CHANGES & MERGER

Hello! I'm currently in the process of merging my 3 sites to make it easier for me to keep everything up.

So all book tours that have a ROMANCE title will be posted to the new site instead of here on Booksniffer Book Reviews. All non-romance titles will still be posted here.

Those posts can be found here: http://loveineverypage.weebly.com/

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but it'll be better in the long run.

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can't be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah 'Sass' Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a 'normal' life, she has settled. She's committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She's found a way to be content.

Things aren't always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it's still a hollow shell.

He's a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He's Frank the 'Tank' Oleander, Haywood's Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he's forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he's holding onto. The coma he can't pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She's sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?



THE GIST: Sass wants a normal life away from the Hellions MC that she grew up with and the man she felt rejected her. Tank is in a coma, unable to wake up but completely aware, after dealing with Delatorre. Sass quickly learns that the normal life she wanted may not be as good as it seemed, and Tank (when he awakes) realizes that he needs to fight for the woman he loves, before he loses her completely.

WHAT I LIKED: What I liked the most about FOREVER RIDE was actually Tank himself. I loved his determination and his outright love and devotion. Oh, I also loved the back story of how Tank came to be in the Hellions MC. I also like seeing all the people from the first book back in this one. There were definitely some twists that I wasn't expecting, and the end of Sass' and Tank's was really nice. I also liked the life speeches that were motorcycle related - the road, the journey, etc. They may seem kind of cheesy while reading, but afterward I was left with a smile on my face.

WHAT I DISLIKED: While I loved Tank in this story, Sass really annoyed me. She was the definition of a doormat in FOREVER RIDE. She was so strong and confident in the first book, and then in this one she just wasn't. I understand the journey she was on and even a little about how she felt, but that is no reason for her to have allowed Nick to do what he did to her. I just wanted to scream at her to get her act together. I cannot stand heroine like this. There were times that it just got to be too much and I had to take a break. After reading Sass' POV, I really looked forward to Tank's afterward. That's really the only thing I didn't like about FOREVER RIDE, the weak heroine. Although she does get her act together by the end - that's the redeeming quality.



Sass: Wants a normal life outside the MC. Lives with her boyfriend Nick. Slowly starts losing who she it as Nick becomes more controlling. Still loves Tank, still visits his bedside, but also keeps a distance between them, since he's a part of the life she wants out of. She makes Nick her priority, but soon realizes that may not have been a good idea.

Tank: In a coma after the take down of Delatorre. While he can't wake up, he is completely aware. In this state, he reflects on his life up to this current point. He realizes how much he really loves Sass, and is determined to fight for her.

Nick: Sass' pretty-boy boyfriend. He was caring in the beginning but his true color quickly began showing when he asked Sass to make him her priority.

Doll: Sass' best friend. Understands Sass' reason and has her back. But she can't help feeling something isn't right.

Tripp: Doll's husband and Tank's friend.



FOREVER RIDE's villain is none other than Nick, Sass' pretty-boy boyfriend. He basically lured her in by pretending to be this loving a caring guy, but he had his own purposes and agenda. He asks, or more like demands, Sass to make him her priority and uses her reasons for leaving the MC against her to isolate herself from her friends and family. I don't want to say anymore about their situations, because it'll give something away, so you'll just need to read the book to get the full situations and the repercussions.



I don't count what happened between Sass and Nick to be a romance, so this is the only time he'll be mentioned in this section.

So in the first book, One Ride, we learn that happened between Sass and Tank after the barbeque (which is revisited in this book, but with more detail), and that is what finally lit the fuel for Sass' reason for wanting a normal life. Basically, she's been in love with Tank for a while, they had a night together, then he treated her like one of the club whores. It's not until afterTank's accident during the Delatorre take down that he realizes his true feeling for her in return, but now she's moved on with Nick. So he's got a fight on his hands if he wants to win her back.

You really see how much Tank really loves Sass by how hard he fights for her, even as she's trying to push him away. Not only that, but when he sees how she's living now with Nick and how the fire has gone out of her eyes, it nearly destroys him, but it also fuels his determination to make her realize that that life is not what she truly wants. 

My favorite line is "I love you, Button, with every beat of my heart." Which is literally the truth.

I was really disappointed with Sass in this whole book. I was just glad when she finally got her act together and realized that she really wanted to be with Tank the whole time.

~Sass~  

Climbing off the bike, my legs are unsteady.

“Button, you don’t have to stay here with him. You know that, right?”  

“Tank, it’s complicated,” I remind him.

“So you keep sayin’, but the way I see it, you can’t be you here. The fancy car, big house, stiff clothes, and boring hair… that shit ain’t you. Button, you gotta live life.”  

“I’m safe living here with Nick. The Hellions aren’t safe. You, for one, should see that.”

“What I see is family. What I see is you’re afraid. You once called me out about being afraid of commitment. Well, Button, you’re full of fear, too. Fear of the unknown. There was a time when you wanted to take chances, to hell with the consequences. What happened?”

“Lots of shit happened throughout my life. The club life, it’s not for me. I’m not strong enough.”

“This is the life you were born into. It’s in your blood. Holding on to me just now, you relaxed into the ride like it was second nature. You know you’re meant for this, and you’re meant for me. Life’s too short, Button.”  

“Tank, just let it go. Just let me go. Please,” I beg him, unsure how much more I can take before I climb back on his bike and let him take me away.

“Roundman once told me to play the cards life deals us. Well, folding is not an option. You’re in my cards. Life placed you in my hand and I’m building my winning play around you. Sort your shit, Button, because I’m not letting go.”  

The tears are building behind my eyes. “Please, give me time. You were gone a long time.”

“I didn’t come here to upset you or force my hand today. I’m gonna go, but I’m not giving up on you.”  

Leaning over to him since he’s still on his bike, I kiss his cheek. “Until next time, Tank.”

“Until next ride, Button,” he responds with a wink as he cranks the bike and then proceeds to pull away, leaving my heart and my life a mess.
