Children Of Vice by JJ McAvoy ...Review by Dawn


Children of Vice by [McAvoy, J.J.]



From the Ruthless, Vice shall Rise.


I, Ethan Antonio Giovanni Callahan, first son of the former head of the Irish mob, Liam Alec Callahan, and former head of the Italian mafia, ex-governor, Melody Nicci Giovanni Callahan, solemnly swear to ruthlessly protect our family name, business and way of life, no matter the cost to me or anyone else. I shall show no mercy; I shall offer no forgiveness; there will be no peace for those who stand against me.



I will live for my family.
I will kill for my family.
I will marry for my family.



I, Ivy O'Davoren, the only daughter of Shay O'Davoren, solemnly swear to ruthlessly and mercilessly exact revenge on the Callahans and all those who betrayed my father and family. 



I will live for revenge.
I will kill for revenge.
I will marry for revenge.



You devoured the Ruthless People series. Now it’s time to revel in the reign of the Callahan children…






My Review

First off let's talk about this author. JJ McAvoy writes beyond her years. Her voice is something that is missing in this saturated industry. Her characters are deep, and filled with so much richness, I am often rendered speechless. This is a spin off of her amazing Ruthless People series, The Children of Vice is Ethan's story. In reality it is the beginning of what I am positive is going to be her best story telling yet.
I never thought someone could take Melody's place and Ivy is not trying to, but she sure is giving Mel a run for her money. Ivy is smart and cunning, I like her and am excited to see more of her and to see her go up against, someone in the family. 
Ethan, he just makes me happy. He takes his position very seriously and I love that! He was born and raised to lead "the family." He is strong but can be brought to his knees when it comes to Ivy. He has tried his entire life to not let anyone have that sort of "power" over him. But when it comes to Ivy, the girl he has loved his entire life, he is weak. That is not good when you are head of the Irish/Italian Mob. Ethan is everything his parents would want in a son and a Ruthless leader.
We get to catch up with most of the Callahan clan's children and see what they are up to . I love that they are still in the picture as this is the next generation. Evelyn is still vital and I cracked up when she laid it all out for Ivy. We see that Dona and Wyatt are not exactly the people we thought they were. Wyatt is the outcast, choosing to help people by becoming a doctor. But was it really his choice? And Donatella, well she is dealing with "the family" the way she was taught. Always keep an eye on everything and everyone and never miss an opportunity to better one's position.   
To the very last page Children of Vice is brilliant! I am more than excited to see where Ms. McAvoy takes us in the next two books.

Buns: The Hudson Valley Series by Alice Clayton....Review by Dawn







Synopsis

Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.




Review

I have read the two previous books in this series Nuts and Cream of the Crop, which I just loved! Buns, well it fell a little flat for me.  
I remember in the other stories I cracked up and laughed so much. This story did have it's humorous moments, but I found that most of those occurred when Roxie and Natalie were around. Clara and Archie had chemistry, and I loved that the arguing let to love and some pretty implosive heavy making out. Again, it lacked in the sexiness for me.
The picture that Ms. Clayton painted was stunning. I could picture the Bryant Mountain Home perfectly. I really loved Clara being dedicated to her work and her love for helping these businesses that hired her. Archie was so funny when he let go. I loved his stuffy buttoned up structured type, playing off of Clara's bossy nature. That was for me, what worked best in this book. 
Clara's past was present every waking moment and sometimes it felt a bit suffocating. BUT, understandable her life was not easy and it haunted her. Much like Archie's haunted him. I really enjoyed that he was willing to let go and take the next step only to be met with Clara running.... again. 
I was hoping for more fun, and there is some, just not what I am use to from Ms. Clayton.  I honestly can not remember if Clara ever did taste the Hot Cross Buns, I'm not sure if that was an oversight on my part or if it never happened.   

I received an ARC for my honest review

James Caldo needs to control everything in his life, even his wife, Izzy Gallo. But she’s headstrong and has a need to test her husband’s limits as much as he pushes hers. When a case at ALFA Private Investigation takes a dark turn, James is forced to get Izzy involved in an undercover sting, and the assignment will test her sexual boundaries as well as the very foundation of their relationship. Can Izzy hold her tongue long enough to keep them both safe? Or will her unwillingness to fully submit draw the eye of the very man they’re after?



