Wild Riders, Book 1
Synopsis: He’s a Harley-riding ex-thief…she’s a gun-toting ex-socialite. Together they’ll take the ride of a lifetime in this erotic romance from “an undoubted master.”*
Mac Canfield was the last man Lily West expected to see again, never mind aim her gun at. But there he was, the bad boy who’d broken her heart years ago – still a thief, hijacking a priceless artifact – and it was all she could do to push aside the memories of how it felt to have his perfectly chiseled body next to hers.
Mac was no less shocked to see the beautiful girl next-door again, threatening to shoot him. Little did she know she was blowing his cover. He had to get her out of harm’s way without succumbing to his desire to take her on a hot trip down memory lane.
But Lily has no intention of going anywhere with Mac, which means he’ll have to resort to kidnapping. Unless she agrees to let him take her for the kind of ride destined to drive them both unbelievably wild.
Review: I am increasingly drawn to novels featuring Bikers. Although I have read only one at the moment, I was curious to discover a bit more. Jaci Burton seemed like a good idea. Indeed, I had the opportunity to read some of her other romances and after spending a good time with them, I wanted to try another of her series.
Mac and Lily have a past history together, but this relationship didn’t really end that well. 10 years have passed and each lives his/her life on his/her side … Lily became a private detective, far from her father to avoid the affect he can do on her life. As for Mac, he now works for a secret government agency and his last mission, places him straight on the road of the young woman. Indeed, while Lily watches a museum, our biker enters and steals a hidden virus in an artifact … What happened to him? For whom is it? Can she trust him?
It was nice enough to read about Bikers even if this side is actually quite light. It focuses mainly on the virus and the actions of our characters but especially the close relationship of the two. Even though I had a good time with the novel, I admit that hot scenes were a little too present for me and finally I found that the story really only turned around that. However, I am curious to see what will happen afterwards.
In all cases the reading is done very quickly and we’re easily taken by the author’s style which is always nice to rediscover. Remains to be seen what she will reserve for the second volume.
It is a shame the story wasn’t more balanced. I am curious about the virus and would probably enjoy that aspect more.
me too, I just needed a bit more
I still haven’t read a biker one 😉
you should try
Aw bummer it wasn’t totally for you. It’s one of my favorite erotica series 🙂 Hope the next works better for ya.
maybe because it’s erotica
Huh. Definitely different from the other biker books out there. Plus, it’s Jaci Burton! How could this not be just as steamy as her other books?!
Though fascinated by the biker community I have yet to read any ‘biker’ based novels. A shame this wasn’t all you hoped for. If you had to recommend one biker book to me which would it be?
I have only read 2 so I’m not the best for that
It’s funny – when I started the Play by Play series I thought the first book was WAY more sex than substance, but each subsequent book felt like there was more substance than the previous one. Maybe this series will be that way too:)
yes maybe so
Hehe, lots of people skim over these scenes, because there are more or less uncomfortable 🙂 But I understand the appeal of Biker-set stories. Great review!
it’s just a bit too much
I still haven’t tried one of these biker books. I don’t know why, which one should I try first?
lol it’s not up to me
I’m all for a good steamy romance but I like my books to be more than that as well. Sorry this one focused a bit too much on the relationship and not enough of the other aspects. it still does sound like an okay read though.
yes it was
I don’t mind a sexy tale but give me plot to go with the sexy. I don’t think I will like this enough. I hope the next one is better for you though
I’ve heard so much about Jaci Burton, but haven’t had a chance to read any of her books just yet, which I know regret. Also, bikers are delicious. 🙂
Sounds like it has some good things going for it
Sounds so cheesy, but I am oddly intrigued.
Nice quick reads. Sweet. And loving the bike on the cover. Sounds like something for a weekend enjoyment. 🙂
I think I’ve only read one biker book, need to try out more. Good review 🙂
I keep seeing biker books, but I’ve not yet tried one. I keep saying that I’m going to, but never seem to get to it. I can’t seem to let my shifters and vampires go. Maybe one day soon.
