Running on Empty (Havoc #3) by S.E. Jakes

After a brutal capture at the hands of the Heathens Motorcycle Club, Linc is just trying to heal, mentally and physically. But he’s got men in his life who are complicating everything. There’s Mercy—a Havoc MC biker and the man he is falling fast for—plus an undercover ATF agent and a rogue Havoc member.
But Mercy’s keeping him at arm’s length, and Linc is spinning. In an attempt to regain his equilibrium, he heads to the bar where he first met Mercy. Night after night, he escapes Havoc bonds and continues down his merry path of mayhem . . . mainly in the hopes that Mercy will give chase.
Since Linc’s capture by his old MC, Mercy’s been dealing with the fallout of his guilt. He’s trying to give Linc space and still watch over him—all without Linc’s knowledge. But with Linc’s old job calling and a threat to Havoc MC heating up, can they make their way back together?

I liked Running on Empty, but to honest, this one was my least favorite in the Havoc series so far. I think it’s a “me” thing though and I blame it totally on my feelings toward Mercy. I’m not the only one who was less than impressed with the way Mercy was acting though and I’m not talking about fellow readers. His brothers in Havoc and even others weren’t real happy with him either.

I understand his hesitance, but he almost gave Linc too much time. After everything that Linc endured in Running Blind, he needed Mercy, even though he was trying to push him away. He had other people to be there for him. He was broken and it took him a while to start feeling anything close to normal. When Mercy finally made his move, Linc knew in his heart that it was only out of guilt, it couldn’t be because he actually cared. Mercy wasn’t ready to let Linc know how he really felt, mostly because he didn’t think he deserved Linc’s love. *sigh*

Things get even messier when Linc has to face letting people he’s closest to know that there’s a huge part of his life he’s kept hidden. Mercy isn’t the only one with secrets that have the potential to harm those around him. Needless to say, there was a lot happening in Running on Empty. Some of the danger is taken care of by the end, but it’s obvious that things are far from over. I have no idea what’s next for Havoc, but I can’t wait to find out.

If I Ever (Hell or High Water #4) by S.E. Jakes

Some ghosts refuse to stay buried . . .
Prophet and Tom have been through the wringer more times than they can count, both as partners in the field and in life. Yet despite it all, they’ve built something great together. But now they need to protect it again: Prophet’s old nemesis, John Morse, is back and threatening everything he loves.
Prophet is driven enough to take John down alone, and with a chance to do exactly that on the table, he runs with it, risking himself in the process. But trusting Tom to help him is so much more than mission critical.
It’s the final stand, and with Tom and his team behind him, Prophet’s in for the fight of his life. Then a figure from his past goes missing, and the consequence of an old mission rears its head. As complications and destruction mount all around them, getting out alive becomes the most important mission of their lives.

My initial reaction when I finished If I Ever? True rating is hovering between 4.5-5 for REASONS! These guys really had to work for their HEA *Glares at #EvilAuthor*

I know a lot of people almost gave up on ever getting to the 4th book in the Hell or High Water series. I’m a patient reader though and life happens – to all of us, so I’m just happy that we finally got here. Yet, because so much time passed between Daylight Again and If I Ever, I felt the need to do a quick re-read. Which, actually turned out to be a good thing, since I inadvertently neglected to leave a review the first time around. Yikes! So, enough about the delay, how did I really feel about If I Ever?

If I Ever picked up exactly where Daylight Again left off… with Prophet reeling after he and Tommy came to the same realization – John was really back and no one that either one of them cared about was safe. From that point on, things got even crazier.

This book, just like the rest of the series is not for the faint of heart. Things happen… lots and lots of things. These guys pull no punches and would lay down their lives for any of their brothers. Which makes so much of what happens in If I Ever so hard to take. Alliances were made, trust was broken and at times it was hard to keep track. There was also more than one side story going on throughout all the chaos and I’m hoping that readers get a few more glimpses into them. Please and thank you!

