I lost track of my life. Spiraling down the rabbit hole, I lost myself and became one of them. Living undercover within the MC, the days bled together as I became absorbed in a life of excess and violence. Becoming consumed was easy. Was I Thomas Gallo, good guy and respected cop, or Blue, Sergeant-at-Arms of the Sun Devils MC? Before, I could answer with certainty. But now, there's a darkness that has settled deep in my soul, fusing with my heart and altering my reality forever.

Wow, fan me down. Firstly If you love Alpha protective men then this is a series for you.

I have read previous books and this is Thomas's story. In each book you get a glimpse of each character, the Gallos are a close-knit family and I absolutely love every single one of them. Three yummy brothers one sassy sister and a mother and father that give you parent envy. With each book, the family grows as another of the Gallo men settle down and Izzy finally meets her match too with James.

Thomas aka Blue is undercover working in an MC and finally, after years working away and missing his family, they finally have enough evidence to bring down the MC the only problem is Thomas has fallen for Roxy one of the women in the MC who was brought up in that environment by her biker whore mother.

A great story with a lot of action and hotness. Chelle Bliss really knows how to write the sizzling scenes and I love her dirty talking Alpha men.

I listened to this in audio and loved the dual narration.

Great series and you can grab the first books free in a box set.

If your looking for a series with an alpha males, sassy females and a whole lot of hotness your just can't go wrong with any book by Chelle Bliss and especially the Men Of Inked series.

I have read other books but hadn't read Michael and Mia's story, so when I was in the mood for a good read with an alpha male I dove into my unread kindle treats and jackpot!! it was a knockout and just what I was looking for.

Michael is an MMA fighter, a gentle giant, hes a man with iron fists and a warm heart.

Michael first meets Mia at the hospital when he is brought in with an injury following a fight. Mia isn't impressed with the fighter who goes against everything she stands for. Mia is a doctor, patches people up and saves lives While Michael inflicts pain.

You could say Michael finally wins Mia over with his charm and Witt and the chemistry between both is so hot, I mean how could Mia not resist the Gallow charm?

There's a crazy ex and a whole lot of drama, hotness and a good plot you can't put down.

Michael is part of the Gallow family and being such a close Italian family you get to catch up with any of your favourite characters from other books too. The Gallow family has four delicious brothers, one sister and a few novellas of family gatherings so there's more than enough in this series to keep you entertained.

I haven't read Thomas's story and I am so looking forward to the guy who claims will never be pussy whipped eating his words.

For alpha males, women with backbone and sizzling hotness the Men of inked series is a definite read.

Hooked can be read as a standalone. Told in dual pov and leads to a hea. Available in Audio

I listened to this in audio and loved the narration which really brought the book to life.

It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago. What is supposed to be a fun family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day-old beard clippings.

I absolutely loved this book!!

laugh? Oh boy, I laughed so much.

I enjoyed the sass of Marley and the banter along with childish pranks she played on her brother Paul and what a predicament she faced when finding out she was going on the road of route 66 with her dad and brother as a memorial to her mother only to then find out joining them will be her brothers best friend and childhood crush Porter.


The Mother Road is a sweet and spicy friend's to lovers romance filled with lots of belly laughs along the way.

So many moments had me gushing, swooning or laughing.

This is not a book to be read in a quite doctors surgery, for instance, it has the ability to make you com-bust with laughter when you least expect it.

I listened to this in audio which really made it feel more realistic, the narration was brilliant and they really got into the role characters.

A highly recommended Rom Com. Told in first person dual pov and leads to a swoon-worthy hea.

What a beautiful story!



I have read three books now by Kirsty Moseley, what the heck have I been doing!! I want to devour this author's books right now having just finished Always You as well.

Each book I have read has had a lasting effect on me and each journey is unforgettable, I definitely need to read more from this author.

Always You is a Young Adult cross over into Adulthood and independence. The story of two best friends who become more, well eventually anyway.

I love a friend's to lovers romance and this book has all that and more including heartwarming, heartbreaking and intense moments.

I have to admit Riley and Clay didn't half make me roll my eyes at the beginning of their story, they are best friends who are very touchy-feely, they hold hands, hug and Riley jumps into his arms quite often and then she wonders why her boyfriend gets jealous. Clay has felt more for Riley for a long time and boy is she oblivious to it.

