Synopsis

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?

 

Mari’s Review

So, Spike is a douche and Ciara, well she is kinda of a spoiled bitch. In the beginning of the book I wanted to punch Spike in his junk for the stupid way he was acting. Stupid macho alpha asshole biker. It seemed like over 50 % of the book made me pissed off with Spike and calling him names wanting to throw my kindle and I may have ranted to a friend and my husband. My friend got massive messages and calls as I read this book.

I know priceless. Feel special for a getting look at the behind the scenes to your two favorite reviewers 🙂 Plus Julie still edited most of it…can u believe what the unedited version looked like…lmao.

The tragedy of Spike and Ciara’s past had me in tears but it turned them into who they are. I was an emotional mess reading this book but it was a good thing. I think. Bella Jewel has literally rocked my world with her biker series. Um then again I kind of have a biker book thing. Honestly, there was so much angst and so much love in this story. I love that we got to see a resolution for many of our characters and then meet a new one who I love. MUFF!!!!!!! I can’t wait for Jackson’s story to come because the little glimpses I got into Jackson in this book got my girly bits a little excited 😉 Yes I said that! I thought Cade and Spike were hot but Muff and Jackson come along and now I can’t decide who I think is hotter. Or maybe I don’t have to choose that’s the beauty of a book boyfriend, you can have as many as you want. Hell yes! Okay so sidetracked. Spike and Ciara after much ugly between them we finally do see some beauty. Read the book to see how after wanting junk punch Spike half the book…I was ready to cuddle with him by the end.

Heaven’s Sinner Excerpt

“I am proud of myself,” I scream so loudly the entire bar goes silent. “I am proud of everything I’ve done, and that includes him.” I jab a finger at Spike. “He’s everything to me, and he was everything to me before Cheyenne came along. If you want to hate me, go right ahead. It’s not like I haven’t lived my entire life with the same emotion being tossed at me on a daily basis. I am sorry Cheyenne is gone, but it isn’t my fault. It was never my fault. She wanted Spike, she pushed for him, and you can blame me as much as you want for that, but she was a big girl and she made her own choices. I’ll never be sorry for being with him now, because I love him. I’ve loved him far longer than she did, and I’ll love him until I stop breathing. Maybe it’s wrong, maybe it’s disgusting, but it’s my happiness and you know what?” I get to my feet, my legs shaking. “I fucking deserve it!”

Then, with legs that don’t want to move, I walk out of the bar. I get to the parking lot before they catch up with me. My mother grips my arm and swings me around, her face wild with emotion. Then suddenly, she lets me go. Her eyes widen and she takes a few steps backwards. I turn slowly, and see what she sees. Spike, Cade, Granger, Muff and about ten other bikers are standing in a massive line, glaring at her. She stumbles backwards, and clutches my father’s arm. Spike steps forward until he’s in their faces.

“You ever lay a mother fucking hand on her again, I’ll kill you,” he hisses at my father, and then he turns to my mother. “And if you ever call her another trashy name, I’ll knock you the fuck out. I will only say this once, so you fuckin’ listen and listen good. Cheyenne made her fuckin’ choices, and her choice was me. She put herself in my life, and she chose to stay there. Ain’t Ciara’s doing, and it wasn’t my doing. I loved your daughter, I loved her with everything I knew how to love with at the time, I took care of her, and then I fucked up, and she’s gone because of me. I’m not sayin’ I’ll ever forgive myself for that, ‘coz I won’t, but it can’t be undone. As for her,” he points a finger at me. “She’s been my fuckin’ heart since the day I laid eyes on her. She’s been treated like a fuckin’ dog by you two, and her sister, and she didn’t deserve that. You have done wrong by her, and you fuckin’ know it. You will never admit it though, because you’re too fuckin’ selfish. You can call me every name under the sun, you can disown her and treat her like a dog, and you can think whatever you want about the situation, but the reality is that I fuckin’ love Ciara, and I’ve loved her from the moment I laid eyes on her. Don’t mean I didn’t love Cheyenne, ‘coz I fuckin’ did, it just means I probably didn’t love her as much as she deserved, and she did fuckin’ deserve it. The truth of the matter is that my heart has, and always will, belong to Ciara and there ain’t no fuckin’ way I’m livin’ another second without her, because of shit that went on in the past.”

