Had high hopes for this one at 25% in. Really enjoyed the plot line and characters. Second half, conversation became stilted and storyline just kind of fizzled.

I had loved book one in Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club series and I was quite sure that I'll like this one too. Happy to say that I loved it! It is even better than book one in many ways. Although both books can be read as stand alones. It has drama, romance, beautiful singer, bikers and a lot more. I especially loved the twist in plot at the end. That was very well done.

James "Cain" Allen meets Tessa "Lincoln" Todd as he helps on her music video. She is a famous rock star with a bored and lonely attitude. He is a hard working college kid who is trying to find his father's killer.

Lincoln tells Cain she wants to run away and have a break. He talks her into being responsible and finishing her video shoot. Then, her manager pays him to talk her into the rest of her schedule. She wants to cancel her tour, and invites Cain along or she won't go.

This is the first time in reading this author for me. This also was a little different than most other club novels I have read. I think some of it was because of Cain. He is but not part of this club. Having family business to handle with also his sister in hiding, while on a job he confronts Lincoln. Thanks to honesty on his part he is asked to "handle" the young star. This is also where it gets to be really different than most and you are given depths on these two that as they travel together. ...more

I really enjoyed One Percenter and was looking forward to The Handler. This book did have some of the Characters from the Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club in the book but the story mainly featured around a character that we hadn't heard much of James (Cain) Allen. Cain is doing some work for a company that handles a young pop star Lincoln Todd. Cain has never heard of her before and finds her demands for the video they are shooting dangerous and over the top and voices his opinion. Of course that do ...more

This book is a bit of different, a bit of different I liked. It’s not your usual plot line but it is if you get what I mean. The execution is different and the characters are different. I found myself reading a rather nice story about two people falling slowly in love, although initially it is a bit forbidden as the main character is too young, there’s no out right heavy petting or sex in this book. It often felt like there was a lead up to something like that happening but it didn’

Cain Allen is under the protection of the Noir et Blue biker club while he waits for the 2 men who killed his father and set his mother and home on fire, to go on trial. The only problem is the third one escaped before he could be arrested and is still on the loose and Cain is the only one who can identify him. Burdened with growing expenses and hospital bills, Cain is working odd jobs to make some money. When he is offered a huge sum to "handle" superstar Lincoln Todd on a European tour, there ...more

This was the first book I read in which the POV was solely from the males perspective and I didn’t mind at all. I think I enjoyed this book more from Cain then if it would have been a duel POV. This was also only my second bike novel, and who doesn’t love a bike guy. There were some twist and turns during this novel and I have to admit every time I tried to guess the plot, I was wrong. I liked this book a lot and even better it kept me on my toes.

This new adult romance, second in the Noir et Blue MC series but easily read as a standalone, is the story of Cain and Lincoln. Cain is searching for his father's murderer and the motorcycle club his father used to belong to is assisting him as they want payback too but Cain is the only one who can identify the man on sight. He does some odd jobs for the club and when one of those jobs involves stage set up for stunning pop star Lincoln, he ends up with a pretty sweet offer - be her 'handler' fo ...more

He’s working as an electrician when he meets Lincoln Todd – a young girl who has just recently moved off of the Disney Channel. After watching the making of one of her music videos he’s not necessarily got a high opinion of the girl as she’s mouthy and opinionated, but she seems to take his advice about different things pretty seriousl ...more

Graham just earned her way into my auto-buy authors list!

Every once in a while a book comes along that I don't even need to finish before I'm telling everybody I can get to listen, "go buy this NOW!". Not only is this one of those books, I have a feeling I'm going to be doing that a lot with D.R. Graham books.

THE HANDLER is a wild ride that kicks the engine on and doesn't let up pace until the end. I'm quite bewildered that there wasn't a higher page count because there is so much packed into th

The Handler is the first book I have read by author D. R. Graham. I have to say that I am impressed by her writing and really enjoyed this book. It had a fresh plot, solid writing, interesting characters, and a smooth flow. Although this is the second book in the Noir Et Bleu Motorcycle Club series, it can be read as a stand alone novel. I was so impressed with this book that I plan on reading the first book in the series, One Percenter.

