Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ Coletrane (Bad Boys of Retribution MC #4) by Rie Warren


Series finale from the summer MC hit!
From the world of Carolina Bad Boys and Retribution MC, this bad boy biker likes to be in control, and he’s ready to take what he wants.


Coletrane:
Her name is Sinclair Chatham. Sin. That’s exactly what she is—walking, talking, in the flesh sin. She’s haughty, privileged, so goddamn starlet sexy, with an ass I want to grab and spank raw.  
I want her to give herself over to me. I want her to lose that polished princess veneer. I want to strip away the money, the manicures, the maids, the immaculate façade. 
I need her to be mine. But I’m a grunt. A biker. A tattoo artist. I’m blue collar all the way, and her family will probably shit bricks if they ever meet me. 
Not to mention, I’m running from a bad past that’s about to catch up with me. 
Sinclair:
I would never go for Cole in a million years. He’s gruff, rough around the edges—and covered in ink. He’s unapologetic, demanding, and sometimes scary as hell. He tells me what he wants, how he wants it, and why he’s going to ruin me for all other men. 
Coletrane destroys my vanity, gets inside my head while he gets into my bed, and I can’t say no to him. He’s not what I expected—tender at times, taking no prisoners at others. He breaks me down, builds me up. 
He is not my type.
They say opposites attract, and they’re right. I just didn’t expect him to turn my cushy life upside down and inside out. But it’s too late, and someone’s going to get hurt. 
Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.

All four Retribution MC books available now—series complete!

5 – Different Worlds, Same Desires – Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Remember what I said about control?”
“Yes”
“Thought you didn't want to give it up?”
I'm too used to being in charge of every aspect of my life, including my job. Maybe it's time to let some of that go.”
“To me.”
“Yes, Cole.”

When Cole first laid eyes on Sin, he knew she would wreak havoc on his life. Way out of his league and from total opposites sides of the track, he never would have guessed the girl who bled money would be just what the control freak, bad boy biker needed.

I shouldn't be surprised that this series went out with as big of a bang as it started – hell, with having read more than a half dozen books by this author, she still manages to floor me – there is no one out there quite like her. After nailing the male POV so damn perfectly, book after book, I'm beginning to question weather she's really a chick at all. Each story in this series, while all based around an MC, had their own unique qualities. Be it a cop planted in an MC, ex military fighting PTSD, a male stripper (still my fav), or in this case – a dude hindered by his dirty, painful past. All filled with dirty talkin', alpha badass bikers, all loaded with laughs and TONS of raunchy sex, and all with a hint of danger and scary, violent plot twists. With this one, we get our sex even kinkier (think-cuffs, ropes, plugs, clamps-lots of panty melting fun) and all from a guy with a heart of gold who loves with all that he has – even if he doesn't think he deserves it. Sin may be from the rich side of town but she's no pampered princess and she turns out to be just what he needs – in every way possible. I really hate to say goodbye to this series – I have fallen hard core in love with each and every one of these guys and their ladies – but I know I haven't seen the last of them. Rie has a way of crossing characters over flawlessly from series to series, they're all so intertwined, so it's never really goodbye and I absolutely love that about her. All I can say is, if you haven't read any of her books yet – START NOW!! Pick a series and GO – you'll love every damn minute of it.

Sin made me feel more excited, more alive in ways I'd never known I was missing.
She changed my entire life, but not who I'd always been inside. I was a member of Retribution MC. I still did the tat gig on the side at Inksanity. I was one last step away from becoming true blue.
I was a better man because of Sin. For Sin.

4 – Facing Your Demons – Stars

Look, I know I'm probably the last person you guys want to see here and I'm sorry if my being here offends you but I've got things I need to say, things I need to tell you. I don't expect you to understand but I need to tell you anyway.”

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I started this book, but I was pleasantly surprised none-the-less. I don't really know how to categorize this – it wasn't a romance, or a coming of age, or even a drama really – this was one man's journey to face his past and the people who hurt him, finding closure and moving past it after many, many years. It was heartbreaking yet full of hope, shocking yet inspiring. While he confronts his demons, we get glimpses of what made him the man he is today. Through flashbacks we watch a man deny his sexual urges in a time when being gay wasn't as widely accepted as it is today, we watch him figure out who he really is and learn acceptance, we struggle through his heartbreaks with him and witness his fall into darkness and despair then fight his way back to the light. And it's all done in a relatively short book. So while this was pretty far from what I thought it would be, I loved it all the same.

