    Read my review at Sinfully Sexy.3.5 StarsSweet Perdition by Cynthia Rayne is book one in her Four Horsemen MC series. The quintessential good girl librarian meets a tattooed biker who is out to corrupt her. Set in the town of Hell, Texas, this biker book was a pretty decent start to a promising series.Elizabeth Williams has just had the day from hell. Having to watch her best friend and her ex-boyfriend get married was bad enough. Wearing an awful and revealing pink fluffy bridesmaid gown was the cherry on top of her craptastic day. Elizabeth finds herself having a few drinks at Perdition, a local biker bar she has stayed away from in the past. Being a librarian and leading a relatively safe and quiet life, Elizabeth has never had to or wanted to venture into the notorious bar. At the bar Elizabeth meets Ryker while she is nursing one of the few drinks she has consumed. Damn if he isn’t a tempting package!Ryker is a member of the Four Horsemen MC and is all about the biker lifestyle including having a plethora of fast and easy women at his fingertips. When he sees a cute redhead wearing a barbie-like pink dress at the bar, he is as intrigued by her innocence as he is by her sinfully sexy body. Ryker approaches the woman who has peaked his interest only to be turned down. Well, he has never backed down from a challenge and he was not going to start now!After their one hot and steamy night, Ryker decides he has not had enough of the sexy librarian. The pair begin seeing one another and soon some more profound feelings develop. But, can they fit into each other’s worlds? Ryker has never been in a real relationship prior to Elizabeth and following the standard dating rules seems like something he is unwilling to do. Can he give Elizabeth all that she needs? And what about Elizabeth, can she develop the type of backbone required to be part of Ryker’s biker world? This was a quick and entertaining read. I enjoyed the fact that despite coming from two very different worlds, both Elizabeth and Ryker somehow saw something in one another that was worth pursuing. It did not come easy and there was no insta-love. They have to put in some work and figure things out in order for a relationship between them to make sense. While this part of the storyline was what I enjoyed I did find that overall there were a few plot holes and things I found lacking. This is not an overly long book so everything happens relatively quickly and the intensity and grit normally found in biker books somehow gets lost in this one. The whole situation with Carl, Elizabeth’s ex-boyfriend, also fell a little flat for me. It was just too far-fetched to have him suddenly turn into this crazy stalker guy. And, the way it was resolved was simply too quick and easy. Perhaps if the book was a little longer, we could have had more of a foundation to build from as well as more room to explore matters in more depth.All in all, I am glad that I read Sweet Perdition and am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.***An advance reading copy of Sweet Perdition by Cynthia Rayne was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

Also, they were not in a "proper" relationship as such. And I hate cheating in a book, but no kissing or more happened at all. (hide spoiler)]HEA? - (view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]Would I read more by this author? - Yes Rating - 4 stars.★Review★It has been, what seems like ages since I read an MC book. At least an MC book that is good! Seems like people are writing bikers like they were all writing Vampires 5 years ago!Saying that though, I really loved this book.We have Ryker, Elizabeth, AKA Pinky, and not forgetting Lucy!And I never ever say this, EVER! But I loved the heroine Elizabeth more then the hero Ryker! That never happens for me. I loved Ryker too, in all his ott male dumbassness, but Pinky, I adored! She stood up for herself, took no crap, was feisty and fun.Banter between the two was great. I loved how they related to each other, and yes Ryker had some pretty dumb moments, he went down fighting at first, but he soon got over it!The suspense and drama could have maybe been dragged out a touch more, it just seemed to have come out of the blue, and get resolved quickly. I also expected her best friend to make an appearance at some point, but she did not.When at 85% on my kindle I turned the page and got an epilogue, I was slightly thrown and disappointed, but then I wanted more Ryker and Pinky!Some very intriguing secondary characters that I really hope get their own book. I am very intrigued by Shepherd and it will be interesting to see if and how she handles his book.And I know, I recently majorly ranted over a book and the way every other woman in the book, bar the heroine is portrayed as a slut - and yes this is an MC book. But the "hellions" were not a huge part of the book, and Ryker was not hugely respectful in his head, but I sort of expect it in a biker book, and can be a bit more relaxed about it, and even here, it was not that much a deal. It was more of a "they like it, we like it, no judging about it" attitude. An excellent 4 stars for me.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    I liked this one but I didn't come anywhere close to loving it. Rough biker who also happens to be tall, dark and all kinds of dreamy meets an innocent, only had "relations" with one other guy hook up? Check. Biker becoming possessive and...possessive after only one round? Double check. Biker reevaluating his situation based on the fact innocent won't sleep with him while he's getting some hoochie action on the side? Yep, that happened too. While I do think there's some great potential to be mined for future books, I'm hoping these ladies (two sisters are writing the series) buckle and get a new editor. Lots of punctuation weirdness and words that should have been other words. I knew the author was trying to say "absently" but the book still read "absolutely" and those little slip ups tend to take me away from the story, unfortunately.I can envision good things happening with this series. Shepherd's book, if it happens, looks to be a good one, even just for the fact he's a V.P and by the look of things seems to have a fondness for one of his young penis carrying recruits. That could be interesting...

