I’m a Doomsday Sinner. A biker to my very soul. Women have always been the same - interchangeable. Until her. She loves my control and craves my touch. Now she’s mine. I’ve claimed her in every way possible and I won’t let anything, least of all her, tear us apart.

Please, ignore my review if you like MC romance in general...


I have been able to finish it only by skimming and scanning after 20% and I swear this is the last MC book I have tried to read. They all sound the same to me: an alpha-gorilla male & a submissive woman happy to be owned and claimed like a property!

The MC biker lingo such as the "old lady, club whores" etc. are so repulsive to me that my eyes hurt while reading them.

Echo is an alpha caveman type. He knows what he wants and he will get it. Welcome to town British girl Olivia. The chemistry is undeniable. Their love is intense.

This is everything you would expect from an MC read. I love the alpha personality. Hot read. Fits the genre.

4.5 stars out of 5. Paperback read.

Great debut book from Gemma Weir.

A reader first now an author and the reader passion showed through, it was like Gemma took everything I love in an MC romance and put it in the pages of Echo.

Possessive, bossy, sexy, dominant, Echo is all the above and more.

An insta love romance that is scorching hot, I good chunk of this book is sex which are well written scenes and its a long book so that's a lot of sex but when you do get to the plot and the story, this is also engaging.

What the hell is going on in this book?!? This book is a disaster! The characters, especially the h, are a trainwreck!

I've read one book by gemma and I wanted to read another so I picked this baby. Was it as good as the other about 50/50. But for some reason idk why I love Super ALPHAS TO THE MAX THAF SHE WROTE!!! Also this book is longish but the chapters are short

I did have some eh with Echo i did dislike him calling Olivia bitch in his pov but in biker slang I can understand thats the slang? But still it was annoying. But let's talk about our Biker Mc Echo. He is an Alpha on steroids lol like to the extreme
Romance Between The Sheets
Firstly, the cover of Echo immediately drew me in and is perfect for him, I can imagine this biker from the first few chapters.

Echo is dominating to a point of at times I found him a bit too hard with Olivia.  I wanted to understand him more and at times it became too much with all the sex scenes.  This was prevalent in the first half of this story.  Moving onto the second half we get more under the skin of Echo and how he copes when Olivia is in danger and hurt.

Although slow to start and slightly on the repetitive side, I found this novel packed with action and excitement. Echo a member of an MC has an instant attraction for Olivia, a British girl on a backpacking adventure through America.
It took a long time for Echo to break out of his caveman persona and grow a bit more, and deep down I wished that Olivia stopped a for a second to get some of the answers she so desperately sought and wanted.
Nonetheless, the characters were both lovable, and I

Wow. What a story from debut author, Gemma Weir. I’m a big fan of MC reads and Echo had me turning the page and staying up well past my bedtime.

The writing is engaging, the sexy scenes are HOT, and there’s enough twists and turns to pack a punch!

I can’t wait to see where Gemma goes next in Archers Creek!

This is the first book I've read by Gemma Weir, and I have to say I did enjoy it. I love MC and this was your typical bad boy meets the good girl MC read. I liked both Echo and Liv, they had an electric chemistry. I kind of guessed who the psycho's were that built up from the beginning of the book, but I never imagined they'd be so cold. So, if you like MC then it's a definite one click read.

Loved it

If you love a dirty talking, sexy demanding alpha then this book is for you. Echo is the perfect combination of all that. The sex scenes are crazy hot. I loved that he fell hard for Livvy even though he didn't want to. Livvy was an awesome female lead.
Echo is the ultimate Alpha Male!

If you're a fan of an alpha male then this is definitely the book for you! This is THE book at the top of the alpha list.

This book was HOT. Echo was just the right amount of bossy and sexy with that hidden soft side you cant help but love, and Liv was all kinds of sassy and strong and best of all BRITISH (Which is always a massive plus for obvious reasons).

Don't care if it's a minute, a day, or a fucking lifetime. You belong to me and have since the moment I set

DNF @24%.

Why, when everyone seemed to have loved it or enjoyed it?

Let me tell you. May be a bit spoiler-ish - sorry, can't be helped - so look away if you don't want to know.

It started out well. I was liking it. I had read some teasers, previously, and was eager to start it. I liked the heroine, I even liked the hero.

