Title: Gemini Kings
Series: Gemini Kings MC #1
Author: Noreen Machelle
Genre: MC/Dark Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2021
Gemini Kings by Noreen Machelle is a dark and heavy MC romance, but it will pull you in. From the first chapter, this book brims with emotion. Both characters suffered a great loss - Lil lost her brother, and Stokes lost his best friend. That terrible night 7 years ago changed them both. Can they get past all of the heartbreak and find a way to move forward together?
Kickstart My Heart is exactly the book you need
When I first read the blurb for this book I was happy to read another single guy meets single mom book. I like that trope, especially when the guy steps up and shows his daddy skills. I meant with the kid - get your filthy mind out of the gutter! Anyway, I wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did. I practically devoured it in one sitting - it was that good...
A really fun glimpse behind the scenes of reality tv
If you're a fan of shows like The Bachelor or Big Brother, or even Paradise Island (remember that?) this is the perfect book for you. The characters are on a reality tv show called Love or Lust, where they are competing against other hot singles for money and to be the last couple standing. What a fun idea for a book! I love the aspect of getting to see behind the camera and seeing how these shows are actually run. Because the reality aspect is a bit far fetched when it comes to reality tv - we all know that, right?
I loved this book...
The Sweet Talker by fellow Canadian girl Gina Azzi was a welcome treat. A sweet contemporary romance that got me hooked. This is book one in the Boston Hawks Hockey series, and I can't wait until the other books come out. Noah and Indiana have known each other for years but have never really seen each other. That all changes one night when they have what's supposed to be a one night stand. Deciding they want to keep seeing each other (let's face it, when the sex is that good, you don't turn away) - they agree to a friends with benefits sort of deal. Since Noah has recently ended a serious relationship, and since Indiana doesn't trust hockey players because she used to date a hockey douche, they agree to stay friends - but only friends - just with benefits. Of course, what they don't count on is feelings getting involved.
Seeing their romance blossom was so great and I must admit that I may have cried a bit during the angsty parts. Thankfully the book is told from dual perspective - I love getting to see what both characters are thinking. I'm so used to it now with contemporary romances that if a book doesn't have the guy's POV I'm missing it. One thing I will say is - and since it is told in the blurb I'm not spoiling anything - Indiana does end up pregnant. I like the surprise baby trope but in this case, I wish it hadn't been revealed in the blurb. It would have been better to find it out later as opposed to expecting it. In every sexy scene I kept checking if they were using birth control and my focus may not have been where it should have been, if you get my drift. That being said, I still loved this book and I loved Noah and Indiana. Easton, Noah's brother's story is next and I can't wait.

The Kline Brooks Collection
Amazing writing duo Max Monroe created a book boyfriend god in Kline Brooks when they wrote Tapping the Billionaire a few years back. His and Georgia's romance is the stuff of legend amongst their fans and we're always asking them for more from this couple. Finally, we get our wish. In this - the Kline Brooks Collection - Max Monroe has compiled the two stories that feature Kline and Georgia - Tapping the Billionaire and Tapping Her, as well as a brand new novella Be My Billionaire Valentine - which is so exciting! I was craving more Kline and I was so happy to read this short romantic story about him and Georgia. Max Monroe definitely love their fans and this is great for new and old fans alike - if you've never been introduced to Kline, then you can get all of his stories at once. If you love Kline like I do, you get all of his stories plus a brand new novella to keep you satisfied. And if there is one thing that Kline knows how to do - it's keep a woman satisfied. I loved this collection and I just know that you will too. Keep reading for all the details - and I've also given a throw back to my review on Tapping the Billionaire, for those of you who have never been tapped, but are looking to give it a whirl. Thanks to the author and to SocialButterfly PR for the ARC of this collection in exchange for an honest review.
A Wild Ride - you won't want this book to end
I think I’ll start off by saying that this was the best MC romance I’ve read in a long time. It was SO good. And I’ve read my share of MC romances - okay, basically in the past year I’ve been obsessed. I love them. And this one really tops the list for me. Riggs, by sister writing duo Sandy Alvarez and Crystal Daniels, is book one in the Kings of Retribution MC Louisiana Chapter. It can be read as a standalone, but we do meet members from the original Kings of Retribution Montana series - so if you want to know who everyone is, you should read through the first series beforehand. I happened to read Riggs first, and now I’m so intrigued by everyone that I’m going back to read the OG books.
This book starts you off right in the action and doesn’t let up - it’s a wild ride you’ll enjoy until the very last page. We meet Riggs, a former military man who still goes on freelance missions when he’s needed. He is also the president of the Kings’ Louisiana chapter and when Jake, the president of the Montana chapter, calls him needing his help, he doesn’t hesitate. Jake is protecting Luna, the only witness in a murder investigation. Her ex is in charge of another MC and he’s bad news. She saw something she shouldn’t have and now she’s running for her life. He keeps on tracking Luna down and so Jake suggests she leave Montana and go to New Orleans with Riggs. While at first Riggs is a bit annoyed at having to babysit, that changes as soon as he sees Luna. She becomes his - in true Alpha male caveman style. He vows to protect her with his life. Luna and Riggs embark on a dangerous but fulfilling journey to get her life back, but to also build a life together.
This book has action, suspense, and some truly romantic moments. The couple is likeable and interesting and I can honestly say you won’t want to put this book down. Riggs is the ultimate Alpha hero and Luna is sweet, but she also gains confidence and becomes a bit of a badass throughout the book. I can’t wait to read the others in the series and get a closer look at the other characters. If you want to get started with Riggs, you’re in luck because for a limited time, it’s on sale for 99 cents! See purchase links below.

Abel LeBlanc, better known to his brothers as Riggs—President for The Kings of Retribution MC, Louisiana Chapter. As a former Green Beret, he runs the club with the same amount of precision and grit he did serving his country.
Dedicating years of his life to mercenary missions, and to his club left no time or desire to settle down and start a family of his own. What good could come of loving a woman if he could never promise her forever when he willingly puts his life on the line every day.
No one has ever come close to making him want more.
A call from Jake; President and founder of The Kings of Retribution MC has Riggs and his men on the road toward Montana. Their objective—protect a woman from falling into the hands of another MC.
Little did Riggs know when his eyes fell upon the striking woman with violet eyes, she would alter his life forever.
Growing up in the system is hard enough for any kid. For Luna Novak, not being able to hear the world around her made surviving in it the most terrifying and isolating experience of her life.
Though she doesn't have much, Luna feels she has finally gotten to a point in her life where her future doesn’t look so grim. That is until she makes the mistake of putting her trust in the hands of the wrong man—almost costing Luna her life.
For Luna to protect herself and survive, she must leave Arizona behind for a new life in Polson. When her past follows her, threatening the lives of those around her, Luna soon finds herself under the protection of the local MC.
Leaving with Riggs and going back to Louisiana with him becomes her only choice. Her heart tells her Riggs will keep her safe, yet fear screams for her to run.
The pull she feels toward Riggs is stronger than any feeling she has felt before, but can she put her trust and her life in the hands of another man so quickly?
