Description: “Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms. Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”. Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live. Maybe.” (via Amazon.com)
- We learned several new MC terms “house mouse” and “sweet butt”, very educational.
- The novel gives you a very in-depth picture of the various aspects of MC culture, the good, i.e. the importance of family, and the bad, i.e. the illegal activities and anti-feminist view of women.
- Horse’s dedication to Marie, is one of the aspects we loved most about this novel. You really get a sense of how much he wanted her as his old lady, and cared about her happiness. We were both upset when she threw the cut he gave her back at him.
- We liked that Marie was loyal to her brother, despite the fact that he put her in danger, repeatedly.
- While it takes awhile for Marie to forgive and fall in love with Horse, we really enjoyed how in the end she protected him with her life.
- While we understand that it had to be done for her protection, we did not like how Horse basically purchased Marie.
- After being in an abusive relationship for most of her life Marie has a lot of self esteem issues. Horse’s encouragement of Marie to better herself, pursue her goals and go back to school was something we thought showed how much he valued her.
