Harmony makes no excuses for who she is or what she’s done. For the past few years she’s been living as a club girl for the Brothers by Blood MC. The club girls are there for a purpose - to cook, to clean and to keep the men happy. She respects the club, respects the men and she follows the rules. Watching the men walk in and out of her life is strangely comforting, and a feeling she’s grown accustomed to. With a history of disappointments and false promises, all she wants is to have fun, play music and finish college. Being associated with the club, she can do that without having to risk her heart. That was until he showed up.

When Kit's father stepped down as president, he took the title with pride. The Brothers by Blood MC is his family, his home. Deciding to celebrate his new title with his brothers from a neighboring chapter, the last thing he expected was to find Harmony - a club girl with all the makings of a perfect old lady. The stunning blonde is beautiful, strong and fiercely independent. Harmony refuses to lower the walls she’s created around her heart, but the fire inside her and her love for the club fuel his need to have her by his side, and on the back of his bike.

When Harmony’s safety is threatened, Kit is determined to do whatever it takes to protect her and prove that she can trust him. But after a lifetime of broken promises, will it be enough?

By SpiceAwhile back I had heard murmurs about an upcoming MC series featuring club girls.  Truthfully I really wasn’t all that excited about the thought of a series surrounding women who freely let themselves be passed around from biker to biker.   I mean lets face it, a lot of the books have at least one, two, or more “club whores” who dress like total skanks and are mean as snakes to boot willing to do anything to become an Old Lady.  My thoughts were pretty much along the line of “who wants to read a book about a skank? Not me.”  I should have known better.  We forgive our favorite alpha manwhores for this type behavior, why are we putting our own double standards on strong h’s who act the same?  Actually, several popular biker series have club girls who are strong women that are comfortable in their own skin and who like not being tied down to one man.  This is the kind of heroine I can get behind.  After the release date, reviews started coming in and they were pretty good.  I decided to get off my high horse and check Harmony out.  I am definitely eating some humble pie, because Harmony was a dang good little biker read from a point of view that we rarely get.

A club girl was someone who hung around an MC – a motorcycle club and was there for the mere purpose of being a hole to fuck. 

Harmony is a “Club Girl” for the Brothers By Blood MC.  She knew exactly what people thought of her, and she didn’t care.  She had her reasons for doing what she did and she refused to feel bad about it.  I was prepared to dislike her, but I ended up loving her character.  Yes, she had sex with any brother that wanted it, but she was truly fond of almost all of them and she loved the club.  She was strong, loyal, knew her place in life and was happy with it, and she wasn’t TSTL.  She also had no intention of becoming an Old Lady and wasn’t scraping, scrapping, and competing for that.

I loved the men of my MC.  They were hard, violent, and scary.  But underneath it all, they had firm beliefs about respect.  

The BBB MC are 1%’ers but this is more a MC lite book than a truly gritty one.  There is violence but since the book is about a club girl, the criminal activities of the club are barely mentioned.  Most of the action surrounds the unfortunate interest a scout for a slave trafficking ring has in her.  I liked all but one of the brothers.  They were rough around the edges, but an extremely interesting group that I look forward to reading more about.

I didn’t need a woman that was going to fall at my feet and worship the ground I walked on.  I wanted a woman who was strong enough to stand beside me as an equal.

Kit is the new President of another chapter and good friends with Optimus, the President of Harmony’s chapter, so he was visiting to celebrate.  He takes one look at Harmony and is floored.  An extremely short period of time later, he decides she is exactly what he is looking for in an Old Lady.  Kit was alpha to the nth degree but he didn’t want a doormat of a woman and I loved that about him.  He was also hot and the chemistry between them was scorching.

“Thought I could do soft and shit, babe.  But now I’m seeing you, I just want to ram my cock into you so hard you’ll feel it next Tuesday.”

I smirked and moved back onto the bed, scooting backward and keeping my legs a little open to just give him a peek of what it was I knew he wanted.  I didn’t want soft.  Not with Kit.  I wanted him to fuck me like he meant it.  I wanted him to show me why he owned me and make me submit to him.  I wanted to be with a man.  I didn’t need feelings and light caresses.  “Soft is overrated”.

There was a lot to love about Kit and Harmony’s story.  The insta-love thing was a bit of a turnoff,  there were a few eye rolling moments, plus a couple things that I could see coming from a mile off, but nothing that took away from my enjoyment of the book.  There was also a huge surprise towards the end setting up the next book.  It’s not a cliffhanger by any means, Harmony and Kit’s story is complete but the Brothers by Blood story is continuing on.  This is the type of series I really like.

I love books that surprise me and surpass my expectations and this book definitely fits in that category.  I even liked it enough that even though I got it through the Kindle Unlimited program, I went ahead and just bought the book.  Needless to say, I can’t wait to get the next Club Girl’s book.

Rating:  4 happily surprised stars
