Caged in Darkness by Amy Thorn Blog Tour

Blog Tour. Amy Thorn’s Caged in Darkness.


Getting kicked out of the Army was the worst day of my life. I never thought I'd find direction again, until my brother suggested I prospect for the Black Death Riders Motorcycle Club. I wanted brotherhood, loyalty, and respect. I didn't expect to find him. Thanatos. He's the devil on a steel horse and I'm falling for him. He has demons, a darkness caging him that I can't break through. If I'm not careful, he might drag us both into the abyss.


Ever since my sister was killed, I've been on a path of self-destruction. They don't call me after Death for no reason. I've slain more men than I can count, and I did it with a smile. I'm broken, destroyed, living in torment and I don't deserve one moment of happiness—until Isaac walks into my life, and I find I want all of that and more.

But my path of destruction has put my club on the radar of people who will kill us all without a second thought. I never considered the consequences of my war with them, until Isaac got in their path. Now, the only good thing I've ever had in my life might be taken from me, and there's nothing I can do about it.

Warning: Contains adult content, reading age 18+. Graphic violence and dark emotional scenes that may trigger some readers.

Guilt claws at my heart, threatening to squeeze it until it can’t beat any longer and nausea climbs up my throat. For a moment, it’s her blood on my hands and my breath rips out of me as I try to calm my racing heart. Fuck, I’m going to have a fucking heart attack if it keeps pounding this hard.

A hand touches my shoulder. My attention ensnared, I snap my eyes in the direction it comes from and see a familiar face.


Dark hair, brown eyes, and a square jawline that tightens when he takes in my heaving chest greet me.

I watch as his brows draw down, his movements like he’s trying to soothe a feral animal. Maybe that’s all I am. An animal. Some days, I feel more beast than human.

“You with us, Prez?” he asks, his voice soft, as if he’s worried about speaking too loudly.

I shake myself and push Tillie out of my mind. That fleeting moment is all I allow my sister to have. Anything more than that is dangerous. Anything more than that and I can’t keep my carefully crafted walls in place.

“Yeah,” I grind out the word through my teeth. “I’m fucking fine.”

He doesn’t look convinced. I don’t blame him for that. These days the line between sanity and chaos is thin. My brothers think they’ve seen me lose control, but they’ve never seen me fully unleash the demons that exist within me. They’ll never see them either. Letting those monsters out of the box would bring with it a shit storm I don’t think I could keep hold of.

I keep those fuckers on a tight leash, but they are always battling for dominance. Sometimes, I think it would be easier to give in to them, to let them have that control, but the fear that I would lose the last piece of my soul keeps me from letting it happen.

“You need me to finish?” Spider asks, his eyes straying to the other man sitting on the floor next to the bastard I just stabbed sixteen times. From the sincerity in his eyes, I can see he means it.

My gaze shifts to the vice president patch on his black leather kutte, to the one percent patch that tells the world that we’re outlaws. They’re more than just patches.

They’re everything.




They represent everything we are.



I’m not capable of caring about anyone else. Not how I used to. The part of me that used to feel is dead.

Notice: This is a cliffhanger.

I will start by saying that Isaac (a.k.a. Zac) getting "kicked out" of the Army is misleading. Being injured and unable to go back is not something to be embarrassed about.

Zac is looking for a new place in life. He misses his brothers from the Army, but when his biological brother offers him another brotherhood, Zac knows that he will dedicate his life to a new cause.

Thanatos (a.k.a. Than) is a beast of a man. He has a darkness inside of him that nobody can contain and when he unleashes, blood and gore will follow. He runs his club with an iron fist, but he knows that he respects his brothers too. He would die for any of his brothers and knows that their cause is a righteous one.

When Zac and Than meet for the first time, it ignites a spark in both men. Neither truly believed that they could feel anymore. Not after experiencing so much pain and death. Who could, or would, love their dark souls?

They have a feisty chemistry and even though it's quick, you can feel that they need each other equally. Both are fighting demons and it's only the calm they feel when together that allows them hope.

As the Black Death Riders seek out those who would harm others in the name of money, Than's enemies will stop at nothing to kill him and his brothers. This is an involved story and while it's short, you will be invested in what's going to happen next.

