Tessa Bell has been through so much in her young life. She has survived more attempts on her life than most people would get the chance to. She’s wary of the outside world due to everything she has been through and feels that if she just keeps away from the all of the danger, she’ll be fine. That doesn’t mean that she always believes that she will be safe in her own home though and that is evident by the knife under her pillow that she is trying to get to in time to defend herself from the man that she knows is in her bedroom. Tessa lives in her large family mansion with her fifteen-year-old son and there are homes on the property where her brother and his family live as well as her late husband’s partner from the police force, Skylar Wyatt, and his wife live. Her son, PJ, is home schooled and is a loner just like his mom.
Jack Xander and his partner Xavier Montague are called to the Micah Mansion on a case of a kidnapping. Tessa Bell had been kidnapped from her own bed in the middle of the night and now they were on a time line to find her alive and bring her home. This case is a high-profile case and will be worked by Jack and Xavier and Jack’s younger brother, Ryan and his partner Paige. They will learn that even though Tessa was a recluse, Ryan’s wife Sofia knows her and has known her and been friends with her since childhood.
This story is full of suspense, twists and turns, mystery, and turmoil. It’s intense and the killer is kept hidden very well by Jane Blythe. I had no clue who the villain was until Ms. Blythe wanted me to. I love a good mystery, suspense, thriller where the killer is revealed later in the story and I have to deduce who it could be. A lot of times, I have a good idea of who it is, but in this story as with the other stories in this series, I have a hard time narrowing it down and figuring it out. I love that it is not easily determined in this story and it made it so much better when I found out who it was, especially because it was not at all who I thought.
I give this story a 5-star review and recommend it to readers who like stories that will draw you in and tug at your heart while simultaneously have you wanting the killer to be caught before anyone else has to suffer for his or her demented mind. If you are a lover of suspense and thrillers, this is the book you should one-click and read right away.

It is a great story with great characters and left me wanting more. I really hope that there will be a next book about Ryan.

Addie was adopted by Tyler and Meredith Blackfoot at a very young age. Now that she is eighteen, she wonders who she is and where she belongs. Since her best friend Tatum has a boyfriend and they don’t talk or hang out like they used to she’s feeling very alone and out of place in her life.

Left his home state of Mississippi with the clothes on his back, a couple of changes in his saddle bags, a box with his grandfather’s ashes in, and his motorcycle. He has not path in life and ends up breaking down outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Feeling alone and out of place he contemplates what his next step will be when two men ride up on motorcycles and help him out. They end up doing more for him than anyone who has known him for years, with the exception of his grandfather.
This story was to heartbreaking, yet so beautiful. I was heartbroken when Addie and Wild were feeling so alone and trying to find their place in life, but it was so beautiful when they found each other and actually let their walls down and became a couple. I loved it.
I give this story a 4-star review and recommend it to readers who enjoy MC, women who skirt the rules in their lives to find their path, and stories of two broken souls being healed. I am so ready to read Fury. The ending to Wild has me on edge. It’s not a cliff-hanger, but it gives a glimpse into what where the story will lead next. I can’t wait!

Tatum Walker, princess of the Heaven Hills MC, is a young woman who doesn’t trust easily. Most of the people who want to date her or be her friend want that relationship to get close to her father or her family. The one man that she thought she could trust with her heart rejected her and has spoken to him in a year.
Remington “Remy” Sawyer is a man that most would never have thought of being in an MC if they knew him as a boy. He was skinny, asthmatic, and scared. His older brother, Cash, took him away from their mother and Remington’s dad and finished raising him. Giving him a safe place to live and grow into the man he is now. With the help and support of the Heaven Hill MC men, Remy and Cash are now living the life that they deserve and have a family that love them. Remy watched Tatum grow into the woman she is now and if he had been smart, he would have never rejected her last year when she offered herself to him. Now he has to find a way to get her back and show her that he loves her and will do whatever it takes to protect her and love her.
This story is a story of redemption, growing up, and friendship. Tatum and Remy needed that year break to grow up and realize that they were whole when they had each other in their lives. Tatum is dealing with the embarrassment of what she did after Remy rejected her and Remy is dealing with figuring out how to convince Tatum to give him a second chance. While they are finding their way back to each other, Remy also has to deal with his demons from his childhood.
I give this story a 4-star review and recommend it to readers who enjoy MC, redemption stories, and stories of two people who were made for each other finding their way together. This book has a sexy cover too.
I have not read the first Heaven Hills series but have it and will be reading it as soon as I have some time. I really want to get to know the beginning characters in this series. Now onto Wild, so that I can get ready for Fury. Review coming soon.

Zavareilli has done it again. She’s published another great read!
A story of a sexy, scarred, and broken biker and a beautiful, broken, con artist woman who will be thrown together to keep her safe and out of his loyalty for the first person to believe in him.
Birdie Blue is a woman who is scarred from her childhood and can’t seem to get away from the men who destroyed her childhood. She puts herself in danger to keep her older sister safe and to keep herself out of jail.
Huck Fallon “Ace” is a man who was abused from the day he was born. He hasn’t had an easy life and there’s not many men that he trusts. Lucien is the first person to believe in him and give him a chance in life. The other men are the men of his MC.
I really liked this book and the connection between Birdie and Ace is instant, but they try to ignore the attraction because both of them feel that they are not good enough or deserve a good life. The tragedy they each endured as children has scarred them and they believe they are broken and irredeemable. It’s a suspenseful, heartbreaking, tragic, and beautiful story. I give this story a 4.5-star review and suggest it to readers who like MC, corruption, criminal, and tragic stories. There are a few twists and enough suspense to keep you turning the pages and not wanting to put the book down.

A book about a forbidden love that is full of passion, deception, and a family that’s broken. The story of Ben and Lauren’s love is a forbidden love because they are step siblings. Lauren’s father is married to Ben’s mom, who was a widow. Ben’s mom Jenny is a rich woman who inherited her husband’s business when he died of natural causes. Lauren’s dad, Nick swooped in and manipulated Jenny into believing that he loved her and was her knight in shining armor.
Nick has forbidden Ben to see Lauren or even touch her, but he really has no control over their relationship, or does he? When Nick finds out about Ben and Lauren, he uses threats to break them up.
This book is intense and crushing at times. These are two young adults who see nothing wrong with their attraction and want to fight for their happiness, but they are young and their desire to protect the ones they love drive them. They aren’t able to think things through when they make a decision and it causes pain for everyone.
I really enjoyed this story and give it is 4.5-star review. I am looking forward to more of Ben and Lauren’s story, especially since the end of this one crushed me. This was my first read of Tracy Lorraine’s books, but I am glad I read it and I look forward to reading more. If you like angsty, young adult, forbidden love or stories that pull at your heartstrings, then you should pick up this book and read it.

Wow, if I thought Falling for the Forbidden crushed me, I was not prepared for Losing the Forbidden. This one slayed me to the core.
Ben and Lauren have been separated for six years. Lauren believes that he left of his own free will, and she has moved on with her life. Ben is stuck in the past and he is just waiting for the day that he can go home.
That day comes, but he is in for so much more heartache. Ben has a lot on his plate with his father’s business. He needs to figure out where his life is going now, and he needs to find a way to move on and take care of his mum.
This story slayed me. There was a lot of pain and destruction in it, and most of it was caused by one man. I cried for Ben and Lauren and I also got so angry with them. I did enjoy the book though and give it a 4.5-star review. I am anxious for more of their story. I recommend this book to readers who like stories about young love, angsty love, or rebuilding.
