review4.5 Stars

Layne has seen more than anyone person at his age should have to being a war veteran. Being part of the Heaven Hill MC has given him family and a way to continue the living in life the fast lane . Horrors from his days in the military plague Layne to this day. Sweet, caring, fierce and loyal.  Did I mention sexy with great taste in cars. When a special friend from the past asks for Laynes help, he can’t refuse.  Layne soon realizes that he may be more of a danger to her, than what she’s running from.

Jessica has been in the spotlight from a young age. As one grows they things they like, need or want in life changes.  This statement could not be more true for Jessica. The Hollywood starlet who is a bit spoiled and is in trouble.  Jess calls the one person on the earth who will not judge her and will help.  Jess, overwhelmed will everything going on, realizes that Layne just maybe in more trouble than herself.

I keep saying this with each book.  Ms. Briscoe just gets better with each book of the Heaven Hill MC, Series.  Worth the Battle is a little different from the other books of the series. Our hero needs needs the healing more than our lead lady.  Ms. Briscoe perfectly unfold the nastiness that lies with in Layne’s head while emotions from one end of the spectrum and back are laid on the table. Through laughter and tears Layne and Jess will make their way into your heart.  Ms. Briscoe has a magical way with words.  She has continued to pull me in more and more as we learn of this MC family!  With each book not only does the story become deeper emotionally, the growth Ms. Briscoe has achieved as a writer can not go unnoticed.  She has quickly found a permanent spot on my shelve.

Review-Losing Control by Laramie Briscoe

18403760Losing Control

Laramie Briscoe

Heaven Hill MC Series, Book 3

http://www.laramiebriscoe.com/

Strip-club waitress.
Aspiring Teacher.
Friend of the Heaven Hill MC.

Bianca Hawks met Jagger Stone in the most embarrassing of ways. After watching him play music at Wet Wanda’s for months, she fell half naked into his arms after a drunken bout with a stripper pole and the back of a pick-up truck. Avoiding him and his killer smile no longer works when she needs her car repaired and he comes to her rescue. His request for payment comes in the form of date nights spent with just the two of them – away from both the strip club and the MC.

Tough guy with model good looks.
Talented musician.
Newly patched member of the Heaven Hill MC.

Jagger Stone only wanted two things – to be a patched member of the Heaven Hill MC and to get to know Bianca Hawks. One for two isn’t bad, but when her car breaks down and she’s left with no one else to help her, he plays the situation to his advantage. Over late nights driving up and down the interstate and nights in spent at her apartment, Jagger realizes that there is so much more to Bianca than he ever knew.

When her dream of becoming a school teacher is threatened by someone who wants her all to himself, the two of them are thrown into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. For the first time, Heaven Hill isn’t sure what they are up against or if they can keep their family safe. In times of danger, Bianca and Jagger know the only thing they can do is hold onto each other while trying not to admit they are losing control.

Almost too sweet and the Rockstar of the MC,  newly patched Jagger will warm your heart with his voice. That sexy body does not hurt one bit. I have enjoyed read about Jagger and found him be a much deeper man that I would have ever thought. With an upbringing that was not of an everyday child, the love from the family within the Heaven Hill MC was all he knew.  Until he caught that breath taking waitress, Jagger didn’t know what hit him.

 

Bianca has a dream. One she has been working and fighting for for years. Shes strong, highly independent, more than able to take care of herself and will stop at nothing to make her dream come true.  As she is in the final steps of her education,Bianca stumbles upon two major bumps that could change all she has worked for. The good,feelings for Jagger make her want to feel more! The bad, a touchy feely guy at the bar who holds power to put her dream to end.

 

Bianca and Jagger have my favorite meeting of all the Heaven Hill, MC paring thus far. A funny moment with a stripper pole in a previous book.  Ms. Briscoe has again caught me in the web that is the Heaven Hill MC!  Book three, Losing Control show serious growth in both the series and the writer.

 

Ms. Briscoe beautifully transitions the darkness and healing of Meredith and Tyler’s story, into the playfulness of Jagger and Bianca’s. A fresh and sassy feeling that gives this couple a story that is both sexy and sweet! Funny, romantic and flirtatious, as Jagger and Bianca keep each other on their toes, they gain weight in your heart!

 

Losing Control continues to show the growth that Ms. Briscoe has made as an author.  Her talent for  character writing is shining through. Each one has their good and bad.   Where they share similarities in personality each one is very equine.  Giving each one that little something that makes me love them.

Review- Out of Darkness by Laramie Briscoe

17971638Title: Out of Darkness

Series: Heaven Hill, MC               

Author: Laramie Briscoe

Genre: Romance, Biker

Format: E-Book

Blurb:

Ex-News reporter.
Rape survivor.
Former enemy of the Heaven Hill MC.

Meredith Rager’s life completely changed the night she was attacked by an unknown person. Once a vibrant force that threatened everything about Heaven Hill, she is now under their care. The only place she feels safe is inside their compound. When she decides to take back the part of her life that her rapist took away, she discovers secrets that once again could tear the club apart.

Orphan.
Formidable force of nature.

Tyler Blackfoot came into the world a John Doe. An orphan from the moment that he took his first breath, the only thing anyone knew was his Native American heritage.

Protecting her means everything – even when he discovers danger might be closer than either of them thought possible.

Together, the two of them are trying to make a life for themselves. Against everything they have, they’re hoping to see the light that will lead them out of darkness.

 

review4.5 Stars

I’m pretty sure I fell in love with Tyler Blackfoot in the first book of the Heaven Hill motorcycle club series. Sexy and mysterious yet this charismatic man, will keeps you guessing.  I’m not sure he ever truly answers a question with a true answer. Loyal, intense and deep, Tyler will make you heart flutter!  Ms. Briscoe put the heart of an angel with the vengeance of the devil in this man.  He is truly unique.

Meredith is a stronger woman than I first gave her credit for. I really did not want to like her. She is presented as independent woman who thought she was at the top of the world. A reporter and nosey by nature, she put herself in a place with the wrong people. She took the worst fall a woman could. She not only had to get her life back, she had to find her femininity.

 

I believe Ms. Briscoe found her true writing voice in Out of Darkness. I am not sure I can even put into words the amazing amount of growth I see for Ms. Briscoe from her first to second books in this series. Everything from the flow of the book to the emotions, were kicked up a notch. The depth of Tyler and Meredith is breath taking. Events of the book will draw all kinds of emotion out of you. She really allows the reader see what this family of Bikers are like on the inside and out. Out of Darkness is one intense ride. Hold on tight!