I have been on a kick of reading dark books lately and this one hit the mark. I loved Isaac and Thanatos. I enjoyed everything about this book even though at times it seemed drawn out, and Thanatos and his "I want you but can't have you" crap. You can only deal with hearing that so many times in a book. Things were just getting really good and then BAM the book ended... on a cliffhanger. Ugh. Oh well. Can't wait to read the next book.



He can never be mine, because people who get close to me die, and I won’t do that to Isaac.

The Dom Identity by Lexi Blake Blog Tour

A man with everything. A woman with nothing left to lose. A love that might save them both. The Dom Identity by Lexi Blake. Available Now.

A man with everything

Michael Malone seems to have it all. A wealthy, loving family. A job that fulfills him. Friends he can count on. But something is missing. He’s spent years watching his brother and close friends get married and start families, but it hasn’t happened for him. When an assignment comes up to investigate fallen Hollywood star Vanessa Hale, he jumps at the chance. She’s gorgeous and potentially deadly. Playing the spy game with her might be just the thing to take his mind off his troubles.

A woman with nothing left to lose

Vanessa Hale had big dreams that ended in scandal. She returned home with nothing but heartache and the desire to find her mother’s killer. The trail points to someone at Lodge Corp, so taking a job with Julian Lodge’s mysterious company is her best option for finding the truth. While she hunts for a killer during the day, she hopes to find some solace at night in The Club. Meeting the gorgeous, sexy and seemingly kind Michael Malone, their chemistry sparks in a way she’s never felt before, and Vanessa thinks maybe her luck has finally changed.

A love that might save them both

When Michael’s true motives are revealed, she will have to find a way to forgive his betrayal. The killer has made Vanessa their next target. Working together and stopping this monster is the only chance for them to have the real love they both deserve.

Michael Malone might come from money, but he doesn’t live his life in a manner that would suggest that. He loves his job working with the crew that’s become his second family. When an assignment comes up, the assumptions that Michael makes about his new assignment will show him exactly the kind of blinders he’s been wearing.

Vanessa Hale has had a lot dumped on her in her short lifetime. She was once idealistic, carefree, and wanting to take on the world. Now that she’s been walked over, criticized to within an inch of her life, and vilified, she can’t help but want to see something good come of all of her hurt. With her sister in her mind, Vanessa sets out to solve her sister’s death.

Michael and Vanessa complement each other. Both come from pasts they’d rather not show, but both also hold their cards close to the vest. Their chemistry is something that a lot of couples strive to obtain. But with the mission hanging in the way, can Vanessa and Michael find their happy ever after?

This is a great mix of romance, mystery, danger, and forgiveness. Men being men make decisions that ultimately prove to be the wrong choice and when the truth comes out, everyone will be scrambling to figure out the true mission.

Michael Malone is part of the McKay-Taggart team and he is part of the "club scene" too. When his next job is to be the dom to Vanessa and to find out what he can about her, he was not expecting to fall for her.

Vanessa Hale is an actress wanting to know who killed her sister and who is after her. Joining the club and her sister's job should get her closer to the people in her sister's life. What she wasn't expecting was Michael, the dom that would take her on.

As the two get closer and she learns more about her sister, things begin to change between them. When Vanessa learns the truth about Michael's involvement, she has to learn what else he has lied about. Now she doesn't know who she can trust.

Can Michael earn back her trust? Is there a future for them in the end? Will they find out who is after her?

I love this series and am so glad we got Michael and Vanessa's story. It is filled with suspense, intrigue, full of action, funny, loving, heartbreaking, and happily ever after. Author Lexi Blake has a way of pulling you into this series from the very first page and keeping you in this story until the end, you will not want to put it down. I cannot wait for more.

This is the second book in the new series, but there are over 20 books in this wonderful world created by the very talented Lexi Blake. I am always so excited when a new book is released, as it is a perfect opportunity to rejoin the McKay-Taggart world and catch up with all the family. If you have not read one before, then you are in for a huge treat – and I imagine you will be starting at the beginning and enjoy all the goodness in order.

Only a short while ago, Tessa ended her engagement to Michael and found love with another. Michael is genuinely happy for her, but he clearly thinks that was his only chance at love, and it didn't work. So, when he is given a task to investigate up close and personally with a discredited starlet, he is less than happy about it. We know that something is going to work out, as we trust the author to give us a love affair that will keep us on our toes.

