Plagiarism Alert!

Laura Harner stole the content from Opal Carew's Riding Steele.

Book is plagiarized from Opal Carew.

Because more plagiarism.

And according to the comments in Heather's review here there's potentially a third series by yet another author involved.

Sadly, I feel I have no other choice than to reduce my ratings for all Laura Harner books. The evidence of plagiarism for some of her books appears incontrovertible and she has even apologized for it. This, for me, taints her entire body of work. I can no longer trust the integrity of any of her writing.

This in no way reflects upon the integrity or quality of any author with whom she collaborated.

Harner plagiarized this book too.

I found it horribly repetitive and as a result didn't feel like it progressed enough, especially for a serial. While I appreciated the existence of bi-sexuals, I had problems with the cliched representation of big, strapping, possessive, alpha tops and small, wispy, openly available bottoms, with no overlap. I basically thought the whole thing depended too heavily on pre-existing, M/M shortcuts.

Edit: OMG! I just realized this was the plagiarized book! Why do I still own it? I gave it two stars
Since this is a new serial, I will wait to rate and review until more are out so I can get a better idea of the story.

What a thrilling opener to an episodic series. The first story, Taken, introduces Deuce and his motorcycle gang. Deuce is asked to keep an eye on the brother of his friend Marcy, as a favor. It seems Cooper has fallen in with a bad crowd and Marcy realizes it but Cooper doesn't. Cooper is almost finished with his college courses. His boyfriend Edward has become rougher and rougher and is now abusive to Cooper. Cooper decides to call their relationship off but Edward will have none of it. When ...more

You have this thing down pat Laura Harner !!!!! Between the perilous adventures for Pulp Friction, for the paranormal adventure Altered States, the wonderful storyline and inevitable cliff hanger award is All yours…..

Knowing all this, I cannot blame you….you had me at meet Cooper Mc Elroy. You are at your best spinning a yarn, whether it is Willow Springs, Pulp Friction Atlanta, Pulp Friction Arizona or Duece Coop.

This is a very short Novella as a prologue to the capture or kidnapping of one

Lovely set up for another super story. Cute twink Cooper, realising his boyfriend is becoming abusive, is 'kidnapped' by Double Down (one of Deuce's gang) who prevents any harm from happening to Cooper.
This leaves Deuce in a predicament b/c they'd previously decided NOT to kidnap Cooper (at his sister's insistence), but now realise he's at risk.

So far I am liking this series a lot. I like a lot of Laura's series so far. I can not wait to see what happens with Cooper and Deuce in the next book with the whole gang. Erin

Really short, but a good start. I like Deuce and look forward to reading more about his hot man sharing biker gang. I love Laura Harner so I'm not sure how I missed this series coming out. I can't wait to read the next ones.

To short. I don't think series like this are for me. The story starts to get going and then stops and you have to wait for the next episode.

Hated the cliffhanger!

I will wait to see how the story unfolds..
Ugh, I hate cliff hangers! Poor Cooper is terrified out of his mind about the situation he is in and confused about whether or not Deuce is a good guy.

It seems like it could be okay but I'm off to read the next to see what happens.
