My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Friction by Sapphire Knight is a gripping MC novel full of graphic language and adult situations. It's audience is definitely an 18+ one.
I was gifted this book as an ARC for an honest review and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. This is the first of Sapphire's books that I have had the opportunity of reading. Not to say I haven't wanted to, as I have a collection of her books on my kindle ready for me to indulge in.
This book had me from the start! As you start reading there is a little note advising that you should probably read Forsaken Control before diving into this one. That had me a little sceptical that maybe I was missing something, but I had nothing to worry about. Although I will definitely be reading Forsaken Control very soon!!
To begin with we meet Sadie, a pregnant girl on her way to her brother, who also happens to be a member of the Oath Keeper MC in Texas. Originally from California, Sadie, now no longer working, decides to sell her parents house, to make a fresh start for her and her child. Leaving behind her former life and her baby's daddy - Ghost, a member of Iron Fists MC in California, Sadie embarks on a journey across states to join her brother 2 Piece.
When Sadie reaches the Oath Keeper's compound she is confronted by Twist, a club member who takes her in and looks after her until her brother awakens. Twist we discover, is an ex military man who lost his wife and daughter in tragic circumstances. After unsuccessfully trying to end his own life he is taken into the Oath Keeper MC where he becomes known as the Unholy One. That nickname says it all I believe, and I am sure you can imagine what a tragedy like the one he suffered can do to a man.
This is a story of a girl looking for love and stability and a man battling his demons to find his way back. It is an unconventional love story, that sucks you in, keeping you reading so that you can find out where the story will lead you. Everything that happens in between has you on the edge of your seat. It really is a fantastic story and one I would highly recommend!!

The Way With You(The Way book 2)
By Anne Mercier
Photographer and designer: Sara Eirew Models: David Toth and Jade Landry
Finding a ”happily ever after”; was hard enough.
Keeping it is even harder.
Olivia Brennan and Cameron Stone have both gone through Hell and back to finally find their way to each other. With obstacles set against them, the struggle to stay connected is harder than ever. Between their academic schedules, Olivia’s newfound campus infamy, and a conniving ex stirring up trouble, Liv and Cam begin to struggle to keep what they’ve worked so hard for.
But when something unexpected fractures their trust, they must decide if they can repair what’s left of their fragile love or will they discover that “happily ever after” is just for fairytales?

Currently available in Amazon Kindle Unlimited
She was perky, fun, and full of life—everything I hated about girls and their bullshit exterior. People called her bubbly; I called her “fake-as- hell.”
The edgy, dark, lonely girl in front of me was not the Olivia Brennan I knew from high school—far from it, actually. I knew the story—the whole town knew the story, we witnessed it all. It happened in the blink of an eye and the girl we knew was gone.
But I refuse to watch it anymore—I can’t stand it. I’m going to fix it—fix her. It’s time I showed Olivia Brennan her way back…
Back to the girl she used to be.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin and still live here today with my two sons and puppy. (Though one day soon I hope to move to southern California!)
I’m an avid reader who gets inspired by reading the stories from my favorite authors as well as listening to various types of music. I am a huge fan of music, chocolate, fruit, desserts, autumn, M. Shadows, Avenged Sevenfold, and Milo Ventimiglia. Through my books, I am proudly creating new Avenged Sevenfold and Milo Ventimiglia fans one reader at a time.
I absolutely love interacting with readers and invite you to contact me any time via email: Anne@AnneMercierAuthor.com.
“The best part of being an author, to me, is being able to take the reader to that one place they long to go when they need to escape reality. Knowing I can do that, for even one reader, makes what I do worthwhile.” ~ Anne Mercier

I have created a review team, where I can interact, brainstorm, send out ARC's and anything else we deem fit! The initial reviews, (all bar one) have been fantastic xx
I never anticipated that I would find readers who enjoyed my story line and characters as much as I do!! It has removed some of that self doubt, but I know I will have that with each new addition I create.
Being noticed by people and having them approach me of their own free will, is something I am cherishing, because it gives me hope that my dream of going somewhere with my writing could be a reality.
I am extremely grateful to everyone who has offered their support and encouragement, because it motivates me to continue on with this journey.............
And because I am still overwhelmed with my reviews, I am going to share just a couple more :)

It relieves some of the pressure that I have been feeling over the last day.......... now to wait for the rest
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is by far, my favourite of the Scorpio Stinger MC series!!
This has everything you would expect and more. I have wanted to know more about Harrison since I started this series and this book is everything I had hoped it would be.
Harrison and Eva's characters are well defined, with a realism to them, that I love when I am reading a new book.
This was a great, well written instalment, to a fantastic series and well worth the read.

I now understand why the authors we review for get nervous each time they send their ARC's out to us...........
I have even resorted to re reading it myself today, to see whether I can gauge what the reactions will be.
I just have to remember, that this is what I want, I want the world to read my stories and like them as much as I do :/

I am still waiting on my professional review, which got pushed back to April and am yet to see my book video (which is still in production) so it appears that I need to push my debut novel some more on my end.
How much do you need to do? Is it pushy to ask other authors you follow if you can ask members of their groups if they would offer you some honest reviews, that can be posted to Amazon etc?
I have never expected anything to just happen and success to fall in my lap, but what do we, as new authors, need to do to put ourselves in a position where we can get noticed.
I also don't want to push something that nobody likes either :(
So.... this week has seen me join Books & Boys Book Blog as a reviewer, to add to the other review teams I am a part of. The more I get involved in the writing world, the happier I am. My hope is that I can one day, go on to be as successful as the wonderful authors I review for are. :)

I was gifted this novel for an honest review.
Misti Murphy is an author I have only just discovered, and I found her novel - Kiss Chasey to be a fantastic read. What I loved about this book, was that, it was never what it seemed. Just when you think you have the storyline worked out, it changes on you! I loved that!
Seeing as though, this is the first time I have read anything by Misti, I found the content to be very well written, with a complex storyline that kept you enthralled until the end.
I enjoy finding books that catch my interest in the first chapter, as there is more chance that I won't want to put it down. This book definitely did that, as I finished the book in two days.
If you are looking for something different from the usual romance books, then this is one I would highly recommend. x

Until I got my wish and then wished I fucking hadn’t. I got their attention all right, and everything went to hell. I tried to protect my younger brother from the fallout. Lied to him about how bad things were.
But it wasn’t enough. And when the accident happened, he blamed me, like everyone else.
I’m guilty of many things. He’s right about that, at least. So damn guilty I’m sure everyone knows and will call me out on it.
Except they don’t. Nobody does, except my brother.
Not even Kayla, sexy and sweet and coolest girl ever, who keeps buying me coffee and trying to read my future. But my future isn’t in the goddamn cards, or even in my hands. I don’t see a future. I deny fate, but fate has me pinned like a moth and won’t let me walk away.
Won’t let me escape.
And yeah… you know you’re losing grip when the girl you want reads your palm and you’re scared to hell of what she’ll see and of the pain you can tell is coming.
"Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
