✿ My Review ✿





The MC world meets the Mob world in this awesome book by Kathleen Kelly!

Emily Reynolds and Salvatore Agostino meet when he saves her twice. They are both traveling to meet Dane Reynolds, but neither of them know that. Their connection is immediate. When someone uses Emily as a bargain chip, Dane and Salvatore must work together to save her.

Loved Savage Fire! It is an amazing book with an awesome story. It hooked me from the very first page and I couldn't put my Kindle down. It has lots of action, drama, sweet scenes and steamy scenes. It answered a lot of questions left unanswered in Savage Stalker (we finally find out what Kat's mom really did for a living!).
The book is mainly from Emily's and Sal's POV, but, like the first book in the series, it has a few chapters from other characters's POV.

Savage Fire character's are great!
Emily was raised by an abusive and alcoholic father and a mother that chose her drunk and violent husband over the safety of her children. Despite that, Emily grew up a strong woman, knowing what she wants, although she can be a little naive. She doesn't understand how Dane was capable of leaving the family and after their father dies she decides to confront Dane and try to hurt him.
Salvatore is a captain of the Abruzzi family. Like Emily, he has a rough childhood, but he took matters in his own hands and escaped. He doesn't see himself as a man good enough for Emily because of the things he has done for the Abruzzi family. He is very loyal to his man and with Emily he is very sweet, gentle, and kind, but also very protective and possessive.
I loved to see all the characters we met in Savage Stalker! Dane is still very swoon worthy and Kat is a ball of energy that made me laugh.

Once again, Kathleen Kelly wrote an amazing book, flawlessly written, with an awesome story and great characters. Can't wait to read the rest of the Savage Angels MC series and more about Jonas and Truth!








✿ Excerpt ✿


I am completely overwhelmed. My core is on fire and I want so much to kiss him, to touch him. I feel sparks of electricity shoot through every fiber in my body and every nerve ending is screaming for release. I want his hands on me, all over me.

"Amare?"

I put my hands on his chest and push him away. He's too close, making it hard to form a single thought. I take two steps to the side to put some distance between us so I can speak like a human, not a lust induced zombie. "Yes, they towed my car and it's in their lot. I haven't really spoken to them about it yet. I kind of fell asleep on them..."

His face clouds over and he says, "You kind of fell asleep on them? What. Does. That. Mean?" He pauses between each word and growls them at me.

"Jonas took me to see Doc Jordan and he gave me something for the pain, but because I hadn't slept in days it made me sleepy. I think he ended up carrying me to their clubhouse." I realize how all this must sound. If someone told me that exact same story, I would be thinking the worst.

"Did they touch you, Amare?" he growls at me, his eyes blazing with anger.

"No, no, no! In fact, Jonas put a guard on my door so no one would go near me. Not that they would. I was safe, Sal." Something crosses his face and he stares at me so intently that I look away and stare at the floor.

He moves back into my space and lifts my head up. "Thank you for getting me coffee. Let's go have breakfast and I'm buying. I think I shall keep you in my sights to make sure nothing else happens to you. I have never met a woman who allows herself to get into so many dangerous situations, in such a short space in time. You, my Amare, are a handful." He moves away from me and does up his shirt, then grabs his jacket. He opens the door to his room and extends his arm. "Shall we?" he asks, offering me a smile that reveals his dimple. My core clenches again and I have to fight the urge to throw myself at him.

✾ Synopsis ✾


We were born into the same crowd.
His father: a useless drunk. My mother: a psycho junkie.
We lived across the road from each other.
We became best friends when I was only ten.
He became my sole reason for breathing.

Seven years later, he forgot about me.

I don't know the exact moment he changed.
Suddenly I was just the girl next door, and he no longer cared.
He didn't want to be in my life.
He didn't want to help.
He ran off the rails, tossing me aside.
I no longer mattered. Nothing we shared did.

The next thing I knew – he was gone.

Ten years and I didn't see or hear from him.
Then came the call I'd be waiting for – he was back in town.
Only the man I remembered is not him.
This man is quiet, deadly, and so incredibly beautiful.
He also doesn't remember me.

I let him believe I'm just a girl that walked into his bar.
I let him believe I'm just a friend.
I let him use me on the cold, dark nights.
I let him believe I'm incapable of love, just like he is.
I just let the secret go on and on.

But all secrets have an end, don't they?

✿ Excerpt ✿


The door flies open, slamming against the inside wall, and momentarily startling me. "What now!"

