Release Blitz! Link'd Up By Harley Stone

President Tyler “Link” Lincoln of the Dead Presidents MC, runs a club dedicated to helping military vets readjust to society. When his sergeant at arms is arrested for the attempted murder of a prominent Seattle figure, Link’s search for a lawyer brave enough to fight for justice leads him to an alluring defense attorney with a bleeding heart and a steel backbone. 
This isn’t the first time Emily Stafford’s commitment to defending the falsely accused has put her in harm’s way. Smart, cautious, and independent, she knows how to defend herself. At least, she did until she joined forces with one sexy, overbearing, tattooed MC president.
Flames run hot as Link and Emily seek shelter in the club’s converted fire station, working against the clock to uncover the truth and save a somewhat innocent man. 

I am well aware that I will most likely be in the minority with this review but it is what it is. I had high hopes when I started Link’d Up, I was in search of a new MC romance series to discover and love and I hoped that this one would be the answer.  Let me state that I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. The potential was there to be something great but it just missed the mark.

I have no problems with strong will heroines if they are strong willed but smart, Emily to me, came across as strong willed but over confident and off putting at times. Her character is what took this book from being something that could have been great and made it mediocre. I give plenty of chances for a character to win me over, hell I gave Emily extra chances but nope just couldn’t move past her. If you are going to call yourself a queen, then act like it, not a spoiled little princess who throws a tantrum every time she gets upset. Now Link, well his character I liked but I wish he could have compensated more for my dislike of Emily. I know he liked Emily’s feisty side but while he was an alpha male for sure, I don’t think he balanced enough with Emily.

I wish I would have enjoyed this one more, and like I said it had the potential to be a great book, but sometimes all it takes is one character to ruin the potential of a book, and sadly for me that is what happened with Link’d Up. As always form your own opinion because what didn’t work for me could work for you.

Harley Stone writes mafia romance and funny-as-shit romantic fiction. When she's not writing, she's busy living out her real adventure in southwest Washington with her husband and their five boys.
