Synopsis: 

 

 

Breaking into a cemetery isn’t anything Dante Gabriel ever thought he’d do, but he has no choice. He must recover his father’s body so he can claim his estate. Help arrives from two unexpected sources, but their plan is interrupted.
 

 

Erin Hamilton’s best friend is a wolf shifter. The man she loves is a vampire. His father is a ghost. She can deal with all of that, but new worries have surfaced. The missing doctor has returned to the hospital, and his strange actions are disturbing…but not as disturbing as the odd dreams that begin to plague her. She finds comfort and love in Dante’s arms, even as he slowly begins to change. 

 

 

More secrets are revealed, and Dante and Erin recruit his cousin and her brother to help them find the missing women and discover the secrets of the Vampyre Texts, even as external forces work against them. But as Dante develops some unusual abilities and the darkness targeting him becomes more menacing, he must proceed, undaunted.

Synopsis



 

Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.


 

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.

My Review- 5 Stars!

Part 7:

Yes, yes, yes!! This series just keeps sucking me further in and I can’t get enough of it! I am so glad that Helen Hardt took a chance on the paranormal world. Her take on the paranormal scene is just absolutely fantastic! Blood Bond has been a fantastic series! The parts must be read in order for you to understand what is going on and trust me it is absolutely worth every second of your time! I devoured this part in about an hour and a half.

This book like the others starts where the previous one leaves off. Erin just found out that her best friend is a wolf shifter, say what! I love me some shifters! She can’t believe that everything around her is Paranormal and how this paranormal world around her is changing her life. Erin is still trying to figure out the disappearances at her work and the further into it she looks the more things that pop up.

Dante has had to break into a cemetery to find his father’s body. I held my breath while reading this section of the book because I was just waiting for something freaky to happen. Dante is getting very close to finding out the answers to his questions in my opinion, but one never knows when Helen Hardt will throw a curve ball your way and keep you second guessing.

The Queen keeps on getting into his head and he is trying to control it as best as possible as they seek for the answers that they so desperately need.

Erin is a character I have absolutely loved reading about and Dante is absolutely swoon worthy. If you have not started this series, but are seeing my review then you need to grab part 1 and get to it! All the way 5 star read!

Part 8:

Whattttt!! Part 8 has absolutely slayed me! This book like the last one, starts right where the previous one left off.

Dante and Erin still haven’t found what they are looking for but they are getting closer, at least they think that they are. They are now receiving help from Dante’s father that happens to be a ghost. Helen Hardt has really taken this paranormal world and made it her own and I am loving every single second of it!

Dante is still having visions and they are starting to affect him. He is doing everything in his power to keep them at bay. Erin is very scared for him, but she knows there could be more lying await for them.

This part has been one of my favorites of the season, the twists, the turns, the romance, the suspense, all of these together have made me such a fan of Helen Hardt’s take on this paranormal journey! I can’t wait for part 9!

Part 9:

I feel like Erin is finally putting some pieces of this puzzle together on her own now and I am loving it! This group we have come to know are trying to figure out information on the missing ladies. Bill is being Bill and trying to keep them from learning some of the information that they want to know about. I feel like every time they solve one thing or get close to solving something then three more things pop up. Like the previous parts we end on a cliffhanger, but Helen’s books are always worth the wait! I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Synopsis
When the lines are erased, the passion begins.
Lines define Tracy Rhodes’s life, and she has no say in the matter once she is sworn in as second-in-command of the free world. But the lines are crushed beneath the boots of her security team’s special advisor during a high-profile event in Vegas. The towering warrior with the haunting stare shatters her composure, invades her libido, and makes her yearn for things she shouldn’t. Sweaty, illicit things…with her body pinned beneath his… 
John Franzen, six and a half feet of rigid composure on the outside, is a lost man on the inside. What’s he doing here? A guy isn’t supposed to survive eleven years in Special Forces, especially after the crazy missions he’s been assigned. Accepting the security gig in Vegas is just a favor to a friend―a way to fill time that’s become too damn empty lately. Until the cushy “babysitting job” becomes the most treacherous mission of his life, and the politician he’s protecting becomes the woman in his bed. The lover beneath his bonds. The submissive he longs to claim forever. 
She’s destined for marble halls and an oval office, and he’s wired for jungles, dirt, and violence. Will her passion be enough to tame his demons? To claim the ultimate warrior as her own?

 


 


Can this be read as a standalone? 
The characters are introduced in other stories but this is definitely their story. So could be read without reading others in the series.

