Motorcycles & Thanksgiving Dinners

So I Just finished reading 'She Rides' by Elle Laudan. My signed copy I won off of goodreads! I had never read this genre before but it was pretty good after all, nice to take a break from YA however I am excited about the books I have coming up next!

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians celebrating today! Hope you get stuffed full of food and get to spend lots of time with your families!

Goodreads Summary:
Missy heads out on her vintage motorcycle for what proves to be a ride of a lifetime. Every new road brings with it new friends, new experiences and even a sexy romp with a tattoo artist.
It's summers' end when Missy rides into the small town of Waverly for Bike Week, and  sets sight on the most beautiful man she's ever seen on two wheels. Tommy marks the beginning of many hot, steamy nights. Is he Missy's, 'happy ever after', or is there a twist around the next bend in the road, nobody saw coming?

In compliance with FTC guidelines, I disclose that I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads!!!

This is the first book in this genre that I have read. And I must say I was impressed! When I found out that I had a won a copy of an 'erotic suspense' novel I giggled and rolled my eyes, not really knowing what to suspect. The cover of this book, I didn't like so much. It put me off reading it for a while but luckily I went for it anyway.

I immediately loved Missy's desire for adventure. That characteristic alone made this read enjoyable. I loved how in the first half of the book, Missy is a young naive reckless rider, and by the end shes grown into a strong women who learns from her mistakes and takes control of her life again. Its a total coming-of-age type of erotic suspense :)

This book was written well and I could clearly picture the bad-ass bikers and their hangouts in my mind, And loved how we got to learn what they were really like. This book was such a fun read with so many fast twists that kept me turning the page to find out what happened. Id read Laudan again any day.. and she's Canadian to boot!

Happy Reading/Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving, another cool holiday we don't do in Australia. Sigh. I love winning books but for some reason I tend to leave them until I've finished other books as well. This one sounds really good. I've never read a book about bikers before. Interesting. Will look it up!
