review || UNCONTROLLABLE TEMPTATIONS { blog tour } by Janine Infante Bosco

Uncontrollable Temptations Cover
Janine Infante Bosco | February 6, 2016 | MC/Romantic Suspense
Tempted, book 3


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.

Until her.

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.
Reina DeCarlo

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.

{ excerpt } .

I’ll give you what you need as long as you keep giving me your sunshine.

She went off like a firecracker, her body igniting and convulsing as she found her light. The sweetest pussy I ever had, gripped me as she came all over my dick. My eyes rolled, and I pushed my hips and thrust my dick into her once, twice…then shouted her name as I pulled out just in time. My release spurting out, painting her exposed skin.

Covered in Parrish, branded by the Bulldog, Reina became my sunshine.

We were both fucked.

I stared at her long and hard as I pulled my jeans up, zipping the fly but not doing the button to give my swollen dick some relief. Her legs dropped off the table, and she bent over struggling with her jeans, looking at everything and anything other than me.

“Reina,” I started.

She reached for a dishtowel, wiping me from her before she pulled her pants up her legs. She turned around, her eyes blazing with fury and threw the dishtowel at me.

“You can leave now,” she said.

And there she went dismissing me again.

“Guess I was wrong ‘bout you,” I spat, baiting her, hoping to get her to turn around and look me in the eye. But I failed. Staring at her back angered me even more than the silence she offered me. “My dick ain’t straight-laced, and that pussy was still dripping.” I bit out, using my words as my weapon.

Her head bowed, her shoulders slumped and still she didn’t turn around to look at me.

Shunted, I cursed Reina and stalked out of her apartment, slamming the door behind me.

I shouldn’t be bothered. I got what I came here for. I got my taste of sunshine.

{ review } .

One of the most difficult characters for an author to write, and write well, would have to be a character with either a little known disease process, or with a process with huge stereotypes. Very few will attempt these characters, and far fewer will actually nail the character. Now, add the largest moment of grief and guilt in that character's life, and have it be a direct result of said process.

Enter Janine Infante Bosco and President of Satan's Knights MC, Jack "Bulldog" Parrish.

Rather than handling Jack Parrish and his mental illness with kid gloves, I found that Janine went 'balls to the wall' and made a great case for this man. Suffering from manic depression, the one word that has always had the ability to hurt was 'crazy' and the label is one that he fears he'll never get away from.

"I've cheated death a thousand times and I don't understand why he couldn't..."

I found Jack to be a well-rounded character and enjoyed the dark sides to his life. With the flashbacks and the at times self-hate, we as readers get to see the full growth this man takes. He certainly inspired a number of tears to fall.

Reina, too, had her own dark moments and as I'm prone to do, I enjoyed watching as she opened up to Jack -- from his first gruff introduction after his five weeks coming into the dinner, through to the end. These two have found little to trust in after a world of disappointments, but with just the little bit of good the other gives, they both have the ability to finally find sunshine.

This series keeps getting better. Ms. Bosco's ability to write this MC world is definitely great; her characters have flaws, but they also have the ability to love -- with just the right person. I am so excited to see that Riggs is next.
