As president of The Last Riders, Viper’s only fear was losing his wife. After all, he had almost lost her once before.

As wife to the president, Winter lived in fear every day: fear that a club enemy would take Viper from her, fear that one of the club women would tempt him to stray, fear that she wasn’t enough of a woman for him. One thing Winter didn’t fear was risking e

Same old problems, I sometimes believe the author hates women since they're so often humiliated in her stories. Hubby lies, continually, about another woman and wife feels she should apologize? Hubby allows the 'other woman' to decorate wife's new house, as a surprise? I'd have a surprise for him, divorce papers, if another woman did my house up! Uncomfortable 'open ' sex scenes (maybe it's just me that's uncomfortable here, but it's my review). Just so many things are unappealing, frustrating a ...more

When I saw there was a novella about Winter and Viper I had to read it to see if they were happier than they seemed in the creeptastick "Viper's Run". I hate to say it but it's worse than I feared.

Throughout this book, Winter:

1. Is emotionally drained and feels unfulfilled.
2. Feels worse after spending time with Viper, not better.
3. Fears her relationship is not secure & Viper will leave her for another woman.
4. Gives up everything to please Viper, the club, and the club whores wh

I absolutely love Winter and Viper. This is their story and its a beauty. In Winter's touch the author gives us a glimpse of how their relationship is going. It's an emotional story, I wanted to jump for joy, smash my kindle but I went though a box of tissues. Begley has a way to draw you into her stories and never let you go. The Last Riders is in my top ten favorite series and this story just strengthened my love for these characters, I have been waiting to read this story because I wanted to ...more

Disgusted and that's the first chapter! Give me a break if you love your wife so much and you love your husband your NOT going to let someone else touch you period! I don't even want to read Trains book because he could care less about Killyama! All the women just changed their values for these men and one word for that club WHOREHOUSE!!

I love the Last Riders series, but there are so many things that I just don't like. Winter is supposed to be such a strong character, but in this book she is once again weak and crazy, always bending to Viper's needs. I kind of hated Viper in this book, and Winter too for falling for all his lies.

During the book there are a few "misunderstanding" caused by Viper lying to her about a bunch of things, but then he gets mad at her for not trusting him and he even tells her that he had never betraye

I didn't particularly enjoy this book. The writing was not as good as previous books in the series and the dialogue seemed to lack emotion. I found most of the plot ridiculous especially the part concerning Sasha and what her and Viper were upto and Winter's eventual reaction to it when she found out the whole story.

Viper does not want Winter to get pregnant as it would be too risky for her due to her previous injuries and also, he does not want to lose her like he lost his brother. He is adaman

3.5 Stars! ***Spoiler Alert***

I’ve been reading these books out of order so I wasn’t aware that Viper and Winter are having problems as mentioned in Hostage (Predators MC Series). And since Viper is my favorite of all the Last Riders, I was curious to read Winter’s Touch. The manipulative asshole has made a lasting impression over all the other MCs. His lifestyle and views have not changed from when he first met Winter. He doesn’t cheat but everything else is his way, period. This includes not g

1.5 stars because the book in general was quite decent and to support Jamie Begley who is back from her health problem. Honestly hope you're okay Mrs. Jamie, all the best wishes!

Now to the book. I need to clarify some things that I specifically did not like at all.

1) I don't know what are the exact beliefs of JB and I really don't care. Everyone has their own beliefs and all,etc.. her books there seems to be a specific tendency to have the Christian beliefs portrayed as a joyful care

If this author loves club whores so much that she lets them walk all over her girly-boy Last Riders, then why doesn't she make all of her heroines club whores?

If she would just stop pretending like she likes her current, non-club whore, heroines, I would have liked her stories a lot more and given them a much higher rating.

Sadly, her contempt for Winter and all of the other Last Rider wives is so palpable that it makes this series unreadable.

Goodlyreader: Reading the crappiest books in the world so you don't have to.


