Ginagawa ko humihingi ako. Pakapalan na lang ng mukha. This is the first time this has ever happened to me, and to my family. Now I feel like a beggar, asking for clothes for my kids, since most of the donated clothes are for grownups. I just have to swallow my pride and beg. Families take shelter in the Tanza National High School Basketball court after a fire burnt down their houses.
After a quick assessment they concluded that each family needed a closed space to live in for the meantime.

Lists with This Book. And I had been looking forward to Bull's story since we met him in book 1. And how he was in this book, yes he was cruel at times to Mia and it was a bit hard to take.
Out of the Ashes - Michael Morpurgo
And I thought to myself, if this was a book with a brand new to me hero, I had not met before, I might not have been able to take his actions and behaviour. But, after book 1, where we know his history, we know just how deep the darkness in him is, what battle he fights on a daily basis just to keep on living, in this book, we knew why he was as he was. We also get some Bull POV here, and the guilt he lives with just magnifies when he meets Mia, as she gives him the first peace he has known in years. And he feels he does not deserve this peace.
What follows is probably the best book of the series, and I have truly enjoyed the previous books. It is so emotional and heart felt, and heart wrenching. But, while Bull is never going to be as openly affectionate as Cade and Brock, as that is just not who he is, how he was with "his girls" toward the end, was beautiful.
And we not only see Bull finally feel able to deserve a partner, we get to watch him fall in love not just with a woman, but with her daughter, and he changes in so many ways, from a broken shell of a man living in darkness, to a man, a father standing in the light. And while I feel this is Bull's story, maybe as we knew him and had hoped for HEA for him, Mia was just as engaging a character. Knowing she is hiding something, scared of something, ruining from that same thing, but she had created a beautiful life for her daughter, and their relationship was awesome. A beautiful 5 stars Oh, and Lexie and Killian!!
I need that book now. View all 7 comments. Jan 29, B.
Out of the ashes: the life, death, and rebirth of the "safer" cigarette in the United States.
Love rated it it was amazing. I have really loved all the books in this series but this book somehow takes it to another level. The characters were extraordinary, the story was amazing, and this is one of those books that will stand out among the hundreds of books you read. After moving far away from the only family they have Mia and her daughter Lexie find a new life. After a devastating loss Bull has no plans on opening himself up ever again and just living some days is hard.
She sparks something in him he though long dead but also terrifies him. Mia is like no woman he has ever scene and her daughter and her are something that pull at Bull. Neither are sure they can find the light at the end of the tunnel. I loved Bull, he was a phenomenal hero possessive and strong and protective and fierce.
Mia was funny and sweet and just as strong in her own right. Her first book, I loved. You could see that she would be a great author and had the potential to create some breathtaking books and did in book one. Her second book, which I also loved just made me more sure and had me saying yeah she is great and coming into her own. With this third book she has staked her claim and made her own voice in this genre that has become saturated and in the authors circle all together.
I knew she was great with both books one an two like I said I loved those books but this book is something else, five stars will never be enough. And on a small side note this author is so sweet, when it seems we are seeing more and more mean and nasty authors she is so sweet and kind, and you can tell she not only loves what she does she takes pride in it, and cares about her readers.

They had the spark, they had the chemistry, they had everything they needed to make this a wonderful book.

I have problems with reading badly or unedited books which is why I DNF'd Making the Cut, the first book in the series. This one is greatly improved, and the few errors there were didn't detract from my reading experience.
At first I thought Mia was going to get on my wick with her ridiculous decisions, and decided she wasn't the brightest bulb in the box.

The best of the 3 full length ones in the series. Some mild spoilerish info may follow I thought the mother-daughter relationship was adorable, and it reminded me of all the good stuff between the mum and daughter from the Gilmore Girls.
I loved seeing a fun, sensible and NOT "broken" teenage girl - there's not many out there in bookl Ding, ding, ding, Yes we have a winner here! I loved seeing a fun, sensible and NOT "broken" teenage girl - there's not many out there in booklandia and it makes for a nice change. We have a very cool heroine - fun, quirky in a good way, not a "try-hard" way , caring and while she's not superconfident, she's not a total doormat either.
Also, the hero and daughter relationship was somewhat like that of Joe and Vi's girls from Kristen Ashley's At Peace but without Joe's shit-for-brains hurtful moments to both the heroine and daughters. So it's all the good stuff that goes with an angst-ridden-tortured-hero but without crossing the line into too much alpha-hole-jerk-to-the-heroine territory. I also liked that though the angst level is high re: A great deal of the hero's angst was because the heroine was coming to mean so much to him and felt he didn't deserve it , and he feared what might happen to her because of who he is And so NOT because there was a new woman on the horizon and he didn't want her replacing the dead lover, or she couldn't replace the dead lover, or guilt because she was coming to mean more to him than his devotion to the dead lover or the dreaded "I love her in a different but just as good a way".
I also really loved the YA side romance of the heroine's daughter and the young guy the MC had taken on who will prospect with them as soon as he turns View all 6 comments.