    This is a sweet and sexy story about opposites attracting. It’s the first book in the Four Horsemen MC series by Cynthia Rayne.Our heroine, Elizabeth, is depicted as a prim and inexperienced librarian who also has an unexplored wilder side. Ryker, our hero, is a member of the Four Horsemen MC who is happy with his rowdy life and single status - until he meets Elizabeth. The night they meet, Elizabeth is drinking and crying in a biker bar after attending the wedding of her ex-boyfriend and her best friend. Ryker approaches her and they end up spending the night together. From there, the romance moves very fast. Regardless of them physically getting together so quickly, I would’ve preferred a slower emotional courtship where they got to know each other better. They move from lovers to dating to relationship in a matter of days. The actual love came later, which is one of the reasons I think this story worked well in the end. I do wish it would’ve been a longer book further exploring the theme of wild biker man + sweet naive woman.I loved both main characters. Despite his tough guy act, Ryker is both hot and cute. He calls her “Pinky” because the night they meet Elizabeth is wearing a fluffy pink bridesmaid dress. Elizabeth is a mesh of innocent and audacious, she doesn’t hesitate to sleep with Ryker hours after they meet even though she’s never had a one-night stand. The story is character-driven and the plot is mostly low angst, although we do have a troublesome villain at the end.The secondary characters were great, including Ryker’s biker mom and the MC members who were introduced. I really hope they get their own book soon (looks like Cowboy is up next!).

    Elizabeth Williams has always been a nice girl , even when her ex broke up with her and started dating her best friend, she reacted as if she was okay with it. Deep down she wasn't and having to attend the wedding in a pink fluffy outfit was pure torture. On a whim Elizabeth decides to drown her sorrows in a biker bar and meets Ryker. Ryker doesn't know what is up with the curvy woman in a ridiculous outfit, but he wants her at least for the night. One night leads to two and soon Ryker is getting heat about making her his old lady, Elizabeth has no clue about life in a MC but letting her go is not an option.I was not sure what to think on this one since the reviews were mixed, but I thought it was a lot of fun. I think the timeline was fast and could have been longer, but overall the story was fun and full of sass.

    Go to Heaven for the climate, to Hell for the company.- Mark Twain-I'm avoiding a lot of Biker romances as they always seem to be the same luckily this wasn't. This book was original, funny and a pleasure to read. The prim and proper Elizabeth is caught in a hideous pink dress drowning her sorrows. Ryker from the Four Horsemen spots her and can't help the attraction. Pinky as in Elizabeth is fed up of ggos girls finishing last so she takes a ride on the wild side. The book could have been a bit longer but I still loved it. I can't wait to read Shephards bbok.

