Review of Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty #2) by Jackie Ashenden


“Make It Hurt”


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 189 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

The Texas Bounty series heats up as a female bounty hunter goes toe-to-toe with the tantalizing biker who never stopped loving her.

Nora Sutcliffe enjoys having tough guys at her mercy—preferably in handcuffs. The best fugitive recovery agent in the business, Nora always gets her man. But when her latest pursuit leads her to a notorious biker hangout, she’s reunited with “Smith”: the one man who was too hot for Nora to handle. Once upon a time, she was a rich girl and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now she needs his help, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

Eight years ago, Smith let a pretty little Texas debutante break his heart. He picked up the pieces, went to hell and back with the army, then rode out of the darkness with a gang of outlaws at his back. The last thing he needs is a blast from the past like Nora, who has reinvented herself as a gun-toting badass with the stones to challenge him in front of the whole club. But if she thinks Smith will give up one of his brothers for a single night of pleasure, she’s in for a rude awakening.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Nora Sctcliffe has made a name for herself as a bad ass bounty hunter. She always gets her target. That is until her newest pursuit is protected by a motorcycle club. When she goes to a bar looking for him she discovers her past is staring her in the face. And not only does her body react unwillingly but he just happens to be the President of the MC that will not let her have her way.

Smith loves his club. They are his family and he will not let anyone come between that. Especially the one girl that broke his heart all those years ago.  He tries to strike a deal with Nora. One night in his bed and he will hand over what she wants. What he doesn’t understand is that one night will never be enough.

Nora and Smith have a past. She was the little rich girl that wanted to get her hands on the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. But when her dad found out about the relationship she did not stand behind Smith and defend him. Smith holds a grudge against the woman that hurt him and feels he need to get this woman out of his system. Maybe a night with her will cure his itch.

Smith made a promise to Nora that is she spends one night with him he will hand over the person that she is looking for. What Nora does not know is that is one promise that Smith has no intention of keeping.

This was a good read however I felt like the grudge that Smith was holding over Nora went a little far at times. He used it as control for what he wanted. Nora put the past behind her and anytime Smith was around her body betrayed her. The chemistry was great between them. They want to be with each other but their jobs could interfere with their happiness.

My Favorite Moment: You have to love a woman that will pull the trigger when she says she will!