Review

Ahh, it was just like going home and visiting my favorite "not real but real in my head" family. James and Izzy, it ws so much fun catching up with them and HOLY HOTNESS! James never disappoints to deliver the sexiness. 

The story picks years later and you know how marriages are, the highs and lows, and that is where we find The Clado's . Not that they do not love each other, it's that point where the kids are needy and attentions get diverted. So when this case happens upon ALFA Investigations, James needs a submissive to work the case and we all know Izzy isn't going to let that happen. So of course James asks his wife to go undercover with him. Boundaries are tested and it is SMOKIN' HOT. I would have loved a little more drama involving the case, but the story still has a strong foundation. 

Izzy and her "sister" still make this series for me. When they all get together the hilarity ensues. When Izzy is looking for a new artist to join the shop and the ladies find out that her intent is to hire a female, I laughed so hard. The familial bond these women have makes me somewhat jealous and it's s BOOK! That takes talent of the author to make the reader long to be included.

At one point I thought I was going to have to hop on a plane and hunt down Ms. Bliss. When there is a cancer scare and who it happens to... I was not going to allow Ms. Bliss to do it, nope, not happening. She chose wisely. I know if this series is to continue someone is bound to die, I know this, but I do NOT accept it. The Gallo family is my favorite literary family and I need them to stay in tact.
Izzy is her normal hot head self and James is the only one who can tame her but can he tame her long enough to keep her safe?

Bombshell by CD Reiss 
This was my first CD Reiss book and I enjoyed it. 

I felt the story went along nicely and was for the most part an easy enjoyable read. Brad, the movie star rode the fence for me. I was not sure I liked him or I hated him. He never grew on me. The distance he kept from his daughter was not flattering, but getting her just dropped into his lap after 6 years would can make one a little freaked out. I didn't like that he never addressed the way his assistant and PR people called her "The Bombshell." I get it, its the title, but that would last about 3 or 4 times with me. Also, to me "The Bombshell" was the fact that his team knew about the child from the beginning and basically hid it from Brad. Where Brad did get to my heart was when it was revealed he suffered from dyslexia. It tugged on my heart that he was so proud of his daughter for her ability to read at age 6. I LOVED that actually. 
Cara, I liked her. She was so good with  Nichole and with Brad she was trying to keep him on track, that was her job as nanny. Cara, was not boring, but not that exciting either. I wanted more from her past, we get glimpses and there are some whopper reveals, but I wanted more from her. 
NOW Nichole, she is EVERYTHING. She is a smart little girl and I could totally see this little girl that was played out on the pages . She was sassy without being a brat. She was smart, but a believable sort of smart. She just wanted to be loved and she so deserved it. Bravo on writing a brilliant character.
I am curious as to what is to come in the series and will read them.

Lost Rider by Harper Sloan


SWEET JESUS, I HAVE BEEN REVIVED
AND MY SAVIOR IS HARPER SLOAN!!!

I have been in a book funk for the last 3 weeks, which is bad news for a blogger. Nothing was keeping my attention or even peaking my interest. I received Lost Rider as an ARC via Netgalley, which was good for me. Meaning I had to read it and be done before the book went into archive status. So, here I went in, thinking "I hope this snaps my readers block." Well, people I am so happy to spread the word, Lost Rider saved me! I feel renewed and washed clean of the horrid readers funk.

Ok, I am a Texas transplant, born a Yankee, but got to Texas as fast as I could. I've been here for 17 years so I feel like I can speak to the authentic feel this story has. Oh and yes, I am married to a Cowboy who happens to be an Communication Engineer,  my neighbors rodeo, we live on a ranch... I GOT THIS.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I am seriously in love with the writing. It is so readable and believable. I have read may stories that make speaking with a drawl or using "Texas dialect" makes everything sound so hick or just wrong. This was enough to get the point across, but not belittle the people speaking. I will say, the word "darlin'" was used a lot, but my husband calles me "babe" all the freaking time, so who am I to judge? I have never really read a "Cowboy book" before and well, I am not actively seeking them out. 