    What a complete waste of my time. As far as MC books go, this one really sucked. Talk about a novel that's so passé with a hero and heroine that lacked any kind of depth and character. Of course you can't have an MC book without any sex, so yes, there's hot sex that's sure to please some. Definitely an MC series that I'm not going to continue with.

Look at my ratings for cover and blurb and ask -- why'd she read the damned thing? Well, I felt like it. Fresh off my craptastic "The Promise" experience, I just needed something quick. I saw this one being bantered about in a GR string I follow and thought -- "why not?"What did I like?1 -- It was fairly short. Moved pretty quickly. I'm not normally a fan of a short story or novella. I like something a bit meatier, but if this had been longer, I think I would have committed hari kari.2 -- It wasn't terrible. Not great, but okay. Thank God it was short :)3 -- I liked the story concept. I thought it'd be fun. I can't say it was fun, but it wasn't not fun.4 -- The naughty scenes weren't bad. A bit over the top for so early in a relationship with a "nice" girl, but not bad. She was trying to cram this in a short, so I'll give her this one.Now, what bothered me about it? 1 -- My number one issue with this one happens at the very end - when the story is complete. The author is rounding up her group of "hellions". This is the term used in the book for the sweetbutts. Seriously? Can we be a bit more original. Let's see whose ideas we can steal and cash in on. Right? Gah!2 -- This author actually had our "bad ass biker dude" think that Bon Jovi and Kiss are not bad music. The biker and our "hot" librarian were at the Red Bud Festival. A small town fair. Walking down the "midway", she asks him if he is having fun ... Here's the quote:""Not bad. Good music. Better eats." He shrugged. It could have been worse. They had an 80s rock band in the pavilion and the group had been working through Bon Jovi's hits all night. They threw in a bit of Kiss and Van Halen now and then ..."Enough said.3 -- The short format isn't this author's forte'. I'll try one more, but if it is as choppy as this one, I won't be back.4 -- Okay. Back again. This is a case of a nice girl trying to write about bad boys. It just doesn't come off as authentic. Not at all. The language is pretty tame. The mannerisms are off.5 -- The guy on the cover is total cheese. Doesn't do "hot" for me, unless you consider my comment #4 above. A nice girl writing and thinking bad boy. For me, the cover screams CHEESE!! Enough said.Okay, I could probably go on and on, but then my review would be longer than the book and that is so not cool. You may like this one. It wasn't terrible .. not really. It goes pretty quick.Happy Reading!

    I gotta say, I have been totally reluctant to read any MC books. I am a huge SOA fan and I could only imagine getting pissed at any kind of 'knock offs'. I like the real thing, thank you very much.BUT...ERMAGHERD!This book was a helluva a lot of hot sexy fun. In simplest terms, it's a good girl meets very bad boy story, but done extremely well. I LOVED Pinky, she was an awesome female character. One of the best I have read in awhile. She more than held her own with Ryker, who was a pretty badass alpha. Plus the sex was smokin'. Were there things that made me roll my eyes and go, puhleeze this is waaa-ay too SOA? Yeah, there was a bit. But this book makes its own impression in the end. It's very character-driven and the sparks flyin' between Pinky(aka Elizabeth) and Ryker(aka...well, okay, I won't give away his real name, lol) are totally believable and make for a damn good time. I can't wait to read Cowboy's story!! Yee-haw! lol

    Awful.Ridiculous.Disappointing.WTH did I just read and then had to skim & skip all the stupid steam parts.Nothing but a sex book when it all came down to it. The stalker ex-boyfriend was the lamest part of the book and how it was taken care of. Ryker was a horny asshole. Elizabeth was a hidden closet dirty slut in the end. Ryker was a dirty, crass talker of a biker. He also threw in some "fifty shade" kinds of moments. (IE: Plugs. Spankings. Having her wear certain things. Keep her panties if she wanted to ride his bike. Doing stuff to her in public. ... If there's more I honestly didn't try to find out.)Also, Ryder would be a total dick and do a few messed up things and she would be pissed off or livid. But low and behold, he gets his hands on her and she's all liquid putty ready to let it go and be royally screwed.

