Release Blitz & Review...Lick by Torrie Robles

 Title: Lick
Series: Devil's Fury MC #2
Author: Torrie Robles
Release Date: May 30th, 2017

Mothers are supposed to love you. Support you. Protect you.
Not mine, mine did none of those things. – Not one.
My mother taught me that her addiction was stronger than her love for me. Her high was all that mattered.  That’s all she needed, all she wanted. Grown men and women took payment from me, so she could get her fix. They took everything from me, just a child, her only son.
Motherly love? Fuck that.
I’ve spent my life taking from bitches all too willing to give it up - whores, sluts, The Fallen - you name it, I've had a piece of it, of them. It's how I earned the name Lick. I've licked every part of a bitch's body.  Until her -Jenni.
From the moment she sashayed her hips up the dirt path of our clubhouse I knew I was fucked. Curves for days, sweet tits that begged to be sucked. A heart of gold. I know it’s a fucking cliché, but she was different.
She challenged me – Pushed me
Jenni made me see I’ve spent my life being blind, that I was worth something.
She taught me love doesn’t use.
It’s not twisted, it doesn’t hurt and it doesn’t cost a thing.
I’ll do anything to make her happy.  I’ll do whatever the fuck it takes to keep her by my side. She’s far too precious for me, but I’ll be damned if I’ll let her go.

Torrie Robles was born and raised in the Central Valley of California; a perfect spot in the state since she’s only hours away from the coast, the beautiful mountains and the big named cities. She currently lives a short distance from her hometown of Clovis, in a small community known as The Madera Ranchos. She’s married and has three children, two boys and one girl. She also has seven animals that live with her family on their property. She’s a city girl living in the country, but not too far from the hustle and bustle of the life, she grew up knowing.

Torrie obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration, but her passion has always been writing.  A dream she felt was always out of her reach, until she was introduced to the Indie Community.  2015 marked the year she became a self-published author. She writes contemporary romance and plans to branch out as her career takes off. She is currently working on several different manuscripts. She hopes to have them all finished and published throughout her career while continuing to develop new stories and characters to fall in love with.

When she isn't working a full-time job, writing, raising her children or just taking care of life, Torrie's biggest hobby is getting lost in books. Her passion for reading and the authors she looks up to has allowed her to make her dreams come true. Her fellow authors have truly been her inspiration.

★★★★ Four Stars

Licks childhood has shaped him into the man he is today. He has no respect for women and he's a bit of a pig at times but I still loved him. He's had such a heartbreaking upbringing, full of pain and sadness yet he seems stronger than most people. He hasn't let it ruin his life, he's maybe not the happiest man ever but he's doing ok. Jenni seems to bring out a different side to him though. He's not quite as crass around her. They're polar opposites, Jenni's upbringing couldn't have been more different to Licks, she has a naivety about her and she manages to get him to open up and brings out his more caring side.

I loved the build up between Jenni and Lick. The banter between them, the constant circling around one another made me desperate for these two to get it on! Jenni is determined to get Lick to see himself as she does and he finally shows the man he really truly is deep down and let me tell you, he's downright perfect! Perfect!! He did annoy me though. One thing he does (although for the greater good of others) rubbed me up the wrong way and made me want to slap him but knowing his history I soon understood where he was coming from and got over it ;)

There's plenty of twists in this book, it will keep you on your toes. You'll fall in love with the characters and you'll be desperate for a hea. There was one part of this book I hated. Not going to lie I was tempted to make a voodoo doll of a certain author and start sticking pins in it. Overall though I really enjoyed Licks story. The characters are easy to connect to, they're brought to life as you get to know them and there's two special characters that are absolutely adorable and bring so much to the story. Now I need Hawks story. I've been patient. I've waited since I read Sin but my patience is running out now. I need to know what's going on with him so I'm going to be counting the days til I get his story.
