Tacker (Arizona Vengeance, Book #5)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: November 5, 2019




Synopsis:


I am not okay.

Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.

Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.

But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.

The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?

Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.

I am not okay.
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.

5 Star Review: Tacker (Arizona Vengeance, #5) by Sawyer Bennett

Friday, 1 November 2019 No comments

This series has been my be-all and end-all since the very beginning. I have loved each and every story and each and every character but there was always one player that stood out from the crowd crying for his story to be told. That character is Tacker. He is the dysfunctional but loveable team-mate who tragically lost his fiancee when the plane he was flying crashed. Until now we did not know the full story, just the tragic conclusion from what should have been the build-up to Tacker’s happiest day of his life.

With Tacker practically reaching the pinnacle of his self-destructive actions, his team and friends step in with an ultimatum. He has to speak to a counsellor, something Tacker has always avoided not wishing to re-live those fateful and incredibly painful moments again, or he is off the team. As expected, Tacker’s first experience of talking to a counsellor doesn’t go well and it’s not long before he’s back in team owner Dominik Carlson’s office asking for another recommendation. It’s at that point that Dominik suggests Nora Wayne.


Nora runs an alternative therapy service which focuses on healing and recovery. Working out of her ranch, Nora uses horses alongside her therapist skills mainly on children to encourage them to heal and re-engage with society rather than, in some cases, ending up in juvenile detention.


When Tacker arrives at Nora’s ranch, he immediately comes across a scuffed cowboy boot-wearing woman who is working with a young boy. Watching them together, Tacker is immediately intrigued by this mysterious woman and despite knowing that she may not be able to help him, finds himself attracted by what she has to offer.


Tacker finds Nora’s therapy style bluntly honest yet refreshing. Nora’s right-hand man, Raul, whilst gruff in demeanour, also starts to warm to Tacker until he realises that Tacker and Nora start to have feelings for one another. Between the two of them, Nora and Raul give Tacker what he needs and that is a distraction from his own life and unending thoughts of his fiancee.


When Tacker finds out that Nora’s business needs all the help it can get, the team immediately steps in and does what it can to assist by both providing labour and also much-needed funds and before long, Nora is one firmly one of the Vengeance family.


Not without her own problems and tragic past, Nora opens up to Tacker about her own upbringing and the path she took to become the woman she is today. It’s by revealing how she recovered from incredible pain that Tacker comes to realise that maybe Nora does understand what he is going through and the pair soon become close.


Tacker, as expected, struggles to come to terms with his growing feelings for Nora. Ranging between anger and guilt, he finds himself facing a new battle but this time it’s a battle that he can win, with time.


This story is so brutally honest and painful it literally hurts to read it. The story is wounded by its own conscience and yet refreshingly thought-provoking. Heartstrings are stretched to capacity and just when you think they will snap, you find them being gently caressed back to life with the heart-warming story that is borne from the tragedy of Tacker’s accident.


Whilst I was desperate for Tacker’s story, I am so pleased to see that there is so much more to come from the Arizona Vengeance team and especially it’s enigmatic owner, Dominik Carlson. Will the man who has everything be able to win the battle for the one thing he desires, Willow Monahan. Only time will tell.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!


IMG_1621

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.
Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.
Sweet.
Caring.
Charitable.
Quiet.
Fake.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
To live.
To love.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
Gorgeous.
Athletic.
Rugged.
Popular.
Liar.
This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Excerpt:
Right now I wanted to just be here in silence with my best friend. And somehow, I don’t know how, but Luna sensed it. So we sat there for what felt like two hours but was probably a lot less, until I opened my eyes again. Her eyes were closed, too. I watched her for a while.
When she opened her eyes, it felt like she took something away from me.
“Let’s jump,” she said.
“I’m quite fond of my limbs, Moonshine.”
“Stop being such a big baby.”
“Big, quarterback baby who just finished a football season in one piece and would like to keep all his body parts intact.”
She crawled out of the treehouse and settled on the branch. It was thick, but I doubted it could carry my muscular ass for more than a few seconds before snapping. I rolled my eyes and settled next to her. She slipped her hand in mine.
“Three, two, one.”
It was a short, sweet way down.

Wicked Angel (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #6)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: August 6, 2019



Synopsis:
First there was pain, and now there is just… nothing. No one can ever understand the losses I’ve suffered. A solitary existence that consists of my work and the empty house that serves as a constant reminder of all I have lost.


After months of paralyzing emptiness, I turn to The Wicked Horse so I can feel something. Anything, really. Any shred of emotion that will explain why I’m still here. Any justification for why my life was spared and theirs were not.

It’s all in vain. Not even the debauchery of the notorious sex club can fill the hollowness that consumes me.

Until she walks in.

Absolutely perfect. Gorgeous and bends to my will. Gives me her body willingly, while expecting nothing more from me than the pleasure I offer her. And the more she gives, the more I find myself wanting to take.

Wanting to crawl out of my personal hell for this wicked angel.

5+++ Star Review: A Pack of Love and Hate by Olivia Wildenstein

Wednesday, 31 July 2019 No comments



5+++ Stars 🐾🐾

This series has quickly sky-rocketed to one of my all-time favourites. All three books have been fast-paced and captured the story of shifter love, life and rivalry perfectly, in my opinion. The characters are all memorable and with a delicious love triangle, you can’t help but want to be in Ness’ shoes, or rather, paws!

Whilst the first book made you fall in love with Liam Kolane, books 2 and 3 endeared you to August Watt. I didn’t think anyone could rival Liam for my affections but I do believe I ended up wishing and hoping Ness had a HEA with August. When there’s a choice is between youth and experience, who would you choose?

