BOOK REVIEW- MAKE IT HURT (TEXAS BOUNTY) BY JACKIE ASHENDEN
The Texas Bounty series heats up as a female bounty hunter goes toe-to-toe with the tantalizing biker who never stopped loving her.
Nora Sutcliffe enjoys having tough guys at her mercy—preferably in handcuffs. The best fugitive recovery agent in the business, Nora always gets her man. But when her latest pursuit leads her to a notorious biker hangout, she’s reunited with “Smith”: the one man who was too hot for Nora to handle. Once upon a time, she was a rich girl and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now she needs his help, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
Eight years ago, Smith let a pretty little Texas debutante break his heart. He picked up the pieces, went to hell and back with the army, then rode out of the darkness with a gang of outlaws at his back. The last thing he needs is a blast from the past like Nora, who has reinvented herself as a gun-toting badass with the stones to challenge him in front of the whole club. But if she thinks Smith will give up one of his brothers for a single night of pleasure, she’s in for a rude awakening. AMAZON 3.5 STARS
I liked both of the tough main characters. There was a lot of history that was being dragged into the present. They had tried to forget, ignore it for 8 years but that isn't going to work any longer. I liked how we got to see some of both Smith and Nora's inner dialogue with themselves. When they were honest with themselves, they really were. Brutally honest, that is. Sometimes they paid attention to it and at others that stuffed it down. But it won't stay down for long.
Have to admit, I began to wonder just before the 80% mark , how are all the things in the story going to work out?
I have to say that there seemed to be more sex than plot to the book. Definitely detailed and erotic.
Nora was definitely a kick-butt, in your face kinda gal and I liked that. Smith also was not a good guy according to him. But I did see some redeeming qualities to him. Just was hoping for more
when it came to this book.
This was a complimentary e-copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley. And this is my opinion of it.
