ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date May 25, 2017
She’s a wildcat in bed and she’s driving me insane!
Ever since that first night I can’t get enough of Rahyne Andrews.
Her kisses, her body, her moans, drive me crazy. I can’t seem to say no to her.
My only problem is, that she doesn’t seem to be interested in more than my body.
And I’m not about to have my control taken away from me.
She either bends to my will, or I’m walking.
Grayson Carter is everything I ever dreamed of and more.
He’s built like a rock and knows how to satisfy my every need.
But the last thing I want is to have another failed relationship.
Especially, when it involves a member of the Hell’s Lovers.
I’m the one in control, I’m always in control…
So why is it that Grayson Carter is the only man who has ever made me beg for more.
REVIEW: GRAYSON is the second novella in Crimson Syn’s contemporary, adult HELL’S LOVERS erotic, romance series focusing on the Hell’s Lovers motorcycle club. This is Club Vice-President Grayson Carter, and bartender Rahyne Andrews. GRAYSON can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Grayson and Rahyne) GRAYSON follows the building relationship between Hell’s Lovers Vice President Grayson Carter, and newly hired Ravenous bartender Rahyne Andrews. Rahyne was first introduced in book one-WOLF-and is best friends with the Club’s President’s wife Scarlett Chase. Grayson Carter has found the woman that calls to his heart-Rahyne Andrews-but Rahyne is determined to remain friends with benefits. Our heroine refuses to commit to one man but her actions, behavior and attitude scream possession and rage. When the Los Perdidos gang make good on their threats against the Hell’s Lovers MC, Rahyne finds herself targeted by the man in charge. What ensues is the build up to war between the Hell’s Lovers MC and the Los Perdidos gang, and the struggling romance between Grayson Carter and the woman he loves.
Once again, the character development is limited. We know very little to nothing about Grayson and Rahyne-their histories and backstories are virtually non-existent. There are moments of graphic violence, questionable consent, attempted rape and physical destruction all of which I expect in an MC story line but I question the heroine’s actions in the early stages of her relationship with our leading hero. Her hot and cold attitude left much to be desired.
All of the previous story line characters play secondary and supporting roles including Road Captain Jason Riggs, and waitress Luna. Riggs and Luna’s story line is next in RIGGS.
GRAYSON is a novella length, erotic romance. The premise is dark and gritty; the characters are passionate; the romance is wicked and carnal. I do have to question a couple of situations that appear to have been left unaddressed in the story.

Scarlett Chase is every man’s wet dream.
As soon as I laid eyes on her, I knew she’d be mine.
That is, until I found out she was untouchable.
One kiss, one forbidden touch, will have me out on the streets and stripped of who I am.
Yet I want her. I need her. And I’m done following all these damn rules.
Wolf Stone is my obsession.
Ever since he pulled over on that empty road, I’ve been tormented by the man.
His possessive words and heated looks have me tightly wound.
One touch, and he lights me on fire.
But I want more.
I not only want him in my bed, I want to keep him for myself.
But he won’t budge, and now it’s up to me to entice his sleeping wolf.
REVIEW: WOLF is the first installment in Crimson Syn’s contemporary, adult HELL’S LOVERS MC erotic, romance series focusing on the members of the Hell’s Lovers motorcycle club. This is thirty three year old Club President Wolf Stone, and twenty three year old attorney Scarlett Chase’s story line.
Told by dual first person perspectives (Wolf and Scarlett) WOLF follows the building but forbidden relationship between Hell’s Lovers MC president Wolf Stone, and attorney Scarlett Chase. When Scarlett’s car breaks down on the side of the road, a sexy, dark and brooding biker stops by to give her some help not knowing their connection to one another is more than a mutual attraction but one born of history and a love for the Hell’s Lovers MC. Wolf Stone will make an offer Scarlett will not refuse but in doing so places both of them in the line of fire from the club members and a rival who is demanding that Wolf and the Hell’s Lovers MC go into business with the Los Perdidos gang.
WOLF introduces the reader to the member to the Hell’s Lovers MC: Vice President Grayson Carter, Sargent at Arms Cain Scardino, Club Enforcer Seth Scardino, Road Captain Jason Riggs, and Scarlett’s mother Regina Chase, as well as a quick introduction of Scarlett’s best friend Rahyne Andrews. Rahyne and Grayson’s story is next in GRAYSON.
