Loving Lucas {Book Review}

Title: Loving Lucas {A Lies & Leather Novel}

Author: Violetta Rand

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description

Perfect for fans of Joanna Wylde and Monica Murphy, Violetta Rand's explosive new Lies & Leather series kicks off with a red-hot motorcycle racer who rides hard and plays for keeps.
Twenty-one-year-old Karlie Augustine is a survivor. She's smart and tough, but she's in too deep with a bad boyfriend who isn't above breaking her spirit-or her body. Luckily, help arrives in the form of a leather-clad, motorcycle-riding hunk on the right side of the law. Lucas Lafontaine is pure muscle, a Corpus Christi cop who ignites something primal deep within Karlie. And when he offers her room and board in exchange for housekeeping, she finally starts to feel safe again.

As their arrangement turns deliciously decadent, Lucas gets hooked on Karlie's killer body and fighting spirit. He wants to heal the pain he sees behind her eyes, but to protect her he needs to keep her close, especially now that her psycho ex won't take a hint. Even as Lucas fights his own battle for custody of his young son, he knows that what he's found with Karlie is real-and that he'd do anything to protect the woman he wants to take to the finish line.

My Review:

     Well I should say that Mrs. Rand is a brand new author to me. So I wasn't sure what to expect when reading this book. I just know that the synopsis sounded good. I'm glad now that I got the chance to review this book and stuck with it. 

     I liked Karlie's character. I found her to be sweet, caring, funny and strong. That's after she leaves her douche of an ex. Karlie definitely seems to have a strong head on her shoulders. I also felt for her when she finds out things about herself she didn't know.

     Oh gosh Lucas. Don't get me wrong he was definitely swoon worthy book boyfriend material. He was sweet, caring, sexy and definitely all hot alpha male. But there were times he was a bit overprotective.

      I thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I thought it started out strong. Than kind of trailed off in the middle. Than picked back up at the end. I will say the chemistry between Lucas and Karlie was hot and they were definitely creative.

     I'm giving this book 4 out of 5 stars!!!!
