Mega Review: Meghan March’s Mount Trilogy

A few weeks ago I managed to fly through 3 books from Meghan March. Meghan is a new to me author that I found in 2017 and she writes a lot of books set in my favorite city, New Orleans.  So of course, I have been working my way through her whole reading list, but this series was something else!! I cannot believe I am just finding her, but I am oh so glad I did!  Her writing is for the mature audience, but even though it is a little (ok i will be honest- A LOT) dirty, it is ok.  If you like to be a little dirty, then go out and get this series and thank me later!  So, here is my review for the three books in the Mount Trilogy- Ruthless King, Defiant Queen and Sinful Empire.

Ruthless King (Mount Trilogy, #1)Ruthless King by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely LOVED everything about this book- as many of you are aware, and if you aren’t then I haven’t done a good job of indicating in my reviews exactly HOW much- but I LOVE books set in New Orleans. Not only is this book set in my favorite city, but it explores some of the deep and dirty secrets of it. I was hooked after reading the first few pages.
Kiera and Lachlan Mount’s story is nothing short of amazing. I loved their chemistry, even though he is a bad boy and she is the “good” girl, you quickly start to learn that she has a little devil in her too. They chemistry was instant, it was hot and it was so intense- just how I like it.
Keira inherited the Seven Sinner’s Distillery and is doing everything in her power to make it be the best distillery in New Orleans. (Hello Lady Boss!) Mount owns everything in the city and thanks to Keira’s late ex husband he plans to own her too- in every way possible, and Meghan’s writing makes you want to never stop reading about how he plans to own her.
In my opinion, this book was much hotter than any of the 50 shades books. There was the dominance aspect for sure, but Keira is boss and held her ground. You might feel like you should hate him at first, and he has made appearances in Meghan’s other books so I had a preconceived notion of him. But you don’t- you realize you actually sort of love him, and it messes with your mind in all sort of good ways! This book is dirty, so if you get offended easily, this is not for you.
I give this book 5 stars because it was beyond a page turner. It devoured me and spit me out. It was so well written, I had no intention of putting it down until I was done. And then I needed more. I highly recommend it if you have somehow missed this book!

Defiant Queen (Mount Trilogy, #2)Defiant Queen by Meghan March

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book made me think of the quote- behind every great King, there is surely an even better Queen. And man is Keira that queen for Lachlan.
I enjoyed this book because we got to see a different, softer side to Lachlan and we got to know a little bit about what made him tick. He is still the bad ass, hardcore, don’t mess with him guy, but we and even some of his associates get to see he might be a little bit more into Kiera than he originally let on. This book takes you on a whirlwind and it doesn’t let you feel better when you get off the ride. It leaves you wanting more.
Keira is also flirting with danger as much as possible. I think she also realizes what hold she has over Mount, but while she wants to push his buttons, she also wants to make him happy. Their attraction is still insane as ever and if anything has gotten stronger in book 2. This book is so wrong, but so right. It makes you want to be bad and throw all of your reserves about love out the window.
I give this book 4 stars because it was insanely good! There was a lot of back story, but still important to the overall story. I still couldn’t set it down and ignored all of my responsibilities in life until I was done with it, and then wanted more. It is also for the mature audience only, but like I said before a little dirty doesn’t bother me.

Sinful Empire (Mount Trilogy, #3)Sinful Empire by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sinful Empire was the last book in the Mount Trilogy and it was everything I wanted and more. It was everything and nothing I expected. I was surprised at the events that took place, because I honestly did not see that coming. It seems as if every aspect of their life that we learned about in the prior two books somehow made its way back in and then blew your brains! I won’t say too much more because I don’t want to give anything away- but in this book we find out exactly how and why Kiera and Lachlan first met. And then we see exactly how bad Lachlan’s world is because the little bit of good he has found with Kiera could be taken away from him.
These books rocked my world and left me with such a bad book hangover. I have no idea how anything will top this trilogy because it was just amazing.
I gave this book 5 stars because it gave me everything I wanted- a happy ending, a little bit of mess in between and a nice wrap up to the first two books.
Meghan’s writing is phenomenal in my opinion. I love the way she tells a story. I loved this series. I loved getting to know the characters and everything about them. I highly recommend this series and would suggest you go out and get them all now!! And then hide in your room and binge read until you are done- then come and find me on Instagram or message my blog and we can talk about how much you are obsessed with it too!

Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.

I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.

That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.

A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.

Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.

Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.

My old friend, Mr. Fortier.

But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.

When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.

Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.

I absolutely adored this book- I loved the banter between the characters, I loved the back story, and I loved where the book was set- my favorite and only Crescent City! I will also say that I have never highlighted passages in a book as much as I did this one! The attention to detail of the city and area were also a pleasant surprise and you can really tell that the author did her homework on getting it right. From the all girls school to the neighborhood names and debutante balls- this book was a straight home run!

I loved Lauren and Beau’s story and I loved how the stage was set from the very beginning. It’s a hard to be raised in the South and especially hard if you fall from grace- trust me you will never live that down. But when Lauren and Beau first meet, the circumstances aren’t right and a storm separates them for a long time. When Lauren decides to move back home – because trust me you always end up back home at some point!- she never expects to see or even feel anything for Beau. Little does she know that he has just been waiting and working towards being everything she could possibly want. Because now the circumstances are right, and he isn’t letting her go this time.

This book was funny and a true Rom-Com! “My blonde curls are cooperating for once in my life, so I take a second and shoot a quick thank you up to the savior, Paul Mitchell, that is.” I mean, if you live down South, you know ALLLLL about good hair days (and how rare they are thanks to the wonderful humidity!). It was these sorts of sayings scattered throughout the book that not only made the story fun, but also showed that the author really understood the setting.

I give this book 5 stars because it was such a good book! It wasn’t overly sexual and it didn’t have to be. It was a good book on its own. It has great writing, I loved each and all of the characters and I felt like I was back home reading a story about one of my high school friends. I feel like when you have a connection with a book, you just do, and this book was definitely one of my favorites of 2015 so far! I would definitely recommend it and cannot wait to read others by R.S. Grey!

Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!

Identical twins Beau and Duane Winston might share the same devastatingly handsome face, but where Beau is outgoing and sociable, Duane is broody and reserved. This is why perpetually level-headed Jessica James has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life. Whereas Duane and Jessica have always been adversaries. She can’t stand him, and she’s pretty sure he can’t stand the sight of her…

But after a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. Jessica James has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane’s disdain; therefore she’s unprepared for the reality that is Duane’s insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks.

When Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?

Truth or Beard is book #1 in the Winston Brother’s series. Each book is a standalone, full length, contemporary romantic comedy/women’s fiction novel, and follows the exploits and adventures of one of the six Winston Brothers
