I’ve been insanely excited to read Puck’s book ever since I met him. Even though this is the start of a new series, it spins off from the end of the last Joanna Wylde book. I love MC books, but Joanna’s MC books are special MC books. They are consistently good. They’re the perfect amount of raw/grittiness without going over the top. They’re sweet and sexy without being too soft. And they always have great alpha heroes, strong heroines and a solid story. Silver Bastard was no exceptio

Ladies and ovaries, prepare to meet the bane of your existence (I'll explain) and the object of your upcoming pervy dreams, Puck Redhouse. So why bane of existence? Because I honestly thought that my poor ovaries would die a slow and painful death by sexual frustration for a good 60% of this book. But damn, what a way to go. Joanna knows how to give g
It had been a while since I was in the mood for a biker romance. Then, I read a fabulous one and it lit a spark. I had to read another one...and then another one. 'Silver Bastard' was just the story I needed to give me my biker fix. It was gritty and raw. I loved every minute!

This book tells the story of Puck and Becca. They meet at a party that is being thrown for Puck after his release from prison. One night together sets off a chain of events that will influence both of their lives for years

I love this book and the fact that we get more dirty bikers with the Silver Bastard club. The club has ties to Ms. Wylde's other series, Reapers MC, but you don’t need to read that series to read this book.

SILVER BASTARD has what I like in my mc reads; gritty, dirty and all around clusterf*ck.

So I most assuredly have a fever for MC Club books and Joanna Wylde definitely knows how to bang my cowbell.


Whatever you expect to get from a Joanna Wylde book, Silver Bastards absolutely delivers.


The overall feel of the story is very similar to other Wylde books (which can be a good or bad thing depending on your POV) - although this one most definitely has a twist at the start.

There are very few biker romances I’m willing to read these days simply because I can’t take all the angst and conflict that comes with the club lifestyle, but Joanna Wylde is one author I won’t hesitate to read because she combines just the right amount of grit and romance to make for one compelling story. Usually I really like or love her books but I have to admit...I wasn't too sure about this book for a while, and I even thought about putting it down for good. What sets this book (

I absolutely love Ms. Wlyde’s MC books, they are perfection. The perfect amount sexiness, thrill, grit. I have a hard picking favorites, but this one is up there. Silver Bastards is the first book in the spin off series from Reapers.

The story begins with Puck finally getting out of prison. The MC rides down to pick him up and while there they party with the local MC. It has been a while since he has been with a girl, too long, so Puck is on a mission when he arrives at the party

When Puck Redhouse met Becky Jones, he just got out of prison after serving a 14-month sentence and she was offered to him as a reward of sorts. It was an unforgettable night for both of them, but the consequences of that night could very well sent Puck back into the lam. Not wanting to violate his parole and to save the girl from her situation prompted Puck and the Silver Bastards to take Becky with them back to Calup, Idaho to protect her.

Fast forward five years later, Becky is making a life

My Views : First let me tell you that I was really excited to read this one as I really loved the Reaper’s Series and I love Biker’s story. Maybe I set my expectations too high but I found this one lacking. There were so many things that bothered me…The only part that I really enjoyed was the denouement, climax and the epilogue. description

I also love Joanna's writing and this is no different it was as fantastic as ever, saying all this it wasn't my favourite of her books but I still liked it!

Joanna Wylde is one of my favourite Biker authors out there, there are so many books that focus on Motorcycle Clubs that are just mediocre but this is one author that I know can deliver a gritty, realistic and emotional storyline.

This is the first in the Silver Bastard series and centres on a location in North Idaho called the Silver Valley which is located east of Coeur d'Alene, home to the Reapers MC. I

I really wanted to read this book and I'm sorry to say this but unfortunately for me it wasn't as good as Joanna's other books. I was excited for Puck's book because I wanted to know more about him but Becca wasn't exactly the perfect female character for him.I expected something else..I couldn't connect with her and this was my main problem!Overall it was a great book and the story was good!

Puck's just gotten out of prison with Painter and the Silver Bastards and the Reapers are celebrating. Puck's all ready for that but he wants something different, something sweet and wholesome and that's where Becca comes into the picture...and Puck is in heaven. That is, until he finds out more about her and then it all goes to hell.

There's a fine line with reading these MC books...the fine line between too much reality and not enough. There was a lot of too much in the beginning of this book

Silver B is a new spin-off series from the Reaper’s series. Silver B can be read prior to reading Reaper’s series.

I loved the Reaper series and I’m beyond excited for the Silver B series. And this is what I have to say.

So... This really happened. I gave 3 stars to the book written by Joanna Wylde. This does not mean that it's a bad book - I read it in one day, it was fun and entertaining, but, sadly, not completely what I expected. Puck was such an intriguing character in Reapers MC series, so I was excited when I heard that he'd get his own story. To make this short - Sliver Bastard dragged a little bit with repetitive storyline and annoying female character.
I'm looking forward to the next book in Silver Val

I love Joanna Wylde's Reaper series. I have written love letters stating this woman knows how to do biker right... not pretty and fanciful. She has taken men who are very raw, non conformist and in your face about it and given them a core of heart and strength...The women have learned through their experiences who their men are and have accepted them into their loving arms.

Overall Opinion: Before I say anything else, I want to say that the narrators on this one were great! I really liked both of them, and the man's voice was just yummy ;). Now back to business...I was a little disappointed in this one. I didn't necessarily get the connection between the h and H. I understood that they had great sex together, but other than that I just didn't get it. The h got on my nerves a little bit, and I just didn't feel much of anything during this. I

Becca had a rough upbringing. Her mother idolized Motor Cycle Clubs, or rather the men in them, and had little regard for her daughter’s well-being or safety. When Puck comes out of a fourteen month stint in prison (for protecting his MC) all he can think of is having a drink, getting laid and just generally celebrating his release. When he spots Becca he wants her immediately. She looks soft and innocent, something he craves after those hard months incarcerated, and he knows he must ha
I was so excited to start this new series of Joanna Wyldes! I don't know if it was because my expectations were too high or what; but I found that I was quite bored for the first part of the book. I also had a problem with being very frustrated with the heroine in the story. Half the time I wanted to give her a good swift kick in the butt.As far as Puck went though, I loved him! He was your typical rough, tough,rude and crude biker dude! LOL In real life, he probably wouldn't have my approval; b ...more

OH.SO.FREAKING.GOOD! This book came at the perfect time for me. It took me out of my book slump and put a huge smile on my face. It was surprisingly funny, as well as sexy as hell and held a bit of suspense. The writing was lively, fact-paced and full of action. I tried to slow down because I wanted to savor each word, but I still zipped through it in a day.
