    Re read 4 11 18When in slump, read Fearless, that s my motto Original Review All the Stars.What an excellent read.I am very late to the Dartmoor party and there are so many other detailed and amazing reviews on this And I am not pretentious enough to think that I have any original commentary or thoughts to add, so I will keep this short.Well, I ll do my best at least Ya ll know how I have a tendency to tangent Yes, I m aware tangent is not a verb Get on board with my slang, Son So anythisisalreadygoingdownhill, long story short, I LOVE books like this Books where the connection between the H and the h stand the test of time and sometimes distance Where the story has nuanced details that draw you in and make you feel like you are a thread that s part of a larger, multilayered tapestry Where you feel like Morgan Freeman is fucking narrating it from the bowels of some Hollywood sound booth This was like an MC Club War and Peace in terms of length and span In other words It was long as hell Now, could this thing have been a LOT shorter Sure Can I think if some scenes, moments, or descriptions of antique lamps that could have been taken out to make this behemoth streamlined Absolutely Would I want that to happen FUCK no I would worry that editing out any perceived chaff from this book might result in the negation of some nuance or detail that added to the depth of the characters The depth of the story That said, I am really looking forward to reading book two I plan on taking my time though in theory at least I m hoping I will be able to keep myself from bingeing on the remaining books and savor the series If only so I don t end up like this I want to maybe leave my house at some point in the next couple days There is booze and ice cream to be purchased after allthen again, there is always GrubHub.I wonder if they deliver Pinot Grigio

    Wow I can t believe that it took me so long to read this book, but I m so glad that I finally did This book was terrific I love MC romances, and Fearless was one of the best that I ve read The characters were well developed and the story drew me in right from the start Spanning over a decade, this story had an epic feel The story centers on Ava Teague, who grew up in the Lean Dogs MC As a young girl, she is exposed to danger and violence The biker subculture is what she lives and breathes, not knowing any different until she becomes the target of ridicule for pretentious classmates.By her side through it all is Felix Mercy Lecuyer, the biker assigned to protect her Years her senior, he is a father figure to Ava for much of her youth However, as Ava grows up those feelings turn into something .When Ava and Mercy begin a secret romance, it feels equal parts right and wrong Ava has always viewed Mercy as something As she grew into womanhood, her girlish crush became undeniable Despite having helped raise her, Mercy cannot deny his attraction to Ava or the changing dynamics of their relationship This leaves him conflicted and ashamed, even as he s falling in love with her.An attack on Ava brings their secret to light Things get ugly and Mercy is sent to another chapter of the club Ava is left brokenhearted.Eventually, Ava goes off to college and tries to mend her broken heart She remakes herself, becoming a responsible, conservative person completely unlike the girl she was before She even begins dating a young man that is the epitome of a wealthy country club elite.When Ava returns to her hometown after completing her undergraduate coursework, she is immediately thrust back into the past With her preppy boyfriend in tow, she is confronted with the man that broke her heart As she tries to merge her two worlds, Mercy is ever present.Some things refuse to be left in the past Old enemies resurface and Ava is again in the middle of a biker war Her feelings for Mercy cannot be denied, even as she tries to move on with her life.From beginning to end, I was absorbed in the world of the Lean Dogs MC The author took her time developing the characters and the storyline, feeding Ava and Mercy s story to readers bit by bit At times, I didn t think I d ever finish this book It was incredibly long, but I savored every morsel.This book had a little of everything It was a slow burn romance, with a captivating back story There was action and suspense, as well as mystery Betrayals and deceptions were plentiful and kept me guessing When everything came together, I was blown away I didn t guess any of the big twists until right when the author wanted them to be revealed Then, I was left with a feeling of contentment Although the book did drag a little at some points, due to the length, I can t say that there is anything that I would have cut out It all contributed to the development of the storyline and characters It wasn t always non stop action, but it was always purposeful.If you re a fan of MC romances and like a robust story that isn t rushed, this is a terrific choice Fearless is one of the best biker romances that I ve ever read The love story between Ava and Mercy was only made beautiful by their controversial past Their HEA was hard earned and well deserved This story is not to be missed Check out of my reviews at www.bookaddicthaven.com

    4.5 StarsI want to live in this EPIC book.If I did live in this book, Mags would be my BFF and Ghost my husband Mags is my peoples She would just accept the fact that I stole her husband and we wouldn t fight over him Because she s badass like that.I m not sure yet what my relationship with Ava would be like I m afraid I wouldn t be too crazy about her At least not in the beginning It would take some time to warm up to her because she would be too week, too needy, too immature and too spoiled in my eyes But I don t doubt we would become friends in the end when she finally showed some backbone and strength Me and Mercy There would be a lot of hugging And kissing Our friendship would flower beautifully.Now back to my not so exciting real life In the last few years I read a lot of MC books Some of them were okay, some of them were terrible, a lot of them were meh Very few of them were great But I haven t been able to find an epic one Not since Madeline Sheehan s Undeniable series.And now, after so many years it finally happened And I m so happy right now I might burst into tears.This book is amazing It has pretty much consumed my life for the last few days To be honest, I didn t have high expectations You see, I don t like long books And I m not too crazy about books in series, especially those involving the same characters I get bored too easily and I m always too restless, too eager to meet new fictional people Once the characters get their HEA, I m happy to tell them goodbye and move on.But sometimes you just stumble upon an exceptional book with the characters so amazing and real that you can t help but fall in love with them You become part of their world and they become your best friends, your family.A lot of readers would say this book is creepy.I know that by all laws of logic, ethics, biology, maths and other subjects I learned at school, the fact that a grown up man falls in love with his friend s daughter whom he has been looking after since she was eight should be wrong and disgusting But it wasn t.A lot of readers would say this book is too long, too detailed and too slow I would say it is perfect.A lot of readers would say it is too brutal I would say it is perfect This is MC romance at its best Don t miss on it if you read this genre.Review of the whole series MY REVIEW

    I finished FEARLESS yesterday and, to be quite honest, I am lost for words How does one review perfection I was lost in this glorious book for almost SEVEN days 1 because it s 860 pages long as per and 2 because I was trying to savor the story as much as I wanted to get to the end Does this make any sense Probably not but I think if when you decide to give this a go, you ll know exactly what I mean.This book is perfection From start to finish P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N As soon as it landed on my Kindle after a friend suggested it and I read the first three pages, I was a goner I don t read AS much as some of my friends but I recognize superb writing skills when I see them I have NEVER read anything like this before TeriLyn and I were highlighting stuff and exchanging texts like mad women, completely in AWE of Lauren s ability to describe something as simple as main characters ending conversation withThe book is so beautifully written it made me weep.I am not going to recap the story because one simply hast to experience it to fully appreciate it but the elements of MC, family of blood relations and the kind you make for yourself , suspense, forbidden factor, heartbreak and everything else that makes an awesome read are all there to make FEARLESS one of THE best books I ve read to date, if not EVER Lauren Gilley is a Shakespeare of MC Romance genre Truly.English isn t my first language so I am not able to express ALL my love for this story to the best of my ability so please take a few minutes to read my reading sidekick s review of this amazing story here TeriLyn s Review of FEARLESS Her review is spoiler free and does this fantastic saga the justice it deserves Cheers for now

    Re read 8th March to 10th March 2018If possible I loved this even the second time round.Original review.This is the first book I ve read by this author, in fact it s the first time I ve even heard of this author.It s nearly 900 pages long so yes I paused a minute before starting but once I d started I was completely captivated by this Now there s already so many incredible reviews so I ll keep mine brief.The advantage with this being so long means it can take its time to slowly introduce the characters, to develop them and therefore after a while we feel as if we really know them, there s no rush and while I had an adjustment period at first since I m used to much shorter books and it seemed to be moving too slowly but once I d settled in I really appreciated the time taken.This is an MC book unlike any other, it has great characters, the men obviously like most MC books are good but here we also get strong women and this for me is the part where a lot of female authors fail.Maggie is the MC queen and a brilliant character, her daughter Ava is a case of like mother like daughter but it was Mercy, Felix L cuyer who stole the book and my heart, he s just the most amazing man and the I read the I loved him, I d go as far as to say he s my favourite ever, sorry Dante, Darcy and the rest but Mercy is the real deal.If I m being totally honest I have to say I struggled a little at first with the POV changes, they re constant and there s no warning at all, it s certainly not a book you can skim, not that you d want to.I can t remember the last time I read a book which was long enough and good enough for it to completely consume me.

