Melanie’s 5 Stars Review:

It was a wonderful circumstance when I ran into LD Davis’ Accidentally On Purpose about a year or so ago while purchasing another book. Thank goodness for Amazon’s genius marketing strategy when they recommend similar books to their buyers that I was lead to the story of Emmy, Kyle, and Luke which became burrowed deeply into my psyche. Little did I know that the  moment Emmy uttered the words, “Kyle was my boss, and a dick” in Accidentally On Purpose that this entire series would drive me to become an AOP fanatic.

If LD Davis was standing in front of me, I would do either one of two things- bow down and kiss her shoe clad feet for writing such a beautiful tortuous story of love’s complexities or grab hold of her shoulders and shake her silly as retribution to the many moments I’ve taken time out in my real life to internally curse her for how Worthy of Redemption ended. I’m going to admit it..  I, Melanie of We Like It Big Book Blog was a BIG, HUGE fan of Kyle Sterling. There was something so attractive about his character, that he truly became an unhealthy book boyfriend obsession for me. These inexplicable feelings for his character shows the immense writing talent of the author. As a reader, I had somehow become Emmy as each page of the book turned. So, as I had mentioned, I was left bereft and aching at the end of Worthy of Redemption because as any crazy fangirl, I felt that it should have ended the way I wanted it to end.. Selfish? Yep, maybe a little bit. 🙂

When LD announced that she would be coming out with a novella for Luke, I reacted with a one shoulder shrug but couldn’t even lie to myself how interested I was to hear from the “good guy’s” point of view. You see, Luke’s character in both Accidentally On Purpose and Worthy of Redemption didn’t really do too much for me because I felt his character was so flat. He was the good guy, the guy all women would die crawling through the desert for just for the chance to end up in his bed and stay there forever. I was surprised with myself for feeling this way about the sweet, straight arrow hero because I was never the believer of the “nice guys finish last” mentality. I always fell for the nice guy. Another reason why AOP is so mystifying to me. How in the hell did LD take me out of my comfort zone? How did she so easily took me out of my element?  The only answer I can come up with is this- she’s got magical, unearthly powers.

Worth The Fight is an impassioned novel and its pages bleed of anger and betrayal. When I refer to the author as having some sort of enchanting powers, what I really mean is that she is one of the few out there right now who has pure, raw talent for writing. I am perturbed as to how she was able to make Worth The Fight a whole new book when 90% of this novel is a re-telling of events that have already occurred but told in Luke’s point of view. There are too many sequels out in the market which are re-told from other characters POVs that completely disappoint. The kind where a reader like myself, pick up bubbling with excitement in hopes to reincarnate their favorite characters and stories, only for them to fall incredibly short. This was my worst fear with Worth The Fight- I may have even made the sign of the cross before starting. Well, I am giving my 100% guarantee that this does not fall short whatsoever. From the very beginning of this book, it transforms into something new. I was reading a completely never before told story and it figgin’ blew me away!!! I kept having to look away from reading to run my fingers through my hair and ask myself, “what have you done with the Luke Kessler that bored me to death?!” The Luke Kessler in Worth The Fight is flawed and holy baby Jesus, I yearned for him. I loved sex on a stick, Luke, I lusted for his dirty and naughty ways, and I was fascinated with his ability to truly love. It amazed me how this author had completely reinvented an already versed character yet able to keep him true to the man she had introduced us to in the beginning of this series.

Worth The Fight is rich with heartache for both Luke and Emmy and there were no shortages of stomach churning moments for me. I greatly empathized with the both of them- two people who craved to love and be loved. LD Davis also came heavily armed with the most libido inducing sex scenes I have ever come to encounter. None of which are forced or overtly perverse but wickedly delicious, it’s enough to make you moan along.

As this is the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I give thanks to LD Davis for having the brilliance to know that this third and final book to the AOP series was needed. I am proud to say that I have experienced a book that consisted of an already told story but ingeniously re-told in a completely different light. I have the closure I so greatly thirsted for in Worthy of Redemption and pleased to have found it through Luke Kessler’s hypnotizing and striking blue eyes.

