What Worked For Me:
This is the first book I’ve read by L. Wilder, but it won’t be the last. I enjoyed Smokey a great deal, although it was rather tame compared to other books in the MC genre. Smokey is our quiet and strong hero. He’s got his brothers and his bike, and doesn’t seem to need much else. I liked his protectiveness and caring nature, especially in regards to our heroine, MJ. MJ is a sweet and spunky woman who is seriously clumsy. I love heroines like her. These two have a fate that seems to be entwined together as one random meeting at a diner begins their fascination with each other and then culminates when they meet for the second time…. MJ informing Smokey of the passing of his father and discusses his father’s will. Together these two characters work seamlessly until an outside influence intrudes on their relationship. I like their chemistry together which is both smoking hot and sugar sweet. I was heartbroken the way MJ left town and the reason why she left. I can’t spoil it for you but I wanted to jump into my Kindle and beat the crap out of someone! Still, I have to admit, it gave this book some serious emotion and suspense, especially with the plot twist the author surprises you with. Even better, you get to see the depth of love our hero has for the heroine, which is swoon worthy all on it’s own. Overall, this book has a little bit of everything that makes a story good….a well thought out plot, great characters, some intrigue and a love story that will stand the test of time.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, especially to my friends who like MC romances without all the angst that can come in some of them.
Final Star Rating: 4
*sidenote…this is the 5th book in the Satan’s Fury series but you don’t have to read the other books in this series to enjoy Smokey, although I’m definitely going back and reading them because I can’t believe I didn’t know about this author!

Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: October 18, 2016
You can’t fight fate, especially when it brings you a girl like MJ Thompson. She wasn’t just beautiful. No, she was so much more than that. She was smart with a smile full of magic and curves that drove me to distraction. I wanted her, but there was a catch: She was the lawyer handling my father’s will. And as if that wasn’t enough, her dad was a cop.
I should’ve known better than to get mixed up with a girl like her, but I just couldn’t resist. I wanted to feel her body pressed against mine. I wanted to hear her call my name while she was wrapped in my arms, so I ignored my instincts. I made her mine. After one night, she had me, heart and soul. Every ounce of doubt, every second thought, vanished.
Life was good. I had my woman by my side. The club’s new pipeline was moving forward, and I was coming to terms with my past. Then, without warning, it all fell apart. I lost her. She skipped town, leaving only a note and a lot of unanswered questions. I thought I had to let her go, but she had a secret. After discovering what she was hiding, there was nothing I wouldn’t do to have her back in my arms.
Sometimes the road takes you on an unexpected turn, and you end up exactly where you’re meant to be.
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
