    Admittedly I didn t get very far, but the bit I read seemed unreal and dated Like King was channeling a 1970s movie character, and I legit expected him to break out his comb to do a Danny Zuko Parallel to that, the Alpha male thing is reminiscent of Kristen Ashley who, by the way, is one of my least fave authors Anyways, it s a DNF for me.

    NOTE This coming year I have set a challenge for myself of reading one book a week that takes me out of my comfort zone A book that may include one ortropes scenarios that I avoid like the plague Cheating Older women younger man OW drama Just to name a few Nothing is off limits I am taking a HUGE step out of the box I usually live in and charting a course into the unknown HaHa My reviews for these books will differ slightly from my usual as I will focuson whether the NOTE This coming year I have set a challenge for myself of reading one book a week that takes me out of my comfort zone A book that may include one ortropes scenarios that I avoid like the plague Cheating Older women younger man OW drama Just to name a few Nothing is off limits I am taking a HUGE step out of the box I usually live in and charting a course into the unknown HaHa My reviews for these books will differ slightly from my usual as I will focuson whether the author wowed me despite it having content I avoid That said, I will go into each book with an open mind and an open heart and who knows, maybe I will discover a new favorite author on the way THIS BOOK INCLUDED THE FOLLOWING TROPES SCENARIOS I USUALLY AVOID Older Woman Younger Man WRITING PLOT PACE So apparently hell has officially frozen over because I LOVED this book L O V E D it, and I usually HATE the whole older woman younger man trope That said, King acted WAY older than he was supposed to be and the heroine acted younger than 26 Both of which I am sure helped me forget the age difference On top of that, this was very similar to a KA book The writing The way they spoke Certain things that take place And since I adore early KA, I loved that aspect of this book as well The writing was fantastic The pace was perfect The plot was super engaging Last, it was all wrapped up in a very good happy for now ending HERO KINGI adored KING He was smokin hot He was sexy He was smart He wrote poetry He was alpha He knew what he wanted, and he went all out to get it I felt a little pervy lusting after an 18 year old, but like I said he acted older so I am just going to pretend he was lol King rates up there as one of my favorite book boyfriends ever HEROINE CRESS liked Cress a lot as well She was a teensy bit annoying sometimes with how judgy she was and all the push pulling she did But I did like that she always apologized straight away and knew the way she was acting wasn t fair or right SECONDARY CHARACTERS There were SO many awesome secondary characters in this book I LOVED Daddy Zeus I loved so many of the MC brothers I loved Cress s students I loved the biker babes I loved Officer Danner I sort of even liked Cress s brother Sander and I am hella curious to see what this author is going to do with his character especially after reading book two of this series HEAT LEVEL This was pretty insta lust, but it takes a bit until we get to the sexy times 50% That said, this couple has an excellent on page chemistry, and when we do get to the sex scenes, they are super hot and plentiful ANGST LEVEL SEXUAL HISTORIES Low to Medium There is a bit of push and pull from the heroine I am not usually a fan of that, but it didn t overly bother me here I kind of got where Cress was coming from The student teacher thing wasn t as big a deal as I thought it would be Of course, we have some drama from a rival MC that causes some angst Neither were virgins There was a bit of OW drama with I guess some MC chick that took King s virginity, and she and heroine get into it a bit It is never really made clear if the stuff she was telling the heroine actually took place or not, so I am going to assume it did There was also some OM drama in the form of Cress s husband some to be ex IN THE END I ended up loving this book WAYthan I ever thought possible lol In fact, I would go so far as to say that out of the very few older woman younger man books I have read, this was by FAR my favorite Of course, again, I am chalking it up to the characters not really acting the ages that the author assigned to them But honestly, who cares I loved it I will probably reread it I can t wait to read book three Therefore yours truly is going to give this one two HUGE thumbs up

