Carrie’s Favorite Books of 2015

To be honest, this year was a difficult one, both personally and reading-wise.  I found it harder to connect to characters and had little patience for plots to roll out. Thankfully, this year is ending on a high note and I very much look forward to 2016!  Listed are a few of my favorite books this year…. [Read more…]

Review: The Skeleton King by Lauren Gilley

skeleton kingReviewed by Carrie

By now you’ve all realized my love for this contemporary series.  The author calls it a “southern family drama with bikers” and I think that’s a pretty fair scant description.  I think of it more as a romantic suspense with richly drawn characters who happen to be outlaw bikers.  This is the fourth story in the series and is not a standalone. Start at the beginning and come thank me later.

Kingston Walsh, Lean Dogs MC Vice President and resident magic money man, usually has a solution for most problems the MC comes up against.  He’s the mastermind behind the Dartmoor complex, having successfully acquired legitimate diverse businesses to bolster the MC’s coffers.  Walsh is the first person that the club turns to when they find out that there are developers looking to buy the horse farm that the club’s “graveyard” property abuts.  As a former jockey, Walsh knows all about horse farms.  He convinces the club that their best shot at protecting their interests would be to buy the farm.

Review: Price of Angels by Lauren Gilley

I recently gushed about the epic and gritty MC book, Fearless. It was a doozy!! Even though I took a little time apart from Dartmoor, I was eager to get back into the series.  This book is about half the length of the first but provided plenty of time to spend with the Lean Dogs MC; and that is really the heart of this series.   The story is almost divided in half, with romance one part and the MC/suspense the other.   This is not a standalone book.

Review: Keep You by Lauren Gilley

keep youReviewed by Carrie

Ever since I fell in love with Lauren Gilley’s Dartmoor motorcycle series, I’ve been itching to hit her back list.  Gilley seems to like to write about extended families, which is awesome because they are usually my favorite kind of books. This is the first book in her contemporary series where readers are introduced to the blue collar southern Walker family.

Joanna “Jo” Walker has always felt fortunate to have her family.  As the youngest of the five siblings and proud tomboy, Jo often tagged along with her two older brothers, Mike and Jordan, growing up.  Cupid’s arrow hit Jo at the tender age of 10 when Mike brought home his friend, Tammeron “Tam” Wales, for their regular yard football game.  As time went on, Tam became a constant fixture in the Walker household and Jo’s feelings only intensified until one day she found out that the feelings were mutual.

Review: Fearless by Lauren Gilley

My MC-book loving friends… have I got a treat for you! This book was originally released as a serial but is now packaged as one big honkin’ book. A 700+ page novel that you will want to set away for when you have the time to sit and indulge because you will not want to stop. If alpha bikers, forbidden romance, violence, suspense and the brotherhood of an MC are your thing, then keep reading. [Read more…]
