If you love the motorcycle romances of Joanna Wylde and Julie Ann Walker, don’t miss Violetta Rand’s irresistible novel about a sexy-as-sin biker who tempts a good girl to go bad.
Lang Anderson may be the new leader of the Sons of Odin motorcycle club, but his personal life is in shreds. He’s struggling to take care of his three young sisters in the wake of tragedy, while rumors of drug dealing within his ranks jeopardize everything he’s built. The last thing he needs is another distraction—like a bar brawl over a woman—but Lang is a sucker for a damsel in distress. And this one gets him roaring like a finely tuned engine.
High school guidance counselor Lily Gallo is no fender bunny. So why can’t she get Lang off her mind? Lily’s head says the rugged, rough-and-tumble biker who came to her aid is bad news. Her body begs to differ. But when Lang’s troubled kid sister walks into her office, Lily’s determined to help, even if it puts her in the crossfire of a gang war. On a crash course with danger and desire, Lily partners up with Lang to fight for his family—and for love.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
“What she said” can’t be construed as a review right?
Well, as my dear friend Spice, I was taken in by the promising blurb as well: hot biker president in charge of his three sisters, meets high school counselor, there’s some MC trouble and they ride happily ever after on a Harley.
Weeeeeeel, they do ride happily ever after on a Harley, kind of, but the road to get there was l-a-m-e. I have no notion of real MC or biker life, all I know is from the books I’ve read, but Lang here seemed to go against everything we pretty much expect for in a badass biker.
And don’t get me started on Lily, the immature little girl throwing a tantrum because her parents split. Her constant back and forth thought process gave me whiplash, her personality made me want to throw my kindle.
The whole book felt like a series of situations drawn from a hat and thrown in in succession but there wasn’t much cohesion between scenes. Of course, all this is just my opinion, I wouldn’t be able to write a book even if I was paid to, but I just felt this one had some potential with a bit of help.
An underwhelming story if I ever read one,
