One day you held my hand. One day you loved me.

Then you were gone.

At sixteen, I lost the only love I’d ever known. Thrown back into the foster system, pregnant and alone, I prayed that you’d come for me and save me from life’s cruelties. Only the next time I saw you, it was too late.

Doing what I needed to do to provide for my son, we were finally brought face to face. It should have been the best day of my life, but it was far from it. It was the worst.

That day a monster took me and held me captive.

I begged for my life. I prayed for my son. I dreamt of you, the memories keeping me alive.

You finally came for me. You were my heart. My Salvation.
But sometimes the heart is too damaged, too broken, to be saved.

And sometimes monsters have a way of coming back to haunt me.


*This is a dark story. It is intended for mature audiences. If you need a trigger warning then this book isn’t for you. I have other books of mine that I’d recommend like Current or Tainted by Crazy, but not this one.


Our Review
Gunner and Charlotte

This is our first time reading this author and I am happy to say that we enjoyed our first read by them.We will be looking forward to reading more in this series for sure.


We love reading about those sexy bad boys and those hot as hell bikers they always take care of that fix for us.We always enjoy finding new authors to help with that addiction of them and we are glad to have come across this author to feed our needs.


Gunner and Charlotte were high school sweethearts.They have developed a deep connection between one another the kind that lasts a lifetime. Unfortunately life gets in the way of their happily after ever.Will these Soul Mates find their way back to one another?


I have to say that I loved the story cover to cover.I will point our that it is not a story for the faint of heart.The story contains rape,torture,human trafficking all done by the worst kind of monster which made it such a heart wrenching read.I have to say that this story touched my emotions on so many levels and at times made me a bit nervous and afraid of what would happen next.I cannot imagine how Charlotte survived the horrific things that were done to her.I takes a very strong person to survive and Charlotte's main focus had always been about getting back to her son.Love is what motivated her to survive and perhaps stay sane and hopefully survive the aftermath of it all.


I admired Charlotte as she was always a survivor even since childhood.I love how she was a strong and loving and giving mother.I loved the bond that she had with her son and that of Gunner.My heart broke for the things that Charlotte endeared her entire life.I loved how she survived to become a survivor and not that of a victim. I love how her heart always belonged to Gunner even though they were apart.I love reading about a couple that their love survives the test of time.


I alway pick a favorite character in a story and mine this time around is going to be Gunner.I picked Gunner because he surprised me most about what he felt ,how he acted,and how he followed through with things.I love how he never gave up his search for Charlotte and how he never stopped loving her.I loved that fact that his heart had always belonged to her whether they were together or apart .All these things surprised me the most because of the way he chose to live his current life. His heart always remained opened and never became hardened or jaded unlike most men who chose that kind of life he led.I loved that about him the most.I loved how furiously he loved Jade and that of his son and the lengths he would go to kept them safe.


Gunner was very intense,dangerous,serious,edgy,handsome,love-able all wrapped up into one bad boy package that us girls can't help but fall for.I loved the chemistry between Charlotte and himself it made for some very hot sexual encounters.


I enjoyed this story and all its character's.I love when you are able to connect with the characters that you read about and I was able to do that.The different personalties of the other MC members added to making story a bit more lighter especially when a plot is riddled with pain and suffering.I was engrossed in the plot and that of its characters from the very first pages.I loved that once I started reading the story I couldn't put it down.I loved how intense the story became with its twists and turns it took and I loved that fact that a couple so in love were able to find each other again and get a chance for their Happily Ever After.The story kept you on edge the entire time with anticipation of what would happen next as the secrets kept coming to life one after another.This was definitely a story that you could not help let it affect your heart strings as it did to mine.I loved this intense love story with all of its twist and turns it made for a very enticing and an engrossing read.


A recommended read to all !

How hot can you handle it?

They are bikers.
They are rough, rugged, and raunchy.

The men of the Deathstalker MC Club are also loyal to the core. They stand by their club without question or fear, and when it comes to their women, there's no holding them back. 
They love fiercely and ferociously.
These men play for keeps, getting what they want when they want it. 

No excuses.
No exceptions.
No turning back.

So hop on and take a ride on the wild side--if you dare.

Corrupted


I have to start off by saying this is a new author for us to read and enjoy.I have to say that I enjoyed the author's story of Jordan and Lucy and their journey to finding love and happiness among the Deathstalkers MC.

I have to say that this story was a heart wrenching  story to read.Lucy is brought up in a religion where a man takes multiple wives as long as childhood brides.Although she enjoy's certain aspects of her religion she know's she must find a way to escape.Lucy's desires in life are much more than being more that one mans wife.
Lucy's life changes monumentally when she decides to escape her future.Lucy's escape leads her to the Deathstalkers MC warehouse.This character does not know how much her life is about to change as her religion goes against everything this MC club stands for.

