I’m no Prince Charming.
Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I’m also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, “The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet.” Apparently, I’m a legend.
Am I surprised? Hell, no. It’s a reputation I’ve earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune . . . and spent every damn day since pretending I don’t regret it.
Now fate’s dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it’s a second chance for me—for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can’t give Piper a future.
Because there’s a difference between a legend and a fairy tale...
Only one of them ends happily ever after.

EXCERPT:

Watching Landon Cox on stage from forty feet away had been bad enough. But here, now, close enough to touch, I was jolted by the power of his presence.
Still shirtless and sweating after an intense performance, my eyes danced over the rippling muscles rising from beneath the inked skin of Landon’s naked torso, his broad shoulders tapering to slim hips, perfect V cuts forming an arrow pointing south.
Vitality seeping from every pore.
My gaze was drawn inexorably upward. Blond hair a damp mess, the faintest trace of stubble darkening a jawline that could have been cut from marble. A face so symmetrical, so severely beautiful, it would take even the most talented sculptor a lifetime to get right.
Landon Cox was a fantasy in the flesh.
I’d imagined this very moment dozens—no, hundreds—of times. But now that the moment was here, Landon and I, alone in a room again after all these years, I had nothing.
In a blink, Landon’s expression wavered. His winged brows, three shades darker than the hair sweeping across his forehead, pulled together. Eyes like hot coals burning into me.
As if the sight of me caused him pain.
I tore my gaze away from his face, but it only landed on the swaths of ink covering his chest and extending over his arms. My mouth watered at the sight. I wanted to trace every tattoo with my tongue, every slash and swirl and stripe. After six years, how would Landon taste?
Like regret, I realized with a sickening thud. Because regret was all that remained of what we’d once shared.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

As a fan of rock star romances I would consider Ms. Leigh one of the best in her crafting of the Nothing But Trouble series as it packs an emotional punch through its engaging characters and raw and gritty depiction of fame.  With each installment we become more invested in the lives of these flawed musicians and root for them every step of the way.  In this newest installment two people get a second chance to find the HEA that alluded them six years ago, while dealing with new pain over an injury that could end everything for the hero.

Landon Cox grew up in the foster care system, the son of addicted parents, always keeping his heart hidden as he never thought he’d be worthy of a family. Finding a family of his own changes his life irrevocably though, opening his heart to love but breaking it too after a horrible tragedy sent him running from the pain.  He luckily stumbled across his bandmates and they became their own kind of family, one that embraced their individual pain while creating new problems associated with fame and fortune.  At a crossroads, Landon found the sweet and picture perfect Piper and for two months his life was happy and fulfilling until devotion to his band had him leaving her behind.  He never forgot her though.  Each one-night stand was an attempt to excise her from his soul, but he could never replace her.  An unexpected reunion has him doing all he can to claim her, revisiting his past and sharing his pain, in an attempt to be worthy of her.  Just when they seem on the path to HEA, his anger and self-judgment lead to tragedy and could very well end the career that has defined him and given him self-worth.  Landon’s the quintessential rock star in both looks and attitude.  He’s a bit cocky, a bit arrogant, but also sexy and charming.  It’s a delicious mask hiding the raw pain of a past that won’t ever let go of him as he continues to carry guilt over something not his fault.  He desperately wanted to get Piper back in his life and the moments of joy and contentment seen when they were together were immensely satisfying.  It was a difficult recovery for him, both physically and emotionally, but one that pulled me in wholeheartedly. It had me cheering him on as he was a man deserving of love and happiness after all the pain he dealt with throughout his life.

