***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** Out of the Blue by Lila Rose

Reactions: 



Title: Out of the Blue
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: Romance
Release Date: October 23, 2018



Blurb

At forty, Lan Davis is looking for his damned picket fence and 2.5 kids. What he doesn’t expect is instead of a wife in the picture, his mind keeps conjuring up images of two men. One, his partner in the force, who is as straight as they came, the other an ex, who he’d hurt but never forgot.

After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him… only maybe they shouldn’t have. It seems a medicated Lan is a truthful one.

Parker Wilding is pissed at the world. His anger builds when his partner refuses medical care after an attack. Instead, Lan entrusts his neighbour to take care of him—a guy Parker doesn’t trust. While he’s aware they share a history, when the past is revealed, the truth shocks the hell out of him.

Being emotionally crushed ten years ago, Easton Ravel hoped he would never have to see the man who broke him again. Hope is a fickle b*itch. And now he’s not sure how to handle being face-to-face with the man he once loved. Add in the mix the annoying, testy Parker, and Easton finds his limits are pushed.

Just not in the way he thought they would be.

What happens next sure does come out of the blue.






Review

COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!! Turn off the Internet, Silence your phone and get comfortable for an amazing MMM heaven read!!

This book is part of the Hawks MC series but i think you can read it as a standalone.

Lan and Parker are detectives and are unofficial members of the Hawks MC. They deal out their own form of justice when the law doesn't allow them to. They work well together which is good as Parker doesn't like many people.

At the end of the last book we meet Easton. Lan and Parker were helping out the Hawks when a paramedic was called. Easton comes across a person from his past he's tried to forget about. The one who broke his heart. Lan.

Since Easton, Lan has never been with another man. He has so much guilt about their ending that he wants to put things right even if it's just a friendship he can salvage with Easton he wants it but Easton refuses to talk.

A twist of fate and an ex work partner force Lan and Easton together again.

Easton isn't happy that Lan is back in his life. He's never got over him and the hurt he inflicted but his morals and job force him to deal with him. But it's not just him. Parker is always around and he drives Easton crazy. 

Parker got a shock when he found out his partner Lan is Bisexual. He never knew him to be with anyone but women. He doesn't have a problem with it but after an under the influence kiss between him and Lan he starts to get confused. He has no idea where these feelings are coming from. After Lan and Easton start talking again his curiosity gets worse. He's never liked men before so why now. Why does the thought of Lan and Easton together get his blood pumping. 

All three of their lives interconnect and force them to spend time together. Can Lan make his dreams come true and get Easton to forgive him? Can Easton learn to trust Lan again and give him the happily ever after he always wanted? Where can Parker fit into it all? 

I bloody loved this book!! Every single thing about it i loved. I've read all the Hawks books so all the characters from those are in my heart anyway but these three... GAH i love em!!!

Lan is a little bit bossy and a whole lot of sexy. Protective and strong and so darn hot!!! After the way he treated Easton the first time round i was a little disappointed in him but boy does he turn it around and quickly thank goodness!! I love how open he is about his love for East. He's just so honest and i love this about him there's no bull just him.

East is just so adorable but in a hot way. Not that, that makes sense he's a bit of a contradiction. Cute and sweet and kind of innocent but then he's got another side where he's hot and open and willing and tough and he's so bloody lovable!! Instantly i fell for him and i can definitely see why Lan couldn't let him go. 

and Finally Parker. So grumpy and broody and angry at the world but when he opens up what you see in his heart is pain and hope. Pain for his past but with Lan and East he has hope and it broke my heart for him. He's a pretty intense character and his fight against his feelings will have you willing him to make the right choice. I think i probably love him the most. His journey is the hardest but so bloody rewarding.

The three of them together i swear nearly set my kindle alight. HOT HOT HOT. The love scenes blew me away! Lady tingles aplenty especially when Parker made 3! 

It's just an excellently written story. You kick off with a bang (pun intended) then it slows a little and then it picks back up again then slows, then back again. It's such a brilliant roller-coaster ride of a book it was impossible to put down. I never wanted it to end!

Amazing to see pretty much all the Hawks in here it's always great to catch up with them. I'm now looking forward to Gamers story!! Hopefully next! 

This series (Ballarat and Caroline Springs) is turning out to be one of my all time favorites, there's a great mix in it, something for every taste and i have a taste for them all. Pure brilliance.

