Jodi - Some people might take a step back when they run into this guy. Although the way his eyes pierce mine, it’s as if he’s allowing me to see the kindness that’s hidden within.

Bark - Those I consider deserve to die, will be killed by me, without any remorse. I’m a man who will get close enough in a fight so I can enjoy seeing the life of another person slipping through

Want a steamy, short and safe MC story? Esther Schmidt has really delivered when it comes to packing a punch in a short read. I hope she keeps adding to this series.

HERO~ Bark- I'm not going to lie, when we first meet him, he doesn't give the best first impression. I don't care to hear about him with other women. He was just callous about it and it didn't add anything to the story FOR ME. That being said, the minute he sees the heroine Jodi, that's it. He is protective and bossy. It

If you're following my reviews, you know that words aren't my strong point. Most of the time I struggle to find right words to express myself. And now... *sighs* To review Esthers books becomes even harder. Because with each damn book she hits the jack pot, with each H of hers that steals a piece of my heart, and kickass awesome h, I start to become like a damn broken record with the same damn words. So, yeah, you got it by now. Bark is awesome. That dirty sexy mouth of his... That man... I just ...more

It's so easy to love the alpha men in Lost Valkyries MC series! They are all rough, possessive and very protective of their mates and VP, Bark was not different. Although he was tasked to get further intel on a new beauty shop in the community, little did he know that the woman he admired for her backside in the beauty shop was none other than 'the one' but also the one on his hit list pile. But due to excessive cleaning at the compound causing a misplacement of said note by Prez Ronin's ol' lad ...more
Great addition. Loved it. Love when they are together the whole time. Great read. Bark:"People fall in love all kinds of ways. Love at first sight, or slowly until it settles, or just feel comfortable with the right person to share their life with. I'm wondering if a person can fall in love with an ass? Head over heels assdoration."

I licked Bark first dang it only to lose him to a sassy, feisty hairdresser *insert dramatic slightly hysterical sobs* Hot, sexy, alpha as they come, Bark really ticks those boxes in big, smoking hot red marker ticks. Like the mother of all red ticks... Huge! I think he even out ticks Ronin *gasps slightly in disbelief* Oh and his hidden assets, be still my beating heart. Josie is unique, feisty and a great addition to the Lost Valkyries MC family. Each time Esther even remotely hints at finishi ...more

OMG how does this author manage to keep surprising me and each book getting better than the one before, when the one before was already fantastic. Honestly I loved Jodi and Bark, the connection is instant between them. I was sucked in and my attention held from the first to the last word, it could have gone on and on for all I cared I still would have been reading it. So good, interesting and intense with a small amount of violence and some swearing. It also contains some sexual content that is ...more

This is probably one of the best and hottest books that I have read in a while. It was slow to build, but I completely agree with Bark and his decision to wait until everything hanging over Jodi's head was resolved. Jodi has her sweet innocence, and Bark is used to barking out orders. He has a sweet side when dealing with Jodi that I absolutely loved. These two are so good together.

I received an ARC and voluntarily reviewed it.

I love this author and i love this series.
From the minute that Bark was introduced i loved him. This book was a slow build up but i loved the fact that Bark didn't just want to get into bed like asap, he took time to spend with her and to get to know her, and that's what I loved. He took care of Jodi and made sure she was safe.

Jodi can't believe that someone wants to kill her and then on the same day she meets a man who wants her and wants to take care of her.

This was a page turner for sure. Bark’s M.C. got a request to blow up Jodi’s salon and when Bark goes to check out the salon he sees Jodi’s ass and its lust at first sight! I loved Bark and Jodi. Bark’s all alpha and Jodi is a cute type of crazy lol. This was a great quick read! I’ll be reading the rest of this series!

I loved Jodi and Bark's story so much! Esther E. Schmidt did an amazing job on this story, but let's be honest thought, all of her works' are awesome and every time you read something new from her, you keep yourself on edge, waiting for more :)

Jodi was a sweet, with a good-heart girl but was not a doormat but also not an alpha either. It's a weird combination but it worked for her character blending with Bark's character, who's rough, direct, dominant, determined and a bit dark who enjoyed endin

Who loves quick, romance reads of the MC variety? **raising hands** and if you add to that the author is Esther E. Schmidt…well, yah – I am all over getting my hands on anything she writes. Bark is book 3 in the Lost Valkyries MC series. This is a quick read that you won’t want to put down for anything! Esther E. Schmidt doesn’t disappoint with her stories of alpha’s that only have a heart for one woman.

Bark is another fantastic MC read from one of my favorite authors. Esther always delivers gr

Head over heels ASSDORATION!!! Again I can not experience how much I love Esther's writing. I could not put it down once I started to read it. Esther's books keep getting better and better. Bark was a strong, dirty talking alpha male and once he saw Jodi he knew she was the one for him. He was protective of her from the start. I loved how Esther showed us how much he would protect her from everything. "Turning around, I witness a visual that's similar to two wolves circling each other. Ronin and ...more
Excuse me, but could we have another please? That's what I want to ask with in minutes of finishing my first read through of Bark and Fox's story! I'm honestly blown away ( Ha!) with how well Esther is able to combine some seriously dark stuff with a hot and steamy romance!

