Love an over-the-top possessive dirty-talking book boyfriend who is an alpha male biker without being an alpha-hole? You need to meet Deacon.
Contains: smokin’ hot steamy scenes, romance, drunk texting, erotic spankings, a battery-operated boyfriend, dirty-talking, shoe shot-put, celebrity and puppet impersonations, a soft drink war, pudding shooters, laughs, tears, a bit of darkness.
Oh… and an HEA.
Deacon is a beautiful biker who sets eyes on his girl and decides he’s going to go to any lengths to:
-make her his and only his.
-keep her safe amid some very amped circumstances with his MC and a rival club.
-give her a wild ride on the way toward happily ever after.
Detour is the first book in a set of standalone but linked love stories about the Dominion Brotherhood MC.
He’s 28, tall, dark, gorgeous, and 100% alpha male. In the relationship department, things either go one way or the other. He either shows them a good time and moves on, never going back for seconds, or he stakes a claim and things get serious REAL fast. It’s been a long while since he’s been motivated to claim anyone. Deacon has what some might classify a problem with possessiveness and jealousy. But he’s got good reasons for this. And when he does stake his claim, he means it. And he allows no one to mess with that.
Ella, 23, feels like the Marilyn Munster of her eclectic household. Despite her crazy hippie parents and rambunctious little brother, her life is boring and humdrum. And her love life is so far off the mark that she considers herself in a serious relationship with her battery-operated boyfriend. She’s having trouble shaking off an ex that won’t go away and fending off her partying friends who continually hassle her to either party with them or be their designated driver.
But things are about to get real for Ella. Real fast.
Very soon after she notices the new Beautiful Biker in town she finds herself in a real pickle. In fact, Ella keeps finding herself in trouble. And Deacon, whose MC has just opened a chapter, biker bar, and garage in Ella’s town, (much to the chagrin of an existing rival MC), notices Ella, too. Deacon keeps swooping in to save Ella’s bacon from a variety of tight spots.
And because of that, it draws even further attention to her. Someone or several someones want revenge against Deacon and his MC and don’t mind using a biker’s woman to make their point.
Ella has been warned away from Deacon. And she worries that her heart will go SPLAT if she lets the beautiful biker get too close.
But it’s too late. Ella has no choice because Deacon is determined to get right in her space.
This book contains a hot alpha book boyfriend, steamy hot scenes, some laughs, and plenty of biker romance action. And because it comes from the brain of DD Prince, it has a little bit of darkness, too.
Standalone, no cliffhanger.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So Detour is the first book in D.D. Prince’s Beautiful Biker series and let tell you its one doozy of a read.
It tells the story of Ella and Deacon and almost instantly upon starting this I was lost in the fantastic world that has born from this author’s fabulous imagination.
So in Detour, we are introduced to Ella whos quietly living her life, a bit of a round peg in a square hole with her very diverse and colourful family.
And then Deacon whos new in town.
He and his family, while also owning the new biker bar and varies other businesses in town, are all members of the Dominion Brotherhood MC and they are here opening a new charter in town.
When Ella spots Deacon in the queue at her local garage shes quite smitten with her beautiful biker.
And the biker of her dreams already has Ella lined up in his crosshairs.
So Detour itself is very insta-love, which usually is not my thing.
Here it worked, maybe because there is still enough internal angst and action to keep this interesting and moving along.
So. this is written from Ella’s POV which also worked and I didn’t feel that this was a detriment to this story at all.
Both the main characters here are extremely likeable, I loved Ella’s dedication to her family and Deacons smouldering intensity was also a charm.
And man Deacon was a hottie with a capital H.
In my opinion, There’s something extremely appealing about a man knowing straight away what he wants and going after it with single-minded dedication.
And Deacon is one such male and he knows exactly what he wants, Ella.
“You’re in this with me? You’re in this there are no limits to what I do for you. A million chances if your heart is in the right place. You fuck up, I forgive you a million times if I need to. But you never ever cheat on me and don’t lie to me. I’ll never cheat. I’ll give you all the truth you want. Never hurt you. I will protect you. It’ll be unconditional as long as you’re only mine and have a mind to making me happy and not trying to make me be someone I’m not. I will fall deep for you and give you everything I can give you; I know I will. I’ve already started falling, Kitten.”
I’m telling you right now, I am fucking done. You’re it. You’re the one. No way I let anyone hurt you. Ever. I don’t want to wake up without you beside me. Safe, in danger, either way. You get me?”
Makes my heart melt, Deacon is such a babe of intensity and when he calls Ella his Kitten well let’s just say I’m an absolute gonna.
So I found Detour to be the whole package, it has it all, just the right balance of romance, angst and hot criminal bad boy antics to keep you glued.
What I also loved about this is the fabulous supporting cast you also get thrown in for free.
Every individual portrayed here is so well rounded and its quite apparent how much work has gone into there creation, they’re not just there for background scenery.
Each and every one seems so alive and vital, quite a feat in a fictional setting.
As such, I found myself equally invested in their futures.
So its safe to say Detour was a hit for me. and I can not recommend this enough.
This is the start of a fabulous new series.
D.D. prince has definitely become an auto-buy author for me.
I have loved each and every one of her varied books.
And Just a heads up that Detour is currently free with a KU subscription.
So Enjoy, I know I did.
