Possession by Violetta Rand

The Sons of Odin motorcycle club is back! Violetta Rand follows up Persuasion (“A seriously sexy thrill ride!”—Stacey Kennedy) with a sizzling short novel that takes passion to the brink of chaos...and beyond.

Ambitious young attorney Tina Bethel doesn’t have time for commitment, but she wouldn’t pass up some hot, no-strings sex with the right guy—like Sons of Odin officer Vincent Ramos. Six feet, five inches of solid muscle and biker masculinity, he revs Tina up like no man ever has. The trouble is, every time they get physical, Tina’s cravings are never quenched—because Vincent always pumps the brakes before the point of no return.

With her sexy body packaged in a short skirt, Tina’s enough to drive any man crazy. Vincent isn’t sure how he’s resisted her shameless come-ons. He just knows that if he gives in, he won’t be able to stop—and after two failed marriages, he can’t afford any more broken promises. But when a disgruntled client of Tina’s starts stalking her, Vincent has to make up his mind about his true feelings—fast. Because if he’s willing to put his body in the line of fire, he should be able to risk his heart in the name of love.

The second book in the Sons of Odin MC series, Possession was even better than the first in my opinion! I really fell hard for Vincent! He was the perfect possessive, alpha male with a broken heart of gold. I found him likable and relatable while still being edgy and an outlaw, a perfect combination for my favorite leading guy. Tina is a wonderful leading lady, independent, strong and smart. She has just the right amount of sass to keep Vincent on his toes while he's unwittingly falling head over heels. Add in a weird, stalker client of Tina's law firm and you've got yourself a fine read! Vincent will do what he has to in order to keep Tina safe! I really enjoyed this book from cover to cover. Tina & Vincent take their time coming together and the buildup is worth the time!

Valentina Bethel is an attorney and missing her best friend, who is off on vacation with her new husband, Lang, and his sisters. So Tina goes to a local bar and when her creepy client shows up, he doesn’t take no for an answer. She leaves and creepy guy follows her. Instead of leading him to her home, she goes to the Sons of Odin MC where Vincent will take care of things. After five months of not seeing Vincent, Tina is still attracted to him and can’t help herself. While Vincent is trying to keep his heart safe, he has had two women hurt him in the past and he is a little scared to let anyone in. But he will protect Tina because she is Lang’s wife’s best friend and he is attracted to her. Creepy guy, aka Kline Barnes, is still following her, visiting her office, sending flowers, all while Tina is telling him she is not interested. When Kline tells her that he will tell her boss, which happens to be Kline’s uncle, that she came on to him for his money, Tina is stunned and not sure what to do. She talks to Vincent and he tells her that he will take care of it, but she wants to try her way first. Can Tina stop Kline from stalking her? Will Vincent handle Kline his way? Can Tina persuade Vincent to give in to a wild night together? Or will they both lose their hearts in the process?

I am enjoying this series, it is funny, suspenseful, sexy and HOT! It is a tame MC story compared to some stories out there, but sometimes I love a change of pace and this series is working for me. I can’t wait for more, the next book is Property of J.T. and I am looking forward to his story.

I really enjoyed this read, though it’s not your typical MC romance, it’s definitely a lot softer than I would have liked – it lacks that rough, bada**ness that MC romances usually have. This is the first book I’ve read in the series, but I didn’t feel I was missing anything having not read book one.

Tina is an attorney and she’s been assigned a case representing her boss’s rich nephew, Kline Barnes. Kline thinks that his money means he can have whatever he wants and he’s set his sights on having Tina. He becomes fixated and after Tina declines his attempts at asking her out, Kline begins to stalk her. Vincent has been in two failed marriages already and doesn’t plan to try again anytime soon. He runs into Tina in a bar and the attraction is immediate, though Vincent fights it. When Vincent realizes the threat against Tina, he comes to her rescue and appoints himself her bodyguard, with the explicit rule to himself not to let her wind up in his bed…

I would definitely call this a sweet romance, though Vincent puts on a tough exterior at the clubhouse, he’s a complete softie at heart and that really shines through in this book. I love all the twists and turns, it definitely kept the book moving along at a quick pace and kept me from wanting to put it down. I look forward to the next book in the series!

As the second story in the Sons of Oden series, I think I may have liked it better than the first. With some mention and a little interaction from the main characters from the first installment, Possession can read as a standalone. I still feel it's a little tame for an MC read, but the characters are well written and I really enjoyed their chemistry.

Having read and enjoyed book one in the series, I was looking forward to the next installment. I enjoy MC stories, and would say that this is in the less violent category – no surprise given its president and his background. I rather like the softer approach, but if you assume that MC equals harsh, violent and gritty, and choose it for that reason, then this may not be hard enough for you.

Here we see the outwardly rough and tough Vincent go all soft over Tina. It takes some time and a nasty case of a stalker to get him to take a risk on his feelings – but the journey is all the sweeter for the reader. It’s an explosively sexy destination, that's for sure! It was good to catch up on the leads from Persuasion, and how life is treating them, but you could read this alone and still enjoy the story.

I look forward to the next book in the series.
