USA Today and International bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

She has a secret she’s desperate to keep…

With danger looming on the horizon, former FBI agent turned bunny, Bambi Lane, isn’t taking any chances. Taking refuge in a nearby town, she builds a new and comfortable life under the radar, but when trouble comes knocking on her door, she finds that the one thing she’s worked so hard to protect is about to be exposed.

He has a desire that won’t be denied.

Curtis “Taco” Nash, the Spartan’s road captain, has always marched to the beat of his own drum, his only loyalty to that of his brothers and the club. Only one person has ever successfully clawed their way under Curtis Nash’s skin, and when she disappeared from his life without so much as a goodbye, he wrote her off—at least, he tried to. One mention of the one who got away, and he’s consumed with desire—and anger. He wants answers. He wants her. He’s about to get a lot more than he bargained for.

As the war between the cartel and the Spartans heats up, Taco has to decide if he’s going to protect his brothers or the new life that’s waiting for him. When everything hangs in the balance, one thing is clear: No one is safe. Will Bambi and Taco be able to come together and find the strength to take a leap of faith before time runs out?


After an unexpected discovery, and the Spartans showing her the door Bambi Lane decides it's time to leave town, it's time for a quieter, safer life. She moves to a neighboring town, finds a job and a decent home and begins her life reboot... then she runs into her foes, and it brings trouble right back to her door. Trouble in the form of a gorgeous biker who makes her heart skip a beat, and he turns her new carefully planned world upside down. She has tried to avoid this moment for over a year now, and things were going fine, until Curtis Nash wandered back into her world, and started to making demands... ones that she isn't so sure she is willing to abide by!

For the last year Curtis "Taco" Nash has been moping around, riddled with confusion, and wondering what he did that was so wrong that she had to up and leave without so much as a goodbye. He thought they were onto something, a forever kind of something, and then she just left. He was certain she was it for him, but apparently she didn't feel quite the same... or he wouldn't be sitting here all alone, nursing a broken heart. Then his buddies mention running into her in a neighboring town and he decides it's time for some answers, so he shows up on her doorstep, and starts with the questions, and soon gets answers he wasn't prepared for...or quite sure how to deal with!

Brash is gripping, sexy and crafty little tale that will have teetering on the edge of your seat the whole way through!! In this latest offering from the Spartan Riders series, Ms. Valentine gives us a more in depth look at Curtis "Taco" Nash and the woman who managed to steal his heart... and all I can say is WOW what a read! I had my reservations about this one, mainly because of my previous knowledge about the heroine, but shortly after getting a second look at this character I started to see that she was painted in an unfair light before, and she was after all a good woman deserving of true love. She really redeemed herself in my eyes, and showed me that she was capable of so much more, and quickly had me moving into her corner and cheering her on. Taco is a tough man to handle, and I felt as though she brought her "A" game, and stood toe to toe with him time after time, and showed him she wasn't a pushover... it was such a treat to watch them dance around on another! If you haven't ventured into this series yet, I highly recommend you get to it, and dive into this wonderful biker filled world that Ms. Valentine has created... it's sinfully delightful!!!




Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid.

Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.


After being burned by love Gabby Morgan made the decision to never let her heart travel down that path again, no matter how tempting the man might be, but she didn't account for a man like Blake Mahone. The minute he waltzes into her carefully planned life she feels her plan start to falter, and tries her damnedest to resist his bad boy charm, because after all he is a walking reminder of the past she is trying to keep buried, but every time their near each other there is this magnetic pull between them that no amount of resistance can withstand. He slowly, but surely, has found a way to sneak past her defenses, and has her wanting things she never thought were possible for her again, and it scares her beyond belief, because her past is still there lingering and could intervene at a moments notice and strip her of everything she holds dear. 

