like that there was some mystery and suspense involved in the story line. Rather than bad boy meets the nice girl romance novel. But in saying that the romance portion of the story was great, I enjoyed Clara and Wayne's story even if it had some deceit in it.

I definitely can't wait to read more in this series, I am hoping Grace finds some exciting romance with one of the other club members.

I have rated Hard Proof, 4 stars and would highly recommend anyone to pick up/download a copy for yourself.

Release Blitz - Wrench - The Club Girl Diaries Book 6 by Addison Jane




Title: Wrench
Series: The Club Girl Diaries #6
Author: Addison Jane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: May 3, 2017



Blurb

If there were skeletons in your closet, Wrench would find them. 

The skills he possessed had landed him in jail on more than one occasion. But he would continue to do whatever he had to in order to protect his family—the Brothers by Blood MC. If that meant time behind bars, so be it. 

He never thought his loyalty to the club would falter. 

He thought wrong. 

When Sugar—the mother of his president’s daughter—returned, he knew she was off limits. Her strength and beauty pulled him in though, and the closer they got the more broken pieces of her soul he discovered. 

He wanted to fight for her, to put her back together.
But he needed to make a decision—loyalty or love—before he lost both.

Sugar came from money but she had never let it define her. 
As she grew older she was treated like an outcast and eventually, the people who were meant to care for and support her threw her to the wolves. 

She'd spent years trying to build herself back up, to fight for a life that she deserved and to prove everyone wrong. But there were things that still haunted her, secrets that she knew she couldn't hide forever.

Coming back to the club was a risk she had to take to give her daughter the family she'd never known. 

When her demons rear their ugly face, Wrench is right there beside her. She felt secureand protected in his arms, he saw the truth inside her and he didn't run. 

But the secrets and lies were building, and they had the power to crush the people they cared for. 


With the past and the present about to collide, how far will they both go to protect their family’s future?

Review:

Wrench - The Club Girl Diaries Book 6 by Addison Jane

Once again Addison Jane has written a fantastic addition to the Club Girl Diaries Series.

Sugar who is the mother of Harlyn who’s dads happens to be president of the Brothers by Blood Motorcycle Club has some secrets and will do anything to protect her daughter and keep her safe.

Wrench who in the previous stories we know as the computer tec/hacker who can find anything out the club needs. Wrench is very loyal to his brothers but he can't help wanting something he knows he shouldn't even considering touching. Sugar is after all the presidents ex and mother of his daughter. 

This story has some twists, turns and wow I was surprized.  I actually didn't think this would be one of my favorite books as I wasn't really into these two characters from the previous books, I have to admit I was shocked on how much I enjoyed Wrench and Sugar.  This is a must read!!


I have rated Wrench 5 stars and would recommend all my friends and followers to read this series.  Addison Jane is one of my favorite authors who her writing is phenomenal.

Release Day Blitz of WAKING THE DEAD by D.B. Sieders

The road to hell begins
when the reaper darkens her door.
Book Cover
WAKING THE DEAD
D.B. SIEDERS
Series: Soul Broker # 1
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Suspense
Publisher: City Owl Press
Publication Date: March 28, 2017
The road to hell begins when the reaper darkens her door.
A chance encounter with a dying stranger opens an empathic connection between down-on-her-luck caregiver Vivian Bedford and the world of spirits. Lazarus Darkmore, a grim reaper in a charming and seductive package, seeks to recruit her as a soul broker. Guardian spirit Ezra and his new apprentice Zeke offer protection from the reaper--so long as she works on their side of afterlife management. But these guardians are no angels, and their methods leave Vivian fearing the price of their protection.
Her ability to channel conscious energy from the living, something no guardian or reaper can do, could be a game changer. If she can control it, she can use this power as leverage. And she needs a bargaining chip, especially when she discovers that incapacitated living mortals can supply energy for the spirit realm, making her disabled sister Mae a prime target for guardian and reaper alike.
Can she move from pawn to major player in order to save Mae, and herself, from a horrific fate beyond the simple and fleeting terrors of death?
I loved this story ... it was well written and there were plenty of twists and turns in the story to keep your interest.