Like I said, Prophet and Tommy had to work really hard to reach their HEA, but they did it. I’m pretty sure that we haven’t seen the last of them though. There were a couple of interesting twists and turns at the end. So, why the dramatic opening to this review? Yeah, there were reasons… I was mostly being funny, but come on! Every time I thought that this crew had been through enough and had finally earned some down time there was another life or death situation that they had to pull themselves – and others – out of. True, it most definitely kept the pages turning, but did they really have to be put through so much? In the end, all that matters is that Tommy and Prophet made it through in one piece, which isn’t a spoiler, honest. I mean Mal would have taken care of this author if not, right? That’s the only negative thing that I have to say about If I Ever. Other than making me scream in frustration, shed a tear or two, want to pull my hair out more than once and maybe shake some sense into more than one character, it was the perfect ending to a great series.


Daylight Again (Hell or High Water #3) by S.E. Jakes

Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest.
Prophet Drews is a man on the edge, and he’s pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in real life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet’s old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and most importantly, John—traitor, former teammate, and Prophet’s first love.
To help bury those ghosts for good, Prophet and Tom gather the members of Prophet’s former SEAL team . . . and a spook named Cillian who’s been tailing Prophet for years. In the process, Prophet is forced to face his team’s shifting loyalties, ghosts who refuse to stay dead, and scariest of all, his own limitations.
With everyone’s lives in danger, Prophet and Tom must unravel a tangled knot of secrets, including their own. Prophet must decide how much to reveal to Tom, while Tom must decide how far he’s willing to go to help Prophet lay his ghosts to rest.

This is my second read of Daylight Again and I honestly have no idea why I missed reviewing it the first time around. I’m fixing that now though, just in time for me to start reading the final book in S.E. Jakes’ Hell or High Water series, If I Ever. Regardless of why I committed to this re-read, I’m really glad I did. Mainly because there is SO much that I forgot. And trust me, a lot happens in this series, so missing even a little can cause some serious confusion. (That’s true, but honestly, I will use just about any excuse to re-read a book I love. 😉 )

Even though they’re growing closer and trust each other with their lives, Tommy knows that Prophet is hiding something. He’s patient though and he knows that Prophet will tell him when he’s ready. Prophet’s secret isn’t an easy one to to give to Tommy though. Not that he didn’t trust him, but because he knew that when he finally confided in Tommy, everything would change. By the end of Daylight Again, Tommy has a few secrets of his own. Prophet knows it too, he also knows he’ll get it out of him sooner or later.

That added tension, along with everything else, made Daylight Again really hard to put down. There were a lot of players involved and there were times that Tommy felt like he was on the outside looking in – especially when it came to Prophet’s old team. There wasn’t a lot of trust there and it went both ways, but Tommy would do anything to help Prophet put old ghosts to bed and keep him safe and sane… or as sane as either one of them could be.

It’s obvious at the end of Daylight Again that things are far from over. If I Ever has a lot of ground to cover, but I have a feeling S.E. Jakes will make the finale to Hell or High Water worth the wait. I should probably pick up Dirty Deeds (the first book in Mal and Cillian’s series) for a re-read before I start If I Ever, since it runs pretty much parallel to Daylight Again, but that would just be prolonging the inevitable. *sigh*

Running Blind (Havoc #2) by S.E. Jakes

It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle club member to simply walk away—and no one knows that better than undercover agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown—yet—but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low and heal.
But when his younger brother’s disappearance throws a wrench into his plan, Bram ends up in Shades Run, a town ruled by the notorious Havoc MC. In less than twenty-four hours, Bram finds himself at the mercy of Sweet, Havoc’s president, as he throws himself into the undercover role of a lifetime: himself. A man who’s never belonged anywhere, and who will do anything to protect his younger brother.
When finding Linc seems impossible, Bram is torn between Sweet, Linc, and revealing his true identities . . . and there appears to be no way out. Once again, he risks it all trying to save it all. Only this time he’s got no backup to save him if he falls.

It’s been a while since I read and reviewed Running Wild, the first book in the Havoc series. I probably should have re-read Running Wild before I started Running Blind (and I probably will), but it didn’t take me long to catch up.

