    1 5 stars HOLY HELL ON A CRACKER I CAN T WITH THIS BOOK WHAT DID I JUST READ this will spoil the cough story so don t read if you want to pick this one up I must be a sadist Not only did I pick this book up, I actually finished this horrifying mess This has to be one of the worst written books I have read in a long time, the style was juvenile and the plot was ridiculous And not the fun kind of ridiculous, it was just plain unbelievable I was crying real tears of pain with this one.Zara 1 5 stars HOLY HELL ON A CRACKER I CAN T WITH THIS BOOK WHAT DID I JUST READ this will spoil the cough story so don t read if you want to pick this one up I must be a sadist Not only did I pick this book up, I actually finished this horrifying mess This has to be one of the worst written books I have read in a long time, the style was juvenile and the plot was ridiculous And not the fun kind of ridiculous, it was just plain unbelievable I was crying real tears of pain with this one.Zara has been on the run from her abusive husband for six years with her best friend Deanna and daughter She ends up moving in next to a MC compound where she catches the eye of the MC s President, Talon Talon watches Zara for two years before making his move and that s where the book starts Talon makes his move and within the first day he is basically living with her and they re playing happy families The only drama that comes form this story are two different kidnappings in the same fraking day by two different people There were things thrown in right, left and centre to create some cheap shock value which didn t work, I was just rolling my eyes the entire time and plot holes galore Then add in the random sluts always after Talon, Zara being an immature and brainless twit and no plot anywhere to be seenyou have the basis of this book There is of course the standard ex wife girlfriend drama, which is conveniently ended when Talon and Zara storm her house and catch her on film in the middle of an orgy with her child upstairs I honestly am flabbergasted at what I just read And confused, real bloody confused I m just gonna leave it at that because I don t even know what else to say

    2 Stars I am a definite sucker for MC booksbut unfortunately this one just didn t work for me It felt like a Saturday Night Live version of a MC bookalmost like a parody of sorts IDK I found it sillythan anything I m all for humor in my books and love some good banter but this was just OTT and eye roll inducing It followed the typical MC storyline Troubled heroine Zara running from her abusive past with her 6 year old daughter in tow This one also included a mouthy best 2 Stars I am a definite sucker for MC booksbut unfortunately this one just didn t work for me It felt like a Saturday Night Live version of a MC bookalmost like a parody of sorts IDK I found it sillythan anything I m all for humor in my books and love some good banter but this was just OTT and eye roll inducing It followed the typical MC storyline Troubled heroine Zara running from her abusive past with her 6 year old daughter in tow This one also included a mouthy best friend and a gay brother and his partner.Zara just happens to live across the street from the Hawk Motorcycle Club headquarters where Talon, our hero, is the current Pres For two years Talon and Zara don t speak but one day when she s walking home he decides to talk to her and make her his woman.I m pretty sure the whole book takes place over about 3 4 days MAX Why Talon never talked to Zara before now is beyond me I think it was the sheer volume of things that happened over those 3 4 days that was so shocking I just couldn t get over view spoiler The insta love between Talon and Zara The fact that the brother found her so quickly after being gone for 6 years The whole situation regarding her parents death He brother s gay partner showing up and finding them just as qucikly Violet and Talon being brother sister The whole fake kidnapping involving the swim lesson lady hide spoiler And of course, in typical MC fashion the ex comes back IDKeverything was just too unrealistic Too many coincidences It was just too much Too quick Too silly Too juvenile I didn t get Talon and Zara s connection or the story at all Moving on

