One-click today!
  He kidnapped me. That was how I met Atlas Hyde. A man known by many names and admired by all. But most didn’t know he was ruthless, conniving, and always got what he wanted. No matter the cost.   I was a good girl. Never in trouble with the law. Never took drugs. Always did precisely what was expected of me.   Even with his hand around my throat and words that cut sharper than knives, I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to this beautiful man to make him that way.   That wonder disappeared when he threatened to kill my sister if I didn’t follow his dark demands.   The good girl I once knew had now been buried alive beneath this game of hatred and lust. And I had a feeling Atlas Hyde never lost.

Okay so... I'm not reviewing yet on GR or Amazon because I'm not quite sure what to say.
For all intents and purposes this is a 3.5 star review. Right up the middle because I really don't know if I've liked it or not.  Odd, no?  Will I read book 2? Most definitely!
I really liked the premise of the story.  I liked the writing, the words. For some reason, I just couldn't get on board with the characters.  I guess I need more... I have no idea who Theodora really is, other than the main character.  I feel no attachment, she doesn't do anything for me.  I guess maybe she's too wishy washy?  The whole "I hate you" lets fuck thing...
And Atlas?  He could be such a strong, demanding character, yet I'm not into him either.  I'm really more into the story line itself.  So just to see what was gonna happen with Lucy and Nicholas...that's what kept me reading.. That's why I'll keep reading.
And the whole thing with Benji????  I don't even know what went on there. I still don't really have much of a clue. lol
So before I can really give a decent review, I must finish the duet as a whole and see where it goes and if my feelings have changed.
I'm a holdout until the bitter end, lol

YES! M. Never is back. She's kicking ass and taking names.

Fallon is a female assassin and she's the best..not best for a girl, but all around best. She works thru March, her best friend and confidante. 
Declan O'Dea is an assassin almost as good as Fallon, with a dirty mouth that he surely knows how to use.  While you can begin to see the story, along comes Ronan and then the story REALLY kicks in.
M. Never takes you on a thrill ride full of angst, twists, turns, lies, and vengeance as only M Never can. I was engrossed, not wanting to put it down. It was a wonderful read and one of my top of 2020.
M Never knows how to weave her words! 
Dangerously is a must read if you love a bit of dark woven amongst the angst and excitement.
4.5 Stars 


M. Never, the author of dark, contemporary and ménage romance. All my stories have addictive heroes, fierce heroines, hot sex, and page turning plots.

A little about me, I love the color black, I'm dependent on coffee, sushi, sweatpants, boots, and watermelon Perrier. I have a clingy pit bull named Apache, and a needy pitsky names Kai!

Writing is my passion, but readers are my love! Suggested reading-- Owned, Ghostface Killer or Slashes in the Snow!

If you LOVE Antihero's read this now! FRAUD by Lily White

Title: Fraud
Series: Antihero Inferno #2
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Release Date: June 24, 2020
‘A super sexy enemies to lovers romance that was FIRE HOT! I am obsessed with this series.’ ~Keri Loves Books

‘I freaking LOVE this series! Even though we are only 2 books in, I know that this will be one of my all time favorites!’ ~Two Sassy Chicks

Eighth Circle.
Also known as Gabriel Dane.
He is a ray of sunshine that warms your heart with kind eyes and a dazzling smile.
Don’t let him fool you with that silver tongue or lure you in with a body that draws every woman’s eye. This man is fluent in deception and a devil who only offers pretty lies.
Gabriel is my old nemesis.
I'm the girl that always fought back.
He has every reason to hate me as much as I hate him.
Now that he found me, he’s determined to make me pay for our past.
Except, there are two small details Gabriel doesn’t know that will be his ultimate downfall:
There are no rules when it comes to our war.
And I've learned to lie just as good as him.
***Each novel in the series depicts a unique romance, but the plots through each book connect in one world. For the best experience, read the series in order.
Nine Standalone novels. Nine dangerous men. Nine unrepentant sinners you’ll hate to love.

FRAUD was phenomenal. Gabriel Dane, ugh...that smile, that devious mind. He gave it to Ivy, but good. And Ivy? She's no schmuck in the get even game either! Their relationship was always meant to be, they just didn't know how to accept it.

These characters are amazing. They are full, well rounded characters that are so easy to envision. Hello Netflix series! Seriously. Even the characters we get to learn more of later are already emitting their personalities.

This story is so well thought and perfectly executed. The plot and story line were wonderfully done. I laughed, I swooned, and I may have exclaimed "oh, shit!" a time or two.
Fraud was amazingly well written and a testament to the ability of the author. She can tell a story like nobody's business. The back and forth between Gabe and Ivy was so much fun!

While this is book 2 in the series, I read it without reading book 1 (thought I had it, turned out I didn't and I needed to get this one read for the release blitz) so you can read it without, but I don't recommend it. It's part of a series for a reason, and I completely missed the crux of The Inferno Boys and what they need, what they're looking for and why. Not to mention, I'm sure Tanner and Luca's story is just as good. So I would for sure say read Treachery first. Then you can jump right in to Fraud...
Can't wait for Violence, book 3! At least I have time to catch up on book 1!
Thank you, Lily White, for an amazing book and making my reading journey absolutely enjoyable!

