 Scorpions MC Prequel: RYDER
Author: Jani Kay
Release Date:  January 28, 2014

 Amazon.com  Amazon.ca  Amazon.uk


All Jade ever wants is an intelligent, well-mannered, and highly educated man like her daddy. One who has stellar career prospects as he climbs the corporate ladder to success. A good provider who will give her a stable life and a gorgeous house in the right neighborhood. A charmed life.
Everything orderly and well balanced.
Her perfect match.
Isn't that what every woman wants?
What she doesn’t want is a smartass, cocky, rough-around-the-edges biker. One who has tattoos and piercings, and looks like a sex god. One who is demanding and controlling. The ultimate alpha male who storms into her life and shakes her to the core.
Jade never saw it coming. Ryder is the one man she can’t resist. He shows her what she really needs. Him.

All Ryder wants is inner peace. Freedom from the hatred churning in his gut.
Since his mother deserted him, his life has turned to sh*t.
He’s killed a man, lost his brother and fought for his survival. All before turning twelve.
Saved by Razor and Cobra, sons of the Scorpions, he owes his life and allegiance to them. The Scorpion MC is his only family. One he will serve and protect till his dying breath.
What he doesn’t need in his life is a smart mouthed woman who thinks she’s better than him. One who pushes every one of his buttons. One who challenges him to want to be more than a drifter. One who makes him question everything he’s ever known.
Ryder never saw it coming. He can’t get Jade out of his head. She shows him what he really wants. Her.

ARC Review
Published: January 28, 2014

My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

Working in her uncle's real estate office, Jade is hoping to pick up some handy experience to go along with her law degree. Her daddy had set the bar high and although she did want a future with a like-minded man with a successful corporate career, she wouldn't be left behind to stoke the home fires. She was going to make a success of herself as well. The rough looking biker walking into her uncle's office looking to rent a property didn't fit that bill, and although he made her tingle, his attitude pissed her off good!

Adopted at a young age by members of the Scorpions MC, Ryder escaped an already miserable childhood turning even uglier. With his mother dying, killing a man, losing his brother and doing some hard time in juvie, he had enough baggage to last him a few lifetimes. When one of his 'saviors', now prez of the Scorpions MC, needs him to step up and take care of the family, Ryder doesn't hesitate, he owes his MC family everything. And the snooty, pinned up real estate chick who is judging him, doesn't have a clue.

Despite getting off on a contentious foot with Ryder, Jade can't help but think about him constantly and Ryder finds himself with a certain smart-mouthed priss on the brain. A business arrangement putting them together every few weeks settles the tempers somewhat but seems to flame their attraction. And when some initial misunderstandings are cleared up and nothing but their clothes are in the way, it doesn't take long for them to ignite.


You couldn't be further apart than these two. Not only in background, but in life styles, expectations, hopes.....just about anything and everything. It's going to be an interesting starting point for the first full novel to take off from!!

Jade......oh, Jade... a snooty brat, rather full of herself and what she thinks she deserves and should have. A very structured outline she has in mind for her future, the privilege of the rich. But I see hope for her, there is a soft core there aching to come out, a less selfish side that has been overlayered with years of spoiling and indulging. She shows glimpses of the person she can become.......the steel spine is there......now lets see if she can develop a strong personality as well!

Potty-mouth!! Ryder can't spell out a sentence without swearing up a storm.....it helps, I guess, to paint the contrast between the characters from the get go..... but tone it down, buddy. I know you're badass.....no need to lay it on so thick. Sometimes less is more, ya know? This man has had a godawful childhood, some of what is described is truly hard to read, so I warn you if you are sensitive. He has had no examples in his life whatsoever, of what a love looks like or feels like. NONE. Only now, as an adult does he see it around him..... 

To me, Ryder is by far the more interesting character, although I think Jade is going to have to turn out to be one tough cookie if she is going to be able to handle a complex man like him. Very, very curious to see where this is going to take us.......

✨A sexy damaged biker & an entitled legal princess..... icepack anyone??✨

Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the
sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar
on a book - always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape
her world for a while and see through someone else's eyes.

Besides reading, her favorite 'thing' is
traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and
has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately
want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after
midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.
Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to
write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and
Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet
exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).
