To view it, click here. 2.5 stars There was a scene that seemed to come out of nowhere that made me think he’s not possessive of her as we’re supposed to think, and by the end of the book, it still seemed to be more of an arrangement between them than some epic love. Not a fan of ‘replacement’ heroines. Still, the book was better than other shit that’s out there...

    I did receive this book for a honest review This book can be read as a standalone, but other characters make appearances from the other books in series. This book was such a good read, well developed characters and good story line . I would not call this a second chance but the characters knew each other since childhood, they both lived through ups and downs and loss !! Nova comes to town hoping Smoke can help with something, take a chance and read this book.

    I love all of Kristine Allen’s book, but this one just blew me away! I was totally engrossed from the first paragraph! So many twists and turns and finally a steamy, hot HEA! As always Kristine has exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait for the next one!

Sex scenes are amazing for example:“Breathe through your nose and relax your throat,” he said softly, then gave a shuddering exhale. Every time Grayson shoved into me, it pushed me forward and rammed Straight’s cock down my throat. I did my best to remember to relax. Each time his head slid over my tongue, the metal tickled , and I wiggled it back and forth. Though I shouldn’t be, I I loved this book!

To top off the sensation overload, Grayson slid his thumb through my wetness and rimmed my puckered hole. With his next thrust, he pushed it past the opening, and my eyes rolled back in my head.

    WHAT A WILD RIDE OF A STORY! Following the previous book in this series, this book focuses on the president of the Texas chapter, Smoke (aka Grayson), and this author gives us the backstory as well as his own story to give us a well-rounded storyline and HEA for him. Nova is from his past and her reintroduction into his life has him addressing his past both with and without her, and the ability to act on feelings he didn’t even realize he had.

Nova is from his past and her reintroduction into his life has him addressing his past both with and without her, and the ability to act on feelings he didn’t even realize he had. Combined with their love story, we also get a suspenseful story involving both Nova and Smoke’s pasts apart and how those pasts intertwined together. Without giving away anything, I couldn’t get enough of this book, mainly because of the suspense of finding out who exactly was behind everything and Smoke getting his feelings in order. Per usual, we get the same style of writing and solid storyline from this author, and all this book did was make me excited for the next in the series! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Smoke and Mirrors is one of the best and well written MC novels I have read in a long time. I could not put it down, and ended up reading it in one sitting. There are so many twist and turns, not to mention passion, humor, pain,anger, and true love. I won't reveal any parts of the book, because quite frankly I wouldn't be able to do the book justice. If you are an MC fan, do yourself a favor and grab your copy. You will not be disappointed. Smoke and Mirrors is one of the best and well written MC novels I have read in a long time.

    Loved, loved, loved this book! Smoke is a great, well developed character. I was drawn in from the first paragraph. I enjoy everything Kristine Allen writes but this was definitely one of my favorites. Check out this series, you will not be disappointed!

    Pretty good MC story I enjoyed this book, and this chapter of the Demented Sons MC. There was plenty of humor, sadness, hurt feelings, drama/action, and learning to trust again and moving forward in life. I appreciated how the story naturally unfolded. It didn’t feel forced, and nothing felt like it was made to be there just for a quick plot device. I like second chance love stories, and I’m in love with biker stories- so this one definitely did what it was meant to do.

I like second chance love stories, and I’m in love with biker stories- so this one definitely did what it was meant to do. It drew me in- making me feel like the characters were real. I loved Smoke’s daughter, Mattie. She truly felt like a real teenager to me. She was funny, laid back, had her sassy teen attitude, very accepting, and did make some teen mistakes that made her feel real. She wasn’t a mean girl teen, a brat, or too perfect. She has just the right amount of everything to balance her out and I loved her from the start. I loved the brothers and brotherhood of this chapter. I loved their playfulness, their humor, their true feelings and not afraid to show them. I appreciated their true emotions in situations and not trying to be over the top alpha/idiot man or no feelings kind of a guy. I felt like they had a good balance of who they were. I appreciated Smoke’s dilemmas and how he tried to handle life as a dad of a teen, a president, and his growing feelings. Nova- I liked how she was strong and not a bimbo who lets her body rule all thoughts and reasons as most h’s do in the MC genre. I loved when she would stand up to Smoke too. She knew when to walk away even though she was hopelessly in love with Smoke. I loved Toby/Torque. I hope we see a story for him with his MC. The only two things that bothered me were: 1. I didn’t buy the love between Smoke and Nova. Maybe from Nova, but Smoke!? Nope. It was too fast and questionable coming from him. Especially after something happened one night between them. 2. I really questioned Smoke’s feelings when he decided to share Nova with another brother after basically claiming her... though he states it was only a technicality and after that moment she was truly his Old Lady. I call BS on that. That was very left field and I didn’t like it one bit. Maybe early on in the story but at 80%? Nope. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for this chapter of the Demented Sons series.

