My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Master’s Rise Book One (Phoenix Series) by L. Ann Marie is the first book I have read by this author and I loved it. It pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you hooked with the story line so you can’t put it down. The characters are relatable and written great, you can’t help but fall in love with some and feel their emotions. Cort and Seren are the two main characters who both have an attraction to each other. What will come from their attraction as sparks fly? Can Cort forgive his Brothers and learn to trust again? This story has action, romance, suspense and drama, the story line is amazing and I cant wait to see what comes next.

Master’s Rise is the first book in L. Ann Marie’s Phoenix MC Series. This is my first read by this writer and as I absolutely love MC stories then I decided why the heck not AND I was not disappointed, not a bit!
It is supposedly a new series but I had a feeling that I was missing something and when doing some looking up I could see that I should go and read her other MC series to get the full impact of this one (though kudos to the writer in regard of trying to give us as much of background as possible but one does not want to become a drag…)
Master’s rise gives us the story of Cort who has left his old MC with some of his brothers following him so they will start up a new MC in a town that needs some fixing up, and of Seren who has always been treated slightly different because of how she looks … throw these two together with Seren’s hilarious and crazy friends and Cort’s MC brothers in a town that offers them loads of challenges and you get a story that doesn’t leave you indifferent! I am looking forward to the next one in the series and I see many good stories in our future!

This is a new to me author and with an MC book i just had to dive right in. This took a bit to get used to the writing style and flow but after a bit it clicked and I was flipping through the pages.
Ive not really read any books where we get to see the building and start of a club so it was interesting to get a front row seat to all that goes into it.
I can’t say I’ve laughed so much in an MC book before so that was a welcome change and I fell for these characters fast. I did feel like I was missing something or a big chunk of time and that bothered me as its a start of a series but no real big backstory type.
I am looking forward to more in this series as I am now invested!

This is the first book in the Phoenix Series and it was a great book.

Cort is president of a MC thats been set up made of new and old members of people from different groups.

They all live by Brotherhood which meand they protect their own and their town. This become even more important when Cort meets Seren.

Seren runs the local hardware store and pizza place but after run ins with the locals Cort steps in to help her and sets up brother protection for her. There is an immediate attraction between them but Cort is cautious as he has been hurt before.

However Seren is different, she knows about the Brotherhood and understands their ways. However she isnt a woman to just sit back and do as she is told which means Cort has a challenge on his hands.

This is about the build of a club, brotherhood and trust. I liked learning about what it takes to get a club off the ground and running. Most times I read about an established club..so that was different.

Reading this was a struggle for me. There is stilted conversation and many times I had to reread a section over to try to make sense of it That ended up frustrating me and I would just move on.

Open your book to Romance, MC, and learning to trust.

New Mexico is the stage, and L. Ann Marie is the author. Her description of her characters were spot on. I could see them as clear as day. Her writing of this book makes it a fast-paced page turner. I love stories about MotorCycle Clubs. Phoenix is another trustworthy group of men and women. Cort and Serena are the main characters. Such a great couple. But finding a band of trust worthy brothers, makes this story worth the read. L. Ann Marie is a new author for me. She did not disappoint! I am looking forward to book 2.

Masters’ Rise is the first book in the Phoenix series by L Ann Marie. It was the first time that I had read any of this author’s work and I have to admit that it took me a little bit to get into this book but once I did, I really did enjoy it. I have read other MC books but found this one very different for the others that I have read. This book was very descriptive and gave much more insight into the day to day running of an MC. I also found this book to be more violent than others that I have previously read.
I really loved the main characters of Cort and Seren. The attraction and chemistry between them was instant and grew and grew as the story progressed. I loved how Seren took absolutely no nonsense from Cort, even though he was the president of a MC. For a man who was used to having everyone at his beck and call, it was a breath of fresh air to have someone say no to him and answer him back.
I really enjoyed the plot and storyline although at the beginning I was confused as to who were the good guys and who were the bad guys as there are so many secondary characters in the book. It did take me a while to understand who was who. I do hope we get to see a lot more from some of the other characters as the series progresses.

This is my first book by this author and in doing research I see that there are many books I need to go back and read. I love MC books, they are among my favorites.

I did have trouble at first wondering if I was missing a lot of this story, which is why I went looking through her books. She did a good job of updating things but I still felt like I was missing something. Once I got towards the middle I found myself totally invested in all of these people. I loved Cort and I truly felt for him after reading and understanding his story, and his brothers totally won my heart with trying so hard to make things right for him. I loved Seren in this story as well, she was totally awesome and their story was written different then Im used to and I really liked it even if I can’t explain it LOL

I definitely did not like the town, it was a complete mess but what Cort and his brothers were trying to do to fix it was awesome and I must also mention this is one of the first books I’ve ever read that I actually felt present at the start of an MC and that was cool! I can’t wait to move forward with this series and see who we get to know more about. I loved so many of the secondary characters that I hope this series covers them all.

Took me a bit to fall into the writing style of this author…I had to go back and read sometimes two or three times to figure out the change of scenes or what was happening, but once I got a grip on it I was fine so hopefully the next book I won’t have any issues at all.

Really enjoyed it and can not wait for more.

Master’s Rise was a good story. I’m not personally a huge fan of motorcycle stories, it’s not my favorite type of genre, but I really did enjoy this story! It was very well written, with a clear story line and plot. I had a little trouble keeping all the characters together though. Language and some steamy scenes makes this an 18+ book in my opinion. I’m definitely interested in reading more books from L. Ann Marie!

Master’s Rise Book One (Phoenix Series) by L. Ann Marie is a new author is to me and I enjoyed this story. I have to say it took me a little bit to settle into the way the author writes but once it started to flow for me it really became a good read. The characters just make you fall in love with them and they made me laugh out loud so many times. There is plenty of action and drama, fun and comradery and a brotherhood second to none. I read the story in one sitting and had to stay up till 2am just because I had to know how it ended.

Seren has always been treated differently because of the way she looks but she is so much more that her prettiness and blond hair. She and her friends are hilarious and crazy to boot. They are strong and sassy and don’t apologise for who they are.

Cort is starting again having left his old MC, but he quickly realises that some of his brothers follow him and they start their own MC from the ground up. There is plenty of trouble in their new town to keep them busy and the club grows quickly. These men crack me up they do what has to be done and have each other’s backs at all times but they are just funny with their antics. Whilst all this is going on he cannot keep away from the blonde beauty.

I will have to go back and read through the impressive list of books that L. Ann Marie has written and I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
