Review: The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones

  Hmmmmmm what can I say about this book? I was super excited about reading this and unfortunately it fell a bit flat for me. I loved the first book  The Silver Swan, and was so excited to learn more about this F’ed up world, but there really wasn’t any answers just more questions. I anticipated this book would build the Elite Kings up and we would learn so much but that never really happened. At the end of the previous book Madison had run away and I thought YES now we’ll get our answers but nope it was a bit choppy her being away and then she just up and came back when she was told but with the mentality that she was going to play their game but get her answers.

Yes. I don’t trust them at all. Though I’m probably dreaming, I’ve never gone down without a fight, so it’s my turn to start playing the dealer, and these boys are about to become my pawns.

Madison says this but never lives up to it. And when she asks questions she never gets an answer and just leaves it at that. It’s super frustrating, she just lets these people walk all over her and play her but doesn’t do anything about it, but she’s supposed to be this bad ass bitch and that never really comes through. Also “the book” situation is super frustrating because she has a lot of the answers she needs in this huge book and has read like 11 pages! She was gone for 2 months moping and being critical about why she left but instead of reading the book in full to get a lot of her answers she just lets “the book” sit there. I actually really enjoyed Madison in the first book this book took a whole new turn for me and I’m not really enjoying her as much.

“Trust no one. Fear no one. Fuck everyone,” 

Great moto to live by if she actually stuck by it! All this aside the story drew me in and I wanted to find out what happened next but was a little disappointed with the lack of answers and even story line really. It just kinda ran in circles. There is clearly going to be another book since this ended on another cliffy (which I hate by the way), however I’m a little apprehensive to read it. The reason for this is I think it’s going to end up an information dump, she could have answered some of the questions that NEED answers in this book so we would have something to look forward to in the next but so far this book almost seemed like filler. I think I should have stuck with my normal routine of waiting for all books in a series to be out then binge read them because right now I’m feeling pretty let down. There were a few discoveries that go a long way into figuring out what is happening, and it’s a sign of good writing when you can’t guess, and right now I have no idea what is going to come of all of this. However I do look forward to the last and final book so we can get the answers I just hope it isn’t an info dump with too much going on that we have a hard time understanding it all. At the end the author has this to say:

 Tacet a Mortuis (Whispers from the Dead), the final book told from Madison, and now, Bishop, coming soon.

I think it will be good to get into Bishop’s head a bit in the next one, maybe some insight into his crazy will give us some answers haha.

Now one thing that I read in reviews before I read the first book was that it was a little unbelievable with them being in high school and during the first one I kinda enjoyed that they were, it just gave it a bit more of a “fun” factor. Not so much in this one, to me it was a little over the top that Bishop is this high powerful person who is in high school and it’s not just the school he’s running but he is “so much more”. Not that we have those answers yet because that’s all glossed over. If you’ve read the Silver Swan then I suggest you read this one too but I think it’s more of a lead into the final book so don’t go in thinking you’ll learn much. There are some pretty big reveals that you’ll need to know going into the third book. I like the story line and am interested in the third book NOW so I can have all my questions answered. I would recommend this series, it is interesting but this book didn’t have me on the edge of my seat yelling that I love it as much as the first book did. Happy Reading!

Here is my review for The Silver Swan if you missed it!

Review: All The Sky by Susan Fanetti

  This is book five in the Signal Bend series. It’s another great read but I actually think this story had a bit more depth to it, within the characters, especially Havoc. Havoc is the hero and he is pretty fucked up and he admits it. Cory is the heroine and she is pretty much everything Havoc needs, plus she is a great mom. I did find that she was a little childish when she got angry with the fuck you as her reply to everything. She also was always hitting at Havoc. I say hitting at cause, I mean she couldn’t really hurt him, but it was still a silly way to try to get your point across.

And then Cory flew at Havoc. It was a night of firsts, because he’d never had a chick go quite so thoroughly apeshit on him before. He’d pissed off plenty of women in his time, but usually they just yelled or flipped him off. He’d never even been slapped by any woman other than his mother. And this one was full-on gonzo, fists flying, pushing and hitting, screaming, “SON OF A BITCH! PIECE OF SHIT! ASSHOLE! MOTHERFUCKER!” She seemed a little pissed off.

This was one of the worst ones and she had every right to be angry but she was being angry at the wrong person in this case. She does admit to being like this a lot and she needed to work on it so at least she understood she was in the wrong, just not till after. But other than that she was actually the perfect fit for Hav, cause she didn’t need to be in his business all the time. They work together really well. Also they had some really sexy scenes together. Where Bart had the sexy talk down, Havoc just seemed to have the whole scene down and it was hot!

