I love love love this series of two. Book 1 left me hanging....book 2 did a great job tying up all those threads and giving me sooooo much more story. What a blast!!!
Thanks Netgalley for gifting me this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Molly O'Keefe was a new to me author in book 2 and a fast favourite now that I have completed book 2.... In a novel that brings me such a well crafted and depth of story also gives me characters who I make me feel everything...fear, anger, angst and confusion. No this is not a feel good story there is too much raw edge to it but not so real that it will scare away those who like to keep that one step back from reality.
In a book that offers you suspense, mystery, romance, grit, bikers, trailer park trash and cancer you feel a love that came from hurt and developed into a healthy forever in this grand contemporary romance that you must not miss. 5 star read and top 5 series of the year for me.

DB Reynolds once again brings us the hottest, toughest Vampire alpha male in the genre. Vampires in America is one of my favourite on going series and DBR keeps it fresh and moving with every novel.
The Vampire Wars is heating up and we have a new battle for Vampire Lord, we also have Vincent and Lana's loose ends from the previous book all tied up...what is not to love? Christian just like all of DBR's alpha heroes is absolutely delicious and we meet two very yummy new vamps in Marco and Alon....I'll call dibs on Alon right now for the future because if DBR doesn't give us more of him I'm gonna fly to SCA and stalk her till she does *grin * ....Natalie I'm not as keen on as I was some of the other heroines in the series...she walks just shy of being TSTL and not as tough as Cyn, Lana and all.
The story is fast paced with something happening every minutes with all the twists and turns we expect from DBR....Love Christian and love Vampires in America....how long til the next book???? huh huh huh???
5 shining stars from a favourite author and the confidence that the next book will be as good as all the previous books! ...Don't miss out on Christian..it is available NOW!

Wow! What a ride!!! A novel that gives you twists, turns, dark moments, funny moments, lustful feelings, nail biting intrigue, steam and a drop dead dark handsome alpha hero. On top of all this a cliffhanger that makes you want to hunt down the author and short sheet her bed.
Sabrina Stark is a new to me author and I think I have fallen in love. Now I must mention I did have book 2 ready to go so the cliffy didn't make me as crazy as it did other readers. I also like to be kept guessing so I enjoyed having to wait for some of my questions to be answered until book 2, it gave me a reason to run out and one click it right away.
Sabrina Stark is a skilled writer who uses a lot of writing techniques to get her message across. In a story line that has some severely dark elements it is laced with humor that had me putting the pillow over my mouth so I wouldn't wake the hubby. Luna was so flaky at times she just made me laugh. However, the way the intrigue is as much a character in the story as the relationship between Jake and Luna was ingenious, the whole of this novel we are asking ourselves questions and just waiting for the answers. SS taunted us with bit and pieces but never gave us enough to actually figure out what exactly was going on. Jaked was more about the building of the relationship between Jake and Luna and taking us back to when they originally met as children. I'm sure book 2 will be more about solving mysteries and answering questions.
I admit it has been a while since I was completely enraptured by a new to me author. Sabrina had me in the palm of her hand throughout the entire book. I can't wait for the next novel...in fact I will dive into it immediately. I have to give this novel a bright 4.25 star rating and a recommendation. If you are looking for something a bit on the different side and yet using familiar elements with a side of grit this is definitely the book for you. Remember if you don't want to get caught by the cliffy have book 2 cued up and ready to go. Now get those fingers one clicking and tell Jake that t'irla sent you!!!

I really enjoyed book one of this series and was grateful to Netgalley for giving me book 2 in exchange for an honest review.
Hard to Break didn't disappoint. The story was very much a coming of age for both characters. Quinn a tomboy who grew-up with a wrench in hand and Tazen a boy from the tough side of town taking his passion and turning it into dollars and fame. Meeting each other in the worse of conditions with none of that insta-love was the trigger to maturity.
I really enjoyed the strong story line that took us through Quinn and Tazen's relationship. I adored the tenacity and fight that Quinn put into keep what was her's and how that grew into more. I liked how Tazen finally let down his walls to allow himself to grow into the man he was meant to be. Great mix of angst, adversity and heat make this a fast read and enjoyable novel.
I found the characters easily to relate to and the story moved quickly keeping me engaged the entire time. I loved the rawness of the story and the bit of darkness that at times wound itself through the storyline. BJ is great at that bit of grit and I'm glad she didn't leave it behind with her bikers.
Overall a totally enjoyable read and I look forward to next novel of the series. 4 rubber burning stars for this novel. If you like tomboys and cars this one is for you!
