I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review. This is the first book I have read from Franca Storm and now that I have, I am not sure why I haven't discovered this author before. As a huge lover of MC romances this book ticked all the boxes for me. It had the grit, the drama, the alpha bikers and the strong women that choose to love these rough Harley riding guys. I found I had an instant connection to Mason and Lucy and the chemistry between these two characters was ...more

WOW, this is the first book I have read of Franca Storm. She did a truly amazing job writing this story. I just love MC books and when I ran across this book on Facebook I knew I had to try out this series and see how well I would like it. Let me tell you the characters are truly amazing and the storyline is freaking awesome.

You have to feel a little sorry for Lucy. Here she was having her overprotective brother and her former best friend in the MC. Both hugely protective and both trying to smo

The story of Lucy and Mason took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Their relationship being a push and pull from the get go. And I loved it. First and foremost Mason is a biker with a heart only for Lucy, who he believes that he is protecting from everything and everyone including himself.

The story starts off with Mason on protection detail. Looking out for Lucy while her brother is away on club “business”. He works with the mentality that his feelings for her no matter how deep th

Love this fast paced, “rough riding” MC story (and by rough riding I mean it in more ways than one).

Mason, Luce and her brother Cole had grown up together and after the deaths of their parents were all the family the three of them had. Luce has always had a major crush on Mason but he treated her like a little sister due to her brother Cole. So having him watch over her while her brother was out of town was pure torture. What Luce didn't know was how much torture Mason was under due to being cl

a super fast paced mc romance that I absolutely loved. the overall premise was rather cliched but the book came together really well and the history between the couple and Lucy's brother Cole was slowly revealed through the book to help keep things in perspective. the violence wasn't over the top and the sex was dark and dirty but the romance was sweet. I particularly loved the ending when Cole & Mason faced off and the result of that confrontation. this was the first book I have read from t ...more

when Lucy decides to move forward with her life, her brother at leaves town. Lucy's brother asks his friend and brother Mason to watch her while he is gone . I really enjoyed watching Mason decide if he was going to let his feelings be known while protecting her, or if he was protecting himself by not showing his feelings. It was nice to see a female lead know where she wanted to go in life and not let the man make her emotions what controls her. This is my honest review for a book I read. And I ...more

This was the first book of Franca Storm I read. Riding Rough was a good novella. Being a novella, there was not much background or detail. But I found it to be full of bad ass bikers and typical MC drama. Mason, Lucy and Cole definitely have a background I'd love to read more about. Mason and Lucy's story was full of drama and of course hot sex! All in all, I enjoyed this book and will read more books by Franca Storm in the future.

Wow.. I love how Franca Storm writes! The storyline is fantastic.. the chemistry between the characters Mason and Lucy is scorching hot and the way they collide with each other just brings the passion out on the pages. I'm not new to her books.. I was first introduced to her Black Thorns series. I never read a "Biker" book before then and now.. holy hell! I can't wait to read more in the Hard Leather series.. So bring it Ms. Storm! You're gonna write more soon right!? 😊

I received this as an arc for my honest review! This is the first Franca Storm book I have read and am now hooked!! This story followed a MC who has to protect his best friends sister. He has liked her for years and her him but there is a code among the MC... will love win out? This book has great conflicts and steamy scenes. Truly enjoyed every minute of it!!

This was my first book from this author but it won't be my last. The intrigue of the characters is what pulled me in, I wanted to know more about them. I felt a few of the sex scenes were a little over the top, personally I felt they distracted me from the actual story. Overall it was a good book and I can't wait for the next one.

*I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book*

Really enjoyed this short MC book, I devoured it and my only complaint would be that I wish it had been longer as I didn't want it to end.

Looking forward to the next in the series.

This is my first book by Franca Storm and I absolutely loved Mason and Lucy's story! If you are a fan of MC romance this is the perfect novella that's fun and quick to read with intense chemistry and hot and steamy scenes! Mason and Lucy have known each other for years after each suffering tragedy. They've denied their feeling for so long for so many reasons, but when they finally cave sparks fly!! There isn't a whole lot of back story, but enough to know what is happening and as the story progr ...more

Riding Rough is the first book I've read by author Franca Storm, but it won't be the last.

Mason had grown up with Cole and his little sister Luce. After the deaths of their parents and struggling to survive without being put into the system, they moved to Willow and the guys joined the Steele Titans. Luce has always had a crush on Mason, but he kept her at arms length due to the overprotective nature of her brother. But with Cole out of town for the last 2 weeks and making Mason her security det

Sometimes you just can't stay away. Mason for yrs tried to stay away from his best friend's little sister. But she was also his friend. He ran til he couldn't no more. She was everything he didn't know he wanted. And all Luce wanted was to be taken seriously. She knew her worth but other people didn't. Then trouble came looking for her and Mason became scared out his mind. But Luce had to realize that there is a fine line between a spoil brat and exerting her independence if she wants to be take ...more
