An Ali Review: Happy Birthday by B.D. Roca‏

Standard

Rating: 5 stars out of 5     ★★★★★

HappyBirthdayLGJake Rushman is on the run, but it’s too late. He’s being tracked by an expert.

Motorcycle Club Enforcer Nick is tough, but even he has a conscience. It’s slowly destroying him, together with memories of his parents’ ugly deaths. Nick eliminates the guilty, but Jake Rushman is the innocent witness to a murder. It will be one kill too many.

Determined to find redemption, Nick plans to trade his life for Jake’s. Neither man counts on the fierce, powerful bond that the collision of their opposing worlds brings, and Jake refuses to let Nick sacrifice himself. He offers Nick the one thing he’s never had: hope.

But with a violent past tracking them, Nick might be forced to do the one thing he promised himself he never would—kill again.

This was super good! I admit I’m totally surprised. I had never heard of this author before and honestly all my attempts at reading biker books previously have gone horribly awry. But…..I’m no quitter so I decided to give this a try. It was nothing like I thought it would be. Despite it’s short length there is a lot of story here and there is great character development. I loved both of these guys and I was rooting for them all the way. The dialogue between them felt so real and there were some very emotionally touching scenes. There was no insta-love which I was glad about. It’s something I worry about in short stories but this author managed to make the relationship that unfolds between them seem totally believable.

The plot was fast paced and interesting and I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how things were going to work out for them. The sex scenes were hot but they did not overshadow the story or make this an erotica piece. There is nothing else by this author on Goodreads (I immediately ran to check that out). If this is her first attempt at writing I’m even more impressed. Can’t wait to see what she does next.

Cover art by Reese Dante: I like the cover. It’s a great cover that fits the plot and the narrator Nick really well.
