I received a copy of this book from Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

Oh my God. I need to pause. Like for a few minutes. Going in, I had no idea how this was going to turn out, since I haven’t been introduced to this author before. Man, oh man, this book is a dark, dirty, twisted, hot, emotional mess. And I loved every bit of it.

Vandal is the second book of the Ashes and Embers series from Carian Cole. It’s a dark tale of a man who loses someone important to him in a car accident. He finds what he needs from the widow of the other car he hit during the accident.

The hero and the heroine have this indescribable chemistry, as difficult to define as their pull to each other. Their both people who have been through loss and grief. They needed each other, even if they didn’t know how much. I loved Vandal’s dark character. I don’t think I can survive a man like him, but he is definitely a one in a million.

This book has been one hell of a ride, one that I enjoyed to the fullest. I can’t believe the things that happened in the book. I haven’t read the first book in the series. However, from the secondary characters that were introduced in this book, they sounded great too. I recommend reading the entire series. It’s up to you how you read them. Vandal can be read on its own, like what I did. But if you want to know the secondary characters well, you should read the series in order. Any way you decide to read, you definitely will have the best time of your life.




I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published on September of 2014. Vandal, the second novel in this series is publishing in February of 2015. I currently have approximately nine books slated for this series, as well as an MC series in the works, and a few stand-alones coming in 2015 onward.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
