Raisa Greywood-War’s Peace

First, let’s congratulate Raisa on her entry into the world of full time authoring! It’s a big step to make, so yay! Now, let’s talk about her book. War’s Peace is the first book in a new series, the Club Apocalypse series. The series is about 4 military buddies, named after the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse. They have all retired, and now they have an adult resort, Club Apocalypse, that is a very kink friendly hotel and dungeon. We pick up the story with protestors outside, the dungeon empty, and the hotel on the brink of failure. Mark, AKA War, is in charge of the dungeon.

At a morning meeting, Mark and his friends and partners are talking about what they need to do. One of them says that he’s hired a fixer named Kendra. She’s worked for other hotels and resorts and kept them from failing, so she should be able to do the same here. Mark protests that they don’t need anyone to come in and fix their hotel for them, they are doing fine, just fine, and she had better leave his dungeon alone. Needless to say, Mark isn’t coping well with everything going on, including the crazy protestors out front, protesting the “whores” inside their hotel, who don’t exist, but you know, try explaining that to crazy conservatives.

Then, we have Kendra. She isn’t supposed to show up until Monday, but she drives in early. She wants to see what’s really what, not the nice cleaned up bit that the owners generally show her. She checks in, grabs her phone, gets a tour, and starts making notes on her phone. All of a sudden, Mark grabs her phone away from her and tells her that phones aren’t allowed, and didn’t she see the signs? Except, there weren’t any signs, so how could she have seen them?

Anyway, Mark isn’t happy, so he hauls her up to her suite, and then tells her to stay there. But, Kendra isn’t about to take that kind of nonsense from him, so she gets all cleaned up and dressed up and goes to the restaurant, run by Jake, another of the Horsemen. Of course, she runs into Mark there, and boom goes the dynamite.

Kendra and Mark are explosive together, and yeah, sometimes I really thought that there would be actual explosions. They really butted heads a lot, especially in the beginning. I totally get where both of them are coming from. They both have their own control issues and they have problems letting them go. Kendra and Mark both have their own trauma too, which sometimes gets in the way of everything else.

One of the things that I really like about Kendra is that she shows that you can be subby in the bedroom and totally kickass and HBIC outside of it. When she was doing her job, she totally ruled everything, and frankly, I think she might’ve even scared Mark a couple of times. I know that a couple of the other Horsemen worked really hard to stay on her good side. Frankly, I would too. I also like the fact that she wasn’t against experimenting in a lifestyle she hadn’t participated in before, but that she had been interested in.

Mark needed to be smacked sometimes. I understand not liking change and feeling the need to control a situation, especially after having been in a bad situation like, oh, you know, war, and suffering from PTSD and the lack of control that can come from everything. That must be so hard for a Domly type who needs to have that control in his life. But, he has some serious anger issues when it comes to Kendra, in the beginning. I think he felt threatened, threatened made him scared, scared made him angry. Not that he felt Kendra was going to hurt him or anything, but the resort and dungeon, especially the dungeon, is his child. He and his friends literally bled to get the money to buy it. They have put so much work and love into it, and he feels like she’s going to take it, change it, and make it not theirs anymore, and that is what threatens Mark. So, he reacts like a human does, because we all have these brain chemicals and learned reactions, and gets pissed and yells at the person who is threatening him. I think that working with Kendra and then being in a relationship with her will be a really good journey for him.

I can’t wait for the next books in the series. We get a pretty good look at which couples are going to end up as couples, I think, and I’m going to be really happy if I’m proven right.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Black Light: Saved

So, Saved is the extension of Raisa’s story in the latest Black Light Roulette anthology. Here’s where I’m bad and admit I haven’t read everything in the anthology yet. I own it, I just need to remember that I have it. My TBR is ridiculous. Anyway, I can tell you from experience that you can get the thrust of the story without having read Kacy and Jafari’s experience at Roulette. It would definitely be better with that backstory. Hopefully, I’ll remember to read the anthology this weekend, but who knows if my broken memory will work that long. OK, enough of that, let’s get to the story.

We have Kacy and Jafari who met at Roulette and had a connection. Their scenes were super hot, and Kacy loved every bit of it. She wakes up to a phone call to find out that she has to leave LA immediately and make it to Kentucky. There is a family problem, and she has to go rescue her younger cousin from their evil uncle. But, Kacy is broke and living in her car, and she doesn’t have the money to get there, so since she’s sneaking out, she gets into Jafari’s wallet and takes about $500. Jafari is awake, but he’s pretending to be asleep to find out what Kacy is going to do. Kacy leaves the suite they are in, and heads down to her car so that she can get to KY.

