REVIEW: Dream & Dare (The Night Horde SoCal #3.5) by Susan Fanetti

Jerome “Hoosier” Elliott is the President of the Night Horde SoCal. He has worn a patch for many years, and he’s led his club, and his family, through times of strength and times of struggle.

For most of those years, his old lady, Bedelia Beth—“Bibi” to those who know and love her—has stood by his side. Club life has had its challenges, some almost insurmountable, but they have made each other strong and waited for each other always.

Together, they made the club a family.

After club violence tears them apart, Hoosier needs Bibi to find him and bring him back. The way to their future is their past: the story of the life they’ve made together, and the dreams they’ve dared to make come true.

Note: Explicit Sex and Violence.

5 "Cheeks" Stars

Absolutely devoured this in one sitting! This is Hoosier, Jerome Andrew Elliott, the president of the Night Horde SoCal MC and Bibi's, Bedelia Beth Ladue, his old lady and mother to all, tale.

This story takes place in both the present and the past as Bibi fights to bring Hooj back to those who love him. Their story starts with Hoosier in hospital still recovering from the fire. He’s awake but he can’t speak, he’s learning to walk and has to develop his motor skills and he only recognizes Bibi. The doctors fear due to his age and his injuries, if he doesn’t start communicating soon, he will be lost to them. So Bibi tells him their story to “Lead him back to the present.” And so it begins…

”You know what. Darlin’ I am goin’ to tell you a story today. It’s the best story I know.”

This is a story of the strength of love and endurance of a relationship through the good, the bad and the ugly. Hooj and Bibi have a 42 year marriage that has seen and endured it all. I can’t tell you how each Fanetti novel I read seems like my favourite at the time because of how well Ms. Fanetti evokes the voices, the hearts and the minds of her characters.

Living through the eyes of Hoosier and Bibi was emotional and also absolutely inspiring. It truly demonstrates that even through the tears, the blood, the scars –physical and mental – setbacks and heart ache, true love can persevere.

The human heart, mind and spirit is a formidable foe and with its soul mate at its side, it will not be broken or shaken no matter what.

Another awesome read from Ms. Fanetti!

REVIEWS: Kaleidoscope Hearts (Hearts #1) by Claire Contreras

**New York Times & USA Today Best Seller** 

He was my older brother's best friend.

He was never supposed to be mine.

I thought we would get it out of our system and move on.

One of us did.

One of us left.

Now he's back, looking at me like he wants to devour me. And all those feelings I'd turned into anger are brewing into something else, something that terrifies me.

He broke my heart last time.

This time he'll obliterate it.

**This is a full-length, standalone, contemporary romance.**

5 My Favourite Person EVER Stars

You know there are times in our lives where we want to feel secure and we need reliability, we want comfort and we want a future. Then there is the thirst quenching toe curling heart beating love and I'd say this book is how both kinds of worlds collide together...

This is the kind of read where your heart clashes with your head and there is the summer salt of emotions where you question what they WANT and what they NEED.

"I always thought you were mine," ~ swooooon

This book is about timing and healing and what should be done. It goes over a period of time, some past chapters from Oliver's POV and to present with Elle's POV. It's a gradual development of the characters and where you have an understanding about Who they are, where they're coming from and how their story progresses from A to B.

Oliver and Elle have been childhood friends. Oliver is Elle's brother best friend from a young age therefore he has fitted into the brother place in Elle's life. To Everyone else that's who they are, brother and sister yet to them they're so much more, no incest here it's just how her real bro Vic is, he's protective and it's how it happens. Therefore they tread there relationship carefully. I can't really explain much else apart from its how the story was told to me rather than the actual relationship. Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful book but the way Claire so eloquently wrote emotions and sentiments throughout the book blew me away, I COULDN'T put it down once I got to a certain point. I highlighted the whole book LOL

"Sometimes we give up a lot of ourselves for the people we love"

I feel there are several parts in our life as we grow a journey of sorts, this to me was alllll that and more. We take chances and risks and we grow into the people we are as we do so, again Elle and Oliver learn how to breathe with each other as they grow, they learn about LIFE and about how to LOVE but more importantly the different kinds of love.

I will just say if you haven't read this, take the plunge. A real feel good read, not too much angst just enough to keep you pushing the pages forward.

"I don't want to say that I feel complete when I'm with him- but when I'm with him I feel like a better version of myself. And I think that's what has always drawn me to Oliver. He makes me feel good about who I am, and I don't feel like I need to change or pretend when I'm around him. I'm just me, and being me has never felt better."

And a BIG Thank you to Elizabeth and Suzanne for the BR!! Love ya girlies ❤

I'm sooo looking forward to Jensen's and Mia's story roll on September!!

5 "One date, Elle.” Stars

“This is our canvas. Let’s paint it how we want it.”

I must admit I didn't plan on reading this book. I've only read one other book by this author and for me, while the writing style was good, the story was meh. I did plan on giving the author another try with her Darkness series but my Slut Sistas were doing a BR and I couldn't resist. I'm truly glad that I read this book!!

I had so many feels for this story and immediately loved both Estelle and Oliver.

This story is all about how you can't plan life or love. It happens and you're either ready to accept the chance with open arms or fight it because the timing or circumstance isn't ideal. Well, let's face it, life isn't perfect or planned or ideal, it's messy and complicated and beautiful even with its flaws. And that's what Ms. Contreras reminds us with this moving, heart wrenching love story.

“A storm of lust rises inside me, and my heart continues to trip over itself as his lips descend on me over and over.”

“I always wondered what it would be like to kiss you,” she whispered.
“And?” I asked.
“It was…everything.”

If you're a die hard romantic and love the younger sister, big brother's best friend/forbidden love troupe then you'll thoroughly enjoy this book.

I'm already looking forward to Mia and Jensen's story.
