Really F*cking Complicated by Rachel Schneider Spotlight Tour & Review

 

 

 

 

Title: Really F*cking Complicated
Author: Rachel Schneider
Genre: New Adult/RomCom
Cover Design: Murphy Rae with Indie Solutions
Release Date: November 7, 2017

 

 

What does a Hollywood Actress – with a leaked sex tape – have in common with a pizza delivery boy? Absolutely nothing.

She is one hot mess…

A walking, talking, Hollywood cliche, Falcon James is hiding out in the middle-of-nowhere Louisiana, on a mission to clean up her image, clean up her personal life, and avoid any kind of scandal. At all costs.

He is one hot single dad…

The last thing Jeremy needs is someone interfering with the life he’s built in the quaint country town he grew up in. Between working odd jobs to pay the bills, the town’s loose-lipped gossips, and raising his impressionable young daughter, something is bound to give. But when one routine pizza delivery turns into an unlikely friendship, Jeremy knows he’s in over his head.

With the bright lights of Hollywood beckoning Falcon back, how can they keep their feelings in check? Feelings that just make everything…really effing complicated.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gosh I’m not sure how best to describe how I feel about this book.  I’m going to be honest this was my first time reading a book by this author.  The blurb, Hollywood actress, sex tape a few pizza delivery boy caught my attention, I’m glad I took a chance.  This book was amazeballs, like seriously we have baby momma drama, tabloid drama, paparazzi, laugh out loud moments, crawfish, a little girl who isn’t afraid to outshine the boys on the softball field and some steamy sex.  The title Really Fu*cking Complicated perfectly describes this story.

 

The relationship between Jeremy and Falcon was not made of glitz and glamor, nope this had a realistic feel to it.  Being in the public’s eye is hard and the author shows the audience how hard Falcons life is albeit fictional we see the struggles and the need to be normal.  Jeremy’s life is hard some of it I blame on him but I easily related.   You want to do what’s best for your child and for him his daughter Charlene needs to go first.  In order to give a child the best you work numerous jobs.  Give your child the moon.   Agree to live your life the only way your manipulative ex won’t make trouble for you.  Never once thinking about yourself and what will happen when you realize you want more. Jeremy was like every parent I know in life, the struggles are real.

 

Jeremy and Falcon’s relationship wasn’t a quick one. It developed gradually which also added to my love of this book.  They both have crazy lives and need to find a balance in their complicated lives.  This book was refreshing just as it was entertaining.  I enjoyed the easy flow of writing and the touch of reality the author continued to show through out the book.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a realistic feel of a book, it will make you cry, scream and laugh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rachel Schneider is from a small town in South Louisiana. When she’s not replying sarcastically to her husband or trying to sneak in cuddles with her daughter, she’s writing about life, love, and things unexpected. But let’s be real…she’s probably on Facebook.

“I need a reason to exist.”

A stain on society. A scourge. A waste. Outsider. Prisoner…

Any idyllic dream of the normal life she may have once imagined, Lilith buried long ago. Her only plan now is survival.

American King by Sierra Simone Blog Tour & Review

TOUR_AMERICANKING.jpg

 

 

Enthralling and drop dead gasp-worthy.

– CD Reiss, New York Times Bestselling Author

American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is available NOW!!

 

 

American-King-PRINT-FOR-WEB

 

 

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

 

 

Excerpt

 

When I was twenty-two, I met a prince. He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful. Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician’s resume. I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me.

Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can’t describe. It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual. It was a fact, even if it couldn’t be seen.

And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight? When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby? No. I wasn’t an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn’t tolerate in other people was a lack of it.

I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn’t get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time.

And it was over.

Done.

One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished. One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling. Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer.

I’d never seen a boy so beautiful. Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I’d ever seen.

I still pinned him against the wall, though. And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate. As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.

On November 22, 2016, I took a chance on a book I just so happened to come across on Amazon. I read the synopsis and said yes this book sounds like it was written just for me.  That book was called American Queen.

On March 7, 2017, American Prince went live and I could’ve received a medal for the world’s fastest reader that day. I remember the high I had that day when I started reading was like a kid on Christmas morning.

