Bleeding Love (Hope Town Series, Book #2)

BXTCHES Gotta Warn: Okay, I’m pretty sure you know what I’m going to say here. You know, the usual, “make sure you read the first book (Unexpected Fate) in this series before you take on this one, blah, blah, blah” and it’s true you should, but this time it’s not because Bleeding Love can’t really be read as a stand alone, because I think it can be. However, I think you should go in order for a couple of reasons: #1: This isn’t really the 2nd book of the series, it’s more like the 8th book of the series, because you really should start with the Corps Security Series first and only because it lays down the foundation for the Hope Town series (which features the offspring of the Corps Security hotties). #2: There are a lot of characters happening in these books, so much so that it would help to feature a family tree of sorts (I will try to find one and post at the end of review). #3: The most important reason, you will be doing your imagination a disservice by not reading these books, they are fantastic! So, it’s time for some Megan and Liam.

This book will be told through Megan and Liam’s POV. For a bit of a refresher, Liam Beckett is the son of Dee and Beck (book #3 in the Corps Security Series)

If you have read Unexpected Fate (book #1), then you already somewhat know Megan. She is the woman whose husband, Jack, was killed in action and who Cohen was reaching out to. So, this story will pick up at Dani and Cohen’s wedding reception, where Megan finds herself in the throws of passion with one very hot, Liam Beckett. Liam has actually had his eyes on Megan for a while, really ever since “the group” took her and her daughter, Molly, in. He just so happened to seize the opportunity presented to him at the wedding and took every advantage of it. Megan is having a really hard time coming to terms with the fact that her husband Jack, is never coming home. Now, there is certainly an underlying story here, one of which I’m not going to go into too much detail with, but I can let you in on a little.

Megan and Jack grew up living next door to one another and not in great circumstances. They were best friends, all throughout their childhood and going into teenage”hood”. Jack was going to find his way out of their dire situation through football. A scholarship was going to get him out of their small town, but when Megan finds herself pregnant, he does the right thing and steps up. They get married and he enlists to serve his country, never regretting his decision. Now, you can only imagine the type of guilt that Megan lives with, knowing that Jack gave up his dreams for her and Molly. Him dying has forced Megan to stop feeling and Liam is going to do whatever it takes to make her feel again. 

Liam has always desired the kind of love he grew up watching displayed with his parents. He knew that when he came across that special one, he would just know. And he knows that he has found that in Megan,  unfortunately, Megan is going to be a little slow coming to that realization. He thought that maybe he somewhat convinced her when he gave her the best sex of both of their lives, but soon realized that he was going to have to put in a bit more work. Something scary is going to happen to Megan, and while very unfortunate, it’s almost the catalyst that forces Liam to really stake his claim. 

I gotta say, you are going to love Liam Beckett here. He could quite be the epitome of perfection. He and Dani (Axel and Izzy’s daughter) are best friends and together create a “Feeling Alive” list. A check list of sorts that Liam uses to just make Megan feel again. Obviously she does come around and it is a beautiful thing to watch unfold.

We are going to get some of the Corps Security (new and old) in this book and it is wonderful to revisit them, but I think the star of the “cast of support” goes to Molly. She is the 5 year old daughter of Megan and really steals the scenes that she is in. What I love here is how welcome the crew was to Megan and Molly. Almost immediately, Dee and Beck transformed into grandparents and even before that, she was stealing the hearts of Axel, Izzy, and Nate. So, Harper Sloan did a great job developing another character that I can’t wait to see more from. The one surprise for me was Nate. I really enjoyed reading him. He was so funny and so caring and he is the offspring of Axel, so you know he is super hot. But I know that you are going to fall in love with the way he cares for Molly.

Okay, I know that I’ve mentioned it before, but Holy Hot Libido, Harper Sloan wrote some pretty potent sexual greatness in this book. First, the tension that she is able to build between Liam and Megan will have you reading just to get to the actual stuff. I prefer a dirty mouth on the Alpha’s that I read and she did not disappoint with Liam. In fact, I think I could’ve just read the dirty stuff that came out of his mouth without the sex and been satisfied. Just make sure no one is reading over your shoulder for this one.