As soon as she closes the door, Jafari jumps out of bed and reads the note she left. Then he calls Jaxson and arranges to borrow a car, and oh, by the way, have the guards grab Kacy and stick her in the car to wait for him. He’s decided that he’s going to go to KY with her. He gets Kacy to tell him what the problem is, and then he decides that they are going to fly to KY instead of drive from CA.

The story is that Kacy’s grandmother just died. She’s been taking care of Kacy’s 7 year old cousin, Macie. Macie is now in the custody of their nasty uncle, who likes little girls a little too much. Kacy is rushing there to save Macie from the uncle, lie to the court to get guardianship, and then rush back to CA, where they will both be safe. Of course, Kacy still won’t have a job, and she still won’t have a house, and when she tells Jafari all of that, he arranges for an attorney to meet them in KY, and for her to have a job working as a graphic designer for his winery and for Jaxson. And to help her find an apartment.

I like both Kacy and Jafari. I was really frustrated with both of them more than once. They are both keeping secrets from the other, they don’t talk about them, which they really should. They also don’t communicate their feelings to and about each other very well. That leads to a lot of problems, since they are both making assumptions about what the other person wants and is going to do. All that ever does is hurt yourself and hurt other people. And you might even drag someone who is totally innocent in the middle and hurt them even worse. Like I said, very frustrated with them.

Kacy is very independent and stubborn, and hearing her backstory, I understand why she is that way. It’s hard to ask for help at all, and from her background, asking anyone for help would be a terrible thing to do. She is also very loyal and has a strong protective streak. I think that she is also very loving.

I like Jafari. He has such a wonderful, caring, loving heart. He may be a sadist when it comes to play, but in the rest of his life, he is very careful with people and how he treats them. He doesn’t go out of his way to cause undue harm to people, but he will if need be.

I think that Macie is just a delight. She really just leaves a lot of joy in her wake.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out. Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Breaking Donatella

This is part of the Leave Me Breathless collections. There are 4 collections that make up the Leave Me Breathless books. Go hit up their website to find out about all the collections. Breaking Donatella is part of the Black Rose Collection, which is all about the dark romance, BDSM, suspense, dark sided things that we all know that I love.

So, we have Cristian Moretti. He’s the head of the Moretti mafia family in Italy. They have been at war with the Rossi family for centuries. The current head of the Rossi family is dying, so Cristian has a deal for him. He tells the old man that he will marry his granddaughter, Donatella, and that will let Cristian merge the families and become super-rich and powerful. Old man Rossi says, oh no, you can’t marry my granddaughter, she’s been dead for years. Cristian is all like, yeah, that’s what you think.

Ella Rose wasn’t born Ella Rose, she was born Donatella Rossi, but when she and her mom ran from Italy, she became someone else. Now, she’s an adventure writer and television personality. She does BASE jumping, diving, rock climbing, and, on this occasion, roller derby. She’s fierce, she’s strong, she’s got all kinds of lady balls. She knows her family history, but she figures being on televison and famous will protect her. Besides, who is going to connect a pierced, tattooed woman with a bright pink mohawk to a dead Mafia princess. Cristian, that’s who.

Cristian manages to kidnap Ella, who wakes up naked, with a collar on, in a private airplane. He tells her what’s going to happen, and she attacks him. He shocks her with the shock collar she’s wearing, and then she manages to get the chain of her cuffs around his neck and nearly kills him. Cristian whips her with his belt, she stoically takes it. He asks if she’s ready to say she’s sorry. Ella tells him that she’s sorry that she was gauche enough to not kill him. He shocks her again.

At this point, Cristian’s plan is to keep her prisoner, break her, and have a perfectly submissive wife who will allow him to take over the Rossi family. He also needs heirs, and getting heirs from her will cement his dynasty. All he has to do get her to marry him, willingly, and oh yeah, put this historical Bridal Collar on her. That collar has been put on women from both families, when they are taken as spoils of war, and the only way to take it off is for the women to be beheaded, since it is literally welded on to their neck.

It’s important to note that the best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry, and this is definitely one of those times. When Cristian made all of his grand plans, he didn’t know what Ella was like, and I think that he would’ve made different plans if he did, but maybe not, because he’s kind of a stubborn man. He thinks that he knows best and that everything is going to go the way that he wants.

