New Release ~ 3.75 Stars for Mess Me Up by Lani Lynn Vale

When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.

Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.

No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone.

Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.

She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.

And he doesn’t even know her name.

He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.

Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.

Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.

Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.

3.75 Stars!

I’m going to just start off with this… make sure you have a box of tissues near by, because this one is a tear jerker.

That being said, it was just okay for me. Why? Because I just didn’t connect with Isadora. I tried. I really did, but…

The story is definitely more than I was expecting from an MC romance. The story was deep and moving and sensitive. Rome broke my heart and I felt his hurt and pain. I appreciated Izzy’s response and support.

A good book, but I would have liked it better if I had connected with Izzy more.

Blog Tour ~ 4 Stars for The Jack by M. K. Harkins

Today we have the blog tour of THE JACK by MK Harkins! Check out the tour and be sure to grab your copy today!

 

Title: THE JACK

Author: MK Harkins

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

About The Jack:

What matters more to Archer: saving the woman he loves but can never have, protecting humanity, or avoiding a prison sentence that would stretch for eternity?

 

Archer is a half breed, caught between two opposing heritages – the Jacks, a bloodthirsty race who kills for sport, and the Readers, a docile race trying to save humankind. Two years ago, he betrayed the Readers, though, in a last-minute change of heart, saved them from ultimate destruction. But now he’s all alone, wallowing in unrequited love.

 

Sadie is an Immortal Seer with a dangerous calling: she must hunt down and destroy the last of the vengeful Jacks. But her quirky humor and gentle spirit make her an unlikely fit for the job.

 

Archer is drawn to Sadie’s pure, kindhearted nature, rekindling hope he might not have to live a solitary life, but he has no idea the danger he’s in.

 

When fate forces the mortal enemies to work together, Sadie must determine which side Archer is on, how much of his charm is real, and if she should follow through with her directive: should she kill him or save him?

4 Stars!!

Poor Archer! Talk about having the weight of the world on your shoulders… or in this case humanity.

This is the first book I have read by M. K. Harkins.

The Jack was a twisty, suspense-filled read. The romance is great, not too angsty and fairly tame. This is because, while the romantic aspect plays a big part in the story, it isn’t the entire story. There are many twists and turns throughout the book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Difficult choices must be made. Consequences must be considered. Sadie and Archer are great characters with interesting backstories. Sadie’s was less developed than Archers, but there was enough.

I enjoyed The Jack, but I think I would have liked it more had I read the first book in the series. My understanding is that they are all interconnected standalones, but I think I would have had a better understanding of their world if I had read The Reader. That being said, I was able to get right into the book and it didn’t deter me in any way.

Blog Tour ~ 4 Stars for Wrecker by Winter Travers

Title: Wrecker

Series: Fallen Lords MC #4

Author: Winter Travers

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: July 29 2018

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4 Stars!

Wrecker is my favorite of the Fallen Lords series! The books in this series keep getting better and Wrecker was pretty great!

If you’ve read the other books in the series, you will know who Alice and Wrecker are. If not, let me enlighten you. Wrecker is the no nonsense president of the Fallen Lords MC. He is big, gruff and tough. Alice is the zany, eclectic friend to the women of the Fallen Lords.

Alice is a great character. She’s always been a little out there and dances to the beat of her own drummer. In her story, she faces personal tragedy and doesn’t handle it well. She is drowning her feelings in alcohol. Wrecker is typical MC – doesn’t want to be tied down, his life is the club. That all changes one night when he runs into Alice and sees her pain and suddenly wants to help. Under his gruff exterior is a big old heart.

I loved that Wrecker’s true nature was revealed. He fought his feelings for Alice valiantly but in the end he couldn’t deny them. Alice also fought those feelings and his help. Travers did a good job writing those feelings and mixing them with the perfect amount of chemistry.

A great MC romance!

Little Shop of Readers – “Holy Hell, this book had me from the get go!!!”

Cheri – “Don’t miss this one. It goes on my re-read and re-read again list. The strongest recommend from me.”

Lynne Garlick – “This couple had me laughing out loud and crying. I think this may be my favourite book to date in this series!!!”

Wrecker lives for the Fallen Lords MC. The club is the only thing he cares about. Until her.

Alice’s world is spiralling. The one person she thought she’d always have is gone, leaving her to pick up the pieces of her own shattered heart. Except, the only way she can find to do that may ruin her.

When Wrecker gets the call to check in on Alice, the woman he finds is just a shell of the outspoken crazy lady he knows her to be. That guts him. He wants the real Alice back, and he’ll stop at nothing to pull her out of the darkness.

 

Winter Travers is a devoted wife, mother, and aunt turned author who was born and raised in Wisconsin. After a brief stint in South Carolina following her heart to chase the man who is now her hubby, they retreated back up North to the changing seasons, and the place they now call home.

Winter spends her days writing happily ever afters, and her nights zipping around on her forklift at work. She also has an addiction to anything MC related, her dog Thunder, and Mexican food! (Tamales!)

Winter loves to stay connected with her readers. Don’t hesitate to reach out and contact her.

Excerpt from A DATE FOR HANNAH (Love Is For Everyone, #1) by Callie Henry. All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission.

