We're from two different worlds, but in her arms, I'm home.

Plum
Life didn't give me a silver spoon. It gave me tetanus. When Adam Wade walks into my club, I know I'm in trouble. His money I can handle. But sweet words, gentle hands? I don't know what to do with that. Eventually, he's gonna wise up and walk away. If I let him in, what'll be left of me when he goes?

Adam
I'm the adopted son of the man who owns the city. I was born into nothing, and I've earned my seat at the table. But at night, when I can't sleep, I'm haunted by the pieces of myself I've disowned to make it this far.
I don't know why Plum caught my eye, but I can't look away. Maybe it's her brave face, her fight, her quirks. I'm obsessed, all-in with my eyes screwed shut. 
Then life throws a harsh light on our choices. I'm forced to face the ugly truth of what she's done to survive--and what I'll have to sacrifice to be with her.
Plum's a fighter, but would she fight for us? And if I give up everything for her, who will I be?

Plum is a 60,000-word "opposites attract" romance set in the Steel Bones Motorcycle Club world. It takes place at the same time as Nickel's Story. This novel is intended for adult readers (18+) due to strong language, violence, triggers, and explicit intimate scenes.
Standalone. HEA.










“I’m not going to hurt you.” I haven’t moved from her side. We’re both standing next to her chair, not touching, but close.
“Good.”
That’s not enough for me. I cup her cheek, raise her face so she’s looking up at me. “I know you’re tough as nails. I know you can take me.”
She snorts. “Damn straight.”
“But I’m never going to do anything you don’t want me to.”
She moves her gaze over my shoulder. Now she’s taking in the view of the skyline. She doesn’t believe me.
“I’m never going to hurt you or take anything from you.” I don’t know why I need her to believe me. Or at least acknowledge what I’m saying. My temper flares.
I move my hands to her shoulders. “Will you just say something?”
She’s silent for a long minute. “I don’t believe you,” she finally says.
She’s meeting my eyes now. Fiercely stubborn, all her fight showing.
“I know.” It’s enough for now. It’s going to have to be.

Derek

The sound of the gavel crashing down, 
Has my life flashing before my eyes. 

Learning to play ball. 
Falling in love, 
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning. 

Everything I ever wanted... Until I struck out

The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of, 
Took it all away. 
I'd do anything for a second chance, 
Even throw the perfect pitch. 

Jillian 

A signature on a piece of paper...
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away. 

It broke my heart to file the papers. 
Gutted me to sign them. 
But this isn't the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.

Life goes on.
People can change. 
Now he wants a second chance. 
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?

Wow, what an amazing story. I couldn't put it down once started. I had to know how it turned out. I was cheering for Derek all the way.

I loved Derek and Jillian together, they have loads of history together. And they are just perfect for each other.

Samantha Lind did amazing job on this book.

Bullet by Nikki Sparxx


Title: Bullet
Series: Suicide Kings MC
Author: Nikki Sparxx
Genre: Contemporary MC Romance
Release Date: February 18, 2020
Cover Design: Melissa Gill













When Dixyn Knox left her home with dreams of seeing her name in lights in LA, she never thought she'd go back. Wanting to get away from the motorcycle club life she'd been born into, she left without a backward glance. But four years later, after failing to make a name for herself and getting mixed up with the wrong crowd, her grandfather passes away, and she decides to return to her roots. What she doesn't expect is to get involved with Ford Lawson, her father's biggest rival and president of the Suicide Kings MC. 
Sixteen years older, he is everything Dixyn swore she didn't want; outlaw biker, cocky as hell, with a way of getting under her skin. He pushes all her buttons, but for some reason, she can't get enough of him. They both know what they're doing is wrong, but neither are able to stop, caught up in the rush of their forbidden romance.
But when Dixyn's troubled past catches up to her, their relationship is the least of their worries.




“Well, I'll be damned,” a deep, rough voice sounded next to me.
I turned and stiffened. The person in front of me was not who I expected to see.
My dad's biggest rival—Ford Lawson.
He smirked. The small gesture made heat coil in my abdomen. “You lost, kitten? This bar, here, ain't your territory.”
I arched a brow. “My territory?”
He took a seat in the barstool next to mine, then swiveled to face me. “Yeah. This bar is Suicide King territory. No Forsaken welcome.”
I rolled my eyes. “I'm not Forsaken.”
“Your daddy is. That makes you guilty by association.”
I took a sip of my drink, annoyed by the conversation. “Look, I don't give a shit about your club politics.” Locking eyes with him, I continued, “I didn't know this was your bar; I don't care that this is your bar. I've had a pretty shitty week with my grandpa dying and all, and I just needed a drink. So if you could just leave me alone, that would be fucking great.”
He held my gaze for several seconds, amusement playing in his eyes before he extended a hand to me. “Ford Lawson.”
I eyed him before shaking his hand. “I know who you are.”
He cocked a brow, an amused smile lifting his lips. “Oh, do you now?”
I swallowed the lump in my throat. He was wearing a fitted black muscle shirt under his cut. He had several patches; one read “President” and another read “Bullet.” Their logo, the suicide king from a deck of cards with motorcycle wheels behind it, sat on the opposite side. “Yeah. My brother already warned me about you.”
He crossed his broad, tattooed arms over his chest with a chuckle. “They'd be pretty pissed if they found out you were here.”
I shrugged, taking another sip of my drink. “I'm a grown woman. I don't answer to them.”
“Well, I won't tell if you won't.”
I didn't miss the hidden innuendo in his words. A thrill rushed through me at the thought of Ford being a dirty little secret.
That was a bad idea; a very, very bad idea.
I downed the rest of my drink, then got up. “Sorry for the intrusion.”
As I turned to leave, Ford grabbed my arm. “Wait.”
I tried to pull away, my defenses kicking in, but his grip was firm. “Let me go,” I seethed, both angry and turned on at the same time. Thoughts of his rough hands running all over my body flashed in my mind.
“Didn't mean to overstep.” He let go of my arm. “Let me buy you a drink to make up for my lack of manners.”
“That's not necessary. Let's just forget this ever happened.”
I turned to leave again, and he called out after me. “Aw, c'mon, kitten, don't you want a little taste of the forbidden? I know I do.”
That stopped me in my tracks. Still, I didn't turn around, knowing how disastrous the idea was.
“Plus, it would piss your daddy off.”
I couldn't help but smile.
I exhaled a weighted breath as I turned back around. That sexy smirk curved his lips, making my sex clench. I hadn't been fucked properly in months. Matteo took two seconds to get off and left me unsatisfied.
“Fine, but if you start any shit with my family, you will regret it.”
He held his hands up in surrender, an amused smirk on his lips. “Ooh, the kitten has claws. Is that a threat?”
I shrugged. “Maybe.”
He laughed. “Let's have a drink,” he suggested, gesturing to my vacated barstool next to him. “Whatever you want is on me.”
That definitely was a bad idea. But I didn't want to go home yet, and something about Ford drew me in. His roguish smile and intense eyes did things to my insides that I'd never felt before. He was forbidden, off-limits, and that made me want him even more.
One drink couldn't hurt. Right?

I really liked this book. I loved the characters, and the camaraderie and loyalty. I couldn't put it down once started.

I loved Dixyn and Bullet together, they may of started out as a fling but I could tell they could be more. Fighting feelings.
