New York Times bestselling author Katie Ashley revs up the danger and sexual tension in her brand-new Vicious Cycle romance series.
Deacon Malloy’s life is dedicated to the Hell’s Raiders motorcycle club. Tough, hard, and fast with his fists, he serves the group as sergeant at arms. But his devil-may-care approach to life is thrown for a loop when the five-year-old daughter he never knew existed lands on the club steps.
Alexandra Evans is devoted to all her students—but there’s always been something about Willow Malloy that tugs at her heart. There’s an aura of sadness about her, a girl in need of all the love Alexandra can give. When Willow stops coming to school, Alexandra’s search leads to a clubhouse full of bikers…and a father hell-bent on keeping his daughter always within sight.
The moment Deacon sees Alexandra, he has to have her in his bed—and he’s never met a woman yet who couldn’t be persuaded. No matter how attracted she is to Deacon, Alexandra refuses to be just another conquest. But it’s Deacon himself who could be seduced—into a brighter future for himself, his daughter, and the woman he’s falling for against all odds.
“While she was so fucking wrong for me, she was also so fucking right.”
Katie Ashley rocked the HELL out of this new exciting, sexy, and action packed series! With a hero you will LOVE to hate and heroine who knocks him down a peg or two, you will be mesmerized on how easy it is to be transported to this fantastic world that Ms. Ashley created. I absolutely LOVE her style of writing and I’m in love with the fact that she pulls emotion after emotion out of me with every page. I can’t WAIT for you all to devour this book! Be prepared, VICIOUS CYCLE is a one-nighter. I doubt you will be able to put it down.
With this being my first read from Ms. Ashley, (I know! I know! *GASP*) I wasn’t sure what to expect. I just knew that she was a very well-known author, and I have received quite a bit of recommendations from some followers. I’m a HUGE fan of MC Romances, so I was excited when I read the blurb for Vicious Cycle. All I can say is, what a GREAT way to get introduced to this author’s style. I loved it! Fast-paced, emotion filled, and extremely steamy, I found myself captivated with every turn of the page. This read is certainly not for the faint of heart, but you kind of know that when you read MC romances, in my opinion. The grittier the better for me. I love it when a woman can pull the softness out of such a hard man. It just melts my heart. I’m kinda diggin’ the Malloy family, and I’m excited for what is to come with the rest of the series.
It was an exhilarating ride despite the gritty nature of the book. There were parts that made you flinch, but then you hide parts that made your heart go pitter-patter. It was a great mixture of both hard and soft, and complimented very well. These characters got to me from the very beginning. Throughout the story they were bringing out parts of each other that they never knew existed. Deacon and Alexandra were so different, yet so similar. They were each other’s worst nightmare, and yet they ended up being one another’s salvation. What a great story that just hits you right in the heart. Very well done! I’m excited for the future of this series.
