Blog Tour & Giveaway: Hells Knights and Heaven’s Sinners (The MC Sinners #1 & 2) by Bella Jewel


HELL’S KNIGHTS SYNOPSIS

Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we’ve all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I’ve had sex. Heck, I’ve felt lust. Once, I’ve even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.
Until I met Cade.
He’s the meaning of sex.
He’s a biker.
He’s dangerous.
He’s powerful.
He’s dominant.
He wants me.
My world is about to change, for the better? I don’t know. But here’s my story, I hope you’re ready for it because it’s not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It’s passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

 

REVIEWS

Warning: There are scenes of drug abuse, torture, rape, attempted suicide and extreme violence in this book.

Holy Shit! This is an intense story that will have you riveted from the very beginning. I picked up the book and finished it in one sitting. I could NOT put it down!
Addison’s story is gut-wrenching, heart-breaking and yet full of hope and promise. Addison has not had an easy life and that’s an understatement. She was abandoned by her dad at age 4, her mother is a drugged out whore whose pimp rapes Addison on a regular basis. The fact that Addison is relatively normal is a testament to her strength physically, emotionally and psychologically.
Cade is a badass biker whose history is sad and full of pain. He rude, crude and socially unacceptable! But once he meets Addison, all that rudeness and crudeness gets focused on Addison. He wants Addison and he’ll do anything to get her!
Addison is running for her life. She runs to her dad thinking he never wanted her. She runs thinking she can start over. She runs to find a new future. But things are not always what they seem. People aren’t what she thinks and she learns to trust and lean on others.
I loved Addison and Cade. They were wonderful together. He pushes her and she pushes right back. Add on top of all that Alpha-Male Badassness going on, the awesome sex and steamy connection to get one hell of a story that will keep you up!

But be warned. It’s not pretty. There’s no flowers, no candy and no romantic dates. It’s just down and dirty. 

Addison has had a shit life to put it mildly.  She has done things to survive that most women would rather die than go through.  Her mom is a whore and an addict.  She has suffered so much.  Her father is the President of the Hell’s Knights and hasn’t been in her life since she was a little girl.  She is running from something but doesn’t share with her father or anyone else in the club all that is her past.  What Addison doesn’t know is that trouble is just around the corner waiting. 

Cade is the Vice President of the Hell’s Knights and he is one sexy as sin biker.  He clashes with Addison from the moment she walks into the compound, but they have this chemistry that can’t be denied.  When they come together the sparks fly.  I loved how protective of Addison he got when he learned just a small bit of the hell she went through growing up.  He is as stubborn as a mule at times but I loved that about him.
Holy shit the sex between these two could set fire to your reading device especially their first time.  There is such an intense heat between them that, and when they both make mistakes, it is like adding gasoline to a blazing inferno.  These two are perfect for each other in more ways than one.  These two can heal each other and help to keep the demons away.
You get to see Addison’s past a lot throughout the book.  I really liked how the author did that, it makes you have a better picture in your mind of what she went through.  I would have loved to have some chapters in Cade’s POV, especially when he is first meeting Addison.
Hell’s Knights is the first book in the MC Sinners series and it is a good start.  You are introduced to some of the members of the Hell’s Knights as well as some from another MC.  If Ms. Jewel does this series correctly it will be one that fans of biker books will enjoy.  I look forward to book 2 to see how she is going to hook readers into falling for these bikers.

Spike knows tragedy, he knows that feelings are better left hidden. He refuses to put his heart out there again, it’s a pain he’s not willing to ever let himself feel. He’s got a mission. He’s got a goal. Nothing is going to get in his way. He will seek his revenge.
But then there’s Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife. She’s beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won’t hear of it, and Ciara refuses to give up.
Who will win the battle of wills?


REVIEW

Spike, the President of Heaven’s Sinners, has suffered a loss that he blames himself for and can’t seem to forgive himself.  When his wife died not only was he dealing with the loss, he was also dealing with her sister Ciara and her parents blaming him as well.  He has shut down emotionally and doesn’t ever want to love anyone again, or does he?  Spike and Ciara used to be best friends, until Spike broke her heart and friendship one night.  I felt bad for Spike on so many levels.  He lost his wife, his unborn child, and his best friend.  Ciara blamed him for a long time for her sister’s death, but she finally came to terms and tried to mend the past but Spike kept pushing her away and would be a complete and utter asshole to her, which was understandable.  Spike needed to work through his issues and not only accept forgiveness but to forgive himself as well. 

Ciara regrets how she treated Spike after her sister’s death and just wants to make things right again between her and Spike.  They were once best friends, what he didn’t know was that she wanted him for her own but was scared to lose the friendship that they had in order to move forward in their relationship.  When you read about what happened between them, it made me want to slap Spike across his spikes (read the book and you will find out what I mean) because damn it he ruined so much when he did that. 

