Persuasion: A Sons of Odin Novel by Violetta Rand

If you love the motorcycle romances of Joanna Wylde and Julie Ann Walker, don’t miss Violetta Rand’s irresistible novel about a sexy-as-sin biker who tempts a good girl to go bad.

Lang Anderson may be the new leader of the Sons of Odin motorcycle club, but his personal life is in shreds. He’s struggling to take care of his three young sisters in the wake of tragedy, while rumors of drug dealing within his ranks jeopardize everything he’s built. The last thing he needs is another distraction—like a bar brawl over a woman—but Lang is a sucker for a damsel in distress. And this one gets him roaring like a finely tuned engine.

High school guidance counselor Lily Gallo is no fender bunny. So why can’t she get Lang off her mind? Lily’s head says the rugged, rough-and-tumble biker who came to her aid is bad news. Her body begs to differ. But when Lang’s troubled kid sister walks into her office, Lily’s determined to help, even if it puts her in the crossfire of a gang war. On a crash course with danger and desire, Lily partners up with Lang to fight for his family—and for love.

I’ve been back and forth on this review since finishing the book. While the characters were built with solid features that brought them clearly into view, and the drama and angst in this story was coming from the two characters themselves not the outside, there was just something missing. Perhaps it was the solidity of Lang – an all too typical alpha biker in his protective, demanding nature and his nod to the ‘biker code’: I wanted more depth from him throughout, a moment that would make his actions and his character make sense. But it could have been Lily’s willingness to be pushed about and taken, if not quite for granted, as soft and always forgiving. She was that, without really making it clear that she needed more. I wanted to feel more of the conflict and difficulties Lang had with caring for his siblings and the difficulties with his sister, which has such promise but seems to be forgotten in the relationship between Lang and Lily. I’ve experienced similar with Ms. Rand’s work – premises that are wonderful but just don’t quite push the edges enough: chances taken (here Lang does not play with the ‘pass-arounds’ –a rarity in this genre) that don’t really build a statement as other behaviors more common to the genre, specifically misogyny, is rampant. Lastly the conclusion. It almost came out of left field without any real hints or conflict in Lang that would have made the scenario even reasonably possible. It just didn’t fit the story that I read. Not a bad read, but just not as edgy or daring as the premise or the genre would suggest. Rand has the ability to ‘go there’, I just want to see it done. A good starter MC romance for those who don’t know the genre and aren’t sure they want to delve in completely. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Exciting and enticing! Persuasion is a great introduction, for Violetta Rand's new Sons of Odin series, ! If you like a story about bad boys, hot bikers, leather jackets, hot and sexy scenes, then you are in for a treat! It tells the story of Lang Anderson, the new leader of the Sons of Odin, a motorcycle club, and Lily Gallo, a high school counselor. Coming from two different backgrounds, their world will collide with force and passion. As soon as Lang and Lily, meet for the first time, sparks flare all over. But he's a biker, the president of a motorcycle club, but so sexy! She is, soon, very intrigued with him, but feels that a criminal, is not the kind of man she can trust. Her mind said “no” but her body “yes”! They meet again, in a different environment, and she soon discovers that he is a different man, underneath his rough exterior. A seduction game began, attraction and passion followed! I love the beautiful chemistry between Lang and Lily! Will she accept the world he lives in? Will she fit in? Will Lang, as her protector, change his life for Lily, the woman, he really loves? Can a beautiful and healthy relation be possible between two persons coming from so different worlds? This story was hot and passionate! It had plenty of suspense, most of all, romance! I really enjoyed reading this book and looking forward to the other upcoming stories. I received an ARC from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you love motorcycle romances', then you need to read Violetta Rand’s sexy-as-sin MC book, Persuasion.

efinitely my favorite book by Violetta Rand so far. We dive into the world of the Sons of Odin MC, which is along with the heroine Lily who is unfamiliar to this world. The rules, terms, and general attitudes are all something that lead to some pretty funny moments between Lily and Lang. She is primp and proper, and Lang can come off as a caveman. Lily has gone through more challenges in her life than you would expect, which draws Lang closer to her. Lang definitely cares a lot about taking care of his sisters, who are in his care after his parents death. It was great to see the softer side of him throughout the book. That really made their love more believable since they both really care for children. I loved that there was a definite twist at the end, that brought them together in an unexpected way. Although I think we will see them in future Sons of Odin books too. There were unexpected moments of humor that I really enjoyed. Another steamy read from Rand, I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.

My first foray into the Motorcycle Club novel explosion. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did get on the Sons of Anarchy bandwagon, so I recognized a lot of the terminology. I really enjoyed it! Lang is HOT! Lily is a good girl, but can't resist sexy, dirty-talking Lang. I'm excited to read the next one! Super sexy read! Lang Anderson was born into, and lives and breathes the Sons of Odin Motorcycle Club. Recent corruption has thrust him into the President position, and he's hell bent to get to the bottom of who is breaking the laws of his club. He's had nothing but turmoil in his life in the last few months. He's struggling trying to raise his 3 little sisters, and doesn't need any more distraction in his life right now. Tell that to Lilliana Gallo who takes his breath away the first time he sees her in a bar. When he has to step in to protect her from a couple of guys, he can't resist inviting her to have a drink with him. She's new to town and can't believe she's attracted to such a bad boy. Lily turns out to be the new high school guidance counselor assigned to help his older sister. Once they are brought back into each other's lives again, they stop fighting the attraction and decide to date. Will Lily be able to live with his tough life and the things he won't be able to tell her about? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **

This is a tough one to review. I actually really enjoyed the romance part of the book. Lang and Lily are such an unlikely pair (school counselor and a MC Prez)but I found their attraction and chemistry worked for me. Loved the way Lang cared for his sisters and the attention and care he gave Lily. What didn't quite seem realistic was the MC part. Not that I have a clue about the inner workings of an MC club but I would assume the Prez needs to be a take no excuses badass. Lang never really seems that way. He's always saying the club and brothers come first but it seems that his sisters really come first in his life. Overall though I did enjoy the book and would recommend it.

## Meh...not so good. 1) Do not like smoker heroes. Also, I didn't like how he justified the "brothers" using the "pass arounds". Chicks who are passed around among the bikers for b*ow jobs and sex, determined by a toss of a coin. He said they are doing them a favor. Not bloody likely. His whole outlook on owning "old ladies" was perposterous. And no way would Child Services give a 3rd generation gang member custody of his small siblings. Can't recommend.
