Michel’s Review

I have not read any of J. C. Cliff’s previous books.  I have heard wonderful things about this author’s writing.  I can honestly say everything I heard proved to be true.

Quinn is the first book in the Undaunted Men series.  This book is super sexy, fast paced, loaded with action, and has a gritty backstory.  The added bonus is a furry friend becomes a very prominent character in this story.

Quinn owes a mob boss, Tony Moretti, a favor and when the boss decides to collect, it’s going to change the coarse of Quinn’s life.  Quinn is a former military special ops operator.  After retirement from the military, he and his buddies formed a specialized private security agency.  One of their specialities is retrieval.  When Moretti’s daughter runs away, he calls in his favor and hires Quinn to bring her home.

The story is that she is wanted for murder and very pregnant.  Quinn feels like he isn’t getting the complete story but wants his ties to the mob severed.  She has disappeared into the national forest in North Carolina.  It should be pretty easy to track her and bring her home.  She’s in his backyard, the playground he grew up in.  Like the old saying goes nothing is ever easy.

Alexis Moretti ran after her fiancé framed her for murder.  With the help of her best friend Connor, she disappears into the forest.  The idea is to hide out on the trails for a few weeks and resurface at the safe house.  Her former finance has an agenda and he won’t rest until Alexis heels to his commands.

Finding Alexis is easy.  Keeping her safe and alive is another story.  Quinn and Alexis will find something extraordinary on the trails.  They will find that once in a lifetime love.  Their happiness depends on staying alive.  At every turn they are faced with danger, murderers, and the elements.  There is definitely more to what’s behind the Moretti family dynamics.  A mafia princess and a seasoned warrior are about to step into a war.

I loved this book and ended on a nail biting cliffhanger.  Readers will be hanging on the edge of their seats to find out what happens to Quinn and Alexis.  They will also be dying to find out the secrets that caused Alexis to flee.

I can’t wait for the next book.  Quinn II will release on April 19, 2016.  Quinn and Alexis fate is hanging by a thread.

The Blyss Trilogy

Buy : Amazon / B & N 



Everyone will have their own definition of “Dark” vs. “Contemporary”, and perhaps there is a mixture of the two. I like to call this the “Grey” genre.

However, there is one thing for certain; you haven’t ever read this type of story before. Blyss is an original, one of a kind storyline in theme, circumstance, and character action.

You will definitely need all three books in order to put together the pieces of this puzzle, but isn’t that what makes reading fun? Embrace the thrill, the suspense, and the anticipation. Each book is full of twists, turns, and “I didn’t see that one coming” moments. There is a romance story amongst all the turmoil…you will just have to hang on for the ride.

**Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for mature audiences only (18+) and contains explicit descriptions of sex, drugs, dirty talk, strong language, kidnapping, and violence.


Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug used against women with one single purpose in mind….

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick’s ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.

When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

** Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for mature audiences only (18+) and contains explicit descriptions of sex, drugs, dirty talk, strong language, kidnapping, and violence.

She likes to spend her time with her family and friends. Her pastimes include: offshore fishing, learning anything new, sewing, spending time at the beach, or the mountains.
