Angel Warriors MC trilogy by Dawn Martens
Several months ago, I saw Unkiss Me by Dawn Martens. Now, I’d read her work with Emily Minton and I’ve loved it. So I thought, what the heck, and I purchased it. Before I even started reading it, I happen to stumble onto a post, or it may have been a review, or even a warning posted by Dawn herself that this was book 1 of 3, and it would continue. I love reading and I don’t get to do it much anymore because of my own writing commitments but I wasn’t going to start something that didn’t have an end date in site.
I waited. I waited some more. Untouch Me was released, so I thought, okay, I’ll buy it, and put it aside with the other book. I went and checked out Dawn’s Facebook page, and thought, no she won’t want to friend me, so I left it. Then a couple more weeks passed, and I just pressed the button on the friend request.
Believe me, I was surprised when she friended me. Anyway, skip a few weeks ahead, she sent me an ARC of, Unbreak This Heart, the third and final instalment in the series, and I promised to sit down, read all three, and then post a review close if not on her release day.
My thoughts, and this is done in a way not to spoil anything.
Wow. Okay. Holy Shit. No, he didn’t. This is really good. I knew it. Sniffles. What the fuck did he just do? Okay, erm, it ended. Shit.
Oh, I’ve got book two.
Oh no. The cheating bastard. Okay, so he’s not really cheating, sniffles. She’s going to be so hurt. They’re back on, okay. Need a break. Tears. I can’t handle this. Oh shit, that is awful. No, he has no right. Crap, what the hell is going on. Who is doing this. Even more tears, end of book two.
Now, I’ve got book three.
They’re so sweet together. I love him. I love her. What the hell is going on? Why is he changing? Crap, he didn’t just do that! This is hard. Break time. Okay, I need to read this. Diving back in, and crap, this is, oh no. Phew, see asshole, you should have looked closer. That’s right, you go girl. What, no, no, no, no, no. It can’t be. Please, please, please, please, that ending is…..I’m not talking to Dawn Martens again.
As you can see without hopefully causing any spoilers, this series is one big, rollercoaster ride of emotion, heartache, pain, and just about the harshest luck ever. However, this is a captivating series, and I will saw to anyone who has all three books, read them back to back, in one sitting. Honestly, it heightens the reading experience, and it leaves you so raw. It took me a couple of days to even think of a way I would post this review. Now, I hated and loved the ending with equal measure, but it’s perfect.
You will probably hate it to start off with, and it will piss you off. When you come away, you will see that even though you’ll hate but love it, the ending is necessary. It’s bittersweet, and above all, it’s real.
I loved this series, and it has stayed with me, after the last week, and it has taken me that long to write a review that I hope does it justice.
After spending years suffering abuse at the hands of her father and protecting her baby sister, Eden Blake takes a chance. She calls on the Angels Warriors MC asking for protection just months before her father is to be released from prison. She never expected that call would bring her face to face with her past.
Jasper ‘Angel’ Hughes, President of the Angels Warriors MC, battled his way to the top. He fought his way through hell, cleaning up the mess that was once Satan’s Law MC. Wanting to serve a better purpose in life he took on the role of child protector. Protecting them from their hellish lives and getting them away from their abusers. When he gets the call to protect Eden, the first girl he ever loved, he vows to win her back and never let her go again.
But when a new secret comes to light that Eden was hiding, will they get their Happily Ever After?
The truth always comes out, no matter how deep you try to bury it. Secrets never make their way to the grave.
Lilly Mayer has always lived a simple life. She’s loyal—maybe too loyal since faithfulness cost her the love of her life. Keeping Eden’s whereabouts a secret from everyone, including Vinny, has ripped away Lilly’s future.
Vincent “Zippo” Torino knows he’s a goddamn bastard. And he’s willing to use Lilly’s loyalty to Eden as his own escape from a hell he created. He doesn’t give a damn that he’s leaving the woman pregnant with his child behind—not when he has to protect his own destructive secret. And not when he’s sure she’s going to beat him to the punch and leave first.
As the dangers to the club escalate, nobody’s hearts—or lives—are safe.
After she’s betrayed by her husband, Hilary DeVaughn is done. She can’t and won’t stay in a town where so many bad memories haunt her. Years later, she gets a phone call to come back home for Eden, so she drops everything to return to the place where her heart was shattered. Deciding it’s time to completely let go, she hands Mason divorce papers.
Mason “Reaper” Harris has always loved Hilary, but that love quickly fell apart when she slept with another man – or so he thinks. Then Hilary returns, along with her demands for a divorce again. He realizes that, even though he’s still furious with her for ruining their relationship, he refuses to let her go.
In this conclusion to the Angels Warriors MC Trilogy – will Angel, Zippo, and Reaper get their women back and finally have their happily ever afters? Or will these couples be forever broken? They all had secrets, some more destructive than others, but will their love be enough to make things right? Or will those secrets tear their hearts – and lives – to shreds?
