Being fearless has never looked so good . . .
Aubrey Evans needs to get her life back on track after her father is indicted for embezzlement. All she has to do to hightail it out of small-town Tennessee is save up money for college tuition and steer clear of hard-muscled boys on motorcycles. Yet there's no ignoring someone like Zion. A knight in black leather, Zion looks like every bad idea she's been told to avoid, but she can't resist him. Whenever she's in trouble, he's there. Appealing as his rough exterior may be, it's the protective, principled man beneath who tempts her like crazy.
Zion knows Aubrey doesn't intend to stick around. She claims to want only friendship, but he senses there's a naughty girl hiding on the inside—one whose intense desires match his own. For now, he'll be patient and play by her rules. But he knows it's just a matter of time before he weakens her resolve.
As they join forces to figure out who's behind a local crime spree, it's clear that the danger goes deeper than Aubrey guessed. And when she needs someone tall, dark, and undaunted to keep her safe, Zion intends to be there—now and always.
I couldn’t find a trailer, so here’s a song!
A book that made me think SOA (Son’s of Anarchy)? Sold! I had to jump on the opportunity to read Undaunted by Ronnie Douglas (aka Melissa Marr) because I love me a bad boy read.
But what I thought was going to be a book about a badass biker turned out to be not so badass. I mean sure, Zion *swoon* (aka Killer) is one tough dude but not as tough as I would have liked him to be. He was pretty tame, but dannnng he was sexy. We did see little clips of just how tough this bad boy was, and don’t get me wrong, I enjoy seeing the softer side of these guys, I was hoping for more action!
There was mild teasing of action, and yes there is the big “fight scene” at the end, but it wasn’t explosive and didn’t’ carry me away. The whole Wolf pack seemed more like puppies to me.
Aubrey…well, she was quite the character. She was one girl who could NOT make up her mind. There was so much back and forth with her when it came to Zion that my head was literally spinning. It came to a point where I got so annoyed with her and the way she toyed with both Zion and Noah’s emotions that I wanted to quit reading. Aside from Zion and gran, the other characters were just okay. They didn’t leave a lasting impression on me.
The storyline had potential and there is a scene between Zion and Aubrey that prevented me from tearing my eyes away. Some of the events that transpired were predictable, and interactions between characters seemed a little forced. I had high hopes for this series, and am not yet ready to give up on it. I’d be curious to see what the next book has in store.
