This book is a good start to the Trojans MC Series from Sam Crescent. It was an easy read for me. This was my kind of book! I enjoy this type of gritty romance, the kind with a bad ass alpha male and plenty of dirty sex scenes. Duke was a sexy bad ass biker Prez determined to claim his woman. Holly grew up in the Trojans MC. She wanted Duke, but she knew the score and wanted no part of it. She'd already been burned once and had kept her distance ever since. Her resistance didn't last long once Duke got tired of waiting and decided to make his move. I liked how easily she accepted Duke (Hey, It was her dream come true). The plot was exciting. We saw some new things (ie: the claiming part). Surprisingly, I liked that part. The conflict was very exciting, there was some danger and a jealous ex thrown into the mix. The suspense is always one of the best parts in a Sam Crescent book. Along with the lusty sex scenes. Did I mention that they were scorching hot? As usual, I was not disappointed in that department. I also liked how she set up the new series by introducing some interesting characters for future stories. I can't wait for Pike and Mary! For the record, I have to mention that I found a few flaws in the writing. While it was a fantastic story with a plot that reaches out and grabs you...it definitely needed some extra editing. Poor sentence structure and bad grammar pulled my attention away from the story just a little bit. I was thrilled with the new characters that I met, but I also noticed some of the same situations, along with some of the same descriptions. While I usually enjoy this type of trope, this time I felt that it needed changing up a bit. Still, I have to admit that Sam Crescent knows how to write an awesome down and dirty MC romance book. The Best! I think this is going to be a great series with an entirely different outlook. It needs some work, but I like the new characters who do things their own way. Heh...I'm already hooked!
Trojans MC, 1
Duke has wanted Holly for a long time but she was too young, too innocent, and he was married. Now, she’s older and he has waited long enough. She is going to be his.
Holly grew up in the MC life. Her father was once president of the Trojans MC before he handed the gavel over to Duke. She refuses to become part of the life like her mother has. Being an old lady is the last thing she wants to become.
He has bided his time and now he will not let her go. Holly is his to control, to fuck, to love. He’ll do everything in his power to claim his woman but what will happen when Holly finds out the truth about the club?
When his ex-wife tries to hurt her, Duke will have to make a choice. Can he kill the mother of his child or will he protect the woman who owns his heart?
Be Warned: anal play, public exhibition, spanking
In answer, Duke took possession of her lips, deepening the kiss. He stepped between her spread thighs, pressing his palm against her crotch. She gasped, pulling back from him. Had he gone too far? Duke didn’t care. He’d taken his time, given her a chance to be ready. If Pike knew what was going on inside his head, Holly had to be aware.
There was a knock on the door interrupting their moment. Duke had been about to talk to Holly, but instead he looked over his shoulder toward the sound. “What?” His cock was rock hard, pressing against his zipper.
“Sorry to bother you, Duke. Matthew is looking for you,” Pike said.
That was all it took for Holly to start pushing him away, getting firmer with each shove. “Get off me,” she said, whispering out the words through gritted teeth. Duke growled. He was annoyed at being interrupted. Stepping back, he watched her slide off the table glaring at him. She looked totally adorable when she was angry. “Go and find Matthew. This was a complete mistake.”
Banding an arm around her waist, he slid down to grip her ass hard. “Baby, the only mistake that happened right now is the fact I had to fucking stop.”
She pressed her palms against his chest to push him away. Duke was bigger and stronger than she was. “Keep trying, baby. You’re not going to be the one in control. I am.”
“Get your hands off me, Duke.”
He glared at her. “Don’t fucking think you can pretend you didn’t want me, Holly. Your nipples are rock hard, and I bet your pussy is soaking wet, begging for my cock.”
“No, I’m fucking honest. Tell me you’re not turned on.” When she went to open her mouth, he put his own on hers, silencing her. “You better be prepared to prove a dry cunt, Holly,” he said, breaking from the kiss.
She stayed silent as he waited for her to dispute his claim.
He took hold of her hand, pressing her palm against his cock. “This, Holly, it isn’t over. Don’t leave the clubhouse. We’re going to have a talk.” Duke took a step away from her, heading toward the door.
“Nothing is going on between us. One kiss means nothing.”
Spinning back around, he stalked toward her. In three easy strides he stood in front of her. He didn’t give her a chance to escape. Turning her in his arms so her back was to his front, he slid his hands inside the jeans she wore. He moved past the elastic of her jeans, sinking his fingers through her creamy slit. Duke groaned as she was bare to the touch. He’d not been expecting his woman to be completely bare, maybe a small patch of curls but not bare. “I’m going to be licking this beautiful little cunt, Holly.” He rubbed his finger around her slick clit before diving down to sink his fingers inside her sweet little pussy. “Fuck, baby, you’re wetter than even I imagined.” Duke groaned as he slid two fingers inside her with ease. She cried out, thrusting onto his fingers. “You can try and pretend all you want, Holly. I know the truth, and this is not the end.”
I loved this book! Couldn't put it down. I liked the characters and the choices that they were able to achieve, even though they were hard decisions. Not for the faint of heart. Enjoy!
