I was honored to be chosen to receive a copy of Heather Leigh’s debut novel - Burning Desire, and to have the opportunity to share an honest review. Burning Desire is the first book in the Condemned Angels MC series, and boy let me tell you - it is a raw, dirty, dangerous MC story. As a new author, Heather certainly has brought her A game, and she most definitely turned up the heat with the deliciously sexy male lead - Chase. We first meet Roxy and Chase when Roxy is just a teenager - they are the cookie cutter of star-crossed lovers, both from rival MC’s and forbidden to ever be more than just friends. This proves forever difficult, as Chase is best friends with Roxy’s older brother Jeremy. Right away, the undeniable attraction between Roxy and Chase leaps off the page to us the reader...I mean hey - after that visual of Chase, who wouldnt want to be pressed up behind him on his bike ;) This book is filled with unexpected turns and several unforeseen twists of fate that have our two star-crossed lovers separated from each other for 4 years. What I loved about this book was how we moved through time quickly at the beginning - it helped set the stage for the bond between Roxy and Chase, and to establish the rivalry between the two MC’s. When they finally reunite 4 years later - Roxy is off the market (a fact that brings out the extremely sexy, territorial alpha in Chase), and Chase is now the VP of his MC. He had changed and hardened over the years, but his mind had never strayed far from thoughts of Roxy. Heather created a strong, sassy, smart mouthed female lead in Roxy - she knows she was cheated out of a real shot at love all those years ago with Chase. When he unexpectedly pops back up into her life, taken or not - they cannot deny the sexual energy between them. Now I know what you must be thinking - taken and still trying to get in another guy’s pants? You’ll have to pick yourself up a copy of the book so that you can learn a lil more about Roxy’s “bf” Jake. There are several secondary characters that stole a lot of the spotlight throughout the book. I love when authors write characters that are relatable - Nicole and Jeremy were exactly that. As Roxy’s best friend and older brother, they played significant roles in not only Chase and Roxy’s story - but there was a definite attraction between the two of them as well. Jeremy being male, takes his time coming around to that realization….and when he does - we have already been introduced to Hunter - who totally stole the show for me. Love him, and hope to see more of his sexy self in future books. As for their little love triangle...who will win Nicoles heart?? Heather did an amazing job of keeping me guessing until the very end of this book. Being an MC story - it definitely is filled with suspense, drama and a lot of hot, deliciously steamy scenes. Heres a teaser from a naughty scene with Chase and Roxy that my lady parts scream - and oh yes, I mean that in a good way ;) “Jealous much?” “Nah, Roxy. How can I when I know youve already been mine since the beginning?” My heart fluttered. He loosened the strings, and I stretched and pulled the bustier up over my head, releasing my breasts to him. My hair fell down around us. The hand that he had been massaging my ass with reached out and grabbed the tips of my hair and tugged down, making my head fall back as a gasp fell from my lips. Chase pulled my hips into his, causing me to release his belt buckle and to hang onto his biceps. I felt him grow hard through his jeans and the thin material of my booty shorts. I felt my cheeks flush knowing how wet and ready I was for him. Now to talk about Chase. My oh my Chase...he had me from the very first chapter when he showed his true nature, and his protectiveness over Roxy. I love that in my alpha male - and Heather did not disappoint me! He was that right combo of tough and sweet, ruthless and loving. He's undeniably the type of man I want waiting for me in bed and out ;) As for our two star-crossed lovers? What is their fate in this book? Do the stars align for their HEA...or will the odds be stacked against them? Well you know what to do to find out…. I should warn you though - be prepared for a hair-pulling, feet stomping cliffie! All I can say is, Heather book #2 better be on its way...there will def be some Chase fans left drooling. xo Cassia

