★★★★★ Review from Anna’s Bookshelf – “The Time Is Now is another spectacular novel from one of my all time favorite dark romance authors.

★★★★★ Goodreads Review – “This was action packed, suspenseful, dramatic, and chemistry filled. A thrilling read with all the right elements. I love this series.”
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
I’ve loved Shane and Ryleigh since we started to see them in the books prior. They have a unique relationship and their story was just as unique and worth the wait to read. These two are best friends, but they are both denying their real feelings for each other. Waiting for the other to recognize something different. Until that happens they will remain best friends, but can they survive the changes that are coming? Will there be betrayal or redemption in this story?
Shane has to become Vinnie again, but will he let Vinnie really take over his life? Ryleigh needs Shane in her life as her person, and when their lives become very complicated due to their situation things could get out of hand.
I loved this story and the twists, turns, and surprises that were revealed in this story. I have loved reading the Beautifully Brutal series from the start and I am looking forward to remaining books in the series. Their getting better with each story and I am intrigued to read more.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Tragic, haunting, and emotional read.
Blake’s past still haunts him, it was brutal and painful. It’s the main reason he doesn’t act on his feelings for Ember, a club girl. He believes that he’s not good enough for her, so he keeps his feelings locked up tight, but when he can’t stay away any longer, a surprise shows up and his world is flipped.
Ember comes from a prominent family, but that doesn’t mean she was showered with love and affection. It just means that she decided to rebel, but during one of those rebellious times she found herself in a lot of trouble with no escape, until two bikers stood up and took out of harms way, now she has a family of her choice and people who let her be herself and follow her own dreams. She just wishes that Blake felt for her half as much as she feels for him.
This was a tragic story with a haunting past for one character that followed him all the time. His demons aren’t far away at any given time, but his new family helps him keep a tight reign on the thoughts that bring him down. Blake is a good man that survived an awful childhood and just wants some good in his life. I loved the story and the characters. I’ve loved this series so far and Seeking Peace was a great addition to the series. I look forward to more books in the Kings of Retribution Montana MC Series to come.
Now Live and My Review → Property of Azrael: Bastard Boilers MC (The Mayhem Makers Series -MMM World Collaboration) by Avelyn Paige
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Azrael and his brothers are just looking for some time away to regroup and get away from the pain and memories that are bringing his twin down. The Bastard Boilers MC is ready to head to Mexico for a week of fun in the sun and some time to heal. While on their trip, they find a woman stranded on the side of the road and stop to help her. Azrael had no idea the impact this woman would have on him, but he’s ready to take the ride.
Hallie is beyond happy that she has received a coveted invite to the Motorcycles, Mobsters, and Mayhem book signing in Conroe, Texas. Being an author is a dream come true for her and now another dream has come true for her, her first signing, and the MMM 2023 at that. In her beat up, old clunker of a car, she heads to Texas, only to get stranded on the side of the road in Arkansas and help hours away due to the incoming storm and tow trucks being tied up. When some bikers pull up to help Hallie, she’s immediately on alert. After all, she does write MC romance and she has an inkling how these guys are.
This was a great story and I loved Azrael and Hallie. Neither one are what I was expecting, but they are great. I love the connection to the MMM 2023 and story line around their connecting as well as Azrael’s idea to stay with Hallie. I loved this first book in the Bastard Boilers MC and I will keep a watch for more in the future. This was one of my first books by Avelyn Paige, but I will be purchasing more.
4 ⭐️ Review of Kiss of Power: Darby Crime Family (Mayhem Makers – MMM) by Jewelz Baxter
My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Ellis has wanted Arabella for quite a while and when an opportunity arrises, he will take advantage of the situation and make her his.
Arabella hates Ellis and they are always sparing over the fence between their properties. He enjoys her sass and that she’s not afraid to stand up to him. She despises him and wants nothing to do with him, or does she? When she finds herself in his home and has no idea for how long, the feelings begin to show.
I love how Ellis is a hard man, but he is a softy when it comes to Arabella. His life was not gentle or kind growing up and it made him and his brothers the hard, lethal men they are, but there is a soft side that only comes out for the right person and that just so happens to be Arabella.
This was my first book by Jewelz Baxter, but will not be my last. I enjoyed her writing style and her story telling and I look forward to finding more of her books to read. I’ll be buying some soon.
🥀Wrecked: A Devil’s Handmaidens MC🥀 Novel (Devil’s Handmaidens MC Alaska Chapter Book 1) by E. M. Shue is LIVE! @emshue_ak – check out my Review at the bottom.
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Tragic, suspenseful, secrets revealed, action packed, and second chances.
She had planned to return home at some point, but she wasn’t planning to do it so soon. She had a time line, but someone moved that time line up on her. Now she’s in danger in her home state of Alaska. Good thing she has her MC sisters behind her and more on the way. She also has the love of her life behind her, but they need to clear the air first. Scout’s secret is going to be revealed, she isn’t sure how she’s going to deal with it, but she will.
Thad is the lead investigator on the case that brings Scout back home. Their past is unresolved. They both believe the other to have been the reason for their pain but when secrets are revealed about their past will they be able to work together to protect Scout’s family? Thad’s life after Scout wasn’t a happy one, but the one part of that he doesn’t regret is his son.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s a great chapter of the Devil’s Handmaidens and I can’t wait to read more of this chapter.