Havoc was a little bit, ok a lot of a jerk most of the time but I actually think he is a really great guy. He just has a lot going on in his head. He also had a jackass for a father but not the regular drunk, jacks his kid around kinda dad. The cold heartless loved his wife but could have done without kids kinda dad. So he was kinda fucked up from his childhood but doesn’t realize it till he sees how Cory treats her son and how they act together.

“My old man beat me. I guess you figured that out. He didn’t do it angry. Always cool as you please. I never even thought it was wrong, what he did, the way he is. Not till I saw you and Nolan, the way you are. I thought I was raised normal. That’s the kind of father I know. Cory, I can’t be a father like my old man was. It fucked me up—up and down and sideways, it fucked me. I’m hardly human. But I don’t know what being a good father even looks like.

A lot happens in this book emotion wise, not bad emotion. A lot of growth for Havoc since he didn’t do relationships or even any girl besides a club whore. And he fought himself left and right about being with Cory but he soon figures out he needs her. She fought it a bit also but in a different way, she didn’t want to get hurt. This story was a very thrilling ride and I think that next to Bart this is my favorite and it may even pass Bart’s story because of everything that happened in this book. When these two were just being the two of them with no bullshit between them, they were actually very playful and it was fun to read. I really enjoyed these two together all of it actually.

 “Pruning back the rose bushes. Don’t come in here. There are thorns everywhere.” He ignored her and came in, bending down to pull her up. “You shouldn’t be crawling around on the ground.” “Hav, it’s not the seventeenth century. Everybody knows that normal activities won’t hurt the baby. Shit, some women, like, do marathons when they’re eight months pregnant. I’m fine.” He kept pulling, until she gave in and let him lead her onto the grass. “Those women are stupid bitches and not mine. Look at your arms.” She snatched her hands out of his grip. “Barely scratches. I’ll wash up when I’m done. You need to chill out, Hav. The bean and I are fine. He’s been doing somersaults today. He feels great. Very peppy.”

They could be really cute together especially since the could fight with extreme emotion also. As you can tell I love this series it is just was I was looking for! I am definitely a fan and recommend this series so far. Lots of action, suspense, feels, steam, it has it all. That being said I think I am going to take a few book break and read a few other books then come back. Cleanse my palate a little so I don’t get too lost in the writing. However that being said I really want to pick up the next book to see what happens next! I think some pretty crazy times are up ahead so I want to have the time and the head space for what happens next, I think shit is going to hit the fan! Hopefully I’m ready for it……..Happy Reading!

Havoc had known the kind of man he was. A man for whom his love for his family was everything. The man he’d once been had not wanted any of this—no woman, no children, no family but the Horde. The profound changes he’d undergone made no sense or rhyme or reason. But Cory had changed everything. Loving her had changed everything . She had healed scars he’d forgotten about, whose presence had shaped him in ways he had not even been aware of before her. He’d thought he’d been happy. He’d been wrong. Now, even as the club contended with another difficult time, another great enemy, Havoc’s life was brighter and bigger and freer than he’d ever thought it could be, like a long, open road canopied by an infinite sky. He would not fail her. He would not fail their family.

Review: In Dark Woods by Susan Fanetti

  This is a novella in the series. Do Not Read this until you have read Alone On Earth! I can not believe how sad this book was, I cried through damn near the whole book. This one goes back to Isaac and Lilli and I can’t tell you ONE damn thing about it without ruining the whole fricking story but it was fantastic. I honestly was a blubbering mess! I loved it though, it was just so real. By this point I feel like these people are my friends, that I am a part of their group (without one of the hot bikers for myself haha). I feel every heartache and break that they feel. I actually find myself going to talk about them as if they are real people, this is just crazy. It’s one of the reasons I love these kinds of series but also one of the reasons I hate it because when they hurt, I hurt. And there was a lot of hurt in this book, too much, but that being said it does end on a happy note so that’s an upside. Just beware of a lot of work to get to the happy but it’s worth it! I’m sitting here trying to find something else to add but I can’t without ruining the whole thing so I’m done it’s short but I guess it is a novella and a great addition to the series, a heart hurting, eyes red addition but a great one none the less. Grab this series folks I love it! Happy Reading!

