*** This book is intended for those 18 years or older due to strong, mature, sexual content that is dark at times. ***

“Since when are bikers the good guys?… They’re filthy as SIN.”

Dawson McCade is used to having to fight for everything. He fought hard for his position as the President of one of the most ruthless, bad-ass, outlaw motorcycle clubs… the Riverdale chapter of the SLAYERS, MC.

He’s prepared to fight with everything he has against the newest threat to his organization… the Conquistadors drug cartel as it begins to move in on his club’s territory.
One thing he’s not used to fighting, though, is against himself. Ever since the moment he first laid eyes on the innocent, angelic, Molly Donovan, his world’s been thrown upside down.
He’s a killer, an animal, with dark demons buried deep. Demons that he’s used to help fuel the drive that’s gotten him to where he is in life. He’s not looking for redemption, he’s not looking for temptation… hell, he IS the temptation.

Molly, his “angel”, brings a whole new threat to Dawson’s life. One that can’t be fought on the outside like everything else he’s used to. She’s going to cause a war within him, one that’s more dangerous and terrifying to him than the bullets that the Conquistadors are sending his way.

The Slayers MC are soldiers, fighters. Dawson’s going to need every single bit of those things to lead both his club and his heart to victory.

*This is a BRAND NEW series by Tara Oakes, authoress of the Kingsmen MC series.

My Review

I love a good mc read and First Ride met my expectations and then some! Dawson is all alpha and honestly, kind of a cocky jerk, but as the President of the mc, you need to be. He oozes authority. I like when the bikers are a good mix of outlaw and guy with a good heart. Too much of the latter for me just doesn’t work. And Dawson…he works.

Molly is amazing. She’s strong, she’s determined, and she has no idea what to do when she meets Dawson.  I love that she wasn’t head over heels at first. She was guarded, and with good reason. When she finally stops fighting the inevitable, the sparks fly.

The story itself is fast paced, just gritty enough to keep me interested, and even though it was a fairly quick read, the characters are developed enough to keep you wanting more of their story.

I give First Ride a solid 4 stars and cannot wait to find out what happens next!
