“If you are a sucker for an intense, growly, over-protective, gruff biker with a heart of gold, even though he doesn't realize it, then this is the book for you!”

The Riot MC is facing a storm of problems. The worst being a traitor amongst them.

Nora Ellis never met a biker, until the night Noah “Yak” Spencer came to her rescue after her disastrous bachelorette party. It doesn’t take long for her to see the heart of gold beneath his tough-guy exterior. When Nora finds out her ex-fiancĂ© was cheating, Yak is there. When a dire health crisis threatens to tear her life apart, Yak helps her keep it together. Even though the timing is truly lousy, Nora quickly finds herself longing for more than friendship with the sexy biker…

For Nora’s sake, Yak needs to keep his distance. Sure, she’s everything he has ever wanted—gorgeous, smart, and tough as nails. But with the problems she’s facing, Yak decides she's untouchable. Until Nora hints she wants more.

Nora doesn’t belong in his world. Her involvement could get her killed. Still, Yak can’t stay away. As matters with the club become deadly, how far will he go to protect the woman he has grown to love?

“Right. I appreciate you insisting someone go with me today.”

“No need to thank me for that, Nora.”

I tilted my head as I quirked my lips. “Maybe not, but it was supposed to be Mia going with me –obviously that flew out the window– and I thought I could handle it alone. Making Trixie go with me was a Godsend, so thank you.”

He put the sliced bananas in a Ziploc bag, sealed it, and shoved it into the freezer. His expression appeared wary as he stalked toward me.

At the edge of the counter, he stopped and crossed his arms on his t-shirt clad chest. “You’re welcome. You could have called instead of traipsing over here.”

My insides froze. This had become awkward. Awkwardness between me and Yak was a first - and that was saying something given how we met and everything thereafter.

I nodded. “You’re right. I’m sorry to bother you.”

His lips pressed into a thin line while his eyes closed and he shook his head. On an exhale he looked me in the eyes. “It’s not that you’re a bother, Nora.”

My eyes widened. “Doesn’t sound that way.”

A ghost of a grin flitted across his face. “You’re a temptation, princess. One I have to resist.”

A swooping sensation filled my belly. Maybe Trixie was right.


His brow arched. “Why what?”

“Why do you have to resist?”

He shook his head. “Nora, you’re… you want things I can’t give you. Hell, you deserve better than me.”

I moved forward so we were a foot apart. Being this close, I had to tilt my head up to keep eye contact. “Better than you? What does that mean?”

“You deserve the man who can give you stability, marriage, kids, and all that shit.”

I scoffed. “After the past week, I’m not looking for marriage, and given my lousy judgment, I’m pretty sure stability is overrated.”

His hand dragged down his cheek stubble. “Don’t let that asshole do that to you, Nora. He’s a moron, and out there is a man who will absolutely do right by you.”

Part of me wanted to ask if he was that man, but I knew he’d say no. Which of course made me think he could absolutely be that man.

I glanced to the side and back to him. “Sometimes, it’s good to give in to temptation.”

He chuckled. “Woman, I manage a place that is all about temptation. It’s better to resist it.”

I nodded. “You’re right. We shouldn’t.”

He licked his bottom lip before he bit it while he nodded. 

“But I really want to,” I muttered.

“Nora,” he admonished, chuckling.

I stepped into his personal space and put a hand on his shoulder. “Thanks, Noah. For everything.” I leaned up to kiss the side of his lips. Except Yak turned and our lips locked together fully.

I pulled back, my mouth opening to apologize, but Yak’s arms wrapped around me and he kissed me outright.
