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.
There is a ton of cute banter and frisky push and pull from these two. The entire book has a refreshing and fun feel, mixed with some super sexiness. I loved that about it. I also enjoyed that it wasn't full of angst and drama, a great change of pace from the typical New Adult read. I really enjoyed it and look forward to backtracking my ass to the beginning of the series!
