Review

5-stars

Meadow is on the run. She’s been at it since her father was killed in front of her. Her only mission is to outrun Axel and deliver the USB her father gave her before he died. But Axel continues to hunt her and try as she might she can’t outrun him and his buddies.

Axel needs to get the information Meadow is carrying, but she keeps slipping through his fingers anytime he has her close. Add to that the face that the girl he once knew has turned into an amazing woman and he’s in a world of trouble. His protective instinct fighting against his mission lead him into a journey where his life as he has lived it for the past years turns on its axis.

Lust. Betrayal. Confessions. Need. Pain. Peace.

Bella Jewel has a knack for building a world where the men are hard and edgy but yet so damn lovable. I loved Axel. He was broken and had lost all hope of ever feeling again the emotions that Meadow brought in him. I wanted to comfort him just as many times as I wanted to throttle him. *sigh*

“She needs to know… she just needs to know that she’s not nothing. If that’s all I can give her, then I’ll give it with all I am.”

I appreciated the fact that Bella Jewel brought both Axel and Meadow’s emotions to the page in a way that felt real. Every reaction, every interaction and every event was placed in the page to bring the utmost impact.

Meadow was a great character too. She was strong and gave as good as she got, but underneath it all she just wanted to lead a ‘normal’ life. She missed out on so much as a young girl and coming face to face with the one man she never forgot and finding herself in the situation she was currently in would have broken even the strongest of souls, but she stood her ground and continued forward. Although there were times where she was close to losing hope, she never gave in. Not even Axel’s actions nor his cold affront derailed her from getting to the bottom of what was happening.

“Watching him lose control, watching the way his eyes almost haze over, and the way his mouth drops open with a groan, has everything inside me wanting more. Needing more of this. Of him. I whimper just from the sight of him releasing alone. He’s so perfect. Even when he doesn’t see it.”

Needless to say that Meadow and Axel’s chemistry was off-the-charts HOT. Even during the chase and especially after she was captured you could feel the underlying sexual tension between them. They shared a connection that was developed years before, but even time and Axel’s behavior could not diminish it. Kudos to Bella Jewel for bringing it to the surface and developing it even amongst all the chaos the story entailed.

“Once you go here, Cricket, you can’t go back. If you accept this, all of me, then I’m never lettin’ you go.” His voice is serious , his tone determined. I smile up at him. “I say, bring it on.”

From the lust that sizzled between Meadow and Axel all through the conflicted emotions each was feeling about engaging one another I devoured it all. I got teary-eyed a couple of times, tapped the hell out of my tablet in frustration and anticipation and grinned and drooled when those two came together (no pun intended!). As a first book in the series, Angels in Leather was fantastic.

All in all, an emotional, hot and riveting read about second chances in a world where those chances at love are few and far between.

*I received an ARC of this title from the author in exchange of my honest opinion as part of my participation in this event.

Excerpt

“Fight me, don’t you stop,” Axel breathes into my ear. “I won’t hurt you, Cricket,” he murmurs, running his finger down the side of my face. “But I need you to fight.”

So, that’s what I do.

I start by squirming, trying to twist my body around. He presses his body against mine, and reaches up, tangling his fingers into the fence. He thrusts his hips, ramming both out bodies harder into the wire. I groan, and throw my head back, hitting him in the face. He snarls, and takes my hands, quickly uncuffing me before pulling them harshly behind my back and jerking my body back into his.

I hear the cuffs drop onto the ground.

I guess he’s letting me play this fairly.

“Stop that,” he rasps into my ear. “I’ll make it hurt if you do that again.”

“Maybe I want it to hurt,” I hiss, fisting my hands together and shoving them backwards into his stomach.

He stumbles off me with a grunt, and I spin around, ducking to the left and attempting to run. I don’t get two steps before Axel lashes out, taking my ankle and pulling me so hard I go down into the dirt. My face just misses being smashed into it by mere centimeters. Axel flattens his body over mine, and takes my head in his hands, jerking my head back by my hair and breathing down on me. “You’re being a bad girl,” he husks, running a finger down the side of my face.

“You’re not letting me play fair,” I whisper. “I was cuffed before, it wasn’t a fair chase.”