Review: Alone On Earth by Susan Fanetti

  This book! My gosh this book! Bart is my favorite character in this series! I have loved him from the very first book and knew I would love his book and I did. I just love his character the bad ass biker/ nerdy man, this just did it for me. Plus he’s so caring and also the best dirty talker in this series so far. Just a full package this man was. Phew, made the story even better! I can’t even with this book it was just so good, if your going to choose just one book of Susan’s to read this one could be it for you. There was everything in this book great characters, great writing, drama, emotions, hard decisions, steamy moments, and action. Susan has a way of writing that you just get into the story and you FEEL everything. I felt whatever the characters were feeling, I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I was so lost in the story I did not want it to end! I miss Bart now that it’s over. He had so many hard decisions to make, he does seem to get the wrong end all the time. And by the time it’s over he made a decision that was so good for the club but really not great for himself other than for getting Riley out of all of it.

He was a geek with a sarcastic sense of humor. And he was amazing in bed. He paid attention to her. She could feel him really noticing her body and her responses. He could be gentle, and he could be a little rough. He could take her over, and he could let her have her way.

Riley was a little sad with her life, she didn’t do anything for herself and never even stood up for herself until after she got back from Signal Bend. She is 26 years old and doesn’t even really know who she is. Being in Signal Bend even from the first few hours she starts to find herself a little bit. You could feel her frustration but also her growth with standing up for herself. I felt sorry for her but then I kinda felt she could act like a brat when she wanted her way but didn’t want to do anything to get her way. She did grow into standing her ground and it was written so you could feel the growth and didn’t end up hating her for it. She was a good choice for Bart he didn’t need someone who was super hard-core, he needed sweet.

Until recently, except for the hours of sleep, she’d hardly ever been without a companion of one sort or another. And still she’d been completely alone. And now she wasn’t. Now Bart was with her. What he did didn’t matter, because who he was was perfect for her. He was hers.

They both had a lot of pain but not because of anything in particular mostly just many small things that end up causing you pain, however that being said they weren’t downers and they were able to realize that they weren’t alone anymore once they found each other. It was actually such a great story to read! There was even some humor in this one at many points and it was so well placed and totally the way of Bart’s character.

She stood at the side of the pool and slid her jeans off. She did hesitate a bit when she got to her underwear—really? They were going to do this? Outside—naked? And then Bart came streaking across the lawn, cannonballing into the pool. Yep. Dork.

One thing I love about this series is that it is a continuation of the same story line but with different characters. You aren’t left on a cliffhanger per say but you know the next book is going to delve deeper into the story line but with a different couple so you never feel like your missing the previous story or characters. I am in love with this series. It sucks that I can’t tell you what happens in the book cause it would ruin the whole experience for you if you want to get into the series or haven’t read to this point yet. I really don’t want to give away spoilers for this series it is best read not knowing. The series it full of ups and downs, twist and turns, action, romance and just beautiful writing. I recommend these for sure, they aren’t for someone who is queasy with violence and crazy action but a really great read for someone who does enjoy a great MC biker romance with all the crazy added in! Pick up your copy now and enjoy the ride. Happy Reading!

But here, in this quiet, small space, he and Riley were the only people in the world. He was the only person in the world for her, and she was for him. They didn’t have to share each other, their lives, with anyone else. No demands. No expectations. No disappointments. No pasts. No jealousies. They were alone, together.

Review: Into The Storm by Susan Fanetti

  This is the third book in the Signal Bend series. It is about Showdown and Shannon. If you have read the first two (and I suggest you should) you would already know about Show and his awful pain and shitty things he has been through. His poor poor daughter, I could feel his pain in Lilli and Isaac’s story but this book puts a new definition to his pain. I think that this book is a bit more on the light side, but I think every character needed a reprieve from it all. Plus Susan had to deal with Show’s pain and I think she did and amazing job with this.

Show’s first impulse was to refuse, but he took a beat and considered. Ten months had passed, and he’d barely noticed. Ten months since he’d lived. His memory of those last months was almost nonexistent, just stray scenes, almost all of them horrific—Daze’s waxy, lifeless body on a gurney in a post-op room at the hospital. Holly’s rage.

I’m not sure I really like Shannon very much. By the end I liked her for Show because he had patience to deal with her but she came across as very selfish to me. Even with her big reveal of her history I felt she was still acting very selfish. She almost seemed snobbish at times. By the end though she did seem to come out of her shell a little and wasn’t so ‘bitchy’ and stuck up her own ass so much.

As for the story it was pretty good with twist and turns but nothing too extreme action wise which turned out to be good for all the characters. The next book is Bart’s book and I think his will be my favorite and the most I’ve looked forward to so far. So I am leaving my review short because I want to move on to more Signal Bend. Happy Reading!

Shannon had come into his life when he was lost in a storm of grief and loss, when the unendurable pain of it had driven him to hollow numbness. And she, too, had been empty, in her own way. They filled each other up. This. This was love. This was forever. It hadn’t been too late.
