She’s been broken by life. He’s always had it easy. Can they trust each other
enough to be the fix they both need?

I used to wonder if there was something wrong with me, because there was nothing wrong with me. I’m a happy, well-adjusted, laid-back guy, or so I always thought. The reality, though, is I’ve been coasting through life, not thinking or feeling, just being

That is until everything goes wrong, and Emi comes crashing into my life in the worst way possible. Yet for all the drama, angst, and heartache she brings with her, she’s also shown me what it means to be human—to feel, love, and hurt. She’s taught me what it meant to be alive. 

She’s so fragile, yet she’s also the strongest person I know—a true survivor. She’s been to hell and back but wakes up every morning ready to fight another day. 

And when tragedy strikes and my perfect world falls apart, she’s the one helping me pick up the pieces. Yet each time she needs me to be there for her, she pushes me away.  

But I refuse to just walk away. She’s taught me that real life isn’t easy, and if something’s worth wanting, it’s worth fighting for.

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.

Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.

Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.

An avid reader, Ellis always knew she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017.

She should never have stayed.

I should never have kept her.

Bad guys like me? We crave violence, danger, and someone warm in our beds. 

Someone like her? She is beautiful and surprisingly strong. 

But saving her was a mistake for both of us. It would have been easier if I’d let my MC kill her when they were getting revenge on her uncle. 

Now it’s too late. 

I don’t want sympathy or forgiveness. 

I just want her. 

Blow Out, a motorcycle romance set in the Steel Veins Motorcycle Club, is filled with heat, nail-biting violence, and heart-racing adventure. Blow Out has been reedited, packaged, and is complete with NEW material.

I felt it through his fingertips the first time he grabbed me, back when I hated him and everything burned around us. Yet, I couldn’t accept it then.
Then much later, I felt it again through every raised hair on the nape of my neck as we sped off that final time.
Hope.
The low, tumultuous vibrations of his bike pulsed their way throughout my chest. I squeezed him so tight that I thought my arms might squeeze him in half. He hardly noticed.
With that shithole bar slipping into the blackness behind us and the crisp night air whipping at my hair, I burrowed my head between his shoulder blades, feeling overwhelmed by this uncertainty. These feelings… they were too elusive to name but so overpowering when they hit.
It was scorching, violent, dirty joy in its purest form.
All that had raced through my head when they brought me in for questioning. What was Muse’s Place? How far away were they taking me? Would I ever see my parents again? But above all, who was this man, and why did he keep me alive?
Eventually, the questions stopped. Not because I found any real answers but because I started living. For the first time, I really felt alive.
It was horrible. I didn’t have time for questions because I couldn’t control anything around me anymore. All I could do was listen, watch, and pray.
I didn’t pray anymore.
I realized that back home when I was safe, I was always so pent up, so uptight. I felt like I was waiting for something or that I needed to start something. Whatever it was, I didn’t have it, so I filled my mind and heart with questions to distract myself from that… lingering emptiness I carried around. What time was my next shift? How the fuck was I going to make it through my accounting class this semester? Did I reach my step count for the day?
Looking back, it was all so meaningless. I can’t relate to that girl anymore. I used to know hermebut now… I wasn’t so certain. Did I even like the person I was turning into?
What would it take to survive in the world that I was now a prisoner of?
I was pretty sure that before all this was over, I was going to die. But there was something comforting in knowing that if I did, he’d be with me and we’d die together. So much had happened these past few days. There were so many things I didn’t knowlike where the hell we were going now or even if I could fully trust him.
But he was all I had. My only lifeline in this dark, dirty, and dangerous biker world.
And that was fucking terrifying.
We rode away from Muse’s Place faster than I’d ever experienced. His bike’s engine roared like Death’s hot laughter, reminding us of the decisions we’d made tonight and how they’d further change our lives forever.
But as hopeless as everything seemed in this one, fleeting moment, I had exactly what I’d always been searching for. The one thing I couldn’t ever even put into words.
He is Remy Daniels of the Steel Veins Motorcycle Club. He’s a cold, heartless, and cunning murderer. He’s the worst person I’ve ever known.
My name is Star, and I can’t stop thinking about him.
God help me… I think I’m in love.

EXCERPT Tara turned and sucked in a quick breath. Where had this man been hiding? “He’s cute,” she whispered. Nancy nodded. “He works for the local paper.” “A reporter?” Nancy nodded. “I wonder what he’s doing here.” Tara hesitated then scooted off to help the man. “Hi, I’m Tara, Nancy’s assistant. Is there something I can help you with?” The reporter nodded. “Yes. Thank you.” He held out his hand. “I’m Adam, a reporter for the Tipton Tribune. I’m doing a story on the history of crime in Tipton County. It will be a then and now kind of thing. Unfortunately, the Tribune’s archives weren’t much help thanks to a fire in the early 80s.” “That’s an interesting topic. What inspired you?” “The hit and run victim.” His tone gave her pause and she noted the furrow of his brow. His full beard hid his mouth, but his soulful brown eyes spoke volumes. “Did you know her?” He cleared his throat and shrugged. “Since I grew up here I’m guessing I might have, but the identity of the victim has not yet been released.” It must be horrible not knowing. Hopefully it wasn’t anyone he knew. Death was always a tragedy, but when you knew the person it was so much worse. “It’s been quite a day in Tipton. I found an abandoned baby on my way into the library this morning.” “You’re kidding?” Maybe she shouldn’t have said anything about Amelia.