WOLF is a novella-length story of erotic romance. The couple’s instant attraction quickly develops into a physical relationship but a relationship that is forbidden by the Club rules. The $ex scenes are erotic with sexually graphic language and text. The epilogue fast forwards the story line approximately one year where we get a glimpse into the couple’s HEA. The premise is enthusiastic; the characters are interesting; the romance is hot, fast and demanding.
I did have a couple of issues including the lack of character development, as well as some problems with grammar and errors. I would have like to know more about Wolf and Scarlett’s individual histories but nothing was revealed or forthcoming-the novella length story may not have been conducive to a complete history, but there is always room for some background information in every story line-necessary information required to make the characters less one dimensional.

It was late when I entered my apartment. I sank down on the couch and stared out into the city. I lived in a high rise in downtown L.A., it offered a good view and it was near the club, I also owned the building. I had a few investments, mostly in stocks, so I did well for myself. I didn’t really have any family or anyone I truly cared about, except for Wolf and most recently, Scarlett. I used to do security for the military, and after retiring, Wolf gave me a place to stay and opened his doors for me. I was glad to have someone like Wolf. He’d been a good friend throughout the years. When he took over as President, he immediately named me VP, and it’s been that way for the last five years. The brotherhood was my refuge and although we didn’t voice it, we were a pretty tight knit family.
I stood up and went to grab a beer. I headed down the hall to my bedroom, where an empty bed awaited me. Usually it didn’t bother me, but lately I’d been yearning for a warm body to press up against. Specifically, a voluptuous blonde, with eyes the color of emeralds. My cock stirred and I sighed as I took a swig of my beer and sat at the edge of the bed.
Images of Rahyne spread out on my mattress kept flooding through my mind and they had been non-stop lately. It didn’t matter where I was or who I was with, I couldn’t get the temptress out of my head. It was starting to worry me.
I never even thought of settling down. I lived my life peacefully, went where I wanted, fucked who I wanted, and didn’t give a shit about anything. But with Rahyne…fuck, I thought my urgency to have her was just an infatuation-something that would go away in a matter of weeks. Six months later, and my body still craved hers, more now than ever before. Running my hands through my hair I fought my desire to go looking for her and I gulped down my beer.
Lying back on the bed I let her image envelop me and I pulled out my shaft-hard as a rock as usual-and stroked myself, remembering the sound of her sweet whispers, and the moans and whimpers I heard on an almost daily basis. I groaned, imagining the wonderful feeling of her tight pussy hugging my swollen member. Remembering the way she shouted my name, and how her body gripped me, made me jerk off harder. Knowing I could manipulate her body to such extremes had me grunting my release as streams of white fluid leapt out and landed on my stomach. I breathed out and splayed my arms on the mattress. Closing my eyes, I imagined her by my side, and the only thought that came to my mind, before I drifted off, was that I was going to make her mine.
My name is Crimson Syn, not really, but what fun is it to use my real name. Instead I’ll use my inner goddess’ name, it’s much more fun that way. I grew up in New York City where I had a wonderful education, loving parents and awesome friends. What more could a girl ask for?
I started writing at the age of sixteen. The first romance I read was Stephanie Laurens’ Devil’s Bride. Since then I have been influenced by dozens of flourishing romance authors and even more dashing and daring rogues. I must say it, but Fifty Shades was not my first erotic romance, nor did it influence me to start writing them. If you’ve never read Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas, Bertrice Small or A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy, then you’re missing out. Those were my sweet introductions to erotic romance, and boy were they hot.
So here I am, after reading so many wonderful stories, I have too many sinful tales of my own not to share. I like my alphas rough and possessive, and I have no shame in saying it or writing it. I had delightfully wicked teachers growing up, their books took me to new worlds and brought me new loves. So, I want to do the same for you. I want to indulge my readers in those steamy reads that will send them into the arms of dangerous alphas and deliciously sexy rogues, without leaving the confines of their nice warm bed. If I am able to entice your inner goddesses, then I have done my job and I am satisfied.
