Toni’s no stranger to making mistakes. She has experienced firsthand how walking down the wrong path can send life spiraling out of control. Fortunately, she had someone to drag her from the gutter and help set her on the right track. As penance for the poor choices of her past, she pledges to suppress her baser desires and focus on finding a steady, dependable man, even if that means embracing a boring lifestyle.
The last thing anyone would call Zach is dull. As Enforcer for the Hell’s Handlers MC, he embodies the outlaw lifestyle. When Toni moves in next door, Zach can’t resist the possibility of a quick, hot fling. But he soon discovers she’s not the easy conquest he’s used to.
While Zach works to convince Toni she belongs in his bed, a tenuous relationship with a local gang disintegrates and threatens his MC family. Zach’s world is turned upside down when he’s unable to keep the danger from touching his club.
As Toni fights to resist Zach’s pull, her own peace is shattered by demons from her past. With enemies both old and new barreling down, she throws out her rules and turns to Zach for aid. Soon, she finds herself firmly entrenched in Zach’s dangerous world.
Is it possible for her to curb her desires, or is she doomed to repeat the mistakes of her past?
None of it will matter if Zach can’t keep their enemies at bay.





Lilly Atlas is the contemporary romance author of the award-nominated No Prisoners MC series. She’s a proud Navy wife, mother of two spunky girls, and one crazy pug. Every time Lilly downloads a new EBook, she expects her Kindle to tell her it’s exhausted and beg for some rest. Thankfully that hasn’t happened yet, so she can often be found absorbed in a good book.

This was a one hell of a surprise for an audiobook. This book is a duet narration. I have read a lot of duet narrations before. Typically at either the woman or the man narrating the chapter that is for the main character they are assigned to. So for example in Maybe someday by Colleen Hoover there is a duet narration and. Each chapter is assigned to either the main character Sydney or Ridge. Both voice actors would read the chapter assigned to the main character that they were supposed to be reading for. What caught me by surprise with this duet narration is the fact they had both Erin and Noah were narrating in each other’s chapters. So when the chapter was suppose to be Toni’s perspective Noah would jump in and voice the Male characters. So it creates an interesting narrative throughout the whole listening experience. I can tell that a lot of time effort went into putting this whole audio book together. For me this really enhances my experience as a reader. I know that the sound technician to put all of the audio together put a lot of time and effort into it.

Lilly Atlas can tell one compelling story. She really gets in there and messes with your emotions. Just after finishing this book when I should have been sleeping, I went to Audible and downloaded her No Prisoner MC series. Lilly really makes a name for herself in the genre. If you have been a reader of this book over nine or ten months you know I love my MC books.

Erin DeWard did such an amazing job. This is the first book I have heard her voice before. Her tone was always even and her performance of Toni and every female she.voice was fantastic. She has been added to my auto-buy list. Her voice really did compliant Noah’s voice really well.

Noah Michael Lavine is a wizard and a master of the Irish accent. There is a character copper who is from Ireland and the accent is hard to replicate. Noah does a phenomenal job. I’m really picky when it comes to Male voice actors but he had my heart pound. Love his deep voice.

Together these two are just magic. This audiobook gave me a very interesting listening experience and just left me wanting more. I really thing more audiobooks should do more of this duet style narration where no matter who’s POV it is they let the man narrate for Male characters and the female narrate for for the female characters. Totally 5 out 5 from and would recommend this audiobook who loves MC books

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lilly Atlas. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Book Review – Fate and Foutune

Hello, wonderlandians. I hope you guys are having a fantastic Thursday and you guys are getting ready to weekend soon. I know my weekend is going to be sane. I have a party for my grandmother and then I am doing a photoshoot for something your photos for my mom’s a friend. So today we have a book to talk about.

You guys know how I like to talk about the cover first. This cover one I first looked at it I didn’t quite understand. But this cover like 100% fits this story to 18. I like the fact that there’s a lot of gray tones within the cover. I honestly think while it’s a cover that I have seen before it’s a little bit different.

Fate and Fortune

by Julia Sherman

Genre: Adult Paranormal Thriller

Release Date: January 27th 2018

Summary:

June 6, 2014 was a beautiful sunny day until two gunmen, wearing black masks, ran into a local coffee shop in the middle of the day and took people hostage. As the police burst through the door, the two men killed each other but not before they began shooting people one by one. The shooters thought that they were possessed by the Devil, and the Devil was ordering them to carry out his plan.

Two years later, after the news of the shooting became a distant memory for most, four different people from four different walks of life suddenly meet the same lady, who starts to impact their lives in unexpected and mysterious ways. But, just as they set out to discover who she really is, and what it is that she wants from them; they find themselves stuck in a life-and-death struggle as the mystery unfolds, and suddenly nothing seems sure anymore.

