Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly, into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.

Some princesses wear silk and tulle; not our princess.
Some princesses dream of a valiant prince upon his faithful steed; not our princess.
Our princess wears leather pants and corset, high-heeled boots and rides her own damn Harley! Our princess is a Club Princess. Shay O’Donnell is daughter not to a King, but the Prez of Heroes Pride Motorcycle Club, Grant’s Pass, Oregon. Her kingdom is her newly opened Biker Babe shop where bikers and ...more
Biker Babe was my first Audrey Carlan book and so much fun to read. It is an insta-love story that gives you everything you could want inside the pages. Even though it was instant love for our leading characters doesn’t mean it was all that easy. Some things had to be gone through to actually get their happily ever after! Our supporting characters are tough, loving and a whole lot of fun. Some are kind of intense a ...more
It's been some time now since a new release by the author came out, so the moment I heard about this new series, I was over the moon!
Biker Babe is fairly short but does not lack detail, or substance for that matter. It's an insta-love that holds heat, suspense, drama and what is promised to be an epic series of books.
Shay is a smart, driv ...more
Audrey Carlan is a new-to-me author. (I like to read at least one a month)
Short/Novellas stories so if I didn't mesh with it it wouldn't be a huge investment.
The promise of heat and sweet.
For my taste, the story was a lot over the top. Like unnecessarily OTT. Everything about it was over the top. By adding even just a chapter or two, the story-line could have been a bit more realistic and still stayed within the category of short/novella. I'm not going to ...more
I know this is hard to believe but this is the first book I have read by Audrey Carlan. When I heard she had a new series releasing I jumped at the chance to read and review.
Excited to have opened her shop Biker Babe, Shay is determined to make it a success. The last thing she needs is to be attracted to Rex.
I really enjoyed Biker Babe, from start to finish Ms. Carlan drew me in and held me captive with the story she wove about Shay a ...more
This was a quick novella read however unfortunately it fell short for me. Everything felt OTT and the dialogue was over exaggerated. I never felt like I got to know the characters very well or felt any connection between them apart from sexual chemistry. I adore this author so I will check out future books in the series.

Great read. I love how Rex is all alpha and take what he wants. I bet he didn’t expect the little twist that came out of his decision. Shay is the princess and
Everyone knows this. Shay and Rex are the perfect MC couple. Excellent writing.

What a fun & sexy read! Audrey Carlan puts her own spin on MC and adds a huge dose of sexy! In her own words Audrey states The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat, but don’t forget the sweet. It is a traditional MC story in many ways like old ladies, “club business”, and lots of alpha males. It is refreshing and full of classic biker (MC) vibes.
We had no desire to run drugs, gu ...more
Biker Babe is a novella about a beautiful, bad-ass biker princess. Her dad is the president of the Hero’s Pride biker club and her mom is his one and his only old lady. Shay is the biker princess and she has opened her very own bik ...more

Biker Babe is the first book in the Biker Beauties series written by author Audrey Carlan. This steamy novella tells the story of Shay O’Donnell and Taggart (Rex) Crawford. Shay’s father is the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, Oregon chapter, and Rex is their new VP. He recently transferred from the California chapter where his father’s the president.
As the club’s princess, all of the members are very protective ...more
I was excited when I heard we were getting a new series and I wasn’t disappointed because this book gave me everything I want in a first book and I was certainly left wanting more from the Hero’s Pride MC members and their families and friends.
Shay aka Princess is the daughter of the president of the Hero’s Pride MC so technically she should be off limits to all members of the MC but the new Vice President has othe ...more
I have only read one other MC series, and I liked it but didn’t love it. So I did not think MC books were for me. But I was wrong; it just had to be written by Audrey Carlan! I loved several of her series', so this is why I wanted to try this book. I am so glad I did, because I loved it from the beginning! They first meeting between Shay & Rex was sizzling, and I was hooked! You have to be good with insta-attraction to insta-love because that is what they have and ...more
*No Spoilers, as I hate reading a review that give the story away before I get a chance to read it myself*
I devoured this novella, it was so good!! If you have read Audrey before, this is so different than everything else she writes but it's so much fun!! It's fast paced and a quick story so don't expect a full sized book but i couldn't put it down. The fiery chemistry between these two bad*** bikers is crazy fun and enjoyable! I can't wait for Shanes, aka Whip, story next, i love a ...more

What a fun weekend read. Biker Babe by Audrey Carlan is a steamy read about an alpha biker trying to stake his claim. His claim may be the President’s daughter, but that does not deter him one bit.
The first scene between Rex and Shay is perfect. Not what Rex expected to run into, but the whole scene sums up the entire book. A man who takes care of his woman. And knows how to take care of her he does. Shay sure does take Rex f ...more
Shay the “Princess” of the pack, untouchable to a lot is in for the ride of her life whether she wants it or not. Try as she might she cant resist the New Alpha Hunk who wants to claim her so soon after meeting. Can you say love at first sight?

This little novella is not only a fairly quick read but it is FREAKING HOT! If you like MC reads and red hot chemistry- this is just the novella for you! When a biker princess meets the new VP sparks fly and it is HOT, HOT, HOT! I am excited that Audrey Carlan decided to make this a series, I definitely am interested in going back into this world!
All in all, do you like steamy reads? Do you like MC reads? Do you like insta-lust/love? If you say yes to these questions, then Bike ...more
The book is a quick fast paced novella about the “club princess” and the man who wants to claim her. Which as most MC readers know claiming a Club Princess is no easy feat. He not only has to get the girl, he’s got to prove to his prez and the entire clu ...more
This was more novella than full novel, but it was a quick and somewhat fun read. I liked the premise - forbidden love is almost always a winner - and the characters were all interesting. It was my first from this author, and I'm reserving judgement until I read at least one more story because everyone has off days when reading; but this one fell a little flat for me.
Everything feels super exaggerated, right from the start. Being plunked down into a story is one thing, but the reactions, ...more
Biker Babe is the first book in a new mc series and it certainly has a lot going for it.
Shay is a biker princess and a rather sassy one at that. She opens her own business and when Rex comes into the picture, needless to say things get incredibly steamy.....oh my goodness. Who else is in need of a cold shower.
Rex is new in town and when Shay catches his eye....he's hooked. But the club has other ideas about Rex and his claim. Interesting things ahead!
Steamy, great banter and a good sta ...more
Rex is the new VP of Hero’s pride after taking a transfer away from his old man. Shay is the princess of the club and very off limits to him. The writing was so authentic to the roles and storyline, but also true to AC style.
I loved everything about this and will be devouring this series as they come out!
Audrey has done it again! Biker Babe is fun and sexy. Loved the characters. Shay is tough enough to hold her own but Rex is the ultimate good guy and wants to be her protector. Mags is awesome and she can keep all these big tough bikers in line. This is a series of novellas so quick and easy reads. I am looking forward to getting to know some of the other characters better in the rest of the series.
This is a new to me other and I definitely will be reading more from her. Her characters are well developed and the storyline is intriguing. Shay and Rex have chemistry instantaneously but there is only one catch- Rex is her dad’s VP in the MC and she is the princess of the club. I’m really looking forward to reading about the other members of the club.
She lives in the Californi ...more
