June Bell had a moment with her long time crush in high school. She had planned to lose her V-card to him, but an interruption left her waiting and wanting. Her crush left without a goodbye for college and she has been in a holding pattern ever since. She claims its because she has been busy helping her father run the family business, but we all know she is in denial. When she finds out her crush is back from college and looking to deal with his own family’s legacy, she makes a b-line to confront him. June arrives just in time for a Darcy like scene at the lake. Yum! She gets roped into a bargain for the land her dad has been wanting for years. A hidden picture she finds while packing stirs the pot of lies she didn’t even knew existed. The story’s roller coaster picks up speed from there and it gets so much yummier!

Kase McCasker has been drawn to the girl next door since grade school. It was a bit of a love, hate relationship given that their parents were rivals. His world blew up before he could claim her, and he escaped to college to forget. Now 4 years later and home, he finds out that June is still in the same ‘condition’ he left her in. He concocts a plan to save his home with the added benefit of claiming whats his. Kase has secrets that will put his new found joy to the test with an outcome I wasn’t quite expecting.

The family issues is what makes this whole story a hot mess. A little bit of honesty on everyone’s part could of prevented a lot of strife, but then hind sight is 20/20. I can’t say much more without spoiling it for you, but just know its way crazier then whatever you are currently thinking. The smexy times were HOT, and there were some laughs and some surprises. Really can’t beat that in a romance tale. You can probably find this through your local library but if not, it’s worth the credit.

Meredith Wild produced an ending I didn’t see coming. Bravo! I really do love this ‘series’ of standalones. I know she doesn’t write them all but she is responsible for them making it to the market. 👍

Jennifer Mack delivers great male and female character voices. It’s not quite fair to compare her to the male narrator of this story since they rotate chapters. A true duet would of been better, because both performers were excellent.

Normal speed was fine, however I listened at 0.90x. It is my personal preference.

Review: Running Wild (Hell Ryders MC #1) by J.L. Sheppard

What A First Ride!

Running Wild is #01 in the Hell Ryders MC Series by J.L. Sheppard.

Ken Solin narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

This is the first in series so can be read at anytime. But as always, I suggest reading in order once you start this series.

Length: 9 hrs and 58 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, dirty talk, and cussing. Yum!

Motorcycles + Hot Alpha Males = A Smexy Good Time!

Running Wild is the first in this MC Romance series. It does a good job at setting the ground work for the players and their world without distracting from plot. It centers around Jace and Allie, but by the end you know all the characters you want to see get a HEA, as well as the ones you want to punch in the throat. All done without slowing you down or making you forget what you were actually reading about.

Jace “Trigger” Warren is our first biker bad boy up to bat. He has a lot of heart despite his gruff exterior. He is attracted to the heroine from the moment he sees her, but has to hold back because his war buddy Ty puts the “Do Not Touch” stamp on her right off the bat. Of course this doesn’t ultimately stop him, but it does make it hella complicated. I like the character but he mentioned being trailer trash way too much to the point it became cringe worthy. 3 times spaced out would of gotten the point across fine. I do love that he is not afraid to speak up and tell it like it is, especially to Lilliam. I hated that psycho.

Alyssa “Allie” Holden is our self conscience heroine. It’s to the point I wanted to smack her by the end. She manages to pull herself out of a F’d up situation to escape to the safety of her brother Ty. Not to mention this chick has a masters degree from an Ivy League school. The girl is smart and has got some balls, but she just doesn’t realize it. Lucky for her Jace doesn’t let her hide from it! She bucks the system in her determination to not have anyone control her life, but finds out the hard way why the secret service do what they do. I’m hoping in the future books we will see more growth in her character. 

Overall this is a great start to a new series. I look forward to the bikers that are yet to come. I really want to hear Ty’s book. That boy is so clueless! I think he has a thing for Tina. He so wants to be her baby daddy in more than just the obvious ways! It would also be poetic turn-about. She is Jace‘s little sister! There are currently 2 more Hell Ryders stories out in audio, Cuss and Ripper.

This is my first listen by Ken Solin. He does a good job with the various characters. His pauses could use some polish but overall it works.

Normal speed was fine.
There were some random background noises from time to time but in short spurts.