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here An Aussie Biker Tale 3.5 StarsOnce upon a time there was a young woman named Zara who got very cranky at a biker named Talon because he was playing his music too loud Talon thought it was amusing to see this little kitten yelling at him, President of the Hawks Motorcycle Club, dressed in her nightie and cammo boots Zara, didn t find it so amusing, but she also couldn t help but notice that this guy she was cranky at, was one smoking hot man A long flirtation started after that night, but it w An Aussie Biker Tale 3.5 StarsOnce upon a time there was a young woman named Zara who got very cranky at a biker named Talon because he was playing his music too loud Talon thought it was amusing to see this little kitten yelling at him, President of the Hawks Motorcycle Club, dressed in her nightie and cammo boots Zara, didn t find it so amusing, but she also couldn t help but notice that this guy she was cranky at, was one smoking hot man A long flirtation started after that night, but it wasn t until Zara and her daughter Maya s life was in danger that Talon claimed his woman.I enjoyed this story set in Ballarat Australia I m an Aussie, so I understood the slang and the terms used by the characters, but I could imagine that an overseas person would probably struggle with some of the terms Our heroine was not a fan of foul language being used around her daughter good for her so some made up words helped to get her frustrations out I can honestly say though that if I read the word fandola onetime, my kindle may have a shorter life than what I planned for it Fandola was Zara s term for her lady bits I didn t think it was funny and I m not sure where the author came up with it Zara s goofy talk was funny at first, but got a little tiresome as the story progressed.The storyline revolves around Zara s escape from her psycho, abusive ex husband that she is on the run from When Talon finds out the full story of the abuse Zara had received, he makes it his and his clubs mission to protect her and her loved ones in case he returns We do see some violence towards the end of the book which was quite graphic, but it didn t phase me too much as I have read biker books before The Hawks MC is not the main part of this story, but we are given enough information to know that they don t dabble in illegal stuff.Zara has known Talon for 2 years before they are together, so she has seen the women he has entertained in that time There is one scene that Zara walks in on, between Talon and another woman, but it wasn t what it seemed Even though it didn t excuse Talon s behaviour his regret and remorse is obvious and I was able to get over it.Overall I enjoyed it and had a few good laughs, but I could tell that it would not suit all The humour is a little OTT Zara is a little too goofy, Talon is a little too sweet for a biker president, her best friend is a little too mouthy, her brother s boyfriend a little too flamboyant and her Mum is a little too zaney Luckily I was in the mood for a little bit of this and a little bit of that so it worked out okay for me Thanks Lila Rose for the gifted copy of Holding Out to read and review This review andcan be found at

    30% and slapping this as a DNF unbelievable ,unrealisticandridiculousI don t mind some humor in MC but this one was awkward and forced I felt like throwing up.But what really bothers me is the heroine she s a fuckin airhead I m guessing the author is trying to make her look cute witty down to earth nice likeable but can I just say that she is dumb as fuck Seriously Reading her thoughts makes me feel stupid Her character felt wrong in so many levels.

Brother s boyfriend shows up, Talon moves in Women hit on Talon, Zara gets jealous And the book just continues to progress in a painful facsimile cliche of other mc romances currently being published Was almost a DNF, but I powered thru Barely

    Oh WOW Holding Out by Lila Rose was AMAZING It was the breath of fresh air that I didn t know I needed Zara is a single mother, and lives across the road from the Hawks Motorcycle Club s compound She has a six year old daughter, Maya, and her best friend Deanna is a constant presence in her life Zara is a fun character, with her wit and humor I easily connected with her, and her inner monologue was fantastic Talon is the leader of the Hawks Motorcycle Club He s hot as hell and a definite Oh WOW Holding Out by Lila Rose was AMAZING It was the breath of fresh air that I didn t know I needed Zara is a single mother, and lives across the road from the Hawks Motorcycle Club s compound She has a six year old daughter, Maya, and her best friend Deanna is a constant presence in her life Zara is a fun character, with her wit and humor I easily connected with her, and her inner monologue was fantastic Talon is the leader of the Hawks Motorcycle Club He s hot as hell and a definite alpha male He s had his eye on Zara ever since she went over to the compound in her pajamas to ask them to turn the music down When Talon and Zara finally get their acts together, we get to see a softer,caring side to Talon, although he s still all alpha When Zara s brother, Matthew, shows up at her house one night, her terrible past isn t all that far behind Zara has to learn to trust Talon and his club and accept their protection in order to save herself, her family and friends, and her relationship with Talon.Lila Rose has blown me away with her debut novel I loved her writing style, and all the inner monologue that was going on I felt it gave me a deeper insight to who Zara was And it was humorous Literally laugh out loud funny Her characters were well developed and extremely lovable They were easy to connect with, and they felt REAL I loved how Zara was a real woman, and not a stick figure To sum things up, Holding Out by Lila Rose is a cross between Bella Jewel s The MC Sinners series and Stacey Wallace Benefiel s Crossing, with Dani s inner monologue.I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review