My Review- 5 Stars!!
Holy freakin’ smokes!! Way to save the best for last! Ruled is the 10th book of the Honor Bound Series and boy was it a scorching hot read! Give me a man in a uniform, who is alpha and demanding to boot and I will swoon! Captain John Franzen is one swoon worthy man!

John meets Tracy when he is asked to do a favor by protecting the Vice President! He does not count on Tracy winding up being a major part of shaking his world up though. He signs up for one thing and winds up going a completely different path once their lines have been blurred together. They both realize enemies are everywhere. Each has insecurities and issues they need to get past, but they are stronger together and can conquer anything thrown their way.

This book was so so good! I couldn’t stop turning those pages and I even found myself skipping major sentences with key facts to find out faster what was going to happen next. Just a tip, read it all don’t be a skipper like me, because I had to reread sections after I realized I had missed key things I needed to know! Angel Payne never disappoints! Another 5 star read by this goddess!

A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.

Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.

My Reviews for the Previous books in the series!

Book 1 Without Consequence- 5 Stars!

I am newer to MC books and let me tell you I want in. I want to go out today, buy a motorcycle and get into one of these clubs ASAP. When I read the blurb, I knew I had to read this book. It seemed really intense and it did not disappoint me at all. The authors wrote this book with such passion and it shines through on the pages. They both must have put in a lot of research into this lifestyle because it was so detailed and precise.

Without Consequence is the story of Drew and Ayda. I honestly fell in love with both of these characters. Drew is a badass, he is troubled and is just trying to figure out life with his MC. Ayda is trying to figure out life, but in a totally different way. She has a younger brother she is caring for and she is working herself into the ground. Despite that she has this don’t take no s$#! attitude and I absolutely love that about her.

Drew and Ayda wind up crossing paths because of her brother and a stunt that he tries to pull. This stunt is what leads Drew and Ayda to meeting. From that first meet up on I was on the edge of my seat. Drew tries to intimidate her and she isn’t having it. Drew isn’t used to anyone not being intimidated by him and it puts him on edge. Despite being not quite sure what to make one another there is this underlying attraction that they both feel towards one another so he makes her a deal. He won’t do anything with her brother, but she is to pay his debt.

These two feel each other out throughout her trips to The Hut and I enjoyed reading every second of their journey. There were moments I cringed, moments I laughed, and who doesn’t enjoy reading those steamier moments? Without Consequence is a great turn paging read that will hook you in from the beginning and leave you wanting more. I’m onto book 2!

 

Book 2 Without Mercy- 5 STARS!

Holy S*&! These two authors have literally slayed the MC world and I want more!!

Without Mercy is book two in the Babylon Series and it takes us on one crazy journey. In Without Mercy we’re also following Ayda and Drew’s relationship. I was ecstatic when I saw it was the same characters because I absolutely fell in love with them in the first book. Everyone loves a bad boy, and everyone loves them even more when they find their heroine.

Ayda has embraced the MC life at this point due to her relationship with Drew. Her brother Tate has also been along for the ride. She still has her struggles and remains relatable to those of us reading. Insecurities can sometimes get the best of us all and I liked that Ayda is still growing throughout this book. Her and Tate are finally starting to get used to the flow of the MC life though and each of them are learning that certain things must be kept from them and stay with just the hounds.

Drew has a lot of growth in this book and I really enjoyed watching his character grow. There were moments where I wanted to beat some sense into him and moments where he was completely swoon worthy. I think Drew will be my book boyfriend for a long time to come!

In this book you will read about lives being torn apart. You will read some suspenseful scenes, and go on an emotional journey that will have you flipping those pages as fast as you can. Victoria L. James and L J Stock are absolutely flawless when they write together and I can’t wait to continue on with the hounds.

 

Book 3 Without Truth- 5 Stars!!

OMG! This book was everything! I get nervous when I get three books into a series that is about the same couple. There was absolutely NO need to worry with this series though. Victoria L. James and L.J. Stock have knocked this series out of the park! I loved the first two books in this series and this read was absolutely no different. I was so curious to see how Ayda and Drew were going to be in book three and they truly do not disappoint. Each of these characters are growing in leaps and bounds and I adore them both as well as the other members of the MC. This one played with my emotions in a totally good way!

Without Truth takes us back into the world of Babylon and catches us up with Drew and Ayda after the events of Without Mercy. Some of those moments in the previous book were difficult for them to conquer and if you haven’t read the previous books then read them ASAP!!

I always think I have a book figured out, but not in this case. This book took me on such a journey and it is absolutely brilliantly written. The character development continues and I just can’t wait for number 4!

 

Book 4 Without Shame- 5 Star Review!

