The Rebel vs. The Princess

Complete opposites who share the same burning passion!

Jaxon Brady of the Hard Riders MC has sworn to protect Evie Kent from a rival gang. His hard muscles and black leather motorcycle boots are a sharp contrast to the girlie dresses Evie wears for her successful party-planning business. Their instant attraction is magnetic, and their lust keeps them glued to each other’s side…but is it a dangerous distraction?

I have to be more cautious. From the rising volume of the squeals emanating from the backyard, cake consumption has concluded and the party will be wrapping up as the sugar highs hit, the early departers fleeing past my RV parked out front. Spotting the princess in an R-rated embrace with a biker would be bad for my business. You can’t be a dirty girl and host children’s birthday parties for a living. The moms will kill you. Fortunately, the moms aren’t mind readers. I’m only a party-perfect princess on the outside. Riding anywhere with Rev would be career suicide.
My bad voice promptly weighs in. But only if you get caught.
“I don’t do bikers.”
Something flashes across Rev’s face. “You don’t get hurt on my watch. I promise.”
“You’re not an ax murderer?”
He reaches into his pocket and pulls out the wallet attached to his belt by a silver chain. Silently, he flips it open and holds it out so I can read his driver’s license. There’s a military ID underneath it, too, the kind of card that gets you into Nellis Air Force Base.
“Your name isn’t Rev.” According to the State of Nevada’s laminated plastic, he’s one Jaxon Brady.
“Road name,” he says tersely.
I examine the license again. He’s also turning thirty-three in four weeks. I bet he won’t be booking a celebratory princess party.
“Wow.” I hand back his wallet. “Former navy?”
He nods, as if it’s no big deal. “SEAL. You’d be safe with me.”
He’s not big on talking. Or negotiating, asking, or sweet-talking. I’ve always trusted my instincts, though, and right now they’re on board with Rev Brady. Completely, totally, 100 percent in favor of getting on this man’s bike and riding off with him. Somewhere. Wherever he wants to go. He’s big and strong and tempting. He’s fought for our country and kept everyone safe.

How bad can he be?
The little voice in my head pipes right up. How bad do you want him to be?
That voice needs a gag.
“Think about it,” he says and then he turns and saunters toward his bike. I stand there, watching his ass the whole way, and wondering why I don’t mind his attitude. He’s scary as shit. He’s not Mr. White Picket Fence and he’s not promising happily ever after, but the man has a fantastic butt and I’m lonely. That’s all it is. I need to get out more, need to make a point of seeing someone.
Someone else.
Anyone else. There are absolutely, positively no bikers anywhere in my future.

I received Ruled in return for an honest review from the publisher. 

Evie is just trying to make a better life for herself and her baby brother it just happens to be pink princess parties that are in her future. She may have a thing for bad boys but she's not going to act on she wants a good nice guy. That is till Rev shows up at one of her parties hunting for her brother who causing trouble in his territory. Now he's all that Evie can think of and she's not the only one feeling that way. Rev feels like he has to protect Evie but at what cost? 

I like Evie she's trying to make a better life after having a rough childhood it just happens to be creating princess parties for little kids. Which I think is such a great way to spend her day's wearing dresses and having princess parties. I honestly wasn't sure about Rev as I've not read many MC books before but his club isn't about running drugs it's about taking care of their neighborhood, keeping things clean. Most of them are former military so I found an instant connection. 

I wasn't sure what to expect as the whole MC is a new genre to me but I was excited to check it out. Who doesn't love the idea of a princess and a rebel from two different worlds finding a happy ever after together. Right away it was instant chemistry for the pair even if she may have wanted to avoid it as he's not the nice guy she was looking for. I love the idea that while they are a MC group they aren't about the traditional kind I expected which I found refreshing. I like the characters they are easy to connect with you have to just love Evie she's adorable. This is my first book by the author but I'm hooked, her writing style was smooth and the story just flowed from start to finish. The Dare novels are perfect to read in one sitting quick fast-paced and steamy.
