Ruthless by Gillian Archer

Every girl needs a guardian angel—even if he wears black leather. In the first novel of her scintillating True Brothers MC series, Gillian Archer introduces readers to a sexy-as-sin biker...and the woman wild enough to tame him.

After dinner with the most arrogant man in the world, Jessica Miller is shocked when her blind date tries to maul her in the parking lot. Enter “Zag”: the brooding, bruising alpha male who jumps off his motorcycle and teaches the jerk a lesson he won’t forget. After getting one taste of a bad boy who lives on the edge, Jessica’s hooked. Zag’s willing to give her the ride of her life. But she needs to wrap her arms around his powerful chest and hold on—tight.

Zag knows firsthand that the True Brothers MC isn’t for the faint of heart. He only intends to show beautiful, innocent Jessica a few cheap thrills to satisfy her curiosity. But the more he lets her in, the more Zag comes to depend on her gentle touch to help heal the wounds that he’s been denying for so long. Now, a rival gang has set its sights on Jessica, and Zag must step up once again. He just hopes he can go the distance to protect the woman he loves.

Jessica Miller is looking at yet another of the men her mother has set her up with. He is handsome and looks like things might go somewhere with this guy. But when she sits down and he starts talking and it's all about him, she knows things can't end quick enough. When the meal was coming to an end, she was prepared to pay for half until douche-bag date says he can't find his wallet. She knows she needs to get away from him and quickly, but she lets him walk her to his car. When he becomes all handsy and won't take no for an answer, Jessica doesn't know what to do, he is too big for her to push away. So she screams and suddenly douche-bag is gone from her. She is relieved and when she sees her white knight, she can't believe her eyes. Turns out her white knight isn't a knight at all. He is a sexy bad boy biker and Jessica wants to buy him a beer and try to calm down after that ordeal.

Zag is part of the True Brothers MC, he knows he shouldn't be going anywhere with this lady that is out of his league. But he is drawn to her, so maybe one drink won't hurt. There is something between Jess and Zag almost from the moment they meet. Instant lust or attraction, but it seems to work for them. Until Jess witnesses one of Zag's brothers dealing drugs at her work. She calls out for Zag, but he isn't one of the guys. Now she has a pissed off biker after her because of what she saw. And she automatically thinks Zag is selling drugs too. So she tries to ends things with him, but he will not let her until he finds out what is going on and what has to be done.

Can Zag keep Jess safe from the drug dealing biker who wants her gone so he can stay out of prison? Will Jess be able to stay with Zag if he doesn't share his feelings or can she leave before she loses her heart? This is a first for me from Gillian Archer and I really enjoyed this story. It was funny, heartfelt, painful and Zag's past will break your heart, but it will show you why he is the way he is. Parts of the story seemed a little rushed to me and I would have liked more between the last chapter and the epilogue. Other than that, it is a really good story and I hope you enjoy it too.

I do so love MC reads and this was a great start to what I can only guess is going to be an incredible series!

Jessica Miller works the front desk at a local hotel and lives a relatively quiet life. Her mother is always pushing her on blind dates, wanting her to settle down with a nice man. On her most recent blind date, the man becomes extremely handsy in the parking lot afterwards and sexy biker, Zag, steps in to save her. Zag doesn’t have time to get involved with a crazy woman, but Jessica isn’t taking no for an answer and insists on buying him a drink to thank him. One thing leads to another and the two wind up spending the night together. Jessica heads back to reality the next morning thinking that it was just a quick one night stand, but once Zag’s had her, he’s decided he’s never letting her go. Especially when an ex-brother makes it his mission to bring harm to Jessica.

I love that this book maintained that rough alpha-male aspect that you expect with an MC romance while also being super sweet. I really enjoyed the dual points of view, getting a look into both minds always adds such a great twist to reading. The True Brothers MC series is going to be great and I can’t wait for book two!

Zag is the SAA of the True Brothers MC. He’s just heading to the local MC hangout when he hears someone screaming. Pulling the would be rapist off of Jessica was just the start to his interest in this woman who is probably too good for him. Jessica finds herself very intrigued by Zag...she loves the bad boys, but always from afar. Deciding that the "nice guys" aren't nice at all, she decides to invite her savior for a thank you drink and see where this might go. The story moves along well and we end up with a decently interesting, although somewhat formulaic MC story. Zag's character was written well, with his messed up past and a low self-esteem, he's a great tortured bad boy and he definitely holds up his end of the story. There is definitely some chemistry between Jessica and him, and several very steamy scenes between the two liven up the story well. I enjoyed the story.

Gillian Archer has a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering, but prefers to spend her time on happily ever after. She writes the kind of stories she loves to read—the hotter the better! When she’s not pounding away on the keyboard, she can be found surfing the couch, indulging in her latest reality TV fixation, or baking something ridiculously tasty (and horrible for her waistline). Gillian Archer lives in the wilds of Nevada with her amazing husband, gorgeous new baby, and two goofy dogs.