At first, I'm caught off guard by her irate greeting, but as she stands frozen in the doorway, her eyes grow wide in surprise, and a blush shadows her ivory face.

Damn. She's beautiful.

I have to bite my lip to stifle a grin.

"I'm sorry. I thought you were somebody else." Her tongue darts out and licks nervously at her lips. An intense desire to capture it between my teeth and slide it between my own lips spikes through me.

Leaning casually against her doorframe, I cross my arms over my chest. "I heard something crash. Is everything okay?"

Her shoulders drop slightly, and her hard eyes soften, meeting mine. "Yeah, everything's fine. A friend made me angry, and I threw a vase at the wall."

This time I can't hide my amusement. "You either have a very short fuse or an asshole for a friend."

The tension slips further from her shoulders, and she smiles at my remark. "It's the latter."

Shit, so maybe model dude is her boyfriend. What am I doing here? I don't have time in my life for shit like this, but I also can't seem to make my feet walk away.

"Well, I can promise I'm not an asshole, and I'm not doing anything tonight. Do you want to grab a drink?" She looks down at her watch and bites her bottom lip in contemplation, her hesitancy making me uneasy.

"Come on, Green Eyes, it's only nine o'clock." Pathetic, I'm begging a girl I should be running from to have a drink with me.

Those eyes instantly meet mine and are filled with a sudden shine that wasn't there a minute ago.

"Do you want to come in and watch American Ninja Warrior with me?" The request comes so quickly I almost miss it. In fact, the only part I understood was that she wants me to come inside her place. Hell yeah, I'm coming inside. But first, I need to know what we're doing because at this moment, what my dick hears is 'coming inside' and it has its own idea as to what that means.

Suddenly she's laughing, and it's awesome. Her entire face brightens, and her eyes twinkle like I've never seen. Her happiness is settling in my chest and making me grin at her like a damn schoolboy.

"You have no idea what I'm talking about do you?" Her laughter subsides and leaves her with a smile that is... stunning.

"No clue. Only that you asked me in, and yet, I'm still standing in your doorway."

Mason
Carter Brothers #2
by
Lisa Helen Gray





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm Denny Smith.
I moved away to my Nan’s house after my parents happily kicked me out.
Why, you ask? Because I ruined my future, so they say.

If you ask me, I was a naive seventeen year-old girl who chose to sleep with the boy she had loved from afar for years, only for him to want nothing to do with me in return.

So here I am, back at the one place I had hoped to never return, where I'll attend court as a witness.

Now I have to face him... Mason.

There's no other way around it.

He can't know my secret... but he will.

When I returned, I expected him to have moved on with at least a million and one other girls, to have forgotten the naive school girl with a crush that followed him around like a lost puppy, but I was wrong.

What I got when I arrived was five brothers, a Granddad, a pushy Grandma, and a best friend who would stop at nothing to make me stay.

But only one of them has the power to make me stay... Mason.

After everything, can I truly trust him again or will he continue to break my heart?

If you mess with one Carter brother, you mess with them all














✿ The Series ✿


Malik
Carter Brothers #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm Harlow Evans. Shortly after my parents were murdered I moved in with my Grandma.
It meant switching schools, losing friends, and moving away from the only home I knew. All I wanted was to finish the school year hassle free.

Switching seats on that first day altered my life. After surviving the loss of my parents I never thought anything could break me, but then HE came into my life...

He wants to hurt me
Destroy me
Ruin me

Tragedy brought me here, and a cruel twist of fate has me desperate to leave. There's also someone here that has me fighting to stay though.

All my life I've lived in the shadows, trying to go unnoticed, until I met HIM...

Malik Carter...

He's broody, quiet, and holding on to a dark past. From that first meeting I was drawn to him, his painfully gorgeous looks and model physique, but I also knew he was totally out of my league.

He's the boy next door who, with his domineering personality, has somehow etched his way into my life.

When the Carter Brothers take it upon themselves to protect me from what's coming, I'm not sure whether to be relieved or shocked.

You see, when a Carter brother loves, they love fiercely, strongly and protectively. No one can get in their way. They're also used to getting what they want, even if it means getting hurt.

There's one thing you should know about the Carter brothers before you read my story...

If you mess with one, you mess with them all.

✿ The Author ✿


Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.We can all dream, right?

Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy.

First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels. She got into reviewing other author's novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I Could I'd Wish It All Away (2014).

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, Walking Dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books.
