It’s no secret that one of my favorite “guilty-pleasure” heroes are the bad-a$$ fighter types. Underground street fighters, cage fighters, MMA, UFC, Boxers, up and comers, and Heavyweight champions… it’s all good to me. I love ’em!! I love watching them on TV and I especially love reading as they find (and attempt to resist) love amidst their chaotic lives. The highs—> super-strength and super-skills, and the lows (or the “fun stuff” if you ask me) —> groupies and anger issues. ‘Cause it’s always that, isn’t it? They’re fighters for a reason, and the tough-guy/bad-boy attitude is irresistible to me. They are the rock stars of their world, the “gladiators” of ours and BIG on protecting those they love. *swoooooon*
The Ultimate List of Bad Boy Biker Books
NEW BIKER BOOKS LIST UPDATE 06-18-2019!!! We just posted an extensive “Reader Recommendations” list here ➔ Our Favorite Dark and Gritty Biker Romance Books
PLUS!!! Can’t get enough of biker books? Check out all of the posts categorized “Bikers” here on the blog. :D!!!
Just updated (04/23/13) with some fresh new bikers!! Up to 111 books on this list, now. 🙂 While I’ve come to realize that I don’t think I was cut out to be an “old lady” in my real life, I love “living it” in my book life. All that raw and gritty, unapologetic male testosterone wreaking all sorts of havoc on our hearts! TRUE bad-boys that stick to a certain rogue code. But it’s that exact thrill, that keeps us coming back for more. We know to expect the unexpected, (and by now, that bad behavior is actually “expected”) but still… that moment of OH NO HE DIDN’T is addicting. And they’re not always so bad, are they? It’s that little peek into their soft side, that glimpse into a hardened heart that has us swooning. And of course, their uber-alpha protective side. Yep. Hard to resist!
The Ultimate List of Teacher-Student Romance Books
THIS LIST WAS UPDATED DECEMBER 5th 2015!!
Some of you have specifically asked for this list, and/or made excellent book recommendations for it. Wonderful idea!! I happily gathered what I could find (and what you’ve suggested), right here.
Kylie: I just finished A Season of Eden and as much as I enjoyed it, it was a bit toned down for my liking. So I thought… what about a new category, we’ve had rock stars and mob men. How about teacher/professor student relationships, I have to say I think this is a great idea!!
My Top Five Summer Reads – 2012
Well, summer is officially over. As of today. The first day of fall. And my husband is already starting to get excited about Christmas. Yep! Do you remember me mentioning his Christmas addiction last year? And the year before that? He comes up often in my posts nearing that time of the year, and he’s already starting up. I posted his first “Christmas *squee*” a few days ago on Facebook:
“I was watching the Hallmark channel and just saw a “Countdown to Christmas” commercial advertising their upcoming Christmas movies.
What To Read After Thoughtless
Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens (wow… the ultimate in angst, heartache, crazy, blood-boiling moments and swoonworthy heroes!)
<—- This book runs the gamut on what I love to read!
- Gorgeous coveted rock star? Check!
- Rock star secretly starts falling for sweet “normal” girl.Check!
- Lots of drama and angst (and I mean ANGST!!!) Check!
- Infuriating situations involving all of the main characters (yes, Denny, I’m looking at you!! You started it! Grrrr!).*woops* sorry ’bout that. *ahem* Check!
- Making foolish decisions (or serious indecision) for fear of hurting/angering/losing … someone (Yes. That’s right. I’m talkin’ ’bout love triangles.)
- Uncomfortable & surprising subject matter that had me emotionally reacting to the point that I felt it, physically? DOUBLE CHECK!
Oh yes… be forewarned. If you haven’t read this yet, this book goes there. This isn’t your usual “safe” love triangle that we so often find in our romance books. This is the whole shebang that will have you seeing red while simultaneously feeling guilty for enjoying it so much. So who wants more?
