◇☠️◇ RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Joy by Lilly Atlas ◇☠️◇

Title: Joy
Series: Hell’s Handlers MC
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: December 10, 2019

Life, death, trauma, healing; the Hell’s Handlers have been through it all over the past year. They’ve conquered old enemies, acquired new ones, and struggled through devastating upheavals. So far, they’ve come out on top, knocking down challenges by focusing on one essential ideal: family above all. With Copper at the helm, the Handlers are a patchwork family of bikers who will fight to the death for what they’ve created. 

And after all they’ve survived over the past three hundred and sixty-five days, the Handlers are ready to lay down their weapons, pick up their drinks, and coast through the holidays with nothing but joy in mind. But as often happens with life in an MC, Christmas takes a back seat to club drama.

As the year rolls to a close, the men and women of the club will experience new life, new chapters in love, and plenty of new beginnings. But not everything is sparkly and bright as dangerous enemies threaten the tight-knit group of rough and rowdy bikers. Will twenty-nineteen end in tragedy, or will the club once again emerge victorious in time to find a little joy for the holidays?



“All right, I think we are pretty much set then, don’t you?” Shell asked as she gazed across the booth at two of the most important women in her life, Toni and Stephanie. As friends, they’d come a long way in the past year or so. At first, Shell hadn’t been thrilled by Stephanie’s involvement with Maverick, at least after it had been revealed the other woman worked for the FBI. Fear for the club, fear for Copper, kept her a little cold initially, but now? After experiencing first-hand Stephanie’s loyalty to both Maverick and the club, Steph considered her a treasured friend.

More than a friend, really. Each of the club’s ol’ ladies had become her chosen family. Sisters of the heart. And one of their sisters was about to add another little one to the next generation of Handlers. Hence the baby shower planning meeting.

“Yeah,” Toni said. She and Shell had become instant friends almost from the moment they’d met when Toni took over the diner she’d inherited from her parents. The diner Shell worked at. “I’ve got the food and drinks covered. Ernesto agreed to cater for us. Holly is on desserts, of course, and she’s going to be running the show, day of. Shell, you and Chloe have decorations covered. Jazz is bringing the mommy-to-be around two, and our dear brave Stephanie here has come up with some games to play.”

Steph rolled her eyes as Toni and Shell snickered. “I’m having a hard time picturing Izzy playing any game that doesn’t involve beating someone bloody, but I’m giving it my best shot. Actually, since her due date was yesterday, I’m really hoping she’ll just go into labor before the shower.”

Izzy was going to make a…interesting mother, to say the least. A kick-ass tattoo artist who also happened to be an underground MMA fighter—though not for the past nine months—Izzy wasn’t exactly the PTA-joining, minivan-driving type. In fact, the pregnancy had been an astounding shock in the first place. Despite her less than maternal ways, Izzy was truly a phenomenal friend and all-around amazing woman. Shell had a feeling boy or girl, Iz was going to raise one incredible kiddo.

“Um, excuse me, Miss Toni?”

All three women turned toward the timid voice coming from the slip of a girl who stood near their booth, staring at the ground.

Toni’s expression softened, and she shifted to face the young teen. Her ratty sweatshirt hung off her small frame, and she wore jeans with torn knees. Not the fashionable kind, the old and worn kind. “Lindsey, what did I tell you about dropping the Miss?”

The girl shrugged her slight shoulders. Hanging in straggly strands down her back, her long auburn hair would be gorgeous if it had a good scrubbing and someone to style it properly.

Shell’s heart squeezed at the sight of the girl. She’d appeared at the diner a few days ago asking for a job. Since she was only thirteen and under the legal working age in Tennessee, Toni’s hands were tied. But of course, Shell’s compassionate friend found a way to help the girl without officially hiring her. She’d given her small jobs, taking out the trash, wiping tables, refilling napkin holders, and after each task had been completed, Toni gave the girl a meal and a little bit of cash.

Shell’s first thought was that the girl was a runaway and the authorities should be contacted. Toni had been reluctant but eventually agreed to call the sheriff’s department. Before they’d had the chance to place that call, Lindsey had sworn up, down, and backward she did not run away from home. She claimed to just be from a poor family and had begged them not to call the police.

Toni seemed to believe that about as much as Shell did, but Lindsey’s insistence on having a home limited their options. Toni hadn’t wanted to call the police regardless of Lindsey’s wishes. If it turned out the girl wasn’t lying, the cops would most likely call in child protective services, which wasn’t always a good thing. They needed more information before they acted, but details about herself were not something Lindsey dished out.

“You all finished with the trash?” Toni asked softly when it became apparent the gun-shy girl wasn’t going to speak again. Due to a rough past of her own, Toni had a soft spot for all troubled teenagers, but this girl seemed to have wormed her way into Toni’s heart more than most.

“Yes, ma’am.” Lindsey still hadn’t glanced up from where her tattered sneaker rubbed at a small scuff on the tiled floor.

“Oh no, ma’am is even worse than miss. Just Toni. Please.”