Bram was in a tough spot… he was working undercover and there were few people he could trust. Given his recent history, he most definitely shouldn’t be trusting anyone in a MC, but he needed to find his brother. Since Linc’s closest last known connections were to Havoc, he didn’t have much choice. He didn’t count on Sweet… and Sweet most definitely didn’t count on Bram.

The connection between Bram and Sweet was too strong for either one of them to ignore, but it was also dangerous. Bram didn’t trust Sweet enough to tell him the truth and Sweet wanted to trust Bram, but knew that there was something that he was keeping to himself.

There were times in Running Blind when I couldn’t see a way for things to work out for any of the characters. There were some interesting twists and turns and there was also a lot more going on than just the relationship between Bram and Sweet. Needless to say, I can’t wait until the Havoc series continues.

Lights, Camera, Cupid (Bluewater Bay #6) Multi-author Anthology

LightsCameraCupid_400x600Cupid is visiting Bluewater Bay, and he’s leaving chaos in his wake.

Nothing’s been the same in this sleepy little logging town since Hollywood came to shoot the hit TV show Wolf’s Landing—especially Valentine’s Day.

In L.A. Witt’s Just Another Day, beloved actors Levi Pritchard and Carter Samuels have an announcement for their fans, while in Z.A. Maxfield’s I’ll Be There, actor Spencer Kepler and his boyfriend Nash Holly brave a blizzard and a fan convention to spend their first February the 14th together.

Of course, it’s not just TV stars celebrating the day. In Anne Tenino’s Helping Hand, an aspiring artist eager to escape Bluewater Bay decides he just might have a reason to stay: lust-inspiring logger Gabriel Savage. In S.E. Jakes’s No Easy Way, a local teacher reconnects with an old lover working security on the film set. And in Amy Lane’s Nascha, a Bluewater Bay elder recalls how his own unconventional family used to celebrate the holiday.

Real life may be nothing like TV, but when Cupid comes to town, there’s plenty of romance and drama to go around.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1What a fantastic Valentine’s Day treat ❤ All written by authors I know and adore. Some familiar characters and some new characters. Some laughs and even a few unexpected tears. If you’ve been following the Bluewater Bay series, you need to add this one to your TBR list.

Just Another Day by L.A. Witt

Levi and Carter were introduced in Starstruck, the first book in the Bluewater Bay series, so it was very fitting that they were included in Lights, Camera, Cupid. It was fun spending time with these two again. Being in a relationship hasn’t gotten rid of all of Levi’s little quirks, but he’s working on it. He proves in Just Another Day that Carter’s the most important part of his life and he’d do anything to show him how much he means to him.

Nascha by Amy Lane

Out of all the stories in Lights, Camera, Cupid, this one seemed the most out of place… but it really wasn’t. Nascha’s story wasn’t a happy one, but it turns out that it serves a purpose. I liked the story regardless, but I knew there was more to it than just a old man’s sorrow over what he lost. Turns out that Nascha gives readers some background for the next book in the Bluewater Bay series, The Deep of the Sound, also by Amy Lane.

No Easy Way by S.E. Jakes

This is the first time readers of the Bluewater Bay series are introduced to Cary and Dylan and I’m really hoping that we get to see more of them. Cary was the guy who had everything growing up… and then lost it all. That didn’t stop him from making something of himself. He even got over Dylan when he broke his heart by leaving him. Dylan never thought he was good enough for Cary and knew he would be better off if he wasn’t a part of his life. Nothing is ever as it seems, especially in a world that S.E. Jakes creates. (Oh, and she gets bonus points for mentioning two of my favorite characters from Burnt Toast B&B 🙂 )

Helping Hand by Anne Tenino

I liked Lucas from the time he hit the page in Helping Hand. He was bright, witty and talented and totally at odds with who he was and what he wanted. I really liked the story, but I’m not sure about the ending. I’m really hoping that there’s more to the story between Lucas and Gabe. *sigh*

I’ll Be There by Z.A. Maxfield

Oh Spencer and Nash… I love these guys. In I’ll Be There, readers are even treated to some quality time with Nash’s brother Healey and his geeky friends and boyfriend. Nash goes on a wild trip so he can be there to support Spencer. Meanwhile, Spencer comes to terms with a part of his past that he’s not exactly proud of. I loved spending time with these two again. Hell on Wheels was the third book in the series and another  one of my favorites.


