METTLE cover


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?



My Thoughts:

Tucker “Country” Abrams loves being part of an MC.  He likes his freedom and having tail whenever he wants.  He’s also a little full of himself and something of a jerk when it pertains to women.  Talia “Bruce” McKinnon is on assignment and she may have gotten more than she planned for.  Talia is walking a fine line between doing her job and being a woman.

Be warned that the sex scenes are graphic.  But the author still leaves some things to your imagination.  This story is written in a way that you can almost imagine that the Spartan’s actually exist as well as their enemy.  She also shows that not all members of an MC come from a shady background.  This is a book that stands on its own merit.  You don’t have to read Grit in order to enjoy Talia and Tucker’s story.  But if you want to know more about the MC’s enemy and know more about the Spartan’s then I would go back and read the first book.

If you’ve never read Ms. Valentine’s work before this series would be a good place to start.  She doesn’t bog any scene down or get off point.  There is some violence but not as bas as some that you may see in the movies or on TV.   You try to take your time in reading her story but before you know it you’ve come to the end.  The only disappointment I couldn’t find a hint anywhere as to if we’ll see a book three in this series.

GRIT Cover


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.
