Book review - Riding Steele by Opal Carew 5/5 stars

Riding Steele by Opal Carew
M/F erotic romance
5/5 stars

Riding Steele is a super-hot, super-exciting novel that was originally released as a six part series.  Now the series has been updated and combined into this novel, which is released on March 17 2015.  Riding Steele is book three in the Ready to Ride series, but can be read as a standalone with no confusion at all.  This is the first book I've read by Opal Carew and to be honest I was expecting a erotic romance with not alot of substance - but boy was I wrong!  Yes this book is erotic (and I mean seriously erotic) but it is a whole lot more besides.  It has a strong storyline about bad boy bikers with soft hearts, who kidnap a woman to save her from her abusive boyfriend.  The ensuing drama is a roller-coaster ride that will keep you hooked until the end.

Being kidnapped by bikers is a harrowing experience, but for some reason, Laurie doesn’t feel as terrified as she should.  The leader’s steely eyes soften when he looks at her, and the others in his gang clearly know she’s hands off.  But does that include Steele's hands?  Her brain resists him, but her body insists she wants those big hands all over her.
Steele doesn’t know how he wound up in this mess—with a kidnapped woman on his hands and the police hot on their trail.  Now he and Laurie are in hiding at an isolated cabin, and Steele has to figure out how to extricate himself...and steer clear of his accidental captive who’s making him think all kinds of dangerous thoughts…

Steele and Laurie are both fantastic, well written characters.  I completely fell in love with Steele (and all of his biker gang).  They are tough, rough, tattooed bikers but they are caring, protective and sexy as hell.  They are very close and share everything - and I mean everything!  I will warn you that this book includes scenes of sex with multiple partners, so if you aren't comfortable with this then this book is probably not for you.  If like me you don't mind reading about smoking hot bikers enjoying and pleasuring the women in their lives together, then you are in for a fantastic ride.

Laurie is planning on ending her relationship with her abusive boyfriend, but things don't go to plan.  When she is in danger a member of Steele's MC gang rescues Laurie by kidnapping her.  Laurie is understandably frightened and frequently tries to escape from the gang of bikers.  Despite her harrowing treatment by her now ex boyfriend, she remains strong throughout her ordeal.  As her relationship with Steele deepens the sparks really fly.  The chemistry between them is amazing and the resulting scenes are steamy.

There is alot of suspense and danger in this book which creates a book that you can't put down.  I don't want to give anything away about the storyline, so I won't say anymore, except that I one hundred percent recommend this book.  Opal Carew has crafted a compelling story which was a pleasure to read.  I will definitely be looking at other books in the series as I loved all of the bikers in Steele's gang and really want to find out more about them.  Riding Steele definitely deserves five out of five stars.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
