Rating: 5/5

Synopsis:

He’s loved me since the day I was born.
He’s taken care of me.
He’s awakened me.

Tor. My father’s best friend.
Fifteen years older than me, he’s always been my protector. The one I should never, ever want.
But I was born to be his.

She’s always loved me.
She’s shattered me.
She’s healed me.
Kenzi. My best friend’s daughter.
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go.
She’s forbidden to me. But she’s the only one that really gets me.
We’re slowly being torn apart by everything we love.
Everything we want.
Everything we desire.

And now I want the one thing I can’t have… I want her.

** Please note: there is NO underage sex in this book. This book is intended for readers 18 years and older **

My thoughts ya’ll:

First of all, let’s address the elephant in the room. You’ve read the synopsis and it probably made you a little leery of reading Torn. You’re not alone. I went back and forth several times on whether I wanted to read this book. I thought dirty taboo read. And I’m just not down with that. I was hesitant but, I read it anyway. I realized they were characters from the Ashes and Embers series by Carian. I’m so glad I did too. It does make me glad that she wrote the note at the bottom of the synopsis though. It eased my mind even more.

Finally, to the good stuff. Tor and Kenzi’s feelings were so realistic. You feel torn just like them because the writing is excellent. Their forbidden feelings create such drama between all the characters and I like drama and angst in my stories. It does raise my blood pressure though:) Carian is able to convey the emotions of uncertainty and second guessing that could easily happen in any new relationship. Age and familiarity just happen to be a factor in this one as well.

Tor was the perfect book boyfriend. He puts Kenzie first, thinks of her best interest, and takes care of her feelings like no one else can. You feel guilty for even saying he’s a good book boyfriend, because clearly after reading, you realize that he is Kenzi’s through and through. Tor is an alpha male for sure. Kenzi isn’t your typical high school student either. She’s has more adult life experience and her upbringing causes her to march to the beat of her own drum. She has maturity far beyond her peers.

My Review:

Most of all the writing was incredible. Carian did a great job of telling their story and she told it in such an agonizingly sweet way. It pulls you into the love story and makes you root for them from the very beginning. They have a unique relationship. There are flash backs through out the story that strengthen the evidence of their bond and really give you a glimpse into just how deep it is. Tor and Kenzi really are soulmates. It shows in their love and devotion to each other.

There’s no underage hanky panky going on. After she becomes of legal age, there was some super steamy scenes between them though.

The title is appropriate. She’s his niece and the woman he wants his forever with. Tor has convinced himself he isn’t a good guy because he knows the taboo and stigma of who he wants. The writing makes you feel Tor’s anxiety and apprehension so well. Also, Kenzie’s persistence and naivety is easy to recognize as well. But that’s what makes it so amazing in the end, they both just can’t help themselves.

Why you should read it:

Stop debating and go read Torn because it’s an amazing read and a unique perspective on a love story. It literally melts your heart and your panties. Carian did not disappoint. If you’re like I was and debating on whether to read it, just dive in. You won’t regret it.

About the Author:

Carian Cole has a passion for writing bad boys and sweet girls for them to love. It’s evident in her series Ashes and Embers and this first book in the Devils Wolves Series. She’s talented and brings the character’s too life. If you want to check out her other titles head on over to her amazon page here and show her some love.

Craving Hawk (Aces’ Sons #3)-Sexy MC Romance

31304732

Craving Hawk (The Aces Sons) by Nicole Jacquelyn

Craving Hawk is a short, sexy, MC romance.

 

My Rating: 4/5

Synopsis:

Tommy and Heather seemed like oil and vinegar. They just seem to rub one another the wrong way. No matter though. Heather was in love with Tommy’s little brother Mick…or so everyone thought. She’s kept his secrets all this time.

Tragedy struck when Mick was gunned down. His family was mourning so much loss and Heather was left to cope on her own. But life goes on.

Because of her sister, she finds herself right back with the very family that abandoned her in their grief when they go on lockdown at the Aces MC compound. There, she is reacquainted with Tommy who isn’t cocky anymore. He’s dark and nightmares about the day he lost his brother plague him. He’s still fighting through the loss. But now Heather is back. Nightmares or not, he’s making Heather his woman…no matter what.

My thoughts ya’ll:

Hawk is the self given name that Heather, the heroine, gives herself. Girl has got some balls because…who does that? Craving Hawk picks up where the last story left off in Craving Molly (Aces’ Sons #2). They are on lock down at the Aces MC compound. If you are a fan of the Aces, you’ll love catching up with all of your old friends in this book. I always want to know how my favorite book friends are up to after all this time.

Hawk has a hate, hate relationship with Tommy stemming back to her teenager years. She’s forced to be around  him during the lockdown, and all of their interactions seem to ignite with sparks. The tension between the two could really only end up in one place. You know…knockin boots. Through the story we find that she was best friends with Tommy’s younger brother, Mick. Mick lost his life protecting Tommy during a shootout and Tommy still isn’t the same. He’s definitely moody.

Tommy has been attracted to Heather all this time. While pursuing her, they are forced together because of a secret Tommy has and Hawk’s possible knowledge of it. They both know it could tear the family apart. His family believes that Tommy is taking his baby brother’s girl when in reality she was Mick’s protector and confidant. Their attraction to each other finally boils over. Tommy has the bight idea to marry Heather, yet not for the reason you’d think.

My Review:

I’m going to be honest. I almost traded this book back into Kindle Unlimited. I’ve read all of the other Aces’ Sons books as well as the original Aces series. The other books were great and Nicole is an excellent story teller. It started off a little slow and I guess I was just missing the other characters and was being snobby about meeting a new one from their world. So why did I continue reading? I knew it would get better. Maybe my loyalty to the Aces kept me from putting it down. By the end of the book, I wanted to apologize to Nicole for even thinking about returning it. I realized I really liked the characters.

Hawk and Tommy aren’t your cookie cutter, typical attractive hero and heroine. Hawk was spunky and strong. She had a witty mind and dirty mouth. Tommy wasn’t your typical alpha male asshole either…or I’m just so used to the other Aces, he almost seemed tame.

Craving  Hawk didn’t have the intensity or harshness that the other Aces stories had. There was some darkness, but there wasn’t a ton of drama…and I would have liked a little more.  It was a short read and a short epilogue would have been nice. Now after reading her twitter, I realize it’s probably because she has other stories in the series coming out, so I’ll get to see the rest of Tommy and Heather’s happily ever after.

Nicole also broke down all the characters’ relationships, which I was very thankful for. I had forgotten how all of the characters connected to each other and it made me rememeber how much I really loved them in their own stories. Reading Craving Hawk is still enjoyable if you haven’t read the rest of the series.

Why you should read it:

Nicole’s writing is excellent and will have you craving more of the Aces. Craving Hawk is a short, sexy, well written MC romance. She also gives you a glimpse into the lives of the other couples and family members from the Aces family.
