The zombie apocalypse was Alexis Winter’s first challenge. It won’t be her last. Life on S-Island hasn’t been easy, but Alexis and her fellow survivors are making the best of their new lives in a post-Z world. Every day is a struggle, a struggle to find food, to keep the zombies from their door and to prepare for anything this new world might throw at them. There is no room for heartache, there is no room for mourning the lost, there is only one focus: the fight for survival. And there is definitely no room for love. At least that is what Alexis keeps telling herself.
The second installment in the NOLA Zombie series by Gillian Zane. Be warned, there will be monsters, living and dead, there will be very intense sexy-time and there will be a third book.

Rhyme Devereux is a pseudonym of an American writer of erotic and contemporary romance. Her stories are sexy, emotionally driven, and a whole lot of kink. Even though her passion for reading began in her tween years, and her favorite author at that time was Judy Blume, Rhyme never imagined herself writing as a career. But looking back, it makes sense. As an only child, she would spend some days entertaining herself with happily-ever-after stories. For decades, Rhyme dabbled in writing one chapter story ideas before she got the courage to self-published her book, At Your Mercy, which was released in 2013. She started out writing short romance stories in hopes of getting the courage (and patience) of writing a full-length novel. Rhyme lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, children (some are adults and they made me add this bit of info.), and two dogs. Rhyme is addicted to anything that tastes sweet, hair and makeup products, and naughty love stories. She is also an avid reader of all sub-genres of romance fiction. Thanks for wanting to get to know Rhyme better. But by far, her books are much more exciting.
They thought with his execution it would all be over.
They were wrong.
The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.
In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot, the terrifying leader of Satan’s Army motorcycle gang, and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.
Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.
Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.
And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.
Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?
1979: “Yes! There is something I want for my birthday. Something I really want! I’ve been thinking about our prom date last year.”
“You want another romantic night at Martin’s beach house?” He grinned, relieved. A night making love with Kit at the beach house. Ohhhhh yeahhhh.
“No. Not the beach house.” She was bouncing in her seat now. “I want you to take me out! Dancing. I want to go to a club and go dancing.”
His smile faded and he looked a little deflated. He wasn’t going to tell her his name. He wasn’t going to go to church with her. How could he tell her no to the third thing she’d asked for?
“Shit, baby. You have to know I’m not a dancer. I barely got by with the slow dancing in Martin’s gazebo.”
“I want to go dancing, Grizz. Please! The only time I ever get to dance is when I convince Axel to dance with me in number four. And you know that’s barely ever. He won’t do it if there are a lot of people at the motel. He doesn’t want to risk being seen.”
Grizz had to smile at this. He’d walked in more than once on Axel and Kit dancing to one of those groups that Kit loved. If you asked him, those guys’ voices sounded like someone had their balls in a vice. A high-pitched squeal is all he ever heard and he never stayed around long enough to listen to an entire song.
“Why do you dance to a song about a bald-headed woman?” He’d asked her once.
Axel and Kit had stopped and peered at him strangely. “What do you mean by bald headed woman?” Kit had asked as Grizz turned the stereo down.
“These guys, who sound like women, are singing about a bald-headed woman,” Grizz replied.
She’d started laughing. “The Bee Gees are saying ‘more than a woman,’ Grizz. Not bald-headed woman! The song is called More Than a Woman and I happen to love it.”
“Whatever it’s called, it still sucks. I’m outta here.”
Grizz appreciated that Axel danced with his wife. And yes, he knew Axel’s other secret, too. He honestly didn’t care. He didn’t care what any guy decided to do with his dick as long as it was never near his wife. But he also knew he had to keep Axel’s secret. As leader, he had final say as to who could be in the gang. Still, he knew not everyone would be tolerant of Axel’s lifestyle. It was just easier to let it stay a secret. And besides, he was certain nobody suspected a thing.
“I don’t dance, Kit.” Grizz said now, shaking his head.
“But I want to go dancing for my birthday.” She folded her arms and gave him an accusing look. “You asked!”
He shook his head slightly and looked at her. “Can’t I just buy you another car?”

The Finnegan brothers are bound to hurt any girl that gets between them. But that doesn’t stop Lena. She loves pain with her pleasure. When things get too hot for her to handle, she does the only thing she can do to protect herself… she runs away. Three years later, Lena is back in town for her father’s wedding. She prays she can avoid her past, hoping nobody remembers her parents’ messy divorce or how she disappeared. However, as soon as she arrives, she finds she can’t run from her past anymore. There’s no escaping the Finnegan brothers. Not this time.
I don’t even know where to begin my review for the Finnegan Brothers series 😦 I read this thing, cover-to-cover and found myself truly hoping it would pull itself out of the “Hot Mess” category. Unfortunately, that did not happen with this read. Here are the problems:
Characters: Other than Mackenzie, the youngest member of the cast, there isn’t a single likeable character in this read. It’s a bit sad when the most mature character in the entire series is a teenage girl. I found each of the main characters to be either completely immature or incredibly fake. Lena has no idea what she’s doing with her life so she runs around making one bad choice after another, Blake is apparently angry at everyone, Slade is both angry and a reckless drunk, Charity is just a twit . . . . you get the idea. I am a very character-driven reader so to find only one character that felt even the least bit likeable/relatable was very hard for me to get past.
The Plot: There are a lot of holes and issues with this plot. Some of the holes are small and easy to ignore and others are craters. Like the holes, some of the plot issues are easy to ignore but others are glaring. For example, there is very little backstory in this read which make understanding the actions and words of some of the characters difficult to comprehend. What has Blake been doing for the past three years? Where did Lena’s dad meet Charity, the woman who broke up her parent’s marriage, why don’t we know more about Slade and the downward spiral he has been on? As a lover of backstories, the lack of backstories made the entire read feel flat. Back stories help flesh out characters and make the read and characters more interesting. What you have here is just a series of events with little to no context.
The Sex: Again I am forced to point out that gratuitous sex never works!! For the length of this read, there is a lot of sex and most of it doesn’t really work with the story. I LOVES me some naughty bits in my reads but not when they are thrown in for the hell of it and have little to do with the actual story. Remember Lena’s bad choices I mentioned above? Yep, most of them involve sex and her trying to sex her way into liking a guy better in order to get over another guy. While I can deal with that, it is the last bout of naughty that just defies reason. Seriously? You run out back at a wedding and ride the guy to orgasm all before your little sister calls you back in for the cutting of the cake???
The Bottom Line: Had this series been any longer, I likely would have DNF’d it. From start to finish, there are so many issues and problems with this read that I found it hard to enjoy. I generally try to find some good in every book I read and I don’t like to rant but this book really pushed me past my limits.
Holiday romances are supposed to be fun…..and quick…….not burned into your damn brain. My skin is branded with her name, my heart is branded with her betrayal and now seven years later I have been forced to return to find that she is just as fucking perfect as ever, the ultimate temptation. I don’t want her and I definitely can’t have her. I just need to get my cock to keep up with my brain.
Unconditional love, does it really exist or is it an urban myth? What does it really mean? Do you love someone because of their flaws? Or in spite of them. And at what point are the conditions more to bear. Than the love is worth. This is what I’m trying to decipher. This is my story. I’ll let you be the judge.
Joshua and Natasha are finally as one, so in love like never before. But how dark are the secrets and how deep are the lies? And when all is said and done, are their lives and love completely safe?