No Boundaries (Phoenix, Inc. #1) by S.E. Jakes

NoBoundariesWhen your past closes in, running isn’t always an option.

The jobs Marcus Lowry works for at Phoenix, Inc. Investigations are quick and easy, and they don’t give him the nightmares his days as a CIA operative did. That is, until he gets involved in a case that grabs him by the throat and won’t let go.

Cole Jacobs left behind his old life on the streets to make a name for himself rebuilding high-end and vintage cars and bikes. But when a stalker threatens to kill him—and to hurt anyone who stands in his way—his past closes in on him, and he’s not sure where to turn.

The last thing Marcus wants to do is take on a charity case, and to say that he and Cole don’t see eye to eye at first is putting things mildly. But when the first attempt on Cole’s life nearly kills them both, Marcus realizes that Cole is in real danger, and Cole is forced to reveal everything. Almost everything. Because Cole’s deepest secrets could destroy them both.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Okay, so I’m behind. *hangs head in shame* It’s alright though because No Boundaries served two purposes. It was the perfect intro to S.E. Jakes’ Phoenix, Inc. series and it gave me the final shove I needed to start the Men of Honor series. Now that we’ve revealed my procrastination issues, we can get on with the review.

Cole pretty much didn’t trust anyone. He had good reasons, but he wasn’t sharing. Marcus trusted people who had proven themselves and since he knew that Cole was hiding something, he wasn’t going to cut him any slack. Sounds like the perfect couple, right? LOL!

There was a lot going on in No Boundaries… between a lot of people. I loved the dynamic between the characters. Not just Cole and Marcus. Law, Styx and Paulo added a whole new layer to this story. All three of these guys kept Marcus focused and gave Cole the support he needed – whether he realized it or not. I loved the relationships and the interactions. Law, Styx and Paulo balanced the tension between Cole and Marcus. They were more than just a sounding board, they were the perfect support system for both of them and each other.

There wasn’t much down time in No Boundaries. Yes, there was plenty of heat, but the danger that surrounded them was always there. There was suspense, action, lots of sexual tension and more than a few revelations that kept the pages turning. I can’t wait for the next book!

In the mean time, as I’ve mentioned, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Almost as soon as I finished reading No Boundaries I picked up Bound by Honor, the first book in S.E. Jakes Men of Honor series. I have to admit that my ulterior motive was to get me closer to Law, Styx and Paulo’s book, Bound by Law. Yeah, I’ve got some catching up to do, but I’m going to enjoy every minute of it 😉


Bound by Honor (Men of Honor #1) by S.E. Jakes

BoundbyHonorOne year ago on a mission gone wrong, Tanner James failed to save the life of Jesse, his Army Ranger teammate. Before dying in that South American jungle, Jesse extracted a promise that won’t let Tanner rest until it’s fulfilled—no matter what it costs him.

Damon Price loved Jesse, but problems in their relationship had come to a head right before Jesse left on his final mission. Now a reluctant Dom and a man still in mourning, he’s not happy when Tanner appears at his BDSM club. And even less happy with Jesse’s last request—that Tanner sub for him for one night.

After a rough start, Damon realizes that the tough soldier, despite his protests, aches for someone to take control. And Tanner senses a hesitance, an insecurity in Damon that makes him wonder if he’s simply a placeholder for Jesse, or if their tentative connection could grow into something more.

For Jesse’s sake, they agree to try one weekend together. Then duty calls, and a series of attacks that have been happening near the club hits too close to home, making both men wonder if giving their hearts is a maneuver fraught with too much risk…

Product WarningsContains rough language, rougher sex and warriors who fall hard for each other.

