The heroine: Party planner Evie Kent

The hero: Biker/Former SEAL Jaxon ‘Rev’ Brady

The blurb: Jaxon Brady of the Hard Riders MC has sworn to protect Evie Kent from a rival gang. His hard muscles and black leather motorcycle boots are a sharp contrast to the girly dresses Evie wears for her successful party-planning business. Their instant attraction is magnetic, and their lust keeps them glued to each other’s side…but is it a dangerous distraction?

Standalone or series: Part of the Hard Riders MC series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: Dare is the newest imprint from Mills & Boon, launched for the February release. It’s touted as their sexiest yet… and they’re not joking!

Evie Kent’s younger brother, Rocker, is part of a motorcycle club and it turns out he’s been doing some pretty shady stuff that Evie knows nothing about – he’s been running drugs through Las Vegas for a Colombian cartel, but has also made the mistake of double crossing them. She runs a party planning business involving princesses and tries her best to protect her baby brother.

Jaxon Brady, known as Rev, is part of a rival MC that wants to shut Rocker down, because not only is he breaking the law, he’s running the drugs through their territory. Jaxon decides to check out Rocker’s sister, in part to use her as bait to get to Rocker and in part to keep her safe from the Colombians, who might kill her to get back at her brother.

Jaxon is attracted to Evie straight away, and Evie feels the same, especially since Jaxon is hot and she’s had a bit of a man drought. Before they know what’s going on, they’re all over each other, and Evie finds out that Jaxon’s body is not the only thing that’s big and hard – this guy has a twelve inch dick. I kid you not. So they can’t stop having sex with each other, but neither is sure they want a long term commitment – she has doubts because he’s in a rival MC and he’s not friends with her brother, and he has doubts because, well, he doesn’t do commitment.

Speaking of dicks, let’s talk about sex, baby. This book was R18+. The language and sex scenes were so incredibly graphic that I had to look at the cover a couple of times to check I was reading a M&B book! There’s oral sex, vaginal sex, and anal sex in this book, all of which are described in detail, and a lot of dirty language. If that sort of thing doesn’t float your boat, this imprint may not be for you, but since it floats mine and it has one of my favourite tropes in romance books – bad boy/good girl – I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more books as they come out; it appears there will be four new releases every month.


  1. […] review: We met Vik very briefly in book one of the series (and it was nice to see Rev pop up in this one), and so I’m guessing that book […]
