Strike, the third novel in the series, focuses on Spencer Jones, Aiden's teammate, he's young, attractive, and definitely enjoying the spoils of motor cross, with women falling at his feet. His life is work, motorcross and plenty of no strings attached nights with available women and it seems to be suiting him, until he meets April.
April, self confessed tomboy, lover of high adrenaline sports, motorbike rider, from the second Spencer lays eyes on her he's hooked. April is direct, funny, confident and stunning, she immediately pushes him to be more, to prove himself worthy of a chance with her.
While these characters are both so outwardly confident, what I adored so much is that they both question themselves, question their professions, their choices, their pasts. I connected so deeply with April, I felt with such painful clarity her questioning herself, if she is enough, because I've struggled with that too, I've asked myself the same question. The more I read, the more I fell in love with her, with her spirit, her tenacity - reading Strike, experiencing it, was freeing in a way few books have been for me.
Ryder paces this story perfectly, it had my attention from the first page to the last lines, without a doubt Strike is Jennifer's best work to date, from the dedication I knew this story was going to be special, my expectations were high and Ryder did not disappoint.
After a very intriguing (I'd love the details of this Ms. Ryder *ahem*) prologue, we're thrown right into the story of Spencer and April. It starts like a typical boy meets girl story, but neither character is quite typical.
Spencer is a financial consulting, suit wearing, responsible and boring type by day. It's not the life he wants, it's the life he's been guilted into living. His dreams lie in Motocross. His passion is there, it's the life he gets only on limited occasions and it's the only dream he's ever had.
He's also a man whore. The Manwhore of Motocross. Not even a one night stand type of guy..he's more a screw 'em and kick them out type. No overnighters, no do-overs, no commitments. Not ever.
April knows what it's like to come in second. To not be the prize at the end of the race. Being set aside one too many times has made her live free but keep strong walls on her heart. Problem is, her live life to the fullest attitude comes with a strong sexual appetite and that appetite wants Spencer as the main course.
She doesn't relent easily though. April is the tease of all teasers but upfront about it and with good reason. They way she holds Spencer off is adorable because you understand why she is doing it. It isn't a form of torture, she isn't giving him false promises. The fun loving, independent, dare devil self is petrified to fall too fast and get burned.Read more ›
I’ll be the first to admit. Couldn’t stand Jones. Wanted nothing to do with him while reading about him in Spike and then to find out he gets his own story – let’s just say, wasn’t thrilled. And true to his form, his emotional detachment to anything remotely to do with a relationship is blindingly obvious.
Now, let’s get to April. I get why the author says she’d turn for April, totally understand what she means. I think there’s a beautiful fragility to April’s character that it’s hard for anyone to not to also fall in love with her. I love how she calls all the shots when it comes to Spencer. She really did make the boy into a man.
The writing in this book is seamless. I love the wit from the characters – even when they are in their turmoil – the writing hits your right in the heart and I was waiting for him to walk after April finally allowed him completely into her life but I’m glad to say – he didn’t. If anything, he fought the good fight and came out on top. Like I said – he’s a man now. The love triangle is well written even though we all know who is the owner of April’s heart.
The way Ryder brings in characters is another strength for her. Their introductions are seamless and they add to the variety and complexity of each book.
I bought my own copy of this book. This can be read as a standalone but where’s the fun in that? Strike is book three in the series following Spark and Spike.