Having throughly enjoyed the first book in this series I was more than happy to have the opportunity to read this sequel and I certainly haven’t been disappointed. It is another superb read with Cain Allen searching for the biker who murdered his dad, seriously injured his mother and traumatised his younger sister whilst he also tries to keep himself safe until he testifies against the other two killers who are already in police custody. He’s being protected and supported by the Noir et Bleu bik ...more

Note: This ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

The Handler is the second novel in the Noir et Bleu MC series by D.R. Graham but can be read as a standalone since, other than the motorcycle club, there's no direct connection between this and the first book, One Percenter (which I loved!). This was a story about a young man desperately seeking justice for the murder of his father and the physical damage

What happens when a brutally honest guy meets a lonely superstar? He becomes her handler and offered a four hundred and thirty thousand dollars to be her friend.

Cain Allen wanted nothing more than to find the last man responsible for killing his father and putting his mother in the hospital, but with the trial six months away and with him being no closer to finding the third guy involved, Fireball, he was stuck being away from his little sist

Cain is on a mission to find the man who got away, the one who has for some reason set out ot hurt his family even if it means they all end up dead. To this end he travels to L.A. and is housed with a biker gang that is also determined to get this guy. While on his search he has to make a living so he takes a few contracting jobs on the side. One of those jobs happens to land him at a set for a popular pop star, granted one he’s never heard of but whatever. His initial impression of Lincoln is t ...more

The Handler had me hooked fairly quickly. This is not your usual MC Biker story. Cain, aka Jamie, is the college age son of a former, founding member of the Noir et Bleu MC. When he is killed, Cain goes looking for the assassin who got away. By chance he ends up working an electrical job on a video shoot. He meets the demanding 16 yr old Diva, Lincoln when she makes an ridiculous demand to change things, NOW. He tells her like it is, she doesn't like it, but takes his advice after she fires him. ...more

This is the second book in the series but definitely can be read as a stand alone. Just like the first book I got caught up in the story. This author has a way of capturing your attention and not letting it go. The pace moves along nicely. The characters are well developed and likable. They are, however, very young. (18 and 19). It is sweet romance with a little mystery and danger. Cain is trying to find the third person involved in the murder of his father. He wants to

The Handler is a heart stopping story of love, revenge and finding closure. The characters are nicely written. I enjoyed the first meeting between Lincoln Todd, the teen popstar, and Cain Allen. Their interaction made the characters come to life. Cain is determined to see his father's murders brought to justice. I admired his courage and determination. The Noir et Blue motorcycle club gave the story an edgy feel. How they are portrayed was different that what I expected. It made for an interesti ...more

I gave One Percenter (one of the other standalone novels in the Noir et Bleu MC series) 5plus stars and didn't expect that The Handler could be better, but it was! Fast paced, well written, edgy and sweet at the same time. Lincoln is a wonderfully layered character that on the surface fits the cliche popstar image but deep down she is so more than that, and I couldn't help but feel for her situation. Cain, aaah, Cain. So protective, so sweet, and so badassed deep down. There is quite literally s ...more

Cain is searching for the man that murdered his father while at the same time trying to stay hidden to be safe. While he's waiting Cain is offered a job to watch over Lincoln who is a pop star. Not only is he protecting her from those who threaten her, but he also has to protect her from what is happening with him. Then there is the attraction they have for each other.

I really liked the suspense part of their story. It framed their romance so well.

I give The Handler 4 hearts!

DNF @ 25%. I wanted to love it, I really did, but the main character Lincoln drove me nuts with her "pop princess" diva attitude. I had high hopes that the character would not follow along that path. However, maybe Lincoln chills out as the story continues but I honestly could not take it anymore. ...more

And yeah, I’ve been making up excuses, but it’s not because I’m scared to be with you. It’s because I’m scared to fall for you and then lose you.” 4 likes
“Eventually, she stepped back and smiled. “Night.”

I nodded, not wanting the moment to end. It had to, though, so I said, “Night.” I watched her disappear into her bedroom. Then I exhaled in an attempt to remind my body that I worked for her.

One day handled. Forty-two to go.

It wasn’t going to be easy.”