Maverick ( I mean, come on that is an AWESOME name for a bull rider!) and Leighton, are my new "It" couple. They have so much chemistry it explodes off the pages. Whether it is their fighting or their passion, it just ignites and you feel every bit of it. This story has a bit of back and forth from the past and present, but it is not much and it only adds to the history of Mav and Leigh, which is long and heartbreaking. They have only ever loved each other, but sometimes that love has to be put on hold. When your survival is threatened daily, you do what you have to do to live, even if it means a piece of you feels like it is dying.

You not only get this amazing leading couple, the supporting characters are equally as important. Clay and Quinn are Maverick's siblings and they play an important roll in the lives of our leads. Their pasts are so filled with loss, hurt, and a longing to be loved . Each of the characters are dealing with it in their own way or avoiding it all together. This series only intrigues me more now and I am dying, yes, dying to get my grabby hand on those books!
I feel the potential for this series is HUGE. We all know Harper, can write a mean leading male and some seriously HOT scenes and people... THIS IS SMOKIN' HOT.  I love that Leighton is no shrinking violet. She wants her man and make no mistake, she will have him! I laughed and loved every word of this book. 

GO SEEK OUT THIS AMAZING STORY NOW! 
Loved it so much, I gave it 6 CLOCKS!



Ends Here by M.Robinson

So, I spent last weekend reading both Road to Nowhere and Ends Here. I waited because I had seen that RTN was a cliffhanger and well, I do not do cliffy's.  TO be honest that was a lot of angst in a matter of 48 hours. I normally read something lighter in between my "rip my heart out" books.

True to form Author M. Robinson gives you a gut wrenching, pulse pounding story. We get to see who Mia ends up with Noah or Creed, and we are taken on a heartbreaking journey. I will have to say that for me I preferred Road to Nowhere over Ends Here. For me, book 2 has so much going on that I was left feeling like I must have missed something. When things happen to Mia, and believe me there are plenty of things that go wrong for this poor girl. I had a hard time believing, that her father and "Uncles" never followed Creed out to the safe house, not once thinking to do that. I was sure since they all thought he was guilty, they would have a man on him.  I am trying not to give away any of the details, because I want you to experience them for your self. I will say that the fall out after the birth of her child, went on a bit long for my taste.

I did really like Creed, he is just such an amazing leading man! He is the man we all longed for and he lived up to all our expectations. I liked that he was a man on a mission. I loved that he has this tender side that only Mia was aware of. I loved his devotion to his family, even if his brother was after his girl. He was committed to his club, but not so much that he would put up with things set in motion a long time ago.The most satisfying "revenge or justice served" part in this story was AWESOME!  I absolutely loved that there was no fixing it or apologizing. IT WAS DONE. So many players were involved and I was a bit scattered for a minute, but I quickly got my wits about me and was thrilled with the ending of this book. Never one to disappoint, M. Robinson comes through again.
4 Clocks  for Ends Here



Irreplaceable by Dani Lovell

Oh this story! It immediately takes you back to think about the one who got away. Whether that is a sad memory or a lovely place to visit, it transports you back.
When I was reading this story I was so captivated by the detail. Most of the time I am not a fan of lots 
of details, but this one it worked so well. The vivid picture Ms. Lovell painted of this gorgeous setting had me longing to take a holiday.
Bear by the way, I loved that his name was Ted, brilliant! He was so likable, so not how I expected him to be. Most musicians are portrayed as these careless, party animals and they are hard for me to like, not Bear.  I really loved the respect he had for Blanca.  Most couples who break up are ugly to one another, but that was not the case in this story. The author made our leads mature and I so greatly appreciated that.
Blanca you could say was hung up on Bear, but not in a way that she could not go on. She tried to but, he was always in the back of her mind, no one ever quite measured up. After a failed attempt at dating, she goes away with a coworker and low and behold, she ends up in the same location as Bear. The chemistry these two had once they decided to just go with it, was palpable. Blanca wanted answers as to what was going to happen when the trip was over, but would asking put too much pressure on Bear? Would history repeat it's self and once again send Bear and Blanca in different directions?
I really enjoyed this book and once again Author Dani Lovell writes a beautiful story, winning our hearts.

Irreplaceable, A Twisted Silk Novel by Author Dani Lovell ..... Review by Dawn




Their love was doomed from the start. Musician Bear, revered, free-spirited and a confirmed commitment-phobe, and Blanca, a headstrong girl-next-door with her future mapped out in her heart and mind. Their love was unparalleled, but it wasn’t enough to save their tumultuous relationship.