    3½ stars!☆☆☆*I was offered an ARC via the lovely author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!*#A librarian and a biker. Who would have thought?#Sweet Perdition was a good start to Cynthia Rayne’s Four Horsemen MC series. It had all of the things you could want in an MC book and then some.Normally, while I do love myself a good MC read, I had grown weary and sort of tired of this genre as a lot of what I had been coming across were practically all the same and all falling into similar patterns: sex, booze, a lot of f bombs, sexist comments, grit, and ridiculous biker drama. Blah, blah, blah.So what made me like this book? It has NO instantaneous love story line going on! I fricken' HATE that! *ugh!* While both characters are very attracted to one another, they don’t start sprouting declarations of everlasting love right away like most books.No, they start off at two totally opposite totem poles where the guy who is a total commitment-phobe and a woman looking to a bleak future at being alone.But of course…one night changes everything and Ryker feels his sinuous, no holds barred world turning upside down. Unnerved by Elizabeth’s new presence in his life, Ryker tries to push his feelings away for her and carry on as he had always had.But when danger lurks itself and Ryker finds it targeting Elizabeth, can Ryker protect her without losing his heart in the process? And will Elizabeth ultimately be his eventual game changer? His ONE exception to his one night stand rule?Read and you will find out!##Not bad, not bad for a beginning Ms. Rayne! While I do think that there is a few glitches to be worked on, I do look forward to reading more form your MC series!##· Review to be posted on my blog on June 20th. · :)

    I liked the story idea, I really did, however, I felt that the whole thing was very rushed to the point that any believability sort of went out the window... Perhaps my perception was off but the entire story takes place in like three maybe four days.Hero meets heroine, they have one night stand, decide they don't want it to end there, he picks her up the next night for a date, the heroine stays the night, the next morning the Hero's mother is grilling the heroine about her relationship with her son!? Wait... What relationship!? Two nights of raunchy sex and one actual date does not a relationship make...Then, to top it off the whole point of the story is the heroine was in the bar where she meets the Hero after watching her ex-boyfriend marry her best friend and two days later the ex is all up in the h's grill going "Oh you're dating a biker, I never knew you were so sexually adventurous I want you to be mine again!" TWO DAYS AFTER HIS WEDDING TO HER BEST FRIEND!? The entire novel was in hyper drive from beginning to end and could have used a lot more fleshing out. Character back stories, something to space some of these events out. (All though making the ex a creepy bastard was done pretty good, I just think more could have gone into it, stretch it out everything just went way too fast.) One thing I absolutely loved and adored was Shepherd & Pretty Boy and what was up there. That book I would buy to see what happens!All this being said, I think the author is off to a great start, I loved the characters I loved the concept of the MC, I just wish that more time and care had been put into fleshing all these things out and that more time had been put into making the timeline believable.

    68% DNFThis book was one big cliche. It felt like snippets from every MC book I've read thrown into one, and not in a good way. Ryker felt like a bad-ass alpha wanna-be. Cheesy one-liners. I rolled my eyes so much I got a headache.I tried but just couldn't take it anymore.

