Raised by his uncle, the president of the Tartarus MC, Maddox is destined to follow in his footsteps.

From the very first moment I spotted Snow White, she’d burned herself into my brain. Every fucking night, the image of her naked body tortured me in maddening detail.
Sometimes I woke with the remnants of her taste in my mouth, half convinced I’d actually buried my tongue in her undoubtedly pretty pussy. Fuck, I hadn’t seen an inch of that legendary body yet, much less touched her. Oh, but I would, even if it took a poisoned apple.
A guy like me would never be allowed near Snow White. I wasn’t a fuckin’loser, far from it. I was going to become the president of the Tartarus MC, following in my uncle’s footsteps, the current prez. Of course, that made me the lowest scum on earth if you asked Snow White and her fuckin’father, Luca Vitiello, the Capo of the Italian mob on the East Coast. I was a little boy, barely five years old, when the life I knew was ripped from me. As the son of the president of the New Jersey chapter of the Tartarus motorcycle club, I had watched many disturbing things at my young age. Club brothers getting it on with whores in the middle of the clubhouse in broad daylight, brutal fights, shootings…but nothing had left quite a mark like the night the Capo of the Famiglia brutally killed my father and his men.
The murderous bastard had slaughtered an entire chapter of our club—alone.
Strike that.
Not alone—with a fuckin’ax and a skinning knife. The screams of my dying club family still haunted my nights, an echo of a memory I couldn’t shake unless I drank enough booze to kill an elephant. Those images were the fuel for my hunger for revenge.
And revenge I would finally get, with the help of the spoiled princess of New York: Marcella Vitiello.

I was tired. I was restless. I was irritated.
The trifecta of bitchiness.
So, when I saw him sitting at a table by himself, I stilled midstep, and my annoyance grew.
Why, God?
How dare he look so good when I could barely find matching shoes this morning.
He brought his espresso up to his lips as he read from the newspaper he held in his hands. I didn’t know why that got to me. Maybe because he looked so effortlessly relaxed, and my fragmented mind was being split in a flurry of puzzle pieces, none of which fit back into their original spaces.
My body rigid, my feet started moving, and they didn’t stop until I stood in front of him with a cold expression that could’ve set off the next big freeze. Before he even looked up at me, I hissed quietly, “This is my spot.”
Vik simply peered up at me with a furrowed brow. “No, it isn’t.”
Uh, excuse me? “Yes, it is. This is my spot. My cafĂ©. You go get your own.”
And his grin had my heart racing with anger. “Firstly, I brought you here, so if we’re getting technical, you wouldn’t even know about this place if it weren’t for me.”
My neck flushed.
Oh, right. I’d forgotten about that.
Feeling stupid, I huffed out a short breath, threw up my hands, and said, “Fine. I’ll leave.”
As I turned to walk away, Vik’s hand shot out and gently but firmly circled my wrist. I twisted back to find his gaze had darkened some, and he uttered, “Stay.”
It wasn’t a plea nor a demand. I might’ve been delusional, but to my ears, it sounded like a wish.
My rigid stance loosened mildly.
Only one word out of his mouth, but I felt the caress of it all over.
I peered down at that hand. It held me firmly as his obsidian gaze locked me in. “I heard you’ve been spending time at Laredo’s. I know you’re smarter than to try to get the attention of a particular Frenchman, so I won’t warn you against it.” Those eyes sliced over the length of me. “You know better, don’t you, baby?”
Every fiber of my being screamed to sit and stay, but the insecure part of me told me to leave before we hurt each other. Against my better judgement, I sat opposite him, and because I often had trouble keeping my mouth shut, I said smugly, “Sounds like you might be jealous.”
The hand on my wrist flexed, and Vik held me down with his glacial gaze. “Wanna test that theory?”
My chest squeezed.
My ego was a petty bitch and hooted loudly, all for it. My heart thought nothing would be more romantic. But my brain, on the other hand, knew what Vik plus jealousy was capable of. And it wasn’t pretty.
Don’t get me wrong. I was never the target of his anger when he got like that. The men standing in his warpath, however, usually ended up with a split lip, a broken nose, or a concussion, or all three. And after it was all done and dusted, Vik would then take me home, take my mouth, and then take me roughly against the nearest surface, all while maintaining eye contact.
Ugh. It was so fucking hot.
The memory had my knees snapping together under that table, trying in vain to ignore the thrumming warmth that suddenly lit in my core.
Hmmm. Maybe we should test that theory after all.
Not a good idea.
My inner self pouted and called me a prude.
Not so smug anymore, I cleared my throat and asked, “What do you want from me, Vik?”
Refusing to let go, his thumb gently caressed the sensitive spot at my inner wrist, and without hesitation, he responded one word that shattered my resolve.
The way he said it, with zero hesitation, had my heart aching. I wanted that too. If only the stakes were even. If only he had as much to lose as I did. My heart was on the line. I wasn’t sure if Vik even knew how to access his.

My Review
5 Stars
Vik by Belle Aurora is book two in the Shot Callers Series.  This is the story of Viktor Nikulin 'Vik' and Nastasia Leokov 'Nas'. I have read the previous book which I do feel helped me to enjoy this book.
Nas has been in love with Vik from the start but he has treated her as someone to guard and being her brother's friend.  But when Nas and Vik kiss something cracks in Vik.  This was a good read and a page turning one for me. I can't wait to read more from this author and series.