“Hey, you know what? You didn’t let me finish my pitch before, when I asked you to go on a date with me.”
She sighed, her eyes losing a little brightness and her smile dimming as she turned away to look at the reception guests on the dance floor. He tilted his head to see her better, and though he didn’t know her well enough to read her expression with accuracy, he saw wariness as her eyebrows knitted together. But when she sucked her lower lip into her mouth, he perceived a little bit of longing too, which made him press his advantage.
“Didn’t you wonder how I knew all that Shakespeare stuff?” he asked.
“Yes, actually,” she said, looking surprised by his question. “Come to think of it, I did wonder, but then you distracted me.”
He grinned. “Good distraction, right?”
She rolled her eyes, but her lips tilted up a little, which made him happy. “You were saying?”
“The OSF is twenty minutes from my house. I worked there taking tickets over spring break last year. So, if you’d like to go with me sometime—as a date—I might even be able to take you backstage. I’m sure Julia would give us a tour of the Allen Elizabethan Theatre.”
“Julia?” said Hannah, raising an eyebrow.
He saw it in her eyes, the way she was mentally backing away from him at the mere mention of another woman. Is that how she saw all men?
As players? As someone who’d hurt her and cheat on her if she let her guard down? He couldn’t help the way his feelings for her surged as he watched her—how much he wanted to be the person to prove to her that she could give her heart to someone who would keep it safe.
Julia is my Mom’s friend who works in group sales, is married, and has two kids.” He pulled Hannah’s hand behind his back, holding it hostage and drawing her closer until her chest pressed against his.
“And to be clear? I wouldn’t ask you out if I was seeing someone else. I don’t do that. I’m not with anyone right now, Hannah … except you.”
She flinched, and her face went utterly blank, except for her eyes, which looked worried and uncomfortable.
“You’re not with me,” she said softly, loosening her hand from his grasp and stepping away from him.
“I didn’t mean—”
“I have to use the ladies’ room. I’ll find you in a little bit, okay?
She turned and started walking away, while he babbled incoherently at her back:
“Wait. Hannah! No. I didn’t…I just—I just meant…Crap!”
He stopped talking when she was out of sight.
Dang it, Liam! Why do you have to be so freaking intense?
Probably because it bothered him that she kept trying to friend-zone him when he didn’t feel friendly toward her and pretty much hadn’t from the moment he’d laid eyes on her.
There were some girls he met—especially the shallow, self-absorbed ones—who turned him off the moment he met them. Most of the popular girls at his high school thought he was trouble, and even after he’d straightened himself out, they didn’t give him a chance. Not really. They’d fool around with him at a party—there was never a shortage of popular girls who wanted to make out with a bad boy—but on Monday morning, they’d act like they were too drunk to remember kissing him. And it sort of sucked, because Liam Callahan was one of those guys who quietly longed for a girlfriend, even though his reputation had pegged him inaccurately as a player.
He wanted to date someone. He wanted to leave a party with her on Saturday night, and hold her hand when he walked into school on Monday morning. He wanted to be the first person she texted when she was happy or upset about something. He wanted to invite her over for dinner with his mom. He wanted to introduce her to his friends:
You guys, this is my girlfriend.
He’d imagined saying those words about a thousand times, but he’d never had the chance to say them, and it bothered him. A lot.
But tonight? Meeting Hannah? Somehow it felt like maybe what he wanted was actually, finally, possible.
When Hannah looked up at him with those huge, vulnerable, dark brown eyes, he felt hopeful.
“Damn it,” he growled softly, frustrated that he’d pushed her too hard.
Maybe he was being pushy, but he liked her, and for all he knew, she was driving back up to Brookings in the morning. He wanted her to say yes to a date—his heart needed to know that he’d see her again.

And when Quentin learns Jade plans to spend her first American summer hiding out reading books, he refuses to be ignored. Sneaking out, staying up, and even a midnight swim, Quentin is determined to give Jade days–and nights–worth remembering.

But despite their storybook-perfect romance, every time Jade moves closer, Quentin pulls away. And when rumors of a jilted ex-girlfriend come to light, Jade knows Quentin is hiding a secret–and she’s determined to find out what it is.

BLURB:

Fans of New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James won’t want to miss this modern—and deliciously wicked—take on a classic fairy tale . . .

She never should have come here. Twice a week, Lily Moore comes to work for me, stealing my breath with her light and beauty and sweetness. She doesn’t know the dangerous path she’s on.

Even as I see the same longing for me in her oh-so-blue eyes, I know she belongs to another—one who does not deserve her. But it’s just a matter of time before the tension between us breaks. For this beast will have what he desires. To hell with the consequences. This is my world . . . and I will claim my beauty.

My Review

3.5 Stars!

A modern day Beauty and the Beast re-telling.

This one is a little different that what you will remember of Beauty and the Beast. There is a Beauty, Lilly, and a Beast, Grayson, but instead of books and a library, this one is art and a studio. The general plot of the book is pretty much the same as the familiar fairytale. Unfortunately, I just didn’t connect with this one. There wasn’t the angst that the original fairytale had and I felt like it took too long for them to give in to their attraction. But, they do get their HEA.

An okay book, just not my favorite.
