Foxy Rating = Four Stars

This is the second book in the Lords Of Mayhem series and this is Joey and Moose’s story.

Josephine (Joey) and Moose have been attracted to each other since they first set eyes on each other but it isn’t until they are thrown together for Juliette and Shooter’s wedding, that they take things further. Being in close proximity has the pairing unable to rein in their lust for each other and they commence on a series of secret hook ups and no pressure to make it anything other than what it is. But then feelings get caught up in that plan and although both are shy of commitment, they also both know they can not let this ‘thing’ go.

I really loved this story from the onset and was instantly bought into Moose and Joey’s romance. I liked his hard-ass persona and his smouldering looks and Joey’s ballsy attitude, but it was how they interacted with each other, gradually learning to put a deep trust in each other and revealing their true inner feelings. The steamy hot passion was also an added bonus and must read scenes!

I had not read the first book in the series, The Biker’s Librarian, and although it states this book can be read as standalone, I would suggest that the new reader does read the books in order. I found myself lost in the sub plot scenes in regards to the threat to the club which was in relation to something that happened to Juliette in the first book as I did not know what and why they had happened. So this did detract from the overall enjoyment of the book. Not that this was a bad thing as I still loved everything else but this would probably have been a five star read if I had that prior knowledge.

Overall a definite must recommend MC read and I shall look forward to reading more from this author. Four Stars.

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
