The Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Lies and Illusions” from Avelyn Paige’s series; Heaven’s Rejects MC. (review below)
Growing up as MC royalty, my path was set, but it was never my destiny. Liberated by my father’s death, I left the Heaven’s Rejects Clubhouse to make my own way in life. But fate had other ideas. My brother’s club was the only option, once a target had been painted on my back, because of one of my patients. I never expected that going home would result in my entire world being flipped upside down, at the hands of the man meant to protect me. With him as a bodyguard, my heart never stood a chance. Could I sacrifice my soul to go back to the life I left behind?
Falling in love with a prim and proper princess wasn’t anywhere on my agenda, but from the moment I saw her, it was game over. Hiding behind a screen name, I carried on an online relationship with her for months, under the guise of club business. But I wanted more than just an online fling. Now that she’s here, needing protection from the club, I have a choice to make. She wants nothing to do with the MC life, much less have a relationship with anyone associated with it. But I’m determined to show her how much she means to me. Am I really willing to give up my brothers and the club all for her?
The game is just now beginning, but in reality I might only have one life left.

WOO WHOOOO I loved this book. The author has written an awesome storyline with MC action, intrigue and romance from cover to cover. As for the characters what is not to love: a clubhouse full of hot bikers, a lot of which are married to strong women that keep them grounded.
I won’t get into the storyline too deep because I don’t want to spoil things for you but Lies and Illusions is Presley (the Prez’s sister and Princess Royalty to the Heaven’s Rejects) and VooDoo, the club’s Tech Guy. I know right, what’s hotter than a geeky guy with looks and a brain. Presley doesn’t want anything to do with MC life because she sees things as they were when her Dad ran the club (all sex, guns, drugs, women and darn near anything illegal). So she leaves. She takes her college education and becomes a therapist. Fast forward a couple years and Presley is sought out by the FBI to treat Ginny, a woman in Protective Custody. But when the bad guys catch up to her and Ginny they have nowhere to run for help but to the Heaven’s Reject Bikers. That is where Ginny reunites with her brother Ratchet and Presley her brother Raze (the Prez) and of course she meets VooDoo. But Voo Doo has secrets too. Secrets that even Raze doesn’t know. (Trust me when I say the book is appropriately named Lies and Illusions).
This wonderfully written storyline will have you glued to the pages. What’s going to happen? Can the club keep the girls safe from the targets on their backs? Does VooDoo’s Secret destroy his relationship with the club, with Raze or Presley? I can’t recommend the book or the series enough. If you love MC books, The Heaven’s Rejects Series is a must for your #TBR List. 2 Thumbs up for a great 5 star book/series.
Lord have mercy this book grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let me go until I reached the very end. The Heaven’s Rejects are back and are picking right up from where book 3 left off. We have Ginny, Rachet’s thought to be dead sister resurfacing and Voodoo checking up on the Doctor who is working with Ricca. But then Voodoo (“V”), becomes enamored with the Doc and begins to communicate with her through a dating app, then by texts. He falls for her, she falls for him. But she has no idea that he is in an MC and he has no idea who she really is. Yep, things get really interesting when Presley and her patient run for their lives, right back to the MC that she vowed she would never return to, straight into the arms of her brother Mikey, AKA Raze, the President of the Heaven’s Rejects MC. NOW, things have just gotten really interesting, and entertaining. But the trouble that is following the two girls is more that the MC has ever had to handle, and it will put not only the girls lives at risk, but the entire club as well.
Voodoo is so sweet, and so in love with Presley. But he is holding a secret that he knows will certainly blow whatever they have clean out of the water. Presley grew up in the MC, with a father that should have been put down long, long ago. She leaves her home on the premise of beginning an internship that will greatly help her career, and her brother reluctantly let’s her go. Neither of them knowing what this internship will lead to until years later when she and her patient show up at his clubhouse unannounced, and scared. There is a storm brewing and it will be a category 5 hurricane before all is said and done, if someone doesn’t come up with a plan.
This book is exceptionally well written with a storyline that will have you hanging onto every word, every page. Do not let this series, this book pass you by. They are rough and tough, but you will fall for each one of the Heaven’s Rejects MC brothers! I highly recommend this read.
