ARC Review: Owning Violet by Monica Murphy


Title: Owning Violet
Author: Monica Murphy
Series: The Fowler Sisters #1
Genres: NA, Contemporary, Romance
Publication: December 2nd 2014 by Bantam

Summary (Goodreads):
New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy begins a sexy new contemporary romance series—perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—that introduces three sisters born to wealth, raised to succeed, ready to love, destined to make waves.

I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.

Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.

One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

My everything.



My Thoughts:

**An eARC was provided by publisher in exchange of an honest review**

I've never read a book by Monica Murphy. I own several of hers, but I've never had the chance to read one of them, so when I did I was really excited because I've heard so much about her and how steamy her writing is. Reading and hearing are two different things, and no gushing ever compares to the real thing.

This book is about Violet, a girl from a famous family and who's been in the spotlight her whole life, putting a lot of pressure on her to be as perfect as everyone expects her to be and as her father wants her to be. She's been acting the part for a long time, letting people walk all over while she smiles politely, until she is suddenly woken up and thrust into the arms of Ryder, a man who sets her blood on fire and who is more than he seems.

I loved this book. I could not put it down. Owning Violet captivated me from the moment I started it until the last chapter. I couldn't stop reading and I wanted more. Violet is a girl I felt for. She's strong, but she's trying so very hard to bury her past and to be what she thinks she should be. A perfect daughter and wife, and to make the people around her happy, even if it's at her own expense. I totally loved her, and her struggles felt like my own.

And then there is Ryder, a man who has done a lot to get where he is, struggled and fought with everything he had to escape his former life, even if it's at the expense of others. He's not nice, and he knows it. For the first half of the book, I hated his guts. He's so very different from Violet, and he'd be more likely to step on her than pick her up, and I hated him for it, even knowing where he came from and what he wanted, but I really can't lie and say I didn't love him just a tiny bit, because I totally did. He's hot, he's sexy and absolutely yummy. Can't deny that fact. His alpha-male persona almost set the book on fire, it was that intense. And then came the second half of the book, and then I could feel his struggles as he fought his feelings and the things he needed to do and that teeny bit of love I had for him evolved until I was just as captivated with him as Violet was.

When I finished this book, I wanted more. I could not get enough of Violet and Ryder, or even the writing. It was so action-filled with things happening all the time, from the schemes to the drama and gossip. It was non-stop entertainment and mystery and I, very much like the characters in this book, was suspicion of pretty much everyone as they fought to get to the top, trying to figure out who was going to stab who in the back.

My only problem with this book was the ending, or rather how rushed it seemed. I didn't feel like the real problem was dealt with or taken care of. There was the whole thing with Alan that just felt unnecessary because nothing happened there and then the Pilar thing that wasn't really over. Now I understand that this series is going to follow the Fowler sisters, and that Pilar probably will make an appearance there as well, but in this book, it was pretty much over-looked in the end and made little sense.

Steamy and drama filled, Owning Violet is the perfect read for everyone who wants a hot book that will keep you on your toes and make your heart beat fast. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!

Synopsis:
Hitchhiking is a bad idea but Caden is desperate.

When she accepts a ride from the first car to come by she meets Gabriel. He’s her age, hot, and the closest thing she has to a savior. Problem is, he is a total jerk. With nowhere to go, Caden convinces Gabriel to let her stay with him for one night. He reluctantly lends a couch.

That night Caden wakes up to strange noises. Concerned, she rushes into Gabriel’s room, already anticipating his bad temper.

For Gabriel, Caden is an annoying mistake. One night turns into many, and despite all his anger towards her, she stays. She even seems to accept him and his flaws, but he still doesn’t trust her—is she staying for him, or has she already discovered more than he’s willing to share?

ARC Review: Rev by J.C. Emery

Title: Rev
Author: J.C. Emery
Series: Bayonet Scars #3
Genres: NA, Contemporary, Romance
Publication: May 19th 2014 by Left Break Press

Summary (Goodreads):
Everyone belongs somewhere. Even the misfits.

