Have you met Ryder Knox, newest badass biker of the Scorpio Stinger MC series by Jani Kay?
4.5 stars! Badass bikers in MCs are not my faves. I usually avoid MC series because they are often very violent. Since I enjoyed Open Your Eyes and Lost In France (Firebird series) by Jani Kay, I was willing to read this one. I love that Rebecca and Max from Lost In France were included as Max is Ryder’s brother and Rebecca is Jade’s cousin.
Ryder curses a lot and is quite crude, but his huge heart is hooked on Jade. She is the daughter of rich parents and her brother, Harrison, is a cop and has his own reasons for hating MCs and wanting to arrest and shut all of them down. Ryder was rescued by Cobra and the Scorpio Stinger MCs, so his loyalty to the MC is warranted. This sets up the collision of their worlds.
Ryder got my heart because he is so protective and such a hot lover. Jade is her feisty, independent self and has learned to view Ryder as an equal. Harrison and Cobra are against the match. The tension is at a high, and I expect that an all out war between the cops and MC is bound to happen. The rest of the series is going to be exciting.
I enjoyed this erotic romance. As I read more, I got so involved and absorbed in it. By the end, I wanted and needed more of the series. Well done, Jani! Will Ryder and Jade get their HEA… will it last? There are some surprise family revelations that are a game changer for Ryder.
Note: I received an advance reader copy (ARC) in exchange for an honest review.
There’s a chapter from Unchain My Heart, book 2 in the series. What a good teaser! If you read Ryder~ Scorpio Stinger MC prequel, you’ll get more information that adds to this story.
After The Incident, Harrison had zero tolerance toward MC clubs and bikers. He blamed them for ruining his life. My brother would kill him on sight if he knew I’d f***ed Ryder.
My life had just become complicated. It had more twists than any romance novel I’d ever read. Because I wouldn’t be able to resist Ryder, even if I knew it could lead to his death.
How f***ed up was that?
“I’m serious. This can’t happen again. You can’t come anywhere near me. It’s not going to end well. I don’t want you dead.”
He laughed, a low ominous sound. “I’ll take my chances. Your p***y is mine. Nothing is going to stop me from taking it whenever I want it. And that will be all the time. Get used to it, Princess.”
Full blown dread rose in my chest. My throat tightened until I struggled to breathe.
The stubborn assh**e biker isn’t going to listen to me.
There would be casualties. Blood even.
Two worlds were colliding.
Mine and Ryder’s.
Just what in heaven’s name had I gotten myself into?
Rating: **** 1/2 (out of 5)
I have been a bookworm all my life – as a voracious reader, I would gladly spend my last dollar on a book (who needs to eat anyway?). I’m always fascinated that for the mere price of a book (often less than the price of a coffee!), I can escape my life for a while and see through someone else’s eyes into their world.
In my ‘other’ life, I am a business woman and a scientist – a creative scientist though – I formulate skin care products and brew up concoctions in my lab…*evil laugh*
One of the questions I am asked most, is if I have been to all the places I describe in my books. The answer is YES!
Besides reading, my favorite ‘thing’ is traveling – I have been lucky to travel the world, learning about different cultures and I have come to the realization that no matter where on this planet we live, we all ultimately want the same thing: Happiness (imao).
In the name of research I always do first hand exploration of places I write into my books. (I predict more travel in my future… LOL)
Above all, I believe in Karma, Miracles and Magic…
I love the colour red, am a fiery Aries, am impatient and always storming ahead with those ram’s horns, bashing my head…I have a wicked sense of humour and embarrass my kids these days (*see Karma*)
Ever since my childhood, I’ve wanted to be a writer and now I’ve finally faced my fear of failure head on and just did it!! I have discovered my unique style of writing and my ‘voice’ and now that I have, I’m not shutting up till I’ve told all the stories in my head. (Yeah, those characters are a noisy bunch)
I would love to hear from you 🙂
