Amy’s Santa (Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Jana Teppih

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amy’s Santa is the first book in Manda Mellett’s Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation!!! Finally!!! We have been waiting for it for such a long time AND Manda did not disappoint! There were so many ‘children’ she could have started with and I am so happy she started with Amy and Drew aka Wizard. We met Amy in Heart’s story (she is his daughter) and Drew in Mouse’s story (his sister Mariana is Mouse’s Old Lady). I assume you could read this story as a standalone but I strongly recommend to read the other series before as you will get so much more out of it as you will know the background to the other characters that play a big role in the story!
Manda has given us a story that fits well with her MC series and I am looking forward to the rest of the second generation stories. You would think that she’d reach the bottom of the well when it comes to her Satan’s Devils but heck no, her imagination keeps on giving and what is there not to love about brotherhood and loyalty and action and love and steam and … Thank you dear writer and please keep them coming!

Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) by Via Mari

5 +++++++ Stars

I’m in shock…seriously…how can an author (an absolute favorite author) keep starting new series that feel like the other series involving the same people as well as some new ones and make them feel completely fresh each time? I’m going to be completely honest and say that of course there was no doubt I was going to read this because I mean..it’s Via Mari, but I was so worried that it would feel overdone maybe? Like maybe a brand new series would have been better? I feel completely stupid after finishing this…I almost feel like I should send an apology to this author for not trusting her.

Katarina and Chase will forever be one of my favorite book couples, I already knew that but this story just reinforced that… I can’t emphasize enough how much I loved being back with them. They have my heart and I loved how her strength shined through in this story and that she hasn’t lost that while in the complete and utter fog of protection and love given to her by Chase…sigh….

I loved the two stories going on in this book..two stories that actually on one hand were one yet on the other completely separate. This is where Gio and Serena come in…there was so much to their story…Serena fearing Gio’s Larussio family for good reason doing everything possible to protect Nonna and holding on to secrets from even her own family, but when Gio decides he will have Serena as his own vowing to protect and care for her can Serena trust this man that she has feared and suffered because of for so many years?

Someone tried to kill Carlos, the head of the Larussio family who happens to be Katarina’s father and Gio’s favorite uncle..these two finally meet as Carlos has made it very clear that all the plans he had and has for the family are to be carried out by these two cousins who have never met. Katarina meets a family that is hers by blood, while Gio meets a cousin he has never been sure even shares his blood..how this all plays out makes for an amazing story that had me reading non stop and my head throbbing because I couldn’t read fast enough, then just looking down shaking my head because it was over….when I say i didn’t want this book to end I’m saying it with complete sincerity..so many times I felt like I had transported in to this world this author created and I wasn’t ready for it to be over. This could be at this point my favorite in them all, take my advice and pick up all of the books that are involved in these series…definitely worth every penny, and I can’t wait to reread everything!

Now I wait for Rise…so many unanswered questions I need answers to, a looming drs appt, who is behind it all, what happened to the brothers, Antonio?, how is Nonna, Sheldon and Alexis? (fell in love with these two) and does Gaby get her bigger kitchen???

~~ sigh ~~

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett a five-star read that you need to read. This is the first novel in the Satan’s Devils MC second generation series, and this is a great story about Amy, and she will surprise you as you read her story. This has some great characters as always, we get to catch up with some that we have met previously if you read the first series (but if you haven’t read that series it doesn’t matter as they are well done so you don’t miss anything), and will get to see Amy and Drew face fate, Amy has a terrific story, not a nice one, but one that will show her how strong she truly is. Xander played a great role in this story as well, and it was a nice twist with him added. Overall a great start to the next generation of character stories.

5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. I was hoping we got Cleo’s book next after book 1, and this didn’t disappoint.
Cleo’s got a stalker and I love how we’re thrown in only knowing how much she wants to divulge as we go. And Mason, oh what a guy!
These two were great to read and I enjoyed seeing those from book 1 around in this one and I so cannot wait to see where this series goes. Another amazing read!

Hidden Obsession (An Alliance Agency Novel Book 2) by Maddie Wade & India Kells. I just can’t get enough of these authors and this series. Like seriously the entire book kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn’t want it to end. From start to finish I was completely hooked and couldn’t put it down. These authors know how to hook readers and make sure the story is one that won’t soon be forgotten. The character building is so strong I felt like I knew these people in real life. The storyline is just as strong and comes alive right before your eyes. Cleo and Mason are probably my favorite characters this year and I’ve read plenty of books but these two just captured my soul somehow. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I love a book I can’t figure out right off and this story definitely delivers. Five stars all the way and highly recommend!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The first book in the series introduced Cleo and Mason. It was easy to tell that they had chemistry and were fighting it, but it was merely a hint of where their story starts. Hidden Obsession has action, romance, mystery, trauma, and suspense to take you through a plethora of feelings. It’s clear these two are right for each other even when they’re being stubborn or get lost in negative self-talk. The story consists of 3 or 4 sub-plots that unfold to make this story unique as they work together to bring out the emotions and build the story to its happy ending. This story has enough real in it to be able to visualize the scenes and feel the tension. This book is an outstanding addition to the series.

Amy’s Santa (Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Karyn Taylor

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amy’s Santa is the first book in the 2nd Generation of Satan’s Devils MC. I first started reading Manda Mellett’s amazing MC books near the end of the first generation series and have read all of the Colorado Chapter books so far and I think these books just keep getting better and better. Each book is new and innovative and the stories are fresh and not repetitive at all as can happen when you write about the same group of people.
I loved that in this 2nd generation, all the old (in more ways than one) characters are still around creating mischief even though their bodies aren’t quite what they used to be.
In this book we get the story of Amy, daughter of heart, and Drew (now Wizard) who has taken over from Drummer as Prez. This is certainly no hearts and flowers romance novel. The subject matter is quite dark in parts and there are also scenes which are quite gruesome. As ever with Manda Mellett’s MC books there are some hot and steamy sexy times going on too.
One thing I loved was how the author got the name for this book. That certainly was a scene to remember.
Having finished this book, I can’t wait to get my next fix of the Satan’s Devils MC.

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story has some of our favorite characters from Mellet’s other series visiting for the “event of the century!” The beginning of Amy’s Santa shows us the love that Amy and Drew have for each other, regardless of their age difference. Only time will tell if that difference keeps them apart.

This story has motorcycle clubs, love, violence, family and BDSM situations. The story is easy to read and action packed. Mellet does a good job with the characters and their reactions to the situations that happen.

No need to read the other series first but just know, after reading any of Mellet’s MC’s books will get you wanting to read all of them!

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Amy grew up around the Satan’s Devils MC and has been away from them for many years now. Christmas seems to be the only time Amy will visit but this year she is dreading the return. She is afraid of what people may or may not pick up on, as well as what they might think of the company she is bringing. But she knows she has to do this, because not showing up would be far worse in their protective eyes. As the story evolves you see Amy’s true colors start to shine through as she starts to gain back the confidence she tragically lost.

I thought this book would end up being just another MC book, but I was kept on my toes as the story went through some crazy plot twists and turns. The common theme of family and brotherhood was definitely present through this whole story which was heartwarming to read. However, readers should take heed to the author’s note about the story being dark in places and may contain triggers. While this could be a testament to the author’s descriptive abilities, there was one chapter that I found difficult to stomach while reading.
