Note to anyone reading this review you know a book is great when you have to look up synonyms for amazing This book blew me away I loved every single minute reading this book, I didn t want it to end and when I finally read the last page I felt like I was about salivating for the next book especially after the sneak she gives us at the end I have really loved all the books in this series but this book somehow takes it to another level The characters were extraordinary, the story was amazing, and [...]
So much better than the first two I loved these two, they were wonderful together They had the spark, they had the chemistry, they had everything they needed to make this a wonderful book.
I enjoyed this much than I thought I would I have problems with reading badly or unedited books which is why I DNF d Making the Cut, the first book in the series This one is greatly improved, and the few errors there were didn t detract from my reading experience.At first I thought Mia was going to get on my wick with her ridiculous decisions, and decided she wasn t the brightest bulb in the box BUT I got used to her quirkiness and batty behaviour which was balanced out by her daughter s maturi [...]
Out of the Ashes is now available for preorder on Get it here Out Ashes Sons Coming at you on March 1st.
Ding, ding, ding, Yes we have a winner here I read this last night and loved it 4 stars, maybe up to 4.5.The best of the 3 full length ones in the series She s definitely getting better grammar editing wise.Some mild spoilerish info may followI thought the mother daughter relationship was adorable, and it reminded me of all the good stuff between the mum and daughter from the Gil Girls I loved seeing a fun, sensible and NOT broken teenage girl there s not many out there in booklandia and it make [...]
Anne Malcolm has basically rewritten Kristen Ashley s At Peace but imho, she has actually improved on it I would not call it plagiarism, rather inspired by I mean, she even inserted a couple of nods to the source of her inspiration, having the characters utter how at peace they are in this new burg they ve moved to.I had no love for KA s At Peace but I overall enjoyed Anne Malcolm s Out of the Ashes Her H is hot as hell and not the Big Fat Jerk that his KA prototype was The h was still a bit of [...]
Re read 3 26 17 3,5 stars.Wow this one was so much better than book 1, which I didn t care for much.It definitely had an At Peace by Kristen Ashley vibe to it, yet there were big parts that were completely different Even though I still found that the heroine gave in too easily, at least she wasn t a lame airhead like the heroine from book 1 A lot of people commented that this book made them think of The Gil Girls and I would have to agree with them This didn t bother me in the least because I lo [...]
This was so KA like it seemed to be fanfic Too much like At Peace The witty retorts and comments of the h and the daughter were too stilted and didn t seem natural both got on my nerves Took me days to read wanted to DNF a couple of times but made myself persevere I might have rated better if it was KA inspired not exactly like KA Don t know if I ll read other books by this author 2 At Peace loving stars.
3 Stars, Just an OK read for me.I have to say that as much as I have been enjoying this series, I can t help but feel that this story about Bull and Mia was on the disappointing side for me I didn t quite feel connected to Bull and or Mia, I am not sure exactly why honestly but I just wasn t feeling their story Mia and Lexie s backstory, well mainly Mia, was heartbreaking and I mean when we finally get all the pieces of her broken past, I was crushed for her I loved that she and Lexie were so c [...]
Reread September 2016 Despite being so distracted the first time through, this book popped in my head and I decided to reread it This time I was able to focus on the story and the dialog which in its own right, was great I enjoyed it much this time around and had a much better reading experience So despite my earlier concerns, I am increasing my stars because this book worked for me I like the way this author writes and I hope to see unique books that show off her talents On one hand, I enjoye [...]
Super duper, awesome, freaking fantastic, OTT alpha read Ah maz ing characters, Mia and Lexie hilarious characters, Mia and Zane are both broken people who find an amazing soul mate once in a life time love Hot sexy times, continued characters, great story, all the club and their gals are back, so many LOL moment, More kidnappings and rescues, bad guys BAD Zane kick As biker turned bad as biker dad Hope Lexi and Killians story next or soon Anyone who loves KA s Rock Chick series should check thi [...]
I have read all of the books in this series and each book just gets better and better in both quality and substance If you like, or love as I do, the MC biker genre you should like this series This book can be read as a standalone but reading all of the books in order will give you the backstory of the main characters Bull has faced loss and has shut himself off from getting close to anyone His girlfriend was previously killed as a result of club violence and he agonizes over his failure to prot [...]
I started this with high hopes but was soon distracted by how much it copied Kristen Ashley s style as well as the Gil Girls Kristen Ashley needs to trademark her brand of hot guys on motorcycles who give chin lifts while grinning at how adorable the heroine is Then the Gil Girls creators should get royalties from this story of a cute, quirky single mom of a levelheaded bookworm teen daughter who also happens to be a hotel manager who loves coffee, junk food, and pop culture references.
Note for me dead ex and slept once with some bimbo after meeting the heroine
I knew Bull story was heartbreaking, it was ugly and painful but dear god there were parts I wanted to strangle him But none the less I loved him and Mia was perfect for him and the way he was with Lexy and Lexy with him was perfect I m a sucker for single parent stories so when I saw that Mia had a kid I was exited to see how Bull the brooding, silent, torture, enforcer of The Sons of Templar was going to react to the kid but to my surprise it wasn t I little kid like I m use to read but a 16 y [...]
