May be spoilers:

So with this anthology, there are 27 stories. So, I’ll be doing them separately/together. A little different and longer than my normal, so will see how it goes. I didn’t read every story, as some didn’t interest me, but what I did read, they are here.

 

Viking by Sapphire Knight is part of the Oath Keepers MC series. I’ve never read them. So Viking is about Viking and his Princess. It has 2 chapters. They’ve been married for years, but they are having problems since she had a miscarriage and he blames himself. Little violence in the beginning that I’m not a fan of.

He’s drunk and in the beginning, it really looks like he’s cheating and yeah, I’m not a fan of it, so I almost skipped this story, but keep reading and it gets better.

Just a really short look into their life and them working things out. Has a really hot sex scene.

It was good, not sure I’ll read any of the other series, but wasn’t too bad. 3.5/5 stars.

 

Hatch by Piper Davenport. It’s really just a little epilogue that goes with Hatch and Maisie’s story which is Road to Peace. This has 5 chapters.

We see that Hatch is arrested after his identity has been stolen. Maisie is pissed and scared,but she has the MC helping. He’s in a week and they finally get him out. I do believe that this part is in their story too. I loved it though, just a short little catch up with one sex scene. ⅘ stars

 

Abound Wedding by Ryan Michele goes with the Ravage MC Bound series. I haven’t read the series. I just may have to read this series sometime. This has 12 chapters. Each chapter has a different characters point of view. It’s kind of like an epilogue for the series. 2 couples get married.It was awesome and I’ll definitely be finding time to read the series. No drama. One steamy part, that was it. 5/5 stars

 

Gust by Esther E. Schmidt. It is the 6th in the Lost Valkyries MC series. To be honest, this story is the reason I bought this book. I’m a huge fan of this author. I do recommend reading the series in order. This story has 10 chapters and an epilogue and is about Gust and Paisley.

They were neighbors when they were younger and haven’t seen each other in 9 years.

Paisley’s brother calls Gust to help her cause he got her into some trouble with his MC. Him and Ronin stop a couple of bikers who are trying to rape her. Her shirt is just ripped, so it’s not descriptive.

Everything moves super fast as he claims her right off the bat. He does say some hurtful stuff, but is sorry right after.

I really loved it. No ow/om drama except for the bad guys which was great. I loved this story. No separations, no cheating. Hot sex scenes, slight spanking on one. Great read and a great addition to the series.

Epilogue is 20 years out, they are happily married with a set of girls. I loved it. Couldn’t ask for a better story. 4.5/5

 

Duke by Jack Davenport. Has 9 chapters and is about Pearl and Duke. It’s a Burning Saints prequel. I haven’t read the series.

We see Duke’s first introduction to the Burning Saints. I do love Pearl and Duke’s first meeting, it was cute. He fell at first sight.

There is talk of rape as Duke tells Pearl about his past.

She was a virgin. There was one short, hot sex scene. It was cute. No real drama. 3.5/5

 

VIPER by Lilly Atlas. It has 6 chapters.I wasn’t really a fan of this at first as his father grabs her breast and is planning on selling her as she’s a virgin and they want money. Viper falls when he sees her and he’s not down with selling women. So he protects her and leaves with her. It’s ok. A short little sex scene. Good little story.  3.5 stars

 

Spade by Harley Stone is a short story from the Dead Presidents MC series which I’m a huge fan of. It just has 4 chapters and is about Spade and Jessica.

I think Spade should be read after Wasp as Carly’s past catches up and Jessica is in the middle.Some of it we read in Wasp.  It was just a short little blip with Spade and Wasp saving her and her and Spade getting together. It was still good. 4/5

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out. You can get it on Kindle:
