overwhelmed At the same time, I found myself liking a lot of the side characters, so I will probably try to stick with this series Overall, there were things I liked, and things I could have done without so, yeah, I have mixed feelings I m also going on little sleep and a diet of allergy pills and coffee, so my opinion probably isn t the most trust worthy at the moment [[ Free E-pub ]] ☊

boomeranged ALL over FACEBOOK It was a wants badly book, happy dance seeing it on my kindle NOTE FROM AUTHOR This is a biker romance and as such it contains no princes, unicorns or rainbows I think everyone knows that the BIKER GENRE is my all time favourite, add in dark and gritty and I m definitely in my happy placeA woman on the run I pray I ve given myself enough time to get out of the city A near rape has Ember feeling unsafe in the safe house she s sought shelter in.Thirty eight days on the street, and I ve been reasonably safe But I don t feel safe here, not any I ve read craploads of biker books and I do mean craploads, this story is really unique with likeable characters..Just when you think Ember has been given a break in her crappy life after escaping an abusive relationship she s jumped from one fire into the frying pan, a near rape, then when corrupted cop Davis recognises her he makes a deal with her, either do what he says or he ll turn her in, now she s in the thick of things with a notorious biker gang and the hot as sin leader Maverick withhang ups than a female on crack.GodHave I fled from one monster, only to land in the lair of the devil If I don t give Davis what he wants, I ll be hurting myself and my chances at freedom If I snitch on the club, I ll be putting myself in danger and screwing over Lil Bird, Goose, Dozer, and the club I m not a stranger to motorcycle clubs They re like the poster boys for the seven deadly sins I didn t run from one jailer just to find another Like Lucifer, his presence is rife with malevolence The very image of him screams DANGER He s utterly tempting, a delicious looking bad boy in leather and a vision of sin in the best of ways A stealer of HEARTS and SOULS Lucifer s greedy and impatient He tried to play God to get what he wanted He was always too dark to live among saints, but not satisfied living among sinners He still thinks he deserves his little slice of heaven though he s an evil son of a bitch who hurts innocent peopleSuch an easy book to get into, I know all lovers of the biker genre will love this You get a strong connection with Maverick and Ember, even though Maverick comes across like a hardened cave man alpha dropkick with his rough talking shit he s alot deeper than he appears at first What I ve enjoyed the most about this is its slow moving storyline which gives you a deeper connection with the characters, there s no Insta love here either..it s basically Insta hate..I loved Embers sharp red headed witted tongue and the men that loved and protected her, a real refreshing biker read..Most biker books jump straight into the dark and grit and this is what makes this stand out This kept my eyes and my attention throughout, once I started this I got so absorbed in the story I pretty much ignored life until this baby was finished..I can not wait to see what the next book has install for us. 4.5 Mav Stars.Firstly, let me start off with, the bad assness of the

design and construction company, and hard edged biker by night Sargent at arms to the HOC s Holding down the forth until his club brother is released from jail Meeting Maverick was a shock to Ember s system He was dark and broody, yet, sinfully sexy Ember couldn t help but notice his physique and the dark aura emanating from him This place isn t the place for you Doll I won t be the fool who tries to fix you I ve already had my fair share of suicidal junkies Maybe if I still had a heart, but mine was ripped out a long time ago We re ruined, you and I, and there s no fixing what s utterly broken These two were such wonderfully broken and tragic characters to read about The sexual tension and the air around them was combustible The way they danced around each other Sly looks, heated glances, jealousy and intense arousal I especially enjoyed the frisking of Ember Mav did a super job of getting my undies all twisted The road these two travel isn t filled with daisies and sunshine It s raw, gritty, brutal and undulating fear, guilt and pain Every minute of the story we ve captivated and enthralled The plot thickens, and secrets from Ember s past are revealed, that affects the club, and their enemies come knocking Maverick comes to terms with his brutal past, but a part of him will forever be lost to those excruciating circumstances Darby Briar captured me instantly and I am an avid

diverse reader I like to read an uncomplicated and easy reads and I can handle some darker themes, but what I am not handling is ROMANTICIZING ABUSE This Hero represents everything that you should run away from in a relationship He degrades women and he does not even see them as a human being He talks about the heroineIt s obvious that bitch has been livin on the street Like she s been diving in dumpsters Is that wha DNF at 39%WARNING SWEARING WORDS I consider myself a diverse reader I like to read an uncomplicated and easy reads and I can handle some darker themes, but what I am not handling

