About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years.

Release Blitz! Havoc By Alexis Noelle

As a social worker, I've seen my fair share of broken families, bad relationships, and worlds of regret.
Because of that the last thing, I'll ever do is let down my guard, or open up my heart.
As for men, bring 'em on.
I love a good man in my bed, but I’m not looking for forever or happily ever after. 
That's not my style.
Please me, and leave. 
These are my rules. 
There’s no bending or breaking them. 
Even when he pulls out all the stops,
I'm not budging.
They’re set in stone.
Or should I say, “Rock?”

I'm chiseling away at that hard exterior, one pebble at a time.
I don’t negotiate, I don't share, and 
I sure as hell don’t wait my turn.
Despite her smart mouth and fiery ways,
I still want her. 
But this "friends with benefits" deal of hers is bullshit.
I don't play that way.
At least, I don't plan to anymore.
I will own every ounce of her.
That body.
That mind.
That heart.
It will all be mine.

Havoc is the seventh book in the Deathstalker MC series and like the others was another pretty quick read that I liked just didn’t love.  I love MC romances, I really do so I get excited when I am able to read a new one. 

Havoc had the potential of being really really great, all the elements were there.  Sassy sometimes bitchy female? Check.  Alpha bad ass biker? Check. Drama? Check.  So why is it I didn’t love this one you ask?  Well there are a couple of reasons.  First off there is a very fine line that one can straddle one side being sarcastic and smartassed and the other straight up bitch.  Chrissy for the most part stayed on the bitchy side of that line and after a while I really wanted to slap her at not only the way she treats Rock but the blatant disrespect she showed the clubs at times.  For a social worker she was at times very immature and childish.

Now Rock I wish I could be his old lady the way he treats Chrissy even when she drives him up the wall.  He’s not mean or nasty, but he isn’t a doormat either.  I wish when she pulled something which I won’t say what and ruin it, but I wish he at that point would have put her in her place and made it very clear.  That being said I still loved his character.

My other issue with the book is that there are a lot of plot holes left open and things are extremely rushed.  Had the book been even two chapters longer to wrap up those holes and I wouldn’t have had a complaint.  I honestly have enjoyed this author’s writing in the past so for me to not like this series as much as I had hoped makes me sad.  Will I stop reading the books?  No I won’t because even though I have had some issues I still when I click that last page overall enjoy them.

Alexis Noelle lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with her husband, and three kids. On top a writing career, she is a full-time student and a full-time mom. She loves spending time with her kids, although she has to hide the computer from them when she is writing! She love being active and being outdoors, especially if it involves any kind of shopping.

She has always been passionate about writing. She loves to read romance books and feels like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books she loves to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. Ashley believes that you should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.She also believes that the most important critic is your reader, so she loves to hear from the readers. She want her fans to be open & talk to her about what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would like to see happen.
