4 pinky stars!
Honestly when I started this book I didn’t expect to like it so much. Just a few hours ago I had finished another book that involved some serious ugly crying and I thought, maybe it wouldn’t be fair to read this back to back but OMG I’m so glad I did. I was on the edge of a major book hangover and this one pulled me back!
First things first, this is an MC book and you know how much I LOOVE MC books and everything that reminds me of SOA because by now I’m having withdrawals so I’ll take what I can get.
This story is about Ryker, the Four Horsemen MC member, the classic biker dude that pretty much adores his Harley – named Lucy – and that’s it. Club hellions and the outlaw stuff are what his life is about.
Elizabeth aka Pinky, is a librarian. Which I loved because they couldn’t be more different and yet opposites attract.
She is returning from her ex-boyfriend’s wedding to her best friend and is pretty much in need of a drink. Or fifty.
Upon seeing her in that ridiculous pink bridesmaid outfit, Ryker’s radar is all about her and soon they end up in his bed.
What I really liked about this book was the easy going relationship these two had. Not a one night stand or a full insta-love but more of a slow and steady lets-see-where-this-leads-us kind of thing.
Ryker has commitment issues from his childhood and he doesn’t know any other way than the club way.
“I don’t think this is fixable. You are an outlaw biker. I am a librarian. We come from two very different worlds.”
Elizabeth on the other hand despite her good girl status has a mean backbone and even though there was a decent amount of drama she proved to be a good main character without any whining or tantrums when it came to all the MC way of life.
“You know, the opposite of love is indifference. Not hate.”
The one thing that kept me from rating it with five stars was the lack of MC action. Rival clubs, police, cartels and all that jazz are a major part of the MC books I’m used to reading and this one didn’t have that. But overall, it was a decent and funny read with likable characters that hooked me in from the first chapter and I didn’t put the book down till the last one.