Enemy of My Enemy by Ivy Lucas – Book Blog Tour


Author: Ivy Lucas
Title: Enemy of My Enemy
Series: Phoenix Warriors MC, Book 1
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: October 17, 2019
Cover Designer: Soxsational Cover Art

Available now!
Amazon: US | UK | AU | CA
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Right? What if he’s my lover? What if he’s my enemy?

Secrets, double lives, and a hidden agenda collide with hope, humor, and adventure as the passion between two star-crossed lovers ignites.

Hawk is a biker driven by a singular purpose, fueled by an all-consuming need. A need for vengeance. He’s spent the last four years planning his retaliation, and it’s time to strike; it’s time to annihilate his enemy.

Zoe has one rule in life: no regrets. She lives on the edge and is willing to risk everything for her crusade. A crusade for justice. She’s spent the last four years on a crime spree of epic proportions, all for the good of the cause. All to destroy her enemy.

Escalating war consumes the underworld of Broadwater Bay, an underworld where Hawk and Zoe live on opposite sides, behind enemy lines. Will they be able to trust each other long enough to discover that they have the same enemy?

Because the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Or is it lover? Or is it another enemy?



Before I can second guess myself, my right hand slides to the small of my back, fingertips brushing along the rough grip as I latch onto my Glock. Whipping my arm around and bringing my other hand up to stabilize the butt, I aim my weapon square at the chest of the man who wears the colors of my sworn enemies.
“Yep, you got balls, and you’re stupid.” He laughs at me.
Laughs!
“You think this is a joke?” I challenge him.
“You tell me, Princess. When it comes down to it, do you really have it in you to pull the trigger?” the biker asks, seeming to be completely at ease as he stares down the barrel of my gun.
“Do you really want to find out?” I bluff.
“Gotta say, the idea of taking another bullet isn’t top of my to-do list; it hurts like a bitch.”
“I know.” The words of agreement escape my mouth.
The biker’s eyes widen for a fraction of a second before his mask of amusement settles back into place.
“The recovery though”—he sends me an enigmatic grin—”let’s just say the girls around here are fuckin’ good at taking care of a man who’s been injured in the line of duty, almost makes it worth it.”
It’s taking everything in me to keep a steady hand, keep the steel in my eyes, hold my ground, and I’m doing it. So why is this guy treating me like a joke?
It takes less than ten seconds before I receive my answer.
Movement shifts across my peripheral vision. I don’t take my eyes off my target, not for a second, but I don’t need Kenzi’s superpower to tell me that at least five people, possibly six, are moving around me and taking position.
Two men step into my direct line of sight. One of them trains a gun on me. My eyes stare down the barrel and then to the man aiming it. He’s got a jagged scar running down the side of his face. Starting at his hairline, it bisects his right eyebrow, stopping there, and picking up again on his cheekbone, then it swoops down and outward across his cheek all the way to his jawline. It’s mesmerizing in its beauty, and more terrifying than the weapon the man holds.
Instinctively, I know he’s the least dangerous of the two men who now flank the hulk on the bike. The second man is unarmed, but his presence sends chills down my spine. He levels me with an icy stare, which holds me immobile.
“Venom, nice of you to join the party.” The man on the bike grins up at the lethal biker who’s taken position on his left. “Have you met Zoe? She’s got spunk. I think I’m a little jealous of Hawk.”



Ivy Lucas writes romantic suspense novels that feature a healthy dash of humor, kickass heroines, and hot alpha men. She is a dreamer, professional reality-escape-artist, and has a serious coffee addiction.

Ivy has always been obsessed with reading, and when she didn’t have her face buried in a book, which was often because she devoured them, she would make up her own stories to fill the void. Ivy’s imagination is a crazy and dangerous place to be, even for her independent, sassy female characters. It’s also the best place to meet sexy men who have that panty-dropping, anti-hero thing going on.

A woman of the world, Ivy was born in Holland, grew up in New Zealand, and spent a year living in Europe when she was a teenager. She traveled to Australia not long after finishing school for a one-year working holiday and never left. She now lives in sunny Queensland with her soul mate, their two kids, and a fluffy white cat.

Over the years Ivy has been a jack of all trades and master of none – until the day she decided to write down one of those stories she had floating around in her head. That was when she realized her passion for books was about more than just reading them. She had stories to tell and they were demanding to be told.
