When a big scary biker shows up at Jimmy's Diner fifteen minutes before the end of my shift, covered in tattoos and looking at me like I'm on the menu, I should flip the open sign to closed. But I don't, because I'm too used to doing what I've been told. Too used to working and struggling and surviving to do anything different. A closed sign wouldn't stop him anyway. He's ...more

JESUS! I need to read a children's book and go to Confession after THIS read!

OK, so this is a little weird and different. I say that because normally, when you have a serial book situation, the first installment is basically an intro to the players. Like maybe who they are or what they're about or something, anything! So not so much with Ride Me Hard. I don't know the first thing about who Noah is, except he's a big bad biker, and enforcer of some sort and likes his sex a little on the rough sid

This is going to be short and sweet, just like the book. I give this edition 3 of 5 stars. I want to give it more, but I can't. Not because the book is not intriguing, it is. Not because it didn't make me want more, it does. There is just simply not enough story to comment on. For me, this is a prologue with not much introduction of the characters. These were just random people involved in a highly pressured situation. Having said that Shari Slade has set up one hellava story. We have a girl who ...more

This whole novella takes place literally over a few hours. Star our heroine works dead end job for pennies, lives in a dead end apartment that smells like piss, has no car and nothing going for herself.
Harry or Henry or whatever is her cousin of some sort and he works in the kitchen of the diner she works in.. he is some sort of meth head or pill popper or whatever.. next thing you know some sort of biker walks in to collect money, Harry/Henry runs and instead he takes Star. Guess where he takes

With gritty realism, Shari Slade starts us off on what promises to be a bumpy, sexy ride in this first part of a 5 part serial. It's not intended to be read as a standalone, but the parts are planned to be released in a reasonably quick succession so you won't have long to wait between them. And this is a good thing because once you start reading, you'll be ready for more! Told from Star's point of view, she gives us a glimpse of what life is like as a waitress in a diner, barely making ends mee ...more
Ride Me Hard

I'm unsure on how to rate this book since I don't have a full picture of the main characters as a result I wasn't fully invested in them, didn't fully grasp their motivations so I don't know if they were true to themselves or not. I guess the next part will make the picture clearer.

What the hell just happened? OK, I get that this was a serial. But in the amount of pages it gave me, I have no idea what's going on. And I have no connection to the characters to decide if I care enough to keep going. Not horrible, but not enough to keep me interested.
This story made no sense to's almost like Star wants to get kidnapped and used by Noah.

Will not continue the series

I just finished Ride Me Hard and it was a quick read but very hot and sexy. Noah is the Enforcer for the Devils Host MC and he's come to collect a debt that Harry owes. His cousin Star is the one that intercepts Noah when he comes into the diner to get money from Harry. Harry splits which leaves Star there by herself. She doesnt have that kind of money, Noah will take it from her body. Can't wait to see what happens next!

Story 5
Sex 5
Overall 5

If you're thinking, you're not coming...
Holy Hotness, Batman! Let's just say that the sexy badass biker, Noah, was throwing out orders in his deep gravely voice and he didn't leave much room for thinking (wink-wink). It was short, fast, sexy, surprising and suspenseful. I can't wait for more, "Oh, the sweetness and the sorrow."

Ride Me Hard is part one in the Devil’s Host MC series. This gritty MC book features Star who lives in a crappy apartment above a garage. Her landlord is an asshole. She works at Jimmy’s Diner with her cousin Harry and has to wear a new uniform that makes her look like a pin up girl. Noah, mysterious, dangerous biker, enters the diner looking to collect from Harry

Super short around 50 pages.. maybe.

Not terrible...Doesn't make much sense right now..I haven't gotten a feel for the characters yet... I'll try the next book though.

This book was ok it was a short quick read. Star was working a dead end job as a waitress in a diner her cousin Harry got her the job. One night at closing Noah comes in to collect a debt that Harry owes and what does he do he runs. Star finds herself with the bad boy biker Noah. Star is weak. I thought that this book would be longer than what it was. The book had no clear direction and I know that this is a first book in a new series to me.

Stars shift at the diner is almost over when disaster strikes, a biker comes to collect and shes the only one left. When the one saving thing turns into an even worse alternative, biker Noah steps in, and takes Star for a ride..
Quick read, bikers, suspense and smut.

