Amy's 3 star ARC Review of A Dangerous Game (Masters of Chaos MC) by Eden Rose

Tainted from her rough upbringing, Sinclair got out of the MC lifestyle the only way she knew how, by going to college and burning bridges with her family and the club that raised her. 

As she's struggling to find balance in her new life away from The Masters Of Chaos MC, Sinclair finds herself being used as a pawn in a dangerous game that will change the course of her carefully planned future. 

She never thought she'd need the help of the man and family she left behind, until her world came crashing down around her. She'll have to trust the club she shunned and a man who betrayed her, because the life she so desperately wanted depends on it.

So I’m not sure about this release. I have very conflicted feelings. I like the characters , but then I didn’t. Sinclair left the MC lifestyle and was disowned by her father for doing so. However, her life choice was not that of a positive one so I’m not sure why she left the MC other than she was hurt by James. It seems her life went down hill worse - maybe that was the point? 

James hurt Sinclair but she left on her own accord. Better known as Hulk, he now needs to protect her. Sinclair isn’t coming quietly. 

Again I liked it but it was short and some of the side characters were a bit confusing. However I will read the next release as I believe they can get more in depth as the series rolls along.
Thank you for the ARC

Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Demons (Devil's Reach #2) By J L Drake


I thought the light would bring redemption.


But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep.

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer.

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell…


I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it.

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of this hell.

But I don’t have a choice…

The reaper is riding bitch on our backs.

DISCLAIMER to add to online listings:

This is Book 2 in the Devil’s Reach trilogy, and it ends with a cliffhanger. Intended for readers 18 or older. May contain…triggers.

This is the second release in this series with Trigger and Tess. Please be aware it may cause your own triggers due to the dark content.

We start back up where we left off with Trigger and Tess - things are being pushed to the limit in this release. Trigger wants Tess safe so she has got to go and Tess wants the MC life. Her mom is something else - let’s just leave that there. 

The dark inside both of these characters is immense. I thought maybe this release we would get square and get some satisfaction, but know you are going to be left hanging again. 
The cover is really brilliant the characters and story line is edgy for sure. Just know picking this one up means another waiting game. There is zero satisfaction in this book so if you can’t handle the wait - well too bad. I’m not crazy over this release because I wanted answers, but I’ll keep on keeping on with this series because it’s a need to know situation. It’s a crazy ride ...

Thank you for the ARC

Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Tap That by Jennifer Blackwood and RC Boldt

The beer's not the only thing getting tapped.


I have a secret. It’ll get me fired if my boss ever finds out…which shouldn’t be a problem except for one thing: my coworker, Reid Morgan. 

He’s cocky, aggravating, and that hot-as-sin mouth simultaneously makes me want to slap him and melt into the mattress. 

Now that he’s discovered my secret, he’s doing everything in his power to take my job. 


I have a problem: my pint-size spitfire of a coworker who’s primed to take my promotion. 

She’s infuriating, sexy as hell, and I just can’t seem to keep my hands off her. 

Now we’re both vying for the same position…and only one of us can come out on top

I absolutely love this author and the collaboration on Tap That did not disappoint. You should put RC on your radar as one of your go to ladies on release day. 

Callie and Reid are a great rivalry. Like all rivalries though there is always an underlying story or connection. These two are no different. Callie comes in to Reid’s territory on a lie. She took his promotion - the job he deserved and now it’s game on. Reid can’t stand the tiny pixie annoying thing that this boss hired for a job that should have been his. The woman is annoying but yet there is something about her that just doesn’t sit right - Callie can’t seem to remember if she is supposed to find the man in front of her arrogant and obnoxious or absolutely delicious and delightful. Her brain and body aren’t working together.
The banter between the two is hilarious just like all of RC’s books. The story is light but intriguing - sinful yet good - and then characters are brilliant. 
I highly suggest clicking this one as well as all her others up. Great release as always - thank you for the ARC!

Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Reckless by Lex Martin

A sexy new standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin.


For the record, I'm not going to hook up with my boss.

I'm a lot of things--a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I'll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.

Ethan and Tori - this is one of the sweetest love stories I have read in a long time. This is also one of the good ones because lately I have been struggling to find a story that kept me wanting to turn the pages.

Ethan needs help. He is managing while waiting for his divorce to be final. How a mother can leave her children is beyond him - he will be fine - but the kids he’s but so sure. Crazy thing is he would probably take her back for the kids if she showed up tomorrow - that is until Tori lands on his doorstep for the nanny position. 

Tori is a mess. She needs this job but also being close to her pregnant sister makes this job all the more important. The last thing she needs is to screw this up. This man -Ethan - she finds he’s not like her last so called love. This man is the real thing.

