Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Chris “Shooter” Sullivan has returned to his home town of Rapid City, South Dakota to pick up the pieces of his life shattered by a roadside bomb in Iraq. He only wants to focus on holding what’s left of his old unit together, running his garage where he builds custom bikes and cars, and pretending that his murdered father’s motorcycle gang doesn’t exist.

Hayley Turner is a young woman with her own traumatic past. Fresh off the bus from Nowhere, USA, all she wants is a job and a place to live, until it’s time for her to leave again. She doesn’t want to make friends, or enemies, least of all the ex-Army Ranger who obviously doesn’t like her. She bristles under his watchful eye. He’s even got her convinced she’s bad news.

But circumstances force two people who don’t need anyone to need each other more and more. The more Chris gets to know Hayley, the harder it is to stay detached. And the more Hayley gets to know Chris, the more she realizes she’s been alone for so long she might never recover from it.

Having read loads of contemporary romances over the years, this one was not written to the usual boy meets girl, girl falls in love formula. Because of that, and the way the author unfolds the story with sensitivity and understanding of human frailty, I really enjoyed it. For an Alpha-male, Shooter has a soft side. Plus he's not a billionaire or the Laird of the Manor. He's a normal guy struggling to understand girl stuff. And he's fallable too, but that's what makes him real. His friends are an interesting bunch who I'd love to read more about, especially Tex.
Loved it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not my kind of book. 30 avril 2016

This is not what I usually read. I do not like the constant language. I think an author should be able to convey the idea without using vulgar words.
I also do not need pages of very descriptive sex,I skipped over that. I was interested in the story of the main character and wanted to find out what happened to her. Only reason for reading to the end. Probably will not read any more from this author.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Alpha Read 18 novembre 2013
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

***MILD SPOILERS INCLUDED

I really enjoyed this book. Let me start off by clarifying from the cover that this is not a biker book. Yes, they know a biker MC, but it really has nothing to do with the overall story at all.
Basically a Lieutenant from the Army moves to Rapid City and the guys from his group follow him. They've built a brotherhood between them that only war and death can create.
The Lieutenant, Chris "Shooter" Sullivan is very Alpha. The whole town loves him. Between the guys, they basically know everything about the town's goings-on and watch out for it.
Cue Hayley - just off the bus, running from a horrible past and doesn't plan on staying longer than it takes to build up some cash and get gone.
Because, if she stays too long, her past just might catch up to her.(*Side Note: There's not a lot of detail of this past, even when the book explains it, you're kind of left wondering why this guy from left field took on this obsession and what it had to do with her).
She gets a job at the local bar as a waitress. She uses the ruse that she's basically an on the run beaten woman from her man. She doesn't tell them that, she just gives herself bruises and uses the deer in headlights look when they ask her about it.
They don't know her past and the person she's running from is worse than that.
Right off the bat, Shooter is suspicious of Hayley. He knows she's lying and can tell she's conning the people around her...just not sure of what she's conning and the extent of it.
However, his Alpha possessiveness...combined with the strange attraction he has to her, has him demanding he move into his rent house (next door to his) for her safety. Hayley puts up a good fight, but agrees.
So the relationship begins to build. If I had to guess from memory, I would say that it's almost 50% where they actually start off the relationship from friends to lovers. The scenes are scorching hot!
It is a little cheesy with how much all the guys are just in love with Hayley and the extent of their protection/possessiveness they offer her...even from Shooter.
They all know she was most likely raped, but figure it was from a boyfriend who's still after her.
No one mentions it to Hayley, they just treat her like gold to help her feel secure.
So the story goes from there and it just keep's getting better.
HOWEVER - I'm a little miffed that when the ball got rolling and the bad guy finally caught up to Hayley, it wasn't even Shooter that got to save her. He was pretty much helpless. I mean, why have this whole book going on and on about how possessive he is, how much he loves her and that he's basically this bada** trained killer and then, his hands are tied when Hayley actually needs rescuing. HELLO! That's what we were waiting for!! For him to finally get to save what's "his".
So anywho, it was a good book. I loved all the guys in it and couldn't wait to get my hand's on their stories. I was happy when I found out Tex's book is already out. However, I didn't like it near as much as I liked Shooter.
So, I do recommend this read. It's a great possessive Alpha read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Contemporary romance , realistic atmospherics, smoking sex 15 avril 2016
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews . I often don't trust all the five-star reviewers as I'm not sure they're very discerning . However, this book had a lot of elements and a lot of tension as well as snappy dialogue. Really good dialogue . Period . Having said that I do want to warn that there are some scenes that may trigger flashbacks for those who are sensitive to violent scenes and there are situations where the hero makes mistakes . But I like that nobody's perfect in the story and the love that Chris and our heroine share is what makes them become better people . Also, there are some interesting philosophical discussions in this book that I felt were deeply meaningful . Life is complicated and gritty and difficult and I like that this was all part of the plot . Secondary characters were fun and interesting and of course we'll probably see more of them in the subsequent books . I hope they're not too perfect either.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hayley had too many personalities, the book had too many pages 22 octobre 2014
Par Lorraine Joy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
There are two primary issues with this book that negatively affected my rating: Inconsistencies, length and Hayley/Sarah (ok I lied, there were three problems but the first and the third are related).

