~ Giveaway ~

When I started this whole blogging adventure I never thought that I would end up with a thousand people who like and follow me on Facebook. I had originally started it because I had been asked by some friends what I thought of some books, then when I had told them of a few ones that were really good they had asked what I would suggest to read next. I thought hmmm why not just start a page for them to follow what I think, then I looked into starting an actual blogging page. I have had so much fun reading, putting my reviews up and having people actually care about what I think. I love finding giveaways to share with people. I enjoy finding news on new books and sharing. So when I hit 1,000 on Facebook as well as hitting my 1 year of blogging, I wanted to put a giveaway together as a thank you!  I don’t do many giveaways so this has been fun and exciting for me.

I wanted to send out a huge thank you! Without these great authors (and more) I wouldn’t be able to do this!!!! So…

Thank You!!!!!! For all you do!!!

I don’t know if authors understand what they do for people like me (booklovers). We are able to sit and read, to escape from reality. Sometimes it is a need I am not sure many get unless you have a love and passion for books. When things may be too hectic or stressful we turn to you to help us leave it all behind even if for an hour or so. I know that a thank you may not be enough because to be honest I don’t feel that it can express to all the authors out there how much it means to us as readers!

Special Thank You to…

10 synopsis

Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares.

Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant of Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world.

This is Danny and Ripper’s story.

Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.
Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.

excerpt

The first time I fell in love it was with a pair of blue eyes and a wide dimpled grin. “Your old man loves ya, Danny girl,” He whispered. “You never ever forget that, yeah?” I never did. And I never thought I could ever love any man as much as I loved my father. But as we grow, we change, we begin to make our own decisions and thus become independent and self sufficient and start turning away from our parents and turning to others. We form friendships, strong bonds and ties and begin experiencing life outside of the bubble we grew up inside of. And we fall in lovea second time. The second time I fell in love it was with a badly scarred face, the stuff of nightmares; the sort of disfigurement that mothers steer their children away from. Ugly, jagged slashes marred the skin from the top of his skull, down over his right eye, an eye that had been dug out of his face with a serrated blade. The scars continued across his cheek, over his lips and down his neck, ending at the top of his shoulder. His chest was a hundred times worse; scar tissue as far as the eye could see. “Baby,” He said gruffly, “Man like me got no business with a girl like you. You’re nothin’ but fuckin’ beauty and I’m a whole lot of fuckin’ ugly who’s already halfway to hell.” But he was wrong. Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly. Because without ugly there would be no beauty. Because without beauty we would not survive our pain, our sorrow, and our suffering. And in the world I lived in, the world he lived in, a secret world within the world, a world of of constant crime and cruel, cold, death, there was almost nothing but suffering. “You may not be beautiful the way you were before,” I whispered, placing my hand on his hard chest. “But you’re still beautiful. To me.

Review

What can I say? WOW.

I loved book one and loved this one as well! I have to say that this one just broke my heart at quite a few parts. I have absolutely fallen in love with this MC and all the boys! I cannot get enough! I just wish I could get more but now I have to wait.

I said it before that these books may not be for everyone, there is a lot of cursing, a lot of name calling, and well if you have not read her Undeniable series then you just don’t know. For those of you who have read them you know! 😉

That being said…I loved it all. I have to say it was fun to have something that is so to what in my mind motorcycle clubs are. It may not be reality but I do know I love this series so far and look forward to reading all in this series. I just can’t get enough.

I was curious as to where it was going to go with Ripper and Danny and well we all know that Deuce will castrate him if he finds out what is going on right? Well you will have to just read to find out what exactly happens.

The whole storyline is similar to the first book with the young girl who has a thing for an older man. BUT that for me was where the similarities ended.  There were so many moments that had my heart breaking for one person and another and two more! This one pretty much picks up where the first left off which I loved I didn’t want to miss ANY DAMN THING!!!

I don’t know why I loved it so damn much, call me sick if you must but I just absolutely love her writing with this series. It is so different from what I normally read and for that I love her! She is all on her own level.

Okay back to the book. I will say that I love that we get a little of all the guys. I like that we don’t feel like we are only getting just one guy and one guy alone, we get all the brothers. It is mostly about Danny and Ripper yes but I love family saga kind of books and agree or not this is what this is to some extent. We get a little of all the guys with a majority of one in particular in each book.. I absolutely love when series do this when I love all the characters!

I could go on and on about how much I absolutely love this series, but you have to read it to truly love it. If bikers are what you are looking for some badass bikers at that… This is the series for you.

Synopsis: Danny & Ripper’s Story

The first time I fell in love it was with a pair of blue eyes and a wide dimpled grin.

“Your old man loves ya, Danny girl,” He whispered. “You never ever forget that, yeah?”

I never did. And I never thought I could ever love any man as much as I loved my father. But as we grow, we change, we begin to make our own decisions and thus become independent and self sufficient and start turning away from our parents and turning to others. We form friendships, strong bonds and ties and begin experiencing life outside of the bubble we grew up inside of.
And we fall in love…a second time.
The second time I fell in love it was with a badly scarred face, the stuff of nightmares; the sort of disfigurement that mothers steer their children away from. Ugly, jagged slashes marred the skin from the top of his skull, down over his right eye, an eye that had been dug out of his face with a serrated blade. The scars continued across his cheek, over his lips and down his neck, ending at the top of his shoulder. His chest was a hundred times worse; scar tissue as far as the eye could see.
“Baby,” He said gruffly, “Man like me got no business with a girl like you. You’re nothin’ but fuckin’ beauty and I’m a whole lot of fuckin’ ugly who’s already halfway to hell.”
But he was wrong.
Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.
Because without ugly there would be no beauty.
Because without beauty we would not survive our pain, our sorrow, and our suffering.
And in the world I lived in, the world he lived in, a secret world within the world, a world of of constant crime and cruel, cold, death, there was almost nothing but suffering.
“You may not be beautiful the way you were before,” I whispered, placing my hand on his hard chest. “But you’re still beautiful. To me.”