I always find myself having a favorite character in its story and mine would have to be Jordan.I picked Jordan because you could not help but  fall in love with the protective possessive man.He also had a heart as big as the grand canyon along with patience of a saint.I loved seeing him squirm with all his sexual frustrations in dealing with the lovely Lucy.
(chuckling)

Jordan now is a prospect in the MC was assigned as Lucy's protector once coming to the club to look after a frightened and the abused 14 year old girl.It was love at first sight for Jordan he felt and urge to protect and love this beautiful young girl.For Lucy she as well felt the instant connection with Jordan.Jordan foraged and incredible bond with Lucy from the very beginning in meeting one another.As a reader you felt it to.

I have to say that I loved Lucy also.I think out of all the characters we read about we saw the most emotional growth from her.I found as I was reading this story that Lucy was forced to grow up really quickly if she was going to survive in her change of circumstances.Being part of MC life is not for the weak hearted.I also found Lucy to be sweet,innocent,loving and also had a bit of a temper and backbone when warranted.Lucy proved that only the strongest survive that is for sure.She amazed me how strong she was to survive the things that she had overcome past and present.I am not sure I could have done what she did.

I really enjoyed this heart wrenching story of Jordan and Lucy's.This story is not for those faint of heart it deals with all sorts of issues like,rape, abuse,torture and the sexual encounters were super hot.I have to say that the story and the characters engaged my interest from the very first few pages.I found the main characters and those of the MC engaging and gripping to read about.I loved how all these hardened Big Bad A** men all fell for a 14 year old runaway girl treating her like a sister they never had.

I love a story when you are able to connect with the characters from the very beginning which we were able to do.This story was a page turner from beginning to end.I enjoyed being part of Jordan and Lucy's adventure along with all those bumps in their road to get to their happily ever after.You will experience so many emotions reading this story .You won't be able not to become emotional yourself and feel just what these characters are feeling.

I loved reading about these Bad A** Biker Bad Boys Shooter,Twisted,Torch ,Jordan who were all taken down by a mere slip of a girl.The ending wowed me as I never saw what happened coming.I look forward to reading more in this series and reading about the others members that were graced to see in this story as well.



Our Review-Heinous
Twisted and Nikki Story

We met Twisted in Corrupted.I have to say that I really liked him then as he seemed to be the softer of the bunch of his bada** biker brothers.Twisted meets Nikki randomly one night for a one night stand that turned out to be so much more...Another great story in the DeathStalkers Mc series.One thing I have learned when reading this series is that you are going to be reading a heart wrenching story.

There are several things that I loved about the story and a few things that annoyed me but, overall all it was a fantastic read.What I disliked is that Nikki did not shared any details of what she was running from.I could have understood if her man was a suit or every day joe but, Twisted was a man who would have understood .I get that everyone is entitled to their secrets but, she had someone in a position to help her or at least advise her how to escape her situation .I also disliked that when she did spill about things that happened to her she didn't tell the whole truth. Knowing, these things will come back and haunt you later on.I just feel she should have had more faith in him.I feel that their entire relationship she never fought for them as a couple.I know that she loved him so , it made it harder for me to understand the decisions she made .I believe she made the wrong choice's she should have put her trust in him.

I always pick a favorite character and mine would have to be Twisted.He is such a great guy he is caring,has a softer side and has a sense of humor around those he cares about.Twisted is also a very protective and possessive of those he cares about.Although we see the softer side of him occasionally but ,don't get me wrong he is deadly.I like that he is the take charge kind of guy that does not crack under pressure. I liked that he never gives up on what he wants.His motto "its worth the wait.''I also loved  how he deals with all the old ladies of the club who he truly cares about and is a charmer to boot.They love him !Twisted has waited a long time to care about someone.With his messed up childhood and trust issues in which he has not dealt with, he figured he was to scarred for someone to love.I feel the loneliness in him.In Nikki though he senses all these same things and he knows she is running from something. Kindred spirits perhaps?I could sense Twisted's frustrations and pain because I believe he would like to have let down his guard for once.I feel that he would really like to give himself to someone and find love and happiness .You sense his longing.

I loved the chemistry between this couple .Their sexual encounters were super hot and playful events.Nikki and Twisted make a great couple but, to her its only temporary.My heart breaks for her as she knows her freedom is coming to an end.Nikki believes that she will never be able to escape her past.You constantly catch glimpses of her sadness it breaks your heart to see her hurting so much.I loved how she taunts and teases Twisted all the time ,it was funny to see.At these instants you could not help but laugh.I felt  Nikki's pain as she falls in love with Twisted knowing she will never be able to tell him how she feels.Nikki's aura is filled with sadness,loneliness and fear.Nikki would be the perfect fit for Twisted as she has a temper , is feisty, has a sense of humor and is familiar with the MC Life.She also is not naive to hardships of what life deals you ,she has lived them.