In the book Hayley/Sarah has a back story that could be really intriguing and add depth to her character, the problem is that her reactions to her past trauma are just inexplicable. There is no evidence provided in the book that Hayley’s traveling from city to city was in any way justified by anything that happened to her. You’re reading the book expecting to see an explanation and it never comes. What is provided actually confuses us about Haley’s transience even more than it clarifies the issue. I don’t want to give too much away but the depiction of how Haley’s past meets her present still has me wondering if I missed something. You will find yourself asking: Wait, who? How? Where? Why? And then “no really, HOW did that happen?”

The other problem with Hayley is that she is depicted as a resilient, tough survivor and also a whimpering mess with the emotional maturity level of an 11 year old adolescent girl. I’m a woman, I get it. We can be walking contradictions but Hayley’s contradictions made no logical sense. There’s one scene involving a gun where she is hardcore while pushing another of the supporting characters to meet his potential. A few pages earlier, however, she is running from a house in tears over an issue with a dessert she baked. The whiplash from Hayley’s personality changes is extreme.

The relationship between Hayley and Chris was just ok. It was developed decently and over a whole lotta pages (no sex until roughly the 60% mark- argh!). The problem for me was that Hayley’s depiction made her seem more like Chris’ fragile little sister than his grown woman lover. The supporting characters reactions to Hayley did not help one bit. They all treated her like she was Chris’ baby sister. So when Chris’ starts giving baby girl the business, it’s hella awkward.

Lengthwise, this is a long book. That’s not a bad thing. What’s bad is the repetitive scenes of Hayley baking, waitressing and discussions with the male supporting characters and Chris, it was like 3 scenes played over and over. The scenes weren’t bad, you just don’t want to read them as many times as they are repeated, it’s…boring.

The final thing that mystified me about this book was an issue about one of the supporting characters. There was a woman in the book named Deanna. Deanna is 30 years old and there are frequent references to her being old and washed up. At one point Chris even tells her that her boobs will fall in a couple of years (which is totally untrue unless she planned to have multiple children in which case…). Deanna is the typical sleazebag female character but telling us repeatedly that a 30 year old woman is old and jealous of someone 26 is IRRITATING. 26 is not that much younger than 30. I’m 34 and have several friends who are 30 and they are all good looking women. I could be taking the whole assault on 30 year old women personally but it just seemed false and unnecessary to me. There are legitimate reasons for Deanna to be jealous of Hayley, age just seemed like a really stupid one to choose.

I got this book for free so I felt like I got my money’s worth. If it’s still free, I would recommend someone with some time to kill read it. I’m not sure how I would feel about this book if I paid for it so if it’s going to cost you money, proceed with caution.

This is a great story with fantastic characters. The author has created a realistic world packed with intriguing people. The backstories are interesting and serve the narrative well. One can only deduce that there will be follow up stories featuring each of the main characters.

This story, featuring Chris (the titular Shooter) and Hayley, is a great introduction to this universe. The story develops at a good pace and the reveals are done in an appropriately paced way that beat serves the story. The precipitating event is a tad forced (can't explain without spoilers) which makes it a bit unbelievable that Hayley would be taken in by it but not enough so that it spoiled my enjoyment of the book.

I will definitely be reading the rest of these books.
