Book Description/Synopsis:  

Gage…

I don’t fuck girls who work for me, but as soon as Amelia turns those big green eyes on me I know she’s trouble. I can’t keep my hands off her, and the almost-but-not-quite-sex we share in the kitchen is the hottest thing I’ve ever had. Except she calls it quits, before we’ve even started.

Instead of moving on, she’s all I can think about and that’s bad news. I’m breaking all my rules for her, and don’t even care.

Until I find out who she is and what she really wants. She’s after payback, but there’s no way she’s going to get it. No way in hell…

Mindy’s Review:

**I received this book free from Netgalley – Entangled Publishing LLC on behalf of Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.**

Gage Reynold is a member of the Viking Bastards MC.  His family has been part of the club since his Grandfather. The club always comes first. Gage runs a bar called Odin’s and only has one rule. Never sleep with the help. But when a new bartender comes in he cannot keep his eyes or hands off of her. That is until she sets the rules.

Amelia is out for some payback. She is getting her one chance to get close to the MC that killed her father. She only knows the facts that her mother told her ten years ago about her father’s death. Her father treated her like a princess and she just wants the revenge to make her feel better. Working at Odin’s will bring her closer to the man she is after. When she finally meets him and lays her eyes on him something else starts to turn inside of her.

Gage and Amelia are highly attracted to each other instantly. Amelia is starting to forget why she is there and decides she does not want any part of talking down the club. She believes Gage is a good man and their club is not doing anything wrong. When Gage finds out who is snooping around and why he goes into a fit of rage. Amelia is there to set him up and all he was doing was falling in love while it happened.

This is the second book in the Vikings Bastards series. I really enjoyed reading this Gage and Amelia’s story. Even though there is bad blood within their families love always takes a front seat.

Excerpt:

We sit in the back row, and as far as I know that’s for one reason only. The place is half empty, and it’d be too easy to slide my hand under her sweater and play with her gorgeous tits. My dick stirs and I grit my teeth. It can’t be good that I have a permanent hard-on whenever she’s near me.

I watch her from the corner of my eye as she digs into her popcorn. The lights dim and it’s real hard not to sling my arm around her shoulders, but I have the weird feeling she expects me to—just to prove that I can’t keep my word.

She’s only a chick, and the only time my word is everything is when it comes to my brothers. If Amelia wasn’t interested, she wouldn’t be here with me now. We can spend the next ninety minutes making out like a couple of horny teens, and I won’t think any less of myself for breaking my word.

Or I can be a fucking martyr and call her bluff.

When the movie starts, she wriggles in her seat and rests her arm next to mine on the armrest. Is she doing it on purpose? We’re barely touching but it’s like an electric charge zaps through my body.

This is going to be the longest ninety minutes of my life.

***

When we finally leave the movies it’s late afternoon and dark, which is a relief. Not that I’d expect to see any of my brothers hanging around, but I guess I’m paranoid. As we reach the bike, Amelia bumps her shoulder against my arm.

“You didn’t fall asleep. I’m impressed.”

I shrug. “I’ve seen worse.” No way will I admit the movie wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. It’s still way too early to take her to a club, but I’m in no hurry to let her go, even if she isn’t going to put out at the end of the night. Guess we could get something to eat.

Before I can figure out whether I’m ready to ask her that, because movies and eating out in one evening is kind of full-on, she takes the helmet and hugs it, like it’s a shield.

“Well, thanks for inviting me. Can you take me back to my car now?”

What the fuck? Is that it?

“Sure.” I’m pissed off and don’t know why. I’ve had some shit ideas in the past, but taking Amelia out has got to be one of the worst. If this is dating, then they can keep it and I’ll stick to my easy no-need-to-think-about-it hookups.

“Only, I need to get home and freshen up before my shift starts at Odin’s.” She pauses for a couple of seconds, as if she’s letting that sink in. Christ, I’ll never understand how chicks’ minds work. “That’s if the offer’s still open?”
