The Last Riders #7
Releasing July 29th, 2015
Young Ink Press
Life dealt him a dead man’s hand.
Lucky has always led a life of service, always putting his life on the line for someone else, managing to survive by pure luck and skill. After bringing an end to a multi-state drug ring, he was finally able to live the life he had wanted as a Last Rider.
A good man would walk away and not touch the curvy woman who has been tugging on his heartstrings. Lucky wasn’t a good man. Therefore, the bad-ass biker in him had a choice: once again become the man he had pretended to be and stake his claim or take the devil’s highway.
Some girls have all the luck.
Willa wasn’t one of them. All she wanted to do was give a home to the children she had made orphans. Instead, she found herself needing help from the man who had left the pulpit behind to embrace a life of sin.
Painfully shy and withdrawn, she wanted a quiet life, a simple man, and well-behaved children. The last thing she had ever expected was for Lucky to want her size twenty body and show her a passion that would lead her straight to hell.
I have been reading this series since it's beginning. I have wanted Lucky and Willa's HEA for a while now. I couldn't contain my excitement when I got the ARC. Yay, me!!!
Lucky is enjoying his freedom as a Last Rider brother but he truly is not happy. He misses preaching as a pastor and also, he doesn't want to admit he's attracted to Willa. He's rude to her and he tries to discouraged her advances. Only when some of his other "brothers" start snooping around her is when he decides he needs to put a stop to it. And when Willa needs someone to help her, Lucky doesn't hesitate to step up the plate.
Willa killed a man and now she is raising his kids. At first she does it out of guilt but soon she starts caring for the kids. She loves to bake and making money from it is just the icing on the cake. She has a problem with her body. She knows she is not thin and she doesn't think a man like Lucky could be attracted to her. Avoiding him is her best way of dealing with her feelings. Nonetheless, when he offers his help she is unable to refuse him.
I enjoyed Jamie Begley's world so much that I found myself reluctant to read her books too fast. I savored every detail and laughed at her funny scenes throughout her books. There are plenty of instances during this story too. For example, Willa's comments under her breath had me laughing every single time. I like that she has developed a back bone and my favorite scene hands down is when Willa losses it in the kitchen. I laughed how the big dangerous man all cowered when she let them have it.
I have liked Lucky since Razer's Ride. He can be thoughtful. He has honor and he is loyal. Once he was not afraid to reveal his feelings for Willa, he was the Lucky I wanted to read about. He also had to deal with the love for the MC and the love for preaching. In the end, I think everything worked out the way it should.
In regards to the secondary characters:
Shade was great in making Lucky loose his patience. Nothing escapes him and he's can manipulate the rest - usually with the best intentions. I laughed when Lilly finally met a cowboy. Run cowboy run!.
Killyama and Train need to have their book now. Her broom scene made me laugh so hard.
I'm happy Rachel has her gift back. She is one of my favorite characters.
I don't like Bliss but I kind of want to know more about her book now (don't lynch me). I like her HEA.
King was helpful in making Lucky get jealous. His explanation to his lack of housework was awesome.
Sex Piston and the bitches cameos were all great.
"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.
Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.
For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.
Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.
All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”
