When I saw Jane from Dear Author tweet that she liked a new motorcycle club book, I immediately went to Amazon. There are a lot of things that stand out in this book. First our heroine. I adored this heroine. Lilli moves to the small, run-down town of Signal Bend and sticks out like a sore thumb. The town immediately takes notice, as does the Night Horde motorcycle club president, Isaac. He wants to know why she is in town, what it has to do with his club and why his hack extraordinaire can’t find any information on her past. Lilli has secrets..and she doesn’t like to share. Lilli is kick-ass – as in – the first night in town she punches someone in the throat. She can totally handle herself, which I loved. She has tons of self-esteem. She can flirt to win over a crowd of strangers, she can handle weapons, and she can 100% stick up for herself. She is a very well developed character. Her and Isaac hit the sheets quick in this one, but it all worked for me. When Isaac gets a little upset she isn’t sharing her secrets, Lilli lets him know who is boss:
“Rough in the sack is one thing, asshole. Do not think you can knock me around.” He put a hand around her wrist to pull her loose, but she increased the pressure on his neck. Finally, he put his hands up in surrender, and she released him.
Isaac has long hair, a beard, and is definitely the alpha president of his club. He is quick to rip off a fingernail of someone who has wronged him, yet he has a gentle, romantic side.
“I mean to fuck you, Sport, secrets or not. Now’s the time to say you don’t want it.”
Okay, mostly romantic.
He isn’t as assholey (is that a word?) as some other MC heroes I’ve read. His club runs meth for local dealers, but honestly that isn’t explored much in this book – I wish we had seen that part of their club more. Actually, I wish we had more scenes in the club. We meet some of the other members, but a lot of page time is spent away from the club house.
Lilli does have a reason for moving to Signal Bend, and information on her past is classified. I won’t say why, but I liked that she has a secret life.
I’d definitely label this book as erotic as the sex scenes are hot, explicit and plentiful. I have to say, I got a little tired of the sex by the end. They are well done but it came to be too many. I also thought some scenes in the second half dragged a bit.
Overall though, this is a pretty solid motorcycle club romance. Hot sex, really great heroine and an alpha, romantic hero.
Dear Author – B+