I love Raisa’s heroines. She writes some of the most amazingly strong female characters. I mean, just fucking kickass women. Women who try to choke you out with the chains on the cuffs you put on them. Women who manage to escape from locked rooms without going through the door. Women who ask you to kill their grandfather as part of their wedding present. I just really love these women that Raisa writes. Now, that doesn’t say that other authors don’t write strong women, because they do, but there’s just something about Raisa’s characters that is just special. And Ella? I have a definite crush on her.

OK, that’s all for this one. Really, you NEED to go check it out. Yeah, there’s some serious dark things that happen in this, but then there’s Ella. Fanfuckingtastic book.

Raisa Greywood-Treats For Lucia

Raisa listened to Daddy and brought us a sweet Halloween Daddy story. It’s part of her Holiday Daddies books, which means we have a new guardian angel as well as a new Daddy and his little girl. I really enjoyed Treats for Lucia, and I really want to see more of Serena.

We start with Serena, who is now a guardian angel, and she has dragged Gabriel into a kink club called Sinners and Saints. Personally, I love the idea of dragging an archangel into a kink club. She’s there on a mission. She needs to check on Lucia and make sure that she’s OK.

Lucia, meanwhile, is not OK. She’s so far from OK that she can’t even see it. She’s reeling from Serena’s death, and can’t manage to get herself back on level footing. In fact, she’s so bad off right now that she’s snuck some vodka into her drink, which is a very strict no-no. Luckily, Serena is there to handle it, and she manages to switch Lucia’s drink with Ryan’s, and he finds out what Lucia is doing.

Ryan is a Dom. And not only is he a Dom, but he’s a Dom that Serena and Lucia trained. The ladies were partners, with Lucia being a switch. He finally finds out exactly how badly Lucia is currently doing, and he’s not going to have it. He drags her out of the club, takes her home, and tells her that either she consents to getting a spanking, or he leaves and tells the club she was drinking on the premises. Lucia decides that she will take the spanking. Later that night, Ryan finds out what Lucia has been hiding and part of why he’s had such a hard time with Serena’s death.

Serena is good. And also, a little scary. In a good way. I wouldn’t want to mess with her. I would, however, count myself lucky if she were my guardian angel. And I love how she handles the angels.

I really sympathised with Lucia. Trying to struggle with figuring out who you are and what you want is never easy. It’s even harder if you think that what you want is something wrong or abnormal, or anything like that. It is a definite struggle, and one that really seems to tear her apart. I really applaud her courage in the steps that she takes in this book.

Ryan is just a damn good man. He may worry that he’s going to screw stuff up, but he has Lucia at the center of everything he does, which means even if he does screw up, he’s going to be able to get it right again. I think that he really is going to be so good for Lucia.

OK, that’s all for this one. No spoilers today, because this is a short one. It’s a really sweet read, and was just what I needed.

Raisa Greywood-Their Wanted Bride

So, Vanesa Vale has a series called Bridgewater. It’s a MFM menage. It takes place in Montana, mostly in the 1880s, but I’m pretty sure that there are contemporary stories too. I’d have to go check, but Amazon is being a PITA for me right now. Anyway, Vanessa has opened up her world a little bit and now there are several new authors stepping in. Their Wanted Bride is the first of those books, and Raisa’s offering to the world. (It’s currently up everywhere but Amazon, because apparently they are being a PITA for everyone).

In this world, there is a small country near Egypt called Mohamir. In that country, it is the custom for 2 men to take the same woman as a bride. Some American men went to Mohamir and fought a war, and liked the idea, so they brought the idea home to Bridgewater, Montana. Now, it’s accepted and expected that every marriage will be 2 men and 1 woman. Into this world come Justin and Caleb.

The guys have been best friends for their entire lives. They’ve gotten up to all kinds of tomfoolery and hijinks, as kids do, when they are kids. As they got older, they discovered the fun of taking a woman together, and then they heard about Bridgewater. Now they have a cattle ranch, and they’ve decided it’s time to take a bride. Or, rather Caleb did, and he convinces Justin to go along, not that he had to work all that hard. He placed an ad in a newspaper that said, among other things, seeking a bride who has her own horse and saddle. Caleb promises that they’ll have a bride by the time the weather turns.