Lindsey nodded without looking up. She seemed as taken with Toni as Toni was with her, but she shut down when in a group. Or around men. So far, Shell hadn’t seen any signs of physical abuse, but she certainly had the skittish nature of someone who’d been mistreated.

“Well, thank you for coming around again today, Lindsey. You really saved me a lot of time and made it so I could get some other work done.” Toni dug a few bills out of her pocket and held them out.

Finally, Lindsey peeked up at Toni with a small smile on her face and two pink cheeks. “Thank you, ma—uh, Toni,” she said, snatching the money and holding it in a tight fist as though someone might try to snatch it from her at any point. Would they? Was that this poor child’s reality? Clinging to the lifeline of five dollars?

Whatever the reality of her situation, Lindsey seemed to be struggling just to make it through each day. Hopefully, Toni would be able to break through the girl’s wary exterior soon and provide more help than a few hot meals and a couple dollar bills. If she had a family in need of assistance, Toni would most likely move heaven and earth to provide it. If it turned out Lindsey was a runaway, well, Toni would probably let the girl move into the diner.

“Will we see you again tomorrow?”

Back to focusing on the floor, Lindsey nodded.

“Great. And, Lindsey?”

The girl tensed but gave Toni her attention.

“You have my phone number if you need anything, right?”

She nodded.

“Anything. At any time. And I mean that. I hope you’ll use it if you need it.”

“Thank you,” she whispered, then scurried out the front door.

“Gosh, that poor child,” Stephanie said, a hand pressed to her chest.

With a sigh, Toni nodded, her brown eyes following the girl as she darted across the parking lot. “Tell me about it. I’m trying to get some more information out of her, but she’s pretty locked up. She swears she isn’t homeless, but I’m worried. Do you think she’s lying, Shell?”

“I don’t know. Something seems off. Just breaks my heart.” Shell said as she tried to envision how difficult life would have been as a young teen on her own. It’d been hard enough surviving without help in her early twenties.

Across the diner, Shell’s own daughter let out a squeal of laughter as she sent her Barbie doll diving over the edge of a table. Shell couldn’t imagine a future where she’d kick Beth out of the house or one where Beth felt the need to run away. No, that little girl knew just how loved and cherished she was, no matter who she became or what she did. Hopefully, there was someone out there who felt the same about Lindsey, and if not, she had no doubt Toni would work her magic on the girl.

Shell’s lips curled as she watched her child entertain herself. Without thinking, her hand automatically moved to rest on her stomach. Though Beth was conceived in a traumatic manner, she’d been a blessing in ways Shell never could have imagined. And now that they lived with Copper, her daughter finally had the father she’d been denied for the first four years of her life.

Since moving in with Copper near six months ago, Shell—and Beth, for that matter—had never been happier. The man was attentive, affectionate, protective, and sexy as all get out. Shell hadn’t known one woman could have so many orgasms and still function.

Life was great.

Perfect, really.

Well, it had been until yesterday…

“Hello? Shell? Earth to Shell, come in Shell.”

She blinked. Toni’s form morphed into view as she waved her hand in front of Shell’s face. Her face heated. Both Toni and Stephanie were staring at her with expectant gazes from across the booth. “Sorry, uh, what did you say?”

Steph laughed. “Well, we said a lot. First, we asked if you were bringing Beth to the shower. Then when you didn’t answer, we asked if you were listening. When you still didn’t answer, Toni said she saw Copper running around the parking lot naked. When that didn’t even get your attention, we gave up. You good, girl?”

“Sorry, got lost for a second thinking about Lindsey. No, Beth and Copper are going on a daddy-daughter date tomorrow afternoon. I think I heard something about Frozen II and a big tub of popcorn.”

Toni pressed a hand over her heart. “Aw, he’s the cutest. Who the hell would have thought that giant, gruff, beast of a man would be the best daddy in the world?”

Shell smiled. She’d known. Of course, she’d known. How else could she have fallen in love with the man?

“Speaking of daddies,” Stephanie began, which had Toni groaning up at the ceiling.

“Please, if this is some sex story about you calling Mav daddy, just stop now. We don’t want to hear it. There’s not enough bleach in the supply closet to scrub an image like that from my brain.”

Shell giggled as she nodded. “She’s right, Steph. We love you, we love Mav, and we love that you’re all out there with your sex life, but there’s a limit to what our ears can handle.”

Face red, Stephanie tried to scowl, but her mouth couldn’t turn down since she was laughing as well. “That’s not what this is.” She paused, tilting her head. “Though you give me ideas. Anyway, I was just gonna ask who you think will be next?”

“Next?” Shell asked as she glanced over at Beth again. Her daughter still happily played with her dolls while munching on the French fries Toni had made her.

“Yeah, next on the baby train. Next to get knocked up. Next to repopulate the earth.” Steph sipped her coffee.

“Okay, I think we get it,” Toni said as she shook her head. “Well, we all know it’s not gonna be you.” She shot a pointed look in Stephanie’s direction.

“Nope. Not me. I’m uber careful about that shit. Babies scare the tar outta me. They’re all tiny and vulnerable.” She shuddered.

Shell snorted. “They’re actually a lot harder to kill than you’d think.” She shot Steph a wink.