Always You is a journey into what becomes a beautiful relationship with lots of bumps and scrapes along the way to test the strength of not only Clay and Riley's relationship but friendship too but what can I say this is a relationship that could stand the test of time and I loved taking the journey with them.



This is one of those books that I am certain I read a long time ago but Goodreads doesn't seem to have it on my shelf *rolls eyes at Goodreads, so I was not aware I had already read this once I started but things started to become familiar to the point I knew I had read it before so I downloaded the audio and it was like a brand new story for me even though I knew what was coming, the narrator did a fab job of doing both male and female characters. Riley and Clay are in their teens so she didn't have to put on that pretend deeper male voice and it worked.

Recommended YA friends to lovers story.

Woah! That will teach me for judging a book by it's title.




I loved Jonas and Sarah, The Club was not what what I was expecting at all.

I love Lauren Rowe's books, fallen in love with some of the characters and I'm going backwards in her writing, having read all the new releases with the Morgans I wanted to know how it all began and was highly interested in the Faraday family which are inter-linked in a way as they are mentioned in some of the newer books by Lauren.

My thoughts of this being a sex club type of read with bdsm and that kind of thing was completely wrong. The Sex club is completely different and the blurb if only I have read this instead of just looking at the cover explains it really well on how Sarah and Jonas eventually meet.

Basically the Club is a membership where you pay and are given a wrist band and a phone to check into whatever location, another person who is the same colour wrist band as you, In Jonas's case a woman would receive your location and meet you. The wrist band is how they identify one-another and also the colour is what you are given, like colour-coded to your match. It's a no strings kind of hook up for members. I suppose it's like tinder but with a very expensive fee. For a busy businessman like Jonas who doesn't want a relationships it suits his needs.

THE CLUB is different, refreshing and so, so hot!!

Sarah receives Jonas's application which is her first in her new job and she is intrigued by his forwardness and his surety on how he can please a woman which she finds absurd when she has never even had an orgasm, so his "I can make any woman come" ind of statement rubs her up the wrong way and she writes him an email stating her facts. They are never supposed to meet, Sarah never meets the club's clients, she is merely the paperwork girl but but Jonas's finds himself intrigued with Sarah's email and goes on a mission to find the woman who has captivated him with her words.

I have wanted to read this for ages and I am kicking myself now for waiting so long, I loved these characters, Sarah is sassy and outspoken and Jonas is just sex on a swoon-worthy stick.

There is a lot more to the plot than sex although there sure is a lot of it and I am looking forward to the next book where there are twists in the plot with regards to THE CLUB.

I listened to this in audio which I have for a few of Lauren's books and as always it was brilliantly narrated, Lauren always does the female narration which is something I really like, she brings her own characters to life.

Told in first person dual pov and leads to a happy for now with more to follow. Available in Ku and Audio.

It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought, until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch to. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man who crouched down and looked at me like he wanted to eat me alive was none other than my ex.

I really enjoyed this second chance romance.





The Naked Truth is not without its ups and downs and it was definitely a page turner so to speak. I listened to this on audio and I loved the narration, Sebastian York really brought across Gray Westbrook's sexy and cocky demeanor swoon worthingly well.

Gray Westbrook and Layla Hutton meet in prison, Gray is serving time, something to do with money swindling which was a setup and Layla is doing community service, teaching classes for breaching client-lawyer confidence.

Layla and Gray are attracted to each other build a friendship and even after Layla has finished her punishment she continues to see him every week until she sees something in the sign in guest book that has her running.

Over a year later, Gray is a free man, ready to build his empire back up and his first stop is to visit Layla's company and have an attorney for his business ventures and find out why he was left high, dry and existing on the memories of Layla while finishing his sentence.

Layla is just building herself back up from the heartbreak and Gray is desperate to see the woman he fell in love with who just stopped visiting without a word.

There's a lot of push and pull, Layla felt lied to and hurt and Gray really has to work hard to win her trust back.



The Naked Truth has plenty of hot moments, Gray is one dirty talker and oh so sexy.

I enjoyed it, would recommend it. The Naked Truth is an easy read with no major angst or drama.

I ABSOLUTELY ADORED THIS BOOK!!
I listened to this in audio and not only was the narration brilliant but it brought the characters, emotions and feelings to life, I was completely captivated and caught up in Rynna and Rex's story.