Meanwhile, back in Kentucky, we have Madeline, who is living with her wicked step-mother. Her father died a few months prior, and her step-mother is bound and determined to marry Maddy off. Let me tell you, the evil step-mother is truly evil. She’s caned Maddy so hard that she now has scarring. And she’s working with a nasty scumbag in town to marry Maddy off. Maddy doesn’t know about that until she rides her beloved horse, Prince, into town and the jerk-off tells her that the evil bitch has sold Prince to him and the only way that Maddy can keep the horse is if she marries him. Maddy refuses to do that, and in desparation, looks at the mail order bride ads, and finds one that suits her, in Bridgewater Montana, so she sneaks away and makes her way there.

Maddy has balls of solid titanium. I mean, damn. I think that she is brave, bold, courageous, and strong. She has no problem doing what she thinks is the right thing. She is definitely a Raisa heroine. I really liked her a lot.

I like Justin and Caleb a lot too. They truly care for and cherish Maddy. Not only that, they support her and let her be her. In this case, it means that they understand that she wants to work and that she has skills that can help them out. She’s more than just their wife, she’s also their partner and helpmeet. That’s what Maddy wants to be, and they can see that, even if they would rather have a wife who doesn’t have to do anything and one who would let them take care of everything for her. Very great guys.

OK, that’s all for this one. It’s a quick read, with super sexy cowboys and a woman who keeps them on their toes.

Raisa Greywood-Henry

Once upon a time, Golden Angel had an idea. What about writing about Dad Bod Doms? Well, she ran with it and talked to Raisa Greywood, Maren Smith, and Shane Starett, and they all joined in with her. If you go look at Golden’s book, you’ll see what her husband looks like, since he’s the cover model. Anyway, Henry is Raisa’s addition to the series, and the 2nd book.

Here’s the premise of the books. Logan, Henry, Ray, and Faris are old friends. They are all married and in D/s relationships of some sort. On their annual camping trip, the guys all get to talking, and it turns out that they are all having issues in their marriage and in their life. They make a pact to turn things around, and set up a challenge.

So, let’s talk about Henry and his lovely wife, Natalie. They have been married for almost 20 years, of which about 15 were good. But, in the last few years, things have gotten bad and worse. They were having issues with fertility, and then, as happens with a lot of marriages, they just started drifting apart. They didn’t have sex, they didn’t talk, in fact, they barely even saw each other. Henry was doing a job that he hated, and as part of it made him ignore Natalie too. On his way home from the camping trip, he decided that he would drive straight through and go home instead of stopping overnight somewhere. He got home to find Natalie asleep, so he made love to his wife, because he wants to make everything better.

Meanwhile, Natalie waited until Henry fell asleep, and she left the house. She not only left the house, she left, period. You see, she’s been planning on leaving him for the last few months, and she just wanted one more night in her bed before she left. As part of her leaving Henry, she managed to get a gallery showing for her art. I have to say, I love the gallery owner and her new friends. Everyone needs a queen in their life, and a lot of queens is even better. She’s gearing up for her show when Henry texts her, and she tells him to look at the note she left.

So, we’re going to leave it with Henry having read Natalie’s note that she’s leaving him, and listing out some of the reasons WHY she’s leaving him, and with Natalie getting ready to have a gallery show of her kinky art.

I have to admit that I don’t like Henry for most of the first part of the book. I feel like he knows that there’s a problem but he doesn’t necessarily part of the problem, or maybe not a large part of the problem. He’s really blind and he misses a lot of what’s going on in his world with Natalie, so when he reads the note she left him, he’s kind of blindsided. He does kinda realise that yeah, maybe some of what she said is real, but I think that he’s still really putting a lot of what happened on her versus on both of them. And while I did start to like him a lot more as the book went on, there were times that I still really didn’t like him.

I think that Natalie is incredibly strong and brave. She’s definitely one of those subs who shows that being submissive doesn’t mean weak. She really isn’t weak at all. She has had to put herself back together and recreate herself, and she managed to not only survive, but she thrived. I really liked her a lot. There was one point where I could’ve had an issue with her, but I didn’t, because it makes sense in the story and in their journey.

I love the evidence Henry presents. I laughed uproariously at that one.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check this one and all of the other Dad Bod Doms books, as they come. Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Sexy Scoundrel

Raisa’s Sexy Scoundrel is the second of the Cocky Hero Club books that I’ve got, and today seems like a pretty good day to blog it.

So, here’s our story. We start with Carlina acting as a pastry chef at her ex-boyfriend’s restaurant. The ex who only made it through school with Carli’s help. Now, he’s acting like he’s a kitchen god, except he’s not, and when she tries to rescue their diners from his massive screwup, he starts to fling things at her and fires her, which gets her out of a contract. As she leaves, she walks through the dining room and tells everyone that the fish might be OK. Then she goes home.