Clutch (Custom Culture #2)
by Tess Oliver

Reviewed by:
Michelle

Stars: 4

Synopsis:

When Taylor Flinn’s parents shipped her off to an aunt for her last year of high school, James “Clutch” Mason had convinced himself it was for the best. Taylor, the wild, impulsive and far-too-appealing seventeen-year-old had been driving him nuts. Her school girl crush on him had been the last thing he needed. Now he had time to concentrate on his booming classic car part business, his new found love– drag racing, and keeping his twenty-year-old brother Barrett out of trouble.

But when Taylor returns from her aunt’s more grown up, utterly seductive, and attached to another guy, Clutch realizes that the only thing he ever needed or wanted was Taylor Flinn.

Review:

First and foremost I want to thank Tess Oliver for gifting this book to me!!..
I first heard of Tess Oliver when she was announced as one of the authors of the Rockin’ indie bash book signing in Anaheim.
I wanted to read at least 1 book from all the authors that were attending. When I read FreeFall…I fell in love with all the characters in the book. Then I read another book of Tess’s Paradise (Girl Friday). I loved that book too!. So… I wrote Tess telling her how much I liked her books. She wrote back asking if I wanted to be part of the cover reveal of clutch!!.. I said YES!!!…
I couldn’t wait!! The day of the cover reveal was the day I got to meet her!!! I was so excited…(cause she knew who I was!!) I did the whole fan girl thing!!! Told her how much I loved her books & I couldn’t wait to read clutch!!
I forget with all the excitement how it happened. But Tess gifted me clutch & boy oh boy… This book did not disappoint!!! I absolutely loved it!
I loved that we still got to read about Nix & Scotlyn & Dray & Cassie.
We also get introduced to Clutch’s younger brother Barrett.
I literally read this book in a couple of hours! That’s how into it I was!
In FreeFall Taylor was that annoying girl that followed Clutch around like a lost little puppy. She has had a major crush on Clutch since…. Forever!!..lol
Clutch being the stand up guy that he is kept his distance… One.. Because of her age & two… He felt she still had a lot of growing up to do. He’s always liked her..he just never allowed him self to act on it.
Well… At the end of FreeFall Taylor went to far and got herself in some trouble that caused her to leave. Leaving Clutch with a broken heart.
Taylor was always on Clutch’s mind. He always wondered about her.. How she was doing… What she was doing.
When he found out that she had been back from out of town… He was upset that no one had told him she was back or that she had a boyfriend!!
Taylor made a promise to her family. That if she was to come back. She could not talk to or see Clutch at all or she would get a one way ticket back to where she was staying at! So she did everything they asked of her. She was going to school… Got a boyfriend that everyone approved of… But she was living a lie. It was all for them and not for her!
All it took was one look at Clutch to crumble her whole sham of a life. She knew she wasn’t over him. & Clutch new he couldn’t keep away from her any more.
They had an explosive kiss!

Taylor-
“Do you know how long I’ve waited for you to do that”
Clutch-
“I doubt as long as I’ve wanted to do it.”

Even after that kiss… Things were still hard for them.
Taylor still acted like a little kid but knew what she wanted. She just went about it all wrong & Clutch poor thing never seemed to say anything right!…lol
Then something happened to Clutch that changed them. Brought them together or at least in the right direction.
Clutch finally said something that Taylor has always wanted to hear.

-Clutch
“I’m not high. I want you, Taylor here, next to me. Fuck what everyone else thinks. I need you.”

“Taylor,” he said quietly, “I never stop thinking about you.” His labor breath stuttered through the phone. “I’ve never stopped.”
Even after that declaration they were still playing the hot cold game.
But when they finally got together… Watch out for the fireworks! It was pretty hot!

