Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  March 20, 2015

DescriptionTrapped in a marriage since the age of twenty-one, Malinda May is finally free. Having lost her biker husband, she is determined to keep her two teenage children as far away from the MC lifestyle as possible, a lifestyle which has brought her nothing but heartache and fear.

Life is never that simple.

Relentless in their mission to prove to Malinda that not all bikers are bad, the Hawks’ women are determined to support Malinda and her family, whether she wants it or not. In her struggle to keep her distance, Malinda soon battles her desire to keep her family safe or relent and begin to trust the MC.

Tired of women and their mind games, Declan Stoke knows women are only good for keeping his bed warm for a night. Having once thought he’d found the one, he’s no longer willing to put his heart on the line. Even when faced with the temptation of a wounded, sexy woman, he steers clear…well, tries to.

Malinda and Stoke find themselves at an impasse, one seemingly impossible to navigate through. With trouble brewing, life is going to get complicated, and for Malinda, she’s trapped with no way out.

My Review

I received an advance copy of this book as a beta reader.

I have read this entire series and I consider it an indulgence of mine. These books are full of sex but that’s not why I read them. There’s something about a group of bikers who take care of each other and their families that intrigues me. Lila Rose’s writing also flows well and these books are a quick, fun read.

In No Way Out, all of the same characters are back, but if you haven’t read the previous books, this one does stand on its own. When one of their members is killed, they find out that he had a wife and two kids that no one knew about. They take her into their fold and it’s soon obvious that Stoke has fallen for her.

The characters in this series are great. They are each unique in their own way, especially the women. Some of them, like Malinda’s next door neighbor, are hilarious. 

No Way Out is full of suspense and sex. If you like an erotic, suspenseful book, this one is for you!


Book Review: Black Out by Lila Rose

   Today is also the Cover Reveal for Black Out

12-2-2014 6-59-50 AMTitle: Black Out (Hawks MC Series, Book 3)

Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  December 22, 2014

DescriptionAt twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents’ death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.

Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life, she realizes it’s possible to experience the joy of warmth. In her darkness, Blue will become her beacon, her guide. Little does she know that she’ll need to count on Blue more than she thought she would.

She has to…if she wants to stay alive.

Blue Skies is on the lookout for a woman. Always there to support his brothers, Talon and Griz, he’s not a stranger to the craziness of love or life. Nor is he a stranger to making it clear that comments surrounding his name are out of bounds. Despite the often effed-up situations his brothers find themselves in as a result of their women, he’s more than happy to settle down when he finds his missing piece.

After three weeks of seeing a gorgeous redhead in a café, he refuses to let the opportunity pass him by. Building a tentative relationship with Clary is no easy task; she’s damaged. It’s not until he discovers the truth behind her darkness that he willing lays claim to her. He is determined to protect her, no matter the cost. She is irrefutably his.


I received an ARC of this book as a beta reader.

This is the third book in the Hawks MC Series and my favorite one so far. It has more substance to it than the last book did. Clary is blind, lives with an evil sister, witnessed her parents’ death, and her only lifeline is meeting Julian and Deanna (a couple members of the girls club which mostly consists of the bikers’ women) at the library.

The characters are all unique and you can’t help but love ’em. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside. They would do anything for their women and anything to keep them safe. They take Clary under their wings to keep her safe even before she and Blue get together. Once they are together, he makes it clear that she will always be safe with him and that she will always be his.

I love Lila Rose’s sense of humor! I giggled a lot, laughed out loud (at work) once, and laughed until I cried once.

I recommend Black Out as long as you don’t mind swearing and there are some explicit sex scenes. 


About the Author:

Lila author picI was born in Brisbane, Australia. My step-dad was in the Army, which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age. Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wroteSenseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon I was back to the Hawks series with number two Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance, which is out now.

Book Review: Climbing Out by Lila Rose


18717645Title: Climbing Out (Hawks Motorcycle Club #2)

Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  May 27, 2014

DescriptionDeanna Drake has a past she longs to forget, but won’t ever be able to. She’s always been the tough one. No one, but her best friend Zara has ever been able to penetrate her cold, hard, shell.

Until Griz

Griz— a.k.a Grady Daniels, Hawks Motorcycle Club second in command, also has a past that he wishes he could undo…all except one part. 

It’s her past that brings them together. Only will it be forever?


I received an advance copy of this book as a beta reader.

Another  fun and quick read! Climbing Out is full of sex and humor with a little suspense on the side.

I like Lila Rose’s unique characters. The main character, Deanna, has a mouth that would make a sailor cringe. She matures a lot in this book, though, when she falls for Griz and his daughter. Deanna’s best friend, who was the main character in the first book in this series, is very pregnant and very happy. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside.

This book had more violence than the first in the series and less suspense. Lila Rose still kept most of it pretty light with her sense of humor.

I recommend Climbing Out as long as you don’t mind swearing and if you enjoy steamy scenes.


Review: Holding Out by Lila Rose


10-22-2013 7-29-51 PMTitle: Holding Out

Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  December 2013

Description: Zara Edgingway is a twenty-six-year-old secretary. She has a daughter that apparently knows-it-all and a best friend that could possibly have the mouth of Satan, but she’s been with her through hell and back. Then there’s the hunk’a’licious biker neighbour finally showing interest in her.
If only she isn’t about to face her next obstacle in life, the one she ran from six years ago: her ex husband.

Talon Marcus is the president of the Hawks Motorcycle Club. For two years he’s had his eye on the quiet, reclusive, yet sassy, neighbour Zara. Finally, he has the chance to claim her as his woman. Just when her past catches up with her, she’ll need, not only his protection, but the help from his biker brothers.
Now, if only she’d stop fighting him along the way.

What a fun and quick read! Holding Out is full of suspense and Lila Rose has a great sense of humor.

The characters are each unique in their own way. The main character, Zara, is probably the most “normal” of the bunch. Her best friend has a mouth that would make a sailor cringe. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside.

Even though there is some serious stuff going on in the story, Lila Rose keeps it light with her humor.

I recommend Holding Out as long as you don’t mind swearing. There is a lot but, since bikers play a big part, it does make it more realistic.
