Blurb:

Fallen is the fourth book in the Blood & Roses series. Make sure you check out Deviant, Fracture and Burn prior to reading this instalment.

Sloane

For over two years, Sloane Romera has pinned everything on finding Alexis. Life was going to get better. Easier. Happier. The nightmare of having a missing sister was supposed to end, and everything was supposed to go back to normal.

However, now that she’s found her sister, Sloane is discovering that life has a way of ridiculing what we expect of it.


Nothing is easier. And ‘normal’ is falling for a man who might never be able to feel the same way. 


***


Zeth

A lengthy history of breaking things with his fists has given Zeth Mayfair a fairly good idea of how to get his own way. But when his goal, the one, single woman on the face of the planet that he’s truly ever wanted, can only be obtained by fixing things instead of destroying them, how can he adjust a lifetime of violence in order to make her his once and for all? And how can he make sure that she is safe?

The first part is going to take time. But the second part…


The second part is easy.


He must kill Charlie Holsan.

My Review:

All hail Queen Callie and her fantastic Blood & Roses Series. Only Callie could take an unredeemable character and turn him into every woman's Dark Avenging Angel. Callie Hart is one author you are going to want to remember. Her books make you want things you never knew you wanted, as well as, make you feel things that you would never reveal to anyone especially your closest friend....lol.

Sloane Romera's world has been turned upside down when she finds out just what happened to her sister after she disappeared. Once Sloane found Lex she thought her world would be whole again but with each passing moment she knows nothing could be further from the truth. She has also fallen for a bag guy whom she feels may never be able to feel the same about her.

Zeth Mayfair is having trouble reconciling his need for violence with his need to be Sloane's Prince Charming (so to speak). Zeth is having trouble coming to grips with his growing feelings for Sloane. He is not the usual type of guy girls should bring home to their parents but for the first time Zeth wants to be. With his former Boss Charlie still in the mix Zeth knows none of that can happen, at least not yet.

I am a fan for life of author Callie Hart. I know that what ever she writes is going to be worth reading.  I have no idea what I am going to do with myself while I wait impatiently for Twisted (Book #5) to come out. This series has given me such a book hangover. On a scale from 1-5 I give Fallen ROARING 10. If you have to ask me why then you obviously have not read this fantastical series. If you want to dig further into Zeth and Sloane's relationship, if you are looking for a series that will keep you coming back for more, a Dark Romance, or if just want to read about the the kind of people you have always feared than Fallen is the book for you. I implore EVERYONE adult 18+ to pick up a copy of Fallen. If for some unknown reason you do not have copies of Deviant (Book #1), Fracture (Book #2), or Burn (Book #3) (review of all three are below) than you need to run (don't walk) and pick up Callie Hart's Blood & Roses Series books 1-4 and find out exactly why Callie Hart is a writing force to be reckoned with. Let Zeth and Sloane tell you precisely what happens when you mess with people they care about.

Blurb:

Book 3 in the Blood & Roses series.

Please be aware that this is a Dark Romance novel and deals with serious themes, including violence and murder.


This story is the third part in a series, each approx. 30-40k words in length.


Please note * this is the re-edited version of the book. The novel sold on release day contained minor errors, all of which have now been resolved.


Sloane

I’m not safe.

I haven’t been safe for a while now.


I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is in danger himself. With Julio on one side, and the leader of the Widow Makers MC on the other, the smartest thing to do would be to run. I’ve been running long enough, though.


This is the closest I’ve come to finding my sister in two years.


I can’t back down now.


Zeth

My right hand man’s being tortured in the basement.

The guy who tried to buy Sloane’s virginity is burning rubber in our direction.


My psychotic boss is on a mission to find me, and the girl I’m supposed to be keeping safe has landed herself right in the middle of all of this.


Just another breezy weekend in the Californian desert.


What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours?


My Review:

This series gets better and more intense with each book I read. Just when I think I have things figured out Callie throws a monkey wrench at me and I am left shaking my head all over again (in a good way). I love the fact that Callie keeps me on my toes and always guessing what is actually going to be coming or happening next.

