Revenge or the love of his life?
Her soul mate versus her family?

Mik and Maddi. Mad Dog and his Angel. Mikhail Kennedy and Madelaine O'Brien. One without the other just doesn't seem right. They're made for each other; soul mates who've survived every obstacle thrown in their way.

Revenge. That dish best served cold. The need for it is eating Mik up inside. Filling him with hatred and blinding him to Maddi's struggle. He wants to avenge every wrong done to them while she wishes to forgive and forget.

A life filled with love and happiness ought to be their destiny. A future filled with pain and regret appears to be the actual outcome. With the love they've fought so hard to protect at stake, can they let go of the past and stop TEMPTING FATE?

“It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll; I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.”
William Ernest Henley

Revenge. The vindictive pleasure it brings has been many a man’s downfall. Its seductive nature, the power it imbues, the satisfaction that settles in your bones knowing that you’ve settled the score, is a craving that’s hard to resist.

My man is strong. Stronger than any I’ve ever known yet I fear his need for retaliation is going to beat him. The Club needs a leader they can trust, a man who sticks to his word, a champion of their code of honor. Me, well I need my lover, my partner, my soul mate to put me first. He needs to be the master of our destiny, the keeper of our fate, while I’m lost in my grief and confusion.

It’s not fair. I know it’s not. Yet, even knowing how much he needs to avenge the wrongs that were brought down on our head—the deception that threatened to tear the Shamrocks apart—I can’t give him what he’s asking for.

My blessing.

To kill my father.

Every fiber of my being accepts that he’s my soul mate. My matching half. The yin to my yang. We both acknowledge that our destiny was sealed when I was just a girl. However, if he continues with his pursuit of vengeance, I fear the outcome will do more than tempt our fate.

It’ll destroy our future.



The wind and my woman at my back.

There’s no better feeling.

Gripping my ape-hangers, I maneuver my Harley to the head of the pack and accelerate. Fuck riding behind Timber right now. Fuck riding with anyone but Lainey. She’s the only person who matters to me, my sole reason for breathing.

I’m free. Jail is nothing but a receding reflection in my side mirror. We’ve survived our latest betrayal. Five months of fucking hell it cost us; leaving my woman to struggle on her own and me locked in a manmade hell-hole. Every fucker who conspired against us is gonna pay. I don’t give a shit whether they call themselves family or friend.

Mik was who they locked up. He was stabbed and beaten; bent and almost broken by a corrupt system and a plan put in place by a man he once loved like a second father.

Mad Dog is who emerged. Spiteful, nasty, bitter, and resentful. He’s hell bent on revenge; bound and determined to rid the world of every cockhead who’s ever done us wrong.

Starting with Beast. Father of the love of my life or not, he’s going to die.

Coming September 30, 2016

It's said that only in our darkest hour do we find light. That may be true for the lucky ones. When your light has been extinguished and pitch-black bleakness has taken hold, you could be excused for doubting that it will ever be reignited.

In the past when people mentioned Joel O'Brien, they talked about "the quiet one". The boy who was the family's voice of reason and their go-to guy for wisdom well beyond his years. Nowadays, they whisper about the "crippled one". The man who radiates darkness, who wallows in his self-pity, and refuses to find a way to deal with the injuries he sustained during the war that recently threatened to engulf the Black Shamrocks MC. 

Sascha Koswalski is the light of her family's life. With a smile that could brighten the day of the most hard-hearted, the single mother uses her innate exuberance to help lessen the pain that afflicts her physiotherapy patients. She's yet to have a patient who doesn't respond to her sunny nature and skilled hands.

Until Joel. The stubborn, angry man might be the one patient she fails. Unable to crack his protective shell, Sascha is on the verge of giving up when Joel saves her from a life-threatening situation. Buoyed by the knowledge that there is a man filled with hope hiding underneath his cold veneer, can the physiotherapist rehabilitate more than his broken body? Will she be the light that reignites his belief in himself and sets them both on the path to FINDING NIRVANA?

DISCLAIMER: This book contains depictions of graphic situations and is not suitable for all readers.

WRENCHED by Emma James *** R E V I E W ***


WRENCHED by Emma James
(Hell's Bastard #1)


4.5 Ruined stars!

I. Am. Free.

But am I?

I don't know how to be happy. My life has never been happy. I can't switch happy on. I don't know where my life goes from here.

Ughhh did I ever mention how much of a love/hate relationship I have with freakin CLIFFHANGERS!? I mean really? This was an an edge of your seat type of story and to know a cliffhanger was to follow? Damn it...

Ok. short rant over, lets get started.







50 Shades of DARK





When you are lucky enough to get dealt with an ARC of this beautiful dark story, it's not guaranteed that you'd be sane again after you have finished it. No. Not a chance in hell withWrenched.

And to say that the story is anything but dark? Yeah that wont happen.

I think to a certain extent, I checked out the day she bled out in front of me. Master William chained me up while he got rid of her body, made me clean up what was left behind.

She was expendable.

She made the mistake of thinking she wasn't.

She had an expiration date.

I mean, how can your mind EVER compete with a messed up bastard that had no soul or conscience, and with what Whisper had to go through, that would be putting it mildly. 