obvious that bitch has been livin on the street Like she s been diving in dumpsters Is that what we want Trash in our clubhouse She s a wet hole nothing Then he has sex with that wet hole in the open for everyone to see to humiliate the woman as well as heroine who stood there watching You have to be seriously careful when you include that degradation intended to show how low women are perceived in a romance book Regardless if It s a gang or motorcycle club, It has to be handled sensitively, otherwise it becomes a fail attempt to turn characters into characters we care about.I don t see this romance realistic, in real world, when a man nearly slits your throat it usually ends in tragedyand even that did not stop heroine lasting after her tormentor Yeah, so its ok to hurt you as long as you are hot So I see this romance is not a contemporary one, It is a fairy tale, a fantasy in which abuse and degradation is not only accepted but condoned and encouraged by everyone romanticizing it Ok so I am going to start off with Yes after meeting the heroine the hero does have sex with someone else and its not fade to black.Ok with that said the story started out interesting Ember the heroine of the book is escaping an abusive relationship, she tried to fake her death but that didn t work out So shes in hiding Ember finds a friend Lily, one of the motorcycle guys old lady who takes her to a Motorcycle club to see if maybe this life might work for her or at least give her a pla Ok so I am going to start off with Yes after meeting the heroine the hero does have sex with someone

stay for a bit so Ember can get her life straightened out Things don t go as planned, Mav the hero of the story and sorta president had a bad relationship some 5 years ago which he cant let go of and so happens Ember looks similar to her red hair i guess Dozer Vice President of the group sides with Ember so she can stay at the club on a trial basis Mav is pissed, he wants her gone, he is a jack ass to her, mean, almost kills her, but he has the hots for her at the same time So what does he do Oh you know has sex with one of the club whores because he is trying to get her out of his mind pfft Ember has the hots for him He treats her like shit, she just takes it, even see s him having sex with another And an incident that happens one of the guys pets is lost which happens to be a spider, which mav is scared of which so happens to be in his bed so he asks Ember to come and get it has her in Mavs room while he has another whore tied to his bed and naked I wanted to slap Ember Why cant the woman in these kinds of stories have some self respect Ok so after they both realize they both want each other, the author tries to rectify the hero Ugh I suppose towards the end he was ok Also there is a rape scene The heroine get abused and raped Not by the hero and its not fade to black I swear I don t know why I read some of the motorcycle books, I always end up with the ones that the hero is f ing other people, One of the dudes in this story is actually married with kids and he is cheating on her with all kinds of girls at the club But the author makes him out to be funny, charming, and cute F ing sleaze ass Some of the characters did peak my interest, Taz and Ivy I would of added Dozer but up until he f ed a girl on the pool table in front of everyone cause he also had the hots for Ember and wanted to make her jealous show he had a satisfying dick But I have a feeling that it will be f ck fest 2000, cheat a thon, etc etc This is just my opinion This book does have a lot of good reviews Spoiler s ahead Proceed with caution Burning Emberstarted out okay, with a great prologue, great plot, but it all went down to hill for me when Mav tried to slit Ember s throat And then it got worst when Ember easily forgave him Only because he s hot How about no It s so OOC for me Ember s lived a hard life She was sexually and physically abused most of her life It didn t make sense to me that she would easily forgive Mav for almost killing her The author tried so hard ro redeemSpoiler s ahead Proceed with caution Burning Emberstarted out okay, with a great prologue, great

see his point and view and all but no Some things don t have an undo button His distrust and hatred might be his character flaws but the second he screwed up by hurting Ember, he s tainted in my eyes And don t get me started on his cheesy dirty talk God It makes me shudder It just made me so uncomfortable I ve come across characters with hotter, sexier dirty talk than his His are just plain gross.Also I get that this book is meant to be a setup for future books in this series, hence why we get back story on Dozer and Bethany and some other characters but it GETS TEDIOUS I need some mystery man I don t need to know every single details You just ruined it for me 5 STARSI ve read a ton of MC romance, but this one ROCKED my world This was unique, raw, gritty, sexy and kept me on the edge of my seat Characters were amazing, and I can totally see this developing into a kick ass MC series I was flippin pages like there s no tomorrow Literally could not put it down Note to self The