Piper Hastings’s childhood was also rough as the lies surrounding her birth had her father treating her and her mother with indifference.  It was abuse through subtle hatred and left both women with self-esteem issues that affect them still. Growing up Piper tried in vain to earn her father’s love by being the perfect daughter, the top of her class and beloved by all.  Living up to that perfect mold was difficult though and had her always doubting her appeal.  Finding Landon she thought she finally found HEA.  He loved her unconditionally, loved her perfectly coiffed but messy even more in a romance that was sweet and sensual.  Leaving her without a word broke her heart and once again left her self-esteem in shambles with her turning towards a man clearly not in love with her.  She now just wants to live a safe life, one where she keeps her heart hidden.  Being around Landon again makes it difficult to keep her heart indifferent as he slowly works his way back into her heart and soul as their romance goes down a rocky road to HEA.  Piper’s an immensely appealing heroine, hard working, and caring despite all the bruises inflicted on her heart. It’s clear she longs to be with him but her past has taught her to be cautious, and despite their erotically-charged encounters, there’s a sense of her holding back at times.  Being with him has her no longer chasing after someone else’s idea of perfection, she now defines herself in her own terms and I applauded her finally becoming empowered.

Second chance romances make for powerful reads as there’s already a strong foundation for the main couple to build on.  Ms. Leigh built a memorable foundation for Piper and Landon, one of joy but also heartbreak, as young love was torn asunder.  They’re both older and wiser now and it makes their journey even more of a gut-punch as the past is revealed along with new issues that made them even more vulnerable.  Landon’s a delicious hero, sweet and sexy, whose addictions are growing stronger.  It had me aching for him as he hit rock bottom before rising back up in a very satisfying conclusion.  Piper’s a good support for him, putting aside her own pain when he needs her most.  They’re a crackling couple in scenes both scorching and sentimental as they easily picked up where they left off.  I enjoyed the glimpses we got of the other members of Nothing But Trouble too.  I enjoyed their brotherly banter and their gritty and exhilarating moments on stage that pulled me on stage beside them.  As the story progressed, things changed dramatically for both Piper and Landon, forcing them into seeing themselves in a much different light.  The epilogue was near perfect and gave me all sorts of warm fuzzies that put an exclamation point to all that came before.  This series continues to shine with characters that I truly care about as romance is beautifully balanced with intense emotions that pull at reader’s heartstrings.  Though this book can be read on its own, this series is made richer by reading each installment and growing closer to each of these unforgettable bandmates.

My rating for this is an A.

Book Tour for Sloe Screw by Nazarea Andrews (REVIEW)


Two people with pasts they’re trying to move on from take center stage as a burgeoning couple in an unexpected romance.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Sloe Screw by Nazarea Andrews, along with my impressions of it, then add this third installment in the River Street Bar series to your bookshelf!

Vivian Fitzpatrick is a big dreams girl stuck in a small town.  She likes her job, and she adores her friends, but there’s a tiny part of her that still wants adventure. Wants all the unfulfilled dreams to come true. She still wants to base jump and skydive and do everything her ex-boyfriend said she was too chicken-shit to do.
Which is probably how she ends up moonlighting for a phone sex line.
Matteo Soto is just trying to figure out how to live again.
A bomb in Iraq left half his unit dead, and Matteo broken. He puts on a good act--the rookie at RCPD, taking care of his dead best friend’s family. But it feels too much like going through the motions, too much like marking time.
He needs a reason to get up in the morning.
She needs to feel alive.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

There’s a lot to like about this contemporary small town romance of moving on from the past to make the kind of life you want.  From its appealing main couple to its colorful cast of secondary characters, readers will find themselves drawn to this slow-burn romance that’s familiar but still satisfying.

Vivian Fitzpatrick thought she was once in love and sacrificed the opportunity of a lifetime for the man who said he loved her.  It was a crushing blow once he dumped her and caused her to go off the rails for awhile before she ultimately made her way back.  Vivian once valued adventure but after the judgments of her ex she more than made up for lost time through drinking, one night stands, and a stint as a phone sex operator.  While all of these desperate and self-destructive actions disappointed me, they all led her to Matteo and a romance full of the healing power of love.  On a whole, Vivian was a likable heroine stunned by fate whose flaws were so clearly on display. Her actions, her responses weren’t anything to set her apart from others but her journey of empowerment kept me cheering her on.

Matteo Soto has been betrayed by his past too as he ends up back home due to PTSD issues where he gets the chance to gain a bit of perspective when it comes to his reasons for taking care of a dead soldier’s family.  He’s not looking for anything other than a bit of peace, the chance to stop the guilt that’s been driving him.  What he finds instead is a woman unlike any he’s known before, a wild child whose connection to him is crackling.  Matteo’s a delicious hero who balances angst with sexiness to perfection to make him the highlight of this story for me.

