Saving Dallas Tour Stop!! 9


 

When the self-righteous, millionaire bachelorette, Dallas Knox walks into Hattiesburg’s largest night club she is looking for one thing – a one night stand with no strings attached. What she doesn’t expect is to find herself at the mercy of the Devil’s Renegades Motorcycle Club and their President-Luke Carmical.Luke is dangerous, sexy, and dark. The life he lives is far different from the privileged life Dallas is accustomed to.

Can she accept the lifestyle of an MC?

Can she handle the domineering nature of Luke?

Or is it too late to save Dallas from the path she has chosen…

 This book introduced a new and original concept for me: the alpha female.  We’ve all read books with alpha males, sure, but this one not only had the alpha male, but the alpha female too.  It makes for quite an interesting interaction between the H/h in this book, let me tell ya.
Dallas is rich and used to getting what she wants.  She goes to a club one night in order to find a hot piece to take home for an evening of the horizontal mambo when she meets Luke.  Luke is not like any other man she has met.  He’s a badass President of a Motorcycle Club and he gives just as good as he gets.  Thus begins a pretty intriguing tale  murder and general mayhem, with a few lies thrown in for good measure.
What I liked about this book were the characters.  Dallas is pretty kick-ass, and in a book world dominated by women who aren’t strong and resilient, Dallas is definitely in a league of her own.  And Luke was everything I like in a leading man.  Sexy, strong, a little bit naughty (ok, a lot naughty) and fierce.
The concept of the plot had a lot of potential, but I just didn’t feel it was executed very well.  There were several times I got a bit confused about events that took place, so much so that I had to go back and re-read passages.  Plus, there were some things that didn’t quite make sense to me. There are some questions surrounding the thriller mystery aspect to the plot that left me scratching my head, because the characters didn’t seem overly concerned for most of the book that someone was trying to kill Dallas.   I would find that a wee bit concerning.  And by wee bit, I mean a lot.
Overall, even with some of the more questionable aspects of the book, I enjoyed reading it.  I will warn you that it has a rather abrupt cliffhanger ending.  If I didn’t have the second book to delve right into, I’m not so sure how I would have taken this.  As it stands, I give this book 3 stars.

 

She went searching for a one night stand and ended up falling in love with Luke Carmical, President of the Devil’s Renegades Motorcycle Club. Now she must decide how to handle the aftermath of Frankie’s brutal assault and the
knowledge that Luke has been lying to her- about everything. Secrets are revealed and more lies exposed as Dallas Knox, CEO of Knox Companies, becomes more involved in the MC. She wonders if this life is enough for her, if this family is really what she wants. When circumstances present her with an unusual twist of fate, Dallas knows without a doubt, thatthis is the family she has longed for. New problems occur, traumatic events take place and lives hang in the balance as Dallas has to decide what is really most important in life.
The journey is long.

The outcome is uncertain.

Can she Make the Cut?

This book pretty much starts off right where Saving Dallas ended.  Dallas must decide if she can move forward with Luke after what she has discovered.  Is the life with the MC what she really wants?  Can she trust Luke with her  heart?  How many times can one have sex standing up against the wall or in the shower (not enough would be the correct answer)?  These questions, and more, make up the bulk of this second installment.
I will say I was happy that Dallas’ character was true to life in this book.  She flips out.  Flips. Out.  I say, any woman faced with what she does deserves a major flip out.  So, kudos to Dallas.  Let that freak flag fly, honey.  As with the first book, I liked Dallas quite a bit.  I felt a bit let down by the other characters in this book, however.  They just seemed to pale in comparison, and didn’t seem strong enough to really challenge her character.  Also, this book
had a rushed feeling to it.  I didn’t get the resolution that I was hoping for after reading the first, as far as the character development went.  I thought that Luke could have been a bit deeper, but he just seemed so hot and cold
towards Dallas.  It is my opinion that it’s difficult to do an alpha male justice, because there’s a thin line between alpha and asshole.  Luke veers very close to asshole territory and even crosses into it a few times in this book.  I didn’t  understand his motivations completely and found him to be a bit confusing.
Now, ladies and any gents who may be reading this, the sex in this book is…awesome.  I will give it that.  I’m a big fan of the sexy time in romance novels, and if a book could be rated on the sex scenes alone, this would be a five star read.  The sex is superb.  The rest of the book needs some work.  3 stars.
