Recovered from an abusive relationship, Juliette Moore is ready to live life on her own terms. Successful, intelligent, and slightly timid, she makes a pact with her best friends to seize the day. She gets more than she bargained in the tall, dark, and dangerous biker Shooter. Drawn to her purity and charm, Shooter, finds himself smitten before he knows what’s happening. With his claim firmly placed, he’s ready to go to war when she’s threatened by a madman from her past. Together they weather life’s storms and find common ground as they merge their two very different worlds.

4 Stars!

This story has all the bones of a great MC Romance but while I didn't hate it, I didn't love it either. The premise was good, a woman steps out of her comfort zone and finds that sometimes romance and love come from places you'd never expect and the bad boy sometimes ends up being the right one.

I enjoyed the fact that this is an interracial romance. after years of reading these books, I feel like we don't get a lot of this perspective and it's nice to see, especially since Shooter and Juliette seem to have great chemistry from the very first meeting in the bar and throughout the entire story.

I will say I wasn't a fan of the conflict with Juliette's ex. It was just a little too cliché and in the end, I didn't feel it was executed well. Honestly, there was enough of a story without adding that element into things. Watching Juliette navigate Shooter's world and the whole subculture would have provided plenty of material for a fun and interesting story.

At the end of the day, I would recommend this one to those looking for more of an MC Lite story. If it is the raw and gritty Biker book you're looking for this probably isn't it, however, it is a short easy read with some steamy scenes and a pretty hot Biker.

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 
After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household. 
She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
