SPOILERSThis was a quick read. Basically, the hero Gage falls for Raven at sight Raven also somewhat falls for him at sight. Gage is 32 and Raven is 17 - the age thing did not bug me at all. So Gage tries to stay away from Raven mainly because he wants to wait until she's 18 but finds it impossible because he's so attracted to her. Raven avoids Gage because she doesn't want to turn out like her sister who is a club whore. I liked Raven then I didn't. The banter between Gage and Raven was nice th [...]
I don't know how to rate this one even though it was entertaining as hell it was unrealistic as shit though.Let's start of with our heroine Raven, who is 17 staying with her sister due to their father's passing. Her sister is the MC's club whore, and a full time stripper, everything our 17 year old heroine does not want to be.ever she did catch the presidents eyeThe MC president Gage also known as Reaper is an alltime asshole, the catch them and release them, he has you suck him off with a condo [...]
YouTube Book Trailer: youtube/watch?v=OvPEqOld school ALPHA MALE OH-SO-NAUGHTY 100% proper Biker romance. It's DIRTY, its RAW and it's GRITTY and oh so $EXY.------------------------------Positives:1. No TSTL heroine!! Most of these biker stories feature either a:(1) Used-Up-Down-Trodden type, or (2) Trailer-Trash Hillbilly, or (3) Foul-Mouthed Screaming Banshee, or (4) Submissive Bimbo, or (5) a combination of the aforementioned mentioned.2. Heroine's smart, sassy and doesn't take $hit, hence lo [...]
Fantastic work Alana!! Although I COULD kill you for the cliffhanger.Raven hasn't had the best experience of biker men by watching her sister be a whore for practically the whole Death Dealer's MC, so the last thing she wants is to hook up with a biker. But Gage is different. As president of the MC he has the reputation that would be expected, but there's something different about Raven, her sass and innocence, that makes him want to treat her differently. As much as he physically wants her, he [...]
So I'm trying to catch up on my TBR pile and this is one of those books. However, now that I have finished it I've had to 1-click the next book in the series because this had a doozy of a cliff hanger which then means I have just added to my TBR. Such is the life of a book junkie!Anyhoo, this was the first in a four book series, which I knew from the start but I assumed each one would be about a different couple. The first three books and a novella are about Gage and Raven though so that is just [...]
If you're looking for a fairy tale, boy meets girl, insta-love, I only have eyes for you, break up due to a misunderstanding, work it out and get back together, live happily ever after, story - it's not this book. Yes, it's fiction but let's be real, that stuff only happens in books. That's not the type of story I want to tell. Two things I go for - realism and simplicity. You shouldn't have to reach for a dictionary while reading my books or re-read a paragraph multiple times to understand it.G [...]
This MC book had a lot of elements right off the bat that would make me dislike it. I initially shelved it as uninterested but since it went on sale for 99 cents, I decided to give it a try.Like I said, there were many turn-offs including cheating, insta-love and a whole lot of slut shaming. Granted, we are talking about rough, outlaw bikers who treat their groupies as commodities, so I wasn't expecting sweet talk but the misogyny that permeated almost every single line of dialogue, action, and [...]
I loved, loved, loved this book! The build-up between Raven and Gage is just too much. I can't even wait till the next book to see how this all plays out. Alana Sapphire is definitely on my list of "read all her books" I loved how she showed a true relationship and didn't give us a fantasy that's only plausible in books. Tempted can't come out soon enough for me!
Umm where is the rest?? I want the next book Holy crap this book From the beginning i was pulled in. Raven is a spitfire who wont take no shit from Gage. Gage has never been turned down by a female so when Raven basically puts him in his place he doesn't know what to do. Raven could care less if Gage is the president of the MC. She stands up for herself when it comes to him until he gets to close. As soon as Gage touches her shes putty in his hands. The chemistry between them is off the wall. th [...]
I was cruising and I saw this book and thought I give it a go. OMG i a so surprised I got really into it. Now it ends in a Cliffhanger.h! Why? I need the next book like yesterday. I hate waiting. BTW, I wonder who's Janet?*Poor Chris. It's kinda Messed up how she treating him.
and it leaves me with"I look around frantically for the other rider and almost swallow my tongue as I stare through my window and down the barrel of a gun"why?!!??!
Gage Hunter has always been able to get anything and anyone being the President of The Death Dealers MC. But when he meets Raven Alvarez, he’s not expecting his charm to not work on her—after all, he is the Prez! One thing's for sure, he's going to have to work harder to get her to give him the time and day. Raven Alvarez is just ready to get the heck out of town and away from her evil, slutty sister, Lonnie! What she didn't expect was to catch the attention of the head honcho, Gage but she [...]
This book just really sucked me in finally a kickass heroine!!! With A back bone that! I loved every moment of this book from beginning to end!!Raven was sassy,sweet, caring and feisty and also smart I connected with her character and enjoyed her development from beginning to end! Her connection with Gage, was undeniable they have this spark I am intrigued to learn more about her!!And then thier is sexy yummie hot as "sin" Gage, wow he is A badass biker and total alpha but I feel he is hiding so [...]
This is the first book I have read by this author. I really enjoyed it. Although it was a quick read, the storyline flowed well and the characters were likable.
Wow! Totally awesome read! Can't wait for the next book!
Like this book he's very alpha just what I like NOW onto the next one.
I always enjoy a good biker dude book I have read 2 of Alana's book so far must say that if you are looking for a MMA fighter book check out "Beyond The Cage" if I had to pick a fave between the 2, mine was the cage book but this is a very close 2nd. Some how all these different authors pull it off and write similar but not totally the same (does that make sense? hope so. All these different authors, even though they are writing a similar all about a biker gang book subject they some how tu [...]
