Sassy Little Thing by Bella Jewel (Iron Fury MC #4) Review

Sassy Little Thing (Iron Fury MC Book 4) by [Jewel, Bella ]5 Stars

I’ve been in a bookish funk for almost 2 months and while I’ve been listening to audiobooks and making half-hearted attempts at picking up my kindle it wasn’t until recently that I started to see the sparkle of books again. And while this isn’t the book that brought me out of that funk, IT IS one of the little sparklers I’ve read since then.

Sassy Little Thing is the 4th book in the Iron Fury MC series by Bella Jewel. I’ve only read one other book by Bella Jewel, and it wasn’t one of the Iron Fury books, but it was enough to make me want to jump into this series right in the middle. This is a series of standalones, and they feel like standalones. I didn’t feel like I was missing out on something because I hadn’t read the other books. I DID want to go and read the other books in the series.

Saskia is everything the title promised and Mason is one incredibly ALPHA biker. The storyline was unbelievable but still enjoyable for those of us that don’t care about how likely something is to really happen. I definitely enjoyed my time with these characters and I think I’ll try to make time to read about the rest of the Iron Fury MC.

I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

People, in my opinion, don’t take happiness seriously
enough.
They go through life, constantly trying to please other
people.
I do, however, take my happiness seriously.
Very seriously.
But, when things in my life, go suddenly south, I am left
with more than one choice.
Do what’s right, or do what’s wrong?
That, on any normal day, would be an easy choice for me.
I’ll do whatever I need to keep my life flowing with
happiness.
But when it comes to love, everything changes.
And him.
I love him.
Which means I have to correct my wrong doings.
I need him to forgive me.
I need money.
It’s the only way.
When a job for a live-in maid comes up, with excellent pay,
I jump at the chance.
When I realize it’s for the member of a Motorcycle Club, I
still don’t back down.
Even if it means I have to live with and work for, one of
the hottest, broodiest and most difficult men I’ve ever met.
I’ll do whatever it takes.
Only, I don’t expect to actually like him.
The mysterious biker.
The one who I seem drawn to.
And now I have a real problem.
Do what’s right, or let my heart take me where it wishes?
Two men. Once choice.
Things are about to get very, very complicated.

Judgment Road by Christine Feehan (Torpedo Ink #1)

Judgment Road (Torpedo Ink) by [Feehan, Christine]4 Stars

If you are a fan of PNR then you have definitely heard of Christine Feehan. Her name is synonymous with the genre and she has many series that span many years. I’ve never read one of her books because I hate jumping in at the middle of a series and the first books in those series seem so long ago that I never want to pick them up.  Judgment Road is the first book in her new Torpedo Ink series so I jumped at the chance to read it.

This book is darker and grittier than I expected it to be, but I liked that it went in that direction. I’m usually sensitive to violence, but it fit with this book. I will say that there are multiple triggers (so many I couldn’t possibly remember them all) but abuse of all kinds is rampant in their pasts. Reading this book made me wish that I had read more of her work (especially Blythe’s story) but I didn’t ever feel like I had missed something needed for the plot. Just that I want to know more about these characters in any way possible.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, and I can definitely see why shes a constant favorite in the PNR genre. I will be going back to read some of her older books so I can enjoy more of her writing. Lucky for me there are dozens of books to get through before I’m caught up on her.

Hound by Marie James (Cerberus MC 2.0 Book #2)

Hound (Cerberus MC 2.0 Second Generation, #2)5 Stars

It’s been a good book week for me, with two of my favorite “auto-buy” authors releasing titles. We got a taste of Hound at the end of Lawson and that was just enough to drive you mad. After that first chapter I couldn’t wait to find out how this book would play out. One of the things I was most looking forward to was seeing how Kincaid would react to one of his girls finding love. His reaction was priceless.

This is an age-gap romance, but there isn’t much emphasis on that once things get heated up. Hound does have a secret that comes into play. There is tons of action in this one and I think it really added to the story. Gigi is such a brat that she’s hard to relate to at first, especially if you witnessed her antics in previous books. That being said, I warmed up to her fairly quickly even when she didn’t always make the best decisions. I know I haven’t said much about the plot, but SPOILERS!!! The next book was hinted at in the last chapter and I CAN’T WAIT!

My first job with the Cerberus MC was to grab a girl from a
seedy bar.  Easy money, right?
The moment I realized the blonde I was hunting wasn’t
around, I ended up captivated by a redhead dancing on the stage. With her
striking features and sinful body, I knew she was trouble, but that didn’t stop
me from making her mine that night.
When I learned that she WAS the job, everything became
clouded.
I was only looking for a one night stand, but when the dust
settled and she ran, my only desire was to chase her.
Should I risk my job, and quite possibly my life, in order
to have her? Would she even stay if I caught her?

Lawson by Marie James (Cerberus MC 2.0 Book #1)

4.5 Stars

If you read Snatch, then you absolutely know why I couldn’t wait for Lawson. If you haven’t read Snatch yet, then you completely should (because it is THAT good) , but it isn’t necessary to read it prior to reading Lawson. 

