***Review - Unsound an Anthology by Chantal Fernando & M.N.Forgy - 4 Stars***


Unsound an anthology 
by Chantal Fernando and M.N. Forgy

Time and Time Again by Chantal Fernando

Blurb - I always thought I had luck on my side.

Things seemed to go in my favour, whether by will or by nature.

But that luck just ran out.

Jobless and on the verge of being homeless, I find a strength in me that I didn’t even know existed and discover an unlikely savior --- Tag.

He avoids commitment like the plague, and starting anything with him will only lead to heartbreak.

I know this.

He knows this.

So why am I still here?

Oh, right. Because I want him more than I want my next breath.

My Review
4 Adorable Stars

Time and Time again is a spin off novella from the Maybe Series, I’ve read the other two books in the series Maybe This Time and This Time Around and LOVED them.

This novella is Tag’s story its super quick but I always wondered when Tag the sex god bartender would get brought to his knees.

I always knew that Tag was a real sweetie but he’s absolutely adorable in this story, he’s the perpetual bad boy player going from girl to girl and I wasn’t sure if he would ever settle down.

Clara is incredible sweet too, she comes across really young and innocent but I liked the backbone she has hidden under all of that niceness lol.

I think this totally could have worked as a full length novel, I would have read it!!!

This story is super short, super sweet and left me gagging for the next book in the series to come out.
Time and Time again gets 4 stars from me.

The Broken Pieces of Us by M.N. Forgy

Blurb - Babs is no stranger to the MC world. As an ol’ lady, she takes the hell that comes with it and dishes it out times two. When things take a turn for the worst, it leaves her questioning just how equipped she is for the hell she lives. She thought her marriage with Locks was it; that she had it all. But the past has a way of sneaking up and tearing life apart. Finding herself trapped as Locks’ ol’ lady, with the threat she will be his till the grave, her world spirals out of control. The only person risking it all to save her is the last person she thought would care: Bull.

President of the Devil’s Dust MC, Bull, is good at running women off and is even better at pissing off his brothers. When he sees the way his vice-president is treating his ol’ lady, he tries to keep his thoughts to himself. The one thing Bull insists on in his club is respect and loyalty: respect for the patch, respect for your brother, and loyalty to the club. However, after finding Babs in a harsh predicament after a run in with Locks, he can’t help but step in. 
Crossing lines and hurdling around life’s unpredictability, will they find refuge in each other or will they have to endure what life gives them?

My Review
4 Soooo Sad Stars

The broken Pieces of Us is a spin off novella from the Devils Dust Series; I love the two books in this series What Doesn’t Destroy Us & The Scars That Define Us. But I have to admit that because I knew what happens to Bull and Babs I was slightly reluctant to read their story.

God this book made me sad!!! Poor Bull and Babs I love that they found each other.

When I read The Scars That Define Us I cried like an idiot and this novella had me welling up as well!!

This is an unconventional love story in a violent and hateful world. I hate that things ended the way they did but I’m also glad that they had each other.

This novella is a great companion to the series as it gives both Bull and Bab’s POV for the whole series so far.

Babs and Bull feel like the mom and dad of the group and all the Biker Boys and Dani and the girls are their kids lol.

Scarlet is only really mentioned in passing so it interesting that Bull reacts the way he does to her. I wonder if she will make an appearance in the next book in the series.

Overall this is a bittersweet story that I liked but that just really made me sad

The Broken Pieces of us gets 4 stars from me.
