IT TAKES A GOOD, STRONG WOMAN
Raised in a motorcycle gang, tough, beautiful Arianne Wilder has always dreamed of a normal life. But no sooner does she escape her father's domineering grasp than she wakes up to find herself in a rival gang's clubhouse—at the mercy of the dangerously sexy Jagger Knight.
TO TAME A MAN WHO'S HELL ON WHEELS.
The alpha leader of the notorious Sinner's Tribe, Jagger Knight is all muscle, all biker, and all man. But somewhere inside this hard, tattooed outlaw, Arianne senses a kindred spirit—and she can't ignore their tempestuous attraction. Can she beat him at his own game in a revved-up blaze of glory? Or will their passion spark a war that's the end of the road for them both?
Jagger is the president of the Sinner’s Tribe MC. The book starts off with his clubhouse being burned to the ground and guns being stolen off of their property. They are one-percenters which means that they don’t follow the civilian laws. When they catch a motorcyclist in the thick of the fire they are shocked to find out that it’s a woman. Jagger is attracted to her but won’t touch her, nor let anyone else touch her, until they find out what she wants. She has a Black Jacks MC patch on her vest so they knows he’s from a rival club – but did she set the fire?
Arianne aka Vexy is actually the Black Jacks MC president’s daughter. She grew up in the club and knows the rules. She also will do just about anything to get her and her brother out of town and out of her father’s life. They’ve been beaten and tossed around enough and she’s done. She wants a “normal” life and no one – not even the sexy Jagger – is going to stand in her way. That’s of course until she finds herself falling for the man and then she’s got to figure out if it’s better for her to stay or leave and what that will mean for her heart.
As MC books go this was toward the top of the list for me. I liked so much about this book it was ridiculous.
Arianne was a confused woman and she may have vacillated just a bit too much for my liking but really, she was in a crap position when it came to life. She’d had so little say in her life from the first moment and just wanted to be clear of the biker world forever. That being said she WAS a biker chick through and through. She loves her brother and knows that he’s a good person but their father’s influence ends up going too far and he falls…hard into the Black Jacks MC. It was heart breaking for me to read about Arianne and her brother as I felt so much for both of them.
Jagger – wow, what a guy. Yes, he’s the president of an MC but he was a good guy – for an outlaw. 🙂 He truly cared about his MC and took care of them as he should as best he could. He was a bit bowled over by Arianne and it swayed his judgment some, but hey, it’s a romance novel – he’s supposed to be bowled over, right?
The world that Castille created was tough, gritty, harsh and brutal but despite that I really enjoyed the story and can’t wait for the next one in the series.
