Devil’s Due: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter #3) by Manda Mellett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Devil's Due: Satan's Devils MC Colorado Chapter #3Devil’s Due: Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #3 by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this story. I love these characters. I love this series and this author! Devil’s Due is book 3 in this MC series. There are so many twists and surprises in this story. A happy ending does not look like a guarantee and the ride to get there is a bumpy one to say the least!

The characters in this story are so tough and determined. They are loyal and smart. There are times of celebration for them with the birth of a baby and times of heartache when they lose their brother.
When the danger is finally put away, life should get easier.

This story is easy to read in that it flows well. You can always tell who is talking or thinking. There is no wondering as to what the heck is happening. You wonder how the characters will ever survive their heartache though!

I have already one-clicked the next book in this series! I suggest you start with book one and get caught up!

Demon’s Angel: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter Book 2) by Manda Mellett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Demon's Angel: Satan's Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #2Demon’s Angel: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #2 by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love this club and this group of characters. Love this author and how she writes. Action packed, violent, sexy, twisted. Just a few of my favorite things!

The characters and story line follows the first book in this Colorado Series and should be read in order. There are many characters, some are minor and only play minor parts in this story, but have the possibility of becoming more.

Vi and Demon are friends thanks to Vi’s brother Nathan. But without Nathan is there something
more? Demon’s first big test as Prez brings about many changes. Vi also has to face some changes. And the twists that come about with Theo and Demon oh my!

“It really doesn’t matter what his parentage is, it’s all down to how we raise him.”

I wish all people could take this to heart. Life is tough enough.

Definitely recommend this book and this series!

My Life Series: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone – Review by Shannon Fowler

My Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of CamelotMy Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow I love this box set! I read each of these books before they were in the box set but having them all together is even better!

My Hidden Life- book one- is about the Canzano Family but more importantly Alessandra or Aless, as she is called. She is a naive, sweet and seemingly sheltered little girl for most of this story. As she grows up, we learn that she is not so sheltered. She sees and knows things. Her father is Capo or captain of the Mafia Family. And is feared by all. He is grooming Aless to take over the Family and all their dealings. This story and her training start out when she is just 6 years old. Capo is easily one character I can hate.

My Tragic Life is easy to read except when Aless become a killing machine to protect her family. I loved watching her grow and learn through-out these stories. Her feelings about the “men” in her life, especially Grayson and Luigi make me laugh, blush and sigh right along with her. She is probably the strongest female character I have ever read about. Even though Aless didn’t show much emotion during a rather difficult situation, as a reader I sure cried like a baby. This book sure leaves a lot of question for the next one! I can’t wait to see where the Brothers of Camelot come into play.

My Free Life – book three- Great conclusion to the build up of Aless’s life as a mafia princess! This book was easy to read even while I was holding my breath as to what could happen next. I really expected more from Capo/Papa, the jerk face, however I am sure we haven’t heard the last from him. I love how Aless’ men follow her, protect her and really have her back when times got tough.

Highly recommend this box set and can’t wait for more from this author!

SAN DIEGO DEAD (Jake Wolfe Series Book 4) by Mark Nolan – Review by Shannon Fowler

San Diego Dead (Jake Wolfe #4)San Diego Dead by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another amazing adventure with Jake Wolfe and his sidekick Cody. This story is number 4 in the Jake Wolfe series and must be read in order. San Diego Dead starts with action, continues with action and ends with action! Hang on for the wild ride that is Jake Wolfe! Protecting the USA is a tough and violent job so there is a little violence throughout this story. Each story is getting better and better. Characters on top of characters, some from previous stories and some that are new. Being a romance lover I am still waiting for Jake to have his “happily ever after”!

I can highly recommend this entire adventure! If you have read the other stories then you already know you want to read this one!! If you haven’t, what are you waiting for!?!

Ailey of Skye by Wendy Hewlett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Ailey of SkyeAiley of Skye by Wendy Hewlett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Wendy Hewlett so I did not know what to expect other than it was a self-discovery story with a possible love story. Little did I know that 2 chapters in and I would be “a blubbering fool” as well! Parent child relationships are so personal to me because I am both a parent and a child. My relationships with my parents/stepparents is rocky at best; however my relationship with my children is so much better. Whenever I read a story involving parents and their children I always get a little misty eyed. The way Hewlett has written the relationships with Ailey and her family had me sobbing. Then laughing, then angry, then smiling! You know: all the feels!