When these two finally get together holy shit!   Spike, omg Spike, you my man are one smoking hot as hell biker.  There is a reason why his nickname is Spike and I for one would love to have firsthand knowledge of why he is called Spike.  The connection that they share is one that has been damaged and now is stringer once it was repaired.  

For me Heaven’s Sinners was a more intense emotional read than Hell’s Knights but it was still a kick ass book.  Guilt, broken friendships, unknown love, forgiveness and finding the path back to your other half of your heart are what this book is about.  In my review for Hell’s Knights I stated that I hoped Ms. Jewel would do this series right and if so she would have a great series in the works.  In my opinion, she has.  I would recommend this series to my family and friends to read for sure.  I can’t wait to see whose book will be next.

Review: Razer’s Ride by Jamie Begley

Beth Cornett is the town good girl.  Staying out of the way of the motorcycle club’s dangerous members was a no brainer. Unfortunately, she manages to catch the eye of Razer, who has every intention of tempting her to take him on despite her misgivings. When her worst fears are realized, she is left heartbroken, determined to forget her walk on the wild side.

Razer was not going to change for any woman, not even Beth. Their lifestyles were too different; betrayed she ran. Realizing his mistake too late; she was not about to forgive and forget. It takes a killer intent on targeting Beth to bring her back to him and The Last Riders for protection. Razer may have learned his lesson, but this time, as long as she is at the club, she has to play by their rules.

Beth is a good Christian woman.  She takes care of her adopted sister and won’t let anything hurt her, not anymore that is.  Beth’s pastor father made her believe when she was growing up that everything would lead her to hell if she didn’t behave at all times, but secretly she wanted to rebel and did in small amounts but nothing too over the top.  When she sees The Last Riders ride by her she knows that she shouldn’t be scared but at times acts like she can’t get to safety quick enough.  However, when she encounters Razer, there is just something about him that she is drawn too.
Beth did tend to get on my nerves at times when she would act very judgmental towards the women of the club or the guys too.  Her sheltered life made her apprehensive about a lot of things that she saw. 
Razer, what can I say about him besides he is a man whore who doesn’t want to settle down ever, loves the sexual freedom the club provides and he participates frequently with all the sexual acts that go on.  He straight up tells Beth that no woman will ever control his dick, and man does he prove his point in the worst way.  He hurts Beth big time, then basically doesn’t even care.  Razer knows deep down he screwed up, but being a typical male does he try to fix things right away?  Nope, not Mr. Man Whore.  He waits, and he finally works his way back into her life and her into his bed. 
Good God Damn he is hot in bed.  When everything finally seems like Razer will change and want a true relationship with Beth, what does he do?  Yep you guessed it, he fucks up again!  Now personally ladies, if I was Beth, good Christian woman or not, Razer would have been needing penis reattachment surgery for his latest stunt, but that’s just what I would do.  Or maybe a good Carrie Underwood Before He Cheats moment would be appropriate here hmmmm.  Anyways I shall move on.  When Razer’s eyes are opened about Beth’s past he fears that she will never forgive him or take him back, the entire club learns about what has happened and it effects them all.
Beth, while still timid has changed.  Some of her new biker babe friends help bring her out of her depression about Razer.  I especially loved Crazy Bitch.  Could be that her crazy ass reminds me of me but we won’t go there.  When Razer gets Beth alone and they are able to work everything out, I was like thank you lord he finally has pulled his head out of his ass.  It’s his tattoo that sealed it for me. 

I enjoyed this book.  I think that it will be a good start to a new series that has the potential of being great if written write.  I love biker books, some of my favorites are not your typical happily ever after ones either, but raw and rough and full of heart break, and Razer’s Ride is one of those types for sure.

