My Review: So I have sat down and tried writing a review for this book about 3 or 4 times. Each time writing a sentence or 2 and then deleting it.Have you ever read a book that was so deliriously good you couldn't find the words to do it justice. This is that kind of book/series and that is what it did to me. I mean it was so beyond awesome, amazing, epic you would literally have to roll all those crazy magnificent words into one to get the perfect word. This series and this book are hands down my favorite MC series to date. I just can't seem to get enough of the Devil's Dust and I want more. If you haven't picked up these books you are missing out on one of the most amazing reads this year.

Title: Ties that Bind Author: Neeny Boucher Series: Complicated Love (Book #2)

Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3

Ties That Bind Cover

Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3


  *Recommended for audiences over the age of 18* Forced to return to her hated hometown to work, Christina Martin, lawyer and ex resident bad girl, finds herself questioning her life choices. Reunited with her former husband, Nicholas Riley, their tenuous and complicated relationship is tested when secrets from the past and present are revealed. Riley, a man with explosive secrets and penchant for psychological games, faces the dilemma of keeping the woman he loves through lies by omission or potentially losing her with the truth. This isn’t just their second chance for happiness, it’s their last chance and there may be some things that love can’t conquer at all. Equal parts helped and hindered by a colorful cast of supporting characters, ‘Ties that Bind’, Book Two in the Complicated Love Series, continues the dysfunctional relationship of Riley and Dina introduced in ‘Lost in Flight’. Warning: This book is not about bondage. I have nothing against books about bondage. Heck, I’ve been known to read a few works myself, but it’s just this book isn’t one of them. Unless, of course, you’re referring to the tangible and intangible bonds of human relationships, ties that bind and ties that can be broken. Then, this book is definitely about that. ‘Ties that Bind’ is not a standalone and forms part of a series. It is highly recommended that you read Book One, ‘Lost in Flight’ before this one. Also, this series is full of quirky, socially awkward, and badly behaved characters, underpinned with dark humor. It is not a traditional romance and there is no guarantee of happy ever afters. 51289-add-to-goodreads-button

My monsters are loose and I don’t think I can get them back under control. I’m not sure if I want to. If I were you, I’d run.” Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3   Review     Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3 Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3   Author Bio   Neeny Boucher   Neeny Boucher is a nom de plume because my real name sounds like a 19th Century suffragette. Originally, I'm from New Zealand and am a long-time supporter of the All Blacks. Currently, I am living in Europe and a trailing spouse, following my husband all over the world for his work. This not only gives me the opportunity to write, but also, experience the world and indulge in one of my favourite past-times: people watching. My own employment history is varied and ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous. All of those experiences and encounters, however, have allowed me to collect amazing stories, which now form the basis of my writings. I have always loved the weird, the outcast and those on the margins of society because they see the world in a different way. These are the people my characters are based around. I have a BA Hons (English and Pacific Studies) and a PhD in Sociology/Indigenous Studies. Presently, I am working on the Complicated Love Series. Book One, Lost in Flight, was released in 2013. Book Two, Ties that Bind, is scheduled for release in 2014.

My Review: I give this book 4 big hearts. This book is a hauntingly beautiful love story that takes you on this ride that I can't even explain. I really enjoyed this book and I didn't even read book one cause I had know idea there was one. I was a little lost in the beginning but the book does come full circle. This book truly is a love story of epicness. It's a story of how even when you hurt the ones you love I a mean really hurt them and break them down they can still love you because your the other half of their soul. Christina has been put through the ringer by Riley. Their were points that I wanted to shut the book put it down and walk away because I couldn't even take his shit anymore but I forged on. I'm so glad I did because you learn some of why Riley does what he does and he finally has to come to terms with it. He doesn't totally blame what he does with what is going on with him. They have this strange but full support group including family and friends. If you do one thing this year go pick up this series. You will need tissues and drink of choice to make it through but it was soooooooooooooooo worth the emotions you will go through.

Lost in France (Firebird Trilogy #2)



Lost. The one thing I’ve wanted above everything else was taken from me in one night. My dreams were shattered forever because of one irreversible mistake. 

