SUMMARY
Trusting him could be dangerous, but loving him could prove deadly…

The Riding Irish Valentine's Day cookout is the perfect place to fall in love. Except Olivia doesn't have time for complicated emotions. She just wants a man who is capable of making her wildest fantasies come true. Problem is, she's convinced the twisted lover she desires doesn't exist in the real world.

The moment Swagger spies the mysterious woman who broke into the secret dungeon at the clubhouse, he knows he must have her. Even though he is drawn to her adventurous spirit, she isn't enough to make him forget his brutally killer past. Using the dark as his ally, Swagger is determined to give Olivia the experience of a lifetime. She may have no idea who he is, but her erotic surrender could be the key to finding a way to atone for his past sins.

When a freak tornado brings chaos to an already torrid love affair, Swagger will have to fight the blackness shrouding his heart and soul. The whole world may be falling apart around them, but Swagger will do anything to protect Olivia. Anything to make her his.

I am completely surprised by how much I loved this hero and heroine. I was not sure what to expect with a biker club BDSM contemporary romance, but Ms. Brookes has written a romance that delivers!

TWISTED IRISH (Sinner & Saints Book 4) by Sara Brookes opens at the Riding Irish Biker Club's Valentine's Day cookout on Oahu. Olivia Woo is invited by her boss from the tech company she works for, who also happens to be the president of the club. She is always chasing excitement, danger and chaos in her computer simulations and real life. Secretly she runs simulations of BDSM sex. She is not sure if it is right or wrong, but she wants to find someone to help her explore her fantasies. Looking for a place to evade all the men she is being introduced to at the cookout, she finds the club's secret basement dungeon.

Jon Swagger has worked hard to keep his darker side in check since leaving the Marines. He has been afraid that no one will ever understand his killer past and has only had casual sexual encounters, but the rest of the club is finding love and he finds that he wants that for himself. He is a DOM and designed the dungeon and a very special chair that plays an intriguing part in story. When he sees the blue-haired vixen, he is immediately drawn to her. When he catches her in his dungeon, he wants to give Olivia the sexual experience of her life. What neither of them expects is that they are exactly what each of them needs.

This is a short book that is full of empathy, exploration and love between the H/h. It does make references to previous situations from previous books in the series, but not enough to confuse or detract from this story. The sex scenes are well written and extremely explicit, sexy and hot. This story is well worth the read for a fast romance and romantic introduction to BDSM.

4 erotic and virtual stars for TWISTED IRISH!

Olivia Woo gladly lives her life in a VR coding wonderland, indulging her adrenaline junkie needs with chasing virtual tornados and skydiving without parachutes. When she's brought to her boss's Riding Irish MC clubhouse, Olivia can't resist the chance to sneak around and check the place out. But when Olivia finds herself alone in a sex dungeon, she takes the opportunity to indulge her fantasies. She has no idea she's being watched by Jon Swagger, who becomes more desperate for her the longer he watches... and then interacts... with her.

Swagger's darkness constantly threatens to pull him under, so Olivia's light is like a beacon for the former Marine. Her reactions to him and his machines knock him on his ass. And when she wants more? He's rather helpless to resist her and her unicorn leggings. But can Swagger take his demons enough to give a relationship a real shot?

I absolutely adore all of the books in the Sinners & Saints MC series, and TWISTED IRISH is no exception! It was fascinating that Olivia and Swagger didn't actually MEET until 69% through the book, though they had this bizarrely erotic clandestine BDSM experience where he kept himself hidden in shadows and used devices he could control remotely or touched her himself when she was blindfolded. I'm not a super fan of the insta-love storyline, but I went with it anyway. The last quarter of the book was more sweet and wild than sexy as the couple got to know each other, but the first portion more than made up for it! Pick up every book in this series, they're all just raunchy, kinky and delicious!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; BDSM/kink (toys, bondage, electronics); no sexual assault; some last minute violence and death by Mother Nature.

There are times when a hidden room is kept secret for a reason. Bypassing the security and sneaking in is all fun and games until you get caught. Olivia has a pretty awesome job with a deviant and cool boss. She works in a high tech company, kind of has no life and really enjoys the Virtual Reality (VR) machine they develop. Sure her kinky boss may use it for some non-HR friendly purposes, but he's the boss and he doesn't bother her. He does encourage her to get out once in a while and have a life. She takes him up on it and for Valentine's day, she joins him at a motorcycle club for some free food and bad boys.

Olivia is surprised the men are not as she imagined. She may be a bit disappointed because even if she's a workaholic, she does have a need for adrenaline. Why else would she be working on tornado chasing software? Bored, she finds the hidden room and plays with toys that do not belong to her. Enter in Swagger who catches this little break in and takes Olivia on a wild ride. Is it a category five kink level, like the tornados Olivia chases? No, but it definitely is smoldering hawt.

This story moves at a pretty fast pace which is to be expected as it is not too long. There is a fair amount of character development as Olivia and Swagger learn about each other. They share about their past with how they relate to their parents. Specifically how Olivia misses her mom and Swagger's mom wishes he didn't exist. Even with such different backgrounds, they find common ground. They are both adventurous and thrive in chaos. Ms. Brooks creates two loveable characters and delivers an erotic romance with plenty of sexual heat.

The kink in this story is for all the female submissives who like an alpha male bad boy with the heart of gold. Yes very cliché in description, but really, Swagger is the romantic bad boy we fantasize about. He is the quintessential book boyfriend to lust over. He gently introduces Olivia to kink. He seems to read her mind about how to turn her on when she can't verbally express herself. How many times as females do we yearn for this kind of mind reading? The chemistry between the two characters is electric. They do have a whirlwind romance complete with a literal tornado. The suspense which comes from Swagger's association with the motorcycle club that helps add that additional edge Olivia seems to seek. These two were made for each other and watching them fall for each other is sweet. Surviving a life threatening experiences helps them bond together. This kinky biker romance is recommended as a gateway to BDSM book. Rating 3.5 stars.