New MC Author, Quinn Ryder, releases Specter's Wake! Here's Rachel's Review

Author: Quinn Ryder 
Series: The Devil’s Armada MC, Book 1 
Release Date: June 15, 2020 

And in his wake, he left behind a trail of endless, shimmering tears . . .


The man they once knew is dead, buried in a shallow grave outside of town with a bullet hole through his back. Their assassination failed, underestimating me, my thirst for life, and my love for Faith.

I never meant for my absence to destroy her, yet staying gone was the only way I could keep her protected. For the last seven years, I’ve laid low, traveling through life and riding the streets like a ghost, never being more than a shadow of what I used to be. I've kept my distance, but now that I know her life’s in danger, I think it’s time for Specter to claw his way out of the grave they buried him in and seek out his revenge.

I know infiltrating the Devil’s Armada again won’t be easy, especially since everyone thinks I’m dead, but I’ll do anything I can to protect Faith—even if it means putting myself in danger and confronting my murderer once and for all.


I never saw it coming.

As the club’s tail gunner, it was my job to watch everyone’s back. You could call me the club safety man, the one that made sure the roads were clear, steady, and free to ride. As the rear lead, I was the road captain’s right-hand guy. A shadow sweeper that kept everyone in their lane and out of harm’s way. My loyalty bled brighter than the cut on my back. I never questioned what I was told. I kept my eyes on the road and believed in the family I helped to protect. I always had everyone’s back until someone shot me in mine.

The bastard couldn’t even look me in the eye. He waited until I wasn’t looking to take me out of the equation, and when he thought he got the best of me, he buried me in a shallow grave on the outskirts of town.

I’ve tried to figure out what I did wrong. What I could’ve said to make one of my own brothers turn on me, but none of it makes any sense. I did everything right. I was dedicated to the family. I never asked questions, even when they did shit that I didn’t agree with.

If I hadn’t caught a glimpse of the familiar Devil’s Armada logo right before he started shoveling dirt over my nearly dead body; I would’ve never believed that someone from the family had a hand in my murder attempt. I wish I could’ve seen his face, but all I could see was the cut on his back and a flash of dark hair.

He may have buried Midas in that shallow grave, but it was a different man that clawed his way out of the muddied earth thirsting for revenge. Now that I’ve lost the only family I’ve ever had; all I have left to live for is her. The hardest part about that night wasn’t digging myself out of my grave or recovering from my bullet wound; it was turning my back on Faith and allowing her to think I was dead.

Returning to the family without knowing who tried to kill me would only put her in danger. I couldn’t risk her life, not when I knew somebody wanted me dead. They’d kill her to get to me, and her life meant more to me than my own life ever would. So, I left her—I left them all. I had to turn my back on the only woman who has ever truly loved me for me. She didn’t care that I was bruised and broken. She didn’t see my size and run away like I was some side show freak. Faith loved me unconditionally. It didn’t matter that I was three-hundred fifty pounds of leather and abandonment issues; she loved every pound on my body and all the scars hidden underneath.

It was that unconditional acceptance that drew me to her in the first place. Faith is the type of woman who loved everyone, and everyone loved her in return. It was easy to fall in love with someone who’s only flaw was being too kind. That’s what I loved most about her. Faith didn’t have a mean bone in her body, and I did everything in my power to protect her from the club’s extracurricular activities.

I was ready to make her my Old Lady and circle that beautiful finger with my ring. That ring now sits heavy in my pocket, waiting for the day I can drop to one knee and pledge my life to her. She had no idea I was going to propose, and it kills me that they took that moment away from us. That’s why leaving her hurt me more than the betrayal of my brothers. Faith was my world, and someone worked incredibly hard to shatter that world into itty-bitty pieces. I have no idea what her life’s been like since I’ve been away, or if she’ll even forgive me for leaving her like this. But I have to try. My life just isn’t the same without her in it.

It’s been seven long years since I last saw her, and I didn’t plan on coming out of hiding this soon, but when I got a mysterious email from an unknown email address, telling me that Faith’s life was in danger, I knew it was time to come out of hiding and reclaim what’s mine.

My only questions now are, who was the mysterious mailer? How did they find me? And can I trust what they’re telling me is true?

Midas may be dead, but the man who crawled out of his grave is ready to return home and find his Faith again.

What a fun debut MC from Quinn Ryder. It was well written, enjoyable, and full of murder, mayhem, and betrayal. Just the way I like em.. oh yeah, with a double side of sexy.

The author pulls you in with a biker that's been left for dead and keeps you there by folding you in among her wonderful characters. She gives you just enough of each that it leaves you clamoring for their stories!

Even though I've never been an MC genre fan, I will faithfully read this series in it's entirety. With just one book, I've met a a world of new friends.

Well done, Quinn!

Quinn Ryder lives in a fantasy world full of badass bikers, feisty heroines, and chrome that's twitching to rumble between your legs.

She's been in the business for five years, so this author is no stranger to written words, but she must admit that the MC world is a bit new to her. Tempted by the corruption and chaos that follows the open road, Quinn created the Armada after one burly biker refused to leave her head until she finished telling his story. Now, Specter and all of his brothers are ready to suck you in with their rough exteriors, foul mouths, and hearts full of steel and chrome.

Are you ready to dive into the world of the Devil's Armada? Come join Quinn Ryder and her men of steel and be prepared to hang on for one hell of a ride!

Quinn Ryder, creating worlds full of danger and intrigue while riding the road one word at a time.
