I want Daisy Crest, and I always get what I want.
The name Camden Rutgers is golden in Hickory Creek Township, Tennessee. My father is the president of the Serrated Brotherhood MC. My mother is a member of local royalty.
More than my good name, I have the looks, money, and power to entice any woman to slide my Harley between her legs and take a ride. I expect the same response from Daisy when I make my move.
Let's just say things didn't go well.
For months, I assume Daisy will run back to me. Too bad she hates exercise and her ego refuses to let her grovel.
Frustrated with waiting, my heart demands I claim the quirky virgin. Daisy can hem and haw, play cold with my heart, and even try reasoning with me, but nothing will prevent her from becoming my Bourbon Babe.
Bourbon Blues is a standalone romance within the Serrated Brotherhood MC trilogy.

By SpiceI love Bijou Hunter’s brand of down to earth characters, humor, and grit that she weaves into her stories. I had to remind myself of this after the first few pages of Bourbon Blues. There was some truly idiotic immaturity happening that had me rolling my eyes more than once. I’m glad I pressed on since it finally settled in and the author’s trademark banter had me grinning.

Bourbon Blues is a sweet story but centered around a not so sweet guy, Camden Rutgers. The spoiled golden boy of the Hickory Creek township, he almost let a temper tantrum keep him from gaining the woman of his dreams. I decided he was unbelievably self-centered and had some serious growing up to do. What saved him in my mind, was that he also had an insight into what was important in life that no one else in his family seemed to have. I gotta say, this contradiction in his character was fascinating and could be quite funny at times.

Daisy, aka Bourbon (her middle name), was the shy sister in an eccentric family. Full of nerves and lots of weird little foibles, she ended up being stronger than anyone ever thought she could be. Camden’s temper tantrum caused her to lose what little self-confidence she had so she was struggling. He needed to fix what he broke pronto, but she was understandably reluctant to have anything to do with him.

Once Camden got his head out of his posterior and started going after what he wanted, things got interesting. He came up with ways to chase her down that, although immature, had me cracking up. He also could dirty talk in such a way I thought I’d fallen into a Jordan Silver book. It was all kinds of dirty, raunchy, and hot. Just wow.

Their families were crazy, kooky, and not quite right. Some things were just plain sad with lots of fodder for more books in the series. I found myself wanting to drop kick Camden’s dad and brothers but hug Daisy’s sisters. The Mom’s just cracked me up.

I’m not a big fan of new adult books. I tend to only like them if the characters show a level of maturity not seen very often in the genre. Ms. Hunter has a special ability to make me laugh even though my eyes are rolling. She also can write¬†characters that remind me of actual real life people, no matter how crazy the character acts. This alone keeps me coming back for more.

Spice’s Rating: 4 Immature but Hilarious Stars