I honestly had no emotional control reading this story. None at all. And damn it if I don't prefer dark stories - it's my thing. With Wrenched, your emotions get hijacked, are never returned and you can't help but feel like you wont be the same person once you finish with the story.

Whisper is enclosed in a life that even the devil wouldn't envy.

Fear is a powerful weapon when you know no different...

You'd think that wanting to be dead rather than stay in her current nightmare would say enough about the type of life that she had. 

A life where anything but your freedom is given. 

A life where someone else is in control of your next breath. 

A life that nightmare would be her dream.

A life full of abuse. And what is worse, what could possible be worse than abuse, the fact that you CAN'T even think of freedom or escape or so much as consider a smile that isn't forced. All of that because Whisper HAS. NO. CHOICE.

I look at Boxer, who winks at me, then I do the only thing I know how to do, and that's take orders.

With that said, the story continues to form in an addictive read that has every element of being both intriguing and easy to read. All the characters were made into their own unique personalities..

With Whisper managing to escape the hands of the devil, surprisingly finding him dead before her, she leaves behind a life that was never a life. She escapes into freedom, but how can that be called freedom when she can't forget her past?

Emma James does a great job at having an easy flowing writing that in a way, counterbalances the dark aspects of that evolved throughout the pages. I couldn't get enough of it.

Whisper finally escapes the hands of the devil. That's how the story begins, and it never truly loses it's adrenaline rush. Not even close.

Knowing all her life that only the black should be welcomed and expected in her life, once she finds Miss Catherine, Lincoln and Boxer she FINALLY but slowly gets a glimpse of what freedom can look like. After moments of pure hesitation, because with everything, old habits die hard,Whisper, for the first time in her "life" smiles a smile that slowly started to move her barely beating heart.

Mentally she can never forget what her life evolved around. Physically AND emotionally she has scars that could almost speak for themselves. 

Even after months of grasping every opportunity in realising what a normal life should have been like, Whisper can never really leave her past.. even if she thinks that everything is over now..

My life became like a piece of wood that somebody had taken a knife to and whittled into a shape, which could only be changed with more whittling. It couldn't be bent. It did what the whittler pleased.


A Soulless Bastards enforcer.

Where to from here?

There are the chicks who would fear us, and then there are the chicks who can't wait to get in our pants. I'm not a hundred percent sure which category she was in at the moment..

She's wild, but in an innocent way.

Revenge + justice are only the beginning, little does he know...

With Edge, I never really knew what to expect. Having read so many MC based books I knew that he would at least be a justice ridden biker with an MC family that would die for one another.

Edge is one of those characters that you expect to be one way, but it's anything but.

I loved that even though his perspective was RIGHT THERE at the beginning, we didn't get to hear from him again until 8 months after Whisper escaped. And boy did I miss him ;)

A sexy, tough and dirty mouthed biker that had one thing on his mind. Revenge. Revenge for the "slut" as he so puts it, that his father left his inheritance to. And who do you think that "slut" would be? I'll give you one guess..

If only he knew that Whisper's relationship (if can even call it anything but survival) with William was of a completely polar fucking opposite of what he was thinking.

I was glad the element of the reader knowing more than the characters was there through parts of the story. It made it believable in a way that makes you wonder how much we truly know about someone else. Judging is so easily BUT lazily done so. 

One of the best parts of this story was the way the scenes were created and arranged. Emma James left no trick out of the book. She knew how to capture the readers attention and she never let go. It was so cruel to be at the edge of my seat, and to think I knew what would come next? Huh. 

The only part that I could perhaps say made me give it an almost 5? I expected Edge to have been introduced into Whispers life a lot sooner.

I am only saying that as a negative because when ever we were lucky enough to get his point of view, I couldn't get enough. That is exactly why I wanted MORE of Edge. Is that too greedy to ask for? ;)

HOWEVER, saying that, the pacing of the story and the characters specific perspectives were amazingly well crafted.

Knowing you are about to delve into a dark story is hard enough on it's own, but not expecting it to be accomplished so believably is another thing. 

It's a rarity to stumble upon (at least in my case) a novel that has the abuse element done so well that you would cry along with the characters. Or that you would want to throw your phone after realising the cliffhanger left you with not only a broken heart, wide eyes and tears streaming down your cheeks; BUT with a jaw that hit the ground.. 

Yup. I looked like an idiot. 

BUT it was worth every last tear, every last gasp, every last scowl AND certainly every last barely exhaled breath from not knowing what the fuck will happen next.

I LOVED this story and I cannot recommend it STRONGLY enough!!

Get your fucking ass out of your sit and get your hands on Edge and Whisper if you are willing to have your heart broken but with a smile of knowing you "felt" something when you delve into this one!

Thank you Emma James for this beautiful dark, addictive and heartbreaking creation. 


Where is the next book?? 

I need it like I need my next breath.


Damn it! I knew I shouldn't have trusted my mind when I thought Whisper was finally hugged with freedom. 

Now I'll just brew in my own frustration and only ever wonder how the story will continue..

Again. WORTH. IT!!
