The army taught me discipline. Order. Control.
None of that matters the day I walk into her classroom.
Or her bedroom.
What’s more important than my grade?
Not failing her.
About the Author
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

Down the rabbit hole we go. That’s certainly how I felt while reading this book. That I was in an another universe. That I was in some twisted version of Wonderland. Where red is the color that flows freely. Where the great adventure was going on a killing spree throughout Wonderland.
Ok… so this book won’t be for everyone. It’s definitely up there in the WTF did I just read factor. But this book has so many things going on. Lots of hell’s no for some people. Like… If blood play is not your thing… then this book is definitely not for you! If playing games with people before they die is not your thing…. then this book is not for you!
This book has so many twists and turns.
I have to say…. I really loved this book! I mean loved it! What Heathan James (Rabbit) & Ellis Earnshaw (Dolly) had to go through as kids. You will justify everything they did in this book.
“We’re going on an adventure, darlin’. Your White Rabbit is here to take you to Wonderland. I found the rabbit hole in this house.”
Both of them never had a chance in Ellis’s house. The bad men preyed on both of them. Took away what little they had of their childhood. I felt for them. For both of them.. It’s was both sad and hard to read what they went through. Living in an alternate universe and creating another world was their coping method.
“We have places to go and people to meet. We have to fulfill our destiny.”
“Looking straight ahead, I said, “I’m ready.” A long deep breath. “Ready for our adventure, in Wonderland.”
It seemed to me that the more kills they had did together…the more savage they became with each other. More rough… it seemed like they were slowly unraveling. By letting small parts of themselves go with each kill. But Rabbit always had one foot in the real world and one foot in Wonderland.
Rabbit and Dolly needed each other to move on with their lives. They needed to make things right. Rabbit gave Dolly her life back. He cherished her in his own messed up way.
This book was crazy! I loved every minute of it. It was a true and twisted love story. Rabbit showed Dolly just how far he was willing to go to make her happy. He brought her back from the darkness. A place she never thought she would get out of. And Dolly gave Rabbit a sort of calm that he never seemed to get by himself.
“Heathan James, you have eaten my heart and drunk my soul. I am yours. I have been consumed by you . . . happily.”
I’m so glad I read his book! And I was able to go on their great big journey with them defeating all the characters of Wonderland.
“I thought of the journey ahead. Thought of the blood we would shed, the hearts we would stop and the lives we would steal. And all the time a smile threatened to grace my lips when I thought of my Dolly beside me, slitting throats, slicing flesh—her tainted blood guiding our revenge.”

