review || LUCKY'S CHOICE { blog tour }

Young Ink Press | July 27, 2015 | Romantic Suspense-MC
The Last Riders, book 7



Life dealt him a dead man’s hand.
Lucky had always led a life of service. Always put his life on the line for someone else, managing to survive by pure luck and skill. After bringing an end to a multi-state drug ring, he was finally able to live the life he had wanted as a Last Rider…
A good man would walk away and not touch the curvy woman who had been tugging on his heartstrings. Lucky wasn’t a good man. Therefore, the bad-ass biker in him had a choice: once again become the man he had pretended to be and stake his claim, or take the devil’s highway.

Some girls had all the luck.
Willa wasn’t one of them. All she wanted to do was give a home to the children she had made orphans. Instead, she found herself needing help from the man who had left the pulpit behind to embrace a life of sin.

Painfully shy and withdrawn she wanted a quiet life, a simple man, and well-behaved children. The last thing she had ever expected was for Lucky to want her size twenty body and show her a passion that would lead her straight to hell.

This work of fiction is intended for mature audiences only. All sexually active characters portrayed in this ebook are eighteen years of age or older. Please do not buy if strong sexual situations, multiple partners, violence, drugs, domestic discipline, BBW, and explicit language offends you.

"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

...I keep seeing all these people with these awesome reviews that are, you know... three paragraphs long... and I really want to be that person. My reviews tend to go with reflection and whatnot, and while I follow a few reviewers of that sort, I know that as a person looking at reviews... If I don't have time for a novel of a review, I'm not going to bother reading it. So... I'm going to try to slim this down (I know, I know, I've said this before).

This was my first THE LAST RIDERS title, and -- while it's not something I often say -- I have to confess it's likely in the reader's best interest to read these books in order. I was able to understand the characters and the relationships, sure, but I was a little confused in the club's structure and hierarchy at parts. There were hints toward backstory, just grazings, that I'm sure the series' reader would understand.

Now that that's out of the way...

My slight moments of confusion aside? I enjoyed this book! I'm not sure why, but lately I've really been digging the MC books, and this one was really no different. Lucky was a hardass, sure, but he also was extremely certain of his spot in the church. While he was no longer doing pastor work as he wasn't undercover anymore, that part of his life called to him. His eye has been drawn to Willa since he saw her first at a sermon, but she puts a whole new meaning to "light" to his dark and he does his best to push her away -- he's rude, he embarrasses her, and he's sleeping with anyone and everyone. If he were to get married, he plans on getting married to a 'slut' (his words) so she's ok when he's gone.

Willa, again, was Lucky's light. There were many times she annoyed me -- pumping out bible verses when Lucky would try to tell her reasons why he was no good and finding to good in people who did not deserve her faith and trust, to name two. But when the girl wanted something bad enough, she put her foot down and hells bells, watch out -- it was a side of Willa no one knew what to do with but watch, eyes open, fascinated.

I enjoyed Lucky most when he decided Willa was his, that she always was, and would always be, his. He fought for her trust and he fought for her. He brought out a side of Willa that the meek, shy woman would have never known was in her.

Of the previous couples, I really liked Lily and Shade; I liked the friendship Lily gave and I loved the brotherhood Shade wrapped around everyone. I have (shh, forgot it was there) FAT LOUISE on my TBR list -- I did a promo for it when it came out -- and I'm pretty interested in those tough-as-nails ladies, too, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye out on this LAST RIDERS crew.