Chase DeLuca a son of the Hell's Rebels MC has been best friends with Jeremy Moretti, son to the President of the Condemned Angels MC, since they were boys. Growing up together, Chase soon starting developing feelings for Jeremy's sister, Roxanne. Sharing mutual feelings, Roxanne and Chase play lustful games with each other until Roxanne's father puts a stop to it. Letting each know the role they have to play within their respective clubs, along with knowing that clubs don't mix. Roxanne and Chase turn their attentions to focus on college and his MC. Years later, Roxanne and Chase both return. Chase is now the VP for the Hell's Rebels and Roxy, exiting with a college degree, is now dancing in her bother, Jeremy's club. While dating the club treasure, Jake. This dynamic - Jake and Roxy- is supposed to produce an heir for the Condemned Angels, along with ensuring Jake's rank and roots within the Condemned Angels MC. When Roxy and Chase reunite as adults, the undeniable attraction from their younger years has intensified to scorching degrees. Roxanne is a betty boop and oh la la, Chase DeLuca is all lean muscle and tattoos. As these two continue to play games with each other, their is a suspenseful underlying plot brewing within the ranks of the MC that gives Chase the ammunition he needs to finally go after Roxanne. Within the story we are introduced to secondary characters that will soon get their own books. Yes! I read ahead :):). All in all this was an okay introductory short, sassy and sexy novella. Fast paced and enticing, yet somewhat lacking for me. I am an avid MC fan and voracious MC reader, so this honestly didn't cut it with falling into the fierce MC characteristics I have learnt about through reading and google. Oh! TV also lolz. Additionally, the fickleness of Roxanne's character was exhausting and her vainness was overbearing and immature as an MC heroine. So simply an okay read for me. *ARC's provided by Between the Sheets Promotions on behalf of the author for an honest review* Thanks!!

I made a vow to stay away from cliff hangers in 2014 due to the frustration of having to wait for the conclusion of a story. I decided to wait until all installment releases have occurred to buy the book so I can read the entire story at one time. Therefore, I have started reading the book descriptions more closely. This book description says absolutely nothing about this being a cliff hanger, part of a series or an installment. The book ends IMO in a big cliff hanger. At the end of the book, last page, it states "this is a three part series". The book description should have included that major fact.

Burning Desire is a story about forbidden love. I got a Westside Story feeling from it. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. This was one hell of a story that grabbed me and kept me interested the whole way through. We get Chase Deluca and Roxanne Morretti’s story in this new series. You can’t have an MC book without a ton of testosterone, dirty talking alpha men and this one had it in spades. Jeremy, Roxanne’s brother has been Chase’s best friend for a very long time. All three have grown up surrounded in the MC life so they’ve all become quite close. However, being that they are from different MC’s doesn’t make life easy for the trio. Chase is from the Condemned Angels, whereas Jeremy and Roxanne are from the H***’s Rebels. Their fathers are both presidents of their respective MC’s. Roxanne has loved Chase for as long as she can remember. As far as Chase is concerned Roxanne is his. Chase was always so protective of Roxanne growing up but as they got older he started to be more affectionate. That was until Michael, Roxanne’s father interfered. As far as her father was concerned she was destined to be an Old Lady to one of the members of the H***’s Rebels. This book was torture, TORTURE; it was like watching a train wreck. It was clear these two loved each other but Chase was responsible for his MC and that had to be his priority. If I ever here “THIS CAN NEVER BE”, I swear I am going to slap them. “Did you enjoy that?” “What do you think? I think I did just as much as you did.” “Good, because it will never happen again.” “How was that, Chase?” “F**king hot.” “Good, because it’ll never happen again.” Chase walks away from Roxanne after she leaves for College. He puts his own MC first instead of fighting for her ,but when they see each other one day they realize all the feelings have for each other has not changed. However, there is just a little problem to that scenario. Roxanne in involved with a man from her MC. And not just any man, Jake is the VP of the H***’s Rebels. Chase hates that someone else has what he believes is his, but he put his club first so he is forced to sit back and watch. Chase is no saint, he has women all around all the time, but they are not Roxanne. Jake, Jake, Jake I HATE HIM, you will too. Jake feels he is entitled to Roxanne, and so does her father. Michael is not aware of the dark secret Jakes hides from the club. Jake is a dark, violent and strange person. He came off as a sleaze to me. ( good looking but a perv) “I’m going to remind you that you’re mine tonight. Even if I have to show it physically, so no one mistakes it.” Chase is jealous of Jake’s relationship with Roxanne, but he will not put the club at risk. When Chase starts to see signs that something is wrong, he decides that he has no choice to step in no matter what happens with his club. “You let him do this to you? “ “What do you think?” “Why the f*** am I looking at it? Why is it here? On your body?” another MC.” Slowly the danger starts to creep in and Michael knows the only one he can trust to protect and keep Roxanne safe is Chase. Chase will do anything to make sure HIS Roxanne is safe; he will protect her with his life. “Don’t think I have noticed the looks between you two. You don’t have to say one-word your looks say it all. She never has gotten over you. I bet not even Jake loves her, as much as you do. Chase, I’m not stupid, son. I know your feelings for my daughter run deep. That’s why I want you on this. I want her safe. I don’t doubt Jake’s protection over her, but you know her best.” “You have my word; I’ll tail her and let you know what I find out.” MOTHER H***, you all know what happens!!! Yep the more time they spend together the more the can longer fight what destiny planned long ago. CHASE DEAR GOD!! He is one dirty taking hot biker and Roxanne does not hold back either. “Rox enough of being a tease or I’m going to put you over the arm of this couch and f**k the s**t out of you. You have no F**king idea how much I want you. You feel so f**king good, baby.” “Oh God, Chase.” “S**t you are so wet for Me, baby. I can feel it, you’re close. Come on. Baby. Come for me baby, give it to me.” “I want you to come Chase.” Chase will not let Roxanne go, he wants her, he has a plan to claim her and he hopes it will work. Roxanne and Chase have to fight to be together and it isn’t easy because of all the danger that is lurking. This book had a lot of twist and turns, I did not see coming and I was left with my mouth hanging open. The ending, I AM JUST GOING TO COME out and say it, is a Cliffhanger. There is good news however, book 2 is the works and should be out soon so do not let it stop you from picking this one up. It was AWESOME, FUN, STEAMY, HOT and worth the ending. Book 2 will be about Jeremy and Nicole (Roxanne’s BFF), we meet them in this book and those 2 are funny as h***!!! *received a complimentary copy from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

