Title: Protector
Author: Michelle Horst

Release Date: November 2nd 2016

I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person. I wanted to save the world, or at least leave my stamp behind. In my own naïve way I thought I could bribe karma but life has a way of teaching us lessons.

I never knew how selfish I was until my life was ripped away from me.

Taken.

I’m forced to watch as they torture and kill my family … and I know I’m next.

I hear their screams.

I watch them die.

It’s the worst kind of torture

Then he comes. He made a promise to my brother. It’s the only thing keeping him bound to me.

A promise to protect me.

I should set him free of the promise … but I don’t. He’s my shield against karma. He’s my protector.

I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person. I wanted to save the world, or at least leave my stamp behind.

I’ve spent the last three years leaving my footprints wherever I felt my help was needed.

In my own naïve way I thought I could bribe karma. You know … if I do good then good will come my way. It’s worked so far, so why would I have any reason to doubt it.

At the age of twenty six I’m happy, that contented kind of happiness not many people ever find in their lives.

I have parents who love me. I have two brothers who I idolize, especially my oldest brother, Josh. No one can hold a candle to him.

I’m returning from Australia, after taking part in the annual Gouldian finch count. It was an amazing experience, counting all those colorful birds. Before that I traveled Africa for three years, lending a helping hand wherever I could. It made me feel good.

That’s the problem though, isn’t it?

I did it because it made me feel good. I didn’t do any of it for those people I was helping. I didn’t do it for the animals. No, I did it all for me – so karma would have to pay me back in kind.

That’s how it works. Right?

I always keep my slate clean. I’m always polite and hardworking. I always smile. I’m the funny one, the shoulder everyone can lean on.

That has to count for something, right?

Josh started this thing where he calls me his shooting star. Riley-Star. It caught on in the family. They always joke around and pretend to make wishes on me. I shine so bright. I’m the heart of the family … their little girl.

But every star has to burn out some time.

Life has a way of teaching us lessons. Karma, now there’s a peculiar thing. I never knew how selfish I was until my life was ripped away from me.

Me. Me. Me.

It was all about me.

Review: Karma by K.T. Fisher

Karma CoverTitle: Karma (Kings of Rebellion #1)
Author: K.T. Fisher
Release date: June 14th 2015
Genre:  Dark Erotica
Source: Author
Format: eARC
Rating: 4½ stars

*Thank you to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.

We first met Lauren in Rockstar’s Temptation, where she wasn’t the best sister to Maisy and tried to come between her and the man she loved. 

Lauren doesn’t know why she is such a bitch, but she is. There is no use denying it or hiding it. She believes in being who you are and fuck those who don’t like it. That also results in her not having many friends, if any, and not much family left. Even her boyfriend doesn’t want her anymore – well, he actually caught her in bed with his two friends and kicked her out. Her ex is pissed, and she soon realises the hard way that she never should have betrayed him. Yet, pretty-boy Andrew isn’t as innocent as she thought. In fact, it turns out he’s connected to one of the biggest gangs in America. 

Lauren is beaten and abused in every way possible. Her human rights are stripped, and she is treated like an animal. Blindfolded and gagged, Lauren has no idea what is going to become of her, or if she will ever get out of the mess she has found herself in. 

Karma has finally caught up with Lauren Ashford, but is this the end, or can someone out there help her? Are there men strong enough, or even brave enough, to face up to her captors?
When the toughest drug lords from Philadelphia come crashing into her kidnappers’ motorcycle club’s cabin, they find a beautiful girl chained up to a wall and made to live like a dog on the hard floor. She’s not the only one, though: beside Lauren, there are two other girls. Even these hard criminals can see that this isn’t right. In their world, women are treated with respect. 

From here, Lauren is given the greatest gift. To go home. Once back in the UK, Lauren is under the protection of the UK Kings of Rebellion crew and is shocked to find that even though they are dangerous, they treat her so much better. One of these men is Brandon, the oldest son and next in line to take over the family business. Is this the man that Lauren needs? Or do her old habits of being a “do now, think later” kind of bitch, come back to bite her in the ass? 

One thing is for certain, the president of the motorcycle club, who took her, wants her back… 

ONE SENTENCE.

KARMA IS SUCH A GRITTY, DARK AND AMAZING STORY THAT WILL LEAVE YOU MAKE YOU CRY, SMILE AND LAUGH!

Of course, one would feel as if her/his heart is being ripped into pieces by the author and later, the pieces will start mending and being nursed back to health before MISS K.T. FISHER WILL RIP YOUR HEART OUT AGAIN

Be nice bookies!

At least the author is kind enough to soothe your broken heart before ripping it again!

INTO PIECES THIS TIME!

So, I have never read any of K.T. Fisher’s novels yet. Karma is actually my first.

(Before anyone scream, YES, I CAN’T BELIEVE I HAVE NEVER READ HER NOVELS BEFORE!)

There are some…weird moments in this novel? Perhaps it could be the fact that I haven’t read about Lauren in Rockstar’s Temptation before, but in certain instances, I feel like she’s a little…um…is cheerful the word?

Or from another point of view, Lauren is a badass woman! Both physically and mentally, she is so strong and that is perhaps why I thought she is cheerful!?

Like I said, I didn’t believe how ‘bitchy’ Lauren is because I didn’t read the previous books, yet during her captivity, Lauren isn’t like that at all!

Polar opposites would be the term I use to describe her character!

Brandon ‘Grim’ is the sweetest, sexiest, intense and a really dangerous man when he wants to be! He’s so delicate when it comes to Lauren and I literally went ‘aww’ at their love!!

If you’re worried about the structure and writing of the novel, it is relatively fine!

Highly recommended for all readers, especially fans of Mandy Lou Dowson’s Retribution, Pepper Winters’ Monsters in the Dark series and Sarah Castille’s Full Contact will enjoy Karma!
