Review: Decker's Wood

Decker's Wood
Decker's Wood by Kirsty Dallas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every now and again you pick up a book that surprises you. Decker's Wood was one of those books.

I wasnt sure what to expect. I had not read anything by this author before, but I kept hearing good things about it, so I decided to give it a go. And Iam so glad I did.

Decker's Wood is hilarious. Laugh out Loud funny. It was refreshing and different, and that alone made me love it. Add in characters that you cant help but to love and it was a recipe worthy of a blue ribbon.

Decker is a porn star. Caught up in a lifestyle of money and recognition he doesnt feel like his life is missing anything. He has no desire to settle down, and his over confident cocky self, has no plan for the future. When he all of a sudden cant get it up, the world begins to look a little different. What do you do when your money maker wont work??

Enter Andi, wholesome, naive, country girl, with big dreams of making it in New York. She decides to leave her Texas life after her father passes away, and chase her dreams. Owning and running a used book store. When her cousin Bradley asks his friend, Decker - whom they grew up with - to pick her up from the airport, Decker is more than irritated. But, they all grew up together and he feels an obligation to pick up the awkward, non social, weird, gangly, book nerd. HE hasnt seen her in over 10 years. And when he does, and his money maker responds to her, he is left wondering what in the world his problem really is. But what he does know, is that Andi is all grown up. And the awkward teenager has turned into a stunning woman.

Decker's story is one of growing up. Realizing that times shift and change. It's a story of self awareness and self discovery. Where one learns what they really want out of life, and the goodness that can come from growing up. And, I adored Decker. He was totally loveable. With just enough bad boy in him to make you swoon. He was a total trip. And some of his views on life were totally out there.

The "side" characters in this one were fabulous. I loved them just as much as the main ones. Andi's next door neighbors Casey and Lionel are a match made in heaven --- total opposites in so many ways, but totally perfect in all the ways that matter. They were hilarious, and I want to find a set of friends just like them. (Note to author---can they get their own book??? Pretty Please??) And some of the porn stars that Decker worked with were just as interesting. Moaning Mona for instance... just wait till you meet her. And then you have Vanessa the Undresser... yep, you just wait.

This book was fantastic. When you need a book that will make you laugh, this is that book. When you need a book that is a light easy read, this is that book. I finished it in one sitting. I couldnt find a good stop point because all the shenanigans made me overly curious to find out what happened. Decker's Wood will most likely make my top 2014 list -- I loved it that much.

Even though this is a stand alone, I hope that some of the other characters start invading the authors brain and not relent. I would LOVE to see this turn into a series. *sigh

Review: Devil's Game by Joanna Wylde

Devil's Game
Devil's Game by Joanna Wylde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I swear this series just gets better and better... Im itching for the next one, Reaper's Stand...

I love a good MC book. And part of what I love about Joanna's series is the "realness". As a girl that has run with clubs, people really can't imagine some of the stuff that goes on, and the things that are "normal" and "acceptable" within the MC culture. Now, the books are always sensationalized, but, the heart of it is dead on.

Hunter... just wow. He is part of the Devils Jack MC. Rival to the Reapers. He goes and falls in love with the Reapers President, Picnic, daughter. That is never a good thing. You can't sleep with the enemy and come out unscathed. Iam not sure what I was expecting, but what I got was not it. After meeting him in the last book, I think I had him pictured as a total ass. And although he could rear his head and the cocky S.O.B. would rise, deep down where it matters he was a good guy. Now, Iam not one to throw out spoilers, I hate it when other people do. So I can't really get into why he blew me away. But I will say, that he had my jaw on the floor with some of the choices he made. Alpha to his core, and a dirty mouth to rival any trucker, he had me hot and bothered a few times. How in the world Em was able to resist him, I have no idea. (crazy girl....)

Em is the daughter of the Reaper's President Picnic. She has grown up in the club, and she knows how things run and where her place is. And she doesn't like it. So in an attempt to make a life for herself, she leaves home to go to college. Little did she know that life was changing... what's a girl to do when her heart belongs to the enemy? The heart wants what it wants. So who do you give up? The man you love or the father you adore? How can anyone trust that she isn't going to turn and feed info to the other or play them against each other?

Life can throw you lemons and you have to find a recipe and make lemonade. And this is one crazy story. Nothing happened like I thought it would. Everything was face paced and flowed. I read it in one sitting. And I wanted to cry when it ended. I have a huge book hangover... I need more Reapers.

All the gang showed up. Horse is still my favorite, and Ruger makes me want to climb him like a monkey and fuze myself to him... Now with Hunter in the mix, Im on hot guy overload. *runs and sticks head in freezer*

If you have enjoyed the rest of the Reaper's series, you will not be disappointed. You will wonder why you waited so long to read this. And if you have yet to introduce yourself to the Reapers, then about 1/4 of the way through Reaper's Property you will kick yourself for not starting it sooner... This is one of my favorite series ever. Raw. Real. Action Packed. Alpha Men. Hot Sex. Great writing. Fabulous plots....and Motorcycles... what more does a girl need?