    book gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review I liked this book the story was interesting it was light and sassy and some parts of it sexy,for me I felt perhaps it went a bit too fast like there was no connection at times I felt the story drop for me and just become words on a page so I would have liked a deeper pull there but it was still a good read and yes I will be interested in reading part 2 to see where it goes .

    Not a bad beginning to the series, but ends on a cliffhanger. The book held my attention and even had me laughing out load a few times. Quick easy read. I'm already planning to move onto book #2.

Roxanne is a Condemned Angel’s princess. Her father is the MC President and her brother is working his way up the ranks.

Burning Desire is about Roxanne Moretti and Chase DeLuca. Roxanne is a Condemned Angel’s princess. Her father is the MC President and her brother is working his way up the ranks. She is young and beautiful but she only has eyes for one man, Chase, a member of Hell’s Rebel’s MC. Will her father let her be with a member of another MC? What will happen when they are forced apart for years? Chase DeLuca is Jeremy Moretti’s best friend. He has had an eye for Jeremy’s younger sister, Roxanne for as long as he can remember. The only problem is that they belong to different MC’s that are not supposed to mix relationships between the two MC’s. What will happen when Roxanne is caught on the back of Chase’s bike? Will Chase be able to stand up and fight for what has always wanted, or will he let her slip through his fingers? Holy Moly, this was one hot biker romance. I LOVED IT!!! Roxanne was strong and determined to make Chase see her for the woman that she is. She loves her father, brother, and the MC but she also loves Chase. I can’t imagine being put in the situation that she is facing but I have faith those things will work themselves out. Chase is HOT and his jealousy knows no bounds. He sure knows how to show a girl a good time. : ) I loved reading about Jeremy, Nicole, and Hunter as well. I certainly hope that Jeremy opens his eyes and doesn’t let the girl he cares so deeply about slip away. I hated Jake and I am SO GLAD that he got what he had coming to him. He deserved everything he got and then some. I love a good Biker Romance! I look forward to reading Ride Hard and Wreckless Abandon coming out soon in 2014!!

I really missed that part, their dialogue was too formal and almost uncomfortable to read. I look forward to seeing the growth of this author and the progression of this series.