5 It's a new fave stars

***RELEASE BOOST & REVIEW*** Sins of the Father by Marie James

Reactions: 



Title: Sins of the Father: A Ravens Ruin Novel
Series: Ravens Ruin 
Author: Marie James
Genre: MC/Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 11, 2018

Blurb

I didn’t want the legacy of leading my father’s MC.

I didn’t want to be him.

I didn’t want to feel soul-deep attraction to the girl my sister brought home from school.

But, we don’t always control our destinies, do we?

As the new President of the Ravens Ruin MC, I had a list of changes that needed to be made for the club.

The same woman in my bed night after night wasn’t on that list.

Yet, here I am, sheets tangled, skin smelling like hers, and a devious smile on my face.






Review
Goodness me!!!! Dark, gritty and kinky. My first taste of a Marie James book. Won't be the last! Hooked!!!

This is the first book in this new MC series.

Lynch is the newly appointed President of Ravens Ruin MC. To get there the previous president had to die. It was his father. Lynch is adjusting to his new position and organizing the MC. After their first church there's a party. His sister turns up unexpectedly from school with her friend Candi.

Candi has a bucket list. A hot biker is on that list and she's determined to fulfill her fantasies. While looking for her friend she walks past a doorway only to see a couple in full swing. She's intrigued and when the man in there invites her in she's powerless to stop herself. 

Lynch hasn't met a girl like Candi before. The feelings she invokes in him is foreign to him and he's determined to fight it every step of the way.

Candi never lets anyone tell her what she can and can't do. When Lynch tries she fights back but she's powerless against him because her heart starts to get involved even when she knows it will only end in tears.

It's a battle of wills. Can either of them win?

I'm so in love with this book!! It really surprised me in the best way. As i said this is my first read of this author so i had no clues what i was in for but to my pure joy it was the best book surprise you can get.

Firstly the characters. I loved Lynch!! I mean i shouldn't because damn that man was pretty mean. He was grumpy and bossy and arrogant and infuriating but good lord was he hot!! I felt all kindsa wrong being turned on by him but phhheewwww was i?!?!?!?! 

Candi was a great match up for him. She was strong and no nonsense but with just the right amount of softness to attract Lynch and draw him in. Also she was pretty sexy without even trying and her bucket list got a hell of a lot shorter by the end of the book i can tell you!!

Secondly the whole storyline for me was just so engaging and unique i couldn't put the book down. My rapt attention was solely on this book and nothing could tear me away from it. I found myself thinking about it long after i had finished. It just excited me!! I loved the no holds barred approach this author took from the MC aspect to the relationship aspect of the main characters. The kink and anything goes sex scenes blew me away! There's quite a lot going on and it's all written really really well so you could easily follow it. 

Besides Lynch and Candi i found myself constantly thinking ahead to who will be next? Who will have their stories told? i'm soooo excited!!! I think that's what i loved the most. YAY!!! A new author and new series to get my teeth into!!! I can't wait!!!! 

The whole MC has my heart along with the girls too!! I think i'm gonna be looking forward to TJ's story the most... or Briar... or Smalls.... or Ronan... or WAIT Professor!!! OK Maybe all of them lol

A really exciting brilliant MC book!!! Original and hot as all hell!!! Go get it!!!

5 Stars!!

I’m not misunderstood.

I’m not confused about my position in life.

I’m not looking for answers to explain why I am the way I am.

This is the logic others use to try to make sense of me. According to them, there has to be a reason for my apathy. There has to be some sort of explanation for the calculating way I run my Club. There has to be a root cause for my depravity.

They can’t wrap their heads around the fact that I’m evil, that I’m darkness personified. Doing so would force them to acknowledge that the Devil has left Hell and is living among them.

Most people may think I’m Satan, but I answer to Lynch, President of the Ravens Ruin MC, and the Antichrist doesn’t have sh*t on me.

The moment I looked into his eyes, I knew I was in trouble.
The second I heard his name, I knew I should stay away.
Our fathers were mortal enemies—Chicago crime bosses from rival families.
But that didn’t stop Leo Conti from pursuing me.
Being together was dangerous, reckless, and totally hot.
He wanted me. I wanted him.
Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?

Review

'm loving this series!!! I mean it's a spin off of one of my fave families the Gallos whats not to love?

Daphne is working hard in her family bar and playing when she can which doesn't seem to be much just lately.