Years later, fate plays its hand. Through a string of chance encounters, their simmering desires are reignited, leading to a hot, steamy, never-to-be-forgotten adventure.

Sparks fly and passion reigns, so can they exorcise the demons that kept them apart? Will they avoid yet another love-calamity to prove that they are, to each other, irreplaceable?

Bombshell (Hollywood A- List book 1 by CD Reiss ... Review by Dawn



Bombshell (Hollywood A-List Book 1) by [Reiss, CD]


Hollywood bad boy Brad Sinclair always gets his way, whether it’s the role he wants or the bikini-clad model he has to have. But when a bombshell gets dropped in his lap in the form of a dimpled five-year-old from a forgotten relationship, he knows his life is about to change forever.
Cara DuMont isn’t exactly thrilled when she gets assigned to be the nanny for the latest box-office king. She has one rule: no celebrity fathers, especially single ones with devilish good looks and rock-hard abs.
But as soon as Cara meets Brad and his adorable little girl, she knows she’s in for a world of trouble. Because there’s something about the way Brad looks at her that makes her believe that some rules are meant to be broken…

About EASY NIGHTS (Boudreaux Series #6):

The Boudreaux Series—Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

No one said change was easy…

Savannah Boudreaux knows what it is to hurt. To bleed. To be afraid that the man she’s promised to be true to until “death do us part” might in fact separate them far sooner than anyone had ever anticipated. But Van also knows what it is to survive. To move on. To live life to the fullest. With five brothers and sisters and a loving mother as her constant source of strength during the pain and the healing, Van realizes there is little else she needs.

But some things never change…

Benjamin Preston sat on the sidelines of the Boudreaux family for years, in love with a woman he couldn’t have. As the best friend of the Boudreaux brothers since childhood, Ben has seen both tragedies and joys in the family. And as a former MMA fighter and KravMaga expert, Ben’s used to fighting for what he wants—and winning. His hands were tied when Savannah married her high school sweetheart not long after graduation, but now two years have passed since Ben found Savannah broken in her own home.

Sometimes what you need most has been right in front of you the whole time…

Van’s convinced that happiness isn’t in the cards for her, no matter how right it feels to be in Ben’s strong arms—and his bed. Ben is determined to win her heart and fight for her trust. He’s promised to protect her, to be her friend. But more than anything, he wants to finally make her his, and this is one fight he’s not willing to lose.

Oh and yes, I am married to a Cowboy who happens to be an Communication Engineer,  my neighbors rodeo, we live on a ranch... I GOT THIS.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I am seriously in love with the writing. It is so readable and believable. I have read may stories that make speaking with a drawl or using "Texas dialect" makes everything sound so hick or just wrong. This was enough to get the point across, but not belittle the people speaking. I will say, the word "darlin'" was used a lot, but my husband calles me "babe" all the freaking time, so who am I to judge? I have never really read a "Cowboy book" before and well, I am not actively seeking them out. 

Maverick ( I mean, come on that is an AWESOME name for a bull rider!) and Leighton, are my new "It" couple. They have so much chemistry it explodes off the pages. Whether it is their fighting or their passion, it just ignites and you feel every bit of it. This story has a bit of back and forth from the past and present, but it is not much and it only adds to the history of Mav and Leigh, which is long and heartbreaking. They have only ever loved each other, but sometimes that love has to be put on hold. When your survival is threatened daily, you do what you have to do to live, even if it means a piece of you feels like it is dying.

You not only get this amazing leading couple, the supporting characters are equally as important. Clay and Quinn are Maverick's siblings and they play an important roll in the lives of our leads. Their pasts are so filled with loss, hurt, and a longing to be loved . Each of the characters are dealing with it in their own way or avoiding it all together. This series only intrigues me more now and I am dying, yes, dying to get my grabby hand on those books!
I feel the potential for this series is HUGE. We all know Harper, can write a mean leading male and some seriously HOT scenes and people... THIS IS SMOKIN' HOT.  I love that Leighton is no shrinking violet. She wants her man and make no mistake, she will have him! I laughed and loved every word of this book. 

GO SEEK OUT THIS AMAZING STORY NOW! 
Loved it so much, I gave it 6 CLOCKS!