With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club’s Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities– especially now. He’s already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.

For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown’s resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.
When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso’s radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club’s help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.

Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.





My Thoughts:

**An eARC was provided in exchange of an honest review.**

When I went into this book, I wasn't very excited and I already was expecting not to like it since my experience with the previous books in the series wasn't all that. While I liked them, I didn't love them and wouldn't consider a reread, so the when I started Rev, I was surprised by it.

This book follows Grady, whom we've met in the previous books, and Holly, a new character who starts working at the local school. She doesn't want to get involved with the club in any way, she already has a history of bad decisions and getting involved with a member of an outlaw motorcycle club, who is a father of one of her students, is sure to qualify as one, but she's in danger now, and the only people to keep her safe are the ones she's trying to avoid.

First thing I noticed about this book, was the pace of POV change. It didn't take long for us to get inside the other characters head as it was in the previous books where we had to wait until half of the book for the POV to change. I really liked this, and it made me get into the story more.

The other thing I loved was Grady. While we met him briefly in the previous books, he came off as bitter and angry at the whole world and not someone whose story would be interesting. I figured he'd be as big of a jerk as the other male lead characters before him, and he was, for the first few chapters. He was mean and a jerk, but it was because he protecting his daughter and suffering from the loss of his best friend. It didn't get long for his protective side to come through and I loved the fact that he didn't try to push Holly away because he didn't want to put her in danger or something along these lines. Grady knew what he wanted and he went for it, which made him my favorite male lead in this series. I love it when a guy knows what he wants and isn't shy about getting it. Holly was the perfect female for Grady too. She didn't put up with him when he was behaving like an a-hole, in fact she gave back as much as she got, and it made the book all the more interesting and entertaining.

My main issue with Rev, or this who series really, is the big problem with the mafia. I mean, we're on the third book, and very little has happened regarding the whole thing. While this book didn't lack in the action department, the main problem or conflict is very widely stretched and is just losing the whole dangerous thing about it. The mafia was mentioned briefly here and there and made a few appearances but it wasn’t enough and didn't feel real. The mafia is supposed to be this big thing with dangerous killers who don't take prisoners, yet in the whole of three books, they did very little and just didn't live up to what they were painted to be.
ma
Nonetheless, this book is one I enjoyed very much, and if you liked the previous books in this series, then you will love Rev.

Title: Thrash
Author: J.C. Emery
Series: Bayonet Scars #2
Genres: NA, Romance, Contemporary
Publication: January 9th 2014 by Left Break Press

Summary (Goodreads):
Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.

As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn’t have, and then almost lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.

The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

Love is never more precious than when it’s new. 




My Thoughts:

**An eARC was provided in exchange of an honest review.**

I'm new to books about bikers. I've read a few, but not enough that I've immersed myself in the world of MCs or know much about it, and while I read Ride, the first book in this series just a few days before this one, Thrash still felt like a new world to me since we didn't get much MC in the previous book.

Thrash takes place in the same time frame as Ride, only the main characters are Nic and Duke. She is a Lost Girl, has been for some time, but she'd made it her mission to never get together with Duke or give herself to him. She'd always had a crush on him, and seeing him with someone else after she'd slept with him would totally break her, so she stays away, until one night she can't anymore. Nic is expecting Duke to forget her like he'd done with so many other girls, but for some reason he is sticking around and he isn't letting her go.

As I mentioned before, I'm kind of newbie when it comes to the biker world and how it's run, and I struggled very much with understanding how things worked with Old Ladies, Lost Girls and the bikers themselves. It frustrated me to no end the way women, Lost Girls and Old Ladies alike, were expected to just pretty much bow down to their men, especially if they where in the presence of another brother because it was considered disrespectful if an Old Lady argued with her man and he would have to punish her or something along those lines. I could understand it and maybe tolerate it when it came to the Lost Girls since they weren't considered part of the supposed family and their only use was a quick relief.

Now I usually like alpha-males, most times I love them, but the males in this book felt more like jerks and meanies who felt like their manliness was threatened if a woman argued back. Totally did not get it and it ruined some of my enjoyment of this book since it was a very big part of Thrash.

