Pokey is a lot of things; built like a tank, loyal as hell, and...a daddy?

Orianna had good reasons for doing the things she has done, but that doesn't make the guilt go away.

Will the new parents have a chance to become a family, where partnership is the perfect balance of trust and commitment? Or will danger slice open old wounds and create new ones, preventing the healing

I have waited for fucking ever to read this ( a year to be exact ). So when this was released i jump right in. Esther did not disappoint me. From book one I have been very intrigued by Pokey and have been dying to read his story. I love this book and I absolutely loved Pokey! He was hurt in the first part of the book which is understandable but he is never mean or never does anything stupid. I loved the way he loved Spiky aka Orianna. I also loved that she felt the same way about him. No pushing ...more

The amount of time I had this on my reader before I was able to read it has to be a record for me. However, I've learned that when I'm going to start an Esther Schmidt book, I need enough time carved out in my day to finish it - uninterrupted, no stopping.

Pokey and Orianna were one of the stories I've been waiting for. Especially when a baby was involved. I eat that stuff up.

Pokey was a great hero. He was strong, faithful and smarter than he le

I loved Pokey and warmed up to Orianna by the end but I was so pissed at her in the beginning. Choices that she made weren't only hers to make. But by the end I really liked her too. Every book I've read by Esther E Schmidt, I've loved. I wasn't sure that I wanted to read Sico and Everleigh's story but now I can't wait for it. I just wasn't sure about those two but this story brought out some truths and better sides to them both.
When Orianna used Pokey to get her out of an arranged marriage, she thought she had used him and regretted her behavior. Having his child was another matter altogether but circumstances have prevented her from seeking Pokey out. Pokey though stumbles across her and his son, he is furious but doesn't plan to be a father from a distance. Inserting himself in their lives has some growing pains and both will have to learn to trust one another if they want to build a future.

Okay, I'm going to be like a broken record. Again. But what the hell can I do? Esther hits the target every damn time she aims with her stories. Pokey isn't exception. It's a mustread. Like ASAP.

We finnaly meet the real Pokey. All this time, we saw a man with a mask, having no clue what's hiding behind it. And let me tell you, you will see a beautiful soul. I loved everything about him. He's as perfect as a person could be.

While I love Pokey, I'm not sure about my feelings for Orianna. After wh

Oh My Goodness!! I loved Pokey and Spiky. They certainly had an unusual start and a long separation but they were so perfect together.
Pokey I absolutely loved him. He loved her fiercely and immediately just like his MC brothers he fell fast and hard. The way he was with his baby made me melt!!
This book made me laugh so many times these bad#ss bikers are a bunch of goofballs at times. But at the same time one person's back story came to light and that broke my heart.

If I've said it once I've probably said it 100 times if you haven't read anything from this author yet you really need to.
I honestly don't think there anything this author can't write about. This book had me hooked from the start. While we got a clip at the end of Tyler's book of how Pokey's story started I was not expecting the storyline to go the way it did.
Oh yeah did I mention Esther is the queen of cliffhangers .

Seriously from the clips we've had of him throughout the previous books you

I don't know what it is about Esther and her writing but this is one author I will recommend time and time again. Each book regardless of series pulls you in and leaves you begging for more. Pokey of course is no exception. There is something about the men of Areion Fury MC that makes your heart explodes and your panties disintegrate. When they fall they fall hard and trust me you want to be the lucky lady at the end of that love. Orianna (

I've been a fan of Esther's since before she was an Indie author. Knowing some of the ins and outs/behind the cover stuff on the already released books in the Areion Fury series, Pokey was more special than you'll ever know.

I was so excited for Pokey!
I desperately wanted to see the tough, hard loving alpha meet his match.
Wanting to know if he'd fight hard. Would she continue to run?

I tell you one thing...the coaster ride was definitely worth the wait.

OMG - This is one amazing MC book. It's got Areion Fury club excitement, the brotherhood's comradery and all the sexy, macho club bikers and their ol'ladies. But for me what made this one additionally great was Pokey himself. After one quickie in the restaurant's bathroom he was hooked on Spiky (Orianna). Even when she split right afterward, he stayed faithful to the fact that he would find her and claim her. He even stayed celibate (and well for a club biker that says alot about his character). ...more

I have been waiting on Pokey and Orianna's (Spiky)story. Pokey is something else, he has a big heart, he's charming, protective, possessive, smart, strong and he's a great father. You get to see so much more of him, that you haven't gotten to see. Orianna thought she was doing the right thing, when she kept her pregnancy a secret, I mean who can blame her. She got pregnant by a man she didn't even know, in a bathroom also losing her virginity. She didn't know what kind of guy Pokey was. Orianna ...more

Fabtastic Awesome Rollercoaster and that's making an understatement, I absolutely love Esther E Schmidt and her writing, Pokey wasn't any less than 5 star's.
From the first page you get pulled into his story (gotta read in sequence as you get a little of the next characters story in previous book but I digress) how do you cope with that situation lol not as good as he (I was swearing like a sailor) his ol'lady well I tried so hard to hate her but failed because she's human just like the rest of

This is the fourth book in this series and they need to be read in order. I have been eagerly awaiting this book. At the end of the last Pokey runs into Orianna in the parking lot. He was only with her that one time in the bathroom but he wanted her before that. He knew she was the one for him. He has been giving her the time she needed under the recommendation of the other ole’ ladies. Only now Pokey realizes that he has a son and all the ladies have been lying to him and keeping secrets.

