I received this ARC in exchange for a honest review and I am not disappointed. I love the newest installment in the Sinners Tribe series. O.K. so I may be a little biased here because there isn’t a book by Sarah Castille that I haven’t liked. Whatever she puts on paper I instantly adore. This book is no exception.
Zane is VP in the Sinner’s Tribe MC. He’s good at his job and has no regrets, except one….Evie. She is the proverbial “one that got away”. Having grown up with Evie, Zane has loved her for most of his life. She has always been in the back of his mind, never forgotten. Circumstances beyond his control forced Zane to leave Evie many years ago. But fate brings them together once more.
Evie has built a life for herself and her son. She has a successful business and his dating a local biker. That is until Zane walks back in her life. While they both care for each other, is there too much water under the bridge to begin again?
I really enjoyed this book. While this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read any of the previous books and I was able to follow and keep up with things happening. I highly recommend this book
Oh Tazen…..Tazen….Tazen… Tazen Watts is a celebrity in the car building world and has always been an unobtainable God until the day he walks into Quinn’s auto repair shop. Quinn has been working on cars for as long as she can remember. She works hard to prove herself as an accomplished mechanic, in a male dominated field. She also works tirelessly running her father’s shop. She is doing the best she can but the shop is failing anyway. The mortgage is overdue and the bills have pilled up, which causes Tazen Watts to take notice.
Tazen wants to buy Quinn’s shop and turn it into a custom build shop. He values the location and sees a great business opportunity. The only problem is, Quinn has absolutely no interest in selling. She has poured her life’s blood into the shop and isn’t going to let it go without a fight. Let the sparks fly!!!
Hard to Break is a definite enemies to lovers story. Quinn hates the arrogant nature of Tazen and his blantant come-ons. Tazen is drawn to Quinn’s fiery nature and loves how she doesn’t fall down at his feet, but he needs Quinn’s shop and she is standing in his way.
I love the story’s progression. At different times throughout the book I found myself disliking each character. Tazen comes across as an arrogant jerk and indifferent to Quinn’s plight. Quinn starts out as a strong-willed woman but can be somewhat bratty. But, in my opinion, these flaws only highlight their character and relationship evolvement.
While Hard to Break is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. There are no cliffhangers and you get a definite resolution. I received this ARC in exchange for a honest review, and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next book in the series.
This is the third installment in K-9 Rescue series by D.D Ayres. True to style, Ayres delivers a heartwarming story about a troubled vet and his service dog. I received this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
Lauray “Law” Battise is an veteran that lost his K-9, Scud, while wounded in action. While trying to deal with the pain of losing his leg and his faithful companion, Law is not doing well. He frequently has nightmares and has withdrawn from friends and his career in law enforcement. Trying to put the pieces of his life back together hasn’t been easy for Law. So, after agreeing to his sister’s demands, Law seeks out a service dog.
At Warrior Wolf Pack Law meets Jori Garrison. Jori is an ex-con that is trying to get her life on track. Jori has always proclaimed her innocence, however, her life was completely ruined the day she was convicted.
I really liked the characters in this book. Jori was strong and likable. She didn’t do the wilting flower too much but, when she did, it was understandable. The one aspect I really enjoyed was the focus on the developing relationship between Law and his service dog, Sam. Law, still grieving the loss of Scud, is sometimes mean toward Sam and a bit cold. He always keeps Sam at a distance until a pivotal moment in the book when he realizes how important the dog becomes.
This is the second book I have read by Ayres and I am not disappointed. Although the books are in a series they can be read as a stand alone. There are no cliffhangers. But I will say Ayres definitely left things open for Law’s sister to have a book of her own. I am really hoping that is in the works, because Law’s sister is a force unto herself and would make a great heroine.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and would recommend giving it a try.
