ARC REVIEW - Too Rough for Love (Steel Veins MC, #1) by Adair Rymer

Title: Too Rough for Love (Steel Veins MC, #1)
Author: Adair Rymer
Publisher: Blackened Wings
Release Date: 1 November 2014
Series or Standalone: Series
Genre: New Adult, Erotica


Attendant at her family's gas station and chased by dead-end boys, Star ached for an escape from her tedious routine. She was desperately looking for something she couldn't quite place. 
Then the deadly Steel Veins bikers rolled in, and she got more than she bargained for.

Her past now a smoldering wreckage, Star's only salvation from the the vicious gang lies in the ruggedly handsome, hard-case Remy Daniels. Despite all the horror and carnage, he keeps pulling her out of the flames. She needs to know why.
Even if it means wagering with her life.

A killer and a thief, Remy is torn between his duty to the club--the only life he's ever known--or the deceivingly fierce Star. She's unlike anyone he's ever met, and whether it's just lust or... something more, Remy is a man who takes what he wants. 
But to keep Star, he'll have to battle more than just crooked cops or rival gangs.

Adrenalin and violence has always numbed the pain, but not this time.
Not with her.
Can either of them survive his love, or will Star be just another speed bump on Remy's road to hell?

Book 1 in the Steel Veins MC Romance series, contains violence and dirty dirty sex and an alpha male hero who doesn't back down.

Approx: 115 pages, ends in a cliffhanger.


This isn't a long book, but nevertheless, it's definitely action-packed. The story takes place over what seems to be a 36-hour period, and there is definitely some violence that occurs. 

I, for one, was simultaneously pleased to have the story shown, not told to me (especially when it came to describing a couple of the fight scenes and the results from those scenes), but at the same time I found myself cringing when I was reading those results. It's hard to enjoy your pasta when you're reading about squishy body parts.

Now, was this sometimes over the top? Yes. Especially considering the choice Remy made at the end of the book. Also, what was the reason the Steel Veins ended up at the gas station that Star's aunt and uncle owned? That was never explained. When a member of the Steel Veins was killed at the beginning, we didn't learn until several pages in exactly who that member was in relation to Remy and Top (and their relationship to each other wasn't clear at first either).

Even with those minor details, I still found this to be an entertaining story and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series to find out what will happen to Star and Remy.