    UPDATE Reread this in 2019 and am bumping it up to a 5 star read Loved it so much It s no secret that I love a good motorcycle romance, so when one of my instagram friends recommended this series to me, I went toand immediately downloaded it from KU After finally leaving her husband, Cress finds herself living for herself for the first time And that means starting a fling with a hot biker she met at the grocery store Cress is finally giving into UPDATE Reread this in 2019 and am bumping it up to a 5 star read Loved it so much It s no secret that I love a good motorcycle romance, so when one of my instagram friends recommended this series to me, I went toand immediately downloaded it from KU After finally leaving her husband, Cress finds herself living for herself for the first time And that means starting a fling with a hot biker she met at the grocery store Cress is finally giving into the desires she s hidden deep inside of herself, even though her parents are determined to make her see the error in her ways When Cress realizes that her new student happens to be the biker she s started an intense relationship with, she freaks Can she really be the kind of woman who breaks all of the rules just to finally be herself I had super high expectations going into this one and, I will say, the beginning was a little slow for me We got to meet Cress and watch her make new friends with the other teachers at school and slowly learnabout the biker way of life When we finally got halfway through the story, though, and we got to follow Cress and Kingclosely as a couple, I really loved this book I loved how she became friends with people in the gang and really became a part of their family I will say, Cress definitely had a very wishy washy attitude towards her relationship with King because he was one of her students It was a little annoying at times how she constantly pulled back with the same excuse, but King was soooo swoon worthy and did everything he could to show Cress he was serious Half the time, I forgot that King was 18 years old because he was so mature and had such a big role in the gang I really ended up enjoying this motorcycle romance and I am DYING to read Zues s story King s dad in the second book If you re a motorcycle romance fan who likes their romances on the taboo side, you need to check out Lessons in Corruption

    4 Bone of my Bone StarsWho knows my reading habits maybe noticed that I avoid MC books,,,they are just not my style with all the old lady bitch stuff, but I decided to give this a try and I am so happy I did so because this was a beautiful love story a bit unconventional with reverse age gap and teacher student trope.This book is definitelytame regarding the MC aspect , but it still held a bot of action and MC business.Now, about the story we have Cress and King , she is 26 married and 4 Bone of my Bone StarsWho knows my reading habits maybe noticed that I avoid MC books,,,they are just not my style with all the old lady bitch stuff, but I decided to give this a try and I am so happy I did so because this was a beautiful love story a bit unconventional with reverse age gap and teacher student trope.This book is definitelytame regarding the MC aspect , but it still held a bot of action and MC business.Now, about the story we have Cress and King , she is 26 married and a teacher , he is 18 ,a rebel without a cause, her student and the son of the Prez of MC The Fallen She sees him one day in a parking lot and his carefree vibe, addictive laughter and happiness made her wantfro her life than being married with an older man that couldn t give her what she wanted from life So she leaves her husband who was a creep in my opinion waiting for her to grow up at be 18 so he can marry her and settles in a town by herself working as a teacher at the prestigious school there.He held the torch, the threat against everything I had ever stood for,and he had the balls to dare me to come closer Yet somehow, I found myself obeying, willingly laying myself on the pyre at his feet with open arms Because if I was going to burn, I was going to make sure we did it togetherAfter 3 months she sees the handsome guy from the parking again, but this time she gets to interact with him..and so begins their beautiful love story.To be honest, miss Darling is really a poet, because this book was so beautifully written , and touching and inspiring Both Cress and her King are wonderful characters, real life people with fears and insecurities and decisions to make.I loved seeing their relationship grow so much This is example of couple goals , and King is the perfect boyfriend a girl could have, a poet, a romantic, wild and free and with the right thing to say always SWOON WORTHY I am telling you.Look at you like what Like I m worth somethin special Don t get that much and babe, I gotta tell you, it makes me feel like I m King of my own fuckin castleHappiness is streaking bare assed naked down the wet sand into the wet waves, it s drinkin too much and laughin too loud with your friends, it s lovin so hard you want to devour the flesh, soul and mind of another person None of that is fuckin pure and all of it is fuckin sublimeIt was irritating that King always pushed me,forced me up against the boundaries of my propriety like he wanted to fuck me from behind in front of an audience of my personal demons It was evenirritating that it made me feel electric with tension and vitality, that the colors of the world grew neon and sharp.
