ARC Review for "Sweet Perdition" by Cynthia Rayne

Sweet Perdition (Four Horsemen #1)Sweet Perdition by Cynthia Rayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Librarian Elizabeth Williams is drinking her cares away at Perdition, a notorious biker bar in her hometown of Hell, TX. She meets Ryker, a member of the Four Horsemen MC and they start a fun, sexual fling. Ryker finds himself falling for Elizabeth, but an outlaw has no business with a “good girl”. Hell, he’s not even sure he’d be worthy of one. Meanwhile, Elizabeth is being stalked by her ex and Carl’s behavior is becoming more and more erratic. Can Ryker protect Elizabeth without losing his heart?
My Review: 4 and half stars - wish it was a little longer.

ARC received from the author for an honest review.

Very good start to a new MC series. The book begins with Ryker noticing Elizabeth, who is sitting at the bar that his MC the Four Horsemen own. She’s wearing an ugly pink dress, he takes her sad face as an opportunity to get into her pants. He starts to talk to her in his charming biker way. He instantly starts to refer to her as Pinky, even after he learns her name. That was really cute and he uses it affectionately throughout the book.
Right off I get a very alpha vibe from Ryker so I immediately fell in love with him. Elizabeth tries to not be attracted to him, but how can she help it. Ryker is a hot biker and all, simply irresistible.
I like the way the story plays out, Ryker takes Elizabeth home and she thinks its a one night stand but Ryker has other ideas. He wants to keep her in is bed for much longer than one night. He doesn’t know why, but he refuses to let her go. Elizabeth’s ex who married her best friend suddenly starts calling her acting creepy. Ryker is going to protect her at all costs. But he claims her, but yet refuses to admit he wants to commit. I liked Elizabeth from the start, she was hurt, but she pulled herself back up and moved on. And when she needed to be tough with Ryker she is and when she needed to defend herself she did. The background characters were well established as well. Shepard, the MC VP and Cowboy were intriguing. Ryker’s mom Eddie was a trip, dishing out advice to Ryker and Elizabeth.
The sex was hot hot hot, Ryker is panty dropping gorgeous.
There was an excerpt from the next booking Hot in Hades which is Cowboy’s book , I am already all over that one. The excerpt had me wanting more, more, more. I can’t wait to continue this series.