Nic is a a strong girl, and I really liked her for saying no and refusing to accept the way she was treated. Totally got her many brownie points. She had a lot going on in her life, taking care of her younger, rebellious brother and balancing her work life to get food on the table, yet she kept fighting and didn't whine or cry or give up. It did help that Duke was there for her. Even though it was a few years late, he still tried to help her and while he was a jerk in many ways, I liked that he at least knew what he wanted and was going for it full force.

My other issue was the time frame. Since Thrash it took place around the same time as Ride, I felt like I was reading the same book just from different POVs, and while that allowed to a new and different look at what was happening inside of the club and with the brothers, it still bored some when I knew what was going to happen and how things ended.

I think I would have liked the book much more if it had started after Ride and built from there instead of following pretty much the same events.

ARC Review: Ride by J.C. Emery


Title: Ride
Author: J.C. Emery
Series: Bayonet Scars #1
Genres: NA, Contemporary, Romance
Publication: 25th October 2013 by Left Break Press

Summary (Goodreads):
Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.





My Thoughts:

**An eARC was provided in exchange of an honest review.**

I'm one of those people who have a hate-love relationship with forbidden love stories. Sometimes I like them, other times they bore me. When I read the blurb to this book however, I was immediately intrigued and was already in like with the forbidden love story Ride had to tell. I mean, when you put a biker and a mafia princess together, things are bound to be hot and sexy with a lot of action.

Alex is born in family where what men say goes. It's their way of life and she's raised up to be the perfect wife, knowing she will be married off to the guy her dad approves of, or rather, the highest bidder, and to keep a smile on her face and say yes. It's her life, and where her future is headed, until she unintentionally, or was it intentionally?, finds herself in mess that could result in her dead. Her only protection? A family member she never knew existed and a group of men in leather and on bikes. She never expected to like it with them, or to find someone she wants to spend the rest of her life with. But she isn't safe yet, the people she trusts are keeping secrets from her and the man she wants, Ryan, is off limits to her.

When I went into this book, I was expecting an action filled and steamy book with two headstrong characters who don't take no for an answer. I thought it would be a book If couldn't put down because I like strong characters who do things their own way. This wasn't the case for Alex and Ryan. Or the book. Things started very slowly and the time they spent on the road home was longer than the time they spent home. That resulted in moments where I was bored and my only entertainment was Ryan.

Ryan is a guy who is a jerk. A class A a-hole that gave me whiplashes. One second, he was sweet and funny, and then the next he was behaving in such a way I wanted to smash his head and scream at him. Most of the time, he behaved like he hated Alex and it made me want to hit her in return because she kept chasing after him and I have no idea why. She is this polite, nice and kind of submissive girl that cries a lot, and he is the complete opposite. He treated her so bad, and there was this one scene where I just washed my hands clean of him and her because what he did was just not something anybody should ever forgive or forget.

They got attached to each other pretty quickly. Like, from the second they met, and Alex couldn't stop thinking about Ryan. She wanted him, she couldn't live without him and she was very hung up over him. Same went for him, even though he didn't behave like it, he actually wanted her, yet when I read his POV I hated him even more. Class A a-hole thoroughly, it wasn't just pretend because he couldn't have her, oh no, it's just how he is. Whiplash, I tell you. That resulted in very little contact between them, which also resulted in very little steamy and sexual tension.

Yet I still liked this book. I loved the idea, and the secret the bikers where hiding I had no idea was coming and hit me full force. I like surprises, so that gave the book a bunch of points. It isn't every day I read a book with both the Italian mafia and an MC clash together, two totally different mind sets and worlds, which we could see reflected in the relationship between Ryan and Alex. Strangely and weirdly enough, it was Ryan's jerk factor that made me want to finish this book more than anything. I wanted to see what else he would do, if Alex was going to man up, or rather woman up, and put a stop to him walking all over her and to see if he could make up for what he did and the way he behaved throughout the whole book.