But it all went downhill when he immediately started - and I do mean right away - with "mine, mine, mine." I get it, alpha, possessive blah blah blah. The whole package. But really

You know that AWESOME feeling you get as a reader when you discover an author totally NEW to you that writes a book that you loooove? Well, 'Echo' by Gemma Weir did that for me. I don't know HOW I managed to MISS Ms. Weir's work but am I soooo DARN happy I found her at last! The only upside is, this way I've got LOTS of her work to binge read! No waiting at this point!
And Echo. Ah, glorious, marvelous, delicious Echo! EVERYTHING this woman craves in a stellar book boyfriend. Alpha, southern draw

Excellent debut book!!! This book hit all of my buttons- sexy, dominant alpha male and a biker to boot equals swoon-worthy. A feisty, smart-mouthed heroine that curses like a sailor is my kind of leading lady. I couldn’t stop turning the pages once I started.

Olivia is on holiday traveling the US when her bus leaves her stranded. Now she doesn’t know what to do because that was the bus to take her to meet with her for free ride to California. Echo in his dominant, alpha fashion takes

What a super debut book from Gemma Weir. It's all kinds of hot, steamy and dirty, but with a great story too.

I was immediately captivated by Olivia and Echo's story. When Olivia gets stranded in Archers Creek whilst travelling, it's Echo that 'picks her up'.

Echo is one VERY HOT, extremely alpha biker from the Doomsday Sinners MC. And when I say the word Alpha.... My word, Echo is abrupt, determined, dominating, and maybe at times a little OTT. There was a bit of insta there from his side, which

Echo is the fast paced and sexy story of a feisty independent northern British girl and a kick ass Texan biker. Fate steps in to put Echo and Olivia in the same place at the same time, where one look is enough to cause lust at first sight for the pair of them. There are lots of twists and turns in this story, some of which I saw coming, some I did not, which make for an exciting read and had me on the edge of my seat. A good cast of supporting characters added humour, fun and friendship

Dirty, sexy fun!

This is the book for those who love instalove, loads of sex and a badass alpha hero that will drive you mad but make your panties wet while he does it.

This isn't classic literature, its erotica pure and simple and deliciously over the top.

Echo is everything a dominant, bossy biker should be and as this couple dart from one intense sexual experience to the next they also fall in love and really what else do you need.

I love the slightly different take on your “typical” MC story

Fab debut by this author.
I love the slightly different take on your “typical” MC story...the suspenseful element made the storyline much more of a page turner.
Looking forward to reading more from Archer’s Creek.

I'll start with what I loved most about this book, and that is simply, Gemma, this book has been such a journey for Gemma over the past couple of years, she's poured every part of her being in to Echo, it seeps out of her ever pore. I'm privileged to have known Gemma now for over 2 years as a reader and friend, and was so excited earlier in the summer when she asked me if I wanted a sneak peak of the first few chapters, from those first few pages I already knew Echo was going to be a hit.

Wasn’t sure about this one when I started reading.
The characters - Olivia, loved her from the start, she’s a character that leaps out of the page at you.
Echo, absolutely could not stand him at the beginning in fact I could have happily punched his lights out but the more I read of the story the more he grew on me and at the end I genuinely did like him.
There are plenty of other characters in this book, some good, some not so good but they are all well written that you picture them in your head
Title: Echo
Author: Gemma Weir
Another author once wrote about Romance that either the story drives the sex or the sex drives the story. In this case the sex truly drove the story. That isn't a bad thing at all but this book dragged on an on. There is only so many times a guy can go caveman and knock a woman over the head and drag her back to his cave shouting how she is his before a reader gets bored. If the book is supposed to be an erotic story so be it b

For this being Gemma Weir's debut book and this being my first read by her I was not disappointed one bit! I started this book and didn't want to put it down.
I do love a good MC story... that grumpy womanising alpha male that just melts into a puddle when he sees the woman just makes my heart go that little but crazy!
So we have Echo who is part of The Sinners MC club and is living life to the full ... or so he thinks until Olivia rocks up in Archers Creek one day and his life is flipped aside

Deliciously over the top hot, swoony, alpha fun. I thoroughly enjoyed this and thought it was a fantastic debut novel.

This book follows Olivia and the eponymous Echo. Olivia is a Brit travelling through the U.S. when she find herself stuck in the town of Archer’s Creek. Here she meets Echo. Tough, alpha biker. Their attraction is instant and powerful.

Their are plenty of hot times in this story but I was never bored or found anything repetitive. Sometimes things can feel a bit samey and I start

Ok I feel like I do this with every book I read but I’m going to say it anyways (it’s the book whore in me - she can’t help herself)....

There I have said it and gotten it out of the way but seriously Echo is everything and then some. If I could have one of my Book Boyfriends come to life Echo would definitely be in my top 5 maybe even a tie for 1st or 2nd place. Echo is 100% DOMINANCE and PROTECTIVE and ALPHA MALE!