I never should have stepped foot on that airplane…
But I did.
Sins come in all shapes and sizes. My biggest sin to date comes in the form of
sex, tattoos, and Harleys. Roman Blackhart, owner of Blackhart Custom
Motorcycles, is all about living life in the fast lane. Our relationship went
from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye. Only problem is, I have a
secret. A secret so deep it’s pulling me in two different directions.
Now we’re 1,400 miles of memories and broken hearts. I just hope it’s not too
late to put all the pieces back together again.
I took a break from reading Jane’s books. So, this is the first book I’ve read from her in a while. I’m really glad I picked this book to make my Jane comeback! It was really good.
But… I did came across the reason why I had to take a break from her books. I’ll get to that a little later in my review.
Overlooking what I didn’t like in this book.
I really enjoyed this book. I mean…. I couldn’t stop reading it. I loved Jack’s character. His whole attitude.. His level of intensity. It worked for me. And I loved MJ’s character too. She was strong and independent. She knew what she wanted and she went for it.
Both MJ & Jack understand their job and lifestyle choices. And they respected it. They got it. They both made it work for them. It was hard at times for both of them. But ,the love they had for each other helped with all the long distance they had to endure.
Everything was pretty spot on with me with this book. Jane did a fabulous job painting a pretty vivid picture of war and all the issues MJ had to write about. It was kind of heartbreaking too. So much stuff other countries have to go through. It was sad. But, through all that MJ and Jack found their beginning. But also their weakness too. Their career’s was always going to be their issue with them.
“That’s my life, my job, and I love my job. So I guess it has similarities since not everyone can deal with my lifestyle and career choices.”
MJ and Jack’s had a very intense relationship. It was always on the go. Their relationship was very fast paced. So they fell for each other hard and fast. Their love making was also the same way. Very intense, frantic and a little rough. I loved it! I felt it all. I also loved how Jack wasn’t afraid to show his feelings to MJ. He was always telling MJ how he felt about her. He never hid it from her.
“I don’t know what this is, Maggie, what’s happening here, but it feels good. Real good. And I don’t want it to stop. I have absolutely no fucking control when I’m making love to you. And that’s what I want to do. Right now.”
I loved all the up and downs of their relationship. They really went through a lot to be together. But it just make things with them that much more.
The ending was kinda funny. I was kind of scared when Caroline (from The Education of Sebastian and Caroline.) made a surprise appearance in this book. But it totally worked in this book and I was very happy to see my two favorite characters again! I loved how we got a little more about Sebastian and to see how much he has changed. I’m happy for him!
I loved the ending. I wish we could’ve had a 10 year epilogue. It just seemed like it needed a little more.
Overall…. I really, really enjoyed this book! I’m happy I took a chance and read it. And I was super happy and surprised to read my beloved city Oceanside was in this book. I live 5 min away from the back gate of Camp Pendleton. My husband works on base and is a former Marine. It was nice to read.
Now to the only part that I hated about this book.
Ok… I know a lot of people can overlook this but for some reason….I couldn’t. This just started to bug me in Jane’s books. And thats why I took a break from reading her books. And, it’s her writing of American country accents. It just doesn’t read right when you write it down. I mean… all she has to say is he has a Mississippi country accent and I think we could pretty much imagine The character talking with a southern accent. Why write it.
Every time “Waal” was said by Jack…. I just cringed.
“Waal, my grandpappy always told me to treat a pretty girl like a lady.”
Reading this… I just couldn’t picture a guy talking like that. And it just bugged me. Jack didn’t talk like that throughout the whole book. But it did pop up here and there and it always just threw me.
Other than that. The book is solid and I would recommend this book to everybody!

Lainey has heard the ghost stories of the beast in the woods, but one night around a campfire she discovers some legends are true.
The Butcher has watched her from a distance, but he’s a man with needs and won’t deny himself any longer.
Warning: We’ve teamed up with Jessa Kane again to bring you filthy, over-the-top hotness. It’s ridiculously fun, so don’t be shy! Grab your marshmallows and join us for this dirty treat!
Where do I start with this review?! There was a lot to take in!!! Their was a feel of forbiddeness in this story. And a little Beauty in the beast with some hulk in there too! lol
He was like a wild animal when it came to Lainey. He couldn’t contain himself.
“The animal inside me must have recognized his mate. His match. Lainey. My Lainey.”
Every time Carver was described…. I kept picturing the hulk! When he walked the ground would shake. His whole body was giant size.
And Lainey was this tiny petite person. So small she only went up to Carver’s stomach. But she had Carver’s heart from the beginning. Carver was all in from the moment he laid eyes on Lainey.
“I press our heads together and let her feel me shake. “Feel what you do to me? You make your giant tremble,” I say against her mouth. “That’s nothing compared to what you do to my heart. Nothing.”
He was constantly telling Lainey how he felt about her.
“I will love you and protect you until the end of time. You’re my girl, my obsession, my princess. I love you in a way they haven’t invented yet.”
I loved how Lainey showed and proved to Carver that he was worthy of everything. Her love, being out in society. She gave him a life just as much as him giving her one.
The sex between them was pretty damn hot! I loved how they role played! It worked for me! lol
I can’t wait to read more from my favorite authors. And I’m definitely going to be checking out more of Jess’s Kane books.
