USA Today and International bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her electrifying, dangerous, and provocative world of the Spartan Riders MC…
After escaping an abusive marriage, Spartan Riders bartender Ginger “Red” Mercury is determined to live life on her own terms. When the club’s VP declares her untouchable and stakes his own claim on her, she finds herself ready to wage war.
A year after inoculating the threat from notorious cartel leader Ricky Cruiz, Garrick “Repo” Stone, the last-standing original member of the Spartan Riders MC, has his focus on something else: monogamy. Having decided to settle down and take an ol’ lady, he has his sights set on Red…and he has his work cut out for him if he hopes to win her.
When a new threat makes itself known, threatening everything the brothers stand for and care about, they’re left scrambling to find out who’s behind it before it’s too late. With the high-stakes game of war looming over them, will Red be able to open her heart to love before outside forces pull her and Repo apart?


Why was i so stupid and not read books 1 and 2 first? ughh  I'm an idiot!!!

Ok so i join this series on book 3 ( I will be reading 1 and 2 ASAP!)

Repo and Ginger.

Repo decides that it's time for him to take an ol' lady again.  The first one didn't work out but he knows that Ginger is the one for him.  He spreads the word around the Spartans that she's not to be touched.

Ginger is a bunny of sorts but she has the men's respect.  Having been with them for years and working the bar she acts as a sort of mother to them.  They go to her for comfort and advice and a bit of fun.  Ginger is happy with this.  After her disastrous relationship with Hawke, Ginger knows shes better off on her own.  She will never be controlled by a man again so she uses the brothers as much as they use her.  That is until it all stops at Repo's say so.

Angry that Repo has claimed her she is determined to fight him tooth and nail.  No way is he going to control her and no way was she being anyone's ol' lady.  

Repo has a fight on his hands.  Not only from Ginger but from an unknown threat.  They thought everything would be quiet for a while after getting rid of Ricky Cruiz.  They were wrong.

I really really wished i had read the first two so please be aware and definitely read the whole the series.  I did follow it don't get me wrong.  There was enough catch up to let me know what went on before but i think it spoiled my enjoyment because i didn't know it in detail.  

I loved the way the book is written.  The POV is from various people even the baddies so i loved getting into all their heads! The story was well paced and kept my rapt attention to the end.  I love how it's a continuing story too so I'm waiting for the next release on the edge of my seat! 

I loved Repo! He's your typical pig headed neanderthal biker but i love the softness he had for Ginger even if she didn't always see it.  His speech to Ginger near the end had me "awwwww"ing big time!!! sigh... he really is kinda sweet! lol  

Ginger is amazing! She's so strong and independent with a vulnerable undercurrent that she refuses to show.  I love how she sticks to her guns although sometimes i wished she hadn't for Repo's sake lol

The whole cast of characters have my attention but I'm particularly looking forwards to seeing what Taco is up to! 

Overall a highly enjoyable and i would definitely recommend it, but please be aware it's part of a series and for the best enjoyment read it from the start!

Taco's story...blurb coming soon!





Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid. Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.



Talia McKinnon said goodbye to love the day she signed the divorce papers and moved across the country looking for a fresh start. With work occupying her days and nights, a relationship is the last thing on her mind, until a run-in with a hot-as-Hades, leather clad biker changes her mind. He’s everything she shouldn’t want but has to have. The problem is, he’s not that easy to catch. Tucker “Country” Abrams believes in two things: brotherhood and women. He takes his job seriously and his women hard, but at the end of the day, the only loyalty he has is to his club. So when a night with a beautiful stranger threatens to change everything, he’s quick to apply the brakes. But when a little detective work reveals that Talia may be much more than a one-night stand, Tucker is tasked with an impossible decision. Will he push her away, or go against every instinct he has and pull her closer?