    3.5-4 starsThis was a pretty good story. I liked Elizabeth and Ryker and their story was enjoyable and I liked the chemistry between them. This is the first book I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'll probably try more of her work in the future. Elizabeth is a librarian and has always been a "good girl". All that got her was being the bridesmaid at her friend's wedding to Elizabeth's ex-boyfriend. Since the wedding was dry, Elizabeth feels the need for a drink immediately and the first bar she comes to is Perdition. She knows it's the MC's bar but she doesn't care at the time.Ryker is a biker in a MC. He's the brother of the Pres and son of a previous member and Ryker grew up in the MC world. The MC is clean to a point but does get involved in some dangerous things. Ryker does his duty and takes advantage of the club "hellions" (a nicer name than some MC books use for club whores) frequently. He never intends to settle down and find an old lady but when he meets Elizabeth things start to change. Elizabeth is in the bar drinking. Even though she has a pink monstrosity of a bridesmaid's dress on, Ryker sees the shape of her and decides he likes it. He goes to talk to her and she spills out the story of her getting stuck in the wedding of her ex and her friend. She doesn't care about the ex but because of their history everyone at the wedding had been staring and whispering behind Elizabeth's back. The fact that there was no alcohol at the wedding didn't help things so she was concentrating on drinking and not really receptive to Ryker's advances. Ryker does manage to get her interest though and after a game of pool with an unexpected ending, they end up on Ryker's bike and them back at his place for the night. Ryker doesn't usually bring women back to his place but he quickly realizes that he wants more than a one night stand with Elizabeth. She's rather surprised at this fact but agrees to see him again. Of course she has some concerns about the MC and what it does because most of the town doesn't know how legal it's dealings are. Ryker tells her some stuff but can't get in to everything. Elizabeth actually accepts the MC business better than she accepts Ryker's need to lay claim to her but still insists that since she's not his old lady he's free to do whatever (or more accurately whomever) he wants. This causes some issues between them and I liked that Elizabeth wasn't a wimp about things and pushed back and gave Ryker a piece of her mind when it was needed. There were also some issues because of Elizabeth's ex showing up and trying to cause trouble and Elizabeth shows her backbone with him as well (even if she does underestimate him a bit). There's some drama between Ryker and Elizabeth and he does hurt her in a bout of relationship dumbassedness but thankfully they're able to work things out and ended the story heading their way to a HEA together.I enjoyed this story very much. I liked Elizabeth and Ryker and liked their interactions and chemistry together. Ryker acted like a bit of a jerk at times but it wasn't too bad. Overall, the story was pretty good and I had no major complaints. It kept me thinking about it and wanting to read more when I was pulled away for a time so it was engaging. I'm planning to try more of the series in the future. I'd recommend this story. :D

    Opposites attract. Ryker is 35 years old and was born into the MC life. He’s drop dead gorgeous and doesn’t have to do much more than smile to get women to drop their panties for him. He’s a commitment phobe who has decided he never wants to marry because of his own childhood. But then again, he’s tired of the club whores and the same old, same old. In comes Elizabeth, a librarian, who chooses the biker bar in a moment of rebellion after serving as a bridesmaid in her ex-boyfriend and BFF’s wedding. She really doesn’t still love the ex, she’s glad she let him go but then again she doesn’t see herself moving forward in her staid, dull, life. Ryker sees her in the bar, puts the move on her expecting to have no problems. But she rejects him and the challenge is on. Ryker has never had a “good girl” and his goal now is to win the challenge. We see a relationship develop with the help of Ryker’s 50 something bad, biker babe Mother who wants her son to settle down with a good girl. We meet Shepherd, the VP and another alpha-hot bad boy, who the author teases us with the possibility of a M/M relationship with a prospect. There’s angst with a plot of the ex-stalking the h and some funny one liners. This was a first time read by a new author for me. I was pleasantly pleased with the book and think there is an opportunity for the author to put out some really good reads based on the characters revealed here. I am an avid fan of MC romances and can say this is one of the better books released in recent months by a first time author. We get a strong h, a strong alpha possessive male who can show his sweet side and a decent story line. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

    A great start to this series. It effectively gave insight into the lives of how the MC operates, while taking us on a helluva ride in the hot and sexy erotic romance department. It doesn't hurt that I love the contrast of the sweet librarian and badass biker falling for one another. Especially when heroine in question is no shrinking violet and definitely when she is putting the totally alpha hero in his place at the same time not making him seem less than a man. All that and the sex scenes were super hot too.