Oh boy, this one is pretty emotional. In fact, I will warn you to be careful where you are at when reading certain scenes. There is one in particular that will most likely bring tears. I just so happened to be at volleyball for my daughter, WHICH IS IN A PUBLIC PLACE, when I read that scene and it wasn’t until I started to tear up that I realized what a bad idea that was. 

I’m not sure how Harper Sloan does it and honestly I don’t really care as long as she keeps doing it. She makes it impossible to put down a book and if you would’ve told me that I could possibly love the next generation of Corps Security even more than the original, I would have said you were crazy. While the jury is still out on that, I do believe it could be happening. I’m not sure who is next in this series, I’m kinda hoping for Nate, but really I know that I am going to be happy with whoever it is that Harper Sloan decides to entertain us with.

Unexpected Fate (Hope Town Series, Book #1) by Harper Sloan

Unexpected Fate (Hope Town Series, Book #1)

BXTCHES Gotta WarnWe first met Cohen Cage in the Security Corps Series (Cage). After reading this book, I don’t think that it is absolutely necessary to read that series first, although I have no idea why you wouldn’t read it, just for the pure joy it will bring you, but whatever. I will say this, a lot of the characters that we love from that series, will make an appearance (or more) in this book. So, really if you want to get the full on Corps Security experience, you should check out that series first. Trust me, it’s well worth it. Don’t believe me? Check out my review of the series here.

I know you must remember cute little Cohen Cage from the Corps Security series, right? Well, cute is out the window. The boy is now a man and he is HAWT! Dani Reid, yes, Axel and Izzy’s little girl, has been in love with Cohen since she can remember, and it’s now time to make him see what it is he has been missing out on. This book will be told through the POV of both Dani and Cohen.

Cohen has known that Dani (or as he calls her, Dani-girl) has been in love with him since she was 15 years old and in a defining moment for Cohen, she whispered her feelings to him. Over the years, he pulled that memory to help him get through some of his toughest times. The problem however, is Dani is almost 5 years younger than Cohen, so Cohen knew that because of the age difference there wasn’t much he could do then. Now, fast forward 6 years, Dani is now 21 and reveals once again to Cohen how she feels. Now in all fairness to Dani, she was extremely ill and drugged up on some high potency cough syrup. But for Cohen, it certainly stirs something in him.

Here is where the problem lies. Cohen has followed in his father’s footsteps and is in the military, and is getting ready to deploy once again. Not knowing how long this tour will take him, he doesn’t want to start anything up with Dani until he has a stronger and more stable hold on the future. Of course the other problem comes in the form of a very over protective father, who will stop at nothing to protect his only daughter AKA Axel Reid.

Dani will take Cohen however he comes, overseas or not and gets her wish after a particularly emotional going away party. Surely you can figure out now that Dani gets her guy. They make the decision to wait it out and once Cohen returns from overseas, that they will really give a relationship with one another a real shot. It wouldn’t be a true Corps Security book of any kind if there wasn’t any drama involved, right? Shortly after Cohen deploys, Dani starts to receive flowers every week. Thinking that they are from Cohen, she of course falls in love even more. Once she realizes that Cohen is indeed not the giver, hell will break loose. Dani has crazy after her and Cohen being overseas, can’t do a thing about it. While I didn’t think that it was too difficult to figure out the culprit, it was certainly a page turner and easy to figure out or not, it was well played.

There is other drama involved, that I can’t really say too much about without giving it away, but as I read it and things unfolded, I will honestly say, I thought “again?”. But, after reading it, my exasperation was very short lived. You are going to be introduced to a whole new generation of Corps Security. Some will appear way more than others, but it was a joy to read these characters who were first introduced as babies.

You know what’s next. Oh multiple orgasm, Harper Sloan very seldom disappoints in the sex scene area. Once again, she wrote some fierce, throw you on your back, rip off your panties, sex. The sex was fantastic, if you didn’t pick that up by my description, but the other thing she did well and I need to thank her for, she made Cohen a great dirty talker. I am an advocate for dirty talk in the bedroom (real or fiction) and she made it “bite your lip” worthy.

I will confess that I read this book in 1 day. It was that good. I am someone who gets car sick when I read in an automobile, but today, I read in the car until I started to feel it come on. When we stopped at the store and my hubby ran in, I read. So, yes, I think that this book is wonderful. It does appear that this will be a series, which makes me super excited. So stay tuned.