Sloane Romera finds herself in enemy territory. Being a "guest" of Julio Perez isn't as easy as she hoped. Just knowing that her sister could be near by keeps Sloane on high alert. The longer Sloane stays in Julio's compound with Zeth the harder it is for her to not get sucked into his world and not want to leave because she is too attached to him.


Zeth Mayfair not only has to deal with Julio but also the Widow Makers MC biker crew while trying to save Michael. On top of that, Zeth has to try and keep Sloane safe while she searches for her sister and he deals with Michael's relationship to the Widow Makers MC President.


If you have read Deviant (Book #1) and Fracture (Book #2) then you know at this point I can't say anymore for fear of ruining some, if not all, of the story yet to come. On a scale from 1-5 I give Burn a phenomenal 10. Like the first two books, Burn is also off my scale because Callie really knows how to keep her readers on the edge and begging for more. If you are looking for a great dark and dangerous read with forbidden attraction and more twists and turns than you can throw a stick at then Burn is the book for you. I think EVERYONE adult 18+ NEEDS to go and pick up a copy of Burn. If you haven't read Deviant (Book #1) or Fracture (Book #2) (reviews below) first then you have to pick those books up, as well as, Burn. Come discover how Zeth and Sloane deal with Julio and the MC bikers.

Reviving Haven Release Day!!!!





******STRONG LANGUAGE & EXPLICIT SEXUAL SCENES******18+

The only man Haven Wells ever loved left her broken, feeling emotionally battered and imperfect. Seven years later she's found solace in the bookstore she owns, finding love between the pages of the books she reads. Haven has adapted to a life without love or men, living vicariously through her best friend and roommate.

He's Perfect. Just ask him. Latch McKay is gorgeous, rich and successful. A famous graphic designer, he's well known for the video games he creates. However, he's also known for the trail of women he leaves behind. Latch is the walking, talking definition of wanton sex.

When Latch sees Haven at a party it's lust at first sight. A night of intoxicated passion leaves him wanting her so much he's almost willing to give up his man-whore crown. Haven has no idea why this gorgeous and much younger man wants her. After two weeks of Latch stalking her...his version of wooing — Haven has tried everything to make him go away.

But, Latch doesn't give up, and Haven finally agrees to one date. If Latch can break through Haven's walls, he just might have a chance to keep her. Unfortunately Latch has a secret of his own. As Haven's walls begin to crumble, Latch's dark secret begins to emerge.

Blurb:

Zeth Mayfair is pretty much the very last thing I need in my life. And yet with every breath I take he becomes more engrained in every aspect of it:

He has a key to my house.


He knows where I work.


He dumped his strange, mentally traumatized housemate on my doorstep and has driven off into the sunset in search of my missing sister.


I want to forget him. Want to change the locks and blot out his face, scourge his very name from my memory. The problem is that I also need him. I need him more than I need air to breath, and I can’t be without him now.


He owns me.


He torments me.


He’s fractured me.


My Review:

Fracture is a great next step in the Zeth and Sloane saga. I loved how Chapter One shows you Zeth doesn't play games when it comes to getting the information he seeks. Deviant (Book #1) left Sloane in a very flustered state which continues in Chapter Two of Fracture right where Author Callie Hart left us with our jaw hanging open. Callie has a way of making her characters come alive.

Sloane Romera tries to come to grips with her feelings for Zeth. When he leaves town for a while, Sloane is left to babysit Zeth's house guest Lacey. Sloane and Lacey soon discover what it feels like to live in Zeth's world. Sloane knowing all this, still runs to Zeth in the hopes that he can protect her and Lacey.


Zeth Mayfair is a lethal man on a dangerous mission to find Sloane's sister Lex and bring her home. Zeth is starting to discover his feelings for Sloane are anything but fleeting. In Zeth's world feelings could mean a death sentence because in his line of work emotions get you a one way ticket to the grave.