On October 23, 2017, I was informed that American King was in my possession. I was as giddy as a school girl on the last day of class.  And now that I’m done, I’m left reeling and wondering just where the hell am I supposed to go from here?!  Sierra Simone has quite possibly ruined me for all other trilogies.

“I want to know this isn’t in vain. I want to know my life wasn’t in vain.”

We finally get to delve into Ash’s mind and see just what he’s been thinking this whole time. We get to see how a man who is perceived to be one of the most powerful men on earth is actually extremely vulnerable inside and will do anything and I mean anything for the one’s he loves.  

While this book is mostly in Maxen’s POV, we do get a bit of Embry, Greer and someone else who you will definitely want to hear from. Through Maxen we have flashbacks to the past to understand just how he got to this point in his life and why.  At this point in the trilogy, I would hope that you have picked up on the underlying mythology that has been being foreshadowed throughout the first two books.  In this one, you will learn it all and I do believe you are in for a treat.

American King reaffirms the reason you fell in love with this threesome to begin with. It will make you happy.  It will make your heart hurt so much you might cry.  It will make you blush and look around to see if anyone is watching you read all these sexy times.  It will make your stomach twist with knots that you beg to go away because you know if they don’t that life as you know it will never be the same.  It will also show you that when you truly love someone (“someones”) all the sacrifices you are willing to make to keep them safe.

Two words to describe this book…soul shattering.

One word to describe this series…M.A.G.N.I.F.I.C.E.N.T.

“…once upon a time, there were two warriors who loved the same woman as much as they loved each other. And everything that happened afterwards led inevitably to tragedy.”

Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) by Annabeth Albert **Josie’s Review**

Their love is forbidden, but their hearts aren’t listening to rules and regulations… 

Lieutenant Dustin Strauss is a reformed man. No longer a twentysomething hell-raiser, he’s his SEAL team’s new XO—and a man with a secret. Or seven. He’s kept his bisexual identity under wraps for years, along with his kinky side and a fondness for the military-themed semianonymous hookup website Joe4Joe. His latest chat buddy is more than a sexy online distraction—they’re taking their very not-safe-for-work relationship into real time.

Petty Officer Wes Lowe has a smart mouth, a take-charge attitude and an uncanny ability for making things go boom. The life of an enlisted man isn’t always enough to satisfy him, but one wild, no-questions-asked weekend with his online love comes close. When a transfer order comes in, Wes feels ready and centered. He’ll make a good impression on his new SEAL team and keep his growing feelings for Dustin on the down low.

But as they log more time online and some very real emotions surface, Dustin and Wes struggle to pretend they’re just a harmless fling. And when his commander introduces Dustin to his team’s newest member, they’re in for the shock of a lifetime…and a crushing disappointment: their difference in ranks means even a friendship without sexual contact could end their navy careers for good.

With their hearts on the line, Dustin and Wes may not survive their next mission, let alone find a way toward a future together.

 This story is a story of a forbidden romance and it has it angst, drama, heartache and kinky sex. All the things I love in a story.

 

Dustin is bisexual, he’s good at flirting and coming on to females but not confident with males. While on a military dating site he meets Wes and the two decide to meet up in DC after many months of talking to one another. There first meeting or interaction was comfortable, two friends getting together, no pressure. Well that was the plan anyways. Wes understood Dustin’s discomfort about coming out. What ends up happening is one pretty smoking hot night, one that opens Dustin up to wanting more.

 

Dustin is a lieutenant and a kick ass Navy Seal. I swear to you I can picture what this character looks like based on his description, gorgeous, rugged and huge. He’s loyal, passionate and strong.

 

Wes has recently joined the SEALS and his specialty is explosives. He is a good person who loves his family and I feel for him instantly. He has a sister with a life threatening heart disease and his love, devotion and unconditional love gave me goosebumps.

 

Dustin and Wes are perfect for each other. Dustin has to be in control in uniform and with his team but behind closed doors he loves to give up the resigns. Wes follows orders all day that’s his job but in the bedroom he loves giving the orders and being in control.