The guys in this book are hot!! The woman are sexy and strong willed. They most definitely know what & who they want. But, of course nothing comes easily for anyone involved in this story. Roxy Moretti is the daughter to the Condemned Angels President. She is in love with her older brother best friend Chase DeLuca. What's th ✯✯5 Hot Burning Stars!!✯✯ For a debut book, Heather Leigh totally rocked it!! This is the 2nd MC book I've read and man they are becoming my favorite kind of book to read. The guys in this book are hot!! The woman are sexy and strong willed. They most definitely know what & who they want. But, of course nothing comes easily for anyone involved in this story. Roxy Moretti is the daughter to the Condemned Angels President. She is in love with her older brother best friend Chase DeLuca. What's the problem? Chase's father is the president of another MC club the Hell's Rebels. Chase knows that Roxy belongs to him and him alone. That is until Roxy's father tells him that his daughter is off limits. There can be no mixing of clubs at all. His daughter will grow up & become a "Old Lady" to someone in his club. He is to stay away. And, he does!! Over the next few years Roxy & Chase run into each other. Usually because Chase is with Jeremy. It is obvious that they are holding back feelings for each other. Yet, the main person holding back is Chase out of respect for Roxy's father and the "rules" of the club. But, every time he see's her it gets harder & harder for him to just walk away. Roxy belongs to him. She always has and always will no matter what anyone says. Fast forward a couple years. The Condemned Angels &Hell's Rebels have opened up the hottest night club around. Jeremy is running it & Roxy is working there as well. Chase shows up to the club for the 1st time since it opened a few weeks ago. Of course him & Jeremy are still best of friends. Chase is now VP of Hell's Rebels and he has stuck to his word of staying away from Roxy. Until that night. He spots her instantly from the opposite side of the club. The minute Roxy turns around she spots Chase's eyes and the fire the connection is still there. And, man is it still hot! But, there's one big problem. His name is Jake as he's the treasurer of the Condemned Angels and Roxy's boyfriend. And, this guy I have nothing nice to say about him what so ever!! I can promise you that you'll agree with me 110% Sparks fly instantly between Chase & Roxy. Unfortunately, Jake saw the sparks in action. Him & Chase have never been close. They have def had pissing contests over Roxy before. And, because of the MC Case belongs to he lost. Jake lets Roxy know rather quickly this thing between her and Chase will stop or else the outcome won't be pretty for her. Luckily for us Roxy & Chase don't give two shits what he says. They start talking, texting & hanging out. Next thing that happens I was shocked. Heather did an absolutely fantastic job keeping me on my toes!! Roxy is know being stalked. Somebody wants her. Now, her brother moves Roxy and her best friend Nicole into his house. I absolutely love Nicole!! She is hilarious & can not wait to get more of her. Now, Roxy's father picks somebody to be her bodyguard. There was only 1 person other then Jeremy that he trusted with his baby girls life. No other Chase!! Now, Roxy & Chase are together all the time. They no longer try to fight their feelings for each other. Let me tell you. OMG,, these two are seriously hot!! It's obvious they were meant to be together. They get each other. What Roxy & Chase were having was way way over due. I really love these 2 together. They have been in love with each other for as long as they can remember. Unfortunately, there still so many obstacles and by obstacles I mean people in their way. And, it totally not fair. All because the patch's on their backs are different. It's a totally unfair rule! Jeremy, Chase and Nicole keep Roxy close to them at all times. I love when they're all together. They are all fighting feelings. Jeremy & Nicole totally like each other. Yet, Jeremy is taking his time. Roxy & Chase are hiding their romance from people. Jake is not gone either. He is literally making things difficult for Roxy. He has his own plan to make it where Roxy will be stuck with him for life. And, it'll eventually help him work his way up in the Condemned Angels. Chase learns his plans & looses his mind because Roxy belongs to him & him alone!! Thing's get intense from there on out. A lot of sex, drugs, fights, violence. Like I said before Heather killed it in her debut book. I feel really honored that she asked me to read it!! You will not believe what you are reading. It is definitely not a easy road for Chase & Roxy. Poor Roxy has crappy luck. The only good thing in her life is Chase, Jeremy, Nicole & her dad. But, are they good enough to save her from the demons that are after her. And, what has Jake unleashed!! You will totally fall in love with Roxy & Chase and Jeremy & Nicole. I can not wait for all their stories to continue in 'Wreckless Abandon'. But, I will warn you. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off & your panties to get wet & for your heart to race while reading this