Book Description:

Piper’s no stranger to motorcycle clubs. She ran from that life several years ago and has no desire to go back. Only the life came looking for her in the form of a gorgeous, massive man they call Ender.

Ender is the cleanup guy. The guy who fixes sh#t when it’s broken. When he’s sent to retrieve the sexy hothead, he gets more than he’s bargained for.

She’s no wallflower and during her years away, she’s learned new skills making her lethal. But Ender is just as good at his job and he’ll get her back home, hog-tied if he has to.

There’s only one problem. The more time he spends with her road tripping across the country, the more he wants her in his bed. The patch that marks her as taken, however, belongs to another, his best friend and brother. And a man’s got to live by a code, one he can’t break.

She hates him for what he represents and his cold demeanor. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want one night to see if the man behind the mask lives up to his reputation. For her survival, she’s determined to break him and his code. It might be her only means of escape. And if she’s honest, the sooner she can get away the better because her heart is getting lost in him too.

Review:

Ride or Die by Terri E. Laine, great story, loved Pipers personality and how strong and independent she was. I love when women are just as bad ass as the male characters portrayed in books.

I am a huge fan of books that are written around MC Clubs, I have read many and so I was quite excited to see one of my favorite authors had written a book in my favorite genre to read. Yay Terri!!

So we meet Ender who has been told by his President to go get Piper and bring her home where she belongs, Ender is what they call a cleanup guy and does what he has to for the Club. Piper knows what it’s like to grow up in the MC world and moved on and didn't want or plan on returning to their world.

One of the best parts for me was the dialogue between Ender and Piper, made you smile and laugh and my god the sexual tension was hot, all I kept thinking is these two have to end up together.  I almost went to the back of the book to ensure I would be happy with the ending.   But I won't say anymore on that subject.

Ender has been instructed to bring Piper back where she belongs, and she belongs to someone else! This is a huge problem for him as he could never betray one of his brothers.  The story is exciting and I could not put the book down, it was even hard waiting for the 2nd to post my review.  The 3rd person point of view was a bit harder to connect with but I still enjoyed it thoroughly.  The tension was exciting and I just kept turning the pages to see what was going to happen.

Anyway here is what I think......this is one of my favorite books Terri has written and I sincerely hope she writes more.

I have rated Ride or Die 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who loves to read fantastic, exciting, hot, and well written stories.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review!

Synopsis: 

Armie Croft just lost the last of his vision due to a degenerative disease, something that proves problematic as he bangs his head against the side of the JCA pool during a late night swim. Leighanne Misra, the nighttime lifeguard, jumps in to rescue him, followed by Mitch Karmi…who is wearing a suit and has no training when it comes to performing CPR. Soon after laughing at Mitch’s soaking wet clothes, and double checking to make sure Armie is alive and well, a steamy connection is forged between the three acquaintances.Mitch wants to hide their ménage from the public, much to Armie and Leighanne’s dismay, but he negotiates and asks they at least have the week leading up to the first night of Hanukkah to themselves. The three lovers are stronger together but sometimes you never truly appreciate what you have until you’ve lost it.