escape. When she finally purchased an e-reader, she found a whole new world— indie authors.
Tressa gets the chance to attend a book signing where many of her favorite authors will be. Real-life
bikers will also be in attendance. She manages to snag a VIP ticket to the event instead of a general
While traveling to the hotel she’ll be staying at, she gets a flat tire. A tall, tattooed biker stops to help
her change the tire. Even though she doesn’t get a good look at the man, she feels a sense of longing.

“Come on, think Tressa,” I mutter to myself. I woke up to find myself trussed up like a
Thanksgiving turkey. Of course, if I hadn’t gotten a streak of bravery and mouthed off at the
jerks who took me, I probably wouldn’t have taken the blow to my face that knocked me
Newsflash, getting hit like that hurts! My face feels puffy and one eye is partially closed,
while I can taste blood in my mouth. Swiping my tongue over my lips, I wince when I feel
“That’s gonna leave a mark,” I whisper, feverishly trying to get my hands loose from their
bindings. I momentarily feel like I’m succeeding until fire races up my arms and I realize I’ve
managed to rip the skin open at my wrists. “Dammit. What do all the heroines in the books
I read do when they find themselves kidnapped? Because I know these guys aren’t going to
let me go, at least not still alive. I may not be worldly, but I’m not naive nor stupid.”
Their comments have also let me know what they’re planning for me and it’s the stuff
nightmares are made of, which says a lot coming from a self-confessed crime junkie. The
tall guy with greasy, gray hair tied back with a piece of leather, whose cut denotes he’s the
president of this band of miscreants, has already stated rather loudly that he’s first in line
once the party really gets going. I had to read between the lines, but quickly realized that
I’m the party favor they intend to play with. Now, I’ve always admired the old ladies who’ve
finagled their way to freedom after being unwillingly taken. I even admire their tenacity for
waiting to be rescued, but I don’t want to be that woman. In my mind, these scenes weren’t
so gut wrenching, but in real life, it’s harrowing.
Shudders wrack my body at the thought of any of them touching me in any way, much less
like that. I’d rather try and throw myself backward onto the floor and hope I break my neck
or something than allow them to violate me.
Hearing a noise at the door, I look up and see one of the guys who took me leering at me
before he throws his head back and cackles. “Time’s almost up, pretty lady. Once we’re
done with you, there won’t be anything left for the vultures to snack on.”
One single tear rolls down my face before I can control myself. Seeing it, he laughs
menacingly, and pulls out a knife from a sheath at his waist, walking toward me.
I’m sorry, Nini, that I won’t get to tell you about my brief time with the handsome biker.
Right now, though, I’m so glad you didn’t come with me and you’re not here to experience
I am a transplanted Yankee, moving from upstate New York when I was a teenager. I’m a mom of
four and grandma of nine who has found a love of traveling that I never knew existed! I live with the
brat-cat pack (all rescues) as well as my dog, Bosco, ‘deep in the heart of Texas’, as I plot and plan
who will get to “talk” next!