Daughter of the president Michael Moretti; Roxy lives with her father and older brother Jeremy. Having lost her mother several years ago, Roxy lives a good, if not protected life. We start the book as Roxy is preparing to head off to college. She is also in total love with Chase De Luca; Jeremy's best friend and heir apparent to another MC, Hell's Rebel 3.5 Crowns Book 1 in the Condemned Angels MC series Burning Desire is the story of Roxy and Chase. Roxy is the princess of the Condemned Angels MC. Daughter of the president Michael Moretti; Roxy lives with her father and older brother Jeremy. Having lost her mother several years ago, Roxy lives a good, if not protected life. We start the book as Roxy is preparing to head off to college. She is also in total love with Chase De Luca; Jeremy's best friend and heir apparent to another MC, Hell's Rebels. After catching Chase taking Roxy on her first motorbike ride, Roxy's father makes it very clear to both Roxy and Chase that a relationship is not on the cards for them and under no circumstances will they start anything. Mixing between MC's is unacceptable and after taking Chase off for another chat, Chase rides of without saying goodbye. A few months later, the passion they share bubbles to the surface. Chase however tells Roxy that this is the 1st and only kiss they will ever share. 10 years later.... Chase is back on the scene after spending some time away focusing on his club and securing his reputation as the new VP. Roxy is also back and working in Jeremy's club as a dancer. Roxy doesn't strip but on seeing Chase for the 1st time in years, she can't help herself. When they come face to face she gives Chase a taste of his own medicine, telling him that the kiss she gives him better have been good because it was the last he will ever get. Will Roxy and Chase finally get the opportunity to develop the feelings they have had for each other for most of their lives? How will Jake, Roxy's boyfriend and Condemned Angels treasurer react to Chase being back on the scene? most importantly, when a threat to Roxy comes to light, will it be Chase or Jake who protect her? Ok, so I did like this book - it just fell a little short in places for me. I really liked all the characters; Roxy was a strong minded woman who knows what she wants and won't accept being pushed around or intimidated. Chase is your typical biker alpha male. He loves Roxy, but has a huge amount of respect for Michael and Jeremy. This obviously made him walk away the first time, but an older and wiser Chase is back and he wants Roxy and is struggling to stay away this time. Jeremy is the protective older brother. Loyal to Chase but always puts his club and family 1st, he harbours feelings for Nicole; Roxy's best friend. Nicole is fun loving and unaware of Jeremy's feeling... Or is she? Jake, well as the current boyfriend he's has to be an arse. He is, you defiantly want Roxy to kick him out of the door. The storyline on the whole was a good one, it was fast paced and kept my interest throughout. I usually like my MC romance books a little more gritty and dare I say it, violent. This book isn't that, it is more a forbidden romance in the MC world; I actually quite liked that, it was different and sometimes you want a bit more loving. The main issues I had were the lack of depth the story had. I think the author was so focused on the romantic element that she didn't, for me, develop the characters or storyline as much as she could have and this is a shame. It led to the book feeling a little rushed. Feelings and situations moved a little too quickly, making the book just a good read rather than a great one. I was also left feeling a little confused as to why Chase was able to have the type of relationship he had with Jeremy, but not with Roxy. At times it even felt like Chase was in fact a member of Condemned Angels. This for me needed more explanation, instead it was brushed over. That being said, it really is worth a read. If the mixture of MC and forbidden romance appeals to you, you are sure to enjoy it. The book does end on a cliffhanger, so I hope we don't have to wait too long for book 2 - Ride Hard. I also hope we get to see more Jeremy and Nicole in the book. I can see that love story being an interesting one.

    Hmmm now I absolutely love a good biker book but for me this Burning Desire falls into the 'It's ok' catagory. Why? Well there are several reasons. Firstly the story starts with the prologue ten years ago. Chapter one is then headed 3 months on. But when starting to read Chapter one it's as though a bigger time difference has gone on. I can't decide whether it feels more like present day and 3 months on or it really was they had only been to college for 3 months, but why make out the characters h Hmmm now I absolutely love a good biker book but for me this Burning Desire falls into the 'It's ok' catagory. Why? Well there are several reasons. Firstly the story starts with the prologue ten years ago. Chapter one is then headed 3 months on. But when starting to read Chapter one it's as though a bigger time difference has gone on. I can't decide whether it feels more like present day and 3 months on or it really was they had only been to college for 3 months, but why make out the characters had 'grown' and seemed so different. It's too short a time scale to notice any kind of differences really. The the story moves on 4 years, now we've already met Nicole, Chase, Roxy and Jeremy but we are strangely introduced to Jeremy again as what seems like a new character. And then the overindulgent use of the word Brother, had me muttering, 'oh Brother.' Now the books starts and runs with Chase's and Roxy's POV's until suddenly at the 40% marker I am suddenly reading Nicole's POV. That was just so strange to suddenly be reading another person's POV. With Roxy I couldn't settle in to really liking her either, one minute she was acting naive and I suppose a bit coy, and then she's showing her claws, strutting her stuff, modelling scantilly and generally be a prick tease. Hmmm I don't think Roxy's character fully developed, she's the daughter of the Prez but sometimes didn't act it. Then Chase.. So why did Roxy's father have Chase tailing Roxy saying he knew Roxy better than her boyfriend Jake? What the hell, Chase hasn't even be around for 4 years or longer, yeah they grew up as kids together but no way would Chase know Roxy better than her current boyfriend. That seems a weak plot area. Also Chase is the VP from the rival biker MC, the clue here is Biker.... so why the ever loving hell is Chase standing in front of Roxy's father spewing the line.... 'I would recommend keeping a close eye on her.' What the heck, he's a biker dude, bikers aren't polite they are gruff, arrogant, in your face. Again Chase's character didn't seem fully invested to me. I had trouble with some of the vernacular used too, it didn't feel fully right for me in a biker book. Some of the references to Lady parts were very 'flowery' too which also should have been more down and dirty. And then it other places it was down and dirty. Sigh.... a bit of a rollercoaster. All in all for me this is an ok read, and certainly passable. It doesn't for me however fall into the realm of a great biker read but like I say it is readable. For a biker book it's a bit on the tamer side in some places and vulgar in others that you come to expect from bikers, so it was a bit indecisive sometimes. My biggest issue was the characters, they struggled to flow nicely, their speech sometimes impeded and the sequence of events was a bit puzzling at times too. But like I say all in all this is certainly not the worst and is an OK read but don't expect it to blow your mind with seedy bikers and riveting characters.

