Review: Rider by L. Wilder (Satan's Fury MC: Memphis #7)


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

My introduction to L. Wilder's writing was by way of her Satan's Fury MC series a few years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I still need to work through her Devil Chasers MC series, but that'll have to wait because I'm totally obsessed with her Satan's Fury MC: Memphis books, a spin-off of the original Satan's Fury MC collection. While the two series can be read independently of each other, I'm going to go ahead and recommend that the books in this spin-off series be read in order. Trust me, you're going to be happier doing so and you'll have a better understanding of how the Memphis Chapter of Satan's Fury works and why their brotherhood is truly about family.

We're seven books into the Satan's Fury MC: Memphis series, and Rider is the story of Caleb Hughes, the superstar quarterback of his high school who had the brightest of futures ahead of him before a freak accident on his family's cotton farm changed the trajectory of his life. Years later, he's become "Rider" and has gone from prospect to patched member of Satan's Fury, a motorcycle club that welcomed him and made him feel like family--like he was worthy of a second chance to get his life in order. Working at the club's garage is part of his routine, one that's  shaken up with the arrival of their newest employee--his childhood close friend and the girl he had crushed on in high school: Darcy Harrington, who's about to go on the ride of her life with Caleb and the club that is Satan's Fury.

I loved how the prologue gives you just enough of Caleb's history to make you curious about what may have happened to cause him to go from high school athlete to cut-wearing biker. There isn't a whole lot of time wasted on flashbacks and the like, but I didn't find myself wondering if there was any information I was missing other than not having any idea how many years had passed between the high school Caleb we meet in the prologue and the adult Rider in the first chapter. Other than that, I liked the direction of the story and the amount of action and suspense that Satan's Fury found itself dragged into because of a vendetta against one of the ol' ladies and the romance blossoming between Caleb and Darcy. Kudos to Darcy for being such a strong woman, especially when she volunteered to do what she did. I absolutely loved this particular twosome together. I'm giving Rider five stars. ♥
