This is the third book in Sam Crescent’s ongoing biker series, The Law Castle Bad Boys. As much as I love this author’s work, I hadn’t read this particular series yet. It seems that I’ve been missing out on something good, because I really loved this book. It was an entertaining story that really got me interested in the series. I was intrigued by the premise, and the setting, the small town of Law Castle, where the Bad Boys Biker club rules and people do their own thing and don’t judge others. I liked the characters and the story that the author told. I enjoyed the romantic conflict that drove the plot. This short novel had everything needed to keep this reader entertained until the end. The book opens with Tristan, the sheriff of Law Castle, trying to win back the woman he betrayed. He had a romantic affair with the much younger Vicki, then he made some bad mistakes and broke her heart. But he’s been hiding some things, inevitably the truth comes out and it hurts. The fallout was heartbreaking, and he’s not sure if his lover can ever forgive him. Vicki was way in over her head with the sexy sheriff, until she found out that he was married. She breaks things off with her lover, only to find out she is expecting his baby. Heartache follows as a violent event takes her baby, leaving Vicki alone and fighting some serious problems. Then Tristan wants back into her life. Can she ever trust him again ? Does she even want to try ? The story had a lot of romantic conflict that kept the plot moving for this reader. It has the usual drama, lack of trust and bitter regrets. Then just as the lovers are moving forward …. Tristan’s past comes calling. Tristan’s nasty ex shows up, she has ulterior motives and isn’t about to let go. The entire plot was strewn with romantic angst, and though it took a couple of predictable turns, it kept this reader anticipating what would happen next. I loved the characters in the story, which was surprising since I’m not really into the older man / younger woman romance. I found the story to be well written, exciting and sexy. Even more exciting were the insinuations of a BDSM relationship, though it was mostly done without the explicit scenes. The love scenes were exciting, with some anal play and light bondage. A word of warning to the discerning reader …. the love scenes were sexy and explicit. The plot was fast paced, with an adequate back story that was told in flashbacks, and perfectly paced throughout the story. I liked the way the author told the story. By giving the back story in flashbacks, Crescent helped this newcomer to understand everything that was going on in the story, without feeling lost in a complex and ongoing series. There was great focus on the secondary characters, building my interest for the next book. I found myself intrigued with the storm that seemed to be swirling around Stefan, Kevin and Marla. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, the way the story was told, and the way it played out in the end. It kept me entertained the entire time I was reading. I will point out that though this is the third book in an ongoing series, I found that it works as a stand alone book just as well. It’s quite possibly one that I’ll be reading again as I intend to catch up on the books that I’d missed. So yeah …. I will indeed be recommending this book to all.
The Law Castle Bad Boys, 3
Vicki Burke gave herself to the Sheriff of Law Castle, Tristan Carmichael. After falling in love with the much older man she learned a startling truth, Tristan was married to another woman.
Losing the only man she loved and their baby, Vicki tries to rebuild her life in Law Castle. She stops working at the local bar and starts working for one of the Law Castle Bad Boys. But her love for Tristan refuses to go.
For longer than five years Tristan was separated from his wife but didn’t request a divorce. He never expected to get involved with another woman or to fall in love.
His life is full of mistakes but his biggest mistake was letting Vicki go. Is there a way for him to win back her trust? And can he repair the damage with a divorce from a woman who refuses to give him what he wants?
Be Warned: anal sex, bondage
Vicki couldn’t believe she’d invited Tristan into her home. She’d been crushing on him for as long as she could remember. He was powerful, handsome, and everything she’d dreamt about in a man. Her parents would disapprove of the age gap. They didn’t want her to ever suffer, and so they tried to protect her the best way they knew how—by dictating everything she did. Staying in Law Castle was her only guarantee that she could live the life she wanted instead of what her family wanted.
She turned around and cried out as Tristan stood right in front of her. Vicki dropped the cups, and they smashed on the floor. He wrapped his hands around her waist and lifted her onto the counter. She couldn’t speak as his hands went to her thighs.
“I’ve seen you watching me, Vicki,” he said.