Pokey's book was combined with romance and action which an MC romance should have. It was fast paced and made you just want the story to keep going on. I'm glad Pokey and Orianna finally get the happiness they both deserve. It wasn't exactly easy but with the devotion and love they have for each other they made it work. I liked seeing a different side of Pokey. He was great with his baby son Austin. I'm glad Orianna was able to explain to Pokey on why she stood away from him after they met and f ...more

So I read this book before it even came out... I have no idea what has taken me so dang long to write this review but here we go.

After reading Pokey for the second time I can honestly say that it's just as good, if not better than I remember. It's no secret that I love Esther's work, and to be honest I don't think there is ever going to be a book I do not enjoy that she writes. I mean unless she changes Genres on me. But enough of that you want to know about the book right? Well, go buy your co

Starts with a fast build up of tension and suspense as Oriana gradually becomes a member of the group, from her earlier encounter with Pokey they now have more to bind them together. At the same time trouble from her past threatens everything, Areion Fury step up to help and support. Fast paced read, its not all action of a vicious nature though as these two find their way. Some really cute moments tucked in with the hot and intense ones, Pokey I just loved especially how he was with Oriana and ...more

Areion Fury MC is one of my favorite book worlds to visit. I always look forward to reading the next book in the series. Really I love reading any Esther Schmidt story. With that said, I have to say Dams is my all time favorite character that Esther has written. Let's just say he is a favorite book boyfriend who I have reread many times. While reading Dams I have often wondered how Esther will make Pokey more then he appears. I should not have worried. We learn in previous stories that Pokey is ...more

Ok normally I wait for release day to put my review up, but, I just couldn't wait. Esther, you evil genius you, you've done it again. I think that I have met the book boyfriend of my dreams only to dump him faster than water out of a glass because you've given me a new one to drool and dream over. Pokey has more to him than a hot tatted bod, no filter and his loyalty to his brotherhood, he's sweet with a heart of gold under that smokin hot exterior and has my ovaries screaming for a baby daddy j ...more

Well, hell - Esther did it again! Another fabulous book with love, laughter, cursing and suspense - and yes, please don't forget the hot, scorching sex scenes!
Reading Esther's books is like coming home to meet old friends and add new ones to the bunch. You will be deeply disappointed that they
are only fictional characters and not your real friends next door.
That said I wished Pokey found someone else - I cannot really follow Spiky's reasoning (and that of the other girls as well) why she didn't

I have liked Pokey since the beginning. He is a smart alec without a care in the world which to me makes him funny. One encounter with Orianna and he is gone. He is so hooked on her that he gives up everyone even though he can't find her. Then on a chance encounter he finds out about his son. This is where Pokey actually shines. He is not gonna let anything come between the life he wants with Spiky. He just has to figure out how to get through her running. When danger hits Pokey steps up as well ...more

Wow first of all I'd like to start out by saying Esther really rock this book! When you have a book that pulls you in where you feel like your right there with the characters, well that's what this does for me. Pokey is the definition of a badass biker! Orianna is trying to cope with what life dishes out to her. The share a brief pass, and to have a future they are going too have to work together.

Poor Pokey has been searching for Orianna for months. He's been on his best behavior trying to prove he's a changed man worthy of being her old man. As far as he's concerned she's his ol'lady but circumstances have changed and secrets have come to light. Can Pokey forgive and move forward? Pokey is one of my favorite characters in this series and you can't help but feel for him when his world is rocked. This is a fast pace read with lots of twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of you ...more

Esther E Schmidt is one of my favorite MC Authors and as always she didn't disappoint with Pokey's story. I love the way she writes about sexy alpha bikers in each book. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book! Pokey is book 4 in the Areion Fury MC Series and it's not a standalone book. I recommend reading first the other Areion Fury books. I couldn't put this down once I started reading. The plot is fast pace and full of drama, action, danger, lies, passion, lots of emotions ...more

I got an ARC from my #NervousSister and this is an honest review!!

This book keeps you hooked from page one. The connection between Pokey and Orianna is hot and cold. They both know that she messed up but they both know they need to move on!! Their sexual connection is hot, like really hot! I loved seeing them grow as a couple. Pokey is the heart-warming but panty-melting at the same time. His baby scenes make the ovaries go BOOM!
I loved his Yodo moments too! You will see what I mean when you r

This review is from: Pokey: Areion Fury MC (Kindle Edition)
Could not wait for this one to come out after devouring entire series in a week!!!! I really felt for Pokey and his plight of instant connection to his Spiky. He is a man of conviction and if he says he will do something that is exactly what he will do with no striatiation. And boy does that big biker have a big heart to go with that big body and big everything else and it will take a lot for our dear Spiky to heal the wounds she so unin

How hard is it to gain someone's trust back after avoiding them for 9 months? And having his child without him knowing that you were pregnant?

Orianna "Spikey" her reasons for avoiding Pokey, which are understandable but he doesn't want to listen. Pokey also feels betrayed by the Ol'ladies of the MC for not telling him the truth.

I love all of Esther's books and this one is no different. I love how Orianna and Pokey interact with each other and Pokey's cat.
