• Callous Criminal by Lynn Burke

    Ryker’s soul was beaten and broken found a new family for himself. Pia has a heart of gold that tries to protect the children in her care from hurts she suffered. Coffee is the great matchmaker. That is where the two first meet and boy was a first impression made. The first sex scene….f***ing A….hot as Hades itself. Their Chemistry is brighter than Sheldon’s bunson burner. Not only is Pia the first person to touch his heart, but she is the first person he allowed to touch him period. I think he will be my book boyfriend of this series.

    I love how the author not only touched our hearts with the side story of Dasia, but set us up for Dasia and Devil’s story. So excited to read that story as well.

    I’m a cold hearted criminal, and I’ve lived a callous life as the Sergeant at Arms of the Vicious Vipers MC. I spent most of my childhood as a victim, and because of the junkie who raised me, I hate to be touched.
    But her…
    The social worker my fingers itch to reach for—she’s wholesome. Kind. Too good for a man like me, and yet, I can’t curb my weakness to be near her.
    When one of her teenage clients needs protection from the same type of man who hurt my sister, I know I’ll be revealing my true self, my darker side, to help the girl.
    For her.
    I’ll lose the only person I’ve found who values my feelings above her own—the woman whose sweet nature is a force to be reckoned with.
    I know I should walk away, but how do I leave the heart I didn’t know I still had behind?
    *This is the third book in the Vicious Vipers MC series and may be unsuitable for someone under 18 years of age. HEA guaranteed, however, secondary characters make appearances in other’s stories. Reading in order is recommended.

  • Quarantining like everyone else.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) is among us.   I feel like we are living in the movie Outbreak lately.   My son is on week two of his Spring Break.  They extended it another week so that Professors could learn how to teach their college courses online.  I was luckily on vacation last week, so I was paid for staying home.  Now, I am home with my son and husband like the rest of New York State and other states.  Only my husband, who is an EMT, goes to work or when needed as a Volunteer Fireman.  

    I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning to my chagrin.  With Fibromyalgia,  normal cleaning is bad enough, the deep cleaning I have been doing plays havoc on my body.  I have read a lot,.  However, the reviews that go with them have gone unwritten.  Bad Blogger!!!  I will do them, I have a whole other week off to write them, and read more books.  I am quit behind on my reading. 

    On a positive, I am currently beta reading for a great author and can wait to read the new book she just put in my inbox.  Also, my girlfriends and I have been using Zoom to call each other to video chat just to “hang out” as we wish we could in person.  We sit, BS, and drink alcohol together like usual.    If anyone else is using Zoom, hit me up, we can have a party!!!!

    Ok enough procrastinating, I need to do things before my 9pm BSing session begins.  

    Be safe, be well, and read the quarantine away.

    Janelle used her palms to push away from his rock-hard chest. “What the hell do you think you’re doing? You can’t just treat me like a belonging. And smacking my ass? I should shoot you for that.”

    He smiled, mischief twinkling in his gaze. “You liked it.”

    “I…” She glanced away from those impossibly dark eyes so he wouldn’t see the truth. Christ, it had been a turn-on, but she’d die before admitting as much. “I didn’t.”

    His arched brow mocked her. “Liar.”

    July, 2013 Landstuhl, Germany

    “Damn, Doc! You machine. You’ve gotta’ be exhausted?” 

    Robert Adams glanced from reading the chart in his hand to the tall blond nurse who had come to a stop beside him. He’d met the guy weeks ago and had seen him around the hospital dozens of times since. Robert winced internally. If he hadn’t become such a self-absorbed ass and been the better person he was raised to be, he’d have made it a point to remember the man’s name. This was just another reminder of how he hadn’t even tried to fit in socially with the hospital staff. 

    If he’d learned anything from the past eight or so months, self-beratement didn’t help adjust his rotten attitude. Robert had given up on any hope of absolution and had let this funky, fucked-up mood consume his entire life. 

    Yet another thing his fathers would be disappointed in him for. Why couldn’t he just try to be friendlier? The idea seemed almost impossible to achieve. With a heavy internal sigh, he gave up on the guy’s name and remembered that the nurse was always around the hospital too. 

    “I think that’s preaching to the choir.” For the past month, Robert had been placed on duty at the Landstuhl Regional Military Hospital in Germany. From the janitorial staff all the way to the top brass, the whole team seemed to have great respect for one another. They were solid professionals who genuinely got along well with one another and they had had no problem welcoming Robert—a civilian—into their circle with open arms. He’d been the one to purposefully keep his distance. 

    Another point in the hospital staff’s favor was that not one person had referenced either one of his fathers. They offered no awkward condolences on their untimely deaths. There was no talk of his dad, Avery Adams, being a great patriot to their country or the loss of his other father, his daddy, Kane Adams, so quickly after Avery’s death. Robert didn’t have to listen to all the ridiculous theories of soul mates—a perfect love intertwined with a connection so deep that death couldn’t break his fathers’ bond. Here at LRMC, Robert just got to be a man immersing himself in work. 

    The scalpel hadn’t felt right in his hand for a good while now. He’d come to LRMC in merely a support capacity role. He took every shift offered in order to keep his plate so full, there wasn’t time to dwell on what had happened in his personal life. Especially his responsibility in his beloved daddy’s sudden decline and ultimate death. Pain lanced across his heart so sharply it forced the air from his lungs as the weight of what he’d done sat heavily on his chest. And just like that, the overwhelming feeling returned, threatening to force the air from his lungs and drag him under. 

    He’d heard time eased loss, and perhaps it might, but he doubted the guilt would ever fade. If he’d done things differently, he wouldn’t be here in Germany chasing mystical signs, searching for anything to give purpose to this pain. The heavy weight of guilt. A fucking bottomless pit of quicksand filled with deep sorrow, regret, and disappointment in himself that had him sinking deeper every time he tried to break free. Robert let go of the breath he’d been holding and scrubbed a hand down the length of his face. 

    “You okay, buddy?” the nurse asked, hijacking his pity party. 

    Robert glanced over, surprised to see the man still standing beside him. Apparently, this depression he fought robbed him of any reasonable thought. When the pain took over, it stole everything. How could he move forward when his head and heart couldn’t get past how badly he’d handled things? 

    “Yeah, I’m fine, just a little tired. I’m doing rounds then heading out.” Forcing a grin, Robert tried for upbeat, hoping to hide the pain silently drowning him. And it seemed to work. The nurse gave an easy nod, accepting his answer. 

    “I’m on duty tonight. Let me know what you need.” The guy squeezed his shoulder then gave him a reassuring pat on the back before leaving Robert standing there alone. 

    “Right,” he muttered and forced himself back to the patient chart in his hand, refusing to wallow in the murky pit of guilt and regret that the conversation had stirred. He stared at the notes, not remembering a single thing he’d read from just moments ago. He had to do better. He had too.

    I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
    Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
     
    I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
     
    That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
     
    Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
     
    Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
