Review – Don’t Say It by Debra Kayn

tour-titles-5

What Worked For Me:

I very much enjoyed Don’t Say It.  This is the second book in the Ronacks Motorcycle Club Series and while this book could be read without reading the first book, I still recommend it to get the most out of the reading experience.  This is the story of broody, quiet Swiss and his unexpected lady love Gia.  I really liked this couple, although I will admit to feeling a little perplexed about his feelings towards her.  Our hero likes his life simple and without complication or relationships.  He is very stoic and it was hard to get past his lack of emotion.  When he finally does admit to having feelings for Gia, he becomes an extremely sexy man.  There is nothing sexier than a man who knows what he wants and when he realizes that Gia is what he has been looking for his entire life, and that made me fall in love with him.  I like that, even when he wasn’t acknowledging the way she made him feel, he still protected her and tried to take care of her in his own way.  Gia is sweet and quirky.  Her feelings and emotions are on display from the beginning and that endeared her to me immediately.  I felt like there were no games being played by her.  She was scared and she latched on to the one person who made her feel safest.  She charmed me from the very beginning but even more so when puzzling out the mystery that is Swiss.  She doesn’t fear him and that makes her curious and very entertaining.  Together, this couple works as she balances him out and he brings her peace.  The book was gritty and raw and moved at a fairly brisk pace. There was an added plot twist to this story that I thought was amazing and well delivered and it was a surprise I didn’t even see coming.  Overall, Don’t Say It kept me engaged from the beginning until the very end.  This is a series that I like and I can’t wait to read the next book.

What Didn’t Work For Me:

Swiss was almost too detached for most of the book. He spent alot much time wanting the heroine out of his life and while this angst works, he felt this way for majority of the book so and when he finally admits he feels something more than just sex for the heroine, it felt off and rushed.  Also, this plot had great potential but there were a few holes that are still puzzling me.  I don’t want to give anything away but after reading this book I had unanswered questions and while this is no problem for many readers, I’m a reader who likes all my questions answered and tied up with a bow.  Overall, these two issues are minor as they didn’t take away from my enjoyment of a well written book.

Would I Recommend This Book:  Absolutely.  Especially if you like bad boys who hide their feelings behind gruff exteriors, motorcycle romances, gritty suspense, and second chances at love.

Final Star Rating: 4.5

tour-titles-3

The woman’s shelter gave Gia two options. A house in the middle of Wyoming or share a duplex in Montana with a biker.

From the first day of her arrival to Haugan, Gia pushes herself into Swiss’s routine. Then, danger moves her into his side of the duplex. The stoic biker with few words and more mystery than her body can handle pulls her under his protection with a profound commitment to keeping her safe from the men trying to kill her. But, close encounters and long nights fail to protect her heart, and she falls in love with Swiss. And, that’s the one stipulation guaranteed to push Swiss away from her.

Swiss’s ex-Army skills benefit Ronacks Motorcycle Club and the patch on his vest gives him the freedom to live without responsibilities. Responsibilities that nearly killed him in the past. He thrives off solitude until his isolated existence gets interrupted when a sexy lady moves into the duplex and his gut tells him something isn’t right.

He continued gazing at you and after a few seconds where she believed she’d crumble in her chair at the hypnotic pull from across the table, he said, “You and your dress, and the way you’re blushing right this second, has me thinking I’m going to kiss you.”

She caught herself panting and closed her mouth.

“Not here.” He straightened and looked around the room and mumbled, “Later.”

“Later?” She ducked her chin. Oh God, she’d said that out loud.

He chuckled low. “Do you need a specific time?”

She looked through lowered lashes. “That might help because I can’t even think right now with you blurting out everything I’m thinking and looking at me that way and me being scared and not knowing what is going on with everything outside of us…and you. You scare me, Swiss.”

He ran his thumb and index finger down the outside lines of his goatee. “All you have to do is tell me no.”

“No,” she blurted. “I mean yes. I want you to kiss me.”

The corner of his mouth lifted. Gia sighed in impatience.

“I don’t know what I’m doing. You’re like nobody I’ve ever known.” She glanced around making sure they hadn’t grabbed anyone else’s attention. “I’m also feeling guilty.”

“About?”

She sagged in her chair. “I came here with the intent to use you for protection like some big warning sign to keep the bad men away and instead…”

“Instead, you want me,” he said, shrugging. “It is what it is, sweetheart.”

She burst out laughing and shut off her nervous amusement instantly, mortified that she’d forgotten about everyone else in the bar and nodded. “Yes, I guess that’s what I’m saying.”

Blurb

Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?

Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.

Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.

She’s always been his best friend.

He’s always been hers.

She’s in love with him.

He’s … not in love with her.

He’s … marrying someone else.

He’s … hiding something.

He’s … well—it’s complicated.

 

Excerpt:

Harley bangs on the door. “Rose, what’s the hold up?”

“Shut up, ass face,” I say, scowling in his direction.

“You haven’t even put it on yet, have you?” He chuckles, leaning against the frosted glass panel. “I’m giving you five seconds, babe.”

I know he isn’t kidding with this, either, so I let the towel fall to the floor and I yank on the bikini. I’m just snapping the bottoms into place when he bangs again.