Meanwhile Giorgio was at the seating that night, with the woman he was seeing at the time. He got some of the cupcakes that were being served and took them home to his younger brother, Antonio, who said that they were sooooo good he would even eat broccoli, so Gio goes in search of the Carli to make her his chef.

Back at the farm, no really, back at the farm, Carli, who has a huge heart, has been talked into bringing home some animals, namely a camel, a Shire foal, and oh yeah, a lion named Leonard. He used to be on TV as a mystery solving lion. They join her bison, and assorted other animals that he friend has talked her into. Then, Gio and his brother Antonio show up at her house and pretty much all hell breaks loose.

Before I get into anything else, I have to say how much I really love Antonio and really appreciate how well Raisa did with him. He’s got Down Syndrome, and he is very high functioning. The thing that I like about him is that without him, there really is no story. Pretty much every major plot point in the story spins out from Antonio. He’s also really brave, loving, and incredibly fierce. I love how he grows and changes during the story and how successful he is. He has an absolutely huge heart and loves just about everyone, even when they are being yucky. Well, except for that bitch Aunt Proserpina, and I don’t blame him for hating her. I hate her too.

Carli is a collector, she collects people and animals. As you get pulled into her circuit, she just draws you in and you become family. She has such a huge heart. Well, except for Gio. It takes her a long time to let him in. I mean, she agreed to be Antonio’s caregiver, as long as she didn’t have to see Gio. She really wanted to have very little to do with him for a long time. But, pretty much everyone else in the story becomes part of her family and drawn into her circle. I really admire that, and I think that it’s a great trait. She’s also incredibly fierce. One of my favorite lines of her comes when she threatens to strangle a big tough guy with an IV tube if he doesn’t get his boss on the phone immediately. Big tough guy was just a little scared of Carli. She is very definitely a Raisa heroine.

Gio isn’t a bad guy. He has very definite layers. There is the whole layer of jerk playboy that he puts on so that no one bothers him, and then there’s the layer of the actual Gio who loves his brother and who wants to be happy. He’s an idiot at times, but that happens to the best of people, really. He’s generally a good guy though.

lion-3576045_1920

One of the things I really like about Carli is how she is with Sara. Sara got dragged into the situation without her consent, and she is not in good shape, and Carli just accepted her as a friend and loved her.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Raisa Greywood-A Valentine for Chelsea

In a total 180° turn from the book I brought you on Friday, also from Raisa, I bring you A Valentine for Chelsea. This is a Daddy book, and it’s a follow on from her Christmas Daddy book.

We first met Chelsea in Jennifer’s book. She was a neighbor who was married to an abusive asshole. We also met Chelsea’s lovely dog, Princess. Now, months later, Princess is currently living with Jennifer and Kaden, while Chelsea is trying to keep her life together. Her asshole husband has left her and they are divorced, but when they got divorced, he took everything. And when I say everything, he even took the freaking forks. He did, however, leave her with one thing. He left her with a bun in the oven. No one knows how bad it is right now, because Chelsea just can’t tell anyone, for so many reasons. However, Chelsea has a secret weapon. In fact, this weapon is so secret she doesn’t even know about it. She’s got a guardian named Edith. And Edith has a plan.

Her plan is to make sure that Chelsea finds the love of her life. And if that just happens to be Edith’s descendent, Tennyson, then so be it. It’s not like she planned it out that way. Or, you know, used anything to influence it into happening. Totally an accident. And she’s sticking to that story.

I really like Tennyson, and I’m pretty sure his parents actually hate him. It must’ve been hell going through elementary school with his name. Anyway, he is a really caring man. Even if he wasn’t attracted to Chelsea, I’m pretty sure that he would want to help her and get her back on her feet because he’s just that kind of person.

Chelsea is pretty much a younger version of a quintessential old Yankee fart. Those are the old folks who are climbing on their roof in a snowstorm when they are 95 so that they can nail down the tarp. Yes, I’ve met that kinda person. And I think that it works really well for Chelsea. Or well, it doesn’t, but the term is. I think that she is really strong, and stronger than even she knows. She’s had to be, and she’s fought for it.

This was a cute story, very quick, very sweet, and perfect for this time of year.

tools-1209764_1920

As much as I like Tennyson, there is one point where I wanted to smack the fuck out of him. I think that Princess managed to tell him off well enough.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood & Sinistre Ange-Blood Lust

Happy Valentine’s Day! Have I got the perfect book for this lovely fluffy day all filled with pink hearts and kisses. The book is all filled with all the HEAs that you could ever possibly want to have.

