When trouble rides into town, what girl can resist the ultimate bad boy?

Handling men isn’t an issue for me. I’m not a girly-girl and my best friends are the machines I spend my days fixing, tweaking and servicing. So when the Wild Angels roll onto my forecourt and need my help, I’m happy to be of assistance.

But I’ve always been a magnet for trouble and when the leader of the pack, Gid, questions my ability, I can’t help the sassy backchat. Seems it doesn’t bother him too much and before I know it, I’m climbing onto his beast and hanging on for the ride.

Bad ass guys like him don’t come without baggage, though, and it seems he wants to get rid of mine. Who am I to complain when it means revenge is hot, his body is hotter and we leave a trail of burning rubber as we head into the sunset? Biker girl, me? I guess it’s in the blood.

 

Review:  Burning Rubber is not your average romance. I knew I would love it from the first page when I met Sandra. The sassy female mechanic had a strong loyalty to family and a tough attitude. A woman after my own heart! She loved her job, and never let the fact that she was a woman in a predominately male career field slow her down in any way. When members of the Wild Angels M.C roll into town looking for a mechanic to fix one of their bikes, she doesn’t hesitate to let them know she’s their only choice.

Her banter, wit, and strength made for entertaining interaction between her and the male lead, Gideon aka Gid. An unlikely respect forms between Sandra and Gideon, who respects her boldness and skilled brain. What attracted him to her was her brains and personality. To me, that was incredibly sexy and rare in an M.C. book. It made this book stand out even more.

Gid was still a bit of an enigma at the closing of the book. It left me wanting more in the best possible way. Sexy, stern, and dangerous, he has a soft side he shows Sandra. Ms. Harlem has an amazing tact for keeping him authentic, but not overly alpha. The president of Wild Angels, Gid is a man used to being in control, and rough around the edges attitude, which in my mind made him the perfect pairing for the strong willed Sandra.

The two have an exciting journey together that kept me pages turning. I recommend this for readers who love alpha males and strong females.
