I like my sex dirty and disposable. I'm not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second and last.

Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich and so out of my league it's crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we're all alone and I can't get enough of her.

I don't do forever, but she's hooked me so bad I don't ever want to let her go. Except there's no way a princess can live in my world and I sure as hell won't live in hers...

I not so secretly love all thing MC romance related, and this blurb doesn’t give too much away about the book, just that Zach is in an MC and a classy girl from the right side of the tracks shows up one night and of course they get together. I want to say upfront that this book is not a super hard MC book, if you are looking for dark and gritty MC, this is not your book. While it still is about a guy in an MC and he’s definitely rough around the edges, the book is kinda like a sweet MC, and I kind of really liked that.

So most MC books I’ve read the guy is super involved in the Club and the author goes into a lot of storyline about the club and the things the club is involved with, which almost always gives it kind of a dangerous tone to it all. While I would say the author kind of hints at the fact that the MC is involved in maybe some less then lawful activity, there is no real MC storyline here, it’s all Zach and Grace, which was kinda nice for me.

Zach is super confident, I almost think too confident. Grace walks into a bar on the seedy side of town, and MC bar, looking for a phone because he car broke down, and Zach is like convinced, I mean convinced, the whole thing is a rouse so she can hook up with rough and dirty guy. Normally I don’t love that kind of thing, but it worked in this instance. Grace was pretty receptive to his attitude and I think she really needed to for lack of a better phrase, take a walk on the wild side. Zach is just likable. He lives with his sister, he seems to be a pretty stand up guy in the club, he’s really good to Grace, I mean it kinda fun to read how he interacts with Grace, he still has that kind of hard edge, but he says all the right things and does the right things and you can’t but really like him.

Grace is relatable. She’s well-bred, educated, stable, all the things that should equal a happy easy life in corporate America. But all she wants to do is open a bakery and be herself, or rather kind of find herself. Zach is like the first person to just let her be her, and encourages her. It was so easy to see how she could find herself wanting him. Plus these two really do heat up the sheets.

I was super pulling for these two, they were cute and hot and opposite attract and all that. They also knew how to pull at the emotional heart strings in some spots (because no couple can have it easy all the time). I liked the writing, I liked the pace, I liked the characters, I liked it all. Highly recommend.