 

The chemistry between them after their first meeting was hot and I also felt their connection. I couldn’t help but notice they were meant to be. But life in the military and fully coming out through a wrench in their plans because guess who is Wes’ new commanding officer, Dustin. Fraternization is frowned upon could put their hard earned careers at risk.

 

I loved how they both tried to do the right thing but the heart wants what the hearts wants. There’s some drama for both men but they looked out for one another, nurtured and cared for one another. Dustin has a lot pressure with accepting and embracing his bisexuality. As with the stories in the past the secondary characters play a huge role and make a great impact on Dustin and Wes’ life. I was afraid to see how things would turn out but I needn’t worry this author always knows how to make true love win every time. This was a great addition to this series.

Fury by MariaLisa deMora Release Blitz & Review

 

Title: Fury
Series: Rebel Wayfarers MC, #11
Author:  MariaLisa deMora
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: November 6, 2017
#FuryandBethySittingInATree

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis

 

Fury has made a name for himself in club life as a member and officer who calls things like he sees ‘em, and not a man to put up with lies and deceit. When he takes time to think about it, he finds the reputation amusing considering the kind of guy he used to be.

 

Full description:
As soon as he could, Gabe Ledbetter fled his family’s home in the mountains of Kentucky. Those hills and valleys were undeniably beautiful, but they masked a painful legacy of loss and betrayal. Gabe counted himself fortunate to have gotten out, his scream-filled nightmares a reminder that not everyone had been as lucky.
Gabe, now called Fury, has built a family for himself with the men he calls brothers.
Over time, he worked his way from club to club, managing to climb the ladder of responsibility until in his small world he was the top dog. Big man, but one with an empty bed.
Bethany Mason-Taylor has lived her whole life in survival mode. From her first memories of a traumatic childhood, it always felt as if she were skating a mere stone’s throw ahead of disaster. Everything finally seems to be on track for success, and now that she’s put her most embarrassing fiasco behind her, managing the come-back tour for a band signed by her brother’s record label should be a breeze.
That is until one gloriously handsome redhead slipped into her hotel room and derailed all of Bethy’s carefully laid plans. She’s the forbidden fruit, sister of his MC president. He’s her ultimate weakness. Oh yeah, this is gonna be fun.

Excerpt
From Chapter Ten
Bethany
“I know there are a few more things I should deal with today,
but I’m beat, guys and gals.” Six faces turned and looked at Bethany. “Two more interviews and I’m calling it, going to head to the hotel. This trip piled on top of a few busy days back in Nashville means my bed is calling.”
“You must have been up before daybreak to get to the airport,”
Chase said, reaching over and grabbing a handful of chips. “No wonder you’re beyond tired.”
Looking around the room, she noted the band members had all
stopped their activities. Apparently, her announcement provided the permission they needed to switch back to lounging around, bottles of water and soft drinks in hand. At least their nerves were eased by today’s early interviews. Benny was an old hand at this, but the rest of the group were less polished. Bethy glanced over at her nephew with a grin, thinking it was a good thing Mason hadn’t told Chase about the gig ahead of time. As it was, the young man looked
wrung out. She knew if he’d had even a couple of extra days to worry and fuss, he would be a whole other level of exhausted. She was about to offer to take him to the hotel too when the door abruptly opened.
Bethy’s breath caught in her chest as she watched a striking redhead walk in, complete with a full, thick beard and an attitude of owning
all the space around him. It’s just not fair, she thought, assuming he was one of the radio promoters. Why are the good-looking ones always in out of the way places like Lamesa?
Benny stood, hand out, evidently thinking the same thing about
the guy, but before she could move forward, Chase was hooting with laughter, yelling, “Fury, dude. Totally didn’t expect to see you here!” He turned to her, a delighted grin in place on his face as he introduced them, “Aunt Bethy, this is Fury. He’s one of Dad’s trusted few in Fort Wayne.” Twisting, he held out a hand to point at her, speaking to Fury, “This is my best Aunt Bethy. She’s the
coolest. She runs the record label for Dad, and signed Benny’s band.”
Standing slowly, she took the look Fury was giving her, half-appraising and half-aggravated. She held out her hand to shake, and when he wrapped his fingers around hers, she felt a zinging awareness of him zip through her and watched his eyes widen and then develop a laser intensity as he studied her. Shoulders rising and falling as he pulled in a deep breath, he reintroduced himself, “Fury. Otherwise known as your escort while in town.”
With a nod, she responded, “Bethany Mason-Taylor, otherwise
known as the awesome Aunt Bethy.”
He smiled at her, white teeth flashing in the midst of that dark red beard and she found herself smiling back at him. Damn.