Vanessa, reviled by the press for being the widow of a man old enough to have been her grandfather and taking all the family money, is hiding out in Dallas, working for her dead sister's boss. Linked to the McKay-Taggart family, when some money goes missing, they are called in to find out what is happening. Hence Michael is now involved... and when I say involved, he is going to be getting very close as he becomes her training dom at The Club. She is secretly looking into her sister's death, as she thinks it may be due to someone at The Club.

There are a number of crossing plots and twists thrown in to deflect and confuse – classic Blake techniques, which work really well as ever. There is a perfect mix of subterfuge, erotic encounters, and a nascent romance. Much as these two can't imagine their lives having a happy ending, everyone else can see what they are blind to!

Very enjoyable read, I recommend it to you.

Pines and Violets. Colors of Love #7. V.L. Locey.

He never thought he’d find love again, but one summer changes his entire life.

Greg Mattar always had a clear path in life. The son of wealthy professionals, he and his sister wanted for nothing growing up in Montreal. His skills playing hockey led him to be picked first in the draft and a successful career as one of the premier defensemen in the league. He married his college sweetheart and within a year, they’d been blessed with twin girls. Then the unthinkable happened, and Greg’s life was turned inside out.

After losing his wife to cancer, he’s left alone to raise his daughters and at the same time balance his career. After a rough year of mourning coupled with a dismal season, Greg and his girls travel to a small vacation community deep in the Catskills. There he meets Aiden Burke, a local artisan with a past who enchants not only Greg’s daughters but Greg as well. During a vacation filled with laughter, acceptance, and morning goose parades, the two men fall for each other, which begins a journey down a winding road of revelations and romance.

This is the seventh book in this fabulous series and may be my favourite yet!

This is such an original storyline, which works on so many levels, and just had me turning the pages till I came to the end, because I had to know how on earth it could work out! Of course I trusted the author, but the little touches made the experience all the richer. The twins were utterly hilarious and completely accepting. Their happiness was so key to the success of the relationship; something acknowledged by all.

Little could one expect the hilarious realities which arise due to Aiden keeping goats and geese. I will not spoil the scenarios, but I am certain that when you get to some of the funnier incidents you will really be laughing!

For a book which started off very sadly, and has Aiden's past to contend with, it is an uplifting story, and left me with a big smile on my face.

But Declan has complications of his own. He’s cagey, but I’ll win him over.

Yeah, about that focus… mine is all on him. Can we have a harmless fling without getting hurt?

Paperback (US)




The Busy Bean reminds me of my father’s pub in Galway, where I had my first drink and started my love affair with Irish whiskey. I’ve traded booze for hot cider, but I crave the inviting pub vibe of this bakery. There are plenty of bars in town—like the place right across the car park—but I don’t dare set foot in one. This is the closest I’ll allow myself.

“Hi, what can I get started for you?”

I spin toward the lilting female voice and frown. I come here just about every day and I’ve never seen this woman. She’s a pretty little thing who barely comes up to my shoulder. A black T-shirt peeks from beneath the bright yellow apron that covers her breasts. She’s cinched the tie around her waist, showcasing her hourglass figure.

“Hello?” She props both hands on her hips. “Would you like to order something?”

My gaze snaps to her face and locks on to a set of eyes the exact shade of golden amber as whiskey. With her tanned skin, and thick, honey-blonde hair, I’d swear I walked into a distillery. My throat tightens, and the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end as I try to find the words to answer.

Her mouth starts to move again, drawing my focus to her lips. Full and pink, like a wild Irish rose. “I brewed a fresh pot of coffee and the drink of the day is a dirty apple chai.” She licks those plush lips and adds, “With apples from the Shipley orchards, of course.”

My stomach twists into a knot as I glance at the section of countertop that looks like a bar. I’d give my left arm for a pint of Guinness. And I’d give both arms for some whiskey. Desperate to derail that train of thought, I force my gaze to the display of artisanal honey from some of the local apiaries. Funny how the warm amber color also reminds me of whiskey, making my mouth water.

Then again, maybe it’s blondie who’s got me salivating. Whiskey be damned, I’d sell my soul to the Devil for a taste of her.



