Review - Making The Cut By SD Hildreth

Determined to remove herself from the rules and regulations of her overbearing religious parents, Avery escapes to college and is determined to make it on her own. Working as a bartender, and mere weeks before her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with thirty members of an Outlaw Motorcycle Club.  

She had no idea when the President of the club walked in she'd go weak in the knees for the gorgeous tattooed biker. 

Axton (aka Slice) is the President of the Selected Sinners MC. At the onset of a huge gun deal with a notorious prison gang, he has no time or desire to have a woman in his life.   Abused by his Hell's Angel father as a child, and wronged by every woman in his past, Axton has one devotion - the MC. 

After finding out he needs Avery's Criminal Justice education and her linguistic skills to assist in making the gun deal a success, Axton reluctantly approaches her to act as his interpreter. 

Hoping to win Axton over, Avery attempts to turn off her smart mouth, turn on her charm, and become his woman of interest; even if it means sacrificing a level of independence she's grown accustomed to. 

But when the gun deal goes to hell in an hand basket, both Avery and Axton are left wondering what their next move may be.

Cambio “Toad” Todelli is the Sergeant at Arms for the Selected Sinners MC. He is gorgeous, caring, loyal and a broken inside. He spent his time as a marine and now finds himself embracing the brotherhood and familial feelings the Sinners provides him. Toad sifferes from PTSD and will not allow himself to get close to a female. He likes sex and lots of it, without an emotional connection. Sydney Shepard has no one. She is homeless, without a job, money, and living in her car. She finds herself in a bad situation and is rescued by an unlikely person. She has not had much luck in her life, but will all that change? Can a broken biker and women with nothing get a chance at happiness? With they take solace in one another and create a bond unlike any other or will their pasts comes back to haunt them?

After reading, Making the Cut, I could not wait to dive into this book and learn more about Cambio “Toad” Todelli. He is a character that is easy to fall in love with and will leave you wanting more. Sydney has had a rough life and you can’t help but cheer for her and hope she finds some peace and happiness. Both of these characters are endearing, strong willed, determined and need each other to feel whole.

Scott did not disappoint with this book. I have always been a fan of his writing and this book was written as fabulously as the others. This story captivates you and sucks you in. For me it was a quick read that I devoured in one sitting. I could not put it down. I like the fact that that Scott is able to write an MC series and humanize his characters. You get to see and feel real emotions and feelings from them. The secondary characters in this book, particularly Otis were amazing! I am hoping we see more from in the near future. The only question I was left with was what happened to Sydney’s brother? I wish we had more to that part of the story. For me this book was a 5 star read and I would highly recommend it to others.

Book Two in the Consolation Duet
I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he’s gone.

He doesn’t understand and I can’t make him.

If only he’d see the conviction behind my words—then he’d still be here.

Excerpt #1

Time isn’t something I ever thought much about.
It ebbs and flows, but it never changes. I can’t make it stop—no matter how much I want to. There’s no way to rewind the clock or halt it. In this moment, all I want is to make the world stop and go back to when I was happy and ready to tackle the world. Just two short minutes ago, there was no worry about how my day would go. I was going away with the man I love, the one who healed me. But time isn’t my friend. It slaps me in the face and laughs as I stand here wondering how the hell any of this is happening. I don’t want to move forward, and I sure as hell don’t want to slow it down.

Excerpt #2

His voice is thick and husky as he refuses to break from my eyes. “Tell me you’re real.”
“I’m real.”
“Tell me you’re really here.”
“I’m here with you.” My hand rises, and I press my thumb to his lips. “I’m here for you. I’m here with only you. I need you so much.”
His eyes close as I rub my thumb, savoring the rough feel on my skin.
“Stay with me,” he pleads.
Liam’s hands rest on each side of my face as I drag him down further. “There’s nowhere else I want to be.” Our lips meet, and I lose myself.

Book one left me sitting on a cliff and cursing Corinne for leaving me hanging the way she did. I was lucky enough to get an advanced reader copy of this book. In book one; Natalie loses her husband Aaron while he is overseas on a mission. His best friend Liam becomes her rock, support, and friend and eventually they fall in love. Book one ends with Liam coming back from a mission. With him is Aaron, Natalie’s presumed deceased husband. You can imagine the shock that left Natalie, Liam and the reader in. Will Natalie and Aaron reconnect and continue their marriage. Will Liam try and be a bigger man and walk away from his love or Natalie? Will Natalie and Liam fight for one another and continue building what they had started?

I have read all of Corinne’s books and let me just say, this one was my favorite for a few reasons. It was jam packed with emotions. I was up and down and all over the place. I needed Kleenex, alcoholic beverages and several hugs to get through this one. Corinne did a fantastic job at making you feel each and every emotion each character was going through. I laughed, cried, got frustrated, and angry right along with the characters. I love a book with angst and this book has it in spades! It was so very well written and I love the way the story came together. I could not put the book down. Liam is the ultimate book boyfriend and creeped his way into my top ten for sure. He is sexy, loyal, charming, loves fiercely, and quite funny at times. Natalie makes a great female lead also. She is not weak, she is determined and quite sassy.

I was on a journey for sure with this story and I absolutely loved that journey! Overall I loved the book and can’t wait to see what is next from Corinne! I would highly recommend this book to anyone and happily give it five stars!

But there’s a fine line between justice and obsession. As I turn up old crimes and new lies, I know that I’m playing with fire—and risking the very foundations of our relationship. My love for Chloe is absolute. I just hope it’s enough to save us both.

Author Bio

Amazon best-selling author, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, mom of three, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse.

Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre, “Romance for Real Life,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”). More recently she is garnering even more fans across genres with her latest novels, which are more character-driven fiction, while remaining very much “real life.”

With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.

Don’t ever ask her for anything “like a Budweiser” or risk bodily injury.