I’m a huge fan of this author and have read and loved all the Rebel Wayfarer MC books. Fury is Bethany and Gabe story and this one was just as amazing as the others. This author is very talented, she meticulously and strategically connects the stories of different characters into similar time lines.  These story as with Fury’s are filled with heartache, betrayals, and are painful.  I always find an underlying message within the words of this authors writings.  The journey is a long one, one that has so many ups and downs but I know that at the end things will work out.

 

Bethany is Mason’s little sister, and there’s nothing little about this character.  I usually fall in love with the men in this stories but Bethany won this one hands down.  She’s gone through so much in life but came out stronger.  Despite being betrayed she has a heart of gold and is loyal to those she loves.  I bonded with this character instantly, just like in the real world we all make mistakes and we grow from said mistakes.  Bethany’s character was just like that she never let her mistakes hold her back, well except for a sexy red headed biker that is.

 

Fury, I’m sorry I needed him to suffer more.  Moving on in the past he was known as Gabe and his past with Bethany wasn’t pretty.  It was ugly, I’m talking junk punch ugly.  Over the years Fury has changed, his mistakes and his regrets led him to be a better man and a Rebel Wayfarer member.  His paths takes him right back to the very woman who has occupied his heart and mind for years.

 

Fury and Bethany’s past, present and future was laid out perfectly in this story.  It’s a story filled with pain, joy and promises.  Besides winning back Bethany’s heart we are also settling some old scores.  I’m not going to say much because if you haven’t read this series I’ll blow things wide open.  I was so glad to that some scores were settled and to see some of my favorite Rebel Wayfarers from previous books.  I love how this author has made me part of the Rebel Wayfarer family just by the use of her words. I always can count on getting lost inside her stories that I forget I’m actually not there.  I’d hate to see this series end, I’m grateful that there are still more  characters screaming to be heard and some unresolved  matters left to be resolved . Highly Recommend!

Miss Fix-It by Emma Hart Review Blitz

 

 

 

One handywoman.

One single dad.

One set of twins.

And the wall isn’t the only thing being drilled…

I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares—the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.

Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.

Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession—me.

On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.

In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.

I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.

And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.

Oops…

“Deal with it,” I echoed, my mouth dry. “What exactly do you mean by that?”
He glanced at my mouth.
“Okay, but, um, here’s the thing.” I couldn’t breathe. I sounded like a panting idiot trying to get the words out between each short, sharp breath I took. “This,” I motioned between us, “is bad.”
“Bad.” His lips tugged to the side.
“Yes. Because,”—help. Someone help—“because this isn’t allowed. Company rules. No cavorting with clients.”
“No cavorting with clients.” That half-smile turned into a full-blown grin. “That’s very…proper.”
“Well, I can’t exactly put, “No sleeping with the clients” now, can I?”
“You could have, but it would have been unfortunately precise.”
“I should change that.”
“I disagree.”
I licked my lips. “You should agree. Because this is—”
“Bad. You said.” More lip twitching.
“I thought you were sorry you made it awkward by kissing me.”
“That was before I found out you were attracted to me. Now, I’m a lot less sorry I kissed you.”
Oh. Well. Fair enough.
“Should I take back my acceptance of your apology?” I asked.
“You should stop talking and see how you feel when I’ve kissed you again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the story of Kali. She lost her mother when she was a teenager and learned how to fix things soon after her mother died. She took over her fathers business as an adult. She lives in a small town and even though she is good at her job she still gets looks of shock when she is called to do a job and they realize it is a woman that will be fixing things or building things not a man.

 

When Brantley Cooper moves to this small town with this twins two years after the mother of his children dies of cancer and calls Kali to do work on his house, Kali’s views about her future and how she sees things takes a turn.

