Jack “Bulldog” Parrish
Crazy: Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.
I was thirteen when I discovered the definition of the word I’d forever be labeled.
Some used it as a figure of speech but for me it was a scar I’d carry through life.
Or so I believed until I was diagnosed a manic depressive.
I’m the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycle Club, a man of power and control.
A man with enemies near and far.
But the truth, my truth, is my biggest enemy— my mind and I live most of my life with no control whatsoever.
I’m just a man who battles his demons, a man destined to live a life full of darkness.
She’s the light beckoning me, calling me home, away from the torment.
In a world as dark as the one I live in, sometimes I can’t help but crave Sunshine.
I was lost, broken and a prisoner of my scars.
A shell of the woman I used to be, who didn’t know the difference between living and merely existing.
Until a stranger found me, fixed and freed me. He breathed life into my soul, reminding me I was a survivor and still had life to live.
My savior is a biker.
A man tortured by his own scars. A man broken like me, maybe even a little lost too.
I want to be his remedy.
I want to heal him.
I want to return the favor and be his savior.
This is our story, a story neither of us knew how to write until we found each other.
Disclaimer: This is the third book in the Tempted Series, but can be read as a standalone, but be prepared to be curious about the some of the characters in the previous books. I know I was 😛
See, here’s the thing – I like MC books. They’re like my guilty pleasure, especially considering that in real life I definitely work against them, but the optimist in me, can’t help but hope that these men have something good in them even with all that debauchery around them and MC books tend to give me that hope (not good for reality, but who really cares!??).
This is my first Janine book, and I definitely am quite eager to read more, especially the first two books. Set in a world of darkness, Janine has captured the perfectness of the MC world, at least the way I always imagined it to be 😀
“Jack. That walking, breathing, sliver of hell, masked as a man, shadowed in darkness. At least that’s what he thinks of himself. He is so much more. To me he is the light at the end of this tunnel of turmoil. Something I never saw coming but somehow he broke the walls around me without me even noticing. He’s my hope.”
Jack is a man tortured by his past and his own mind. A man who suffers from a Mood Disorder, he is tortured by what his believes was his inability to accept that he needed his help. The punch of angst is the first thing you get when you start reading – from Jack and from Reina when you do get to her.
Jack has only thing on his mind – to get revenge for his Fed brother’s murder and Reina is only a part of that puzzle, but she is the part that completes him (not that they both know it yet!). Both Jack and Reina are definitely noteworthy characters – not only did I fell for them, their pain became my own and their gradual falling in love with each other was beautiful and so brilliantly raw that I felt every jagged emotion of theirs like my own.
“I hate you for making me remember what it feels like to be alive. I hate you so much.”
But while I loved the characters, there were a little inconsistencies that as a psychologist I really couldn’t ignore. Jack’s mood disorder and Reina’s PTSD (because it couldn’t be classified as anything else) could have lent a lot more to the story than being just a little note to the background. Because when you suffer from a mental illness, it takes long term therapy to even come to terms with it, and while it was alluded to, I do believe that it would have had a lot more effect on the story, if it was a little more than a background note.
Except this (an issue that I do feel, not everyone will have with this book), everything – from the plot to the writing and the characters were brilliantly woven together! Definitely a must read, especially if you love MC romances!
“Give me your scars, baby,” he whispered, leaning his forehead against mine. “Let me be the one who sets you free from them.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
“For every piece of clothing you give me, I’ll give you a piece of my past,” I bargained, crossing my arms against my chest as I stared at her lazily through the glass.
“Your past?” She whispered hoarsely. “Maybe it’s not your past I want.”
“Don’t know how to give you more than that,” I admitted, pushing off the door and moving to stand behind her. I wrapped my arms around her waist, bringing her body against mine and looked at us in the mirror. “Give you what I got, Sunshine, and I’ll keep giving it as long as it comes to me,” I vowed, nuzzling her hair. “You see what I see?” I whispered against her ear.
“Turn the lights off, Jack, please,” she whispered, looking away from the mirror. I ran one hand up the front of her body, cupped her chin and forced her eyes towards the mirror.
“No,” I shook my head. “Not tonight,” I said taking her hands and lifting them over her head. I had claimed her to my brothers, but I meant it when I said I wanted all of her. I wanted her to trust me enough to give me the things she kept to herself, the things that haunted her and shielded her from the rest of the world. In my thirty-eight years I never wanted to be that guy, the one that heals another person, someone who cares enough to fix what is broken beyond repair.
She ruined me.
Or maybe she fixed me.
But it was my turn to do the fixing.

SYNOPSIS: Anthony Bianci
Since I was a kid all I ever wanted to be was a gangster. I wanted to be feared, to be respected, and for everyone to know my name.
And then she came into my life.
I never planned on falling in love with the mob boss’ daughter. She was forbidden but somehow she became mine. She made me crave things I didn’t even know existed and made me forget about the things I thought I wanted. My quest for power faded away and was replaced by my undying love for her.
Until reality bit me in the ass and I was sent to prison for three years, doing time for a crime I didn’t commit.
Now I’m out and she is creating a life for herself, just like I always wanted for her. Only I’m not a part of that life. I won’t ruin her any more than I already have with my poisonous lifestyle.
No matter how tempted I am.
I wanted him from the very first time I laid eyes on him.
He was everything to me, my first love and probably my last.
Then my father ruined our perfect little life, and he walked away from me.
I tried to fight for him, for our love, but he pushed me away.
When the love you crave is beautiful, yet forbidden, you can’t help being tempted.
So I’ll fight for him. For us.
Even if I’m the only one fighting.

SYNOPSIS: Michael Valente…
My father was the Underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me. My life was in shambles until Victor Pastore, one of New York’s most notorious gangsters and my late father’s best friend, recruited me to work for him.
Everyone expected me to walk in my father’s shadow, to be the prodigal son, the next big thing to hit the mob. I was torn between filling those expectations and walking the straight line my mother wished I had. Nothing made sense and I felt as if I was just passing through life.
The only beacon of light in my otherwise dark world was the one girl that was off limits to me. The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul.
She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.
My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s nightclubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki. I struggle for people to acknowledge me for the woman I am and not for the men in my life. I’m fighting a losing battle.
There is only one person who sees me for me, my Mikey.
He’s hot as hell.
He’s completely unattainable, but oh so tempting.
