Ruthless (True Brothers MC, #1)
By Gillian Archer
After dinner with the most arrogant man in the world, Jessica Miller is shocked when her blind date tries to maul her in the parking lot. Enter “Zag”: the brooding, bruising alpha male who jumps off his motorcycle and teaches the jerk a lesson he won’t forget. After getting one taste of a bad boy who lives on the edge, Jessica’s hooked. Zag’s willing to give her the ride of her life. But she needs to wrap her arms around his powerful chest and hold on—tight.
Zag knows firsthand that the True Brothers MC isn’t for the faint of heart. He only intends to show beautiful, innocent Jessica a few cheap thrills to satisfy her curiosity. But the more he lets her in, the more Zag comes to depend on her gentle touch to help heal the wounds that he’s been denying for so long. Now, a rival gang has set its sights on Jessica, and Zag must step up once again. He just hopes he can go the distance to protect the woman he loves.
Review to come. It's 2 am and I am going to sleep
Ok I am awake enough to write my review! As you can see I stayed up half the night to finish! I couldn't put it down. Very interesting read! The two characters have instant attraction and nothing like a female lead that takes what she wants. I really like this style because women are always considered sluts if they want sex and take it. Not the case needs are for everyone and we should be called studs just like men are who take what they want. Ok off soap box.
I liked Zag. He was very well developed and we got a great shot of his terrible childhood and why he is who he is. I also liked how he reached out to others to help them along as others helped him. He was a great lover. He did have faults, because he really couldn't deal with his feelings for Jessica at times. Other times he was too far into his head. He wasn't a "young" guy which made him more mature with his actions.
Jessica grew on me. She never gave off that I am better then you vibe, which the heroine sometimes has in these MC books. She was a tad flim-flammy about standing up for herself at first, but Zag brought out the best in her. Jessica always seemed to accept Zag, even when she was scared and if she overreacted she pulled back and adjusted. She always stood up for Zag. I thought her family's reactions were kinda not normal at the end, but it just showed how Jess reflected how she was raised.
No real hardcore MC stuff, so if you are looking for that it is not there. The family aspect and the we protect what is ours is there. There are no trashy females trying to sleep with the hero and thank goodness no cat fighting and cheating. Just a good all around book. I enjoyed it and hope you do too. I want to read the next one for sure!