There was nothing I could do about it. 

I’d lost everything.

So I did what I always do. I ran. 

To another continent. 
To France. 
To start over.
God knows, I needed a new beginning; a new job, a new life. 
To find what I truly wanted…needed…craved. 
A man of my own. 

My French man found me. He was perfect. 

Or…was he. Alain du Bois had a secret. One that could destroy us before we even had a chance to find love.

And why was my new boss, Maxwell Grant, the arrogant and demanding CEO of Grant Global, fixated on me?

Would I find myself in France? 

Would I get what I desperately wanted? 

Or was I jumping from one hotter than hell fire into another?
My 4 star review: Jani Kay did an amazing job with this series. I loved the way it flowed and kept you wanting more. This was a great sequel to the series and I am sure this is a great segway in to the third book in the trilogy. We met some new characters in book 2. Like the lovable hottie doctor Kurt and Rebecca's lovely sisters. I am hoping to get more of them in the third book. I love that this book picked up were book one left us with Rebecca in Germany. This is where she meets Kurt and is trying to mend her heart from what Alain had done to it. Rebecca takes quite a journey in this book and I was happy to go along for the ride. She comes in to her own and finally goes after what she wants. I loved the twist with the love triangle because I truly didn't see the ending happening the way it did. It was a great surprise to finally see a book end on the unexpected. I'm just glad she got her head out of her ass and went after hottie McHotterson. The passion the 2 of them shared was off the charts. Yes she may have had hot love with Alain but when she finally let her guard down and decided that Max was the one. You just couldn't help but scream and yell thank god. Trust me in the first book I could have strangled him for getting in the way of love but after reading No Regret I love him for all his arrogants and really fighting for what he wanted. There are so many other things that happened in this book and I can sit here all day and talk about it. Go one click today and get ready for some hot and steamy mixed with a little turmoil.


Jani loves ice cream, the color red and the ocean. She also loves sexy alpha males with a soft center and a big heart. Her heroines are real women, sassy and smart and they stand up for what they believe in, even if it sometimes takes them a while to work it all out.

When Jani isn't writing, she can be found reading, hanging out with her family and friends, or off on some travel adventure to discover new places and cultures. Jani also loves sitting in a corner at a coffee shop, with her laptop, spying covertly on the behavior of the people around her. You just never know when you may land up in one of her novels - lol.

Fortunately Jani's partner in crime supports her living in alternative worlds and talking to characters that live in her imagination. He hasn't committed her to the looney bin - yet. Jani's two kids know that they are loved and cherished by their crazy mother who is now out to exact revenge for all the embarrassment they caused her when they were little - by her writing steamy sexy novels and publishing them.

Jani hopes you will enjoy reading about the characters that live in her head and insist on being brought to life through her novels.

Redemption by Alla Kar Cover Reveal

His second chance may cost him his sweetest addiction …

The truth about NEVEAH’S cheating fiancĂ©e hit hard—but not as hard as her right hook to his jaw. After ridding herself of him she travels back home to Huntsville, Texas to her father and his boxing gym where she grew up. When she finds a beaten man in the woods beside her home, her entire life changes and things get—complicated.

Ex-con RAGE only wants two things—for the man that set him up to release his sister, and for him to burn in Hell where he belongs. After being released from prison, he heads straight to the man that put him there, only to be beaten and tossed in the woods for dead. When he’s found by the most beautiful girl he’s ever met, he knows he’ll have a chance to rescue his sister even though she doesn’t realize she needs saving.

Neveah and her father, nurse Rage back to heath, offer him a job at their gym and quickly find out that he’s amazing in the ring. Without them knowing who he is, he knows he’s been given a second chance to live his life. The only condition is that he has to stay away from Neveah, which is a promise he soon realizes is hard to keep. The feisty southern beauty normally gets what she wants, and Rage wants to give her everything.

With the truth lurking in the shadows, Rage must decide if he’s sweetest addiction is worth giving up his second chance.

“Do I have to?”

My dad glanced over the rim of his glass of orange juice. “Yes. I’m late to open the gym and the guy needs to eat. Just bring it out to him, Neveah.”

