Phoenix ‘Nix’ Knight thought pulling his club out of the illegal shit his Pops got them into was difficult.

Until he meets Kadence.

Kadence Turner has no business lusting over a student’s father, especially the president of the Knights Rebels MC. Nix is crass, obnoxious and dangerously sexy and for some reason, Kadence can’t seem to hate him for it. The bossy biker breaks down her defenses, but unlike the old Kadence, the woman she is today won’t give in without a fight.

The tension is undeniable, the attraction fierce. A man that wants what he wants and a woman that will fight him every step of the way.


I have a weakness for tattooed bikers. I don’t know what it is about them that make them irresistible. Never mind that they tend to be Neanderthals in and out of the bedroom. Never mind that they expect you to drop everything when they snap their fingers. But the more I sit here and think about why I find them irresistible, the more I realize it’s not so much as the men I’m attracted to, but the thrill of seeing them brought to their knees. Usually, by women.  

…I could try and tell myself that it’s a legitimate reason, but I know I’m lying. Truth is, I have this unhealthy addiction to men in leather chaps jackets.  And may have this sick fantasy of being ordered around. The thing is, I’m tired of cracking the whip. I deal with it enough at work. And my husband is a lamb. We rarely, rarely ever fight. So perhaps, that’s the underlying reason why I like reading books like these in the comfort of my darkened closet. 

Anyway.

I wish I can tell you what the story is about. Unfortunately, for an introduction to a series, the plot was relatively wrinkle free. These type of books are a dime a dozen. But once in a while, an author will attempt creativity by giving it their own spin. Therein lies the problem. They try so hard to make them less of a cliché by removing the drugs and crime elements of it.  But then again, I don’t know any bikers in real life. I’m fed with the information I read in Erotica books. They tell me bikers are baaaad to the bone. They deal with drugs, prostitution – or worse, human trafficking. The Knight Rebels are do-gooders.  Short of helping your grandma cross the road, they could be altar boys. They help abused women leave their violent homes. Their territory is drug free. However, as much as I admire them, the attempt at being different loses their MC street cred.  They’re not lame, per se. Just…tame.

Nix is every bit your stereotypical leader of the pack. You can’t pick him in a line up of every MC prez you’ve ever had the pleasure of reading in the past. Kadence is a…wait for it…school teacher, but far from prim and proper. Over all, this book is enjoyable enough. It doesn’t require that much thinking, or empathy. You just go with it. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
