Poet Butler, the first female President of the outlaw motorcycle club, Hells Redemption, has one basic rule in life: Don’t date bikers, ever.
After she’s randomly jumped during a clubhouse party, she takes off to her house in the hills to avoid her men seeing the bruises she’s sporting. The one flaw in her plan is the man who found her and demands to come with her.
Titan Warren, the President of Bishops Reign, is an arrogant prick Poet can’t stand. He’s entitled, pushy, and attractive as hell, which only pushes her to dislike him more.
Can Poet’s strength withstand bloodshed and conspiracy as the world she once knew falls apart? Or will she crumble under the pressure, and lose everything she’s ever known?
If you’re in the mood for a biker-lite read with a difference, Poet should fit the bill. At times it kind of stretches what is believable, but it was still an enjoyable evening read.
Poet is the first female president of Hells Redemption 1% MC. Being raised by a bunch of bikers while also being beautiful means she can kick your ass, shoot you down and be pretty while she’s doing it. Poet is great at strategizing and when her father, the current MC President is killed, the vote is unanimous that she should take the gavel. Her club respects her, but not all other MC clubs do.
I liked Poet, except one thing gave me pause…she doesn’t date bikers. Since Poet is a biker and had convinced the club to treat their women with respect, that didn’t make a lot of sense to me. I understand her hesitations considering most bikers don’t respect women but to me it sounded like she wanted to lead them but didn’t respect them enough to want to be with one. Then you find out her feelings are based around an affair she had with a 25 year old biker when she was 16. I get he was scum but to hold it against all bikers in general, especially when she was raised lovingly by bikers who made her into the strong kickass woman she is, seems kind of…..angsty and immature.
Titan is the very hot President of the somewhat rival club, Bishops Reign. He has a thing for Poet even though she wants not one thing to do with him. I liked Titan. He hit all those keywords that melt my butter – strong, gorgeous, and alpha. There is definitely some tension between the clubs, but they do party together so I was a little confused about why there was a rivalry. Titan’s son, Dirk, did need his ass kicked for his attitude but he seemed to be the only one with an issue.
There is some biker grit, a dirty cop, sexual tension that was through the roof and lots of steamy action between Titan and Poet once they finally decided to relieve some of that tension. Some situations made my “yeah right” meter hit the red zone and the ending was kind of rushed but overall I enjoyed the book, enjoyed the characters and I look forward to the next one.