Review: Unbeautifully by Madeline Sheehan

“No sooner met but they looked,
No sooner looked but they loved,
No sooner loved but they sighed,
No sooner sighed but they
Asked one another the reason,
No sooner knew the reason
But they sought the remedy…”
-William Shakespeare
I don’t believe in fate. I firmly believe that life is what you make of it, that life will react to your actions and that your final destination has nothing to do with destiny but instead everything to do with the choices you make along the way.
With one exception.
Love.
Silence. That is all that surrounds me once I finished reading the last page of UnBeautifully because….
1.) It is 2:00a.m. in the fucking morning.
2.) My whole being is so damn full of emotions that I fear that if I should cry, shout, run around naked playing the trombone and profess my undying loyalty and love for Madeline in such a sweet vulgar way, that I will be pimping new bracelets which would be provided by the lovely local law enforcements.
Wow! Son of a motherless goat that was fanfuckin’ragingcrazyBLOWMYMINDtastic!! (Yes that is all one word!)
UnBeautifully was Beautifully written and done so perfectly well that I am pronouncing Madeline as a fucking GENUIS! A Beautiful, loving, sexy, crazy, Russian looking, Queen of Vulgaria GENUIS!!
I’m not going to go on about the storyline because I truly…TRULY feel like I just can’t do it justice and knowing my fucking luck I will put a spoiler in there and have y’all kicking and probably murdering my ass. So I will say this…
UnB picks up where UnD leaves off and if y’all wanted more raw, real, angst, love and heartache then y’all are going to cream y’alls breeches because Mad delivers big time. UnB will have you laughing your fucking ass off, heart bursting with love, heart shattering when *** and *** happens, shocked because *** & *** have something going on, wanting to kick some major ass on ***, crying and hoping that *** & *** will be okay.
All the characters are fucking amazing (even the crazy ass character ***. Straight up cray cray!). We not only get Ripper and Danny’s story but others as well. I am so looking forward to Cage and Tegen’s book (is it ready RC?) and I so wish Kami and Cox were real and had their own reality show because I would so watch that shit.
If UnDeniable didn’t leave you having biker lust/fever than I can promise you this…you will have it so fucking bad after UnBeautifully.
*I am tempted to get Mad’s face tattooed on my back with her name going around my neck. And instead of tears tattooed on my face, I will get mini shanks. One with the initials UFG & the other with RC with a Hello Kitty design.*
Until next time…assjuice guzzlers
Happy Reading 🙂
Lovingly,

UFG!!

ARC Review: Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley

I’m conflicted about this book. I’m having a hard time deciding what to write about it. I enjoyed the book and thought it was a good story. However there were some things I would have liked to have seen more of.
Shy and Tabby are a great couple. They’ve been dancing around each other for years before they FINALLY got it together!
Tabby is the daughter of Tack, the president of the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Shy has been part of that club for almost 10 years. They’ve known each other for quite a while.
Tabby has crushed on Shy since she was 16. When she was 19 they had HUGE blowup. Shy found out that night exactly what he was missing out on.
Over the next several years they avoided each other, barely spoke and became virtual strangers. Then Tabby’s life is torn apart. Shy ends up being there for her. He becomes her best friend, her rock, her safe haven.
Once the finally become an item, things don’t go that smooth. Their lives are in turmoil, some of it from Chaos, some of it from them, and some from Tabby’s friend Natalie. They fight through and stay true to each other.
Shy lives his life the way he wants. He takes care of Tabby and doesn’t let her take any crap from anyone. Tabby is fierce. She stands up to Shy and doesn’t let him walk all over him. They fight, they argue, the compromise, they make up. They’re awesome together!
While I really enjoyed the story of Tabby and Shy, I was hoping for something a bit more raw and gritty. I guess that was my expectation from a story about a couple in a Motorcycle Club.  I would have liked more action from the war with Benito they got sucked into, or maybe we’re going to see more of that in the next books.

Review: Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde

Code
Honor
Loyalty
Three words that describe heroes of the modern world. But what if those words also described a man who walked on the wrong side of the law? A man who lived by his own code, his own honor and was loyal to a group of men who were so far over the line of the law, the line was nowhere in site? What if that man made you feel safe, cherished and wanted you all to himself? What then?
Marie’s brother Jeff made a huge mistake. He started working for the Reapers then he stole from them. When they found they went after him with a vengeance. Marie was given a choice, go with Horse and be his or Jeff would die. Marie would have to give everything to Horse, her freedom, her body. All she had to do now was hope Jeff came up with the money to pay them back. Then, maybe, she could go free.
HOLY HOT HELL BATMAN! This is one intense, angst filled, hot romance with some hot sex. Some of that sex is sweet and some of it angry sex, but all of it is HOT HOT HOT!
I felt so bad for Marie. She was stuck with a brother who she loved, but ended up putting her in danger. She paid with her body. While things did turn out well for her, it was not an easy road to haul. I was amazed she stood up to Horse. He was hot but scary. Marie made some difficult choices and stood by those decisions even when it was hard. She did it for her brother.

The romance between Horse and Marie was unconventional at best and torturous at worst. I felt so bad for both them. Marie didn’t understand Horse’s world and he couldn’t….wouldn’t do conventional romance for her. But in his own way, he showed her he cared. She just couldn’t understand his ways. 

Joanna Wylde did an amazing job of showing how life with an outlaw motorcycle gang was not glamorous but it was a choice people made. They weren’t perfect, but they were family and they stood by each other. She showed how hard that life is and how filled with danger it is.
This was my first book by Joanna Wylde and I can’t wait to read more. Holy Hot Hell Batman! Bring on the bad-boys!
