Release Day Blitz & Review: Anguish by Bella Jewel

Anguish Banner
Title: ANGUISH (Jokers' Wrath MC, #3)
Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: October 27, 2014
There are a lot of things in this world that are easy to escape from. Having a son you didn't ask for isn't one of them. Mack is a nomad. He likes his own space and he struggles with emotion. His past is grey and his future looks about the same. That is until his ex-girlfriend dies and his son is handed over to him. A two month old baby he didn't know existed. Until now. His world comes crashing down around him. Desperate, he hires a nanny. Jaylah has gotten herself into some serious trouble, so when she sees the job opening for a nanny pop up, she jumps on it. Of course she's not a nanny, but she figures she can pull it off. I mean, how hard can it be? She's thrown into a world of diapers, hourly feedings and a whole lot of laundry. She's also introduced to the most rugged, gorgeous man she's ever had the pleasure of meeting. The best part, he's the baby's father. The worst part, he's a biker. Their sexual tension is huge, but he's a hard nut to crack. She'll get in, though. She makes it her mission to break through the wall Mack has built so high around himself. Her world is about to spiral out of control, and she's taking Mack along for the ride.
Candi's 5* Review:

Mack got the shock of his life at the end of book 2 when a woman shows up at his front door handing him a baby and telling him he is the father. A baby he knew nothing about, a baby he doesn't even want bc it brings him even more heartache so he is forced to hire a nanny but Mack is not an easy guy to get along with so that job proves to be more difficult then it should be.......until Jaylah.

Jaylah finds herself in trouble bc of her no good ex boyfriend. She needs a good paying job and she needs it asap!! When she sees the ad looking for a nanny she thinks she has found an easy perfect way but there is just one problem....Jaylah knows nothing about how to care for a baby but little Diesel won't be her only hurdle to cross, it will be his father, Mack.

OMG I loved Jaylah and her strong, sassy attitude. Mack should scare the life out of her but she is the only one he knows with balls enough to stand up to him. There are so many times she has me laughing my butt off my kids thought I was going crazy. As hard as Mack tries to fight his feelings for Jaylah he knows with each passing day that proves harder and harder. Will he wake up and let Jaylah in before its to late?

Bella Jewel...I freaking love you and every time I think I have found my favorite book of yours you go and write another amazing one making it more difficult to choose. I can't wait for more on the Jocker's Wrath MC and I am dying to get my hands on Marcus and Katina's book!!

Angela's 5* Review:
Mack is a biker. He doesn't put up with BS but when he is handed a baby he knew nothing about he does what every man in his position would do, he hires a nanny. Little does he know that the life he is used to just became a little less easy and a whole lot sassier!!
Jaylah needs money, pronto! When she finds an ad about a nanny position she jumps at the chance. What Jaylah doesn't know is life for her is about to change in a Very BIG way!
Can Mack accept the baby he didn't even know existed? Can Jaylah be the nanny she needs to be while keeping her secret?

I admit that when I read Anguish I had not read the first two books in the series and for me it was a great standalone. I didn't feel like I needed to read the first two book in order to enjoy this book. I have went back since reading this one and read the first two but for those of you scared to read it because of it being part of a series you don't have to worry about feeling like you are missing half the story. I loved Mack and Jaylah's story. I felt that it was original and I was hooked from the start. Even though Mack could be a scary guy, he did have some great qualities that made me fall for him in a big way. I understood why he was hesitant and I am so glad that things worked out for him and his son the way they did. Jaylah, well that girl was awesome! I loved her spunk and her ability to accept a job as a nanny even though she was totally clueless about how to take care of a baby. That added much needed humor to a more serious story. She didn't let things get her down, she was a strong heroine and I appreciated that. I am so glad that she got the ending she deserved!

I am looking forward to Marcus's story. In fact as soon as I finished Anguish I headed over to Amazon and Pre-Ordered 'Til Death for $0.99!!

“You stole my fuckin’ drugs.” The foot at my throat presses me further into the cold, scratchy pavement. I gasp, my fingers clawing at fleshy ankles. His skin doesn’t budge; my nails are too short to break the flesh that I’m so desperately scraping at. It does nothing to move him, or send him on his way. Instead, he pushes harder, cutting off more of my air supply. “That’s not exactly how it went down,” I croak, struggling. “You were meant to deliver them; instead you fuckin’ sold them, and ran with the money.” He’s right about that. I did take the drugs and sell them. I had good reason—my boyfriend was in trouble, and I was doing anything I could to get him out of trouble. I didn’t think ahead. I didn’t realize that I’d then owe a very unhappy drug dealer money. Not my finest moment, that’s for damned sure. “I had no choice . . . I was helping someone I care about.” He presses his boot down further into my throat, and my air supply narrows down to a dangerous level. My head pounds as the blood and oxygen are cut from my brain. “I bet that person ain’t here helpin’ you tonight, now, are they?” No, he’s right about that. Samuel is probably sleeping with someone else. The moment his debt was cleared, he left me. The dirty, cheap fucker left me. Now I’m dealing with the backlash. A furious drug dealer who wants his money. Money I don’t have. “Don’t I get,” I gasp, “one chance to get your money?” He glares down at me through angry grey eyes. I squirm again as my vision starts flittering in and out. Shit, I’m going to pass out and he’s probably going to kill me, or worse, drag my helpless body away to do God knows what with. “I have m-m-m-money,” I croak. “If you had money, you wouldn’t have stolen my drugs.” “I . . .” God, I’m on the edge. “I can get it. I s-s-s-swear.” He stares at me, and for each second he does, my vision swims. Then, much to my relief, he lifts his boot off and reaches down, hurling my weak body up. He pulls me close, so close that our noses touch. My knees wobble and I have to push all my focus into not falling flat on my face and giving him another chance to take me. “Listen, and listen fuckin’ good. You’ve got two weeks, and trust me, that’s me bein’ fuckin’ generous. Get my money, or I come for you.” Shit. I nod. “Don’t try and run. You do, I’ll fuckin’ find you.” I close my eyes, take a deep, burning breath and nod again. “Two weeks.” Then he’s gone. And I know . . . I just know . . . I’m in deep, deep shit.