Bark is the VP and a man you don't want to mess with. Screw up, hurt someone he loves or just be dumb in spades and he will come for you. He lives by the code of his MC with a respect and dedication to rival most. He knows tha

Esther E Schmidt delivers another hot steamy ride that is intriguing, exciting, fast paced and doesn't take you on long winding roads. It is straight ahead, pedal to the medal, full speed ahead action, and not only between the sheets! This is another well written book with a story line that attacks you quickly and latches on to you without releasing you until you've reached the end of the book. I love Esther's work because of the fast pace of her books. They never drag and have you wanting to sk ...more

This is the third book in the series and they can be read as standalone books. This is a short instalove book. The men of the Lost Valkyries MC know when they meet their other half right away. They are tough, tattooed, alpha males who know how to show the women they love how they feel. And will do anything to protect them. Bark is fantastic. I love him so hard. Jodi Fox has finally made her dream come true. She has opened a hair salon. They only problem is that there is another salon in town and ...more

So anyone who has read my reviews knows that I’m a massive fan of this author. I love how even though these books are a quick read of insta type love they lack in nothing you still get your hot alpha biker . Bark maybe dangerous and rough around the edges. I love his reaction when he sees Jodi for the first time. As I said he is rough around the edges but also has a hidden depth I can’t really say to much because I don’t want to ruin it for you. Jodi isn’t like all the other heroines in Esther’s ...more

Awesome!, that's how I feel about this book! I want Bark of my own!!! He is definitely the defection of alpha male, I love this book for so many reasons 1: it only 10 charters 2: its packed full of hotness 3: its so perfectly written. 4: its inta kind of love! Sometimes as short story is just what you need! You get so engrossed in the story you feel like you know Bark and Jodi personally, you feel the attraction they have for one another right away, Bark is possessive, but loving ,kind and compa ...more

No one writes a Hot Fast Raced Story like Esther Schmidt, and Bark is no exception. It Hard hitting action from the first chapter to the end. Be it MC business or Ole Lady business, this author doesn't mess around. It's one of the many things I love about her writing style.

As for Bark, what a wonderful storyline and the characters are just so darn lovable, even when Bark is quite literally barking out orders. The Valkyries MC are known for taking hit jobs. But only if they deem them necessary.

Another great quick insta love read from Esther.

Bark is checking out a job sent to the Lost Valkyries. Jodi is finally realizing her dream of opening her own salon. When a mix up happens they are thrown into each others lives. Can Bark save Jodi from the danger? I absolutely loved the tie between the two characters that they were unaware of - added a great touch. These may be short stories, but they are full stories. There is action, dirty talk and yes, even humor. And the cherry on top - an epi

Esther E. Schmidt did a fantastic job on Bark. The story was well written and had a great plot. I couldn't put this book down. Bark and Jodi were strong characters. They had in insta attraction. They were wonderful together. Their connection was strong and the chemistry was off the charts sexy. I just love a protective, obsessive and possessive Alpha and a sweet yet sassy, feisty heroine. This is a great book. I recommend reading this story and the series. You won't be disappointed, Esther E. Sc ...more

This was a short, hot, intense read. I’m surprised a little at Bark and his character. I thought he would be more caveman but he was more lover. I’m normally not one for short quick reads because sometimes I feel the author rushes through a story. This however was not the case. First time reading this author. Definitely won’t be my last. I won this copy through a giveaway and very thankful since I found a new author I enjoy.

Bark starts off with a figurative and literal boom. Fast paced action keeps on going throughout the story. Readers are drawn into the insta love between Jodi & Bark. Jodi is sassy and self confident. Bark is broody, alpha and has a bark worse then his bite. Together they are the perfect couple. Their chemistry is off the chart. As a reader you can see the steam come off the pages. Another great installment to the Lost Valkyries series.

This is the first book I tried his series I e read and OMG it was absolutely brilliant that Ive gone out and brought the first two books. These sexy hot alpha Mc men are tough but love equally has hard, Bark is a strong sexy man and Jodi is a confident strong woman but together they make a awesome team. This is a Mc Series and I loved every minute of this book once I started I was so into the story that before I New I was at the end. Esther E Schmidt writes hot sexy books.

I don’t know how Esther does it! Her stories are so life like and real. I really enjoyed Bark.

Bark is looking for something that is missing from his life. Will he ever be able to find what his grandmother had?

Jodi has taken a devastating blow, and needs to figure out how to get back on track. Can this rough biker truly help her?

This is a book is fast paced and when you are done you will be like where is the rest.

I don't know how Esther Schmidt does it but i swear each book gets better! Bark is the alpha biker with tats and piercings who has never been in love. He knows what love is from his grandmother. Jodi is smart with a touch of sass. The attraction is immediate but the connection takes time but when they do it is 🔥🔥🔥!
This is a quick read with all the necessary parts to make you smile and start waiting for the next book!
** recieved ARC is return for honest review.**

I really love this series of short, steamy insta-love stories!
But this one felt different in a very good way. It had a perfect mix of love and action. But what I really loved was the twist of a past connection between our main characters. So sweet and made me think there was something or someone more than fate that guided them to each other.
As always Esther Schmidt has packed a lot of story in a small amount of pages. She never disappoints!

And we have another winner from Esther!! I know that when I pick up one of her books I will always be in for the read of my life. If it was against the law I would have been in jail for how fast I was reading and all the emotions I was going through. I just dont know how she keeps coming up with all these good stories. One has to wonder if maybe she might be writing from real life maybe?
