ARC Review: Melancholy by Bella Jewel

Santana’s past has molded her into who she is today.  She at one time, did what she had to do to survive, even if that meant allowing herself down a path of destruction, one that brought her to her savior.  Maddox came and saved Santana, took her in, protected her.  He helped to fix the destruction her previous life had caused, but what happens when she finds out the truth about the one thing that almost destroyed her for good?

Santana at times was very stubborn and wouldn’t listen even when it meant her safety was on the line.  She survived some things that most people her age would never have been able to.  This has made her into who she is today.  Can she drive you insane with her stubborn attitude and at times overly sarcastic comments?  She sure can, but that is her way to not just hide her feelings but as a way to protect herself as well.

Maddox, oh boy, Maddox at times can make you want to just shake him and be like why in the hell would you ever do that you idiot!  He has always cared for Santana, he never looked at her as a daughter even when he was taking care of her.  He has wanted her for a long time, but like most men, he didn’t think he was good enough when in reality he was perfect for her. 

When you find out that something that could destroy everything that you were lead to believe, holy shit I wasn’t sure how things were going to go.  I was on the edge of my seat wondering what the outcome would be and praying that the worst case scenario didn’t play out.  At one point I even told my husband to hush so I could find out what was going to happen when he tried to talk to me.

Melancholy is the second book in the Jokers’ Wrath MC series, and in my opinion was one hundred times better than Precarious was.  I felt more of a connection with Santana and Maddox’s story, maybe it is because we saw bits and pieces in the previous book that the foundation was already laid out for us. 

Bella Jewel is one of my automatic buys, while I may not always love a certain book, I have liked them all.  If you weren’t sure if you wanted to continue on with this series because you weren’t a huge fan of the first book, give Melancholy a chance because for me it blows Precarious away and left me wanting more.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss, Book 1) by Nalini Singh

A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a little risk…

Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.

A one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s all it was meant to be…

Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…