Without Shame is book number 4 in the Babylon series and it was so much more than I hoped it would be. This book absolutely slayed me. It packed such a fierce story that was full of emotion.

Drew is dealing with a lot in this book. His grief is at an all time high and he is being sucked back into that dark side of himself that was haunting him in the previous books. He is not acting like the lover Ayda has come to know and it is effecting everyone around them. The MC needs their leader and Ayda needs her man.

Ayda is as determined as ever to reach Drew in some capacity and bring him back into the light. She is just as much in love with him as she has always been and she is going to do whatever it takes to pull him out of this funk.

This story sucked me in deeply, and brought me on such an emotional rollercoaster with these characters. We even got to meet some new ones in this book! Victoria L. James and L.J. Stock are absolutely brilliant writers and together they created something absolutely AMAZING.

The Babylon MC series is definitely in my top 5 reads of 2018 and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Synopsis

Life being Layton Parks isn’t easy. Everything she touches seems to just fall apart at her fingertips – the air conditioning, the coffee maker, her ability to say no. A push over at heart, Layton does what she’s told, when she’s told. With two jobs bleeding her dry, she barely has time to register the rut she seems to have fallen in. Despite this, she’s okay with her life. It’s simple and uncomplicated.
 

 

 

 

Until it isn’t.  

 

 

 

 

Kane Thatcher doesn’t need any help in being broken because he’s already a walking mass of shattered shards. Unlike Layton, Kane is no one’s Yes Man. After a split decision three years previous turned his world upside down, he’s finally living independent, with no one to worry about but himself. 

 

 

 

 

Until he isn’t.  

 

 

 

 

He’s curious about her, and determined to make her stand up for herself and be who she wants to be. 

She’s a little scared of him, yet knows there’s a softer side of him hiding behind all the hate.  

 

 

Will they bring out the best in each other, or will outside obstacles force out the worst? Will hate win over love, or will they be able to navigate their way through it together?

My Review- 5 Stars!!

A.J. Love, a new to me author that I will definitely be keeping tabs on. I absolutely devoured this read. This book absolutely sucked me in on the first page. I just kept on page turning and woke up the next morning with a severe book hangover. It was absolutely worth it!

This book had so much emotion, one that catches your attention and makes you feel right along with the characters. I found my pulse racing and my heart pounding throughout this book. The characters had so much growth throughout this book and I enjoyed every second of watching them. The chemistry was amazing.

Layton and Kane were very realistic for me, they had flaws and room for growth just like an everyday person. One thing I love about a book is if I feel the characters are relatable and they sure were.

Layton lived a quiet life. She was kind of like a doormat for other people and she grew from that and became this cougar protecting what was hers. I loved her development. Kane was the silent and broody. Layton was his vice, and that broody side of his would slip away and he would help her.

There were moments that were a little tough to read, but A.J. Love delivered these scenes in a way where you could get through it and realize why the characters needed to share it. I absolutely recommend this book. It is absolutely fantastic.

Synopsis 


 

 

Brooke Devereaux has a lot she wants to escape from: a career she never asked for, a future she doesn’t want, and parents who’ve only ever seen her as a business opportunity. But in her desire to experience life, she quickly realizes she’s lacking in one very important skill: how to survive on her own. 


Former soldier Cole Timmons is an expert at running away. Whether it’s from his rural hometown, his alcoholic father, or painful memories, Cole doesn’t hesitate to leave. 


Until he encounters an out-of-place woman at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. The wealthy “princess” couldn’t be more different from the country loner, and the pair get off to a rocky, misadventurous start.


But sometimes exteriors are armors meant to deceive. Sometimes what’s beneath reveals more than anyone ever realized. Sometimes, in order to stop running away, a person simply needs to find something to run toward.


****

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

Meet the Author
 
Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. They learned a ton about each other through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly. They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
 

My Review- 5 Country Stars!!

Everyone needs Misadventures with a Country Boy in their life! What a fantastic read!

Cole and Brooke were a pleasure to read about. Cole runs into Brooke at a gas station. She is without a car and in need of help. Cole being the charming man he is offers her a rid and we go on an amazing journey with these two characters.

These two characters are definitely in my top five of the misadventure series couples. They both are running from the things going on in their lives and wind up finding things they weren’t even looking for. I love a fast read and this was like the other Misadventures in that way. I devoured it in a few hours and loved every single second of it.

I discovered Elizabeth Hayley from their first Misadventure and I absolutely adore them. These two women are absolutely fantastic writers and I loved their first Misadventure. This Misadventure was an absolutely amazing addition to this wonderful series and it is a must read.
