He patted the motorcycle seat. “Hop on.”“I’m nobody’s bitch. Especially some outlaw arrogant biker I just hired,” she warned. “What makes you so special that you can skip out on work?”He chuckled despite himself. “Between you and me, I think the boss lady is sort of sweet on me.”She stared at the bike seat, not even attempting to make a move.Waving his ignorance flag, Cade hunched over the handlebars. “You want me to say I’m sorry? That I shouldn’t have kissed you yesterday? Not going to happen, Em. I’m not that good of a man.” He smiled. “One ride, and then I might consider kissing you again.”“Clingy much?” she ground out.“Got a rebellious streak, babe.” He slowly slid a glance down her body, knowing his needy feelings to own the heartbreaker biker chick were entirely stupid. But, shit, they were so damn powerful. Risky, even. “When I see something I want, nothing stops me from getting it.”“You’re awfully confident for a mechanic, aren’t you? Let me remind you about something. Mechanics are a dime a dozen, so if you want to hit the road, you’d be doing us both a favor.” She shifted her weight, hip cocked in a prissy stance. “Hell, I’ll even buy your gas if that means you’ll ride off into the sunset. Like right now.”She knew exactly the right buttons to push to piss him off. That kiss yesterday had been anything but forced. Yet if he called her bluff, went all Hulk on her, Em would run. Turn her cute button-shaped nose up at him and haul her sexy ass back inside. It probably made sense to apologize and try to get in her good graces, but Cade had never taken the easy route. And gaining Em Connors’s trust would be no different, since he wasn’t about to burn the man code and turn into some Hallmark greeting card guy. Instead he winked and revved the throttle on his bike. “Princess, I can tell you’re dying to know if I can handle this horsepower between my legs.”
REBEL HEAT-Book 2 in the Dirty Sinner’s series- available April 4, 2016
When DEA special agent Abby Harper's undercover gig is exposed, she's coerced into letting the Dirty Sinners Motorcycle Club president Logan Black become her new partner in crime. The sexy-as-sin biker might have a panty-melting grin and the best damn inked guns in the big ol’ state of Texas, but there's no way she'll buckle under his dimples. She plays by the book, and the badge pinned to her chest is a clear indicator that she'll never warm a criminal's sheets.
Logan knows he and Abby mix about as well as mentos and soda, but when he discovers the feisty redhead tending bar at Throttle is an undercover agent—and friend to someone he respects—he sticks his neck out to protect the gorgeous stunner. Easy enough, right?
Abby’s aware that the way the tatted-up bad boy makes her want to cross the line puts more than just her job at risk. Yet Logan has every intention to prove he’s the man for her. No-strings-attached sex will never satisfy him. He wants Abby. And he wants her for good.

My Rebel Love Review . . .
Hmmmmm, I LOVED the idea of this story with a woman president of a MC, but I ended up loving the idea more than the actual story. I'm such a huge fan of strong heroines so I was hoping that Em Connors was going to fit the bill. She had strong elements but for me I wouldn't say she embodied strong bad ass MC president.
In my head I pictured a strong rough and tough take no prisoners type of president but she still came across soft and the boys of the MC did the dirty work so she didn't want to. I didn't like that because it softened Em too much. The other thing I didn't completely love was she always referred to the MC as her employees where other MC is all about the family and brotherhood which is part of the charm of the MC. I know she didn't want to be president so this gave her a detachment but for me the brotherhood and family as well as the dark bad ass world is what lures me into these MC stories.
Cade Jackson has his demons and burdens but when he's forced to go back undercover he agrees just seeing Em's picture. Not only does he want to know who killed his old partner but he's intrigued by this female MC president. As he meets Em for real he's immediately intrigued but wants to keep the lines separated between duty and personal.
Em's on a mission to have vengeance on her dead fiancé. But to do this she has to go behind the MC's back. Cade isn't sure about Em, but he definitely wants to find out the truth and get to know Em more.
You could feel their chemistry for sure and the suspense was good. At times their relationship escalated too quickly but I did like the two of them together but I think I would have like them even more if they weren't part of the MC. This MC story was more MC lite, but if it was just contemporary with no MC their relationship would have come across differently to me.
There were parts of her that I did like but at times her want, don't want interactions with Cade left me thinking she was more schizophrenic than conflicted. Will I read more from this series? I think so as I was left wanting to know more from Abby and Logan. Was it my favorite MC story? No, but it was cute and had a sweet HEA. Was it super suspenseful? It had elements of suspense and a twist.
3 MC lite thumbs up!
