Fast. That's how I like life, especially by two great joys: bikes and women. I'm committed to exclusively riding one, but not the other.
A sexy-arse freelance photographer who's travelled the world, and doesn't do long walks on the beach of romantic candlelit dinners. She enjoys running with the bulls and food spicy enough to make your hair fall out. If that weren't enough to get me hard, she rides a mean mother of a motorcycle.
I've gotta have a taste of this wildcat.
I don't do fast. Not anymore. I've got my career, my independence, and since I fled Spain to come back home I promised myself that I wouldn't be put second-or third, for that matter-again.
Then I meet pretty boy Spencer.
He's smooth, ossing the most potent pheremones probably known to modern science, and he's making a move on me. One kiss was almost enough for my promise to dissolve.
My head says no, my treacherous body screams yes. I'm gonna make Spencer work for it. Make him fight for the chance to have me, because I know that deep down I'm worth it.
*Strike is book three in the Spark series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but continues on with characters from Spark and Spike.
*Recommended for 18+ as it contains very steamy sex with motocross boys *sigh*.

This is book 3 in the Spark Series It can be read as a standalone, but some of the other characters from book one and two are also in this book. I suggest for full enjoyment that you read all of the books. I gave this book 5 stars. This is April and Spencer's story. April is a very strong woman, who has been through so much hurt and pain in her life, but rather then shrink back and let it take control of her life she pushes forward. She wants something that is real and that will last in her life. And although she is attracted to Spencer she puts him through a lot. Spencer takes it all, why because he wants April, he wants to prove to her that he will do whatever he has to do. April, gives Spencer a chance but-- Spencer has a few secrets of his own and when they come out will they be a deal breaker for April? You get to see all of the characters from the other books in this one too, and you will see where they are at and how they are doing. I love being able to read a series that updates you on the characters that you have grown to love. This is a wonderful series that I highly recommend. I think you will really love it. I so look forward to Jennifer's books.
Strike by Jennifer Ryder My rating: 5 of 5 stars I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review, and having read both Spark and Spike I was more than happy to see what Strike, book 3 in the series would have in store. The book is focused on Jone's the man whore on the MX team. Now I was quite sure that this character would have a hard time changing my opinion of him, as he doesn't really come over as a nice guy to start with in the series, but at the end of book 2 he seemed to be growing up at last. 'Jone's' AKA Spencer Jones, is Aiden's teammate, and he's been doing well this season on the Motocross circuit, and one evening he is sat I a cafe contemplating his lifestyle when he notices a hot young woman sat on her own at a table nearby. After a few hot glances between each other, he goes over to speak to her and introduces himself as Spencer... For once not wanting his MX rep to proceed him. April, a freelance photographer who is an adrenalin junkie, enjoys running with bulls or jumping out of small air crafts for fun captivates him, and the fact that she drinks beer, and drives off on a Bandit, without fawning all over him make him want to know her better. April is not without her issues, but she and Spencer had a connection, so she gives him a chance... It's all going quite well until April finds out who Spencer really is. I am going to leave it there as I don't do spoiler reviews. But all I can say is Ms Ryder does a great job of weaving a romantic tale of two people who are at that point in their lives when they need to make a change, to grab onto that chance of happiness, the way Ms Ryder has peeled back the layers of each character during the story made me grow to like and root for Spencer as he fights to get his girl. I loved April, she was a bit broken, but instead of shrinking into her shell she'd headed out into the world to explore, experience and create herself a flourishing career, but even though she is outwardly is confident her past still gives her those doubts that we all have deep down, so I could relate quite well with her. I have always found Ms Ryder's books to flow well, you get caught up in the story and I really did not want to put the book down, it held my attention throughout. I would also like to say that the dedication also touched me, as it struck a chord with me, as I was told something similar as a young girl, I am and always will be a romantic who believes in a HEA... After all I got mine. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and also catching up with Aiden and Eevie, and I wonder what Ms Ryder will have in store for us in her next book. I can't wait to find out.