Good start to a new MC series and I like that it's griddy and raw but not full of violence and cheating which seems to be the trend. Love the characters and cannot wait for Mary and Pike's story.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! How does Sam Crescent get better & better? She has a great writing style that keeps you glued to her stories. I hope Pike & Mary get a book next. DUKE & Holly 's story was sweet. Not as much club life this time, it was a lot more personal . I love getting into their heads to see their thoughts ans see how things come together. I hope the next book comes out soon. Great read.
I thought this was fantastic!!!!! Duke knew holly was his soul mate from the beginning. They were perfect together. Hot, sexy, dominant biker god.... LOVED THIS!!!!! Can not wait for more (pike and Mary?)
A good mc read with a full figure heroine. There was not a lot of drama going on in this book which I enjoyed. Don't get me wrong I love a gritty mc, but it's nice to slow down on drama sometimes. We still get a smoking hot alpha biker,A crazy ex, club business, and some steamy scenes. It was a very enjoyable read.
Loved it! Another great job by Sam. She knows how to write a great MC book. Holly 's dad was club President of the Trojan MC and stepped down putting Duke in charge. Holly has secretly had a crush on Duke for years and Duke had always wanted Holly, but she was too young. He decides it's time to get what he's always wanted. Love her innocence and understanding of the club life, even though she thought she always wanted out. Loved Duke's alpha possessive control for Holly. The ex-wife causes some problems but not for long. The sex was hot and he is in control (Sam does this the best in her books). Can't wait for another book, bring on Pike and Mary's story.
Book 1 in the Trojans MC series. What a great start to a series. Duke and Holly are such great characters. All of the good people in the club make you want to know more about them, and all the horrible people associated with the club just make you want to hate them. Duke knows how to protect the ones he loves, and with a strong club behind him, god help anyone who steps out of line!
Another great MC series from Sam Crescent. I really enjoyed getting to know Duke and Holly. These two may have an age difference, but they have liked each other for awhile. Holly is a strong person and doesn't back down easily. Duke is such a great guy and a good leader. This was a really good story and I am looking forward to reading about Pike and Mary.
Freaking awesome start to a series and so can't wait for book 2!
Just loved this book, I can't wait for next book in series. I love reading Sam Crescent books, This new MC series is going to be great.
Short and sweet! Love the May/December romances Sam writes. She makes them flow easily and always gives me the ultimate alpha male role lust after!
What an awesome start to a new series. I love the fact that another wonderful MC group is mentioned so maybe stories will connect with each of them in further books. Love it and now I want Pike' s story!!!
Loved it! Storyline was well written, entertaining, action packed and so dang hot! I could not put down and at times was on the edge of my .A roller coaster bundle of emotions. Love these sexy badass bikers & their will to protect their women, club .Would recommend this to everyone to read
The only way to start this review is to say once again Simply Fantastic. Sam has given us anothe MC club to fall in love with. The Trojans and Duke will make you read this book in one sitting. I lived the passion in Duke the love he has for Holly is heartwarming for a biker and the love he has for his son is fantastic. Duke shows us what loyalty is all about when it comes to the two of them and you can't help but fall in love with this Alpha Male. This is the start of another great series. If you love MC books with some romance and a lot of everything else this is the one for you
OMG, I couldn't put it down, it felt like I had just started reading it and it was over. Definitely a good start to a new series loved the characters, could totally relate to some of the issues that happenened in the book. You meet a hot sexy prez Duke Bane for the Trojans who is hardcore and man that just grabs your attention from the start. Gotta love a man that treats his woman right and listens to her fears and takes his time with her. Holly is just one of those characters that you just love and want to watch how she grows. Holly has some issues with the club even though she was born into it, but damn girl you put your big panties on and worked through it. I loved the claiming part in the book, I have not read anything like that in any other MC books I have read and thoroughly enough how different it was and I must say Hot hot hot. You did it again Sam you have provided another book that I fell in love with and will recommend and re-read anytime. I give you 4.5 stars as I was a little disappointed that it wasn't longer but other than that loved it and will read anything you write.
That was a good start into a new series. I just devoured this book. One second I started first chapter and the next thing I know I'm at epilogue. Damn, that wasn't enough for me. I need more. Much more with all the things happening here. And not only with our H&H, but with other characters too. Curiousity is just killing me. I need next book like yesterday! Damn, Sam knows how to hook you in. Meet our hot, hardcore Prez of the Trojans, Duke Bane. Damn, the man grabbed my heart from the begining. You just can't help but love and adore him. The way he was with Holly... His respect, loyalty, love towards her. That was just HOT. And sweet. The only way a biker can sweeten you. And Holly is one of those H you could never be annoyed with. She's just perfect. Perfect for a man like Duke. I don't say that she didn't have her own issues with the club, even though she was born into it. But she really quickly overcome it and go after what she wanted for a long time. And the claiming part...You know when a biker claims woman as his old lady? Well, damn, thats a smoking tradition Trojans have. That was a scorching part. Hmm, I feel a need to read that again. Oh, and another thing I want to mention is that, that there is mentioned some names you could recognise, if you are fan of Sams previous work. One of those names I adore and the another one I hated from the begining, when it was appeared in previous books. Curious? Go find out and fall for another biker club.