Still confused after reading this book. Is Noah good or bad? What is wrong with Sky? What just happened? This book was more of an intro book to a series that I still don't know what it is going to be about.

Ah, serials. I can’t stand them. As a reader, it’s aggravating to be drip fed a few chapters of a book at a time and the wait in between in the end just annoys the heck out of me. I didn’t realize this series fell into this category when I picked up the first book until it was too late. I finally finished the fourth and final installment, and now I get to leave yet another crappy review all because the writer failed to do something so simple…just make it one damn book!

1.5 stars

This is a motorcycle "romance" in 90 pages. There isn't much to describe because it's a motorcycle romance. This novella doesn't really offer anything knew to the genre and continues to perpetuate the alpha male who is entitled to staking his claim. All the usual stuff, but this one lacks substance and pales in comparison to motorcycle novels like Nine Minutes. The characters are just there and offer no substance. There's no characterization and no plot. I've

Star's got a crappy job at a crappy diner that's just about to go out of business, a crappy apartment, and not much of a future, yet she keeps her head up and moves on. When a mysterious and sexy biker stops by the diner to get a payment from another employee, she can't help but be interested in him. Attracted even. After he saves her from another man, it's clear her new dark and dangerous friend is interested too.

Noah knows what he wants -- the money he's supposed to collect and Star, and he's

This is growly and aggressive and made me uncomfortably excited. Like, should I really be enjoying that gritty, hard, sexy as fuck blow job scene that caresses the line of consent? Answer: hell yes.

Star lives the hard life but Noah’s life is harder. When he comes to collect a debt from Star’s cousin who works at the restaurant she waitresses she knows he’s trouble, she knows she should back away and run and yet…she wants to be unburdened and uncontrollable. Does she have a choice in wh

I was given the honor of receiving an arc copy for a honest review.

Star works at Jimmy's Diner at a dead end job. A lot of time on her feet and little to show for it. No man in her life and barely any family. If she doesn't make more money soon she will be out in the streets and without transportation she is stuck in a no win situation.
Noah is an enforcer for the Devil's Host MC. He enforces the rules and collects debts. Those debts have to be paid one way or another. He doesn't take no for an

The little bit you get in this half a chapter (can't call it a book, hell can't even call it a chapter) was different but good. It left me wanting to read more, which I guess is the point but I have to say that my rating reflects more on the fact that I paid for basically half a chapter. I am getting so irritated with authors / publishers that pull this. Write the whole damn book and then sell it!

Holy Hot Bikers Ride Me Hard was hot and dirty the way I like them. I loved the story and the characters were great as well. Just wish the book was longer though. Ride Me Hard hooks you on the first page. It was one of those that you won't be able to put down. I loved this book can't wait for the next one. Ride Me Hard has some great sex scenes and action that leaves you wanting more.

Smoking hot read. You cannot help but love a bad boy. Damn what turn on. Star was a waitress at Jimmy’s Diner. It was a diner in which her no good for nothing cousin named Harry had help her get. One night this rough looking biker guy named Noah came in. Just one look you could tell he was not one you wanted to mess with, but yet had that bad boy look that turned you on. Noah was there with one reason to collect the debt Harry owed. Harry takes off leaving Star in danger to pay the debt he owed. ...more

Dear God, I am sweating like a sinner in church!!!! What was that??? I am very picky with MC books but I loved this one!!!
A young waitress.
A gruff biker.
A debt to settle.
A tricky combination.
I loved Noah....He is...dark and complicated.
The book was short but very well developed. That is the trick with novellas. The writing had me captivated. Very compelling. Gritty atmosphere and a dirty, utterly enthralling hero. I cannot wait for the next book. This was fresh and unique. A gem.

I'm realizing these MC romances are total Darcy-arcs. They hero is an ass to the heroine's face, but behind the scenes he's saving her sister from ruin. I was not feeling Noah at first; misogynist, brute, jerk. And then Star looked beyond his words at his actions, and we both decided to take a chance.
Dino-Jess ✮ The Book Eating Dinosaur ✮
This was alright.

Star was very wishy washy and didn't really know what she wanted. Noah was a douchebag, but there were hints of him having a softer side.

It was a well written, short and hot read. I would happily continue reading, but I'm not dying to get the next instalment just yet.

3 Stars.
