Holy Hell I loved this book!  Crystal Spears is one of my go to writers for MC biker madness.  Check out my review and excellent giveaway below.

ZZ on the cover of Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears

Withstanding Me Synopsis
While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.
Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.

Withstanding Me (Breakneck, #2)Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. No cliffhanger and can be read as a standalone. I recommend reading Seize Me (book #1) so you can fully understand the background of each character. Spoiler-free review.  4.5 – 5.0 stars!

Once again I understand why Crystal Spears in on my auto download list.  This woman writes some amazing biker Kindle Crack.  I have to give her huge props for the letter she included to readers about Withstanding Me (book #2). She spells it out for you. Spears grew up around bikers and her stories are raw.  Biker’s don’t fart glitter and walk around baking cupcakes.  There is a lot of sex, explicit language, drugs and violence. With that said….I knew what I was getting into and loved Withstanding Me.

I had to Google a picture of a Jacobs Ladder while reading this book.  I got the whole full effect thing from a few interesting pictures.  Ouch???  Withstanding Me is one hell of a roller coaster (actually motorcycle ride) primarily focusing on ZZ & Apple.  I loved ZZ – such a crazy ass biker with a heart of gold.  Apple (who has the best last name ever) was a great character as well. I don’t want to spoil it for you but this book is loaded with all kinds of twists and turns with the Russian mob, pregnancy, muffler bunnies and more.

Seize Me fans– Braxx & Winter are fully integrated into Withstanding Me (which I was very happy about).  If you read Cage by Harper Sloan already you already know there is a *HUGE* Breakneck surprise. I love Sloan’s books as well.

Don’t miss this fine piece of MC Kindle Crack.  I can’t wait for Crystal Spears next book…I am such a fan girl.

Cover Reveal - Just One Week by Stacey Lynn

Just One Week by Stacey Lynn will release in about four weeks on 10/24. I *live* for rock star romances and this book looks hot. I have a huge lady boner for drummers. Just One Song (book #1) also got a rockin new cover which can be viewed at the end of this post. I just added to be TBR list.

Just One Week (book #2)  - release date: 10/24
Author: Stacey Lynn
Two years ago, Mia had everything she thought she wanted. She loved her job, and her best friend Nicole was finally recovering from losing her family in a car accident. When they met rock star Zack Walters and given backstage pages for his concert in their hometown of Minneapolis, Mia had no idea she would get involved with the band’s drummer, Chase Harper. It was simple, fun, and exactly what Mia liked best – no strings attached.
Then Chase decided to change the rules and Mia did what she’s always done best: she ran.
Now she’s on her way to Los Angeles to help Nicole get ready for her wedding to Zack. The one thing she’s not looking forward to is seeing Chase again. With his sculpted muscles, strong hands and dark gray eyes that seem to know everything she’s thinking – Chase has the ability to make her forget. He also has the power to make her feel, something Mia refuses to let happen.
When everything around Mia’s life begins to crumble, and she keeps all of her secrets tucked close and hidden away, Chase is the one who steps in to help.
Because he has decided that he isn’t letting her go again. Not until she finally admits she’s his.

Just One Week Excerpt:
Chase’s POV
I smile into her neck when I feel her pulse quicken a little bit.
“Chase?” Her quiet voice sounds a little bit dry and really tired.
I slowly flick my tongue out and lick her neck and trail soft kisses down to her collarbone. My hand on her hip squeezes slightly, pulling her back into me so she can feel how much I want her.
Damn it, I just want her. All of her.
“What is it, babe?” I whisper into her throat when I realize she’s smiling a little bit and not moving away from me at all. In fact, I think she may have just relaxed into me a little bit more. “What do you need?”
I pull away from her slightly so I can look into her sleepy blue eyes. Her hair is a little messed up and her eyes are barely open, but I can still see that she wants me. Please, I plead with my eyes, don’t tell me you need a glass of water. Don’t tell me you want me to get the hell out of here.
But she doesn’t say any of those things. She just smiles and quietly, so quietly I almost ask her to repeat herself she simply says, “You.”
It’s all I need to hear. If she wants me, I’ll give her all of me. Every last piece of my body, my heart, and my soul. Anything she wants of mine is hers, I just don’t want her to fucking stomp all over it and give back pieces of me, leftover and broken, when she’s through with me.

With a devilish grin, I adjust her so she’s lying below me. “I’m all yours, babe.”

Just One Song just got a new cover!  Check it out.

