After reading the blurb...I was intrigued!!!

Book 1 of 7 did not disappoint... I was hooked from the very beginning. 
LP Lovell & Stevie J Cole writing is flawless and powerful...they, left me hungry for more. It also left me with questions that I NEED answers too!!!
Damn these men are hot...What would I do if I was in Ella's situation? What would you do if you were in her situation?

Ella is about to loose everything, so when she is invited to a meeting with Tobias she jumps at the chance. This Job could be her saving grace

However....

The meeting doesn't quiet go as planned.
This is not for a general 9-5 job with a monthly salary.

What she is offered is...

1 week, 7 days and 1 million dollars and a shit tone of rules.

2 men, 1 woman

With the ink dried on the contract, Ella still doesn't know what she has really signed up for, but boy is she already reaping the rewards!!!

With his tatted muscular body, ebony hair, and green eyes, he is a magnet to women. Never turning away a sexy body, he indulges in casual sex, but nothing more. For him, defending his brotherhood and protecting his teenage daughter are foremost. Falling in love and being in a long term relationship don’t even make it on his list.

Desire flares through him, and he’s drawn to her in a way that angers him. He doesn’t have time for a woman, but he can’t get the feisty, spirited caseworker out of his mind. He wants to run his callused fingers through her hair. He wants to crush his mouth to hers He wants to devour her. But she resists him. No woman has ever resisted him. When he looks into her eyes, he sees the depths of sorrow and a spark of passion. She’s touched him. He’s never wanted a woman as much as he wants her. And he always gets what he wants…no matter what. From the moment Breanna Quine laid eyes on the rugged biker, her body betrayed her. And when she spotted the outlaw’s MC patch on his leather jacket, her blood turned to ice. Hating bikers since her father gave up his family for the brotherhood, Breanna swore to never be around them again. Then the captivating Night Rebels President’s blazing, green-eyed gaze catches hers, and she is drawn to him like a moth is to fire. But she can’t let herself fall for him, no matter how much her body buzzes whenever she is near him. As hard as she tries to fight her attraction to the dark, dangerous man, her resistance is weakening. Then when she sees his tenderness toward his daughter, it melts her heart. She has to keep reminding herself that he’s not only a biker, but he’s the worst kind—an outlaw. Steel has his hands full trying to figure out who is supplying drugs to the teens of Alina, Colorado. Time is running out for him as danger comes knocking at his door threatening to destroy his family and the woman whom he has vowed to make his own. Can two independent people put their past behind them in order to come together? Will they fight for love against the shadows and the danger that lurks all around them, threatening to destroy them forever?

I loved this book. The story was great and the authors writing sucked me in from the very beginning. This story was Raw and Emotional. We all love a hot biker but Steel was so much more, he was also a father who was fiercely protective of his daughter. Breanna could hold her own aswell, even though she was going through her own problems she stood her ground.

Steel is the prez of the MC and he is all man. He lives his live for the brother hood and his family, woman are a no go for him since his break up with his daughters mother. He enjoys the club girls but they all know where they stand. 

Then one night after he has received the call regarding his daughter he comes face to face with Breanna, she steels his breath, attractive and a spitfire, just his type...BUT she is his daughters Social worker, works for the government and even though he detests them all, he cant deny the pull he feels for her and so begins the love/hate relationship.

Breanna loves her job, so when she receives the call regarding Chenoa she goes straight to her. Drugs have played a big part in Breanna's life her younger brother is an addict and she will do everything in her power to help Chenoa from going down the same road. Whilst at the hospital she meets Cheona's father Steel, he makes her feel things she never knew possible but he is everything she swore she would never have. She is no stranger to the the MC lifestyle her father was in a club and he destroyed her family.

This couple cant fight their need forever and whilst trying to help Cheona they become closer. Steel knows his priorities lie in protecting his daughter and ridding the town of the drugs that are sucking the life out of people but he cant stay away from Breeana and Breanna knows a relationship with Steel could make her loose not just her job but herself but they cant stop whatever this is between them.

Will Steel get to the root of the problem?
Will they get a HEA?
What will happen to Breanna's brother and Steels daughter?


Chiah Wilder is the author of Hawk’s Property, the first book in the Insurgents MC Series. It is a full length, standalone novel. Its release date is set for October 27, 2015.

Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner. 

Her love of reading has always be center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her Insurgents series. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, biker romances with rough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons. 

Returning to writing has been a dream come true. Writing and publishing Hawk’s Property has been an amazing journey, and she is happy to share the Insurgents family with her readers. She is busy writing her next book in the series.

Chiah would love to hear from you. You can contact her at: chiahwilder@gmail.com

Excerpt


He’s headed for second base, giving me a wink. Cocky son of a.... I start running toward him, my hand outstretched with the ball, ready to tag his ass. God, what an ass. I’m a fairly fast runner since I jog all the time, but he starts pulling ahead, so I push harder. I start gaining on him and when he looks at the base, I know what he’s going to do. Just as he begins to slide.… I dive. 


“YOU’RE OUT!”