    Honestly, if this book was about 200 pages shorter, it would have been a solid 5 star It just dragged towards the end I nearly skimmed But I didn t Whatever our souls are made of,his and mine are the same The subject matter in a way should have had me running for the hills They meet when she is eight and he is 21 I think Nothing happens Don t worry I don t mind an age gap I married a younger man myself six months younger LOL But Bruce is 16 years older than me so when he dumps Patti, I will have no problem being with him Beautiful prose, wonderful characters and story I just felt my eyes glazing over a bit for the last 20% They passed a clump of rangy pine trees, their bases tangled with honeysuckle I thought Ava was very mature Probably because of the environment she grew up in and her Mom Maggie I want to be Maggie I loved her I would love her story Ghost Ghost was dressed, his salt and pepper hair damp from the shower, his cut in his hands At fifty, his pecs and biceps still filled out his black muscle shirt in a way that left Maggie s pulse skipping YES PLEASE She was the reason he left Knoxville, and the reason he almost hadn t come back Don t even think that is how is described in the book, but who fucking cares Ava loved the way her parents didn t baby her they cursed and looked her straight in the eye and treated her like an adult Dear Lord, the language my kids hear coming out of my mouth She heard the music fire up as she let the door to the shop swing shut behind her Metallica, Master of Puppets Heavy metal to cover the screams I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.

    Freaking loved it I actually haven t enjoyed reading a biker book this much since Move the Sun by S Fanetti 2 years ago.Lazy me is copying and past a comm Anna wrote Glad it was a winner If it s as great as Move the Sun then I m starting it asap Anna, if I have to choose between them, I would go with Fearless.I think it has a massive potential to become a movie or a TV series without being a copy of SOA.The author is so talented She has a gifted way of telling a story, rich in details, without being boring I never thought I could find a Swamp with crocodiles beautiful, but I did and I know it was all because of her xx

    Five brass knuckles for Lauren Gilley s incredible MC read This was my first from this amazing author Her tone is dark, intense, telling a story within a story, and branching out to each of the characters The adrenaline rush had me glued as the sense of danger lurked within each page Mercy L cuyer had been been Ava Teague personal protector, bodyguard and friend from the time she was eight Some lines should never be crossed, and to do so is not only betraying the Lean Dogs Motorcycle Club but to the very man who had saved him Ghost nodded, his trust immediate and complete Go take care of it You look after my girl He didn t for a second suspect He didn t ever wonder That trust should have been flattering, but in the moment, it just pissed Mercy off You don t have a fucking clue, he thought, conjuring the first ever bitter resentment of his vice president. Moving back to Knoxville after being gone for five years, brings up a new set of growing pains The kind you don t forget no matter how much you d wished they d remained in the past Her deep purple and gray eye shadow a soft touch in the sunlight made her look like she d been punched in the face Her cheeks were thin, sunken, sallow, her skin waxy and obviously pored Her hair hung, two limp sheets, in front of her shoulders She wanted to blame the lighting, but she knew the truth this is what two point three seconds in front of Mercy did to her With the town s folks turning on the outlaws and a power hungry mayor, trying to force them out A new war is waged, the winner takes all in blood

    3.5 StarsOverall Opinion I know I went in expecting a lot out of this book Why Because everyone and their dog seemed to love it At first I was hesitant because of the size of it, because it is so long But then I just jumped right in Sadly, I set myself up for failureyet again I wouldn t say I hated it or anything I just didn t love it Mercy was an awesome H He was a great mixture of scary, sweet, and sexy Ava WellI had my moments with her I liked young Ava and the Ava at the end, but the Ava in the middle Not so much She was wishy washy and was view spoiler stringing along her boyfriend too much for no reason hide spoiler
