Title: Detour (Beautiful Biker #1)
Author: D.D. Prince
Published: September 27th 2016 by Amazon Digital Services
He’s 28, tall, dark, gorgeous, and 100% alpha male. In the relationship department, things either go one way or the other. He either shows them a good time and moves on, never going back for seconds, or he stakes a claim and things get serious REAL fast. It’s been a long while since he’s been motivated to claim anyone. Deacon has what some might classify a problem with possessiveness and jealousy. But he’s got good reasons for this. And when he does stake his claim, he means it. And he allows no one to mess with that.
Ella, 23, feels like the Marilyn Munster of her eclectic household. Despite her crazy hippie parents and rambunctious little brother, her life is boring and humdrum. And her love life is so far off the mark that she considers herself in a serious relationship with her battery-operated boyfriend. She’s having trouble shaking off an ex that won’t go away and fending off her partying friends who continually hassle her to either party with them or be their designated driver.
But things are about to get real for Ella. Real fast.
Very soon after she notices the new Beautiful Biker in town she finds herself in a real pickle. In fact, Ella keeps finding herself in trouble. And Deacon, whose MC has just opened a chapter, biker bar, and garage in Ella’s town, (much to the chagrin of an existing rival MC), notices Ella, too. Deacon keeps swooping in to save Ella’s bacon from a variety of tight spots.
And because of that, it draws even further attention to her. Someone or several someone want revenge against Deacon and his MC and don’t mind using a biker’s woman to make their point.
Ella has been warned away from Deacon. And she worries that her heart will go SPLAT if she lets the beautiful biker get too close.
But it’s too late. Ella has no choice because Deacon is determined to get right in her space.
This book contains a hot alpha book boyfriend, steamy hot scenes, some laughs, and plenty of biker romance action. And because it comes from the brain of DD Prince, it has a little bit of darkness, too.
Standalone, no cliffhanger.
Full disclosure: I wanted to love it! I needed to love it at that time. I read this book with such desperation and an immense hunger for an MC Romance. Yet, I was a little bit disappointed.
Short version of the blurb (because actual blurb may be longer than my review): Ella meets Deacon, when he moves in town with his MC. There’s instant attraction between them, but things are always more complicated. Not only we have the rival MC club and the misunderstandings between them, but also the rumors, the fear of becoming involved with a “bad boy”.
I liked the action. This is what kept me reading until the last page. I was curious to know how this conflict would be resolved and I was also curios to see if finally our main characters would sit and talk. The romance, even if it happened kind of fast (the L-word is too soon added to the conversation, in my opinion) was great and their hot moments were really hot. But that’s about it.
There are more items that I did not enjoy, such as the unbelievable amount of descriptions or unnecessary facts. I did not like her friends. They seemed kind of bitchy (excuse the language) and in a hurry to tell Ella the bad things about her boyfriend. There is a weird conflict with a gang bang that may or may not be voluntary. Ella’s family seems to be a mess (with a father that has a weird behavior and a mother that tends to be irresponsible sometimes). I missed as well Deacon’s POV and his opinion on the events.
But to keep this short, I did not enjoy it as much as I wanted. I will however give a shot to the other books in the series and hopefully they will be a bit better edited.
Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read the book and what’s your overall opinion about it. Until next time, happy reading 🙂
I don’t get it. I don’t get the arrow, I don’t get what’s that zipper in the guy’s pants… I don’t get it. I’m sorry… Nice abs though 🙂
“Sweetheart, I know you like your life to be a well-oiled machine, but let your old Dad give you some advice. Sometimes is good to go off course. You heard that old saying, go out on a limb; that’s where the fruit is. Right?”