The relationship between these two characters seemed believable. They learned to like each other - they learned about each other and then ... 
You will read a great story of love, friendship and true happiness. Click it up - thank you for the ARC! Loved this read.

Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Anything For Her (The Hunter Brothers Book 2) by Lola St. Vil

My name is Logan Hunter. I’m former NYPD SWAT. I don't do romance. I don't do relationships; at least not after what happened with my ex fiancĂ©, Shay. I left NYC to take on a series of high-risk recue missions abroad. But last night I got a call from the only woman who could lure me back to the states: my ex. 

Her life is in danger and she needs me to protect her. I also learn that she’s keeping a secret; a secret so painful, she’d do anything to keep me from finding out. Can I get the woman I love to open up and let me in her heart again? After two years apart, can we find our way back to each other? 

This steamy romance is a roller coaster ride that will make you laugh, make you hot, and even make you shed a few tears. It's a full-length standalone novel. You do not have to read the book that came before this one. NO cheating, NO cliffhangers, and a guaranteed Happily-ever-after! This book has adult content for ages 18 and over.

This is a series that I have not read the first book. However, it can be read as a stand-alone. In true form though within the first few chapters I wanted to know about the family I obviously missed. What a fantastic set of brothers. This is Logan’s story. 

Left - cheated on - Shay broke his heart. In return Logan takes on jobs that take him away. She ruined him. But now that same girl needs him. Witnessing an act that she should have never seen Shay is getting threatened. Fearing for her life she calls on the only man she can trust to help and protect her - but will he forgive her. 

This is a second chance romance that is touching and satisfying all at the same time. This is where the author gets you - all the secondary characters you want to know their past and look forward to their future. 

Logan and Shay are well written characters with a lot of turmoil in their past. You might not care for the female lead but give it a chance - things aren’t always as they seem or maybe not as bad - can’t really push that statement much more due to spoilers. 

The writing is solid and was a great sit by the fire page turner. Thank you for the ARC! I’m going back to grab number one!

Amy's 3 star review of Scoundrels & Scotch (Top Shelf #3) by Alta Hensley

I’ll stop at nothing to own her. 

I’m a collector of dolls. 

All kinds of dolls.

So beautiful and sexy, they become my art.
So perfect and flawless, my art galleries are flooded by the wealthy to gaze upon my possessions with envy.
So fragile and delicate, I keep them tucked away for safety.
The dark and torrid tales of Drayton’s Dolls run rampant through the rich and famous, and all but a few are true. 
Normally I share my dolls for others to play with or watch on display.

But not my special doll.
No, not her.
Ivy is the most precious doll of all.
She’s mine. All mine.

*Scoundrels & Scotch is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a splash of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a sip of this TOP SHELF cocktail

So this was super weird to me. Draytons Dolls .. a man who collects women and puts them on display for those to do what he wants. The lead female was willing to come in to the life - Ivy. Victor however decides this one - the perfect doll - he may have to keep to himself. 

I’m not sure what happened in the previous releases and maybe this is what swayed me to not fall in love with this story but it just wasn’t my cup of tea. The story as well didn’t seem finished. 

If you like a very bizarre situation and read then this one is for you

Amy's 4 star Review of Maniac by Nina Auril

The Maniac
Things I should have watched out for: 
The redhead with her face buried in her phone. 
The pixie who made me feel more alive than the speeding blue Shelby underneath me. 
The girl more intense than the music and crowds I surround myself with. 
The cure to all the demons from my past.
The one with the boyfriend who loves her. 
But I didn’t, and now she has to watch me one more time. In a race for my life, and hers. 

The Cure 
Things I should have seen coming: 
The stupid red balloon. 
The road all my wishes led me down.
The 6ft hulk with the easy smile. 
The maniac who rages both on the track and off it. 
The one who doesn’t care that I have a boyfriend who loves me.
But I didn’t, and now I have to watch him one more time. In a race for his life, and mine.

The story of Quinn - Alex and Erik. The is my first read by this author and I did enjoy it. The characters are well written and the depth of real life experiences adds to the ability to be able to connect with the characters. Quinn has had to delay school due to her mother’s health issues. Alex has had not the best life but ours on a party attitude. Erik isn't all he seems to be. Sounds all too true. 

This is the love story of a man determined to get what he wants from a woman who deserves more. I didn’t read the previous release but I did enjoy meeting the characters from the first release. These stories are stand alone so no harm there but I also am a stickler for knowing all characters and how they got to where they are now. 

This is a good easy read. Enjoyed seeing the characters evolve and a love story develop. Thank you for the ARC.
