Five Random Facts.

1) I come from a family of book lovers but I never enjoyed reading as a child. I found it to be more of a chore than a passion. I was a tomboy and preferred climbing trees and making bush dens to reading. Crazy I know!

I picked up a book my mum left lying around one day called ‘Bubbles in Trouble.’ It was laugh out loud funny and had me hooked. My love of reading came from that series but I never went out of my way to find books. I’d just give them a go if they were in the house.

It wasn’t until a certain sparkling vampire came to big screen that I picked up a book that gave me a whole new love of reading. I became hooked… not sure it was a good thing for the hubby but it was a great thing for me.

From my new found love of reading became a new passion ~ blogging. Sharing books that have touched me in some way became more than just a passion because I found a best friend. When Natalie asked me to join her on Island Lovelies Book Club we didn’t really know each other well. I’d seen her speaking with authors I enjoy and we built from there. Now she’s like a sister from another mister!!!

I started writing a book that wouldn’t leave my mind. Winger Demons MC started to take over my every thought, never letting me forget about it. Half way through writing book one I had a synopsis pop in my head from nowhere, literally just came to me as if I was reading the synopsis on someone else book and I knew that story needed telling, but I put it on the back burner.

For days the idea wouldn’t leave me and more and more details started defining in my mind. The characters wouldn’t leave me, wouldn’t let me rest, read, or write. They wanted out! I contacted Natalie and asked her opinion on the idea, and she loved it.

Corrupted, Warped and Avowed came from there.

Would you believe me if I told you I’ve only met Natalie twice in person? It’s true. The first time we met we shared a bed in London, both drunk from a VIP launch party for Jodi Ellen Malpas’ This Man series paperback release.

2) My favourite subject at school was math. I loved anything to do with problem solving, numbers, and algebra. That love led me to accounting.

3) I’m a massive animal lover. I currently have 2 rabbits, a hamster, a love bird, two giant African snails, three dogs, a tank of fish, and 16 chickens… yes they all have names, they are pets! All our chickens have been hatched from an incubator.

4) Family is my biggest love. Nothing comes before family, they are my world. I have a nickname chosen by my oldest nephew at 18 months old. He couldn’t say Alicia, and instead began calling me Sab ~ where that came from we have no idea. To my nephews I became Santa. If they misbehaved my sister would call to tell Santa (me) and I’d have to speak with the boys about being good…. they really believed it was really Santa for years. My nephews also believed I was magic. I could do a few easy tricks that blew them away. The joys of children never cease to amaze me.

5) I have an addiction of taking photos of the moon. Nothing fascinates me more than seeing it zoomed in and capturing such a beautiful object to look at whenever I chose. Geeky, I know, but I love it!!

Destined Havoc by Nina Levine 
 
A man who walked away from it all.
A woman who craves it all.
A destiny they never saw coming.


Havoc Caldwell lost everything two years ago and left town a bitter and hard man. Now he lives life as a nomad with no ties or commitments to anyone but himself and his club, Storm MC.

Carla Walker is searching for more out of life. She grew up with no father, and her family struggled to make ends meet. Now she wants it all – a man who will make her his number one priority, a successful career, and a family of her own.

A chance encounter leads to a one night stand, and neither expect it to go any further. Havoc has no desire for a relationship and Carla could never see herself settling down with a biker. Sometimes though, a destiny you could never imagine exists and as much as you fight it, there’s no way you can escape it.

My Review 
 
I’ve been a massive fan of Nina since before she published Storm, her note teasers had me hooked right from the get go, and as soon as J entered my life I’ve been addicted. Nina has a way with words, she sucks you in and makes you fall in love. I’m going to be honest, J has always been my favourite, there is just something about a growly alpha male that gets me every time and J sure is a growly alpha male.  
  
 All of Nina’s characters are easy to connect with and are kickass, male and female. She creates a world for her readers to get lost in. When I heard that a new badboy was coming to town I nearly wet my pants. Pure excitement filled me when she started releasing teasers – hot teasers!!
 
Havoc is here, he’s here to make an impression, and he’s here to stay. Nina has just knocked J off my top biker spot and given me Havoc, but I’m not complaining… he is worth it. I devoured Destined Havoc straight away and fell in love all over again. 
 
Carla is a kickass chick, she’s easy to connect with emotionally and easy to sympathise for. Havoc and Carla together create an explosive mix of pure hot steamy scenes, scenes that will have you reaching for your partner or B.O.B. 
 
All I can say is you’d be crazy not to pick up the Bad Boys of Romance – A biker anthology box-set, nine new biker books with hot alpha males for just $.99/£.77. I’m off now to dive into the other eight books, and get lost in a biker world.
 
Destined Havoc is easy 5 stars and I know the rest will be.