 

  “I was shallow and selfish, and I was okay with that. I didn’t picture my life with kids in it. I was the person who, when asked, “when are you having kids?” said, “Never. I don’t’ want them.”

 

I loved the chemistry between both Brantley and Kali but what made this book for me was the family dynamics between Brantley and his kids. I think his kids made this book a 4 star read for me.  I loved the conversations between the twins and also between Kali or Brantley and the kids. My heart hurt for them a few times. I loved how Brantley tried to be both a mom and dad and was able to accept that he wasn’t perfect but he had to try for the kids.

 

  “You make me laugh,”he said softly, as if he could read my mind. “Sometimes, it feels like I’m nothing more than Dad. But, with you…when you’re around…you make me feel like I’m me again. The person, not just the parent. Almost…Happy.”

 

The story was well written and had a good flow to it. I loved that the author didn’t feel the need to make up useless drama and kept the plot simple but effective in getting the point across. The story was heart-breaking at points and at others had me reading with a huge smile across my face. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish and look forward to reading more by this author. Her writing style kept me hooked and turning those pages and not wanting to skim any of it. Cute story and executed perfectly.

“Most men don’t like overweight women, Matthew.”

He snorted. “You’re not overweight. You’re fucking perfect.”
“I’m not. We both know I’m not, but thank you for saying it.”
“No,” he said, capturing my face in his hands and forcing me to look him in the eye. “Listen to me. I don’t give a fuck what anyone says; you’re perfect.”
He kissed the tip of my nose.
“Beautiful inside and out.”
He kissed my right cheek.
“Sexy as hell.”
He kissed my left cheek.
“And I’m so honored that you’re here with me right now because I’m no fool; I know you’re too good for me. What I’m doing with you is wrong, and I know that. You deserve so much better than me, but I can’t stay away from you.”
I kissed him, tasting all that he was. “Then don’t,” I whispered again his lips.
He kissed me hard, pulling a soft moan from the back of my throat. My body pressed into his, begging for him. Ready. So completely ready.
“You’re driving me crazy, Red.”
“No. You’re driving me crazy.”
He backed away, pulling me to a standing position. He reached for the hem of my dress and began lifting it.
“I know you hate them, but I only have one question.” His hand slid up the inside of my thigh before he dipped a finger in the top of my panty line and ran it across my lower stomach. “Will you let me lick all your curves?”
Biting my lip, I nodded.
He tugged my dress over my head, leaving me in nothing but my bra and panties. His eyes devoured my body as he smacked my hands away when I tried to cover myself. Slowly, he peeled my bra straps down and began undoing the back of my bra.
He leaned over, latching onto my nipple, and a wild moan escaped my lips. I had never felt anything so potent. Every time he sucked on my nipple, a tugging sensation pulled at my clit as if he was sucking there, as well.
While he worked my breasts, his fingers slipped into my panties, pushing them down my ass and over my thighs until they were loose enough to drop to my ankles. He tickled my hip, his fingers walking their way over my flesh until he was teasing my clit with the tip of his finger.
“Oh, my God. Matthew,” I breathed his name.
He captured my cheeks in his other hand, pinching slightly to get me to look him in the eye.
“I’m going to stick my fingers in first. I want to touch you inside.” He breathed. “This is your warning. Don’t freak out on me, okay?”
I nodded, ready to feel some form of penetration. My inner walls were clenching, pushing my juices out with the want to be filled.
His fingers moved down from my clit, sliding over my soaked folds until his middle finger was circling my opening. I thrust, not being able to wait any longer, and he chuckled, the deep vibrations of his laughter sending a wave of longing through me.
“Slow down, baby, I’m going to ease that ache soon enough.”
I melted. The way he was talking to me and touching me was driving me toward an orgasm.
His fingers swiped around my center once again, and I whined, needing to feel him before I burst. I was seconds away from begging when he pressed two fingers into me, bending his fingers deep.
I sighed in relief.
My knees went weak, and I leaned onto the countertop, hoping it would keep me from falling.
“Is this okay?” he asked, his blazing blue eyes lingering on my face.
“Yes. Please, Matthew,” I begged, needing more of everything he was giving me.
He pulled his fingers out a bit, my body naturally trying to suck them back in. Then he thrust once more, pulling them out and pushing them back in, in a rhythm that had my toes curling into the wood flooring beneath my feet. His thumb glided over my clit sending a jolt of sensation through me until I began to shiver.
“I love seeing you like this,” he breathed. “Look at you. You like having my fingers inside you, don’t you, Red?”
I nodded, wishing I could speak over the heavy breaths that pushed from my body.
“Say it, Shannon. Tell me you like it.”
He fucked me with his fingers faster, pushing me toward the brink and holding me over the edge.
 
