I Belong To You Synopsis: Jones I Belong to You

Master… Being that person, that man is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.

A few changes.......Facebook/ Twitter

Hello Everyone,
 
So I have been thinking about this for a while and I have decided to switch from updates via Facebook to Twitter. Facebook has been limiting post viewing for a while now and it's getting really hard to connect to the audience so I will switching to using Twitter as this seem to generate more hits and get more activity from authors. I will leave the Facebook page up for now as I may use it now and again but this blog and the Twitter will main sources.
 
You can see my twitter feed down the side if would like to follow the blog.
 
I can't believe I have been blogging for a year now and I have really enjoyed it and I hope to continue and by not doing so much on Facebook I should have the time.
 
Keep reading :-)

Being kidnapped by bikers is a harrowing experience, but for some reason, Laurie doesn’t feel as terrified as she should. The leader’s steely eyes soften when he looks at her, and the others in his gang clearly know she’s hands off. But does that include Steele's hands? Her brain resists him, but her body insists she wants those big hands all over her.

Steele doesn’t know how he wound up in this mess–with a kidnapped woman on his hands and the police hot on their trail. Now he and Laurie are in hiding at an isolated cabin, and Steele has to figure out how to extricate himself...and steer clear of his accidental captive whose tight, slinky clubbing attire is making him think all kinds of dangerous thoughts…

 My Review

Warning this review may contain spoilers for the series.

This review will include all 6 books that make up the series. Each book is fairly short and is about 50-80 pages long so they are all quick reads. Books 1  to 3 are currently release and the other instalments will be released over the coming weeks.

The series is about Laurie and Steele. Steele kidnaps Laurie for her own protection from her ex-boyfriend. Therefore Laurie has to get use to the life in the biker club and also can she protect herself from Steele and fight off her ex.

I am so glad that I had each book to read back to back as a few of them had slight cliff-hangers. There is a strong attraction and chemistry between Steele and Laurie. I really liked there banter and there was also plenty of hot scenes throughout the series (especially in book 2) .The only thing that I did’nt get in the series and was at times a little uncomfortable was Steele sharing Laurie with his crew. She was meant to be the women he loved and cared for, didn’t get the need to share. It seemed to go against his alpha male personality.  I liked the way the story progressed and there were lots of twists and turns and it left me guessing at times what was going happen. The secondary characters were also great and really added to the story.

I didn’t realise that when I started this there had already been two other books on the series about other characters on the series and I will be checking these out as I would love to read their stories.

Overall a great hot sexy biker series that I’m sure fans of biker stories will love.

My Review
 
4 Stars


An enjoyable student/teacher read.

This review will cover both Unwritten History which is the short novella which come before Re-writing History which the main story.

Unwritten History sets the scene for Re-writing History and introduces to the main characters Jill and Eli. I would recommend that you read Unwritten history as it gives more background to their story.

Jill is a 17 year old student who meets Eli on the internet. They talk for nearly 6 months before they meet. However there a few things that throws a spanner into their relationship 1) Jill lied about for age to Eli and 2) Eli turns out to be Jill’s new supply teacher in history and should be strictly off limits.

I tend to enjoy student/teachers students and the whole forbidden romance story. This seemed a little light-hearted to some I have read but still an enjoyable read. Eli and Jill have a great connection. There was times when I wished that Eli would make his time up, he kept going back and forth. At times both Jill and Eli seemed a little immature but they were faced with a lot of obstacles. These obstacles were quickly dealt with and at times I felt that these could have been explored more they were resolved at times a little too quick for me. This was a fairly quick read for me.

Overall all an enjoyable sweet student/teacher romance story.

Synopsis


Twenty-four year old SharnMacer has spent the last six years looking for love....for that spark. She's failing miserably. After a life changing break up forces her back to her broken home, and into a string of dating disasters, Sharn decides it's time to hang up her heels and take a break from guys. She didn’t expect to find the spark… with the quiet guy from her past. Keefer Smith likes to keep to himself, always has and probably always will. He doesn't have time to date, not when he’s constantly worrying about what state he'll find his father in. Lucky for him, he does have one thing going for him; baseball. He didn’t expect to want more… with the girl he once watched from afar. Back in high school, Sharn would never have looked twice at someone like him, and Keefer would’ve never stood a chance with someone like her. But six years is a long time, and when they find themselves placed in charge of seventeen ninth graders they soon realize they might not be as different as they think. The chemistry is right, even if the timing is all wrong. Sparks will fly, but will they spark love?

excerpt


The Lounge was crammed. Friday nights were always full of students, but it was the best club for a more chilled out vibe. It had two rooms; a bar area and a dance area, then there was a huge covered courtyard. After navigating the queue at the bar, I managed to get us drinks. We wound our way through the crowds of drunken, rowdy college kids, and found an empty sofa at the far end of the courtyard. Sharn’s body moved in time to the music, and from how natural she made it looked, I could tell she liked to dance—something I never did. “It's really busy.” Her words sounded a little slurred. “Are you drunk? You only had two glasses of wine with dinner.” I mocked. I'd switched to soda after a couple of beers—I was driving. “I am not!” She gasped. “I'm just excited. I don't get out all that much.” “What about your friend? The girl I saw you with at 42nds?” She turned her body slightly to face me. “Mae? We work together, and have a Friday night ritual. She's married though.” My eyes glanced over her neck and chest, lingering over her low cut dress. I could just make out the curve of her tits. “Hey.” She snapped her fingers in front of my nose. “My face is here, mister.” Busted. “I can't help where my eyes decide to look. Did you blow off your Friday night ritual with Mae, for me?” She blushed again, and my inner guy punched the air—I affected her as much as she affected me. “Maybe. Hmm-” She hesitated, as if she wanted to ask me something. My stomach pooled with dread. “Can I ask you something? Where did you go last weekend?” Fuck. It would be so easy to tell her the truth—to let her in. But I choked, unable to do it. I didn't want to ruin the night—to see the pity in her eyes. I didn't want her to feel sorry for me. So I played the game I'd been playing from the start. Leaning forward, I dipped my head and swept her hair away from her shoulder with my hand. As I brushed my lips against the soft spot underneath her ear, she trembled and I whispered, “Not tonight. I'll tell you, but not tonight.” She let out a breathy sign as I curved my arm around her waist and pulled her body flush to mine. Our lips found each other's, and I knew. This was it for me. She was it. But she still knew nothing about me, and that scared the shit out of me. I had to tell her. And soon. Or I'd lose her. Someone like Sharn wouldn’t play games for long.