The book begins with Rynna moving back home to her Grandmother's house with a plan to take over her legacy as the local baker. Rynna was a victim in her childhood of bullying and torment. A sick and twisted joke broke her to the point that she fled and moved away leaving her Grandmother who she loved dearly and had been her only relative.

Single dad Rex, well, all I can say about Rex is, his bark is definitely worse than his bite and I wouldn't of minded his bite. Rex comes across at first as the guy with a chip on his shoulder, the silent brooding type and rude but put him in the company of his little girl Frankie and he's as sweet as one of Rynna's apple pies and oh what a turn on that was.

“All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed.”

From the moment neighbors, Rex and Rynna meet there is instant chemistry, Rex instantly hates her for giving him feelings he thought he had not only buried but would never feel again.

Two people with hurts in their past, Rynna is a woman wanting to move on and put her past behind her, face her fears now she is back in her childhood town and then you have Rex who can't let his past go, still living in his hurt and anger with the centre of his world Frankie his only joy. One willing to be brave and another struggling to take a chance.

A beautiful romance with a beautiful outcome and eta. Show me the way is the kind of story that has you thinking that maybe some things do happen for a reason and those reasons bring people together.



A recommended heartfelt romance, brilliantly written with a great balance of emotions and hotness. Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea. Can be read as a stand-alone.

This is my third five star read from this author and I cannot wait to read more. A.L Jackson fulfills what I look for in a romance read.

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

I adored Charlotte and Reed and I adored this story. basically, anything Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward turn's out I go gaga over I love their writing, the plots and the characters.

HATE NOTES was So good, so many times I've burst into laughter, I love the characters.

A bit about the plot;
When Charlotte finds a note pinned inside a wedding dress, a love letter to his future wife, Charlotte becomes curious about the man who wrote it and why was the dress now in a second hand store were she was taking her own dress, she knows her story and why she's no longer a blushing bride but why this dress?

Curiosity gets the better of Charlotte and she decides to stalk Reed on Facebook and try and find out more about the man behind the note, maybe it would renew her faith in love again. A drunken night leads to an appointment to view an apartment with Reed, an apartment way above her finances but she goes along with the viewing just to see the man. Reed is onto Charlotte and calls her out, you could say he was rude and arrogant and Charlotte ends up leaving the apartment upset.

Let's just say Charlotte finds herself crying in the bathroom of the building, disappointed with the man behind the note who wasn't what she was expecting at all. Charlotte finds herself unloading everything to a dear old lady in the bathroom of the building, everything, all about her ex, about being jobless and the reason she was so curious to go to see the man who she now hated. Charlotte comes away with a job offer and new hope for her current hopeless life.

When Charlotte and Reed meet again it definitely gets interesting, I laughed at Charlotte she was so funny without trying to be, she certainly could put the stuffy guy in the bow tie in his place and she did so over and over. I loved the love-hate relationship Charlotte and Reed had going on. Reed couldn't escape her even if he wanted to it seemed his Grandmother loved her and she had been hired to be the family's PA.

A great light and humorous romance with a heartwarming hea. I loved it and would definitely recommend. I listened on audio and as always with these two authors choice of narrators it was brilliant, the narrators really brought the characters and the story to life.

This series is so addictive!
Reclamation pretty much picks right up where The Club left off and cannot be read as a standalone.


Jonas has gone from serial dater to being absolutely head over heels for the sassy straight talking Sarah.
I love both of these characters.
In this book Jonas has whisked Sarah away to paradise and on their return, their holiday bubble is soon burst when Sarah finds her apartment ransacked and her laptop also missing.
Jonas is determined to get to the bottom of the shady business of The Club and calls in his brother Josh for help.

There's suspense, hot moments and laughter, these books by lauren Rowe pretty much have it all. Everything I love in a romance read can be found in these pages and it is totally addictive.

I highly recommend this series, I have already read The Morgan brothers series which is another addictive series and I am sort of going backward with Lauren's books but I am loving them and her writing.

I am looking forward to the next book as the suspense, the investigating and mystery behind the club continues.

All this series is available in audio which his highly entertaining to listen to and Lauren Rowe also narrates the female lead, so the book is brought to life brilliantly, I love the audio in this series.
P.s You need to turn the volume down on the saucy bits though and there are lots of them *winks