This book is the first step in me playing a major game of catch up. I jumped into this world created by S.E. Jakes with Catch a Ghost, the first book in her Hell or High Water series. Not a bad place to start, honestly. Tommy and Prophet are actually an excellent place to start. The thing is, there’s much more to this world than just Tommy and Prophet. (Don’t tell them I said that….) The more characters I met along the way, the more I wanted to get to know them all better. The Men of Honor series is where a lot of their stories began.

You pretty much get the set-up for this one in the description. What you don’t get is the intensity. This is more than a D/s relationship in the making. Both of these characters are beyond broken. Tanner came to Damon out of loyalty – a promise to a man he felt he had failed. He had no idea what he was in for. The alpha male in him screamed for control, but Damon knew better. On the flip side, Damon wasn’t prepared for the feelings that this ‘boy’ brought out in him. He didn’t want to have anything to do with him, but he couldn’t walk away. Once the layers that both of these men kept hidden – even from themselves – were revealed…. let’s just say the outcome was intense.

A lot happened in Bound by Honor beyond the romance. Secrets were revealed, emotions were raw, danger was lurking and trust didn’t come easy. This is not a series for the faint of heart, for a lot of reasons. These men fight hard, love harder and are fiercely loyal and none of those aspects are sugar coated. I love books that make me ‘feel’ and Bound by Honor definitely falls into that category.

There was a lot more to this story than just what happened between Damon and Tanner. The groundwork was laid for the series and it wasn’t just filler. Characters were introduced that not only played an integral role in Bound by Honor, but will be featured in the next book, Bound by Law. Characters that will also play an integral part in No Boundaries, but that’s not only another story, but another series. 😉 Yeah, I have some serious catching up to do and I have no doubt that I’m going to enjoy every minute of it. 😉


Not Fade Away (Hell of High Water #3.5) by S.E. Jakes

NotFadeAwayTruth or dare.

Ever since superspy Cillian moved into Prophet’s building, their game of Steal the Couch has been funny to Prophet, but a thorn in Tom’s side. Then Prophet gets bored one night during an ice storm and insists on playing another simple game with Tom: Truth or Dare. In exchange for one of Prophet’s truths, Tom steals the couch one last time.

But Prophet’s truths are never easy—Tom should know that by now—and this one raises questions neither of them quite know how to answer. In response, Tom finds himself laying claim to Prophet in the most basic way he knows how. And also finds that he doesn’t mind it in the least when Prophet returns the favor.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1This short and sweet read all started with a ‘not your typical’ game of Truth or Dare. And just so there is no confusion, this story is definitely ‘short’ but the ‘sweet’ may be a slight stretch. Regardless, for Prophet and Tommy the label fits. That is if you can wrap your head around theft, possible arson, bondage and other things that I can’t mention falling under the ‘sweet’ category…we’re good.

There aren’t any earth shattering revelations in Not Fade Away. No plot enhancement or secrets revealed, but it definitely adds another layer to the Tommy and Prophet dimension. If you have followed this series up to this point, this short little romp is a must. Especially if you’re like the rest of us and just can’t get enough of these two. Enjoy! 😉


Running Wild (Havoc #1) by S.E. Jakes

RunningWild_400x600Embrace the danger.

Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That’s why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars . . . and why he can’t stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can’t seem to stay away from Sean—he’s spent the last eight months breaking into Sean’s apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.

Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he’s ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.

Then one of Sean’s thefts goes bad, and Ryker’s protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean’s past threatens the safety of Havoc—and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker’s hiding secrets of his own. Soon it’s obvious that the adrenaline rush can’t keep them together anymore. But maybe love can.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Bad boys… you either love them or hate them. I have to admit that it took me a while to decide which way I was going to be swayed with either Ryker or Sean. To be honest I wasn’t feeling a strong connection to either one of them. I kept seeing how everyone was swooning over Ryker on Facebook and I just didn’t get it. I was actually getting kind of nervous. S.E. Jakes’ bad boys usually grab me from the beginning and don’t let go. Sean was okay, but I didn’t feel a strong  connection and Ryker was just a guy that seemed to be playing Sean for the first couple of chapters. What was it that all these swooning guys and girls were seeing in him?

