of mystery, suspense, steam, and angst, this book takes you on a ride that will have you hanging on until the very end Once I started this book, I did not put it down until the very end which still left me wantingIf you are a fan of romantic suspense, this book is for you.This is Declan and Evie s story Declan is a thug He is an enforcer and can kill with the blink of an eye He isn t a playboy and only satisfies his need when he needs too He has been scarred from his past and has no plans or room for anyone That is until Evie walks into his life Evie is a broken girl who just lost her mom She never has really been shown love and just wants to find her place in this world Broken from her past, she doesn t have anyone or let anyone in When she gets a job at a pub and meets the mysterious Declan, she wants to knowBut when tragedy strikes, Declan and Evie will be thrown together Declan has to make a choice Evie or his life.I loved Declan from the beginning He was very closed off from the world From the beginning, we could understand why he was so guarded with no relationships But even the big, bad, and strong Declan couldn t deny the connection to Evie from the beginning His need to protect and shelter her was swoonworthy I liked how he started to soften to Evie until the end It was also nice for him to not be a manwhore like so many of our book boyfriends.I admired Evie throughout this book Sure she has a lot of bad stuff happen to her and she was in a tight spot but she made it work She was strong, resilient, and really just needed someone to lean on that man was Declan From the beginning, she had a connection to him that she could not explain I liked how she pushed his boundaries and made him feelfor her For the weak spots, she had just as many strong spots I really had only one complaint and that was I wantedat the end We built up the suspense and the end just kind of felt too nicely wrapped up way to quick I would loveof them in the future as maybe a follow up I look forward to future books from this author.I recommend this book Blog Tour 5 STARS I need to start by saying that I feel so privileged and honored to have read yet another amazing book

the world but was still so vulnerable and fragile She was the light in the dark She blew me awayWe can t become what we re fighting against, because then what s the pointDeclan certainly was the epitome of a good guy gone wrong, or left with few options He became what he had to to survive, but it wasn t him And Evie was the one to come along and give him hope Seeing him through her eyes, watching him change and want to be better for her was inspiringI ll show her I care in other ways, ways she might never understand or even know aboutThis was a very thought provoking and potent book for me The way Sara Hubbard presents it is just so powerful and enjoyable I frantically wanted to read every second I had free I was taken on a powerful journey I will soon not forget I can t wait for her future books Check out Beautiful and Broken, I absolutely loved that book When I first tried out Incapable, by Sara Hubbard, I quickly set it aside after coming across one of my biggest pet peeves

romances go Eyes can never be eyes They are never plain blue, they have to be the color of the ocean before a storm, or the color of sapphires held against a shimmery sunset They can not be plain

chocolate with hazelnut chunks dipped in honey One novel I attempted described the eyes of the h as slate grey with red streaks turns out she had an eye condition called corneal bleeding To sum it up, OTT descriptions of eyes in novels just frustrate the hell out of me.So you can understand my dismay when in the first chapter of Incapable, H notices h s mismatched eyes, one blue, one green All I could muster was one giant eye roll.Moving on, the story actually turned out to be mostly interesting, with some parts being hot as hell I would qualify this as an NA romantic suspense hybrid, thankfully devoid of all those gross cliches like the TSTL h, the psycho ex, the cocky manho H, or the Great and Terrible Misunderstanding Nothing earth shattering, but good solid writing that kept up my interest Unfortunately, the last 5% of the book fizzled out into a rushed, OTT mess with plot holes bigger than the moon craters Would probably recommend this for a younger, less cynical audience than grumpy old me A review copy was provided by the author for the Blog Tour5 Stars WOW This book was great Pure Gold, in my opinion.This was the first book by Sara Hubbard that I have read and I

honest LOL and I am so glad that I took a chance on this book and author because I was not disappointed This book kept my attention from the very first page all the way to the very last page I didn t want to see this story end.I don t think there was just one thing about this book that spoke to me, it was everything about this book The writing was fantastic The characters were engaging and believable The storyline was great and I just loved how the author told this story One of the best things about this story to me was that she didn t give us the same old characters and story we see these days I loved that while Declan was attracted to Evie and continued to push her out of his mind, that the author doesn t turn him into a playboy who sleeps with every girl he sees It was refreshing that both Evie and Declan are only with each other during this story.Evie and Declan were interesting characters They are both very broken souls, both having come from poor upbringings, but the way they have chosen to live their lives is complete opposite of each other Evie learned a secret when she was young that totally changed her life and who she believed she was This destroyed her and she wanted to give up on her life, but then her mom got sick and she spends four years taking care of her Once her mom passes, she decided to move to the city and start all over Down on her luck she stumbles into a pub and that changes everything for her This is where she meets Declan and to say they don t hit it off right away is an understatement The owner of the pub Mona gives her a job and things start working out for her That is until one fateful night that changes everything on her way home from a club Declan finds her and saves her life From then on things change for both Declan and Evie I loved how these two characters interacted with each other Declan is used to getting what he wants without question but Evie questions everything and she has NO problem standing up to Declan when need be The chemistry these two had was off the charts It takes a little while for things to heat up but once they do, watch out inCAPABLE is a stand alone mafia based novel, with action, humor and romance This is a book that once you pick it up, you ll have a hard time putting it down You ll fall in love with Evie and Declan and root through the whole book for them to get their HEA.I would recommend this book to everyone Follow Us at Book Bitches Blog Facebook Twitter 3 2.5 Stars I really loved this book until around 70 75% Then the eye rolling came and Declan and Evie grated my nerve I guess I like my bad boys to stay bad boys lol I had to skim to the end Will I read the next book No thanks I already wanted to smack Beth upside the head in this book can t imagine reading a whole book about her lol I really loved this book such an amazing read If you like mob stories you will love this one Declan is a cold hearted killer, but I fell for his character anyway He could be so sweet and caring I couldn t put it down I can t wait to readfrom this author.

LOVED Declan and Evie Such great characters whose sexual tension was TOTALLY off the charts So why not 5 stars The ending felt a bit rushed to methe whole book is leading up to this epic revenge scene and yet, that s not what the reader gets If the ending wasn t what it was, this easily would have been a five star book for me After spending four years caring for her mother, twenty two year old Evie Crane is starting over with a new job in a new city Unfortunately, her new life involves working for a woman with close ties to the mob When a short walk home turns into tragedy and Evie is left broken and beaten, a mob hitman comes to her rescue In his debt, she feels a bond to him and wants to help him as much as he helped her, but getting close to a criminal brings her chaos than she bargains for Declan Lewis grew up on the streets until taken under the wing of a man with a soft spot for a child he never had The man taught Declan all he knew, only all he knew was being a hired killer for the Dantes family When Declan crosses paths with a girl so unlike himself, he can t help but be attracted to his polar opposite However, bringing her into his life means bringing her into his world, a mistake that might prove fatal He wants to be the man she deserves, but to give her what she needs, he ll have to change And is change really possible for a killer
