Family means everything to this tattooed bad boy—good thing since he’s about to start his own.
I wanted her the first time I laid eyes on her. But what starts as a fun time, quickly gets serious when the stick turns pink a month later. My life is already chaos with my recently paroled father popping up and the usual drama at the family business building custom motorcycles. Plus our reality show just got picked up for a full season.
But it really hits the fan when I discover that the new woman in my life is the daughter of the President of the West Coast Kings, the baddest motorcycle club in Sacramento—and our biggest client. Think he’ll like being called Grandpa?
Life just got hella complicated.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I don’t request many ARCs anymore and it’s even rarer for me to put my hand up for one from a new to me author. But, I’ve heard so much good stuff about Gillian Archer that it caught my attention. Plus, it had a biker and an unexpected baby so I just couldn’t pass it up. Thank goodness my gamble paid off as I ended up enjoying reading it.
There were a couple elements of the book that could have spelled disaster for me. I tend to avoid new adult books and this couple was firmly in that category. I ended up getting caught up in their reactions both to each other and the fact that they got pregnant. As young as they were, nothing was glossed over when it came to their situation and I loved it. How they stumbled and stammered their way through their predicament brought out all the feels for me.
To say their families were dysfunctional is an understatement, especially Ryan’s. Half the time you didn’t know if he was going to hug it out or slug it out with his brothers. His determination to do the right thing had my heart going all pitter patter and oohing and awing over just how freaking adorable he was. And Hope was perfect for him.
As for Hope, she was naïve and completely out of her element when it came to her father. I think an opportunity was missed by not giving us some of the beginning where she found her dad so we could understand how she ended up in the situation she found herself in. As much as I liked her, and I really did, I just had a hard time figuring out how a girl who seemed to have such a good head on her shoulders got roped into that whole mess.
Despite that, I was thoroughly enjoying the story, the characters and the plot but when we hit the big finale we’d slowly been lead up to, things fell a bit flat for me. View Spoiler » I had a hard time with the completely irresponsible actions of Hope after a certain event along with the actions (or should I say non-action) of Ryan’s family. Truly, I was flabbergasted. « Hide Spoiler
That one last section knocked my rating from a five star read to a four star one. That being said, I liked almost everything about this book, including the side characters and I can’t wait to read more about Ryan and his brothers. .
