Biker’s Librarian by Shyla Colt Blog Tour

Good girl. Bookworm. Wallflower. Juliette’s been called all of them, and never protested. But every now and then she wants to be daring and adventurous and sexy. A night out with the girls presents just the opportunity Juliette’s been looking for.

Undeniably sexy, Shooter hits all of Juliette’s hot buttons—and as a member of a local biker gang, rings more than a few of her warning bells.

One scorching-hot night of sex has Juliette coming back for more. Shooter is everything she’s ever daydreamed about. Before she realizes it, Juliette’s in deep. Having hot, exciting sex is one thing, but falling in love is something else entirely and an experience Juliette isn’t sure she wants. But Shooter isn’t the only dangerous man in Juliette’s life. As the past comes rushing back to haunt her and the future starts to turn dark, Juliette has to choose—fall back into old habits or trust her heart and the man who holds it.

Shooter undeniably hit all my hot buttons. I'm quite stumped on how to exactly rate this because I felt the story shifted twice. The first part of this book sounded similar to another book I while I read it, I had the feeling of déjà vu. It happens sometimes because I have read so many books and themes sometimes make me feel like I have already read every POV there is. Victoria Dahl had written one about a biker and librarian. This book however captured me and I really thought it was going great until the ex, Peter, showed up. First I felt like the author went a little too far out of the way to introduce this character only to not really follow through. Juliette and Shooter get out of town to avoid the ex and then next thing we know Peter is in jail. There was a lot of hype building him up, why not end it with him? Just wasn't how I expected it to go. Then the book ends with Shooter reconnecting with his brother. I know the synopsis included the ex but it took so long to really introduce him that it really felt like the book shifted instead of a continuation of the plot.

I started out really liking this book. It calls to all of us non stereotypical females: what would happen if we let loose and be the woman that's trapped inside for a few hours.

Juliette does this with her friends, go glam and go to a bar that they normally wouldn't dare step foot into. Once there, the hottest dude in the bar can't take his eyes off her. After he gets the thumbs up from her friends, Juliette lets her inner self enjoy him.

Romance is slow and easy, just what a girl needs when she's out of her depth, not in the he's a biker and I'm a librarian kind a way, but in the "I've been hurt before and I need time" way. Shooter understands her, wants her to be comfortable with him and his lifestyle, which makes Juliette want him even more.

What threw me off track was the Juliette's ex showing up about 3/4ths through the book. Yes, I knew he was coming, but honestly, it didn't go with the rest of the book. Peter's presence in the book didn't further Shooter and Juliette's story, but it may have been a plot device to further the series. I guess we will see in book 2.

Will I read the next book in the Lords of Mayhem? Probably. I really want to see more of Moose, Tiny and Boston along with Shooter and Juliette.

What happens when a sweet librarian and a hot biker meet? Lots of hotness! This wasn’t a really long book but it was packed with action, hot sex and a little drama. Juliette thought she would just have one night of fun with Shooter but Shooter had other plans. Bikers, crazy exes and good friends, this book has it all, get on and enjoy the ride! I loved the chemistry between Juliette and Shooter and the story was good too.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Biker/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is a good introduction to MC world terminology, as we view it from Juliette's viewpoint. She is certainly a newbie to that environment and culture, having hidden herself away from men after a terrible relationship with an abusive, deviant boyfriend. Fortunately, though her foray into dating presents her with a sexy, bad*ss biker called Shooter, he has a soft side for her. This is a sweet (for an MC story) romance, with some drama thrown in and a slight twist in the plot at the end. 

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration.

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household.

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