Oh wait. That’s not today’s book. Today’s book is Blood Lust from Raisa Greywood and Sinistre Ange. There is not one HEA to be found anywhere in this book. Not one. There are kisses and hearts though. So, close? I guess? There are 3 stories in this book. Sinistre and Raisa each wrote one on their own, and then they wrote one together. And holy fuck, was this anthology great. And dark. And I fucking cussed Golden and Raisa up one side and down the other when I read the last word in this book, because dammit. I’m still all wrapped up in the book, even though I’ve been through some other books since.

Sinistre-Mercy

This is Golden’s solo offering. It imagines that vampires are out of the coffin, and are citizens. Of course there are going to be people who are scared of the undead who walk among them, and there are going to be hate groups. Jillian is one of the people who is dealing with that fear.

Raisa-Claim

In Raisa’s world, humans are basically just enslaved blood slaves. The vamps are in charge, and they will buy, sell, and auction humans. This one is about Chloe, who is a precious O-Neg, and who is up for auction. She doesn’t want to be sold to yet another leach, but what can you do?

Sinistre & Raisa-Vengeance

This story starts in 550 BCE, with a dancing slave being bought by Calmarus and Amedus. The slave’s name was Lyssa, but it gets changed to Orisa. The guys have been a couple, but Orisa becomes the meat in their sandwich. And, as we’re talking about vampires, you may guess that our guys are vamps. Well, things happen, and their lives change, and we get to see some of those changes.

I’m really not spoiling anything when I say that there are no HEAs, since it’s right there in the series name, so don’t yell at me if you read it and don’t find one. If you need that HEA, this is definitely not the book for you. If you like dark, mindfucks, men who may or may not be complete assholes, and a story that is going to stick with you for a good long time, then this is the book for you.

I can’t tell you which one of these stories is my favorite, since I like them all for different reasons, and I think that each of them stands out for different reasons. I do have to say that I was kinda mad when I finished this because I would never be able to read it for the first time again, while still being happy I got to read it.

OK, no spoilers today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Bastard’s New Baby

So, Raisa has walked away from dark and intense for a minute and gave us some short and sassy. Not sweet though. There is some angst and drama, but it’s pretty lowkey, making Bastard’s New Baby a truly enjoyable read.

So, Jackson McKenna is running his family’s business, but he’s being forced into having to get married. The thing is, he really doesn’t want to get married. He’s pretty sure that he won’t ever be able to find the kind of woman he wants to have. You see, he’s a Dom, and he wants to have a woman who is smart and beautiful, but also is kinky AF. As he’s thinking about this, after a night of debauchery, he gets a message from his mom, which he reads while he’s driving, and he nearly runs down a woman.

Meanwhile, we have Siobahn O’Malley (pronounced shhh-vaughn). She lost her sister and brother-in-law in an accident not too long ago, and she’s now been appointed guardian to her baby nephew, Andy. Oh, and his $2mil trust fund. The problem is that she has to keep fighting for custody against Dan’s parents, because they want the trust fund, and not so much the baby. In the tiny town they are in, the inlaws have some pull, and they are managing to keep up at it. Part of the problem is that Siobahn isn’t married, and the evil cow inlaw smears her around the town, to make her look unfit. Today, Siobahn has an important job interview at McKenna, so she dresses to the nines, and gets a ride to town for her interview. As she is crossing the road, she almost gets run down by some idiot who ran a red. Sound familiar?

Jackson really truly earned his name as a bastard, because he totally was. I mean, damn. First, he almost ran Siobahn over, then he accused her of being homeless, and then he tried to apologize, while trying to blackmail her into marrying him. I wasn’t sure if I was going to actually like him for a minute. He had some serious condescension going on. I would’ve smacked the total everloving shit out of him, because he totally deserved it.

I adore Siobahn from the very first time we met her. She’s strong, fierce, protective, and very canny. She’s very smart and she doesn’t let anything slip by her. Jackson tries to put stuff over on her, and she catches him on it. He’s like, oh, I need you for this reason. She’s like newp, try again. I love that she calls him out on stuff. He needs it, because he really is a cocky bastard. He thinks that he is God’s gift to everything, and well, someone needs to tell him that he isn’t.

And Mandy, I loved watching Siobahn knock that bitch back. Mandy really did try to punch out of her weight class.
