Redline Final med


Synopsis

When you’re this close to the redline, there’s no room for error —or second chances. A sought after car thief for hire, Colt will do anything for a high—anything for the deafening rush of blood and chemicals that tames the ongoing anarchy in his mind. Fast cars, pain, alcohol, women… his vices come in many flavors, but one woman tempts him closer to the line he can never come back from. She’ll be his hardest theft yet—an action that will set the looming conflict with his brother on a new and violent path. Aubrey has two choices. The first she knows too well: the alluring businessman who entwined her in his deceptive plots. The second is a stranger. He makes his promises not with a silver tongue but with harsh, blunt observations that Aubrey can’t ignore. Either way, she’s caught between two brothers each seeking the other’s downfall—and neither has a problem taking her down in the process 


Review

I want pain, because pain is the only thing real— the only thing we control and share. The only result of every relationship— every life.

If you had a choice would you choose to put your life in the hands of the evil you know for the next two years or the evil of the unknown for the next six months? 

That is exactly what Aubrey finds herself deciding.  She’s a good girl who has gotten herself caught up in some trouble and the only way out may be to sell herself to a man who is only after one thing when it comes to her.

Sex



Devlin loves two things in life.  Cars and Women. He likes the rush, the danger, the unknown. But Devlin has particular tastes when it comes to women.  He very rarely finds someone who “does it” for him, until now.  She is young and naive and even though he knows he should stay away from her, he can’t.  He knows the type of trouble she is in and he is willing to help her out and “protect” her from the man she has found herself under for way too long.  But not before he plays with her a little. Seeing fear and fight in women is exactly what he is looking for and he will do what it takes evoke that in Aubrey.   And to get her to be his.

He isn’t doing it to help her.

He isn’t doing it to save her.

He isn’t doing it because it’s the right thing.

He is doing it because he wants to fuck her.  He wants to claim her and use her for his own pleasure for as long as she can hold his interest- which in his experience isn’t very long. 

And he is willing to pay a hefty penny to have her. 



"Choosing Colt could take me either way. The possibility that he'd land me in deeper was about equal to the chance he might get me out."


This is a fast paced storyline that once you start you will not want to stop.  The romance side of it isn’t quite there yet but since this is the first of a novella series, I am hoping it is coming.  Ignition is about fear and trust, honesty and lies.  Fast cars and control.  I absolutely loved it.  I loved Devlin- even though he is twisted with the games he plays with Aubrey.   I think Aubrey has a strong soul but is lost.  She got swallowed up in a fantasy world that turned to a nightmare.  The evil is still lurking, it’s just a matter of time before it catches up to her. 


****4 STARS****

Excerpt
The last song of the night faded while the bartender cleared up after final orders, and I watched Aubrey stumble back toward the employee only door. Damn, naive thing had no idea what she’d gotten into—or did she? I popped a piece of gum in my mouth to get rid of the stale taste. I knew exactly what Devlin had in mind. I’d watched it happen—and it never ended well. He backed them into a corner, teased and taunted until they’d do just about anything to be free from him. This time, he’d gone a little heavy on the drugs, meaning she was more sensitive than he anticipated, or he had big plans for the evening. Why did I care? Why did I look into those clouded grey eyes and feel a pang of desire? Desire to have her bent over a table, taking my cock—a desire to keep my brother from getting there first. It wasn’t as if I was leading any moral high ground. The things I wanted to do to women, well, that was an entirely different matter—one that didn’t require drugs or sweet talk. One that propelled me toward the employee door. No one would stop me—they all knew better. Backstage had already erupted into the traditional post-closing party. Most days, I was shocked that anyone survived working at Addiction. Not that I was one to talk, but I wondered if any of the employees experienced a sober moment inside the building. The club lived up to its name—a constant stream of debauched activity even when doors were closed to the public. Devlin found ways to get medical records of every single employee since there wasn’t a damn thing they were above sharing. And that’s why I never touched the girls. Until now. I told myself it didn’t count if I got there first.

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible...but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Excerpt
His laughter, it didn’t really sound the smallest bit amused. “Christ. You’re done here.”
“Ah, no. I’m actually not. Now see, this is where we have a problem.” I folded my arms. Then unfolded them because like fuck I’d look defensive. He was the one in the wrong, not me. “You’re not prepared to take me, or my feelings, seriously. What you want is to hide away in Mr. Too Cool for Commitment land and just play with my affections when it suits you. Okay, I’ve accepted that. But none of that means it’s okay for you to come in here and act like you’re the boss of me. None of it.”
“That so?” he asked, leaning down so that we were almost nose to nose.
“That’s so, baby.” I play-punched him in the shoulder, which it should be noted, I barely came up to. Okay, so maybe the alcohol on a mostly empty stomach had made me slightly/lots braver/sillier. “So why don’t you take your little caveman jealous tantrum bullshit somewhere else. See, I do this funny thing I like to refer to as whatever the fuck I want. Understand?”
He just stared.
“And as pretty as you are with your beard and your muscles, you are too damn tricky and . . . complicated and shit for me.”
“I am?”
“Yes, you are. Are you finally seeing my point here?”
“You bet.”
“Excellent. So take your hotness elsewhere, kind sir. I want no part of it!” Huh. I had so told him. Drunken bravado was the best.

Ella Maise - Lost Prelude

 
Blurb


My name is Maya, and I'm not the same girl I was a month ago.

There is an emptiness I carry around in my chest now. A broken heart caused by grief.
There are also dark nights where I have trouble breathing as I feel the heavy weight of loss rushing through my veins, painful moments where I can remember my entire being scream in agony as I held onto my father's cold, lifeless hand.

