Jack “Bulldog” Parrish

Crazy: Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.

I was thirteen when I discovered the definition of the word I’d forever be labeled.

Some used it as a figure of speech but for me it was a scar I’d carry through life.

Or so I believed until I was diagnosed a manic depressive.

I’m the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycle Club, a man of power and control.

A man with enemies near and far.

But the truth, my truth, is my biggest enemy— my mind and I live most of my life with no control whatsoever.

I’m just a man who battles his demons, a man destined to live a life full of darkness.

Until her.

She’s the light beckoning me, calling me home, away from the torment.
In a world as dark as the one I live in, sometimes I can’t help but crave Sunshine.

Reina DeCarlo

I was lost, broken and a prisoner of my scars.

A shell of the woman I used to be, who didn’t know the difference between living and merely existing.

Until a stranger found me, fixed and freed me. He breathed life into my soul, reminding me I was a survivor and still had life to live.

My savior is a biker.

A man tortured by his own scars. A man broken like me, maybe even a little lost too.

I want to be his remedy.

I want to heal him.

I want to return the favor and be his savior.

This is our story, a story neither of us knew how to write until we found each other.

Uncontrollable Temptations (Tempted #3) by Janine Infante Bosco 

Jack “Bulldog” Parrish has suffered great tragedy in his life. It’s made him a hard man with demons he has only just learned how to control. But not without cost. He is a man bent on revenge willing to do anything to take down the man who murdered his brother. Even cozying up to the girlfriend his brother left behind. Jack just didn’t plan on being blinded by the sunshine she brings into his life or the craving he has to keep her for himself.
Reina DeCarlo is lost broken woman with physical and emotional scars. She survived the murder of her boyfriend and the fire that almost took her life. Since then she has just been existing hiding from the world. The pain of her loss and the scars she bares are too much for her to live with. Then one day a sexy biker comes into the diner she works at and he becomes a permanent fixture at the counter. Reina finds herself inexplicably drawn to his presence, surprisingly anticipating his return each night. One day they strike up a conversation after weeks of pleasantries. In that moment, Reina’s life becomes a whirlwind of emotions and self-discovery. The unlikely hero becomes the only man who can save her from her past and help her see a bright future.
Will Jack’s vengeance cost them both the happiness they crave or can he save her from the enemies that seek to destroy everything he holds dear.
Jack and Reina’s story is one of fear and loss, heartbreak and finding yourself after tragedy. This is a couple who had an undeniable connection from their first meeting. They needed each other to heal so they could put their individual demons to rest. Jack makes Reina see her worth and looks passed her physical scars, breaking down her emotional barriers. While Reina adds much needed light to Jack’s darkness. He has suffered terrible loss at the hands of his maker his mind. Being an un-diagnosed manic depressive cost Jack his young son and he has never been able to forgive himself. Reina helps him see it wasn’t his fault and he can mourn his son.  

The author does a fantastic job of depicting manic depression. Jack has it under control with his medication but sometimes we get a glimpse of the darkness he buries deep. The scene of Reina pulling Jack back from the edge on his son’s birthday broke my heart and had me sobbing till the last words in the chapter. The sexual chemistry for these two was off the charts, their first sexual encounter hard, fast and steamy. I enjoyed the comradery of Jack and his club brothers, a true bond. I also really loved Jack’s relationship with his daughter Lacey.

Along with the emotional issues this couple faces there is danger lurking as Jack tries to avenge his brother’s death. All of it well written and had me on the edge of my seat anticipating what would happen next.
This is the third book in the series but they can all be read as standalone though I recommend reading all of them. It is a unique series, with flawed characters with realistic problems.

SYNOPSIS: Anthony Bianci
Since I was a kid all I ever wanted to be was a gangster. I wanted to be feared, to be respected, and for everyone to know my name.
And then she came into my life.
I never planned on falling in love with the mob boss’ daughter. She was forbidden but somehow she became mine. She made me crave things I didn’t even know existed and made me forget about the things I thought I wanted. My quest for power faded away and was replaced by my undying love for her.
Until reality bit me in the ass and I was sent to prison for three years, doing time for a crime I didn’t commit.
Now I’m out and she is creating a life for herself, just like I always wanted for her. Only I’m not a part of that life. I won’t ruin her any more than I already have with my poisonous lifestyle. 
No matter how tempted I am.

My father was the Underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me. My life was in shambles until Victor Pastore, one of New York’s most notorious gangsters and my late father’s best friend, recruited me to work for him.

The only beacon of light in my otherwise dark world was the one girl that was off limits to me. The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul.

She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.

My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s nightclubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki. I struggle for people to acknowledge me for the woman I am and not for the men in my life. I’m fighting a losing battle.

He’s wild.
He’s reckless.
He’s hot as hell.

He’s completely unattainable, but oh so tempting.

Despite being successful and having a great job in a pharmaceutical lab, it's not enough for them. They feel it's prime time for her to move on and settle in with a husband. Lara avoids this as much as possible until one night when a thief breaks into her workplace. The moment she sees him, she cooks up the perfect plan. If she can convince her family that this man is her fiance, then that means no more questions or badgering. 

Sebastian Castillo is smart, handsome, and struggling to survive out in the world. He makes a bad decision when he breaks into a lab and is caught suddenly. However, he is saved by Lara and she makes a deal with him. All she asks is that he pretend to be her fiance for a short amount of time. If he can do that much, she won't tell anyone about his true profession. She also plans to teach him how to be the perfect gentleman for her family. He agrees to this and figures that they will not fall in love. After all, she is well off and he is not. There is no way they could ever be attracted to each other. 

At least, that's what they both think...fate just has another plan for them.
