I couldn’t wait to read this book, because it’s Taco’s story. I really liked him in the previous books and it was obvious that he was hiding a relationship in Vigor. In this book, it becomes clear that he was hiding a (kind of forbidden) relationship with Bambi, because Bambi was banned from the club. Bambi left Taco and moved far away about a year ago, without Taco knowing it. Taco has never forgotten Bambi. When he finds out something about her, he’s determined to find out what’s really going ...more

The Good. Unfortunately, not alot. I still like the setup for this series, but this latest entry is the last for me, I think. The characters and their relationships have a biker soap quality to them, which I do not mind. It’s definitely more about the overarching storyline than the individual romances at this point.

The Bad. However, the overarching storyline is turning into a mess, and I cannot keep going. I had mentioned that there was a decided dependence on racial stereotypes, and this book

Brash is the latest installment of J.C. Valentine's Spartan Riders series and you should read the previous books to be up to date.

Bambi is an ex FBI agent that has a bad history with the club. After her secret affair with Curtis aka Taco changes her life, she disappears leaving Taco with unanswered questions and confused feelings about Bambi.

This was a very suspenseful, action packed story. I loved the chemistry between Taco and Bambi. I felt that Bambi had a great reason for disappearing from

This Series is INTENSE. Holy BeJesus can the Spartan brothers ever have things go smoothly for them. I guess if they did I wouldn't be glued to the pages and dying for the next book!
Brash is Taco and Bambi's story. Taco was secretly seeing Bambi behind the brothers back before she ran off. I was so looking forward to see how JC Valentine was able to make Bambi redeemable in my eyes after everything that went on with Country. (OH COUNTRY <3) It's a great love story and mission accomplished. Taco

Brash by J.C. Valentine is a must read. The Spartan Riders series is one of my favorite. Brash tells the story of Taco and Bambi. Taco was seeing Bambi behind his brothers back . Until she just up and left without any explanation. Bambi was a former FBI agent who feels she has the perfect reason to leave and not look back. The mafia is continuing to cause problems for the Spartans Riders MC. The FBI is never far off with so much going on Taco can't let his brothers down. A chance meeting in a gr ...more

The MC are still battling with the Cruiz family with no end in sight.

This is Bambi and Taco’s story and like the previous books nothing is straight forward or easy for them. Bambi left town after discovering she was pregnant and knowing the kind of trouble the club could bring to her door. When she’s spotted by club members it brings Taco back into her life.

They are two stubborn people so it’s interesting to see them navigate the way through their new life together. The story is set against th

Bambi Lane has started over with her baby boy, she regrets leaving Curtis "Taco" Nash without a word. When Taco finds out where Bambi is a year later, he has a few choice words to say to her. What Taco doesn't expect is to find out she has a son or that it is his. With danger still swirling around will Taco be able to protect Bambi and his son or will he lose them again?

This was an interesting one because Bambi makes some choices that make you not like her but she completely redeems herself. I l

Honestly loving this series!!!

This is Taco and Bambi's story. We got little glimpses of what was going on between them in the last book. Taco had been sneaking around to meet up with Bambi. She'd been kicked out of the club after she had been found out as an FBI Agent and she went a little psycho on Talia over Country.

Bambi left the FBI but just when things with Taco were going well she had to run. The club were attracting more and more trouble from Cruiz and her men wanting to take over Sparta

Brash is the fourth book in the amazing Spartan Riders MC series by bestselling author J.C. Valentine. An edgy, gritty, romantic suspense that's a definite must read! In book #3, Curtis "Taco" Nash had been sneaking around, and being really secretive about who he had been spending his time with. It ended with him finding whoever it was gone without a trace, and no goodbye.

To say that I was shocked when I found out that he'd been with Bambi Lane is an understatement. Bambi is a former FBI agent

The saga of your Hot and Sexy Spartans continues but is this a happy installment or will tears and heartache and the Cruiz Cartel take something so important away from Taco that he didn't even know he wanted .. FOREVER !!

Bambi left Taco and never thought in her wildest dreams he would ever find her even if she prayed every night in her dreams he would..when she tried to get on with her life away from the Spartans like Country had ordered she knew she would always have ties to them .