Then there is always a hero to every story, isn't there? A hero who I despised from the moment he opened his mouth.

His name is Alexander. He is my inevitable I never expected to find. The one my broken heart leads me to. His existence, his touch, everything he did to make my pain bearable will leave a mark on me forever.

Yet, I know that when I'm gone, he'll only remember me as a fading memory.

About the Author


Ella Maise

I'm an avid reader. Therefore, a big dreamer. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face, and of course sometimes making you crush on fictional characters. I can't even begin to describe how exciting it is to give life to new characters and fall for them. It's definitely a different kind of addiction. I'm still searching for my own happy ending. Until that happens, I'll live vicariously through my own characters.

Trapped in a marriage since the age of twenty-one, Malinda May is finally free. Having lost her biker husband, she is determined to keep her two teenage children as far away from the MC lifestyle as possible, a lifestyle which has brought her nothing but heartache and fear. Life is never that simple. Relentless in their mission to prove to Malinda that not all bikers are bad, the Hawks’ women are determined to support Malinda and her family, whether she wants it or not. In her struggle to keep her distance, Malinda soon battles her desire to keep her family safe or relent and begin to trust the MC.

Tired of women and their mind games, Declan Stoke knows women are only good for keeping his bed warm for a night. Having once thought he’d found the one, he’s no longer willing to put his heart on the line. Even when faced with the temptation of a wounded, sexy woman, he steers clear…well, tries to.

Malinda and Stoke find themselves at an impasse, one seemingly impossible to navigate through. With trouble brewing, life is going to get complicated, and for Malinda, she’s trapped with no way out.





Well damn, Malinda and Stoke...totally.freaking.HOT. This story grabbed me from the get go as usual, for me, when it comes to this series. It's no secret how much I adore the Hawk family, and once again I found myself laughing my ass off their antics and banter, written in true Lila style. Another fun, sexy, light hearted mc story from the fabulous Lila Rose. If you have enjoyed the previous novels in this series then you are sure to enjoy No Way Out and all Malinda and Stoke have to offer

Malinda and Stoke meet under distressing circumstances. Malinda wants nothing to do with her late husband's motorcycle club, or Stoke, one of the Hawk's members, despite how her body betrays her when she thinks of the sexy, charming biker. Soon enough, she realises not only does she need their protection, but she likes Stoke, she enjoys his company, how he makes her feel. And for a woman who has spent most of her life denied of love, companionship and happiness,  she decides to give in and just enjoy the now.

While getting to know the Hawk family, the men, their fabulous women and of course Julian and Matty, Malinda and her children find themselves adjusting to the mc lifestyle while for the first time in their lives feeling the love of good man and father figure in Declan Stoke.

No Way Out is sexier and steamier than ever before. Lila, Lila...you know those sexy parts I'm talking about, yep, those! HOT.DAMN. Is all I can say. This story is full of passion, love, laughter, loyalty and just the right amount of drama. We also get introduced to some interesting new characters, some of which I'm dying to know more about. Amongst an intriguing storyline to keep you turning the pages, amazing characters, all well developed, is another laugh out loud, well written story from the talented Lila Rose. I feel she really stepped up her game in this book, the story flowed perfectly thanks to her fabulous writing. I always, always enjoy reading from this woman. Her humour makes me question were the hell she comes up with some of the lines these loveable characters come out with! Thank you Lila, now back at it lady! I'm anxious for more from my favourite Hawk club members.

Reviewed By Bel Burgess



   Damn Declan Stoke and his…amazingness. I’d gone to bed last night as horny as an animal in heat. Maybe I was in heat? Do women do that? That kiss, his luscious lips upon mine was divine.
Still, in a way, I was thankful Mrs Cliff had interrupted, because if she hadn’t, I would have been naked on that couch, straddling Stoke, while my children were in their rooms. That was the worse a mother could do.
He drove my body insane in the most delicious way possible. He also drove my mind insane with how it felt like he knew me.

I was born in Brisbane, Australia. My step-dad was in the Army, which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age. Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wrote Senseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon I was back to the Hawks series with number two Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance, which is out now.

Excerpt from Twisted Together (MITD, #3)

Desire unfurled faster and faster in my belly.

Q frowned, impossibly making him more roguish and handsome. “Tess…? How do you feel?”

How did I feel? Amazing. Lusty. Powerful. Consumed.

I stretched again, arching my back as water lapped around my body. I wanted to moan with how good I felt. I’d never been so warm or contended or horny.

My eyes snapped to Q’s. Him. I had to have him.

“You’re so beautiful,” I murmured. Q froze, his eyes searching mine. Slowly, his lips turned up into half a smile.

I pressed my thighs together. I couldn’t stop my body from overheating and needing. I’d been cursed or charmed—some sort of potion lived inside. I had no other explanation for how much I needed him.

I laughed, throwing myself headfirst into whatever spell I was trapped in. My voice fell from my mouth, tinkling and chiming like a bell. Was that truly me? I sounded magical. I sounded like a princess straight from a storybook.

Who was I? Sleeping Beauty who’d been woken by her prince?

My eyes locked onto Q’s. No. I was the one who’d fallen head over heels for a beast who spoke in foreign tongues.

Tongue.

A flush of heat and wetness built between my legs. I would give anything to have his tongue on me. I wanted his head between my thighs. I wanted his fingers clawing at my hips. I wanted to be used, bruised, adored.

Q cocked his head, chuckling under his breath. “I think Franco miscalculated the dose.”

I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart, sending tiny orgasms exploding in my veins.

I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed.
