Good girl. Bookworm. Wallflower. Juliette’s been called all of them, and never protested. But every now and then she wants to be daring and adventurous and sexy. A night out with the girls presents just the opportunity Juliette’s been looking for.

Undeniably sexy, Shooter hits all of Juliette’s hot buttons—and as a member of a local biker gang, rings more than a few of her

Start your review of The Biker's Librarian (Lords of Mayhem #1)
Juliette is the good girl librarian, still gun-shy from a past relationship disaster, but ready to bring the sexy back to her life. Shooter is the gorgeous biker whose eye she catches on her first flirty girls’ night. It's amazing what the universe will send you, once you open the door. On the surface nothing about this pairing should work, but their differences are actually puzzle pieces that really fit.

I normally have an aversion to any motorcycle club read with "biker" in the title. I'm happy

What the hell kind of ending was that? OK... I digress and will begin by being completely honest about this book.

This had to be one of the dumbest heroines I have had the misfortune to read. By all accounts, she is being stalked by a sexually violent and deviant ex-boyfriend, however, she withholds this information from her mother, and often, from her friends. She goes as far as to refuse her friends staying with her after receiving a death message from ex boyfriend, while

The story was cute. I liked the characters. This book lost a star because there were too many editing errors. When you're this good of a writer, your work deserves to be edited. It needs to be edited. Bad editing ruins good books.

Would I read another book by this author? Yes. If it had the same editing problems as this one, that would be the last one, though.
We are starting off by saying that this is a new author for us and that we really enjoyed this first novel by her.I really loved it.Looking forward to future reads by her.

One of the things I liked about this story is when two complete opposites meet but have amazing chemistry together. A librarian and Biker who would have thought that they would have anything in common.Who would have thought that a librarian could be sexy too a Biker but, the sparks this couple had scorched the pages.

Not her best work

I have read numerous books by this author, some were really good, others were ok, and some fell short. This one fell short. I was able to finish the book but everything felt rushed. There was no development with regards to Shooters and Juls relationship. She went from being single to being an MC's "old lady". Both had a lot of issued they needed to deal with. While the relationship should have made sense, it didnt. Juliette was way too immature for Shooter. The 10 year age

I was very excited to pick up BIKER'S LIBRARIAN because it checks a lot of boxes for me. Somewhat nerdy girl who meets and enthralls a hot biker who's active in an MC. Said girl finds herself in a bit of danger and the bad ass biker will become her shield and protector. AND on top of all that it's an IR read? Yes, ma'am sign me up and please take my money!

That is basically what is served up in BIKER'S LIBRARIAN, however there was just something missing for me. The writing is not bad and the

3.5 stars. This was a sweet biker story. BBBW/WM

Shooter was a sweetheart to Juliette. I just have zero to complain about. She was also a pretty good heroine. She had some issues (they both did) but they did not cause large amounts of angst just drama and action. I prefer outside the relationship drama. They communicated really well, even though he held back some stuff. It still was handled maturely. Overall it was a fairly short, easy biker book that was not really about bikers. The end wrapped

I just finished Biker' Librarian and I liked it! It's a biker book so of course I am all over it. This story is about Juliette and Shooter. They both have been betrayed and are hesitant to move forward. Juliette wants to finally live so she heads out to a club with her friends. She doesn't expect to meet Shooter, Sergeant of Arms with the Lords of Mayhem. He wants her but realizes that she is not a one night stand kinda girl so he has to make a decision. Does he let her go or does he fight for ...more

3.5 stars

I really enjoyed this one. It's the first for me from this author, and was a total impulse pick. There was a surprising amount of depth of both characters and plots for a book of this length. At the same time, that is my only complaint. There were plot points introduced that I though needed more time and explanation. All in all though - well written and engaging. Finished in one sitting. I really loved both Shooter and Juliette - and I'd love to see some of the secondary characters get

This is finally a good biker book again, after reading some disappointing shallow nondescript biker books. Good story with the right amount of steamy scenes, likeable H and h, adorable friends and MC brothers, I enjoyed this one very much. Point deduction to 4 stars due to the price, $6 for 177 pages is too much. I'm not sure I will continue this series if the following books are just as expensive.

4.5 star rating

Totally hot, interracial romance about an African American librarian and a rough around the edges alpha male biker. Absolutely love Shyla Colt's writing. My only complaint is the ending felt rushed and wrapped up too quickly. However, I have a feeling there will be a sequel, although other characters may take the lead which I am fine with. Very excited for Moose and Joey to get their story. :D

This is the first book in the Lords Of Mayhem series and published by Hot Ink Press in March 2017. I’m not sure what has been updated from the Ellora’s Cave published issue from 2015.

A tale of opposites attract with the good girl librarian and the bad boy biker, Juliette and Shooter were a sweet but sexy pair to read about. They meet at a bar where Juliette is trying to have fun and forget about her hateful ex Peter. She can’t believe that the sexy biker is interested in her whereas Shooter can’
All I can say is that it was okay. The Hero lacked authenticity, and so did the heroine.

