My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that's it, the conclusion has been reached and Matt and Mac's story has been told.

The series was enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone who has yet to read it. Especially as you can now read one book after the other which for me would have been preferable rather than waiting 2 weeks in between instalments. That said, the story was fun, sexy as hell and also had an emotional element as Matt and Mac tried to develop a relationship with worked for them both.

This final book ticked all the boxes for me though. I was worried that the story would just start to slip away but yet again another hurdle was presented to Mac which she needed to work through with Matt if their relationship had any chance of surviving.

I look forward to re-reading this again at a later date to re-live the story in one go.

Review: Severed Angel

Severed Angel Severed Angel by K.T. Fisher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, I do love my MC books and this is no exception. From the start, this book swept me along at a pace which was thoroughly enjoyable.

This story tells the tale of two friends brought up together but separated to other sides of the world. One, Teresa, returns home with her father to Australia and Severed MC, following the death of her mother and Eve, who is left behind in the UK.

The story commences when Eve travels to Australia for Teresa's wedding to the Prez of Severed MC. On her way there though Eve gets lost and stumbles across a murder committed by Severed MC's rivals, Carnal MC. Carnal's VP is the delightfully named Satan but it's his twin brother, the VP at Severed MC, Angel (Gabe), who comes to Eve's rescue.

With a bounty on her head, Eve must rely on Severed MC and returns to their compound with Teresa for their safety.

The story continues with Angel and the rest of Severed MC deciding what they can do to keep Eve safe and how they can deal with Satan once and for all.

There are elements of violence to this story some of which is quite shocking but it is kept to a minimum with just enough of the gory details to benefit the storyline. On the other side, there is a sweet and touching love story between Angel and Eve. As expected, the language is colourful and the sex between Angel/Gabe and Eve is smoking hot!
"Watch me Eve." He strips before me, I couldn't look away if I wanted to. Angel naked is an image I want to always remember.
I found that as a reader you had to use some imagination with elements of the story especially when Severed MC is looking at ways to trap Satan when in fact they already have evidence in their possession which would lock him up for a very long time. That aside, the story is well thought out and fast-paced.

As expected, the MC supporting cast are also all hotties and with names like Ink, Dragon, Disney and Cowboy how could a girl not enjoy spending time around these men. It is Ink though whose head is turned by Eve much to Angel's chagrin.

The only frustrating part of this book is that it ends on the inevitable cliffie but it is necessary in order for readers to built anticipation for book 2.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves their MC books but also to anyone looking for a story with suspense and intrigue.

Review: Lies

Lies Lies by Jade C. Jamison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is Nicki Sosebee at her very best!

This series is continuing to build momentum as Nicki tries to find the stories hidden within her town's political underbelly. Hiding behind its wealth, the town is slowly starting to reveal its secrets but it's down to Nicki to unearth them and to try to topple those in power.

Just when you think Nicki has enough in her plate though, she finds herself in yet another love triangle. With herself and Sean firmly placed in one corner, this time the other corner is taken up by her latest love interest and local tattoo artist, Hunter Landry. He may sound like every girls dream with ink and a piercing to shock your Grandmothers, but Hunter soon starts to show his true colours but never fear, Sean is still at hand to save the day, if not Nicki’s heart.

As forewarned, Lies has a darker, deeper and altogether sexier edge to it and the boy next door feel has become something altogether more sinister which, call me twisted, I loved. I initially sat up and became EXTREMELY interested in Hunter but then my interest plummeted and I soon found myself wanting Sean to come to Nicki’s rescue once again.

As normal, Nicki continues to balance two jobs but with the Newspaper making cutbacks and the restaurant still struggling under its new ownership, Nicki has some difficult decisions to make.

I can't wait to read on in this series, I really do think this is Jade's best series to date!

Review: Fracture

Fracture Fracture by Callie Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG can this series get any better?!!! The chemistry between Sloane and Zeth is almost palpable and I love the edginess to Zeth's character. Yes I know I shouldn't be a fan of his, he's a dangerous psychopath after all, but his vulnerability where Sloane is concerned makes you want more and more from him.
"You're perfection, angry girl. No need to huff and puff. I'm gonna take care of you."
Fracture picks up right from where Deviant left off with Sloane & Zeth asking Pippa for help with Lacey. After an explosive scene between Sloane and Zeth, Sloane pushes Zeth too far and he disappears for two weeks only to return with Lacey in tow and asking Sloane to take care of her while he goes looking for Sloane's sister.

Zeth assumes all is well with his relationship with Charlie but after a job goes wrong, Zeth is left wondering when Charlie stopped trusting him.

The story continues with Zeth working to find Alexis but in doing so, and turning his back on Charlie, he puts Sloane and Lacey in danger.

I love Sloane and Zeth's relationship and I squealed at the end of the book because I need to know what happens next, NOW!!!! Yes, this ends on a cliffie but I'm sure it's going to be well worth the wait to find out what happens to Sloane and Zeth.

5 Star Review: Reparation (Legal Affairs #1.5) by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well you can't say you don't get enough steaminess from Mac and Matt!!!

After accepting his feelings for Mac, Matt starts to enjoy the pleasures of being in a relationship with her and tries to ignore any nagging doubts he has based on his previous hellish relationships.

Once again this was another quick and satisfying read and I am still really enjoying the premise of the storyline and especially the characters, Matt and Mac. Matt has his flaws, yes, but as the series moves along you can see why and what he's going through to fight his demons, one of which shows up at the end of this story.

Only one more book to go, which is a shame as I'm really getting into this series now!

4.5 Star Review: Toxic (Ruin, #2) by Rachel Van Dyken

4.5 Stars

Finally, it's Gabe time and he didn't disappoint. I don't know if it's because I listened to the book via Aubible but Gabe seemed to be a completely different character in this book. Gone is the funny, loveable rogue and in comes a version who is deeply troubled, angry, hurtful, dismissive and most of all cruel, especially to Saylor, the poor girl who turned to listen to his music only to find herself the target of his full on emotions.

Never fear though, as the story progresses you develop a new love for Gabe and when you realise what he's endured through his life you can't help but cry, for him, for Kimmy/Princess and for the life they loved and lost.

I do find these stories very wordy and they tend to be a little repetitive with scenes recounted again and again but each time with more heartbreak. That said, I really enjoyed the story and as I neared the end I was really crying and gasping at the beauty of the story.
