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
Title: Don’t Say It
Series: Ronacks Motorcycle Club #2
Author: Debra Kayn
Genre: Erotic Contemporary/Motorcycle Club
Release Date: October 18, 2016
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.”
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.”