REVIEW

First off I want to say thank you to YA Bound Book Tours for sending me this book and letting me be a part of this awesome tour.  So this book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review and as well as know that is how I always give my reviews so Let’s go.

This book is a very interesting read and it really made me think about life in general. No, I don’t want to give away too much of this book because every chapter kind of unravels the mystery of these for strangers that we meet. Our four main characters are Liam, Alex, Erica and, Charlie. Now all  4 of our characters are somehow Interconnected. Liam, Alex, and Erica are the ones where we get to see their perspective and how this fateful event had changed their lives. The ones that I say that we have the most interaction or Erica and Charlie. Erica is a doctor and she is currently treating Charlie who happens to be in a coma. So when we do get to Charlie’s chapters it is very interesting because it’s told in a way where she’s in the coma she can hear everything that’s going around her but she’s unable to interact.

I honestly think the author Had a really good idea when it came to this story. How can meeting one stranger bring on events 2 years later after a very tragic accident happens. How does fate and luck really play into our lives? And I found that while I’m reading this book I am really thinking about things that I’ve done in my life and what events have brought me to where I am. Then it gets me thinking about the flip side of what if I chose a different path would my life have turned out differently.  these are questions that everyone everywhere really tends to start asking.

I am on page 86 of this book now and I have to say I think this book is a semi-horror book. There is an element to it that I am kind of freaked out. It’s like 8:30 at night and I am genuinely a little freaked out to be in my apartment by myself. I think to Play the huge part in this book. Once you read it you will understand how he plays a role. I don’t think I will be able to sleep tonight. I really thoroughly enjoying this read it super fun it’s a quick read. I typically have been turning my books into audiobooks. So one of the features that I really like about the iPad is the fact that I can highlight something and I can have it read it to me. So I have essentially sped up the robotic voice up to about double times speed which is what I listen to my audiobook to and it’s great I am really liking it. I will update you later.

Alrighty, so I have officially finished the book. I am thoroughly creeped out and I will probably not really be able to sleep tonight. It has been awhile since I’ve read a book like that. This book ends on Such a cliffhanger. if there is not going to be another book  I am going to be so mad. I am thoroughly intrigued and I need to know more like they really need to be more. All of this stuff happens and oh my God my mind is blown. I have never read a book that has weaved together four different perspectives So well. I honestly don’t know what to do with myself and I honestly don’t know what to read next I honestly have a feeling good book until I know if there’s going to be a sequel. It’s going to put me into a little bit of a mini reading slump. This book was fantastic and I recommend it to everybody. I’m really sorry that this review is all over the place but honestly, my thoughts are all over the place and I was reviewing this book as I was reading it. The seems to be the style that I’ve been kind of choosing to go with lately. You guys get my reactions as I’m reading the book. So definitely go pick up this book it was really good.

He is everything I’ve ever wanted in a man. And I will do anything to get him. Even if I have to lie to him — Ethan

He is a sinful temptation. A guy who loves pushing all my buttons. But I can’t touch him. And I most definitely cannot have him — Joe

Ethan Skye has had only one goal in mind since the first night he walked into Saron, the most exclusive gay club in Tokyo: to win the heart of Joe Cavendish, its brooding owner and the man he’d fallen in love with at first sight. When Ethan takes a job as a bartender at Saron to get closer to Joe, little does he know that his actions will set him in the sights of an obsessive admirer.

Jaded by his troubled past and with his heart very much guarded, Joe Cavendish has one strict rule in life: never mix business with pleasure. Unfortunately for Joe, one cocky, sexy bartender seems intent on testing that resolve to its very limits, and Joe finds his patience and his libido increasingly challenged as he fights his growing attraction for his new employee. But after Joe discovers the danger Ethan is in, his possessive instincts compel him to take on the role of Ethan’s personal bodyguard and pretend lover.

Can Joe protect Ethan from his increasingly violent stalker and maintain his own sanity while he gets up close and personal to the alluring young man storming his way inside his numb heart? Will Ethan overcome Joe’s stubbornness and convince the club owner to take a chance on love? Or will the secrets they’ve been keeping from each other threaten their fragile, burgeoning relationship?

Discover Ethan and Joe’s story in this second novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger.

Don’t Rush Me
Jackie May
Publication date: January 25th 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists. They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them. Nora Jacobs is different. Nora knows exactly what kinds of hellish creatures haunt the streets of Detroit.

Thanks to a unique set of psychic abilities, Nora has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But all that changes the night the most powerful vampire in the city discovers her gifts and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

As if that’s not bad enough, Nora believes she’s cursed. All her life, people, especially men, have been drawn to her—some to the point of obsession and violence. Underworlders, it seems, are not immune to this curse, and now she’s caught the attention of some of the most dangerous monsters in the city.

Neck deep in an investigation only she can solve, Nora quickly makes as many new allies as she does enemies. Her biggest problem is staying alive long enough to decide which is which.
