Goodreads Synopsis
Lauren Grahame has spent her whole life thinking something special was going to happen. She didn’t know what it was, she just knew it would one day be hers. But she learned the hard way that special wasn’t on offer. So, after divorcing her cheating husband, Lauren searched for nothing special and she thought she found it when she landed a job as a waitress in a biker bar in Carnal. It was perfect: a nothing job in a nowhere bar in Nowheresville.

Then Tatum Jackson walked in. Part-owner of the bar, he took one look at high-class Lauren and wanted nothing to do with her. And he made this known, loudly.

Tate’s angry insults seared in her brain, Lauren decides the feeling is mutual and she doesn’t want anything to do with the gloriously handsome Tate Jackson. The clash of the bartender and barmaid begins but, even though Tate makes his change of mind clear (in biker-speak, a language Lauren is not fluent in), Lauren is intent on going her own way.

Until a serial killer hits Carnal and Lauren finds out Tate isn’t a bartender, he’s a bounty hunter. He stakes his claim for Lauren before he goes on the hunt for a killer but Laurie doesn’t speak biker nor does she understand bounty hunters and Tate comes back from the hunt to find his old lady has moved on. Life throws curveball after curveball at Laurie and Tate. As secrets are revealed, women are brutally murdered, and Lauren tries to find her inner biker babe.

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 18826 comments Oh, this one is good. I've read it twice. I had to, b/c the first time I just gobbled it down. LOL!

Hiya Shosho. I know I've been meaning to read it since then. I'm doing a buddy read on her other series but really liked the gamble.


Vanessa (ReellyReading) | 51 comments Hi.I Would like to join your Buddy read. This is my first time, how does it work? I've read 12 of her books already. Just finished Gamble.


Vanessa (ReellyReading) | 51 comments Yes, he was yummy and he wasn't like the other very alpha alphas from Dream Man Or Rock Chick. I guess because of his first wife he knew when he saw someone who was worth his time. He fought for it plus he is a Mountain Man.LOL


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Welcome Vanessa! Have a look at some of the other buddy reads in this group to see how we tend to work things. You don't have to volunteer for any questions if you don't feel like it, especially if it's your first time... We start reading on the date above and read a set number of chapters a day... or at least, we ask questions about a set number of chapters a day. Quite often a few of us read ahead :)


Vanessa (ReellyReading) | 51 comments Thanks Carol. I look forward to it.


~Megan~ (Megadee) Oh, how I love Tatum Jackson!! Babe. You have no idea.


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments AaaaRRGGHHHHH! I don't know if I'm going to be able to wait until the 5th! I keep hearing such good things, I hope I don't raise my expectations too high!


Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) I don't know about the reading only a few chapters a day thing. lol ☺ I read a book in a day but I'll try and not give any spoilers when I do.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 5991 comments Heehee I love that we're all worked up and ready to read this!


~Megan~ (Megadee) The third book is even better than this one....and I just finished the fourth, which contains my favorite ever KA heroine!


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Ok, The Megster has to STOP with all the teasing... It's not fair to us poor plebs who are trying to be good and waiting... (no really, tell me more!)


Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) Patience, Grasshopper!


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments LOL Pam! I know, you're right.

LMBO! Yeah, Rachel, I was truly amazed that G.R.R.M. could get me to change my mind about that character.


message 36: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 18826 comments Somewhat. At least I found myself rooting for him.

My list has 2 of yours on it , I won't say which ones!
but about Jamie , he is the twin brother isn't he? He's got an ick factor !!!but I've only read half of the first book!!!

@ Lisa Kay
what is G.R.R.M?


message 38: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 18826 comments Sorry, G.R.R.M. = George R.R. Martin


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments lol, love how you threw that out there Rachel, but I have to admit, I don't know who that is or what ASOIF means...

ha ha me either


message 42: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 18826 comments Rachel is talking about the series A Song of Fire and Ice.

A Game of Thrones  (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2) by George R.R. Martin A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) by George R.R. Martin A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, #4) by George R.R. Martin A Dance With Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5) by George R.R. Martin

Jamie Lannister, one of the POV characters, has an ick factor (view spoiler). Still, G.R.R.M. manages to make him sympathetic and likable...somewhat... as the series goes on. That is why she posted and ran. She thought someone might start flaming her.

Elishia | 2512 comments LOL oh. I haven't read these yet been looking at them for months, think I even got the first one but not sure i'll like them. I really shouldn't have read that spoiler.


message 44: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 18826 comments Sorry, Elisha. I've done that, too. Just can't resist those spoilers sometimes.


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments LOL! No flaming here Rachel.


Rachel the Book Harlot lol Guys! Jaime Lannister is a character from the Game of Thrones series. He is...gah, I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil so I'll say he is a villain. And...well...there is also an extreme ick facter because he has an incestous relationship with his twin sister. I know, totally cringeworthy! (Shosho, definitely an ick factor!) I see you all side-eyeing me! Hahahaha!

Lisa Kay, me too!

Shosho, I won't pressure you into telling me who your 2 are...but will chocolate cookies work? No? How about chocolate cupcakes? :)
