Clear Blue Sky
by Jenna Byrnes
Respect all, fear none is the Rebel Riders Motorcycle Club’s motto. Will the Riders step up when the Demon Outlaws go after one of their own?Sky Warren doesn’t let the screen door smack him on the way out of Kansas. When his former abusive partner Duke is arrested for selling drugs, Sky takes off. He’s ready for a clean start and a change of scenery. Moving to Lakewood, Colorado, with his cousin and accepting a job in Billy’s bike shop seems like just what he needs to start over. In Billy’s riding club he meets Task Rivers, a handsome, sexy biker, and they hit it off immediately. Task is edgy, yet he shows Sky how a respectful and considerate man treats his partner. The two fall into a lusty, passionate relationship.Death before dishonor. The Demon Outlaws have another way of looking at life. When Duke Lessing comes after Sky and is rebuffed, he joins the Outlaws in their troublemaking ways. With the Demons spoiling for a fight, Task calls on a few of the more hardcore Rebel Riders. As the night heats up, Sky is determined to avoid what seems like inevitable bloodshed. He wants to leave and lure the Demons away, but Task and the Rebel Riders have other ideas. Sky knows Duke doesn’t give up easily and learns that neither does Task, who’s fighting for what he wants. But will it be a fight to the death?
Clear Blue Sky turned out to be my favorite out of this trio of Hard Riders. The reason being not only for what you think but also because of what I learned after reading this little story that could.
I really liked Sky's determination to get over his mistake of not being able to see logic and escape the brutality of an abusive relationship. He was caught in a trap but like any other victim, he did not know how to get out of it. When the chance came out of the blue, he took it and experienced freedom.
Task is the hard rider biker of our dreams and he is gentle as he is tough. His character is a beautiful juxtaposition of the ideal alpha male and the bad boy who skirts the law. He is respectful, kind, caring, a hard worker and just a good man. He is also a mean biker and can do some stuff us legal-minding folks would find uncomfortable.
Their story is a simple one, but it is HOT! When Duke comes in, this became an action-packed read that made me really want to join in the fun. When the guns were pulled out, all I could do was fist pump = I love action!
Then again, I remember the implied marathon and I was like? yeah, thumbs down, clearly impossible! So I read on but posted a question, thinking, you know, I got kids, I'm a woman with experience, so I know right????
Wrong!!! Holy cow! My mind was blown away. Jenna Byrnes not only opened my eyes to the possibility of the impossible but she made sure my imagination ran wild with this one. Plus the kind words of encrouragement (bwahahhaahhaa) from my friends...
Just so you know? This is HOT! and yes, clearly probable and real.
As for Sky and Task, well, their sizzling connection is truly remarkable and if one can call it romantic, so be it. I just can't get over their hotness. I just hope they take the advise from a few of my friends: lubricate, hydrate and pineapple.
Best news: Sky and Task kept at it **smilingoofy** Definitely recommend this one!

Not all cages have bars.The Wyverns Motorcycle Club has a reputation as fierce as its dragon emblem. Its enigmatic leader, Rogue Hellaby, has a police file so thick you could prop up a table with it. The qualifications for membership are a reckless disregard for authority and the attitude of a spitting cobra. But The Wyverns MC is not quite what it seems. All the riders have dubious histories in the military or the police—now they just serve and protect their own interests and those of Horatio Trap, the manipulative bastard who recruited them.When Rogue receives an instruction to kidnap and hold hostage the son of a powerful drug lord, he doesn’t bat an eyelid. But Rogue has never had to deal with a captive like Orlando de la Pena. Orlando is furious—not because he’s being held prisoner, but because he’s prevented from partying at his favorite BDSM club. Rogue discovers that the only way to deal with Orlando is to become the Dom he so obviously needs. But Orlando’s father wants him back, and The Wyverns must face a battle that could cost them their lives. Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light BDSM.
Rogue is tasked by his invisible (un)benefactor to kidnap the son of a high profile drug lord, he thought crap another job he has to go through and yeah, he could do it. Simple. All he needs to do is get to the BDSM club he is a member of, he is a DOM after all, and take it from there. His information had his target as a submissive who liked to go to the club.
Orlando's father was not the best but being the son of a drug lord? Nothing he could do about that. His need for love and recognition clearly ignored, he frequented BDSM clubs to find relief and the possibility of being loved. He sees this biker and he is just sunk in all the muscles and tattoos. This was a man he could imagine being dominated by.
What should have been a simple under-thirty minutes of fun in the rooms of the club and straight on to kidnapping captivity turned into something else entirely. Rogue found a sub he could finally connect with. How he was going to keep the boy and yet stop the father from killing him was a question he still could not answer. When the minions of said father comes to claim the son, bullets flew every which way and bodies fell.
Although this is a BDSM story, it is not as hard core as I thought it would turn out. Truth is, it is a sweet take on that lifestyle and the author clearly focuses on the relationship between Orlando and Rogue. They started off on the wrong foot, but they found a connection that both men had sought most of their lives for and never found until the day they meet. Yes, they had difficulties, but Rogue being a bad biker dude does have the not-so-legal connections and illegal-know-how to skirt the legalities and just do away with enemies. As for the drug lord, well, that is for Rogue's (un)benefactor to deal with, leaving Rogue to take Orlando off on his rumbling bike and ride off to a happy life together.

When Dylan, a young wannabe investigator, stumbles into the Mojave Sidewinder’s MC bar, he finds all kinds of trouble—especially in biker Luc ‘Zero’ Villarojas.The Mojave Sidewinders is the largest gay MC club in Southern California. They’re also one-percenters, which makes them alluring to those looking for trouble and a danger to those making it. Luc ‘Zero’ Villarojas has been a brother ever since the club’s prez took him in as a runaway. At thirty-four years of age, he’s content to ride his hog, chase tail and run his tattoo and piercing parlor, Zero to Sixty.Dylan has had to take care of himself since his aunt died when he was still a teen. Even though he’s barely twenty-two years old, the small spitfire has made his way in the world as best as he can and has even started his own would-be investigative agency. He’s proud of himself, even if his agency is on the edge of town in a ramshackle building.Working his first big case involving a missing young man, Dylan barges into Road Rage, the Mojave Sidewinder’s exclusive bar, and starts asking questions. When it looks as though he’s about to get beaten up, a large, muscled biker covered in ink comes to his aid. Dylan’s incredibly attracted to him—even if Zero is pretty scary and Dylan’s still a virgin. But is there something Zero knows about the missing man that he’s hiding? And is Dylan in more danger than he realises?
Dylan was trying hard to be a private investigator and he was actually intelligent enough to connect the dots as they should be connected. His only downfall was his size. Being small is not helping at all and being picked on by biker Grim did wonders to his knees. Him falling face flat at the foot of a mean biker by the name of Zero may have been the best thing that ever happened to him. In like? Ever!
Zero was just minding his business but when a cutie pie lands on his feet, he just could not resist. His protective instincts at the fore, he gets between the cutie and the grim Grim. Why? Well, because he wanted to and it was for the best really. How could he resist not pounding Grim's face?
Dylan zeroed in on Zero the biker and just fell. This was the man he had been wanting all his life to have and having him save him was a gift really. So why not gift him with something he never gave to anyone before?
Zero and Dylan find they are more than compatible and resist he may have tried, but Zero found he should not and could not. Their connection sizzled hot and there was that thing they both could not deny: Dylan wanted and craved Zero's strength.
This was really sexy and sweet in a way if not for the bad assed-ness of Zero and gang. Again, true to this anthology's call, the men skirt the legalities and make do with their hands, feet and guns.