Taylor-
“I waver back and forth about a lot of things in my life, but, James Mason, I’ve never stop wanting you,”
Even after everything they had been through… I still felt Taylor made some immature decisions. I felt for poor Clutch. He had so much going on in his plate. His brother Barrett was a mess… Bringing trouble with him. His Business partner Taylor’s brother was giving him a hard time & then Taylor.
In the end Clutch made some decisions that I was very happy about! He stepped up.
Do they get their HEA…yes! Do I think they are going to have a smooth relationship…hell no!!…lol
With Taylor by his side… It’s going to be one hell of a ride!!…lol
I can’t wait for the 3rd book in the Custom Culture series!!

Excerpt:

I grabbed my purse and headed outside to go and buy lunch. J was on the phone, but saw me come outside and signaled for me to wait. “I’m going to buy lunch, J.  And I only get an hour so I don’t have time to wait for you,” I said, tersely.  He kept talking and scowled at me. I turned and started to walk away from him, towards the cafe where I always bought lunch. I could hear him muttering something into the phone and then he must have ended his call because he went silent.  Then, he barked, “Madison!” The last thing I wanted to do was stop for him, but there was something in his tone; a ‘don’t fuck with me’ command.  So I stopped, and turned around to look at him.  Oh, my.  He was shitty. He stalked to where I was and got in my face.  “Why the fuck do you have to be so difficult about this?” He was fuming. Well, I could see him, and raise him in his anger.  “Maybe it has something to do with the way Scott has gone about this. And the fact that he sent you!” He flinched.  It was only for a second, and most people wouldn’t have even noticed it.  But I knew J, and I saw it.  It surprised the fuck out of me.  “Well then, it looks like we’ve got some shit to sort out, babe, because I’m not going anywhere.” “I don’t want to sort shit out with you.  That ship sailed two fucking years ago, J,” I spat. He gripped my arm, pulling me closer, “No, it fucking didn’t,” he growled, eyes blazing, “And you can’t deny there’s still something here. I feel it and I know you feel it too.” I laughed.  No, actually, I cackled.  “You wanna fuck, J?  I can feel that, and, yeah, if you wanna go there, I’m all for it.  But don’t mistake my desire for your cock for anything else.”

Melanie’s 3.5 star review:

Ever since picking up Undeniable, I was hooked on MC (Motorcycle Club) books. I loved the leather, the rough and tumble lifestyle, the delicious dominant bikers, and the overall taboo of MCs. So when we were approached about participating in Nina Levine’s Storm blog tour, I immediately raised my hand as the synopsis already had my full attention.

Unfortunately, Madison and Jason’s story fell a bit short for me. It lacked the genuine MC feel and I struggled with the tone of the book. I was however willing to continue to give it a chance because of Jason’s aka J’s character. He is as expected, the intense and sexy alpha biker; but what piqued my interest in his character was his ability to look past the BS and focus entirely in making situations better. This is something that I have not seen a lot of in past book’s main male characters.

Our heroine, Madison Cole has lived the MC life since she was born. Her father being Storm’s President, she knows exactly what that life entails. Even after living with the MC’s dealings on a daily basis, Madison doesn’t see the extent of it until a very traumatic event occurs. She is left to cope with the events and the consequences and she does not bode very well. She turns to alcohol and loses the one person that has meant more to her than anyone else. The best thing I could say about Madison is her fiery spirit. She perseveres through her demons and learns from her mistakes.

There were quite a few steamy scenes which I enjoyed and felt that Nina did a good job with not forcing these scenes but only included them when necessary. The chemistry between J and Maddy was well executed. However, I could not get fully on board with the dialogue- those I felt were overtly contrived.

I was able to get through the entire book within a day as it did keep me entertained for the most part. I look forward to following Nina Levine’s writing as there I feel there is great potential to this series.

About the Author:

Nina Levine is an Aussie writer who writes stories about hot, alpha men and the tough, independent women they love. You won’t find any whiny, spineless women in Nina’s books and you certainly won’t find weak men. A warning though, you will find hot, dirty sex, lots of swearing, occasional violent encounters and men and women who live fast and love hard. Nina’s debut book Storm will be releasing in November 2013. It is based around the Storm Motorcycle Club and is the first book in an MC series.

