Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Karyn Taylor

Being Lost (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #1)Being Lost by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Being Lost is the first book in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series by Manda Mellett. I’m a huge fan of Manda Mellett having read several of the Satan’s Devils Arizona books and all of the Colorado ones. I have to say that I was a bit apprehensive of a new series as I’d grown to love the guys in the other series’ and was worried about getting another new bunch to get to know. This was just me being stupid as I should have known that Manda Mellett would not let me down.
I loved that she used links to the other 2 chapters from the very beginning to make you feel right at home straight away without feeling overwhelmed with all the new characters.
Being 1 short of the Big dreaded 5 0, I loved that Being Lost’s story centred around a couple in their early 50’s. It’s such a welcome change to read about an older couple who don’t have perfect bodies. They have a few extra pounds here and there and a few grey hairs and wrinkles but still have a very sexy storyline. There is hope for me yet!! Lol.
As with other Satan’s Devil’s book there is a great storyline running along with the romance of the main couple involved. The storyline in this book was thrilling and dangerous and a carefully worked out plot. I’m in awe of how Manda Mellett writes these amazing stories. I just can’t get enough of the Satan’s Devils.

Being Lost is the first book in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series. While you can read this as a standalone, you will have a better reading experience if you’ve read Ink’s Devil (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #5) to get some foundation for the characters in Being Lost.

I have read many of the Satan’s Devils books and have really enjoyed the author’s ability to weave real life issues into her writing in a way that engages your emotions. That being said, this book did not grab me as much as the others. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great read, it just didn’t have the same intensity as the other books.

I did enjoy the fact that the characters in this book are older and that the author addresses finding love in later adulthood. That’s something you don’t see too often. I’m also enjoying the bit of mystery that has started around who is shadowing the MC.

Overall, great read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the 1st book in the Satan Devils MC San Diego Chapter. It is a great book and introduces you to some new characters as well as some old ones from the previous books.

In the story we follow Patsy and Lost.
Patsy is the Mother to Dan (Connor) And Beth who is MC member Ink’s old lady.
After the fall out between Dan and the drugs and the connection to Alder the drug kingpin, Dan goes to the police and tells them everything which then means for his safety he needs to disappear.

So Dan and his mother Patsy are moved to San Diego where they fall under the protection of Lost and the San Diego Mc. With Alder still after Dan they try to stay under the radar until it turns out that Alder isn’t after Dan at all but his mother.

Lost is the prez of the MC and he has a hard and heartbreaking past. Suffering a lack of confidence at his ability to guide the club in the right direction he wonders if he has bitten off more than he can chew when he offers his help to protect Patsy from Alder.
However, he cant stop his growing feelings for her and despite both their pasts he wants something to work between them. Can Patsy become his old lady or will he be unable to protect her so she had to run again.

It was an amazing story that keeps you gripped as you cheer for them to succeed but also your heart stops at some of the situations that arise.

So I was looking forward to reading this. I loved Darts book where some of these characters were introduced. I did struggle a bit with this one. It seemed like a lot of feelings and not much happened til later in the book. I enjoyed learning a bit more about Lost and following the story of a couple who are over fifty. That set a different tone to the story. Patsy was in a bit of a situation but really she didn’t do much for the story. Maybe that’s part of the older characters, I’m not sure. We have met Patsy and Dan previously from Ink’s book. It was fun to see Ink and Beth again. I did like the idea of seeing what happened after their story.

It just seemed most of this story was talked about. There isn’t a lot of action. Maybe it’s the vibe of this club. They just recently had trouble so they are on the down low. Action did pick up near the end. But with Lost’s self doubt even the plans were rehashed numerous times.

This isn’t a favorite and I am saddened by that fact. I wanted to love it so bad. But I just got bored at times.

TWO HEARTS UNSPOKEN TARGETS (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 11) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Jana Teppih