Gotta love when a book starts off with a great line. I really like Lonnie's sister! She's great. Raven is the new girl on the block, but wants nothing to do with the MC that Lonnie is a Hellhound for. What happens when she walks away from their President, Gage? Who are Chrissy and Chris? Who is Toni? This is a setup with a very interesting and confusing set of rules and people doing different things. When Gage finds out about Raven's bruise and she tells him she walked into a door, what does he [...]
I think this is one of the best MC books i have read so far. I am not really a fan of these kind of books but once in a while i give one a try. And this one is the best so far , i think. It had me on my edge of my seat from the start. It has everything i love in books. It's funny , sexy , no sad part but that's okay. Not every story has to have a sad part. And this was just one book , there are more so I have work to do ! I started reading it and did not want to put it down until it was finish [...]
This was my first book by Alana and I can honestly say it will not be my last!! Raven is a 17 year old girl waiting for lifeGage is an older man living llife.Together they a FORBIDDEN.Apart they are lonelyThis book was hott!! Now with her being 17 there was NO sex, but, they sure did have some naughty fun! And the chemistry? Off the chains hot! These to just mesh and belong together!! Raven is 17 and living with her sister, there is no love lost between the 2 but there are secrets that I can’t [...]
Even the Reaper has a heartI freaking love this book!!!! Gage is sexy as well. He's a bit rough around the edges. But knows what he wants. But the timing isn't right. But she is unlike any before her. There is a goodness and purity about her that has him addicted. " “When you said you’ve done some things…what did you mean?” She takes a deep breath and rolls her eyes. “If you’re asking me if I’m virgin, then the answer is yes.” F*ck. A virgin. My dick jumps. I can just imagine how [...]
I have to say this is the first time I have read anything by this author and can I just say WOW. This book honestly blew me away. I'm not even sure I can come up with the right words for a review. I'm not sure what I expected when I went into reading this book. But it definitely wasn't what I got while reading, again in a good way. I will give you a warning though this book ends on a cliffhanger. So if you don't like cliffhangers you may want to wait to read until the next one comes out!!!! I lo [...]
Gifted an advanced copy for an honest review!Um--I'd like more please! This is my first MC read. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect so I went into it with an open mind. Now that I'm finished, I'm trying desperately to quiet that part of me that wants to throw a temper tantrum because I can't read book two yet. (But I promise you, I will be reading book two!)Anyway--about Forbidden. It took me a little bit to really sink my teeth into it. I felt like I had been dropped into a story that was al [...]
I read this book start to finish and I didn't want it to end. Yes, it ends on a cliffhanger, but you're so sucked in by the end, you know you'll be counting down the days until Tempted is ready. This is the first book of Alana's that I have read, but it definitely will not be the last!!! Raven and Gage have undeniable sexual attraction for one another, but Gage is fighting it because Raven is only 17!! Raven doesn't want to have anything to do with the smoking hot President of the Death Dealers. [...]
Wow, that was hard to put down. I really hope the second book will be out soon, because the ending was so abrupt for me.A sizzling motorcycle gang romance with a sexy latina and a real bad boy/man :)♥Story:Raven's sister is quite the opposite of her, a stripper and seems to be the slut of the motorcycle club. So when Gage, the president of this biker club, makes obvious that he is attracted to Raven, his attempts aren't very welcome, but he's able to throw her off balance. Gage is not a man yo [...]
My Review for Forbidden by Alana Sapphire:My Rating 4.5 StarsI’m an avid MC reader and therefore read many books of this genre. I can however say that Alana Sapphire has knocked it right out of the park. I loved this book, and really need the second ASAP! This does end in with a WTF cliffhanger, but I’m telling you it was so worth it!The story of older man and younger woman was panty dropping hot! Raven and Gage set the pages on fire, their chemistry is off the charts. Raven is a strong will [...]
So not wanting to follower her slutty sister's foot steps as a biker whore, Raven goes to the MC picnic with her sister. If you don't want to be like her, you don't put yourself in this situation. There she meets the prez of the MC, Reaper/Gage. He wants her, but she's having none of it. Good for her! Raven and her sister Lonnie have a troubled relationship and Raven can't wait to turn 18 and move out. Yes 18. Gage is bidding his time to get in her pants, he's 32. If I didn't focus on the age di [...]
This was my first read by Alana Sapphire, and I was very impressed. Different from most MC books, this isn’t guy and girl meet and hook up. Nope this has some twists and turns that you don’t get normally. Gage sees Raven and just knows she is different and someone he needs to meet; well basically he wants to know if she belongs to someone else. Raven doesn’t want anything to do with Gage, or even the MC. I really liked it, the different problems that had to be overcome so to speak. I am no [...]
I was given an ARC for an honest review4 out 5 stars.This is my first book I have read from Alana Sapphire. I love MC books and I was excited when I saw I had this one waiting for me. Forbidden was really well written and a great story. The only thing I had an issue with was Ravens age. I liked the character I just wish there was more to their stories. Raven was a likable character and one that I could follow along with. When you first meet her she wants nothing to do with Gage and the MC world. [...]
I received an copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion…….*****5 AMAZING STARS*****Man this book sucks you in from the first page. I LOVED it and CAN NOT WAIT until the next book comes out!!!!Yeah it's a cliffhanger BUT it is worth the read now!! (This coming from the girl who severally dislikes cliffys)Raven is the sister of a club whore and want to be nothing like her. This means no bikers! She just wants to save up enough to get away from her sister and have a good life hopefull [...]