Excerpt

**Disclaimer: This content is unedited and subject to change**

Copyright © Jessica Ingro

“Fine. Bring me the damn suit,” I grumble begrudgingly.

“You’re the best! You know that?” Kara kisses me chastely. Her father is still there after all.

Bill laughs once Kara bolts up the stairs.

“Laugh now. Next thing you know she’ll make you be my elf!” I threaten good naturedly.

“I’d love to see that,” he says in between chuckles.

“Ah crap!” I pull my hands through my hair, seriously wanting to throw a child-sized temper tantrum at this turn of events.

“Think of it this way, son. It will be good practice for when you have kids. And you’re making those girls’ night.”

“Yeah… alright. I guess I can try to look on the bright side of things,” I concede. The last thing I need is for my soon to be father-in-law to think I’m a big baby.

Kara returns twenty minutes later with a giant red bag. I drag it into the bathroom and take my time changing. Part of me hopes that if I take too long the girls will fall asleep or something. Stranger things have happened.

“It’s Christmas Eve, Jacob. The girls won’t want to fall asleep regardless, so don’t think you can get out of this,” Kara calls through door.

How the hell does she do that? It’s worse than the eyes in the back of her head.

“I’ll be out in a minute,” I yell through the door.

After I velcro the giant pillow onto my belly, I turn to the side and stick my stomach out further, poking at my now enlarged gut. I roll my abdominal muscles making the pillow bounce and ripple. Chuckling at my nonsense, I step into the red, velvet pants. I pull the black suspenders over my shoulder and do a little jig watching as my stomach bounces around.

Apparently this suit sucks the seriousness out of you. Maybe it’s a magic suit…

I stop my musings and proceed to put the jacket on and button it up.

I look damn good in red. Even with a giant stomach.

Next comes the wig and beard, followed by the hat. Now I have absolutely no reason to walk out of this bathroom. Damn.

Opening the door, Kara is the first thing I see. Her face lights up and she graces me with a wide smile. She lifts her arm, and then she does the unthinkable when she snaps a picture with her cell phone.

“Lump of coal for you!” I shout and make like I’m going to attack her. When I lunge for her, she screeches and runs across the room.

Once I catch up with her, she reaches out and rubs red shit on my cheeks. “Really?” I ask not wanting to deal with this shit.

“You are so going to get lucky later,” she mumbles so only I can hear her.

“Damn straight. You owe me one creative session, Sunshine.”

“There is this new position I heard about that I’ve been curious to try.”

“It’s a good thing this suit is big, otherwise my sister would think Santa was a giant perv. What do you think you’re doing telling me that now?” I gripe, knowing my nieces can’t sit on my lap while I’m turned on.

“Sorry. I forget,” she says like that explains it all.

“You’re lucky I love you.” I kiss her forehead and start towards the stairs. “Let’s get this over with.”

Synopsis

My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the President of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence and branded my skin, and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I’m out for revenge.

But I didn’t expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn’t expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I’m faced with an impossible choice – Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

Excerpt
Tears form at the corner of my eyes as the full brunt of Dornan’s obsession with me becomes apparent. He left me here for this. He asked me who my ex-boyfriend was, and then proceeded to travel across the country to kidnap an innocent boy from his house. A boy who has never laid eyes on me, a boy who I found online and added to Sammi’s backstory for credibility.
A boy who kneels in front of me with a gun pointed at his head.
I struggle against Chad’s stronghold, but it is useless. The guy is built, and he’s probably been snorting the white powder with daddy all the way home.
I bite down on Chad’s hand and he pulls it away, yelling at me.
“He’s not my ex!” I scream, fighting against Chad’s rigid embrace.
Dornan looks at me like a man possessed. A man on a mission.
“I lied,” I gasp, still struggling. “I’ve never met him before. Please, just let him go.”
Dornan lowers his gun and looks me up and down. “You don’t have to be scared of him anymore,” he says. He lifts the gun, his finger putting pressure on the trigger.
“Please!” I scream.
My pleas go unheeded.
He pulls the trigger.

