Family means everything to this tattooed bad boy—good thing since he’s about to start his own.

Mindy Lou's Book Review

Shelves: 2019, biker
Fast is a two worlds collide biker story. Our heroine, Hope is the daughter of the MC President of a 1 perenter club. The hero, Ryan is with a more morally safe biker club, who also happens to have their own reality tv show for the bikes they build.

Hope is not what you would expect from a 1 percenter club and that's only because her dad is a recent figure in her life. She isn't aware of what kind of man and his club are like until he thinks she "disrespects" him when she hooks up with Ryan.

I received a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Ryan works in Badass Builds with his brothers. And the West Coast Kings MC is one of their most important clients. In one party, he meets Hope. And after just one night, she gets pregnant. Will they be meant to be together even if they don't really know each other? And there are more surprises to come...
I was super excited about this book. And I kind of liked it although I was a little bit disappointed. Honestly, I don't thin

Fast is the second book in the Burns Brothers series by Gillian Archer. It can be read as stand-alone though so don't hesitate to one-click it!

I got mislead from the cover and I thought that Ryan and Hope would have a baby that was actually born before their main story began, but the events of the story are happening from the time these two met then when Hope finds out that she is pregnant and we see her pregnancy and how her and Ryan's relationship is evolving. I was a little surprised about th

Loving Ryan!!

How can you not love a guy who stands by the woman who is having his baby?! Sure they met at a biker clubhouse since Ryan and his brothers build specialty bikes for some of the club members even the Prez, T-Bone. His eyes drew to her even though she was by T-Bone which should scare anyone away. Hope had those same eyes for Ryan along with fangirling on the famous reality star. Well, all it took was one night of stepping out on the wild side for Hope and the little stick turned pink.

I had not read the first book but I do not think this matters as it reads fine as a standalone.

Ryan and Hope were a great couple and an unlikely one. I liked that Ryan stood by Hope, there was never any doubt in his mind. It was sort of insta love but I didn't mind.
There was light MC interaction with Hope's dad - who was not a nice guy at all. There was not any angst but there was drama. What is the boys dad up to? Will he get his comeuppance - I expect we will find out in future books. Dyla

What a great story. I had trouble putting this one down. Ryan and Hope were the best mix of hot and awkward lol. I really liked how strong Hope was. She had a backbone and stood up for herself. I may have cheered for her a couple of times. And Ryan was swoony with his dimples and charm.

I'm looking forward to the next book, which is Sabrina's. But I am really aching to get Nathan's story.

So I don’t really remember the first book in this series but I remembered that I enjoyed it and had every intention in reading the next one but my TBR got in the way. Then I saw the sign up for the third book and figured I better get to it since I was intrigued by the sound of that one. So I jumped on in feet first without reading the blurb and remembered the basics of the story line.

So each of these can be read as a stand alone but obviously since they are brothers and they all work together

5 star review of Fast (Burns Brothers #2) by Gillian Archer

Gillian Archer is a new author to me and I have absolutely no idea why. I fell in love with the blurb for this book and I knew that this was going to be a great read.

The path to happiness for Ryan and Hope is certainly a rocky one. Attracted to one another their passion ignites and the chemistry that sizzles between them is scorchingly hot.

Complications arise when Hope learns that she is pregnant. Ryan already has a lot to deal with tha

This is the second book in the series but can easily be read as a stand alone. I LOVED Ryan! Talk about a guy who just needed to find a purpose in life. He didn't know what he was missing until Hope fell into his life. Hope and their baby became his focus--his reason to do better.

Loved the interactions with Ryan and Hope. Sweet and funny at times. Super steamy at other times. They built their friendship despite the situation they found themselves in. Loved how Hope quickly sorted throu

Another hot and yummy tattooed Burns brother falls for a MC Kings daughter. One night is all it takes to make the new generation of Burns. Daddy is not happy, but the Burns boys stick together and Ryan wins in the end.

Baby brother, Dylan, what is wrong with you.