This story was filled with so many twists and surprises all because one man was a selfish liar. I loved watching Ailey discover herself, her family’s secrets and her new found friends. Everyone needs true friends, ones you can trust, ones you can laugh and cry with, ones that just get you. Friends that are really your tribe!

I don’t want to give away any more of this story but I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to see what else Hewlett has up her sleeve!

Paladin’s Hell: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter Book 1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Paladin's Hell: Satan's Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #1Paladin’s Hell: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #1 by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t know why I don’t read more MC stories! Every time I do I fall more head over heels for them. I don’t know where Mellett has been hiding! I love this author and her club! This story can be read as a stand-alone but little did I know that the Arizona Chapter is where it all starts. You can tell that some of the characters in this book have their own stories. I can’t wait to go read all 9 of those books! And what is next for Demon and the Colorado Chapter!

Paladin’s Hell is about Paladin and Jayden as well as Hellfire and Moira. I loved how this story had two different couples at two different times in their lives. There are not many books with over 40 main characters so having them in this story is so extra! The twists in this story are beyond great. And I even caught myself laughing out loud at Pal and Jay.

“While my breathing returns to normal, I can’t help but laugh at the expression of distaste on her face. “Guess you’re not going to want to swallow.””

Definitely recommend this book!

Virtue & Vice (Spicetopia #2) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Shannon Fowler

Virtue & Vice (Spicetopia Book 2)Virtue & Vice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Virtue and Vice is a fun, sexy story that I can’t get enough of! I am completely loving this series. The idea of an adult amusement park is so fresh and new…well at least in a book it’s new. I know some adults that have dreamed of an “adults-only park” for a while!

This story is hot right from the very first page! I had to share with hubby right away since I thought it was about us! You know the story has to be great when you start with a sexy time!

The characters in this story are fun, ambitious, sexy and entertaining! I love when characters hit turmoil or some unforeseen twist and realize just what could happen if they don’t shape up! Alexander doesn’t disappoint! (I really hope she is writing the next story, quickly!)

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Shannon Fowler

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas #2)Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend, right?”

This is the story of all stories when it comes to who to trust! Cutter is a misunderstood madman. He’s a good guy but has to do some unsavory things to get by in life. War is not easy on anyone.

Valentina is the first female mob guardian. Apparently, she is bad to the bone. But where did she come from? Is she to be trusted? Whose side is she on?

This story, this series, this author, surprises me with her stories every time. Surprises me that she can keep me guessing. Surprises me with the excitement and wonder of a new story.

Definitely recommend McNamee for a good time!

Collision (Shattered Hearts Book 3) by Nicole Banks – Review by Shannon Fowler

Collision (Shattered Hearts, #3)Collision by Nicole Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Collision is book three in the Shattered Hearts Series and needs to be read in order because Kris and Chase’s love story starts in the first book and continues to slowly burn and grow through-out all the books. Kris and Chase start out as friends. Their “relationship” is hard to describe in the fact that they don’t have one. They both want to be with the other but there is always someone or something standing in their way.
“Life could be a vicious b%^&* when she wanted to be. Nothing ever worked out the way you wanted it to.”
I enjoyed reading Collision. Banks writes a good story that keeps the reader engaged and wonder what could possibly hold them back now! This story has many secrets and twists with characters that don’t want to be vulnerable to each other but at the same time characters who can’t live without the other. I recommend this series and look forward to reading more from Banks.

Not So Wrong (Love Grows Book 2) by Renee Regent – Review by Shannon Fowler

Not So Wrong (Love Grows series, Book 2)Not So Wrong by Renee Regent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not So Wrong is the second book in the Love Grows Series and the second book by this author for me. This story doesn’t need to be read in order but you will want to read book one at some time.

Spencer and Melanie are our unlikely couple looking for something more in life. Both hiding their true selves from the world. Hiding their fears and their pain. Spencer is a billionaire, so really what kind of problems could he have, right? Not everything is as it seems. Melanie has no money and comes from an even poorer family. Her problems have problems. Both of their problems and pasts, while different, cause them pain and influence their life choices.

“I had only wanted to show her pain came to all types of people in many forms and for infinite reasons.”

This story pulls at the heart strings, not enough for an ugly cry but just enough to make the adventure so worth it.

Highly recommend this story.
