First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels
Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward--full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That's when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.
Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She's been terrified of him ever since, but she's even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She's living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there's only one man she can trust to go with her--the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.
Puck will help her again, but this time it'll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, or the calm after a big storm, when the world seems new and fresh, when one can feel the rightness of the world falling into place, I forget. This is my favorite time; this is the point between old and new and the fresh and used. It is that point when I can pretend that I too am fresh and new. I can stand in the rain and shower off the old me, shedding it like the skin of a snake; with it goes the terrors and pain and I am left fresh. For a time. Then, I look down and see the scars, feel the terror and smell the fear. Yes, fear has a smell, a very distinct, very real smell. I am sure it is a different smell for everyone; for me it is lemons, coppery lemons. The fear I smell the most though is one that brings most peace. And the sounds, oh the sounds that come screaming back into my head. They don’t leave. They never leave. They come screaming back, fast and furious, like a Japanese bullet train. Always on course, always on time. They crush me with the weight of the fear they bring with them. I have to escape. I need release; it is why I run in these early hours, in the rain and storms that other people stay out of.
I dress in my running gear and open myself up to the cathartic release I get from lacing up my shoes and I step out the door. I know I can’t out run my past. I know I cannot escape the fears and pain, or erase the scars, but I can forget for a time. I can find that release. With each pounding footstep I feel calmer. I feel the terrors of my dreams fade and I can see the new day rising. What was done was done, I cannot change that. I am a new person now. New face, new name, new life. The run clears my mind and as I reach the end, the clearing of Aspens, with leaves now turning, looking golden and on fire in the early morning sun; I feel renewed. I love these mountains and their glorious, ever-changing beauty. The trees can be at once skeletal remains and yet grow, not giving in to nature, to become the beautiful fireballs before me, an amazing creation I am currently standing in awe of. Proof that life goes on; it continues. The world turns, the sun rises and sets and no one will remember what once was. Out of breath and energy, I lay down in the meadow and watch the sun continue its rise, preparing myself for another day. A day spent hiding myself yet being the most free I have ever been at the same time. Today, I start again...

Sweetest Temptations (Blue Collar #1) by J.C. Valentine
Abby is determined to make her new bakery shop a success. She is following her dreams and has everything she could ever want. Her sister thinks her life is lacking in the love department so she uses weekly dinners to try to set Abby up with a string of losers, men that Abby just does not feel a connection. Then she meets Kennedy, a hunky firefighter with a killer smile and captivating charm that makes her weak in the knees. One of her sister’s set ups has finally paid off. The more she tries to stop herself from falling for him the faster she seems to be going down.
When a series of mysterious incidents begin to occur in Abby’s life, Kennedy shows his alpha male protective side and will do anything to keep her safe. It is clear someone is out to get her and ruin her business. Kennedy vows to find out who is trying to hurt the girl he can’t stop wanting to be with, he will protect her no matter how stubborn she tries to be.
The title of this book describes it perfectly for me. Yes, it is the sweetest at times, when Kennedy gets down on one knee to ask Abby to be his girlfriend I just about died. Kennedy is also very tempting like a devilish dessert you shouldn’t eat. From the start I could feel the sexual tension between these two. However, it was not about just lust and desire, it felt like a connection that would mean so much more. I loved Abby she was quirky and fun like a girl I would be friends with I completely got her from the first chapter. Her relationship with her sister was so real. Her friendships with Hope and Dex are great; they were fun characters to read. Kennedy’s firefighter friends were totally swoon worthy. The sex scenes were steamy and sensual. All in all it was a very enjoyable story, I could not put it down. I loved J.C. Valentine’s, Knockout and Tapout, Sweetest Temptations does not disappoint. I am hoping that Jack and Hope’s story is next there was a hint of these two getting together. Highly recommend.
Received ARC from author in exchange for an honest review.