TWO HEARTS UNSPOKEN TARGETS (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 11)TWO HEARTS UNSPOKEN TARGETS by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two Hearts Unspoken Targets (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 11) by Tamara Ferguson is the extended version of the original Two Hearts Unspoken that I read three years ago. It was one of the first books by the writer and was one of the reasons why I fell in love with everything that Tamara writes so I was more than happy to pick up this extended version! You could read all her books as standalones but I warmly insist that you give yourself a go ahead to read them in order as you will meet certain people prior ‘their’ books and there are different back stories and, I promise, you will not regret it a bit!
I remember originally thinking that the story was way too short so I was delighted to revisit with Elizabeth (Beth) and Zach and Kyle. It was such a heart warming story of two people who for the longest time have thought that they will never find someone right for them. Add to it war wounds and a divorce and an autistic child and … you get the picture!
It is an insta love story and let’s be honest, even though we say we do not believe in love at first sight, deep down we keep our fingers crossed and hope that it is possible. I think it feels real in this story and throughout the story I found myself rooting for Zach and Beth. This story is actually much more than just a simple romance, it touches upon important issues that many people struggle with and that many of us do not have a lot of experience with so I am grateful to the writer bringing the world of wounded vets and the lives of autistic children and their parents closer to us! I have to say now after having read every single one of her Crystal Rock and Wounded Warrior stories that her stories are emotional but at no point do we feel pity for them as they are survivors and an example of how to get back to living to every one of us!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two Hearts Unspoken Targets is the 11th book in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series. Each book is written as a standalone. I have now read several of the books in this series and the more I read, the more I grow to love this series and Tamara Ferguson’s writing.
This series is set around the wounded warrior training camp where those wounded on the military come to train and get back to fitness. I love that the author has heroes and heroines who are disfigured, amputees and have other debilitating conditions due to their life of service. I love that she shows how these people suffer from so much self doubt about their ability to be loved and writes the most beautiful heart wrenching Happily ever afters for them.
This book is not different in that it contains Zach Logan who has horrific scarring after being in a plane which had burst into flames. At the wounded warrior camp he meets Beth whose 20 year old son Kyle is autistic and will be working with Zach. Beth and Zach’s story is beautiful. Zach is worried about how any woman could possible look at his scarred body and Beth is too busy looking after Kyle to consider a relationship for herself.
I loved these characters and love to see how Tamara Ferguson creates an amazing storyline to bring them to life. I was hooked from the very beginning of this book and did not want to put it down.

Being Lost (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #1)Being Lost by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book should only be read by the over 18’s, there are lots of adult themed and violent scenes throughout, which are unsuitable for those any younger.

This book is a branch of the Satan’s Devil’s MC series and is based in the San Diego chapter, it revolves around the Mc’s Prez Lost and his inner turmoil as the President of the Club and as his name suggests, he feels lost since his club was torn apart and nearly broken, just like him.

The book starts as Lost is struggling with a nightmare of his club’s past troubles and this feeds his perceived inability to lead and lack of self confidence. He is reliving the events that nearly tore the club apart and is fighting against his subconscious in the form that it takes. He wakes up in a sweat, wrapped in the sheets and realising that sleep will now evade him, he gets up and gets ready to face the day. This doesn’t get any better as it is reported in the club “Church” meeting that a past member has reared his head where he shouldn’t have, but it is pushed to the back of his mind as the meeting progresses and other reports are given, including one that reported that the drive-by’s past the house that they have been asked to look out for by another chapter, haven’t noticed that externally, nothing has changed.

Next we meet Patsy, her son is on the run and she has made the tough decision to follow him and leave her daughter behind when he had to go into hiding from a past that, if they are found, would probably mean the end of them. They are trying to settle into their new lives in San Diego and as she is left alone in the house again, while her son is at work, she relives the worst event in her life and the reason why they had to leave their home. As she is looking at her business and debating with herself how to move forward with it, she hears the passing motorcycle again and wonders who they are and why they are passing by there again.

We next see Lost in Church again, when their technology expert reports that he has had a message he cannot track at all, say that “They know where they are” and they debate what they are going to do. The result of this debate is that Lost will go to discreetly visit the house and let those living there hear the bad news. This is where Lost and Patsy meet for the first time and not their last. As Lost and Patsy discuss the situation, the danger is made apparent to her and her son and this is where the real story begins.

As their paths become fraught with danger, passion, mystery and rebellion, they discover where their paths will take them and the costs that will hinder them along the way. For a passionate tale of new beginnings, overcoming past traumas and forging of loyalties, both new and old, prepare yourselves to become invested in another world.

5 ++++ Stars

I could not wait to get my hands on this one. We met and visited the San Diego Charter back in Darts Book, as well as learning the story of Dart, the new sitting VP and his adorable wife, Alex. I believe this is also where we first met Lost. Then enter Patsy, who we met in Inks book. I actually didn’t think I’d ever see Patsy and her son “Dan” again. Surprise surprise!!

I’m not even sure where to start with this review except to say I Loved It!! I fell in love with Lost just by his photo on the cover, and learning more about him and his insecurities just strengthened that. Add in that him and Patsy are not spring chickens and I was completely done for. Their story totally touched my heart and will absolutely be one of my favorites of all..Thats not easy to say because they are all special but this one just a bit more to me.

I love that I’m able to be a part of watching a new chapter begin their start within this series. I felt the same way when we met the Colorado chapter and after meeting all of their members I’m chomping at the bit to get my hands on the next one. This author has ruined me for any other MC series. MC’s are one of my favorite genres and Manda checks every single box on my list of what I love most. So many books yet every one of them is different while still holding on to that main important aspect of it all being a family. I’m so looking forward to rereading this whole entire Satan’s Devils world someday.

Super curious about what was going on in the last few pages of this book, and can not wait to see what that is all about. Some answers were never received in this story leaving things wide open for Lost and Patsy. Also no hidden clues about who the next book is about, or if there was I totally missed them.

LOVED IT!!! I NEED MORE!!
