Sinner's Steel by Sarah Castille (Review)

Title: Sinner's Steel
Series: Sinner's Tribe Motorcycle Club #3
Author: Sarah Castille
Released: October 6, 2015 St Martins Press
Format: EGalley
Pages: 352 per Goodreads

Tall, dark, and dangerously handsome, Zane "Tracker" Colter is the strong, silent type of tattooed muscle biker who drives women wild. But as a master of strategy for the outlaw MC club, Sinner's Tribe, he doesn't have time to play around with groupies and biker chicks-especially when he can't stop thinking about Evie, the girl who got away...

Evie's been in love with Zane ever since they were children-until he broke her heart and disappeared. Now he's back in her life, bigger and badder than ever. Zane is stunned by how beautiful and confident Evie's become, using her artistic talent to customize motorcycles. He wants her so bad, he'd ride through fire to win her back. There's one problem: Evie is dating his deadliest rival-the leader of the Black Jacks-and if Evie and Zane hook up, there'll be hell to pay...

The Sinner's Tribe series is an excellent example of why I love motorcycle club romances so damn much.  Sarah Castille takes this group of outlaws that err on the side of good, and really peels back the layers so you get to know each member.  Sinner's Steel is Zane's book, and if you think Zane is cold (as his first impression often is!) then you are dead wrong.  And if you mess with him, you're just dead.

Normal by Graeme Cameron (Review)

Title: Normal
Series: Standalone
Author: Graeme Cameron
Format: EGalley
Release Date: march 31, 2015 - Mira
Pages: 300 pages per Goodreads

"The truth is I hurt people. It's what I do. It's all I do. It's all I've ever done." 

He lives in your community, in a nice house with a well-tended garden. He shops in your grocery store, bumping shoulders with you and apologizing with a smile. He drives beside you on the highway, politely waving you into the lane ahead of him. 

What you don't know is that he has an elaborate cage built into a secret basement under his garage. And the food that he's carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he's holding there against her will—one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her. 

This is how it's been for a long time. It's normal... and it works. Perfectly. 

Then he meets the checkout girl from the 24-hour grocery. And now the plan, the hunts, the room... the others. He doesn't need any of them anymore. He needs only her. But just as he decides to go straight, the police start to close in. He might be able to cover his tracks, except for one small problem—he still has someone trapped in his garage. 

Discovering his humanity couldn't have come at a worse time.

Omg.  I just had a total blogger fail moment.  I requested this book a few months ago for review, then I read it, LOVED it, dished about it with my friends, and.... forgot to write my review.  D'oh!  Despite my brainfail, I think the upcoming spooky season is a great time to read this truly terrifying book.

Brother by Ania Ahlborn (Review)

Title: Brother
Series: Standalone
Author: Ania Ahlborn
Released: September 29, 2015 - Gallery Books
Format: EGalley
Pages: 336 per Goodreads

Deep in the heart of Appalachia stands a crooked farmhouse miles from any road. The Morrows keep to themselves, and it’s served them well so far. When girls go missing off the side of the highway, the cops don’t knock on their door. Which is a good thing, seeing as to what’s buried in the Morrows’ backyard.

But nineteen-year-old Michael Morrow isn’t like the rest of his family. He doesn’t take pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees. Michael pines for normalcy, and he’s sure that someday he’ll see the world beyond West Virginia. When he meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop in the small nearby town of Dahlia, he’s immediately smitten. For a moment, he nearly forgets about the monster he’s become. But his brother, Rebel, is all too eager to remind Michael of his place…

If you are looking for a great book to put you in the mood for autumn and for Halloween, I definitely recommend Brother.  This book was freaky and gruesome, and full of sick goodness.

Begging For It by Lilah Pace (Review)

Title: Begging For It
Series: Asking For It #2
Author: Lilah Pace
Released: September 1, 2015, Berkley
Format: EGalley
Pages: 341 per Goodreads

Some secrets should only be shared in the dark.

Jonah and Vivienne’s erotic bond—living out raw scenarios of captivity and force—began as no-strings sex between strangers who shared the same desires. Now the intimacy between them is turning into love, but it’s a love built on fantasies so extreme that exploring them makes guilt inescapable. But the risks they're taking are far more dangerous than they'd imagined.

A stalker is terrorizing the city, and one of Jonah’s ex-lovers names him as a potential suspect to the police. Standing by a man under suspicion could cost Vivienne everything. But when Jonah’s stepfather takes advantage of the scandal to seize control of the Marks family fortune, Vivienne is drawn into her lover’s broken family and twisted past. Only then will she learn how dark the truth really is...

Hmmmm.  I really have mixed feelings about this book, which I wasn't prepared for.  I really loved book one, Asking For It. But in Begging For It, I felt like it all became a bit ordinary.  It lacked the excitement that I was hoping for.

Even Better by Skye Warren (Review)

Title: Even Better
Series: Stripped #2.5
Author: Skye Warren
Released: September 20, 2015
Format: Ebook
Pages: 91 per Amazon

A story about how coming together can break us apart…

An old military friend of Blue’s comes to stay with us, and suddenly I have two muscled men surrounding me. Before I can take a breath, we’re diving into something dirty together—something dangerous. Dangerous because three is a crowd.

This is Blue’s best friend, and one of us will have to leave.

We met, and consequently fell in love with, Blue and Lola in Better When It Hurts.  Theirs is a complicated relationship, and still very new.  However, I believe they are as rock solid as any couple could be.  That is, until I read the blurb for Even Better.  Was it true?  Was Skye Warren going to rip apart one of my favorite couples?? There's no way I could just let this sit.  I had to find out!!

Vice by Rosanna Leo (Review & Excerpt)

Title: Vice
Series: Standalone
Author: Rosanna Leo
Release Date: September 22, 2015 - Samhain
Format: Ebook received for review
Pages: 226 per Amazon

As a Vegas singer and volunteer counselor, Kate Callender has experienced life on both sides of Sin City’s bright lights. The thrill of performing, and gambling’s devastating effect on the addicts’ families.

Liam Doyle is just the kind of man she despises—a handsome, enigmatic businessman with a knack for seducing customers into his casino hotels. Determined to put a lid on his growing influence, she prepares to picket the opening of his newest casino, Vice.

When Liam spots the lone protestor hassling his customers, annoyance wars with instant attraction. And he quickly discovers the leggy redhead not only can’t be bought, she tempts him the way the sound of a roulette wheel lures a gambler. 

They are natural enemies, but when a vile attack sparks Liam’s protective instincts, they begin a sexual odyssey that dances on the edge of addiction. Dangerously close to losing control...and losing themselves.

I love Rosanna Leo.  She is absolutely one of the nicest authors I've had the pleasure of getting to know, and I've worked with her quite a bit.  So when the offer for Vice came along, I was more than happy to take it on for review.  I'll be the first to admit - the billionaire and the broke (as in poor) woman is not my favorite plotline.  However, Vice also offers romance by the way of enemies-to-lovers, which I love.   There are also some pretty heavy subjects explored in Vice, so I was a happy reader.

Aflame by Penelope Douglas (Review)

Title: Aflame
Series: Fall Away #4
Author: Penelope Douglas
Released: April 21, 2015 - Penguin
Format: Egalley
Pages: 262 per Goodreads

The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…

Everyone wants to be me.

Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.

I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.

They all still talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?

But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.

Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.

Man, I love this series.  It is undoubtedly one of my favorites.  Penelope Douglas ends it on a perfect note, revisiting Tate and Jared in Aflame, too.  If you haven't read this series, I implore you to.  Seriously - you will not regret it.