One wrong slip and I could ruin this series for everybody but just know there is a lot more going on in this book. Not only do we get a bigger glimpse into Zeth's past but we learn more about Lacey and Sloane starts to discover just how resilient she really is. If you are looking for a new author who writes believable stories with realistic characters than Callie Hart is that author. On a scale from 1-5 I give Fracture an off the scale 10. She has a rare gift for superb storytelling. EVERYONE adult 18+ needs to run out an pick up a copy of Fracture. If you haven't read Deviant Book #1 (review below) you should pick up a copy of that book as well. If you  are looking for a dark romance, life altering decisions, loyalty, and just an all around fabulous story than Fracture is the book for you. Come learn why Sloane and Zeth can't stay away from each other.

Sloane

I'm not proud of the things I've done.
The things I've had to do.
The things I've given away.
but I'd give it all over again to find her.

Even if i die trying,

I have to find Alexis.

Zeth

She wants me to help her,
But I won't.
She wants me to save her sister,
But I can't.
She wants me to be her hero,
But I'm not a good man.

I am her damnation.

My Review:

I now have another brilliant author to add to my repertoire. Callie Hart has blown me away with Deviant. I knew from the blurb that this book sounded intriguing but I was in no way prepared for this powder keg. It gripped me from the first sentence and totally changed how I felt about Zeth from beginning to end. Callie is a powerful writer and really lets you into the inner workings of Zeth and Sloane's mind.

Sloane Romera is a shell of the person she used to be. Ever since Alexis "Lex" disappeared she hasn't been able to truly live her life. In a way, Lex disappearing makes Sloane a better Resident Doctor. When you can't feel anything you can concentrate on your job better and nothing holds you back, at least that is how Sloane feels at the moment. When Sloane and Zeth cross paths it slowly sends her down the proverbial rabbit hole searching for the one thing she just can't seem to grasp.

Zeth Mayfair is the kind of guy any normal person would cross the street to get away from and that is just how he likes it. Zeth has not lived the typical picket fence lifestyle but that has only molded him into the dark and sinister deviant that he is. When Zeth first sets eyes on Sloane he sees something in her that makes him wonder what is hiding behind her vacant eyes. 

I have been obsessed with dark romances lately and Callie did not disappoint with Deviant. This book has so much more going on but with this being the first book saying ANYTHING more with reveal to much of what would be happening in this book and the subsequent books in the series. On a scale from 1-5 I give Deviant a great BIG 10. It had all the bells and whistles of a great dark romance with enough wtf moments to keep me captivated. If you are looking for a great dark romance that takes you out of your comfort zone and throws you into a world that most people would hide under there beds from then Deviant is the book for you. I encourage EVERYONE adult 18+ to run out and pick up a copy of Deviant. Let Zeth and Sloane show you that, even in the dark, unexpected and amazing things can happen.

My Book Rating System

Since the day I started reviewing books (2009/2010) I have always used a scale from 1-10 to rate the books I have read. As of today, I have decided to change my scale from 1-10 to 1-5 in keeping with most book sites that rate books (i.e. blogs, Amazon, GoodReads, Barnes And Noble, etcetera). But I still reserve the right to jump to rating a book a 10 if the book has effected me or blown my mind beyond the norm....^_^.

SAVAGE LOVE: FIERCE, SEDUCTIVE, AND LIMITLESS...

Shelly "Saffron" Reagan's life is in shambles, and it's about to get worse. Keeping up a broken home and a brother in the vicious Grizzlies MC is more than any woman can handle. Remembering the tough talking biker who nursed her after a savage attack is all she has, a bad boy who's impossibly out of reach.

Or so it seems.

When Saffron gets caught in biker's crossfire, there's only one man to lead her out. One man to protect her, one man to lay his claim, one man to make her burn forever with his kiss...

Michael "Blaze" Sturm swears he won't get tied down by any woman. Easier said than done when the babe with the body he can't forget keeps storming back into his life. When he answers her desperate call one dark morning, nothing will ever be the same.

As President of the new Prairie Devils Montana charter, Blaze always gets his way. Now, his sights are set on beautiful Saffron, and he won't stop until she's wearing his brand and surrendering her lips. 

Will Saffron find outlaw love in his fire - or will Blaze's harsh world turn her heart to ashes?

Note: this is a dark and gritty MC romance with language, violence, and love scenes as hard and raw as they come. Outlaw love strikes without mercy!

