About the Author
In life, Scott Hildreth fears clowns, flying, and amusement park rides. In reading Scott’s writing, it appears he is fearless; subject matter avoided by most is commonplace in his work. Scott has gone as long as a month without as much as a sip of water, and rarely sleeps more than a few hours a night. He is of the opinion coffee is the lifeblood of his writing. Scott believes he is broken, and his writing generally includes a protagonist who is also much in need of repair. Often discussing suicide, bulimia, homosexuality, domestic abuse, divorce, PTSD, cancer, alcoholism, drug abuse, religion, and lack thereof, Scott’s writing has been described as “bold, in your face, and fearless.” Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house.

So here's what I liked...the interaction between Axton and his club brothers.
And here's what I did not like...
-it took 20% of the book just for the two main characters to meet and start interacting.
-it took 75% of the book for the two main characters to kiss for the first time, and it was a super quick one.
-Axton asks Avery to go with him and meet Mexican gang members, where he needs her to translate stuff. She ends up shooting/killing people. Up until then she had been a pretty normal person, but she does all that, does not blink an eye, goes home and sleeps. Everything is good, and she can't get enough of Axton afterwards. Huh?
-Avery was not a very nice person. She claimed that her roommate, Sloan, was her best friend in the world. That lasted about a day after she met Axton, when she decided that Sloan was a slut, a fat one at that. Even though, up until then, she went on and on about Sloan's body and how she wished she had it. She also plotted not so nice things for Sloan for when the two of them were going to attend the MC's bbq, and she thought it was really funny.
-I did not understand at all what Axton's issues were. Yes, he had been abused as a child by his father, and now he kept on snapping his rubber band when he was nervous. Wasn't he supposed to be this badass biker who killed people for a living?????? I didn't get any closure on that part.
-the book was almost over when Avery and Axton finally got it on, and he went from having some "issues" in that department, to major "progress" and a sex machine, and didn't even need to snap his rubber band.
-in the end he claims Avery as his woman, but it did not feel like love for either one. Avery tells him that she has always wanted a biker bad boy, and he fits the bill to a T. He trusts her and doesn't think he'll find another woman that would have his back like she does.
I am going to read book 2 in the series in the hopes that I'll like it better. If that one doesn't work out, I'll give up on the series altogether.
I really enjoyed the writing style, and conversational writing style in this story. The "romance" is unconventional & is a suuuuper slow build up - we get to know Avery & Axton individually & see their interactions from initial meeting, attraction, friendship, proven loyalty & finally a physical relationship. There's other stuff going on - the MC has a deal going down & some crap goes along w/ that, and then there's Avery's friend Sloan, who I never really got a good read on. There are some graphically violent scenes & I skipped through those out of self-preservation. There's enough of a "warning" or "build up" that if you need to do that, you can, which I appreciated!
All in all, this was a different type of story & MC than I normally enjoy, but I liked the book & will continue w/ the series! : )
I did like the main characters though. I felt they had good chemistry. Just the story surrounding them is what fell flat for me. Things that were left unturned or on the surface disappointed me. Then things that were trival at best were given ALOT of air time. I could have done without this.
Lot of angles where this one could have gone to make it a great read, but sadly it just stayed on the surface of having potential, but it not being truly realized *shrugs*
Still have tons of books by this author I want to read though. But I do not see myself continuing with this series.
So I wouldn't recommend this read with enthusiasm. It could go either way for you. Just don't expect to be blown away with this one.
