He thinks he’s finally found the one.

She’s almost ready for a second chance. 
What started out as a casual hookup with a rugged geologist has turned into something a whole lot more. Simone’s on the verge of handing over her heart, but fear over what Mitch will say and do when he learns who she used to be holds her back.

The past could destroy their future... 
Just when Simone is about to take a chance on forever with Mitch, the mistakes of her past catch up with her. Suddenly it’s not just her safety on the line anymore, it’s his too. Forced into hiding, Mitch demands answers, and Simone realizes the only way to protect everything she holds dear is to delve into a past she’s spent fourteen years trying to forget. As they search for the truth, they discover secrets, lies and a rekindled passion that burns hotter than before. But they also uncover a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of society. One that could cost them more than just their future…it could cost them their lives.

Desperados MC by Sienna Valentine

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Her friends warned her that she shouldn't take the job bartending at that "biker bar", but Madison knew exactly what she was getting into. At least, she thought she did. She'd grown up in a sheltered household, but she'd watched SoA on TV, she was sure she knew what she was getting into. But when it came down to two tough members of the Desperado biker gang calling her bluff and leading her to the back room of the bar, she started having second thoughts.

Was she willing to do as they expected once they got back there, or was she going to chicken out?

This is a rough and wild motorcycle tale involving explicit sex, including MMF action between two bikers and a young woman who is crazy enough to get mixed up with them. It is intended for adults only.

A slightly overweight and sweaty man rushed over from the other side of the bar, wiping his head with a cloth to clear the sweat before it dripped into his eyes. "Yeah, Dax?"

"Madison here is going on break," he said. "And we need to use your back room."

Jimmy, the manager of the Drunken Skull, simply nodded his head in agreement, handing over a key to the biker's outstretched hand. "Sure, anything you need. Take as long as you want."

Madison's eyes widened as she realized her manager just agreed to let these two bikers take her into the private back room for however long they wanted to do whatever they wanted. She realized she had been inviting their attention, but now that reality was facing her she was having second thoughts.

Let's go." Dax said, as he jerked his head towards the hallway leading to the back of the bar. Madison paused for a moment, unsure what to do. Jimmy just averted his eyes and went back to serving customers, about as far away from them as he could get. He was obviously uninterested in getting involved in the affairs of the bikers that frequented his bar, even at the expense of one of his employees.

Troy looked at her, reading the indecision in her face immediately. He led out a sharp laugh. "Which one of us is all talk?" Madison's heart was pounding in her chest and her mouth felt dry. Dax had continued to walk, as if he didn't care whether she followed or not...

My Thoughts

This is another biker mc book, but it's nothing like the rest. It's not up there with the great Mc romances , I found it to be too short & it had a cliffhanger ending.