The Prairie Devils MC books are stand alone novels featuring unique lovers and happy endings. No cliffhangers allowed! This is Saffron and Blaze's story. 

My Review:

I really hope there is going to be a least one more book in this series. I really need to know what happens to one of the Prairie Devils and I also want an up date on the three couples thus far. I am so glad I picked up Nicole Snow's Prairie Devils MC Series. She just makes me LOVE MC books even more now.

Shelly "Saffron" Reagan used to dance at Pink Unlimited until it went up in flames. Having a brother in the Grizzlies is not making life easy on Shelly. One desperate act causes Shelly to re-enter Blaze's world. Now that Blaze is back in her life Shelly is having a hard time trying to hide his effect on her.

Michael "Blaze" Sturm is the Club President of the new Montana charter of the Prairie Devils. Blaze gave up being a Nomad to start building himself a life in Montana. Answering Saffron's call starts Blaze and his club down a dangerous road.


I have to stop here or ruin the rest of this book for everyone. This book keeps you hooked and saying OMG til the very end. I am jonesing for a fourth book. I just can't get enough of Nicole's Prairie Devils MC Bikers. On a scale from 1-10 I give Savage Kind Of Love a HUGE 10. I think, of the three books, this book is the darkest and most gritty. It pushed the limits of just how much one person could take before they start to crumble. If you are looking for a truly dark and gritty story, HOT biker, a down on her luck ex-stripper, or just a great read than Savage Kind Of Love is the book for you. I think everyone Adult 18+ should go out and pick up a copy of this book. If you Haven't read Outlaw Kind Of Love (Book #1) or Nomad Kind Of Love (Book #2) then while you are buying Savage Kind Of Love you should also grab books #1 and #2 (review of both books below). Saffron and Blaze want you to hear their story in their own words.

NOMAD LOVE: OVERWHELMING, FREE, AND UNFORGETTABLE...

June Daniels watched helplessly as the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club destroyed everything she ever cared about. The ruthless gang controls her shattered life, condemning her to darkness without end...until she meets him.

Aaron "Maverick" Sturm doesn't know what it means to settle down. The President of the Prairie Devils Nomads charter is way too hardened, untamable, and dominant for any old lady.

But when he's sent West to establish a new charter, the beautiful woman he takes as collateral from the Grizzlies upends everything. Instincts Aaron never knew existed start to rage, primal desires to love and protect her in his bed, on his bike, and in his heart.

This bad boy loves a challenge. Claiming broken, mysterious June is his fiercest ever.

She can't forsake her need for vengeance on the Grizzlies. He can't let go, even when giving her what she needs most brings savage politics and blood war between MCs.

Will June find love and justice with her outlaw savior - or will her bitter determination ruin the man she loves and his club?

Note: this is a dark and gritty MC romance with language, violence, and love scenes as hard and raw as they come. Outlaw love takes no prisoners!

The Prairie Devils MC books are stand alone novels featuring unique lovers and happy endings. No cliffhangers allowed! This is June and Maverick's story.

Word count: 58,500+ word (255 page) motorcycle club romance novel.

My Review:


Nomad Kind Of Love did not disappoint. I thought "Throttle" from Outlaw Kind Of Love was HOT but oh my goodness I am so into Maverick and his brand of justice. I am so excited to read Savage Kind Of Love Book #3 next.

June Daniels grew up in the MC lifestyle thanks to her dad "Spinner" was a Member of the Grizzlies MC, Missoula. Being at the mercy of the Grizzlies is not something June can escape from, that is until she meets Maverick and he takes her as his charter's collateral.

Aaron "Maverick" Sturm is President of the Nomads (Prairie Devils charter) and has been tasked by his Mother Charter's President "Throttle" to open up a new charter in Python. When Maverick takes June as his clubs collateral he wants her for more personal reason as well.

