I honestly couldn’t stop imagining Jonny James, the male model on the cover, the entire time I was reading this book. Jake is already a pretty potent dominant badass biker, but with Jonny’s face and body it really turns the sexy times up to eleven. There is a lot of sex in this book, however, it is not out of context with the characters or story. It adds to the romantic passion Liz and Jake share, keeping this story in the romance genre instead of leaning towards erotica. I’m not sure where the author plans to go, if this is a standalone or the start of a series, but I kind of wished there was more conflict in the secondary characters. Nix and Jenna came together too easily, and maybe if the author writes their story we might see more depth. However, from Liz’s perspective the tale was far to simplistic for my taste. There was some mild aspects of the MC life in these books, but unlike most MC books this is a riding club. Not an outlaw club, not a one percenter club. These guys do charity runs, party hard, and maybe shirt the edges of the law. Murder and violence isn’t part of their everyday life, but they aren’t afraid to get their hand dirty when you threaten one of their own.
Overall I enjoyed the book, the sexy times were hot and dirty, and the passion between the lead characters was intense. I’ve read dozens of MC books, and this club is different than most I read (not necessarily in a bad way). While it was a fun, passionate, and dirty read I enjoyed, it wasn’t a deep emotional tale. Perfect to take your mind off things when the day has driven you to drink. So pour a glass of wine or crack a beer and settle in for a wild ride.
