A sequel to Biker’s Librarian. (While this book can be read as a standalone, your enjoyment will be enhanced by reading Biker’s Librarian first.)
As secretary of the Lords of Mayhem, Moose cherishes his freedom. But when his best friend gets engaged and he takes on the role of best man, chemistry explodes between him and Joey, the maid of honor. He’s torn between his need to roam and her hot, sweet love. The choice becomes even harder when unexpected complications arise.
As the daughter of a reformed motorcycle club whore, Joey has always been fascinated by the lifestyle and wondered about her absent father. When the sparks fly between her and Moose, she finds herself drawn deeper into the world that nearly destroyed her mother. As Joey struggles to find her place in Mayhem and Moose’s heart, the past comes to call and threatens to destroy it all.
Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

Joey and Moose are fascinating characters. Joey is the cool chick, the good girl with secrets even she does not know she has. She fits into the lifestyle making no demands on Moose. It is all in the name of good fun, but that can only go on so long, especially when feelings start to get involved. Joey handles it like a grown woman though, if she were my friend I would have thrown my fist up in pride. She makes Moose doubt himself and what he wants, which is his freedom. Of course he is the man right, so he does not want commitment, he wants to live free, blah, blah, only his brothers at his back.

Well bulls*%t, dude falls for Joey and goes hard for her despite the problems she brings to his MC because of her past View Spoiler ». Moose is written extremely sexy, so why this is not a five star you ask.

There was more repetition than I wanted to read (personal opinion) I mean Moose, equaled commitment issue, got it and understood it. There is always something deep keeping the hero and heroine apart, but dude was kind of bitching about it too much.

On a side note Colt delivered on fantastic background characters and I would love if the series included a story on Joey’s mother and father, it is hard to find unique stories involving older characters who are realistic and hot, plus she has already wonderfully set the back-story up, no need to waste it.

Blood Witch was a good one, took me a while to figure out who the bad guy was, have to say I liked that, it was a pleasant surprise (no spoilers I promise). Lola was an outcast but she was not all angsty about it, (thank you) because I am so over that life. She got knocked down by her Ex, got back up, suffered some losses got back up, met a hottie, suffered some self doubt because of tha hottie, got back up. Blood Witch is not all dark we have comic relief in the form of some tag […]

Lady Minette knew at a young age her brothers bestfriend was the one for her. The Earl of Augustine however saw her as little Minette, his honorary baby sister. The thought of bedding her never crossed his mind until one night when everything changes and he goes from having a horrid fiance and wonderful mistress who understands his dark needs to engaged to the woman he considers his sister. Minette is willing and desires to cater to all August needs but one dismal to many may be one too much. You ever read a book then fall into the series matrix…well […]

Blaze new name fits, she is much better than the person she used to be. She does not date, although probably not what you would expect from a stripper in a MC controlled exotic dance club. Blaze just know with men comes trouble and sometimes, the I don’t date rule is better than any relief a man could potentially provide. Tug a prospect in the Ravage Motorcycle Club, knows what he wants and it is Blaze. He wants more than the casual hook up, or quick toss he can easily obtain from the club W (woooo, you thought I was […]

This was an interesting series, one reason I enjoy Taye is she provides another perspective, a different cultural view while still dishing the romance. This series packed some serious bedroom heat, I was surprised ( I never knew she got down like that). The dominant/submissive elements were an added bonus and I loved how she approached it. This was for the bedroom only, Ben or Benjamin when he is in dom mode knew he married a strong woman in Selina so he did not try that 24/7 ish with her.  The connection between Selina and Ben was so hot and that […]