Trust and believe me when I say there is so much more that goes on in this book. I could tell you more but then I would ruin Maverick and June's story for you. I am loving Nicole's dark and gritty MC bikers. After I read book #3 Savage Kind Of Love I would definitely read more MC books written by Nicole. On a scale from 1-10 I give Nomad Kind Of Love a great big 10. I really loved this second installment to author Nicole Snow's Prairie Devils MC Series. If you are looking for a super HOT sexy biker, clashing biker MC's, revenge, or just a dirty HOT read then Nomad Kind Of Love is the book for you. Everyone Adult 18+ needs to pick up a copy of this book. If you haven't read this series yet than you need to pick up Outlaw Kind Of Love (review below) while you are buying Nomad Kind Of Love. Give Maverick and June a chance to show you what it is like to be a Nomad in Python.

OUTLAW LOVE: RUTHLESS, POSSESSIVE, EXPLOSIVE...AND WORTH IT? 

Rachel Hargrove's sheltered life comes to a screeching halt when an unthinkable family betrayal turns her over to a savage motorcycle gang. Just when it seems her nightmare fate is sealed, a beautiful savior appears, the Vice President of the rival Prairie Devils MC. With her new protectors, Rachel faces a whole new life she never could've imagined...

Jack "Throttle" Shields never wanted an old lady. One look at the beautiful angel cowering in his enemy's clutches changes all that. Starting a war with the Raging Skulls MC to haul Rachel onto his bike and into his bed is just the beginning.

When Jack stakes a claim, he goes all in. War with the Skulls and a sinister Mayor is just the price of making Rachel his, and only his. But love invites blood and tragedy in an outlaw's life.

Just when it's looking up for his MC and his new woman, a savage attack blows the lid off everything. Revenge possessed Jack makes Rachel take a hard look at how far she's willing to go to surrender her heart.

Will she weather an outlaw's storm, or will the nightmare return - this time for good?

Note: this is a dark and gritty MC romance with language, violence, and love scenes as hard and raw as they come. Forbidden love is never easy!

Word count: 50,000+ word (226 print pages) motorcycle club romance novel.

My Review:

I loved Nicole Snow's take on MC life. This book kept my attention the whole way through. I am looking forward to reading Nomad Kind Of Love Book #2 in this series.

Rachel Hargrove is daughter to the new Mayor of Cassandra. When the unthinkable happens to Rachel she finds an unlikely savior in the MC biker Throttle. Rachel doesn't know what will become of her with Throttle but she figures it has to be better than life with the Raging Skulls.


Jack "Throttle" Shields is the Vice President of the Prairie Devils, Cassandra. While making an exchange with the Raging Skulls MC Jack encounters a distraught Rachel. Knowing that saving Rachel could start an all out war with the Raging Skulls but it is a risk that Jack is willing to take to do the right thing.


I can't give anymore away otherwise I will give the whole story away. I love a good dark and gritty MC romance and Outlaw Kind Of Love delivered. I look forward to reading many more books by Nicole Snow. On a scale from 1-10 I give Outlaw Kind Of Love a 10. It gave me everything I look for in an MC novel and then some. If you are looking for a HOT biker, a dark, gritty, and sexy story then Outlaw Kind Of Love is the MC book for you. I encourage everyone Adult 18+ to run out and pick yourself up a copy of Outlaw Kind Of Love. Let Throttle and Rachel take you on a wild ride.

*Added by the author and can be found on GoodReads

Blurb:

He’s a young, up and coming businessman with the keys to his family’s Italian wine enterprise. 

I’m a fine arts student, navigating life in the Big Apple, my pencil and sketchpad in hand. 

We meet. We fall in love. 

But it’s not that story.

Sometimes, by a rare gift of fate, two lives cross paths. And hey, if that happens to occur when staring at Michelangelo’s naked masterpiece, even better. We can tell our future children how a seventeen-foot tall marble guy named David brought us together.

But there’s always more to a relationship than its beginning and ever after. In life, there’s a whole lot of backstory. There are ex-fianc├ęs and hot roommates and family members whose advice continues, even beyond the grave.

When you say you love someone, it’s never just that one person you’re saying it to. And it’s never just that one moment that sets everything in motion.

There is always more that draws you in.

*(Draw Me In is a non-explicit New Adult romance, meaning no graphic sex scenes. But if you are in the mood for a little bit of laughter, a little bit of tears, and a whole lot of tears from all of that laughter, then this is the novel for you.)