“Can’t fix that, can fix this.”
He leans down, and his lips are on mine before I can protest. My mouth opens as a strangled gasp leaves it. My body flinches, and a flood of warmth travels through my veins, making my entire body feel like it’s on fire. I shudder as he presses his mouth harder against mine. His lips are soft and full, his body large and firm as he presses himself against me. My hands are limp beside me, I can’t move, I’m like a rag doll in his arms. His tongue finds mine, and fireworks explode in my head, I’m almost sure I see stars. Then suddenly, my hands come to life, and I thrust them into his hair, tugging him closer. My mouth is devouring his, my tongue dancing with his in hungry, angry strokes. He growls, and presses a hand to my lower back, pressing my body up against his hard, aching erection. I untangle one of my hands from his hair, and run it down his firm back. I slip it under his shirt, and feel his hot, hard skin. It’s taut, and his muscles bunch as I slide my fingers up, feeling every inch of his muscled flesh.
Then his mouth is off mine, and I’m stumbling backwards. He’s reeling backwards just as quickly, his eyes confused. He’s panting so heavily I can see his chest rising and falling rapidly. His eyes are wild, like he’s just made a huge mistake. I press my fingers to my swollen lips, did that just happen? Did Spike just…kiss me? I’ve never been kissed like that in my entire life, not once. That kiss, it was a kiss of passion. It was real, beautiful, gut wrenching, soul shattering…but mostly, it was mind fucking. What did it mean? Spike’s fists are clenched, and his eyes are a mix of anger and lust.
“Now we’re even. Get on the bike,” he rasps.

(unedited - subject to change)
He walked out into the hot summer air and breathed in deeply. It had been so long since he could breathe freely. His shoes crunched across the gravel in the parking lot and he thought of her. It’s all her fault I have lost these past five years of his life. She took his freedom away. His rage built with every step he took as he approached the cab that was waiting for him. He hated these disgusting things but he did not want anyone to know he was back.
He carried himself with a refined grace of the social elite. He stood just over six foot two inches with broad shoulders, dark wavy hair, piercing blue eyes and chiseled features. He had a scar that ran about an inch long from the outer edge of his left eyebrow and continued down below his eye. A souvenir courtesy of his father he saw every time he looked into the mirror, it didn’t detract from his beauty, and in fact it had the opposite effect. It added a dangerous flare to him that women found irresistible. He could have his pick of any woman at any time. He loved the power he had over them.
After giving the driver his address he sat back and watched the city go by trying to keep his mind off of her. He was trying to focus on what had changed and what had stayed the same, anything to distract his thoughts from her. He was thankful that he had enough money so he could ride out this whole unfortunate situation without losing everything. He chuckled to himself at the knowledge that she would never know what was coming for her. He smiled for the first time since he walked out in the heat.
He unlocked the front door and strode into his home, his castle. Everything was as it had been the last time he was there all those years ago. This was good because he didn’t want to take the time to contact the caretaker if he had done anything wrong. He had a limited time to do what he needed to do before heading to the east coast.
He climbed the stairs and went to the secret room that he had built himself behind the master bedroom closet and held his breath before entering, scared that someone might have found it. But if they had found it things would be quite different now. It was a small room, only twenty-five square feet with the walls covered with pictures of his women. One of the walls had what he considered miscellaneous “tools” he liked to use on his women, while another whole wall was dedicated floor to ceiling to women that he had killed. It showed them in all different scenarios from being out in public to in their own homes. He paused for a moment remembering raping and killing each and every one of them. As always it brought a calm over him to remember them. He lightly kissed each one before he slowly turned his attention to the other pictures on a wall of their own. This wall belonged solely to her, the one that got away. It still angered him that he was unable to finish what he had started.
He crossed to his favorites of her. One night while she slept he had snuck into her home and took a picture of her sleeping. She had a smile on her face; he liked to think she was dreaming of him. While she slept he had hid the cameras and bugs in her home. It was daring doing that while she was their but he needed the extra thrill of possibly being caught. He closed his eyes remembering going back up to her bedroom for one last look. It had taken everything he had not to take her then but there are times when it makes it better to wait. He moved to absolute favorite picture of her, the one that made him hard every time. She was naked and tied to her bed just before she woke up. It was the moment before her eyes opened and she figured out what was going on. The calm before the storm. A smile spreads across his face. He unzipped his pants aching for the release and started jerking off to the thought of doing it to her again, but not being interrupted. This time he would make sure he killed her while he was coming inside of her. He threw back his head and screamed her name as he came.

Jenny has always wanted a fairytale life: the perfect house, her own Prince Charming and the wedding to go with it.