Blake Mahone took a chance on love, and it was a risk with very little reward, watching the woman he cared for walk out of his life, and leave him and their son behind hurt like hell and left him not willing to ever venture down that road again. He is trying to embrace being a single parent, and doing all he can to ensure his son has everything he needs, and just when he thinks he's on the right track, his son's teacher informs him parenting skills need some work. He has never met a woman quite like Gabby, she is beautiful, challenging and frustrates him beyond belief, and tempts him to want things he was sure he'd never want again. He tries to ignore the chemistry between them, but little by little it turns into a addiction he just can't walk away from, he craves her and will stop at nothing to find a way to lure her permanently into his bed...and his heart!

From the moment I started this one I knew I had stumbled onto a story that was going to ingrain itself into my every thought, and leave a mark on my heart that would linger long after the last page was turned...and true to my initial thought it did, and now all I can say WOW!! Gabby and Blake's story captivated my attention almost immediately, and had me fully invested in their story from start to finish, it was so addictive!! I knew the minute these two got together there would be sparks, but nothing prepared me for the intensity in those sparks, the smoldering passion and heated intensity that erupted from each encounter these two shared had me gasping for air, and left me tingling in all the right places!! At first glance you would think they were a total mismatch, but the deeper into their story you soon learn that they have a special way of balancing each other out and find a way to prove to you that opposites really do attract. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these two, and cannot wait to make a return visit to this series, and get better acquainted with more of the men from the Spartan Riders!! 

If you like your fairy tales little on the naughty side and equipped with a bad boy that knows just what it takes to leave his woman satisfied then you should DEFINITELY spend a little time Mr. Mahone, he'll leave you with a permanent smile on your face and tingling in all the right places!!


Talia McKinnon said goodbye to love the day she signed the divorce papers and moved across the country looking for a fresh start. With work occupying her days and nights, a relationship is the last thing on her mind, until a run-in with a hot-as-Hades, leather clad biker changes her mind. He’s everything she shouldn’t want but has to have. The problem is, he’s not that easy to catch. 

Tucker “Country” Abrams believes in two things: brotherhood and women. He takes his job seriously and his women hard, but at the end of the day, the only loyalty he has is to his club. So when a night with a beautiful stranger threatens to change everything, he’s quick to apply the brakes. But when a little detective work reveals that Talia may be much more than a one-night stand, Tucker is tasked with an impossible decision. Will he push her away, or go against every instinct he has and pull her closer?


Nothing puts a damper on your love life like a divorce... and the minute Talia McKinnon signs the papers she takes love completely off the table, and blows outta town looking for a fresh new start. She is ready to let her heart heal, focus on herself for a while, and live life on her terms. The last thing on her mind right now is dating, or opening her heart to love again, that is until a sexy biker walks into her life...

Tucker Abrams loves women, but his entanglements with women are kept strictly on a "no strings attached" basis, and honestly he wouldn't have it any other way, relationships tend to be messy and would interfere with his dedication to the club. The men at his club are his brothers, and they always come first in his life, and he lay down his life for them, and they'd do the same for him. It is understood amongst them all that the club comes first, no matter the cost. But after Tucker begins spending a little too much time with his latest bed partner the club starts to question his loyalty, and wants him to let her go... but there's something about this one that has him wanting to say something he never thought he would... stay!

After finishing the first book in this series I was dying to get up close and personal with another member of the Spartan Riders, and meet my next book boyfriend. The minute Tucker waltzed onto to the page he had me at hello, his sexy swagger, dominating alpha tendencies, and silky smooth one liners had my heart beating, and my panties melting!! The man was seriously sexy, after reading the synopsis I suspected his story would be hot, but nothing could have prepared me for what I found... it had everything you could possibly want in a romance story and much more!! He definitely gave Blake a run for his money as my favorite Spartan Rider!!! I highly recommend you get your hands on this book and take a little time to acquaint yourself with Tucker, the man will set your world on fire, and leave you wishing for a sexy biker of your very own!!!

Ginger isn't ready for what he wants, and she plans to fight him every step of the way... no matter how tempting he may be!

Repo has been biding his time, watching Ginger from afar, and waiting for the chance to make her his ol' lady, and now that she isn't tied to her ex he's ready to move in and stake his claim.
