Riding Irish

Sinners & Saints Book 1

Avery Dullahan’s life has always been complicated. She is trying to get her life in order and keep it away from her older brothers who are in a motorcycle gang. However, her brothers keep drawing her into their dangerous game. Avery seems ready to put her brothers into her past and move forward. But is still drawn into their games.

Kane O’Hanlon is an Olympic gold medalist swimmer. He lived for the sport for several years until he walked away and opened his PRO shop. He works a rescue and recovery business. Kane still battles his demons from his past. Demons that are connected to Avery. He meets up with her again. He has changed and now embraces himself and seems to get over many of his demons.

The connection between Avery and Kane is intense. The sex scenes are blistering. I enjoyed seeing how Kane dominated Avery without a lot of stuff and toys. While I don’t like to read about breath play the author incorporated it in a way that put a very beautiful spin on something that could be very dangerous if done wrong. In addition, it incorporated in the overall story line the breathing classes that Kane teaches at his shop.

Riding Irish is the first book in the Sinners & Saints series by Sara Brookes. This book is very well written with a believable plot. I loved that the story was not rushed. The main and the secondary characters are fascinating and engaging. The ending of the story was a bit predictable but the ride there was truly interesting.

Overall, this was a great story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Mayhem is a way of life for Avery. The last thing she needs is a complication like Kane. The medal-winning swimmer who comes to her rescue is the ultimate golden boy. Everything this woman from the wrong side of the tracks shouldn't want and everything she can't stop thinking about. But emotion--and vulnerability--are liabilities she can't afford.

Kane can't understand why he experiences such dark, forbidden and kinky desires when he is around Avery. But her touch sparks a hunger deep inside him, and unleashes an erotic discovery where pain becomes pleasure. Their uninhibited passion reveals Kane's dominant nature.

As Avery submits to Kane, exploring boundaries and pushing limits, she discovers a life she never expected. The unlikely pair forge a bond so tight, their unyielding trust gives way to a love like no other. But Avery's brothers--members of Oahu's most notorious motorcycle club--have other plans. Now Avery is forced to make a decision where her loyalty resides--with her family or with a lover who brings peace to the chaos surrounding her.