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 OUT OF 5
This was a great start to a new MC series. I loved the characters and the story line. It was action packed, just the right pace and has great characters.
A chance meeting on the side of the road leads to fated mates for a reader and cover designer attending the Motorcycles, Mafia and Mayhem Book signing and the Enforcer of the Zephyr Hills Phantoms MC. It may take a few days before it becomes clear that they are fated mates, but when Chaos shows up at the signing on behalf of his MC as a courtesy to the organizer, Sapphire Knight, he runs into the woman he met on the side of the road when she was trying to fix a flat tire. She has no idea what Chaos has figured out, but she is ready to believe his explanation after she’s been taken and he rescues her from a rival MC.
This was a great story and the characters were wonderful. I look forward to more in this series to come. I just recently found Darlene Tallman and started reading her books. I’m glad I found her and her books. I love her stories and her characters.
🔥 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗥𝗘𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗘 & A REVIEW 🔥Life Stands Still For No One (The Mayhem Makers Series – MMM) by Vera Quinn @VQAuthor is LIVE! #KindleUnlimited #MustRead
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 OUT OF 5
Raider and Billie’s story is a story of a strong woman that has to show her man that she’s not someone to sit and let a man take care of her. Billie is a strong woman that knows her mind and her strengths. She just needs Raider to open his eyes and his heart to see that he can have more than just his mom in his life and that both parents made their mistakes years ago.
Raider needs to sit back and think about how he wants his life to be. He is so single minded when it comes to his father that he can’t seem to see the light. Billie tries to show him that he has a second chance with his father, but will Raider remain stubborn and shut off where Rager is concerned. Raider and Billie could have a a great family and support, but Raider needs to learn to look around him and accept that he may have been wrong in his perception of is Rager and his MC.
I really like Billie, she’s strong, smart, and not afraid to speak her mind. She’s sweet, and open minded as well. She’s strong enough to stand up to Raider and his narrow minded thoughts and help him see that they can have a wonderful and fulfilling family with both MC’s and her family backing them, they can’t go wrong. I loved the story and I give it a 4.5 star review.

🔥 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗥𝗘𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗘 & A REVIEW ➜ Twisted Road of Secrets and Regrets (The Mayhem Makers Series – MMM) by Penny Anglene and Vera Quinn @AAnglene and @VQAuthor is 𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 OUT OF 5
Rager , President of the Rival Sons MC only has one regret, the woman he let get away. He’s never let anyone else get close to him and he still carries a torch for Honey.
Honey, the woman that walked away from Rager. She has regrets too, but she won’t know that until after she runs into Rager again 25 years later. Her career has taken off and she’s a writer under a Pen Name at the MMM2023 signing in Texas.
Secrets, betrayal, and regret are all present in this book. Rager and Honey have a lot to discuss and work out if they ever plan to have a future together. Too many years have passed with them missing out on things that could have brought them closer together. When Rager finds out the secrets that have been kept from him, he has to step back and think. He knows he still loves Honey and he would really like to make a life with her, but can they both put aside the hurt and betrayal that caused the rift between them so long ago?
I loved this addition to the MMM World books. It was a roller coaster of a ride, but so worth the hurt and pain that the story brought out. I want more of these characters and can’t wait to read Life Stands Still For No One. Great addition to the Motorcycles, Mobsters, and Mayhem World.
Whiskey Rivers: Texas Creek Mafia (Mayhem Makers – MMM) by Roux Cantrell is NOW LIVE! @RouxCantrell
Jackson stood naked staring out over the land. His legs spread with one large hand pressed against the bullet proof tinted glass. The woman at his feet was business. A mere distraction at best. It didn’t mean he minded the small moans that slipped past her lips. Running his hand over her head as she sucked his c**k. His rhythm kept a slow pace as he continued to watch the pump jacks pulling oil up from beneath the ground and realized he was bored.

MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Another great story in the Motorcycles, Mobsters and Mayhem World! This one had a little different connection to the MMM Signing, but it was no less a great addition and story to read.
Whiskey River is looking for her next story to write prior to the MMM2023 signing in Texas. She hates to lie to her readers, so she decides to take a few weeks prior to the signing to travel and see if she can come up with a story. Little does she know that her life will be turned upside down and sideways but this little trip.
I loved Whiskey and her impulsive side. She was fun, impulsive, and ready for an adventure. However, I don’t think her idea of adventure was anywhere near what she found on her little trip. Jackson is an enigma and she’s not sure what she’s getting when she meets him and he rescues her. I’ve loved the stories I’ve read in this world and I’ve found some new to me authors that I will add to my reading lists. It’s been a great world to read and I love that it has been shared with readers.
