First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels.

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward--full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That's when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.
Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She's been terrified of him ever since, but she's even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She's living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there's only one man she can trust to go with her--the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it'll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

“What the f*ck happened out here?” Danielle asked, her arm suddenly around my shoulders. I immediately felt better. Danielle and I balanced each other out perfectly—she was batsh!t crazy and insanely optimistic. Make that dangerously, recklessly optimistic. As for me, I spent nearly all my time focused on staying sane and getting ahead. That didn’t leave much time for things like actually living my life.

We’d met each other our senior year of high school, when she’d offered to drive me back and forth to town in her shiny new Jeep Wrangler. This spared me from the horror of sharing a battered school bus with every hormonal teen living in the greater Callup metropolitan area. After a particularly harrowing ride home in her car one night (long story short, it took us six hours to travel thirty miles and by the time we pulled into town, we had matching tattoos of chipmunks wearing scarves) I decided it was my job to keep her from accidentally killing herself.

In return, she pushed me to do fun things, reminding me at least once a week that I was only twenty-one and perhaps the fate of the universe didn’t literally rest on whether or not I balanced my checkbook to the penny. Along the way, she taught me how to do smoky eye makeup, how not to freak out when a guy asked me to dance, and how to “borrow” music off the Internet. (When I pointed out that “borrowing” music was stealing, she agreed and started using iTunes for her downloads. To finance this, she “borrowed” her dad’s credit card.)

“Well, apparently me and Blake no longer work here,” I said, leaning my head against her. “I don’t know if you’re fired or not.”

“F*ck that,” Danielle declared. “Eva can kiss my a$$. If you’re out, I’m out.”

“You weren’t even part of it,” I protested.

“I don’t care. You’re a much better waitress than I am. If she fired you, no way I’d last there anyway. Let’s go get drunk!”

I swear, Joanna Wylde keeps getting better and better with each book. I really really enjoyed this one.

We got a sneak peek of Puck in Reaper's Stand and now we have his story with Becca. They had an interesting start, to say the least. Then fast forward 5 years later.

Becca had a horrible past. She was able to escape it because of Puck. Puck did not have an easy past himself, only knowing the biker life. And because they had an "interesting" start, they don't know how to move forward with whatever it is between them, that pull. That is until they really have no choice but to move it forward as everything else becomes moot.

Becca is quite the lil fighter despite want she went thru. She can be cuckoo crazy with some of her thoughts but she's a good person overall. She frustrated me with the direction that some of her thoughts took her but just when I'm about to get annoyed, she manages to redeem herself. And she did make me laugh, what a hoot!

Puck is one badass alpha biker dude through and through. He gets Becca... He may not know how to express himself all the time but thanks to his own POV, you can tell he's really trying. He can be scary but, oh, can he make your inside tingle hehe... I loved how he struggled with his actions and feelings without being effeminate. Duh, he's a biker after all! It was funny at times which made him more appealing.

Their characters are younger than some of Joanna's MCs but given what they've gone thru, to use Joanna's words liberally, they have lived 10 lifetimes in a short amount of time, so they're really mature for their age. I loved the dynamics between these 2. It's got spirit, it's passionate, it's funny. I loved their chemistry, both in and out of the bedroom. There's such an ease to their interaction, witty and all, and nothing felt strained.

I really enjoyed how the other MCs in the other books popped in and out of this one. I really enjoyed Becca's friends. Heck, I even enjoyed the "villains" in a I-loved-that-I-hated-them kinda' way. I loved the geek-y pop culture reference that provided levity when needed. I loved how the story flowed, from start to that crucial point near the end, just like what I've come to expect from a Joanna read, and all the way to the end, including that cute epilogue.

Did I say how much I really enjoyed this one?
