Winter’s Touch (The Last Riders #8) by Jamie Begley

wt jb bookcover

As president of The Last Riders, Viper’s only fear was losing his wife. After all, he had almost lost her once before.

As wife to the president, Winter lived in fear every day: fear that a club enemy would take Viper from her, fear that one of the club women would tempt him to stray, fear that she wasn’t enough of a woman for him. One thing Winter didn’t fear was risking everything to carry her husband’s child, even her health, yet Viper refused to take the chance.

Losing hope, Winter made one last ditch effort, determined to make Viper realize that some things were worth fighting for besides the club.

I give this book 4 stars!

 I liked this book as I did with all her others as it sucked me in from the start, I once again liked Winter and Viper but not so much Viper near the beginning especially when it came to the new club whore Sasha who kept trying to come between Winter and Viper especially when he kept putting Sasha first and humiliating Winter in the process, I felt for Winter when she saw Viper and Sasha together alot but a part of me did think that there was more to it and I was right and I liked that it was all to do with Viper secretly building a house for Winter and Sasha was the interior designer for it but I think Sasha will try and cause more trouble throughout the rest of the books.
I liked the pregnancy storyline and one part had me on the edge of my seat, I liked the parts with Killyama but yet again not so much with Train as I thought he was a little too slutty but not with Killyama and they didn’t really interact in this book so I’m curious to see how their book goes, I’m hoping in their story that he will have to fight for her and that she won’t give in too quickly.
I enjoyed the epilogues and I’m hoping there will be stories to do with the next generation.

Before leaving for college Ivy Sullivan took a chance and opened her heart to her close friend and town heartthrob, Ethan Rogue. His rejection had been swift and devastating. He didn’t need to tell her the reason for his rejection; she was the chubby girl, a fun girl to hang out with, but not girlfriend material.

One rejection – weight gone – now could she be the sexy woman she always dreamed of?

But Ethan’s rejection gave Ivy the motivation to reinvent herself and she comes back to her hometown with one goal in mind – revenge. She’s determined to show Ethan and his best friend Trey, both of whom were notorious for breaking the hearts of every woman they dated, what it feels like be treated as insignificant.

There’s only one problem … Ivy isn’t the only one who has changed.

Now both firefighters, Ethan and Trey have changed. They’re no longer the arrogant jocks they used to be, but sexy, caring men who are genuinely looking for a woman to share their lives with. And they have both set their sights on Ivy. While the old Ivy would have spent days agonizing over which hot guy she wanted this is no longer the case, because Ivy knows ….

She wants them both!

I give this book 2 stars!

I thought the h Ivy at the beginning was a little childish when Etahn knocked her back and I could understand why he did it in a way seeing as she was going to college and he wouldn’t see her and he wasn’t ready on settling down but even then I couldn’t see the chemistry between her and Ethan and I thought the story would begin more than just 15 months later because I thought the characters might delevop and grow a bit more but that is where the story begins.
Straight away from there I thought Ethan and Trey were very shallow and I would have liked to have seen Ivy be a little more curvy and I thought the plot she made up to seduce Ethan and then dump him was extremely childish, Personally I would have liked to seen her move on with someone completely different and then watch Ethan get jealous more than Trey.
The sex scenes were steamy but a bit unbelievable seeing as the three of them were complete novices to menages and they automatically knew what to do when the time came, I thought the scene where her so called best friend came in and admitted her little secret to Ivy was untasteful and I would have liked to have seen Ivy lay into her a little about that seeing as he bff knew her feeling towards Ethan and she goes and does that with him, so not good especially when she confronts Ethan about it and he makes excuses about it.
I liked the ending but I think it was more a hfn than hea, I would like to see a sequel to see where they go and if she puts a little weight on to see whether they are no longer shallow or not.
