This series is seriously making me re-think my stance on MC romances. It just takes a well written story to turn it all around. Sure, there are still gritty biker rules and lifestyle things to overlook. Sigh, these books always come with the loose definition of romance and monogamy.
Sophie is a great character, she has such strength. She starts out as a naive girl, but she grows up quickly through the book. I love the way she sasses Ruger. She fits in extremely well with the other ladies.
Ruger is a super Alpha type! He can be a real jerk most of the time, but it is kinda hot too. The mixed narrative helps make him likeable. You really need those times from his POV to keep him from being a total neanderthal with no feelings.
There is a lot going on with this story. Club business, relationships, Sophie's Ex, and getting ready for Horse and Marie's wedding. While there is all that going on we also get to met a few new characters, I freakin love her BFF Kimber. She is brilliant! Their dynamic reminds my of my friends and had me giggling!
The smexy scenes are smokin hot. They are plentiful and varied. Oh good lord is that man sexy!! Whoa mama, piercings and tattoos!!! He is also a bit of a dirty talker!! Makes you week in the knees! Hello cold shower.
I listened to the audiobook that switched between two narrators Tatiana Sokolov and Todd Haberkorn. The two trade off when the POV switches between the leads. I really enjoyed Tatiana's pace and tone. Her voices were great and she had fantastic energy in the read. I generally liked Todd's read, but like many male narrators he tried to go too high with the ladies at times. They book delivered a great performance that sold the action and emotions of the story. I do like this style of using two narrators on a romance, it helps keep it distinct when the narrative switches.
I have never been a fan of the biker reads, but Ms Wylde is making me a fan, at least of hers. These are not sweet fluffy romances, they are dirty and raw and of so yummy. I adore the way she takes the time to really show who the club members are and why these women would love them. As bad as they maybe, they have a code and huge hearts.