With that said, I have a pretty good idea where the books typically lead you to and I know to expect certain things that can be a tad bit rougher than most books (sex, language, treatment of women, etc...).

Wi ***I RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** 3.5 Stars! I love MC books. I have read one that are rough to light depending on the author and series. With that said, I have a pretty good idea where the books typically lead you to and I know to expect certain things that can be a tad bit rougher than most books (sex, language, treatment of women, etc...). With that, I liked this book and I will definitely read book 2 and 3 since it is mentioned that this is part 1 of a 3 book series. With all that said, I must warn you this book does end on an Oh. Em. Gee. type of cliffhanger! :) This book is also full of steam, hot sexy times, crazy momenets and a few suprises/twists and turns that had my jaw dropping. This book is like a modern day version of Romeo + Juliet. The heroine (Roxy) is the daughter of an MC president. Her man is the treasurer of said club. And her brother is part of the same club. The hero (Chase) is in another club and also best friends with her brother. He is vice president of his club. In this type of lifestyle, you don't cross over. It just doesn't work that way and is typically how wars can get started by messing with each other's properties but these two have a pull between them that is determined to get them together despite the circumstances. With what seems like the world against them, these two are in the battle of their lives to be together. I will say that the scene at the end with Jake, he totally had that coming- BEAST MODE! Do Roxy and Chace have a chance? Is someone out to tear Roxy and Chace apart? What will happen when secrets are revealed? Is it their fate to be together or will they always be star crossed lovers? I don't want to reveal any spoilers about this book but I will say you need to read it yourself. I gave it lots of points for being very different from the typical MC book we see and read today. Sometimes it can be repetitive but this book is different than any I have read. This author is new to me and to the writing world so I will say that grammar and basic editing things were a small minor issue and I feel like this author will just get better with time because she has a lot of potential. I cannot wait for book 2, Ride Hard, to see where this series is going to head. I also want more from the side stories and characters (Nicole, Jeremy, Hunter...) that we get to see in this book.

    Roxy, Princess of the Condemned Angels MC, can't help but to seriously crush on her brother's best friend, Chase. As the young adults grow older, Roxy's dad's warning rings clear in Chase's mind- there is no mixing in MC clubs and the fate of the Condemned Angels rests in Roxy's hands. Chase has tried his best to stay away but will fate ultimately give him and Roxy a happily ever after? I'm "new" to the explosion of MC life in television and books.

Chase has tried his best to stay away but will fate ultimately give him and Roxy a happily ever after? I'm "new" to the explosion of MC life in television and books. I only recently started watching Sons of Anarchy and I'm probably the only girl on the planet who despises Jax *gasp*. I've only read one other MC book and in this one and that one there are scenes that are identical to Sons of Anarchy. Are these types of instances common in the MC world? I have no idea! However, in this book I liked the characters a hell of a lot more than in other representations. Roxy is impossible to dislike with her caring personality, fierce persona, and overall she is a genuine person. She has an equally sexy and kick-ass best friend named Nicole and an over-protective yet sweet big brother Jeremy. Add in Chase- the bad boy/Mr. MC Charming and the characters are so easy to read about and enjoy. I enjoyed reading in Roxy's and Chase's viewpoint as I could understand each of them better. I didn't quite understand why Nicole and Jeremy had only a few pages in their viewpoints- I wanted to tell them to "get their own book" which I hope they have! Overall this was a sexy and thrilling romance that had me hooked from page one. There was quite a twist at about 70% which I feel could have been longer & more detailed. Just as things were really getting good the story was about to end! I wanted more! More Roxy and more Chase!! A stunning debut by a new author- I'm sure many will enjoy this read and I am looking forward to book two. Note: The book mentions the song "Burning Desire" by Lana Del Ray which I listened to and loved- highly recommend taking a short break during the book and listening to this song to really set the mood. *Received an arc in exchange for an honest review*

The 2nd books already out! WINNING!