Jun 14, 2016 rated it it was amazing
Was looking at my Facebook page and saw this and eyes bulges out and saw a book on Winter!! YES!! In Hostages we read that Winter is having problems with Viper, especially because she wants a baby...However there are some complications to her having one! I'm so happy Jamie is writing another book on this couple!! Can't wait!! :D

Also can't wait for Killyama and Train!!



Lying to your wife is NOT romantic. Encouraging other women to make your wife jealous is NOT romantic. Letting other women sext you is NOT romantic. Making your wife feel like your lying & manipulations are all her fault is NOT romantic! Letting a club whore decorate your wife's house is NOT romantic.

So the book is not bad, but there are a few probleme with it (don't mind the english please I'm french):

1_ We wanted Train's book, not the second book of Winter and Viper. Ok this couple is awesome but we want Train. We thought we would have Train's book but no. Kind of unfair for us.

2_ We have two plots. First the one with the bad guy, then the one more personal, like always in her books, wich is ok. But in the personal we have 2 issues...2 big issues. And that is not okay, we can't have the Sa

Don't get me wrong, I love books with menage, sex... but women in this series, oh my GOD... in my country, we say that when a person supports humiliations, and all that crap, has "cockroach blood"... anyone with hot blood would not be soooo... you know. I would never accept things that these men want from their women. Anyway, I liked the book, despite having to bear to see some things that I think a woman who loves herself should ever endure. My favorite male character still is Shade, although s ...more

It's more like 2.5 stars but let's round it to 3 and only because of Killyama, I loooooooove her. She's my favorite character in all these books. Please Mrs. Begley don't ruin Killyama by turning her in one of the no backbone Last Riders ladies...

weak weak premise on which to base potential cheating story. It felt forced and frankly stupidity seemed to play a large part in taking the story in a certain direction.

When I open a new Jamie Begley book I know I'm going to enjoy it. The Last Riders MC world is an amazing one. Those characters are so well developed that it's so easy to remember them and what they are known for.

Winter and Viper were featured in Viper's Run, which is book 2 in the Last Rider's series. In Hostage, we learn that Winter wants to have a baby but Viper is against it because he knows it could be dangerous t

I'm glad it is not just me that feels uncomfortable with the sex situations in these books. I swore I wasn't going to read anymore of them although I've read every single one. I saw this and thought great another book about Winter so I read it. So disappointed again in the sex scenes but also the outcome in this was a bit far fetched. How much pain can one person have brought upon them. I will not read anymore of them. Bella Jewell is a great writer but things at the end were brushed over. I lik ...more

Winter’s Touch is book #8 in The Last Riders, a series that I like overall even though it’s had some books I wasn’t overly enamored with. I one-clicked it when it came out but then set it aside. The reason I put it off so long was because the synopsis made it sound like the strong woman I admired from Viper’s Run had taken a hike to be replaced by a woman who was scared of everything. With the release of Train’s Clash, I knew I needed to cross my fingers and dive into Winter’s Touch since these ...more

*My review contains minor spoilers*

If you've read Hostage then you know Winter and Viper are having problems. Winter is desperate for a baby but Viper is scared for Winter's health. (Her attack in Viper's Run caused weakness in her spine and she's at high risk of not being able to carry a child to term).

The first half was great. I love it when psycho girls are in the picture causing misunderstandings. I liked Winter's jealous side. She's scrappy. But after they worked it out we entered Cheesy

Not a fan of Winter, so much jealousy, I understand she has a health situation. But I have to admit it was a good book. She did pissed me off in a couple of chapters, acting like a high schooler, knowing she is a grown ass woman. Still a fan of the author.

This one was just so-so simply because the story line was all over the place. It was confusing and made no sense. I gave it 3 stars since I love the characters but the story itself was totally incongruous and it started getting more and more confusing as it went on.

while I'm a fan of the last riders, I had a few issues with this storyline. first viper used to be my favorite, however now I'm not so sure. while I can appreciate how far Viper and Winter grow within their relationship in this story, I don't think I'm a fan of the speed bumps they hit along the way. this whole Sasha thing has some holes in it that really bother me, along with Viper keeping things from Winter. I know they patched things up, they had to, but it still felt like a big plothole to m ...more