This is an enjoyable read from start to finish with an appealing hero and a heroine who’s full of imperfections, but still worth rooting for.  Theirs is a sensual connection that starts out slowly, pulling me in every step of the way to fully immerse me in their coupling.  Surrounding this likable main couple was a cast of supportive secondary characters, friends who felt more like family as the story progressed.  While this book isn’t a groundbreaking one, it is another entertaining addition to the River Street Bar series that will bring hours of delight to readers.

My rating for this is a B.

Book Tour for The Devil Don’t Sleep by Janine Infante Bosco (Review & GIVEAWAY)


It’s an emotional journey of second chances found amongst the pages of this sexy and suspenseful thrill ride that will keep readers on edge from the first page to the last.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of The Devil Don’t Sleep by Janine Infante Bosco, along with my impressions of it, then add it to your bookshelf.  In honor of this next installment in the Satan’s Knights MC series make sure to fill out the form below for the chance to win a $25 Amazon GC along with a signed print copy of this book too!

Sometimes we must let go of what was, appreciate what remains and fearlessly embrace what comes next.
Sebastian “Bas”
Born to a family of outlaws, I was destined to ride with, the Satan’s Knights MC. With mayhem, and havoc in my blood and chaos living deep in my soul, I learned the Devil don't sleep. You never hear him creeping and he often comes disguised as everything you ever wanted.
I was just a teenager when she first showed, masquerading as the girl of my dreams. A whiskey shootin' spitfire who knocked me on my ass and helped me turn the town upside down. The girl who stole my heart with her smile and never gave it back.
The same bitch who ruined me and turned my blood to ice.
It's been six years since I turned my back on Mac, my family and my club. I've pushed her to the back of my head, wrote everyone off and damned the Kentucky charter to Hell. But, where God built a church, the Devil built a chapel.
Now, her life is on the line and it's clear I'm still a sucker for her gorgeous chaos because I'm the one riding to her rescue.
Mackenzie “Mac”
I often dreamed of what it would be like to stare into Bas' blue eyes again. To hear his raspy voice, whisper his love for me and feel his strong arms around me. After all, it's always been in his embrace that I felt the safest.
In my dreams, he abolishes my sins and forgives me for breaking both our hearts. But this is no dream.
I'm running from a nightmare and the one running with me, looks at me with enough anger to burn the world to ash. Once upon a time, we were in love.
Once upon a time, it was us against the world.
Once upon a time, he didn't look at me and see the Devil.
If only he knew the truth. If only he knew the Devil was a broken angel with tattered wings.
An angel who sacrificed her heart and soul for him.

EXCERPT:

“I have to swing by my apartment.”
“Did something happen?”
“Maybe.”
Another vague answer.
However, he looks like he’s about to lose his shit and so, I decided not to argue. I also fasten my fucking seat belt. Five minutes later we pull in front of an oversized apartment complex. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before but then again, a lot of New York is like nowhere else. Still, I can’t help but stare, taking in the people hanging around the streetlamps and the fire escapes outside every window.
Bas kills the engine on the truck and turns to me, pointing towards the glovebox.
“Lock the doors and do not get out of the car,” he warns. “If I’m not back in ten minutes, use my phone to call Jack and tell him to come to get you from my apartment. There’s a piece in the glovebox if anyone fucks with you, don’t hesitate to use it.”
Now, any sane woman would be scared.
I wasn’t.
In fact, I’m almost certain we’ve had some variation of this conversation before. Instead of calling Jack, it was Mooney I was ordered to call and there was a piece in the glovebox then too. A brand new forty-five if I remember correctly.
“Ten minutes,” he reiterates as he gets out of the truck and slams the door. My eyes follow him down the walkway leading to the complex until he disappears inside. Sitting there, I start to fidget and move to turn on the radio. Remembering the car was off, I reach over the console to turn the key in the ignition but pause when I spot his phone.
Biting my lip, I lean back in my seat and try to tame my curiosity. I’ve never been the girl who looks at someone’s phone. When we were together, I trusted Bas completely and with Junior, I just didn’t give a fuck. I felt it was an invasion of privacy and a desperate move. However, I had zero fucks left to give and desperation was now my middle name. Taking the phone, I swipe at the screen only for karma to hit and ask me for a passcode.
So much for desperation and curiosity.
Putting the phone back, I lean back again and stare out the window. In the next five minutes, I witness a couple having sex against a wall and a drug deal. Bas’ neighbors were colorful for lack of better words. I might not have been living it up in Kentucky, but neither was he. Soulmates through and through, we were both slumming it.
Another five minutes pass before I lose my patience and start to panic. The instructions Bas gave me flee my mind and I grab the keys before opening my door. As I start for the building, I scan the curious stares directed at me and hear the catcalls. Ignoring both, I enter the lobby and realize I have no idea what apartment is his.
As I turn to leave, out of the corner of my eye I spot rows of mailboxes lining a wall. Each mailbox appoints a last name to an apartment number. Scanning name after name, I find Bas’ and match it to his number. I take the stairs, making my way to his floor. Reaching the landing, I round the corner and walk the narrow hallway to his apartment.
Standing in front of the door, I hear his muffled voice and notice it’s slightly ajar. Not knowing what I might find on the other side, I freeze and debate on turning around.
Why is it we’re always drawn to the things that have the ability to ruin us?
Why do we never listen to our instincts?
Turn around, Mac.
Go back to the car.
I should’ve walked away.
I should’ve stayed in the car and counted the fire escapes on the building.
Instead, I push the door open and stare in horror as Bas stands at the foot of his bed in front of a naked woman kneeling on the edge of the bed, unbuckling his belt while she sucks on his neck. The bile rises in my throat as the woman lifts her eyes to mine. Her mouth doesn’t let up. If anything, she sucks harder, leaving her mark.
On him and on me.
He speaks but I can’t make out what he says over the ringing in my ears.
Lunging forward, I grab the back of his shirt and twist it in my fist, pulling him out of her reach.
“You son of a bitch!”
Red.
It’s all I see.
Until he turns around and then all I see is blue.
His blue eyes hold mine as he wraps his hands around my wrists.
“Stop,” he shouts.
“Stop?” I shriek. “That’s what you say?”
“It’s her,” the naked bitch says behind him.
“Shut the fuck up, Dori,” Bas growls, tightening his hold on my flailing wrists.
“Get your fucking hands off me,” I holler.
“Calm down and I will,” he grinds out.
Nostrils flaring, I pull away with all my might causing me to stumble backward. Balancing myself, I glare at him as I take a step away from him.
“Was this your plan all along?”
“If you would shut the fuck up, I’ll explain—“
“Explain?” I screech. “I should let you explain yourself?” I ask incredulously. “All I’ve asked of you is for a chance to fucking explain myself, but you don’t give a fuck. You’re blinded by hate and the only thing you give a damn about is revenge. You want to hurt me as badly as I hurt you. Isn’t that right?” I spat. “That was your plan wasn’t it? Take Ryder to Jack’s and make me think I will finally get my chance to tell my side of the story. The trip down memory lane was a real nice touch. Leaving me in the car while you got your dick sucked—not so much.”
“That’s not what fucking happened,” he roars, reaching to grab my wrist again.
Taking another step back, I glance behind him at the woman staring between us.
God forgive me, but she’s not even pretty.
“Fuck you,” she hisses.
“Oh, did I say that out loud?” I mock before slicing my eyes back to Bas. “We’re finally even.”

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

Ms. Bosco is a master when it comes to MC romances courtesy of her multi-layered storytelling, juggling of numerous emotionally engaging storylines and a colorful and eclectic cast of characters who have become family.  This latest installment is once again fueled by danger and revenge but is more focused on the second chance romance of a dynamic duo separated by fate trying to put past hurts behind them to make a future.  Add in the Club President’s continuing mental health issues and you have a story that pulled at my heartstrings, played with my emotions, before rewarding me with a satisfying conclusion that still managed to leave me with a sense of foreboding.