Nicole and Jeremy are going around in circles with each other. Nicole is just waiting for Jeremy to step up to the plate. So far there have been several plot twists that kept me guessing. I like when a book is not predictable. Keeps me turning the pages! These characters are so intense with each other. I love the relationship between Nicole and Roxy. As close as sisters, but call each other out when needed. Jeremy and Chase have been friends since they were kids, and keep that relationship going even though they belong to different MC's. I can't wait to see where their stories lead!

    This was a good start to this new MC series, but there was something missing for me, not that I can quite put my finger on it.

    As much as I liked Burning Desire, I cannot comprehend why Roxanne would go to college, get a degree and then become a stripper…. To each their own I guess. Anyway, I loved hotheaded sexy Chase.

We meet Roxy and Chase the two belong to different MC Clubs but are absolutely mad for each other. Roxys dad tells the couple they are not allowed to be together, as the president of his MC he holds all the cards. When two people are meant to be nothing can stop them! It takes quite a while but the pair finally get together, but this is just the beginning! I rode an emotional roller-coaster reading this book, from tears to giggles to tears again! The chemistry between Roxy and Chase is steamy as hell! Can the couple get their happily ever after? Read to find out! On to the next book for me I need to know what happens next! Be prepared for a monster of a cliff hanger! I'm so glad I have the next book to jump straight into! Thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Highly recommended! 5 Stars! ~~~~~~~~~~Sharlene's ★★★★✯ Review~~~~~~~~~~~ The first installment (1 of 3) in the Condemned Angels MC series introduces Roxy and Chase. Roxy is the daughter of the President of the CA MC and Chase is a member of the Hell's Rebels MC (soon to become VP). They are forbidden by club law to be involved. But MC laws have nothing on the laws of the heart. Roxy is a little spitfire and not afraid of living her life. Chase is your typical alpha MC member. The give and take between these two is HOT. Lots of confusion, angst, passion, love and hate. The characters are well developed and easy to like (except Jake, nobody likes him). Jake is the Treasurer of the CA MC. When Roxy returns from college they end up as a couple. You can imagine what that does to Chase. The fallout that happens between these three is intense. The story time lapses over several years and the author makes it an easy read. Love, hate, passion and MC dynamics are all involved. The only issue I had with this book was that I did not feel "connected" to the MC. The story focuses more on the relationship between Roxy and Chase but very little is mentioned about the MC or club business in detail. This by no means detracts from the interactions between Roxy and Chase and Jake. But it would have been nice to have a little more insight into club business and how that impacts the characters. This story is definitely NOT a stand alone as it ends a cliffhanger. But thankfully, the second installment is already out. So one-click both of these to get you started on the Condemned Angels story. ~~~~~~~~~~Jess's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~ If you like SOA then you will love this book! I have to admit this is the first time I have read an MC book but Sweet Jesus, I LOVED this book! This book is HOT, HOT, and HOT! When you force two people as in love with each other as Roxanne and Chase apart for years, what do you think is going to happen when they see each other again? Those feelings are going to come back all at once. You can’t deny fate, hell nobody can but for Rox and Chase there was no way they could. They were pushed together and they both loved! However I do wish Jeremy would suck it up and treat Nicole the way she should be treated. He is messing hard with his fate and just may lose her forever. With this book I was completely drawn in. I read this book in 12 hours because I just could not put it down. I have to say the part in the book when Nine Inch Nail’s Closer appeared I was already thinking this song just from reading up to that part. I was going to tell you that it would be an awesome some to have on the book soundtrack. Heather Leigh you are an amazing Author. I cannot wait for more of your books. You have easily just made my favorite Author and favorite book! Thank you so much for choosing Sweet N Sassy Book A Holics to review an ARC Copy of this awesome book. **I received this complimentary book by the author for an honest review**