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.

Mari & Julie’s Review

So….Mari and I are going to try to put the book into words because really it is more of an experience that all should take a ride on. Yeah guys….we love the book that much.

Okay we do need to get on a bit of soap box first cause we gotta get something off our chests. It will be followed by a kick ass review so stay with us ok? 🙂

Prior to this book release we saw some people on social media bashing the book based on a few teasers. The book had not even been published yet and they were already comparing it to other authors who write about bikers and MC’s. Now…Mari and I, if you know us, know we love our bikers, tattoos, bad ass, pierced, totally unrealistic alpha male characters. It is our drug/obsession. Seriously….we will read anything that has anything about it. Comparing this book to other books is comparing apples to oranges. Are there similarities in all the these books….abso-fucking-lutely 😉 Why? Cause people, the persona is pretty much the same no matter how you slice it.  The persona is all primitive caveman hot. It should be….that’s why you are chose it silly.

The differences come in character development, writing style and story lines. All those wonderful things that make us love our fave authors. The style that is unique to them and them alone. Two of our favorite biker writers are Madeline Sheenen, who writes about the gritty side of biker life and Kristen Ashley, who writes about the bikers who LOVE their old ladies with everything they are. They both write awesome stories, in their own styles but have some similarities. It’s just inevitable.  Has it stopped us from reading most of their books more than once?? Nope 🙂

I (Julie) love my cowboy books *swoon* but guess what? The basis is the same for most of them. They own a ranch, they are rich but humble, they are family oriented, they have muscles for days that make you want to melt into puddle of goo and wife beaters n cowboy boots never looked so good. It is the way of writing people. STOP BEING HATERS!!! It’s not nice.  ***Julie and Mari climb off soap box now***

Now onto the panty melting, orgasm inducing hotness that is Hell’s Knights….

When we first saw Hell’s Knights advertised we got excited.  I mean like we were doing a happy dance in our chair’s excited because we so needed a hot biker book. It sounded hot and it did not disappoint. This book is all about hot sex, some sass and some seriously hot bikers.

Addy has had a shitty life. I mean like awful. Poor girl got the world’s worse mother ever. Through it all she is sassy, strong and just plain bad ass….we loved every minute of her.

Life isn’t easy when you have no one. Everything you do, you have to do alone. There’s no one to lean on. There’s one to help you out when you’re in trouble. There’s no one to cry with, and no one to share your laughter. You get tough, not because you want to, but because you have to. Who am I to complain though? What is it they say? Someone always has it harder than you? It’s true. It’s always true. No matter how bad you have it, someone out there has it worse. Is that a comforting thought? Hell no, but it’s a fact, and sometimes fact is all you need.

After some bad shit goes down she has no where else to turn and seeks help from her father. Jackson is president to Hell’s Knight’s MC and the man she has not seen since she was 4 years old. Want a clue how shitty her life was?

“You’re a bit late to play daddy now, Jackson. In fact, I am pretty sure you lost that chance the day I turned thirteen and got raped by a man nearly three times my age.”

Yeah, that shitty. Does it stop her from getting in a bad ass bikers face? Hell no! 🙂 and we loved her all the more for it. She sees Cade on the same night she arrives at her dad’s MC. She says he is the kind of guy you want to fuck just for the experience. Oh hell yea!

“I have to agree with you, Curly,” he drawls in a voice so deep and husky, my panties become soaked in seconds thinking about how sexy that voice would sound while he was fucking a girl senseless. “Girl is brave jumpin’ into a biker’s lot.”

