Running for his life, he takes her along for the ride….

Biker werewolf Levi Harris has a habit of going off half-cocked and getting into trouble. But this time, the trouble just might prove fatal. He’s stolen a trove of information from a powerful vampire mafia network, and they won’t rest until they get it back—and get revenge. His only chance of survival is to extract the information and put it to use before the bad guys catch up with him.
Curvy bombshell Harper Bailey is a good girl with a weak spot for bad boys. When Levi appears, she thinks her dreams have just rolled up on the back of a motorcycle. Little does she know that he’s about to hijack her car and take her straight into the crossfire. But Levi himself might just prove the greatest danger of all….



Ignoring my love/hate relationship with serials, I found only one issue with this read: there were numerous editing issues... at least with my copy. But the story itself was really good, I mean, good enough that I was willing to overlook the editing errors--something I am rarely willing to do.

The story line was interesting and I really look forward to learning more about the characters, though there is a certain amount of suspension of disbelief required regarding Harper, a completely human female. For me, personally, she's a little too perfect. I prefer a female lead that's a little more flawed and a little less "voted person most likely to go though a tornado and come out looking like she's just been to the salon." Levi, on the other hand, hot, hot, HOT! I'll take two of him please, for a Levi sandwich!

I can't wait to read the next installment!