Everything about this woman oozes warmth and honey. Sunshine and whiskey.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the tenth book in this multi-author series based in Sarina Bowen's True North world. I have read many of them, and really enjoy catching up with old friends and reading about new loves.

This is quite a difficult read in places, as Sunny/Solana's brother may have developed a heart, but he was a terrible guardian to her when their parents were killed. I did feel that I could see the set-up for what happened, but I still enjoyed watching it play out, even if I kept wondering when the shoe would drop.

Romance-wise, Sunny and Declan are an inevitability, and yet there are a number of barriers which will force them to evaluate what they want, what they need, and how they can be there for each other. Dec's son, Liam, is a bright light in the confusion, as is his lovely dog, Moira.

It was lovely to have May featuring more, as she supported Dec through some dark times. And with Sunny having grown up locally, she is known by the community. Her best friends, Will and River, get to love and care for her and support her through her anxiety, as well as encouraging her to take a chance with Dec.

A really interesting twist in the story, which really made me wonder how they could possibly work out the dynamics at play, but the author does a great job.



I’m afraid if I start touching this woman, I’ll never stop, and that’s a rabbit hole I can’t afford to go down.

I have to say that I have been waiting for Diesel and Tracey's story, and I was not disappointed at all.

This story is filled with all things that make a story totally awesome, from Diesel and Tracey's past to the way they are together, it is perfect.

I do have to say that this is one story that I highly recommend that you read it even if you haven't read anything else from author Melissa Foster, it is that awesome. And come on, look at that cover too. I love everything about this series, and I think Running on Diesel has just become my favorite, if that is possible. It is filled with angst, funny lines from Tracey, Diesel, all the Whiskeys, and their friends. It's filled with friends, family, and brotherhood. Something I love about reading any of Foster's books.

I hope you fall in love with Running on Diesel too.

This is the eighth book in this particular series, but as all Foster books, it links across her whole world, and is all the richer for it. I am a huge fan and am always delighted to get the chance to find out more about these lovely families, and their lives and loves.

Diesel has been in our sights for a while, as he has been at Peaceful Harbor helping out for the last couple of years. He has been keeping a close eye on bartender Tracey, too, but well aware that given her past, he was far too big and loud and utterly unsuitable for her – even if he is completely beguiled by her.

Tracey moved in with a boyfriend who turned out to be abusive. She has pulled herself up by her bootstraps and, thanks to the Whiskeys, she is much happier and finally feels safe again. She is training in martial arts so that she can protect herself should she ever need to and is making wise decisions about her future. Her heart wants Diesel, but that is definitely not wise.

I loved the dance that these two play, and the way that the whole family gather round and support them both as they consider taking a chance.

Another totally fascinating, sexy, and utterly adorable story. I highly recommend this to you – so many revelations and second chances... enchanting.

M/F Mystery

Bree is reliving the past again. Only this time, it's right up in her face and in the face of the people she loves most. She knew returning to their old house was a mistake. There were too many memories and too much pain, but she wanted to support her brother. Now, she wishes she could take it back.

In this fast-paced mystery, you're uncovering years of murder, a plot that only can be hidden for so long now that bodies are associated with it, and the killer who's willing to do anything to keep their secret hidden.

You'll see this small town's underbelly at its worst. Leigh creates a high stress situation among everyone who's involved, but she also sends in hints of what might have happened.

I really enjoyed following the nuggets as they were divulged. Leigh leads you along with crumb after crumb and in the end, you breathe a sigh of relief. Maybe now Bree and her family can have some peace.

The fourth instalment of the Bree Taggert series sees Bree returning to her family farm, 27 years after her father killed her mother only to discover human remains buried on the property. We then follow Bree as she investigates the 30-year-old murders that likely involved her father.

I really enjoyed the police investigation and watching Bree and her team as they identify the remains and try to work out who killed the victims and why. I found the story engaging and I liked that it wasn’t immediately obvious who the killer was. As well as the mystery, we get to see Bree’s romance with Matt take a few new steps, and it was good to see Bree’s life coming settled both professionally and personally.

Right Behind Her is another interesting crime story mixed with a little bit of life and love for Bree. I have to say there were a few scenes that really got my heart pumping and had me on the edge of my seat. This is a really good series and I’m looking forward to more books from Bree. Right Behind Her gets a solid four stars from me.
