About the Author

L.J. Stock on Victoria L. James ~ What can I say about Victoria L. James? Loads actually, she’s an amazingly talented author and I had the absolute distinct pleasure of writing with her. I also call her a friend. When we first met, we bonded instantly over our love of music, Victoria tends to be as eclectic as I am with her tastes. She finds stories in lyrics and feels the moods in the melodies. When we first started writing together, I’ll admit I was intimidated. Here is this woman with a huge passion for putting words onto paper and painting pictures so clearly that you are completely immersed in them. How was I going to keep up with that? I’m not sure I ever did, but over time we’ve built up a repertoire. We bounce off one another and bring our characters to the forefront and hope that the interactions are as real as they appear for us. On a more personal note, Victoria is bright, smart, kind, intelligent, funny, caring and witty. She can see so much in the world around her and always has time for anyone. Victoria lives in sunny ole Yorkshire with her family and her cats - had to mention them - and can normally be found in the playground of her imagination, listening to the Foo Fighters. ~~~~~~~ Victoria L. James on L.J. Stock ~ There aren’t many people you bump into in life that you want to both work and spend your free time with. From meeting L.J. through the wonder that is the internet, we soon came to realise that we had a hell of a lot in common. Music was where our friendship truly began, but our writing partnership flourished not too far behind. I always felt like my writing was missing something, and it was only when I read L.J.’s work that I realised what exactly that was. It was missing her influence! After spending over a year working together, day in, day out, not a moment goes by where I don’t thank the Twitter Gods for bringing this amazingly strong and talented woman into my life. She’s an inspiration, a positive force in every situation and one hell of a talented writer. To say I’m honoured that she wanted to create a new world with me is a gross understatement. I’m blown away. One day, I hope I get lucky enough to visit her in Texas, where she lives with her family and her zoo of animals, so we can write by her pool and take part in our other dream… The great Taylor Kitsch Road (stalking) Trip. Who needs a yacht in the Caribbean when we have that to look forward to, right?

This book had the potential to be an overall 5 star rating for me but unfortunately fell short of that. I would like to say that this team of authors exhibited the ability to deliver an awesome romance, good characters and the ability to make me connect with the characters and feel the emotions of each.

What I liked:
I loved the way the authors delivered the romance between Drew and Ayda. I was totally caught up with them and their struggles. Drew is in a very dark place after spending almost 5 years in prison. He likes to shut himself off and has a hard time controlling his rage when the darkness descends upon him. Never does he raise one hand to Ayda though. My heart hurt for him and his struggles to readjust to life after prison. Ayda is a very strong heroine. She’s faced many challenges in her 25 years and is raising her 15 year old brother after the deaths of her parents. Drew and Ayda start off as adversaries but eventually realize they are kindred souls.
I would rate the delivery of the romance between them as 5 stars.

What I didn’t like
The authors decided to write a story about a motorcycle club in the state of Texas USA. It is clear that little or no research was done about motorcycle clubs in Texas or really anywhere else in the US. It seemed like a decision was made to make the romance more attractive by throwing in something about MC’s without any real thought. There were so many phrases/words that I did not recognize, which made the flow seem disjointed to me. Now, if this MC has been located in Australia or the UK, I might have skipped over the words/phrases but if you’re going to put an MC in one of the most bad ass states in the US, it should have some authenticity. When did the “clubhouse” become the “hut” or the “treehouse?

I am not going to go into a description of this story. Other reviewers have done that quite well. I will say, this book had me hooked from the get go. I liked the writing, characters, dialogue, story, and flow. Drew(H) is a very complicated man in both thought and action. He has issues. He is flawed. I liked him. Ayda(h) is a strong, takes no crap, independent woman. And yes, she too is flawed. I liked her. The MC characters were likable as well. I have read many MC books and I was very pleased with this new addition to the genre. I look forward to the next installment. But, of course, I did have some issues.....

I have never read any work from either one of these authors before. I do not know where they are from. I do know that this book is supposed to take place in Texas. I assumed it was Texas, USA. Was I wrong? I live in the USA. I have never heard the expression "sniffing up". Anywhere. Where does that expression come from? It is used repeatedly. The MC club house was referred to as the "hut". Ayda called the MC clubhouse the "tree house". What? I have never heard an MC club house called a "hut" or a "tree house". And saying so and so is on a "walkabout"? If the story takes place in Texas, USA then the characters should speak as if they are indeed in Texas, USA. My other issue was the gate/fence that was surrounding the MC clubhouse. Ayda had to get the code to get in, or you had to be let in, but the rival MC guys just drove on in. Maybe I read it wrong. The gate thing just confused me. It seemed inconsistent. But, like I said, I could be wrong. It happens. The other issue was the lack of structure within the MC. There were no officers. 1%er MC's usually have officers.

I am not a huge MC theme fan. I have read too many stories that sex was the main plot in the book and any twist and turns usually ended up back in the bed or the graveyard so I was curious to see how I would like this book.

The truth is, once I started it I couldn’t put it down. Not only are the characters rich in personality and real life drama, they are developed so well they carry the story till the last page.

The authors put a lot of effort into the plot, the real story behind the events that will lead the reader to a new family that I am sure they won’t soon forget. I was addicted to Ayda, Tate and Drew the moment they showed up in a scene together. There is just some chemistry that can’t be ignored, even though Tate is Ayda’s teenage brother; he plays a huge part in Ayda and Drew’s story
I could give you a recap about the events in the book but that would spoil the thrill of reading it. I want to talk about the messages and brilliance of these authors as they brought two people who would never normally meet together.

Ayda is the guardian of her brother Tate after their parents died. She gave up her dreams of a career and college for three minimum paying jobs, small house and no social life just to keep his high school dreams alive. Ayda can be a smart mouth at times but she was raised by parents who valued honesty, courage and dedication. Ayda carries guilt over her parents, but she sees life through the filter of choices and responsibility versus guilt. You accept what you are responsible for and make the best you can of any given situation, the guilt you can feel it but you must never let it control your life and choices.