I would not call it plagiarism, rather "inspired by. The h was still Anne Malcolm has basically rewritten Kristen Ashley's At Peace but imho, she has actually improved on it. The h was still a bit of a doormat. The secondary characters were great. This is definitely more of an ensemble rather than one on one romance.
The bikers and their families, the h's teenage daughter and her hot "baby biker" boyfriend, the rock band, were all living, breathing, well-developed characters that contributed to the plot. I was left wanting to read the other books in the series with the hope that the author could come up with her own creations rather than writing KA fanfic. Oct 09, Wendy rated it really liked it Shelves: Wow this one was so much better than book 1, which I didn't care for much. It definitely had an "At Peace" by Kristen Ashley vibe to it, yet there were big parts that were completely different. Even though I still found that the heroine gave in too easily, at least she wasn't a lame airhead like the heroine from book 1.
A lot of people commented that this book made them think of "The Gilmore Girls" and I would have to agree with them. This didn't bother me in the least because I love that series.

I also think that Mia was a great mom and her relationship with her daughter really made me laugh. This was so KA-like - it seemed to be fanfic. Too much like At Peace. The "witty" retorts and comments of the h and the daughter were too stilted and didn't seem natural - both got on my nerves. Took me days to read - wanted to DNF a couple of times but made myself persevere. I might have rated better if it was KA inspired not exactly like KA.
Don't know if I'll read other books by this author. Oct 27, Jos rated it liked it. I have to say that as much as I have been enjoying this series, I can't help but feel that this story about Bull and Mia was more on the disappointing side for me: Mia and Lexie's backstory, well mainly Mia, was heartbreaking and I mean when we finally get all the pieces of her broken past, I was crushed for her. I loved that she and Lexie were so close and that she was such a great mom BUT their humorous bantering back n forth for me, was annoying.
That sort of back n forth for me was so overdone that it kinda put a damper on the flow of the story. Now Bull and Mia Their first encounter, whoa, had me squirming in my seat. I still enjoyed the rest of the gang and look forward to the future stories for sure. I can't wait for Lexie and Killian's Sep 01, Tzelina rated it it was amazing.

On the other hand, it didn't have a KA vibe. It had recurrent areas of KA deja vu. Having read old school KA at least 4 times each, it's hard not to notice when something is so similar. My crazy for KA fans will no doubt pick up on it too. There was enough originality for me to enjoy it. Mia was very funny. I liked her very much. She was one character that felt truly genuine. This would have been a If I am wrong in my assessment, I apologize. I look forward to reading Killian and Lexie's story and hope their story takes on a life of its own.

One click but these books! He is so beautifully broken. And I just adored Mia and Lexie. They had me cracking up with their Gilmore-style banter and antics.

I knew Bull story was heartbreaking, it was ugly and painful but dear god there were parts I wanted to strangle him But none the less I loved him and Mia was perfect for him and the way he was with Lexy and Lexy with him was perfect.

It's getting absolutely ridiculous at how Anne Malcom's words continue to slay me. My whole mind is blank right now. There are no words to explain the excruciating pleasure I got from reading Bull's story. My heart hurt so much for him. Bull is officially my favourite ever hero of Anne's. Nobody compares to him. His filthy mouth is dirtier than you can ever imagine. His intensity will absolutely burn you from the inside out. He is a sweet combination of rough and gentle that will have you meltin It's getting absolutely ridiculous at how Anne Malcom's words continue to slay me.
He is a sweet combination of rough and gentle that will have you melting into a puddle at his feet. His hard exterior is hard to love at times, hard to break through, but once done, you will find that it contains the softest heart that wants to love wholeheartedly. Bull and Mia, while they might be the most unlikely couple, they are absolutely perfect each other.