I got through those horrible years without you and I came through them and met the mot wonderful human being. I'm one of the lucky ones.”


He remembered waking up in the hospital, the sweet-smelling disinfectant clogging his nose and Jennifer holding his hand, her blue eyes translucent with tears.
"Don't go killing yourself Ryan, please," she had implored, "it's bad enough I can't have you as my partner in this world but I need you as my friend. My life wouldn't be worth living without you in it. Whatever you need to face, I'll be there to face it with you."
That had been his breaking point and sharp, glass-like tears had sprung from his eyes as gut-wrenching sobs escaped from his mouth. He had wished with every fraction of his soul he could have gotten up from that hospital bed and walked out the door a heterosexual man and go on to live the life he had envisioned with Jennifer. He had wished he could mend her broken heart and be the man she deserved. He had wished he could just put himself back together in a way that made sense to him. He had wished he could like the new Ryan, just a little bit.


When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?
I was always a storyteller and as I grew up I realised I could marry my ability with the English language to all the stories roaming around my head and get them down on paper. At about ten years of age I was producing little homemade "books" and at fourteen I even "launched" a local magazine! I didn't think of writing as a viable career until my mid-twenties when I became a journalist but that didn't provide enough of an outlet for my imagination, so I eventually decided to focus on writing books.
What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?
My earliest memory is of reading Robin Hood. I remember the description of him being dressed in "lincoln green" and wondering what sort of green that was! I was most troubled by this. I'd say I was about seven at the time. The book was a present from Santa Claus and it was my first book with no pictures. I can't tell you how disgusted I was at Santa for bringing me a book with no pictures!
What genre of books do you enjoy reading?
Traditionally I love crime fiction and I always thought that would be what I would write so no-one is more surprised than me that the first three stories I have written have nothing to do with crime fiction! In recent years I have been reading a lot of romance and romantic suspense - which I really enjoy. I also love the classics - anything by Jane Austen, The Bronte sisters, Thomas Hardy etc. I adore beautifully written books so will often have a look at the writers listed for big international literary prizes and check out the books. This is how I came to read Atonement by Ian McEwan, one of my favourite books. I also love reading collections of poetry - Yeats, Kavanagh, Seamus Heaney.
What is your favourite book?
Book? Do I have to pick just one? Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The Hunger Games trilogy and The Twilight series. Some recent favourites are Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan and Consolation & Conviction by Corinne Michaels.
You know I think we all have a favourite author. Who is your favourite author and why?
I love Ian McEwan for the richness of his prose and imagery. Kaylea Cross for her tight plots, thorough research and great sex scenes. Suzanne Collins for her brutal and unflinching subject matter. Thomas Hardy for his beautiful imagery, George R.R. Martin for his incredible world-building and Stieg Larsson for Lisbeth Salander. Mia Sheridan, Corinne Michaels, Kristen Ashley and Jasinda Wilder for their wonderful characters, great storylines and depth of character.
If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?
I'd go back to London 1938 and tell, the then British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain just how Adolf Hitler and Nazism were going to pan out and that he needs to abandon appeasement and take action.
When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?
Finding the time to write and being able to get into the right headspace is difficult - never the writing itself.
Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?
Oh Yes! I'm a dog nut! I adore my dogs! At the moment I just have Miss Billie - a lab collie cross and a huge character - loved by all who meet her. I still miss my old girl Zara, an amazing German Shepherd who was in my life for over ten years. Dogs will feature heavily in my next two stories.
What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?
Oh this is easy! Fresh Atlantic lobster plucked from the pristine waters of the west of Ireland, served with lemon or garlic butter. New potatoes freshly dug from my dad's garden and his sweet carrots and my mother's scones and apple pies are unbeatable.
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Not to be all "famous sport's brand" about this but just do it! I'd also say don't waste your precious time with traditional / legacy publishers. Indie publishing is the way to go - if you are a success then the legacy publishers will come looking for you and that's the way to have them.


Róisín Black comes from the West of Ireland, a place where storytelling is a way of life. She's a dreamer, a wanderer and a writer. In amongst extensive wandering and dreaming she has managed to carve out a successful career as a journalist, hold-down a marriage, produce two amazing children and spend her time with some pretty cool dogs. She currently lives in Queensland, Australia but probably not for long.....
