I LOVE the Carolina Bad Boys so I was more than excited to review this set and check out all of the new bonus material and I can’t wait for Boomer’s story!



Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels . . .
Macho mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room for two loves: the kid and cars.
While pretending to be his best buddy’s gay lover during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. She blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Penthouse Forum. To Josh she’s a killer combination. But when the truth comes out all hell breaks loose.
Too bad romance is just for books.

My Review
This book was so funny at times! Poor Josh has to pretend to be Nicky’s boyfriend so that Nicky can escape the crazy fans at a romance writer’s event. Which would be fine if from the first moment they get there Josh didn’t see Leelee, another writer. Things get complicated as Leelee thinks Josh is not only gay but in a committed relationship. Josh is just trying to help his friend and then get home to his young son. When the truth comes out things get crazy! The fellow women writers that chase Nicky are more than thrilled and let me tell you this women are funny! Not to mention the guys back at the garage who keep sending Josh text messages that had me rolling with laughter!

In the fast lane . . .
 New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. This super
hot alpha male’s been too busy running from his past and a pack of rabid female fans. Everything comes to a head when he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. 
 Cool-as-ice Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own.  Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?
My Review
Nicky is a romance writer (that’s right this bad boy writes romance!) and Catarina happens to be the parts salesperson for Josh’s garage who also happens to be Brodie’s sister. Both of these two have things in their past that have left scars. Nicky is super attracted to Catarina the moment he sees her and she is to him as well but she tries really hard to not be.Cat’s secrets are big ones that really cause issues but she survived her past and is trying as hard as she can to be a better person. To be the woman that her parents would be proud of. These two go through a lot but their story is one that left me crying at times.


What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week . . .
Brodie Steele is a badass biker dude. Ashe Kingston is a hot cop with one helluva a’tude. Their bad blood runs deep but their attraction runs too hot too handle. They make a pact. Sex. No strings attached. One week only. What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week. Yeah, right.
Ashe annoys the ever lovin’ hell out of Brodie and turns him on so much he can’t see straight. He keeps coming back for more. Ashe wants no part of Brodie outside of their no-strings-attached fling. But he’s hard to resist with his inked sleeves and rebellious ways, not to mention piercings in places that make Ashe melt. Brodie Steele is dangerous, delicious, and suddenly determined to have her.
Can their hot bond win out over the bad blood of years past? Or will Ashe be taken from Brodie before she lets him into her heart?
My Review
This was my favorite of the books so far! I really love Brodie and Ashe together. They hate each other in the beginning but then we all know that the flip side of hate is love. Bike Week really brings their relationship to a head and they realize that once they get home they find that their agreement doesn’t work for them. They still want each other and nothing will stand in their way. Not the surprise that Ashe has a child nor the fact that not every in the club treats Ashe well. When the chips are down though these Brodie shows just how much he loves Ashe. This pair looks as though they don’t fit together ont he outside. He’s the bad boy, she’s a cop but underneath all of that you see that she has a wild side (love when she pulled him over!) and he’s a big softie (he sets an alarm on his phone so he doesn’t forget to pick up her child even when they are fighting!)


With a Heart
Forged in Steele

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

 Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man.  Not even Boomer Steele.

The bigger
they are, the harder they fall.