“I-I-I do,” I stuttered. “I like it so much.”

Snake (No Prisoners MC #5) by Lilly Atlas Review Tour

 

 

 

Title: Snake
Series: No Prisoners MC #5
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: October 31, 2017

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

At the height of power, one ruthless misstep crumbles Snake’s kingdom in an instant. Beaten within inches of his life, betrayed by his own club, and left for dead, he has nothing remaining to focus on but healing and revenge.

 

Physical Therapist, Amanda, thinks she’s seen it all. Then, she meets Nick, a broken man who has sustained the most severe beating she’s ever encountered. Surly, brooding, and angry, he should be a nightmare patient. But under the rough exterior lies a man determined to overcome his devastating injuries, a quality Amanda can’t help but be drawn to. Plus, he’s ridiculously attractive, to the point she finds she can’t stay away.

 


 

Women like Amanda—kind, sweet, intelligent, independent, respectable—don’t exist in Snake’s world. When she offers him a place to live after his hospital stay, he can’t turn her down. The more time they spend together, the more torn he becomes between two realities: a gruesome MC world full of lies, betrayal, and hatred, or a life with Amanda that promises healing and peace.

 


 

As Snake helps Amanda through some troubling times, passion flares. For once, he actually cares about a woman and it’s enough to make him question everything. After leading a life as a dedicated outlaw, is it too late to change? And if not, is he willing to leave his vendetta behind?

 

Blackness surrounded Snake like a shroud.

“He still alive?” A shrill, pissed-off voice cut through Snake’s hazy confusion, making him jump.

He tried to open his eyes, but they might as well have been glued shut.

“Think so. The bastard makes a wheezy, gurgling noise every so often. I’m surprised he lasted the whole trip. That big man worked him over good. His face is unrecognizable. Look how swollen his fucking eyes are,” a second man said, his voice as well known as the first, yet not identifiable.

“That big man who kicked his trash was Jester. Ol’ man of the bitch we kidnapped,” the first man said. The high-pitched, almost whiny quality of his voice seemed so familiar, but just on the edge of recognition. In fact, both voices seemed to hover on the outskirts of Snake’s reality. Like they were coming from a television. Present, but not real. And still, nothing but darkness.

Pain, however, was there in real time. That was for damn sure. But even the hurt was difficult to place. It seemed to come from every pore in his body. But that wasn’t possible, was it?

“What’s the plan here, boss?” A third man spoke up.

Maybe he should say something. Ask for help. Snake moved his mouth to speak, but only a garbled mess of unintelligible sounds came out.

And then the pain localized.

Holy shit, his face throbbed like it had been pounded repeatedly with a sledgehammer. Inside his mouth, his tongue occupied the entire cavity like a balloon, making speaking near impossible. He dragged in a breath, but the air met resistance before it ever reached his lungs, blocked by a throat that felt swollen shut. Choking coughs racked him, jacking the pain to an unbearable level.

Snake registered the laundry list of things happening with his body and recognized that he should probably be in panic mode. Everything was fuzzy and he couldn’t get himself together enough to make sense of his reality.

“Pull him out of the van and toss him down the ravine. I’ll fire a couple slugs in him. See how overgrown it is down there? He’ll rot out here long before anyone ever finds the body.”

God, that voice…it was dancing on the edges of Snake’s diminishing consciousness. So memorable…

“You got it, boss.”

Rough hands grabbed under his shoulders and around his legs, jerking him forward. In the next second, he was airborne. The weightless flight couldn’t have lasted more than five seconds, before a crushing jolt and the insane sensation of the world spinning out of control ensued. His stomach lurched as he rolled and rolled. Jagged rocks and branches tore at his clothes and skin, bringing even more pain. His battered face mashed into the ground with each revolution until dirt and bits of rock clung to his skin.