I feel his weight lift off me, and he jerks me up, pulling me into a standing position.

“Run, then. I’ll give you five seconds, and if I catch you again, Meadow, I’m going to f**k you,” he murmurs, then his eyes grow lusty. “Hard.”
I turn without answering, and I run into the trees at the back of the lot. I hear Axel counting loudly, and my body shivers. I am sweating now, and my breathing is hard and ragged, but the chase is so worth that. I hear Axel take off after me, and I squeal with delight as I weave through the trees. It’s dark, but I can see enough because of the lights surrounding the club house.

“The minute I get hold of you,” Axel yells. “I’m goin’ to rip your panties down and put my d**k so deep inside you, you’re goin’ to scream.”
I shiver, and swallow. I make my way to the fence line again, and I press myself against it for a second, letting my eyes scan the trees. 
“Then I’m goin’ to kiss you so hard your lips will bleed.”

Oh my.

I take off, using the fence line as a guide to get back to the other end of the lot. I can hear Axel to my left, and I know he’s gaining on me, but if I run, it’ll make a lot of noise and he’ll figure out where I am.

“Come out come out wherever you are,” he sings. “You know I’ll make you come so much your legs will give way.”

I feel a smile on my face as I keep moving along the fence, keeping my body

plastered against it. I can feel my own arousal dampening my panties, and now I’m eager for him to get his hands on me. I want to know what he’s got to give.

“You can run, Cricket, but you can’t hide.”

*Mini Reviews* Hell’s Knights and Heaven’s Sinners by Bella Jewel

 
Hell’s Knights (The MC Sinners #1) by Bella Jewel

18211118Rating: 3 stars

Published: August 28, 2013

Synopsis: A modern day biker romance.

Addison has had a hard life. Her mother is useless, and her father hasn’t been in her life for years. When her mother dies, she’s left with no money and an angry man after her. She goes to the only person she knows can take care of her right now – her father. She knows her father is the President of an MC club, but she doesn’t quite realize just how much she will come to rely on that club.

Cade is everything she knows she should stay away from, and yet she can’t seem to keep herself from wanting him. He’s the club VP, gorgeous, rugged, charming and he makes her feel again. She should be running, she should be escaping the demons of her past, but instead she finds herself falling for the gorgeous biker.

Come on this whirlwind romance with two broken people, who figure out how to put each other back together.

Review: Hot and edgy, this book was a surprise hit for me.

I enjoyed the character’s chemistry, their banter and the whole MC environment. I didn’t much care about the insta-love though. They did have an instant connection, but I think it could have been developed further before declarations of love an ‘Mine’ came into play.

I enjoyed meeting the secondary characters and am curious to know more about them, specially Spike. I have a feeling that I’m going to enjoy his story very much.

All in all, a great start to a series with passionate, possessive and broken characters that come together to try to make a future together and whose chemistry is explosive from the moment they meet.

Heaven’s Sinners (The MC Sinners #2) by Bella Jewel

18364153Rating: 4.25 stars

Published: September 23, 2013

Available at: Amazon (US) (UK) | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Synopsis: A modern day biker romance.

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 feel a second time around. He’s accepted he’s going to spend forever alone. That’s all he deserves.

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?

Review: Hell yeah, this is what I’m talking about!

Secrets, guilt, confessions, tears and sobs. Out of control kisses, making love, fucking, piercing removal, sucks, licks and nibbles. Shouts, screams and bellows.

Holy Hotness, this book had me teetering in the edge. I was consumed by Spike. I loved Danny and lusted after Spike. Geez, that man was intense. His words, his actions and his feelings were just so out there for me to grab. Each and every one got to me. Yep, I think I found my new book boyfriend of the month. Okay, okay…my new book boyfriend of the day. 😉

Now don’t get me wrong, the sex and Spike weren’t the only awesome things about this story. It was a bunch of things that made it so great for me. I loved the emotions both characters portrayed, the passion they unleashed unto each other and their story from the early beginnings to their fucked up middle and ending with their drama-filled present. It was one hell of a ride ad I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I was so looking forward to reading this one and I was NOT disappointed in the least.
