— BLURB —
One kiss is all it takes to bring him to his knees and have him asking for forever.
Roane Connors doesn’t do relationships. He’s been burned before and isn’t looking to repeat past mistakes. All he needs is a warm body in his bed for the night. Someone to ring in the new year with. Julie Wilson ticks all his boxes. She’s back in town, hot, and single. When the clock strikes midnight one kiss ignites a spark this royal bastard’s not ready for.
The Biker’s Kiss is a Royal Bastards MC holiday novella.
— MY REVIEW —
Glenna Maynard is new-to-me author and when I saw Tempting the Biker — which is the third book in the series, I initially wanted to read it first but Glenna noted that it was best to read from the beginning of the series.
I figured since the first book is a novella, I might as well read it and get a better a idea of her writing style, her MC world, and see if it was something I was willing to continue with. Well? I’m so glad I did! 🙌
It’s second chance, insta-love romance, and ended up being a cool little novella to kick off the series!
Roane and Jules were high school sweethearts but life happened and they parted ways. Both having been burned from their shitty marriages and both now trying to move on from their exes they never expected to meet up again after all these years. Sparks immediately fly and they both wonder if this is their second chance at love.
“You’re not slipping through my fingers a second time, baby doll.”
All I can say is Roane is not one to beat around the bush. What he wants, he certainly will do everything in his power to get. This MC romance is full of alpha vibes! Roane is one assertive biker. But he’s also a protective bear of a man who would do anything to ensure Jules is happy.
Jules has lost a bit of her spirit but the more time she spends with Roane, the more her confidence returns. She has a likeable personality and isn’t one to rush into anything without at least voicing her concerns.
I’d say this story focuses more on Roane and Jules’ rekindling relationship with the Royal Bastards MC is the background. You get introduced to a couple of the other brothers that gives you a little insight to the club and their bond. Whilst I would’ve loved to have seen more, I understand that this is a novella and only so much can be shared. What was revealed was definitely enough for me to be intrigued about the next couples stories’ in the series. *waggles eyebrows* 😉😉
“Hate to break it to you, baby doll, but you’re in The Devil’s Playground. Normal rules don’t apply.”
One highlight for me in this book (other than the hot and heavy romance) is Pam, Jules’ older sister. She is a hoot and a half! 😂 A great addition to the story to keep it lighthearted and you giggling at her random commentary.
There are some sensitive subject matter included in this story that may trigger some readers such as domestic abuse, sexual assault and substance abuse. Please keep that in mind before considering to start this book/ series.
Overall, whilst this book took on a faster pace storytelling (since it’s a novella), and how our protagonists’ relationship progressed at a relatively breakneck speed, I still enjoyed it. I got invested in their world and I’m looking forward to reading the next books!
If you’re looking for more MC romance books, I’d consider adding this series to your TBR!
Hope you enjoyed! Happy reading, and as always, catch you in my next one! Xo
