Chrome: With a Heart Forged in Steele by Rie Warren Blog Tour

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. Not even Boomer Steele.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Note to readers: This book addresses the issue of domestic abuse.

The Tattooed Moose was no more than a noisy, loud, crowded wood shack with a tiny front porch just on the wrong side of the tracks in downtown Chucktown.


Maybe not. But the food was un-freakin’-believable.

It was a little quieter on the porch than in the bar, so I snagged the first empty table and got Rayce settled in her seat before I moved mine right next to her. Large outdoor heaters spaced between the tables fought off the January chill.

“This okay?” I reached for her hand and rubbed across her knuckles, smiling when I noticed the engine oil she hadn’t quite managed to scrub off.

“Is there beer and food?”

“Some of the best of both, I guaran-damn-tee it.”

“Then it’s okay by me.” Pulling my hand up to her face, she gently licked and kissed the center of my palm.

I kid you fucking not, the feel of her lips made my cock go full throttle just like that.

This softer side of Rayce was something else.

The seductive side?

Goddamn hypnotic and horny as hell.

I returned the favor of turning her on by licking and nuzzling her neck while we waited for our orders. I was bound and determined to give her that orgasm tonight. Hopefully in my bed, but I could work it out in the truck, or hell, even in the nearest deserted alley.

Rayce moaned under her breath when I bit down on her earlobe, and I decided that would do for now.

She looked at me with wide, dazed, dazzling eyes. She hadn’t even noticed the beers had arrived.

Job well done on my part.

I pecked her on the lips then lifted my glass.

She broke out of the sex-spell and muttered a low string of words I didn’t quite catch but went along the lines of evil man . . . all worked up . . . sits there smirking.

Then she clinked my glass with a, “Bottoms up.”

“We can get to that later too, if you want.” I took a glug of beer.

She choked on hers, hitting me on the shoulder.

After she managed a swallow without spewing beer across the table, she turned to me. “How can you just say stuff like that?”

“Because I’ve been thinking about it?” I shrugged.

“But I haven’t—” She shook her head and lifted her drink again.

I scooted closer and whispered in her ear, “Haven’t had a hard cock inside your perfect ripe ass?”

She shivered as my lips caressed her earlobe, and she swallowed hard.

“I’ll take that as a no.” Laying my palm on her thigh, I skimmed up it until I butted the center seam of her jeans. “Some women think it’s really hot, especially with the piercings. Really gets ’em going.”

Her nose skimmed my cheek as she turned her head. Her lips nearly collided with mine. “And just how many women have you done it with?”

“Well, that doesn’t matter, princess, because none of them mattered.” That may have sounded crass but it was true. I’d had my fair share of fucks—none of them lasted.

My lips brushed hers. “But you matter, make no mistake about it. It’s just a thought if you wanna give it a shot. I’d make sure you like is so much you come crawling back for more.” Sitting back, I crossed my arms over my chest, my big thighs spread in obvious invitation.

All for her and only her.

She stared at me, her cheeks growing more and more flushed until, groaning, she buried her head in her arms.

I gave a rough low laugh, reaching over to caress the back of her neck and the tiny buttercup tat.

She peeked out at me. “You’re a very naughty man.”

“Your naughty man.” I kissed her cheek and she sat up with a huff.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I love this series and every book is just as good as the one before it. Boomer is the head of the MC and Rayce is a feisty motocross racer. These two are so hot together. You can feel their chemistry and every emotion they go through. I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered, and wished the book was longer. Rayce has a crappy home life and Boomer wants to help her and take her away from it all. They start off platonic but the chemistry is off the charts and that doesn’t last long. We even get to see several characters from previous books. There is a little angst but not too much, it was just a great book and I can’t wait for the next one.

Characters: Well written and believable
Sex: Oh yeah!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This has been my favorite book of the series so far! Boomer is the president of Retribution MC and throughout the years he’s watched his brothers fall in love but never believed it would happen for him. He’s holding onto guilt from his past and uses random hookups as an attempt to wash away this guilt to no avail. Enter Rayce, she’s part of the Redemption MC, a sister club to Retribution. Rayce races dirt bikes and is a mechanic, obviously making her a bit of a tomboy which is where the attraction for Boomer begins. She’s also a bit wild with blue hair, a smart mouth, and a sassy attitude. She’s highly respected by the men in her MC and this equals a heavy amount of protection for Boomer to deal with.

I really enjoyed their tale, both Rayce and Boomer are dealing with tough situations/secrets from their past making it difficult to commit to a relationship. I loved Rayce, she is a great heroine with a fantastic sense of humor. I caught myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions while reading. I can’t wait to see where the author goes next with this.

Boomer Steele is the president of Retribution MC, even though other than partying and riding in formation there aren't many MC things happening in this one, it's more about his working at Chrome and Steele. Boomer sets his sights on Rayce. She's tough and feisty but under all of that she's a broken woman. Will she let Boomer in enough to help fix her?

I am so happy this series continues. I am loving the characters and the depth that has been created with them. The combination of characters from Retribution MC and Carolina Bad Boys is a wonderful thing. I like the overlap with Hunter's book. I love seeing the proposal and wedding from a different point of view. This is one of those series you can never tire of given all the different aspects – it's not just the MC life, there is so much more. Can't wait for the next one.

Great MC series! Rayce and Boomer are panty combustible together. This is one of those books that start off with two characters with off the chart chemistry...and you know this is going to get good just by how they interact with each other. Rayce puts up a good wall between her and Boomer, she doesn't want to let him in but he is so charming and never lets up. I really enjoyed the banter between them and the erotic scenes. Very little drama in this book and I really enjoyed it. Four stars!

Although this is one of a very good series, it is definitely possible to read it as a standalone – you will miss some references, but it will not detract from the story.

I am a fan of MC books, even if sometimes I think they reinforce too many stereotypes – no danger of that here – with Rayce hiding herself in the garage along with the boys and covering up her private life and insecurities as best she can. Boomer and she may have been dancing around each other for a while, but she fears she is not good enough. As things unfold – in the hottest of ways – these two manage to forge a way through the past and into a much brighter future. Ms. Warren takes control of the reader's emotions, ensuring an intensely emotional ride, and the need for a box of tissues!

A most satisfying read – thank you.

Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavor, the Carolina Bad Boys series, is fun, hot, and southern-sexy.

A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling.

Rie's work has been called "edgy," "daring," and "some of the sexiest smut around."
