Blog Tour: Sleepless Nights by Amanda Heath

I’ve been living two lives for the past seven years.
One with Victor and the other with Damien.

Victor I’ve known all my life. When his parents died he even came to live with my family and I. I was so in love with him. It wasn’t until years into our relationship I started to see the faults in him. Then he went off to Iraq.

Damien was the bad boy biker at our high school. Even while I was with Victor, I couldn’t keep my eyes off of him. Then I got on the back of his bike and I thought I finally found my home. Then Victor came back wounded.

That was all five years ago and now those two lives and my two loves are starting to converge. I don’t know who I am anymore and I don’t know who I want to be with. Though these two guys won’t let me be single for long.

But one of them has gotten me into a lot of trouble with the mob. And now it’s up to the other one to save me. And before you roll your eyes, that statement isn’t what you think. You’ll be surprised who the bad guy really is.

I promise to find my happily ever after, even if it’s at the Wrath MC clubhouse in the arms of an alpha biker or in the high society world where I was born and in the arms of my ex-army man.

4.5 Smoldering, Angsty Stars!

Review by Lisa Kane

I love Amanda Heath's Make or Break series and this new one, the first of her Wrath MC series, is just as good! 

We are somewhat familiar with Ashley and Victor from the Make or Break series. Ashley is Donovan, Courtney and Channing's sister. She and Victor have been on/off again for years. Most of their problems can be blamed on Annabella, Victor's sister. She has schemed her way through Ashley's entire family, creating havoc and Victor has done too little too late to reign her in.

In this story, they have been broken up for the a few years. Ashley is a veterinarian and has one scary, hot looking visitor come to her workplace. It's Storm one of Damian's MC brothers. This is our first mention of Damian and his relationship with Ashley. In a series of flashbacks we find out that these two have had history with one another since high school. His father is Blade, the Prez of the Wrath MC. During one of Victor's deployments to Afghanistan, Ashley realized she didn't want to be with him anymore. Meanwhile, Damian has been flirting with her, not knowing she had a boyfriend. Once he finds that out, he may want her, but cheating is a hard No for him.

Eventually Ashley lets Victor know via a letter that she is done with him putting her second. She knows he went into the Army to be with his friend Talon, without any thought to her at all. Who does that? Not to mention, he left Ashley to babysit Annabella and her crazy ass. They may have had amazing sex, but they have very little else. Ashley has held back on confiding an important fact from him. She always thought if he found out, he would leave her. But she finally believes she is special, someone that deserves to be put first in a relationship. If she waits to tell him in person or via Skype, he will try to talk her out of this. So break up by way of a letter. Once Damian finds out that Ashley is now single, it's  game on!

These two settle into a relationship; Damian thinks of her as his old lady. Knowing that Victor is coming home soon and will be pressuring her to come back to him, Ashley tells Damian in a drunken stupor that she wants them to marry. Knowing there is no way he is letting soldier boy get her back, he follows through and the two are man and wife.

But when Victor comes back, severely injured, Ashley wants to go see him, to make sure he is okay. She may not be in love with him anymore, but they were together for years, Unfortunately, Damian does not see things that clearly. If she goes, he will be gone. And that was pretty much the end of them.

Over the years Ashley tried to get him to talk to her, he refused. After a long time had passed, she went back with Victor. She tries to get a divorce from Damian, but he won't budge. Victor has been running some games with Talon, making enemies in high places and is putting Ashley and her family in the crossfire.

Now five years later, Ashley is being held by the MC over Victor and Talon's actions. Victor is into some bad things and is spiraling out of control. The story is told from Ashley, Damian and Victor's POV's and boy does Victor have secrets. Secrets that made me hate his character. He was a control freak with Ashley, and demanded so much of her but he was a total liar about everything going on in his life. Was he always this selfish or did losing Ashley cause him to really lose it?
Damian has never gotten over Ashley. No amount of booze or club whores could change that and now that she is back, he isn't going to let her go so easily. He even brings her dog to the club so she has him close by. This guy may have screwed up royally, but it is so obvious he loves her. But there are so many complications in their life, how can it work out? Do they even want to risk their hearts again? Caught between both men, who will Ashley choose? 

I loved this book and am thrilled that Amanda Heath has a whole new cast of characters with their upcoming stories. This one has the mob, hot bikers, tons of steam, great humor and dialogue and is quick moving! And this one's epilogue-  *sighs*

“God you feel so fuckin’ good,” I mutter as my hands go down to remove her shirt. Or should I say my shirt. Her tits bounce as I move her backwards once I drop the shirt to the ground.
I don’t waste time as I lay her back on our bed; I push the cup of her bra down and suck a nipple into my mouth. Ashley arches her back and groans out my name. I push my hand into her pants and since she’s not wearin’ underwear, my hand meets hot, wet skin. “Fuckin’ wet for me already,” I growl out, lovin’ how turned on she is with just a few kisses. “Gonna fuck this tight, wet pussy.”
“Fuck…” she trails off as I pump two fingers into her and use my thumb to circle around her clit. When she’s on the edge of comin’, I remove my hand and pull her jeans off. As I stand I take my own off and remove my shirt.
Once I’m naked I climb back over her on the bed and thrust my cock into her. My favorite part, even back in the day, is when her eyes get all wide at my size. A man could get real arrogant fuckin’ Ashley. “You like this big cock fuckin’ you?” I whisper against her ear as I slowly pump my hips into her.
“You know I do,” she whimpers as I start to pick up my pace.
“Best pussy I ever had. Swear to God.” I don’t know what it is about her but I can’t stop talkin’ like a dirty freak when we fuck. I think it’s cuz she always looks surprised and it makes her wetter.
Her hands are everywhere. In my hair, down my neck, over my shoulders and her nails diggin’ into my ass as she urges me on. I stare down at her, as I do every time, because it’s so fuckin’ beautiful when she gets off. I might have started callin’ her Glossy because of what she was doin’ when I first saw her, but I have other reasons for keepin’ it. Like how her eyes get that way right before she comes. Or how my cock looks after I pull it out of her.
I’m not picky though.
I live in southern Arkansas with my husband and young daughter. There is also an insane Boston Terrier running around. I've always been a lone wolf and find my friends in books. I started writing at a young age and I haven't stopped since. Most days you can find me either glued to my laptop or my kindle. My first novel, This Beautiful Thing was an Amazon best seller for 11 weeks and a year later I'm still tickled to see people enjoy it. I may not be a huge seller but I have the best fans ever and I thank God everyday for every single one of them.