All the while he struggled to breathe, inhaling soil and choking until it felt like his insides were being shredded. He waited for it all to stop, for death to take him and end the torture. Death had to be close, lurking just past the next rotation.

After what seemed like an eternity, Snake’s broken body slammed against something hard and the tumbling stopped. His head was still spinning out of control, but at least he wasn’t actually moving anymore.

Laughter rang out from a distance. “Shit, brother. Look how he rolled down that ditch like a fuckin’ sack of potatoes. You probably don’t need to waste any bullets, boss. No way he survived that trip. It’s what, twenty feet? And with all those rocks and branches. Something musta smashed in his fuckin’ skull.”

“Yeah, well, Snake’s a slimy bastard. I want to be one hundred percent sure. Can’t have him slithering back into our lives six months down the road,” the higher-voiced man replied.

He tried to move, tried to lift a limb and open his eyes, but there was a disconnect between his body and his brain. None of his muscles obeyed commands and all he could do was lie there, a giant, vulnerable target.

A pinpointed, hot, burning pain bloomed in his thigh, followed by another in his shoulder. Bullets. Hadn’t they said they planned to shoot him?

Odd.

He’d been shot before and it had hurt like a sonofabitch, a lot more than it did now. His brain must be pretty fucked up not to be registering the pain of two bullets. Of course, the rest of his body was one giant ball of agony. Maybe there was a limit to how much pain the flesh could experience. Maybe after the body hit the pain ceiling, it no longer registered something new.

Snake thought he’d known pain before, but it was nothing compared to this full body tormenting sensation. A man didn’t live his kind of life without pain.

His kind of life…

That high-pitched voice…

Recollection was right there. If he could just reach out and grab the fuzzy memories.

“Nice fucking knowing you, Pres.”

The words were called out about three seconds before a final hot flash of pain entered his side. Gut shot. The fatal blow.

Pres…

That high-pitched voice…

As the darkness behind his closed eyes grew even blacker, realization dawned.

President.

Grimm Brothers Motorcycle Club. Sandy Springs, Arizona.

The high-pitched voice. His long time right-hand man. Close and trusted friend. Brother.

Reality faded into the distance, taking some of the pain with it. Would there be peace in death? Not for him. Not going out this way. There were men who had to pay whether now or in the afterlife.

Men like Casper.

His loyal vice president.

A murderous traitor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve read most of the books in the No Prisoners MC series and was glad to finally get Snakes story.  I will start off by saying that although Snakes downfall was MC related most of those book followed Snake and Amanda.  I say that as a good thing because the focus was on the two main characters and I really enjoyed it.

 

Snake was betrayed and left for dead by the brothers he thought would have is back.  Snake should have died but fate and a good samaritan saved his life.  Amanda is a rehabilitation nurse and is brought into Snakes world to help him heal.  It is a long round to his recovery but Amanda makes his progress and time at the hospital worth while.

 

Snake isn’t a nice guy, and his thoughts and his past clearly shed light on this element however we do get to see a different side to him as well.  Amanda is a good character, she’s loyal and enjoys her job even though she has to deal with a creepy ex and a roommate dead set on getting into trouble.

 

Snake is conflicted because he wants revenge but also likes the life he has with Amanda, the woman who doesn’t judge him on his pasts.  There is conflict between Amanda and Snake he knows he’s no good for her and he does some douche like things.  I loved how the author handles their relationship. There is no instant love but more of an attraction that develops into a relationship built on mutual respect.

 

Amanda comes off as naive but she is strong and fierce. She is just the type of person that Snake needs in his life.  Snake loves the MC and revenge is his end goal, but the more time he spends with Amanda the more his focus changes. I loved seeing this big bad and broody biker fighting against his protective and possessive feelings. The author did a great job showing his inner struggles.

 

This was a great read, full of drama, violence,  minor angst and some really great sex.  I love a good MC story and was drawn to the blurb and cover but I really got more than I imagined. This story was by far the best book I’ve read by this author.
