Blog Tour: Angels in Leather (Rebels On Bikes #1) by Bella Jewel





Meadow was on the run.  Her father, as he died made her promise to run and deliver the package.  She knows if he catches her she’s dead.  He killed her father so he wouldn’t stop at killing her either, would he?  They used to be friends, he saved her life.  Meadow knows that something changed him into the dark person he is today.

Axel, the President of the Angels in Leather, needs to get his hands on Meadow and the information her father gave her.  They used to be friends, but the second her father betrayed him, he changed.  He is angry, dark and out to get what he wants and doesn’t care if he hurts Meadow to get it.

Meadow at times wants to stop the running.  She knows that if Axel gets his hands on her that it won’t be good, but she is a fighter and she promised her dad that she would deliver that package.  She hates Axel now.  He killed her father, took the only parent she had away from her.  She has been attracted to him for years but knows that he isn’t the same guy who used to come by and see her.  He is dark and mean and nothing like the man she used to know.  Seeing how much he had changed really hurt her, especially when he does something she never thought he would do just to get information.

Axel is seriously is screwed up.  He was betrayed by Meadow’s father and suffered at the hands of a rival MC.  He has nightmares, he isn’t the same person he used to be.  He is darker, angrier, a massive asshole and out to get that package from Meadow and doesn’t care what it takes to do it either, even if it means taking her life.  He knows that he has basically shut down all of his emotions but Meadow brings out more than hate or anger.  He doesn’t want to care about her but yet when her life is threatened (by someone else mind you) he protects her even while at the same time he is competing for the asshole of the year award.

When Axel and Meadow finally come together it is explosive, hot and dirty.  Axel’s issues, make him want sex a certain way and when he finds out that Meadow will give it to him it is almost like they were meant for each other.  Meadow helps to heal Axel even when she doesn’t know exactly what happened to him.  When tragedy strikes you see how much these two are a part of each other.  The connection is there from the start but the journey is not just a painful one but one that could have had them hating each other forever.

I really loved this book.  Angels In Leather at times is a dark, dirty read that had me addicted from the start.  It also is sexy and shows that even damaged people can be healed by the right person.  I couldn’t put this book down once I started and wanted more instantly when I finished.  Bella Jewel knows how to write an MC series and has not disappointed me yet. 

There are others who have made comments in regards to another series by another author who I also happen to love that have stated that Angels In Leather has aspects of that other series because the male character has issues, is an alpha, an asshole and dominant in not only his actions but words at the same time.  I am going to say that I am sorry but Angels In Leather is it’s OWN story, with it’s OWN characters and come on people let’s face it all MC books have some things in common but that does not mean that one author used what another has written for their own. Saying that only one author can have the alpha asshole depraved biker who has suffered something that marked them is like saying that no one else can have blue eyes because you do.  It just is immature and hurtful. 

Ms. Jewel has stated that this MC series will be the last she writes and Ms. Jewel if you are reading this review, please continue and don’t stop as the fans of your books want more.

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 fuck 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 dick 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.”

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Masked Innocence by Alessandra Torre





Masked Innocence Blog Tour

 Masked Innocence Cover FINAL largeThe man was sinful. It wasn't just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up… Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she's starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he's determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she's in danger of falling too deep and too fast. But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she's forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.

Review

WELCOME BACK ALESSANDRA! Yes, I know she has put out other books, which I enjoyed immensely, but I've been waiting for this book for two long years. I wanted to know how Brad and Julia's relationship went after Blindfold Innocence left off and I'm here to tell you that Masked Innocence is more than I expected and was surprised on the direction the author took us to. To tell you the truth, I thought this was going to be a swinger lifestyle book. I mean, we get that but it's not the focal point. It's so much more than that. It's about two people who make self discoveries and with each other, starting a new journey.

Brad and Julia are like no other couple that I've read before. And I read a lot (like a lot, a lot) so that's saying something. Julia knows Brad's history with women and he makes no apologies for it. I love how Brad is so open about himself. Especially when he talks about his past lovers that Julia doesn't dwell on it. It's where it is, in the past. I love how they accept each others past and build to the now and future. I love their honesty. I love how they call out bullshit. I love how there is no jealousy. I love their bantering. I love their openness in their communication. Towards the end, there's the restaurant scene that absolutely blew me away. Basically, I just love this couple. This couple is new to me because of all that I listed above. Their story just flows perfectly.

Let's get down to the sex. I don't know how the author does it but JEEZUS, does she know how to write some pretty amazing fucking sex/love scenes. I'm a visual person so imagine my mind going full throttle with what I read. There's an office scene...I had to turn on the fan with that one. Smokin'. Scorchin'. Just. Fucking. Hot. Aaaaand how could I forget the orgy party. Or the threesome. There's slight m/m and there's some f/f/m action. Brad has this highly sexual appetite and Julia is more than capable to fulfill his needs.

The author writes some of the best dialogue between a man and woman. PERIOD. Hell, some of the best writing I've come across. She's taking us to the next level with her mad writing skills and I'm here to say to put her on your TBR pile STAT. You will not be disappointed.

Favorite lines:

"Open your mouth."

"God, I need you, Julia, so fucking bad."

"What?"
"You are someone I could fall in love with."

Excerpt

Gorgeous, sexy, and feral, the closer we came to the party, the more intense Brad's eyes became. He was aroused, I realized. He had taken only one item from Carlos, a black executioner’s hood. I was both scared and excited to see what it would look like on.

We got in the car and I waited till the driver shut the door before I turned to him. “I-”

His mouth was on me before I got the second word out. He cupped my chin in his hand and took my mouth with his. He pulled hard on my neck and I leaned forward, his other hand grabbing to pull me on his lap. I straddled him, grinding against his crotch while we kissed. His hands gripped my ass and then traveled in between my legs, and he pulled away from my mouth with a sexy scowl when he felt my panties.

“What’s this?” he murmured, sliding a finger underneath my thong and dipping inside me, causing my eyes to close and my breath to hitch.

“I think they’re called panties,” I whispered, pushing against his hand, wanting more than his finger inside of me.

“You are already wet...” he breathed in wonder, sliding a second finger in with the first, stretching my pussy tight around his digits and moving them together in wonderful unison.

I groaned and ground against him, and he slowly withdrew his fingers, sliding his wet fingers over my clit and then away, and my eyes popped open, missing the pleasure. I pouted down at him.

“I want to keep you hot for the party,” he said gruffly. He looked up at me, smiling in the darkness. “You look so different.”

I tilted my head, grinning. “Good different?”

“I like the normal you better. This is good though, makes me feel like I’m with a strange woman.”
I bit my lip and looked at him deviously. “Strange woman can be bad.”

“I like bad,” he whispered, and I felt his fingers brush my sensitive skin, once again tugging at the lace of my thong.
