SYNOPSIS:

Jack “Bulldog” Parrish
Crazy: Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way. I was thirteen when I discovered the definition of the word I’d forever be labeled. Some used it as a figure of speech but for me it was a scar I’d carry through life. Or so I believed until I was diagnosed a manic depressive. I’m the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycle Club, a man of power and control. A man with enemies near and far. But the truth, my truth, is my biggest enemy— my mind and I live most of my life with no control whatsoever. I’m just a man who battles his demons, a man destined to live a life full of darkness. Until her. She’s the light beckoning me, calling me home, away from the torment. In a world as dark as the one I live in, sometimes I can’t help but crave Sunshine.

Reina DeCarlo
I was lost, broken and a prisoner of my scars. A shell of the woman I used to be, who didn’t know the difference between living and merely existing. Until a stranger found me, fixed and freed me. He breathed life into my soul, reminding me I was a survivor and still had life to live. My savior is a biker.A man tortured by his own scars. A man broken like me, maybe even a little lost too. I want to be his remedy. I want to heal him. I want to return the favor and be his savior. This is our story, a story neither of us knew how to write until we found each other.

UT Teaser 6

Excerpt


“For every piece of clothing you give me, I’ll give you a piece of my past,” I bargained, crossing my arms against my chest as I stared at her lazily through the glass.
“Your past?” She whispered hoarsely. “Maybe it’s not your past I want.”
“Don’t know how to give you more than that,” I admitted, pushing off the door and moving to stand behind her. I wrapped my arms around her waist, bringing her body against mine and looked at us in the mirror. “Give you what I got, Sunshine, and I’ll keep giving it as long as it comes to me,” I vowed, nuzzling her hair. “You see what I see?” I whispered against her ear.
“Turn the lights off, Jack, please,” she whispered, looking away from the mirror. I ran one hand up the front of her body, cupped her chin and forced her eyes towards the mirror.
“No,” I shook my head. “Not tonight,” I said taking her hands and lifting them over her head. I had claimed her to my brothers, but I meant it when I said I wanted all of her. I wanted her to trust me enough to give me the things she kept to herself, the things that haunted her and shielded her from the rest of the world. In my thirty-eight years I never wanted to be that guy, the one that heals another person, someone who cares enough to fix what is broken beyond repair.
She ruined me.
Or maybe she fixed me.
But it was my turn to do the fixing.

Genres: AdultContemporaryRomance

PURCHASE: Amazon

SYNOPSIS:


Anthony Bianci
Since I was a kid all I ever wanted to be was a gangster. I wanted to be feared, to be respected, and for everyone to know my name. And then she came into my life. I never planned on falling in love with the mob boss’ daughter. She was forbidden but somehow she became mine. She made me crave things I didn’t even know existed and made me forget about the things I thought I wanted. My quest for power faded away and was replaced by my undying love for her. Until reality bit me in the ass and I was sent to prison for three years, doing time for a crime I didn’t commit. Now I’m out and she is creating a life for herself, just like I always wanted for her. Only I’m not a part of that life. I won’t ruin her any more than I already have with my poisonous lifestyle. No matter how tempted I am.

Adrianna Pastore
I wanted him from the very first time I laid eyes on him. He was everything to me, my first love and probably my last. Then my father ruined our perfect little life, and he walked away from me. I tried to fight for him, for our love, but he pushed me away. When the love you crave is beautiful, yet forbidden, you can’t help being tempted. So I’ll fight for him. For us. Even if I’m the only one fighting.

SYNOPSIS:


Michael Valente...
My father was the Underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me.

The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul. She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.
Nikki Pastore....
My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s nightclubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki.

I’m fighting a losing battle. There is only one person who sees me for me, my Mikey. He’s wild. He’s reckless. He’s hot as hell. He’s completely unattainable, but oh so tempting.

Title: Uncontrollable Temptations
Author: Janine Infante Bosco
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa
I knew.

I knew Jack’s story wasn’t going to be for the faint of heart. I knew it was going to be gritty and I also knew I had to read it. I needed to know what made this intriguing man tick since he stood out so heavily in the last book even though it wasn’t about him.

And Janine delivered. Again.

I just wasn’t prepared for the sheer amount of feelings I would have when everything was said and done. I was in no way prepared for the lumps in my throat at moments that I had, the tears that just fell of their own accord or the sadness turned into happiness by books end with the journey these two damaged people went through in order to come out the other side.

Get what they deserved.

I also didn’t expect to become as attached to the other players in this story the way that I did. One standing out above all others especially with the way this story ended and now with this story done, I’m eager to learn even more about. Leather and Lace anyone? I need answers. I need more. Like yesterday lol.

You learn a little bit of Jack’s history in the previous books in the series, and those little tidbits you learn then, they come up again in this story, but you’re also privy to a whole lot more. You’re given insight into what makes this rough around the edges man who he is. Why he is who he is and just how at fault he feels for the way everything in his life up until this point has turned out. But what you also learn is just how much this man cloaked in darkness is so very deserving of the light. Even with the path he’s chosen not exactly being one that the average person would choose.

If there was ever a character that I wanted to see have a happy ending it was Jack.

Add in Reina and everything she’s lived through that brings her to the diner where Jack first meets her. Her scars, both external and internal. Who she really is to him and then who she comes and well there are no two characters more deserving of happiness than these two. Even if they have to go through hell and back in order to get to it.

And go through hell they both do. More than once.

As with her previous works, the steam level here worked very well for me. Where in some novels, you can view the sex as just that, here, it was all part and parcel of the love that was indeed building between them. The trust between them once they both began letting their walls come down and the light that awaited them at the end of the tunnel. Adding an even more raw emotional aspect to the gritty rawness that was already there.

This is definitely not an easy book to read, but in my experience, the ones that don’t come easy are the best kind because even at their most fictional, they’re the most real.

This book, aside from the more fictional aspects, dealt in a very raw and gritty way with very realistic issues. Mental illness and the toll it can take on those around you as well as the person suffering is brought to life here. An issue that given the seriousness of it, I think the author depicted in a way that while hard to take at times, was very organic. The author being sure to show it through the characters eyes rather than tell and connecting me even more than I already was to Jack.

I felt that biker deep in my bones right from the start and even now, days after finishing, he’s still there. His story definitely going to be one of the ones that stays with me long after the last page is turned.

If you’re a fan of the stories that don’t come easy, I think you’ll enjoy this. I know I did.

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read this before official release. Jack and Reina’s journey is one that I’m glad I got to be a part of.
