Release Date: January 28, 2014
All Jade ever wants is an intelligent, well-mannered, and highly educated man like her daddy. One who has stellar career prospects as he climbs the corporate ladder to success. A good provider who will give her a stable life and a gorgeous house in the right neighborhood. A charmed life. Everything orderly and well balanced. Her perfect match. Isn’t that what every woman wants? What she doesn’t want is a smartass, cocky, rough-around-the-edges biker. One who has tattoos and piercings, and looks like a sex god. One who is demanding and controlling. The ultimate alpha male who storms into her life and shakes her to the core. Jade never saw it coming. Ryder is the one man she can’t resist. He shows her what she really needs. Him.
All Ryder wants is inner peace. Freedom from the hatred churning in his gut. Since his mother deserted him, his life has turned to sh*t. He’s killed a man, lost his brother and fought for his survival. All before turning twelve. Saved by Razor and Cobra, sons of the Scorpions, he owes his life and allegiance to them. The Scorpion MC is his only family. One he will serve and protect till his dying breath. What he doesn’t need in his life is a smart mouthed woman who thinks she’s better than him. One who pushes every one of his buttons. One who challenges him to want to be more than a drifter. One who makes him question everything he’s ever known. Ryder never saw it coming. He can’t get Jade out of his head. She shows him what he really wants. Her.

I am going to keep this review short and succinct for a novella that packs a big punch. I have never read a book that captured my attention so quickly from the very first page. The characters are infectious and the writing is brilliant from the very beginning.
Scorpions MC Prequel: RYDER introduces us to the beautiful and intelligent Jade and the gritty, raw and highly emotional story we follow through the gorgeous Ryder Knox.
Jade is such a fantastic heroine. She is a feisty young woman who exudes strength, intelligence and she is full of sarcasm! She is also a young woman that complements the gorgeous Ryder Knox so beautifully in a perfect story that amalgamates lust, passion and the coming together of two very different individuals, from two completely different worlds.
Ryder. Where do I possibly begin? The instant you are introduced to this decadently sexy, biker bad boy, you will fall in love with his darkly handsome charm. He is the epitome of a sexy, dirty taking male, yet beneath that rough exterior lies a man who is tormented by the lament and tragedy of his past.
This is a captivating novella that explores a strong heroine and the gritty heartbreaking events that have shaped a beautifully hardened biker into the man he now is.
This prequel is just fantastic and will definitely leave you feeling bereft as we wait for the full length novel Scorpions MC: Two Worlds Colliding, releasing in March.
5 Fantastic STARS
Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book – always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else’s eyes.
Besides reading, her favorite ‘thing’ is traveling – she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby – Scrapbooking – keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.
Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness – arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).