“I like watching you. You’re a handsome man.” Her voice sounded breathless even to her. She tried to hide her inexperience, but her whole body quivered at the touch of him. Her body had never known the touch of a man.
“Do you want this?” he asked. She knew what he was asking. How could she tell him she’d never had sex? This was all new territory for her. Her heart pounded as she nodded her head.
“I need a little more than that, princess. God, I want you so fucking much. I ache to be inside you.” He slammed his lips down on hers. Even with her on the counter he was taller than she was. His fingers sank into her hair. She moaned, closing her eyes as he ravished her mouth. The only way to describe the kiss was ravishing.
“Fuck, I can’t wait. I was only going to have a coffee and leave, but I need you. I need to feel your snug cunt wrapped around me.”
“Yes,” she said. He pushed the dress of her skirt up her thighs. Vicki moaned as he tore at her panties. There was no controlling him. He was like a force to be reckoned with. She didn’t want to stop him. If she was going to lose her virginity to anyone it was going to be Tristan. He was strong and caring. She’d seen him at the diner and during her walks through the town square. He cared about this town.
Her panties were gone, and in the next instant his cock was free from the confines of his jeans. Tristan was perfect. She’d seen cocks on the television and a couple of the porn movies she’d stumbled onto on the internet. Tristan put all other cocks to shame. He was long, thick, and the tip was leaking pre-cum.
She licked her lips, and Tristan chuckled. “There will be more of that later. I’ll fuck your sweet mouth soon.”
Tell him now. It’s moving too fast.
“Fuck, you’re wet,” he said. His fingers ran through her folds. She cried out at the slightest contact. “That’s it, baby. Feel what I do to you.”
Two fingers pressed to her clit, stroking her. She cried out from the pleasure.
“Please,” she said.
“Don’t worry. I’ll have you screaming for more.” His hands disappeared, and then the tip of his cock was running over her clit.
“So damn good. I can’t wait.”
You should tell him.
Before she got a chance to even speak Tristan plunged inside her. Vicki cried out as pleasure and pain combined. Her grip tightened on his shoulder.
He sank to the hilt inside her. She couldn’t believe how big he was. He shouldn’t be able to fit inside her. The walls of her pussy felt pinched from the pain.
“Shit, you’re a virgin,” he said. She closed her eyes. Tristan sounded angry. “Look at me.” He gripped her face in his hands. “Look at me!”
Opening her eyes she saw the anger and the lust shining in his eyes.
Vicki Burke gave her body and heart to the Tristan Carmichael, the Sheriff of Law Castle. Unfortunately, she learned a hard truth a little late, it seems that the sheriff forgot to mention one small little detail; he’s married. Betrayed by the man she loved, and losing their baby in a shooting, Vicki tries to rebuild her life in Law Castle. What she couldn’t have begun to imagine was how difficult that would be when Tristan isn’t about to let her walk away from him. Tristan Carmichael married in haste and he has been separated from his wife for years but he has never requested a divorce. He knew it was wrong for him to get involved with the innocent beauty Vicki but around her, he has no control. He might have a lifetime of regrets and mistakes but loving Vicki isn’t a mistake and he is determined to win her trust and capture her heart. But first he must fight for a divorce that his wife isn’t about to give him. The delightfully amazing author Sam Crescent continues her entertaining Law Castle Bad Boys series with emotion and charm, sensuality and wickedness this poignant tale is heartbreaking and riveting. The small town atmosphere, the people that make up the tight community of Law Castle including the hero and heroine, plus the tightly coiled plot pulls the reader along nicely. The Bad Boy’s Biggest Mistake is the perfect complement to the first two books in this engaging and sexually-heated series. Who doesn’t love or can resist a bad boy?

The emotional pull and impact alone between Tristan and Vicki makes this book impossible to put down. The struggles and the flaws that these two lovers must face make them seem real and the connection almost unbreakable.

I am loving this series! Tristan has some secrets from his past that he needed to work through. He loved Vicki but pushed her away because he thought she was too young. After Vicki lost their baby, Tristan was devastated. Tristan had to work to get Vicki to talk to him and Vicki had to learn to trust Tristan that he wouldn't lie to her. I really enjoyed this book!!
