    Stryker

    I’m a drifter. 
    A man born to ride through this world alone.
    There used to be a time when I thought I was the rescuing type. I enlisted in the Marines and made it my duty—I was going to save lives.
    I was going to be a true American hero.
    But God had another plan.
    Or maybe Satan did.
    For everything I touch finds mortality.
    I’m no hero.
    I’m nothing.
    I’m a veteran biker, a former nomad who survived war only to live in hell.
    Now I ride with the Satan’s Knights of Brooklyn and I’m drifting into a different kind of chaos.
    The kind that revolves around a pretty girl with intoxicating green eyes.
    A girl who has the power to turn me inside out.
    A girl who doesn’t need anyone to rescue her because she’s her own savior.
    Until she’s not.
    But a man plagued by war and the devil inside him can never be her hero.

    Gina Spinelli

    Strong. Independent. Fierce. 
    They are the three things I strived to be. 
    But sometimes being successful can be lonely. 
    Sometimes a girl just wants to be a girl and have someone take care of her. 
    Maybe even love her. 
    Sometimes the strong become vulnerable. 
    Or worse, the victor becomes the victim. 
    Sometimes we lose control or in my case it’s stripped from you. 
    Defeated. Broken. Haunted. 
    They are the three things I have become. 
    In my darkest hour I admit defeat. 
    In my darkest hour I need one person. 
    I need him. 
    Stryker.

    Excerpt – “The ride”: Drifter – A Nomad Series Novel Book One © Copyright All Rights Reserved 2016

    That fucking skirt she’s wearing hugs her curves, leaving little to the imagination, and while the view is fucking amazing, she couldn’t be dressed any worse for the ride on the back of my bike. She knew it too and before she followed me out the front door of the swanky steakhouse, she sashayed those hips of hers to the bar. She asked the bartender for a steak knife, handed it to me and asked me to do what every motherfucker in the joint wanted to do—cut the skirt. I traded the serrated blade of the steak knife for the sharp blade I kept in my back pocket and sliced through the stitch behind her knees, extending the slit up the back of the skirt so she could straddle my bike. I’d tear the fucking thing off when it came time for her to straddle me, and just for kicks, maybe I’d cut it off her because fuck me, cutting through the stitching of her skirt had me hard as a rock.
    It took every ounce of control I could muster not to let my hands travel under that skirt and sink my fingers deep into her ass cheeks. Instead, I kept my hands on her hips, spun her around and stared up into her eyes. They might be my favorite part of her. After spending most of my time with her fighting not to take in every inch of her body, allowing myself only glimpses so I wouldn’t be distracted by her curves, I became pretty fucking hooked on those eyes. They were a bewitching shade of green.
    So fucking rare.
    So fucking unique.
    So damn pretty.
    They had the power to put me in a trance just like her hips that swayed back and forth like a pendulum.
    Fuck—everything about her made me want to forget who I am and learn who she is.
    The roar of my engine purrs, distracting me from her perfect face and I see the parking attendant pull my bike up in front of us. I hand him the ticket, pay the fee and turn around to Gina, watching as she bites down on her plump bottom lip and assesses my Harley.
    Throwing a leg over my bike, I grab the helmet dangling off one of the handlebars and offer it to her.
    “Still want that ride?” I ask when she doesn’t take the helmet and continues to stare at the bike. I don’t see any hesitation when her eyes lock with mine and a smile spreads across her sensual mouth—a mouth made for a man to dream of when he’s lonely.
    “You bet your ass I do,” she says, closing the distance between us as she braces her hand on my shoulder and straddles the bike. She fits the helmet to her head and adjusts the chin strap as I glance down at her five-inch spiked heels and shake my head. She didn’t belong on the back of a motorcycle, she belonged sprawled out on leather seats in the back of a limo with the divider rolled up and me between her legs.  
    We were night and day. She was beauty and class and I was nothing, a shell of a man left broken and tormented from war, fresh out of prison, an outlaw—yet, here we were and neither of us seemed to give a fuck.





    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    I think I fell in love with this book when I read the note from the author at the start. Not only did it feel personal, it was humorous, insightful, and gave ample warning of what was to come. I know that I was definitely in love with this story, and especially in love with the man who goes by the name of Stryker, by the end of the Prologue.

    This story was intense and it wasn't just about the suspenseful plot surrounding the MC Club and the mafia, although that part was intricate, detailed, hella fun, and scary AF. It was intense because of what had developed between Stryker and Gina. Every time he called her "pretty eyes" or told her "I've got you" or gave her "5 facts", I swooned right along with her.

    If you're looking for hearts and flowers, hoping to discover unicorns and rainbows, or searching for a light and easy read, you won't find that in this book. It's about a veteran suffering from PTSD who found his reason to live in Gina. It's about when she lost the light of life, he became her reason. It's about finding beauty in the deepest depths of ugliness. It's about surviving, conquering, and holding onto hope.

    In this book you'll find betrayal, anger, hate, and the nastiest of atrocities. You'll also find family, loyalty, understanding, forgiveness, beauty, hope, and the strongest of them all, love.
