Book Review, Giveaway: Chrome by Rie Warren 2

With a Heart Forged in Steele

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. Not even Boomer Steele.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Note to readers: this book addresses the issue of domestic abuse.

My Review:


I finished reading Rie Warren’s Chrome 2 days ago, and I don’t think I have actually caught my breath yet.  I do believe it is her best work yet.  Oh my, my!   So sweet – yet full of expletives and highly erotic!  While the story had some rather tragic background elements that haunt the characters, the romance was dear and precious – which is not something I expect to find in a MC book, especially when the narrator is the President of the MC club and a big brooding alpha male.  But I adored this couple, they were perfectly suited, well matched, and they not only saved but healed each other.  The writing was well paced, highly amusing, and passionate and extremely steamy – and by that I mean planet Mars volcanically hot.  I enjoyed the clever humor and witty banter as the characters teased and heckled each other, but the sweet and sensual love story took center stage – oh happy day!

A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.
