WILD WAYS                                             TINA WAINSCOTT

Wild Ways (Justiss Alliance, #2)The Justiss Alliance returns in Tina Wainscott’s novel of outlaws and daredevils, as the search for a missing woman forces two brave souls to tap into their wild side.

When her sister, Diana, rides off into the sunset with a member of the Kings of Chaos motorcycle gang, Mollie Reagan is beyond worried. Two weeks later, a desperate call from Di is abruptly cut off, launching Mollie on a dangerous search.

Before Julian Cuevas receives his first assignment for the Justiss Alliance, he finds one of his own: a beautiful, courageous woman looking for her sister in the dark world of violent criminals. Soon Mollie’s mission is Julian’s mission—one he’d give his life for.

Mollie is used to going it alone. Trusting one stranger is hard enough, but Julian brings a whole team from the private “security” firm he works for. The sexy SEAL is living proof that some people can be counted on, even if her savior is a well-armed world-class sniper riding in on his Harley. From head to toe, Julian is a lethal weapon—and now he’s taking aim at fulfilling Mollie’s every desire,

     What happens when you have a discharged Navy SEAL, Julian Cuevas, from Miami, and a unassuming yet beautiful woman Mollie Reagan cross paths?  You get excitement, chuckles, and whole lot of sexual chemistry.
     You see Julian and his buddy Rath, (part of the whole SEAL team that was discharged) were parting company.  Julian had decided that he could not continue anymore living on the road following leads of who caused the “cluster fuck” that set up his whole SEAL team and with them all being discharged with not any further action.  Basically a mock trial for the U.S. getting caught with its hand in the cookie jar.
Julian was going to go work for a fat cat named Chase, where 3 of his team had already had signed on at.
     Rath had no sooner left the bar parking lot when a car with a man and woman rolled up.  Julian blended further into the shadows so he could get closed to see what they were up to.  He realized she is the same woman he had seen at the gas station earlier.  The guy was say the man she was to be meeting was already 5 minutes late.  That they should leave.
She said no she should wait more time.  He was telling her how bad this gang was, that their waiting around was not in their best interest.  She gets out to wait, so does he.  When a taxi rolls up he thinks better of the situation, he tells Mollie that he can’t do this, she wasn’t paying him enough.  He reaches in his pocket pulls out her money and gives it back to her along with the keys to the rental. It was her sister after all she couldn’t leave, and live with herself.
     Once the taxi leaves Julian appears out in the open by her car.  Hands in his pockets in hopes of appearing less threatening.  He does not achieve that though.  He asks where her boyfriend’s is going.  He finds out from her he had offered his services for a small fee to help her find her sister, who she believes was kidnapped by the Kings of Chaos.  Mainly Brick the guy she says she is in love with and he loves her.  Mainly Brick helps her with her drug habit.  When she first takes off with him there were phone calls, Facebook contact and text.  Her last call home to Mollie was disconnected in the middle of Diana’s (Birdy) asking for help.
     Mollie has become obsessed putting herself at risk like now and Julian tries to tell her.  Offers to help she says, “No.”
So, he leaves only goes down the road texts Rash to come back ASAP and then calls Chase saying what he is dealing with and he needs him yesterday.  When the bar maid asked Mollie to pull around back and wait for Billy Bob her important he doesn’t want anyone to see him.  She feds uncomfortable and wishes now she lets Julian stay.  No soon does she stop when a bike rolls into the lot.  She leaves someone from the bar comes out then someone from the bar comes out then life as she knows it changes. I give this 5 stars.

HOLD ON TIGHT                                   SERENA BELL
Posted:  10/6/14

Hold on Tight by Serena BellFighting for his country gave Jake Taylor’s life shape and meaning. Now as an injured war hero he struggles to find purpose, until he runs into the gorgeous woman he dated briefly—and disastrously—before being deployed eight years ago. Turns out Jake doesn’t just need to figure out how to be a civilian . . . he also needs to learn how to be a dad.

Eighteen, pregnant, and totally lost, Mira Shipley couldn’t track down the soldier who fathered her child, so she put college on hold and focused on making a good life for her son. Now she’s determined to be something more than Sam’s mom, her parents’ daughter, or Jake’s girl—as hot as she finds her old flame’s take-charge attitude in and out of bed. Soon Mira and Jake realize that their passion didn’t disappear when Sam was conceived—and that instead of running away, sometimes it’s better to hold on tight.

 This story for all intent and purposes should have never even have been a couple in a true sense of the word.  You see Mira Shipley had just turned 18 a month ago and she was getting ready to leave for college.  When she told her father she was going to art school not regular college her father being the controlling man he is said no.  She knew that he was not paying for it.  She got pissed off and she and a friend went out bowling where they met up with some guys.  The guys she up with were at the bowling alley where she and friend where at.  The guy she ended up with was Jake Taylor.
     Jake Taylor is 20 and leaving for Afghanistan in a week.  So neither was looking for more than a one night stand.  Once he gets her all hot and bothered he figures out this will be her first time or one of her few times she will be having sex.  They decide to end up at the lake they decided to go skinny dipping.  They start to have sex except he only gets an inch in and she realizes he is not jacketed so they try again with the condom in place.
     This time he gets about a third of the way and it is to painful due to the girth of his penis.  He’s thinking they will try tomorrow since he had several more days on leave.  When he realizes she’s crying.  When she basically says that not only had she not been able to have sex with him due to his girth, but that she was getting to…then she asked before he could tell her not to.  She asked can we see each other when you come home on leave.  He said no, when everything in him was screaming yes.  She stands up and starts dressing and gathering all the things that she had brought with them all in silence.  She gets out of the car never looking back.  He wanted to jump out and say he changed his mind but he couldn’t. 
     8 years later she’s waiting in the physical therapy room for her 7 year old son, Sam.  When an amputee enters the waiting area.  He was muscular and stuck to himself.  When she turned around again to look at him she realized that it was HER Jake sitting there, NO!  Sam’s Jake. 
     She now Ms. Bell weaves such a believable yarn as they use to say.  She kept me engaged with the characters and wondering what would be happening next.  It gives you a real taste of what it is like for rejected serviceman. (As in no longer needed.)  Also, how they are so messed up mentally but that they also have medical needs.  I gave this 5 stars.