I was reading a meh cowboy romance before starting this and was wondering if I was hitting a book slump because I kept starting and stopping different books. Then this showed up and I abandoned the cowboy romance and couldn’t put this down. Then I read the last sentence.

What?! The last sentence alone would have me dying for the next book, but THEN I read the first chapter excerpt of Hound, and it sounds like it is going to be another winner. I can’t wait!

My plan was as simple as they come… in theory. Show up at
the Cerberus clubhouse and give dear old Dad a piece of my mind. What I didn’t
expect was being welcomed by the open arms of a father who had no idea I
existed.
More importantly, I didn’t anticipate HER. Delilah Donovan
was a breath of fresh air. She would soon become my reason for wanting to
become a better man, my reason for getting out of bed with a smile on my
normally sneering face. But no matter how much I changed, she’d always be too
good for a man like me.
It was over before it could even begin.

Snatch by Marie James (Cerberus MC #5)

5 Stars!!!

I just moved to rural, bordertown Texas, and I won’t have internet for another week, WE NOW HAVE INTERNET and I just finished this book and I need to talk to people about it. I NEED TO. My husband, in my pre-blogging days, sometimes had to listen to rants about various scifi/fantasy books. He can handle the occasional geek out. He is not ready to hear me gush about this M/M MC Romance. I’m pretty sure he heard more than enough when I found out Snatch & Itchy were getting their own book.

This is my first M/M romance, and while I don’t have an aversion to them, I’ve also never sought one out. NOW, I feel like I’ve been missing something. Snatch & Itchy together were just what the Cerebus MC series needed to spice things up a bit. All of the Cerebus MC books can be read as standalones, but I seriously think they are so much better if you read them all. I’ve seen a lot of reviews that say this is the first Marie James they’ve read, and that they are starting with Snatch specifically because of the M/M romance aspect. If you haven’t read this series before, you will do just fine starting here… but you will love it so much more if you have all the background that goes with it.

After reading the prologue, I was seriously dreading what was to come. I knew it was coming, but it was still painful to watch. The epilogue was absolutely perfect and I hope this means more books… or a spinoff series… or SOMETHING. I have questions and I don’t know if they would be spoiler-y or not so I’m refraining from asking them….

I’ve been Jaxon Donovan since the day I was born, obviously.
My road name, Snatch, came years later due to my ability to literally snatch up
any woman I set my sights on. I’ve always been a connoisseur of the opposite
sex. Tall, short, thin, thick and juicy, my tastes knew no limitations.
I didn’t think there was a limitation to my sexuality, and I
found out just how true that actually was the night my best friend took it upon
himself to take me in his mouth. Sure, there’d been close calls before, the
slip of a hand or misplaced lips. With our propensity to share women, it’s
bound to happen. That fateful night, I was met with pure intention and an
experience I never want to forget.
How do you explain to your friends, your brother’s in arms,
that your extremely active sexuality has led you to your best friend’s door
step? How do you admit, after twenty-six years of heterosexuality, that you’re
into something else?
I’ll soon find out that what happens in the dark will always
come to light.

Dominic by Marie James (Cerberus MC #4)

4.5 Stars

After finishing Shadow, I was eager to start Dominic. I was eager for the book, but not necessarily the character. Dom hasn’t been around Cerberus much because he’s been away with the military. He is Kincaid’s brother, and while not a full member,  he is accepted and does help with missions when he is in town.

I didn’t read the blurb, so going in I expected him to be with Bri. He is definitely not with Bri, but Mak is a gorgeous pink haired spitfire that is trying to deal with the horrors of her past. I loved her instantly and the attraction between them is intense. This is another one that I had a hard time putting down. Dom is into BDSM so the sex scenes are different from previous books. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as Shadow, but it was still a very solid book. I am so excited about Snatch’s book. I need to know what’s going on with him. Hopefully its released soon!

Title: Dominic
Series: Cerberus MC #4
Author: Marie James
Genre: Contemporary Romance/MC
Release Date: May 11, 2017

 

Blurb
Dominic Anderson knows exactly what he wants in life:
simplicity, safety, and solidarity with his brothers. He’s vowed to spend each
day living his life exactly how he chooses since the day his wife betrayed him
and his four year military career turned into twenty.
Returning home after retirement from the Marines, he’s
traded the sand in the Middle East for that of the New Mexico desert, Humvees
for a motorcycle, and the comradery of men in uniform for the occasional woman
at his feet.
Life was perfect until Makayla “Poison” Evans, Renegade MC
Princess, knocked on his door, bruises on her face, neck, and arms, and no
money to pay the cab driver. Pink hair, perfect body, and a mouth that Dom
yearned to teach a million lessons, Mak asks more from him than he’s conceded
to a woman in decades.
She needs his help, his protection, and against his better
judgment, she expects him to keep her secrets. Only her secrets are deadly,
dangerous, and have the potential to start a war between two MCs.
At what point does safeguarding a woman become a betrayal to
the men Dominic calls his family? More importantly, can he get back the
sanctity of his home once Makayla is no longer in the picture, or will he be
forever tainted by her poison?
