Ride or Die by Terri E. Laine
Piper’s no stranger to motorcycle clubs. She ran from that life several years ago and has no desire to go back. Only the life came looking for her in the form of a gorgeous, massive man they call Ender.
Ender is the cleanup guy. The guy who fixes sh#t when it’s broken. When he’s sent to retrieve the sexy hothead, he gets more than he’s bargained for.
She’s no wallflower and during her years away, she’s learned new skills making her lethal. But Ender is just as good at his job and he’ll get her back home, hog-tied if he has to.
There’s only one problem. The more time he spends with her road tripping across the country, the more he wants her in his bed. The patch that marks her as taken, however, belongs to another, his best friend and brother. And a man’s got to live by a code, one he can’t break.
She hates him for what he represents and his cold demeanor. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want one night to see if the man behind the mask lives up to his reputation. For her survival, she’s determined to break him and his code. It might be her only means of escape. And if she’s honest, the sooner she can get away the better because her heart is getting lost in him too.
I am a big fan of MC stories and this doesn’t disappoint. Usually MC’s are really down and dirty, raw and nitty gritty, I loved that this story didn’t get too raw but stayed true to the roughness of the MC’s.
Piper is Bad A$$. She knows how to take care of herself as well as protect herself. She doesn’t take shit from anyone. I also loved the mystery surrounding her. You get hints her and there of why she is where she is and why she wants nothing to do with the MC.
Ender is the cleanup guy with the MC. Well, when things go bad, he ends them and cleans up the problem(s). He is great at his job and his brotherhood comes first and foremost. His latest mission is to bring Piper back to the Prez, kicking and screaming if he must.
So when Ender finds Piper and forces her to go back to the last place she wants to be, he wasn’t prepared for her feistiness, nor her fight. Let me just tell you, the power struggle is intense and very entertaining. She is off limits.
The questions were nonstop in my head and at every turn I was like, Holy Crap! I enjoyed their fighting, it makes for great foreplay and damn, their chemistry was off the charts! They made a great team when they were getting along and both characters surprised me at every turn. Underneath both of their hardened exteriors, they both had amazing hearts.
Terri E. Laine did a fantastic job with this story and I really hope there will be more to come! I highly recommend this read.
