Review: Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde

First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels  Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew. Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before. Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before I start my review I want to say that I liked the book. I enjoy this authors writing style and that was no exception with Silver Bastard which starts off a new series..

After I finish a book I like to go and look at other reviews and one thing mentioned a lot is this book/series its centered around a town and not the MC life. Where I can see that some of the future books are going to be more about the Irish mob the core is still the MC life and how that affects the people in the town this series is about. Becca Jones the heroine of this book has always lived the MC life – the very ugly side of it. Her mom going from group to group until finally marrying a man in a not so good MC that resulted in her getting pimped out and raped at an early age until 16 when she is “given” to Puck Redhouse as a reward for him just getting out of jail and becoming a full fledge member of the Silver Bastards. Puck had no idea Becca was 16 nor that she had to perform at her stepfathers wishes. When Puck realizes what has really happened he takes Becca away from there and back to Idaho and puts her in the town of Silver Valley. During the next 5 years she is taken in by a couple who helps her try and get over her past and makes sure she finishes school. Puck doesn’t really have any involvement in her life but he’s always kept tabs on her.

Once the book jumps 5 years later and Becca is 21 and she is trying to make something of herself but is still haunted by her past and the occasional phone call from her mother still begging her for money along with trying to guilt her by saying she is being abused. Puck also decides now that Becca is of age he is tired of fighting the attraction he felt when he first met her even though he still feels the guilt for not knowing her age and circumstances. These two are like oil and water and rarely go 5 mins without fighting but underneath they care too much about the other..

As it’s the start of a new series we met some new characters along with a few old ones from previous series. The Silver Bastard’s MC is the protection of the small mining town and there are some shady characters trying to make some big changes that makes it to where the MC has to get involved.

This is not a hearts and flowers romance – its still deals with some dark issues but that’s what I like to read and I loved this start to a new series and am looking forward to more..
