Synopsis: Shade is everything Lily doesn't want in a man. He's rude, obnoxious and he's definitely not a cowboy. The tattooed enforcer for The Last Riders is a mystery Lily doesn't want to solve. He's too much for her to handle, especially with the nightmares from her past constantly threatening her sanity.
Lily is everything Shade wants in a woman. She's sweet, kind and submissive. When she discovers the truth about The Last Riders, it threatens to tear apart every relationship within the club. Her rebellion causes the predatory instincts to rise in the ex Navy SEAL sniper.
When The Last Riders are threatened by another motorcycle club just as determined to claim Lily, Shade is her only hope of surviving the approaching confrontation. Could their passion be Shade's downfall?
Review: I am such a sucker for MC books, and this series is definitely one that seems to be a little known gem. I have enjoyed watching the author's writing evolve and become stronger, as I feel like I catch fewer and fewer grammatical issues. The stories, themselves are so much more well thought out, as they end up being tied back together or having hidden aspects that come back even from the first book.
I have to admit that I have been looking forward to Shade and Lily's story from book one, Razer's Ride. Lily is Beth's adopted sister, and she has had some tragedy in her past, though no one really has any clue what that tragedy consisted of until this book. Shade, one of The Last Rider's wildest guys, has been in love with Lily for several years and has been patiently biding his time to make her his. She is perfect for him in many ways, but he definitely has his work cut out for him.
The underlying theme of The Last Riders, aside from their tight bond as an MC, is that they are kind of freaks when it comes to their sexuality. Shade is apparently one of the worst ones, too, which is so interesting to me, as Lily is pretty restrained and conservative. In each book, the women slowly seem to open up in this area, but, I felt, even from the beginning that it would really be out of character for Lily to open up, as her restraint is so much of who she is. The author stayed pretty true to this, and handled the situation well, in my opinion, but also had Shade pushing Lily's boundaries - which seemed true to his nature, as well. I really enjoyed this and can't wait for the next book. This book also mentions events from two other series by this author, so now I'm curious about those, as well.