Until Jinx by Mary B. Moore


Title: Until Jinx
A Happily Ever Alpha World Novel
Author: Mary B. Moore
Publisher: Boom Factory Publishing, LLC
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 17, 2021



She was meant to be just another appointment, but when Sienna Blake came to get her scars covered up, the story that came with it changed everything.
I should have been more aware back then, more clued in to what was going on, but I’d been so focused on finding my path in life that I’d messed up, and she’d become a victim because of it.

I’m going to make it up to Sienna and help her get her life back, this time with me in it. And it’s not just because of who hurt her. It’s because there’s something about her that I can’t stop thinking about. She’s fragile but strong. Hurt but complete. And I can’t stay away from her.

Art’s my passion, and skin’s my canvas, but The Broken Eagles are what brings it all together. At least, it was until Sienna came back into my life.



I don’t go out, and I don’t speak to people—I just focus on my pottery and designs. So why I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a tattoo, I don’t know. Maybe I did it because it was him?

Covering up the past helps, but you can never erase it completely. This I know well. But that one appointment opens up my life in ways I didn’t expect, and now that we’ve met up again, Jinx is determined to give me a future I never imagined I’d have.

Unfortunately, we can’t always erase the demons chasing us, though, and it seems like she isn’t finished trying to ruin my life. But now she wants everything we’ve built together to come tumbling down.

This time, though, I’m not on my own, and I’m stronger than I was before because of him.

Until Jinx is part of Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Happily Ever Alpha World. If you loved Until July, then you’ll want to read Until Jinx.

I'm a British author who grew up all over the world. My parents were diplomats, so we were posted to all of the corners of the earth and it was a blast. Some wouldn't seem so awesome if you heard about them, but my parents always made it a fun experience and it molded my brother and I into who we are today.

I live in Wiltshire in the west country of the UK. At random times of the day, I'll hear a moo from the fields around me, or get a whiff of that...uhhh...'country air', and I love it! I might not have grown up in the UK, but I'm a British girl to the bone (regardless of the suspicious whiffs coming in from the fields).

I'm a single mother with a son who is nearing his teenage phase. Maybe he's reached it early? Who knows. But he's awesome and has a personality and sense of humor that I can only attribute to my family. We're slightly bonkers, we have a wicked sense of humor and we find the positives in every situation. I'm so proud to be his mum and to watch him grow and mature.

Writing was something that I'd always done. I had a teacher in the third grade who always set us the task of writing a story and making it into a book every weekend. After I left school, I kept this up and wrote as often as I could or just plotted out books. This evolved into me taking the plunge and publishing my first book in 2016 and I've been typing ever since.

I'm proud to be an Indie Author, and I absolutely love writing out my crazy Providence characters and the more complex ones in my other series'. It doesn't matter if it's romantic comedy or something with more suspense - so long as it has a HEA I'll do it!

I've got so many more planned, so the best is yet to come.

My Review
5 Stars
Until Jinx by Mary B. Moore is part of the Happily Ever Alpha World Series. This book can be a standalone book.  This is the story of Sienna and Jinx.  Sienna tries to live a quiet life working on her art but there was something awful that happened that has scared her.  When she finally gets the courage to go get a tattoo she feels something toward Jinx. Jinx is fascinated by Sienna from the start.  This was a sweet emotional read that I truly enjoyed.  I hope to read more from this author and this series.

Heartless Lover by Faith Summers is book 5 in the Dark Syndicate Series. This is the story of Eric Markov and Summer Reeves. I have read the previous book which did add to my enjoyment of this one. Summer is taken by Eric because he thinks she has information on the man he is looking for that tormented him. Eric is Bratva for the Voirik Brotherhood and a deadly man out for revenge. When he takes Summer he feels he can get information from but he soon starts to learn that she is in danger from this same person he is after. This was a page turning read just like the previous books. I love Ms. Summers writing and I do recommend this book / series.

Austin's Revenge by Jax McKay is book  two in the Ares Falls Billionaires Series.  This is the story of Violet and Austin.  I haven't read the previous book 'Awakening' which I do think would have added to my enjoyment of this one. Violet is working to raise her brother and make ends meet.  Along with that her ex-boyfriend is being a problem.  Violet and Austin ended up having a one night stand that both felt more than just that night.  But that was it until Violet ends up working at Austins company with his brother and their two friends.  Besides being an office romance this had the story line of the one night stand that both didn't deny. I will be looking for more books from this author.

The Dom Identity by Lexi Blake is book Two in the Masters and Mercenaries: Reloaded. This is the story of Vanessa Hale and Michael Malone. I have read the previous book which did add to my enjoyment of this one, but I do think it can be a standalone book if you wish.  Vanessa a former actress who has had a up hill battle in life has found more trouble when she starts to quietly invest age her sisters death.  Besides that she has been ridiculed for being married to an older man everyone seems to be against her.  Michael was born with a silver spoon but he doesn't work to live that life and has made himself a former military and working for McKay-Taggart. Michael has been assigned to investigate Vanessa so he goes undercover as her Dom but he ends up seeing Vanessa for who she really is and doesn't want to loose her.  But danger has come looking for Vanessa.  This was a very exciting hot read.  I do recommend this book and this author's writing. Loved it.
