My Review & Release Blitz: Penance by KE Osborn

Title: Penance

Series: The Chicago Defiance MC Series Book 2

Author: K E Osborn

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: July 26

I’m not sure how it happened.
The way the cord of life can splinter and snap without warning.

My family—in hiding from the Japanese Yakuza.
My club—at war with the very organization my family is hiding from.

Though, amidst the chaos, there is one shining light.
A Spanner in the works.
A woman who’s not only the complete opposite of me, and everything I stand for, but a woman who my parents should frown upon.
She’s brash, where I am guarded. We shouldn’t work.

This story isn’t about a dynasty reuniting and mending old wounds—it’s betrayal, deception, conflict and turmoil.

Bloodshed—it’s coming.

Who will pay the ultimate penance?

Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.

Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.

This book had me turning pages so fast, my heart pumping and at times it was because of the steamy connection between Sensei/Raiden and Sass/Ayla and other times it was because of the intense things going on, which I won’t mention too much because I don’t want to give too much away.
Sensei and Sass are complete opposites, and that confuses him in a way. Because their connection is very strong. He longs for her when she’s not around, and when she is they can’t keep their hands off each other. Sass has a very bold personality, she just says it like it is and doesn’t take slack from anyone. And like Sensei says, she talks like a teenage boy. You can see how she got the name Sass. But she grew up without a mother, and two younger brothers to torment her. She works in her father’s Auto Repair Garage with all men and has had to learn to stand her ground. I love Sass!!! She is a great character!!! But Sensei doesn’t know what to make of her, but he’s drawn to her.
But with the Yakuza around, and his family hiding out at the club, he has got to stay focused. But no matter how hard he tries, it all comes back to Sass!!
Once again, we see the beauty of the brotherhood in this book. I love how well K E Osborn portrays this. How tight that bond really is, and how they are willing to die for each other. Plus we get a hint at who the next book will be about!! I can’t wait!!
I LOVED this book!!!! Between the love story and steaminess, and the level of action/adventure!! The book totally ROCKS!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Review: RESISTANCE (Chicago Defiance MC) by K.E. Osborn

3949C0AB-7B30-4B64-B185-1F91083C7E2BI was so thrilled to read this new MC Romance, and even more thrilled to find out it was the beginning of a new series!! So I started reading with my fingers crossed that it would be a really good one!!

OMG!!! Where do I start? And how do I explain to you why this is an outstanding MC Romance?! And ESPECIALLY how do I do this without gushing out a bunch of oh I love it, I love it, I love it!! Which I do!!

Anyway, let me see…where to start. Well, how about this! There is both the Chicago Defiance MC and The Italian Mafia In this book!! Cool, huh? And let’s say, they are NOT friends. Also, I really like the way K C Osborn handled the MC brotherhood, the clubhouse, the club girls and the whole family atmosphere. She really introduces us to the different members, and we learn a little about each one. And I felt as though I really cared about the Chicago Defiance MC by the end of the book, I look forward to reading more about them.

Torque is the MC President. I love Torque. He is one very sexy, bad boy, biker! He has had a sad past. But he meets Heeley in her parent’s Froyo store, where she is working part time. Torque is attracted to Heeley right away, but it takes some work for him to win Heeley over. Not that she isn’t attracted. She is busy with going to college, working hard to become a doctor. Plus she works part time in her parent’s Froyo store. So she feels she has no time for a relationship. He’s very persistent and very sweet. Of course, we know he wears her down or this wouldn’t be a romance.

There’s lots of action between the Italian Mafia and the Chicago Defiance MC. It gets pretty intense. It’s a real battle.

So this book really has it all, for an MC Romance!! I am SO EXCITED for the next book in the Chicago Defiance MC Series!!!

ZENKA by Alison Brodie

9089CD6B-29B7-4DAC-BF63-CFA2C38A35D1

Revenge, murder and meeting the Family at Christmas

When London mob boss, Jack Murray, discovers he has a son, his joy is short-lived: Nicholas is not a chip off the old block; he’s a nurse whose patients call him an “angel”.

Jack is not happy. He needs someone with balls – not a halo – to inherit the Firm. Zenka takes charge. Using her feminine wiles and gangland contacts she will bring out the gorilla in Nicholas. Her tactics are unusual, and illegal, and things soon start to spiral out of control.

“Don’t vorry, Jack. Ven I am finished vith Nicholas he vill be dog’s bollocks just like his papa” –Zenka

MY THOUGHTS:

Alison Brodie is a new to me and I am really impressed!! I REALLY look forward to what she has coming next. Alison, I will be staying with you for the ride!!!

ZENKA is fun, exciting, hysterically funny and filled with some pretty intense scenes!! It’s a wild and fun ride!! I was giggling, laughing, and snorting out loud throughout the book!! A bit awkward if you’re out in public. I loved the characters and really got invested. There were times I had tears running down my face (not from laughing) because I was happy for the characters or my heart went out to them. It was just such a beautifully written story! Not to mention the accents!! I LOVED the accents!!! ZENKA’S was the most fun! She is Hungarian, and a fiesty one at that! It vas so much fun to read vhat she says in book!! Lol. Every once in a while between chapters she writes to her friend, Alina, in Hungary. Those letters usually reveal what ZENKA is thinking, and things we wouldn’t know otherwise. But she’s pretty funny in those letters. I love ZENKA…she just cracks me up!!
I JUST WANT TO SEE THIS BOOK AS A MOVIE, I WOULD LOVE IT!!!!

Oh, there’s also Cockney slang. But Alison, so obligingly, put a Cockney translation page. I bookmarked it on my kindle so that I could easily refer back to it. I didn’t have to very much though, you catch on real quick.

I would recommend this book to everyone, unless you hate to laugh…then don’t read it!! Haha….no, really…READ THIS BOOK!!! YOU’LL LOVE IT!!!!

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

IMG_1030

Book Summary:

Emmett Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.

Forever.

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden—a planet that Babel has kept hidden—where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.

But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.

My Review:

Nyxia was a really unique book. When I started reading it, I thought a little of hunger games with all the competition. But I soon realized this was its own story and a pretty intense one at times too. Emmett is the main character, and I grew to really like him. He is such a good kid. He came from a good family, and has good values. It is this that makes him outstanding amongst the other kids.

You see Emmett, like the others, was recruited by the Babel Corporation to enter the spaceship going to Eden. Once on the ship they were to compete. There were 10 of them, but only 8 would go to Eden. The competition was designed to prepare them for what they would, or could, go through on Eden. They had technology never seen before to learn to use. The competition got pretty intense. But the rewards of going to Eden meant everything to these kids!!

Some of the kids were ruthless. Some were skilled. Some were plain desperate. And some became like family to each other.

I LOVED reading this book!! It left on a cliffhanger, so I’m hoping it won’t be too long before the next book comes out!!

But, I really do recommend this!! If you like science fiction, with some action/adventure, a bit of a thriller….you’ll LOVE Nyxia!!!!
