Enjoy the excerpt!

My eyes dropped to her chest. That top fit her tits like a glove; any man would struggle to keep their eyes off her chest. I wasn’t a saint and had no problem showing my appreciation so it took me more than a few moments to look back up to her face. She was shaking her head at me but there was a hint of a smile.
I smirked. “Sweetheart, if you’re gonna wear shit like that you’ve gotta expect men to stare.”
“Turn around.”
“What?”
She repeated herself. “I said, turn around.”
“Yeah, I got that but I’m wondering where you’re going with this.”
She walked over to me until she was in my personal space. A sexy smile came over her face and she said, “I want you to turn around so that I can check out your ass cause baby, a woman’s got needs and if you’re gonna wear shit like that, her needs are gonna be fulfilled.”
I reached out and curled my hand around her neck, pulling her closer. “Fuck woman, what are you doing to me?”
Her breathing became ragged. “The same thing you’re doing to me.”

“Fierce” (Fierce #1) by Clarissa Wild – My Review

Handsome young man posing.

Title: “Fierce” (Fierce #1)

Author: Clarissa Wild

Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance

Release Date: 24th January, 2014

Synopsis

Fight for your dreams. Fight for your life. Fight for love.

Nerdy girl Autumn Blakewood is the prime example of a goody two-shoes. She studies every night, is never late for class, and always follows the rules. She has never felt the need to step out of her comfort zone. That is, until she meets Hunter.

Hunter Bane is a cocky, confident bad-boy, who’s nothing but trouble. He’s a dangerous distraction to everyone around him. Sexy and strong, Hunter enjoys the swooning effect he has on women. Especially those who aren’t used to attention, like Autumn.

Autumn finds it hard not to give into Hunter’s advances, even though it all seems like a game to him. Trying to understand him is impossible, because he shrouds himself in mystery.
What she doesn’t know is that Hunter has more baggage than anyone should have to carry. When she discovers he’s in an illegal frat club to save the one person that matters to him, Autumn realizes this could mean the end of her undeniable connection to him. Even their lives are at risk.
But it’s too late to turn back now.

My Review

Complimentary copy given by the author in exchange for an honest review

This is one of those times when I am finding it hard to put my thoughts into complete sentences, because I must admit that I had quite a few problems with this book. At the same time, I do not want to give you any spoilers – as I have said before: no two people read the same book, meaning that just because I did not become fully invested in it, who is to say that the same will happen to you? I will do my best to voice my concerns without ruining it for you.

But first of all, I want to say that there is no real point in me giving you a long and lengthy synopsis of the book as it is already very explicit, and I feel that it is rather pointless of me to repeat any of the actual storyline to you. I will, however, tell you that the story is told solely from Autumn’s point of view.

So let me begin listing the parts of the story I enjoyed:

For a while – until the 30% mark – I liked getting to know Autumn; her shyness felt rather endearing, and her sadness over losing Brody seemed realistic and understandable – he has, after all, been a great friend to her in the past. Furthermore, I could understand her getting frustrated about Hunter constantly changing his mind about her. I also feel that her relationship with Evie turning complicated was portrayed really well by the author.

And Hunter? Well, at first he is a very interesting character – he keeps his thoughts hidden, and the fact that Autumn keeps getting butterflies in her stomach was rather funny to read about. I liked the air of mystery surrounding him, and I was fully invested in uncovering his secrets, but, again, only until 30% into the book – and that is when things started to frustrate me.

I would also like to stress that I could absolutely feel the strong attraction between Autumn and Hunter – it is scorching hot! So I really think that the author did a good job with letting us see that, no question about that.

First of all, I have to say that although I liked Autumn in the beginning of the book, her innocence started to grate on my nerves. She almost seems to be too innocent, too naïve, considering she is supposed to be starting college. To put it bluntly: to me, Autumn was acting more like a girl in high school instead of a freshman at college. Furthermore, I am saddened by the fact that we do not get that much information about her background aside from the fact that her family is poor; and I would have liked to learn more.

The part about Hunter that did not work for me was him changing his mind all…the…time. Granted, when you read about his learning disability, you understand his actions, but only up until a certain point. To be perfectly honest, his mood swings were giving me whiplash, and I am sorry to say that I even wanted to quit reading the book and move on from time to time…However, I very seldom do that, and I am actually glad that I persevered.

Apart from my issues with these characters, I also had some problems with the suspense part of the story: in some ways, I think it was a good theme to write about – and I am sure that a lot of drugs circulate at colleges all the time – but I find it hard to believe that dealing with drugs can be done so much out in the open. But maybe that is just my ignorance voicing itself here as it is a world completely foreign to me.

The main reason I am not giving this book a higher rating – aside from the issues mentioned above – is that I feel that the ending was rushed unnecessarily. I would have liked the book much more if the author had slowed down a bit and given us some more details, or even an epilogue, in order for the story to come full circle.

This review may seem a bit harsh…and you may be right. However, I have always said that I would be completely honest in my reviews, without disrespecting the authors, of course, and I hope that you do not feel that I am being too judgmental. I really think that you can feel that Miss Wild writes with great passion for her characters, that she cares for them deeply; I am just sorry to say that, to me,  the promise of Autumn and Hunter’s journey seemed better than it actually was.

Enjoy the excerpt, everyone!

I stepped into his space, backed him up against the counter, and leant real close so that only he and I could hear what I was about to say.  “Now would be the right time for you and your family to leave.  I don’t like any of the shit that’s just gone down, so unless you want trouble between the two of us, leave now,” I threatened.   When I saw him hesitate, I grabbed a handful of his shirt and snarled, “Did you not understand what I just said, motherfucker?”  We glared at each other for a couple of moments before I let him go, shoving him hard against the counter in the process.  Keeping my eyes trained on his, I slowly stepped back.  Planting my legs wide, I crossed my arms in front of my chest and scowled at him. 
 
Harlow opened her mouth to say something but I caught the movement and flicked my gaze to her for a second, giving her a clear message to stay out of it. She shut her mouth and glared back at me, her eyes widening in a ‘what the fuck’ type gesture.  That shocked the shit out of me, and my concentration was diverted from the asshole to her.  I’d never been given that look by a chick before; usually it was J or Nash who challenged me like that.  I raised my eyebrows at her, and fuck me if she didn’t raise hers right fucking back.

Synopsis
 
Life can be a bitch but love can get you through any storm.

Madison Cole’s family is the Storm Motorcycle Club. Her father is the President and her brother is the VP. She grew up surrounded by bikers, crime and violence. Two years ago she walked away from her family and the world they live in. Her soul was shattered, her heart was broken and she had an addiction she couldn’t shake. She picked up the pieces and put herself back together. Now her family wants her back. The club is being threatened and they send a club member to return her home to safety; the one person that could destroy everything she has worked so hard to build.

Jason Reilly has sacrificed a lot for the motorcycle club he calls family. Two years ago he made the biggest sacrifice of all; he gave up the woman he loved for them. Now he is being sent to bring her back and he is conflicted. He thought he was over her but discovers their connection is as strong as ever. Their love was all-consuming, passionate and fiery. It was also their undoing and he doesn’t know if either of them is strong enough to battle the demons that ripped them apart, to find love again. 

Madison and Jason are brought back together by a force out of their control; one that pushes them to a breaking point. Can they overcome their past and discover a love worth fighting for or will the harsh reality of their world finally and completely break them both?
