Death Riders MC, 2

Along a dark stretch of night, Thorn stumbles across a building on fire and breaths life back into a beautiful young woman. Little does he realizes Chase comes with a whole heap of trouble, but soon he’s too invested in keeping her alive. Wanting to know all her secrets, he escapes with her to hide from the hitman sent to track her down.

Chase isn’t sure she can trust the big muscular MC man, but Thorn is a heap of temptation she can’t refuse. Especially once she begins to dream of him … premonitions of a future that become reality. And when she dreams of him dying because of her, Chase runs far away in hopes of saving him.

But what took her away also brings her back, and this time Chase knows that to hold onto a future with Thorn, she has to finally confront the danger trying to kill her.

Excerpt:

He headed over to his duffel bag and pulled out a black t-shirt. Tattoos lined each arm and across his shoulders. In the middle of his back was a full-scale Grim Reaper, holding the bloody rose, and all the air swooshed out of her body. She’d never met this man before, had certainly never seen him half-naked, so there was no possible way on earth she could’ve known about the tattoo. Had he taken his shirt off after he’d pulled her from the fire? She couldn’t remember, but she didn’t think so. Was she simply projecting her near-death experience into some weird out-of-body moment? Nothing made sense, but she was more than a little freaked out. He didn’t seem to notice her strangled silence as he slipped the shirt over his head and then used the towel to dry his hair. A moment later, he turned to toss it into the bathroom.

He turned and caught her staring. “What?”

“Tattoo,” she whispered. Her voice didn’t hurt quite as much if she talked quietly.

He sat down on the edge of the bed, very close to her legs. He was a buff, muscular man who took up a lot of space. All that separated them was a thin blanket.

“Yeah, I have a lot of them. Biker life, I guess. Something to do.” He shrugged. “I’m glad to hear your voice, even if it’s only a whisper.”

She pointed toward his back.

“You want to see it? Okay.”

He half-turned, lifting his shirt. There it was again. The exact same tattoo she’d seen in the dream … or was it a vision? Chase struggled trying to come to grips that something strange was happening, although she wasn’t sure what it was. Two times in a row she had dreamed something that had come true.

“Chase?”

She snapped back to attention. He had lowered his shirt once more and turned back around to stare intently at her.

“You okay, Princess?”

Chase shook her head. She didn’t know what the hell was going on.

Great book
Written by Kurtins-R on 25th Apr 2023

Thorn is the VP of his MC Club. Chase is on the run from something she shouldn't have seen. By chance, Thorn was riding his bike by the Chase's apartment building while it was an inferno with her trapped inside. Thorn and Chase are amazing and I definitely want to go back and read book 1 of the series to learn about Brim and Leia. The characters had heart and heat and I really enjoyed the fast-paced storyline. This was a quick and enjoyable read. I will definitely be reading more from this author going forward

Enjoyed this different kind of love story
Written by Sarah ES on 25th Apr 2023

This book was fantastic, especially because it wasn’t the same canned MC book that is typical!! Thorn and Chase started out with a weird connection and a life and death situation. Soon after they met it was almost Instalove, but not quite because there were things that Chase would not disclose to Thorn. After a separation period they made their way back to each other and ended the book with a HEA!!

5/5
Well written fast paced story with action and steam
Written by LBing on 25th Apr 2023

This was a great follow up to book one and continues with that flavour of the paranormal along with an MC romance. Fast paced, with fab characters, I read this story in one sitting. It features Thorn, whom we meet in book 1, and Chase, a gal with troubling dreams that seem to come true. There's a ton of action, violence, betrayal, secrets and steamy romance to make it a page turning read, and I'm really enjoying this series :D

4/5
Great romance, twists and turns
Written by Reensburger on 25th Apr 2023

It was my first time reading this author and I can guarantee it won't be the last! Thorn is the VP to the Death Riders MC, a little jaded by the drugs and free pussy, but still living to ride. On one of his late night rides he stumbles across a burning building, and going against his usual setting, which would be to leave and no bother, he runs inside and pulls Chase' body from the fire. He manages to resuscitate her and in doing so she starts having premonitions. This is where everything begins. She's being hunted by a hitman but has no desire to tell Thorn as she doesn't want him nor his MC to get hurt because of her. There's a lot of working to gain trust and Thorn is so light hearted and really good at reading Chase. This was a great book and had all the good stuff that a good MC has, steamy scenes, a little bit if mayhem and murder and an alpha male that will stop at nothing to keep his woman safe.

4/5
Good read
Written by Rani on 25th Apr 2023

Chase and Thorn
Written by CarKar on 25th Apr 2023

Chase was appropriately named as she was on the run for two years! This girl definitely has nine lives, being saved over and over. Loved Chase and protective VP to an MC, Thorn. Interesting story involving both Irish and Italian Mafia groups … struggle for power and territory. Loved the MC brothers … I am a new fan.

