Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Butcher (The Devil Souls MC #3) By Leann Ashers

He stalked me from the moment he saw me. He watched me day and night. 

Butcher is what everyone calls crazy. They see all the tattoos and scars and to be honest, to most people he looks downright scary. He’s dangerous. He is after all the enforcer to the Devil Souls MC. 

But to me? He’s just Butcher. I see him. I see who he really is. I see a man who will do anything for the people he cares about. I see the man who will protect and love me above everything else. 

I am just as obsessed with him as he is me. I will die for him and he would kill for me. 

What everyone doesn’t know is I have the same crazy inside of me...

This book can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading the others first to get the full experience. 

The third installment in this MC series proves to be a hit in my opinion. I have to be honest I did not read book one, but I did book two and it wasn't my favorite. However, Butcher and Shaylin are a winning combination of possessiveness and sass.

These books are standalones but I'm finding I need to go back and read Torch if I'm going to continue with the series ... and I am. 

I love the mentions of the other characters and so I need to know the back story. In this release Shaylin is a strong lead and the daughter of an MC president .. Butcher is the enforcer which means he's the one who makes sure everyone behaves to say it nicely. 

These two blow up the pages. Great characters .. great storyline and great addition. 
Love this one. Thank you for the ARC and chance to read. 

Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Cessy (A Silent Sons MC #1) By Ambere Sabo

I was born the Princess of an MC I knew nothing about. Thrown into their world of crazy, when I had no other options. Despised by the club for things out of my control. It took me a long time to find my way in this life, but I became the Princess I was born to be. Now they have taken my Pops from me, and I will bring hell on earth to those who caused his death. The Silent Sons have promised to help me find those responsible. While I was looking for answers, I found Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broody. Will he be my saving grace in this life or will we both lose our lives when we find an enemy more twisted than we could imagine?

Cessy is looking and digging. Her father was murdered and she will raise hell and wake the dead to find out who did it .. who took her father from her. He was the one who taught her to be tough as nails .. MC life isn't easy. The man was her life. There had been no one who compared until .... 

Viper is a shadow who doesn't need anyone. This woman doesn't need to drag the MC into her shit. She needs to go look elsewhere for someone to drag down with her. 

As things progress and the hole is dig deeper the two find out there is more to everything .. including each other. Maybe they aren't as different as they think. 

Good read and good start to a series. Thank you for the ARC. If you love MC this is your book.

Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Beard Up (The Dixie Warden Rejects Book 6) by Lani Lynn Vale

Ghost [gohst] noun: the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.

That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision. He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing. Her. 
She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him. 

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

Ghost - something that cannot be seen but you feel his presence. Until you read this story you really don't have any idea what that simple word means. It will explode into something bigger, more fierce, loyal and a greater love than you ever imagined. 

We as readers are bound to secrecy, but what I can tell you is that this is a story you do not want to miss. I had to re-read several pages because my jaw dropped - heart missed a few beats and my words were "no it can't be." 

I could not have loved a storyline more. This is one of my favorites that I certainly will read again. Absolutely brilliant. Standing ovation and the cover is spot on. Thank you Lani! You outdid yourself on this release. 

Thank you for the chance to read. 

Amy's 4 star ARC Review of GUNNER: Southside Skulls Motorcycle Club (Southside Skulls MC # 3) by Jessie Cooke

Tall, dark, sexy, blue-eyed Gunner Davis wears a leather kutte that he believes to be his father's. 
His mother was holding onto it the morning he found her dead. 
All the dreadlocked biker ever wanted was to be part of a family.
When the faces of danger come looking for him, so does a link to a family lost.

Tamara's father Randall, is the VP of the Head Hunters MC Club.
He is over-protective, and the last person he wants anywhere near his daughter, is a carefree and careless associate of a rival club.
Gunner and Randall do have one thing in common... They will kill for those they love.

This is the third book in the Southside Skulls MC Series. 
This is a Standalone Romance Novel but is intended to be read after books 1 & 2… “DAX” and “CODY” where characters in those novels are main players in this story too. 
HEA and No cliffhangers. Intended for Mature Readers.

Holding onto a cut he thinks is his fathers Gunner has no one. His mother was clinging to it when he found her dead. The streets are his home and they aren't safe. His past is lost to him. The leather jacket has to lead to something. But trouble has found him before he found the missing link. 

Tamara is drawn to the man she found broken and bleeding but she will never fall for a biker. Her father would have a say - he is with the rival club. 

When the past meets the present and danger falls all around the one thing Gunner and Tamaras father want to protect the most maybe they will come together. 

Gunner is so arrogant I wanted to punch him. Tamara was the sweet and adoring yet strong female lead I love. Gunner did redeem himself a bit but he was hard for me to not want to smack a few times. Dax and Cody play a huge part in this release although it is a standalone. Good read and good addition to the series. 

Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets. Thank you for the ARC!