After a five year engagement Jenny and her fiancé Rich are counting down to the "Big Day"...

And lets not forget one hell of a Hen Party For Jenny her life as the perfect wife is all she has ever wanted but secrets are never far away...

Will Jenny make it to her own fairytale wedding...

All will be revealed in "Veiled"

EXCERPT from Veiled

 I made a speech prior to booking the wedding date that there would be no sex the week be-fore we got married. I wanted our wedding night to be special. Now, I think I will be strug-gling with this decision. I plan to make sure I get plenty before our wedding weeks begins. I am wearing Rich's favorite little black halter dress that barely covers my bum and shows just enough of my cheeks to drive him wild. He loves it. I have been a little bit naughty. Okay, very naughty. I am not wearing underwear and have added my black stilettos. Perfect. My hair is down, exactly the way he likes it, and no makeup. This is how my baby likes to see me.

    "Honey, I'm home," Rich yells as he comes through the door, looking all hot and sweaty from his run. He always goes for a three to five mile run after work. He is a fitness freak some-times, so I would love for him to take a day off from running once in a while.
     "Hi," I say leaning against the doorway in a suggestive manner, my arm above my head in the full-on come and get me pose. "Oh. Wow, are you trying to kill me, Jen?" He winks. "Never." I giggle, hoping I am killing him. I plan to make that man work his ass off after dinner. "Quick shower and I am all yours, baby girl," he says, placing a little peck on my lips before smacking my bum and running up the stairs. Rich began calling me baby girl the second time we saw each other. I can't help but blush when he says it, even after all this time together. I sit myself on a bar stool in the kitchen and wait for him. He is only gone for five minutes be-cause he takes quick showers when I am not with him. If I didn't have a nice meal planned, I would join him. I might take him for another one later. "I am back, baby girl," Rich announces as he walks into the kitchen wearing only black trousers. His bare chest on full display and his perfect back sparkling from the water that is left on him. His hair is also wet. He looks so fuckable. Food first. We need to eat first I try to convince myself.

His voice was low and husky, a sexy rasp in her ear—an auditory caress no less powerful than the feel of his hands on her skin the day before. "Did I have clothes on?"

BLOG TOUR Review & Giveaway - Perfect Regret by A. Meredith Walters 5 Stars

I love A. Meredith Walters.  Once again she manged to keep me up all night reading her latest book - Perfect Regret (Bad Rep #2).  I was honored to get an advanced review copy prior to the release a couple of days ago.  Add this series to your TBR.  Check out my spoiler free review as well as an excerpt, synopsis and author giveaway below.  Happy reading.  FIVE Kindle Crack worthy stars!


Riley Walker makes all the right decisions and knows exactly where her life is headed.

Riley Walker does not make mistakes.

Riley Walker certainly doesn’t make spontaneous decisions.

But then Riley Walker gets dumped.

Spectacularly, gut-wrenching, stomp all over her heart dumped. And she is feeling more than a little angry. And a whole lot bitter. And suddenly the girl who has always done everything right feels like doing something completely wrong.

Garrett Bellows, lead guitarist for the local band, Generation Rejects, is going through life without a plan. Trying not to think past the next gig or the next party, he has worked hard to not become too attached to anyone or anything. So he is shocked to find himself drawn to the snarky girl with a chip on her shoulder. She pisses him off and puts him down. He knows she’s nothing more than a self-entitled college brat who thinks she’s better than the townie boy without a future.

Alcohol and a hefty dose of lust leads to a night both Riley and Garrett immediately regret. Her embarrassment, his pride and the weight of rumors and misconceptions convince Riley and Garrett that their one-time indiscretion will never be repeated. Particularly when their harshest critics are each other.

But how do you reconcile a head that wants to let go with a heart that keeps holding on?

And what happens when your biggest regret begins to seem almost perfect?

Perfect Regret (Bad Rep, #2)Perfect Regret by A. Meredith Walters

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free. This book does not end with a cliffhanger. This book can be considered a stand-alone but I would highly recommend reading Bad Rep (book# 1). NO cliffhanger. I have no regrets reading this one….4.5 - 5 stars!

Riley Walker is perfect.
Riley Walker has a life plan.
Riley Walker gets dumped by her boyfriend.
Riley Walker is now a total bitch.

