Bang by E.K. Blair

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I'm not innocence.
I haven't been for a long time.
My innocence's was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was suppose to have.The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hope and dreams.


 I never even had a choice. I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs. Until now.
I'm ready to take back was always meant to be mine.

 But every plan as a fatal flaw. Sometimes it's the heart.

** Due to dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommend for mature audiences only. **


MIND FUCK! That is what E.K. Blair did to me and not to mention my emotional breakdown I had. My blogger friend Kim can testify to that when I had called her crying my head off. To tell you all my emotions were heighten to the max is an understatement. This book causes:

 PCDD (Post Character Death Depression) symptoms include: sobbing, curling into fetal position, distraction, unfocused vision, constant state of exhaustion, hiding, being unable to communicate, inability to complete simple tasks, refusing to leave dwelling, unreasonable anger or sadness. 

Don't believe me? Well don't say I didn't warn you!

Whew hope that covers it.

In my review there is going to be NO spoilers, I'm just writing how I felt reading Bang, I think that every person should read it for themselves with spoilers.

Let's get down to the nitty gritty truth and what my opinion was about Bang.

I bought this book not really knowing the actual story but as soon as I saw the book trailer I knew it was going to be a dark read. I was not prepared to read it, this is a hard read and even if I did try to mentally prepare myself, it would've still shock the hell out of me. The last time I had this reaction from a book this intense was 4 years ago, it's a whole new level of shock to where it's going to leave you devastated and reading nonstop and asking yourself, "What the Fuck was that?" Even while writing this review I'm trying hard not to cry, Blair's writing was excellent and pulled me into her book.

Now I will say if you decide to read it please be advise it's not everyone's cup of tea. I'm still thinking how the hell did E.K.Blair write this book without going mentally insane, because I almost checked myself into the insane asylum.

                                                                I give Bang by E.K. Blair

Burn by Callie Hart


I'm not safe.

I haven't been safe for awhile.

I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is a danger himself. With Julio on one side, and the leader of the Widow Makers MC on the other, the smartest thing to do would be to run. I've been running long enough, though.

This is the closest I've come to finding my sister in two years.
I can't back down now.


My right hand man is being tortured in the basement.

The guy who tried to buy Sloane's virginity is burning rubber in our direction.

My psychotic boss is on a mission to find me, and the girl I'm supposed to be keeping safe has landed herself right in the middle of all this.

Just another breezy weekend in Californian desert.

What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours?


Okay so for starters, when I started reading Burn, I was confused on who was who and which way was up from down. I jumped into to this by signing up for the ARC and didn't know anything from the author or her books, but that's the beauty of it because I fell in love with this awesome book! Yes I went back and got Deviant (which is FREE on Amazon by the way) and bought Fracture so I could catch up on this awesome series.

 Callie Hart did a awesome job on the writing but was a bit disappointed that it was a short read. My review is going to be short only because I'm still a little lost, but once I start reading Deviant and Fracture I'll come back and change it to a longer review..

So from what I can get is that Burn takes off from where Fracture finished and Holy Moly if the other two books are anything like this one then I'm in for a awesome ride!

Zeth is hot, cocky, dangerous, alpha male and oh boy I can't seem to get enough of him!

Sloane seems to be holding her own on this book, especially after that stunt she pulled on Zeth with the gun was wow! lol

I don't want to giveaway any of the story because you just need to read it without any spoilers and experience the surprising  twist for yourself. This book was epic and your mind will be blown!

One thing I can say is that the ending took me by surprise, I was glued to the last few pages and couldn't believe what the hell just happened. This book is a MUST read, go 1-Click it now, you will not regret it!

I Give Callie Hart

Inked Armor by Helena hunting

In this follow-up to Clipped Wings, the emotional love story continues between Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

In the wake of losing Tenley Page, tattooist Hayden Stryker's tumultuous past is haunting him. Plagued by nightmares about the murder of his parents, Hayden reaches out again to Tenley. Having run from the man she doesn't believe she deserves, Tenley finally lays her guilt to rest. Despite their intense physical attraction, Hayden and Tenley struggle to repair their fragile emotional connection. As Hayden gets closer to the truth, he must find a way to reconcile his guilt over his parents' death in order to keep the woman who finally cracked his armor, and found her way into his heart.


This book is very dear to my heart, Helena Hunting has come a long way since Fan Fiction and weekly updates. I can't express how proud I am of her!

Inked Armor is the second installment of the Clipped Wings Series. This time around it's a lot more emotional between Hayden and Tenley because their feeling are striped bare with everything out in the open.

Because of Tenley's abrupter leaving, Hayden's nightmares of his parents murder come back full force and has him feeling empty and devastated. Their separation isn't to long, but there are lots of trials and tribulations on getting their relationship back.

Hayden doesn't trust that Tenley won't run away again and she has to face the fact that she deserves his love and will help him see that he can trust her again. As if that isn't enough, all of Hayden's nightmares from his parents being murdered are resurfacing, and begins to question everything. They go through so much emotional pain and come out of this storm together.

Helena Hunting writes this beautiful story on heart break, devastation, tragedy, trust issues, love and learning to cope to move on. You will fall in love with Hayden and Tenley all over again and let's not forget you will also crave cupcakes through out this book. :D

This book is a MUST READ! If you love anything with tattoos, piercings, kittens, angst, smut and cupcakes then this is your book!

I Give Inked Armor

Moster in His Eyes by J.M. Darhower

Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.

I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I'm thinking before I even do.

It's alarming and alluring. It's dark and deadly. It's everything I ever wanted but last thing I truly need. Obsession.

It doesn't take me long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it's too late. He has secrets, secrets I can't fathom, secrets that make it so I can't walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that's both terrifying and thrilling. He's a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.

I want to hate him.

Sometimes, I do.

But it doesn't stop me from loving him, too.


Holy Moly.... J.M. Darhower left me speechless and with a HUGE book hangover! My emotions were all over the place with this book, but one thing is certain... READ IT!!! I curled up in a ball crying just because I felt like I was mind fucked, and when I say mind fuck, I really meant it! I loved, hated, loved, and hated it again but no matter what, you keep going back because you can't help it. Oh yeah, I love me some May to December romance and if you can't deal with that then this book isn't for you.

JM has this way of writing that give you goosebumps and falling in love with the characters. I loved the pace in which it has you reading. You got to know the characters the first 70% of the story then... BAM! Lots of shit started happening and secrets came out of the dark.

Karissa is a 18 year old college student that falls for a older man.
Ignazio Vitale is strong, fearless, intimidating, and mysterious.

All she craves is a stable and normal life but once Naz is in the picture her life becomes stable and normal until she see's him for what he truly is... a monster. By then it's to late because she loves him and hates him just as equally.

But he also has that side of him that only Karissa see's... loving, caring, and treats her like the queen she is. I think the books pace is excellent, not to rushed but it also doesn't drag out. While your reading, it has you on the edge on your seat the whole time just waiting to see when the shit is going to hit the

Naz's feeling's for Karissa are very intense and you feel it more as you read on. I will warn you guys, it's kinda left with a cliffie but book 2 is coming in the Fall.

Go and get this book now!
