Release Boost: Butcher by LeAnn Ashers


Butcher
(The Devil Souls MC, #3)

Genre: MC Romance / Romantic Suspense

Synopsis:

He stalked me from the moment he saw me. He watched me day and night. 


Butcher is what everyone calls crazy. They see all the tattoos and scars and to be honest, to most people he looks downright scary. He’s dangerous. He is after all the enforcer to the Devil Souls MC. 


But to me? He’s just Butcher. I see him. I see who he really is. I see a man who will do anything for the people he cares about. I see the man who will protect and love me above everything else. 


I am just as obsessed with him as he is me. I will die for him and he would kill for me. 


What everyone doesn’t know is I have the same crazy inside of me…



This book can be read as a standalone, but it is recommended to read the first two first.

4/5 Stars

Ok, first I will start off by saying going into the book I thought it was the first in the series, sadly I was mistaken and should have headed the authors warning of reading to other two books to get a better feel of the dynamics in the Devils Souls MC.

With that being sad though it was a good read. Shayla was a force to be reckoned with and paired with Butcher they were a dynamic duo. You have the lead female who basically gives no fucks, and the lead male who is exactly the same, he just bigger, scarier and more obvious about it. Shayla will sneak up on you with her fierceness.

They both are loyal to a fault when it comes to people they love, and what I didn’t like was how Shayla’s best friend basically dumped her as a friend to have a “new start” because of a bar fight. If you ask me Lexi had it coming, but that’s neither here nor there.

It was interesting in watching them fall in love. I just might need to read the other books in the series.

Sophie let out a long breath, feeling the stress of her first parole meeting dissolve. That relief was short-lived, however, once she opened the door and found herself eye to eye with a man whose black, buzzed hair and olive skin highlighted eyes that held crystal-blue, bottomless depths. The next parolee on the docket? His nose was slightly crooked and his lips were full. His penetrating gaze bore a hole in her. She stood frozen, staring for several moments before regaining her bearings and muttering, “Excuse me.”

She ducked out of the door and strode down the hallway, daring to glance behind her to see the man watching her leave. A faint smile crossed his lips, and her cheeks burned.

As she scurried off, the stranger’s intriguing eyes on her mind, she decided parole wasn’t all that bad.

Blog Tour: Hope Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

HOPE RESTORED
(Gallagher Brother’s #3)

Genre: M/F, Romantic Suspense

Synopsis:

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

Excerpt:

Tessa swallowed hard, doing her best to keep her emotions in check. Murphy did not need another person overreacting or acting too emotional. He needed his flirty friend, and that was just who she’d be.

“Reading? Oh, dear. That sounds tough. Maybe you should get someone to read it to you. Maybe Rowan?”

“You can’t see me, but I’m flipping you off right now.”

“Good to know you still have your sense of humor. Just trying to cheer you up, you know? I’d try phone sex, but I don’t want to overstimulate you.”

She froze, her eyes going wide. What the fuck, Tessa?

Murphy laughed hard into the phone, and she relaxed. “You know, you’re the first person to make me laugh since this weekend. So, thank you.” He yawned, and she pressed her lips together, trying not to think about why he’d be so tired already. “I should get some sleep.”

She closed her eyes, finding her strength. “I guess I should, too. Just… Murphy? If you need me, I’m here. And not just for jokes about sex, okay?”

He was silent a bit longer, and she was afraid she’d overstepped again. “Thanks, Tessa. And, yeah, once I know more, I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop. I’ve beaten shit like this— worse than this— before, you know? Not gonna let it get me down.”

“Hell yeah.”

Neither of them sounded too convinced.

They hung up soon after that, and she stared down at her phone, wondering what on earth she was going to do. She was only an admin in the financial department of the hospital. Every other person around Murphy had more experience and ways to help than she did.

But she’d do what she could because this was Murphy, and he deserved to live.

Not only that, but he deserved to live.

And if all she could do was make him laugh when the world seemed to fall apart around them, then that’s what she’d do.

Always.

1

The Bars Between Us

Genre: M/F, Romantic Suspense

Synopsis:

I don’t have a damn thing in common with the beautiful rich girl who walks in to my bar. She’s southern class, fancy cars, and designer shoes.

I’ve got a drunk for a mother, a cheater for a father, and a reputation for trouble I’ve more than earned.

I look the other way, pretending I don’t notice how perfect she is. She wouldn’t give me the time of day anyway. Until she shatters that first impression and shows me she’s so much more––everything I never thought I deserved.

After a lifetime of being a disappointment, I want to prove to her that I’m better than my past.

We have one tragic thing in common, and the thread that binds us together will tear us apart as it unravels.

Are we strong enough to break through the Bars Between Us?

 Excerpt:

She tastes like strawberries and sunshine and secrets that go deep, and kisses like it’s her last day alive. Whoever this siren calling herself Angeline really is, she’s sexy as fuck.

She’s also clearly dangerous.

If my cock were any harder, it would be titanium. Her hands are balled to fists on my chest, the one sign of resistance to the otherwise total surrender her body melts into as we kiss. Along with everything else about her, it’s an intriguing contradiction. Like the sadness in her eyes that’s paired with cold calculation. The self-confidence paired with the vulnerability. The pounding pulse paired with the disinterested smile.

She makes a sound deep in her throat, a soft, feminine moan. It makes my cock twitch. I tighten my arms around her and pull her closer.

“Wait!” She gasps, breaking away. Her eyes are startled. She lets out a surprised little laugh. “Wait a minute!”

Breathing hard, we stare at each other, our noses inches apart. I give her five seconds to get her bearings. Then I growl, “That’s as long as I can stand,” and take her mouth again, fisting my hands in her hair to hold her head in place.

From somewhere far off, I hear catcalls and clapping.

Her hands flatten over my pecs. After a moment, she winds her arms around my shoulders. Then she gives me her weight, leaning into me with a little sigh as she goes slack against my body. The kiss softens but also deepens, so now it’s slower and less greedy, but somehow even more intense.

Judging by how hard her nipples are against my bare chest, how irregular her breathing is, and how she’s digging her nails into my skin, I’d say she’s just as turned on as I am.

When the kiss finally ends, a minute or a century later, I’m dizzy. I mutter, “Fuck.” My voice sounds like I’ve swallowed a handful of gravel.

Her laugh is low and throaty. “Well said.”

I open my eyes and look at her. She’s flushed. Her eyes are half-lidded. She has that hazy, satisfied look a woman gets after she comes.

The amount of blood leaving the rest of my body to boil in my cock can’t be healthy. Pretty soon I won’t be able to remain upright.

I grin at her. “This is already turning out to be a fantastic friendship.”

She stares at me for a second, then breaks into full-throated laughter, her head thrown back.

Goddamn. If I thought she was gorgeous before, watching her laugh is on a whole other level. She’s fucking stunning.
