Tory Richards is a long time favorite of mine and I jumped at the chance to read this book. I'm also a huge lover of all things MC related, especially steamy books like this one. Ms. Richards, once again, did not fail to disappoint me with her work. From start to finish of this fast paced book, I was hooked.
Rachel and Stone's characters were perfectly, and flawfully, chiseled for their roles. Both were strong willed and full of wit. They both quickly stole my heart and didn't let it go until the very end!
Rachel. Bless her. She was strong willed and gave up so much to save her sister. But her past is filled with so much pain and horror that I wanted to take it all away for her.
Stone. Oh my goodness, I want one of him! I loved every minute of page-turning suspense that he was a part of. His passion for Rachel was beautiful and evident and his heart, deep down, was perfect for her!
Characters aside, the plot line was amazing. It was filled with twists and turns and epic MC awesomeness! Ms. Richards has once again succeeded at leaving me thirsty for more 4 star work by her talented hands! I can't wait to read another!

I love MC romances/erotica. But usually there are two things about them that annoy me. The bikers are presented as badasses, but are really just big muscular teddy bears. And usually the heroines will be in great danger, but always escape with what amounts to a mere scolding as the worst of the damage. No one dies but the bad guys. No one gets hurt but the bad guys. It's all happy unicorns crapping rainbows.
I thoroughly enjoyed DARK MENACE MC - STONE by Tory Richards. A worried sister finds herself as collateral to a biker gang due to her efforts to protect her little sister. Along the way she and the MC president start falling for each other (of course!). He ends up having to go to war to protect her. That's the short synopsis. Sounds pretty cliché!
This one is done differently.
There is a delicious realism this author brings to the table that actually shocked me a few times. The characters are solid characters with weaknesses and strengths. They make mistakes and suffer for them. They do stupid things and look like complete idiots. Sometimes, people die because of them. There is real misogyny presented very honestly without exhausting handwringing about how awful it is. Of course it's awful, but it is also reality in MC clubs. The violence is real violence. People get hurt, people die. And evidence just doesn't magically disappear in the twisting nether, it has to be cleaned up and dealt with. The heroine doesn't whimper and wring her hands and cry about bad things that happen, but nor does she go all out bitchfest. The hero isn't a mind reader who knows exactly what she is thinking, and he has a temper that at times gets the best of him – with her. Real characters. Real reactions. This was absolutely refreshing to read.
I enjoyed this book so much that halfway through I bought more books written by the author. God help me, I have too much to read.
One thing I noticed, the ending is missing something! I don't want to give away any spoilers, let's just say the whole reason he and her fell together was never resolved. Perhaps it will be in a later book I haven't read or the author hasn't completed yet, I don't know. But it left me wondering.
All in all, an easy four stars.
