I was a fraud.
Lying to cover my past.
But when you’ve grown up in a world that has caused so much pain, you’d do almost anything to try and escape the guilt.
For years I lived in hell, paying my dues.
I had perfected a smile that no one could see through.
Except for him.

I was a fighter.
It burned in my blood.
It was something I couldn’t escape, and while other fighters were out to make money and prove their worth, all I gave a damn about was the club and protecting the people I loved.
Seeing the spark in her eyes, I was instantly addicted. There was this chaos that whipped around her, it was beautiful and fierce, but I could tell it was used to keep people away.
When the heat of my anger radiated off me, she didn’t run, she stepped closer.
So I knew I had to use it to keep her warm.

The demons of her past are coming back for her.
And they’re about to realize she’s no longer standing alone.

Laken – The Phoenix Club Girl Diaries Book 2 by Addison Jane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read both Kennedy and Laken’s stories back to back as my intro to Addison Jane. I can’t say that I love everything about the author’s style of writing, but both the stories were solid AND they intrigued me enough to go back to the beginning with Harmony’s story. I was not only intrigued to find out about the MC, but also the connections it had in the world (if you’re lost by this statement then you’re just gonna have to jump right in like I did and find out what I’m talking about LOL)

From my perspective, LAKEN is not a standalone. I do not recommend you start with this book. You should really read Kennedy’s story first in order to get a full picture of the how/when/etc thing to Laken’s history/background. I mean it isn’t a duet or anything, but the stories go together. You’re going to have to trust me on this.

Now that I’ve read a few of the other books by this author I can tell you that if you’re a fan of the author, she’s done you proud with this new series. Addison Jane is consistent. Her story-lines are … enormous, not over-the-top, but grandiose for sure. Her books are also very inclusive so the club’s ARC will follow thru each book along with the spotlight member going after their HEA. Laken’s story did not disappoint in any of these traits. To be honest, the story didn’t disappoint in much of anything. There are random plot points that still baffle me and left me wondering why in they heck they were even in the book, but I’m beginning to see (from going back to the beginning with the previous series) this might actually be part of the author’s charm LOL

This turned out to be a really great experience for me as a reader. I love to read MC romance fiction and this author has written a good MC series from the perspective of the club girls and not the actual members. I’m sure there are others out there like this, but it isn’t the norm, so for me, it’s impressive and new and unique.

Addison Jane is a born and bred kiwi girl with a passion for romance and writing.

When she gets the chance she enjoys the little things in life such as reading, dancing, music, and Facebook, but her world really revolves around the little girl who calls her Mum. It’s an awkward balance between alpha males and Disney princesses but it works.

Growing up on a small farm next to the beach will always make her a country girl at heart. But since moving away to a small town close to the city she’s discovered a dangerous love for shopping.

Writing stories has been something that’s come naturally since she was young, and with the massive support of her friends and family, she finally decided to step out of her comfort zone and share them with the world.

She enjoys bringing her books to life with strong female leads, sexy passionate men and a rollercoaster of twists and turns that lead to the happily ever after that her readers desire.
