First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Timesbestselling 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...
This edition only: A new Silver Valley story
Meet Puck & Becca on April 7th!
Excerpt from Silver Bastard
“The Longnecks—they’re the MC my stepdad hung around with—they kept a lot of club whores around. Do the Silver Bastards do that, too?”
“Yup,” she replied. “It’s a free country and the brothers bring guests here all the time. Some of them stick around, some of them don’t. Some find they aren’t as welcome as they thought.”
“Doesn’t that bother you?”
“Boonie’s dick is the only one that matters to me,” she replied, her voice matter-of-fact. “As for the women, I care less about who they’re sleeping with than how they act the rest of the time. Like I said, fuck with the sisters and you won’t last. Bridget won’t be back if she keeps this shit up.”
“Old ladies didn’t get to make those decisions in the Long- necks.”
Darcy smiled sweetly. “We don’t get to make those decisions in the Silver Bastards, either. Yet the right decisions still magically happen. Nobody knows how, really. Guess it’s just all our good karma coming back to us.”
My mouth dropped. Darcy winked.
“You think those men don’t need us?” she asked. “Boonie likes sleeping next to me. Gets cold and lonely when all the old ladies take a girls’ weekend in Seattle. Would be even colder and lonelier if we didn’t come back, and one time we forgot to for nearly a week. Fortunately things worked out and we found our way home again. Now things tend to work out faster.”
My eyes went wide.
“Do I look like a woman who will eat shit?”
“Let’s get this trash out. I’m sure Puck will be looking for you soon, and I want to make sure all the girls meet you first. That boy’s crazy about you—it’s cute. Like a pit bull crushing on a kitten.”
SILVER BASTARD has a little of everything perfect mix of sex, rough edge and humor. The humor was probably my favorite. This book has some heavy subject matter, and Jo added her funny personality, which made this pure entertainment!
“…my body shouted from somewhere deep inside my gut. No, not gut. This was definitely the va-jay-jay show.”
This is the first book in Jo’s new series SILVER VALLEY Series. I have been a fan of Joanna Wylde since I read Reaper’s Property, and she never disappoints. This is a author that I just know…right from page one, the book will grab me and suck me right in.
Puck is fresh from being in prison and isn’t really thinking about much, other than enjoying his freedom. What happens that first night he is out, sets the stage for the whole book. If you could have saw my face while reading the prologue it might have looked a little like this:
I was in it from then on, I needed to know where this couple would go, and how would they could get past that first disastrous night.
Puck is such a rowdy and intimidating presence, but the author has the magic of making you WANT him in that dirty little secret way. He was so crude sometimes and I liked it :/ LOL! The best part about him is he’s so commanding and bad ass, yet deep down he has this pure soft spot for Becca.
“Angry Fuck. That summed up what I wanted perfectly…Something dark and rough and free from any kind of concern for his needs.”
Poor Becca, this girl who’s had the most scaring, horrific childhood and Puck has a connection to that, so that is a major struggle for her. How does she deal with having this strong attraction to a man who she connects to such a scary time in her life. He was like her night in shinning dark armor. Becca was a admirable heroine, in that she didn’t fall into that damsel in distress/helpless category. I never once felt “here we go again”. There were a couple points in the story, I thought I knew how she would react and she DIDN’T! She pleasantly surprised me, and I was silently rooting for her each time. I am sure I have mentioned this before, but what makes a book for me is the heroine. I need to see a little of myself in her and I TOTALLY connected with Becca.
“Like she was dancing through life to some song nobody else could hear. Never met another woman like her-she wasn’t just sexy, she was a survivor and I admired that.”
Don’t get me wrong I LOVED the Reaper’s series, but there was something about Silver Bastard that has a fresh vibe, and great characters. I can’t wait for more! We get the perfect set up into the next book.
My advice – Don’t go into this book expecting it to be all bikers. It’s a whole new series, in a new town with all new dramas.
What a wonderful treat Joanna Wylde has given her readers with Silver Bastard. This high octane book hit all the right spots for me. It was sexy and erotic, taboo and forbidden, and so, so addictive! The explosive prologue throws you head first into The Silvers Bastards MC world and it doesn’t turn you lose until the very last page.
I REALLY adore Joanna’s heroines. I seem to instantly relate and connect with them, and Becca is no exception. Even though Becca comes from a rough background (and I mean extremely rough), she rises above it and grows to become a strong and resilient young woman that can handle a man like Puck Redhouse. One of the characters in the book compares Puck and Becca to a pit bull and a kitten. I thought that was funny yet pretty accurate.
“Let’s clear things up,” he said, his tone catching me off guard. “This isn’t a onetime thing. I’m claiming you, Becca. Already talked to the club about it – they know you’re mine.”
One of the things I love about this author’s MC books is that they do not follow a pattern or formula. Each book is unique from the others. The characters are different ages, at different stages in their lives, come from all different backgrounds, and have to overcome different obstacles. You never know where the author is going to take the characters or the story, so it’s always a pleasant surprise!
There was nothing I did not like about Silver Bastard. I loved it from beginning to end! OMG the freakin’ epilogue!!! It was awesome! And BONUS BONUS BONUS, the paperback edition has a special novella titled Charming Bastard and it’s about Boonie and Darcy! I loved it too.