    Probably my favorite of this series I think this is my favorite book of this series. (This review will contain spoilers). I loved Smoke. He was so hot and sexy and funny. I loved his interactions with pretty much everyone. I thought it was sad that he wouldn’t let himself move on from losing his wife when he was 18. He was so young. He did a great job raising his daughter from that marriage though. Mattie (his daughter)was just awesome. Enter Nova. I loved her so much!

He did a great job raising his daughter from that marriage though. Mattie (his daughter)was just awesome. Enter Nova. I loved her so much! His childhood friend and his late wife’s best friend. She introduced Smoke to his late wife. Nova never let on that she had loved Smoke/Grayson since she was six years old. Anyway. She returns to town 16 years later because she wants a baby and she wants to ask Grayson to father the baby. He says no. They end up hooking up. They having amazing chemistry at this point (even though Smoke never thought of her that way before). Now that she’s all grown up he’s insanely attracted to her. Their on/off relationship starts from there. He’s very hot and cold with her but she doesn’t put up with his crap and she puts him in his place several times and it was awesome. Their relationship grows and I really love how it evolved. The ending was also very good. There is one scene that I was a little unsure of. About Eighty percent in, Smoke invites his VP in to share her while he’s having sex with her. I thought that was totally out of character for him to do that even though he said it would never happen again. It was like a last “hoorah” before he truly claimed her. Smoke just seemed like the type who would never want anyone else touching his woman. He seemed to regret later though and that was satisfying.

    OH MY! Smokes story is smoking hot 🔥🔥🔥 Muy Caliente 🔥 Scream! I LOVED this book. Smoke is the president to the Demented Sons MC TX chapter. He has an sweet and sassy teenage daughter named Mattie. Smoke and his highachool sweetheart were teenage parents, and sadly his wife passed away when Mattie was baby.

He never really gets over the passing of his beloved wife. 16 years after her death...Nova..Smoke and his dead wife's childhood friend comes into town....with a mind boggling proposal for Smoke. Nova and Smoke were friends first as children...she loved Smoke ever since..but he never looked at her that way. When Nova transitioned from homeschool to public school she became friends w Tess as well ( smokes wife)....they all hung out as great friends..and Nova always kept her feelings for Grayson ( Smokes) to herself since she respected her 2 friends relationship. When Nova comes back to town Smokes tries to keep his distance from her because she reminds him of his past. This story made my heart flutter. Smokes doesn't want to admit he has feelings for Nova...but when Novas ex/a biker from another club comes around trying to win Nova back...Smoke becomes jealous and possessive. Without giving away too many spoilers..let me just say you will need some ice to cool your self down when it comes to the office scene with Smoke, Nova and Straight 🔥🔥🔥 nearly melted my kindle...would have been worth it too 😂. I admit I read it several times 😍. This book is SO good. ❤ Kristine Allen and her talented writing.

Smoke doesn't know what to do with Nova, on the one hand he things she is crazy on the other the chemistry between them sizzles whenever she is near. Smoke has enough on his plate with his teenage daughter and club but something keeps leading him back to Nova. Can he be enough to build a relationship with her or does he need to let her go without a backward glance? The one thing I appreciate with this series is that each book is completely different then the previous one. Smokes story is a bit more dark and he surprised me by his feelings toward Nova. There was a couple of surprises in the book that I never saw coming. Couldn't put this one down.

    This review is for the audiobook. I really enjoyed Smoke's story! Smoke and Nova were great together with just enough conflict to appease my angst loving heart. I really liked Nova's character, she was a bit naive but otherwise held her own pretty well. Smoke was a good guy and I liked how he took care of everyone. This was a bit of a sad story but I liked that we got to catch up with past characters. The story itself was interesting and held my attention well.

I will definitely re-read this book. I highly recommend reading this book and the series.

    I’ve read a lot from this author now, but this one didn’t do it for me. H/h were to me friends till the end. I don’t care much for what happened that everyone is pissy about, 81% in, but I just didn’t feel the relationship and it was a disappointment. Smoke was still sexy af, tho. Nova was badass too, but together...huy.