Heart-Break-Proof By William Goode & Michelle Roy

Reviewed by: Michelle

Stars: 3

Synopsis:

When Marie finally wrote back to Andrew, he truly learned how words can seduce, corrupt and inflame. The stories Marie and Andrew now make up, trading e-mails, consume them. They begin a passionate affair, and their deepening obsession with each other penetrates their writing. Then the stories take over and change everything. Oh, and the bit with the shoe is freaking wild. Fun, well-told, intelligent and absorbing, Heart-Break-Proof is about words that bind tighter than any rope. (Actually, there are ropes in this book too. But mainly words). So, be careful what you read.

Review:

*I was given this book to read for an honest review*

I enjoyed this book but I didn’t love this book. & let me tell you why… I had some issues with this book that I just couldn’t really get over. Let me start off with what I liked about this book.

I loved the concept of it! I absolutely love books that are like email, text, or letters! It feels like your going into someone’s personal lives without them knowing about it. This book had that. & I loved that!  I also liked Marie & Andrew the main characters in this book. Marie… lives in Montreal… She’s an attorney. She works for a very prestigious law firm. I like how Marie seemed real straight forward…a take no prisoner or bullshit attitude. A real hard ass. But in her emails…she showed another side to herself.  She was still assertive …but it kind of showed maybe a softer side to her… A go with the flow kind of girl.

Andrew…. Very good looking… Loves the women. Is a laid back kind of guy. He’s doing his postdoc at the University of Toronto. Andrew & Marie meet at a mutual friends party. He was hitting on a girl when he see someone walking into the room….Marie. Marie walks into her best friends party and see Andrew…she thinks he’s handsome but with a girl draped on him… She sizes him up real quick. Never really giving him a chance. They chat for a bit…& then she leaves the party. Thinking she will never see or hear from him again! Andrew tracks Marie down asking her if she would like to go on a date with him.Andrew has never put so much work into getting one girls attention. Especially one that seems like she has no interest in him. They go on one date that doesn’t really end well… He try’s one more time… But he tries a different approach… something different…. something new… He starts to send her stories about them doing things in different scenarios. He starts off the story and stops in a certain part. Them Marie picks up the story and they end up going back and forth that way.

Ok… I like all that. I like how either he or she would start off a story and they would take off from there….                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Ughhh… This is also the part that I was frustrated about. When reading books like these….I like to see who is saying what. Since this book is about emailing… I wished that the authors would have put who was sending the emails, time & date. Because it got confusing. I kept have to go back and reread to make sure I didn’t miss something. Or if I was still reading the same character or if it had switch to the other character.

Yes.. The authors explain who says what with the different fonts in the book. But when your reading the book it’s hard to notice the change in fonts… So when your reading it… You don’t even realize you stopped reading Andrews part and moved on to Marie’s part. I found my self constantly going back & rereading & then moving forward again. To me… That just messed up the flow of the book big time. & sometimes I got confused when they started a new story between them. I would be like…wait a minute… What…. Then I would go back and reread & go on from there.  Another thing I didn’t care for was all the Shakespearean quotes. Or some of the other quotes. & some of the technical “medical” use of names of body parts and other words like “comeuppance”, “cleaved”, “lacquered”, “lugubriously”. Now…some of you may have heard of some of these words… but I have not…& all I have to say…. Is thank god for the dictionary in my kindle!!!…lol… Just didn’t seem natural. It’s like they got a thesaurus and went crazy with it. For me…it just messed up the whole flow of it.

Overall…Andrew & Marie’s story was a very up & down relationship! The phrase opposites attract pops in my head when I think of this couple. Marie was a very cold person. It’s really her way or the highway…& Andrew was a very go with the flow kind of guy. I liked him a lot!

Would I read the second book… Probably… I would like to see how Andrew & Marie end up…

Synopsis
 

Punishing
himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander
Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.

Famous author
though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet
Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw
his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His
therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M
club.

Then comes Sage.
Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible
charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading
man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce
to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who
offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the
person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If
only the solution would reach out and touch him.