I should have known better. Ryker snuck up on me the same way he got to Sean. Actually, the more I got to know both men the more attached I became. It took me awhile, but I finally got it. Ryker was more than swoon worthy. There was a lot more to him than just being a big, bad biker. Family meant everything to him and he would protect it at all costs. There was more to Sean too. He was broken in ways that went beyond the PTSD he suffered from. The way Ryker just knew how to reach him and his determination to help him heal but not change him is what really won me over.

Since this is a new series a lot of characters were introduced. Havoc is an interesting place that goes beyond just being a MC. There was also just a little bit of a mystical vibe to it that I totally didn’t expect but was intrigued by. I’m hoping that we see more of it as the series continues. Ryker and Sean got their HEA, but there’s more to come. I’m hoping we see more of them, but I’m looking forward to see which big, bad biker S.E. Jakes plans to win our hearts over next. 😉

Spotlight Tour: Daylight Again (Hell or High Water #3) by S.E. Jakes

DaylightAgain_TourBannerThanks so much for hosting a spotlight of my new release— Daylight Again!  It’s book 3 in the Hell or High Water series, and it’s the return of Prophet and Tommy.  And Mal.  And Cillian.  And, as usual, some surprises.  Hang on for another wild (and hot) ride!

DaylightAgain_500x750Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest.

Prophet Drews is a man on the edge, and he’s pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in real life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet’s old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and most importantly, John—traitor, former teammate, and Prophet’s first love.

To help bury those ghosts for good, Prophet and Tom gather the members of Prophet’s former SEAL team . . . and a spook named Cillian who’s been tailing Prophet for years. In the process, Prophet is forced to face his team’s shifting loyalties, ghosts who refuse to stay dead, and scariest of all, his own limitations.

With everyone’s lives in danger, Prophet and Tom must unravel a tangled knot of secrets, including their own. Prophet must decide how much to reveal to Tom, while Tom must decide how far he’s willing to go to help Prophet lay his ghosts to rest.

Creative Deeds Reads Review

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Wow…. that was…. I just….yeah…

So, I’m guessing you want more than that in a review? LOL!

This series just keeps getting more and more intense. As more characters are introduced (and re-introduced) and more layers are added and just as many mysteries crop up as are solved you almost need to have a score book to keep track. That’s not a complaint though. I like a book that keeps me on my toes and S.E. Jakes’ Hell or High Water series definitely does that.

It might sound crazy, but these tough alpha males are really tugging at my heart strings. Neither one of them are used to letting anyone in and they are both holding secrets close. Some of those secrets are held to protect themselves but most of them are to protect the other. If I had to choose between Prophet and Tom… I just couldn’t. My love for these guys is pretty equal. The series has progressed enough that they are beyond the games (to an extent) and their feelings for each other aren’t hidden from anyone. They’ve made their claim and now they just have to clear their way past… well, their past. Mostly Prophet’s past, but Tom is still dealing with stuff too.

I think what I like about this series most isn’t just Tom and Prophet, it’s the supporting characters that define them. Tom is the new guy, but he’s accepted (kinda) because Prophet trusts him. These guys don’t pull any punches and their loyalty to each other is what makes me want to get to know them better. There were a couple of characters that made a distinct impression on me in Daylight Again. One of them was Doc. I’ve always liked him but his interactions with Tom this time sealed the deal. Then there was Mal…. He was front and center in Dirty Deeds, but I felt even more connected to him in Daylight Again. Cillian I’m still not sure about, but that may be more about Tom than Mal. They jury’s still out on that one. Once he stops giving Tom death stares he might gain some ground… we shall see. 😉

A lot happened in Daylight Again, but there’s a lot more to come. The guys have taken care of some obstacles, but they may have created even more. Nothing is quite what it seems and even though this cliff hanger wasn’t as bad as Dirty Deeds‘ (ie: I wasn’t threatening to throw my eReader across the room and my jaw wasn’t dropping to the floor) I still want the next book sooner rather than later.