Ryan is just the sweetest man, “want to join me on the balcony while I grill these up? Is chicken okay? I should’ve probably asked, but I didn’t know what you’d like. Can’t go wrong with chicken though. Right? Unless that wouldn’t sit well with your stomach? Do you want something else?” Ryan doesn't really like to ask, "Ryan snorted. “There’s no asking here. You’re doing it.” I liked this book, I loved Ryan. ...more

Ryan and Hopes journey started very unconventional and set the tone for their relationship! It definitely wasn’t easy but they both overcame it all together and with the help of Ryan’s family! This is my first book by this author and I can assure you it won’t be my last! I find myself loving the burns and I want to know more about this right family and see what else unfolds!

Something is wrong with my book-stars these days. I can’t seem to find a book for which I can truly sing some songs of praises. This will be a short review as I really don’t have much to say about this book.

Hope is the daughter of West Coast Kings MC President. She is star-struck when she sees Ryan for the first time. Hope is sweet, innocent and far from a girl who's the daughter of MC club president and so is Ryan, a sexy, charming, considerate guy with an overall pleasant personality. Their ch
This is a sweet, sexy accidental pregnancy story with plenty of familial drama and a bit of motorcycle club thrown in. Hope and Ryan were each kind of sweet, insecure and uncertain. They struggled a lot with just being comfortable around each other and this story revolves around them getting to know the other better as well as when and how to let their families know they were having a baby.


Despite all the family angst, this felt like a low angst read to me. There are plenty of sexy times as wel

I didn't love it but I liked it. It was sweet and managed to surprise me a bit because I expected it to take a little bit different road, but this way it was probably even better. I liked the first book better as it was more like my type of book. I'm not a fan of secret or surprise baby trope but as it was a Burne's brother's story, I just couldn't say no. Gillian Archer is a wonderful writer and she managed to keep my interest throughout all the book, which is not that easy with contemporary bo ...more

Fast is Ryan and Hope's story and as you can see from the blurb, there's a surprise pregnancy.
Only Ryan didn't just knock up some club girl, he knocked up his biggest clients daughter.
Now it's a struggle for them to get to know each other outside the bedroom and keep her father off their backs.
One tragic even threatens everything and leaves Ryan recovering.
I love the Burns brothers, but in this case there's more of a mystery surrounding one or two of them. Honestly their behavior had me looking

Ryan Burns and his brothers own Badass Builds where they design and custom build motorcycles and their latest job has them working for T-Bone, the president of West Coast Kings MC. When he attends a party at the club he meets a woman that he goes home with but when their night ends with a ripped condom things are about to get interesting.

Hope Stephens grew up with her mom but is now living with her father. She is shocked to discover she is pregnant and isn't sure what she is going to do.

This is book two in the Burns Brother series and I have to say, I think I loved this one better. I read the first book and that is where I got a little bit of insight into Ryan and his character. I loved Ryan. From the very first moment, I read about him. This book gave me everything I was looking for in a read. The people are likable and I love the disfunction of the Burns brothers. All of them.

I don’t request many ARCs anymore and it’s even rarer for me to put my hand up for one from a new to me author. But, I’ve heard so much good stuff about Gillian Archer that it caught my attention. Plus, it had a biker and an unexpected baby so I just couldn’t pass it up. Thank goodness my gamble paid off as I ended up enjoying reading it.

There were a couple elements of the book that could have spelled disaster for me. I tend to avoid new adult books and this couple was firmly in that category. I

If you haven't figured it out already this is definitely an adult story. The language was filled with a whole lot of "F's" which I didn't really enjoy all that much. So I had to skim over that as best as I could. Yes, I guess I should have expected some of that but still...
Both Hope and Ryan each share their P.O.V.'s which was good. However, maybe I am too old for this story. Because Hope's naivety was so strong that it almost made my back teeth ache. She's a nice enough girl with a few problems

I enjoyed the first book in this series 'Build' but I loved the 2nd book in the series 'Fast'.

I know that this is sort of classed as an MC but it isn't - the Burn's brother build custom bikes and one of their top customers has been an MC - the West Coast Kings and that is really where the MC bit comes in - the difference with this story is that Hope is the daughter of the president of the Kings - but she hasn't know her dad long so the story doesn't centre on that at all.

So when she met him in person, she couldnt stop herself from going up to him and talking to him. The first time she was star struck, but when he came up to her again at the next party, they hit it off. Hit it off a bit too much... Now there was a