Dammit it all to hell. I bit the inside of my lip and pulled at my bright pink yoga pants. He’d seen me peeking in his window the night before and I did not want to relive that embarrassment. I had hoped we could avoid each other until he was gone. 

“Whatever,” I mumbled.

Dad sighed, and ran his fingers through his hair. “You’ve got to get used to him because I offered him a job at the gym when he gets better.”

“You what!” I yelled.

Dad frowned. “I thought you were all for helping this kid out? You’re the one that didn’t want to take him to the hospital because he asked you not to.”

Yes, I had. That was before he’d caught me watching him like a creepy sixteen-year-old. “Okay, Dad. I’ll freaking do it.”

Dad gave me a bored look. “Are we going to do the whole teenage whiny bullshit again? I thought you’d outgrown that.”

I rolled my eyes, then eyed the bowl of soup for Declan. “Aren't you late?”

He smiled. “I’ll see you later. Call your Aunt Shelly today.”

“I will.”

Dad kissed my forehead, grabbed his things, and then hurried out the front door. The silence that fell over me was the loudest silence I’d ever heard. All I could think about was his food getting cold. God. I palmed my forehead and sighed.

Better get it over with.

Lucy and I walked the short distance to the guest house but I stopped hesitatingly in front of the door . The soup was burning my hand but my feet were still stuck to the porch. I pressed my ear to the door but I couldn’t hear anything.

Lucy whined while pawing the door. I hurried and knocked before she decided to start barking like the night before. No need to get caught again. How humiliating. 

“Come in.”

The door felt heavy against my palm but I used everything I had and shoved it opened. Greedily, my eyes searched the room and I found him lying in his bed, the covers thrown on the floor, in nothing but a pair of my dad’s red Underarmour underwear which looked completely different on him than my dad.

Shit. Shit. Shit. He’s looking at me.

“Oh,” he said, like he was shocked to see me. But he didn't grab for the covers, he stayed sprawled in front of me, his thick thighs wide and his chest sweaty from the heat. I was hardly winning the battle with my eyes not to look at the bulge lying between those said thick thighs. “I thought you were Wes.”

My fingers tightened around the bowl and my gaze traveled down the ridges of his taut stomach.

“Stop that,” he growled.

I jumped backwards and hit my head against the wooden door with a thump. “Stop what?”

The way his eyes swept me from head to toe had my body burning from the inside out. “Stop staring at me.”

Embarrassment flooded me. There he was with bandages wrapped around his bruised body and I was ogling him like a piece of meat. And it was worth every second. “I’m not.”

His dark brows shot up to his hairline. “Oh really? It looked like it to me.”

Lifting my chin, I gave him a smartass smile. “Well, I guess you need to go to the eye doctor. I was just bringing you your breakfast because my dad asked me to.”

Those dark eyes watched me carefully until I squirmed in the doorway. “Well, are you going to bring it here or do you want me to get up and get it?”

I gritted my teeth before taking a leisurely step inside. Lucy bounded forward and took liberty on herself to plant her front paws on the side of his bed, begging for attention. No shame in her game. 

Declan’s gaze cast down to Lucy. “Hi girl. You found me the other day, didn’t you?” he cooed, running his fingers against her head.

Something wicked swelled between my legs. I need to get out of here. But—once again—my feet were taking a permanent residence on the floor. Lucy’s tail wagged in a steady rhythm as he cooed and brushed his knuckles against her which only drew attention to how massive his forearm was.

God, I need to get out of here—like yesterday.

Stepping forward, I offered him the bowl of soup. Dragging his eyes from Lucy to my own, he carefully eyed the bowl and then let his gaze travel back up my breasts to my eyes. I’d only been this close to him when he was covered in mud and blood. Now that his face was cleaned, I could see every flawlessly imperfect thing about him. The fresh scar on his lip only intensified how full they were. A five o’clock shadow was light on his strong jaw.

And his fucking eyes. Things were stirring inside of me that I had never felt in my short twenty-one years on this planet. He reached forward, the tips of his fingers skimmed down the path of my own until he palmed the bowl and brought it down to his chest.