EXCERPT



Armie woke with the acute awareness that he was somewhere he’d never been before. The sounds were all wrong to be his apartment or sisters’ houses or even Dearborne’s back room where drunks sometimes slept the night off. No, this place sounded almost cavernous, the ambient noise bouncing off hard surfaces with nothing to absorb them. He stretched his hand to his right and came up against a soft surface. He was lying on a couch. That wasn’t ominous; that wasn’t a reason to start panicking. There was a blanket covering him; thick, felt like wool. Serial killers wouldn’t cover him with a woolen blanket, nor keep him unbound. A self-deprecating thought shamefully struck his mind, bringing on another familiar wave of helplessness. “They would once they realized you were pretty much feeble,” he muttered. “Oh, you’re awake!” Armie went for the voice swinging, but in his panic he forgot he was lying on a couch and rolled onto the floor. He landed on his back, knocking the wind out of him. “Armie, Armie, it’s good. It’s Leighanne. You’re at Mitchell’s apartment.” She grabbed his hands, stilling his frantic and probably ridiculous-looking arm waving. Leighanne, shit. He was okay. This was fine. Disgustingly embarrassing, but fine. She rubbed his hands between hers, soothing and calming, bringing him back down to reality, explaining what had happened the night before. “You were drunk, and we were worried about you getting home on your own, so we brought you here.” Right. He’d made a fool of himself at Dearborne’s as well. There was no way the old man wouldn’t call Ophi and Nettie about his antics now. The town was too nosy for its own damn good. “I went to the bar to have a few beers” “By a few, I think you mean nearly ten shots and five beers according to a text we got from Dearborne after bringing you here.” She stroked his cheek with her knuckles, the bones tripping over his stubble. “You’re a crafty drunk, ordering from different bartenders so they can’t tell how much you’re drinking till it’s too late.” “Yeah, call me the master,” he mumbled. He felt for the couch’s edge and hauled himself up from the floor to sit. The cushion dipped next to him, and Leighanne’s spicy scent suffused his senses. He could only be grateful Mitch hadn’t seen his swan dive. Armie rubbed his eyes. They were gritty. Even though he couldn’t use them, they still collected moisture overnight that crusted in the morning. Annoying, really. “Shit.” He didn’t say anything else, thoroughly self-conscious, even more so than he had been at the JCA. “I should go.” He looked up, hoping to be facing in her direction. Armie remembered what it was like to speak to a blind person, back when he could still see. They didn’t look directly at him, slightly off centered sometimes. It had been odd, but worse, it had made Armie feel pity for the person. He never wanted Leighanne to feel that way about him. “Thank you for rescuing me. Again. Where’s Mitchell?” A voice from across the room echoed, coming closer as he spoke. “You both need to start calling me Mitch. I never considered myself a Mitchell.” “I like Mitchell.” Leighanne’s lilting tones. Her voice was so musical. “It sounds classic.” Mitchell hummed at the compliment, and Armie heard skin sliding against skin. Was he touching her? Had they done something together? Of course they had. Judging by how they had felt at the JCA, they were both extremely witty and smart and accomplished. Of course they’d be together. Armie couldn’t hold back his sigh at another missed opportunity. He should have gotten over himself back in that locker room, should have given in to what he’d wanted. But the fear and the shame had been too strong, to the point where it was almost all he felt nowadays. Armie cleared his throat. “Thanks, Mitch, for taking care of me.” The words felt like shrapnel in his mouth. “Is my phone here? I should call a cab.” “Uh”Leighanne hesitated a second. “Yes, your phone is here. But we want you to stay for breakfast.” “I don’t want to intrude.” A big hand, Mitch’s hand, squeezed Armie’s shoulder. “You wouldn’t be intruding. In fact”—he slid the hand up the side of Armie’s neck and into his curls, playing with the strands and rubbing them against the shell of his ear—“we’ve been waiting to get you alone again since the locker room.” Armie didn’t have to guess at Mitch’s meaning. The heat had been off the charts. Maybe they’d waited for him. Maybe they still wanted him. That would be too much to hope for. “Can I get a toothbrush and a shower?” “Only if you stay for breakfast,” Leighanne said, the hopeful tone in her voice so endearing. “Yes, I’ll stay.”

I eventually decided it was time to share my daydreaming with the world and began to put my musings on paper. It started with Harry Potter fanfiction and grew from there. I am currently living it up in Northern California after a big move from New York City. And by living it up I mean staying home with my cats, obsessively watching episodes of my favorite TV shows, all of which are extremely geeky, and simultaneously reading the next book on my reading list. I do all this while trying not to pig out on unhealthy snacks. As you can tell, I lead a busy life.
