My name is Zoe Delacourte. I thought I was going to build my future on the backs of Jax Traeger and Hunter Ericksen — bad boys from the wrong side of the tracks, running the notorious motorcycle club, the Kings of Asphalt — in my mind, the story had practically written itself. I was so naive. Little did I know they were going to change everything I ever knew about myself.
They don’t see a fat girl or a girl who might be pretty if only she’d lose some weight. No, from the moment I walked into their club, they saw a hot, sexy woman with curves for days — and they couldn’t wait to get their hands on me.
Review: Author Alexx Andria has dipped her toes into the motorcycle club water with her new release, Kings of Asphalt. While it may have started out as a short story, Alexx knew that her readers would be begging for a more developed story line featuring two hot men and a rather clueless, yet curvy, reporter. The final result was a solid foundation for a new series.
Kings of Asphalt features a naïve reporter who is determined to do whatever it takes to get a story featuring the two motorcycle club bad boys, but Zoe never imagined that her sleuthing skills could get her into so much trouble. Not only does she find herself completely captivated by the two club leaders, but she puts herself in the crosshairs of someone who wants to keep the story under wraps.
One of Alexx Andria’s trademarks is the depiction of a strong female character with an incredible sense of humor. Zoe certainly meets that requirement. Her one-liners will generate some chuckles, particularly when it comes to her inner monologue. As for biker boys Jax and Hunter, they crank up the heat factor when they decide to teach Zoe a lesson.
Although all the ingredients are present, I found this to be a “softer” MC romance without all the grit and angst typically found within this sub-genre. However, there is no doubt that the erotic element is alive and kicking in this book.
It will be interesting to see what the author does in the next installment. One thing is certain; there will be plenty of naughtiness if it comes from Alexx Andria.
