A princess and a biker.

A modern day’s Romeo and Juliet; two people from two different worlds, one night of passion and a future of bloodshed and tears… Is it ever really worth it?

Jade is a typical Princess, prim and proper with her whole life ahead of her. Her parents have the perfect suitor picked out for her, her father’s prodigy, Marcus. Everything is as it should in her perfect little world, until the day that Ryder Knox shows up demanding she rent him the mansion they h

I am going to show my age here.....Remember when you were a little kid and the new cartoons season was starting. You waited for Saturday morning to get the new season of Scooby Doo or Speed Racer or my favorite, non cartoon...Sigmund and Sea Monsters?!?!? Yes, that feeling. That anticipation. Back before cable and Netflix when you had to WAIT for the new shows. That feeling is what I have now. This Prequel is making me Scooby Doo excited.

I'm glad I read this prequel because I can't stand Ryder and I will not read the actual book. So I've saved time and money

My biggest problem with Ryder was his use of the word "bitch" as a term of endearment :D I don't know if he really used bitch as a term of endearment but it seemed to me like that because he used it everytime when he talked to Jade. I know it's a MC book and I also know biker don't use the nicest language but you don't call a girl you care about "bitch" all the tim

This prequel was very hot, muy caliente, motto caldo and très chaud. Very hot in four different languages. If the author turns it up a notch more, then the novel should be epic and excellent. This book has an atmosphere like the tv show, Sons of Anarchy and I personally love that show.

The author uses the prequel to give in depth back stories on Ryder and Jade. T

I am honoured to be asked to read and review the ARC of Jani Kay’s Scorpions MC~Ryder a Prequel.

This is a fast paced grab you from the first chapter to the last read. Taking a break from the story is impossible so put everything aside and just immerse yourself into the story.
Two people from two different lifestyle can they fall in love and have a relationship? Do opposites attract?

MC books always have a hard time living up to my high standards. So lately, I’ve been putting off reading them. There’s nothing worse than reading a book you’re excited about, and finding out that it sucks. So I had some trepidation going into this one.

I’d seen some other reviews that were just so-so about this. So I wasn’t expecting anything grand. But I was pleasantly surprised by this. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. I was really intrigued by Ryder and Jade’s interactions. I loved the

*Spoilers Alert*

DNF @ 32%. A lot of ridiculousness going on in this book. Here are some examples:

*Ryder was incarcerated at the age of ELEVEN for killing a GROWN MAN in self defense, despite having no prior convictions that we are aware of!!!!!

*Ryder got raped by other kids while incarcerated - a MASSIVE step too far by this author. Those are graphic details I really could've done without.

*Jade's parents were gushingly happily married and in love, yet they were quite happy for her to marry an up

First and foremost I would like to thank the Author Jani Kay for sending me the Arc for this book in exchange for an honest review.

I fell in love with this book from page one to the last. This book is addictive, sad, powerful and beautiful.
Ryder the male lead in the book although he is a sexy tough dirty mouthed bad ass biker there is another side to him, a softer and caring side that will make you fall deeper in love with him. Ryder grew up in a screwed up environment, which got even worse when

I would like to thank Jani Kay for the opportunity to beta read Scorpions MC Prequel.

This is my first time reading a biker book and I must say I have been missing out if they are all this HOT. This book captured my attention from the first page and I was hooked. The storyline is unique and the characters are strong yet flawed in their own way. Ryder, our sexy dirty mouthed biker is dark, raw, and gritty. Jade is our smart mouthed, strong minded, successful career woman. When they're worlds coll

Jade has always pictured her perfect man to be proper with good manners and someone she could bring home to meet her family. What she doesn't expect is to be attracted to a biker named Ryder who comes storming into her life and turns everything upside-down. She doesn't want to be attracted to the cocky man who looks like a self assured sex god with tattoos.

Much to her dismay, Ryder gets exactly what he wants and rents out the house that he wants in Beverly Hills promising to pay upfront rent for
Jade is the beautiful rich girl from the right side of the tracks, and Ryder is biker bad boy locomotive that crashes into her world.

The Good
1. This book automatically get an extra star for being a biker freebie with over a hundred pages.
2. Ryder was an extremely sexy alpha.
3. The sex scenes sizzled off the page.
4. Despite a few bumps, the writing really flowed.
5. Jade though a bit judgmental at first, grew on me by the end.

The Bad
1. Ryder's flashback scenes really don't add much to this story,

Oh lord help me. This was wonderful. I’m not sure how far I can get into the next one but I’ll try my best. There’s something about these kinds of books that everyone rates really high that sets off my anxiety levels. You know the kind ...two polar opposites, interfering family and friends, and connections to all the wrong kinds of powerful people. Is there hope for a hea? I guess if I knew I would devour the next book. I don’t have a clue but I will cautiously read the next one with one eye ope ...more

Well, it definitely was a bumpy start for the Scorpio Stinger MC series, but what can I say I'm a sucker for hot alpha bikers! So guna stick with it & hope it can suck me in. If not, at least I have Ryder to keep me company ;)

More than complicated...
This book, Ryder, was my introduction to Jani Kay. Well, Hello! I'm in dirty-talkin' alpha badass biker heaven. I've just barely stuck my toe in the water, gotten a taste of what is to come (wink-wink). Marcus...(smh) What the hell is "The Incident"? Way to keep me coming back for more. I mention there was sex ON THE BIKE? I've got you ready to click, huh?
Im eager to read the rest of the series

This book was a fab, fast paced prequel to the main event "Scorpions MC: Two Worlds colliding" which is out in March 2014. The story provided me with enough background information to peak my interest and I have to say, March cannot come soon enough. I really want to see where this one goes and I have a feeling it's not going to be plain sailing!!! Then again when is it ever when there are bikers involved?

This is a prequel to Jani Kay's upcoming MC series. This book gave you back story about the main characters and set the scene for the upcoming series.

If you don't like a man that will take complete utter charge and telling a woman exactly how he feels no matter how brass it sounds. Then this book is not for you. If you want hot sex on a bike then you have got to read this book.

What do you do when in walks in a man that exudes sex and is the opposite of what you are looking for? Daydream about him touching every part of you, of course? Ryder Knox member of the Scorpion motorcycle club walks into real estate off

I liked the story line (not your same old, same old) and the writing style is ok. It was about 100 pages so I got an idea of the quality standard. Only thing that irritated me is the H using the word "bitch" too many times talking to the h. It was used in terms of like "girl" or "woman" but it grated on me because ...more

I love biker books. I mean really love them. I like how they are a law unto themselves and control their world. I love how they take what they want and protect what's theirs. Ryder is the VP of the Scorpions. He will fight to the death for his brothers and no one will get in his way.
In Jade's perfectly controlled world everything in her life is planned to the finest detail. College, a job in daddy's office, marry the junior partner then babies. Lots of them for her parents.

What a great start to a MC series!

I was hooked from the beginning. High class female and the rough and tough MC having chemistry is beyond hot!

"This bitch smelled good and her skin was soft and smooth. I'd love to make her squirm under me. Make her swallow her words-and my cum."

You get both Jade and Ryder's POV and I like the switching because you get each characters thoughts and feelings.

5 STARS for Jani Kay's Scorpions MC Prequel. Now I may be a little bias because I love Jani Kay's writing and this book really is no exception. The writing is spot on and the hero and heroine are well written and are going to make for a great read in Book 1.

It is just a novella but gives a good look into their lives and a enough of a start into Ryder and Jade's relationship to have you begging for more. Jade is smart mouthed, career minded woman and Ryder is a sexy, tattooed biker. I am dying to