And because I'm me, and I'm weird, I actually enjoyed Ryan's character, because I'd much rather have a hero that is not a hero and that I would very much love to shoot than a love sick one in a book with lots of sappiness cheesy stuff.

Book Review: The Rental by Rebecca Berto


Title: The Rental
Author: Rebecca Berto
Series: The Rental #1
Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication: 22nd September 2014 indie

Summary (Goodreads):
At first, Rick Delaney watched Vee Wyland with the hungry eyes of a fox as if she were a rabbit … his rabbit. But one day, he slunk away without notice.
Months away from graduating high school, Vee’s life is on the verge of crumbling. At home, dire finances and long hours test her family. Her boyfriend hardly pays attention to her. And she can’t shake her feelings for his older brother, Rick.
Then, all in one night, tragedy tears her teetering life into shreds.
When Rick and Vee reunite, the sparks fly. However, she unwittingly signs away a future for both of them. In his world, a place called The Rental, she becomes Victoria and Rick becomes Rhett. One part of her watches with fascination, while the other unfurls and embraces her sexual awakening. It began as a game, but the consequences are real.
Following their heart’s desire is forbidden, but walking away could strip their hope for a future.
The Rental is an erotic romance that explores how sex isn’t purely physical; sometimes, it’s a gateway to your soul. 






My Thoughts: 

**An eCopy was provided in exchange of an honest review.**

When I read the blurb for this book, I was immediately hooked and just had to read it, so I was very happy when I got a copy of this book. The whole going away and then reuniting thing is something that I love in books, add the fact that the guy coming back is the boyfriends older brother, and I was totally sold.

Rick and Vee always had something for each other. Stolen glances here and there, whispered touches and feelings neither of them could deny yet couldn't act upon because of the age difference between them, and then Rick leaves suddenly, and his younger brother, Justin takes his place. When Rick returns, tragedy strikes Vee’s family, and to support them, she has to join an escort service where Rick works as a body guard. Any relationship between them is forbidden, but soon, they succumb to their feelings, putting more than their futures in danger.

I was really excited to read this book. I couldn't wait to delve into it, and as soon as I had the chance, I started it. My excitement was wavering from the first few chapters though, and disappointment was taking its place. The alternating between the past and the present was confusing me, and it felt awkward at times. The text and writing wasn't flowing and I felt like snippets and sentences where missing in several places. This continued on throughout the whole book. It really annoyed me, and I had to take pauses between reading because I couldn't find the will to continue. The whole thing with Justin, her father and even The Rental, felt loose and didn't sit tight or well together.

My other issue was Vee. I couldn’t really relate to her and most of the time, I was frustrated by her actions. While I understand that she had just graduated and wanted a life like any other teenager, to go to college, to party and have fun instead of working several jobs to help her family, I still felt that some of her actions were just childish and selfish. Especially when it came to Rick. I really loved the guy, he's sweet and bossy and submits only to Vee, which is why I wanted to hit her most of the time she was around him. The guy wanted the best for her, and she was only thinking of herself. There was one scene where he was forced to watch her work on another guy and she felt empowered, but when a women touched him, she was burning with jealousy and cried. It drove me crazy that it turned her on when he watched others touch her, but as soon as a girl touched him, she'd turn into a heartbroken girlfriend.

Though I have to admit, the sex scenes where some of the hottest I've ever read. They were scorching hot,as in somewhere between I-need-a-fan hot and oh-my-gosh-I'm-melting hot. It was one of the few things I loved about this book and that made me want to continue reading.

I smile, amazed by the roses, by his faith in me and by the fact that he’s absolutely fantastic. 

“Thanks.” 

Noah gently pulls one of the curls. “Damn, baby, don’t look at me like that.” 

“Like what?” 

“Like you want me to kiss you.” 

But I do want him to kiss me. Instead, I shove at his wall of a chest, and he winks at me before he grabs the keys to the car and walks out the door. The air conditioner kicks off, and I lean against the headboard, staring at Noah’s roses on the bedside table. I pick one up, inhale the sweet scent and wonder, when it comes to it, why I’m waiting.