It s getting absolutely ridiculous at how Anne Malcom s words continue to slay me My whole mind is blank right now There are no words to explain the excruciating pleasure I got from reading Bull s story My heart hurt so much for him Bull is officially my favourite ever hero of Anne s Nobody compares to him His filthy mouth is dirtier than you can ever imagine His intensity will absolutely burn you from the inside out He is a sweet combination of rough and gentle that will have you melting into a [...]
Review in Portuguese and EnglishMARAVILHOSO Esta s rie fica cada vez melhor Eu tinha muita curiosidade sobre o her i e como seria a hero na que conquistaria o cora o dele.A autora n o decepciona.A hero na maravilhosa e com um senso de humor peculiar Dei muitas risadas com ela e a filha dela As duas tem di logos sensacionais.O her i muito atormentado com a culpa pela morte da esposa dele e fica muito incerto quanto aos sentimentos que a hero na desperta nele.Eu ri muito e chorei em algumas passag [...]
read this as a standalone and enjoyed it book 5 in the series was a dnf for me but i liked this one much better i was always a fan of gil girls so i liked mia and her daughter the banter between them was funny at times maybe over the top at others actually a little too much like gg at times tbh being that the daughter didnt come off 15 like 20 they were obsessed with coffee and mia worked at a hotel desk and had her kid at 16 you know what it got way too much at times but i liked the book anywa [...]
It is well written and the dual POV is handled well, not repetitive like it can be But I get Bull is a tortured soul and he feels guilty but I never understand why a tortured past means the hero is allowed to treat the heroine so badly, even be unkind and cruel The heroine has had a hard past too, even if it is just being a single parent, without any dark past The fact that he is amazing to her later didn t wash with me, almost felt she d have been better off without him I almost didn t finish i [...]
An author new to me and I enjoyed her writing I loved the artwork on the cover and was attracted The lady and her 16 year old daughter move to a town and meet the gritty biker who lives across the street The gals are hilarious and so much fun Zane Bull is alpha mute and so rude to Mia that he doesn t deserve her IMHO Mia and Lexie come at Bull with kindness and affection He really is a jerk that is slowly cracking his walls You ll like the characters.even the bad guys are written bad There is a [...]
DISCLAIMER TO MY FELLOW GOODREADERThis review is my personal opinion and may contain spoilers, quotes, rants and swearing.33 year old Amelia Mia Spencer recently moved to Amber, California from Washington DC with her 16 year old daughter Lexie Mia is the new manager of the coastal spa retreat The Cottage that is owned by her surrogate parents With a daughter wise beyond her years, Mia embarks on life in small town Apparently filled with gorgeous women dressed in designer clothes and ruggedly han [...]
I LOVE BULL I knew in book one this man had a heavy story, but I wasn t as prepared for the emotions that he brought out I can t imagine falling for character in book than man BRAVO BRAVO to the author on making this story amazing than I thought possible.
I liked this story but I didn t love it This story had a dash of a KA feel to it which was great but there was something missing and I can t quite put my finger on what exactly it is Both main characters, Mia and Bull, have tragedies haunting their pasts that prevents them from fully living and enjoying their lives Mia due to an abusive previous relationship and Bull due to a tragic ending to his one real relationship due to an issue with another MC Both situations were horrific but both charact [...]
4.5 starsBull is your typical damaged and angry alpha male that speaks in grunts Mia is a strong and sassy woman that has just moved to town with her daughter Lexie Out of Ashes has your typical push and pull with the two leads but it is also about Mia and her daughter saving Bull Just by being themselves they are able to give him things that he doesn t think he deserves Bull is in pain and not really living Lucky for him he doesn t stand a chance at not falling for the funny mother and daughter [...]
This book read like a fanfiction of KA And sometimes thats a bad thing, but with this story I didnt mind it I did like it, however while reading it, I had the storyline of At Peace by KA in my head, so I kept waiting for similar things to happen in this book I didnt always happen, but some things did I think Anna could have kept the style but not for 70% of the storyline view spoiler neighbor, broody big man, single mom with daughter, hidding from stalker, death of her family, bootycall relation [...]
My favorite book of Anne s yet Book 3 of the SOT series start with Making the Cut to avoid spoilers Mia and Bull Oh my heart Both have loved and lost so much, but find unexpected love and restored souls in each other And for from Lexie and crew, Check our Anne s spin off series Unquiet Minds You ll thank me for it
While I basically liked the characters, Zane and Mia, there was a huge Gil Girls effect going on between the h, Mia and her daughter, Lexie The funny, witty repartee was often forced and not very funny or witty Having said that, the story was good if predictable, and on the whole, I enjoyed it.
It s like KA s the Burg series meets SOA meets Gil Girls This reminded me of Joe my fav KA hero and Violet s story and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
