J. C. Emery-Ride (Bayonet Scars #1)

Adults Romance 18+

Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden

Going from mob princess storyline to biker babe? Wasn't sure how this was going to work, but it did. The story seemed seamless in its transition, it made perfect sense. I really enjoyed this story, it could have been longer, and more developed. But all in all it worked. And Ryan and Alex are a great couple, at each other's throat one moment, then bouncing off the bed the next. The cast of characters surrounding them just add to the humor and storyline, and I really want to read Duke's story. And isn't the cover just HOT?!?