5/5
Premonitions
Written by RahiaLeight on 25th Apr 2023

I love that this series has just a touch of "magic" to it. Nothing fantastical, but enough to color the tale. The one question that wasn't answered - who was the woman in the turban? She's referenced at the beginning of the tale and a time or two later, but we never discover who she is. Will she make an appearance in another tale?

5/5
So steamy and so suspenseful--love this spicy combo!!!
Written by Andrea R on 16th Apr 2023

This was a fast and steamy read--loved the characters and their connection was really off the charts. The author was able to give so much without all the needless filler that wouldn't be needed. Really a great book--can't wait to see what happens next in this series.

5/5
Fabulous
Written by BecM on 16th Apr 2023

A great addition to the series. Thorn & Chase give us all the feels. Gunfights, blood, choas, betrayal, brotherhood, loyalty & love all wrapped in a nail biting moments. A quirky sense of humor our grey heroes have for sure.

4/5
A wild ride
Written by Megan C on 16th Apr 2023

Drama, mafia, motorcycles, romance! I didn't read the 1st book in the series and the author does an excellent job of explaining the characters. I will definitely be going back to read it now. A wild ride I wish was longer. I read it in almost 3 hours and I honestly wish there was more to Thorn and Chase's story. It was a thrilling ride with just enough drama and spice. I'll definitely be back for more in the series and other books by the author.

4/5
This book was such a good read!
Written by Krystal B on 7th Apr 2023

This book was such a good read! The story was very well written and the characters were very easy to like and had such good chemistry between them. I could not put the book down. I read it all within 6 hours. I'm not really a fan of instalove stories but I am definitely a fan of this one. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I read this in one night!
Written by Jessica H on 7th Apr 2023

I read this in one night! I stayed up until 3am reading it because I could not put it down. Thorn and Chase are amazing and I definitely want to go back and read book 1 of the series to learn about Brim and Leia. The characters had heart and heat and I really enjoyed the fast-paced storyline. This was a quick and enjoyable read. I will definitely be reading more from this author going forward.

I loved Shadow Kissed!
Written by Angela F on 7th Apr 2023

I loved Shadow Kissed! I was a tad confused about the timeline with Shadow Touched at first. Shadow Kissed actually begins before Shadow Touched (first release in the series) but it gets cleared up midway and doesn't actually impact the story. I loved the paranormal twist to the plot and Thorn and Chase had major chemistry! Carter does a great job of balancing the serious aspects of the characters' lives with a sweet (and sexy) love story.

5/5
Shadow Kissed
Written by Allison R on 7th Apr 2023

Thorn and Chase’s first meeting starts off hot, literally there’s a fire, and that heat continues to build throughout the story. As VP of a MC, finding Chase was never in Thorn’s cards but their chance encounter starts chain of events that mixes steamy and action suspense with a slight paranormal twist in the form of dreams. This is book two in the series, but starts off before events in book one, then catches up to the present (after book one). For those who did not read book one ( although I highly recommend it) this is no problem, but it was a little weird for me at first until I figured it out. It’s a fast paced, with loads of characters that leave you wanting to know more and fingers crossed that more come soon. 4 stars enjoyable read. I received an arc copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

5/5

Chase and thorn
Written by Jamee h on 7th Apr 2023

When chases apartment catches fire thorn saves her. He instantly falls in love with her but when he finds out who her family is can he look past it and still love her? This was overall a pretty good book I would recommend reading.

5/5
Thorn and Chase
Written by weaveswife on 27th Mar 2023

I absolutely love Beth's books. I love that they are a pretty safe read for me. There has always been minimal OW drama. Which I prefer. And I loved Thorn. He is VP of the Death Riders and could have any woman he wanted. He did back when he was a new member before he learned better. But his focus is his club and riding. That is until he saves Chase. Then she is his main focus. I was surprised their separation lasted so long. I wasn't expecting that. I will tell you that he had only kissed one woman in that time. I can handle that, mainly. Lol. He couldn't get over Chase. Thankfully she comes back. They are perfect together. I won't say anything about what happens with her uncle but it was exciting to read and well written. Just enough danger. And I loved the ending.

5/5
Love MC!!

Premonition
Written by Susan_C on 27th Mar 2023

There is someone dangerous after Chase. Thorn rescues her from her burning building but has to bring her back. Forces have pushed the two together. When a premonition forces her to leave Thorn. She finds her way back to finally end things and take care of the treat to her life. This book was soooo good. Beth Carter is a great author! This is my first book by her but I am definitely going back to read Brim’s story. This book sucked me in from the first chapter till the very end. I would definitely recommend Beth’s Death Riders MC series!
