Description from the publisher:
WARNING: This book will make you feel things!

Fall in love with Tuesday and Colt...and with the Masters M.C.
Embark on a journey that begins with a dusty pair of boots and a near collision on the side of a foggy, country road.

Meet a different kind of American motorcycle club—part outlaw, part BDSM Master, all code and heart.

Tuesday has been running on empty for years, that changes when she almost literally collides with Colt, the president of THE MASTERS M.C. A born outlaw, Colt has created something new, and Tuesday finds herself wondering if the sexy, tattooed biker is a sinner, or saint, as she rides on the back of his Harley, into a world she could never imagine.

Running from a past she didn't want, one she didn't dare know, and fearing for her life. She learns NOT ALL FAMILY IS BLOOD related, and some of the deepest roots are forged in LEATHER, INK & CHROME.

When a suit wearing PSYCHOPATH from the past comes to claim her, she glimpses first-hand the protection her new, leather-clad family has to offer.

WITNESS... The initial buds form on the family tree, and the brutal, suspenseful ride toward the birth of a new breed of biker.

As the first seeds are sown to grow the sassy, would-be debutante, into the slave Colt knows will make the bloodshed worthwhile.

LEARN... Along with Tuesday, what both lifestyles are really about, on her journey to becoming…PROPERTY OF


This is the first book in the Masters MC series.  They will need to be read in order.

B.B. Blaque broke basic rules of writing, and it worked.  Is it in first person or third?  Yes, and it worked!  Talk to the reader?  Yes, and it worked! Writing in dialect?  She gave each and every character their own voice and did a perfect job of maintaining each one’s uniqueness.

Tuesday and Colt are awesome – individually and as a couple.  I loved that the difference between abusive wanna-be and a loving Dominant is so beautifully portrayed.  Tuesday has spent years living a life of abuse disguised as a D/s relationship.  Even so, Tuesday is more than a survivor.  She is strong and she is feisty.  With Colt, she is allowed to bloom in a true relationship that includes the D/s component that encourages her to be herself.  That is the true gift of a Dominant.  Still, the story is more than a D/s fairy-tale.  It’s raw.  It’s gritty.  It’s real… and it’s not over!

I could not put this book down and ignored a lot of life while living in the world B.B Blaque has created.  When your significant other asks what you want for Valentine’s Day (or birthday, or…), I suggest you ask for one day, uninterrupted, to read this book.  I think it safe to say, you may also want to bank a day for the next book.  I know I’m banking my day for when STOLEN PROPERTY releases!

My note to B.B. Blaque:  I’m begging for Barely’s story.  Please don’t make us wait too long!

Description from the publisher:
(Complete story, no cliffhangers!) Anna Brentwood isn't your average fox. She’s smart, sassy, plus-size, and stubborn. The rare red moon is coming and Anna is afraid her primal urges will betray her, like Matt Stryker once did. He shattered her heart, leaving her to pick up the pieces alone.
Matt knows Anna is his chosen one, and will do anything to get back in her good graces. Anna is his only need and he’ll do whatever it takes to win her over. Only Bunny St. James, local reporter and sexy rabbit, has other plans for Matt. She’s had her eyes on Matt for longer than she’s willing to admit.
Can Anna and Matt find love again? Or will Bunny’s wicked scheming change everyone’s fate? When Matt’s bear comes out, his primal beast must decide what he truly wants and needs. His human knows…but his bear will make the final decision. Seductive pleasures await you in a heated romance. “Taming a Bear: Not Your Average Fox” is a BBW shape shifter romance story that will captivate your imagination and enchant your heart. (Complete short story...No cliffhanger)
3 CROWNS – very good BBW shifter story
This is the first book in the Red Moon Seduction series.  It does stand alone, but there is obviously a back-story that is not fleshed out.  I hope that reading further into the series more of the back-story will be provided.

The story is short and very sweet.  Anna believes that Matt has cheated on her.  Matt can’t tell her the truth, but asks her to believe him when he says that she is his chosen mate.  Anna must choose between her pride and her passion, her head or her heart.

I enjoyed the story, but I was frustrated that the “mission” was never clarified.  Why couldn’t Matt tell his mate about his true job?  Kia and Bunny can pursue their relationship without losing their jobs, but Matt can’t?  I think the story would be improved if these questions were answered within.

Given this is her freshman offering, I would be glad to read more from Ms. Bryce to see her maturation as a writer.

Grammar/editing:  C – average writing, probably self-edited

FAITH TO ENDURE by Nicole Brightman

Author:  Nicole Brightman
Publish Date:   10.01.13
Publisher:  Nicole Brightman
Category:  Contemporary Romance
Recommended for:  18+ due to sexual situations
Received from:  Nicole Brightman (in exchange for an honest review)
Date completed: 10.14.13

Description from the publisher:
Cora Allen thought her dreams had finally come true. She had her dream job, amazing friends, and the perfect man, Lord Eric Ashford.  When he asks her to marry him it seems her happily ever after is on the horizon. Until a piece of Eric’s past comes back and shakes the very foundation of their relationship. Cora never thought he would keep secrets from her. Secrets everyone knows, except for her. His family won’t accept her, and Eric doesn’t trust her. Cora begins to question if them being together is what’s best for anyone. She wants to be with Eric but if she can’t handle being Lady Ashford, maybe she should leave now.

How could so much go wrong in one day? Lord Eric Ashford’s life seemed perfect. He was surrounded by the people he loves most in this world and about to announce his engagement to the love of his life. Then suddenly everything is in chaos. Cora’s gone. All she left is a letter telling him he’s lost her. He refuses to accept that; Lord Eric Ashford doesn’t lose, ever.
Since I hadn’t read ROOM TO BREATHE, I decided to try reading FAITH TO ENDURE first, to see if it would stand on its own.  I am happy to report that it does.  Though you know you are missing some back story, it does not interfere with the magic of this story.  Of course, as soon as I finished FAITH TO ENDURE, I did immediately read ROOM TO BREATHE (see previous blog post, earlier this morning).

Ms. Brightman is a master story-teller who has delivered a fairytale romance in reality.  I held my breath so many times during this story that I was sure someone was going to need to call for oxygen for me!  Chapter one had me swooning with every page.  Oh, I finally have an answer for the constant question as to whom I want for my book-boyfriend. Lord Eric Ashford, I will be seeing you in my dreams.
