Review: Bleed for Her by RB Hilliard (Steele Raiders MC #1)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions.

The Steele Raiders is a motorcycle club based in Austin, Texas, and its members are the stars of the Steele Raiders MC series. When I learned RB Hilliard was venturing into MC romance, I was excited to see how she would tackle the trope, and I'm happy to say that she didn't disappoint! There's no pussyfooting here as Hilliard starts off with Bleed for Her, which is the story of Clay Buckson, the Steele Raiders's sergeant-at-arms, and Reynolds Walker, the woman he wants but never believed he could have. Five years ago, Buck believed he had gotten rid of the main threats against Reyn, and even without her knowing it, he's continued to keep an eye on her. She's moved forward as best she can with her life, with a job that she enjoys, friends she's close to, and even a man who treats her with care and respect. But when she returns to her home to find her almost-fiancé murdered and those same men after her, Buck knows it's time to step in. Their reunion, however, isn't one that's bursting with a whole lot of love. The last thing Reyn wants is to put her life in the hands of the club, but could she learn to entrust him with her heart?

Hold on tight because you're in for one hell of a high octane ride with this bunch. This book served well as a series starter because we not only get a great first story about Buck and Reyn to kick things off, but we get glimpses at the rest of the cast of characters who I'm guessing will be featured as the series moves forward. Reyn was someone who had been to hell, but she fought to come back from it and for that, she certainly deserves kudos. I admit that it took a bit longer for me to warm up to her because of how she was with Buck when they had crossed paths again five years after, although I do understand why she was wary and I get that she may not have known what it was Buck had done for her back then. Buck and his brothers from the club were all standouts, and I can only hope that the rest of the guys will be as notable a main character as Buck when they get their turn. There were a couple of heartbreaking moments in the book as well as some action-filled and suspenseful ones. The only reason this doesn't get five stars is that I felt as if I was dropped in the middle of an ongoing story at the beginning of the book, so it was as if I'd missed something. Otherwise, Bleed for You was still an intriguing four-starred read. ♥