The Spartan Riders' battle with the Cruiz family continues to escalate. Cruiz wants to eradicate the Spartan Riders and move into their territory. The Riders are not about to lie down and take it, but they are at a disadvantage. An informant!

Curtis aka Taco has always done things his way. Besides, his brothers and the club, he doesn't allow anything to interfere with his life. Until now!

I just love the Spartan series. JC does such a wonderful.

I have to say when I first read that this book was going to be about Bambi I was like “Hell no!” She was probably my least favorite character in the other books. I have to say I just love how the author wrote her in this story. Bambi had this huge secret and this secret grew her up. She truly had to chance her way of thinking.

Now in the previous book we knew that Curtis “Taco” Nash had a woman in his life. We also knew that this woman had

Brash was a fast paced, action pack, and love with secrets. The secrets could be the end of many amazing things. However, how will Curtis "Taco" Nash and Bambi Lane make it through these secrets?

This book was amazingly written, the story flowed perfectly and the plot was right on point the it kept me reading and wanting to know more. The best part was that you get to see/hear from all the members of the Spartan Riders MC, as well as members of the cartel.

This book took me by super surprised I enjoyed this one even better than the last. I went in with an open mind because I wasn’t sure how I felt when I read the synopsis but I was surprised once I started reading Bambi and Taco are intense. Hiding is how Bambi and Taco started their love affair but the way it ended was not how Taco wanted it to end; Bambi runs thinking she’s doing the right thing but breaking her heart in the processes and hurting Taco too.

I love love loved this story. After reading Vigor was desperate to know more about Taco and his secret rendezvous, and boy was this book worth the wait. Simply put Taco stole my heart, and I can't tell you why exactly, maybe it was his possessive alpha personality or the sweet loving relationship he develops with Beau, but whatever it was he mastered it. Bambi was never a favourite character of mine, but she grew on me in this book, I'll admit at first she annoyed me because I didn't a

This is the fourth book in the Spartan Riders series and each story keeps getting better and better.
Curtis "Taco" Nash has always got this feeling that something was missing in the way Bambi left. She just disappeared, no note, no goodbye, nothing. When Gabby mentions seeing her, he has to find her and see why she left and if there is still a chance for them?
Former FBI agent Bambi Lane left because she had a secret and the only way to protect it and herself was to leave. So she moved to the next

Wow, Bambi. I really hated you in the prior books, but you're a completely different person in this one. And Taco, I've been wondering who you've been talking with surreptitiously on your cellphone. This match-up was surprising to me, but in a good way. Bambi left Taco and their secret relationship due to getting pregnant. I don't think that's a spoiler as it's revealed in the very first pages. She doesn't tell Taco because things are getting dangerous in the Spartans' world. I liked both of the ...more

Going into this book, I'll admit, I didn't have high hopes. I mean who didn't hate Bambi going into this story? We have read 3 books building on our dislike of the woman and now she's the main character?! Recipe for disaster! Thankfully, JC is an amazing author and somehow, through magic or the use of her superior word smithing skills, I already didn't hate Bambi by the second chapter and actually really liked her by the middle of the book. I still don't know how that could have happened and I w ...more

Wow, what another raw, gritty and exciting addition to the Spartan Rider series! This is Taco and Bambi's forbidden love story. I didn't think Ms. Valentine could redeem Bambi after how much I disliked her from previous books but man was I wrong! Bambi is so much more than what we saw on the surface. Taco saw that, and risked going against Country to be with her. Taco has been surly since her sudden disappearance and now he has a chance to find her and get some answers.

I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review. I have been following the Spartan Riders series as it unfolds and while I love the MC and all its members, I must say that this one didn't seem like all the rest. This revolved around Taco and Bambi and their baby. While Taco is a prominent member of the MC, he wasn't much involved with the club. The previous books revolved around club activity and this one lacked that aspect. I did enjoy the book very much and there was some i ...more

Bambi left town without a word to start a new life when she learned she was pregnant. She is doing just that when she runs into Gabby and some prospects at a store. She knows deep down that Taco will now know where she is. Taco was crushed when Bambi left, for all his player ways, Bambi was the one woman he felt he ...more
