Product Description

Product Description

Not everything is roses, chocolates and vibrators in Zara's life...until Talon, Hawks MC President, wants to claim her as his.

Zara Edgingway is a twenty-six-year-old secretary. She has a daughter that apparently knows-it-all and a best friend that could possibly have the mouth of Satan, but she's been with her through hell and back. Then there's the hunk'a'licious biker neighbour finally showing interest in her.
If only she isn't about to face her next obstacle in life, the one she ran from six years ago: her ex husband.

Talon Marcus is the president of the Hawks Motorcycle Club. For two years, he's had his eye on the quiet, reclusive, yet sassy, neighbour Zara. Finally, he has the chance to claim her as his woman. Just when her past catches up with her, she'll need, not only his protection, but the help from his biker brothers.
Now, if only she'd stop fighting him along the way.

This is the first time I have ever written a review for a book I did not finish, no I'm wrong it's a book I couldn't finish because it's that bad. The dialogue was, well I don't know what it was except I couldn't go on reading it. It felt like I was reading a story about two cartoon characters.

First read for me by this author. All I can say is never again.

I picked this up for free thinking it had potential, and after finishing it, I have decided that potential is all it has.
In summary, Zara marries the man of her dreams only to discover that he is really an abusive monster. She decides to finally flee her husband after he comes home one night drunk, and proceeds to violently beat and rape her, leaving her physically and emotionally broken, and pregnant. With the help of her bestie, she heals and starts life anew, but always wonders when/if her ex will find her. Now, 6 years later she has severed virtually all ties to her past (including her family)and she and her daughter now live across the street from an Mc compound. She and the MC president have been on each other's radar for some time. Despite his constant flirting, she tries to avoid him, but he has decided the games are over and he is going to claim her. If that isn't enough for her to deal with, it also seems like her husband has finally tracked her down, putting her and those she loves in danger......... ***************
With this storyline, this could, and arguably should, have been a tense, thrilling, and sexy romance, but instead this just comes across as a spoof. There is little to no insight offered so the reader can empathize with the situation, or the characters and their motivation, which leaves the whole story lacking in depth. Added to that, the dialogue between characters, particularly Zara and Deanna, is ridiculous and annoyingly over the top. With the "potential" seriousness of the plot I can understand a desire to inject some comedy relief, but it was non-stop, with all the characters continually trying to out smartass each other.

My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

For two years, Zara Edgingway, secretary for an investigation firm and single mother of a precocious six year-old, has lived next to the hot biker president of the Hawks motorcycle club across the street. Despite some occasional flirting and the odd suggestive remark, he has not once made a serious move on her, when all of a sudden he is all up in her face, claiming her as 'his woman', and apparently she is supposed to fall at his feet. Right!

Talon Marcus has kept close tabs and a keen eye on his pretty neighbour Zara, not wanting to scare her off if he moved in on her too soon. But after. A couple of years of dancing around each other, it was time to stake his claim. Reserved and careful as she was, her spunky nature and interest in him started shining through at times and he intended to capitalize on it. Her resistance wasn't going to hold him back, especially not when her body language told him something different altogether.

Just as Talon is forcing his way into Zara's life and home, she receives some disturbing news and with that comes the first sign that perhaps the past she had been hiding from is not as far behind her as she thought. Signs are piling up that she might not be safe and Talon in his self-appointed role as 'her man' takes his protective duties very seriously, keeping tabs on her at all times with the help of his MC.

When trust is betrayed and lives are threatened, it will take a leap of faith for Zara and Talon to come through......alive.

*****

A gut-bustingly fun & steamy thrill read!!!

I can't remember why I picked up this book, but I'm so glad I did!! It was a blast!!

So here's the thing... I really liked the blurb about this book and I always read the reviews before I buy any books.
But I was a little disappointed with this one. I enjoyed it, but I had to force myself to keep readingit at some points....
Here's why... there is not really any depth to the story in the beginning and they jump right in, I didnt feel like the characters were that developed and it just seems so far fetched. I liked the overall premise of the story but I just didnt feel like it was executed as well as it could have been. I appreciated the humor and I liked the nick names and the back and forth banter, but It all just felt like filler... there didnt seem to be a whole lot of substance to this one. I really wanted to like this book, but it fell kind of flat for me.

I loved this book. The characters can be sweet but at the same time, down and dirty. Especially the men (except for Julian of course. He's a riot).

Lila Rose is really funny.

If you like a good romance story, with some steamy sex scenes, then I recommend this book. It does have some violence; but its not a dark read like some other MC books.

I really couldn't put my Kindle down and as soon as I finished Holding Out, I bought the sequel.