Sebastian Turner grew up in the MC world with a father who was President of his Club and who instilled a sense of honor in Bas that made him a delicious hero who I was immensely drawn to.  His mother’s a strong-willed woman who enjoys being the Club’s mama, but she’s a bit heartless too and has always treated Bas as if he wasn’t ever good enough.  The best part of being in his Club though was his romance with Mackenzie.  They were the perfect match, loving like nothing could ever go wrong...until it did.  A five-year prison term to save the honor of his Club took him away from Mac and when he returned even bigger changes had occurred that devastated him and had him leaving his heart and soul behind.  It was a betrayal that’s eaten at him every day since he left, had him desperately trying to erase her from his soul, but when danger befalls her he rushes to her rescue despite the anger still weighing on him.  A road trip back to the Satan’s Knights leaves lots of time for talk as well as getting to know Mac’s young son Ryder.  Rehashing past hurts leads to lots of pain, but also opens his eyes to truths that hurt him even more as the anger he’s held all these years was misplaced.  Keeping her safe gives him a second chance to live the life he always dreamed of while in jail, gives him a chance to be the kind of honorable father his own parent was, and watching all the years of anger washed away made for an empowering story full of heartwarming words and deeds.  Bas is a sexy biker who early on tries to keep himself isolated from Mac, but she and Ryder slowly burrow their way back into his heart.  Reserved banter soon became more playful, more sensual, as Mac and Ryder pulled at Bas’s heartstrings.  Bas wore his heart on his sleeve, was very open about his anger and guilt, and it endeared him to me as he beautifully balanced a tough guy exterior with a warm and caring nature inside that especially made me smile in his scenes with Ryder.  On a whole he’s yet another of the Satan’s Knights that you can’t help but fall for, even when their drawing blood from their enemies.

Mac was once a carefree young girl full of energy and wildness, happy to be Bas’s girl as they set their hometown on fire.  They were a perfect match and their love shown through every action.  Mac was more than willing to wait for Bas to return home from prison but fate had other ideas.  Bas’s brother and mother had their own agenda for the Club and unfortunately Mac got caught up in the war and ended up in hell.  She endured her own prison sentence, losing herself along the way, but was rewarded by the birth of her son whose smile was infectious.  While she’s always longed for Bas’s return, she’s angry too and doesn’t want to accept his offer of safety.  But love for Ryder has her making a deal with the devil by returning to Brooklyn and the promised safety of the Satan’s Knights.  Her time with Bas is full of talking, full of dealing with past hurts, but it also allows her time to find herself again.  Her years without Bas led to a loss of self and I applauded her finally sticking up for herself here.  The only thing that frustrated me about Mac was her not revealing her own truth long ago.  Both her and Bas could’ve had their HEA long ago had she just spoken up.  Despite that though I still found Mac a likable heroine who adored her son and was a strong support to Bas once they dealt with the issues overshadowing their crackling connection.

This was an engaging story from its powerful prologue that heartbreakingly depicted Bas’s pain to its cheer-worthy ending that reminded readers why you want to be “Property of Parrish”.  It was a slow burn of forgiveness and acceptance for Bas and Mac with their sweet and sexy journey holding me captive.  Heartfelt talks were perfectly balanced with scorching encounters that were reminiscent of their younger, wilder days.  Their interactions were full of anger early on but as the story progressed their love and devotion had clearly come back to life...as had they.  I don’t normally care for children in romances but Ryder was utterly delightful.  He easily brought out Bas’s paternal side and I was charmed by Ryder becoming a mini-me.  The best part of the story though, the part that permeates every installment of this series, is the brotherhood. These men would literally die for each other, almost have a time or two, and that unwavering support is the heart and soul of this series.  The banter amongst these rough around the edges bikers is playful at times, a bit crass too, but it always makes me smile.  Their support of each other comes from Jack Parrish who sees every biker, every person those biker’s claim, as a family member.  He would sacrifice everything for this self-made family and the gruff President’s actions brought a tear to my eye.  He’s clearly struggling with his own demons in this story and it’s a heartbreaking battle that he’s waging with himself that leaves me full of foreboding while waiting for the next installment in this series.

My rating for this is an A-
