First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Timesbestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels
Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.
Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.
Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...
Come on! Did you have ANY doubt that this wouldn’t be FUCKING amazing!? Joanna Wylde’s books always get me riled up! GET. PSYCHED. UP. Silver Bastard will knock you on your ass!
Whenever I’m asked to recommend a good MC romance, Joanna Wylde is the first name that pops in into my head. She not only gives us extremely HOT sex scenes, and super sexy, alpha males. She gives us an amazing story. It’s always so raw, gritty, and emotional, and it’s hard not to instantly connect with each of the characters that she creates. Ms. Wylde is one of a kind with her writing. She is in a league of her own, and never disappoints. If I’m looking for a sexy, angst filled, keep me on my toes romance, I can always refer back to one of her stories.
Puck and Becca’s story is one for the books. Their first encounter is anything but romantic, but the story that follows is pure beauty. Becca knows this life, a life in the MC. She is no stranger to these hard, controlling men. The night she meets Puck, she is taken back by the tenderness that is buried below this rock of a man. She is scared, and yet no man has ever reached her like he had. Puck thinks he destroyed her long ago, when in fact, he was her savior. Puck can only stay away for so long, until his possessive instincts comes through. He may have hurt her in the past, but he will protect her for the rest of her life.
Some readers will cringe at Puck’s approach to Becca and hell, to life in general. But I saw the gentle man below all that grit. This is the type of man that would kill or be killed for you. This passion that Joanna Wylde brings out in these characters is incredible and palpable. I loved every second of SILVER BASTARD. This series will certainly become an addiction, just like the Reaper’s series before it. I will be counting down the days until I can get my hands on another Silver Valley book. Each addition to this series is sure to be epic, of that, I have no doubt.
Ignoring him, I settled back on my stool and surveyed the room. We sat in Becca’s section, and what I saw wasn’t making me happy. I knew she was a good waitress, but she’d just started here and it showed. Not only had she fucked up several orders, she didn’t quite seem to get the rhythm of the bar. That wasn’t my problem, though.
My problem was that despite these fuckups, nobody seemed to mind. I had a nasty suspicion this was due to her perky tits, friendly smile, and tight little ass that seriously just needed a bite taken right out of it.
She really, really needed to get a new job—every man in the place wanted her. Including me. Especially me. I hated them. All of them. I shifted uncomfortably, because just like every time I shared a room with her, my pants had gotten tight.
Torture. Becca was just so fucking fine on every level, and not just her looks. There was something about the way she carried herself . . . I couldn’t put my finger on it. Like she was dancing through life to some song nobody else could hear. Never met another woman like her—she wasn’t just sexy, she was a survivor and I admired that
She’d grown up so much since the first time I’d met her. Bigger boobs, a nice fullness to her ass that was nowhere close to fat but would be perfect to hold tight while I fucked her. Her lips had plumped, too, and over the years she’d gained a sparkle in her eyes that turned her from pretty to 100 percent spectacular.
Not to mention how she’d tasted.
Nearly blew in my pants when I’d taken that mouth. Just the memory got me hard. Make that harder. Fucking basket case.
When I’d pulled up to find her sitting outside with Collins, a thousand murder scenarios ran through my mind. And yeah, I know I covered that already, but if anything ever deserved empha- sis, this was it. Collins needed to die. I didn’t care how nice he was. After that I’d throw Becca on the back of my bike and make a run for the hills . . .
Okay, so there were a few problems with the plan, the top one being she hated me. Or she should—I’d certainly given her cause. Boonie nudged me.
“Did I mention you’re pathetic? You want her, take her. Other- wise let it go because you’re an embarrassment to all men in general and to the Silver Bastards in particular.”