Chase and Roxy grew up together. They've been harboring feelings for each other for years. But being in an MC, there are rules. Rules that state MC's can't mix. And it just so happens that Chase is part of another MC. “You and that boy are to stay away from each other, do you hear me? If he’s with Jeremy, you walk away. I Holy fucking shit! Well hott damn! This book was so fucking good!!! If you like bikers, then this right here is a story you most definitely want to read. What a hell of a ride! Chase and Roxy grew up together. They've been harboring feelings for each other for years. But being in an MC, there are rules. Rules that state MC's can't mix. And it just so happens that Chase is part of another MC. “You and that boy are to stay away from each other, do you hear me? If he’s with Jeremy, you walk away. I don’t ever want to have this discussion with you again. He’s no good for you and this club. Do you understand me?” With the President of the Condemned Angels on their back, reminding them of what could never be, Chase does what he knows must be done.....breaks Roxy's heart and promises her father that he will stay away. “In order for me to keep my club and myself safe, but most importantly Rox safe, I have to let her go.” Roxy is heartbroken but knows that she must stay away. She takes off to college and hopes that the distance will help. Four years later, Roxy is back from college, working at her brother, Jeremy’s club and in a relationship. But things have changed and seeing Chase again brings the strong feelings to the surface that she just can’t seem to get over. After seeing Chase for the first time in four years, she knew that it was going to be really hard to ignore her feelings. “God, those lips-if I could just. No, Roxy. He left you high and dry in a hallway, never to be heard from again. Don’t you dare fall for him…again.” Four years. Four years and the minute Chase sees Roxy, he's mesmerized. I love how he tries to mentally convince himself that he has a promise to keep but physically fails every time he's around her. “He kissed me like it was the air he needed to breath and he had been deprived of oxygen for years.” I loved this story. It captured me from the beginning. There are some unexpected turns of events that will have you immersed in this book. Shit, the whole story line devours you. The bond of brothers/sisters, the MC, family and friends. The well liked and the not so well liked characters. The chemistry, love, violence and hot fucking sex. See? That. All of that will consume you. “My eyes fluttered open, I went to move but my arms were tied above my head. They were heavy and numb.” I was so happy that the female characters are sassy and badass. They were portrayed as strong, independent, confident woman who don't take shit from nobody. And I love that. I think it makes it sexier. It makes the chemistry and the passion so much more raw. Roxy isn't afraid to take what she wants. “I pulled Chase’s ripped shirt up over his head. Our lips broke apart long enough for the fabric to pass between our faces. I raked my nails down over his broad shoulders, down his muscular pectorals, and down his defined abs, to his belt buckle.” I was not expecting it to end the way it did. And I was like 'what. the. fuck.' ......... cliffhanger! Ugh! I could not believe how I was left hanging! NO. NOOOOOO! I need more. I need to know. I couldn't wait to fucking read the next one. The ending did exactly what a good cliffhanger is supposed to end….leave you wanting more!

    Mary's 5 Star Review Who doesn't love a good MC book? Burning Desire by Heather Leigh was just that. It was one of the better one's for me. The story grabbed me from the prologue and I'm a big sucker for the forbidden romance. If your thinking the classic Romeo And Juliet story you would be wrong. There isn't the whole big angst filled drama with two families fighting. What I really liked was the established connection between the main characters. Wasn't insta love and the main character wasn't a Mary's 5 Star Review Who doesn't love a good MC book? Burning Desire by Heather Leigh was just that. It was one of the better one's for me. The story grabbed me from the prologue and I'm a big sucker for the forbidden romance. If your thinking the classic Romeo And Juliet story you would be wrong. There isn't the whole big angst filled drama with two families fighting. What I really liked was the established connection between the main characters. Wasn't insta love and the main character wasn't a hard-core alpha. I loved that about this book! Everything fit together perfectly in this book. It had an easy flow and I thought the writing was fantastic. I also enjoyed reading not one, not two, but four pov's. You get a little bit from everyone in this book. Each character is just as important as the other. I loved being thrown in the world of the Condemned Angels MC. Jeremy and Chase are best friends who grew up together. They also belong to different MC's. Chase has had feelings for Jeremy's younger sister Roxanne what seems like forever. The only problem is that her father has plans for her future that don't involve Chase. Roxanne is to become involved with someone from her families MC. Roxanne returns home after college to find she still has feelings for Chase even though she's dating another member of her families MC. They try to hide their feelings, but it becomes impossible for them to stay away from each other. They try their hardest to hide their relationship but when things start to get dangerous for Roxanne and she needs protection Chase is the one who steps up. Will Chase finally do what he's always wanted and claim Roxanne as his? Or will the long sought out plans that were set for her be her real future? So there you have it! They are fighting to be together, but also for the futures of both of their clubs. All Roxanne ever wanted from chase was for him to stand up for her. To put her first and not play with her feelings for him. It's pretty cut and dry. There was no doubt that I wanted these two together. They both cared for each other since they were younger. There easy teasing and witty banter was enjoyable. The book had plenty of twists and I'm so glad each one threw Chase and Roxanne together. He really became her own personal savior and protector. There were plenty of surprises and I was left wanting more. If you are looking for a new MC series to fall in love with this is the one for you. I loved the characters, story, and pretty much everything else about the book. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.
