"Riding on Instinct" is a hot, quick, easy to follow read, and sometimes you need to read a little brain candy--it's good for what ails you. There isn't an overabundance of characters to keep track of, the plot is pretty simple and straight forward--nothing to really tax the mind--and the H/H were one lusty but likable couple. The combination of bikers, strippers, federal agents, and drug smuggling bad guys made for one enjoyable, fast paced, sexy read!

5 stars – Romantic Suspense/Erotica

"Riding on Instinct" is the third book in Jaci Burton's fun, sexy Wild Riders series about a covert government agency led by an ex-military general and made up of ex-thieves/bikers turned good guys/gals who take on undercover assignments and bend the laws to nab the bad guys that other government agencies are inept at catching. There’s a terrific mix of action, suspense, humor, and scorching hot romance, and it’s an easy, fast paced, exciting read.

This one was pretty much a mirror of the second one in this series, Riding Temptation. Instead of undercover in a biker gang, they are undercover in a strip club.

After a somewhat shaky start, I’m really quite enjoying Jaci Burton’s Wild Riders series, now that I know what to expect. This series is actually a lot of fun if you go into it expecting a sexy romp and are happy just to go along for the ride and not spend time analysing the over-the-top suspense plot.

Riding on Instinct sees a return to the steam taking centre stage, although the suspense plot (implausible though it may be) is still well done. Shadoe (hate the name) Grayson is a Department of Ju...more

This series just keeps getting better with each book. Please dont tell me it will be over soon!!

Spence was somebody who captured you from reading about the Wild Riders from the start. He is an alpha male through and through. Take charge, gorgeous, sexual and oh so out of reach.

I loved the intense, sexual chemistry that Spence and Shadoe shared and we not afraid to take on. These two really lit up the pages of the book with their raw, unbridled sexuality and needs. Spence is not used to relations...more

Shadoe is an agent of the DOJ. She is a driven young women out to prove that she can do anything a man can do, and maybe even do it better. Since she was born she has constantly been fighting the stigma of being a girl, her father always wanted a boy and drilled it into her that she was less because she was female. She has just received her first assignment and she happens to be partnered with a member of the Wilder Riders.

Spence takes one look at Shadoe and knows that she doesn't have what it t...more

This is the thrid book by Jaci Burton that I've read and I liked the other ones much better. For some reason this one had horrible dialog, maybe I just don't quite remember the other ones as well. I just about put this one down right from the begining because of the dialog but I really wanted to read a biker love story so I stuck with it. Here's an example of the part that almost did the book in for me,The H/h are supose to be partners and when meating for the first time they hate eachother on s...more

5/5 Stars

Riding on Instinct is the third book of Wild Riders series by Jaci Burton. Finally, a book from this series that I absolutely liked. It has everything I am looking for, straight forward storyline, likeable hero and heroine, hot scenes, and suspenseful plot. Shadoe's first real assignment as an undercover agent is to work with the Wild Riders, they will help her be a stripper at a nightclub to be able to exposed a corrupt DEA agent...more

Department of Justice agent Shadoe Grayson has just signed on to help the Wild Riders. The Wild Riders are a group of bikers that work for the US government. Their latest case is to identify a DEA rogue agent, who is helping the Colombians bring in illegal drugs. The only clue the Wild Riders have is that the drugs are being transported through a strip club in New Orleans. Agent Shadoe plans to go undercover as a head lining stripper but first she has to convince bad boy and one of the Wild Ride...more

3.25stars actually

I do love this series but for me this was the weakest entry. There was plenty of sex and not much of the action/adventure or drama that this series does so well. This installment gives Spence his moment in the spotlight as he plays bodyguard to agent Shadoe Grayson in her undercover role as they attempt to stop the influx of drugs.

The mechanics for the most part were fine, and the characters, pacing and overall arc – for me it was the particular storyline that felt weak. It wa...more

This is the 3rd book in the series and I think that it is my favorite so far. Ms. Burton took the sex scenes up a notch from the previous 2 books (and they were already pretty hot). Spence and Shadoe, however, are smokin' hot in bed...and on the balcony...and in the outdoors...and in the tub...and on the kitchen counter...etc.

The story of Shadoe going undercover as a stripper also made for some pretty hot scenes. And I loved AJ and Pax, the other two Wild Riders who were assigned to the case. I...more

Just like the first two books in the series, there was plenty of heat between the two main stars. I found it easy to fall in love with the characters because Jaci kept me engaged in their budding relationship.

The only reason why I gave it four stars was I figured out the ending early on. Maybe you will too and maybe not. However, even though the "mystery players" weren't a mystery to me, I thoroughly liked watching them get caught. I'm sure you will as well.
Cindy
Like bad boy biker heroes? Have I got a book for you... This is the third in the Wild Riders series and it has a tight plot, great action, steamy sex scenes and characters with enough depth to make you care. I will definitely be searching out the two previous books. Great read.

