Madeleine, Abducted ~ M.S. Willis

Madeleine Abducted (The Estate, #1)Madeleine Abducted by M.S. Willis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

She was meant to be his destruction…
A pawn played in a perilous game between father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could set the son free.

Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.

Seemingly dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse.

A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

My Review:

****Loved different from what I've read before****

The storyline was Seductive, Mysterious & Sophisticated

Aaron is the Executioner and revels in the art of death he's been made into a killing Beast he sees himself as a Monster.

Madeleine is a Cellist who hides behind her music and has become a recluse afraid of what is out there avoiding the unknown.. She's everything Pure and is Beauty in itself.

This was like a Beauty and the Beast Tale!

His father was a man of power and due to drugs and sheer madness ruled his Estate with an iron fist and instills fear, He seemed to have tried everything to drag Aaron even further into his world of Crime, Hence kidnapping Madeleine!

Madeleine even though being the captive was able to set Aaron free of his demons and by doing so became strong and concurred hers as well.
Definitely not for the faint of hearts there was dubious consent, rape, abuse, murder and there were many parts where Aaron was bathed in blood and gore(his weapon of choice was a knife). He enjoyed the kill and found it so much more personal while looking in to his prey's eyes.. Luckily his mouse was able to see past his mask and with Maddy's submission they were able to get their HEA.

Now this was a stand-alone but I would love to know more of Xander and Jason!

Withstanding Me (Breakneck, #2) ~ Crystal Spears

Withstanding Me (Breakneck, #2)Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.
Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.

My Review:

Kinda tough for me since I absolutely Loved Seize Me...There were parts I enjoyed and others I just felt were out of character from the rest of the story and from what I loved so much in the first story..
This one had more humor and a lot less violence and yet had a bit too much going on for me. This will in no way deter me from continuing with the Series..This author is on my Definitely to FOLLOW list and ther are soooo many characters that are so interesting and will bring so much to this world...
Desperately waiting & looking forward to Shadow =0)

Tattered Love (Needle's Kiss, #1) ~ Lola Stark

Tattered Love (Needle's Kiss, #1)

When ex-Special Ops bad-ass Mace walks into Needle's Kiss tattoo parlour, he never expected to find the girl who would turn his life upside down.

Hard as nails Scarlett has been unlucky in love: she’s been burnt, chewed up and spat out. Reluctant to have another relationship, can she keep her wits about her when hot-as-sin Mace walks into her tattoo parlor? Or will he break her down and leave his mark within her ink?

What starts out as a little fun, turns into something so much more.

Can Scarlett look beyond Mace's devastating past or will his demons come back to haunt them both?

Content warning: contains steamy, anywhere-goes sex, an alcohol induced embarrassing night out and two headstrong lovers taken on a whirlwind of crazy.

5 You are my Sunshine Stars...
This book was off the charts full of awesomeness for me..
It opens up introducing Scarlett, a kick ass chick which I was sooo girl crushing on from the start and
Then we meet Mace a total Uber, tatted, pierced Alpha male.. With a sweet side when it counts, so sweet he had me giggling when he was laying it on thick..
It was a super hot, ridiculously entertaining read I couldn't put down.. And the Epilogue was the perfect Segway for the next in the series... One which I will definitely be reading!!!!

I fell in Love with Lola Stark's writing style..

Worth the Fight ~ Vi Keeland

Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1)Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It didn’t matter that the ref called it a clean hit. Nico Hunter would never be the same.

Elle has a good life. A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she’s been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half. But it’s boring…and she strives to keep it that way. Too many emotions are dangerous. Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.

Then Nico walks into Elle’s office and everything changes…for both of them. But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common? A lot more than they bargained for.

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18

My Review:
Heart warming, Feel Good read loved it
Nico is my ideal Book Boyfriend!! he was attentive, loving, jealous (but not in a cave man kinda way)and a family guy.. Once he knew what he wanted he went after it.. Made sure the path was clear and proceeded with no hesitations! everyone has their issues and his was so understandable the guilt was real and relatiable.
Elle made all the right moves and considering she had her own baggage weighing her down she managed to get Nico where he needed to be professionally and mentally.
Loved their HEA and can't wait to read Vince's story and hopefully get some glimpses of Nico & Elle

Definitelty a Favorite for me had the Hot guy, Great smex scenes and a wonderful story!

Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain, #2) ~ Kristen Ashley

Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain, #2)Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lauren Grahame has spent her whole life thinking something special was going to happen. She didn’t know what it was, she just knew it would one day be hers. But she learned the hard way that special wasn’t on offer.

So, after divorcing her cheating husband, Lauren searched for nothing special and she thought she found it when she landed a job as a waitress in a biker bar in Carnal. It was perfect: a nothing job in a nowhere bar in Nowheresville.

Then Tatum Jackson walked in. Part-owner of the bar, he took one look at high-class Lauren and wanted nothing to do with her. And he made this known, loudly.

Tate’s angry insults seared in her brain, Lauren decides the feeling is mutual and she doesn’t want anything to do with the gloriously handsome Tate Jackson. The clash of the bartender and barmaid begins but, even though Tate makes his change of mind clear (in biker-speak, a language Lauren is not fluent in), Lauren is intent on going her own way.

Until a serial killer hits Carnal and Lauren finds out Tate isn’t a bartender, he’s a bounty hunter. He stakes his claim for Lauren before he goes on the hunt for a killer but Laurie doesn’t speak biker nor does she understand bounty hunters and Tate comes back from the hunt to find his old lady has moved on.

Life throws curveball after curveball at Laurie and Tate. As secrets are revealed, women are brutally murdered, and Lauren tries to find her inner biker babe.

My Review:

Ohh Yea, Ohh Yea!! Another one Bites the Dust...
I am officially an honorary member of the Tate Panty Check Club..
Boy was I ready to trade in "My Old Man" for a Super Deluxe "Tate" model when I was done =0)
I SOOO now get why Tate was all I heard about from most of the Girls!
he is HAWT, he is Alpha and he is THE SHIT "YUMMMMMM"

I have to get my fix of KA Alpha Males in between reads!!!

Willing Captive ~ Belle Aurora

Willing CaptiveWilling Captive by Belle Aurora
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)

Delilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years.
Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom.
Or so she thinks.

Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job.
There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily.

Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met.
Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right?

Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity.
What lengths would she go through to keep them?

**This is a stand alone novel and is unrelated to Friend-Zoned**

My Review:
4 Mothertrucking stars!!!!!!
Not what I was expecting.. But ooohhhh what a pleasant surprise. Lily was just so witty and was such a smart ass.. She was so honest and loved hard!
And Nox was so protective but not over the top he was such an ass but you can't help but love him.
There were laughs galore and the storyline was fun, action packed with a hint of mystery.
This was the first I've read by Belle Aurora and definitely won't be my last!
