Jack “Bulldog” Parrish
Crazy: Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.
I was thirteen when I discovered the definition of the word I’d forever be labeled.
Some used it as a figure of speech but for me it was a scar I’d carry through life.
Or so I believed until I was diagnosed a manic depressive.
I’m the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycle Club, a man of power and control.
A man with enemies near and far.
But the truth, my truth, is my biggest enemy— my mind and I live most of my life with no control whatsoever.
I’m just a man who battles his demons, a man destined to live a life full of darkness.
She’s the light beckoning me, calling me home, away from the torment.
In a world as dark as the one I live in, sometimes I can’t help but crave Sunshine.
I was lost, broken and a prisoner of my scars.
A shell of the woman I used to be, who didn’t know the difference between living and merely existing.
Until a stranger found me, fixed and freed me. He breathed life into my soul, reminding me I was a survivor and still had life to live.
My savior is a biker.
A man tortured by his own scars. A man broken like me, maybe even a little lost too.
I want to be his remedy.
I want to heal him.
I want to return the favor and be his savior.
This is our story, a story neither of us knew how to write until we found each other.
Uncontrollable Temptations is book #3 in the Tempted Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted an ARC of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
Ok so the blurb makes Bulldog sound like a complete nutter and I was sooooo looking forward to this love story with this unhinged guy. Is it weird that I’m disappointed that Bulldog was normal for 99% of the time?
Don’t get me wrong he had psycho moments but they were teeny tiny flashes and then he went right back to sane again.
I really liked Bulldog/Jack he was a big ole teddy bear dressed up as a biker and honestly I didn’t really believe his badass persona. The way he was with his daughter and with Reina showed his true colours as a really nice guy.
Reina was an oddity, when we are first introduced to her she is broken, she won’t interact with people or embrace life. Yet within a day of having spoken to Jack properly she’s moving on with her life and practically a different person!
I didn’t really like her until right at the end when she is with Blackie and then I loved her inner strength and the way she found her backbone and fought for life instead of just letting circumstances break her down.
I honestly think that Blackie is my favourite character, he’s incredibly complex and intriguing and I can’t wait to read his and Lacey’s book.
Jimmy was a great bad guy, but like all good bond villains he spilled his plan far too easily and at times he’s was tongue in cheek funny.
This book was ok, I read it fairly quickly and I’m intrigued to find out what happens next in the series. But I would have loved for it to be more intense, for Jack to be completely nuts, for Reina to be much harder to help and for Jimmy to be much more dangerous.
Uncontrollable Temptation gets 3.5 stars from me.

SYNOPSIS: Anthony Bianci
Since I was a kid all I ever wanted to be was a gangster. I wanted to be feared, to be respected, and for everyone to know my name.
And then she came into my life.
I never planned on falling in love with the mob boss’ daughter. She was forbidden but somehow she became mine. She made me crave things I didn’t even know existed and made me forget about the things I thought I wanted. My quest for power faded away and was replaced by my undying love for her.
Until reality bit me in the ass and I was sent to prison for three years, doing time for a crime I didn’t commit.
Now I’m out and she is creating a life for herself, just like I always wanted for her. Only I’m not a part of that life. I won’t ruin her any more than I already have with my poisonous lifestyle.
No matter how tempted I am.
I wanted him from the very first time I laid eyes on him.
He was everything to me, my first love and probably my last.
Then my father ruined our perfect little life, and he walked away from me.
I tried to fight for him, for our love, but he pushed me away.
When the love you crave is beautiful, yet forbidden, you can’t help being tempted.
So I’ll fight for him. For us.
Even if I’m the only one fighting.
SYNOPSIS: Michael Valente…
My father was the Underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me. My life was in shambles until Victor Pastore, one of New York’s most notorious gangsters and my late father’s best friend, recruited me to work for him.
Everyone expected me to walk in my father’s shadow, to be the prodigal son, the next big thing to hit the mob. I was torn between filling those expectations and walking the straight line my mother wished I had. Nothing made sense and I felt as if I was just passing through life.
The only beacon of light in my otherwise dark world was the one girl that was off limits to me. The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul.
She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.
My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s nightclubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki. I struggle for people to acknowledge me for the woman I am and not for the men in my life. I’m fighting a losing battle.
There is only one person who sees me for me, my Mikey.
He’s hot as hell.
He’s completely unattainable, but oh so tempting.
