He never meant to hurt her.
Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.
Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.
Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.
The Flirty Review: Five Lip Bites
So we kinda start their story backward and then forward. It was hard to keep up with all of the flashbacks. I liked seeing them build their relationship. It was sweet when it needed to be sweet and sexy when it needed to be sexy. And downright frustrating a lot. Sometimes I just wanted Mel to just pack it up and start it new, but then Painter is kinda hard to forget. He kept on messing up and Mel kept on being stubborn. Case in point, the whole basis of their relationship. Push and pull. Mel and Painter just can't let go of each other even though they do spend time apart (jail) and see other people. It's like that stupid MC sucks you in and never lets you go. LOL!
Much like it does with it's readers.
Hello the body painting scene in Mel's house. Damn! That's enough to stop what you're doing and read this book.
There were times in this book that I wanted to shake Mel and Painter. They are both incredibly headstrong and stubborn. It got a little old. But it wasn't enough for me to give this book anything but five lip bites. I just love this genre and Wylde does such a great job of it. I'm excited for the next book to come out. Wylde never fails to disappoint.
“Sure,” I said, reaching for the remote. I didn’t have cable, but Ruger had set up some kind of box thingie for me so I could stream shit. “Whatcha in the mood for?”
“Not horror,” she said quickly, and I laughed again, remembering that first evening I’d spent with her at Pic’s house. She’d been so young and scared and vulnerable . . . I’d wanted to eat her up.
I still wanted to eat her.
“I can’t believe that you and Puck were supposed to be watching over me, and then you put in a slasher movie. That’s not how you make a girl feel safe.”
“No horror,” I agreed, although the thought of holding her for a couple hours while she was scared shitless appealed way more than it should. Watch it, asshole. “How about Star Wars?”
“You like Star Wars?”
I shrugged. “Everyone likes Star Wars. You know, I’m pretty damned sure Han Solo was a biker.”
She giggled. “You mean, like a space biker?”
“See, when you say it like that it sounds stupid.”
“I wanted to be Princess Leia. She’s badass,” she said, taking a deep drink of her beer. I watched as her lips wrapped around the neck, her throat swallowing. Oh fuck, that was good. She set the beer down on the coffee table with a clink, then let loose with the biggest burp I’d ever heard.
“Fucking hell,” I said, stunned. “I didn’t think girls could burp like that. Shit. Impressive, Mel. Very impressive.”
She grinned at me.
“We’re friends,” she told me. “And friends don’t need to worry about stuff like that. Let me guess—you’ve never had a female friend before?”
“Not really,” I admitted. “I’m think I’m a little scared.”
Scared and turned on, which was weird.
“You should be. I can do the whole alphabet.”
Damn. I kinda wanted to see that.
