After finishing 'Razer's Ride', I was equal parts intrigued and disgusted by Ms. Begley's 'The Last Riders' series. This is definitely not a MC romance series for everyone. The members of The Last Riders, both male and female, are completely sexually uninhibited. Exhibitionism, voyeurism, ménage, and virtually anything you can think of sexually, are commonplace in their clubhouse. The club hosts a Friday night party, which is essentially a big orgy, not that they seem to restrain themselves any ...more

Viper’s Run is book two in Jamie Begley’s The Last Riders series. I enjoyed the first book in the series, Razer’s Ride, despite some inconsistencies and holes in the plot. In this second installment, Ms. Begley has definitely come to the table to play. Her writing has improved resulting in a more cohesive plot and the book simply flowed better than the first.


Winter Simmons is a high school vice principal who leads a very rule based life. Her profession has led to a very straight and na

This book was an epic fail for me and I'll try to explain the reasons why. But please take into account I'll not write about the book as such, but of my reaction to it.

But first, I will start with what I consider facts, rather than opinion, as it's not only my pet peeves that caused the rating.

The story needs an editor with experience.

--Writing: Here we have an author who doesn't "know" the difference between the adjective conscious and the noun conscience. (Quote: "It had to be your guilty co
I'm really sorry, I tried to like this book, it is just hard, when it repeatedly includes scenes that are supposed to be hot, but only leave me with the awkward feeling that the heroine has been violated and disrespected (mostly by the hero, but also by all the others who don't take her pleas for help seriously). I am a little shocked how many women think that this book is hot... There are really good books out there if sharing and multiple partners are your thing, but there's a difference betwe ...more

"When she had thought he was faithful to her for those two years, he had fucked anything that crossed his path"

What a guy!

And on top of all that, they have to put up with the fact that the whores in the club have the dates of when their men screwed them tattooed on their bodies and even though these fuckwits know that it hurts their women, they DO NOT GIVE A SHIT about their feelings. They just expect the

Read it in the hopes that we'd get a hero possessive enough to not want his heroine partaking of the club kink...


I really, really don't like the club orgy/sharing/voyeur stuff... and I find the hero's coercive behaviour (and the subtle threat of my way or the highway) to get the heroine involved really creepy.

The guys still having this deep seeded need and desire to 1) still REGULARLY watch other women have sex - other women that they've previously had sex with themselves and women who are

Tsk. Give me Thor's hammer and I'll pound the heroine's silliness out of her.

Viper’s Run is the second book to The Last Riders Series; the first being Razer’s Ride. This book keeps in step with plenty of the debauchery and promiscuous sex as the first book.

Viper is the club president of The Last Riders. For 2 years he has been playing the part of respectable businessman, Loker James, to determine who killed his brother Gavin. During this time, he forged a relationship with Winter Simmons, the prim and proper high school principal, to integrate himself into the community

this book is just...wrong. In sooo many ways that I dont even know how to elaborate. I can't belive that anyone would find mane characters sexy or for that matter anything sexy in this book. I would have to have a lobotomy if I kept reading it. Just blah..

Doormat heroines, actually really stupid heroines..and I would even get passed it if the sex scenes weren't totally lousy too..I'm into kinky sex, Im not some prude..but these women and this club is ridicilous, and not kinky,just weird and tota

I have to say this book is better then the first in the sense that this female lead seemed to have a lot more pride and backbone.......until she suddenly realised she still loved him and confessed her love and then became a doormat!! Viper was such an ass come on we know the club is about sex mostly but for him to almost gloat that he was with other women all night the night something happened to Winter was just in bad taste. I did not feel love from Viper towards Winter more like guilt and seri ...more
If you're looking for a real biker romance, this is not it. It's just plain silly. I had to skim through the last 30% to finish.

Gotta admit, this book - I didn't like it. But like I often find with the books I read I just had to know the ending. So, I skipped large pieces of it and "read" the book till the end. However, I just couldn't get into it.

I like MC books - like a lot; that one though it was unfortunately not worth the time spent reading it. I don't know if it was the wonky story, the characters I just couldn't seem to start liking - at all - or the writing style but this book just didn't do it for me.

(view spoil
Underwhelming. Stilted prose. No erotic connection between the hero and heroine.

The excerpt was the best part of this book.

This is a part of a multipart MC series. It's quite a mix of good and bad.

Oh and it had a trigger I find annoying- the non-virgin heroine who never had a big O....Blech!