My Review:

I loved reading Draw Me In. From the moment I read the blurb I knew I had to read this book. This book had me sobbing but I won't tell you when because you will have to discover that for yourself. Julie and Leo's love is a fun journey of discovery but also of heartache. With all great loves you can't have one without the other.

Julie Thornton is a art student with a love for Michelangelo's statue of David. Besides being a student Julie is also a mentoring teacher to teenagers and often takes these students to Art Museums in Italy to see other artists like Michelangelo. It is on one of these art excursions that changes Julie's life forever.

Leonardo "Leo" Carducci is a very successful VP at his family's Company Carducci Wines. Leo gives new meaning to tall, dark, and handsome. He hires Julie's best friend Ian (unbeknownst to them) to take some pictures of Leo for a magazine article that will be written about him. Leo and Julie discover what a truly small word it really is.

It is hard to say anything more without giving this story away and ruining it for everyone. It is so much more than boy meets girl and then they fall helplessly in love. It is about meeting ones soul mate, sacrifice, love, and friendship. On a scale from 1-10 I give Dram Me In a 10. I really enjoyed watching Julie and Leo's characters unfold and come to life. If you are looking for a story with great characters, laughs, love, and to know what it truly means to make a sacrifice then you need to run out and pick up a copy of Draw Me In. Leo and Julie are waiting to tell you their story.

ALLURE, New Adult Contemporary Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Lacey Weatherford.

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 18+ DUE TO MATURE THEMES AND SUBJECT MATTER. 

Tattoo artist by day, exotic dancer by night, 22 year old Six has been fighting his attraction for the girl of his dreams. Why? She's the high society daughter of the Mayor. Oh, and she's only 17. But what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...right? 

Seventeen-year-old Brooklyn Hall has had her eye on uber sexy tattoo artist, Six Jagger, for a while. There’s only one problem—she’s pretty sure he doesn’t even know she exists. A friend of her older brother, Six is five years older than her. Plus, there’s the pesky fact that he’s had a steady girlfriend for months. Still, even though she knows there’s no chance for her, she can’t seem to let the fantasy go.

Six Jagger has had a thing for Brooklyn Hall since the first time he laid eyes on her a year ago. However, after finding out her age, he wiped her off his list of possibilities. That should’ve been the end of it, but for some reason, he can’t stop watching and admiring her from afar. Happy that he’s successfully maintained his distance, all that changes on the night Brooklyn walks into Inked Edges, asking him for an illegal tattoo. After that, all his carefully constructed barriers come tumbling down, taking them on an explosive ride of lust, passion, and desire.

All’s well that ends well, right? Too bad that wasn’t the end, but merely the beginning…

My Review:

I bought a copy of Allure just before midnight last night. I started reading it just after and I stayed up all night reading it because I just couldn't put it down. I actually still haven't gone to be....lol. Lacey does not disappoint, her characters act their age which helps make the story believable and relatable.

Brooklyn Hall walks into Inked Edges determined to get a tattoo. Only one problem with her plan, she is only seventeen which means she needs a parents consent. Brooklyn's brother Tommy always told her if she wanted to get a tattoo she should go see Six at Inked Edges. She has had a crush on Six for a year now but Brooklyn doesn't even feel like she is a blip on his radar.

Trey "Six" Jagger was smitten with Brooklyn Hall the very first time he saw her outside his best friend Tommy's house, that is until he learned she was sixteen. Now a year later she walks into his place of business looking for him to give her an illegal tattoo. Now that Brooklyn has popped back into his life Six wants the chance to spend some time with her.

What starts off innocent at first turns into a wild ride of stolen moments and all consuming passion. There are only problems with their relationship; 1) Brooklyn is only seventeen and 2) If her father finds out there is no place in Las Vegas for Six to hide.

There is so much more to this story but anything else I could say would ruin this story for you. I am so looking forward to the next new book from Lacey Weatherford. If she keeps writing fantastic books like Allure than my wallet is going to be seriously hurting in the near future. On a scale from 1-10 I give Allure a resounding 10. If you are looking for a story with young love, SUPER HOT tattoo artist/exotic dancer, hint of danger, or even a little Romeo and Juliet type feel than Allure is the book for you. I encourage everyone Adult 18+ to run out and buy a copy of Allure. Let Six and Brooklyn tell you their side of the story before you decide their relationship is taboo.