Other than that, don't be surprised if you start to fast forward through the book.

Giving this one: 2.5 stars.

I liked this ebook well enough. Unfortunately, other than the delicious cover it really didn't leave much of an impression either way. Could be why I forgot to rate it after I read it about a month ago. It was far from terrible at least. Full review to come...

Juliette and her friends were bored with their status quo and went looking for something a little more exciting. Juliette knew she'd found that something the moment she laid eyes on the tall, dark, and brooding stranger across the room. She also knew he was probably more than she could handle, but she was looking for a change, right? After sharing one dance with the sexy stranger she's not sure she can handle the type of excitement he has to offer.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I started out really liking this book. It calls to all of us non stereotypical females: what would happen if we let loose and be the woman that's trapped inside for a few hours.

Juliette does this with her friends, go glam and go to a bar that they normally wouldn't dare step foot into. Once there, the hottest dude in the bar can't take his eyes off her. After he gets the thumbs up from her friends, Juliette lets her inner
Juliette and Shooter both have past betrayals that haunt them, despite that there is no denying their almost instant attraction.

Things I liked: Shooter is a sweetie! I'm a bit in love with him, your first interaction with him is him thinking about what his father said about the first time he met his mother. Shooter is a biker and loyal to his brothers but he doesn't let that get in the way of his budding relationship with Juliette. He is up front and honest and he also doesn't say he want's her

Thanks Wicked Reads for a free book to read and review.

Shooter undeniably hit all my hot buttons. I'm quite stumped on how to exactly rate this because I felt the story shifted twice. The first part of this book sounded similar to another book I while I read it, I had the feeling of déjà vu. It happens sometimes because I have read so many books and themes sometimes make me feel like I have already read every POV there is. Victoria Dahl had written one about a biker and librarian.

What happens when a sweet librarian and a hot biker meet? Lots of hotness! This wasn’t a really long book but it was packed with action, hot sex and a little drama. Juliette thought she would just have one night of fun with Shooter but Shooter had other plans. Bikers, crazy ex’s and good friends, this book has it all, get on and enjoy the ride!

The Biker's Librarian was the first of Shyla Colt's books that I have read.

The story centers around Biker Bad Boy Alpha- Shooter you know the type. Shooter is looking the kind of guy that could have any and all women when and where he wants them. What Shooter doesn't expect to fall his way is librarian Juliette.

The one night that Juliette goes out to a bar with her friends and of all the bars like in the movie Casablanca "of all the bars in all the places" she meets Shooter and here we go...One

I really enjoyed this book. I love Juliette and Shooter's relationship.

Both of these two people are hesitant to get involved, but Juliette decides that she finally needs to live her life.
So she goes out to a club with her friends, not expecting to meet anyone. And not someone who's in a motorcycle 'gang'!

She doesn't wait to live scared anymore. Then she spots scorching hot biker man Shooter there and decides to leave with him. Shooter is quite smitten with her too.

Shooter is the type of man that he doesn't care who sees him give his woman some sugar, if the boy wants sugar he's gonna get some sugar, "I don't give a eff about your neighbors." A wicked grin spread across his lips." Shooter likes to take care of what's his, "you're mine now, Juliette. I take care of what's important to me. If you ever feel even the slightest bit uncomfortable, you call me and I'll take care of the issue." I don't think one conversation was meant to be amusing and/or funny ...more

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is a good introduction to MC world terminology, as we view it from Juliette's viewpoint. She is certainly a newbie to that environment and culture, having hidden herself away from men after a terrible relationship with an abusive, deviant boyfriend. Fortunately, though her foray into dating presents her with a sexy, bad*ss biker called Shooter, he has a soft side for her. This is a sweet (for an MC story) romance,

A fun read that reminded me a bit of the sons of anarchy. Although fun, I'd be lying if I said I didn't skip a few paragraphs, if not pages (which I did). The heroine annoyed me a lot of the time and I really did like the hero. Their story gave me a mix of emotions that made me want to rate it from a 3.5 to a 2.5. Overall I enjoyed watching them fall in love and I'm even tempted to continue reading about the others (let's face it, they're all a bit funny and interesting)
AlligatorSmith loves to read
I enjoyed this first book in a new MC series, especially the pairing of a biker and a librarian - how much more could they be in different worlds? The writing was solid, and the storyline was good - in fact, I enjoyed it so much that I went and picked up a few more biker books by Shyla Colt - a sign that this is an author worth reading. I really like the BBBW/WM angle of this story, too.

Thanks for reading!

The author has outdone herself once again. It's amazing and wonderful all at the same time. Each chapter and page turn leaves you craving more and more of this story that by the end your hoping for more to come in the future!! MUST READ!!! This MC romance story is like nothing before it's softer with a small bad sexier harder side to it. enough to make you love it!!
