by Jodi Linton
An MC Conteporary Romance
Releasing January 4th 2016
She wants revenge…
The Dirty Sinners Motorcycle Club is Em Connors’s only family, but she’s ready to risk everything–both her club and her life–for vengeance. Ten months ago, she was brutally attacked and her lover gunned down by a rival gang member. Now, she’s using her position as the Dirty Sinners president to track down the truth and exact her revenge.
He’ll risk it all…
With his partner murdered by a local motorcycle gang, Houston police officer Cade Jackson jumps at the chance to go back undercover and bring down the woman the department calls the Motorcycle Princess. But the sexy-as-hell leader awakens a hunger in Cade. Dark desires run deep–and he intends on teaching Em exactly how dirty he can be. But when his cover is blown, Cade must choose to uphold the law or protect the woman he’s grown to love…by going rogue.

What interested me about this story was the concept. I’ve read my fair share of MC Romances and I thought having a female club president would make for a fascinating story.
However, within a couple of pages into the story I found my interest waning when it came to the heroine. Em tried too hard and failed to impressed me. I wanted to see a badass chick with a softer side, but it became clear it was all pretense on her part–at least in regards to her degree of badassness.
I do have to say that enjoyed the hell out of Cade though. He was rough, hard-edged and everything I expected him to be and more. He was authentic in his duplicity–badass biker/cop. It worried me at first, but ultimately I came to understand how he could compartmentalize those two sides of his personality.
In any case, the chemistry between these two was potent and the author didn’t miss a beat in bringing it to the page. Within the first chapter alone you could see the sparks that flared between Em and Cade–they were intense and all-encompassing. The connection between Em and Cade was slow in coming, but made itself known which I came to appreciate a lot. I just wished I could have connected with Em fully, simply because I think it would have increased my enjoyment of this story.
As the first in a series, Rebel Love worked well in regards to establishing the world of The Dirty Sinners Motorcycle Club. The author not only introduced its members, but also set the stage for other upcoming books in the series.
All in all, a good start to a series and a sexy hot little read to make it all worthwhile.
*I received a copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.
He patted the motorcycle seat. “Hop on.”
“I’m nobody’s bitch. Especially some outlaw arrogant biker I just hired,” she warned. “What makes you so special that you can skip out on work?”
He chuckled despite himself. “Between you and me, I think the boss lady is sort of sweet on me.”
She stared at the bike seat, not even attempting to make a move.
Waving his ignorance flag, Cade hunched over the handlebars. “You want me to say I’m sorry? That I shouldn’t have kissed you yesterday? Not going to happen, Em. I’m not that good of a man.” He smiled. “One ride, and then I might consider kissing you again.”
“Clingy much?” she ground out.
“Got a rebellious streak, babe.” He slowly slid a glance down her body, knowing his needy feelings to own the heartbreaker biker chick were entirely stupid. But, shit, they were so damn powerful. Risky, even. “When I see something I want, nothing stops me from getting it.”
“You’re awfully confident for a mechanic, aren’t you? Let me remind you about something. Mechanics are a dime a dozen, so if you want to hit the road, you’d be doing us both a favor.” She shifted her weight, hip cocked in a prissy stance. “Hell, I’ll even buy your gas if that means you’ll ride off into the sunset. Like right now.”
She knew exactly the right buttons to push to piss him off. That kiss yesterday had been anything but forced. Yet if he called her bluff, went all Hulk on her, Em would run. Turn her cute button-shaped nose up at him and haul her sexy ass back inside. It probably made sense to apologize and try to get in her good graces, but Cade had never taken the easy route. And gaining Em Connors’s trust would be no different, since he wasn’t about to burn the man code and turn into some Hallmark greeting card guy. Instead he winked and revved the throttle on his bike. “Princess, I can tell you’re dying to know if I can handle this horsepower between my legs.”
