ARC kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.



Every girl needs a guardian angel—even if he wears black leather. In the first novel of her scintillating True Brothers MC series, Gillian Archer introduces readers to a sexy-as-sin biker . . . and the woman wild enough to tame him.

After dinner with the most arrogant man in the world, Jessica Miller is shocked when her blind date tries to maul her in the parking lot. Enter “Zag”: the brooding, bruising alpha male who jumps off his motorcycle and teaches the jerk a lesson he won’t forget. After getting one taste of a bad boy who lives on the edge, Jessica’s hooked. Zag’s willing to give her the ride of her life. But she needs to wrap her arms around his powerful chest and hold on—tight.

Zag knows firsthand that the True Brothers MC isn’t for the faint of heart. He only intends to show beautiful, innocent Jessica a few cheap thrills to satisfy her curiosity. But the more he lets her in, the more Zag comes to depend on her gentle touch to help heal the wounds that he’s been denying for so long. Now, a rival gang has set its sights on Jessica, and Zag must step up once again. He just hopes he can go the distance to protect the woman he loves.


As much as I tried to "get into " the story, the storyline was too rushed for my taste. The writing was too fast and chopped . Almost the entire book is about keeping Jessica safe and finding Preacher, then Preacher appears , Jess ends up in the hospital and the next thing you know Preacher is being taken care of...by Zag alone. .Plot was somewhat predictable.

This was just one of the times where I had the feeling that I'm missing a part of the story.

About the characters... Jessica is too easy and too desperate. Now she is almost getting raped , the next minute she jumps in bed with the big bad biker ( whom she just met like 10 minutes ago) .

Another thing that irks me - if this is the first book from the True Brothers MC series , Zag and Jessica's story...basically we don't know anything about Zag, about his past, childhood , just bits and pieces here and there. Nothing solid to make the reader "feel " the character.  We know more about Jessica than we know about Zag. If you are going to dedicate a book  to a certain character but keep him in the shadows , under a veil of mystery, then I don't see the point of it.  
I had the feeling that the story was more about Jessica , I connected with her better than with Zag. 

And the MC....well the MC....

Overall the book was ok. It gave me the feeling  that this was the author's first book about an MC and I know that she can do better than this. I hope that her writing and storyline will improve with the following True Brothers books.