His brows furrowed, his hand jerked outward, his fingers encircled my wrist before flipping my palm upward. Shock raced through me, but I didn't snatch away as he examined my reddened palm from the bowl. “It’s fucking hot. Why didn't you put it down?”

Oh God. What was I supposed to say? I’m so incredibly attracted to you that I couldn't risk getting too close to you? “It’s not hot.”

God, how lame can I be? I dropped my gaze to the wooden floor.

His fingers tightened around my wrist, he jerked me closer to him, and my body pulsed from the bluntness of it. “Stop lookin’ away from me, it’s annoying.”

I gasped and jerked away from him. “I’ll look wherever I want to look, thank you.”

He looked down to his abs, and my sex clenched tighter. “Obviously.” He meet my gaze. “I saw you earlier, and last night.”

Damn it all to hell! The heavy pressure in my ears doubled from embarrassment. “I wasn't lookin’ at you last night. I was checking on you.”

The leg closest to me dropped to the floor with a loud plop but he didn't move. “I saw you checking—Angel.”

Shit. Fuck. Shit fuck! “You’re mistaken but I’ll let it go.”

A wide grin blessed his face, and he could have been the fault Adam wavered with Eve. The seductive evil that was so fucking beautiful that you didn't care the consequence. “You like to be in control, don’t you?”

What? I nearly gasped but bit my tongue to keep my mouth at bay. Heath had always complained that I had to be in control of every situation but in reality he was just weak. “No, I don't” I snapped.

“You do,” he said back. “But that’s okay because I’m the master of control, and it’s tough shit for whoever doesn't like it.”

Something about the tone of his voice told me that he was probably telling the truth. And by the look of him he’d have another woman underneath him in two seconds to fill that void the disappoint left behind.

“I’m not falling for your tricks,” I said. “I know you want me to fall for this bad boy bullshit but asshole really isn't my style.”

Oh shit. If looks could kill. His jaw twitched and he sat his soup to the side. “I’m not trying to seduce you, Angel. I've already got you. I’m trying to make sure you don’t fall for my bullshit, and into this fucking bed because it doesn’t need to happen. It won’t happen.”

I stepped back like I’d been slapped. I was sure he'd liked what he'd seen when I walked in here. “Fuck you. I wouldn't fuck you if you were the last fuck on earth.”

The bed squeaked, his arm snaked around my waist and he drug me closer to him. Mouth parted, eyes on my lips, his minty breath heaved against me. “Take it back,” he whispered against my mouth.

Warmth settled between my legs, and I went liquid. If he hadn't pulled me against his chest I would have been a puddle of goo on the floor. My fingers sprawled against his tanned skin and my breasts brushed against his own. “Let me go,” I whispered, aware of how his eyes hadn’t strayed from my opened mouth. 

Wetness puddled in my panties as he brushed the pad of his thumb against my lower lip. “I wish I didn't have to.”

But he released my waist and allowed me to stand which didn't go very well. I stumbled to the left, and caught myself on the small nightstand at the same time he reached forward to catch me. “Careful,” he whispered, and I didn't have to look to hear the smugness in his voice.

“I’m leaving,” I whispered helplessly. “Eat your food. I’ll be home today if you need anything.”

“And how do you expect me to get you?”

“Oh,” I said, meeting his gaze. “Here is your phone.” I dug it out of my butt pocket and handed it to him.

He kept eye contact but reached for his phone. “You looked through it.”

I swallowed, too stubborn to lie. “Yes.”

“And what did you find?”

I looked over at Lucy who had her head rested on her front two paws, watching us. “Nothing. I found nothing.”

He nodded. “Good.”

We watched each other for several seconds, the obvious he’s bad news weighing between us. I needed to leave because the small voice in the back of my head was telling me to ask questions that I was sure I didn't want to know the answers to.

“Call me if you need anything.”

He nodded once, and I felt his eyes on me as I swayed my hips, my insides practically begging me to stay. Once I shut the door, I used it as a crutch because my wobbly legs were threatening to betray me. God he was tense. I was tense. I was turned on beyond oblivion, a feel of desperation flooded me with need.

This isn’t going to be good.