As expected, this instalment prepares you for the battle of all battles as Liam and Ness prepare to take on the Creek Alpha and her loathsome second. Liam wants Ness all to himself whilst he’s training her but will her feelings for August be too much for her to bear or will Liam find a way to break their bond.

I have to admit to reading this book rather more tentatively than others. I was turning each page with dread as I feared for the worst for the characters that I have come to love. When the battle finally came around, I could hardly manage to open my eyes as I was convinced that the author was going to literary (get it!!!) kill me with this story.

These books are amazingly well written and Olivia Wildenstein has definitely left me wanting more from her talented writing and storytelling skills. If you love shifter stories, or even if you don’t, you really don’t want to miss this series and this author’s wolfish writing. What’s next, hmmm there appears to be a mention of feathers on the wind.

4 Star Review: Fallen Saint (All The Pretty Things, #2) by Monica James

Tuesday, 9 July 2019 No comments


Oh Saint, how you steal my heart!

From what was a fast-paced first instalment in this trilogy, part 2 continues in the same vein, with drama, excitement, hope, and frustration as Willow continues to be held against her will, this time by the enigmatic and dangerous, Aleksei Popov.

Saint works to ensure that Alek understands that he’s been working in support of him all along and not trying to find a way to release his sister and whilst keeping Willow out of his clutches, but despite trying to outwit his Russian counterpart, Saint finds himself one step behind Alek at every turn. Willow becomes more and more confused by her surroundings and by her captors and starts to question right from wrong as Saint and Alek both try to make her believe that their love for her is real and that their intentions towards her a truly honourable. Alek, the master manipulator, makes Willow see him not as a monster but as a misunderstood man with a painful upbringing and with Saint wanting Alek dead, Willow struggles to understand her feelings towards Alek.

Release Blitz: Dax by Sawyer Bennett

Dax (Arizona Vengeance, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: July 9, 2019


Synopsis:
The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.

Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.

So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.

The catch?
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

5 Star Review: Dax by Sawyer Bennett

Friday, 28 June 2019 No comments


Gah, this series is my crack!

I love each and every character (so don't make me choose) but I do have a sweet spot for Dax, although I suspect Tacker will wipe the floor with everyone else.

We had a hint to where Dax's story was heading in Legend's book when Dax heads off to meet the sister of his long-time friend who recently died. What Dax doesn't expect is to find is that Regan has a serious health condition and no way to keep up with its costly treatment. Sweet man that he is, Dax steps in and saves the day but it's at a cost that neither he nor Regan are prepared for. Regan is out of options and agrees to Dax's suggestions in the hope that she can start treatment again soon.

With Dax and Regan living together, their story starts in earnest and whilst Regan is relatively inexperienced around men she more than makes up for her shortfall with her enthusiasm, especially towards Dax.

During this story, we also get to meet Willow, Dax's sister, and someone who is destined to be a force of nature in this series. She is quick witted and feisty and knows what she wants from her men and that's definitely not a relationship, or has she just not met the right man yet?

This series is so easy to read and without too much drama. I have loved every character and every story to date and I can't wait to read on.

5+++ Star Review: A Pack of Vows and Tears by Olivia Wildenstein

This really is the most amazing shifter series. It has drama, suspense, twists and turns and above all, a complicated love triangle between Ness, Liam, and August. The story continues to fascinate and dominate my thoughts and I really can’t wait for the next instalment.

Having loved reading A Pack of Blood and Lies, I listened to the audiobook before starting APoVaT. This added further depth to my overall reading experience and I will definitely do the same before book 3.

For me, the strength of the story lies in the detail and the fact it’s not “just another shifter book”. It feels different, it acts differently and it pulls you into the storyline with ease. This instalment had me an emotional wreck. The author wasn’t lying when she said Liam would break my heart.

Just as this nightmare began, I once again find myself bound, destination unknown. However, this time, my kidnapper is the man who shattered my world beyond repair.
Aleksei Popov—Russia’s number one mobster, and the man I was sold to.
His intentions for me are clear—submit, obey him, and call him master—but I won’t surrender. I’m not like the other girls. Whether that’s a blessing or curse, I’ve yet to decide. The problem is, my disobedience intrigues my captor all the more.
When we arrive in Russia, the rules change.
Saint, the man who was once a sinner, is my only salvation. What was forbidden now gives me hope that there is light in the darkness. He will risk everything to set me free.
But behind these opulent walls, things aren’t what they seem, and when the fine line between pleasure and pain begins to blur, only one thing matters—saving my soul.
I will lie.
Cheat.
Steal.

Blurb 

I was kidnapped on my honeymoon by three masked men.
Blindfolded.
Bound.
Destination unknown.
I was told to stay silent and abide by their rules. But they didn’t realize I wasn’t a victim…not anymore.
The open sea was my backdrop for nine torturous days. During that time, glimmers of my fate were revealed by a man with the mysterious chartreuse-colored eyes. He should have scared me, but he didn’t.
He intrigued me. And I intrigued him.
He punished me when I didn’t listen, which was every single day. But beneath his cruelty, I sensed he was guarding a grave secret.
I was sold.
And in a game of poker, no less.
My buyer? A Russian mobster who likes to collect pretty things. Now that I know the truth, I only have one choice.
Sink or swim.
And when one fateful night presents me the opportunity, I take it. I just never anticipated my actions would leave me shipwrecked with my kidnapper.
He needs me alive. I want him dead.
But as days turn into weeks, one thing becomes clear—I should hate him…but I don’t.
My name is Willow.
His name is Saint.
Ironic, isn’t it? He bears a name that denotes nothing but holiness yet delivers nothing but hell. However, if this is hell on earth…God, save my soul.