I can smell him, and fuck, he smells like man dipped in chocolate, covered with fuckable sprinkles.

Things progress between her and Cade, her and Jackson and even a few members of the club itself. She slowly starts to find a happiness she never thought she would have. She finds a family. She finds love in more than one place in the rough MC club called Hell’s Knights.

“I’m not wrong. I’ve seen a lot of people in my life, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. None of them are as real as you. I’ll fuck you, sugar . I’ll claim you because you’re the meaning of need. You’re what I’ve been lookin’ for.”

Just when things seem to maybe be working out, maybe. Shit hits the fan…of course. The person she was running from finds her and things get serious. It also how we meet Spike. Ohh Spike….you think he is bad guy at first but once you learn some of his and Cade’s back story that could not be further from the truth. Him and Addy end up in very cute and messed up friendship. It is really fun to read.

Now to the good part…..the sex 😉

Cade is thick, long and pierced. He has the kind of cock that makes women beg for more, slightly titled up, thick head , and those silver barbells in the perfect locations. I squeeze him and feel him pulse beneath my palm.

Yeah, she wrote that and we fucking quoted that bitch. You feeling us now…yeah? That is just the tip of sexual iceberg my friends. There is hot sex on a bike, hot sex on a bar, hot sex with ice (OMG!!! BEST SCENE EVER!!!) Hot sex on just about every surface in this book. We loved every. fucking. word. There were a few in there that even Mari and I haven’t tried and that’s saying a whole lot since we were some crazy bitches in our youth. Mari has been begging her man to try a few and she talked him into one thing but the jury is still out on the rest…..cross your fingers for her…hehe

Don’t pick this book up unless you are ready for your panties to melt straight off and be changed a couple of times and then just decide to take them off and sit on a towel its easier that way and saves on underwear. Bella Jewel….We cannot wait for more of the MC Sinners Series if they are all going to be this hot! If we ever make it to Australia we suggest you prepare for some serious fan-girling n maybe some moderate stalking….just saying. Why you still reading this dumb review….go ONE CLICK THAT BITCH 🙂

Hell’s Knights Excerpt

He leans closer, lifting his heavily ringed fingers to stroke my cheek so lightly, I tremble.

“You’re the kind of girl that makes a man want to stop what he’s doing, just so he can get a moment to look at that angelic face – a face that will keep him awake for the rest of his fuckin’ life. That’s the kind of girl you are, sugar.”

I swallow, feeling my body coming to life beneath his touch.

“I think you’re wrong,” I breathe as he leans even closer.

“I’m not wrong. I’ve seen a lot of people in my life, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. None of them are as real as you. I’ll fuck you, sugar. I’ll claim you because you’re the meaning of need. You’re what I’ve been lookin’ for.”

Is he serious? I tremble as he moves even closer, bringing his lips only millimeters from mine. I swallow over and over, trying to think of anything else but him. How could he possibly want me that much, after a mere week and a bit? It’s not possible; he doesn’t know me. He just wants something different, a challenge perhaps? I don’t know, but I do know he’s completely wrong about me.

“I’m not what anybody looks for. I’m not what they fight for. I’m not what they breathe for. I’m not the girl you think I am.”

He leans down, shocking me as he slides his lips over mine, gently at first, then roughly when I begin to respond. I can’t help my hand, as it lifts up to wrap around the chain on his jeans. I tug it, bringing him closer. His boots crunch in the dirt as he takes a step closer, pressing his body against mine. I open my mouth, allowing his tongue to slide in and tangle with mine. His fingers travel up my neck, over my cheek and then he thrusts them into my hair, tangling it around them. The kiss is the kind of kiss that stops your breath, the kind of kiss that stops everything. For a split second, all I can feel is him. When he pulls back, I snake my tongue out and lick the last of him off my bottom lip.

“You might not think you’re worth fighting for, or breathing for, but let me tell you, sugar – everyone deserves to be fought for, even those who think they aren’t worth it.”