Blurb:

Ryan Chase left Fairbanks, Alaska, when she was 21 years old to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Somewhere along the way her dreams of stardom crashed and burned, along with her life.

Thirteen years later she is forced to return to Fairbanks because her unforgiving and emotionally-distant father has suddenly died. Ryan seizes the opportunity to not only escape her abusive husband but to be able to attend her best friend's wedding. What could go wrong? It's only Fairbanks, Alaska... While wishing she was anywhere but her father's funeral and wake, Ryan is struck senseless by a stunning, drop-dead gorgeous man. Her thoughts turn carnal and she desperately wants to know him in every way—and position—possible. There's only one problem... 


He's the devil's spawn.

He's the one who marked her for life.
He's the kid she used to baby-sit.
And he's hotter than hell!

Shea Michaels has loved Ryan Chase for most of his life. After surviving an unspeakable childhood, he became a man of whom she could be proud ...if she ever came back. Now that she's returned, Shea pursues her with a vengeance, undaunted by the thirteen year age difference that Ryan uses as the shield between them.


Confusion, guilt and lust bombard Ryan as she battles the memories of the little boy she used to know while still being drawn to the heart-stopping man he has become.


***18+ due to explicit sexual situations, graphic language and intense adult themes.


My Review:

From the second I heard of this book I knew I had to read it. From the first paragraph I was hooked. Cory knows how to write a story that is not only HOT but impossible to put down. I loved the fact that Cory made Ryan older than Shea. A lot of stories usually have the man as the older more dominate character. It was such a nice change of pace for the older woman to not hold the power per se but to feel like she was still desirable at thirty four to a younger man of twenty one. I am now looking forward to reading Cory's next book Reviving Haven (out July 31, 2014) which has the same older woman younger man dynamic.

Ryan Chase wants to chase her dream of becoming an actress so at twenty one she leaves home for New York in hopes of becoming a star. All that glitters is not gold for Ryan and thirteen years later she not only comes home for her father's funeral and her best friend's wedding but to escape her abusive husband and plan her next move. Upon her return Ryan spies a tall HOT guy who she would like nothing better than to get in her bed that is until she comes to realize it is Shea the little boy she used to babysit.

Andrew Seamus "Shea" Michaels knew he wanted to marry Ryan since he was eight years old. Pretty much since the day he was born Shea has had to deal with an abusive drunken father. His only reprieve from the abuse came from spending time with Ryan's dad Riley, working in his garage. When Ryan left, Shea refused to go by that nick name that she had given him. After spiraling out of control for a few years Andrew decides to become the type of man that Ryan can be proud of. Nothing could prepare Andrew for the effect Ryan has on him with her return.

Both Ryan and Shea harbor their own dark secrets. Ryan is hiding the fact that she is married to a guy named Garrison and is hiding out while Shea is hiding the extent of his father's abuse. The instant chemistry of grown up Shea and Ryan is undeniable to almost everyone. Shea sets out to claim Ryan as his one and only but Ryan is having a hard time separating Shea the little boy with Shea the man. 

I am a Cory Cyr fan for life. There is so, so much I want to say about the struggles and obstacles these two characters go through but I feel it would ruin the story for everyone. Cory wrote such an AMAZING story, in my opinion. Her characters are believable and can draw real emotions from the reader. Cory doesn't sugar coat the bad things that happen to Shea and Ryan which makes for a more realistic story. I look forward to reading more books by Cory Cyr. On a scale from 1-10 I give Bite & Release a HUGE 20. This book packed such a punch (no pun intended) that my scale could not hold it....lol. I encourage everyone adult 18+ to run out and pick a copy of Bite & Release. If you are looking for a story with bite, HOT love story, conflict, and everything in between then you NEED to run and pick up this book. Open up your heart and let Shea and Ryan show you that love really can conquer all. Don't forget to look out for Reviving Haven out July 31, 2014.
