If it’s not broke don’t fix it. That was Cash’s motto in life, and his life was perfect. He was living the life of the lieutenant of The Last Riders, and had women at his beck and call. The only thing he saw himself settling down with in the future was a twelve pack; certainly not Rachel Porter, who was on his short no fuck list. Hell, she wasn’t even his type—her tits were too small, and her mean mouth could shrivel a man’s dick. How was he supposed to know she was special and worth putting up with those weed-producing hillbillies? Or was she?
Rachel had lived her whole life watching Cash break one woman’s heart after another. He was everything she shouldn’t want; a bad boy biker with enough sex appeal to make any woman want a night in his bed. Even her. Heck, he wasn’t even her type—he didn’t know when to keep his mouth shut, and he lived in a sex club. How was she supposed to know that he was special and worth putting up with the biker wars and biker bitches? Or was he?
Review by Amanda
This is definitely my surprise good read of the month! I loved it – from start to finish. I also loved that for the first time in quite a while, it was a meaty book with a lot to sink your teeth into.
This is the story of Cash and Rachel. Growing up as neighbours in the small town of Treepoint, Rachel has always been more than a little in love with Cash. However, all her life, she has been sheltered by 3 domineering and freakishly smothering older brothers. No man will ever be good enough to date Rachel and anyone that even tries is soon run off under threat of violence.
The history between Cash and Rachel’s families is full of angst, drama and a lot of heartache, so for most of her life Rachel has been warned to stay away from the hellion that is Cash. He has a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude when it comes to women. He is happy for them to share his bed, but cannot offer a long term commitment outside of the bedroom.
Rachel watches Cash from a distance and one night out with a drunken and disorderly friend leads to a rendezvous between Cash and herself. While the experience is everything she had ever dreamed of, she does not want to be a notch on Cash’s bedpost. She quickly sets to making sure she avoids him at all costs. Cash is slightly relieved but also more than a bit confused.
A run in between Cash and her overbearing brothers leads to the whole town finding out that Cash took Rachel’s virtue. After this humiliation, Rachel flees town and appears to be untraceable. A tragic accident has her returning to town – she moves in with Cash’s Aunt, and sets about finding herself, apart from her brothers, as her own person.
Cash sets about to win her over, and the only way Rachel will agree to date him is if he gets the consent of her brothers. Thinking this is likely never to happen because of the never ending feud between them, Rachel promises him the unthinkable. Amazingly, her brother’s agree to Cash dating Rachel. She is furious and does her best to ensure it doesn’t happen.
However, Cash has his eye on the prize and the prize is Rachel.
This book is getting 4.5 stars from me. I loved everything about it. The relationship between Cash and Rachel was hot, and some of the scenes left me laughing out loud.
“I think you’re just easy to please” she said. “No, I’m not.” He lifted her onto the bed beside him. “I’m hard to please and you’re going to spend the whole night doing it until you get it perfect.” “I’m a quick learner” Rachel teasingly boasted.
In order to get Rachel to stay with him, Cash has a master plan of trying to get her “knocked up”. He comes up with the most ridiculous notions, that will have you laughing out loud!
“You can’t get pregnant if you f*ck in the water”
“You can’t get pregnant unless you’re on your back”
“Don’t worry you won’t get pregnant I’ll use the rhythm method”
“Don’t worry you can’t get pregnant standing up”
Without giving away too much, I swooned like a teenage girl when Cash went to get his new motorcycle and insisted that Rachel goes with. What happens when they go and see it made me just about melt into a puddle!
This is another book with a seriously strong heroine that takes no nonsense, she is tough as nails, and calls it as she sees it. Although she has loved Cash for as long as she can remember, she doesn’t tolerate his nonsense, and puts him in his place on more than one occasion.
With so many MC books out there, it is often hard for authors to set themselves apart, Jamie Begley does this with sublime ease in this book. I cannot wait for the next instalment.
About Jamie Begley
"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 four series of books- The Last Riders, The Dark Souls, The VIP Room, and Biker Bitches series.
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. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be this summer. Right now I am typing away on my next story and looking forward to traveling this summer!"