“Well,” Toni said as she waved her hand back and forth. “It’s a dumb question anyway because we all know it’s gonna be you, Shell.”

“What? Me?” she squeaked. “Why do you say that?”

“Uhh, because you’re an awesome mom, you love kids, and you’ve mentioned a few times that you want a sibling for Bethy.”

“Not to mention your ol’ man is an old man,” Steph said as she shoved a ripped off chunk of muffin in her mouth.

“Thanks,” Shell said in a droll tone as her stomach fluttered. This conversation hit a little too close to home.

Toni bumped Steph with her shoulder. “He’s not old, he’s just older than Shell. The man is still sexy AF and probably will be when he’s eighty.”

True. So true.

“Well, we’ll see,” Shell said, pasting a smile on her face. It felt forced, fake.

“Yeah, we’ll see all right,” Steph said with a laugh. “We’ll see you get all big when you grow a monster-sized mini-Copper inside you.”

Despite her unease, Shell managed to chuckle. “We haven’t talked about it much actually. I’m still taking the pill, so…” She shrugged, hating the lies.

But she wasn’t ready to voice the truth.

“You’re crazy. That man can’t wait to knock you up.” Steph shook her head. “I give it until March. If you’re not carrying prez junior by March, I’ll…”

“Ohh, this could be good. You’ll what?” Toni said, turning her interested gaze on Steph.

“Yeah, what are you gonna offer me, Steph?” Shell waggled her eyebrows.

“Well—”

The bell above the entrance jangled. Glancing at her phone, Toni said, “Who is that? Zach isn’t supposed to be here for another forty-five minutes.” She stuck her head out the side of the booth to get a better view of the door then stiffened. “Shit,” she whispered.

“What?” Shell asked.

Across the booth, both Toni and Steph grew rigid and tense. Who the hell could it be? Shell stood slightly and glanced over her shoulder to where three men dressed very similarly to their own men strode into the diner. MC cuts, biker boots, bandanas, chains.

But one very big difference—the Chrome Disciples patch on each of their cuts.

Loved this so much!! This series is one of my favorite MC series and I had so many emotions while reading this book.

Normally I don’t like books with so many points of view but this one was awesome.

So many things happening as they’re preparing for the Holidays.

Suspenseful, emotional, laughter those are a few of the emotions I had while reading this book.

Can’t wait to see what this will bring for The Hell’s Handlers.

My Rating: 5 STARS!!

Release Date: December 9, 2019

Air Force fighter pilot, Monica Johnson, was born to fly. When a devastating accident clips her wings and sends her spiraling into despair, a one-time fling will be the only one who can help her.

“Queens shine each other’s crown”

Book 7 in The Dead Presidents MC series, Betting on Stock is my new favorite in this awesome series.

This is a book about empowering. A beautiful book about overcoming obstacles. A book about friends helping you when you need it the most (even if you don’t want to).

Monica is a QUEEN. She knows what she wants and is not afraid to go for it.

Love her so much. She is BADD@SS!!

She’s a fighter pilot. Ever since she was a little girl that has been her dream.

Then an accident happened and Monica’s wings are cut and her life is turned upside down.

Stocks is perfect for Monica. He knows what she is going through and is determined to help her.

Love the banter between Monica and Stocks. Monica’s quick-wit and Stocks’ humor. And they were hot between the sheets.

A beautiful book that I read in one sitting.

Couldn’t put it down.

My Rating: 5 STARS!!

Harley Stone writes mafia romance and funny-as-shit romantic fiction. When she’s not writing, she’s busy living out her real adventure in southwest Washington with her husband and their five boys.

Freya Barker does it again. Another amazing book that had me hooked from the beginning till the last page.

This story is one of my favorites ever bu her. It’s so well written. So many emotions while reading this book, I’ve swooned, fell in love with Trunk. I was also mad, sad that this is the reality of many people.

Titus Maximus Rae “Trunk”, is a child psychologist and member of the Arrow’s Edge MC. I confess, after Tracking Tahlula I was intrigued how Freya would get me to like or even fall in love with him. Well..she most definitely did it. Not only did I fall in love with him, he’s my new book boyfriend. Love everything about him.

His gentleness, his patience, his relationship with River and Ezrah and how much he loved Jaimie.

Loved Jaimie so much! She was strong, loyal and knew what or who she wanted from the very beginning.

This story, like usual with Freya Barker’s books has lots of suspense and angst.

Awesome storyline and so happy that this couple got their HEA.

My Rating: 5 STARS!!

Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and their own slice of happy.
A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

RELEASE BLITZ! Biker Babe by Audrey Carlan

Title: Biker Babe
Series: Biker Beauties #1
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2019
Blurb

From Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling
author of the Calendar Girl series.
Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly,
into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need
candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.
I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild,
fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and
ride through the night…in more ways than one.
I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I
was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my
life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands.
Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old
lady through thick and thin.
So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t
expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop
and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. Only problem, my father is
the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new
Vice President.
Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone
knows the President’s daughter is off limits.
The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected
standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in
heat, but don’t forget the sweet.