The Wild Rider hero in this story is the seeming rabidly confirmed bachelor ‘Spencer King’, who has prided himself on choosing women he can love and leave with no strings attached. That is until he finds himself drawn to Shadoe, a Justice Department Agent assigned to work with Spence and fellow Wild Rider agents Paxton and AJ. The mission is to ascertain the identity of a rogue DEA agent who is passing information to the Columbians about drug seizure operations at the port in New Orleans.

I'm technically going with 2.5 stars here. While I thought it was okay, it had potential to be a lot better.

My main complaint is that not a whole lot happened. It was a lot of sex. And some motorcycle riding. And then boom, it's over.

My minor complaint, which technically annoyed me more than the lack of drama, was the dialogue between the two main characters and the stilted descriptions we get of sex scenes. Not all the time, but there were a few that stuck out to me. Like, the romantic seductio...more

Being this is book three in a series there is a lot of back story about the "Wild Riders" that I am not privy to since missed reading prior books, that being said it really did not matter as the story featuring Spence King and Shadoe Grayson stood on its on merits to me.

I have been a fan of Jaci Burton for a long time, each tale that she pens has an edge that appeals to me even when at times it is beyond my comfort zone. Truth be told the world of strip clubs and those who patronize them as well...more

Third in the Wild Riders erotic romance series revolving around a secret government agency, the Wild Riders, employing bad boys to do undercover work the government wants to be able to disavow. The couple focus in this story is on Spencer King and Shadoe Grayson.


My Take
Oh, how convenient that Burton/Grange believes it would help their role playing if Spence and Shadoe were a couple! It certainly is fun for us that they are, even as each struggles with their own childhood issues—Shadoe and her...more

Okay, before I say anything else, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!! I THINK I JUST DIED!! Ooookay, I finally got the chance to let that out. This is just my second Jaci Burton book (Playing To Win was my first) , but I'm commenting on this one first because I don't know, I just had the urge to.

I loved how Shadoe and Spencer complemented each other, how their chemistry just jumped right off the book, for me at least. They always say reading lets your imagination roll (An...more

Spence is hot. And when he has to go work with special agent Shadoe, then things get hotter. Of course both of them are reluctant to act on that attraction because they are on a case and they should keep their focus on the job, but the sparks are hard to put out.

So why do I think this book has just about every checkmark on my list of sexiness must-reads? Bad boy biker, check. Part of a badass government organization, check. Sexy and badass chick, check....more

Book 3 in the Wild Riders series but the first I've read. I definitely consider it stand alone.

Shadoe (a green DOJ agent) will be posing as a stripper and partnered with Spence, a sarcastic jaded Wild Riders operative who will be posing as her bodyguard/lover while they infiltrate the High Class strip club scene in New Orleans attempting to bust up a drug smuggling ring and find the DEA agent who is involved.

That's all you need to know as far as the backstory, it's all about Shadoe and Spence's...more

Jaci Burton can bring the heat!!

Department of Justice agent Shadoe Grayson has just signed on to help the Wild Riders. The latest case is to identify a DEA rogue agent, who is helping the Colombians bring in illegal drugs. Agent Shadoe plans to go undercover as a head lining stripper but first she has to convince Spencer King that she is not the uptight woman he thinks she is. Agent Grayson not only convinces Spence that she is more than qualified for the job but leaves him wanting her body.

Synopsis
Going undercover as a stripper is outside FBI Agent Shadoe Grayson's comfort zone but she is bound and determined to prove to Wild Rider Spencer King that she is quite capable of doing her job. As they work together, Shadoe and Spence learn that there is more to each other than meets the eye, and they may be getting in deeper than they thought.

Shadoe and Spencer, under cover, intrigue and she's a stripper and add a little bit of fun back up and watch the world explode around Spencer and Shadoe, as they discover love that neither of them have ever had!

Fourth book in the Wild Riders series, this story with Shadoe and Spence was fast-paced and really hot as they embark on a mission centered around a New Orleans strip club, where Shadoe must pose as a stripper to bust a drug ring and Spence as her boyfriend/bodyguard. But it quickly becomes more than an act between them when they begin an intensely sexual relationship that parallels with and is enhanced by their undercover mission. Spence is the resident tough guy Wild Rider and is slow to come...more

I did something I never do with this book I read it out of order! I found this book looking for something for Lora Leigh and discovered this author Jaci Burton! She has some racey stuff, but I read the premise of this and wanted to read it right away. I have to say I loved this book. The characters were fantastic and the story was great too! I never whated to put this down and found myself laughing in some parts and sad in others. I really was cheering for these two all through the story. I migh...more

Spencer was one major to-die-for hottie! He's a wonderful brother, a smart bodyguard, and a passionate lover. All the lovn' he gave to Shadoe made me wanna fan myself several times. The sex was hot and the plot was actually decent but I didn't feel much for the book as a whole. I skimmed most of it and the ending had me rolling my eyes a bit but w/e.

And the whole prissy-stuck-up-cold-woman-turn-sexy-confident-ass-shaking-stripper cliche made me laugh.

-Sigh-

Jaci Burton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of over 50 books.
