Hang on tight. When it comes to love, this loyal soldier plays rough.

Two years ago I would’ve made a play for a guy like “Bam” in a heartbeat. That was before my father died in a puddle of blood in the middle of a parking lot, before I swore off his fellow bikers and their stupid “business.” But I still need answers about what happened to my dad, which is why I

Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
4.5 Bam stole my heart Stars

Rough Ride, the 4th book in the True Brothers MC series, was so good. This book is Stitch's Daughter Amber and Bam's story. I love seeing them get their HEA. In the last book my heart broke when Stitch was killed. So seeing the aftermath of his death and how strong his family ending up becoming was bitter sweet. Bam in the last book made some mistakes and felt like he let his brothers down. I loved seeing Bam as a strong protector in this book. He was sexy, tough,
Amber’s father, a True Brother club member, was shot a year ago. She is adamant about finding information leading to the person who was responsible but has been stonewalled by the club. When she questions someone from the Russian mafia about it, things take a slight turn. And suddenly she’s being thrown over Bam’s shoulder and ushered out of the meeting. The last thing she wants is to get involved with a club member but Bam’s constant vigilance slowly begins to wear her down.

If you are like me and enjoy a good MC book but want it as a safe read without all the club women and cheating, then you need to read this series by Gillian Archer. It's completely safe. Well, there is violence but you don't have to worry about the men straying. It may take them a bit to acknowledge their feelings but so far the men are loyal to the women.

This one was a bit more exciting due to the fact the Amber drew the attention of Ruslan from the Russian mafia. It's not a love triangle but h

I got what I asked for...this is Bam's book. Bam looks like a Viking and takes what he wants which happens to be Stitch's daughter, Amber. She's had it rough since the last book taking care of her family, but Bam swoops in and helps out. Amber does something stupid which gets her unwanted attention from a crazy Russian. Now who's up next I'm not really sure.

OMG!!! You know that moment when you open your Kindle and the next book. But you kind of "forgot" that you had the book. And then you were like, "wait a sec, didn't this series end?". And then you start reading it, and you're like, "HOLY. MOLY. YEEEEEEEES!!!!", because you realize that it's THAT series. The series that you find yourself re-thinking about. Yep. That's EXACTLY how I felt with this one.

Pretty good read. It just seemed a tad flat. The interaction between the two at first seemed YA the you hit 52% and then it turned into a sex fest. Not much MC stuff just a touch. Some action at the end. It just seemed flat and cookie cutterish. The characters were nothing to get excited about. Bam and Amber did not have the piazza that makes you integrested and reading because you can’t wait to read about them. It did not hold my attention like the previous books. It wasn’t a bad read, it just ...more

This is the first book by Gillian that I have read and I am sooo glad that I did. I absolutely loved this book and now will be going back and reading the first 3 in the series. :)

I'm a sucker for a good MC romance and Bam & Amber gave me everything that I could hope for in an MC couple - from there bickering and chaos to there happy moments and love, it really was a great novel.

Not only that but it was very well written, often times I feel like MC novels can be too unrealistic but this one was j

Why haven’t I read this series from the start. I love MC stories and once I started reading Bam & Amber’s Story I was hooked. Bam & Amber were meant to be but Ruslan might have something too say about that. Between the crazy shoot outs to losing a love one and finding love, this story had it all. I will definitely get one clicking the other books in this series. ...more
Quickly paced and well written, Rough Ride is the 4th book in a series of standalones. Rough Ride was my introduction to the series and I had no trouble diving right in and staying there.

Amber is a woman looking for answers and grasping at the strings holding her family together. When she finally gets close to those answers, Bam swoops in to get her out of there and their chemistry is explosive. Amber is tough and determined. Bam is just swoon-worthy. He’s the tall, silent type, he can be ruthl

Mafia and tongues and threats to your balls. You sure know how to live.

Ha! How on earth does one get over a sexy Viking-looking caveman biker? You don’t.

If you’ve ever wondered about how Gillian Archer manages to keep people from their beauty sleep, let her introduce you to Bam Bam and Kitten, both the main characters in her fourth installment of the True Brothers MC series, Rough Ride.