DNF @ 34%. I couldn't, I just could not. And when I'm studying and in the mood for cotton candy, that's really saying a lot. I even finished Reaper's Property last week and enjoyed it - which is saying a lot considering I had already given up on that twice before due to ridiculousness.

I was skeptical so I started with the second book so I'm sure I missed some of the plot of the other characters, but - BUT - Giant enormous BUT - I really could not get on board with anything Viper and Winter do.

I'm really surprised. I thought the sequel would be about Shade and Lily.

After reading the book:

3.5 Stars

Even though this was not Shade and Lily's story; their scenes were still my favorite. I feel like the author is building up to their story, which I appreciate, but I kind of need that story NOW.

Viper's Run is good; in some ways it is better than Razor's Ride. Viper's POV helped to humanize his character. We saw his internal struggles as he tried to win Winter over and deal with his own gu

Okay, I admit I gave the first book in this series one star. The only reason I gave this one a shot was because I was looking for an audio book and the synopsis made Winter sound like she had more backbone than Beth did in "Razer's Ride". Not the case! This one was even worse, if possible. Winter is badly beaten and has to have rehab to get better. She wants to go home and have someone stay there and help her but Viper decides otherwise. He tells her friend Beth to bring her to the clubhouse ins ...more

Terrible. I didn't finish it. I did not realize the hero's lifestyle was to share his woman with his biker brothers. I didn't like their "parties" and I especially didn't like how he lied to her for 2 years.

He was busy getting laid while the woman he supposedly loved was getting almost beaten to death in a parking lot.

Not my type of book at all.

Absolute crap, run away as quickly as you can. Illogical and rapey are the biggest sins. I'll stop now before I get really mean, even if it were free the damage it does to your brain would make it a bad deal.

Yes, I am a glutton for punishment

Generally I would not continue a series after such an abysmal start but I felt like there was potential here and decided to see if Viper's Run would be better. And it was - marginally. It brought the series up from horrible to just okay. The editing was better but the writing was still choppy, awkward, and stilted. With better editing the series would at least be palatable; with better writing it could be phenomenal. Unfortunately with brilliant authors like M
lover-of-good-books book 2 wasn't any better than book 1. I mean out of all the likely suspects, the deputy almost killed her and for what? Because she kissed a biker. Really?

Also ..

“The School Board will return to a closed session and take a vote. We will notify Ms. Richards within the next forty-eight hours of our decision.”
Winter sat back down in her chair.

“Is that three days?” Crazy Bitch asked

“Yes,” answered T.A.

Okay...the last time I checked 48 hours was two days.

Weak heroines, asshole heroes, non consent masked as dominance, not enough groveling.

If this were dark erotica I could deal with the assholery (yep, I made that word up) and non consent because it isn't being paraded as love. Well, it isn't at first. But I can't deal with it in an erotic romance and see the heroine as anything other than a doormat.

I had a very hard time following some of the story line. It seemed parts that were important to the scene were missing and left me going,"huh"? The story could have been great but the writing style just left me confused sometimes. Not one I would recommend.

I have to say I'm really disappointed. This book had lots of potential but didn't live up to it, and I didn't think it was particularly well written. There were several "disconnects" in the story. I expected so much more.

Sigh. I've tried to give this series a chance but I guess it's not just my cup of tea. I'm on a roll lately, reading just about any MC themed book that catches my interest. This series has pretty decent ratings and reviews so I said why not and started reading the first book. But I ended up not finishing it, I just did not like the characters so after several pages I called it quits. I read this books's blurb and I really liked it. But in the end I got so annoyed reading this book, I also did no ...more

Winter may be the most obnoxious main character I've ever come into contact with. Always jumping to conclusions and then giving in with no explanation, and always so bitchy! I'm hoping we don't hear much from her in the rest of the series

The female protagonists in this series have no back bone, no will power whatsoever. Just once, I wish the girl turns the guy down and actually make him work for her affections. Winter totally got steamrolled and she let it happen. So annoying.

I've read the previous book in this series as well, and, as with that book, this book suffers from a HUGE amount of grammatical errors, typos, incorrect use of words, etc. The author even mixes up the names of two of the main characters, for goddess's sake, right in the middle of the book! One of the things that drove me to distraction is that she uses the word 'conscious' to mean 'conscience'! I could ignore that if it happened once (well, not really. It's confusing!), but all the time? The sto ...more
