No Rep

Madd Crossfit Series 1

July 27, 2021




About the Book

Taos was tired.

Tired of everything that came with living. Not to the point where he was suicidal or anything, but tired enough that he just didn’t give a crap anymore.

He’d seen all the ugliness this world had to offer due to his job as a police officer for way too many damn years of his less than stellar life. After finding a way to sustain his spending habits that didn’t include having criminals point guns at his face, he quits without a backward glance.

Only, he just can’t step away from old habits.

Old habits that have to do with a beautiful young woman that makes his heart feel like it isn’t nearly as broken as it is.

Fran has experienced more than her fair share of crap. After an attack that nearly took her life, she stays hidden in her house, fearful that stepping out of her comfort zone will be the final nail in her coffin.

Then her sister forces her to face her fears, and she joins Madd CrossFit.

There, she meets the man that saved her life a year ago, and realizes rather quickly that he doesn’t even realize who he is to her.

He’s everything she ever thought a man should be and wants nothing to do with her.

Maybe she’ll have to give him a reason to look her way.

And damned if she doesn’t find a way to do it.

She didn’t plan on nearly getting killed for that to happen, though.

At least not again.

I really enjoyed the start of this new series!! I'm so used to LLV always writing about bikers that it was an amazing reprieve to have something different...not that I don't LOVE her MC series because I do. I have all her books, but this one was different especially if you've followed her on her journey with Crossfit. It was absolutely one hundred percent Crossfit!! I loved Fran and thought that she was such a great character and she had the tragic past but didn't let it get her down. Taos was just an extreme alpha male who just wanted to protect his lady. That was sexy. Did I need all the sexy times? No, but that's not my thing and I just skip over it. I fell in love with the side characters...especially her sister and Murphy!! I loved little Vlad - he's so adorable ❤ I really want a Madden and Schultz story because they deserve their own books. For me, the takeaway from this book was love the ones your with because you really don't know how many days left you have with them. If they call, answer the phone. If you can go see them, go visit a little while. In a time of intense grief over the pandemic...don't just say you're going to do something but do it. Tell that person you love them because you might not get another chance. Bottom line is - Don't wait!

Title: Curly
Series: Hell's Handlers MC Florida Chapter #1
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2021


Travis Bryant, known in the biker world as Curly, spent thirteen hard years behind bars for a heinous crime he didn’t commit. When the truth finally sets him free, nothing remains of his former life. Curly can’t imagine living without the brotherhood of a club. After visiting the Hell’s Handler’s MC, he’s given the go-ahead to open a charter in his home state. Claiming an ol’ lady is the furthest thing from his mind until he meets Brooke, the beautiful, hardheaded dog trainer bent on ending a violent dogfighting ring near her home.


After ten long years married to an abusive narcissist, Brooke vowes she’ll never live under another man’s thumb again. Accepting help doesn’t come easy, but when abandoned dogs begin popping up with fatal injuries, she’ll do anything to put an end to the fighting ring responsible. Even enlist the assistance of the most attractive man she’s ever met and his outlaw MC brothers.

From her feisty, independent spirit to her shapely legs, Brooke appeals to Curly on every level. He can’t stay away, but he’s been burned before and refuses to tie himself to a woman again. Brooke is in a similar boat, having promised herself no man would exert control over her life again. Unfortunately, she can’t kick the curly-haired, muscular man in biker boots out of her head or her bed.

As Brooke and Curly grow closer and danger strikes, will they be able to overcome their past traumas and find strength in each other? Or will they remain stubborn and stick to their guns as their lives crash and burn?










Lilly Atlas is a contemporary romance author, proud Navy wife, and mother of two spunky girls. By day she works as a physical therapist for a hospital in Virginia. Lilly is an avid romance reader, and expects her Kindle to beg for mercy every time she downloads a new eBook.

HOSTED BY:




It's good to be back with the Hell's Handlers and a new chapter that's begun. Curly is awesome. He was introduced to us back in Little Jack and it is really great to see him get his own story. This one was in-line with all the others. It was an amazing storyline.

Pop Goes The Biker by Bella Jewel is now live!

I'm trouble with a capital P

I know what I want in life, and I go for it.

Nobody stands in my way, not even the big group of bikers who caught me red-handed stealing from them.

I'll do as they ask.

I'll be their good little slave.

I'll make their money and pay off my debt.

I'll also make them think twice.

Think twice about holding me.

Think twice about isolating me.

Think twice about the moment they decided keeping me was worth more than the trouble I bring.

And oh, do I bring some trouble.

Their little club won't know what hit them.

My name is Poppy, and I'm a bad, bad girl.

Hell follows me, and the devil himself won't mess with me.

They'll wish they left me alone.

Oh, indeed...

Pop goes the biker.

This book was okay, but I had issues with the hero being a douche.  The heroine acted like he was God's gift and I just didn't understand why. It made no sense to me and it was kind of skanky to have him sleeping with two women at the same time. Then, the skank gets kidnapped because she's a spy from the cartel and the hero treats the heroine with so much contempt that if it was real life....he'd be missing an appendage. I usually love Bella Jewel, but this was a miss for me.

One unforgettable night leads to an unlikely shared connection, and unlikely connections never go unnoticed by the good folks in Green Valley, Tennessee. . .