    Copy received from author in exchange for an honest review.4 starsI loved how this book started out! I used to devour MC books back to back but more recently I've been cleansing my palate with YA novels so it's been awhile since I've read a biker book, let alone one I really enjoy. I struggled a bit on rating it 3.5 or 4 stars (in my eyes the .5 difference really does make a difference in how much I enjoyed the book) but ultimately decided I'm comfortable with 4 stars. Overall, it is written well bar some very minor editing issues, the characters were likable and Rykers OTT 'knuckle-dragging ape' more than made up for the plot short-comings.We meet our MCs when Ryker notices Elizabeth in Perdition bar, a bar owned by the Four Horsemen MC. Elizabeth Williams is a librarian drowning her sorrows at the bar after attending her ex-boyfriend and best friend's wedding, she sticks out like sore thumb in a pink concoction of ugly which she was required to wear as one of the brides attendants. Ryker is a 35 yr old member in The Four Horsemen MC, he's a tatted up rough & tumble, cocky alpha with a fondness for Fat Bottomed Girls. Elizabeth/Pinky wins a bet for a ride on Rykers bike over a game of pool. I really enjoyed the banter when Ryker informed Pinky of the toll price to riding bitch on his bike. This sets up some nice sexual tension through the ride to Rykers house. Thus begins their journey into scorching hot steamy-as-all-hell smexy times. From here onwards the story moved very fast, though there were some drama mostly due to Rykers alphahole tendencies - all were resolved very fast & too easy. I loved the first half of the book but the last 50% felt rushed! I would have loved to see a little more character & plot development. The ending was abrupt with an epilogue at 85%. Not the perfect book but good enough to keep me turning pages and interested enough in following through reading the 2nd installment of this series - Cowboys story. Standalone. Cheating?(view spoiler)[No (hide spoiler)]

    Elizabeth finds herself belly up to the bar, in a crappy bridesmaids dress, after watching her once best friend marrying her once boyfriend. Plot twist? It’s a biker bar. Second plot twist, she’s a librarian. I know right!? Who wouldn’t love this?As far as biker/MC books go, this one is pretty good. It’s not so much dark, as it is old school chauvinist attitude. I liked these two together. She may have looked prim and proper, but she didn’t take any guff either.Also, the second in command, Shepherd -his is a story I don’t think I have heard before. So I am intrigued for his book to come. 3 Stars I like it!T~www.ktbookreviews.com

    I don’t read that many MC books so I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this. I really liked it and ended up reading it a one sitting. I loved Elizabeth and Ryker although there were a couple times that I wanted to reach into my kindle and smack him around a little for being such a dickhead. I really liked all the side characters and I can’t wait to read their stories. I couldn’t figure out whether or not the Four Horsemen were criminals, which left a little bit of a mystery for future books as well. My only complaint was the length. I wanted to stay with Elizabeth and Ryker a little longer. I hope to see them again.

    3.0 RATING- I only read this book because I wanted to read a later book in the series and happened to have picked this one up for free. It was an okay read. There were a couple scenes where I thought the hero was a dick, pretty standard stuff for a MC read I guess. With all the MC romances available this definitely wouldn't be at the top of the pile for books I'd recommend.

    This has the bones to be a great story, but it lacked time and details. I will read more of the series because I've found sometimes it takes a book or two for an author to get their groove.

    Nothing to squeeze about !Nothing original or unique. I'm not a huge fan of a short read normally. I can say though when they are like this one, I'm a HUGE fan :)

    Maybe 3 1/2If you want lots of sexy times this is the book for you.I didn't think there was much of a plot and was very quick to jump to the end.The thing that mad me mad was anytime they got into an argument, he just pushed her over whatever was available and had sex and it just made everything ok. I guess that is why it I called fiction.

