Publisher's Summary

He was my boss, my brother's friend, a widow, an ex-felon, and a man I'd seen casually with a handful of women. But he was everything that gripped me, both the good and the bad. Worst case scenario: If things turned awkward between us, I could go somewhere else. I'd gotten over epic heartbreak before; one more wouldn't kill me.
After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude and impatient, and he doesn't know how to tell time. And the last thing they ever expected was each other.
Contains mature themes.

This was a really fun and enjoyable audiobook! I thought Callie Dalton did a great job narrating and representing the heroine, Iris Taylor well. The story is told through Iris's POV and she is an interesting character. Iris has her own story filled with heartache and tragedy, but OMG she's definitely got fight in her, and I loved that! Iris's thoughts are funny because she can be so crude and tends to hyper-focus on the feeling of throwing up or passing gas during stressful situations...a bit immature, but so funny! I liked the hero, Dex Locke, he had great sex appeal...masculine, brooding, moody, but very interested.....I loved how Iris and Dex clashed at first, but that's where all of the body language came into play. When Iris describes Dex you can't help but feel that his body language was screaming for her. The romance developed very nicely...it felt natural and each moment built off of the previous. When they finally come together, the reader is as fully invested in the romance as the leads because there was so much depth that had been created before they decided on making it a "forever" kind of love.

The plot, conflict, and build-up was nicely employed throughout this book. There was never a time where I was bored or felt that it slowed down. In this book you get a great brother-sister relationship, nicely developed steamy romance, great action and plot filled with ominous bikers, and fun and meaningful, surrounding characters. It's true this is not a traditional biker story, but I'm not complaining. Mariana Zapata did a great job! Her writing was fun and lively. Great audiobook!

An Unusually Sweet MC Romance

The story was far from what I've read of other MCs but it was just as enjoyable. The sharp edges of bikers has been smoothed in this book so there's not so much roughness. Characters were nice and the love story progresses naturally. There was some time lapses / transitions that were confusing in audio. Other than that, the narrator performed well.