The story had everything you could ask for.The story has a mystery to solve,love,laughter,drama,danger,hot sex,bad boys,sexy hot men and friends and family.All of those other characters and their old ladies in the story with their ups and downs helped make it a great read.I just love reading books in series where the character's grace the pages from book to book.I just love that.This story was definitely an emotional roller coaster.The emotional pain was gripping at times and your heart broke for each and everyone of these characters.

This story is not for those who are light hearted.This story deals with rape both adult and childhood ,torture,graphic sex and foul mouth men.All these things through made a compelling fast pace heart wrenching read.Your emotions making you happy, sad,terrified,scared and pissed off all at the same time.

Another great installment in the DeathStalkers MC Trilogy. (This was book Two) A 5 star read from us here a Angels.I highly recommend this book if your a big fan of MC romance and Bad Boys.


Our Review-Chaos
Tracie and Torch's Story

This is a new author we discovered recently and we are really enjoying her DeathStalkers MC series.We are on book three and loving them all.You could say were hooked !This was another gripping story in the DeathStalkers series that turned out to be yet another compelling read.

This story unlike the other in its series this couple Tracie and Torch have known each other for many years both being part of the DeathStalkers MC club.Torch is a bada**brother of the MC and Tracie is the all around go to girl that gets everything done. With this being the case Tracie is considered club property and is under their protection.Tracie is the glue the holds them altogether she see's to their needs and the welfare of men.I noticed that she did all of this without getting overly attached to anyone.

My favorite character that I am picking is going to be Tracie.I loved her personality.She was strong,feisty and had an amazing sense of humor.I loved how protective she was of those she chose to care about and take under her wing.I loved the amazing friendship she had with Lucy that was filled with love and laughter.These two characters were total opposites making their friendship even more remarkable.Tracie is a women who has had a hard life that keeps on kicking yet seems to find some happiness were she can.I loved how she fought her attraction so long when It came to Torch.I understood her reasons and fears why she didn't want to get involved with him. He has all the personality traits that makes her shake in fear.That all may be the case but she is fiercely attracted to the bada** biker. You had to laugh out loud at the thoughts that she was having when talking to herself when thinking out loud about Torch and herself in a sexual encounter .Reprimanding herself is more like it.To funny!I loved how she spoke out against a brother about several injustices that were going on at the club.This took major guts to do something like this ,never knowing what the backlash would be to herself and safety.Tracie is not a girl to cross just ask the ex boyfriend as she dealt with him Tracie style.(I laughed out loud at the breakup in question) Gr inns...

Torch has a nickname for Tracie he is always calling her princess and never by her name which just pisses her off.I love the camaraderie that she had with the ladies of the club they definitely had some fun times.I reallysympathized with Tracie about her decisions  she will have to make about Torch becoming part of her life.Torch could either make her the happiest girl alive or be the one to utterly destroy her.I understand and grieve for her as she know's all to well what a man with Torch's capabilities and dominate personality could crush her mental stability in a heart beat.

Torch has a softer side to him that he does not let many people see.Just making him more endearing.He can be patient and kind and has a bit of humor but, when angered he is a frightening dangerous killer.I love how Torch was patient and kind and gave Tracie the space she needed to decide if he would be worth the risk.Torch understands her fears and hang ups as he knows part of her story yet not all of it.That's why I just love him he doesn't push and yet he has this dominate personality that just wants to do the opposite.One of my favorite parts of the story was when the men are sitting around chatting like girlfriends spilling their wives secrets.Listening to that conversations had you laughing out loud so hard.Can you just picture this? 

This story had so much going on in it making it a fast paced read that tugged at all your emotions in a big way.One minute you were laughing out loud the next crying at the heartbreak these members were experiencing.

One thing that I love about this authors stories she makes you fall in love with their characters.This story had all the elements I love family unity, mystery suspense,humor, drama,heartbreak and major secrets coming to life with the OMG factor.
(I never saw that coming thing)
All the characters play a part in this story lending their quirks to making it a page turner for me.Its important to me as a reader to connect with the characters I am reading about and this author did that for me from the very first pages.
OMG the ending just left you wanting more.Looking forward to reading Broken which is next up in this series.