Her brother is getting married and she knows there's no hope of a happy O from this wedding as everyone there is family or friends. During celebrations her father turns up. Fresh out of prison he promises he has changed his ways. 

Deciding to get drunk Daphne hits the hard stuff. After a near total embarrassment fall in front of everyone her rescuer turns out to be the hottest man she's ever seen. When she finds out who he is she hits the alcohol harder. He's someone that could cause war if she got with him. 

Leo is looking out for his family when he crashes the wedding. He's concerned for his and his siblings safety after hearing his fathers old enemy is back in town. He didn't expect to encounter a beautiful, fiery woman who he has more feelings for a in a few hours than he ever has anyone else. He knows this could cause trouble for his family but he refuses to let her go. The problems are not theirs and he doesn't see why they can't be together.

I loved the storyline! It was very Romeo and Juliet and i loved the romance of the star crossed lovers. Both characters were great. Leo was a slightly bossy alpha but not over the top. He knew when to back down and when to come on strong. Daphne was fun and fiery and very much a strong Italian woman. She also had a soft fun side which i loved too.

It was great seeing Lucio and Delilah again and all the rest of the family too even our old faves!! But i seriously can't wait for Vinnie's book!!! 

The only reason I've marked it down slightly is because i didn't think it was long enough. I really wanted a full on lengthy book. I think this story could have gone so much further and had a lot more depth to it. It felt a little crammed in and i personally would have liked more. It wasn't enough to spoil it but i was very aware of it. Other than that love love loved!!! 

I'll always recommend a book on this wonderful family and this is no different.

4 Stars!!!!

Not Every Scar is Visible…

What do you do when the girl you want can’t even remember your name?
This pretty, petite, long-legged, fiery girl who makes me weak in the knees. Of all the chicks who flirt with me, hang around me, I could have my pick but no… I want psycho girl.
One day she ignores my existence, and the next she smiles and talks to me as if she knows me, as if she wants me.
What the hell is she playing at? She’s driving me up the wall.
I want her so bad I can’t think straight.
It’s the last thing I need, with these strange nightmares that plague my nights and make me wonder whether something happened in my past.
Something I can barely remember.
Memories of a bogeyman, and a body, and blood, and fear unlike any I’ve ever felt in my life.
Between the dreams and this sexy psycho-girl, I might as well be losing my mind.
Unless I find out what’s going on, get the girl and lay the bogeyman to rest for good…

Review

Awww been waiting for Merc and he didn't disappoint.

Merc in previous books has been kinda sweet and not troubled at all but if you know this author you know there's something going on under the surface.

Merc has terrible nightmares. He's plagued by them. Often keeping him awake for days at a time. He doesn't know the significance of them but they are pretty much the same every time. He tries to hide that it's bothering him and carries on as the fun guy everyone knows. 

While at college Merc keeps encountering a girl he has the hots for but she keeps throwing him mixed signals. Sometimes friendly other times it seems like she forgets who he is. She fascinates him but he's not sure he has time for hot and cold.

Cos is at the same college as Merc while she helps her sister Sophie who is looking after her ex who is very ill. Cos jumps in to help her sister because she really hasn't got much going on in her life. She's kind of floating through life not knowing what she wants to do. She doesn't feel like anywhere is home. 

They eventually go out for coffee and they both feel the connection they have but Merc's nightmares are getting worse. His new room mate and Cos both start to worry about him. He's losing days through exhaustion. 

Merc knows he has to figure out why he keeps having these dreams but how? Can Cos help him? Will his family have any insight? 

You know what i love about this story? The fact it's not as heavy as some of the others in this series. Although what unfolds is serious it's not the main characters that are tortured as such. 

Merc is the sweet guy you knew he would be. He was just plagued by these nightmares and i was really happy that Cos was able to help him. 

Cos is also a sweet girl. She's a little insecure about herself but i loved her growth over the course of the book as she settled into her place in life. 

I loved seeing past characters popping up and although I've hated him thus far i am really looking forward to Ross's story. I actually started to feel sorry for him so that one should be a good one! 

There's little sub-plots along the way which will throw you for a loop and leave you desperate for the rest of the series! The storyline kept me engaged from start to finish and i just love the family vibe that goes on throughout.

Looking forward to the next one!! Fabulous book and amazing series that will give you lots of the boy torture, and girl torture, you come to expect from Ms Raven.

5 Stars