This is a great read – definitely has a bit of a slow start but really picks up after the first few chapters. The hero in this book, Bam Bam, is probably one of my favorite characters in a long time – he’s swoon worthy.

Amber’s father was president of the True Brothers MC until he was murdered. Now, Amber wants nothing to do with the club as they’ve pretty much turned their backs on she and her mother plus they’re not willing to give her details on her fathers death. On a mission to ensure that t

I am hooked on the True Brothers MC series and was glad that now we have Bam Bam’s story. Even though Amber was a MC Princess she had to leave college to take care of her grief stricken mother, Brittany, so that there was someone home to take care of all the bills and pull her mother out of her own puke since she had hit the bottle since her husband was gone. None of the True Brothers MC, including her own brother who was prospecting for them, was around since her dad died to help out in anyway ...more

There are times that even though he doesn't want to admit it, I think Bam gets all jealous, “flowers? What flowers?” Bam demanded." Bam is often times flustered around his woman, “I don’t have standards .” Bam closed his eyes and bit out a curse. “I mean I have standards— clearly— but that’s not what this is about. I just— Eff, why is it so hard to get words out?” I think it's so cute that Bam doesn't understand what his woman is trying to say at times, “You’ve never been with a biker?” Bam blin ...more

Rough Ride by Gillian Archer is the fifth book in her True Brothers MC series and I loved it from first page to the last one. This is Bam's story and one very strong MC Princess, Amber.

Amber has had to step up and be the adult in her family after her father Stitch was killed by a rival Wild Riders MC. Her mom, Brittany Coles is coping with her grief with a bottle so Amber gets a job in

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) This book was the fourth in the series and I hope you read the previous four to get a better feel..This book was all about the Bam, he was it to me. Amber was annoying to me at first but she eventually won me over and yes I did take into consideration what she went thru and what she was going thru. We had some funny moments that I really liked to combat some of the sadness..

I loved Bam from the old books and feel that Amber was a good partner for him. The beginning was rough and sad but I liked how strong in showed that Amber was. She was able to step up to the plate and while some of her choices were crazy she did what she had to.

Rough Ride is part MC romance, with a dash of crazy Russian mob, and a Romeo/Juliet twist! Having read the previous books, I knew I enjoyed the world Archer created. Bam and Amber's story was delightful!

Amber's dad, Stitch, was in the True Brothers MC until he was shot by a rival gang member and died. Amber's mom crumbled under her grief and her brother abandoned them. Amber had to quit college, take a job as a cocktail waitress at a local casino, and assume the role of adult of the house-

This is a story about Bam and Amber. Amber’s father was in the same MC as Bam and was killed last year by a rival MC. Because of this, I didn’t see how these two would work out.

I snatched this book up because I’d seen a conversation about reader on Facebook about how good this series is. A reviewer friend shared their enthusiasm. However, Rough Ride failed to grab onto me like I expected. Amber has sworn off bikers after her dad was murdered because of his club affiliation. After Bam hauls her out of the Russian Mafia’s club, she dismissed her resolve and gets close to Bam. Bam knows he can’t touch the club princess and yet he does.

After reading the first three books in this series and liking them, I looked forward to reading this one. Bam and Amber were secondary characters in the previous books. They’re both young. Amber is 21 and has been grieving over the loss of her father, Stitch, one of the senior club members. Her Mother has went of the deep end in grief and Amber has had to assume the lead role in taking care of the family. Bam, previously a probate, has had his patch less than a year.

Rough Ride is the fourth novel in Gillian Archer's True Brothers MC romance series, a series I've been following since the first book, and a series I've truly enjoyed, but for this reader, Rough Ride fell a little short of my high expectations. I'd given all of the previous 3 novels in this series 5-star ratings, but in my opinion, this one just didn't quite measure up to those earlier novels, and for that reason, I'm giving this novel 4 stars.

Amber and Bam do not have the greatest respect for each other upon their first official meeting. Amber has found herself in a bit of a situation after going off on her own to find answers to her father's death. She wants assurances that the man who murdered her father has been at least made to suffer for his death. Amber gets stonewalled by the True Brothers MC so she takes matters into her own hands. She gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself the attention of the Russian mafia. ...more