I’d feel a little like gloating but when I look up from my position, his head is cocked to one side and he’s smiling widely. “Feel free to stay down there a while.” He winks. I feel the heat of my blush as I push myself back from having my face right between his legs. Just like his large muscles, his cock is freaking huge! And hard as a rock. He rubs his scruffy chin. “Uh, you might want to get that dirt off. Right about here.” I give him a dirty look.
***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review - Michelle / Scandalous Book Blog***

Rica's time is almost up,, its coming up to her 25th birthday and she needs to be sorting out her love life in time for this birthday,, its not just her 25th birthday its a deadline for her to fall in love and have a baby !! she has been on numerous scary failed dates, how on earth is she ever going to make this happen within the space of a few months. 

The Contract: Drawn up by her Italian parents ! If Rica manages to fulfill this contract she is due to inherit a lot of money!! This could be task impossible !! Strict parents and 4 older protective brothers are not going to make this easy for her. One bit of important information that the parents missed off the contract,,,, the person she falls for needs to be Italian.

Rica works with people less fortunate than her and is determined to get her hands on this money so she can continue helping charities that she supports.

Luke is "helping" at a charity event when he ends up with Rica in a compromising position, the minute he saw her he knew had to get to know the Italian beauty. He does in search of her to ask her out when he accidentally overhears Rica talking about "the contract" and knows he can help her in her quest. He manages to talk her into accepting his help, who wouldn't ? He was amazingly good looking, sexy and so sure of himself his arrogance was off the charts. Its easy to put on a front and that's what Luke does , hes hiding his past from Rica, there is no way she would be able to fall for him if she knew.

Things move very quickly, after all they are running out of time! ! Protective brothers and Luke's secretive pasts are soon catching up with them and threatening to blow the whole contract up.

This was a new author for me and I enjoyed the book, there was a lot of light hearted banter mixed with love and heartbreak. The story moved fast but went with the title so worked well. The characters were all love-able and who wouldn't love their own hero like Luke he has everything a girl could want.

COVER REVEAL~ MISTER MONEYBAGS by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn't want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn't prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

COVER REVEAL ~ ALL THE FROGS IN MANHATTAN by Carrie Aarons




Title: All the Frogs in Manhattan
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2017

Blurb


You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?

Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.



In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.

The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
The namedropper.
The cheapskate.

If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.

But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ AND REVIEW - BLACKSMITH BY JENIKA SNOW








Steel isn’t the only thing that’s hard. 

Maddie 

Deacon was older than me, but I wanted him regardless. He had this raw edge to him, this primal aura surrounding him that made me feel wholly feminine. He was the epitome of a man…a real man. Even his profession was masculine: a blacksmith. I had no doubt he knew how to work his hands over a woman, how to use them to make her feel the soft and hard sides of him.

What I wanted was for him to be my first…my only.

 

Deacon 

She thought I didn’t see her watching me, that I didn’t know she wanted me.

I knew, and I wanted her with a fierceness that rivaled anything else.

What Maddie didn’t know was I’d already claimed her. There was no other woman for me but her. I was a possessive bastard, territorial when it came to her. The time had finally come to make her mine. I’d show her how primal I really was, how rough I liked it, how much I wanted to make her scream my name. I’d show her how a man took care of his woman in all the ways that counted.

She’d be mine. Only mine.



Warning: You like your heroes with a touch of caveman? Look no further because Deacon has it going on. He’s all man, and then some. Hold on tight because this story packs a punch, being unbelievable in the best of ways and having instal-everything.



Maddie

I had a death grip on my bag, my palms hurting from how strongly I was holding on to the damn strap. But God, I didn’t care. The sight before me had everything else dimming in comparison.

Deacon McKnight.

The only reason I knew his name was because I was nosy as hell, asking about him, my fascination like an obsession. We’d never spoken, and to my knowledge he’d never even noticed me.

But I sure as hell have noticed him.

If ever there was a person who could be the poster boy for what a real man looked like, Deacon would be front and center.

The bay doors to his shop were open, and although it wasn’t hot out, I could see sweat covering his hard, muscular form. I swallowed. If anyone were to see me gawking at Deacon, they’d think I had some issues. I didn’t give one shit. Walking by his shop every day on my way to the community college I attended was the highlight of my damn day. The only downside was when I finally pulled myself away from the perfect male specimen that he was, I was breathless, wet, needy, and wishing I had someone to relieve the pent-up arousal that burned in me.


I want Deacon to be that someone. I want him to show me with those big, strong hands, the ones stained from his work, exactly how he likes it.

And I bet he liked it rough, bet he could really dominate and control a situation, have a woman begging for more.

I might be a virgin, might not be experienced in anything more than a hand job and some oral, but God, I wanted to learn a hell of a lot from Deacon. I wanted him to show me how a real man handled a woman.

And no doubt he could.






“You’re mine. Irrevocably.”

Blacksmith was quick, delicious and oh so intense.

There is something about these type of stories you can't help but be infatuated with. They are over in the blink of an eye but still stay with you after time.

Blacksmith is no exception to this rule. Maddie and Deacon are one of the most intense yet independent set of characters I've read about in this type of setting. With that I mean the quick, insta love stories.

I highly recommend this story which I'm sure all you book lovers will enjoy! The perfect read if you have a short commute to work or just need a pick me up.

Jenika Snow is a USA Today Bestselling Author that lives in the northwest with her husband and their two daughters. Before she started writing full-time she worked as a nurse.
