Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


I was suffocating till the club saved me. I've sent the pain below, buried it and taken control of my life.

Now, I cause the pain. I make people break and beg for their lives, as I decide their fates. It's up to me as the Enforcer to protect my club by any means necessary.

She comes in to my life, like a stiff punch to the gut, making me question everything I once believed.

She belongs to my brother and it goes against everything to take her from him. However, I don't want to just take her. No, I want them both.

Can my club handle it? Can he? Because she already loves me?

My Thoughts:

Avery and 2 Piece are very important to him.  Even though the author has written the story in the first person, the reader also gets to know what all three characters think and feel.  You can tell how much they all care for the other but their relationship doesn’t overtake the story either.  After all, this is an MC book and in order for us to know more about the club the author has to find the perfect balance.

If you’re someone who gets queasy over the sight of blood, just be warned that some scenes are graphic.  I’m not a fan of horror and a particular scene had me wanting to hide behind a pillow.  It also didn’t stop me from reading because I knew the scene would end.  The author does a great job of showing both the romantic and scary sides to being in an MC.  She reminds her readers that not all of them are white knights.  They deal with violence and death almost on a daily basis.  The language used goes toward showing the life they lead.  If you’re a person that doesn’t like a lot of “strong” graphic language then this book may not be for you.  And if the author had toned down the language, so as not to offend, it would change your reading experience and it wouldn’t be as believable. 

Even though I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, I had no trouble following the story line and understanding what this group of men is about.  Our author has two more books coming out in December and I just may have to check them out.  And I’ll also have to check out the other books that she has out now.  If you’ve never experienced the MC romance genre before, you might want to start at the beginning of the author’s series just so you get to experience the club from the beginning. 


Now that we’ve spoken, she’s not afraid of me anymore. She smiles and sometimes giggles when she passes by me. I love hearing her laugh; it brings me peace. I can’t help but chuckle or grin each time.

He’s been my friend for years and has never known that I’m attracted to him. I would do anything for him if he were to ask, but he never does. He thinks I like to watch a woman with him, when in reality, I only like watching him.

Now though…now he has her, and I want them both. I’ve never felt so torn before. I don’t want them for just a fuck. I’ve had them for that. Not him completely, but we’ve been close. I dream of grasping his hair and thrusting into him roughly while I kiss her mouth. I doubt that fantasy will ever come true though.

She catches me watching them and flashes a bright smile, excitedly waving her hand at me. I grin and give her a slight wave back.

Once Upon An Alpha Presents: Wicked For You by Shayla Black; #BlogTour


button synopsis

wicked for you_front mech.inddEver since he rescued her from a dangerous kidnapper, Mystery Mullins has wanted Axel Dillon. When he returned her to her Hollywood father and tabloid life, she was grateful…and a little in love. Mystery wasn’t ready to let Axel go, even after the soldier gently turned her away because, at nineteen, she was too young.

Now, six years later, Mystery is grown, with a flourishing career and a full life—but she’s still stuck on Axel. Disguised, she propositions him in a bar, and the night they spend together is beyond her wildest dreams. Mystery steels herself to walk away—except the sheets are barely cold when her past comes back to haunt her.

Once he realizes Mystery isn’t the stranger he thought, Axel is incensed and intrigued. But when it’s clear she’s in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to become her protector—and her lover—again. And as the two uncover a secret someone is willing to kill for, Axel is determined to claim Mystery’s heart before a murderer silences her for good.
