Summary: I'm a biker, and I'm a woman, who was raised by my biker family the Sacred Sinners.
Growing up an MC brat, I've known nothing but leather, booze, club whores, comradery, and bikes, my entire life.
My name is Eva "Bink" Cummings, and this is my story.
How at the ripe old age of thirty, with no husband, no kids, and being a part of a motorcycle club. Things aren't always what they appear to be. I've found out the hard way, that your life, in an instant, can be flipped upside down. And the people you know and love aren't always what they seem.
Flirty Review: Three Lip Bites
Okay, if mundane detail is not your thing, don't start this book. The first half of the book was riddled with so much telling and mundane info that I went crossed eyed at points. I can get behind a little bit of telling to have the reader up to speed on the backstory, but it was way too heavy in Bink's story. I laughed out loud when Bink actually gave the secret recipe to her cookies. IN RECIPE FORM, mind you. Is this a cook book? Do we really care? Are readers going to jump up and bake these fantastic cookies? Nope. Okay, so that was the issue numero uno for me to start.
Second issue: Big Dick going after Bink. So I know the author has to be aware some readers are squeaked out by Big Dick wanting to have sexy time with Bink considering Big pretty much raised her. And I mean, like a father, from a very little girl on up. As the story starts, we don't really get into their backstory too much. It's touched on, we know he's been in her life for a long time, but not to the extent of some of the fatherly things he did in place of her other father. I could understand the attraction up until that point, but when we delve more into their complicated past together, I was wondering why she was even seeing this man as anything but a father figure.
Third issue: Where was the conflict? So there is this bad thing going on with a cartel or drugs dudes over whatever, and the whole compound the MC is housed in is on lockdown. But we don't see the conflict. At ALL! We see Big's former flame having a lover's fight with Big and Bink goes ballistic. I would have loved to see more conflict, less about this crazy chick and see some real tension. Btw, if Bink's father is VP of the MC, where in the heck is he all this time? I get he was out of town, but he's still her dad. Not to mention her brother is a Brother too. We see text messages. Crickets.
Okay, I probably seem like I'm ragging on this book, but it was a train wreck: I couldn't look away. It drew me in and I inhaled the whole thing. Given all the flaws I think there are, I still really loved the book. I like Bink and her no nonsense attitude. I like Big and his alpha male character. I liked some of the other side players too. And what the author created at the end was a very real want for the reader to come to the second book. I need to read that book! AHHHH!!
This MC book was like crack. I'm addicted.
