She's a biker chick with an edge.
Daughter of an MC President, Trix Slade is used to living on the wild side, but nothing prepares her for being kidnapped by the Grim Bastards MC. Hell bent on getting back home, Trix will do anything to get away from her captors—anything. There’s only one problem. Boz is as sexy as he is wild—a tempting combination for a woman like Trix.
He's a bastard with a soul.
The Bastards’ president, Boz Creed, wants to bring Trix’s father down and knows the best way to get to him is by using his precious daughter. Determined to get the revenge he seeks, Boz is willing to do anything to get what he wants—anything. There’s only one problem. Trix is as sexy as she is stubborn—a deadly combination for a man like Boz.

Can love between two rival clubs survive without someone taking the ultimate fall?

   So... let's start with the cover on this one. Um, hello? Can you say yummy? I seriously love the cover on this one. It's absolutely perfect, a lot of book covers, especially romances, are gaudy, cluttered, or not very representative of the actual story. This one is none of those. The model's not quite what I pictured when I thought of Boz, but he's pretty close and I adore the splash of color on the otherwise black and white image.

   MC (motorcycle club, for the uninitiated) Romances are very hit or miss for me--there's no middle ground. The last ones I tried to read were very miss, so I'm ecstatic that this one was a hit! It was an almost perfect balance of love life meets club life. I especially like that they don't try to romanticize that lifestyle. A lot of authors do and that completely baffles me. I know people who are part of that lifestyle, hell, I dated the son of one of them, and there's nothing romantic about it. So, they get tons of points for that.

  The authors did a phenomenal job jumping back and forth from Boz's to Trix's points of view. Jumping p.o.v. can feel really disjointed and confusing, but they made it flow from one to the other really well. As characters, I love them both. I'm pretty sure Trix just made my list of all-time favorite female leads. And it's a very short list, not just any female character meets my expectations. Boz was everything I expect from my alpha males without all of the "I'm God's gift to women" cockiness that I can't stand. And oh my goodness, some of the things that come out of his mouth are absolutely panty melting!

   Definitely an amazing book from a couple of amazing authors. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Filthy Bastard releasing next month!