After her boyfriend breaks up with her, Riley’s perfect world comes to a screeching halt. Misery loves company and everyone around her is her is feeling the pain. She is critical, angry and just a beast. Riley goes out one night and decides to let loose. She dials down her bitchy demeanor and puts on some beer goggles. Riley hooks up with her BFF boyfriend’s band mate – Garrett Bellow. By Riley’s standards hooking up with the hottie stoner is equivalent to “slumming it”. Garrett is a “townie” who lives by her college and seems to have no life plan in place. Garrett plays guitar is in a popular local band and has job doing construction work. After a wild night of sex (which she can’t really remember) she wakes up and regrets ever being with Garrett.

“I felt like a miserable failure on all fronts. I was hung over and ashamed. Not a good combination when you felt like throwing up all over your shoes.”

She rejects Garrett over and over again…while fighting her feelings for him. Garrett doesn’t have a life plan so she thinks he is a lost cause and not for her. Riley strikes out at Garrett and treats him like total shit…but he keeps coming back for more. He sees something behind her cold mask of rejection and slowly melts her ice berg sized heart.

“We’ve found something in each other than we want. Hell if I understand why. Out of all the fish in the sea, I had to hook you. One giant, snarly toothed piranha ready to bite my fingers off.”

“My heart isn’t strong enough to survive you Riley. You won’t just bend it, you have the power to shatter it to pieces.”

After being bitch slapped…literally by a few loved ones. She starts to snap out of her PMS on acid façade. But will it be too late?

This story unravels mostly through Riley’s razor sharp tongue. There is angry and then there is Riley Walker. She’s not likeable through much of PR. While I didn’t like her…. I loved the book. In Bad Rep (book 1) she was a solid friend with just a strong personality – not mean spirited like in PR. Garrett on the other hand…is so likeable (and maybe too nice). I will say there were times there were times I want to reach in my kindle a smack him for putting up with Riley. Bad Rep fans will be happy that Maysie and Jordon are integrated nicely into PR.

This story has the perfect amount of – angst, drama and character chemistry. I made the mistake of thinking I could skim through Bad Rep before I read APG. Not a chance…I got sucked in all over again. I would recommend this book and series. A Perfect Regret is a perfect read and was worth the wait. 4.5 - 5 stars!

This review appears on,, Goodreads, Amazon and Twitter.

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Contemporary and Paranormal romance including The Find You in the Dark series, Bad Rep and its upcoming sequel.

A. Meredith spent ten years as a counselor for at risk teens and children. First working at a Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault program and then later a program for children with severe emotional and mental health issues. Her former clients and their stories continue to influence every aspect of her writing.

When not writing (or being tortured with all manner of beauty products at the hand of her very imaginative and extremely girly 6 year old daughter), she is eating chocolate, watching reality television that could rot your brain and reading a smutty novel or two.






I listened silently, not sure what to do or say. This quiet, introspective side of Garrett had me off balance.

And when he started to hum along to the strange melody I had to stop myself from sighing aloud. Hey, even I wasn’t immune to a good-looking musician. I did possess the double X chromosome, you know.

His eyes were closed and his fingers moved along the fret board with a confidence that was definitely appealing. His face was open and unguarded and I could watch him like this forever.

I liked this Garrett. I more than liked this Garrett. He fascinated me.

Garrett opened his eyes and found me watching him. The air heated between us, the molecules practically crackling with electricity.

“God, you’re beautiful,” he said softly, as though more to himself than to me.

My heart was beating at a frantic pace in my chest, his words twinging something in my brain. Images flashed in my head of him kissing the inside of my thighs. I could almost feel his lips as they moved up my skin to taste between my legs.

The memory was so vivid that I knew it could only be from that night. Shit, I remembered him fucking me with his tongue before he crawled over top of me and told me how beautiful I was. And the look in his eyes had been earth shattering.

I tingled from head to toe and I desperately wanted to remember more.

Positive and negative forces peacefully coexist within the lives of ordinary people every day.
Aria Cole has a desire to create beauty in whatever environment she is placed. The emotional toll of expending her heart diverts her to a new direction, and she flourishes while creating beauty in a new way. When a personal loss finds its way into her world, she experiences heartbreaking devastation. Her memories have compelled her to a place where she experiences peace and contentment. 
Declan Sinclair’s occupation demands that he use his body as much as his mind, and it forces him to move in a fast-paced world. When the accelerated pace of his lifestyle encourages him to personally navigate the course of his professional destiny, he seizes the opportunity to retreat to his refuge and prepare a vocational strategy.

When positive and negative circumstances merge the lives of Aria and Declan, they find they have more in common than the love of a place of peace. Can the lives of two people, the events that unite them, the circumstances that surround them, and the attraction that draws them be enough to put their lives into balance and assist them in finding what they both secretly desire?