Totally Folked an all-new small town romantic comedy filled with humor and heart from New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid is available now!

Jackson James follows the rules. He has to. He’s a sheriff’s deputy in a super small town with a super big personality. However, strict adherence to the law during the day has been enjoyably balanced by rakish rules at night. Jackson, typically happy to protect and serve (and serve, and serve), starts questioning the value of wayward evenings when they begin to feel more like being waylaid rather than getting laid. Could it be that Green Valley's most eligible—and notorious—bachelor longs for something (and someone) real?

Mega movie star Raquel Ezra follows only one rule: always leave them wanting more. Strict adherence to this single rule has served her well. Studio execs, reporters, audiences, fans, lovers—no one can get enough of the smart, savvy, and sexy bombshell. But when “generous offers” begin to feel more like excessive demands, years of always leaving has the elusive starlet longing for something (and perhaps someone) lasting.

When Raquel abruptly returns to the quirky Tennessee hamlet, her path crosses with the delectable deputy with whom she spent one unforgettable night. Unfortunately, scandal and intrigue soon follow. Raquel and Jackson must decide which is more important: following their rules? Or, at long last, finding something real.

This was a really awesome book and I can't wait for the books to follow. Jackson and Raquel were amazing characters. This was a super fun and super funny book and had the Penny Reid style. I loved it so much. The storyline was unbelievable but believable at the same time. It had side characters that we rooted for and main characters that we wanted to succeed. This book was life.

Book Blurb:

Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional? I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle. But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone. My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy. Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

Excerpt

The door slammed. 

“Honey, I’m home...” I said to myself with a grin. 

I had a bottle of wine out on the living room table, my shoes on the glass as I leaned back and took a swig from my goblet—because why not get fancy at two in the afternoon? 

“It’s ten a.m,” came Tank’s annoyed voice. 

Or ten in the morning…whoops.

“I don’t own a watch.” I shrugged. 

“What’s that on your left wrist, then?”

“Oh, that?” I shrugged. “It’s an Apple watch used strictly for heart rate and exercise purposes.”

“Exercise to you is opening your mouth and closing it, Tiny.” He made it farther into the room, and I tried…I really did. I tried not to check him out. 

Not to stare at his golden skin. 

His bulging biceps beneath his plain black t-shirt. 

The new ink poking out from the V of that same shirt. 

Would he get the Abandonato crest like the rest of the Family? 

I shivered. 

He would look so hot with it across his chest. 

Our crest. 

Mine. 

I shifted my eyes away too slowly, and he caught them with his green-eyed gaze before he licked his full lips like he saw something else he wanted to lick. 

He always looked at me that way—with both annoyance and need. 

And I never knew how to take it. 

On one hand, I wanted to believe the need trumped any annoyance he felt for me, but I knew how he saw me. 

As a spoiled brat with a silver spoon stuck up her ass. 

And even worse now that I was older. 

Now that I was…different. 

“You added more blue.” He jutted his chin toward me and sat down on the chair across from the sofa I was lying on. 

“Yup.” I examined my black nail polish. “I felt like it wasn’t making a strong enough statement.”

He snorted out a laugh. “And what sort of statement were you going for? Gothic chic?”

“What?” I glared at him. “You don’t like it.”

“It’s not you.”

Disappointment threatened to choke me, and shame crawled up my neck by way of a harsh red flush. “You don’t know me.”

“I did.” He locked eyes with me. “Or I thought I did.”

I loved Tank and Tiny's story, but I also have a thing for love/hate relationships!! I really enjoyed Sergei in this book. I've missed him I think the most and this was just a short novel, but had everything I love jam packed into it. I always love when we get to see the family, but getting to know Tank more was an absolute pleasure. He's got a strong personality, as well as Tiny and RVD writes these characters so well. It's like she eats and breathes them!! She did an outstanding job for this not being as long as all her other books. Sometimes, with the 1000 nights books I feel as though we're rushed through the story and there's really no middle.. just a beginning and an end, but this had everything in it.

Jailbait

Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 3

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: April 6, 2021

About the Book

The first time I saw her was across the room at a bar. I had no idea at the time that she was only sixteen. All I knew was that she was beautiful, she was sending me do-me vibes from across the room, and I was fresh off a deployment where there’d been nobody but men for nine of the longest months of my life.

The second time that I saw her was at a court hearing that would decide how long I’d be sent to prison for. She was a cute little curly-haired blonde with wide, expressive eyes, a banging body, and the reason that I’d gone to prison in the first place.

The third time I saw her was through a glass divider of the prison visitation room as she waited for her stepfather, my lawyer, to tell me how sorry he was that he lost my case. Especially when I’d been the one to kill the man that was about to kill his daughter.

The last time, the time that I decided enough was enough, was when I saw her at my bar eight weeks after I’d been set free.

Unlucky for her, I’d stopped being a good guy about two seconds after those bars closed behind me twelve years ago. Now all that was left was a shell of a man that didn’t see the good in anything. Anything except for her.

There are some authors that you read with content like this book with antiheroes and you're like "Naw, I'm good" and then there are LLV books. I've come to enjoy and look forward to seeing her books because they're so intriguing and interesting to read. The characters are complex and they follow a storyline that is so intricate that it'll leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. I love her books and this one was no different. The characters made the story real for me. Excellent job!!
