Review: The Motorcycle Clubs: His Wild Desire, Off Limits, and Wanting It All

These are the first three novellas set in the Motorcycle Clubs series by Katie Wilde, Ruby Dixon, and Ella Goode

HIS WILD DESIRE by Ella Goode

I’m not supposed to want him, but I do.
I’m not supposed to need him, but I can’t stop.
I’m not supposed to love him, but my heart won’t listen.
Most of all? I’m definitely, under no circumstances, supposed to sleep with him.

hiswilddesireGrant “Wrecker” Harrison spent three years of his life locked away. He’s out and he’s tired of hiding. He wants everyone, even his father Judge President of the Death Lords MC, to know she’s his.

Chelsea Weaver loves Grant even though she knows its wrong. She knew it was wrong when she gave him her virginity and she knows it’s still wrong three years later…because Grant’s her stepbrother and Judge is the only father she’s ever known.

HIS WILD DESIRE is a 26,000 word novella. No cliffhangers.

I’ve had this series on my radar for sometime. After reading part one of Ruby Dixon’s Ice Barbarians, I wanted to try more of this author and what better than an MC romance series in bite-size novellas? And since I’m completely anal about reading in series order, I did exactly that.

I really enjoyed Ella Goode’s His Wild Desire. It’s a very sexy and dirty erotic novella which had the right amount of dirty sex and conflict to keep the tension going. The step-brother trope doesn’t bother me. It’s a fake taboo-like-trope. Step-siblings are not blood related and the few books I’ve read don’t have the hero and heroine growing up thinking of each other as siblings. Plus, erotica/romance menages have had biological brothers partaking in menages for years (never sisters. wow. I wonder why, says sarcastic me) so if I’m going to get my “eww” factor all raised (which I’m not), I’ll save it for those stories.

Chelsea was taken in by Judge after he married her mother. Chelsea’s mum bailed on her and Chelsea was taken under Judge’s wing. She lived with Judge alongside his teenager son, Grant. Chelsea had a huge smoking crush on Grant for years. She fantasized and masturbated over him until it all came to a dirty crescendo at a party when he took her virginity. They dirty smexed until Grant was sent to prison for manslaughter. With all the dirty sex there was also emotion and real likeability with Chelsea and Grant.

I liked that this novella stayed true to what you expect from an MC romance without getting really graphic. Chelsea and Gage resume their affair after he’s released but Chelsea is scared of Judge finding out about their relationship. She loved Judge but she also loved Gage. There’s a lot sex but it’s really good “a lot of sex.” There’s some light suspense when somebody tries to blackmail Chelsea and I loved how Gage reacted intelligently because of his parole. The ending left me laughing and I can’t wait to see if Judge gets his own story.

I give His Wild Desire a B

OFF LIMITS by Ruby Dixon

He shouldn’t touch me, but he does.
Late one night, in the middle of danger, he makes me feel things I shouldn’t.
And I know I shouldn’t want more…but I do.
Because hooking up with me? It could cost him his life.

offlimitsLucky…isn’t. In fact, she’s considered ‘off limits’ to the Bedlam Butchers because she’s caused them nothing but bad luck in the past. As a bonus? She’s also the president’s kid sister. Single and lonely? That’s Lucky’s way of life. Now, the Eighty-Eight Henchmen are harassing her and they’re out for blood.

Solo…is. In a club where pairing up with a brother to watch your back is mandatory, Solo still hasn’t gotten over his partner’s death two years ago. The club’s pressuring him to name a second Treasurer, but he has to trust that person in bed and out. And it’s damn hard for Solo to trust.

But when he rescues Lucky from the Eighty-Eight, maybe it’s time for Solo to find a partner, and time for Lucky’s luck to turn around…

OFF LIMITS is a 18,500 word novella. No cliffhangers.

*blurb taken from Goodreads*

Did I mention I’m hooked on Ruby’s Ice barbarians serial? While I liked this story, I don’t think it’s as good as Georgie and Vetek. Penny is known as Lucky thanks to an undeserved nickname surrounding some unfortunate events. She doesn’t feel part of the club and thinks of herself as an outsider despite her brother being co-president.

Solo keeps to himself since coming back injured from Afghanistan where his Bedlam partner died. He keeps to himself but on the night Lucky is almost attacked, Solo is definitely partaking in something that involves a willing and excited Lucky.

Lucy and Solo have an awesome titillating smex scene but by the middle I found myself a little disengaged and the story seemed to fly by really quickly. I don’t think Sola and Lucky were as developed as they could be. The conflict seemed very minimal compared to His Wild Desire. But just like in the first book of this boxset there’s good, dirty smexy times. I’m not sure if I’m interested in reading Kitty’s story with Gem and Dom (the co-presidents). It was kinda gross on the diner blowjob scene. What brother enjoys and is blatant about getting a blow-job in front of his younger sister? The jizz joke Kitty made with Lucky was also kinda way too much information.

While this story didn’t work for me quite so well as the others, I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

I give Off Limits a C+

WANTING IT ALL by Kati Wilde

He’s the one man I can never have, but the only one I crave…

wantingitallSaxon Gray has reason to hate me. He spent five years in prison after saving me from a brutal violation at the hands of a rival motorcycle club – and he paid for that rescue with his freedom. I’ve never been able to settle the debt I owe him…until now.

The menace of that old rivalry is flaring up again, and as president of the Hellfire Riders, Saxon is the one man who can keep me safe. But I want more than his protection. I want his heart.

WANTING IT ALL is a 24,000 word novella. No cliffhangers.

*blurb taken from Goodreads*

Wanting It All is a high-intensity sexy read and it’s my favourite out of the box-set. Jenny and Saxon have serious history of the non-sexual kind. Saxon is now the President of the Hellfire Riders. When he was nineteen he went to prison for killing a rider from the Eighty-eight white supremacist MC who attacked and sexually assaulted Jenny. Years have passed and things aren’t good for Jenny. Her father is dying and the Titans, her father’s MC chapter, aren’t as powerful as they once were. He worries about Jenny’s safety and comes up with an idea with Saxon of merging the two clubs together.

Saxon and Jenny’s lusty romance was smoking hot. From heavy petting sessions to a downright naughty scene in Jenny’s brewery, it delivered on all fronts with some suspense, dirty rocking sex, and a great set of secondary characters. Saxon is rough and tough and he’s my favourite out of the heroes. He’ll do anything to protect his Jenny. I loved that Jenny took her time deciding her choices and I loved she made Saxon wait until she was ready. Can’t wait to read more in this series and this couple.

B+