“Time’s up.”

“I can’t wear this,” I say as he opens the door. My body is turned toward him, but only because half of my ass is hanging out of the cheeky-cut swimwear. Harley doesn’t need me to turn around in order to see how much skin they expose. The huge mirror over the vanity is doing a fine job of showing it to him. He takes a slow sip from the paper coffee cup in his hand.

“Well?” I demand, snatching the cup from his grasp and gulping down a huge mouthful. It burns my tongue and throat and brings tears to my eyes that are in no way related to the fact that he hasn’t said anything yet.

“You wanna know what I think?” He takes a step toward me and reflexively I take one back, only I have nowhere to go because my ass hits the bathroom vanity, and I swallow hard and nod. Harley’s arm snakes around my waist, his fingers sliding down to the fabric of my bikini bottoms and across my exposed flesh. My body thrums. I hold my breath and he leans in close to whisper in my ear, “I think it’s lucky you’re not my wife, because you’d be walking with a limp for the rest of our honeymoon.”

As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife.

The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love.

Excerpt:
SAYLOR
Some might call me a lonely, little rich girl with first world problems. I disagree with that descriptor, well, the lonely part, anyway.
My heart pinches, just like it always does when it comes to the man who has no use for me.
Anywho, you’d think I’d be miserable around families who love one another, especially ones as big as my best friend, Evangeline’s. I think she has eleventy billion relatives attending her wedding today.
Or fifty.
Whatever.
It’s a huge family.
The groom, Hunter—his is no different on his mother’s side. I think they brought all of Tijuana with them. Except, we’re all supposed to travel to Mexico for a second reception tomorrow.
So you’d totally think I would hate weddings joining said families together.
But you’d be wrong. I’m a total sucker, romantic… or masochist. Take your pick.
In any case, I’m overjoyed for Eva. She deserves someone like Hunter mooning over her, sexing her up all the time, and being completely, utterly in love with her.
“Smile wider, please,” the photographer orders and I pull my lips back from my teeth like a beaver about to get her wood on.
“Not that wide,” he mutters.
With a little sigh, I slump and almost dump my boobs out of the top of my dress. Tugging the material up, I ask, “Better?”
“No,” the groomsman beside me whispers in my ear and I stiffen. Here come the comments about my breasts. “I like the one before he made us look like deranged antelopes.”
Delighted at his comparison, I glance up at him. “You have experience with them?”
He smiles, making my stomach flip, just like he’s done since I first laid eyes on him while walking down the aisle. “I was joking.”
“I wasn’t. The animal shelter needs to be prepared for anything.”
“People around here bring antelopes back from Africa a lot?”
I’m not sure if he’s teasing me, so I just go with it. “No, but they do adopt animals that they don’t keep longer than two weeks, and then we’re responsible for them.”
“Hey, Chatty Cathies. We’re trying to take a wedding picture here,” a guy calls out.
“Shut it, Rollins,” the groomsman growls, then turns his sexy blue eyes on me again. “Ignore him. You talk for as long as you want.”
“That could be a really long time,” I admit. “I live by myself and Empress Padme is exceptionally good at the quiet game.”
His eyes widen a little. “Really?”
The sound of a camera whirring as it takes our pictures doesn’t stop me from looking at him. Something that is a feat in of itself since I’m a teensy bit vain when it comes to how I look in photographs.
“I’m Saylor by the way.”
“Hayden.”
“You’re Anakin.” I practically breathe his name. Wincing, I attempt to correct myself. “I meant that you have the same name as the guy who played him and Darth Vader.”
“My acting chops are far, far worse.”
“Doubtful.” Only a smidgen of guilt pokes me in the gut for being so disloyal. “Have you seen the latest one?”
Before Hayden can answer, Hunter grabs his arm, giving me a smile and Hayden a pointed look. “Mind if I borrow him?”
“It’s your wedding.”
I watch as the two of them walk away, Hunter talking intently to Hayden.
Evangeline, looking radiant in her wedding gown, joins in on the picture, which is now only of bridesmaids and flower girls.
There are twenty-five of us.
Or three.
Whatever.
Eva has a lot of nieces, a sister, and four sisters-in-law. They’re all beautiful, happily married—the sisters, not the nieces—, and kind… I want to hate them, but I can’t. They’re undeserving of that kind of emotion from me.
Plus, they did my makeup and hair—the nieces, not the sisters. The oldest one, all of twelve, wielded an eyeliner pencil better than Rey with a light saber.
“Was Hayden bothering you,” Evangeline asks as we take a break from smiling.
I like him bothering me. “We were just talking.”
Her blue eyes flicker over me. “He didn’t want to just talk.”

Having escaped an abusive marriage, Evangeline simply wants to start over in the small, quiet town of Forrestville. She’s also avoiding all contact with the opposite sex, because she just can’t trust her instincts when it comes to men—not even with the sinfully sexy cop next door. So why can’t she stop thinking about him? Hunter has darkness in his soul, and yet no one ever made her feel so safe. For all her best laid plans, Evangeline didn’t count on choices this hard—or temptation this hot.

AboutTheAuthor

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimedCimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