Another 5 star read from us here at Angels.I recommended to all the MC Romance fans.Just be aware that these books contain a lot of violence and are graphic, emotional and men and women with healthy sexual appetites and their encounters Super Hot!I love reading about those Big Bada** bikers with their possessive and dominate natures making them totally Hot! 
( fanning myself and grinning)

Be sure to check the other books in this series as well and if you do I recommend reading them in the order they came out.

Romantic Suspense

New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover brings heat and heart to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with AVENGED…

Girl meets boy…

On the worst night of her life when she’s decided to take a drastic step that there is no going back from.

Girl is used to sitting by, letting fate deal cruel hand after cruel hand to good people with soft hearts and she’s had enough.

Girl thinks it’s time to fight back against fate and against men who aren’t careful with all the precious things a woman in love has to give him.

Fate shows girl who’s boss and turns her world and plans upside down without breaking a sweat.

Boy meets girl…

On the best night of his life when he’s decided that he’s going to make moves to be the man he was always meant to be instead of the man he was trained and conditioned to be.

Boy is used to a solitary life, quiet in the woods and knowing the only thing that might be looking for him is trouble and trouble is no longer his stock in trade.

Boy thinks it’s time to show trouble who’s boss, even if this trouble has big blue eyes and a body made to make men stupid. Trouble only gets the upper hand if the boy falls prey to its temptation.

Trouble turns the boy’s quiet, serene life sideways without any effort.

Trouble is fun and fate has a wicked sense of humor when it comes to this boy meeting this girl.

Lets start of by saying this is a new author for us a we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.We enjoyed it so much that after finishing this story and that of Never Surrender we purchased two more books in the MacKenzie series.We are looking forward to reading more about those MacKenzie men.

I love this stories plot and it character's .I found them to be engaging, funny, playful,serious,heat-broken,dangerous,regretful,lost,protective,love able,sexy,sweet,caring making them  so intriguing to read about.

I love when two lost soul's find each other and share a connection with one another and have amazing chemistry together.A chance meeting where a couple happens to come into each other life when I just so happens when both are at their lowest points.I love when people who have made bad choices in life are able to find someone they can relate to making it possible where they can finally bare their souls to one another and who would  be able to understand  what they are going through. To sympathize with their past life choices..What I loved about both Echo and Ben is that they owned up to their past's without making excuses and just moved forward to try and make themselves better for themselves and others around them.When shredding their secrets there was no judgement  just sympathy and understanding.Each of them just owned who they were and I really liked that about them.

I always have a favorite character in a story that I pick and mine is going to be Ben.Echo was a favorite to but Ben tipped the scales for me because I loved how he found himself doing things so out of character for him.I saw the most change in his character then any other.Ben could be grumpy,serious,dangerous,deadly,selfish self absorbed and had a huge ego but we saw a totally different side to him when it came to his interactions with Echo.He just amazed me and  had me smiling at every turn.How could this deadly predator treat a women with affection , be gentle and kind and handle her with care and be possessive of someone he just met  and yet be a stone cold killer on the other hand.Ben was instantly attracted to Echo and fought it at every turn knowing he was no good for her knowing that there was not going to be any kind of future for them.What I did love is that he regretted his past for once in his life just wishing he had been a better man and worthy of Echo.I really liked how he teased Echo and called her pet names especially when he gave her the name pop tart.Why that name ? Because he love them. Sigh..I was totally drawn to him with his dangerous aura that sexy grin and that sweet protective side of him making him irresistible .I guess you can say that I fell for him just like Echo did.We always love that certain sweet  knowing it's bad for us yet loving it anyways.We just can't help ourselves its just our one and only sinful indulgence! (laughing out loud)

I have to say that I loved everything about Echo as well.I found her to be sweet ,kind ,love able,sexy,lonely.I felt Echo's pain and suffering at the loss her sister and her guilt at not being able to save her.She took her sisters death to heart and should not have.That guilt only made her resentful , angry and wanting nothing more than to seek revenge for the person she felt  contributed to her sisters death.I loved how Ben helped Echo deal with all of that and put things in perspective so she would be able to heal.I love the chemistry this couple had along with their amazing hot and sexy interludes.One of the things that surprised me the most about Echo is that she never felt afraid of Ben even when she was in no condition to defend herself.They simple bonded and a trust had be formed right from the onset.

I believe that fate put this couple in each other path.The funny thing about fate is that it is not always kind.Even though there may not be a happy after for this couple their being together brought healing to those two lost lonely souls and put them on the a path to find the happiness they were both seeking out of life.I loved this story from beginning to end with all its twist and turns ,it's up and downs ,it's amazing character's that were interesting and you were able to relate to. I was drawn to them from the very first pages.I found myself smiling more than once and chuckling every now and then making it just another fun and fantastic read for us.

I will be looking forward to this author's other works as well. A recommend read to all !