    Promising first in series.Elizabeth is having a bad day, in fact she's having a bad day to rival all her other bad days and she needs a drink, she's dressed in barbie pink after attending the wedding of her best friend and her, yes her ex-boyfriend, so the too nice and usually too good, quiet librarian is sat in a rough biker bar knocking back the drinks, I mean, as if the wedding wasn't bad enough it was dry, she didn't even have the luxury of alcohol to help her through. At this bar 'Perdition' she meets Ryker, now Ryker's a member of the Four Hoursemen MC and he's used to a whole different set of woman, more loose, easy and well, skanky, which makes Elizabeth a complete change and he's intrigued by her.I liked that they were so different and Elizabeth, apart from her appalling previous taste in men, namely Carl, was great, well initially she was great she kind of lost herself in places, I didn't like the part where she goes to the bar, you'll know the part when you get there if you read this book and I have to say the only thing that saved this for me was the dual POV's because while Ryker was being a complete dick we have the benefit, well maybe benefit stretching it a bit I mean I'm not arguing that he's an idiot at times but we know he's, in his own way just trying to save face I just wish all that shit wouldn't pour out of his mouth when we know he doesn't mean it. Ok, I know I'm rambling but as a biker reading woman I always feel predisposed to forgive the hot guy that means well but has had a hard life that's made him this way and all he needs is the love of a good woman, I know I know I'm setting women's right back, but we know what to expect from MC books and if we didn't like this type of man we wouldn't read these books. I was impressed by her and how she handled things with Carl, Ryker, well I liked him as well, I mean he's a hot biker what's not to like but he struggled to adjust more and he's a man so at times he's an idiot.I would have liked more, the story felt rushed in places although I agree with the reviewer who said it felt longer than the novella it is, I must admit I kept expecting the best friend to pop up, and while there were a few things I didn't really like, I still can't believe she wore that outfit, I mean talk about being outside your comfort zone but on the whole I thought this was a great first book and I'm looking forward to the next one. Shepherds book, when it comes should be interesting.So in answer to the question do librarians and bikers mix, yes they do, very well and often.

    Four Stars“I don’t think this is fixable. You are an outlaw biker. I am a librarian. We come from two very different worlds.” I'll be honest, when the author had kindly asked me to check out her new MC book, I was a bit hesitant. There are a ton of MC books out there and unfortunately one seems to be bleeding into the next. It sucks, but the market is a bit saturated. However, this one involves a Librarian and a bad-ass Biker, which is a bit different in on itself. And after reading the first chapter, I couldn’t say no. I was hooked. What had being such a good girl all the freaking time got her? Bupkiss. That’s what. Elizabeth was having a bad day. She found herself at a known biker bar after attending her ex-boyfriend’s wedding to her best friend. She was looking to drink her misery away, as well as invite some sort of excitement in her life. That excitement came in the form of Ryker.“Oh, Pinky, you are just begging to be corrupted.”Ryker wanted Elizabeth, badly. He knew a woman like her didn’t belong in his world, but once he saw her, he had to have her. But he also knew he had to tread carefully. Elizabeth wasn’t the casual-fling-type. Women like her wanted more than a tumble in the sheets. Along with the strange pull she already has on him, he knew this woman could be trouble. I was very impressed with this author’s first crack at writing an MC novel; at least I think it’s her first. LOL. Regardless, this was a fun and fairly easy read – some drama, but not to over the top. Plus the steam was pretty fucking HOT. Yowza! Who knew a librarian could be so kinky? Looking forward to reading more of this series. **Complimentary Advanced Reader Copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review**-----♥♥♥ FOLLOW ME ♥♥♥Blog: www.sweetspotbookblog.comFacebook: www.facebook.com/SweetSpotBookBlogTwitter:@thessamari

    3.5 stars. This was a quick, fun read perfect for biker romance addicts. Definitely on the lighter side, even lighter than, say, Kristen Ashley's Own the Wind. Ryker was all kinds of growly and alpha, which was a definite plus. Minimal hissy-fit drama from Elizabeth, which was another plus. Typos were a minus. And I didn't get much of a sense of the Four Horsemen MC in this book, which was another minus. A few allusions to quasi-legal shenanigans and vigilantism...? I guess we'll learn more in the next installment. Not a lot of detail in this book outside of Ryker and Elizabeth sexy-times, but it was still a cute, wish-fulfilling novella and a pleasant summer read.I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
